“We have so much to address over the coming weeks, Mr. President. Sportsmen’s bill denied, the highway bill, emergency supplemental, manufacturing legislation… we going to do something about the Hobby Lobby legislation, we need to correct.”

H/T Caroline Schaeffer at IJReview who adds:

Hobby Lobby… legislation? Senator Reid, I don’t think you know how this works. The Senate cannot undo a decision made by the Supreme Court, unless it wants to act outside of the Constitution. Not a problem for some in the Democratic Party, but there you have it.

Here’s a refresher course, Mr. Reid, in case you need some brushing up on high school civics.

Mind-numbingly idiotic.

BREAKING! In Unanimous Decision SCOTUS Rules Obama’s NLRB Recess Appointments Unconstitutional…Illegal [UPDATED]

June 26, 2014 at 10:11 am

gavel‘Exceeded his authority’.

(Boston Globe) –WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Thursday limited the president’s power to fill high-level vacancies with temporary appointments, ruling in favor of Senate Republicans in their partisan clash with President Barack Obama.

drudge obama not a king re scotus rules his recess apointments unconstitutional 6 26 14

(Drudge)

The high court’s first-ever case involving the Constitution’s recess appointments clause ended in a unanimous decision holding that Obama’s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board in 2012 without Senate confirmation were illegal. Obama invoked the Constitution’s provision giving the president the power to make temporary appointments when the Senate is in recess.

Problem is, the court said, the Senate was not actually in a formal recess when Obama acted.

Obama had argued that the Senate was on an extended holiday break and that the brief sessions it held every three days were a sham that was intended to prevent him from filling seats on the NLRB.

The justices rejected that argument Wednesday.

Justice Stephen Breyer said in his majority opinion that a congressional break has to last at least 10 days to be considered a recess under the Constitution.

……
The court said Thursday that President Barack Obama exceeded his authority when he invoked the Constitution’s provision on recess appointments to fill slots on the National Labor Relations Board in 2012.

The justices said in their first-ever consideration of the Constitution’s recess appointments clause that Congress gets to decide when it is in recess and that there was no recess when Obama acted. The president said he made the appointments in the face of Republican refusal to allow the NLRB to function. [...]

UPDATE:

(My Way News) –Obama has made relatively few recess appointments, 32 in his four-plus years in office, according to the Congressional Research Service. President George W. Bush made 171 such appointments over two terms and President Bill Clinton filled 139 posts that way in his eight years in office, the research service said.

But Obama was the first president to try to make recess appointments when Congress explicitly said it was not in recess. The Constitution requires that the Senate and House must get the other’s consent for a break lasting longer than three days. At the end of 2011, the Republican-controlled House would not give the Democratic-led Senate permission for a longer break.

The partisan roles were reversed during Bush’s presidency, when Senate Democrats sought ways to prevent the president from making recess appointments.

In fact, the very basis on which the justices decided the case — that the Senate can use extremely brief sessions to avoid a formal recess — was a tactic devised by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada to frustrate Bush.

TX Gun Store Famous For It’s Snarky Pro-2nd Amendment Signs Is Facing Bank Shutdown

June 21, 2014 at 12:42 pm

All hands on deck.

Tactical Firearms needs your help.

tact

Tactical Firearms latest sign is neither funny nor clever as per usual, it instead relays an ominous message.

Via Guns Save Lives:

Tactical Firearms has prided itself in being honest with our customers from our first day in business. That’s why we are alerting you today to a situation that we believe to be unjust and punitive against Tactical Firearms, and this is a situation that threatens to put us out of business on July 1, 2014.

Tactical Firearms has just been given notice that our loan with Icon bank has been called in. Not because of no payment, as we have never been late or missed a payment, but because the board of directors has chosen to not renew the loan. Deciding to call a loan which has a perfect payment record and is profitable to the bank is almost unheard of in the banking industry. This is why we believe Tactical Firearms is being specifically targeted with punitive actions in an effort to put us out of business.

