The Internet, our most effective weapon against Tyranny is under attack. That is why tyrants and dictators everywhere hate it so much. Almost as much as they hate the Right To Bear Arms.

Wikipedia: In common usage, the word "tyrant" carries connotations of a harsh and cruel ruler who places his or her own interests or the interests of an oligarchy over the best interests of the general population, which the tyrant governs or controls.
In the past few years there has been news from around the world about how often citizens of foreign countries have taken up the cause for freedom and opposed tyranny with cell phones and Twitter and Internet news and message boards to connect with others in their fight for liberty. Imagine how difficult the task would be if all their communications were taken away. America is on the brink of just such a revolution and for many years, while our news media has abdicated their journalistic responsibilities for a free press and turned itself into a state-run propaganda machine, the conservative blogs and web sites have continued to uncover the real news. While the truth is being denied and the facts are being hidden by those whose job it was to seek out and reveal them, the Internet has become the source for our most important communications. But now in this year, 2012, when we stand our last chance in November to overthrow the would-be dictators who want to CHANGE America, the tyrants have turned their attention to pulling the plug on the Internet and plunging our movement into darkness.

In recent months there have been several stories regarding threats to free access to The Internet. Read PC Magazine last month,
Don't Lose the Internet in July! FBI Repeats DNSChanger Warning

If you've still got DNSChanger on your computer, you could be in for a frustrating summer. The FBI has repeated a warning that as many as half a million computers still infected with the malware could lose their Internet connections on July 9 because the agency is shutting down an expensive workaround to the problem.

The FBI has been running DNS servers since last year to replace malicious servers used by a group of Estonians to conduct an affiliate and referral fee scam made possible by the DNSChanger Trojan, which diverted users seeking legitimate websites to sites the cybergang wanted them to visit in order to collect fees from their traffic.

About 100 servers masquerading as legitimate DNS servers were seized and shut down last November when law enforcement authorities working with the FBI arrested six of the seven individuals in Estonia responsible for infecting millions of Windows and Mac machines worldwide with the DNSChanger Trojan in what they called the "Operation Ghost Click" raid.
Two more stories appeared today, one that appears aimed at those freedom fighters opposing the Islamic revolution takeover in the Middle East. The other is about our own government leaders willing to turn over the Internet to the United Nations where a majority of nations are already trying to take away our 2nd Amendment rights.
World's most sophisticated cyber weapon burns computers in Middle East

Published May 29, 2012
The Wall Street Journal

Computer malware described as "the most sophisticated cyber weapon yet unleashed" has been uncovered in computers in the Middle East and may have infected machines in Europe, according to reports from antivirus researchers and software makers in Russia, Hungary and Ireland.

The malware, dubbed Worm.Win32.Flame, is unusual in its complexity, size and the multitude of ways it has of harvesting information from an infected computer including keyboard, screen, microphone, storage devices, network, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB and system processes.

And from the Conservative Daily:
VETO the UN’s Global Internet Censorship proposal!!
TELL CONGRESS you will NEVER accept United Nations control of your Constitutional Rights! We are a SOVEREIGN nation!!
We are all familiar with the United Nations (UN); ostensibly, a world moderating organization created after World War II to stop conflict and negotiate the issues that affect the world in a non-violent manner. In reality, it is a body that envisions itself as a world governing organization and believes it has the right to control the lives of everyone on the planet; including YOURS.

A careful look at the history of the UN will show the relentless expansion of its powers. Whether we are talking about gun rights, the environment, or technology, the UN continually cloaks its intrusion into our lives by using our own lawmakers to sell out our constitutional rights and United States sovereignty!

Now, the UN is raising the stakes and we MUST push back! Congress is currently discussing a proposal that would allow the UN to regulate and CENSOR the Internet, and with it, our First Amendment rights!! We need YOUR help to stop it!!

