The White House Joins the Cash Grab
New York Times, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 3/3/2013 6:45:14 AM

It is tempting to applaud the nonprofit group now spending nearly $100,000 on ads to pressure Republican lawmakers to accept gun-control measures. The group is fighting a well-financed and powerful corporate gun lobby that has never hesitated to spend millions to get its way in Congress. But a closer look at this group shows how disturbing its work really is. Its name is Organizing for Action, and if its initials seem familiar, that’s because the group is the direct descendant of Obama for America, the president’s campaign organization in 2008 and 2012.

The Democrat Party better look out. Obama appears to be building a political organization all his own. This ain´t good. With his desire to build up and use the DHS to oppress citizens he views as enemies, this makes him a threat and danger to all Americans.

Looking eagerly to see him fulfill his campaign promise to form a group "as well armed and as well funded as the US military".

Nothing to see here...move along...

It is only a matter of time before his true agenda emerges for the lo-fos to see. Then it will be too late. DHS is buying all this ammo for one of two reasons - to get it out of the hands of guns owners or to be prepared to attack US citizens when the rebellion begins.

It is either one or both. O has an insidious plan in the back of his mind to maintain control after 2016 - we have to stop voter fraud NOW!!

Start recruiting others to see what is really happening. Otherwise we are going to be like Germany - cheering our own demise.

Why did I even bother reading this when there was no doubt the times would eventuly blame conservatives in the conclusion? Of course, this is the same leftist mouthpiece that never made a squeak about obama´s $billion war chest that included uncounted millions in dirty, illegal, untraceable foreign contributions. Not to mention creepy criminal bundlers like corzine who kicked in cash to organizing for the overthrow of America.

Naturally, the NYT declares that republicans started it all and Obama is merely taking an ´if you can´t beat them, join them´ approach. The NYT refers to social welfare groups that republicans used to raise cash, but doesn´t name names. Does anyone know what groups they are referring to? No doubt the Koch brothers are involved...

For years the networks have made hay while the sun shines during election years. Now the Obamboozler has found a way to stay in campaign mode and fund the networks (who are suffering from ratings that drop every year) and other media to keep them in his back pocket. Legalized money laundering, bribery, kick-backs and influence-pedaling all rolled up into one big blunt from the the guy who never met a dictator he didn´t like.
Now all they need is Ben Bailey from Cash Cab to ask "You in?"

...Mr. Obama denounced the practice. “You can’t stand by and let the special interests drown out the voices of the American people,”...

Obama´s followers and his Administration are all about "drowning out the voices of the American peopl." They did it with ObamaCare, with TARP, with failed energy endeavors, with expensive luxurious vacations on our dime and now with the gun grab.

This is a move decidedly geared to disarm legal gun-owners so that they cannot defend themselves when Obama´s Storm Troopers come knocking at your door claiming you´re using too much electricity or water.

Worse, don´t forget Obama´s vow to form a "civilian police force as well armed as the military." Yes, he did say that.

So, do we turn our backs hoping that others will handle it? Does the NRA have enough power to squash this? Or is the revolution at our doorstep?

Hitler did it because the country couldn´t believe he would. Plus he had a willing populace who believed in racial supremacy because Hitler told them they were the Master Race.

How much real difference do we have here? Sure, it´s not getting much coverage in the media but the real agenda is a smokescreen for the larger one -- dictatorship or worse.

America MUST pay attention. It´s no longer a conspiracy theory. It´s a real conspiracy.

The important thing isn´t that the NYT criticizes Republicans. That´s as startling as saying their its editors breathe. This is a big slam on Obama and it´s very significant that the NYT is taking notice of his sleazy ways.

#2, Organizing for Action IS his "well armed and as well funded" entity.

It has morphed into this to ensure threats to citizens until fraud takes place in future elections, and it´s tax free. He will use them to overturn the House´s current Republican majority in 2014 so his lame duck years will be those of rule and not governance.

God help us!

In re #10, I took a look at the video.

If the contents of the gentleman´s claims can be substantiated, "a scary hair raising scenario" understates Obie´s ultimate and horribly evil aim to control American citizens that may include formation of his own political party. To think that a sitting president is currently and openly replacing his military brass with those Generals who would be willing to order their men to fire upon non-conforming American citizens, if ordered to do so, tells me that pushing Obie out now and putting him behind bars can´t happen soon enough. What on earth are we waiting for?

As I have said many times here, I´m waiting for someone or several someones to come forward and start organizing the comming revolution. We know it´s comming, so now is the time to start preparing. And as long as it´s done on private land, the governmnet really has no excuse to step in and try to stop it. Especially if we are all armed to the teeth. Remember, citizens outnumber those in government including the police forces and the military. And a lot of them are NOT going to fire on the citizens of this country.

#10 & #16 Several points concerning video

1)I have been afraid of this very thing for some time now. I asked my cousin several years ago, retired military, if the military would fire on citizens. His answer was no.

2)In my job as RN for an immunization company, we recently put on a clinic at a local military base. I had some NCO´s come thro my station(an aside;I gave fewer shots than some other nurses as I was questioning the guys along these very lines) and I asked them, after getting into discussions indicating they had same thoughts as I did..sorry for run on sentence......I asked if they thought US military would fire on citizens, both, after consideration, said some would, yes. So....video is correct.

FTA: It is tempting to applaud the nonprofit group now spending nearly $100,000 on ads to pressure Republican lawmakers to accept gun-control measures.

Why?

Stop to think [not that it ever happens at Pinchy´s]. Why "gun control"? How many of the at least two hundred million American-owned firearms are ever used in crimes? And of those, how many are used in crimes committed by the legal owner? The tiniest, tiniest number, as we all know and have known forever.

What could possibly be the reason?

And we haven´t gotten to the five vital words: "shall not be infringed."

Do you know "The Battle of Athens, Tennessee"? You should. You should.

Every time I read something like this, I see how much closer we are coming to being another Hitler led Germany, I don´t think it is far off. I think all our guns will be confiscated, our freedoms taken away and we will be told what to eat, say, do and every other aspect of our lives AND I think it is closer than you think. People will still have their head in the sand when it happens. Its already too late to change.

But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

Diplomacy downplay: Obama administration

The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal
Set Path to Papacy

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

Obama in Jerusalem

Posted By: Oblio- 3/16/2013 7:43:15 AM     Post Reply
When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

I hope I´m not too late to the fight.Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul´s stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn´t give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with "lethal force, such as a drone strike … and without trial."

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.

When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
