EXCLUSIVE: Gunman´s ´survivalist´ mother was OBSESSED with guns and stockpiled supplies as she planned for economic collapse before son shot her in the face while she lay in bed Daily Mail [UK], by Daniel Bates & Hayley Peterson
The mother of Newtown school massacre gunman Adam Lanza was a survivalist who was stockpiling food because she thought the world economy was on the verge of collapse. Nancy Lanza began hoarding food and water because she feared that the onging financial crisis was going to bring about the end of civilized society. She reportedly became ´obsessed´ with guns and taught Adam how to shoot, but on Friday in a grim twist he blasted her to death while she laid in her own bed. Law enforcement sources told the Hartford Courant that
Comments: Fox reported this morning that the murderer destroyed all of his computers. If this guy was so unstable I´m not sure exposing him to all these guns was the most responsible thing to do.
Sooo, if she was suffering from end-of-the-world-itis because of our financial meltdown, doesn´t that make Zippy and the ´Rats who have caused and accelerated that meltdown "responsible" for the massacre?
Obama has failed to employ the strategies that create a vibrant and growing economy. Thus the shooter´s mother became concerned the economy was going to collapse and stocked up on ammo and purchased guns for protection from the hoards of "takers" she expected would roam the neighborhoods once the government entitlements ceased. Her troubled son took the guns and killed all the people.
Conclusion: it´s all Obama´s fault for his failed programs that started it all.
As obama continues to pursue his destructive agenda, the sense of impending doom this woman felt will become more justified and more common. The woman´s personal convictions are hardly relevant. The fact that she let her son have access to her weapons seems to me to be the crux of the matter.
How many of these episodes could have been prevented if the perpetrator´s mother wasn´t blinded by maternal devotion?
The mothers fears were not irrational but her solution was imprudent. #7 & 8 have it right. When the president fails in his basic duty to keep the citizens safe and is constantly stirring up class warfare in pursuit of his political objectives it will make the targeted people in the population nervous and that is when chaos breaks out. The president should stop all his talk about various groups in the population. There is only one distinction that counts - American citizens and aliens. That is one distinction he refuses to make!
I am not convinced she left the gun case open or let the kid have access to the guns. Knowing him, he could have easily held a knife to her throat and forced her to open the gun case. Before she could call the cops, he shot her dead.
I think he would rather see that the Palastinians are safe, poster 12, than to keep Americans safe. Sharia law is coming. It may be a while but is is coming this way. A good share of muslim families that already live here think our courts should let it be integrated into our court system.
This is just another trip to fantasy land with a media desperate to be relevant. Until the police reports are out, it´s all conjecture all the time, by the media.
So, what was her political affiliation? They keep trying to imply that Mrs. Lanza was a kookie conservative redneck- gun enthusiast, prepper, homeschooler. However, her location, home and lifestyle, leave that open to question.
Was she a liberal? Let´s be honest, if she were conservative, we´d know that by now, but it would explain, if she were a Zero supporter, why they are so desperate to paint her and a kook.
here we go. the script is becoming more clear. she was ´´obsessed´´ and a ´´survivalist´´. she was the risk. now I got it.
all we´re hearing is second hand info, and that may be all we ever hear since both mother and son are now dead. no one is saying whether or not the weapons were secure in a gun safe. and if that is true, perhaps the son had the combination. she ´´told a friend´´ that she was afraid she was losing the boy. since he hadn´t demonstrated any aggressive behavior a reasonable person would assume she meant that he was becoming even more introverted and was pulling away from her psychologically. if she was indeed so concerned with safety and survival, I´d bet that she was not careless with firearms. I have to believe (until facts are made much more clear) that she didn´t have a clue her son was this dangerous...
We should all know by now that the maintream media is worthless reporting a story like this one as it is their "DUTY" to exploit any story they report on to further a Lefty agenda and to protect Obama. I agree with others Obama has only himself to blame for scaring the majority of Americans with his Marxist agenda and class warfare. Obama is to blame for this woman´s worried mental state. The woman´s son was a mentally ill sicko that probably nobody could help.
The poor woman who was murdered by her own son is not even buried in the ground yet and her character is already being assasinated. For shame!. Her only mistake was not properly securing her firearms from her son who clearly had some mental health issues. This whole tragedy and the three preceeding tragedies were failures of our mental health system. We dont need any additional laws. More than enough of them were broken already.
If she were really disposed as stated in this article, you would think that she would have sold her high value property in ultra liberal Connecticut and moved into the mountains in someplace like Idaho, where a lot of her survival minded kindred spirits are holding out.
