Is Another Assault Weapon Ban Coming?

In 1994, Congress enacted a ban on assault weapons. President Clinton declared that such semi-automatic weapons were “built only for the purpose of killing people.” In the estimation of President Clinton and the United States Congress, Americans did not need such weapons to hunt and practice marksmanship. In 2004, the ban expired because its supporters could not show any impact on crime.Continue reading “Is Another Assault Weapon Ban Coming?”

Scaling the Walls of the Mighty

“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief with a law?” –Psalms 94:20

“A wise man scales the city of the mighty, and casts down the strength of the confidence thereof.” Proverbs 21:22

“They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.” Proverbs 28:4

Josiah was king of Judah when he was eight years old. 2 Kings 22. The kingdom was governed via guardians in a trustee capacity and Josiah was educated by men who had lost the Books of the Law so many generations back that they had no recollection of the Holy Decrees, Memorials and Feasts of the Lord- kind of like the men and women that hold the reins of power in many of our modern academic institutions and government-media complex- and churches!Continue reading “Scaling the Walls of the Mighty”

Terrorism Awareness in Federal Way

The concept of situational awareness is critical when preparing to confront an enemy or a potential disaster of any kind. The first step in developing such awareness is to know that an enemy exists and to identify from where the enemy threat may develop. These issues were the thrust of the November 29th, 2007, Terrorism Awareness Presentation. Ray Gross, Federal Way’s Emergency Preparedness Manager, presided over the presentation and facilitated some helpful discussion with a good cross-section of the Federal Way community.Continue reading “Terrorism Awareness in Federal Way”

The Originator of Inalienable Rights

The men that drafted the United States Constitution acknowledged that human government eventually degenerates into tyranny apart from three related sources of law.

Terrorist Trial in NYC Exposes Climate of Jihad in Seattle

On July 20, 2002, the Seattle PI informed readers that James Ujaama and his brother, Mustafa Ujaama, “…were prepared to challenge criminal charges- if any are ever brought against them- that suggest they associated with terrorists.”

“My brother and I are not terrorists, and we should not have been charged in the media and harassed,” Mr. Ujaama told the PI. He alleged that the FBI was unfairly destroying his reputation along with the legitimate business activities in which he was engaged.

All this, according to Mr. Ujaama was a result of his previous involvement with a Central District mosque, Dar-us-Salaam.Continue reading “Terrorist Trial in NYC Exposes Climate of Jihad in Seattle”

Rebuilding the Walls of the Republic

Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance. For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him. So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was intreated of us.

Ezr 8:21-23

Nehemiah and Ezra were tasked with rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem after it fell into disrepair. First Nehemiah interceded for his people. He confessed Israel’s sins and admitted their wickedness. Nehemiah honored Yahweh by preparing the Jews to defend themselves with armed force in the face of enemies that were conducting terror operations in the form of guerilla warfare to undermine the rebuilding of the temple:Continue reading “Rebuilding the Walls of the Republic”

Vigilance, Not Vigilantes

The fact that the King County Sheriff’s office and other Washington State law enforcement agencies are being forced to eliminate officers has raised the issue of whether we citizens may have to defend ourselves from violent predators. Is Sheriff Sue Rahr’s recent suggestion that citizens should protect themselves some new kind of vigilantism that may deprive others of Constitutional due process?Continue reading “Vigilance, Not Vigilantes”
