Obama to 'Quickly' Go for Immigration Reform and Gun Control

President Barack Obama will go for immigration reform and gun control this month, the White House tells the left-leaning Huffington Post. Obama's actions will reportedly be done "quickly." Obama glowing

"An Obama administration official said the president plans to push for immigration reform this January. The official, who spoke about legislative plans only on condition of anonymity, said that coming standoffs over deficit reduction are unlikely to drain momentum from other priorities. The White House plans to push forward quickly, not just on immigration reform but gun control laws as well," reports the Huffington Post.

"The timeframe is likely to be cheered by Democrats and immigration reform advocates alike, who have privately expressed fears that Obama's second term will be drowned out in seemingly unending showdowns between parties."

The outlet claims that it is "unclear what type of immigration policies the White House plans to push in January."

I had been saying repeatedly that Amnesty would come within 6 months, and they’re taking guns away to prevent shooting the Criminal Invaders.

THIS JUST IN:

-House Speaker John Boehner accepts Obama`s proposals on gun confiscations and open borders

- Will have up or down votes on all of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid`s bills.

Yes, our Dear Leader is once again fulfilling all those promises he once made to reach across the aisle. NOT!

I was thinking about this today. I don’t think the economy and jobs was ever on the commie ‘RATS list of things that was needing to be fixed. The economy, jobs, “cliffs” etc. was just a distraction. It is and has always been about socialist issues. Gun control, injecting socialism/communism into American life, the destruction of capitalism, “climate change”, gay marriages, DADT, drugs, abortion, illegal aliens, etc. The ‘RATS don’t care a bit about the economy. The Obama regime is about social engineering.

It's going to be very hard to give a d-mn about whether this country lives or dies once it has been transformed from The Shining City on a Hill into banana socialism...when we are no longer a free people, but are just global subjects.

But I guess that is the whole point...isn't it?

No details on what sort of gun control legislation the White House will seek were offered in the article.

Likely because he knows this one will be a bi**h to pass.

Always a rush - always a deadline - always "We have to do this right now"... and then he goes on vacation.

I wish they'd replace Boehner with someone who has a clue. Someone who will tell Barky to back off, we have our own schedule - and it's not yours.

0bama’s foreign immigration policy is the reason Americans should have guns. Increasing the former while reducing the latter? He can take his foreigner finger and shove it up his foreigner azz.

There’s a gun show in our town the last weekend of January (26th & 27th).
It’s already a given the place is gonna packed, so we hope to be there when the doors open.

Question: Could Obama issue some sorta executive order that would take effect prior to that date?

I’m betting there will be an attempt to do whatever retroactive orders he can implement concerning gun shows....

Legalize the invasion of non-Americans and outlaw self defense by Americans.

Quisling had nothing on Obama and the Vichy French had nothing on the RINO Republicans.

Better Immigration/Guns Policy: Give all the immigrants an M16 and ammo and send them back to their countries to settle the issue. All problems solved.

Hussein follows the maxim when your enemy is down, don’t let him up.

We are not in a fighting retreat, we are in a rout. Obama is drunk with power, and not only wants more of it, he wants it all.

Let’s see...

We can’t find and deport 20+ million ILLEGALS so we give them amnesty and a free ride.

But we can find and confiscate 300+ million firearms.

Good luck you friggin no good usurper. You started a war and you will lose!

that should go viral.

The second amendment is to protect the citizens from the politicians.

Schumer’s smarmy look is priceless.

“THIS JUST IN:

Who cares?

The fat-ass Secret Service wouldn’t last 3 minutes on a battlefield.

The fat welfare momma brigade would be more interested in jumbo bags of chips.

And the average weight of homeland security clowns is 400 pounds.

So what’s your point?

How can they enforce closing gun shows or private party purchases? Do it anyway. Resist this tyranny. They will make everything illegal, they can’t rule over innocent men.

OBunga can issue all the executive orders in the world...once he’s out of office the next President can simply strike them down. Unless, of course, someone with standing successfully sues all the way to the Supreme Court, which typically takes at least a year.

Bottom line...hold on to your guns.
