Carney: Obama Implementing Executive Actions Following Navy Yard Shooting

President Barack Obama on Monday wearily lamented “yet another mass shooting,” this time in the nation’s capital where the debate that raged earlier this year over tightening firearms laws has stalled amid opposition from gun-rights advocates.

The shooting at the Washington Navy Yard came a week after voters recalled two Colorado legislators who supported tougher gun measures, illustrating the strong political headwinds faced by lawmakers seeking to respond to the violence.

Obama, for one, has been powerless to get legislation passed despite a string of mass shootings during his presidency.

In the wake of the shooting at the Navy Yard, Obama spokesman Jay Carney said the president is implementing executive actions and reiterated his commitment to strengthening gun laws, including expanding background checks to sales online and at gun shows.

If he does, Congress should declair to the SC it is unconstitutional and the NRA should occupy the SC building until they say it is unconstitutional.

Our biggest problem is that the republikrats will sit by and let him do it. Oh, they may piss and moan but they won't do anything to stop it. Giving guns to al Qaeda is treason but what does the "leadership" of the republikrat party do about it???

Bob,  You are so correct and truthful.... the head of the House is complicit and red-faced GUILTY just as the long legged mac daddy, Obama is!  What a shame that all those cowards let US down in the end.  Will they all get their 20 pieces of silver too? ? 

Okay Colorado it is time to go to Washington and fired these so called representatives of the American people.  Colorado shouldm't be the only ones going to the WH.  It needs to be millions and millions of people that go to the WH and fire everyone of them with major fines and prison sentence.

Ditto! Also rescind the Obama/holder policy that minorities will not be charged with crimes! That D.C. shooter had a license to own a gun--Duh! What in the hellsbells kind of background checks are being done? That perp had 3 arrests for using a gun maliciously before this dreadful crime! If he was not dead obama would let him go home just like previous Law Enforcement did!


Thank you! The washington morons will never put 2 and 2 together. They still haven't figured out what an assault weapon is. I wish Daisey would make a BB gun that looked like an AK. Feinstein would shit her granny panties. 

As I said before, they need to be placed in a home for senile Senators!


Win the 2014 mid terms for the Republicans and within a year we impeach Obama and turn our country around. He'll be gone with his ideology!

Why wait until the 2014 elections. The election process is so corrupted that there would be no fair election. It is imperative that we the people act now.

They will never impeach Obama--they are cowards!

Yes they will and they have tried numerous times only to be shut down by the senate. The senate must give the OK and since the democrats control it they refuse to give the go ahead. Get the republicans control of the senate and congress and get some popcorn and sit and watch.

With some luck we might get to see Obama in prison!





Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
