Obama's Pragmatism Stops U.N. Arms Treaty -- for Now

In the end, Barack Obama didn't have the guts to take the guns ... yet.

The U.N. Small Arms Treaty was expected to be finalized by member nations on Friday, but on Friday morning, the U.S. representatives announced that America needed more time to consider the treaty.

Almost immediately, Russia and China pulled the plug on their efforts, as well. Those countries were among the primary agitators for this treaty, which seems specifically designed to disarm American citizens. As the two countries historically most interested in destroying the U.S., it's obvious why they wanted the treaty so badly.

For supporters of the Second Amendment, it's a reprieve of at least six months, until after the election. The gravy on the bird is that Obama is being blamed by his liberal brethren for chickening out.

"This was stunning cowardice by the Obama administration, which at the last minute did an about-face and scuttled progress toward a global arms treaty, just as it reached the finish line," said Suzanne Nossel, executive director of Amnesty International USA. "It's a staggering abdication of leadership by the world's largest exporter of conventional weapons to pull the plug on the talks just as they were nearing an historic breakthrough."

Basing important policy decisions not on the Constitution but on what is personally beneficial to Obama? You don't say.

There was no way Obama could have signed such a treaty right now. His re-election campaign is faltering. He's giving away amnesty, support for gay marriage, money and any other goodies he can to try to lure his supporters back to the voting booths in November, but he's hitting a wall as more people realize finally what a weasel he is.

Just this past Wednesday he issued another of his infamous executive orders, this one promising a whole new bureaucracy and slew of programs to benefit blacks, who have abandoned him in large numbers because of his pandering to the gays.

It must have dawned even on his dim brain that stealing people's guns at this moment would have been a good way to fuel an insurrection. A lot of people think that's the ultimate plan of this administration, but evidently Obama isn't ready for it just yet.

If he had signed the treaty, he would have unleashed a fury not just from the Right, but from anyone who had a gun for home protection, which includes many people on the Left who support some restrictions but not total elimination of guns.

Further, if the backlash became violent, Obama would likely have borne the disapproval of the scaredy-cat anti-war crowd. A lot of the Obamabots might have woken from their trance.

If there's going to be an "uprising" under Obama, he wants it on his terms. The Occupy Wall Streeters are waiting in the wings for the go-ahead from Van Jones or someone else. Martial law, the thinking of some folks goes, is just a "false flag" event away.

The good news with the failure of the arms treaty is not only that it didn't pass, but that it may have revealed Obama's yellow streak again.

When he unilaterally declared amnesty and shredded our Constitution along with our borders, Obama effectively made himself king. But he stopped short of declaring himself one. With the arms treaty, he was on the verge of making himself a tyrant in fact, but he stopped short.

Many people see some of his executive orders and other statements and actions as paving the way for martial law.

If that's so, the ultimate fate of our country may hang on Obama's personal cowardice.

The bad news out of the U.N. is that the arms treaty is not dead. It's not even on life support. It's hanging out by the pool sipping pina coladas until after the election. If Obama wins re-election, count on the treaty coming back.

    Just one more reason to make sure the poser and fraud and all his friends do not make it back into office. The only real reason he did not push it through is that the Republicans would have done a victory dance on his face if he had by denying it Senate approval.

God help us all.

        • Jeff Scism

          This Treaty is designed to short circuit the Second amendment. When the US signs a treaty it becomes the Supreme Law of the Land. And if you read the Supremacy Clause you will see that The constitution and laws made under its authority are Equal to Treaties, In other words they are Supreme law, and NOT under the Constitution, and States and Judges are PROHIBITED from ruling on Them. The Supreme Court has ruled on them in the past, BUT the Constitution doesn't place the treaties under US law, only International law. It doesn't matter a lick if they are "unconstitutional" or not. They do not have to comply with the Constitution.

        I don't think it would be a good idea to hand the UN the keys to the USA, and that's just what they want. Once those treaties are in place we no longer have the right to govern our country. I don't want the UN led by a bunch of morons from third world countries making decisions which would put down the USA.

