Sixteen Republican Senators Vote For Cloture On Gun Control Bill

Red State

Remember these sixteen names when they run for office again.

The sixteen Republicans who voted to proceed were Sens. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Saxby Chambliss (Ga.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Susan Collins (Maine). Bob Corker (Tenn.), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Dean Heller (Nev.), John Hoeven (N.D.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), John McCain (Ariz.), Pat Toomey (Pa.) and Roger Wicker (Miss.).

As reported by RedState yesterday, this bill would allow doctors to add a person’s name to the national database currently used for background checks, and list them as mentally ill, thus denying them a gun, and doing so without informing the patient or letting them present a defense before their name gets put into the computer.

The proposal will allow a doctor to add a patient to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) without ever telling the patient he or she has been added.

There would be no due process requirement. Not all doctors will be able to do it with the same ease, but many will. Knowing a doctor could add him to a federal database as mentally ill without his knowledge could potentially dissuade a patient from going to the doctor in the first place to get help.

Worse, if the doctor does so and makes a mistake, the patient would have to actively work through the system to get himself removed — guilty before being proven innocent.

And now sixteen Republican Senators have decided that this bill can move forward. To call it disgraceful is too mild a word.

Is Obama Allowing Illegals to Cross Our Southern Border an Encouragement of Domestic Attacks to Facilitate a Government Takeover?

Freedom Outpost
 
By now, most of us on this side of the pen, or the display, or the microphone, have written or spoken of the Mexican-American border problem.

With thousands upon thousands of “children” crossing every week, it would seem that our southern border is wide open. Thanks to our president, the border patrol and other authorities are overwhelmed, leaving little if any manpower to patrol.

So, who else might be taking advantage of the Southern sieve? It certainly wouldn’t be Islamic terrorists, would it?

Now, we commentators have also written and spoken extensively of the Cloward and Piven strategy – a strategy to purposely overwhelm the system to the point of collapse. We have postulated that this is exactly what Obama is doing at our southern border.

I believe this to be true. But I also contend that this strategy may have dire consequences beyond just the illegal immigrant flood.

Already these illegals are being shipped all over the country to take up residence at military bases – Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, California, and even Massachusetts. And these are the ones that we know about. No doubt the list of states will grow as more and more enter.

With the border wide open, anyone can cross. Now is the perfect time for terrorists to arrive and set up cells across the country.

WSB news in Atlanta claims that at least 300 Somali terrorists from the al-Qaeda affiliate al-Shabaab are already here, but their location is unknown. However, it is a fact that they are here.

As an aside: if a terrorist or group of terrorists crosses the border, will they get hassled or threatened by the drug cartels or traffickers. I wonder how that works. Does an Islamic leader from overseas call a Mexican drug lord and alert him that Mohammed al-Mustafa al-Bakiri al-Mohammed is heading your way and to steer clear or assist his passage? Maybe the Imam from an Islamic mosque in this country puts the word out. Maybe the Muslim Brotherhood, like UPS, loves logistics.

The next logical question to ask is; does the Obama administration know that this must be happening – that with the flood of “innocent children” there will be Islamists, bent on our destruction?

But, you may ask, “They’re only children, what could they do?”

The direct answer is nothing, but let’s not be naïve and assume the adults are being turned away.

So is Obama stupid enough to think that only “innocents” are crossing, or does he just not care?

And now for a little conspiracy fun.

Is Obama purposely allowing terror cells to form in the United States? Could it be that the destruction of capitalism and reformation into a state-controlled society is just not happening fast enough? Are they encouraging domestic strikes as a better/quicker way to facilitate a government takeover?

Is the ultimate goal martial law, temporary government control of everything and everyone? Of course, it would be temporary just long enough for most citizens to get used to the “new normal,” and then some form would become permanent.

Now look at where I’ve gone with this simple immigration rant. I’ve taken it from “dreamer” children to adults, to terrorists crossing the border, to them forming terror cells throughout the country, to domestic attacks, to temporary martial law, to permanent martial law.

Okay, I’ve completely lost my mind, and I’m partly kidding – partly – but just 10 years ago, would you believe we’d have a president who fancies himself a dictator – one who gets away with picking and choosing which laws to follow, or making up his own?

Would you believe that in America, what is currently happening at the border could actually occur?

As Obama continues to push the dictatorial envelope, maybe we should stop discounting anything as being beyond the pale.

Obama To Honor Illegal Immigrants At White House As “Champions Of Change”…

Weasel Zippers

He certainly enjoys making a mockery of our immigration laws.

Via Daily Caller:

President Obama’s White House will honor illegal immigrant activists at a ceremony Tuesday.

Two activists with the group Mi Familia Vota Education Fund will be honored as “Champions of Change” at a special White House ceremony.

Fernanda Zaragoza-Gomez, 19, a Colorado Mi Familia Vota canvasser, and Steven Arteaga Rodriguez, a Texas activist with the group, are both “DREAMers” who began their activism careers after applying for and gaining Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a program established by Obama to provide living and working status for undocumented young immigrants.

The activist group, which has offices in six states, works for the goal of “expanding the electorate” through “direct, sustainable citizenship, voter registration, census education, GOTV and issue organizing in key states.”

While the White House is teaming with law enforcement officers, no arrests are expected to be made Tuesday.

US-made Stinger missiles have likely fallen into ISIS hands, officials say

Fox News

U.S. officials with access to the latest U.S. intelligence on Iraq told Fox News it “appears likely/probable” that U.S.-made Stinger missiles have fallen into the hands of Sunni insurgents.

It is possible that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters acquired them from army bases they have taken over in recent days, the sources said.

The Stinger missile is a shoulder-fired surface-to-air weapon that is used against aircraft.

As ISIS forces have advanced through Iraq, concerns have increased that more U.S.-made weaponry could fall into the hands of the radical group.

Iraqi intelligence officials said ISIS fighters managed to take control of two big weapons depots late last week holding some 400,000 items, including AK-47 rifles, rockets and rocket-propelled grenades, artillery shells and mortars. A quarter of the stockpiles were quickly sent to Syria in order to help the group’s comrades there, they said.

Also last week, according to a report from the West Point Combating Terrorism Center, the ISIS “now possesses scores of Iraqi military equipment originally provided by the United States, from Humvees and cargo vehicles to small arms.”
