The reasons why leftists and globalists will never successfully disarm Americans

The relative stasis of the gun policy debate is a source of confusion for a lot of voters who wonder how nearly 40,000 people can die from gun violence (the majority by suicide and gangs) in a given year or why Dems seem to know little about the guns they want banned; spreading the usual disinformation.

Gun confiscation has always been the Holy Grail of totalitarian regimes.  And though it is true that not every regime seeks to disarm every single citizen, they always disarm the people they specifically intend to hurt the most.

For example, gun control advocates today like to point out that the Third Reich in Germany did not disarm the entire German population. This is a rather bizarre position for leftists as they continually wail and scream about Nazis around every corner and behind every tree, but they will still defend their gun-grabbing policies by arguing that the Nazis were not as bad as conservatives assume. Of course, what they never mention is that the Nazis DID disarm millions of people; most of them Jewish under 1938 German gun laws.

The National Socialists disarmed the people they planned to destroy. It's not hard to figure out why; they didn't want their target to be able to fight back. They allowed their political supporter to keep their weapons legally; this is not a relaxation of gun laws, in fact, it's the reverse — it is selective enforcement of gun confiscation based on ideological loyalty.

Hilariously, leftists in the U.S. when confronted with this fact double down on their gun control arguments instead of admitting their foolish error. They will say: "Yes, the Nazis disarmed the Jews and others, but having guns would have made no difference in saving their lives..." And there you have it — the most backward circular logic of all time. If Jews and others owning guns was not a deterrent to their slaughter, then why would the Nazis bother disarming them in the first place?  Leftists have no answer to this question.

Not to mention they are trying to argue against facts using a hypothetical; how would they know? Maybe owning guns might have saved the lives of millions of people the Nazis had deemed enemies of the state?  Maybe it would have acted as a deterrent to the Holocaust? Maybe the Nazis would have been afraid to expand tyranny into Europe if they had to worry about their own population fighting back?  Maybe, WWII would have never happened?  We could argue hypotheticals all day long...

What we do know for certain is that disarmament is always one of the first steps by totalitarians in cementing their control of a population, and this most common among the biggest political killers in modern history — no, it's not the Nazis; it's the communists.

While a debate rages over the exact number of deaths attributed to communist governments, it is estimated that they are responsible for approximately 65 million to 100 million murders over the course of the last century, a genocide beyond anything history has ever seen before. These deaths were caused by direct means, such as shooting dissidents, or indirect means, such as imprisoning dissidents until they died from complications or stealing food supplies from rural farming communities and allowing them to starve en masse.

Stalin, in particular, declared any theft of state property a crime punishable by death. He then also declared that all production including food production was state property. So, if you eat food that was not granted to you by the state, you are stealing and could therefore be shot. See how that works?

None of this would have been possible without gun control and confiscation laws put in place before the larger genocide was enacted. In 1918 the Bolsheviks and the Council of the People's Commissar mandated that Russian citizens turn in their firearms under penalty of prosecution. Gun restrictions and penalties were increased over the years until WWII, when the Soviets were loath to arm their own population in response to Nazi invasion. In fact, the ease by which the Nazi army rolled through the Eastern front was partly due to the disarmament of the Russian population.

Communist governments only allow people to have firearms in their hands when they are fighting against the ideological and foreign foes of the regime. You are allowed to be cannon fodder for the elites, you are not allowed the means to defend yourself from those same elites.

Americans (primarily conservative Americans) have an in-depth understanding of this dynamic. While leftists are more concerned with rewriting history to their benefit, we are more concerned with learning from it. We know where gun control leads, and so did the Founding Fathers of our nation, which is why they codified gun ownership into the U.S. Constitution as an inalienable right under the 2nd Amendment. Here are the reasons why elitists, globalists and communists will never be able to disarm the American population as they have done in previous nations...

We know the history of gun control

As noted above, we have studied the history of tyrants. There is no tyranny that has ever existed that did not try to disarm the population or disarm the portion of the population the government intended to enslave or destroy. Leftists froth at the mouth trying to re-imagine history in a way that circumvents or ignores the tyranny issue when it comes to gun control. They are wasting their time.

