Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein's Proposed 'Assault Weapons' Legislation

The Blaze -- Last week, Sen. Dianne Feinstein promised to on the first day of the new Congress introduce legislation that would ban so-called assault weapons and certain types of ammunition.

Now, the Californian senator has posted a summary of this legislation that would be introduced in 2013, showing more details about the provisions that she would hope would be included. And it doesn’t just have to do with what she calls “assault” weapons.

Here are a few bullet points on the guns that would be banned from sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing:

--120 specifically-named firearms
--Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic
--Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds

Those who have acquired weapons recently under the pretense of being “grandfathered” in under prior laws see mention in Feinstein’s provisions as well. It requires these weapons to be registered under the National Firearms Act that will include collecting the following information:

--Background check of owner and any transferee;
--Type and serial number of the firearm;
--Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
--Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law;
--Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration
In addition, Feinstein proposes banning large-capacity magazines, which for her includes those that can hold more than 10 rounds.

The proposed legislation would protect hunters and existing gun owners’ rights by:

--Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment
--Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes and
--Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons

The legislation also proposes to strength the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and some state bans by forbidding “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons,” among other suggestions. Thumbhole stocks allow for easier more ergonomic grip of the weapon and bullet buttons release an empty magazine quickly to allow the user to pop in a new one, which some have said skirts around existing assault weapon bans.

Check out the legislation’s summary in PDF form here
Blog author's comments - Feinstein's bill is the Democrat's solution to shootings and crime. But, this proposed bill will only penalize the law abiding gun owners. It will not stop the criminals.

This has no doubt been ready and in her filing cabinet for quite a while. Now, after the Newtown, Connecticut shooting, they feel this is the time to attempt to pass it. With this so-called "assault weapons" ban bill they are targeting everything - rifles, shotguns and even handguns. The gun-grabbers are going for broke. If this bill passes it would be the effective end of the Second Amendment in America.

We shall see how many members of Congress vote for the proposed bill. Perhaps if Congress stops it, Obama will use an Executive Order to make it law. I knew he would go after guns but he was hesitant to do so during his first term. I don't believe what Feinstein's bill proposes is constitutional.

The bill requires all gun owners to register their guns. The Democrats would soon impose a yearly tax on each gun. The Obama administration wants more control of our lives from health care, taxes and now our Second Amendment rights.

Progressive Solutions

Blog author's comments - Progressives believe there isn't a single "illegal alien" in the entire country. They are called "undocumented immigrants." Obama will find a way to give the illegals amnesty and eventually citizenship so they can of course vote for the Democratic Party.

Progressives want gun control. Barack Obama, Eric Holder and other Democrats don't just want more gun control laws; they would like to abolish our right to bear arms. The Democrats will continue to chip away at our Second Amendment rights. The gun ban Obama wants to put in place will only disarm the law abiding citizens.

The left which includes the mainstream media will continue to blame the NRA for the latest mass shooting at the Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut by a mentally disturbed person. I do not see them condemn the shooter or the fact that he should have been institutionalized nearly as much as they are focusing their sights on the NRA. Because the goal of the NRA is to protect our Second Amendment rights, the left are committed to discrediting and destroying them.

NY Gov. Talking Gun Control: 'Confiscation Could Be An Option'

The Blaze -- Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that all options, including confiscation and “mandatory sales to the state,” would be on the table next month when the New York State Legislature debates new gun control measures. The comments were specifically aimed at what might happen should stricter rules be imposed on “assault” weapons and high-capacity magazines.

The governor said he plans on proposing a package of gun legislation in his State of the State address on Jan. 9.

“There’s a big difference of opinion on these issues,” Gov. Cuomo said today during a radio interview with Albany’s WGDJ-AM.

Mr. Cuomo explained that because gun control hasn’t been a recent topic of discussion in the capital, he has chosen to reach out to lawmakers to see where they stand on the issue before he submits his final proposal.
Blog author's comments - I do not think Democrat Governor Cuomo will be able to confiscate guns and use "mandatory sales to the state." He and Obama are using the tragic shooting at the Newtown, Connecticut school to gather support for their anti-gun agenda.

This is not to say that Barack Obama will not push hard for a ban on 'assault rifles', high capacity magazines and the closing of what is referred to as gun show loop holes. The liberals will continue to chip away at our Second Amendment rights.

Anyone who was paying attention had to know that Obama would focus on gun control if he won a a second term in office. New York's liberal Gov. Cuomo is following along with his anti-gun agenda.

Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association suggested the creation of the National School Shield Program which would put armed security officers in every school. He also said "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." I agree with Mr. LaPierre.

Obama And The Second Amendment

Blog author's comments - I have had no doubt since Barack Obama was elected president in 2008 that gun control was on his agenda. He, of course, did not touch it during his first term because he wanted to be reelected and even many Democrats did not want him attempting to remove any of the Second Amendment rights.

