Obama Call For Change
Exploits School Massacre

Investors Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/17/2012 7:28:44 PM

By using the massacre in Newtown, Conn., to fire up the left´s anti-liberty agenda, President Obama and other prominent liberal Democrats are taking Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel´s infamous maxim — "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste" — to new depths. At a Sunday night prayer vigil in Newtown, the president delivered words that on their face appear soothing, hope-filled and decisive — exactly what´s expected of presidential leadership. "These tragedies must end," he said. "And to end them, we must change." But when Obama repeats that single-worded slogan from his presidential campaign,

I love this phoney Obama. He goes on tv and does the big tearful act. This is after he and Holder already sent real assault guns across the border that have killed thousands of Mexicans and Americans

I was bemused by the early comments on FNC as to the propriety of NerØbama´s speech. Non-political, my foot. We know what these radicals are and what to expect. They lie. They simply - lie.

As to the GOP response to this and the budget issues, I see only two outcomes: either they will grow a pair and shut down the government to assert their authority in Congress to rein in this pResident, or they will cave. The former will be painful for all of us. The latter threatens the viability of the Constitution itself, and probably spells the end of the GOP, among other things.

Not happy thoughts for this Christmas season. Be in the holiday spirit regardless, and take comfort that there is yet a Higher Authority.

The liberal Democrats and Progressives used to call for banning "assault rifles" but now they are calling for banning "assault weapons" that will essentially include all semi-automatic weapons that could possibly utilize a clip or a magazine that could hold over 10 rounds. Such a broad definition of an "assault weapon" would include just about all semi-automatic rifles and handguns.

All a gun ban would do is create an underground network for their distribution and sale. People in the inner city don´t go to Walmart or Dick´s sporting goods and buy a gun,they´re distributed in an underground network.

I think one thing you could do as part of the background check is get 3 other adults over the age of 21 to vouch for the buyer.It would be a simple questionnaire like have you seen so and so display violent behavior.

Wouldn´t have helped in this case by maybe in Va..tech,Arizona and Col.where I´m thinking they all bought stuff over the internet.

To answer partially one question, we and Univision know that F&F weapons were used to murder 16 teens at a party in a city near the Texas border. Holder and hussein know this too, as does fat Nadler and Axeldick.

But these weren´t "our children, in our schools, in our cities". Though they were killed by Holder and hussein´s guns, the killings were "under the radar", so there´s nothing to exploit. Not a word from the Brady bunch, or the slime-infested drive-by media.

YET this shooter was sanctioned to have guns by the US Government ! Since he is still considered to be IN the military, he is drawing a check every month, paid for by taxpayers. 3 years and no trial!

How many of these tragedies have taken place with this horrible man in office? Three? Four? (Not that anyone ever points that out.) And the gun-control crowd still thinks he´s actually serious about doing something? Please. Ultimately, nothing will actually get done because Democrats in Congress know they´d lose their seats if it did -- and because gun sales go through the roof after one of these horrible incidents. They fear the millions of law-abiding gun owners more than the evil and/or insane people who commit these atrocities.

Obama is absolutely correct. We do need to change something.

When faced with an active shooter, standard police procedure used to be to wait for the arrival of a SWAT team. Columbine turned that on its head. Modern police training now says the first officer on the scene should hunt and eliminate the shooter as quickly as possible. Much like the military, officers are trained to run to the gunfire. To attack without delay. Perhaps it is time to rethink our school procedures as well.

Perhaps schools, even elementary schools, should train their students to attack the attackers, rather than to run away and hide and wait to become victims. They don’t have to take out the shooter, just delay him long enough for the gym teacher to arrive with a baseball bat. If a potential shooter, even a deranged one, knew that attacking a grade school meant arousing 300 raging little killer bees, it might make him think twice about it.

Women have been taught for decades in self defense classes to bite, scratch, pinch, poke eyes, everything BUT be passive. Fight for your life. Why not give our children the same chance?

The MSM, Obama, Feinstein, Bloomberg et al, inter-alia are all racists

Yeah? Why do you say that?