They are never going to convince conservatives and moderates that gun confiscation was not a key step in the establishment of various tyrannies in modern history. All the mental gymnastics and manipulation, all the energy they spend trying to rationalize away genocide as somehow "inevitable" regardless of gun rights — it's all for nothing. We are far smarter than they are. We are well versed in the legacy of gun control, and this makes their tactics useless.

We know all the tricks

The level of dishonesty involved in gun control advocacy is astonishing. Leftists use lies as a means to gain political capital; if they were completely honest about their intentions they would not receive much support from the general population for their efforts. Gun grabbers are very careful in most cases to use phrases like "common sense" when talking about new restrictions. They try to refrain from admitting what they really want is complete disarmament, at least, until recently.

Incrementalism was the name of the game, but the past year they are going for broke. Some leftist politicians are openly admitting their true goals because frankly the song and dance weren't working, and they know conservatives aren't going to allow any further encroachment on their rights. Kamala Harris, now vice president of the U.S., was one of the Democrats openly seeking mandatory government buybacks of firearms.

Joe Biden is famous for his statements admonishing military-grade weapons in civilian hands and telling people that a "double-barreled shotgun" is "superior" to the AR-15 for home defense. Obviously, a two-shot weapon with a limited effective range of around 50 yards or less makes it very difficult to fight back against government tyranny. And we all know that eventually even the shotguns would be taken away.

There is a reason why leftists and globalists are so obsessed with taking away combat-ready firearms from Americans, and it's not about "saving lives."  These weapons act as a deterrent to full-blown tyranny. As long as they exist, our ability to take back our other rights and freedoms exist.

BLM race riots

Despite the false claims of the mainstream media, we have seen firsthand the destruction and insanity perpetrated by Marxist groups like Black Lives Matter. They are anything but "peaceful." They are dangerous in their lack of intelligence and logic, and their social justice ideology is cancer that infects and debilitates every vital organ of Western civilization.

In his movie Platoon, Oliver Stone's character Chris Taylor says: "Hell is the impossibility of reason." If this doesn't describe the social justice movement today then I don't know what does. If a group of people is determined to make every single tragedy about racism and "white supremacy" despite all facts to the contrary, and then use those tragedies as an excuse for mass violence, then they are zealots, and zealots are dangerous. They are cultists with a mission, and they will do anything to accomplish that mission.

In this case, the mission of Marxists within BLM is to destroy the very fabric of America, burn it to the ground, and then rebuild it into an unrecognizable husk devoid of principles or freedom. Yeah, I don't think conservative gun owners are going to go along with that. Burning down their own neighborhoods is one thing, but I have little doubt they will ultimately try to spread beyond the borders of their own garbage cities. And, when they do, we will be there to put an end to it.

The control agenda is out in the open

If anything has convinced gun owners of the need for firearms, it has been the past year of pandemic fear-mongering. What have we learned so far?  Well, we are now fully aware of the "Great Reset" agenda, which has been promoted nonstop by the World Economic Forum and various political leaders. This agenda calls for years of economic lockdowns and medical mandates, forced vaccination, medical passports without which a person might be completely removed from the economy, a new cashless society, a shared economy in which you will "own nothing and like it."

The medical or vaccine "passports" are particularly disconcerting. For one, governments don't necessarily have to enforce them right away. Rather, they can simply allow their corporate partners to demand said passports from anyone that wants to get a job or buy a shop in their stores. Once this system is ingrained into the consumer world, governments can then step in and make them a legal requirement. Eventually, the passports give the establishment the ability to control and micro-manage every aspect of every individual life. Without compliance to every whim, the technocrats can simply void your passport, and then you die from poverty and starvation.

This would be impossible to do in a country where a majority of the population is armed. I think it's safe to say most Americans do not want to live in the dystopian world that the globalists at the WEF envision, and we will fight to ensure it does not happen.

Tyranny is enforced by armed men on the ground 

My favorite mantra of gun grabbers is the claim that "Your AR-15 isn't going to help you against an Abrams tank or a predator drone."  These people don't understand how totalitarian systems function. In order to control a population, you have to have loyal troops on the ground... everywhere. Not only that, but you also need loyal civilians, a large percentage of the population, to act as your eyes and ears and sometimes brute force. And finally, you need anyone who might oppose you to be afraid to take action to defend themselves. You need them docile and passive.

