This is too perfect!! Just minutes after Debbsters WhatsHerFace Schultz was fired as the Chair of the Democratic National Committee for emails showing she RIGGED the primary election against Bernie, Hillary has HIRED her to her staff!!!
…..Yes they can as Diogenes tells us
Tuesday’s nights keynote speaker at the DNC convention in Philadelphia will be the the nominee’s husband, the lecher Bill Clinton. And keeping with the low class theme of the night will also featured controversial speakers from ‘Mother’s of the Movement‘.The Mothers of the Movement speakers include such illustrious ghetto celebrities as Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin; Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontré Hamilton; Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis; Lezley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown; Cleopatra Pendleton-Cowley, mother of Hadiya Pendleton; Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland. And some in Philly are rightfully not very happy with the decision to give them front row exposure…..
WT- “Philadelphia’s police union is blasting Hillary Clinton for inviting relatives of victims of police shootings to speak at the Democratic National Convention, but failing to include relatives of slain police officers. John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, said the union was “shocked and saddened” by the planned choice of speakers at the convention, which opens Monday in Philadelphia.
“The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget that the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton are excluding the widows and other family members of police officers killed in the line of duty who were victims of explicit and not implied racism,” Mr. McNesby said in a statement.
He said it’s “sad that to win an election Mrs. Clinton must pander to the interests of people who do not know all the facts, while the men and women they seek to destroy are outside protecting the political institutions of this country.
“Mrs. Clinton, you should be ashamed of yourself, if that is possible.”
But the bastards that did this were not captured H/T Bob Owens
Just weeks after a domestic terrorist supporter of Black Lives Matter ambushed and killed Dallas police officers in the single deadliest loss of life for a law enforcement agency since 9/11, an unknown suspect (or suspects) lured officers into the North Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas with a shots fired call, and thenambushed several officers who responded.
Several Dallas police officers are okay after someone fired shots at them early Sunday morning.
It happened around 3:00 a.m.
The officers were responding to a call about shots fired at North Hampton Road and Davis Street, in the North Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, when someone opened fire on officers, a Dallas police Sgt. said
I know several Dallas cops, and I take attacks on them personally. These thugs need to be eliminated as threats. People in Oak Cliff who know anything about who did this need to take action, call the Dallas Police and help ID these terrorists.
A woman was killed and at least two injured in a machete attack near the German city of Stuttgart.
A man has been arrested in connection with the attack in the city of Reutlingen, just south of Stuttgart.
German police have confirmed that the stabber is a 21-year-old Syrian refugee who was known to the police, but they believe he was a “lone operator” and don’t expect there to be any related or secondary attacks around the city. They say that the man “had a dispute” with the woman, killing her and then stabbing another woman and a man.
German authorities have yet to release his name, and state that his motives still remain unclear, though they did say that as far as the preliminary investigation is concerned, the stabbing did not bear the hallmarks of a terror attack.
Time will tell as to the motivation I suppose. It is of interest though, that a civilian ran the stopped the attacks by running the vermin down
German newspaper Bild reports that the machete wielding man attacked outside of a kebab shop, with bystanders fleeing in panic after seeing the knife.
An eyewitness told the paper that the attacker was run over by a passing BMW, preventing him from continuing his stabbing rampage, after which he “lay prone on the ground and didn’t move.”
I hope the driver gets a medal
Crazed Ali David Sonboly, 18, gunned down nine helpless victims during a rampage outside a McDonalds restaurant and then busy shopping centre in Munich.
And now Sigmar Gabriel, head of the Social Democrats, has demanded that more must be done to limit access to deadly weapons, saying gun control is an “important issue”.
He added: “We must continue to do all we can to limit and strictly control access to deadly weapons.”
Of course, this ignores Germany’s already stringent gun laws
Germany has some of the world’s strictest gunlaws. But that did not stop Friday’s Munich attacker — an 18-year old dual Iranian-German national — from carrying out his shooting spree.
The assailant most likely obtained his pistol illegally and did not have a license, German police officials said Saturday. That development could have worrisome implications for a country that has already exhausted most legal means to prevent such shooting sprees.
