There was something nauseating about the way Barack Obama surrounded himself with children as he unveiled his gun control plans. It looked like emotional blackmail. "Look these innocent babes in the face and tell them guns are good" – that was the implicit message of this cynical, innocence-exploiting press conference, which brought to mind one of the late Wacko Jacko´s weird child-centred peace concerts more than it did a serious Lincoln-style presidential address. What Obama and his advisers appear to have overlooked is that it doesn´t matter one jot what children think of guns, or anything else
"Look these innocent babes in the face and tell them guns are good"
When someone uses a shield, human or otherwise, they should not look surprised when someone actually Strike at it. I told a lady in my office yesterday that I would run down those cute, tow-headed little tykes with a 4x4 if it was necessary to protect the 2nd Amendment...NOTHING is more important than the 2nd Amendment, not those kids, nothing, because nothing else can take place without it. She agreed.
There...I said it. People are getting tired and fed up with constantly being ground at by Progressive attacks. Soon the war of words is going to be replaced with something else.
Obamao, the abortion baby killer. Obamao. the alla akbar killer. Obamao, the send our kids to war killer. Only way to protect kids from these planned events is to make schools safe, like office buildings, movie studios, large industrial sites, any shooting range, even many neighborhoods. And what measures does one take in these relatively safe environments? So damn simple, armed guards, also really helpful, citizens carrying concealed weapons Remember when certain airlines had concealed to carry guys on board. You did not know who had a gun. The licensed to carry guy could not be detected. Schools can do that with any teacher who wants to qualify to carry. What could be safer? AND, the funds for each school security need not ever come from the bloated in debt Fed, the money can come from each local education board simply by firing their lazy no good Bored of Education "executive" non teachers in their luxurious buildings downtown....that´s where there´s plenty of wasted money and bloated pensions to grab.
Ask yourself why now? Heading into his 2nd term why would he go after the guns citizens would use to protect themselves from government goons? We don´t need to look any further than Venezuela for an answer. It is imperative to either confiscate these rifles or ban ammo for them. I´m expecting the latter.
Obama is so pathetic when he attempts to show any emotion around people. He just can´t do it. He is terribly ill at ease and awkward. He only comes alive and is true to himself when he is being his arrogant argumentative condescending self. This is the real Obama. He uses anything in an attempt to pluck at people´s easily duped heart strings. He should be ridiculed for bringing those children up on the stage with him. HE is the one who looked small. He needs to be a man and make his case and not use children to bolster his arguments.
So glad I am not the only one who has been noticing the creepy factor lately. He has to make announcements about how he can perform behaviours that are normal for other people, like being nice to Republicans. Very creepy.
Where were his own daughters for this photo op? Are they not important enough to be part of the protected class? This is the real picture of the state of our union. And that´s creepy enough. God Bless our Military Heroes!
Here´s a good part: "This is probably the first time in history (and let´s hope it´s the last) that a 200-year-old constitution fought for tooth-and-catapult might be rewritten on the basis of what a precocious eight-year-old felt as she watched the evening news.
Modus: Turn the US upsdide down: let foreigners vote in our elections; let the UN tell us what to do; pay for expensive projects in other countries that don´t benefit Americans; let children change the Constitution, etc.
Someone should draw a cartoon of Obama driving a stolen ice cream van, hokey music playing, driving it through a school zone, hanging out the window with his tongue out offering brown cows, nutty buddies and fudge sickles to any kid who will be a prop in his little charade. It´s almost guaranteed the White House enticed those kids to come turn out somehow ie in exchange for an ice cream party or some other goody. Joe Camel got banned for influencing children but not this charlatan.
Obama shows his communist side everyday in the sense of NOT negotiating on anything and never taking no for answer. Kim Jong Il was exactly the same. Bamster is a robot on a mission, much like the never-give-up liquid metal cop from Terminator.
#18 puss would be a better word. As in a sore. Obama is in our face. He spits on America. He spits on us. I will bet you the busts in the WH is covered in spit or something else. The parents of these children should be arrested. And now I will have to hear about MLK for a month. I haven´t watched a news broadcast since Nov. 6. I just can´t take it.
As soon as I can pry the checkbook away from Mrs. Lakerman today, I plan to purchase a Ke-Tec 9mm, semiauto pistol, in the St. Trayvon model. Separate from that, I am still vexed and miffed about President Hologram´s high fiving of those four chillun on stage. Would he high five chillun at a funeral? But at least he didn´t try the ghetto belly bump, so popular among football players...
Hitler stated, "My magnificent youngsters! Are there finer ones anywhere in the world? What material! With them I can make a new world." 0bama and his regime are the most dangerous to ever hold the White House. It´s so distressing that there are so few of us who recognize it.
