Its the few at the top that direct the process and production of the FBI and if they are … distracted by giving testimony under oath and leaking to selected reporters and deciding which blocks of emails disappear, it doesn’t take many to throw the whole organization into disarray… Take for example… ICE and The Border Patrol under Obama… a few people at the time made the work of the rest worthless…
He makes a lot of shit up. The hilarious part is one day all the facts will stare him in the face, and he’ll agree with most everything he’s here fighting, making an ass of himself in the process.
My guess is Montecresto1 is young and idealistic and, thus far, refuses to acknowledge the obvious truths in the world around him. Who can blame him? That comes with age. What’s the saying? If you’re not a democrat when you’re young you have no heart, and if you’re not a republican when you’re older, you have no brain. So take pity on poor Montecresto1, he’s leading with his heart, not his brain. It’ll be some years yet before he starts making sense.
It is interesting that when blacks commit the outsizes portion of shootings against blacks… its some how the fault of whites… when whites commit what should be a proportional number of shooting, we are again at fault for it being more numerous than other groups… In all of this discussion I haven’t mentioned the black guy who murdered 6 Dallas cops… I guess because his weapon of choice doesn’t fit the narrative of the discussion. And SKS just doesn’t fit the definition of an assault rifle…
One could say that ‘mass shootings’ are, at least between blacks and whites… proportional to population size…
No surprise there, that’s almost exactly in line with the various races proportion of the population. Whites represent a majority of the population, so of course it’s the highest number.
I think he a out of work Russian troll trying to hire on with the D.N.C !
35000 investigating the nation one hundred dedicated to unseating a duly elected President . Go figure ?
We both are white males. What does that have to do with the FACT that white male US citizens are committing the damn MASS MURDERS at church’s, concerts, restaurants, theaters, schools, etc.
If the presidents team worked with the Russians, or if the president has obstructed Justice, or if he has been engaged in money laundering, there’s NOTHING legitimate about him. More indictments will follow.
That simply is not true people of color have that unfortunate title ! Remember the chief law enforcement agency in the nation has set the standard of 4 or more death at one time as a mass murder !
16% of the population commits 38 per cent of murders,
Blacks were disproportionately likely to commit homicide and to be the victims. In 2008 the offending rate for blacks was seven times higher than for whites and the victimisation rate was six times higher.
As we found yesterday, 93 per cent of black victims were killed by blacks
In 2013, the FBI has black criminals carrying out 38 per cent of murders, compared to 31.1 per cent for whites. The offender’s race was “unknown” in 29.1 per cent of cases.
What about violent crime more generally? FBI arrest rates are one way into this. Over the last three years of data – 2011 to 2013 – 38.5 per cent of people arrested for murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault were black
This study of violent crime in deprived neighbourhoods in Cleveland, Ohio, found that reductions in poverty led to reductions in the crime rate in exactly the same way in predominantly black and white areas, suggesting poverty, not race, is the biggest factor.
Other studies get different results.
All sociologists have suffered from the same basic problem: finding urban white communities that are as disadvantaged as the poorest black neighbourhoods, so that you can get a fair comparison.
Some thinkers play down the importance of poverty in favour of the “violent subculture theory”.
Name me one mass murder committed with an AR-15 carried out at a school/college, restaurants, theatre, church, concert, mall etc., carried out by a male or female of color.
You want to cherry pick the statistics to mach your narrative and in doing so you attempt to hide the truth and do yourself and the people who believe you a disservice !
There is no way around the truth that as bad and as much as the left wants to push the evil weapon that kill kids the truth is these shooing are a small percentage of the killings in America most often done by young black men against other young black men and all are living in poverty in large city’s control ed by democrats .
How racist is it that the media and the democrats are mostly silent on this travesty ?
Well of course you couldn’t name me one example! They are a smaller percentage, but obvious to all but the most belligerent, they are the shootings that grab the American attention, and for good reason, the moderate (as in not the fringe) aspects of the GOP are joining the call.
The democrats could not have picked a better issue for the President then gun control in the midterms !
Nothing guarantees to get out the vote for the GOP then the democrats talking gun control !
Past performances is a promise of the South the North West Wisconsin , Pennsylvania , Ohio , Iowa , and Michigan will vote a GOP ticket !