Yes, that is right, bad people, be they crazy, terrorists, or just evil, will go around laws, break laws, and ignore laws. Here are some of Germany’s laws regarding guns
Guiding gun control legislation in Germany includes the Basic Law, War Weapons Control Act, the Weapons Act, the Council Directive of 18 June 1991 on Control of the Acquisition and Possession of Weapons, the European Union Firearms Regulation of 2012, the Common Position on the Control of Arms Brokering of 2003, and the Convention of 1 July 1969 on Reciprocal Recognition of Proofmarks on Small Arms
Guns in Germany are regulated by the Ministry of the Interior and the Federal States, and the European Commission
In Germany, the right to private gun ownership is not guaranteed by law
In Germany, only licensed gun owners may lawfully acquire, possess or transfer a firearm or ammunition
Applicants for a gun owner’s licence in Germany are required to establish a genuine reason to possess a firearm, for example hunting, target shooting, collection and security
An applicant for a firearm licence in Germany must pass a background check which considers criminal, mental health and addiction records
In Germany, an understanding of firearm safety and the law, tested in a theoretical and/or practical training course is required for a firearm licence
Licensed firearm owners in Germany are permitted to possess one firearm per licence
In Germany, the law requires that a record of the acquisition, possession and transfer of each privately held firearm be retained in an official register
So, what new law would be effective in stopping such evil acts as we saw this week in Germany? Or as we have now seen multiple times in France, and Denmark, which both have tight gun control laws?
Sadly the lessons of gun control, which fails repeatedly, are always ignored by the Utopian Left. The lesson that wise men have long since learned, that disarming good people only encourages evil people will never be accepted by the Utopian Left.
The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.
“Treason doth never prosper, what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it Treason.” – John Harrington
“…Give the devil his due” – Shakespeare- “Henry The Fourth”
“GRAPESHOT, n. An argument which the future is preparing in answer to the demands of American Socialism.” – Ambrose Bierce, “The Devil’s Dictionary”
This week, we had a tie in the Council Category between Joshuapundit’s–AMessage For France – And For Us which was my reaction to what happened in Nice and what is happening around the world and Bookworm Room’s – The Devil And Gun Control .
I got off some pretty good riffs as well as some decent perspective in my piece, but I have to give pride of place to Bookworm’s wickedly imaginative idea of a dialogue between Satan and one of his minions!
Here’s a slice:
Gun control proponents have a problem. Irrefutable data shows that, since 1992, as American gun ownership has gone up, crime has gone down. When pressed about the dramatic decrease in crime, the best that the Left can do is to point to anything but the increase in privately held weapons:
“Possible reasons for the decline include the country’s high incarceration rate, an aging population and an increased use of security cameras and cell phone videos capturing incidents.”
If gun grabbers were forced to grapple with the fact that the increase in guns tracking precisely with the decrease in crime, they’d also have to acknowledge that all the aging Americans, the imprisoned Americans, and the video cameras are irrelevant. Why? Because if more guns really meant more crime, as they insist, the 300 million guns in America today would more than offset age, imprisonment, and video.
The fact is — as even the CDC was forced to admit — that guns are used defensively as often as 1.2 million times a year. This short John Stossel piece gives a very down-and-dirty explanation for the fact that, while guns are a problem when they’re in criminal hands, they’re not a problem in the hands of law-abiding citizens (and, in America, most citizens are law-abiding or at least non-violent)[take the link for the video]:
So what do you do if you desperately want gun control, but the data refuses to cooperate? Well, I can imagine Lucifer and his chief minion having a meeting that goes something like this:
The scene: A well-appointed office in Hell. Satan, in a snazzy red suit is seated behind a heavy oak desk. Standing in front of the desk, facing him, is Jezebeth, a pimply young demon, who’s one of his primary Earth operatives. The year: 2009.
LUCIFER: Jezebeth, you know and I know that too much freedom is good for human souls and therefore bad for our business. Without an all-controlling government, there’s so much less scope for the corruption that fills our Hell halls. After all, every time a petty official is given the power to control a person’s activities, we’re going to start seeing all sorts of wonderful bribery and other graft.
