‘BETO’S’ PLAN: Law Enforcement Would ‘Visit’ Homes to Confiscate Guns

[The 2nd Amendment declares in very strong language that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms “…shall not be infringed.” A case can be made that both Pete Buttigieg and Beto O’Rourke (and other gun control advocates) are calling for Treason. –Bob]

‘Recover that firearm and to make sure that it is purchased, bought back…’

(Claire Russel, Liberty Headlines) After clashing with Pete Buttigieg over gun control policy during last night’s Democratic primary, Robert Francis O’Rourke (“Beto”) admitted this morning that he’d enforce his mandatory buyback of so-called “assault-style” rifles by allowing law enforcement to go door-to-door.

An Escalating War On Cash

By John Browne – Re-Blogged From http://www.Silver-Phoenix500.com

China, India and Sweden are among those with plans under way to eradicate cash.

However, in today’s world of fiat-based Central Planning, cash represents a REAL problem for the Central Banks.
