OBAMA OPENLY ADVOCATES FOR GUN CONFISCATION…: ‘This Is Something We Should Politicize’
In a 15-minute statement, Obama stressed that the US is “the only advanced country on Earth that sees these kinds of mass shootings every couple of months.” He praised the gun control efforts in Australia, a nation that conducted a mass confiscation of firearms from its citizenry.
Obama then went on to give the media an order to make gun control more ‘popular‘, which was almost immediately complied with:
Media no longer reports the news. They report what they think the news SHOULD be. Now they openly take orders. https://t.co/EqV5ph8kbP

Mr. Beauchamp was called out with figures about Chicago, figures that this blog regularly has been citing about Obama’s hometown of Chicago. In fact, last June Obama called for gun control again and this blog noted the lack of discussion about the “4 Killed, At Least 22 Wounded in Weekend Shootings Across Chicago”. Obama clearly has selective shooter outrage. Related: Black Lives Matter… Except In Chicago
Our media is utterly disgusting and useless.
Umpqua Community College is a gun free zone, which will suspend, expel or turn students over to law enforcement who violate their ‘code of conduct’.
The gunman, identified as 26 year-old Chris Harper- Mercer, singled out Christians during his shooting spree. He is dead and when alive, was clearly an unhinged piece of work that clearly had mental issues, but that won’t matter. The media is going to zero in on this bit mentioned by the Daily Mail UK: “According to his profile, Harper-Mercer is ‘mixed race’ and a ‘conservative Republican’.”
When politicizing is acceptable and when it is not:
“In the last 24 hours, we’ve seen Democrats screaming about the politicization of four Americans killed more than three years ago in a woefully unprotected consulate in the middle of a failed state created by the policies of a Democratic president and their leading presidential contender, and at almost the same time the leader of the Democratic Party demanding we politicize a shooting that just ended without bothering to wait for any facts at all. Try wrapping your mind around that.” (Source: Hot Air)

Hillary campaign organizer Sarah Sterner was captured on hidden camera stating: “We don’t want to make our focus voter registration because then we have to like register everyone regardless of whether they’re supporters or not.” The Clinton campaign “maintains that its policy is to register all voters, regardless of their preference in candidates.” Yet paid organizer Sarah Sterner was caught instructing staffers to ask potential supporters “Hey are you a Hillary supporter?

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE LINKFEST:
The moderators ask the dumbest questions possible with as much snark and leftist panache one can muster. I don’t know what came over Megyn Kelly last night, but several times I had to double-check that I wasn’t watching a special edition of The View. Still, this was one of the most lively debates I can remember in a long time.
If I had to summarize, this debate was to lift up Jeb Bush, push down Trump, give a boost to Kasich so he can hand Ohio to Bush, keep Cruz and Carson from getting any air time – my God, we can’t let real and consistent conservatives talk! Carson’s closing statement was very good. Cruz nailed every question he was asked, which were far too few. Kasich sounded like a Democrat more often than not.
Moderators were sure to ask Scott Walker questions that might make him twist in the wind just a wee bit, Rand Paul picked fights with everyone, Huckabee was Huckabee, Chris Christie sounded good but really didn’t answer his questions, and Rubio was very consistent.
Winner: Hard to say. Rubio was the most consistent and hit Hillary the most — at least when the moderators let him talk.
Honestly, I think Carly Fiorina might have won… and she was in the early debate held with the 7 who didn’t make it to the main event.
Loser: Fox news.

