Gabrielle Giffords shot in Arizona - Sarah Palin 'has blood on her hands'

You really have to take 2 and add it to 2 and make 74 to reach the conclusion drawn by some Leftist extremists that Sarah Palin is to blame for the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (Arizona). Details are still developing, but it is reported that the Democrat congresswoman was shot at point blank range in the head. The assailant fired some 15 or more shots into the crowd, killing others, and this took place at a political gathering where Gabrielle Giffords was speaking to her constituents.

How precisely is Sarah Palin to blame for this?

It turns out that Gabrielle Giffords was also one of the lawmakers Sarah Palin had 'set her sights on'. The congresswoman and others are targeted with simulated gun sights on a map of the United States.

So, you see, Mrs Palin wanted Mrs Gifford dead.


Of course, if these irrational expressions of (hypocritical) leftist hatred and loathing were to result in any attempt on the life of Sarah Palin, their political cause would have been righteous and the Lord's work done.

Only in America.

O, and Pakistan.


Alastair Campbell has not only precipitously declared Representative Giffords dead, but he blames 'the right' for pursuing the 'politics of hate'.

So His Grace apologises: the nutters do not only reside in the US and Pakistan; they functioned in the highest echelons of New Labour.

As I keep saying a good thrashing is long overdue.

armed insurrection must be an inalienable right when faced with treason from within.

Palin is as much a part of the problem though in that the Treason within was a Neo-Con effort as much as a leftist one and many of the powers Obama now abuses were put in place by Bush.

The gunsight poster and political targeting may have nothing whatever to do with this tragedy.
There are several other possibilities. Gabrielle Giffords is Jewish, and pro-choice on abortion for starters. Ironically she supports gun ownership.

A few things in regard to this post:

1-What is the nature of this persons treason? Was the child who was killed a traitor too?

2-I suppose the government has an inalienable right to defend itself too?

A child is dead and yet people are cheering this on. Sums up the modern Human Race really. Knows the price of everything and the value of nothing (including life itself).

How very odd. Sarah Palin hasn't done anything and therefore doesn't need defending.

Are we witnessing propaganda to imbue us with the idea that there is guilt?

This would be nothing new and a sound and often used Fabian approach.

A bit of a mixed bag then.

May I suggest the above reasons very likely had nothing to do with it, and that we will most likely never know the essential reason why she was murdered, or who or what was really motivating the assassin.

It has long been possible to mind control most human being to murder another, for no kind of understandable or logical reason.

This usually using more tried and tested methods such as political or religious indoctrination in the past, but now increasingly using differing forms of hypnosis backed up by reasonably new highly psychologically active drugs. Precisely, but not exclusively what establishment bodies such as The Tavistock Institute were set up to perfect.

I strongly suspect this to be the case in this one, although more verifiable information would be most helpful when coming to a firmer conclusion. Which is the sort of information we are unlikely, to say the least, to receive in any kind of hurry, if at all.

His Grace is perfectly correct in what he says, as he almost always is. However he writes much, and says little as per usual, for very understandable reasons.

Premeditated political or otherwise murders, such as assassinations are not normal, in fact they are extremely rare.

In matters very similar to this one the evidence which always points strongly towards a CONSPIRACY being at play, not either lone gunmen, or other isolated nut-jobs, does not arrive until much, much later.

RENO -- Six girls have been arrested after students were invited on Facebook to take part in "Attack a Teacher Day" at two middle schools.

here is one of the many newspaper links

Interesting quote:
"Even if the six girls meant it as a joke, there's no way to know if the other students who accepted the invitation weren't going to carry out the attacks in some fashion," Rivera said.

So what is the difference between Palin and these 12-13 year old girls? Why were they arrested and Ms Palin was not?

Here we go again,

So now hate is directed at Judaism!!

Whilst I believe abortion is a sin against God and man, so too is murder.

I also believe democracy without a solid Christian foundation is doomed to eventual failure. However, people do have a God given option to exercise free will and to vote for whom they choose.

I also believe my Catholic Faith is that intended by Christ and the Church will be protected until the consumation of time. I do not deprive anyone of their right to choose their own place and means of worship. Again, free will based on, hopefully, an informed conscience.

The exercise of choice, freely undertaken with understanding is one of the underlying process of history. So too is the inevitability of strife and conflict in this world.

Of course, I'd much prefer it if everyone saw the world as I see it! So have many others down through history. Christ's commission to the Apostles is all but completed - the Faith has been spread. Imposition contravens the Will of God.

