Mark Herr here shares a video history of the Bundy Standoff

Mark Herr, President and co-founder of Center for Self Governance (CSG), made a video history of a standoff between people and the government.  People gathered to support Cliven Bundy’s right to graze on the land that he and his ancestors have been grazing on for generations.

I had the privilege of being in some of Mark Herr’s CSG classes, during the time of the Bundy standoff.  Mark is one of the brave people in our country, who sacrifices most of his life in order to stand up for our liberty, and educate others how to stand up.

0314_School Shootings: Isn’t It Time to Arm Teachers? – February 2018 — letter from a friend

Donna Jack
March 17, 2017

A friend of mine sent this to me several days ago.  It is well thought out.

It has been ludicrous [stupid or unreasonable and deserving to be laughed at] to make schools gun free zones (the federal law put into place in 1990).  This irrational law has only guaranteed that all our public school children and teachers are sitting ducks — inviting evil people to shoot at the innocent ones in schools.
A letter written by a friend:

It seems that every time there is a highly publicized mass shooting in America these days, instead of grieving the loss of life and blaming the actual perpetrator, we are treated to an immediate knee-jerk attack by the media and politicians on law abiding gun owners, gun organizations, and even the 2nd Amendment itself.

However, rather than be distracted by the politics of gun ownership in America, we need to have a frank discussion about what we can do right now to make our children more safe.

Should we increase surveillance and reporting?  This may help with deterrence.  Yet the Parkland school had monitored security cameras, and there were multiple contacts with the shooter over the years by school administrators and law enforcement (including tips called in to the FBI).  These measures did not stop the killer.

Perhaps we should install metal detectors and have security personnel pat down students and visitors, like we do at stadiums and airports?  This too may help, although it tends to result in crowds forming at choke points (creating an easy target for a truck, bomb, or shooter).  It also doesn’t prevent the killer from pulling the fire alarm to bring everyone outside.

What about “better” background checks?  Unfortunately, this will not stop someone with murder in their heart.  Even if a person has been banned from owning a firearm due to their age, criminal record, or mental health history, it’s not difficult to acquire a gun through an illegal “straw purchase” (having someone else buy it for you).  Firearms can also be readily obtained on the black market.

Some propose banning the sale of certain types of firearms (or even banning them  [firearms] altogether).  However, we can’t make guns go away, any more than we can make knives and pressure cookers go away.  Guns have been manufactured for hundreds of years, and semi-automatic firearms have been around since the 1800’s.  The technology is fairly simple, and you can make your own semi-automatic firearm with a drill press and a file.

 “Chicago GOP Files Lawsuit Against Chicago Public Schools:
Student Walkout Political Indoctrination, Pure and Simple”

By Dr. Susan Berry  


 The Chicago Republican Party plans to file a lawsuit against the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) over its decision to organize students to participate in Wednesday’s student walkouts that promoted gun control.

“It’s appalling that 10 to 14-year-old kids would be coerced, by their teachers, to participate in a political demonstration,” said Chris Cleveland, chairman of the Chicago GOP, in a statement. “A 10-year-old kid isn’t going to have an informed opinion on these political matters, and shouldn’t be expected to have the fortitude to hold a different opinion from everyone else in his or her classroom. This is political indoctrination, pure and simple.” Continue reading

0311_”Teachers’ Unions Support Student Walkouts As Protest To Change Gun Laws” By Dr. Susan berry — another effort from the Left (who have great control over most of our schools) to destabilize our country.

Donna Jack
March 14, 2018

I have witnessed since my first child went to school around 1975, that the schools have been used as Change Agents – to mold our country into a socialist paradise [which is an oxymoron (a combination of contradictory or incongruous words)]. One of the first things socialist governments do as they take over is to confiscate all guns.

This walk-out today is a continuation of the efforts of the Left to take away all guns.

The schools in my part of Colorado carried out this “walk-out” tactic during school hours, to use students to give the impression that the students were rising up — because they wanted the majority of 3 republicans on the school district school board to be recalled.  Once again, it was controlled and orchestrated by the school unions.  Unions pressured teachers, and teachers pressured students into marching.  Teachers called in”sick” and did not come to school.  This put a huge burden on the school district.  Students didn’t know why they were marching, except for sound bites told to them by their teachers.

