Fmr. Obama Senior Adviser Calls for Gun
Confiscation ‘Similar to the One
Australia Instituted’

Washington Free Beacon, by Paul Crookston

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/12/2017 2:37:46 AM

Former Obama White House advisor Dan Pfeiffer called for the United States to implement an Australian-style gun confiscation program in an article published on Wednesday. Former President Barack Obama previously said in 2016 that the United States should consider following the example of Australia, which enacted a "mandatory buy-back" of guns and created a gun registry. Pfeiffer echoed that view in Wednesday´s article, published on Crooked, a media site founded by three former Obama staffers. Pfeiffer argued Democrats should propose such a program and outlined an extensive regimen of gun restrictions that Democrats could support, advising they stop "insincere pandering"

I guess if the democrat party wants to commit suicide, this idea would be the quickest way.

Again the democrats show that they can compete with the best of them, i.e. against the stupid party (i.e. republicans) for ideas that are self-defeating. So I say go for it! This Obozo mental midget Mr. Pfluffernutter is the perfect/quintessential example of what we were spared had Kankles Clinton been elected.

No wonder they are in such a rush to confiscate guns. Reading the articles about the hundreds of millions of dollars given to domestic terror groups by not just George Soros, but the Kellogg Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Ben and Jerry Foundation, and others, should alert the citizenry that very well-funded domestic terrorism is the plan of "the Resistance".

Anti-Fa plan on nationwide uproar on November 4th. How much destruction have the Foundations purchased?

My guess is some other Democrat idiot will come out with a modified confiscation plan to just take all semi-auto weapons hand guns and long guns. The msm would go wild for that confiscation. That would leave us with only revolvers and bolt action rifles. They will want to just take some of our guns but not leave us defenseless. The Republicans better not fall for that BS! I´m not selling any of my semi-autos to the Feds period!

And they will drone on and on "nobody want´s to take your guns away." Hillary also suggested we should consider the Aussie approach. The only way they can possibly get a significant slice of the 300K firearms in the US is by house to house searches the 2nd, 4th and 5th amendments would need to be stricken. They can entertain thoughts of that scope but can´t fathom how we´d rid ourselves of 20 million illegal aliens.

Progs are always arguing over the amendments based on unique circumstances, such as the Founders didn´t have drones or semi-autos.
The 1st wasn´t meant to cover hate speech, or anything else they don´t like at the moment.

The Constitution wasn´t written to cover specifics; it was meant to be a philosophy written into law protecting our natural rights from government intrusion. We had just won a war with our odious king. What else could it be protecting?
From time to time there will be conflicts with it, but the Constitution must be adhered to as written. Otherwise, like an old building with a crumbling foundation, it will fall apart.

I say the Democrats should bring on confiscation and have it decided in the streets.

Unfortunately a lot of the liberal Democrats who have been flapping their gums about taking away people’s guns are nothing but cowards, who if they were attacked, would just lay down and die rather then fight back against their attacker.

Eight people were killed, including a 64-year-old woman who was struck by a stray bullet, and at least 11 other people were wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening. The 64-year-old woman, identified as Cynthia Trevillion, was killed when a stray bullet struck her about 6:30 p.m. Friday in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Trevillion, a “beloved” math teacher at Chicago Waldorf School, was standing on the sidewalk near her home in the 6900 block of North Glenwood when shots were fired from a dark-colored SUV.

Harvey Weinstein has been exposed in the media as the sexual predator he is, and Hillary Clinton has been exposed as the craven money grubber she is; money over morality is the mantra she lives by. These people, the DC and Hollywood elite, live by different rules, rules under which faith, hope and love have no place, no place at all. They are about two things and two things only: power and money. And the two species feed off each other. The entertainment industry wants and craves the deference of Democrat elites.

You´ll have about 10 minutes between finding out a nuclear bomb is heading for Washington on a ballistic missile and the moment it explodes over the city. At least that´s the best guess from experts. And that´s really a best-case scenario if the bomb comes from a North Korean missile. If it´s a Russian or Chinese missile carrying a nuclear bomb? Even less. Most Washingtonians have spent at least a little time over the past few weeks wondering what´s going to happen as Kim Jong Un and President Trump rattle sabers on Twitter and in the press.

When Bill Clinton was at the height of the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal, Hollywood was by his side, offering donations for his legal fees, and one significant donor was a man who is now going through his own sex scandal—Harvey Weinstein. (Photo) More than 20 women have publicly accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, sexual assault or rape. After the New York Times and the New Yorker published in-depth stories detailing the testimonies of women who have been abused by Weinstein—and in many cases, paid off with airtight non-disclosure agreements—the stories have continued to come to light.

One CNN columnist said he had become "America´s conscience," but he has rejected that label. "I´m nobody´s moral arbiter. You don´t have to watch the show.

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board is accusing Democrats and “the Beltway media” of ignoring questions raised about the Trump dossier and the firm behind the infamous and uncorroborated document, Fusion GPS. What’s significant about the newspaper’s piece is that Fusion GPS was co-founded by three former Journal reporters, Glenn Simpson, Peter Fritsch and Tom Catan. But that relationship provides no cover for the Fusion trio. “The Beltway media move in a pack, and that means ignoring some stories while leaping on others.

Austrian foreign minister Sebastian Kurz, 31, claimed the win on Sunday night after projections gave his party a comfortable lead with more than 90 percent of the ballots counted.

You know the NFL take-a-knee protests have lost their oomph when even the San Francisco 49ers can only muster seven kneelers. The San Francisco team has led the league in protesters — by a lot — in the last two weeks, with 30 players refusing to stand for the national anthem on Oct. 1 and then 23 on Oct. 8, which prompted Vice President Mike Pence to walk out of the game. At Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins, however, just seven players, all 49ers, took a knee on the sideline, while the rest stood. Last week in Indianapolis, 20

Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016.

Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

Jimmy Kimmel says he’s laid off the Harvey Weinstein jokes because he’s not the “moral conscience of America” (there’s also a video of him asking young women to guess what’s in his crotch. And suggesting they feel it and put their mouths on it).Famously, NBC is playing shy about the scandal, having refused to broadcast the detailed exposé by Ronan Farrow, who took it to the New Yorker which did publish it. The story has laid bare the hypocrisy of the media giants, Democratic biggies, and the Hollywood virtue signalers.

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with
