Skip to comments.Obama: “Executive Action” On Gun Control “Within My Authority As President”
Posted on 01/15/2013 4:29:08 AM PST by yoe
Barack finished up the final press conference of his first term. During it he was questioned a number of times about his plans for gun control as Vice President Joe Biden prepares to deliver his recommendations tomorrow. What was most amazing was when he referenced his executive power and stated, How we are gathering data on guns that fall into the hands of criminals, how we track that. He also boldly declared that executive action could be taken and that some steps that we can take that dont require legislation and that are within my authority as president.
First, before getting into this, did anyone else do a double take and shout at your television set or computer monitor about his administrations lack of tracking about 2,500 weapons into the hands of criminals in Mexico under the watchful eye of the Obama Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives(BATFE)? In addition, his executive authority, as far as executive orders, ( do not allow him to go beyond dealing with those under his authority and those orders he gives may not be unlawful or against the Constitution.) Yeah, I thought most of you were with me on that one.

Obama’s executive action may lead to direct action from operators and patriots. Paging hundreds of Henry Bowmans!
“... shall not be infringed.” Says differently obozo. Going to be expensive for you to realize just how wrong you are.
Doesn’t this jackoff know the meaning of “infringe” and the not doing of it?
No more “Constitution” thingy or “Bill of Rights”, then?
can you spell W, A, R?
Utilizing the second amendment for its intended purpose is within our authority as citizens of the United States!
You ain’t touching my guns, you commie punk!
Officially within his authority as president? Buahahahahahaha!
Obama wants a war.
He will have one.
This is the measure of Obama the Usurper. He thinks he can regulate 2nd amendment rights, and all rights in the Bill of Rights? Our God given rights are at Obama’s whim? He will bite the bullet.
Impeachment will commence in the house.
Obama and Holder give weapons to terrorists in Fast and
Furious and around the world (MANPADS) from Libya to Syria
But they promise, when the fight comes to the Homeland,
with terrorists bearing weapons given them by Holder,
all the American people shall NOT be able to protect themselves.
The word for the month is ORGANIZE!!!!
..the substitute professor don’t know jack....once again speaking to hear himself speak
Let the games begin!
I don’t see how yall think ANYBODY is going to do ANYTHING about this. Where are the leaders who will? *crickets* God help us!
I am in fear that much like the Germany citizen “accepted” Hitler and the Gestapo - their is enough US Citizens or “others” that will “accept” what ever form of control Obama issues in what ever manner he decides to issue it...be it immediate, short or long term...
With that, I do put my trust in the US Citizen that does bear arms will do with responsibility - and care not what type of arm(s) that Citizen possesses.
If they want to save lives - then shut down Planned Parenthood! Those are no more than locally placed extermination camps!
“I dont see how yall think ANYBODY is going to do ANYTHING about this. Where are the leaders who will? *crickets* God help us!”
Your rights come from God, not elected officials.
YOU want to keep them, then YOU do something.
Oh, some of us are here all right. However, without millions made from business or marrying the right person, how are we supposed to even run for office? I guarantee you I can get up and say what needs to be said eloquently and handle the opposition and the media.
It is not a one-person act either. One has to garner support of like minds and that's where the problem comes in. It is not so much of a lack of leadership as it is a lack of a moral foundation to create proper leaders. Without a large group of Godly people, you're not going to get leadership worth a flip. So, where's the support for getting it done? Crickets chirping....
>>I am in fear that much like the
>>Germany citizen accepted Hitler and the Gestapo
Obama’s disregard for the U.S. Constitution meets the definition of war against the United States.
Obama needs to be tried for treason and sentenced appropriately.
Weare looking for a common sense answer to come from the guy who said we don’t have a spending problem in the Government.A common sense answer to come from the guy who allowed Fast & Furious and sent jets and tanks to Egypt and arms to Syria to help the Muslim Brtherhood.A common sense answer from the guy who flew from Hawaii and back twice for his vacation while we in America are squeezing a nickle until the buffalo sh**s.
A common sense answer he gave Joe Biden, the most stupid white man on the face of the earth to come up with.
Assuming that he can enforce his diktats, statistics indicate that overall crime would them be reduced by over 50%.
