Is This Terror Related?

Surely someone, somewhere, is asking that question. Mid-level investigators want to know what was the motive of the killer. It’s a waste of time.

Authorities are looking for this man after the shooting at the mall.

Authorities are looking for this man after the shooting at the mall.

(CNN)A man carrying a rifle entered a Macy’s store at a mall in Washington state, shot dead four women and a man, and vanished into the night, police said.

Authorities believe only one person fired the shots Friday night at Cascade Mall in Burlington, about an hour north of Seattle.

A search is underway for an armed man who headed toward Interstate 5 after the attack, said Sgt. Mark Francis, a spokesman for the Washington State Patrol.”

“Charlotte violence sparks self defense gun buying spree”

line-of-customers

The explosion of racial violence in Charlotte, N.C. has led to a gun buying spree by locals worried about their safety.

At Hyatt Guns, one of the nation’s largest, staff arrived Thursday morning after the second night of riots and encountered a line of buyers.

[…]

“Sales last night were brisk. Most of the purchases were self defense shotguns and 12 gauge buckshot,” he said.”

‘Peaceful’ Protests In Charlotte, North Carolina

Here are a few facts about them. They are not as ‘Peaceful’ as some would have you believe.

From Zero Hedge:

Stealing and looting cash registers from local businesses is not a legitimate form of protest
A “protester” shooting another “protester” is not a legitimate form of protest.
Physically attacking reporters is not a legitimate form of protest.
Throwing rocks off bridges at passing vehicles full of families is not a legitimate form of protest
Beating up innocent people in parking lots because they’re white is not a legitimate form of protest.
Smashing up apartment windows where black people live to “protest” in favor of ‘Black Lives Matter’ is not a legitimate form of protest.
Trashing your own neighborhood is not a legitimate form of protest.
Looting the Charlotte Hornets team store so you can steal basketball merchandise is not a legitimate form of protest
Attempting to hijack cars and terrify their innocent occupants is not a legitimate form of protest.

From Doug Ross:

1. There’s a Black President
2. There’s a Black Congressman
3. There’s a Black Mayor
4. There’s a Black District Attorney
5. There’s a Black Chief of Police
6. The officer involved in the shooting was Black
7. The victim perp was Black

So whose fault is it when the perp gets taken out?

Professor Glenn Reynolds Sinned Against Political Correctness With 3-Word Tweet

Now he must be made to pay.

Three little words: “Run them down”. Just how much investigating will they require?

“Tennessee investigates professor’s tweet about Charlotte”

glenn-reynolds-square

The university is committed to academic freedom, freedom of speech, and diverse viewpoints, all of which are important for an institution of higher education and the free exchange of ideas,” she wrote. “My colleagues and I in the university’s leadership support peaceful disobedience and all forms of free speech, but we do not support violence or language that encourages violence.”

She called the concerns about the tweet from students and staff, along with those from citizens across the country, “serious and legitimate.”

From The Tennesseean.

Reynolds has also been writing a column for USA Today. They have suspended him.

“… The Seduction Of Easy Answers…”

While reading an article in Financial Resistance titled, “7 Signs Chicago is a Now a “Third-World” City”, I came across this gem:

“4. Declining Industry”

This is the aftermath of free trade agreements which export jobs overseas, destroy middle class jobs, and enrich corporate elites.

This is the aftermath of free trade agreements which export jobs overseas, destroy middle class jobs, and enrich corporate elites.

Chicago is one of the many “rust belt” American cities that have seen a major decline in their manufacturing industry. Just like Detroit, free trade agreements have ravaged Chicago’s industrial core, leaving thousands unemployed and destroying much of the middle class. While there are many reasons for Chicago’s economic decline, “free trade” is one of the biggest factors.”

RD Walker told in a comment to a post below of a prayer that asks for protection from easy answers. This writer is a good example of what the prayer refers to.

