STUNNING: This Obama Scheme Is Shutting Down Legal Gun Stores

WASHINGTON — Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) demanded the Obama administration suspend the Justice Department’s “Operation Choke Point,” in which government agents are pressuring banks to close the accounts of legal and law-abiding businesses engaged in commerce contrary to the political views of Barack Obama.

“(T)he Justice Department has launched Operation Choke Point, a credit card fraud probe focusing on banks and payment processors. The threat of enforcement has prompted some banks to cut ties with online gun retailers, even if those companies have valid licenses and good credit histories,” The Washington Times reported Monday morning.

“Under Obama’s ‘Operation Choke Point,’ banks are complaining that government agents are threatening them because they service legal businesses engaged in legal commerce. Often, the customer is a gun retailer or other businesses that poses no risk, but differs with Obama’s political agenda,” said Stockman.

Thousands of gun retailers have had their bank accounts forcibly closed, despite engaging in no illegal activity whatsoever.

“This is just the latest example of the Obama administration exploiting executive power to target political opponents. It would appear the only purpose of Operation Choke Point is to choke the life out of businesspeople with political views that may differ from the President,” said Stockman.

“Unable to pass gun control in Congress, Obama is seeking to stamp out gun ownership through the kind of threats and harassment you’d expect from Third World dictators or Mafia bosses,” said Stockman.

“Targeting the bank account of gun retailers engaged in peaceful and legal commerce is a blatant violation of civil liberties. Under Obama, the United States are becoming a banana republic. The Obama administration must suspend Operation Choke Point and instead focus its resources on criminal enterprises,” said Stockman.

    When are we as a nation going to grow a set and put this half breed bastard out of office by impeachment or what ever means. I am sick and tired of this communist muslim POS by passing the constitution and the laws of this country and the sorry damned RINO's sitting on their ass's and not impeaching this low life Kenian do what ever he feels like doing. All of vets should arm up and take our country back, we have already been classified as terrorist why not show the SOB'S just how terroristic we can be all of us have been trained by the best that Uncle Sugar could offer lets put it to good use

    • Skipfoss, please leave race out of it. It just gives them more bait. Yes, we need to impeach him and try him for treason. I will say that. Skin color doesn't matter, tho'.

    The SOB wants to disarm this country.

    • scholar says:

      Here's how it got past congress. It didn't. Congress is part of it. DEMONcRATS, you know….. Traitors… all of them…..

    • vincent marquette says:

      That's right Linda , we need to get rid of this communist and all who support him.

  4. Amen..

  5. What pisses me off is the lameless media does nothing to tell the truth of this POS Muslim/traitor. If this was a republican he/she would already be linched and in jail. This POS is awaking a Giant and that is the real Americans. GOD bless us all when it happens…..

  6. He only gets away with it because the American people allow him to. When enough people reach their breaking point and band together ,this administration will fear the people like it should rather than the people fearing the government,[ which it never should]

    But…But…But…You dont' understand…They think he is the Messiah!

    I'm with you Linda the faster the fater we getn this monkey and his family out the better.

      The fastest way to get him out is on the golf course at a cost of about one dollar.

      • Did you guys here! Only 30 people showed up operation American spring! -_- Stop living in dream land, and act like a mature adult… like normal people do. Impeachment doesn’t work the way you think. You can’t impeach a person because you don’t like them, you have to have EVIDENCE against a crime that they DIRECTLY committed. And don’t say you have evidence, all you guys have are past tragic events that you blame on one person. Take your pathetic assumptions to the public, and see who will listen. Mail your congressman, and see if they reply to your response. Or move to Russia or China, since you think they are sooo better than us. Every time I visit this sight, All I hear is hatred, complaints, pessimistic replys, complaints, complaints and more complaints! Also threats, which makes you public enemy number one. But I have nothing to worry about. You’re nothing but schizophrenic radicals, who act like dogs, obeying and listening to the command of your masters. You listen to fake, entertainment, illegitimate news station that doesn’t even give correct facts. Just opinions……
        And what’s most pathetic about the grand OLD party, your relics of an outdated past. This isn’t 1943. It’s 2014, get with the future or get left behind, because your ideas our invalid.

        • Rick, your obviously a mole / troll, and as such no one here will listen to you. Dont waste ours and your time with your left wing ideology.

        • Well, Diddo to that Susan, except, no one in this century will listen to your little tea party.

        • Linda,I Love America unlike some people! Basically, I’m Staying! Come force me out you Nazi azzlicker!

    Lets face it Obutthole thinks he is the smartest monkey in the pack and if he can't get his way he will go around the congress.He uses every government agency he can to get his way. The worst part nis there isn't a democrap who will go against him and the media being on his side doesn't help.

  10. RIA45acp says:

    Man Skipfoss, you and I think alike. I totally agree. An armed country is feared by the government. So what does this POS Muslim Hitler wants to do is go against the Constitution and our rights to keep and bare arms and disarm us so we can’t fight against the tearonny that is already sweeping once was a great and powerful nation.

    As for Linda From NY, I too agree with you and curse the Loosers that voted for this POS half breed (who I don’t think he even really knows what he is or even knows where he is from) but, if you are sucking off the hind tit and a freeloader getting all the freebies that the good honest hard working law abiding tax paying citizens OF THIS COUNTRY, hell why wouldn’t you vote for this crooked, UnAmerican, Godless POS, who really does hate this country (hell! just look at his track record) and what we really stand for (or should I say what we used to stand for).

    And all this talk of impeaching this Muslim Mobster for all the unlawful and UnConstitutional things he has done, you think we the people of this country would have already done it yesterday. Hell! What Nixon had gotten impeached for was nothing off the scale as to what this POS has done, and things that have been done that he has hidden and kept from the people of this country and what he has up his sleeve in the future.

    God help us and have mercy on us.

  11. scholar says:

    It's time to choke Obama. He must be removed by force of the people because our politicians won't budge, probably because they're as much responsible for the crimes committed as the muslim jigga is.

  12. FRANKLIN says:

    Hussein Obama…The WORST enemy of the United States of America ever…How could american people enable such a scumbag like that piece of shit to occupy the White House of George Washington?…

  13. EFortin says:

    How about we go back to the old days before banks and government regulations? Take you money out of the banks, Deal on a cash basis. Pay all your bills by cash. Stop receiving and paying takes on any transaction of any kind. Every business in the USA follow suit. No paper trails. No Federal income taxes, no Federal sales taxes. No Federal government control. Implement only State funding. That is what was originally set up. State has first say in everything. Federal government is an infringement on States rights. LET'S TAKE OUR STATES RIGHTS BACK. ALL STATES MUST BE IN THIS TOGETHER. We pay taxes to EMPLOY Federal workers. THEY WORK FOR US. If they won't then OUT WITH THEM!

  14. You all have no life…. I feel sorry for you guys, I really do.

  15. It is past time to impeach this un American scum.

    2 Timothy 3:

    This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their ownselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
