Obama: 24 Mass Shootings. Trump: 4 Mass Shootings

There have been eight mass shootings under Clinton, eight under Bush, and 24 under Obama.Ten Mass Shootings out of 24 since 1966 have happened under the Obama Administration. Four under Donald Trump.

One would never know the statistics with the pounding drum beat blaming  Donald Trump. Did anyone blame Obama for all of the mayhem under his watch? Johnson? Reagan, Bush, Obama?  Let’s step through the fog of mass shootings. Republicans are responsible for the violence?

Bonus information Democrat cities:

200th person Murdered in Baltimore this weekend.

7 killed this weekend in Chicago. 53 shot.

But I digress:

The first mass shooting in the collective American memory was the University of Texas at Austin shooting in August 1966. The shooter, armed with six weapons and ensconced at the top of the University of Texas Tower, killed 17 people, wounding more than 30 others.

Johnson’s first reaction sounds familiar to 21st-century ears. On August 2, 1966, the day after the shooting, White House press secretary Bill Moyers read a statement by the president that said, “What happened is not without a lesson: that we must press urgently for the legislation now pending in Congress to help prevent the wrong person from obtaining firearms.”

The statement added that “[t]he bill would not prevent all such tragedies. But it would help reduce the unrestricted sale of firearms to those who cannot be trusted in their use and possession.”

In July 1984, during Ronald Reagan’s first term as president, a gunman killed 21 people at a McDonald’s in San Ysidro, California.

Unlike Johnson, Reagan did not say anything publicly about the shooting. In fact, a search by the New York Times revealed that “[t]he Times did not report any comment from the administration of President Ronald Reagan. His public papers show no statements on the subject in the days following.”

When the Tylenol poisonings took place in Chicago in 1982, Reagan had also stood back, letting Johnson & Johnson take the lead in the response. Reagan appears to have been of the view that local tragedies should be handled at the local level, deferring to private-sector entities, when appropriate, to handle problems.

Reagan also appears to have remained quiet after the other two mass shootings during his presidency, one in Oklahoma and one in California. The 1986 Edmond, Oklahoma, shooting appears to be the first one in which a disgruntled post-office employee was the killer, the start of an unfortunate trend of about half a dozen of these shootings that would inspire the phrase “going postal.”

Similarly, Reagan’s successor and former vice president, George H. W. Bush, also generally avoided making statements about the four mass shootings during his administration.

The tradition of presidential silence in the wake of most mass shootings came to an end in the 1990s during the Clinton administration.

President Clinton did not weigh in on every one of the eight mass shootings during his tenure, but these events were now frequent enough to warrant presidential attention.

Eight under Clinton, eight under Bush, and 24 under Obama (see chart below).

Deadliest American Mass Shootings

Since Johnson, at the most the perception was that the President’s job was to console. Most remained uninvolved. Only one thing that has never happened before, they never were blamed for mass shootings. Why should Trump be blamed for it now?

A big tip of the hat goes to Drake’s Place for the lead.

George Soros long fingers in Chicago and DA races, State Secretaries of State

One benefit that has occurred with the Smollett case in Chicago was the name George Soros came to the fore. George has been a very busy man with local and State elections these past years focusing on little appreciated obscure positions in State governments such as Secretarys of State. These are critical positions that handle elections. Lately he has moved on to District Attorneys.

Example A:

Michelle Obama and Chief of Staff Tina Tchen

One Tina Tchen who greased the skids for Smollett via Foxx.

Tchen is a close pal of Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett and a longtime bag woman for Illinois Democrats

Tchen headed up the “Office of Public Engagement,” a murky outfit overseen by Jarrett that, among other things, had its hands in the Obama’s failed Chicago Crony-lympics bid and was in the middle of Obama administration efforts to recruit artists to advance their political agenda.

I pointed out in November 2009 that Tchen, a high-powered campaign finance bundler for Team Obama who personally raised more than $200,000 while a lawyer at Skadden Arps, is listed in White House visitor logs as having met there with none other than…  George Soros.

George Soros Spent $408k on Prosecutor in Jussie Smollett Case

Kim Foxx

Then we had State Attorney FOXX. 

Left-wing billionaire mega-donor George Soros donated $408,000 in 2016 to a super PAC that supported Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, whose office prosecuted — and dropped — the Jussie Smollett case

Law Enforcement Today

 

George Soros, the billionaire of progressive-slash-socialist and globalist causes the world over, has been busy buying his way into local district attorney campaigns in the United States. He has found he can get a lot of bang for his bucks in these races.

