After nationwide calls to ban assault rifles and high-capacity magazines following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Americans concerned about the government’s coming move to restrict the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession of firearms deemed too dangerous to be in the hands of private citizens are cleaning out gun stores from coast to coast.

While some retailers have made the decision to suspend sales and stop selling certain firearms altogether, others are seeing sales skyrocket to never before seen levels. Parking lots are packed and hopeful shoppers are waiting hours for their chance to get their hands on weapons, parts and magazines that may soon be banned under Federal mandates.

The following photos taken over a three day period at a local gun store give us a glimpse of just how fast gun stores are clearing out their inventory. According to the shop owner who took these pictures, their store was selling upwards of one thousand guns per day.

Here’s how the store looked on the Sunday before the frenzy:

On Monday:

By Tuesday, shelves were almost clean:

Magazines, especially high capacity magazines, are selling at such a rapid pace that supply and demand has led some retailers to charge three times as much for a single magazine then they did just a week prior to the frenzy....

Top Online Gun Retailer Suspends Sales of Firearms, “Effective Immediately” – Hayden’s Note Attached

Online retailer Cheaper Than Dirt!, one of the world’s largest sporting goods stores and a top online gun distributor, has suspended sales of firearms as of Tuesday.

Hayden’s Note:

Want my opinion? Of course you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be here. Ami’rite?

Here goes: Cheaper Than Dirt, being one of the largest online weapon sellers, gets wind of what’s coming down the pipe regarding how gun purchases are made and decides to get ahead of the curve by adjusting their e-commerce approach and sales protocols.  If, and this is a big IF – the White House and Powers That Be implement any sort of weapon ban, you can be sure that online sales, if still legal in any form, will radically change.  This represents a massive investment for companies such as Cheaper Than Dirt. Imagine redesigning your entire business’ way of making money, and you realize in order to minimize down time, they better get to work.

This also suggests to me, and I rarely talk about “Obama gun bans”, that it is hurtling down the proverbial pipe at warp speed and something concrete will be enacted sooner, rather than later.

Hayden’s Note on the Connecticut Shootings, Dead Babies, and US Foreign Policy

Posted on Dec 14, 2012 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Global & National News, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

I was approached by a reader of the website last night who lamented on my lack of personal commentary lately.  He added that he had hoped to hear my opinions regarding the Presidential election and other current events, but that TruthisTreason.net had completely ignored politics recently.  I had to agree; I have intentionally avoided the typical political commentary because, quite frankly, I’m moved beyond that for the most part.  For years, I waved my signs, took part in street actions to raise awareness, wrote articles, and took part in the election cycle as a state delegate.

These days, I’ve simply let go of the stranglehold that politics has on so many Americans. It no longer concerns me because I feel as though we are too far gone to ever get back on track, and so aside from the occasional piece on national events, I doubt you’ll see “in-depth” coverage on the Left vs. Right Paradigm; the stage show known as American politics.

However,

In wake of today’s shooting events, I wanted to take a moment to share some opinions and perspectives on not only the direct topic, but the bigger picture, as well....

Israeli Airstrike on Home ‘Was a Clear Violation of the Laws of War’

An Israeli airstrike that killed 12 civilians – the largest number of civilians killed in a single attack during the Gaza fighting in November – was a clear violation of the laws of war.

On November 18, 2012, Israeli forces dropped what appears to have been a large aerial bomb on the three-story home of the Dalu family in Gaza City, killing 10 members of the household – one man, five women, and four children. A young man and an elderly woman of the Muzannar family next door were also killed.

At first the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said they were attacking a Hamas fighter named Yahia Abayah. Eight days later the IDF said the target had been the man killed in the house, Mohamed Jamal al-Dalu, whom they called a “terror operative” for Hamas without providing supporting information. Even if al-Dalu, a low-ranking police officer, was a legitimate military target under the laws of war, the likelihood that the attack on a civilian home would have killed large numbers of civilians made it unlawfully disproportionate, Human Rights Watch said....

As I have been immersed in writing ‘Patriot Dawn’, it occurred to me that I have not posted recently, so I pulled this excerpt out of Rapid Fire!: Tactics for High Threat, Protection and Combat Operations.  I was writing about an urban defense/battle scenario as part of the storyline, and this came to mind.

This is merely a way of pulling off a dismounted, anti-armor ambush. The described technique assumes that you have some form of anti-armor weapons system, such as a rocket.

Urban Anti-Armor Ambush

The aim of the anti-armor ambush is to destroy some or at minimum one advancing enemy armored vehicle and escape, not take on the whole enemy column, thus slowing them down and causing harassment and attrition.
The urban anti-armor (anti-tank) ambush is a specialist technique designed for an urban environment. Such an environment has, by design, streets, buildings, side streets and alleyways. These side streets or alleyways create natural defilade. They also create multiple decision points for the approaching enemy armor. The elements of an urban anti-armor ambush are the early warning, kill team, and cover group....