There are a lot of moving parts to tyranny, and tanks and planes are secondary to basic manpower. And where there are troops and others enforcing tyranny, there are numerous targets. Where there are firearms, there is a means to eliminate a tyrant at the top of the pyramid with a single well-placed bullet. Furthermore, you don't need armored vehicles and stealth jets to fight tyranny; what you need is a good firearm to remove the people driving and flying those machines. You might even take those weapons for your own arsenal.

A lot of gun owners are also military veterans, and they have seen how things played out in places like Afghanistan, where all the military might in the world was ineffective against tribesman with old AK-47s and roadside IEDs. It's about the force of will, and a minimal ability to attack when necessary. Guerrilla wars are not fought in terms of battles, they are fought in terms of attrition. Americans understand this better than most.

For all these reasons and more, the gun grabber ethos is essentially pointless. They can have total dominance in the federal government, they could have every state government on their side and pass hundreds of laws and executive orders making every gun owner a criminal, and it still would not matter. We will not budge; we would rather fight.

Elitists and leftists just don't seem to get it. Maybe it's the way their brains work. Maybe they just can't comprehend the idea that some people will not compromise certain freedoms no matter the cost. They think everyone has a limit; that everyone has a price. They think anyone can be bought, or that anyone can be leveraged into submission. The truth is some of can't. Some of us have no price, and we cannot be compelled to comply.

We are the people that keep freedom alive, and totalitarians are terrified of us; gun-grabbing is merely a natural extension of their fear and doubt. Wherever a government is seeking to disarm the population, this is a sure sign they are afraid that the population might take away their power.

To truth and knowledge,

If the grid goes down and you're trying to stick out the disaster at home, one of the most immediate problems you'll have to deal with is what to do with human waste.

 If the water stops running, you won't be able to flush your toilets, and you don't want to just keep using them without flushing. Not only is that unsanitary, but your entire house will also smell bad, and eventually your toilet will overflow.

 If you have a source of water nearby such as a stream or lake, you could haul buckets of water back to your house and use it to flush your toilets. But if you don't have such a source, you'll want to save every drop of water you have for drinking, which means you'll need an alternative to your toilet.

 That's where the urban survival toilet comes in...

How to survive coming bank collapse

You've seen the beginning already, even if you don't know you have.

As banks run out of money to lend, or will not lend what they are "given" by the Fed, businesses are unable to restock and consumers can no longer buy products. With no products moving, companies are forced to lay off employees, shrinking the pool of consumers even further. The spiral grows tighter and faster.

So governments begin to infuse money into the system, creating debt. As governments go further into debt it restricts more and more of the individual's freedoms and takes more and more from his or her pockets.

What if no businesses are allowed to operate? Well, the result is the same, as we have seen. Federal debt is a world-class delusion. A better description of U.S. so-called federal or national debt is Ponzi. The pretended debt and the pretended interest on the debt are only extensions of the paper regime. The service on the debt is now around $500 billion a year. Yes, our federal "budget" now begins at half a trillion a year, minimum.

If we could bring back the alchemists of old who dreamed of the magic of turning quicksilver into gold they would be ecstatic. Yet the American system is far advanced from alchemy. It turns non-substance into substance by exchanging fiat (pretended money) into nationalizing (stealing) the wealth of the U.S. and the world under the pretense of "stimulus."

Yes, dear reader, you are correct if you sussed out that the term used to be "bailout," but that was far too accurate, and the propagandists can't have that, so they turned it into the seemingly positive and beneficial word "stimulus," but it is the same farce.

Never in history have so many been so deceived about the monetary illusion in modern-day America. It's all so simple, folks. Stimulus is debt, and debt is only a cover term for Ponzi. There has never at any time since the beginning of the Federal Reserve System in 1913 been any intention to pay anybody anything of substance.

Gold in hand and in the ground will be the only thing of substance left after the paper money empire collapses.

It is very easy for most people to get confused about long-term value (gold) versus the paper mania that is collapsing in front of our eyes. Before the economic collapse, it seemed that everybody had a manic mentality. This state of mind promotes widespread gambling, and the false euphoria causes a lapse in a sense of history of how the human condition always reverts to the mean. Only a few people can see the need to turn some of their paper money (non-substance) into gold (substance.) Such "foolishness" never enters the popular mind. In fact, the media is always opposed to owning physical gold. Can you guess why?

