In campaign for tougher
gun laws, Obama and allies
work to tilt public opinion

Washington Post, by Philip Rucker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/9/2013 10:47:49 PM

The White House is working with its allies on a well-financed campaign in Washington and around the country to shift public opinion toward stricter gun laws and provide political cover to lawmakers who end up voting for an assault-weapons ban or other firearm restrictions. With President Obama preparing to push a legislative agenda aimed at curbing the nation’s gun violence, pillars of his political network, along with independent groups, are raising millions of dollars and mapping out strategies in an attempt to shepherd new regulations through Congress.

Well, Mr. President, even the dimmest lefty bulbs that voted for you can feel the change in the attitudes of Americans over the last several years. The only way you will sway a majority is with money and/or trinkets. It will work. It always does with the kind of folks that vote for you. First you give them stuff and then you scare them that some bad Republican is going to take them away.

Can´t speak for any other area of the country, but any legislator from Texas that buys into this campaign in terms of a vote against Second Amendment rights will be enjoying their farewell tour in Congress. No one - repeat - no one I know will allow the government to confiscate their guns. Vote all you want and see what will happen. Executive fiat will receive the same response from the populace. This is very dangerous ground, I feel, and Obama´s hubris is blinding him from what he will sow.

While the obama ministry of propaganda is getting cranked up Americans have reacted.
I just read that there are a million AR15 magazines on backorder. One million magazines for one type of firearm. When was the last time you have heard of one million of anything on backorder. Molon labe.

I just asked my wife, basically, if it was permissible with her that her old man (well, kinda old) were to give his life for what he believes in. She said ´yeah, sure´ - (aside: she´s a lot better looking than I am, and I have some pretty good insurance). I am willing to die for what I believe. I have a feeling that I´m not the only one. Rick Perry, it is your time to choose: do you do the right (but really dangerous) thing, or waffle? You wanted the job, with it come the sometimes very, very hard choices.

The Japanese didn´t invade the U.S. during WW II because they properly knew there was a gun behind every blade of grass. Barry wants all those guns removed so his favorite people can invade us unimpeded.

The media has diligently attempted to assist in the public opinion battle. However, based on the number of guns, ammo and magazines already purchased during his administration, and especially since November, the lines are pretty well drawn. Oh, there will always be the few in the middle who don´t actually believe obama would be so bold as to take the unconstitutional route his pogues have been suggesting he´d do, but the campaign is over. All´s left to do is watch the results unfold.

Joe Biden Addresses the Nation

Hey, howya doin’, folks.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinkin’: what’s ole Joe doin’ in the Oval Office? I’ll tell ya. The Boss doesn’t want his fingerprints on this one. He said to me, ´´Joe, I need you to lay down the law. I can’t do it because, aside from deciding who to kill with drones, I have a problem makin’ big decisions.

Use the Oval Office. Sit in my chair. Maybe some day it´ll be your chair. I don’t even want to know what you’re proposing. Surprise me.´´

So, here I am with my recommendation. That’s right, I said ´´recommendation.´´ No 2000 page report. with subsections. It’s on this one sheet of paper I’m holding up. On the sheet, one sentence.

Let’s see, it’s 84 now. The country can have a national debate about this until midnight. That’s when the Chief’s gonna sign the order From Air Force One with his autopen. Says nobody can actually prove he signed it if the whole thing goes kablooie in our faces.

Here’s the deal, and I quote: ´´If it fires a projectile, any projectile, it’s banned.´´
That clear enough for ya? No handguns, no rifles, no bazookas, no crossbows, no nerf guns, no slingshots, no water pistols. No exceptions.

Whatever you got now that fouls afall of the order—uh, falls afoul of the order--you pile it on the curb in front of your house and the president’s new Civilian National Security Corpse will pick it up.

And don´t even think about appealing to the Supremes. The Court’s suspended and the Justices are under house arrest until a conservative dies.

Now, if you´re listenin,´´ Piers, press your hand to the screen and gimme five.

God bless America.

I said it the other day, and I´ll say it again. What´s #18´s ´´solution?´´ You keep demanding that we give ground to the gun grabbers, to show our good faith. History shows that´s been tried. There have been more onerous laws on the books, federal, state and local. Many of these laws have been struck down as uncontitutional. During this time, homicides, violent crime, and gun deaths have fallen.

I´m perfectly happy with the laws on the books regarding guns. What´s your proposal?

What industries saturate kids and young people, a small percentage of who are dangerous mentally ill people, with continuous multimedia presentations of extremely violent content that they would never experience in real life in their home towns?

It is squarely the Hollywood movie, the television, and the video game industries who are making billions of dollars off violence and who are all liberal Democrat constituency groups.

The American small arms industry, the NRA, and the hundred million law abiding Americans who own firearms do not do that.

This older white female not only purchased a .38 since Zippy´s first term, I joined the NRA this week to try to lend more support.

I sadly and truly do not believe there is a Republican or Democrat in DC that will do the right thing, anymore. Decisions are made only to make or build their wealth or to keep them in office. And we all know the MSM is a Rat org.

