Hot Air, by Mary Katharine Ham

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/4/2013 5:05:48 AM

The bizarre attack at the White House and Capitol today was reportedly perpetrated by a 34-year-old dental hygienist licensed in Connecticut. Miriam Carey, who was killed by law enforcement after ramming White House barricades and fleeing to the Capitol, had a toddler in the car with her, according to New York Post reporting: Sources said Miriam Carey, who formerly lived in Brooklyn, was licensed to practice in New York and Connecticut and had a permit to work as a hygienist in Connecticut prisons. At least a dozen gunshots were fired when she tried to flee cops, who had trapped her two blocks

I don´t understand why there isn´t a big fuss about the police behavior. The woman wasn´t shooting; she didn´t have a gun. They needed to stop her car, not kill her. Why didn´t they shoot her tires? They were very close to her; it wouldn´t have been that hard.

There is something very troubling about the police response. It just doesn´t seem right. There was a good two or three seconds when they had her car surrounded before she took off the first time. The police couldn´t have been more than two or three feet from the car. Why not shoot the tires out? It would have slowed her down. Of course, I am not familiar with police procedures. Maybe they feared the car was packed with explosives. Something just seems fishy about this whole situation.

Hear, hear posters. Why in the world would they shoot at her? She was probably having a psychotic episode. Think they were trying to shoot out her tires and missed by about a mile? Good grief! Of course, you probably couldn´t get fired from the Capitol Hill or D.C. police if you were blind and deaf. Or maybe it was the Not-so-Great Caesar´s Praetorian Guard.....

Reminds me of Ruby Ridge, Waco, Ellia and on and on. They killed this woman, who was apparently unarmed -with a CHILD in the car - but they were told to "stand down" at the Navy Yard???? What is going on with the cops in D.C.???

I smell a LOT of tort lawyers coming.

I bet Obama is hiding under his bed. And may he live that way the rest of his life.

And yes, we need to do something about the mentally ill.

Don´t tell me they didn´t see that baby girl in the back seat when they converged on her car, yet they still shoot at her vehicle like it´s some Hollywood movie. You know they were all sh´ing bricks back at the station afterward; anyone could have been killed on that street, including one of their own!

And remember everyone, don´t lose your "stuff" anywhere near 0bama or you´ll be taken out.

I find the police action appalling and I favor law-and-order. I also favor putting mentally ill people in the hospital for treatment and not letting them out to drive around with baby´s in their car.

The problem starts with the failure of the Secret Service police to properly operate the security perimeter barricade systems.

Everything that follows that THEY say about it is a police coverup.

Her body was still warm when we had ABC telling us she had a history of mental illness. So how did they know her name? Did the cops do a car tag check on the vehicle while she was cruising up Pennsylvania avene?

Subsequent reports are that she was not known to have had any mental treatment or examination for mental illness. So, what was ABC talking about? Why did the cops say she was crazy? Is this Gnarls Barkley´s girl?

I think not.

And shooting at the baby? They knew there was a baby girl in the car ~ or at least a child carrier ~ so they waited until she got out of the car to shoot her 15 times? Obviously some problems in that story line. The cops were shooting at her and each other all along the line of travel ~ because of that I doubt we´ll ever know the truth ´cause there are some guys who will lie because there are other cops involved.

Arm chair police out in force today. Asking why police didn´t just "shoot out the tire" is like asking why police don´t just shoot an armed suspect "in the leg". Its a dynamic situation, where split second decisions have to be made.

In todays world, where bad guys/terroists frequently use vehicles to ram and then detonate their target, it is not unimaginable to believe that these officers thought that what was going down. Police country wide train for that exact scenario.

What if this WAS a terrorists incident and the vehicle exploded, killing dozens? Would you folks be here commenting on why the police didn´t shoot the vehicle up full of holes??

I´m not gonna castigate these guys until more details emerge.

Who is whispering in these peoples´ ears to go do what they do? Call me any kind of conspiracy nutjob you want. Something is very wrong in our nation and these situations.

If you´ve ever driven around DC you know that it can be confusing even for people who live and work around there. It would not surprise me if she got confused and pulled in somewhere she shouldn´t have, or was trying to get directions, then suddenly found herself surrounded by aggressive police and just freaked out. The multitude of police in DC then did what they do best and overreacted to a situation that should not have ended with shots being fired. I think there´s a lot more to this than meets the eye and all entities involved are in full threaten/coverup mode.

´´Police country wide train for that exact scenario.´´ And woe unto any of us who happen to trigger their automatic response. Beware of any people who have given up their own reasoning ability in order to serve their masters. Do I want the protection of police or military people who fit that description? No, thank you. The death of innocents at their hands isn´t worth it. And how many of those shooters who killed that woman yesterday will be haunted by that act for the rest of their lives? And the lives of their loved ones will suffer. So many will hurt for so long from the fear that caused them to respond blindly.