All opposition to the system based on spurious issues

Remember that the public media is controlled and all "opposition" to the system is controlled.

Opposition on or of fictitious issues promotes the government system. We are still trying to understand America in terms of capitalism and free enterprise when, in fact, America is now a corporatist country with a pretty face called democracy.

Who enforces those "progressive" mandates demanded by The New World Order when constitutional laws can't be passed? Who forces Major League Baseball to pull their All Star Game out of Georgia for passing "voting laws" when baseball still happily does business with supposed Communist enemies Cuba and China?

Corporations do the woke bidding of the powers-that-shouldn't be, because they control the sweet fiat money being spread around. Why do you think so much "stimulus" goes to corporations and so little to citizens? Follow the money, always.

Listen, my friend: All fiat systems in history have been socialist states, no matter the national pretense, as in democracy. All socialist states in history have a history of suppressing their own people. And all socialist fiat money States/countries transfer wealth and production to the State without payment.

Of course, as in America today, this transfer takes place via the depreciation of paper money. The owner of the money printing press owns and controls all wealth and production. President James A. Garfield said: "Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce." This is not Bloomberg News. It is the quiet understanding of reality among those who want the truth, no matter what it is.

Wealth preservation

Currency depreciation robs retirement pensions and all savings, but most people don't notice because it occurs gradually up to the latter stages. Then it is too late.

Only those very few people who began to exchange their paper money for gold are able to preserve their wealth.

The government has an ongoing unofficial policy of suppressing the gold price simply because the authorities don't want the people's attention drawn to the depreciating currency. We are now in the latter stages where official statistics are manipulated in order to control the general perception of reality. The rising number of gambling casinos is proof that, although our official statistics are manipulated in favor of depreciating currency, the general population senses the depreciation and uncertainty of the paper money regime.

What happens now?

A new period of economic incubation begins.

This will avail us of some quiet time before hyperinflation begins. Hyperinflation comes out of deflation.

Buy gold and silver if you can find them. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find around the world. As the commodity exchange breaks down and the futures market collapses, the prices will skyrocket.

Gold American Eagles, Canadian Maple Leafs, African Krugerrands and Australian Kangaroos, because they are stamped in English with their weight and gold content clearly marked, are the preferred forms of gold.

Buy some in the small sizes: ½ oz., ¼ oz. and 1/10 oz. For silver, buy pre-1965 U.S. silver coins. These are still legal tender — though their silver content makes them more valuable than their face value — so they can help you through the early stages of the switch to the gold standard.

Stock news

We also still believe in silver and gold stocks even though some are off the bargaining table (I recommended PAAS and SSRM in a 2015 issue of my monthly The Bob Livingston Letter® (subscribe here and get access to the entire catalogue online) at around $6.50 each. PAAS is now $33 and SSRM is at $15). Be willing to hold, and take possession! This means not in a bank deposit box.

If you are conducting your own research into gold stocks and gold miners, look for companies that are increasing their level of exploration. You should also consider companies that manufacture exploratory equipment.

  • When pessimism is black, the bottom is in.
  • Stocks start up before the economy, another clue.
  • When big-name brokers and banks predict a wipeout, the bottom is in.

And finally, once the mass issue of long-dated bonds is over, they will let the U.S. dollar fall through the floor in order to reflate the economy. Now get this: "They" may even let the price of gold rise substantially in order to force up inflationary expectations.

Sober people always avoid the Ponzi mentality, no matter what the crowd is doing or the circus atmosphere. Is the government insane to drop cash into people's bank accounts? The people really are confused about what the government is doing, but you do not have to be.

Yours for the truth,

Bob Livingston

The politics of fear have done their job and frightened Americans on a level almost no one alive has seen.

The lapdog media are doing their job, too... every advertisement is a Kumbaya message of "sacrifice everything you have for the 'public good.'

What is NOT trivial is the attempt to spread anti-American ideology into every area of American life…

....and the fact that too many in positions of authority immediately retreat when confronted by political correctness and anti-Americanism.

Yes, dear reader... you are not imagining things. They do want you to give over your life to the very government that caused the economic mess we're in.

Shakespeare couldn't have written such a farce!
