Of course, MSNBS and the rest will not make this story into a campaign for stricter car sales laws. Frankly, blaming the car would be idiotic. But had this woman shot at police, it would be all about blaming the gun. I wish the media could offer some consistency.
A mentally disturbed woman used her car to attack police in DC, and to try and crash the White House gates apparently today. The Other McCain has more on this woman
Consider this just a place-holder post, really. Some crazy lady went on a vehicular rampage in Washington, D.C., today. She reportedly tried to ram the gates at the White House, then led cops on a chase to Capitol Hill, where she rammed a police car before finally being shot to death. She reportedly had a child in the car with her, and the child was unharmed.
Who was this woman? What was her motive?
this point, I have no clue and don’t want to speculate.
The woman was 34, The Other McCain has a photo of her, she was pretty. It is sad, this woman was obviously disturbed. What a shame she could not get whatever help she needed. It is disturbing, to look at a picture of a smiling face and imagine the illness behind those eyes. Here is more on Miriam Carey
Well, this didn’t take very long:
A dental hygienist from Connecticut was the female driver who tried to ram her car into a White House barricade and was shot dead near the US Capitol after a high-speed chase through Washington streets Thursday afternoon, law enforcement sources told The Post.
Sources said Miriam Carey, who formerly lived in Brooklyn, was licensed to practice in New York and Connecticut and had a permit to work as a hygienist in Connecticut prisons. . . .
ABC News said the 34-year-old woman had a history of mental health issues. A task force of FBI and Secret Service agents was executing a search warrant at her Connecticut home, CNN said.
She is not what you expect when you think of someone ramming police cars. You expect some seedy looking guy. Hard to say what it is but something about this story really gets to me. You cannot blame the police, not at all. They did their jobs.
Muslims who have begun promoting a 9/11 march in Washington that originally was to protest “anti-Islamic bigotry in the U.S.” and then turned into a “March Against Fear” may have some competition.
Loud competition. Very loud. And lots of it.
In what was a virtual impossibility before the Internet, a Facebook page has been created in which many individuals are coordinating what they have dubbed “2 Million Bikers to DC”.
At the Mr. Conservative blog, the author said: “The best way to counter bad speech is to oppose it with good speech. Sometimes ‘speech’ can be expressed simply by the number of people who are willing to show up to support a principle. That’s the view that hundreds of bikers (so far) across American have as they prepare to join a ’2 Million Biker Ride to DC’ to counter the planned Sept. 11 ‘Million Muslim March.’”
On the Facebook page, the community purpose is described as: “To honor those who were killed on 911 and our armed forces who fought those who precipitated this attack!”
More than 16,000 “likes” had been generated in just a short time.
“We have now created the final phase for states to coordinate! All riders need to look at the state list, choose your state and request to be added! Several states still need coordinators,” is included in the instructions.
Four dozen pages to coordinate delegations from individuals states already exist.
A Ronald Curaba said: “Who ever comments I would like to do this… should shut up and show up! Im a retired FDN Lt. I should be at my old firehouse where I was on that ill fated day… but I will be in DC riding! God willing!”
Added Bryan Short: “How appropriate. A million muslims surrounded by 2 million hogs!”
Organizers of the page added: “Folks, just wanted to say thank you for your support. This event has been a lot of work. But for our country it is worth it. As with any event such as this we are being attacked from every angle. But we will not allow those distractions to deter us from our goal nor the goal of the originator of this event Mr. Bill Williamson.”
“God Bless Ride Safe,” added Tammy Bowman.
“Ride on brothers,” said Bob Halley.
“Don’t forget ya’ll don’t need a bike to participate. Support vehicles will be needed. I suppose most of the U.S. will be there in spirit. Those of us who are lucky to still have employment still need to work their knickers off to survive these days. Perhaps red/white/blue boys can adorn people’s homes in support?” suggested Trish Zysk.
Options for those who cannot make the trek to D.C.?
“Organize a ride to your own state Capitol! Get with like-mined folks and get started planning! Someone take a lead in your state and get the event in motion.”
Also, get with your ‘Impeach Obama Overpass’ organization.
“Whatever you decide please do something to support America on 911!”
See a video on the event:
While the American Muslim Political Action Committee originally billed its offering as the “Million Muslim March,” it now has been changed to the “Million American March Against Fear.”
The promoters initially said their march was to protest “anti-Islamic bigotry in the years that ensued the al-Qaida terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people on American soil.”
