Everyone Is Asking How We Can Stop Mass Shootings Like Umpqua

We can’t. But we can reduce the frequency of them and the number of victims of each attempt.


If reducing both how often they occur and how many people die at the hands of successful madmen appeal to you the answers are simple but not easy. Let’s break this down into the two goals. Other goals are also possible. You may think of one or more. If so it will add to this discussion.

1. Frequency: There are two ways to decrease how often someone shoots up a school, mall, or cinema:

A. Do away with gun free zones. Make sure each institution hires trained armed guards. As things stand right now almost all schools and a lot of businesses restrict even law enforcement officers from bringing firearms onto the grounds. This is not only foolish, it’s criminal. It is more important that there be someone there to shoot back at an attacker than it is to worry about the feelings of someone who claims to be traumatized by the mere sight of a gun. These guards must be well trained and well armed. They must have a reasonable chance of stopping an incident even if there are multiple perpetrators.

These killers are going to gun-free zones in an effort to rack up a large score of dead people. This brings up the other way to reduce frequency.

B. Stop identifying the shooter to the public. This includes the news media. Today everyone on radio, television, and the internet has told the name of the Oregon perpetrator, shown his picture, and interviewed his friends and family. That should stop. People who have the mental illness that moves them to mass killing want to be recognized even if they die in the attempt. They want to have their names spoken and their actions remembered by others with similar forms of illness. If they don’t get the notoriety they will have less reason to act out their fantasy.

2. Force the killings to include fewer victims:

The fact that there were no armed guards at Umpqua allowed the killer to kill whomever he wanted. Had there been one or more armed, trained guards to provide opposition the toll would have been smaller. As a matter of fact there was one armed man on the Umpqua campus, a military veteran, but he was prevented from interfering with the carnage. Had he been allowed to intervene he might well have saved lives.

The faculties if this school and any other that prohibit security from being able to stop an active killer bear a portion of the responsibility for the large number shot. Action should be taken against them for intentionally making the places they manage more dangerous with their foolish notions.


Mullah Krekar Describes Religion Of Peace To Norwegian News Man

He answers every question openly and honestly. Those who do not fear Islam should watch this. Those who do fear Islam should as well. We all need to know. Our own Notamobster has been warning us about this. He studied Islam and understands more than I.

It’s all very simple when you understand. It is not the Mullahs who are sending people to jihad. It is the Koran. They are just quoting it.

This Mullah makes the point also that the Koran is not just a book of religion. It is also filled with instructions for living and for politics. They are not separate.


This Woman Is President Of Umpqua Community College And She Is Incompetent

She emphasizes that the campus is a gun-free zone. They have one security guard and two people administering him and none of them are armed. She says that after this shooting none of that will change. She lives in a world of unicorns and sweetness. She was just shown that her approach is wrong, foolish, and dangerous. In spite of that she will make no changes.

She is stupid, dangerous, and unwilling to learn from her mistakes.

27 Ways To Be A Modern Pussy


From the New York Slimes Men’s Style section, we read an article that tells all of you mouth breathing feebs out there 27 ways to be a modern man.

Being a modern man today is no different than it was a century ago. It’s all about adhering to principle. Sure, fashion, technology and architecture change over time, as do standards of etiquette, not to mention ways of carrying oneself in the public sphere. But the modern man will take the bits from the past that strike him as relevant and blend them with the stuff of today.

Some example from the list;

3. The modern man is considerate. At the movie theater, he won’t munch down a mouthful of popcorn during a quiet moment. He waits for some ruckus.

8. The modern man uses the proper names for things. For example, he’ll say “helicopter,” not “chopper” like some gauche simpleton.

20. On occasion, the modern man is the little spoon. Some nights, when he is feeling down or vulnerable, he needs an emotional and physical shield.

25. The modern man has no use for a gun. He doesn’t own one, and he never will.

26. The modern man cries. He cries often.

My list on becoming a modern man: 1. Don’t.


