    (Mark Levin has laid out last night what Obama’s plans are should the Republicans hold the line and refuse to increase the debt ceiling. We have been here before, as I found it important to write about two years ago when Obama and the media were considering the unconstitutional and impeachable option of using the 14th Amendment to bypass Congress on the debt ceiling.I felt compelled to partially transcribe Mark’s commentary from last night’s show, because it is very important that we get this information to our Republican members of Congress. I have linked to the relevant articles and podcast...

    At Marion Park on Capitol Hill, two fence gates were chained closed, but one was not, and a group of children played inside. At the Korean War Veterans Memorial, on the Mall, the entrance was blocked with barricades, but visitors just walked around the barriers and entered. At the closed-off National World War II Memorial, two days of assaults by veterans prompted the National Park Service to announce that they had the legal right to be there and would not be barred in the future. Across federal Washington on Wednesday, the government shutdown was leaking badly partly as a...
  • Levin: 'I'll Bring Half a Million People' to WWII Memorial if You Lay 'One Damn Hand' on Veterans

    Conservative talk radio Mark Levin said Wednesday if the Obama administration lays "one damn hand" on any World War II veteran trying to see their memorial that he would bring "half a million people" to it. The Obama administration closed the World War II Memorial as part of the government shutdown and even threatened veterans on Honor Flights with potential arrests if they went past what is being called "Barrycades." "I want to say this loud and clear to the people on Capitol Hill who are listening, to this administration. You lay one damn hand on one of those World...

    TPM ^ | 10-2-2013 | Catherine Thompson
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) released a statement Wednesday faulting the Obama administration for the closure of the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. Cruz's full statement: President Obama is so fixated on forcing Obamacare on the American people that he's even willing to deny World War II veterans the right to access the memorial they have earned through their heroic service. This scenario encapsulates the bigger problem in Washington. President Obama is so set on imposing his destructive, far-left ideology that his government is literally barricading World War II veterans out of their memorial and blocking funding to the...

    Above: National Park Service workers setting up new barricades this morning, around the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.- Yesterday, the Obama Administration got real petty over the partial government shutdown, sending employees to barricade memorial sites around Washington that are normally open 24/7. Thankfully, one group of WWII vets wasn't having ANY of it - removing barricades, with the help of fantastic GOP Reps. like Steve King (R-IA) and others - and refusing to be denied access to THEIR World War II Memorial. Well today, another group of WWII vets plan to do the same thing at the Lincoln Memorial,...

    Twitter photo by Charlie Spiering, the Washington Examiner.The Obama administration is adding more barricades at the World War Two Memorial in Washington, D.C. this morning, according to reporters on the scene.The reinforcements are being put in place apparently to prevent a repeat of yesterday when WWII veterans aided by several Republican Congressmen pushed aside barricades to visit their memorial.Buzzfeed got no response from the White House last night when queried about the administration closing the memorial to veterans.A report last night claimed that the Park Service would arrest veterans who attempt to visit the WWII Memorial.

    Because the American military swears an allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, and not to the President, could Obamas strategy be to strip our Armed Services and cost shift their dollars into an all powerful civilian Army under his command? Two tips coming into CiR this week surprisingly connect just these dots and link these machinations to Obamacare funding. On page 496 of H.R. 3590 is this quote: Assimilating Reserve Corp Officers Into the Regular Corps. . .Effective on the date of enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, all individuals classified as officers in the Reserve (civilian)...

    Obama told Republicans Friday that its a fools errand for them to use the threat of a government shutdown to gut his signature healthcare law, decrying what he called political grandstanding that is hurting the American economy. With Republicans seeing both the looming expiration of government funding and the need to increase the countrys borrowing limit as pressure points to extract political concessions on the healthcare law, the president said bluntly: I said that yesterday and Im gonna repeat it: thats not gonna happen. A lot of what is taking place right now is political grandstanding, Obama told reporters at...

    U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations ^ | Sept. 24, 2013 | U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn
    WASHINGTON Asserting the Senates constitutional role on treaties, U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., ranking member of the Foreign Relations Committee, in a letter today warned the Obama administration against taking any action to implement the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty without Senate advice and consent. The ATT raises significant legislative and constitutional questions. Any act to implement this treaty, provisionally or otherwise, before the Congress provides its advice and consent would be fundamentally inconsistent with the U.S. Constitution, law, and practice, said Corker. Full text of the letter is included below and in the attached document. Dear President Obama,...

    President Barack Obama on Sunday memorialized the victims of the Washington Navy Yard shooting by calling for a transformation in the nations gun laws to address an epidemic of gun violence, saying, Theres nothing inevitable about it. Reprising his role of the nations consoler in chief after yet another mass shooting, Obama said Americans should honor the victims of last Mondays shooting by insisting on a change in gun laws. It ought to obsess us, Obama said. He said no other advanced nation endures the kind of gun violence seen in the United States, and blamed mass shootings in...

    Once again, President Obama is exploiting the tragic deaths from a mass shooting to push his political agenda to control guns. This time, he escalates the rhetoric by blaming Second Amendment advocates for criminals acts. After spending the day on the golf course Saturday, Mr. Obama spoke to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner about his priorities. Referring to Mondays tragic shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, along with the mass murders in Newtown and Aurora in 2012, Tucson in 2011 and shootings in Chicago, he said: As long as there are those who fight to make it as easy...

    The true scope of the anti-firearm crusade of the United Nations, which began more than a dozen years ago, finally is coming into clear focus, as the White House readies to sign the Arms Trade Treaty adopted with U.S. support this past April by the U.N. General Assembly. The reach of this long-term, carefully crafted agenda is truly breathtaking, going far beyond the publicly articulated goals of even the most radical of homegrown gun-control groups. Since the first major U.N. meeting in July 2001, officially launching the so-called Program of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in...

    It has taken the global left nearly 2 decades to usher the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) through the friendly confines of the United Nations. Offered for signature in its final form in June, the Treaty which purports to establish common international standards for regulating the trade in conventional arms, really is as dangerous to the right of Americans to keep and bear arms as 2nd Amendment supporters have claimed since the Obama Regimespecifically, Hillary Clintonbegan the push for the Treatys eventual ratification several years ago. (1) The ATT was deliberately written in broad, general terms throughout most of its text....

This is very strategic timing considering Congress is on a 5 week vacation lasting thru the month of August!

We have the home fax numbers of every Senator so while they are absent from the Capitol we...

    President Obama is quietly moving forward with gun control regulations. A Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives(ATF) Final Rule published Tuesday in the Federal Register and a news release issued last Friday by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) are recent developments ignored by the mainstream media even though Vice President Joe Biden announced last week that the administration would be using executive orders to advance gun control goals following a Senate battle that could not muster the votes to do so legislatively. President Obama has side-stepped Congress by implementing portions of the UN Small Arms Trade...
