    President Obama pushed back against criticism earlier this week that he is too insular and not social enough in Washington. He said simply, “I like a good party.” Today, he reinforced the message. Leaving a farewell reception at the Treasury Department for Secretary Timothy Geithner, Obama was asked “So, you like a good party?” “They didn’t serve any alcohol,” Obama responded with a big grin, as he appeared to munch on something.

    (CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said action must be taken in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School because members of Congress took an oath to “protect and defend,” although the actual oath says to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States ….” Pelosi held a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee hearing on "Gun Violence Prevention: A Call to Action,” where she endorsed the gun control proposals President Barack Obama unveiled today. “Earlier this month, shortly after Newtown, all members of Congress took an oath to protect and defend the...

    Everybody — everyblogger — is supposed to make some comment on Obama’s anti-gun announcement today. I’ve been thinking about it and here’s mine: I don’t care. It doesn’t matter whether he called for outright confication (he didn’t; not yet) or whether he actually wussed out under “conservative” pressure. (H/T D for the link even if I don’t buy its nice, hopeful content.)

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Braced for a fight, President Barack Obama on Wednesday unveiled the most sweeping proposals for curbing gun violence in two decades, pressing a reluctant Congress to pass universal background checks and bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the Newtown, Conn., school shooting. A month after that horrific massacre, Obama also used his presidential powers to enact 23 measures that don't require the backing of lawmakers. The president's executive actions include ordering federal agencies to make more data available for background checks, appointing a director of the Bureau of Alcohol,...

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is making a last-minute pitch to persuade President Barack Obama to stop using hunting as a “justification” for owning guns. In a letter to Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, PETA called out the president for saying after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that “the vast majority of gun owners in America are responsible — they buy their guns legally, and they use them safely, whether for hunting or sport shooting, collection or protection.” “[T]here is nothing ‘responsible’ about making a sport out of killing, about hunting, or about teaching children to...

    In 1999, State Senator Barack Obama voted “present” on a bill that would require adult prosecution for discharging a gun in or near a school. That legislation came as a response to the tragic Columbine High School shooting that year. SB 759 provided that anyone 15 years of age or older charged with aggravated battery with a weapon in school or within 1,000 feet of a school would be charged as an adult.

[snip] But a closer look at the numbers shows that Obama is exaggerating how much deficit reduction he's actually achieved, and is being decidedly Pollyannaish about the nation's still massive long-term budget gap and what will be needed to close it.

    Group with enormous influence on White House issues specific plans A progressive group with enormous influence on White House policy has issued specific recommendations to the Obama administration on how to push sweeping gun control, including suggestions for executive orders. The Center for American Progress released an 11-page proposal, reviewed by WND, calling for a full ban on the sale of assault weapons and magazines with a capacity for more than 10 bullets. CAP suggests legislation to require licensing and transfer restrictions on new and existing assault rifles. The CAP paper, delivered to the White House last week, recommends that...

    Hattip to Jim Treacher. CNN talking head Piers Morgan, desperately trying to hold on to any shreds of credibility after his shellacking by Ben Shapiro, emitted this email: America has over 5000 nuclear warheads. Quite hard to defend against a ‘tyrannical U.S. government’ with that kind of firepower. Where to begin? First, it is unlikely that even the most mad US President would decide to use nukes to put down a rebellion in these United States. Too many of his own supporters would be killed and the overall reaction would likely be for the rebellion to grow as a result...
  • Obama's Long History of Radical, Anti-Constitutional Gun Control (Vanity)

    I was shocked to hear some in my local media market trying to rewrite Obama as a gun-friendly, Second Amendment guy, just trying to introduce some “reasonable” regulation in an understandable reaction to the recent spate of "gun violence." The following links are provided to show that this is a complete mischaracterization, that Obama has in fact been out of step with the Second Amendment for a long time, and in fact has been focused for at least 17 years on the same kind of all-out ban that just passed in New York: In 1996, Obama responded to a political...

    New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Monday told a group of Johns Hopkins students that President Obama ought to sidestep the wishes of Congress and order swift new executive gun control measures. “There are steps that President Obama can take without congressional approval at any time he chooses with just one stroke of the pen,” Bloomberg told the mixed audience of students and scholars, speaking at the “Gun Policy Summit” at Johns Hopkins University. Bloomberg’s remarks came hours before President Obama argued in a rare press conference that executive privileges afforded him the power to implement some federal gun...

    What do you call it when the bane of your political agenda is actually the source of your salvation? Hypocrisy! Barack Obama – our benevolent, omnipotent, and concerned despot – plans to stand amidst a group of young, quivering children as he unveils his sweeping and unconstitutional gun control measures at the White House. Tragically, there won’t be one of the over 60 million gun owners in America who faithfully exercised their Second Amendment rights last year without incident. Lost in the circus of contrived circumstance will be the realization that many of these forsaken souls bravely foiled and prevented...

    Follow @RedNation2016 on Twitter https://www.facebook.com/RedNation2016 Have you heard of Rep. Edward Acevedo? I hadn’t either until last week. He’s an Illinois House Member. A Chicago Democrat. Chicago politics are bad on their own. Illinois democrat policies have the potential to be bad. Combining the two is recipe for disaster. Rep. Acevedo was one of the sponsors of Senate Bill 957, which allows illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses. It has passed both chambers of the General Assembly and now goes to Governor Pat Quinn for his signature (Quinn reportedly will sign it into law). Something so absurd surely had to...

    The Week ^ | January 15, 2013 | Ryu Spaeth
    This week, as lawmakers in Congress braced themselves for a protracted and impassioned debate over gun control, Democratic governors moved swiftly to push tough new gun laws in response to the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo easily shepherded legislation through a divided state legislature to produce the strictest gun laws in the country. Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has proposed similarly stringent measures, including a ban on assault weapons, while Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has called for universal background checks on all gun sales. And what do all three governors have in common (besides a strong...
