ATF Says It Will “Shelve” .223/AR-15 Bullet Ban “At This Time”

ATFAmmoBan

A day after it was learned the ATF already ‘banned’ the ammunition – then said it was a ‘printing error’ – today says they are “shelving” the ban.  Shelving it for now, to impose it later.

In a clever redirect of public rage – Obama’s ATF now says it will “shelve” the ban on AR-15 .223 ammunition it declared ‘armor piercing’, after it was discovered they violated law by already banning the ammunition without following procedural law for public comment, which the ATF insisted was a ‘publishing mistake’ .

While some will say we can now breathe a sigh of relief, I advise against sighing at all.  They WILL BAN THIS AMMUNITION – and most likely overnight without any of us knowing it has been banned.  Note the clever usage of words in their statement below that they will not “seek to issue final guidelines AT THIS TIME”.

“AT THIS TIME”.

They will ban it later – but NOT AT THIS TIME.

Why?  Public and congressional outrage has to be diminished and then they will act in an instant once they think they have worn us out and can get away with it.

Of importance to remember is that White House Volksaufklärung und Propaganda Josh Earnest, stated last Monday that Obama is investigating new ways to enact further gun control by decree to his alphabet agencies.

“It would be fair to say, we are looking at additional ways to protect our brave men and women in law enforcement, and believe that this process is valuable for that reason alone” Earnest said.

So “the process is valuable for that reason alone”.  What ‘process’ is that?  Why the ‘process’ of Obama using Alphabet agencies under the Executive Branch to impose his will by decree outside of Congressional or public interference.  They find using that ‘process’ “valuable” – and are looking at ‘additional ways’ to do so.

See, this ban is a ‘done deal’ – a ‘cake already baked’.    What Obama wants, he gets by subterfuge, threats or imposition.  It is the hallmark of a dictator, and he showcases that fact every single day.

The fact the ATF has ‘shelved’ this ban “at this time” is IRRELEVANT because I doubt you will be able to go to your gun shop or sporting goods store and purchase .223 green tipped ammunition now, or any time in the near future for that matter.  The supplies are already bought up and what might be out there is available only in the secondary market at inflated prices.  See, the government has gotten good at creating a shortage by simply making statements that cause a run over fears of it’s future unavailability.

We can only hope that the House and Senate use this time to create an offensive and pre-emptive effort to stop any attempt by the Alphabets to impose gun bans and control via execrative actions and decrees.  But do not hold your breath – the GOP Leadership in both houses has demonstrated they will never stand up against Obama’s unConstitutional lawlessness when push comes to shove.

 

ATF shelves controversial bullet ban proposal

DEVELOPING … 

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is shelving a controversial proposal to ban a popular type of bullet, amid opposition from hundreds of congressional lawmakers.

The ATF said in a statement on Tuesday it would not seek to issue the final guidelines “at this time.” The proposal pertained to M855 “green tip” ammunition, used in the AR-15 rifle; regulators looked at banning it because can pierce police body armor.

The ATF said in a statement on Tuesday it would not seek to issue final guidelines “at this time.” The agency said it will instead wait until Americans have finished commenting on the federal regulations and evaluate their comments and suggestions before “proceeding with any framework.

The statement follows 52 senators and 238 House members joining in opposition to any attempt the Obama administration might make to ban the ammo.

“ATF will not at this time seek to issue a final framework,” the agency said Tuesday. “The issues raised (so far) in the comments ATF has received to date will require further consideration, and fully processing all of the comments will take time. Given the overwhelming interest in this issue, and the issues raised in the comments received so far, ATF will not at this time issue a final framework.”

White House Looking Into Additional Ammunition ‘Bans’ Via Executive Decree

ATFAmmoBan2

Reclassifying ammunition in order for Obama’s Alphabets to ban production and sale to the public was only step one in further actions planned “to ‘protect the Second Amendment’ and keep police safe”.

From the regime that stoked a racist-filled mob of blacks to wage protests and incite violence against police officers, comes a White House “Justification” for Obama to direct the ATF/BATFE to ban .223 M855 ammunition by declaring it ‘armor piercing’ – (which it is not); to keep police safe.

The same exact totalitarian Marxist regime that declared an ENTIRE CITY’S POLICE DEPARTMENT RACIST when it could not bring any legitimate charges either criminal or civil against them in the “Gentle Giant” Michael Brown shooting; and met in secret with Ferguson protest leaders to stoke violence against police – has the hubris to state that the reason Obama has directed the ATF to ban ammunition by decree is to “protect the police” and “safeguard the Second Amendment”.

