HRC - GUN VIOLENCE GOP

As details surrounding the San Bernardino, California, shooting gradually emerged Wednesday evening, President Barack Obama told CBS News that the U.S. has “a pattern now of mass shooting in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world.”

 

The mass shooting at a social services agency in San Bernardino left at least 14 dead and 17 others wounded. It is also the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. since Adam Lanza opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, on Dec. 15, 2012, killing 26 children and adults, the Associated Press reported.

Using data from shootingtracker.com, which is maintained by a Reddit group, we’ve updated our map that documents all the U.S. mass shootings in 2015 alone. The group defines mass shootings as incidents when at least four people are killed or wounded, including the gunman.

 

According to the tracker’s data, the San Bernardino incident represents the 355th shooting this year, the Washington Post reported. The incident in San Bernardino also overshadowed another shooting in Savannah, Georgia that occurred the same day, claiming one life and injuring three others.

However, there’s not a standard definition of “mass shooting.” Adam Lankford, a criminal justice professor at the University of Alabama previously told the NewsHour that FBI’s data included incidents where fewer than four people were shot and didn’t include shootings of multiple people that occur in a home or other un-crowded setting.

 

On Friday, a gunman surrendered to police after an hour long siege in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he killed three people and wounded nine others in a Planned Parenthood clinic. The same day, a gunfight killed two and injured two in Sacramento, California. On Nov. 23, there were mass shootings in Houston, Minneapolis and Columbus, Ohio. There were five shootings on Nov. 22.

 

On Oct. 1, when a gunman killed 10 people and wounded seven more at a community college in Roseburg, Oregon, Obama also spoke of the routine nature of these shootings.

 

[A]s I said just a few months ago, and I said a few months before that, and I said each time we see one of these mass shootings, our thoughts and prayers are not enough. It’s not enough,” Obama said.

Ronald Reagan The Republican Greek God Was The Biggest Racist In The Highest Office

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2015 by sheriffali

Why should anyone be surprised that a 21 years of age white man wearing the South Africa Era and Rhodesia Apartheid Flags, with a Confederate License Place go into a Church and Kill Nine [9] African Americans?

 

Ronald Reagan threatened to veto sanctions against the Apartheid South Africa, however, the House and Senate passed the sanctions with a two thirds plus majority that rendered Reagan’s threat moot. Ronald Reagan went as far as calling Nelson Mandela a Terrorist, while siding with South Africa’s Botha.

 

Ronald Reagan was against The Civil Rights Act; The Voting Rights Act, and publicly said;

 

“If an individual wants to discriminate against Negroes or others in selling or renting his house, it is his right to do so.” Ronald Reagan

 

Ronald Reagan’s Administration had the most scandals in American History with dozens of Convicted Criminals from the Iran Contra Scandal, The Savings and Loan Banks Collapse, all of whom George Herbert Walker Bush Pardoned hours before he turned over the Presidency To Bill Clinton on January 20, 1993.

 

The hate, racism, bigotry and the likes you see today, you can thank Ronald Reagan for wrecking America. Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News of Hate and Racism was Ronald Regan’s gift to America. Reagan bent the law to accommodate that parasitic plague, Rupert Murdoch whose Fox News have nourished the uninformed, ignorant, uneducated into brainwashing them into the haters and killers you see today in the extremist right wing Republican Party.

[NYT] AT the sprawling Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas one day last spring, I was met by five men with earpieces who escorted me to the pastor’s office. As I prepared to preach that morning, a rolling phalanx of bodyguards shadowed my every move — when I greeted parishioners in the church’s spacious narthex and even as I made a stop at the men’s room. We walked from the church study into the 4,200-seat sanctuary, the security team whispering into their wrists.

 

I was entering a sanctuary, a sacred space to speak the word of the Lord and to lift the spirits of God’s people. But I was also entering a black church, a site of particular power in this country, and a site of unspeakable terror.

 

That is what the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., became on Wednesday, when a young white male wielding a .45-caliber handgun unloaded his rage on nine souls, and that is why for the foreseeable future we will enter our houses of worship wary of violence.

 

Sites and spaces of black life have come under attack from racist forces before, but the black church is a unique target. It is not just where black people gather.

 

In too many other places, black self-worth is bludgeoned by bigotry or hijacked by self-hatred: that our culture is too dumb, our lives too worthless, to warrant the effort to combat our enemies. The black sanctuary breathes in black humanity while the pulpit exhales unapologetic black love.

