Divided by the Whitehouse

Excerpt From

 Abraham Lincoln’s Lyceum Address  January 27, 1838

“Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia, and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest, with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge in a trial of a thousand years. At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer. If it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must live through all time or die by suicide.”

Lincoln understood that a house divided could not stand. “If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher.”

For those of us that firmly believe in the second amendment, we are being bamboozled.  But even worse off, the gun haters who are buying into the misdirection and divisive tactics of the Whitehouse administration and yes, our president.

From the very first post California islamic terrorist attack press conference, Barack Hussein Obama began shifting the blame to the lack of gun control laws and the left wingers bit into it in a big way.  Think about this, he wouldn’t even say there was potential terrorism here, but he would say this tragedy proves the need for more gun control laws. Blame the guns, not the criminals.

This has been expanded upon in every subsequent press conference by the Whitehouse and further expanded upon by the left and liberal biased media and every liberal with access to social media.  In rebuttal, the pro-gun nation has responded in kind trying to defend their position.  It’s become a reinvigorated national debate.  Just spend a few hours on Facebook and look at the inordinate amount of space devoted to these two sides going after each other.  It’s epidemic!  We’re being distracted.

This is just what the Whitehouse intended and we fell into their trap.  We’re are no longer focused on, and united by, a common threat (Islamic Terrorism) we’re divided by our passions over an issue that is distracting us from the reality of crime and terror.

Now is the time for us to be united, liberal and conservative, and this divisive Whitehouse has managed to put a wedge between us on this issue like so many other issues under the current regime’s watch.  At the very time in which we should be united against a common enemy……..we’re divided.

Why is the Whitehouse and the president trying to build division amongst us?

It’s a diversionary tactic and we’re all buying into it.  Barack Hussein Obama does not want to deal with the problem of the Islamic State (ISIS) or domestic Islamic terrorism.  We can speculate on his motives all day long, but why?  It really doesn’t matter what his motives are because he’s not going to do anything about these issues anyway.  He wants to kick the can down the road and leave this mess to a Republican administration which is certain to be elected next year.  Then when the new administration gets into a ground war in the middle east, he will not have been a part of it.  This pussy gets to keep his skirt clean and blame it on the Republicans?  So while we’re spending our time debating gun control, we’ve taken our eyes of the immediate threat and are not pursuing or insisting on actions and solutions to Islamic Terrorism both domestic and abroad.

So, it’s our responsibility to get the train back on the tracks.  The gun haters are perfectly content to blame the guns.  We, as supporters of the second amendment need to focus our energy on what’s important, being safe from Islamic terrorism and crime.  We need to do a better job of directing the national consensus back to this goal.

How do we do start to do that? Stop wasting your time arguing with liberal idiots about gun control and get the focus back on the real issue.  My friend Don always says”  Never argue with an idiot.  Because, sooner or later, to get them to understand you, you’re going to have to lower yourself to their level.”

How to talk to a Liberal?

So the next time you’re confronted with,

“We need gun control because you’re more likely to be killed by a gun in a crime, than by a terrorist.”

Your answer should be, “you’re right, I agree.  I agree that today I’m more likely to be killed by a criminal than a terrorist.  But where I come from, a terrorist is a criminal, whether they use a gun, a knife, a bomb or an airplane.”

Now, follow up with a question, “What do you think we should do about terrorism in light of the fact that they’ll use any means necessary to kill people?”

Don’t get into the debate with them over gun control, you’re not going to waste your time with that.  You’ve engaged them now, told them they were right or so they think and even asked them for advise on the real problem.  Bingo, you’ve done it.  You’ve got them past the issue of gun control and moved them in a direction of thinking about the real threat terrorism.

“There are more guns in this country than people, we don’t need all these guns and should get rid of them.”

Your answer, “ You’re right, we do have more guns than people, and with what’s going on with ISIS, in France and now here, gun sales for personal protection are on the rise.”  “People are really concerned over their personal safety,”  “What do you think they should do?”

Again you’ve agreed with them on some level, you’ve outlined a threat of which they have obviously ignored, and asked question that they probably haven’t thought about.  You see, their focus is the guns and the control, they’re not thinking about the real and actual threats.  This is exactly what the Whitehouse and liberals want………  Instead of wasting your time arguing about Guns and Gun Control, you’ve now got them pondering your questions and this will force them to consider the real problem.  It will redirect their focus where it belongs.

“All the NRA cares about is getting money by lobbying for Gun Manufacturers.”

