  • VP Biden Says “Assault Weapons” Ban is Just the Beginning, Semi-Automatics are for the Military

    JOE BIDEN: And lastly, but not least, the Assault Weapons ban and the limitation on the size of magazines, let me say this as clearly as I can: this is just the beginning. We believe that weapons of war have no place on our streets. That’s the message that the retired admirals and generals have spoken to us about. The comment one of them used was: if you want to learn how to use a semi-automatic weapon, join the United States military, but these are weapons of war, and we believe there’s no rational reason why someone would need a...
  • Home-schooling family who fled to U.S. from Germany face deportation

    The Obama administration is arguing in federal court that a homeschooling family from Germany should be deported back to their homeland, despite what they say is religious persecution. The German government prevented Uwe and Hannelore Romeike from teaching their five children at home instead of sending them to government-run schools, fining them and threatening to prosecute them if they don't obey. When they took their three oldest children out of school in 2006, police showed up at their house within 24 hours, only leaving after a group of supporters showed up and organized a quick protest. But their legal troubles...

    Mark Levin opened his show tonight discussing Obama’s new executive order to create an election commission to study problems that Obama says exist on the local and state level, like people standing in line too long in waiting to vote. But Levin wants to know where the evidence exists to substantiate these so-called problems. In fact, he believes that Obama is trying to nationalize the election process so the federal government will have more control over it. Here’s an short excerpt: In the ratification debates in the states, after the Constitutional Convention ended, after they sent draft copies of the...

    The White House announced Thursday the formation of a nine-seat Presidential Commission on Election Administration tasked with recommending changes to states’ election laws by the end of September. “The Commission shall identify best practices and otherwise make recommendations to promote the efficient administration of elections in order to ensure that all eligible voters have the opportunity to cast their ballots without undue delay, and to improve the experience of voters facing other obstacles,” said Obama’s executive order, issued March 28. State elections are conducted by states, usually under state laws. However, the federal Congress has the constitutional authority to “any...

    Part Three: The Law Enforcement Provision Part 1 documented deliberate red flags placed into Virginia Sunahara’s fabricated death certificate by a HDOH worker, which is presumably that worker’s protest at being ordered to illegally falsify records. Similar red flags are found in the BC’s of Ah Nee and Obama (more on Obama’s later). Part 2 documented that 4 of the 6 Aug 1961 BC#’s on legal documents issued by the HDOH could not have been the BC’s originally assigned in 1961. The anomalous BC#’s revealed so far belong to Virginia Sunahara, Johanna Ah Nee, Barack Obama, and Stig Waidelich. Obama’s...

    Washington: US President Barack Obama will unveil his long-awaited budget for the fiscal year 2014 on April 10, two months after he was required by law to do so, the White House said on Thursday. Obama's fiscal blueprint has been held up by successive showdowns between the White House and Republicans in Congress on taxation and spending. House of Representatives Republicans and Senate Democrats have passed dueling budgets in their respective chambers, and Obama's version will set off a new round of wrangling on how best to cut the deficit.

    New York Democratic Rep. Jose Serrano reintroduced a bill in Congress on Friday to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which places term limits on the U.S. presidency. The bill, which has been referred to committee, would allow Barack President Obama to become the first president since Franklin Roosevelt to seek a third term in office. H.J. Res. 15 proposes “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.”
  • FAA chief says drones will force change at agency (30,000 drones by 2020)

    LAS VEGAS — For the Federal Aviation Administration, regulating the skies is about to get much more complicated. The FAA’s acting administrator, Michael P. Huerta, told drone industry leaders gathered in Las Vegas on Tuesday that the agency is poised to “realign” itself to prepare for the coming explosion of unmanned aerial vehicles. They’re now available only to military and law enforcement, but the FAA will begin granting personal and commercial licenses in 2015. It estimates that there could be as many as 30,000 drones flying above the U.S. by 2020.

    The Environmental Protection Agency will move ahead Friday with rules requiring cleaner gasoline and cars nationwide, despite fierce protests from the oil industry and some conservative Democrats, according to several individuals briefed on the matter. The proposed rules — which had been stuck in regulatory limbo since December 2011 in the face of intense political opposition — would cut the amount of sulfur in U.S. gasoline by two-thirds and impose fleetwide pollution limits on new vehicles by 2017. The regulation enjoys support from auto companies, state regulators, environmental groups and equipment manufacturers. But oil industry officials and their congressional allies...

