Politico - Biden: White House Readies 19 'Executive Actions' on Guns

By Reid J. Epstein | Politico

The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Later this week, Obama will formally announce his proposals to reduce gun violence, which are expected to include renewal of the assault weapons ban, universal background checks and prohibition of high-capacity magazine clips. But Biden, who has been leading Obama’s task force on the response, spent two hours briefing a small group of sympathetic House Democrats on the road ahead in the latest White House outreach to invested groups.

The focus on executive orders is the result of the White House and other Democrats acknowledging the political difficulty of enacting any new gun legislation, a topic Biden did not address in Monday’s meeting.

google Index to SSRI stories. Why does nether the news media nor the White house ever talk about this? Once Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Nazi Germany he called for gun control legislation. How did that workout for the people of Nazi Germany?

Executive Orders are FULL TYRANNY IN ACTION.

King Bush abused them left and right too.

But now King Obama is continuing the practice of usurping the idea of a representative republic.

Today, if the House of representatives had grown as our founders ordered, there would be over 7000 members of the House.

BUT NO - In 1912, they passed a law to limit the size of the U.S. House to what it is today - 435.

So the ONLY part of the government which was DESIGNED to grow with the population, was limited, while the rest of government grew like a weed.

George Washington suggested ONE representativer per 30,000 citizens. And that's what the CENSUS was for.

But today, each member of the House representatives 700,000 on average.

So between only having to to convince a mere 218 U.S. representatives to vote for bad laws and using executive orders from the president, we now live in essence, a tyranny.

Canada gave up on gun registration

after a few years of trying. Too costly and ineffective! Doubt if our RCMP want to spend time on the USA gun registry when we gave up on ours.

I hope it mostly ends up

I hope it mostly ends up being a lot of window dressing for the loudly emoting gun grabber types, with no real effect otherwise. But I do worry about another false flag, er, mass shooting to provide more impetus for the corporate state media's ongoing brainwashing operation...

What do you want to bet Obama authorizes Royal Canadian Police..

..and Military and Mexican Police and Military to enter the US in a supporting role to help American Pigs confiscate the firearms of Americans?

With 19 executive orders (Wow that is a lot) this has to be a part of it.

I guarantee Obama is working in coordination with foreign police and foreign military to affect this dramatic change in our history.

This approach will fail, it will utterly fail.

As in the past, foreign flags on police and military uniforms operating on US soil will receive a particularly brutal response from patriotic Americans.

It Could Mean Anything

"Executive Actions" may not mean the same thing as "Executive Orders". Perhaps just a political stunt to give the appearance he's doing something. Technically anything he does is an "action", from holding a meeting to flushing the toilet.

Regardless, it's unlikely Biden originated any of the ideas. The script was likely written over a year ago so that all he has to do is read it and repeat it.

A pertinent quote from Cicero

“A nation…cannot survive treason from within…the traitor …wears the face of his victims,…and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation—he works secretly…he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared…….” Cicero, 42 B.C.E.

Thanks!

This just went in my favorite quotes.

"No physical quantity explains it's own existence, and no amount of time can consume an infinite series of events to bring you to the present, which means all of these somewhere have to be explained by one self-existent cause which is not physical."

I agree

With Michael. There is nothing to be gained politically, and in fact a lot to lose, both individually and party collectively. This whole issue could be defused quite simply with an open investigation into the root cause of these mass shootings.
Seems rather the culmination of an ongoing agenda, which the urgency factor would support, and coincide with similer actions in other banned countries, or simply a power play on the part of an egotistical individual/s.

Either way, the outcome of this 'crisis' is going to effect the direction, and the methodology adopted by the political class, that the nation is headed, in a profound and disproportionate manner.

Liberty: Too big to fail

Funny how they even admit

The reason they want these executive orders is because they can't achieve them legally. (AKA.. through congress). Spiers said she wants him to push as much as he can that way? I hope to God we don't let him get away with any of it. Debating it on FOX and CNN for months and complaining how it is unfair will not work. The American people need to throw his unconstitutional E.A.'s out with the garbage. Or maybe we could let him walk and carry them with him.

19

Up to this day the number 19 reminded me of the average age of troops killed in the Vietnam war.

Thesis, Anti-thesis, Synthesis

The feds want to eliminate our rights. If they can't do it outright, they will threaten to do it by illegal methods.

If they see there efforts are too big too fast, they will settle for a little at a time...Thesis, Anti-thesis, Synthesis

Thesis, antithesis, synthesis
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The triad thesis, antithesis, synthesis is often used to describe the thought of German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. Hegel never used the term himself, and almost all of his biographers have been eager to discredit it.

The triad is usually described in the following way:
The thesis is an intellectual proposition.
The antithesis is simply the negation of the thesis, a reaction to the proposition.
The synthesis solves the conflict between the thesis and antithesis by reconciling their common truths, and forming a new proposition

Showcase showdown

Impeachment proceedings in the US Congress is not a trivial matter.

Why on earth is this worth the fight for Obama? Who benefits politically?

His agenda does

You can't take down a Nation like ours and steer it towards NWO without causing divisiveness.. It's a win win for him.. He splits the country, causes possible physical resistance, declares martial law to deal with the "terrorists", which in this soft-bellied conditioned society, pushes more towards his side.. the signs of this are elsewhere as well.

He has hardened up his control over communications, food, transportation and a myriad of other necessities needed to control a population.

There are calls for him to be a dictator everywhere and they've introduced bills that would allow him to stay in power "legally" for the average joe's ignorant consumption.

They've gotten rid of "Posse comitatus".

They've destroyed America's economy, I think, intentionally and if you factor in, everything else I've said and haven't mentioned, the chances that I'm right go up exponentially.

Now, they want to ban guns by illegal means and pass it off as legal.

Seriously, you know it goes on and on, I'm sure.

So what do we do here with no guns? Do we go the route of other Nations that have been subjected for decades to tyrannical rule in peaceful resistance while they pick us off, one by one? While they chase us down through service providers? While they smear us in the news?

Anyone that doesn't see what's coming is sad.

Three things available in my eyes as options..

1: Congress stands up to impeach him and stop this.

2: The military and police around the Nation refuse to follow his actions.

3: Resistance in a physical form by the average joe.

Who are they?

Little green men

Who the fuck do you think "they" are. Don't be ignorant. Yeah I get it.. "just another conspiracy nut".. except it's right in the open so either you're stupid or you're being intentionally dishonest.

You've been round here long enough to know who "they" are when people say that..
