Obama is paying the price for building castles in the sand

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” – Matthew 7:24-27

Way, way back in 2008 I commented that the most amazing thing about Barack Obama was that he somehow managed to make it to his mid-40’s without leaving any footprints. I guess it would have been more accurate to say that any footprints he made were quickly washed away.

I was still a liberal Democrat and regular at Buffoon Juice when Obama won the Iowa caucuses. People were saying lots of good things about him so I figured I should check him out. I was expecting to be impressed but instead, I was underwhelmed. My first impression of Obama was that he was too unaccomplished and inexperienced to be considered for the top job. The only thing I really liked about him was the fact that he was black.

I concluded that Obama would be better suited as the VP candidate and that in 4-8 years he could run for president again. Little did I know that at that moment my opinion of Barack Obama was peaking. What initially turned me against Obama was his supporters. When I expressed my opinion of Obama to the Buffoons I was quite surprised and taken aback to be informed that my opinion was racist. Apparently, thinking that Obama should be VP was just like telling Rosa Parks to get out of my seat.

That was back then. More recent events are giving me a schadenboner that the cat couldn’t scratch:

High-profile Obama administration alumni pointedly warned the Democratic presidential candidates to “be wary of attacking” the popular two-term president’s record, in the wake of Wednesday’s debate where top-tier contenders bashed his legacy in a bid to score points against former Vice President Joe Biden.

While all 10 White House hopefuls on stage during the second night of back-to-back Democratic nomination debates fired away at Republican President Trump, Barack Obama’s name was invoked 23 times during the showdown.

[…]

Specifically coming under attack were ObamaCare – the president’s signature domestic policy achievement that dramatically transformed health care in America – and the Obama administration’s policy of stepped-up deportations of illegal immigrants.

Former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel – who served as Obama’s first White House chief of staff – on Thursday morning called the jabs by fellow Democrats “nuts.”

Emanuel told Fox Business Network’s “WSJ At Large,” in an interview airing Friday at 9:30 p.m., that his former boss “is at 90-odd percent among Democrats. He’s the most successful progressive president … since the Great Society.”

And Eric Holder – who served as attorney general for much of Obama’s presidency – issued a warning on Twitter.

“To my fellow Democrats. Be wary of attacking the Obama record. Build on it. Expand it. But there is little to be gained – for you or the party – by attacking a very successful and still popular Democratic President,” Holder wrote.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that a man who accomplished nothing before he became president would continue that pattern in the Oval Orifice.

Obama went to Columbia and Harvard Law School. He was president of the Harvard Law Review. So what did he accomplish at Columbia and Harvard?

Nothing. Nothing we know of, anyway. His records at both places are sealed. He didn’t publish anything in the Harvard Law Review. Neither of his memoirs mentions any accomplishments he made while attending those places.

Obama brags about having been a community organizer, but what did he accomplish during his time in the South Side of Chicago?

Nothing.

What did Obama accomplish as a state senator in Illinois?

Nothing.

What did Obama accomplish as a US Senator?

Nothing.

The gulf between the Obama that was advertised and the Obama that was delivered is approximately the size of the Gulf of Mexico.

We were told that Barack Obama would be the smartest president ever. He was a Jedi Master of politics with mad skillz at persuading and inspiring people both individually and in large groups. The Obama that we were promised would be a game-changer, a once-in-a-lifetime leader who would make America great again. They told us that Obama had transcended race and was the Magical Unity Pony that had been prophecied. He would heal the breach caused by slavery, segregation, and racism, We would gather together as a nation, hold hands, and sing “Kumbayah.”

The Obama we were promised was a Lightworker. The Obama we got was just a light worker. He was smart, but not nearly as smart as he thought he was. His political skillz were lacking, his speeches were uninspiring, and he turned out to be the most divisive president ever.

His policies were bad, his appointees worse, and he was not even involved in crafting the program that was supposed to be his lasting legacy and still carries his name.

Obamacare is truly Obama’s legacy. It was supposed to heal the sick, raise the dead, and halt the rising of the oceans. Obamacare would cover more people for more things and it would also save us money. It would transcend math, medical science, and human nature. Best of all, if we liked our doctors we could keep our doctors. If we liked our plan, we could keep our plan.

