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!
Tea party groups and fiscal conservatives wasted no time Wednesday in savaging a bipartisan budget agreement negotiated between House Republicans and Senate Democrats, drawing an unusually angry response from House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican. All sides were rating the winners and losers in the deal struck a day earlier between House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, Washington Democrat. The modest deficit-cutting deal had some sweeteners for defense contractors and oil drillers, while air travelers, federal workers and some corporate executives would take a hit.
The White House blasted Republicans on Wednesday for criticizing President Obama’s decision to shake hands with Cuban leader Raul Castro. “There used to be a pretty important principle, that originated in the Republican Party, I believe, that partisan politics should stop at the water’s edge,” said White House deputy press secretary Joshua Earnest. “It’s unfortunate that we did see a number of Republicans yesterday who criticized the president for a handshake.” Mr. Obama shook hands with Mr. Castro on stage in South Africa at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela on Tuesday. The U.S. does not have diplomatic relations with
FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio — It doesn’t take long to realize that Jim Majoros is passionate about his job, as he ponders the hue of a new hunting rifle he’s working on. “I’m going to call it ‘Persephone,’ ” he said, referring to the Greek goddess. “It’s going to be light green in color, you know, more soft, but for women who want to hunt.” Business is brisk for gunsmiths such as Majoros, who repairs and customizes firearms in this small Lake Erie beach town east of Cleveland. This year, more than 82,000 new concealed-carry weapons licenses were issued in Ohio
House Republicans appeared Wednesday to be rallying around an $85 billion deal to avert another government shutdown, brushing off complaints from their right wing that the effort would trade immediate spending cuts for less-certain long-term savings. After conducting a series of closed-door briefings and polling members during a late-afternoon vote, GOP leadership aides confidently predicted that the deal struck between House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) would sail through the House when it comes to a vote Thursday. The moment seemed to mark a potentially significant shift by House Republicans away
A year that began with President Barack Obama riding high after his re-election victory and inauguration ends with him in the biggest hole of his presidency. A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds the president with more Americans disapproving of his job performance than ever before; with half saying they’re either disappointed or dissatisfied with his presidency; and with 54% believing he’s facing a long-term setback. Perhaps more significantly, Obama has seen a drop in key presidential attributes, such as being honest and straightforward, being able to handle a crisis and being able to achieve his goals. “These are
The federal health-care law is becoming a heavier political burden for President Barack Obama and his party, despite increased confidence in the economy and the public´s own generally upbeat sense of well-being, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll suggests. Disapproval of Mr. Obama´s job performance hit an all-time high in the poll, at 54%, amid the flawed rollout of the health law. Half of those polled now consider the law a bad idea, also a record high. The survey of 1,000 adults conducted between Dec. 4 and Dec. 8 found a sharp erosion since January in many of the
House and Senate negotiators announced Tuesday evening a $1.012 trillion two-year budget deal to replace some of the automatic spending sequester budget cuts and avert another government shutdown in January. Rep. Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, said the two-year plan is a win for Republicans since it reduces the deficit by $23 billion without raising taxes or sacrificing core conservative values. “As a conservative, I think this is a step in the right direction. What am I getting out of this? I’m getting more deficit reduction. So the deficit will go down more by passing this than if we did nothing,”
More than half of Senate Republicans facing reelection next year face potentially viable tea party challenges — a historically large threat to the GOP establishment that could, once again, kill the party’s chances of taking back control of the chamber. A surprise challenge to Sen. John Cornyn, the No. 2 GOP leader, emerged at the last minute before Texas’s election filing deadline late Monday, and on Tuesday a conservative group with deep pockets threw its financial support behind a radiologist, who has never run for office, in a primary against Sen. Pat Roberts (Kan.), a 16-year veteran. Many of the
The current continuing resolution on federal spending expires in January, and Paul Ryan (on behalf of the Republican House) has been negotiating with Patty Murray (on behalf of the Democratic Senate) for an agreement to set spending levels for the remainder of FY 2014. It is not hard to understand the political considerations that drive House Republicans: the Democrats have been threatening to shut down the government again, as a means of diverting attention from the Obamacare fiasco. Republican understandably don’t want that to happen. But in policy terms, today’s agreement, while not terrible, represents a step backward. Spending levels
Senator Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) was quick to announce his opposition to the Murray-Ryan budget deal: We need a government with less debt and an economy with more good paying jobs, and this budget fails to accomplish both goals, making it harder for more Americans to achieve the American Dream. Instead, this budget continues Washington’s irresponsible budgeting decisions by spending more money than the government takes in and placing additional financial burdens on everyday Americans. In the short run, this budget also cancels earlier spending reductions, instead of making some tough decisions about how to tackle our long-term fiscal challenges
Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) walked out of the memorial service for Nelson Mandela when Cuban “president” Raúl Castro began speaking. “Senator Cruz very much hopes that Castro learns the lessons of Nelson Mandela,” said Sean Rushton, Cruz’s communications director. “For decades, Castro has wrongly imprisoned and tortured countless innocents. Just as Mandela was released after 27 years in prison, Castro should finally release his political prisoners; he should hold free elections, and once and for all set the Cuban people free.” Earlier in the day, President Obama shook hands with Castro.
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
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place

Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats.

The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
If you go down on the ice today you´re sure of a big surprise - a rare glimpse of 20 polar bears gorging on a bloody midnight feast. These photographs show a rare cluster of males, females and cubs all dining out on the remains of a whale carcass. They spent a night and a day stripping every last morsel from the mammoth sea creature. Usually Polar bears are solitary and would never tolerate being so close to each other. But with food in plentiful supply and bellies dragging on the floor they seem too lethargic to fight.Wildlife photographer Michal
