Range of executive actions
possible on guns, some more
controversial than others

Fox News, by Barnini Chakraborty

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/12/2013 6:23:10 AM

Washington –As Vice President Biden prepares to hand in a set of recommendations to curb gun violence next week and pro-gun groups dig in their heels, the vice president has put in play the possibility of using executive action to get controversial gun control measures on the books. Analysts and political scholars tell FoxNews.com that if the president goes through with his threat to circumvent Congress and issue executive orders, he is likely to face an expensive uphill legal battle – on the taxpayers’ dime. But while pro-gun lobbyists have vowed to challenge

Americans must come together and demand that Barack Obama live up to his own words and immediately cease being guarded 24/7 by the evil, evil guns he would deny his subjects, I mean citizens, the possession of. I bet we could get over 150 million signatures on a petition in a matter of hours.

I get the feeling the libbies know the American public will cruicify them "if" they take the guns -- so I´m thinking that this is a an attempt to solidify his wacko base....

For example -- those big bad conservatives would rather k@ll children than give up their guns....

Obie and Bite Me bit off more than they can chew on this one. While the msm continues to till the soil and try to indoctrinate us with this liberal garbage, let´s hasten the departure of the msm now beginning with CNN and the slimes. Pravda is ready to come in and fill the void. Still amazing that the UK media and now a former communist news outlet have woken up, but the msm and the little people foot soldiers here in the USA still push on with Obie´s lost cause. Who´d of thunk it?

We have watched the illegal president take apart our best institutions and assault our morality because Americans were taken by surprise. There has been an argument for four years whether the kenyan was stupid or just evil. The MSM could do nothing but tell us that he means well, we just don´t understand him.

There is no doubt about the gun issue. He will have his hands full on this one because we will not roll over. Even if our republican "representatives" do.

In news today:

President Obama has asked Joe Biden, renown Vice President of the
United States of America, to begin a knife council to determine what
can be done about the use of knives in committing murders. Reports
indicate grinding stones, used to sharpen knives, might be the first
imblements banned in the US. The Steak Restaurant Industry is said to
be up in arms and indicate the lack of sharp knives could hurt their
industry. Prisoners, who make up much of Mr Biden´s gun council, try
to give words of reassurance and say it is easy to cut meat with a
plastic spoon, just like they do in prison, so no big deal. Valerie Jarrett
will reportedly be asked to head up a scissors council which
understandably Fiskars, the hair industry, stores like Linens and Things and
Jo Anne Fabrics are concerned about. More announcements to come on
dangerous things and subsequent councils. Ms Nancy Pelosi, when
pressed on the issue, commented and assured the US citizenry that banning manufacture,
sale, possession and trade of these dangerous items would not cost the
economy one dime, just like she said about the healthcare bill.

"December’s bloody rampage in a Connecticut elementary school with a legally purchased high-power rifle"

Make up your mind, gang. Was it a ´high-power´ rifle or an ´assault rifle´. By definition an assault rifle is not high-powered, rather it uses ammunition of an intermediate power.

But then again, the firearm used wasn´t an ´assault rifle´ anyhow. It was just a standard, semi-automatic rifle.

Sheeeeeeeeeeesh!

What I leared about Executive Orders way back in 1960 evidently has been modified. EO did not have the force of law back then. Today they do.

OK, so that means Bush II could have outlawed abortion simply by issuing an EO. I wonder why he didn´t?

So our next Republican president can issue an EO requiring Voter ID, the wholesale deportation of illegals, and the repeal of ObamaCare.

I sit here all a-twitter in anticipation of our next conservative President.

History has shown that no government can impose laws that do not carry the consent of the governed. In every case, the people either refuse to comply, or pretend to comply while devising other means to circumvent the law. The machinations by Obama and company will prove to be no exception.

Ironic how both the cities of which BO has control over, Chicago and D.C., have the highest crime rates in the country.

Supplanted by the fact that every major urban city with BO´S vast majority of constituents live with the highest gun violence, highest crime, worse drug abuse, highest unemployment, children with either one parent or no parent, largest entitlement community and the least educated in the country.

What a resume?

One kook (white, of course) goes ballistic and the liberals go "knee jerk" and want all guns banned.

Hey Biden and BO...how are your bans, back ground checks, waiting periods and mental health assessment going to prevent the illegal sale and use of guns among the black and Hispanic/Mexican gangs rampant in California where deaths occur every single day? Oh. Wait. It won´t.

Based on their logic, everytime there is a plane crash, car crash, knife killing, etc., all these items should be banned as well.

Did either of them consider as the economy continues to plummet, crime naturally soars.

Who likes gun control, gun confiscation, criminalization of gun ownership? Here´s a new one from veteran blogger Jon Rappoport great article at www.nomorfakenews.com with the explosive title MEXICAN DRUG CARTELS CELEBRATE GUN CONTROL. It isn´t just Hitler
Stalin, Mao, Castro, Feinstein, Bloomberg,
Reid, Puglosi and George Clooney who love destroying the 2nd Ammendment. And Jon has inspired other suggestions. Test this headline: MUSLIM JIHADISTS CELEBRATE REJOICE
OVER GUN CONTROL. And, of course, we are not reminded every day that all criminals, all of our own drug dealing criminal underworld, all of them, celebrate our own citizen´s communists plottings for gun confiscation.

