Gallup: 54% Disapprove Of President Obama’s Gun Policies


According to a Gallup poll released yesterday, Obama has something less than majority approval for his gun control platform:


Meanwhile, Democrats are bringing the friends and family of shooting victims to the State of the Union speech. I wonder why Republicans don’t rebut that stunt by bringing people who survived shootings or robberies or other sorts of crimes because they were armed? Or were protected by someone who was armed?

    WikiLeaks: Bin Laden’s Body Not Buried At Sea

    Posted on February 12, 2013 by Conservative Byte

    The body of Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was not buried at sea, according to leaked emails of intelligence firm Stratfor, as revealed by WikiLeaks.
    Stratfor’s vice-president for intelligence, Fred Burton, believes the body was “bound for Dover, [Delaware] on [a] CIA plane” and then “onward to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda [Maryland],” an email says.
    The official version is that the body of Al-Qaeda’s top man, who was killed by a US raid in Pakistan on May 2, 2011, was buried at an undisclosed location at sea in a proper Muslim ceremony.
    “If body dumped at sea, which I doubt, the touch is very Adolph Eichman like. The Tribe did the same thing with the Nazi’s ashes,” Burton commented in another email. Eichman was one of the masterminds of the Holocaust by Nazi Germany. He was captured by Mossad agents in Argentina and, tried in Israel, found guilty and executed in 1962. His body was cremated and his ashes were scattered at sea over the Mediterranean.

    Merle ,

    Barack Hussein
    Obama has launched an ambitious plan to indoctrinate and train the U.S. military
    to fight people like you and like me.

    Obama’s Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy just released a
    report “warning” of the danger of “anti-federalist” Tea-Party type activists,
    and how the military must prepare to battle them!

    send faxes to the Republican members of the House of Representatives
    IMMEDIATELY, and demand that they defund this unconstitutional military
    indoctrination center.

    Obama is training the
    U.S. military to turn on American citizens!

    fascist report called “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s
    Violent Far-Right,” by Dr. Arie Perliger, Director of Terrorism Studies at West
    Point, specifically warns of the rising militancy of so-called
    “anti-federalists,” that embrace ideas like “civil activism, individual freedoms
    and self-government.”

    like you and like me, doesn’t it?

    The report also
    warns that America is threatened by these “anti-federalists,” who “espouse
    strong convictions regarding the federal government, believing it to be corrupt
    and tyrannical, with a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil and
    constitutional rights.”

    report would be terrifying if it came from some political goon on Mr. Obama’s
    payroll at the White

    However, it’s
    much worse than that. This is what is being taught at West Point. The U.S.
    Military Academy!

    Fax the House
    Republicans NOW, and demand that they shut down this “counter-terrorism center”
    and fire this Dr. Perliger!

    used to be that prospective army officers were taught about Duty, Honor, and

    today, it is all about indoctrinating these future soldiers to take illegal
    orders from Barack Hussein Obama, and impose martial law!

    have to fight back NOW. Few Americans know, or understand, what Barack Hussein
    Obama, Jr., is doing to our military.

    must overwhelm Congress with faxes, right away, before any more army officers
    are trained to believe that the American people are the enemy.

    this moment Barack Hussein Obama is ignoring Congress, and he is continuing his
    illegal policy of killing American citizens abroad with CIA

    at the unconstitutional Department of Homeland Security, his political appointees are purchasing
    tens of millions of rounds of ammunition, in order to quell any “civil
    disturbances” that may arise.

    man is a dictator, and he must be stopped.

    Send your faxes
    to Congress right away. The best way to reign in Barack Obama in, is by
    publicizing what is happening at West Point, and forcing Congress to stop this
    anti-American training.

    please, forward this email to everyone that you know who cares about our
    military, and about stopping Mr. Obama’s evil plans.

    again, this report just issued by West Point declares that anyone who believes
    that the federal government is corrupt, and is violating our individual rights,
    is a danger to the Obama regime and a potential enemy of the U.S.

    Please click
    here to send your faxes.

    If the
    link does not work, copy and paste this full link in a browser

    please, ask everyone you know to do the same. And, while you are at it, please
    add to the effectiveness of your faxes by personally calling your U.S.
    Representative’s office at 202-224-3121. Tell him, or her, to shut down this
    “anti-terrorism center” at West Point.

    And John Brennen is a muslim convert who has been running weapons
    “Fast and Furious” to his Muslim Brotherhood cronies?

    Tom Trento digs up more dirt on John Brennan, outed
    convert to Islam and Muslim Brotherhood operative

    Barack Hussein Obama’s
    next pick for CIA Director, John Brennan, a recently exposed Muslim convert, is
    behind a heavy weapons (MANPADS) and gun running operation to the Muslim
    Brotherhood and al-Qaeda operatives in Syria.

    Listen to John Brennan wax on about the “peace and tolerance” of Islam, even speaking some Arabic and calling Jerusalem “al-Quds,” like his Hamas buddies:

    Former FBI agent John Guandolo incited an Internet buzz this week by accusing John Brennan, President Barack Obama’s nominee to lead the CIA, of secretly converting to Islam while working as the CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia from 1996 to 1999.

    Guandolo’s evidence was scant—largely that Brennan said during a public address that he “marveled at the majesty of the Hajj,” something Guandolo says only could be done as a Muslim inside Mecca, a city that is off-limits to non-Muslims.

    World Net Daily—a website that specializes in reporting on conspiracy theories—took notice of the interview, followed by more mainstream publications and blogs, including The Daily Mail, Al Arabiya, Salon, and The Blaze.

    Ibrahim Hooper, the communications director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told U.S. News that he has no knowledge of Brennan converting to Islam.

    And what info/data base is ole Maxine Waters babblin
    about that Barry is keeping on everyone?
    Check out the video…

    Her district is basically the Watts area of Los Angeles, and Roland Martin said, “The reality is like anything else, you’d better get what you can while Obama’s there because, look, come 2016, that’s it.” Now, what Roland Martin’s saying here is all of you who are looking for prosperity from the government, you better get it and get it now. Get it while you can, get it while Obama’s there, because come 2016, he’s not gonna be there, and then you’re gonna be on your own. You better get what you can get now. And here’s what Maxine Waters said in reply.

    WATERS: Well, you know, I don’t know. And I think some people are missing something here. The president has put in place an organization that contains the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be very, very powerful. That database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before.
