Report: FBI figures tweaked to show phony increase in mass shootings

Report: FBI figures tweaked to show phony increase in mass shootings

FBI Logo 2

Crime stats published by the FBI and relied upon by the media distort the gun violence and leave the public with the impression “mass shooting” incidents are a much bigger threat than they really are, according to a criminologist and Second Amendment scholar.

The bureau’s annual reports tabulating and classifying a wide range of crime throughout the nation have been historically free of politics, but John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, said the latest statistics contain numbers that are misleading at best and deliberately fudged at worst. Lott believes the numbers may have been presented to overstate for political purposes the true risk of being a victim of random gun crimes.

“The FBI put out a clearly incorrect set of numbers on public shootings shortly before the November election last year,” said Lott, a frequent opinion writer for and author of “More Guns, Less Crime.” “I have been reading FBI reports for 30 years and I have never seen anything like this. It is one thing for the Bureau of Justice Statistics or the National Institute of Justice to put out politically biased studies, but there has always been a Chinese wall separating the FBI raw data collection from political pressures.”

Asked for comment, Katherine Schweit, the FBI’s section chief of the bureau’s Active Shooter Initiative, said only Tuesday night that its report isolates active shooter incidents and evaluates available data based on methodology detailed on the FBI’s official website. SOURCE

I am going out on that limb again; I am not totally convinced that the FBI is at fault here, not because I’m afraid of the FBI but because I am 100% convinced that the media is skewing stories, reposting stories, changing a word or 2 here and there and making it appear to be a new and different story. It’s enough to confuse the best statistician.

I also believe that if the FBI has misstated the numbers it was done at the behest of the DOJ itself on orders from Attorney General Eric Holder and Barack Hussein Obama.

If you are a Conservative, gun owning American, TEA Party member, NRA member, a Republican or even a gun owning Democrat you already know; the regime of Obama is the most anti-gun in the history of this nation and has been since Day 1.  Continue reading

Rep. Peter King says he’ll jump off bridge if Ted Cruz is nominated

Rep. Peter King says he’ll jump off bridge if Ted Cruz is nominated

Obviously Rep. Peter King never heard Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment, “Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican.

King, R-N.Y., appeared on CNN’s “The Situation Room” Monday to give his opinion on Ted Cruz’s announcement that he would be seeking the Republican nomination for president in 2016 election.

He wasn’t flattering.

“We need intelligent debate in the country. Ted Cruz may be an intelligent person, but he doesn’t carry out an intelligent debate,” King told host Wolf Blitzer.

“He oversimplifies, he exaggerates and he basically led the Republican Party over the cliff in the fall of 2013. He has shown no qualifications, no legislation being passed, doesn’t provide leadership and he has no real experience. So, to me, he is just a guy with a big mouth and no results.” SOURCE

Jump you egotistical bastard… JUMP! Do a flip on the way down so there can be some added entertainment value.

As I said in yesterday’s post, Ted Cruz is in the race for President; “Ted Cruz may not be perfect and before this is over we’re going to have a lot of frogs in this race before we crown a prince, but Cruz deserves a chance to have his voice heard and his ideas given FAIR consideration, or we go with the GOP status quo and lose again.”

I am NOT a Republican and I have NO PROBLEM with speaking ill OF a Republican, I am an America 1st Conservative, I am not a Democrat, I am not a TEA Party person, I am that which the GOP, Dems and TEA Party fear; a reasonably well educated, gun owning Texas redneck that doesn’t need to be told what to do and I damned sure WILL NOT be talked down to by these Republicans that think they have the answer to all the problems facing this nation.

Ted Cruz is in the race for President

Ted Cruz is in the race for President

Gun LegislationHere I go again; telling the truth about the GOP and calling it like it is, and as usual, I don’t give a damn who gets offended either.

The National GOP is its own worst enemy. Until the GOP becomes the REAL GOP again, the Party of Reagan, it will continue to lose elections to those that have NO BUSINESS being in office.

The GOP, the Mainstream GOP, is afraid of Ted Cruz, Conservatives and what remains of the TEA Party. GOP Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) compares Cruz to a ‘sideshow entertainer’.

The DNC and Libbers as a whole are terrified of Ted Cruz. Do you know why? Have you ever taken a look at the resume of Ted Cruz?

Cruz and the GOP

Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 – May 2008, Cruz was the first Hispanic Solicitor General in Texas, the youngest Solicitor General in the entire country, and had the longest tenure in Texas history.

Partner at the law firm Morgan, Lewis and Bockius, where he led the firm’s U.S. Supreme Court and national appellate litigation practice.

Cruz has authored 80+ SCOTUS briefs and presented 40+ oral arguments before The Court.

Cruz served as a law clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist. Cruz was the first Hispanic ever to clerk for a Chief Justice of the United States.

Described as a ‘superb’ constitutional lawyer.

In the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Cruz assembled a coalition of 31 states in defense of the principle that the 2nd Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms.

Cruz presented oral argument for the amici states in the companion case to Heller before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.  Continue reading
