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.

The former first lady, secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate encountered the passionate young woman while taking questions at a “Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation” event at the Lower East Side Girl’s Club in Manhattan, “I have a very different glass ceiling than some of the girls are exhibiting here.

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012

Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment.

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office.

Either he forgot, or he hopes voters have, because a new report shows his latest budget is entirely unbalanced. When Obama released his budget this March, he said it included "smart spending cuts" and closed "tax loopholes" that benefit only "the wealthiest Americans." Obama added that his budget would put "our debt on a downward path as a share of our total economy, which independent experts have set as a critical target for fiscal responsibility."

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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
