Obama plans to surround
himself with children during
gun control announcement

Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/15/2013 1:33:24 PM

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced this afternoon that President Obama will unveil a “concrete package” of gun control proposals including assault weapons bans, high capacity ammunition magazine bans, and closing loopholes on background checks. Carney said that the president will be joined by Vice President Joe Biden as well as children who wrote to the president after the Newtown shootings. “They will be joined by children around the country expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents,” Carney confirmed. President Obama specifically mentioned children during his

Comments:
These people are just beyond anything I have ever seen in my lifetime. 0bama and his regime have taken political hypocrisy and shamelessness to a level never seen before. The only thing missing from this charade is the parents of those who lost children at Sandy Hook. Don´t think they wouldn´t parade them around if they could. In the meantime, they are destroying the freedoms of every American in this country. Some of them are too stupid to know it.

How about bring in rfk´s children and grandchildren. Remember he was killed with .22 short revolver. Are those little weapons to be banned too? How about James and Sarah Brady? I´m sure they are available as props.

Will all these children and their parents be flown in to DC aboard the fleet of government Gulfstream jets?
Will they be quartered at DC hotels?
If so, it will be a very expensive propaganda opportunity.

He´s taking a lesson from terrorists who place children in harm´s way.

By the way - when these children become adults, how will they be able to defend themselves?

What a vile person he is. He´s goading violence on purpose. The Democrats aren´t content to be awash in the blood of those murdered in "gun free zones", they want war right her in our own land.

Remember all the questionable things Lincoln did during the Civil War? This is exactly what they want.

Another Alinsky tactic. The left has been doing this for years. Hillary tried the same thing with her healthcare debacle, I recall a few of the kid´s and their parent´s were exposed as frauds. 0bama has used props throughout his career/campaign. He never gets called on it by the MSM. The left is morally bankrupt, manipulative and condescending. He only plays to the dummies.

Straight out of the Soviet Union, Communist China, North Korea, and Cuba propaganda playbook to use children as props.

Anyone out there care to argue that Obama and his fellow democrats aren´t hard core communists whose goal is impose a totalitarian rule over this country?

Obama seems bent on fomenting revolt and a second Civil War. Where are the Republicans in Congress. As some point they have to stand up, regardless of the media consequences, and act like true patroiots, whatever the cost.

The GOP ought to strap on a pair and use the same tactic for the millions and millions of fatherless children exposed to poverty due to the left´s institutionalization of the welfare state and thousands of children murdered by urban street gangs which are the result of those same policies.

With a population of 360 million people, the number of nuts will grow.
Obama has NO right to punish the many for a few.
Obama has no right to violate the Constitution. Keep and bear arms is pretty clear to me. At the time those words were written, citizens had the same weapons as the regular army.
Citizens should be armed to protect against a tyrannical gov´t..water pistols wouldn´t work.

Why would anyone oppose universal background checks? When the intent is not ´background checks´ but to be able to locate every single gun in the U.S. If they know exactly who has what, it is much easier to confiscate them. That´s the real intent of the government. To get the background check, you have to tell them the buyer´s name, address, SSN, type of gun & serial number. You think all of that is ´forgotten´ by the checker? If so, you live in a very simple universe.

How about someone in the WH Press Pool pose this question: "Mr. President, between 2006 and 2012, the average number killed resulting from gun violence was 114 children. Would you like to comment on the over one million children who were killed last year as a result of abortions?" Any WH Press reporter who asks that question will never report on the WH again, but that individual will forever be remembered for standing up to this absolute empty suit, lying poor excuse for a human being who thinks he´s the government who rules all, including peoples´ religious beliefs.

I can´t speak for Olivia Harrison, George´s wife but I wonder if she wished her and George had a gun when they were broken into in England. In the early 90´s a crazed guy with a knife entered George´s home and stabbed him repeatedly as Olivia hit the intruder with whatever she could get her hands on. By law if the did have a gun and shot the guy, they would be the ones in trouble. That´s where we´re headed.

Apparently 0bama´s warped arguments against the Constitution & Bill of Rights isn´t winning the debate regarding the Second Amendment nor any of the rest of Liberty´s Constitutional principles. Whenever the statist dem pols can´t flim/flan the American people, they ALWAYS resort to using children as their tools of choice! Aided & abetted by the dems´ lsm, 0bama´s shameless use of children as his political pawns continues. ...How many times can he get away with this redundant con? How dispicable.

What kind of U.S. President would even think of infringing against any American´s inherent Constitutional Rights? ..And use theatrical staging of innocent children to do it?!!

Parents who allow their children to be used as political show ponies are unfit for the role. If your ideas require props then they are not strong ideas to begin with.

#17 provides some levity in the mischaracterization of the NRA and gun owners´ positions as well as a misstatement of what the president and his star chamber intend. Hint: legislation i.e. proper law-making isn´t a part of it.

These background check loopholes simply don´t exist but they seem to be a bottomless honey trap for people who want to sound intelligent about the subject.

#17, if you are going to be that dense about the Second Amendment´s purpose and context, do yourself a favor and quit while you´re behind.

It´s not complicated. The Bill of Rights is devoted to protecting the individual from government. Only the gullible believe that the Framers would write down the First Amendment, veer off towards conscription for national defense in the Second, then return to individual rights for the rest of the document. No, the Second is about resistance against tyranny just as the Fifth, Fourth and others are. Parsing its language is a diversionary tactic, nothing more.

Obama has nothing but pure hatred for this country. I believe that he is a Muslim and is deliberately doing everything he can to destroy it and with help and cover from the msm, his Palace Guards, is succeeding. Anyone who speaks out against him is destroyed. The GOP has been neutered. I honestly don´t see how he can be stopped. To quote Henri the cat, I´m surrounded by morons.

#17 is wrong of course. The 2nd ammendment is there to defend against tyranny. It´s purpose is to intimidate government. Accodding to James Madison the "Militia" mentioned in the 2nd ammendment is the "people" as a whole. The 2nd amendment is there to defend all the other ammendments and the constitution itself. Once Barry Soetoro was allowed to get away with his ineligibility the socialists knew they could do anything they want. a.k.a. tyranny.
I hope and pray it doesn´t happen but we could very well be headed for civil war.

I know this sounds horrible but i still have my doubts on Sandy Hook. It has so many gaps and holes in the story. Actors hired out of CO. People that recognize a kid in the picture and say she is from so and so and was killed in another accident. The list goes on and on.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Dem Rep: Obamacare will bury us

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Father Ray Kelly, the singing Irish priest who shot to fame with his wedding ceremony cover of “Hallelujah,” will perform in New York, on Tuesday May 13, to support the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform. On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth. As his video gathered traction online Fr Kelly was a guest on RTE’s “Late Late Show.” He told host Ryan Tubridy that he hoped his new found fame

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

The ´soft despotism´ of regulation

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

The Folly Of The Bundy Ranch Rebellion

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