But since he has been given another four years in office I was certain he would do something concerning gun control. The tragedy last week at the Newtown, Connecticut school has presented him and other anti-gun Democrats with an opportunity to perhaps put many restrictions on our current rights. The Democrats never let a crisis go to waste.

Via Rasmussen Reports - Poll: By a 48% to 27% Margin Americans Think Action To Treat Mental Illness Will Do More To Stop Another Mass Shooting Than Gun Control Legislation

Americans want something done following the horrific news from Sandy Hook Elementary School last week, and a plurality believes a greater emphasis on mental health issues will be the most effective way to prevent such tragedies.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 48% of Americans believe more action to treat mental health issues will do the most to prevent incidents like last Friday’s school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. Twenty-seven percent (27%) think stricter gun control laws will do the most to prevent such shootings, while 15% put the emphasis on limits on violent movies and video games. Ten percent (10%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, (click here.)

N.Y. City Mayor Bloomberg: "I Don't Know What The Gun Would Have Done"

Hot Air -- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who politicized the Sandy Hook tragedy within hours last Friday, just wrapped up a press conference announcing new plans to fight gun violence and to counter the National Rifle Association with his own Super PAC.

Bloomberg was asked by a reporter to respond to Rep. Louie Gohmert’s comments over the weekend that he wished the principal of the school, who died trying to take down shooter Adam Lanza, had a gun. Bloomberg responded by saying, “There are dumb statements and then there are stupid statements...I don’t know what the gun would have done.”
Blog author's comments - That's right, there are stupid statements, and his definitely was one. Mayor Bloomberg...ask your armed body guards what the principal of the school with a gun might have done to stop the shooter and the killings.

He no doubt believes more gun laws are required which will only remove the rights of the law abiding gun owners but would not have stopped this tragedy. Anything less than a complete ban on guns is not going to satisfy some of the hard core anti-gun people.

MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Plays Race Card After Susan Rice Bows Out

Washington Post -- U.N. Ambassador Susan E. Rice withdrew her name as President Obama’s leading candidate for secretary of state, saying the administration could not afford a “lengthy, disruptive and costly” confirmation fight over statements she made about the extremist attack in Libya that killed four Americans.

Rice called Obama before sending him a letter officially withdrawing from consideration. Rice said in an interview that she had concluded early this week that what she and Obama considered “unfair and misleading” charges against her over the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya, would impede the president’s second-term agenda.

“This was my decision,” Rice said. When asked if Obama had tried to dissuade her, she said that he “understood that this was the right decision, and that I made it for the right reasons.”

Blog author's comments - What Andrea Mitchell said does not surprise me. Obama sent Susan Rice around to the Sunday talk shows with information provided by his administration, to push the story they were trying to sell and cover for his failure to do what he should have prior to and during the Benghazi terrorist attack.

Did Susan Rice know that what she said about the Benghazi attack was untrue or was she unaware of the actual facts? To say that Susan Rice withdrew herself from consideration as the next Secretary of State was because of pressure from the Republican Party and had anything to do that she is a "woman of color" is typical of a liberal. They continually play the race card.

RFK Jr. - Fox News Has Divided Country In A Way Not Seen Since Civil War

The Blaze -- During a discussion on HuffPost Live Friday, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. gave a strong condemnation of what he calls the “right wing media” and particularly Fox News.

“It’s divided our country in a way that we haven’t been divided probably since the Civil War,” Kennedy said of Fox News during the discussion focused on fracking. “Its empowered large corporations to get certain kinds of politicians and ideologues who are in the United State Congress elected — the Tea Party ideologues who control the Republican Party.”

The nephew of President John F. Kennedy and son of former senator and presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy made these claims against Fox while describing what he sees as the two biggest problems in American politics: the influence of big money and “the right-wing control of the American media.”

In addition to Fox News, Kennedy criticized right-wing talk radio that he describes as having a negative and large influence on whole sections of the country.

“Ninety-five percent of talk radio in our country is right-wing, and you need, according to Pew survey, and you–so a whole section of our country that that’s what they’re hearing. They wake up in the morning, when they go to bed at night,” Kennedy said.

Kennedy also claimed that Republicans “are the only ones that have their own (TV) network.”

Blog author's comments - Does Kennedy have any idea what he is talking about? I don't think so. I can understand that being a Kennedy and surrounded by fellow liberal elitists can lead to a complete misunderstanding of reality.

From the news and videos I see - ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and MSNBC are the networks which have helped Obama 'divide the country' and helped the low information voters reelect Obama. But according to Kennedy the two biggest problems in American politics are the influence of big money and “the right-wing control of the American media.”

We have Barack Obama who is the worst president in our history and what he has planned for his second term will continue to damage the country. And Kennedy is attacking FOX News, the only news channel that does not always agree with Obama and the Democratic Party. Of course many on the left will believe what Kennedy said.

