Good Grief.  If somebody does not stop this left wing hatred…..

Sheriff Duprik to the rescue?

Yesterday, this Eric Fuller had become another media star, blaming Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and Sharron Angle for the Tucson shooting.  This morning he is arrested for making death threats at a so-called town meeting held by Christiane Amanpour, ABC News.  Fuller is threatening a republican participant, and a tea party person.  He held up a picture of one of them after writing “You’re Dead” on it.  He is a survivor of the massacre, though with minor wounds.  What a way to show your thankfulness for escaping death.

This is supposed to air tomorrow morning, I think, on ABC.  Do you think they will CUT this part?  They might leave it in if they can figure out a way to make it look like he is a Tea Party person.

Here’s the report:

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) -The meeting room at St. Odilia’s Catholic Church on the city’s northwest side was packed with local dignitaries, witnesses to the mass shooting Jan. 8, some of the witnesses to the shootings and the first responders to the scene for a taping of an ABC-TV special, a town hall event, at 11 a.m. Saturday. Host of the program, This Week, is Christiane Amanpour. The show will air at 7 a.m. Sunday on KGUN9-TV.

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head at close range last Saturday by a lone gunman. She survived. A total of six people were killed. Nineteen were shot.

Jared Loughner, 22, a former Pima Community College student, is the sole suspect in the shootings. He is in FBI custody.

Toward the end of the town hall meeting Saturday morning, one of the shooting victims, J. Eric Fuller, took exception to comments by two of the speakers: Ariz. state Rep. Terri Proud, a Dist. 26 Republican, and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.

According to sheriff’s deputies at the scene, Fuller took a photo of Humphries and said, “You’re Dead.”

Deputies immediately escorted Fuller from the room.

Pima County Sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ogan said later Saturday that Fuller has been charged with threats and intimidation and he also will be charged with disorderly conduct.

Among the dignitaries at the town hall taping were Mayor Bob Walkup, U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva and former Congressman Jim Kolbe.

ABC News dubbed the town hall, “After the Tragedy:  An American Conversation Continued.”

A press release stated that the event will restart the conversation that Giffords began.  “Among those who will join the Town Hall: family members of victims, citizens who took heroic action and community leaders,” the press release stated.

A KGUN9 News crew was at the town hall. KGUN9 will air a report on KGUN9 News Saturday at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Saturday’s  10 p.m. newscast will be a one hour 9 On Your Side special report entitled, “One Week Later.”

Here’s an eye witness account:

Trent Humphries, the Pima County tea party leader, stood up to speak during the event. He was being very respectful. Trent told the audience that before we start placing blame on individuals we need to get all the facts. Trent then told everyone that one of those killed during the shooting was his neighbor and that he was affected like everyone else by the tragedy… While Trent was speaking- And it was planned that he would speak- One member in the audience and reportedly one of the victims of the tragedy started screaming, “Trent Humphries you’re dead!” The police immediately escorted him out. On his way out he screamed, “You’re all whores.”

New: Quinnipiac poll shows only 15% think heated rhetoric related to Arizona massacre

Almost a full week after Saturday’s shooting in Arizona, a new poll suggests that very few Americans associate the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to increased “heated political rhetoric,” despite an ongoing campaign to pin blame on conservative groups.

Just 15 percent of those surveyed in the national poll said they thought “rhetoric” was to blame for the shooting, according to a Quinnipiac University study released Friday.

“Americans seem to be rejecting the blame game for the Arizona shooting.”

Sit together? Never!

In symbol of unity Sen. Mark Udall (D) is calling on members of Congress to all sit together for the State of the Union Address, set for January 25th.

Sit together?  SIT TOGETHER?

I am going to post a video of Ed Schultz, MSNBC, with the usual “vitriol” in his voice blasting and slamming republican congressmen for statements they made on gun control laws.  In another video, he is interviewing the HERO, Joe Zamudio, who took down the shooter in what in my opinion is a condescending manner.  In another video he is interviewing Dennis Kucinich. trying to demean and criticize republicans in general and in specific, House Speaker Boehner.  Mr. Kucinich, a democrat, even challenged him on it.

