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.

Why do they always think they have to legislate something. Just follow what is already on the books, also you can´t protect everyone all the time. Bad things do happen and legislation will not 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.

Ann Coulter takes up ‘Mitt

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article

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

He’s been hammered for going around Congress with executive orders. But he’s within his authority—and he should go further on voting and transparency to make government work better. With Congress paralyzed, President Obama has promised to use his “pen and phone” to overcome the ongoing dysfunction and get some work done. And the White House has already acted several times to help improve America’s economy. But such policies, no matter how valuable, will achieve little if we do not fix our broken democracy. Allow me to suggest some ideas for how the president can do just that. First, some historical context. Presidents

Here is a selection of highlights from Friday’s release of documents from the Clinton presidency. The cache is part of a total of about 33,000 pages of presidential records that had been held back from various public records releases because of legal reasons exempting them from disclosure. A Clinton administration memo (page 674) shows a White House that was acutely aware of the first lady’s image problems as officials contemplated how to soften perceptions of Hillary Clinton and how to “build, energize and expand” her natural base. The latest cache of previously withheld Clinton documents includes an

They say it´s the sincerest form of flattery. At a press conference yesterday President Obama asserted that when it comes to ObamaCare, the Republican Party "is going through the stages of grief--anger and denial and all that stuff--and we´re not at acceptance yet." We used the same gag in October, though ObamaCare supporters were the butt of our joke. And we were recycling our own material: We also invoked the Elisabeth Kübler Ross "stages of grief" way back in November 2000 in reference to Al Gore´s refusal to concede his loss to George W. Bush.

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used.

Regardless of how people feel about Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the federal Bureau of Land Management over his cattle’s grazing rights, a lot of Americans were surprised to see TV images of an armed-to-the-teeth paramilitary wing of the BLM deployed around Bundy’s ranch. They shouldn’t have been. Dozens of federal agencies now have Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams to further an expanding definition of their missions.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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.

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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

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.

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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have