Attack On Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941 - Honoring All Who Served & Died

The attack caught America by surprise. Two waves of military planes struck, the first hitting it's projected targets just before 8am and the second hitting an hour later. A little before 10am it was over and Japanese planes headed home in the early afternoon. It was hoped by the Japanese that the attacks would extinguish any ability the Americans had to propel sea and air power in the Pacific for at least half a year. The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 remains an American tragedy that was a catalyst for WWII.

NBC's Bob Costas On Sunday Night Football With Gun Control Lecture

The Blaze -- Discussing the shocking murder-suicide that rocked the NFL over the weekend, when Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher fatally shot his girlfriend and then committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager, Costas argued that domestic disputes are more likely to end in such a fashion if the government does not limit people’s access to firearms.

Costas said: Writer Jason Whitlock, with whom I do not always agree but today said it so well that we may as well just quote or paraphrase from the end of his article.

Our current gun culture, Whitlock wrote, ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.’

Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.

In the coming days, Jovan Belcher’s actions and their possible connection to football will be analyzed. Who knows? But here, wrote Jason Whitlock, is what I believe: If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

Blog author's comments - From listening to Bob Costas over the years what he said does not surprise me. He was able to give us his opinion because it's probably also what his employer thinks. I know it's what the left believes.

The writer Costas quotes said - "If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today." Belcher was clearly irrational when he killed his girl friend and took his own life. They also had a child which Belcher was not thinking about.

There will be some people who think because Jovan Belcher played professional football and may have had concussions...that this could have contributed to what he did. I obviously don't know the answer as to why Jovan Belcher did this. But I do know it is wrong to blame our Second Amendment and pass more gun control laws.

According to the Cato Institute -- States that allow registered citizens to carry concealed weapons have lower crime rates than those that don't. The 31 states that have "shall issue" laws allowing private citizens to carry concealed weapons have, on average, a 24 percent lower violent crime rate, a 19 percent lower murder rate and a 39 percent lower robbery rate than states that forbid concealed weapons. In fact, the nine states with the lowest violent crime rates are all right-to-carry states. Remarkably, guns are used for self-defense more than 2 million times a year, three to five times the estimated number of violent crimes committed with guns.

President Obama - This Is Why Taxing The Rich Won't Work

Blog author's comments - This is a good and informative video but unfortunately facts, figures, common sense and logic do not work on the political left. They continually use class warfare.

The proposals from the White House – the first to use hard numbers – include a $1.6 trillion tax increase, a $50 billion stimulus package and new presidential powers to raise the federal debt limit without congressional approval.

What was presented is proof that Obama actually wants to go over the fiscal he can call a press conference and blame the Republicans for not bargaining with him.

Obama 'Is Not Particularly Concerned' Susan Rice Misled American People

Weekly Standard -- In response to a question from reporter Major Garrett on whether the Obama administration's mishandling of Benghazi raises "core questions of basic competency," press secretary Jay Carney revealed that Barack Obama "is not particularly concerned" about whether Susan Rice misled the American people:

"What the president is worried about, Major, is what happened and why in Benghazi. He is not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or I went out and talked about the fact that we believed extremists might have been responsible. And whether we named them as al Qaeda or not does not--no, it certainly doesn't have any bearing on what happened and who was responsible as that investigation was continuing on Benghazi."

Blog author's comments - Barack Obama also doesn't appear to be "particularly concerned" that four Americans were murdered by terrorists in Libya on sovereign U.S. soil. Anyone who has followed what happened is aware that the U.S. ambassador, Christopher Stevens, had asked for more security but did not receive it. We also know the attack was not caused by a 'You Tube' video that ridicules Islam's Prophet Muhammad, made by an American citizen. Al Qaeda planned this attack to occur on the anniversary of 9/11.

Obama and others had the chance to help the Americans during the Benghazi attack but did nothing. We have a dead ambassador, we have three other dead Americans, and in the midst of this attack does anyone know where the president was? Why wasn't there orders for help given?

Did Obama expect us to believe that after Osama bin Laden was killed by the Navy SEAL Team 6, that al Qaeda was now much weaker as a terrorist threat? I do not think that bin Laden had been a factor in any actions taken by al Qaeda for years.

Many members of the mainstream media do not care about what happened, the Obama administration does not seem to care enough to take responsibility for their lack of support, but worst of all the people who elected Obama to a second term apparently do not care either.

I believe Obama will nominate Susan Rice as the next Secretary of State and she will be appointed. She did the job which was asked of her and appeared on all the Sunday talk shows using the talking points provided for her, to attempt to cover for Obama's lack of leadership as president.

Disagreeing With Obama Can Ruin Christmas, Says White House Report

Daily Caller -- Any Republican refusal to accept President Barack Obama’s fiscal plan may ruin Christmas for the nation’s retailers, the White House claimed in a report released Monday morning.

“The National Retail Federation is forecasting that holiday sales will grow 4.1 percent this year … [but] if Congress does not act on the President’s plan to extend tax cuts for the middle-class, it will be risking one of the key contributors to growth and jobs in our economy at the most important time of the year for retail stores,” says the report, which was prepared by the Obama White House’s National Economic Council and the president’s Council of Economic Advisers.

