Covert Amnesty Plans exposed

GrassTopsUSA Masthead

An Obama Amnesty Decree Is Imminent... Obama Caught Covertly Planning To 'Legalize' Up To 34 Million Illegal Aliens!

       Jessica Vaughan, a former State Department officer who is now an immigration expert at the Center for Immigration Studies, let the cat out of the bag, when she came across an October 6, 2014 bid solicitation, issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), seeking a vendor who can produce up to 34 million blank green cards and work permits.

       Congressman Lou Barletta (R—PA) is accusing the Obama Regime of "covert actions to prepare for tens of millions of amnesty cases" and says this bid solicitation is "proof that the groundwork is already being laid to grant amnesty post-election to millions upon millions of people who have broken our laws to enter this country."

       Senator Jeff Sessions agrees: "This revelation provides startling confirmation of the crisis facing our Republic" and he added that this covert amnesty scheme "will reduce your pay, increase your tax bill, and squeeze millions of Americans out of the middle class... We need to help struggling Americans find good jobs and rising pay — not import more low-wage workers to replace them... This is where we draw the line. This is where we make our stand."

       And Sessions issued the following clarion call: "You have the power to send a bolt of lightning that will send shock waves through Washington DC. You have the power to tell Obama and his open borders extremists: NO." But time is short. Unless you take action now, you can be sure that Barack Obama will attempt to pull the trigger on his massive covert amnesty scheme after next week's election.

Self Sufficient

Dear Survivalists,
What does it mean to be truly self-sufficient?
For me, it means knowing that what I have can't be taken away from me.
Knowing that no matter what happens, I will have the skills and the knowledge to protect and provide for my family at all costs.
Our friends at Pioneer Settler have put together a list of 121 things you can do to become more self-sufficient.
In this article: 121 Homesteading Skills for the Modern Day Homesteader, including:
  • Caring for livestock
  • Growing, harvesting, canning and preparing food
  • Home remedies and first aid
  • And more
Becoming fully self sufficient isn't something that happens overnight.
It is a process consisting of little things you do every day to build a self-sufficient lifestyle.  It may take weeks, months or even years to become fully self reliant, but these 121 tips are a great place to start.
Remember, we're all in this together!

I-594 Supporter

TO Nick Hanauer, nick@secondave.com 

Sir:

I find your most recent comments and behavior to be not only wrong-headed, but offensive.  I believe you owe the people of Washington State a genuine public apology for your action.  You suggest that we need more school shootings.  Shame on you.  Not only do you promote outright falsehoods, but NOW you are moving with a mean spirited animosity against honest citizens and dedicated public servants simply because they do not agree with your agenda. 

I just finished watching a video clip on the news of Mayor Bloomberg, the money-man behind I-594 , telling the people in NY two years ago that Hurricane Sandy was not going to be a problem and there was nothing to be concerned about.  Boy, was he wrong.  Everyone knows that now, but is a little late.  Those that have taken the time to read the I-594 proposal can easily see how wrong IT is too. 

You would do a lot more for public safety on gun issues if you would stop trying to force your hoplaphobia on others.  Take a four day handgun course like the one at Front Sight in Nevada.  Would you be willing to do that if someone granted you the cost of the course? The owner and founder of Front Sight, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, has given free classes to many others of your present persuasion.  One way or the other, may I suggest that you concentrate on the enforcement of existing gun laws rather than trying to re-invent the wheel?

Widow's nightmare I-594

This is a different slant on I 594 but it should get the attention of every woman who might become a widow.
I 594 is a widows worst nightmare.

Initiative 594, page 13 requires that upon the death of a firearm owner, the spouse has 60 days to take any and all of the diseased spouse's firearms to a dealer to have a background check run on her for each firearm.  If this doesn't take place, she is in non-compliance with the law.

Page 15 states that an individual will be prosecuted on a weapons felony charge for each firearm they are in non-compliance with.  If the estate involves 5 firearms, they can be prosecuted 5 times. In many cases, the spouse is not the Executor of the Estate.   This person is often a relative or close or trusted friend.   In any case, either one has but 2 months to transfer the ownership of the firearms.   This is an unrealistic requirement for a grieving spouse who has to deal with the diseased medical bills, grief, stress, possibly having to move to a less expensive home if the deceased was the bread winner, and then there is dealing with grieving children.   In many estate cases, firearms take a back seat and don't get addressed for several years.

