At Sunday evening´s memorial service for the 26 innocent Newtown shooting victims, President Obama told a tearful crowd: "In the coming weeks, I will use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens--from law enforcement to mental health professionals to parents and educators--in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this." Turns out "whatever power this office holds" is just the ability to tell Joe "BFD" Biden to come up with some ideas by late next month.
Handing to job off to Biden is a delaying tactic. BO knows no serious gun control will take place until there are 5 liberal/left judges on the Supreme Court. When that happens, owning a gun will be impossible.
If anyone who listened to Obama´s news conference yesterday believed that a word he uttered was sincerely uttered, they are delusional. There was not a word out of his mouth that wasn´t calculated and manipulative, but I must admit that it was a brilliant exhibit of Alinsky´s Rules for Radicals. It had to be admired for it´s devious manipulation of minds through words. Unfortunately, we already know that a majority of the American people either don´t see it or don´t care. The next four years will not bring America to a happy place, but a place with trillions more in debt, more job loss and incidently some form of gun legislation to no significant happy result on that either. It is with sadness that I write this.
Putting Biden in charge of this is like putting Elmer Fudd in charge of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, both totally unqualified for anything and only good for a laugh. But then, that´s the entire obama administration in a nutshell.
It was the words "Task Force" that caught my attention - you know the group that will be stronger than our present military. Texas is already beginning to arm teachers - but then Texas is usually "right". That school is too far away from sheriff´s officers to be able to take care of a shooter.
The selection of Mr. Biden provides distraction and a certain gruesome "entertainment". Mr. Biden will be high profile, nonsensical, and insulting to honest Citizens while ignoring topics such as the government-sponsored murder program called "Operation Fast and Furious". The real work of continuing the destruction of the Constitution will occur in private meetings. If Mr. Obama´s handlers feel confident of their strategy they may try to accomplish their work by "Executive Orders", continuing the process of subverting the legislative process. The America-haters/America-wreckers are zealous yet patient as they go about their work.
Another ´´smart´´ move by the Chief-Money-Launderer´´...hand the gun issue off to a loose cannon!...LOL!!! that´s what a communist organizer goes! YEAH!!!!! Sheeeeesh, another 4 YEARS of this crappola!
Those who think the Biden move is just another slow-death-by-blue-ribbon-commission should think again. The point of giving it to Biden is to come up with the most far out ideas possible. Some of those will be implemented just because they´re "worth a try." Then scumbama can pick and choose among the remainder and look like he moved to the middle. Conservatives keep talking about the Alinsky playbook, but all too obviously they don´t have a clue. This is what scumbama does, people!
Let´s pass a law that says it´s illegal to steal your mother´s legally acquired firearms. Then, let´s pass a law that says it is illegal to shoot your mother in the face (with her gun! (how ironic!)) and also illegal to shoot your way into a school and kill 5 more adults and 20 little kids. That should stop the madness...we just need another set of new laws.
--What?? Those laws are already on the books?? Uh--0h! Never mind!
Like most dictators, NØbama doesn´t want any blood on his own hands.
This way, when Congress passes a bunch of feel-good knee-jerk anti-gun laws, crazy Uncle Joe can be the face of that enforcement.
Of course, the gun law militia that NØbama will form, made up of former La Raza and New Black Panther thugs, will be more than happy to do the dirty work of actually enforcing those laws.
When 25 or so Brown Shirts, wearing the best body armor and carrying the best military grade weaponry that our tax dollars can buy crashes through your front door and holds your wife and kids at gun point while giving you exactly one minute to turn over every illegal weapon that you have OR ELSE, remember that elections have consequences.
And, as another poster pointed out, all it will take is one conservative Supreme Court justice to be replaced to assure that every bit of this will be ´´Constitutional´´.
Yes. Handing the job off to Mensa Joe means the biggest idiot in Washington is going to handle a committee with "everything on the table" (I hate that phrase). First clue: A committee will take months, the MSM will lose interest, a few curtailments on clip sizes will happen, then back to normal. The gun manufacturers will cosmetically redesign the popular AR15 to look more like a deer rifle and all will be cool.
Biden is known as one of the most anti-gun politicians in D.C. They will probably pack this task force with other anti-gun politicians and advocates, with spots for one or two RINOS to give the task force some political cover, but if they do that, and concentrate on banning semi-automatic rifles and handguns, they will run into opposition from at least half of the country.
You may have noticed over these past 2,501 days that Barack Obama likes to give speeches, sometimes two or more a day. It´s better than Oval Office work. And yesterday the poor guy gave a particularly revealing one. He´s so desperate now that he modestly likened ObamaCare to the suffrage struggle and civil rights. [Snip] But here´s the largest challenge for Obama´s ObamaCare: He must ensure 40% of all enrollees are under 35 and willing to pay huge premiums for coverage they really don´t need. In the scaled eyes of our nation´s community organizer, that´s a kind of civic patriotism.
As everyone knows, California is the la-de-dah, laid-back land of liberalism that´s been Barack Obama´s political ATM for six years. Hollywood stars have loved him, fronted multi-multi-million-dollar fundraisers for him. The most populous state (home to 12 of every 100 Americans) has a Democrat governor again, two female Democrat senators and a Democrat super-majority in the state legislature that has yet to find a problem it didn´t want government making worse at great cost. In presidential politics California has been trending Democratic since 1992. [Snip] Now comes a stunning new poll revealing Obama’s California base has fallen out of love.
Never let a crisis -- or tragedy -- go to waste. So, here we are now with a weakened ObamaNation building an organizing event around the awfulness in Newtown, where a 22-year-old nut-job killed 20 innocent youngsters and six adult caretakers. No horrified parent or adult watching Connecticut a year ago needs reminding of what a national gut-kick that was. President Obama, of course, went to Newtown to utter another empty vow.
So, Barack Hussein Obama can tell where Americans are from just by looking at their faces. Imagine if he also knew their funny foreign names or detected defective English. How would Obama react if someone determined his birthplace by looking at that face of his? And what evil or good dreams lurk within that obviously wily Chicagoan´s mind. You didn´t see much about this Obama statement in the mainstream media last week. With the ObamaCare disaster all cleaned up, its website humming perfectly and the U.S. economy now roaring strongly, Obama lit out for West Coast fundraising.
According to the Obama White House, the first family consumed a Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, honey-baked ham, cornbread stuffing, oyster stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, greens, green bean casserole, dinner rolls and macaroni and cheese. Then, the family washed all that down with nine kinds of pies: huckleberry, pecan, sweet potato, peach, apple, pumpkin, banana cream, coconut cream and chocolate cream. For years now First Lady Michelle Obama has been pushing her program called "Let´s Move!" for more exercise and better foods. But Gallup reports Americans prefer “Let’s Eat!”
Hello, I’m Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. As we celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday, it’s important for us all to reflect on our many blessings. Family and friends immediately come to mind. But there are many Americans who will not be able to celebrate this holiday season at their home. Some are serving our nation overseas, thousands of miles away. And in their world, the creature comforts you and I take for granted -- things like running water and electricity -- are considered luxuries.
President Obama's weekly remarks: Hi, everybody. On behalf of all the Obamas — Michelle, Malia, Sasha, Bo, and the newest member of our family, Sunny — I want to wish you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. We’ll be spending today just like many of you — sitting down with family and friends to eat some good food, tell stories, watch a little football and. most importantly, count our blessings. And as Americans, we have so much to be thankful for.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
