Obama/Susan Rice Thumb Their Noses at Congress, the US and 4 Dead Americans

What Difference Does It Make!

What Difference Does It Make!

If you had any illusions that Obama and Susan Rice have any respect for Congress, the people of the US seeking answers to the attacks on our Consulate in Benghazi, or the memory of and families of Ambassador Chris StevensTyrone Woods, Glen Doherty or Sean Smith,  you can now rest peacefully that neither Obama or Rice have any respect nor regard for any of us.  On September 11th, 2013, one year after the massacre at Benghazi and the immediate coverup by Obama and Rice, Obama is sending Rice to brief Congress in Obama’s pending attack on Syria!!!  Wonder if she will bring a video?

     If any of the members of Congress sit through this briefing they are complicit in the coverup, the disdain for the American people, and the disrespect of the families of the fallen. House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers (R.-Mich.), should absolutely call for a boycott of the briefing and demand the Obama Administration send a credible representative.  At this point, I would trust Bashar Al Assad, more than anyone from this administration to tell us the truth on the use of chemical weapons in Syria by Assad!

I cannot imagine any self-respecting person subjecting themselves to this show of arrogance and complete contempt for US values and the lives of our diplomats and servicemen and women.  If any congressperson shows up, please send them a note telling them of their failure to uphold their oath to defend the US Constitution and their obligation to protect its citizens…

Egypt-How Inept Can We Get?

Egypt Flag     There is very little common sense coming out of Washington DC regarding the crisis in Egypt and what our role, and indeed the role of all   civilized societies, should be regarding Egypt.  The Obama Administration set up the downfall of Mubarak and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood to political power.  Obama is still trying to force Muslim Extremism onto Egyptian society by pressuring the Military in Egypt to temper their response to the Muslim Brotherhood.  Then you have our inept Republican hacks who can’t stay away from a TV camera or a Sunday Talk Show screaming that we have to pull all aid our of Egypt.  Most of the Democratic hacks can’t figure out who to back or what to do!

How About We Do the Right Thing for Egypt, and the Right Thing for the US?  (For a Change)

Egypt Today!

  1. Muslim Brotherhood = Terrorism:  The Muslim Brotherhood is an International, Radical Islamic group hell-bent on establishing Islamic Republics, NOT DEMOCRACIES AS OBAMA KEEPS SAYING, all over the Middle East and the World.
  2. International Muslim Brotherhood:  The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated all western countries through the spread of the MUSLIM STUDENT ASSOCIATIONS, that are student fronts for the radicalization of whatever country they have infiltrated.
  3. Nature of Egyptians:  The Egyptian People themselves are NOT radical.  They are extremely POOR.  Egypt is the largest importer of grain in the world.
  4. Egyptian Military:  The Egyptian Military, by and large, are the people and the only “political” group who has the overall best interest of the Egyptian people.
  5. Egypt’s Poverty Problem:  The majority of the 83,000,000 plus Egyptians live on $2.00 per day without any prospects for improvement in spite of the industrious nature of the people.
  6. Egypt’s Stable Past:  Egypt has been one of the few stable, Western Friendly, nations in the Middle East and the only Arab nation with a treaty with Israel.
  7. Role of Tourism:  Tourism is one of the very few sources of Free Foreign Currency for Egypt and with the radicalization of the country via the Muslim Brotherhood tourism is at an all time low.

What the US and Civilized Nations Need to Do NOW!

  1. Stand Behind the Military:  Our President needs to stand before the world and say that we are standing behind the Military and will work with them to establish a non military government as soon as the country has been stabilized politically and economically,  No artificial timelines nor demands for new constitutions.  Egypt needs some breathing room
  2. Economic Vs Military Aid:  Western Civilization, especially the US, needs to create an Aid package that is economic and focuses on providing the Military Government with food to feed the Egyptians then coupled with a solid US-AID program to develop the hundreds of thousands of acres along the Nile and south and west of the Aswan Dam for food production to PERMANENTLY lift the Egyptians out of poverty.  Egypt has that rare combination of land and water that can be developed for the good of the entire region.  Egypt has been historically an agrarian based culture and we need to help them re-establish those roots.
  3. War on Terror Based Military Aid:  Western Civilization needs to create a Military Aid program that focuses on providing less of outward focused military to a military that can protect Egypt from internal terrorism, including that from the Muslim Brotherhood.
  4. Give the Military and the People Time:  We need to make sure the military has sufficient time to sit down with legitimate factions inside of Egypt, excluding the Muslim Brotherhood, and formulate their own government structure which may or may not be our idea of a democracy.  We forced the military before, after the hasty ousting of Mubarak, to have elections and put on a pretense that Egypt was back to normal.  What hypocrites we are.  It took the US over 12 years to come up with our new government after declaring our independence!  Egypt needs time for the internal political groups to coalesce and form.

