Jan 15, 2013|

The Obama Administration has readied 19 executive actions which will move unilaterally on gun control. This will be the administration’s first definitive statement regarding gun control after last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Howie wondered is President Obama exceeding the power granted him by the Constitution by unilaterally outlawing a right guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

President Obama has decided to issue these nineteen executive orders because he realizes that he couldn't get any of this legislation through congress. Now why -- beginning of this legislation through congress. It's because the American people are not split 5050. S they you know this is one of those things should name they may tell law. They you know you know the -- there's certain questions that study ebitda at our command warned to be answered truthfully. You know you -- know you want to appear to be a good person you know did you cheat on your spouse now. Do you what do you read newspaper editorials oh yes yes I do. You know this -- another one to use do you why do you support the NRA now the NRA has been -- committee has been not turn into a ball he can. The last few weeks but it's been turned into a -- he meant by certain by a certain cadre of. Obama. Foreign agitators like piers Morgan and Martin Bashir along with the let no crisis. Be wasted people like a Rahm Emmanuel. Who was obviously no absolutely. No clue what to do about the gun situation. Because -- look what is it -- what's going on in his own city of Chicago with these type. These stringent gun control laws -- -- it's a slaughter house. There were other -- murders every night I can read you about 23 murders and eight in Chicago. More on the weekends and the -- be the point I mean after a while you're you why you -- just get. In -- -- west you know -- the -- these these kind of lost don't work they don't work they hassled content. They they hassle law abiding citizens that's all there about I don't. -- have Krauthammer on though Obama's press conference. Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer okay Charles let's start with the debt ceiling talk and what you just heard from the press. Well the tone of this address was quite remarkable. He talked about Republicans being suspicious. Of social security and Medicare revealed this song that you -- hear from him and then he added. And suspicious of government's role in making sure that impoverished children get food. That's a little bit over the top. That's essentially a liable. For many civilians but I'll tell you know I'd love hanging out at congressional. Picnic with these people who won a star Americans. Children that's of interest thing invitation. And Manny and he did this they -- it over and over and there's him he must have gone through the same. Idea fifteen times and saying it is all about honoring our obligations. Paying the bills that we've already. Incurred. But what he said seven years ago as a senator. Was that raising the cadets to his indication of how. Quote we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries. To finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. The point of raising the debt ceiling is to allow us to continue to borrow. That's the essence of what it's about he never he talked about their debt ceiling a dozen times now -- he used the word. Borrow. And what it means is we are now getting continue to borrow for every dollar the government spends. We only sixty cents of it. Come from our taxes the rest 40%. He's borrowed money in the region are Republicans are objecting to say. We have to start to reduce the forty cents and he's pretending as if if you even think about that. You're just showing the credit of the United States who have it. I -- of the yesterday when he said we're not a deadbeat nation what if we're not a deadbeat nation what exactly are our enemy if if form a deadbeat nation surely were forward deadbeats I mean there's their can be -- that that's on even an arguable point isn't. You know. Mean the heat he's done his best to increase the number of dead beats in the country you know making it easy to get on all these all these phony baloney welfare programs. 187746943221877469. 4322. -- time to drop the AARP and join the NRA. And ever belong to the AARP they starts and restart it was fifty years all I never I was never interest at them miked.

