NRA President to Jay Severin: President Obama not upholding oath of office

Republicans have been throwing the ‘I’ word around in the halls of Congress recently. But has President Obama gone so far off the rails that he has warranted an impeachment trial? Blaze Radio host Jay Severin talks with the NRA President about just how far over the line Obama has gone.

    Obama should have been impeached with Fast and Furious. Now we have this latest power grab and violations of his oath of office, in addition to the arms-smuggling to terrorists, the matter of Benghazi and so much more.

    The problem is that, even if the House passed articles of impeachment, Reid will ensure that they never make it to the floor of the Senate.

    This being the case, we should get rid of Harry Reid also.  Actually, the entire obomo administration should be sent down the river in a boat with NO oars.

    Rush Limbaugh posed the question:  Why is Obama provoking the American people.  My answer is:  My research into Barack Obama has led me to the conclusion that POTUS Obama decided early-on that American’s were not fair to him, and his family (who ever they are).  America was unfair to his father’s home country, Kenya.  America was unfair to his mother, his grandparents and to others he respected.  Obama became an avenger; a Community Organizer.
    We have all been entertained by the following movie plot:  Some horror is perpetrated, by some criminal organization, against the hero’s family, so the hero goes on an vendetta against the “guilty organization,” and systematically takes them down.  This observer does not know what event triggered the Avenger Obama.  Perhaps he was a victim of racial prejudice, prior to the Civil Rights Act or his mom could not afford the clothes he wanted, when he was a teenager. Whatever it was, that event (or events) affected him and established his mission in life; POTUS Obama’s every move is driven by an obsession.  So, like a B-movie, starring Steven Seagal, Obama has set his mission to ultimately destroy the “criminal organization,” that Avenger Obama has determined to be the United States of America.  If he alienates everyone, ruins careers, foments rebellion, causes a revolt or triggers World Wars, so-be-it. The pattern is set, we have all been witness to this ultimate revenge movie before, witness:  Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.  But, like Lemmings’ we, the uninformed, will follow this type of cult figure off the proverbial cliff, to our own doom and destruction.

    Obama did not swear to uphold the oath of office he swore at the oath

    Obama is NOT going to be impeached and he will never resign !   How this disaster plays out is anyones guess.    Congress can’t even fix the mess in the Post Office and you want them to fix THIS ??  Forget that, it’s up to citizens.

    well based on the news report, if they decide to impeach the President they need to add the VP as well, considering how hard he has been pushing the very things that have been bringing up the impeachment process to begin with.

     So the boy from Kenya strikes again, of course, he gained his access to power, by taking cuts in front of the line of all those other millions of African American, whose sweat and tears searched for freedom, who’s raised voice helped build this nation to what it is today and by the way, who have also come to realize, that these United States of America, is the only nation on the face of the entire earth, where all men and women, of all ethnic backgrounds, can achieve their dreams for success – dreams never thought possible in other less developed nations – especially in Africa!

    Where is the outcry from America’s blacks, who have been duped by the ‘bastard boy from Kenya’, a man-child who from his youth, has been on a mission from “his fathers dreams” to be accepted by his poverty stricken peers. Give away American wealth faster than it can be replaced to all less fortunate nations on the earth, who cares, what ever happened to all the hard work and earned respect of black America, what happens when all the money runs dry, what ever happened to reparations – you know, fifty acres and a mule. What about the achievements and the dreams of Dr King and where was Obama back then, oh that’s right, he was ever busy being tutored in the art of the hatred of America, taught to him by radical extremists hell bent on the destruction of the shinning city on a hill.

    Obama is not American. He may have a birth certificate, but where was he when black America was on the front-lines fighting for the rights of all Americans. I’d say by now, they have earned their keep, but this fly-by-night-wonder-from-Kenya has not. Obama has stripped all American’s, including blacks, from their prize of what is naturally theirs by birth. Obama is using and taking advantage of them to achieve his ultimate goal of the destruction of America, only to give its wealth away to peasant lands – people who do not deserve it.

