As more is learned about the radical Islamic terrorist who murdered 49 people and injured 53 others at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., early Sunday morning, it is becoming increasingly evident that those trying to make the attack about gun control—like presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton—are simply pushing politics as usual.
By Monday morning, media reports revealed that the terrorist, who we won’t dignify by using his name, had been investigated by the FBI at least twice in the past for possible ties to terrorism and had traveled to Saudi Arabia twice for religious pilgrimages to Mecca—just like one of the San Bernardino terrorists who killed 14 last December.
In the midst of the horrific attack, the murderer phoned 911 and proclaimed his allegiance to the terrorist group ISIS. Yet Clinton, who did call the all-out assault “terrorism,” used the occasion to attack the most popular rifle in America, used by many for sport shooting, hunting and self-defense: “This is the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States, and it reminds us once more that weapons of war have no place on our streets.”
LGBTQ Gun Rights Group Responds To Orlando: “Guns Did Not Do This”
On Sunday, the Pink Pistols, a national LGBTQ organization that advocates for self-defense rights, issued a statement about the Orlando terrorist massacre, saying “knee-jerk gun-control efforts may make preventing future events harder rather than easier, as only the law-abiding potential victims will be affected by such laws.”
Gwendolyn Patton, first speaker of the Pink Pistols, wrote, “Let us stay focused on the fact that someone hated gay people so much they were ready to kill or injure so many. A human being did this … I say again, GUNS did not do this.”
Patton suggested identifying a “designated carrier,” a concealed-carry permit holder who does not drink: “It’s sad that we must consider such things, but when there are persons out there who mean us harm, we must find ways to protect ourselves within the law.”
Is Google Manipulating Search Results To Favor Hillary?
Do a Google search for “Hillary Clinton crime” and by the time you’ve typed in the first couple of letters for “crime,” you’re presented with options that include “crime reform” and “crime bill 1994.” Repeat that search on Bing or Yahoo and the results look a little different: “criminal investigation,” “criminal charges” and “crimes” are some of the items returned.
On Thursday, SourceFed posted a video documenting these findings and alleging that Google was censoring search suggestions in order to favor Clinton. “The intention is clear. Google is burying searches for terms that could have hurt Hillary Clinton in the primary elections over the past several months by manipulating recommendations on their site,” said SourceFed’s Matt Lieberman. The Washington Free Beacon also shared 10 examples of skewed Google search results.
On Friday, Google denied the allegations and said they don’t favor any candidate or cause. Yet a simple search seems to prove otherwise.
Katie Couric Still Not Backing Down
Caught red-handed in not only grossly unethical journalistic practices but likely felonious criminal activity in production of her pseudo-documentary “Under the Gun,” disgraced “journalist” Katie Couric apparently has no plans to try to make things right.
While refusing to fix the inserted eight-second pause that made pro-gun interviewees look like they had no answers, Couric last week tried to make people believe the end justifies the means.
“I can understand the objection of people who did have an issue about it,” Couric said at a breakfast last Thursday morning in New York. “Having said that, I think we have to focus on the big issue of gun violence. It was my hope that when I approached this topic that this would be a conversation starter.”
One thing is for certain, the film has been a “conversation starter”—with most of the conversation centering around Couric’s deceptive, unethical ways.
Armed Florida Woman Stops Home Invasion, Protects Her Sons
When a red van pulled up to a Palm Coast, Fla., woman’s home last Thursday afternoon, something didn’t seem quite right. And when she failed to recognize the man knocking at the front door, something seemed very wrong.
That’s because the person knocking had an accomplice, Marco Dejesus, who had crept to the back of the house, forced open the sliding glass door and entered the residence with crowbar in hand.
Once inside, however, the burglar was greeted with quite a sight. The homeowner stepped from behind the hallway wall, armed with a gun and fiercely ready to protect her two young children. It seems the pistol had the appropriate effect, sending the robber scrambling out the back door—but not before the victim was able to make note of the license plate number. Police officers quickly located the fleeing vehicle, arresting both lawbreakers and charging Dejesus with attempted burglary and criminal mischief.