Well, this is simply another “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” and “not a smidgeon of corruption” moment from the Obama mob.

White House Spokesimbecile and Volksaufklärung und Propaganda Josh Earnest, stated on Monday that Obama is investigating new ways to enact further gun control:

“It would be fair to say, we are looking at additional ways to protect our brave men and women in law enforcement, and believe that this process is valuable for that reason alone” he said during the press briefing. “This seems to be an area where everyone should agree that if there are armor-piercing bullets that fit into easily concealed weapons, that puts our law enforcement at considerably more risk.”

“Considerably more risk”???

How about that wide-open Southern border and flying in tens of thousands Syrian and Middle Eastern “refugees” for resettlement while negotiating with the Mullahs in Iran to allow them to have nukes – but hey, those aren’t  “real threats” to law enforcement.  Just citizen gun owners are according to these tyrants.  The lying hubris continued:

“So I put this in the category of common-sense steps the government can take to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans, while also making sure that our law enforcement officers who are walking the beat every day can do their jobs just a little more safely,”

How is BANNING ammunition for the most popular rifle in American citizens’ possession “protecting Second Amendment Rights”????????

It isn’t.  Like everything else with the king and his regime, whatever they state – the truth is always the exact opposite.

As Erich Pratt of GOA said – this is another end-run around Congress, which as the previous essay I posted yesterday outlines – is now an actual dictatorship by Obama’s own admission. We have become a Fascist State – almost identical to how Benito Mussolini established his Socialist Utopia and foisted it upon his countrymen while commandeering absolute rule for himself.

No one is stopping him.  Not the complicit traitors in the GOP leadership, not the complaint judiciary or anyone whom the Founders put as a check on absolute power.

We are on our own, considered enemies by this government.

Here’s How the White House Is Justifying Trying to Ban Certain Ammo Without Congress

The White House on Monday defended the Obama administration’s move to ban certain bullets used in a wildly popular rifle, a proposal that has stirred opposition from Second Amendment advocates and a prominent member of Congress.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is considering a ban on M855 ball ammunition, which pro-gun groups have said is among the most popular cartridge used for the AR-15 rifle and is frequently used for sporting purposes like hunting, because of its so-called “armor-piercing” capabilities.

“It would be fair to say, as we are looking at additional ways to protect our brave men and women in law enforcement, and believe that this process is valuable for that reason alone,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told TheBlaze during the press briefing. “This seems to be an area where everyone should agree that if there are armor-piercing bullets that fit into easily concealed weapons, that puts our law enforcement at considerably more risk.”

“So I put this in the category of common-sense steps the government can take to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans, while also making sure that our law enforcement officers who are walking the beat every day can do their jobs just a little more safely,” he continued.

Obama ‘Interested” To Raise Taxes By Decree – While Directing IRS To Pay Tax ‘Refunds’ To Illegals Who Never Filed

TaxrefundsDecree

White House confirms that Obama is investigating using ‘Executive actions’ to raise hundreds of billions in new taxes, bypassing Congress.  At the same time the IRS defends Obama’s decree to give illegals immediate tax refunds when they file for a Social Security number.

Obama has asserted he is king, Arbiter of what is law and Maker of Law, by decree (Executive Actions/Memoranda).  We are being ruled by a Dictator intending to rule by decree and overthrow us from within. What more proof do we need of that fact?  Well, the White House just provided more yesterday.  His Heinous is investigating ways to raise taxes on his own authority without Congress as mandated by the Constitution.  At the same time The Won has ordered the IRS to hand out ‘tax refunds’ (up to $40,000 each) to every illegal that applies for a Social Security Number – even though not a single one of them has ever filed or paid taxes.

Are you getting the picture of what is being done to us yet?  The Constitution is now completely irrelevant.   Congress having already surrendered it’s power of the purse to Obama – has apparently also surrendered their sole power to tax to Dear Leader Obama as well.   The Constitution prescribes tax revenue bills must originate in the House of Representatives only.  That was dashed with the passage of ObamaCare in 2010.  Yesterday the White House confirms Obama is planning to raise taxes by decree and sadly – Congress will not impede or stop this dictator.   Instead they grant him every cover and excuse to continue his lawlessness.

