    93million

     

    From http://dailycaller.com/2017/06/14/mcauliffe-claims-gun-violence-kills-93-million-americans-a-day-video/

    Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe vastly overstated the number of Americans killed by firearms on a daily basis in his call for gun control shortly after Wednesday’s shooting at a congressional Republican event. McAuliffe was asked by a reporter at a press conference on the scene of the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, what more could be done to protect congressmen after Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise and others were wounded by a gunman. “We need to do more to protect all of our citizens. I have long advocated — this is not what today is about — but there are too many guns on the street,” the governor began his response. “We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence,” he confidently asserted, without immediate correction by staff. “I have long talked about this.” WATCH: McAuliffe then gave examples of the kinds of gun restrictions he would like to see put in place. “Background checks, shutting down gunshow loopholes,” he said. “That’s not for today’s discussion, but it’s not just about politicians. We worry about this every day for for all of our citizens.”

    McAuliffe was trying to say before adding in “million” that 93 Americans are killed every day by firearms. That far smaller figure is promoted by the gun control group Everytown and comes from U.S. government research. He later corrected himself to say “93 individuals” after being asked by another reporter on the first number he gave.

     

    2. Nancy Pelosi - Our hearts are broken over the assault that was made, really, on all of us,” she said, “but personally heartbroken over the dea…ah, at what happened to Steve Scalise, our colleague.

    Pelosi appeared to begin to say Scalise’s “death,” when he is very much still alive, but being treated for his heinous injuries. She made the comments to reporters at the Capitol Hill Thursday. “Our thoughts and prayers are with him and Matt Mika,” she added, referring “as they continue with their, the care that they need, but also as we do pay tribute to them, identify with them.” “Use all of our energy, just like sports,” she continued, and all your energy for them to get well. We all have to pray and identify with their concern.” The MedStar Washington Hospital Center released a statement updating the condition of the grievously injured congressman. “Earlier today, Congressman Steve Scalise underwent a second surgery related to his internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg,” the statement read. “He remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours. The Congressman will require additional operations, and will be in the hospital for some time,” it added. “At the request of the family, we will continue to provide periodic updates.”

    Pelosi Blames Trump and GOP ONE DAY After Bernie Supporter Guns Down Republicans Playing Baseball (VIDEO) Cristina Laila Jun 15th, 2017 1:57 pm 187 Comments Just ONE DAY after Republican Congressman Scalise was shot by a radical left-wing Bernie Sanders supporter, Nancy Pelosi attacked Trump and Republicans for creating the hostile environment. Republican Representative Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, and two Capitol Police were shot during baseball practice on Wednesday morning. Scalise was shot in the hip and tried to drag himself off the field after he was shot. The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson was a Bernie supporter who was obsessed with Trump-Russia conspiracy theories. He is now dead. Today Nancy Pelosi blamed Trump and the GOP for the attack. A reporter asked Nancy Pelosi if the affliction and coarsened political behavior equally afflicts the right and the left, Pelosi quickly answered, “NO, I DON’T”, then elaborated by blaming Trump and the Republicans: Pelosi: “It didn’t used to be this way. Somewhere in the 90’s, Republicans decided on a politics of personal destruction as they went after the Clinton’s…and that is what has continued. Pelosi: “When the President says ‘I can shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and nobody would care’, when you have somebody say ‘beat them up and I’ll pay their legal fees’, when you have all the assaults that are made in Hillary Clinton, for them to be so sanctimonious is something that I really am almost sad that I had to go down this path with you because I don’t think it’s appropriate for us to have the fullest discussion of it. It will be for another day.”

    Bernie Sanders isn't self aware at all. He seems to think that Democrats love everyone. 

     

    5. NYT Gabby Giffords and Sarah Palin Redactions

    NYT

     

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is considering suing the New York Times for libel after the Times published a Wednesday editorial falsely accusing her of inciting Jared Lee Loughner to shoot Rep. Gabby Giffords in 2011 even though it has long been established that there has never been any evidence whatsoever linking Palin to the attempted assassination.

    Palin tweeted that a journalist suggested to her on Thursday that the Times “has fulfilled the two criteria for libeling a public figure”—a reckless disregard for the truth and malice.

    She said she is “talking to attorneys this AM and exploring options.”

     

    (1/2) @nytopinion - commonsense suggestion by a journalist, am talking to attorneys this AM and exploring options. BTW, wonder..

     

    (2/2) ...WHY someone would no longer be in public eye? Think constant libel & slander have anything to do with it? 🤔

     

     

    After James T. Hodgkinson, who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and hated President Donald Trump and Republicans, shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and targeted other Republicans as they were practicing for their Congressional baseball game, the Times decided to publish an editorial on Wednesday in which it falsely blamed Palin for the assassination attempt on Giffords:

    Was this attack evidence of how vicious American politics has become? Probably. In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear. Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs.

    In addition, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary (Hodgkinson asked at least two Representatives whether the players on the baseball diamond were Republicans or Democrats before he started shooting), the Times added that “there’s no sign of incitement as direct as in the Giffords attack”

    As Breitbart Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak pointed out, “the Times‘ false equivalence between the two shootings provides a sick excuse for what Hodgkinson did by making it appear to be partially Republicans’ fault. That is worse than ‘fake news.’ It is an effort to exploit a horrific act of violence for the purpose of stoking political divisions, reinforcing the hysteria in which Hodgkinson was steeped.”

    Palin linked to Pollak’s article in a Facebook post and slammed the Times‘ “sickening editorial” that attempted to “destroy innocent people with more lies and more fake news” to advance the Times‘ preferred narrative at all costs, facts be damned:

    With this sickening NYT’s editorial, the media is doing exactly what I said yesterday should not be done. Despite commenting as graciously as I could on media coverage of yesterday’s shooting, alas, today a perversely biased media’s knee-jerk blame game is attempting to destroy innocent people with lies and more fake news. As I said yesterday, I’d hoped the media had collectively matured since the last attack on a Representative when media coverage spewed blatant lies about who was to blame. There’s been no improvement. The NYT has gotten worse. – SP

    As Breitbart News has extensively reported, hours after Giffords was shot on January 8, 2011, outlets like CNN immediately tried to implicate Palin. It turned out that Loughner, the murderer who killed six people and shot 18, did not have any political leanings whatsoever. He actually spoke to Giffords at a town hall event years before and may have been upset that Giffords brushed off his question with a non-answer. In any event, authorities definitively concluded that Loughner was “in no way influenced by Tea Partiers, conservative media, or Palin.”

    After the Giffords shooting, Zach Osler, Loughner’s friend, told ABC that Loughner was apolitical and did not even watch television.

    “He disliked the news. He didn’t listen to political radio. He didn’t take sides. He wasn’t on the left. He wasn’t on the right,” Osler added.

    Another friend, Bryce Tierney, told left-wing Mother Jones that Loughner was not political. As the left-wing outlet noted:

    Tierney notes that Loughner did not display any specific political or ideological bent: “It wasn’t like he was in a certain party or went to rallies…It’s not like he’d go on political rants.

    The Times‘ editorial was so outrageous and egregious that even mainstream media journalists, some of Palin’s most vicious haters on the right, and those on the left like Chris Hayes agreed that the Times had to issue a correction.

     

    Yep. If editorial board has any intellectual honesty they'll issue a correction for the Palin-as-motivator claim. https://twitter.com/timalberta/status/875193183344496640 

     

    On Thursday morning, the Times finally issued a correction that read: “An earlier version of this editorial incorrectly stated that a link existed between political incitement and the 2011 shooting of Representative Gabby Giffords. In fact, no such link was established.”