A bill condemning detention provisions written into the National Defense Authorization Act and blocking any state cooperation with federal agents attempting to detain people in Michigan without due process unanimously passed the Michigan House Wednesday.

HB 5768 declares, “no agency of this state, no political subdivision of this state, no employee of an agency of this state or a political subdivision of this state acting in his or her official capacity, and no member of the Michigan national guard on official state duty shall aid an agency of the armed forces of the United States in any investigation, prosecution, or detention of any person pursuant to section 1021 of the national defense authorization act…”

It passed 107-0.

Bill sponsor Rep. Tom McMillin was jubilant after the vote.

“My bill opposing NDAA’s indefinite detention, and taking away due process, and prohibiting the Michigan government from participating passed the House today. On to the State Senate,” he said.

A large coalition of grassroots activists spanning the political spectrum, including the Tenth Amendment Center, supported the bill and lobbied for its passage....

Private, For-Profit Corrections Corporation of America Used in Drug Sweep of Public School

Posted on Nov 29, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

While such “drug sweeps” have become a routine matter in many of the nation’s schools, along with the use of metal detectors and zero-tolerance policies, one feature of this raid was unusual.

According to Casa Grande Police Department (CGPD) Public Information Officer Thomas Anderson, four “law enforcement agencies” took part in the operation: CGPD (which served as the lead agency and operation coordinator), the Arizona Department of Public Safety, the Gila River Indian Community Police Department, and Corrections Corporation of America (CCA).

It is the involvement of CCA — the nation’s largest private, for-profit prison corporation — that causes this high school “drug sweep” to stand out as unusual; CCA is not, despite CGPD’s evident opinion to the contrary, a law enforcement agency.

Hayden’s Note:

Companies such as CCA are literally traded on Wall Street according to the number of prisoners they have in their “custody.” Think about that for a minute and let it really sink in.

“To invite for-profit prison guards to conduct law enforcement actions in a high school is perhaps the most direct expression of the ‘schools-to-prison pipeline’ I’ve ever seen,” said Caroline Isaacs, program director of the Tucson office of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker social justice organization that advocates for criminal justice reform....

Congress Making it Nearly Impossible to Pass on a Farm to Your Children – 55% Estate Tax

Posted on Nov 22, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Economic News, Political Issues, Urban Gardening, Farming & Homesteading

Kevin Hayden  – TruthisTreason.net

If you have a farm or a small business, would you like to pass it on to your children when you die? Well, unless Congress does something, it is going to become much, much harder to do that starting next year.

Right now, there is a 5 million dollar estate tax exemption and anything above that is taxed at 35 percent. But on January 1st, the exemption will go down to 1 million dollars and the tax rate will go up to 55 percent. A lot of liberals are very excited about this, because they believe that the government will be soaking wealthy people like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. But the truth is that a lot of farms, ranches and small businesses will be absolutely devastated by this change in the tax law.

There are many farmers and ranchers out there today that do not make much money but are sitting on tracts of land that are worth millions of dollars. According to the American Farm Bureau, approximately 97 percent of all farms and ranches in the United States would be subject to the estate tax if the exemption was reduced to just a million dollars.

Farewell Dear Doctor. You were the last remaining patriot. I salute you for your wisdom, courage, and honesty. You alone were the shining light during this dark time. You are no longer alone in your fight for freedom, liberty, and truth.

Farewell to Congress

This may well be the last time I speak on the House Floor. At the end of the year I’ll leave Congress after 23 years in office over a 36 year period. My goals in 1976 were the same as they are today: promote peace and prosperity by a strict adherence to the principles of individual liberty.

It was my opinion, that the course the U.S. embarked on in the latter part of the 20th Century would bring us a major financial crisis and engulf us in a foreign policy that would overextend us and undermine our national security.

To achieve the goals I sought, government would have had to shrink in size and scope, reduce spending, change the monetary system, and reject the unsustainable costs of policing the world and expanding the American Empire....

Rolling Jubilee: Project to Buy Debt for Pennies on the Dollar and Then Erase It

We buy debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, we abolish it. We cannot buy specific individuals’ debt—instead, we help liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal.

Hayden’s Note:

I take no position on the Occupy Wall Street movement. That being said, I found this project to be interesting and certainly worthy of sharing.  Groups like this can really change the paradigm and are offering solid solutions that I can jive with. 

We’re beginning this effort with The People’s Bailout, a variety show and telethon in NYC on November 15. All proceeds will go directly to buying people’s debt and cancelling it.

A bailout of the people by the people.

FBI Foil Own Terror Plot, Again – This Time at Federal Reserve

Posted on Oct 17, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Federal Reserve & Bankers, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation are giving each other high-fives tonight after arresting a 21 year-old man in a federal sting designed to entrap “terrorists.”  In reality, they found a young man with little self-esteem, dreams of grandeur and martyrdom, and then led him to the New York Federal Reserve with a 1,000 lb. fake bomb.

