To the editor: America imperiled by Democrats, Biden

On Nov. 2, 2023, U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) introduced a bill to amend title 18, United States code, to “prevent the bulk sales of ammunition, promote recordkeeping and reporting about ammunition, end ammunition straw purchasing and require a background check before the transfer of ammunition by certain Federal Firearms licensees to non licensees” (U.S. Senate Bill S3223). This bill, if passed, would apply only to peaceful, law-abiding American citizens. It will not affect the dealings of terrorists, international arms traffickers, and smugglers.

According to Action on Armed Violence (a non-profit organization that analyzes and shares evidence of armed violence against civilians across the world), the Biden administration  left behind 358,530 assault rifles and 64,363 fully automatic rifles in Afghanistan.

In an April 2022 report, CNN confirmed that the Biden administration left $7.12 billion worth of weaponry (including 18 million rounds of ammunition) in the hands of Taliban terrorists.

Worse yet, the Pentagon has failed to track the exact numbers of ammunition funded with American taxpayer dollars.

The Biden administration mismanaged U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021, raising grave concerns that the armaments left behind would be used to escalate terror and violence globally. The warnings went unheeded and now these weapons are showing up in the hands of Hamas, Pakistani insurgents, and Mexican drug cartels on the U.S. border. Photographs of Hamas terrorists wielding U.S. fully automatic M4 rifles have been widely shared in the news media and social media after the murder of Israeli civilians on Oct. 7.

Corruption and contempt for lawful citizens has ravaged American politics to such an extent that our politicians aren’t pretending anymore. Entrenched ideologues like Warren and Blumenthal have more to gain by promoting Joe Biden’s destabilizing policies abroad than maintaining law and order at home. They have no qualms about supplying military rifles and ammunition to warring factions worldwide, while attempting to deny U.S. citizens from exercising our constitutional right to bear arms. Democrat-run states and cities defunded the police and quit prosecuting criminals, resulting in understaffed and under-trained law enforcement forces and rampant crime waves. Moreover, hordes of undocumented foreign nationals – predominantly young men – have been illegally crossing the nation’s southern border in record numbers. These developments bode ill for those who want to safeguard our families, friends, and communities.

    To the editor:
    It seems to me that Mr. Lindbergh needs a new note. He has played this one to death.

    Thank you Susan Burr McNeely for asking the questions. The solutions exist in reading and understanding the founding documents of our constitutional republic. We were a nation conceived in Liberty. Liberty to flourish requires responsibility both of which are in short supply today. The founders of our nation, while wise in understanding human nature and the history of both the Greek and Roman empires, probably could not have fathomed the depths of corruption that afflicts their creation. Fortunately the created a constitution that can be amended. Author Mark Levin has created a list of amendments that could potentially restore sanity, liberty and morality to our body politic. The list is as follows.

    “The eleven amendments proposed by Levin:[3]

    Impose Congressional term limits
    Repeal the Seventeenth Amendment, returning the election of Senators to state legislatures
    Impose term limits for Supreme Court Justices and restrict judicial review
    Require a balanced budget and limit federal spending and taxation
    Define a deadline to file taxes (one day before the next federal election)
    Subject federal departments and bureaucratic regulations to periodic reauthorization and review
    Create a more specific definition of the Commerce Clause

    Allow states to more easily amend the Constitution by bypassing Congress
    Create a process where two-thirds of the states can nullify federal laws
    Require photo ID to vote and limit early voting
    Levin would have these amendments proposed to the states by a convention of the states as described in Article Five of the Constitution.“

    Of course the powers that be have a vested interest in making sure none of these amendments are ever implemented. That includes Republicans as well as Democrats.
    Limit eminent domain powers

  3. We all seem to be able to identify the mistakes and problems–I don’t want to continue hearing the same complaints–We all know how to do that. What are your ideas on how to fix the problems? Let’s start hearing some examples of how to make this world a better place.

    Thank you Stuart. More people have to get their head out of the sand and see the reality of it all. We are wide open for something really bad to happen.
