    I haven’t heard anything from Obama yet on new gun control., That means

    a. He is still on the golf coursed.
    b. He is too buys plotting with the Pope to make air conditioners illegal.
    c. He knows the shooters are Muslim brought into the country as refugees

    or
    d. The Dems in the House and Senate have tied him up so that he wont further hurt
    hurt their chances of reelection by talking about gun control.

  • retired military

    Witnesses will report the gunmen yelled “Allah Akbar” and Obama will give a speech against guns and work place violence while saying Islam is a religion of peace and that we shouldn’t judge all Muslims by the actions of a few but everyone who has a gun should have it taken away because these 2 killed people with guns.

    • Brett Buck

      To my tremendous surprise, one of the gunmen in this random, unplanned, lone wolf attack is name Syed Farook. Workplace violence? Right-wing gun nut? Another in the long string of repressive college president murder sprees? Rush Limbaugh fan? Inquiring minds are baffled!

      • retired military

        And Obama mentions workplace violence quite forcefully today.

  • Scalia

    Two Suspects Named in Shootings…

    Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik

    Farook is reportedly a Muslim. Contra Chico, they don’t appear to have any connection with the Ku Klux Klan.

    • The facts and chicka puta rarely have much to do with each other.

      • Jwb10001

        Are you kidding, don’t you know it’s a FACT that Cheney sent anthrax through the mail, it’s a FACT that Bush masterminded the 9/11 attacks. It’s a FACT if you disagree with Chico you are either 1) Any Rynd cultist 2) Neo Con 3) Chickenhawk 4) War monger 5) Member of the Oligarchy. By the way none of those descriptions ever fits a democrat, but it’s a FACT that Chico is not a democrat, he’s a member of the paranoid, conspiracy hypocrites society.

        • retired military

          You forgot Bush blew up the damns during Katrina and if we get invaded by ET over global warming it is Bush’s fault.

    • fustian24

      I find it interesting that Farook got violent when he moved closer to Islam.

      But, how can that be?

      • I find it interesting predictable that Farook got violent when he moved closer to Islam.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    Just some work place violence that definitely wouldn’t have occurred if, like Obama says, we had some “common sense gun laws” which he again called for even as events where unfolding:

    “LAW ENFORCEMENT SOURCES tell Fox News that San Bernardino, Calif. shooting suspects Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik left multiple pipe bombs and other explosive devices at various sites associated with their killing spree Wednesday — including three pipe bombs at the Inland Regional Center, where they murdered 14 people and injured 17 others, multiple pipe bombs inside the SUV where they were shot and killed after a gun battle with police Wednesday afternoon, and more pipe bombs and other small explosives at a house in the nearby city of Redlands which investigators were searching in connection with the rampage.” http://www.foxnews.com/

    The shooters were just a regular, peace-loving muslim couple who obviously snapped in controllable rage in response to the husband’s bullying, islamophobic co-workers who threw them a baby shower when Syed returned to work after his paternity leave:

    “Baccari described Farook as reserved and said he showed no signs of unusual behavior. Earlier this year he traveled to Saudi Arabia and returned with a wife, later growing a beard, Baccari said.” http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_CALIFORNIA_SHOOTINGS?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2015-12-02-18-41-28

    “Farook’s father, who was not named, told the New York Daily News his son was Muslim and “very religious.” He who would leave work to pray and then go back, his father said.”

    “Reisinger told the newspaper her former colleagues held a baby shower for him and he recently returned from paternity leave.”

  • Par4Course

    The San Bernardino shooters, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, were Muslim – what a shock. Of course out glorious leader thinks the REAL danger comes from climate change – and too many guns. The true problem is Muslim killers and too few guns in the hands of the rest of the population.

  • LiberalNightmare

    Things like this dont happen in Paris.

  • Hank_M

    And who does the left go after? Anyone expressing thoughts and prayers in support of the victims.

  • fustian24

    “Farook” is Arabic for “Tea Bag”.

    • jim_m

      I thought it stood for “Right-wing, Christian, gun nut that has nothing to do with islam, the middle east and besides it’s all the fault of Israel and the Jews!”

      • fustian24

        That’s what “Tashfeen” translates to.

        Racist.

        • Also translates as chicka puta.

          I didn’t consider her because a woman is beneath any serious consideration. Just trying to maintain that Islamic world view so I can understand them and find out why they hate us.

  • jim_m

    Isn’t it funny how an act of islamic terrorism takes place and all of our resident lefties scatter.

    • Also silent (but by no means missed) is our own Holey Joe.

      • Brett Buck

        The pope hasn’t told him what to think about this yet.

        • He claims to be off grid but the message so stating came shortly after my comment above.

          • jim_m

            Mr Brutally Self-Righteous posted on his own blog that he was going on hiatus starting the 29th. Conceivably, this is a Christmas gift to the internet.

    • Brett Buck

      Of course. They have nothing to offer or to gain by posting. I am sure someone is composing a sanctimonious and condescending post about avoiding a backlash, and how another mindless massacre by islamists is morally equivalent to not paying for birth control, or something equivalently stupid.

    • cathymv

      Hillary is awfully quiet today. Obama being called the “Calmer in Chief” by fluffer CBS – They even know that he is not a Commander in Chief – which is what this country needs but does not have. You will also notice the usual liberal suspects who immediately started blaming NRA and christians are suspiciously quiet today too.

      • jim_m

        She’s busy trying to identify some obscure internet video to blame.

      • Hank_M

        “Hillary is awfully quiet today”

        Maybe she woke up and recalled saying recently….”Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”

        • retired military

          Hillary is directing the antiMuslim film which she will say was the root cause of the attack.