    Black America has been placed in the heavy yoke of slavery once again….not by the white man…but from the cleaver duping of one of your own. Wake-up black America, or are you too ignorant to see through the colored lens of racism that you so frequently thrust on the backs of white’s?

    Step by step, Obama is stripping our rights away, all of us from being free. This gun grab is just the latest round of many planed attacks coming in the next four years. At this rate….America will be no more – then Obama’s dreams will be complete.

    “We” Texans don’t do the lemming thing and we follow no leaders.  ‘Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may.’  And we ain’t about to start now.  If it starts getting too hot, I believe Texas will jettison from the sinking ship.

    You are correct about societal patterns, approximately every 80 years (a human lifetime, people dismiss history – “normalcy bias”) – Revolutionary War, War Between the States, Great Depression/WWII – and now.  Probably the “Great Recession”/2nd American Revolution.  Strauss and Howe categorized this societal pattern.  Read more about it at wwwdot fourthturning dotcom.  Interesting reading.

    He needs to be impeached now what are we waiting on ?

  • sparducks

     I think you nailed it. I’ve often said he has a giant chip on his shoulder. It had to be an event early in his life that sparked this hatred for America. Because really America has been amazingly good to him.  Hawaii, Harvard a  beautiful family senator and now potus and yet he still is driven by his hatred for not really America but white America. He hates whitey.

  • Elizabeth Bracy

    Obama has a deep-seated hatred of the United States, which to any sane person has become crystal clear over the last 4 years. He doesn’t want the United States to be #1 anymore, either. I think we have just seen the beginning of his ability to run wild and crush the Constitution. Without having to worry about re-election, now he’s free to unilaterally declare executive orders and bypass Congress. The GOP doesn’t have enough balls to start an impeachment trial.

  • http://www.facebook.com/steven.king.507679 Steven King

    You said we, the uninformed, will follow……..etc. etc.  Like you have a mouse in your pocket. I have not followed MR. Obama anywhere nor have a sizeable group of fellow Marines in the area. There is no intent to comply with any Executive Order implemented by the King wanna be  He has no standing in my eyes. And yes you are correct, Obama is a Vengeful, deceitful, manipulating POSER. I would not suffer the disgrace of using the acronym POTUS in conjunction with his name. He has disgraced the office and I feel that there is much more involved than just his history. I watched George Sorros express disappointment in Obamas first term so he’s really a lap dog for higher powers, and his little vendetta is just icing on the cake, there is a much bigger payoff waiting for him in one of those vile secret offshore numbered accounts. Do some investigating on George Sorros, his choices have been very interesting since WW II. There is a little vengeance at play there as well.
      Anyway, Semper Fi dude (one grunt to another) and maybe you’ll be kinder to us non-Lemmings in the future. Peace out…

    Toooooooo late dude, great stuff but where were you in the Summer he’s already locked in for another four, had you posted that back then and run it on some ethnic web sites you might have caught the eye of the few we needed to remove this usurper of American greatness before he could do any more harm and what the Hell were they thinking, didn’t the fact that everything he said in his first run was a lie (except the part about fundamentally transforming the United States of America).  Him standing behind those little children yesterday made me ill, I could not watch. His statement about saving just one child left out the true cost. The one thing holding all of those who would wage war on U S soil is that they are deterred by the fear of the 700,000,000 firearms in the hands of a civilian population, many whom have had military training and live in States with very comforting gun laws, take that away and you are endangering the lives of the very people who technically are charged with defending the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic Hmmmmmmmmm………  And that AR-15 (the AR stands for Armalite Rifles the initial mfg. Of the weapon not Assault Rifle) and anything that remotely resembles it, that they want to ban in the most popular hunting rifle on the planet, everyone I know has at least one or two and they ain’t giving them up…………..

    Roll on Texas!  I’m just down the street, living in Louisiana.  This writer does not do the Lemming thing either.  I’m using “we” because the majority of Americans’ voted, not once, but twice to install Obama into his current office as POTUS, through their election.  Yes, it does seem that mankind is engaged in an eighty year “do loop,” concerning the repetition of history.

