Attorney General Loretta Lynch Says: Our Most Effective Response to Terror is Compassion, Unity and Love (VIDEO)

GOOD GRIEF: FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WHO HAS BROUGHT YOU ISIS COMES, ALL WE NEED IS LOVE TO FIGHT TERRORISM.

Yesterday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch spoke in Orlando, Florida and stated, our most effective response to terror and hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love.” ARE YOU FRIGGING KIDDING ME!!! Let’s understand this, the United States most effective response to terror is compassion, its unity and its love? WTF is this woman talking about? This is the liberal, political correctness agenda that is going to get us all killed. Liberalism truly is a disease.  As Legal Insurrection opined, “It should come as a surprise to no one that under Obama, the nation’s top law enforcement officer sounds more like a high school guidance counselor than a prosecutor.” It is exactly this type of thinking and dealing with terrorism, or the lack thereof, that is responsible for 49 individuals being slaughtered in an Orlando nightclub. How is it that the Obama administration uses more harsh words and rhetoric to describe Republicans and Conservatives than they do terrorists? Thus lies the problem. The barbarians are at the gates and according to the Obama administration, all ya need is love.

We have an administration that has their heads up their collectives asses so far due to an ideology that they are putting America and Americans at risk. I would ask, who is the JV? It would seem it is the current Obama administration. Democrats need to be thrown out of office before we are all killed by terrorists.

Washington Free Beacon:

Lynch said the Department of Justice stood in solidarity with the LGBT community “in the light” following a Muslim terrorist’s massacre of 49 people at a gay nightclub last week.

“We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love,” Lynch said. “We stand with you today as we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone, we will continue to stand with you as we grow together in commitment, in solidarity, and in equality.”

Lynch has been in the news for defending the administration’s decision to redact transcripts between law enforcement and the terrorist, Omar Mateen, during his attack.

Judge Jeanine: Why Hillary Clinton is Confident She’s in the Clear on Private Email Server Crimes

ONE MORE BIG LIE AND COVERUP FROM OBAMA AND CLINTON

Why would anyone vote for Hillary Clinton when what Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are doing in the cover up of the private Email server. Judge Jeanine connects the dots, why is Hillary so confident she is in the clear? How could some one so corrupt ever run for president, let alone win it. So why is she so confident, because Barack Obama was just as complicit in her dealings.

The Fix is in …

Federal Grand Jury Could Charge Wife, Noor Salman, of Orlando Nightclub Shooter Omar Mateen

WHAT DID SHE KNOW AND WHY DIDN’T SHE SAY ANYTHING?

Is it possible that the deadliest mass shooting in American history could have easily been prevented? It certainly is starting to look that way. A federal grand jury has been convened to look into possible wrongdoing by the wife, Noor Salman, of the gunman who killed 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub. Possible criminal charges could be brought against her. As reported at NBC News, Noor Salman feared he was going to attack a gay nightclub overnight Saturday and pleaded with him not to do anything violent, but failed to warn police after he left. WHO DOES THIS? How on earth do you dot say something? She feared he was going to go to the Pulse nightclub and shoot someone and she still did not notify the authorities. UNREAL.

A federal grand jury has been convened to look into possible wrongdoing by the wife of the gunman who killed 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub, and criminal charges could be brought against her early as Wednesday, a law enforcement source said.

Omar Mateen’s wife, Noor Salman, knew of his plans for what became the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, said the law enforcement source who has been briefed on the matter.

“It appears she had some knowledge of what was going on,” said U.S. Senator Angus King, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which received a briefing on the attack.

“She definitely is, I guess you would say, a person of interest right now and appears to be cooperating and can provide us with some important information,” King told CNN.

Salman was with Mateen when he cased out possible targets for an attack in the past two months, including the Disney World resort in April, then a shopping complex called Disney Springs and the Pulse nightclub in early June, CNN and NBC reported.

2 Year Old Toddler Missing After Alligator Drags Boy Away into the Water at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (Update: Toddler Lane Graves Body Recovered)

HORRIFYING

A 2 year old boy is still missing after he was attacked and dragged into the water by an alligator at the Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa Tuesday night around 9:20 pm. According to accounts, the Nebraska family of five was relaxing on the shoreline when the alligator attacked the boy. The father entered the water and tried to pry the child from the gator, but was unsuccessful.  Orange County Sheriff’s deputies are using sonar to search the man-made lake, with help from a helicopter and 10-person dive team. The alligator was said to be between 4 and 7 feet long.  The search continues for the child in the Seven Seas Lagoon for hours in a search and recovery effort but had not found him.

Jeff Williamson with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office stated, “We just want to keep searching and searching and searching until we can’t search anymore.” According to the press conference this morning, officials are still treating this as a search and rescue. Sadly, this does not look good at all.

UPDATE I: 4 Alligators Found in nearby waters overnight … none involved with attack on missing boy.

Lane Graves

UPDATE II: The Body of 2 Year Old Lane Graves recovered by Divers.

Heart-breaking, simply unimaginably heart-breaking. The body of 2 year old Lane Graves was found by divers Wednesday about 6 feet beneath the water in the man made lagoon where the boy had been attacked by an alligator the night before.

The body of a 2-year-old boy snatched by an alligator at a Disney resort was found underwater, ending a desperate search that began as a rescue operation and eventually became a grim recovery effort, officials in Florida said.

Divers found the boy’s body “completely intact” Wednesday about six feet beneath the surface of the massive, man-made lagoon, not far from the area where he was attacked the previous night, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said Wednesday afternoon.

The sheriff identified the toddler as Lane Graves of Elkhorn, Neb. While a formal identification is pending, “there is no reason to believe that the body that was recovered is not that of Lane Graves,” Demings said.
