Mass Shootings and Random Acts of Violence

I’ve long been a strong advocate of an armed populace as the best means of self-defense. I also believe it is by far the best deterrent and way to stop both mass shootings and terrorist attacks involving firearms.
Back when I first became interested in the topic of mass shootings, however, there weren’t as many, and at least here in America. It was largely relegated to the occasional insane person run amok. Aside from 9/11, we did not yet have to worry Muslims conducting their own mass shootings in the name of terrorism.
Now we do, and it looks to get a whole lot worse before it ever gets better.
Society has several tools available to deter terrorism and mass shootings:
– Intelligence (costly, even when highly focused)
– – requirements
– – planning and direction
– – collection
– – processing and exploitation
– – analysis and production
– – dissemination
– Security (the physical deterrence and protection of people 
– – Law enforcement (federal, state, county, and local)
– – Personal protection (planning, training, and weapons)
So, should we make it more difficult for people to obtain guns?  Should we reduce magazine capacities?  Increase background checks?  Reduce calibers?  Limit ammunition capability?  Create more “gun-free” zones?  Mandate the use of “smart” guns?  Increase waiting periods?  Ban certain types of firearms based on their appearance or general level of public trepidation?  Put a cop on every street corner?
anti-gun desperation
No.  NONE of these measures has proven effective in either deterring or stopping mass shootings or random acts of violence, and most of them significantly increase the cost of obtaining a firearm to the average law-abiding citizen who seeks protection.
By far the most immediate and most effective deterrent against both mass shootings and random acts of violence, whether the result of insanity or terrorism, is a well-armed general populace comprised of law-abiding U.S. citizens who are both properly armed and well-trained.
The greatest threat to our security comes not from the lunatics and terrorists, but rather, from those second-guessers, the Monday-morning armchair quarterbacks who are NOT well-trained (if at all) yet who for whatever blitheringly idiotic reason feel like they’re *somehow* qualified to force their opinions down the throats of an otherwise free and well-trained general populace, usually in the form of ideas that sound good but either do nothing or actually do more harm than the harm they’re supposed to address.
mass shootingsThroughout history, a well-armed/trained populace has always been the most effective deterrent and counter to mass shootings and random acts of violence.


A former United States Navy Pilot (Naval Flight Officer/Aviator) asks Hillary Clinton a VALID question.

As a former United States Air Force Navigator (Air Force Flight Office/Aviator) with nearly identical training, background and security clearance, I wholeheartedly concur with the point he makes: “As a Naval flight officer I held a Top Secret Compartmentalized Information (TS/SCI) clearance that provided me access to materials and information hHillary Clintonighly sensitive to our warfighting capabilities. Had I communicated this information not following prescribed protocols, I would have been prosecuted and imprisoned. Secretary Clinton, how can you expect those such as myself who were and are entrusted with America’s most sensitive information to have any confidence in your leadership as president when you clearly corrupted our national security?

Her response DOES NOT MATTER.

What matters is her disdain and the vitriol painted all over her face. This military officer raises a perfectly valid point to which Hillary’s only response is utter disdain. If that’s her BEST response to our nation’s military in a public forum during during an election year, immediatly prior to the election, how do you think she will respond to valid military advice once in office?

She doesn’t care. She ALONE thinks she knows better than the MILLIONS of American members of the Armed Forces, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, and all other highly trained people with exceptional skills and experience in all our agencies entrusted with such information.

SHE JUST DOESN’T GET IT. She is oblivious to the fact that certain information MUST be protected at all costs, that both American and foreign lives are at stake should that information get out, and that some information, if released, could lead to war, costing tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, and even millions of American lives.

SHE DOESN’T GET IT. She is absolutely CLUELESS, and the lives of our sons and daughters (if not our own) hang in the balance.

Her own attitude and rampantly criminal behavior has utterly disqualified herself from having access to ANY classified information, yet she wants to be the President of the United States? Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces?

She is utterly, absolutely PATHETIC. Totally unqualified for the position. In fact, forty years of her own experience and behavior DISQUALIFIES her, beginning with her being FIRED from the Watergate investigation for “gross ethical violations” to her being fired, by Obama, no less, for the same damned thing as Secretary of State. If she were to apply for a job involving access to classified information in ANY country, no country in the WORLD would EVER hire her, including the United States of America.

