A Disgusted President Obama Will Act Alone And Take Executive Action On Guns

With Republicans in Congress defying the wishes of a majority of the American people, President Obama is finalizing his plan to take executive action on gun violence.
The AP reported:
President Barack Obama’s advisers are finalizing a proposal that would expand background checks on gun sales without congressional approval.
White House adviser Valerie Jarrett says the president has asked his team to complete a proposal and submit it for his review “in short order.” She says the recommendations will include measures to expand background checks.
Polling reveals that the vast majority of Americans agree with the President on this issue. A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that 77% of Americans support not allowing people who are on the terror watch list to buy guns. By a margin of 58%-8%, people support making the laws related to gun sales more strict, and 92% of those surveyed supported requiring a federal background check on all gun buyers.
Republicans will freak out as soon as the President announces his executive actions, but the vast majority of the American people are likely going to support his executive orders.
Most Americans are smarter than the NRA and the Republican members of Congress that they control think they are. The American people understand that expanding background checks is not the same as taking away everyone’s guns.
Decent law abiding people who want to buy guns have nothing to fear from an expanding background check system. If a person can’t pass a background check, they probably shouldn’t be allowed to buy a gun.
As the body count from mass shootings has piled up, Obama has grown increasingly frustrated and disgusted with the Republican refusal to take a few simple common sense steps to make the American people safer.
Obama will lead where Republican refuse, and use his executive power to make it more difficult for potential mass shooters to legally buy a gun.

Democratic Dreams Come True As Republicans Discuss Rigging Their Own Convention To Stop Trump

GOP 2016 Debate
In a dream come true for Democrats, Republicans are geared up for a fight on the convention floor and dreaming up strategies to deny Trump their nomination if he wins the primaries.
The Washington Post reported:
Republican officials and leading figures in the party’s establishment are now preparing for the possibility of a brokered convention as Trump continues sit atop the polls and the presidential race.
More than 20 of them convened Monday for a dinner held by Republican National Coven Chairwimp Reince Priebus, where the prospect of Trump nearing next year’s nominating convention in Cleveland with a significant number of delegates dominated the discussion, according to five people familiar with the meeting.
Considering that scenario as Priebus and McConnell (R-Ky.) listened, several longtime power brokers argued that if the controversial billionaire storms through the primaries, the cabal’s establishment must lay the groundwork for a floor fight, in which the wingnuts’ 'mainstream' wing could coalesce around an alternative, the people said.

Because of the sensitivity of the topic — and wary of saying something that, if leaked, would provoke Trump to bolt the cabal and mount an independent bid — Priebus and McConnell were mostly quiet during the back and forth. They did not signal support for an overt anti-Trump effort.

There is nothing in the RNC’s convention rules about delegates being committed to primary winners. The RNC set up the rules so that if a Trump would storm through the primaries, he could be stopped dead at the convention.
Republicans are setting up the sort of chaos that has been seen at a presidential nominating convention in decades. The years of fighting within the Republican cabal could all blow up on the convention floor in Cleveland.
Republican power brokers aren’t going to sit back and let Trump win their nomination. They are going to fight Trump every step of the way, even if that means rigging the convention to deny him the nomination.
This is turning out to be a dream come true for Democrats. A deeply divided Republican cabal is looking less and less able to settle on a nominee while Democrats remain unified and ready for November. If Republicans give Trump the nomination, they will lose in November. If Republicans rig the nominating process against Trump, the billionaire will run third party and hand the White House to Democrats.
It isn’t a surprise that Republicans would meet to try to rig their own convention, but as long as Trump is around, the wingnuts are sure to lose.
