Stress Blessing, Not Blame

It’s a shame that politicians on both sides tried to blame their opponents for the horrific synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh. Liberals attempted to tie the gruesome killing to the president’s harsh language; some Republicans shot back by trying to blame media for the brutal attack.

In perspective, this incident should have provoked gratitude instead of finger-pointing:

First, gratitude for heroic police officers, four of whom were wounded in promptly stopping the killer.

Second, we should feel grateful to America itself. Media reports cited the Pittsburgh horror as the deadliest attack in all of American Jewish history. Our people have lived here peacefully for 364 years, so defining this terrible incident of 11 deaths as the worst ever assault on our faith, shows how uniquely blessed we’ve been in America, and by America.

    “ Our people have lived here peacefully for 364 years” Jacob Schiff, Leon Trotsky(illegal resident from 1914-1917) not included. There’s nothing peaceful about Judaism; it call for genocidal killing of “amalakites,” demands genital mutuliation, endorses slavery, and the real estate broker god of the Jews is jealous and a murderer of innocent Egyptian children. The only good thing about Judaism is that none of that abrahamic nonsense need be believed; its evil nonsense from the minds of primitive sand people.
    The smartest Jews are Swiss and have rejected the disgusting religion of their ancestors to become right wing chemists, engineers and financiers in Basel, Zurich and Geneva

    To misread the economist you low IQ moron.
    Everything I say is 100% true

    Rizzo, Rizzo, there are some people absolutely not worth your time. This anti-Semite, anti-American, anti-anti is obviously one of them. Really, let him go troll other sites; eventually people will get tired of his hate and he'll be like a spoilt 3 year old finding no one listening to his tantrum.

    Then he'll face the horrible, ugly truth: he's not worth anyone's attention.

    • Rizzo  •  Nov 2, 2018 at 7:29 am

      You are right.
      This is his big stage, in his otherwise meaningless existence.
      I mustn’t give him the attention that he so desires.
      Thanks Nani….. keep the knowledge and wisdom flowing!

    “It’s a shame politicians on both sides ……” – have you taken loss of your senses?!!!!!! It’s ONE SIDE MICHAEL but obviously you always take the apologists route — go ahead Mike, just say it, “this is Trump’s fault.” Take the easy road, the cowards path — sure if democrats always illegally bus illegals to 5 precincts every election cycle because of no voter ID, we must encourage more Americans to vote legally—sure works in California doesn’t it! No borders for democrats, right Mike? Bully, beat up, kill republicans — Mike says let’s kiss their ass some more, reach across the aisle, call Obama for a beer-summit, get a voice of reason on the other side like your good buddy Lanny Davis or Keith Olberman. All you need do is read Ty and Arm&Hammer’s comments above to understand the Marxist’s mindset. Mike explains this away by saying they’ve been misled and duped (it’s not their fault they’re facists). Trump fights back WITH WORDS and they blame him for the world coming to an end. Appeasement’s cowardly path is the GOP’s silent answer. Trump is showing you the way but the DC RINO establishment is more than happy to hide until after the election is over and the House is lost — GOP’s answer will be what it always is: “Our hands are tied now, please get us all three branches, uhhh yuhno like, again, and then in 2020 we will close the border, get rid of BOcare and uhhh really cool stuff like that, OK? Republicans hate RINOs, we’re sick of your continuous lies and unwillingness to enforce the rule of law — this is why we hate you!!! We’re helpless out here!!! WTF do you want us to do??? F___ Hamilton, we gave you Trump! Get off your ass and fight for us or go home and suck your thumb in a closet. “…..both sides of the aisle.” BS

      Jim, it’s taken a LONG time, but as I admitted previously , I have come to realize that YOU ARE RIGHT. Nothing showed me the folly of trying to work with Liberals and RINOS like the Kavanaugh situation. It was heartbreaking to realize that half this nation would deny presumption of innocence to certain people, that there is such hatred for people based on their gender and the color of their skin, that there are some who would do anything to win, even sell their decency.

      The time for compromise is over. We are in survival mode.

      • Jim Bird  •  Nov 2, 2018 at 11:09 pm

        Thank you Nani,
        I love your words! We will see what Tuesday brings.
        God bless,

    Medved says both sides because he plays both sides. He was a democrat, now he plays a republican on the radio for a catholic run company(the church is also in “nonprofit healthcare and insurance”. Medved is for the banksters(QE, TARP) he supported all of it. Ask the psycho if predispute arbitration should be ended by law. Ask him about Wells Fargo, forged accounts and tax evasion conspiracies Bank Leumi….hell walk away or hang up

    I will when Obama tells me why he gave the bomb to Iran along with $150 billion and Clinton did the same with North Korea. And not even one new nuke plant for us. Democrats would start killing in streets again if Trump proposed one plant. Any answer to why Bill and BO give nukes to terrorists? It’s really simple even for the simplest of minds — foundation money kickbacks in the billions which they and their prodigy get in their name forever. It’s my tax dollars in their private bank accounts and vote for these Marists genius. BTW, do you ever fact check yourself-it’s quite fun?

  7. Armand  •  Nov 2, 2018 at 12:36 pm

    Everything I’m saying is correct.
    Why would you want a nuke plant for the USA? It’s much cheaper to generate power using methane gas. Nuclear plants need massive subsidies and no utility would ever build one without massive govt subsidized construction assistance.
    Iran having the bomb allows them to more easily destroy the gulf Arab states and their nationalized oil companies. Remember Iran has she’ll bramded stations now and total and she’ll are back in Iran doing projects. The oil companies want to destroy the bankster petrodollar and they’re paying to have Iran do it.

      Hey Dikweed,

      Have you ever heard of global warming? Nuclear power doesn't emit greenhouse gases like fossil fuels.

      Now go back to your cave.

    Oh my God! Yesterday, I flew home from Oakland. As I boarded my plane, I couldn’t help but notice a sign, posted in the jet bridge. It was a warning sign of course, because liberals have to save us all from ourselves. But anyway, the sign was “Prop 65”, which read: WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
    “Known to the state of California”?
    Who are these mad wizards of science?
    What special scientific evidence does California have that is yet unknown to the rest of us?
    What the hell is wrong with California?
    This was yet another glaring example of the lunacy of the left.
    For those who were unaware…. I just thought I would share.
    Have a GREAT WEEK!

    More leftists, biased reporters caught again…

    A reporter unwittingly left a voice mail for a GOP candidate. She was fired for what she said.

  10. Jim Bird  •  Nov 7, 2018 at 1:26 am

    Thank you Michael for all your help in overthrowing the government. Now it’s full speed ahead to impeach Trump, violence in the streets is the new norm, Marxism is in full swing. Maybe Pelosi will run for White House in 2020. Start campaigning for her now Mike, that disgusting man in the White House will be gone. Like you always say, a social democratic monarchy ain’t so bad, the Constitution is passé. The lowest forms of rodents in the House are on parade now. Get Lannie on your show tomorrow, it’s time to celebrate!!!
