  • Firearm Rights Suspension: Backed by George Soros, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham suspended public firearm rights in Albuquerque for 30 days, sparking constitutional concerns.
  • Hidden Soros Agenda: Governor Grisham and other Governors might covertly advance a Marxist agenda to dismantle Americans’ gun rights.
  • Avoiding Real Issues: Grisham is accused of shifting blame from violent crime and police issues to law-abiding citizens’ gun ownership, questioning her true intentions.

Soros-backed high-ranking State, County, and Municipal officials do not initiate unconscionable, unconstitutional actions out of the blue. And that is no less true of New Mexico’s present Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham.

This pretentious, sanctimonious political leader of New Mexico is a Soros-backed toady.

As the New York Post reported on September 9, 2023,

“New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, whose campaign was backed by left-wing billionaire George Soros, riled up conservatives and gun owners after she issued an emergency order suspending the right to carry firearms in public in Albuquerque and the surrounding county for at least 30 days.”

See also the news accounts from local New Mexico newspapers, the Pinon Post, and “Santa Fe New Mexican,” and the article posted by the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA).

Do Americans honestly believe that Michelle Lujan Grisham’s unconscionable, unconstitutional actions, suspending the exercise of the fundamental, natural law right of armed self-defense in numerous jurisdictions across New Mexico, springs from a true public safety concern and that the Public Health Order is really just temporary?

Are Americans that naïve?

Governor Michelle Grisham in New Mexico, along with Governors Kathy Hochul in New York & Gavin Newsome in California, & several other Governors across the landscape of America, are “moles.”

They are waiting to spring into action when called upon by their secretive “Case Officers,” aka Contributors, to do so, and with the U.S. Supreme Court rulings, they have begun to spring into action—some earlier, some later.

But they are all intent on assuaging the concerns of their Marxist benefactors and fully adhering to the Marxist agenda.

Governors invoke different strategies, as required, given the nuances of each State, but all are directed to the same outcome: destruction of the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

And, for those Americans who think their State is immune from the coming Soros-initiated and inspired Marxist conflagration, think again.

States like New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado were once reliably “Red States.” That was true once, but no longer. Soros and other powerful Marxists and their organizations have seen to that. And these insolent, arrogant characters intend “to turn” many other “Red States,” “Blue.”

Grisham’s Strategy For Defeating The Right Of Americans To Keep And Bear Arms In New Mexico.

While the news media has focused attention on the bizarre and dangerous gambit of the Governor, little to no attention is focused on why this is. What brought this on?

What motivated this Soros-flunky to act in the bold and brazen way she did?

Grisham would like the public to believe her actions stem from what she, along with sympathetic voices in the Press, referred to as an “epidemic of gun violence” rampaging across the State.

But, if this is true, it can only mean that a wave of criminal violence besets New Mexico. And that is true enough. But, given that fact, why issue an emergency Public Health Order targeting innocent citizens residing in New Mexico?

Why not mobilize the police across the State and root out criminal violence, or, if need be, call out the State militia to deal head-on and strenuously with crime and criminals and lunatics rampaging through the State?

If the extent and intensity of violent crime caused by a myriad of psychopaths and drug cartels wielding guns across New Mexico is that great, then zero in on that issue and leave average, law-abiding, rational, responsible American gun owners who reside in New Mexico alone.

But Grisham won’t do that. She won’t do that because it is these average Americans in New Mexico that she wishes to target, hundreds of thousands of them.

What is going on here?

The answer or a major part of the answer is found in a story we uncovered (of all places) on the leftist website NPR.

Note: the April 14, 2023 article mentions Albuquerque and it is Albuquerque that bears the brunt of the impact of Grisham’s September 2023 “Public Health Order.” Is this just coincidence? We don’t think so.

The NPR article proceeds with this:

“Home to about 2.1 million people, New Mexico has one of the highest rates of police killings per capita in the country.

Last year, 32 people — around 15 people per million — were killed by police in the state, . . . .

New Mexico is second to Wyoming, with a population of about 581,000, where around 17 people per million were killed by police. . . .

