Obama: "Unimaginable" That
Congress Would "Defy" Americans
And Not Pass Gun Control

Real Clear Politics, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/16/2013 5:59:35 PM

"I think we’ve got a good chance of seeing it pass if members of Congress are listening to the American people," President Obama said in an interview on NBC´s "Today Show" that aired on Tuesday. "The notion that Congress would defy the overwhelming instinct of the American people after what we saw happen in Newtown, I think, is unimaginable." Obama was then asked by Savannah Guthrie how he could expect Democrats in red states to vote on this bill when he, as a Senator, didn´t have to himself.

Even though it´s the day after a terrorist attack in Boston, obama can´t back off from his gun grab agenda. He can´t take one day off from telling bold face lies about gun control. He is shameless. He has no sense of decency. There is no limit to how low the creep can go.

Obama says:

"I think that all of us had to reflect on what we did or didn´t do after Newtown,"

I have to say that the timing of the Kermit Gosnell trial provides vivid picture of this man´s hypocrisy toward the American people and human life in general.

Does duffus Obama not understand that NO GUNS were involved in this bombing at the Boston Marathon! What´s he going to do - make pressure cookers illegal? Will the feds come into our homes now to check for pressure cookers?

Actually, I don´t think they are used very much any more - now that microwave cooking is so popular. Crock pots also are more popular than pressure cookers. When my mother was fixing something in her pressure cooker, she warned me to be careful around it - that the weight on the lid could "blow" off and hit me in the face. My parents always scared the h@## out of me over a lot of things when I was a kid, and I must say they were quite effective.

Congress isn[´t defying us. Congress for once is listening to us. It wasn´t the NRA but millions of Americans that made their Senators and Congressmen aware of their thoughts about gun grabs and the consequences of voting for gun grabs. Seems Senators want their cushy jobs more than they want to make Obambi a hero on this one.

Once more we observe that this "professor"(actually a mere instructor-lecturer) of Constitutional law does not understand the basics of American government. He does not know how the republic was constructed and designed to work. He really seems to have skipped freshman civics or whatever middle school course explained this. If he had been paying attention he would know that the United States Congress, for good or for ill, is the representative of the American people. That is why America is called a representative democracy.

I really don´t think Obama understands the roles and functions and limitations of the three branches of government and the thinking behind the system. It is obvious, of course, that he does not like the system - but remarks like this latest one give me the eerie feeling that, incredible as it sounds, he actually does not understand how the system is supposed to work.

The defiance that I see here is coming from you mister. 70% of Americans on both sides of the aisle did not want your healthcare abomination, yet you forced it on us.

At least 60% of Americans don´t want you ignoring the Constitution by grabbing guns, or ignoring repeated calls for sealed borders and enforcing existing immigration laws, but here we go again sweetie, you are defying the will of the American people.

That you are so ignorantly tone deaf is the nicest thing I can say about you and your Mrs. The Lord picked a ´good one´ to get His ball rolling, did He not?

What´s really unimaginable is that an America-hating, racist, malignant Narcissist and Marxist ideologue bent on the utter destruction of the United States of America could be elected POTUS - TWICE! After a complete and utter failure of all of his policies and truly stunning displays of gross incompetence, the low-information/illegal/self-loathing whites/96% of blacks/everybody looking for government "freebies" put this malignancy back in office in order to complete the destruction he began in his first term.

The United States we once knew is dead. Nothing short of Civil War will bring it back.

#22, I agree with what you say, except for the Civil War part. I´m sorry to say I think we are already past that level.

Our side has the guns. I think Obama is clearly preparing to confront us with a combination of his OFAs (´Organizing for Action´ brownshirts), local police, and the military. And he´s been stockpiling weapons for what he thinks are ´his people´.

The OFAs would definitely want to fight and would have weapons, but almost none of them have any concept of military operations. Most of the military would refuse to follow unconstitutional orders, since they swore to defend the Constitution, not the rocket scientist in the White House. And I believe most of the police would break our way too. Some law enforcement officers are already on record that they would not enforce any increased gun-grabbing laws.

I sure hope I´m wrong about this.

Fast-food protests to

NEW YORK -- Fast-food protests are planned for several U.S. cities Tuesday as labor organizers look to bring attention to practices they say illegally deprive workers of their wages. The protests are planned for about 30 cities, but it´s not clear what the scope of the turnout will be. It´s part of an ongoing campaign by labor groups to build support for pay of $15 an hour and bring attention to the rights of low-wage workers. Organizers have also been referring workers to attorneys, who filed lawsuits in three states last week saying McDonald´s was stealing their wages in a

Maybe Barack Obama should have given Zach Galifianakis an off-ramp, like the one he keeps trying to offer Vladimir Putin. Those were some pretty barbed lines the president unloaded on the comic actor last week in their semi-parodic "Between Two Ferns" interview. In case you´re wondering why I´m writing about this—well, I am too. A Malaysian jetliner has vanished into thin air, while Russia has completed its seizure of Crimea and may yet invade other parts of Ukraine. Serious stuff, you might say. But the big story of last week as far as the president is concerned is his appearance alongside

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

Secession: Following Sunday´s forced referendum and despite U.S. and European Union sanctions, it looks like Russia will succeed in separating Crimea from Ukraine. Are the borders of every country now up for grabs? We´ve heard all the arguments, including that Crimea´s population is 58% Russian, and that it was only in 1954, during the Soviet era under Nikita Khrushchev — himself a Ukrainian — that it became part of Ukraine. But allowing Crimea to be pried away from Ukraine by threat of force after Russia´s fraudulent referendum sends a signal to disgruntled regions of the world that, when it comes to borders,

LOS ANGELES — A National Guard reservist has been arrested at the U.S.-Canada border in Washington for allegedly trying to aid al-Qaida in a plot to attack a Southland subway. Nicholas Teausant, 20, of Acampo, Calif., was charged Monday with attempting to provide material to support a foregoing terrorist organization, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office said. Teausant was arrested at the Canadian border “with the intent of continuing to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, a foreign terrorist organization more widely known as al-Qaida in Iraq,” officials said.

Paris — As Russia absorbs Crimea and masses 60,000 troops on Ukraine’s border, is the West serious about sanctions against Moscow? The best test could come this Tuesday, when the defense and foreign ministers of Russia and France are scheduled to meet for long-planned talks on relations between the two countries. French president François Hollande has already announced that “there will be sanctions Monday on visas and assets of a certain number of [Russian] individuals if there is no de-escalation.” But he absolutely must go further. Three years ago, France signed a military contract worth $1.7 billion to build two advanced-technology Mistral-class

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

(Video) The Obama ladies are in the house — the house of China, that is. First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics.

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act.

Secretary of State John Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday morning to protest insults the Israeli defense minister directed at the Obama administration this week, the State Department said. In a speech at Tel Aviv University on Monday, Moshe Ya’alon criticized President Obama for having a weak foreign policy, and said Israel could no longer rely on the United States to lead nuclear negotiations with Iran. “Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning.

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more. Scandals like Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, CIA

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016.

The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs.

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am.

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers. The president made his pitch to "especially all the moms out there who may have young people – 26, 27, do not have health insurance, but they think they’re invincible and nothing’s ever going to happen to ‘em – what we’ve said is you never know what life is going to throw at ya."