You read that correctly, Congress is considering a proposal that would allow the UN to govern, regulate, and censor the internet INSIDE THE UNITED STATES!!! This is as serious as it gets folks, we MUST not allow this to happen. Like Pandora’s Box, once the UN has control over the internal flow of information in the United States, it will NEVER give it up. Our national destiny, once the sole province of citizen voters, will be in the hands of the UN!!

The proposed Global Internet Censorship plan, being backed by Russia, China, and Brazil, would hand over governance and regulatory control of the world’s internet to the UN’s International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The ITU could take over control of YOUR First Amendment Internet rights as soon as December if we don’t stop them!!!

We need your help IMMEDIATELY. Congress will be holding a hearing on Thursday, May 31, 2012 to discuss these issues. We need you and everyone you know to fax Congress and tell them, in no uncertain terms, that ANY Congressman who supports ANY measure that cedes American sovereignty and freedoms to the UN will be kicked out of office in DISGRACE!!

Of particular importance is H.Res. 628, a bill which would PRESERVE our First Amendment Internet rights and would strip Congress of the power to hand over those rights to the UN! This bill was introduced by Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX). Rep. McCaul is a Republican Congressman with a strong conservative record.

We must let Congress know that we will NEVER accept UN control over our constitutionally guaranteed rights! I plead with you to fax Congress and tell them that this is NOT acceptable. The United States is a SOVEREIGN nation; we will not give away our rights!

Did you notice the countries that were backing this global internet censorship proposal? Russia, China, and Brazil; these countries ACTIVELY censor their own citizen’s internet access. Now they want to censor YOURS!!! Why do you think Putin, Hu Jinato, and Chavez are pushing this measure?! Because it will significantly weaken the United States!!

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) commented on the UN’s proposal earlier this month. Sen. Rubio stated:

“Any place that bans certain terms from a search should not be a leader in international Internet regulatory frameworks”

Sen. Rubio could not be more correct. If the United States agrees to the UN proposal, we WILL be handing our First Amendment rights to UN. 
As society leans more and more on technology in our day-to-day lives, the internet will continue to grow in importance as more business, government and personal transactions are handled electronically. Is it strategically wise, from a national security stand point, to allow the UN to have so much control over our nation? This must be stopped IMMEDIATELY!! 
DEMAND that CONGRESS VETOES the UN’s Global Internet Censorship proposal!! We are a SOVEREIGN nation and we will NOT allow the UN to trample our Constitutional rights!!

U.N. Arms Treaty is NOT binding since it violates the Constitution

Most Americans believe a treaty, once ratified, automatically becomes the undisputed law of the land. That belief is not necessarily true.

This is important to understand because Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and presidential usurper Barack Hussein Obama are relying on the proposed United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) to finally destroy the Second Amendment. Obama and Clinton, along with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Attorney Gen. Eric Holder are working diligently to strip law abiding Americans of their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Any treaty, to be considered legal and binding, must be made UNDER THE AUTHORITY, of the United States.

“From where do the President & the Senate get Authority to act? From The Constitution. The objects of their lawful (as opposed to usurped) powers are enumerated in the Constitution,” according to constitutional scholar and attorney, Publius-Huldah. “Thus, the President & Senate must be authorized in the Constitution to act on a subject before any Treaty made by them on that subject qualifies as part of ‘the supreme Law of the Land.’ If the Constitution does not authorize the President & Congress to act on an object, the Treaty is not ‘Law’ – it is a mere usurpation, and deserves to be treated as such.” Source: http://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/2009/09/

Officials of the federal government are NOT authorized to treaty-away or legislate-away our rights, including our Second Amendment rights. They are, in fact, sworn to uphold, protect and defend our rights. Attacking our Constitution, if it isn’t already, should be treason because it certainly gives aid and comfort to our enemies.

Many Americans have lost sight of the FACT that We The People created the federal government. Since it is our creation, it has no powers other than those WE granted it in the Constitution.

