Basket Of Liars & the Division of a Country

USA – -( This may seem to be a dark, angry diatribe, but it is not a call to arms. It is, instead, a call to wait and grow stronger. And, at the same time, it is a call to refuse to compromise with the liars.

Years ago, when most of you were just young pups, gunnies were already being demonized by folks who were afraid of our guns. They called us names because we called out their lies. But they never stopped lying about us and our firearms.

Right now our country is enduring an earthquake of lies. These lies, of commission and omission, are so great and damaging to the culture of freedom that we hold so dear, that there is little solid ground upon which to stand.

After this past midterm election, we remain genuinely amazed that so many fellow Americans could believe the lies, some of which are preposterous on their face. There are limitations to the human psyche, but it appears that upwards of half our population has gone bonkers, and our Republic is being torn apart by the Left Wing Party and the dangerously corrupt Main Street Media (MSM).

The majority of their lies are so obvious that it’s painful to see our fellow countrymen fall for them. And it’s difficult to accept that these countrymen are our family and friends. We don’t recognize them anymore. The unfortunate fact that remains, is that these critters are gullible, and ever eager to follow the smooth talking liars.

There are many people, many of whom we know, who firmly believe that President Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. There are many who think that Justice Kavanaugh is a serial gang rapist. Were they indoctrinated by an evil MSM who colluded with the left? Are our News Media willfully engaged in destroying our nation?

The MSM responds angrily when President Trump calls them out as the enemies of the republic. But, they are intentionally working to take down a duly elected American sitting President, and that does undoubtedly make them enemy number one.

Still, events have not fully unfolded and, we cannot know the future. We must wait patiently. We know that we cannot be disarmed, but we must understand that once violence is unleashed, everything changes.

The years of compromise of laws must end. Congressman Swalwell opened his mouth and admitted the truth about the intent of the left. They propose to forcibly buy back semiautomatic weapons on the way to civilian disarmament.

Molon Labe Swalwell! Come and try to take them, but get to a psychiatrist before you nuke us, and our land.

Will there be a compromise with people like Swalwell? You can bet your sweet bippy there will. After the Trump era, our timid politicians will be happy to keep their jobs by kowtowing to the politics and press of the day.

But we must know that we can never compromise with liars. We must know deep, deep in our bones, that 99% of gun laws are harmful, and usually quite useless.

We need to reflexively know that the Black Market will subvert the promise of a peaceful society, “if only we compromise.” We have been lied to get us to accept the laws that promise a peaceful outcome. These laws will put our names on lists, and the only significant result of them will be a thriving Black Market. The black market is here now, always ready to make a buck.

We must be aware of the many lies told about guns and gun owners. Many of these lies are not so obvious. Instead of an explosion of lies, gun owners have been subjected to a steady stream of smaller lies.

We can’t even begin to know them all. For example, Gary Mauser, a Canadian-American economist wrote an article entitled The Number of Violent Crimes Involving Guns Has Been Exaggerated By An Over-Inclusive Definition Of Gun Crime. If a crime is committed in or outside of the home of a firearm owner, it becomes automatically firearm-related in Canadian statistics. Any researcher who uses those statistics will likely not realize or care that he/she is producing fake conclusions.

Any lawmaker using such false information to propose yet another law will not know or care.

Our gun laws are based on dreams and the lies of the power-mad. According to them, we always need more, because the ones we have don’t work. Say it again, and say it LOUD! “The Black Market is always at the ready.”

We propose a war on GUN LAWS. We recommend a massive reduction of our tens of thousands of gun laws. Gun laws can only label the acquisition, possession, or use, of a weapon as legal or illegal. Laws cannot prevent a criminal, or an insane person, from acquiring, possessing, or using, a weapon.

With all the thousands of local, state, and federal, firearms laws in our country that attempt to keep us safe and under control, why do we still need more? Just asking for a friend! That’s because the LEFT is trying to control us. They seek that complete power.
Gun laws have been designed, from the get-go, to control and destroy our culture. We can legally comply, or we can become felons.

