Introduction by Elias Alias, editor:
Below you will find two letters taken from a U.S. Senator’s official government website. One letter is to Fox News network owner Ruppert Murdock, and the other is to Brian France of NASCAR.
Forty years ago I bought a book written by Dr. Carl G. Jung, one of the two top psychiatrists in the early Twentieth Century, and a major detractor of the Freudian school of psychiatric thought. The book is entitled “Synchronicity”. 
Today my computer is clogged with a pile of remarkable news stories which give me cause to reflect on the phenomenon of synchronicity, about how sometimes seemingly un-coordinated things happen in conjunction with other things in a way which baffles the mind as to how such synchronicity could put seemingly unrelated acts together to forge a new circumstance or situation.
I submit that it is *synchronized coincidence* that Oath Keepers has agreed to sponsor NASCAR driver Jeffrey Earnhardt in a NASCAR Sprint Series race at Dover, Delaware, on June 01, 2013 – and just two days after we announced that deal to our membership we now learn that the National Rifle Association (NRA) has made a deal to sponsor an annual NASCAR Sprint Series race in Texas.
Far out! What timing, eh? The Constitution’s Oath and the Second Amendment of that Constitution are both being tied to a massive American sports audience by two contemporaneous deals with NASCAR. But there is more. Fox News itself is also involved by agreeing to broadcast the NRA 500 from Texas today. Additionally, ESPN will broadcast the Dover race in June in which Jeffrey Earnhardt will drive his Number 79 Mustang with the Oath Keepers message all over the car.
This may be interpreted any way one wishes, and the statist-minded gun-control lobby is already having hissy-fits about the very idea of uniting the 2nd Amendment, the Constitution’s Oath, and a favorite American pass-time sport called NASCAR racing – and pumping that triptych in blazing technicolor out to a excitable audience of millions. But for my buck, I’m calling it “synchronicity” in honor of Dr. Jung.
Jeffrey Earnhardt has a NASCAR pedigree a mile long. This is a great development for America, for the Constitution, for our traditional values as a free people. It is packaged in red, white, and blue by the pure spirit of American motor racing. NASCAR fans love their guns, love their Constitution, and love their racing heroes on the NASCAR circuit. Here is Number 79 for Oath Keepers, which Jeffrey will drive in the June 01, 2013 race at Dover, Delaware.
Jeffrey Earnhardt’s statement regarding Oath Keepers: “Oath Keepers are those who stepped forward, raised their hand and are willing to die to protect and defend our Constitution; that means everything to me and I’m honored to be a part of this.”
Of course the Gun Control Lobby’s damage control machine is already being trotted out by the powers that be, and our villain in this story is a mentally-deficient Senator from Connecticut….
If you’re an elected official working hand-in-hand with the Federal government’s gun grab fiasco and you learn that NASCAR has made a deal with the National Rifle Association for sponsorship of the “NRA 500″ in Texas, it could be disquieting to say the least. That the news struck the Red Coat Senator Murphy of Connecticut right in the center of his largest raw nerve is apparent, because he has come totally unglued. In an authoritarian gasp of desperation-driven insanity he has taken it upon himself to tell Fox News what Fox News should not broadcast – like, as in, a NASCAR 500 race in Texas! The NASCAR race in Texas is the NRA 500.
Senator Murphy would now politicize motor-car racing! At five million members, the NRA is mis-characterized by Murphy as “extremist”. As arguably the most popular sporting program in America, NASCAR is more American Pie than General Motors, (especially now that GM has off-shored seventy percent of its manufacturing base out of America and into communist China – yes, you got that right – seventy percent of GM’s car manufacturing is now made outside the USA, with 11 manufacturing plants now operating in the world’s largest communist nation, China). Don’t believe me? Would you believe the head of General Motors himself then? Watch this -
So what does it all mean and why are Senator Murphy’s panties in a wad?
NASCAR made a sweet deal with the National Rifle Association to sponsor the Texas annual “500″ race. Fox News will broadcast the race today (Saturday, April 13, 2013). Suddenly the NRA, NASCAR, and Fox News are going to present an all-American piece of patriotic pastry – American Pie if you will – to a viewing audience of millions of Americans. Moreover, Oath Keepers is sponsoring one of the most famous names in the NASCAR racing cirtuit, Jeffrey Earnhardt, who will drive his Number 79 racecar on June 01, 2013, with our organization’s mission well represented on the car. ESPN will televise that race, and Oath Keepers will achieve millions of exposures to middle-class America – the NASCAR fan base. The NRA, NASCAR, and Oath Keepers are now on the same track for supporting and defending the Constitution! I call that:
The Progressives who have posed as Democrats to work their way inside seats of governmental power are horrified at the thought of the NRA identifying with NASCAR, for both of those orgs carry huge voting blocs of people who work for a living, denounce socialism, want to keep the “America” in America, will honor our nation’s sovereignty, and will fight to keep this great country as the home for brave, free, law-abiding, tax-paying hardworking, good-hearted honorable people who will keep and bear arms against government tyranny and who love to experience fine race cars.
