Custom Made Weaponry... What will Obama say? Will Eric Holder sue? Will Diane Feinstein have a fit?

With the Obama regime buying up most of the commercially produced ammunition (see Feds Buy Two Billion Rounds of Ammunition) making it difficult for the average citizen to not only protect themselves in emergency situations but for legitimate hunting and sporting events. Never before in the history of our nation has the federal government pursued actions that hamper the ability of ordinary citizens to fulfill their Constitutionally protected obligations to bear arms.  It is already known that many law abiding citizens have taken up the practice of loading or re-loading their own ammunition, so it stands to reason that making one's own weaponry would soon follow...especially with a hostile government breathing down or backs.  Apparently there's already someone jumping on the potentially profitable enterprise of manufacturing specialty weaponry, in my humble opinion, to counter the threat the Obama regime has on the citizenry.  Whether or not Sons of Guns of Baton Rouge, Louisiana has that in mind remains to be seen but as an outsider reading between the lines its certainly a potential objective. ~ Norman E.

Red Jacket Firearms – Sons of Guns
A new Discovery Channel program, Sons of Guns, is going to follow a Baton Rouge, Louisiana firm, Red Jacket Firearms, as it manufactures custom made weaponry for sale throughout the nation.
The company is owned and operated by Will Hayden. The show will feature him, his daughter Stephanie, who is the office manager, and his diverse crew as they create and amplify weaponry for private collectors, the military and different police forces. The first episode was about a customer who saw a shotgun with a silencer in a film and wanted RJF to create one for him.

The history of RJF is one of many successful small businesses. The business began as a retail firearms shop that also had a firing range. They decided to custom-make their own firearms, but didn’t have enough money to market their products. So they went to gun shows, where they found their marketing niche and developed a regional reputation, which eventually grew into a nationally known enterprise. To this day, Hayden continues to go to gun forums; now, he mainly provides advise on how to solve problems with firearms.
The first season, which took about a year and a half to film, includes 12 different episodes. Originally, the producers of the program intended it to follow in the model of American Choppers, which is dominated by the interactions between a father and his two sons. Usually, at least in the episodes I’ve seen of AC, the dad and at least one of the sons argue throughout the hour, but miraculously create a modified bike. However, the producers of Sons of Guns had to modify their intentions when Hayden and his crew got along. So this program will actually feature gun-making and the skills that are needed in order to do a quality job.
Sons of Guns – Scorpion Strikes
In last night′s episode of Sons of Guns, Scorpion Strikes, we have more fun and drama courtesy of the Discovery Channel. More office drama as Kris and Stephanie Ford become more disgruntled with their new CEO, Joe. Will finally visits the building Joe bought and is far from pleased. The two weekly ′builds′ are the refurbishing of a UK recon tank, an FV101 Scorpion, and a cute, little handgun from the late 19th Century known as a ′Velo Dog′. We even had another visit with Flem and Vince! Of course, there was also the obligatory staged explosions, too. Never gets old to some, does it?

