Since the Orlando terror attack, many media outlets have rushed to blame a lack of gun laws for the tragedy. And the calls for increased gun regulation have amplified…

Independent Journal Review chose to get the perspective of someone who had also experienced an American tragedy firsthand.

We talked to Kris Paronto, an ex-Army Ranger, who survived the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The Hollywood film “13 Hours: Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” is based off his and his teammates’ harrowing experiences on the ground.

Paronto didn’t mince words about Orlando or those who rush to blame guns for what is being called the worst mass shooting on American soil ever.

Paronto said:

“It has nothing to do with the weapons that were used. It has to do with the ideology involved with the attacker. Whether he got trained in the states or got his ideology online, the weapons system makes no difference at all.

If I would have been in the nightclub with a M4 or M16 I would have shot the guy before he killed 49 people. The media is trying to demonize the weapon in the name of gun control.

Look, a weapon system is a tool like a hammer. It’s like anything else. In the wrong hands it can be used to hurt people and in the right hands — it’s a hammer.

In every one of these countries where they are terrorists, they have guns. I’ve been to these areas and seen what the jihadis are capable of. And they may be armed with an AK-47, but it’s their belief system and ideology that kills people. The AK-47 doesn’t fire itself.”

Paronto continued:

“Mateen went after a group that he knew was going to be an easy target. I don’t get why liberals keep spinning this into a gun control issue. Maybe it’s because the president can’t say it.

This is terrorists killing innocent people. He would have got that gun in any way. I’ve been around it in Benghazi and elsewhere. I’ve killed terrorists.

It’s always the ideology that drives them to squeeze the trigger or strap a bomb to their chest.

So we need to wake up and figure this out. Or they will be more attacks and we will have more tragedies like Orlando.

We need to have armed security in these places. I’ll stand at a door with a gun. I did it for ten years. It may make people uncomfortable in the club. But guess what, you’re going to go home alive.”

He took a shot at anyone politicizing Orlando:

“The politicizing of Orlando pisses me off. It’s less than human. The reason being is because people died that night and that’s where the focus needs to be. So we need to look at what took place and mourn.

It’s time to heal and making such a tragedy all about blaming the weapon is disgusting. Anyone trying to use it for political gain is worthless.”

A leader doesn’t go on TV and politicize. They take a breath, go in the back room and figure out exactly what happened.”

Then, Paronto told me what he wants the “liberal media” to know more than anything else:

“As the media is demonizing the weapon system in Orlando, they have no idea that if they were under attack, I would pick up a gun.

And I would stand right in front of them and take a bullet. And I’d try to take down as many bad guys as I could even if I was outmatched.”

Paronto concluded, “Because it’s the right thing to do. The American thing to do…”

“And because it’s what I was trained to do as a Ranger — protect the lives of others who are unable to protect themselves.”

After 9/11, Saudis Had Huma Abedin-Connected Group Removed from Terror List

Socialism is not the Answer

huma_hillary_7_ap_605_605-548x297

Free Republic

Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin has deep and, so far, unexplained connections to a Saudi Arabian man who ran a Saudi organization that U.S. intelligence connected to terror funding during both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush’s administrations, but escaped scrutiny after pressure from the Saudi Arabian government.

Details about the group called the Muslim World League were originally published in 2001 and 2004, but their significance was not fully clear until recently, with Huma Abedin acting as co-chairwoman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Although Abedin has made headlines in recent months for her central role in the Hillary Clinton email server scandal, as well as a Showtime movie that highlights her husband, disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner’s failed New York mayoral bid, Abedin has managed to avoid any serious scrutiny from the press. However, given the clear danger posed by Islamist terror groups like the…

WHEN IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH? – Tea Party Nation

Posted by Bruce Davis

In the never ending saga of Liberal stupidity and deliberate and continual lying to the American people our idiot president Obama has just said there is no clear evidence that the shooter in Orlando was directed by ISIS. Guess he missed all those internet calls from ISIS and other Muslim terrorists to target soft targets in the US that were also reported in the media. He must have been on one of his many vacations, out playing golf, campaigning or is still not reading his Presidential Daily Briefing papers because he is so smart, in his own mind, that nobody can tell him anything he does not already know. I thought he got all his news from the TV, so how did he miss this since even the left wing media mentioned these threats? By Obama’s rationale I guess that we can now also believe that, despite the facts, that there is no clear evidence that Obama is a Muslim terror supporter and/or that there is no clear evidence that he has an IQ no higher than a turnip.

