Tonight, President Barack Obama is going to attempt a common magic trick in an attempt to make the Constitutional rights of all Americans disappear:
“We know that the killers in San Bernardino used military-style assault weapons — weapons of war — to kill as many people as they could,” the president said in a video released Saturday. “It’s another tragic reminder that here in America it’s way too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on a gun.”
“Right now, people on the no-fly list can walk into a store and buy a gun. That is insane,” the president said. “If you’re too dangerous to board a plane, you’re too dangerous, by definition, to buy a gun.”
He called on Congress to close the loophole, saying that while the nation may not be able to prevent every tragedy, “at a bare minimum, we shouldn’t be making it so easy for potential terrorists or criminals to get their hands on a gun that they could use against Americans.”
Obama is addressing the nation tonight, and you’re going to see him attempt to say one thing, and do another.
Obama is going to claim that he wants to summarily strip the constitutional rights of Americans citizens and resident aliens on the “no fly” list without due process, in clear violation of the Constitution. He does not have evidence that anyone on this list is about to commit a crime, or the FBI would arrest them. Instead, he’s asking to “Minority Report” them, and strip them of their liberties because they might one day commit crimes.
But it’s even worse that it seems.
In public, Obama is speaking the words “no-fly” list, but what Democrats are actually pushing is legislation stripping the rights of citizens in a much larger and broader group, in which you can find yourself at any time for any reason, or not reason at all. This much larger list that is the subject of Democrat legislation is the so-called “terror watch list.”
You can find yourself on the terror watch list for merely knowing, living near, or working with someone that has shown up on either the no-fly or terror watch lists, or for much more mundane activities, such as mistakenly using an expired credit card attempting to book a flight.
You can find yourself on the terror watch list if you say or watch something that someone in the Obama Administration doesn’t like, as I did in January of 2013 for pointing out that our power grid is a soft target for terrorism, or numerous other journalists have from writing articles critical of Barack Obama.
There are a million people on this utterly arbitrary terror watch list, and 40% of them have no ties of any kind to terrorist groups. Obama’s government has arbitrary added roughly 300,000 people to this list for no reason whatsoever, and now wants to use this enemies list to strip the rights of American citizens that he doesn’t like.
He’s claiming that he wants to keep us safe from terrorism.
What he’s actually doing is attempting to create a “enemies list” loophole where he and his allies can arbitrarily suspend your constitutional rights without due process if he doesn’t like what you say, whom you associate with, or whom you support politically, as he did to many supporters of the Tea Party prior to the 2012 elections.
Obama has used the IRS, FBI, and EPA against American citizens before, and wants to expand his reach.
Obama is addressing the nation tonight to beg you to give him fascist powers.
Germany was blind enough to give these powers to an elected leader in the 1930s.
My fellow Americans, we now know what that looks like. Let’s not repeat their mistakes and give up our liberties to a power-mad fraud of a President.
