How to Write About Israel

Some columns are perfect, and this one, by Daniel Greenfield, is one of those. Here is a small part, but please go read it all

It has two types of people; the Israelis who live in posh houses stocked with all the latest appliances and the Arabs who live in crumbling shacks that are always in danger of being bulldozed. The Israelis are fanatical, the Arabs are passionate. The Israelis are hate-filled, while the Arabs are embittered. The Israelis have everything while the Arabs have nothing.

Avoid mentioning all the mansions that you pass on the way to interviewing some Palestinian Authority or Hamas bigwig. When visiting a terrorist prisoner in an Israeli jail, be sure to call him a militant, somewhere in the fifth paragraph, but do not mention the sheer amount of food in the prison, especially if he is on a hunger strike. If you happen to notice that the prisoners live better than most Israelis, that is something you will not refer to. Instead describe them as passionate and embittered. Never ask them how many children they killed or how much they make a month. Ask them what they think the prospects for peace are. Nod knowingly when they say that it’s up to Israel.

Weigh every story one way. Depersonalize Israelis, personalize Muslims. One is a statistic, the other a precious snowflake. A Muslim terrorist attack is always in retaliation for something, but an Israeli attack is rarely a retaliation for anything. When Israeli planes bomb a terrorist hideout, suggest that this latest action only feeds the “Cycle of Violence” and quote some official who urges Israel to return to peace negotiations– whether or not there actually are any negotiations to return to.

Center everything around peace negotiations. If Israel has any domestic politics that don’t involve checkpoints and air strikes, do your best to avoid learning about them. Frame all Israeli politics by asking whether a politician is finally willing to make the compromises that you think are necessary for peace. Always sigh regretfully and find them wanting. Assume that all Israelis think the same way. Every vote is a referendum on the peace process. A vote for a conservative party means that Israelis hate peace.

Like I said go read it all

Missouri Governor: How dare you racists mess with our narrative!

It amazes me how the media, hand in hand with Liberals, have tried their damndest to anoint Michael Brown a saint. How many times have we heard the Brown was “unarmed” and a “victim”, that he was “executed” with his “hands up”. Well sorry, but we do not KNOW those things yet, but please Governor Nixon, don’t let that stop you

Democratic Missouri Governor Jay Nixon lambasted the Ferguson police department for releasing a video showing teenager Michael Brown robbing a convenience store minutes before being shot by a police, calling it “an attempt to, in essence, disparage the character of this victim.”

On Friday, Ferguson police provided a tape to the media showing Brown — whose killing touched off a firestorm of race riots and police crackdowns — robbing a convenience store just before his death last Saturday.

Pardon me Governor, but Michael Brown might not be a victim. There are now witnesses that say he was the aggressor, attacking the officer, and that he charged at the officer, which would, yes, make the use of deadly force just. Again, the race baiting must stop. Facts matter!

And the MSNBS Race-A-Palooza Telethon rolls on

Michael Eric Dyson, and guest eliminating any doubt that they are race hustlers and nothing more

MSNBC guest Dr. James Peterson claimed that the media shouldn’t be talking about the violent race riots going on in Missouri over the police shooting of an African-American teenager, calling it “a red herring.”

Peterson spoke with Dr. Michael Eric Dyson on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” Tuesday. The duo discussed the shooting of Michael Brown and the days of riots that have followed — although Peterson wasn’t too keen on discussing the violence and looting at all. 

Well of course not, that does not fit the narrative at all. We have to keep those pesky facts hushed up

“I think first and foremost, for us to be outraged at the response to the murder of Michael Brown doesn’t make a lot of sense to me,” Peterson claimed. “Because the outrage needs to be directed at the source.”

The source? How about the source of the riots, violence, and looting? How about the presumption of guilt for the police. Even BEFORE any facts come out, thee race pimps are screaming “MURDER” and “RAAAAACISM”. They are doing nothing but egging the looters on.

“They can handle the riot and stop the riot and control the riot,” he said dismissively. “But the real question is can we get our criminal justice system, can we get our police departments, to acknowledge the humanity of black and brown folks?”

