Obama’s Under the Radar Gun Control Plan

Down the Memory Hole: Time Magazine, Monday, August 10, 2009:

This traffic of heavy weaponry from American gun stores to Mexican drug cartels will once again feature in talks between the U.S. and Mexico when President Barack Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderón meet at a North American summit in Guadalajara on Aug. 9 and Aug. 10. Mexico with its strict gun laws has long complained that the vast majority of firearms used by the gangs wreaking havoc here are bought in El Norte. Meanwhile, Obama has said — more unequivocally than any previous President — that the U.S. has a responsibility to stop American guns getting into the hands of the mobsters.

Obama concedes that one major problem in stopping the traffic is the strength of U.S. gun laws — and the gun lobby supporting them. Mexican officials have pushed for the United States to reinstate a Clinton-era ban on assault rifles. Such weapons — especially Kalashnikovs and AR15s — are behind the vast majority of Mexican gang-killings. Both types of guns have been sold widely in Arizona and Texas since the U.S. ban on sale of assault weapons was repealed in 2004. A 2008 Supreme Court decision reinforces the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, making a future ban even more difficult. In his first visit to Mexico in April, Obama said apologetically that it was beyond his power to overturn that. “Assault weapons, as we now know here in Mexico, are helping to fuel extraordinary violence,” he said. “Having said that none of us are under any illusion that reinstating that ban would be easy.”

What did we not know then that we know now? We know now that Administration was buying guns from US dealers and sending them to Mexican drug lords in Mexico. At the same time, he was complaining that the the gun lobby is preventing him from stopping the flow of guns into Mexico. In other words, Obama sent the guns to Mexico and then blamed it on gun dealers and the NRA.

Why, it is almost like he was working behind the scenes on an under the radar gun control strategy.

Anti-gun activist Sarah Brady claims President Barack Obama is committed to stealth gun control according to a report in The Washington Post.

Recounting a March 30 meeting between Brady, her husband Jim and White House Press secretary Jay Carney, The Post reports:

During the meeting, President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda,” she said.

“I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Brady recalled the president telling them. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

You don’t need CSI Miami to crack this case, do you?

Something seems very familiar here.

Actually, I think CNN is finally starting to be able to distinguish which one is Shinola.


Insight for understanding the Public Menace

I’ve been searching for this publication for a week now. This is a masterful piece that has proven to be very prophetic. It was first published in June of 2009. It is high time to re-publish it here.

Had Americans been able to stop obsessing over the color of Barack Obama’s skin and instead paid more attention to his cultural identity, maybe he would not be in the White House today. The key to understanding him lies with his identification with his father, and his adoption of a cultural and political mindset rooted in postcolonial Africa.

Like many educated intellectuals in postcolonial Africa, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was enraged at the transformation of his native land by its colonial conqueror. But instead of embracing the traditional values of his own tribal cultural past, he embraced an imported Western ideology, Marxism. I call such frustrated and angry modern Africans who embrace various foreign “isms”, instead of looking homeward for repair of societies that are broken, African Colonials. They are Africans who serve foreign ideas.

Another noteworthy and prophetic quote from the article…

My friends, despite what CNN and the rest are telling you, Barack Obama is nothing more than an old school African Colonial who is on his way to turning this country into one of the developing nations that you learn about on the National Geographic Channel. Many conservative (East, West, South, North) African-Americans like myself — those of us who know our history — have seen this movie before…

The closing sentence…

Also, understand this: the African colonial who is given too much political power can only become one thing: a Despot.

Eww… ” Please, America, let’s agree to never have a vagina protest ever again.”

From NakedDC.com:

I don’t really care what your position is on the Great Michigan Vagina Debate, America. We disagree on the rules of decorum, I’m sure, and on our own independent analysis of the problem at hand and whether or not, exactly, Michigan is attempting to, in fact, legislate anyone’s vagina. I maintain that, in the name of scientific accuracy, they are, in fact, not attempting to legislate anyone’s vagina. If anything, they are legislating uteruses. Or uterii. Or whatever.

But let’s get one thing straight. Although I have no objection to saying the word, vagina, I do have an objection to knowing about yours. And frankly, I would assume that, in the immortal words of a former Michigan legislator, no one currently or formerly in the Michigan legislature has ever given a single thought to any of these womens’ actual vaginas.

And the protest yesterday only served to reiterate that point.”


Reid: Obama’s Use Of E.P. “Like Saying “I’m King”

I’m sorry. He was talking about George Bush. I guess it’s different when a Democrat’s in office.

Executive Privilege Invoked To Protect The Constitution

Of course, it has nothing to do with protecting Obama & Holder’s asses.

