More unConstitutional Executive Orders from Dictator Obama.  – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor

A new round of sanctions by the United States targets Russia’s financial, energy and defense sectors.

The Executive Order signed on Wednesday by President Barack Obama is being called  ”evil” by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and bans, among other things, the sale of all Russian-made AK-47 semi-automatic rifles, Saiga-12 shotguns, and all other firearms and parts manufactured by Kalishnikov Concern.

According to the U.S. Treasury Department, Americans will still be able to purchase AK-47′s in the secondary market, as long as Kalishnikov Concern does not have a direct financial interest in the transaction.

If a U.S. person is in possession of a Kalashnikov Concern product that was bought and fully paid for prior to the date of designation (i.e., no payment remains due to Kalashnikov Concern), then that product is not blocked and OFAC sanctions would not prohibit the U.S. person from keeping or selling the product in the secondary market so long as Kalashnikov Concern has no interest in the transaction.

The Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control released a statement advising concerned U.S. gun owners that, while they can still sell existing stocks of AK-47′s and other firearms on the importation ban list, new purchases from the Russian-based manufacturers by private or commercial gun interests have been outlawed.

According to Kurt Nimmo of Infowars the President’s unilateral move by way of Executive Order could usher in a new era of gun restrictions across the United States without Congressional oversight, “The criminalization of an entire line of foreign manufactured firearms is possible under ‘national emergency powers’ and there is no appeal process.”

Last year President Obama vowed to push forward on gun control with Congressional approval, a promise that prompted Americans to clear retail store shelves of ammunition and drive the price of firearms like AK-47′s and AR-15 semi-automatic rifles to double or triple within just a few months. Within a week of vowing to act independently of an elected Congress, the Obama administration began exploring methods to completely ban the importation of ammunition, magazines and gun accessories from international manufactures.

Earlier this year, during the opening salvos of the Ukrainian conflict, it was believed that Obama was implementing a ban on ammunition originating from Russia and Russian-friendly states. Russian manufacturers responded to the rumors by claiming they were not aware of any such restrictions, though it is clear that they are now in the Obama administration’s sights.

The targeting of ammunition through heavy taxation has been a strategy that the anti-gun lobby has tried in states like Illinois. And, in November of last year the US government shut down America’s last lead smeltering plant because of new  EPA regulations, making it nearly impossible for US ammunition manufacturers to source their raw materials from the United States.

With sanctions now targeting the defense sectors of foreign companies whose governments are friendly to Russia and no ability to produce lead-based ammunition in the U.S., the time is ripe for the Obama administration to circumvent the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment altogether by taking Executive actions under the guise of national security concerns..

With the stroke of a pen President Obama has banned tens of thousands of firearms. Under such an approach the President could effectively target a wide variety of gun-related industries including the raw materials suppliers and parts manufacturers. This could potentially have the effect of not just banning importation of firearms, but making it nearly impossible for US-based manufacturers of firearms, ammunition and accessories to produce their products if any of their raw materials are sourced outside of the United States.

The Obama administration has already begun targeting legally operated retail suppliers of firearms by classifying them as high-risk businesses like pornography, which has lead to their transaction processing and bank accounts being shut down by some of America’s top banking institutions.

The attack against the Second Amendment continues on all fronts and the end goal is a total ownership ban of the some 300 million firearms held in the possession of law abiding American citizens.

Oath Keepers Merchandise

  1. “The Executive Order signed on Wednesday by President Barack Obama…” is creating legislation, a power denied to both the executive and judicial branches by the use of the word “All” and naming exactly who shall have that duty in Article. I. Section. 1.

    “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

    Here are the duties assigned to US presidents:
    Section. 2.
    – The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, WHEN CALLED INTO THE ACTUAL SERVICE OF THE UNITED STATES;

    – he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices,

    – and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

    – He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur;

    – and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: BUT THE CONGRESS MAY BY LAW VEST THE APPOINTMENT OF such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

    – The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

    Section. 3. He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient;

    – he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them,

    – and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper;

    – he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers;

    – he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed,

    – and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

    No where does it say that ANY person who serves within the federal government as president of the USA can created legislation. Yes, NOT even by executive orders.

    Those who serve as US presidents, nor any who serve within the legislative or judicial branches are NOT rulers here in America, but are people put into place to carry out specific duties that they give a lawfully required binding-on-them-personally OATH. It is a felony to not keep the Oath.

