W.H. Releases Letters from Little
Kids Pleading for Gun Control

The Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:PChristopher, 1/16/2013 8:22:31 AM

The White House today released letters from little kids pleading for gun control, just hours before President Obama is to release a comprehensive proposal to limit guns and ammunition. The letters were released to the Associated Press in what appears to be a coordinated effort to help shape the narrative the day of Obama´s announcement.

Comments:
Oh, how sweet...I´m sure they just copied whatever teacher wrote on the board for them...if they were even from kids at all.

I have four granddaughters, ages 10 to 22. I don´t think it would ever have occurred to any of them to write to the president about guns. They might have written about any number of other subjects, but guns????

Does this remind anyone of Jimmy Carter´s supposed bedtime conversation with a very young Amy about "nuclear proliferation"?

Just when you think the agitator-in-chief cannot possibly get any more insultingly cynical, he springs the old "for the children ploy". Shades of Saddam Hussein asking one of HIS human-shield-children if he had "enough milk". Like Hussein, the pathetic ´dear leader of the left´ has NO shame. What a terrible time in the history of this country as we painfully see once again that Elections really DO have consequences.

Get use to it - 4 more years of the most narcissistic human being in America doing whatever he can to ´create his legacy´...

So, wonder if Obama turned those letters over to the cops - as was done by one high school who told the students to write ´anti-violence pledges´ - which were then handed over to police for potential ´crime solving´ via handwriting samples?

Nothing like using a ´tragedy´ to convince the kids to hand over evidence w/o a warrant, eh?

Noted elsewhere today - the White House has just ´doubled´ the required signatures on petitions filed with ´em - before an answer is required. Guess they think a petition for Impeachment couldn´t top that number?

As if...

Little children are being exploited. By the president of the United States.

They do not understand the Constitution. They do not understand mental illness. They do not understand anything that goes into this complicated issue.

Their emotions are being manipulated and used to further an agenda.

This is despicable.

Commenters are ignoring fact that surely 60% or more of these children voted for Obama in 2012. They were not aware that the local Obama for America office used their names, but those votes still counted in the hundreds of voting precincts that went 100% for Obama.

So if they can vote without knowing, they can stand around Obama without knowing the Consitutiion.

Seriously, Obama use of children is an eerie update of Michael Jackson. Weird that the WH would do a reprise of the Neverland Ranch.

An understanding of current social issues are a part of many states´ education standards. So, letters about gun control from children don´t surprise me at all. The social studies lesson was extended to a writing/language lesson and with the inauguration coming up, the President is already the focus of many classrooms. Wonder how many teachers will earn some extra merit pay if one of their student´s letters was chosen.

What "uncoached" 8 year old routinely uses the word recommend? Next, we alredy have laws saying we cannot own machine guns, enforce the laws we have. Also, if you wnt to really STOP the violence, get the guns out of the criminals who are NOT suppose to have them and commit 99.9% of the gun crime. Why do they have no answer when we ask them about taking guns out of the hands of criminals??? These letters sound like they were written by parents or teachers and they used the child´s name to do it. How about if we get conservative parents to get THEIR kids to write letter so obama will not infringe on our constitutional rights???? Will they post those letters???

President Barack Obama, his wife and the first daughters may have to cut their latest vacation short because of Russia’s meddling in Ukraine. The Obama family’s current plan for the weekend is to escape the cold, snowy doldrums of Washington, D.C. for some rest and relaxation in sunny Key Largo, Fla., reports the Daily Mail. However, despite Obama’s earnest invocations of international law, pro-Russian forces and the Russian government are making swift military and political moves in Ukraine’s Crimea region. Consequently, the Key Largo holiday could be in peril. “It is possible the president may return to the White House

Senators blocked President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division Wednesday in a bipartisan filibuster, with opponents saying his history defending a convicted cop-killer in the Supreme Court made him a poor choice. The defeat of Debo P. Adegbile, who as an attorney for the NAACP backed appeals by former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, is a major blow to Mr. Obama. Democrats changed the rules last year to overcome filibusters with just 50 votes, but Majority Leader Harry Reid couldn’t even muster all of his own troops Wednesday.

Obama to Russia: There

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

Thirteen House Democrats have proposed legislation that would require the governemnt to study hate speech on the Internet, mobile phones and television and radio. The bill, sponsoed by Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) and 12 other House Democrats, would look at how those media are used to "advocate and encourage violent acts and the commission of crimes of hate." The Hate Crime Reporting Act, H.R. 3878, is meant to update a 20-year old study from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). That study, delivered to Congress in 1993, looked at hate speech on radio, TV and computer bulletin boards.

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges. Police sources have confirmed that Shah was a vocal political activist

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

It’s been less than six months since Bret Stephens used a version of this headline, but four events in the last week have caused it to scream in my mind. Before I get into those four events, let me say that I understand the only way to stay remotely sane in Washington, D.C., is to ignore 85 percent of whatever is trending at any given moment. That said, there are times anyone less isolated than a Carthusian monk is unavoidably exposed to “news” that 25 years ago would be considered fit only for National Enquirer. The four events that have disturbed

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of the hate-fueled Westboro Baptist Church, is at “the edge of death,” his son reports. Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

As the search for the missing flight MH370 enters its 10th day with few clues as to its whereabouts, the New Straits Times said today the Boeing 777-200ER dropped 5,000 feet (1,500m) to evade commercial radar detection. In an exclusive story, the government-backed paper said investigators analysing MH370’s flight data revealed that the 200-tonne, fully laden twinjet descended 1,500m or even lower to evade commercial (secondary) radar coverage after it turned back from its flight path en route to Beijing.

BOSTON- Boston´s Irish-American mayor will not march in the city´s St. Patrick´s Day parade on Sunday after failing to hammer out a deal with organizers to allow a group of gay and lesbian activists to march openly. Mayor Marty Walsh had tried to negotiate a deal with organizers, the conservative Allied War Veteran´s Council, to allow members of MassEquality, one of Massachusetts´ largest gay activist groups, to join the parade. "So much of our Irish history has been shaped by the fight against oppression," Walsh, the city´s first Irish-American mayor in 20 years, said in a statement. "As mayor of

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

One of our planes is missing. That’s basically all we know for certain right now, but more than a week after losing contact with flight MH370, there are a lot of other suggestive bits of information. Unfortunately, a lot of it is, as usual, being reported by news readers who barely understand that you don’t want to keep the pointy end aimed at the ground for an extended time. Here’s some things we do know now. The first indication of trouble was when the transponder stopped responding to radar. This is the point where newspeople are saying it “dropped off the radar,”

The number bounced around for years — 46 million. President Obama said it in August 2009: “I don’t have to explain to you that nearly 46 million Americans don’t have health insurance coverage today. In the wealthiest nation on Earth, 46 million of our fellow citizens have no coverage.” He said it dozens more times, including in June 2013: “We are not a nation that accepts nearly 46 million uninsured men, women and children.” The Obama administration pumped the number with official reports. The White House Council of Economic Advisers said, “Perhaps the most visible sign of the need for health care
