On Friday December 14, Becky Kowalski suffered what she called the ´worst day of my life´ when she found out her seven-year-old son had been gunned down at his elementary school. But on Sunday, just two days later, she experienced the ´best day of my life´ when the boy, Chase, came to her in a vision and assured her his life had not been taken for nothing. Becky has claimed that the boy´s visit assured her that a fund set up in his honour would save lives, change building codes, foster gun control and ´bring God back to America.´
That is extremely sad. Grief and tragedy foster delusion. I hope this delusion helps this woman cope with her loss, but no credence should be given to her delusion especially since it means our inalienable rights might be restricted.
I am a true believer in "visions" having had one at my own Father´s funeral, but when one reads the kid is claimed to have championed "gun control," this mom is delusional. And saying this publically won´t make it so.
I had such an experience after my father-in-law passed away. I had an image of him telling me that he was fine and not to worry about him. One year later I found out that one of my nephews had the exact same experience on the same night. Do not belittle this woman and her vision. If you can believe in "The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost" and if you believe that we do have a soul that lives on why can´t you believe this? There is another world out there a different plane that we cannot understand but do not dismiss it as delusion. I wouldn´t be surprised if you had family and friends with similar experiences who are afraid to voice them because they would be judged as delusional. Keep an open mind. There are wonderous things happening around us everyday.
It´s probably not good that her words are being plastered all over the media during these terrible, exquisitely tender days right after this horrible thing. I know I would hardly be thinking or talking straight. I pray the peace of God, which passes all understanding, surrounds her now. Whatever she says she saw or didn´t see just isn´t for me to criticize.
I´m with #6. The problem I have with this story is that the media, Obama, Holder, et. al. with use (exploit) the mention of ´gun control´.
I will pray tonight for Mrs. Kowalski and all those parents. I will also pray that they come to understand that regardless of the instrument used, it was a sick and twisted-minded individual that killed those defenseless children and teachers.
I truly believe in visions...but did you know that the commie chinese are calling for obama to exploit this tragedy to push HIS gun controllaws to UNARM Americans...odd that this would happen now...and this vision could be used tohelp further obamas cause.
God moves in mysterious ways. I believe that with all my heart. I must say here, that God does not snuff the life of a child to make them the martyr for all things gun control. He has already given us commandments to keep and principles to live by and we have a hard time as a society living up to those ideals. If he has a message, it is not through a child appearing to an aggrieved mother to spur the passing of legislation that contradicts his agency-centered plan for our eternal lives. I am sorry for this woman´s loss, but no matter how many children are killed by lone, mad criminals, I am NOT giving up the right to protect my own family. I abide by the laws of this nation and the laws of God. Control of guns will not bring her child back and it could cost the lives of more who are left unprotected. My guns are harmless where they lay and in my hands they are also harmless to others--unless and until there is a legitimate threat to my or my family. These guns will stay where they are and we will not give them up. This woman is expected to be sad for her loss, but she should also be aware that her loss does not mean she or the government should put others in jeopardy.
I rarely speak of it. I saw my Grandfather in a clear vision after he passed. A little while later someone in the family called to tell me that he had died, but, I already knew. I hope that this lady can handle her grief.
In their anger and grief over his physical suffering, Sarah and Jim Brady did a lot of damage after he was shot during the assassination attempt on President Reagan.
The media strikes again? probably --to put words into a mom´s mouth she never said or twist them to forward their agenda. Just be glad she received the blessing of a wonderful comfort at her darkest time. The media and their Obe are s disgrace who stops at nothing to win a point. If she rebubes them she will be ignored or slammed a mentally ill for telling her experience.
I dream of my little girl a few times a year. I see her as the baby she appeared to be because she was so tiny and still so obviously retarded. She does not appear in my dreams as the 37 year old woman she would be now, cleared of all illnesses. They are dreams. I wish the press would stop going after these poor family members. Just leave them alone to grieve for a year, 10 years, 20, 30. He will always be her young boy and she will not ever want to forget him.
These visions are had by people frequently. Not as often as we might like, but I have heard too many such stories for their not to be something to it. I had such a vision after my best friend passed away. I was not dealing with her death well. She returned to assure me that she was fine and I should continue on my spiritual path. I even got a "peek" into where she was. The absolute beauty defies description. It is nothing like what they say "heaven" is like. It is far better.
Either President Obama needs a new speechwriter, or he needs a new set of economic policies. Actually, he needs both. Can anyone think of a more boring, banal, irrelevant, or stale speech than the one he gave this Thursday in Washington DC? The speech was allegedly on the economy, but more likely it was to divert attention from the Obamacare catastrophe. Whatever the motive, his idea that the defining challenge of our time is to reduce income inequality is completely wrong. In truth, the defining challenge is to restore more rapid economic growth, create substantially more jobs, and significantly reduce
President Obama on Thursday said that Republicans should be “embarrassed” that they have not done more on Capitol Hill, blaming them for Washington gridlock. “They´ve got to be embarrassed,” the president said in an interview on MSNBC’s "Hardball with Chris Matthews." “Because the truth of the matter is that they´ve now been in charge of the House of Representatives, one branch of, or one chamber in one branch of government, for a couple of years now and they just don´t have a lot to show for it.” Obama said that congressional Republicans were too fearful of offending their conservative base to
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
On Thursday, in the aftermath of South African iconic leader Nelson Mandela’s death at age 95, President Obama’s White House account tweeted a tribute to Mandela – a picture of Obama in Mandela’s Robben Island prison cell, along with a quote from Obama about Mandela: (Photo/Tweet) Even in paying tribute to a historic figure, President Obama couldn’t help but make it about him.
As President Obama wrapped up his conversation with Chris Matthews at American University, he took a swipe at the partisan media for dividing the country and making compromise more difficult. Obama said being the Commander-in-Chief for so long “makes you humbler, as opposed to cockier,” and compared himself to Sisyphus, rolling the boulder up the hill for eternity with little success. He spoke of how enthusiastic young people encourage him and give him confidence, only for the media to take that enthusiasm and use it to divide people. “The American people are good and they are decent, and yes, sometimes
Chris Matthews got his long-desired wish on Thursday, an exclusive interview with Barack Obama. The Hardball anchor didn´t exactly live up to the title of his show, wondering about Republican efforts to "make it difficult for minorities to vote" and questioning who was better, Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden? Talking to the President at American University, Matthews read a question from Twitter: "What can we do to stop the GOP, the Republicans, from rigging the states, rigging the votes, state by state, to disenfranchise voters and destroy our democracy?" The host added, "Thirty six states right now led by Republican
Wednesday night, MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews announced that his interview with the president, which is scheduled for today, gave him "the Christmas Eve excitement." Outside the left-wing fever swamp of MSNBC, Matthews is perhaps most famous to the American people for his 2008 comment about how an Obama speech put a "thrill up his leg." In his latest campaign effort to rehabilitate his sinking presidency and health care law, President Obama will sit down with Matthews this afternoon in front of a group of college students. The audience is no accident. Obama desperately needs healthy Millennials to be stupid
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.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
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
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
