If Stupid Were A Person
Obama is an anti-Second Amendment agenda-driven liar who will say anything to advance his assault against law enforcement protecting themselves.
Standing in Camden, New Jersey last week, Obama announced new federal rules for police – including banning certain types of military equipment. In his weekly address Obama, preened for enthralled blacks: “I’ll highlight steps all cities can take to maintain trust between the brave law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line and the communities they’re sworn to serve and protect.” And no one questioned him pursuant to what Constitutional authority he had to infringe upon a State’s rights issue?
Also, for those unfamiliar with code speak, Obama’s reference to “brave law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line” was fully understood to mean black law enforcement. He has seized every opportunity to malign white police officers starting with the Cambridge, MA police department whom he accused of acting stupidly – when they were following protocol to ensure the safety of private citizens. He maligned America’s law enforcement departments as being racist while standing on foreign soil and now he uses rhetoric fully understood by blacks too target whites.[adsanity id=8405 align=alignleft /]The media and the residents of Camden should have asked Obama “What the Sam Hill he was thinking?” Camden, according to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, is one of the most dangerous cities in New Jersey. CNN Money wrote in February 2014 that Camden, in fact, headed the list as having the highest crime rate of any city with a population over 75,000. CBS Philly reported that Camden beat out cities like Flint and Detroit, MI, and Newark, NJ. (Camden Ranks Most Dangerous City in the Country; 2/10/14)
I’m sure the criminal element enjoined the anti-Second Amendment neo-Leninists in loudly applauding Obama’s announcement. But police departments nationwide were not cheering Obama’s unconstitutional usurping of authority.
Law enforcement departments vividly recall “The North Hollywood Shootout” in Los Angeles. It was without exception one of the most violent standoffs between law enforcement and a criminal element. Two heavily armed and armored bank robbers and police fired nearly 2,000 rounds of ammunition during the shootout.
Local police officers were hopelessly outgunned and unprepared for the assault they were confronted with. The two bank robbers used ammunition that was able to penetrate vehicles and the Kevlar vests worn by officers. The two robbers who were on foot and attempting to run wounded eleven police officers and seven civilians before one was fatally wounded and the other took his life.
It was this deadly bank robbery shootout that precipitated the realization that law enforcement must be able to match the fire power/weaponry of violent criminals. The North Hollywood Shootout took place February 28, 1997 and involved two perpetrators. Consider the firepower gangs, drug dealers, and criminals have at their disposal today.
Consider the hundreds of innocent Mexicans who were murdered along with American border employees Jaime Zapata and Brian Terry by the illegal gunrunning operation orchestrated by the Obama administration. Consider that there is now credible reason to believe that the military grade weaponry Obama’s illegal gunrunning operation provided across the Mexican border has returned to American cities in the hands of the very criminals Obama now proposes to handicap law enforcement in favor of.
Obama has no authority whatsoever to undertake such action. But in the absence of even a cartoon leadership in Congress, Republicans eager to please Obama allow him to ignore the Constitution.
It is a successfully tested model; Obama takes action that he has no Constitution authority to make, and Republicans like trained seals balancing balls on their noses react by waiting for another kipper to be thrown their way.
We do not need to handcuff and limit the weaponry available to police; we need to make sure that when the next Watts, Ferguson, or Baltimore breaks out that law enforcement are in a position to meet it head on before cities are destroyed.
If Obama is concerned about police community relations, let him act consistent with his position and tell blacks destroying entire cities to cease and desist or face the consequences.
And to all the blacks applauding Obama in Camden, I ask: “Is it the police or the dope-dealing gangsters raping, pillaging, and destroying your city?[adsanity id=11817 align=alignleft /]
