Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun propaganda
By*Dr. John R. Lott Jr.Published October 06, 2014FoxNews.com
When former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control groups release a report, they consistently garnermassive, uncritical news coverage.* Alas. With the huge number of factual mistakes in these reports, you would think that reporters would have grown wary of pushing their propaganda.
For example, Bloomberg’s Everytown, Mothers Demand Action, and Mayors Against Illegal guns have been caught padding the number of school shootings. *While Everytown claimed 74 school shootings occurred between the Newtown, Connecticut shooting in December 2012 and June 2014, Politifact, which rated Everytown’s claim as“mostly false,”*put the number of “incidents such as Sandy Hook or Columbine in which the shooter intended to commit mass murder” at 10.
Every single report released by Bloomberg’s groups has contained*major errors.* A*new report by the Crime Prevention Research Center*has corrected Everytown’s July study on “mass shootings”: again, it is no different – lots of errors, but worldwide publicity touting the erroneous claims.
According to this Everytown study, there were 110 mass shootings in the almost six years from January 2009 to July 2014.* But that number is heavily padded with residential killings by gangs, within family killings, or murders resulting from some other crime such as a robbery.* These murders are also important, but they are different.* What motivates a gang fight over drugs is not what motivates a Sandy Hook type mass shooter.* These mass killers plan on committing suicide.* While drug dealers are motivated by money, the public pass shooters want to kill as many people as possible so that they can get publicity.*
Mass public shootings that are not part of gang fight or some other crime are much fewer, 25, not 110. **Unfortunately, Everytown hasn’t learned from previous criticisms of their padded numbers with unrelated attacks.*
*Some errors are trivial, such as getting the ages of killers wrong, but such errors reveal the sloppiness of their reports.* They entirely missed the ages of 18 killers.* They also misclassified a couple cases of stabbings as shooting deaths.
Others are more significant.* According to their July report, only 10 percent of mass shooters have a history of mental illness prior to their attacks.* Again, they simply failed to research the cases thoroughly.* Out of the 25 mass public shooting cases, they missed that five shooters had histories of clear mental illness.* Overall, 52 percent of mass public shooters had histories of mental illness.
Perhaps most importantly, the Everytown report falsely states that 86% of mass shootings occur in places where guns are allowed.* They arrive at their high figure primarily by counting attacks in private homes, which they assume allow guns. *But the debate has been about attacks
Further, as for public places, they do not correctly identify whether citizens are allowed to defend themselves.* Thus, they ignore rules that prevent general citizens from carrying guns (e.g., not acknowledging that Los Angeles County issued only 240 concealed handgun permits to wealthy individuals out of an adult population of 7.6 million adults).* They equate allowing police to carry guns as the same thing as letting civilians defend themselves.* And they mistakenly rely on news reports to determine whether guns were banned in an area.**
Unfortunately, the media virtually never mentions that attacks occur in gun-free zones.
In fact, since 2009 (indeed since at least 1950) only two of the mass public shootings have occurred in places where civilians were allowed to defend themselves with guns.
Everytown asserts that attacks involving “assault weapons” were more deadly (7.7 with assault weapons versus 4.7 without).* Correcting their simple math errors, no longer counting stabbing deaths as shootings, and consistently defining “assault” rifles, cuts the difference to 6.4 versus 4.9.* Even then the difference is driven by just one attack.* For all the other mass shootings but Newtown, the lethality of attacks with “assault weapons” is actually slightly less than attacks without them.
With all the*hundreds of millions of dollarsthat Michael Bloomberg is poring into pushing gun control, you would think that he could hire some fact-checkers.* But possibly he doesn’t care.* Maybe all he really wants is anti-gun propaganda.
John DeCamp: Columbine Shooters Used by Law Enforcement for “Sexual Purposes” Months Before Attack
After years of silence, John DeCamp has spoken out about what happened in the case against Solvay Pharmaceuticals where he represented Columbine survivor Mark Taylor. *John DeCamp is the Author of the Franklin Coverup, a former State Congressman, a Vietnam Veteran and the first attorney to sue the Catholic Church for sexually abusing children. Now that even the Pope admits to wide-spread pedophilia in the Church, let’s move on to these allegations of sexual predator*cops.
Ghost Gunner 3D Printer: Legally Make Your Own Rifle At Home
“No Serial Number, No Background Check, And No Waiting Period”Mac Slavo Activist Post
As the government feverishly*attempts*to restrict everything from the*importation of*ammunition*to ownership of*semi-automatic weapons, one individual has been tirelessly working to restore the*spirit of the Second Amendment to all corners of America.
Cody Wilson, who in 2013 developed the first ever 3-D printed plastic gun known asThe Liberator, is at it again. But this time he’s taking open source firearm manufacturing to a whole other level.
Earlier models of his home printed firearms were dependent on plastic parts. They worked, albeit only a few times before they shattered because of the extreme pressures involved with firing a bullet out of a gun. Even the heaviest*duty plastics eventually weakened to the point of failure.
*But the world of 3-D printing and private gun*ownership is about to change dramatically.
This holiday season Wilson’s company Defense Distributed will be releasing the first ever 3-D printer designed specifically for the manufacture of firearms.
The Ghost Gunner is named after the “ghost gun,” a firearms industry name for a weapon that can’t be traced. Once instructions are sent to*the one-foot cube, the machine is*capable of milling the one component*of a gun that makes it a gun: the lower receiver.
It’s also the part of the gun that you cannot legally buy in most states without*the government knowing about it because it must have a serial number.
And what makes Ghost Gunner different from previous attempts at printing firearms is that this one “prints” with metal, not plastic.It’s about to get a whole lot easier to make a semi-automatic rifle at home with no serial number, no background check, and no waiting period.
Cody Wilson, the libertarian behind*the world’s first 3D-printed gun, is now selling an all-in-one desktop CNC mill, called the Ghost Gunner. It can produce an aluminum lower receiver of an AR-15 rifle — the civilian version of the military’s M-16 assault rifle — in a couple of hours.
The lower receiver, which connects the stock, barrel, magazine, and other parts of the gun together, is the component that is legally considered to be a firearm under US law — and its sale is highly regulated.
The Ghost Gunner is programmed to take a partially-complete lower receiver, known as an “80 percent lower,” and automatically mill it into a functioning part. From there, all you have to do is buy the other widely-available components online and assemble the rifle. As Wilson explains on*the product’s website, “on day one, Ghost Gunner can help you legally manufacture unserialized firearms in the comfort of your own home.
”The Ghost Gunner ‘prints’ AR-15 receivers and will soon be capable of AR-10 and .308 printing:The Ghost Gunner will begin shipping during the 2014 holiday season. If you haven’t already pre-ordered your printer, you’ll have to wait until the next time around because their first limited run of 500 units at a*price tag of $1200have already sold out.
Gun owners are drawn to Hunterdon cabinet maker's 'concealment furniture'

UNION TWP. — The four-peg hardwood coat rack doesn’t call attention to itself. But if you know which peg to remove and how to use that peg as a magnetic key, a hidden drawer drops down, giving you quick access to whatever you’ve hidden there, be it a pair of mittens or a loaded 9mm semi-automatic pistol.
SWAT Training Drill During Marysville School Shooting?
Marysville shooting occurs less than 2 weeks before Washington voters decide on new gun control measures
Doesn't there always seem to be funny business with these alleged school shootings? The latest is the Marysville, Washington active shooter event taking place today.
This post isn't to discuss the details of the ongoing event, but rather to point out that it appears the Marysville Police were scheduled to run a SWAT training exercise yesterday or perhaps today too. We can't know for sure because they scraped all references to it from the Internet.
Major props to Lori Price of LegitGov for catching this:
CNN host Brooke Baldwin, covering breaking news of the school shooting in Marysville, Washington, announces that she has a live update regarding the school shooting. Baldwin said she's been just handed a paper with new information, which she will read on the air. She asks for viewers to, quoting, "bear with her," as she reads it "cold." She reads: "Marysville Police will be holding SWAT training today --" Baldwin then interrupts herself, and states, "Oh. This is from yesterday." Later, the host announces, "initially, students thought this was a fire drill."
When Googling the SWAT drill in Marysville, the official school district website is the first result:
However, when you click on this link, the announcement has been disappeared and replaced by the following:
October 24, 2014: The Marysville Pilchuck High School is currently in lock down due to an emergency situation. Police and emergency services have responded. The Marysville School District lock down procedures will remain in effect at Pilchuck until further notice from law enforcement. We will continue to forward communication in cooperation with law enforcement.
Students who attend MPHS campus are being relocated to the Shoultes Community Church at the corner of 116th and 51st Street. Buses will take students home from there. Those parents in the area wanting to pick up their child will need to go to the church location and sign out their child out with school administrator or law enforcement.
All after-school activities across the district are canceled today.
We may be dealing with yet another vicious false flag by the authorities to justify gun control and an increased police state. Please add any evidence you can find to the comment section below.
KING Staff and Associated Press 10:58 p.m. PST November 4, 2014
Washington voters on Tuesday were passing a measure that would seek universal background checks on all gun sales and transfers. I-594 would also require background checks on private transactions and many loans and gifts.
Voters were against I-591, which would prevent the state from expanding checks beyond the national standard.