If raising your taxes by decree was not a middle finger in your face, – how about the plan to hand those taxes over to “New Americans” to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars each?  “Refunds” you, the citizen are not entitled to but that the alien and stranger among us is said to be ‘entitled to’.  This is a velvet coup by a dictatorship that is implementing a planned genocide via indigenous economic replacement, it is what Obama meant when he said he was going to  ‘Fundamentally transform the United States of America”.

A phone conference with Obama’s Amnesty team revealed that the plan is to push American Citizens into the shadows and give benefits and preferences to over 15 million illegal third world squatters that the regime is calling ‘New Americans’.  They will be placed in ‘Receiving Communities’ for the purpose of creating a ‘country within a country’.  The plan is for those ‘communities’ to act as ‘seedlings’ that are intended to grow and overtake their surrounding areas.  They will be ‘fertilized’ with ‘tax refunds’ handed to them the moment they arrive, even though they will be instructed to ‘Navigate Not Assimilate’ into America.  It was even discussed that Obama will issue an Executive Order renaming Thanksgiving: ‘Celebrate Immigrants Day’.

Isn’t that special?  I can hear His Heinous’ Castro-like lecture in my head already as he will undoubtedly declare everyone in the country ‘Immigrants’.

The White House’s comments yesterday and the actions of his Alphabet agencies confirm that indeed, the pogram that Obama is implementing is to drive citizens into the shadows, and create a foreign army inside the country to overthrow us, all by decree.

We will have taxation by decree without representation and tax refunds used to fund our replacements with ‘New Americans’.

The entire leadership and government that now rules us has no legitimate authority under Heaven or the Constitution.

It is time we withdraw our consent to be ruled by such despots and refuse to pay for our own subjugation and replacement.

Obama “Very Interested” In Raising Taxes Through Executive Action

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unitlateral executive action.

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.

“Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,” Earnest continued. “But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.

Sanders sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew Friday identifying a number of executive actions he believes the IRS could take, without any input from Congress, that would close loopholes currently used by corporations. In the past, IRS lawyers have been hesitant to use executive actions to raise significant amounts of revenue, but that same calculation has change in other federal agencies since Obama became president.

Obama’s preferred option would be for Congress to pass a corporate tax hike that would fund liberal infrastructure projects like mass transit. But if Congress fails to do as Obama wishes, just as Congress has failed to pass the immigration reforms that Obama prefers, Obama could take actions unilaterally instead. This past November, for example, Obama gave work permits, Social Security Numbers, and drivers licenses to approximately 4 million illegal immigrants.

IRS defends paying refunds to illegals who never filed taxes

The IRS is defending its decision to let illegal immigrants claim up to three years’ refunds on income even if they never paid income taxes, telling Congress in a new letter last week that agency lawyers have concluded getting a Social Security number triggers the ability to go back and ask for previous refunds.

President Obama’s new deportation amnesty could grant Social Security numbers to as many as 4 million illegal immigrants, making many of them eligible for tax refunds under the Earned Income Tax Credit even for years when they cheated on their taxes, by working off the books and not filing tax returns.

Obama To “Take Steps” Against Free Speech And Press That He Says “Provokes Muslims”

63afc-slander-prophet-islam-mohammad-barack-hussein-obama-muslim

Under the false guise of ‘protecting those in uniform’, White House Propaganda SpokesImbecile Josh Earnest says Obama has a “moral responsibility to push back” whenever journalists’ work may provoke jihadist attacks.  Obama and Democrats then retreat for meeting in cloak of secrecy with media banned.

 

We all warned where Political Correctness would one day go; to the government BANNING free speech.  And so, the opening volleys of what we predicted have now been made official.

In the aftermath of the French Charlie Hebdo Jihad attacks, Obama’s actions and lack of action demonstrated his written promise to “Stand with the *Muslims* should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” and snubbed the Unity March against Islamic terrorism with the rest of the world’s leadership.   Upon the international and domestic outrage of his snub, His Heinous sent John Kerry with singer-songwriter James Taylor to sing “You’ve got a friend” to the French leadership, in an ultimate gesture of American insanity and stupidity in order to give the middle finger to the world’s stand against Islamic terror.

Embarrassment

Obama then lectured that Europe must do more to ‘integrate Muslims’ into their cultures.  You know, the religion that declares in the Koran that it has a duty to force conversions to Islam by the sword or KILL the infidels wherever it finds them.   Obama advocates European suicide because obviously, the welfare states that have made native Europeans minorities in their own countries are not enough to stave off the ‘inevitable acts of extremism that took place in France’.