But there’s even more to this situation that you need to know:

Back in 2012 Tactical Firearms purchased the land next to our existing facility. Icon Bank suggested an interim loan at 7% interest and then to refinance all of our loans together into one loan at a lower rate of 3.579%. At that time we had a fixed, long term loan for the building and the construction of the range. By purchasing the land, it cross collateralized the loans and put us in a situation (unknown to us at the time) that could threaten our entire business.

When it became time to refinance the loans, one of our owners (30%), Steven Coe Wilson, decided to back out. It is our belief based on what we have since learned that Steven wished to seize control of the company. We have substantial reason to believe he recruited some of our longest and hardest working employees to overbuy, to overspend, and to bury Tactical Firearms in debt to the point that we could not pay our bills. His grand plan appears to have been to swoop in and buy up the loan when the bank foreclosed on us for failure to pay. Perhaps to his disappointment, not only have we successfully paid our loan notes, we have also cut the unpaid bills by over half.

Sadly, because Steven did not sign the loan refinance that he had previously agreed to, the short term loan for the land has now matured. By default, our primary business loan is now in jeopardy.

ANTI-TRUST PRACTICES?

Further complicating this situation, it has also been brought to our attention that a member of the board of directors of Icon Bank, Mark Evans, is the owner of a new gun store in the Houston area. Based on what we’ve learned about this competitor, we are convinced that this bank has the intensions of forcing Tactical Firearms out of business to remove a major competitor from the market of Mr. Mark Evans’ new business, Guns Over Texas. If true, we believe this would constitute unfair trade practices in the State of Texas, and we intend to pursue this matter with the office of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Further connections support our accusations of anti-trade practices. For example, Mark Evans is the Managing Partner for Commercial Finance with the firm O’Connor, Craig, Gould & Evans – the firm that is being used by Icon Bank to proceed with the foreclosure. We strongly protest what appears to be a clear conflict of interest on the part of Mark Evans, who appears to be using his influence at the law firm (and therefore the bank) to engage in destructive, punitive actions with the ultimate aim of destroying his competition and thus ensuring the profitability of his own gun store.

Such behavior is monopolistic, anti-free-trade and un-American. Please contact the Attorney General and urge him to look into this matter.

Email: Attorney General Greg Abbott
greg.abbott@texasattorneygeneral.gov

At the same time, the bank’s excuse to us for calling in the loan is because the “government does not support loans to the gun, alcohol, or hotel industries” and the banks get heavily audited. This is an extension of the Obama administration’s backdoor efforts to bankrupt the firearms industry and all its supporting retailers and firing ranges. Since the government can’t take away our Second Amendment directly, they make it difficult for businesses to stay open by pressuring banks to close loans. This has already happened to other gun shops around the country. We are fighting to make sure it doesn’t happen to us.

All these factors seem to now be coalescing into a deliberate, well-planned attack on Tactical Firearms with the aim of permanently putting us out of business. The idea of our doors closing is incredibly painful to even imagine. We have over 30 employees, many of whom have children, who depend on our successful business operations to keep their own homes. In addition to our economic contributions to Katy and the greater Houston area, we also donate our time and profits to charities like Oilfield Helping Hands and Texas Sentinels.

Even more, there are 175 NFA items in our possession awaiting approval from the ATF. If we are unable to stay in business, every single one of these items would have to be resubmitted and the year long process would begin again.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO FIGHT THIS TYRANNY

Today, I am reaching out to YOU, our valued customers and supports, to ask for your help in keeping us out of the clutches of these punitive, monopolistic actions that now threaten Tactical Firearms.