George Soros

Talk about trying to turn the judicial system into an activist camp for the left.

It’s one thing to exercise one’s First Amendment rights to support candidates with similar political leanings. It’s another thing entirely to try and collapse a limited government republic, from the bottom up, and implement, in its place, a judicial branch filled with people who twist the Bill of Rights into something it’s not, the Constitution into something it was never intended to be, and the rule of law into a mocking tool for far-left gain.

In California alone:

He was referring to the big money that Soros, via his funding of progressive-minded California Justice & Publicly Safety PAC, is tossing into several local D.A. races. In Contra Costa, a Soros-tied PAC has kicked in $100,000-plus to support the leftist candidate; in Alameda County, more than $550,000 of Soros-tied money has gone to a hard-core civil rights attorney fighting for the comparatively conservative District Attorney Nancy O’Malley’s seat. Another $400,000 or so of Soros money’s gone toward the Sacramento County district attorney race.

Washington Times

But the real deal are the State Secretary offices. Think it doesn’t matter? Look what happened with having Mark Ritchie Secretary of State in Minnesota and the Al Franken win. Who is Mark Ritchie?

Ritchie in the 1990s had been a member of the now-defunct socialist New Party.[20] Moreover, he has ideological ties to the Communist Party USA and has been described by communist Tim Wheeler as a “friend” of the Party.

It gave us Obamacare with the 60th vote.

Minnesota’s November election for U.S. Senate, Republican incumbent Norm Coleman finished 725 votes ahead of Democratic challenger Al Franken; the thin margin of victory, however, triggered an automatic recount. With Mark Ritchie presiding over the recount process during the ensuing weeks, Coleman’s lead gradually dwindled due to what journalist Matthew Vadum describes as a long series of “appalling irregularities” that invariably benefited Franken.

As USA Today reported at the time: “The political battle for control of the federal government has opened up a new front: the obscure but vital state offices that determine who votes and how those votes are counted.”[11]

The Secretary of State Project (SoSP) was established in July 2006 as an independent “527” organization devoted to helping Democrats get elected to the office of secretary-of-state in selected swing, or battleground, states.

One of the principal duties of the secretary of state is to serve as the chief election officer who certifies candidates as well as election results in his or her state.[2] The holder of this office, then, can potentially play a key role in determining the winner of a close election. Funding included George Soros. Other players were Mark Ritchie.

To establish “election protection” against similar disappointments in subsequent political races, SoSP in 2006 targeted its funding efforts on the secretary-of-state races in seven swing states: Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, and Ohio.[10]

Democrats emerged victorious in five of those seven elections, all except Colorado and Michigan. Politico.com would later characterize SoSP as “an administrative firewall” designed, “in anticipation of a photo-finish presidential election,” to protect Democrats’ “electoral interests in … the most important battleground states.”[12]

In 2008, SoSP supported Democratic secretary-of-state candidates in Missouri, Montana, Oregon and West Virginia; all four Democrats won. These results represented yet another high return on a relatively small financial investment for SoSP.

All going as planned. George Soros sponsored this little number Foxx as DA. Purpose? To break down the final thin blue line and society as a whole. To create this very angst. It is the Alinsky and Cloward-Piven way. The latest shiny object to keep us off our toes and overwhelm the system.

Other than that, all’s well in the swamp.

Flashback: Obama uses ‘National Emergency Powers’ to ban guns

Where were the twelve GOP Senators when Obama banned rifles with his “National Emergency Powers”? Their noble cause to uphold the Constitution? Meanwhile Obama Impinging on our Second Amendment.  We were going to hell in a hand basket by Obama’s damnable phone and a pen? Where were the court challenges by the GOP? The gnashing of teeth, wringing of hands? Now we are going to have our Nation over run by illegals and these toads will stand on their righteous petard that Trump’s “National Emergency Powers” is a constitutional over reach. What about protecting citizen’s Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?  Here is a B-ville flashback from 2014.

Note Obama uses the“National emergency powers” he believes he has. Here we go:

Outlaws import of Russian-made AK-47 rifles with stroke of his  pen

According to a Presidential Executive Order issued Wednesday, the importation of AKs manufactured by theKalashnikov Concern in Izhmash, Russia has been banned.

This includes the popular “Saiga” line of rifles and shotguns.

The sanctions were taken because of Russia’s aggression toward the Ukraine. Russian banks and energy companies were also targeted.

