After consulting with a series of stakeholders in the ongoing debate over gun control, Vice President Joe Biden will present his recommendations for reducing gun-related violence in America to President Obama on Tuesday, he said today. The vice president, speaking to reporters before a meeting on gun violence with sportsmen and women, and just minutes before another school shooting was reported, outlined a series of the recommendations he said are emerging in the course of his conversations with various stakeholders in the conversation. Among those possible proposals include
Tragic as the death of these 20 innocent school kids is, we need to remind the libs that 334,000 babies were slaughtered last year by Planned Death. If they really cared about violence, they´d shut down the slaughter houses of Planned Death.
Semi-automatic rifles are priced above my comfort threshold, but I just discovered that a basic annual NRA membership is not, so the NRA now has another member. I am not particularly interested in or fond of guns and don´t enjoy shooting. Joining the NRA is just one small way of pushing back against those evil clowns who are trying to infringe upon the Second Amendment. We all know that this crowd would never stop there, not even if they succeeded in eliminating the Amendment altogether. Next would be the First Amendment and everything else that prevents them from "fundamentally transforming the United States of America."
For reasons yet to be explained, the public has yet to receive all the facts about the Sandy Hook killer, e.g. psychiatric history, treatment, previous episodes of violence if any, etc. Yet the usual suspects on the Left are doing their best to maintain or drum up hysteria in order to rush something into law before Americans have a chance to debate and digest it. One of the very worst and most dangerous aspects of Leftist demagoguery is this trick of exploiting, aggravating, or even whipping up emotions and crisis mentality in order to pass legislation before anyone has time to figure out what is really going on. It is truly despicable, dishonest and manipulative behavior -and it is almost entirely found on the Left today. Of course tyrants of all stripes use the technique, e.g. the Nazis and the Reichstag fire, etc.
We must do our part as well. O Tuesday, we need to flood our Congress representatives and Senators with calls and letters demanding that control of the people though firearms restrictions is not acceptable. And we need to start protest. We need to let the liberals in DC and elsewhere that they are very close to the tipping point.
Whatever Biteme produces was probably written during Fast & Furious in anticipation of the public outcry the obysmal won and Eric "I don´ know nuffin´ ´bout no gun-walkin´" Holder hoped to produce, except they got caught.
~~From Wikipedia: The words "MOLON LABE" (???O? ????) in Greek as they are inscribed on the marble of the modern era monument at Thermopylae. The Greek phrase Molon labe! (????? ?aß?; approximate Classical Greek pronunciation [mol?`?n labé], Modern Greek [mo´lon la´ve]), meaning "Come and take them" is a classical expression of defiance reportedly by King Leonidas in response to the Persian army´s demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. It corresponds roughly to the modern equivalent English phrase "over my dead body", "bring it on" or, most closely, "come and get it". It is an exemplary use of a laconic phrase.~~
Maybe they should require all firearms owners to be members of the NRA and pass through firearms training courses run by NRA firearms experts, tailored to the type firearm they own.
Maybe the government should also farm out a new and more comprehensive firearms background check procedure to the NRA, and have the NRA conduct the checks through an expanded government data base of people who the law disqualifies from owning firearms, included a data base waived from the medical records protection laws, so that the records of the criminally insane and other dangerous mentally ill people can be checked as that´s where the problem is.

The game plan for the Obama gun control, including coordination with the usual suspect organizations was clearly in place before the election, waiting for Obama to be re-elected. None of the prior mass murders provoked any where near the coordinated onslaught we have seen from this case. The plan is to overwhelm the Republicans and the NRA. I would also note that Obama has marginalized the Tea Party and the Republicans; pure Alinsky. Now he is going to marginalized his last major nemesis the NRA. We will soon see a flurry of bogus hunting and gun rights organizations that support "commonsense" gun control. The whole Biden conversation is a cynical attempt to pretend to be "reasonable." As I said the game plan was all preplanned. Unfortunately, Obama has a very good success record at this sort of thing.