        Very easy moron. If a ally of the United States needed weapons to defend themselves such as Israel and the UN said no we could not do it. Therefore you will have the UN dictate US policy. And that is just one example. Meanwhile neither China or Russia will obey it anyways.

    Tad Cronn's last line is the gospel truth. If Obama stays in power the UN Small Arms Treaty will be right back in our faces. We must vote this power hungry control freak out along with all of his Nazi minded dim allies. Vote anyone with a "D" by their name out on 11-6-12 and let's start restoring our Republic. Patriots it's time to take out the trash.

    • Classic_Liberal

      There was a time when I would have agreed with you on voting straight Republican but if anyone thinks that is a winning strategy they just aren't paying attention. The Democrats have only had a majority in both houses once and they blew their wad on Obamacare so how did all those other liberty robbing laws get passed? How did all the socialist programs (social security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.) that have literally bankrupted OUR country get passed? Not without the Rs voting for them as well. The republican party has let us all down just as much as the dems and we are supposed to trust them. How many republicans voted for the Patriot Act, and it's reauthorization, and the NDAA, look it up.

After being caught THEY DID IT AGAIN!! Their apologies are burried in some obscure news hour and are weak at best. THEY SHOULD BE SUED !! Forget Zimmerman he was just the latest attempt to start a racial war and attack on "Stand your ground" laws across the nation.

        Fine you have 2 choices in november,obama and his socialistic plan for America,government control over EVERYTHING in your life,rationed healthcare(government will decide whether you live or die,not you or your doctor),re-education camps(to reprogram you to obamas demands,if not ,you die),more taxes,more debt,no protection,no rights,no freedom,no wealth,no jobs,I would bet on sharia law in the U.S. and in that case I would hate to be a woman,thieves,rapists,killers,gangs,kidnappers,third world countries and our own government defenseless against all of them OR romney who has great plans to get this country back on its feet and in the right direction.WHICH IS IT GOING TO BE,YOU HAVE ONLY TWO WAYS TO GO,what you have already seen but worse or somebody new to be given a chance.Our grandkids will be paying for this BEFORE THEY ARE EVEN BORN,I wouldn't want to bring a child into a socialistic world or should I say "HELL".

      • Jack

        I have had Zero changesw in my life because of the Patriot act & don't know of anyone that has had any thing change for them also. So much for the Patriot act being a bad thing, Oh yeah that's right I did have my ID checked under the real ID act when I renewed my drives license & it didn't hurt me a bit, in fact until I saw my credit report I didn't know it had happened, swo top me it is no big deal they found out I was born here in America & am who I say I am. Big deal & if they want to listen in on my phone conversations all I can say or would say is have fun being bored. This is what happens when you have nothing to hide, now if they would only run obama, since this clown is hiding things with his records being sealed

      • Jack

        You have to go back & look it up as all you are saying was passed under the democraps except for medicare which was passed under Johnson but by the gop all the others were passed under the democrats by the democrats & signed by a democratic president. maybe you just need a refresher. It was also by the democrats & signed by Johnson that desolved the SS trust fund so they could get their hands on the trillions of dollars in it so they could spend it on more social programs. So here is some advice you go look things up before you make a fool of yourself by posting lies about any political party. And notice I am not sticking up for any party as I am a registered independent & vote for who I thhink will be best for Americans, but I will never vote for a liberal tax & spend democrat I only vote for conservatives & yes the gop is complicit in passing many laws but they are also tricked into it by liberal democrats that make promises to get what they want & then renig on those promises so neither party is free from guilt or one is as bad as the other but one in particular is really bad

        • Maj John

          Republicans never controlled congress under Johnson.

      • Rob

        That may be true but we are dealing with Marxist Socialist here who is clearly a puppet for much bigger low lifes, like George Soros. At this point I think the Tea Party has awakened several Republican politicians and a few Democratic, to the fact that people are finally feeling the squeeze of corrupt politicians. While the money was abundant we were willing, or at lease not pissed enough, to let them get away with it. Obama has been good for this country in one respect, he has awakened society to the real threat of total government control and destruction of the Republic. We will see in November if people have learned their lesson about electing someone who has no viewable past and has spent seven figures to seal all the past records of his life. Why would anyone do that, what could be so horrible that he fears anyone seeing it???? I can't wait for the books about Obama when he's gone, liberals are going to choke on their words of support of this political ghost.

