I've already theorized elsewhere that Miriam Carey is the first casualty of the shutdown, caught in the crossfire between trigger-happy law enforcement and the family dog riding in the passenger seat of her car.

High capacity box of kitchen matches involved. Bright red ignition points (highly volatile) on each one. Striker plate on side of box (any of these could have been instantly fired up, one after the other!

Also, no safety on devices. Flame was open with no fire guard once devices are set off.

Clint Eastwood comes to mind, in one of the Dirty Harry flicks, "The Dead Pool." Posing undercover as a TV news cameraman, to a nutcase threatening to set himself on fire to get on the news: "Oh, we'll break out the weenies and the marshmallows, but we ain't gonna be filming you for the 11 o'clock news."

Obama needs to be impeached. Soon.

I was thinking that. I guess we should get used to this as some just finally give up and send the only message they can.


Reporter: Sen. Reid, shouldn't we put this guy out immediately?

Sen. Reid: Why would we want to do that?

Holy cats! No kidding! And there's not even a waiting period to buy a box of kitchen matches. Scary.

I'll bet that if a true honest poll could be taken of the American people, especially among those who are productive (i.e., not dependents on government) folks going about their business making livings, Obama is held in pretty low regard.

Impeachment right now would probably go over real good with them, in spite of how the MSM reported it. It's an illusion, a balsa wood bridge on a movie set. Looks real until reality hits it in the form of a train. Most of America is ticked off -- it is inevitable when a minority attempts to seize power of a majority. The left cheats to win elections and the MSM crafts the illusion that everybody else but you in America doesn't veer right. So when fake voters and harvested voters and illegal voters and dead voters push elections over the edge so these leftists win, Americans are primed to accept it as legit.

Then they go around angry at all their fellow Americans for being stupid enough to elect this idiot and all these clowns, when the truth is ... a whole helluva lot of Americans are on the same page, if not in the same political party. At a time when both parties are pretty despised by their own rank and file.

Pray for America!

Reports coming in now that the man was smoking an electronic cigarette, the control of which may have been taken over by an unknown second party.

Security camera footage shows a sudden fireball in the vicinity of the smoker's head, setting fire to the man causing him to run down the mall yelling "Allahu Obama" before collapsing on the grass.

Then the helicopter came.
