Yes, I know, it’s symbolic.

This symbol matters. Vote in a Republican and this bill gets signed.

President Obama Doesn’t Want You To Jump To Any Conclusions

President Obama on the San Bernardino attack:

It is possible that this was terrorist-related, but we don’t know. It’s also possible that this was workplace-related.

What law enforcement found in the garage at the house in Redlands:

A search of that property revealed 12 pipe bombs in the garage as well as “hundreds” of tools to construct IEDs and “other material to produce some additional bombs.” Thousands more rounds of ammunition were also stored there.

Barguan said at this point they don’t know of plans for another attack, but “clearly they were equipped” to stage another. “We intercepted them before that happened,” he said.

Now that’s some thoughtful preparation by Syed Farook: Hm, what should I have on hand in case I get really, really annoyed with my co-workers…


UPDATE BY PATTERICO: Also the guy was in touch with a bunch of international terrorists but what does that really mean after all?

Gosh, do you think the staff of The Onion might be a little obsessed with gun control?

‘If You See Something, Say Something’

In the aftermath of yesterday’s horrific attack in San Bernardino, we find out that sadly and frustratingly, our politically correct climate inhibited residents from following Homeland Security’s admonition:

Across the nation, we’re all part of communities. In cities, on farms, and in the suburbs, we share everyday moments with our neighbors, colleagues, family, and friends. It’s easy to take for granted the routine moments in our every day—going to work or school, the grocery store or the gas station. But your every day is different than your neighbor’s—filled with the moments that make it uniquely yours. So if you see something you know shouldn’t be there—or someone’s behavior that doesn’t seem quite right—say something. Because only you know what’s supposed to be in your everyday.

Informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our nation safe. “If You See Something, Say Something™” engages the public in protecting our homeland through awareness–building, partnerships, and other outreach.


A man who has been working in the area said he noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area in recent weeks, but decided not to report anything since he did not wish to racially profile those people.

“We sat around lunch thinking, ‘What were they doing around the neighborhood?’” he said. “We’d see them leave where they’re raiding the apartment.”

It appears that it is indeed imperative that we work toward major climate change; I just wish to God our president focused on the climate change that is truly having an immediate and negative impact on us all.