I would love for someone to ask for those letters and post them. Also, am I the only one to notice that he had racially correct representation behind him as always. Funny how that worked out. Only adds to the phony theatrics of this WH.
The use of children for politicat purposes reminds me of someone else, back in the 1930´s, that did the same thing. Is that what is in our not to distant future?
As for the 2nd Amendment, I wouldn´t be the bit surprised that there will be some "progressive" start harping about how the 2nd allows for citizens to own firearms, but doesn´t mention the ammunition for it. So, it would be just hunk dory for the government to outlaw the manufacture of ammunition that is not specifically for the military and/or governmnet agencies.

Obama claims to support the Second Amendment. He´s a liar. He just doesn´t have the guts to tell you. All you have to do is look at statements he made and his votes as an Illinois State Senator. " I don´t believe anyone (private citizen) should be allowed to own a gun."
I do not give a flying rat´s arse what an 8 year old has to say about anything. IMHO this country is going to hell in a handbasket because for the past 30 years parents have coddled, cajoled, and convinced non adults into believing somehow they are special and entitled. What ever happened to "Children are to be seen and not heard"?
Notice in the video he motions for the child on his left to step forward as he signed the document, and when the frightened child didn’t move he coldly shrugged and continued signing. Then his hugs of them looked like a star wars robot with a dying battery.
Obama and Stalin both used children as props in their photos. Joe Stalin always had that sweet look and we know what Stalin did. Soviet propaganda was so effective that when Stalin died in 1953 women wept for days and several mothers committed suicide. Senator Obama voted four times against providing emergency medical aid for babies who survived abortions and that makes him an abortionist. Obama using children as props in his gun control photo shoot makes me want to laugh.
Did he tout the fatherless children of the 1596 American soldiers and Marines that have died in Afghanistan since he became CINC ? Or the fatherless children of the 264 soldiers and Marines that have died in Iraq since he made Valerie Jarrett the CINC ? Politics aside , the guy has always behaved in a bizarre and inappropriate way , which has always been ignored and covered up by the MTM. The MTM- Manti Te´o Media has foisted an imaginary president on the citizens of the US.
when I saw Obama hug the kids like that , I thought wow this is one cold fish guy. No wonder the one daughteer is surly and the tall one is so "backed-off". That is one cold-fish family. As far as obama´s plan for taking up guns:he wants a flashy,non-working success to signal to His Morons tht -Wow lookee what I am doing-I am targttingthe Rights sacred cows. No matter if it is all b.s., the Morons appreciate the bling. As far as the rest of us, he wants someone to take a swing on him or shoot at him. He is riding us. Axel and Jarett and the rest of the directing Junta know the Obamacare thing is collapsing and will need a dodge to get it on track. An attack would do it. Remember the entire National Guard of Guam is here on manuevers, that largest peace-time movement of troops. they don´t know America really.And the Press won´t cover it.
Lately I´ve seen couple of articles questioning where our country is moving: towards "European style socialism" or fascism? I was commenting for several years that it will be fascism. On the other hand lenin/stalin/hitler/mao/pol_pot and african cannibals are not that much different, no matter who is owning the industry. But, all of them LOVE(-d) being photographed with children. You can find online many posters of hitler, stalin, mao (you can continue this list) with kids in their hands and smiles on their ugly mugs (although they were photoshopped to look handsome.
Shame on Mommie and Daddie for using their kiddies as dictation equipment to advance their own antigun agenda. As far as I know an "assault rifle" is a gun that can fire in semi automatic mode as well as full automatic mode. To my knowledge you can not buy a full auto gun anywhere. Just because they "look" like a military full auto assault weapon does not make the a true asault weapon. You can take a VW chasis and put a Corvette body on it. That does not make it a real Corvette does it. Plus from what I heard, the assault weapon looking gun the shooter used to kill kids and adults actually jammed and almost all of the school kids and adults killed were killed with a shotgun. Let´s start talking about stiffer and longer minimum mandatory prison sentences for using a gun in any crime. How about say 50 years minimum prison for using a gun? Deterrence is the first place I would start the discussion on. How about the emphasis be on criminal control laws? Guns are inanimate objects, human beings pull the trigger.
During the 2008 presidential campaign, gun rights author and scholar John Lott recounted meeting Barack Obama for the first time while he was a lecturer at University of Chicago.
When the two met, Lott’s reputation on guns preceded him, and Lott claims Obama said, “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.”
Read that again, and let it soak in; Barack Obama reportedly said, “I don’t think people should be able to own guns.” In my correspondence with Lott, he stood by his story.
And there’s little reason to doubt Lott’s account, especially when you take Obama’s history of anti-gun legislation into account.
Consider these examples:
1. In a 1998 questionnaire for the Illinois state legislature, Obama said he wanted to “ban the sale or transfer of all sorts of semi-automatic weapons.”
