Men fight with their minds. The tools they use are irrelevant.

Guns they’ll never find
cuz’ my lethal weapon is my mind.

— Ice T.

Something that is never missing in the arguments of gun grabbers is the term “assault weapons.” According to them, assault weapons are one of the main causes of gun violence in the United States.

In the web site of Senator Diane Feinstein, a corrupt California politician and Council on Foreign Relations member in the vanguard of the anti-gun movement, we find out the following:

Stopping the Spread of Deadly Assault Weapons

On January 24, Senator Feinstein introduced the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013, a bill to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition feeding devices.

Nowhere in her site, however, can we find a definition of what she thinks are “assault weapons.” In the same fashion, in none of the anti “assault weapons” arguments can we find a definition of what the authors consider “assault weapons.” The very few times they have tried to define the term, what they have produced is nothing more than unintelligible, incoherent babbling.

For example, according to our enlightened politicians, as expressed in the Title XI – Firearms, Subtitle A – Assault Weapons in the Control and Prevent Crime Act of 1994 (H.R. 3355), (AKA Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB), or Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act.), ‘‘(v)(1) It shall be unlawful for a person to manufacture, transfer, or possess a semiautomatic assault weapon.”

According to Federal Assault Weapons Ban, and assault weapon is:
(A) A semiautomatic rifle that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at lease two of the following:
(i) A folding or telescoping stock;
(ii) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;
(iii) A bayonet mount;
(iv) A flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor; and
(v) A grenade launcher; or

(B) A semiautomatic pistol that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least two of the following:
(i) An ammunition magazine that attaches to the pistol outside of the pistol grip;
(ii) A threaded barrel capable of accepting a barrel extender, flash suppressor, forward handgrip or silencer;
(iii) A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel and that permits the shooter to hold the firearm with the non-trigger hand without being burned;
(iv) A manufactured weight of fifty ounces or more when the pistol is unloaded; and
(v) A semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm; or

(C) A semiautomatic shotgun that has at least two of the following:
(i) A folding or telescoping stock;
(ii) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;
(iii) A fixed magazine capacity in excess of five rounds; and
(iv) An ability to accept a detachable magazine;

It is evident that the gun grabbers cannot produce a coherent definition of the term “assault weapon.” So, the question remains: What is an “assault weapon”?

According to some, “assault weapon” is a pejorative term invented by an urban elite of idiots that wouldn’t know an AR-15 from an AK-47. But I don’t agree. Like “global warming,” “second hand smoke,” “CO2 emissions,” “homophobia,” “peak oil,” “Cold War,” “national security,” “missile gap,” “gun lobby,”[1] “hate speech,” “gun crime,” “fiscal cliff,” “sequestration,” and many other widely used psychologically-charged terms,[2] the term “assault weapon” is not a creation of ignorant idiots, but most likely was created by very clever people at the Tavistock Institute, the Stanford Research Institute, or any other of the globalist conspirators’ psychological warfare think tanks.

All of them are irrational, contradictory concepts designed to be repeated over and over ad nauseam in order to brainwash the people’s minds and condition them into accepting even more limitations of their personal freedoms in the way to implement the communo-fascist totalitarian nightmare the CFR conspirators call the “New World Order.”

The fact that the scary term “assault weapon” was conceived by a psychological warfare think tank to blur in the minds of the public the distinction between a semi-automatic and a fully automatic rifle is not a figment of my imagination. As early as 1988, Josh Sugarmann, Executive Director of the Violence Policy Center, an anti-gun lobby with ties to the globalist conspirators,[3] let the cat out of the bag, when in a primer for gun-control activists, admitted that the

“… issue of handgun restriction remains a non-issue with the vast majority of legislators, the press, and public. … Assault weapons … are a new topic. The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons — anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun — can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions of these weapons.”[4]

After they created the term, the anti-gun conspirators, with full support of the CFR-controlled media, began a frantic campaign to ban the so-called “assault weapons.”

The fact that the term was an artificial creation for brainwashing purposes was confirmed by researchers Bruce H. Kobayashi and Joseph E. Olson. Writing in the Stanford Law and Policy Review, they found that “Prior to 1989, the term ‘assault weapon’ did not exist in the lexicon of firearms. It is a political term developed by anti-gun publicists to expand the category of assault rifles.”