The show begins with Will getting his first look at the building Joe purchased. The clock is ticking on Red Jacket Firearms′ lease and they must soon vacate the premises. So Joe bought a building out of his own pocket and is ready for Will to sign a lease agreement with him. Don′t count your chickens before they hatch, Joe. Will does not like the new building. Much work will be required and money to fund the project. Joe has already priced the air conditioning system to the tune of $60,000. Will refuses to commit immediately to leasing the premises. Kris Ford interrupts them with news that there′s a tank at Red Jacket!
A former client, Malcolm, whom RJF built a ′truck cannon′ for is back, this time with a surplus FV101 Scorpion recon tank. Malcolm wants Red Jacket to refurbish it so he can flip the tank for cash. Naturally, Joe is not happy as the company lost money with Malcolm′s other project, but Will and Kris are like two kids at a candy store. Even though this candy store has a round jammed in the barrel! Beyond that ′minor′ problem, the tank also has several major mechanical issues, like only being able to go in reverse.
Joe manages to get the tank into the shop′s garage. Will calls on Ira, an expert in artillery, as well as Flem, to help with the project. Meanwhile, Kris wraps up his work and is calling an early end to the day by taking the production line team out for drinks. Joe asks him to use the time clock to punch out. Kris refuses as he is on salary. Joe explains that workman comp laws requires that even the time for salary employees must be accounted for. Kris ignores him and walks out.
Flem arrives with a pry-bar to remove the shell casing from the Scorpion′s 76mm breech. Once this is done, Flem and Will carefully push the round out the back of the barrel. At first, they think the round is live, as it appears to have some sort of timer detonator. Will orders everyone out of the building as he unscrews it from the shell. Turns out that its a fake! Just something to look real.
A customer, Troy, arrives with a small handgun he wants repaired. Charlie recognizes it as a Velo Dog, a pistol that bicyclers used in the late 19th Century to shoot at dogs threatening to topple the rider from his ′Penny Farthing′. Ira arrives to help on the Scorpion. They first free up the rusty clutch linkages so the tank can now be driven forward as well as reverse. The next problem is with the gun′s recoil system. Flem tells Will that the gun is ′in battery′, but the recoil hydraulics are frozen.
Vince calls Joe about committing to their joint venture, but Joe refuses to do so. Joe wants to know everything , first. Joe then gets in Stephanie′s face over the Velo Dog gun. Joe says they′re losing money with the job. Stephanie defends the job since gunsmithing is what started the company. Joe says now is the time to grow the company.
Charlie tells Stephanie that the firing pin on the Velo Dog is very delicate and tricky. Also, ammunition is an issue, as the pistol uses 6mm rimfire cartridges. He thinks that the Winchester 22 rimfire will work, but its hard to come by, too. Stephanie finds one box of ammo through her contacts. Troy arrives and Charlie show him the work done. But the first test fire attempt fails and Charlie has to adjust the firing pin some more. Troy fires one shot and is happy. Less than happy is Kris, who vents his displeasure about Joe to Flem. Will overhears this as Stephanie tells her husband to not talk about it in the building.
Ira and Flem get the Scorpion′s recoil system working again. The next problem is the turret′s power drive. They can still turn the turret manually, but the electric drive is jacked up. Will talks with Kris about the changes at the company and advises him to roll with the punches and get a hobby. He doesn′t want Kris to dwell on work when at home. Will then takes the Scorpion out with Joe driving it. They think they have all of the mechanical issues solved.
The next morning, Malcolm joins the gang at the test range as Will and Ira pull up in the Scorpion. As they line up to shoot, the turret power gets jammed, forcing Will to go manual. But after that, they fire the gun three times, blowing up targets enhanced with explosives. Vince stops by to show Joe the paperwork on the arms deal he′s working on. He confronts Joe about feedback Vince has been getting from his contacts, whom are telling Vince that Joe is trying to buy the whole shipment for Red Jacket. Joe denies the rumors. So we′ll see if this deal goes through. So ends this week′s episode of Sons of Guns, Scorpion Strike.

Russian General almost torn apart by Ukrainian civilians

When the American people wake up they will be saying, "On your knees! On Your Knees!" just like the citizens of Ukraine...only they will be addressing Obama! ...see video below ↓

Should you go to federal prison, should you collect your federal pension?

The following from: In From The Cold
One More Thing
Of this much we're certain: avowed (and former KKK leader) F. Glenn Miller will be convicted on murder charges in connection with Sunday's shooting rampage in Overland Park, Kansas. And, unless he cops a plea deal, Miller will almost certainly receive the death penalty. So, assuming that God doesn't intervene, Miller will receive final justice in about 10-12 years, sometime around his 86th birthday.

We can only hope. Given his vile existence (and the barbarity of his crimes), Miller deserves a long stretch on death row before his date with the "hot shot," even if they have to wheel him to the death chamber. Miller deserves nothing less for opening fire at a rest home and community center, killing three people. A vicious anti-Semite, Miller thought he was targeting Jews at the two facilities. As it turned out, all of Miller's victims were Christians; a 69-year-old family care physician and his 14-year-old grandson (who were attending a singing competition), and a 53-year-old woman who had gone to visit her mother at the Village Shalom retirement center. All innocent victims of an evil man.

Clearly, capital punishment was tailor-made for someone like Miller. But there's one more sanction that officials should pursue: once convicted, strip Miller of his military pension.

