Obama Supporters Shout “FOUR MORE YEARS” Following Colorado Shooting Announcement

Very odd behavior from a group of Obama supporters as the president gives some brief remarks following the multiple deaths shooting during a midnight screening of the new Batman movie – people are seeng smiling and laughing in the background, and then break out into a cheering chant of “four more years” despite Barack Obama’s statement that today was not a time for politics:

    • Meh. Hardly what the headline promised. You went a fridge too far on this one, UM. But I would like to answer the Prez’s rhetorical question; what would have happened if Sasha and Malia were in the audience? Their Secret Service detail would have blown this dip to bits in about .4 seconds.

    • InTheKnow
    • This shooting incident feels very wrong. “4 more years,” gun control people rallying and so on and so forth.

      Publius — Great comment on the last thread. Your advice on what people should do was a lot better than mine the other day. Thanks.

      M. Simon — Keep up the great work. Sorry didn’t have a chance to respond to you in the other thread.

      Thanks for posting this, Ulsterman.

      If you haven’t read it yet, the new DHS Insider link from Canada Free Press was posted in the comments of the last thread. What that person is saying ties in with what WSI and MI have said.

      • This morning, I saw the following posted to another website:

        “Occupy Black Bloc supporter James Holmes, DOB 12/13/1987″

        It was just thrown out there with no comment, as if some cop somewhere harvested it off the police computer and couldn’t reveal the source.

        “Occupy” rings a bell doesn’t it? And we know who all supported and encouraged the “occupy” events. Don’t we?

        So….how can this be promulgated?

        • werbaz neutronName
        • If one does a Google search “Occupy Black Bloc” there is a lot – at least a few minutes ago – about Holmes association with the group, about his pro Obama stance, His former membership in Occupy San Diego but leaving because it was not radical enough.

          • InTheKnow
          • Thanks, werbaz. I need to look into this information further. Saying something isn’t radical enough reminds of the comments on Leo Gerard saying that the Occupy protests should be more militant.

            Also, there are interesting links, in the past, between San Diego and supposed mind control facilities, I believe. I’m not sure where the alleged shooter is from, but if he is from California, that could be red flag.

            There were a lot of questions around Gabby Giffords shooter Jared Loughner. Concerns about possible ‘programming’ of Loughner and so forth. It will be interesting to find out more about this Batman shooter, too.

            • InTheKnow
            • Thanks, Publius.

              I’m not trying to get too far ‘into the woods’ here, with talk of mind control and such stuff. This Batman shooter may be just some jaded young man who managed to become what he is all by himself.

              With who and what we’re dealing with, though, I would rather have all bases covered than leave stones unturned. There are a lot of things going on that most people don’t know about, and part of how these matters are protected is by them seeming non-believable.

              Many people here have likely heard of Project Artichoke, Project MK-ULTRA and Project MONARCH. These were/are supposed mind control programs (or programs which are said to have involve(d) mind control elements) allegedly run by the US government. I think supposedly through the CIA, but I’m not sure. I would tell people to do the research for themselves so that they understand just how serious these supposed projects were. These projects are the basis of the “Manchurian Candidate” concept, at least in the United States.

              I am nearly certain that at least one, and I think several, of the purported mind control training centers, if you will, are supposed to have existed/exist in California. My recollection is that a number of such supposed centers are allegedly related to military facilities. I seem to recall one such supposed facility being in or near San Diego.

              I have read all of this information. Is all of it legitimate? Probably not. As I mentioned in the other thread, there is much intentional misinformation and disinformation put out to trap the unsuspecting researcher and have them embrace a “crazy” theory that would then discredit that researcher and the rest of the legitimate information they have found.

              WSI, and I think also WHI, have talked about Obama as a Manchurian Candidate. Such persons do exist. Was the Batman shooter such a person? I have no idea.

              But when so much is at stake, all possibilities must be considered, I feel. Especially when I hear “4 more years” at a presidential speech about the shootings and see the anti-gun lobby crowd so eager to pounce.

