Obama says he´s ´determined
as ever´ for gun bill

Associated Press, by Nedra Pickler

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/8/2013 10:27:49 PM

HARTFORD, Conn. -- With time running out on the chance to pass gun control legislation, President Barack Obama on Monday warned Congress not to use delaying tactics against tighter regulations and told families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims that he´s "determined as ever" to honor their children with tougher laws. Obama´s gun control proposals have run into resistance on Capitol Hill, leaving their fate in doubt. Efforts by Senate Democrats to reach compromise with Republicans over expanding required federal background checks have yet to yield an agreement, and conservatives were promising to try

From the article:

"This is not about me. This is not about politics. This is about doing the right thing for all the families who are here who have been torn apart by gun violence," Obama said, his voice rising with emotion as he shook his finger in the air.

Let me help the uninformed or the inattentive with a translation from Obama English to Plain English:


Obama English: This is not about me.

Plain English: This is all about Me, the God-Emperor Barack Hussein Obama.


Obama English: This is not about politics.

Plain English: This is all about politics, this is nothing but politics, this is only about politics.


Obama English: This is about doing the right thing for all the families who are here who have been torn apart by gun violence,"

Plain English: This is not at all about doing the right thing for all the families who are here who have been torn apart by gun violence. This is all about Me, Me, Me and my desire to politically damage the Republicans, the National Rifle Association, honest American gun owners, and anyone who stands in My Way, for I am the God-Emperor Barack Hussein Obama and none shall resist Me."

Hey, Goober, it´s always about you demagoguing an issue and it´s always politics.

Our rights cannot be taken away by a two-bit, Communist, community agitator from Chicago. We don´t care how "determined" you are!!

We are a free people and the Constitution is the law of our land. You can kiss our American backsides!

This is one crisis he cannot afford to waste. What a pity if he doesn´t get his way. That this two faced clown should be the first to attempt to take our weapons only gives WTP an insight into his black soul. Our guns are ours for a reason you fraud from the unknown Attempt to take them at your own peril. We are wise to you, your lies, your plans, your evil attempts to bring down our great nation. YOU might think you are our government....but remember YOU WORK FOR US and your services can be terminated at any given time if enough of US have had more than we can stomach.

The complicit media is in the tank once again,trying over simplify these gun laws being about background checks,when they´re really more far reaching.They want a national database for every gun owner in this country,except for criminals.Nobody really knows where gangbangers get their guns and the government has no interest in finding out.

This is about putting scarlet letters on people´s heads as a form of ridicule and creating target groups for left wing activists to attack.

I´d much rather have a national database of people who are eligible to vote and only being able to vote once.

The WH gun running Fast & Furious was the seed for gun control. The mentally ill lone gun men sprouted the seed, then the drive-by media gave it some water. Now the demonrats are tending to it, all in the name of getting rid of that pesky 2nd Amendment so Barry´s civilian army can completely control the people.

"Determined as ever" as applied to the national debt, the deficit and unemployment translates from Barack-speak to actual English: "I´m determined to make the problem worse".

Fine print from the very end of the article:

"Gun control is divisive in Newtown, Conn., as in the rest of the country. Not all Sandy Hook families support gun control, and even those involved with the lobbying push organized by Sandy Hook Promise are not backing the assault weapons ban."

CT gun bill has NOT ONE thing that would have stopped Adam Lanza.
Had Lanza not shot himself, he would not have faced the death penalty as the same nitwits that just took away our second amendment rights abolished the death penalty only months before Sandy Hook! Never mind that THE PEOPLE were in favor of keeping the death penalty by 60% plus.

this is interesting psychologically. This is the first time I have seen the President acting like he gives a damn and is willing to work hard to get a piece of legislation passed. Even Obamacare was turned over to congress with presidential instruction to "just pass anything." Jobs, budget, terrorism, meh....whatever. I have a fundraiser to go to. Golf to play. Hoops to shoot. But here he is really trying. Am I being paranoid by wondering if it is because this is an attack on a constitutional right?

For what the families have suffered I am truly sorry -- BUT -- that does not mean MY right to bear arms should be stepped on......

The obama strategy of "never let a crisis go to waste" is playing itself out. He´s using the grief/stricken families as political pawns in his game of Me/Me/Me/Me......

WE the people can see the "won" losing his cool because someone said "NO" to him.....

Perhaps you should be worried about the little brat in North Korea throwing his stones around and do YOUR job, i.e. protect American interests. That would include South Korea. You do know where that is -- right?????

FTA, " They´re saying they´ll do everything they can to even prevent any votes on these provisions. They´re saying your opinion doesn´t matter. And that´s not right."

He has some audacity to make a statement like that with all the times he´s bypassed Congress with EO´s.

