Nancy Pelosi: No Matter What Congress Says, Gun Control Is “Inevitable”

 

After President Obama’s aggressive push for gun control went down in flames on Wednesday, Pelosi immediately promised the American people that she would continue to ignore her oath of office and, instead, attack the Constitution.

 

Nancy Pelosi has been sworn into Congress eleven times. Each time, she has taken the same oath to defend the American Constitution. This oath states, in relevant part, that “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same….”

Proving that both her listening and critical thinking skills are a bit sub par, Pelosi believes she’s taken a different oath, one that obligates her and her fellow Congressmen to “protect and defend the constitution and the American people.” In other words, based on an imaginary oath to protect and defend the American people, she is violating her real oath to protect and defend the American Constitution.

After President Obama’s aggressive push for gun control went down in flames on Wednesday, Pelosi immediately promised the American people that she would continue to ignore her oath of office and, instead, attack the Constitution. During a press conference, she announced that gun control is “inevitable.” Said Pelosi, “It’s a matter of time. It might be inconceivable to the NRA that this might happen; it’s inevitable to us.”

Ignoring that recent polls show that only 4% of the American people give the gun control issue priority in their lives, Pelosi blithely announced that “Something must be done, because that’s what the American people expect and what they deserve. We’re just not taking no for an answer.”

Using the usual illogical thinking we’ve come to expect from Democrats, she attacked those Democrats who voted against gun control of turning their back on public safety – even though there’s no evidence that any of the proposed legislation would keep guns out of the hands of criminals and crazy people. Buoyed by magical thinking, Pelosi tried to shame those Democrats who placed their careers and the Second Amendment ahead of the Progressives’ gun grab, people control agenda:

 

It always makes me wonder at a time like this how important we each think we are, that any one of us thinks our survival politically is more important than the safety of our children, that we can’t have the courage to take a vote. You’re afraid of the gun lobby? How about the fear of the children who had to face that violence in the classroom?

Now that you’ve had a moment to laugh at Pelosi’s ignorance and irrational thinking, remember that this is not the time for those who genuinely support the Constitution to relax.  The Left, in its overwhelming arrogance, will never stop its quest to disarm American citizens. Because we know human nature, and because we know evil exists, we also know that there will be other Sandy Hooks, and that the Progressives will again try not to let a crisis go to waste.

Even though the gun bills died in the Senate, they didn’t in Connecticut, or New York, or Colorado, or Maryland.  It’s up to us to remind other Americans that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. If we give up on this message, then the next time something bad happens, or the time after that, or even the time after that, Nancy Pelosi will win.

USAF TOOK NANCY PELOSI’S JET AWAY

(DailyPaul) -It’s Gone, gone, gone never to return. Nancy’s jet is gone!!!!

Now if they would just limit the flights of the President’s wife, we could save a lot more….

There is a God………….now if someone, even a UFO could take Obama away we’d be doing better.

This was long overdue!

They should publish this for all elected officials
What a waste of Tax Payer’s money!

USAF TOOK NANCY PELOSI’S JET AWAY

Well, looks like the old broad of the House will have to pay her own way back and forth to California (mexifornia). The Air Force took her jet away from her. Read the article below.

The real reason that Nancy Pelosi is considering retiring is that they took her Jet away. Ah, poor baby!!

Ah, poor baby!!

As a result of a Judicial Watch filing under the Freedom of Information Act, the USAF released documents detailing House Speaker Pelosi’s use of United States Air Force aircraft between March 2009 and June 2010.
http://www.norcalblogs.com/post_scripts/2011/03/a-women-who-…

The data are published in the Judicial Watch Verdict of December 2010, Volume 16, Issue 12.

Here are the main highlights revealed by the USAF. Keep in mind that all the data below relate to United States Air Force aircraft used by one woman over a sixteen month period.

Several of these flights included Ms. Pelosi’s guests, such as grown
children, grandchildren, various in-laws, friends and hangers-on. Over 95% of the trips were between the west coast and Washington DC, for what you might call a commute between home and the office.

READ it and WEEP!!

Total trips: 85 over a 68 week period, or 1.25 average trips per week.

Total mileage: 206,264 miles, or 2,427 average miles per trip.

