The FBI Says ‘Active Shooter Incidents’ Are On The Rise. What Does That Mean?

 

 

Federal Bureau of Investigation

 

 

 

” The FBI released a report today suggesting that “active shooter incidents” grew more common from 2000 to 2013. Reason readers may wonder how to square that conclusion with the statistics we’ve published suggesting that mass shootings are not on the rise. There are two answers to that. One involves some potential problems with the FBI’s numbers; we’ll get to those issues in a moment. The other answer is simpler: “Active shooter” and “mass shooting” do not mean the same thing.

  You’re forgiven if you didn’t get that impression from the press coverage of the FBI report. The Wall Street Journal, for example, called its story on the study “Mass Shootings on the Rise, FBI Says.” The New York Times said “F.B.I. Confirms a Sharp Rise in Mass Shootings Since 2000.” The Huffington Post went with “FBI Study Finds Mass Shootings On The Rise, Often End Before Police Can Respond.” The Daily Beast didn’t just use the headline “FBI: Mass Shootings Are on The Rise“; every single sentence in its brief article includes the phrase “mass shooting” or “mass shootings.”

  While there are competing definitions of mass shooting out there, they all cover crimes that wouldn’t fit in the FBI’s list of active-shooter incidents; the FBI’s count in turn includes events that no one would call a mass shooting. The standard government definition of an active shooter is “an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.” (It doesn’t mention firearms, but the word shooter obviously excludes other means of murder.) The authors of the FBI report tweaked this definition slightly, dropping the word “confined” because they didn’t want to leave out crimes committed outdoors. They also excluded killings connected to gang rivalries or the drug trade—a major difference between these numbers and the mass-shooting statistics assembled by criminologists like James Alan Fox, one of the country’s leading authorities on mass murder. (For Fox, a mass shooting is basically any homicide with a firearm that leaves at least four people dead.) Another major difference: Rather than basing its definition on how many people were killed, the FBI report focuses on homicidal intent. If the perp only wounds his victims, or if he doesn’t even manage to do that, he still gets counted. Fewer than half of the incidents in the FBI report qualify as mass shootings under Fox’s definition.”

So is it true that these incidents are becoming more common?

  Fox isn’t convinced. “Unlike mass shooting data,” he says, “which come from routinely collected police reports, there is no official data source for active shooter events. Necessarily, these data derived from newspaper searches for the term ‘active shooter’ and similar words. Not only is the term ‘active shooter’ of relatively recent vintage (although created after the 1999 Columbine shooting, it wasn’t used much in news reports until the past two years)…”

Rush Limbaugh Fighting Back and Naming Names Against Communist Front Group Behind “Stop Rush” Campaign

 

 

 

 

” Limbaugh has discovered that Communist front-group, George Soros-funded Media Matters, a group started to bring down media not cheering the pro-Obama anti-American leftist agenda, particularly FOX News and conservative talk superstars like Limbaugh, is the group trying to bring him down by bullying his advertisers. 

  On his highly rated program, unlike progressive talk radio which has been utterly rejected by free markets, Limbaugh discussed the “Stop Rush” Campaign on Tuesday, also revealing that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), apparently another anti-free speech group unable to debate Limbaugh intellectually, but can only use Chicago bully tactics, is trying to remove him from the air.

  Rush points out that as an investigation revealed, the campaign to get him off the air is hardly grassroots. 70% of the tweets to pressure his advertisers to stop sponsoring his show are only from 10 Twitter accounts

  Limbaugh and his team discovered that the “Stop Rush” campaign employs automated tweeting software to make themselves appear much bigger than they are. Limbaugh claims this is in violation of Twitter’s own rules. 

  Limbaugh went on to name names of the specific people he claims are responsible for the harassment of his advertisers. 

“ These activists have long operated in secret and anonymously. But now, The Rush Limbaugh Show has the results of an investigation that names the people tweeting, facebooking, and emailing small businesses with harassing and bullying messages over and over until they surrender,” Limbaugh revealed. 

  Among those agitators, according to Rush’s investigation, is Kent State University tenured professor Nancy Padak, who uses her official email account to “badger advertisers.”

The Latest Wargaming Projections For November

 

 

rcp_8-20-14

 

 

 

” The short version: Since last month’s Wargaming column, almost all the movement has been to the right.

  The slightly longer version is that there are three factors in play here, none good for Harry Reid keeping his majority leader position, and time is running out to find honest ways of countering those factors.

