Vice President Joe Biden revealed that President Barack Obama might use an executive order to deal with guns. "The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executives orders, there´s executive action that can be taken. We haven´t decided what that is yet. But we´re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required." Biden said that this is a moral issue and that "it´s
Comments: No!! We know that charlatan isn´t "considering" it. He wants to do it. We knew something like this would happen from the vile 0bama. And by the time any lawsuit would wind it´s way through the court we will be doomed. I don´t know how much more of this I can take.
Government, at all levels, is signally its belief that total collapse is on the horizon. When that happens, they want the only weapons to be theirs. This has nothing to do with Sandy Hook or any other person or incident. It has everything to do with our government telling us subtly that a major upheaval in society is imminent.
It´s so cute when ivory tower DC types think they can reverse the tides and stop the sunrise.
I wonder if the attorney general i.e. the top law enforcement officer will point out that the 2nd Amendment is still in force and still unambiguous, unlike those emanations and penumbras that gave us Roe v Wade?
It takes a special kind of nerve for the sleazy, backstabbing Biden to talk about morality but he´s no different from the rest of his fellow hypocrites.
i hope he does soon - we need to get this into the judicial system asap and put a stop to this nonsense before one of the good guys on the Supreme Court retires and Obama´s swing vote gets appointed. Even at that, it may be a close call, but at least we still have a chance. The Supremes are usually very committed to precedent and I would hope a good one would be set here. This would be an interesting test on several levels - 2nd Amendment, separation of powers. If adults are running the country it should fail on both counts - the question is whether or not we have competent leadership anywhere.
#7 - I´m not a conspiracy theorist either, but I do wonder why so many civilian branches of government (Post Office and Social Security Administration, for example) purchased millions of rounds of ammunition last year. Their explanations didn´t pass the smell test.
A student of law -- all the more a Constitutional scholar -- would know damned well that an Executive Order is not sufficient to amend the Constitution. If O´Biteme try this, it will essentially be declaring the Constitution void, which will officially announce a resumption of the Civil War.
Instead of a fight to free the blacks, this time will be a fight to enslave the people.
FTA: "As the president said, if you´re actions result in only saving one life, they´re worth taking.
That is the all-time most stupid liberal platitude. NO! If you´re actions result in only saving one life, they´re NOT worth taking.
The above comment by zippy quoted by biden is a ridiculous cliché. How about a ban on cars, booze, baseball bats, fireplace pokers, bicycles, flights of stairs, 2 X 4s, glue, airplanes, and so on? After all if those actions result in only saving one life . . . .
By threatening a gun control Executive Order, you have to wonder if the White House is already signaling that whatever they are proposing does not have a chance to pass the Congress.
There has got to be a lot of Democrats now in Congress from swing districts who know that they will not be re-electable if they support a big liberal Democrat ban on just about all modern semi-automatic handguns and rifles and a $200.00 tax per firearm on all the many millions of semi-automatic firearms already out there. It´s hard to believe that the Obama Administration and the liberal Democrats would be able to get such a gun control bill through the Republican controlled House of Representatives.
#21 there was a segment on this morning news on the problems local police are having with acquiring ammunition. I am sure that part of it is due to the government´s vast purchases, but that was not mentioned. It will not surprise me if there is an emergency order to highly limit the sale of ammunition as there is not enough for the police.
#2 He is intentionally inciting a Civil War. This is his end game with the American People. He well knows the Dollar is fixing to crash and the only way he can hold on to power is by seizing our weapons.He hates everything American and has promised his MB Buddies and the Blacks that he will get even with Whitey. It has been his plan all along. He is a clear and present danger to the security of this Nation. Where is the Military in all of this ?
2nd amendment says "The right of the people shall not be infringed-" says nothing about the Executive making all manner of orders to limit the rights of citizens. If Øbama can use executive orders to take our inalienable or God given, gun rights, there will be no limit to the rights he can take. The Constitution will, in that moment, die!
It appears to me they may want to ignite a war believing they can take out a third to half of us and then subdue the rest. They know they can´t get a law passed neutering the 2nd amendmant - So they force the hand of the citizen to cross the Rubicon.
Arrogance, evil and malevolency in their cup is rising towards overflow.
This will be enforced by up to 800 "TSA VIPR" teams which are fanning out across the country as this is being discussed. TSA VIPR teams also include local and state police who are receiving federal funding. Google "TSA VIPR" for huge surprises and get ready for a new America within 2 years time.
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. This is the law for all americans. President Obama, this includes you.
OMG is there ANYONE representing WE THE PEOPLE in DC? Where are the other branches of Govt? Where are the Republicans? I want to hear some Senators and Congresspeople screaming from the rooftops!!! Is it really going to take armed combat to fend off this Communist Pig and his army of thugs?
I get so irritated reading day after day after day about how much latitude that idiot gives himself with all his smugness and NOBODY calls him out.
Some people may think Alex Jones is a nut, but we need our representatives to start showing this level of seriousness and passion or there will be blood in the streets.
Will NEVER forgive idiot Americans who voted for this Piece of Crap!
