Was Dear gunning for Planned Parenthood?

I cannot imagine what would be more hypocritical than a person who is opposed to killing babies in the womb but would kill people who abort babies. Yet, there are some people on the far right fringes that might go so far as to commit murder. Not many people, but some. We call those people mentally ill.

In spite of the sadness and anger felt on both sides of the political aisle over the senseless killing of three people on Saturday in Colorado Springs, there will be some liberals who are going to use a very wide brush to paint all conservatives as crazies, and will feel satisfied in their self-righteous indignation and false moral superiority over those of us who oppose abortion.

Vicki Cowart, the CEO of the Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic is claiming that the shooter, Robert Dear, held anti-abortion views. "We are learning that eyewitnesses confirm that the man who will be charged with the tragic and senseless shooting that resulted in the deaths of three people and injuries to nine others at Planned Parenthood's health center in Colorado Springs was motivated by opposition to safe and legal abortion."

Cowart calls the Planned Parenthood (PP) clinic a "health center" because she may be motivated to paint the abortion clinic in a better light--just a guess, not a fact. And to say he was "motivated by opposition to safe and legal abortion" gives Robert Dear credit for brain cells he doesn't possess.

It makes sense to question the validity of the claim that Dear was a champion of the conceived but yet unborn. He might be, but I don't trust the claim at this time. His thinking, I suspect, was influenced by the latest media videos showing PP selling baby parts. He spoke to that after he was arrested. 

There's an interesting article about Dear in American Thinker. It may shed some light on who he is.

However, if Dear killed people to stop them from killing people, then it is highly probable he is mentally ill and does not represent those of us who are pro-life. 

Cowart said, "This is an appalling act of violence targeting access to health care and terrorizing skilled and dedicated health care professionals." 

Of course it's an appalling act of violence. But to say it targeted access to health care is to stretch the definition of health beyond its meaning. Just ask the babies. Oh wait, you can't--they're dead. 

Another question is whether Dear actually targeted the "health care professionals" or the access to the abortion clinic. (See, when you call it by its major reason for existence it sounds different than the way PP would want you to hear it.) 

A law enforcement official told the Associated Press that Dear made a "no more baby parts" remark following his arrest, so yes, this gives credence to the claim that he was targeting PP. The official could not be identified due to the fact that this is an ongoing investigation--therefore, we too should be slow to judge the motivation of this deranged man.

I am in no way defending Robert Dear. He is crazy, dangerous and does not in any way, shape or form represent pro-life conservatives. I am extremely sorry for the loss of life. It's just that the soundbites of politics seems to be making an appearance. 

And just because Dear is apparently mentally ill does not change my beliefs concerning abortion and gun control issues, but normal people write about them or protest about them, they don't kill about them.

Even U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has politicized the incident saying that the Friday attack was a crime against women receiving health care services. (Not from the baby's perspective.) It is not the job of the AG to make political statements, but trying to stop a liberal from doing that is like getting a liberal president to stop a BP Gulf Coast oil spill.

Finally, people who knew Dear said he never spoke about religion or abortion, and he had few religious or political leanings. Perhaps if he had positive religious views, he would have seen his actions in a different light.

In any case, Robert Dear does not represent conservatives or any normal person.

Obama's Love Letter to ISIL

The Washington Free Beacon was told by an official of U.S. Central Command that warning pamphlets were dropped on ISIS (aka ISIL) targets 45 minutes before bombing sorties were to be flown. This was done "to minimize the risks to civilians."

This disclosure comes soon after it was learned that U.S. pilots were forbidden to drop 75 percent of their ordnance on targets lest they harm innocent civilians. The most recent dropping of warning pamphlets was on a convoy of trucks near the city of Al-Bukamal in Syria.

The leaflets read: "Get our of your trucks now and run away from them."