MSNBC is biased beyond belief, I don’t see that it has changed in tone or vitriol  since the shooting.

But SIT TOGETHER?  Should they hold hands, too?  Sing little songs and play pat-a-cake together?

We’re talking about running a government here, not trying to create a situation where it is not obvious just how FEW democrats there are in the House after the shallacking in November.  It is so easy to see what their motivation is.

So, I hear there are some republicans who are going along with this ridiculous suggestion.  I’m going to try to find out who they are and make a list.

Well, here’s two: .Kevin McCarthy, Republican, California, and Lisa Murkowski, Republican, Alaska (no surprise there).  Aaaaw, and McCarthy wants to sit next to Steny Hoyer.  1,2,3 sing:  Like a bridge over troubled waters…..

More:  Susan Collins, R, and Olympia Snowe, R.  (What a surprise that is! sarc)

And: Kelly Ayotte, R and I believe she was endorsed by Sarah Palin.

These are all senators.  There are none so far in the House to sign on.

Another one: John McCain, Republican, Arizona. (no surprise there either).

Have they gone mad?  NOW the democrats and the president want us all to be civil and everybody to “get along.”   They have not in any way set up an atmosphere to get along.

One thing is for sure, if you want everybody to be happy and nice and get along, you can start the conversation by saying you republicans, you tea party people, all you out there who disagree with us, you all had something to do with this murder in Tucson.  That’ll promote civility and dialogue every single time. It would be funny if it were not so serious.

This is Ed Schultz on Thursday, January 13th, demeaning Mr. Zamudio, a Hero who helped hold the shooter and likely prevented more deaths:

This is the full interview below. This interview was on January 10th.  So you can see what they did was cut the desired pieces to do the above video where Schultz dumped on the hero to make his point, knowing full well what he was doing.   Go to about 5:20 to hear the end of the interview – the part that was CUT OFF because Mr. Zamudio gave his opinion on gun control and it did not fit Mr. Schultz’ narrative and agenda.  This is a really good illustration of media malpractice and why they have no credibility whatsoever.


Here he is again “setting a good tone” blasting Palin and republicans.  Even Dennis Kucinich (D) about 5:23 takes Schultz to task for his comments.


All this MSNBC stuff is long and hard to listen to, but it shows exactly what they do.  It’s worth a listen for anyone who wants proof of the media bias and glaring hypocrisy.

The rumor mill known as the mainstream media is over…..

A commenter at the Washington Post:   “The mainstream media will never again be able to create a narrative that is contrary to the facts. Their day, for the most part, is over. The internet and talk radio, among other things, serve as a kind of modern day Paul Revere sounding the alarm whenever we are fed a load of BS and act as a necessary corrective.”

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 28% of Adults say the shooting in Arizona was the result of political anger in the country.

Red Eye: Keeping it civil

Pat Caddell, former Carter pollster:

“[T]he point is – you know, this thing started – I have to say, when I look at [Paul] Krugman and Jonathan Alter, with his advice and the president, ‘Don’t let this go to waste – let’s make it like Oklahoma City,’ and Krugman who is just a flat-out asshole, I’m sorry – these people what they did…”

Caddell indicated their initial response should have been different.

“People are dead and the first thing you have to do is go to politics, I mean no wonder the country hates the media and hates the politicians,” he said.

Later in the show during the “Halftime Report” segment, “Red Eye” ombudsman Andy Levy had this exchange with Caddell:

LEVY: Pat, you called Krugman a real “a-hole.” New tone please, new tone? We’re operating under a new tone.

CADDELL: I’m sorry, but the guy is outrageous. He’s the most disingenuous human being I know. And not only that, he’s not even a real economist.

LEVY: I agree with you, but what you need to say is that, “Krugman is an opening at the opposite end of his digestive tract from his mouth, the function of which is to control the expulsion of feces.

This Arizona incident is really revealing who the a-holes are.

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: I will catch the wise in their own craftiness.