Obviously, the writer has taken a position against free trade. The way he presents it, though, is diabolical and wrong. Why do you think he is wrong?

MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) — Three men have been arrested after creating a security scare atop a Miami Beach penthouse.

Mohamed Azab Youssef, 39, Artur Schaback, 28, and Ivan Suhharev, 28, were apprehended by Miami Beach Police Friday, September 17th.

Police said Schaback and Suhharev were witnessed aiming an AR-15 rifle off the penthouse balcony at 1100 Collins Avenue, including Schaback wearing a mask over his face.

One caller told 911 they were pointing the firearm towards the busy street at citizens and tourists walking by.”

Why Do Democrats Officially Support The ‘Black Lives Matter’ Movement?

obama-blm

Really, why do they do it? What’s in it for the national party to support a violent movement that is based on lies?

Hillary Clinton meets with BLM activists

Hillary Clinton meets with BLM activists

Certainly, Democrats have never shied away from telling untruths but the whole movement was started with the, “Hands Up – Don’t Shoot”, meme after Michael Brown shooting in Missouri. Brown never put his hands up and said, “Don’t Shoot”. Instead he tried to use his superior size and strength to take a police officer’s pistol away from him. He went so far as to corner the cop in his car while trying to disarm him. That stupid move cost him his life. In a struggle like that there is no way to know who will be the victor. In this case the police man was able to reach his gun and shoot his attacker.

Another falsehood that supports the ‘Black Lives Matter’ cause is the belief that cops are racist and systematically hunting down black men and killing them. While there have been instances in the past where an individual law man did commit murder the notion that the problem is rampant and common is false.

blm-am-i-next

One of the results of this affirmation of a bunch of untruths some black people have become violent. They are taking the false narrative as a reason to attack white people.

12-white-bodies

Is this what Democrats want? Are they engineering violent responses from the black community?

Yes.

Progressives desire a central world government. That can only happen if the existing United States is destroyed. They have control of education, the bureaucracy, much of finance, and are keeping millions of Americans idle and dependent with payments from the central treasury. Those idle, dependent Americans are the ‘Civilian Force’ that Barack Obama called for during his 2008 campaign.

His words and actions have given them strength and his supporters are giving them money. The whole movement is based on lies and emotions. What does Black Lives Matter bring to Democrats?

Bomber To 911 Operator: “There Will Be More”…

… And sure enough there are. The police were using a robot to try to disarm the device when it went off. It’s a good thing they no longer make men put on padding to do it.

Don’t expect this to be the last, either.

The first Presidential candidate to come out with a plan to reduce these attacks will pull away into a strong lead, even if the plan is incomplete. Americans worry about the possibility of terror attacks. We worry about our safety and the safety of others – even those we don’t know.

Improvised explosive devices are a cowardly but effective method to induce fear into the populace.

President Obama and his alter-ego Hillary Clinton will take no effective stance. These attacks are done by members of the Islamic cult. They won’t say so. Instead they want to tell people it’s home-grown terror from Tea-Party types. That has never happened and will not but they have said it long enough that many on the left, including media types, believe it. The first candidate to say out loud what Americans know to be true – that it’s radical, hateful Muslims, and come up with the germ of an idea to address it will win in November. Americans are not stupid. Except for the few left-wing haters we all know who is doing this and why.

“Bomb Explodes At New Jersey Train Station As Police Discover Five Explosive Devices”

One day after an IED exploded in a busy midtown Manhattan sidewalk, an explosion took place at a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey, after a suspicious backpack was found. The detonation was “not controlled”, the city’s mayor said. Meanwhile, the FBI has questioned five people in connection with Saturday’s Manhattan blast. Elizabeth’s mayor, Christian Bollwage, said the blast occurred when authorities were trying to “disarm” the backpack, and that the explosion was not controlled.”

Taxpayers Are Leaving Gun-Free Zones

It’s true that these places are gun-free zones. They also are the most expensive places in the country in which to live, have the highest taxes, and are least free. Unsurprisingly all have been controlled by Democrats for generations.