    Semper Fidelis!  This grunt is also a non-Lemming.  The USMC takes orders from the Commander-In-Chief.  We Marines’ might not agree with the orders we are handed, but we comply.  Once free of the Chain of Command we can and do exercise our right, under the United States Constitution, to speak and act contrarian.  This Marine used the word “we,” because the majority of Americans’ voted, not once, but twice to install Obama into his current office as POTUS, through their election.  This Marine is in agreement, George Soros is a villain and archetypical of Obama’s conceptual and stereotypical “evil rich guy.”

    When a person harbours resentment and hatred, from the past and present, to the point they are obsessed with a vengence (vendetta)…..isn’t that a “mental illness?”  It appears that Obama fits the bill.  And if he succeeded in disarming America, doesn’t that mean he better have his Security detail take up Judo or Karate, since they won’t have any firearms to “protect” him or his family?  Hummmm  I doubt he’d like the shoe on the other foot.

    HOORAH AND GOD BLESS THE NRA (LOVE NRA) FOR FIGHTING FOR US AND EVERYONE SHOULD BE FIGHTING FOR OURSELVES, ALSO.  DON’T LET THIS NAZI (AND HIS PUPPETEER SOROS)  RADICAL TERRORIST AND HIS REGIME RULING AMERICA TAKE AMERICA DOWN. THEY HAVE ALMOST DESTROYED THE AMERICA THAT WE KNEW, ALREADY.   HE WANTS TO DISARM AMERICA SO THAT HE WILL HAVE AN EASIER BATTLE WHEN HE DECLARES DICTATORSHIP OR HE GIVES AMERICA TO THE RADICAL MUSLIMS WHO PRACTICALLY LIVE IN THE WHITE HOUSE.  HE HAS NO IDEA WHO “REAL AMERICANS” ARE.  HIS REGIME ARE ALL TERRORISTS, EITHER FOREIGN OR DOMESTIC “TRAITOR HOME GROWN TERRORISTS” SUCH AS 99.999999% OF THE DEMOCRATS, DONKEYS/ASSES(DEMS, LOGO).  THEY CALL EVERYONE, THE GOP, TEA PARTY, ETC. TERRORISTS BUT THEY USE THAT AS A BLUFF TO HIDE THEIR OWN REAL CROOKED TERRORIST AND TERRORIST LOVING SELVES.
      IF THE ILLEGAL, RACIST, NAZI, COMMUNIST, MARXIST, RADICAL MUSLIM TERRORIST, TYRANT, DICTATOR WERE  LEGAL, YES, HE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED, ASAP AND GIVEN THE LETHAL INJECTION FOR “HIGH TREASON” AGAINST AMERICA.  BUT, SINCE HE IS ILLEGAL, HE SHOULD BE ARRESTED AND “DEPOSITED” IN GITMO TO FACE THE FIRING SQUAD FOR “TERRORISM” AGAINST AMERICA.  CRIMES AGAINST A COUNTRY IN WHICH YOU ARE NOT A CITIZEN IS “TERRORISM”, CRIMES AGAINST YOUR OWN COUNTRY IS “TREASON, HIGH TREASON” AND BOTH CAN (AND DO) CARRY A DEATH SENTENCE.  THIS SEWAGE IN THE SEWER OF THE WHITE HOUSE NEEDS TO BE IN GITMO AND FACING THE FIRING SQUAD, ASAP.  CONGRESS, DO YOUR JOBS OR GO WITH HIM, BUT OF COURSE, THAT’S REALLY WHERE YOU BELONG.  AIDERS AND ABETTORS (HIGH TREASON) ARE AS GUILTY AS THE CRIMINALS THAT THEY ASSIST AND YOU ARE STANDING ON THE “EDGE” OF GITMO AND THE FIRING SQUAD, TOO. THE NAZIS AND ALL TERRORISTS IN THIS GOVERNMENT NEED TO BE ARRESTED AND STOPPED, ASAP. THEN ABOLISH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND USE A MOST SCANT, MEAGER AMOUNT (DIVIDE THE REST WITH EACH STATE) OF THE “MONIES” USED FOR THEIR SALARIES AND BENEFITS FOR THEIR MEALS IN PRISON (GITMO) UNTIL THE DAY OF FACING THE FIRING SQUAD.  THE TAXPAYERS SURE WOULD APPRECIATE “THE SAVINGS” EACH PAYDAY.  THE STATES ARE VERY CAPABLE OF TAKING CARE OF THEMSELVES AND HAVE $TRILLIONS TO BETTER THIS COUNTRY AND OUR MILITARY.  AMERICA CAN FLOURISH AGAIN WITHOUT THE FEDERAL TERRORISTS AND CRIMINALS STEALING $TRILLIONS YEARLY.  GOD BLESS AMERICA.