At 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, the I-591 count was 55 percent no and 45 percent yes. The I-594 count was 60 percent yes and 40 percent no.
Leading the fight for more background checks was Cheryl Stumbo, victim and survivor of the fatal shooting at the Jewish Federation of Seattle eight years ago.
"We've had a logjam for decades, because the NRA and the gun lobby have had a stranglehold on our legislators at the state and federal levels," she said Tuesday night. "This is the first chink in the armor. This is the first time we're seeing a vote by the people can overcome that logjam."
"Now, we're going to be able to find out those cases that don't go through the background check. They're going to stand out like a sore thumb."
Like federal law, Washington law currently requires checks for sales or transfers by licensed dealers but not for purchases from private sellers, like those who sell at gun shows or to friends.
No other state has a gun-related measure on the ballot this year, and millions of dollars have been pouring into the state, mostly in support of expanding background checks. I-591 also would prohibit the confiscation of firearms without due process.
Universal Background Check Referendum Heading for NV, AZ, ME
By Robert Farago on November 5, 2014
“In Tuesday’s vote count, nearly 60 percent of voters were supporting I-594, which would extend background checks in Washington state to private sales and transfers,” seattletimes.com reports. “The measure was winning in eight of the 10 largest counties in the state. A competing measure, Initiative 591, which would bar the state from enacting any background checks more extensive than federal law, was being rejected by 55 percent of voters in the initial count.” As Jeremy stated before, bad news indeed. Predictably enough, the anti-gun initiative is coming soon to a state near you . . .
Everytown for Gun Safety is gathering signatures for a similar initiative in Nevada, and future campaigns are being planned for Arizona and Maine, according to [Everytown for Gn Safety President John] Feinblatt.
Alan Gottlieb, chair of the Yes on 591 campaign said he was considering legal action against I-594. He said he would lobby the state Legislature to either toss the initiative or amend it, on the grounds that it poses too many complications for law enforcement and gun owners.
Not to mention the fact that background checks are a form of registration that leads to confiscation – because then Alan would have to decry ALL background checks for firearms sales, including the federal NICS check. And that’s about as politically palatable as repealing no-smoking bans in maternity wards.
Hidden consequences of Washington State's gun background check Initiative 594
By Dr. John R. Lott Jr.
·Published November 01, 2014
Let’s say a stalker is threatening a female friend of yours. She asks you if she can borrow your handgun. She is trained and has no criminal record. Should you loan her your gun?
If you live in Washington State, loaning her your gun may soon make you a criminal and will likely land you in prison.
Suppose you are a Boy Scout leader. Once a year, the scouts take a trip to a local farm where the boys earn their firearm merit badges. If you continue to stick with this annual ritual you may soon find yourself in prison.
Those two examples illustrate just a couple of the hidden consequences for ordinary citizens if Washington State voters pass Initiative 594 on Tuesday -- the biggest gun control initiative on any state ballot this year.
Gun control advocates are putting a huge effort into winning passage of the initiative. With $9.5 million from billionaires such as Michael Bloomberg, the initiative’s supporters are spending half as much asthe NRA is spending on all political campaigns and initiatives across the entire United States.
Yet, despite a huge money advantage, gun control advocates are still using totally inaccurate claims to make their case to voters.
Mark Kelly, who heads one of the organizations spearheading the initiative, made a very common claim for the initiative recently on CNN. He told host Jake Tapper: “right now 60 percent of all gun sales go–occur–with a background check. Why do we allow the 40 percent, the other 40 percent, to happen?” But even the normally anti-gun Washington Posthas noted this claim is false and given it three out of four Pinocchios on its fact checker blog.
The 40 percent figure Kelly pointed to rounds up a claim that 36 percent of gun transfers were done without a background check. And that number was obtained from a small, 251-person survey conducted two decades ago, from November 1991 to December 1994. Most of the survey covered sales before the Brady Act instituted mandatory federal background checks. Even if it had been a reliable survey, it tells us nothing about background checks after the law.
More importantly, the 36 percent figure had little to do with “sales.” The vast majority involved transfers, not sales: inheritances or gifts from family members. If you look at guns that were bought or traded, just 12 percent would have been transferred without a background check. And, again, most of this survey was before the federal background checks went into effect.
By the way, if gun control advocates really trusts this survey, they should not ignore this other fact from its findings: it found that all gun-show sales went through federally licensed dealers.
Unfortunately, the current system of gun background checks is severely flawed, and often causes dangerous delays for people who suddenly need a gun for self-defense, such as a woman being stalked by an ex-partner. Beyond the crashes in the federal government’s computers, 8 percent of background checks are not accomplished within two hours, with most of these delays taking three days or longer.
Like so many other supporters of Initiative 594, Kelly gets another basic fact wrong. He asserts: “roughly 1.7 million criminals and mentally ill people have been stopped from buying a gun by a background check since 1999.” But these were only “initial denials,” not people prevented from actually buying guns.
Remember the five timesthat the late Sen. Ted Kennedy missed flights because his name was on the “no fly” list? Kelly’s method of counting is equivalent of saying that the “no fly” list stopped five flights by terrorists.
The federal government dropped more than 94 percent of those “initial denials” after just preliminary reviews, with more false positives discovered after that. In 2010, the last year a complete report for the federal government has been released, out of 76,142 initial denials, only 49 were referred for prosecution and just 13 of those ended in conviction.
For most, such delays are just an inconvenience. But for a few, delays can be life threatening as it prevents people from defending themselves. Indeed, research by one of us suggests these delays slightly increase violent crime, particularly rapes.
Proponents of I-594, such as Geoff Potter, communications director of the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility, assures voters: “We know that closing the background check loophole will save lives.” But there is not a single study by economists or criminologists that support that claim.
Worse, even gun control advocates admit that the initiative will at up to $60 to the cost of getting a gun.
My own research indicates that it is poor minorities who live in crime urban areas who benefit the most from owning a gun, but those are precisely the people who will be discouraged by this substantial fee from getting a gun for protection.
Even if the background system worked perfectly, it wouldn’t have stopped the high school shooting that killed two people last month at a Washington State high school.
The shooter stole the gun he used.
Nor would the law have stopped any of the recent mass public shootings in such places as Newtown, Ft. Hood, the U.S. Navy Yard, or Aurora, Colorado. Also note that even complete gun bans in Washington, D.C., and Chicago haven’t stopped criminals from getting guns.
Expanded background checks might well be reasonable, but only after the current system is fixed.
The poorly written and confusing initiative is going to turn a lot of well-intentioned Washingtonians into criminals. The fees and regulations attached to the initiative will primarily make it harder for law-abiding citizens to get guns for self-protection.

Just a Coincidence???-THERE were shootings- however, I believe the people in the pictures are two different men. Look at the photos where the facial tattoos disappear from the captured man in custody photo. Further, the FBI and SPLC seemed to be involved as they were making statements through-out this entire ordeal from the very beginning.
ALSO, during the search for the suspect in Mesa, ASU/TEMPE POLICE stated they captured the guy, on the University campus, then afterward, no mention of those words from the Tempe police were ever aired again, even as the Mesa police trotted out the guy in the white HAZMAT SUIT.
Note-The guy in the white hazmat suit stated to a reporter,that he didn't know what was going on. Or why he was being arrested.
Little is known about the victims in Wednesday's shooting spree in Mesa, but statements from eyewitnesses, victims and their friends and relatives depict a trail of surprise and terror that stretched across Mesa.
At the Tri-City Inn, 1504 W. Main St.
David Williams, 29, was shot and killed at the Tri-City Inn where he worked and lived with his girlfriend, Veronica Ehrig, and his mother.
Ehrig was in hysterics as she recalled Williams to a Republic reporter. She said she had known Williams since he was 16. She described him as "funny, respectful, smart, a great skateboarder."
Ehrig said that on Wednesday morning she was outside the motel room at the Tri-City Inn, where she worked as a housekeeper. Williams, a maintenance worker at the motel, was inside a room with his mother.
Ehrig said the shooter approached and said something to Williams. Ehrig said Williams said something back, and then the shooter pulled out a gun and shot Williams and his mother.
Ehrig said she ran into the room, "but there was no helping him. There was blood everywhere."
She wasn't sure where he was shot. Ehrig said she thinks Williams may have known the shooter, but she said she had never seen him before.
Ehrig said she's going to grieve for Williams and then go back to work.
"Justice will be served, hopefully," she said. "Don't take things for granted. Just enjoy what you've got. Live life to the fullest."
hough police did not officially confirm the identities of any of the victims, friends identified Williams' mother as Lydia Nielsen, whom a spokeswoman for Scottsdale Osborn Medical Center said the hospital treated and released.
It was unclear who the third victim was Wednesday evening.
At the East Valley Institute of Technology's Bistro 13, 1353 W. Main St.
Culinary student Isaac Martinez was working his morning shift at Bistro 13 when the gunman — who had opened fire at the Tri-City Inn across the street earlier — ran into the EVIT-run restaurant.
"It was a miracle hit," Martinez wrote. As of Wednesday afternoon, he was "home and well" and expected to fully recover.
According to police, the gunman fled Bistro 13 in a stolen gray Honda Accord. By Martinez's account, the car belonged to his EVIT culinary instructor, Joe Kalfus.
