The media has been reporting that the Oregon school shooter’s father has been speaking about the need for stricter gun control measures. In a recent interview with media, he said (referring to his son),”How on earth could he compile 13 guns? How can that happen? They talk about gun laws, they talk about gun control. Every time something like this happens, they talk about it, and nothing is done.
How about a little brutal TRUTH and HONESTY:
Bobby Jindal, a republican presidential candidate writes:
This killer’s father is now lecturing us on the need for gun control and he says he has no idea how or where his son got the guns. Of course he doesn’t know. You know why he doesn’t know? Because he is not, and never has been in his son’s life. He’s a complete failure as a father, he should be embarrassed to even show his face in public. He is the problem here.
If we as a nation are serious about stopping these kinds of horrific crimes, we must address the root causes of the problem … and not simply ban the tool used. Pipe bombs are already illegal and banned but several of these mass killers have used or attempted to use them as well. There were pipe bombs at Columbine! Cain slew his brother Able with a rock! Are we going to ban rocks, knives, sticks and sharpened pencils? Our society is devolving into a cesspool of decay. We truly are seeing the breakdown of the family, the complete abdication of fathers, the devaluation of human life and the glorification of evil.
The father also …
brags that he has never held a gun in his life and that he had no idea that his son had any guns? Why didn’t he know? Because he failed to raise his son. He should be ashamed of himself , and he owes us all an apology. When he was asked what his relationship was with his son, he said he hadn’t seen him in a while because he lived with his mother. Case Closed.
We as Americans no longer raise our children. We just have them. Far too many “parents” (and I use the term loosely) are not teaching their children about personal responsibility, the value of human life, self-respect, social skills, the greater good. Other human beings are seen by many of these kids as nothing more than CGI figures in the violent video games they play; video games where other human beings are simply targets for killing … killed by kids doped up on pills to keep them docile in the classroom. And, when these kids finally act out … those with an agenda rush to blame a tool … an inanimate object. Much easier than looking at the real problem which is this …. when our culture decays and we rot our children’s minds with garbage … these are the results we reap!
And Obama … he simply jumps behind a podium and politicizes it, seizing on the emotional distress he needs to push toward disarming all law-abiding Americans who do not accept his tyrannical version of hope and change. Because like Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro and others … Obama knows a disarmed society is a compliant society.
Chris Harper-Mercer, the Roseburg, Oregon gunman, was shot to death in a shootout with Roseburg police so we cannot ask him what would cause him to do what he did, but his social media activities can help give us a clue as to what motivated this young man to commit such a heinous act.
It has been reported that among the details authorities have allegedly found was one detail the left-wing media (and President Barack Obama) doesn’t want the public to know. Chris Harper-Mercer had a MySpace account on which he was friends with an apparent Islamic terror supporter.
The Daily Beast has reported that Harper-Mercer’s MySpace account on the now mostly defunct social media site included a contact, Mahmoud Ali Ehsani. Ehsani had pictures of “Mujahedeen” from around the world on his account, as well as a post in which he wrote “kill the Jews.”
Harper-Mercer’s MySpace page reportedly contained praise for terrorists as well. However, his terrorist heroes were admittedly from different ideology … his page had material glorifying members of the Irish Republican Army.
A blog linked to Harper-Mercer also contained praise for Roanoke shooter Vester Lee Flanagan, saying that people “like him have nothing left to live for.” Harper-Mercer is quoted as saying:
On an interesting note, I have noticed that so many people like him are all alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are.
A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone. His face splashed across every screen, his name across the lips of every person on the planet, all in the course of one day. Seems the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight.”
The Washington Times has reported that Harper-Mercer’s shooting should be classified as a hate crime, because he specifically targeted Christians during his rampage.
Stacey Boylan, the mother of one of the witnesses to the shooting, told reporters that he asked potential victims whether or not they were Christian. He would have them stand up and then he would reply, “Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second.” And then he would shoot and killed them.
It goes without saying that President Obama mentioned little or none of this in his speech on the matter last night, choosing to instead blame the entire incident on guns. His lapdog press, as would be expected, went right along with him and refused to report anything that contradicted Obama’s spin … especially the suspect’s possible link to a supporter of Islamic terrorism.
I really do miss the days when you could say the press was objective, impartial and you could believe what they reported.
It’s official! According to Dennis Miller, a conservative leaning American stand-up comedian and political commentator, “Names now hurt us more than sticks and stones.” It’s the dawn of a new age, the age of the oh-so-easily offended!
These mindless PC zombies are an extremely aggravating breed with very little useful purpose on the planet that I can see … I mean other than destroying our country and our culture. They are mindless drones who only know one thing … what offends them. A prime example are to two reporters who heckled Donald Trump and Jeb Bush for using the term “anchor babies” on separate occasions. It seems neither reporter could come up with a viable alternative for the term, but both were so obviously offended by the term that I thought I could even hear their bones breaking!
It is odd that these folks are so often the ones lecturing to us about the utmost importance of “freedom of speech,” but yet they’re the first to shoot down the opinions of anyone brave enough to express a point of view that isn’t identical to theirs. It’s the height of hypocrisy to yell stridently about freedom of speech and then ruthlessly attack anyone who say anything you disagree with or don’t want to hear.
I think these folks need a little mental toughness instilled in them. Perhaps we should capture them, tie them to a chair and force them to repeatedly watch Grand Torino until they see the error of their ways. Just saying!
We have devolved into the most whiniest, most thin-skinned, easily-offended society in history! Americans have become a nation of cry-babies! We have developed a unlimited capacity for being offended and, it has become our national pastime.
