Obama to 'Quickly' Go for Immigration Reform and Gun Control- W.H. pledges action this month.
Weekly Standard ^ | 1/2/13

Posted on 01/02/2013 5:34:09 PM PST by Nachum

President Barack Obama will go for immigration reform and gun control this month, the White House tells the left-leaning Huffington Post. Obama's actions will reportedly be done "quickly." Obama glowing

"An Obama administration official said the president plans to push for immigration reform this January. The official, who spoke about legislative plans only on condition of anonymity, said that coming standoffs over deficit reduction are unlikely to drain momentum from other priorities. The White House plans to push forward quickly, not just on immigration reform but gun control laws as well," reports the Huffington Post.

If the GOP house brings any such bills to the floor, they should be thrown out of the majority. Period. Both bills should be DOA. Only topic should be debt ceiling and associated spending cuts. End of legislation after that.

Osama Obama has no more cards to play.He’s a lame duck.Immigration “reform” should be easy to resist.Just publicize the fact that 66% of California’s prisoners are illegals.Show pictures of the beheading that take place just over the border in places like Juarez.As for gun control make a counter proposal...criminal charges for anyone who knows,or has reason to know,that someone known to them might use their firearms to do harm but fail to keep them from those weapons *and* stiffer controls on those with certain criminal histories and psych histories.

One major problem is that the muslim marxist in the White House will de fund the military which he wants to do.

He will not defund Homeland Security which he wants and is planning on using as our next Gestopo.

If there isn’t one member of Congress who is willing to object to the electoral votes that Obama certifiably got through election fraud (since Hawaii has indirectly certified that Obama has no legally-determined birth facts so there is no way the DNC could lawfully certify him as “qualified”).... then Obama will have all the “flexibility” he wants.

IOW, if Congress doesn’t act now, when the time is right, they are not only impotent but is actually castrating itself for fear of media ridicule.

If that’s what they are made of, we deserve everything we’re gonna get. And there is no doubt we will get it, if they don’t stand now.

We need to be burning their phone lines - not over the fiscal cliff theatrics, not over the speakership theatrics, or over any other theatrics. We need to burn up the phone lines on the only thing that matters right now: making one last stand for the rule of law. A couple threads I’ve posted about this are at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2973577/posts (the latest one) and http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2972710/posts (the first one).

What’ve you been smokin’? He’s got nearly the entire deck to be played. We’re still a federated constitutional republic, aren’t we? There’s a heap of fundamental transformation just waiting for corrective Executive Orders. And have no doubt; Valerie Jarrett has them drafted and ready to go.

If congress doesn’t give him what he exactly wants on immigration and gun grabs, he will executive order it and I’m not kidding.

I love the red laser I recently installed on my Ruger handgun. Put that red spot where I want it on the target and fire and that’s where that bullet goes. I will never give up this pretty 38 special with P, gun and pretty red dot (that’s the female perspective).

“Is a Ruger 38 the caliber? I think I would like to have a laser!”

The company is Ruger. The gun is an LCR 38 (caliber)
Special with P (P is more pack per punch).

A laser is made exactly for the model of the gun. This Ruger is a fairly new model and a company, LaserMax just came out with a reasonable cost red laser for this gun. The cost was about $75 for the laser and that is an absolute bargain compared to the other company that makes them at about $300 and it's not easy to install in the grip area. This one attaches easily toward the front so doesn't require a gun smith to do it. Five minutes and it's on there.

It gives the shooter great confidence to know where that bullet is going and is superior if the shooter is firing in the dark.

Well, if he gives this as much attention as job creation (remember that laser focus) then we’re pretty safe.

That said, if he does break out of his stereotypically lazy pattern he’ll have to have the cooperation of congress. That would necessarily entail republican help. In that event the GOP should prepare to be marginalized to the point of failing to exist as a viable political party. If its any consolation ORomney would have sold gun owners out too. Guess that would have been OK w/ some here b/c he’s ‘our’ despot.

“We got Executive Orders.

Expect it.”

Executive orders have the effect of statutes but are subject to judicial review and can be determined unconstitutional.
IMHO a Bam executive order giving amnesty to criminal alien migrants would result in holy H***.
An EO proclaiming substantive “gun control” would trigger ... let’s say, `civil unrest’, if the SCOTUS did nothing.
So you might be right: Our little tyrant Bam-bam has compared himself to Lincoln more than once.

“Executive orders have the effect of statutes but are subject to judicial review and can be determined unconstitutional.”

Not one of Socialist Autocrat Obama’s Exec. Decrees has been challenged, nor can we expect that any will be.
Neither were those Clinton used to impose his policy preferences without the fuss and bother of legislative debate.
