WORDS MEAN THINGS – GUN CONTROL

According to rt.com, President Obama is expected to take executive action on gun control, possibly as soon as next week, according to gun control advocates.

The specifics of Obama’s executive order are still unknown as the plan is still not finished, CNN reported. However, gun control advocates are prepared for the actions to be unveiled sometime next week. The plan is said to be a unilateral action that will close background check loopholes.

Federal law currently requires that all licensed gun dealers conduct background checks. However, this rule does not apply to firearms sold online or at gun shows.

The president has frequently expressed frustration over the mass shootings occurring in the United States and has attempted to pass legislation restricting the sale of guns. However, his attempt to require universal background checks was rebuffed by Congress in early 2013, following the Sandy Hood Elementary School massacre that left 26 people dead, 20 of whom were children.

Following the October 1 mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, Obama said, “We are the only advanced country on earth that sees these kinds of mass shootings every few months. Obama is expected to announce the plans prior to his January 12 State of the Union Address.

While the National Rifle Association, which has fought hard against Obama’s gun control efforts, currently has no comment, NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker was previously quoted as saying, “The fact is, the President’s gun control agenda will only make it harder for law abiding citizens to exercise their right to self-defense.

According to other sources, the current president has admitted that his additional gun control measures would not have prevented the mass shootings that occurred at Sandy Hook and San Bernadino. If his recommended measures are not going to prevent the kind of gun violence we have witnessed in the last few years, then why are we putting in these measures?

I think we conservatives know the answer to that. It’s not about diminishing incidents of gun violence, it’s about gradually disarming the American people. Once that is done, along with universal health care, the left is in total control of this country and can do anything it desires, including the setting up of a dictatorship, signaling the end of the United States of America.

Whenever additional gun control measures are proposed, conservatives usually call the additional measure, “gun confiscation.” Over the last couple of months, I have notice more and more liberals responding, indicating that it is not their desire to take our guns away from us. The simply want to take more preventative measures to keep guns out of the wrong hands.

While I certainly am in the opinion that additional gun control measures will not minimize acts of gun violence and will make it harder for law-abiding citizens to exercise their second amendment rights, I do believe that grass roots liberals probably don’t want to completely disarm the American people. Furthermore, some liberals seem to be very defensive about this, claiming conservatives are exaggerating their motives. So, are we conservatives embellishing when we say that the lift wants to disarm the American people? I would say yes, we are.

HOWEVER, liberals have been known to call tax cuts where everyone who pays income tax gets a cut, “tax cuts for the rich.” I’ve heard that phrase from liberals so many times that I’m sick of it. Because there are so many American that do not pay income tax, liberals aren’t satisfied with a tax cut that everyone who pays taxes receives. Instead, they want some kind of entitlement program where those who don’t pay income tax get something for nothing.

Also, liberals love to accuse conservatives of racism if they don’t agree with the policies of the current president. I even read an article sometime back where liberals were saying that conservatives were proponents of Bill Clinton’s policies in the nineties, but were against those same policies when proposed by the Obama administration. Now that’s a flat-out lie. Conservatives fought Clinton’s policies with the same vigor they have fought Obama’s policies. To accuse anyone who doesn’t agree politically with the Obama administration of racism is labelling and stereotyping, and bigotry. Three things of which liberals accuse conservatives.

Thirdly, liberals often accuse conservatives of hating the poor because conservatives are mostly against certain entitlement programs that purport to help the poor. We already know that the poverty rate has increased dramatically since President Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” initiative in the 1960s. Only a small portion of each tax dollar paid by the American people actually gets to the cause. I don’t know of any conservative that “hates the poor.” In fact, most conservatives I know give willingly to help the poor. Churches and civic organizations spend time and money to help those less fortunate. Many individuals spend a portion of the Christmas gift budget to buy presents for those who otherwise wouldn’t receive any Christmas presents. There are food drives, clothing drives, private shelters, auxiliaries, etc. designed to assist those less fortunate. Many people give their time and talents on a regular basis to assist the poor. Do those who are less fortunate not benefit more when they receive assistance from someone’s hand to theirs?

You will never convince liberals that a government entitlement program helps no one and generally propagates poverty rather than diminishes it. But could we possibly get liberals to stop saying that conservatives hate the poor?

In other words, I would be willing to stop saying that liberal gun control initiatives are confiscation of guns if liberals would quite hollering “tax cuts for the rich,” quit accusing those who don’t agree with Obama’s policies of racism, and quit accusing conservatives of hating the poor.

AMERICANS ARE NERVOUS ABOUT TERRORISM, MR. PRESIDENT!

According to buzzpo.com, the current president of the United States didn’t realize how nervous Americans are about terrorism? He thinks he didn’t realize this because he doesn’t watch enough cable TV.

This president has said and done some unbelievably dumb and evil things during his reign of terror, but this “pretty much takes the cake.” In his meeting with the columnists, Mr. Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino.

If a Republican president had done some of the things that this president has done, the republican president would no longer be in office. He or she would have either been impeached or not re-elected for a second term.

When someone runs for president, he or she should know something about the history of the United States. By means of being a state senator and then a United States senator, he should have been fully knowledgeable about the many terrorist attacks carried out against the United States and other democracies on the planet. And he should have known by virtue of the briefings he supposedly gets every day and the information that his advisors should be giving him. To not know is inexcusable.

