The Truth About Michael Bloomberg’s Militia Obsession

The Truth About Michael Bloomberg’s Militia Obsession

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- If you don’t control your mind, someone else will. Jim Morrison said that, and it’s as true today as it was when The Doors frontman first uttered those prophetic words. When it comes to the right to keep and bear arms, there is no one who wants to control minds more than former New York City mayor and multi-billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

Bloomberg, 80, funds a vast array of anti-gun propagandists who operate across multiple digital and print platforms. Some, such as Bloomberg News, are accepted by the mainstream media as a legitimate news source. Others, such as The Trace, masquerade as journalists but are nothing more than well-paid anti-gun activists with access to unlimited print and pixels.

Bloomberg turned to his loyal staffers at Bloomberg News to launch his latest assault on our gun rights by trying to change how we define a militia.

The former mayor wants the public to believe that the National Guard is the “well regulated militia” mentioned in the Second Amendment, which is “necessary to the security of a free state.” Therefore, if the public accepts that it’s the National Guardsmen whose right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, our individual gun rights can be eliminated, Bloomberg hopes.

This misinterpretation of the Second Amendment, while laughable, is nothing new. We are the true militia the framers had in mind – everyday Americans who possess modern firearms, ammunition and the skills to use them proficiently.

Here are some recent examples of Bloomberg’s attempts to redefine militia:

  • A Bloomberg News story published July 1 states that the New York Governor signed a law extending property tax relief to veterans who served at least 10 years “in the U.S. Armed Forces or in the organized militia of the State of New York.
  • A Bloomberg News story published June 29 examined a labor dispute involving active-duty Ohio National Guardsmen – those serving an Active Guard and Reserve, or AGR, tour. “The US Supreme Court accepted the Ohio National Guard’s request to consider whether the agency that oversees federal-sector labor relations also has jurisdiction over state militias,” the reporter wrote.
  • A Bloomberg News story published Aug. 17 profiled an Ohio National Guard unit comprised of high-tech computer specialists including several civilians. It was headlined: “Modern-Day Militia Ready for Fight Against US Election Hacking.”

Telegraphing an attack

These confusing headlines and word-salads were not accidental. They were carefully designed, and they betray the propagandists’ true intent: Change the public’s mindset because another attack on our gun rights is coming.

Fortunately, we have case law and several strong Supreme Court decisions that protect an individual’s right to keep and bear arms. Therefore, in my humble opinion, Bloomberg’s attack will not be a legal one – at least not yet.

This is propaganda, which is designed to alter public opinion and perception, and Bloomberg’s propagandists have always played the long game. They seek to change minds first, which will make it easier to change laws later.

Keep in mind what we’re dealing with: “I don’t know why people carry guns. Guns kill people,” Bloomberg once said, while surrounded by a heavily armed personal security detail, probably.

His attitude and his billions make him our most formidable anti-rights opponent. At least this time we know something is coming.

“Little Mike” Bloomberg is one of a not so small group that like to ignore the existence of laws he doesn’t agree with.

Nevertheless it wouldn’t hurt to show him this:

https://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?path=/[email protected]/subtitleA/part1/chapter12&edition=prelim

With particular emphasis on this part:

“the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.”

Thanks. That was the most interesting couple of paragraphs I’ve read in quite awhile. 5 star recommendation for all to read; it only takes a couple minutes.

But the actual meaning is that they are inferring is that the National Guard or the Naval Militia ARE part of the ORGANIZED militia which is total BS.

Yes, robbers, hackers, and other thieves often ignore the existence of laws that they do not agree with, also. So Bloomerberg is of the same ilk.

“But wait, there’s more!” — the late, great, TV pitch man, Billy Mays

“The 1916 law resolved the issues of deploying National Guardsmen overseas by stipulating that they would be discharged as members of the militia and then drafted into federal service, thus removing the National Guard from its status as the militia of the states when operating under federal authority.”

One Mr. Frank Zappa once opined in a song. “You will obey me while I lead you, with the garbage that I feed, don’t cry for help, no one will heed you!
Your mind has been totally controlled, it has been stuffed in to my mold, and you will do as you are told, until the right to you are sold!”
Frank was an very insightful person. As his father was a Military intelligence officer.

totbs

My understanding is that Frank Zappa Sr. was a research scientist, chemist, and mathematician who worked at the Aberdeen Proving grounds, then analyst, engineer and metallurgist for Lockheed and Convair, and then the Naval Research Center and School at Monterey, CA. Frank Sr. was never involved in MI.

Reminds me of the song by the late Carl Klang, Why The Banksters Keep us Dumb https://bornagainclassics.com/Klang/WhyTheBankstersKeepUsDumb.mp3 Too bad Carl didn’t get the notoriety he deserved. He was amazing. Especially this part of the song: Could the state of our condition be the product of omission What we didn’t learn in public schools? And did our Fathers all through history all fight and die for liberty So we could play the tyrants fools? And can you call it education when it’s all indoctrination To obey the hidden powers that be Did we fight the revolution, did we win the world… Read more »

I don’t care how much money mini Mike has he is a complete scumbag and will always be a scumbag . Those fancy suits don’t change what he is .

