The Bill Keith Report and Commentary

From My Cold Dead Hands

     This week President Obama, the most imperial president in this nation’s history, issued another unconstitutional executive order making it more difficult for the American people to purchase guns.

     Some argue it is just a simple background check of the buyer and applies essentially to guns purchased in gun shows. However, statistics show that not a single act of terror has been recorded by any shooter who purchased his guns at gun shows.

     Here’s really what is going on. Obama’s executive order is just another ploy to give the U. S. Justice Department more and more control over the American people and to provide a larger data base of gun owners.

     The President really has his nerve. He and former Attorney General Eric Holder conspired to give 2,500 guns to Mexican drug cartels -including automatic weapons – knowing the cartels would use the guns to kill Americans – which they did – and then Obama/Holder could say that all guns should be confiscated since even the cartels in Mexico are able to purchase them. But, of course, the scheme backfired.

     What a disgrace. It seems that after every shooting – whether by a terrorist or someone mentally deranged – Obama’s answer is to take the guns away from the good people.

     Charlton Heston, the far-famed Hollywood actor in “The Ten Commandments” and “Ben Hur” and a hundred other movies, during his later years was president of the National Rifle Association. I once had the privilege of interviewing him and his dear wife.

     Below is his now-famous speech he delivered to an NRA Convention commonly known as “From My Dead Hands.” It’s only six-minutes long but a message we all should hear – again and again.

Judge Janine Pirro to President Obama: “Stop blaming guns and start shooting terrorists.”

Something to Think About

    The liberal left politicians and their fellow travelers in the mainstream news media often hammer gun owners by saying that the United States is third among the nations of the world in murders.

     That is true. But if you take away the murders in four major cities – Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans and Washington, D. C. – cities all controlled by democrats – the United States is fourth from the bottom of the nations of the world in murders.

     These four cities have some of the strongest gun-control laws in the world.

The Social Security Disgrace

     All of you senior readers of The Bill Keith Report have received the bad news that there will be no cost-of-living increase in your social security checks this year. That is a disgrace.

     The millions of federal employees will get a pay raise. But nothing for the elderly.

     Obama will give $150 billion to Iran to entice them to sign a flawed nuclear arms treaty. But nothing for the elderly.

     Obama’s personal travel and vacation expenses now exceed $70 billion including $470,000 a day on his current Hawaiian vacation. But nothing for the elderly.

     There was $50 billion in Medicare fraud last year. But nothing for the elderly.

     Comment: What makes this such a disgrace is that we older folks have invested trillions and trillions of dollars into the social security fund which bears annual interest. But the President and Congress have decided to use that interest money to fund other programs.

It’s Your Money

     The Omnibus Spending Bill just passed by Congress is a slap in the face of every conservative in this land, the very conservatives who sent these men and women to Congress.

     The spending bill includes $1.14 trillion in new spending that will push the national debt close to $20 trillion. But that’s not all:

     It fully funds Obamacare.

     It fully funds Planned Parenthood.

     It fully funds sanctuary cities.

     It fully funds executive amnesty for aliens.

     It fully funds questionable climate change programs to the tune of $22 billion.

     It fully funds refugee resettlement programs for tens of thousands of aliens entering the U.S.

     It increases foreign-worker visas. This money will fund the issuance of some 300,000 visas to immigrants from Muslim countries this year.

     Comment: Hence, the insanity continues! What’s such a travesty is that it was not the democrat-controlled Congress that passed the bill giving the President everything he wanted. It was a republican-controlled Congress. What is so humiliating to we conservatives is that we were told if we would elect republicans to Congress, they would oppose all the above-mentioned programs.

     And, to make matters worse, most of the immigrants from the Middle East are Muslims and includes very few Christians who live under the specter of genocide from the Muslims in their lands.

     Now I can understand why the Rev. Franklin Graham has left the Republican Party.

     The republican congress really sold republicans down the river.

White Privilege?

     There’s a lot of talk about “white privilege” these days. We hear it from liberal democrats, the news media and even from the White House.

     But what about this: In 1990, the IRS confiscated singer Willie Nelson’s bank accounts and real estate holdings for a $16 million tax debt.

     Currently, black activist Al Sharpton owes $17 million in back taxes, yet he is a regular visitor to the Obama White House.

     White privilege?

Hillary – Is There No Shame?

     A majority of the family members who lost loved ones in the Benghazi terrorist attack in 2012 were told by Hillary Clinton that the attack was caused by a YouTube video about the Prophet Mohammed, according to Eagle Rising.

     Now Hillary says all of the family members are lying, that she never told them the video was responsible for the attack.

     In an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News, when asked about the video, she replied: “No. They’re liars. I’m telling the truth. Only stupid people would believe these families over me. This is all part of the ‘vast right-wing conspiracy’ against me and my family.”

     Comment: As one commentator said she’s “smearing the grieving families of dead men to suit her own purposes. It doesn’t get much worse than this.”

     I raise this question: Why would all of the families say the same thing, that she told them all that the attack was brought on by the video? Of course we know the answer. Barack Obama was running for president and had told the American people al-Qaeda had been contained. So a White House aide concocted the video lie and Hillary followed the party line.

The Border, Drug Traffic and Illegal Aliens

     What are the leading causes of death in the U.S.? Liberal politicians would try to convince us that it is firearms.

     But the truth is that drug overdose is the leading cause of death in this land, according to CNS News. And where do most of the drugs come from? Across our border with Mexico. Motor vehicle accidents and firearms are number two and three.

     The most recent data available is from 2013 when 46,471 people in the U. S. died of drug overdoses. “That compares with 35,369 who died in motor vehicle crashes and 33,636 who died from firearms,” CNS said.

     Comment: Remember, as I’ve already said, the predominance of deaths from guns is in four major cities: Detroit, Chicago, New Orleans and Washington, D.C.

Commentary

President Obama’s Refugee Resettlement Program

     President Obama has already brought more than 100,000 Syrian refugees into the U.S. and another 100,000 is on their way. Neither Congress nor the American people were informed concerning the first group brought into the country.

     Gov. John Kasich of Ohio said a large group of Syrians were relocated in his state yet no one in Washington told him they were being sent there.

     Apparently there is little-to-no notification of the governors of the various states where the immigrants are being sent.

     No one knows for sure how much this relocation program will cost the American taxpayers but it will be astronomical for all of them will immediately receive a full range of welfare benefits.

     But there is a more serious problem.

     James Clapper, director of National Intelligence, has informed the President that the vetting process for the Syrians entering this country may not detect ISIS terrorists. Of course the problem is that there is no data base for most of the refugees so it would be a simple matter for an ISIS operative to join their ranks and enter this country.

     Also, FBI Director James Comey, agreed with Clapper that it will be virtually impossible to ensure that no ISIS operatives will not enter this land with the refugees.

     Yet Obama has turned a deaf ear to the two men charged with providing security for the American people. Just as he would not listen to his generals when he withdrew all troops from Iraq where his action created a vacuum in that land that led to the rise of ISIS.

     We all would do well to remember the 19 terrorists who bombed the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and crashed another plane in Pennsylvania. In all, 2,996 died in the various attacks including the 19 hijackers.

     All 19 were vetted – or had background checks – by federal officials yet they all managed to enter this land.

     Unfortunately, the federal government doesn’t do anything very well, particularly when it comes to immigration.