Furthermore he is now beating the gun control bandwagon once again despite the fact that the shooter fully complied with gun laws and the primary reason he was able to buy a gun was two separate slipshod investigations of his threats to kill by his own FBI who after the last investigation actually removed him from a list which would have been triggered when he tried to buy any guns.  Additionally his continual threatening behavior on the job which should have resulted in being reported to the authorities and being terminated apparently was not done by his employer due to fear of being labeled racists by both the government and the self appointed PC police. One former employee reported he quit his job with the same company due to being threatened by the shooter when nothing was done by the employer.  His former wife also reported his propensity for violence to the authorities, however apparently nothing was done about this domestic violence.  Normally incidents of domestic violence like that reported should have resulted in him being arrested and then not being able to either purchase any guns or even use a gun in his job as a security person.  BTW as a former Florida police chief I am aware that Florida law does not even require the spouses approval to make an arrest.  In fact, officers are mandated to make an arrest of the aggressor in domestic violence cases so, if the situation is as reported. it seems clear someone in local law enforcement screwed up big time by not doing what the law required.

BTW here we go again with the “gun free” zones that Liberal legislators keep falsely saying make us safe. Hello Mr. and Ms. stupid Liberal. Criminals and terrorists are not impressed by your laws making so many locations gun free zones. They don’t give a damn! Virtually every single mass shooting, including this latest one in Orlando, that has occurred in the US is the past 20-30 years occurred in a so-called “gun free zone” so these deaths can be blamed directly on you. To give you an idea of the idiocy of these laws in my current state of residence any business open to the public can post the business as a “gun free zone” which makes it a crime for a CCW holder to be armed on their premises. In addition to the gun having to be stored in a vehicle where it might be stolen the permit holder is defenseless should a criminal or terrorist decides to target that location. Unbelievably the Federal law, 18 USC 926b (The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act) that permits retired police officers, who annually qualify at the range, to carry concealed weapons also prohibits them from carrying in these “gun free zones”. Since this act was supposedly passed to allow officers to protect themselves from violent criminals they had arrested before retiring the logic of this provision in the law escapes me and makes the title of the law kind of ridiculous. Shows the lack of intelligence and logic of our elected officials, doesn’t it?

Obama is also now stating we must change. Excuse me, but maybe instead the Muslims need to change and stop killing anyone not a Muslin. I am sick and tired of this jerk, other Liberals and even some RINO’s lecturing us on what it is to be a true American. In fact, I am livid at the hubris and arrogance of Obama and these self appointed guardians of our conduct.  Sorry, but anyone who still supports this scumbag with his PC, BS support of Muslims or still thinks he is capable of competently running this country is also either an complete brain dead idiot or a bigger scumbag than Obama.

Obama intends to permit tens of thousands of unscreenable Muslims in to our country in the near future. My bottom line question is just how far are the American people who are victimized by this idiocy going to let this go on? Just how many people need to be killed and maimed before something effective is done or are we going to be like the Jews who let themselves be slaughtered in the WWII concentration camps of Nazi Germany? Furthermore, even more importantly, are we going to continue to stand by and reelect the equally despicable legislators who repeatedly refused to fulfill their Constitutional duty to impeach Obama for his egregious illegal conduct and to change these stupid “gun free zone” laws which have been passed by both the Federal government and most states.

Another Shooting Tragedy in a Gun-Free Zone

International Liberty

It’s happened again. A nut went to a gun-free zone and engaged in a mass killing.

In this example, the perpetrator apparently was an Islamic fanatic upset about gay people.

But let’s set aside the question of motive and ask the important question of why politicians and bureaucrats don’t want innocent people to have any ability to defend themselves (they’ve even adopted policies prohibiting members of the military from being armed!).

The invaluable Crime Prevention Research Center has already weighed in on the issue.

Since at least 1950, only slightly over 1 percent of mass public shootings have occurred where general citizens have been able to defend themselves. Police are extremely important in stopping crime, but even if they had been present at the time of the nightclub shooting, they may have had a very difficult time stopping the attack. Attackers will generally shoot first at any uniformed guards…

Obama’s Victims: Released Criminal Illegals Commit Rape, Murder, Molestation

Socialism is not the Answer

The astronomical re-offense rate of the predators the president sets loose in our communities.

