    “LAPD: Fugitive Ex-Cop A “Domestic Terrorist”

    Finally, pushback to the leftwing love fest.

    Next from the leftwing playbook: T-shirts with his likeness and a TV movie.

  • jsn2

    Wow. From the Blogs & Stuff section, the Nice Deb link says it all about Obama and what our defenders think of him contrasted to Bush. Check it out.

  • Quartermaster

    Newsmax is carrying a story that the Vatican has confirmed the current Pope is resigning effective the end of this month.We’ll see who is the next Pope and if the St. Malachy prophecy turns out correct as to the characteristic of what he said will be the last Pope.

    Interesting times.

    Am I the only one that thinks that isn’t LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, but rather Tom Selleck?

  • Neo

    It’s hard to believe but there are those out there who sympathize with the man targeting police officers.
    One Facebook page is proclaiming Dorner for president. “We propose electing a man who could no longer sit idly by and watch as malicious tyrants abuse the innocent.”
    The description on “We Are All Chris Dorner” chillingly says, “Yes, this is war.”

    No wonder Obama is pivoting, yet again, to jobs and unemployment.

    LAPD has now apparently declared war on trunks .. two separate incidents where trucks having nothing to do with Dorner were attacked .. one by bullets & one by ramming.

    “President Going To Chicago To “Talk About The Gun Violence”” Is he going to talk to the shooters or is he going to lecture their victims?

  • Wombat_socho

    Whatever! ;)

  • Wombat_socho

    I am unconcerned; we will get the Pope we need, not the Pope we (or the NYT) may want, although I have to admit I was happy to see Cardinal Ratzinger chosen.

  • Wombat_socho

    Do we ever see them in the same place at the same time?

  • Wombat_socho

    I wouldn’t be surprised in the least.

  • Wombat_socho

    I am sure the Coalition of the Damned is pissing their pants with joy over this.

  • http://wizbangblog.com/ Adjoran

    Just so. A wonderful man and a great scholar.

    If the NYT is ever pleased with the results of a Papal Conclave, it will be a sign of great danger for the Church.

  • Quartermaster

    I’m not really concerned either. I’m just interested in the eschatological aspects of it.

  • http://thecampofthesaints.org Bob Belvedere

    Hmmm.
