Obama’s Impassioned Mass-Murder Speech Includes Error

The President’s impassioned Oregon speech, moving as it was, missed a key point that could lead to real progress on this terrible issue of mass murder.

The 16 black Americans shot and murdered in ghettos that same day, and the day before, tragically got no news coverage.

This is stunning, unmentioned — and those lives matter.

That black-lives gunfire atrocity is repeated, daily. And will remain true tomorrow when another 16 are murdered, but get no “coverage” — 6,000 per year.

The “Graph of Death” Mr. Obama asked for is already available here:
(with gut-wrenching explanation)

By focusing on an isolated “newsworthy” tragedy in one place, Mr. Obama unknowingly obscures the real issue, and does indeed politicize it — as he forthrightly admitted.

NOTE: Every action of this Oregon murderer is already 100% illegal — legal scholars know the call for new laws is superfluous and disingenuous. It is a political agenda that weakens support and the true effort to solve the problem.

The President made a repeated and critical mistake: New laws affecting all Americans will not affect the lone psychotics who commit these atrocities —


Obama was visibly exasperated at the press conference on Thursday.

The medical community stands as the greatest obstacle in getting to the psychotics.

And the biggest ignored issue of all is: The existing background checks have stopped two million people from buying guns because they are known criminals or mentally unfit — and they are simply turned loose on the streets.

We have their names and addresses — and our government just sets them free, right after they try to buy guns.*

Mr. President, do something about that if you’re really serious.

Don’t try to pass something else, that you know and admit Congress and the public will resist. Act now.

If you want more common-sense solutions, call me.

    Wedding ring is in for repair again this year…….

    Just passing this on with no comment, interesting observation though….

    The Wedding ring is in for repair again this year.

    Since when does a plain wedding band need repairs, along with your watch, for a whole month? In a press conference last week Obama was not wearing his wedding ring nor was he wearing his watch. When noticed, his staff said his ring was out for repairs. No reason was given for the missing watch.
    So it’s just a coincidence that Muslims are forbidden from wearing jewelry during the month of Ramadan…
    Can’t possibly be that, because although he hasn’t gone to a Christian church service since entering the White House, we know he’s a committed Christian “cause he said so during his campaign”
    This is the same president that spent the Christmas holidays in Hawaii to avoid religious obligations as president at the White House. His children do not receive Christmas presents. Let’s just face the facts and quit trying to distort the truth, we have a Muslim for president in the White House, and he has no knowledge of American history.
    Please pass this on to believers of what is happening to our Great Nation and to those who are still in denial.
    I love this country; it’s the current government leadership I worry about!
    What have we as a country become? How far have we fallen?

    I just want to say to the men, women, children and families involved, and to their loved ones. I truly am sorry that this has happened. And to all of those that believe everything that happens everyday is fake, how sad a life it is. There are real people in this world that seek pointless violence on those around them. And real innocents everyday get killed. Not every shooting Like this is stage craft. Yes our government is responsible for a lot of nasty twisted sick shit. Yes we should hold them accountable. This was real. This happened.

  • Doc Loch October 5, 2015, 8:43 pm

    And this hyprocrite has the gall to talk about mass murder when he is himself under investigation for mass murder of innocent civilians to the tune of hundreds. The commander in chief is now under investigation for WAR CRIMES committed in the air-strike on innocent civilians in a hospital and dr’s and staff. He defininitely “has a sickness in his mind!”

    Want to bet he never sees prison for his crimes!!!! Check out the accusations by Dr’s Without Borders of War Crimes against the United States Government on Zerohedge dot com.

  • Eric Baugher October 5, 2015, 7:32 pm

    What he dosen’t understand is that the actor had an adgenda, to kill said people. Whether with a gun, explosives, a car, or whatever he could find. You can’t stop these people by making more gun laws. Mental health and HIPPA laws need to be addressed.

    I listened to every word of Obama’s speech &, more importantly, I watched his facial twists & twitches. This is a man bordering on insanity or worse. I predict that the next 15 months, until his LEGAL time in the Oval Office is over, will be a very rocky road for all Constitution loving Americans as this silly little man-child pulls out all the stops to diarm us & change our status from Citizen to Subject.

  • USMC8541 October 5, 2015, 3:24 pm

    Obummer should be covering this incident up instead of using it to push his illegal anti-gun agenda as he is ultimately the person most responsible for this attack. Chris Harper Mercer is on a list of 87,000 known/suspected Islamic terrorists that was provided to the Obummer administration, but refused because of current policy. This is a case of muslim terror that Obummer is twisting into gun violence. Reference: http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index1921.htm

  • Bill Stirling October 5, 2015, 11:43 am

    The President and the US Government send guns and support to civilians fighting oppressive governments daily. Ironic, as the President purposely circumvents the Constitution! A document he “Swore to Defend”. Christians are murdered and crucified daily, as are unborn baby’s! Christians singled out in Oregon Shooting, an act of terrorism inside our Homeland. The President only blames the “Gun”, when he should blame himself, and the Federal Government! If they had only used those resources to help the mentally ill, instead of undermining the Constitution and oppressing/demonizing law abiding civilian gun owners! Which Constitutional right are you willing to give up next! Freedom of Speech? Due Process? Search and Seizure? Trial by Jury? The power of States and People? Bad people do bad things! Good people with guns protect themselves and You from these bad actors!

    “The media insist that crime is the major concern of the American public today. In this connection they generally push the point that a disarmed society would be a crime-free society. They will not accept the truth that if you take all the guns off the street you still will have a crime problem, whereas if you take the criminals off the street you cannot have a gun problem.”

    “You have to watch this report all the way to the end”

    NBC announce that in the aftermath of this event Oregon “will” allow carrying of firearms on campus with the proper permit-I am paraphrasing of course. You just got to here it at the end.

