Obama says he´s ´determined
as ever´ for gun bill

Associated Press, by Nedra Pickler

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/8/2013 10:27:49 PM

HARTFORD, Conn. -- With time running out on the chance to pass gun control legislation, President Barack Obama on Monday warned Congress not to use delaying tactics against tighter regulations and told families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims that he´s "determined as ever" to honor their children with tougher laws. Obama´s gun control proposals have run into resistance on Capitol Hill, leaving their fate in doubt. Efforts by Senate Democrats to reach compromise with Republicans over expanding required federal background checks have yet to yield an agreement, and conservatives were promising to try

From the article:

"This is not about me. This is not about politics. This is about doing the right thing for all the families who are here who have been torn apart by gun violence," Obama said, his voice rising with emotion as he shook his finger in the air.

Let me help the uninformed or the inattentive with a translation from Obama English to Plain English:


Obama English: This is not about me.

Plain English: This is all about Me, the God-Emperor Barack Hussein Obama.


Obama English: This is not about politics.

Plain English: This is all about politics, this is nothing but politics, this is only about politics.


Obama English: This is about doing the right thing for all the families who are here who have been torn apart by gun violence,"

Plain English: This is not at all about doing the right thing for all the families who are here who have been torn apart by gun violence. This is all about Me, Me, Me and my desire to politically damage the Republicans, the National Rifle Association, honest American gun owners, and anyone who stands in My Way, for I am the God-Emperor Barack Hussein Obama and none shall resist Me."

Hey, Goober, it´s always about you demagoguing an issue and it´s always politics.

Our rights cannot be taken away by a two-bit, Communist, community agitator from Chicago. We don´t care how "determined" you are!!

We are a free people and the Constitution is the law of our land. You can kiss our American backsides!

This is one crisis he cannot afford to waste. What a pity if he doesn´t get his way. That this two faced clown should be the first to attempt to take our weapons only gives WTP an insight into his black soul. Our guns are ours for a reason you fraud from the unknown Attempt to take them at your own peril. We are wise to you, your lies, your plans, your evil attempts to bring down our great nation. YOU might think you are our government....but remember YOU WORK FOR US and your services can be terminated at any given time if enough of US have had more than we can stomach. Push us, stick your finger in our eye. But for each crime against this nation, you will pay the price Bet on it.

They cannot legally vote to impede our rights under the Constitution. I think the President needs to be considered for Impeachment and those proposing opposition to the Second Amendment need to be charged with being domestic enemies of the Constitution.

The complicit media is in the tank once again,trying over simplify these gun laws being about background checks,when they´re really more far reaching.They want a national database for every gun owner in this country,except for criminals.Nobody really knows where gangbangers get their guns and the government has no interest in finding out.

This is about putting scarlet letters on people´s heads as a form of ridicule and creating target groups for left wing activists to attack.

I´d much rather have a national database of people who are eligible to vote and only being able to vote once.

The WH gun running Fast & Furious was the seed for gun control. The mentally ill lone gun men sprouted the seed, then the drive-by media gave it some water. Now the demonrats are tending to it, all in the name of getting rid of that pesky 2nd Amendment so Barry´s civilian army can completely control the people.

"Determined as ever" as applied to the national debt, the deficit and unemployment translates from Barack-speak to actual English: "I´m determined to make the problem worse".

Fine print from the very end of the article:

"Gun control is divisive in Newtown, Conn., as in the rest of the country. Not all Sandy Hook families support gun control, and even those involved with the lobbying push organized by Sandy Hook Promise are not backing the assault weapons ban."

Gun Control is a very convenient platform with which to create an intrusive, controlling database that can be a powerful tool for political manipulation, social control, cowing down opposition and voter intimidation in the future. There solved the translation problem.

CT gun bill has NOT ONE thing that would have stopped Adam Lanza.
Had Lanza not shot himself, he would not have faced the death penalty as the same nitwits that just took away our second amendment rights abolished the death penalty only months before Sandy Hook! Never mind that THE PEOPLE were in favor of keeping the death penalty by 60% plus.

this is interesting psychologically. This is the first time I have seen the President acting like he gives a damn and is willing to work hard to get a piece of legislation passed. Even Obamacare was turned over to congress with presidential instruction to "just pass anything." Jobs, budget, terrorism, meh....whatever. I have a fundraiser to go to. Golf to play. Hoops to shoot. But here he is really trying. Am I being paranoid by wondering if it is because this is an attack on a constitutional right?

