Obama Praises Gun Bans And Confiscation

This week, President Obama praised the idea of gun bans and confiscation – like the Nazis did in 1938 immediately ahead of the Holocaust.

He is doing the exact opposite of what he promised as a candidate.

You heard it right here on television, I won’t take your rifle away, I won’t take your handgun away.

    That wouldn’t be so bad if the Repubs put up a whimper of protest. Unfortunately they will champion the legislation that will do the deed. Best thing that ever happened to Hussein’s regime is election of a Repub congress and senate. They have greased the skids for his entire devious schemes, better than the previous Demoncrats ever did. Oh, and don’t dream that Kevin McCarthy will be an improvement on tearful Boehner. I know his reputation well, he is ‘my congressman’. He has a history of kissing up to whomever is in power and giving them whatever they ask for, starting with the Governator and his Green Kalifornia initiatives.

      Willy, that was not what I wanted to hear but not unexpected. Actually most people have figured it out.

      Gallup: 60% of Americans Want a New Political Party. But, Why?

      A Gallup poll issued on September 25th is headlined “Majority in U.S. Maintain Need for Third Major Party,” and it opens: “A majority of Americans, 60%, say a third major political party is needed because the Republican and Democratic parties ‘do such a poor job’ of representing the American people.”

      78% of independents want there to be another “major” party; 47% of Democrats do; 45% of Republicans do.

      ….. so, the American people are at a political turning-point, of seriously questioning whether they live in an actual democracy — a country in which the possibility, that the government represents the public instead of some controlling individual or group of individuals, exists. 60% now think that that possibility doesn’t exist — neither party represents it. They think that America, at the very highest governmental level, is no longer an authentic democracy. There actually exists strong evidence that it’s not an authentic democracy.

      Another Gallup poll, issued on September 19th, was headlined “75% in U.S. See Widespread Government Corruption.” 75% answered “Yes” to: “Is corruption widespread throughout the government in this country?” ….Gallup reported, in their poll of perceived corruption, that, “the percentage of U.S. adults who see corruption as pervasive has never been less than a majority in the past decade.” Gallup provided no further details, except that, when Obama came into office, the percentage was 66%. So, a decade back, in 2005, the percentage was somewhere above 50%, and then it was 66% when Obama entered the White House in 2009, and it’s 75% today.

      Regardless of what the explanation is, the American people are feeling increasingly alienated from the government that supposedly represents them. If the U.S. Government is a democracy at all, it’s one whose legitimacy is increasingly being doubted by its public.

      The U.S. Government thus now faces a crisis of legitimacy.

      Was this destruction in our confidence in the US government carefully orchestrated in preparation for takeover? For the final destruction of our Constitutional Republic (whats left of it.)

      Look at what Kent Clizbe has said:

      He [William R. Russell] was in Russia soon after the Bolsheviks seized power and spent considerable time there, working on Creel propaganda against the Germans, for the Bolsheviks, and later against the Bolsheviks. Russell described how he saw the communist tradecraft:

      The way they worked their way to the seizure of power was as follows: Talk about peace, talk about social equality, especially among those most oppressed. Talk about organization of labor, and penetrate into every labor union. Talk on soapboxes. Publish pamphlets and papers. Orate and harangue. Play on envy. Arouse jealousy. Separate class from class. Try to break down the democratic processes from within. Accustom the people to picketing, strikes, mass meetings. Constantly attack the leaders in every way possible so that the people will lose confidence. Then in time of national peril, during a war, on the occasion of a great disaster, or of a general strike, walk into the capital and seize the power. A well-organized minority can work wonders.

      Russell’s spot-on understanding of how the communists worked, based on his own on-location observations in Russia during the revolution should have been useful to him during the next two decades of his work at Columbia. Yet, under his nose, communist covert influence agents like George Counts, who was under Russell’s supervision at Columbia’s Teachers College, used the exact tactics he described—talking, publishing, orating and haranguing, breaking down democracy from within, attacking the leaders, making people lose confidence—to destroy American society.