Sad to report, but F. Glenn Miller retired from the U.S. Army as a Master Sergeant (E-8) back in 1979. Various reports indicate that Miller spent 20 years on active duty, most of them as a Green Beret. However, we've found no confirmation that Miller was ever a member of special forces and the Army has released no information on his military service. The Southern Poverty Law Center claims that Miller was forced to put in his retirement papers because of racist activities while in uniform.

But the SPLC has long claimed that the armed forces are infested with white supremacists, klan members and other hate-mongers (while ignoring the activities of Islamists and gang-bangers in the ranks). So, it's not surprising that the group was quick to highlight Miller's military ties.

On the other hand, it is disturbing to think that a convicted felon like Glenn Miller may be collecting a federal retirement check. Miller was found guilty on criminal contempt charges in North Carolina during the 1980s, but was granted bond while the conviction was appealed. Miller subsequently disappeared and was later re-arrested on weapons charges. He served three years in federal prison, receiving a reduced sentence for agreeing to testify against 14 other white supremacists. Miller later worked as a truck driver and his activities in recent years have largely consisted of penning and disseminating racist literature.

Ordinarily, that federal conviction 20 years ago should have been enough to strip Miller of his military pension. But the justice system is notoriously reluctant to take that step. Consider the case of former Congressman (and retired Navy officer) Randy "Duke" Cunningham. No one would describe him as a racist, but he did go to prison on corruption charges, convicted of taking millions of dollars in bribes and illegal gifts. Cunningham received both his Congressional and military pensions while behind bars. At one point in 2007, CNN reported that 20 former members of Congress (and senior government officials) were collecting federal pension checks while incarcerated.

In fact, it's almost impossible to strip a convicted military retiree or government bureaucrat of their pension, unless they're convicted of treason or other charges relating to national security. And even then, the lines sometimes blur. When FBI turncoat Robert Hanssen was sentenced to life in prison for espionage in 2002, his wife was allowed to keep the "survivor's portion" of his FBI pension. For lesser criminals, federal laws mandate even mandate the restoration of full disability benefits after their release.

So, it's a pretty good bet that F. Glenn Miller kept collecting his check during his previous stay in the big house, and he'll keep getting paid while he awaits trial for murder. His crimes are horrific; the fact that he will collect a military pension while in prison are an insult to Miller's victims and taxpayers.

The Social Security Administration, never known for being a model of efficiency, suspends benefits for anyone who is incarcerated more than 30 days. Their system is far from perfect, but the reasoning behind it is perfectly sound, and it should be extended to other federal payment programs. Once convicted, there is no reason that someone like F. Glenn Miller should continue to receive a monthly check from the U.S. government. Return it to the treasury, or give it to the families of his victims. The current system, which all-but-guarantees payment until he draws his last breath, is simply outrageous.

