Biden Vows Obama Will Use Executive Orders
Cowboy Bytes ^ | April 19, 2013

Posted on 04/19/2013 10:37:07 AM PDT by yoe

They can’t pass gun control via Congress so they’re going the dictator route. This is not going to go over well.

On a conference call with “stakeholders,” Biden told gun control advocates that the fight is not over and that eventual action on gun control will come. Press were not invited to the conference call; a participant provided BuzzFeed with access.

“Look I know you’re going to say that I’m just being an optimist and I’m trying to put a good face on this. But you know I’ve been around here a long time and we’ve already done, because of you, some really good things,” Biden said. “Number one, the president is already lining up some additional executive actions he’s going to be taking later this week.”

Do Executive Orders trump the Second Amendment in any way? If so and this angry boy keeps up abusing our Constitution...maybe we should De-fund Air Force I and 2 while De-funding Obamacare.

If true, may Impeachment proceedings begin. This is crossing the line beyond the line past the line already crossed.

Depends on what the courts say.

Legally no. But as anyone in Illinois can tell you, the law doesn’t apply to certain people

With the ball-less Republicans in THIS Congress, the obozomesiter could issue XOs outlawing the entire Constitution itself and they would just bend over and take it.

They have already proven that again and again.

We’ve got violence stalking our streets.
We’ve got entire cities on lock-down.
We’ve got cops going house to house conducting searches.
We’ve got people (like Susan Estrich) saying, “I will give up everything — just keep me safe!”

This country is primed for the illegal seizure of guns. Congress wouldn’t do it, so Obama will stomp on the accelerator and take us all to where he wanted to go in the first place. The media and the Political Elite are not likely to raise a fuss.

I say it’s all about to hit the fan.

In truth, EOs only affect those branches/departments of government directly under the Executive Branch. Think of it as a department head or division chief of a company sending instructions to his underlings.

It is a means to potentially cause mischief...at the same time, it’s nowhere near divine-right-of-kings grade supreme power.

Obama has gotten away with this crap previously because it didn’t have much effect on a lot of Americans. However, if he thinks he can play Caesar by using executive orders (that effectively expire at the end of his term and can be cancelled by the next president) to thwart the constitutional rights of gun owners, he will get a much overdue surprise. Claiming he isn’t ‘outlawing’ guns but putting onerous restrictions on gun owners and making gun ownership unduly expensive and difficult is certainly against the intent of the Second Amendment. Such rubbish must be opposed in courts and on the street. Obama wants to play dictator...let’s see how that works out for him in America.

Of course, I agree.

But we need to see the calculation through the eyes of the Left. If a cop kicks in my door tomorrow, because he wants to seize my guns, and if I open up a can of whup-ass, what will the media say? "Domestic terrorist gunned down by police. More blood on American soil because of extremism."

You can lather rinse and repeat that quite a few times before the sheeple start saying, "Hey, I think Obama may be going too far."

Obama and his handlers know that it is time to strike when the iron is hot, and right now the iron has never been hotter. I'm sure he will ultimately fail in his attempt, but I am equally sure that he will nevertheless make the attempt.

Um, if he really thinks that he can do an end run around the Second Amendment by EO, then
1)It’s a good thing they haven’t started confiscation yet
2)NOW is the time we really need to put the screws to our “representatives”-if they don’t care about the affront to us and to the Constitution, then they should at least care about the affront to themselves

If true, may Impeachment proceedings begin. This is crossing the line beyond the line past the line already crossed.

I fully agree but the reality is that the congressional Republicans won't even come close to impeaching this fraud of a president. Remember Clinton? The evidence against him was conclusive but he was popular with the pollsters so while the House impeached him, the GOP senators refused to remove him, fearing a voter backlash at the next election - the one that George Bush won (barely).

The Republican party has proven itself to be spineless and ineffective so many times in so many ways that I long ago abandoned any hope of impeaching, much less, removing, this president. I think we're just screwed. Thanks, brain-dead voters and Romney haters. Now we'll all suffer for your mistakes.

He can write an EO creating any new law he wants without Congressional approval. Only thing that might stop him is a court challenge, but the courts have shown little desire to reign in either Obama in particular or executive order abuse in general.

he could be after all they sent dumb Joe out when it came to the homosexual and marriage.

Obama cares nothing about Boston, foreign policy, Libya, fast and furious, and has not even mentioned or called the mayor in TX where more people died, more lost their homes, a whole town smashed.

Obama cares about one thing and that is social national policy.

He wants to change this country, get rid of guns, destroy the family, make people rely on welfare and Govt, rip up the constitution as much as he can while making millions of illegals become future Dem voters to change the country for the future.

What ever happened to that fairy boy as a kid must have really hurt him as he hates America being strong, hates the constitution and lets not forget he did state how the constitution stops Govt from imposing and he did state[not says note FOX] how the civil rights did not focus on the courts and judges.

If anyone think Obama cares about what is going on or people losing heir lives they need to check themselves into the nutty farm

I know its a bit off topic but...I figured Barry assigned ‘gun control’ to Joe b/c he knew it could crash and burn (which it did). The politic thing would have been to blame Joe and go on w/ life. Rather Barry embraced the failure as his own, ranted/raved and promised he’d go it alone via EOs. Not real smart in the DC setting. I cant figure out if he’s just stone stupid or 100% ideologue...or something else.

"If a cop kicks in my door tomorrow, because he wants to seize my guns,..."

But right now, they don't really have a good idea of who does or does not own firearms. Can't kick in 30 million doors. At once.

I live in Konnecticut, so they know that I own a revolver - but outside of that they have no idea what else I own (nothing).

According to the link (#32) the Boston attack was staged, they were going to blame a young guy (teen or early 20's), and conduct a raid on Friday ( this blog entry was posted on Monday the day of the attack). So far, the blogger is correct.
They're going to "find" NRA books in the terrorist apt. They're going to use it to blame guns for the powder used to make the bombs. This way, they can go after the powder (ammo) instead of the guns themselves.

Watch for this. If they find NRA material or try to blame "gun powder" for the attack, you'll know this guy was telling the truth.

Heads up - just in case.

[[Is Biden sending up a trial balloon?]]

No- their trial balloon was just gettign hte UNCONSTITUTIONAL bill to the floor for a vote- and hwen they foudn otu that NOONE on the right had any backbone whatsoever, they succeeded in bring this UNCONSTITUTIONAL bill to the floor for a vote where it had NO business beign i nthe first palce-

The trial balloon has already been floated succesfully- openign hte door to MANY MORE UNCONSTITUTIONAL bills beign brought to the floor for a vote because hte left now knows just how spineless the right really is-

I said it a week ago that just brinign hte UNCONSTITUTIONAL to the floor was A massivE DEFEAT FOR THE RIGHT- AND THAT HAD OUR REPRE4SENTATIVES HAD any BACKBONE WHATsoever they woudl have REFUSED to brign it to a vote, held emergency press meetings, and told the american peopel that hteir pre4sident was attemtpting to VIOLATE thgeir inalienable rights and that the republicans would NOT allow it by even deignign to bring such an UNCONSTITUTIONAL bill to a vote-

The right BETRAYED us yet again!

So to answer- the balloon has already been floated and has drifted away already