The original text, which was penned by President Obama, and only disclosed on this blog, read as follows:

Dear ISIL:
Unlike you, we do not wish to harm civilians in your un-Islamic war. And unlike you, our brave men and women who proudly serve in our armed forces wear uniforms to distinguish them from defenseless, unarmed civilians.
Since we cannot tell an ISIL mujaheddin fighting for the cause of the Caliphate, from a civilian member of "The Religion of Peace," we are dropping these WARNING LETTERS which will allow the civilians among you to LEAVE THIS AREA IMMEDIATELY! as our next dropping will be bombs, and we do not want to hurt of kill them.
If you are still reading this letter at this time, you have 45 minutes to get out of the area. But if the time frame we are giving you is insufficient, please let me know--you have my cell phone number.
Our bombs will only seek out empty buildings, the occasional U.S. armored vehicles you unlawfully stole from our Iraqi allies, and, Allah willing, some loaded oil tankers.
We wish no one in civilian dress any harm, and we will avoid targeting mosques and any Christian churches you have razed and plan to rebuild as a conquest mosque.
Finally, I want to assure you that our ordnance is "environmentally friendly" and will not hurt wildlife or cause undo distress.
Have a nice day.
Sincerely yours,
Barack Hussein Obama, Supreme Leader of the West
Going home
This is how we are "fighting" the war against ISIS. This is how we are going to lose if things don't change.

This is like going on a job interview and being asked: "What is your worst quality?" and you answer, "I'm lazy except for when I beat my dog."

We are not going to end up with the outcome we want and desperately need when we have a JV president who is clueless in the saddle.

Robert L. Dear, the Colorado shooter, and what we know

Now we know more about Robert L. Dear, the gunman who fired upon a Planned Parenthood (PP) clinic on Friday, killing Garrett Swasey, a six-year veteran officer at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, and two civilians. Nine others were also injured in the shootings.

Dear has a long criminal history, having been accused of domestic abuse by his wife in 1997, when they lived in Walterboro, S.C.  There is also a peeping tom charge and one for animal cruelty. Obviously, Dear, 57, is a very disturbed individual.

Dear's arrest followed a standoff with police that lasted over five hours after he began firing near a PP clinic. The charges he now faces will make the others look like jay walking offenses by comparison.

Not allowing a tragedy to go to waste, liberals, including the "Divider in Chief" are jumping on the anti-gun bandwagon and the abortion issue. The first issue is understandable, but if PP isn't merely in the business to provide abortions, why are liberals in a huff over the shooting? It probably had nothing to do with Dear being upset about PP killing babies--in fact, he doesn't seem the type. 

There is, however, clear evidence that we need to look deeper into the issues of gun laws and gun control.

If Colorado gun laws were Constitutionally in sync and civilians were able to carry (concealed or open), there might be three people alive today and Dear would have been stopped or have been smart enough not to have started in the first place. We will never know.

"We have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them," Obama said in a statement.

You simply cannot get more dramatic than calling long rifles "weapons of war." Obama wouldn't know war unless it actually involved the White House. Bows and arrows, stones and fire were weapons of war too. 

The problem isn't the instruments that can kill--that can be almost anything--the problem is our ability to monitor those who would have "weapons of war."

Dear is probably as nutty as an MSNBC anchor. People who know him say he is mostly a loner but when he spoke, he rambled on nonsensically and avoided making eye-contact. Although liberals tend to do the same, it appears that Dear is substantially crazier and should have not been able to exercise his Second Amendment rights.

One neighbor, James Russell, told the AP that he didn't recall Dear ever talking about religion or abortion, so the PP involvement may have been serendipitous talking points for liberals.

Obviously, there will be more to learn about Dear in the near future.

Regarding the criminal charges that we know of from Dear's past, the June 1997 domestic abuse charge came when his wife claimed he pushed her out of a window, and though she didn't press formal charges, she wanted it on the record.

In June 2002, he was seen by husband and wife neighbors lurking in their bushes outside their home and Dear was arrested on the peeping tom charge. He followed up by allegedly making "unwanted advancements" toward his neighbor but those charges were dropped.

