Gun maker sells assault rifle component engraved with ‘You Lie’ congressman’s quote

joewilsonfirearms Gun maker sells assault rifle component engraved with You Lie congressmans quoteThere’s something to be said for poorly timed remarks, but it’s another thing to display a flagrantly insensitive contempt for political realities.

Example one: Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC), who shouted “You lie!” during a speech by President Barack Obama. He’s become a hero to tea party activists for his outburst, even in spite of a voting record showing lock-step support of President George W. Bush’s least fiscally responsible policies.

With Congress and the media making much of the conflagration of guns and political speech in the wake of the horrific mass shooting in Arizona that killed six and left Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the head, it was almost inevitable someone would capitalize on the moment.

A guns retailer outside of Colombia, South Carolina has begun selling a lower receiver for the AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifle, a firearm commonly used by the US military, engraved with Wilson’s infamous words.

“Only 999 of these will be produced, get yours before they are gone!” the Palmetto State Armory declared.

The retailer’s online product page was apparently taken down after coverage from The Colombia Free Times. It was still available in Google’s web cache.

The paper also noted that while the company had no official endorsement from Rep. Wilson, a photograph of the congressman holding a firearm was also hosted on their website. That image was also removed, but similarly saved by Google.

The Free Times noted that Palmetto State Armory president Jamie McCallum was the designer of the firearm component. The photo of Wilson also apparently shows McCallum, with text that reads, “To my good friend Jamie McCallum, I appreciate your friendship. Best wishes, Joe Wilson.”

The loss of life is a tragic event and we should do our best to support those who are grieving.”

The timing for such a product was incredibly poor, especially with President Obama being invited to Charleston to mark the 150th anniversary of the firing on Fort Sumter.

The Battle of Fort Sumter began after Confederate forces, having attempted to starve Union troops out of their garrison, finally committed themselves to the violence that formally initiated the bloodiest period in American history.

Will Moredock, a columnist in Charleston, has publicly pleaded for President Obama to stay away from Charleston on April 12, arguing that it could prove to be a serious — if not fatal — mistake.

“I will be blunt: I think the president might be in danger if he came to this historically loaded city on that emotionally loaded date,” he wrote. “I am confident his security team could protect him from almost any eventuality, but I see no point in inviting an “incident” that would embarrass the state and haunt the city for years to come.”

Rep. Wilson shouted “You lie!” during President Obama’s state of the union address in 2009, reacting to a pledge that his health reform laws would not extend taxpayer dollars to cover illegal immigrants.

Despite the congressman’s outburst, the health reform laws explicitly prohibit illegal immigrants from joining insurance exchanges or qualifying for Medicaid.

Wilson was re-elected in 2010 with 54 percent of the votes in his district.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