      • M. Simon
      • Thanks! The core of their money machine is the Drug War. And the enemy is the bankers. I just learned that (I had an inkling) by watching ” Mike Ruppert – the CIA and Drugs “. Since the economy is already crashed taking out the Drug money machine will not cost as much as it would with an “intact” economy.

        Also look up – Catherine Austin Fitts Narco News – for further corroboration.

        • InTheKnow
        • You’re welcome. Keep up the great work!

          I agree with you on who is behind the drug trade and who is facilitating the drug trade. I believe Lame Cherry has written a good amount about that subject, and there are other resources out there on the issue as well.

          Thanks for the heads up on those two sources. I need to go through them.

    • Redwine
    • He stated that this “was not a time for politics”. Oh, but it is. It’s all about his campaign. It’s especially all about gun control. His groupie, idiot Bloomberg, and others are already calling for gun control. It should be about expanding the rights for both open and concealed carry. If people had guns with them, this tragedy probably wouldn’t have happened. Something like this would probably never happen in Texas.

    • Kat
    • I am so sick and tired of Obama putting himself right into the middle of every tragedy that happens. Treyvon Martin could have been his son. His daughters “go to the movies”. OH BROTHER!!!! If the Obamas were at the movies the whole place would be screened beforehand. Every single person checked. Every exit secured. And then there would be Secret Service all over the place in case even a whiff of trouble presented itself. This guy is such a joke. He couldn’t just say he was praying for the people and their loss. No. Obama has to try and be a part of the tragedy himself. He is a schmuck. And his supporter whooping it up after they get the news is just plain weird.

      • werbaz neutronName
      • People like this shooter would have guns regardless of the law and all know that. Just like gang members.

        Above that, what about the explosives alleged at his apartment? I understand this possible Occupier guy (Occupy Black Bloc supporter James Holmes, DOB 12/13/1987) may have also wired – with explosives – the medical school building where he was previously a student….police have evacuated that I understand now.

        People with connections need to get on this.

        • werbaz neutronName
        • we all know police react to events with a time lag. They can never protect us, it is our personal responsibility to protect ourselves.

          Recalling the long ago Killeen shooting at Luby’s cafeteria (an event that brought forth the Texas conceal carry law), someone observed, then, that if the shooter had tried that in a Texas barbeque joint, he would have – maybe – got off one shot.

          If people on base at Ft. Hood had been allowed guns, do we think that crazed muslim officer would have killed all those people there?

          We don’t want police that are pro-active…..trying to prevent crimes before they happen. We all ready have too much of that all ready with TSA outfits. More of that – as Obama and Nippletaneo want – will do nothing but further erode our way of life. And pro-active gun control laws we don’t want for the same reason….besides, the people that still want guns will get them, the law just raises the price. Research shows that the death penalty for any action only raises its market price about ten percent.

          But this is all logic and experience and philosophy: anathema to liberals.

        • http://www.westernjournalism.com/was-colorado-shooting-staged-by-the-government/

          Justa saying this is analysis makes a lot of sense. How DOES a neuroscience student who is dropping out of school AFFORD the rounds of ammo let alone all the expensive gear, access to explosives, complex set up of his apartment, desire to let on that he has, Iin fact, boobytrapped his apartment… Well, read the link.

          Deluxe Fast and Furious, anyone?

          You only have to watch Rep. Gomert quiz Big Sis about her knowledge of what she knew about the Muslim who copied classified info and leaked them to know how corrupt DHS and the others who are supposed to be our paid protectors…. And if we complain about it? Well, hello IRS!

    • lovelypeace
    • Remember CO is where Obama accepted the nomination. Remember what WHI said about the weird happenings before the Obama acceptance speech?

      It seems like there might be a spiritual connection for the Obama Camp because a lot of evil has gone down in that area of the country in recent years. These things don’t just happen.

      I know that a lot of people might not want to go down that road,but I don’t think any of this happened by accident either.

      Remember how ABC was just too quick to blame it on a Tea Party guy (yawn!) because that fit the package/story line they hoped was true.