LOL!

Considering most of these types of problems stem from Mikey directly, it is time for him to go – whether he likes it or not.

how the heck would someone misconstrue Militia with National Guard. National Guard is a Government funded entity to where you have to sign on the dotted line while serving a allotted amount of time in a part time service of the U.S. Army if I am not mistaken. Militia is conjoined of civilians and usually retired military some active but far an few. I am a hillbilly from Kentucky and even I know that Militia is not made up of the U.S. National Guard. I would hope that other people are smart enough to at least research the Militia according… Read more »

It was my understanding that the National Guard as we know it today did not exist until just before WWI, a quick glance at Wikipedia confirms this.

My American Heritage dictionary definition is a bit different than the Merriam Webster online meaning.

This is the most important meaning in American Heritage: militia: 1.a. A citizen army, as distinct from a body of professional soldiers. b. the armed citizenry, as distinct from the regular army.

musicman44mag

You nailed it and the key word is (citizen). Citizen is not employed or paid for by the government. When I was in the Marine Corp, we referred to people outside the military as citizens. Common, ordinary, everyday people.

CourageousLion

Some of us are not so common ordinary people. We just figured it out and won’t have anything to do with attacking countries that have never done ANYTHING to us. And if we had the MILTITIAS in power and effect “our” country wouldn’t be involved in so many “conflicts” where so many people die and or are injured by the actions of the US military. It makes me want to puke.

CourageousLion

The National Guard was the outgrowth of the stinking “Dick Act” of 1903 vintage.

GomeznSA

CL – ‘amazingly’ enough the Republic mysteriously managed to survive without the ‘creation’ of the national guard bureau. Coincidentally (?) the feds had little to no control over state militias or any other facet of State operations until then.

Wild Bill

The reason that the definitions are different is that the American Heritage dictionary is a prescriptive dictionary, which lists correct usages; and as an authority is probably second only to the Oxford-American Dictionary.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary is a descriptive dictionary which merely lists common vernacular, but does not give correct usage guidance, and can not be considered authoritative. Please see “Disciplined Writing and Career Development” Foreign Service Institute, U.S. Department of State, p19

“Keep in mind what we’re dealing with: “I don’t know why people carry guns. Guns kill people,” Bloomberg once said, while surrounded by a heavily armed personal security detail, definitely.” There, I fixed it. Bloomberg has a compound in Bermuda, where he spends much of his time. Guns are illegal in bermuda, even police are unarmed. It is his “gun free utopia” that he relentlessly works to turn the USA into. However, it seems, Bloomberg does not feel safe in his gun-free utopia. Multi-Billionaires have a $$way$$ of working things out. Bloomberg’s heavily armed 17 man security team can remain… Read more »

Bloomberg is 80 years old! How much longer do we have to put up with him?
After all the average life expectancy of a male in the U.S. is 76 Years of age!

incorrigible

BUT, the evil men almost always live much longer than average! Satin takes care of his own.

Bloomturd is changing our laws and politics through the purchase of governors. He bought Kate Shit Stain Brown and We the People are paying for it with restrictive laws and rule changes she implemented during her term because she locked out the people from the house and senate while votes were being taken and restricted the amount of people that could say something during teleconferences and always having more left speak up than right while proclaiming that the reason for the unequal numbers was because less people supported the rights choice. BS.

Yes & Morrison had a few other amazingly coincidental Delphic quotes.

The word Government etymologically originated from the ancient Latin language.

It Splits into two words:1) (guvernare) meaning “to control” and 2) (mens or mentis) meaning “mind”.
SO GOVERNMENT MEANS “TO CONTROL THE MIND”.

This post at Lew Rockwell makes it pretty clear that not only are we supposed to have a CITIZEN militia, but that the National Guard, which is part of the STANDING ARMY, is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. The founding fathers had NO INTENT on having a standing army 24/7. Their intention was for one to exist for periods of no longer than two years and if a war that had been DECLARED BY CONGRESS lasted longer than two years they would extend the army for another two years until we either won or surrendered. The army was pulled from the CITIZEN MILITIA and… Read more »

Little Mikey can kiss our collective @$$. Militia is only a bad word if you’re a TYRANT. The SCOTUS-mandated standard is “text, history & tradition”. That effectively excludes anything that’s not pro-2A (such as Biden arming the Taliban instead of American patriots).

Remember that one of dummyburgs cop bodyguards was arrested for attempted murder while on the job.

The same people the anti-gun people say are the only ones outside the government that should have guns.

Our current court majority seem to understand the language used in the constitution, that being English. I’m not sure how long that will enure, though. I’ve lived through some pretty fecal supremes.
