Photo-op president shooting blanks
New York Post, by Michael A. Walsh

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/17/2013 5:18:33 AM

President Obama’s exercise in gun legislation by photo-op and executive order yesterday may cheer liberals and outrage the NRA, but it will do almost nothing to curb gun violence. Some of the new rules — 23 in all — may at first glance seem reasonable, such as expanding the amount of information available for background checks. So does the boilerplate admonition to “launch a national safe and responsible gun-ownership campaign.” (But, psst, the National Rifle Association’s been doing that for years.) And some actually make sense, such as helping schools and churches develop more effective emergency-response programs. But all these are tepid, marginal stuff.

Note to author: an "assault weapon ban" has already been tried to no effect.
I´m sure the ACLU is getting on those potential civil liberty violations as we speak.

Confident that he often reads my posts here on these Lucianne threads… BHO, I suggest you immediately drop whatever it is you’re doing and instead find and carefully read and learn a thing or two from yesterday’s column by Ann Coulter entitled ”Guns Don’t Kill People, the Mentally Ill Do.” I assure you it’ll be time well spent.

No need to thank me. But, if you insist, you’re welcome.

I read the one about nominating an ATF director three times. Is Mr. Obama really issue an executive order compelling himself to fill a job he´s left vacant for four years? I can´t put my finger on why that sounds so loopy, but I take it as evidence that rule by executive order has officially gotten out of hand.

FTA ~ “Direct the attorney general to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.”

Well a dangerous person did slip through the cracks to become pRESIDENT. No one ever reviewed his ´category´. As a result we are subjected to daily assaults on our rights.

The name of the insurance company escapes me at the moment but if they ever want to choose a new ´Mayhem Guy´ Zippy would fit the bill. Now THERE is a commercial I would watch.

I suspect why so little emphasis on the real reason for these school shootings; mental health, is that Obama would rather take on the NRA - an easy target in his eyes than the ACLU.

Curious as to how much more extensive do we want background checks to purchase a gun? Why not background checks to buy a car? I seem to recall some Iranian who ran over a bunch of people at some univeristy a few years ago. Or perhaps background checks when purchasing some common household poisons - I´m sure a few people have been killed by rat poison over the years....

None of the background checks or precautions in place or to be in place would have stopped the mass murders. All slipped through because you can´t know what is in a person´s mind. That is why the only logical defense is to have sane, responsible persons available and ready to stand up to a mad man or woman. LaPierre was mocked but he is right. The only way to defeat a bad guy with a gun is to have a good guy with a gun. Or a good grandmother with a gun.

We could laugh at Obama´s posteuring except for the fact that he is proposing to spend several billions of dollars on, I know not what, as he has not been very specific about that.

Obama is exhibiting traits that should repulse voters. He is a serial liar , he contradicts himself, saying while he is in office the exact opposite of what he said when he was not, cruel, rude, shameless, hateful and prejudiced. His worshippers brush all this aside when he smiles and tells them: "It´s really very simple, if the Republicans would just" (whatever).

Obama is all about the show. I am sure that when this tragedy happened that he and his administration recognized it as a opportunity not to be missed and the talking points went out before the nightly news. This man has no shame and will use anything to advance his agenda. Dancing on the graves of these children meant nothing more than a means to an end to him.

FTA- "And Obama’s notion of dragooning the country’s doctors into a network of snitches
who ask their patients if they have guns at home is just repugnant."

This part of Obamacare is known
as " Snitches Not Stitches ".
BTW-Under Obamacare , during the yearly " free " physical exam , physicians are prohibited ..by Obama´s federal law,
from discussing any other conditions other than the original reason for the visit.
If you schedule your yearly " free " exam to discuss a backache-that is the only topic the doctor can discuss with you. Period. End.
If you decide to tell him about your headaches ,
the doctor ,
by law, will have to tell you to stop.
Every visit has to be coded for a specific problem .
The annual wellness visit cannot be coded
with any other
ailment or the physician can be charged with insurance fraud and can possibly lose his license.
If you want to discuss your headaches , you now have to make another appointment,
which will delay any diagnostic testing.
The same Obama that forbids doctors from discussing more than one physical problem during the exam,
will now permit / force
the doctors to discuss guns.

I agree with #16. I suggest never telling your doctor you are feeling just a little down, or you would like something to help you out of the doldrums. The Feds will soon have the ability to track your prescriptions and all they need to do is compare them to a list of medicines used for those purposes. Next, a knock on your door ----- give me your guns!

Agree with #21. I would never discuss the issue of guns with a physician. It is none of your doctor´s business. And it´s none of your childrens´ teachers business, either.

There are far more deaths from illegal guns in the inner city and from gangs than are committed by "mentally ill" individuals.

Shooting blanks makes noise, and distracts, making people think about the noise. Meanwhile, what is being done to cut federal government spending??

What is being done by the democratics to come up with a budget...it´s been over three years since a budget has been passed, and by law it is supposed to be done annually.

It must be that the laws are for everyone else to follow, and our enlightened elites in Washington D.C. can´t be burdened with silly laws or even the constitution.

