An emotional President Barack Obama led the nation in mourning the victims of an elementary school massacre on Friday, speaking from the White House following the shooting in Newtown, Conn. The president not only pledged to assist investigations into the shooting, but also became openly emotional upon reflecting upon the many school children killed or injured in today´s mass shooting. "The majority of those who died today were children -- beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10-years-old," he said, pausing to wipe away a tear.
The prevention was given thousands of years ago in one simple commandment: "Thou shalt not kill." Perhaps this little line could be brought back into our schools--maybe just before the line about how to put on a condom.
Yeah, the sociopathic whore in the White House breaks all land speed records racing to a podium if he can insert himself in history, whether he is falsely accusing a white policeman of racism for arresting a foul-mouthe, uncooperative black Harvard professor, ridiculously comparing Travyon Martin (a mixed martial arts devotee and urban thug) to what a son of his would look like, commemorating Rosa Parks by having a photo of *himself* in her bus, and now shedding a tear on camera before anything is really sorted out in Connecticut.
I loathe the Marxist Mulatto, the Leftist Puppet, the Alinsky Slave, the Affirmative Action Poster Child for White Guilt, with the heat of a gazillion exploding supernovas.
Wolf and some White House reporterette were just gushing over Obama - how he was so emotional, wiping away tears and they had never seen a prez get so emotional. I guess they have forgotten about George Bush who appeared to really be crying and really care. Obama´s little drama was totally fake.There were no tears, no catch in the voice - just a flat line speech which he read and a wipe of his eyes on cue. What a disgusting display!
What about the 750,000 kids aborted each year in the U.S. who have "their whole lives ahead of them"? The president has no tears to shed for them. Maybe if abortionists used guns instead of scalpels...?
Obama is coming after your 2nd Amendment Rights. He and his crew will use this sorrowful situation as a crowbar against our 2nd Amendment. Consider this - If someone, teacher, administrator or custodian in the Newtown. CT school had had their own firearm maybe the situation might be different this afternoon. Evil people will find a way to commit murder and mayhem. The poor innocents will have no clue as they perish.
June 14, 2008: That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.” -- Barack Obama in the Wall Street Journal by Staff.
As we´ve said time and again, it´s not the guns that kill people, it´s the people that kill people. You can make all the laws you want, but stupid people will continue to do stupid things. What are they gonna do - lock everyone up?!
There has been no mention of the millions of babies the dimfecal leftist have tortured and murdered. The law abiding abortionist (murderers) no doubt do not use firearms since that would violate break local commie anti-gun and down with the Second Amendment ordinance laws.
Check your yellow pages for the nearest shiria law iman and mosque.
#27, I think your points are right on. Those who fight and push to make sure our public school children are not allowed to honor their Christian faith in any way are also the first to say "Why did God allow this to happen?" They want to blame The Lord God for the evil perpetrated by people controlled by satan.
What #2 said. IMO, basic human decency just doesn´t apply to obama. BTW, "news-sources", please spare me the phony tears from the false prophet obama. If I NEVER hear one more "talking head" remind us that obama "as a father"... it will be too soon..
It´s not gun control, it´s control of the mentally ill that we need. Every horrific incident like this has one common denominator. The weapons always vary. But, the shooters are always young men with a history of unstable and antisocial behavior.
There was a mass shooting of little children in Dunblane, Scotland in 1996. Sixteen children murdered. In 1997, The Firearms Act was passed after a year of media-driven public petitions and guns were effectively banned in the U.K.
This is what Obama is after. Fast and Furious and the movie theater shooting were not enough...it had to be little children. We are in danger of losing what remains (and it ain´t much these days) of our Bill of Rights.
I have been in tears all day over the deaths of these children. Though I know they are in the arms of Jesus, the parents are left in unimaginable grief, and there is little any of us can do for them right now except pray.
But bear in mind, while we pray...the evil that is in this administration is plotting. They will use this monstrous tragedy...they will use it every way they can and we will all suffer the consequences. Be vigilant.
Very true, #34. Think of the weirdo rambling on YouTube and the "Joker" guy with the orange dye in his hair. Both have been diagnosed as psychotic/schizophrenic. That´s a common thread in any mass killing.
Society needs to rethink caring for and managing the behavior of the dangerously mentally ill. There is no place in society for them, and if those who don´t kill others die because of their vulnerability. Institutionalization is a humane solution for these people.
He "cares" only to the extent he can exploit this to a political advantage; no more, no less.
Remember, he didn´t care enough about Ambassador Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, or Glen Doherty, to send them aid while they were still alive and were under siege.
Do you think he expends any emotional energy for persons in Connecticut that he doesn´t know, whether children or not? Obama has emotions only for his narcissistic self, no one else. In this regard he is mentally ill.