Gun precedes tyranny and mass killing of the people by their own government

Gun Control and the Hallmarks of Tyranny
 — A Reappraisal
by Dr. Miguel Faria

Georg Hegel (1770-1831), the father of dialectical idealism, which Karl Marx transmogrified as Marxist dialectical materialism, lamented that what we do learn from history is that man does not learn its lessons! Despite what we have learned about the deleterious effects of draconian gun control, as always preceding tyranny and even mass killing of the people by their own government (democide) in the last bloody century, President Barack Obama and the usual suspects in the Democratic Party have resumed the beating of the drums calling for the resumption of authoritarian gun control measures. These freedom-curtailing measures punish the vast majority of lawful gun owners because of the crimes and shooting rampages committed by mentally ill persons who fell through the cracks a of the mental health programs, or criminals and copycat killers who flouted our lenient criminal justice system and were enticed by the sirens of the popular culture of violence to achieve morbid celebrity status even in death!(1-2)
Hallmarks of Tyranny
As any student of history knows, loss of individual freedom and repression feature prominently in the development of totalitarian states. These features recur: First is the centralization and Gestapoempowerment of a national police force with a vast network of surveillance and informants to spy on the suspected population; second, the issuing of national identification cards for all citizens; third, civilian disarmament via gun registration, and licensing, followed by banning and confiscation of firearms.(3)
Thus gun control, along with loss of liberty and repression, necessarily and prominently features in the unfolding, authoritarian designs of a burgeoning police state. The empowerment of national police forces with vast surveillance capabilities and networks of informants* to spy on the population (not foreign enemies) is a necessity, and so we already have myriad agencies of enforcement from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). Here we should pause and be reminded of the misadventures of the ATF, virGun Controltually a standing army which initiated open war against American citizens, responsible to a significant degree for both the tragedies at Ruby Ridge, Idaho (1992), and Waco, Texas (1993). More recently, this agency, which has been empowered to control illegal firearms in the U.S., instead was found to be deeply steeped in crime and corruption, responsible for the infamous Fast and Furious Operation selling illegal assault weapons to Mexican drug lords.
Historically once these mechanisms of oppression are firmly in place, persecution and elimination of suspects and political opponents follows, and every social, political and economic policy the state desires can then be implemented. This has happened with the National Communist DictatorsSocialists in Nazi Germany, fascist states such as Italy under Mussolini, and communist powers such as the former Soviet Union (and its satellites behind the Iron Curtain) and Red China.(4-5) It is therefore astonishing and disturbing that Americans are now, once again, being assailed by President Obama with an avalanche of dangerous presidential decrees leading to the construction of the type of freedom-eroding scaffold which is anathema to the individual liberties our Founding Fathers bequeathed to us as responsible citizens capable of self-governance.
Construction of this scaffold reaching up to an authoritarian tower is the case with several bills that are being re-introduced in Congress requiring that all "qualifying firearms" in the hands of law-abiding citizens be registered. And the usual politicians are involved: Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Charles Schumer (D-NY), and Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ).
Gun Registration and Tyranny
These gun control proposals would eventually require that all persons be fingerprinted, licensed with passport-size photographs, and forced to reveal certain personal information as conditions for licensure. Registration lists would make it easy for municipal, state, or even the federal government to seize the registered firearms, once they are subsequently banned. The Obama and Bidenre-introduced Assault Weapons ban will include over 50% of all guns already lawfully possessed by Americans. Moreover, Obama has bypassed and gone over the authority of Congress by ordering the CDC to repudiate the congressional gun violence research ban issued in 1996. Such research was shown by numerous investigators to be politicized, result-oriented research that could only be characterized as junk science.(4)(6-7) Obama has now even taken the opportunity to encourage physicians to ask their patients about gun ownership and use them as snitches for the government!(8)
Legislation proposed by Senator Feinstein coming down the pipe mandates that gun owners register their firearms (9), in essence establishing, through the back door, a national gun registry, as was the case in Canada.
And the Canadian experience itself should be instructive. Lorne Gunter, writing in the Edmonton Journal as early as October 13, 2000, revealed that the Canadian Outreach program to register all gun owners was failing. The result and cost of Canada gun registrationthis Outreach campaign not only failed then to bring in the expected 1.4 million gun owners (to only one-third of that, 486,000), but it also exceeded the projected price tag many times over. By December 2002, the Canadian registry boondoggle was already costing nearly $1 billion. The cost has escalated well beyond the $1 billion mark and has proven to be a complete failure.(10)
Americans, and now Canadians, have pointed out not only its excessive cost and ineffectiveness but also the fact that rather than helping track criminals and their guns, as claimed, registration of firearms is dangerous to the liberties of citizens, and as we shall see, counterproductive against criminals.
Unbeknownst to many Americans, who having seen and experienced mostly the goodness of America, gun registration is the gateway to civilian disarmament, which often precedes genocide. In the monumental book Lethal Laws, published by Jews for the Preservation of Lethal Laws Dust JacketFirearm Ownership, we learn that authoritarian governments that conducted genocide and mass killings of their own populations, first disarmed their citizens. The recipe for accomplishing this goal went as follows: demonization of guns, registration, then banning and confiscation, and finally total civilian disarmament.(11)
Enslavement of the people then followed with limited resistance, as was the case in Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Red China, Cuba and other totalitarian regimes of the 20th century. Frequently, when presented with these deadly chronicles and the perilous historic sequence — namely, that gun registration is followed by banning, confiscation, civilian disarmament and, ultimately, by authoritarianism — naive Americans opine that it cannot happen here.
As to the dangers of licensing of gun owners and registration of firearms, they frequently retort, "If you don't have anything to hide, then you don't have anything to fear!" Followed by, "I see nothing wrong with gun registration because we have to do something; there are just too many guns out there that fall into the wrong hands." This is not only a naïve but also a dangerous attitude because ATF raid on American homegovernments have a penchant to accrue power at the expense of the liberties of individual citizens. Civilian disarmament is not only dangerous to one's personal liberty but also counterproductive in achieving collective safety.
The danger to a disarmed population has been further attested by two other great books. One is University of Hawaii professor R.J. Rummel's Death by Government (1994). The second book is The Black Book of Communism (1999) edited by Stéphane Courtois. These books make it clear authoritarianism and totalitarianism are dangerous to the health of humanity. During the 20th century, an excess of 100 million people were killed by their own governments bent on destroying liberty and building socialism and collectivism.(4-5)
Gun Registration and the Law
Another fact Americans need to understand is that registration is directed to law-abiding citizens, not criminals. Not only do convicted criminals by definition fail to obey the law, but they are also constitutionally protected against any registration requirement. In Haynes v. United States, the U.S. Supreme Court in 1968 ruled 7-1 that compelling registration by those who may not lawfully possess firearms amounts to a violation of the Fifth Amendment's proscription against forced self-incrimination. In other words, the court said that if someone "realistically can expect that registration [of a firearm] will substantially increasGun registratione the likelihood of his prosecution," the registration requirement is unconstitutional.
Astonishingly as it may sound, some courts have ruled that registration of firearms only applies to lawful citizens, not to felons. This has been pointed out by legal scholar Don B. Kates mentioning, for example, the Kastigar v. United States, 406 U.S. 441 (1972) decision. Does exemption of felons from gun registration sound irrational? It certainly does! Were gun registration to be implemented in the United States, criminals and felons could very well not be expected to register their weapons, since they are already felons proscribed from legally owning firearms. Requiring them to register their guns, some courts may opine, would necessarily incriminate them, and this would violate their Fifth Amendment rights.(12)
In Conclusion
As Edmund Burke that champion of British liberty once orated, “The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion.” Americans must therefore remain informed and vigilant to preserve their traditional and constitutional liberties and prevent enactment of gun control legislation rooted in passion and emotionalism and that impacts them and not the criminals. Government efforts should be directed against criminals and felons, and should best be directed towards crime control rather than gun control.
Governments that trust their citizens with guns are governments that sustain and affirm individual freedom because as Thomas Jefferson, affirmed, "The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and for government to gain ground." Indeed, governments that do not trust their citizens with firearms tend to be despotic and tyrannical. And as our history of Prohibition in the 1920s has shown, Americans obey just and moral laws but disobey or flout capricious and tyrannical laws.
Finally, let’s heed the admonition of the English philosopher, John Locke (1632-1704), who was greatly admired by the American Founding Fathers, who opined, "I have no reason to suppose, that he, who would take away my Liberty would not when he had me in his Power take away everything else."
* These informants are often unreliable ruffians and underworld elements willing to be snitches, so they can be at liberty to commit common, non-political crimes. In the Soviet police state and the gulag, these valuable criminal informants were referred to as "socially friendly elements" by the guards and police.