If you’re voting for Johnson, STOP. The goal is no longer about voting for your favorite candidate. The goal is to prevent Hillary from getting into office AT ALL COSTS. She absolutely can NOT be entrusted with classified information, much less the vaunted and critical position as the executive office of the world’s most powerful country.

This isn’t a popularity contest, people. This issue is extremely serious and the stakes are very, very high. You own lives, and the lives of millions of other Americans, including your children are DEFINITELY hanging in the balance.

We live in a global economy. Trump has already established good relations with both Russia and China. His unparalled successs with 515 successful businesses and just 5 failures is absolutely unheard of in the business world, where less tha 20% of all ventures succeed. Trump’s success rate blows past all odds at 99.029%, putting him well into the top 1% of most successful businessmen of all time. By comparison, all Hillary has “accomplished” is the widespread, wholesale, and TRAITOROUS trade of American favors compromising our national security in exchange for millions, if not billions of dollars in foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative. If you don’t believe me, just go to YouTube and search Clinton Cash for the scathingly detailed and accurate revelation of Hillary’s and Bill’s horrendous violations of our nation’s most precious endeavors (it’s called “traitorism,” people). Alternatively, just follow the link:

Hillary Clinton absolutely MUST be stopped AT ALL COSTS, and you can NOT acomplish that by voting for Johnson.

Only Donald J. Trump has the backing to win this election, but ONLY if you actually get out and VOTE for him.

We’ve been down this road not once, but FIVE TIMES in the last forty years, and it has ALWAYS gotten us NOWHERE. It’s time to GET OFF the madness train and do something RIGHT for a change. VOTE TRUMP.

Thank you.

Where is Our Enemy?

Contrary to popular misconception, I do NOT hate all Muslims. In fact, I don’t hate ANY Muslims.
I DO, however, “hate that which is evil and cling to that which is good.” – Romans 12:9
This begs the question, “What is evil?”
As Justin Tolomeo, acting special agent in charge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Phoenix, said in a statement: “People who are plotting to death to Americaharm America and Americans are no longer a world away.” According to a variety of sources ranging from several within our federal government to various security think tanks, somewhere between 3% and 30% of Muslims currently in the United States would take innocent American lives given the right opportunity. Tens of thousands of Muslims were certainly observed cheering in the streets when Muslims attacked all Americans on September 11, 2001.
I’d call that evil, and encourage you to remember that such evil is already here in America, among us.
So what are we to do? Kill them all? If we did that, America would probably not survive the ensuing global backlash.
I would love to be able to differentiate between the good ones and the bad ones, but that’s just not possible. The problem involves taqiyya, the Islamic practice of deceiving your enemy. They’re apparently very good at it, having fooled the American government many times, including at the security checkpoints leading to those four fateful flights on September 11, 2001, eluding security at the Boston Marathon, attacking our recruiting centers, our hospitals, and many more.
When your enemy is inside your borders, and there’s no way to discern the difference between your enemy and a peaceful Muslim neighbor until it’s too late, what is an honest, law-abiding American citizen to do?
Remember, we didn’t start this war. Islam waged war against the rest of the world for 400 years before the Western world throughout Europe grew Jihad is their dutytired of the bloodshed and mounted a counter-offensive we know as the Crusades, kicking their butts back to the Middle East. It has only been in the last century, with a boldness and wealth resulting from oil, that they have resumed their global conquest.
So, again, what’s an honest, law-abiding American citizen to do?
Buy a firearm. Make sure it’s good, simple, and reliable. Get the best training possible. Know how to use it, when to use it, where to use it, and just as importantly, when not to use it. Train often, carry it with you whenever possible, and be ready at a moment’s notice.
Just remember this: Islam knows no bounds, and Muslims can be unbelievable cowards. They have often strapped bombs to their children, much like this smiling young girl, to do their dirty work for them.
American Muslim Girl
So good luck, God bless, and Carry On.

Obama’s State of the Union Address 2015

Here’s a short, two-minute clip which is reasonably indicative of Obama’s entire speech:

Note the accusatory glares, filled with disgust, of both Biden and Boehner after he claims, “I have prohibited torture.”

Note the stony glares of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, those men who are responsible for prosecuting wars and military actions as directed by civilian leaders, but who are also responsible for the lives and safety of the men and women they send into combat or hostile fire areas, when Obama says, “It’s time to close Gitmo.” They, along with the American people, if not people all over the world, know full well that numerous recent terrorist attacks were committed at the hands of some of the Islamic terrorists Obama recently released, not “transferred,” from Gitmo.

