Background Check Amendment Fails To Pass Senate, Gun Control In Tatters: Obama To Make Statement

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Following a full court press by the Obama administration, and specifically gun tzar Joe Biden, to legislate "stronger" gun law in the last several months ever since the Sandy Hook massacre, the initiative may have just suffered a terminal defeat following a failure to even pass a bipartisan background check amendment in the democrat-controlled Senate. CBS reports that "In a major setback for gun control advocates, the Senate Wednesday voted down a key amendment to the embattled Democratic gun bill, signaling the increasingly dim prospects of any meaningful legislative action aimed at strengthening America's gun laws. The bipartisan Manchin-Toomey amendment, a background check expansion devised by Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Pat Toomey, R-Pa., and a handful of other lawmakers, earned only 54 votes, falling six votes short of the 60-vote threshold. Vice President Joe Biden, who led the Obama administration's months-long lobbying effort on behalf of stronger gun laws, presided over the vote."

The vote effectively kills any hope for a comprehensive law, and makes a mockery of Obama's recent aggressive anti-gun initiative:

The failure of the Manchin-Toomey amendment, which was crafted over weeks of negotiation with the aim of attracting Republican support in both the Senate and, eventually, the House, could serve as the death knell for the larger piece of legislation, though it's possible Reid will bring new amendments to the floor at a later date.

 

In the hours before the vote, Organizing for Action, an advocacy group that works on behalf of the president's legislative agenda, urged voters to call their senators in support of expanded background checks. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent out similar emails, specifically targeting a group of Republican senators who had at one point appeared amenable to the Manchin-Toomey language. Meanwhile, a pro-gun group that had previously backed the ban pulled its support.

 

In the end, four Republicans voted in favor the Manchin-Toomey amendment, and four Democrats voted against it, excluding Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who switched his vote from yea to nay for procedural reasons.

 

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., one of those who broke with the GOP ranks, delivered a vehement defense of the bipartisan amendment in debate over the bill, and disputed the argument, touted by his fellow Republicans, that it would strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights.

 

"For over three decades in Congress, I have built as strong a record as anyone in this body in defending the Second Amendment. I have consistently opposed the efforts of anti-gun activists to ban guns and ammunition, staunchly defending the Constitutional rights that Arizonans hold dear," McCain said, continuing with a list citing his pro-gun credentials. But, he added, "Just as I have long defended the Second Amendment to the Constitution, I have also long believed that it is perfectly reasonable to use available tools to conduct limited background checks, as this amendment prescribes, to help ensure that felons and the mentally-ill do not obtain guns they should not possess."

 

"In my view, such background checks are not overly burdensome or unconstitutional," McCain said.

Obama will take the podium at 5:30 pm to speak about "commonsense measures to reduce gun violence" and justify this latest disappointment of an administration which should count its lucky stars, it has the labor force participation rate to fudge the unemployment rate with, and the Fed to ramp stocks higher, or else living in America today would be a very different thing if the full ugliness of reality was exposed for all to see.

The reason for the the PsyOps/Black Ops via the Boston Flase Flag Drill and now Ricin letters is Cover and Illusion to keep people distracted from their War Crimes.

 

U.S. Engaged in Torture After 9/11, Review Concludes WASHINGTON — A nonpartisan, independent review of interrogation and detention programs in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks concludes that “it is indisputable that the United States engaged in the practice of torture” and that the nation’s highest officials bore ultimate responsibility for it.

The sweeping, 577-page report says that while brutality has occurred in every American war, there never before had been “the kind of considered and detailed discussions that occurred after 9/11 directly involving a president and his top advisers on the wisdom, propriety and legality of inflicting pain and torment on some detainees in our custody.” The study, by an 11-member panel convened by the Constitution Project, a legal research and advocacy group, is to be released on Tuesday morning.

Debate over the coercive interrogation methods used by the administration of President George W. Bush has often broken down on largely partisan lines. The Constitution Project’s task force on detainee treatment, led by two former members of Congress with experience in the executive branch — a Republican, Asa Hutchinson, and a Democrat, James R. Jones — seeks to produce a stronger national consensus on the torture question.

Gerald Celente made a great comment once:  If the wallstreet criminals running the white-shoe orgs had names like "Giovani, Barzini, LaRocca" we'd call them the Mafia.

 

So when all the names are Rosenberg, Goldstein, kikeowittz, GoldMan-Sachs  and such, why can we not connect the dots there?  I know why Celente didn't say it:  most of his staff have similar names as are some of the women he's dated.

Infowars and PrisonPlanet have photos of Navy Seals at Boston marathon, before explosions, carrying black backpacks very similar in small stripe details to the remains of one of the exploded bomb backpacks.

Already conspiracy suggestion of a false flag attack; perhaps Navy seals again?

The Navy Seals did so well in the Osama raid that has No Evidence.

I think this is a head fake.  If they get Amnesty - they will get gun control next year.   Unless we stop amnesty and impeach this **** then we are probably toast.

Seems more likely that FBI or Homeland Security or ATF instead of the CIA staged the Sandy Hook Newtown shooting.

Umm, cannot go with you on that one.

Democracy means voting on what they want until it passes.

US Constitution is nothing more than a legend to keep the beer flowing on the 4th of July.

99% of the general government was never authorized. 

How did it get there?

Because the constitution was flipped from specific functions delegated to the general government to something that allowed usurpation of power as long as The Nine decreed it.

I know.  The majority of Canadians are great folks.  Jim Carey has not had a hit movie in ages so he did that for some evil Hollywood director.  Jay Mohr did the same thing today.  Director: You want another film?  You have to be my media whore.  It is sad that Jim went along. 

The folks out in west CA are like many Americans in the western states (freedom loving).

Jay Mohr would did sell out the mother of this children to marry a botox-infused bimbo. He's the worst Hollywood actors who will do anything for a job.

I guess they think that is they say some that some liberal movie director aka casting couch child rapist likes to hear - the fading celeb might get a job call from an agent.  Man I hate Hollywood and TV.  They lie, brainwash and abuse people.

I am not sure he is bright enough to engage in such planning. He is one dense hombre. I wonder if O picked him as insurance policy against assasination.

As for the choice, I have asked myself that and I must say, it is a tough call. Perhaps you might be right: Joe would ocassionaly make the right decisions so to benefit us all, even if by mistake .... well, the subject at hand is a wonderful ehample. After this, I wonder if he will be relegated to being O's caddy since I doubt it he will be given another task of any impo(r)tance.

I can't believe he just lumped in Aurora, IL with Chicgao in this tho.  They are SUCH the opposite of Chicago ... they have a marvelous story on actually getting ILLEGAL guns off the streets and reducing gang violence by going after the criminals, NOT the law-abiding residents.  Amazing, that, when you target those committing the crimes and actually lock 'em up, the crime stats get much BETTER.