 

For decades, these sites of love have been magnets for hate.

 

In June 1958, a dynamite bomb rocked the Bethel Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., led by the Rev. Fred L. Shuttlesworth, a civil rights luminary. It would take more than two decades to bring the white supremacist perpetrator to justice. In 1963, four girls were killed when the 16th Street Baptist Church in the same city was bombed. As the drive to register black voters heated up during Freedom Summer in 1964, nearly three dozen black churches in Mississippi were bombed or burned.

 

The hatred of black sacred space didn’t end in the 1960s. In July 1993, theF.B.I. uncovered a plot to bomb the First A.M.E. Church in Los Angeles, wipe out its congregation with machine guns, and then assassinate Rodney G. King in hopes of provoking a race war. In 1995, several men tooksledgehammers to the pews and kitchens of black churches in Sumter County, Ala. A year later, the Inner City Church in Knoxville, Tenn., was bombarded with as many as 18 Molotov cocktails as its back door was splashed with racist epithets.

 

President Clinton appointed a task force in 1996 to investigate church fires, which by 1998 had singed the holy legacies of 225 black churches. In November, 2008, three white men set the Macedonia Church of God in Christ in Springfield, Mass., ablaze hours after Barack Obama was elected the nation’s first black president.

 

And this wasn’t the first time Emanuel A.M.E. Church, founded in 1816, faced racist violence. After Denmark Vesey, one of the church’s founding members, plotted a slave rebellion but was foiled in the effort by a slave who betrayed his plans, Emanuel was burned to the ground by an angry white mob.

“Stand Your Ground” Gun Law Makes No Sense; We Look Like Fools…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2015 by sheriffali

[Source Wall Street Journal – New York Times]

 

The Wall Street Journal studied “justifiable homicides” nationwide from 2000 to 2010. It reported that these killings increased 85 percent in states with Florida-style laws (some states’ versions of the law were more limited), while overall killings, adjusted for population growth, declined during this period.

 

These laws encourage a “shoot first and ask questions later” mentality, which may help explain why, in supposedly justifiable killings, the victim, is more likely to be black when the shooter is white.

 

IT’S been 10 years since Florida enacted a beefed-up Stand Your Ground law. Since 2005, roughly half the states have passed this law, or one like it. The National Rifle Association led the charge, arguing that Stand Your Ground laws would improve public safety and protect honest citizens. Similar laws have existed elsewhere for over a century, but Florida’s law substantially altered the legal equation.

 

Under the new breed of laws, a person who has harmed or killed another in a public place can presumptively claim self-defense. The police must accept the claim’s validity. In other words, the individual need only assert the belief that the use of force was necessary to prevent serious harm or death. Coupled with that is special legal protection that makes the person (as the Florida law says) “immune from criminal prosecution and civil action.” Prosecution is still possible, but it is much more difficult.

 

A result, according to the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, is hamstrung investigations and legal protections greater than those afforded to police officers. Not only have these laws failed to increase public safety, they have also turned the clock back to the mythologized mayhem of the Wild West.

 

The Tampa Bay Times examined the effects of Florida’s 2005 law in more than 200 cases (about half of them fatal) through mid-2012. It reported that the law’s chief beneficiaries were “those with records of crime and violence.” Nearly 60 percent of those making self-defense claims when a person was killed had been arrested at least once before; a third of those had been accused of violent crimes in the past; over a third had illegally carried guns in the past or had threatened others with them.

 

Stand Your Ground claims succeeded 67 percent of the time, but in 79 percent of the cases, the assailant could have retreated to avoid the confrontation. In 68 percent, the person killed was unarmed.

Sick Bastard Pastor John Hagee Living Off The Collection Plate Says: “‘Nasty’ Welfare Recipients Don’t Deserve To Live.”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2015 by sheriffali

All Religions were created by fallible men and carried out by fallible people that use self righteousness and fear to bilk the vulnerable out of every penny they can squeeze, while they Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, Paula White and others, live like Kings and Queens in Multi Million Dollar Mansions; Fly on Private Jets; Ride in Limousines, as they suck the blood out of their followers.

 

For those that believe I have no problem with that, however, as for me “I personally reject “all” Religions for they are nothing short of the world’s largest scams for Mammon and Power.

 

San Antonio, Texas – Pastor John Hagee of the Cornerstone Church delivered an impassioned speech decrying the evils of welfare dependency. While prefacing his remarks with an acknowledgement of the need the disabled, infirm, and elderly have of receiving social support, he made it clear that he has little tolerance for able bodied individuals who are living off the taxes of the working people.

 

Pastor Hagee cited that statistic that the welfare population of the United States exceeds to population of Spain. He believes that many of these people do not actually need welfare and should instead reap the rewards of their actions according to Biblical counsel.

Referring to 2 Thessalonians 3:10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.”, he insists that such people as are found gaming the system must get off the proverbial couch and work. His comments are certainly well-intended even if they came across as somewhat derogatory. The problem is that the sectors of the economy which product mid to high wage income, have not recovered from the 2008 banking crisis.

 

The main sectors of the economy which have thrived are those producing low-wage jobs which is what makes it very difficult from even working people to make a living. Coupled with the disincentive that a person can fare better on welfare than they can to work, and the picture becomes clearer. Yes, people need to work, but the economy isn’t the rising tide lifting all the ships that it needs to be either.

Republicans Endorse Heavily Armed Men Attempting To Wage War With The U.S. Government; America’s real enemy – Republicans, Religion, Tea Party, Fox, Guns and Wars…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2014 by sheriffali

A fantasy is a situation imagined by an individual or group which does not correspond with reality, but expresses certain desires or aims of its creator(s). Fantasy is not unlike little kiddies playing make believe where they pretend or imagine things are different than they really are and imitate something that is real; such as when small children pretending they are grown-up army men with an enemy to kill. Since Americans elected an African American man as President, a group of childish men fantasized they are either living in 1776 fighting the government to preserve their freedom, or mobilizing to wage war against a foreign army invading America’s borders.

 

The children pretending they are revolutionary war heroes protecting the U.S. Constitution have been amassing their imaginary army on the Southern border to battle the influx of refugee children fleeing violence in Central America. These make-believe warriors have the express consent and blessing of Texas Republicans who love the idea of armed vigilantes wanting to “point their guns dead at children, right between the eyes, and say get back across the border or you will be shot.” The seriousness of the issue is the make-believe army men are not children, they are heavily armed, and not only do they want to shoot child refugees, they want to wage war against the government.

 

Two Texas Republicans, gubernatorial candidate Gregg Abbott and state Representative Doug Miller claimed that the armed militias “have a right to be there to help ranchers and owners keep illegals coming onto their property.” A couple of weeks ago after a dozen Texas Democrats sickened by the armed threats against child refugees penned a letter to Abbott imploring him to “denounce the actions of these militia groups and clarify the jurisdiction these militia groups have to patrol alongside local law enforcement and Border Patrol agents,” Abbott did what one expects from a Texas Republican; claimed the Democrats’ letter was a “partisan political stunt” because Abbott has absolutely no problem with heavily armed vigilantes threatening refugee children.

 

The armed militias Abbott will not denounce and Miller claims have every right to play army are a dangerous combination of so-called Oathkeepers and members of the “Three Percenters Club.” Besides being make-believe border guards, both groups are “paranoid anti-government conspiracy freaks” and proven “potentially violent gun activists” who think supporting and defending the United States Constitution is threatening the government and confronting children at the border. However, like most children living in a fantasy, neither group can elucidate how amassing at the border heavily-armed or threatening the government is “defending and supporting the Constitution.”

 

The Oathkeepers claim they, like every public school teacher, swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic; “and meant it.” The Oathkeepers warn of government officials planning to “disarm the American people, confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies, and blockade American cities thus turning them into giant concentration camps.” There is no truth to their claims, but that is precisely why they live in a fantasy world; their claims are imaginary. What Oathkeepers cannot say, is where in the Constitution it tells them to lock and load to confront brown children at the border, commit seditious conspiracy against a United States agency (Bureau of Land Management), or aim their guns at federal officials executing a court order to “start the second revolutionary war.”

 

According to Vanderboegh, “We intend to maintain our God-given natural rights to liberty and property, and that means most especially the right to keep and bear arms. We are committed to the restoration of the Founders’ Republic, and are willing to fight, die and, if forced by any would-be oppressor, kill in the defense of ourselves and the Constitution that we all took an oath to uphold against enemies foreign and domestic. The collectivists (Charles Koch’s name for non-conservatives) who now control the government should leave us alone if they wish to continue unfettered oxygen consumption. Attempt to further oppress us at your peril and WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.”

 

 

The Three Percenters, like the Oathkeepers, are part of the mindset that joined Cliven Bundy to start the second revolutionary war against the United States because they support and defend the Constitution. The Constitution, by the way, that gave two federal courts power to order federal officials to prevent Bundy from trespassing on federal land. Like the situation in Texas where Republicans support armed vigilantism at the border, Republicans supported Bundy and his play soldiers praising them as patriots who had “a right to be there ‘helping’ a rancher keep ‘illegals’ (federal officers) from coming onto” the U.S. government’s land.

 

These so-called Constitution supporters’ fantasy that it is their job to take on the role of border patrol agents, or threaten violence against the United States government, although childish, is dangerous and every bit as much the fault of Republicans as the traitors arming up against the government and children. Republicans sounded a clarion call to defend the border from “ebola infested” children with terrorist ties invading America because there is a midterm election looming, and spent the past five-and-a-half years warning of an overreaching government seizing their guns and subverting their freedom; even though there have been no gun safety laws passed since 1995, and ebola is unique to the African continent, not Central America. Republicans have perpetuated the fantasy that America is facing an existential threat since 2009, and it informs the real reason so-called defenders of the Constitution are taking up arms against the government is because they hate democracy that allowed the people to elect an African American man to occupy the White House. Those two elections drove their fantasy that they are in revolutionary war against America and child immigrants.

 

Everything about the armed militias plaguing America is borne of their fantasy belief that they have been assaulted because the people elected a Black man as President. They cannot possibly support and defend the Constitution because the fantasy document they support is not remotely related to the real Constitution any more than arming up against child refugees and the federal government is being a patriot. A child’s imagination, fantasies, and make believe is a wonder to behold, but when grown men that should be holding down a real job instead of fantasizing they are in a revolutionary war against the United States government and use firearms to confront refugee children, their fantasy makes the traitors against America and cowards for laying in wait for child refugees fleeing violence in Central America.

Meet The GOP Newest Running Mate – GUNS; Republicans Run Red States Are The Poorest In The NATION and that is a fact! [Gallup Poll]

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 30, 2014 by sheriffali

Republicans Run Red-States Are The Poorest In The Nation; Least Educated; Anarchist Mentality All Free From The Deceptive Courtesy Of The Deceptive Republican Politicians, Feeding The Uninformed, Ignorant And Brainwashed, Seditiousness That Has Created A Criminal Mentality That Is The Root Cause Of The Blatant Gun Violence Killing Children, Women And Men At The Rate Of 40 Per Day.

 

Republicans are in such a disarray that rather than pass Job Bills, Infrastructure, Education or anything Domestic that would help the American People, they are hell-bent on promoting Anarchy by total and complete misuse of the Second Amendment promulgating seditiousness that is inducing Criminal Minded Anarchists, the kind that killed the two “Innocent Public Servants in Las Vegas – Police Officers.”

 

The Republican Party and their followers that are big on mouth about Christianity, Patriots and Country, they are sure bankrupt of Christ; Patriotism and really do not care about what happens to America, so long as the GOP Politicians hold on to their seats in Congress; the Governor’s Mansions and aspire to recapture the White House in 2016.

 

America belong to the People, not a handful of deceptive Politicians and unless and until the American People see each other as Americans first and Party Second, Politicians will wreck America and turn it into a Banana Republic. To the Gun Whores; Guns don’t educate or feed your children and help them out of misery to a better life, the GOP is picking not only your Pockets, but wake up, they have picked your brain.

81 School Shootings, 66 Children Dead; Where Is The Republican Outrage Outside of Benghazi, Sgt. Bergdahl Exchange, Impeachment and Iraq Civil War?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 23, 2014 by sheriffali

The United States Congress, both House and Senate is a costly Big Political Whore House, paid for by the Tax Payers, with their blood and sweat; agony for being unable to care for their children and their loved ones; living from one week to another; tens of thousands living on the Streets of America and since losing their homes and their jobs under Bush, have resorted to living in make-shift tents in wooded areas.

 

 

 

On the note of Congress, Republicans over the past five years have blocked any meaningful legislation that would have helped the American people including our Veterans; totally ignored the out of control Gun madness that are killing children and adults every day in America; ignored the broken infrastructure, but what the Republicans have done, is to have countless hearings on anything and everything, except that which helps the American people.

 

 

 

The Media, Television, Radio, Print, they for the most part have moved from reporting the News to help the uninformed ascertain what is going on in the Country, and what News today are all about, is perpetuating the egregiousness by Pimping their Television Stations to the “do nothing Politicians to mouth out incomprehensible nonsense.” On Cable News Net Works there no longer exist News, what they do have is  an abundance of Opinion Makers; Pundits and the likes promulgating phantasmagoric rationales and internecine narcissism.  

 

 

The Insanity of the Misuse of the Second Amendment by Politicians that are in the Pocket of the National Rifle Association with no regard for human life, but are hell bent on protecting Gun Nuts that has totally spiral out of control.

 

 

 

The right to bear arms is going crazy. People, mostly white males, are carrying rifles everywhere. Their reason? Because if they do not do this, they’ll lose their rights…huh? There is a reason why they call it a right? No government official can take away your rights to have a firearm and since the Constitution does not say you are not allowed to carry in public, state rights allows people to carry in public. The disturbing trend though is, corporations allow people to carry their firearms in their place of business:

 

 

So why do mostly conservative white males carry? Most common answer…to protect themselves and their loved ones. These gun nuts are staunch advocates of the Second Amendment…or openly quote the Second Amendment as though they are some Constitutional expert, carrying their pocket Constitution with them while marching around with their rifle or shotgun for all to see. Yet, one wonders, would they do the same when people of color do the same?

 

Looking back in history, the Mulford Act was a 1967 California bill prohibiting the public carrying of loaded firearms. Named after Republican assemblyman Don Mulford, the bill garnered national attention after the Black Panthers marched on the California Capitol to protest the bill. The bill was signed to law by Republican Ronald Wilson Reagan.

 

 

Even though the Republicans wanted to disarm the Panthers, because of the 14th Amendment, everyone was banned from open carry, and California was one a several states that prohibits open carry. Still, it makes you wonder, what would happen if the Tea Party were predominately people of color? Would the conservatives still be adamant in the right to carry? When Mulford wrote the bill the NRA sponsored legislation to have gun control.

 

 

 

Again would the conservatives support PoC carrying in Walmart, Home Depot, Toys R Us parks and other areas open to the public? From past history, apparently no. Still, typical of the conservatives logic, everything they do always seem to backfire (no pun intended). What was probably a ban against the Black Panther ended up banning everyone.

 

 

Honestly, I’m sort of glad that the RNC in California do want gun control and all of our governors were pro-choice, but it makes one wonder, if the Tea Party with all its glory was a conservative black organization, would the NRA still be this vocal? Gun nuts on the right are saying gun control is racist, because it banned blacks from owning firearms. I respond by saying that the idea of the ban was from a Republican, signed by a Republican but it was a Democrat who made sure either all folks were banned or no ban at all.” [Politicususa.com]

GUNS & GOD: “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you, I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” [John 14:27]

My words to you – “Take up thy cross and follow Me,” but you have taken up Guns and now you have taken Guns into My Church. Do you still follow Moses Law “an eye for an eye,” or My words, “If thou spike thee on the right cheek turn to him the left?”

 

“Do not take the name of the Lord Thy God in vain, for those that live by the sword shall die by the sword. You cannot be with Me if you do not give heed to My words.”

 

It seems a total contradiction on your way to Church to be carrying the Bible in one hand and a Gun in the other. God, Christ, Bible, Guns, Christian are only words, what matters “are your deeds.”

 

Do your security, faith and eternity lie in the Jesus Christ or in the barrel of a Gun? The Jihadists protect the Quran as an endangered species; they read it; they wrap it in fine linen; they tuck it away safely and in the name of Allah [God] they kill innocent children, women and men.

 

Do we do the same? Read the Bible; put it in a clean place; take it to church; kneel down and pray, all the while carrying one or more Guns, ready to kill your fellow human being, made by the same God you profess to believe in? We are high and mighty proclaiming God in Christ; calling ourselves Christians; and at the same time overloaded with prejudice; hate; discrimination; always invoking the Constitution and being Patriots.

 

God, Christ and Love is indivisible! If you are willing to kill, hate, allow yourself to be prejudice, discriminate, then, you are most certainly bankrupt of Christ and Patriotism.

 

The more intertwined and entwined you are with Religion, the farther away you are from God, because, God has never been and will never be a Religion!