We're in this together so, at the risk of sounding like an old 'hippie', lets show a little (or even a lot)of LOVE.

For Christians the very essence of God's being.

For supporters of Dawkins, an expression of the 'selfish gene'.

For humanists, mutual regard and care.

For satanists, a heresy!

Having just watched the local (74 years old) head Sheriff hold a press-conference, it would seem that the gunman (there might be more than one) was known to the local authorities as being both a criminal, and having mental-health issues.

The Sherrif himself blamed the rise of ''vitriol and bigotry'' within the United States, and within his own county in particular, as having possibly influenced the perpetrators of the attack.

Dear Mr Eman

I see that you admit to being a Roman Catholic yet you seem to know absolutely nothing whatsoever about the institution to which you have so clearly nailed the destiny of your immortal soul.

You may believe yourself to be a Christian, perhaps you are. However how certain are you that The RCC is also Christian in anything but name?

For all of the evidence I have seen most strongly suggests that the institution of the RCC is very many incredibly powerful things, however being Christian or indeed having anything whatsoever to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, is most surely not one of them. Quite the opposite from what I can tell.

It would seem that what you are a member of is actually a follower of the Anti-Christ, or indeed Satan himself.

I do not wish to offend, however have you actually done any research into the subject of the history both ancient and modern of The RCC, or indeed read your own bible lately, if at all?

It not, then please try my well intentioned advice, do so ASAP. You may have more to lose then you would wish to.

Myself on the other hand, have no faith in anything other then the truth, wherever that may be. I will believe in Christ, when The Word of God actually turns up on his white horse, and not before.

Until that time I just carry on doing good where ever and whenever I can, and keep my fingers crossed that if our saviour turns up he will not be too angry with me.

For it would seem that the way things are going a saviour we are most certainly going to very much need, this especially when so much profoundly blinkered ignorance, very like your own, is so incredibly common to find. Which means it would seem that we are incapable of helping ourselves as a whole.

As a half Anglican half Jew I do not hate anyone especially ordinary people, who are often just sheep like fools badly lead to their premature slaughter. If we are not very careful indeed a slaughter of quite biblical proportions may shortly visit this abode.

You have been warned, yet you seem to mostly be content to ignore the warning. So be it, just don't say you were not warned.

As for ACO

The man is an utter fool, in the worse possible sense. I have come across self confessed atheists like him before, and am totally confounded by their happy ignorance in genuinely believing that everyone else who is not also an atheist, is somehow ESN or worse.

They do this without bothering to find out anything whatsoever about that which they seek to undermine.

All you get with these types is straw man arguments and pointless insults. It is not the insults that bother me, but the pointlessness of them.

They say that religion is bad, yet do not bother to work out why it has historically been incredibly so. This especially when Christianity itself for example is based on The Word of Jesus Christ, which is, to cut a long story short, simply LOVE, as most normal people would understand the word.

IMO the answer is reasonably simple. It is not religion in itself or the religious themselves that are either ignorant or evil.

What is very possibly the most evil thing ever to have inhabited the entire world is a religion subverted by evil, for evil ends.

For there exists not an 'ism' that was not fathered by The Holy Father, and then nurtured by The Mother Church. Indeed if you think about it, how could extremely nasty things such as international terrorism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism or corporate global capitalism have ever got started never mind flourished, without the power of the RCC well and truly behind them ALL?

Left-wing progressive?

Update from MSNBC:

A 22-year-old woman in Arizona, Caitie Parker, claimed on her Twitter feed that she went to high school and college with the gunman, and was in a band with him. She described his politics in the past as “left wing, quite liberal, & oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy.” She also described him as having a lot of friends “until he got alcohol poisoning in ’06″ and dropped out of school. “Mainly loner very philosophical.”

Parker described the gunman meeting Rep. Gabrielle Giffords previously: “He was a political radical & met Giffords once before in ’07, asked her a question & he told me she was ‘stupid & unintelligent.’”

That MSNBC link has transcripts of his videos, in which he professes having no belief in God, and no trust in God.

Hi Atlas shrugged - Any excuse to avoid the obvious. Ask yourself this, why is the following article pertinent and why should that worry you?

