Shooting at Muhammad Cartoon Drawing Event in Texas

Eerily reminiscent of the Muhamad revenge attack in Paris, two gunmen in a vehicle fired several shots at security at a Muhamad art contest near Dallas, TX.

The City of Garland said that the men drove up in a vehicle and began shooting at a security guard in front of the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, TX.

Both gunmen were killed when local police returned fire and one security card was treated for a gunshot to the ankle. The security guard has since been released and is expected to recover fully.

The gun men used twitter to announce their attack shortly before it began and an suspected ISIS-related account praised it just after it occurred.

The center was hosting an event sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative that was giving $10,000 for the best cartoon depiction of the Prophet Muhammad.

The gunmen were left in the street for sometime after the failed attack as local officials were concerned about possible explosives on or around the bodies.


Many of you know that I grew up in Boston. No, not outside of Boston. Not North of Boston. Not 2 hours from Boston. But in Boston proper. I grew up in the days when the Mafia acted in plain view. They were powerful and didn’t care who saw what. They were above the law and knew it. They owned the law and the people were afraid, some in fear of their lives, some in fear of their welfare.

I’ve been told the Chicago Mafia is much more ruthless and powerful. I can’t imagine. What I grew up with was pretty bad.

You see, they could walk up to a busy intersection, shoot someone in the head, watch him fall to the ground, pop him a few more times for good measure, and through all this, no one would “see anything.” When the police arrived, eventually, and all the local proprietors were questioned, no one ever saw anything, ever! They knew something unspeakable would happen to them and no one could help them.

This is how the American people are feeling about the Obama administration. This “Gang” never stops. This Gang is above the law, with President Obama acting as “Don” or leader and Attorney General Eric Holder as his “Capo” or captain. This Gang has so crippled the people of this country that we have gone from a nation to fear and respect to a nation to be ridiculed and laughed at.

The Gang has ruined our relationships oversees. Nobel peace prize winner and freedom fighter Lech Wałęsa recently said that Mr. Obama has ruined the credibility of America.

Americans should have seen this coming as far back as the 2009 elections. The New Black Panther group intimidates white voters ON VIDEO. Don Obama’s ultimate law officer, Capo Holder, does NOTHING! DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams quit his job because he was basically told to back off. When he wouldn’t let it go, the Gang made it very uncomfortable for him.

Election fraud is not investigated. Tens of thousands of dead and illegals voted in the last presidential election and Capo Holder did NOTHING!

Many states have legalized marijuana, however, it is still against federal law and Capo Holder does NOTHING! The chief law enforcement officer of the United States, Capo Holder, won’t bother the states as long as they adhere to a few guidelines, one being it can’t be sold to minors. Because that law works so well on cigarettes and booze. No minors ever get those. (Yes, that’s sarcasm!)

The Gang won’t enforce a law banning same sex couples from receiving veterans benefits. Capo Holder said that even though it’s the law “Decisions by the Executive branch not to enforce federal laws are appropriately rare,” (though not with this Gang), this one makes sense because the law will eventually change. (Is that how our legal system works now?)

The Gang won’t prosecute Goldman Sachs or its employees for financial fraud. Capo Holder said, “We conducted an exhaustive investigation of allegations brought to light by a Senate panel investigating the financial crisis. And feel there is not enough to prosecute.” Huh? Every other agency but the Gang has found evidence of fraud.

Family members of Don Obama have somehow eluded immigration laws and the DOJ because the Gang has protected them. His uncle in Boston has owned a liquor store, been “technically” deported several times, failed to show up for deportation hearings several times, and been arrested for drunk driving. Even after all that, he is still running around free in this country! His aunt is fleecing welfare and wants more AND she is not even an American citizen.

Fast and furious caused the death of a Border Patrol Officer (at least one officer that we know of, and countless other people) and the Gang refuses to allow the DOJ to investigate.

Meanwhile, the Gang is actively pursuing at least one law-abiding German immigrant family to deport them back to their country of origin. Why? Their visa expired and their reason for seeking political asylum isn’t good enough for the Gang. A judge granted their asylum petition, but Capo Holder’s DOJ takes time out of their busy schedule to overturn the ruling and is deporting them anyway.

Yet the Gang refuses to pursue more pressing issues of national security, immigration, and voting laws and simply enforce the other laws on the books? What does this family have that the others don’t have? It’s actually what they don’t have… a connection to the Gang.

I could write so much more on this. Don Obama issues laws AKA Executive Orders. For someone who was supposed to be a constitutional professor he has no clue as to how a “bill becomes a law” and the checks and balances called out in the Constitution.

He obviously doesn’t understand that the presidency and a dictatorship are NOT one in the same.

People, PAY ATTENTION, the REAL MOB is working the White House. You have to play by their rules. Laws are only for you to follow and them to change on a whim. And should you happen to get in the way… there’s always the IRS.

Wake up America… or you’re going to lose it!

BREAKING: Shots Fired at Houston Airport – Gunman dead in apparent suicide

Two suspects sought in Denver 4/20 rally shooting

Fox31 KDVR is reporting that there were two people wounded at the 4/20 rally in Denver. Shots were fired shortly after 5pm Mountain time.