Kalfus had at least two small children in tow when he answered the door of his Gilbert home about 7 p.m. Wednesday. A dark gray vehicle was in his driveway but its make and model were unclear.
While he did not appear to have any serious injuries, Kalfus was clearly shaken, saying he had only been able to return home about two hours earlier. He said he wasn't yet ready to speak about what had happened Wednesday morning as it was "still very fresh."
"I'm still very rattled," he said. "I'm not quite ready to relive the whole ordeal."
Mesa police have not released the identity of a fifth shooting victim, who they said was wounded during a home invasion at the Sorrento Apartments. Late Wednesday evening, several residents at the complex recounted the scene that morning as Mesa police continued to gather evidence from an upstairs unit on the east end.
At the Sorrento Apartments, South Dobson Road
Charlene Fuentes and her boyfriend, Jamal Harris, live on a second-floor unit in the complex, just west of where the home invasion took place.
"It was about 8:45 a.m. I came out to smoke a cigarette," Harris said. "I heard about five, six shots first. Maybe two seconds went by. Then, I heard five, eight shots. Pop, pop, pop."
Resident Kevin Jones said he was standing outside with a neighbor in the morning when they saw the wounded man walk out.
The man "comes running out, holding his shoulder," Jones said. "His uncle said, 'He's been shot.' "
Jones said he saw the man taken away in an ambulance.
At the Villetta Apartments, West Emelita Avenue
Luis Lopez, a maintenance worker at the Villetta Apartments, said he was approached by a man who pointed a gun and demanded his keys.
Lopez, who speaks Spanish but understands some English, said he handed over his stack of maintenance keys to the gunman, who then indicated he wanted car keys instead. The man demanded that Lopez lead him toward his truck. As the two walked through the complex, Lopez said, they passed by other workers at the maintenance shop.
In recounting his story, Lopez pressed his hand to his waist to demonstrate how the man had held his hand over the gun, ready to shoot Lopez.
According to Lopez, the gunman made a remark to the other workers.
"(The gunman and I) walked next to each other to the parking lot," Lopez said. "When we got to the pool, he went a few steps in front of me. We passed the maintenance shop. He said, 'Hi,' " to one of the other maintenance workers — then shot him, making him the sixth and final victim of the day.
"Six times," Lopez said. "He only hit him twice."
When they reached the parking area, Lopez said, the gunman turned and fired at Lopez's feet. When the gunman turned back to the truck, Lopez said he ran back toward the complex.
"I didn't get hit. I turned to get away," Lopez said. "He couldn't get in the truck. He climbed the fence."
Jacen Clements, a resident at Villetta, said he was on his patio when he saw a man walking a few steps in front of one of the maintenance workers near the complex's swimming pool.
They turn a corner, "and then I hear the shots. It was five really quick in succession, like pop pop pop pop pop. And then there was a pause, and then I hear four really quick shots."
When Lopez came into view, Clements yelled to him in Spanish, "Nueva Uno Uno?" Lopez responded: "Yes, 911."
Wednesday evening, standing in the apartment where he had been abducted at gunpoint, Lopez said police told him his co-worker was out of surgery.

A felon with ties to white supremacist groups has been arrested in the mass shooting in Mesa, Arizona that left at least one man dead and five other people wounded in a crime spree that stretched across the city.
Ryan Giroux was identified by Mesa police as the gunman, according to NBC 12 News, a Phoenix news station.
He was arrested at about 1 p.m., nearly five hours after the first shooting.
Photo of captured suspect-Police admit to beating the suspect up.
HOW CONVENIENT THAT THEY PARADE OUT A PERSON TOTALLY CONCEALED FROM PUBLIC VIEW-WITH HANDCUFFS IN FRONT??? LAST TIME I CHECKED HANDCUFFING SOMEONE LIKE THAT ONLY HAPPENS IN MOVIES.
Suspect in Mesa shooting spree has long rap sheet
Ryan Giroux, the suspect in a Mesa mass shooting that left one person dead, is a former Arizona Department of Corrections inmate with a history of police assaults and illegal drug use, according to police and prison records.
Giroux, 41, has a criminal record dating to the early 1990s and served a two-month county jail sentence last year for violating terms of a previous probation. His record includes convictions for drug possession, theft and aggravated assault, according to Arizona Department of Corrections records.
WHAT THE RYAN GIROUX SHOOTING IN AZ SHOULD TEACH US ABOUT POLICE
Published On March 19, 2015 | By Ademo Freeman | Articles
I’m sure you’ve heard about the shootings in Arizona today (March 18th), but for those who haven’t, let me recap. Allegedly, 41 year old Ryan Giroux went on a shooting spree, leaving 1 dead and 5 others injured. There are no known motives for his action at this time, but this post isn’t about Ryan’s motives. This post is about how effectively the police apprehended him, without terrorizing the neighborhood (unlike the Boston and LA Police).
The first report of a shooting came in around 8:30 am and by 1 pm – only 4.5 hours later – Ryan was in custody. Let me remind you that he shot 6 people – killing one, there were multiple crime scenes and he was holed up in a vacant apartment complex. It wasn’t just a simple shooting in one location, there were moving parts here, it was complex.
Within a hour or so of the shooting – at least publicly – the police had Ryan’s name, address, prison record and (presumably) more. They cordoned off a grid that they were highly confident the suspect was in, gathered their personnel and moved in. According to reports from several news outlets, Ryan was tased and transported to the hospital, after being taken into custody. Yet, he’s alive and the police didn’t abuse him or the whole town of Mesa in order to accomplish all that.
Parents of theater shooting victim lose lawsuit against ammo sellers
By John Ingold
The Denver Post
POSTED: 03/27/2015 07:45:16 PM MDT121 COMMENTS| UPDATED: 5 DAYS AGO
The parents of a woman killed during the Aurora movie theater shooting lost their bid Friday to hold ammunition sellers liable for the attack.
Sandy and Lonnie Phillips, whose daughter, Jessica Ghawi, was one of 12 people killed in the July 2012 attack, had sued four online retailers that provided bullets, gun magazines and body armor alleged to have been used in the shooting. They accused the retailers of selling the items without concern about the mental fitness of the buyer or the items' intended use.
The retailers "established and operated businesses which attracted — and catered to — dangerous persons such as (James) Holmes," the couple's complaint argued, "and yet they failed ... to reasonably screen to prevent such dangerous people from obtaining arms."
In an order issued Friday, Senior U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch ruled state and federal laws protect ammunition sellers from such lawsuits. He dismissed the case.
The Phillipses' lawsuit, Matsch wrote, tries "to have it both ways." In spots, the lawsuit argues the retailers should have known that Holmes intended to use the large quantity of ammunition or other items he was buying for an attack. And in other parts, Matsch wrote, the lawsuit argues the retailers knew nothing about Holmes when they sold him the items.
"Looked at in the aggregate and retrospectively," Matsch wrote, "it could be inferred that Holmes' purchases were consistent with planning criminal activity but such an inference is unreasonable under the facts pleaded."
The Phillipses had hoped to force the retailers to change their business practices so they had more information about their customers before making sales. Matsch said that decision is a political one and outside of his authority.
At least 12 other lawsuits remain pending in Denver federal court in connection with the Aurora theater shooting. Most are against the theater's owner, arguing that it should have done more to protect patrons.
By JONATHAN J. COOPER - Associated Press - Saturday, March 28, 2015
SALEM, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon Senate committee will hear public testimony this week on a proposal by gun-control advocates to require a background check any time someone sells or gives a firearm to another person who isn’t a relative. Here are five things to know about Oregon’s universal background-check proposal.
What it does
The bill requires gun buyers and sellers who aren’t related to visit a licensed gun dealer that can, for a fee, run a background check through the Oregon State Police. Oregon law prohibits giving a gun to minors, felons, people with recent convictions for violent behavior or those who have been found by a court to have a mental illness.
If someone tries to buy a gun but fails a background check, the State Police would be required to notify the local sheriff and police chief.
Background checks would not be required when someone transfers to a gun to these relatives: spouse or domestic partner, parent or stepparent, child or stepchild, sibling, grandparent, grandchild, aunt or uncle, first cousin, niece or nephew.
The seller of a gun would face a misdemeanor for a first offense, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $6,250 fine. A second offense would be a felony, with a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
The bill would take effect 90 days after it’s passed.
Secret Olympia Budget Proposal To Register Your Guns With DOL – I-594
Our Anti-gun foes are sneaky. From enough public outcry Olympia has had to delay their budget proposals until Monday. The Democratic Legislature was only going to allow the public a total of 90 minutes to read through hundreds of pages of the budget document. Enough people complained and they had to delay the hearings until Monday. There happens to be a secret budget proposal that corresponds with the passing of I-594 and the Dept of Licensing. Here is the letter written to us by our local Protect Our Gun Rights group.
“We’re hearing some troubling rumors in the Capitol that the Democrats’ secretive budget will include an increase of over $400,000 on top of the current vast Department of Licensing firearms division budget. They are proposing hiring 7 more full time employees to input firearms sale and “transfer” information as they are over a year behind.
Due to a combination of preexisting law and the passage of I-594, all private gun owner information on any sale or transfer is kept by DOL forever, and creates a de facto centralized government registry or “database” of law abiding gun owners and every single detail about you.
