    Before the bodies were buried, the old media and other proponents of ever more restrictions on the Second Amendment were using the deaths to promote their political agenda.  They piously fail to mention their own responsibility. The "Copycat Effect" is a well known and researched phenomena.  Endless promotion of these tragic events and the publicity given to the perpetrators is far more of a causal factor than the Second Amendment. We have known for decades that it is media attention that is the driving motivation for most of these public mass shooters. The copycat effect has been demonstrated and...
  • The Democratic Party Adopts $15/hour Minimum Wage into National Platform

    08/29/2015 10:09:00 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 51 replies
    The Democratic Party on Friday adopted a call to raise the minimum wage to $15/hr as part of their established party platform heading into the 2016 election season. The move further polarizes the progressive wing of the party by moving them further to the left of both the Republican Party, and corporate centrist Democrats such as Hillary Clinton. In response to the Democratic Party’s vote, Terrence Wise, a Kansas City, Mo. McDonald’s and Burger King Worker and member of the National Organizing Committee of the Fight for $15, issued the following statement.

    Former Gov. Jim Gilmore, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, on Friday challenged GOP front-runner Donald Trump to a “mano a mano” debate on birthright citizenship. Gilmore has criticized Trump’s plan to overturn the birthright citizenship provision of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It guarantees citizenship to babies born in the U.S., even if their parents are in the U.S. illegally. “Donald Trump is wrong on this issue and on his views of the 14th Amendment,” Gilmore said in a statement. “I challenge Donald Trump to debate ‘mano a mano’ on this issue. His comments are irresponsible,...

    After self-described “racist” killer Dylann Roof executed the black members of a church Bible study, people found photos of the killer holding the Confederate battle flag. There were also photos of him burning and stomping on the American flag — per the request of a social media activist. Suddenly, the ‘Southern Cross‘ was removed from the public square all over — state houses, companies, flag poles and college campuses. The murders prompted the call for the digging up the body of Nathan Bedford Forrest, the founder of the Ku Klux Klan. The Virginia murderer had in his possession the ‘gay...

    The father of Alison Parker, the journalist shot dead on live television on Wednesday, has said that now he is campaigning for gun control he will probably have to get a firearm to defend himself. Andy Parker, spoke to reporters on Friday after he visited the television station, WDBJ7, where his daughter worked before being murdered - along with cameraman Adam Ward - by their former colleague Vester Lee Flanagan. He continued to push for stricter gun control in the United States, where decades of mass shootings have failed to produce meaningful reform. “I want to go to the Virginia...

    When Alison Parker was an intern at WDBJ in 2012, Vester Lee Flanagan — then a reporter for the station — heard her utter what he apparently considered to be racist words. Parker made reference to “swinging” by a destination and also referred to heading out into the “field,” according to Flanagan’s 2013 complaint with the station, the New York Post reported. Parker wasn’t disciplined over her word choices, the Post reported, and Flanagan was fired a month after leveling his racism accusations against Parker, which were part of his failed discrimination lawsuit against the station. Two years later, Flanagan...

    ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — The woman who survived the on-air shooting that killed two TV journalists says she never saw the gunman walk up to the group because the camera's bright light blinded her. Vicki Gardner, a chamber of commerce official, was answering questions about the community on live TV when the gunfire erupted. She was wounded as she fell to the ground after hearing the first gunshots, her husband said Friday. The gunman, Vester Flanagan, ambushed WDBJ-TV cameraman Adam Ward and reporter Alison Parker during the interview Wednesday at the Smith Mountain Lake Visitor Center....

    BBC journalist Franz Strasser has filmed through rubber bullets and tear gas in Rio de Janeiro and has at times been told by police to stop filming while on assignment. But he had never been ordered to delete footage until Wednesday, after he and a fellow journalist came upon the scene on Interstate 66 where Vester Lee Flanagan crashed a car following a pursuit by Virginia State Police. A trooper told Strasser that police would need to seize his camera because his footage could be evidence, but then ordered him to delete the footage. The trooper watched as the journalist...

    he Wednesday morning murders of 24-year-old Roanoke TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were a racist atrocity, a hate crime. Were they not white, they would be alive today. Their killer, Vester L. Flanagan II, said as much in his farewell screed. He ordered his murder weapon, he said, two days after the slaughter of nine congregants at the African-American AME church in Charleston, South Carolina. “What sent me over the top was the church shooting,” said Flanagan. To be sure, racism does not fully explain why Flanagan, fired from that same WDBJ7 station, committed this act...

