Next: Opening the Immigration Floodgates, Confiscating Guns

Disarmed and hopelessly outnumbered in what was once our own country — that’s how liberals want Americans. Then our fate will be completely in their hands. Whether we toil as tax slaves or at gunpoint in labor camps as in other progressive utopias will be completely at the discretion of our mastermind rulers. Obama need push through only two more initiatives:

President Barack Obama will go for immigration reform and gun control this month, the White House tells the left-leaning Huffington Post. Obama’s actions will reportedly be done “quickly.”

“An Obama administration official said the president plans to push for immigration reform this January. The official, who spoke about legislative plans only on condition of anonymity, said that coming standoffs over deficit reduction are unlikely to drain momentum from other priorities. The White House plans to push forward quickly, not just on immigration reform but gun control laws as well,” reports the Huffington Post.

There is no need to wait until after 2014, when Democrats might regain control of the House — at least, not with John Boehner as speaker.

The Huffington Post quotes a Democratic aide who believes “Good news for immigration advocates may have come Tuesday night, when Boehner broke the so-called ‘Hastert Rule’ and allowed the fiscal cliff bill to come for a vote without support from a majority of his Republican conference. Given opposition to immigration reform by many Tea Party Republicans, the proof that Boehner is willing to bypass them on major legislation is a good sign.”

That is, Boehner’s treachery is a good sign for those who want to finish Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America into a Third World socialist dictatorship.

    The words of a young leftist hippie and her view of the “new” America.

    “The State is my shepherd,

    I shall not want.

    It makes me lie down in federally owned pastures.

    It leads me beside quiet waters in banned fishing areas.

    It restores my soul through its control.

    It guides me in the path of dependency for its namesake.

    Even though our nation plunges into the valley of the shadow of debt,

    I will fear no evil,

    For Barack will be with me.

    The Affordable Care Act and food stamps,

    They comfort me.

    You prepare a table of Michelle Obama approved foods before me in the presence of my Conservative and Libertarian enemies.

    You anoint my head with hemp oil;

    My government regulated 16-ounce cup overflows.

    Surely mediocrity and an entitlement mentality will follow me all the days of my life,

    And I will dwell in a low-rent HUD home forever and ever.

    Amen…”

    After reading that, can you think of a better reason to start a revolution?

  • Skyfall

    It’s getting harder and harder to read Moonbattery (this is not meant as a criticism).

    The point has been made over and over: “We” (i.e. 52% of American voters) have elected a socialist dictator to head a mostly socialist leaning administration.

    Now…what are “we” (the “X” percent of Americans who didn’t vote, or voted against him) going to do about it?

    I guess I’m just up to here with “LOOK! Now they’ve done THIS! Now they’re doing THAT” Yes, I get it. These are totalitarian thugs bent on “fundamentally transforming” America.

    AND THEY ARE DOING IT. (Today the House votes on Boo-Hoo remaining Speaker, and Chicago votes to confiscate guns…period.)

    SO WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO BESIDES SAY “LOOK”?

  • Gunny G

    Read the Gulag Archipelago and the perfect quote of what we MUST DO is in the first few pages.

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you’d be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur — what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!”

  • TED
  • Skyfall

    Gunny has it.

    We don’t need to be cracking skulls with axes, but we’ve been so passive.

    STRIKE BACK. Not in a physical sense…it hasn’t come to that (except at union rallies, where the left sees no problem in actual, head-cracking violence). But stop with being polite, stop with engaging in their narrative, stop with allowing them to dictate terms.

    We need a show of power and anger and resolve that will send those people scurrying for a hole to hide in. If they get a huge dose of anger and rage and verbal pummeling (doesn’t need to be vulgar, either) they will think twice about opening their mouths.

    Start pushing back before there is no one left TO push back…and never back down. THEY sure don’t!

    Gunny,
    You nailed it.
    I’m not sure you could fill a football stadium with Americans who have read that incredibly important book.
    It should be required reading. Another cautionary tale would be Armando Valledares’ “Against all Hope”, describing how Hope and Change worked out in Cuba. Also works by Robert Conquest on The Great Terror and the deliberate starvation of millions of Ukranians by Stalin in the Holodomor. Too many people would rather watch Snookie and Honey Boo Boo than read a serious and challenging book.

    This one would make a good candidate for it’s own thread:

    FBI: More People Killed with Hammers, Clubs Each Year Than Rifles

    Perhaps we should look into banning hammers and clubs as they are responsible for more deaths than rifles.

    And that’s not all… we also need to consider banning hands, since more people are murdered each year by hands and fists than rifles.

    According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders committed with a rifle.

    This is an interesting fact, particularly amid the Democrats’ feverish push to ban many different rifles, ostensibly to keep us safe of course.

    However, it appears the zeal of Sens. like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) is misdirected. For in looking at the FBI numbers from 2005 to 2011, the number of murders by hammers and clubs consistently exceeds the number of murders committed with a rifle.

    Think about it: In 2005, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 618.
    And so the list goes, with the actual numbers changing somewhat from year to year, yet the fact that more people are killed with blunt objects each year remains constant.

    For example, in 2011, there was 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs.

    Another interesting fact: According to the FBI, nearly twice as many people are killed by hands and fists each year than are killed by murderers who use rifles.