The DOL saves all of your personal information on firearms purchases even though it is already held by Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL’s). Information held by FFL’s is available to law enforcement agencies with a proper warrant or court order. The DOL database on the other hand is available to ANYONE they give access to.
Supporters of this type of needless government overreach are quick to point out that the database was accessed “thousands” or “millions” of times, but don’t have much to point to when asked about actual crime they’ve solved with it. Canada recently wisely got rid of its gun database as it costs ran into the millions and was never used to solve a single major crime.
Needless to say, Washington State’s DOL database of firearms owners is duplicitous and unnecessary. Added in with the endless possibilities for fraud, theft, abuse, and future gun confiscation, approving more or any funding for this increased violation of privacy continues to be a wasteful and shameful endeavor to violate the rights of every gun owner in this state.”

Right to Bear Arms? Gun grabbing sweeping the nation
Published April 09, 2015
Cherished family heirlooms were among the 21 firearms Michael Roberts surrendered to the Torrance Police Department in 2010, after his doctor filed a restraining order against him.
The court order was the result of a dispute Roberts had with a member of the doctor’s staff and, after Roberts pleaded no contest, the matter was resolved. Yet, even though he filed the proper Law Enforcement Gun Release paperwork on four separate occasions, obtained clearance from the California Department of Justice and had two court orders commanding the return of his guns, police refused to hand them over.
With the backing of the National Rifle Association and California Rifle and Pistol Association, Roberts filed a federal lawsuit in May 2014, over the $15,500 worth of firearms. In the end he got the money, but not the guns. The police had had them destroyed.
Second Amendment lawyers say his case is not rare.
“NRA and CRPA constantly get calls from law abiding people having problems getting their guns back,” said Chuck Michel of Long Beach based Michel & Associates, who represented Roberts in the case. “The state Department of Justice wrongly tells police not to give guns back unless the person can document ownership of the gun and it is registered in the state DOJ’s database. But the law doesn’t require this.”
Gun owners can’t comply anyway, Michel said, because police themselves routinely fail to enter the firearms into the DOJ’s database, and most people don’t have receipts for the guns they own.
While Americans have the constitutional rights to keep and bear arms – and protect their property from government’s unlawful seizure – it is not just in California where guns are seized and destroyed illegally, attorneys charge.
"This kind of below-the-radar bureaucratic gun confiscation is a growing Second Amendment and property rights violation problem, particularly in strict gun control states like California, New Jersey and Massachusetts,” said Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation. “People can't afford to spend tens of thousands of dollars on legal fees to get back a $500 firearm."
The Second Amendment Foundation’s most recent case involves Rick Bailey, a 56-year-old Navy veteran from Glendale, Ariz., whose entire collection of 28 firearms valued at $25,000 was seized by authorities because of an ongoing dispute with a neighbor.
After Bailey complained over several months to the city of Glendale that his neighbor frequently parked his landscaping company’s dump trucks in front of Bailey’s home -- and toxic chemical odors were coming from his neighbor’s property -- the neighbor obtained a harassment order against Bailey. Police showed up and seized Bailey’s gun collection.
*“Mr. Bailey is devastated by this situation. We seem to live in an environment when someone’s life can be turned upside down on an allegation that should have been thoroughly investigated before any action was ordered by a court,” Gottlieb said. “We’re helping Bailey in his appeal of the judge’s order so he can not only reclaim his valuable firearms, but also some of his dignity as well.”
Probably the most notorious gun confiscation case happened after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005 when the city’s then-mayor, Ray Nagin, ordered all legally owned firearms seized. The Second Amendment Foundation successfully sued on behalf of thousands of law abiding gun owners to stop, or reverse, the confiscations. But hundreds more gun owners without legal representation or ownership paperwork had to abandon their guns. Those firearms still have not been destroyed, Gottlieb said.
What the Times Doesn’t Get about the Second Amendment
by Ted Cruz April 19, 2015 4:25 PM
On Friday, the New York Times stated, in a blaring headline, that my support for Second Amendment rights is “strange.” In particular, the writer took issue with my statement that “”the Second Amendment to the Constitution isn’t for just protecting hunting rights, and it’s not only to safeguard your right to target practice. It is a constitutional right to protect your children, your family, your home, our lives, and to serve as the ultimate check against governmental tyranny — for the protection of liberty.”
In addition to “strange,” the NYT described this view as “ridiculous,” “silly,” and “absurd” (methinks the Old Gray Lady doth protest too much). The writer, the lead editor for the Times’ editorial page, continued, “I just don’t get the argument on constitutional or historical grounds.” Perhaps this will help. Let’s survey some other “silly” people who have embraced this heretical understanding of our liberties.
And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. . . .
But if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people, while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights. . . .

Born and reared in Bermuda
Lawyer, trader, inventor, scholar, professor, judge, essayist, poet, gardener, stargazer – St. George Tucker was what the 18th century called "a man of parts."
St. George Tucker was born near Port Royal, Bermuda, in 1752, the son of Colonel Henry Tucker, a trader and owner of the Grove plantation. His christening name, St. George, had been in the family since about 1600, when Frances St. George married George Tucker of Kent, England.
Sailed for Virginia to study law
Reared in Bermuda, Tucker sailed for Virginia at age 19 to pursue an education in the law, a study he seems already to have begun. He enrolled at the College of William and Mary in 1772 and read under George Wythe, who had instructed Thomas Jefferson. Wythe examined and approved Tucker for the bar on April 4, 1774.
Virginia's courts closed as the Revolution began, and Tucker could not pursue his practice. He returned to Bermuda in June 1775, two months after the raid on Williamsburg's Magazine. Before he departed, he told Peyton Randolph and Jefferson of the existence of a similar magazine in Bermuda that might be a target for rebel retaliation.
St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries 1:App. 300
This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction. In England, the people have been disarmed, generally, under the specious pretext of preserving the game: a never failing lure to bring over the landed aristocracy to support any measure, under that mask, though calculated for very different purposes. True it is, their bill of rights seems at first view to counteract this policy: but the right of bearing arms is confined to protestants, and the words suitable to their condition and degree, have been interpreted to authorise the prohibition of keeping a gun or other engine for the destruction of game, to any farmer, or inferior tradesman, or other person not qualified to kill game. So that not one man in five hundred can keep a gun in his house without being subject to a penalty.

Pew first: Gun rights top gun control in major public opinion shift
By Paul Bedard | April 20, 2015 | 10:10 am
Exactly two years after President Obama's bid for gun control following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting died in Congress, a new poll has discovered a huge shift in public opinion to backing Second Amendment gun rights and away from controlling gun ownership.
The reason: Americans now believe having a gun is the best way to protect against crime, 63 percent to 30 percent.
Pew Research Center found that while support for gun control once reached 66 percent, it has dropped to 46 percent while support for gun rights has jumped 52 percent, the highest ever in the past 25 years.
"We are at a moment when most Americans believe crime rates are rising and when most believe gun ownership – not gun control – makes people safer," said the survey.
To say the shift in opinion is radical is not an understatement. It follows a short period where Americans were torn over gun ownership, but eventually sided with gun rights groups during the Obama years.
The findings also track with support for the National Rifle Association which had its second biggest national convention earlier this month and whose membership has reached five million.
Pew suggested that the change is the result of Americans believing that crime is a big problem, despite statistics showing the opposite.
"In the 1990s, the rate of violent crimes plummeted by more than half nationwide. Public perceptions tracked right along, with the share saying there was more crime in the U.S. over the past year falling from 87 percent in 1993 to just 41 percent by 2001," said Pew, adding: "In the new century, however, there's been a disconnect. A majority of Americans (63%) said in a Gallup survey last year that crime was on the rise, despite crime statistics holding near 20-year lows."
RELATED: ATF raises new concerns about AR-15 ammo
Pew said it is hard to explain the disconnect. "Why public views on crime have grown more dire is unclear, though many blame it on the nature of news coverage, reality TV and political rhetoric. Whatever the cause, this trend is not without consequence. Today, those who say that crime is rising are the most opposed to gun control: Just 45% want to see gun laws made more strict, compared with 53% of those who see crime rates as unchanged or dropping."

REGULATION May 30, 2015 - 03:10 PM EDT Administration preps new gun regulations BY*TIM DEVANEY 18177 Shares**
The Justice Department plans to move forward this year with more than a dozen new gun-related regulations, according to list of rules the agency has proposed to enact before the end of the Obama administration.
The regulations range from new*restrictions*on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements. Chief among them is a renewed effort to keep guns out of the hands of people who are mentally unstable or have been convicted of domestic abuse.
Gun safety advocates have been calling for such reforms since the Sandy Hook school shooting nearly three years ago in Newtown, Conn. They say keeping guns away from dangerous people is of primary importance.
But the gun lobby contends that such a sweeping ban would unfairly root out a number of prospective gun owners who are not a danger to society.
“It’s clear President Obama is beginning his final assault on our Second Amendment rights by forcing his anti-gun agenda on honest law-abiding citizens through executive force,” said Luke O’Dell, vice president of political affairs at the National Association for Gun Rights.
The Justice Department plans to issue new rules expanding criteria for people who do not qualify for gun ownership, according to the recently released Unified Agenda, which is a list of rules that federal agencies are developing.
