TEA Party A Bit Overboard?

I try to be as objective as I can with my posts, but my life experiences undoubtedly "color" my views somewhat. I received an email this morning from the TEA Party claiming:
"Open your eyes and look at the past two years objectively:

  • Killer drones primed to kill U.S. citizens;

  • Jailing citizens without due process;

  • Assassinations of citizens endorsed by the Obama regime;

  • Active seeking out of top military officials willing to fire on U.S. citizens;

  • Stockpiling of billions of hollow point killer rounds by the alphabet agencies;

  • Obama's regime demanding the disarmament of America;

  • Grabbing your guns without rhyme or reason;

  • Destruction of the Constitution and the targeting of the Second Amendment."
Evaluating these claims based upon what I have gleaned from numerous sources over the past few years, I believe their claims are  noticeably over-the-top  - to wit:

Killer drones primed to kill U.S. citizens - Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), also known as "drones", are quite capable of delivering devastating, terminal payloads. Yes, they can kill from above, and do so quite effectively in combat zones. The proposed, purported (1. To have or present the often false appearance of being or intending; profess) use of drones within the geographical United States is for observation in high crime areas. Is that a fact? Only our government knows for sure. Do I trust the government to keep it's word? No. Ask the Native Americans about the truthfulness of government promises.
Politicians are noted for their ability to tell half-truths - and outright lies - in order to accomplish their goals, and the government is run by politicians. Politics is a profession of smoke and mirrors. Would they use drones to kill U.S. citizens? I am not naive enough to believe they wouldn't. Is that the plan? Who knows?

Jailing citizens without due process - This is now possible, thanks to the so-called "Patriot Act", the National Defense Authorization Act, and the left-wing administration. The government now has the authority to conduct warrantless searches, detain, arrest, seize personal property, and incarcerate citizens for indeterminate periods based solely upon "suspicion of ________". Those two "acts" have abridged the First and Third Amendments in the Bill of Rights under the guise of keeping the country safe... and it is safe - just not from the actions of the government itself.

 Assassinations of citizens endorsed by the Obama regime - The only verifiable instance I am aware of (and one verifiable instance does make the claim true) concerns the termination of one Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical American-born Muslim cleric living in Yemen. However, his involvement in - and support of - terrorist activities against the United States interests could easily be interpreted as al-Awlaki being an "enemy combatant". One does not have to be a foreigner to be an active enemy of the USA.

Active seeking out of top military officials willing to fire on U.S. citizens - According to reports from several usually reliable sources:
"Dr. Jim Garrow (a Nobel Peace Prize winner) made a shocking claim about what we can expect to see in Obama's second term. Garrow made the following Facebook post"
I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed.
So, who is the source?
Garrow replied: “The man who told me this is one of America’s foremost military heroes.”

There are other, background goings-on which make Garrow's claim believable. The next item is one of those goings-on.

 Stockpiling of billions of hollow point killer rounds by the alphabet agencies - DHS alone, has ordered FOUR BILLION (4,000,000,000) rounds of ammunition. That's enough to shoot every person in the USA ten times, and then eradicate Lichtenstein, Monte Carlo and Vatican City. More recently, DHS has also requested the purchase of 7,000 semi-automatic AR-15 carbines (rifles). One can only guess at the intended use... my guess is that these are not for deer hunting, or recreational shooting.

Obama's regime demanding the disarmament of America - This is in agreement with the UN "Small Arms Trade Treaty", which Obama (and I assume his new Sec'y of State, John Kerry) can barely wait to sign, since it is the first step toward taking guns away from law abiding citizens. Luckily, treaties do not have the force of law unless they are ratified by the Senate. Ratification also requires that two-thirds of the senators present concur. "Present" is the word that gives me some concern - politicians have been known to have votes without informing the opposition party.

Grabbing your guns without rhyme or reason - See Obama's recent 23 asinine Executive Orders for "gun control" - these are the first steps toward registration, which is the first step toward confiscation. The left is nibbling away at our rights, one bite at a time.

Destruction of the Constitution and the targeting of the Second Amendment - Obama never misses an opportunity to circumvent the Constitution, which borders upon a violation of his Oath of Office, and treason. The Constitution seems to be an annoyance - a stumbling block - to Obama and the other left-wingers in the country. The Second Amendment recognizes our God-given right to self defense by affirmation of our "right to keep and bear arms". As such, Amendment II is the keystone to all our Constitutional rights, and was included in the #2 spot to protect our citizenry from the imposition of a tyrannical form of government. If  the Second Amendment is ever abridged or deleted, the rest of our rights will be eliminated in short order.

Again, the above is based upon reports and personal observations over the last 7 decades. Nothing more than my thoughts on what's happening in our country.
