    Cheney Says U.S. Should Restart Enhanced Interrogation Programs Cheney Says U.S. Should Restart Enhanced Interrogation Programs Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Fox Business Thursday that he thinks the CIA should restart and improve on post 9/11-era enhanced interrogation programs. “If it were my call, I would not discontinue those programs. I'd have them active and ready to go,” he said. “And I'd go back and study them and learn." Cheney commented on the matter following a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Wednesday in which Trump’s nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, said she would not have the CIA return to...
  • "Gun violence?" How many unarmed citizens were murdered by government in modern times?

    <p>The number of unarmed citizens (262,000,000*) slaughtered by tyrannical (mostly leftist, Marxist, fascist) governments during the 20th century would come pretty close to wiping out the entire U.S. population.</p> <p>Our founders understood the danger of runaway government power and tyranny, thus the constitution guaranteeing our God-given liberty and severely restricting the powers of government. And they included the 2nd amendment for good reason. An armed citizenry guarantees it stays that way.</p>

    It seems the mass murderer in Florida did not use magazines of a capacity over 10 rounds. This presents a minor difficulty for those who want to ban magazines over 10 rounds.From miamiherald.com: The “weapon and bullets were not high quality and were breaking apart,” one of the legislators, state Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, told the Herald.Cruz went in with only 10-round magazines because larger clips would not fit in his duffel bag, Book said. Given the general ignorance of reporters on firearms technology, and of  Democrats in general, I would not rely on this information until we have...

    In one of the leaked photographs from the Mandalay Bay shooter's suite, there is a revolver that he apparently committed suicide with. From page 30 of the January 18, 2018,  initial report of the lvmpd.com: Team 2 encountered Paddock lying on the floor on his back. A small frame revolver was observed on the ground above Paddock’s head. Apparent blood was located on the revolver and a pool of blood had formed around Paddocks head. The officers believed Paddock had a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The large window at Paddock’s feet was broken out and the curtain was blowing into...
  • Broward County State Attorney Has Dozens Of Investigations Of Sheriff’s Office

    The Broward County Sheriff’s Office is a mess. While I have no doubt there are good, capable deputies within the department, they’re marred by being in the same department with Sheriff Scott Israel. The embattled sheriff’s woes began with the Parkland shooting but only seem to grow, probably in part due to his vocal stance on gun control in the immediate aftermath now looking like a case of wagging the dog. The latest is the sheer number of investigations by the Broward State Attorney’s office into the sheriff’s department. There is a pile of them. Since 2012, there have been...

Sam Zeif in video from the presidential listening session, February 21, 2018: In Australia there was a shooting at a school in 1999.   I am reminded of the scene from Animal House, where Bluto exclaims: Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? and a listener...
  • Guess which one percent of the population committed 33% of the mass shootings in the last decade?

    American Thinker ^ | 02/26/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    Isn’t it peculiar that nobody in the media seems to mention this? Daniel Greenfield writes: In the last decade, there were only 10 major mass shootings where the death toll went into the double digits. Three of those were carried out by Muslim terrorists. That’s all the more remarkable since Muslims make up less than 1% of the United States population, but account for 33% of major mass shootings. Proportional to their representation in the population, Muslims are responsible for far more mass shootings than Americans. The trend is worrisome. Since 2015, not a single year has passed without...
  • Why Do Clergy Advocate More Gun Control Instead of More Religion?

    In the aftermath of another school campus mass murder by a deranged individual, there were a myriad of reactions as people tried to come to grips with why this continues to happen. Many of the reactions are expected -- especially those speaking of the need for greater controls over the acquisition of guns. One reaction I don’t understand is why clergy are not calling for more religion instead of more gun control. By now you know that (to their credit) the FBI stated they did not act on a tip received on the Parkland, Fla., murderer that could have potentially...

    Clare Schexnyder wants students and teachers across the country to leave their classrooms together, to protest every child and educator who has been killed in a school shooting and promote gun control.And the Georgia mother is getting much press about her National School Walkout as well as swelling support from all corners of the country. She is getting help from the organizers of the Women’s March too.Certainly a red flag. But curiously when reporters and Schexnyder discuss the activist’s plans and background they seem to always omit the fact she worked nearly two decades at CNN as a senior...

