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.

There were 95 Democrats who voted against the move to table the measure. Notable progressives, including Chairmen Jerry Nadler of the Judiciary Committee and Jim McGovern of the Rules Committee, voted “no” against the effort, along with members of the Congressional Black Caucus and Hispanic Caucus, some of the strongest voices for impeachment in Congress.

A large group of moderates, centrists and freshmen voted with Republicans, putting the divisive topic of impeachment on ice – for the time being.

Al Green

House Democratic leaders avoided a direct vote on Rep. Al Green’s articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump with Republicans’ help, as Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy moved Wednesday to table the Texas Democrat’s resolution.

The motion was agreed to, 332-95, with Oregon Democrat Peter A. DeFazio voting “present.”

“In my opinion, it didn’t fail. In my opinion, we got 95 votes this time, 66 the last time. So that’s a plus. But whether we get 95 or 5, the point is we have to make a statement,” Green said after the vote.Read more

Twitter will hide ‘harmful tweets’ from public figures. Hint: Trump

 

Today, Twitter is rolling out a new notice for tweets belonging to public figures that break its community guidelines. Now, if a figure like President Donald Trump were to tweet something that broke Twitter’s rules, the platform could notify users of the violation and lessen the reach of the tweet. In recent interviews, Twitter executives have hinted that a change like this would be coming soon.

 

“In the past, we’ve allowed certain Tweets that violated our rules to remain on Twitter because they were in the public’s interest, but it wasn’t clear when and how we made those determinations,” Twitter’s safety team wrote in a blog post. “Serving the public conversation includes providing the ability for anyone to talk about what matters to them; this can be especially important when engaging with government officials and political figures.”

Trump, in particular, has drawn criticism for perceived violations of Twitter’s rules. In 2017, he tweeted a picture showing himself wrestling with the CNN logo, which many saw as encouraging violence targeted at the media.

In January 2018, Twitter specifically addressed calls to ban Trump from the service. “Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate,” the company said in a blog post at the time.

This should work out swell for the 2020 election. We can’t say we didn’t see this coming.

Schiff: ‘Biden Ukraine Scandal should be off limits’

 

Trump made a comment that he should ask Barr to investigate Joe Biden’s foreign ties and suddenly like magic now the entire Left is saying presidential candidates shouldn’t be spied on. One thing you have to say for the Dems, they sure stick together. Not like the weasels on the GOP Senate Intelligence Committee who voted to try and snag Donald Trump Jr in a perjury trap.

Joe Biden

It was a miss step in my view, for Giuliani to announce he was headed for the Ukraine, but then, Rudy is a media hog anyway. Better heads prevailed and he has cancelled the idea apparently. But no matter, the story will come to naught, after all, it’s just good old Joe being good old Joe.

Now the China story. That is the one that might have better legs after Biden make his comments about China. Joe Biden: ‘China not bad folks, not competition to us’

This after his son made out like a bandit.

 

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on Sunday that Joe Biden’s Ukraine corruption scandal should be off limits as the 2020 US election approaches, and that President Trump shouldn’t be allowed to investigate – or encourage Ukraine to investigate.

Biden has come under fire for a March, 2016 incident in Kiev in which he threatened to withhold $1 billion in US loan guarantees to Ukraine unless President Petro Poroshenko fired his head prosecutor, General Viktor Shokin, who was leading a wide-ranging corruption investigation into natural gas firm Burisma Holdings. As it so happens, Joe’s son Hunter Biden sat on Burisma’s board, and waas indirectly paid as much as $50,000 per month

‘I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” bragged Biden, recalling the conversation with Poroshenko.

Well, son of a bitch, he got fired,” Biden gloated.

The tape at about 5:40 addresses the Ukraine scandal.

 

 

The comments by Biden in asking the firing of the Ukraine Prosecutor are in the first few minutes of the clip.

Schiff hires more lawyers in unrelenting effort to find Trump guilty of crimes

 

One thing one has to give the Democrats credit for, it is their unrelenting effort to achieve their goal. In this case, harassing Donald Trump, his children and grandchildren.

