“News,” HLN style

So apparently HLN ran a news banner stating that Trump just signed an “execution order.”

I wonder how many other lamestream muddia outlets are running with the “execution” story already.


How dare he not follow all 17 million!

The lefty Trumpeing outrage is… well, I thought they’d hit rock bottom, but then they broke out the pickaxes.

Donald Trump has 17 million Twitter followers, follows 28 people in return
President-elect Donald Trump loves Twitter but clearly views it as a microphone rather than a tool for dialogue. He has more than 17 million followers and follows only 40 accounts in return. Of those 10 are properties or organizations he operates, three are media outlets, nine are friends or his family members, six are Trump campaign operatives or supporters, 11 are broadcasters and one is Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

Man, I quit Twitter even before I discovered that you’re legally obligated to follow everyone who follows you.

Hey… waitaminnit…


Brett’s got over 13,000 twitterbots, dumbasses, and obligated family members followers. But she doesn’t follow all of them.

I think someone should sue her for breach of imaginary contract.

That’s not suspicious at all.

Not a bit.

You may have heard of “Pizzagate.” You may have heard about “Edgar Maddison Welch,” who allegedly walked into the pizza place to “investigate” Pizzagate. With an AR-15, which he apparently fired.

Now, I don’t really buy into the whole Pizzagate thing. But there is somet5hing weird, and most of what the lamestream muddia is labeling “fake news” looked more like investigations and questions. Not “news.” When Welch reportedly did his thing, I thought it sounded… all too convenient for folks who’d like to make all the Pizzagate investigations go way. Smear it with a lone lunatic.

So I wonder: Exactly how many “Edgar Maddison Welches” can there be in the country? A sub-employed actor/writer/production assistant?

Maybe I should give the Pizzagate allegations a little more credence.

Active “Shooter” at OSU (multiple updates)

The details on this one will take a while to shake out.

Active Shooter Reported at Ohio State University Campus, 8 People Transported to Nearby Hospitals; Suspect Dead
Authorities have swarmed the Ohio State University campus in Columbus, Ohio, where an active shooter was reported this morning. One suspect is dead, according to the Columbus Department of Public Safety. Authorities are continuing to search for other possible suspects.

Funny thing, though…

Cops kill at least one suspect in Ohio State University active shooter lockdown
CBS Columbis affiliate WBNS reports the incident began around 9:30 a.m. when firefighters were responding to reports of a chlorine leak at the chemical engineering building. Someone had run a vehicle into the building, and then someone started attacking people inside the building with a knife. (emphasis added – cb)

A “shooter” with a knife. Chlorine leak.

If I were to actively speculate at this point, I’d suspect that the “three or four shots” reported by HLN were the cops taking down the knife-wielder. And I’d wonder if the eight people hospitalized were there for chlorine exposure rather than “gun shot” or knife wounds.

But now that lamestream muddia has latched onto the idea of another evil gun, they’ll be forever correcting their reports.

Added: As seen at the Drudge Report:

Update 2: Go figure.

Ten people were taken to hospitals and one suspect was dead after a chaotic car-and-knife attack at Ohio State University on Monday morning, officials said.

The incident was initially reported as an “active shooter” situation, but the suspect did not shoot anyone. Instead, he crashed their car into a crowd and attacked victims with a knife, witnesses and law enforcement officials told NBC News.

Update 3: Moms Demand Gun Victims are struck speechless by horrified shock that aggressor didn’t use a gun.

They haven’t had anything to say about this since it turned out that the shooter used an edged weapon. I’m sure they’re readying an apology to their supporters and asking for prayers for better luck next time.

Update 4: Motive?

The suspect’s name was not released, but law enforcement officials told NBC News he was an 18-year-old Ohio State student, a Somali refugee who was a legal permanent resident of the United States.

The motive was unknown, but officials said the attack was clearly deliberate and may have been planned in advance.

I’m a-thinkin’ “workplace violence”.

Update 5: Nope, no pattern there.

Law enforcement officials told NBC News the suspect’s name is Abdul Razaq Ali Artan, an 18-year-old student at the university. He was a Somali refugee who left his homeland with his family in 2007, lived in Pakistan and then came to the United States in 2014 as a legal permanent resident of the United States, officials said.

The motive was unknown, although law enforcement sources said Artan posted a rant on social media prior to the incident.

Definitely “workplace violence.”

Donald Trump’s media summit was a ‘f—ing firing squad’
“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.”

Even as a SMOD supporter, I can’t imagine why these idiots went into a meeting with the Oompa Loompa expecting a safe space. Kinda makes me wish I were going to be Prez so I could tell ’em what I think. A read of my novel Net Assets might give you a hint. It wouldn’t be pretty.

Short day today

Just a quick post. I have to get outside and finish some work before the sun sets early.

Yes. The idiot weather man on Jacksonville’s channel 4 just informed us that the sun will set early today. No doubt physicists, astronomers, and theologians everywhere will be debating the mechanics and meaning of this strange event.

Frickin’ hairspray addicted TV bobbleheads…

WTF? Liability in Tennessee

I’ll confess to being a little confused. I understood from every report that Tennessee SB 1736 made the posted property owner liable, but that’s absolutely not the case.

(a) A person, business, or other entity that owns, controls, or manages property and has the authority to prohibit weapons on that property by posting, pursuant to§ 39-17-1359, shall be immune from civil liability with respect to any claim based on such person’s, business’s, or other entity’s failure to adopt a policy that prohibits weapons on the property by posting pursuant to§ 39-17-1359.

It specifically GRANTS immunity from liability.