How very sad for the families of these victims. The random events where these things happen seems tragic, but cannot be avoided completely, no matter what is done. But that won´t stop the do-gooders from trying, mostly out of emotion, but many out of a desire for control, like Obama and his Leftist associates. Better to subjugate an entire nation in an effort to stop random shootings; 1984´s condition of super government control will be hastened by the reaction to this. China does this to an extent (no guns allowed), yet there remains mass killings with other instruments. And their population is essentially living within a mental and geographic prison, which begs the question of whether that´s preferable to death. Live free or die, a once proud statement, and one still on a license plate back east, is becoming hollow to the core with half the population of this nation. They have no sense of history or perspective. This is a very sad story, time for grief, not for instant solutions dripping with emotion.
We don´t need to be reminded by President Obama that these dear children and their families belong to the larger American family. We have lived though horrible tragedies before and we know how to respond to them. We have pulled through previous shocking disasters with calm, determination, charity, and action and we did this without President Obama´s instructions. We mourn these precious children and we grieve with their suffering families without reservation and without regard to political persuasion. President Obama should stand back and let the American people quietly respond to this latest situation appropriately, just as they have always done.
Obama amazes me. His eyes looked dry and don´t most people cry from their inner eye? After watching him for the past week or two waltzing around with a big smile on his face and partying and golfing as our country headed for disaster, at least he mustered an effort to appear to be sad during this awful time.
Alligator tears from the wart hog. Where is his empathy and sympathy for the millions of babies not allowed to be born or those who survived after having scissors poked in the back of their little heads and were put aside to die in agony. Hypocrite.
Thank you #9, beautifully said, but no matter what, please don´t let that supernova heat consume you. For example, today I am trying very hard to find some comfort in the fact that certain states are fighting against everything this anti-American pox is inflicting on our nation. As long as our best and bravest are struggling overseas, I feel we can´t completely give up.
As for those in CT, I will pray for the departed and for those left behind, that they receive the support they need to carry on in this life.
This is one big crisis, full of short term emotion, that the Obama crew is not going to allow to pass without them attempting to push through Congress, or administratively ordering a lot of new gun control measures.
Gun control backfired politically on the Democrats the last time they tried it and that could easily happen again. What they should be doing is enhancing the background check process to keep mentally defective people from purchasing firearms. That might not have helped in the Connecticut mass shooting, because it appears that his mother may have been what amounts to a firearms straw purchaser for the perpetrator by purchasing and registering guns in her name for him and it looks like that irresponsible action cost her her life.
I thought I couldn´t feel any sicker after hearing about the horror of today.
Then the Narcissist-in-Chief gets up and does the Crocodile Rock while trying to make it all about HIM.
As so many of you have rightly said: Where are his tears for the babies and mothers murdered by legal abortion??? So far from weeping for those deaths, he wants us to be forced to PAY the hit men to murder them.
Woe to you, Pharisee, whitewashed tomb full of dead men´s bones!
So did the over 300 Mexicans killed by the weapons you sold to the drug cartels. So did the American rancher and American border guard. So did the 4 men killed in Benghazi. So did the over 1,000 soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan who have been killed because you restrict them from defending themselves.
Lemme see- so far, I found two articles about this ´show of emotion´. The first didn´t contain a video and the second( NBC) for some reason wouldn´t let go to full screen to get a closer look at those ´tears´. This man is cold and without a soul. He has had over five years to prove this and nothing he does will make me believe differently. Were it not for revenge, he would have no emotion. Prove me wrong , please.
#55, I think Boehner is truly tenderhearted and that his tears are real - and inconvenient for him since he´s ridiculed so much about it. Not at all sure about the prez´s though, and it´s indeed unbelievable how the media has been carrying on about them - and never a word about how wooden and unfeeling he always seems. He´s just their little prezzie & don´t you dare say a word against him.