In Nov. 2002 a neighbor alleged that Dear shot his dog with a pellet gun. And though Dear denied the shooting, the genius then told police that his neighbor "was lucky that it was only a pellet that hit the dog and not a bigger round."

In Sept. 2004, the same neighbor reported to police that Dear phoned him and accused him of knocking over his motorcycle and then threatened him with bodily harm.

Dear eventually moved to Swannanoa, N.C. and was charged in two other incidents, one in 2007 the other in 2011, but the police records do not specify details of those charges.

Anyone crazier than a liberal should not be allowed to own a weapon of any kind.

Our Racial Divider in Chief

Our Divider in Chief is still talking about slavery and how it is "still part of our DNA." Why is it that there are some among us who cannot stop talking about race? Why is everything they see in terms of race? 

Because it is a form of psychological projection whereby these people defend their own impulses by attributing them to others while denying them existing within themselves.

When those 9 black church members were killed by a crazy racist white man in Charleston, S.C., Obama said in an interview "Racism, we are not cured of it. And it's not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public. That's not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It's not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don't, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 or 300 years prior."

His race consultants
Nobody on the right is arguing with him that racism still exists. In fact, it probably, and unfortunately, will always exist in the human experience. But he, as the first black president (yes, I know he's "half white," but he doesn't seem to push that so much on the public) should show pride in the American people for electing him.

Is it okay for a black president to use the "n" word? Does his black skin give him the license to utter a racial slur?

No more than a Jew making anti-Semitic comments or a Christian calling a "Piss Jesus" a work of art. It's legal, but it doesn't feel okay.

Sure, there are racists in America, but not all of them are white. Many of them are people who talk about "white privilege" and hate us for being born with less melanin. That's as crazy as the slime ball who killed those dear church goers in South Carolina.

GOP warns Obama not to screw around with the climate

The Islamic State is growing in leaps and beheadings while Democrats and President Obama plan to fight the scourge of terrorism at next week's international summit in Paris on global climate. This is their number one priority in spite of the rest of the country. 

The so-called commander-in-chief wants to push for a global climate deal as he and other world leaders charge ahead at the two-week U.N. conference starting Monday. Since the balderdash will be in Paris, extra security on heightened alert will finally be on alert and in greater number after the fact of the attack that killed 130 and wounded several hundred more.

The GOP has warned our "U.S. Constitutional Circumventer" that if he tries to do any circumventing this time, they will block vital funding. Why they haven't blocked vital funding for other illegal actions Barry has taken is a mystery and the biggest reason Donald Trump is leading in the polls. People are fed up with politicians.

"I'm doing tremendous in the polls," Donald said recently. "Tremendous, Bill. Tremendous."

"What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children," President Obama hallucinated.

What planet is Obama living on? While his failure to contain ISIS, ISIL, Al- Qaeda, Al Nusra and Al-Shabaab grows, we have a president doing an "Al Gore." Americans aren't as concerned about cutting emissions and going green as they used to be, before all the killing escalated, now their biggest concern is terrorism.

I can hear Obama liberals saying: "You think you can scare us by burning pilots, killing nuns and priests, destroying churches, killing Jews and Christians, throwing gays and lesbians off tall buildings in a single bound, destroying Christian religious artifacts, attacking us at malls while we shop? 

You can't scare us one bit . . . we recycle, dammit.

Anyone who equates the dangers in climate change with the dangers in radical Islamic terrorism isn't a serious person to even waste your time discussing the situation.

Right now, the nation and Congress is divided over Obama's plans for cutting emissions. Doing so will seriously hurt the economy and particularly hurt the poorest of us as the cost of transporting goods will make prices climb. It will destroy many jobs in the coal industry, and industry that is already suffering from the myriad regulations it must comply with.