In many cases, a relative or a close friend is assigned via the will to be the Executor of the Estate.  This is the person who is responsible for dealing with the estate, including the firearms.   There's a good possibility this person can't begin the proceedings for several months due to health reasons or distance, say living out of state.  I 594 leaves this issue as a landmine waiting to trap the innocent people who are just trying to do the right thing.

Another problem can take place when the surviving spouse or the Executor of the Estate takes the firearm or firearms to a dealer and for whatever reason, doesn't pass the background test.   I 594 requires that the firearm dealer shall not return said firearm or firearms to that person.   If and when this takes place, in effect $2,000 to $5,000 (if 5 firearms are involved) is confiscated from the estate.   I 594 doesn't contain any language concerning how long the firearm dealer will store these firearms or that he shall not sell them.

Page 10 contains the requirement that if the firearms are being transferred to a person from out of state, that person is required to wait 60 days to take delivery of the firearms.  Once more, if the Executor of the Estate is from out of state, he/she is required to wait 2 months to take delivery of the firearms.  In many cases, the surviving spouse has to come from out of state.

Whatever person decides to take possession of the firearms, no matter how temporary, they need to take them in for the personal back ground check.  If that person for whatever reason doesn't pass the background check, they darn well better have an individual with them who can because if they can't, they legally can't have the firearms and the firearms are retained (basically) confiscated by this law.  This is just what a grieving spouse needs to be confronted with.

I 594 is just a legal land mine that's going to criminalize more folks than people believe.  A few firearms is the last item of importance when a spouse is confronted with a sudden death, they are overwhelmed with grief, and more problems than most can imagine.

I 594 is a surviving spouse's worst nightmare designed to entrap him or her in a legal quagmire, not to mention the trusted friend assigned to be the Executor of the Estate.

VOTE NO ON I 594
 Feel free to send this to all of your friends and family members who live in WA.

6 words I won't forget

USCCA
When your family's safety is on the line...

Quick reminder: Video and download #3 in the
Responsibly Armed American Training series is currently LIVE.

So if you haven't yet already, I'd urge you to
to view the video, download the free guide, leave
a comment, and even share it with friends and family.

Because the harsh reality is that you never know when the unimaginable could occur.
But guess what...?

The unimaginable happened to Jon (USCCA member from Indiana) just a few days ago...


Here's the chilling details...
On the morning of Oct. 3rd, 2014, my house was entered by two men who were intending to rob our home. This happened at 2:30 in the morning and my 10-year old daughter and 8-year old son were asleep, as well as myself and my wife.
The two thugs entered in through an unlocked window in our sunroom and were in my kitchen when my daughter woke up and heard the two men talking. She knew it wasn't my wife and I having a conversation so she got up and walked into the living room where she saw the two men standing there. She immediately, in a terrified little girl voice, yelled the words that I think will forever stick with me...

"Daddy, there's somebody in the house!!"


Both men ran, but in opposite directions. One went back out the easy way and the other tried to get out through my garage entry door, which happened to be right outside my bedroom.
My wife and I jumped up from a dead sleep and she stormed in to make sure our kids were safe. I grabbed my legally owned Springfield XD from my nightstand and was right behind her prepared to STOP ANY THREAT that was in my house.
Luckily for the two thugs, the time it took my fingers to press the four button code on my nightstand safe was what saved their lives. They both made a clean escape out the window they came in. Nobody was hurt, I didn't have to defend my family with my gun and the two thugs got away with my wife's wallet out of her purse and a school computer. Both pretty worthless to them.
The reason I am sending you this story is that I want EVERYONE to know the peace of mind I IMMEDIATELY felt as soon as I grabbed my gun to defend my family. I know that if I had to use my gun that the USCCA had my back! So with that being said, thank you Tim Schmidt for starting the USCCA, you definitely have a lifetime member.
-- Jon C., Indiana
I don't know about you, but any time I hear about a
responsibly armed American coming out on top just makes my day...
However, this true story begs the question...

