Watchwoman on the Wall

There is a groundswell of support for the Second Amendment across America, yet the media has given it almost no coverage.Every Sheriff in every county in Floridahas signed a pledge to defend Second Amendment rights. That is huge news, but you probably have not heard about it.A well-armed and peaceful crowd of 160 showed up at the City Council meeting in Oak Harbor, Washingtonto speak their minds in defense of gun rights. The City Council promptly overturned their ban on arms in parks and the marina. That was on Feb. 06, and you may not have heard about that either.In California, that bastion of Democrat control, some counties are also rebelling.El Dorado county is adjacent to Nevada and Reno. When gun shows were curtailed by anti-gun forces in California, people in the San Francisco Bay area resorted to attending and purchasing at gun shows in Reno. They would then drive the guns back into California, entering through El Dorado county.Thus it may make it difficult for the California State government to block the entry of guns at the border if the border county has decided to defend the Second Amendment. El Dorado County’s Board of Supervisors has done just that: Last month (i/29), it passed a resolution in defense of the Second Amendment.

Here is the resolution from the El Dorado Board of Supervisors:


WHEREAS, the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, as part of United States Bill of Rights, ratified on December 15, 1791, protects the right of the people to keep and bear Arms; and,

WHEREAS, two landmark decisions issued by the United States Supreme Court established that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that Arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as, but not limited to, self-defense within the home, and that the right could not be infringed by the federal government (District of Columbia v. Heller); and that under the Fourteenth Amendment the right to keep and bear Arms was incorporated and would also prohibit state and local governments from infringement of the right (McDonald v. City of Chicago); and,

WHEREAS, sadly, recent high profile events within our country have sparked discussions of gun-control at the local, state and federal levels and include numerous gun-control proposals that assert to address gun violence while, in fact, many of these proposals would directly infringe upon the Second Amendment rights; and,

WHEREAS, the County of EI Dorado’s economy and rural quality are supported by ranching, farming and natural resources, and that the right to keep and bear Arms is fundamental to our right to protect our families, our property, our livestock, and our livelihood, and that the residents of this County respect the rights afforded by the Second Amendment through the recognition and support of responsible firearm ownership, training and awareness; and,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Supervisors of the County of El Dorado supports all discussions seeking new ideas to protect our citizens from violence but cannot abide by any provision infringing upon the Second Amendment.

PASSED AND ADOPTED by the Board of Supervisors of the County of El Dorado at a regular meeting of said Board, held the 29th day of January, 2013, by the following vote of said Board:

I CERTIFY THAT: Ayes: Veerkamp, Mikalaco, Nutting, Briggs

There is another California border county that has taken a stand for the Second Amendment as well. The main route from Oregon enters California through Siskiyou County. Here is the similar resolution from the Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors:

Have you heard about any of this? Even the local papers in Siskyou and El Dorado counties refused to carry the story when their own Boards of Supervisors passed these resolutions. The media is spiking the story. Perhaps they hope they can stop the groundswell of support for the Second Amendment by censorship.

Two days ago (2/23) there were 123 official listed Day of Resistance Rallies being held for the Second Amendment all over America, and probably numerous additional unofficial ones. Hereis a series of clips and stories about them.

This should be a springboard for pressure on Boards of Supervisors all over the country to consider similar resolution. I’d like to suggest you bring it to the attention of the BoS in your county.

Perhaps your friends have not heard about the widespread revolt to preserve our Second Amendment rights. Remember, all our rights are threatened without the preservation of the Second Amendment. Without you, this revolution may be buried by the media. Pass the word now so we never have to pass the ammunition later.

Dagny D’Anconia’s “Political Nasdaq” column is one of the unique benefits of To The Point. Her trading method and insights on the Nasdaq index are exclusively available on To The Point and nowhere else. TTP subscribers who have taken her trading advice have made hundreds of times the cost of TTP membership or more. Dagny is a brilliant scientist in a variety of fields with a number of very successful inventions to her credit. I am honored to have her as a friend, and to have her as a member of the To The Point team. Many of you have asked about her, and here is her response. -JW

I have worked as a scientist professionally both in government positions, and in the private sector. It was in that capacity that I first met Jack Wheeler many years ago through mutual friends. We both share a philosophy that values individual responsibility, rationality and freedom.

Economics has always been a fascinating subject for me. There was an occasion several years ago when I had the opportunity to visit the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (the Merc). As I was watching the trades ebbing and flowing in the S&P 500 futures pit, I was suddenly struck with the certain knowledge that this was a puzzle that was solvable. At that moment I did not know how to solve it, but I somehow knew intuitively that it was solvable.

I worked on it in my spare time for several years, and ultimately succeeded. I wanted to use my invention/discovery to benefit people like Jack Wheeler and you – people who value freedom. For that reason, I made it exclusively available to the subscribers to To The Point News.

Jack’s website acts as a kind of filter. Your average Leftist will probably not be able to stand the kind of things Jack writes. By subscribing, you have demonstrated that you are probably the sort of person I would want to have benefit from my invention. I wanted my invention to provide a selective advantage to people like us. Ultimately, the more people like us prosper, the more freedom will probably exist in the world. This was a contribution I could make.

With people like Jack Wheeler, and our soldiers overseas risking their lives for the sake of freedom, it seemed like it was the least I could do. After sufficient testing, I contacted Jack and offered it to the subscribers to To The Point News. After a period of time demonstrating it for Jack, he added me to his team.

I like my lifestyle as it is. I do not have any desire for fame. While I wanted to make my contribution, I did not want to sacrifice my own personal privacy or security. Therefore, I made it available to Jack with a requirement: Privacy through anonymity. When the time came to go to press, I had not given him a pen name. He took it upon himself to christen me with a name – and since it was then THE name, I had no choice but to use it. Jack has a very mischievous sense of humor. It was far more flamboyant than anything I would have come up with. I almost laughed myself off the chair when I saw it. Readers of Ayn Rand will understand why.

Thus Dagny D’Anconia was born. What is the Trend Indicator? I have measurements that I make which, when interpreted correctly, result in an indicator which I call the Trend Indicator. This indicator is useful in that it lets me know when the trend in the Nasdaq has changed. Using this indicator, I can quickly detect changes through the noise (unless the noise becomes extreme such as around the election).

I generally use this indicator to select when to take stock positions, and in which direction. You may have noticed that the Nasdaq and the other indices (DJIA, SP500etc.) tend to generally all move together in the same direction. My Trend Indicator is a general indicator for the broader market. However, it works most effectively with the Nasdaq. Since the Nasdaq is also more volatile than the broader indices, this presents a higher profit potential than the broader indices. The Trend Indicator is also useful in interpreting why the Nasdaq does what it does. Since it cuts through the noise and helps clarify motions in the stock market, it can shed light on why it goes up and down. It has allowed me to notice patterns in stock market behavior. I use this information when I give my market commentary in the Political Nasdaq column each week.

[In my line of work I repeatedly came across relevant geopolitical and intelligence information which had been overlooked by the media. Having uncovered these fascinating and critical things, I felt obligated to do my best to make the information available to people who could use it.
