Tonight, President Barack Obama is going to attempt a common magic trick in an attempt to make the Constitutional rights of all Americans disappear:
“We know that the killers in San Bernardino used military-style assault weapons — weapons of war — to kill as many people as they could,” the president said in a video released Saturday. “It’s another tragic reminder that here in America it’s way too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on a gun.”
“Right now, people on the no-fly list can walk into a store and buy a gun. That is insane,” the president said. “If you’re too dangerous to board a plane, you’re too dangerous, by definition, to buy a gun.”
He called on Congress to close the loophole, saying that while the nation may not be able to prevent every tragedy, “at a bare minimum, we shouldn’t be making it so easy for potential terrorists or criminals to get their hands on a gun that they could use against Americans.”
Obama is addressing the nation tonight, and you’re going to see him attempt to say one thing, and do another.
Obama is going to claim that he wants to summarily strip the constitutional rights of Americans citizens and resident aliens on the “no fly” list without due process, in clear violation of the Constitution. He does not have evidence that anyone on this list is about to commit a crime, or the FBI would arrest them. Instead, he’s asking to “Minority Report” them, and strip them of their liberties because they might one day commit crimes.
But it’s even worse that it seems.