FIRST GOP PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE GREAT LINES AND ZINGERS
* I am including some from the pre-debate with the 7 candidates who didn’t make the Fox ‘cut’.
Hillary Clinton lies about Benghazi, she lied about emails, she is still defending Planned Parenthood, and she is still her party’s frontrunner. – Carly Fiorina
The potential of this nation and too many Americans is being crushed by the weight, the power, the cost, the complexity, the ineptitude, the corruption of the federal government. – Carly Fiorina
I cannot say. I have to respect the person that, if it’s not me, the person that wins, if I do win, and I’m leading by quite a bit, that’s what I want to do. I can totally make that pledge. If I’m the nominee, I will pledge I will not run as an independent. But – and I am discussing it with everybody – but I’m, you know, talking about a lot of leverage. We want to win, and we will win. But I want to win as the Republican. I want to run as the Republican nominee. – Donald Trump (when asked if he would support whoever the Republican nominee ends up being)
God has blessed the Republican Party with some very good candidates. The Democrats can’t even find one. – Sen. Marco Rubio
I also believe we need a fence. The problem is if El Chapo builds a tunnel under the fence, we have to be able to deal with that too. And that’s why you need an e-verify system and you need an entry-exit tracking system and all sorts of other things to prevent illegal immigration. – Sen. Marco Rubio (on immigration)
I’ll tell you what, I’ve evolved on many issues over the years and y’know who else has, Ronald Reagan. – Donald Trump
It’s sad that Russia knows more about Hillary’s email server than the U.S. Congress. – Gov. Scott Walker
A majority of the candidates on this stage have supported amnesty. I have never supported amnesty, and I led the fight against Chuck Schumer’s gang of eight amnesty legislation in the Senate. – Sen. Ted Cruz
Leading from behind is a disaster. We need a commander in chief that will stand up to our enemies. – Sen. Ted Cruz
If you wage war on America, than you are signing your death warrant. – Sen. Ted Cruz
We need a commander in chief that speaks the truth. We will not defeat radical Islamic terrorism so long as we have a president unwilling to utter the words, “radical Islamic terrorism”. – Sen. Ted Cruz
I believe the American people are looking for someone to speak the truth. If you’re looking for someone to go to Washington, to go along to get along, to get… to agree with the career politicians in both parties who get in bed with the lobbyists and special interests, then I ain’t your guy.
– Sen. Ted Cruz
If I’m our nominee, how is Hillary Clinton gonna lecture me about living paycheck to paycheck? I was raised paycheck to paycheck. How is she — how is she gonna lecture me — how is she gonna lecture me about student loans? I owed over $100,000 just four years ago. – Sen. Marco Rubio
There is no such thing as a politically correct war. – Dr. Ben Carson
I haven’t said anything about me being the only one to do anything, so let’s try that. I’m the only one to separate Siamese twins. The only one to operate on babies while they were still in their mother’s womb. The only one to take out half of a brain, although you would think if you went to Washington that someone had beat me to it. But I’m very hopeful that I’m not the only one who will pick up the torch of freedom. Because freedom is not free. – Dr. Ben Carson
The skin doesn’t make them who they are. The hair doesn’t make them who they are. And it’s time for us to move beyond that. Our strength comes from our unity. We are the United States of America, not the divided states. Those who want to destroy us are trying to divide us, and we shouldn’t let them do it. – Dr. Ben Carson
The military is not a social experience. The purpose of the military is to kill people and break things.
– Mike Huckabee (Transgender in Military Question)
We should “protect children instead of rip up their body parts and sell them like they’re parts to a Buick.. – Mike Huckabee
ISIS rides around in a billion dollars worth of U.S. Humvees. It’s a disgrace. We’ve got to stop… we shouldn’t fund our enemies, for goodness sakes.
– Sen. Rand Paul
I don’t trust President Obama with our records. I know you gave him a big hug, and if you want to give him a big hug again, go right ahead…
– Sen. Rand Paul (to Gov. Christie after Christie defended the mass record collection being done on Americans)
Here’s the problem, governor. Here’s the problem, governor. You fundamentally misunderstand the Bill of Rights. – Sen. Rand Paul (to Christie)
If it weren’t for me, you wouldn’t be talking about illegal immigration. – Donald Trump
This country owes $19 trillion and they need somebody like me to straighten out that mess. – Donald Trump
If Congress wants to mess with the retirement program, why don’t we let them start with their own retirement program. – Mike Huckabee
When you have people that are cutting Christians’ heads off, when you have a world, at the border and in so many places … that it’s medieval times … We don’t have time for tone. We have to go out and get the job done. – Donald Trump (Response to Jeb Bush saying he is ‘devisive’)
The court has ruled and I said, “we’ll accept it”. And guess what? I just went to a wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be gay. Because somebody doesn’t think the way I do doesn’t mean that I can’t care about them and love them… That’s what we’re taught when we have strong faith. Issues like that are planted to divide us. I’m gonna love my daughters no matter what they do. God gives me unconditional love, I’m gonna give it to my family and the friends and the people around me. -Gov. John Kasich (on Gay Marriage)
They call me Veto Corleone… because I vetoed 2,500 separate line items in the budget. – Jeb Bush (this line wasn’t good or a zinger, it drew groans)
MEANWHILE…IN CHICAGO: 1 dead, 5 wounded in Chicago shootings
AT THE BOTTOM OF THE ARTICLE:
Shortly before 4 p.m., a 15-year-old boy shot himself in the leg in the 6700 block of South Western Avenue in the Marquette Park neighborhood.
The boy, who has documented gang affiliations, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where his condition was stabilized, Trainor said.
BUT LET’S ALL LISTEN TO AMY SCHUMER CALLING FOR MORE GUN CONTROL…
The cop was white, the shooter was black.
Chicago shooting victims: 1,645 from JAN. 1, 2015 – AUG. 5, 2015
Chicago Homicides: 273 from JAN. 1, 2015 – PRESENT
Legendary wrestling champion “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has died at 61, World Wrestling Entertainment has confirmed.
The WWE Hall of Famer passed away in his Hollywood, Calif. home after suffering a heart attack in his sleep Thursday night. He was discovered on Friday, TMZ reported.
Piper, who also went by the name “Hot Rod” which was often seen blazoned across his shirt, had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2006 but last fall said that he was cancer free.