  • Chris Cole October 3, 2015, 5:42 am

    All politics aside, I honestly feel that all the gun companies along with the ammo manufacturers should all chip in and buy Obama something nice like a watch, or maybe a gold plated AR, (the other dictators seemed to like those) in recognition of the fact that this president has helped sell more “assault weapons” then anyone on their payrolls.

    • DRAINO October 3, 2015, 8:40 am

      ROLFL!!! Wouldn’t that be the ultimate slap in the face to him??…LOL!!! Have the NRA present Obama with a gold plated AR (non-functional of course) for helping sell so many guns…!!?? I would pay money to be there for that just to see his face. C’mon, that would be funny, I don’t care who you are….lol.

    The polititions in this country don’t want change. Guns, drugs, etc. Right now billions of dollars are being earned by different government entities. They thrive on death and chaos and addiction. This is how they drive nice cars, live in mansions. To change would mean to fix. Fix our nation’s drug problems and here comes Barney fife. We wouldn’t need 90% of the law enforcement, court system or prisons. While one law officer busts his ass removing drugs from the streets our government opens the back door and makes millions. Our government doesn’t want change. They have us right where they want us. Half of us addicted and the other half fighting for gun rights. This country is already lost. I always hear “oh if they take my guns I’ll do …” While gun owners cower beneath the government. Watching every step. We shouldn’t have to. They are supposed to cower to us. They are supposed to watch their step. You tell me. Who is Master and who is slave.

      Much as it pains me to admit, I am beginning to think like James. Such a cynical outlook is heartbreaking to me for I was once so proud of the service I gave to my country (`a la USMC). However, knowing then what I know now there is no way I’d do the same in 2015 America. The boldness of our “leaders” seemingly knows no bounds. US citizens have grown so complacent that we simply accept our politicians’ corruption as a given…it’s simply a question of to whom they are beholden rather than who is most qualified. I do, however, believe that certain politicians want guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens. It is a simple matter of the unarmed being easier to control…an ages-old hallmark of tyrants everywhere.

      • James M. October 6, 2015, 5:55 pm

        The sad part is you and I, our fathers and their fathers are responsible. We have all allowed this to happen. It is our duty to hold our leaders accountable. For every evil our government commits we are accountable, in the fact that we stand aside and do nothing. Our founding fathers were real men. They understood the consequences of standing up against tyranny. And they did it anyway. Not just for themselves but for their country. And the future of America. We must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

  • DRAINO October 2, 2015, 3:32 pm

    Only THIS president would stoop so low to politicize this tragic event. But…..Since he already politicized it……..Yet another Gun-free zone strikes again!! If just one person had a weapon in that room, they may have been able to save many if not all of those lives. I wonder if the school will take responsibility for all the poor victims since they denied the students their right of self protection and obviously didn’t provide enough security to keep these people safe…???? Therefore they should be the liable party in any lawsuits. I know that would make sense…which doesn’t happen in todays government. When will they realize that society would be MUCH safer if more law abiding citizens were allowed to carry weapons?

    • Rob Sportsmans October 5, 2015, 11:31 am

      I finally saw a Doctor on one of the major news stations speak of the mass shootings as a mental health issue. He also identified how much news attention the mass murder gets. The more heinous the crime the more attention for the quiet planning mentally disturbed individual gets. We need to provide assistance to the mentally disturbed, not cut funding for them like the state I live in is doing, Connecticut, the state where Sandy Hook resides. Why don’t the suicide statics get more attention since the mass murders are committing suicide after they murder so that they won’t be forgotten.
      Lets address the problem that the CDC actually keeps records on. One statistic that saddens me just as much as the mass murders is about children dying by suicide. Here is something the government can fund and stand behind, save the children that are committing suicide. I have heard the President say something close to, If we can save one child, we are doing the right thing. Lets address the mental health issue: “SAVE uses the most current data available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2013, there were 41,149 deaths by suicide in the United States. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death; homicide ranks 16th. It is the second leading cause of death for 15 – 24 year olds. For more data, you may visit http://www.cdc.gov or http://www.who.int.”
      The people that have committed the mass murders are out for publicity and will commit their deadly rampage in any way possible. They need help to show them that murder and suicide is not a solution. Mental health availability is the solution. If we try to distract the public with accusations that makes the gun manufacture responsible for what a suicidal person plans, we have really missed the real issues. As soon as we try to make the gun manufacturer responsible or say gun control is the solution, then we will see the fertilizer company’s shut down because of what the same suicidal person could do when they misuse their product for what it wasn’t intended for.

        You will NOT see a main stream news source bring attention to the drug problem, their networks derive a lot of their sponsorship money from commercials for Large Pharmaceutical companies. These companies are making billions per year from the dangerous SSRI (Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors). Every mass shooter has been on at least one of them and some on more than one. Still in all this time they have never reported the connection even though there are studies showing this is factual information.

        It is more convenient to blame it all on guns, to hopefully disarm the public and guarantee free license to side step the Constitution at will.

    • Robert K October 5, 2015, 3:14 pm

      You make a great point. However, for the powers that be, the goal is not to make society safer, but to control—period. As Shakespeare said, “therein lies the rub.” The Gov will do whatever it can to garner the support of anti-gunners, purely for the purposes of stripping us of the power to protect ourselves and our own, regardless of what the Second Amendment says. If people were so casual about Freedom of Speech, holy hell would be raised—and rightly so. But the fact that’s conveniently overlooked by many is that if we erode even the slightest bit of any one Right in the US Constitution, then all others are relatively meaningless at best, and potentially worthless at worst. That’s scary, and not a place I think any of us would want to go.