Drudge had a link yesterday to something that talked about the fact that buried in the Obamacare bill is a restriction forbidding gun registration. So unless he hasn´t read his own bill, how does he think he can break his own law? #18 really needs to read what was printed in Pravda and take it to heart. And I do not believe you are conservative in anything at all.

The reason the terrorists use bombs...they don´t have guns. If we give up our guns, it will be bomb time. Suicide bombers. The Sandy Hook massacre was a terrorist act. He kills many, then kills himself. Same scheme, different weapon. Now Washington wants us to give in to this terrorist attack and add gun laws.
It is surrender. Terrorist act and Washington surrenders. Plain and simple. And I am sick of these yankee politicians.
I am not your docile servant Washington. I am not Obama´s boy.

There are two reasons America has enjoyed the freedoms and prosperity it has. God and Guns. Our trusted government has tried to restrict both and we are reaping the whirlwind. However there are several million Americans willing to die before we give up our guns. The Christians and Jews in Germany thought that their government would stop waay before it did. We can´t afford to take that chance.

If Obozo attempts to circumvent the 2nd Amendment by executive order (which is, IMHO, illegal) that just might be the tipping point that will start the next revolution or civil war. Call it what you want. After all, I´ve been saying for some time now that this country needs a complete house cleaning, from top to bottom. Get rid of EVERYONE in DC and start from scratch. Of course, there will have to be some changes made, but that can be handled. If was once about 225yrs ago. We can do it again.

All the Cables are spending their time talking about "GUNS" and keeping it front and centre.

Well,what they are really doing is high-lighting just how this administration is manipulating them and "prepping" them as to how they can assist in dismantling the US Constitution. Get rid of the 2nd. ammendment and then have them convince the voters the 14th DOES permit Zippy to raise the debt limit and then, well, we better appoint a commission to re-write the damn thing!

The hypocrisy of the libs is unlimited. Contrast their arguments to infringe on the right to bear arms with their arguments to allow pornography and offensive "art", lest it infringe freedom of speech. More recently and to the point, contrast their push for more firearms registration, databases, and background checks with their howls over voter ID laws that, in their opinion, would suppress the "right" to vote. Perhaps conservatives should link voter ID with gun registration to expose this hypocrisy.

National ID: the arguments for it will not go away.

Re: #18 the repetitive single-issue gun law supporter ostensibly concerned with the mentally unstable having access to guns. The issue has blown past the mentally unstable and goes to whether progressive politicians can nullify the foundational provision in our Constitutions Bill of Rights. Bedrock conservatives and Americans are being told by progressive politicians and a compliant media that they must give up the right to self defense. This is not about the NRA; it is about individual citizens. Gun control as it is being pedaled is more of a threat to the existence of our republic than was the Cuban Missile Crisis. If the progressives don´t stop pedaling, there will be war. Throwing the red herring of the mentally unstable in the face of a free people who know and understand that the very underpinnings of freedom are at risk is a fools errand. The public debate has turned such that outright confiscation of currently legal firearms is being openly advocated by elected officials. Those who pretend that "adjustments to make people safer" are reasonable are nothing but agents of tyranny.

"In campaign for tougher gun laws, Obama armed Mexican drug cartels, resulting in hundreds of murders"

Fixed the headline for you.

Why isn´t the GOP bringing up the 300+ murders that are a direct result of Barack Obama selling guns to the world´s most violent drug gangs?

Obama doesn´t want to talk about "Operation Fast & Furious." He´s so scared of the subject that he´s hiding behind executive privilege.

The MFM doesn´t want to talk about "Fast & Furious." So far, the only networks to offer any serious reporting on the subject are FOX News and CBS. The media won´t talk about Fast & Furious because they know the subject harms their Lord and Savior, Barack Hussein Obama....

So, why not FORCE "Fast & Furious" into the national conversation?

Why not FORCE the media to bring Obama´s Mexican gun-running into the picture?

Why not take the opportunity not just to question the (p)Resident, but to question the questioners in our corrupt media?

Barack Obama has much to answer for in "Operation Fast & Furious." So do the network representatives at ABC, NBC, PMSNBC, CNN, PBS and NPR!

Beautiful #40!

By the way, every single gun control law on the books today is unconstitutional! The 2nd Amendment is clearly written. There is absolutely NO reason we should have ever allowed any law to be created that infringes upon this right. The gun "laws" are ILLEGAL. And don´t tell me that our Founders could never have invisioned the kinds of weapons we have today or how society has changed. Our Founders were much more intelligent and visionary than any of us today--not only because they were guided by God, but also because of the timing. They didn´t live in a world of distraction, fast-paced society, mass media and all other sorts of sensory garbage. And I truly believe that not only was this country created by Providence but our Founders were brought together by God to create a unique beacon of light in a long dark world. They were a true godsend & a testament to the good that mankind CAN do when guided by good. ("good" is derived from the word "God" by the way, for those who didn´t know)

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

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

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