We need to stop the political rhetoric in our country regarding what the Egyptian People need to do.  They are intelligent and they can and will figure it out if the US, the UN and Europe stays out of their internal “birthing” of a new society.  Micky and Minnie Mouse, McCain and Graham, need to stay off of the talk shows and stay HOME!  Not a one of these politicians have ever lived among the Egyptian people or been over to one the homes of a middle class Egyptian and attended one of their kid’s birthday parties.  I have.  We need to do our part to make sure Iran and the Palestinians do not export their Islamic radicals to Egypt to further exacerbate the internal problems facing Egypt today.

Alas, I do not believe Obama nor our Republican or Democrat politicians will do the right thing in the end.  Obama is bent on establishing radical Islamic regimes throughout the Middle East and heaven only know what the rest of these politicians are trying to do.

Why do African-Americans Vote to Defeat Themselves?

black on black violenceBlack Activist View:

Black activists are quick to whip up Black emotions over Trayvon Martin but totally ignore the inner city deaths of hundreds of other Black youths in cities like Chicago and Oakland.  Black activist are quick to attack any seemingly “white” opposition to Obama while not asking Obama why Black unemployment in all age groups exceeds every other major ethnic group?  Black activists are quick to back Public Sector Unions such as the teacher’s unions who in turn fight against innovation in education through the use of school vouchers, more charter schools, and making educators, administrators and teachers, responsible for TEACHING Black children.  Black activists were quick to back welfare and welfare rules that excluded fathers of color from being part of the family and promoted out-of-wedlock births by Black teenagers in order to secure a revenue stream via welfare before they turned 18.  Why do Black activist support immigration amnesty when the flood of illegal aliens only serves to take more jobs away from American Black workers?

  • The #1 question then is why do Black Voters continue to vote in leftist, mainly white, progressives who perpetuate the economic slavery and illiteracy in the Black Communities?  These are the same white progressives, the same Democrat Party, who fought against Lincoln and the Republican Party who were trying to end slavery.  These are the same white progressives who used to don white robes and wear pointed hats, burn crosses and persecute Blacks throughout the South. 

The Other View:

White Conservatives wholeheartedly embrace the following policies that would lift all minorities out of poverty and allow them to compete in today’s world.  The “Black Leadership”, Obama, Sharpton, and Jackson are diametrically opposed to these same policies…