To be clear, the executive order does not affect Izhmash or Saiga firearms already in this country. This is not an “assault weapons” ban. Instead, it halts the importation of firearms from the Izhmash-based firm.

The news was released without fanfare, when the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) added Kalashnikov Concern and other Russian businesses to its “Specially Designated Nationals” or “SDN” sanctions list.

Obama exploited the conflict in Ukraine to target the importation of the popular AK line of firearms manufactured by Kalashnikov Concern in Izhmash, Russia. The unconstitutional ban includes the Saiga line of rifles and shotguns.

The OFAC, according to its website, “administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and national security goals against targeted foreign countries and regimes, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other threats to the national security, foreign policy or economy of the United States.”

The criminalization of an entire line of foreign manufactured firearms is possible under “national emergency powers” and there is no appeal process.

“Many of the sanctions are based on United Nations and other international mandates, are multilateral in scope, and involve close cooperation with allied governments,” according to the Treasury Department.

In a statement on their website issued early Thursday, Kalashnikov Concern noted that the sanctions will hurt U.S. consumers.

“It should be noted that the production of ‘Kalashnikov’ in the U.S. enjoys high demand, pre-order products civilian three times the annual volume of deliveries. Thus, taken in relation to ‘Kalashnikov’ sanctions the U.S. government go against the interests of American consumers,” the statement reads.”

It was founded in 1807, and exports arms and tools to 27 countries, including:  USA, UK, Germany, Norway, Italy, Canada, Kazakhstan and Thailand.

Democrats – An Anti-American Platform

 

An Anti-American Platform

By Mustang

Whenever Barack Obama was talking to all Americans, he spoke about unity.  When he was confronting an audience of black Americans, he told them that white people are racists, that white people hate black people, and that white people are the bad guys.  From Obama’s own voice, “It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned.  (White) people were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves.  They were more than satisfied —they were relieved— such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time.”

Throughout his administration, Obama continually said racist things about white people.  His attorney general discriminated against white Americans, his treasury department discriminated against conservatives, and his FBI targeted political enemies of Barack Obama.  This is not conjecture —it is fact.

Obama isn’t president anymore, of course.  I keep hoping to see him deposited onto the dustbin of history, but no … he’s still out stumping around the country reminding everyone what a dyed-in-the-wool racist he is —as he has always been.  The phenomenon is catching.  CNN’s pseudo-journalist, Don Lemon recently said the same thing: paraphrasing, the problem with our society is white men; we’ve got to do something about those radical white men.  CNN, the official propaganda arm of the Democratic Party refused to hold Lemon accountable for his racist sentiments.  But to be fair, Lemon isn’t the only one.  There are self-loathing white men who’ve jumped on that bandwagon as well.

 

Why is that?

It’s actually a page right from Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals: #12—pick your target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.  Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy.  Go after people, not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.  This is cruel, but very effective.  Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.

So then, to shut down any conversation about our diverse views, anti-American progressives (communists) attack anyone who disagrees with them by calling them racists, fascists, hate-mongers, right-wing radicals, white extremists, and bible-carrying gun owners.  The list goes on.  Do you oppose Obama Care?  You’re a racist.  Do you support closed borders?  You’re a racist.  Are you fed up with Islamic extremism?  You’re Islamophobic.  Do you happen to believe that homosexuality is a sin?  You’re homophobic.  Do you think there is something seriously wrong, mentally, with transgenders?  You’re transgenophobic.

Now, says the communist left, since you’re so full of hate for your fellow-man, sit down and shut up.  If you don’t want to sit down and shut up, the left will send along representatives from their terrorist arm to beat you up.  We see this every day on the televised news; well, at least on conservative learning news services.  They even assault senior politicians who are dining in public —egged on by Representative Maxine Waters, a professed communist.

Who are these people? 

 

Ironically, they call themselves Anti-FA (for anti-fascist).  In reality, they are the new-day brown shirts … and they do present a clear and present danger to law abiding citizens, particularly those who refuse to carry a concealed weapon.  The behavior of these thugs is among the worst examples of hate-mongering I’ve ever seen.

How does it advance our Republic?

It doesn’t.  But it is the new face of the Democratic Party.  This is the new communist front.  It exists full-bore today within the United States of America.

Now, about that “Hope and Change” line during Obama’s candidacy?  Here’s what he really thinks: “I don’t believe it is possible to transcend race in this country.  Race is a factor in this society.  The legacy of Jim Crow and slavery has not gone away.”

Of course not.

It hasn’t gone away because Democrats perpetuate it and the black racists in this country are too heavily invested in maintaining racial discord.  Disunity is their goal —and they are achieving it.

