Holocaust Museum Shooter a 9/11 'Truther' Fitting a Left-Wing Extremist Profile

News outlets are doing their best job to try to connect the Holocaust Museum shooting and Tiller shooting incidents as cases of "right-wing extremism."

We see little from the media about the politically motivated shooting of a U.S. soldier in Arkansas by a Muslim extremist.

In any case, the man accused of killing a security guard at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. on June 10, James W. von Brunn, left a trail of unhinged writings around the internet, not unlike the rantings you can find on any liberal blog like Daily Kos or The Huffington Post.

For example, von Brunn unleashed his hatred of both Presidents Bush and other "neo-conservatives" in online essays.

A cursory glance at "white supremacist" writings reveals a hatred of, say, big corporations that is virtually indistinguishable from that of anti-globalization activists.

Von Brunn's advocacy of 9/11 conspiracy theories also gives him an additional commonality with individuals on the far-left.

FBI agents visited the offices of the conservative Weekly Standard magazine yesterday after the shooting and told employees they'd found the magazine's address with the gunman who may have also targeted the publication for violence.

Too, this shooting occurred shortly after President Obama's former mentor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, blamed "the Jews" for his lack of access to his former parishioner.

While I am loathe to commit an egregious excersize in cosmic sociology, it is interesting to point out facts that hang in the balance.

Simply put, perhaps von Brunn is nothing more than one of the black-helicopter fearing mad-hatters so common in a society populated by 300 million people.

American Medical Association Opposes Obama Care

The American Medical Association is letting Congress know that it will oppose creation of a government-sponsored insurance plan, which President Obama and many other Democrats are planning to push on the American people.
"The A.M.A. does not believe that creating a public health insurance option for non-disabled individuals under age 65 is the best way to expand health insurance coverage and lower costs. The introduction of a new public plan threatens to restrict patient choice by driving out private insurers, which currently provide coverage for nearly 70 percent of Americans.”

If private insurers are pushed out of the market, the group said, “the corresponding surge in public plan participation would likely lead to an explosion of costs that would need to be absorbed by taxpayers.”

What Stimulus? Obama Makes Even More Promises

President Barack Obama promised Monday to deliver more than 600,000 jobs through his $787 billion stimulus plan this summer, with federal agencies pumping billions into primarily government jobs.

However, the promise of more jobs seems at the very least ingenious, as many of the promised jobs Obama announced Monday already were in the works.

While Obama and his supporters continue to blame Bush for the bad economy, the unemployment rate has now now risen to 9.4 percent, the highest in more than 25 years. Hundreds of thousands of Americans continue to lose jobs each month.

Obama has claimed as many as 150,000 jobs saved or created by his stimulus plan so far, a number that cannot be measured nor verified, even as government reports have shown the economy has lost more than 1.6 million jobs since Congress approved funding for the program in February.

In short, we'll know the stimulus is working when, and only when, the unemployment numbers actually start to decline, as opposed to being less than expected.