      Willing Accomplices: How KGB Covert Influence Agents Created Political Correctness and Destroyed America by Kent Clizbe

      Let’s break that down:
      Talk about peace, talk about social equality, especially among those most oppressed.
      CHECK, — All the talk about ‘Social Justice’ and ‘Climate Justice’ (Whatever the heck that is) and #Black Lives Matter.

      Talk about organization of labor, and penetrate into every labor union.
      CHECK, — The labor unions are leftist and when Dad started a union in NYC, the mob muscled in and threatened to kill him and his family.
      “total union political expenditures reached $925 million in the 2004 cycle… eight of the top ten all-time political contributors are labor unions.” (wwwDOT)unionfacts.com/article/political-money/

      Publish pamphlets and papers. Orate and harangue.
      CHECK, — Heck they move on to taking over our pre-schools, schools and universities! See Robin’s arcticles. For example: http://www.invisibleserfscollar.com/destroying-the-dominant-social-paradigm-via-education-for-21st-century-political-power-and-personal-gain/
      Survey shocker: Liberal profs admit they’d discriminate against conservatives in hiring, advancement, ‘Impossible lack of diversity’ reflects ideological intimidation on campus

      Play on envy. Arouse jealousy.
      CHECK, — George Soros,Obama and the rest of his buddies have been accomplishing this in spades!

      Separate class from class.
      CHECK — That seems to be the whole goal of Obama’s admin.

      Try to break down the democratic processes from within.
      CHECK — Can you say campaign $$$, bought and paid for media, voter fraud and the US government targeting of True the Vote?

      Accustom the people to picketing, strikes, mass meetings.
      CHECK — Occupy Wall Street (Again funded by Soros) and the black riots

      Constantly attack the leaders in every way possible so that the people will lose confidence.
      CHECK — Our ‘leaders’ are doing a darn fine job of it all by themselves.

      Then in time of national peril walk into the capital and seize the power.
      CHECK — Destruction of the US power grid, steep rise in prices, maybe hyper inflation and economic collapse with the blacks in the background all primed and ready to riot and destroy.

      October 27, 2014 Ben Carson Warns of Obama Declaring Martial Law If Anarchy Cancels 2016 Election

      …..Carson seems to genuinely believe that the actions of the current administration could lead to civil unrest that could, in turn, lead to the cancellation of the 2016 Presidential Election altogether. Furthermore, Dr. Carson believes that should this happen, President Obama will have reason to implement Martial Law, thus suspending most, if not all of Americans’ constitutional rights….

      If they do not get a Jeb Bush vs Hiltlery Dog and Pony show in 2016, I think this may very well be the fall back position.

      Duke Power is very cozy with Obama and even lent him money for his last campaign and it is Duke Power that is closing down coal plants AND destroying them at record rates on the Eastern seaboard where most US cities are.

      E.M. Smith (ChiefIO) a trained economist on Interesting Economic Order Of Market Fall 8/25/2015. As he says

      … it is hard to sell a whole lot of low priced bicycles, dishes, shoes, and TV sets to the very top tier who benefited from all the cash being slushed into paper assets via Central Bank Easing. There’s only so many yachts a fellow can own. Meanwhile those of use being displaced by a flood of H1b Visa folks, factories moved to China and Mexico, and working only 1/2 time due to Obummercare are not able to buy all the stuff we would love to buy, if we only had a job. Ditto the “Nini” folks in Spain and across Greece and…

      The 1977 NYC blackout showed a poor economy and a riled up minority caused massive damage, fires and injures unlike the previous NYC blackout that was treated as a ‘fun event’ with little looting or damage.

      On top of that Obama has made the world much more likely to end up in WWIII.

      What an incredible mess the S.O.B. has left this country in.

        Gail, did you think about these polls From Gallup-
        Americans continue to name the government (18%) as the most important U.S. problem, a distinction it has had for the past four months. Americans’ mentions of the economy as the top problem (11%) dropped this month, leaving it tied with jobs (10%) for second place.
        Though issues such as terrorism, healthcare, race relations and immigration have emerged among the top problems in recent polls, government, the economy and unemployment have been the dominant problems listed by Americans for more than a year.

