Oh my goodness…it happened again! But, who in the world is to blame? That will surprise some…and anger others…and the ATF will just snicker. And more of our rights, liberties, and freedoms die…
Obviously I am referring to the recent move by the ATF to ban pistol braces…and potentially turn millions of US citizens into felons. Once that is done, then the FBI can get to work and SWAT raid citizens’ homes and arrest or kill regular, every-day US citizens…as the ATF & FBI have done before…its called “massacres.”
Sorry, I had a much more intellectual and informative article already scheduled for this morning, it was going to post at 9am. But, I delayed that till tomorrow…this I have to get off my chest. But, I had to wait till 5am this morning to start writing this post because I was so spitting mad last night.
The bottom line…the ATF had said that previously approved/legal AR pistol “braces” are now illegal. And if you own one you have several options…all cost huge money, all cost US citizen time, all are patently unconstitutional, and the ATF move serves one single purpose…to erode the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment. In other words…removing more guns from the hands of US citizens to reduce their ability to resist tyranny and oppression.
And interestingly enough…where in the US Constitution is the ATF even authorized? And where in the US Constitution does it authorize a federal agency to create law like the ATF just did?
Yeah, I didn’t think so!
But is this where it started? No. Let’s give a brief history of the origins of the ATF.
- In 1788 ratified US Constitution the ATF is not authorized.
- In 1886 the forerunner of the ATF was formed as part of a revenue generating scheme by the US federal government.
- In 1942 the ATF predecessor was given responsibility for enforcing federal firearms laws.
- In 1968, after the Gun Control Act, it changed its name again…interestingly, as part of the IRS. Yup, ironically the IRS is not authorized under the US Constitution either, nor is a federal income tax.
- In 2001 Pres. Bush transferred it to the Department of Justice (DOJ). And yes, as we clearly see now, the US Justice Department is corrupt to its very core and is little more than a weaponized agency for the US government.
And I would love to document the ATF’s extensive history of criminal activity, murders, and anti-Constitutional operations. But I am limited in time and space so I will get to my main points.
First, as already stated the ATF has no Constitutional authority to create law, which it did with its AR pistol brace “ruling”…the ATF doesn’t even have a Constitutional right to exist.
Second, this is just another move to ban guns, which we know is of paramount importance to reduce, then eliminate, the ability of US citizens to resist the implementation of a tyrannical all-powerful central government.
Thirdly, criminalize large portions of the US population. By doing so it justifies violent anti-citizen operations by the FBI & ATF. Thus suppressing political dissension through intimidation or outright murder of US citizens.
And who exactly is to blame for all of this?
To be fair…this latest move by the ATF is the fault of the Biden Administration and the weaponized DOJ under Attorney General Merrick Garland. But, that is just a result of a previous precedent. And that precedent was set by President Trump, his DOJ under Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, and the ATF at the time. Beginning in 2017/2018 Trump began the process that ended with Trump ordering the DOJ to have the ATF ban “bumpstocks” (a.k.a. “slidefire” accessory). Which the ATF gladly did…because the ATF hates and despises all things related to citizen guns, the US Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.
Ironically, at the time the boot-licking, Trump-worshiping, “politics-over-principles” folks openly supported the move. So tell me…who is to blame for this latest Biden/DOJ/ATF move?
Yup, the Trump sycophants who licked and slurped and worshiped at the idol of all things Trump! They abandoned the Constitution, they abandoned the Second Amendment, then abandoned principles to worship politics and Trump. And what did that lead to…any good at all or just more evil?
In all fairness…I will give some of them a pass because they didn’t understand the concept of a bumpstock/slidefire. Yeah, they were also ignorant of the need for guns as protection against a tyrannical government because they were ignorant of the American Revolution, the whole background of the US Constitution, and the wisdom and divine inspiration of the Founding Fathers.
All the rest of the bumpstock/slidefire ban supporters were/are simply big government lovers who wish to see their rights, liberties, and freedoms completely destroyed…and they are willing to embrace politics over principles.
Just a little background on the ATF, a couple salient points to ponder:
- It was the ATF who started the ball rolling on the Ruby Ridge Massacre…where a woman and child were murdered.
- It was the ATF who started the Waco operation where US civilians/citizens were murdered by ATF agents in the initial raid…and then later nearly 80 men, women, and children were burned alive.
- From 1972 – 2001 a Congressional investigation found that 75 percent of ATF gun prosecutions were aimed at ordinary citizens who had no criminal intent…and the ATF virtually ignored street level, gun-related criminal activity.
- In 2008, under the Fast & Furious operation, the ATF transferred 2,500 firearms to Mexican Cartels. One of those weapons was used to assassinate Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who reportedly was going to expose the ATF gun running operation in its entirety.
- In 2011 it was revealed to Congress that the ATF systematically retaliated against any ATF personnel who became, or intended to become, a whistle-blower against the ATF.
- In 2022 it was revealed that “thousands of firearms, firearm parts” were stolen from the ATF’s National Firearms and Ammunition Destruction facility…and only ATF agents and ATF employees had access to those facilities.
So tell me again…what exactly is the purpose of the ATF? Why do we allow a radical and extremely violent Federal Law Enforcement agency to even exist…an agency that isn’t even authorized in the US Constitution!? And why do both Democrat and Republican Presidents support the ATF…and use the ATF to destroy rights, liberties, and freedoms?
And yes, lastly, why were so many so-called patriots, preppers, and constitutionalists so willing to lick the boots of, kiss the butt of, and continually worship Trump even when Trump was using the ATF against the rights, liberties, and freedoms of US citizens?
I will tell you why…they placed politics over principles…and exposed themselves as being more interested in worshiping a person than maintaining correct principles.
I am telling to point blank…we are closer to the “wrapping-up” than any of us can even imagine.
I ask you…

