The soldier who opened fire at Fort Hood army base on Wednesday has now been identified as Ivan Lopez, a 34-year-old married father who had just moved to Texas with his wife and young daughter three weeks before the shooting. Lopez previously served in the Army National Guard in Puerto Rico and did one four-month tour of duty in Iraq occurred in 2011. He was not wounded in action while serving overseas, but self-reported a traumatic brain injury upon his return to the U.S.

Comments:
This is terribly sad. My heart breaks for our soldiers who are suffering so much. Please pray for our soldiers, and for the families and loved ones of the victims in this tragedy.

Watch: they´re going to make this about PTSD, even though this guy wasn´t in combat, wasn´t wounded in combat, had no Purple Heart, and had not been diagnosed with PTSD.

PTSD affects about one combat veteran in five (probably in direct relation to just how much combat the vet experienced). If they can pin this shooting on PTSD, they can make it a mental disorder and refuse to allow returning veterans to possess firearms.

Seems that the medical staff treating these messed up people need to be more controlling of them...why would any sane person let a disturbed person run loose? (by the way it´s the govt´s fault people have PTSD in the first place)

When I was in the army in Vietnam during 1968 if a soldier had a close family member die back in the world they would always grant him emergency leave and expedite a plane ride back home in time for the funeral. I can´t believe that they would deny a soldier in a stateside garrison leave to attend his mother´s funeral, something is certainly not right there.

After 14 years in both the National Guard and the Regular Army he has only attained the rank of E-4, what´s with that?

Perhaps the psychological treatments are hurting more than helping, as such tragic events are continuing? Their policies need to be scrutinized.

Hundreds of thousands of soldiers going overseas are vacinated with medicines that have a warning label: MAY CAUSE PSYCHOTIC EPISODES.

Then, we are shocked when soldiers manifest psychotic episodes.

"Self reported" injury... but was it self-inflicted ?

And why oh why are the media so capable of investigating and reporting with such excruciating detail on this one particular individual, but after six years, we still know relatively little about this soldier´s commander-in-chief?

Store Ignores Obvious Signs,

Anti-Gun Policy

A furniture store in Takoma Park, Maryland that calls itself a “Weapons Free Environment” took its policy a bit too far on Independence Day. That’s when a loss prevention officer at IKEA approached Alan Goldberg, who carried a visible, holstered firearm into the store, telling him he would have to leave the premises or place the weapon in his vehicle, according to NBC Washington. The request caught Goldberg off guard: he is Takoma Park’s chief of police, and he was in uniform during his visit.

Immigration Criminal Voted for Gun Ban

One of the chief concerns of America’s Founders in the early days of the Republic was the possibility that foreigners would usurp American political power. As Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 68, “[the] most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally be expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain improper [ascendancy] in our councils.” The possibility that foreigners might gain political power and subvert traditional American values is even more acute in today’s climate of mass illegal immigration.

Theological Rabies in the
Presbyterian Church USA

Francis Schaeffer once said, "Tell me what the world is saying today, and I’ll tell you what the church will be saying in seven years." Schaeffer, a theologian, may have been off by a few years, but he certainly predicted the future of the Presbyterian Church USA, which has now embraced just about every single leftist ideological tenet. The PCUSA has joined the drift to the Left that for decades has characterized other Main Line entities such as the Episcopal and Methodist churches. But it is a bit of a surprise to see the PCUSA has recently warmly embraced anti-Semitism. As Mark Tooley reports in the American Spectator,

SCOTUS Smacks Obama Again, But. . .
Power Line, by Steven Hayward    Original Article
Posted By: ScarletPimpernel- 6/26/2014 4:17:52 PM     Post Reply
Today the Supreme Court ruled unanimously against the Obama Administration’s abuse of the recess appointment power in NLRB v. Canning. Unanimous! And not for the first time. Think back to Sackett v. EPA two years ago, where a similarly unanimous Court ruled that the EPA had grossly exceeded its legal authority, or the Utility Air Regulatory Group decision on Monday, which, although 5 – 4, held that the EPA can’t simply re-write the Clean Air Act to suit its convenience. The Obama Administration would seem to be faring poorly before the third branch.