“Carson: Hitler could happen in US”

Dr. Carson is right but he will be ridiculed by the media and progressives. Those two groups are supporting the ever-growing intrusions into the freedoms Americans enjoy. If a Hitler did take control of the United States they would be the people who helped make it happen.

Actually, anyone who took over the US as a tyrant would be far worse than Hitler. Germany did not have energy and raw materials that were necessary for winning the war. They had to conquer areas that had what they needed first. There would be no such need in the United States.


GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson said Wednesday that a government like Nazi Germany’s could reign over the United States.

Carson argued during a campaign stop in New Hampshire that a similar regime is possible in any nation that relinquishes its freedoms.”

Why Are Conservative Republicans Calling For Ouster Of Mitch McConnell?


It’s because he will not fight – or even consider – fighting progressive Democrat policies. He gives them everything they want. Now he’s trying to do it again.

The Conservative indictment of the “leadership” of Boehner and McConnell has been that they have regularly failed to stand for conservative policy and have all too readily caved-in to Obama on matters such as funding Planned Parenthood, Obama’s illegal executive amnesty, spending, the deficit and raising the national debt ceiling.

So what is Mitch McConnell’s response to conservative calls for his resignation?

He called for another deal with Obama, this time on a two year spending plan.

“We’d like to settle the top line for both years so next year we can have a regular appropriations process,” McConnell said according to reporting by The Washington Examiner’s Susan Ferrechio. “The president, Speaker Boehner and I spoke about getting started on discussions last week, and I would expect them to start very soon.”

McConnell and Boehner have been talking with Obama for a week about giving him a two-year spending plan that will take away Congress’ control of the purse. That is the only thing they have to control the Executive branch and they are planning to give it away. It’s no wonder Conservativess are disgusted and are calling for McConnell’s removal. He and Boehner are giving away the only control that Congress has. And to this out-of-control President.

There Is Talk Of Trey Gowdy Leaving The House

Gowdy has been a bulldog. His history as a prosecutor has shown him that people make up lies when they are in trouble and he sees through them.

House Select Committee on the Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi

Trouble is he is being undermined in his efforts by House leadership. While John Boehner is leaving, his likely replacement has stupidly begun undermining the House committee investigating the death of four Americans in Benghazi. Kevin McCarthy, Boehner’s likely successor, appeared on Sean Hannity’s TV program and all but said that the Benghazi committee was convened to damage Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Now there are rumors that Gowdy may be stepping down next year. Who could blame him if House leaders treat him and his efforts so foolishly. Gowdy’s office was asked about the rumor but they denied it.

“Congresswoman Defends Abortion: “We Don’t Do Children a Favor By Forcing Women To Give Birth””

It’s sad but true. This woman says abortion is somehow good for the aborted children? She is mad.

Rep. Gwen Moore, Democrat, Wisconsin's 4th district

Rep. Gwen Moore, Democrat, Wisconsin’s 4th district

On September 28th, Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wisconsin, 4th) elaborated on her support of abortion and Planned Parenthood at a press conference held by the Congressional Black Caucus. The Daily Caller reports that the Congresswoman indicated that some women are forced into carrying their unborn children to term because they can’t afford abortions.

She said, “It has all kinds of implications on a family — not just financial, but emotional, social and the ability of a family to provide for their children really relies on that family being able to decide when and how many children and if they will have any children at all.” She added, “I don’t think we do children a favor by forcing women to give birth.”

So, Mayor Rahm, What Exactly Are The Values Of The People Of Chicago?

Wisdom from the man who can't count past nine and a half.

Wisdom from the man who can’t count past nine and a half.

Fourteen people were shot in fifteen hours last weekend. To date there have been 2,300 shootings in Chicago. Mayor Rahm Emanuel responds by saying this:

You can say this happened in the neighborhood of the Back of the Yards, but everybody (who) woke up this morning, or heard it last night, felt a pain of anguish, and it’s time that our criminal justice system and the laws as it relates to access to guns and the penalties for using ’em reflect the values of the people of the city of Chicago,”

rahm the dancer

2,300 shootings so far in Chicago is about 400 more than the same time last year. It sounds to me and a lot of other people like the values of the people of Chicago include shooting other people of Chicago. If you want to change that it requires action, not just words. Ah, well.