But Senator Murphy, in his opposition to the Constitution, can’t stand it. He has written to NASCAR and he has written to the owner of Fox News. He wants to dictate what Fox News should broadcast and he wants to tell NASCAR who it can make deals with. All of that wasted energy is aimed at violating the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Press Release of Senator Murphy
MURPHY CALLS ON MURDOCH, FOX TO CANCEL COVERAGE OF NRA 500
Thursday, April 11, 2013
WASHINGTON—U.S. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) today sent a letter to Rupert Murdoch, chairman and CEO of News Corporation, urging him not to broadcast the NASCAR NRA 500 race on Fox Sports. Fox Sports, which is owned by News Corporation, plans to air the race next week as a part of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
Last month, Murphy sent a letter to NASCAR CEO Brian France to call on him to reconsider his decision to sanction the race. While thanking Mr. France for his generous personal contributions to the Newtown community, Murphy requested that NASCAR refrain from entering the current debate over gun reform in Congress and prevent the NRA from having the title role in the April 13th race.
“The horror that unfolded on December 14th at Sandy Hook Elementary School has sparked a national conversation about the adequacy of our gun laws,” Murphy wrote to Murdoch. “Considering your support of sane gun control measures and the extreme nature of the NRA, I urge you to not broadcast this race on April 13th. Inserting Fox Sports in this debate at this critical time will give credence to an extreme organization that is opposed to reasonable policies to stem gun violence.”
Full text of Murphy’s letter:
April 11, 2013
Mr. Rupert Murdoch
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
1211 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10036
Dear Mr. Murdoch:
I write today to urge you to not broadcast NASCAR’s NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on April 13th. This race, which is being sponsored by the National Rifle Association (NRA), is going to take place during the Senate’s consideration of legislation to reduce gun violence. The race not only brings national attention to an organization that has been the face of one side of this heated debate, it also features the live shooting of guns at the end of the race. This celebration of guns is inappropriate in the immediate wake of the Newtown massacre. But most importantly, broadcasting this race, which will highlight the NRA and its radical agenda during this time, sends a harmful signal to the families affected by gun violence, as well as the millions of Americans who support sensible gun control measures and enjoy your sports programming.
The horror that unfolded on December 14th at Sandy Hook Elementary School has sparked a national conversation about the adequacy of our gun laws. You, News Corporation and its subsidiaries, including Fox News, should contribute and continue to cover this discussion. Given that you have been outspoken in your support of gun reform, it is the height of irony that some would perceive that your company would now essentially endorse the NRA’s extreme position against such laws by broadcasting this event.
Shortly after the tragedy in Newtown, you called on policymakers and the President to strengthen our gun laws, asking, “when will politicians find courage to ban automatic weapons?” This valid question will be answered when the Senate considers major reforms to our gun laws in early to mid-April. As a senator, I can tell you that many of us possess the courage, and will strongly advocate for sensible gun reforms to take assault weapons and high-capacity magazines off our streets and require all gun purchasers to submit for a background check.
You also challenged President Obama to show bold leadership on this issue after he addressed the nation. I believe that the President has shown incredible leadership since the tragedy by trying to help our country, my state, and the community of Newtown heal in the wake of this terrible event. I would like to make a similar challenge to you. You should play a constructive role in our national dialogue by refraining from broadcasting the NRA 500. By airing this race you will be strengthening the brand of a radical organization that is currently standing in the way of meaningful progress on this issue. Today’s NRA bears little resemblance to the one of its founding. It stokes fear and perpetuates a perverse interpretation of the Second Amendment in order to sell more guns and fuel larger donations from gun manufacturers. After the events of Newtown, Aurora, Oak Creek, and so many other senseless tragedies, the NRA continues to say that the only solution to gun violence is more guns. It even disavows common sense measures, like universal background checks for gun purchases – a policy that enjoys the support of 74 percent of its members and that it advocated for in 1999.
Considering your support of sane gun control measures and the extreme nature of the NRA, I urge you to not broadcast this race on April 13th. Inserting Fox Sports in this debate at this critical time will give credence to an extreme organization that is opposed to reasonable policies to stem gun violence. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Not content with merely begging Fox Sports to drop coverage of the NRA 500, the distraught Senator has also written to NASCAR to advise NASCAR to drop relations with the NRA. What a busy little guy, eh? Here is his press release about his letter to NASCAR – (the actual letter is below) -
Press Release of Senator Murphy
MURPHY URGES NASCAR TO REVERSE DECISION TO NAME NEW RACE NRA 500
Murphy: NASCAR should stay out of political fight over gun violence
Contact: Ben Marter (Murphy): 202-228-9606
Thursday, March 7, 2013
WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) today sent a letter to Brian France, chairman and CEO of the National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR), urging him to reconsider a financial agreement to make the National Rifle Association (NRA) the title sponsor of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on April 13th—the NRA 500.