What if the thugs didn't flee?
What if he had to discharge his weapon?

Have you ever thought about something like this happening to you?

The thing is, Jon's story isn't unique.

Every day across America, responsibly armed citizens just
like Jon are using the 3 Pillars of Self Defense in their day-to-day lives.

And it's these very 3 Pillars of Self Defense that
transformed Jon from a potential victim into a hero for his wife and kids...

I know Jon would agree that responsibly armed
Americans NEVER want to have to pull the trigger.

But that doesn't mean that we'd be in the least bit
reluctant to do it if our family's safety were on the line.

Find out what you need to do to be prepared if you're ever forced to defend your family...

Autopsy Results

BREAKING: Michael Brown Official
Autopsy Results are In; Will this Finally
Stop the Protests?

Ferguson Riots
The results of Michael Brown’s autopsy are in and, given the series of events in the St. Louis area by Brown supporters and threats they have vowed to act on if Officer Darren Wilson isn’t indicted for his murder, the St. Louis and Ferguson area should perhaps brace itself for more violence from the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” Michael Brown devotees.


After the shooting, Officer Darren Wilson said that Brown reached for his gun and fought him for control of it. Wilson suffered major damage to his face during this altercation and fight for the gun. Fearing for his life, Wilson said he shot at Brown. Recent eyewitness testimony to the grand jury corroborated Wilson’s claims. Now, the official autopsy report appears to do the same.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports on the autopsy which concluded that Michael Brown was shot in the hand at close range, which supports Wilson’s story that Brown was fighting him for control of the gun. Dr. Michael Graham, St. Louis medical examiner, said that the autopsy does support that ‘there was a significant altercation at the car.”

Foreign matter on a thumb wound, according to San Francisco forensic pathologist, Dr. Judy Melinek, “supports the fact that this guy is reaching for the gun, if he has gunpowder particulate material in the wound. If he has his hand near the gun when it goes off, he’s going for the officer’s gun.”

A recent New York Times article that disclosed that Brown’s blood was found on Officer Wilson’s gun ignited further unrest in Ferguson with Brown supporters unhappy with the evidence. The additional evidence from the autopsy report will likely not sit well with them either. It shows that the fatal shot to Michael Brown was not from a distance in the back of the head as Ferguson protesters have claimed.
Melinek also said the autopsy did not support witnesses who have claimed Brown was shot while running away from Wilson, or with his hands up.
She said Brown was facing Wilson when Brown took a shot to the forehead, two shots to the chest and a shot to the upper right arm. The wound to the top of Brown’s head would indicate he was falling forward or in a lunging position toward the shooter; the shot was instantly fatal.
A sixth shot that hit the forearm traveled from the back of the arm to the inner arm, which means Brown’s palms could not have been facing Wilson, as some witnesses have said, Melinek said. That trajectory shows Brown probably was not taking a standard surrender position with arms above the shoulders and palms out when he was hit, she said.
Ever since the August 9, 2014 shooting of Michael Brown by Police Officer Darren Wilson, there has been the accusation that Wilson shot Brown in the back in cold blood after Brown put his hands up. Riots ensued with major damage done to private property. In two months, spurred on by Activist Attorney General Eric Holder saying he stood with the protesters in Ferguson, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton repeating the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ meme while accusing police of widespread brutality and convicting Wilson as guilty, the protests have not stopped.

Barack Obama even spoke about the Michael Brown shooting in a speech before the United Nations saying that it is evidence that the United States has ‘our own racial and ethnic tensions’ that compare to the sectarian genocide and ethnic cleansing plaguing the Middle East.’

Violence has continued with protesters interrupting the daily life of people unconnected to the shooting. They have chanted for the killing of Darren Wilson and threatened that there would be more violence if he is not indicted. Even the Democrat governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon, called for the vigorous prosecution of Officer Wilson before an investigation had even begun.

With the official autopsy report not supporting the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” narrative that has been claimed by Brown supporters, how will the Ferguson community, and those outside agitators who have remained in the area to fuel the unrest, respond?
