OC-based Tea Party: Impeach Obama Over Gun Control Executive Orders ... or Benghazi

Before President Barack Obama just announced 23 executive orders he will issue and a $500 million package and changes in law he will seek from Congress in the wake of the mass shooting in Connecticut that killed 20 elementary schoolchildren, the Laguna Woods-based California Tea Party called for his impeachment if he pushed any gun control.

Of course, the so-called "grass-roots" movement had already demandedi the president's ouster over the tragedy in Benghazi. And to think, Barry was only popularly re-elected two months ago and will not even been inaugurated until Monday.

Makes one wonder how the California Tea Party would have reacted had it been around in 1983, when the Beirut barracks bombing that killed 241 American servicemen happened on President Ronald Reagan's watch. Or the 1990s, when the by then former president and conservative icon Reagan supported various gun control measures, including the Brady Bill and assault weapon bans.

The executive orders Obama unveiled that require no congressional approval include actions to improve background checks of gun buyers, share that information among law enforcement and instruct the Centers for Disease Control to research causes and prevention of gun violence. The president also indicated he will nominate acting director Todd Jones as director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Meanwhile, Obama called on Congress to ban military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and further close loopholes in the gun sale background check system. He also called on the public to hold the feet of members of Congress to the fire to enact those measures.

Dick Palmer
Via an earlier TeaParty.org email, the California Tea Party, whose events are organized by Dick Palmer of the Laguna Woods Tea Party Sentinels, rubber-stamps a threat Monday afternoon by U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) to file articles of impeachment against Obama if he instituted gun control measures with an executive order.

Just under that in the email is the demand that Obama be impeached over Benghanzi. The case is made by calling the president a "fraud," a "rat," "unqualified," "utterly inept," "a danger to our country," a liar (multiple times), a "killer" and treasonous because he provided "aid and comfort" to radical Islam enemies of the state.

"America deserves better than being Obama's whore," insists the Benghazi impeachment portion of the email that you can read in full on the next page. What's that? You don't want to? Oh, so you're not a patriot? Found another one, Mildred, take down his name!

Naturally, the message goes on to seek money from supporters to pay for the "fax blast" to U.S. congressmen and senators.

[Hi OCWeekly. Check this out - what I discovered on the amazing web.]


THE REAL CREATORS OF THE SUBURBS
 
 ( This paper is what I experienced while trapped in a large US city. BTW, Obama now wants to move "disadvantaged" folks into "better" areas. Since he's an expert on where rich Hollywood Jews live, he could "diversify" them with the L.A. homeless. He could also change Beverly Hills into Burka Hills! Is this the "change" Obama has promised?)
 
    The suburbs are booming, but not fast enough. Yessir, you ghetto folks
 in inner cities have started a good thing, but there are still lots of acres
 outside the cities without any houses on them. So you've gotta move into
"untouched" city blocks and do the following:
    Throw trash everywhere. You'll insure that your friends who pick up trash
 and distribute free rat poison packets will keep their jobs. And folks can
  predict the weather by the direction the trash is blowing!
    Walk down the street. Better yet, rhythm down it. And when I say street
 I don't mean sidewalk. Save sidewalks for your friends on cycles. Besides,
 it's hard to fit many cursing, screaming, drinking, pot-smoking kids on a
 sidewalk, and it's also hard to spot keys and other things left in cars when
 you're walking on a sidewalk!
    When walking down a street, turn your head when you hear a car coming
 and stare at the driver. For all you know, it might be one of your enemies
 out to get you. On the other hand, it might be only your neighbor and all
 that hateful staring might make him want to move out.
    Be sure to beget lots of unloved, unsupervised, unwashed two-legged
 "Obama welfare meal tickets" - either through wedlock or (preferably) out of
 wedlock. And let them often ring doorbells, begging for money.
    Turn quiet streets into noisy jungles. Have a blast - a
 long blast with your car horn under your neighbor's window at
 3:00 a.m. Let folks know who the real honkies are! Blow your horn when (1)
 you see the police coming (2) you want to buy some dope (3) you want to sell
 some dope (4) for any other reason. Play your stereo so loudly that folks can't
 hear sirens going to the latest holdup or arson. Be noisy, man, noisy!
    Be cruel to animals, especially "man's best friend." Tie your dog on a
 short chain under a blazing sun with no water or food or love or license or
 dog shots. Make him as mean as you are. Better yet, let your dog run loose.
 Neighbors love to find freshly killed cats (after hearing their screams) and
 other goodies on their lawns. Pit one dog against another in bloody "canine
 cockfights" while friends lounge on car hoods and cheer and make bets! And
 what madness is it where folks move out and abandon pets in the house,
 leaving them nothing to eat but their own droppings? This happens often in the
 ghetto, and almost no one will help the animals.
    Keep a good supply of Saturday Night Specials - also Sunday, Monday,
 Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday Night Specials. Your criminal
 presence will improve your neighbor's light bill; when he isn't watching you
 at night (with his lights off), he will be able to read books at night by
 the light of the police helicopter searchlights!
    Here's more insanity: Uncle Sam spends millions of our tax money to
 move you into our neighborhoods where we lose much when we sell our homes. 
 So you have your nerve when you glare and swear at us when we don't move 
 out quickly; but you're the reason we can't find good buyers! I really wonder
 what you and Uncle Sam will do when lots of folks move to the wilderness and
 live off the land and consequently don't have to pay taxes to support such
 sickness!
    Finally, spread the rumor that all of your troubles are associated with
 skin, even though you and I know that your problem isn't skin. It's sin!!!
    What makes a ghetto? It's not the paint on a house (or lack of it) but all
 of you two-legged pains in the neck!