Sounds awful, but if rights are no longer protected, then you might as well go for effective.
So let it be written... so let it be done.
Well, if you mean the Members of Congress, you are correct. They have not respected, nor operated within, the limits of the Constitution for decades. They are (in this respect) WORSE than Obama, because their consistent treason and lies created the nexus from which an Obama could emerge. Obama is right, in at least this respect - THEY created the financial disaster we face, all by themselves, Republicans and Democrats alike, and in a just world they would fix it, or be hanged.
Where are the leaders who will?
All around you. Their names are not yet known, except, possibly, for a few who became known to some in Iraq, or Afghanistan.
You could collect and destroy every gun on earth... there is still going to be some half-wit who will drive his car 80 Miles an hour into a crowd of school children.
Bank on it.
Me think he wants to turn the US into Syria and he is playing the part of Assad.
It would be perfectly within his authority as President to direct that the DOJ actually prosecute the felon-in-possession cases that are referred to it, as it hasn’t, since he took office.
Operation Exile worked. It has effectively ended, since the end of the Bush administration. It would be fully within Obama’s authority to order it started, again.
But, then, it would result in actual violent criminals who use illegal firearms going to prison. And that doesn’t further his true goals.
SOOOO, Comrade zero wants to join the list of pseudointellectuals who are destined to repeat catastrophic errors with predictable results. Typical criminal dimocrat scum.
Out... just like almost everywhere else...
“Respect mah authoritah!”
Mister “I’m in control, so why are you still standing in my way?”, may not get the response he’s hoping for on the many fronts he’s engaged.
Excellent site - and book...
“...call attention to what Hitlerism really stood for, abortion, euthanasia, hatred of Jews, and, very emphatically, homosexuality.”
Says it all right there...I read a book when I was in college and as a Police major - we were studying deviate behaviors - I remember this book was written by a psychologist I think - but it detailed the extremes found in Hitler, Himmler, and the rest of his nut case squad...the entire 3rd Reich was no more than a bunch of perverts that seized power by what was then the official elected system - then did away with it on the premise of making Germany a regional - then world power...
The US has several parallels at the moment!
>>The US has several parallels at the moment!
Yep. Same Ol’, but the McSheeple are still in Eyes Wide Shut mode.
“within my authority as president.”
It is within my Heavenly Fathers authority ... “not to abide”.
I might have to render unto Caesar, but I don’t have to bow!!!
Say who? Holder?
The Second Amendment to The Constitution as ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
der 0berFuhrer emperor Hussein 0bama may make pronouncement and "Executive Orders", but enforcing them is a whole 'nother matter!
Eight deuce on the loose in America!

Boehner and McConnell are gonna fold. The GOPe will have ended the party by 2016 -- perhaps by 2014 when the Dems retake the House. We'll be treated to an all-network special of Queen Nancy parading through Congress with her giant gavel, grinning and laughing like The Joker from Batman. Boehner will gratefully retire to the back bench, reelected again by the same gelatine "Republicans."
In 2011 we said, "You know, with 24/7 news and a web that would carry our message throughout the nation to every household, we will crush the Rancid Media with the truth. Guess what? They crushed us through just plain better tactics (yes, including lies, slander and violence, but a win is a win) and an army of welfare Eloi who had all day to demonstrate for Obama while on EBT cards, ADC, Section 8, free daycare, and no annoying husbands or jobs to confuse them.
Today Obama said that he's going to do exactly what he wants to do for the next four years and anyone who doesn't like can go screw themselves. Because Repub leadership is like the feckless Marine lieutenant in "Aliens," he can just watch the unfolding disaster with incomprehension and wet trousers. There is no resistance without heroics, if that means sacrificing your good life and cocktail parties and low-wage illegal immigrant workers (sorry; it's true) and glamorous life in DC and All the Right Friends and a cushy lobbyist job when you've decided to retire from your lifetime seat in government... The Founders risked it all -- in their words, their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor.
It is execrable that the Left now has unlimited government money to hold rallies, terrorize children, beat-up opponents, and rent thousands of buses for protests, but we let that happen. We have jobs so we can pay for the 19,000 imaginary welfare recipients in Massachusetts that don't exist but get their checks anyway. And it won't be getting better any time soon.