  • How many of us have carried illegally?
  • How many of us are sure we comply with all of our laws?
  • How many of us knowingly don’t or can’t comply?

The left resorts to lies, to manipulate outcomes, that are beneficial to themselves only. But these lies usually result in the destruction of our Rights and the Constitution, and more often then not, they transfer more power to the socialist mob.

The current, and coming, battle is between felonious cowardly liars and We The People. They want to control the US nukes, and luckily, the hard-working Conservative folks are now waking to this harsh reality.

We are to blame. Over the last 45+ years, we let the Left into our schools and media. We accept many of their lies. Too many of us believed that ‘sensible’ gun laws existed, and would help to reduce violence.

The lies were insidious, designed to advance their narrative that we and our guns are dangerous to our families and society. Its difficult for many average persons to know that something, that sounds so reasonable, is a deliberate lie designed to sow suspicion on the very foundation of freedom.

All of us need to be skeptical and always on guard. We must not be shy to be unreasonable and question an intent. We are in the right.
Back and support President Trump, but stay alert and be prepared.

Head the Call Up I know what you mean about suicides. I always thought if I ever tried it I would try to back out and only hurt myself real bad. I doubt if I am a candidate for that. I understand you (scar.)


@Head the Call Up You forgot to put (sarc.) after your post or you had a change of mind since yesterday. I’m sure it is the first, though. Some people may not understand and call you some bad names.

The Green Watch Dog

Head up The Call “And we all know that criminals aren’t really bad; we all know it’s the firearms that make them commit their crimes”. I have to disagree with you on this. Firearms I have owned have been kept perfectly fine, and secured away from others. Other people such as convicted felons, criminals in general are the ones to use handguns to commit a crime. Undisputed. To let you and others know, if a member of a household is suicidal, if that person is unable to get to a hand gun then they may very well not try to… Read more »

The left clearly understands that criminalization of a thing will not stop that thing from happening. Cries to legalize marijuana with references to the failure of 13 years of prohibition in this country as an example of why it only causes MORE crime. Why then do they expect there would be any less crime and/or violence by prohibiting firearms. During the 1920s and early 1930s, vast numbers of otherwise honest law abiding American citizens willfully participated in committing felony crimes and supporting organized crime syndicates that ran the black market in booze. FINE, go ahead and legalize all the drugs… Read more »


While I agree with your words, you did not complete them. The left isn’t the only ones doing this. Republicans support and are passing Red Flag laws in states all across this country. In MD the state MURDERED a man that was never accused of a crime and the media has ignored it. Ohio Gov Kasich is pushing hard to pass it there before he leaves office and incoming Mike Dewine A REPUBLICAN, said he will support it as long folks get DUE PROCESS. which, in their minds they do. AFTER THE FACT. Which means he will be pushing it… Read more »


Such energetic rhetoric about justifiable revolution against the coming tyrannical government. But how to start it? Needs leadership and the resources to galvanize, organize and then call to action. This must come from state leaders. Where are they? How do we get them to act? Will they remain loyal to the patriots cause? Will they stay the course? Questions that should keep all liberty loving patriots up at night.

@Cap, the Fat Boy Institute takes great pride in claiming that they have infiltrated every militia group. Note: the following is a hypothetical: Anyone that says, “Yep, formation is at my house. Bring your firearms. I”m starting the revolution right here.” is going to get arrested by the Feebees. For the FBI Carnavor program that scans internet transmissions: The preceding was a hypothetical.


