Obama’s “Salami” politics …
Salami tactics, also known as the salami-slice strategy, is a divide and conquer process of threats and alliances used to overcome opposition. With it, an aggressor can influence and eventually dominate a landscape, typically political, piece by piece. In this fashion, the opposition is eliminated "slice by slice" until one realizes (too late) that it's gone in its entirety. In some cases it includes the creation of several factions within the opposing political party and then dismantling that party from the inside, without causing the "sliced" sides to protest. Salami tactics are most likely to succeed when the perpetrators keep their true long-term motives hidden and maintain a posture of cooperativeness and helpfulness while engaged in the intended gradual subversion. <Source>
Any compromise with the democrats on gun control is not a victory for the GOP or the people of America, but just another delay in the achievement of the democrat’s goal: dismantling the Constitution, including the elimination of the Second Amendment and the curtailment of the First Amendment …
Obama suggests Republicans unwilling to compromise in gun control debate
President Obama is suggesting that House Republicans on the issue of gun control appear neither willing to work with him nor listen to the American public on the issue.
While citizens are entitled to their own opinion on the Second Amendment, it should be an informed opinion and not an opinion fashioned by socialists and communists who represent a clear and present danger to our Constitution from our enemies, both foreign and domestic. What rhetoric and political pressure can be exerted on politicians to make them sellout their country and constituency without applying the designation “traitor” to their behavior?
“The House Republican majority is made up mostly of members who are in sharply gerrymandered districts that are very safely Republican and may not feel compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion, because what they're really concerned about is the opinions of their specific Republican constituencies,” the president said in an interview with The New Republic.
Obama also said he can get 50 percent of public support for many of his upcoming initiatives, but “I can't get enough votes out of the House of Representatives to actually get something passed. … I think there is still shock on the part of some in the party that I won re-election.”
The president said he has a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that date back for generations. He said that moving forward on the topic means understanding that the realities of guns in urban areas are very different from the realities of guns in rural areas.
If the President were an honest broker, he would be cracking down on minority gangs and drug dealers in democrat-controlled areas …
The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting and everything to do with preserving your God-given freedoms. The Second Amendment merely acknowledges those God-given freedoms to self-defense and does serve as the source of those freedoms.
Yes, if the President were an honest broker representing “We the People,” he would note that the realities of guns in urban areas mostly involve his core constituency, the minorities, in democrat-controlled areas with strict gun control already in place. And, that rather than point out that most of the gun-related violence is the result of law enforcement activity or the work of gang turf and drug operations, he points to a relatively few children and demands that the majority of law-abiding citizens be denied “adequate and effective” weapons to protect themselves against a rising criminal population – and according to the Second Amendment, tyrannical actions of an increasingly repressive government.
And, as for the necessity of anyone to own a so-called assault rifle, in reality a semi-automatic weapon with a clip larger that ten rounds, let us consider someone facing a raging mob after a natural disaster or civil insurrection with a pea shooter. There are situations that call for rapid-fire, high-capacity weaponry – and those situations were recently seen in racially-motivated riots and when law enforcement abandoned their post in a natural disaster – some in law enforcement becoming the “enemy of the people” as they shot and killed innocent and defenseless citizens.
He said it's understandable that people are protective of their family traditions when it comes to hunting so “gun-control advocates also need to do “a little more listening than they do sometimes” in the debate.
Not protective of their family traditions – but protective of themselves, their families and their neighbors.
Obama also said one of the biggest factors in the gun-control debate will be how it is shaped by the media.
“If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it,” he said. “I think John Boehner genuinely wanted to get a deal done, but it was hard to do in part because his caucus is more conservative probably than most Republican leaders are, and partly because he is vulnerable to attack for compromising Republican principles and working with Obama.”
The president argued that “the more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word” and that party leaders, including Senate Majority Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, are “willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done.” Source: Obama suggests Republicans unwilling to compromise in gun control debate | Fox News
With the majority of the mainstream media in the tank for President Obama and his fellow travelers, only a courageous few are willing to stand up and tell the world that not only does the emperor have no clothes, but that he is a malignant lying socialist who wants to fundamentally transform America into a socialist democracy with a permanent democrat ruling class.
And yes, the word “compromise” is a dirty word – a treasonous word – when it refers to the elimination and/or reduction of your ability to protect yourself or your family from crazies or criminals that roam our nation at will.
Bottom line …
The fight against Obama and his fellow travelers is an existential battle. We are losing our freedoms, slice-by-slice, under Congressional legislation, under the President’s executive orders, under the Administration’s rules and regulations, and under an activist judiciary that routinely usurps the sole lawmaking power of Congress to put for “bright line” rules.
It is time to recognize that those who kill children or engage in mass murder are mentally-ill – not something that can be cured by disarming the law-abiding citizens who are on the scene and can neutralize the threat or mitigate the damage. Most of the mass killings have been in “gun-free” zones. When mass murder was attempted elsewhere, it was not a case of mass murder, because the threat was neutralized before the body count could rise.
It is time to recognize that much of the gun death that Obama deplores actually occurs in democrat-controlled inner cities with gang-related gunplay responsible for killing themselves and innocent bystanders. Perhaps the gun statistics should be re-calculated with breakouts for minority-based crime (a racist thought according to the democrats) and gun-crime in democrat controlled areas with strict gun control. Then replace the corrupt governing officials and unionized law enforcement in those areas.
If Obama was serious about crime, how about dealing with the gangs before guns.
