NEWTOWN, Conn. — One day after the second-worst school shooting in U.S. history, a stunned nation on Saturday began a grim, all-too-familiar process: Mourning the loss of innocents, learning more about a killer and looking for answers in the wake of madness. The White House announced Saturday that the president would travel to Newtown, Conn., on Sunday to join grieving families at a vigil for the victims killed Friday in the shooting spree that claimed the lives of 28, including 20 children. Through the day Saturday, more details trickled out on the tragedy – from revelations
If he takes the MSM with him, shame on Obama; If he tries to be a savior by declaring a temp. ban on guns while there... We know what true evil looks like, beyond the lkillings... those that take advantage of others grief.
The Washington Times is as bad as the rest. Obama has won the election, can´t run again, yet they keep deifying him. Obama alone made the front page of the NY Daily News today in another Christ-like rendering.
If I lived in that town, or was related to one of the victims, I wouldn´t go near this opportunistic Chicago thug. His purpose there is to further his agenda of gun control. He cares not for the victims--ask the people of Staten Island whom he used as a photo op and to help get him elected, then tossed aside.
The media, in general, gets worse every time something horrific happens. My neighbor watching nonstop. She says there is quite a bit of exaggeration about heroic acts, and all with little factual information. The sad part is that hopeful authors of new books, Hollywood film makers scouting for who will be willing to be part of the upcoming TV campaign for gun control, etc. are all going on as we speak. I really feel bad for the families of these babies. What they will be enduring from all those seeking to profit politically from this in the coming days and months is truly abuse.
When the results of their failed social policies, their lack of solid moral values, their abandonment of God and their numerous hedonistic agendas come home to roost, they always attempt to pin blame on some inanimate object. Don’t believe their garbage, it’s the mind set and conscience of the country that must be changed . . . not the caliber of a gun.
Why didn´t Obama head to Mexico for the hundreds, (if not thousands) that were killed with his Admin´s previous plan to get gun control on the table? Since he claimed Exec Privilege on that, doesn´t that make him responsible for more murders than this misguided kid?? Just asking...
Already the story is about him. Headline mentions him first. If he cared, he would stay away and send a statement to be read, if anything. Now, Obama, keep the cameras away. Keep them out. Not one picture of you, with anyone, at anytime. Maybe after that I MIGHT believe you are doing this for the right reason.
Imagine the vision of a caravan of 22 large black vehicles with dark windows and flashing lights charging through a despondent town in CT. What comfort can this add to a town suffering from such a horrific tragedy? Sends chills down my spine.
Oh, I´m sure it will be billed as private with no video but I wouldn´t be surprised if a cellphone video ´accidentally´ captures him flipping his airtears with his middle finger as a repeat of his message to the NRA on Friday.
Since this was not Obie´s screwup, you never know, he might actually look a few of the grieving parents in the eye with the suspect fake emotion as opposed to the Benghazi marine´s father. when Obie shook the father´s hand, he just looking past the guy like he wasn´t there. make it quick Obie. get your photo op then get the H out of Newtown.

Let´s see...how will he insert himself into this? He will cry and wipe away crocodile tears and get himself and his wife in the middle.
Picture HIS MAJESTY 0BAMBAM a la Rosa Parks´ bus, moon landing remembrance...
He´s as fake as a three dollar bill. Rachel Scott´s father said that parents don´t really care about having strangers come and try to give comforting advice when they are grieving. BamBam should stay away, but then he wouldn´t have great photo-ops.
Just which pResident started this whole idea that they need to go and be physically present at sites of damage? I don´t recall that this used to be the case. Not Kennedy. Not Johnson. Not Nixon. Not Ford. Who?
I wonder if he will cry from just one eye like he did when he was supposedly so caught up in grief Friday. He only wiped the tears? from his left eye. Maybe that is the only way a devil cries. Who knows..
Does the Democ´RAT Clown Prince have no conscience? Get ready for another Shameless Photo-OP. The LSM will then give him the obligatory reach-around, and then he´ll fly away to Hawaii; till the middle of January when he´ll return for his next Immaculation.
On May 24-26, 15,000 muslims came to Hartford to insist on passage of shariah law as a means of judging muslim incidents in the CT courts. They have targeted other cities as well. Shariah law has been adapted by many cities in Great Britain, and is on the move in a declining Europe. There is a promise by an Almighty God in Hosea 4:6. -- "If you forget Me I will forget your children." He cannot lie. Michelle Bachmann is the only vocal representative saying Obama wants to lifet up the Islamists -- in a sense taking us away from His pre-eminence and protection. I am not saying there is ANY connection. Chaos is random. But our policy is chaos and total transformation, which no one can explain. You also may have not read about Russian nuclear submarines off the eastern coast, and of at least one Pakistani mini submarine supposedly off loading Pakistanis on our shores -- Pakistan being one terrorist country with nukes. For some reason we will not rededicate our country to Christ. Worse, we booed Christian values at the democrat convention, and we see these values under attack by the republican leadership. There is no parent in this country who is not heartbroken to numbness over the enormity of this evil. Evil the reality, not the cliche. We are heartbroken for our country, to many of the greatest of all countries, and to others the source of all the world´s problems. We are loss to explain the disparity in understanding this place, and what has come to us. Please God, may these little ones, now in Heaven, lead us back to your covering and peace.
Tears gather in the inside corners of the eyes. See Boehner, John. 0bama has no soul OR tears for babies.
Its only through the grace of God that our current POTUS didn´t emulate the same acts as a young man. He, however was given the attention he needed to turn that evil immoral sociopath into our Resident instead of a tragedy like Newtown. He would have been just like Lanza. He can thank only his grandparents for that.