    They need to stop calling them Executive Orders, they are Really Dictator’s Orders!  He Absolutely Has Zero Intentions of Doing What is Right for Americans, and he has Zero Intentions of Listening to the REAL LAWMAKERS… 

    I live in Linn County Oregon, and Our Sherriff has written to Obummer stating that he will Not follow Obummer’s Orders.  That he will not pursue ANY of the Violations of the 2nd Amendment that Obummer has written.  He will follow the laws written in our Constitution, and our State Laws, but to do what Obummer wants is illegal search and seizure activites (and that clearly goes against his Oath of Office as Sherriff).

    I have thought about moving to a place that has more economic stability & growth.  But, I would rather live in a place where the Sherriff is going to Defend My Rights!!!

    I’ve been at the head of my chain of command since March 1975. I understand commitment to duty .I spent 39 months of my 6 1/2 years as a proud young United States Marine, I also spent 27 months in Naval Hospitals in Japan and California undergoing reconstruction of my left shoulder joint and rehab trying make it work. They finally got it working good enough to call it functional and they gave me a check for $11,000.00 severance and my 2nd honorable discharge. The VA was crap they took what the Medical review board said was a 30% disability and made it a worthless 10%, I was also running a raging case of PTSD and was in constant physical pain, which I was forced to self medicate as the VA did not yet recognize PTSD and wanted me to pay for any meds I required… I’m still proud to be a Marine, it is something that never leaves you and no matter where you go you can always find a fellow Marine. …. Once a Marine always a Marine, my Shrink says she has only one issue with Corps, They never let you go…
      Oh yeah, you may take orders from the President because that is your job, but it is you “Duty” to question anything you feel is unlawful and this guy has done nothing legitimate since he took office…. Keep you head down Brother   “Semper Fi”

    Obama has lied to the American people and continues to do so. What’s the surprise? The end justifies the means is the mantra of liberals, “true believers and criminals alike. However, when a marked number of citizens don’t care, don’t know, have a vested interest, or believe the same way, the stage is set for chaos and political change. It’s very difficult to defend against the barbarians at the gate, and the barbarians at your back at the same time while fools daydream. Rome learned the hard way.

    As long as the Democrats control the Senate, any attempt at impeachment is doomed to failure. Failure of impeachment would confuse people into thinking that the charges were invalid, and proceed from some sort of bias against the President.  It would make Republicans seem unreasonable to the majority of the country who do not know what their rights are or why they are important. The cargo cultists who think free school lunches or welfare are “rights” will only be alarmed by a legal frontal attack on their deity.

    Steven King, I beg to differ, it is NEVER Too Late As Long As We Are Alive and Don’t Give Up The Fight!!!  Have you ever had any sports training?  One of the First Things they tell you is that, “Once you give up in your mind, You have already Lost…”