      • Sue

        Exactly! Two parties with one head. Put them all on notice. A clean sweep.

      • fort9erdon

        Your post shows up your ignorance on some of the things you mention. For instance, Social Security was clicking along just fine, until in 1964, the Democrats, led by LB JOHNSON decided to raid the "lockbox" and use the money for other things. Now it is called an entitlement. Sorry, BUT, I paid for the benefits I am now receiving, yet the government wants me to feel guilty like I am stealing my SS check, and they are sending it to me out of the goodness of their heart!. BULLCRAP! Now, they are trying to steal the money in the Railroad Retirement fund, which is soolvent until like 2075, and use the money to rescue Social Security, because they already stole the SS money. Railroaders get a much better pension than Social Security. Why? Because, over the years we paid in twice as much as Social Security, and receive a bigger pension. They want to reduce the pension paid to railroaders to Social Security levels, even though we paid twice as much, to bail out Social Security. Again, bullcrap. I am vested in Railroad Retirement, bnut also paid Social Security for the final 15 years of my working life. So, I really, REALLY got screwed by the government. So, don't be blaming Repubs for the SS debacle, as it was a democrat, LBJ, who started the Raid of the SS funds for other purposes.

      • Conservativesniper

        I'm with ya. The RINO's and the Carlyle Group are just as bad as the Dems and the commies. The NDAA is some scary stuff. "Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?" and "I know not what others may choose but, as for me, give me liberty or give me death."

        Patrick Henry

      • Maj John

        The Republican Party has not let us down as often as the Democrats, in that usually when the Republicans control the White House they do no control congress. For example:
        Bush II Served 8 years controlled both houses 2 of the 8 years.
        Clinton Served 8 years controlled both houses 6 of the 8 years.
        Bush I Served 4 years never controlled either house.
        Reagan Served 8 years and never controlled both houses.
        Carter Served 4 years and controlled both houses all 4 years.
        Ford served 2 years and never controlled either house.
        Nixon served 6 years and never controlled either house.
        Johnson served 5 years and always controlled both houses.
        Kennedy Served 3 years and always controlled both houses.
        Eisenhower Served 8 years and controlled both houses 2 years.

        So you can see that counting the current administration, the Republicans have controlled both houses for only 6 years going back to 1952, or 60 years. So I'd suggest that the Democrats were responsible for passing most all of the legislation never needing any Republican votes. And all the programs passed during the depression and WWII were all passed by Democrats who controlled both houses even at that time. So you are dead wrong!

  • Mike M.

    Obama understands, it is easier to subjugate the country, if there are no citizens who are armed. Our founders created the 2nd amendment to enable to citizens of this country to be remove any dictator who might usurp control over our country. The existence of the 2nd amendment has also restrained other country's from attacking the US. Documents released from Russia after the cold war attest to this.
    The world would be a different place without our 2nd amendment rights. For 100 years politicians have expanded government control over our lives and have removed protections a bit at a time. We are no longer free, in the ways we were in the past. Gun control laws are just another attempt to subjugate each of us.

    • John

      Not only that but he has many people that constantly monitor the internet & advisors that report to him what is being said. With many people "talking" of open revolt he just cannot take the chance he wants reelected so bad he can almost taste it & is not going to seal his slim chance

      Two comments.
      1. The Japanese stated the 2nd amendment is why they never attacked the US mainland during World War II. Too many citizens had firearms and knew how to use them. The Japanese said there was no way they could defeat an "Army" that large.
      2. The right to bear arms means the right to bear arms against our own government when it oversteps it constitutionally established limits. BTW. The people decide if the government has overstepped its boundaries; not the courts and not Congress.

      The 2nd Amendment is THE ONLY THING standing between the people and tyranny. Even Ice-T agrees. A CCW is your last line of personal defense,... against many things.