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, was arrested in downtown Manhattan after he attempted to detonate what he believed to be a 1,000-pound bomb that the Feds gave him at the New York Federal Reserve Bank on Liberty Street in lower Manhattan’s financial district.

Agents set up a sting [and] say the suspect parked a van that he thought was filled with explosives at the Federal Reserve.

He then tried to set the bomb off with a cell phone call made from the Millennium Hotel, across from the World Trade Center. – ABC 

Once the attempt to detonate the bomb was made, the FBI swooped in and arrested the “terrorist” that they created.  We’ve seen this time and time again, and nothing has changed with the storyline since the last 14 Fed-created Terrorists were “foiled.”  I’m sure the agents involved in this amazing arrest are buying each other rounds at a local pub, recalling the miraculous job they did at keeping the Homeland safe from terrorism....

Heavily Armed Police Raid Organic Farm, Conduct Illegal Search: “He’s a Constitutionalist.”

Posted on Oct 10, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

On August 16th, 2012, in a sleepy Idaho farm town, heavily-armed members of the Gem County Sheriff’s Office conducted an illegal search of a residence after receiving a domestic violence complaint from a neighbor.

After pulling the occupants from the house at gunpoint, displaying rude and discourteous behavior, and then illegally searching the entire house, along with personal effects, deputies discover what they believed to be a marijuana “grow room.”  One intelligent deputy suddenly has an epiphany, as heard in the video below at 05:20, “We’ll need to get a warrant for this.”

Little late for that, eh?  Funny enough, the grow room turns out to be an aquaponics system for the couple’s organic tomatoes.

But let’s back this scenario up a bit.

Police are enroute to a domestic violence complaint, and 911 transcripts indicate one deputy warning another that the subject of the complaint is a “Constitutionalist.”  Apparently, some of that Federal Fusion Center training did sink in!  It’s okay to politically profile those who follow the words on our Founding document.  Better gear up for a SWAT-entry!...

Conspiracy theorists need theorize no more. In pages from a fiction novel brought to life, the strangest twists in popular folklore have been winding through our government corridors. In this case, I wouldn’t blame you for being tempted to run it by Snopes.

Fabled as a secret society, Freemasons see themselves as an esoteric fraternity; an ancient brotherhood of initiates who are voted into membership for the purpose of sharing enlightenment through the use of exclusive teachings.

So why then is an exclusive group collecting our children’s DNA, with support of police and the government across the USA and Canada?

You know them as MasoniChip, or perhaps you’ve been led to believe it was a state and provincial endeavor intended to protect your little ones. They set up fairs, forge partnerships with law enforcement and even strive to distribute their services through North American public school systems.

In Massachusetts, this Freemason program was promoted by CBS News from the steps of the official State House and included their police dog, coincidentally named Mason....

Clues Link US to New Computer Viruses; Draft of Cyber Security Executive Order “Leaked”

Posted on Sep 19, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Political Issues, Science & Technology, Social Networking

Researchers have found evidence suggesting that the United States may have developed three previously unknown computer viruses for use in espionage operations or cyber warfare.

For now, the two firms know very little about the newly identified viruses, except that one of them is currently deployed in the Middle East. They are not sure what the malicious software was designed to do.

Hayden’s Note:

Interesting timing for this piece of information to come to light.  Recently, a “leaked” draft of a cybersecurity Executive Order was plastered across the internet, indicating an attempt to intimidate and use heavy handed mob tactics to coerce certain members of Congress into approving the CISPA-like bills that resulted in tremendous public outcry and concern.  Here’s a bit more info –

Source: TechDirt

Earlier this week, we wrote about how the White House was working on an executive order to act as a “stand in” for cybersecurity legislation that has so far failed to pass Congress (CISPA passed in the House, but a different effort, the Cybersecurity Act, failed in the Senate, and it would have been difficult to get the two houses aligned anyway)....

While You Were Sleeping: House Approves Sweeping, Warrantless Electronic Spy Powers

Posted on Sep 14, 2012 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

The House on Wednesday reauthorized for five years, broad electronic eavesdropping powers that legalized and expanded the George W. Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping program.

The FISA Amendments Act, (.pdf) which is expiring at year’s end, allows the government to electronically eavesdrop on Americans’ phone calls and e-mails without a probable-cause warrant so long as one of the parties to the communication is believed outside the United States. The communications may be intercepted “to acquire foreign intelligence information.”

The government has also interpreted the law to mean that as long as the real target is al-Qaeda, the government can wiretap purely domestic e-mails and phone calls without getting a warrant from a judge. That’s according to David Kris, a former top anti-terrorism attorney at the Justice Department.

The measure is sponsored by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and the Obama administration has called its passage a top intelligence priority. (.pdf) The bill generally requires the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Court to rubber-stamp terror-related electronic surveillance requests that ensnare Americans’ communications.

The government does not have to identify the target or facility to be monitored....