Contrary to what we were promised it was crafted in secret. When we asked Nancy Pelosi for specifics we were told we had to pass it to know what was in it. It was jammed thru Congress without a single GOP vote. Democrats were so sure that we would love Obamacare that they set it up to take effect AFTER Obama was reelected.

Obamacare turned out to be an abomination. It would cost the Democrats the House of Representatives, thus halting the rest of Obama’s legislative agenda. The Obamafluffing media could cheerlead for Obama and cover for Obama, but they could not make 2+2 equal 5.

Obamacare remains on the books but it is effectively dead.

We Americans are an ornery bunch. If you try to jam something down our throats we’ll jam it up your ass. Treating us like children and forcing us to swallow something under the theory that if we try it we’ll like it is a dubious idea at best, and it is downright silly in the case of a piece of crap like Obamacare.

America is a democratic republic. In order to achieve lasting change you must have the support of the general public. You need their support to pass it and you need their support to keep it. Without the support of the voters you are building castles in the sand.

Obama failed to win widespread support for his policies and programs. His frequent use of identity politics and the race card divided the country. People did not appreciate being told that their opposition to Obama’s agenda was based on racism. If you pass something with 50%+1 votes the other side only has to flip one vote to tip it back the other way.

Barack Obama has no official power anymore. He doesn’t have the kind of wealth that would allow him to buy influence. All he has left is his voice. And for many people (including us) his voice is like nails on a slate chalkboard. The crowds no longer chant his name. His endorsement has never carried much weight.

Obama used to be important, but now he is impotent. He can do nothing as Donald J. Trump erases his legacy and writes his own. Ain’t that a shame?

    He has a much bigger price to pay, for his treasonous acts, but it’s a start.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Thanks for the update. Why is that Mall not being sued, at least for medical and rehab? I know the attacker had mental issues, but there’s got to be some liability on the mall’s part, it happened on their property.

      • Mothy67 says:

        They might be. The gofundme raised over a million, but 3 months in ICU and now rehab will exceed that. I doubt they’ve spent very much time away from him. Bless the little guys heart.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I noticed 30k donors too. It’s very uplifting to see such compassion.

          • Mothy67 says:

            I like that the family hasn’t be on Dr. Phil or countless tabloids. I would love to hear about them when the time is right for them. ICU sucks when you’re a kid.

    WoW, I need a ciggy 🙂 Great WalkAway story too, or as I like to refer to that 2008 election, I’m from the WalkAway Class of 2008. Democrats were just starting to be really awful, then the JournOlisters formed and decided never to write a negative story about Obama, The Chosen One.

    It all got creepy as hell.

    I remember a few years ago watching the author of Deconstructing Obama on Cspan, our gut feelings were right about the “mysterious savior of light”, probably the greatest con in the history of our country. I found it in the archives, over an hour, or you can search The American Thinker archives for Cashill’s other great articles on Bam-Bam and Bridezilla. 😀

    I remember a woman at Big Pink who had several user names because she was doxxed severely. The boys went after her career and wrote about raping her with a knife. I thought little of bambi at the time. He wasn’t worth getting upset over at first. It was his rabid fans that turned me off bigly . I think if hillary had gone full blown bitch she could have stopped him.

    • lyn says:

      It’s funny how real or threatened violence by Obama supporters was OK back then.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      RD got kicked off DailyKos (which was the Big Kahuna of prog blogs back then) for referring to the conduct of Obama supporters as a “jihad” against Hillary supporters. That was when she started TC.

      • DeniseVB says:

        RD was right. I think after the purges at dKos and DU, I ended up with Hillbuzz, probably elsewhere too, but can’t remember those.

  4. DeniseVB says:

    This made me think about Obama’s legacy too. Anyone remember Chisanbop (?)

  5. helenk3 says:

    when I looked to backtrack’s upbringing I knew he would not be good as a president. Bomber billy ayers, rev goddamn America wright, frank marshall davis and a few others all very anti-America. I was taught as the twig is bent so grows the tree.
    He lied and hid too many things to be nothing but a con man.
    I still believe he is the biggest enemy of this country in my lifetime put in place to do as much harm as possible and he still is. The dems knew what he was and took color over country. I will never forgive or forget that.

    • DeniseVB says:

      U of Hawaii offered him a wing at their school, because he’s such a loyal and caring native son and all that 😉 (Have the Obamas been back for their “traditional family Christmas” since we stopped paying for it?)

