Evolution Of Mom Dancing (w/ Jimmy Fallon & Michelle Obama)...Dude Looks Like A Lady

littlebytesnews's insight:

I asked my sons which of them looked like a man dressed as a woman and my youngest pointed to Michelle Obama! LOL He didn't realize she was a woman nor the President's wife! 

 

I kind of  have to agree with him...she is rather masculine and her new hairdo or wig makes her look more masculine....though she may have lost a little weight since the last time I saw her. It's about time she lost a little weight, especially if she's going to go around dictating to people what they should eat and telling them to get moving.

 

I don't see why Fallon dressed like a woman, but it was somewhat humorous overall...though MObama disgusts me.

His Idea: Why Did Barack Obama Propose It?-To cut military,while blaming GOP&fear mongering for more taxes! http://sco.lt/6jlkLh

 

However, while it may be Obama's idea as a way to bully GOP into more taxes rather than the cuts, it may be the only cuts we get out of this administration. The cuts aren't nearly as bad as Obama is making it out to be, they are just manipulated the public and using the media to distort the facts. Even with the sequester the US will still spend more this year than they did in 2012!

 

If we survived 2012 without cuts, we will survive 2013 with cuts because the cuts aren't even equivalent to last years spending!

Understanding the Sequester...Obama's fear-mongering is propaganda disguised as tax increases&more spending

Understanding the Sequester...Obama's fear-mongering is propaganda disguised as tax increases&more spending | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The Congressional Budget Office today released its update to its estimates of the effects of
littlebytesnews's insight:

Additionally, the sequestration would be minimal in cuts in comparison to the $3+ Trillion budget Obama is planning to spend and borrow on top of the $6 Trillion he already spent and borrowed his first term and in addition to the $16Trillion debt we have overall.

 

While the sequestration sounds bad, especially when Obama is going around fear mongering everyone and saying we may lose police, military, fire fighters, teachers, etc and parents will have to find child care for their children because there won't be enough teachers..bla blah blah...it's barely a cut of .5% of the GDP.

 

The cuts would be about $44B or only 1.5% less than what Obama had planned to spend for the year 2013, which under the current spending policies equates to about a week's worth of govt spending based on the CBO's estimates.

 

In addition, according to the journal of National Affairs, even with the sequester the federal govt will spend a little more in 2013 than in 2012, $3.553 compared to $3.538 trillion in 2012.

 

It's estimated that the $85B in savings is only 2.3% of total spending. The agencies Obama says can't save 5% received an average increase of 17% in the previous five years, not counting their $267 Billion stimulus bonus.

 

Also as pointed out in Politico, by Rich Lowry, a cut of a little more than $40 Billion this year from a $16 Trillion debt is not going to harm the economy by keeping the deficit the same at about $845B with the sequester cuts already accounted for.

 

Finally, when GOP offered an alternative to the sequester, Obama threatened in Nov 2011 he would veto any bill that would stop the sequester. In addition according to the liberal leaning Washington Post and Politifact Obama was the one who created and supported the sequestration, where Obama said:

 “Already some in Congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. My message to them is simple: No, I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. There will be no easy off ramps on this one”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Crt5J3XM_zk

 

But it was Obama’s negotiating team that came up with the idea for defense cuts in 2011, though they were intended to prod Congress to come up with a better deal for reining in the deficit, not as an effort to make those cuts reality.

The Washington Monument ploy. "If Congress allows this meat-cleaver approach to take place," he moaned, "it will jeopardize our military readiness; it will eviscerate job creating investments in education and energy and medical research." His parade of horribles went on for several minutes. All of this wreckage from a 5% cut to domestic agencies and a 7% cut to the military.


Americans need to understand that Mr. Obama is threatening that if he doesn't get what he wants, he's ready to inflict maximum pain on everybody else. He won't force government agencies to shave spending on travel and conferences and excessive pay and staffing. He won't demand that agencies cut the lowest priority spending as any half-competent middle manager would.

 

It's the old ploy to stir public support for all government spending by shutting down vital services first. Voters should scoff at the idea that a $3.6 trillion government can't save one nickel of every dollar that agencies spend.