        Click to access MIP_Satisfaction_150311%20%20.pdf

        Economy in general * 11
        Unemployment/Jobs * 10
        Federal budget deficit/Federal debt * 5
        Dissatisfaction with government/Congress/politicians
        Poor leadership/Corruption/Abuse of power * 18
        Immigration/Illegal aliens * 7
        Poor healthcare/hospitals; High cost of healthcare * 7
        Terrorism * 6
        Education/Poor education/Access to education * 6
        Ethics/moral/religious/family decline; Dishonesty * 5
        National security * 4
        Poverty/ Hunger/Homelessness * 4
        Situation in Iraq/ISIS * 4
        Foreign policy/Foreign aid/Focus overseas * 4
        Race relations/Racism * 4

        Here is Gallup’s list of problems. How many of the above do you consider to be the top problem and how many do you consider it is the governments handling that is the real problem. By my count Government or their handling or their meddling hits closer to 96% not 18%

        3. In general, are you satisfied or dissatisfied with the way things are going in the United States at this time?

        Date———– 2009 May 7-9
        Satisfied — 35%
        Dissatisfied — 62%
        Unsure – 3%

        And this is the record lowest O-bama has been able to achieve for Dissatisfied on the direction of the country. all the rest were higher When every month of your Residency you have more than 62% of folks telling you are going the wrong way, it is a problem with leadership.

          Blogger Exposes Gallup Poll Bias Tailor-Made for MSM

          And you can see a bit of that bias peaking out just in the numbers you posted.

          I like Rasmussen because they are up front with what questions they ask and the questions are not twisted to give numbers that can then be fed to the media.

          The Blair-Rockefeller poll is a real classic when it comes to designing a poll to give you numbers you can then feed the MSM to smear an opponent with. In this case it really worked. (At one point Rasmussen showed voters split 1/3, 1/3 and 1/3 with the Tea party right up there with the DemiRats and ReBooblicans. Not surprising given Americans are still saying they really want a viable third party.)

          asks most of the questions starting with:
          “Do you think it is the responsibility of the federal government to…”
          And on the basis of wanting small government they then declare the Tea party as Racist.
          Another question:
          “Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: Our society should do whatever is necessary to make sure that everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed.” Give me a break. It is not my job or the government’s or society’s to wipe everyone else’s arse. As a ‘minority’ I hate the Progressives telling me I am too much of a wimp to succeed on my own without a helping hand from Big Brother. It is down right insulting!

          This is the poll:

          “I like Rasmussen because they are up front with what questions they ask and the questions are not twisted to give numbers that can then be fed to the media.”

          You say that as if they’re two different things. They’re up front with the questions BECAUSE the questions aren’t twisted to give the numbers they want. Or perhaps the other way around. But you’ll never see one without the other. If schools were really about learning, they’d make sure everyone knew that an answer is meaningless without the question that was asked.
          I think “42” sums it up pretty well.

    Obama can go on about gun control all he wants. Nobody but his rich liberal sycophants and academics and some of their students take him seriously on that issue. Not even most blacks align with him on it. The rest of us live in the real world except the politicians and even most of them have figured out that nationally gun control is a losing issue.

    Even as he rails the DC government has lost a big battle concerning their restrictions on gun ownership.
    D.C. gun registration law ruled partly unconstitutional

    • Gail Combs says:

      GOOD NEWS! Thanks RAH.

    • Robertv says:

      “At the same time, the court upheld other requirements, including that gun owners be fingerprinted and photographed.”

      They did 2 steps forward and 1 step back. They gained 1 and liberty lost 1. Step by step bit by bit. So where is the good news ?

    • rah says:

      Colorado there is plenty of that to wallow in elsewhere even in the realm of defending the 2nd amendment. But this DC case was a win anyway one cuts it as have been the majority of cases involving the extraconstitutional gun laws in that place since 2008 when the SCOTUS found the Washington DC ban on handguns unconstitutional.