READY FOR HILLARY?: David Brock, a Clinton enemy from the ’90s, is now integral to Hillary’s run
Brock guides a network of pro-Clinton “super PACs,” mega-donors and opposition researchers that operates outside the confines of federal restrictions on campaign spending. At the center is Media Matters, his decade-old nonprofit group that meticulously monitors and counters conservative media, political attacks on liberal politicians and – more recently – unflattering stories about Clinton in the mainstream press.
“What David does that is so successful is show up the mainstream media for being lazy,” said former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who leaned heavily on Brock for help when he became chairman of the Democratic National Committee in 2005. “He forces them to confront the facts that get omitted.”
I don’t know if the author intended this article to be a comedy piece, but this section most definitely qualified. This news means we’re going to see paranoia taken to new highs….Where do people think the idea for attack watch came from?
MEANWHILE…IN CHICAGO: 10 killed, 54 wounded in gun violence over Fourth of July weekend in Chicago
“Among those killed was a 7-year-old boy shot in the chest during an attack aimed at his father, according to police. The boy died during a 9-hour stretch in which half of the 64 gunshot victims were wounded. Five of those people died after being shot and the other 27 were wounded between about 9:20 p.m. Saturday and 4:45 a.m. Sunday, according to police.”
Chicago SunTimes reports 9 dead, 53 injured, but more background on why the boy was shot:
“Police said Sunday the bullet that fatally wounded 7-year-old Amari Brown on the Fourth of July was meant for his father. Both Amari and the 26-year-old woman were shot in the chest at 11:55 p.m. in the 1100 block of North Harding, police said.
The boy’s father, Antonio Brown, is a ranking gang member with 45 previous arrests and was not cooperating with police as of Sunday afternoon as they tried to find his son’s killer, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Sunday, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.”
Where is the #BlackLivesMatter protest and outrage? Or do black lives only matter when the shooter is white?
