History often repeats itself…
Most hear the name “Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn” and remember only that he was a Russian writer. He was the man almost single-handedly responsible for the world’s awareness of Russia’s Gulag (forced labor camp) System. He authored “The Gulag Archipelago” and “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.” among many other books…
Solzhenitsyn was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970. Unlike Obama, he actually did something to earn a Nobel Prize. He spent a life as an activist, a dissident, recording the paths taken by oppressive regimes. He stood his ground and he earned his scars.
While Solzhenitsyn was unmercifully tormented by the KGB, he arranged to have “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” published. Nikita Khrushchev actually defended it’s publication at the presidium of the Politburo hearing on whether to allow its publishing, and added:
“There’s a Stalinist in each of you; there’s even a Stalinist in me. We must root out this evil.”
Of Governmental Oppression, Solzhenitsyn said:
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking;
What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?
Or if during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers or whatever else was at hand?
(Remember that the Russian citizen had no rifles or pistols)
The Organs (organizers/authorities) would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt.
If… if… We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
Folks, there are those wolves in the night who think they know better than “We the People”…
These politicians (like Feinstein) move to the Beltway with empty pockets (in Feinstein’s case – a “paltry million dollars”) and miraculously end up with personal portfolios containing hundreds of millions of dollars while garnering immense power – all the while working a “Public Sector” job.
Where do you think that money, that wealth, that power comes from?
They get it, by STEALING it from you.
“Political Morals and ethics” are just oxymorons… jokes quietly spoken, rumors about what might have been… uttered behind half empty glasses of old Scotch or vintage Reds in rooms filled with expensive cigar smoke…
“Absolute power corrupts… absolutely.”
The next few weeks will demonstrate that there are those among us that seek to enslave us all…
The Patriot Act, NDAA, assaults on the 2nd Amendment… Plots and Mechanisms to allow direct domestic interference from the United Nations.
Borne on the backs of murdered children, terrible crimes committed by a broken man, these same people would imply that you, the humble gun owner, share similar ambitions. They would have you register in a manner much like any sex offender or sexual deviate, simply for requesting to own a personal firearm.
Go to Feinstein’s website and then read (carefully) her new “Gun Control” bill. She actively seeks to subvert and dismantle the 2nd Amendment.
Biden just announced that Obama favors it. Is that any surprise?
Feinstein said that she desired that;
“Mr. and Mrs. America – turn ‘em all in…”
She’s not talking about coupons or lottery tickets.
It was Adolph Hitler who said:
“To conquer a nation, you must first disarm the citizens. Nothing drives the people harder than the sudden fear of death.”
THEY are trying to build momentum.
THEY seek to disarm you, re-educate you, subjugate you, or incarcerate you.
THEY seek to turn “brother against brother” and “mother against child”.
There is indeed a storm coming… so you better get the umbrellas ready.
If you fail to act now, you have no one to blame later…
Thomas Jefferson said:
“The beauty of the 2nd Amendment is that it will not be needed… until they try to take it.”
It’s time that your Congressman and Senators realized that if they stray down this path, there is no future for them.
It’s time that the occupants of The White House realize that we will not lay down like sheep and be led to slaughter by the “Godless in Government”.
You only have to look at the actions of some of these politicians to come to the grim realization that they are indeed “godless”. Rather, they have made themselves into “token deities” not unlike Caesar…
Solzhenitsyn also wrote:
Over a half century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of old people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.”
Since then I have spent well-nigh 50 years working on the history of our revolution; in the process I have read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and have already contributed eight volumes of my own toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval.
But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat:
“Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.”
As students of history, we remember the oppression of citizens, the Secret Police, the horrors of the Concentration Camps, the terror of the Gulags, the crimes committed against man in the world’s darkest hours…
We, the American People, will not stand idly by as our children are made orphans, as their own rights and freedoms are callously stripped away. We WILL pave the road to their safe harbors, their futures… with our own blood if need be.
It is… what parents who love their children… do.
And we’ll use axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else is at hand… if need be.
To those who think otherwise or entertain “madness or folly”, we say this;
You shall not pass.
