Dem. Rep. Jerrold Nadler is at least being honest about how he, and no doubt many Leftists, would like to feast off an unthinkable tragedy and exploit it in order to pursue a nonsensical agenda that would ensure only bad guys have guns. Last night on "The Ed Show," Nadler openly called for President Obama to "exploit" the murder of 20 children, “I think we will be there if the president exploits it, and otherwise we’ll go on to the next.” In his statement to the country yesterday, while he wasn´t specific about what action
Too bad Jerry, Bayrock has not passed a budget since he has been POTUS. HE got to do that first. Don´t you wish he had been taking care of business? Give the teachers a $50/Month stipend to maintain a CC permit and end "GUN FREE" zones!

No sane, rational personal can fail to be heartbroken over the deaths in the Connecticut school shooting this past Friday.
The young man who did this was mentally ill.
He is now being judged by his Maker for the deeds he did in the flesh. Unlike this life, justice in the next life is certain.
Now our politicians and others will begin the ritual of trying to eliminate guns (it began before we even knew the name of the assailant, or knew that he was a young male with mental problems)
The young man could have killed by setting fire to the school... maybe with even more deaths. He could have killed by running over the kids with a car or truck as they waited for the school bus. He cold have killed them with nails and nuts and bolts in a pipe bomb. He chose to use a gun.
Each year there are about 12,000 people killed in the US by all type of guns. Each year there are about 4,000 people killed with knives. Each year there are about 1,000 people killed with blunt objects like baseball bats, shovels and lampstands. Each year there are about 2500 people killed by other methods (poisoning, etc.)
Total - about 20,000 people.
Each year (over the last thirty years) there is an average of about 40,000 people who are killed in automobile accidents.
If we really want to save lives – the MOST lives - ban the automobile.
YES, that’s stupid. So is it stupid to ban all knives, all baseball bats and all lampshades. WHY? Because it is PEOPLE who kill, not the implement.
Michael Bloomberg didn´t even have the decency to wait until there was a final body count before he was on national TV calling for the end of private gun ownership.
As for Obama, you don´t have to fret about missing his opportunity. While the rest of the country mourns these little kids, you can count on Obama seeing a world rich with political opportunity ripe for the milking.
Let´s try not selling guns to mentally unstable people...opps, already do that.
Let´s ban guns altogether... Opps, See how well that works for cocaine.
Reinstate the "bad gun" ban.... Opps, he had pistols as well.
What really needs to happen is for people to get over the idea that they must not report unstable people for fear of stigmatizing them. opps, they don´t get in the database that bans them from buy guns. Well, at least you didn´t stigmatize them.
If people get their cues from government, it might be wise to condider a few facts: 1. The U.S. is one of the largest exporters and suppliers of light and heavy firepower to much of the Third World. We are also on the U.N Security Council. I won´t even talk about China, Russia, and the major players in Europe. The Left worships at the altar of the UN 2. The Left was all in a lather over the Iraq War. But now that a Democrat is in charge, and is ordering armed drone strikes on suspected terrorists without due process, the collective Left is mostly silent. 3. The Left screams and rants over an aberrant school massacre carried out by a maniac, and claim to care about the children. Yet, they continue to cheer and promote the daily slaughter of life that is carried out in abortion clinics. The estimated death toll is 300 million and rising since Roe v Wade was decided by the Supreme Court. 3. The Left considers G. W Bush one of the worst, evil presidents in U.S. history. Yet, they continue to worship Bill Clinton, a serial sexual harrasser, abuser, and unindicted rapist. I could go on and on and on, but the fact is, we live in an insane world that is run by various sociopaths and psychopaths. And we´re shocked when another isolated loser snaps his tether and mows down a bunch of helpless children.
I´m sure this thought immediately occurred on the left, and they´re pausing briefly to make it less obvious. I don´t doubt some silently celebrated this opportunity to push their agenda, though it´s likely one of their own that perpetrated the crime.
there are more people killed in car accidents than guns. Should we ban all cars? Air travel isn´t guaranteed. Many have died from plane crashes. Should we ban all flight. People have stabbed people to death, should all knives be collected? People have strangled others, should all hands be amputated?
How about EVERY person calling for more gun control, fire their personal, armed, guards and turn in any guns or knives they own. THEN let´s talk about gun control (after they have spent a few days, unarmed, on the streets of chicago). Nadler, you first.
There are a lot of mentally ill people out there who vote for the liberal Democrats, so don´t look for any liberal Democrats to pin the blame for this latest mass murder situation on a mentally ill person, while directly firearms have no vote, so look for the liberal Democrats to seriously attempt a gun control overreach.