“After the horrific mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, which claimed the lives of 20 children and six educators, the NRA has taken an unprecedented extreme position in the debate over the proper response to this tragedy, placing themselves at odds with the overwhelming majority of the American people, and even their own members,” Murphy wrote. “Given the emotional state of the national conversation, I believe it would be imprudent for NASCAR to step into such a heated political debate and take sides in this debate by allowing the NRA the title role in the race.”
Full text of Senator Murphy’s letter:
March 7, 2013
Chairman and CEO
P.O. Box 2875
Daytona Beach, FL 32120
Dear Mr. France,
On Monday, it was reported that NASCAR and the Texas Motor Speedway had just completed a deal to make the National Rifle Association (NRA) the title sponsor of a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on April 13th—the NRA 500. As a U.S Senator representing the community of Newtown, Connecticut, I write to you today to ask that you reconsider this decision.
After the horrific mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, which claimed the lives of 20 children and six educators, the NRA has taken an unprecedented extreme position in the debate over the proper response to this tragedy, placing themselves at odds with the overwhelming majority of the American people, and even their own members. Given the emotional state of the national conversation, I believe it would be imprudent for NASCAR to step into such a heated political debate and take sides in this debate by allowing the NRA the title role in the race.
NASCAR has a long history of supporting our troops, our children, and our communities, and your racing events attract fans from across Connecticut and the country. I also know how deep your own commitment to the Newtown community runs—your donation of $50,000 to Sandy Hook School Support Fund is the very example of NASCAR’s commitment to community. And less than two weeks ago, one of the cars at the Daytona 500 advertised a way to donate money for the Newtown community, and was dubbed #26 for the number of lives lost on December 14th.
But by giving the NRA sponsorship of a major NASCAR race, NASCAR has crossed a line – you have decided to put yourself in the middle of a political debate, and you have taken a side that stands in opposition to the wishes of so many Newtown families who support common sense gun reform. Whether or not this was your intention, your fans will infer from this sponsorship that NASCAR and the NRA are allies in the current legislative debate over gun violence. By announcing this new partnership at the very height of Congress’s deliberations over gun reform, NASCAR has inserted itself into a political debate that has nothing to do with the business of NASCAR. To me, this seems an unwise break with precedent.
This tragic event has led many individuals and organizations to re-evaluate their views towards guns. Millions of Americans, including responsible gun owners, have resolved that our nation must do more to protect our children and citizens from gun violence. Reasonable measures that are being considered in Washington have widespread support. Consider that 92 percent of Americans, 91 percent of gun owners and 74 percent of NRA members support proposals to require background checks for all gun purchases. Yet, instead of playing a constructive role in this debate, the Washington-based leadership of the NRA has become more radicalized. For example, in 1999, after the horrific shooting at Columbine High School, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre gave a full-throated endorsement of universal background checks. Yet, after Newtown, the NRA reversed their position, testifying recently before the Senate Judiciary Committee and the organization now opposes this proposal.
Furthermore, over the past two months my office has released a series of reports looking at the NRA, its sources of funding and its agenda on the state and federal levels. The findings may surprise you and make you reconsider their sponsorship. The NRA increasingly relies on support from the firearms industry, including manufacturers of military-style assault weapons that have been used at Newtown and other mass shootings. The NRA also pushes an extreme agenda in state capitols across our nation. Defying common sense the association has backed laws that allow gun owners to bring concealed weapons into bars, restaurants and sports stadiums. In possibly the most egregious example, the NRA supported an Indiana law that proscribed when an individual can use force, including deadly force, against a police officer.
NASCAR has historically been careful not to insert itself, and its hard-earned good reputation, into political and legislative fights. Why then, start now? Why take sides against the families of Newtown, Connecticut, by teaming up with the NRA in the middle of an intense legislative fight over gun laws?
In light of your extensive charitable work and generosity to the Newtown community, I hope that you will reconsider affiliating with the NRA at this time. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Christopher S. Murphy
United States Senator
So there we have it. Did someone say something about “Murphy’s Law”? Could our dear Senator have somehow misinterpreted that old public adage and got the idea that he himself *is* the law? I am going to calmly assert that Murphy’s Law is in full effect for the Gun-Control Lobby, and that Senator Murphy, like the fiasco created already by America’s greatest gun salesman in history, President Obama, has just “shot himself in the foot” by writing those letters. If you think so too, please spread the word about this and throw your good support to NASCAR, the NRA, and Oath Keepers and together we’ll get the message of the Oath and the Second Amendment out to the people.