No I took the AARP eight sandy okay. She is so what's a drop out of the AARP and join the IR AI so I never was in the are pretty. Gun buybacks don't reduce gun violence either this is for mom Mary Katharine Ham. USA today covers the latest outbreak of gun buybacks propping opera popping up or across the nation in the wake of Newtown. Become -- flashy local news reports B -- rich with antique weapons and other cast off weapons was confiscation would've been great for programming stage cultural -- but not modern crime waves. They had -- among the least effective ways to reduce gun violence they say targeted police patrols intervention efforts with known criminals and to a lesser extent tougher gun laws all work better than buybacks. Let's see. Buyback programs tend to attract people who -- least likely to commit crimes and to retrieve guns -- least likely to be used in crimes and never ended that's another thing -- the reversed as the buyback programs Aminu. It's doesn't common sense tell you that you know if you have a piece of crap opened the addict that you know hasn't has hasn't been fired cents a the end of world war two and you can get twenty year fifty bucks for her gift card for under box with the local grocery store target. -- gonna take it down there. On the other hand if you -- -- they are fifteen days it's worth a lot more than 400 box of a -- of a gift card at target earlier local supermarket. So you're not gonna bring it down. Scott and others say violent criminals the people do most of the shooting and killing steer clear buyback programs and -- trying to make some quick cash by selling a weapon they don't want anymore. That means buyback campaigns often end up with hunting rifles -- world revolver from somebody's attic and what automatic weapons from the truck for criminals car. Buyback in Tucson Arizona last week collect about 200 firearms many of them older and -- ended in the in return for about 101000 dollars worth -- grocery gift cards. What a waste of money. A few hundred feet away gun dealers set up tables and offered cash for any guns in good enough condition to resell. Every guy on the -- was an old on the assault weapons. Tom that you watch the event told the associated press and taking weapons off the street. But does this woman says cat Mary Katharine -- But it showy and effective in XP expensive and gives organizers that deep sense of moral superiority when you've got all that who actually needs to reduce. Its. But don't look now the editorial page team of one of new Jersey's biggest newspaper longest in this is the star ledger which is probably why they got that targeted by O'Keefe. Pre pre in his in his -- that campaign. Is pro gun buy back its biggest newspapers his programs buy buy back because it makes them feel so good so there in anyone thinks differently probably just wants quote. It paramilitary weapon manufactured with the express purpose of shredding humans to death. -- -- -- Who thinks the writer can actually point out a gun that. With pat expressed purpose in line up and explain why it's different than any other semi automatic handgun. Of a similar caliber. But again it's not about it's about getting guns it's about feeling morally secure here. That's what this is all about it's about feeling good about oneself it's about locking down one's nose at the rednecks in the crackers. In the born again it's who. The bitter cling yours with their guns in their target ranges -- they -- -- you know the people who work at the newspapers are so much better than they are. 18774694322207.

They'll be Exide Albert blinded or something if they're not the if they're not properly polite to Padilla. To his highness but you know you'd think somebody would have the stones to ask him a real question at some point. Like about the fact that you know he said that that the debt ceiling it was a what was something that shouldn't be raised at all times we've got that went a bit. Got the story from -- -- region quote we come back 18774694322. Howie -- Having some delicious challenge food storage frequently enough. The next tax increases of the Wall Street Journal. You monitor read something into your finished showing -- nom I'm efficiency and the unfinished. The next tax hike is -- law and Obama already wants more. The president even invoke the American people to support his third new tax hikes saying Monday that. They don't think it's Smart to protect and those corporate loopholes and tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans rather than rebuild our roads and our schools. You already rest. But wait. He was President Obama who insisted that the recent packs will be loaded with tens of billions of dollars worth of traditional. Corporate loopholes. Including for his billionaire buddies in the bust out green industry energy and business too bad no one from the white house press corps asked about that contradiction. Maybe next presidency. Richard Durbin of Illinois explain that the tax loophole should be closed because quote. We forgo about one point two trillion a year in the tax code money that otherwise would go to the government on quote as if at all launched on calcium in the first place. But they're now they're talking about the going after the middle class. Former Vermont governor and Democratic Party chairman Howard -- conceded in December on MSNBC that this meat may seem like heresy but the truth is everybody needs to pay more taxes not just the rich. How -- the BT card recipients of the illegal aliens. They don't pay their fair share I want a Democrat but come out and say. We need the bombs to start paying their fair share to rather than leaching off of off of the people who work for a living. The Obama tax proposal would tax the rich was a quote good start he had -- but we're not gonna get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board. He's right about soaking the rich even if they taxed 100% of every dollar earned by every American who were more than 500000 dollars in 2000 that. The Fed would only take in one point 29 trillion or not much more than the entire 2012 deficit. More and more liberals are picking up this -- in admitting that