Clint Eastwood brings down house at GOP convention
Published August 30, 2012 Associated Press
TAMPA, Fla. – Clint Eastwood whipped up the crowd at the Republican National Convention ahead of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech.
The iconic star of “Dirty Harry” and the Oscar-winning director of “Unforgiven” and “Million Dollar Baby,” Eastwood criticized President Barack Obama for failing to turn the economy around and for wanting to close the Guantanamo Bay prison for terror suspects.
Eastwood says Obama has failed to deliver on his promises and it’s time for Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, to take over.
He entertained the audience with a mock interview with Obama, posing questions and pretending that Obama had told Eastwood to shut up.
As we face the prospect that Hillary Clinton will sign the Arms Trade Treaty, establishing first-ever UN gun controls, those of us who believe in the Second Amendment need to gear up for a tough battle this fall.
But there is a good prospect of victory.
We have to realize that once the ink is dry on Hillary’s signature, there are only two ways to beat the Treaty and its threat of UN imposed gun control – take back the Senate or beat Obama.
The fact that the NRA has succeeded in getting fifty-eight Senators to sign on opposing the Treaty is irrelevant. If Harry Reid won’t bring it up on the floor, it won’t get a vote. And, in the absence of Senate disapproval or a renunciation by the president, the United States is bound by the Treaty under the provisions of the Vienna Convention which we have both signed and ratified.
Nor will the Second Amendment offer us any protection. The Supremacy Clause in our own Constitution provides that treaties are the “law of the land” akin to a constitutional provision. �
The answer is to beat Obama and give the Republicans a majority in the Senate. Either will suffice to kill the Treaty. A Republican majority leader would certainly bring the Treaty up for a vote and it would certainly be defeated, ending its power over the U.S. and a President Romney will doubtless renounce the Treaty on taking office.
Voting for anti-gun control Democratic candidates for Senate won’t work. Their leader would refuse to bring the Treaty up for a vote, regardless of how his members felt.
We know that Obama is frightened to death of the gun issue. While he said, famously, that bitter people “cling to their religion and their guns,” in the 2008 election, he hasn’t touched the issue since. In his avalanche of liberal proposals concerning spending, taxes, health care, labor relations, the environment, and energy, he has proposed no added gun controls.
So we need to realize that this Treaty is a declaration of war against the Second Amendment and we need to step up and battle. We have got to make gun control the issue that tips swing states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri, Iowa, and Colorado into the Republican column on Election Day. Now there is no way to save our right to bear arms other than to win the election.

Back Door Gun Control – Dick Morris: Hillary Trying to pull a Fast one!!!
58 Senators oppose the Gun Control Treaty.
But Obama and Hillary are still going to implement the Treaty.
Obama & Hillary will sign the United Nations Gun Control Treaty on July 27th.Under the Vienna Convention once a treaty is signed it binds the signing nation to the treaty so that implementation can immediately begin. Under our Constitution either the President must reject the Treaty or the Senate must reject the treaty, in order to invalidate it.
Harry Reid will never bring it up for a Vote in the Senate & Obama if Re-elected will Never Renounce it .Therefore , there is no legal way to stop the Treaty’s implementation .
Since under our Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, a Treaty has the Force of a Constitutional Amendment, Obama Can and Will begin its implementation.
“In fact, even if we don’t ratify this treaty [I.e. Harry Reid doesn’t schedule a Senate vote], but Obama signs it, under the Vienna Convention we are obligated not to do anything to counter this treaty while we are considering ratifying it [I.e. While Harry Reid stalls a Senate vote]. It’s only if a subsequent President…
“In fact, even if we don’t ratify this treaty [I.e. Harry Reid doesn’t schedule a Senate vote], but Obama signs it, under the Vienna Convention we are obligated not to do anything to counter this treaty while we are considering ratifying it [I.e. While Harry Reid stalls a Senate vote]. It’s only if a subsequent President renounces the Treaty, which you can’t do after the senate confirms it, but you can do before, that it is no longer binding on the United States.”
Well America, two of our infamous deceivers are at it again. Chief propagandist in Charge, Barak Hussein Obama and Assistant Chief propagandist Hillary Rodham Clinton have hatched a plot to stealthily execute an end run around our Constitution’s Second Amendment which guarantees the “…right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
These masters of deception will sign a United Nations ( You know that corrupt international body that placed Libya’s Gaddafi in charge of the UN Human Rights Commission) Treaty, that uses a ruse about controlling arms to disarm America,
You say it can’t happen. Remember how Obamacare couldn’t happen. How about Obama’s illegal Recess Appointments or his Executive Order that effectively, illegally legislated and implemented Amnesty by usurping Congressional Legislative Powers under Article I. Section 1. of our Constitution.
What they are practicing is the frog anecdote. It goes something like this. If a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. Well folks, you and I along with all Americans are the frogs in the foregoing analogy.
If you don’t believe me, would you believe Dick Morris who became a political adviser to the Clinton White House in 1992 and has been on both sides of the aisle?
Listen to the frightening analysis that Dick Morris present and be on notice that you have been placed in a pot of cold water and Barak Hussein Obama and Hilly Rodham Clinton are turning up the flame.
