In his speech on the Umpqua Community College shooting in Oregon last week, President Obama sounded more upset about America's gun laws than about the horrific massacre.

We barely had the preliminary facts about the shooting, the shooter and the victims, and he was already lecturing the nation again on gun control.

Instead of calling the nation to prayer, he said we would learn about the victims in the coming days and then "wrap everyone who's grieving with our prayers and our love." Those words out of the way, he immediately pivoted to complaining that "our thoughts and prayers are not enough. It's not enough. It does not capture the heartache and grief and anger that we should feel (or) prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America -- next week or a couple of months from now."

We didn't hear much "heartache and grief" in his speech, but his anger was palpable. It wasn't anger at the shooter, and it wasn't sympathy for the victims. It was outrage -- or apparent outrage -- at America's Second Amendment advocates.

"We are the only advanced country on earth," said Obama, "that sees these kinds of mass shootings every few months. ... The United States ... is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense gun-safety laws -- even in the face of repeated mass killings." He said these events happen so often that they've "become routine. ... We've become numb to this."
Douglas Holtz-Eakin of American Action Forum noted this morning that the clock was ticking on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), as no one wants to be dealing with this when election season gets going.  The deal is projected to add $80 billion in national income, with an additional $125 billion in exports. The trade deal, which involved 40 percent of the world’s economy, apparently reached an agreement in Atlanta after days of negotiations.

According to The New York Times, the deal would gradually eliminate thousands of trade tariffs, establish rules for intellectual property, expand Internet rights, curb wildlife trafficking, and protect against environmental abuses. Nevertheless, President Obama still faces an uphill battle in Congress, where anti-trade Democrats and Tea Party Republicans refuse to support the deal for various reasons. Democrats think that the agreement will further gut American jobs for working class Americans, while conservatives don’t want to give any more power to Obama–and also have taken a more populist tone on trade. As for progressives, they’re skeptical that this agreement would improve labor conditions and protect the environment:
The Pacific accord would phase out thousands of import tariffs as well as other barriers to international trade. It also would establish uniform rules on corporations’ intellectual property, open the Internet even in communist Vietnam and crack down on wildlife trafficking and environmental abuses. […]

Islamic State blows up ancient Arch of Triumph in Palmyra
Besides removing supposed temptations to idolatry, Islamic jihadists want to destroy the artifacts of non-Muslim civilizations because doing so testifies to the truth of Islam, as the Qur’an suggests that the destroyed remnants of ancient non-Muslim civilizations are a sign of Allah’s punishment of those who rejected his truth: Many were the Ways of Life […]

OBAMA NOT WELCOME in Roseburg, visit would be ‘very inappropriate’ after he politicized shooting, says Oregon Newspaper Publisher

Barack Obama would not be welcome in town after politicizing the deadly shooting at Umpqua Community College on October 1. The publisher of Roseburg’s largest newspaper, the Roseburg Beacon, said Obama visit would be “very inappropriate” after he politicized the shooting.

I live blogged Obama’s rush to the microphone in the wake of the Oregon mass murder. The blood was still warm, the victims still being counted.

Here is what I said:
Obama exploited the horror and bloodshed in Oregon to warn of executive action on the second amendment. Imagine — making his bones on the bones of dead students.
He is loathsome.
He shrugged off the motive, implying it was irrelevant.
Does he really believe that? It’s...


Obama Working on More Gun Control Executive Actions

                                                                                      President Barack Obama is working on more executive actions related to gun control following the shooting on an Oregon college campus last week that left nine dead.
                                                                                          "It's a high priority and will continue to be until we start to see more progress on this issue in this town," White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said during the daily briefing on Monday.

Earnest said Obama was working behind the scenes to find ways to take actions, Breitbart reported.

Obama enacted 23 executive actions in 2013 following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. He has expressed unhappiness that the Republican-controlled Congress has not taken action itself.

Earnest said he disagrees with anyone claiming that Obama did not offer specific proposals in his press conference about the shooting last week.

"I can tell you that they're not stumped, they're continuing to review the law that's on the books and continuing to consult with legal authorities but also others who may have ideas about what steps that can be taken to keep guns out of the hands of criminals," he said.
