Scarborough Warns: GOP ‘Better
Tread Lightly,’ Obama Gun Proposals
Enjoy ‘Overwhelming Support’

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/17/2013 12:10:07 PM

After reviewing President Obama‘s 23 “executive actions” signed into law yesterday, Joe Scarborough said Thursday morning that his Republican Party had better proceed with caution, seeing as how he believes the policy proposals have the “overwhelming” support of the American people. The president’s plan included universal background checks on gun purchases, which Scarborough said has the support of at least “85% of Americans.” The president’s call for a restoration the “military-style assault weapons” ban, the MSNBC host said, enjoys at least “60/40? support. “Almost 7 in 10 americans support” limiting

Comments:
This moron is more detrimental to the party than the RINO´s because he is in the media daily. "Treading lightly" is what has gotten the Republicans in the fix we are in. The last election is a perfect example. Shut up Joe.

With all due respect to the parents who lost loved ones at the Sandy Hook shooting if I had a child in school today, and I will have grandchildren there shortly, I want them protected. I want guards, or armed personnel on campus trained and willing to defend lives. I do not want the ability to defend my young ones stripped from me. If it´s about protecting our children it is about being armed to the teeth to do so. If anyone had been armed the outcome could have been vastly different. I have been telling everyone I talk to my position. I do not know why that is so hard to understand.

I would suspect in the closed world of liberals thats true. But get rid of the bias and you might just find something different.

Keep repeating the lie until it becomes the truth.

Just who does RINO Joe think is buying up all those guns and ammo? I think folks are really demonstrating "overwhelming Support" for the Constitution and specifically "shall not infringe".
But then Scarborough is suffering from the "Stockholm Syndrome". He´s been too close to the Left for so long he has become one of them.

Most of the people in the United States don´t know who Joe Scarborough, have never heard of him.

I first heard of him here and can´t get rid of him as he pops up here daily, usually in multiple posts.

Have we unwittingly given him celebrity he doesn´t deserve?

At the risk of being out-of-step again - it´s good to separate the message from the messenger. I think he´s right. No one but the most hardcore conservative purists (like most here) objects to background checks for gun purchases at this point. To me, it´s kind of like the voter ID issue - like voting, guns are a privilege, and why would one object if there is nothing objectionable in one´s background? I know it could lead to abuses, but then everything can, and they could be addressed.

Everyone knows everything anyway! I called last night regarding resetting user ID and PW for a credit card, and I was shocked by the multiple choice questions the agent was asking me. I asked her how she knew these things, and she said, "Public records"!

A couple of thgs need to be clarified. UNLIKE voting, owning a firearm is NOT a privilege, Sir. It is a RIGHT, recognized in the Constitution. Not conferred- RECOGNIZED as existing, specificlly to instruct government NOT to interfere.

Arguably, we have agreed as a society that there are certain persons, under certain circumstances, who have forfeited that right - felons for example, who have ALSO forfeited their right to vote. But a word to the wise - a RIGHT does not become a privilege because you say so.

Secondly with very limited exceptions virtually ALL firearm transfers involve a background check. In certain states, firearms inherited, transferred from parent to child, (of legal age to possess) or between spouse do not.

Statements to the contrary do not change those facts. Finally, statements by faux pundits lke Scarborough, about what "the majority of the American people" want are not rendered factual by repeating them.

There is a prescribed method for altering the Constitution. It is VERY difficult to achieve, as it should be. Until then It doesn´t matter what you or anyone else "wants". It is a Bill of RIGHTS, not a Bill of ´Wants´ or Needs´. /Rant

Left wingers have a truly symbiotic relationship with mainstream/´progressive´ reporters: The media like to project their own opinions and concerns onto others, and their Liberal audience love to be told what they believe or feel by intellectual elites whose opinions and feelings they trust.

Seeing "sources say", "experts report", "research reveals", or "the people support/oppose" makes me growl now. Because nobody with any integrity lets another person tell them what they believe, think, or feel.

Owning a gun is not a privilege. It is a RIGHT guaranteed to us by the United States Constitution. We have the legal right to bare arms. Driving a car on public highways is not a right and you must have a license to do so.

