W.H. Releases Letters from Little
Kids Pleading for Gun Control

The Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:PChristopher, 1/16/2013 8:22:31 AM

The White House today released letters from little kids pleading for gun control, just hours before President Obama is to release a comprehensive proposal to limit guns and ammunition. The letters were released to the Associated Press in what appears to be a coordinated effort to help shape the narrative the day of Obama´s announcement.

Comments:
Oh, how sweet...I´m sure they just copied whatever teacher wrote on the board for them...if they were even from kids at all.

I have four granddaughters, ages 10 to 22. I don´t think it would ever have occurred to any of them to write to the president about guns. They might have written about any number of other subjects, but guns????

Does this remind anyone of Jimmy Carter´s supposed bedtime conversation with a very young Amy about "nuclear proliferation"?

Just when you think the agitator-in-chief cannot possibly get any more insultingly cynical, he springs the old "for the children ploy". Shades of Saddam Hussein asking one of HIS human-shield-children if he had "enough milk". Like Hussein, the pathetic ´dear leader of the left´ has NO shame. What a terrible time in the history of this country as we painfully see once again that Elections really DO have consequences.

Get use to it - 4 more years of the most narcissistic human being in America doing whatever he can to ´create his legacy´...

So, wonder if Obama turned those letters over to the cops - as was done by one high school who told the students to write ´anti-violence pledges´ - which were then handed over to police for potential ´crime solving´ via handwriting samples?

Nothing like using a ´tragedy´ to convince the kids to hand over evidence w/o a warrant, eh?

Noted elsewhere today - the White House has just ´doubled´ the required signatures on petitions filed with ´em - before an answer is required. Guess they think a petition for Impeachment couldn´t top that number?

As if...

Little children are being exploited. By the president of the United States.

They do not understand the Constitution. They do not understand mental illness. They do not understand anything that goes into this complicated issue.

Their emotions are being manipulated and used to further an agenda.

This is despicable.

Commenters are ignoring fact that surely 60% or more of these children voted for Obama in 2012. They were not aware that the local Obama for America office used their names, but those votes still counted in the hundreds of voting precincts that went 100% for Obama.

So if they can vote without knowing, they can stand around Obama without knowing the Consitutiion.

Seriously, Obama use of children is an eerie update of Michael Jackson. Weird that the WH would do a reprise of the Neverland Ranch.

An understanding of current social issues are a part of many states´ education standards. So, letters about gun control from children don´t surprise me at all. The social studies lesson was extended to a writing/language lesson and with the inauguration coming up, the President is already the focus of many classrooms. Wonder how many teachers will earn some extra merit pay if one of their student´s letters was chosen.

What "uncoached" 8 year old routinely uses the word recommend? Next, we alredy have laws saying we cannot own machine guns, enforce the laws we have. Also, if you wnt to really STOP the violence, get the guns out of the criminals who are NOT suppose to have them and commit 99.9% of the gun crime. Why do they have no answer when we ask them about taking guns out of the hands of criminals??? These letters sound like they were written by parents or teachers and they used the child´s name to do it. How about if we get conservative parents to get THEIR kids to write letter so obama will not infringe on our constitutional rights???? Will they post those letters???

this indoctrination we are seeing in our schools systems could have and should have been stopped long ago. I worked with my children every day to teach them the truth about this nation, not the garbage being spewed by teachers and new history books. It is amazing what you can find in the library in the old stacks and back rooms, history books written with in years of the events happening and compare them to what is written to day about the same event.

The names of the six-member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order, records show. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, who had previously ordered the jurors´ identifying information be kept confidential, granted access to the names in a ruling March 21. Zimmerman´s defense asked the judge in June to keep the names secret until six months after the verdict. (Snip) Attempts to reach the jurors by phone and in-person Thursday were unsuccessful.

President Barack Obama, his wife and the first daughters may have to cut their latest vacation short because of Russia’s meddling in Ukraine. The Obama family’s current plan for the weekend is to escape the cold, snowy doldrums of Washington, D.C. for some rest and relaxation in sunny Key Largo, Fla., reports the Daily Mail. However, despite Obama’s earnest invocations of international law, pro-Russian forces and the Russian government are making swift military and political moves in Ukraine’s Crimea region. Consequently, the Key Largo holiday could be in peril. “It is possible the president may return to the White House

Just ten percent of voters gave de Blasio the highest "excellent" mark while 29 percent categorized his performance as good.

Cop-killer case sinks
Obama Justice nominee

Senators blocked President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division Wednesday in a bipartisan filibuster, with opponents saying his history defending a convicted cop-killer in the Supreme Court made him a poor choice. The defeat of Debo P. Adegbile, who as an attorney for the NAACP backed appeals by former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, is a major blow to Mr. Obama. Democrats changed the rules last year to overcome filibusters with just 50 votes, but Majority Leader Harry Reid couldn’t even muster all of his own troops Wednesday.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

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.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