You will find that this is the case today as well.  One friend told today, that her son’s teacher told his English class that they had to protest today.  The peer pressure alone is going to empty the schools — kids don’t like to be singled out – and they don’t want to be punished with low grades, or other methods of punishment used in the classrooms.

A quote from the end of the article below:

“Asking them to disrupt learning time, during the regular school day, to make a political statement is unconscionable,” she adds. “It shows what little regard national organizers actually have for the students whose individual schools they hope to destabilize or for the adults who are charged with running them.”

If one big government is bad, imagine how much worse two big governments would be.

Fred Holden forwarded a letter from Scott G. Bullock, President and General Counsel for Institute for Justice.  An excerpt from that letter:

“The Institute for Justice is headed to the big screen this spring Little Pink House, the story of IJ client Susette Kelo’s historic battle to save her home from eminent domain abuse, will make its debut in multiple theaters across the country this April.  Starring two-time Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener and Emmy nominee Jeanne Tripplehorn, and featuring cameos of several IJ staffers, this film captures the real-life drama of IJ’s work—and the courage all IJ clients share in fighting for their rights against seemingly insurmountable odds.”


Next month (April 20, 2018) a movie (“Little Pink House”) will be released to some theaters.  In Denver it will be released May 4-10.  See other release dates near the end of this article.

0308_Broward County Likely ‘Inspiration’ for Obama School Discipline Policy to Report Fewer Arrests, Suspensions (A policy that brings down the statistics of crimes)_ Dr. Susan Berry_Breitbart Feb 26, 2018

The cause of the murders in the Broward County school district was created by their policy to stop reporting “school suspensions, expulsions, and arrests” in order to make it look like crimes were not taking place in minority communities.  Their policies preceded “The Obama School Discipline Policy [that] was to report fewer arrests, suspensions”, etc.

 “Broward County Likely ‘Inspiration’ for Obama School Discipline Policy to Report Fewer Arrests, Suspensions”

By Dr. Susan Berry

The Broward County school district’s adoption of a school discipline policy that was praised by the Obama administration for seeking to reduce the reported number of school suspensions, expulsions, and arrests may have played a role in the fact that Nikolas Cruz remained under the radar until his shooting rampage in Parkland, Florida, on February 14.

 “The facts pattern that has emerged strongly suggests it played a role,” Manhattan Institute senior fellow Max Eden tells Breitbart News. “It’s not actually accurate to say that what Broward County did was the result of the Obama policy.  

It might be more accurate to say that what Broward County did was in some way the inspiration for Obama’s policy.”

 The Obama-era Departments of Education and Justice – under education secretary Arne Duncan and Attorney General Eric Holder-issued school guidelines in 2014 that claimed students of color are “disproportionately impacted” by suspensions and expulsions, a situation they said leads to a “school-to-prison pipeline” that discriminates against minority and low-income students.

 “Broward County was the first to have the goal of lowering suspensions, lowering expulsions, lowering arrests,” explains Eden. 

“And, so, they decided to reduce police involvement by not bringing in cops to arrest kids for a whole range of serious offenses, and then, as you would expect, the arrests go down when you stop arresting. That was taken to be a sign of success, based on that metric alone.” Continue reading

Yesterday, March 2, 2018, was Billy Graham’s funeral.

He touched the lives of countless people, including the households of both my husband and me when we were growing up.  Our parents, and we, listened to Billy Graham on the radio, and watched him on television, as he preached at many Crusades.

I was in high school when Billy Graham had a crusade in Denver.  That evening, to my surprise, I found myself walking down the many stairs, joining thousands of other people on the floor of the auditorium.  There I rededicated my heart and life to Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.

Hundreds of millions of people in 185 countries, had their hearts touched and changed as Billy Graham preached the Word of God, and shared the love of Jesus, with grace, simplicity and truth.  We can’t know how many people’s lives have been changed by all those people who heard Billy Graham preaching, and then shared with others.  And people still hear his preaching at the Billy Graham website (www.billygraham.org).