“The holiday season is no time to threaten middle-class pocketbooks,” urges the report, titled “The Middle-Class Tax Cuts’ Impact On Consumer Spending & Retailers.”
Blog author's comments - The only thing this administration can do to spur Christmas sales is a mass resignation. That would spread joy around much of the country. Christmas really means nothing to them anyway, they're just looking for an excuse to blame the Republican Party for the stagnant economy and recession, which we've never come out of and won't...not as long as Obama is the president.

Obama is using the extension of the Bush tax cuts to force the rest of his fiscal plan, whatever he decides that will be, on the Republican Party. If anyone believes only the wealthy are going to be hit by what's coming, think again. The fiscal cliff is going to drag everyone else down with it. But now, it's pass my plan or Republicans will ruin Christmas. What is difficult to understand is that the majority of voters supported him and believes what he says.

Atheists Cry Foul Over 'A Charlie Brown Christmas'

Daily Caller -- Charlie Brown’s Christmas is on the outs at an elementary school in Little Rock, Ark. — at least among atheists who are calling foul over a planned student trip to see a stage production of the beloved Peanuts story.

The trouble began when students at Terry Elementary School brought home letters detailing the trip to see “A Charlie Brown Christmas” at a local church, according to a report from Arkansas’ KARK. A parent who had a problem with the play’s content notified the local atheist group of the field trip.

“We’re not saying anything bad about Charlie Brown,” Anne Orsi, vice president of the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers, told KARK. “The problem is that it’s got religious content and it’s being performed in a religious venue and that doesn’t just blur the line between church and state, it oversteps it entirely.”

"A Charlie Brown Christmas“ is about the title character’s struggle to overcome the holiday’s commercialism and embrace the true meaning of Christmas. The holiday classic culminates with the character Linus quoting from the second chapter of Luke.

While students can opt out, the parent whistle blower who preferred to remain unnamed told KARK that she is letting her child go because she does not want her child to be bullied.

The church, Agape, told KARK that they have offered other family friendly shows to students in the past without issue and the Little Rock School district said that they do not endorse any religion.
Blog author's comments - It does not bother me what atheists believe. What does bother me is that some of them try to force their beliefs on the Christians in our country.

The parent is going to let the child attend the school trip but felt it was their duty to inform the 'Arkansas Society of Freethinkers' which is a group that supports atheists and agnostics. I suppose the parent fears that their child’s attendance at this stage production could be a bad thing because the child may actually enjoy the Charlie Brown Christmas story.

The vice president of the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers, said “the problem is that it’s got religious content and it’s being performed in a religious venue and that doesn’t just blur the line between church and state, it oversteps it entirely.” I believe that a large tent could be set up on the school grounds for the play and they would still have a problem with it.

We had thousands of abortions in our country this year, 23 million people are unemployed, 47 million are on food stamps, and we have a $16 trillion deficit, an incompetent government led by an economically illiterate president and his administration. And this is the burning issue of the day for these atheists that I would guess are also liberals? I think the goal of the parent and the 'Arkansas Society of Freethinkers' is to have the school trip canceled for all the children.

NLRB Sues to Reinstate Union Saboteurs at Nursing Homes

Washington Examiner -- President Obama’s National Labor Relations Board asked a judge this week to force a Connecticut nursing home to re-hire employees involved in a labor dispute, including the workers who sabotaged patient homes as they went on strike.

The Service Employees International Union members who worked at HealthBridge went on strike after rejecting the company’s final offer in contract negotiations. HealthBridge cut benefits, pensions, and raises wages 2.2 percent.

“The [NLRB] says those unilateral changes were illegal, and wants the judge to reset the clock so that the union members can continue to work under the terms of the expired contract and continue to negotiate for a new agreement,” The Hartford Courant reports.

That includes the union members who committed acts of sabotage on the way out the door which exploited the weakness of the Alzheimer’s patients in the nursing home in order to make it more difficult for those patients to receive care from the replacement workers. As The Washington Examiner previously noted:

The director of the facility in Newington, Conn., told police that “the name tags on the patients’ doors for the Alzheimer’s ward were mixed up. The photos attached to the medical records for these patients were removed, further complicating, but not making impossible, the identification of the patients. Also, dietary blue stickers affixed to the door name tags were removed.” Some medical equipment also went missing.

Entire column...
Blog author's comments - The relatives who have family in the nursing home affected by the union should get together and sue the SEIU employees. The union people should have been arrested for putting the patients' lives in danger, but the Obama government is trying to get their jobs back.

Obama’s NLRB asked a judge this week to force the nursing home to re-hire employees involved in the labor dispute. This is the kind of thing we can expect from the corrupt administration which the majority of the people in this country voted for. Obama will protect the unions because of their support and money which helped him win a second term.

Examiner Editorial: If a nursing home bears the union label, look elsewhere.

