  • Obama Threatened With Impeachment If Executive Action Used For Gun Control

    Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) is threatening to file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures via executive order. “I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment,” Stockman said in a statement Monday, according to the Daily Caller. The Weekly Standard reported that Obama used the final press conference of his first term in office Monday to offer some details on Vice President Joe Biden’s expected gun control recommendations: “My understanding is the...

    This is a guest post by the Very Honorable Ima Librul, Senator from the State of Confusion Utopia. He recently explained some of his difficulties in growing pineapples and focuses here on other major problems and opportunities facing modern American society. We are privileged to have a post of this caliber by a quintessential Librul such as the Senator, a charter member of President Obama's Go For It Team. Restrictions on firearm use and ownership will stimulate individual initiative, redistribute wealth and end welfare as we know it.BackgroundMany conservatives have written harshly of President Obama's splendid modernization of our welfare...

    Eldon Bell, a retired Air Force officer and physician, is making no plans to see Barack Obama’s second inauguration, in part because Bell considers the president arrogant and dishonest, but more so because Bell is not yet persuaded that the swearing-in will occur at all. “Whether I watch depends on who’s being inaugurated,” says Bell, 78. “If it’s this guy, probably not, because I don’t pay much attention to illegitimate things.”

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Joe Biden, the vice president of the United States. Now, we were told last week that Biden was heading up a commission made up of administration officials and cabinet officials on what to do about guns and the increasing proliferation of guns. One of the things that Biden suggested was they're looking at legislation, executive orders, so forth and so on. The Politico, a joyous Politico, I should say, has a story today: "The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control." This is what Biden told a...

    If President Obama and congressional Democrats are going to make headway on the gun violence proposals Vice President Joe Biden is set to deliver to the president on Tuesday, their strategy will probably look a lot like gun-owning Rep. Mike Thompson – and move with the energy and purpose of political cage fighter Rahm Emanuel. Representative Thompson (D) of California remembers where he was on Dec. 14, the day of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting. He was in a duck blind, back home in his Napa Valley district. “Federal law prohibits me from having more than three shells in my...

    Since the Affordable Care Act was implemented, there have been many “complications” to implementing the law. One of the most recent was the majority of states choosing to not run a state-based health care exchange. On December 18, however, Cato’s Michael Cannon picked out another one: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act imposes a $2,000-per-worker charge on employers only if one of their employees receives a “premium assistance tax credit,” and the act authorizes those credits only if states create their own exchanges. If a state opts instead for a federal exchange, as more than 30 states have, the...

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced this afternoon that President Obama will unveil a “concrete package” of gun control proposals including assault weapons bans, high capacity ammunition magazine bans, and closing loopholes on background checks. Carney said that the president will be joined by Vice President Joe Biden as well as children who wrote to the president after the Newtown shootings. “They will be joined by children around the country expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents,” Carney confirmed. (See video of Carney's remarks here.) President Obama specifically mentioned children during his December...

    The United States might just as well send Jared Lee Loughner or, if he was still alive, Adam Lanza, to represent it in the world community, and this is no exaggeration. John Kerry is, per his own admission, a mass murderer just like Loughner and Lanza or, to use his own words, Genghis Khan. John Kerry: Admitted Felon, Liar, or Both There is a huge legal difference between an admitted felon and a convicted felon. Neither John Kerry nor Barack Obama's friend William Ayers was ever convicted of a felony, but both said they committed felonies. Ayers said he was...

    Today Vice President Joe Biden is submitting his report to President Barack Obama on gun control and one thing is becoming clear - up to 50-80% of all guns in circulation will be affected by his suggestions. As we reported earlier regarding Dianne Feinstein's proposal, it will affect 50% of all long guns and 80% of all handguns. The proposal includes the creation of a national database of gun owners, tracking who owns what guns and private gun sales would fade into history. The proposal is all gun sales will need to have a Brady Check and for most guns...

    If laws were enough to deter criminal behavior prisons would be empty. The latest effort to "control" guns in America is as likely to deter someone intent on breaking the law as outlawing lust would affect one's libido. What's in a heart can't be controlled by restricting what's in a hand. Following the Newtown tragedy, President Obama vowed to seek the passage of an assault weapons ban and hastily assembled an administration-wide gun control task force, an effort that amounts to little more than a political act designed to impress what Rush Limbaugh calls "low-information voters." Government must be seen...

    Up to 50-80% of all guns in circulation could be covered Press reports now make it clear what Vice President Joe Biden’s gun control package will look like. Biden wants to impose: * A Feinstein-like semi-auto ban which, according to experts who have done the counting, could ban up to 50% of all long guns currently in circulation and up to 80% of all handguns. Incidentally, if you wanted to keep the AR-15 you currently have, you would have to have a 6-month FBI background check, be fingerprinted, and get a machine gun-type license. * The framework for national gun...

    Now the other shoes begin to drop. Voters knew in November that many of the promises Obama made in 2008 had been broken. The economy had not revived as he had promised it would ("or we'll be talking about a one-term proposition"). He has not "changed the tone in Washington" -- except for the worse. He didn't prevent lobbyists from holding positions in his administration. He didn't cut the deficit in half; he increased it radically. But voters apparently decided that the president deserved credit for good intentions. How long will that indulgence last? The next four years, whatever else...