Conservatives can be forgiven for believing the political winds are at their back. Obama is flirting with historically low approval ratings as much of the public simply tunes him out. Democrat-backed policies have failed to lift the economy and public anxiety about the limits of government activism grows. Conservative challengers will do well enough this primary season to argue that the "tea party" is alive and well. Behind the scenes, though, the left is retooling and the conservative movement seems unequal to the challenge.

America is Importing the Problems

Sorry to be crude, but for all intents and purposes, America is currently the victim of a national rape, figuratively speaking – what our nation is experiencing on the southern border is a corporate violation. Moreover, being implanted in the womb of what was once a sovereign nation complete with boundaries and laws is an uninvited presence that, if it were a fetus, pro-choicers would heartily applaud terminating. Instead, liberal pundits and politicians alike contend that America should never turn children in need away.

Sgt. Bergdahl´s Post-Dramatic Stress

It is likely that many people will die young because Bowe Bergdahl chose to act out a childish, grandiose fantasy in which he cast himself as a wise and courageous man of mystery and adventure. Both his parents and the American taxpayer supported Mr. Bergdahl to play pretend soldier with a script that reads like a cheesy story for eleven-year-old boys. In Bergdahl’s feverish imagination, which he was tragically allowed to enact, he was a magnificently skilled survivalist who also solved the problem of war in his environmentally and socially sensitive walk about the new world order.

The House of Representatives of the United States will very likely swear in this fall a former Randolph-Macon College (R-MC) economics professor, Dr. David Alan Brat -- or Dave Brat, as he prefers to be called. In a stunning upset whose shock waves have yet to be fully felt or understood, Brat handily defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Evidently taken aback by this unexpected and unprecedented outcome, Cantor failed to include the obvious in his concession speech: “I congratulate my opponent and promise to work to elect him in the fall.”

Wannabe Gangsters Just ´Tryin´ to Eat´
When Killed During Break-In
American Thinker, by John Bennett    Original Article

After breaking into an elderly widow’s house twice in a row, two teenagers were killed by an armed occupant, in self-defense. Steven Crider, 17, and Michael Sambrano, 14, were shot in the chest numerous times after breaking in to the widow’s home. Now, the dead thieves’ friends and family are publicly complaining that “it was wrong that they were shot” and that the thieves were just “tryin’ to eat.” Everyone needs to eat, but how many people actually need to steal in order to eat? The number must be extremely small.

From Fast and Furious to Benghazi, and from the IRS to the VA, the national media has assiduously covered President Obama’s tracks from start to finish, and is no doubt preparing to do the same for possible presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Having heard enough, Sarah Palin this week let the media have both rhetorical barrels over their partisan covering for know-nothing Democrats, as highlighted on the Drudge Report.

Did President Obama lawyer up in anticipation of Judicial Watch’s release of the Benghazi e-mails? On April 29, Judicial Watch announced that it had obtained the “smoking gun” e-mail on April 18, 2014 – days before Obama announced that Neil Eggleston would replace Kathryn Ruemmler as White House counsel to the president. Politico reported on the switch and made mention of Eggleston’s role in the Whitewater investigation during Clinton’s first term, as well as his ties to Obama’s former White House chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel.

Who is Harrison J. Bounel, and might the name suggest something about possible Obama ID fraud? To be sure, healthcare.gov’s failure to verify Obama’s identity implies nothing whatsoever as to whether ordinary citizens should question it. Undoubtedly, the system glitch represents nothing more, and nothing less, than yet another instance of racist computers conspiring against Obama. The Harrison J. Bounel controversy revolves in part around the fact -- contested by no one -- that a personal information database, housed in yet another presumptively racist computer, linked Obama’s Hyde Park Chicago home address and SSN with the name “Harrison J. Bounel.”

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B.
