Secretary of State John Kerry Expected to Sign a UN Arms Trade Treaty Opposed by the Senate and NRA … Treaty Requires Nations to “Establish & Maintain a National Control System,” Including a “National Control List”
Barack Obama’s end run around the US Constitution and the Second Amendment … Secretary of State to sign United Nations Arms treaty that would circumvent Constitution.
Another Obamaination … As reported at The Hill, Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to sign a UN treaty that is strongly opposed by the US Senate and the NRA. A State Department official said the treaty would “reduce the risk that international transfers of conventional arms will be used to carry out the world’s worst crimes,” while protecting gun rights. However, not so fast. If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is. Just like every idea that stats out with good intentions, there is always a catch. There is a reason why Republicans, the Senate and the NRA are opposed to this end around of the Second Amendment. Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) says, “This treaty is already dead in the water in the Senate, and they know it.” Thankfully, these types of treaties require Senate ratification by elected officials of “We the People” rather than Obama giving away Our rights to the United Nations.
Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to sign an arms trade treaty opposed by the Senate and the gun lobby as early as Wednesday, and Republicans aren’t happy about it.
Kerry’s plan to sign the treaty on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York this week has sparked immediate criticism from GOP opponents.
“This treaty is already dead in the water in the Senate, and they know it,” said Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services. “The Administration is wasting precious time trying to sign away our laws to the global community and unelected U.N. bureaucrats.”
A majority of Senate oppose the treaty because it covers small arms, making ratification impossible in the short term.
When is an arms treaty, not an arms treaty … when it is a front to bypass the US Constitution of course. So what is really is in this treaty that pro-Second Amendment folks are extremely worried about? As reported at the WSJ, ‘Obama’s United Nations Backdoor to Gun Control’.
But the new treaty also demands domestic regulation of “small arms and light weapons.” The treaty’s Article 5 requires nations to “establish and maintain a national control system,” including a “national control list.” Article 10 requires signatories “to regulate brokering” of conventional arms. The treaty offers no guarantee for individual rights, but instead only declares it is “mindful” of the “legitimate trade and lawful ownership” of arms for”recreational, cultural, historical, and sporting activities.” Not a word about the right to possess guns for a broader individual right of self-defense.
Gun-control advocates will use these provisions to argue that the U.S. must enact measures such as a national gun registry, licenses for guns and ammunition sales, universal background checks, and even a ban of certain weapons. The treaty thus provides the Obama administration with an end-run around Congress to reach these gun-control holy grails. As the Supreme Court’s Heller and McDonald cases recently declared, the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right “to keep and bear Arms” such as handguns and rifles. Congress’s power to regulate interstate commerce remains broad, but the court’s decisions in other cases—even last year’s challenge to the Affordable Care Act—remind us that those powers are limited.
Obama’s Shot Across Syria’s Bow, Limited Military Operation … But What is the Point of Military Action … Does He Realize he is Siding with Al-Qaeda and Now Great Britain, France, German and Arab League Say Not So Fast
President Barack Obama calls for a shot across the bow and a limited military operation in a strike again Syria for their use of chemical weapons. Obama has called for a “Decisive but limited” military action. WHAT? Does this chicken hawk have any idea what he is talking about? So he wants to strike Syria, but does not want regime change. Does Obama realize that helping the rebels actually means that the United States is aiding Al-Qaeda? Yes, the very folks that killed nearly 3000 individuals on 9-11 in NYC, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. President says Syria’s use of chemical weapons affects US interests. How, exactly? One might say that an attack on Syria by the US, especially standing alone, would have a greater consequence on US interests.
Obama claimed he had support from foreign countries in the strike against Syria, not so fast. Great Britain calls for restraint and a political solution through the UN. And upon further evaluation, France changes its tone and seeks a political solution the ultimate goal for Syria. Germany not on board either.
Barack Obama, the community agitator has backed himself into a corner. This is why you do not draw a line in the sand that you are not willing to back up. Don’t play a game of chicken with people who do not care and do not respect you. Speaking of playing a game of chicken, Russia sending warships to the Mediterranean.
President Barack Obama promised Wednesday that any U.S. military strike at Syria would be a “shot across the bow” that avoids seeing America pulled into “any kind of open-ended conflict.”
