Special report on attempts to disarm America
It’s now time to for us to look at the Orlando Massacre and to examine the child-like level of hysteria in the media.
THE GUN CONTROLLER’S BLOOD DANCE IS UNDERWAY
The media, politicians, and gun controllers are once again happily dancing in the blood of innocent Americans, as this, they feel, is their best chance to push gun control since the Sandy Hook massacre.
They pulled out their current wish list for gun control and dusted it off: banning AR-15s and other semi-automatic rifles, magazine-size limitations, using the “Terror Watchlist” or some other federal bureaucrat generated list to deny the ability to purchase a firearm indefinitely, Universal Background Checks, confiscations, complete gun bans, and more.
What I have watched is an absolute feeding frenzy in the media, so intense that they’ve dropped all pretenses that gun-confiscation is not the end goal for them. While it’s refreshing to at least hear the truth from the gun grabbers for a change, it reminds us that WE are in a war to protect our gun rights and in fact ALL of our liberties in the Bill of Rights which are now threatened.
POINTING A FINGER IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION REQUIRES GUTS THE MEDIA AND MANY POLITICIANS DON'T HAVE
In the eyes of media and many politicians, ISIS and other terrorist groups aren’t the problem. The actual murderer is not the problem. YOU AND I are the problem. And the best tool for self-defense that was ever created is the problem, too. <eye roll> See:
Why blame gun owners and guns for the massacre? Simple. The media fears that, unlike peaceful American gun owners, ISIS might target them if the media points the finger in the direction of the real problem. So cowering behind their keyboards, the media goes after softer targets that pose no threat of a vicious retaliation.

[Ed’s note: The following letter references the graphic showing Town Center is failing to pay back its debt to taxpayers.]
Please take a look at the annual Assessor's Reports, which separate out "high-rise condos/co-ops". In the FY2008-09 Report, the average assessment for these condos city-wide was $398,400.
The most recent 2016-17 Report lists the average for all high-rise condos at $299,700. So, high-rise condos, city-wide, are still down over -24.7% since 2008. That's all condos, city-wide, including the Town Center Condos.
At current values off -40%, -50% and more, your sample chart more than suggests that the Town Center condos have done far, far worse, than high-rise condos city-wide, and in fact are at least partially responsible for dragging down the City-wide average.

The Real Problem
Let’s go to Baltimore everybody! Well maybe…not.
The Rioting and looting seen on our television screens this week are merely a microcoism into almost every urban big city in America. MAKE NO MISTAKE…It is clearly fueled by radical liberal policies and political corruption.
Baltimore has not had a Republican Mayor since 1967 and Maryland only (2) two Republican Governors since 1969.
The Radical Liberal mindset is clear. Baltimore’s Mayor Rawlings-Blake’s statement to “Give those who wish to destroy….Space to destroy” says it all.
What I, your humble correspondent noticed is “This space to destroy” was of course tax payer buildings, and private citizens loss of life savings.
This IS the typical Radical Liberal mindset.
I did not see the Mayor allowing HER property, HER office building, and HER cars being given “Space to be destroyed”……Just everyone else’s.
Maybe these will resonate with you. Click on [Read More] below for rest of the column
Sometimes an obvious point blows right past us when we are too busy trying to take care of the bills to fully understand what we're hearing.
Case in point. This morning we heard that our CIA Director, John Brennan, declared in a very recent interview that the CIA will never again water board another terror suspect, even if ordered to do so by a US President.
What's the big deal, you ask?
Well, in my mind, the fact that John Brennan converted to Islam some years ago is a very big deal!
Is Brennan's latest declaration on the non-use of water boarding a result of his conversion to Islam? If I were a betting man, I'd have to wager that it most certainly is.
OK, tell me why this angle of the Brussel bombing / shootings is not being covered by the US main stream media (MSM).
Is it because the Brussels / Belgian anti-terror folks couldn't find the Paris shooter / bomber for four months when he had fled to his old neighborhood in Brussels? Think about that. The Paris attack mastermind was living around the corner from his parents' home in Brussels for four months undetected.
Is another reason the US MSM is blocking this reporting angle because Hussein Obama is releasing GITMO terrorists early and watching as they return to the battlefield? Of course it is.
