DOJ has already determined a motive.
Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch released the following statement on yesterday’s attack in Colorado Springs, Colorado:
“This unconscionable attack was not only a crime against the Colorado Springs community, but a crime against women receiving healthcare services at Planned Parenthood, law enforcement seeking to protect and serve, and other innocent people. It was also an assault on the rule of law, and an attack on all Americans’ right to safety and security. Justice Department attorneys, the FBI, and the ATF are on the scene to offer assistance and review the situation.
“We stand ready to offer any and all assistance to the District Attorney and state and local law enforcement as they move forward with their investigation. And in the days ahead, our thoughts and prayers will be with the victims of this horrific attack – including Officer Garrett Swasey, who gave his life in order to keep others safe. We wish a speedy recovery for those who were injured, and peace and strength for the loved ones of the fallen.”

It is going to take more than a fence to stop the Hijrah.
Police in Macedonia fired tear gas and stun grenades at desperate migrants stranded for days at the Greek border and who are demanding passage to western Europe, as soldiers began erecting a metal fence to keep them out.
Macedonia, along with other Balkan countries on the migrant route, began turning away “economic migrants” nearly two weeks ago. Human rights groups have criticized the decision, under which only Syrians, Iraqis and Afghans are allowed through.
The new restrictions triggered days of protests from Iranians, Pakistanis, Moroccans and others, stranded in squalid tent camps on the border. Some Iranians have sewn their lips shut. One man on Saturday threw himself on railway lines before the police, screaming and flailing.
Saturday’s violence broke out after one migrant, believed to be a Moroccan, was electrocuted and badly burned when he climbed on top of a train wagon.
An angry crowd surged towards lines of Macedonian police and began throwing stones, a Reuters photographer at the scene said.
The police responded with tear gas and stun grenades, driving the crowd back, a Reuters photographer at the scene said. Some officers threw stones.
In a surge that began about 18 months ago, migrants have been flowing across Balkan borders, having landed by boat in Greece from Turkey.
Human rights groups say international conventions require countries to treat asylum requests on merit, not on the basis of nationality.
Did you hear of this story? I’m betting not. I found it only because I saw someone using it to rebut the current leftist talking point: that white people who shoot at people, like the Colorado Springs shooter, managed to be taken alive by police, but that black people who do less are shot, because of course, racism. Of course, you can tell them that every situation is different, but it goes right over their heads. So here, these scummy dudes that would shoot at a bus with a bunch of children in it, they were taken alive.
Three men have been charged with driving through Jones County shooting at vehicles, one of those was a school activity bus with children on board.
Quinton Mceachin of Pollocksivlle, Azario Frost of Maysville, and Cordero Foy, of Maysville, are facing numerous charges after their arrest on Sunday.
Jones County deputies say Mceachin was driving the vehicle that was eventually stopped after a chase by Maysville police and deputies.
The activity bus was from Pamlico County and was hit by the gunfire, but no children were hurt.
It happened on U.S. 17 around 5:30 p.m. Detectives say there were 13 students and two adults on the bus. They say the bullet disabled the bus when it struck the radiator.
Mceachin is facing charges of driving while impaired, felony conspiracy, discharge a barreled weapon, flee/elude arrest with a motor vehicle, reckless driving, felony hit and run with personal injury, felony discharging weapon into a moving vehicle, and several traffic violations. His bond was set at $250,000.
Frost was charged with discharging weapon into occupied property, felony conspiracy, discharge a barreled weapon, felony discharge a weapon into a moving vehicle, and felony possession of a firearm by felon. The man’s bond was $125,000.
Foy is facing charges of discharging a weapon into occupied property, possession of a firearm by felon, discharge a barreled weapon, assault with a deadly weapon and felony discharge of a weapon into occupied dwelling/moving vehicle. A magistrate set Foy’s bond at $100,000
Biden is jealous, ice cream is his territory.
President Obama celebrated Small Business Saturday by buying books and ice cream.