Hmmm, if you ask me, I question why, if the system is soooooooo RAAAAAAAAAACIST, why are these looters not being billy clubbed, shot, or arrested? Oh, I forgot, that does not fit the narrative. And you can bet, that no matter what the actual facts are about this shooting, these race pimps will still pound the same narrative. Can you say propagandists?

And the obligatory MSNBS Race Pimpapalooza Telethon begins

Ever get the feeling that these cretins actually salivate for police to shoot a young Black man?

An MSNBC panel led by guest host Michael Eric Dyson agreed that the police and justice system in America “don’t see black and brown people as full human beings.”

Anger surged in the wake of this weekend’s tragic shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by a St. Louis police officer, with some African-Americans rioting in protest. Dyson brought on MSNBC contributor and university professor James Peterson and St. Louis alderman Lewis Reed to discuss the broader cultural themes surrounding the shooting.

“The police should not be there to chastise, and therefore brutalize, young children,” Dyson charged. “They’re there to be adults.

Young children? This guy was 18, and please remember that we have no idea if the police acted incorrectly. But, this is not a fact-finding mission, it is all about the narrative.

“At the core of this, you have an institution — criminal justice system and the police — who essential do not see black and brown people as full human beings,” he charged. “They do not afford them the rights of full human beings, and therefore all the interactions with them are colored, unfortunately, by that incapacity of them to see young people of color as human beings.”

“Yeah, that’s a great point,” Dyson agreed, claiming that black children “are not extended what would seem to be the fundamental basis that we use to treat other kids.”

“Treat them with respect and dignity,” he said. “Don’t assault them, don’t shoot them. If they’re doing something wrong, tap them on the back of the hands and say ‘Let me take you to your parents,’ as opposed to gunning them down in the streets.”

Again, nothing but coarse, divisive rhetoric meant to enrage, and paint a narrative that fits the Leftist agenda of these miscreants. Their goal is to poison the well before any hard facts emerge, so that those facts will never really matter.  I can scarcely think of more deplorable tactics.

Did you ever wonder why we never see images of Hamas fighters in action?

This might explain that mystery

A Spanish journalist told Israeli filmmaker Michael Grynszpan that the reason television news does not broadcast images of Hamas fighters in action is because of fear of immediate execution.

Grynszpan, who directed the film‘Forgotten Refugees‘, about the 800,000 to 1 million Jews expelled from their homes in the Arab world in the 1950s, posted his interview with the unnamed Spanish journalist on Facebook on Wednesday.

“I met today with a Spanish journalist who just came back from Gaza. We talked about the situation there. He was very friendly. I asked him how come we never see on television channels reporting from Gaza any Hamas people, no gunmen, no rocket launcher, no policemen. We only see civilians on these reports, mostly women and children.”

“He answered me frankly: ‘It’s very simple, we did see Hamas people there launching rockets, they were close to our hotel, but if ever we dared pointing our camera on them they would simply shoot at us and kill us.’”

“Wooh, impressive. Then I asked him ‘Would you mind saying that on camera? I can film you explaining this…’”

“For some reason I cannot really understand, he refused and almost ran away. I guess my camera is as dangerous as Hamas threats…”

“So just for you to know, the truth will never appear on the images you see on television.”

These terror groups are using our media to spread their lies. They understand all about spin

“I am glad you shot him”

Your quote of the day. It comes from the story the news media SHOULD BE covering

The ex-wife of the psychiatric patient who murdered a case worker before being shot three times by his psychiatrist has words of thanks for pistol-packing Dr. Lee Silverman:

‘I just want to meet the doctor and thank him,’ Kimberly said at her tidy red-brick house in a Philadelphia suburb.

‘I am not saying I wish he had killed him, I would never feel that way about anyone, but a world where my ex is not around will be a much safer world.

‘He has been in and out of trouble for 20 years and if he hasn’t been rehabbed by now he never will be. I hope he never gets out of prison — we will all be in trouble if he does.

