It's gotta be the gun's fault.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week, then you of course know what happened on live TV Wednesday morning at about 6:45am. A 24-year old news reporter and her 27-year old cameraman were shot and killed, and the woman they were interviewing for a puff piece for the Chamber of Commerce was wounded, shot in the back trying to flee. She is recovering following surgery. 

The shooter was a former co-worker of theirs, let go from the southern Virginia TV station a while back for being a general pain in the ass. Difficult to work with and easy to anger, with a huge chip on his shoulder and a persecution complex about being a gay black man, they say he had problems working with several coworkers. He was finally fired and had to be escorted off the premises by the police afterwards when he took it poorly.

 Seemingly the time since his firing was spent seething with rage, blaming his former coworkers, and planning this murder. He didn’t just shoot former co-workers at the station; there might have been security there. No, he planned an ambush at a remote story location where there would be no one around but the victims. He wanted the act to be horrifying and notorious, on live television. The husband of the lady being interviewed was watching TV at home. The fiancĂ©e of one of the victims was at the studio watching it happen live. This dickbag even attached a GoPro camera to himself to make sure there was a shooter’s POV footage. Once the victims were on the ground, he executed them with shots to the head. No, this wasn’t a heat of the moment crime of opportunity. This was a premeditated execution. 

After the killing, he then faxed over a lengthy manifesto to ABC News and started driving his rented Chevy Sonic, long known as the high-speed getaway vehicle of choice for crazed gunmen, towards the DC area. Ironically, while driving north he was passing the scores of media vehicles headed south to the scene of his crime.

Eventually he was spotted and a short chase ensued, and he did what nutless cravens generally do when cornered: shot himself in the head. He died at the hospital at about 1:30 that afternoon. Good riddance. He at least saved the taxpayers the cost of a trial and his maintenance and upkeep in prison.
His manifesto cited that he felt discriminated against as a gay black man, and he even had the stones to blame the recent shooting at the church here in Charleston as his tipping point. Oy vey.

And of course, this has to be politicized. The shells hadn’t finished hitting the ground yet when the Left started screaming for more gun control, because that’s their answer to everything. More laws. More legislation. More stripping of liberty from law-abiding gun owners who will never commit a crime. 

Someone has broken the law. Time for people to froth at the mouth about making new laws making illegal acts MORE illegal. Because breaking one or a dozen laws doesn't stop people from committing crimes, but adding that one more law into the equation will. Because we must be seen to be doing SOMETHING, don’t we? Regardless of whether it accomplishes anything or solves the problem, at least we did something.

Ah, yes. Employee is a pain in the ass, gets fired, gets escorted off premises by cops, comes back and kills former coworkers and then sends manifesto to the network blaming the Charleston shooting as his trigger. I knew that this shit would somehow be blamed on the Confederate Flag. And of course, ban guns too, because well, more laws...

White guy shoots black guy, especially if black guy robbed a store and assaulted a cop, and it's all racism and Black Lives Matter. Don't bake a cake for a gay couple and it's a hate crime and they sue you out of business. Don't pay for abortions for your employees and they try to shut your company down. Gay black dude films himself on a GoPro killing his former white coworkers on live TV, and it’s MORE GUN CONTROL!!!!!! My god, but you liberals are stupid children.

The NYPD said it stepped up its presence around TV stations on Wednesday in New York as a precaution, because a guy shooting former coworkers in rural southern Virginia automatically meant the NYC news people were next.

"Out of an abundance of caution the NYPD's Counterterrorism Bureau, Critical Response Vehicles and Hercules Teams have been deployed to television news outlets in New York City," said Deputy Commissioner for Counterterrorism and Intelligence John J. Miller. "This was ordered following the shooting this morning in Virginia. While there is no indication of any threat to media outlets beyond this incident, we have provided an additional layer of security until we have a fuller understanding of the motive behind the Virginia incident." 