If Obama tries to draw an international agreement without seeking Senate approval, the GOP plans to stop him. Obama's goal of $3 billion for the Green Climate Fund, including $500 million in the near future to help developing nations with climate change (which, if you're a betting person would be wise to put your money on Islamic countries), would be withheld by the Senate. No vote, no money, lawmakers are telling the "Annoying One."

"Without Senate approval, there will be no money--period," Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said at last week's hearing. He stressed that any legally binding agreements must come before the Senate for a vote--something Obama would like to circumvent.

One can anticipate Obama's snide public reaction: "These folks, these Republicans, uhh, don't want clean air for, uhh,  poor folks. Maybe they're afraid of poor folks because they uhh, tend to see through those Republicans and how all they want is to bomb other folks and want to see me fail."

No, Mr. President, we don't want to see you fail. We want to see you go. And we can hardly wait.

Black Eye Friday

Black Friday is not without a number of black eyes across this great nation of ours as fights broke out in shopping malls across the country. Check out this video from Fox.

President Obama blames the brawling on the drastic changes in climate as temperatures soared into the high 30s and even the low 40s leaving no doubt that we are in for big trouble in the very near future unless we recycle and use paper in lieu of plastic.

At one mall in Florence, KY, two groups of teens went at it and a big kerfuffle broke out in front of a Forever 21 store, which coincidentally, matched the super high night time low-temperature. Video was taken of this incident which, for a change, had nothing to do with radical folks who have nothing to do with Islam. That's two "nothing to do's" in one sentence, so it must be a liberal factoid.

Elsewhere in the Bluegrass State, fists flew between two unidentified men at the St. Matthews Mall on Thanksgiving night as a crowd of fight-lovin' folks looked on. A woman who was simply looking to get a good deal of a flat-screen TV was knocked to the floor as the men fought, then finally a mall cop broke up the fracas. One of the brawlers was led away by people in the crowd and it is currently unknown if anyone will face charges.

At a Springfield, VA Best Buy, a woman was arrested the day before Thanksgiving after she attacked another shopper who was waiting in line for the store to open, police said. Apparently, the other shopper, had grabbed the last copy of "Hard Choices."

One man, a guy named Ahmad, was attacked by a woman with a chair after she tried to jump the line trying to get her hands on "Divorced Barbie." The doll normally sells for $350 but was going for $155. (The reason for the high cost is because it comes with Ken's house, car, and bank account.) The woman was later arrested after knocking Ahmad to the floor shouting "I'll Allahu Akbar your a$$, you terrorist bas#@rd!" 

So there should be no doubt in anyone's mind that as global temperatures soar, so do tempers. This is one reason Bernie Sanders and Barack Hussein Obama see climate change as the cause of terrorism and the world's biggest threat. The other reason is they happen to be idiots.

So don't forget to recycle, go green, and always remember: "if it's yellow let it mellow, but if it's brown, flush it down."

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

Hey! Give me that! I saw it first--it's mine.

Obama: "I have spoken!"

Al, Lou, and Akbar
Our Supreme Exulted Monarch has decreed Wednesday that all "57 states" do not have the right to refuse potential Islamic terrorists (aka refugees) and if they go against his orders, the leaders of his caliphate will suffer the consequences.

The decree letter from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) tells American governors that they are not permitted to deny taxpayer money to provide services and benefits to refugees based on their country of origin or so-called religion of peace and otherwise. In other words, it used to be your money and your rights but now it belongs to Big Brother.

"Accordingly, states may not categorically deny ORR-funded benefits and services to Syrian refugees. Any state with such a policy would not be in compliance with the State Plan requirements, applicable statutes, and their own assurances, and could be subject to enforcement action, including suspension and termination."

Even Canada is smart enough to realize how most of these so-called "refugees" are men of military age, as well as the age that fits terrorist profiles. So Canada is only admitting families and women with children. 

But we don't profile in the USA because that would be politically incorrect. Instead, we have a president who is going against a significantly large majority of Americans who believe that the nation's security trumps political charity. 