  The only outlier according to RCP’s poll averaging is that open Michigan race between Democratic Congressman Gary Peters and former Republican Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land. Despite Land’s experience with running a competitive statewide campaign, Peters consistently polls ahead of her in the last three weeks by an average of 5.4 points, forcing RCP to move that race from the Toss Up column to Leans Dem. You might assume that such a large lead would make Peters a shoe in, but his highest poll number to date, and that one comes from the left-leaning Detroit News, is only 47%. Every other poll shows him in the low-to-mid 40s. As the representative of the incumbent party in the Senate, those numbers aren’t very comforting. There are still a lot of undecideds in Michigan — which brings us to the first factor working against the Democrats as we enter the final weeks. 

Undecideds.

Tom Dougherty from Practical Politicking writes:

  Once inside six weeks until Election Day, we historically expect one-out-of-four “undecideds” to go with the incumbent, one to stay home and not vote, and two to go to the challenger. Though with the strong anti-incumbent attitude among likely voters this year, those numbers could even be more favorable for the Republican challengers in some states.

  The net effect is to push the Republican challengers in Alaska, Arkansas and Louisiana to leads outside the margin of error. In Colorado, Cory Gardner gains a slight advantage in an otherwise very close race. And in North Carolina and New Hampshire, Thom Tillis and Scott Brown climb into virtual dead-heats.”

Dexter Filkins: ‘Hard To Conclude Otherwise’ That Iraq Withdrawal Was Worst Strategic Decision

  It is, as the company’s slogan says, a “small credit card reader” that offers “big possibilities.” But some of those big possibilities are apparently being foreclosed by the Obama administration.

  Last summer, around the same time the U.S. Department of Justice’s Operation Choke Point began pressuring banks to drop customers who buy or sell firearms, tobacco and other goods considered “not acceptable” by the Obama administration, Square quietly changed its terms of agreement.

In an alert regarding a change of terms, Square notified vendors:

you will not accept payments in connection with the following businesses or business activities: …sales of (i) firearms, firearm parts or hardware, and ammunition; or (ii) weapons and other devices designed to cause physical injury. “

Rush Limbaugh Call Screener Speaks Out: ‘What Liberalism Has Done To Black Communities Is Horrific’

 

 

 

Bo Snerdly

” James Golden, better known to Rush Limbaugh’s listeners as call screener “Bo Snerdly,” sat down with Ginni Thomas for a thirty minute interview for the Daily Caller.

  Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, spent the first half of the interview talking about black America and the second half talking about Golden’s experiences working for 26 years with Limbaugh.

  The comments Golden made about the black community and its experience, much of it drawn from his own personal life growing up in Jamaica, Queens, NY, was incredibly interesting. And it will certainly be controversial.

Here are 5 key quotes from the interview:

  1. “What liberalism has done to the black communities, it’s not a monolithic community, is horrific.”
  2. “Most black people live their lives as conservatives; a lot of them vote liberal because that’s the way their families vote, that’s what they grew up voting. And because they believe the press hype, and by the way Republicans haven’t helped. The last batch of Republicans in DC haven’t help with the branding.” “

Reporters Say White House Sometimes Demands Changes To Press-Pool Reports

 

 

 

 

 

” White House press-pool reports are supposed to be the news media’s eyes and ears on the president, an independent chronicle of his public activities. They are written by reporters for other reporters, who incorporate them into news articles about President Obama almost every day.

  Journalists who cover the White House say Obama’s press aides have demanded — and received — changes in press-pool reports before the reports have been disseminated to other journalists. They say the White House has used its unusual role as the distributor of the reports as leverage to steer coverage in a more favorable direction.

  The disputed episodes involve mostly trivial issues and minor matters of fact. But that the White House has become involved at all represents a troubling trend for journalists and has prompted their main representative, the White House Correspondents’ Association, to consider revising its approach to pool reporting.”

 

 

 

 

   Read the Post’s detailed account of the press corp’s kowtowing to Obama’s demands in tailoring the press releases to meet with White House approval .

Blackwater Founder: We Could Stop ISIS

 

 

 

 

” Erik Prince has a message for ISIS: You’re lucky Blackwater is gone.

  On Friday night, the controversial founder of the private military company had plenty to say about what the organization he once ran could be doing in the fight against the so-called Islamic State—and also why Republicans need to stop being such losers.