      And as far as subjugating the people, look up Innocents Betrayed on YouTube and watch it. Overpoweringly persuasive, only an idiot would side with gun control after watching that video. I wonder is Saddamn Hussein had gun control 'laws' on the books?

  • Clara

    Why don't people read the Constitution?? The 2nd amendment CAN NOT be changed. This includes all of the first 10 amendments. They CAN Not be changed! The law of the LAND is the CONSTITUTION. It plainly states that NO foreign country or anything else super cedes the Constitution as law, and that includes the u n. Americans need to read their Constitution and let their congressmen know that they have read it and understand it and that the congressmen had better go along with the Constitution or they will be out!

    • http://www.facebook.com/lorna.doone.319 Lorna Doone

      This is true it can't be changed under American sovereignty, but China and Russia are pushing to put us under UN jurisdiction. Don't forget we owe China trillions because our politician's take money from them. So China now feels that they own us and can dictate American policy. When this treaty goes down whether through Obama, or some other Progressive President the SWHTF as American's won't take lightly to their sovereignty being usurped by the UN.

      The problem is that Barry and his regime are not in the least interested in what our Constitution and the Bill of Rights contain. They have walked all over the United States of America, the American people, and the Constitution. If the Rainbow Boy is re-elected we can kiss our Constitution and all of our rights good-bye. I agree that we need to vote ALL of the upside-down people out of our congress. But waving the Constitution in Barry's face obviously does not bother him one bit. He just throws it down and p**ses all over it.

    • Jeff Scism

      Re-read it yourself. Read the Supremacy clause

      There are three EQUALLY SUPREME parts of the "Supreme Law of the Land".

      1. The Constitution itself,
      2. Laws made under its authority. , and
      3. TREATIES ratified by the Senate.

      The wording indicates that the TREATIES are NOT Under, but equal to the Constitution. The Constitution has NO AUTHORITY OVER treaties. The Constitution is a contract between the People and the Government, Treaties are a Contract between the USA and a foreign nation, which is INTERNATIONAL LAW. The PEOPLE of the USA are not parties to a treaty, but have to abide by it. Treaties are the President and the Senates TRUMP card.

Everything they have been doing is geared toward creating the appropriate "tipping point" (economic collapse, mass civil unrest etc.), Giving them an excuse to move in and take over completely.

    • Ladd Prier

      Excellent point Richard. You can rest assured that if Obama is re-elected he will return to gun control with avengence; an armed populace is very hard to subjugate to totalitarianism. Fortunately even our fence-sitters can agree with the rationality of arming one's self to defend his home against maurading druggies. And you CAN hunt with an AK47 or AR16!

      • VT Patriot

        He and the 'unstable' demonrats have the same opinion. Guns are in the way. And 'heavy' guns (O'Reilly - you're a fool too) are worse. Defined - 'heavy' means they are semi auto, look real nasty, have detatchable magazines, carry more than one round, etc. I have guns that are much more pwerful than 'heavy' guns, used for hunting. And I also luv shooting my AR15. But if I want to do damage to another living thing, nothing beats a 12 GA within a reasonable distance.

        The Insurrection will come after the "October Surprise" if Obama thinks he is losing.

Either way he will do everything he can in the time he has left to accomplish PURE ObamaNation.

  • PPTA

    A very good, and honest story. The same thoughts millions of us now have. It is time for Republicans to get off their hind ends and impeach this President. If hey wait for he election, tht may, and I do say may, be to late. This President will resort to anything, to stay in office. Martial Law, which could shut congress down, could stop, or nulify elections, you name it.

    • Rustytruck

      This point keeps coming up so many times and again, Obama can not declare Martial law, it is only Congress who can authorize that. He can ask them for it but with the situation in DC they will never give into that. Darrel Issa for one will never give into Obama, even tho he won't do anything about him just being in office illegally he won't give in to Martial Law.