When did Barry become concerned with the Constitution?

Update – Issa: Holder’s Contempt Vote

23-17. It’s headed to the full house next week. –

Voting on strictly partisan lines, a House committee recommended Wednesday that Attorney General Eric Holder be cited for contempt of Congress for failing to turn over documents relating to the botched Fast and Furious weapons sting operation.

The measure now goes to the full House for consideration, expected next week, of what would be an unprecedented event – Congress holding a sitting attorney general in contempt.

So let me see if I have this right…

Terrorist kill list: Not secret
Bin Laden raid details: Not secret
Development of virus to attack Iran nuclear program: Not secret

Do I have that about right?


Death panels for the elderly in Britain

But that could never happen here. That Sarah Palin is just a nut, right?

NHS doctors are prematurely ending the lives of thousands of elderly hospital patients because they are difficult to manage or to free up beds, a senior consultant claimed yesterday.

Professor Patrick Pullicino said doctors had turned the use of a controversial ‘death pathway’ into the equivalent of euthanasia of the elderly.

He claimed there was often a lack of clear evidence for initiating the Liverpool Care Pathway, a method of looking after terminally ill patients that is used in hospitals across the country.

It is designed to come into force when doctors believe it is impossible for a patient to recover and death is imminent.

It can include withdrawal of treatment – including the provision of water and nourishment by tube – and on average brings a patient to death in 33 hours.

MSNBC Host: On America’s “Horrific Racial Violence” Post 9/11

She is saying that America always requires a racial enemy and after 9/11, brown people became it. She says this was caused by fear and PTSD. Her evidence for PTSD is that black men in New York were wearing NYPD hats.

Obama Surrogate: “The Economy Has Turned The Corner”

I don’t want the message to be lost, in the heat of the holder contempt hearings, but I fear it might.

Tom Vilsack, former Iowa Governor & current AgSec, said “the economy has turned the corner”.

Unfortunately, it turned down a dead-end street!


Ouch: Obama Tries “To Hide Behind Executive Privilege”

In the age of the new media – politicians will have two options –

1) Stop running off at the mouth for political gain.


2) Put controls in place to prevent the new media from being effective.

Here’s Barry in 2005 explaining what the Attorney General’s job is. I wonder if he’ll follow his own advice:


Holder will have a bus stop named after him.

Holder is looking to invoke executive privilege.  That’s going to bite Obama on the ass, and here’s the reason(s) why:

Mr. Holder would be left with three choices: standing by as a U.S. attorney begins prosecuting him; directing the U.S. attorney not to prosecute him; or invoking executive privilege to justify not releasing the documents Congress seeks.  There are huge downsides to all three. Let’s take them one by one.

A sitting attorney general under federal prosecution would be fatally weakened, with his continuing presence in the job a fat target for the president’s political opponents. On the other hand, ordering a U.S. attorney not to prosecute him suggests a massive conflict-of-interest, not to mention conveying that he has something to hide. Ditto for “executive privilege.” Not only does executive privilege have a tainted history, it couldn’t be invoked without admitting that the White House is also implicated in Fast and Furious.

Is Obama going to bail out Holder with Executive Privilege? Don’t bet on it.  Obama’s track record would indicate that something big, yellow and oddly “bus-like” is headed for Mr. Holder…


Holder: “The Executive Branch Is Above The Law”

Congressman Darrel Issa reports on his meeting with Attorney General Eric Holder:

Sadly the Attorney General said in the meeting that if we go forward with contempt we’d get no cooperation from that time forward. On the other hand he said that if we would take the briefing we’d have to close the case. We’re sorta between a rock and a hard spot.

We really have to go forward – yes contempt is unusual and the US Attorney pleading the case before a federal judge in DC can take some time and unfortunately during that time we don’t expect to get a lot of new discovery. But again, you really have no choice when the executive branch says no we won’t allow you to look into misconduct within the executive branch.”

Breaking: Obama asserts executive privilege on behalf of Holder

Obama jumps into Fast and Furious with a claim of executive privilege. It doesn’t head off the contempt charges but Obama is now all in on the Fast and Furious cover up. This goes to the top.

President Obama has granted an 11th-hour request by Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents, a last-minute maneuver that appears unlikely to head off a contempt vote against Holder by Republicans in the House.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to forge ahead with its meeting on the contempt resolution anyway.

Rubio Being Vetted For VP Slot

I like what Mittens and his team are trying to do here. I think the media sees it, though. Team Romney is trying to get the left worked into a lather so the left will do the vetting for them.

If there’s any dirt to be found, the crazies on the left will find it. If not, they’ll just make shit up.

