Scalise: There's No 'Magic Law' That Can Stop Mass Shootings
Lauretta Brown
Posted: Feb 16, 2018

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) spoke Thursday evening on Fox about the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida and his problems with the Democrats’ immediate push for gun control in response to the shooting. Scalise, himself the victim of a shooting in June, also emphasized the importance of prayer in reponse to such tragedies, saying prayer helped him and his family when he was fighting for his life in the hospital last year.

“Any time there is any kind of tragedy, either shooting or bombing whatever, immediately you've got a group of legislators that go run out and start calling for gun control to take away the rights of law-abiding citizens,” Scalise told Fox’s Laura Ingraham. “Look at their bills, read their bills, they have nothing to do with these kinds of shootings.”

“If you think there’s some magic, unicorn law that’s going to stop it from happening, just keep in mind that he violated probably dozens of laws already, including murdering people,” he said. “That's against the law."

7 Simple Steps to Eliminate School Shootings Overnight   Kevin McCullough  Posted: Feb 18, 2018 

After days of bitter hurt, anger, deep savage argument, and plenty of non-thinking social media trolls blurting whatever comes to mind through their thumbs, it’s time we as Americans begin a genuine discussion about how to stop the next school shooting from occurring.

It’s important that we do this even though gun deaths are by no means the most dangerous form of death in America today.

In 2017, with 300,000,000-plus guns in the hands of Americans, there were 15,549 gun deaths. This ranks less than half the number of automobile deaths even though there are fewer cars in existence than guns. In 2017, there were 253,000,000 cars in existence and 41,000 auto deaths.

Nonetheless, the rhetoric is so loud and the anger so tightly wound that a way forward needs to begin. Genuinely good people on both sides of this issue disagree. Pro-gun people believe that owning a gun is one step of many in helping to keep their families safe and their government from becoming too tyrannical. Anti-gun people believe that the mere existence of a gun is a danger to all. But note that both sets of people desire safety in general.

With very little expertise, but with a robust research ability, my staff and I began looking at this issue this week from the perspective of what could be done that would be tangible, but also acceptable to both sides of the discussion. Here’s seven simple steps that can and should be implemented overnight across the country and in similar fashion school shootings would be eliminated. This list is not exhaustive but is a starting point where good-willed people can come together to make a significant difference now.

1. Metal Detectors In Every School: 
2. Enforce Everything:
3. Perform Active Shooter Drills:
4. Reinforce Doors, Windows, Buses, Locks:
5. Recruit Retired Military & Law Enforcement: 
6. Arm All Appropriate Personnel:
7. Publicize Consequence:

What In The Fresh Hell Is This? Reporter Suggests More Abortions Would Have Prevented Florida Shooting          Matt Vespa Posted: Feb 17, 2018

What In The Fresh Hell Is This? Reporter Suggests More Abortions Would Have Prevented Florida Shooting
Maybe it’s the proliferation of social media in our daily lives that has
exposed us to this insanity, but we’ve seriously gone off the deep
end. For some abortions rights supporters apparently, the Florida
shooter wouldn’t have been able to commit this tragic crime if his
birth mother had aborted him. That’s what Israeli-American reporter
and former MTV Europe VJ Becky Griffin insinuated on Twitter.

“Woman puts baby up for adoption, he grows up to be a violent
youngman who will spend the rest of his life in prison for a mass
murder. Tellme more about how abortions are wrong,” she tweeted.

Well, you can see how this turned out. It was a total dumpster fire,
or at least that’s what we can obtain from her other subsequent
tweets inwhich she complains how her timeline has blown up, and
how Twitter is a mob of fools. Oh, she says she wants to have a
conversation, butnot with a mob. Translation: I only want to talk
about abortion with people who agree with me; nice End of
Discussion play right there. It’s not that she’s wrong, folks. It’s just
that we’re all out of touch or something.


Facebook Vice President of Ads Slams 'Main Media Narrative' of Russian Interference   Timothy Meads  Posted: Feb 17, 2018

Facebook Vice President of Ads Slams 'Main Media Narrative' of Russian Interference

Facebook’s Vice President of Ads, Rob Goldman, tweeted
last night his excitement in the charges brought forth by
the FBI against Russian actors who attempted to influence
the 2016 presidential election. Goldman also trashed the
media's coverage of Russian interference, asserting that
many are intentionally ignoring key facts in order to fit the
“main media narrative of Trump and the election.”