Solar Energy Is A Stupid Idea In Places Like Minnesota

But that has not stopped the Minnesota legislature. They have mandated that one and a half percernt of energy generated in the state be solar by 2020.

solar array

Why is the north country a bad place for solar power? There are many reasons – as they are learning. First is that Minnesota is far north of the equator. That means the sun is closer to the horizon even in the middle of summer. The Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn are where the sun is directly over head on the longest day in the summer for the relative hemisphere. The further away from the tropics you travel the more atmosphere the sun’s rays have to travel through to get to you or your solar panel. That same added atmosphere attenuates, or weakens, the solar power. Minnesota is a long way from the tropics.

Next is weather. For solar to be effective you need cloudless days. Even the little cumulus clouds in the image above are reducing the output of the array. Minnesota has clouds and weather.

Great River Energy in Minnesota installed a 240 kilowatt array as a demonstration project in 2014. First results are in. As some predicted they are disappointing:

GRE recorded ideal weather conditions — clear, sunny days from sun-up to sunset — just 10 percent of the time. Surprisingly, none of the perfect days came during typically sunnier, summer months.

Fair-to-partly-cloudy “partially ideal” days occurred 20 percent of the year. Cloudy and overcast conditions blocked out direct rays 70 percent of the year, with November, December and January particularly bad due to snow.

Overall, the solar facility produced power at an average of 13.6 percent of its potential capacity, generating enough electricity to supply about 30 homes.”

Too bad they didn’t wait for the results of the test before passing that mandate.


ISIS Air Superiority Fighters?

Nah, I don’t think so. So what is Russia planning to deal with in Syria?

Russia had positioned itself to launch airstrikes in Syria, but its movements suggested that its targets might be something other than ISIS, according to U.S. officials.

“We see some very sophisticated air defenses going into those airfields. We see some very sophisticated air-to-air aircraft going into these airfields. I have not seen ISIL flying any airplanes that require SA-15s or SA-22s (Russian missiles). I have not seen ISIL flying any airplanes that require sophisticated air-to-air capabilities,” Gen. Phillip Breedlove, NATO’s supreme allied commander, said on Monday.

“ISIS planning ‘nuclear tsunami’”

“The west is drastically underestimating the power of ISIS.” I’ll say. Actually, the west is not just underestimating them. We are enabling them. We are inviting them into our homes. We are doing nothing to slow or stop their spread and we are ensuring that Iran has the nuclear capabilities that the Islamic State wants.

The west, including the United States, is committing suicide.

nuclear explosion

This is from the Washington Times:

Nuclear annihilation across the globe. This is what a German reporter who successfully embedded with the Islamic State says the terror group is planning. Jurgen Todenhofer released his findings in a book titled “Inside IS – Ten Days in the Islamic State,” reports the UK’s Daily Express.

“The terrorists plan on killing several hundred million people. The west is drastically underestimating the power of ISIS. ISIS intends to get its hands on nuclear weapons,” says Todenhofer, calling the group a “nuclear tsunami preparing the largest religious cleansing in history.”


Hmmm… Trump on the International Stage

A concern about Donald Trump that has been expressed on this forum is how it is that he will deal with international affairs in general, or Vladimir Putin in particular.

Now we have an example of both.

That seems about as straightforward as anything else he says.

Teflon for The Don

This helps to explain why every time the media attacks Trump, his numbers go up.

Maybe for the first time in an election the Mainstream Media will be serving the purposes of their ideological opponent with their every effort.

“House chair: Planned Parenthood doesn’t need federal money”

Everyone has lost sight of the fact that Americans were promised that federal money would never be used to fund abortions.