      • Jeff Scism

        Obama can declare a National emergency and have MORE time than he has left in Office to resolve it before Congress gets a hold of it. Just like declaring Military action, He can make WAR but not declare it, but it gets done anyway.
        AND the Constitution means NOTHING to him.

    I am so glad that he did not sign this horrible treaty and pray that it never does pass, but this just shows to what lengths this imposter will go to win the election. He will lie, lie, lie and then lie some more, hide his past and lie some more.

    The 2nd amendment is not simply about "gun ownership" it is there to allow the American people to protect themselves against a rogue and overbearing government, Unfortunately, in these imes, the 2nd amendment is more than ever to be viewed as necessary and must be held a constitutionaly inviolate!

    In order to keep the gun grabbers away. We need a Bill to stop all this crap of trying to take away our Second Amendment Rights. The Bill should worded that no one can pass or take away any part of the Second Amendment or prohibit anything to do with the sell of guns, ammo and magazines. And most of all keep the Supreme Court from making their own laws. When is enough a enough?

  • Bob

    Only the military should have AK-47's. They don't use them. Their not issued them. History repeats itself because no one listens. What did prohibition prove? More boos were available than before. And what did it create? Slaughter! Take away guns and the criminal will get them easier than ever. They would have to kill me to take my gun away from me. And I'm sure most people would feel the same way. It isn't guns that kill people. It's people that kill people! It lays on a table enate until some idiot uses it wrongly. If not a gun, then a knife. Let's do away with knives. then baseball bats. When does it stop? obama's next step was to control more and more of our lives. thank God it didn't happen...yet!

    We should continue to expect more 'false flag' events like the Dark Knight shootings (there's way too many loose ends for this to be what it appears that the media 'wants' us to believe) between now and November. The NRA pressured enough senators to avert the crisis this time, but it will be back as it has time and again since Reagan's day. Prezident Zero, if the event ginned up was big enough, might have gotten this thru and disarmed America, opening the floodgates to criminal takeover and armed invaison from overseas enemies.

The NRA is part of the Establishment's Elite and is nothing more than a Lobbying group, taking your money years and have NOT Protected the 2nd Amendment in Reality! Sure they put on a good show but it is just to keep their paychecks nice & fat!!! Where was the NRA when President Perv Clinton Banned Semi-Auto & High Capacity??? Where has the NRA been in DC for all these years?? If you want an organization that is not "In-Bed" with the Tyrannical Federal Goverment than you should check out: National Association of Gun Rights (NAGR).

    Dead Wrong on the Timeline... The UN is not going to wait till after the Election!!!! They plan on meeting in September to Vote it in!!! Between Now & Then, the UN could still get it Passed and the UN Secretary General stated the Treaty could be Passed in, as early as, 2 Weeks; He also said that they are still working on it, to get he passed!!
    The UN does not have to be in session to vote on the Treaty and will most likely do what US Congress did in Passing ObamaCare! If Congress can screw the US over with the way they passed ObamaCare, Don't think for a Second that the 'SCUMBAG UN' will just make up stuff as they go!!!!!!!!

So if an Election was actually held we have the choice of a Socialist Dictatorship with Obama or a Fascist Police State with Romney! Romney might say he is Conservative & Pro-2nd Amendment but truth is he DID sign into Law RomneyCare and he did sign the Law BANNING weapons & magazines with capacity above 10 rounds!

    The "Gun Control" issue has been around since the 60's, and likely that it wont go away any time soon. ("Problem") They "The alleged Law Makers" DO NOT ENFORCE WHATS ON THE BOOKS, but they still want more control? then the question more control for what? In the final analysis this WILL LEAD to gun confiscation, just like Nazi Germany, and the people in this country "MOST" Do Not Get It.

    I Have come to the realization that there is not a dams dimes worth of difference between Repubicans or Deamon-crats. The Slime at the very top positions of our government are only concerned with one thing and one thing only, and that is to get re-elected so they don't need to really work for a living. IN FACT, YOU, ME, AND THE REST OF AMERICA ARE SLAVES IN THE FORM OF TAXES, AND GOVERNMENT RED TAPE.