504 murders of young black men so far 2012 just in Chicago. Up 25% from 2011.

Since 1976, the number of young black men age 14 and up murdered in America? 220,000. By other young black men

Add in black females 14 and up killed by other blacks same time period and the total rises to a staggering 300,000. 8,500 per year. 23 per day for 35 years.

A Newton Conn school shooting every day in Black America. (crickets)

No word from Obama or Feinstein on this.

Just fiery rhetoric political talk talk when white suburban kids are killed.

He got caught before Fast and Furious could have it´s desired result so now he has to resort to exploiting this tragedy.

Republicans should exploit it for changing the mental health laws. Make it easier to commit the mentally ill to institutions.

Never let a tragedy go to waste...

I hate to admit I have reached the point where I even think this, but I find the timing and nature of this attack kind of suspicious.

Obama didn´t even wait a day after the election to restart the UN gun ban treaty talks, and it was massacres of young children in schools that finally pushed Australia and (formerly) Great Britain to practically ban all hand guns.

Could this have been a setup to further Zippy´s gun ban agenda? Before you say I´m insane, remember this admin had no problem killing hundreds of Mexicans for just that purpose.

Ok, I´ll go adjust my tinfoil hat now.

Next up, blame car manufacturers for all deadly car accidents, knife makers for stabbings - all the while ignoring the violence to the unborn and to the violence in his "hometown" and on our southern border. Selective outrage while still in campaign mode.

Oh, no. It´s so hard to remember which guns we don´t like! Help me remember, Valerie: killing Chicago children nightly--that´s okay, right? And sending guns into Mexico to kill our own border agents--that´s fine, too right? And it´s okay to sell arms to Syria through Libya, even if our own diplomats and soldiers die to cover it up, right? It´s those weapons legally sold in our country to our own citizens that I want to get rid of. Is that right? Valerie? Valerie?

#15.. and when a divorce or relationship goes really bad, when someone simply holds a grudge, when humans act like the selfish nasty petty souls they so often are and "put" someone on your list that doesn´t belong there, then what? The government gets involved, homes get invaded, children get taken away, rights get tossed out the window, people get harassed and labelled and worse. The only ones that profit are the lawyers. This has happened to parents when a neighbor with a grudge reports them to government child protective services for child abuse that never happened. It is a nightmare.

Sorry, your plan is shortsighted and in the end in no way takes into account that as much good as your plan might do, it has just as much possibility for being exploited for evil.

Liberals have lately been employing a political term of abuse that was once mainly a weapon of the right. Speaking at a Democratic fundraiser on Wednesday in Houston, President Obama described laws that he said restrict voting rights as “un-American.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) earlier this year described conservative activist billionaires Charles and David Koch as “un-American.” And amid a rambunctious meeting of the House Oversight Committee last month, the panel´s top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) described the conduct of his Republican counterparts led by chairman Darrell Issa (Calif.) as

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

The departure of Kathleen Sebelius from President Barack Obama’s cabinet removes a focal point for criticism over Obamacare’s troubled rollout, right at a moment when the White House can blunt attacks with enrollment numbers that exceeded targets. Senate confirmation hearings on the president’s choice to succeed Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary, budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell, will give Republicans days of media exposure for their criticism of a program that remains unpopular. Those hearings will now be held months ahead of midterm congressional elections, helping diminish the impact on voters. Sebelius’s departure also addresses demands from some Democrats for a change

BUNKERVILLE -- The gathering of rancher Cliven Bundy´s cattle in northeast Clark County has been stopped by the director of the Bureau of Land Management. Bundy is meeting this morning with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie to discuss a possible solution to his dispute with the BLM. Metro Officer Jesse Roybal confirmed that Gillespie was in the Bunkerville area this morning to meet with Bundy. The BLM had been using contract cowboys to round up Bundy´s 900 head of cattle that have been grazing over 600,000 square acres in northeast Clark County for more than 20 years without his payment of grazing fees.

Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

Two months ago, a petition bearing more than 110,000 signatures was delivered to The Post, demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming. The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition. The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian. It