  1. School Vouchers:  Voucher programs are designed to provide an alternative to our failed public education system and especially give those in the inner cities a way UP out of a life time sentence of literacy.  This is NOT a program for whites!  This is designed to give all who have been born into poverty, inner city drug cultures, and single or non-existent parents.
    1. Detroit:  2011 statistics from The National Institute for Literacy estimated that 47% of the adult population of Detroit was Illiterate.  Don’t let the teacher’s unions blame funding.  Detroit Spent over $15,000 per student in 2011 compared to a national average of $10,000.  So, by spending 50% more, the city generated an illiteracy rate of almost 50%!  YOU DESERVE BETTER.
    2. Chicago:  This once stellar city has also turned its back on the Black neighborhoods and school systems driving a literary rate of only 63 percent. This means that 37 percent of the population are not literate or cannot read/write. The nation has a literacy rate of 99.0 percent.  Now, Mayor Rahm just closed 100 schools in Chicago, guess where most of the schools were?  Black Children now have to walk further, through gang ridden streets, to try to get an education.  YOU DESERVE BETTER.
  2. Blind Allegiance to Teacher’s Unions:  The black leadership, including Obama, Sharpton and Jackson and others stand behind the failed Teacher’s Unions to protect their own political contributions and the African-American community stands by these leaders.  Here is the cycle.  “Black Leaders” support Teacher’s Unions;  Teacher’s Unions collect dues from teachers;  Teacher’s Unions give their Money to the “Black Leaders”!  Meanwhile you are denied access to School Vouchers because that would hurt the Teacher’s Unions and Your “Black Leadership”.
  3. Black Genocide:  The left, aided and abetted by Obama-Jackson-Sharpton (OJS) et al., promote wholesale abortion in the Black Communities.  Non-Hispanic Blacks make up 12% of the US population but account for 1/3 of the abortions in the US.  That is three times their population percentage.  This is certainly akin to Legal Black Genocide by the very persons who are self proclaimed “Leaders” of the Black Community.  This culture of death and lowered value for Black Life leads into the Black on Black Violence issues…
  4. Black Murder Rate:  The Trayvon Martin case was turned into a “White on Black” violence and an alleged showcase of how Whites are racist by Obama-Jackson-Sharpton (OJS) et al.  Facts of the shooting, the hyper vigilant drive by the State to bend over backward to prosecute Zimmerman, the eventual jury verdict did nothing to offset the racial views of the outcome of the trial.  All the while, WHITE CONSERVATIVES were clamoring for a much wider discussion, “Why are Black Children and Youth being slaughtered in American streets, especially Chicago!”  Even Van Jones, not exactly a lover of White Conservatives, said,”
    “Conservatives have weighed in; they said they are very concerned about the killings in Chicago and in other urban environments.”  Further he stated, “

    “There may be a Jack Kemp silent majority of conservatives that are heartbroken about the killings.”  the OJS group is blaming Gun Control, White Racism, and even trying to stretch the “Stand Your Ground” Laws, supported by Obama before for Illinois, as the reason for Black Violence in Chicago and elsewhere.

    The truth is that there is Racism aimed at the Black Community.  Unfortunately it is by Liberal Politicians and the OJS group and their ilk.  Who benefits by keeping the Black Community down?  Not the White Conservatives.  Who gets the dollars from unions that protect failing school systems and teachers?  The Left and the Democrat Party.

    This year is the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I have a Dream” speech.  Maybe it is time we start living that dream…Remembering August 28, 1963

US Military May Lead the Way to the Elimination of Christianity!

church and stateChristianity, with the Catholic Church as its surrogate, will face direct challenges to core beliefs and practices from the Federal Government.  The three “fronts” that will be attacked are Gay Marriage, the Freedom to Express Religious Opinions Openly and of course Abortion.  The Federal Government will use the IRS to choke Christian and other religions into submission via the withdrawal of their tax exempt status and the withholding of grants to Christian Charities.

  The Catholic Church has already curtailed its adoption services when the Federal Government tried to force the Church to adopt children to gay couples.  Rather than lose its tax exempt status, which would have also hurt contributors to Catholic Charities, this organization shut down its adoption service group.  The other unwritten policy against the Catholic Church/Christianity is a policy by HHS referred to by the Church as ABC, “Anybody But Catholics” (1).  This practice could also be described as Anybody but Christians. This practice eliminated the Catholic Church from receiving funding under a longstanding grant program administered by HHS for Human Trafficking.  The Federal Government would rather shut down a highly successful and acclaimed Catholic Program than have the Catholic Church help thousands in need…and over the recommendation of their own staff and an independent review board!

How will the Military be used?  First of all, those in the military, including Priests, Ministers, Rabbis, and Muslim clerics, are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice that in many ways override an individual’s Constitutional Rights.  We all recognize the special nature of military service and the need for an absolute submission to military authority, but when social engineering supersedes the military’s sole charter to protect our nation against foreign enemies, we all need to pause and take stock of what is happening.  Forcing social change onto the military is a simple matter of changing the rules for the military in the UCMJ.  Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution provides that “The Congress shall have Power… To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval forces.”  However, the Executive Branch can, via Executive Order, modify “Manual for Courts Martial”.  This process can change what “offenses” are subject to discipline among other changes to enforce behavior changes within the ranks of the military.  All without Constitutional protections.