It´s pretty amazing to think that the most powerful nation on Earth has been reduced to actually having unconstitutional gun laws proposed, (and possibly adopted), by someone dumber than a dam doorknob who can´t count past three and has a secret wish to do advertising for The Villages retirement community! Wow...just WOW!!!
The White House agreed Thursday with Senate Democrats’ argument that Republicans are treating President Obama’s nominees unfairly, but Mr. Obama was singing a different tune just two weeks ago while raising money from liberal supporters. At a big-money fundraiser on Nov. 6 in Dallas to benefit Democratic Senate candidates, Mr. Obama boasted to donors that his administration is making great progress in molding the federal courts to his philosophy. “We are remaking the courts,” Mr. Obama said. “We’re actually, when it comes to the district court, matching the pace of previous presidents. When it comes to the appellate court, we’re
You probably don’t know the name Lee Habeeb — which, according to Lee Habeeb, is the way he likes it. Habeeb is in the business of making other people famous, conservative radio talk show hosts in particular. He was the co-creator of the Laura Ingraham Show and is now a high-level executive at Salem Radio Network, where he oversees the work of radio greats like Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt, Michael Medved and a host of other hosts. Habeeb also writes excellent columns for NRO, as well as other venues. I’ve spoken with Habeeb on the phone many times. For a while,
CNN´s Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan cautioned against MSNBC suspending or firing host Martin Bashir for his latest broadside against Sarah Palin, on Thursday´s New Day. Cuomo actually asked if he wasn´t just trying to make a "rhetorical point" rather than be "hurtful" to Palin. Bashir had clearly stated that Palin was "the outstanding candidate" to receive a certain punishment for slaves – defecating in their mouths – for her remarks on slavery. Despite the gravitas of his words CNN gave him some benefit of the doubt while ignoring his history of vile smears of Republicans, the worst of which
Senate Democratic leaders on Thursday moved to fundamentally alter the rules governing the filibuster after Republicans repeatedly rejected one of President Obama´s nominees to the D.C. Circuit Court. "Under the precedent set by the senate…the threshold for cloture on nominations, not including those of the Supreme Court of the United States, is now a majority," The Senate´s President Pro Tempore, Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., announced after a 48-52 vote to alter the rules. The move, which Senators refer to as the "nuclear option," came after the GOP rejected by a vote of 57-43 to confirm Patricia Millett to the D.C. Circuit
Accused-killer Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel will walk out of a Connecticut courtroom a free man Thursday after he posts a $1.2 million bond. Skakel touched his heart and smiled, and supporters in the courtroom clapped when Stamford Superior Court Judge Gary White granted bond, paving the way for Skakel’s release. “This is the first step in correcting a terrible wrong,” his brother John Skakel said in a statement. “We look forward to Michael being vindicated and justice finally being served. We are thankful to God that after 11 and one-half years he will be reunited with his son.” An appeals judge
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s finger is hovering over the big red button that will launch the Democrats´ nuclear attack against the United States Senate. By which we mean that, having secured 51 votes, Reid reportedly plans to advance a change to the body´s voting rules that would facilitate the approval of presidential nominees. KABOOM. That rules change, the much-discussed "nuclear option," is not an insignificant move for Reid. It´s not as bad as what happened in, say, Hiroshima in 1945, but it upends a long-standing tradition in the chamber. The problem in the Democrats´ view, as we´ve noted before,
The Obama administration once gave us “man-caused disasters” for acts of terrorism and “workplace violence” for the Fort Hood shootings. Now it has trumped those past linguistic contortions by changing words to mask the Obamacare disaster. The president and his advisers apparently knew long ago that millions of the insured would face cancellations or premium hikes once Obamacare was fully implemented. Yet to get the 906-page bill passed, they had to convince the public of the very opposite scenario. So they repeated ironclad guarantees that no one would lose their coverage or doctors — “period!” Now the administration explains the