“ It’s a shame the [Obama] administration crushed my old business, because as a private organization, we could’ve solved the boots-on-the-ground issue, we could have had contracts from people that want to go there as contractors; you don’t have the argument of U.S. active duty going back in there,” Prince said in an on-stage discussion featuring retired four-star Gen. James Conway. “[They could have] gone in there and done it, and be done, and not have a long, protracted political mess that I predict will ensue.” “

” Taxpayers had to cough up $1,159,823 in just one month to fly President Obama to New York and Denver to raise money for Democrats and attend an LGBT event, according to documents obtained by a taxpayer watchdog group.

  Judicial Watch told Secrets that the Air Force just provided expense reports detailing the flight costs of Air Force One to the cities in July.

The documents show that president’s July 8-9 fundraising trip to Denver cost the taxpayers $695,894.10.

His July 17-18 fundraising trip to New York City cost taxpayers $463,929.40.

  Travel costs are typically a small portion of presidential trips. Judicial Watch said that the U.S. Secret Service has not complied with a request to detail security expenses and the costs of housing and moving the president and his staff are also unknown. “

Democrats Relying On Big Donors To Win

 

 

 

 

” Democrats love to cast Republicans as the party of big money, beholden to the out-of-touch billionaires bankrolling their campaigns. But new numbers tell a very different story — one in which Democrats are actually raising more big money than their adversaries.

  Among the groups reporting the biggest political ad spending, the 15 top Democrat-aligned committees have outraised the 15 top Republican ones $453 million to $289 million in the 2014 cycle, according to a POLITICO analysis of the most recent Federal Election Commission reports, including those filed over the weekend — which cover through the end of last month.

  The analysis shows the fundraising edge widening in August, when the Democratic groups pulled in more than twice as much as their GOP counterparts — $51 million to $21 million. That’s thanks to a spike in massive checks from increasingly energized labor unions and liberal billionaires like Tom Steyer and Fred Eychaner.

  So, even as Democrats like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are working methodically to turn conservative megadonors like the big-giving conservative billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch into the boogeymen of 2014, the party itself is increasingly relying on its deepest pockets as the best chance of staving off a midterm wipeout forecast by oddsmakers.

  For example, Steyer, a retired San Francisco hedge fund billionaire, on Aug. 15 stroked a $15 million check to his own NextGen Climate Action super PAC that single-handedly exceeded the combined monthly total raised by the two GOP congressional campaign committees. And his political lieutenant, Chris Lehane, hinted that Steyer, one of the biggest individual donors of 2014, may give more to his super PAC than his $50 million pledge, which Lehane said “should not be seen as a ceiling.” Steyer’s spending — and that of other Democratic billionaires — has helped fuel an advertising gap favoring the party’s candidates in key races across the country.”

 

 

The hypocrisy is staggering …

 

 

” And, even as Democrats waded haltingly into big money spending in 2012, they continued scolding Republicans for their reliance on deep-pocketed benefactors. In this year’s races, Democrats have essentially adopted a plank attacking Republicans as in the pocket of the Koch brothers — with Reid repeatedly taking to the Senate floor to make the case — even as Democrats have in some ways surpassed Republicans in the big money chase.”

Hong Kong Students Step Up Pressure Against Communist China

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Thousands of university students waving yellow ribbons and “Democracy Now” banners boycotted their classes Monday to protest Beijing’s decision to maintain control over Hong Kong elections, marking an escalation of the city-island’s pro-democracy movement that now is taking aim at local pro-China billionaires.

Chanting “Reject fake elections,” the students marched at Chinese University and said their boycott will continue all week as they gather en masse at government offices and headquarters. The protesters said it’s the first phase of a battle that will include occupying Hong Kong’s central business district in the next few weeks to tell the city’s elite to stop backing China.

The activists said they won’t stand down until they get results.

“ I believe a fight for democracy is a war,” said Chan Kin-man, a leader of a group called Occupy Central, which is spearheading the protest in the financial district. “The occupation of the central business district is just one battle.” “

Enactment Of This Law Will Set A Dangerous Precedent … Sign The Petition Now

 

 

Anchorage Petition

 

 

 

” Florida is attempting to appease wealthy waterfront homeowners by permitting local municipalities to create ordinances that would ban anchoring anywhere near private residences and in particular, anchoring overnight for cruising boaters. The manner in which these ordinances could be written could actually effectively ban anchoring in large parts of Florida.