Mr. Obama just whacked the economy with a roughly $160 billion tax increase in 2013 that he says will do no harm, but he wants us to believe that $85 billion in spending cuts will trigger a recession. The sequester shaves the equivalent of about 0.25% of GDP when offsetting it against the extra money the feds are spending on Sandy relief.


Mr. Obama has taken government spending from 21% to 24% of GDP, yet we've had the weakest economic recovery in three generations.


Obama has rejected every meaningful reform in entitlements that Republicans or his own Simpson-Bowles commission have offered. ObamaCare will add more than $1 trillion in new costs and add some 17 million people to Medicaid, but he says this can't be touched. In his State of the Union address Mr. Obama proposed $83.4 billion in new spending, according to a tally by the National Taxpayers Union.

 

If Mr. Obama really wants to eliminate the sequester, Republicans are ready to negotiate. But if he won't drop his tax increase and negotiate in good faith, as he hasn't during his Presidency


http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323495104578314301609669998.html

 

Over the next 10 years, the sequester amounts to a $1.16 trillion cut, or roughly 3 cents on every federal dollar. If we can’t squeeze a couple of pennies out of every dollar, we might as well begin our great national bankruptcy proceedings right now.


Even with the sequester, nondefense discretionary spending will still be up almost 10 percent since 2008. Even with the sequester, federal spending is projected to be a robust 22.8 percent of gross domestic product in 2023. Even with the sequester, the debt will hit 100 percent of GDP just two years later than it would otherwise, according to the Bipartisan Policy Center.

Update: CA, AZ, UT COPS JOIN SEARCH FOR BLACK RANGE ROVER THAT STARTED VEGAS STRIP SHOOTOUT

TEEJ and KENNY CLUTCH - STAY SCHEMIN
littlebytesnews's insight:

Law enforcement in CA, AZ and UT are on the lookout for a black Range Rover involved in a shootout that left three dead in a fiery crash on the Las Vegas Strip early Thursday morning.

A local rapper, Kenny Clutch, see his rap video below, has been identified as the man killed while driving the Silver Maserati after he was shot and ran into a taxi cab, killing two victims in the cab.

Update USA Today:

Las Vegas rapper Kenneth Cherry, known as Kenny Clutch, was identified as one of the victims, police told the Las Vegas Review Journal.

A Maserati driven by the rapper was the target of the drive-by shooting on the Strip early Thursday that left Cherry and two innocent bystanders dead. Las Vegas police said several occupants of a black Range Rover fired into the Maserati at about 4:30 a.m. at Las Vegas Boulevard South and Flamingo Road following a dispute in the valet parking area of the Aria hotel.

Sgt. John Sheahan said the driver of the Maserati was fatally shot and a passenger in Clutch’s car suffered an arm injury and was taken to University Medical Center, where he was cooperating with investigators.

Police:Las Vegas woman caught having sex with pit bull in yard,continues after saying “hi” to officers

Police:Las Vegas woman caught having sex with pit bull in yard,continues after saying “hi” to officers | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

A woman was arrested Tuesday on a charge of gross lewdness with a pit bull in her yard.

Kara Vandereyk, 23, was booked after Las Vegas police officers, about 11 a.m., saw a woman having sex with a dog in the yard of a home in the 300 block of N. 16th St., near Bonanza Road and Bruce Street.

Vandereyk was naked and on the ground when officers arrived, according to the arrest report.

When Vandereyk noticed the officers, she said, “Hi,” and began touching the dog in a sexual way, the report said.

littlebytesnews's insight:

But it was because of love…should she have right to marry her dog next??

The depravity of our society has gone beyond disgusting. Whether she’s mentally ill or was on drugs is not confirmed, but according to the report she claims to have bipolar disorder and is unable to tell what year it is,who the president is or what her name is.

Yet, she knows what bipoloar disorder is?

Did DHS Order Shooting Targets of White Elderly, Children and Pregnant Women to Desensitize Them and Eliminate Americans Without ‘Hesitation’?

