Obama Inc Trying to Use Banks to Destroy Gun Manufacturers

There were fairly clear policy rules once upon a time. If you wanted to pass gun control, you would get up, use a bunch of kids as props and put in a Senate bill that would get the job done. That’s still being done, but it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Obama Inc. is consolidating control over the economy which puts its minions in the position of being able to make policy through economic pressure and policy. Under Socialism, you don’t have to pass a law, you just have to use your economic control to make the companies enforce the law.

Growing government control over banks and investment companies, directly and indirectly, allows those institutions to be used to target firearms manufacturers.

Cerberus was bullied into dropping the Freedom Group which includes Remington and Bushmaster. Bushmaster has become a special target for the anti-2nd amendment movement. Now Rahm Emanuel is demanding that TD Bank and Bank of America end their lines of credit to firearms manufacturers unless they come out in support of Obama’s war on the Bill of Rights.

This is an unacceptable level of interference in the political system. The Party that claims to be upset at corporate influence over politics is trying to forcibly create a corporate lobby in favor of abrogating the Bill of Rights by exploiting their leverage over banks and the leverage of banks over private companies.

We’re not just talking creepy, we’re talking about a level of Totalitarian Socialism that would be shocking even in Europe. What we are really seeing is a preview of Term 2. A term when all the rules have gone out the window and when Obama Inc. has set aside all the disguises to function as the left-wing terrorist group that it is.

Ace makes an important distinction between liberals and leftists in terms of process…

Liberalism is highly concerned with process. Both the liberal version of classic liberalism and the conservative version of classic liberalism consider process (fairness, equal access, and other such concerns) to be almost as vital as outcomes.

Actually, in reality, process is more important than outcomes, as far as the long-term health of a democracy, and all politically-minded people tend to put outcomes over process; we all do it, we all lapse. But generally we keep process firmly in mind, even if we don’t quite give it the priority it deserves.

But leftism is a different beast. Leftism considers concerns of process to be a weakness, and indulgence for sissies and the faint-hearts; the only thing that matters — the only thing that should be a concern for the properly-masculine, properly-indoctrinated New Man of the Left is outcomes.

Any tactic, fair or foul, is permissible in the quest for the Leftist State.

That is where we are at now. Process no longer matters. The filibuster is evil when there’s a Dem majority. It’s good when there’s a Dem minority. Freedom of speech is bad when used by the right and good when used by the left. ID’s are vital for getting into their conventions, but not for voting. When Obama fails to appoint women, it’s not a problem. When Romney does appoint women, it’s binders joke time.

There are no standards. No set values. No more concern with process. Only the will to power. The determination to do anything it takes to get their way with no more thought for any laws or ethics. The left is getting its Pol Pot on.

      Rules for Radicals rules the leftist roost and nothing will stop them, unless massive patriotic push back is employed.

      In fact, now that patriots know what's up, perhaps contacting TD etc, and telling them accounts will be pulled if they accede to muscle politics, will give them pause.

      Either way, the left is gunning for the Second Amendment and the destruction of the economy – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/07/barack-hussei

    pull our money out and shut the banks down,,, see how that works…..

  • Ar'nun

    It makes you think that the Israel Divestment movement was a trial run for shutting down American companies they don't like.

      They're all interlinked. These are left-wing tactics they deploy for control and intimidation.

    The tenacles of evil, i.e., Progressiveism, reach everywhere. As the Progressives strangle and destroy more of our foundations, their power grows. Evil has no standards and no limits. Progressives are a greater evil than other totalitarians because they have successfully used all of the tactics of other totalitarians while succeeding in making their true agenda appear benevolent and a champion of humanity.

    If we are not willing to question his background, i.e. maybe get an answer as to whether he was or was not a citizen of Indonesia as a child? How he paid for Harvard? What the Founders meant when they inserted the term 'natural born citizen' into presidential requirements? If you're not willing to ask these basic questions then don't complain about everyone else bowing down to Dear Leader.

    As clever as a sociopath. Wait a minute………

    This isn't a good idea.

    TD is a Canadian Bank. They should pull out of USA rather than submit to that.

  • Adolf Hitler

    This is an impeachable act , its called blackmail. They are blackmailing T.D. bank.

  • RedWhiteAndJew

    And the vast majority of lefties will see absolutely nothing wrong with any of this, because they want a king, not a republic.

    Rule of law is so 1776.

  • RedWhiteAndJew

    ID’s are vital for getting into their conventions, but not for voting.

    And exercising your 2nd Amendment rights, don't forget. It's not like deciding who will run (or more accurately "rule" in this case) the country is more important than buying a .22 for your son.