Re#18:"Arm chair police out in force today." So, I take that to mean that if one is not a police officer, then having an opinion of the actions of the police officers who ostensibly work for us is not allowed. Once we have hired these people, armed them with FULLY automatic weapons (not the semi-autos that we humble subjects of the crown are allowed) , given them armored vehicles and dressed them up in their black ninja outfits; we are to give them carte blanche to do whatever moves them at the moment, and, since we are not members of the Brotherhood of the Badge, we are forbidden to even comment on their actions? Did I get that straight? Only cops can criticise cops? Really?

Yes, I know: "They are out on the dangerous streets every day". Well, we peasants are out on the same dangerous streets every day, too. Except WE are usually unarmed, unarmored and without backup. What we are told to do is call 911 and wait for the ninjas to break away from knocking down the door of the wrong house and hosing the occupants long enough to come and draw a chalk outline around us.

And if she´d aimed that 2,000 deadly weapon at the sidewalk and mowed down a dozen or so innocent citizens, would everyone be singing from the "Cops Killed An Unarmed Woman, hymnal?

No, I think the hue and cry would have been something along the lines of, "Lousy danged cops couldn´t even act before a crazy woman killed a dozen people."

Damned if they do, damned if they don´t.

So now every incident that occurs is automatically deemed mental illness? Really? Or is that just a cloak? Only Obama would be so afraid of a woman and it shows how trigger happy DC police are protecting the poseur. I´ve always believed deadly force is justified only if the perp did harm or was about to harm someone. Can´t definitely say that was the case here, yet. Cops lie sometimes about someone being threatened with car violence to justify their shooting actions. Check some of the executions on youtube sometime during traffic stops.

These weird things that keep happening echo what #20 says: Every time Obama´s back is up against the wall, he has reason to be very angry or someone has made him the no-clothes emperor once again these things are happening. Do they have these psychos in line, ready to go, to unleash on the public as Obama vents and delivers a vendetta? Their deeds ending it death make it the perfect crime every time: Dead men/women tell no tales.

No time to read the whole thread, but they reported on Fox a while ago that she was being treated for schizophrenia since the head injury she suffered a while back. Her boss said she had a "significant head injury" when she fell on some stairs, and had to be hospitalized. While in hospital she found out she was pregnant. Baby was born in August 2012, so do math.

Were the DC Cops in this incident "Trigger-Happy Goons" or "heroes" protecting Der Fuehrer Obama? Answer: Trigger Happy Goons.
The DC cops executed that woman for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and acting erratically. It is a miracle that baby in the car was not hurt. Nothing professional about shooting wildly into a car with a baby in the back seat. We´ll never know who gave the order to "Stand Down" in Benghazi, or who ordered the trigger-happy cops to "Shoot To Kill" the unarmed woman in the car. Sad but that´s the regime we are living under. Remember, The New Black Panthers were
telling us "Now you will know what it is like to be ruled by a Black Man". Yes we know, now, and it ain´t pretty being ruled by a half-black idiot.

Dear Clueless Ones:

They shot her because she was using her cars a weapon.

That they failed to effectively box her car in at the circle in front of the Capitol is inexplicable and unforgiveable. If they had a freaking clue and had boxed her car in with their cars, the ensuing chase would not have happened. The Republicans will be blamed for the absence of anyone among the Capitol Police who could tell their butt from a hole in the ground.

We need to have a ZERO BS TOLERANCE ZONE around the White House and the Capitol and the Supreme Court. Shoot first, and ask questions later.

Story in the New York Post states that the lady had a good job, making $100,000 a year as a dental hygienist, until her head injury and subsequent dismissal due to being too rough with patients. Her sister is a retired NYPD sergeant, and neighbors say she was a smart, good person.

Did they have to shoot her? I don´t know, but she did have a baby with her, you would think they would have tried to stop her some other way.

I heard one analyst explain that only in the movies do cops shoot out tires or try for a leg shot. He said real cops shoot to kill and blast the car in that effort. What would have happened if that car was packed with explosives? Could a bullet have blown cars, cops, and the Capitol to kingdom come? I really would not want to be in the same county as one of these shoot outs.

Washington Post, by Paul Kane    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:08:09 PM     Post Reply
It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews ´ordered to register and list property´

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

Nothing to see here folks, move along. That was the verdict of Mayor Marty Walsh and Police Commissioner William Evans on the latest “performance artist” to plunge the city in turmoil. So what if they had to shut down the Green Line and “detonate” said artiste’s attack backpack Tuesday night on Boylston Street? “There was no breach of security,” said the mayor yesterday. Of course not.

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying. Even when a part of the science of flight

Max Blumenthal, like others on the far-Left, jumped on the July 2011 Norwegian massacre of 77 dead and 319 injured to impugn the counter-jihadi right. His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change causing fish to

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