Some of the rules come in response to President Obama’s call to reduce gun violence in the wake of Sandy Hook. He issued 23 executive actions shortly after the shooting aimed at keeping guns away from dangerous people, and some of those items remain incomplete.*
“If America worked harder to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, there would be fewer atrocities like the one that occurred in Newtown,” Obama said at the time.
“We can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale,” he added.
Gun control groups have rallied around Obama’s call to action, zeroing in on polices that would keep guns away from the mentally ill and domestic abusers.
Congressional efforts to expand background checks and keep guns away from dangerous people have failed in recent years, but the legislative defeats won’t stop the Justice Department from regulating.
The Justice Department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is looking to revive a rule proposed way back in 1998 that would block domestic abusers from owning guns.
As proposed, the regulation makes it illegal for some who has been convicted of a*misdemeanor domestic violence offense to own a gun.
The ATF plans to finalize the rule by November, according to the Unified Agenda.
But gun rights advocates are concerned the Obama administration will use this rule to unfairly target certain gun owners.
“That could be a person who spanked his kid, or yelled at his wife, or slapped her husband,” warned Michael Hammond, legislative counsel for the Gun Owners of America.
The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, and Americans for Responsible Solutions did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
But Everytown, a group financially backed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has argued that keeping guns out of the hands of domestic abusers can be a matter of life or death.
“American women are 11 times more likely to be shot and killed than women in other developed countries,” the group argues. “The high rate of domestic violence deaths in America is directly related to our weak gun laws. But we know that smart gun laws can—and do—stop domestic abuse from turning into murder."
The ATF is also looking to prohibit the mentally ill from owning firearms, which is attracting even more criticism from gun rights groups.
“The Obama administration is trying very hard to disqualify people from owning a gun on the basis that they are seeing a psychologist,” Hammond argued.
The NRA contends that many people who are mentally ill may not necessarily pose a danger to society — or as the gun lobby puts it, the policy “snares masses of mostly harmless individuals.”*
Gun rights advocates argue it would be more effective to ban people on an individual basis, as opposed to banning all people who are mentally ill.
“A person who experienced a temporary reaction to a traumatic event or who has trouble handling household finances may well be treated the same as a violent psychopath,” the NRA wrote.
"Not only is this unjust and stigmatizing, it creates disincentives for those who need mental health treatment to seek it, increasing whatever risks are associated with untreated mental illness,” it added.
Aside from*these issues, some gun rights advocates have also raised concerns about upcoming ATF rules that would require gun dealers to report gun thefts, provide gun storage and safety devices, and place restrictions on high-powered pistols, among other things.
“The Obama administration hates the Second Amendment, and it’s clear that every place where it can push, it will,” said Hammond. “This is an indication of an anti-gun administration trying to annoy us in any way it can."
Brady Campaign Case Targeting Online Ammo Dismissed By Judge

Brady Campaign Case Targeting Online Ammo Dismissed By Judge
An absurd attempt by the anti-gun*Brady Campaign to hold online ammunition and shooting sport accessory companies responsible for the actions of a madman*has been dismissed.
The lawsuit filed by the parents of a woman killed in the Colorado theater shootings, accusing four online retailers of improperly selling ammunition, tear gas, a high-capacity magazine and body armor used in the attack, has been dismissed.
According to court documents obtained by CBS4 Friday afternoon, Judge Richard P. Matsch dismissed the lawsuit filed against the defendants in the case: Lucky Gunner of Knoxville, Tennessee, Bullet Proof Body Armor of Tempe, Arizona, BTP Arms of New Oxford, Pennsylvania, and the Sportsman’s Guide of South St. Paul, Minnesota.
The lawsuit alleged it was illegal and negligent to sell the gear to James Holmes, who is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in the July 20, 2012, attack.
It stated the companies had no safeguards to keep dangerous people from buying their goods.
Brady’s attorneys simply had no viable case against the legal protections under federal law as provided by the*Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act*(PLCAA), which prevents harassment and frivolous lawsuits from gun control cultists.
Obama Planning To Pull The Trigger On Gun Control Executive Order
3:17 PM 12/03/2015
President Barack Obama’s aides are still working out a politically palatable way to implement a new gun control measure by executive order.
Plans to target private gun sales have been in the works for some time, but the administration is wary of political and potentially legal consequences of implementing the changes via executive order. Officials are analyzing state and local gun control efforts to find what they consider a winning strategy that will prevent mass shootings, reports the Los Angeles Times.
“That work includes looking at the gun show loophole,” a White House official involved in the work tells the LA Times. “But taking administrative action in this space is enormously complicated, with complex and intertwined policy, legal and operational considerations to take into account.”
Why Have There Been More Mass Shootings Under Obama than the Four Previous Presidents Combined?
December 3, 2015 | Truthstream Media | TruthstreamMedia.com | 39,135 views
We live in a world of short-term memories and long-term memory deficiencies. If the 24-hour news cycle was any indication, Americans appear to be bouncing from one catastrophic mass shooting to the next, with hardly any breathing room. Like this is just a regular occurrence America has learned to endure because… guns. It’s the prevalence of firearms in the hands of the people, the anti-gunners say. Calls to limit, rewrite, redefine, or outright dispose of the 2nd Amendment are rampant.
But no one is looking at the data. If they did, they would realize something is really, really, really wrong here.
No, there haven’t always been so many mass shootings. It hasn’t always been this way. Mass shootings have skyrocketed in this country just in the last seven years under President Obama.
The following was compiled using the database over at Mother Jones on mass shootings in the U.S. from 1982—2015, up to and including the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon on October 1st, 2015. It also includes the Wikipedia lists for mass shootings in the United States by year and postal killings in the U.S.
The following analysis considers the FBI’s definition of a mass murder, which is defined as “a number of murders (four or more) occurring during the same incident, with no distinctive time period between the murders”.
When all incidents where four or more people were shot in a single event are broken out by president going back to Reagan (considering the database only stretches back to 1982), there just so happens to have been a startling increase in mass shootings since Obama, the most pro-gun control president America has had in modern history, took office.
Mass Shootings under the Last Five Presidents
Ronald Reagan: 1981-1989 (8 years) 11 mass shootings
Incidents with 8 or more deaths = 5
George H. W. Bush: 1989-1993 (4 years) 12 mass murders
Incidents with 8 or more deaths = 3
Bill Clinton: 1993-2001 (8 years) 23 mass murders
Incidents with 8 or more deaths = 4
George W. Bush: 2001-2009 (8 years) 20 mass murders
Incidents with 8 or more deaths = 5
Barrack H. Obama: 2009-2015 (in 7th year) 162 mass murders
Incidents with 8 or more deaths = 18
(You can download the full list of names, dates, locations, and numbers of deaths per mass shooting by president prepared for this article here.)
Look at the difference between all other presidents and Barack Obama.
What that looks like on a chart:
Notice anything here? We’re talking about a more than six-fold increase from the number of mass shootings in the eight years Bush Jr. was president compared to the last seven years under Obama, and his 2nd term isn’t even up yet!
Not only that, but the number of mass shootings where the shooter killed eight or more people has also increased rather significantly:
What is going on here?
Obviously this isn’t so easily simplified as more guns in the hands of more crazy people, the way the media likes to spin it. We have more gun laws now than ever before. Less types of guns are legally available to the average citizen than ever before. We also have more “gun-free zones,” zones where, just by the way, most of these shootings happen (because mass shooters do not follow laws or care about zones, obviously). So that’s not it.
We have debated whether or not antidepressant medications are playing a role in these events. Even a cursory glance at the SSRI stories school shootings database would suggest there is some substantial evidence behind this theory. We know that many of these mass shooters were either on psychotropic medications at the time of the shooting, or withdrawing from them.
However, Prozac was approved for use in the United States back in 1987. Antidepressant medications have been around and in widespread use in America for decades now. That factor alone cannot entirely explain all these mass shootings recently.
Not to mention that five out of the 12 deadliest mass shootings in American history have happened not just since Barack Obama became president, but just under his first term as president alone. That’s nearly half.
Something else is going on here.
So… what is it?
After the controversial Sandy Hook shooting, Obama passed 23 gun control executive orders. He continually says wants to do more and he’s frustrated with how limited his powers as mere president are. He continually mentions wishing America’s gun control mirrored that of the UK and Australia, two countries that passed strict, sweeping gun bans following what many have called single mass shooting false flag events which happened just weeks apart in March and April 1996.
Speaking of Australia’s gun control laws after the suspicious Charleston shooting, Obama said:
“It was just so shocking the entire country said, ‘Well, we’re going to completely change our gun laws’, and they did. And it hasn’t happened since,” Obama said, discussing the shooting deaths of nine people at a historic black church in Charleston last week.
The suspicious April 1999 mass shooting at Columbine High School didn’t accomplish nearly the same gun control implementation here in America, although it did happen under another highly pro-gun control president, Bill Clinton. Perhaps one false flag just isn’t enough in a country that has been built upon a Constitution with a Bill of Rights and a 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Perhaps it can only be killed death-by-a-thousand-cuts style.
Now Obama says gun control will be his #1 top issue of focus for the last year of his final term as president.
He says his biggest frustration has been his inability to pass more gun control legislation.
He condemns these “routine” events and calls for more gun control each time another one happens. After the recent Planned Parenthood shooting, he said, “we can’t let this become the new normal… enough is enough.”