IMHO, UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS is code for NATIONAL DATABASE, which is what they really want. With that they will have the ability to pick us off one subset at a time. If you are on that database will they come for your gun if you are accused of domestic violence, or go through a personal tragedy and need to see a doctor, or if you get a traffic ticket and might want to shoot up a courthouse etc....

#21, you are correct, I suspect. And if you combine that database with the mandatory medical records computerization, (which was added to the 2009 stimulus bill, with 35 billion dollars of funding) the federal government will be able to identify anyone taking any kind of ´psychiatric´ drug, and deny them the right to purchase a firearm.
How bad is this? Hypothetical - death of a loved one, prescription for valium to take to get through the funeral? doesn´t matter -- psychiatric label on you.

Things change. I´d bet an ´overwhelming´ number of Americans would really like to know who organized and ran Operation Fast And Furious. There would be ´support´ for finding who it was that instructed the AZ gun store to sell ´assault´ weapons to obvious drug dealers, breaking several gun control laws in the process.

The problems with the background is arbitrary denials and false negatives. You should be automatically approved if there is any doubt as this is the stronger right. The opposite is the way they want to implement it. Also, it creates a database that by it´s nature is not private and can be used against you.
If a majority of people want to stop paying taxes will they go along with that?

The tens of thousands (and more) who are waiting in long, long lines willing to shell over hundreds of thousands of dollars might disagree with you. This will do nothing to stop the black on black crime of the inner cities (Chicago, NY are you listening?). It´s the breakdown of the family, the absent fathers and trashy mothers. They are the problem first and foremost. Joe is a boil that needs to be lanced.

FTA: The president’s plan included universal background checks on gun purchases, which Scarborough said has the support of at least "85% of Americans."

So what?

Self-defense, armed [that is, effective] self-defense, is an inalienable right recognized in the Constitution, and recognized by the Constitution as beyond reach of any gov´t we may establish.

There´s simply no discussion that can be had that counters that fact.

But yes, criminals can be stripped of weapons, but that is because they forfeit the right to arms by actions that damage the legitimate rights of the law-abiding.

All it takes is a little knowledge and some careful, disciplined reasoning to "get" this stuff. But it ain´t rocket surgery, friends. It just ain´t.

# 14 you are wrong about guns a voting. They are both rights. A privilege is a drivers license or credit card. As for background checks, that makes sense, but kind of like you said; who sets the standards for what is and is not objectionable? Seems simple enough not to let convicted murderers and psychos have guns, but some mass murderers are neither before they act.

Earlier this week Bill O’Reilly called Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee a “race hustler” and Lee shot back at O’Reilly’s “disgusting and divisive” language. On Friday night O’Reilly stood by his words and called Lee both a “pinhead” and a “liar” in response. O’Reilly mocked Lee’s insinuation on MSNBC that on the right, “we all use phrases that denigrate African-Americans.” He went through a list of examples he believes bolsters his “race hustler” charge and said, “How about pinhead, congresswoman? You like that better?” O’Reilly condemned Lee for “flat-out calling people with whom she disagrees racist” and then having “the gall, the nerve”

Having done his darndest in The Hague, Barack Obama is taking his “cast of 100s” caravan to the sands of the Saudis. Riyadh may seem a strange place to end a European tour, but Mr. Obama often does the unexpected. What he does not do when travelling, however, is deal directly with the really bad stuff. Even at The Hague, as tens of thousands of Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s border, he sought to divert attention from the calamity on Europe’s frontier. Instead, he asserted that Russia’s aggression was a sign of weakness, and Moscow would sooner or later come to

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role.

The Kroger grocery store chain "is in the process of transitioning to unarmed security guards across the company." According to 10TV in Columbus, Ohio, "Kroger said armed guards will remain in some of its locations," but it is not saying where. U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep.

Gun control groups working to push further gun control in California worry that state senator Leland Yee´s indictment on arms trafficking "may slow the legislature´s consideration of gun restrictions this year." According to AP California News, on March 27 organizers of more legislation said "the charges filed against...Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, could cloud the future of two of his gun control bills." As Breitbart News reported on March 26, Yee supported an "assault weapons" ban in California and a requirement for background checks for ammunition purchases.

In a March 27 interview on cable business network CNBC, Emanuel claimed that he offered the President a "contrary opinion" on Obamacare but his advice was not heeded.

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
