  • Joe Biden Gets "Frisky" and Wants to Grab Your Gun!!!

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 1-6-2013 | MOTUS
    I see that Joey “spread-your-legs-you’re-gonna-get-frisked” Biden has been busy again. He’s the hardest working man in government business. Last week he all butt single handedly built the diving platform for us to jump off the fiscal cliff:     And now I see that he’s close to developing awesome legislation that will apparently prevent all future mass murders – something nobody’s been able to accomplish yet! He did cheat a little on this one though. He’s taken the Affordable Care Act template and plans to use it as a road map for how to ram it down our throats get...
  • Barack Obama’s $7 million Hawaii vacation is an insult to America’s struggling middle class

    $16.4 trillion – that’s the latest figure for America’s massive national debt. Nearly $6 trillion of this debt was racked up in the first term of the Obama presidency – a 50 percent increase. It is horrifying to imagine what the debt will be when Obama leaves the White House in 2016, unless Congress has the willpower to stand in the way. Meanwhile, as the world’s superpower is literally drowning in debt, President Obama is basking in the warmth of the beaches of Hawaii, at an exclusive resort way beyond the financial reach of most Americans. The president pays the...
  • How can a Convicted Felon be writing gun laws? (Vanity)

    01/06/2013 7:25:52 AM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 31 replies
    Serious question. How can a convicted felon, who cannot even walk into a gun store to purchase a gun, be allowed to WRITE gun legislation? There is something seriously wrong with this country when this is allowed. This rule needs to be changed. This pisses me off more than I can say. We need to make it clear to those in power that not only is an AWB out of the question, but that things like this need to change. Common sense would dictate that if you cannot buy a gun you cannot have a part in writing gun laws!...

After a day of golf, President Obama on Friday night had a long, late dinner in Waikiki, spending more than 3 1/2 hours at Nobu restaurant. Joined by First Lady Obama and an unidentified group of friends, the President arrived at the "perennially hip" Waikiki Parc Hotel at 8:35 PM, home to Nobu, which bills itself as "yet another canvas for Chef Nobu Matsuhisa to display his legendary dishes." The closed-off streets around the hotel filled with excited crowds as word of the President's presence spread through Waikiki....

    Americans around the nation were shocked Friday as they heard about H.J.Res. 15. H.J.Res 15 proposes an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment. This would remove the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President. Rep. José Serrano (D- NY15) introduced the controversial joint resolution on Friday, the second day of the 2013 legislative session.

    COLUMBIA — Ammunition, guns and accessories lined the tables of the 135 vendors at the Columbia Gun Show, which continues Sunday at the Boone County Fairgrounds. By Saturday afternoon, sales had doubled from last year, and attendance continued to rise, Dennis Pearson, manager of the gun show, said. One thousand people had entered the doors Friday evening, and he was expecting another 2,500 on Saturday. Vendors at the show attributed rising sales and increased attendance on the possibility for stricter gun regulations and a potential ban on assault weapons such as the AR-15 used in the Newtown, Conn., shootings at...

    Florida Circuit Judge Kevin Carroll, who previously cited the fictitious judge in “Miracle on 34th Street” in a ruling, now says he’s done with arguments over Barack Obama’s eligibility. Carroll released an order today refusing to hear a request for a hearing that is allowed under state law when there are doubts about a candidate’s eligibility. And let that be the last, the judge said. “No petitions for clarification or further rehearing will be entertained by the court,” he said in his ruling that refused to respond to a request for the state-allowed hearing in a case brought by Michael...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | January 5, 2013 | Wynton Hall
    Obamacare opponents warned that forcing companies employing 50 or more full-time workers to buy healthcare would prompt employers to slash jobs and worker hours. And that’s exactly what’s happening, says one of President Barack Obama’s favorite economists, Mark Zandi of Moody’s Analytics. “It will have a negative impact on job creation” this year, says Mr. Zandi. The Obamacare employer mandate doesn’t go into effect until January 1, 2014, but the government requires businesses to track worker schedules for three to 12 months in advance. That means many employers plan to get a jump start on avoiding Obamacare’s $2,000 per-worker fine...

    SNIP A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said. To sell such changes, the White House is developing strategies to work around the National Rifle Association that one source said could include rallying support from Wal-Mart and other gun retailers for measures that would benefit their businesses. White House aides...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.,January 13, 2013, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Provisions that protect the conscience rights of military chaplains that were included in the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) are “unnecessary and ill-advised” said President Obama in a signing statement this week. Section 533 of the defense bill was crafted in response to fears that the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy under the Obama administration would lead to reprisals against chaplains who have moral objections to the homosexual lifestyle, or who refuse to perform same-sex “weddings.” That section says that no member of the armed forces may “require a...

    ... With one crisis for the short term [fiscal cliff], Obama faces new battles in Congress over raising the country's $16.4 trillion borrowing limit, as well as more than $100 billion in automatic spending cuts for the military and domestic programs which were delayed by two months under the compromise. Lawmakers promise to replace those across-the-board cuts with more targeted steps that could take longer to implement. Obama, speaking from Hawaii, where he is on vacation with his family, said he is willing to consider more spending cuts and tax increases to reduce the deficit. But he said he "will...

    If we are to preserve our First Amendment rights, judges must refrain from telling plaintiffs challenging the HHS mandate that they’ve got their theology wrong.Are judges more competent to determine what a particular religion requires or forbids than that religion’s own leaders or adherents? Most would think not. Yet that’s what two of the recent rulings related to the Health and Human Services contraception, sterilization, and abortion-drug mandate seem to claim. Recently, in Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. v. Sebelius, federal district judge Joe Heaton of the western district of Oklahoma ruled against the Greens, the devout Christian owners of Hobby...

These events have pushed gun issues to the forefront of the media and public attention. Local gun retailers, like many across the nation, are reporting increases in gun and ammunition sales following the Connecticut shootings. Gun retailers are reporting that customers are purchasing new weapons out of a fear of possible new gun control measures. Retailers including Wheeler's, P&M Outdoors and Phillips & Sons Pawnbrokers of Elkins are reporting a significant increase of gun and ammunition...

    A federal court has ruled that South Carolina was the prevailing party in the unnecessary Voter ID litigation, and therefore the Justice Department is liable for paying the state’s costs. South Carolina spent $3,500,000 to obtain federal court approval of the state’s Voter ID law as non-discriminatory under the Voting Rights Act. The lawsuit was made necessary only because of the political and ideological radicalism of Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez and his deputy Matthew Colangelo. AAG Tom Perez PJ Media had this exclusive report detailing that career Voting Section employees, including Voting Section Chief Chris Herren, recommended that the...

It's home to about half a dozen exclusive hotels and it is also the Obama family vacation destination. Last year Obama's dog Bo visited some damage to the property the Obama's rented so this year Obama issued an Executive Order guaranteeing that the taxpayers of the United States would make good for any damage Bo left this year.

  • Obama may Ignore the Debt Ceiling and Suspend the Constitution: Obama and the Debt Ceiling

    The American Thinker ^ | January 5, 2013 | Jonathon Moseley
    The debt ceiling is the last leverage that Republicans have to prevent out-of-control Federal spending and on various policy issues. Liberals know this: even as Senate Democrats talk of ending the right of Republicans to filibuster, liberals are seeking to defang the Republican House of Representatives as well. They are also now peddling a new theme that the debt ceiling itself is unconstitutional under Section 4 of the 14th Amendment. Therefore, President Obama may simply ignore the debt ceiling. The looming debt ceiling fight could allow Republicans to soundly defeat Obama's overspending. In the "fiscal cliff" deal, Republicans succeeded by...
