Obama Joyce Foundation Director: Obama Plan to Disarm America: Joyce Spent Hundreds of Thousands to Influence Supreme Court Second Amendment Decisions

Had you forgotten, or perhaps never knew that Barack Obama was director of the “non-profit charitable” Joyce Foundation from 1994 to 2002? Along with “education,” one of their focuses is gun control which they charaterize as “gun violence.” Never mind that a gun can’t be “violent” without a person being violent first. Barack Obama worked diligently to take down the Second Amendment. There was a clear path for doing this at Joyce. They targeted future Supreme Court decisions and began funding lies and deceptive law articles about the individual right to keep and bear arms.

There are three important things to remember here:

1) Obama has repeatedly told us he has been FOR individual gun rights, yet we are seeing the Fast and Furious gunrunner scandal develop, which many believe was an attempt to set up U.S. firearm sellers, show them to be irresponsible, and clamp-down tight on gun laws, and most important,

2) Barack Obama as President, appoints Supreme Court Justices

3) As President, Barack Obama has created nothing but lies, misery and more government

Bob Owens at Pajamas Media (please read the entire important article).

Joyce’s directors found a vulnerable point. When judges cannot rely upon past decisions, they sometimes turn to law review articles. Law reviews are impartial, and famed for meticulous cite-checking. They are also produced on a shoestring. Authors of articles receive no compensation; editors are law students who work for a tiny stipend.

In 1999, midway through Obama’s tenure, the Joyce board voted to grant the Chicago-Kent Law Review $84,000, a staggering sum by law review standards. The Review promptly published an issue in which all articles attacked the individual right view of the Second Amendment.

What this means is, Joyce “bought” the law review opinions, sometimes used by Supreme Court justices and their staff when deciding a case. The Chicago-Kent Law Review was just the beginning, and Barack Obama was the director of board, thus the director of the plan.

During that time, every article on gun rights – that is, each and every article written, was “hostile” to the Second Amendment’s individual right to keep and bear arms, which made it’s way through SCOTUS in 2001 and was upheld. That ruling did not stop Obama – $400,000 sanctioned to establish a Second Amendment Research Center to come up with challenges to the 2001 gun right decision. There were more hostile articles, none of which helped their cause.

Think about Obama’s past. He really has never held a job where he was responsible for creating income or product, responsible for making stockholders happy, or making a banker willing to loan money for his cause. He has always had the richest of the rich give him money for a political cause. When he failed, as he did here and as director of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (spent $150 Million on puberty rites and African societal antics), the money dried up and he walked away.

  • Obama and his comrades are a threat to the second amendment and our gun rights. Another assault on the Constitution by progressives? They hate the Constitution so it’s not all that surprising. We need to expose his anti-second amendment past and agenda during the campaign. Hopefully more people will listen than last time.

    • Hi Teresa, If we control all three branches of government in 2013 we have many changes to make, all of them protection and preserving the Constitution. It will be massive. I wonder if we will be up to it.

  • A disarmed people is a docile people. Slaves are not allowed to own weapons.

    • Bob, all we have to do is look at Europe. Who is armed? The criminals. Who dies? Not the criminals.

      I am the author and creator of the Obama Poster ” My work here is done” above and I am glad to see my work traveling around the Internet.



  • Hope and Change Chicago style. Al Capone was more honest than this bunch!

    • findalis, I think you’re right. Obama commits his crimes from the Oval and under the Executive pen.

    Obama is a disgrace to the USA. He wants to destroy america and everything it stands for. He is a divider. I am starting to believe that he will not stop till he destroys everything. He knows what he has done is making things worse and wanting to do more. Just putting people in government jobs for a short time will not work. Giving it away to other countries will not work. I notice they no longer use the jobs made jobs saved. Those were cover words for keeping the unions jobs going. The unions have wasted a ton of workers dues to try to change who are running politics.They helped get obama elected. When the company is no longer able to keep up with union what good does it do to be in the union. Obama is not a leader he is a destroyer. The middle east in turmoil who cause it go back and look at what Obama’s friends said. Obama’s thinking he could go apologize for america See were that has gotten you obama. I don’t know if the USA will survive Obama. Shame on the media for not checking him out. If the Media only checked on Obama half as much as they went after Sarah Palin. Obama is nothing but a con man.

    • Hi Carol, I definitely believe he intended to divide, intended to create chaos. That’s the way he worked as a community agitator. Make the single mothers unhappy with government, get them to tear down the doors at City Hall and demand more and more in welfare benefits. It works. It’s his way. That’s why he is so found of Unions. He admires how they get things done.

      He would not have been elected if the media had done half of their job.

      Thanks for much for visiting and commenting. I hope you will come back.

  • When they come for mine they had better be prepared because the only way they get mine is when they pry it from my cold dead hand.

    • Ticker, that is exactly why the next Supreme Court nominee is so important – perhaps the most important thing we face as we go into 2013.

  • It is time for the Tea Party to start moving again. I wonder now if we have time to make it to the next election.

    • Bunkerville, I wonder how the Tea Party’s can keep going. People seem to resent them asking for money, but they have to travel. It is a full time job for the leaders. The those of us who show up when can – our lives are so busy. But it is something we must do. I think we are energized. If today’s immigration news doesn’t get the blood boiling, I don’t know what will.

    Perhaps we should all take a note from a page in Switzerland’s book.

    Switzerland has very strict gun-control laws: Every male must have an assault rifle in his home. One of the few government sponsored activities are the local “shooting societies” where all Swiss citizens are expected to train to shoot.

    Here is where I got that information. http://godfatherpolitics.com/581/lessons-from-the-swiss-riots/

    Maybe the Swiss are on to something. When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.