      Legal battles on such issues when it involves an entrenched City Hall with a bottomless pocketbook for legal battles are usually gradual with multiple cases that nibble away at the central issue. It all moves at the rate of molasses over sandpaper. But the point is, it has been moving in the right direction in DC since 2008.

      • Yes, and everyone should hear President Reagan’s Christmas pony parable.

        Not much can be done about that. People have different temperaments. One of the reviewers of Mark Steyn’s America Alone quipped:

        “The most fun I’ve had being depressed”

  3. Rosco says:

    Bad timing – just as Obama was citing Australia’s gun laws as a model a fifteen year old Muslim teenager murders a Chinese accountant in the street outside the police station where he worked.

    The 15 year old is blasted to death in response and the mosque he frequented is raided.

    Earlier this year another fanatic on bail for serious violent charges obtains guns and holds hostages in a Cafe in Sydney resulting in 3 deaths.

    Let’s be honest – gun laws only inhibit the honest citizens of any country – criminals have a habit of disobeying the law or don’t people like Obama recognize this ?

    • Andy DC says:

      Anytime the Government tries to ban anything that is in demand, it simply creates a black market run by mobsters of various stripes. You can pass all the anti-gun laws you want and it will never prevent criminals who want them from getting them.

      “gun laws only inhibit the honest citizens of any country – criminals have a habit of disobeying the law”
      Yes, exactly! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrBPoX7yMKo

    • … criminals have a habit of disobeying the law …

      Not quite true. Soviet scientists made great progress in this realm in the years 1917-1987. After some interim setbacks*) within the “New Soviet Man” project they came in the end very close to the creation of a new social class, the law-abiding criminal. Only the untimely collapse of the Soviet Union and the shutdown of her correctional and re-educational facilities thwarted the successful conclusion of the development. There is no reason why the Obama administration could not pick up the dropped Soviet baton and finish the race.


      The Soviet Model of Soviet Deviance

      Francis T Cullen, Jr.
      Western Illinois University
      John B. Cullen
      University of Nebraska

      Literature in both the East (Karpets and Kudryavtsev, 1966) and West (Bronfenbrenner, 1970) underscores the capacity of Soviet “character education” agencies to successfully socialize Russian youth into the morally sound “New Soviet Man”. However, despite this success, theorists in the USSR display a deep concern over the impotence of their system to socialize everyone “properly”. For within the Soviet Union there still exist “persons who violate the rules of the socialist community and who commit crimes” (Karpets and Kudryavtsev, 1966:9).

    • i. Lou Minotti says:

      That would never work.

    • rah says:

      You of course know that in the mind of the gun grabbers murder with a firearm is far worse than murder using any other inanimate object. It’s almost as bad as any justified killing by a police officer if the perp has black skin.

    • willys36 says:

      You have it all wrong. Legalize murder (like the legal infanticide we now have) and crime rate statistics improve immediately.

      • Gail Combs says:

        Or at least make gun ownership mandatory!

        KENNESAW, Ga – Several Kennesaw officials attribute a drop in crime in the city over the past two decades to a law that requires residents to have a gun in the house.

        In 1982, the Kennesaw City Council unanimously passed a law requiring heads of households to own at least one firearm with ammunition.

        The ordinance states the gun law is needed to “protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants.”

        Then-councilman J.O. Stephenson said after the ordinance was passed, everyone “went crazy.”

        “People all over the country said there would be shootings in the street and violence in homes,” he said. “Of course, that wasn’t the case.”

        In fact, according to Stephenson, it caused the crime rate in the city to plunge.

        Kennesaw Historical Society president Robert Jones said following the law’s passage, the crime rate dropped 89 percent in the city, compared to the modest 10 percent drop statewide.

        “It did drop after it was passed,” he said. “After it initially dropped, it has stayed at the same low level for the past 16 years.”

        Of course this would never do. The Progressives do not want such an example out there.