‘He has never been stable. He is very unpredictable. He can be the nicest person in the world, talking with you and then suddenly he would get the look of evil in his eye and he would put a knife to your throat.’

Richard Plotts pulled a .32 revolver and executed case worker Theresa Hunt after arguing about the Mercy Healthcare System’s “no guns” policy, and then opened fire on his doctor, Lee Silverman. Dr. Silverman ducked for cover behind his own desk and pulled a .32 semi-automatic, firing it over the desk until it ran dry, hitting Plotts three times. Other hospital employees then tackled the wounded Plotts and disarmed him.

Police have credited Dr. Silverman with stopping a mass shooting. Plotts had 39 additional rounds of ammunition in his pockets, and authorities suspect that he intended to murder both Hunt and Silverman as part of a rampage through the hospital.

Imagine if the doctor had not acted, and the madman would have committed a mass shooting.You wanna bet the media would still be yapping about it, doing their usual “we need more gun laws” act? But, when a gun is used to STOP such an atrocity, well, the media is silent

Hamas censoring US media now?

Stacy McCain has a great post up regarding the spin machine and media guidelines Hamas has put together

Check the #Gaza or #Israel hashtags on Twitter and you’ll see that anti-Israel activists are flooding social media with their messages.

This is absolutely not an accident:

The Middle East Media Research (MEMRI) published Thursday a translation of a new Hamas internet campaign to provide guidelines for Gaza’s social media users. According to MEMRI, the Hamas Interior Ministry has instructed Gazans to use Facebook and Twitter to “play their part in strengthening the home front and properly convey information worldwide.” The guidelines in fact instruct social media users to mislead the public and propagate disinformation worldwide.
The interior ministry’s “Be Aware — Social Media Activist Awareness Campaign” centers around an instructional video and posters published on the ministry’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Gazans are taught, first and foremost, to refer to all terrorists as innocent civilians.
“Anyone killed or martyred is to be called a civilian from Gaza or Palestine, before we talk about his status in jihad or his military rank,” the guidelines state. “Don’t forget to always add ‘innocent civilian’ or ‘innocent citizen’ in your description of those killed in Israeli attacks on Gaza.” Mainstream media outlets would do well to remember this when quoting distorted reports from Gaza of civilian casualties.
The guidelines go on to tell Facebook and Twitter users how to spin Hamas terrorist activity aimed at harming Israeli civilians to appear legitimate.

And, our media, led by the NY Times, seems all too willing to perpetuate this propaganda

Something important is missing from the New York Times‘s coverage of the war in Gaza: photographs of terrorist attacks on Israel, and pictures of Hamas fighters, tunnels, weaponry, and use of human shields. 

It appears the Times is silently but happily complying with a Hamas demand that the only pictures from Gaza are of civilians and never of fighters. The most influential news organization in the world is thus manufacturing an utterly false portrait of the battle—precisely the portrait that Hamas finds most helpful: embattled, victimized Gaza civilians under attack by a cruel Israeli military. 

A review of the Times‘s photography in Gaza reveals a stark contrast in how the two sides are portrayed. Nearly every picture from Israel depicts tanks, soldiers, or attack helicopters. And every picture of Gaza depicts either bloodied civilians, destroyed buildings, overflowing hospitals, or other images of civilian anguish. It is as one-sided and misleading a depiction of the Gaza battle as one can imagine. 

Today’s Times photo essay contains seven images: three of Gaza civilians in distress; one of a smoke plume rising over Gaza; and three of the IDF, including tanks and attack helicopters. The message is simple and clear: the IDF is attacking Gaza and harming Palestinian civilians. There are no images of Israelis under rocket attack, no images of grieving Israeli families and damaged Israeli buildings, no images of Hamas fighters or rocket attacks on Israel, no images of the RPG’s and machine guns recovered from attempted Hamas tunnel infiltrations into Israel.

Frankly the job of the media should be taken seriously by that media. The job of the media in a war is to tell the story of that war. Our media is not doing that. Instead they are carrying the message that Hamas, terrorists, wishes them to carry

Leaked Intelligence Report On Border Crisis Shreds Narrative From Obama Regime And Leftist Media

Leaked Border Crisis Intel Shreds Narrative From Media And Obama Admin – Breitbart Texas

.