In the subsequent press briefings at the White House, Josh Earnest in attempting to excuse the 2012 White House opposition to Charlie Hebdo’s satirical stabs at Islam, made it clear in a White House Press briefing on January 12th, that Obama has a “moral duty” to quash and restrict journalism that he says is offensive to Islam or may provoke Jihadists.  And like clapping seals, the Praetorian Media dutifully seig heil’s our first Emperors justification to ban any Journalism he says is *offensive to Islam* right before he banned all press from reporting or even being present at his secret retreat meetings with Senior Democrat Party officials over this weekend, where topics would range from his proposed Federal takeover of all Community Colleges to our response in France to the ‘workplace violence’ that took place there.

First Amendment?  Obama don’t need no stinking First Amendment, and by his decree – neither do we.

Obama To Media: Don’t Report Against Muslim Jihadis

There is truly no end to the string of outrages perpetrated on our nation by Barack Obama (or whatever his real name is). The laundry list seems interminable, and today we can honestly regard anyone—anyone—who supports this man and his administration as being dangerously deceived. There is simply no defense of this lawless “president,” who is a clear and present danger to our freedoms, our economy, our healthcare system, our property rights, the freedom of the Internet, our military and national defense—every aspect of our constitutional Republic.

Many of us have long observed that Obama has traitorously aided and abetted our Muslim enemies, giving them weapons, billions of taxpayer dollars and their formerly-imprisoned “soldiers of Allah,” to continue the spread of their cancerous caliphate across the Middle East and elsewhere. If we didn’t know any better, we would believe his sympathies lie on the side of the barbaric Islamists. In truth, we don’t know any better. The only rational conclusion is that this man is an enemy of the United States.

Therefore, it was no surprise, but no less outrageous, when the Daily Caller reported on Tuesday that the White House Minister of Press Propaganda, Josh Earnest, reported that Obama wants to squash freedom of the press. Well, that’s not exactly how he put it. From the Daily Caller piece:

President Barack Obama has a moral responsibility to push back on the nation’s journalism community when it is planning to publish anti-jihadi articles that might cause a jihadi attack against the nation’s defense forces, the White House’s press secretary said Jan. 12.

“The president … will not now be shy about expressing a view or taking the steps that are necessary to try to advocate for the safety and security of our men and women in uniform” whenever journalists’ work may provoke jihadist attacks, spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at the White House’s daily briefing.

Isn’t this always the case? Our freedoms are so often stolen by facetious claims of “safety.” It’s why we stupidly stand without shoes in airport “security” lines, and like sheep, allow junior power-trippers of the TSA to grope our bodies before boarding a plane. “Safety.”

So, Obama, who believes the Muslim “call to prayer” is one of the “prettiest sounds on Earth,” wants to protect from offense the delicate sensibilities of his jihadi brethren by preventing the media from reporting the truth about Muslim jihad. Excuse me, but that’s not the American way, Mr. Quisling! Aside from the fact that one of our most sacred, God-given freedoms is freedom of speech, which includes freedom of the press, Americans do not bow to 7th century throwback Muslim bullies. But I don’t believe we are being ruled by an American—at least not in the theoretical sense of the word. Whatever Obama is, regardless of where this mystery man was or wasn’t born, he is not behaving like an American, much less an American President. He is behaving as a despotic, anti-American enemy within our nation.

As with everything this man and his fellow travelers do, the ostensible reason is not the reason. Spokesmouth Earnest claims Obama’s desire to squelch media expression is for the “safety” of our military troops. That’s a lie. Since when does Obama give a rip about the military, much less its safety? Besides the fact that, if left to its own power, free from insane bureaucratic rules of engagement, the military can take care of itself, the past has shown us that caving to bully Muslims will never appease them. It only makes us appear weak and ripe for attacking. No. I’m certain that the real reason for this lunatic anti-American proclamation is that Obama agrees with one goal of the Islamists: to silence all criticism of Islam. He is just as offended by it as the most retrograde Muslim brute. After all, he claimed the future must not belong to those who “slander” the “prophet” of Islam, right? And, in this case, “slander” means “tell the truth about.”

I’m losing what little optimism I might have had about our chances of undoing Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the United States. This man and his criminal cabal have their evil machine set on “full demolition,” and with a craven, corrupt Congress too scared of its own shadow to oppose him, and with a detestably compliant media—no longer a “free press,” by the way—from where can there possibly emerge a force to stop or reverse this dreadful course of tyranny on which we’re locked?