Martial law: Obama confiscates National Guard helicopters

Source for the following: The Examiner
Martial law: Obama confiscates National Guard helicopters from all 50 states
As if the Obama administration's purchase of more than 2 billion rounds of ammunition, and nearly 3,000 urban tanks, along with their unprecedented (and highly illegal) domestic spying program was not enough to convince you that the federal government is about to suspend the Constitution once and for all, the man who once vowed to run "the most transparent administration in history" has just rather inexplicably, ordered the U.S. Army to seize every Apache attack helicopter currently in use by the National Guard.
In all, the Defense Department will confiscate 192 Apaches from National Guard units around the country and give them to the active duty Army.
In exchange for the heavily armed and highly maneuverable choppers, Guard units will receive 111 UH-60 Blackhawk transport helicopters from the Army, Defense One reports.
Last week, U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee, claiming that the measure will save taxpayers $12 billion, over the next three years.
Of course, when one considers that this 'cost saving' move comes from an administration which regularly runs trillion-dollar deficits and, to date, has proposed no less than 442 tax increases since taking office in January 2009, the idea of saving money for the American taxpayer is a bit hard to swallow.
So, what could be another, more reasonable explanation?
The Apache, which began service in 1986, is armed with a 30 mm M230E1 Chain Gun (with 1,200 rounds), Hellfire anti-tank missiles, and 70 general-purpose 70 mm rockets. In short, it is capable of fending-off any enemy, foreign or domestic.
Obviously, these helicopters could pose a substantial obstacle to say, a tyrant drunk on his own power, with an army at his disposal.
With the recent, attempted seizure of the Bundy family ranch in Nevada by more than 200 armed federal officers, including many snipers, we know that the Obama administration is not afraid to use force against the American people.
Furthermore, considering the unprovoked attacks and murders of U.S. citizens on their own property by federal agents, such as the Ruby Ridge and Waco massacres, we also know that the federal government has no problem suspending due process and using lethal force on its own citizens. Couple that with the as yet, unexplained, massive arms buildup by the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Defense Authorization Act which allows the feds to arrest and detain any U.S. citizen indefinitely without charges, and even the most establishment-minded American should be able to see what is coming.
There are a few governors around the country who would not stand for martial-law being arbitrarily declared by this or any president, but without any teeth (i.e. Apache attack helicopters) what could they use to stop Obama's tyranny?

