Andrew McLaughlin, a former member of President Obama´s senior White House staff, who served as Deputy Chief Technology Officer of the United States, mocked Nancy Lanza, the murdered mother of the Newtown, CT massacre killer Adam Lanza, on Twitter Saturday evening: Andrew McLaughlin@McAndrew -The ever-brilliant Jo Miller nails it: "Thank god Nancy Lanza had a personal arsenal for her protection, or she might not be alive today."
It actually isn´t a bad statement. If you are housing a loved one with the combination of a development disability and a psychiatric disability (as his brother reported), then your house is not a good place to store multiple weapons. I´m sure she thought that familiarity with weapons would keep him from using them in the wrong way...but psychosis knows no such boundaries.
Good somebody is finally calling this clown a ´killer´ instead of the ´shooter´ . I gave up on Fox News yesterday after watching Bill Hammer and Jerry Rivets . Guys report the news and shut up about your broken hearts. The killer, like all these recent killers was a terminally unemployed young leftist. Otherwise known as Obama voters.
Thanks for the info about the killer´s voting record. Not surprising though considering he was psychotic. I thought I had heard all the State Police press conferences, but must have missed them reporting this. Wonder how they got this information; I thought when you pulled a voting lever it was private.

This McLaughlin character demonstrates the complete lack of humanity and decency that I find in almost all Democrats. Their sick little brains simply cannot fathom those concepts. Nor can they just keep their mouths shut... not for one second. The world awaits their every twisted thought.
This story is about mental health. The libs turned the mentally ill lose on society and believed that if the mentally ill remained among us it would make them "normal". Andrew is an a-hole and shows it by his tweet. I assume Andrew is a bit like Rosie O. She wants gun control but the security unit that protects her family are armed. Control for thy but not for me. If a few people had been trained and carrying that day maybe it would not have been so bad. If you turn schools into security prisons the crazy people will just go somewhere else. Grocery store, shopping mall, gas station.
A typically tasteless Leftist comment. But there is more than mere tastelessness at work in such insensitive, dehumanizing thinking, which represents the primacy of pure thought over actual existence, including existing human beings. Pressed to its logical limit, such thinking leads to the Gulag and to death camps. Of this, of course, shallow and self-righteous people like the sarcastic originator of the comment have no idea whatsoever. They would be horrified if they grasped the implications of their thinking. They naturally see themselves as on the side of the angels.
The above can seem dense and obscure, but it is really just about the reduction of the human and the real to the technical, i.e. inhuman and the abstract, which is the point of entry for the demonic. For it is not virtuous and angelic but demonic to mock and make fun of a murdered human being in the service of a political agenda, no matter how sublime and even valid the latter may seem to be.
The whole story of this awful slaughter has yet to be told. Cannibalizing its parts to score political points is itself a kind of violence not wholly dissimilar to the murders themselves. The ugly, sarcastic, self-righteous remark is another example of the malice and moral vanity of Leftism.
We knew this was going to happen. Have people not learned anything from Nov 2012. Give it right back. This woman was probably a democrat and an obama voter. Throw her stupidity back at them. Did Adam vote fot obama. Use that too. Obama voters do stupid things.
It´s appallingly clear that liberals are not the only ones who choose not to understand the heartbreaking troubles faced by the mentally ill and their families. The liberals are concerned that their rights be preserved, which means inadequate treatment and supervision, and the conservatives want to point fingers and assign blame. and every so often we have another mentally ill person, whose worrisime behavior has been ignored, go on a killing spree. Both Liberals and conservatives think there is some easy solution. Libs want to grab the guns, and Conservatives want to blame Obama and hold forth "family values." Which is a euphemism for their own fundy religious intolerance. Both are utterly wrong.
We need to review our community mental health situation, and make a higher level of care available to those whose condition warrants it.
During a segment of The View Thursday morning, host Barbara Walters expressed her concerns over politicians swearing on a Bible upon taking office, noting the importance of “the separation of church and state” as an American value. The comments came up as the View crew discussed Sen. Mark Pryor‘s (D-AR) new political ad apologizing for his Obamacare support as well as insisting that the Bible should be a guiding presence in politics. After playing the ad, actress Jane Seymour told her hosts that “I think it’s really unfortunate when you have to bring religion into politics. I think religion is
Democrats have justifiably rejoiced in the divisions within the Republican Party which hamper its ability to speak with one voice and act with unity of purpose. The tea party faction within the GOP, once an unalloyed good that propelled the party to electoral victory in 2010, has been more of a headache than a boon ever since. The conservative faction of the Grand Old Party is often credited with robbing the party of electoral victories, torpedoing bipartisan legislative deals, and elevating gaffe-prone voices that force the GOP’s moderates to adopt a perpetual defensive crouch. The temptation for Democrats to partake
NEW YORK- The Fender Stratocaster that Bob Dylan plugged in when he famously went electric at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival sold Friday for nearly $1 million - the highest price ever paid for a guitar at auction. A buyer identified only as a private individual agreed to pay $965,000, including the auction house´s fees, for the sunburst-finish guitar, Christie´s said. Dylan´s legendary performance at the festival in Rhode Island 48 years ago marked his rupture with the folk movement´s old guard and solidified his shift away from acoustic music, like "Blowin´ in the Wind," toward amplified rock, such as "Like a Rolling Stone."
In late October, Texas Gov. Rick Perry went to Israel, not a surprising trip for a potential presidential candidate whose pro-Zionist views are well known. However, less widely known is his role in a breakthrough of sorts in academia and U.S.-Israeli relations. The Jerusalem Post reported: Texas A&M University will open a branch in Nazareth by October 2015 . . . The new institution, to be called the Peace Campus, will promote coexistence for the sake of education with a student population combining Arab, Jewish and foreign students. The faculty will be drawn from Arab, Jewish and international scholars. .
Murfreesboro, N.C.- Snow came early to the cotton and sorghum fields here, sending dozens of cash-strapped families to the food bank on a recent afternoon for frozen chickens, cucumbers and canned green beans. Quinetta Rascoe was waiting for them. Wearing a bright pink overcoat, a glittery rainbow scarf and an infectious grin, Rascoe climbed out of a Toyota sedan carrying a stack of Obamacare brochures. She eyed about 60 cars that were snaking into the parking lot behind Murfreesboro Baptist Church, prompting an unusual traffic jam one block off the town´s dozy Main Street. The food truck was late, and
Los Angeles County sheriff´s detectives allege that two men stole the t-top roof panel of a $400,000 Porsche after it crashed Saturday in Santa Clarita, killing "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker and another man. The department announced Thursday that one man was in custody and that another suspect was expected to surrender to detectives soon. The one suspect, 18-year-old Jameson Witty, was arrested on suspicion of grand theft and tampering with evidence. He was being held on $20,000 bail, officials said. In a news release, the Sheriff´s Department said the alleged theft occurred while the Porsche was being towed away.
Washington -The young black university student who walked up to the microphone at an anti-apartheid rally in 1980 was, by his own admission, cynical about the virtues of political activism. Barack Obama had spent his early years of college submerged in books by African American writers by the likes of James Baldwin, W E B Du Bois and Malcolm X, wrestling with his own mixed racial identity. But it was the campaign for equality thousands of miles away in South Africa that first spurred Obama, then aged 19, into action: taking part in a divestment rally in his sophomore year
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
