Hiding Behind the Children
American Spectator, by Aaron Goldstein

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/16/2013 6:12:40 AM

During the last press conference of his first term in office, President Obama pledged to take “executive action” to reduce gun violence in response to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut last month. The President told reporters, “If there is a step we can take that will save even one child from what happened in Newtown, we should take that step.” When Obama unveils his gun control proposals today at the White House, he will be surrounded by children. It’s something straight out of South Park.

Guns really aren´t the issue here,it´s about Obama setting a prescedent on using exe orders every time he thinks something is too tough to get through congress. i suspect that amnesty is on the short list of what´s next along with reparations and college loan forgiveness. Of course there´s no money for all this but that won´t stop him either. The trillion dollar coins is a trial balloon for now but could very well happen for obama to satisfy his voters.
i wonder what other countries think about the insanity going on here.Whether they know it or not,they´re going to be ill affected with this country collapses.

Too funny ~ and true ~ #1 and I would add a reported propensity for using nose candy and other mind altering compounds.

This was out a few days ago. http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/12/27/sandy-hook-huge-hoax-and-anti-gun-psy-op/ Not the first time I´ve seen accusations against the FBI.

I guess now, with all the hoopla, every time someone pharts sideways, some little child somewhere [at the instigation of their lib parent] will write a letter to Preezy so maybe they will get to go to the White House and be on teevee. Gack.

Wasn´t it to save the children that President Clinton murdered all the people in the Koresh compound in Waco, Texas?

Didn´t he use an army tank to breach the building and insert highly combustible tear gas that started the conflagration?

We cannot trust this president either.

I agree with Newt, the Repubs should hold their news conference in Chicago, and surround themselves with poor black kids in Englewood (where a lot of our 500 murders last year took place, with handguns too)and say Obambi doesn´t care about these kids.

Adding a couple more gun laws here won´t change a thing.

If only he could be surrounded by the souls of all the aborted babies and especially those who were born alive and Obama voted to let die. And the hundreds of murdered Mexicans and the American border agent killed by Obama´s sham Fast and Furious, undertaken to make gun shows look bad. What a phoney! Obama and Holder are the biggest gunrunners of all.

I hope that just one reporter cuts a coupe of calves away from the herd and asks them about their alleged letter. And not allow the parents to speak for them or give them hints.. I can just see the blank stares from the kids, and if allowed to answer honestly, "mommy(or daddy) told me what to write, and said we´d get to be on TV. Hey, Vaj-jar, this was a cool idea. The dumb masses will buy it.

During the hour or so of President Obamas speech today over 100 innocent children will be murdered without the use of a firearm. For the entire day, in fact every day, 3,000 babies will lose their right to have any kind of life, yet no public tears will be shed for them. I mourn with the Newtown parents and their loss, but even more so for the 1 million babies a year who fade into oblivion without ever getting a chance to draw abreath.

None of the gun proposals to be recommended by Barack Obama today will have prevented a crime like what happened in Newtown. They will only serve to make criminals out of ordinary law abiding citizens.

They don´t care about the ´chilrun´ any more than they care about the rule of law. As cold as it might sound, there is almost nothing in the constitution more important than the 2nd amendment. All the rest of the amendments depend on the 2nd to keep the government in check and a pack of cutesy, tow-headed little waifs being used as a human shield is not going to change my mind.

All dictators use children. Witness all the Kims of North Korea, Saddam Hussein (easy to remember those photo ops), etc. Has Bashir Assad had his kiddie photo op by this time? How about that Morsi?

Pedophiles use children too. Is that going to be OK, acceptable, and EO-legal next?

Meanwhile, Barack´s two precious daughters attend Sidwell Friends school in Washington, D.C. It is your average liberal elementary school, complete with 11 armed guards with semi-automatic rifles protecting the roof and perimeter (outside of the Secret Service!!). What a despicable hypocrite this president is. He is unworthy of the office he holds and he is a disgrace to mankind.

It would be a good time for Operation Rescue to bring those babies in jars, as well as the huge, graphic abortion photos... for the children.

To think about it, maybe we could have graphic pics of cartel victims on this and Mexico´s side of the border courtesy of Obama´s ´giving out guns like candy´ campaign.

Not to be forgotten, Stevens and those who were killed with him... likely with weapons supplied by this *******.

As we speak, he´s probably sent countries to every hot spot in the Middle East, to our enemies.

The left used Hitler´s 1938 gun laws word for word (translated of course, see Thomas Dodd).

I´m still waiting for inventory of precincts and warehouses re: disposal and missing weapons.

Some bad apples on the force (and retired cops as well), make a good penny slinging weapons, drugs, etc.. That would be in Bloomberg´s city of course..

His actions remind of the Stephen King novel, "The Dead Zone", where a politician picks up a child to use as a shield as he makes his way out of a church while under assasin fire.

It´s good to see Bamster has his priorities in line post election such as the economy & jobs. /s off.

This administration knows that our country is on the verge of collapse. It is inevitable. They have lied to the public with false unemployment reports, housing numbers and umpteen sound bites that the USA has turned the corner and showing signs of recovery. Pure hooey. This country is going to collapse and when it does, there are going to be angry citizens and a lot of chaos. And when (not if) that happens, 0bama needs to have the public unarmed. His civilian army won´t be able to take over if we can shoot back.

The use of children, like Obozo is doing, is straight out of Mein Kampf. Hitler used children the same way. This is no coincidence as their goals are the same.

