Carney: Obama Implementing Executive
Actions Following Navy Yard Shooting

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 9/17/2013 10:07:30 AM

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Monday wearily lamented “yet another mass shooting,” this time in the nation’s capital where the debate that raged earlier this year over tightening firearms laws has stalled amid opposition from gun-rights advocates. The shooting at the Washington Navy Yard came a week after voters recalled two Colorado legislators who supported tougher gun measures, illustrating the strong political headwinds faced by lawmakers seeking to respond to the violence. Obama, for one, has been powerless to get legislation passed despite a string of mass shootings during his presidency. In the wake of the shooting at the Navy Yard, Obama

To my mind, the only thing this shooting proves, in addition to all the other shootings at military installations, is that Obama is a weak, do nothing, kind of person.

Unless it involves a sneak from behind attack with drones, he will do nothing to fight this, yet again. Except to attack legal, law abiding citizens who own guns.

This man can´t even make an effort to help his own community in Chicago, where mass death happens on a daily/weekly basis. That is the real tragedy here.

Congress has to take the bull by the horns and put a stop to the illegal actions that are being taken by ALIbama.

If he or Holder don´t particularly like a law they tell enforcement officials to ignore the law and not enforce it. That is illegal !!

If congress refuses to pass a law to his liking he just creates a law by executive action. That is illegal.

As everybody here knows, there are many more illegal actions he and his buddy Holder take every day. Too many to get in this little box.

In my opinion these actions are impeachable items but no one has the guts to start the process. This country will cease to exist as we know it unless somebody takes some legal action to stop it.

Hey Mr. President BO. You talk about, "strengthening gun laws, including expanding background checks to sales online and at gun shows." I understand the President of the United States is the Commander in Chief of all military and "military Campuses." The shooting was on "your" property with "your" military and hired staff working after "your" background check following "your" security protocol and shooter received a paycheck signed by "your" representative while installing "your" computers. Thank God "our" police had guns and were able to cure the situation. 13 dead yesterday. 13 dead Fort Hood. Why are "your" military killing each other under your direction as Commander and Chief?

Maybe if the government hadn´t grown to be such a behemoth,

and maybe if government hadn´t starting paying ridiculous amounts of money and bennies to both employees and contractors,

and maybe if government hadn´t started hiring people based on race (blacks and other minorities move to the top of the list),

and maybe if qualifications were more important than political correctness (think Nidal Hassaan),

and maybe if government wasn´t dominated by liberals and liberal/communist/democrat politicians giving out these jobs to buy votes,

then maybe, just maybe, we wouldn´t have this problem which is exemplified by the rise to power of the useless Zerobama, a man who has supplanted, if you can believe it, Jimmuh Cahtar as the worst president ever in the history of the world.

And now I have a question: what in the hell is wrong with you weak spined Republicans? If you guys don´t wake up and start acting like men, I am staying home in 2014/2016 and will encourage every Republican voter I know to do the same. Third party here I come!

Based upon what is known about the shooter to date -there is undoubtedly more to come- it is obvious that any number of red flags were waved and missed over a period of years. When all the pieces are put to together it will probably be seen that this man was seriously mentally ill and getting worse for a long time. Those who insist upon blaming firearms for such spree killings turn a blind eye to the real problem, which is almost always paranoid schizophrenia or something close to it. It is quite remarkable that the latest killer was employed in a high security position given what was known and documented of his background. What good are background checks if this level of incompetence in the checkers exists? Perhaps this is another Fort Hood situation in which the future murderer was spotted and known to be a problem for years but handled gently and ineffectively because of minority status.

Stand by for the usual incoming barrage of demagoguery about firearms from the usual suspects.

Notwithstanding the heartlessness of a president of a President who would go forward with a speech just a few miles from a site where a shooting rampage was occurring while he was talking, and that the media was reporting it, the bottom line is that the background checks to gain clearance to restricted military installations are woefully inadequate. If the suspect could get a clearance, then it appears anyone can, because there were multiple instances of his problems on record and he was currently undergoing treatment for a psychological problem at the VA.

#5, there was no rifle, only the usual worthless reporting by the propaganda media. CNN even claimed an ´AR-15 shotgun´ at one point, showing how ignorant they are.

The FBI has today reported he had a shotgun, and two pistols, with the two pistols apparently taken off the security guard(s) he shot.

The shooter was an ex-Navy Reservist who did bad things and was let go by the Navy...he was given an Honorable Discharge which allowed him to secure a job with a Defense contractor...now the Navy faces heat for the ´Honorable´ Discharge...I bet they knew better but would have faced even bigger heat for anything less...a black guy with a ´General´ would have it tough finding anything outside minimum wage in Obamas economy. He did not need a permit for a shotgun and D.C. does not honor outside Carry Permits so this shooter was hell bent on doing bad stuff and knew he could get better fire power once on base by killing a guard or an armed sailor on duty. Bad scene all around. How would dissarming the good guys kept him from his evil deeds?

It´s been obvious for quite some time that one of the purposes of ObamaKKKare is to dry up funding for research into schizophrenia and oher mental illnesses.

The Democrat elite want all that stuff gone!

Obama´s personal beliefs about mental illness are probably along the line of the story he told about surgeons deciding to amputate or fix a damaged foot based on the level of reimbursement. In short, he doesn´t believe it´s real, nor that there are genetic defects that create disease.

He suffers from magical thinking ~ delusions ~ as do other Democrats. Certainly we need a gene test to determine if something is true schizophrenia or just pretend schizophrenia, but maybe we have it ~ how do they register to vote ~ if Democrat, odds are good they are nuts.

This morning I watched a DC reporter provide ´on-the-scene´ coverage for our local CBS affiliate TV station (WLKY, Louisville.) The DC reporter told the reporters on the set that "the NRA had not yet provided any comment" regarding yesterday´s tragedy at the Navy Yard.

Idiots.

This attack happened on a military installation by a disturbed contractor. If anything there was a failure in security protocol, not weaponry.

The media (and this Adminstration) are biased.

Now they are saying that there was no assault rifle involved, and that the perpetrator showed up with a shotgun, disarmed two security guards and took their handguns. They are not sure yet, but that would mean that he had his own shotgun and the two handguns from the security guards when he perpetrated the murders. Obviously the liberal Democrats have a lot of other factors here to mull over before they press on to essentially ban law abiding people from owning firearms.

Federal installations are gun free zones except for security personnel. Employees are trained to lock doors and hide as part of their "Active Shooter" training. That did a lot of good/s.

The shooter must have taken Joe Biden´s advice about using a shotgun.

I have been a civilian contractor working for the US Navy and granted a "Secret" clearance. To give me the clearance, there was no real background check. All they did was pull my three credit reports and a low level clerk proofed my application to see if I answered all the questions.

That is it.....nothing else.

That he had a "Secret" clearance is really no big deal.

Everyone seems to be afraid of what is really going on here. This perp got away with everything, hired by defense contractor, shooting out tires, shooting through ceiling of apartment, and given an security clearance because of affirmative action. He is black so everyone is afraid of saying anything because they don´t want to be called a racist. It´s that simple. I have been seeing it for years and it´s not getting any better. Time for this to stop. The democrats are the real racists because that´s how they look at everything, through the glasses of race.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

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

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February.

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues.

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch.

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