The bottom line is that there is no such thing as an assault weapon because assaulting is a military tactic not related to any particular type of weapon. Ultimately, an assault weapon is anything you can use as a weapon to assault. During WWI the assault weapon of choice was the bayonet. During the war against Spain in 1868-1878, the assault weapon of choice of the Cuban patriots was the machete.

Of course, the CFR conspirators and their minions know perfectly well that there are no such things as “assault weapons.” They use the term as a way to convince gullible Americans to peacefully surrender their guns. Why? Because History has shown over and over that it is much easier to enslave an unarmed population than an armed one.

The Founding Fathers were aware of the fact that only an armed populace can deter tyranny. Writing in The Federalist No. 46, James Madison stated it clearly:

[The Constitution preserves] the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation… [where] the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.

And have no doubts about it. Taking the arms from the people is exactly what the CFR conspirators have in mind. Speaking to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1950, CFR agent James P. Warburg put it bluntly when he threatened our spineless politicians: “We shall have a world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.”

But Americans created a peculiar type of country: a republic, not to be controlled by an oligarchy or by a democratic mob. To avoid a faction getting full control of the government, they also created the separation of the three powers, with an independent press acting as a sort of fourth power.

Traditionally, there were two ways to illegally grab control of a country: by force through a mass revolt, the communist way, or through a coup d’état, the fascist way.

But the CFR conspirators have used a not-well-known third way: by infiltration. That’s the Fabian way. No wonder the symbol of the Fabian Society is the wolf under a sheep’s skin.

And we have to admit that the Fabian system worked. The first step the CFR conspirators took on their way to implement totalitarianism in America was to infiltrate and take control of the mainstream press. In 1917, Congressman Oscar Callaway explained to his colleagues how,

“On March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interests, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press of the United States. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest newspapers. The 25 papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent to purchase the policy, national and international, of these papers; an agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interest of the purchasers. This policy also included the suppression of everything in opposition to the wishes of the interests served.”[5]

The second step was to infiltrate, first, the Republican Party and, second, the Democratic Party. Once they got control of the two parties, they were ready for the next step.

Following the same approach, in the 1930s the CFR conspirators took a third step when they infiltrated and took control of the State Department. In order to accomplish this, the conspirators offered their “help” by suggesting the creation of a group of “experts” in foreign policy to advise State Department officials. This was the true origin of the War and Peace Studies project, a clever scheme written by University of Chicago professor and CFR asset Jacob Vinter. The project was financed with funds provided by the Rockefeller Foundation.

In 1948, they took an important fourth step when created the National Security Council and the nefarious Central Intelligence Agency. The true purpose of the NSC was to set a ring of disinformation around American presidents they didn’t fully control, turning them into virtual puppets. Less than a year after its creation, they turned the CIA into a tool for carrying out illegal covert operations — the true and only purpose for which they had created the Agency.

Finally, they concentrated most of their abilities on infiltrating the U.S. military. To that end, in 1962 they started an operation innocuously called the Military Fellows Program. The program recruited military officers as interns who spend one year at the Harold Pratt House. The patriotically and ethically challenged interns who demonstrated their willingness to advance their careers by betraying their Oath of Office and become CFR agents, were recruited and their careers rapidly advanced.

The CFR’s Military Fellows Program has been a sure way to indoctrinate potential agents that already have been discovered by CFR talent spotters. Once their qualities for the treasonous job have been firmly established, the candidates are recruited as CFR secret agents —the best agent is the one who doesn’t know, or doesn’t want to know, that he has been recruited— and put to work on behalf of the CFR’s secret goals. As part of the plan, they are pushed up above the ranks until they reach key positions in the U.S. military apparatus. Currently, most of these secret CFR agents infiltrated into the military are occupying positions of power in the U.S. armed forces.

The process is not new, and the conspirators have been using it successfully for many decades. Dwight Eisenhower, George Marshall and Matthew Ridgway were the product of these pushed promotions. More recent examples are Colin Powell, Alexander Haig, and James Petraeus. The results of this CFR effort of systematic infiltration of the U.S. military has brought results far beyond their expectations: as of 2006, there were 124 senior officers of the three branches of the U.S. armed forces with confirmed membership in the CFR. Today, most likely the number is higher.

Nevertheless, despite all their advances into forcing Americans into totalitarianism, the CFR conspirators have found several major obstacles they have not been able to bypass. In the first place, Americans believe that freedom and liberty are their birthrights. Secondly, and even more important, they are fully convinced that the only thing that ultimately guarantees such natural rights is the possession of firearms. It seems, therefore, that it will not be easy for the conspirators to enslave the American people by consent, so they are planning to do it by force.

