Biden: W.H. eyeing 19
executive actions on guns

Politico, by Reid J. Epstein

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 1/15/2013 7:20:10 AM

The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Later this week, Obama will formally announce his proposals to reduce gun violence, which are expected to include renewal of the assault weapons ban, universal background checks and prohibition of high-capacity magazine clips. But Biden,

None of the measures they are talking about would prevent another school massacre. This is the foundation for the gun grab the liberals have been planning for years. They are very patient.

Can´t pass through legislation, so do it through edict.

This is when states need to take a stand.

There have been other mass shootings in Obama´s first term. Of course, he would not propose gun control before his re-election campaign lest that become an issue that would stir up opposition.

fta: “It was all focusing on enforcing existing law, administering things like improving the background database, things like that that do not involve a change in the law but enforcing and making sure that the present law is administered as well as possible,” said Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.).

So long as the executive orders only enforce existing law, then they really can´t be challenged. But how many people really expect the orders won´t stretch or break existing laws -- or more likely create laws where there were none before?

The worst part is, that it really won´t matter to the next bunch of innocent people trapped in a gun-free zone with some nutcase who ignores laws anyway.

As I have understood the process for quite awhile, please let me elaborate. To make a new law a bill has to be introduced in the House first and voted on by a majority of the representatives. Then it proceeds to the Senate where an exactly similar worded bill must be passed by a majority of the Senate. It then proceeds to the president who either agrees and signs it or disagrees and vetos it. If that is in the affirmative then we have a genuine new law. An executive order does not follow this process so it is not a directive that I intend to follow.

IMHO, this is all theater for the one objective that will lead to confiscation in the future. The Dems know they can not pass anything so they will push for the REASONABLE requirement for universal background checks, which is the precursor for a NATIONAL DATABASE. Then they can come and get them.

Don´t believe for a second that these actions are anything but a smokescreen for some other Obama sneak attack! If he can do them that´s just icing on the Obama cake! In the meantime Benghazi is dying down, there is no furor over the real cost of Obamacare and no public outcry over the clowns he´s nominating for his cabinet! Joe Biden has got to be furious that he has to keep doing the presidents job while Barack spends his time on the golf course or on a basketball court.

Obama is pushing hard to incite violence. It is what he wants and who he is. He knows once things turn violent, he can bring the full force and weight of the government down on the perpetrators. Otherwise why would he be so confrontational? He could have had an reasonable conversation with the American people on the subject of gun violence, but he wanted to stir the pot. Things are going just as he planned. He needs us divided and at each others throats to further his agenda. It is a simple strategy, divide and conquer.

Number 16 may be correct. The president is either knowingly or miserably inept, and may incite violence.
Makes one think of Iran who believes their savior will only come to conquor the world for their religion after catastrophic destruction. And they think they are bringing it about by their actions.

If the information in this article is correct, then all the actions cited here will do absolutely nothing to stop or deminish mass violence and school shootings. How many criminals and mentality deranged people have been denied a gun over the past 30 or 40 yrs? I´d bet a bent nickel that that number is VERY small. The overwhelming owners of firearms are peaceful, law abiding citizens. And all they want is to be left alone to live their lives as THEY choose to do.

I have to agree that the long term goal here is to overturn the 2nd Amendment in any way they can. The reason is simple. An armned citizenry is impossible to defeat. You must first disarm the citizens to be able to take over a country. Re-read the history of the communist takeover of Russia. Their way of disarming the citizens was to round them up and shoot them. Mass murder. I really don´t think that will happen here because I don´t believe our military will fire on it´s own people. But in any case, we must constantly be on alert.

Obama may view himself as supreme, but this is a Republic and states rule over the federal gov. The Constitution cannot be changed except as the majority of states vote to do so. THAT´S not going to happen. We must not let ourselves be pressured into giving up any right by something as tenuous as Executive Orders which cannot change anything fundamental.

I am repeating myself only because I know that the Dems cannot pass anything through the congress. For that reason they will put forth REASONABLE ideas like UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS, embedded in this will be provision for a NATIONAL DATABASE. After the dust settles another tragedy will happen in another GUN FREE ZONE, after which the Dems will enact more REASONABLE rules eliminating guns from CERTAIN households, then the NATIONAL DATABASE will be used to pick up the guns from certain people, a list which will expand quickly, till they have enough that the population is DISARMED.

As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali. This campaign was orchestrated by the Muslim Student Association and by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization which is the American face of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Someone sent author Naomi Wolf a copy of my latest article about this scandal: “Brandeis Feminists Fail the Historical Moment.” It was my response to Brandeis’s shameful dis-invitation of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

An ex-Arizona sheriff and supporter of Cliven Bundy spoke out to defend the Nevada rancher in a radio interview this week, flagged by Right Wing Watch, and he compared Bundy to Rosa Parks while decrying federal authorities for exhibiting Nazi-like tactics by saying they’re just following orders. Richard Mack told radio host Steve Deace that Bundy took a stand against the government “trying to make sure other peasants don’t rise up with their pitchforks” and said this moment is exactly like “Rosa Parks refusing to get to the back of the bus.” When Deace brought up the “just following orders” justification that

Crimea is in Moscow’s hands. Some of Kiev’s army has surrendered parts of eastern Ukraine without a fight. And now there are signs that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have picked his next targets: First a small breakaway state in Moldova, west of Ukraine, where thousands of Moscow’s troops are already stationed; then its close neighbor Odessa, Ukraine’s third-largest city and its largest remaining port, where pro-Russian and pro-government groups are tangling. If forces loyal to Putin can successfully disrupt Odessa, it could effectively cut the county of Ukraine in two.

New York City’s welfare system is managed out of a boxy 25-story office building on Water Street in Lower Manhattan. Approximately 5,000 employees work there, directing government programs that provide billions of dollars of taxpayer-funded assistance to the poor and near-poor. A solid majority of the workers at 180 Water Street are African-American or Latino; their voter registration is almost certainly overwhelmingly Democratic; and all but about 300 of them are union members. But from 1995 until this past December, the people who worked in New York’s principal social-services agency were leading one of the most conservative and successful welfare

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.

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

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

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