JEZEBETH: Oh, I agree, Satan the Supreme, I agree.
LUCIFER: Don’t interrupt again. We’ll take the groveling as given. Now where was I? Oh, yes. It’s very hard to empower a corrupt, despotic government when the people are armed. Those bureaucrats may crave power, but never enough to put themselves on the wrong side of an armed citizenry. You understand, then, what we have to do: We have to take guns away from Americans.
JEZEBETH: Your Supreme Evilness, you know that we’ve been working in America for years to get guns out of people’s hands. We’ve arranged with our earthly operatives to ensure that every single time more than two white people are shot with a gun in the same event, that our friends in the Democrat party blame guns and demand gun control. But it’s just not working. People keep getting more and more guns — and let me tell you, 9/11 didn’t help us at all. Neither did Hurricane Katrina. Those people we couldn’t sway directly or through our media imps actually realized that, when there’s a crisis, that non-damned NRA was right all along — when seconds count, the police are minutes away.
LUCIFER: Stop babbling, Jezebeth, and focus here. I know that your team has been pushing gun control for years, but you’re failing. We need to brainstorm here. The problem, as I see it, is that the more that ordinary Americans get guns, the fewer guns crimes there are. It’s devilishly hard to convince people to give up their guns when they’re feeling safer. We have got to make them feel less safe.
JEZEBETH: Well, your Evil Lordship, I have been thinking about this and I’ve got an idea. How about if we increase the violent crime rate so that people feel less safe?
LUCIFER: How in the Hell are you planning to that, Jezebeth? I just said that the problem is less crime.

See you next week!
Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.
And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.
It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.
Guns can serve as an equalizer for intended victims who are at sever disadvantages. Those who are handicapped, attacked by criminals who are stronger, or attacked by multiple attackers can turn the tables.
When will criminals learn? If you break into someone’s home, you shouldn’t expect to make it out alive.
Especially when your ‘victim’ is armed.
Police in Mobile, AL were called to an apartment complex on Texas Street shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday morning to investigate a shooting.
Mobile Police Department said three armed robbers, Deidra White, 24, Donald Denson, 19 and Eddie Hardy, 19, broke into an apartment in an apparent armed robbery attempt. The tenant heard the home intruders and grabbed his firearm for self defense. After a confrontation and a shootout in the apartment, the intruders fled on foot.
But not without a little parting gift for their efforts.
Hardy, who suffered a gunshot wound courtesy of the armed (and obviously better trained) tenant, was driven to a local hospital by his partners in crime where police say he died from his injuries.
Again, this story ends very differently if the Cult of Gun Control had their way
Hyundai has developed a solution — the E4U:
Hyundai’s egg-shaped vehicle sets itself apart by sitting atop a horizontally-spinning semisphere that is used for propulsion instead of wheels. The driver stands on a small platform and directs the vehicle by tilting it so that different sides of the semisphere contact the ground. Tech-On says this is similar to the way a helicopter works, with two rear wheels providing stability and friction to act like a helicopter’s tail rotor.
Other details are scant, but another “interesting” feature is the that the top of the vehicle can be removed and worn by the driver as an eye-catching helmet. This is dominated by a large clear visor that seems more fitting for higher speeds than the walking pace the concept is currently capable of.
Hyundai is based in South Korea, but this concept is so absurd that it would be amazing if the US government has had no role in funding it.
So, wanna see one of these MoonBatMobiles?
This one in Columbus Ohio, Bob Owens has the details
Shots were fired in Columbus, Ohio last night in another apparent attempt to ambush police officers.
A large section of Columbus, Ohio was under lockdown last night after police were shot at by a man with a rifle. The police were responding to a call about shots fired near Columbus circle. When they arrived at scene, they came under fire. Police cordoned off a large section of town, including a long stretch of Cleveland Avenue.
Based upon reports for various media sources, the would-be cop-killer appears to have randomly fired shots into local businesses and vehicles to lure police into the area, and then engaged officers as they arrived on the scene. Fortunately for the responding officers, the suspect was unable to make any hits.
The suspect is still on the loose.
Hope they catch this terrorist soon, before he has another opportunity to commit an atrocity
