At mass this morning I checked my phone to make sure it was off and I got a Breaking News about a possible terror attack in Orlando at a gay nightclub. 20 killed. Who has the best skinny on all that?

Jihadi rampage. Trump's gonna lose for sure now. oh noes.

I admit to breathing a sigh of relief when they started telling us he was not a good old southern boy.

Sue,exactly. Hubby and I looked at each other this morning and said,please don't let his name be Billy Bob.

James D.

I'm with Beasts' last couple of comments on the last thread (re: Romney).

I'm also with henry and sbw above.

At some point the so-called elites will get the message that saying "Yeah, we broke everything, but we're the only ones who know how to fix it, so you're stuck with us. And by the way, shut up." is not flying anymore.

It would be FAR better for all concerned if they got that message sooner, adopted a little bit of humility, and began to police themselves. Because if they don't, the rest of society will do it for them, and that's not going to be pleasant for anybody.

Beasts of England

Homophobic, workplace gun violence for the win!! Damn you, NRA!

Miss Marple 2

I agree with Beasts and James D.

I can't add anything to Beast's comment, except to emphasize his calling of Romney an "asshole", with which I heartily agree.

Beasts of England

The Libtard Victimhood Pyramid must be feeling stressed out this morning! Their two favorite interest groups collide!! How will they ever blame Trump for this? Just kidding!! Any minute now...

Michael (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

Condolences to all of the victims' families and loved ones, without consideration of their lifestyle and/or preferences.

Trump will need to be suitably respectful of the victims, and should not be seen to be taking advantage of the shooting.

However, in the weeks to come, he needs to drum the message home that oBOzo and Hil-LIAR-y are responsible for the rise of ISIS.

Our government's first duty is the protection of Americans from terrorist attacks, and the Dems (including Hill-LIAR-y) have failed at controlling our borders and regulating immigration to keep terrorists out of the U.S.

In other news.

You'd think that France, after Charlie Hebdo and the Stadium/Cafe attacks would be on high teror alert for their Euo2016 soccer championships. But no. Down in Marseille, the English and Russkies have rioting amuk. Then, the Russkies have been able to smuggle flare guns, smoke bombs, truncheons, gum shields and balaclava's into the Stadium for the game and use them.

There is a video on Daily Mail of the Russkies firing a flare from their seating area over to the seating itarea of the English fans. Then they chased them with the truncheons covering themselves with the balaclavas. Throwing smoke bombs and security just stood around watching it all.

Do you think the DAESH brothers are watching this and gong hmmmmm?

Thankfully Orlando is not located in the South. Everything south of the panhandle / Jacksonville parallel is just 'Florida'. True fact. :)

It's deluded and ridiculous to make a case that Mr. Trump is racist. If he were racist he would not be so warmly welcoming toward all different races that have jumped on the Trump Train, he'd be discouraging their support.

How do the Libtard react when one of their victim groups (Goat Rapists) goes after another?

I think they call it intersectionality, Captain.

And here's the thing: how long before Team R goes squish in this event? 'This event, Beasts - how dare you!!' Yeah, that's just it. The left never lets a crisis go to waste, but the GOPe will be tripping over themselves to empathize before this day is done. Barky will use this event to create a new program and Ryan will fully fund it. And then some. Doubt me? And that's why we continue to lose.

Call out the insanity of Muslim immigration, call out the insanity of multiculturalism, start pointing fingers and screaming at the top of their lungs about how awful the left is...

cheerleader

If any person thinks that there is the slightest possibility that Mr. Trump will not be "suitably respectful of the victims" they don't have a clue what Mr. Trump is all about.

As for him not taking advantage of the shooting, he sure as hell should use it as an example of what is going to become more frequent unless national security is beefed up.

Captain Hate

With Romney just the most recent GOPe presidential candidate to be rejected by blacks and other minorities, it's not he speaks with one iota of insight into what they care about.

At first I thought it doesn't seem possible that with NASA dedicated, first and foremost, to establishing peace with the religion of peace that Florida of all places should experience islamic violence.

But then I remembered any guy who commits violence in the name of islam is not really islamic.
If that's really true then I have to wonder why we need to do all the outreach to muslims since real muslims would never hurt anyone anyway.
Seems like a paradox.

rse

Not anymore.

cheerleader

He has talked about the massacre in Paris nonstop, should he now not talk about Orlando, (a city in his official home state)?

The notion that he shouldn't use what happened there to illustrate his points is stupid.

Jack is Back!

pagar,

Orlando is no where near Palm Beach or Treasure Coast compared to MIami, Ft. Lauderdale, The Palm Beaches (i.e. Trump's Mar-A-Lago). Could be a distraction since PBC and Broward would be on high alert. This is something our counter-terror people have to get better at especially the local PD's.

Fine. I seem to have gone from the BH carpool wheels of choice to the BH housewife wheels of choice. At my age though I really like that backup camera and my girls agree with me that it is just about impossible to go back to a car after an suv. I feel like I am sitting on the pavement in a car.

Thank Gawd it wasn't a transgender night club.

That would have been most badly.

Captain Hate

Jeff Sessions on Rove News Sunday with Bret Baier is surprised that the FBI is already stating Islamic extremists were involved. Says Rodham will shred the Constitutional right to bear arms. Trump had a bad week but has given some outstanding speeches on addressing what people want to hear and will benefit from this terrorist attack. Romney needs to concentrate on the big issues and stop sniping at somebody who needs to win. Trump's lawyers probably didn't have the specific requirements to recuse Judge La Raza. Zippy shouldn't have endorsed Rodham while she's being investigated.

