Obama Declares He Will Act Unilaterally on Gun Control: ‘Congress Still Hasn’t Done Anything’


In his first weekly address of 2016, President Barack Obama expressed dismay that the U.S. Congress had not enacted gun control legislation he desired, so now he is planning to act unilaterally on the matter.

“This Friday, I’ll be thinking about my friend Gabby Giffords, five years into her recovery from the shooting in Tucson,” said Obama. “And all across America, survivors of gun violence and those who lost a child, a parent, a spouse to gun violence are forced to mark such awful anniversaries every single day.

“And yet Congress still hasn’t done anything to prevent what happened to them from happening to other families,” he said.

The president said he plans to meet with the attorney general to get the process moving.

NEW EMAIL shows Pentagon ASKED Hillary to LET THEM send help to Benghazi, proving Leon Panetta LIED!

The Right Scoop

An email recently obtained by Judicial Watch shows that the Pentagon was demanding Hillary allow them to send help to Benghazi during the 2012 attack. This would completely contradict the claim from Hillary and Leon Panetta that no forces were available and within reach to provide help to the compound that was under siege.

From Fox News:

As the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was unfolding, a high-ranking Pentagon official urgently messaged Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top deputies to offer military help, according to an email obtained by Judicial Watch.

The revelation appears to contradict testimony Defense Secretary Leon Panetta gave lawmakers in 2013, when he said there was no time to get forces to the scene in Libya, where four Americans were killed, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.

“I just tried you on the phone but you were all in with S [apparent reference to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton],” reads the email, from Panetta’s chief of staff Jeremy Bash. “After consulting with General Dempsey, General Ham and the Joint Staff, we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.”

Ironically, Hillary Clinton and her minions were concerned with spinning the story instead of gearing up the military forces.

Another Unbelievably Incompetent Government Story

Independent Sentinel

The Washington Department of Corrections’ computer glitch is responsible for another murder. Since 2002, about 3,200 inmates have been mistakenly given early release. They didn’t even know there was a problem until a family of a crime victim found out the perpetrator was released too early. Then they did nothing! Now people are dying.

A 26-year old criminal, Jeremiah Smith gunned down an innocent 17-year old man in May and is now back where he was supposed to be all along – in jail. He killed the man only two weeks after he was released.

Smith was serving a five-year sentence for robbery, burglary and assault. He likely deserved a longer sentence than that. These hardened criminals plea down these sentences and now the government lets them out by mistake.

Another inmate, Robert Jackson, was wrongly released and then killed his girlfriend in a car crash. He’s charged with vehicular homicide.

Only about two dozen of the freed offenders are back in jail.

This software problem has existed since 2002 mind you. Their computers are mistakenly awarding good-behavior credits. They know they have this problem and have done nothing to put double checks in place. People are now dying because of government incompetence.

Officials with the state Attorney General’s Office learned of the mistake in 2012 and advised the Corrections agency to fix the software before trying to recalculate the sentences by hand, documents released late Wednesday revealed. Corrections officials have admitted the agency delayed solving the problem 16 times and ultimately never fixed it.

The AG didn’t find the problem through government intervention or ingenuity. The only reason the officials discovered the error was the family of a crime victim learned the offender responsible was being released too early. The government didn’t even know. There’s no one home in these government agencies.

Typical government workers – no one is accountable and yet they are responsible for deaths. Because they didn’t pull the trigger and they’re bureaucrats, they think they are innocents. Mistakes are forgivable but deliberate malfeasance leading to deaths should be punishable by firing at least.

Thirteen years later, Gov. Jay Inslee has taken immediate action to fix the problem. How much faith should people have in that?

Every rock you turn over in the government exposes more incompetence, fecklessness and malfeasance.