    President Barack Obama pushed back Thursday against suggestions that the prospects for passing federal gun-control measures are fading, admonishing Congress not to “get squishy” on the issue. The president, who appeared frustrated by lawmakers’ lack of action, made a forceful plea to remember the horror of the December massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., and to take steps aimed at preventing future gun violence. “Less than 100 days ago that happened, and the entire country was shocked,” Mr. Obama said. “And the entire country pledged we would do something about it and that this time would be different....
  • Harry Reid’s New Gun Control Bill Is Designed To Destroy Gun Ownership

    Freedom Outpost ^ | Mar. 28, 2013 | Tim Brown
    Since Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) massive gun control bill is going down in flames due to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) decision to stop it in its tracks, that didn’t mean that the gun grab was over. In fact, that seems to have been all political theater. The real threat comes in Harry Reid’s own S 649 bill, or as its innocuous title is referred to as Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013. It’s anything but safe for communities, schools or freedom and has sweeping legislation that has the potential to destroy gun ownership in America. Because of...

    There are more Americans today collecting food stamps than ever before, and that number is expected to rise steadily for the rest of the year, according to the CBO. The Wall Street Journal reports: The financial crisis is over and the recession ended in 2009. But one of the federal government's biggest social welfare programs, which expanded when the economy convulsed, isn't shrinking back alongside the recovery. Enrollment in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, as the modern-day food-stamp benefit is known, has soared 70% since 2008 to a record 47.8 million as of December 2012. Congressional budget analysts think participation...
  • Wrong Again: Obama Claims 40% Of Gun Sales Done Without Background Check

    Breitbart ^ | 3/28/13 | AWR Hawkins
    During his March 28 comments on "gun violence," President Obama once again claimed that 40% of gun purchases take place without a background check. The claim is meant to apply to new gun sales and is patently false, as Breitbart News demonstrated when Obama first used the 40% figure during a speech on Jan. 16. As Breitbart News explained then, many gun grabbers get the "40%" figure from a 2011 study by NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, titled: "Point, Click, Fire: An Investigation Into Illegal Online Gun Sales."

    The EU/IMF precedent of raiding bank accounts in Cyprus to bail out the country's financial system sets a dangerous precedent and investors should "run for the hills" said investor Jim Rogers, chairman of Rogers Holdings, on "Squawk on the Street" Thursday. Rogers said that with Cyprus, politicians are saying that this is a special case and urging people not to worry, but that is exactly why investors should be concerned. "What more do you need to know? Please, you better hurry, you better run for the hills. I'm doing it anyway," Rogers said. "I want to make sure that I...

    Over a third of Americans have a venereal disease, according to the CDC. At the present rate, those who have problems with their personal equipment will surpass those with jobs by the end of Obama’s second term. The CDC finding that 110,197,000 Americans have an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) was reported by CNS News. In 2008, the last year reported, 19.8 million Americans contracted STIs. “CDC’s new estimates show that there are about 20 million new infections in the United States each year, costing the American healthcare system nearly $16 billion in direct medical costs alone,” said a CDC fact...

The new rule, which was buried in a spending bill signed this week, comes after a string of hacks traced back to China hit some of America's most important companies. It will only be in effect until the end of the fiscal year on September 30,

    On March 28, billionaire investor Jim Rogers appeared as a guest on the CNBC program, Squawk on the Street. During the four minute interview, Rogers was pointedly asked if what occurred in Cyprus was a one time deal, or if this is now a template for the future of Western economies and banks. Without hesitation, Rogers said that this is going to happen, and taking people's money from their bank accounts is a certainty as both the IMF and ECB have already condoned it in their precedent.

    President Barack Obama’s influence is disappearing to the point that he is just a “minor actor on Capitol Hill” and even Democrats believe he is doing little but get in the way, Karl Rove has charged. “No president is ever irrelevant, but less than 10 weeks into his second term Mr. Obama’s power is waning,” Rove writes in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal. “Even members of his own party view him as an obstacle to getting things done.” …

    President Obama is issuing a new executive order on Thursday aimed at cracking down on election problems — but specifics are still scarce. Read between the lines of the group’s mission statement, and it seems the group will be overseeing state election laws, to at least some degree. Politico reports Mr. Obama’s order creates a new presidential commission on election body, co-chaired by two lawyers, Bob Bauer and Ben Ginsburg. Mr. Bauer served on the campaign of Mr. Obama in 2012; Mr. Ginsberg, on Mitt Romney’s campaign, Politico says.