Speaking in a wide-ranging interview with PBS Newshour, Obama insisted he has not made a decision on how best to respond to the alleged massacre of civilians by forces loyal to Syrian strongman Bashar Assad using chemical weapons.
But “if, in fact, we can take limited, tailored approaches, not getting drawn into a long conflict — not a repetition of, you know, Iraq, which I know a lot of people are worried about — but if we are saying in a clear and decisive but very limited way, we send a shot across the bow saying, stop doing this, that can have a positive impact on our national security over the long term,” the president said.
That would send the Assad regime “a pretty strong signal, that in fact, it better not do it again.”
Obama, making his first public remarks on the crisis since a CNN interview that aired Friday, rejected claims that rebels fighting to topple Assad were behind the Aug. 21 attack.
“We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out. And if that’s so, then there need to be international consequences,” he said.
“I have no interest in any kind of open-ended conflict in Syria, but we do have to make sure that when countries break international norms on weapons like chemical weapons that could threaten us, that they are held accountable,” he said.
The US and UK on Thursday appeared to have backed down from an immediate punitive military strike against Syria, even as embattled President Bashar al-Assad vowed that his country would emerge “victorious” in any confrontation with America and its allies.
A strike by western forces had appeared imminent but US allies were increasingly reluctant to act before hearing the results of a UN probe into the alleged poisonous gas attacks in the war-torn country on August 21.
President Barack Obama has said he had not yet decided whether to attack Syria in response to alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, but a strike still appeared likely as the US stopped seeking a UN mandate.
This is why the United States was out of their collective minds for reelecting a community agitator, a Campaigner in Chief, a misleader as President.

Whistle-Blower Comes Forward and Says Obama Administration Lied & US Forces Could Have Intervened in Benghazi
BENGHAZIGATE … THEY LIED!!!
From Fox News “America’s News Room” via the Gateway Pundit comes the following bombshell interview with a “Whistle-Blower” that has come forward and says that the Barack Obama administration lied and that United States military forces could have intervened in Benghazi, Libya. The Obama administration has wanted this story to go away like the plague. It has been a cover-up from day one. In December 2012 Admiral Mike Mullen held a press briefing stating that there simply was not enough time for US forced to intervene in Benghazi on 9-11. The result was the death of four Americans, including US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who had asked for aid and none arrived. The Whistle-Blower stated that US forces in Croatia or Spain had time to respond and save the Americans pinned down at the Benghazi. Instead, there was no action from this White House.
Now a “whistle blower” has come forward. Who thinks that the Obama administration and the liberal MSM are going to circle the wagons?
Jordan Islamist Leader Praises Boston Marathon Bombing … “Happy to See the Horror in America” after the Explosions in Boston, MA
Don’t ever forget this America … as you grieve, as you try and rationalize what happened yesterday at the Boston Marathon as innocent people were killed, inured, had arms and legs blown off by two bomb explosions. As you are saddened by the events and wonder how such a thing could happen … other are relishing in the blood spilled. Stop trying to rationalize terrorism and people who just hate us because we are not them. Sadly, as Weasel Zippers states, this is an opinion that is held by much of the Muslim world. At some point, Muslims and Muslim leaders in this country are going to have to come forward and stand with America, the country they live in and against terrorism and radical Islam … instead of worrying out any backlash against them.
AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — The head of an extremist Jordanian Muslim Salafi group says he’s “happy to see the horror in America” after the explosions in Boston.
“American blood isn’t more precious than Muslim blood,” said Mohammad al-Chalabi, who was convicted in an al-Qaeda-linked plot to attack US and other Western diplomatic missions in Jordan in 2003.
“Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there,” he said early Tuesday
MISLEADER: Obama Senior Adviser Robert Gibbs Struggles To Explain Why Obama Finds Time to be on ‘The View’ & Whoopi Goldberg But Not World With World Leaders
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA – MISLEADER …
Talk about a total disgrace on the part of Barack Obama. He makes time to be on ‘The View’ but not to meet with Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu as the Middle East burns and tensions mount with as Iran is about to become nuclear. Barack Obama
fiddles goes on The View as the Middle East burns.
On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Barack Obama senior consultant struggled to answer the question as to how President Obama found time to meet with Whoopi Goldberg and the ladies of ‘The View” but some how could not manage a face to face meeting with world leaders, like Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu.
