The Times missed his cannabis dot com rantings? They go there more than they go to google.

Rick Ballard

I don't think "bitterly clinging to his bong" fits the narrative, Henry.

Cecil Turner

In Korea, we had Task Force Smith . . . because the NoKo's would give up as soon as they saw who they were fighting. In Vietnam, it was LTC Moore who led his cavalry troopers into Ia Drang to overawe the PAVN, and in Iraq/Syria it's . . . a scapegoat to be named later:

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter informed Congress earlier today that a “specialized expeditionary targeting force” would be sent to Iraq on top of the 3,500 personnel already there, with the authority to operate in Syria too. This mix of Special Forces “will over time be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather intelligence, and capture ISIL leaders,” explained Carter.
What could possibly go wrong?

Amazing all of the vitriol going into this case. The guy is clearly mentally ill and once again its about guns and religious Christian fanatics.

From the Times link;

In May of that year [1991], according to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, Mr. Dear was arrested and convicted in Charleston for the unlawful carrying of a “long blade knife” and the illegal possession of a loaded gun.

Either of those sounds serious enough to have triggered a NICS or background check disapproval [punishable by one year in prison, whether felony or misdemeanor] so I'm not sure what new gun laws would have stopped him.

Chicago Police now leaking Rahm was involved in the coverup.

henry:

One of his rants was about the end of the world due to . . . hurricanes.

How do we know that doomsday predictions about climate change isn't what triggered him? Why won't the Times "question the timing" of the shooting happening this close to the Paris climate conference?

Wow...typhuspad has a real problem with Mr. Ballard's post. He got stuck in the naughty bin - and now when I just tried to copy and paste it here, I got sent to the naughty bin. I'm going break it up in smaller chunks to see what if anything holds it up that way...

Jeff Dobbs

Rick Ballard said:
Did I miss the signing of a Status of Forces agreement with Iraq and Syria? Is there a UN agreement re Syria that has slipped my notice?

Jeff Dobbs

Wow. It simply will not accept the second of Mr. Ballard's sentences. I tried editing it a bit to see if certain keywords were triggering it to no avail.

Well, I'll beat you yet, typhuspad.

The Infamous Ignatz

Remember the cool, progressive CEO at Gravity who raised his employees wages to $70K and took a pay cut?
Remember how the media fawned on the little doofus?

An actual journalist at Bloomberg did a little digging and as it turns out he is a horrible liar who took those actions in response to a lawsuit filed by his brother, a minority shareholder, that claims the clown was paying himself far too much.
It also turns out his ex wife wrote years ago about the physical abuse she suffered from the guy in a forum and at a time in which she would not benefit from the revelation and in which she didn't name him. His response to that is bizarre.
Classic expose of a fraud.

Thanks for digging that comment out. I'm very curious about the interface between American troops and the Iran led Shia militia which is doing much of the fighting in non-Kurdish areas.

It should be very exciting.

Industrial espionage was much less glamorous, narciso, for the most part.The Swiss were making huge profits shipping restricted technologies to the East. My job at one time was sabotaging such shipments.Amazing what saline solution in the right places can do to semiconductor processing equipment.

The real irony was that the Russians left so much of it sitting outdoors during their brutal winters as we found out later on.I was at a factory in the early 80's and found some of the equipment frozen solid with rust when it was uncrated.

Janet

On topic...
It is disgraceful how pro-life Americans are being slandered in the MFM.

I wrote this on FB
A reminder about the insane man that shot people in Colorado.
NBC wrote - "-Dear said "no more baby parts" in reference to Planned Parenthood, two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the case told NBC News."

Who are the law enforcement sources? Why not say the names & tell their jobs?
All the stories that mention that quote are referencing NBC news & reprinting what NBC claimed.

Here's the link - https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/planned-parenthood-shooting-suspect-made-comment-about-no-more-baby-n470706

Then there is this from the Colorado Springs Gazette -
"Robert Lewis Dear, 57, told investigators "no more baby parts" after surrendering to heavily armed officers at the city's lone Planned Parenthood clinic Friday, multiple news outlets reported. ...The reports cited unnamed law enforcement sources, which The Gazette could not independently confirm. It was first reported by NBC News."

Here's the link - https://gazette.com/possible-motive-for-accused-colorado-springs-planned-parenthood-gunman-no-more-baby-parts/article/1564495

Multiple news outlets just reprinted what NBC news wrote....so it is more factually true to say that ONLY NBC news claims Dear said, "no more baby parts".

This link is the best one I've come across detailing what happened at the Colorado shooting - https://libertyunyielding.com/2015/11/29/what-really-happened-in-the-colorado-springs-shooting/

*the initial 911 report of gunfire, made at 11:38 AM by an employee of Planned Parenthood from inside the building, indicated the gun shots were coming from outside.

*We do know Planned Parenthood has said none of its employees was injured in the attack. In fact, the clinic took its “active shooter” security precautions and moved all of its 15 employees, and the nine patients who were reportedly present when the gunfire was heard, to a safe room in the back, away from the front door.

*...period of time lasted until at least 1:34 PM, when police told the local news reporters that the shooting didn’t appear related to the Planned Parenthood clinic (see Examiner link above). It was apparently sometime after 1:34 PM when Dear actually entered the Planned Parenthood offices.

(so for 2 hrs. the insane guy is outside & shooting people outside)

*they reported Dear’s surrender at 4:52 PM. Police said he shouted that he would surrender, and did not resist.

from Gateway Pundit - "Planned Parenthood officials have confirmed none of the people killed in the shooting or 9 victims who were injured were Planned Parenthood abortion clinic staff or patients and authorities have released no motive for the shooter as to whether or not he actually targeted Planned Parenthood."

Chitown Jerker

"Chicago Police now leaking Rahm was involved in the coverup."

What coverup? The FBI, US Attorney and States Attorney offices were involved in the case early on and the dash cam video was known (including to McDonald family) and part of a lawsuit (regarding release prior to any trial and potential impact on jury pool). Any murder charge is a state or Federal decision, not at city level.