FIRST, we need you to CONTACT THE BANK and urge them to reconsider their intended loan recall, pointing out that all banks need goodwill in the community in order to stay in business themselves:

John Green, President and Vice Chairman of the Board Icon Bank,
jgreen@iconbanktx.com
281-517-2430

www.iconbanktx.com

SECOND, we ask that you contact Mark Evans, who resides on the Board of Directors of Icon Bank, and let him know that the community is now heavily scrutinizing his actions and that we believe he is engaged in anti-trust violations of state and federal law. We will not hesitate to take this issue to the press if Evans pursues what we believe to be a punitive, anti-trade assault on our business rights:

Mark Evans, Board of Directors Icon Bank and Managing Partner of O’Connor, Craig, Gould & Evans,
mark.evans@bgllp.com, 713-221-1300

THIRD, we ask that you help put out the word that all this could be readily solved if another INVESTOR or LENDER could be identified who would step up to the plate and support this successful business. We are a high-integrity, profitable business with a strong credit history and a perfect record of loan payment. Any lender would be thrilled to do business with a company like Tactical Firearms, and if a lender or investor wishes to help support our operations, it would also be a PROFITABLE venture for them to do so.

If you know of such a lender or investor who is interested in a profitable partnership with Tactical Firearms, please have them contact us at:
Email: helpus@tacticalfirearms.us

Finally, all of us here at Tactical Firearms thank you for your ongoing support, and please know that we are deeply dedicated to finding solutions that will defend us against this punitive and potentially unlawful attempts to destroy our business.

We believe in America. We believe in the Second Amendment. And we also believe that businesses operating in Texas should not be subjected to Gestapo-style tactics from the banking industry and its insiders. What we are fighting for here is the integrity of the entire business infrastructure which obviously depends on lenders to act on good faith when supporting expanding businesses.

What this system is trying to do to Tactical Firearms right now is a travesty of justice, and it’s just one more sign of the kind of punitive insanity we are seeing played out across this great nation by a network of anti-American individuals who are attempting to destroy the fabric of this nation one day at a time.

We refuse to let that happen, and we will fight this with every ounce of effort and breath within our reach. We thank you for any assistance and help you can offer us in this very trying time.

Share this with everyone you know and please keep all of us in your prayers.

Sincerely,
The Tactical Firearms Family

Hillary On 2nd Amendment Supporters “Minority Hold VIEWPOINT That TERRORIZES The Majority” [Video]

June 18, 2014 at 8:12 am

According to Hillary Clinton gun owning 2nd amendment supporters are –terrorists guilty of –thought crimes. These “guys“, not so much. And they are the only “minority” (as if) group of Americans she is comfortable assaulting.

“I’m well aware that this is a hot political subject. And again, I will speak out no matter what role I find myself in But I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation. We cannot let a minority of people – and it’s, that’s what it is, it is a minority of people – hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.

– Hillary Clinton CNN Televised Town Hall With Christiane Amanpour- Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices June 17, 2014

YouTube Preview Image

Hillary’s statement brings up a terrifying question: What steps would President Hillary Clinton take to prevent Americans from holding a “viewpoint?

The full exchange:

GAIL SANTA MARIA, PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER: Hi.

CLINTON: Hi.

SANTA MARIA: My name is Gail Santa Maria. I’m from Maryland. I’m a teacher.

My question is about guns. I’m very concerned about the proliferation of guns in America, especially as it pertains to school shootings.

CLINTON: Right.

SANTA MARIA: Do you think that that reinstating the ban on assault weapons and banning high capacity magazines would do any good?

CLINTON: Yes, I do. I do.

SANTA MARIA: Good.

CLINTON: You know, my –

(APPLAUSE) CLINTON: First of all, I think as a teacher or really any parent, what’s been happening with these school shootings should cause everybody to just think hard. We make hard choices and we balance competing values all the time. And I was disappointed that the Congress did not pass universal background checks after the horrors of the shootings at Sandy Hook and now we’ve had more –

SANTA MARIA: Seventy-four more.

For a woman in charge of educating children Gail sure has trouble keeping up, because that figure has been proven false in a CNN report a full 6 days before the CNN televised event on which she parroted Bloomberg’s Everytown lie. It has also been debunked by Politifact.
Annnnnnd…

It certainly seems like suicides and gang violence should be delineated from “school shootings” (in which the “mass” is pretty much implied) as separate problems, no? Unless, of course, your real goal is to falsely portray an America in which wildly violent, deadly, and indiscriminate gun violence is increasing — rather than the actual trend in which it has for two decades been [CNN: sharply decreasing .]