Mitt Romney told reporters in Michigan that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is being looked at as his possible running mate, adding that a news story out today about the Tea Party favorite not being vetted was “entirely false.”

“Marco Rubio is being thoroughly vetted as part of our process,” Romney said during a campaign stop in Holland, Mich.

ABC News reported this morning that the freshman senator was not being vetted to be Mitt Romney’s running mate. The report cited “knowledgeable sources.”


“There was a story that originated today apparently at ABC based upon reports of supposedly outside unnamed advisers of mine. I can’t imagine who such people are,” Romney said. “But I can tell you this: They know nothing about the vice presidential selection or evaluation process. There are only two people in this country who know who are being vetted and who are not, and that’s Beth Myers and myself.

“The story was entirely false,” he said. “Marco Rubio is being thoroughly vetted as part of our process.”


Economic vandalism

US teens face worst summertime hiring since World War II.

For the third year in a row, American teenagers hoping to land summer jobs will face the worst teen hiring slump since World War II.

The unemployment rate for 16- to 19-year-olds is 24.9 percent nationally, and in some major cities the rate is much higher. In Washington, DC, the teen unemployment rate is 51.7 percent.

Some Democrats want to increase minimum wage.

U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has written legislation for the U.S. House that would increase the minimum wage to $10 per hour.

Jackson says he will introduce the bill Wednesday in Washington. Under his proposal the federal minimum wage would increase $2.75 per hour. The federal minimum wage has been $7.25 since 2007.

The Chicago Democrat says the legislation will affect more than 30 million workers. He says former independent presidential candidate and consumer advocate Ralph Nader encouraged him to introduce the legislation.

Do I even need to comment further regarding the economic idiocy of the left?


Lawrence O’Donnell is a jerk

This would be the same ass who went had a foaming at the mouth conniption over the Swift Boaters in 2004.

For the record, Ann rode horses for her MS, not necessarily this horse and Mitt didn’t really say she was the athlete, he said…

Isn’t that something? Yeah, it’s not me. It’s my wife, of course. She’s the athlete, but in this case, it’s not her personally, but she along with two other people purchased a horse and have trained it up.


Joe The Plumber Supports The Second Amendment

And it’s driving the left nuts. CBS:

Congressional candidate Samuel Wurzelbacher – who is better known as “Joe The Plumber” – is defending a controversial campaign video that suggests gun control led to the Holocaust.

National Jewish Democratic Council President and CEO David A. Harris criticized the spot Tuesday and called on Wurzelbacher to apologize.

“Using the memories of the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust to make a political point is never appropriate, under any circumstances,” he said in a statement. “For Ohio Republican House candidate Samuel Wurzelbacher to imply that these innocent lives were taken because of gun control laws is simply beyond the pale.”

Wurzelbacher defended the video to Politico.

“Different countries around the world have tried to disarm their citizens, and then have tried to exterminate their own now-unarmed citizens,” he said.

Added Wurzelbacher: “If people are looking to be offended by this video, they are probably serving a political agenda. Unfortunately there are a lot of whiners out there.”

I’ve known quite a few English speaking Communists in my day. Many of them love to talk about how they were tortured by U.S. Forces. None of their claims ever work out to be true. Seriously, we preferred to shoot them on the spot but most of them were such crying-ass Cowards that we thought it unmanly to harm them in any way.

One of my theories as to why this often happens is because (of course) they want their enemies to seem inhumane while they make themselves out to be a Hero who endured the heavy hand of the Enemy Oppressor. It is also something they use to attempt to justify whatever criminal acts they engage in as part of their Revolution.

HERE is another Lie that the U.S. Media never cared to investigate.

Now ask yourself why this Lie was promulgated.


That’s Just Joe Being Joe!

Crazy Uncle Joe gets a bit worked up.


How Will Americans React To Scenes Like These Over Here?

This is a French campaign video which supports Marine Le Pen to defeat Sarkozy in 2012. Her supporters put this together using news footage from across France. Much of the video comes from that country’s security cameras on the street and inside subways.

The scenes are frightening to the French. What has been happening over there is happening in other countries. The ad makes the point that none of the perpetrators have been arrested. Some of the scenes are very graphic.

What will happen here? Will the police refuse to interfere like French police? It’s not about the individual policemen. They take their orders from above. That is no different here.

Most, if not all, of the rioters are either Muslims or supporters of Islam.


“Texas Dad Who Killed Daughter’s Molester Will Not Face Charges”

Good for him.

The Blaze:

Authorities say the Texas dad who beat his 5-year-old daughter’s molester to death earlier this month near Shiner, Texas will not be charged.

Officials said the Lavaca County grand jury met Tuesday and declined to return an indictment against the father in the death of 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores.”