Yesterday, Special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13
Russian nationals for “interfering in the U.S. election
process. In a detailed 37-page report, the FBI explains how
the defendants used false identities to stage political
protests, rallies, and recruit Americans in their conspiracy,”
as noted by Cortney. Deputy Attorney General Rod
Rosenstein emphasized that no American knew they were
“communicating with Russians.”

After those statements, Goldman took to Twitter to explain
Facebook’s role in the ongoing investigation. He pointed
out a glaring fact that most anti-Trumpers refuse to accept
- a majority of the Russian interference via Facebook
occurred after the election and swaying the outcome of the
presidential race was not the main goal.

The author of this article has to be a democrat.....The part highlited in yellow,..These "athletes" don't have to LIKE Trump BUT,,,The should not go on GLOBAL TV and condem Trump and Pence in front of the whole world. .Remember the George Bush era, the country group "Dixie Chicks" career was ruined from remarks they made on stage in UK about Pres. Bush, not by fans but by their peers......And to the 2nd part highlited in red, the democrat BLOCKADE won't allow the Trump administration to move on.....The Dems never did nor will accept the results of thee election ! ! !..

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea – Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that Americans are now rooting for their fellow Americans to fail at the Olympic Games.
First it was Adam Rippon, then Lindsey Vonn, then Gus Kenworthy. All three dared to speak out critically against the leaders of our country, something that is about as American as apple pie, and very much in keeping with the First Amendment.
But exercising that right comes at a cost these days for America’s athletes. A sizable slice of the American public has decided that their allegiance to President Trump and Vice President Pence supercedes their red, white and blue devotion to their countrymen and women competing abroad in the largest regularly scheduled peacetime gathering of the world.
One would think that because criticism of Trump is so widespread across the country, his fans would ignore it by now. They didn’t lose the election; they won it. Declare victory, move on and wave the flag when Rippon takes the ice or Vonn and Kenworthy take to the slopes.
But no. These anti-American Americans become so rattled by the honest exchange of opinions that their anger gets the best of them. Then they end up treating a once-in-a-generation U.S. sports icon like Vonn as if she were a mortal enemy from the old CCCP.

FBI's Statement on Florida Shooter Will Blow Your Mind

FBI's Statement on Florida Shooter Will Blow Your Mind

Revelations that good Samaritans warned the FBI about mass shooter Nikolaus Cruz months in advance fit a disturbing pattern in which the failure to follow standard operating procedures unwittingly enabled a deranged killer.

First, the FBI received a warning about Cruz after he posted a disturbing comment on YouTube saying that he aspired to become a "professional school shooter."

On January 5, 2018, a person close to Cruz contacted the FBI's tip line to report their concerns. The caller told agents about the accused shooter's access to firearms, self-professed desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disconcerting social media posts. They revealed their anxieties about the potential of Cruz carrying out a school shooting.

In a damning press release from the FBI's National Press Office, the Bureau concedes that agents ignored protocols after receiving the January 5 call.

The FBI never reported the tip to its Miami field office, and no further investigation occurred.

FBI Director Christopher Wray offered a mea culpa:
“We are still investigating the facts. I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter, as well as reviewing our processes for responding to information that we receive from the public. It’s up to all Americans to be vigilant, and when members of the public contact us with concerns, we must act properly and quickly.

“We have spoken with victims and families, and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy. All of the men and women of the FBI are dedicated to keeping the American people safe, and are relentlessly committed to improving all that we do and how we do it.”
So, NRA Donations Are Stained With Blood, But Planned Parenthood's Are Just And Moral? Posted: Feb 16, 2018  Matt Vespa

So, NRA Donations Are Stained With Blood, But Planned Parenthood's Are Just And Moral?

Let’s cut the holier than thou antics. Every time there’s a mass shooting and politicians from the GOP offer their thoughts and prayers to the victims, the liberal media doles out the tired National Rifle Association donation talking point. Here’s how much money NRA gave to x congressman or x senator. Okay—what’s the issue? We have a Second Amendment. We have a constitutional right to own firearms. You don’t think organizations will spring up and support this piece of our Bill of Rights? 