Did DHS Order  Shooting Targets of White Elderly, Children and Pregnant Women to Desensitize Them and Eliminate Americans Without ‘Hesitation’? | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

What if I told you police in your town could desensitize themselves to the idea of shooting a (armed) child, pregnant woman, or young mother, for just a couple of bucks? The “No More Hesitation” series from Law Enforcement Targets Inc. offers exactly that. For less than 99 cents per target, police can shoot at real-life images “designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training.”

Update: The marketing team at Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. sends along this helpful explanation for the “No More Hesitation” series:

“The subjects in NMH targets were chosen in order to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training. I found while speaking with officers and trainers in the law enforcement community that there is a hesitation on the part of cops when deadly force is required on subjects with atypical age, frailty or condition (one officer explaining that he enlarged photos of his own kids to use as targets so that he would not be caught off guard with such a drastically new experience while on duty). This hesitation time may be only seconds but that is not acceptable when officers are losing their lives in these same situations. The goal of NMH is to break that stereotype on the range, regardless of how slim the chances are of encountering a real life scenario that involves a child, pregnant woman, etc. If that initial hesitation time can be cut down due to range experience, the officer and community are better served.”

littlebytesnews's insight:

It's no wonder many don't trust this government when they are trying to disarm Americans by limiting how much ammunition you can buy to what type of weapon you can own. 

 

Then there is the fact the DHS has been purchasing billions in ammunition supplies, some say enough to kill every man, woman and child in the US with several gun shots.

http://patdollard.com/2013/02/tally-feds-buy-2-billion-rounds-of-ammo-in-10-months/


According to the article, the Minnesota based company, Law Enforcement Targets, Inc provides this material for law enforcement target shooting and training. The company has a contract worth billions with the federal government. Making it also questionable whether DHS would be planning to use these materials to train and desensitize federal law enforcement. 

http://www.usaspending.gov/explore?frompage=contracts&tab=By%20Prime%20Awardee&contractorid=792861783&contractorname=LAW%20ENFORCEMENT%20TARGETS%20INC%20%20%20&frompage=contracts&comingfrom=searchresults&fiscal_year=all


Others believe the federal government may be purchasing large amounts of ammo to either use during social and economic unrest or as a form of gun control by buying up all the ammo so that law abiding citizens are unable to purchase it.

Former Columbine Student Writes Open Letter To Obama Against Gun Control: ‘Whose Side Are You On?’

Former Columbine Student Writes Open Letter To Obama Against Gun Control: ‘Whose Side Are You On?’ | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Columbine survivor Evan Todd released an open letter to President Barack Obama on Wednesday in which he offers a point-by-point analysis of proposed firearms control initiatives, dismissing them as ineffective and dangerous to Americans’ rights.

He recently outlined why he fervently disagrees with the gun control policies that have been proposed in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. TheBlazeinterviewed Todd earlier this week and subsequently detailed how his experience being shot back in 1999 has shaped his views on the issue.

The letter, which speaks directly to the president, covers a number of key facets in the gun control debate. On universal background checks, Todd expresses his fears that “universal registration can easily be used for universal confiscation.” Additionally, he says his belief that assault weapons bans are ineffective and argues that the first law did little to stop violence when it was in effect from 1994 until 2004; he cites Columbine as a prime example.

“It was during this time that I personally witnessed two fellow students murder twelve of my classmates and one teacher,” he writes. “The assault weapons ban did not deter these two murderers, nor did the other thirty-something laws that they broke.”

“Why would you prefer criminals to have the ability to out-gun law-abiding citizens?,” he asks the president in the text. “Whose side are you on?”

Read Todd’s open letter to Obama, below.

Mr. President,

As a student who was shot and wounded during the Columbine massacre, I have a few thoughts on the current gun debate. In regards to your gun control initiatives:

Universal Background Checks

First, a universal background check will have many devastating effects. It will arguably have the opposite impact of what you propose. If adopted, criminals will know that they can not pass a background check legally, so they will resort to other avenues. With the conditions being set by this initiative, it will create a large black market for weapons and will support more criminal activity and funnel additional money into the hands of thugs, criminals, and people who will do harm to American citizens.

Second, universal background checks will create a huge bureaucracy that will cost an enormous amount of tax payers dollars and will straddle us with more debt. We cannot afford it now, let alone create another function of government that will have a huge monthly bill attached to it.