Gun Control Can Swing the 2016 Election
There was a good reason Obama was mute on gun control until he was elected the second time !
Democrats, not just in presidential races but down the ballot in all but the bluest states. Fear of the wrath—and deep campaign coffers—of the NRA has led Democrats to make often-ridiculous displays of their love for hunting, and to avoid running on policy prescriptions for gun violence. This defensive stance first took hold after the 1994 midterms, when an assault-rifle ban pushed by President Bill Clinton was blamed for Republicans’ winning majorities in both houses of Congress. In 2000, Al Gore’s loss in his home state of Tennessee, which made Florida the pivotal state that cost him the presidency, was also attributed to his support for gun control. Noam Scheiber reported for the New Republic in 2001 that Gore’s team of advisers had worried that “gun control would hurt the vice president in the states he needed most,” particularly among rural voters in Pennsylvania, western Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Iowa. “After the election,” Scheiber wrote, “the Gore campaign’s hunch became Democratic gospel.”https://newrepublic.com/article/127473/gun-control-can-swing-2016-election
Democrats have been turning away from gun control ever since Al Gore’s run for the presidency. The then-vice president and his advisors had tried to out-gun-control liberal challenger Bill Bradley during the Democratic primaries. Campaigning against George W. Bush in the general election, Gore decided to quiet his criticism of the NRA and mute his support for gun control to build support in battleground states like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan where support for gun rights runs high. In the wake of Gore’s loss, many Democrats blamed the defeat on previous pro-gun control positions Gore had taken, and pulled the party further back from where it had been on the issue.
By the middle of 2001, ditching gun control had become conventional wisdom among centrist Democrats. Sen. Zell Miller, D-Ga., said Al Gore had talked about it too much. Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, Gore’s running mate, thought gun control had cost the Democratic ticket “a number of voters who on almost every other issue realized they’d be better off with Al Gore.” Terry McAuliffe, head of the Democratic National Committee, in particular wanted his party to drop the issue. In a June 2001 article discussing McAuliffe’s strategy, Roger Simon cited a strong correlation between gun ownership and voting for Bush, as demonstrated by exit poll stats. “Guns made a big difference in 2000,” argued Simon, “especially in some key states that Al Gore lost, like Tennessee and Arkansas.” What Simon did not establish was how many of these gun owners considered gun control a paramount issue, or whether any of them would’ve chosen Gore over Bush if the vice president had moved further or earlier to the right.
Lol. That’s not the singular issue in November.
Are you dense ? Don’t you think firearm owners pay attention to what has been proposed by members of the government or the media maybe even you ?
We remember the unless assault rifle ban the high capacity magazine ban the shortage of 22 cal bullets under Obama .
We will vote and send a message in 2018 !
It’s not only white males. Cruz is not a white American male’s surname. No matter what you’re shown you keep saying white males commit mass murders, as if that’s established fact. It’s not. Do white males commit the majority in America? Of course, white’s are a majority of the population. What a surprise!
All the gun laws are in place, in most states, that would prevent mass shootings, yet they happen anyway, so logic dictates that there is another reason that has nothing to do with whether or not laws are in place. California has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, plenty of shootings in Cali, mass and otherwise. New Jersey may have the strictest gun laws, they’ve never had a school shooting, to their credit, but the gun laws don’t deter their black on black gun shooting problem. Why not? The laws are there, strict laws, why isn’t it working?
If you look at it honestly, the idea that stricter gun laws prevent shootings simply isn’t true. You may be able to extract a useful statistic to try and win an argument, but when you look at the whole picture it doesn’t work.
America’s 2nd Amendment guarantees us the right to keep and bear arms, that’s any arms that would make a militia effective in it’s day. So a narrow minded, delusional dream that guns will be taken away from Americans is misguided. There’s another reason people are hurting each other. There’s something else driving people insane. We need to sort that out.
I like this logic:
Cut the personal attacks and stick to the issues.
Nicolas Cruz used an AR-15-style rifle.
He’s a white male, he’s was adopted as a young child, You don’t know what HIS surname was. And take a look at the video of that pasty white shirtless kid shooting his pistol in the back yard with his MAGA hat proudly displayed.