Saturday afternoon, Obama and his daughters Malia and Sasha drove out from the White House to visit Upshur Street Books in northwest Washington, D.C., according to pool reports. Obama had visited Politics and Prose bookstore in each of the past three Small Business Saturdays.
All three Obamas walked out with books in tow, including the historical fiction/adventure Kingdom by Cynthia Voigt, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck, Book 8, by Jeff Kinney, Dork Diaries 1: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life by Rachel Renee Russell. They also picked up Purity, a novel by Jonathan Franzen, which according to its Amazon product description is about “youthful idealism, extreme fidelity and murder,” and focuses in part on a struggling young girl named Purity who is “saddled with $130,000 in student debt” and works for an organization that “traffics in all the secrets of the world.”
Internet Pranksters 4 Chan Join Fight Against ISIS By Photoshopping Duck Heads On Them, ‘Allahu Quackbar!”

Internet pranksters have joined the war against ISIS by photoshopping pictures of ducks on the heads of well-known Jihadis.
Mocking the battle cry of Allahu Akbar, they decided to change it to Allahu Quackbar in an effort to use satire against the Jihadi monsters.
Subversive internet group 4chan began the satire attempt by digitally manipulating ISIS propaganda photographs to ridicule the jihadis
Chicago Black Gang Member Charged In Shooting; Lured Tyshawn Lee From Playground And Executed Him In An Alleyway In Revenge For Another Attack…
The code of the street matters. Update to this story.
Via Daily Mail:
Three gangsters allegedly lured Tyshawn Lee to his death after spotting the nine-year-old in a playground following weeks of searching for a victim to exact revenge on for another gang-related attack.
Investigators claim Corey Morgan, 27, and two other men went out armed every day looking for potential targets after a shooting by a rival gang in October killed his brother and injured his mother.
Morgan – who was charged with first-degree murder on Friday – said he ‘was going to kill grandmas, mamas, kids and all,’ according to court documents.
One of the three men approached Tyshawn – possibly because of his father’s alleged gang affiliation – after seeing him put his basketball down as he climbed onto swings in a playground, prosecutors said.
The man led Tyshawn down a nearby alley while two other men followed in an SUV, investigators allege.
The nine-year-old was shot three times at close range, including once to the head and once in the back.
The third bullet severed the top of the boy’s right thumb, suggesting he tried to block the gunshots, his autopsy found.
Morgan was questioned earlier this month and was re-arrested and charged with murder on Friday. His attorney Jonathan Brayman said Morgan ‘absolutely denies’ being involved in the fourth-grader’s death.
Of the two other men, one is in custody on a gun charge and remains unidentified.
Meanwhile police are looking for Kevin Edwards, who investigators believe was involved with the shooting.
Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said the three men’s precise roles were still under investigation, but that they were all members of the same gang.
‘They’re going to be obliterated. That gang just signed its own death warrant,’ McCarthy said on Friday. ‘We’re going to go and destroy that gang.’
Bizarre Internet Video Shows ISIS Training By Kicking Each Other In The Crotch And Playing Leap Frog…
Pretty much contributes to them being mentally whacked out.
Via Daily Mail:
Bizarre new footage from a jihadi terror training camp has emerged showing ISIS fighters playing playground games like leap frog and forming a human pyramid.
The 14 minute video also shows one strange exercise where the training instructor kicks each recruit in the genitals and thighs to test their strength.
The jihadi group claim the training camp was in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, where ISIS have been trying to develop splinter franchises.
It appears Harry Reid has chosen his successor.
We now know that the Kochs have created a secret operation to spy on Democratic opponents. We know that they have given millions to anti-gay and anti-choice groups. We know that they will stop at nothing to buy our elections.
This isn’t okay — and time is running out to stop them. We’re just 48 hours from our deadline to reach $50,000. Make a contribution to stop the Koch brothers’ influence and take back our democracy.
What’s just as crazy is that the Kochs have spent the past year trying to convince Americans that they are “socially liberal” — something we know is far from the truth. Charles and David Koch are trying to change their public image by tricking everyone into thinking they aren’t attacking LGBT and women’s rights.
