As president heads to
Newtown, stories of heroism,
courage and brutality emerge
in wake of shooting

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang and David Eldridge

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/15/2012 10:47:23 PM

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

Hopefully all of the families will be "allowed" to attend.

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.

He had best be very careful how he handles this grief....

If it becomes a photo/op -- shame on him....

If it becomes a spinning point for gun control -- shame on him....

Be very careful how you handle this. In fact -- don´t handle it. Just comfort low/key and leave...

The grieving parents have every right not to talk to him. I hope they exercise it.

We can always count on this sociopathic bumbler to do the wrong thing. I know it´s Alinski´s teachings but it only works when the target doesn´t know Alinski too.

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.

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?

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.

Not Obie´s screwup?

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.

How do those comments square with this:

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.

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 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!

May it be so and the sooner the better. Amen

Did Justice Kagan embarrass herself

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans, according to a poll conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The long conflicts, which have required many troops to deploy multiple times and operate under an almost constant threat of attack, have exacted a far more widespread emotional toll than previously recognized by most government studies and independent assessments:

Witnesses: Marine flashed security

Military officials said they are investigating the conduct of a U.S. Marine who was on assignment for President Obama’s trip to the Netherlands last week, after witnesses said he was talking in detail about his job and passing around his government security badge during a night of drinking at a bar. The Marine, Korey Nathan Pritchett, was first identified by a Dutch newspaper based on witness accounts and smartphone photos taken during the partying, which happened two nights before Obama arrived at The Hague for a nuclear security summit. The Washington Post confirmed and expanded on that reporting through interviews,

TBILISI, Georgia Halfway through an otherwise coherent conversation with a Georgian lawyer here — the topics included judges, the court system, the police — I was startled by a comment he made about his country’s former government, led by then-president Mikheil Saakashvili. “They were LGBT,” he said, conspiratorially. What did that mean, I asked, surprised. Were they for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights? For gay marriage? Were they actually gay? He couldn’t really define it, though the conversation meandered in that direction for a few more minutes, also touching on the subject of the former president’s alleged marital infidelity,

Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi just might be a racist monster who wants to murder live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Why would I say such an outrageous thing? Because Pelosi has accepted an award named for Margaret Sanger. And Margaret Sanger was definitely a racist monster who advocated murdering live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Quote: The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. That’s advocating child murder. It’s not racist, but we’re not done. Sanger considered racial minorities to be “human weeds.” In context,

Hillary 2016 Run May Be Sabotaged

Barring a miraculous upsurge in President Obama’s dismal 41% approval rating, Hillary Clinton’s run for president in 2016 will be a steep uphill climb. Clinton will need to walk a political tight rope, distancing herself from Obama without coming across as a disloyal member of the president’s political coterie. "Secretary Clinton is distancing herself a bit on foreign policy matters from the administration recently," said John Hudak, a Brookings Institution fellow and expert on presidential campaigns. "This is a pretty standard practice for anyone looking to succeed the sitting president, even within the same party." Nevertheless, Hillary enjoys the fruits

Big Win for Women in Texas

A federal appeals court Thursday handed women in Texas a big win by upholding health and safety regulations that had been challenged by Planned Parenthood. Last year Texas passed a law that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital no more than 30 miles from where the abortion is provided. The appeals court quoted a board-certified Ob/Gyn who explained that requiring admitting and staff privileges “provides a more thorough evaluation mechanism of physician competency” and “acknowledges and enables the importance of continuity of care.” The appeals court explained that the “specter of Dr. Kermit Gosnell” informed the

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, in a closed-door address to a group of Republicans this week, issued a spirited defense of a broader role for the U.S. in the world, saying President Obama’s leadership has left a vacuum that’s been filled by “dictators like Bashar al-Assad in Syria and Vladimir Putin in Russia.” Speaking at the National Republican Congressional Committee’s annual fundraising dinner on Wednesday, Ms. Rice also said the party needed to embrace a softer image on immigration and declared school choice “the great civil rights issue of our time.” But she spent the majority of her time

When Sen. Ted Cruz was in the middle of his 21-hour filibuster, he had already read “Green Eggs and Ham” to his children via C-SPAN, found himself killing time and needed a way to praise his fellow filibusterist, Sen. Mike Lee. So he tapped into his actor’s training and summoned up his best Darth Vader impression. It was the impressionistic coming-out for the Texas Republican, who has since trotted out his versions of Jay Leno, Winston Churchill and fictional swordsman Inigo Montoya from the movie “The Princess Bride.” The impersonations have sparked laughter and applause from audiences and have added another

“The United States does not view Europe as a battleground between East and West, nor do we see the situation in Ukraine as a zero-sum game. That’s the kind of thinking that should have ended with the Cold War.” — Barack Obama, March 24 Should. Lovely sentiment. As lovely as what Obama said five years ago to the United Nations: “No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation.” That’s the kind of sentiment you expect from a Miss America contestant asked to name her fondest wish, not from the leader of the free world explaining his foreign policy.

The Supreme Court searched Tuesday for ways to let women get birth control without the government forcing their employers to cover the cost, as justices tried to balance business owners’ religious rights against allowing religious objections to a broad range of public policy issues. Justices touched on abortion, the limits of federal power and details of birth control, but the case centering on the Hobby Lobby craft store chain likely will come down to whether the court believes for-profit companies and their owners can claim a moral conscience objection to paying for employees’ birth control. The court’s liberal members —

The Washington Post is reporting that the Obama administration will give extra time to Americans who say they are unable to enroll in health-care plans through the federal insurance marketplace by the March 31 deadline. According to the Post, consumers who have begun to apply for coverage on HealthCare.gov, but who do not finish by Monday, will have until about mid-April to ask for an extension. To take advantage of this extension, consumers need only check a box on HealthCare.gov to indicate that they tried to enroll before the deadline. The government will make no effort to determine whether, in

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit.

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the