    While I am not too interested in derailing this comment about guns, I do point out that our "Law Makers" are phonies that don't give a crap about Americans in general. at THE VERY TOP "they" are THE oligarch of this country. IF YOU OR ME EVER LOSE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT OUR FAMILY'S FROM THE THUGS WE WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY JUST LIKE GERMANY. IT IS OVER FOR ALL OF US.

    WHEN SECONDS COUNT THE COPS ARE ALWAYS MINUTES AWAY. There is one other factor that MOST people DO NOT KNOW and that is the cops DO NOT have to protect you and there is CASE LAW to prove it. Where I live you are lucky to get a cop to even show up, so in short they really are NOT about the job they were hired for. It comes down to the paperwork. Every little incident they deal with equals yards of paper.

    DO US ALL A FAVOR AND GET RID OF THE "UNITED NOTHINGS" SEND THEM BACK TO HELL WHERE THEY CAME FROM. THEY ARE THE ENTITY THAT IS PRESSING GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TO CANCEL YOUR GUN RIGHTS. THROW THEM OFF THE EASTERN SEABOARD FOREVER. SEND "COFFEE CAKE ANNON" AWAY AND TELL THIS THIRD RATE TIN POT DICTATOR TO GO F the bleep OFF. DE-FUND THE UNITED NOTHINGS NOW.

  • mrsawdust

    Obama signing this treaty would be his death wish for any re-election bid, so he postponed the signing. As Americans we need this treaty to be trashed and never to come up for consideration in the future. If re-elected Obama and his radical democratic cronies will not waste any time bringing this treaty up again for radification. Obama could care less if he sells the USA down the tubes to Russia and China. Thanks to Obama we've already taken a back seat in many areas to these Socialistic, and Communistic Countries. Obama himself is a Socialist and Communist and supports terrorist activities that will have a negative effect on our security and defense abilities. The first step in taking over a state is to "ELIMINATE THE ABILITY FOR THE PEOPLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES". For you Jews that are on the left, and reported still leaning towards voting for Obama in 2012, "THINK BACK IN HISTORY TO 1933 WHEN HITLER DISARMED THE GERMAN POPULATION OF ARMS AND PROCEEDED TO SET IN MOTION A PROGRAM TO ELIMINATE YOUR RACE". Obama is no different than Hitler, he needs to be defeated and his record esponged.

    Google: "Obama Caught Telling Russian Leader To Wait Until After Election" and watch the video to understand how Obama thinks. While he was talking about another situation, this gives insight on Obama's tactics.

    Obama tells Russian leader, "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility."

    Russia and China know this. They will wait until after the election to make this U.N. Arms Treaty happen. I am not so sure that Romney would be any different. He also has a history of supporting anti-gun legislation.

    Even if this was passed, would anyone actually give up their weapons and play dead though? I wouldn't; and I believe there are many others that love and believe in this country as it is. It would not be American to allow these terrorists (those who hate this country and what it stands for) to disarm us. At some point a stand needs to be taken, and this would be that point. It would be either then or never for us. If these basic rights are taken away, we no longer are America anymore. And if we aren't in America anymore, we aren't Americans. And if we aren't Americans, we more than likely will not be free.

  • MEG

    This issue is NOT going away. It will come back with a vengence or perhaps quietly in the night. Those pushing it are just looking for a "better" way to get it through. It will be thrust upon us like the healthcare bill, only now involving countries who want to see us lose our sovereignty. Obama also needed to appear to step away from this issue, not causing to incite gun owners BECAUSE of THIS maneuver. When their so called civil unrest, you know the one that they are hoping for, occurs for whatever reason, they can say, "you see, these gun owners are out of control, we need to do something". Obama will not go quietly IF he loses the election, he will inject his inciteful comments like he did with TVM. The huge forces behind this man's re-election are far beyond comprehension. The weakening and dismantling of America is key. We must fight back, we the people must keep America strong, most of our congress will not fight for her, they will lie down, only a few will.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HBZY2YUGUU2J6L2VI3LJS2XF7Q Ralph Z

    Obama is a liberal and liberals are cowards at the core. If they believe it will affect their power, and they can't protect their power without delaying a decision, they will delay instead of standing on their supposed principles. Also, as far as the Constitution is concerned, Obama believe it doesn't mean what it says. He is like the Christians that believe it does not matter what the Bible says, so they change it to mean what they believe it should mean and take out the offending parts. That is the best example of how Obama and his crowd treat the Constitution that I can think of. Oh well, Obama found out he can rule by Executive Order and no one will stop him, even if they have taken the oath to defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic. I suggest we arrest all of Congress, our President and Vice President on the charge of Treason. Think about it.