But we can’t let the Koch brothers get away with these lies. We have just two days left until our deadline, and we’re counting on you.
Give $5 or whatever you can to help us hit our November goal.

This guy shouldn’t even have bail.
Via The Journal:
BRITISH RADICAL PREACHER Anjem Choudary, who faces charges for inviting support for the Islamic State group through social media, returned to jail today after breaking his bail terms, according to court authorities.
The 48-year-old Choudary, who has been frequently interviewed by British and US media on his views on Islam and the Middle East, was arrested in August but was granted bail on 4 September, pending a trial to be held in January.
But London’s Westminster court revoked his bail after he was seen meeting a person he was “precluded from contacting”.
A win for the First Amendment.
A Florida gun shop owner who was sued by the Council on American-Islamic Relations for declaring his store a “Muslim Free Zone” has been vindicated by a federal court.
Andrew Hallinan, owner of Florida Gun Supply in Inverness, was sued by CAIR’s Florida chapter after he made the declaration in a YouTube video in July.
On Tuesday U.S. District Court Judge Beth Bloom said Hallinan, who teamed up with George Zimmerman to raise funds for his legal defense, was within his First Amendment rights to make the statement, according to the American Freedom Law Center who represented Hallinan in the case.
“The general desire of [CAIR] in this case to have Muslims able to access [Florida Gun Supply’s] shooting range someday in the future is insufficient . . . There are simply no facts grounding the assertion that [CAIR] and/or one of its constituents will be harmed—[CAIR] has failed to allege when and in what manner the alleged injuries are going to occur,” the court ruled.
In the statement released Tuesday by AFLC it declared “Florida Gun Supply will not serve “[a]nyone who is either directly or indirectly associated with terrorism in any way.”
In other news, the Washington Redskins logo is offensive.
Cleo Pablo married her longtime partner when gay weddings became legal in Arizona and looked forward to the day when her wife and their children could move into her home in the small Native American community outside Phoenix where she grew up.
That day never came. The Ak-Chin Indian Community doesn’t recognize same-sex marriages and has a law that prohibits unmarried couples from living together. So Pablo voluntarily gave up her tribal home and now is suing the tribe in tribal court to have her marriage validated.
“I want equal opportunity,” Pablo said. “I want what every married couple has.”
Pablo’s situation reflects an overlooked story line following the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic decision this year that legalized gay marriages nationwide: American Indian reservations are not bound by the decision and many continue to forbid gay marriages and deny insurance and other benefits.
The reasons vary and to some extent depend on cultural recognition of gender identification and roles, and the influence of outside religions, legal experts say. Other issues like high unemployment, alcoholism and suicides on reservations also could be higher on the priority list, said Ann Tweedy, an associate professor at the Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, who has studied tribes’ marriage laws.
Advocacy groups largely have stayed away from pushing tribes for change, recognizing that tribes have the inherent right to regulate domestic relations within their boundaries.
“Tribal sovereignty is very important to tribes,” Tweedy said. “They don’t want to just adopt what the U.S. does.”
And yet, it is normal in the President’s hometown of Chicago. As we reported yesterday, as of November 23, there have been 2703 shootings which resulted in 440 deaths year-to date in the heavily gun-controlled city. Yet those deaths earn virtually no words from Obama. Why does he only comment on shootings or people that he thinks he can use as a political club?
President Of Portland Lewis & Clark College Denounced For Not being … Clairvoyant, Bows To Student Demands…
He has the backbone of Jell-O.
Via The College Fix:
Lewis & Clark College, a small, private college in Portland, Oregon, played host to one of the latest student demand inanities just before the Thanksgiving holiday.
Students “occupied” President Barry Glassner’s office until, natch, he agreed to their orders, which include acknowledging that the college “is built on land taken from Native Americans.”
He also must make note that the school “honors slave owners, appropriates Native American culture in some of its art and architecture and asserts the legacy of Anglo-American white supremacy.”
One of the catalysts for the event was the alleged attack of an African student on campus.