  Florida state politicians are attempting to circumvent the entire FWC Anchoring/Mooring Pilot Program by allowing any municipality not participating in the program to determine any minimum distance boaters can anchor from every private residence.

  Passage of an amendment such as this would not only make knowing where in Florida overnight anchoring is allowed an impossible task, but could effectively eliminate legal anchoring in nearly all of the state.
If you wish more information on this topic, you can view excellent articles at practicalsailor.com waterwayguide.com and at sailmagazine.com 

  Why should this matter to you? Because, laws enacted in Florida are being considered by waterfront communities as far away as Ontario Canada, even Australia and other overseas countries, and in all of the coastal states of the United States, including the Great Lakes.  

  These laws, if enacted, will create a precedent that could negatively affect your rights to enjoy the waters of your state or province. We need you to speak out and protect boaters’ and the public’s rights to use the waters of Florida.

  Please help us now, so that we don’t have to help you later when this comes to your town.”

Al Gore Mentions Heartland, Tells 11 Falsehoods In Just 35 Seconds

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Al Gore hosted his annual “24 Hours of Reality” program this week. You might have missed it since Gore no longer has a cable network to show his Jerry Lewis-style telethon for the climate-alarmist set, but instead had to broadcast the whole thing online. Come to think of it, you probably also missed all the other “24 Hours of Reality” programs on his old, low-rated, bore of a network, Current TV.

  In the middle of his latest presentation, Gore mentioned The Heartland Institute and how our research ended up in a draft of some K-12 textbooks the Texas School Board is reviewing. Gore managed to pack in no fewer than 11 errors/lies/falsehoods about Heartland and the Texas School Board’s review of text books in just 35 seconds.

Hillary’s $100 Million Hollywood Makeover

 

 

 

 

” The First Secretary of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia described the reforms which resulted in the Prague Spring as “socialism with a human face.” The New York Times calls Madam Secretary, CBS’s extremely expensive prime time contribution to the Hillary campaign, “Hillary with a human face.”

  A network series can cost between $3 and $4 million an episode. Assuming that Madam Secretary runs even one season, instead of being canceled ignominiously like Commander in Chief, the 2005 attempt at giving Hillary a human face, it will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million.

  That’s double the $46 million that Hillary’s campaign spent on TV ads against Obama and it gives the Hillary 2016 campaign over 20 hours of prime time network unpaid ad space. If the series lasts long enough to run through the whole campaign that will double to $200 million. But the Hillary 2016 campaign is expected to cost around $2 billion. CBS’s $100 million donation is only a drop in a big bucket

  Hillary won’t be able to get anyone to play Hillary Clinton once she actually runs for office. Lori McCreary, the executive producer of Madam Secretary, said that she was inspired to create the $100 million Hillary infomercial by watching the Benghazi hearings. Her obvious unspoken thought was that the scene of Hillary doing her best Khrushchev imitation while self-righteously covering up the brutal murder of four Americans would have gone much better if someone else had been playing Hillary.”

The Utter Failure Of Obama

 

 

 

 

 

Barack Obama is destined to be the greatest flop in American presidential history.  He is, in every sense of the word, an utter failure.

  Consider first his signature achievement, Obamacare.  Not only has Obama had to delay implementation, creating a perfect precedent for his Republican successor to do the same, but the law is more unpopular today than it has ever been according to all polling data. 

  Pew Research reports that 55% of Americans disapprove of Obamacare.  A clear plurality of Americans believe that they will be worse off because of Obamacare.  CBS News lists the “strongly approve” of Obamacare at 16%, while “strongly disapprove” is a whopping 47%.  Every polling organization, no matter how the question is worded, shows the same public disdain for this law.

  Obama, who “won” the Nobel Peace Prize almost as soon as he took office, is now officially a warmonger president – but one who leads from behind and rejects every attempt to form a national consensus policy, and whose utter haplessness in guiding national security is stunning.  Syria, Libya, Ukraine, Iraq – everywhere in the world, really – Obama’s foreign policy has been almost comic opera.”

Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky Correspondence Revealed

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development.

  Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.  

  Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

  The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training center for community organizers founded by Alinsky, which are housed at the University of Texas at Austin.

  The letters also suggest that Alinsky, who died in 1972, had a deeper influence on Clinton’s early political views than previously known.

  A 23-year-old Hillary Clinton was living in Berkeley, California, in the summer of 1971. She was interning at the left-wing law firm Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein, known for its radical politics and a client roster that included Black Panthers and other militants.”