Third, is a universal background check system possible without universal gun registration? If so, please define it for us. Universal registration can easily be used for universal confiscation. I am not at all implying that you, sir, would try such a measure, but we do need to think about our actions through the lens of time.

It is not impossible to think that a tyrant, to the likes of Mao, Castro, Che, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, and others, could possibly rise to power in America. It could be five, ten, twenty, or one hundred years from now — but future generations have the natural right to protect themselves from tyrannical government just as much as we currently do. It is safe to assume that this liberty that our forefathers secured has been a thorn in the side of would-be tyrants ever since the Second Amendment was adopted.

Ban on Military-Style Assault Weapons

The evidence is very clear pertaining to the inadequacies of the assault weapons ban. It had little to no effect when it was in place from 1994 until 2004. It was during this time that I personally witnessed two fellow students murder twelve of my classmates and one teacher. The assault weapons ban did not deter these two murderers, nor did the other thirty-something laws that they broke.

Gun ownership is at an all time high. And although tragedies like Columbine and Newtown are exploited by ideologues and special-interest lobbying groups, crime is at an all time low. The people have spoken. Gun store shelves have been emptied. Gun shows are breaking attendance records. Gun manufacturers are sold out and back ordered. Shortages on ammo and firearms are countrywide. The American people have spoken and are telling you that our Second Amendment shall not be infringed.

10-Round Limit for Magazines

Virginia Tech was the site of the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history. Seung-Hui Cho used two of the smallest caliber hand guns manufactured and a handful of ten round magazines. There are no substantial facts that prove that limited magazines would make any difference at all.
Second, this is just another law that endangers law-abiding citizens. I’ve heard you ask, “why does someone need 30 bullets to kill a deer?”

Let me ask you this: Why would you prefer criminals to have the ability to out-gun law-abiding citizens? Under this policy, criminals will still have their 30-round magazines, but the average American will not. Whose side are you on?

Lastly, when did they government get into the business of regulating “needs?” This is yet another example of government overreaching and straying from its intended purpose.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Good letter...think Obama will read it or throw it in the reject waste basket, while he continues to push his gun control legislation down our throats??

Amanda Rochelle Yates's curator insight, April 22, 2013 1:56 AM

What I really like about this is the fact that it was written by a Columbine survivor. Not just any survivor, but one who was wounded during the attack. He is not anti-gun, even given his history. I love when he says thatwith proposed gun laws "would you prefer criminals to have the ability to out-gun law-abiding citizens?" And since when have criminals followed the law?

Jessica Cusick's curator insight, February 9, 2015 1:11 PM

There is not much that one president can do to protect people from guns and school shootings. The president cannot make guns completely illegal because it is written in the Constitution that we have the right to bear arms and that right will never be taken away. There is only so much America can do when it comes to gun control. Making laws to restrict guns is really as far as anyone can go. There will always be guns, there will always be insane people wanting guns, and there will always be deaths due to guns. It is just a matter of keeping the insane people away from guns and keeping sane people safe.

Travis Elliott's curator insight, March 12, 2015 10:12 AM

The bureaucracy being discussed is not clear but is about those concerning gun control. In the article, I don't understand the puprose of the attempts to ban guns due to the excessive amounts of criminal activity. I do agree with the students article, and his attempts to pursuade President Obama not to ban guns also due to the necessity of personal protection as well as the illusivness of criminals to obtain guns.

6 underground Hanford nuclear tanks leaking, Washington governor says

6 underground Hanford nuclear tanks leaking, Washington governor says | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Six underground radioactive waste tanks at the nation's most contaminated nuclear site are leaking, Washington Gov.

YAKIMA, Wash. –  Six underground tanks that hold a brew of radioactive and toxic waste at the nation's most contaminated nuclear site are leaking, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee announced Friday.

The leaking tanks strike another blow to federal efforts to clean up south-central Washington's Hanford nuclear reservation, where any successes often are overshadowed by delays, budget overruns and technological challenges.

State officials just last week announced that one of Hanford's 177 underground tanks was leaking in the range of 150 to 300 gallons a year, posing a risk to groundwater and rivers. So far, nearby wells haven't detected higher radioactivity levels.