Beasts of England

Sunday Morning just had a nice segment about John Mayer joining the Grateful Dead. Holy intercultural competence!!

Hume bends over backwards to not blame the mooooslims. Julie Pace says it was unusual to blame the moooooooooslims. Will finds it hard to believe that ISIS would do this; go back to nighty night George. Juan says Jeff Sessions is a h8er who just wants to blame Zippy and Rodham.

Juan says Repubs need to unify and Trump is a horrible person to unify around. Will says Trump won't listen to the GOPe wisdom and tosses in a Mick Jagger/Keith Richards analogy; stick to the Cubs, George.

GUS

Head Imam is on the scene. Not to worry.

Sue

The shooters father says this was not about religion so why is there an Imam speaking now?

Beasts of England

And now they have an Imam speaking at the official presser. He's making excuses. He's now 'cautioning the media' about rushing to judgment. This dude has been speaking longer than the FBI guy. And now he's giving advice about 'mass shootings'!! I swear...

What in the ever-living [redacted] has happened to this country?

Thanks.

How will the left be able to keep the LGBT community focused on trivia like wedding cakes and Trans guys in girls locker rooms, if they think they might be murdered by Islamists?

Jeffrey Varasano(FB)

Gays have been used as pawns in a larger leftist goal of tearing down the foundation of western civilization. And towards that same goal, leftists have allied themselves with Islam because sharia is strong anti-constitutional force. This alliance exposes the lie that Gays and women are important to the left.

Facebook is saying that the guys was a registered democrat.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Back to clarice's pieces for a minute;
The EU in and of itself is not necessarily a crazy idea. Given Europe's history it probably is, but there is a chance it could have worked.
But to have any chance it would have to have been as a method to break down barriers, simplify lives and lead to atrophy of Europe's chronic bureaucratic overload. It's easy to see in theory how that simplification could have been put into place.
But, whether due to poor execution or malevolent motives or, more likely, both, it has left in place the things already suppressing their growth and liberty while removing mostly superficial barriers.
Then they set about constructing an awe inspiring apparatus of new interference, meddling and suppression of both freedom and wealth creation and are doing so from a galaxy of satellite satrapies revolving around the Brussells Empire itself, all of which are vastly less accountable than the institutions they displaced, or more commonly, were laid over the top of.
The great question is whether the people of Europe can summon the will to reject both the soft headed, paternalistic suicide of the nanny state and the soft hearted, paternalistic guilt of incubating an ideology pledged to and fully capable of destroying it from within.

Anyone think a new Peace of Westphalia is more likely a result of the coming crack up than a new Dark Ages?

SenatorAmy Klobuchar is on for Queen Rodham and doesn't want to blame ISIS but does talk about the need to stop funding the vermin. LONE WOLF. Rodham believes in the right to bear arms so shut up. SENSIBLE REFORMS. Won't comment on how Rodham will differ from King Zippy on the economy. INFRASTRUCTURE AND IMMIGRATION REFORM. I went to law school with Comey so shut up. As a former prosecutor she says Rodham is innocent and the media won't look at Trump's tax returns which should be a felony. I know nothing about how Slick benefitted from Rodham being Secretary of State and the Clinton foundation has turned Haiti into a paradise. If you respect history Zippy's replacement for Scalia will be confirmed.

Pace: Rodham had a good week but is perceived as massively dishonest and is in trouble if voters concentrate on that. Hume: Rodham's untrustworthy numbers are off the charts. Points out that idiot Klobuchar answered questions about Rodham by talking about Trump. Juan: this will be a dirtbag campaign on both sides. There have been no leaks about a Rodham indictment. Will: Rodham will win big on no indictment. Pace: there are so many accusations on both sides it might be a wash. Hume: all these stories about Trump have been out there and now miraculously come to light. Juan: Zippy's high approval ratings will help Rodham.

When the Imam started downplaying the magnitude/significance of the shooting at the presser, somebody should have slapped the crap out of him right on the spot.

Any other mass killings...no matter the killer's motives....the elites stand beside the people/groups that were killed.

Not if the killer is a Muslim though...then they stand with the killer's group.

TMZ: "Omar Mateen Terrorist was 29-Year-Old Islamic Radical (PHOTO)

The killer in the Orlando nightclub slaughter is 29-year-old Omar Mateen. TMZ has done a records search and found he held a Florida security officer license and a state firearms license.

He's an American citizen and he has family that are not -- his parents are Afghan. Authorities say he was a terrorist and was targeting gays. They say in addition to terrorism this is a hate crime.

Authorities also believe he is part of the radical Islam movement, although they do not know if it was an organized attack or if he was a lone wolf. Authorities also believe Mateen specifically targeted a gay club.

Mateen's father told NBC News, "This has nothing to do with religion." He says his son became angry after seeing 2 men kissing a few months ago in Miami, and he speculates that could have triggered his decision to kill.

Law enforcement says Mateen was well prepared, with an assault weapon, a handgun and 2 suspicious devices.

The NYPD tells TMZ, Mateen has no association with the department, and that the shirts he was photographed in were unofficial garments that could be purchased at any store.

50 people were murdered and another 53 injured inside Pulse nightclub in Orlando. It's the biggest slaughter at the hands of a gunman in American history. "

http://www.tmz.com/2016/06/12/terrorist-omar-mateen-gay-nightclub-murder/

----------
Media will try hardest to spin:

1) It was a gay hate crime and had nothing to do with him being a Muslim (we know how much Muslims in the middle east love gays)

2) Need more gun control (even though he was a licensed security guard and would have gone through background checks)
