Vice President Joe Biden revealed that President Barack Obama might use an executive order to deal with guns. "The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executives orders, there´s executive action that can be taken. We haven´t decided what that is yet. But we´re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required." Biden said that this is a moral issue and that "it´s
Comments: No!! We know that charlatan isn´t "considering" it. He wants to do it. We knew something like this would happen from the vile 0bama. And by the time any lawsuit would wind it´s way through the court we will be doomed. I don´t know how much more of this I can take.
Government, at all levels, is signally its belief that total collapse is on the horizon. When that happens, they want the only weapons to be theirs. This has nothing to do with Sandy Hook or any other person or incident. It has everything to do with our government telling us subtly that a major upheaval in society is imminent.
It´s so cute when ivory tower DC types think they can reverse the tides and stop the sunrise.
I wonder if the attorney general i.e. the top law enforcement officer will point out that the 2nd Amendment is still in force and still unambiguous, unlike those emanations and penumbras that gave us Roe v Wade?
It takes a special kind of nerve for the sleazy, backstabbing Biden to talk about morality but he´s no different from the rest of his fellow hypocrites.
i hope he does soon - we need to get this into the judicial system asap and put a stop to this nonsense before one of the good guys on the Supreme Court retires and Obama´s swing vote gets appointed. Even at that, it may be a close call, but at least we still have a chance. The Supremes are usually very committed to precedent and I would hope a good one would be set here. This would be an interesting test on several levels - 2nd Amendment, separation of powers. If adults are running the country it should fail on both counts - the question is whether or not we have competent leadership anywhere.
#7 - I´m not a conspiracy theorist either, but I do wonder why so many civilian branches of government (Post Office and Social Security Administration, for example) purchased millions of rounds of ammunition last year. Their explanations didn´t pass the smell test.
A student of law -- all the more a Constitutional scholar -- would know damned well that an Executive Order is not sufficient to amend the Constitution. If O´Biteme try this, it will essentially be declaring the Constitution void, which will officially announce a resumption of the Civil War.
Instead of a fight to free the blacks, this time will be a fight to enslave the people.
FTA: "As the president said, if you´re actions result in only saving one life, they´re worth taking.
That is the all-time most stupid liberal platitude. NO! If you´re actions result in only saving one life, they´re NOT worth taking.
The above comment by zippy quoted by biden is a ridiculous cliché. How about a ban on cars, booze, baseball bats, fireplace pokers, bicycles, flights of stairs, 2 X 4s, glue, airplanes, and so on? After all if those actions result in only saving one life . . . .
By threatening a gun control Executive Order, you have to wonder if the White House is already signaling that whatever they are proposing does not have a chance to pass the Congress.
There has got to be a lot of Democrats now in Congress from swing districts who know that they will not be re-electable if they support a big liberal Democrat ban on just about all modern semi-automatic handguns and rifles and a $200.00 tax per firearm on all the many millions of semi-automatic firearms already out there. It´s hard to believe that the Obama Administration and the liberal Democrats would be able to get such a gun control bill through the Republican controlled House of Representatives.
#21 there was a segment on this morning news on the problems local police are having with acquiring ammunition. I am sure that part of it is due to the government´s vast purchases, but that was not mentioned. It will not surprise me if there is an emergency order to highly limit the sale of ammunition as there is not enough for the police.
#2 He is intentionally inciting a Civil War. This is his end game with the American People. He well knows the Dollar is fixing to crash and the only way he can hold on to power is by seizing our weapons.He hates everything American and has promised his MB Buddies and the Blacks that he will get even with Whitey. It has been his plan all along. He is a clear and present danger to the security of this Nation. Where is the Military in all of this ?
2nd amendment says "The right of the people shall not be infringed-" says nothing about the Executive making all manner of orders to limit the rights of citizens. If Øbama can use executive orders to take our inalienable or God given, gun rights, there will be no limit to the rights he can take. The Constitution will, in that moment, die!
It appears to me they may want to ignite a war believing they can take out a third to half of us and then subdue the rest. They know they can´t get a law passed neutering the 2nd amendmant - So they force the hand of the citizen to cross the Rubicon.
Arrogance, evil and malevolency in their cup is rising towards overflow.
This will be enforced by up to 800 "TSA VIPR" teams which are fanning out across the country as this is being discussed. TSA VIPR teams also include local and state police who are receiving federal funding. Google "TSA VIPR" for huge surprises and get ready for a new America within 2 years time.
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. This is the law for all americans. President Obama, this includes you.
OMG is there ANYONE representing WE THE PEOPLE in DC? Where are the other branches of Govt? Where are the Republicans? I want to hear some Senators and Congresspeople screaming from the rooftops!!! Is it really going to take armed combat to fend off this Communist Pig and his army of thugs?
I get so irritated reading day after day after day about how much latitude that idiot gives himself with all his smugness and NOBODY calls him out.
Some people may think Alex Jones is a nut, but we need our representatives to start showing this level of seriousness and passion or there will be blood in the streets.
Will NEVER forgive idiot Americans who voted for this Piece of Crap!
There are approximately 125 million gun owners in the country, with approximately 300 million guns. The American military has been reduced to approximately 2 million, and the combined police forces of every municipality, county, and state would probably number around 7 to 10 million. I would guess that less than half of them would take up arms against their fellow Americans. Even if they did, they would be outnumbered 10 to one. Even with vastly superior firepower, those are not odds I would like to fight against.
Gun owners who are sitting on the fence won´t stay there long once they see their families, friends and neighbors being hauled off by jack-booted thugs with badges.
Luke 11:21 "When a strong man fully armed guards his own homestead, his possessions are undisturbed." It´s a shame pastors & priests have quit teaching the Bible like my pastor did for 50+ years. He faithfully taught from Greek & Hebrew, taught many lessons of history & during the military in WWII was a friend of Barry Goldwater´s which tells you he was very conservative - too bad we are missing those in our Republic congregations today. God will not put up with this "crap"!
An Executive Order would probably relate to ATF implementation of existing regulations, such as FFL holders. I read elsewhere that more than 100,000 firearms allegedly went missing from gun dealers last year. Probably annual ATF inventory audits are in the works with loss of of FFL if guns are unaccounted for and not reported missing.
I am hoping that the first action taken by the first duly elected Republican President is to rescind/repeal EVERY SINGLE executive order issued by our current President, who does not understand he was not elected "king".
So exactly what will the executive order do? Most likely, he will order the FBI to devote no time to respond to background checks so that no new gun permits can be issued. He´ll sic the EPA on the gun and ammo manufacturers so that they have to expend all their profits in legal fees, with the DOJ hoping the bankrupt them. He will allow the DOJ to sue the gun manufacturers, etc. He cannot possibly get a gun bill through Congress in the next two years, but he can use the feds and the public employee union members to do his bidding.
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