There are approximately 125 million gun owners in the country, with approximately 300 million guns. The American military has been reduced to approximately 2 million, and the combined police forces of every municipality, county, and state would probably number around 7 to 10 million. I would guess that less than half of them would take up arms against their fellow Americans. Even if they did, they would be outnumbered 10 to one. Even with vastly superior firepower, those are not odds I would like to fight against.
Gun owners who are sitting on the fence won´t stay there long once they see their families, friends and neighbors being hauled off by jack-booted thugs with badges.
Luke 11:21 "When a strong man fully armed guards his own homestead, his possessions are undisturbed." It´s a shame pastors & priests have quit teaching the Bible like my pastor did for 50+ years. He faithfully taught from Greek & Hebrew, taught many lessons of history & during the military in WWII was a friend of Barry Goldwater´s which tells you he was very conservative - too bad we are missing those in our Republic congregations today. God will not put up with this "crap"!
An Executive Order would probably relate to ATF implementation of existing regulations, such as FFL holders. I read elsewhere that more than 100,000 firearms allegedly went missing from gun dealers last year. Probably annual ATF inventory audits are in the works with loss of of FFL if guns are unaccounted for and not reported missing.
I am hoping that the first action taken by the first duly elected Republican President is to rescind/repeal EVERY SINGLE executive order issued by our current President, who does not understand he was not elected "king".
So exactly what will the executive order do? Most likely, he will order the FBI to devote no time to respond to background checks so that no new gun permits can be issued. He´ll sic the EPA on the gun and ammo manufacturers so that they have to expend all their profits in legal fees, with the DOJ hoping the bankrupt them. He will allow the DOJ to sue the gun manufacturers, etc. He cannot possibly get a gun bill through Congress in the next two years, but he can use the feds and the public employee union members to do his bidding.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
Rep. Matt Cartwright, a member of President Obama´s Obamacare "strike team," says it´s a "good thing" that people are losing their old health care plans: "Because a lot of those people, they did have policies that didn´t meet the minimum standards. That´s just not a theoretical discussion. There´s a reason you have minimum standards. There are people out there who have insurance that´s really an illusion of coverage. They have immense deductibles, they have annual and lifetime caps. There´s so many people out there with what I call phony insurance policies and the fact that they´re going to lose those
Fresh off his interview with President Barack Obama, MSNBC host Chris Matthews appeared on Now with Alex Wagner to review what the president said and to express his thoughts on the passing of former South African President Nelson Mandela. Matthews linked the GOP to South Africa’s white apartheid advocates and declared that those who facilitated the transition to Mandela’s presidency were more patriotic and had greater regard for their country than the Republicans in Congress. Matthews acknowledged a point that Rev. Al Sharpton had made earlier in this broadcast where he noted that the last apartheid president, F.W. de Klerk, recognized
The Obama administration knew as early as August that the small-business portal on healthcare.gov would not be ready by the Oct. 1 launch, but delayed admitting those problems until Nov. 27, according to documents released by House Republicans on Friday. In one colorful email exchange in mid-August, Henry Chao, the administration official charged with the development of the online insurance marketplaces, expressed frustration with delays from the private contractor working on the website. When the contractor suggested a new date of Nov. 15 for the launch of the small-business portal of the website, Chao bluntly asked: “Can we sign this
The White House dismissed a report suggesting that President Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius did not meet ahead of the botched rollout of Obamacare. Obama press secretary Jay Carney said the claim was based on a “ridiculously false premise.” “Kathleen Sebelius comes frequently and she meets frequently with the president,” he said. “She’s here a lot and meets with the president with regularity.” “It’s safe to say Secretary Sebelius spent a lot of time here,” he added, noting the administration’s focus on health care reform. The report from Politico Magazine noted that a Government Accountability Institute analysis of the president’s
There was a tale of two Christmases on TV last night. Over at NBC, Carrie Underwood led the cast of “Sound of Music Live!” in a joyous rendition of the Julie Andrews classic. While no one involved in the production is likely to win an Emmy anytime soon, the singing was flawless and it was a squeaky clean program that lived up to its “TV G” rating. Over at Fox it was another story. Glee’s “Previously Unaired Christmas” should have stayed true to its name and remained a lost script, considering it was complete with a bisexual Santa, transgender Virgin
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has high praise for potential 2016 contenders Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “I think Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever, and he has been with me, at my side, in every tough decision that I’ve made,” Obama told MSNBC in an interview Thursday held at American University. “Hillary, I think, will go down in history as one of the finest secretaries of state we’ve ever had, and helped to transition us away from a deep hole that we were in,
WASHINGTON — Without Nelson Mandela, there might never have been a President Obama. That is the strong impression conveyed from Mr. Obama, whose political and personal bonds to Mr. Mandela, the former South African president, transcended their single face-to-face meeting, which took place at a hotel here in 2005. It was the fight for racial justice in South Africa by Mr. Mandela that first inspired a young Barack Obama to public service, the American president recalled on Thursday evening after hearing that Mr. Mandela, the 95-year-old world icon, had died. Mr. Obama delivered his first public speech, in 1979, at