In the wake of these shootings comes the same questions. Why does this happen? What can be done? But there is one consistent reaction: an increase in gun sales. Gun and ammunition stores have seen a boost in business in recent years. The reason, one store owner said, is whenever a shooting tragedy happens, there's a renewed national debate on gun control That debate, the gun shop owner said, leads to increased...

    Before Vester Lee Flanagan II shot and killed Roanoke, VA journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward on live television and then committed suicide, the public knew him as Bryce Williams, a reporter at station WDBJ who covered local news stories. In the days that followed the double murder, alleged details about his troubling past have emerged, particularly surrounding his late mother. According to court papers obtained by the New York Daily News, Flanagan’s parents Betty Flanagan and Vester Lee Flanagan Sr. divorced when Vester Lee was 8-years-old.

    Immigration is THE issue for 2016 Why is it that when African Americans whose families have been in this country for hundreds of years commit crimes they go to jail and when illegal immigrants commit crimes they get released? In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide target illegal aliens, as do approximately two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants. More than 60 percent of the Hispanic gangs in Southern California—whose membership is in the tens of thousands—is illegal. These gangs are involved with drug-distribution schemes, extortion, drive-by assassinations, assaults, and robberies. According to the analysis conducted by...

    On August 26, 2015, a deranged black male who claimed he had been the victim of racism in the media industry, shot and killed two young, very talented and promising journalists in Roanoke, VA, at point blank range. Incidently, they were white. By legal definition, it was a hate crime. An act of violence motivated by racism or homophobia is a hate crime. But victimhood in this country evokes two completely polarized responses--by the political and media establishment, the criminal justice system, and the respective communities. I haven't heard the term "hate crime" mentioned once in all the many hours...

    Two days ago, ABC News reported that Vester Flanagan, the murderer of two WDBJ employees, sent a 23-page faxed manifesto to ABC News. ABC reported bits and pieces of the manifesto. Yet we still haven’t seen the full document. ABC hasn’t made it available. Why? John Nolte and others have been busy hammering away at the racial hypocrisy of many in the media after treating Flanagan’s crimes very differently from Dylann Roof’s. Unquestionably, they were both racially motivated. But you’d never know that from reading the headlines in the Washington Post or other mouthpieces that enable the (one way) racial...

Obviously, it wasn’t ACTUALLY his fault. He was a victim, and the people he killed were “probably” racist anyway (in which case, it was justified). The latest to join this shameful chorus is Shaun King, one of the leaders of the #BlackLivesMatter movement – who as it turns out has been living his own lie, pretending to be of “mixed race” when in...

    In a challenging field of competitors, Fox News Channel’s Andrew Napolitano has a strong entry for the most laughable legal analysis of the Indiana religious-freedom law. In an April Fool’s Day op-ed that he evidently means to be taken seriously, Napolitano argues that state Religious Freedom Restoration Act laws are unconstitutional. Napolitano’s core claim is that the Supreme Court, in its 1997 ruling in Boerne v. Flores, ruled that the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act is unconstitutional. In Boerne the Court ruled that Congress lacked the constitutional power to apply the federal RFRA against the states. Napolitano accurately summarizes...

    Warped TV reporter Vester Lee Flanagan exasperated bosses with his 'stiff and nervous' delivery, his inability to use a teleprompter - and by wearing a President Obama badge during an election report, Daily Mail Online can reveal. Management at WDBJ dubbed the failed newsman the 'human tape recorder' because he frequently parroted what interviewees had told him rather than doing his own journalism. Flanagan, 41, clashed repeatedly with photojournalists, belittling them in public and intimidating them with his violent temper, according to internal reports. He was also censured for wearing an Obama sticker while recording a segment at a polling...

But at the end of the interview, the father vowed to "shame" people into accepting gun control....but he DID speak about guns being kept out of the hands of mentally ill people. I thought the law already did that. Now Megyn has a former...