  • Military Challenging Christianity:  Lt. Col. Kenneth Reyes, an ordained minister whose duties are to provide religious instruction and spiritual counseling at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska, is currently threatened by actions by his CO, Col. Brian Duffy, for Reyes posting on the Base Website “Chaplin Page”, an essay entitled, “No Atheists in Foxholes: Chaplains Gave All in World War II.”  Sound familiar?  It should.  The sentiment was first opined by President Dwight D. Eisenhower during a 1954 speech when he said, “I am delighted that our veterans are sponsoring a movement to increase our awareness of God in our daily lives. In battle, they learned a great truth that there are no atheists in the foxholes.” (2)  The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), led by activist/atheist Mikey Weinstein blew a gasket and loudly complained to the base commander, Col. Brian Duffy.  Keep in mind Weinstein has penned such gems as; “Christians are fundamentalist monsters seeking to impose a reign of theocratic terror”;  he also described sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ as spiritual rape!  The Obama-Hagel Defense Department has met with Weinstein over the past 4 years listening to his anti-Christian rhetoric and then implementing various levels of restrictions on Chaplains in terms of their evangelization and religious speech.  Lt. Col. Reyes religious freedom was trampled on when the base commander took down the article and is now considering disciplinary action against Reyes!
    • Curtail Freedom of Religious Speech:  The above example is just the beginning of curtailing religious instruction and spiritual counseling in the military for Christians.  Overt evangelization is off-limits already.  This prohibition will be taken to other non-Muslim religions as well.  For some reason, Muslims are exempt from these attacks on religious expression.  You may think that curtailing the Freedom of Religious Speech could not happen in the civilian sector but it already has, CAN YOU PRAY ANYWHERE YOU WANT TO TODAY!!  Absolutely not.  Other forms of Religious Speech will follow suit.
    • Gay Marriage in the Military:  The next step could be the forcing of Chaplains, who have personal and religious objections to Gay Marriage, to have to preside over a marriage between gay couples.  The Chaplains would either have to comply or face Courts Martial, without any recourse to Constitutional challenge.  Soon, Gays will apply to be married in Christian and other houses of worship who believe that marriage is between a man and a women in support of natural law and procreation.  When these religious institutions refuse to perform the ceremony, they will be sued as violating the civil rights of the couple.  It is doubtful that Supreme Court would side with the religious institutions and even if they do, the Federal Government could pull the tax exempt status of the religious institution and withhold any grant funding for their charities.  This test will probably come within the next 6 months…

Abortion:  The Federal Government’s Health and Human Services department has already told the Catholic Church that it must provide abortifacients, sterilization, and ultimately abortions under Obamacare!  This Federal Government is on a mission to systematically dismantle this Nation’s “Under God” creed as envisioned by our founding fathers and as set forth in our US Constitution.   All Christian and other religions must stand together now before it is too late.  The Catholic Church has been singled out due to its size.  Once the largest Church falls, the rest will be easy. 

Whatever your religion, prayer and action are critical at this time.  Don’t stand by until it is too late.  It is already an uphill battle and the longer we wait to oppose the loss of the FREEDOM OF RELIGIOUS EXPRESSION, the harder it will be to turn back this secular tide.

Lindsay Graham-Punish Our Olympic Athletes for Russia’s Action

Minnie GrahamMinnie Mouse (Lindsay Graham, wife of Mickey Mouse, John McCain), displays his utter and unbound ignorance and disregard of Olympic athletics by calling for a boycott of of the 2014 Olympics to be held in Russia, in an effort to “punish” the Russians/Putin for harboring Edward Snowden.  What Minnie Graham does not take into account is that Olympic athletes work tirelessly, UNPAID, unlike US Senators, for years to make it to the Olympics.  Many, if they miss the 2014 Olympics will never have another chance to compete in the Olympics.  For those athletes, and their families who have supported their quest throughout their development, will be left unsated in their quest for Olympic fame.

Minnie Graham is in good company calling for boycotting of Olympics.  The last president to do so was Jimmy Carter who boycotted two Olympic events in 1980.  Maybe Minnie Graham could actually grow up and quit playing Miz RINO of 2013 and actually embrace conservative values and actually work on returning this nation to a rule of law!  Nah!  Too much work.  Better to pick on amateur athletes!.

Jeb Bush Go Away-Immigrants Aren’t More Fertile, They Just Don’t Murder 26% of their Babies!!


Give Me A Chance

Give Me A Chance

For those of you still thinking the Republican Party will run a candidate the would be able to beat the next Left Wing successor to Obama think again.  Jeb Bush is the Republican Insider candidate of choice and he is out spouting off his ignorance for all to see and for the MSM to applaud.  Today Jeb Bush the Lesser actually said that “…Immigrants are more fertile…” than US citizens!  Obviously he is pushing for allowing as many immigrants into this country as possible including granting an easy citizenship for those who are here illegally.  My main issue with Bush the Lesser is his total dismissal of what is causing the decline in American “Fertility”.  Conception is not the problem, ABORTION is the Problem.!  We kill 1 out of every 4 babies conceived and have done so since Roe V Wade in 1973.  But Bush the Lessor, and none of the other RINOs running your party will discuss the infanticide that has infected this nation.  Here are a few quick facts that Bush and the RINOs want to ignore:

In the US , One baby is aborted every

26 seconds
137 every hour
3,304 every day
23,196 every week
100,516 every month
1,206,192 every year

The Republican Party core is anything but conservative and the sooner we accept that the sooner we can fix the problem.  America’s future is dismal indeed if left to the devices of the Democrat and Republican Parties.  They are two sides of the same coin!  The Republican Party is merely a “placeholder” to keep a conservative movement from spawning and challenging the Democrat/Republican establishments.  Winning back the White House with a Jeb Bush type of president, or winning back the Senate with more like Lindsay Graham, John McCain or Mitch McConnell will only slow the bleeding and slide into a progressive hellish mixture of socialism and secular humanism.  Without a new, true conservative party, this nation’s demise is assured.

Obama is the Antithesis of Martin Luther King Jr.

Character or Color?

Character or Color?

One of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s more famous quotes on Freedom from his “I have a dream” speech, was delivered on August 28th, 1963, almost 50 years ago and included these closing words:

“And when this happens, when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:
Free at last! Free at last!
Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”(1)

What Dr. King understood was that no man or woman could be free in a society unless everyone in that society were free.  That the power of the individuals that are bound together in the quest, then the acceptance of Freedom, exceeds all other human conditions and creates a power subservient to only our God.  He understood that government could not give Freedom, without taking away Freedom.  That every man must walk along side of every other man in the Equality of Freedom, and not in the false promise of Freedom through mandated Equality.  The other quote from this same speech that drove home the core of Dr. King was “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”  God placed Dr. King on this earth at a time He knew we needed the guidance of this man to begin the quest for the end of the stigma of slavery and the beginning of the quest for Freedom for all, regardless of race, religion, or gender.  Unfortunately, we have the same need today but there is no one filling the void left by Dr. King.

The first Black president, Barak Obama, unfortunately was not brought up in the heritage of Dr. King but under the tutelage of Black Liberation Theology (BLT) under Reverend Jeremiah Wright, that is based on Marxist ideology through the creation and promotion Black Victimhood.  Wright’s ongoing message is that life for blacks in America has been in the past and will be in the future a life of being victimized by the oppression of whites.  The goal of BLT is the creation of economic equality, not equal Freedom for all.  Marxism and BLT share the common goal of equality through wealth redistribution.  They both ignore the Freedom of Equal Opportunity but instead seek to create “an enemy” that they can use to blame all of their ills and seek to destroy by cries of racism, elitism, etc.  This is at the core of Barak Obama and can be seen and heard in almost every breath he takes and every word he utters. 

Dr. King sought to unite through Freedom, Obama seeks to divide by race, religion and gender in order to redistribute his perception of equality.  Dr. King sought to sow the seeds of peaceful protest to build up the whole of this nation while Obama seeks to pit individuals and institutions against each other to weaken the underpinnings of this nation.  What Dr. King envisioned was the day when we could look at one another and not see the color of the other’s skin, their religious convictions, or their gender but see an equal child of God enjoying the great Freedoms that only this nation, under God, could provide to all.  What Obama envisions is that wealth, opportunity, and freedoms would be taken from his perceived “haves” and redistributed to his perceived “have-nots”.  In short, Dr. King believed that this country had the potential of ensuring Freedom for All regardless of the past;  Obama believes that this country is flawed from its Constitution foundation to today’s unfair society that was built on the backs of the oppressed; Obama’s beliefs are in sync with those of Karl Marx except that Obama blames all whites for these ills versus the Marxists view of the “rich” being the culprit, who could have been black or white.