The Constitution wisely put chains on the powers the federal government is allowed to wield.

Thomas Jefferson stated clearly the federal government’s treaty power.
    In giving to the President and Senate a power to make treaties, the Constitution meant only to authorize them to carry into effect, by way of treaty, any powers they might constitutionally exercise. –The Anas, 1793. ME 1:408
    Surely the President and Senate cannot do by treaty what the whole government is interdicted from doing in any way. Parliamentary Manual, 1800. ME 2:442
It appears Obama, Clinton, Holder and Schumer are intent on destroying the Second Amendment. But the states and people have power to rescind such treason through nullification.(1)(2) More on Nullification, here:

The heart of nullification is embodied in Amendments Nine and Ten and leaves to the states the power to accept or reject a treaty.
    (1)The Ninth Amendment states, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”  It was designed to work with the Tenth Amendment to reinforce limits on the federal government.

    (2)The Tenth Amendment states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Jefferson again affirms that the legislature has the ultimate say concerning the implementation of a treaty.
    We conceive the constitutional doctrine to be, that though the President and Senate have the general power of making treaties, yet wherever they include in a treaty matters confided by the Constitution to the …. Legislature, an act of legislation will be requisite to confirm these articles, and that the House of Representatives, as one branch of the Legislature, are perfectly free to pass the act or to refuse it, governing themselves by their own judgment whether it is for the good of their constituents to let the treaty go into effect or not. –Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 1796. ME 9:329 [emphasis added]
In addition to international efforts to curtail and/or destroy the 2nd Amendment, yet another cadre of socialists/communists and “progressives,” are working to destroy gun rights from within.

In a May 9,2012 article on PrisonPlanet.com the Congressional Progressive Caucus announced it will introduce legislation designed to strip Americans of the right to defend themselves. Called “Stop Shoot First Laws,” the amendment to the Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill under consideration in the House would deny states federal funding allocated under section 505 of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 if they continue to allow citizens to defend themselves.

“Shoot first laws have already cost too many lives,” said Progressive Caucus co-chairs Keith Ellison and Raul Grijalva said upon introducing their amendment. “In Florida alone, deaths due to self-defense have tripled since the law was enacted. Federal money shouldn’t be spent supporting states with laws that endanger their own people. This is no different than withholding transportation funds from states that don’t enforce seatbelt laws,” the two socialists said.

Democrats are using “Shoot First” instead of “Stand Your Ground” in an effort to portray self defense as homicide. Apparently progressives think it is acceptable for criminals to shoot you but it’s not fair if you shoot back.

“The message here is if you have this kind of law that your federal funding is going to take a hit because they make states less safe,” Adam Sarvana, communications director for Grijalva, told Politico.

In other words, the Democrats would force states to choose between putting their citizens at the mercy of violent criminals or taking federal handouts. This is a dictatorial criminal act called coercion, or forced compliance through intimidation or threat.

The Congressional Progressive Caucus is the largest caucus within the Democratic caucus in Congress. It is supported by the Institute for Policy Studies, MoveOn.org (a George Soros funded group), the NAACP, National Council of La Raza (Soros funded), Hip Hop Caucus (Soros funded), and other liberal and so-called “progressive” organizations.

It appears at this writing that Stand Your Ground will withstand the attack, but it is illustrative of the lengths to which the progressives will stoop to destroy our Constitution, individual rights and freedoms. When it comes to gun rights we must all stand our ground. If the progressives succeed in destroying our gun rights we will all be at the mercy of criminals and government agents (excuse me, I repeat myself)
May I suggest a little history reading? Try out Thomas Paine's The American Crisis. In late 1776 Paine published The American Crisis pamphlet series, to inspire the Americans in their battles against the British army. He juxtaposed the conflict between the good American devoted to civic virtue and the selfish provincial man.To inspire his soldiers, General George Washington had The American Crisis, first Crisis pamphlet, read aloud to them It begins:
These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.
