(CNN) At least 19 people were killed and 26 injured in a stabbing spree at a facility for disabled people west of Tokyo, making it one of Japan’s deadliest mass killings since World War II. Nine men and 10 women, ranging in age from 18 to 70, were killed in the attack.
Officer Satomi Kurihara of the Sagamihara Fire Department confirmed the death toll at the Tsukui Yamayuri-en facility in Sagamihara, a residential area approximately 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of the capital.
Satoshi Uematsu, a 26-year-old who worked at the facility until February, broke in through a window about 2 a.m. Tuesday (1 p.m. ET Monday), Kanagawa Prefecture officials said at a news conference.
Because, as we all know — and Leftists know this best of all — if we eliminate firearms wholesale, then violence will simply plummet and go away. All will be well with the world, birds will sing, clouds will part and the sun will shine.
“What’s the frequency, Kenneth?” Dan Rather knows.
Yes, Leftists are in fact that naive. Logic and the nature of humanity, as I’ve written before, eludes the deluded.
The following table shows the number and percent of murder victims in the United States by the cause of death. Weapons used or cause of death include guns, stabbing, blunt objects, strangulation, arson, and more.
Weapons used or cause of death
feet, or pushing
1. Refers to club, hammer, etc.
2. Before 1973, includes drowning.
3. Includes poison, explosives, unknown, drowning, asphyxiation, narcotics, other means, and weapons not stated.

But let’s stop dancing around the issue of “gun control.” Let’s get down to brass tacks: Demorats and Leftists want out-and-out gun confiscation. Make no mistake about that. Hillary Clinton and all other power elites have their own private police forces. You don’t. They have “theirs” and that is all they care about.
When you get down to it, Leftists and Demorats will only be satisfied when there exists the complete removal of firearms from American citizens. The outright trampling of the Second Amendment. What’s left? Tire irons? Knives?
But here’s one thing you won’t be able to do with a knife or a rock or a lamp or a baseball bat or a torch or a pitchfork: defend yourself against a government. Oppose oppressive government regimes. Governments, all governments, our government, will always be armed with heavy, military grade weapons. Historically, our Second Amendment does not exist to allow Americans to hunt. That’s a ridiculous claim when made by anyone. The Second Amendment exists in America in order to resist tyranny in any form and that includes an over-reaching government, foreign or domestic.
Demorats and Leftists are not grounded in reality. They are only versed in power and money. The citizenry can be armed or it can be disarmed. Those who are disarmed are called Proles, Serfs, Groundlings, Commoners.
In the meantime, criminals will still commit crimes, the mentally unstable will still be unstable, and Leftists will still be unable to grasp these fundamental concepts.
It’s the customary Barack Hussein Obama response whenever guns are used in violence: gun control. We need more gun control. It’s the standard Mark I, Model I retort for Obama and Leftists and Demorats. We need more gun control — though in the bulk of these cases the suspects did not violate the law and would not have otherwise been able to be stopped. “More gun control” simply penalizes one group of persons: the law abiding, not the law breaking. This simple fact completely eludes the deluded.
There should therefore be truck control for France, pressure cooker control for Massachusetts and knife control for much of the rest of the world.
Yet the meme continues, pushed, shoved and agendized by Mr Obama, Leftists and our American Media Maggots.
In Europe, guns are involved in 36 percent of murders and knives are involved in 43 percent. Where is the cry for “knife control”?
But here’s one thing you won’t be able to do with a knife: defend yourself against a government. Oppose oppressive government regimes. Governments, all governments, our government, will always be armed with heavy, military grade weapons. Historically, our Second Amendment does not exist to allow Americans to hunt. That’s a ridiculous claim when made by anyone. The Second Amendment exists in America in order to resist tyranny in any form and that includes an over-reaching government, foreign or domestic.
We all know what occurs when you take a knife to a gun fight. The only solution to an evil person with a gun is another gun. Period. Most of these recent mass killers shoot themselves or surrender when confronted with armed resistance. They are completely aware of so-called “gun free zones.” They know what will happen when law enforcement arrives.
As the great Divider-In-Chief, here is what one of your black minions, Cleveland Brown player Isaiah Crowell, posted on Instagram.
This is but a small portion of the offensive material going out on social media against law enforcement.
Notice any similarity, Mr Obama? This is your doing sir. Your doing. I am not the only one who believes this. Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke calls Barack Hussein Obama the Cop Hater-In-Chief.
Sheriff Clarke was interviewed by Don Lemon on CNN last night and had had enough. You must watch the full interview.
