You can’t make this stuff up. Democratic Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) told reporters on Tuesday that the Islamic knife and bomb terrorist attacks this past weekend in Minnesota, New York, and New Jersey were the fault of Republicans for blocking new gun control legislation.

Nor was Durbin alone. Harry Reid (D-Nevada) joined him in blaming Republicans and the lack of new gun control rules for the terrorist attacks.

    Here’s a little reminder for you all where this IMO all started..
    (I remember thinking at the time that I did not like these words and what they potentially meant)

    Refresh your memory? This is the president that started it all, and the Clinton’s, his son and Obama have delivered us to where we are today, essentially failing in most every “lofty goal” set forth by this, the “well intentioned ” former president. A world where the “law of the jungle” and apparently common sense no longer applies”.

    Like I have pointed out, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Although I really do not interpret G.H.W. Bush’s statements in all that good of a way in the long term. I read further into it and understand that for this “New World Order” to exist the country that will make it all possible by necessity must be diminished.

    The American Constitution and the Bill Of Rights must be diluted and not promoted, for the greater good of course. And we have all of this counter intuitive crap (like the story above) issuing forth from the political party’s and the purposefully confused populous. G.H.W. Bush started us all down this road to insane thinking.

    I say BS to these “lofty” goals.

    OK, this sure sounds like pie in the sky! What is missing is the extent of depravity that some go ,based on the human condition. The Clintons push those limits of ethics well past anything even remotely close to the 10 commandments. No wonder those precepts are being removed from court houses etc.

    I had a lawyer tell me how to put them out of business; “People just need to do what they promise!”

    Once it’s understood that reason is not a factor it all makes sense.

  • Can not one single reporter ask ‘how’?

    Trump has it exactly right. Obama, Hillary, and the Democrats treat their fellow Americans worse than they treat Islamic Terrorists.

    Excuses and defenses are always provided for Islamic Terrorists while the worst things that can be said are said of their fellow Americans.

    Our political hacks should become lifetime blood donors, , on an hourly basis


    Was it Franklin that said “For those who sacrifice freedom for security, deserve neither”?
    Sadly, our people are surrendering to that mantra because of worsening economy, “What good is freedom when you can’t put food on the table or a roof over your head.”

    Just read Zero Level Heroes. Their area commander sure treated the Taliban better than the US soldiers! The Taliban even had a wife and daughter shot so some Taliban survivors could get out free. Truly, the Israel Defense Force is a better way. Putin would not put up with it; and he gets a pass from prosecution but not an American president who defends the country! The world is going to pot! Or maybe it is on it!
