About San Bernardino

One – the immediate politicization of any tragedy involving guns, facts or no facts:

Just when we think that politics can’t sink any lower, President Obama once again proves us wrong by politicizing the tragedy in San Bernardino before the facts were even known. What we do know is that the American people are heartbroken by these horrific crimes — and despite what the president would have us believe — America’s law-abiding gun owners are heartbroken by these horrific crimes as well. At the same time, we are sick and tired of this president suggesting the men and women of the National Rifle Association are somehow to blame.

Why, you ask? Well because this supposed “leader” of ours is all about politics and agendas. He’s already decided what is “best” for the rest of us whether or not the actual fact match the narrative or not.

Two, which is related to One.  The hypocrisy and cowardice of the left.  Radical Islam has struck more than once here in the US the and cowards won’t acknowledge it or face it.  But they will vilify and defame those who won’t strike back and blame them for the problem such as Christians, the NRA, and the Right in general.  God help you if you believe in the 2nd Amendment.

Screen-Shot-2015-12-03-at-2.20.24-PMYes I know Jon Gabriel and yes I know he’s being totally sarcastic.  I also know he makes the point perfectly.  By the way, did you see where Bloomberg and MSNBC tweeted that the shooting was only “blocks away from a Planned Parenthood” facility.  See “One” above.  Think narrative construction.

Three – we now have the Attorney General of the United States promising to take action against US citizens if she considers their rhetoric to be anti-Muslim and “edges” towards violence:

Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Thursday warned that the Justice Department could take aggressive action against people whose anti-Muslim rhetoric “edges towards violence” and told the Muslim community that “we stand with you in this.”

Speaking at Muslim Advocate’s 10th anniversary dinner, Lynch said since the terrorist attacks in Paris last month, she is increasingly concerned with the “incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric … that fear is my greatest fear.”

Who will be the arbiter?  And, why selective treatment?  See “Two” above.  They won’t face the real enemy and they want to chill speech pretending it is anti-Muslim rhetoric that is the problem, not Radical Islamists.

These three things are consistent in every shooting that involved radical muslims.  One, the attempt to initially frame it so that the right is the problem.  Then to frame it as if it was just another “mass shooting” – you know, “workplace violence.”  The cause: guns, not followers of a 7th century death cult.  Two, deny, deny, deny and try to shift the blame.  Don’t face the reality of the problem.  “ISIS is contained”. Instead of facing the problem and addressing it, Mr. Obama’s answer is to contemplate stricter gun laws by executive order that will do nothing to stop what happened in CA.  But the left believes that the criminals and killers out there will be done … even though in California had every law Obama want’s nationally in place and supposedly functioning and the Islamic Radicals still had the banned weapons.  Third, the erosion of freedom.  Now we have the AG saying she’ll decide what “edges” toward violent rhetoric and will apparently act unilaterally to arrest the “perpetrator”.  However rhetoric “edging” toward violence against any other non-protected group?

Meh!

  • Frankly, I don’t fear Attorney General Loretta Lynch or the Justice Department.
    They may be able to drive you into bankruptcy, but I don’t think they could cut their way out of a pre-shredded paper bag.
    What is most distressing is that they are part of the problem, not the solution.

  • “We’re at the point where these issues have come together really like never before in law enforcement thought and in our nation’s history and it gives us a wonderful opportunity and a wonderful moment to really make significant change,” said Lynch.

    If this was a private sector CEO making these statements, we all know that at least a handful of employees would be heading for the door with their belongings in hand.
    But this is the federal government where failure is rewarded with bonuses and bigger budgets .. where nobody ever gets fired.

  • Clinton also wants to crack down on terrorism by prohibiting people on the no-fly list from buying guns.

    Back in August, we did an investigation — the inspector General did — of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security.Congressman Stephen F. Lynch (D-Boston)

    • How about prohibiting people on no-fly lists from obtaining or retaining visas or green cards or citizenship. There’s a novel idea.

  • “If you are too dangerous to fly in America, you are too dangerous to buy a gun in America.”

    Some thoughts:

    1. If you’re determined to obtain guns to commit terrorist acts…which are per force HIGHLY illegal…you aren’t worried about obtaining guns “legally”.

    2. IF there were a functioning criminal legal system in America, Hellary Clinton could not fly anywhere, or EVER buy a gun. She would be a caged bird, housed in a Federal pen.

    3. The murderous volunteer pirates of San Berdoo were quite willing to commit an entire catalog of crimes, not one of which deterred them from their plan and purpose, which was itself as illegal as anything gets in the U.S.

  • It’s called “evil,” and it tries very hard to look normal. Indeed, radical Islam exhibits all of the traits of evil. As psychiatrist Scott Peck’s book, “People of the Lie” suggests (a terrific book that I highly recommend), evil is always convinced that it is “right” or “righteous” or “good” and works hard to maintain that appearance. It projects evil onto others (scapegoating). It is strong-willed, controlling and intolerant. And it hides it motives by confusing others with lies and “magical thinking” (think 72 virgins for Allah’s martyrs).
    —Elizabeth Price Foley on InstaPundit

    Collectivism and Jihadism are two peas in the evil pod. “Magic thinking”, as demonstrated throughout the Barracula regime, will get LOTS of people killed.

    We’ve only just begun to see that, world-wide.

    Lynch should be impeached.

  • I am just scratching my head, wondering, “Does Lynch think it is the AG job to create new rules and laws or to enforce exiting ones?” and “Why doesn’t anyone tell her?”
