Obama Chides Pro-Gun Rights Advocates
Who Say They Need Guns To Defend
Against The Gov’t: ‘The Gov’t Is Us’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/4/2013 10:29:23 AM

Speaking before an audience of law enforcement officers in Colorado about the need for stricter gun laws, President Barack Obama chided those gun rights advocates who claim they require firearms to protect themselves against the overreach of the federal government. The president said that these concerns were invalid. “The government’s us,” he said. “The opponents of some of these common sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what’s being proposed – nothing to do with the facts – but feeds into this suspicion about government,” Obama said.

Comments:
0bama says the elected officials are constrained as he is constrained, by a system that our founders put in place?? What a pathetic joke and a pathological liar he is. Everyone in this country should be terrified of this government run by Barack Hussein 0bama.

He is a filthy liar. That´s his job - to tell lies. He lies from the time he gets up in the morning until he goes to bed at night, and then he lies in his sleep. His whole life is a lie. He tells nothing but lies. On the rare occasion that a half-truth leaves his lips, it´s in the service of another lie.

Without getting into the veracity of the statement. Guns are for when the Government is no longer "us" - as was the case in 1776. If the response is "well..trust me it won´t happen", you have your answer.

Dear Emperor Zippy the 1st,

That is precisely why we need guns to defend against the government. You act like you and you alone are the government. You rule by executive decree when you can´t get the legislature to kowtow to your demands and they don´t resist you normally anyway. You are a dictator in everything but name. You are even arming agencies that report to you that have no apparent reason to be armed and you are buying up arms and ammunition to make it difficult, if not impossible for anyone outside of your immediate area of control to buy them. We have every damn reason to be afraid of our government right now.

Look at what the dems have given us in my lifetime. FDR,Harry Truman,JFK,LBJ,Jimmy Carter,Clinton,and Obama. Other than Truman and Carter there is not an ounce of morality, integrity,honesty or competence. Carter was incompetent but at least tried. And now the other Clinton is warming up to further erode the nation.

People do not trust the God-Emperor Barack Hussein Obama. People do not trust the thugs in the Obama regime. Obama and his minions have all lied too frequently to earn or maintain trust. People have concerns for their basic liberties because they have concerns for their basic liberties and these concerns are reasonable. The tremendous volume of gun and ammunition purchases across the country are a manifestation of this lack of trust. It is a negative vote of confidence and the God-Emperor Barack Hussein Obama and his minions need to work to regain the trust of the people, if that is even possible at this point. A simple speech saying "trust me" won´t cut it.

Oh really?

Read: This is commie doublespeak attempting to legitimize the central authorities in totalitarian states with the masses.

The French Revolution´s Reign of Terror had the ´Committee for Public Safety´

The ChiComs have the ´People´s Liberation Army´

The Norks have the ´Democratic People´s Republic of Korea´

Funny how totalitarian regimes usage of ´democracy´ and the ´people´ in titles is inversely proportional to the amount of democracy and individual liberties that is actually permitted.

This is slip of the tongue or lack of historical perspective w/ regards to the 2d Amendment. Barry knows exactly what he´s really saying.

“The government’s us”. Ya right. Tell me another one.

In practice, he messed up big time by bringing this up in a public forum. Until now, most of us have restrained ourselves not wanting to be accused of being wild eyed paranoid fanatics.

Don´t forget, ´Just because your paranoid it doesn´t mean they´re not out to get you´.

It is now time to discuss this openly and endlessly through the 2016 elections and call a Spade a Spade. Of course I mean the deck of cards kind of Spade.

The beauty of his assertion is that it is now obvious that it´s ´Him and His´ against the rest of us.

Mr President. Thank you for this gift.

Obama is so thick between the ears that he believes his own socialist lies. The ´us´ he refers to is Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Napolitano, Hilary, all Democrats, Liberals, his supporters and the like. He thinks that´s all the ´people´ there needs to be, anybody else are just ´subjects´ and taxpayers that need to keep paying out and be kept under control. The pile of straw keeps getting taller and heavier on the people´s back...how many more straws will it take to break their back??? Tick, tick, tick...

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Bill Clinton White House angered a black congressman in 1993 after he was forced to show his ID and submit to a search of his car before Secret Service would allow him to enter the White House for a meeting with then-Vice President Al Gore. A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb.

Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