It is sad that over the past 50 years, we have turned a deaf ear to Dr. King but rather have re-adopted a culture of differences and blaming others for our own condition or circumstances.  This culture of differences in many cases is being promoted and nurtured by the self-appointed “civil rights leaders” of today.  These “leaders” promote practices that only insure that their “people” remain in poverty, undereducated, and are forced to live in the highest crime rate neighborhoods in this nation.  These “leaders” promote whatever the flavor of the day Obama trots out regardless of the consequences to their “constituents”.  They turn their back on their own people and salute the power brokers who use the poorest among us to further their own Marxist goals of wealth and power redistribution. 

Will we ever have another Dr. King in our midst leading us toward a Free human and humane society?  One can only hope.

Obama’s Dog and Pony Show on Guns–None of His 23 Exec Orders Would have Prevented Either the Aurora or Newtown Killings

    The Community Organizer In Chief pulled out all of the stops yesterday in his charade of proposing meaningful solutions to solving gun violence in America.  He was surrounded by Children, he invoked emotions regarding Gun Violence, and he then proceeded to say absolutely nothing that would have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings!  This is typical of a Left Wing ideologue and he was fully support by his employees in the press.  He said absolutely nothing about the media voilence of games, movies, TV series, nor did he propose that schools would be provided with armed officers at each school to help prevent another tragedy.  There are 28,000 schools in the US that have armed officers and none of these have been attacked.  All three of this years tragedies have two things in common, they were all in gun free zones and in states with strict gun laws.  The President also lied when he said that 1.4 million applicants were denied gun purchases due to STATE LEVEL background checks.  The truth really is that the background checks identified 1.4 million applicants to be reviewed and 94% of these were cleared within three days!  He also missed the opportunity to allow all states to adopt background checks AT THE STATE LEVEL but instead did his usual power grab and is proposing a Federal Background Check system.  

     What the President did do was empower Kathleen Sibelius to control guns within Obamacare and made doctors responsible for interviewing their patients on guns in the home and made this reporting mandatory via Obamacare.  Further, he empowered the Department of Education to create an anti-gun campaign in the schools rather than teach responsible gun ownership.  The goals are to turn doctors against their patients and kids against their parents if they own guns.  This is a typical Progressive/Communist tactic that has been employed by Obama.

Here are the 23 points that Obama outlined and our response to those points.

1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background-check system.
Response:  This will provide data into the national database that totally consolidates every piece of information the government has on you and your family.  This includes any information that may have been gathered using the Patriot Act all the way through Obamacare and the Gun Check.  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background-check system.
Response:  Empowers Katherine Sibelius to write whatever regulations she needs to take all of the State’s info on you.  The Federal Background check system has not been defined so there is NO limit on what data is included…   This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.
Response:  Read this to mean that make sure we can punish any State or State agency who refuses to participate with the Federal Background Check program.  The guns used in gun violence this year were obtained outside of the scope of a background check.  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.

4. Direct the attorney general to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.
Response:  The current categories were set by Congress and duly signed into law by a prior administration.  This would give Eric Holder sole authority, albeit unconstitutional, in creating new categories to be excluded from gun ownership.  For example, Holder could add NRA members as a category.  This may sound farfetched but then again so is a law that forces a Free citizen to have to buy government mandated health insurance. This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
5. Propose rule making to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.
Response:  First of all, what is a full background check and why was the gun seized?  Law enforcement can run criminal checks now on any suspect for any reason.  What is the scope that will be expanded?  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
6. Publish a letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.
Response:  These checks are currently under State control and regulated under State Control with excellent training of gun vendors on what is required to be submitted to State Agencies in order to conduct a proper background check.  THIS IS ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO ELIMINATE STATE’S RIGHTS AND CENTRALIZE A FUNCTION WITHIN FEDERAL BUREAUCRACY.  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.  The gun dealer in Aurora reported this killer to the authorities after REFUSING to sell him a gun.
7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.
Response:  First of all, there is no need for an EO to do this.  All the President would have to do is tell the ATF to do this.  Second, anyone who has gone through the gun purchase/registration process and gun safety programs already have sufficient skills.  Plus, the shooters at Newtown and Aurora obviously did not need any more training on how to use a gun!  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).
Response:  Pure fluff.  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

