From the Mouth of Matuszak: A Few Words To Costas & Morgan

Piers "the Brit" should stick to Magna Carta. He has yet to read The Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers. He also failed history, evidently, and just sticks the to that talking points his puppet masters let him speak.

Almost a week ago, now, Kansas City Chief's star linebacker murdered his girlfriend, then killed himself.

Since then, the gun grabbing socialists have attempted to use the event as an excuse to push their agenda. The did this after the theater shooting in Colorado during a screening of the last Dark Knight movie. They did so after Gabby Giffords was shot, though it was her constituents with concealed carry permits that subdued her shooter. Their list of excuses go on and on. However, none of their rhetoric can topple the facts.

To those individuals, such as Bob Costas and Piers Morgan,  that hate the concepts of individual liberty, the natural right to life, and the natural right of the "Pursuit of Happiness" otherwise known as the right to one's own property; I have two words:

MOLON LABE!

Piers Morgan made a statement about the Second Amendment being about muskets. In that argument he challenged his opponent to quote where the Constitution stated that it was about modern weapons. His opponent responded with "right next to 'muskets'".

Piers doesn't know the US Constitution. He knows the socialist oligarchs' talking points. See, socialist oligarchs want to take them away from people so they cannot defend themselves against the tyranny and theft of individual rights they wish to impose. Piers doesn't understand that is the very reason for the Second Amendment. He has not gone back and read the transcriptions and opinion papers of the days prior to the ratification of the Constitution with the Bill of Rights amended to it. No, he wants to use some lie invented to support the talking points of those who support instilling tyranny.

You see, Piers, the Second Amendment is designed so that individuals can defend themselves and their families against the government should it overstep the US Constitution  and become a tyranny.

You see, Piers, twelve years prior to the writing of the US Constitution, its authors had resigned themselves to the fact that a tyrant was unwilling to allow the thirteen colonies to govern themselves with conservative ideals. He violated their natural rights. The more they complained and petitioned the government of your home country, the more your tyrant of a king violated those rights. It got so bad that they saw no other recourse remaining than to go war over it.

Among those crimes against individual liberty that George employed against the colonies was gun control. He restricted ownership of those muskets, confiscating many. In some areas, they were limited to one per household for hunting. In other areas, he made them illegal. His purpose was to disarm the colonists so he could control them through the use of force. You see, his second move was to station his military in the very homes of those colonists.

You are correct that it was farmers with muskets that went to war against the tyrant. That is the point, but not your point. If your manner of thought were applied, they would have gone to war using slingshots and arrows. You see, Piers, we are not stupid. We know you sided with King George.

To further your education in American History, we were lucky that, back then, many of the colonists were adept at hiding those muskets.

Now, here's another little fact about those muskets. They were the weapon of choice for the tyrannic and oppressive government forces. The colonists having those weapons evened the battlefield. Having those weapons led to winning the war. See, Piers, necessity is the mother of two things:  invention and acquisition. Due to having those muskets, the patriots were able to invent better weapons as well as acquire weapons such as canons and rockets. Had they no means to defend and fight, they would not have gotten the support of France, who, instead, would have seen the war as a lost cause not worthy of the investment.

Let's move ahead to the days of the writing of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment was an afterthought, yes. The reason was that the writers, at first, thought that right didn't require statement. They thought it was a given. It was only after several indicated that not stating it explicitly would lead to leaving citizens unarmed and subjected to yet another tyranny. The US Constitution itself was a much more statist form of government than the Articles of Confederation they meant to replace. So, those who were to ratify the US Constitution wanted safeguards to insure that would never happen. The result was the Bill of Rights. The importance of the Second was to insure that citizens would retain the power to defend and insure the rest of them.

That would require the citizens to be free to arm themselves with the weapons of choice of the various militia. Those militia are the US Military forces as well as state level militia. We still have state level militia. They are called the state police and the state guards, such as they have in Georgia and have recently reinstated in Arizona. The modern weapon of choice for them is the M4 Carbine, part of the AR15/M16 Armalite family. Your British SAS also uses the Armalite, by the way.

Some argue that the Second Amendment is also so free, independent citizens may rise and defend the US against invasion by foreign armies. That is also within the thinking of the framers. So here is another little fact for you. The most proliferated weapon in the world is the AK-47.

The logic then follows that free, US Citizens should be allowed to arm themselves with M4s or AK-47s in order to protect their lives, liberty, and property from tyranny, be it foreign or domestic.

