Gun Lovers Freak Over
Obama’s Executive Actions

Daily Beast, by Adam Winkler

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/20/2013 8:37:35 AM

As our first national Gun Appreciation Day arrives (isn’t every day in America Gun Appreciation Day?), it’s worth a closer look at the constitutional arguments made by conservative opponents of President Obama’s gun-control proposals. Listen closely to the predictable fulminations against President Obama’s recent moves to reduce gun violence, in part through executive action. Conservative blogs and Fox News have been filled with indignant protests over Obama’s “abuse of power” and the manifestation of “tyranny” by the “power-grabbing” president. Sen. Rand Paul went on the Christian Broadcast Network to accuse Obama of acting like a “king or monarch.”

Comments:
When you read this you should know that this guy is a ´constitutional law´ professor at UCLA. He appears to be as qualified as 0bama. s/o It really disturbs me that we have morons like this teaching at the universities. We are doomed.

I love Life, not guns.

Dear Adam, I hate to break this to you, but you are a man in name only.

What a pathetic little worm you would be if the strands of your latte-sipping, self-esteem dripping civilization were stripped away. This country never would have had a chance if the mindset of this metro-sexual with sand in his hoohoo had prominence back then. Adam, you make me sick, now run away and go play with your other pretend-men.

We attended the Pro-2nd Amendment rally in Htfd, CT yesterday and we didn´t see anyone ´freaking out´. We did see lots of nice gun owners, but not one of them was ´loving´ on their gun. In fact, the only people we´ve noticed ´freaking out´ for the last month is DUHmocrats who´s answer to Newtown is to punish law abiding citizens and give more lenient sentences to criminals, who get to keep their ILLEGAL guns, of course. Here in CT, Malloy has even fast-tracked the criminals out of prison, overturning the jury´s rule and the court´s sentences. Even decent folks cannot get a job here b/c the DUHmocrat run state has taxed business out of the state, so Malloy´s boys, (the fast-tracked criminals) get out and go right back to burglary, rape and murder of CT citizens, after they´ve obtained another ILLEGAL gun, of course. Think we´ll buy our next additions on the black market so we can breath easier knowing that the CT goobermint will never confiscate those./s/, or maybe not

The Executive Orders are a nothing burger, true. But the Plantation Party´s attempt to take away our God given right to defend our families is very much a fact. Even a willfully ignorant peddler of Beltway conventional wisdom can see it, if he were to open his eyes and climb out of Dear Leader´s lap for a moment. The Plantation Party wants an impotent populace. They want hungry mouths, and childlike invalids who live hand to mouth, government check to government check. The Plantation party is suspicious of progress, of liberty, of self-reliance because it threatens their grip on our souls.

I´ve read Winkler´s book and discussed it with him in person. He´s not a bad guy and is firmly of the belief that the Second Amendment (post-Heller) protects the individual RKBA. He is a flaming liberal metrosexual, however, and IMO wishes that it didn´t.

His main point is that 2A isn´t absolute and certain restrictions are permitted. History supports that view, like it or not. Where we really got into it was over the issue of a partial or complete gun ban. We agreed that it was unconstitutionally impermissible, but I cited Feinstein and a few others in support of my belief that they´re going to try. Because eventually they are.

It was a lively meeting, and the liberal lawyers in the room kept their mouths shut. They were "outgunned."

Michael Savage had something interesting to say the other night. He mentioned that the Leftist Press and the Demonrat Party is ignoring the Leftists who own guns. He pointed out that many gays own guns for protection, as do Leftist feminists. They, of course, do not want to give up their "protection".

Something to think about.

And who gave Adam Winkler the right to speak? The government should shut him up. I don´t think he should not be entitled to his 1st Amendment rights if he thinks I´m not entitled to my 2d Amendment rights.

"You may be unhappy that he won the election, but that doesn´t take away the fact that he is the elected president and has the legal right to issue executive orders."

Even if they´re tyrannical and unconstitutional? Pull your head out.

Re: #11 - There is no debating the 2nd amendment. What #11 is espousing is a national bloodbath. His ilk will not rest until they impose the control they seek, contrary to the Constitution. His ilk fully understands they will be resisted. Their aim is to marginalize, with their "soothing" progressive psuedo-sensitivity, the lawful gun owners and the core Americans who believe in the inherent right of self defense - and not against Bambi, either. The progressive agenda seeks to disarm; there is no debating this. Traditional American conservatives will resist with force, when necessary - there is no debating this either. The #11 mentality does not care and would see bloodshed to accomplish their long term progressive aim to have all conservatives be as fish in a barrel.

I´ve been on this site since week 1, if not day 1 and I´ve never seen such tolerance for such a dangerously subversive set of bought-and-paid-for commentary from a single, single-issue poster.

It is intolerant and racist to take guns for protection away from guns owned by gays and black law abiding citizens who live in high crime black neighbourhoods.

It is hypocritical to arm the presidents security and put armed guards in his children´s school.

Crime rates will go up when citizens are unable to protect themselves.

Most of these latest executive orders are well within the power of the POTUS and mostly completely irrelevant.

At the end of the article, the author would be well advised to look up and read the almost totally ignored Tenth Amendment.

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people."

So, if there is not a specific delegation of a power to the United States (Feds) written into the Constitution, then the power REMAINS with the States. ALL gun regulations and laws are not part of the Constitution, and therefore are subject to State laws. Ultimately, the resurection of the much ignored 10th Amendment needs to be taken seriously now days as the Feds consistently overreach.

Ditto #16 and #19.

Exactly. There were a number of one-note posters on here when Clinton was POTUS, too.

In response to #11, the weak-minded refuse to see we are right now transitioning out of the Talking stage and into the Action stage of a civil conflict. Why should we continue to talk? Why should I worry about my ugly comment when I have received a thousand-fold in return for no good reason? A lot of people out here are like trees that bend mightily in the wind, but when the wind blows long enough, they will snap, one by one.

And all the talk and all the insincere expressions of reasonable discourse will slam into the cold, hard wall of Reality.

Facebook removes my post about
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy
Fox News, by Todd Starnes    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 9:45:44 PM     Post Reply
Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

Townhall, by Guy Benson    Original Article

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

   

 



 
Fox News Poll: 49 percent think White

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