For what the families have suffered I am truly sorry -- BUT -- that does not mean MY right to bear arms should be stepped on......

The obama strategy of "never let a crisis go to waste" is playing itself out. He´s using the grief/stricken families as political pawns in his game of Me/Me/Me/Me......

WE the people can see the "won" losing his cool because someone said "NO" to him.....

Perhaps you should be worried about the little brat in North Korea throwing his stones around and do YOUR job, i.e. protect American interests. That would include South Korea. You do know where that is -- right?????

FTA, " They´re saying they´ll do everything they can to even prevent any votes on these provisions. They´re saying your opinion doesn´t matter. And that´s not right."

He has some audacity to make a statement like that with all the times he´s bypassed Congress with EO´s.

Why haven´t the Republicans paraded the families of the Benghazi deceased like Obama parades the families of the deceased children? Obama is a school bus chaser, that´s all he has-from the healthcare prop boy to Sandy Hook he knows the weak spot that stirs up Americans. He uses children as a shield and a shameless means to an end.

´ was checking out the commieblaster web site the other day. One entry explained how an American physicist was visiting Russia back in 1992. Someone told him, "we have a black KGB agent who is going to be the president of the United States soon". Savor that and keep it in mind and all the destructive actions Obama is taking against America makes perfect sense. Economy? Jobs? U.S. Debt? ha! fugit about it already: Comrade Bamboozler has other objectives in mind. Lenin disarmed his people as well.

I wish everyone would take a step back and observe.
America has always been the greatest country in the World.
Our Presidents represented us with dignity and decorum.
Now we have Obama running around the country like a chicken without a head, screaming at us like Rev. Wright at his pulpit.
I can think of a few other leaders of countries who worked themselves into frothing frenzies. He has to mezmorize the dumb masses.

The truth is Obama doesn´t want anyone he can´t control to possess firearms. He wants them in the hands of the government not a free people. Tyranny depends on defenseless patriots. He wants us to surrender the right to bear arms because he knows it will get very messy if he has to come get them.

It is all about him. Were it not, he would gather some statistics about gun violence and realize that the areas where the gun regulations are tightest are the same areas where gun violence is highest.

He is using one crazy person´s gun ownership as justification for confiscation, and make no mistake, that is where he wants to go. So do all liberals, actually believing that rules and laws stop gun violence.

I may be a bit of a simpleton but had there been a trained concealed weapon holder in Sandy Hook Elementary school the carnage would have been far less and many grieving parents would still have their child alive today. I do not understand why they aren´t angry enough to demand something as simple and positive as this. There will be another massacre somewhere soon - the no more 2nd amendment zealots will have to stage one more try at convincing you.

Obozo has a lot of gall to stand there and cry about how "everyone" or "the majority" of people, nation wide, really want these gun control measures. Well, what happened to the actual large majority of Americans the were and still are opposed to Obozocare? Got any answer for that?

This whole dog and pony show is a classic action of just what the founders warned about. This is a group of politicians attempting to create legislation by relying on people´s emotions instead of reasoned debate. Re-read your Federalist Papers. Of course, today´s modern "progressives" don´t have a clue what reasoned debate is. It´s all about emotion.

It´s not your imagination, #33. Our guns are the only thing standing between Dictator Soetoro and every other thing he wants to do to damage the country and enslave the populace. We CAN NOT give an inch on this 2nd Amendment assault. If he uses an executive order we need to use a people´s order to counter it. Congress is obviously not going to stand in his way except when their jobs are on the line. They still do not realize that they become expendable when he gets full control.

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Washington -- A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ´no idea´ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate. Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday - and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year. He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. "We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don´t vote at the same rates," President Obama said at a Houston fundraiser the other day. He means that the Obama Democrats are now what they call the "coalition of the ascendent," made

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