Now the group says its goal is to “ask all individuals and organizations working for peace to attend this collective action to tell our government leaders we want transparency and policies of peace. In the past 12 years since 9/11 the United States government as failed to protect and promote constitutional liberties and human life, here and abroad. We feel that accountability in government has been ignored and the time has arrived to collectively speak truth to power.”
An early statement from the group said, “On 9.11.01 our country was forever changed by the horrific events in New York. The entire country was victimized by the acts done on that day. Muslim and non Muslim alike were traumatized but we as Muslims continue 12 years later to be victimized by being made the villains. To this day every media outlet and anti Islamic organization has committed slanderous and libel statements against us as Muslims and our religion of Islam.”
“It is amazing how fast they changed the original language on their website claiming victimhood, bigotry, and unfair treatment since Sept. 11th 2001,” Gabriel said. “Once they were confronted and debated by people like me who pointed out to them that in the last four years alone we have arrested on American soil 226 home grown terrorists. One-hundred eighty six of them were Muslims. Not Jews. Not Hindus, not Buddhist. But Muslims.”
Gabriel says the facts are that Muslim immigrants to the U. S. are responsible for a disproportionally large number of domestic terrorism cases.
“Of all immigrants who have ever immigrated to America since its birth, America never encountered such hatred and terrorism coming out of one faith based group in our country that accounts for less than 2 percent of the American population and is now responsible for over 80 percent of attacks against America,” she said.
“In 11 years since 911, the Islamic American community has not organized a one million man march to condemn Islamic terrorism against America and call Hamas, al-Qaida, Hezbollah, al-Shabaab, and other groups by their names – terrorists,” Gabriel said.
“Instead they are rallying to condemn America for what they call unfair policy here and abroad. It is about time the Muslim American community comes out and condemns every imam’s preaching in mosques throughout America who advocates overthrowing our democracy and inciting hatred against infidels and America,” Gabriel said.
“They should be coming out by the millions supporting America and its policy in eradicating Islamic terrorism, supremacy and violence,” Gabriel said.
The newest grievance mongering group of “oppressed Americans” are Muslims it would seem. Via 1389
Odd how every “Million fill-in-the-blank March” is put on by radicals who are demanding they have their feelings soothed. Sorry, I cannot trust their intentions because putting such an event together on that particular day shows an intent to rub salt in wounds. And, sorry, but I do not buy this lie that Muslims are harassed and discriminated against in America. Victimhood is a business these days, and this group is looking either to cash in, or maybe worse. Given that the fellow in the video pretends he does not know what Sharia Law is, forgive me if I do not trust him If this fellow has a legitimate aim to heal, let him start by healing his religion.
“It was crazy. Beyond our control,” says the manager of the King Convenience store in the 1500 block of U Street in Southeast D.C.
He says a flash mob of teens stole candy, soda and other items from his store Saturday night.
“Bunch of kids, more than 20 or 30, grabbed everything,” he says, asking not to be identified. “They grabbed everything and then ran away from the store.”
An employee ran outside to try and stop some of the teens involved in the flash mob. He was confronted by one of them armed with a stick and is now recovering at home from his injuries.
The suspect is described as a black male, 5’8″ tall, 180 pounds, with a medium complexion. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt with a Nike emblem, short-sleeve jean jacket or vest, a white sweatband on his head, and knee-length jean shorts and tennis shoes.
“The previous owner, they locked the store and everything was inside,” the manager says. “We believe in community and opened everything up and try to do business, but sometimes it’s hard.”
The new owners, who took over a year and half ago, say they would like to see police patrol the block every two hours or so, and crack down on loitering nearby.

[VIDEO] Georgetown student says all Republicans should be ‘put to death’
A Georgetown student advocated for the extermination of all Republicans on Tuesday when asked if he supported the GOP’s plan to reduce student loan interest rates.
“I don’t think I support anything the Republicans do,” the unidentified student told Campus Reform. “I think all of them should probably be put to death.”
“That’s a little harsh,” countered another student.
“No, it’s not,” replied the other.
I guess he thinks reducing student loan debt is a bad idea. Oh wait, bad choice of words, this buffoon never thinks, it is to inconvenient

Hope to see you there!
Once again the mainstream media proves itself to be nothing more than an extension of the DNC.
It’s like it never happened.
Here are pictures from the March for Marriage today, via National Organization for Marriage website today:
There was also a rally at the end of the march.
Obviously, the march did not fit the media’s narrative on the subject.
Nice Deb has the scoop. It would be great to get as many folks as possible. And remember tomorrow, at every state capitol
On January 19, thousands of 2nd Americans from every state rallied at their state capitols to show their support for the 2nd Amendment and send a message to Congress. The MSM pretty much ignored the huge numbers, so now it’s time for round two:
2nd Amendment events that will be taking place in every U.S. state capitol city on Friday, February 8, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. This is a critical time to show our support for the 2nd Amendment and opposition to currently proposed legislation.