          • Brett Buck

            What boggles the mind is that even if that were true, these nitwits would consider that a valid “rationale” for an attack. Suppose someone releases a 2-hour movie of nothing but people desecrating Korans and drawing funny cartoons of Mohammed? Would that justify gunning people down in the streets? That seemed to be the case for both Benghazi (Hillary and Susan Rice) and Charlie Hebdo (Lurch). What sort of sick mind could possibly make that connection?

    The NY Daily news headlines today:

    School prayer has been taken out of the schools, even a moment of silence has been banned. No more pledge of allegiance because it is offensive. School coaches are threatened with termination if students and/or fans pray before a game. Tebow is made fun of when he kneels briefly to thank God. Crosses are taken down because they are deemed offensive, even at catholic schools. Commandments are removed from public/gov arenas as they are also deemed offensive. Newspapers spell God g-d because they fear offending someone by spelling God correctly. Now certain politicians are shamed for praying for the people who were killed and their families instead of shaming the politicians for using these deaths to push a political agenda?

    And NOW you blame God for not fixing evil?

    Why not: Allah isn’t fixing this

    • jim_m

      The dems and the left aren’t fixing this either. Heck, they’re making it worse! They are trying to advance their irrelevant agenda instead of addressing this.

      The bodies weren’t cold before Hillary and 0bama started advancing their gun confiscation agenda.

    • Sky__Captain

      It doesn’t look like Allah is doing anything, either.

    • Paul Hooson

      Actually, many Jews often also spell God as G-D, because they feel that his name is too holy to spell out. Sadly, so many persons often the name of God so lightly that you would think that his last name is Damn.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    Oh, look, that nice young Muslim couple were entrepreneurs making birth control devices: “Another source described a house in Redlands that was being searched in connection with the shooting as “an IED facility.” Um….wait a min….Oh, never mind.

  • Paul Hooson

    This well organized murder of innocent persons has all of the hallmarks of terrorism and sympathy for radicalism.

  • retired military

    Obama’s mouthpiece (aka press secretary) was talking about Obama’s planned Executive Order against guns and stated something dribble along the lines
    that this will make it harder for terrorists to get guns.
    He was asked by the reporter “so are you saying that 2 terrorists who are sitting around
    and discussing mass murder will be stopped by Obama’s executive order?”
    The mouthpiece then started into “well we dont know what caused this event to happen… blah blah blah”

    An interesting read on the larger subject of tragedy and gun control.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    It’s the Christian Jew’s fault.

    I heard last night on either CNN or Fox [they’re next to each other on my tv’s non-existent dial and I switch back and forth] that Farook got into an argument with a devout Christian about whether Islam was a religion of peace [the Christian ultimately won the argument in what can only be described as a Pyrrhic victory]. The report stated that the argument continued at the event on Wednesday, and Farook left and returned with his lovely wife. Farook was obviously triggered by the Islamophobic comments of the Christian, and, per John Kerry, went on a perfectly understandable, savage, murderous, barbaric rampage.

    Today, I read this in the Express from the UK that the Christian who engaged Farook in the argument was actually a Messianic Jew, who recently converted. What’s the over-under on how long until a self-loathing leftist blames San Bernardino on the Christian Jew?:

    “Another victim was Nicholas Thalasinos, a Messianic Jew who wore a tie clip with the Star of David.

    It is thought that the 52-year-old restaurant inspector had an argument with suspect Syed Farook about Islam just two weeks before the tragedy.

    Mr Thalasinos’ wife, Jennifer, said: “My husband was just a very devout believer.

    “He became born again a couple of years ago and because of that I had a very strong faith, so I know that he’s in a much better place.”

    Well, another California “progressive” has aimed her authority directly at the problem that caused the San Bernardino massacre – the First Amendment:

    “The day after a horrific shooting spree by a “radicalized” Muslim man and his partner in San Bernardino, California, Attorney General Loretta Lynch pledged to a group of Muslim activists that she would take aggressive action against anyone who used “anti-Muslim rhetoric” that “edges toward violence…Claiming that violence against Muslims is on the rise and citing France’s clamp down on potentially radicalized mosques, Lynch suggested the Constitution does not protect “actions predicated on violent talk” and pledged to prosecute those responsible for such actions.” http://www.dailywire.com/news/1593/loretta-lynch-vows-prosecute-those-who-use-anti-james-barrett

  • Walter_Cronanty

    More California craziness post-San Bernarndino, as Barbara Boxer advocates for “sensible gun laws”:

    “”Sensible gun laws work. We’ve proven it in California. And we’re not going to give up. “http://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2015/12/04/barbara-boxer-sensible-gun-laws-work-weve-proven-it-in-california-n2088793

    OOPS – “ATF Says Weapons Used in San Bernardino Shooting Were Illegal in California”

    “While we hear more grandstanding about the need for more gun control, keep in mind all the current laws that were broken to execute this violent massacre:

    The shooters used weapons they did not purchase (sounds like a straw purchase or illegal transfer).

    The shooters modified guns to accept high-capacity magazines.

    The shooters modified guns for automatic fire.

    Can anyone think of a law we could put in place that these homicidal maniacs, or any criminal or homicidal maniac, would follow? I can’t.

    Well, this makes me feel much better about allowing young, female Syrian refugees with children into the US:

    “…CBS reports that one of the shooting suspects passed the Department of Homeland Security’s “counterterrorism screening as part of her vetting” for a visa. Federal officials maintain that they have a rigorous and effective screening process in place for people from countries such as Syria that have significant jihadist movements, …

    So is Chico not responding until he finds a way or angle to blame the israelis for this?
