I was watching a delightful and interesting video of the building of Disneyland sent by a friend when I got a phone call late last night from Kristinn Taylor alerting me to a story he just broke over at The Gateway Pundit
( http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/…/breaking-islamic-state-p…/ )
that was linked as the TOP headline at the Drudge Report.
It was news of the shooting in Garland TX of two self-proclaimed ISIS nut jobs who were protesting a FREE SPEECH event -- Draw Muhammed cartoon contest -- organized by a mutual friend Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer of JihadWatch.org
I've met Geller -- and Spencer -- several times and have had them on my radio program numerous times over the past few years. Somehow we bloggers/writers/researchers/reporters in the new social media are all connected... it's amazing to realize the network we've created over the past fifteen years.
Anyway, my point is, I never did get back to the Disney vid. I spent the next few hours helping Kristinn grab screen shots of tweets sent out from these ISIS loons to illustrate his reports.
Never a dull moment... never. Especially not on tonight's show.
Are the elites feverishly preparing for something big? Full spectrum ops in the homeland? Are we bubbling up to a civil war in 2016? Resettlement communities - the latest plus what happened in Baltimore over the weekend, and a message to our youth. Is this the beginning of the "American Spring?" At least one writer thinks so.
And finally, "W" speaks out about Obama and his policies.