Mr. Costas, I hope you paid attention to the lesson presented to our foreign friend, Mr. Morgan. It seems you failed to learn that lesson as well. If you didn't, then you support tyranny.

You also fail to understand the fact that strict gun control causes an increase in violent crime, not a decrease. Criminals do not obey the law. They don't care about the law. They also do not care about individual rights, much like you. So, they will still break the law and have weapons. They will use them. Those who obey the laws are then left victims.

I know, you will use that false meme that the local militia (police) are meant to protect the people from crime. No, they aren't. Their job is to deter, yes, if they are there when a criminal is considering his acts. However, the cops cannot be everywhere. To be honest, I'm glad they are not. I really am not comfortable with the idea of cops posted outside my house and invading my privacy even though I have no desire to break the law. The job of the police is actually to investigate crime and mitigate its effects. It is not their job to provide protection. The US Supreme Court has made that very ruling not once, but twice that I know of.

Would people with lawfully concealed weapons been able to stop the shooting in Aurora, Colorado? No. You are correct that it would probably have happened anyway. That left wing terrorist would have done his deed regardless. However, if someone had a concealed firearm and been able to present it, the number of casualties may have been greatly mitigated. But, you see, those with CCPs are also trained to avoid shooting in a way that will harm innocent bystanders. That was the case in Tucson, Arizona when Giffords was shot. The crowd prevented returning fire. So those with concealed permits tackled and restrained the assailant, instead.

Here is another fact for you, Mr. Costas. After Arizona did away with the requirement to have a permit in order to carry concealed, violent crime dropped. A criminal is less likely to violently attack potential victims when as many as fifty percent of them could be armed. Anybody with a rudimentary knowledge of the principles of war knows that you do not attack a defending victim or enemy with less than a three to one firepower advantage. Two guys with shotguns will not attack a group of ten where five of them may be armed with .45cal concealed handguns. It's just plain stupid to do so. Another little fact is that violent crime in Arizona is mostly attributed to illegal immigrants, drug smugglers, and human traffickers.

And here is one more. You can have your research analysts confirm this. After King Dick Daley II of Chicago took handguns away from his serfs, the violent crime rate in Chicago skyrocketed. In Georgia, a town did the opposite. Their town council passed a resolution, unanimously, that passed ratification with no opposing votes. That resolution was that all property owners, land owners, and home owners in the town must own a firearm to protect their property. Crime dropped to nearly zero percent. It was years before they even suffered a petty theft.

Class is dismissed for the day. Go home. Study. Do your homework and your research. Stop lying for just thirty days and you may actually break the habit. In the meantime:

Molon Labe.

Google Donates Drones to World Wildlife Foundation

Google has donated five million dollars and some of it's own drones, to the World Wildlife Foundation.

The WWF will use the drones to patrol areas where endangered animals live.

Their plan is to catch poachers entering protected areas.

If they can do that they hope that authorities can be notified in enough time to not just catch the poachers, but maybe even prevent them from accomplishing their goals.

Over the last year poaching has seen a significant increase.

Rhinos have specifically been targeted, with attacks on them jumping from thirteen to 588.

UK's Ash Die Off Spreads Further Yet

The United Kingdom's ash problem has grown much more serious.

Ash trees are being killed off, all over the UK, by a fungus.

As of November 1, there were one hundred and fifteen areas where the fungus was seen across England, Scotland, and Wales.

Since then, the number has jumped to 291 locations, including some in Northern Ireland.

Now, the government is in a small panic to find a way to stop the spread of the fungus.

However, environmentalist groups say that it is too little too late, and that there is no going back now.

Chalara Fraxinea, the fungus in question, was first discovered in the UK on March 7.

It was brought over by infected wood from the Netherlands, and since has been declared a national emergency.

Concern, over the spread of the fungus, is such that there's even an app to map locations where it has spread to.

The same fungus has killed over ninety percent of the ash population in Denmark.

South African Military Plane Crashes Killing 11

A South African military plane crashed Wednesday night.

Searchers found the wreckage, on Thursday.

All eleven people on board were killed.

The remains of the Douglas DC-3 Dakota were found in the Drakensberg mountains near Ladysmith in Kwa Zulu Natal province.

Military investigators have not been able to discover what mission the plane left Pretoria's Waterkloof Air Force Base on.