‘We know that commonsense policies like requiring de-escalation and a high standard for when to use force keep all of us safer,’ Jones said.

Gun Ownership And Culture Play A Factor

As of 2021, there were 122,968 federally registered firearms in the state, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The data is collected under the National Firearms Act, but this reflects only a subsection of weapons.

Using data from the Rand Corp., CBS News reported that roughly 46% of adults in New Mexico had at least one gun at home in 2021. The state ranked 21st in a list of states and gun ownership. Texas, with more than 1 million gun licenses and roughly 46% of adults reporting they live in a home with guns, ranked first.

Most of New Mexico ‘is rural, people rely on self-protection’, and there’s more of a culture of hunting compared to the rest of the country, so high gun ownership makes sense, said Maryam Ahranjani, a law professor at the University of New Mexico. . . .

For many years, the Albuquerque Police Department, the law enforcement agency in the state’s largest city, has had difficulties with its officers’ use-of-force. . . .

A review of Albuquerque Police Department shootings between 2018 and 2022 showed that deadly force was used when attempting to apprehend violent suspects, when citizens were experiencing a mental health episode, or when people were acting badly while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the city’s police chief said in November.”

The NPR article suggests the problem in New Mexico is two-fold: Inadequate police training (which may or may not be true), and New Mexico’s high rate of violent crime, which is true and very well-documented.

Assuming for purposes of argument that NPR is correct and a problem does exist with too many “trigger-happy police officers” in New Mexico, and especially in Albuquerque, then the Governor should do something concrete about improving police training.

And since New Mexico is the second most crime-ridden State in the Country, which FBI Statistics do bear out, the Governor should crack down on incidents of violent crime. See the articles in the Pinon Post and in “Inside Sources.

Responding strenuously to the latter (raging violent crime) would resolve any perceived problem with the former (shootings by police done in defense of their own life and well-being and that of innocent others when apprehending dangerous psychopaths and criminal lunatics).

But Grisham is doing nothing to deal effectively and strenuously with either. And neither goal is achieved. Neither goal can be achieved. Neither goal is meant to be achieved.

Instead of dealing with crime, Grisham pretends the problem rests with “guns.”

And, since most of those guns fall within the control of the non-violent, ordinary citizen, she ignores the crime and targets the citizen. But that was her desire all along. For, it isn’t the violent crime that concerns her. It is and always was “the armed citizen” that troubles both her and the other Marxist Governors.

Getting rid of guns in the hands of tens of millions of average, responsible, rational, law-abiding citizens serves to avoid the real problem any Tyrant faces—the armed citizenry. For, the exercise of the natural law right to armed self-defense serves as the ultimate effective deterrent to a Ravaging Tyrant.

So, of course, Grisham’s illegal Public Health Order exempts police from carrying firearms in public, and of course, there is nothing in the Order that so much as suggests an attempt to tackle violent crime.

Such crime is, therefore, permitted to go unchecked and, in fact, to flourish in New Mexico.

After releasing her “Public Health Order,” Michelle Lujan Grisham smugly and disingenuously asserted, as reported by The New York Times in an article published on September 9, 2023, that NM wholeheartedly approves of Grisham’s actions,

“‘I welcome the debate and the fight about making New Mexicans safer’. . . . ‘We’ll make adjustments, and I intend to make Albuquerque the safest place in America, . . . . ‘It’s a tall order, and I am on it.’”

Governor Grisham is on nothing but her high horse. And, if it is a debate that the Governor truly wants, then fine, let’s have at it.

But let the public, the State Legislature, and the Governor’s Office debate “making New Mexico safer” before, not after, executing an order that merely presumes what must be proved and that would inevitably be proved false, even nonsensical——namely that guns in the hands of average, responsible, rational, law-abiding American citizens living in New Mexico are the root cause of both New Mexico’s rampaging criminal violence and New Mexico’s “trigger-happy cops.”

Is this Soros-backed Marxist Governor defiantly, ardently daring the armed citizenry to respond to her shameless, brash Order through open armed revolt? It sure looks like it.

If so, she will come to rue what she has so cavalierly initiated and incited.