    These are what I believe they are targeting:
    1.) Hope – Americans built this Great Country on the Hopes that their Dreams Could Come True If They Tried Hard Enough!  And, if they did not make but gave it their best effort, they could live with that because no one took their chance away but themselves.  (Many still had multiple failures, but stuck to their Dream until they finally made it happen!)
    2.) Religion – People who are deep into faith do not tend to become senseless goons for bad guys.  People who have faith also know that Slavery by any name is Wrong.  People who have faith tend to pass those traits onto their children.
    3.)  Our Children – it has been said before, “Give Me Just One Generation Of Youth…”
    4.)  Education – Why do you think that Many of the Most Successful People are Not College Grads?  In college you are brainwashed to think inside someone else’s box and not yours.  They tell you that there are Rules, Guidelines, Processes that you Must Follow (Tke the four minute mile, until it was done it was the Impossible, but after it was done look how many were able to attain.  But, before it happened people were Told by others that it Would Never!).  Most of my successes have been on things that I learned on my own, self education and Hard Knocks Education!
    5.)  Economy & Food Chain – People who have what they need Do Not Rely On Others For Assistance!!! (I cannot repeat this one enough times…).  This is another reason they are attacking Churches & Charities, because they help people get what they need without Gov’t Intervention.
    6.)  Families – Break the Cohesion and Prey On The Weak Minded, and Use them Against their Strong Minded Family Members…
    7.)  Culture – People who lose their Culture become like Ghost, they exist but their is No Tangible Realities to Who They Really Are!  Once people as Individuals or Nations Lose Their Identities, and Forget What Made Them Who They Are, They Lose Reasons For Their Existence.  (Hitler not only attacked Jews but also their culture.)
    8.) Defenders of the Constitution – This is the Glue that Binds Mens Souls as a Single Entity to Fight Against Their Wiles!!!

    Oh, and Thank-You for you Comments Too!

    Obama is not the problem! We are! 

    Beck, in the last 4 tears, has done a prophetic job explaining
    the devices of Satan (2 Cor. 2:11) including the timing, occurrences,
    dependents and links. Sleepy PC Americans were terribly naïve and
    needed his research. Unfortunately most of us became more
    interested in the occurrences and dependents concerning the “darkness” – and
    not of the Light (Isa. 21:11). Most of us got off-message and began blaming Obama for
    America’s problems.

    The point is this:  Obama does not cause 75% of all African
    American babies to be born out of wedlock and to drop out of school when they
    become teenagers. He does not cause men to have sex with each other, spread disease,
    and demand equal respect.  He does not
    cause troubled teens, school shootings, drug abuse, poverty, crime, adultery,
    divorce, most over the age of 18 shacking up, or Bernard L. Madoff to create a
    $50 billion Ponzi scheme to defraud 4800 clients.

    Obama is only a responder, not a leader! As a responder he is
    a champion illuminator, definer and community organizer of public crisis
    issues. He solves problems by blaming others and influentially gains sympathy
    to use new laws and public money to be totally
    unsuccessful in solving the inevitable consequences of public sin.

    We are the problem and unless we name the problem accurately, we remain without hope.

    Dude…. all of your philosophical bulls#!t is very insightful and possibly even admirable on some level, however this arsehole in about to take the oath (maybe even properly this time) and there are two facts that stand in the way of your eloquent but inconsequential argument. (1) If the House  suddenly found the balls to vote for articles of impeachment, the current Senate would never convict and I can almost guarantee Dem. gains in both Houses in 2014 unless something radically changes before then. (2) The Poser in Chief will not step down. So, while you are “clinging to hope, in your mind” “the boy from Kenya” will be partying down with Byonce and company at all the Inaugural parties and my friend I can assure you it will be the most expensive and garish celebration in History to showcase Lady Posers new $10,000.00 hairdo.

    Thank you, but I do not require your sympathy I have no problem with the Corps, I enlisted, twice, and knew where I was going and the risks. My issues are with the Government, they pissed away hundreds of millions prosecuting a “Police Action” (more men died in one month than in the entire Iraq and Afghanistan “wars”) then ignored those who aided and abetted that action. It took 37 years to finally get the medical attention and the correct 100% disability rating. Proper Psych help, medication, real pain meds (instead of Cocaine, alcohol and illegal pharmaceuticals) surgical attention and a decent income has improved my quality of life and my outlook on life considerably (been with the same woman for 11 years, own a home in Fl and a Mountain top in Va, I don’t drink or smoke any more, new Harley Ultra Classic and a 95 Springer Softail, ’03 Mustang Cobra Vert, wife’s an RN for nearly 30 years.) Don’t feel sorry for me, I did not have to enlist due to a high lottery number in the draft. I made my bed and went through years in a Hell that I created, but my life is just fine now … However the knowledge that the guys coming home today will have it easier in the system because of us is not a bad legacy (they can’t blame us for the outcome of the non-war)… Don’t know where you are, but stay frosty…..