Democrats subpoena financial records from Trump grandchildren ..

The operative statement in the Democrats plan “apply significant resources” – apparently having spent 45 Million, last I read, was not enough. We can only hope the American people get fed up with this nonsense. Best case scenario at this point. Time to turn the tables on Schiff and investigate his leaks big time.

 

House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) hired Patrick Fallon, former chief of the FBI’s Financial Crimes Section as he ramps up his investigations into President Trump’s finances.

The Daily Beast and CNN reported that Schiff doesn’t feel Mueller’s probe was robust enough so he hired Patrick Fallon to help enforce his committee’s subpoenas.

This comes on the heels of Schiff hiring Daniel Goldman as the panel’s director of investigations. Goldman worked out of the Southern District of New York and specializes in Russian organized crime.

Goldman is also a fellow at the George Soros-funded Brennan Center for Justice, with offices in New York City and Washington, DC.

Breitbart News reported Schiff hired Daniel Goldman, who worked with Noble on the Zemlyansky case. He left the U.S. Attorney’s office in 2017 to become a legal analyst on NBC and MSNBC, where he regularly  accused President Donald Trump of committing crimes to win the presidential election.

Schiff, who became chairmen of the committee after Democrats took back the House majority, tapped Daniel Noble, co-chief of the complex frauds and cybercrime unit at the Manhattan office, unnamed sources told Bloomberg News.

Noble, who has deep experience in cybercrime, worked with Goldman to convict Mikhail Zemlyansky in 2015 of racketeering, insurance fraud and securities fraud.

Former Assistant Director of the FBI’s CI Division Frank Figliuzzi said Schiff’s hiring of Patrick Fallon is a big deal.

“The fact that the Committee has hired someone at the former senior executive service level from within the FBI’s Financial Crimes Section is significant, and to me denotes an effort to apply significant resources to examining and analyzing financial findings,” Figliuzzi told the Daily Beast. “By the time you got to the head of the Financial Crimes section, you would have substantial white collar crime and global financial crime experience, both at the street level and the supervisory level. And his role at headquarters would have had him overseeing the bulk of all financial crime cases in the FBI.”

This man is absolutely deranged.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) responds to a letter from House Intelligence Committee Republicans calling for his resignation following the attorney general’s summary of the Mueller report.

 

See earlier post:

Schiff hires another Russian investigator to go after Trump

 

 

Why didn’t the GOP hire all kinds of Attorneys to investigate Hillary?  Where are all funds coming from to hire these high-priced attorneys? They sure aren’t coming cheap. This new hire sure is giving up a good gig to take on Trump. Looks like the Dems are giving up on Mueller giving them the goods on Trump. When will this end?

Finally, what is this deal with the Ukrainian connections? It seems every week or so a post seems to have a connection.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is adding another Assistant United States Attorney in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York in the House Intelligence Committee’s probe into President Donald Trump.

Schiff, who became chairmen of the committee after Democrats took back the House majority, tapped Daniel Noble, co-chief of the complex frauds and cybercrime unit at the Manhattan office, unnamed sources told Bloomberg News. 

Noble, who has deep experience in cybercrime, worked with Goldman to convict Mikhail Zemlyansky in 2015 of racketeering, insurance fraud and securities fraud. Zemlyansky ran a Russian-American criminal ring that perpetrated a $100 million no-fault auto scheme, according to prosecutors.

“Known as ‘Russian Mike,’ Zemlyansky is a Ukrainian native. His 36-person ring mainly comprised of people of Russian-American descent. They included ten doctors and three lawyers who sold out their professions for lucrative bribes to rubber-stamp bogus crash treatments and claims,” insurancefraud.org reported.

The hire comes just days after Breitbart News reported Schiff hired Daniel Goldman, who worked with Noble on the Zemlyansky case. He left the U.S. Attorney’s office in 2017 to become a legal analyst on NBC and MSNBC, where he regularly  accused President Donald Trump of committing crimes to win the presidential election.

Goldman is also a fellow at the George Soros-funded Brennan Center for Justice, with offices in New York City and Washington, DC.