.
An elite, law-enforcement sensitive El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC) intel report from July 7, 2014 was leaked to Breitbart Texas and reveals that homicide rates in Central America suggest violence is likely not the primary cause of the surge of thousands of unaccompanied minors and incomplete family units illegally entering the United States.

The EPIC report indicates that the belief among the illegal immigrants that they would receive permisos and be allowed to stay was the driving factor in their choices to come to the United States and that the crisis will continue until ‘misperceptions’ about U.S. immigration benefits were no longer prevalent . The report also states that the migrants cited Univision and other other outlets as having shaped their views on U.S. immigration policy. Another implication of the report is that family members already in the U.S. are encouraging the minors to come and organizing the travel with smugglers. EPIC is a widely respected intelligence analysis group and was initially staffed by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

According to the official DEA website, EPIC now contains representatives from a host of law enforcement agencies. The DEA states:

Agencies currently represented at EPIC include the Drug Enforcement Administration; Department of Homeland Security; Customs & Border Protection; Immigration & Customs Enforcement; U.S. Coast Guard; Federal Bureau of Investigation; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; U.S. Marshals Service; Department of Transportation; Internal Revenue Service; U.S. Department of the Interior; National Geospatial – Intelligence Agency; U.S. Department of Defense/IC; Joint Task Force – North; Joint Interagency Task Force – South; Texas Department of Public Safety; Texas Air National Guard; National Guard Counter Narcotics Bureau; Department of State; Bureau of Indian Affairs; Union Pacific Railroad Police; Kansas City Southern Railroad Police; El Paso Police Department; and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.

The leaked EPIC report discusses the motivational factors of the illegal immigrants in their choice to migrate to the United States:

(U//LES) In late May, the U.S. Border Patrol interviewed unaccompanied children (UAC) and migrant families apprehended in the Rio Grande Valley. Of the 230 total migrants interviewed, 219 cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or permisos to UAC and adult female OTMs traveling with minors. Migrants indicated that knowledge of permisos was widespread across Central America due to word of mouth, local, and international media messaging – prompting many to depart for the United States within 30 days of becoming aware of these perceived benefits, according to the same reporting.

(U//LES) A majority of migrants interviewed also noted that they had encountered family units, consisting of a mother and child under the age of 18 during their journey to the United States and that the families had indicated they planned to surrender to U.S. authorities because they were informed that they would likely be released.

The EPIC report discusses the lack of correlation between violence rates in Central America and the current border crisis:

(U//LES) EPIC assesses homicide trends and migrant interviews suggest violence is likely not the principal factor driving the increase in UAC migration. While CBP data from early fiscal year 2011 indicates a steady increase in OTM and UAC migration, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) statistics – within this same timeframe – show a decline in per capita homicide rates in these three countries; El Salvador saw the sharpest decline, followed by Honduras and Guatemala, respectively.

.

.

.

.
The EPIC report discusses the media outlets that the illegal immigrants claimed shaped their perceptions about U.S. policies towards illegal immigrants of this nature:

…Migrants cited Univision, Primer Impacto, Al Rojo Vivo and several Honduran television news outlets for helping shape their perception of U.S. immigration policy.

(U) Although EPIC lacks reliable reporting of Central American newspapers broadcasting the perceived benefits of U.S. immigration policies, several U.S. media outlets since June 2014 have identified Central American newspapers that have enticed minors to travel to the United States. For example, Honduran and El Salvadoran press have reportedly advertised the DACA policy, accommodations for detained UAC, and the promise of reunification with family members in the United States.

The EPIC report discusses the illegal immigrants’ family members already living in the U.S. as encouraging the minors to illegally enter the nation and setting up the travel arrangements with smugglers:

(U//LES) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) also notes that a large number of migrants interviewed claimed family members in the United States encouraged their travel because the U.S. government would cease issuing permisos after June 2014. (U//LES) U.S. Border Patrol officials report that the majority of migrants interviewed in late May indicated that they made arrangements with smugglers in their respective countries through the assistance of family members and friends in the United States.