Inslee traveled to Washington, D.C., this week to discuss the problem with federal officials. He said Friday he learned during meetings that six tanks are leaking waste.

"We received very disturbing news today," the governor said. "I think that we are going to have a course of new action and that will be vigorously pursued in the next several weeks."

Inslee noted there are legal and ethical considerations to cleaning up the Hanford site, both at the state and national level. He also stressed the state would impose a "zero-tolerance" policy on leaking radioactive waste into the soil and insisted that the Department of Energy fully clean up the site.

The tanks already are long past their intended 20-year life span. They hold millions of gallons of a highly radioactive stew left from decades of plutonium production for nuclear weapons.

The leaking tanks were missed because graphs that monitor the waste levels were evaluated only over a short period, rather than a longer period that might have shown the levels changing, Inslee said.

The Washington Monument ploy. "If Congress allows this meat-cleaver approach to take place," he moaned, "it will jeopardize our military readiness; it will eviscerate job creating investments in education and energy and medical research." His parade of horribles went on for several minutes. All of this wreckage from a 5% cut to domestic agencies and a 7% cut to the military.

 

Americans need to understand that Mr. Obama is threatening that if he doesn't get what he wants, he's ready to inflict maximum pain on everybody else. He won't force government agencies to shave spending on travel and conferences and excessive pay and staffing. He won't demand that agencies cut the lowest priority spending as any half-competent middle manager would.

 

It's the old ploy to stir public support for all government spending by shutting down vital services first. Voters should scoff at the idea that a $3.6 trillion government can't save one nickel of every dollar that agencies spend.

 

Mr. Obama just whacked the economy with a roughly $160 billion tax increase in 2013 that he says will do no harm, but he wants us to believe that $85 billion in spending cuts will trigger a recession. The sequester shaves the equivalent of about 0.25% of GDP when offsetting it against the extra money the feds are spending on Sandy relief.

 

Mr. Obama has taken government spending from 21% to 24% of GDP, yet we've had the weakest economic recovery in three generations.

 

Obama has rejected every meaningful reform in entitlements that Republicans or his own Simpson-Bowles commission have offered. ObamaCare will add more than $1 trillion in new costs and add some 17 million people to Medicaid, but he says this can't be touched. In his State of the Union address Mr. Obama proposed $83.4 billion in new spending, according to a tally by the National Taxpayers Union.

 

If Mr. Obama really wants to eliminate the sequester, Republicans are ready to negotiate. But if he won't drop his tax increase and negotiate in good faith, as he hasn't during his Presidency

Over the next 10 years, the sequester amounts to a $1.16 trillion cut, or roughly 3 cents on every federal dollar. If we can’t squeeze a couple of pennies out of every dollar, we might as well begin our great national bankruptcy proceedings right now.

 

Even with the sequester, nondefense discretionary spending will still be up almost 10 percent since 2008. Even with the sequester, federal spending is projected to be a robust 22.8 percent of gross domestic product in 2023. Even with the sequester, the debt will hit 100 percent of GDP just two years later than it would otherwise, according to the Bipartisan Policy Center.

So now what??? Prepare for a weaker military, worsened national security and even worse international security and more strained relations with our allies in Israel and around the world....just what Obama wants, total destruction of the US!

Houston Group Giving Away Shotguns In High-Crime Neighborhoods To Test If Crime Is Reduced

Houston Group Giving Away Shotguns In High-Crime Neighborhoods To Test If Crime Is Reduced | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

A University of Houston graduate student says he’s conducting a study to hopefully answer the question being asked across the country, “Do more guns reduce crime or not?”

Kyle Coplen, who founded the Armed Citizens Project, is giving away 20-gauge single-shot shotguns to residents in mid- and high-crime neighborhoods to test whether or not the weapon will help reduce crime in the area, according to the group’s website. Coplen says the weapons are not of much value to criminals, but are especially useful for citizens looking to protect themselves from criminals.

