Okay, so I am a little irritated tonight. I just heard awhile ago that the West Virginia House of Delegate Democrats passed H.B. 4490 with a completely partisan vote. This bill limits the powers of the Attorney General, and it helps the Legislature and Federal Government avoid the checks and balances the Attorney General's office provides (examples such as the overstepping of the EPA and attacks on our Constitution). Many reasons this makes me mad, so let me begin...
This year, while listening to committee meetings and floor sessions at the West Virginia Legislature, I overheard our elected leaders discuss the regulation of cupcakes in grade schools, the lighting in daycare centers, whether certain auxiliary lighting should be permitted on motorcycles, and redefining "scrap metal."
Last night, I took a couple hours to watch the Nye V. Ham debate. It was amazing! It was a classic debate showing exactly how things are today.
A new year, a new rant. The following contains rational thought and other various forms of intelligence. Viewers beware...
I was recently called uncivil. What was my uncivil behavior? I called a lie a lie in the face of a liar. If that is uncivil behavior, then I suppose I have been classified. However, I believe we have been given a magnificent heritage. Men and women have lived their lives in great sacrifice and given their last breath to secure a nation for our children. This nation they built was to be a beacon of hope to the world: A light of Liberty and a shining example for future generations. The foundation of that hope and Liberty is the Constitution of the United States. We have too long stood silent over the denigration of their sacrifice.
When people who wrap themselves in the flag and call themselves representatives speak lies and operate to destroy and ignore the Constitution of the United States they spit on that sacrifice. Is this behavior demanding of civil response? Would you allow someone to stand in front of George Washington, Sam Adams, or Abigail Adams and slap them in the face with no recourse? Yet day by day worse occurs. Our children are brain washed, our people are deprived of their God given rights, and our government is the chief perpetrator and violator! There is no distinction between political parties any longer. The only distinction that remains is those who support truth, Liberty, and the Republic by standing firmly in defense of the Constitution and those who will not. You classify yourself by your actions.
I have been called apocalyptic. Perhaps I should not shun that title because if you cannot see the day of reckoning coming, you are dead to this world. We have a Supreme Court Justice who has told her own nation and the entire world that the Constitution is a piece of garbage. The Constitution is the very document that stands between our Liberty and Oppression and a guardian of that document has called it trash. And what has been the response of the nation? Silence. Oh sure there have been a few of us that have been outraged, but what about our representatives? James Madison gave them the charge of being the sure guardians of our Liberty; where is their outrage? We have a Department of Justice that is busy arming our enemies to enable them to disarm the people. They have allowed the murder of our people on foreign soil without any apology or consequence. When questioned by Congress, they refuse to answer every question, evade responsibility and thumb their noses at the very authority our Constitution places over them. Do you not understand that when the Executive Branch refuses to submit to Congress, they are really refusing to submit to YOU? What has been Congress’s response to all of this? They have busied themselves with hearings, investigations and speeches, but no action, no consequences. This is nothing but smoke and mirrors to keep the people pacified while they seek and destroy the very foundation of our Republic. When will enough be enough? When will we, the possessors of our Liberty, by the Grace of God himself have the courage to stand in the face of liars and call them out for their lies?
Perhaps you are still hoping to get the pet piece of legislation passed? Maybe you are hoping to gain the favor of your paid employee to achieve some greater good? What is the price of your voice? Nay, what is the price of your child’s life? Do you moderate yourself for political favor? Do you compromise yourself for influence? Do you actually believe that your “civil” behavior is being rewarded by the pusillanimous in political office? You kid yourself. They shake your hand and give you a sweet smile, promising you only what they themselves want to accomplish. When you leave the office they laugh at you and mock you. They view you as weak, useful idiots that support their corruption and guarantee them a future full of greed and deceit. You have allowed this nation, with your behavior, to be betrayed by a kiss and 30 pieces of silver.
How much longer will allow this destruction to continue without challenge? I am convicted by the words of John Adams.
“Posterity! You will never know how much it costs the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that I ever took pains to preserve it.”