But when did it become the new normal? While the 2nd Amendment continues to be attacked each and every time another mass shooting occurs, just realize something: these events were never this “routine” until Obama became president.
San Bernardino: Female Attacker Pledged Allegiance to Islamic State, Al Qaeda Links Emerge
by Jordan Schachtel4 Dec 2015
Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, who killed 14 people and injured dozens more on Wednesday, have connections to radical Islamic groups, officials say.
New details related to the Islamic terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, California have emerged, revealing the possibility that the shooters were in contact with members of Al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
Investigators believe that the female attacker pledged allegiance to the Islamic State as the rampage was ongoing.
During the jihadi attack, Tashfeen Malik posted on Facebook that she was pledging allegiance to Islamic State “caliph” Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, officials told CNN. The investigators said she used an account under a different name.
WOW!! TOP Democrat ADMITS Obama Is ‘Working Hand-In-Hand With ISIS’!
this very fascinating interview with U.S. House of Representatives Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat representing Hawaii, she admits something that many conservatives have suspected for a long time.
Watch below (starting at the 1:45 mark):
Tulsi Gabbard is a top Democrat in the Democratic National Committee but she is one of the few honest Democrats who has actually criticized Obama on his foreign policy failures.
But, it must be noted that she says he’s essentially working hand in hand with Islamist extremists, but she’s not saying that he’s actually directly working with them. She admits that his foreign policy is so pathetic and poorly managed that he’s practically helping Islamist extremists.
And that’s bad enough for someone who’s supposed to be leader of the free world.
What do you think? Does this top Democrat have a point or is she exaggerating?
San Bernardino Jihadis Recruited by Islamic State Social Media Ambassadors
by Mary Chastain3 Dec 2015
Sources revealed to CBS News that the San Bernardino killers had been viewing Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) propaganda online, making them the latest in a long line of terror suspects the FBI is trying to monitor.
While direct recruitment from Islamic State officials from Iraq and Syria in the West is uncommon, ISIS recruiters have been known for years to have developed an extremely adept online propaganda system, using encrypted messaging apps as well as publicly viewable social media like Twitter and Facebook. Their attempts to attract Muslims to their cause have been significantly successful, law enforcement officials warn.
ISIS’ Navy SEALs “Made Me Laugh” Says USMC Veteran
ISIS is playing at Navy SEAL, but their lack of real proficiency may be less important than the video's utility as a recruitment tool
The Islamic State is now touting an elite, Navy SEAL-like group of swashbuckling, amphibious-style commandos who are able to spring from the water in a blink of an eye to take out enemies in broad daylight.
In a new video obtained by Vocativ, ISIS is shown unveiling its newest band of special forces, a black-clad brigade that purportedly uses the Tigris River in Iraq to stage a series of stealth attacks. Like previous attempts by the group to promote its prowess, the film is at turns terrifying and hilarious.
Military experts who reviewed the footage say it reveals little about the commandos’ actual proficiency as fighters. They concede, however, that the video proves to be a powerful piece of propaganda.
Surrender: San Fran's iconic, last gun shop to close over new regulations
By Hollie McKay
·Published September 28, 2015
Ever since it was opened in the 1950s by a celebrated Olympic shooter, High Bridge Arms has been a defiant fixture in San Francisco's Mission District, but a coming wave of new firearms restrictions has prompted the last gun shop in the liberal City by the Bay to pack it in.
The proposed new city regulations, which could only be aimed at High Bridge Arms, would have required the shop to take and preserve video of all transactions and turn customers' personal data over to police on a weekly basis. General Manager Steven Alcairo said the shop's owners finally threw in the towel after years of what they consider being unfairly targeted with burdensome rules and regulations. Past regulations have required the shop to bar ads and displays from its windows and install cameras and barriers around its exterior. The shop has 17 cameras as it is, and turns video over to police on request, he said.

America's founders foresaw the danger of elitist tyranny
By Alan Keyes
In previous generations, Americans had the sense to understand that if you vote for people who don't represent you, you get a government that doesn't represent you. That's self-evident. – Alan Keyes, LoyalToLiberty post, Sept. 23, 2012
Everywhere I go, I find conservatives complaining. They complain about what John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have done, or rather failed to do, with the GOP majority in Congress. They complain about the GOP's utter failure to confront Obama's treasonous foreign and national security policies. They complain about the party's failure to call Obama to account for his dictatorial edicts on immigration. They complain about the party's betrayal of its purported commitment to budgetary and fiscal discipline. They complain about the party's failure to hold anyone accountable for the continual assaults judges, justices, and Executive branch officials are launching against the U.S. Constitution every day. They complain about the GOP's surrender of the responsibilities and prerogatives of the U.S. Congress.
They especially complain about the fact that – though they keep voting for Republicans to represent them in elective office, giving them majorities in both Houses of Congress and a solid majority of state governorships and legislative bodies – they keep getting results that don't represent them.
"Why do they keep betraying us?" is the common theme.
"Why do you keep voting for them?" is my consistent answer.
"Because we don't have any choice," comes the refrain. "If we vote for anyone else, the Democrats will win."

The Terrorists Among Us
Forget Syria. The most dangerous religious extremists are migrants from North and South Carolina.
By William Saletan
North Carolina? It sounds absurd. When we think about immigration and terrorism, we think of Syria. But that’s not where our casualties are coming from. On Friday, a gunman killed three people and wounded nine more at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado. The suspect is white American Robert Lewis Dear. When police apprehended Dear, he uttered one telltale phrase: “no more baby parts.” People who have known or met Dear say he wasn’t a regular churchgoer. But they also report that he believed devoutly in the Bible and that he claimed to have read it “cover to cover.” In an online forum, Dear apparently spoke of Jesus and the “end times.” He painted or posted crosses on at least three of his homes.

Tragedy and Hope
A History of the World in Our Time
by Carroll Quigley, 1966
In effect, this creation of paper claims greater than the reserves available means that bankers were creating money out of nothing. The same thing could be done in another way, not by note-issuing banks but by deposit banks. Deposit bankers discovered that orders and checks drawn against deposits by depositors and given to third persons were often not cashed by the latter but were deposited to their own accounts. Thus there were no actual movements of funds, and payments were made simply by bookkeeping transactions on the accounts. Accordingly, it was necessary for the banker to keep on hand in actual money (gold, certificates, and notes) no more than the fraction of deposits likely to be drawn upon and cashed; the rest could be used for loans, and if these loans were made by creating a deposit for the borrower, who in turn would draw checks upon it rather than withdraw it in money, such "created deposits" or loans could also be covered adequately by retaining reserves to only a fraction of their value. Such created deposits also were a creation of money out of nothing, although bankers usually refused to express their actions, either note issuing or deposit lending, in these terms. William Paterson, however, on obtaining the charter of the Bank of England in 1694, to use the moneys he had won in privateering, said, "The Bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing." This was repeated by Sir Edward Holden, founder of the Midland Bank, on December 18, 1907, and is, of course, generally admitted today.
Pg. 51: The merchant bankers of London had already at hand in 1810-1850 the Stock Exchange, the Bank of England, and the London money market when the needs of advancing industrialism called all of these into the industrial world which they had hitherto ignored. In time they brought into their financial network the provincial banking centers, organized as commercial banks and savings banks, as well as insurance companies, to form all of these into a single financial system on an international scale which manipulated the quantity and flow of money so that they were able to influence, if not control, governments on one side and industries on the other. The men who did this, looking backward toward the period of dynastic monarchy in which they had their own roots, aspired to establish dynasties of international bankers and were at least as successful at this as were many of the dynastic political rulers. The greatest of these dynasties, of course, were the descendants of Meyer Amschel Rothschild (1743-1812) of Frankfort, whose male descendants, for at least two generations, generally married first cousins or even nieces. Rothschild's five sons, established at branches in Vienna, London, Naples, and Paris, as well as Frankfort, cooperated together in ways which other international banking dynasties copied but rarely excelled.
Pg. 52: The names of some of these banking families are familiar to all of us and should be more so. They include Raring, Lazard, Erlanger, Warburg, Schroder, Seligman, the Speyers, Mirabaud, Mallet, Fould, and above all Rothschild and Morgan. Even after these banking families became fully involved in domestic industry by the emergence of financial capitalism, they remained different from ordinary bankers in distinctive ways: (1) they were cosmopolitan and international; (2) they were close to governments and were particularly concerned with questions of government debts, including foreign government debts, even in areas which seemed, at first glance, poor risks, like Egypt, Persia, Ottoman Turkey, Imperial China, and Latin America; (3) their interests were almost exclusively in bonds and very rarely in goods, since they admired "liquidity" and regarded commitments in commodities or even real estate as the first step toward bankruptcy; (4) they were, accordingly, fanatical devotees of deflation (which they called "sound" money from its close associations with high interest rates and a high value of money) and of the gold standard, which, in their eyes, symbolized and ensured these values; and (5) they were almost equally devoted to secrecy and the secret use of financial influence in political life.
Pg. 53: The influence of financial capitalism and of the international bankers who created it was exercised both on business and on governments, but could have done neither if it had not been able to persuade both these to accept two "axioms" of its own ideology. Both of these were based on the assumption that politicians were too weak and too subject to temporary popular pressures to be trusted with control of the money system; accordingly, the sanctity of all values and the soundness of money must be protected in two ways: by basing the value of money on gold and by allowing bankers to control the supply of money. To do this it was necessary to conceal, or even to mislead, both governments and people about the nature of money and its methods of operation.