For me, real immigration reform does put the needs of the American people first. It does seem we are the only country in the world whose immigration system puts the needs of other nations ahead of our own. I agree with Donald Trump that this must change.
Here are my three core principles for real immigration reform:
- A sovereign nation must control its borders.
We must stop both the flow of illegal immigrants across our borders and stop those entering with student Visas, etc. from staying beyond the period allowed under their visa. We must control our southern border. This may include a wall for many sections of the border and perhaps electronic monitoring or other sensors for other sections of the border. We must increase the number of border patrol agents and allow them to do their job correctly while working in concert with local law enforcement agencies. Illegal aliens with criminal records should be immediately deported and not allowed back into the country. Illegal aliens with clean records (other than breaking our immigration laws) who are working and contributing members of their communities should be given a path to citizenship that includes making restitution for breaking our immigration laws (perhaps a fine, community service, or military service) and then be allowed to apply for legal status. They should not be placed in front of those who are currently going through the legal immigration process. Sanctuary cites should lose all funding from federal and state governments.
- We are a nation of laws.
All laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced by the executive branch. The president and other law enforcement agencies do not get to pick and choose which laws they will enforce. Reform the current immigration system to allow for more efficient legal immigration.
- The federal government exists to protect the rights of its citizens.
Any immigration reform plan must protect and improve the jobs, wages and security of all American citizens and legal immigrants.
FAQS: The cost of not building a wall
- Leaders in Mexico and other Latin American countries have been taking advantage of the United States by using illegal immigration to export the crime and poverty in their own country. The cost to the American taxpayer has been burdensome. U.S. taxpayers have been forced to pick up billions in healthcare costs, housing costs, education costs, welfare costs, etc. The effects on jobseekers have also been disastrous, and black and Hispanic Americans have been especially harmed.
- The impact in terms of crime has indeed been tragic. Recent headlines have covered cases of criminals who crossed our border illegally only to go on to commit horrific crimes against Americans. Most recently, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, with a long arrest record, is charged with breaking into a 64 year-old women’s home, crushing her skull and eye sockets with a hammer, raping her, and murdering her. The “blood trail” does indeed lead straight back to Washington, DC and Barack Obama.
- In 2011, the Government Accountability Office determined that there were 3 million arrests attached to the incarcerated alien population, including tens of thousands of violent beatings, rapes and murders (This figure is from the Obama administration’s own GAO).
- Mexico makes billions on our bad trade deals and from the billions of dollars in remittances sent from illegal immigrants in the United States back to Mexico ($22 billion in 2013 alone).
A comment was aimed at me the other day beginning with the words, “You republicans …….!” Some people just do not get it at all. It is no longer about Republican versus Democrat. It is about the destruction of America!
I am not a Republican although I was for a period of time. The Republican Party has let me down too many times now. Can you tell me what the Republican Party stands for? I can! It stands for nothing. They make promises to constituents to get elected and then cave on those same issues at the slightest pressure from the White House, the Democrats, or the press. And, they do this despite having been given a majority in both Houses of Congress by the voters. So either they suffer from completely deflated balls or they are RINOS. It really doesn’t matter at this point. I know there are a few truly conservative Republicans trying to do something to protect Americans but they are hamstrung and attacked by their own party. This is why I am no longer a Republican.
I can certainly see what the Democratic Party stands for today. It is obvious if you watch the news. The current Democratic Party stands for Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts, making terrible deals with our enemies while abandoning our allies, giving illegal aliens free rein to steal from, rape and murder American citizens. You think Trump is wrong? He may not be the candidate of choice for me, but at least he speaks the truth. The murder of Kathryn Steinle on the Embarcadero in San Francisco by an illegal alien is only the most recent example of a crime committed by an illegal alien. Laura Wilkerson’s 18-year-old son was brutally tortured and murdered by a classmate he had offered a ride home. The classmate would have been one of Obama’s “Dreamers.”
During testimony before the Congressional Judiciary Committee by parents of victims and Texas State Officials, it was revealed that illegal aliens have been involved in thousands of crimes in Texas alone, including nearly 3,000 homicides. According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, illegal aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults. The report describes an alien crime wave of staggering proportions exacerbated by federal officials unwilling to enforce immigration laws. The Texas DPS report says well over 100,000 individual criminal aliens have been booked into Texas jails.
Let’s see. In light of this illegal alien crime wave and increasing terrorist attacks on American soil, the Democratic Party stands for disarming law-abiding American citizens. They also stand for ignoring the rule of law and dismantling or circumventing the U.S. Constitution, dismantling our military, destroying our economy while fudging unemployment numbers, and subjecting U.S. Citizens to being ruled by the United Nations.
As a friend of mine posted:
Can we stop calling those on the far left liberals and progressives? Nice sounding terms but their actual political platform is Statism and Totalitarianism. Obsessed with “correct thought” and “Correct speech”, [and] the sacrifice of individual choice to ideological “experts”. In no way is this thinking liberal or progressive. It is very regressive, the exact same policies were the foundation of Statist and Totalitarian regimes from Mao to Stalin, Mussolini and Hitler. Identity politics, class warfare, racial politics, statistical law making, central planning, there is no correlation between these ideas and classical liberalism, or any of the founding documents of this country. These factors were the dominant trends that made people leave Europe and establish a country based on sovereign States, individual liberty and property rights. Our “liberals” fight against State sovereignty, individual liberty and individual property rights. And our population is apparently too poorly educated to understand our own history.