      Obama’s team is just way too predictable and we know enough to know this was about changing the topic.

      • bill o'rights
      • I was thinking Aurora was chosen, since it’s one town over from Littleton. You know, remind everyone of Columbine, exactly one week before the final draft for the U.N. weapons ban treaty is completed.

        Just a bit of a coincidence, huh?

          • lovelypeace
          • The thing that just makes me go “wow” is how much of this incident is just a mind game.

            Yesterday, I was reading a passage about meditation and how the best times to meditate were 1st thing in the morning and last thing at night because you aren’t functioning on a fully conscious level yet. So, you have the ability “reprogram” your subconscious…….

            The whole thing clicked for me when I remembered how I was flipping through the stations and saw the images and figured out what was going on.

            So some person in random place America, turns on the TV, half-tired from the night before and news like this (that makes you afraid, go into a fight-or-flight response) gets imprinted on your mind. And the mind doesn’t know the difference between something that happened in reality and something on television…..

            Needless to say, I was angry when I made the connection. Because even while CNN headline news had a guy on talking about how people really shouldn’t fear this sort of thing because it really is rare – the station was still running the pictures of the emergency vehicles and people running/reacting to the news.

            People aren’t going to remember the words, but they’ll remember the images. Ugh. (I just really hate when I put two and two together and get an ugly picture).

            • bill o'rights
            • I’m a skeptical creature, by nature.

              It has taken me a long, long time to arrive where I am now, with regard to believing much of what we talk about here. I write software code and live in a world of logic. If something looks like a duck and walks like a duck, it’s probably a damn duck…Occam’s Razor, if you will.

              On the other hand, I deal with the non-existent, and it’s my job to figure out how to create software that solves problems that haven’t yet been solved.

              But, with regard to this shooting in Colorado, we all knew what was coming up and we all sensed something. We STILL sense something, and it’s much bigger than this shooting…so much so, in fact, that many of us were not terrificly surprised when the shooting took place. Might I add that the Reichstag fire is still an unsolved mystery, but who, now, doubts that it was the Brownshirts who lit the match?

              Coupled with what we already know about these people, and the timing (precisely one week prior to the final drafting of the U.N. weapons ban), very suspicious means good possibility of having been scripted.

    • Obeline
    • Nagging question: Why didn’t DHS catch this before it happened?

      With all the snooping,drones, and high tech privacy invasion, how did this get by Ms. Janet?

      Something doesn’t add up.

    • CeeJay
    • When I heard about this shooting, I just knew that Lame Cherry would immediately weigh in her own unique way. She didn’t let me down.

      Some have remarked that she is very hard to read/understand and I concur completely. It took me some months to understand her (I am 99% sure she IS female). But, in my estimation, it was well worth the effort. I have learned more from her than I have from any other blog (except maybe this one).

      And, after reading what she had to say about the Colorado shootings, I realized why! Most of her blog posts pull together many things going on in the US and world and she incorporate them (i.e. connect the dots) into her post.

      Take the time to read this one: “Nice Colorado Guns Huma” and I think you will agree w/me.

      In this one she begs Mayor Bloomberg “To Do Something…”.

      “Mayor Bloomberg, when are you, Barack Hussein Obama and John McCain going to do something about these Muslim Brotherhood militant Islamists who are endangering America like the whacked out college age Obama voter who shot up a Colorado theater?

      This is the most relevant of questions Mr. Bloomberg as individuals outed by Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and other Republicans, in Huma Wiender, wife of Democrat Anthony Wiener forced out of office on perverted sex charges, and Department of State aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, are not these terrorists, Mr. Bloomberg, who you are allowing to run free in camps in New York and coddling across America, a clear danger to Barry Chin AKA Barack Hussein Obama Osseiran, in their intimate contact with him?”

    • Anytime the corrupt media creates a 24/7 hollywood style promotion, you know it’s a staged event. It would be nice to believe no one died, but knowing these people, it’s unlikely.