You wouldn’t know from the celebrations of Charles Darwin’s life this year that the amiable Victorian gent portrayed in those TV drama-docs pottering around the garden of his home in Kent has been fingered as a racist, an apologist for genocide, and the inspiration of a string of psychopathic killers.
As the attorney for the families of six of the students killed at Columbine, the Denver lawyer Barry Arrington has come across more in a similar vein. “I read through every single page of Eric Harris’s journals; I listened to all of the audio tapes and watched the videotapes… It became evident to me that Harris consciously saw his actions as logically arising from what he had learnt about evolution. Darwinism served as his personal intellectual rationale for what he did. There cannot be the slightest doubt that Harris was a worshipper of Darwin and saw himself as acting on Darwinian principles.”

In 2007, detectives following up a tip-off about a planned school shooting in Pennsylvania discovered that their suspect often logged on to a social networking site called Natural Selection’s Army and a number of related chatrooms that were later tagged by the media as the “cyber school for killers”. These sites were quickly shut down by their service providers, but today “Natural Selection” is the name of a popular computer game in which competing teams attempt to annihilate one another — a sign that Darwin’s term is still associated by many teenagers with sudden and extreme violence.

Get the obvious stuff out of the way first.
Of course this an absolute shocking tragedy.
And we should wait and see what the killers motives were before drawing conclusions.
And the only person who is most responsible for this tragedy is the killer.
And that they should be punished by the law in the harshest way possible.

And now to the point, coming from someone on the right of politics, will the UK right leaning blogosphere shut the ---- up in defending the US right's use of inflammatory rhetoric which may well turn out to have played a part in motivating this guy? People in public positions do bear a responsibility for what they say, a moral one if not always a legal one. Right commentators in the US who do know better are playing their part in stoking people's fears for the future of their country. They're deliberately scaring people, who when with access to firearms become much more dangerous than what they are told to be afraid of.

And if it does turn out that someone like Beck or Palin motivated this guy then shame on them too, nothing more. I'm not a liberal fascist for saying this, I'm not advocating any kind of punishment for them. But shame on them.

Let's hope that something can come out of this terrible tragedy, like a move to more mature, responsible politics in the US. The immediate response of people such as Cranmer (who in the past I have enjoyed) and Delingpole (whose Coward books I am a fan of) makes me wonder.

Angry rhetoric is a symptom of an abusive government and administration which has trampled upon the rights of its citizens and shoved bills, bailouts and stimulus bills down the throats of its citizenry. The problem is an abusive government, not angry rhetotic. The angry rhetoric will stop when the abuse stops. Politicans should be calling for the abuse to stop and calling for our politicans to represent the will of its contituents in Washington instead of their own interests, they should be calling on politicans to stop bankrupting our country and forcing bills down the throats of the people. If they clean up Washington, they will find the symptom of angry rhetoric disappear. Instead they will play politics with this tragedy and use it to try to silence the will of the people and to stop them from attending town hall meetings, rallies etc to voice their oppostion to the progressive left agenda.

All this blaming of political styles and manners of expression seem rather strange, almost a form of opportunism.The shooter made several Youtube video's (which you can find and watch with a little searching)and it is abundantly clear that he was mentally ill, deluded, grandiose.....mad as a sack of cats to put it simply.(He does mention being the "master of all religions") And thats it really, paranoid schizophrenic gets gun and shoots people. Horribly, horribly tragic for the victims and their families. But nothing to do with Palin, politics or anything else really: just like that taxi driver that shot complete strangers in Cumbria a short while ago. A nutcase, with a gun.

Angry rhetoric Sir, (I assume you are male from your testosterone tone), is not a symptom of what you claim.

Rather, it is a symptom of a deep and longstanding disrespect in your nation for those charged with running your countries. Decent, hard working people for the most part, dedicated to service of 'citizens'. And also of the deep rooted divisions still in your land.

I much prefer the term people - not quite as suggestive of the French Republic. 'Citizen' implies a one way street - all taking and on giving; 'consumers' of services; demanders of 'standards' etc. etc.

In those great words:

"Do not ask what your country can do for you, rather ask what you can do for your country."

For a start why not contribute constructively instead of hurling abuse?

Do not allow the corrupt few amongst your representatives to corrupt your respect for the institutions of your democracy.

Sarah Palin may not be directly to responsible - but - she did NOT help!
For an aspiring leader she has a lot to learn.

Is it strange that you tend to blame the other side? Democrats are blaming Republicans. Republicans are saying the guy was a 'left wingnut'.

What is important is the impact of the response. I doubt that it will allow us additional access to our representatives. We are already in trouble with communication with our leadership in this country. The forcing of the health care law through the system when the US public was saying "NO!" was a very negative predecessor.