    The Immigration Floodgates are open only in one direction. Foreign Courts appointed by EU Kommissars can block the extradition of rapists and worse types of criminals from England:

    4,000 foreign murderers and rapists we can’t throw out. . . and, yes, you can blame human rights again

    At the same time, a renegade filmmaker from Pakistan is threatened with being sent back to his certain death by Spain, with NO “concern” that his human fights might be violated:

    And not a single “jooornaliist” investigates! Islamofascists and violent criminals get to stay in England because of “concerns” for their safety at home and a filmmaker who never hurt a fly during his time in Spain is threatened with getting sent to Pakistan where he WILL be put to death.

    Well I can’t get a link to post, not sure why.

    It provides a clear example of how gun control is working (2012 Chicago homicides up 15% vs. 2011) in Chicago… TO PUT LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS AT RISK!

  • Bob Roberts

    You should be able to get the link I mentioned above by searching on REDEYE and “Tracking homicides in Chicago”. I found it by searching on “Chicago murders” I believe.

    Further, gun control is also working in Detroit, if by “working” you mean murders are up!

    Crimes stats released Thursday show a total of 411 homicides last year in the city of Detroit, up from 377 in 2011.

    You prog punks think you’ve got a lock on aggressive behavior and being steadfast. You’re going to find out you don’t, esp. since what you stand for has no foundation…or at least, not a righteous one.

    Excellent piece in response to anti-Second Amendment liberals and blowhards like O’Reilly who have no idea what it takes defend against a mob or knockout game scenario.

    My only hope is that Obama, being the habitual sociopathic liar who tells whomever he’s talking to whatever he thinks they want to hear, doesn’t really mean it.

    Although I think his main interests as president are golf, ego gratification, living the high life, and more ego gratification, it’s another story entirely for the people with whom he surrounds himself.

    Politicians, who usually read the Liberal propaganda and rhetoric in the mainstream press and rural newspapers, would do better to absorb the public reader’s commentary and blogs. This would certainly have some impact on their voting, unless they have already been corrupted by the special interests that are in their faces in the Washington chambers of power. They would immediately know that ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION is a dirty word and the majority of the American people are frustrated that legislators are putty in the hands of big business and all the other pro-illegal alien open border imbeciles. President Obama has stealthily divided the country and it’s worked with great effect. A silent invasion has been taking place for decades and the rot in Congress has been negatively impressive. With 24 million of the U.S. population out-of-work, the morons have a deaf ear to legislators as Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, who has done everything in his power to slow any bills from being read. Standing alone are two bills that could halt the encouragement of illegal aliens into this country. Both bills are extremely powerful in their effect to reduce illegal aliens in the workplace? Exhibit (1) is the LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT (H.R.2885) that uses mandatory E-Verify to identify foreign nationals, replacing them with citizens and legal entries. This updated technological computer program is able to red-flag workers who have no right to any jobs. Audits of businesses after the installation of mandatory E-Verify would be prosecuted and the principle owners and executives would prosecute, fined and even confined.

    Exhibit (2) THE BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP BILL (H.R. 140) would forever end the citizenship of unborn babies smuggled into America, to collect on public assistance benefits; a free education to k-12, free health care, low income housing. Wholly for the descendants of slaves after the Civil War to inherit citizenship, it has been manipulated to any baby delivered in any hospital once across our insecure border, or women who arrives here by international jet. Once here under this cleverly engineered law the woman gets free natal care, plus cash payments for every child she conceives. This law must only be reserved for pregnant mothers who at least parent is already a citizen of the United States, claiming citizenship for their child. We should understand that illegal aliens use this defect in our laws, to remain in this country. So the more children, the more entitlements, that is costing the U.S. taxpayer well over hundred billion dollars annually, and unlikely to grind to a halt unless H.R. 140 finds passage in the House and Senate. Another ominous situation that is the outcome of the baby automatic citizenship 14th amendment declaration, is that proliferates CHAIN MIGRATION FOOTHOLDS of family members and eventually such unconventional Presidential privileges as the Dream Act controversy. Further to this the Internal Revenue Service has remained silent and seems uninterested in the 7 Billion dollar in child tax credits literary stolen through fraud by non-citizens and even the effrontery to send tax refunds outside the country to the quasi children?

    THESE TWO LAWS SHOULD BE PASSED BEFORE ANY RECKLESS MOVEMENT COMPREHENSIVE REFORM.

    After the requirement of The Legal Workforce bill and the Birthright citizenship bill, then the majority of spineless lawmakers can then approve a well regulated Guest Worker program for agriculture, with the caveat that when a contract expires the worker must leave the country. As an addition a more furtive effort to recruit professional workers under the (STEM) policy of highly attained skills. But outside of these jobs no more kowtowing to the 20 million plus illegal aliens who must leave or be deported. Our nation is broke and the honest, inspected and immigrants and citizens must have the priority of all wilting welfare assistance.

    AMERICANS SHOULD DEMAND A FLAT TAX FROM EVERY AMERICAN, WITH NO EXCEPTIONS OR SPECIAL DEDUCTIONS AS FAVORS TO BUSINESSES OR FRIENDS OF POLITICIANS. A FAIR AND EQUITABLE FLAT TAX FOR ALL? IT’S YOUR MONEY THEY ARE SPENDING NOT THEIRS?

    America’s President” is tightening his deadly grip on America’s throat and a catastrophic coup is coming. Obama has yet to be sworn in and already he is preparing his minions for gun grabbing, more tax and spend, enacting immigration laws and bypassing Congress. Now that Obama has been reelected he is emboldened to act beyond the constraints of the U.S. Constitution, converting our free-enterprise republic into a Soviet Socialist State of government control.