By the way, whenever you listen to a dunderhead on CNN or MSNBC talking about right-wing fascism, know immediately that the person speaking is a complete idiot.  Fascism originated on the left.  Not from Hitler (who adopted it as part of his National Socialist scheme), but from Benito Mussolini.  The word fascist is the shortened version of Mussolini’s Fasci Rivoluzionari d’Azione Internazionalista Party, translated to Revolutionary Fashions of Internationalist Action.  No one on the right has ever been a fascist.

Well, something to think about as you drive over to the voting station on Tuesday. 

Washington state refuses to allow coal export terminal, in legal battle with 6 states

 

Washington State via the court will try and stop the coal export terminal. This is a federal port. Just another in the list of judges who will put their nose into it. Stopping utility lines, laying pipelines and improving refineries, – don’t even consider building a new one. But forget the impact of the huge solar panels that fry birds in an instant. Wind farms that are equally as devastating. A wink and a nod to them. The list is endless. They would have us go back to being Hunter-Gatherers. First some history and what we need to remember at this election time, and then will include here what the wacko birds are trying to do. In this case, stopping exporting coal and costing thousands of jobs.

Keep in mind: There are 400 coal-powered electric plants in the United States. They generated 30 percent of the nation’s electricity.(Jul 31, 2015)  Some states like Ohio, 54 percent comes from coal.

McCarthy: “The hicks in flyover country were too stupid to understand that we were doing them a favor by killing their jobs”.

 

 

 

Recall this? This one says it all:

EPA Chief: ‘Hicks in flyover country too stupid that we were doing them a favor killing their jobs

She implement controversial environmental regulations such as the Clean Power Plan (CPP) — which are viewed as job-killers in coal country — and told reporters earlier this year that she gave up talking to “climate deniers.”

“I don’t check out flat Earth society and I’m not talking to climate deniers,” she said in October. “That’s it. Sorry, I know I’m supposed to be for everybody, but my patience has worn thin over eight years.”

 

Trump repeals coal mining regulations, signs legislation

In case we wonder why we elected Trump, and what will happen if we don’t support the man in November by electing conservatives. I give you a few of what we were up against and lucky for us, Trump won:

 

 

EPA ‘clean coal’ rule would increase power prices by 70 or 80 percent

An Obama administration official has said that the new clean coal rules could increase electricity prices by as much as 80 percent.
Dr. Julio Friedmann, the deputy assistant secretary for clean coal at the Department of Energy, told House lawmakers that the first generation of carbon capture and storage technology would increase wholesale electricity prices by “70 or 80 percent.”
The Obama administration’s plan to fight global warming includes limiting carbon dioxide from new power plants. In order for new coal-fired power plants to be built, however, they would need to install costly carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.

Obama’s war on coal hits our electric bill

EPA shuts down one of the largest Coal Mines in U.S.

It is the first time in the agency’s 40-year history that it has canceled a federal water permit for a project after it was issued.

The EPA noted in its own press release that it was asserting a rarely used authority

Obama’s promise to bankrupt coal industry to cost 1,000 jobs in upper Midwest

 

Now the latest:

A lawsuit has pitted six landlocked states against Washington State over a simple question: Who owns the federal ports?

Washington State is denying the states the permits required to build a large coal export terminal along the Columbia River. The states have sued and Washington filed a motion for dismissal.

But U.S. District Court Judge Robert Bryan rejected Washington State’s motion, setting the stage for a legal showdown over who really gets final say over which products flow through the nation’s sea ports.

“We’re talking about the Constitution and the rule of law,” said Montana Attorney General Tim Fox, “One state can’t discriminate against another state’s commodities in this way.”

Montana and Wyoming are leading plaintiffs and two of the largest coal-producing states in the country. The Powder River Basin contains 2.5 billion tons of recoverable coal and currently supplies 40 percent of the coal used in the United States. But as many states wean themselves off of electricity from burning coal, coal companies are looking to boost exports, primarily to Asia. But they have a major problem: there are no ports along the West Coast currently set up to load coal onto ships.

Four other states, Kansas, Utah, South Dakota and Nebraska, have joined the lawsuit against Washington State.

The Millennium Bulk Terminal, proposed for the port in Longview, Wash., was supposed to solve that obstacle. It was designed to export 44 million metric tons of coal a year. Important allies and trading partners Japan and South Korea were eager to buy the coal. But after conducting an environmental impact study, the state of Washington denied the terminal a required water permit.

