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
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.