Let us not forget that Black Lives Matter was created behind an outright lie — the lie of “hands up don’t shoot.” Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson had the full force of the federal government fall down on him as a host of 100 FBI agents descended upon Ferguson in order to prove him a racist, a liar, a bad cop, the outright assassin of Michael Brown.
Officer Darren Wilson was cleared entirely but his life was destroyed. He can never be a law enforcement officer again because of his perceived stigma.
Let me say that again: Black Lives Matter was predicated but upon a LIE, and consists now of mostly racist individuals whose words are murderous themselves and whose members foment and partake of violence.
As the great Divider-In-Chief and, as I am wont to say, the Racist-In-Chief, Obama is quick to conclude that law enforcement officers are swine. It is Barack Obama who stated Trayvon Martin could be his son. In one way, sir, yes, perhaps he could indeed. But not in the manner he perhaps envisioned. I don’t mean that in a good way, you see. Rhetoric uber alles, Mr Obama, for It was Obama who said “if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”
Today Barack Obama said that cops need to “admit their failures.” Perhaps you should turn that burning and accusing finger towards yourself sir and examine your own rhetoric, your own lack of leadership, your own clear biases and prejudices.
It is Barack Hussein Obama who acts without facts. As I wrote earlier:
Obama sets the tone and the pace for the administration in DC and, by dint of that, the tone for the rest of those who follow he and his fellow political Leftists.
Trayvon Martin became Barack Hussein Obama’s son. Obama didn’t have all the facts but proclaimed Martin a victim. Zimmermann was found not guilty, though Obama had already found him guilty.
Obama stated with Bully Pulpit firmness that the Cambridge Police Department “acted stupidly” in the arrest of professor Henry Gates, though Obama didn’t have all the facts. Gates, by the way, just “happened” to be a personal black friend of Obama’s.
Obama’s attitude of Officer Darren Wilson was that of guilt, though Wilson was never indicted or charged. Wilson’s life was, however, ruined forever though not convicted of any crime.
Holder had the opportunity to make a statement when Black Panthers barricaded the polls in Philadelphia with weapons they carried, but Holder refused to take any actions whatsoever.
Obama has fanned racist flames, whenever he could, in Ferguson and in Baltimore. It’s no secret that he wants to federalize police nationally.
Cops are not saints and there are racist cops. I readily admit that; I’d be a fool not to.
A black male was baldly murdered for taking leg bail on a white police officer following a traffic stop. That cop, University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing, now in fact does face murder charges for the killing of Sanuel DuBose in July of 2015. DeKalb County (GA) Police Officer Robert Olsen was indicted for murder in January of this year involving the shooting of Anthony Hill, a naked black man with PTSD. A Portsmouth (VA) police officer, Stephen Rankin, was indicted for murder in September of 2015 for the shooting death of William Chapman, a black young man, stemming from a shoplifting call at a WalMart when Chapman charged at the officer
But these are the few exceptions and not the rule. This doesn’t count Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson who was not charged at all after the shooting of Michael Brown, as well as countless other officers uncharged in various shootings around the country. This also doesn’t take into account the white males who have been shot and killed at the hands of black police officers — a fact entirely unaddressed by media.
Statistically, roughly 5% of police shootings fall under circumstances that are questionable according to the Washington Post. The vast majority of individuals shot and killed by police officers were armed with guns and killed after attacking police officers or civilians or making other direct threats. Of the 960 people killed by police in 2015, 564 were armed with a gun. 281 were armed with another weapon. Almost half have been white, a quarter have been black and one-sixth have been Hispanic.
On October 24th of last year, my department lost Deputy Danny Oliver, who was shot and killed during a suspicious person contact adjacent a motel. That same suspect fled the scene, shot a civilian, and then killed Placer County Sheriff’s Detective Michael Davis Jr a short time later. Detective Michael David Davis Jr. was killed 26 years — to the day — after his own law enforcement father was killed. Both deputies were slain by a Mexican national who had been deported twice and had drug arrests.
“The rule of law makes society possible,” Mr Barack Hussein Obama said today during a news conference regarding Baton Rouge. There is a staggering lack of leadership in this nation because of Barack Hussein Obama and, in my opinion, this is quite purposeful for the reasons via the examples I illustrated above. Mr Obama by his words and actions and continuing tendencies has set a tone and created a climate that has emboldened and empowered people to push and challenge law enforcement to the point where officers nationwide are being ambushed and assassinated outright.
Because of this “tone,” the NAACP is now calling for certain police departments to be defunded.
Mr Obama sets the tone for the nation. Tone noted. And I’m so very tired of it.
