Former President Barack Obama delivered what began as a heartfelt note of condolence to the victims of Sunday’s tragic mass church shooting. Then he ruined it by politicizing the event with a call for gun control.
He should have stopped after his first tweet. Although he didn’t come right out and say it, his implication was transparent: Guns are the problem. These remarks came out as the casualties were still being counted and the wounds of the injured were being treated.
Like many on the left, Obama’s post-shooting policy suggestions are vague. That’s because it’s hard to control homicidal shooters with laws. Early evidence suggests that the Texas shooter shouldn’t have legally had access to firearms.
If the left wants to suggest specific gun control measures, that’s their right. But the time to do it isn’t while the smoke is still clearing. It’s basic decency; let the victims grieve before politicizing their hurt. Better yet, don’t politicize tragedies at all. (Read More…)
Harry Dreyfuss says that embattled actor Kevin Spacey groped him in his apartment in London during a script reading – with his famous father, actor Richard Dreyfuss present, but unknowing.
Dreyfuss was just 18 when the incident occurred. He wrote that he and his father were in Spacey’s apartment rehearsing lines for a play that Spacey was directing when Spacey put his hand on the teenager’s thigh. Dreyfuss couldn’t believe what was happening. He moved away twice, but Spacey followed.
Dreyfuss continued, “Once again Kevin followed me, sat down, and with considerable effort, slid his hand between my right hand and my right leg. Over the course of about 20 seconds, centimeter by centimeter, Kevin crawled his hand from my thigh over toward my crotch. My mind went blank. Suddenly, he had completed his journey and now he had all of me in his hand.”
Harry Dreyfuss says his father didn’t see what happened, and he kept the story from him for years. He stated after the article was published that he was speaking out “in the hope predators learn there will always be consequences.” Spacey is currently “seeking treatment” for his issues. But when your issues include sexual assault of teenagers, it’s a matter for the justice system. It’s time for Spacey to be held accountable. (Read More…)
Isam Fathee Mohamed Rahmah, a North Carolina man who used his ice cream truck to lure children for sexual purposes, is now sitting in the Durham County Jail under a $1 million bond. He’s been charged with first-degree kidnapping and indecent liberties with a child, according to Durham police.
A local mother said she believed Rahmah specifically targeted low-income neighborhoods when he was prowling for his victims. She told a reporter on Wednesday that her 9-year-old son mustered up the courage to tell her what happened to him.
The attack on the 9-year-old wasn’t the only one reported to law enforcement. There was at least one other incident that occurred three days later in another neighborhood. The van may once have been his residence, but his letters can now be forwarded to the Durham County Jail. (Read More…)
Actor Corey Feldman, who is working to expose Hollywood’s pedophilia problem, claims that he has received death threats, was almost “run down by two trucks,” and was even pulled over by police on drug charges in an attempt to keep him quiet.
In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, you’d think Hollywood would want to stand behind the innocent victims of sexual harassment and assault. But that doesn’t seem to be the case at all. Feldman went public with his belief that Hollywood’s biggest problem is its powerful pedophiles in 2016. Since then, he named one of these pedophiles as Cloyd “Jon” Grissom. Feldman says that Grissom purposely drugged him in order to sexually assault him.
Hopefully, Feldman will help reveal other Hollywood monsters before more children can be hurt. (Read More…)
New details reveal that the Texas church gunman, Devin Patrick Kelley, had a disturbing past. Kelley was a former member of the U.S. Air Force who had received a bad conduct discharge in 2014. Two years prior, Kelley had been court-martialed for two counts of assault on his then-wife and child.
Although authorities have remained quiet about what inspired the shooter to kill over twenty worshippers, a disturbing picture is starting to emerge — circumstantial evidence points towards religious hatred as one possible motivation, along with his documented history of domestic violence. His Facebook wall was covered in atheist messages and material attacking Christians. He has also been accused of stalking and harassment by former girlfriends.
Democrats are already using the tragedy to call for gun control. America needs to take a long hard look at our problem with violence. For hundreds of years, Americans have been armed. Yet mass shootings are a distinctly modern problem. What went wrong? Are the institutions that bind our society together fundamentally broken? (Watch Here…)
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul was assaulted at his Bowling Green home on Friday in an incident that left the Republican congressman with five broken ribs. Original reports cited neighbors as saying that Paul and attacker Rene Boucher had an ongoing feud, but the reports now claim that the assault was “politically motivated.”
It seems the attacks on conservatives aren’t just confined to the walls of the Capitol. The FBI has announced an investigation, but so far has not publically confirmed the motive. Paul’s assailant, 59-year-old Rene Boucher, is a registered Democrat.
While Paul has characterized the entire attack as an “unfortunate event,” and taken the assault in stride, he has suffered significant injuries that some reports claim could have been “life-threatening.” Let’s hope that Boucher is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for his disgusting actions. Our best wishes for swift healing go out to Senator Paul and his family. (Read More…)
