Knife control: Japanese man kills 19, injures 26

When-Rocks-Are-OutlawedHad that occurred here in America, Barack Hussein Obaka and Loretta Lynch and Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom and all the rest of the Leftists would still be bleating about gun control.

From CNN.com:

Japan knife attack: At least 19 dead

by Euan McKirdy and Emanuella Grinberg

(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.

Gun-Control-at-the-Bar

“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.

When firearms are eradicated, violence will cease.  Right?  But wait; what about Australia, where gun deaths are down but knife deaths are climbing.  Why might that be?  Let’s glance at China, where a knife is the weapon of choice and 130 persons were stabbed at random36 persons were stabbed and killed at a Chinese police station in 2013Eight children were killed by a knife-wielder in JapanEight people killed in South Korea41 people were stabbed by a 16-year-old in Berlin.  A 13-year-old girl was stabbed to death in the UK.  The knife is the UK “weapon of choice” for violence, as it is in Israel with Palestinians stabbing and killing Israeli citizensFBI data indicates you are more likely to be beaten, clubbed or stabbed to death than to be murdered using an AR-15 or any other rifle in the United States.

In Europe, guns are involved in 36 percent of murders and knives are involved in 43 percent.  Where is the cry for “knife control”?

Locally, there were a number of knife attacks last year.

Some other interesting statistics.

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.

Obama keeps the US safe with sarcasm and MORE refugees

Obama DANGEROUS to AmericaI wrote on Friday about Mr Obama’s plan to fight ISIS: words.  Sarcasm.  “You are not strong.  You are weak.”  There.  Mission accomplished.  ISIS fleeing in terror.

But wait, there’s more.

Obama plans to keep America safe by battling ISIS with words, AND he plans on importing more “refugees” into the United States.

That Mr Obama, what a courageous man.

He made the announcement on Easter.  Good timing.

From the WashingtonExaminer.com:

Obama reiterates refugee promise

by Nicole Duran

In a brief Easter weekend radio address, President Obama vowed to decimate the self-proclaimed Islamic State, but he said the United States will do so by offering an example of freedom, tolerance and open society.

“Our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL’s violence; our determination to win the battle against ISIL’s hateful and violent propaganda — a distorted view of Islam that aims to radicalize young Muslims to their cause,” are paramount in the fight, Obama told Americans during his weekly radio address.

Admitting entry to Syrian and Iraqi refugees has become a divisive issue in the U.S. as well as Europe, but Obama made clear he has no plan to back off his promise to admit 100,000 to the U.S. this year.

Let me emphasize: Obama said he will “promise to admit 100,000 to the US this year.”

Please see the graphic below which delineates where these refugees will be placed.

Syrian Refugees to USMy stance is this: no refugees to the US.  No children.  No women.  No men.  No families.  But particularly no children.  The children and all refugees need to stay in their country of origin with family.

Why?  This is our country.  It belongs to us and no one else.  We have sovereignty and we get to keep it.  We are the determinants of who will or will not enter our country.  We get to ensure the sovereignty and safety of our citizens.  It’s a duty.  It is the duty of our federal government to keep its citizens safe.  That is its highest priority.

The United States cannot be the recipient of the world’s human outcasts and refuse and hope to continue.  Germany is already making this discovery and Merkel, by her insane decision to allow “refugees” to storm their border unimpeded, has placed her entire country in jeopardy.  In jeopardy of not just never looking or being Germany again, but in jeopardy of placing itself into November of 1923 all over again.

Whatever occurs in Germany from this point on can and is directly attributable to Merkel’s decision to flood the nation with persons who seem to have little if any interest in assimilation.

Assimilation in the culture, immersion in the language, participating in the host country’s customs — those are the least of the things you as an immigrant owe your new nation.

These things are primarily not occurring in Europe, with terrible consequences the result.

Pundits in the US brag that the major difference between Europe and the US is the assimilation that does occur here.  I should care to point out, however, that participating in American culture is occurring with greater infrequency if for no other reason that not only don’t we, for example, encourage the learning of English but, many times, we discourage it and enable immigrants to hold to their own.  We do this out of GOWP political correctness.

Two massive reasons for what I would argue as a major necessary clamp on immigration — which I wholeheartedly advocate — are the issues of employment and budget.