@GWD please don’t project your personal issues on the rest of us, that seems to be the issue that is taking us down the road were already on. We have!! Gun laws that are unconstitutional and impractical that do not need to be supported, your support only makes them bolder to push farther. The question is simple, how long and how far do we allow them to go before they are in your living room asking you to wait outside while they search your house for weapons. It could be as simple as one of your neighbors thinks your an… Read more »


Since the invention of firearms every wanna-be tyrant or despot has attempted to deny or restrict them to those they wanted to subjugate or control. The Founding Fathers were perfectly aware of this, and wrote the Second Amendment as a guarantee that citizens could protect themselves against government tyranny: “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.” —Adolf Hitler “The measures adopted to restore public order are:… Read more »


“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” – George Washington — George Washington never said that. The first part of that sentence is from Washington’s First Annual Message to Congress; however, the rest of the “quote” is wholly bogus. “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence.” – George Washington — Wrong again; that’s another fake… Read more »

You can read history and see where the liberals are taking the people. The same path that was used many times is being used again. This is not new, look at Venezuela and see how gun control works there, the media never tell you how bad it is.

Ken Carter

It’s time we stop letting the ratchet of “Sensible Gun Safety Laws” keep clicking ever tighter.
An unarmed man is a subject.
An armed man is a citizen.


Your assessment is very accurate. Over the years we (gun owners) have allowed the Left to put us in this position. Due to their incessant screaming, crying and pleas for compromise on certain issues and we were either apathetic or trying to show we were reasonable people to give up certain things to their side. But that was before the advent of social media. Now, we know the media, politicians and other groups were exposed as blatant liars and charlatans. How can the Left plea for compromise when they never give anything in return? The Left only want to control… Read more »

If one would read the Second Amendment, that person would know that it preempts all gun laws. No gun laws are constitutional, thus those statutes are nothing at all.
A “Right” has the characteristics of permanence for all time, completeness of subject matter, and proscribes all governmental, judicial, bureaucratic, or presidential future diminishment. There is no balancing of governmental interests against a person’s Right. Some people don’t mind being slaves. Some people do mind being slaves.


The original drive behind the Second Amendment was to protect the People against the threat of a tyrannical government. As you all know, the Second Amendment protects the entire Constitution! Without the Second Amendment, We Americans would be nothing more than slaves and chattle to powerful Central Government. Without the Second Amendment, there will be no First Amendment and all of the other Amendments as well as the Constitution will be nothing more than a scrap of parchment on the trash heap of history very much like the Roman and Greek Empires. A goodly number of People understand that without… Read more »

As we need to stand firm on our ALL our constitutional rights, the importance is that we hold ourselves responsible for our actions. Enforce our current gun laws, hold ourselves responsible for proper securement of our weapons. At your home, while traveling. Proper use and knowledge of how to use your firearm. Inside the folds of a couch is NOT proper securement!

Roy D. Mercer

Fuck you too!
My couch is perfect securement in my house!!
Liberal Schmuck!!

Larry Brickey

Can you disagree without the personal insult?

Wild Bill

, Well said! The liberal and schmuck is a duplicitous, though.

Clark Kent

Wild Bill: Look in the mirror to find the REAL schmuck. The truth hurts…..

Now, Clark Can’t have a couple of tugs and go back to sleep.

Heed the Call-up

TGWD, people aren’t dying from firearms placed in sofas, they are dying from criminals killing them – method and/or tool used to kill is irrelevant, dead is dead. Personally, do you know anyone that stores their firearms in a sofa? I sure don’t. And does it really matter? I don’t have young children at home, so a firearm on the end table next to me is a danger to no one, but a criminal illegally entering while I am home. When not on me or next to me, it is in a safe. Unfortunately, safes get broken into, too. I… Read more »

Heed the Call-up

Tomcat, you are right, there is one person that responded that is that ignorant as to not understand it was sarcasm. Unfortunately, there is no help for him. He seems to believe that a firearm owner who becomes suicidal will not open his/her safe to obtain the firearm. Or if another person in the home becomes suicidal would not be able to break open the safe – we all know safes are impenetrable – or use some other method, 50% of suicides in the USA are by other means. Stupidly, he believes it is better for those wishing to commit… Read more »
