President Obama: ´Are
we really prepared to say
that we´re powerless in
the face of such carnage?´

NEWTOWN, Conn.— A mournful President Barack Obama said Sunday that the nation is failing to keep its children safe, pledging that change must come after an elementary-school massacre left 20 children dead. “What choice do we have?” Obama said. “Are we really prepared to say that we´re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?” In a vigil for the fallen, in a moment of grief that spread around the world, Obama conceded that none of his words would match the sorrow. But he declared to the community of Newtown: “You are not alone.”

Obama was doing a good job until he went politcal. It just wasn´t appropriate. He was there to console not to score political points.

Why does 0bama NEVER mention the carnage caused by a Muslim at Ft Hood? I guess that was not a tragedy. Oh well, I´m sure it´s just an oversight....

Obama calls the murder of 20 children a tragedy but blesses the killings of millions as a ´woman´s right to choose´.

He is a wicked man and intends to make this a wedge issue. The Democrats 2014 campaign to retake the House kicked off tonight in Newtown, CT.

As a parent/grandparent/greatgrandparent, I think we should start with the rap music/movies/video games, etc. that foster violence first!

We need to be able to defend ourselves.

I personally do not own a gun or want one, but I respect those who do and want to be able to protect themselves and their loved ones.

The disparity today that exists, that Obama has prospered through class and race warfare, helping/controlling some, and not caring about others.

We need God back in our schools and the 10 Commandments posted - Thou shalt not kill - would be good to see posted and to know that there is a God who created US and loves US, not for US to be told that we can take care of ourselves.

We have always placed our Faith/trust in God. Even our money confirms our inner knowledge.

Obama has caused more confusion/distrust in this country through his many ways of turning one against another.

Obama is more interested in his own personal well being - vacations/parties/golf courses, etc.

We need to "come together" for the betterment of everyone, knowing we are God´s creatures and He loves US.

Can we forget political correctness and just be civil and caring about our fellowman?

Pray together or the government will control every aspect of our lives. God is still our Savior!

We have become a third-world country overnight!

Answering President Obama - Are we really prepared to say that we´re powerless in the face of such carnage? We have been ever since he became president.

We need to live our Faith and not our Fear!God alone can/will free US from Obama´s self-rule!

He just can´t let go of class warfare! For him, what better way to cause rifts in the population but to call for a ban on guns and he does it through "suggestion". Why couldn´t he leave those people alone? They are suffering and all he does is put on a show. Why should we think he´s being honest and truly sorry! Don´t agree with #4. He is an evil man.

Have any of you listened to the vile stuff masquerading as rap music? Death, violence, name calling- words polite company.never uses.
The videos and games are bad... But 24/7 ear buds are in blocking any other messages. This goes beyond race and culture. It is the evidence of society´s demise.

Even as he lectures our nation, Barack Obama is still hiding behind Executive Privilege regarding his role in "Fast & Furious."

Why did Obama and Eric Holder put thousands of firearms into the hands of Mexico´s most violent drug cartels?

Because Obama and Holder wanted to attack our Second Amendment rights.

What did Obama and Holder achieve by arming these Mexican drug gangs?

They got over three hundred Mexican citizens murdered, as well as getting two American law enforcement officers killed as well....

Don´t lecture me on gun control, Barky, you damned fraud. You have the blood of HUNDREDS on your hands.

Word has it that he received a telegram from Tom Green for knocking him off the top of the list for "Worst Actor Ever".

You got it, Mr. President: we are indeed prepared to admit that we are powerless in the face of such carnage. And we think that symbolic, feel-good steps such as banning assault rifles are shallow, ineffective and a threat to our freedoms, since we do not for a moment believe that the banning of weapons will stop with assault rifles. We think the proposed remedy -more gun control- is far more dangerous in a different way to far more people than the disease, the use of firearms by criminals and lunatics to kill people. And we think that such emotion-driven legislation provides a false sense of security. Many of us who think this way neither own nor desire to own an "assault rifle." Many of us do not own a firearm at all. We just hate to see foolish reflex responses of emotion transformed into legislation that encroaches on our freedoms. We are prepared to accept a certain level of crime and lunatic mass killings as the price of liberty.

We are also realists. We know this game is lost. An electorate capable of putting a Barack Obama in the White House not once but twice will undoubtedly be led by its emotions and shallow thinking` to ban assault weapons. That will make them feel better - for a while, until something else happens that makes them want to ban other firearms too. They will most likely do that and keep doing it until at last they have voluntarily disarmed themselves entirely in the hope of staying safe and secure.

"WE" will have to change....? Who is this "we"? Is it all of us stupid "gun clingers"?

This statement provides another insight into the the thinking of 0bama. We´re a monolith of stupid, ignorant, uncivilized, and primitive citizens in need of a caring leader like him.

We are not powerless. There is so much to be done. But they only have one answer.

I am so UNconfident in the republicans these day - plus the news that a conservative supreme court justice wants to step down this year -- we certainly could lose more liberty, more rapidly, than even in the last 4 years.

Foul and vile. He should never have even gone to that town, bringing the chaos of a presidential visit to the already overwhelmed populace. And then to use a vigil of remembrance for politics -- as if anyone thought he wouldn´t do that, but still -- he is the lowest of the low. Despicable is not a strong enough word.

What a pig.

We are not powerless to face this problem. We are afraid of the political correct crowd. The easy way is to blame the gun. The hard way is to confront mental illness and keep guns out of THEIR hands. If it means locking them up for the safety of all, then we must do it. Obama will try to come up with some liberal claptrap to solve the problem. He is afraid to face the real problem.

I have such disdain for this man, there is nothing he could say or do with the exception of I resign, that would impress me.

Everybody needs to pack up and leave Newtown and let these people grieve. To interview the families and small children for tiny details is too much.

When the next tragedy strikes, they will be in the rear view mirror.

As usual the Blamer-In-Chief has to give gravitas to his photo op jaunt to Newtown. He made some crack about our no longer tolerating this sort of thing, as though we had been tolerating it all along and needed him to set us on the right path.

American parents have kept their children safe for a long, long time. Most of us don´t believe in destroying them in the womb, either. We know what he thinks about that. And about the ones who inconveniently survive late term abortions.

So shut up. Your speech was not comforting. It was insulting. And hypocritical coming from one such as you.

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

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed.

The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov.

It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

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

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

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. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
