    Once again we have witnessed the divider in chief using a ‘serious crisis’ to pit people against each other instead of trying to bring them together. ‘President’ Obama could have reacted to the recent events by not slyly mentioning how he plans on using it once again to incrementally destroying liberty. Rather than uniting the country and healing it’s wounds, we had the ‘President’ using mass murder as just another opportunity to score political points for his socialist national agenda. This why ‘President’ Obama will be considered THE WORST, bar none. Compare this ‘President’ to those of the past who...

    Saying it was time to “face hard truths about race, violence, guns and division,” Hillary Rodham Clinton called for action Thursday in response to the shooting that killed nine worshipers at a historic black church in Charleston, S.C. [Snip] “How many innocent people in our country, from little children to church members to movie theater attendees, how many people do we need to see cut down before we act?” she asked. She did not, however, offer any specific plan for reducing gun violence. [Snip] She [also] denounced anti-immigrant rhetoric, which she called "divisive," and mused about the nature of hatred...

    According to a 2013 Pew Research study, 37 percent of households had an adult who owned a gun — 24 percent said they owned a gun, and 13 percent said someone else in their household did. There are about 319 million people in the United States, so that means there are about 118 milion gun owners in this nation. Mother Jones reports there have been 69 mass shootings in the last 30 years. The Washington Post says, A Congressional Research Service report published in 2013 counted 78 incidents over roughly the same period, in which 547 were killed. That means,...

    Please pray for those who have lost their lives in Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church, for their families and friends, and for their entire community. Our brothers and sisters in Christ are suffering, and need our prayers and support. Let’s start by spreading love rather than division. With that said, if I had to give one piece of advice to any politician, it would be that any argument starting off with “We don’t have all the facts” is one that should probably remain unspoken. Another piece of advice would be that gathering the relevant facts before speaking will avoid embarrassments like...

    CNN ^ | June 18, 2015 | James Garbarino
    (CNN)—It looks like it has happened again. A young male has allegedly killed. In this case it is nine people at a church in South Carolina. Anyone who is paying attention hears the news and thinks, "Here we go again." But why? After spending 20 years interviewing killers as a psychological expert witness in murder cases I have some thoughts about this. Males are disproportionately over-represented in the ranks of America's killers -- about 90%, in fact. Why is that? Some of it appears to lie in the biological vulnerability of males. About 30% of males (versus 9% of females)...

    Every time an American community suffers a tragedy involving a firearm, the anti-gun crowd unveils itself in full tribal dress. Wednesday night, a 21-year-old sandy blonde-haired white man with blue jeans and Timberland boots walked into a historically black church in Charleston, S.C. and killed 9 people.  That’s a horrible, murderous act, made worse by the fact that the man is still at large. The New York Times reported S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s statement about the tragedy. "While we do not yet know all of the details, we do know that we’ll never understand what motivates anyone to enter one...