The bulk of persons immigrating to the US bring no inherent skills with them.  Most are unskilled individuals from poor environments and backgrounds where the aptitudes required for our future of our nation are not possessed.

Our nation will have a sufficiently difficult time ensuring our own lawful citizens can transform into the New Work Paradigm — much less having to take in persons whose background and capabilities fall behind those of our own.

The demand for a $15 an hour “living wage” (along with technology itself) is driving the push for jobs requiring menial skills to be automated.  Those persons thinking that clicking the CHEESEBURGER icon at McDonald’s will guarantee them anything more than a few extra fries per shift are deluding themselves.

Those jobs that can be automated will.  Persons who lack skills or, for any number of varied reasons, are unemployable will find themselves unemployed.  And many of today’s Americans are completely unemployable, unable to cope with the most minimal amount of discipline or diligence.

Add to that the vast potential amounts of refugees who bring nothing to the employment or culture table, and you have a recipe for another Europe in the midst of America.

Those persons who lack skills or are unemployable will then, of course, demand and apply for various forms of largesse.  The pool of those paying taxes will diminish to the point of a National Crash.  We are not far from that point already, with our own coddled bits of human flotsam and jetsam.

We can’t afford the human cost, and we can’t afford the fiscal cost.

Guns are not the greatest danger to America, nor is “global warming” according to the Religious Left.

The greatest danger to America is Barack Hussein Obama.

Or any Demorat successor.

FBI tells teachers to inform on students who express ‘anti-government’ and ‘anarchist’ political beliefs as high schools are ‘ideal targets’ for extremist recruiters

by Wills Robinson

  • Document urges faculty members to assess behavior of students 

  • They suggest to watch for certain signs, such as tendency toward violence

  • Bureau hopes indications could prevent future terrorist attacks 

  • They believed it would help reduce the number of youngsters joining terrorist or anti-government groups

It would seem to me the real “extremist recruiters” could be some of the teachers already employed in public schools.

The FBI wants teachers to inform on ‘anti-government’ or ‘anarchist’ students.

In a document titled ‘Preventing Violence and Extremism in Schools’, the bureau urges faculty members to assess concerning behavior of schoolchildren as they may be ’embracing extremist ideologies’.

They also list a number of indications, such as violent tendencies, which may be a sign they are planning an attack or may want to join a terrorist group.

Officials then want staff to pass on information to authorities in a bid to prevent any actions which could put others in danger.

In other words, the United States government wants to make an enemy out of me once again — but oddly enough, only during Leftist administrations.  The federal government wants to make an enemy of its soldiers, of those who believe in religion (excepting that of Islam) and those who believe in the Second Amendment.

Obama American CRAZIESThose who cling to their God and guns.  Who believe in the US Constitution.  Who believe in the Bill of Rights.  Who believe in a religion other than Islam.

Second, the US Department of Justice was actually contemplating prosecution of those who deny climate change/global warming.

Seriously.  The actual Obama-sanctioned Belief Police.

AG Lynch Testifies: Justice Dept. Has ‘Discussed’ Civil Legal Action Against Climate Change Deniers

by Jon Street

Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified Wednesday that the Justice Department has “discussed” taking civil legal action against the fossil fuel industry for “denying” the “threat of carbon emissions” when it comes to climate change.

A Democrat asked and was answered:

“My question to you is, other than civil forfeitures and matters attendant to a criminal case, are there other circumstances in which a civil matter under the authority of the Department of Justice has been referred to the FBI?” he asked.

“This matter has been discussed. We have received information about it and have referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action on,” Lynch answered. “I’m not aware of a civil referral at this time.”

Obama’s last SOTU

Obama Selfie With Stick, AlaskaAnd it couldn’t have happened to a more traitorous man.  Or quickly enough.

The only thing worse than having to hear Obama’s voice, literally, EVERY day for the past seven years would be to hear Hillary’s piercing voice every day.  That is not, at this point, an impossible future.

Will Obama mention his traitorous Iranian deal?  Will he mention the Iranian missiles fired close to our newest aircraft carrier?  Will he mention the ten sailors captured by Iran?  As Charles Krauthammer said, Obama has already been serially humiliated by Iran.

Obama canceled sanctions for the missile launches.  Obama is kind to our enemies and brutal to our allies.

How long will the speech go?  How many times will he say “I” instead of we?

The transcript of his last SOTU is here.

And the lies commenced.

