    2016 was a tough year for Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz as she was plagued with controversy, and now a judge has ruled that the elections supervisor, Brenda Snipes, in Broward county broke federal and state law by unlawfully destroying ballots that were cast in the primary race that Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz won. The case was brought by Wasserman Schutlz’s opponent who wanted to investigate voting irregularities. As a result, Governor Rick Scott has announced that he’ll be reviewing the Judge’s order and that her office will be monitored. In a written statement, Scott’s office explained that “During the upcoming election,...

    You know your reporting sucks when you’re getting scooped by Russian bots! In early November 2016 the Gateway Pundit posted an article alleging voter fraud in Broward County Florida. ... These attempts by Florida Democrats to alter the election did not sway the election and Donald Trump won in an electoral landslide. ... Earlier today a Florida judge ruled that Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes violated state and federal laws by destroying ballots from a 2016 congressional race while they were the subject of a lawsuit against her office. It looks like the Russian bots were right. So was...

    The he Broward school district’s repeated, emphatic — and it turns out, false — statements that Nikolas Cruz had not been in a controversial disciplinary program fit a pattern of an institution on the defensive and under siege. Facing significant legal and political exposure over the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the district has tried to keep information from the public and put out untrue and misleading statements, frustrating parents who say this is the time for maximum transparency.

    Gun-control activist David Hogg now wants to stop elected politicians from speaking to the National Rifle Association. In a tweet Sunday, Mr. Hogg noted that he had signed a MoveOn.org petition to “Demand Mike Pence cancel his speech to the NRA convention on May 4.” The tweet to Mr. Hogg’s 777,000 Twitter followers links to a petition that makes a similar demand of Nick Ayers, the vice president’s chief of staff. It was unclear whether the threat from Mr. Hogg’s followers would discourage the vice president from going to the Dallas meeting.

    I’ll keep this short. I’m against gun control. Why? We tried it in Australia. By punishing law abiding citizens, we empowered criminals. Australia was safer in the 1950s when guns were treated as tools. But I digress. Here’s another unique pro-gun argument made by the satirist P.J. O’Rourke in 2010’s Don’t Vote! It Just Encourages The B******s (page 165, if you must know): Gun ownership is crucial to the preservation of American freedoms. We may have to shoot Democrats. It happened in 1861 and it could happen again. Just kidding. Sort of. But there are other important arguments in favor...

    Every time there is a mass shooting we get the same old song and dance from the gun control fanatics. You’re sorry this happened? Then you must institute gun control. Oh, you don’t want to do that? Then it’s your fault that it happened. The NRA is bad. They kill people. We must have gun control. Innocent law-abiding Americans are responsible. Don’t you feel bad for the victims? Then institute our gun control agenda that will do nothing to stop the killings. It’s hamhanded, relentless propaganda peddled by smug, self-righteous anti-gun zealots.Well, here are some things you don’t typically see...
  • Student Of Racist “Promposal” Apologizes, Quits All School Events, BLM Threatens

    04/25/2018 1:52:48 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 26 replies
    The Florida high school student who made a racist sign asking his girlfriend to the prom has issued a profuse apology. His family issued a more profuse apology. But the promposal brouhaha is forcing him to forgo all the rest of his high school activities — a decision made in conjunction with the high school administration. There will be no prom, no graduation experience or anything else for him. So, quite a lot of consequences and punishment for a racist, but likely just stupid teenage boy stunt to get a girl. Lesson learned, move on, right? We all know that...

    Parents of Parkland gun control advocates David Hogg and Cameron Kasky assured the media Tuesday that their sons are not homosexual with one another. Here is a photo that Cameron Kasky posted to Twitter, referring to “Prom 2018,” which created a situation in which the young adults’ parents had to clear up gay rumors. Hogg’s activist mother Rebecca Boldrick said that Hogg is not going to prom with Kasky as his date, and Kasky’s father also weighed in on the issue, according to TMZ. “Cameron and David love each other very much, as do the 20 or so other kids...

    Kyle Kashuv is a Parkland student who, just like Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg, was at Douglas High School the day Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 of his classmates. Unlike Gonzalez and Hogg and many other Douglas survivors, Kashuv has been a lone, persistent student voice in favor of gun rights and the Second Amendment. Despite his support for the right to keep and bear arms, Kashuv didn’t own a firearm and had never fired one. That changed over the weekend when he went to a range with his father. He tweeted stills and video of the range session. As...

    Former president Barack Obama is a man who exhibits selective outrage based upon how a tragedy can benefit advancing the utopian vision.  If an event includes changing "the world as it is" into the world Obama thinks it "should be," the former president will commend whomever he has to. With that in mind, recently, via a piece written for Time magazine entitled "Cameron Kasky, Jaclyn Corin, David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez and Alex Wind," Obama praised the five Parkland student-activists who made Time's 100 Most Influential People list.The former president wrote, "America's response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern."  Obama's article...

    Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who touted his own “amazing leadership” after the Parkland school shooting, is facing a no-confidence vote from the union representing his deputies. Jeff Bell, the president of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association, told CNN on Friday that union members had decided to move forward with the vote, which will begin electronically tonight and will close on April 26. “There is a complete failure at the sheriff’s office and he doesn’t recognize it,” Bell said. Calling the vote a “ploy,” Israel said the union “is trying to use the Parkland tragedy as a bargaining tactic...

This follows his boycott of Fox News’s Laura Ingraham, which resulted in her initially losing advertisers and apologizing to him only to have her viewership jump 20 percent. Now Hogg is targeting BlackRock, Vanguard Group, and a few other mutual fund companies for holding gun manufacturers’ stock in their mutual funds. Hogg tweeted:

    Iranian-backed militants are operating across the United States mostly unfettered, raising concerns in Congress and among regional experts that these "sleeper cell" agents are poised to launch a large-scale attack on the American homeland, according to testimony before lawmakers. Iranian agents tied to the terror group Hezbollah have already been discovered in the United States plotting attacks, giving rise to fears that Tehran could order a strike inside America should tensions between the Trump administration and Islamic Republic reach a boiling point. Intelligence officials and former White House officials confirmed to Congress on Tuesday that such an attack is not...