Pg. 62: In addition to their power over government based on government financing and personal influence, bankers could steer governments in ways they wished them to go by other pressures. Since most government officials felt ignorant of finance, they sought advice from bankers whom they considered to be experts in the field. The history of the last century shows, as we shall see later, that the advice given to governments by bankers, like the advice they gave to industrialists, was consistently good for bankers, but was often disastrous for governments, businessmen, and the people generally. Such advice could be enforced if necessary by manipulation of exchanges, gold flows, discount rates, and even levels of business activity. Thus Morgan dominated Cleveland's second administration by gold withdrawals, and in 1936-1938 French foreign exchange manipulators paralyzed the Popular Front governments. As we shall see, the powers of these international bankers reached their peak in the last decade of their supremacy, 1919-1931, when Montagu Norman and J. P. Morgan dominated not only the financial world but international relations and other matters as well. On November I l, 1927, the Wall Street Journal called Mr. Norman "the currency dictator of Europe." This was admitted by Mr. Norman himself before the Court of the Bank on March Zl, 1930, and before the Macmillan Committee of the House of Commons five days later. On one occasion, just before international financial capitalism ran, at full speed, on the rocks which sank it, Mr. Norman is reported to have said, "I hold the hegemony of the world."
Pg. 324: the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank, in the hands of men like Montagu Norman of the Bank of England, Benjamin Strong of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, Charles Rist of the Bank of France, and Hjalmar Schacht of the Reichsbank, sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.
Democrats urge U.S. to take 100,000 Syrian refugees
GOP warns of potential terrorists
By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Friday, September 11, 2015
Two top Democrats have called for the U.S. to accept 100,000 Syrian refugees next year, or 10 times the number President Obama proposed this week, saying America should “do our part.”
Reps. John Conyers Jr. and Zoe Lofgren, who are the two top House Democrats on the committee dealing with immigration, also said the U.S. should take a total of 200,000 refugees, or nearly three times the number accepted in 2014.
“It is time for the United States to join the global community for a humanitarian response,” the two lawmakers said. “We should do our part by admitting 200,000 refugees, with 100,000 reserved for refugees from Syria.”
With as many as 4 million Syrians believed to have been displaced by a crumbling government and multiple rebellions, countries around the globe are trying to decide what they can do. Refugees have been streaming into Europe, where officials are trying to figure out how many they can accommodate.
Pope Francis urged Catholic churches across Europe to house refugees, and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said its churches also stand ready to help.
But the debate in the U.S. separated from the chaos by distance, is only just beginning to develop.
Mr. Obama deployed his top aides to Capitol Hill this week to consult with key lawmakers — a requirement under the law if he wanted to increase the refugee caps.
But, but, HILLARY will save AMERIka!- When you have fully, over half the voting population that will vote for this vile, criminally insane witch, it just makes you wonder??? Are we(as a country) far too gone to be saved?
An article by Carroll Quigley in the American Anthropologist, Volume 75, Number 1, February 1973, pp. 319-322:
Mexican National Character and Circum-Mediterranean Personality Structure
Martin Needler's article on "Politics and National Character: the Case of Mexico" (1971) is perfectly correct as far as it goes, but it must be pointed out that the personality traits which he identifies as Mexican are products of a considerably wider and much older cultural entity. Mexico is a peripheral and very distinctive example of the Latin American cultural area which is itself a peripheral and somewhat distinctive example of the Mediterranean cultural area. Some time ago I identified the whole cultural area and the personality structure it tended to produce as aspects of "the Pakistani-Peruvian Axis" (1966:1112-1122, reprinted as 1968:452-463). If I am correct in this, Needler is parochial in attributing "Mexican national character" to a combination of "the Indian's fatalism and the proud self-assertion of the Spaniard" (Needler 1971:757).
A broader view of this subject would show that Mexico is a peripheral example of the "Pakistani-Peruvian cultural area" and that Mexican national character is merely a local variant of the personality structure of this larger area. That is why Silverman's picture of south Italian personality is so similar to Needler's idea of Mexican character (Silverman 1968).
This Mediterranean personality type is marked by various traits mentioned by Needler: low self-esteem, fatalism, defeatism, distrust of all persons outside a narrow kin group, pessimism, preoccupation with death, self-assertion, and machismo. These traits, however, should be associated in clusters and correlated with other cultural manifestations such as: (1) low respect for manual work, especially for agricultural work; (2) higher esteem for urban residence than for rural living, associated with neglect of the countryside, damage to natural vegetation, and much cruelty to animals, especially to domestic animals; (3) emphasis on honor, both personal and family, as a chief aim of life; (4) dietary customs which mix protein and vegetables within a nest or container of starch, on the same plate and in the same mouthful, unlike the core of Western civilization, which tends to segregate these three kinds of food, on the same plate or even into separate dishes. The personality traits of this larger area tend to cluster about two points: (1) The restriction of personal trust and loyalty within the kinship group (usually the extended or nuclear family) with a consequent inability to offer loyalty, trust, or personal identification to residential groups (villages, neighborhoods, parishes), voluntary associations, religious beliefs, or the secular state, resulting in large-scale lack of "public spirit," combined with "corruption," and paralysis of these other kinds of associations. (2) The combination of powerful patriarchal social tendencies with female inferiority (except as a mechanism for producing sons) leads to many psychological ambiguities: strong emphasis on female premarital virginity (both as a symbol of family honor and as an economic good), segregation of the sexes in social life, fear of women as a threat men's virility (witches and belief in "the evil eye"), the need to demonstrate male virility by social "touchiness" and other behavior, including fantasies of demonstrations of male dominance over bulls, other men, and unattached women.
In the last generation or two, we have had numerous local studies of the culture-and-personality type dealing with portions of this wide area (Pitt-Rivers and Kenny on Spain; Banfield, Moss, Cancian, Silverman, and others on Italy; Campbell, Kavadias, Kanelli. and others on Greece; and numerous studies of the Near East or North Africa). Many of these consider the personality types they observe as consequences of local conditions of economic, national, religious, or historic origin. A few have seen the wider range of what they observe. Thus Balikci (1966:164) wrote, "Behind obvious cultural differences, many Mediterranean societies share certain basic cultural patterns... [with] basic cross-cultural similarities in regard to sex behavior, certain family roles, the position of the family in society, and the dichotomy of kinsmen and strangers." Opler (1970:866) recognizes both the areal spread and the deep historical roots of these traits when he writes, "The Southern Italian family is in great measure understood if one considers it as a peasant society, as a circum-Mediterranean type, as one influenced by Roman history or even by the earlier pagan Classic Greek, or later Hellenistic traditions."
How scarcity, crime, overpopulation, tribalism, and disease are rapidly destroying the social fabric of our planet
Robert D. Kaplan
| February 1994 Issue
The Minister's eyes were like egg yolks, an aftereffect of some of the many illnesses, malaria especially, endemic in his country. There was also an irrefutable sadness in his eyes. He spoke in a slow and creaking voice, the voice of hope about to expire. Flame trees, coconut palms, and a ballpoint-blue Atlantic composed the background. None of it seemed beautiful, though. "In forty-five years I have never seen things so bad. We did not manage ourselves well after the British departed. But what we have now is something worse—the revenge of the poor, of the social failures, of the people least able to bring up children in a modern society." Then he referred to the recent coup in the West African country Sierra Leone. "The boys who took power in Sierra Leone come from houses like this." The Minister jabbed his finger at a corrugated metal shack teeming with children. "In three months these boys confiscated all the official Mercedes, Volvos, and BMWs and willfully wrecked them on the road." The Minister mentioned one of the coup's leaders, Solomon Anthony Joseph Musa, who shot the people who had paid for his schooling, "in order to erase the humiliation and mitigate the power his middle-class sponsors held over him."
It’s nearly impossible to get fired at the DEA (or the rest of the government)
posted at 9:21 am on September 28, 2015 by Jazz Shaw
USA Today has a revealing, if disgusting, report this week which shows just how great it can be to land a government job these days, at least in some quarters of the establishment. At the Drug Enforcement Agency, for example, it’s nearly impossible to be terminated from your job for things such as being late for work, failure to correctly fill out your time sheet, parking in the wrong spot, running an illegal drug ring of your own or having sex parties with prostitutes.
The Obama Administration: Religious Freedoms for American Muslims, Not American Christians
Michael Brown | Oct 29, 2015
If we’ve learned anything here in America in the last few months, it is this: When your religious faith comes in conflict with your job, if you are a Muslim, your faith is protected and sacred; if you are a Christian, it is not.
We all know what happened to Christian bakers, florists, photographers, and county clerks who refused to participate in same-sex “marriages” because of their religious faith. They were found guilty by the courts and fined or punished or even imprisoned.
And we know where the Obama administration stood on these issues, to the point that last year, Attorney General Eric Holder instructed attorneys general nationwide that they were not obligated to defend state laws – meaning, specifically, bans on same-sex “marriage” – if they found them to be discriminatory.
But when it comes to freedom of religion for Muslims, the results in the courts are different, the reaction from the administration is different, and even the response from the media is different.
