The Left's Collective Spazz Attack over Gun Control

Before any motive was or could have been known in the San Bernardino attack last week, a critical mass of Democrats had convinced themselves that they knew precisely the perpetrator’s identity and motive. He was certainly male, probably white; an extremist conservative who had consumed too much National Rifle Association propaganda. When the perpetrators, plural, turned out to be none of those things, you would think that the left would impose on itself some restraint. When it was discovered that the attack was executed by two people who fit no profile other than that of radicalized Islamic terrorists, you might presume that Democrats would critically examine what led them to their shared expression of prejudice. Not only has none of that occurred, Democrats now are indulging in a collective nervous breakdown.

There’s no other way to describe the mass emotive outpouring on the left over the existence of a civilian right to firearm ownership in this country. It is a communal spasm of angst matched only by the rigorous refusal to acknowledge the California killers’ murderous ideology, one that happens to be claiming hundreds of lives amid an ongoing war on the West.

The purest expression of adolescent torment over American gun laws has been that which is ongoing over at the New York Times. Before the bodies in San Bernardino had cooled, the Times editorial board engaged in a familiar grim ritual. As has become its habit, the Times opinion writers lamented the frequency with which they feel compelled to castigate the American people for jealously guarding their freedoms in the Bill of Rights. Before the facts were known, the Times joined the president in declaring the California attack a likely preventable massacre, but only if Republicans would embrace “common sense” gun ownership reforms.

Rather than perform about-face when it was revealed that the killers were inspired by the Islamic State and had constructed dozens of improvised explosive devices, the Times not only forged ahead with its activism but determined to express even more antipathy for law-abiding citizens.

The Times isn’t alone in going completely off the deep end since it was revealed by the FBI that what took place in California was an act of radical Islamic terrorism on U.S. soil.

Fear Not America, Obama and the Good Muslims Will Save Us From the Bad Guys

The fact Obama made this speech is a clear sign of the political panic swamping the White House. They realize they have lost the narrative since Obama declared ISIS as “contained.” But Obama and his team of sycophants still believe that all he has to do is make big event speech and the people will rally to his side.  

Terror Cell With a Baby

"Before Chicago-born Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, slaughtered innocents in San Bernardino, Calif., they performed a prudent and commonplace mission of mercy: They dropped off their 6-month-old daughter with Grandma for safekeeping. The couple reportedly said they were heading to an appointment with a doctor. Surely they didn't say they'd be meeting a pathologist at an autopsy table....the murderous duo slaughtering colleagues who earlier this year had thrown a shower for their new baby."

If we believe Thursday's reports that Farook had transformed into a radical - not a madman, an ill person, a racial supremacist or any other familiar category of mass murderer - then he and Malik will force us to think with new imagination about terror operations on U.S. soil. Farook and Malik evidently didn't qualify for anyone's watch list. What's most striking isn't who they were, but who they weren't.....

This is a fraught moment for America. We want home-grown terrorism exterminated, whether its perpetrators are radicalized ideologues, rogue independents or gangbangers on the streets of Chicago. The oddity of a terror cell with a baby is but one more phenomenon we have to address with the same fearless resolve."

The Blind Donkeys of the Media

"No one on CBS or NBC or ABC or PBS or NPR or in the New York Times or the Washington Post will remind his or her audience that the Islamic State and other jihad groups consider themselves to be at war with the United States, and have explicitly and repeatedly called upon Muslims in the U.S. to commit mass murder of American civilians. 
Would anyone have wondered about the motive of a German national who slaughtered fourteen Americans on U.S. soil in 1943? Of course no one would have, but that was a long time ago. 
Now we are engaged in a great ignored war, a war that only one side is fighting, a war in which enemy combatants are tried in civilian courts – as if they were criminals, not enemy soldiers -- by a government that desperately wishes to maintain the illusion that there is no war at all." - Robert Spencer

Championship Weekend

After all the boasting, bragging, trash talk, the bullshit and the expert sports monkey predictions, it's now time for the elite teams to prove who is the cream of the crop.  It's Conference Championship weekend.  

When gazing at the teams we see defense that could substitute against all but the best NFL offenses. We see offense that has proved they can outscore the most productive offenses in the country. We also see two of the most balanced teams in college football this year, both undefeated coming into this week. We see surprise teams and perinatal favorites. That said, this is no ordinary week, and anything can happen.  

My girly intuition parts are tingling again this week. I Smell upset.

The SEC Championship

Alabama vs Florida:  Okay. let's face it.  The Gators have been mediocre at most all year. Their much vaunted defense was exposed by an LSU team running on all cylinders to be full of exploitable holes. The Tide should be able to run big on the Gators and not have to worry about their so-so passing game to pull them out. If the gators are even in this game in the 3rd quarter I'll be very surprised. This should be Derrick Henry's Heisman Trophy game.

The ACC Championship

Clemson vs North Carolina: As I said above, my girly intuition parts are tingling and I'm going against the grain on this one. UNC has, like Oklahoma, quietly and convincingly put away their opponents all year.  While not the strongest of schedules, UNC has looked very good doing it. Clemson is by far the most balanced team in college football and has earned their #1 seed , but I think UNC's ability to make big plays could counter Clemson's excellent defense. I think it's a 3 point game. I'm going with UNC.

The Big Ten Championship

Michigan St. vs Iowa: I've thought a lot about this game. Iowa hasn't played the toughest schedule this year, but are undefeated. Michigan St. on the other hand has been inconsistent, but now have their QB back from injury and looked invincible last week.  As much as I'd like to see the Hawkeyes top off a great season, I'm just not convinced they can outplay The Spartans. I kinda hope I'm wrong about this one....

After running the table last week and going 4-0, I finished the regular season 25-6. Not bad for a little Belgian girl who never even knew what American Football was until she was 16.

Tin Foil Hat Report #54 - San Bernardino Edition

Guess they forgot they were listening to the geniuses at MSNBC
who can get worked up at the sight of a Popsicle melting....

But we all know it was really "Workplace Violence" because Farook’s stapler was stolen one too many times. So he just gathered up the little wife, his AR-15's, protective vests and masks, pipe bombs and enough ammo to start a small war that he just kept around for home protection and got some retribution. Yeah, that's the ticket.....

And this bit of brilliance from the leading Democrat candidate
for President of the United States!