“Rule of law.” Right, Mr Obama. The same “rule of law” continuously avoided by those in power, such as Hillary Rodham Clinton, yourself, William Jefferson Clinton and any number of the political power brokers in DC, aided and abetted by Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, James Comey and others too numerous to mention.
“All animals are equal, some are more equal than others.”
“Rule of law” you say, Mr Barack Hussein Obama?
America needs to have the back of its law enforcement officers. We should be thankful for its Silverbacks and its Sheepdogs. I am still a Sheepdog.
When all you do, however, is attack your Sheepdogs, then the wolves appear in greater numbers and threaten your sheep.
While some of America was taking time, albeit too briefly, to reflect on the sacrifices made by our courageous US military personnel on Memorial Day, the city of Chicago was continuing its all-important job of killing more black people.
Because black lives don’t matter. They don’t matter to the Demorats, they don’t matter to Leftists, they don’t matter to the local Chicago politicians, and I can make an excellent argument that black lives don’t matter to blacks themselves.
An incredible 66 people were shot, although just six were killed, over Chicago’s Memorial Day weekend. The carnage pushed the number of gunshot victims well above 1,500 this year in this Democratic-run city.
One of the youngest victims was a 15-year-old girl who was killed on the city’s famed Lake Shore Drive while a passenger in a car driven by a known gang member.
Memorial Day 2016 outpaced the toll of violence for both 2015 and 2014, but not the death tolls. In 2015, 45 were wounded, and 12 deaths were recorded. In 2014, 21 were wounded and eight killed. While far more were shot this year than any other Memorial Day weekend, Chicago can take some solace that fewer ended up dead.
So far this year there have been 1,514 people shot in Chicago. Of that number, 228 have been killed by the gunfire. An additional 26 murders by other means pushed the death toll to 254. Sixty-two of those homicides happened in May.
So just who kills whom in Chicago? Let’s examine the statistics — not just from “conservative media,” but from governmental and the American Media Maggots as well.
New study shows likelihood of being shot in Chicago
by Frank Main
The study, called “Tragic, but not random: The social contagion of nonfatal gunshot injuries,” was published in the January 2015 issue of Social Science & Medicine. It shows the risk of becoming a gunshot victim in Chicago is “more concentrated than previously thought,” according to Andrew Papachristos, one of the authors.
And as was previously known, race was a key risk factor in getting shot, the study noted. For every 100,000 people, an average of one white person, 28 Hispanics and 113 blacks became victims of nonfatal shootings every year in Chicago over the six-year study period.
Are you perhaps sensing a trend here?
AllenWest.com then weighs in on some statistics — Allen West being a retired Lt Colonel in the US Army and a former Florida Representative. Who is himself black.
On average, 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012, according to the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports. Using FBI and CDC statistics, Professor Johnson calculates that 112 black men, on average, suffered both justified and unjustified police-involved deaths annually during this period.
This equals 2.5 percent of these 4,472 yearly deaths. For every black man — criminal or innocent — killed by a cop, 40 black men were murdered by other black men. The, at most, 2.5 percent of the problem generates relentless rage. And, yet, it is rude-to-racist to mention 97.5 percent of the problem.
The notion that America’s cops simply are gunning down innocent black people is one of today’s biggest and deadliest lies”.
Chicago: 75% of Murdered are Black, 71% of Murderers are Black
The numbers are horrifying
by Devin Foley
Simply put, Chicago has a massive Black-on-Black murder problem. All of the data below comes from the Chicago Police Department. You can access it here.
What stands out the most looking at both charts and knowing that 90% of the victims are male is that a lot of young, Black men are being killed in Chicago. No race comes even close to overall deaths by homicide. Keep in mind that based on 2010 Census numbers, only 33% of Chicago’s population was classified as Black.
The data on offenders also tells a troubling story: Young, Black males are overwhelmingly committing most of the murders. Based on the data on the victims, that means young, Black males are primarily killing other young, Black males. What a terrible situation.
“Black Lives Matter” have no problem with excoriating anyone and everyone not in sync with their racist mantra. Anyone suggesting — and that includes any and all Leftists — that “all lives matter” is hoisted on their own Leftist petard.
But the only logical bottom line is this: there are any number of reasons that blacks are murdering blacks at remarkable rates. Those aside, that law enforcement is a “major player” in the demise of young black males is an out-and-out lie. Repeat: a lie. Young black urban males predominantly kill young black urban males. That is a fact.