        Nelson, Ga. followed suit with the Family Protection Ordinance but was challenged by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. According to Huff and Puff the town lost the fight.

  5. rah says:

    A fundamental fact that most Americans don’t seem to understand. The Bill of Rights does not grant rights, it was written to preserve preexisting rights. The 9th amendment makes that very clear.
    “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

    IOW we have rights far beyond what is expressed in the Bill of Rights or Constitution and the Federal Government has no Constitutional power to deny us those rights.

    In the realm of the use of a firearm or any other weapon at hand this means that we have a fundamental right to protect the lives of ourselves, our family and our fellow man. This is what the founders called a “fundamental law of nature” and explicitly intended could not be “abrogated by any regulation of municipal law.”

    • Progressive Americans understand democracy and they want President Obama to repeal the Bill of Rights.

      • Gail Combs says:

        Lefties want the old system of Aristocracy where the king grants PRIVILEGES to his favorites and all others are slaves of the king. As I keep on saying Marx was a propagandist for the Aristocracy and Rothschild Central Banksters who were determined to rid society of the middle class ( bourgeoisie) that threatened their privileged status.

        “The bourgeoisie, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. It has pitilessly torn asunder the motley feudal ties that bound man to his ‘natural superiors,’ and has left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, callous ‘cash payment.’ It has drowned the most heavenly ecstasies of religious fervor, of chivalrous enthusiasm, of philistine sentimentalism, in the icy water of egotistical calculation. It has resolved personal worth into exchange value, and in place of the numberless indefeasible chartered freedoms, has set up that single, unconscionable freedom—Free Trade. In one word, for exploitation, veiled by religious and political illusions, it has substituted naked, shameless, direct, brutal exploitation.

        The bourgeoisie has stripped of its halo every occupation hitherto honored and looked up to with reverent awe. It has converted the physician, the lawyer, the priest, the poet, the man of science, into its paid wage laborers.** ― Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto

        ** That is the attractiveness for ” the man of science”

      • Gail Combs says:

        KARL MARX
        The mentor and role model of Karl Marx was Ludwig von Westphalen. Ludwig, was the youngest son of Baron Christian Philip Heinrich von Westphalen the de facto “chief of staff” to Duke Ferdinand during the Seven Years’ War. His mother was the descendant of many Scottish and European noble families. So Ludwig (later Baron) was well connected to the European aristocracy.

        The French Revolution lasted from 1789 until 1799. The Holy Roman Empire, after existing for a thousand years, was dissolved on 6 August 1806, after its defeat by Napoleon at the Battle of Austerlitz. The Napoleonic Wars involving most of Europe was from 1803 to 1815. Defeating Napoleon, the European aristocracy managed to hold onto their way of life by the skin of their teeth.

        A year later in 1816 Ludwig von Westphalen was transferred to Trier where he met and befriended Heinrich Marx, the father of Karl Marx. Now why would a well connected nobleman befriend a Jewish businessman/lawyer?

        Perhaps because Heinrich Marx, wife’s first cousin married Nathan Rothschild, founder of the British branch of the Rothschild banking dynasty?

        Nathan Rothschild funded the Napoleonic Wars.

        …Nathan knew Napoleon had lost the Battle of Waterloo before the English monarchy. With this information in hand, Nathan spread the rumor that Napoleon had won and that everyone on the English Stock Market should start selling their useless English money. Rothchilds’ agents were then able to purchase nearly the entire English Stock Market at incredibly low prices, thus controlling the entire English market before everyone found out that England, in reality, had beaten Napoleon. As of 2015, the English government is still paying back money owed to the Rothschild family from this Napoleonic fraud.http://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/033015/what-was-nathan-rothschilds-interest-funding-napoleonic-wars.asp

        Nathan Rothschild was executor of Cecil Rhodes will around fifty years later.

        It was Ludwig who first introduced Marx to socialist teachings.. Marx’s dissertation was dedicated to Ludwig. Remember Ludwig would have been familiar with the Classics and Plutarch’s account of Ancient Spartan Communism.