FTA: "But federal and state officials, citing beefed up security and safety procedures in recent years, say that the country’s K-12 schools have become safer in recent years, according to the most recent statistics.
The U.S. Department of Education reported that the number of people killed in so-called “school-associated” incidents fell from a high of 63 in the 2006-2007 school year to 33 in the latest full school year."
These gov´t reassurances make me feel SO much better. Only 33 in the last year. What a relief.
I think Obama is going to promote his gun control agenda. He is showing his Islam buddies and murderers that he is willing to disarm America and we will be ready for whatever mayhem awaits us. Where else to kill as many people as possible than in an elementary school, day care center, nursing home or senior center or any place where people gather and there is no known armed resistence. Gun free zones are the stupidest Liberal idea ever. It´s just a sign for any terrorists to mark their targets and cause unbelievable suffering and tragedy. If I were a parent I would not send my child to a school that is not secure. From now on I would hope that people would start demanding security for their kids in a public school or any place where children or elderly are. Ever since the SC decided that life was not precious, we have had to deal with this. Apparently it will not go away until someone shoots back or the bad guys can´t count on being successful enough to make the news. They don´t care about their lives, they just want big numbers of our lives. The culture of death and we know which party is enamoured of that.
Interesting to see the similarity in so many fellow L-dotters reactions.
One is torn between horror at what happened, and sorrow for the families -- and fury at the vulgar, brassy opportunism of some politicians and political activists. The latter types have certainly taken Rahm´s (or was it Axelrod´s) advice about never letting a crisis go to waste, haven´ they? Obama, who was just barely tolerable in his message to the nation, hasn´t the civility to for once step back and allow one major event to pass without making it all about him.
As for the news media, as usual they are giving their best nauseating imitation of those clownish ghouls who tie up the traffic on highways after an accident by slowing down to a crawl hoping feverishly for glimpses of blood and guts strewn over the road.
I am sure that families nearly paralyzed by grief really enjoy having microphones thrust up their noses while the entire horrendous event is turned into a cheap soap opera.
Went back and listened to the 12-15-12 Jack Van Impe Report again. Al-Qaeida has decared a firebombing policy against the US. Part of the "plan" is to use Pakistani minisubs. The 2 Pakistani terrorists caught here were nationalized Americans and not "off loaded" from a minisub. My mistake.
Everything Obama does is political. And as corroborated by former staff, he is not a people person. He doesn´t even like people in the words of one staffer. What is he doing going to Newtown other than to clog up that tragic place with enormous security and delays.
Obama´s inevitable assault on gun ownership concerns me more than the probability of another psycho like this doing another mass killing. In a mall with thousands of shoppers present, if nobody else has a weapon, the body count could easily surpass 100. Fast & Furious didn´t play well for him but this one is the perfect storm for gun control.
That said, the shooter´s mother has every right to own legal weapons but why would she have top of the line handguns and a Bushmaster unlocked in the house when she obviously had a very troubled child at home? Part of the responsibility lies with her but I guess we´ll never know how much.
The Chicago Tribune reported 10 shootings on Friday alone. You think the President will show up there and point out that his former Chief of Staff cannot control the city. Don´t expect so, or he would have to go there every weekend, because there are shootings every weekend.
The sad part to witness is that "now" we can pray, ask for God´s intervention. Before we denied children/teachers to pray in school, then we want to blame Him when havoc occurs. The ACLU has controlled our schools, not God!
America needs to stand up for Righteousness (God´s will/way)!
Abortion is the law of the land. Many of these children were probably not wanted by the government, only by their parents, who sacrificed to provide their needs.
This country has turned away from God, denying His existence even, not wanting Baby Jesus to be seen anymore.
Political correctness is diabolical. Satan has caused all this havoc. Sadly too many politicians stand on both sides, first agreeing, then when havoc occurs, they wonder "where was God"?! They had already said we don´t want You here or anything about you.
Look at our President´s Christmas Card - a doggie on it. He speaks from both sides of his mouth.
Guess all decision are beyond Obama´s pay grade.
One day Obama will stand before Almighty God and he will not be able to pass the buck and blame US!
We are all accountable for our actions!
Scripture says: Let God arise and His enemies be scattered!
SECAUCUS, N.J. -- Forget about setting up those kegs or buffet tables in the parking lot before this season´s Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium. There will be no tailgating, according to the game´s committee CEO, Al Kelly. "You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in your car," Kelly said. "And provided you´re in the boundaries of a single parking space, you´ll be able to eat or drink right next to your car. However, you´re not going to be able to take out a lounge chair, you´re not going to be able to take out
One of Congress‘ staunchest critics of Obamacare released a report Monday that cheers on legal challenges to the overhaul and says the White House overstepped its authority by delaying aspects of the law. Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican who helped engineer a lengthy government funding stalemate earlier this year in a bid to block money for the new health care law, said many aspects of the Affordable Care Act are “constitutionally or statutorily suspect” and that the entire law should be repealed. While a repeal is unlikely so long as Democrats control the Senate and White House, Mr. Cruz said
The nation’s new health-care law says insurers can’t turn anyone away, even people who are sick. But some companies, patient advocates say, have found a way to discourage the chronically ill from enrolling in their plans: offer drug coverage too skimpy for those with expensive conditions. Some plans sold on the online insurance exchanges, for instance, don’t cover key medications for HIV, or they require patients to pay as much as 50 percent of the cost per prescription in co-insurance — sometimes more than $1,000 a month. “The fear is that they are putting discriminatory plan designs into place to
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 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
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
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