The EPIC report states that near-term slowdown in the crisis is unlikely and that traditional migration factors will likely continue to fuel the wave of illegal immigration. It states that the crisis will continue until the migrants’ “misperceptions” about U.S. immigration benefits are changed:

(U//FOUO) EPIC assesses that UAC flow to the border will remain elevated until migrants’ misperceptions about US immigration benefits are changed. We further judge that this process could take the remainder of 2014 given the time needed for bi-lateral coordination efforts – such as information and enforcement campaigns in Mexico and Central America – to take hold. Nonetheless, traditional underlying immigration factors, such as family reunification and poor socioeconomic conditions, will continue to drive alien flow – including minors – from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

Six-year legal ordeal finally over for man who killed two thugs in self-defense

Via Bearing Arms

A very biased account of the events carried in the Miami Herald and republished by the Florida Courier nonetheless gets the general account of incident correct :

Mobley shot and killed Jason Jesus Gonzalez and Rolando Carrazana in February 2008 outside the Chili’s restaurant at 5705 NW 173rd Drive.

Gonzalez and Carranza had gotten into an argument with Mobley and a friend inside the restaurant. No fights occurred and the two men left the eatery, though not before banging on the outside windows and pointing at Mobley’s group.

Some 20 minutes later, Mobley and his friend, Jose Correa, were smoking cigarettes outside the restaurant. Mobley had retrieved his Glock pistol from the glove compartment of his parked car.

Suddenly, Gonzalez appeared out of nowhere, delivering a “vicious punch” to the face of Correa, fracturing his eye socket, according to court documents. Gonzalez danced backward, his arms raised as if to taunt the men. Seconds later, Carranza appeared rushing toward the men.

“I was scared, and then I seen this other guy coming up from the back and then he reached up under his shirt so I was scared,” Mobley testified at an immunity hearing in January 2012. “I thought, you know, they were going to shoot or kill us.”

Conveniently, the “journalist,” David Ovalle, forgets to mention that Carranza had charged Mobley while reaching his hand under his shirt, and two knives were found near where he fell .

As Bob Owens rightfully points out, the bias in the story is deep. Apparently the writer wanted to attack Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, which was not really at play in this case. Take a peek at the headline to the story 

Two unarmed men dead; shooter walks

Unarmed if you discount the two knives one of these thugs had. I love how the Left uses “unarmed” when an innocent citizen uses a gun to kill a criminal violent attacker. They use it because, in their twisted view “unarmed” means you have no gun, and are, apparently therefore harmless and a saint. The REAL bad guys? Well the Left sees a citizen that uses a gun in self-defense as bad these days or so it seems. Talk about moral retardation

There goes the media again, telling us what the story is before they even know what it is

Stacy McCain labels it “preemptive journalism”, and gives us a great example of the media reporting what the story might be, rather than simply sticking with what they actually know

Well, we can all agree on this, I’m pretty sure. But apparently there is someone in Florida who feels otherwise: FORT MYERS — Fort Myers police are trying to find the killer of a transgender woman whose body was found burned behind a garbage bin Thursday. Police on Friday identified the victim as Eddie James Owen, 31, but family members said Owen identified as a woman and went by the name Yazmin or Yaz’min Shancez. (Warning: Pronoun confusion ahead.) Fort Myers Police Lt. Jay Rodriguezsaid they have not determined a cause of death, and are not investigating the homicide as a hate crime. “We have no indication at this time to say this was specifically done because it was a male living as a female or anything like that,” Rodriguez said. “If you really think about it, a hate crime is killing someone for a specific reason, being black, Hispanic, gay. We’re investigating as we would any other homicide.” (Keep this in mind: Police don’t even know the cause of death yet. They haven’t identified a suspect or a motive.)

Go read the rest of McCain’s post, he does a great job of illustrating how the media, far too often, seeks to create a story, or an angle to a story that suits some narrative, or garners more attention.