Family Security Matters

by Michael Cutler

On June 4, 2016 the Boston Globe published a report, “Criminal immigrants reoffend at higher rates than ICE has suggested,” that focused on information the newspaper was finally able to obtain by filing a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act that sought to obtain the database of criminal aliens who were released by ICE.  The roughly five-year odyssey finally yielded the information the administration attempted to conceal from the public, including, incredibly, even law enforcement agencies.

The article included the links to the Timeline of the Globe’s lawsuitIt’s nearly a five-year saga.

This eye-opening report began with this excerpt:

They were among the nation’s top priorities for deportation, criminals who were supposed to be sent back to their home countries. But instead they were released, one by…

Secret Service Says Hillary, “Too erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent” to be President

Socialism is not the Answer

DC Whispers

While Hillary Clinton is out declaring Donald Trump lacks the temperament to be Commander in Chief, a man responsible for protecting her life when she was First Lady has dropped a tell-all bombshell that is now rocking the Clinton campaign – despite the Mainstream Media’s unwillingness to cover it.

“What I saw in the 1990s sickened me.”

The former Secret Service agent’s name is Gary Byrne, a 29-year military and law enforcement veteran.

“Hillary Clinton is now poised to become the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, but she simply lacks the integrity and temperament to serve in the office.”

Though the book, not yet released, is already an Amazon bestseller, the Mainstream Media has given it and its blockbuster insights very little attention.

The Trump campaign has already indicated it intends to use the information in the book on the campaign trail to better explain to…

Thomas Sowell: does affirmative action help minorities to get ahead?

WINTERY KNIGHT

Economist Thomas Sowell Economist Thomas Sowell – the best economist in the world

My favorite economist, Thomas Sowell has an article in Investors Business Daily that explains what affirmative action really does to minorities.

Excerpt:

Affirmative action is supposed to benefit black and other minority students admitted with lower academic qualifications than some white students who are rejected.

[…]Despite much media spin, the issue is not whether blacks in general should be admitted to higher-ranked or lower-ranked institutions.

The issue is whether a given black student, with given academic qualifications, should be admitted to a college or university where he would not be admitted if he were white.

Much research over the years has confirmed… that admitting black students to institutions for which their academic preparation is not sufficient can be making them worse off instead of better off.

I became painfully aware of this problem more than 40 years ago when I was…

The Food Police will make arrests

FOOD POLICE!Freeze!
Drop that salt. Stand up, put your hands on your head and back away from the table.

Sound strange? Obama wants this coming to a restaurant, supermarket and soon YOUR house.

Obama a Sez, I’ll tell you how much salt is good for you

From Article some number in the Constitution, there is a short clause giving the President the authorization to act as the “Chief of Food Police” and by diktat tell you what you can and cannot do with your food. You must have read it at some time, in school or somewhere.

From cheese to sliced turkey, the Obama administration is encouraging food companies and restaurants to lower the amount of salt in the foods they sell.

If the effort is successful, most Americans won’t even notice the change. The idea is to lower sodium levels gradually so consumers’ taste buds can adjust, and…

DOJ Documents Reveal Fast & Furious Weapons Linked to 69+ Killings

Give Me Liberty

This is from AmmoLand.

Barack Obama and Eric Holder are responsible for this failed gun control attempt that lead to these 69+ deaths.

Hopefully Attorney General Trey Gowdy will indite them,try them and send them to prison where they richly deserve to be.

I will go as far to say Obama and Holder belong on death row as accessories after the fact of these murders.

From December 2012 to March 2016, 94 Fast and Furious weapons were seized; Fast and Furious weapon found in “Chapo” Guzman hideout

Obama invites Cuban spies to “‘tour’ American national security facilities”

Socialism is not the Answer

http://kbctv.co.ke/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/OBAMA-CUBA.jpg Image via : kbctv.co.ke

Independent Sentinel

It makes absolutely zero sense to allow spies from a State Sponsor of Terrorism to tour one of our military installations.

Communist Cuba is run by the military and the Cuban Border Guards are controlled by The Interior Ministry. They also operate small coastal artillery garrisons in conjunction with the Cuban Army and Navy as well as joint exercises.

The Cuban Interior Ministry directs the Intelligence Directorate, the political police, and an intelligence service modeled after the Soviet-era KGB intelligence service, Free Beacon reports.

They have very close ties to Russia and Iran.

Why would any US president invite them over “seeking closer ties” by bringing them to some our secure Port facilities?

My belief is because birds of a feather flock together.