Of course I have to work, but, if you can, get out there and show your support for our liberty. And again, May 25th, at The mall in DC
Another 2nd Amendment rally has been organized for May 25 in Washington DC:
Calling all Gun Owners and Patriots you are cordially invited to attend the first 2nd Amendment rally at The National Mall in Washington D.C. on Saturday May 25th 2013 at Noon Eastern Time (Tentatively Pending Sponsors). We are hoping to attract up to 10 Million Gun Owners/Patriots to the National Mall for a rally to show our support for the 2nd Amendment. The 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution is the part of theUnited States Bill of Rights that protects and insures the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
Once we have secured the venue we will confirm the date and time. This is a grass roots endeavor so any national celebrities that would like to help please contact us at the e-mail address below.
The United States Supreme Court has ruled that the 2nd Amendment protects an individual right to possess and carry firearms.
Gee, I wonder how much doctoring of video MSNBS will engage in after that rally.
Good grief. The Left is good at redefining words, and phrases. When it comes to guns, and gun control, the Left throws the term semi-automatic around constantly. They also invented the term “assault weapon”. They do this to create, in the minds of the public, images. Images of machine guns, spewing hundreds or rounds in seconds. these images frighten people. Then the Left comes along and says “Look what the NRA supports! They support everyone owning these semi-automatic weapons”. And meaningful debate on the topic is therefore largely destroyed, and replaced with hyperbole and emotional arguments, which benefits the Left. This video illustrates how ignorant the media is on the terms the Left has redefined
Fully automatic weapons (machine guns) have been illegal for 78 years now. Semi-automatic guns accurately describes most of the guns in this nation. You pull the trigger, the gun fires a round, and chambers the next round, you pull the trigger, the weapon fires again, and so on. It is sad that most Americans get suckered in by the misleading rhetoric of the Left, and even sadder that newsmen like Schieffer do not bother to educate themselves on the topic. This is yet another clear example of why the Left pushes for government-run schools, and mandatory Kindergarten, and preaches that everyone has a “right” to a college education. they want to indoctrinate as many Americans as possible. And they want to teach kids NOT to think, but to emote. they want to teach kids NOT to be pro-active, but to be reactive. The less intelligent the populace, the easier it is for the Left to win elections, and ideological debates.
Over at The Daily Clash, there is a great list of excellent questions that ought to be posed those calling for more gun laws in the wake of the Newtown school massacre. Be sure to go read them all, but here are my favorites
Did you know that the shooter had an altercation with school staff when he tried to enter the school the day before the shooting?
Doesn’t Connecticut already have some of the strictest gun laws?
Wasn’t this school a gun-free-zone?
I would add this one. What law could be pass that the gunman would have obeyed?
Also, I had a discussion at work today with two men. One of them was denouncing the “rednecks” who love guns. He seemed to believe that limiting magazine capacity, and limiting the number of bullets one could purchase would be good ideas. As a bartender, I stay out of political conversations, unless someone asks me my opinion. This man did ask for my thoughts. I said the best way to handle the prevention of mass shootings in schools is with armed, trained security. His response made me angry. Without missing a beat he said that we could not afford that. I responded that with all the money spent on education, and the worsening results, we ought to address safety first. And between the States, counties, Washington DC, and parents, the money could be found. What I did not say was that if the government mandates your child attend school, then their first, and most serious obligation is to protect your child.
After the two men paid, one of them, the one that was silent, came back and said I had raised a great point, one that made sense. He noted the heroic principal that went at the gunman. “Too bad she was not armed.” he said. “Yes,” I answered “maybe she would not have stopped him, but, she would have had a much better chance.” I find it odd that Liberals wish to continue NOT allowing people like that principal even the choice of carrying a gun.
Final… Oh wait, my bad, they actually only voted to ban the word “lunatic” from federal law. For a minute there I bet you thought these worthless shit bags were actually going to do their freaking jobs!
As the nation staggers through hard times toward total ruin as a result of the toll taken on the economy by Big Government, it’s nice to see our rulers finally addressing the serious issues that threaten us:
The word “lunatic” will be stricken from federal law under legislation that passed the House on Wednesday and is headed to President Obama for his signature.
The Congressional action is the latest effort to remove language from federal law that has become outdated or is considered demeaning.
Words are especially “demeaning” when they hit too close to home.
Only one Rep voted against the measure.
