Deadly IS Attack in Orlando


Orlando, Florida (CNN)A gay nightclub here was the scene early Sunday of the worst terror attack in U.S. history since 9/11.

* 50 people were killed inside the Pulse club and at least 53 people were injured, police say.
* The gunman was Omar Mateen of Ft. Pierce, Florida, a law enforcement source told CNN.
* Orlando police shot and killed Mateen
* Mateen called 911 around the time of the attack to pledge allegiance to ISIS and mention the Boston bombers, according to a U.S. official.
“It appears he was organized and well-prepared,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina said early Sunday. The shooter had an assault-type weapon, a handgun and “some type of (other) device on him.”
There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack on jihadi forums, but ISIS sympathizers have reacted by praising the attack on pro-Islamic State forums.

    Can Obama finally acknowledge we are at war with the Islamic state?

  2. dad29

    Nope. But The Guns are at war with us, ya’know.

  3. Pat

    I thought the perpetrator of this atrocity was an American born citizen.

  4. Kevin Scheunemann


    Who was an ISIS disciple under previous FBI scrutiny!

    We are not serious at the top about the Islamic threat.

  5. Pat

    Oh we should be serious! I agree with you 100% Kevin. Any American who perpetrates this type of crime against its citizenry needs to be taken, and dealt with, seriously! Be it any religious extremist, or member of any political belief.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann


    Then let’s deal with additional problem, the head evil, ISIS! They recruit and maintain these terrorists, taking credit, inspiring more terrorists and we do nothing!

    Our president can’t even acknowledge the evil of radical Islam!

    Since radical Islam wants to kill gay people everywhere now, just how much more tolerant of violent and hateful Islam are liberals going to be in the future of Sharia law being carried out?

    Or do we need a “trigger warning ” yet before we even call the teachings of Islam evil?

  7. Pat

    “Then let’s deal with additional problem, the head evil, ISIS”

    And what would your plan be?

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    Treat it like we are at war. Not ignore the problem like Obama. I would not have surrendered Iraq to ISIS in the first place.

  9. Pat

    Kevin, do you have specifics as to how you would conduct the war?

  10. Kevin Scheunemann


    1.) don’t surrender ground you already won.

    2.) round up all radical Islamist Imams/clerics in this country and their followers. Have EU do the same.

    3.) destroy ISIS. That may involve ground troops, which is unfortunate, because that blood is on Obama for surrendering in first place!

  11. Pat

    Sounds like a plan. I think that Congress should also call for an immediate vote for a declaration of war.

    We better all heed kevin’s advice. He has extensive personal training and experience in military tactics. But he doesn’t seem to recall how we got into Iraq in the first place.History is not his strong suit.

    Trump today said that the government allowed the killing to happen when it allowed the parents to emigrate here from a war torn country .

    His answer to our problems are simple Stop immigration and hold without charge any American we are suspicious of

    ” First they came for the Jew’s ”

    The issue yesterday was home grown Americans with home grown American rights buying assault weapons and killing 50 Gay people

    That is first and foremost a hate crime
    ( please don’t tell me all murders are a hate crime, this was not any nightclub, it was a gay nightclub .

    BTW, did Clinton err in not arresting every white Militia group and hold them without charge after Timothy McVey killed all those folks in Oklahoma City . McVey acted in support of a religious sect .

    Hard to imagine how quickly we want to keep terrorist watch list rights to buy weapons but also want to deny Americans rights based about what religion they belong to .

    Your demagogue of choice spoke today .
    Listen to the speech .

    What he’s doing is nothing new .
    If he actually gets away with it , that will be new …… And terrifying for our Democracy

  14. Will

    McVeigh was an agnostic, you fat toothless hillbilly fuck.

  15. Kevin Scheunemann


    Sounds to me like you want to do nothing over the Islamic execution threat to gay Americans?

    Isn’t the do nothing liberal stance just like rounding gay people up for the Islamic death camps.

    You invoked the “do nothing” ethics from Nazi Germany that led to rounding up of Jews. What is Obama’s plan on immigration? Is Hillary’s any different?

  16. Mark Maley

    Your postings have turned nonsensical

    ISIS must love a Presidential candidate accusing the current POTUS of treason after a lone wolf kills 50 people and having responsible people remain silent

    You are far too smart to buy into this crap

  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    If you asked ISIS who they would vote for….hands down it would be Hillary.

    ISIS only thrives because Democrats tolerate and ignore their evil.

    You think ISIS would vote for guy that wants to ban Muslim travel?

  18. old baldy


    How do you know?

    Prove it?

    How many ISIS members are US citizens and eligible to vote?

    “Bill O’Reilly stunned many viewers Tuesday night when he called for some measures of gun control to be implemented after the terrorist attack in Orlando, Florida, that claimed the lives at least 49 people — the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

    After criticizing liberal politicians for not being aggressive enough on the fight against the Islamic State terrorist group, the Fox News host addressed the “right-wing responsibility” after the attack carried out by 29-year-old Omar Mateen using an assault weapon and a handgun.”

    Interesting, eh?