    With the treaty would have come some very nasty reactions. There are at least 5-8 million willing to die or kill to stop people that have signed such a treaty. Even Canada which tried to register firearms found out that millions of Canadians refused to register them. After 10 years, billions wasted , and not one crime solved they trashed the law a few months ago. So let them try. There are more patriots in the US than the total population of Canada.

  • http://ja-js.blogtownhall.com Chuck Fowler

    Of course China and Russia were all for the treaty. They don't allow their own people to have guns and that's part of how their governments control the masses. That's just what the UN and other despots around the world want to foist on the US as well.

    See the Lib Senators fleeing the Obama Titanic?

    Everyone talks about Martial Law.
    Sorry .. those Senators know that an insurrection in this country is their death warrant. They will be among the first to die while the Anointed One cringes in a bunker somewhere surrounded by his personal security force.
    They're as yellow as Obama. Cowards through and through. But they don't have a personal bunker to cringe in. So, no, they jumped ship the second all of those petitions, phone calls, death threats, etc, from outraged Americans started pouring in.
    This treaty is DEAD. There will be no end runs. The Uber-Libs are living in fear of what is going to happen to them if they ever push this again.
    Imagine that .. the cowards tried to disarm us .. and now they live in fear .. and well they should.

  • GeoInSD

    Obama did say a year or two ago that he was working on gun control "under the radar". Apparently this arms treaty was it. Fortunately watchdog groups got the word out about what Obama was up to. I didn't hear coverage on mainstream media.

    It was quite underhanded what Obama was trying to do. Harry Reid was probably complicit. By a previous treaty the US had ratified, a treaty signed by the US is in effect if not explicitly rejected by the Senate or the president. Obama's plan was probably to sign the arms treaty and Reid not bring it up to a vote. Obama would thus yet again find a way to bypass Congress and dictate yet again.

    It's time to pull out of the U.N. It's gone way over what it's original intent was. It was suppose to be nations coming together to peacefully iron out difficulties.

There are enemies of the U.S. sitting up there making policy regarding our nation. Why do you think Russia and China were so disappointed at what King Barack did?

    Our forefathers were no one's fools. They saw what a tyrannical government could do and the strangle hold it had on the people.

It is imperative a subversive government dismantles it or it cannot impose the freedom crushing laws and programs it needs to control a society and the country.

    Obama chickened out because of the presentation from the NRA, in addition to the 1,000's of letters & e-mails from hundreds of thousands of armed citizens & the Militias across the Country. There are over 1250 Militias, not including the 21 States that have organized State sponsored Militias. Plans from many of the Militias was to get 1 million strong, armed citizens showing up at the WH. Bozo Obama began "sweating" at that point. Bozo the law is that WE THE PEOPLE have the right to keep & bear arms (2nd Amend) & Gun Control is FORBIDDEN in America (the Dick Act of 1902).

    Think of it this way. There were 600,00 hunting licenses issued in the state of Wisconsin last year. If you add the number of hunting licenses issued in every state, no country would want to send as large an army as it would need to conquer us ( except China or India.) Add to those numbers, the people in every state that issues permits for concealed carry . And then, for good measure, estimate the number of people who own guns of some type for home defense, but who don't have a ccp or hunting license. I know that most of those people aren't trained soldiers, but neither were the men at Lexington and Concord when they faced the British. What were the British trying to do ? Confiscate their guns and gunpowder... and they were chased all the way back to Boston.

  • H.I.N.