Arizona Gun Store - No Obama Voters Allowed

TPM -- A gun shop in Arizona has a clear message to would-be customers who happened to vote for President Barack Obama: take your business elsewhere.

Southwest Shooting Authority in Pinetop, Ariz. took out an advertisement last week in the local newspaper, the White Mountain Independent, that spelled out the store's new policy in explicit terms.

"If you voted for Barack Obama your business is not welcome at Southwest Shooting Authority," the ad reads. "You have proven that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm."

A sign on the store's front door contains a similar message. Cope Reynolds, the owner of the Southwest Shooting Authority, posted a letter on the website AmmoLand shortly after the election last week to explain his motives, writing that his personal convictions trump profit:

To Whom it May Concern:

I thought you all might be interested in this.

We will try to demonstrate once again that the bottom line for our business is principle, not money.

Yes, it has been damaging at times but our values are intact.

Effective immediately, if you voted for Obama, your money is no good here. You have proven beyond a doubt that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm. We have just put a sign up on the front door to save you the trouble of walking all the way in here...

I took this ad out in our local paper. It will come out in the White Mountain Independent tomorrow, 9 November.

Cope Reynolds
Blog author's comments - Of course the gun shop owner does not know who voted for Obama. But, he has sent a strong message showing what he thinks of Barack Obama and anyone who would vote for him. The shop owner, Mr. Reynolds, doesn't need the Obama voters business. Since Obama's re-election guns and ammunition have been flying off the shelf.

I don't think the owner will lose many customers. I doubt that many Obama supporters buy guns, they trust the government to protect them. Also, if they had their way no one would be allowed to purchase and carry a gun. The shop owner's statement to the Obama voters is quite true. "You have proven that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm."

Obama Vows Climate Efforts But Stays Vague on Agenda

The Hill -- President Obama on Wednesday vowed new efforts to tackle global warming during his second term but offered no concrete agenda to expand on current administration policies to address what he called a major threat.[...]

Obama touted existing administration policies he said are helping to curb emissions. They include major increases in vehicle mileage standards that have already been finalized for model years through 2025, and administration aid for green power projects.

But he said that plans for second-term policies remain a work in progress. “We have not done as much as we need to,” Obama said.[...]

“What I am going to be doing over the next several weeks, the next several months, is ... having a wide-ranging conversation with scientists, engineers and elected officials to find out what more can we do to making short-term progress in reducing carbon and then working through an education process that I think is necessary, a discussion, a conversation across the country about what realistically can we do long-term to make sure that this is not something we are passing on to future generations that is going to be very expensive and very painful to deal with,” Obama said.[...]

“I am a firm believer that climate change is real, that it is impacted by human behavior, and carbon emissions, and as a consequence, I think we’ve got an obligation to future generations to do something about it,” Obama said.

Entire column...

Blog author's comments - The Earth was here long before us, it will be here long after we are gone. The temperature has always changed and will continue to change. To think that humans would be able to take any deliberate actions that would control something as massive and complex as climate is extremely arrogant.

President Obama is obviously a global warming believer. He has thrown so much money down the drain with loans to green energy companies and many have already gone bankrupt. The Chevy 'Volt' is another Obama boondoggle.

Of course I am interested in new sources of energy but most of it will be for future use. At present what drives our country and economy is oil and natural gas. But, green energy is what Obama apparently wants to concentrate on and invest in.

The Wall Street Journal reported the Antarctic sees record growth in sea ice. (see video)

Politico -- Florida GOP Rep. Allen West, who is stubbornly refusing to concede to his Democratic challenger, has something to look forward to if he gives up: an invitation to run for office in Georgia.

“I would be glad to have [West] come back to Georgia and at some point run here,” Georgia GOP chairwoman Sue Everhart told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I would certainly try to help him because he has done his job. The way he ran his race didn’t in any way interfere with the job he did. He ran as a Republican, a conservative Republican.”

The oft-controversial West is refusing to concede to Democrat Patrick Murphy, even as Murphy attends Congressional orientation events on Tuesday. West is threatening to tie up the election results for months with legal challenges. Murphy leads West by about 2,000 votes out of more than 300,000 cast.

Everhart called West, who was born and raised in Atlanta, “one of the finest congressmen this country’s ever had.”
Blog author's comments - It really is too bad that more members of Congress are not like Allen West. I believe there was voter fraud by the Democrats to defeat him. The Obama administration and Democratic Party wanted to be rid of West.

He was a thorn in their side, spoke for the conservatives and told the truth about Obama and what he and his party are doing to the country. It would be a real loss to the Republican Party if Allen West is not in politics in some capacity. Of course he has not yet conceded the election in Florida.

Romney Got Zero Votes in 59 Philadelphia Voting Divisions

News Busters -- How can this possibly be?

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Mitt Romney on Tuesday received ZERO votes in 59 Philadelphia voting divisions! ZERO!

It's one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote. Zero. Zilch. [...]