 Can't Cover Up."

tea party--deja vu

from jesses cafe and the newbook Hitlerland

The fear of the Socialists and the Communists in particular is a key driver for the events of that time, and is not to be discounted.  The cynical dealing and irresoluteness of the Weimar politicians is another factor.  There were open fights in the streets on a regular basis, although they were often surprisingly 'orderly' as this book relates. Some of the passages are quite amusing for those familiar with the German penchant for orderliness, even in the midst of urban warfare.

The capacity for self-delusion and a bad compromise is amazing, especially during periods of confusion, fear, and distraction. And the moral base in Germany at that interwar period was already notoriously relativistic and given to occultism, odd theories, and Nietzchean extremes.  And after war, hyperinflation, and a new Depression, their spirit and will to resist evil was simply exhausted, especially when it was backed by systematic terror and force.

We ought not to be too critical of those people, many of the Americans included, who did not see the worst coming. Did you see the recent financial collapse coming, and what has followed? Do you even understand it yet? History may be amazed at your ignorance. And yet all the signs of trouble were there during the period from 1999 to 2007. 

Some people were warning of the credit bubble, the imbalanced financial sector, and widespread fraud.  And the American people were distracted by a 'war on terror,' and not the collapse of their lives and savings after the decimation from a brutal world war that left the flower of their youth dead, crippled, or broken.

And then in Germany there was another Crash, and the onset of Great Depression, and the people thought, no, not again. Anything is better than this.And so the bargain with the devil was made, and after a brief blaze of false glory, hell followed.

This is not to excuse anything that was done, or permitted to happen. Far from it. But it is to place this sort of tragedy within its human context, and to remind us that we are all capable of such confused cowardice and acquiescence in the face of evil.  We must remain steadfast and resolute against it, especially before resistance demands the type of heroism of which few are capable. 

The consensus of those who met Hitler was that he was a most ordinary person, with little charisma or appeal.  Dorothy Thompson called him 'the very prototype of the Little Man.'  He seemed nondescript, but inwardly mad, illogical and ineffective, and they were incredulous that he could rise to power. 

A key tenet of the Nazis was the rejection of objective fact and reason in favor of the passions of 'the blood' and of instinct.  Truth was not an impartial consideration or serious limitation to conclusion and action.  That is a familiar refrain amongst ideologues and the more extreme elements of both left and right on the political continuum.

There are a few heroic figures in this book, and prominent among them is the Pulitzer prize winning journalist Edgar Ansel Mowrer, whom I had never heard about before this, which is a shame. I will let you read about him for yourself. 

I had not realized how badly the prospects of the National Socialist party had fallen in the years after Hitler's imprisonment for the abortive putsch and before his sudden rise to power as chancellor.  They were essentially done.  But they served as a purpose as a cat's paw for those wealthy bankers and industrialists who feared the Communists and Socialists, and for cynical Weimar pols who were too busy fighting amongst themselves to see the rising threat of fascism.

Joe Provino, your guns/cars analogy really doesn't work in this case. Michael McCracken is right. There are certain types of vehicles that are not permitted on most surface streets. Much like guns, there are regulations in place to make driving safer. Joe, I would also like to point out the hypocrisy of your previous statement. You started out by saying "I don't believe law abiding citizens should walk freely around with automatic weapons", but you went on to say that you don't think someone should get to pick and choose what gun is best for you to utilize should you have the need to. You can't have it both ways. What if someone decides that they do need to carry around an automatic weapon? I would also like to know what makes you feel your own personal protection needs are in any way even remotely close to those of the POTUS and his family. Are you running a country, hated by millions, and received dozens of death threats on a daily basis?

Wow, all that with only a few spelling errors and a dozen gramatical errors! The teabaggers have really stepped up their game.

BTW, Matt, he issued 4 executive orders. Not 23. His plan has 23 points, most of which are legislative and therefore require approval from congress. Anyway, nice article. I like the local take on a national issue. If people like this Dick and the NRA keep shouting at the top of their lungs, we should have a comprehensive gun control act in place by 2014.