Well friends, although not all of you have been kind to me :o(, it's time I bid you a fond farewell.

Take care all of you and do try to lighten up ;o). Live's good and God wants us to enjoy ourselves. Kick the old enemy out with joy - not so much seriousness. Laughter and happiness is something he hates.

God loves us all, warts and all, and He wants us to love each other - Jew, Muslim, Catholic, Anglican, Protestant, man, woman, black, white, whatever label we attach to each other.

We're all brothers and sisters in Christ. Laugh, enjoy, LOVE, be happy. Worship Him, thank Him and Love each other; that's what He wants.

Apologies if I've offended anyone. Some of you have been pretty nasty to me and Mr.Eman. We're sensitive souls. Sometimes I get hacked off. You know what people can be like! No harm meant. Let's kiss and make-up.

Love you all - including 'Atlas shrug', 'KINGOFHIGHCR' and 'len', oh, not forgetting 'Preacher' and 'Oswin'. Don't be sooo nasty.

Special wishes to srizals (hope I spelt it right).

Behave all of you.

God Bless.

You never know we might just meet again. Fingers crossed, as they say.

Yours, Mr.Eman et al.

"The King's servant but God's first"

Well, you know what they say when you assume. Your comment is laughable. The people charged with running our country are sadly not doing it anymore for public service. The majority are doing it for power, control, and for their own self-interests lining their own pockets, receiving all kinds of perks and favorable business dealings. Most come into "service" perhaps as a regular person and leave as multi millionaires with a lifetime of bennies and great healthcare (they exempted themselves of course from having to participate in Obamacare). No it isn't about service anymore, it is about power and wealth at the expense of our country. We the people have a responsibility to hold our elected officials accountable and to speak up when they are abusing their power. Americans are doing their duty by speaking up. If some think of that as angry rhetoric that should be stopped then they need to re-evaluate what is causing all the anger.

We need honest politicans who go to Washington to represent the interests of their constituents and not themselves. We need politicans who want to see our country succeed and not bankrupt it leaving all the debt to our children and grandchildren. Please spare me your drivel and Kennedy quotes.

Speech is certainly free, but not free from responsibility. Sarah Palin is unwise to mix pro-gun policies and a populist message with this sort of rhetoric and imagery. The US of A has its share of tinfoil hat loonies who seek to bear arms at the slightest provocation and there are enough dead presidents and others to provide evidence for this. And speaking of tinfoil hat loonies, no surprise Mr Campbell has spouted forth about The Right....the same Right he lied the UK into war on behalf of....

Charles Darwin and the children of the evolution

The naturalist outraged the church, prompting a bitter debate that still sets creationists against evolutionists. Now a sinister link has emerged between his work and the recent spate of high-school killings by crazed, nihilistic teenagers

Dennis Sewell


As the attorney for the families of six of the students killed at Columbine, the Denver lawyer Barry Arrington has come across more in a similar vein. “I read through every single page of Eric Harris’s journals; I listened to all of the audio tapes and watched the videotapes… It became evident to me that Harris consciously saw his actions as logically arising from what he had learnt about evolution. Darwinism served as his personal intellectual rationale for what he did. There cannot be the slightest doubt that Harris was a worshipper of Darwin and saw himself as acting on Darwinian principles.”

Mid-1800, the false scientific justification to deny God as Creator started with a man named Charles Darwin. Darwin’s theory of evolution divided humans into superior and inferior status.
Where has this lead us?,

Hitler`s aim was to preserve the 'pure Aryan ' race and to remove the 'inferior' races. This lead to the death camps.

Marx was an admirer of Hitler and described Marxism and Socialism as interchangeable.The upper echelons of the Marxist/Socialist' elites 'control the inferior masses.

The Godless E U will(is) being run by a small 'elite' who will decide what you think, what your morals are,and what you can say.
In a Godless World who decides what is right and what is wrong?
Without God`s Law there are no absolutes and anything can become permissible if enough people agree to it!.

I blame it on my late brother's boss, Jimmy Carter, and his successors who demanded that the fool farms be emptied into the streets. And I blame it on the phases of the moon, longitude and latitude, and fast food.

No, I blame it on the shooter who knew, like most shooters, that if they act preposterously enough, that folks will blame everyone but them.

It is too convenient for pols and professors and other whining nits to pretend that they are societal philosophers who place the blame without placing the responsibilities.

A pox on them all.