      Where was the coverage a couple months ago when those Chicago youth went on a weekend shooting spree that left dozens dead, including children? Right—there was no coverage.

      This Batman shooting is totally staged.

    • When the Left says it’s not the time for politics, you can be sure there are details that hurt their side badly.

      Good find with the Occupy Movement connection. The Left created this guy.

      • bill o'rights
      • Maybe someone should tell Hillary and those U.N. morons that the only people who should be prevented from owning firearms are the irresponsible Libtard crazies who try so hard to make the rest of us look bad.

        • werbaz neutronName
        • I believe the Muslim Brotherhood, presently smiled upon by Hilary (and her advisorette) and the Obama State Department, agree with the U.N. philosophy, which implicitly recognizes that the Muslim Brotherhood will be left with their WMD, as well as their lower level weapons.

      • M. Simon
      • EAB you might find this instructive:

        Read the following three part Narco News series by Catherine Austin Fitts linked here:

        Links here: http://classicalvalues.com/2011/11/why-we-must-not-end-prohibition/

        She corroborates Mike Ruppert – The CIA and Drug Running.

        Now Mike didn’t have the information we have today. Today we know that a very large percentage of drug use is self medication. And given our still primitive stage of knowledge maybe all of it. Which is why drug demand is so inelastic.

    • bill o'rights



      WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!



      Batman informs Catwoman not to use guns…later Catwoman saves Batman’s life with a gun and says she apparently doesn’t share the same view concerning guns.

      In the story, Bain holds Gotham City hostage with a thermonuclear bomb…the people of Gotham all agree that the military won’t save them, they must act to save themselves.

      Bain gives this long soliloquy, about attacking the wealthy and enjoying the spoils, while we watch scenes of innocent people being stripped of their wealth.

      The symbolism goes on and on, including tattered American flags, Batman using an EMP device to disarm Bain’s men, and even Bain’s use of stock market tomfoolery in order to bankrupt Wayne Enterprises through the use of derivatives.

      My jaw is still dropping. I feel like I’m in shock.

      • M. Simon
      • In our case the thermonuclear bomb is economic destruction. Have a look at the links I have left around this thread. The economic crash has stripped innocents of their assets. But it is the only way to strip the bankers of their power and end the Drug War which the bankers use to maintain their power. In 1999 Mike Rupert nailed it in a video – The CIA and Drug Running. About 1:17 into the video he nails it. In 1999.

        Catherine Austin Fitts also corroborates his premise. Look at her three part series in Narco News.

    • Inside the criminal mind..Psychology today..comparing narcissist and antisocial..by Stanton Samenow Phd..


      “The narcissist, for example, “is uncomfortable in situations in which he or she is not the center of attention.” The same is true of the antisocial person. The narcissist evidences “self-dramatization.”
      People who are antisocial can also be quite dramatic. In fact, some count on drama to distract others from their real intentions. And some appear dramatic as they play out their perception that they are the center of the universe around which all else should revolve.”

      “because the narcissist appears to be law-abiding, others may not be suspicious of him leaving him freer to pursue his objectives, no matter at whose expense. I have found that the main difference between the narcissist and antisocial individual, in most instances, is that the former has been shrewd or slick enough not to get caught for breaking the law.”

      Robust agenda of change
      Soetoro’s 2012 election contingency
      Author – Doug Hagmann Friday, July 20, 2012

      This article addresses~~

      Who’s in the White House

      What;s the agenda

      The Plan

      Disturbances Disturbances

      I asked if the plans could be disrupted, changed or if anything posed a valid threat to the agenda.

      My source responded: “The Arpaio investigation hit on something critical. I don’t know what it is, and maybe they’re holding something back, whatever happened in the last 2 or 3 months really upset things, got some people scrambling. The White House, and again, Jarrett, ordered ‘Justice’ to turn up the heat against Sheriff Arpaio.”

      “It’s interesting how the media has laid down and not reported on this investigation. There have been threats made, and not so subtle ones, either.”