I have some doubts about the seriousness of Obama´s actions. If he wanted something real done about guns, he wouldn´t have put that idiot Biden in charge of it. Instead, perhaps he doesn´t want anything done about guns but only wants an impression that he´s trying to do something. That pleases his base but at the same time he avoids a revolt by the majority of other citizens who want guns.

Obama will "improve" the economy by proclaiming that it is time to "beat our swords into plowshares." He will claim that he has convinced the major world leaders to cut defense spending tremendously.


"We have evolved as a race, the human race. We have come to realize that we are all in this together, and that we must put an end to international suspicions, international friction, power struggles. Heaven on earth awaits us if we will all submit to this agreement."


It is a fact that a cut in defense spending will dramatically improve the economy. If that is his tactic, it is a powerful one. And if enough people accept the Utopian claim that "We have evolved as a species, and are able to leave war and violence behind," then the masses might agree to "disarm" the civilians.

#30: Please don’t insult me with your broad sweeping brush. You know little of what will happen if that Fascist in the WH tries to carry out his ‘threats’.

He already knows that even the Donkey controlled Senate will not support any meaningful gun restrictions and that the House is a dead end.

Why do I post this?

Because of so many posts across the internet that are of the opposite tone from your post. You may be negative and wussy but some of us can and will act when the need arises.

The Kenyan and his Commie buddies from ChiTown know this because they read posts like this and know the consequences if they try to circumvent Congress.

Tens-of-Thousands of us won’t take to the streets and riot. No, we will be behind the trees and rocks and hiding in the weeds all operating independently just like when the British retreated to Boston from Concord and Lexington in 1776.

Chile´s northern coast has been rocked a powerful 7.8-magnitude aftershock, the U.S. Geological Survey has reported, just days after the same area was hit by a powerful magnitude-8.2 earthquake. The aftershock caused buildings to shake in the port of Iquique, which saw some damage from the big quake on Tuesday. There are no immediate reports of new damage or injuries. The latest tremor came 45 minutes after a strong 6.4-magnitude aftershock shook the same area. Scroll down for videos - The stronger aftershock´s epicenter was 23 kilometers south of Iquique.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin made a surprise appearance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” Wednesday night where she joined host Jimmy Fallon in a skit mocking President Barack Obama’s weakness. In the skit, Fallon played Russian President Vladimir Putin in a phone conversation with Palin. “You shoot bear?

MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin has formally divorced his wife, Lyudmila, after more than 30 years of marriage, a Kremlin spokesman said on Wednesday, following a surprise breakup announcement last year. “The divorce has taken place,” Dmitry Peskov said, without giving any further details. Putin and his wife announced that their marriage was over last June in a live broadcast on Russian state television, confirming longstanding speculation that they had separated. The Kremlin made clear at the time that their breakup had yet to be formalized. The ex-KGB spy, 61, keeps his personal life private and little is known about

Power Surge for Donors

Big donors, leaders of political parties and candidates with access to wealthy supporters will be the biggest beneficiaries of the Supreme Court decision issued on Wednesday, a ruling that could fundamentally reshape the political terrain in the 2014 elections and beyond. Election experts predicted a surge of new money into congressional campaigns and political parties, expanding the world of high-dollar fund-raising now dominated by “super PACs” and big-spending political nonprofit groups. The decision effectively eradicates a major campaign finance restriction brought about in the aftermath of the Watergate scandal, the cap on the total amount any one person can give

It was officially billed as a speech to promote raising the minimum wage, but President Obama´s trip to the University of Michigan Wednesday had all the hallmarks of a campaign pitch - one that the nation will likely hear several more times as the midterm elections approach. There was a laundry list of achievements (economic recovery, ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, signing 7.1 million people up for health care), a recitation of the rest of the Democratic agenda (paycheck fairness, expanding college affordability) and a nod to the local restaurant (Zingerman´s Deli, an Ann Arbor institution) where the

The Tonight Show will have a special guest on tonight’s show: Sarah Palin. The show’s Twitter account made the announcement Wednesday afternoon, saying the former Alaska governor will be stopping by the show to “do something fun” with host Jimmy Fallon.(Tweet) The scheduled guests for Wednesday night’s show are Denis Leary, Cat Deeley along with musical guest Nickel Creek. It appears unlikely that Palin will sit down with Fallon for an interview, but perhaps will join him for some type of sketch to promote her new reality series Amazing America, which premieres tomorrow night on the Sportsman Channel.

Benghazi Might Be Fox’s MH370,

CNN has taken a lot of heat–and rightly so!–for its obsessive reporting on missing flight MH370, which has often come at the detriment of more pressing or substantive stories. But no less ridiculous is Fox News’ #Benghazi fixation, which was in full fever Wednesday morning as the network devoted three hours and thirty-eight minutes of continual coverage of a Benghazi congressional hearing. Benghazi has long been Fox’s fallback, less a news story than a sort of epistemological wound that can never close simply because conservatives refuse to accept conclusions about the events of September 11, 2012 that don’t conform to

CNBC contributor Rick Santelli ranted against the media’s tendency to accept certain things as settled fact. According to Santelli, the media, “whether press, TV or whatever it is,” aren’t focusing enough on presenting hard data. “I don’t care how many people visit a website. I want to know how many people, you know, have lost, how many people have gained, the intersection, how many people have paid, you know, kind of an analytical, quantitative approach.” [See video below.] Santelli argued that this was due to the media accepting data from third party sources as settled science. “Seven million, it’s settled.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake
