There’s an old Cuban adage that has been around for years that goes “A coincidence is just a coincidence. Two are a pattern. Three? Conspiracy” which is an appropriate introduction to today’s political contretemps from yours truly. The premise being – Have you noticed that every time OBO the Clown’s ideological agenda goes down in flames (ie in this instance the new Russian RasPUTIN cutting the Clown to shreds in the Middle East), an extreme tragedy appears right on cue to deflect the truth and instead to propagate the propaganda machine’s talking points memo of the day? The Middle East foreign policy of the two jokers OBO the Clown and Heinz Baked Beans Kerry is being fried to a cinder, while OBO pulled Baked Beans and Rice (Susan, that is) from the United Nations gathering yesterday when Bibi Netanyahu’s scathing speech exposed the perfidy of the Iranian “deal”; his “deafening silence” pause for 45 seconds was the brilliant tour de force of a true leader of his nation laying bare the exigency of his so-called “allies”.
Cue the Oregon shooting, and OBO the Clown was all over it barely before it had begun and ended, calling a hastily-convened presser before the story had really begun to unfold. No problem, simply put it down to yet another one of his brash entries into controversial events that have been christened (oops, is that allowed anymore?) his “the Cambridge Police acted stupidly” moment yet again. Each time one of these episodes occurs, Obama goes straight to TV as if he were dog whistling to entice craziness. Conversely of course, if it’s a police officer being killed, then OBO the Clown is silent, as he cares more about using people to destroy other people than actually helping them. Otherwise, he cares not a jot or tittle what people care about – it’s all about him, his agenda, and his narcissism. Dignity, freedom, and humanity go flying out the window under his mantra of a one world government elite, subjugating every word, thought regulation, and deed to the implementation and terror of global jihad.
One look at the photo of the shooter (revealed a short while ago) tells you everything you need to know, and to yours truly it has muslim-convert written all over it. Referring back to the Cuban adage, by sheer coincidence, as Putin bombs OBO the Clown’s proxies in Syria while the clown himself goes into hiding, we have a mass shooting committed by yet another lone-wolf lunatic, and by sheer coincidence, our rogue fraud “president” comes out of hiding and is all over the TV, raving like an absolute idiot, scolding us yet again about guns. By sheer coincidence, Oregon (like his home state Illinois and Chicago) had already tightened up its stringent gun laws and yet, despite all of that, we have a mass shooting in Oregon. What a surprise, eh? But wait – there’s more – by sheer coincidence, the Oregon sheriff (who has long been known as an outspoken champion of Second Amendment Rights and an ardent foe of gun-control) has been targeted by the Left. So are we really surprised to have a mass shooting occurring by sheer coincidence on his turf, in one of the Clintons’ “gun free zones” which was protected by two, unarmed security guards, “for our safety?” What stupendous timing, why if one were given to conspiratorial insights, one might sense a pattern and underlying design here, eh? Stinks to high heaven if you ask me …
Did I mention that there’s an old Cuban adage that has been around for years that goes “A coincidence is just a coincidence. Two are a pattern. Three? Conspiracy.”
Thomas Lifson with his insightful take on the whole matter (together with two other links at the end) from today’s American Thinker, “Obama Disgraces Himself with rush to Politicize Roseburg Shooting” …
President Obama couldn’t wait for the facts to come in before addressing the nation on the Roseburg shootings, openly calling them “something we should politicize.” Eager to distract the country from the collapse of his Syria policy and the triumph of Russia in replacing the US as the dominant force in the Middle East, he seized upon the deaths as means to advance his anti-gun agenda, with absolutely no knowledge of the guns used, or the means by which the shooter acquired them. He referred to himself 28 times in the course of his 12 minute speech. It reminded me of his rush to judgment in declaring the Cambridge Police “acted stupidly” in the arrest of his pal Skip Gates.
Jacob Sullum of Reason exposed the vacuity of his knee jerk reaction:
The president insisted that “modest regulation,” consistent with the Second Amendment rights of “law-abiding gun owners,” could “prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America.” But as Brian Doherty pointed out, Obama did not mention a single specific policy fitting that description.
That telling omission makes it pretty hard to buy Obama’s argument that anyone who opposes “common-sense gun-safety laws” has blood on his hands. “This is a political choice that we make to allow this to happen every few months in America,” he said. “We collectively are answerable to those families who lose their loved ones because of our inaction.” If only we had done something, in other words, those people in Oregon would still be alive. But we are left to guess what that thing might be.
So far, President Obama has said nothing about the ongoing carnage in his hometown of Chicago, where every weekend sees a slaughter nearly as bad as the event in Roseburg. Last weekend, for instance, as Rick Moran noted,
the city saw a spasm of violence rare even for Chicago; 14 people were shot in 15 hours, including 6 dead.
Chicago has some of the toughest gun control laws in America. Cynics, like Streiff of Red State, see racism in Obama’s selective outrage:
Let’s be clear on this. Obama does not care about dead bodies in the street. If he did he’d set up a tent in Chicago so he could be on site as a dozen or so people are killed or wounded each weekend. He won’t do that because those people are primarily black or Hispanic and he knows his liberal base thinks that is just what minorities do. If he was really interested in dead bodies he’d be down on the Arizona-Mexico border where the actions of his own Justice Department have made that area a war zone by illegally passing weapons to unauthorized buyers. If he actually cared he would have shown some vague interest when a military recruiting station was shot up in Chattanooga. He is, allegedly, the commander-in-chief. But he couldn’t show concern because the shooter was a Muslim radical (or radical Muslim, YMMV). He could have shown concern when three Muslim students were gunned down in North Carolina but the shooter was one of his lunatic supporters.
I see politics, not racism, at work. Obama is the consummate cynic, anxious to disarm the American people. When he and the other gun grabbers dismiss their armed guards and agree to go out into daily life without firearms to protect them, I will start taking them more seriously.
Dems are as pure as the driven snow ~ A list provided by Ivan Poulter from Facebook which was compiled by Michael Casey and David Stelling…
