Even without Congress,
Obama could act to restrict guns

Washington - Unburdened by re-election worries and empowered by law to act without Congress, U.S. President Barack Obama could take action to improve background checks on gun buyers, ban certain gun imports and bolster oversight of dealers. (Snip) Having just won a second four-year term, Obama does not need to fear alienating voters who favor gun rights and he could press ahead without lawmakers on fronts where federal law enables executive action. Speaking in Newtown, where a gunman on Friday killed 20 children and six adults in an elementary school, Obama vowed late on Sunday

Comments:
This is chilling to read. If an Executive Order can be issued, what court can stop it? And, if it does, 0bama has shown that he will ignore it and Congress.

It´s simple, just ignore him and his EOs! They don´t have the force of law behind them and they are nowhere supported by the constitution only by tradition. This president only follows tradition when it suits him and he´s no better than I am.

The long overdue national Just Say No campaign should start right here. The GOP won´t act. We can. Just tell Obama to pound sand.

"Obama does not need to fear alienating voters who favor gun rights"

That´s true enough -- none of them would have voted for him, anyhow.

I hope that President Obama will "lead from the front" on this issue and set an example for the rest of the country.

Imagine the moral impact that simply banning firearms among his Secret Service detail could have.

It may seem small thing to do, but the impression it would make here and on the rest of the world would be profound.

True enough. But the rest of the pond scum in house and senate most certainly do. And they do love their perks!

If restrictions are put in place for the sale of "assault weapons", does that mean the United States of America Federal Government won´t be able to sell them to Mexican drug dealers - or will they be exempt from the law like Congress is exempt from 0bamacare?

Obama must now lead by example. He could start by declaring the area around Himself - say, a 100 yard radius - to be a "gun-free zone". Within this zone, wherever He may roam, no one, not even the Secret Service, would be allowed to carry any manner of firearm, especially for the purpose of protecting and defending Dear Leader. Thus, by His compassionate example, would we know that He cares, sincerely and truly cares, for the lives of innocents. Not like those bitter clingers, clinging to their guns like deranged madmen.

I´m thinking that very many of us would back this "gun-free zone" proposal, with enthusiasm.

Barack Obama is Mexico´s biggest gun dealer.

Obama´s "Fast & Furious" has resulted in, what, over 300 murdered Mexican citizens?

All hail Wise King Barky!

When he isn´t complaining about gun ownership, he´s selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels!

This Brady foundation is one of the biggest left wing nag groups in the country who see a golden opportunity here.They didn´t even allow parents time to mourn before exploiting the tragedy.

Whether Obama doesn´t have to worry about relection doesn´t matter that much.He´s already reviled by half the country and all this would do is make people hate him more and possibly explode into another civil war.

If a president has the authority to impose his will on people without the consent or oversight of congress,we may as well dissolve congress and make the president the dictator.

For Obama to over rule a constitutional right,out of thin air means the Constitution is worthless also.Free speech is already on it´s way out along with the freedom of religion.What´s to stop Obama from declaring himself eligible for a 3rd term?

Roto-Rooter and the vast majority of citizens of the several States are Constitutionally illiterate. The President does not have law making authority, as noted above EO´s are not Constitutional,nor are Court decisions law. Take time to do a little studying friends, our enemies really do make it so very easy for us.
Keep the faith, we will survive this as a culture and as patriots. Won´t be pretty or fun, but we will survive.
Prayers and Best wish´s for Miss. Lucianne and all you fellow l-Dotters.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

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

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

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). 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