        I see nothing that makes me think that Marx actually cared for the ‘Masses’ instead I see a giant scam to destroy the middle class and bring the masses back under the control of the elite.

        Marx and Engel saw the masses as scum.

        Marx an Engels, 14. August 1879

        “Als wir heut morgen im Hôtel de l’Europe anfrugen, traf es sich glücklich so, daß grade 60 Franzosen sich auf die Abreise vorbereiteten, während andrerseits die mit frischem Menschenkehricht belasteten steamers noch nicht eingetroffen.”

        “When this morning we inquired at the Hotel de l’Europe, fortunately it so happened that 60 Frenchmen were preparing to leave, while on the other hand the steam ships loaded with fresh human debris had not arrived yet.”

      I once went out with a lawyer. I forget how we got there, but I ended up making the same point you just made. She literally laughed at the idea. At least according to her, in the current legal system, the ninth amendment has no meaning what so ever. It’s a non-binding and impossibly vague statement of intent, with no purpose beyond soliciting votes for the constitution, and only an idiot could read it as anything else.

      I can’t say I’ve ever asked a judge about it, but her description certainly seems to reflect the courts’ interpretations of the ninth amendment.

      And no, I never saw her again.

      • rah says:

        I guess then she would judge me to be “an idiot” because I read it as the law of the land.

        Further, I happen to know some history and so know the Federalists were so sure that those many individual rights existed that they didn’t even think that a Bill of Rights was necessary to enumerate ANY OF THEM.

        The ONLY ones that needed sold on the Bill of Rights were the Federalists.

      • rah says:

        Oh BTW you could have embarrassed her and pointed out that the Constitution was ratified BEFORE there was a Bill of Rights. After all they are Amendments!

        • Ted says:

          Well that just proves you ARE an idiot. (as, apparently, am I) I already said she was a lawyer. You can’t embarrass someone who’s entirely without shame.

          Sadly, the bill of rights has led to exactly what the antifederalists said it would. With certain rare, politically motivated exceptions, (abortion, homosexual marriage, etc) the enumerated rights are now seen as an exhaustive list. And even those are presumed to be overly broad, and in need of strict constraints.

          I think the bill of rights starts off great, but then delves into needless repetition. I would have stopped after the first 5 words.
          “Congress shall make no law.”

          In truth, there’s been no limit on federal power since Marbury v. Madison. The government granted itself the power to determine the nature and scope of it’s own authority. The war should have started that day.

      Perhaps you didn’t know that the Nobel Committee for the Peace Prize has expressed regret for awarding the prize to “the one”.

    America has roughly one privately owned firearm for every man, woman, and child. That’s about 300,000,000 firearms, spread among about 50,000,000 households. About a third of those are handguns, which take up less space than a book, and can be hidden almost anywhere. As an unknowable, but surely significant, number of those firearms have no paper trail leading to the current owner, it’s impossible to say exactly how many there are, or where they are.

    Estimates vary more widely on illegal aliens, but their numbers are generally given as between 11,000,000 and 20,000,000. Very few of those people could be hidden in the space needed to hide even the biggest firearm, and not a single one could be hidden within a book sized object. Again, it’s impossible to know the exact number or locations of all illegals.

    In both cases, all previous attempts to eradicate either group, without exception, have resulted in massive efforts to hide the objects, or otherwise obstruct said eradication.

    The apparent belief of many liberals is that all privately owned firearms can be found, and eliminated, but finding and eliminating illegals is so hopelessly impossible that we’d be fools to try. Looking at the same data, I come to different conclusions.

    In my opinion, the only reason we haven’t yet seen large scale confiscation is that it’s one of the few government actions guaranteed to cause a revolution. Something in the American psyche needs to change before confiscation would be allowed. I don’t know what that change would be, or how to bring it about. Thankfully, it doesn’t appear that the government knows, either.

    Hey Tony.

    Have you seen that your favorite president is now looking at Colorado as a place to open a new GITMO?