A Basic Primer On The Scott Walker Case For Ignorant Reporters (Gabriel Malor)

A Basic Primer On The Scott Walker Case For Ignorant Reporters – Gabriel Malor

.

.
I’m going to tell you a true story, and then tell you how the news media is covering it.

This is a true story: in 2012, Democratic district attorneys in Wisconsin launched a secret probe known as a John Doe investigation with the goal of proving that conservative groups illegally coordinated activities during Gov. Scott Walker’s recall election. They issued more than 100 subpoenas, demanded the private information of conservatives and conservative groups, and actually conducted secret raids. And under state law, individuals who were targeted or witness to the investigation were forbidden from making knowledge of it public.

Fortunately, judges saw right through this partisan abuse of power. Early this year, a state judge, ruling in a secret proceeding, quashed the subpoenas and all but ended the investigation. According to the judge, “the subpoenas do not show probable cause that the moving parties committed any violations of the campaign finance laws.” This started the unraveling of the John Doe investigation that had many conservatives fearing they would be targeted for subpoenas and raids next.

In February, a conservative activist and group filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the partisan district attorneys who had pursued the John Doe probe. In short order, a federal district court judge held that the plaintiffs “are likely to succeed on their claim that the defendants‘ investigation violates their rights under the First Amendment, such that the investigation was commenced and conducted – without a reasonable expectation of obtaining a valid conviction.” In other words, at this early stage of the civil rights litigation, it looks to the judge as if the Democratic district attorneys abused their power and chilled conservatives’ free speech rights. Accordingly, the federal judge ordered that the John Doe probe must cease, all the seized property be returned, and all copies of materials be destroyed.

After a short trip to a federal appeals court, the federal judge reissued his order that the John Doe probe cease. Most recently, that appeals court has ordered some of the previously secret probe documents disclosed to the public, including an unsuccessful defense that the John Doe investigators made to one of their secret subpoenas. In their attempt to get a subpoena, which was rejected by a judge for lacking probable cause, the partisan investigators claimed that Walker was involved in the so-called conservative conspiracy.

And that is where the litigation stands as of today. Having launched a secret probe that has now been shut down by both the state and federal courts, the Democratic district attorneys find themselves the subject of an ongoing civil rights lawsuit for infringing the First Amendment rights of conservatives. But that is not how the media have reported the case.

Upon the unsealing of some of the probe documents by the federal appeals court, the media worked itself into a frenzy claiming that Walker was part of a criminal conspiracy. The media claim was based entirely on the subpoena document that was denied by the state judge as failing utterly to demonstrate probable cause to believe a crime occurred. In short: the judge, looking at all the evidence, found no reason to believe that a crime had occurred. That has not stopped the media from falsely implying otherwise.

This is largely accomplished by playing with verb tense. For example, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel kicked off this infuriating libel with a piece that claimed, “John Doe prosecutors allege Scott Walker at center of ‘criminal scheme.’” The more accurate word, of course, would have been “alleged,” past-tense with the addition of the words “in denied subpoena request” or perhaps “in failed partisan investigation” or even “in politically-motivated secret investigation rejected by the state and federal courts.”

The New York Times, trumpeting the story on today’s front page, also uses the present tense to give the wrong impression. The piece begins “Prosecutors in Wisconsin assert that Gov. Scott Walker was part of an elaborate effort to illegally coordinate fund-raising and spending.” Again, the true story is that this took place last year and was ended by the courts. You’d have to read all the way down to the tenth paragraph to learn that the subpoenas weren’t granted because there was no probable cause to believe that a crime had occurred. Oddly, the Times piece muses on the electoral consequences for Walker in the third paragraph.

The media obsession with Walker is no coincidence. Liberals are still stinging from their failure to recall him in 2012 after he successfully curtailed union abuses. And they sense that he could be a formidable contender for the White House in 2016. That the John Doe probe simultaneously harms him, suggests widespread wrongdoing by conservatives, and raises the campaign finance bugaboo makes this story the almost-perfect storm. The inconvenient fact that the investigation was cooked up for partisan purposes, has now ceased, and has impelled a federal civil rights lawsuit will go unmentioned in the papers.