Response:  Maybe the President should get up to speed on criminal law and procedures.  This is already done except guns collected if there were used in the commission of a crime are destroyedThis would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.

10. Release a Department of Justice report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.
Response:  Pure Fluff.  How are you going to analyze lost or stolen guns as you have no idea where they are?  Second, if they are used in a crime, you have already tracked them!  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
11. Nominate an ATF director.
Response:  Mr. President this is already your job to nominate cabinet and sub cabinet appointees!  Just do it!  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.
Response:  This is already in place.  Do you really think a bunch of Washington bureaucrats can teach local law enforcement how to handle local crisis situations!  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.
Response:  Good idea but Obama has a lower enforcement record on prosecuting gun violence than any other president in modern history.  How about cleaning up your home town of Chicago that is subject to horrendous levels of Black on Black violence of teenagers and young black youth.  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.
Response:  This has been prohibited by law and flies in the face of current, adopted legislation.  Further, there are countless studies that have been done but the left does not like the answers, like the assault rifle ban did nothing to curb gun violence…  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
15. Direct the attorney general to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun-safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.
Response:  Maybe Eric Holder could employee tracking tactics that allowed him to lose thousands of guns he unlawfully let go into the hands of drug cartels in Mexico via Fast and Furious. This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.
Response:  Actually Obamacare does prohibit requiring Doctors to collect info on Guns in homes.  Further, physicians are not gun specialists nor is this any of their business!  Just tell you doctor that it is none of his or her business!  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
17. Release a letter to healthcare providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.
Response:  Actually Obamacare does prohibit requiring providers to collect info on Guns in homes.  Further, healthcare providers are not gun specialists nor is this any of their business!  Just tell you provider that it is none of his or her business!  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.
Response:  What is the definition of a school resource officer?  If these are not specified as armed, trained law enforcement personnel this is just another gift to Teachers Unions…  Unless these are armed guards, this would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
19. Develop model emergency-response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.
Response:  Same as #12.  Response:  This is already in place.  Do you really think a bunch of Washington bureaucrats can teach local law enforcement how to handle local crisis situations!   This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.
Response:  This is an expansion of Obamacare and needs to go through Congress and not be merely a dictate.  What will be the financial impact on health insurance premiums?  Is there a better way to provide this assistance?  Will the ACLU continue to block holding a patient over 72 hours?  By itself this is just another power grab under Obamacare.  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within Affordable Care Act exchanges.
Response:  Same as #20 This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.

22. Commit to finalizing mental-health parity regulations.
Response:  Same as #20 This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.
23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sibelius and Duncan on mental health.
Response:  How about stop masking antisocial behavior by our young children using drugs like Ritalin which only masks the behavioral issues until the federal education system can graduate them out of being their problem!!!  This is Nuts.  No pun intended.  I think we understand mental health problems and the consequences for letting mentally ill roam free and unchecked.  This is an attempt to provide Sibelius and Duncan with a way to indoctrinate citizens and children with the administration’s leftist propaganda on mental illness…  This would not have prevented either the Aurora or Newtown killings.

     The heavy lifting to eliminate private gun ownership will come in the next few months.  Harry Reid may or may not shoot down Obama’s call for an outright ban on high-capacity clips and “assault rifles” and put the problem to the House Republicans.  If this passes the Senate and not the House, then look to Obama to take unilateral action to eliminate the clips and rifles.  If something happens to either Supreme Court Justice Scalia, Alito, Thomas and maybe even Kennedy the new leftist court would  not declare Obama’s overriding of the 2nd Amendment unconstitutional.  He has 4 years to wait this out along with his encroachment on the 1st Amendment Freedom of Religion usurpation thought Obamacare.

