    Accused Arizona shooter Jared Loughner took photographs of himself wearing nothing but a red G-string and holding a Glock 9 mm gun before going on a rampage that injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and killed six others. The kinky photos were turned over to Tuscon cops by Walgreens staffers just days after Loughner, 22, dropped them off to be developed before Saturday's attack, The New York Times reported today on its website.
  • Facing Challenge, Obama Returns to Unity Theme (Gov. Brewer Receives 'Boos' at Pep Rally)

    TUCSON — When President Obama took the stage here Wednesday to address a community — and a nation — traumatized by Saturday’s killings, it invited comparisons to President George W. Bush’s speech to the nation after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and the memorial service President Bill Clinton led after the bombing of a federal office building killed 168 people in Oklahoma City in 1995 . . . -snip- Even as it began, some conservative commentators were posting comments criticizing the memorial service for being overly partisan and more like a pep rally, and there were some boos in...
  • Newsflash for the Left: Your Lies Aren’t Working

    The deep, unbridgeable spiritual and ideological divide in our country has been on glaring display even more than usual since last Saturday’s horrific, murderous attack in Tucson by an evil young man—yes, Virginia, evil people do exist. Predictably, the lying Left went into full attack mode before the dead and wounded were scarcely off the sidewalk. Instead of waiting to learn the name of the shooter, they barreled ahead determined to fix the blame for the shooting on conservatives. We’re not going to let the Left get away with it this time. There is one—and only one—person to blame for...

    We've heard that Jared did not listen to the radio or watch TV. Where did he plug in to find his favorite books, movies and conspiracies? Can we blame the internet in general? Or do we blame the vast splintered paranoid liberal left wing that occupies more of the internet than anything else? He obviously knew how post to YouTube and use social media - and links between and to his pages were found to exist before the shooting. Can We Blame The Internet? What else can we blame?

    suntimes Don’t let shooter kill our rights Jacob Sullum Jan 12, 2011 02:35AM Jared Lee Loughner, the man accused of shooting 20 people outside a Tucson, Ariz., grocery store on Saturday, probably will never get a chance to create the “new money system” he discusses in one of his rambling YouTube videos. But he can still have an important effect on public policy — if we let him. After the shocking attack — which killed six people, including 9-year-old Christina Green, and wounded 14, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) — there was no shortage of knee-jerk proposals for preventing...

  • Rush: AZ Shooter Has ‘Full Support’ of Democratic Party

    What’s behind the infamous mugshot smirk of accused killer Jared Lee Loughner?

    Bill Maher says Glenn Beck’s nutty and like the Giffords shooter, Jared Loughner. It is now open season beyond the shadow of a doubt on all conservatives, at least from the standpoint of many liberals. Each day after the Gabrielle Giffords shooting has brought with it increasingly shocking defamation by liberals looking to turn the murderous tragedy of Giffords’ shooting into a poorly calculated political opportunity. The latest shameless liberal to jump on the desperate attack-conservatives bandwagon is Bill Maher. He is using guilt-by-association to drag Beck’s name through the mud by essentially saying that Beck is exactly like Loughner....

    In the six plus years that I have been posting on FreeRepublic, I have posted only 48 threads. This will be the first that is solely my own thoughts and composition. As I have scanned the headlines and read various articles over the last couple of days I have found myself wishing that I had the ear of the nation, and a bully pulpit, just for a moment or two. I am posting now, not to draw attention to myself, but rather to what I think is a crucial idea in responding to a situation like the one in Arizona....

    Federal charges have been filed against Jared Lee Loughner, the suspected gunman in a shooting rampage at a Safeway supermarket in Arizona that left six dead and 13 wounded, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The five-count criminal complaint includes an attempt to kill a member of Congress, two counts of murder in the first degree and two counts of attempted murder. FBI Director Robert Mueller said on Sunday that Loughner, 22, may face additional charges under the domestic terrorism statute. "This was an attack not only against dedicated public servants, but against our citizens," he said.

    Giffords Shooter Jared Loughner Used a Glock 19 Posted on January 8, 2011 by Robert Farago The Washington Post is reporting that TTAG’s Brad Kozak was right to say the media was wrong when they rushed to report that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords shooter Jared Loughner used an “automatic rifle” to carry-out his heinous crime. As Brad and I discussed, mortality is limited when you spray a large group of people with a full-auto rifle. Accuracy is difficult as people tend to hit the deck pretty damn quick. Look at the often amazing lack of lethality of drive-by shootings. Loughner had...
  • Did "Conscious Dreaming" Cause a Psychotic Break? ("Conscience dreams were a great study" -Loughner)

    Booklist review of "Conscious Dreaming: A Spiritual Path for Everyday Life," by Robert Moss, on This is more and better than just a book about how to remember and understand dreams, although it is that kind of book and as good as any such recently published. Moss covers all the expected terrain, from how to train the mind to recall its nightly narratives, through how to unravel meaning from them, to how to start and sustain a dream group. But his book excels because he extends its purview to include shamanic dreaming, dreams of dead loved ones, healing dreams,...

    Within hours of the attack on Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords, liberal bloggers, pundits, and even politicians raced to pin responsibility on the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and the general “climate of hate” produced by opposition to President Obama’s agenda. Much was made of Republicans and Tea Party activists who “targeted” Giffords for defeat in the midterm elections. This kind of rhetoric and imagery has been used constantly by both parties for many years. There will probably be a self-imposed ban on it, by all politicians, in the wake of this tragedy. No great loss...

    A classmate of the man accused of shooting Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords this morning describes him as "left wing" and a "pot head" in a series of posts on Twitter this afternoon. Caitie Parker did not immediately respond to our request for an interview, but her "tweets" in the hours after the shooting paint a picture of Jared Loughner as a substance-abusing loner who had met Giffords before the shooting. She says, Loughner described the congresswoman as "stupid and unintelligent." We've confirmed that Parker and Loughner went to school together at Mountain View High School in Tucson and that both attended...

    Florida school shooter largely influenced by liberal and socialist beliefs. Clay Duke, the unemployed and apparently bipolar anarchist who shot up a Panama City, Florida, school board on Tuesday openly admired many ideas that are popular among liberals and socialists. While some have alleged that he was really mentally ill (he was actually on his medication, so there goes that excuse for his personal actions right there) or have even tried to blame inanimate objects like the Obama-economy with all its high unemployment for his destructive action, if you look at all the evidence of what shaped Duke’s thinking, it...

    A TODDLER was among four people killed when a woman armed with a shotgun went on a rampage before being shot dead by police in Germany. A police officer was also seriously wounded in the final shootout with the woman, which took place at the Saint Elizabeth hospital in the town of Loerrach overnight. "Towards 1600 GMT, firefighters were called out to an explosion followed by a fire in an apartment situated in a street near the hospital,'' Eugen Wissler, a spokesman for the Loerrach police told AFP. "As they arrived, they heard gunfire coming from the building. They then...