Nearly 40 news outlets and organizations signed a letter Thursday urging the White House to relax its restrictions on news photographers when covering the president. The group, including major wire services and TV networks, said the White House is replacing “photojournalism with visual press releases” by barring photographers from certain meetings at the White House, then releasing its own photos of the events through social media. “As surely as if they were placing a hand over a journalist’s camera lens, officials in this administration are blocking the public from having an independent view of important functions of the Executive Branch
A huge jumbo jet has mistakenly landed at a small airport in Kansas – an airfield so small it does not even have a control tower. The Atlas Air cargo plane was due to fly from New York´s John F. Kennedy airport to McConnell Air Force Base. Audio from an air traffic control website says McConnell Air Force Base gave the plane clearance to land, but the aircraft went on to land at the wrong airport. The Dreamlifter pilots are heard saying, "Ah, yes sir, we just landed at the other airport." The cargo plane which landed on Wednesday night
In a surprise move, Afghan President Hamid Karzai appeared to pour cold water on the chances for an immediate security deal with the U.S., saying that because of the ?mistrust´ between him and Washington, any agreement should wait until his successor is elected. “The agreement should be signed when the election is conducted, properly and with dignity,” he told the Loya Jirga, a council of Afghan elders Karzai convened to vote on approving the deal, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. “There is mistrust between me and America. I don´t trust them, and they don´t trust me,”
Senate Republicans’ ability to filibuster President Barack Obama’s nominees could soon be history. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid may move toward a historic change in the Senate rules to eliminate the filibuster on most nominations as soon as Thursday, according to senior Democratic aides.Reid is strongly considering calling up one in a group of blocked nominees to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals for another round of votes, furious that Republicans have thwarted the nominations of Robert Wilkins, Nina Pillard and Patricia Millette. If a second go-round fails on that judicial pick, Reid would likely unilaterally move to change the rules
While the mainstream media have had no choice other than to report on ObamaCare´s ongoing smoking guns of failure, something the media have adamantly refused to do is look ahead and report on what horrors ObamaCare will bring next. Time Magazine broke with that three-year media tradition Wednesday to warn its readers that Obama´s promise about keeping your doctor will not live up to reality: Barack Obama’s broken promise that all Americans would be able to keep their health care plans after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act has infuriated people who took the President at his word and
President Barack Obama told the Wall Street CEO Council Tuesday that his administration has "reined in spending" and "cut our deficits by more than half." "After years of trillion-dollar deficits we reined in spending, wound down two wars and began to change a tax code that I believe was too skewed towards the wealthiest among us at the expense of the middle class," said Obama. "And since I took office, we have now cut our deficits by more than half. Add it all and businesses like yours have created 7.8 million new jobs over the past 44 months, we´ve gone farther
´´Knockout´´ attacks have been reported in several states around the country and now investigators believe three people have been attacked in our area. Police in Lower Merion are investigating two attacks in the area, and Philadelphia detectives are investigating an attack in Northeast Philadelphia. It’s a violent crime that in other parts of the country has proven fatal. Videos from cities around the country show people being punched and beaten at random.
Negligence? Absolutely. Incompetence? The case can be made. But scandalous? To suggest that the White House has willfully engaged in the intentional misleading of the public and an outrageous dereliction of its responsibilities to enforce the laws passed by Congress has been a bridge too far. Until recently. New revelations are now forcing even the most reluctant of President Barack Obama’s critics to concede that the Affordable Care Act’s implementation has evolved into a scandal. “I was not informed directly that the website would not be working, as the way it was supposed to,” Obama told reporters on November 14.