    So when are the charges against them for War crimes (already indicted for 1st term), Identity Fraud/ID Theft, Impersonating a US President, First Degree Murder, Terrorist activity against the US people (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.), Selling Arms to known foreign terrorists and foreign gangs (Fast & Furious, Benghazi), MisUsing our military for UN war efforts & Mass Murder,

    President Obama had/has taken an oath to uphold all the laws and he had/has violated his duties as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer (Precedent *Clinton near Impeachment)

    The Constitution of the United States specifies that an officer is to be impeached for “high crimes and misdemeanors”; experts agree that impeachment is permitted for noncriminal misconduct (e.g., violation of the Constitution), and can include criminal/civil actions.
    It has invited considerable debate, but it is generally read to mean both indictable offenses and other serious noncriminal misconduct. The latter has included corruption, dereliction of constitutional duty, and violation of limitations on the power of an office.
    Actions he committed against our laws require prosecution.

    The meanings of the words in the Oath: “I”- an individual, person, citizen, one member of the whole, officer; “do” – perform, accomplish, act, carry out, complete, achieve, execute; “solemnly”- somberly, gravely, seriously, earnestly, sincerely, firmly, fervently, with thought and ceremony; “swear (or affirm)” – vow, pledge, promise, guarantee; “that I will” – a positive phrase confirming present and future action, momentum, determination, resolve, responsibility, willpower, and intention; “preserve” – to keep safe from injury, harm, or destruction; “protect” – to cover or shield from exposure, injury, damage, or destruction, to maintain the status or integrity of especially through financial or legal guarantees, to provide a guard or shield; “and defend” – protect, guard, preserve, secure, shield, look after; “the Constitution of the United States.”
    The three branches of our government, the military, all law enforcement, the heads of the States, all federal employees are required to take an Oath to Support and Defend the Constitution and not an individual leader, ruler, office, or entity. Once given, the Oath is binding for life, unless renounced, refused, and abjured. It does not cease upon the occasions of leaving office or of discharge.
    The meanings of the words in the Oath for everyone else: “I”- an individual, person, citizen, one member of the whole, officer; “do” – perform, accomplish, act, carry out, complete, achieve, execute; “solemnly”- somberly, gravely, seriously, earnestly, sincerely, firmly, fervently, with thought and ceremony; “swear (or affirm)” – vow, pledge, promise, guarantee; “that I will” – a positive phrase confirming present and future action, momentum, determination, resolve, responsibility, willpower, and intention; “support” – uphold, bear, carry, sustain, maintain; “and defend” – protect, guard, preserve, secure, shield, look after; “the Constitution of the United States.”

  2. Resist.
    Do NOT Obey.
    Non Compliance in mass.

    An anti-American TRAITOR is posing as president.
    Obamunistas are the true ENEMY of EVERY freedom loving American.
    Impeach. Arrest. Put the TRAITORS in prison.
    This is AMERICA. NOT Amerika.

    RESIST. Take back our Republic.

  3. Its an ILLEGAL order folks and that means that we are under no obligation to obey it. The constitution is the law…Not Obama.
    Its time to take America back for the people. Lets send these treasonist bastards a solid message.
    NOT ON OUR SOIL…!!!!!

  4. Didn’t Obama lean into Medvedev and say “Tell Vladmir, when I am re-elected… or something like that?
    Do you think this is what he was intentioning?

  5. Cal,

    I have long thought “Executive orders,” were not really orders at all but directives without force or effect without consent of both houses of the legislature.
    A most evident example being demonstrated in veto power. The President’s veto power is superseded by the Congress should they decide by a majority of both houses to defeat it. Acts of Congress become law in such cases regardless the President’s dissatisfaction with intended legislation.
    He may only recommend upon veto, and send those recommendations back to Congress along with the Bill meeting his displeasure.
    Should they decide to amend they may do so. If not it may yet become law at their pleasure in its original form should they choose by majority to ignore his recommendations.
    Obama should have been impeached long ago.
    Obama is out from under any authority of the Constitution other than his trial by the Senate.
    And, he mocks both the citizens and they of those who would try him in the most egregious arrogance.
    The fact that he has not been is the most telling evidence of the failure of our elected officials to perform their Constitutionally mandated oaths. Why they are unable to do so is because they are no longer men and women of virtue or righteousness for the most part.
    Blind leading the blind as it is.
    My thoughts are we have become corrupted to such an extent as a people, we may anticipate no good.
    We reap what we sow!

  6. well I do not have any standing desire for the ak-47 it does have it’s benefits, such as the looser tolerances that make it more reliable.

    and I do not like it and frankly it is going too far, and he better not go after the IWI tavor since he wants to be buddy buddy with paalestine.

  7. they are coming, middle of the night, and they WILL take your guns. people are just not organized to stop it.

  8. so says bob.. they would have to funnel themselves down the basement steps to get mine and there is a lot of concrete cover.. like fish in a barrel.

  9. Obama just has to ban ammo manufacturers. All the government has to do is tell the ammo manufacturers that they can’t sell to retail. They will only be able to sell to the government and the military. And that will be that.