“Gun-control advocates often argue that an increase in guns in an area will lead to an increase in crime, while gun-rights advocates often believe that fewer guns result in more crime. While both sides often argue that their opponents policies will result in more crime, gun-control proponents have largely been the victors when it comes to policy implementation,” the website explains. “Pro-gun activists have largely been content to simply fend off new potential gun control laws. It is my opinion that gun-rights activists must take the offensive, and actively encourage the increased presence of defensive weapons in society. Both sides believe that their policies will result in less crime, and it is about time that our side begins to act with the conviction and courage that it will take to win the debate.”

However, the unique experiment has specific criteria for determining who can receive the weapons from the Armed Citizens Project.

littlebytesnews's insight:

So I wonder what kind of specific criteria those who receive a weapon must have? What if they end up in the hands of a mentally ill person or someone steals one and commits a crime? What kind of liability will this group have for providing the weapons, if any? What if one of the participants ends up being an anti-gun person and uses the gun in a shooting spree or other crime just to make the experiement fail??

 

I think those who own guns should buy them on their own, pass the required background checks currently in place and prove mental stability, ie: they haven't been committed to any mental facitilies recently or been diagnosed with any type of psychosis like schizophrenia or other mental illness that can lead to violence.

 

While the background checks currently in place don't require a full mental health evaluation or history, I think this is something that most would be willing to take if required by law in addition to banning felons from legally purchasing weapons...however, they will likely buy them on their own on the black market so background checks are only a small deterrent and most likely delay law abiding citizens more than criminals from obtaining weapons.

CA, AZ, UT Cops Join Search For Black Range Rover That Started Vegas Strip Shootout

CA, AZ, UT Cops Join Search For Black Range Rover That Started Vegas Strip Shootout | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.


The NY Daily News reports:

Three people were killed and a gunman was on the loose Thursday morning after a shooting involving two luxury cars on the Strip ended with a fiery crash.

Police are still looking for a Range Rover with paper plates that they believe fired the shots at another car on the Las Vegas Strip early Thursday.

A black Range Rover with several occupants fired shots at people inside a Maserati, said Las Vegas Metropolitan police Sgt. John Sheahan. Police initially believed the two cars were engaged in a gun battle, but later said they don’t believe the sports car returned fire.

The Maserati slammed into a taxi during the chaos, Sheahan said.

…The crash was apparently violent enough to set the taxi ablaze. A tourist who witnessed the aftermath of the crash told CBS affiliate KLAS-TV that the burning taxi looked like a fireball.

The cause of the shooting was under investgation, although early reports said it could be related to a nightclub feud that spilled onto the Strip.

Meanwhile, the four injured were taken to University Medical Center, although three of them were soon released, said ABC affiliate KTNV.

The shooting prompted police to close Las Vegas Boulevard from Caesar’s Palace to the Paris Las Vegas. The wreckage at the scene looked like a movie set, with mangled cars littering the street.

 The panicked scene was the latest in a series of violent actions on the Sin City tourist corridor since the beginning of the year. Two people were critically wounded in a shooting at a parking garage Feb. 6, and a tourist was stabbed in an elevator at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay Feb. 16.


littlebytesnews's insight:

Two deceased at the scene, one at the hospital, another in critical condition was a passenger in the Maserati.

 

Police are still searching for occupants of a Black Range Rover with large black rims, paper dealer plates and tinted windows involved in fiery crash with a silver Maserati in a high speed rolling shoot out early Thursday morning in Las Vegas. Two people died at the scene, including the taxi driver, a passenger and the driver of the Maserati. A passenger in the Maserati was taken to University Medical Center. Police don’t know how many people were in the Range Rover, but the suspects are believed to be several adult males and are still at large.

Call Las Vegas Police Department if you have any information 385-5555.

Ali Syed-Another Madman With A Gun Who Played Violent Video Games Kills Three Then Himself

Ali Syed-Another Madman With A Gun Who Played Violent Video Games Kills Three Then Himself | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

TUSTIN, Calif. (AP) — A woman who was the first of three people killed in a gunman’s rampage has been identified, but her relationship to the shooter — a videogame-playing loner — remained unknown Wednesday, authorities said.

Courtney Aoki, 20, of Buena Park was shot multiple times early Tuesday in the home that gunman Ali Syed, 20, shared with his parents, said Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino.