The current president apparently acknowledged privately that he “flubbed the dub” in his initial response to the Paris attacks. As a result, he is hoping to add more theater to his counterterrorism response, whatever that means. The actual strategy isn’t changing much. But with White4 House aides saying they feel like Americans are more worried about the immediate threat of terrorism in the wake of Paris and San Bernadino than any point since 9/11, there will be more events like Obama’s visits to the Pentagon and the National Counterterrorism Center.

Bottom line, we’re not change our strategy in the fight against ISIS and other terrorist groups. Instead, the president is going to attempt to publicly show the American people that he cares about terrorism, even though he won’t say the words, “Islamic Terrorism.” This is symbolism over substance, my friends.

This is more condescending to the American people than the president and other members of his administration telling us that by joining other countries to combat climate change, ISIS will see our sincerity and quit doing bad things.

This president has insulted and derided the American people so many times, and I consider the above his biggest insult.

This president doesn’t care about the United States of America. His purpose in life and as POTUS is to destroy the United States of America. He doesn’t care about the American people except to the extent that his followers will assist him in taking down the USA. That includes that main stream media. Sure, he took an oath twice to protect and defend the constitution of the United States of America. Furthermore, the number one job of the President of the United States is to protect the American people. Oaths he has taken plus the job responsibilities that come with the office of the president mean nothing to him. He’s a liar and he’s evil.

A couple of days ago, a FB friend of mine who is an Obama zombie (yes, I have friends who are Obama supporters), posted one of those little “photo things” that read as follows: “Share if you’re truly grateful for the Obamas, who have led our country with class, grace, dignity, and perseverance in the face of unprecedented obstruction.”

The Obamas are anything but classy, graceful, and dignified. Every president to date has had to fight to get his programs implemented. This is the way the United States government was set up to operate. His healthcare plan was passed using every legislative trick in the book, including using threats and intimidation against those legislators of his own party who were hesitant to support such an evil piece of legislation that would not only ruin the best health care system on the planet, but would affect this nation negatively in areas other than health care itself.

After losing his majority in Congress and eventually the Senate, his power was not subdued. He simply indicated that he had a phone and a pen and he intended to go around Congress to accomplish what he wanted to accomplish, the legislative branch and the American people be damned.

When Barak Obama was running for president for the first time, I was having dinner with a friend and expressed that there was not a single issue in which I agreed with him. The only positive thing about him was that he might be fun to party with. Now, I don’t even have a desire to party with him. I don’t want to be anywhere near him. I don’t want him in my state ever again.

LIBERALS GETTING BOLD

With the Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris last month and in San Bernadino, California last week, the current administration seems to be taking a hit from the electorate for their actions in the wake of these travesties. Furthermore, it is looking more and more that Republicans may take the presidency in 2016. If this happens and the Republicans maintain control of the Senate and the House of Representatives, liberals are going to find themselves without representation except for maybe in the media.

Because of the above it appears that liberals are getting even bolder when it comes to their goals of fundamentally transforming the United States of America into a socialist/totalitarian state which include removing God and Christianity completely out of our society, repealing the second amendment and outlaw the American citizens’ right to bear arms, forcing climate change regulations down our throats, continued demonization of local law enforcement, etc.

The December 3 edition of The New York Daily News featured on its front page, the bold heading, “God Isn’t Fixing This.” You’re average grass roots/on the street liberal will tell you that freedom to practice your religion still exists, but we shouldn’t keep religion out of public places because someone might be offended. We all know that this means that we should keep Christianity and Judaism out of the public place. Islam appears to be welcome.

In the December 3 New York Daily News posts tweets from the following Republicans, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Lindsey Graham, and Paul Ryan. Their tweets indicated that thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the San Bernardino, California shooting. The bottom of the front page reads as follows: “As large batch of innocent Americans are left lying in pools of blood, cowards who could truly end gun scourge continue to hide behind meaningless platitudes.

This is a direct assault on Christianity by the media and it should scare every one of us to death. What’s coming next? In fact, I don’t ever recall such a direct assault on Christianity as this one by a public entity. Will this bring an onslaught of similar attacks on Christianity?

On Friday, December 4, Salon.com published an article entitled, “The Second Amendment must go: We ban law darts. It’s time to ban guns.” While we all know that it is a goal of the left to disarm American citizens and abolish the second amendment, liberals generally don’t say that. Instead, they say we need more gun control laws and gun free zones. Again, this is a bold new move by liberals to tell us what they really think and have outlined for America’s future.

According to 100percentfedup.com, an article entitled, “Holy Freedom of Speech? Obama’s Attorney General Promises to Punish Americans for Anti-Muslim Speech”, indicates that Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, pledged to a group of Muslim activists that she would take aggressive action against anyone who used “anti-Muslim rhetoric” that “edges toward violence.” Assuring the pro-Muslim group that “we stand with you,” Lynch said she would use her Justice Department to protect Muslims from “violence” and discrimination. The author of the article asks what exactly is speech that “edges toward violence?” What exactly are “actions predicated on violent talk?” We all know that the answers to these questions is whatever Attorney General Lynch, or anyone in the current administration decides it to mean. Just like racism.

It’s not the purpose of this writing to analyze the above assaults on basic American values, but to illustrate that liberals, thinking they may lose all power in 2016, are scrambling to put their agenda in place while their side still has the bully pulpit.

It will be very interesting to see what follows in the coming months.