Most big cities are politically homogeneous, with 75 percent to 80 percent of voters identifying as Democrats.

As you might imagine, this is impossible.

But don't try to tell liberal media members that voter fraud is real.
Blog author's comments - I'm sure that the fraud was widespread, and that Philadelphia was just one of the more obvious places. No matter how liberal Philadelphia is, someone is going to vote for a Republican out of that many polling stations even if it was by mistake.

Romney also received zero votes in nine Cleveland, Ohio precincts. Was there ever any real belief that Obama's people would conduct an honest election?

Also, Red State reported -- A review of voter registration data for ten counties in Colorado details a pattern of voter bloat inflating registration rolls to numbers larger than the total voting age population. Using publicly available voter data and comparing it to U.S. Census records, reveals the ten counties having a total registration ranging between 104 to 140 percent of the respective populations.

Is This Why Barack Obama Was Reelected President?

Apparently the majority of people in the United States voted for Barack Obama for president because they thought he did such a good job during his first term in office.

They must believe that Socialized medicine, Obamacare, is good for the country even though it will cost more and put the government in control of our health care while removing the best health care system in the world.

That Obama taking no action against the planned attack by terrorists on the Benghazi consulate and the murder of four Americans was nothing for those voters to be concerned about. The truth and facts about this were hidden for days, while the Obama administration told us that the attack in Libya was not a planned attack but a protest because of a movie on 'You Tube' made by an American citizen.

The same can be said about the Obama administration's scheme 'Fast and Furious' where guns were allowed to 'walk' into Mexico to the drug cartels and many lives were lost because of this. The documents concerning this scheme are not available because the president has locked them away.

Obama tells us that Al-Qaeda has been defeated and I guess many believe him. Also, they must think his 'Arab Spring' was a foreign policy success which involved the removal of the dictators in Libya and Egypt. But now Egypt is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood and the terrorist attack on the consulate took place in Benghazi Libya.

That trillion dollar deficits are okay as is 46 million people on food stamps. That 8 percent or higher unemployment will now be the normal. And, birth control and abortions should be free.

Many voters believe that those who are considered wealthy by the government should have to pay more taxes to help those who refuse to get an education and a job, but continue to receive their government checks funded by the taxpayers for doing nothing.

A large number of his voters also feel it is racist to question the policies and agenda of Barack Obama because he is a black man.

Many of these voters, I assume, also believe whatever they see and hear from the mainstream media because they are 'professional journalists' and would never attempt to cover up the true facts which could make Obama appear inept at his job.

That the terrible economy is not the fault of the Obama administration but only because George W. Bush left them with such a 'mess', even though the country is in much worse shape now than when Bush left office.

Those who voted for Barack Obama must also believe that if he eventually succeeds in making the illegals in our country citizens, which will allow them to vote, is okay even though many more people will be cared for by the government and these new citizens will vote for the candidates of the Democratic Party.

That Obama will also be able to appoint at least two more Supreme Court Justices which will give them a liberal majority who will not judge or rule their cases according to the Constitution because they do not believe in it and would like to change it.

I could go on but is this why Barack Obama was reelected president? Apparently the people who voted to give him another term in office either agree with all of the above and want this to continue or perhaps were not aware of what he has done or did not fully understand it. But, they have given him much more time to do even more harm to the country. Because Barack Obama will be the president for another four years America may now be changed forever.

Massachusetts Mayor Bans The Word 'Illegal' For Illegal Immigrants

CNS News -- The mayor of Somerville, Mass., has banned the use of the term “illegals” when referring to illegal aliens.

Mayor and Alderman Joe Curtatone announced the new policy at a local board meeting last week, according to the Somerville Journal.

The decision was made after a “team of youths” urged the city to stop using the “hurtful” term. “I hadn’t given it a thought until they brought to my attention how hurtful that term is,” Board President Tom Taylor said. “Some of their testimony is pretty heart wrenching.”

One testimony came from Elis Melara, a 14-year-old whose cousin was deported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) last year. “The way he said those words made me angry,” she said, referencing the word illegal.

“The officer made him seem like a criminal. He was talking about my cousin like he didn’t matter. He matters to me,” Melara said. “The word ‘illegal’ is a wrong way to describe a human being. A better word is ‘undocumented.’ I am thankful that I am an American and can do something about it.”

Curtatone, who is serving his fifth term as mayor since being elected in 2003, said his community has “always been a city of hope for immigrants around the world.”

“We made it clear here that whatever your status is, wherever you’re from, we are your mayor, we’re your aldermen, this is your city and we’re here to service you,” he said. “Anyone who wants to be a part of this city is welcome here.”

Somerville, which is just north of Cambridge, has a population of 76,519 people. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). Massachusetts has an estimated illegal immigrant population of 190,000 as of 2010.
Blog author's comments - "The mayor of Somerville, Mass., has banned the use of the term “illegals”." So, what is their penalty for someone who uses this term? This is simply more liberal 'political correctness'. Breaking our laws by being in the United States illegally is a crime and the person an "illegal".

