President Obama orders flags at the White House and all federal buildings at half staff in honor the victims of the "senseless acts of violence" in Newton, Conn., on Friday.
He is scheduled to deliver remarks at 3:15 p.m. in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House.
Here is the full order on the flags:
"As a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the

How many Mexican children are among the 300 dead Mexicans shot down with F&F guns in order to push the gun control agenda? How many tears has 0bamugabe shed for them?
the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America,

On another line on this subject someone asked “Why does he need notes and a prepared statement”.
Obviously he is in ‘new territory’ here, as, up till now,he hasn’t consulted or seen fit to heed or abide to the CONSTITUTION AND/OR THE LAWS OF THE US.
‘LET NO CRISIS GO UNUSED’.
I do SO despise these people! My jaws ache from gritting my teeth!
“Of course that is why he is doing this. He is setting up the argument for more gun control. It is always about that for the left as they know that an armed populace is not conducive to government totalitarianism.”
Perfect time for Obama to tell the nation that he is postponing the expiration of the Bush tax cuts for the middle class until he can ensure that guns will be made illegal to have in America.
Then he will go on vacation.
The Buffoon in Chief sees an opportunity to campaign AGAIN.
Meanwhile, Obama will give BILLIONS for rockets
to murder children in Israel and other countries
by his Moslems and terrorists, whom
he weaponizes and protects.
Crocodile Tears, that's what we see from this so called "American" "leader".
I have no reason not to believe this pResident was not somehow directly or indirectly behind the mass murders that occurred today or all the others that have happened under his pResidency.
Sorry if this sounds political, my heart goes out to all those hurt physically and emotionally and those killed but this man in the White House has no credibility with me when it comes to gun violence, the trend that's been going on and the fact that he walked thousands of weapons into Mexico to create deaths to justify a ban on the US Constitution.
The only tears Obama sheds today are tears of joy.
Mrs p6 came home and turned on the tv. It had been left on CBS. The woman anchor was waxing about ho BO was wiping away tears and said he was familiar with these kinds of acts of violence AFTER HIS DECADES OF WORK IN LAW ENFORCEMENT !
STOP IT! STOP THE STUPID! STOP IT NOW!
You *know* where they’re headed with this and you suspect that they’re actively involved.
Say that out loud and people start throwing rolls of tinfoil at you.
IMO, *nothing* exists outside the realm of possibility anymore.
AMEN! So true!
R U Kidding? He really said that? What years was he ever in law enforcement?
No. Not anymore. And tinfoil is my middle name.
Was the flag lowered to half-staff for Ambassador Stevens and the 3 others Zippy murdered? I know Zippy's flash mobs burned a few that day at other embassies.
Then you and I will get along famously...:)
“What years was he ever in law enforcement?”
Maybe he shot some dogs and got the two confused.
Hannity just said hussein was visibly upset. Puleeze. Tears of joy, indeed. He's going to play this for all he can. It won't stop at gun control but he'll go major Big Brother into our privacy. If the guy had a facebook or even a computer, that'll mean more monitoring of cyber space. The guy drove a car so there's all the more reason for invasive black boxes. The guy drove across state lines, so where were his entry papers? Someone buzzed him inside the school so there's an excuse to plant TSA types at every school to grope our 5 year olds. Good bye, America. Hello, al Amerika.
We never got the truth about the VA Tech shooting even though ismail ax was written in RED on his damn arm, and we are never gonna get the truth about loughner spouting islamic crap before he went spaz...or the community center shooter whose last contacts were muslims who ‘understood his problems’. So I suspect we will never know what happened here either.
Jared Lee Loughner (Tucson,AZ) - 23 yo white male.
Adam Lanza (Newtown, CT) - 20 yo white male
James Eagan Holmes (Aurora, CO) - 24 yo white male.
Jacob Tyler Roberts (Oregon mall) - 22 yo white male
Eric David Harris (Colulumbine, CO) - 19 yo white male
Dylan Bennet Klebold (Columbine, CO) - 17 yo white male
Anyone detect a pattern here? It’s time to check these shooters’ medical histories for psychotropic drugs.
I have a good guess.