The lone “no” vote was cast by Representative Louie Gohmert, Republican of Texas, who said in a statement that “not only should we not eliminate the word ‘lunatic’ from federal law when the most pressing issue of the day is saving our country from bankruptcy, we should use the word to describe the people who want to continue with business as usual in Washington.”
So, in 225 years, America has gone from Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Washington, Mason, etc. to THIS! One man, ONE in the entire House gets it? And the Republicans have a big majority in the House! Dear God we are so screwed!
The Congressional action is the latest effort to remove language from federal law that has become outdated or is considered demeaning. Two years ago Congress took out references to “mental retardation.”
Priorities people! Where are our priorities?
RS McCain sums up the left in this post Acting like the assholes they are
Tonight my co-blogger Smitty is going to see the new Andrew Marcus documentary Hating Breitbart for the first time. I’ve seen it twice — at the world premiere at the Republican convention in Tampa and at the D.C. preview showing Oct. 8.
Last night at the first commercial showing of the film in D.C., a fanatical Breitbart-hater named Ryan Clayton was reportedly ejected from the theater for disruptive behavior.
The bozo actually appears in the film. He’s a familiar type on the Left, the posturing “activist” who plays hero by Standing Up to Right-Wing Evil: “Admire my courageous truth-telling!”
Such people don’t realize what tedious stereotypes they are. If Ryan Clayton had a line of trademark fragrances, it would be called “Sanctimony.”
Breitbart told the truth about the Left, and they hate noting like they hate the truth
It seems that everyone, from our loval government, to Washington DC, to Liberal activists, to homeowners associations are sticking their noses into every bit of our business
Melissa Lecker is walking outside her three-bedroom home in downtown Wausau, Wis., and talking about her dogs.
“These dogs are our family,” she says as she looks down at two 13-year-old golden retrievers, Abbie and Jesse.
Right behind her are her 1-year-old Yorkie, Archie, and Chester, her 3-year-old shih tzu.
“They are just like our children,” she says.
In fact, she says emphatically her four dogs are more important to her than her money or even her home.
“This house doesn’t mean as much to us as they do.”
Ironic because it’s the house she and her husband are set to lose because of their love for their pups.
James and Melissa moved to Wausau in early January, buying a new home and what they thought was the beginning of a great life in Wausau.
What they didn’t know is Wausau has an ordinance limiting the number of pets.
In Wausau, for instance, you can’t have more than three cats, three gerbils or three rabbits. And, unfortunately for the Leckers, you can’t have more than two dogs.
Laws like this over reach the common sense of those who author such bills. Yes, I am sure that there were plenty of “good intentions” behind this law. But, as history shows us over and again, along with those good intentions come unintended consequences. H/T Feral Irishman
No,not to me, like Alesiter I still call this holiday George Washington’s Birthday!
The Heritage Foundation would like to have a word with you…
It’s Washington’s Birthday, Not Presidents Day
February 22 is the birthday of George Washington — the man who, more than any other, made possible our republican form of government.
The third Monday in February has come to be known, wrongly, as President’s Day. America’s political leaders should take this occasion to remember Washington’s deeds, recollect his advice, and again call the holiday celebrating him by its legal name: Washington’s Birthday.
Defacing a military monument? Really? Richard G. Williams shares the troubling news that the forces of extremism are out and about
There have been several incidents of vandalism of Confederate monuments here in Virginia in recent months.
There are just some things that get my temper going, and this is one of them. I am well past fed up with these fools that trash Confederate soldiers as racists, are saying they fought over slavery. That is, frankly, a load of doctored history. Sadly many well-educated folks buy into it, yes, even a good many Conservatives.
Those defacing public monuments are, in my opinion, intolerant extremists. I can’t help but be reminded of what the Taliban did to the ancient Buddhist sculptures in Afghanistan. To be consistent, those who favor this kind of base, uncivilized conduct would have no problem with others doing the same thing to a statue of Lincoln or FDR, or placing their own “interpretative plaques” in order to make a political statement. If the monuments of Lee and other Confederate heroes should be “moved to a museum” (how utterly stupid), then the exact same argument could be made for ALL monuments to ALL our Founding Fathers. Hmmm . . . now just where are we going to put the Washington monument? What about any future monuments to President Obama? Will it be acceptable for his political opponents to paint “Marxist” on some future monument?
So, what is an appropriate punishment for the bigots that commit these acts? Fines? Jail? How about we take a page from Singapore? Cane them! Yes, I am serious. In my experience, miscreants that do such things are spoiled brats that are, as the post title suggests are in desperate need of an ass-whipping!