Elijah Cummings vs Catherine Engelbrecht

Elijah Cummings
Shortly after their deaths I commented, although not simultaneoulsy, that I was sorry that John Murtha and Ted Kennedy had died prematurely.  No I was not sorry that they were no longer with us...I was sorry that they escaped this world without serving time behind bars for the great harm they bestowed on America.  The old saying, "They got away with murder." would be a fitting statement; although more aptly for Kennedy.  Now if I were to start a list of such persons deserving of justifiable punishment before their natural deaths, Elijah Cummings, U.S. Representative for Maryland's 7th congressional district, would be somewhere in the top ten.  This poor excuse for a Congressman has no clue that he expresses racial and anti-American sentiment in recent congressional hearings...if he does have a clue then all racial overtones are indeed intentional.  One way or another this man (I could have easily inserted, "coward") needs to be trounced out of the political arena as soon as possible; America would be for the better without him.  Some of my reasons for incarcerated punishment are in the following commentary...and also read a bit more in depth editorial by Maggie's Notebook in the link that follows Kyle Becker. ~  Norman E. Hooben
ps: If you happen to read this Mr. Cummings, please don't die prematurely there must be a jail in your future.

True the Vote Witness Who Testified on IRS Scandal Pens Blazing Letter to Grandstanding Democrat
by Kyle Becker
Catherine Engelbrecht became the face of the IRS scandal with her riveting testimony before Congress on how her group True the Vote was targeted by the IRS for selective persecution and harassment.

You might remember Cummings as the grandstanding Democrat who railed against Darrell Issa’s investigation of the scandal after a Congressional hearing with IRS official Lois Lerner had closed (and then implied that Issa was racist):
Further making the situation ironic and unsightly for justice-avoiding Democrats is that emails show Lois Lerner improperly fed Elijah Cummings’ staff tax information on True the Vote via email correspondence.
Engelbrecht responded in a blistering letter entitled, “No More Lies, Mr. Cummings; Tell America the Truth“:

Washington is reeling as Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (D-MD) true role in the IRS abuse scandal has come to light. Emails released by the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee, of which Cummings is the ranking member, show Cummings and his staff communicating with Lois Lerner while the IRS targeted True the Vote for abuse.

“Today’s committee action reveals what we knew all along. Partisan politics and the weaponization of government against opponents of this administration is real and continues,” said True the Vote president Catherine Engelbrecht. “Elijah Cummings has blocked the IRS abuse investigation all along. We now see clearly that two branches of government have colluded to target and silence private citizens.

“America has come to a tipping point,” Engelbrecht said. “No more lies. No more cover-ups. No more collusion. Enough is enough. Finally, we have a chance for the rule of law to be re-established, thanks to the bold efforts of Chairman Issa and Rep. Jordan.”

Engelbrecht added, “We filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Cummings in February. Today we’re amending that filing to include this latest revelation. As I have said in my testimony before Congress; I will not retreat, I will not surrender, I will not be intimidated. I will not ask Rep. Cummings, Lois Lerner, Barack Obama, or anyone else, for permission to exercise my constitutional rights.”

Anyone with common sense could see the moment that Elijah Cummings put on a big acting performance at Lois Lerner’s testimony (where she plead the Fifth – again) that the Democrat was attempting to hide something from the public, while shifting attention onto Republicans by vilifying them. Now we know why.