Even many Democrats agree, except for the hard-line robots like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

The ORR letter discussed the 1964 Civil Rights Act which prohibits discrimination based on race and national origin in all programs that receive federal funding. The Democrats like to take credit for the Act but while 6 Republicans opposed it, 21 Democrats also opposed it.

And speaking of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, you may recall a Democratic president, Lyndon Baines Johnson who discussed the '64 act with several southern governors. (WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE.) 

Johnson is alleged to have said: 

"These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they've got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference . . . I'll have them niggers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years."
Furthermore, Democrats like to say the 1964 Civil Rights Act was the brainchild of the Kennedy or Johnson administrations, but actually, it was an extension of the 1957 and 1960 Civil Rights Acts created by the Republican Party. Barry Goldwater, one of the six Republicans who voted against the 1964 version didn't like the idea that the 1964 version was totally Republican policy with Democrats taking the credit.

Back to the Syrian "refugees." Last week the House overwhelmingly approved a bill that would improve the screening for Syrian (and Iraqi) refugees. It would require a more comprehensive background check on every one of them before they can be admitted to the US and a certification that they do not individually pose a threat.

The ORR followed the administration's line saying Syrian refugees are subject to even more precautionary measures than other refugees, referring to the measures as "a multi-layered and intensive screening and vetting process involving multiple law enforcement, national security, and intelligence agencies across the Federal Government."

When Democrats have these "refugees" living in their neighborhoods, only then will I have a modicum of trust for their claims that they pose no danger to our citizens. But I will still wait eagerly for any possible repercussions that may occur based upon their poor judgment, as the results of those repercussions will impact directly upon them.

Suicide bomber to ISIS: Badahbing!

Haifa, Israel-- President Obama not only has Russian President Putin to thank for going after ISIS, now he has Al Qaeda to thank as well. A suicide bomber blew himself to pieces and took out an ISIS brigade leader in the process.

The religious act of Islamic jihad too place in southern Syria showing just how much of a rivalry exists between ISIS and Al Qaeda.
May have been killed for looking Jewish

The exploded body parts hit the proverbial fan on the ides of November during a top-level meeting of the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade. These bearded first cousins to camel dung are known for their bloody hold over much of the Golan Heights. Six of the top scumcrumpets were sent to meet their virgins, including Muhammad (really, who would've guessed that name?) "Abu Ali" al-Baridi, head of the group and also know by the sobriquet "The Uncle." This may have been due to all the intermarriages that take place among the more religious families of these pious men, and Abu was, indeed, their uncle.

Al Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, the Al Nusra Front, immediately took credit on Twitter calling the attack "heroic." Obama would have disagreed. He sees men and women who have their gender changed and strive to use toilets normally used for the opposite sex as heroic. He sees black gay basketball players as heroic. He sees traitors like Bowe Bergdahl as heroic.

"The Islamic State [ISIS], that controls the closest area to the Israel border in the Syrian Golan Heights, suffered a severe blow and lost its entire top command in the area in one fell swoop," said Alex Fishman, writing for Yediot Aharonot, an Israeli newspaper.

In spite of the fact that Al Nusra and ISIS share a common religion and common beliefs in jihad as part of that religion, and also both groups hate the same people, especially the Jews and everyone else not believing in Allah the same way they do, they are fighting the crap out of each other south of Damascus along the Israeli border. It's like junk yard dogs going at it while the cats cheer them on.

It took a while for word to get out about the bombing as it came around the same time as the Paris attacks. "We heard the sound of a strong explosion coming from the Baath Party headquarters in the village," said Abu al-Ezzam, a Jamleh resident and another Abu. "We ran to the place, and there were body parts scattered everywhere," Abu noted, speaking of the religion of pieces and what can happen to you if you're involved.

The Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade Tweeted a macho crotch-grabbing statement: "The martyrdom of the leaders will only make us more determined. Blood and sacrifice is welcome for God's sake."

Yes, they love their blood sport, don't they?