      BO has to raise 1/2 the funds before the U.S. govt will match them. I haven’t noticed any efforts on his part to do that, he’s been too busy running his scam OFA boondoggle, which is basically an Orange Man Bad hate group.

    That was a wonderful post, klown.
    I agree that the people around bronco were what turned me off at least as much as the unwarranted hype. Not the common folk who volunteered at his campaign offices on the South Side. No. They liked him and were hopeful that he, a black man, could aspire to the office of President. They were fans but not fanboyz. They were not crazy, nor brainwashed, nor hateful. They were hopeful. I worked very closely with some of those people in a professional capacity. They were middle-aged to older adults who were Public Aid recipients, living in public housing, unemployed and using food stamps. They were also the ones whom he “fired” from his campaign telling them he couldn’t have unpaid volunteers in those campaign offices. They were accustomed to shady politicians who’d sell their grandmothers for an easy dime. And they were very much invested in working on behalf of someone who looked like them and sounded like a man who could honestly make a difference in their lives and in the world. They weren’t blinded by his “goodness” or his purported intelligence. They were simply people who were filled with hope and wanted to work toward a better world. They were also the ones whom he “fired” from his campaign telling them he couldn’t have unpaid volunteers in those campaign offices. Then he hired young, White and Asian college grads and college students as well as White political professionals to man his offices. All those dedicated Black women and men from the ‘hood could go scratch (because their skin color and economic history might taint his appeal). That was the first tell for me.
    Then he himself completely turned me off when I attended one of his first townhalls in Chicago. It was a performance. A rehearsal for what was to come. He was arrogant, effete, and actually – ignorant. He left me with the feeling that he valued no one but himself and respected no one who did not worship at his feet. I saw – close up – the way spoke at (not with or to) those college “kids” who were working for him. I also saw his disregard for what they tried to do to help him. I was standing within 24 inches from him and those paid “volunteers”. He was curt and rude. And he let them know HE was the guy in charge and they were his lackeys. I was so turned off that I nearly left. But I had been home that day trying to get through the first few days of a really bad cold and decided at the last moment to attend that meeting at Loyola University. During that meeting he showed me how little he knew and how little he regarded the people who attended that meeting. He let everyone know how lucky they/we were that he would attend this small (many hundreds) gathering becausehe was going to a much larger townhall hours later that would be televised. We were his practice run so I suppose he didn’t think we deserved his full attention. He was dismissive of questions and questioners. He had no idea who Gold Star Mom’s were and made an off-hand joke about a woman who announced that she was a (recent) Gold Star Mom. He actually said to someone else that he had no intention of answering “that” question because he would be speaking to “that” at the later, televised, meeting. Et.,etc.,etc.
    When the Democrats – I was a liberal Dem at the time – started sending out emails asking for people to commit to going to Iowa to be present in the caucuses I became more than a little suspicious about the honesty of the campaign, the people running the campaign and the candidate. When I questioned the integrity of the campaign, I became persona non grata in dem circles. Since my name was still on the email lists, I continued to receive requests as well as updates from the Dems. I had decided, once there was a list of candidates, that HRC was the person I would support. That she was a woman played a part in my decision. But she also had so much experience and had a history of success in the Senate. Her skin color had no role in my choice any more than bronco’s skin color had in my decision to not support him.
    Until everyone who supported him said it did. Because they knew me better than I knew myself. And after all the years of working with and on behalf of black people everywhere, I found out I was a racist. It was dangerous – especially where I lived and worked – to share my dislike of that man aloud. I risked having my car keyed or worse if I had anything indicating a preference that was NOT obama. Not wearing a campaign button that didn’t have his name on it was risky behavior. NOT wearing a campaign button at all was almost a sure sign I was a racist. Yes, it became dangerous to be a “non-believer”.
    That man was the most divisive person ever to run for – and even more importantly to win – the Presidency. If you were successful he said “you didn’t build that”. If you were white he said “people who don’t look like me”. If you weren’t a democrat, he railed against you at home and even more when he was on foreign soil. If you were a cop he said you were stupid.
    He was worse than Al Sharpton because he had the bully pulpit and his words carried weight. He is still worse than Sharpton because he is a “smoother” talker. He is a snake oil salesman. A shyster. A conman. And hatefilled. And envious. He will never have the wealth of a Trump or a Gates, or a Jay-Z or an Epstein. He will never be satisfied.
    I will never forgive him and his supporters for what he did to this country.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      Obama ran two simultaneous campaigns in the run-up to 2008. He spent a lot of time in black neighborhoods and black churches, especially the ones in South Carolina. He also campaigned online and on college campuses going for the white yuppie progs.