Why haven´t the Republicans paraded the families of the Benghazi deceased like Obama parades the families of the deceased children? Obama is a school bus chaser, that´s all he has-from the healthcare prop boy to Sandy Hook he knows the weak spot that stirs up Americans. He uses children as a shield and a shameless means to an end.

´ was checking out the commieblaster web site the other day. One entry explained how an American physicist was visiting Russia back in 1992. Someone told him, "we have a black KGB agent who is going to be the president of the United States soon". Savor that and keep it in mind and all the destructive actions Obama is taking against America makes perfect sense. Economy? Jobs? U.S. Debt? ha! fugit about it already: Comrade Bamboozler has other objectives in mind. Lenin disarmed his people as well.

America has always been the greatest country in the World.
Our Presidents represented us with dignity and decorum.
Now we have Obama running around the country like a chicken without a head, screaming at us like Rev. Wright at his pulpit.
I can think of a few other leaders of countries who worked themselves into frothing frenzies. He has to mezmorize the dumb masses.

The truth is Obama doesn´t want anyone he can´t control to possess firearms. He wants them in the hands of the government not a free people. Tyranny depends on defenseless patriots. He wants us to surrender the right to bear arms because he knows it will get very messy if he has to come get them.

It is all about him. Were it not, he would gather some statistics about gun violence and realize that the areas where the gun regulations are tightest are the same areas where gun violence is highest.

He is using one crazy person´s gun ownership as justification for confiscation, and make no mistake, that is where he wants to go. So do all liberals, actually believing that rules and laws stop gun violence.

I may be a bit of a simpleton but had there been a trained concealed weapon holder in Sandy Hook Elementary school the carnage would have been far less and many grieving parents would still have their child alive today. I do not understand why they aren´t angry enough to demand something as simple and positive as this. There will be another massacre somewhere soon - the no more 2nd amendment zealots will have to stage one more try at convincing you.

Obozo has a lot of gall to stand there and cry about how "everyone" or "the majority" of people, nation wide, really want these gun control measures. Well, what happened to the actual large majority of Americans the were and still are opposed to Obozocare? Got any answer for that?

This whole dog and pony show is a classic action of just what the founders warned about. This is a group of politicians attempting to create legislation by relying on people´s emotions instead of reasoned debate. Re-read your Federalist Papers. Of course, today´s modern "progressives" don´t have a clue what reasoned debate is. It´s all about emotion.

It´s not your imagination, #33. Our guns are the only thing standing between Dictator Soetoro and every other thing he wants to do to damage the country and enslave the populace. We CAN NOT give an inch on this 2nd Amendment assault. If he uses an executive order we need to use a people´s order to counter it. Congress is obviously not going to stand in his way except when their jobs are on the line. They still do not realize that they become expendable when he gets full control.

Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment. As we´ve argued, the rule had zero to do with financial reform and was sneaked into the law by Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office. The latest rule-making tally comes from the Competitive Enterprise Institute´s Wayne Crews, who on April 29 will publish his annual review of federal regulation in

Fiscal Policy: Remember President Obama´s vow that, if re-elected, he´d pursue "balanced" deficit reduction? Either he forgot, or he hopes voters have, because a new report shows his latest budget is entirely unbalanced. When Obama released his budget this March, he said it included "smart spending cuts" and closed "tax loopholes" that benefit only "the wealthiest Americans." Obama added that his budget would put "our debt on a downward path as a share of our total economy, which independent experts have set as a critical target for fiscal responsibility." As with just about everything Obama says, none of these claims turns out be

Corruption: New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of Tea Party and other conservative groups. This is no mere scandal — it´s a major breach of the law. The newly released emails were gathered for a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan public interest law group. They show that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner discussed with the Justice Department going after conservative groups that she believed lied about their political activities. What´s shocking is that this discussion came just days before Lerner acknowledged that the IRS had

Flat on his belly in a sniper position, wearing a baseball cap and a flak jacket, a protester aimed his semi-automatic rifle from the edge of an overpass and waited as a crowd below stood its ground against U.S. federal agents in the Nevada desert. He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy´s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management. The rangers had rounded up hundreds of Bundy´s cattle, which

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) is warning the Obama administration to not issue an executive order requiring that all new guns be made with biometric technology, such as finger-print recognition or bracelets. Cornyn raised the issue in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, who in testimony earlier this month highlighted biometric bracelets and fingerprint identification as a safety issue. “Your testimony has raised serious concerns for my constituents given President Obama’s track-record of acting beyond the scope of his legal authority and your hostility to the individual right to self-defense under the Second Amendment,” Cornyn wrote. “Is the Obama administration currently exploring

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander.

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