Is Your Doctor a Doctor or Gun Control Specialist-So Much for Doctor Patient Confidentiality

The New Obamacare

The New Obamacare


The $500,000,000 Gun Grab Plan

      Herr Obama took the first steps today that all dictators around the globe and over the ages take and that is to disarm the citizens.  The Left has coined a new replacement phrase for “Gun Control” which is now “Gun Violence”.  Who could be against Gun Violence?  The Left did the same when they renamed unborn children “Embryos” to lessen the guilt felt by those who aborted their unborn babies.  How about changing Global Warming to Climate Change!  Now they have reassigned the medical community to also be firearms experts and break the doctor-patient relationship by requiring your doctor to report your personal firearm ownership and use within your own home.  Worse yet, they can question you children, without you being present, to grill them on the “gun culture” in your home then report their findings to Herr Obama.  Maybe we should go to a gun shop to get our physical! 

     The 23 “Executive Orders” that Obama is putting in place are filled with nice sounding words but basically give other Federal agencies unilateral control over the creation of new unlawful gun regulations and the unlawful power to enforce their own unlawful regulations!  “Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.”  In short, Katherine Sibelius will make sure that she can direct doctors to rat on the patients regarding their lawful ownership and use of guns within their homes.  There is no law that grants this power to the president or the Secretary of HHS but Herr Obama did it anyway.  What Obama is setting up is a regulatory web that will be used to squeeze guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens while doing nothing to prevent actual atrocities like the Newtown massacre. 

When you peel off the smoke screen around the 23 EOs, it is easy to see where this is all heading.

  • The Federal Government is setting up National Background Checks and a national database to track all LAWFULLY purchased firearms.  They will use the threat of withholding federal funds from State and Local entities who may refuse to implement the National Background Checks even if those agencies believe that this EO is unlawful.  Obama also will empower ALL Federal Agencies to provide “relevant” data for the national gun control database.  So, your right to privacy provided by the Constitution is totally out the window.  REMEMBER, ALL FEDERAL DATA IS SUBJECT TO A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT LAWSUIT TO MAKE THAT DATA PUBLIC…
  • Expanding Who Cannot Own Firearms:  Eric Holder, Fast and Furious Fame, is empowered to circumvent current law that identifies categories of individuals prohibited from purchasing guns and come up with his own categories without being lawfully passed by Congress.  There are no limits in the EO on Holder so he can create whatever categories he thinks necessary!  You could deny Catholics, Tea Party Members, or whoever this bunch of outlaws deem dangerous. 
  • Place Gun Control Under Healthcare:  Several of the EOs empower Kathryn Sibelius of HHS to come up with “guidelines” that require doctors to gather gun information on families who lawfully own firearms by documenting interviews they conduct with their patients and their patients children then pass this information onto the Federal Government! 
    • Doctors will be given marching orders on how to counsel patients on safe gun use and storage!  Who made doctors experts on firearms?
    • Doctors will be required to report any patient that they feel may be a “risk” to society.  This will foster over reporting in order for the doctor not to be sued if one of their patients goes out and stabs someone!  This will do wonders for malpractice insurance rates!
    • Katherine Sibelius has the power to rewrite Obamacare and beef up mental health coverage requirements and direct the State exchanges on what they have to cover.  That will do wonders for health care premiums.
  • Payoff to Teacher’s Unions:  Obama included “incentives” for schools to hire school “resource officers”.  These are not armed guards but additional staff to talk the shooters out of shooting students and probably counseling the shooter in order to raise his self-esteem.

     Most of the 23 EOs do not even require and EO.  Why does Obama need an EO to nominate an ATF direct for the senate to ratify.  THAT IS HIS JOB TO NOMINATE CABINET POSITIONS.   Obama is going to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.  DUH!  This is already the law.  They are kept in evidence until after the prosecution then destroyed.  I am sure Eric Holder will be able to trace the guns like he did with Fast and Furious! 

     Well, we are witnessing the First Amendment being trashed by Obama’s assault on the Freedom of Religion.  Now he is trashing the 2nd Amendment.  He is doing both by merely Trashing the US Constitution and its limits on Presidential Authority.  You are seeing the “Transformation of America” that Obama promised you!