    Meanwhile, Hillary and Josh Earnest are already using it to push gun control. We haven’t been all over this story all day because we didn’t figure you needed one more conservative news site presuming to give you up-to-the-minute updates. But we’re shaken like everyone else by the murders of Adam Ward and Alison Parker on live television this morning in Virginia. And we’re now learning more about the motives and the twisted mind of Vester Flanagan, who died this afternoon of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Flanagan had worked for a year as a reporter at WDBJ - the very same...

    GOP presidential candidate Gov. Mike Huckabee is doing quite well according to two national polls conducted after the first GOP presidential primary debate. One poll has Huckabee in second place behind GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and another poll has Huckabee listed with the highest favorability rating among 15 GOP presidential candidates; however, former neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson takes the highest net favorability rating when comparing the results in totality. A Reuters-Ipsos poll conducted August 21-25 has Huckabee in second behind Trump – the only two candidates with double digits in that poll: Donald Trump – 30.1 percent Mike Huckabee –...

    A new national poll out today by OANN and Gravis Marketing has Trump up to 40%, his YUGEST lead ever over his Republican contenders. Here’s how each candidate rated: oann_trump_forty While Carson’s lead more than doubled, he’s still a distant second place with the rest of the GOP field behind him. Not that Jeb lost a bit as both Cruz and Fiorina gained. Here’s the info on the poll: Gravis Marketing, a nonpartisan research firm, conducted a random survey of 3,567 registered voters across the U.S. regarding the presidential election. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 2%....

    In a preview of an interview with President Barack Obama set to air tomorrow on Philadelphia ABC affiliate WPVI, the president reacted to the WDBJ shooting earlier in the day with commentary on what he described as “gun-related incidents.” “It breaks my heart every time you read about or hear about these kinds of incidents,” Obama said. “What we know, is that the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism.”

    Nothing like a racially charged killing to bring out the worst in George Zimmerman. The Florida man, cleared of charges in the 2012 slaying of black teen Trayvon Martin, used a pair of homophobic slurs and ripped President Obama after a black gunman killed a Virginia television reporter and her cameraman — both white. He also managed to misspell the first name of the killer, Vester Lee Flanagan, and the word “condemning.” “Pansy Fester lee Flanagan, too much of a daisy to deal w/racism,” tweeted Zimmerman on Wednesday. “Murders 2 whites. Hate crime, 100%. Racist Obama says nothing condeming.” Hours...

    The man who killed two journalists on live television in Virginia sent a suicide note to ABC News claiming the killings were in response to the shootings at a Charleston, SC church that killed 9 people in June. Bryce Williams, AKA Vester Lee Flanagan, contacted ABC News several times over the last several weeks saying he wanted to pitch a story to them. He never gave them an idea what the story was. Then today, Williams faxed what he called a “suicide note” where he claimed the shooting of the reporters was a response to the Charleston killings and that...

    Flanagan sent ABC News a 23-page fax about two hours after the shooting, saying his attack was triggered by the June 17 mass shooting at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, the network said. Nine people were killed, and a white man has been charged in that rampage. The network cited Flanagan as saying he had suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work. He had been attacked by black men and white women, and for being a gay black man, he said.

    Desperate to take attention away from her mushrooming email scandal, Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has been pimping the whole #BlackLivesMatter movement the last few weeks. Hard. Running counter to that narrative? The brutal murder of two white television journalists – on live television – by a black suspect, a former disgruntled TV journalist accused by the local station manager of fabricating allegations of racism (including allegations against both of his victims). Hmmmm … how to hashtag this one … #MediaLivesMatter? #RealAffirmativeAction? #HeedingFarrakhan? Yeah … Anyway, less than six hours after the shooting Clinton took to Twitter to make the...

    The liberal media has been fueling racial violence for years, publishing lies about Trayvon Martin, Hands Up Don't Shoot, the Baltimore riots, etc. It's only ironic that reporters are now the victims of the very monsters they helped to create. Alison Parker and Adam Ward were members of a fraternity that has been complicit in keeping our society honest. Maybe this double murder in Virginia of two unarmed white journalists by a black man with a gun is the wake up call they need to start doing their job and hold people accountable?