A story you will not see covered by the main stream media

We all know that the Left is trying to pimp the tragic mass killing in Santa Barbara to get more  gun control laws. There a 22-year-old nut case Elliot Rodger, shot three people to death. Of course he also used a knife to slaughter three others and tried to use his BMW to kill more innocent people, but the Left still blames only the guns. No mater that none of California’s gun control laws stopped Rodger, or even slowed him down. Limits on magazine capacity, a waiting period,  bans on many types of semi-autos did nothing to stop Rodger. Yet, still the Left attacks the guns. The father of one of the victims has said no one “needs” three pistols, but, in Fresno, California, another 22-year-old used a gun in a far different manner, but do not expect national coverage of that

….he very likely kept this situation from becoming a another home invasion massacre.

Deputies say four siblings — ages 22, 18, 11 and 8 — were in the home just before 6 a.m. when the 22-year-old man heard the sound of someone breaking through a door, then saw a least two people in his home. The man got a handgun out of a safe and confronted the suspects. Deputies say the man and at least one intruder exchanged fire.

The man was hit by multiple rounds, as were two intruders. One suspect died at the scene as the second suspect tried unsuccessfully to pull the first to a getaway vehicle.

The second suspect was driven in a van by two other suspects to Keweah Delta Medical Center. A security camera at the hospital captured the arrival. The sheriff’s office did not provide the suspects’ gender.

The 22-year-old stopped the attackers, killing one and wounding another. More importantly, he stopped the attackers from successfully killing him and his siblings, which certainly seemed to be on the mind of the trigger-happy home invaders.

This story, of course, does not fit the narrative. This story is about the “other” side of the gun debate. The side against the folly of more useless gun laws. The side with the numbers on its side. Imagine if our media, YES, you too Fox, actually devoted time to stories like this? Guns are used more often to stop crimes, and defend the innocent than they are used to commit crimes. Imagine if the media were to cover THIS 22 year-old hero who very likely saved four lives, and took out two monsters, as much as they cover the crazy 22-year-old that committed his evil acts in Santa Barbara? In other words what if the media actually reported self-defense uses of firearms like they do mass shootings? 

An apology is in order, I carelessly posted Elliot Rodger’s name incorrectly and that mistake has been corrected

BBC: You Go “Girl”

Once the media starts banning words…………

The British Broadcasting Corporation censored a completely innocuous word in a recent documentary, just in case people would find it offensive.

The word: “girl.”

In a documentary ahead of the Commonwealth Games, which will take place in Glasgow, Scotland in July, host Mark Beaumont interviewed 19 year-old judo champion Cynthia Rahming and her family.

Rahming and Beaumont grappled, with the fighter taking the 31 year-old host to the mat.

“I am not sure I can live that down — being beaten by a 19-year-old girl,” he said in the documentary.

The episode originally aired in April, but in a re-run, the BBC removed the line containing the apparently offensive description of a young female.

The GIRL, did you read that BBC? I said GIRL, was not offended by being called GIRL at all. But, of course, the thing about the Left is you don’t have to know what offends you, they will tell you when to be offended.

Your Marxist Moron of the Day is………..

Bill Press, who might be the biggest ass hat on the Left, and that is saying something

Is it me or did Press actually say ObamaCare is doing “so well”? Good grief. He cannot be serious. And check out the “Conspiracy Card” he plays. He is a partisan hack, of course you have to be a left-wing hack to be a guest on MSNBS, especially on Sharpton’s show.

I would like to ask Press one question about Benghazi, or the VA scandal. If there is a “conspiracy” then who is complicit? The Republicans? They are not in the White House. They are not running the State Department. Democrats are! The Republicans did not lie about Benghazi multiple times. They did not repeatedly blame a video when they KNEW that Benghazi was a terror attack. Democrats did, and the evidence is plain to see, there is no doubt about this. Team Obama LIED! And they imprisoned a man for what, a year? All under the guise of blaming a video. Hey, if Press wants to call conspiracy, he needs to look at Team Obama.