      But he didn’t want to be seen as a “black” candidate so as soon as he won SC he cut the black folks loose and focused on the white vote. After spending years going to black churches (including Rev. Wright’s church) as soon as he locked up the black vote he quit going to church altogether.

      As president, he took his family to church occasionally, but he always brought a photographer along. The exception was 2012, for obvious reasons.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        When Obama first started community organizing the people of the South Side were leery of him because other than the color of his skin he had no connection to the black community. Somebody told him he needed to attend a black church to learn black culture so he picked one of the biggest ones which was Trinity UCC.

        For years he made a big deal about how important Rev. Wright was to his life, then the instant Wright became a problem he cut him loose without a second thought.

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          Neither Barry nor Mooch has shown any desire to return to Chicago. They rarely even visit. Bill Clinton still spends a lot of time in Arkansas, GWB lives in Texas, and Jimmy Carter is still in Plains. Since he left office Barack Obama has spent more time on Warren Buffet’s island than in Chicago.

          • lateblum says:

            Sometimes I wonder what those generous and genuine people that I worked with back then, I wonder what they think – how they feel. I doubt they feel betrayed and I think they feel proud that one of “their own” was president and I think they feel they played a role. I don’t believe they saw anything he did or said as divisive or destructive. In fact I still have good friends who believe he was almost Savior-like. smh

          • Constance says:

            They seem sort of homeless and just endlessly touring in rich style. I find it odd since I like to have a home somewhere. I don’t ever see them together either.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I was With Her for a little while because Hillary’s supporters were nicer to me than Obama’s. (I was a recovering Edwardian). Did you stick with her through the primary? When Sarah Palin came on the scene, and the way the feminists treated her badly, I finally cut the cord with everything Dem.

      I love to share, as one who plays fantasy real estate games, to live in decent housing in NYC, we make too much for subsidized housing, but not enough to qualify for rent in a decent building. 3bd/2bth easily costs us almost our whole monthly retirement check. Yes, I have good taste 🙂

      • DeniseVB says:

        Update: Much more than our retirement check now, ya just can’t blink in the NYC rental market. https://streeteasy.com/building/tower-67/34g

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          I was thinking, for that rent, I would want a washer and dryer in the unit. I am such 🙃 silly rabbit. Trudging to and from the Laundry room is for au pairs and other worker bees.

        • Anthony says:

          I have clients in that building. Boxes with 8 foot ceilings. Hate it.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I just plucked one from a rental site to get the feel for what a 3/2 was going for in one of the neighborhoods I like. Almost 9k/mo !!!!!! LOL, I showed it to my husband and he get’s all defensive “What, you’re not happy !?”. I prefer the mid-century or earlier buildings. I think it was in Nora Ephron’s memoir I fell in love with the UWS. Decades ago, her building didn’t renew leases unless they were willing to pay 10k month. I think she was paying less than 400.00 at the time.

          • Anthony says:

            A 3/2 goes for 8 or 9 in a decent building. I like pre-wars or brownstones. I have a 1 br in a brownstone and i love it. Been here 24 years, my rent is 1/3 of new leases in this building for the same square footage. Thats why I bought a $5K stove without batting an eyelash Only way I’ll leave is feet first.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Timing is everything, you’re so lucky. My sister and her new husband moved out of the UWS in the 70’s and bought a sh*thole fixer-upper brownstone in the Brooklyn Prospect Park area for 300k, we laughed at them. They persisted, fixed it up, it’s worth about 2 mil now. NYC is crazy like that.

          • Anthony says:

            Good foresight. i toyed with buying one of those on Convent Ave in the 90s, but bought upstate instead. Good profit when i sold too

      I was coming of age during JFK, there was nothing but great respect for him and our country. There were anarchists then, but pretty much ignored as nut jobs. I believe it was Obama who finally mainstreamed them into the Dem Party and it’s getting worse. That’s also going to be his legacy, he only inspired anti-Americans, not patriots.

        Basket weaving would be more useful than ‘naturopathic medicine and acupuncture’. You’d at least have a basket.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That’s not my fault she made bad choices on her college path.