Totalflying time: 428.6 hours, or an average of 5 hours per trip.

Cost to the taxpayers: $2,100,744, or $27,715 per trip, or $1,285,162 per year!

Cost of in flight food and alcohol: $101,429; $1,193 per trip; $62,051 per year.

On one junket to Baghdad, according to the Air Force report, she had the aircraft bar stocked with Johnny Walker Red Scotch, Grey Goose Vodka, E&J Brandy, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Maker’s Mark Whiskey, Courvoisier Cognac, Bacardi Rum, Jim Beam Whiskey, Beefeater Gin, Dewar’s Scotch, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Jack Daniels Whiskey, Corona Beer and several varieties of wine. This was obviously a very important “gubment bidness” trip.

Evidence generally speaks for itself, and in Ms. Pelosi’s case it speaks the language of abuse and (evidently) a serious familial drinking problem, for in a single year she and her spawn drank an amount in excess of the net income of the average employed American! When she said, “… If the stimulus doesn’t pass, five hundred million people might lose their jobs…”, I thought she was unintentionally revealing her ignorance. I’m now more inclined to think she was pickled.

Even though she can no longer abuse the USAF, she can either fly
on her broom, or fly Southwest Airlines, where bags fly free.

Pelosi: More Gun Control Needed Because ‘We Took an Oath to Protect and Defend’

(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said action must be taken in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School because members of Congress took an oath to “protect and defend,” although the actual oath says to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States ….”

Pelosi held a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee hearing on “Gun Violence Prevention: A Call to Action,” where she endorsed the gun control proposals President Barack Obama unveiled today.

“Earlier this month, shortly after Newtown, all members of Congress took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and the American people,” Pelosi said. “To protect and defend. That is our first responsibility.”

 

“Today, members of the House Democratic Caucus have come together to fulfill that duty to confront the challenge of gun violence in our society and act to ensure the safety and security of our communities,” she said.

President Obama and Democrats have called for stricter gun control legislation in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shooting, in addition to the 23 executive orders signed by Obama today. Gun rights groups, including the National Rifle Association (NRA), have pushed back against new gun laws, saying they will infringe on the right to bear arms guaranteed by the 2nd amendment to the Constitution.

The oath taken by members of Congress as they are sworn in does not include the phrase “protect and defend,” nor does it include anything about protecting the American people, though it does include a vow to defend the Constitution.

According to the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Speaker of the House administers the following oath to members:

“I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

The presidential oath of office, however, states, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

During the hearing, Pelosi praised the 23 executive orders issued by Obama and endorsed his call to reinstate the 1994 “assault weapons” ban, implement a universal background check system and institute a ban on magazines holding more than 10 rounds.

The Democrat hearing included testimony from Janet Robinson, the superintendent of schools of Newtown, Conn., where gunman Adam Lanza murdered 20 first graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14.

Other witnesses included Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter; Scott Knight, chief of police of Chaska, Minnesota; and Emily Nottingham, the mother of Gabe Zimmerman, a staff member to former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was killed during the Tucson, Arizona shooting.

“We look forward to hearing their ideas and testimony and answering the call to action on gun violence prevention,” Pelosi said. “We are especially pleased to be doing so on the day when our president—as we continue to mourn for the families of Newtown—has told us that the time for action is now.”

“We must do everything in our power to stop this terrifying violence in the future,” she said. “We recognize that these challenges are not new, and as President Obama said so eloquently in the days following the shooting, we can’t tolerate this anymore.”

“These tragedies must end and to end them we must change, he said, and today the president put his proposals on the table,” Pelosi said. “He outlined 23 executive actions the administration is taking right now, he demanded action from Congress on establishing a universal background check system, restoring the ban on assault weapons, banning high capacity assault magazines, putting more police officers on our streets. We must address issues of mental health, keeping weapons out of the hands of those in danger of doing harm to themselves or to others.”

“These common-sense proposals, among others, represents steps we can take and must take right away to put a stop to the violence,” she said. “As the president said today, this time must be different.

“We agree,” she said.

While an autopsy was performed on the Sandy Hook killer, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who committed suicide at the scene, toxicology reports for him have not been completed. The toxicology tests could show whether there were psychiatric medications or illegal drugs in Lanza’s system.
