UPDATE AT BOTTOM (May have resolved the whole discrepancy)
Greg, at Your Daddy’s Politics, found an interesting video that I am going to repost here. The Medical Examiner claims that every person that was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was shot with the .223 Bushmaster rifle. However, video evidence shows that that gun was never in the school and was in fact retrieved from the car that the shooter drove to the school.
The media always does a terrible job with these shootings. They havent adapted well to the 24/7 Twitter news demand and the result is they botch all the important details. Remember NPR reporting that Gabby Giffords had died?
The video takes the audience through the discrepancies regarding the reports on the actual guns. First, it was 2 handguns and 1 assault rifle, then it was 4 guns. What is the “official” claim now? But the bombshell is when the Medical Examiner says everyone was killed with the .223 Bushmaster, the weapon that never made it into the school; according to videotape showing the police taking it out of the trunk. Watch below and turn your speakers up. The audio of the Medical Examiner is a little lower than the rest of the video.
At least this time ABC didnt come on air and say they had found someone in the Tea Party with the same name. But that isnt because they learned their lesson from doing that on Aurora, there just wasnt a matching name of any Tea Party member this time.
UPDATE: @tahdeets may have solved it. The gun in the trunk of the car may have been a shotgun. In the video above you see the officer cocking it repeatedly. That could be to unload/cycle the shells
A literary snob will read that headline and think “Ho ho, another blogger attempts to be an intellectual but falls short. I shall L-O-L for the moment”. What that snob fails to realize is that “OUR Walmart” charges money, and those “lending” their money to the organization will be paid back. The reward they promise to deliver is so great that those paying into the cause are in fact “shylocks” themselves. For a small amount of money they get in return something nearly priceless; the oppurtunity to begin the tearing down of almost unparalleled success. Your money buys an alliance with the CPUSA. From there the project is on cruise-control
My colleague at CRO, Mike Madden, (Twitter: here) has done a fantastic job at exposing this group. Nothing I can say here regarding OUR Walmart, unions, the attempt to destroy Walmart from within (by in effect, socializing it) can do it justice. I must in fact refer you to the post. No matter where your political philosophy falls on the scales, an intelellectually honest person should read this and have questions of their own. If you don’t, reread it. Link to the post below
End Note: I actually had a brief conversation on Twitter yesterday with someone who outright said that freedom was a bad thing and would rather have Chinese families not work in factories that make goods for Walmart. I am going to follow up with a detailed post on the difference between the families who have that opportunity and the families that do not. The contrast could not be sharper and the results…well, lets jsut say that anyone that would choose to take that chance away from the family is as cold as toes in Siberia.
Barrett Brown Indictment released today. Brown was arrested for what seems to be threatening law enforcement agents. (Allegedly of course) Be careful what you ask for because in Barrett’s case…he got it. By use of his Twitter account he finally lost it and transformed into the ultimate internet tough guy; invited law enforcement to come get him. They did.

If its your first time here check the Barrett Brown category. I have a unique experience with this jerk from him threatening to turn my life upside down, calling him out for associating with a known loser/wannabe law enforcement, him accusing me of hacking his Skype chats and posting them on Youtube, and more! Barrett didnt get away with threatening me and he shouldve learned his lesson. Instead he became more confident and threatened law enforcement. Enjoy prison.
Note to Barrett: The arrests for the threats were just to get you into custody. Now they will write up the indictments for the more serious charges they really wanted to put on you. Since you were a flight risk they took the opportunity to eliminate that variable in order to ensure full prosecution; convictions or even accepting a plea deal is always easier for the prosecuting attorney when the defendant is in custody.