      Remember when they called Sarah Palin stupid to taking 6 years to finish college? It’s because she worked her way through and took long breaks to WORK.

      • Mothy67 says:

        What about the people that saved or ran up credit cards. I remember charging books, utilities, food. She should go into practice with someone older looking to semi-retire. That’s how my dentist bought his practice.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        Nobody gets declined for a student loan because of bad credit. They put no strings on what classes or majors you choose. You can borrow $100,000 for a degree in a useless major. Student loans are non-dischargeable in bankruptcy.

        But student loans are used for more than tuition and books. People use them to buy cars and stereos, and to pay for Spring Break vacays.

        • Mothy67 says:

          I read for non medical studies the max was between 5 and 12 thousand a year for guaranteed loans.

        • 1539days says:

          I bought a car for $1700, all on student loans. It lasted about 3 years during classes and work.
          Now I have a Masters degree and less than $5,000 in student loan debt.

    • Miranda says:

      I imagine ‘naturopathic medicine and acupuncture’ don’t pay very well. I’m not exaggerating: those are her degrees.

      I thought two of my friends were a bit harsh with their kids when they made them pick paying careers instead of ‘following their passion’ (music and drama), but those parents were smart.

      Why are people surprised to find college costs money? They don’t hide the charges. You shouldn’t be blindsided about it.

      • lateblum says:

        Those careeers probably won’t pay $500k in loans. But they do pay something. There are some homeopathic and acupuncture practices that are flourishing here. My guess is that if my acupuncturist wasn’t married to a successful businessman, she could still live fairly well even with her babies to raise. But she is the exception. Her family questioned her choice in studying Chinese medicine and acupuncture years ago, but she was a real student and has been highly successful. She has her own clinic and has several other therapists of varying modalities working there. It’s quite well known around these parts. I only got in to see her a few years ago, because her mother and I had worked together decades ago and her sister dated my son and is still good friends with him and his wife.
        Connections help these days🙃

        When my daughter wanted to switch majors from business to anthropology, I cut the bank cord, she dropped out and went to become certified as a bike mechanic and wheel builder, her second passion was bikes, and she can visit the AMNH anytime she wants 🙂

          Good for you and your daughter! Another friend’s kid went through community college and is an MRI tech at a top-level hospital. She will always be employable.

      Wtf was she expecting? She could’ve just taken a certification course in acupuncture for about $10K and had it paid off by now. Dumbass.

      My cousin’s son is in the midst of a divorce. His soon-to-be ex wife – who confessed after 6 years of marriage that she’s always been a lesbian but her folks said “get married and have a kid – majored in women’s studies. I had to burst his bubble and tell him she’d probably never get a job with that degree. I’d sue the colleges who are approving loans for worthless majors.

    This is a great post! It is astounding to me how many people fell so deeply for what I call Ofraudma. You are so correct in your comments that Obama did absolutely nothing, no matter where he was. Oh, he sang some Al Green and busted some moves with DeGeneres…but that’s about it. What I hope for most at this point is that someone, somewhere, will start digging into the depths of his fraudulent career and exposing those who collaborated with him along the way. Thanks for the great post.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      Obama did stuff, he just didn’t accomplish anything worth mentioning. In school, he cultivated the image of a cosmopolitan man-of-the-world. I would bet anything he liked to start sentences with things like, “When I lived in Indonesia . . ” to impress people. At Punahou School, he told everybody his father was an African prince.

      He liked to wear a sarong around his apartment and he held his cigarette European style between his thumb and forefinger. While other kids his age were listening to Pop, Rock, Soul, Disco, and R&B, Obama listened to jazz. He was what we used to call “Too cool for school.”

      He was the kind of student who schmoozed teachers to impress them hoping for better grades (confession: I did it too) He would skim a book to get a superficial knowledge of the subject and then act like he was an expert.

      He faked his way thru life until he became POTUS. You can’t fake it as POTUS. In 2008 before the election I said the worst thing that could happen to Obama would be for him to win because he would be on stage 24/7 with nowhere to hide.

    The Left wants to disinter the bones of Ronald Reagan and burn them. That’s what the Catholic Church did to Galileo when the excommunicated him after he was dead.

    I’m sorry, but a single racial comment does not a racist make. They never mention LBJ, who was an old school segregationist who used the N-word casually and frequently.