Police are seeking two suspects with the following descriptions:

Police are looking for two shooting suspects. One man is described as a black male with a light complexion, who is 6-foot-tall and 180 pounds. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and a Carolina baseball hat. The second suspect is described as a black male who was wearing a black and white checkered shirt.

Also police have confirmed that there were two wounded – one male, and one female – both apparently suffering from leg wounds, but their injuries are considered non-life-threatening.

There were approximately 15,000 people attending this event, that is meant to be a peaceful gathering in support of legal use of marijuana. Attendees quickly left the Civic Center Park area immediately after the shots rang out. There do not appear to be any confirmed reports at this time about any injuries due to the crowds, however the interviewed eyewitness (video above) stated she saw at least one person trampled.

Press reports indicate that a small dog was also shot.

This is a developing story, and may be updated as more details are confirmed.

A Time To Mourn – Even During Christmas

All Christmas’ are joyous.
Gods gift to man, celebrated.

Not just a baby in a manger…
But Good Will.

A hand of good will from a Good God, extended toward needy man in the most sacrificial expression this earth will ever know.

Love made tangible.
A quiet miracle birthed in an obscure place, yet celebrated even so, with angelic fanfare to humble shepherds.

It’s Christmastime.

But this year…our nation suffered a devastating blow.
We were not punched in our gut. We were not kicked in our sides.

We were raped savagely of our joy.
Our young ones – our innocent babies – were brutally, cruelly, yanked out of our grasps.

We were powerless to stop the insane mind that attacked them and he ripped into their little sweet bodies with bullets that were crafted with intent to stop evil men, not tear down young ones on the threshold of life.

This year, we will again celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25th.
Evil does not stop Good.

But our brothers and sisters of Sandy Hook mourn.
Gifts under trees will remain unopened, just as the eyes that would have sparkled with delight will also remain unopened.

Beds are not slept in.
Breakfast dishes are not left in the sink.
Shoes remain on the floor; there are no little toes to fill them.

Closets full of Christmas splendor that were meant to adorn little spindly frames will now retain their contents.

And mothers and fathers will wake to hearts of stone; no appetite, eyes clouded with pain, and arms aching with emptiness.

No voices at five a.m. to wake them up too early.
No one bounding upon the bed, or down the stairs.
No laughter.

No laughter because there are …
No children.

Celebrations continue all over our nation. Music plays through unseen speakers over our heads while Santas in the mall pose for one more snapshot.
But not for everyone.

A shadow hangs over our land.
This wound is deep.
We bleed still.
Christmas Day will come, and you will be tempted to put the thoughts of their suffering out of your mind so that you can enjoy what is before you.
That is human nature.

I adjure you most urgently: Ignore it.
Ignore that urge and walk to a quiet place, lifting those parents up in prayer as if you were praying for your own shattered heart.

It’s okay to cry on Christmas.
It’s okay to feel sad sometimes.

There is time to mourn.
Do not let them mourn alone.

They need your prayers.
Our prayers.

This Christmas as you celebrate, you will feel a small shadow pass between the brilliant sunlight of your own joy and its source.


It is the grief of your brothers and sisters of Sandy Hook.
It wafts through the atmosphere of our nation.

When you become aware of it, acknowledge it, and then acknowledge them – in prayer.

Take them to the One who has vowed that He will not leave our souls desolate.
Implore Him to help them recover, and then leave them in his care.

To see one who suffers, and feel sad, is not enough.
Do what you know you can do.
In this way, we love one another.
We are one nation under God.
Their suffering is our own.

Do not be afraid to feel sad on Christmas; rather, channel those emotions into something that will help them heal.

Remember with them…
Stand with them in spirit…
Mourn with them…

It is difficult.
It is painful.
It costs.
It is True Love.
And it is crucial for our nation’s healthy recovery.

Merry Christmas.

Facing Our Fate with Stoicism and Courage in the Midst of Our Grief

Whatever happened to staring down your fate with stoicism and courage, accepting what may be?

As I write this I reflect once again about the senseless shooting in Connecticut where over 20 people died, many of them young school children, at the hands of a troubled young man.

Already there is talk in political circles about changing the gun laws again, making it so that specific types of weapons and ammo are hard if not impossible to get.

I agree with many of my colleagues here at CDN. The presence of a gun is not the problem. It is not even the public schools with their wholehearted embrace of humanism. Even with humanism, the parents embrace their kids. No, I think it is time to recognize that evil does exist and will prey upon the weak mind in order to get its way.

We’ve abandoned any belief that there is a real Devil who is trying to lead us astray, but there is. One-Third of all heaven followed that demon to the Earth after the expulsion. Ever since the Devil and his followers have been tormenting us non-stop; filling us with lies and half truths. Institutions are filled with his victims.

Only the embrace of a higher power will free us from evil, and then evil will still be around, waiting in the wings. Until the final judgment, evil will be with us. We just have to suffer through.

In the meantime, we have to think and act in a fashion that the Lord would approve, doing as he would have us do, to love one another as he loved us. If we do that, the world will be a better place, marred only by the sudden and occasional outbreak of evil and grief.