I think that before passing judgment on her it is prudent to wait until the emotional smoke clears, and see what her ex-husband and surviving son, along with other family members and acquaintances have to say.
I think it´s time this news organization became not credible for posting. No evidence any if this is true. Feels too much like, "LOOK! A Tea Partyier!" With absolutely nothing but rumormilling and hype.
Either the mother, the medical professionals or both, failed to adequately identify and/or deal with the killer´s mental illness.
It is only coincidence that she was a single mother who was concerned about the safety and financial future of herself and her child in this quickly deteriorating 0bama economy. There are a lot of us who share those concerns.
This is simply another opportunity for the left to add to their narrative that those who refuse to rely on the government to provide for them and protect them are somehow less than mentally balanced and a threat to the national security.
Those people who are aware of the insane debt Obama is racking up, recognize the unsustainable nature of the Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Obamacare, food stamps and welfare programs and extrapolate to the inevitable bankruptcy of this country necessarily followed by a societal meltdown when all those state dependent people are left stranded with no means of support and who don´t prepare to defend, feed and shelter themselves are oblivious to potential disaster.
So which is worse, being obsessed with survival or being oblivious to a possible disaster?
The comparison is so crude as to be laughable, but given the mainstream media´s immediate linkage of the two, and President Barack Obama´s insistence on talking about himself in his eulogy for Nelson Mandela, it must be said: Obama is no Mandela. For one thing, their societies are different: the U.S. bears no resemblance to post-apartheid South Africa. For another, Mandela chose to govern differently from Obama in many key respects. 1. Mandela was a uniter, Obama is a divider. Mandela was not above playing racial politics at times, but generally did all he could to bring people together, in
The Obama administration is about to approve a rule that will ensure the death of golden and bald eagles for the next 30 more years. Hundreds of thousands of birds die each year flying into the deadly turbine blades atop the soaring towers that compose wind farms. The rule that Obama is signing will give wind farms thirty year permits for the “non purposeful take of eagles-that is where the take is associated with but not the purpose of, the activity.’’ The take of eagles is also a euphemism for the slaughter of them. The wind farms fulfill Obama’s ambitious
Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) executive director Mark Krikorian said on Thursday that House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is by far the most open borders-minded member of the U.S. Congress—even more so than Democrats like Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), who is aggressively and publicly calling for President Barack Obama to halt deportations of illegal aliens. "Paul Ryan is probably the most ideologically committed open-borders person in Congress. I would say even more than the Democrats,” Krikorian said in an interview with American Family Radio’s Sandy Rios, One News Now reports. One News Now’s Chad Groening added that
In his book “The Audacity of Hope,” President Barack Obama praised the Constitution and the federalism it enshrines, including the “three coequal” branches of government and checks on power that “prevent tyranny by either the few or the many." “The outlines of Madison’s constitutional architecture are so familiar that even schoolchildren can recite them: not only rule of law and representative government, not just a bill of rights, but also the separation of the national government into three coequal branches, a bicameral Congress, and a concept of federalism that preserved authority in state governments, all of it designed to diffuse
White House press secretary Jay Carney said that they’re leaving the investigation of an American teacher shot in Benghazi up to the Libyans. The Libya Herald reported that chemistry teacher Ronnie Smith, 33, was running on Dubai Street in Benghazi’s Digadosta district when he was shot multiple times. According to witnesses, Smith was approached by a black SUV that “drove up to him and retreated several times before shots were fired from the vehicle.” Smith had lived in Benghazi for 13 months with his wife and their 2-year old while teaching at Benghazi International School. His wife had flown back
President Obama directed federal agencies and the military to nearly triple renewable energy consumption by the end of the decade, setting a target of getting 20 percent of electricity from renewable sources. The move, which comes through executive order, is the latest in a series of administrative efforts the White House has employed to address climate change through curbing greenhouse gas emissions. And focusing on the federal government -- the nation´s largest energy user -- could have a significant impact. "Meeting this renewable energy goal will reduce pollution in our communities, promote American energy independence, and support homegrown energy produced by American
The President´s problems are not restricted to millennials -- a majority of whom support throwing him out of office. A new Gallup poll finds that his job approval among Hispanics has fallen 23% in the last year. What´s more, white women (especially blue collar white women) have turned sharply against ObamaCare. From the National Journal, reporting on polling provided to it from the Kaiser Family Foundation: According to Kaiser, 40 percent of college-educated white women hold a “very unfavorable” view of the law—10 points higher than a month ago. An additional 10 percent view the law “somewhat unfavorably.” A month
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