While I believe in a well-equipped police force, do you really need an M-113? That's ridiculous.
Because, again, they have to be seen to be doing something. They have to justify their budgets and expenditures, so deploying SWAT Teams to all the media outlets gets them boo-coo face time on TV, ingratiates themselves to the media as their Loyal Protectors, and makes the public forget unpleasant stuff the recent Worcester, Massachusetts SWAT team screwup where they raided the wrong house and held an innocent family at gunpoint.

Yes, the masses must be appeased and it must appear that something is being done. Politicians must call for laws because it looks like they are doing something. Police departments will deploy expensive highly trained units to do absolutely nothing because it looked like they did something.
Look, this guy was nuts. As in crazy, effed-up, bonkers…. He wasn’t just pissed off, he was insane. We don’t have a gun control problem here in America. We have a mental health problem. But it’s more important to politicize this event and use it to further the liberal agenda of gun control.

An insane white guy with a racist agenda and an attachment to a flag kills people and it gets blamed on racism and the flag gets banned and history gets erased, because it fit the liberal agenda. But oh noes! A gay black man? We can’t ban the Rainbow Flag! And it can’t be racially motivated because only white people are racist!!! BLAME THE GUN!!!! THE GUN DID IT!!!! Because that fits the narrative of the liberal agenda.

Back in May, a black man shot a white deputy in the head without provocation at a gas station in Moncks Corner, SC, and was later killed in a standoff with police. No one made the rounds of the media calling it racist or racially motivated. Last night a black man executed a Houston-area deputy at a gas station without provocation. No one is rioting or calling it racist. Is it because the men who were shot were cops, and white, and the shooters were black? C’mon, liberal-controlled media, where’s the outrage?

Where’s the outrage in Chicago where black-on-black violence is so common that it doesn’t even make national news anymore? To whit: This year’s July 4th weekend saw 9 dead and 53 wounded. The weekend of July 24th -27th saw 7 killed and 28 wounded and the weekend before that had 4 killed and 29 wounded. Last weekend it was 6 dead and 35 wounded. But you don’t hear these numbers on the nightly national news. The dried up old yentas aren’t discussing it on The View. How about that guy who replaced Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, as it was the News Source Of Choice for Low Information Liberal Gen Y types? Is Bill Maher talking about it when not slagging everything Conservative? John Oliver, funny though he may be and as influential as he is becoming in his commentaries, will most assuredly talk shit about every single Republican candidate for 2016 before ever whispering a Chicago crime stat. The stats are out there, but you have to go find them. The Left ain’t gonna interrupt their narratives to speak the truth. 

Instead, they just say simple things like “Take the guns”, and the idiot sheeple out there eat it up. Next thing you know, you have an unarmed populace who can’t fight back against tyranny when the government decides it wants to take more of your rights, and in the meanwhile you’ll also have an unarmed populace that followed the laws and the criminals will still have their guns and will prey upon them with impunity. 

Not on my watch, pal.

The Trump Media Circus

Top THAT, Vladimir Putin...

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. Donald Trump may have stepped in a pile of dookie deep enough that he may not be able to easily shake it off his loafer. Trump has made a side career out of pissing people off, ancillary to his real estate and media fortunes. He’s never been afraid to just shoot his mouth off with zero regard for the consequences, because when you have both Eff You Money and Eff Me Money, you can generally say whatever you want without fear of repercussions because what are they gonna do, fire you?

In fact, they’ve tried to fire him. The Obama Lackey Liberal Pansies at NBC opted to cancel Trump’s The Apprentice TV show, probably because no one was really even watching it and not because Trump spouted off about illegal immigrants and the number of illegals who pour in from Mexico to rape and murder our citizens. But, over the last six months, America has become the Land Of The Sissies. All we do is look for things to be offended by, and then we either attack the alleged offenders or we capitulate in the face of the attackers. But I digress.

