Are YOU a 'target' for propaganda?
"The trouble with most folks isn't so much their ignorance...
It's know'n so many things that ain't so."

19th century humorist Josh Billings
Truth does not depend on the consensus of opinion.
Hitler's Minister of Enlightenment and Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, once boasted:
"Tell a big enough lie often enough and people will believe it's true."

Welcome to Kropf.us!
Hoping to clear some of the popular 'smoke screens' to truth.
Beware! As is frequently admitted, the targets for propaganda are usually
"the moderates who are not particularly well educated about the issues".
In political terms, they are usually manipulated as 'the swing vote'.

Why No One invades Switzerland!
Criminals love gun control... Criminal Governments LOVE Gun control EVEN MORE!!
"The message from New York City to Second Amendment supporters is clear: Drop dead."

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson
Ever wonder why the gun-control crowd who insist on trigger locks
don't ever explain that using them may rather increase accidental shootings??
What's MORE important? Public safety, or their control!? "When it comes to 'safe-storage', the real tragedy is that, despite all the professed concerns about 'the children', the anti-self-defense lobby has no qualms in playing politics with the lives of children." Dave Kopel

"Safe Storage" gun laws: Safe for the criminal!! • Fatal to The Merced Pitchfork Murders children!

Think about it... What do we insist upon before allowing children to use 'deadly missiles' commonly called automobiles? We demand education and proficiency from them, right? Similarly, the NRA attempts to educate children about 'miniature missiles' commonly called bullets (and firearms). But why does the gun-control gang regularly refuse The Eddie Eagle GunSafeŽ Program in all schools? Simply more evidence that the gun-control gang isn't concerned about safety nearly as much as with control!
...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed!
"The Second Amendment is the original Homeland Security Act."
(Florida Governor Jeb Bush - 2003)

Think or heard that the NRA trains vigilantes? Think again...
For the sixth straight year, the National Rifle Association's Law Enforcement Activities Division (LEAD) has trained a record number of our nation's law enforcement officers to become law enforcement firearm instructors.
In 2007, the LEAD trained a record 2,061 law enforcement instructors in the tactical use of handguns, shotguns, patrol rifles, select-fire and long-range rifles.
"Every year, the NRA is proud to say that we have helped keep the public safe by providing state-of-the-art training to law enforcement instructors," said Kayne Robinson, Executive Director of NRA General Operations.
Since 1960, LEAD has trained more than 50,000 such instructors, and more than 12,000 NRA Certified Instructors are currently training police officers and military personnel at home and abroad. For more information visit the LEAD website.

Guns, Crime, and the Swiss
"Although there is more per capita firepower in Switzerland than any place in the world, it is one of the safest places to be. Switzerland is the proof in the pudding of the argument that guns don't cause crime." Back in America, " After the Great War, the Congress, after hearing laudations about Swiss shooting skills, enacted the Civilian Marksmanship Program, which continues to this day..."
Target Switzerland - Swiss Armed Neutrality in World War II
"In 1943, Adolf Hitler proclaimed that "all the rubbish of small nations existing in Europe must be liquidated". In his diaries Josef Goebbels described Switzerland as "this stinking little state." Yet, as the Nazi tide spread across Europe from the Pyrenees to the Volga, one nation stood free, albeit armed to the teeth - its flag unbowed in a sea of twisted crosses."
"The sound of our guns is the sound of freedom."
How often do Americans use guns for defensive purposes?
"the number of people saved annually by guns would still be at least 40,000" "... [W]hen a robbery victim does not defend himself, the robber succeeds 88 percent of the time, and the victim is injured 25 percent of the time. When a victim resists with a gun, the robbery success rate falls to 30 percent, and the victim injury rate falls to 17 percent. No other response to a robbery – from drawing a knife to shouting for help to fleeing – produces such low rates of victim injury and robbery success."
"Fables, Myths & Other Tall Tales"
Including: The Second Amendment does not protect an individual right to keep and bear arms.
The NRA is on the front line every day in the fight to preserve our gun rights for shooting sports, hunting, and personal and Second Amendment protection.

  • It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
  • It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
  • It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
  • It is the soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
  • It is the soldier, who salutes the flag... who serves under the flag,
    and whose coffin is draped by the flag ... who allows the protester to burn the flag.

“We will never disarm any American who seeks to protect his or her family from fear and harm.”
“And by the way, the Constitution does not say Government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms.
The Constitution says ‘the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed’.”
“No group does more to promote gun safety and respect for the laws of this land than the NRA, and I thank you.” President Ronald Reagan
“Very clearly, Governor Reagan — a long-time member of NRA — shared our fervent belief in
the absolute meaning of the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution:
that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms applies to the individual citizen and that it is a right inviolate, which cannot be abridged.”
“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.” Thomas Jefferson

Restoring the (undeniable) Biblical principles that guided America's early years
'If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace, we ask not your counsel or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains rest lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.'
Samuel Adams, Philadelphia State House, 1776

"Your laws ignore our deepest needs, Your words are empty air
You've stripped away our heritage, You've outlawed simple prayer
Now gunshots fill our classrooms, And precious children die
You seek for answers everywhere, And ask the question "Why"?
You regulate restrictive laws, Through legislative creed
And yet you fail to understand, That God is what we need!"

"What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God,
and in doing so, we open the doors to hatred and violence."

John Forbes Kerry should be Prosecuted!

  1. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
  2. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
  3. No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
  4. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Amendments to the United States Constitution
(The 1st ten amendments are also known as the Bill of Rights.)

'Separation of Church and State' is unconstitutional non-sense!

Article XII, Section 1 of New York's Constitution covers both the "organized" and "unorganized" militia and reads:

The defense and protection of the state and of the United States is an obligation of all persons within the state. The legislature shall provide for the discharge of this obligation and for the maintenance and regulation of an organized militia.

Article 2, Section 4 of the New York Civil Rights Law also reads almost identical to the Federal Second Amendment:

Right to keep and bear arms. A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms cannot be infringed.

"'The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.' The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right." [Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846)]

Bloomberg??? The Anti-Perot by Fred Siegel
"But from the perspective of 2007's angry voters, Bloomberg is on the wrong side of these issues. He hasn't spoken much about Iraq, but what he has said has been largely supportive of President Bush. He not only supports the immigration bill, but he also doesn't see massive illegal immigration as a problem. He is the personification of inequality, of a social hierarchy in which the super-rich seem to have seceded from the rest of the country. As for out-of-control government spending, Bloomberg's budgets have grown at twice the rate of inflation. And when it comes to outsourcing, Bloomberg built his fortune on the growth of the global economy. Rather than representing an alternative, Bloomberg incarnates the very things people are angry about.
Bloomberg argues that his wealth makes him immune to being bought. He's right, but the problem of money corrupting politics doesn't go away. Bloomberg merely reverses the process. He uses his fortune to buy interest groups, who can then impose their agenda on the rest of the population through him. 'Money-bags Mike,' as he has been described in both New York and D.C., represents what liberals of an older vintage, and most Americans in general, have long feared—the marriage of money and power."

Ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN...
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." Theodore Roosevelt 1907