      “Also, ‘Fast and Furious’ is huge and leads right to the White House and ‘State,’ but according to my sources, won’t be an issue because the politicians in charge of the investigations have been compromised and threatened. Napolitano knows everything about Fast and Furious and is working with Holder to impede the investigations. She’s using her political clout. But damage control had taken time and a toll,” added my source.

      In the end, though, I don’t think there’s enough to stop a second term. And should there be any hint of it, well, I told you, there are contingency plans for 2012.

    • How did a broke unemployed student afford body armor, composite helmet, gas mask, gas grenades, AR-15, handguns etc? AND all the bombs in his apartment? We are talking at least $10,000 in gear. And he just propped open a fire door without the alarm going off. All the while Bloomberg’s former head of intel is chief of police. Come on, this isn’t even half way believable! The whole thing is staged.

    • Name Nancy
    • Brian Ross must have had as his instruction as a journalism student a course in Goebbbel’s Principles of Propaganda “Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.”

      Brian Ross should go around to the people that his broadcast reached & attempt to dissuade them that the Tea Party was NOT in any way involved in that horrible incident in Colorado. Additionally, the Tea Party was charged by the media elites as being responsible for Gabby Gifford’s shooting.
      Brian Ross should be suspended from his job for his disgraceful, unprofessional and unethical behavior.After all, ABC is using our airwaves FOR FREE to make a fortune, & pay Brian Ross’ exorbitant salary – making him an elite & worthy to rule us all.

      BTW, ATT doesn’t include Fox News in its basic package, at least in a gated community in Boca Raton. The homeowner has to pay $20 more to get Fox News. How do you like that for censorship?

      • silverdust
      • Re FOX News, you aren’t missing anything. They’ve gone over to the dark side as well. Better to cancel all TV cable charges and buy yourself a ROKU and plug it into the back of your TV. It will ping off your internet cable and pick up GBTV as well as stream movies and shows YOU select. A subscription to Beck is only $5 or $10 a month and worth 10 times more.

    • Just wondering about this after the Colorado incident..thank you Charlotte..

      The POTUS orders flags at half staff until July 25..The UN Arms Treaty due to be ratified signed in NYC on July 27th..heaven forbid..it would take away our Second Amendment rights..connecting any dots??


      “On July 27th, the nations of the world are scheduled to meet in New York to sign a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Disguised as a way to prevent the proliferation of small arms throughout the world, it is, in fact, a backdoor way to legislate gun control in the United States and effectively repeal our Second Amendment.

      The ATT will set up a global body which will require all nations to regulate firearms so that they can prevent their exportation to other countries. Inevitably, this will require countries to inventory the guns in private hands and to register them. A gun ban is not far away.

      The ATT, under the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution, would have the power of a constitutional amendment and would, effectively, repeal the Second Amendment guaranteeing us the right to bear arms. We must fight to stop the US from signing the treaty and, if we fail, block Senate ratification.”

    • Consider this -there might be a relationship between Obama and the gunman. One of the comments made by the investigator was that he was despondent because he couldn’t fond a job in his career fields and was working at McDonalds.

      Thus, Obama’s economy was a factor that contributed to his actions!

      • west1890
      • “Curiouser and curiouser” to quote the White Rabbit…….Read on Drudge yesterday that Holmes was collecting unemployment. If that’s the case then we, the people, financially supported his acquisition of weapons and gear. Using Leftie logic one could say guns are not the problem…unemployment checks are the problem. In any case, both Sharpton and Jackson have come out swinging and pushing for gun control. In the interests of retaining my sanity- please do not refer to Sharpton as Reverend. The only time Sharpton has ever set foot in a legit school of theology was to use the toilet. He was “declared” a reverend when he was four years old by some minister who was impressed with his unique ability to parrot what he heard in the sermons given by adults. He’s a fraud.

    • Obeline
    • ENOUGH!
      FAST & FURIOUS2 is not an option.

      The bizarre and seemingly staged massacre of innocents must be quickly and comprehensively investigated to reveal the truth. At the very least, it is a failure of Napolitano and local law enforcement. There are sufficient laws on the books to have prevented this horror. An outraged public should be calling for heads to roll.

