Was ISIS behind a possible attempt on two lives of France train heroes?

Anybody see this connection between Alek Skarlatos and the Roseburg Massacre? Skarlatos said he was supposed to be present that day in Snyder Hall, the same building where Harper-Mercer carried out his massacre.

So two of the heroes from the Muslim Terrorist train attack are back in the news. Just a coincidence that two of them so far either had a brush with violence, or were stabbed seriously. Strange isn’t it that the topic is gun control with us getting few details of the happenings. So here are the two stories, with the full American Thinker piece worthy of a full read. Here we go:

Was last week’s massacre at Umpqua Community College in Oregon a failed attempt to assassinate a Christian American hero for thwarting a Muslim terrorist train attack this summer in France?

Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS, ISIL, and Daesh) apparently claimed responsibility on Twitter for the killings Harper-Mercer carried out at Umpqua.  The tweet states, “Again #Oregon #USA #WashingtonDC #IslamicState #ISIS #USA[,]” and displays a graphic with the words “Slay Americans” in front of an image of a man in the process of being beheaded.

There may simply be a series of unlikely coincidences at play, or there may be circumstantial evidence suggesting that anti-jihadist hero Alek Skarlatos was an intended target of Chris Harper-Mercer, who put several Christians to death in an Umpqua classroom on Thursday, Oct. 1 for being Christian.

As USA Today reports

In a taped interview with Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday, Skarlatos said he was supposed to be in the building where Thursday’s shooting took place.

“I had classes in Snyder Hall,” said Skarlatos.  “It’s a fairly small community college, the town in general, everybody knows each other.  So with that many deceased, I mean everybody’s going to know at least one person.” […]

“I would have been there today if I didn’t agree to do this show,” he said.  “I had classes picked out and everything.”Read more: American Thinker

Then we have this:

France Train Hero Spencer Stone Stabbed, In ‘Serious Condition’

Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, celebrated as a hero for helping to stop a terror attack on a French train over the summer, was stabbed and seriously wounded outside a bar in his hometown early Thursday in what police said was an alcohol-related brawl.

Stone, 23, was knifed repeatedly in the upper body but was expected to survive, authorities said. He was taken to UC Davis Medical Center.

A press conference from about the stabbing is scheduled for 4:15 p.m.. It will be streaming live at cbs13.com/raw.

“This incident is not related to terrorism in any way,” Deputy Police Chief Ken Bernard said. “We know it’s not related to what occurred in France months ago.”

(No question about it and let us not have even a thought on the matter.)

Hillary Clinton and her accomplishment ‘fibs’- ‘I brought peace to Ireland’

Hillary is being pressed on her accomplishments. I thought I would give us a heads up before her ‘fibs’ take hold. An ounce of prevention goes a long way. I know she is digging deep, so I thought this little number might get the ball rolling. She presented this fib during her 2008 Presidential campaign.

Now on to the truth of the matter.

If you’re running for president on the basis of your claims of experience, when you then cite examples, you should be careful to be accurate,” Craig said. “The evidence should be accurate. And my point is that Senator Clinton and her supporters have in serious ways overstated, if not grossly exaggerated, the nature of her experience.” FACTCHECK: Hillary’s Adventures Abroad March 13, 2008 We find some exaggerations in Clinton’s claims of foreign policy experience.

Hillary Clinton faces tough questions – well, almost!

For today, something on the lighter side. Now that Hillary is out and about, answering those set up tough questions that have her sweating bullets, I thought I would give you this. Enjoy. (I think I enjoyed her dancing on Ellen a bit more.)

Obama considering reaching for that Pen on gun control

No sooner had I read that Hillary Clinton: “I am going to get those guns out of people’s hands” from over at America’s Watchtower – by Executive action by golly if required, well good ole Hussein said now isn’t that a swell idea, and started reaching for that Pen and Phone. Hint: Keep your eye on ammo. An easier route.

The White House is considering whether President Obama can take executive action to enforce stronger gun control measures, White House spokesman Joshua Earnest said on Monday.

“The president has frequently pushed his team to consider a range of executive actions that could more effectively keep guns out of the hands of criminals and others who shouldn’t have access to them,” Earnest said Monday. “That’s something that is ongoing here.”

Earnest was responding to questions from reporters following Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she would consider executive action to expand background checks on gun buyers by closing the so-called gun show loophole.

Clinton’s move marks the second time she has said she will consider going farther than the Obama administration by taking unilateral action on hot-button issues. She has already said that she would expand on Obama’s unilteral actions granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens if Congress fails to pass immigration reform.

German woman get eviction notice to make room for ‘migrants’

The Blaze brings us this story. Think it can’t happen here?  Think about the earlier story I posted about Seattle getting rid of single-family zoning. Utopia soon to follow

“We can still be a city for everyone, but only if we give up our outdated ideal of every family living in their own home on a 5,000 square foot lot,” a draft letter from the committee co-chairs reads.

According to a draft letter, the city needs to move away from the idea that all families can live in their own home on a piece of land, the Times reports.

But I digressed. Think Bernie Sanders is a joke? Attracting thousands? Think again.

A German woman is protesting the eviction notice she received informing her she has until the end of the year to vacate the government-owned apartment she rents in order to make room for migrants who have arrived seeking asylum.

“I think it’s a scandal to throw tenants out of their apartments,” Gabriele Keller, 56, told Germany’s SWR television. “I can’t see the sense of it.”

Britain’s Daily Telegraph reported that Keller has lived in the same home in the city of Eschbach for 23 years and has now hired a lawyer to fight the eviction.

According to news reports, she was told that she was being asked to move because building a new shelter would be too expensive for the municipality. Instead, the building will be converted for migrant housing.

Europe is facing the most challenging migrant crisis in decades, as countries scramble to cope with the influx.

German officials estimate 800,000 migrants will arrive in Germany by the end of the year.

Sunday Respite ‘That’s what I love about Sundays’

Have a great day. Here is my Sunday respite.

Guns? So just what is it you are proposing?

This is a different kind of video for a Saturday. The left screeches that something has to be done about guns after the recent violence. This riff done over at MSNBC should bring a chuckle. When pressed on exactly what should be done, the wandering spin begins.

National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke gently makes the same point by pressing Mark Halperin and then Mika Brzezinski to explain their policy ideas when both demand action. The result is the same in both cases — they fume, they growl about Congress, but they have no proposals of their own (via the Free Beacon and Jazz):
