EXCLUSIVE: Gunman´s ´survivalist´ mother was OBSESSED with guns and stockpiled supplies as she planned for economic collapse before son shot her in the face while she lay in bed Daily Mail [UK], by Daniel Bates & Hayley Peterson
The mother of Newtown school massacre gunman Adam Lanza was a survivalist who was stockpiling food because she thought the world economy was on the verge of collapse. Nancy Lanza began hoarding food and water because she feared that the onging financial crisis was going to bring about the end of civilized society. She reportedly became ´obsessed´ with guns and taught Adam how to shoot, but on Friday in a grim twist he blasted her to death while she laid in her own bed. Law enforcement sources told the Hartford Courant that
Comments: Fox reported this morning that the murderer destroyed all of his computers. If this guy was so unstable I´m not sure exposing him to all these guns was the most responsible thing to do.
Sooo, if she was suffering from end-of-the-world-itis because of our financial meltdown, doesn´t that make Zippy and the ´Rats who have caused and accelerated that meltdown "responsible" for the massacre?
Obama has failed to employ the strategies that create a vibrant and growing economy. Thus the shooter´s mother became concerned the economy was going to collapse and stocked up on ammo and purchased guns for protection from the hoards of "takers" she expected would roam the neighborhoods once the government entitlements ceased. Her troubled son took the guns and killed all the people.
Conclusion: it´s all Obama´s fault for his failed programs that started it all.
As obama continues to pursue his destructive agenda, the sense of impending doom this woman felt will become more justified and more common. The woman´s personal convictions are hardly relevant. The fact that she let her son have access to her weapons seems to me to be the crux of the matter.
How many of these episodes could have been prevented if the perpetrator´s mother wasn´t blinded by maternal devotion?
The mothers fears were not irrational but her solution was imprudent. #7 & 8 have it right. When the president fails in his basic duty to keep the citizens safe and is constantly stirring up class warfare in pursuit of his political objectives it will make the targeted people in the population nervous and that is when chaos breaks out. The president should stop all his talk about various groups in the population. There is only one distinction that counts - American citizens and aliens. That is one distinction he refuses to make!
I am not convinced she left the gun case open or let the kid have access to the guns. Knowing him, he could have easily held a knife to her throat and forced her to open the gun case. Before she could call the cops, he shot her dead.
I think he would rather see that the Palastinians are safe, poster 12, than to keep Americans safe. Sharia law is coming. It may be a while but is is coming this way. A good share of muslim families that already live here think our courts should let it be integrated into our court system.
This is just another trip to fantasy land with a media desperate to be relevant. Until the police reports are out, it´s all conjecture all the time, by the media.
So, what was her political affiliation? They keep trying to imply that Mrs. Lanza was a kookie conservative redneck- gun enthusiast, prepper, homeschooler. However, her location, home and lifestyle, leave that open to question.
Was she a liberal? Let´s be honest, if she were conservative, we´d know that by now, but it would explain, if she were a Zero supporter, why they are so desperate to paint her and a kook.
here we go. the script is becoming more clear. she was ´´obsessed´´ and a ´´survivalist´´. she was the risk. now I got it.
all we´re hearing is second hand info, and that may be all we ever hear since both mother and son are now dead. no one is saying whether or not the weapons were secure in a gun safe. and if that is true, perhaps the son had the combination. she ´´told a friend´´ that she was afraid she was losing the boy. since he hadn´t demonstrated any aggressive behavior a reasonable person would assume she meant that he was becoming even more introverted and was pulling away from her psychologically. if she was indeed so concerned with safety and survival, I´d bet that she was not careless with firearms. I have to believe (until facts are made much more clear) that she didn´t have a clue her son was this dangerous...
We should all know by now that the maintream media is worthless reporting a story like this one as it is their "DUTY" to exploit any story they report on to further a Lefty agenda and to protect Obama. I agree with others Obama has only himself to blame for scaring the majority of Americans with his Marxist agenda and class warfare. Obama is to blame for this woman´s worried mental state. The woman´s son was a mentally ill sicko that probably nobody could help.
The poor woman who was murdered by her own son is not even buried in the ground yet and her character is already being assasinated. For shame!. Her only mistake was not properly securing her firearms from her son who clearly had some mental health issues. This whole tragedy and the three preceeding tragedies were failures of our mental health system. We dont need any additional laws. More than enough of them were broken already.
If she were really disposed as stated in this article, you would think that she would have sold her high value property in ultra liberal Connecticut and moved into the mountains in someplace like Idaho, where a lot of her survival minded kindred spirits are holding out.
I think that before passing judgment on her it is prudent to wait until the emotional smoke clears, and see what her ex-husband and surviving son, along with other family members and acquaintances have to say.
I think it´s time this news organization became not credible for posting. No evidence any if this is true. Feels too much like, "LOOK! A Tea Partyier!" With absolutely nothing but rumormilling and hype.
Either the mother, the medical professionals or both, failed to adequately identify and/or deal with the killer´s mental illness.
It is only coincidence that she was a single mother who was concerned about the safety and financial future of herself and her child in this quickly deteriorating 0bama economy. There are a lot of us who share those concerns.
This is simply another opportunity for the left to add to their narrative that those who refuse to rely on the government to provide for them and protect them are somehow less than mentally balanced and a threat to the national security.
Those people who are aware of the insane debt Obama is racking up, recognize the unsustainable nature of the Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Obamacare, food stamps and welfare programs and extrapolate to the inevitable bankruptcy of this country necessarily followed by a societal meltdown when all those state dependent people are left stranded with no means of support and who don´t prepare to defend, feed and shelter themselves are oblivious to potential disaster.
So which is worse, being obsessed with survival or being oblivious to a possible disaster?
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
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
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
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.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
