At Sunday evening´s memorial service for the 26 innocent Newtown shooting victims, President Obama told a tearful crowd: "In the coming weeks, I will use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens--from law enforcement to mental health professionals to parents and educators--in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this." Turns out "whatever power this office holds" is just the ability to tell Joe "BFD" Biden to come up with some ideas by late next month.
Handing to job off to Biden is a delaying tactic. BO knows no serious gun control will take place until there are 5 liberal/left judges on the Supreme Court. When that happens, owning a gun will be impossible.
If anyone who listened to Obama´s news conference yesterday believed that a word he uttered was sincerely uttered, they are delusional. There was not a word out of his mouth that wasn´t calculated and manipulative, but I must admit that it was a brilliant exhibit of Alinsky´s Rules for Radicals. It had to be admired for it´s devious manipulation of minds through words. Unfortunately, we already know that a majority of the American people either don´t see it or don´t care. The next four years will not bring America to a happy place, but a place with trillions more in debt, more job loss and incidently some form of gun legislation to no significant happy result on that either. It is with sadness that I write this.
Putting Biden in charge of this is like putting Elmer Fudd in charge of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, both totally unqualified for anything and only good for a laugh. But then, that´s the entire obama administration in a nutshell.
It was the words "Task Force" that caught my attention - you know the group that will be stronger than our present military. Texas is already beginning to arm teachers - but then Texas is usually "right". That school is too far away from sheriff´s officers to be able to take care of a shooter.
The selection of Mr. Biden provides distraction and a certain gruesome "entertainment". Mr. Biden will be high profile, nonsensical, and insulting to honest Citizens while ignoring topics such as the government-sponsored murder program called "Operation Fast and Furious". The real work of continuing the destruction of the Constitution will occur in private meetings. If Mr. Obama´s handlers feel confident of their strategy they may try to accomplish their work by "Executive Orders", continuing the process of subverting the legislative process. The America-haters/America-wreckers are zealous yet patient as they go about their work.
Another ´´smart´´ move by the Chief-Money-Launderer´´...hand the gun issue off to a loose cannon!...LOL!!! that´s what a communist organizer goes! YEAH!!!!! Sheeeeesh, another 4 YEARS of this crappola!
Those who think the Biden move is just another slow-death-by-blue-ribbon-commission should think again. The point of giving it to Biden is to come up with the most far out ideas possible. Some of those will be implemented just because they´re "worth a try." Then scumbama can pick and choose among the remainder and look like he moved to the middle. Conservatives keep talking about the Alinsky playbook, but all too obviously they don´t have a clue. This is what scumbama does, people!
Let´s pass a law that says it´s illegal to steal your mother´s legally acquired firearms. Then, let´s pass a law that says it is illegal to shoot your mother in the face (with her gun! (how ironic!)) and also illegal to shoot your way into a school and kill 5 more adults and 20 little kids. That should stop the madness...we just need another set of new laws.
--What?? Those laws are already on the books?? Uh--0h! Never mind!
Like most dictators, NØbama doesn´t want any blood on his own hands.
This way, when Congress passes a bunch of feel-good knee-jerk anti-gun laws, crazy Uncle Joe can be the face of that enforcement.
Of course, the gun law militia that NØbama will form, made up of former La Raza and New Black Panther thugs, will be more than happy to do the dirty work of actually enforcing those laws.
When 25 or so Brown Shirts, wearing the best body armor and carrying the best military grade weaponry that our tax dollars can buy crashes through your front door and holds your wife and kids at gun point while giving you exactly one minute to turn over every illegal weapon that you have OR ELSE, remember that elections have consequences.
And, as another poster pointed out, all it will take is one conservative Supreme Court justice to be replaced to assure that every bit of this will be ´´Constitutional´´.
Yes. Handing the job off to Mensa Joe means the biggest idiot in Washington is going to handle a committee with "everything on the table" (I hate that phrase). First clue: A committee will take months, the MSM will lose interest, a few curtailments on clip sizes will happen, then back to normal. The gun manufacturers will cosmetically redesign the popular AR15 to look more like a deer rifle and all will be cool.
Biden is known as one of the most anti-gun politicians in D.C. They will probably pack this task force with other anti-gun politicians and advocates, with spots for one or two RINOS to give the task force some political cover, but if they do that, and concentrate on banning semi-automatic rifles and handguns, they will run into opposition from at least half of the country.
You may remember earlier this year that President Obama, in a fit of pique over Congress actually allowing his sequester cuts idea to take effect, had White House public tours canceled to save lunch money. During the later partial government shutdown, he ordered national monuments "closed," even though most are open-air. Now, comes holiday season in the Obama White House. Although the family travels at Christmas, they go all out for decorations.
Most days here we´re talking about relatively serious stuff -- politics, political maneuvering, political tactics, political speeches, political gaffes, political scandals. Oh, and politicians. Like the Chicagoan currently inhabiting the White House with his mother-in-law while teaching America about his adopted hometown´s chronic style of political ops. We´re all sorry about that. Anyway, today we´re doing something completely different. It's Sunday, which means the National Football League. And it's December, which means the playoffs are shaping up. We're not writing about the games though. We're writing about the show biz side
Merry Christmas, everyone, and hello, my name is Renee Ellmers, and I represent North Carolina’s Second Congressional District. Like many of you, I’m frustrated with the president’s health care law, especially where jobs and working families are concerned. I say this not only as a congresswoman and chair of the Republican Women’s Policy Committee; I say it as a nurse and the mother of a son in college. After all, it’s often women who make the health care decisions for our families. We put a lot of time and thought into these choices and how they’ll affect our budgets. So by canceling your insurance — despite a promise
The holiday season is a time for remembering the bonds we share, and our obligations to one another as human beings. But right now, more than one million of our fellow Americans are poised to lose a vital economic lifeline just a few days after Christmas if Congress doesn’t do something about it. Our top priority as a country should be restoring opportunity and broad-based economic growth for all Americans. And yesterday, we learned that our businesses created about 200,000 jobs in the month of November. That’s more than 8 million new jobs in the last 45 months. And the unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in five
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
You may have noticed over these past 2,501 days that Barack Obama likes to give speeches, sometimes two or more a day. It´s better than Oval Office work. And yesterday the poor guy gave a particularly revealing one. He´s so desperate now that he modestly likened ObamaCare to the suffrage struggle and civil rights. [Snip] But here´s the largest challenge for Obama´s ObamaCare: He must ensure 40% of all enrollees are under 35 and willing to pay huge premiums for coverage they really don´t need. In the scaled eyes of our nation´s community organizer, that´s a kind of civic patriotism.
As everyone knows, California is the la-de-dah, laid-back land of liberalism that´s been Barack Obama´s political ATM for six years. Hollywood stars have loved him, fronted multi-multi-million-dollar fundraisers for him. The most populous state (home to 12 of every 100 Americans) has a Democrat governor again, two female Democrat senators and a Democrat super-majority in the state legislature that has yet to find a problem it didn´t want government making worse at great cost. In presidential politics California has been trending Democratic since 1992. [Snip] Now comes a stunning new poll revealing Obama’s California base has fallen out of love.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
