email from a friend



I’m not a big fan of Glenn Beck and his style of presenting information on TV.  But, no matter how you feel about him, you can’t watch his show that aired this past Friday (3.24.2011), or read the transcript of this broadcast, and not be extremely concerned about the unchecked power wielded by the Federal Reserve.

I’ve been complaining to everyone who might listen for months now about how the Federal Reserve has been creating restrictive rules, without the authority to do so, that fly directly in the face of proven facts, common sense and financial well-being for American consumers, not to mention that these same rules will eventually put small businesses out of business, in favor of a monopoly by the four largest banks in the U.S.  Higher costs for all mortgage loans will result, as well as job losses in the hundreds of thousands caused by a rippling effect in all associated industries: realtors, title companies, insurance agents, appraisers, inspectors, builders, etc., will all be affected.

This is not “crazy” talk.  This is actually happening and the Fed’s rule will take effect on April 1st, 2011, unless a temporary restraining order (TRO) or injunction against the Federal Reserve is obtained by one of two industry associations that represents thousands of other mortgage loan originators just like me.  Both associations have recently filed lawsuits to stop the Fed’s insane, unfair attempts to rid big banks’ competition.  One of these plaintiffs has been granted a TRO hearing for 9:30, tomorrow morning.  I’m praying for U.S. District Court Judge Beryl A. Howell and that she will easily see the facts presented to allow for the plaintiff’s victory in federal court tomorrow & hope you will too.

SB 34….A Sneaky Attempt to go around 2nd Amendment

I wrote the following to my Senator Roger Wicker and urge all to do the same for their’s.


I understand that SB 34 is in Judiciary Committee.


This Bill states the following;

Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2011 -

Amends the federal criminal code to authorize the Attorney General to deny the transfer of a firearm or the issuance of a firearms or explosives license or permit (or revoke such license or permit) if the Attorney General:


(1) determines that the transferee is known (or appropriately suspected) to be engaged in terrorism or has provided material support or resources for terrorism; and

(2) has a reasonable belief that the transferee may use a firearm in connection with terrorism. Allows any individual whose firearms or explosives license application has been denied to bring legal action to challenge the denial.

Extends the prohibition against the sale or distribution of firearms or explosives to include individuals whom the Attorney General has determined to be engaged in terrorist activities. Imposes criminal penalties on individuals engaged in terrorist activities who smuggle or knowingly bring firearms into the UnitedStates.Authorizes the Attorney General to withhold information in firearms and explosives license denial revocation lawsuits and from employers if the Attorney General determines that the disclosure of such information would likely compromise national security.

I urge you to vote against this bill should it get out of committee.  I see a further encroachment by the federal government thru regulation to possibly deny my right to own a firearm as guarranteed me by the 2nd Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

Regulation is control and should not be allowed as it concerns ANY denial of rights under the 2nd Amendment.

I trust you will answer me in a positive manner and I urge you to lobby other Senators to offer resistance to the Obama administrations attempt to regulate ANY Firearms.