And get this: Glassner is being ripped by the occupiers for not being a (mis)fortune teller. They want him to apologize for not being on campus during the student’s assault.
That, and he needs to offer a mea culpa for not “speak[ing] out about the incident promptly enough after it happened.”
(Glassner was in Washington DC at the time but returned to the college early after hearing of the incident.)
Tanguy Muvuna, the assaulted African student, claims that three white guys suddenly appeared as he was walking back to his dorm shortly after stepping out for a walk. They proceeded to call him the N-word and rough him up with one of the assailants stating “You are going to die tonight.”
Muvana claims that one of the attackers had tried to pour some sort of liquid into his mouth “from a small bottle.” When he finally broke free from the trio and got back to his dorm, he put his finger down his throat to induce vomiting because he was “unsure what the liquid was he swallowed.”
Now here is where the story causes the proverbial eyebrow to get raised. Muvana, from Rwanda, says he contacted police immediately, but refused to go to the hospital.
Colorado Springs Shooter: Prior Arrests, No Political, Religious Extreme Views Reported, Voter Registration Unaffiliated, Gender Listed As ‘Female’…
The accused Colorado Planned Parenthood shooter lived in a cabin without electricity or running water deep in the mountains of North Carolina and was previously investigated for domestic abuse, animal cruelty and Peeping Tom accusations, his neighbor said.
Robert Lewis Dear — who surrendered Friday afternoon, five hours after he allegedly barricaded himself inside the Colorado Springs clinic — mostly kept to himself, said James Russell, who lived close to Dear on Black Mountain.
But when the 57-year-old did speak, he was scatter-brained and rambled, he said.
“If you talked to him, nothing with him was very cognitive — topics all over place,” Russell said, adding that Dear never commented on religion or abortion.
His voter registration shows that he had no party affiliation, listed as ‘UAF’ for unaffiliated. And, strangely, it lists him as ‘female’.
Not so tough now huh?

Too many competing protests.
Walmart workers were scarce at the much-hyped Black Friday protests against the retailer’s wages and employment policies. Even protesters who didn’t work at the stores were hard to find.
An estimated 50 people showed up at a store in East Green Brush, N.Y., to protest the firing of Walmart employee Thomas Smith earlier this month. Thomas was allegedly let go for redeeming $2 worth of cans and bottles left behind in a shopping cart. Walmart said he was fired because Smith had failed to disclose his prior criminal history when he was hired, a claim Thomas disputed.
A group of about two dozen people delivered a petition to a Walmart store in downtown D.C. calling for higher wages, judging from photos of the event. According to a company spokesman, “one or two” store employees took part in the protest, although nobody at that location was involved. The event was over well before noon.
Reports of other protests were hard to find on newswires, and visits to other Washington-area stores showed no protest activity of any kind.
CONTAINS NAUGHTY LANGUAGE…
He forgot to the leave the shiny side out when he made his tinfoil hat. Update to this story.
Via NY Daily News:
The man who jumped the fence at the White House on Thanksgiving left a suicide note that included a “Star Wars” reference with friends and told his mother she may not see him again.
Joseph Caputo, 22, was apprehended by Secret Service agents after running onto the North Lawn while President Obama and his family were celebrating the holiday. As a result, the White House was put into lockdown. Caputo was charged with unlawful entry.
Caputo had been staying with friends in Virginia and left them a note saying he wanted to die on Nov. 26, court documents show. Caputo also left an audio message for his mother and prepared a will.
“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around us who transform into the Force,” read his note, which includes a “Star Wars” reference.
The Connecticut resident, who appeared in court on Friday, will undergo a psychiatric exam.[…]
“Civil disobedience is not our problem,” Caputo quoted the late social activist Howard Zinn. “Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders … and millions have been killed because of this obedience … Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves … (and) the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem.”
He also shared a “We Are Change” photo about Syria which claimed that ISIS “is a joint creation of the CIA, MOSSAD and the UK as a weapon of FEAR to be used against the global public in order to forcibly gain public support through fearmongering for an invasion of Syria.”
