Some may have forgotten what happened at Waco. But some of us remember. On February 28, 1993, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms raided the Branch Davidian compound and demonized David Koresh, quickly militarizing the situation. Innocents, women and children died a horrible death in fire and smoke.
Joe Biden wholeheartedly supported the actions of federal agents in the Waco standoff, and visibly sneered at witnesses at the Senate hearings who questioned and/or criticized the agents’ acts. Biden was a key proponent of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act in 1994, which banned some kinds of semiautomatic rifles, with a sunset provision that allowed these weapons to become legal again ten years later. The law also allocated substantial funds for construction of new prisons, established boot camps for delinquent minors, and brought the death penalty for crimes related to drug dealing, civil-rights related murders, murder of a Federal officer, and acts classified as terrorism.
The Waco fire burned up 86 members at the compound of the Branch Davidians (including 24 children, 17 of whom were younger than age 10), and has kept eight survivors rotting in prison ever since, serving long sentences denounced by the jury that heard the evidence. (Eagle Forums)

Supposedly, Waco was the inspiration for the OK City Bombing; according to the media and the Clintons, but to me, these are separate events with completely different players. What the OK City bombing did was to perpetuate the notion that began with Ruby Ridge and Waco; that people who believe in God, who entertain conspiracy theories about our government – deserve not only to be watched, but deserve our scorn.
Senate hearings were held with the usual pro government results. Senator’s Orrin Hatch and Joe Biden concluded that the officers that harassed and caused the deaths of these 80 or so Davidians (including women and young children) were not guilty. The supervisors were praised for their service to our country, promoted, given a pay raise, and sent on vacation, while the grieving families of the dead victims were trying to make funeral arrangements.
Guns at Waco: stacked neatly against the wall among burned ruins; not cocked in the charred hands of the dead women and children
The message sent from this 1960′s war protestor, anti American cultured administration was clear: Religious groups, and lawful gun owners, were now put on the endangered species list.(Rick Biesada, Federal Observer)
We saw this fairly recently where hundreds of children were taken from their mothers, because they belonged to a “West Texas polygamy” group – a group the press calls The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
David Koresh, as you may recall, was also accused of child molestation, and so was Warren Jeffs. It’s a case of damage control when they’re reaching for reasons to go in and nuke families, small children and mothers breastfeeding infants. They’d rather have you believe they’ve stockpiled weapons, and have a veritable arsenal at their disposal, but the evidence afterwards shows that was hardly the case.
There is a frightening pattern of behavior here.

Vicki and Sammy Weaver, along with Sammy’s dog that he’d raised from a puppy, died at Ruby Ridge in Idaho in 1993, as the result of same type of sloppy government work. They put pressure on Randy Weaver to become a snitch on the Aryan Nation and when he refused, they quickly ratcheted up this pressure to a frenzied pitch until there were military vehicles and 400 guys in camouflage gear spying on their little cabin in the mountains. While the media reported that they lived in a ‘compound’, they had a little place where the government agents were able to come within 15 feet of the house.

The complaints about people who have religion and own guns, or in some cases, are gun dealers, is that they ‘stockpile weapons’. But a gun dealer sells guns, and what one person might fearfullly call a ‘stockpile of weapons’, another person would call ‘inventory’ for his business.
Religion and guns are to be feared, apparently – instead of just left alone. Randy Weaver was a decorated soldier who was approached to spy on the Aryan Nation. Because he refused, they set him and his young family up, but the situation spiraled out of control and a young boy, his dog and his mother ended up dead.
What amazes me is the far-out ideology of leftists like Joe Biden; I find it horrifying that someone like Biden is Obama’s veep choice, as if Obama himself isn’t frightening enough.
Rick at the Federal Observer:
[Biden] is a political stooge who’s career almost ended over plagiarism when he ran for the presidency in 1987.
But political stooges are running amock these days, as the plagiarized speeches of Barack Obama from Malcolm X and David Axelrod clients have gone unnoticed.
You have to wonder why Biden wasn’t vocal about the violent deaths of the Branch Davidian women, or the violent murder of Vicki Weaver at Ruby Ridge, shot by the reptilian FBI sniper, Lon Horiuchi, for merely cradling an infant child in her arms. Instead, Biden and Senator Orrin Hatch, covered up these crimes and engaged in homicidal hypocrisy.
I suppose Biden’s greatest moment came as he chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee, and presided over the appointment of Uncle Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court over allegations of Thomas’s proclivity for pornographic movies, and placing pubic hairs on the top of soda pop cans, emulating a court jester.
Joe Biden, why would we like to see him as the number two executive of the United States?
He, just like Obama, George Bush, and John McCain, are traitors to the United States Constitution as they discriminate against American citizens.
Biden voted Yes on allowing illegal aliens to participate in social security.
He Voted NO on declaring English the official language of the U.S. Government.
Biden voted Yes on establishing a guest worker program and voted Yes on giving guest workers a path to citizenship.
Joe Biden voted NO on limiting welfare for immigrants.
This guy, like Obama, is anti American… but he is also greedy.
This is what brings us to the selection of his vice presidency.
Biden, who had under gone two brain surgery operations, still remembers how to scheme. He wants to insure himself a golden parachute retirement package for all of those years of covering up the dirt that Barack Obama claims that our country is guilty of. the Federal Observer

This is the video I watched. It’s quite long; but it sure is interesting. My heart goes out to to the surviving Weavers and the memories they have to live with.
As a kid, my dad took us out to visit a guy who was a gun dealer who was being stalked by the feds. He was just a gun dealer, with old-fashioned values and a nice wife, and sweet little kids.
And they would get shot at by the FBI as they went from the house to the barn, and they had dogs tied up outside in order to alert them if someone got too close.
This stuff is no joke; it’s for real.