The logical extension is this: blacks continuously demand what they term “respect.” Let me state the obvious for those who cannot ken the obvious: when blacks truly respect each other, then and only then will respect be 1) given and 2) earned.
Blacks: earn it.
Law enforcement isn’t the problem in your “black community.”
May was a great month for Baltimore, if you’re a dead black male.
34 black males died in May, in the great Demorat-controlled city of Baltimore. There have been 109 homicides to date in Baltimore. Easily over 95% of the victims were black. Most all the suspects were — wait for it. . .
Just this past weekend under the tutelage of the Mayor Hyphenate, there were 27 shootings and 8 deaths. How many were black-on-black? I’ll give you one silly-willy guess.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Baltimore possesses a great number of “chocolates” as termed by Ray Nagin.
Let’s see: there are 622,000 people in Baltimore. 63% of its population is black. The Mayor is black, the Police Chief is black, the city council president is black, the council itself is 2/3rds black, 48% of the police force is black, the Police Commissioner is black. All chocolates. But here is a very telling paragraph:
“It transcends whether the mayor is black or not,” said Lawrence Brown, a Morgan State University professor and community activist. “Black people view policing as racist, and it doesn’t matter if the mayor is black, the police chief is black or the president is black. There’s a long history of brutal policing in black communities, so people don’t have any expectations.”
“Black people view policing as racist.”
And that’s a sentence you’ll be hard-pressed to overcome when it sources from people who are too many times criminals. Note to black criminals: stop committing crimes, if you don’t want to be considered or “labeled” as a criminal. Pretty damned simple. Really.
29 Shootings, 9 Fatal, Over Memorial Day Weekend In Baltimore
BALTIMORE (WJZ)–It’s been a violent weekend in Baltimore after a surge of shootings–some deadly across the city.
Amy Yensi has more.
Police say 29 people were shot, 9 of them killed over this weekend, adding to the record-breaking violence.
The shooting didn’t stop on Monday night after a 9-year-old boy and another man were both injured by gun fire in the 2900 block of Arunah Avenue. Police say the child was shot in the leg and another man suffered a graze wound to the head.
Of course, Freddie Gray was worth turning an already piece-of-crap Baltimore into an even larger piece-of-crap city, costing the city even more money and putting it in even greater debt.
Make no mistake: Demorats have been in charge of Baltimore since 1967, and since the 1968 riots nothing has been done in West Baltimore. Repeat: nothing since 1968. For 48 years Demorats have been in charge of Baltimore and apparently nothing much has happened. The city hasn’t been able to repair itself since the 1968 Martin Luther King, Jr. riots.
Thanks To Black Leaders And Black Criminals, Baltimore Has 27 Shootings And 8 Deaths This Weekend
This is the direct result of black leaders Barack Obama, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Attorney General Mosby,Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Al Sharpton, all declaring war on America’s cops, and lynching 6 Baltimore on phony murder charges.
[Prediction: those cops will be found not guilty, or guilty of much lesser charges. – BZ]
“Poverty has nothing to do with it. This madness and chaos and anarchy is a Democrat-driven culture that starts at the top with a racially-divisive White House heartbreakingly effective at ginning up hate and violence. Where I currently reside here in Watauga County, North Carolina, the poverty level is 31.3%. Median income is only $34,293. In both of those areas we are much worse off than Baltimore, that has a poverty rate of only 23.8% and a median income of $41,385. Despite all that, we don’t riot here in Watauga County. Thankfully, we have not been poisoned by the same left-wing culture that is rotting Baltimore, and so many other cities like it, from the inside out. We get along remarkably well. We are neighbors. We are people who help out one another. We take pride in our community, and are grateful for what we do have. We are far from perfect, but we work out our many differences in civilized ways. Solutions are our goal, not cronyism, narcissistic victimhood, and the blaming of others.”
But here’s the dirty little secret that Demorats don’t want you to know, in concert with their Poverty and Race Pimp abiders like Jackson and Sharpton — who continue to privately profit from race baiting:
It isn’t a “race” problem with Baltimore. It’s a Demorat problem.
Look at any busted and broken major city in the United States, and I’ll show you a city run by Demorats. Demorat, liberal, “Progressive,” Socialist policies are historically a failure. But no one wants to consider anything different. Throwing more cash at Baltimore is like throwing cash at an African tinpot dictator. It’ll never get past the government “heads.” It will never “trickle down.”
That said, as my headline asks: so where are the riots?
Blacks rioted in Baltimore following one black male dying whist in Baltimore PD custody (in which half of the cops indicated were black, with one black female officer).
Yet, blacks continue to kill blacks in Baltimore with offhand impunity.