“New Study Finds Taxpayers Are Fleeing New York, Illinois and California”

panic2

A new demographics study, posted on newgeography.com, found that more tax filers are fleeing the state of New York than any other state in the country. Frankly, we’re shocked people wouldn’t want to live in a state with the highest cost of living, highest home prices, highest state income tax rate and highest property tax rate…what about the cultural benefits? We guess the bankers and hedgies have finally figured out that they can conduct their business from pretty much any location with an internet connection and then visit New York when/if necessary. Per the same study, Illinois lost the second highest number of taxpayers and California was not far behind in third.”

Clinton Wants To Disarm The Little People

I Hope She Can Cook

Actually there are a lot of jobs she could do. Special Forces just isn’t one of them. There are a couple of lessons from this. First, no matter how much you want to you can’t legislate success. Men and women are physically different. The Special forces training was designed for men who have stronger, tougher body types.

Second, it appears that the training regimen has not been dumbed down so women can pass it. That’s good for our military.

“First female soldier in Green Beret training fails to complete the course”

green-berets-with-log

The first female soldier to participate in the Army’s initial training for the Green Berets — side by side with men — failed to complete the course, The Washington Times has learned.

The enlisted soldier is the first woman to attend U.S. Army Special Forces Assessment and Selection, the first step toward earning the Special Forces name and the coveted green beret.

Since Defense Secretary Ashton Carter opened all combat jobs to women in December, a number of female troops have applied for direct combat roles from which they had long been banned. No woman has achieved the qualifications to become an Army Ranger or Green Beret, a Navy SEAL, a Marine Corps infantry officer or an Air Force parajumper, among other combat specialties.”

Anti-Islamic Sentiment Flares In Small Georgia Town

This will be called Islamophobia but these men do not look like they are the least afraid of Islam. They do oppose it, however.

The report is from the UK Express. The person who wrote it, Oli Smith, call the men ‘Violent’ even though no violence was perpetrated.

The violent group of right-wing protesters carried guns into a local square to demonstrate against “the presence of Muslims” in the country

The meeting, which was expected to lift a ban on new places of worship, was called off amid growing tensions in Newton County, Georgia.”

Taking A Closer Look At The Democrat Vice-Presidential Candidate

“Tim Kaine’s radical roots”

clinton-kaine

According to the media, Tim Kaine took a life transforming “mission” trip to Latin America in 1980. Conveniently left out of these stories, are the radical reality of the Cold War in Latin America and Tim Kaine’s Soviet sympathizing mentors. In fact, whatever Kaine’s intentions, he more likely met Karl Marx than Jesus Christ while there.

Connect the dots with a little history, and an alarming picture emerges of Kaine’s adventures with radicals and revolutionaries in 1980s Latin America.

Reports indicate that in Honduras, “Mr. Kaine embraced an interpretation of the gospel, known as liberation theology…”

“Religious freedom’ is just a code word for intolerance”

This outrageous statement came from the Chairman of the United States Civil Rights Commission, Martin Castro. He is showing himself to be a good little progressive, spouting the anti-American, religion hating language one would expect from the man who appointed him, Barack Obama.

This is the kind of rhetoric that is designed to divide Americans into separate groups that hate each other, much the same way that Obama has dealt with the racial divide.

Martin Castro

Martin Castro

Apparently, “religious freedom” and “religious liberty” are no longer constitutional rights guaranteed by the First Amendment, but “code words” for intolerance. Or so says the chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

The idea that the First Amendment is about intolerance helps explain Democrats’ recent efforts to weaken it in Congress. He said the concept of religious freedom is really about “Christian supremacy” and should be governed by anti-discrimination laws.

Chairman Martin Castro’s remarks were included in a report released Thursday titled: “Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling Nondiscrimination Principles with Civil Liberties.” A link to the actual report on the USCCR’s website is currently broken.”