Transcript from NewsBusters.com:
CHRIS WALLACE, HOST: I want to go back to the UN though and New York this week. You say that he’s got schedules, that foreign leaders have schedules. But the President has blocked out time to appear on The View on Tuesday. So, he has time for Whoopi Goldberg but he doesn’t have time for world leaders?
ROBERT GIBBS, OBAMA SENIOR CAMPAIGN ADVISER: No, Chris. Look, the President is going to be actively involved at the UN General Assembly.
WALLACE: He’s not meeting with any private leaders. He’s giving a speech.
GIBBS: Chris, they have telephones in the White House. Last week, he talked to the President of Egypt. He talked to the leader in Libya. We don’t need a meeting in Washington just to confer with leaders. We’ve got a strong…
WALLACE: But he does need the time to be on The View?
GIBBS: We have a strong diplomatic – I’m sure if he was doing an interview with you on Fox News, you’d have no problem with that.
WALLACE: Well, he hasn’t, but that’s not the point.
GIBBS: I’m sure that’s not the point. No, look Chris, he’s got a strong schedule. He’s actively involved.
WALLACE: You don’t have a problem with the fact that he’s not meeting with any world leaders, but he’s going to appear on The View?
GIBBS: I have no problem with that, because, Chris, you’re the President of the United States every minute of every day.
Priorities … Meet with a Pirate Good, the hell with the PM of Israel
Barack Hussein Obama is not a serious President. He is more concerned with being and campaigning for president than he is actually doing the job as the president. Obama would rather joke around with the likes of David Letterman, hand with the Hollywood elite, fund raise and of course golf. When will America wake up and realize that Obama is not serious and is either overwhelmed by the job, or actually wants war to break out?
Sorry, but this should be considered criminal, how about impeachable? At what point is Barack Obama going to be and do the work of the President of the United States, rather than just campaigning for the position? Obama, the “Campaigner in Chief’ has time for David Letterman, The View, ‘Talk like a pirate Day’, the Woman’s USA Olympic basketball team, Beyonce & Jay-Z but not the leader of our greatest ally in the Middle East as Iran goes nuclear. This is nothing more than dereliction of duty on the part of Obama. Honestly, I can understand how individuals voted for Obama in 2008 as they bought his BS of Hope and Change and were fooled by the political rhetoric of an “outsider” candidate. However, for those who vote for Obama in 2012 knowing what this President has done for four years, his failed economic polices and his lack of leadership are either woefully ignorant, are total leaches on society or just have a disdain for their country.
If a Republican President was every doing the same as Obama, the corrupt liberal media complex would be ripping him to shreds.
UPDATE I: However, Gibbs was not done on the FOX News Sunday shredding his brand of Democrat Obama manure as reported by CNN. Gibbs actually said with a strait face that Romney ha the advantage over Obama in the debates because he had previously participated in many debates in the GOP primary. The Political Wire has called it the quote of the day. Please, spare us the BS. Obama is a master campaigner and BS’er. Also, how can any one be considered a favorite when they will have the liberal corrupt MSM complex moderator against them?
A senior Obama campaign adviser said Mitt Romney has a leg up on President Barack Obama in the upcoming presidential debates.
“Mitt Romney I think has an advantage, because he’s been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year,” Gibbs said Sunday on Fox News.
WOW, the following is brought to you by the Barack Obama administration via VP Joe Biden. Vice President Biden tells US mayors that the great cities are not in America, they are in China. Really?
Can someone please tell me who elected these people into office and why anyone would vote for Obama/Biden in 2012?
Hat Tip: TWS
“If I blindfolded Americans and took them into some of the airports or ports in China, and then took one of them to any of your cities in the middle of the night just so that they could see it,” Biden said. “If I said, ‘which one is in America and which one is in China,’ most Americans would say, ‘That great one is in America. It’s not!”
The Gaffetastic in Chief …
Barack Obama’s protocol goof … Just when you thought that Obama could not be any more embarrassing, um, he is. President Barack Obama waives during a group photo of world leaders at the US. The full pic can be seen HERE. What is next for Obama, making rabbit ears? Does anyone ever advise this guy, or does he just do what ever he damn well pleases, no matter have inappropriate or childish?
Video hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
This should go over well with his leadership polls.