    In 1838 Mexican President Antonio López de Santa Anna lost his leg fighting the French in the Pastry War. He amputated leg was buried with full military honors. In 1844 a mob dug up the leg and dragged it around behind a horse until there was nothing left.

    Sic transit gloria mundi.

She had two wii consoles that she never touches. Thankfully I looked up the newer one she got as a gift. 750 dollars still in the box. I had told her to ask for 50.

    Excellent, excellent post. I ln 2008, I was with the corrupt sea hag who later adopted a hospital sign as her logo 🏨 Once Donna Brazile cast the deciding vote in the R&B Committee meeting (despite being a CNN contributor which should’ve disqualified her) I took my hands off the wheel and let the chips fall where they may.

    I was never able to warm up to Obama because of a gut vibe – really a ‘guy thing’ – that he was full of himself/shit. But more legitimately, because he had the thinnest resumē I ever saw. Despite my low expectations, he actually outdid himself where worthlessness and vapidity were concerned.

    Perhaps his bitter clinging to the title he once held might be his greatest accomplishment. (can you tell that I still think he’s loathesome?)

      Obama is definitely the worst post-President in my lifetime. At least the others went home and did nice things. GWB and Laura still visit Wounded Warriors in the hospital, not sure about the Clintons, their “foundation” is kind of slimey and Hillary just won’t go away, GHWB and Bar went home to Texas and Maine, Jimmah built homes for po’people, Reagans and Johnsons went back to their ranches, Nixon kinda just disappeared to San Clemente with Pat. (Kennedy died 😦 ) Eisenhower went back to his farm in Gettysburg. Truman left the WH penniless, thus a pension fund was established for future Prezzies because no President should, heaven forbid, go broke during his term.

      Yep, all the Presidents in my lifetime. Obama became a multi-millionaire from a zero bank account and a poorly ghostwritten memoir which created him. Then buys an 8 million dollar house 2 miles from the WH ? Until Sasha finishes school? Now they plan to stay in DC so when the girls come home to visit, their friends are still there? Who does that? Yep, the worst President and post President in my lifetime. Creepy has hell too, just look at those dead, souless eyes in myiq’s post photo.

        I watched the Jack Cashill talk on C-Span you linked. It was fascinating. I think I want to read his book when things settle down for me a bit.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I need to re-watch it, because everything myiq wrote in his post made me think of Cashill, He was flipped off during Obama…….as a conspiracy theory nutjob. The book is still in publication and still averaging 4-5 stars on Amazon, not bad for a nutjob 🙂

    So Beto and the local free borders pusher Veronica Escobar are talking gun control. El Paso shooting…3 suspects in custody according the mayor’s office. Multiple people dead.

    • mcnorman says:

      Yes, I’m here. The entire city police, DEA, FBI ATF are all at the area of the shooting. IMHO Juarez cartel has just crossed the walkover to El Paso.

      • mcnorman says:

        18 adults 4 children dead so far

        • mcnorman says:

          Reports are that these people are related??? If so, my bet is Juarez cartel has just crossed over to do business here. This is what the city of Juarez lives with daily.

          • mcnorman says:

            Dedicated gang hit, they won’t say drug related even though DEA was there asap. Only have one shooter in custody. The area has apartment complexes behind the mall. Creeps could be anywhere. All malls in a 2-3 mile zone have been closed. People are being dropped off at schools. The entire area is massive and IDK how the forensic teams are gonna be able to get this reviewed.

          • mcnorman says:

            El Paso Mayor Dee Margo is saying there are three suspects in custody, KFOX14 reports.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Thanks for the updates.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Scary when it hits so close to home. I’d send “thoughts and prayers” but the gun grabbers won’t let me, I have TO DO something to stop it, like take your gun or something.

        Take care, stay safe.

        • mcnorman says:

          I’m safe. The city got an alert. I got a call from BIL who is law enforcement to stay away from the area. Looks like an idiot with an automatic weapon in the photos from security. This is not tax free school shopping weekend so there is that but a lot of people were shopping with kids. Another family member on call at the local hospital where it’s chaotic but controlled. Very sad that this has to happen anywhere, but like I said this is a daily experience across the border in Juarez. It does spill over occasionally. Who knows what the nutter in the pic had on his mind?

          • Mothy67 says:

            Someone posted a manifesto from 4chan. Reads like one person was involved. So if there sre 3 in custody maybe fake?

