    In this world, there are powerful people who intentionally sow division and hatred. Search the term Arkancide to learn about the many people who died in strange circumstances who had got in the way of the Clintons. A weirdly-named "Dylann Roof", a charged Suboxone addict, killed 9 people in cold blood in Charleston on 6/17 night. He's a scumbag. There are strange facts surrounding this. Consider the following facts: 1) Suboxone is a drug that causes susceptibility to suggestion and control. 2) Jeb Bush had an appearance scheduled in Charleston on 6/18 morning. 3) A problem for Hilary Clinton is...

    On the heels of President Obama’s gun-control advocacy before the U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting in San Francisco, Hillary Clinton told the leaders today that the racism behind the mass murder in South Carolina isn’t isolated but systemic. (snip) “Once again, racist rhetoric has metastasized into racist violence. Now, it’s tempting, it is tempting to dismiss a tragedy like this as an isolated incident, to believe that in today’s America, bigotry is largely behind us, that institutionalized racism no longer exists. But despite our best efforts and our highest hopes, America’s long struggle with race is far from finished,” she...

    The racist madman who slaughtered nine people in a historic South Carolina church tried to kill himself after the massacre, according to the son of one of the victims. “He pointed the gun at his head and pulled the trigger, but it went ‘click,’ because the chamber was empty,” Kevin Singleton, whose mother, Myra Thompson, 59 was killed, told The Los Angeles Times . “His plan was never to leave that church.”

    A black drinking buddy of the white man accused of killing nine people at a Charleston church says the suspect told him a week earlier that he planned to shoot up a college campus in the city. The friend, Christon Scriven, told The Associated Press on Friday that he thought Dylann Roof's statements were just drunken bluster. Still, Scriven said he was concerned enough that he and another friend, Joey Meek, went out to Roof's car and retrieved his .45-caliber handgun, hiding it in an air-conditioning vent of a mobile home until they all sobered up. "He just said he...

    Saying it was time to “face hard truths about race, violence, guns and division,” Hillary Rodham Clinton called for action Thursday in response to the shooting that killed nine worshipers at a historic black church in Charleston, S.C. [Snip] “How many innocent people in our country, from little children to church members to movie theater attendees, how many people do we need to see cut down before we act?” she asked. She did not, however, offer any specific plan for reducing gun violence. [Snip] She [also] denounced anti-immigrant rhetoric, which she called "divisive," and mused about the nature of hatred...

    Please pray for those who have lost their lives in Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church, for their families and friends, and for their entire community. Our brothers and sisters in Christ are suffering, and need our prayers and support. Let’s start by spreading love rather than division. With that said, if I had to give one piece of advice to any politician, it would be that any argument starting off with “We don’t have all the facts” is one that should probably remain unspoken. Another piece of advice would be that gathering the relevant facts before speaking will avoid embarrassments like...

    (CNN)—It looks like it has happened again. A young male has allegedly killed. In this case it is nine people at a church in South Carolina. Anyone who is paying attention hears the news and thinks, "Here we go again." But why? After spending 20 years interviewing killers as a psychological expert witness in murder cases I have some thoughts about this. Males are disproportionately over-represented in the ranks of America's killers -- about 90%, in fact. Why is that? Some of it appears to lie in the biological vulnerability of males. About 30% of males (versus 9% of females)...