Collapse? More like watching the tide slowly destroy a sand castle.
Yes, this administration real good at tracking guns/s
In the end, a population elects the government it deserves ......
It’s official; I don’t know anything.
I thought for sure that given such a clear choice, Americans would vote for love of country over revenge.
I was wrong.
I thought, that just as every presidential election in my lifetime, the bad economy would be hung around the incumbent’s neck, sinking him.
I was wrong.
I thought that even those few Americans who were fortunate enough to still be fully employed (not counting those leeching off the public system) would be cognizant of how much pain their neighbors were in and elect someone who would at least try to make improvements.
I was wrong.
I thought that now that FINALLY some of the disturbing truths about our first black president had come to light, voters would reject a man so dangerously at odds with the American experience.
I was wrong.
I thought the 2010 elections and the Tea Party meant something.
I thought the enthusiasm on display at Romney/Ryan events, contrasted with the lack of same at Obama/Biden events meant something.
I thought Americans would never sell their liberty for the sake of trinkets like cell phones or even big shiny lies like ‘free health care’.
I was wrong.
Never in a million years would I have supposed that America would support a president who left his (our) people to die at the hands of our enemies overseas without lifting a hand to help, then lie about what he watched in real time for over two weeks, then lie about the lie for another month.
I was wrong.
I thought Americans could tell a hawk from a handsaw.
I was wrong.
We were offered the clearest choice we’ve had since 1980, where we had malaise and a misery index on one hand and a shining city on a hill on the other. Back then, we chose the city on the hill. This time the choice was between a man who says 7.9% unemployment and $4.00 gas is the new normal and a guy whose entire career has been about fixing broken entities.
We chose to stay broken. And Broke.
Maybe I’m wrong about the ramifications of this choice. Maybe windmills will actually turn out to be a viable energy source. Maybe America diminished will be loved overseas. Maybe a nuclear Iran won’t be a threat. Maybe Israel is over reacting. Maybe western civilization was always over rated. Maybe life under sharia is fun. Maybe when the rest of the world realizes that we have no intention of ever paying back that $16,000,000,000,000.00 (and counting) that we’ve borrowed from them, they won’t devalue the dollar, causing hyper inflation here at home. Maybe China will just keep on giving us money and not demand our hearts, souls, national monuments and marriageable daughters as payment.
I’ve watched my candidate lose elections before but I’ve never felt the way I did when this one was called for Obama.
It wasn’t bitterness or sadness or even disappointment. It took me a while to figure out what it was. Then it hit me; it was horror.
Pure, unadulterated horror.
Not because of Obama, but because of what it says about us, the American people, that we chose this.
It shouldn’t have even been close. Faced with the choice between taking charge of our destiny and tackling our financial problems, we opted to get high and have sex. We re elected a guy who doesn’t understand that a growing economy that creates more tax payers will bring in more revenue than higher taxes. A Commander in Chief who doesn’t know our military still uses bayonets. A man who wants to control the economy without even knowing the difference between bankruptcy and liquidation. It was one thing to elect an unknown quantity, buying his line of ‘Hope and Change’. It’s something else to deliberately choose his failed policies over someone who has actually achieved success in life. I never dreamed America would do that.
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, Hello Idiocracy!
Goodbye, energy independence.
Goodbye, religious liberty.
Goodbye, liberty and justice for all.
Goodbye, America dream.
It profits a man nothing to lose his soul for the whole world but we threw ours away for cell phones and birth control pills.
In the twentieth century (the American Century), we stepped up to the plate three times and saved the rest of the world from fascism, nazism and communism. We were the cavalry, always riding to the rescue.
Now, we’ve gotten rid of our horses, spent all our money on windmills, alienated our allies, bowed to our enemies, cut ourselves off from our own natural resources, thrown away our children’s birthright and spent their inheritance. Kill the unborn!
And we did it on purpose.
When the wolf is at the door (and he’s coming, yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’) we’re going to find out that there is no one out there to come to our rescue.
On the bright side, maybe it’ll all turn out great. After all, I don’t know anything.
Oh, by the way, “Happy New Year”.
Hundreds of thousands.