They aren’t exactly canceling Trump’s other show, the one that people actually do watch, Celebrity Apprentice. Nooo, instead they’re just replacing him as host, and the name being bandied around the most as the new host is comedian George Lopez. Why Lopez? Not because folks were clamoring for another Lopez show. After his sitcom got canceled in 2007 after five seasons, he had a short-lived two seasons as a late night talk show host, and his newest show made a whole 10 episodes before they pulled the plug. No, Lopez is being looked at because he is Mexican-American and seen as safe, a soft and cuddly comic, the voice of Papi in Beverley Hills Chihuahua…who was quoted onstage this week saying “Fuck that Puto (whore)” in reference to Trump. Soft and cuddly indeed. Oh, hey, wait a second...puto can also mean "faggot" or "male prostitute"? Oh, snap! You don't see anyone calling Lopez out on that do you? The HuffPo kinda whispered it, but no one noticed but me.

Careful, Lopez....mess with fire and you might get burned.
 Hispanic TV network Univision has decided to drop its telecast of the Miss USA pageant (which Trump owns) and severed all other business ties to Trump on June 25. Trump has since filed a $500 million lawsuit, accusing the company of breach of contract and defamation. Trump has the money and the lawyers to bleed Univision dry in a case that could drag for years.

Ever since Trump announced his bid for the White House, seeking the GOP nomination, there has been a veritable shit storm on both sides. Why? Because Trump is a wild card, a loose cannon of sorts. He can’t be bought and can’t be controlled, and that scares the everloving shit out of both the Establishment GOP Karl Rove acolytes and the Democrat Leftists. And this is precisely what Trump wants. I used to think he was just a bloviating blowhard. Now I can't wit to see what he says next.

Disdainful Rove is disdainful
In my humble, yet correct, opinion, Trump knows he isn’t going to win the popular vote. He’s too polarizing. I don’t even think he even wants to win. No, he is in it to stay in the media spotlight (he’s been an attention whore for decades) but more importantly is the Big Picture Reason. And what would that be?

I believe, deep down, Donald John Trump, Sr. loves this country and wants to see it succeed. A rising tide floats all boats. And knowing he isn’t going to win everyone over to his side, instead he is gonna shove every problem we have into the spotlight. Trump is going to bring up and shed light on every ugly, nasty, potentially embarrassing hot potato elephant in the room issue that The Left is terrified Joe Voter will realize they have orchestrated and that the progressive jellybacks in the Establishment GOP are too spineless to address. 

 At first the Leftist Media was content to call Trump a front-runner. Why? Because they thought he was going to be a clown show who would fizzle out and embarrass the Republicans in the process, and move the mindless masses to their masters in the DNC. You see, we’re thought of as stupid by the Left and their media minions, and they tell us who the supposed frontrunners are and most of the sheeple out there believe it. They tell you who they want the frontrunners to be and too damned many times the public has wagged their tails like obedient dogs and followed along. They handpick their Donkey Party candidate and then seek out the easiest to beat, or the most pliant, weak-willed middle of the road flip flop progressive squish that they can control should the GOP win. That’s who the GOP frontrunner will be according to them. 

Problem is, we are still a year away from the deepest darkest scariest part of the race, and just under sixteen months from Election Day itself. We still need to whittle down the Clownfish Parade of GOP Wannabe candidates. It’s way too early for an honest, no-shit GOP frontrunner. Most will run out of money; not a problem for Trump. A couple will fall victim to smear campaigns; Trump doesn’t give a royal F-word about this because he is a veteran of getting smeared and likes to fire back with both barrels. A few will just fall to the wayside because they are retreads from the last election who crapped out four years ago and are doomed to crap out again due to lack of voter support, and some will just fade away due to lack of name recognition.

Like I said, provided he can keep from stepping on his wang, Trump is here for a while. He ain’t going anywhere. He is gonna bring up issue after issue and FORCE both sides to address them. While the GOP was busy sitting on their thumbs as Obeezy and Company sold us up the economic river with that craptastical trade agreement and gave Iran the Bomb while letting them flood the market with oil to fund ISIS and world terrorism, while we were holding Caitlyn Jenner’s nut sack in our clammy hands as we allowed the NAACP to begin eradicating the history of a third of America’s states because it was offensive as it patently ignores the rampant black on black crime of Democrat controlled cities, no one had the cherries to discuss the burgeoning problem of illegal immigration. No one but Trump.