I will not make excuses for my behavior because there is NO EXCUSE to be made for standing for what is right and for the gifts that God has given me. I will not apologize for calling a liar a liar. Who was that liar? A member of the Florida Senate. OH MY, the crowd gasps, she has just called a “sitting senator” and liar! Blasphemy! May I use a word or two in response? Hypocrite…Coward. A Senator is someone who has taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. That is the oath that our framers took when they pledged life, fortune, and sacred honor to give us the gift of this nation. That is the price John Adams refers to when he reminds us of how much it cost to secure the Blessings of Liberty. That means you stand with the Constitution in the face of opposition, in the face of tyranny, in the face of ALL who even suggest trampling that jewel. It is not open for compromise; it is not open for irreverent change. Those who will compromise, criticize, or scorn the principles of Liberty are not keeping their oath. They do not deserve the title of senator, representative, or any other title bestowed by the power of the people through the Constitution they hate so much. The only titles they deserve are enemy of the Constitution and traitors!
Since those we have hired to protect and defend the Constitution are now refusing to do so, I will take that charge. Those of you who wish to apologize for my behavior; No thank you. You classify yourself by your behavior; I don’t need you to apologize for mine. Save those apologies, you are going to need them when you have to answer to future generations and explain to them how little their liberty meant to you and how easily you were bought. I call myself a Christian, not because I go to church, but because I have given my life to Christ. I call myself an American Patriot, not because I attend a tea party meeting, but because I have given my life to protect and defend the principles of Liberty that make this nation great. I stand firmly on the Constitution. I give no apologies, I give no excuses. The stand I take is an old one, I claim over 700 years of sacrifice for Liberty. I will not defend my actions for answering the charge to “secure the Blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.” I don’t need to defend my actions. If calling out a liar and a traitor is uncivil, then uncivil I will remain. Only those who will not stand or those dedicated to the destruction of the Constitution need to defend their actions.
Let us be clear. I will not cower, capitulate, or comply. Patrick Henry, Sam Adams, Elizabeth Adams, Mercy Otis Warren all deserve my life, fortune, and sacred honor. How will you classify yourself? Are you a Patriot or are you a politician?
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." Sam Adams

KrisAnne Hall is an attorney and former prosecutor, fired after teaching the Constitution to TEA Party groups - she would not sacrifice liberty for a paycheck. She is a disabled veteran of the US Army, a Russian linguist, a mother, a pastor's wife and a patriot. She now travels the country and teaches the Constitution and the history that gave us our founding documents. KrisAnne Hall does not just teach the Constitution, she lays the foundations that show how reliable and relevant our founding documents are today. She presents the “genealogy” of the Constitution – the 700 year history and five foundational documents that are the very roots of American Liberty. website
City Clowncil, led by David Ball , is trying to run Tom Roten off of the air by using the "hate card." What they hate is that Tom points it out when they do something he doesn't agree with.
The other day a Daily Mail story about West Virginia now being "a relative leader in the U.S. as far as banning the use of hand-held cell phones while driving – being just the 10th state to do so last year." [LINK]. I posted a throw away comment, "So that makes us on the bottom of the list for liberty? So much for Mountaineers are always free." -- and someone took me to task for whining about the supposed loss of liberty.
For those of you who have not read Machin's bill, aside from putting the rights of Veterans at the mercy of a VA beaurocrat, the real meat of the bill is in Section 122. Any private sale of a firearm that happens at gun shows, or on or near the property where a gun show is happening has to have federal blessing. But here's where Manchin lies to everyone. He's claimed it only applies to gun shows. Here's the reality. The language reads:
"pusuant to an advertisement, posting, display or other listing on the internet or in a publication by the transferor of his intent to transfer, or the transferee of his inent to acquire, the firearm."
So, if you post on facebook, "hey, I'm looking for a 10/22," or you send a message to a friend in email (could and likely would qualify as a posting) "I'm selling my 870," if you fail to do that transfer through an FFL it's five years in the klink and loss of your gun rights forever. If you so much as post a sticky note on a bulletin board at church, it's a "publication." The only legal way for you to let people know you had a gun up for private sale without a NICS check would be to walk up to them in person, somewhere other than at or near a gun show, and say "hey, want to buy a gun?" So yes, you'd have to act like the guys in Central Park. "Hey buddy... wanna buy a watch?"
This bill forces all transfers, except to family members, through an FFL and NICS. This is a registration framework. Period. And if it were law in December of last year, it wouldn't have done a damn thing to stop Sandy Hook.
Feel free to share this to as many as you can. Let people read that language. Let them understand that Joe Manchin lies to West Virginians every time he opens his mouth on this bill. Spread the word on what this bill really does, and how that traitor spits on Mountaineer liberty.
If anyone needs a better example of how out of touch the WV Legislature is, they need look no further than the Coal Miner's lunch pail. Or the college student's dinner plate. Or the local convenience store...