Don't mistake me for some redneck hillbilly who thinks I should roll around in an old pickup with a .50 cal machine gun mounted to the top while I'm sippin PBR and chewing tobacco..I'm more educated than that. I don't believe law abiding citizens should walk freely around with fully automatic weapons...there's no need. But keep in mind that the POTUS' children are guarded by men who carry fully auto sub compact machine guns, plus the sidearm to protect his family...and he thinks that me having a "Semi automatic rifle" is a little too much? I can hunt, sport shoot, and defend myself with an AR-15.....I can defend myself and my family with my handgun too, yes..but it doesn't mean that someone gets to pick and choose what gun is best for me to utilize should I have the need to...it like them telling you what car to drive...just on a broader scale.....read the 2nd amendment...it's not meant for hunting rifles... At the end of the day, I respect people who don't "like" guns, or decide to not own a gun...that's they're right 100%...and I fully respect it...I choose to own a gun, partly because I can..and yes because it's my right to keep and bear arms....I don't need a bazooka or a freakin Uzi...it's the misconception that the media presents that these AR-15's are weapons of war and this and that...lol...no...that's not the case..just educate yourself about a topic.....I have friends and even some family members who choose to not want to own firearms...and that's fine...I just hope they don't ever find themselves in a situation where one is needed to protect life...better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it...I see no problem with the government trying to push gun education and safety...that's a great idea..but there's no need to restrict anymore....that's my opinion. Good evening to you all....and for the record..I respect everyone's opinions and beliefs..that's what makes America good..the chance to say your peace and let others say theirs..

@Don Mexico....but it's perfectly ok to sit and make a statement about "gun nuts should be shot"....excuse me for the error in my grammar...I guess that's not really idiotic of you to say that someone should be shot and killed for being an enthusiast...right? Please feel free to retort...because you basically said that a) I'm a "gun nut" and should be shot and killed, and b) I used bad grammar when I addressed you..You sir, are the upstanding citizen here..forgive me please

Do you suppose that if a real Director of ATF had been appointed a few years ago we would not be in the immediate need of new rules? Still, few laws already on the 'books' are enforced. In fact, to get perps to plead Guilty, the enforcers here drop the Gun charges. Hell, all I do is Own a few guns and I'm labeled as a T-partier.

gun nuts should be shot. i don't care what these dumb fucks say, but there is no reason to have an assault weapon to defend yourself. you're not in fuckin' iraq or beirut. a handgun or a shotgun should be sufficient for your fuckin' needs. also, the law should require every dipshit to pass a mental stability test and be trained on how to actually use a firearm BEFORE they can purchase it. why are you people so fuckin' stupid and against simple shit like this?! stop being stupid, people!

I see no reason for a civilian to have certain types of ammunition. Rifles are to hunt with, pistols are for protection and Ak47's and high capacity magazines are for people who want to do massive damage to other people. Why else would you buy a high capacity magazine?

@Joe Provino Obama also sends his daughters to a school that is 2/3 white, not the 99% black and 'Hispanic' DC public schools. Wonder why that is...

BobLoblawsLawBlog

The First Family needs protection. To deny that is to deny reality. To deny that the AR-15 is a weapon of war is also to deny reality. Eugene Stoner designed the AR-15 for the military. The only practical difference between the AR-15 and the M-16/M-4 is that there is no selector switch option for full-auto or burst. That's not a big difference anyway because military training doctrine heavily discourages fully automatic fire (decreased accuarcy, wastes ammo). ARs AKs and other rifles designed for military uses have no practical application for hunting or self defense. If you use one to hunt, you suck at it and should stick to fishing (no dynamite). If you use it for home defence, these weapons and the rounds commonly used for them over-penetrate and will go through your target, the wall behind him and through your neighbor's wall. There is no civillian need for high capacity magazines (10+ rounds) either. Please educate yourself about THIS topic.

Because he's rich and the f-ing president and he can probably send his daughters to any school he wants. Do you honestly think the most powerful man in the world will send his kid(s) to an inner-city public school? At least he recognizes the best interests of his children are not political pawns to be played with. Would you jeapordize your kids future to prove a point?

@BobLoblawsLawBlog Americans have the right to bear the standard 'weapon of war' carried by an infantryman. That's the the 'militia' stuff in the second amendment. Read the militia act of 1791 to find out what they were talking about. You don't like that, fine, but you are going to have to change the Constitution, esp. given recent gun control decisions by the Supreme Court.

BobLoblawsLawBlog
BobLoblawsLawBlog

Really? Do you honestky think that the 1791 law that authorizes the federal government to conscript men (18-45) authorizes assault rifles? I hope you are not a lawyer. United States v. Miller allows for limitations on the types of weapons available for personal use and sale in the US. The 1994 assault weapon ban was constitutional, remember? Personal possesion of military hardware is not guaranteed. That's why these militia groups don't have Ahbrams tanks, Apache Helicopters and nuclear subs with Polaris missiles.