WASHINGTON (AP) — In Planned Parenthood’s first congressional appearance since being embarrassed by surreptitiously recorded videos, a House committee chairman insisted Tuesday that the organization does not need federal money and spends much of it on political activities.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, made the remarks to Cecile Richards, the group’s president, as she waited to testify before his House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. “

They’re Calling It A ‘Conservative Rebellion’ Inside The GOP

That is what caused John Boehner to resign and now they’re going after Senator Mitch McConnell. Who, you ask? Roger Villere, the RNC vice chairman says the ‘GOP brand is being damaged’. The Washington Times has an article titled, “Under pressure: McConnell pushed to resign as Senate Majority Leader”.


From the article:

With John Boehner now departing as House speaker, an influential Republican Party official is now seeking the ouster of another GOP leader who has frustrated conservatives: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“McConnell needs to resign!!” Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere wrote in a Facebook posting.

Mr. Villere isn’t just any Republican. He’s the longest-serving state GOP chairman in the nation, with 12 years on the job, and is the vice chairman of the Republican National Committee, the GOP’s national governing body. He also serves on the RNC’s executive committee that makes decisions alongside Chairman Reince Priebus.”

Rush Limbaugh has some observations as well. On his website he has an article titled, “Boehner Ouster Is Beginning, Not End”. He notes that there is some power behind the move. He says it is coming from one or more big donors. He says the Iran nuclear deal is important because of the $150 Billion that they will have freed up. He says it’s likely that Boeing is pushing to sell the Iranian airline a bunch of new airliners that they will be now able to afford.

So the Iranian nuclear deal, when it comes to the debate in Washington, never really was about Iran and nuclear weapons. It was about money, economic news. It is about American corporations. And Boeing’s not the only one that want to do business with Iran. And when Iran’s got $150 billion freed up that’s been frozen, they can buy enough terrorism with that and have some left over to revamp their airline. I’m gonna have to find out what… It was Bloomberg that had this story.

It was Bloomberg News that had the story that it was Boeing and Airbus combined that wanted to make a deal with Iran on new aircraft for this dilapidated Iranian airline. Now, all the while this debate’s raging, we’re treated to story after story that the parameters of the debate center on whether or not it makes sense that Iran permitted to get a nuclear weapon. It was never what this was about. And all of us were incredulous about the Corker Bill. Why even do it?

If you’re the Senate and you oppose Obama and you oppose Iran having nukes, just insist on the treaty clause, just insist on this being a treaty. If you just do that, you solve the problem. Then you need two-thirds of it Senate to ratify it, and it’s not automatic. But the Corker Bill went into action and reversed the whole procedure for the treaty and basically turned this into nothing more than a statutory elimination or lifting of the sanctions.”

He has a lot more at the link but it makes sense that a hundred fifty billion bucks would make a lot of people’s mouths water.

There is even talk that this ‘Conservative Rebellion’ could bring down Sen. Marco Rubio because of his support for McConnell’s amnesty and Obamatrade:

Now that the Republican base has its sights set on Mitch McConnell, it could pose a serious problem for the campaign of Sen. Marco Rubio, whose two notable accomplishments are closely tied to Mitch McConnell’s agenda—namely co-authoring the Gang of Eight amnesty bill and casting the 60th and deciding vote for Obamatrade.”

“House plans special committee to probe Planned Parenthood”

The House is considering a vote this week to create a special panel to investigate Planned Parenthood — the most direct move by congressional Republicans to probe allegations of improper fetal tissue sales by the group.

The subcommittee would fall under the jurisdiction of the influential Energy and Commerce Committee. It was announced over the weekend by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), who would serve as the panel’s chairwoman.

“What people want us to do is to get to the bottom of what has transpired with Planned Parenthood and the utilization of taxpayer funds. There is frustration from our constituents,” Blackburn told POLITICO on Sunday. “The more we know, the more questions we have.”

A vote is expected this week, according to a Republican leadership aide.”