      The FBI and DHS make a regular-dog-and pony show when they ‘intercept’ terrorists and save the day. This stands in remarkable contrast to all their ‘achievements’.

      With domestic dissidents including OWS and its radical offshoots, and Zulu Shabazz/New Black Panthers overtly and publicly threatening the Republican convention, and bragging about compromising the national stability at large, there is no excuse for law enforcement, at all levels and of all stripes, not to contain the threats and avert violence, mayhem, and deadly attacks.

      Aurora is a national and local tragedy. The loss of life is horrifying. And those responsible should be held accountable. JANET NAPOLITANO has some serious explaining to do.

      This must be exposed for what it is: a failure of law enforcement. This is not an excuse to ramp up gun control. Nor is it a bellwether of what could disrupt national stability prior to the election.

      There is a critical window between now and the election – and there’s a lot of work to be done. This massacre may have happened a couple months too soon.

      This will backfire — if there is sufficient public outcry.

      • truthandjustice
      • Yes, I have been having more and more thoughts that we need to bring about another united grass roots protest that will be so big and loud we will have to be noticed and even reported by the MSM – like the Tea Party or something If we believe what the Insiders have told us, along with our own research, then we only have a very, very short “window” to do this – before they launch their “biggie” to contain us, shut down communications, etc. I saw this blog today:

        “susan,i have been calling on all the freedom groups,large and small,i have been emailing and calling the nra,aarp,amac,john birch society,tea party,and a general call to all freedom loving,god fearing american veterans/citizens,and all militias,to come together under one giant freedom umbrella,a good place to start would be the treasonous un building,or the white house,we the people all know ovomit/devil is a treasonous trader fraud,a journey starts with a first step,time to talk/communicate/focus/plan/gather/refine plan,god bless ron paul,sheriff joe and cold case posee,brian terry and family,chuck norris,frank serpico,and all american veterans/citizens.one nation under god.”

        • Obeline
        • Agreed: No time for either hand-wringing nor succumbing to disinformation.

          For starters: Brian Ross, George Stephanopoulos, and ABC News must be held accountable for slandering the wrong Jim Holmes. MSM is clearly in the wrong and a law suit could be in order. Horrible to capitalize on this tragedy, but it could ignite some coverage to expose the media. If it proves to be a catalyst, so be it.

          Grass roots must be energized. Americans must wake up.


          • M. Simon
          • One thing to consider and only Sipsey St. seems to be covering it in the gun community. Without Drug Prohibition F&F is not possible. Now consider that national gun control started in the alcohol prohibition era.

      • I wonder if any have mused over a Batman incident at the Republican Convention? Or at both conventions (lots of democrats not going to be there)….may even Pelosi and Reed and Obama won’t be there all the time.

        Such disruption of our political process might prompt obama to follow up on his carefully orchestrated signing of executive orders.

        Just because it has never happened does not mean it cannot happen.

        • truthandjustice
        • Yes, now that you mention it — I was wondering why the Dem “leadership” like Pelosi has been telling Dems not to go???? Something planned that would put them in danger or whatever. I don’t know b/c my mind isn’t warped with satanic ideas like theirs – but I would think SOMETHING sinister is planned for these conventions….which reminds me – BREAKING —- just heard on Fox that Trumpka is now making their big push for a “New Bill of Rights” there….check out my next post.

      • bill o'rights
      • I agree with all, but for one detail.

        Based upon the timing, I doubt we’ll be able to fully investigate this. My guess is that the next false flag event is just around the bend, and will be followed by another and another, ad nauseum. And each event will likely be greater in scope, serving to create chaos, confusion and reliance upon the government in order to swoop I’m and take control under false pretenses.

        While I definately believe we need to investigate, I feel it would be more constructive to persuade those around us, and to warn about subsequent false flags. People need to see the relationship between events and politics in Washington. People need to understand that with each false flag event, we lose more and more freedoms. People need to be able to identify the ominous usurpations and they need to be convinced beyond the stages of denial so that we, as Americans can become a cohesive deterrent to the tyranny of the regime.