The secretive nature of it's mission has added to conspiracy talk, in the country.

Syria Readies Sarin Bombs

Despite warnings from the international community, Syria's military has begun preparing chemical weapons for use.

Evidence has come out that they have begun readying bombs full of sarin gas.

Sarin is a deadly nerve agent, and each bomb could kill thousands.

The bombs will be active for sixty days, after that they will begin to become unstable and must be destroyed.

Syria's government is seeing itself backed into a corner, as rebels take over more and more of the country, and heavy fighting occurs in Damascus.

The civil war has killed over fifty thousand people, during it's twenty-one months.

Turkish Forces Kill 13 Members of the PKK

Turkey's latest military operation against the Kurdistan Workers Party, began on Monday.

So far it has resulted in thirteen members of the PKK being killed and five captured.

Most of the operation is being carried out via helicopters.

The PKK has been fighting since 1984 to establish Kurdistan, in southeast Turkey.

Since then, over forty thousand people have been killed in the conflict.

Turkey, which considers the PKK a terrorist organization, accuses Syria of supporting them, even during the current civil war there.

Pittsburgh Bomb Squad Called Out For Smoking Bag at Airport

Pittsburgh International Airport called out the bomb squad, Thursday morning.

Smoke started pouring out of a bathroom, but there was no fire, so the bomb squad was called in.

They eventually found a burnt bag inside of a plumbing access.

Fire marshalls are investigating how the satchel got there.

The nearest concourse was shut down during the incident, but is now reopened.

During it's closure flights were redirected to another concourse.

IDF Troops Accosted by Palestinian Police

The Israeli Defense Forces are investigating what they call a "serious event".

On Thursday, members of the IDF were on patrol, in Hebron.

Palestinian Authority police blocked their path and mutual shoving began.

A mob of around two hundred and fifty Palestinians began growing and throwing objects at the soldiers.

The IDF members were forced to use stun grenades to disperse the mob.

If PA police begin causing trouble with the IDF it would be a major problem for the tenuous cease fire that is in place.

Egypt's Military Moves in to Enforce Peace

Egypt's military moved in Thursday morning to force a halt in violence.

Supporters and opponents of President Morsi have spent the last few days in deadly clashes, with each other and police.

The Republican Guard moved in around the presidential palace, the scene of some of the worst violence.

Seven people have been killed and over three hundred and fifty injured as the two sides fought over whether or not Morsi should stay in power.

Morsi seized huge amounts of power, on November 22, including blocking the judiciary from overturning any of his decrees.

Protests began then, but only grew after Morsi's government passed a constitution, on November 30.

Opponents rallied together crying out against the constitution's heavy amount of Shariah law.

The country is supposed to vote on the constitution on December 15, but most opposition groups are talking about boycotting the vote.

Now fears have come that the military is taking sides, in the conflict.

However, General Mohamed Zaki assured the country that, "The armed forces, and at the forefront of them the Republican Guard, will not be used as a tool to oppress the demonstrators."
  
It was the military whose joining the populace helped overthrow former President Mubarak, on February 2011.

Bopha's Toll Nearing 500

According to the latest numbers, the death toll in the Philippines has climbed to nearly five hundred.

477 people are reportedly dead due to Typhoon Bopha.

Hundreds more are missing, in the storm which has brought deluges of rain.

Massive flash floods are blamed for most of the deaths.

Flooding continues throughout most of the country.

Around two hundred thousand people have left the effected areas.

The entire south of the nation is shut down as the country bears out the storm.

Moving west at about seventeen miles per hour the nearly four hundred mile wide storm is expected to leave the Philippines sometime Friday.

3 Killed by New Zealand Tornado

A tornado struck Hobsonville, New Zealand, Thursday, leaving three dead.

Striking the suburb of Auckland, at 12:30pm NZDT.

Winds over sixty miles per hour tore through town, both before and after.

They leveled trees, tore up buildings roofs, and threw anything they could around.

The tornado made about one hundred and fifty homes inhabitable, as it killed three people and injured dozens.

All three of the victims were construction workers, who had taken shelter in a truck, when a concrete slab was knocked over, onto the truck, and crushed them.

A second, smaller twister hit near Ngongotaha, causing damage, but no injuries or deaths.

Power is out throughout the Auckland area, and workers spent most of the day attempting to restore it.

High winds continued, and were expected to climb back up to over sixty miles an hour, over night.