This is NOT Gun Control. I am waiting for Conservatives to use the EXACT terminology for what the Left is doing - Attacking & Destroying the 2nd Amendment.

Plus, if the truth about the Treason of The Benghazi Massacre became COMMON knowledge, Obozo would be dead meat. Hence, the attack on Gun Owners and the attempt at dissolving the 2nd Amendment. Only something this huge could deflect from Benghazi and the prezdint´s true reason to place Americans who where in Libya in danger and WHY he gave the order to the CIA and the military to stand down.

Conservatives should keep a close watch on BOTH hands.

The Unemployment Puzzle:
Where Have All the Workers Gone?
Wall Street Journal, by Glenn Hubbard    Original Article

A big puzzle looms over the U.S. economy: Friday´s jobs report tells us that the unemployment rate has fallen to 6.7% from a peak of 10% at the height of the Great Recession. But at the same time, only 63.2% of Americans 16 or older are participating in the labor force, which, while up a bit in March, is down substantially since 2000. As recently as the late 1990s, the U.S. was a nation in which employment, job creation and labor force participation went hand in hand. That is no longer the case. What´s going on?

At parties, Charlie Chaplin could usually be counted on to liven up the atmosphere. Determined to be the centre of attention, he’d mime the parts of a bull and matador or dance with invisible balloons. Then, using his skills as a mimic, he’d pretend to be one Hollywood leading lady after another — in the throes of love-making. Whether he’d slept with them all is open to doubt, but he was incorrigible in making advances to female film stars. He boasted frequently about his conquests, and eventually confessed to having had sexual relations with more than 2,000 women. What did they all

One could be forgiven for throwing one’s hands up in despair at the sheer audacity of it all. A fortnight ago, as the federal government took to the courts to defend a rule that deliberately burdens the consciences of America’s more religiously devout entrepreneurs, the professional Left adopted the position that companies do not have consciences, griped that a harsh separation of the public and the private spheres was a recipe for the suffering of unpopular or put-upon individuals, and insisted that any links between the activities of an employee and the deeply held beliefs of his boss should be

He said it was ‘the right war.’ Then he did everything he could to screw it up. Despite the violence and uncertainty surrounding this Saturday’s election for a new Afghan President, there’s one positive —Hamid Karzai, the sitting president and the architect of much of the country’s unrest, is not on the ballot this time. But while Karzai must cede power under the rules of the Afghan constitution, the other leader whose mismanagement helped tank Afghanistan abandoned his influence in what he once called “the right war” a long time ago. That leader is President Barack Obama. An outright winner is unlikely

Every time the Supreme Court rules in favor of the First Amendment in a campaign-finance case, the left recoils in disgust. The court’s 5-4 decision in McCutcheon v. FEC is the latest occasion for the rending of garments and gnashing of teeth. The court struck down the limit on the aggregate amount a donor can give to candidates and political-party committees, ruling it incompatible with First Amendment protections for political expression. The left pronounced itself outraged. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who has $11 million in his campaign treasury despite being a de facto senator for life, called the decision “another step on

So it’s like every other “gun-free zone,” basically. Anyone who can be trusted with a weapon can’t have one, and anyone who can’t be trusted will have little trouble ignoring the rule. Makes sense. Here’s the answer to my question yesterday about how useful the current ban on guns inside military bases is in keeping them out. At Fort Hood, which sprawls for 340 square miles over the Texas prairie, Specialist Lopez was being treated for behavioral and mental health issues. To enter the base, he would have undergone no security screening beyond showing his identification and would have passed through no

In the untamed world of online comment sections, no one is more vulnerable to criticism than doctors, who are restricted by confidentiality laws from defending themselves against even the most outlandish of claims. With patients increasingly dependent on internet marketplaces to find care — and increasingly prone to frustration — it’s the caregivers who get hurt. At first glance, the homepage for Philip Leggett, M.D., appeared unremarkable. Visitors were greeted with stock photos of smiling faces in a banner across the top; Leggett’s credentials as a respected laparoendoscopic surgeon were in bold type. But closer examination revealed something curious: the patient

George Will wrote a column in which he said of Jeb Bush, “A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable” and “[he] does … deserve a respectful hearing from the Republican nominating electorate.” I agree, partly because I admire Bush, who was a highly successful, reform-minded conservative governor. His record as governor of Florida was, in fact, more conservative in key respects than Ronald Reagan’s record when he was governor of California. (Mr. Reagan signed into law what at the time was the largest tax hike ever proposed by any governor, whereas Bush cut taxes every year he was governor,

In his plurality opinion in yesterday´s free-speech case, McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, Chief Justice John Roberts notes an anomaly in contemporary "liberal" First Amendment jurisprudence: "If the First Amendment protects flag burning, funeral protests, and Nazi parades--despite the profound offense such spectacles cause--it surely protects political campaign speech despite popular opposition." We´d take the point a step further. The examples Roberts cites all involve fringe political expression.(Snip)So why have the court´s "liberals" adopted a hostile attitude toward political speech, which has long been understood

Democratic Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia wants you to know that, at $174,000 a year, members of Congress are underpaid. Because Jim Moran, like others, doesn´t understand actual economic hardship and, frankly, isn´t that great at politics either. Moran is not the only public official to make a dubious claim about salary hardship in the past 24 hours. Larry Schwartz is secretary to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a position that´s a sort of like chief of staff in the state. Schwartz was discussing a proposal backed by Cuomo that would freeze property taxes on people at certain income levels.

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it