    • Mothy67 says:

      Yuck twatter has video of at least one deceased.

        This is stupid on its face. They called it “King Cotton” for a reason. Cotton provided a huge infusion of capital to our fledgling republic. Starting a capitalist system with zero capital is problematic. Before the invention of the cotton gin we weren’t making much from exports. Cotton pumped money into our economic system.

        Slaves were used to pick the cotton. For that to be economically viable they would have to cost less than the cotton.

  25. Angie says:

    The speed at which the media rushed to defend Obama from policy criticism by the Dem nominees reminds me of the bad old days when Obama was president.
    Meanwhile the media calls Trump a crazy, racist, rapist Nazi 24/7.

      It was very sad. It made me reflect on what I did this afternoon. I was running an errand that took me to Walmart of all places. Whole families were walking into the store and cars looking for a parking spot were stacked up like planes on a runway. I was claustrophobic and I was still outside. The parking lot was so full that I exited onto a road that I was unfamiliar with – just to get out of there. But while I was there, I thought about what a mess it was and about the numbers of people drawn to that store, especially on Saturday. I found it to be concerning and actually scary. It was like a trap with few exits. I had no idea this was happening at another Walmart, but in El Paso. Those poor people.

      • mcnorman says:

        The sun will rise again tomorrow. This will be used as a political beat stick while families try to recover. It was a day for school supplies shopping. The area is saturated with people on the weekends. He knew his targets well.

        • mcnorman says:

          One of our largest mortuary funeral homes just announced that they will pay for all the funeral expenses. The lines to give blood are round the block. Reality shocks to communities like this force people to become civil and kind. It’s one of the few good things that comes out of these horrible events.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        Imagine some 15-year-old El Paso teenybopper texting “#FML I’m in a crowded Walmart on a hot summer day. Kill me now” just before the shooting started.

  33. DandyTIger says:

    Notice the recent trend. Since calling Trump a racist doesn’t seem to matter, the left is focused on calling all Trump supporters racist. Problem for them is it’s not new. They’ve been doing that from the beginning. Yawn.

    • lateblum says:

      How true. They ran that word into the ground and now “racist” coming from the Left means Nothing.

    • Cisco says:

      And just as I was getting comfortable being a gun and Bible clinging irredeemable deplorable.
      That was always a mouthful to say, so I like the much shorter racist.

    • lyn says:

      Yes, because President Trump is racist, all his multi-colored supporters are too. Today I am purple.

    • Anthony says:

      Exactly. I wonder what theyll do when the figure out that we don’t gaf lol.

      I was thinking the other day that Nadler will probably find some way to impeach him, and the next day he’ll wake up to business going on as usual, as if nothing he did mattered. Because it doesn’t. Its like letting a 4 year old threaten to hold their breath until they turn blue while you just keep calmly vacuuming or doing the dishes until they eventually get over themselves 🤣

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      I get annoyed sometimes because it’s not enough to not be a racist, you have to tiptoe around certain subjects and people because using the wrong word or phrase can be deemed racist and get you banned. And the rules constantly change.

      But no matter what you do or how hard you try to stay within the Left’s boundaries of acceptable language and behavior, if you are white they will still call you a racist.

      Even if you are a liberal – according to the Left all white people are racist, but “woke” whiteys are aware of their racism and try to fight it.

    We have the pattern down to a routine now:

    1. A crazy person shoots some people
    2. Media tries to pin it on the Right. (If the shooter is clearly a Leftist, skip to #6)
    3. Democrats politicize the tragedy, blame guns, NRA, Trump, Right
    4. Democrats demand new laws, none of which would have stopped the tragedy.
    5. Republicans cling to guns and religion, refuse to pass new laws.
    6. Media loses interest.

    Why do I think that beto is using the shooting in El Paso as a political opportunity? I really wish I did not think that but the 11 years have taught me that the dems will use any horrible thing as a political prop.

    I just want to share some first hand knowledge so none of you will feel the need to conduct your own experiment. If you have bandaids on your fingers, you can’t operate a touchscreen.

      Most touch screens are projected capacitive. They rely on the capacitance of the human body to register touch. You can use a stylus (I got one at the dollar store) and grab it with your other finders to do the job.

      In China, they used a really cheap method in the winter. They were using frozen sausage links as a stylus when they wore gloves.
