Shooting Pains

Many on the Left were devastated Wednesday when it turned out that the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California did not (as originally reported) happen at a Planned Parenthood clinic, nor was it perpetrated by "three white men."

Rather, the horrendous slaughter was committed by "devout Muslim" Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, who are believed to have been in communication with individuals under investigation for international terrorism. Additionally, the couple's home has been described by authorities as a virtual "IED factory" for producing bombs.

Even Barack Obama is having trouble calling this "workplace violence," as much as he desperately wants to. In the face of overwhelming evidence, he grudgingly admits that the shooters may have had "mixed" motives.

We can only speculate at this point, but it seems clear that this couple - and an unknown number of others - had spent considerable time preparing to commit a massacre. Had it not been this "workplace" party, it would likely have been a mall, a church, a school, or some other soft target.

Our thoughts go out to the victims and their families, and we hope (but don't expect) that this terrible incident can finally inspire serious policy discussions about radical Islamic terror within our borders.

Relax, America. Obama has a plan to stop moderate Muslim workplace violence.

Barackalypse Now

Yes, he really said this.
On Monday, Barack Obama gave a "powerful rebuke" to ISIS terrorists by telling them that it's pretty much too late for them to do us in because western civilization is already doomed. And, unsurprisingly, it's largely the fault of stinking, greedy, energy-guzzling Americans like you.

Specifically, the Prophet Obama spake thusly: "I’ve come here personally, as the leader of the world’s largest economy and the second-largest emitter, to say that the United States of America not only recognizes our role in creating this problem, we embrace our responsibility to do something about it."

Frankly, we find the notion of Obama embracing anything remotely like responsibility to be harder to swallow than the oxymoronic scientific "evidence" that the Earth is somehow warming without a measurable rise in temperature in almost 20 years, and thickening ice caps which Al Gore (who has also been thickening) had assured us would already be gone by now.

The U.N. Climate Summit in Paris, where the president spoke, is being attended by 150 world leaders who apparently don't give a flying carbon credit that, for the past century or so, it's actually been possible to communicate electronically without the need to fly yourself, your entourage, your security team, your makeup artists, and your speechwriters via giant, exhaust-spewing, fossil fuel-burning jets.

As a case in point, for every hour Air Force One spends in the air, 11 children will die of lung disease because of the increased pollution. A statistic which is made only slightly less terrifying owing to the fact that we just made it up. Which doesn't mean that it isn't true, it just means that it's unsubstantiated by anything like empirical evidence - much like the president's assertion that anthropogenic global warming not only exists but comes with a "Made in America" label.

Of course, the real point of this apocryphal apocalypse summit isn't the climate, it's to establish the mechanics of redistribution of wealth and power (both political and physical) from the United States to other countries which are, in Mr. Obama's view, less morally loathsome than we are.

In other words, every dictatorship, caliphate, monarchy, religious oligarchy, and backwards totalitarian piss-pot hellhole on our non-warming Earth.

Shoots and Leaders

Let's get a few things out of the way first: the mass shooting at the Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic is an awful tragedy which should never have happened. Whatever the gunman's twisted motives (which remain unclear, although he mentioned "no more baby parts" in a rambling, disjointed conversation with police) he is nothing more, and nothing less, than a psycho killer who deserves capital punishment as quickly as the system will allow.

Clearly, the world would have been better off if this lunatic didn't have a gun. But Hope n' Change is struck by the hypocrisy of the president declaring "enough is enough" over this shooting of 12 people (3 killed, 9 wounded) while showing less interest in the holiday weekend's body count in Chicago (15 killed, 67 wounded) than he shows in sports scores.

And the reason is simple: Mr. Obama's goal remains to take guns out of the hands of the law abiding while doing nothing to curb the endemic inner city gun violence which takes so many black lives (which apparently don't #Matter to him much.) So his selective outrage is clearly political rather than moral.

Make no mistake, Hope n' Change is all for keeping guns out of the hands of homicidal lunatics. But how? What are the telltale signs which clearly signal that someone has gone around the bend?

According to voter records, which Democrats assure us are always 100% accurate, the bearded, formerly-married shooter was listed as a female. Was this a governmental error (unthinkable!) or a case of Caitlyn Jenner-itis? If it's the latter, the Left assures us that this is proof of rock solid mental stability.

The shooter also lived in tiny dwellings (sometimes a shack with neither running water nor electricity) which once might have seemed the mark of a spooky loner, but now is laudable for producing only a small, environmentally-sound carbon footprint.

Might his college records have provided a tip-off? Unlikely, since even those who spent their college days actively seeking out radicals (and later consorting with bomb-making terrorists) - as Obama boasts about in his autobiography - are clearly on the side of the angels. Still, the fact that the shooter got his degree in "public administration" suggests that he's harbored antisocial tendencies for quite awhile.

Sadly, there's no absolutely certain way to make sure that the insane (or people who have become insane over time) don't get access to guns - although Hope n' Change is genuinely open to hearing realistic ideas.

Until then, we suggest that the president drop his "weapons of war" rhetoric when talking about sane people who carry guns to help ensure public safety, and instead finally get serious about the actual wars and staggering death tolls in his Democrat-ruled inner cities.

Say what you will, the president isn't afraid to use Brut force.
