14 Ways Obama Can Push
Gun Control Without Congress

Mother Jones, by Tim Murphy & Adam Serwer

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/14/2013 10:35:10 AM

By Thursday afternoon, it was clear that Vice President Joe Biden’s charms weren´t going to be enough to persuade the National Rifle Association to get on board with gun control legislation. Following a 95-minute summit at the White House, the NRA issued a curt press release vowing never to surrender. "We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment," the organization said. Instead, the nation’s leading gun group pledged to take its "commitment and meaningful

As if 0bama and the Democrats need any encouragement.

Of course I feel dirty for going to that site, however, upon reading the proposals, I would say most folks - wouldn´t have an issue with at least a half-dozen of them (prosecute those who try to purchase a gun illegally, add a 2nd serial number in a hard to access area of the gun (similar to hidden VIN numbers), background checks for gun store employees, database of the mentally ill for inclusion on Insta-check, investigate thefts of 5 or more guns, DoJ taskforce to combat gun trafficking (IRONIC - considering Fast & Furious!)).

The question is, why has BHO not done these things already?

When I read articles on ANY AND ALL issueS that appears to have an agenda. I try to look at the background of the writer. Also his or her connection to a group or magazine. In this case Mother Jones Mag. Which I seem to recall some of their connection past or present might have been Communist or at leasT Socialist.

Following is a encyclopedia description of Mother Jones Mag.

The magazine was named after Mary Harris Jones, called Mother Jones, an Irish-American trade union activist, opponent of child labor, and self-described "hellraiser". She was a part of the Knights of Labor,[8] the Industrial Workers of the World,[8] the Social Democratic Party,[8] the Socialist Party of America,[8] the United Mine Workers of America,[8] and the Western Federation of Miners.[8]

The stated mission of Mother Jones is to produce revelatory journalism that in its power and reach informs and inspires a more just and democratic world.[9]

Mother Jones is published by the Foundation for National Progress, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Mother Jones and the FNP are based in San Francisco, with other offices in Washington, D.C., and New York.

Wow, that´s some lede.

If there were any honesty at all at Mother Jones, it would read thus:

"By Thursday afternoon, it was clear that the NRA´s charms weren´t going to be enough to persuade Vice pResident Biden to get on board with respecting the 2nd Amendment."

I have a real problem with a database of the "mentally ill". Ever read the HIPPA declaration you get at the Dr´s office? Why not a national database, accessable to the government of all your mnedical records. What would constitute "mentally ill" sufficient to deny gun rights? Rampaging youretts syndrome? A severe dislike of high places, or irrational fear of spiders? IS someone who has been caught railing against the government in seemingly deranged fashion too dangerous to trust with firearms?

A criminal database I can understand, being convicted of a felony means you lose your rights to a firearm. But thats after a Judge and Jury say so. What if you enter an ER babbling incoherently hearing voices. Initial diagnosis is gonna be your off your rocker but months later they find out you had a complication due to a drug interaction. Are you ever going to get your name off that list?

WHo decides who goes on the list? The Dr? Are we going to turn even more law enforcement and social work responsibility to the MD´s? Would it require a hearing in front of a judge to get you on the list. I hope that at least that siple measure would be taken.

None of that would have stopped even one of the bad guys. A list is not the answer, it cannot be because one of the favoprite tools of tyrants is labeling enemies as mentally incompetant and locking them away. Too many envision the "mentally ill" list to be developed on tips from neighbors, observations of strangers and prying into private medical files "just in case".

No thanks.

All such trial balloons ignore the very simply written phrase: "... shall not be infringed."
And that means period. No caveats.

Re #6: A national database of medical records is coming. It is mandated by the health control law (a.k.a Obamacare). All providers must implement Electronic Medical Records systems by 2014 or face penalties. And the systems must support standard interfaces so that data mining can be performed on them, supposedly for fraud audits but along with being a huge invasion of privacy its really a way to control who gets what health care. The data will used to by bureacrats to determine what types a care are appropriate (in other words they will be used my the death panels) and I have no doubt whatever that "studies" of the data will show that preferred victim groups such as blacks and gays are being underserved and providers will be sued and have to practice affirmative action medicine, and that just scratches the surface of the horrors hidden in the depths of health control law.

14 ways, is that so? Well I got one that over rules your 14. He ain´t got no authority over
our guns in any way shape or form. If your state legislatures and in particular your county Sheriff, goes along with any gun grab, them they side with tyranny and deserve to be treated as domestic enemies.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent
Doesn´t Lead to ´Elevated or Even
Rational´ Obamacare Opposition
NewsBusters, by Tim Graham    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:47:27 PM     Post Reply
At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:36:25 PM     Post Reply
When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

Washington Post hires ultra-liberal former

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This Earth Day we need to consider new ways to unleash a new wave of activism to tackle today’s long list

When she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton instituted a Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review. The first one was completed in December 2010. Nearly four years later, AP reporter Matt Lee asked State Department Jen Psaki to name one thing that Clinton’s QDDR accomplished. Just one. She can’t. LEE: “Off the top of your head, can you name one tangible achievement that the last QDDR resulted in?” PSAKI: “Well Matt, obviously it’s in an extensive, expansive process.” LEE: “So no.” PSAKI: “We’re looking at how it was done last time.” LEE: “Just one.” PSAKI: “I know, I’m making an important

Obama to free hundreds of drug
felons under clemency rules

sentences from ´War on Drugs´ era

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.