But beyond that, authorities know little about her, including how she got there, her occupation, and how she knew Syed, Amormino said.

Syed, a part-time community college student who ultimately committed suicide, was a loner and a “gamer,” Amormino said.

“He spent a lot of time alone in his room playing video games,” he said.

A 12-gauge shotgun used in the killings belonged to Syed and was purchased by his father, he said.

The rampage began before dawn Tuesday at the home inLadera Ranch and ended 25 miles to the north during the early morning rush hour, police said.

Syed killed two more people during carjackings, injured at least three more, and shot up cars zooming down a busy freeway interchange before committing suicide with his shotgun as police closed in, authorities said.

The shooter forced one commuter stopped at a stop sign out of his BMW, marched him to a curb and shot him three times from behind as shocked witnesses looked on,Tustin police Chief Scott Jordan said.

The motive for the shootings remained unclear.

Syed had no criminal history and no history of mental illness or mental disability, said Lt. Paul Garaven, a Tustin police spokesman.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Are these people just possessed, mentally ill or are they predisposed to  violent behavior? How much do you think violent video games and social isolation have to do with this incident and the Newtown Massacre?

NK video shows Obama and American soldiers going up in flames; as NK threatens SK with "final destruction"

North Korea threatened South Korea with “final destruction” during a debate at the United Nations Conference on Disarmament on Tuesday, saying it could take further steps after a nuclear test last week.

“As the saying goes, a new-born puppy knows no fear of a tiger. South Korea’s erratic behavior would only herald its final destruction,” North Korean diplomat Jon Yong Ryong told the meeting.

Jon’s comments drew quick criticism from other nations, including South Korea, France, Germany and Britain, whose ambassador Joanne Adamson said such language was “completely inappropriate” and the discussion with North Korea was heading in the wrong direction.

“It cannot be allowed that we have expressions which refer to the possible destruction of U.N. member states,” she said.

Spanish Ambassador Javier Gil Catalina said the comment left him stupefied and appeared to be a breach of international law.

“In the 30 years of my career I’ve never heard anything like it and it seems to me that we are not speaking about something that is even admissible, we are speaking about a threat of the use of force that is prohibited by Article 2.4 of the United Nations charter,” Catalina said.

Since the North tested a nuclear bomb last week in defiance of U.N. resolutions, its southern neighbor has warned it could strike the isolated state if it believed an attack was imminent.

Pyongyang said the aim of the test was to bolster its defenses given the hostility of the United States, which has led a push to impose sanctions on North Korea.

“Our current nuclear test is the primary countermeasure taken by the DPRK in which it exercised its maximum self-restraint,” said the North Korean diplomat Jon.

“If the U.S. takes a hostile approach toward the DPRK to the last, rendering the situation complicated, it (North Korea) will be left with no option but to take the second and third stronger steps in succession,” he said, without indicating what that might entail.

North Korea has already told key ally China that it is prepared to stage one or two more tests this year to force the United States into diplomatic talks, a source with direct knowledge of the message told Reuters last week.

“OFFENSIVE”

U.S. Ambassador Laura Kennedy said she found North Korea’s threat on Tuesday profoundly disturbing and later tweeted that it was “offensive”.

Poland’s representative suggested North Korea’s participation in the U.N. forum should be limited.

Impoverished and malnourished North Korea is one of the most heavily sanctioned states in the world.

It is still technically at war with South Korea after a 1950-53 civil war ended in a mere truce.

Keep Reading…

In addition, North Korea has submitted a new propaganda video against the United States, showing Obama and US military soldiers on fire. I thought the United States was in recent talks with them  behind China and Japan’s backs?

The Daily Mail reports:

A North Korean video has portrayed Barack Obama and American troops in flames and says the North conducted its recent nuclear test because of U.S. hostility.

The video, posted on Sunday, follows a string of critical rhetoric against the United States.

Another video posted earlier this month showed an American city, with similarities to New York, being attacked by missiles.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Looks like North Korea is lacking attention lately…they are not only threatening South Korea again, but have come out with another anti-American propaganda video showing President Obama and American soldiers in flames.