“Sounds like you are advocating violence against the ATF?????”
This came in anonymous…but I have a clear feeling it is a set-up.
Let me be clear…go to the end of the post and what do I “advocate”? Yup, prayer…clear as day. Never did I mention/promote any violence towards the ATF, or any federal law enforcement agency, at any time. I actually haven’t even called for resistance to those agencies. I am simply exposing them, expressing my opinion(s), and, if anything, I am advocating for a return to the Constitution. But I imagine that qualifies me on any number of their lists all the same.
Look at what happened to the wife and child of Weaver when they ATF & FBI attacked them at their home? Look at what happened to the folks in Waco when the ATF & FBI attacked them at their home and they resisted? Do you want that to happen to you and/or your family? I don’t want that to happen to anyone!!
Have your response plan and train if till it’s automatic. Gather like minded neighbors for the same, and mutual support. And finally remember when they come for you keep repeating to yourself, “hips n heads, hips n heads, hip n heads”.
The tree of liberty WILL be fed with blood if it is to survive.

In a 1787 letter to William Stephens Smith, the son-in-law of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson wrote,
“What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
Thomas Jefferson was a staunch opponent to tyranny, oppression, and rulers…a true Founding Father!
He also penned the Declaration of Independence which begins with,
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
Amazing!!! But then again, these Founding Fathers, including Jefferson, had witnessed first hand the wickedness and evil of the British, Dutch, and French Empires. They knew what tyranny looked like.
We have let the federal government to get too big. I fear that the LWAM has been pacified by wimnez, the church, and ethic society

Far too big, far too powerful, far too expensive.
Our Founding Fathers would be ashamed of what they would see now in our government.
The US has become what they feared, fought against, and defeated.
So here starts the text messages…
“R u trying to p*$$ off all the Trump supporters?”
So this is from a person that I know and consider a friend and supporter, I will be gentle…
To qualify for my rather blunt descriptors a person must fall into ALL of the following categories:
1) Be a Trump supporter, and,
2) Have literally/figuratively worshiped him, and,
3) Be willing to over look his faults, and,
4) Figuratively kissed his butt and/or licked his boots, and,
5) Not objected to his anti-Second Amendment order.
If a person qualifies under all 5 items listed above…then my comments/insults apply to them.
Does that clarify it for all those who can’t read and understand English?
