As a society, our first task must be to care for our children -- to shield them from harm and give them the tools they need not only to pursue their dreams, but to help build this country. That is how we will be judged. And in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown, it´s clear we have a long way to go. That´s why, last month, I asked Vice President Biden to lead an effort to come up with concrete steps we can take right now to keep our kids safe, help prevent mass shootings,
Comments: Oh puhleeze! 0bama on high gear campaign mode. The last sentence is hilarious: "Barack Obama is president of the United States." Stunning.
Hey nitwit: 1) The previous assault weapons ban was shown to have zero effect on crime rates. 2) Violent crime rates in the US have halved over the last 20 years coinciding with nationwide easing of gun restrictions and concealed carry rights.
Barky is not interested in protecting your kids. If he was his proposals would be completely different, as: Guarding your children as his already are. Locking up lunatics. Making MHP´s more responsible for reporting lunatics. (Doctors have the authority and responsibility to take away your driving privileges. There is a parallel here) Making law enforcement (like sheriff Dupnik the Dipstick in tucson) responsible for enforcing existing laws. Dismantle the gun-running holder DoJ. What he is interested in is disarming the general population, like his (and valjar´s) mentor and hero, chairman mao.
The first task of a society is not to protect its children. It is to protect itself from all enemies foreign and domestic. Barack Obama is an enemy of American society. He is a far greater danger to America and America´s children than the rare, isolated spree killer. Barack Obama does not respect or like America. He has promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America."
If we are going to begin universal background checks on gun buyers, it is certainly time -past time- to do a background check on the individual calling himself Barack Obama. It is simply amazing that a man about whom Americans know practically nothing that has been documented continues to occupy the presidency of the United States. If the Republic survives, as it probably will, future historians will look back, scratch their heads, and devote their careers to attempting to answer the question of how such a thing could have happened. Did the American people simply go mad for a period of 8 years? How could they have done such a thing to themselves? Didn´t they realize that the presidency is too important to entrust to a mysterious stranger who doesn´t share American values? Where was the watchdog press, the famous Fourth Estate, in the nation´s hour of need?
Young as they are, those with baby brothers and sisters at home, would be absolutely traumatized to know that as a senator Obama championed partial birth abortion, the brutal slaughter of babies who make it through abortion.
“President Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act four times, horrifyingly voting against protecting babies who survived abortion and voting in favor of leaving them to die."
So murdering children through abortions is ok, according to the empty suit.
Why didn´t he save taxpayers some money and just ask Malia what she thought about Sandy Hook? /s Incompetents always act this way when their fecklessness is on parade - they show great concern for things that they have no power over to pretend that they are vital. Meanwhile, Iran continues its nuclear quest, virtually unabated; China steals our military know-how and is building a large salt water navy; our economy remains stagnant; unemployment leaves a demoralized and frightened citizenry and the very children he met with yesterday are being robbed of their futures.
"...our first task must be to care for our children -- to shield them from harm..." If you really believe that Mr. President, then abolish Roe v Wade and save 330,000 babies a year, not just a few. Hypocrit of the first class this guy.
Yep. It is past time. The killer of school-age children MUST be abolished. It is time to ban school buses, and ban them NOW. We cannot sit idly by and watch group after group slaughtered by this device which has no conscience.
As to senseless slaughter: just how many individuals have been killed in Chicago since Zero took office? And what kind of gun laws does Chicago have?
What a monstrous perversion we have here. The nation is mobilized for the purpose of what?
Protecting the federal government, that´s what!
Go read your Declaration of Independence.
Armed guards will have to search every domicile and place of work, in order to end this terrible scourge!
What about the unconscionable, immoral debt burden he has laid on the heads of each of these innocent children? Will he form a Children´s Shield of them and say "I enslaved these Innocents into endless debt"?
"Last time we took away some of your gun rights and now we are asking for you to give a little bit more, then when that isn´t enough for us, we have you give up a little bit more, until you have no rights left, but you didn´t notice. Oh,...and it´s for the children." /s
The arrogance and ignorance of 0bama is appalling. He sends his girls to an expensive private school that has several armed guards with real guns and real bullets. 0bama just changed the law for him to have secret service protection for the rest of his life. Before he changed this law, he and Mooch would only have security for ten years after out of office. And you know these secret service all have real guns with real bullets. Yet 0bama is such a hypocrite that he wants NO guns in the schools of we commoners. No, we should not have guns, just 0bama and his girls. What is wrong with these horrid and wretched people?
Now is the time that 0bama and Mooch should stop taking expensive lavish and luxurious vacations that piles on debt that our children will have to pay off. 0bama should stop spending our children´s money.
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. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
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
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
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
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