Back in April, some Muslim cab drivers in Cleveland refused to drive taxis carrying ads for the upcoming gay Olympic games.
Beverly Hills Becoming Supercar Playground for Middle Eastern Mega Rich

L.A.'s supercar invasion was exemplified last weekend, when a $1.5 million Ferrari LaFerrari was captured on video racing a Porsche 911 GT3 on a residential street in Beverly Hills.
For the past few summers, rich young Saudis, Qataris, Kuwaitis and other Middle Easterners, accompanied by their personal Ferraris, Bugattis and Aventadors, have flocked to Beverly Hills after their former haunts in Paris, London, Cannes and Monaco became less receptive to the crush of super-expensive supercars with Arabic tags drawing crowds of gaping rubberneckers.

Americans Bought Enough Guns Black Friday To Create a New Military Branch
A petulant President Barack Obama demanded that Americans talk about gun control over Thanksgiving.
Citizens responded by buying enough firearms in one day to field an entire new military the size of the Marine Corps, with guns left over to equip 2-4 Army divisions.
Mr. President you have you answer.
It was a rousing “screw you.”
* * *
Exploitative members of the mainstream media and the Democrat Party have attempted to use the Islamic terror attacks in France to frighten Americans into passing “Minority Report” legislation for the past few weeks. This legislation would strip American citizens of their core rights without a trial, or*without them even being accused of committing a crime.
Rather than discuss the renewed threat of Islamic terrorism or the thousands of Syrian refugees that will soon be streaming into the country, President Obama wants families to focus their conversations on gun control while they are enjoying their turkey dinner*this Thanksgiving.
In a press briefing on*Monday, White House Press Secretary*Josh Earnest continued to push the president’s*gun control agenda.*The White House is now focusing on*an effort*by Democrats to ban Americans who are on the “no-fly” list from purchasing a firearm.
“As people sitting around the Thanksgiving table talking about these issues, as they should, and I’m sure they will all across the country, I hope that’s a question that will be raised and asked by members around the table,” Earnest said, referring to the bill sponsored by congressional Democrats.
A stunning 40% of the people on this so-called “terror watch list”—somewhere between 280,00-300,000 souls—have*no ties at all to terror groups. The FBI, CIA, NSA, and other intelligence organizations find the list to be almost worthless, and have not called for Congress to pass this legislation. this is nothing more or less than an attempt by one political party to amass power for itself at the expense of the citizenry.
BREAKING: Obama/Jarrett Warn FBI Director Over Anti-Muslim Tone (UPDATED)

FBI Neglect of San Bernardino Crime Scene Fits a Pattern
by*JOEL B. POLLAK4 Dec 2015
The shocking sight of journalists storming into the apartment of the San Bernardino terrorists, less than 48 hours after the attack, was apparently allowed by the FBI, which handed the apartment back over to the landlord, who let the media in with a crowbar.
CNN had a reporter on the scene, but its own analyst Harry Houck was shocked, calling it a “screw-up.”
VIDEO: Former Congressman DARES Loretta Lynch to Prosecute Him in Scathing Rant
The day after the horrific terrorist San Bernardino shooting spree,*Attorney General Loretta Lynch pledged to a group*of Muslim activists*that she would take aggressive action against anyone who used “anti-Muslim rhetoric” that “edges toward violence.”
Joe Walsh, former Congressman from Illinois,*didn’t back down*from the Attorney General’s*threat. In fact, Walsh has*released a statement to*Hypeline News*directly challenging Lynch:
What the hell does that mean? I have a 1st Amendment right, Ms Lynch, to say whatever I want about Muslims.
You want to try and prosecute me for what I say? I dare you. Here goes:
Most Muslims around the world are terrorists, support terrorism, and/or support Sharia Law. They are our enemy. I don’t want them in America. Any Muslim that won’t assimilate should get the hell out of America. Any Muslim that is a terrorist or supports terrorism should be killed. If “Moderate” Muslims don’t speak out against terrorism, they are our enemy and we should call them out and kick them out of this country. I hope there is a backlash against Muslims because Islam, as practiced by most Muslims, is not a religion of peace, and all of us who do live in peace should do whatever we can to defeat Islam.
There Ms Lynch. As an American, I have a right to say everything I just did. And I will continue to speak the truth about Islam in the hopes that others will wake up to this truth and do what we can to defeat this evil in our midst.
Is that “anti-Muslim rhetoric” that “edges toward violence.” Go ahead and prosecute me. I dare you.
“The Muslim American community is expanding, which is beautiful.” I doubt you would ever hear these words uttered by a Republican governmental official anywhere. And we definitely know it’s not something you will hear from the 2016 GOP presidential candidates.
But those were the very words that United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch told the sold-out crowd on Thursday night at theMuslim Advocates*10th*anniversary dinner.
As the emcee of this event, I was excited to hear what the nation’s highest law enforcement official was going to say. I frankly expected to hear more along the lines of broad platitudes about hate is wrong, freedom of religion for all, etc. But that’s not what Lynch gave us.
Pamela Geller: If Loretta Lynch Wants to Ban ‘Violent Talk,’ She Should Ban the Quran
In the wake of the San Bernardino jihad slaughter, Obama’s jihad denial took a malevolent and tyrannical turn. The day after a horrific ISIS rampage, Obama’s*Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, pledged to an Islamic supremacist lobbying group*that she would prosecute anyone who used “anti-Muslim” rhetoric.
Lynch declared: “When we talk about the First Amendment we [must] make it clear that actions predicated on violent talk are not American. They are not who we are, they are not what we do, and they will be prosecuted. My message not just to the Muslim community but to all Americans is: we cannot give in to the fear that these backlashes are really based on.”
If Lynch is serious in prosecuting hate speech, then she will have to start closing down mosques and banning the Quran. She wants to restrict the First Amendment so as to curb “actions predicated on violent talk?” Then she should ban this “violent talk”:
And slay them wherever you come upon them, and expel them from where they expelled you; persecution is more grievous than slaying. But fight them not by the Holy Mosque until they should fight you there; then, if they fight you, slay them — such is the recompense of unbelievers, but if they give over, surely Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate. Fight them, till there is no persecution and the religion is Allah’s; then if they give over, there shall be no enmity save for evildoers. (Quran 2:191-193)
Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that Allah has preferred in bounty one of them over another, and for that they have expended of their property. Righteous women are therefore obedient, guarding the secret for Allah’s guarding. And those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them. (Quran 4:34)
They wish that you should disbelieve as they disbelieve, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of Allah; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper. (Quran 4:89)
This is the recompense of those who fight against Allah and His Messenger, and hasten about the earth, to do corruption there: they shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall alternately be struck off; or they shall be banished from the land. That is a degradation for them in this world; and in the world to come awaits them a mighty chastisement. (Quran 5:33)
When thy Lord was revealing to the angels, ˜I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers’ hearts terror; so smite above the necks, and smite every finger of them! (Quran 8:12)
Make ready for them whatever force and strings of horses you can, to strike terror in the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides them that you know not; Allah knows them. And whatsoever you expend in the way of Allah shall be repaid you in full; you will not be wronged. (Quran 8:60)
Then, when the sacred months are drawn away, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way; Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate. (Quran 9:5)
Fight those who believe not in Allah and the Last Day and do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden — such men as practise not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book — until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled. (Quran 9:29)
Oh, by the way: The San Bernardino jihadi got a visa to enter the U.S. by providing a fake address;*Update: Or did she?
Allahpundit, Dec 4, 2015
A fine end*to a fine week for federal law enforcement. Someone, either*the NSA or the FBI, obviously dropped the ball on sniffing these two degenerates out before they made their move. Then the FBI declared Farook’s apartment clear despite the fact that it was still*“stuffed full of documents, notebooks, photos, business cards, IDs,”*which freed the media to go trampling through the crime scene. Now this.
It’s a good day for Donald Trump and his message that we’re governed by imbeciles, particularly on immigration, says*Ross Douthat. And so it is.
“The Ziiggii Theory” – The Go-Pro Camera Footage as a Possible Motive….
San Bernadino Terrorists: Syed Farook – Tashfeen MalikI’m calling this “The Ziiggii Theory” because early on contributor Ziiggii was instrumental in showing how the FBI and USMS (US Marshals) were using Stingray Flights in/around the San Bernadino area during the terrorist attack.
ISIS is fighting Russian fighter planes. And when ISIS doesn’t have shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles, they must think of some other more effective way to destroy those Russian fighters decimating their forces. Those ideas must be creative, powerful, and effective. And so ISIS is reaching for the only materials they supposedly have to fashion new weaponry to mount a potent defense. This time, they are reaching for their condoms.
How the Pakistani entered the American Homeland
Chidanand Rajghatta*|*TNN*|*Dec 5, 2015, 07.31AM IST
In a dramatic twist to the San Bernardino shooting case that resulted in 35 casualties, including 14 dead, investigators are now focusing on Tashfeen Malik, the 27-year Pakistani wife of Syed Rizwan Farook, who reportedly pledged allegiance to ISIS on the day of the carnage through a fake Facebook account. The Pakistani media is also reporting that US officials have found Tashfeen had ties to clerics of the Lal Masjid in Islamabad, an extremist hub that was attacked during the Musharraf regime resulting in scores of casualties, including many women, and an eruption in extremist anger.