Mr Obama said we have emerged better now than before.  Yes ladies and gentlemen, he is delusional from the very beginning.

“We have reformed healthcare and reinvigorated our energy sector.”

“How do we lead the world without becoming its policeman?”

“The people who say our economy is in decline are peddling fiction.”

“We should recruit and support more great teachers for our kids.”

So here has what Leftist policies have yielded for teachers in our current “total lack of discipline” classroom environments.

That wasn’t a movie, a TV show or a bad SNL skit.  That’s classroom reality.

“Food Stamp recipients didn’t cause the financial crisis; recklessness on Wall Street did.”  Wall Street helped; but the givernment demanded that banks loan to people who couldn’t afford houses.

“Look, if anybody still wants to dispute the science around climate change, have at it. You’ll be pretty lonely, because you’ll be debating our military, most of America’s business leaders, the majority of the American people, almost the entire scientific community, and 200 nations around the world who agree it’s a problem and intend to solve it.”

Again, more lies.  More embracement of The Religious Left — those who so desperately want to believe in Global Warming.  It is a religion that demands faith and, like islam, brooks no dissenters.

“No nation dares to attack us or our allies because they know that’s the path to ruin.”

All of the highest-ranking military professionals in the room appeared as though they had had a steaming dog turd stuffed in their mouths when Obama said that.  I watched.

Obama SOTU 2016 Military“Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than when I was elected to this office.”

Another massive and total lie.

Even the Demorats in the audience who stood to clap did so with tepid vigor and passive and disinterested faces.

THE BIGGEST LIE OF THE EVENING:

“We don’t need to build them (ISIL) up to show that we’re serious, nor do we need to push away vital allies in this fight by echoing the lie that ISIL is representative of one of the world’s largest religions.”

THE BIGGEST OMISSION OF THE EVENING:

NOT ONE WORD about US debt and the massive deficits, CONTINUED and EXPANDED GOVERNMENT SPENDING that he and Demorats and Leftists demand.

“The future we want – opportunity and security for our families; a rising standard of living and a sustainable, peaceful planet for our kids – all that is within our reach. But it will only happen if we work together. It will only happen if we can have rational, constructive debates.”

And those debates, those discussions, are just what you and the Demorats and your fellow Leftists won’t brook in your cabinet meetings, in the public, on the internet, in books and magazines, on television and, mostly now, in our schools and universities.

“As frustration grows, there will be voices urging us to fall back into tribes, to scapegoat fellow citizens who don’t look like us, or pray like us, or vote like we do, or share the same background.”

How odd that you mention that in your very last state of the union speech, because you have been the greatest Divider In Chief.

Obama simultaneously disarms American citizens and arms Iran with the largest, most powerful and deadliest weapons systems on the planet.  Mr Obama disarms our citizens, removes equipment from our police forces — who are our First Responders to terrorist and critical incidents, not any single faction of the federal government, in any form.  Not the FBI, not the US Marshals, not FEMA.  Not any federal agency.  Your local law enforcement only.

He also ensures that our law enforcement agencies are diminished, demagogued, belittled.

Obama was the greatest Divider In Chief.  He will be proven as the least effective president in recent history, even worse than that of James Earl Carter.

His power depended precisely upon division, the diminishment of American power, greater regulatory and governmental power and money, with the

Just as with his entire administration and tenure, Obama’s final state of the union speech was entirely disconnected from reality.  He continues to be physically and mentally separated from the true reality in America and continues his denial of the way the country and the world operates.  His speech was disjointed and riddled with major droppings of his ego, arrogance and dismissal of those who would oppose him or his policies in any fashion.  He sets aside reality that is inconvenient to him.

Obama ZombiesNot one word about American hostages in Iran.  Not one word about the Iran sanctions or Monday’s ten hostage sailors.  He lectures us about civility but not one reference to the fact that Obama is almost singlehandedly responsible for the chaos in Syria via ISIS, his “J.V. team” and that, by extension, Obama will be responsible for the Islamization and decline of the bulk of Europe.

Obama chose to ignore the area where a president can have the most ready influence: foreign policy.  He chose to dictate the area foundationally covered by and under the aegis of Congress: domestic policy.

The speech, like Mr Obama, was sophomoric, belittling and pedantic.  And not based in any way upon reality.

“This was less about a state of the union than it was a state of denial.”
— Ted Cruz
