Greetings to all and welcome new friends to the EastWing.
Never in my life would I have guessed how the passing of my beloved Sophia, The Calico Conservative Republican Cat, would produce such an outpouring of commiseration. For the kind words and thoughts offered in memory of Sophia, I thank you one and all.
The sheer volume of condolences almost overwhelmed my email system. My normal email pattern for something said at the EastWing on a Sunday Evening is to start to get feedback late Wednesday. By Tuesday Morning of last week, I’d received more email than I’d received in the whole month of August. And it kept coming, and still is. Much as I’d like to, I simply can’t answer each and every email, but if you sent, then you know how much your email means to me.
I do have to acknowledge one item delivered by UPS Overnight. My long time friends here at the EastWing may recall that about three and a half years ago Sophia had a visitor from out by that west Texas town of El Paso. I told the story of the Cowboy who came to see if Sophia was real or just a figment of my imagination. The Cowboy met and fell in love with Sophia and offered to take her back to West Texas. Sophia choose the EastWing.
Last Thursday the Brown USP Truck brought two items. The first was a hand written letter from the Cowboy telling me how much he enjoyed meeting Sophia and me. The second item was a small wreath that he asked I place on Sophia’s grave. That little wreath, well that little wreath was made out of rope, Cowboy Rope. The kind he uses to work the cattle on his ranch. Said he’d always remember Sophia, told him I would too. Damn Republican Cat.
Last week I forgot to tell ya, “the seasons are a changing”. And to think I would have told you we would fall into Autumn before we meet again. I didn’t say, but we did anyway. The She’s favorite time of the year. I think it’s all the pretty colors everywhere you look that makes the She fall in love with the fall.
A short time back a US Senate vote went largely unreported in our country. Not a single main stream media carried the story on the nightly news. The event was the Senate voting to ratify UN Resolution 2117. Now UN Resolution 2117 is an attempt by the United Nations to impose worldwide gun control.
President Obama signed this Resolution 2117 on behalf of the citizens of the United States of America. But it’s not that simple. In order for UN Resolution 2117 to become the Law Of The Land, it must be approved by the U.S. Senate.
The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps the one of most interest is point number 11. It: ” CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION and DISARMAMENT of all UN countries” . The President of the United States signed that resolution on behalf of you and me.
The vote 53-46. The U.S. Senate voted 53 opposed to, and 46 in favor of the Resolution 2117. Not much news media of this vote. Now, Which 46 Senators Voted to Destroy Us? Well, let’s have their names become well known! I’ve listed their names below. If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 “legislators” I’m encouraging you to vote against them.
In that 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The Statement of Purpose from the Senate Bill reads: “To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.” The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry, now get this, on all private guns and ammo.
Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power. That foreign power being the United Nations Organization.
Here are the 46 names of the senators who voted to give our rights to the United Nations.
Baldwin (D-WI) Baucus (D-MT) Bennett (D-CO) Blumenthal (D-CT) Boxer (D-CA) Brown (D-OH)
Cantwell (D-WA) Cardin (D-MD) Carper (D-DE) Casey (D-PA) Coons (D-DE) Cowan (D-MA) Durbin (D-IL)
Feinstein (D-CA) Franken (D-MN) Gillibrand (D-NY) Harkin (D-IA) Hirono (D-HI) Johnson (D-SD)
Kaine (D-VA) King (I-ME) Klobuchar (D-MN) Landrieu (D-LA) Leahy (D-VT) Levin (D-MI) McCaskill (D-MO)
Menendez (D-NJ) Merkley (D-OR) Mikulski (D-MD)Murphy (D-CT) Murray (D-WA) Nelson (D-FL)
Reed (D-RI) Reid (D-NV) Rockefeller (D-WV) Sanders (I-VT) Schatz (D-HI) Schumer (D-NY)
Shaheen (D-NH) Stabenow (D-MI) Udall (D-CO) Udall (D-NM) Warner (D-VA) Warren (D-MA)
Whitehouse (D-RI) Wyden (D-OR)
Guess you could add Barak Obama’s name to the above list, but his signature didn’t count when it was time to vote to protect the constitutional rights of Americans.
Did anybody notice a lack of any Republicans on the above list of traitors to the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States? Yeah, I noticed that too.
Now before some “Progressive” starts accusing me of being some kinda poorly educated, gun packing, hillbilly preacher from the back roads of Appalachia, I’m not. I can both READ and WRITE, I do not own a gun, but have been accused of being a Hillbilly Preacher. Guess that comes from an early childhood where all the uncles on both my father and mother side were Hillbilly Preachers. As a little feller, I thought the words “Uncle and Preacher” were one and the same. It was in my world, back in the day, Uncles were Preachers.
Stay safe in Afghanistan.