The House on Thursday approved a two-year budget deal that turns off $63 billion in sequester spending cuts, handing a major victory to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio.). Large majorities in both parties backed the bill in a 332-94 vote. Only 62 Republicans defected despite harsh criticism of the deal by conservative groups that said it did too little to cut spending. Heritage Action, the Club for Growth and other groups said they would negatively score votes in favor of the legislation, but those threats failed to create a stampede against the bill. Instead, members rallied around Boehner, who had strongly pushed
TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Country Music Hall of Fame member and country music legend Ray Price, 87, plans to leave East Texas Medical Center in Tyler on Thursday to go to his home in Mount Pleasant where he will be provided with hospice care. Price, who is best known for his country classics, including Release Me, Crazy Arms and For the Good Times, has been battling pancreatic cancer since 2011. Since then, the disease has spread to his liver, intestines and lungs, even with aggressive treatment. Price and his wife, Janie, who have been married for 45 years, made the
HOUSTON - "Affluenza," the term used by a psychologist to argue that a North Texas teenager from a wealthy family should not be sent to prison for killing four pedestrians while driving drunk, is not a recognized diagnosis and should not be used to justify bad behavior, psychologists said Thursday. The term was popularized in the late 1990s by Jessie O´Neill, the granddaughter of a past president of General Motors, when she wrote the book "The Golden Ghetto: The Psychology of Affluence." It has since been used to describe a condition in which children — generally from richer families —
WASHINGTON — The House moved toward passage of a bipartisan budget accord on Thursday evening that is intended as a truce in the spending battles that have paralyzed Congress for nearly three years, as leaders in both parties sought to marginalize hard-line conservatives opposed to any compromise. With bipartisan support in hand, Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio declared open warfare on the outside conservative groups that have tried to scuttle the budget deal. For the second day in a row, he accused groups like Club for Growth, Heritage Action and Americans for Prosperity of reflexively opposing a reasonable plan
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration moved Thursday to help tens of thousands of sick Americans who have struggled to enroll in health coverage for next year because of problems with the rollout of new insurance marketplaces created by the president’s health law. The Department of Health and Human Services announced that patients who have been enrolled in special insurance plans for consumers denied coverage elsewhere would be able to stay on those plans until the end of January. Nearly 86,000 people are currently in such plans. These state-based plans – known as Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plans – were created by
Wall Street´s third down day in a row pushed stocks to their lowest levels in a month as investors worried that the end may be nearing for the Federal Reserve´s support for the economy. The Fed´s stimulus efforts have been a key factor in the bull market that has pushed the Standard & Poor´s 500 index 25 higher percent this year. Investors know it will end sooner or later. But the timing, and the fallout, are uncertain. Until this month, stocks had risen for eight weeks straight. But stocks posted their biggest declines in five weeks on Wednesday, and dropped
Approximately 800 school children waving American flags greeted the Wreaths Across America convoy at their school on Wednesday in Middletown, N.J., for a wreath laying ceremony and tribute honoring World War II veterans who fought in the Battle of the Bulge. The WAA caravan included over 10 trailer trucks filled with wreaths. The group is laying wreaths to honor and remember the country’s veterans during its weeklong journey, which began in Maine on Dec. 7. Its final stop will be at Arlington National Cemetery on Dec. 14, where at least 100,000 wreaths will be laid on the graves of veterans.
(Video) Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) outburst Thursday at outside conservative groups is going viral on the Internet. Boehner voiced incredulity Thursday that the same groups that pushed Republicans to shut down the government later said they knew the strategy wouldn´t succeed in defunding ObamaCare. “Are you kidding me?!” Boehner exclaimed at the GOP´s press conference at the Capitol. It’s the second day in a row Boehner has criticized the groups. People began tweeting that Boehner’s outburst would make a good Gif.
"The Price Is Right" host Bob Barker is endorsing lobbyist David Jolly, one of two Republicans vying for deceased Rep. Bill Young´s (R-Fla.) seat. Barker makes the endorsement in a new campaign ad that will run during a special "The Price Is Right" episode on Thursday. The ad could help Jolly win over perhaps the key demographic in the GOP primary race: seniors. According to National Journal´s Almanac of American Politics, more than a fifth of Young´s district is over 64 — the target demographic for "The Price Is Right." The ad is set to run Thursday as Barker makes a
Paul Ryan wants everyone in D.C. to remember the Rolling Stones. “There’s this older British guy who says ‘you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you just might find, you get what you need,” he said on Thursday’s Morning Joe with a smile. Ryan is fighting for the budget he negotiated with Washington’s Sen. Patty Murray (D), but not everyone is happy. Major tea party-allied groups came out in advance of the deal to condemn it. Tea party darlings Sens. Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, all expressed disappointment in the deal, as well
On Tuesday, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., revealed their budget plan to the world. I would say it was immediately met with complaints, but those complaints started before it was introduced. Is it perfect? Absolutely not. But are there other plans? No. Outside groups called for opposing it before they’d read it, Members of Congress said they’d vote against it before they knew what was in it. I’d like to take these people with me to buy lottery tickets since they seem to have some form of clairvoyance. I get the anger of conservatives, I’m right
Washington- American Airlines kicked off its freshly minted status as the world´s largest carrier Thursday with an aggressive order for $3.9 billion worth of regional jets from Brazil´s Embraer and Canada´s Bombardier. Three days after completing its merger with US Airways, the new American said it had inked deals to buy 30 CJR900 NextGen aircraft from Bombardier, and 60 Embraer E175s. Bombardier said its deal was worth $1.42 billion, while Embraer put a $2.5 billion value on its order. American also has options to buy an additional 40 CJR900s and 90 E175s. American said the 76-seat regional jets ordered will
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried
