Police praise ´heroic´ doctor and
caseworker stopped psychiatric
patient in terrifying close-quarter
after he shot dead their colleague

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Medical staff who helped stop a gunman from killing more people at a Pennsylvania hospital on Thursday have been been hailed as heroes. Dr Lee Silverman, who police say may have been the intended target, and caseworker John D´Alonzo, were able to quickly stop Richard Plotts after he shot dead their co-worker. The 49-year-old, who has a history of mental illness, was attempting to reload his gun when Silverman fired several shots, and D´Alonzo wrestled him to the ground. District attorney Jack Whelan gave new details Friday about the terrifying encounter in an office next to Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby.

Steady, ongoing effort in the US media to suppress the facts. They want to cover up the hard fact that the only thing that stops a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun. We get a bit more honest treatment from the UK press.

A man and a gun is more powerful than a man and good intentions every time.

There is a reason why those in power want to disarm the good.

Happy 18th Birthday No Global Warming!

All right, so we´re slightly premature. By one measure--according to Bishop Hill--we´re still a month away before "no global warming" achieves its coming of age. But by other measurements, as Matt Ridley notes in the Wall Street Journal, we´re already as much as 19 or even 26 years into "no global warming" "depending on whether you choose the surface temperature record or one of two satellite records of the lower atmosphere." Still, whichever measurement you pick, it´s really not looking good for the Warmists - whose stubborn ongoing refusal to acknowledge the failure of the planet´s temperatures to accord with their

Iran ´backs US military

Iran´s Supreme Leader has approved co-operation with the US as part of the fight against Islamic State in northern Iraq, sources have told BBC Persian. Ayatollah Khamenei has authorised his top commander to co-ordinate military operations with the US, Iraqi and Kurdish forces, sources in Tehran say. Shia Iran regards the extremist Sunni Islamic State (IS) group, which views Shias as heretics, as a serious threat. Iran has traditionally opposed US involvement in Iraq, an Iranian ally. However last month US air strikes helped Iranian-backed Shia militia and Kurdish forces break a two-month siege by Islamic State (IS) of the

David Cameron has committed thousands of British troops to deter Russian aggression in Eastern Europe as Nato tries to reassure its eastern members it will protect them against Moscow. The Prime Minister said 3,500 soldiers, sailors and airmen will rotate through the region on military exercises over the next 15 months. British troops will also make up as much as a quarter of the alliance’s new rapid reaction spearhead force designed to be flown into a crisis at 48 hours’ notice. Mr Cameron told the Nato summit in Newport, Wales,“Russia is ripping up the rule book with its annexation of Crimea and

The man believed to have ´decapitated´ 82-year-old Palmira Silva in a suburban garden in North London has been informally identified by locals as a 25-year old recent ´Muslim convert´, with one neighbour saying: "He was a black man young about 25 to 30 wearing all black, black t-shirt and jeans, about 5´10" and looked like he went to the gym". Police disabled and arrested the man on Nightingale Road in Edmonton, London after he rampaged through back gardens with a large, curved blade that has been described as a ´machette´. A taser weapon was discharged, and a number of police

Demonstrators seeking higher fast-food wages were cited for blocking cars on Charleston´s Spring Street Thursday in a show of civil disobedience that also played out in other American cities. Spring Street was back open midafternoon after Charleston police ticketed at least 18 demonstrators for disorderly conduct in connection with the gathering, according to organizers. [Snip] Demonstrators were seen sitting in the street while holding signs near the Septima P. Clark Parkway, also known as the Crosstown. Demonstrations also were scheduled at the Taco Bell on James Island and at the KFC and Taco Bell on Spring Street on the peninsula.

The leadership of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorist group in Syria and Iraq took a sharp blow on Thursday, as roughly 20 senior figures, including a top aide to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, were killed in airstrikes according to the Iraqi defense ministry. [Snip] It remains unclear if the airstrike was conducted by local US-trained Iraqi forces, or by the US, which has been engaged in a series of targeted airstrikes on IS terrorists in Iraq since last month. IS took a blow in eastern Syria as well, where 18 foreign jihadist senior leaders of the group,

The 45 UN peacekeepers from Fiji who were abducted by Al Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra Front rebel forces on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights last Wednesday are to "stand trial" under sharia (Islamic law), according to a Britain-based monitoring group.[Snip] It was revealed on Monday that the rebels issued three demands for the release of the peacekeepers: to be taken off the UN terrorist list, delivery of humanitarian aid to parts of the Syrian capital Damascus, and compensation for three of its fighters it says were killed in a shootout with UN officers.

On and on it goes, each detail more ghastly than the last as the tale emerges of men of Pakistani origin abusing white children in Rotherham. [Snip] It was Blair and his cohorts who decided to change the face of Britain without bothering to mention it to the rest of us and they most certainly succeeded. They opened the gates to mass immigration purely as an act of political spite to the Tories and never gave a thought to the consequences. Anyone who even murmured that maybe this wasn´t a good idea was shouted down as a racist. And heaven

CARDIFF, United Kingdom – Local businesses in Newport and Cardiff, Wales are counting the cost today of the 2014 NATO summit, after many of them recorded their most disastrous week ever. Shops, bars and restaurants emptied as regular customers avoided the two cities as a result of the colossal security operation to protect President Obama and other world leaders. [Snip] “People are avoiding Cardiff because they believe they can’t come here as long as NATO is going on. It’s like they built a fence around us. We’ve had more police in the bar than we’ve had customers.” His bar hosts

David Cameron and Barack Obama today demanded other Nato countries start paying their way by drastically increasing military spending. [Snip] The United States has by far the biggest military budget in Nato – spending more than four per cent of its GDP on defence. Out of the remaining 27 Nato members only Britain, Greece and Estonia spend more than two per cent of their national income on defence. In today’s joint article in The Times, Mr Cameron and the US President wrote: ‘By working together we are stronger, whether in standing up to Russia or confronting Isil.’

A computer server hosting information for Healthcare.gov, the flagship Obamacare website that millions of Americans have trusted with their social security numbers, income totals and other sensitive personal information, was the subject of a hacker attack earlier this summer, officials said Thursday. The federal government wasn´t aware it had been hacked on July 8 until just ten days ago. The admission is fueling fires on Capitol Hill. The powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced Thursday afternoon that it has ordered Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) chief Marilyn Tavenner to testify in a September 18 hearing about

British jihadis fighting in Syria want to come home after becoming disillusioned with the conflict, it emerged today. In the last three years, more than 500 radicalised Britons are believed to have headed out to the war-torn country, where Islamist groups are fighting President Bashar Assad´s forces. But some of those who signed up to fight have now contacted authorities in Britain saying they have had enough of the war-zone and want to return home, it was reported today.

Wednesday at a ceremony to appoint Texas lawyer Shaarik Zafar to be special representative to Muslim communities, Secretary of State John Kerry said it was the United States´ Biblical "responsibility" to "confront climate change," including to protect "vulnerable Muslim majority counties." Kerry said Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, make clear it is our "duty" to protect the planet and we should look at Muslim countries "with a sense of stewardship of earth," adding, "That responsibility comes from God."

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera. "If they think the American people will be intimidated, they don´t know us very well,” Biden said, reminding the crowd that the United States came back after 9/11 and defeated Osama bin Laden. “When people harm Americans we don’t retreat, and we don’t forget,” he said. “They should know, we will follow them

Maybe the news that a second American has been beheaded will force President Obama to recognize he has no more compelling priority today than stopping the Islamic State and its bloodletting. In its latest barbarity, ISIS aimed to project American weakness to the world. Just before he beheaded Steven Sotloff, the ISIS executioner explained the butchery this way: I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings.?.?. So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your

Up to 70 veteran USA Today journalists, editors, and others were laid off Wednesday, and reports claim that the newly unemployed were "marched out by security" and within 15 minutes had their email accounts shut off. The layoffs came as no surprise after the Gannett Company followed the lead of many other companies that have already separated and spun off their dying publishing business into separate companies. It was only a few weeks ago that Gannett did the same. USA Today is Gannett´s flagship publication and enjoys the highest circulation of any other American newspaper. Nonetheless, The New York Times reports that

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Barack Obama stands apart from other modern American Presidents in many ways. (snip)the widespread view that he is the coolest President ever. This supernal coolness is not new. In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the President wrote that in his teenage years “I tried my best to be cool at all times” (p. 82). However, leaving aside the contradiction inherent in trying to be cool, it is possible that Barack Obama’s teenage experiences may have left him psychologically, and perhaps even neurologically, incapable of performing fundamental tasks of his current position. Much of the appeal of coolness is its

The home-cooked meal has long been romanticized, from ’50s-era sitcoms to the work of star food writer Michael Pollan, who once wrote, “far from oppressing them, the work of cooking approached in the proper spirit offered a kind of fulfillment and deserved an intelligent woman’s attention.” In recent years, the home-cooked meal has increasingly been offered up as the solution to our country´s burgeoning nutrition-related health problems of heart disease and diabetes. But while home-cooked meals are typically healthier than restaurant food, sociologists Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott, and Joslyn Brenton from North Carolina State University argue that the stress that

OKLAHOMA CITY - A controversial statement made on Facebook by a state lawmaker has outraged Muslims in Oklahoma. The Islamic community demanded an apology after a state representative posted on Facebook to be "wary of Muslim Americans" and then shared a link about the ISIS brutality in the Middle East. State Rep. John Bennett of Sequoyah wrote the comments on Monday night. Oklahoma´s Council on American-Islamic Relations called on Republican Party leaders to denounce the comments on Wednesday. "I was really disappointed that someone who is elected to represent the people would put something so negative out there,” said Adam Soltani, CAIR-Oklahoma Executive