Democrats Attack Tea Party & Gun Rights After Aurora Shooting

The Democrat-run media immediately dropped their regularly scheduled program of fluff news as far removed from any whiff of the disastrous Obama administration as possible to cover the tragic Aurora, Colorado shooting that took place at a late night screening of the film The Dark Knight Rises.

But this wasn’t just a sensationalistic media covering a breaking news event, but rather just another opportune moment for card-carrying Democrat “journolists” to attack the clearly non-violent tea party and to assail gun rights. Not that the activist media need any facts, or what used to be called “reportage,” to do so.

The mass murder took place at a multiplex theater late night and at least a hundred witnesses have varying reports on what actually took place. At such a time, when emotions are running high, there is a high risk of error. It is common practice to exercise great caution before jumping to conclusions about a news event.

When the news broke that the previously unknown suspect was one “James Holmes,” a 24 year old white male, the left-wing media again soiled themselves trying to connect him to the tea party. ABC News had an exchange between former Clinton staff George Stephanopolous and reporter Brian Ross that insinuated that there could be a tea party card to be played:

Stephanolpoulos: I’m going to go to Brian Ross. You’ve been investigating the background of Jim Holmes here. You found something that might be significant.

Ross: There’s a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado, page on the Colorado Tea party site as well, talking about him joining the Tea Party last year. Now, we don’t know if this is the same Jim Holmes. But it’s Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado.

Stephanolpoulos: Okay, we’ll keep looking at that. Brian Ross, thanks very much.

It was reported widely that there could be as many as 25 separate James Holmes in the Aurora area, and that the suspect’s car had Tennessee tags. It would be just as presumptuous to allege that the suspect was a tea party member as it would be to say that he was an Occupy Black Bloc thug or a card-carrying Democrat. It turns out that James Holmes is a 24 year-old PhD. student in Neuroscience, hardly fitting for most tea party activists.

The point is that now is the time to back off and gain some introspection about why this occurred. It is not the time to start casting aspersions or interjecting politics into the case.

But the media are running the Jared Loughner playbook once again. It’s all they know. Stay on the attack and keep trying to indoctrinate Americans that the leftwing way is the right way, and to hell with the facts and the human wreckage. Making spurious accusations that Sarah Palin was somehow responsible for Gabrielle Giffords’ shooter Jared Loughner’s psychosis was not just irresponsible, but cruel and baseless. The notion that the well-worn political symbol of a target could drive a normal person to shoot a Democrat congresswoman is flatly stupid, and anyone who would believe such a thing really should take a break from politics.

But the leftwing media are not able to help themselves in this case, just as they weren’t in the Loughner case or the Duke Lacrosse case or the Trayvon Martin case. They are incapable of learning, just as they are unable to separate the faux-compassion of their political agenda from the genuine emotion of caring about the feelings of individuals who are caught up in the tragic case at hand. The left must literally politicize everything; it is a Foucaultian impulse that leads to rampant cognitive fitting and selection bias. That is why it is impossible to reason with the hard left.

That is also why the Aurora shooting has prompted hasty calls for more gun control by the left, as led by New York City’s three-time Triumvir Michael Bloomberg. Just like in the Tucson shooting, and the Virginia Tech shooting before it, the figureheads of the left have to use every opportunity to push their gun control agenda.

It is obvious what the left’s ultimate “solution” to random acts of violence is: a police state and a defenseless populace. Would a completely disarmed theater audience be any safer than one where someone had a concealed weapon on him or her? The Aurora attacker was not even in the audience, but appears to have come through the emergency exit.

Those who want to associate the film The Dark Knight Rises, which has already received controversial and political reviews, with the mass murder in Aurora, should realize a few things. While the intensity of the violence in films may be going up, the number of total violent crime victims per 1,000 has gone down nearly 65% since 1973, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. And as esteemed criminologist John Lott has documented thoroughly, more guns does mean less crime.

Tragedies are not the occasion for election-year jockeying or political revenge. But as the Democrats Hillary Clinton and Rahm Emanuel have said themselves, never let a good crisis go to waste. But let’s be decent Americans and refrain from politicizing tragedies, only engaging the left to set the record straight and to protect any victims in the left’s path.

Armed 8th Grade Student Killed By Police In Texas School

Today in Brownville, Texas Police shot and killed a 15 year old who engaged them in a hallway at Cummings Junior High School  .

After receiving a call at about 8 a.m, that a student had a weapon, police rushed to school. Authorities said officers confronted the armed student in a hallway who pointed his weapon at them prompting them to shoot him three ties. No other injuries were reported.

The school was placed on lock down as soon as police were called. The school remained that way for two hours after the incident as SWAT searched every room to confirm no threat remained. One student said he was two classrooms away when he heard the shots. Parents were called and told to pick up their children and students  followed police out of the building boarding buses to be taken to a nearby park.

Detective J.J. Trevino of the Brownsville police said  its still being determined by investigators if the student fired any shots and they had no information why the student brought the gun with him. “It’s still under investigation, as far as how he came about to bringing the weapon or if he encountered anybody or anything else”.

The student, who’s named has not been released, was declared dead at the hospital and an autopsy has been ordered.