        We need our leaders in D.C. to fear us again, but there is very little time left.

    • BREAKING — Here it is folks — one of the pushes by the Commies as one of the Insiders said that is part of the conspiracy and “New World Order” deal — Big Labor….. Saw on Fox today about Trumpka & Big Labor for “New Bill of Rights” rally (excerpts):

      ” AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka says his organization is pushing for a ‘Second Bill of Rights” for the United States of America.
      Trumka and the AFL-CIO are calling for a new bill of rights that would guarantee “full employment,” a “living wage,” and a “healthy future.”

      Trumka intends to push both the Democrats and Republicans “the Second Bill of Rights” at their national conventions this summer.

      “America’s Second Bill of Rights is a broad-based statement of what the American people need and what they deserve. If some of it sounds redundant, it is because we once took many of these rights for granted,” Trumka said last Thursday at the National Press Club.

      Trumka was joined by Edwin D. Hill, president of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, to announce the “Workers Stand with America” rally in Philadelphia, Pa., on August 11. The event is intended to “refocus attention on the needs of middle class working Americans and to urge elected officials and leaders from both parties and every part of the nation to stand with them.”

      “We plan to put new energy behind insisting that the power structure in America pay attention to the needs of the men and women whose labor drives this country,” Trumka said.

      He outlined five main tenets of the Second Bill of Rights, which, in addition to the “right to full employment and a living wage,” and “the right to a secure and healthy future,” also includes the “right to full participation in the electoral process,” the “right to a quality education”; and the “right to a voice at work.”

      The idea of a Second Bill of Rights was inspired by President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1944 State of the Union address, which called for greater “economic rights” …

    • Off topic, but…Jon Lovitz had a great Tweet about Obama’s claim that entrepreneurs didn’t make their success on their own, referring to Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize:

      “Nobel Peace Prize? You didn’t earn that. Somebody else made that happen.”


      • truthandjustice
      • I also noted one of the Insiders said that Breitbart had been taken care of somehow where it wasn’t the threat it was before (strangely, before meaning the time around Breitbarts death).

        • Jules
        • He “met with” a member of law enforcement the evening of the day before his untimely death.

          Andrew Breitbart ought to be alive on earth today. His beautiful life was cut short by nefarious forces; I feel it in my bones.

      • truthandjustice
      • Yes, I saw that. I thought that it was like “killing two birds with one stone” — it would start the “no guns” argument up again and also put enough fear into people that it would cause many decide not to go see it or be cancelled, thereby reducing their profits and keeping it from the public more. ???

        • bill o'rights
        • Two points I’d make:

          1) The very definition of strategy ought to be ‘killing two birds with one stone’. I thought the same, as I was sitting in the theatre.

          2) These turd burglars must really mostly be foreigners or have spent so much time in their ivory towers that they’ve lost touch with the human race.

          You can’t scare Americans away from the movies.

          And, how do you go double platinum with your latest album? Why, make sure they slap a warning label on the front of the cd.

          Duh. Only a Kenyan, Hungarian or Iranian Marxist wouldn’t know that.

        • bill o'rights
        • For the record,

          I think the Marxist bastards just guaranteed that this film will be the highest grossing film in history, to date.

          Frankly, the movie was the most entertaining film I’ve ever seen. Not the greatest film ever, just the most thrilling.

          • truthandjustice
          • Yes, what I meant about bringing on cancellations/low turn out b/c of fear – that was surely their intent but I didn’t think it would work. Sure enough, Breitbart reports it made a humongous haul and didn’t make a dent in attendance.
            However, I can see that if they arrange a LOT of these at malls, other public places, it would probably start affecting things. Then they would have more excuses for “control”….one of which are those horrible scanners the TSA uses at the airports. I read where the goal was to use those as ways to “condition” the public under the guise of “seucirity” to start having those everywhere & becoming a police state – all that. This is quickly getting out of hand.
