Ex-DNC chair: ´The good

Washington Examiner [DC], by Joel Gehrke

Former Gov. Ed Rendell, D-Pa., found a silver lining in the shooting in Newtown, Conn., by observing that the tragedy has strengthened the gun control movement. “The good thing about Newtown is [that] it was so horrific that I think it galvanized Americans to a point where the intensity on our side is going to match the intensity on their side,” Rendell, one of Hillary Clinton’s most loyal allies, said on MSNBC today. Rendell has pushed for gun control apropos of shootings before, although he apologized at the time. “What the Congress ought to do,

A variation of "Never let a crisis go to waste".

It was obvious the Democrats and control junkies were giddy about it. Not so glad to be proven correct, but there are few surprises amongst the shameless.

Something smells regarding the information out of Newtown.
Can anyone say with CERTAINTY what weapons were used in the killings? I have seen mentions of two hand guns and an AR-15 in the car.
Other reports say he used the AR-15.
HOW much information is being withheld/buried to further the agenda?
Time for more answers out of Newtown.
Also, I have heard the mother of the shooter disparaged for being careless with her guns. I would like to know if she kept them in a gun safe..it is possible she had a safe with fingerprint recognition..the crazy guy could have cut off her finger..so would that be careless?
There is too much we do not know. Is it too much to ask for a report from LAW enforcement? After all, there is to be no trial..so put the information OUT.

Hey Low Info Connecticut Voter, do you get it?
Your dead children are just Democrats props!
The party of hypocrisy is dancing, singing and jumping for joy at your tragedy and misfortune. Because you can help them again.
Your pain, their gain. That´s what they call a win-win.

Think bloodshed is "good" because it will "galvanize" people?

These people are filth. They have no idea what sort of "galvanized" reaction they will reap if they are permitted to turn law abiding citizens into felons at the swipe of a pen.

They have no idea.

To our chagrin, Rendell is correct. We need to learn from this when dealing with matters like the fiscal cliff, debt ceiling, CRs, and sequestration. Shrunken paychecks, rising tax bills, and missing government checks also have a galvanizing effect.

This is what obama was trying to do in Mexico with the thousands of weapons he sold to the Mexican drug cartels. Over 300 men, women and children were murdered because of obama and the democrats.

16 school children were killed.

obama wants hundreds and hundreds of people murdered by those guns he provided.

See his votes on killing children born, his vote on not allowing you to defend yourself in your own home. His comments on killing elderly people as they have lived too long.

obama and the democrats want millions of people killed as they are being murdered by way of being on a death list like Britain has. They have 60,000 on a death list right now!!

obama is the face of a mass murdering cult called the democratic party.

There they go again, standing on the bodies of the Newtown Childern who were massacred, to make a political point.

To reduce gun violence, limit gun ownership to folks who vote Republican.

We wouldn´t be having this wave of copy-cat killing if it weren´t for the media. It´s time to reign in the media and start controlling what they are allowed to report.
Abolish the 1st amendment.
Do it for the kids.
If it saved just one life...

Why does anybody need to know that some wacko is killing people. I just breeds more killing.

I agree with whoever it was who said these politicians would be far more convincing if they disarmed their own entourages and the details who protect their own children. As is, zero credibility.

The premature presidential polls have started rolling out and are consistent: The race for the White House is as much a fantasy as “Game of Thrones” — filled with as many off-the-mark, off-their-rocker relatives and pretender-contenders to the throne as any “Song of Ice and Fire": REPUBLICANS -Jeb Bush, Son of George the First, brother of George the Second -The Good: Last-name recognition - The Bad: Last-name recognition: Brother Bush’s illegal war and the collapse of the economy.

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Morgado´s ´Hot Jesus´:

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force. "People are in that head-space and in that heart-space. It´s that time of the year where people are much more reflective and much more open to connecting with

   

 



 
NASA: Engineer vital to moon
landing success dies

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats seek to reshape midterm
electorate along lines of a
presidential year

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

For the two found shot to death, Chicago police were called to a home on the 8200 block of South Houston Avenue at 10:38 a.m., said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada. Officials are not releasing the name of the 18-year-old victim who lived at the home. Shot with him was Jordan Means, 16, of the 8100 block of

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