the middle class has to be taxed because that's where about Monty has its. We told you this. We told you this a lot of people -- why you know everybody here everybody in this audience knows it. But our low information voter friends that now did. There were too busy watching American Idol. They couldn't figure it out for themselves. They thought it was only the millionaires and billionaires who were going to be taxed. Now now they realized they are the millionaires and billionaires. And this is just the Social Security payroll taxes just the beginning. Richard you're next with power cargo ahead Richard. I we. The buyback program may be over tomorrow. Hypothetically if Obama tried for a really grave. Infringement of this Second Amendment could it be impeached immediately. Well. He's not going to be impeached I mean they can talk about impeaching him and eldest congressman from Texas stockman has talked about impeaching him by. Are they really I mean and you know they have a Republican majority in the house but it's not it's not that. Significant I mean you did that peel off a few Republican votes. And then you -- over the senate just 55 Democrats you need to convict the guy in and remove him from office you would need 66 people in the senate. And even if you got all 45 Republicans should still only 21 out of the 55 Democrats what are the odds are getting those people Richard. All right so then you don't think that's the reason why I don't want not a period. While I'm just saying he's he's not gonna get he's not going to be thrown out of office for -- us. Well it -- afford to. Apparently done nothing yet it don't. Right or for anything right exactly. Probably does so we're -- -- -- pro life. Well not polite for four years I hope I mean you know the other the congressman from the congressman from New York as I entered Tuesday. He built to work appeal I think it's the 22 amendment which were restricts the the president the two terms but that's like an ankle when he where either. So why bubble boy not gonna get -- we look they they couldn't get rid of Clinton and they had Clinton dead to rights committing a felony he committed perjury under all. You know how. And did the Democrats refused to convict them. If it could be if you pay if perjury a felony is not a high crime than what the hell is. Thanks for the call. Lee your next with how we cargo -- An Alley I kept saying that there aren't during the campaign I can understand why the Republicans weren't beaten -- -- Mark. You can't pay for the government would just the ones are married and that 2% people. You have to climb down into the middle class. And get flat the deadbeat will be paid eventually when everything goes kept up because their programs are gonna get -- said that in the until they just don't know. Yeah they are gonna they are gonna have to pay and then and then you know what there's going to be there's going to be trouble in the streets when -- because of the you know what they're gonna they're just gonna come out into the working neighbor -- we work in people's neighborhoods. And I just demand some of them are gonna go to work that's for damn sure. I took command and I think I heard Paul Ryan say at one time and that debate when he looked in the camera and said and lucked out because they're coming for you next. And that was no other mention that they did act like you're gonna be the Warren Buffett. And you know and everybody else that would give billionaire well. And then end -- Much more because they have and -- the loophole that can get around a little. Don't have income either they have blood they've already made their income I mean -- Jay Rockefeller and John Kerry pay a much lower rate on acts that you or I do. I absolutely felt. Anybody who thinks they're not coming for them next it's just deluded because our. I know I know what they are still deluded they had a lot of -- and -- half of Dumars told -- they're just the idiots. I don't know what the -- bottom 18774694322. You know I know they say we get the government we deserve but you know some of us some of -- can can read some of us cannot -- it's almost pay attention. And we we're not here you know we all -- the poor girl get the government we deserve some of us Cingular don't deserve it. The government we've got dusty your next with how we cargo had dusty. That are wondering. If -- crop of do over again. Do you think you can walk -- a police station and I talked to bulletproof glass will -- Why I think -- -- step down. I don't thinks that's. That's again. That's a good point I was I was at one of those police station you're absolutely right about that there like armed fortresses. I just dropped off -- -- application or carry permit application you are a lot of detectives say he course. Brought up around four in. And -- -- that apple couldn't do it to us why it's smoldering chemical. No you don't a huge number of people who have off firearms legal firearms in this country are our police officers and why why do you think that is is. A dusty do you think it's because they know who's out there on the streets. Because there -- welcome every day of the week and they know they're not gonna give up their damn guns. What can I help them much of the eastern I don't lock the door behind me when I'm home. I'm not overly concerned that my -- my dog in my I want. Yes someone says someone texted me and said as he has a sign that says for forget the dog be where have owner. Ted thanks for the call busting Tim you're next with how we cargo had them. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Why can't afford a much. That's a good point I used to wonder why George Bush was so concerned about that I keeping the -- the I Iraqi Syrian border secure so the most Syrians could. Infiltrate where it whereas. Mexicans were allowed to just come into the United States -- basically a kilo a killer well. You know. That's a way that's a way it's always been they've been more concerned about the Middle East than they have about the the home front -- you know. -- a Mormon a lot more Americans have been killed by illegal aliens in the last eleven years that have been killed by terrorists.
