Gunning for revolution
By Larry Klayman

Since the fraudulent re-election of Barack Hussein Obama as president – the "mullah in chief" not eligible to be president as he is not a natural born citizen – he has thrown his weight around as if he were our king.

First, virtually unopposed by a functionally dead Republican opposition, Obama rammed down the people's throats considerable income tax increases to modest and top income earners and small businesses, increased the capital gains and estate taxes and eliminated so called loopholes in the tax code – all to socialize the American economy by having these individuals and businesses "pay their fair share" as punishment for their success in a heretofore capitalist system. Now, like drunken sailors, Obama and his socialist flunkies on Capitol Hill, notably House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, promise that more tax hikes are on the way to further their march toward dismantling our free-market freedoms and the body politic of the nation.

Then, our first Muslim president cleverly nominated former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel to be the next secretary of defense, a man who while senator had a "proven" track record as not only an anti-Semite and hater of Jews and Israel, but also advocated rolling over to the neo-Nazi mullahs in Iran. Hagel repeatedly not only mocked and disparaged the so-called "Jewish lobby" that defends Israel in Washington, D.C., but also advocated not imposing sanctions, however worthless in any event, on Tehran for its onward and unchecked march to acquiring atomic weapons, which the Islamic regime's leaders have said they will use to wage a holocaust against the Jewish state and its people. Hagel is a truly repugnant man who fits in well with Obama's own not too latent anti-Semitism and antipathy toward Jews and true Christians in general. Incredibly, even the so-called Jewish lobby – headed by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), whose current president, Lee Rosenberg, is a sleazy "Chicago pol" and, not surprisingly, a friend of Obama – has rolled over to Hagel, and AIPAC has been rendered impotent in the upcoming confirmation hearing.

Finally, in the words of former Obama chief of staff and current Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel, not letting any good tragedy go to waste, our fraudulent president – by his own threats and through Vice President Joe Biden – has promised to his leftist supporters to act unilaterally and issue executive orders to extinguish or curb the right to bear arms guaranteed to all Americans by our Founding Fathers under the Second Amendment to the Constitution. The pretextual "trigger" for this: the recent tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., where young children were murdered by a mentally sick adolescent who somehow obtained control of his similarly murdered mother's firearms.

To lay the foundation for this unilateral act of defiance, abuse and usurpation of our rights, immediately after the Sandy Hook tragedy Obama announced and designated a so-called Gun Control Task Force, to be headed by "his pliant imbecile," Joe Biden. Since then, this task force, which constitutes an advisory committee under the Federal Advisory Committee Act ("FACA") (Pub. L. 92-463, 6 Oct. 1972), has met with special interests on both sides of the gun-control issue. The problem is, however, that these meetings are illegal, since they have not been announced with the 15 days notice required by the FACA law, and have excluded ordinary citizens. Instead the meetings are limited to special-interest lobbyists who are adept at lining the pockets of the Washington, D.C., political and legal establishment.

On Jan. 7, 2013, I filed a FACA request with the Office of the President demanding access to these meetings on behalf of not just myself as chairman and general counsel of Freedom Watch, but also all Americans who desire to participate. Predictably, I have not heard back from either Obama or his surrogates, so in the next few days we will be forced to file a lawsuit over this blatant violation of the rule of law. (Years ago, during the George W. Bush administration, when Vice President Cheney refused to open up his meeting with lobbyists on energy policy, I filed a lawsuit that made it all the way to the Supreme Court.) The people simply have a right under FACA and our Constitution to be privy to closed-door meetings with special interests who, without oversight, will pervert our legal rights to serve their own interests.

But quite apart from FACA and open government – to use the term government loosely these days, since in practice we no longer have a republic but a despotic monarchy – Obama's threats to use executive orders to remove or curtail our right to bear arms constitutes the final straw. It is in effect a declaration of war against the American people and our way of life.

For our Founding Fathers bequeathed to us the right to bear arms primarily to protect us, should the need ever arise, against a tyrannical government. Their primary motive was not to allow us to defend ourselves against random criminals and madmen like Adam Lanza, however useful guns would have been and are in this regard.

So when Obama and Biden effectively threatened to seize our guns, or even just curtail our rights to gun ownership, they are making the same mistake King George III made when he sent his armies to seize and destroy the weapons caches of the colonies, which they had amassed to defend themselves against a British crown that had also raised their taxes without representation in parliament and committed other acts of tyranny. This gun grab by the king was the final straw before revolution, triggering the Declaration of Independence and subsequent war.

The irony today, as it was in 1776, is that that these miscalculations by our rulers will in the end serve to be their own undoing and result in our liberation from their evil clutches. Let us pray that Obama and Biden and the likes of Pelosi and Reid are so stupid as to carry through with their threats, so that the masses will finally be provoked to rise up as they did in colonial times. It is time that their political ilk be legally removed from our nation's capital – along with their Republican accomplices like Chuck Hagel – before the nation is totally transformed and destroyed.

These arrogant, malevolent, political tyrants should thus take heed and beware of the words of our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence, that "In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act that may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be ruler of a free people."