Barack Obama and his administration welcome the illegals. I believe that one of Obama's priorities if he should win a second term is to find a way to grant all illegals amnesty and make them U.S. citizens. Most of them would then vote for the candidates of the Democratic Party.

New Ad Calls For Obama To 'Come Clean' On Benghazi

When They Called; President Obama Failed on Benghazi

Women United PAC -- New York, NY, October 30, 2012 — Today, Women United launches “When They Called,” which addresses President Obama’s failure of leadership in his highest duty, that of commander in chief. Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were abandoned by their commander in chief, who took credit for the SEAL operation that killed Bin Laden and made it a centerpiece of his political campaign, but who repeatedly stood before the cameras after the Benghazi attack and blamed the deaths of heroic Navy SEALs on a video that insulted Islam.

--We now know that the White House was monitoring the attack and was aware of events as they unfolded in Benghazi in real time.

--We now know that, in fact, the White House was told within two hours after the attack began that it was pre-planned, and carried out by heavily armed Islamist militia groups who publicly took credit for the attack.

--We now know that, over a period of seven agonizing hours, as the attack continued, our people on the ground pleaded desperately for help and were repeatedly denied. We don’t expect a perfect president, but we demand an honest one. We expect a president who will step up, make the tough decisions, and take responsibility. When it comes to the Benghazi massacre, President Obama has failed by every measure.

It is in times of crisis, usually after lives have been lost, when the paramount importance of national security is brought home to the American people. We know—as the mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of the men and women who volunteer to serve in harm’s way—that their security and the security of our country depends on clear-eyed, unfaltering leadership.

Today, we release “When They Called,” as a demand for President Obama to come clean with the American people, and as a call for Americans to rise up and elect a new commander in chief.

Blog author's comments - The 'transparent' Obama seems to have disappeared. He pledged to have the most transparent administration in U.S. history. He and his administration are covering up what happened in Benghazi. He did the same with 'Fast and Furious' and many other issues during hopefully his only term as president.

When he became president Barack Obama said: "My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government."

How did that work out for America? We have had enough, we cannot withstand four more years of Barack Obama and his administration.

Via the The Blaze -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Tuesday a U.S. senator told him that at least two news networks have emails from the White House ordering a counterterrorism team to stand down on a rescue mission at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

“There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down,” Gingrich told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “They were a group in real-time trying to mobilize Marines and C-130s and the fighter aircraft, and they were told explicitly by the White House ‘stand down and do nothing. This is not a terrorist action."

He continued, “If that’s true, and I’ve been told this by a fairly reliable U.S. senator, if that’s true and that comes out in the next day or two, I think it raises enormous questions about the president’s role, Tom Donilon, the National Security Adviser’s role, the Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who has taken it on his own shoulders, that he said don't go. And I think that’s very dubious, given that the president said he had instructions they are supposed to do everything they could to secure American personnel."

Gingrich said if accurate, it leaves two conclusions: that the the secretary of defense usurped the commander in chief or that Obama never gave the order.

“I think you are going to see this come back tomorrow and the next day,” he said.

Gingrich said he thinks Benghazi will be “enormous in terms of the election,” saying that he’s been to multiple places where voters want to know what happened.

Obama: Second Term Would Be 'Mandate' For Cuts, Tax Increases

Washington Times -- President Obama said in an interview aired Monday that his first priority if re-elected would be to push for passage of a debt-reduction plan to cut spending and raise taxes on the nation's highest earners.

Appearing in a taped interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Mr. Obama predicted that Congress can approve a plan to reduce the country's debt and deficit as soon as during a lame-duck session later this year, or in the early months of next year.

"If we won, then I believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way," he said in the interview, which was taped Saturday at a campaign stop in Nashua, N.H. "We can do some more cuts, we could look at how we deal with the health care costs in particular under Medicaid and Medicare in a serious way, but we are also going to need some revenue."

The president also reflected on the close of his final political campaign and last month's consulate attack in Libya, in addition to laying out some of his goals for a possible second term.

He said that cutting the debt and deficit would go a long way toward clearing the "ideological underbrush" between Democrats and Republicans, and that an agreement between the parties also would give them an impetus to move on to other pressing issues, including national infrastructure improvement and immigration reform.

"If we get [the debt and deficit] done, then immigration reform, I think, is there to get done," he said. "And I think [the Republican Party] is going to need to get it done because you can't continue to alienate the fastest-growing segment of the country. And it's the right thing to do."
Blog author's comments - If he is reelected, Barack Obama will not focus on 'debt-reduction' he has shown us this during the past four years. He will not cut spending. He will however do all that he can to raise taxes not only on the wealthy but also the middle class taxpayers.

Obama mentioned 'immigration reform.' Does he want to close our borders to illegals and only allow immigrants to become citizens by following the laws which are already in place? I don't think so. He sees illegal immigrants as future Democratic Party voters and he will work towards a plan to give them citizenship.