    A foreseeable act of mass murder and terrorism just wiped out 17 innocent lives and ripped apart countless families. Besides the obvious psychopathic killer-Cruz, who should be held accountable for their actions and gross malfeasance? In descending order of the most current events, take your pick(s): 1. The FBI- Notified twice they had a ticking time bomb in the shell of a man, ready to detonate at any moment. They had been made aware of his name, address, intent to kill- specifically at a school, that he had the means to kill masses, and that he was brazenly proud and...

    In the aftermath of Wednesday's deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, politicians and pundits alike are using the tragedy as an opportunity to push for gun control legislation and demonize anyone who opposes such laws as evil, inhuman monsters solely motivated by NRA lobbying dollars. Given the immediate climate of scaremongering, it's worth pointing out that to this day, the deadliest school massacre in United States history was committed not with a gun, but a bomb.On May 18th, 1927, the last day of classes at the only school in the small town of Bath, Michigan was interrupted by a deadly...

LaSata of the Rockledge Police Department, made clear the intervention of the armed citizens was responsible for stopping the murderer.  Two employees were shot, one killed, in the parking lot. Then two armed employees intervened. From the transcript of this video from wesh.com: Matt Lupoli, reporter:Another employee, a manager, came out with a gun of his own and shot and wounded Baily. That man has not been named, but police say he saved several...

    The removal of the Jews from the Arab world has been all but ignored, says Tom Gross It is not surprising, given the sheer scale of the Holocaust and its sadism, that it has dominated contemporary discourse among Jews and others. But, while the extermination of European Jews has rightfully (though belatedly) generated a great deal of study and research, the removal of the Jews from the Arab world has been all but ignored. This ignorance extends to policy-makers at the highest level. Some journalists and politicians I have spoken to have expressed surprise when I even mentioned that Jews...

    CORNING, Calif. - Witnesses tell a chilling account of two gunman who opened fire at Rancho Tehama Elementary School near Corning Tuesday morning. Coy Ferreira, whose daughter is a kindergarten student, was dropping his daughter off for class just before 8 a.m. when he heard what sounded like a firecracker. A school secretary ran out and yelled for the kids to get in the classrooms because someone was shooting at the school. Ferreira said he ran into a classroom with 14 students. He said the series of shots came through the classroom windows, hitting one student. Ferreria said a young...

    The Bolshevik plague that began in Russia was the greatest catastrophe in human history.Armed Bolsheviks seized the Winter Palace in Petrograd—now St. Petersburg—100 years ago this week and arrested ministers of Russia’s provisional government. They set in motion a chain of events that would kill millions and inflict a near-fatal wound on Western civilization. The revolutionaries’ capture of train stations, post offices and telegraphs took place as the city slept and resembled a changing of the guard. But when residents of the Russian capital awoke, they found they were living in a different universe.Although the Bolsheviks called for the abolition...

    Every time a mass shooting occurs–either carried out or attempted–there is one of two outcomes. If the perpetrator is non-white, then it disappears from view. If the perpetrator is white, then it is used to indicted whites as being more violent than any other group. For instance, in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting this became the talk of the internet: .. We need not focus on the fact that the author is a D-list actor with no life experience outside the world make believe to recognize the raw bigotry and, dare I say, self-hatred involved in this tweet....

    One of the puzzles about the mass murderer in Las Vegas is the source of his money. His brother characterizes him as "very wealthy" and that "$100,000 is no big deal". His real estate holdings holdings have been estimated as worth several millions of dollars. He paid cash for his latest real estate, and gambled up to a million dollars a year, according to a real estate agent who dealt with him. From the dailymail.co.uk: The 64-year-old, who opened fire slaughtering 58 people at a country music festival at the weekend, bought his 2,000 sq ft home in Mesquite,...

    Deinstitutionalization: How Does It Affect You Today? What Is the Real Cause of Mass Shootings Today? By Kimberly Amadeo Updated July 11, 2017 Definition: Deinstitutionalization is a government policy that moved mental health patients out of state-run "insane asylums" into federally funded community mental health centers. It began in the 1960s as a way to improve treatment of the mentally ill while also cutting government budgets. In 1955, the number peaked at 558,000 patients or 0.03 percent of the population. If the same percentage of the population were institutionalized today, that would be 750,000 mentally ill people. That's more than...