In all, spare me the holier than thou antics, left wingers. When I want to be told about the sanctity of life from those who get money or support an organization that aborts children, I’ll let you know. It's always the Second Amendment advocacy groups that get slammed for donating to politicians who support their agenda. It's just so tiring.

The FBI Proves It's Incompetence Yet Again 02/16/2018 Source: The Hill by: Max Greenwood 

The FBI said Friday that it failed to follow "protocols" when it received a tip earlier this year about the teenageraccused of killing 17 in a mass shooting at a South Florida high school.

In January, person close to the accused shooter, 19-yearold Nikolas Cruz, called the FBI's public tipline and raised concerns about his gun ownership, desire to kill and warnedof a possible school shooting.

But the FBI never reported the tip to its Miami field office
or investigated the claim, the bureau said Friday.

Under established protocols, the informationprovided by the caller should have been assessed as a "potential threat to life," the FBI said in a statement.The information then should have been forwarded to the FBI Miami Field office,where appropriate investigative steps would have been taken.

Analysis: With Nunes memo release, Trump barrels toward showdown with Mueller
, USA TODAY  Feb. 2, 2018

President Donald Trump says a newly declassified GOP memo alleging FBI abuses shows, "a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves." (Feb. 2) AP

WASHINGTON — President Trump is hurtling toward a potential showdown with special counsel Robert Mueller over the Russia investigation, and he has some decisions to make.
After approving Friday's release of a disputed memo written by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes over the objections of his own FBI director and intelligence community, Trump's next moves will be critical for the ongoing federal investigation into Russia's election interference and possible collusion with Trump associates. 
The president is also under investigation by Mueller for possible obstruction of justice in the Russia probe – and any further attempt to wrest control of the probe threatens to unleash a political crisis.
Some possible flashpoints would include: 
► Dismissing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the special counsel's investigation; 
► Seeking a way to fire Mueller himself; 
► Refusing to cooperate with Mueller's investigators, who are seeking an interview with the president. 
One thing seems clear: The president and his allies are already laying the groundwork to cast doubt on the Russia investigation – especially if Mueller makes a formal accusation about Trump. 

So...after a year or more, Meuller comes up with charges against 13 Russians, who are in Russia, where Putin is not going to extradite them to the U.S. So...after a collusion with the GOP or Trump, So....Just something to justify the investigation under Meuller and his 1/2 dozen or so DEMOCRAT investigaters on his panel, where it seems all of them were donaters to the Dem. party in one way or another. WHAT A WASTE OF TAXPAYER MONEY. We can't even fact check to see if the charges and indictments are true and/or warrented. Witch hunt or political SCAM ? ?

WASHINGTON — Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 13 Russian nationals and the Russian Internet Research Agency shows a wide range of interference in the 2016 presidential election in favor of Donald Trump and against Hillary Clinton. 
Here are some key points from the indictment:

Unknown Trump official contacted

The Russians reached out to a still-unnamed campaign official at Trump's campaign website to get information on how it was organizing rallies in Florida and New York. They got the official's name from the Facebook page of the real "Florida for Trump" campaign, the indictment said.

More than 100 U.S. people helped

While the Russians coordinated the interference, they worked with more than 100 U.S. citizens, the indictment said. In one case, the Russians learned from an unnamed "real U.S. person that they should focus their activities on 'purple states' like Colorado, Virginia & Florida." The Americans, the indictment said, did not know they were communicating with Russians.


Militia says school shooting suspect was member
Associated Press - Thursday, February 15, 2018

The leader of a white nationalist militia says Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz was a member of his group and participated in paramilitary drills in Tallahassee.
Jordan Jereb told The Associated Press on Thursday that his group wants Florida to become its own white ethno-state. He said his group holds “spontaneous random demonstrations” and tries not to participate in the modern world.
Jereb said he didn’t know Cruz personally and that “he acted on his own behalf of what he just did and he’s solely responsible for what he just did.”
He also said he had “trouble with a girl” and he believed the timing of the attack, carried out on Valentine’s Day, wasn’t a coincidence.
Nineteen-year-old Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder in the shooting.