2. From 1998-2001 Obama was on the board of the Joyce Foundation, the “major funder for gun-control research” at that time.
3. Obama opposes concealed carry and always has (every state but Illinois disagrees with him).
4. Obama only sees two “legitimate” purposes for guns: “hunting and target shooting.” This means using guns for self defense is not legitimate. And this goes a long way in explaining Obama’s past support of laws banning the use of guns for self-defense in Illinois, even in one’s own home.
But all these things and more are simply symptoms of a bigger issue—namely, that Obama doesn’t think people should be able to own guns in the first place.
Lott believes Obama’s lip service to the Second Amendment is simply part of an overarching Democrat strategy set forth by pollster Mark Penn, which instructs Dems to say they support the Second Amendment in order get elected and then to do everything they can to chip away at it via legislation and regulation once they’re in office.
Democrats always exploit children when in danger of losing an argument, and there are plenty of willing lady parts willing to make their children serve The Party. Did anyone else notice the spelling on those anti gun letters? Or the way they exactly melded their points with Obie´s? Or the painstakingly ACCURATE memorization of said letters during the Obamagasm Fest? Have no doubt, the individuals that call themselves their "mothers" tossed those kids cynically to service The Party.
American presidents should avoid shaking the hand of dictators, especially those that have American blood on theirs. One example of many: Raul Castro was Minister of Defense in 1996 when Cuban Air Force MiGs, cold-bloodedly and over international airspace, destroyed two civilian U.S. airplanes with four American rescue workers on board. President Clinton rightly condemned the attack as cowardly, while Raul Castro decorated his pilots for bravery. That incident alone illustrates the difference between the two systems that are embodied in the two leaders. President Obama seems unaware of the importance of his office or of the mantle of honor
Before we all forget about the latest spat between Sen. Elizabeth Warren and the banks, before it’s downgraded to an anecdote in Game Change III: The Changeling, let’s reflect on how the media got dragged into it and covered the story on Warren’s terms. Short version: Two honchos at the center-left think tank Third Way wrote a Wall Street Journal op-ed warning that a proposal to expand Social Security was foolishness and “economic populism is a dead end for Democrats.” A clutch of progressives—or, if you prefer, economic populists—demanded that elected Democrats distance themselves from the op-ed. The senior senator
Fresh questions about Steve Jobs’ liver transplant have been raised after it emerged that the doctor who performed the surgery spent two years in the Memphis, Tenn., house Jobs bought for his recovery. Dr. James Eason, who performed the March 2009 liver transplant, moved into the palatial house Jobs bought for his recovery just a few months after the operation, according to a report. It isn’t the first time questions have been raised over whether Jobs, a California resident, received an unfair advantage in landing the Memphis transplant. Eason lived in the house in midtown Memphis for two years before
Dan Rather was once among the most powerful figures in American media. Which is why watching him today is a particularly poignant and painful thing. Consider Mr. Rather’s appearance with CNN’s Piers Morgan Monday night. When asked about the recent, erroneous Benghazi report on 60 Minutes that led to a leave of absence for reporter Lara Logan, Rather compared that story to the one that ruined his career: “With our story, the one that led to our difficulty, no question the story was true. What the complaint… was ‘Okay, your story was true, but the way you got to the truth was
The presidential helicopter landed in the small town of Orania, South Africa. It was August, 1995. The President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, had come for tea. Tea with Betsie Verwoerd, the 94-year old widow of South Africa’s former Prime Minister, Hendrik Verwoerd. It was Mrs. Verwoerd’s husband who, as noted here in this story from the Christian Science Monitor, was known as the “architect of apartheid” — the disgraceful policy of racial segregation that Mandela was famously imprisoned for fighting. The reason for the overwhelming tidal wave of emotion and celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy in South
If you run a police state such as North Korea (a.k.a. “The People’s Republic of North Korea”) publicity is almost always bad, so you avoid it if possible. There are occasional exceptions and the North Korea authorities spotted one a month ago. A guided tour group was about to leave after a week’s visit when, in a last-minute review of the passenger list, an operative noticed that one of the visitors had not only been a U.S. Army veteran of the Korean War, but also may have been in counter-intelligence. With that, they took Merrill Newman, a retired California businessman,
President Barack Obama’s expected 10-minute speech at Nelson Mandela’s memorial will cost taxpayers at least $500,000 per minute. That’s not counting any cakes and coffee he and his inner circle consume aboard Air Force One during the 18,000-mile round trip to Johannesburg, via Dakar, in Senegal. The 28-hour two-way flight will cost $5 million because the four-engined Boeing 747 costs roughly $180,000 an hour to operate, according to a May 2012 report by the Congressional Research Service. The cost includes jet fuel and subsequent maintenance of the aircraft’s engines, electronics and hotel-class facilities. Obama has been accompanied by the First Lady, Attorney General Eric
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