“I think we’re on sound ground,” said Washington’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee, “because we’re enforcing our environmental rules for clean air and noise and some other issues.”

Snip…

“It is insulting to all Washington residents that proponents of this facility have chosen to minimize and ridicule the impact diesel emissions from the largest operation of the largest coal export facility in North America would have had on the people of Cowlitz County,” said Ecology’s spokesman Dave Bennett.

But Governor Jay Inslee makes no secret of his disdain for coal. In his 2007 book, “Apollo’s Fire: Igniting America’s Clean Energy Economy,” Inslee wrote, “coal is killing us. If we fail to restrain growth of CO2 emissions all six billion of us on this little spaceship are at risk.”

He also wrote that coal and cars are in a race to be the greatest danger to our climate. And at a recent news conference in which he announced Washington state would file its 32nd lawsuit against the Trump Administration over the dismantling of president Obama’s Clean Power Plan, Inslee said: “We’re breathing smoke from Mississippi, we’re breathing smoke from the rest of the United States. We have an interest in reducing coal smoke from all over the United States.” More at Fox News

Benghazi hero suspended by Twitter after criticism of Obama

 

We owe it to those who were willing to risk their lives and gave their lives in Benghazi to give some attention to what Twitter did to Kris Paronto. This is only going to get worse. Meanwhile Linda Sasour’s account remains in fine shape as well as:

Active Twitter accounts:

– Farrakhan
– Hamas
– Ahmadinejad

Suspended Twitter account:

– Benghazi hero Kris ‘Tanto’ Paronto

Now if he had criticized Trump all would have been okay. (Note there are some long breaks in my post.) Go over to Gateway Pundit to see the thread  Gateway Pundit

 

A refresher as Hillary Clinton breeches again for this November election- just what a liar she is with her evolving statements on Benghazi. No less than from CNN.

 

Barack Obama: “The politics of division and paranoia has found a home, unfortunately, in the Republican party. … they’ve embraced wild conspiracy theories by those surrounding Benghazi. Or my birth certificate.”

Benghazi hero Kris Paronto responded to the former president.

Kris has not forgotten about the men lost as Obama did nothing.

Kris Paronto@KrisParonto

Benghazi is a conspiracy @BarackObama ?! How bout we do this,let’s put your cowardly ass on the top of a roof with 6 of your buddies&shoot rpg’s&Ak47’s at you while terrorists lob 81mm mortars killing 2 of your buddies all while waiting for US support that you never sent🖕🏼

Kris Paronto@KrisParonto

After being in the @Twitter penalty box for a few and having to delete the below tweet 😏 for offending the leftist hate group @itmustend_ 😢 for their epic fail of telling Rob O’Neill that BHusseinObama killed UBL and not him I’m back up..sooo Twitter doesn’t censor ehh @jack ?

 

Obama – Trumpers are ‘divisive, resentful and paranoid’ – don’t forget Obama’s paranoia

 

Less we forget how Paranoid Obama was, he refused lunch at a senator’s luncheon because his food taster wasn’t there.

Former President Barack Obama is blasting Republicans, saying “the politics of division and resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican Party.”

In a moment reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s outrageous characterization of Trump voters as “deplorable” and “irredeemable,” President Obama said: “I have to say this … Over the past few decades, the politics of division and resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican Party.”

Labeling the 63 million Trump voters as “deplorable” and “irredeemable” didn’t work out for Hillary Clinton when she ran a failed presidential campaign against Trump in 2016. Labeling the same voters as divisive, resentful and paranoid will not work for Democrats in the November midterm elections.

Democrats continually demonstrate a fundamental misunderstanding and active demonization of Trump voters. They are clearly wrong but don’t realize they’re wrong. Fox News

But then again-

Obama Paranoid? Or just blaming others.

or how about this one?

Paranoid Obama won’t eat GOP Capitol Hill lunch UPDATE

 WASHINGTON — Following President Obama’s lunch meeting with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill, Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins described the food served and the president’s reaction to what was on menu.

“Unfortunately, you know, the president can’t,” said Collins when asked if Obama ate at the lunch meeting.

He looked longingly at it,” Collins continued. “He honestly did look longingly at it, but apparently he has to have essentially a taster, and I pointed out to him that we were all tasters for him, that if the food had been poisoned all of us would have keeled over so, but he did look longingly at it and he remarked that we have far better food than the Democrats do, and I said that was because I was hosting.”

A reminder of what a nasty hateful man Obama was.