The truth is the United States cannot withstand four more years with Obama as president. The country would never recover from what he and his administration will do. The election of 2012 is a must win for the Republican Party and all people who care about our country.

Mitt Romney has a good chance to win the White House. Hopefully the GOP will continue to control the House. The Republican Party also needs to gain control of the Senate, this will be difficult but it can be done.

Without the Presidency, the House and Senate the Republican Party cannot repeal Obamacare and all the taxes this law will bring when it is fully implemented. More importantly...I and many other people do not want the government in control of our health care.

This is why I have lost all respect for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts. He had the deciding vote to remove the Obamacare law and he did not do it.

Clinton Asked For More Security in Benghazi, Obama Said No

Fox News -- Last night, it was revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had ordered more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi before it was attacked where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered by Al-Qaeda but President Obama denied the request.

The news broke on TheBlazeTV’s “Wilkow!” hosted by Andrew Wilkow, by best-selling author, Ed Klein who said the legal counsel to Clinton had informed him of this information.

Klein also said that those same sources said that former President Bill Clinton has been “urging” his wife [Hillary] to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya, which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.

Blog author's comments - If this is true I don't believe Hillary Clinton will release the official State Department documents. Not this close to the election. Obama did not take the action he should have either before or during the terrorist attack.

Libya and Egypt were supposed to be two of Obama's successful foreign policy accomplishments, bringing democracy to both countries. Now Egypt is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood and in Libya a terrorist attack and the murder of four Americans.

The Obama administration ignored warnings of a dangerous situation in Libya and as a result there was not the security there should have been.

The former head of a Special Forces "Site Security Team" in Libya, Lt. Col. Andy Wood has said that in spite of multiple pleas from himself and other U.S. security officials on the ground for "more, not less" security personnel, as many as 34 people were removed from the country in the six months before the attack.

Wood said he found out that his own 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force were being pulled from Libya in August about a month before the assault in Benghazi.

Also, Obama did not send troops or planes into Libya during the attack because he wants no American show of force. He put his campaign and chance for reelection ahead of doing what a leader and president of the United States should have done. This does not surprise me.

Just imagine if this were Reagan or Bush, the long knives of all the media would have been out long ago, but not for Obama, not now, not ever.

CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say.

NYT's Cooper: Death Of Americans - Peripheral To What's Going On Now

News Busters -- President Obama got himself in trouble last week for saying that the death of four Americans in Libya "is not optimal."

On Sunday, New York Times White House correspondent Helene Cooper said on NBC's Meet the Press, "The death of four Americans, which is why while incredibly tragic, is something that I think is peripheral to what's going on right now."(video followed by transcript)

HELENE COOPER, NEW YORK TIMES: I think as an American, you have to look at the, the question of embassy security is one that is definitely, you know, should be looked at. The administration has to study that. But the larger issue is the issue of the Arab spring and what's happening in this key area, a key region for American foreign policy. And that's where you're seeing in Libya, in Egypt, in Yemen and all over this region, you have new governments in place, you have democracy for the first time and the mess that comes with it.

And I think Americans need to be, I think Tom's point is excellent about the response of the Libyan people. I think in the Egypt case, you didn't see quite the same response, and I think that's very worrying for the United States and for the administration. But I think the far larger point is that we're right now in the middle of, the region is in the middle of such turmoil. And we’re not, we don't seem to be addressing it in any meaningful way. Instead, we're like, we’re talking about, you know, the death of four Americans, which is why while incredibly tragic, is something that I think is peripheral to what's going on right now.

Pat Smith, the mother of one of the Americans that died in the Benghazi raid, responded to the President's callous remarks Friday by saying, "My son is NOT very optimal...he is very dead."

I wonder how she'll feel about Cooper claiming his death is "peripheral."

Blog author's comments - "Peripheral" - what a disgusting term applied to the deaths of the four Americans. So Ms. Cooper believes what happened at the Benghazi embassy is of minor relevance or importance? I'd like to see her say that to the families of those who were murdered. And she also believes Obama's Arab Spring was such a success in Libya by giving them democracy. This is simply more cover for the Obama administration by the mainstream media which of course is doing all that they can to help reelect Obama to a second term.

Via Fox Nation: A U.S. Drone watched the Libya attack unfold but Washington did nothing. The United States had an unmanned Predator drone over its consulate in Benghazi during the attack that slaughtered four Americans — which should have led to a quicker military response, it was revealed yesterday.

“They stood, and they watched, and our people died,” former CIA commander Gary Berntsen told CBS News. The network reported that the drone and other reconnaissance aircraft observed the final hours of the hours-long siege on Sept. 11 — obtaining information that should have spurred swift action.

But as Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three colleagues were killed by terrorists the Defense Department officials were too slow to send in the troops, Berntsen said. “They made zero adjustments in this. You find a way to make this happen,” he fumed. “There isn’t a plan for every single engagement. Sometimes you have to be able to make adjustments.”