Contrary to what Obama and other CFR minions believe, the Second Amendment to the Constitution does not give Americans the right to own firearms, it only recognizes it as a birthright. Therefore, even if the CFR conspirators pass laws eliminating the Second Amendment, or all of the Bill of Rights, or even the Constitution, Americans still have the natural right to own firearms to protect themselves from a tyrannical government.

To make things worse for the conspirators, the Internet explosion, which broke their total control of the news and leveled the informational field, added another stumbling block in their way to implement totalitarianism in America. The examples of China, North Korea, and Cuba show that totalitarianism and free access to the Internet are incompatible.

For more than a century, the globalist conspirators have orchestrated false flag operations to convince the American people that the course they have secretly traced is the right one. Beginning with the blowing up of the USS Maine battleship in the Havana Bay in 1898, which they used as a pretext to initiate their imperialist expansionism, to the 9/11 events, which they used as a pretext to justify their current imperialist push, this technique has proved to be a great success. But the existence of the Internet has allowed the people to know of divergent interpretations. It took more than half a century for the people to discover that the Pearl Harbor attack had been orchestrated by the conspirators to justify pushing the country into an unwanted war.

It took less that six months for many people to realize that the purpose of the 9/11 events was to push Americans into a new unwanted, unwinnable war.

In an effort to convince the American people of the dangers of guns, the CFR conspirators created Fast and Furious, a false flag operation whose objective was for the government to surreptitiously sell weapons to Mexican drug gangs and later blame gun shows for the killings committed with these weapons. During a visit to Mexico, Obama proclaimed: “This war is being waged with guns purchased not here but in the United States. More than ninety percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States…”[6]

But Fast and Furious failed miserably, so they conceived other plans.

Strong evidence has surfaced pointing to the fact that the story advanced by the government about the shootings in a cinema in Aurora, Colorado, and in a school in Newtown, Connecticut, differ from the facts. But in the case of the Newtown shooting, which the conspirators believed was going to be a catalyzing event to convince the American people about the need for gun registration and confiscation, the false flag operation failed, and the failure was even more catastrophic than Fast and Furious.

Instead of running to police stations to surrender their firearms, the very day after the Newtown shooting, thousands of Americans of all political persuasions voted with their feet by rushing to gun stores and virtually depleting them of firearms and ammo.

Actually, this was a vote of no confidence in their government. Evidently, despite all of their think tanks and experts, the conspirators miscalculated the reaction of the American people. And what a strong reaction it has been. Far from convincing Americans of surrendering their firearms, they have convinced them not to do so.

According to an anti-gun guru, the long lines of people trying to buy guns were due to fear that someone is going to come take them. And then he reasons, “If you fear your guns will be taken, why buy more? Won’t they be taken too?” Apparently it never crossed his narrow mind that people are buying guns because finally have realized that they may have to use them to protect their guns, their property, their families and themselves from the far reaching, sticky hands of the government.

The bottom line is that despite all their control over the American government, the military, the press and the most important institutions, the CFR conspirators cannot impose their communo-fascist New World Order upon the American people without having depriving them of the internet and their firearms first.

In the case of the Internet, it would be relatively easy for them to create a false flag operation in the form of a cyber attack that would cost the lives of several thousand American children and their pets. This would be used as a pretext to cancel the current Internet and create a new “secure,” limited access one.[7]

In the case of gun confiscation it would be a little more difficult. After passing laws fully illegalizing the possession of firearms, the next step would be going house by house searching for guns to confiscate. But some sheriffs already have declared they would not comply with such a law, and many members of the military would not be willing to do so.

In Aesop’s fable “The Mice and the Cat,” the assembly of mice approved the idea of hanging a bell on the cat. All we need to do, they concluded, is to hang a bell around the cat’s neck. Wherever he goes, the bell will ring, so we can hear when the cat is coming before it is even close! All the mice jumped and clapped at the idea. Suddenly, a wise old mouse said, “That’s a very brilliant idea. Now, who will hang the bell around the cat’s neck?”

Moral: It is one thing to say that something should be done, but quite another to do it.

On the other hand, it is difficult to believe that drug lords send their minions to a gun show in the U.S. to pay $700.00 for a semi-auto AK-47, when they can get from Castro or Chavez a full auto AK for less than fifty bucks.