The Saga of Bundy Ranch --Federal Power, Rule
of Law and Averting Potential Bloodshed
Breitbart Big Government, by Logan Churchwell & Brandon Darby    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/14/2014 9:32:52 AM     Post Reply
BUNKERVILLE, NEVADA—The Bundy Ranch roundup has understandably stirred thin-stretched emotions as the federal government seizes cattle belonging to the Bundy family. The family settled in the late 1800’s and has ranched in the area since. The federal government allowed Nevada ranchers to graze their cattle on federal tracts of land adjacent to their private properties for generations. The federal government later created the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to administer and “protect” the vast swaths of federal land—including the land the Bundy family’s livelihood was—and still is—dependent upon. The BLM began restricting ranchers’ usage of federal lands to protect various

Hillary Clinton all but erased

A huge wave of public testimony, reports and documents on what happened in Benghazi now floods Washington, and little of it focuses on the role of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before, on, or after Sept. 11, 2012. Over the past 18 months, there have been at least seven public congressional hearings and three fact-finding reports on the terrorist attack. If not invisible, Mrs. Clinton is certainly portrayed as being only in the background during Benghazi, unaware of key events. In the early post-Benghazi days on Capitol Hill, Republicans tried to pry “what did she know and when did she know

Scot Gillies has a good idea of the kind of horse people who will fit in at Gryffindor Farm, the small barn he helps manage in Lexington, Ky. So his advertisements for new boarders spell it out in detail: Owners must be "laid-back," "happy" and above all, "drama-free." Mr. Gillies, a marketing consultant by day and a horse owner himself, says that during his 14 years in the equestrian world, "I´ve seen the full range of drama that is associated with horse people."

WASHINGTON – The Westboro Baptist Church, an extremist organization known for its anti-gay activism, announced that it will picket the funerals of the three people killed in Sunday afternoon’s shooting attacks at two Kansas City Jewish sites. The church, which has famously picketed funerals of US military personnel and has protested against the American Jewish community, sent out a tweet shortly after the shooting saying, “Thank God for shootings at Overland Park KS jewish centers! Westboro to picket funerals. God did not passover.” The Topeka, Kansas-based group is not affiliated with any Baptist organization, and has a long history of anti-Semitic

The Obama administration has scheduled a deputies committee meeting this week—tentatively set for Tuesday—to resolve a bitter inter-agency dispute over a request from Russia with respect to the Open Skies program. Informed sources believe the White House is likely to side with the State Department, which wants to accommodate Russia, over the objections of the Obama administration´s Defense Department and intelligence agencies. The Open Skies treaty allows the United States and Russia to fly over each other´s territory with planes loaded with certain agreed-upon sensor packages, in order to ensure compliance with arms control agreements and to provide assurance against

It’s not spying, it’s policing. Good news for New Yorkers, who live, work and play in what remains the world’s top terror target: New profiling rules the Justice Department is drafting will reportedly let the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue the critical work of using nationality to map neighborhoods, recruit informants and look for foreign agents. In other words, they’ll let the often-cautious FBI engage in intelligent and legitimate policing to prevent attacks against innocent Americans. As reported by The New York Times, the feds’ decision, arrived at after years of exhaustive legal and other reviews, is a tacit endorsement of nearly identical

Judging by the horse he gave Defense Secretary Chuckie Hagel a couple of days ago, Mongolian Defense Minister Dashdemberel must be a very diligent student of the defense budget that Congress is now trying to craft. The horse, of course, is a gelding. When the president announced his proposed budget and Hagel went to Congress to state the party line, I wrote that several indispensable weapon systems — the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, the A-10 Warthog attack aircraft, and half of the Navy’s 22 cruisers among them — would be retired. Under the president’s plan, military pay raises would be capped at

White House senior adviser John Podesta is running against the clock. Time is winding on Podesta’s objective, which is to make sure President Obama put points on the board in the final three years of his second term through either legislation or executive action. With Obama and the White House flailing in late 2013, Podesta returned to the West Wing in January as part of an Obama reboot. A little more than three months later, the former chief of staff for President Clinton gets good marks from Democrats and fellow West Wingers for helping to improve the White House’s strategy and communications.

Dartmouth College students recently staged an overnight sit-in the office of their president Philip Hanlon. They had over seventy demands. Apparently, they grew out of their alleged suffering at the hands of “racist, classist, sexist, heterosexist, trans-homophobic, xenophobic, and ablest structures.” Translating into English, the students elaborated, “Our bodies are already on the line, in danger, and under attack” — suggesting conditions similar to the teen-aged Marines who stormed Fallujah in November 2004, or perhaps the iron-workers who tip-toe on girders 1,000 feet above Manhattan, or an acquaintance of mine whose work clothes reveal that he pumps out quite messy rural

On Friday the president used the long-awaited resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to again claim victory for his namesake health law. “She got it fixed, got the job done,” Obama said. Right. Sorry, there is plenty of more bad news ahead. It’s not called SebeliusCare, and she wasn’t to blame for most of its problems. The horrors were mostly baked into the law, with some made worse by the president’s dishonest hard sell to get unsuspecting Americans to sign up. Obama claimed Friday that 7.5 million people have enrolled in exchange coverage. In fact, perhaps 20 percent haven’t

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public