Back to gun grabbing fascist Hillary:

CLINTON: — in the time since.

And I don’t think any parent, any person should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone, for whatever reasons — psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever it means — could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers.

I’m well aware that this is a hot political subject. And again, I will speak out no matter what role I find myself in. But I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation. We cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people. And I have — you are about the fifth person in the last weeks, parents and another teacher, just interested citizens, who have said something similar to me.

So, my view is that yes, we need to thrash this out in the political realm. But the vast majority of Americans, even law abiding gun owners, people –

SANTA MARIA: Who want background checks that work.

CLINTON: — who want background checks that work, information that is shared immediately, and an awareness that, you know, we’re going to have to do a better job protecting the vast majority of our citizens, …

Hey Hill, I’m pretty sure these guys bypass background checks.

hey liberals 2

…including our children, from that very, very, very small group that is unfortunately prone to violence and now with automatic weapons can wreak so much more violence than they ever could have before.

Hillary does not know the difference between fully automatic and semi automatic weapons. So let’s trust her with our gun rights. Heh.

The lefts usage of “assault weapons” is pardon the pun –a “trigger word”.

Officer Leroy Pyle debunks myths about semi-autos. He uses demonstrations with live firearms and congressional testimony by DEA, ATF and FBI agents to show what the truth really is.

Backdoor Oppression: Wife Of Obama Media Director Launched Petition To Fire George Will From WaPo

June 12, 2014 at 1:22 pm

FemNazi Nita Chaudhary’s claim that while at MoveOn.org she “worked to protect constitutional liberties” is ludicrous. Progressives and constitutional liberties are like oil and water.
Nita Chaudhary wife of obama media director jesee lee launched fire george will petition

The Regime’s bag of oppressive tyrannical tricks overfloweth.
The Weekly Standard:

Last week, George Will wrote a column about how progressive politics have fomented “rape culture” on college campuses. The column was not well received by some, or even, as a great many of the histrionic responses would indicate, well understood. I received the following press release yesterday, headlined: “87,000 Call on The Washington Post to Address Sexism, Fire George Will.” A group called UltraViolet was touting the success of an online petition they’d whipped up over the controversy. From the release:

“The past week has seen the Washington Post devolve to violent and shameful rhetoric that normalizes rape and violence against women. In the face of a national epidemic of sexual violence, The Washington Post should take a stand against rape– starting by firing George Will, said Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of UltraViolet. “From mocking survivors to misleading the public on demands for college sexual assault reform and blaming women for violence against them– the Post has left the realm of honest debate and entered the realm of hate-speech and dog whistles.”

……

Chaudhary is also the wife of Jesse Lee, the White House’s director of progressive media and online response. In fact, Valerie Jarrett helped Lee propose to Chaudhary at a State Dinner. In past administrations, positions such as the one held by Lee charged with partisan media strategies and rapid response were outsourced to the party organizations, so as not to politicize the presidency. Alas, this White House lacks that kind of respect for the office.
……
I think we can safely conclude that Chaudhary and Lee don’t believe in the meaningful kind of free speech. Certainly, the demand to fire George Will and otherwise pressure the Washington Post is punitive and calculated to enforce conformity of thought on a difficult and contentious topic, not promote understanding. And when the common response to disagreeable opinions becomes political organizers unleashing social media lynch mobs, it opens a backdoor to total oppression.

Whether you agree with George Will or not, something all American’s who believe in “constitutional liberties” should agree on is that any Administration with ties to anti-free speech campaigns as UltraViolet’s Fire George Will campaign opens itself to accusations of oppression.

Not that I think they care. I’m just saying.

There is the possibility that George Will got under Barack’s thin skin on another matter and ‘they’ have been lying in wait. Will’s article which addressed such an emotionally charged issue as rape gave UltraViolet the perfect opportunity to launch an assault against him (progressives are all about emotional blackmail). It did not hurt their anti-free speech mission that Will skewered the Obama Administration in his article. Making the Obama Admin./Jesee Lee/ UltraViolet Nita Chaudhary ties all the more suspicious.

Read it all.