When the liberal Democrats did that the last time, a lot of them were voted out of office in several elections. You can look for that to happen again, if the liberal Democrats do not limit their gun control efforts to steps designed to keep mentally ill people from easily getting their hands on firearms.
Yes. They will exploit it- especially since so many people now, in the shadow of the school shooting, don´t give a hoot about the lies the President and Sec. of State told over the dead American Ambassador and others. Benghazi? What´s that? It´s guns that are the real problem- guns in the hands of the damn free Americans!
And if you don´t agree with Nadler that NØbama should exploit this to take away our guns, then NØbama can just take Harry Belafonte´s suggestion and jail you like the third world dictator that he is quickly becoming.
Are there any lie-berals out there that have actually read the Consitituion and understant that it is the ultimate law of the land, NOT what lie-berals think it should be?!?!?!?!?
We need Breitbart to crusade for mandatory confined evaluation for certain mental illnesses. No more pill-pushing psychiatry. It always seems to be the seriously mentally ill people who go on these multiple murder sprees. Look at todays article from China. Another mentally ill person stabbed 20 people to death. Are we going to ban knives?
There’s nothing like a communal flight with the current president of the United States and his predecessor to make the press miss the days of a communicative commander in chief. George W. and Laura Bush joined the Obamas on Air Force One en route to Johannesburg, South Africa, for a Nelson Mandela memorial service. Hillary Clinton was also on board, with Bill and Chelsea coming to the service from a Clinton Global Initiative event in Rio. The Obamas have stayed in their cabin for the flight, according to the White House pool report from the refueling stop in Senegal, while
The raft of stories over the last week, the latest being today’s piece in Business Insider, about Democratic Party infighting has nicely illustrated something conservatives have known for a while. Complaints over the last few years about the GOP being pulled to the right by conservatives were not about liberals’ desire to meet in the middle and compromise, no matter how much they might decry the supposed extremist drift of the right. What they wanted was their very own Tea Party. It was the same with Occupy Wall Street: the pseudoanarchist gatherings were far more violent than Tea Party protests
The federal government announced today that it has sold the last of its General Motors stock, about 31.1 million shares or 2 percent of the company, ultimately losing about $10.5 billion on the original investment. The government once owned 912 million shares, or 60.8 percent of GM, which it received in return for the $49.5 billion bailout given to the auto manufacturer during the financial crisis of 2008–09. GM’s stock rose about 1.8 percent, or 73 cents, on the news today. GM’s North American president, Mark Reuss, said that he expects GM sales, especially of pickup trucks, to rise once
House and Senate negotiators were putting the finishing touches Sunday on what would be the first successful budget accord since 2011, when the battle over a soaring national debt first paralyzed Washington. The deal expected to be sealed this week on Capitol Hill would not significantly reduce the debt, now $17.3 trillion and rising. It would not close corporate tax loopholes or reform expensive health-care and retirement programs. It would not even fully replace sharp spending cuts known as the sequester, the negotiators’ primary target. After more than two years of constant crisis, the emerging agreement amounts to little more
The sequester, no matter how imperfect a policy, is arguably the only victory for fiscal conservatives in a very long time. Their victory is also president Obama’s biggest defeat (outside of the self-inflicted disastrous Obamacare rollout). It is also another opportunity to remind the American people that the alarmist predictions that we were all subjected to about the devastating impact sequestration would have on our economy didn’t materialize. Yet, in a new move, Republicans are once again considering caving to Democrats and getting rid of the spending cuts. This morning’s Wall Street Journal has the following. Still, officials close to
President Obama’s repeated use of presidential powers is causing a tough problem — his own supporters now expect him to use it to achieve everything they want. From immigration to the minimum wage, congressional Democrats and liberal activists this week urged Mr. Obama to declare an end run around Capitol Hill, assert executive authority and make as much progress as he can on the expansive agenda he laid out for his second term. A day after Mr. Obama denounced income inequality, progressive lawmakers said he should take the lead by issuing an executive order requiring all federal contractors to pay
Three crises, one president, many bewildered friends. The first crisis, barely noticed here, is Ukraine’s sudden turn away from Europe and back to the Russian embrace. After years of negotiations for a major trading agreement with the European Union, Ukraine succumbed to characteristically blunt and brutal economic threats from Russia and abruptly walked away. Ukraine is instead considering joining the Moscow-centered Customs Union with Russia’s fellow dictatorships Belarus and Kazakhstan. This is no trivial matter. Ukraine is not just the largest European country, it’s the linchpin for Vladimir Putin’s dream of a renewed imperial Russia, hegemonic in its neighborhood and
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