MICHELLE OBAMA: I thought I wanted to be a pediatrician when I was really little and then I wasn´t that great at math and science so I switched to law because my mother told me that I like to argue a lot. But I realized in high school and in college that you don´t have to exactly know, you´re kind of always discovering yourself. So I studied law, I went to law to school, but was pretty clear I just wanted to be a good student. I wanted to know how to read and write and communicate, be able to
It´s no secret that Sarah Palin is mighty steamed at MSNBC and Martin Bashir over his despicable remarks about the abusive treatment he imagines for her. And now she´s doing something about it. The former Alaska governor and Fox News contributor was scheduled to sit down with Matt Lauer for a Christmas season interview. That´s now toast. Palin has now canceled Lauer´s scheduled trip to Wasilla, a source close to her tells me. It´s not because Palin is upset with Lauer or the "Today" show, but as a protest against NBC for not taking action against Bashir. In fact, Palin once sat
In an interview on BET last night with Bow Wow and Keshia Chante, First Lady Michelle Obama talked up her husband, President Barack Obama. "I always say my husband has got swag," said Mrs. Obama. "He’s got a little swag." The audience applauded. Mrs. Obama also said that the president of the United States "sings all the time." She continued, "Oh, yes, he’s in the bathroom all the time just singing." She also praised her husband. "[H]e has got a good voice." Here´s a transcript of that exchange:
Well folks, it looks like Arizona Senator John McCain will "be one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off.” According to the Arizona Republic, McCain is set to attend a glitzy fundraising for his 2016 campaign in New York City. Sen. John McCain has scheduled a December fundraiser in New York City, the surest sign yet that the veteran Arizona Republican is serious about possibly pursuing a sixth term in 2016. According to a copy of the invitation obtained Tuesday by The Arizona Republic, McCain is asking supporters to join him 6 p.m. Dec. 16 at the midtown St. Regis Hotel
WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says she won’t wear shorts on Air Force One again because the one time she did, it created “a huge stink.”(snip)Mrs. Obama was asked about her biggest fashion regret. She said she’s always happy with her outfits but that, quote, “sometimes I forget I’m the first lady and I’m running around in shorts.” She recalled her family’s first White House vacation, to the Grand Canyon in August 2009. Mrs. Obama said her wearing shorts getting off the plane “created a huge stink because people were like, ‘she’s wearing shorts getting off of Air Force One.’” She said her thought
On Tuesday, President Barack Obama conceded that he will have to "remarket" and "rebrand" Obamacare as public confidence in him and the healthcare law he championed has plummeted. Speaking at the Wall Street Journal CEO Summit, Obama addressed the failures of the Obamacare rollout and said while he was confident that the healthcare model his administration built, which he claimed worked off of the "existing private insurance system," would succeed, the law would have to be rebranded. “We are going to have to obviously remarket and rebrand,” Obama said. “And that will be challenging in this political environment.” When he
President Barack Obama told a gathering of corporate executives Tuesday he´s confident that his model of health care will work in the end, but he said he´s going to have to "re-brand" it to sell it to a skeptical public. He didn´t use the word "Obamacare" once on Tuesday in talking about his health care law, but he mentioned the "Affordable Care Act" seven times. "So, look, I am confident that the model that we built, which works off of the existing private insurance system, is one that will succeed," Obama told the Wall Street Journal´s CEO Council Annual Meeting
The White House has admitted that it was wrong to promise that people would be able to their health care plans under Obamacare. "With respect to the pledge I made that if you like your plan you can keep it, I think -- you know, and I’ve said in interviews -- that there is no doubt that the way I put that forward unequivocally ended up not being accurate. It was not because of my intention not to deliver on that commitment and that promise. We put a grandfather clause into the law but it was insufficient," President Obama said
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says although some Democrats may be voting politically to distance themselves from Obamacare, they were still supporting the law and working in their districts to implement it. "This is history and the future and progress," she stated emphatically, "It stands right there as Social Security, Medicare, affordable health care, as a right, not a privilege for the few, but a right for the many." She was speaking Tuesday at an event sponsored by BuzzFeed. Pelosi acknowledged she was "really disappointed" that the technology behind the website failed, but said she was excited to see the program fully