You’re reply, “yes your right, they are the biggest gun lobby and aside from their membership fees, they probably get a lot of money from gun manufacturers.”  “They must spend a lot of money on protecting their clients and the second amendment.”  

“You know, I looked at their website, they do a lot of gun safety training and even have advise for people who aren’t gun owners, like, how to teach your children about gun safety, even if you don’t own a gun.”  “With all of the gun owners out there, I bet our kids have gone into homes with guns in them and we didn’t even know it.”  

“It’s probably a good ideal to teach our children about gun safety, have you ever talked to your kids about what to do if they ever see a gun in someones house?” 

You’ve agreed with them, educated them and once again asked them a question that might get them thinking about the importance of gun safety.  If they have children, I bet they go online and at least give it a look.

In these three examples, you can see that it’s more important that we get people motivated to deal with the most pressing issues. You’re not going to change someones mind on gun control in a conversation at a party or interacting on social media, so don’t waste your time.  Instead, use that time to help get them focused and enlighten them on the issues that matter.

Whether Barack Hussein Obama and his administration are kicking the can down the road for the next president or want to end American as we know it, we can’t become an unwitting partner.  It’s clear that they want to use gun control as a diversion and the left is willing to go along.  Let’s not fall into this trap and use this opportunity to guide the misguided.

“I know you can fight but, it’s our wits that make us men”  Words of wisdom from Malcolm Wallace to his son William (Braveheart).

Obama: Pass a bill or I’ll rip up the Constitution

The president does not have the right to overturn laws he does not like. The former constitutional law professor knew that in 2010. When asked why he had not pushed through a bill to legalize undocumented immigrants, Obama told Univision: “I am president; I am not king. I can’t do these things just by myself. We have a system of government that requires the Congress to work with the executive branch to make it happen.”

On Nov. 20, when Obama announced the expansion of his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to include undocumented adults, he said, “To those members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better, or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer: Pass a bill.”

George Washington University law Professor Jonathan Turley is an Obama voter who is appalled. Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Turley charged that partisan “division is no license to ‘go it alone’ as the president has suggested. You have only two choices in our system when facing political adversaries: You can either seek to convince them or to replace them. This is obviously frustrating for presidents (and their supporters) who want to see real changes and to transcend gridlock. However, there is nothing noble in circumventing the Constitution. The claim of any one person that they can ‘get the job done’ unilaterally is the very Siren’s Call that our Framers warned us to resist.”

The Constitution charges the president to “take care that the law be faithfully executed”; Obamaland contends it is simply engaging in executive discretion. But Judge Hanen countered, “Exercising prosecutorial discretion and/or refusing to enforce a statute does not also entail bestowing benefits” — like Social Security cards, work permits and the ability to travel.

In supporting the president’s imperious go-it-alone approach, Democratic leaders have acquiesced to what Turley calls “their own institutional obsolescence.” They’ve handed a tool of mischief to the next chief executive.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has a chance to be relevant by pushing a bill that would grant legal status to undocumented immigrants brought here as minors. Such a bill also would continue funding for the Department of Homeland Security before a Feb. 27 budget deadline. The Senate and White House would bristle about a package less generous than the big bill passed by a Democratic Senate in 2013, but if enacted, such a measure would be the law of the land until and unless a new Congress and president overrode it. Unless, that is, Americans decide the Constitution doesn’t mean anything.

Obama compares pardoning turkeys to executive order on immigration

Posted: November 26, 2014 by gamegetterII in Obama

At Wednesday afternoon’s White House ceremony for the traditional annual presidential pardon of turkeys from being served up for Thanksgiving dinner, Barack Obama likened the action to his executive order last week on illegal aliens. The president made the remarks before assembled press with daughters Malia and Sasha present before sparing the lives of turkeys Mac and Cheese, the beneficiaries of his latest order.

“Today, I’m taking an action fully within my legal authority,” the president remarked in a seeming mocking dig at critics of his policy of allowing federal law to be flouted and rewarding those who break it. “I know some will call this amnesty, but don’t worry, there’s plenty of turkey to go around.”

It’s instructive that Obama evidently deems it proper to joke about equivalency between “undocumented” foreign nationals and turkeys, or that it is within his purview to issue a blanket pardon on their behalf when none has been requested as per Justice Department requirements, and would be rejected by those who feel it is their right to live, work and vote in this country regardless of its laws. At this writing, there has been no reported reaction on social media feeds for immigrant activist groups on how they feel about the comparisons.