That can't be comfortable in your bum.
 Trump met it head on and caused a shit storm for daring to mention the frighteningly large number of rapists and murderers that flood into our country from Meh-hee-ko. Yeah, the Latin world calls him a puto and worse, and even started marketing a Trump-faced butt plug (see above picture), and the same Latin world said exactly Jack Shit as an illegal who had been arrested and deported five times murdered Kate Steinle in the Liberal Sanctuary City of San Francisco. Where were they when the illegal from Mexico who had been deported four times killed his wife with a hammer in Laredo, Texas a couple weeks ago? Where were they when 17-year old Jamiel Shaw Jr was murdered by an illegal who had just been released from jail the night before instead of being deported? Y’know, under Obama, there’ve been over 121 murders as of last month attributed to illegals released by his administration. The Latin world, and Obeezy, has done Juan Mierda to stem the tide. 

Yeah, while America was distracted by bright shiny objects or smoke & mirrors, only one person was bringing up illegal immigration as an issue. 

As I said earlier, Trump stepped in some deep shit over the weekend as he spoke out against John McCain. I’ve read a couple different accounts of what may or may not have been said, but the basic gist is that Trump disparaged McCain for having been a POW and that he prefers people who haven’t been captured. Very poor taste in off the cuff remarks, Donald. You can list a LOT of things wrong about McCain but it’s not cool to knock him for having been a POW and making it sound like all former POWs are turds in your eyes. Dude, not cool.

You can be sure that shit just got real when the Washington Post, the second biggest liberal rag sheet after the New York Times, defends John McCain against you. Funny thing about this WaPo article, though: they bash Trump for having done draft deferment by going to college to avoid Vietnam, but isn’t that what Bill Clinton did? And isn’t Bill Clinton the very essence of what a modern progressive liberal El Presidente should be? So why is it okay for Bill Clinton to draft dodge in college but not okay for Trump? The article also chides Trump for being Ivy League, yet John Kerry went to Yale, as did Hillary, as did Bill Clinton for a while... and then there’s Harvard, where folks like the Obamas, Al Gore, and the Kennedy clan learned their vile trade. Princeton gave us She-Obama (a double-dipper), and Democrat Disasterpiece Eliot Spitzer. Dartmouth begat Former Treasury Idiot Tim Geithner and Hillary shadow Kirsten Gillibrand. Columbia? Lord Obama again (Jesus, is there an Ivy League school that he didn't smoke pot at?) and a list of notable Lefties like Erskine Bowles, Madeline Albright, George Pataki, David Paterson, FDR, Eric Holder, George Stephanopoulos, and Chelsea Clinton. So don’t pull the Ivy League bullshit, WaPo; it more than piles up on the Left.

Because Trump is kicking everyone’s ass in the polls. In fact, he could easily beat the dogsnot out of Killary the She-Beast of Benghazi and Comrade Bernie Sanders of Communist Vermont. That terrifies the Left and so they must stop Trump. That way, they can have a nice, easily managed squish more to their liking or someone they can just beat down with negative press. And the Establishment GOP is right in lock step, hand in hand with their liberal buddies in denouncing Trump because they want and need him out of the way to further themselves before they run out of money and time.
Meanwhile, instead of taking the cue from Trump and actually speaking their own platform opinions on anything Trump speaks about, the couple dozen or so GOP Wannabe candidates are either chiding Trump or staying silent. And that, my friends, is why we keep losing.

The eyes of the world are on you, Donald. Bring up every ugly nasty issue you can, while you can, and pave the way for the serious candidate who, so far, has yet to rise to the top, in part because it’s too early amongst a field that is way overpopulated and in part because the Establishment GOP progressives are doing their level best to suppress certain candidates with help from the liberal media.
In the past you have donated to the Ted Cruz war chest and he hasn't spoken out against you in the press, unlike, say Linzy Grahamnesty...whose long-standing bromance with McCain is legendary.

And a note to the rest of you GOP Wannabe types out there: start speaking up. Your silence on the recent Iran Nuke deal, the Asian trade deal, the eradication of Confederate history, illegal immigration, the teror attack on our military recruiters, and every other issue affecting us all, is being noted.

We're watching. We're waiting.

The party we really need right now...