Incredibly, Obama makes many other patently false claims in just a little over two minutes:

1. “As Americans, we…” Simply including himself as an American is a lie. He was born in Kenya, as he as let slip many times over the last seven years. He was raised in Indonesia, where he was indoctrinated into Islam and where he learned perfect

2.  “I have prohibited torture.” Torture was first outlawed on a global scale by the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, forty-three years before Obama was even born. The U.S. was party to it, as were obama liestwenty-seven other countries. We’ve been party to every widespread prohibition against torture ever since.

3.  “I have worked to make sure our use of new technology like drones is properly constrained.”  This is pure bullshit.  He horrendously abused the drone strike option, killing thousands of innocent women and children, because he committed the same mistake as did White House officials during Vietnam:  He tried prosecuting the war from the White House.  That has never worked.  If Obama were actually American, he might have learned that from his history books as I did.

4.  “We speak out against the deplorable anti-Semitism that has resurfaced in certain parts of the world.”  Since the reformation of Israel in 1947, Obama is the ONLY President who has utterly, overtly, and vehemently refused to support Israel in any fashion whatsoever.  Talk about “anti-Semitism…”  Sheesh!

5.  “We continue to reject offensive stereotypes of Muslims…”  And do we continue to reject offensive stereotypes of Christians?  Whites?  American patriots?  Members of our Armed Forces?  Sorry, Obama, but you failed on all counts of rejecting offensive stereotype except two:  Blacks and Muslims.

6.  “The vast majority of Muslims share our commitment to peace.”  Wrong.  Incontrovertible evidence that upwards of two-thirds of all state of the unionMuslims supported the 9/11 attacks against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the Charlie Hebdo attack in France, the beheading of reporters by the Islamic State, and the countless other attacks by Islam against every category of humanity on the planet.

7.  “We defend free speech.”  As recently as last week, Obama attempted to slam the lid on any dissent towards his policies or Islam in general.

8.  “We condemn the persecution of women.”  Really?  By supporting Islam, the most flagrant degrader of women on the planet?  Obama claims he gave up smoking, but he’s clearly still smoking something, and it’s not tobacco.

9.  “We condemn … not only because they are the right thing to do, but because they will make us safer.”  As leaders far wiser than Obama have made abundantly clear, “You can have freedom or you can have security.  Don’t ever count on having both.”  Being “safe” is a false flag.  It’s a lure to a trap of bondage wherein we are beholden to our government for “protecting” us.  Time to grow up, America.  Leave the crib.  Get a job.  Learn how to honorably support and defend the Constitution of the United States while protecting yourselves and your family against those who would deprive you of life, limb, or property, especially when it’s your own government who is attempting to do so.

10.  “It makes no sense to spend $3 million per prisoner to keep open a prison that the world condemns and terrorists use to recruit.”  The Islamic world condemns it.  Our broad list of allies do not.  Furthermore, they use use it to recruit all the want, but it amounts to absolutely nothing, until you start letting them go.  Obama let some of the prisoners go, and now he wants to let the rest go, knowing they’ve been recruited.  That’s what makes no sense.

11.  “Our intelligence agencies have worked hard with the recommendations of privacy acts to increase transparency and build more safeguards against potential abuse.”  Bullshit.  Respecting our Constitution and its Amendments while severely punishing those who violate “the supreme Law of the Land” is the right way, the only way to guard against potential abuse.  We should begin with Obama himself, who willfully turned blind eyes to the privacy-violating antics of the IRS and NSA in recent years.

Obama’s abuse of the State of the Union is heinous.  He lies, flagrantly, promises the Moon and stars, and delivers nothing while stumping for personal gain of himself and his close network of co-conspirators.

The State of the Union is mandated by our Constitution, specifically, Article II, Section 3: “He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.”  It is not to be abused as a platform to further the political agenda, one’s party, or one’s personal religious beliefs.  Yet that’s precisely how Obama has been abusing it for the last five years.

If the next President of the United States of America says in January of 2017, “I am not here to abuse this venue with political grandstanding, but to give you information on the State of the Union and measures for your consideration,” those words wound be met with five full minutes of a thunderous and standing ovation.
