Via FOX News:

The Daily News reported:

Pope Benedict XVI told pilgrims and tourists in St. Peter’s Square on Sunday that he is praying for the families of the 20 children and six adults who were killed during a shooting rampage at a U.S. school.

Speaking in English, Benedict said he was “deeply saddened by Friday’s senseless violence in Newtown, Connecticut.”

“I assure the families of the victims, especially those who lost a child, of my closeness in prayer,” the pope said in his first public comments on the massacre by a lone gunman. “May the God of consolation touch their hearts and ease their pain.”

    And since Michael the Archangel isn’t going to make an appearance, may the earthly protectors and defenders of the innocent recognize both their responsibility and their power to deter great evil.

    More rational discussion about what we actually ought to do, which includes taking a careful look at our experience and objectively evaluating some preconceptions.

    Good to see that you’ve learned sourcing. The next step is to become a bit more critical about the sources you use.

    ThinkProgress is almost as careless about factual matters as the New York Times. That works fine for fiction, but not so well for reality.

    Sourcing, sourcing.

    “Meet the Press” is on MSNBC, and we all know what they do.

  • valerie

    Sourcing is important.

    You can find any, old, stupid, useless piece of nonsense in the fever swamps. For example, here we have a situation where a white boy kills his mother and then goes an shoots up a predominantly white school, and some moron is going to try to call it racism.


    That particular fever swamp is MSNBC.

    I was just wondering why there is no similar outpouring of grief for the children killed by abortionists? What is the difference if we let children live until they are 6 or 7 years old (the age of the kids killed at Sandy Hook) before they are murdered or if we allow them to be killed while they are in the womb? There are a HUNDRED Sandy Hooks EVERYDAY in the abortuaries of the nation!

    Guliani was the mayor of New York when 911. He went along with the official story coverup and never demanded an investigation. This would be the first concern as the mayor to want no stone unturned and to follow up on all leads especially the dancing jews, the Mossad moving company, Silverstein saying pull it and profiting from his doubled insurance claim, Amdoc and Converse, the 60 Israeli spies and everything that the vidoe missing links brought to light. So Guiliani had to have been in on it.

    Now we have Bloomberg a jewish mayor who is a staunch gun control advocate jumping on the school shooting that just so happened in Lieberman’s home state Connecticut. Lieberman was just made to resign. There is definitely a link hers since Lieberman was also a big gun control advocate.

    So far the jewsmedia has given many different versions to what happened. First they said that his mother was shot at the school then at her home, first they said he used a glock and then he was said to have used an assault rifle. They also are not following up on the second shooter story they gave. Nobody at the school even knows about a Nancy Lanza she never even worked there. This shows that they are in the process of creating the story that best fits their purpose. It is always the same whether it be Waco, the Oklahoma City bombing where they never even talk any more about the bombs that were reported to have been found inside the Mur building. Because the American public seems only to be able to remember the news that is being fed to them at the moment and forgets quickly yesterday’s news they continue to get away with creating stories. Then nothing gets done about any of the lies that they tell. So many swindles that every day there is a new one and the serious resistance is overwhelmed with so many lies that they also get overwhelmed and scatterminded.

    The solution is to get a list of every swindle begin making a list of suspects and compile a data base for the files to be used when the coup attains the leadership role of setting up the Provisional Government that will be needed to sustain order while the councils set up elections that will include people with Nationalist interest and hold the necessary backgrounds in businesess farming and organizational skills necessary to run the Republic. So lets get started. The time is now.
