    TALLAHASSEE -- David Hogg, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, isn’t bothered that his appearances speaking for classmates during the past week have drawn naysayers. Hogg and other students have called for better background checks on gun purchases and laws to keep guns out of the hands of people with mental illnesses, after 17 students and faculty members died last week in a mass shooting at the Broward County high school.

    Numerous pundits have commented in great detail and with far greater expertise than I on the indictments last week issued by Special Counsel Robert Mueller against thirteen Russians for wire and bank fraud, identity theft, and conspiracy to defraud the United States....As an American who cares about our democracy, however, I decided it was essential I read the indictment myself to form my own opinion about it. I advise every American to do the same, using the first link above to download it. My own personal take-aways are as follows:
  • Scarborough Justifies: Parkland Deputy Didn't Go in Because he Was "Overmatched"

    Joe Scarborough said he wasn't justifying the failure of the Parkland deputy to enter the school during the shooting. But that's exactly what Scarborough did. On Morning Joe, Scarborough said: "There actually was a 'good guy with a gun,' as the President and every NRA member will say. There was a good guy with a gun at a school. There was a law enforcement officer with a gun at the school. And he didn't go in. In part, I am sure, because he was overmatched. Now, that's no justification."

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. In a year and a few months, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will have spent more time at the helm of the Israeli government than any other man. The other man is David Ben-Gurion, the Socialist leader who repressed Zionist nationalist movements in Israel by fiat, by law and, as in the Altalena, by murder. That factoid may not matter much to most people, even most Israelis, but it matters a great deal to the remnants of...

    As you know, CNN has a tendency to fake the news. It held a debate in which the Clinton campaign was fed questions ahead of time. Here's a list of their fake news for 2017 alone. Yesterday CNN held a "town hall" in which it propped up Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch to be used as leftist cannon fodder. Wednesday's CNN town hall to promote gun control and gun grabbing was off the rails from the start. So-called moderator Jake Tapper sat back as the wild crowd targeted Republican Senator Marco Rubio (Fla.) with boos and jeers for basically just being there....

    Recognizing that Classical Music has implied White Supremacy for centuries is hard for those that study the art form. In fact, that correlating The Met’s continued programming of dead white men to the rise of White Supremacist tendencies in America is not a far stretch is starting to become apparent to those that follow and review the company’s season announcements. Of course Italian Opera traditions are rich and are the backbone for many composers, but when an American institution, founded on the grounds

    More than two dozen Senate Republicans are urging President Trump to re-engage in Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations.

    There's a redacted version of it in the public domain right now, but Ryan Bundy would like to see full disclosure of a memo written by a Bureau of Land Management agent about the corrupt nature of the federal investigation of the Bundys and their supporters in connection with the Bunkerville Standoff. His motion to unseal Larry Wooten's letter was filed in US District Court in Las Vegas today (Tuesday February 20th). Charged have been dismissed against him in connection with the Bunkerville Standoff, but prosecutors want to reverse US District Judge Gloria M. Navarro's dismissal "with prejudice" of the...

    I checked into YouTube this morning to update on the news.  My favorite reporter, Charles Walton, had been terminated!  I am in shock.  He has been reporting on the Florida school shooting and the Las Vegas Massacre – I guess he found out too much. I then went to my second best source, Dustin Nemos, and discovered what is coming down the Tube.  Dustin is being censored, also, but his channel is still up.  The following video is from Dustin Nemos , and I hope you can watch it. If the video has been removed here are links to inform...

    Being a shooting victim doesn’t make you an expert on ending gun violence. But you wouldn’t know that from watching CNN. It’s been a week since a monster killed 17 people at a Florida high school. The calls for gun control have been reflexive and ambiguous, but the media have found a new mouthpiece — shooting survivors. “Students seize control of gun debate” blared a MSNBC caption. An organization portraying itself as being made up of students announced a March 24 rally in D.C. and other cities called “March For Our Lives.” Some students say they won’t return to class...

    17 people lost their lives in Parkland when Nikolas Cruz committed a mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018. The people range from students to coaches, and they were all doing what they do on a typical school day. Some were at work. Some were in class. Everyone was doing what they were supposed to be doing when they were alerted about the school shooter. The shots rang out, people scrambled, and innocent blood was spilled like broken faucets running continuously until dry. Leftists called for gun control. Right wingers called for mental health...

    Social media and politics go crazy whenever there's a crime that involves a mass shooting and guns. However, there's something that kills a lot more people on a daily basis and we need to talk about that problem before we try to fix a gun issue. America has a massive drug problem right now. Did you know that nearly 64,000 people died of a drug overdose in 2016, and that number is more than the number of people who were killed in the Vietnam War? We need to refocus and put our efforts and political arguments towards drugs because 64,000...

    Joe Scarborough often touts his deep roots in the gun culture, growing up in the South. But either he never knew as much about guns as he’s claimed, or his passion for gun control has made him forget or ignore what he once knew. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough repeatedly claimed that the AR-15, used in Parkland and in other mass shootings, is “more lethal” than the M-16. H/t FReeper SnuffaBolshevik.

Dr. Dustyn Williams of OnlineMedED is an example of someone who now makes millions off of making YouTube videos, and has an inspiring story to go along with it.

    This is a very good message by the Russian Patriarch Kiril. I wish more and more church leaders talked about this and encouraged our youth about the sacredness of a family. Speaking during a sermon Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church addressed the Orthodox youth by saying that, "The creation of the family should be every young person’s goal," RIA Novosti writes. "This, of course, is not the only goal anyone has during their lives. But this is a special ideal for people who clearly understand that the creation of a family, the birth of children, and their education...