     “First, it’s time for Congress to require a universal background
    check on anyone trying to buy a gun.” These were President Obama’s words
    as he outlined his plans for gun control legislation on Wednesday.

    The president’s unequivocal support for universal checks demonstrates two things:

    .

    1.The president does not consider
    background checks to be an infringement on anyone’s constitutional
    liberties (for this agenda), and2.The president does not consider there to be any technological
    impediments to carrying out universal checks before someone is permitted
    to purchase a firearm (for this agenda).

    .

    In making his statement, President Obama also negated the most
    frequently offered arguments against making E-Verify checks universal and voter ID a requirement to vote.

    .

    If all gun dealers can be required to make sure that a customer meets
    eligibility standards to purchase a gun, why can’t all employers be
    required to check that the people they hire meet the eligibility
    requirements (in the US legally) to hold a job and people who want to vote get an ID (a lot cheaper than getting a gun permit)?

    .

    If
    existing technology and databases are
    reliable enough to determine someone’s fitness to own a weapon,
    shouldn’t existing technology and databases be reliable enough to
    determine someone’s eligibility to work in the United States and vote? 
    It’s illegal already for illegal aliens to own guns (the court has
    already upheld that the “right to bear arms” does NOT apply to illegal
    aliens) so are gun stores going to verify immigration status as well
    which this administration has already persecuted southern border states
    for?

    Just wondering.

  • Todd Scheller

     Steven,
    Thank you for your service, I am also a Marine, Semper Fi.
    What you fail to realize is that the requirements for background checks has already been declared unconstitutional. They came about becasue of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1994, this was contested by two Sheriff’s that would have had to do the background checks for violating the 10th Amendment. See Printz v. United States, 521 U.S. 898 (1997).

    You’re absolutely spot on as being too late. Something tells me, even if I had posted on other sites, it would not have made a difference in the least. This is why I feel the way I do. Remember back in 2006 when a well known American Senator, as he spoke to Congress, said the following,

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising Americas debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Governments reckless fiscal policies. Over the past five years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5-Trillion. That’s Trillion with a “T” and the cost of our debt is the fastest growing expenditure of the Federal Budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy. If Washington were serious about honest tax relief in the country, we would see an effort to reduce our national debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies.

    “Our debt also matters internationally. My friend, the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, likes to remind us that it took 42 Presidents 224 years to run up only $ 1-Trillion of foreign-held debt. This administration did more than that in just 5 years. We must remember that the more we depend on foreign nations to lend us money, the more our economic security is tied to the whims of foreign leaders who’s interrests might not be alined with ours. Increasing Americas debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here. Instead, Washington, today, is shifting the burden of debt on the backs of our children and grandchildren.”

    What America needs, is more elected officials like that, men who have the best national vision and insight, to acknowledge the overwhelming task at hand of ever regaining anything close to  fiscal sanity, allowing our future generations all that America stands for and has to offer….by the way, who was that Senator back in 2006 who spoke so eloquently to the American Congress…Barack Obama that’s who, and that is exactly why nothing that I, or you, nor anyone else can write, or say, will change the course of this administration. Lets face it, the dude knows exactly what he is doing. Since those baiting words to gain office, American debt has gone up $6-Trillion in just four years. We owe our future more today on the whims of nations who’s leaders absolutely do not have our best interests in mind and Obama not only knows it…he prefers it.

    If a man is known by his words…then what I have quoted above makes Obama out to be a two-faced liar, who’s interests are not in obeying the oath of office he swore to do.

    Man, it’s great watching Obama being sworn in, hope all you right wing nut jobs are enjoying it? Have a good time in utter irrelevancy as the rest of us build a New America.

    The way you write, I would opt to say that you’re seeking employment either at MSNBC, or CBS, you’d fit right in.
