    Well, well, well, look at what Sundance has uncovered. Looks like Paul Ryan and the GOP helped fund Lamb in PA-18.

    I expect nothing less from the snakes in the GOP.

      Good morning. Here is some irony. Ryan is warning about the ramifications of the loss.

      @ RIX:

      The ignorance expressed on many of these ridiculous signs made me think “SMILE! You’re on Stupid Camera!”

      And you know that a month from now, these kids aren’t going to give ONE WIT about gun control, or school safety, or any of the other issues that they were so “passionate” (t/m MSM) yesterday. They got a day out of school. They protested and yelled at the White House and the NRA when they should have marched straight to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office and demanded answers. But it’s so much more attention-grabbing to blame the people that will get you headlines and on TV.

      I wonder what the participation rate would have been if these “involved children” had been told the march would be on Saturday.

      Rush is talking about this Sundance story right now. He’s tracking it down.
      Ryan and the GOP Congress Critters should be exposed if they did this.
      And then I’d like Tucker Carlson to have them on his shown, one by one, and let them explain themselves…..and then fajita them.

      I was reading on Twitter about a teacher that had announced a test scheduled for National Walk Out and Proclaim Your Ignorance About the Issue Day and that there would be no “makeups”- other teachers DEMANED she not give the test. Her basic response was “not gonna happen.”

      Well… it rained so much last night one of our trees fell over blocking the road and I had to cut it up to clear the road, while I was doing that I stepped in a hole, twisted my ankle, tripped over the tree stump, fell on my head and landed in a huge mud puddle, then had to go to the doctor so a vampire could steal my blood.

      It was the laughing and smiling photos they took of themselves and the Boppin’ videos they made that made me want to punch every last one of them in the nose. Peter Wang sacrificed his life; another student helped 20 other students escape and was shot five times. A coach sacrified himself.

      These little creeps were four buildings away, hiding in a closet, “interviewing” each other and ran to cameras.

      They are going to be very surprised to learn that now that the march is over, so is their camera time. Meanwhile, a pro-2A kid named Kyle Kashuv is on Capital Hill, meeting one on one with lawmakers and discussing what is possible to stop this. Oh, and being attacked by the Famewhore Four for his efforts.

      Republican Tim Murphy had been having an affair with psychologist Shannon Edwards, and during a pregnancy scare asked her to have an abortion. She turned out not to be pregnant but the pro-life Murphy opted to resign and that opened up the seat in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district. As the election approached, that scandal gave way to the Parkland shooting.

      “The immediate sequel to the election, meanwhile, is related to the back story. As The Economist noted, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has drawn new lines for the May primaries, so the winner will have to decide whether to run again in a new district. A possible opponent is Shannon Edwards, running as a Republican in Pennsylvania’s 14th district, which under the new plan could become the 18th district.

      Edwards has no regrets for the relationship with Tim Murphy, but she expects it to be used against her. As she told reporters, “My opponents are likely to spend egregious amounts of time and money in an attempt to display my human mistakes for all to see. I was warned. I have been given explanations. I have been told to back down, and I am here to tell you, nevertheless, I will endure.”

      2/3 of all animal deaths last year happened on United. That is way beyond coincidence. They don’t treat their passengers real well either. I fly a lot and one consequence of 9-11 is that the airlines get away with acting like
      tyrants and TSA is a hoax, there is more harassment going on than safety. An exception is Southwest.

      BREAKING REPORT: POTUS Trump Has Decided to Fire National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster

      President Trump has decided to remove H.R. McMaster as his national security adviser and is actively discussing potential replacements, according to five people with knowledge of the plans, preparing to deliver yet another jolt to the senior ranks of his administration.

      Trump is now comfortable with ousting McMaster, with whom he never personally gelled, but is willing to take time executing the move because he wants to ensure both that the three-star Army general is not humiliated and that there is a strong successor lined up, these people said.

      Judicial Watch: Broward County Sheriff’s Office Training Materials Say First One or Two Officers on Scene should ‘Confront the Shooter’

      ‘Remember, every time you hear a gunshot in an active shooter incident; you have to believe that is another victim being killed.’

      Four Officers on Scene at February 14 Parkland Shooting Did Not Enter School Building

      (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released Broward County Sheriff’s Office training and operation materials that specifically dictate that the first one or two officers on the scene of an active shooter incident “will immediately go to confront the shooter.”

      The Broward County Sheriff’s Office’s Standard Operating Procedure and lesson plans for an active shooter incident were obtained by Judicial Watch via a Florida Sunshine Act records request.

      The Broward County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that armed school resource officer Deputy Scot Peterson was first on the scene of the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, but he did not enter the school to confront shooter Nikolas Cruz.

      Three other deputies also arrived on the scene but did not enter, the sheriff’s office said. The Broward County materials direct that if four officers are on the scene of an active shooter incident they are to form a “Quad” formation and enter the building.

      The lesson plan instructs officers to immediately confront a shooter:

      History shows when a suspect is confronted by any armed individual (police, security, concealed carry person) they either shoot it out with that person or kill themselves. Either way, the shooting of innocent bystanders must stop. Now, the first officer or two officers on scene will immediately go to confront the shooter. Military tactics work well in this situation. The two man “bounding overwatch” is our response.

      Using lessons learned from Columbine (the 1999 high school massacre where officers waited for a SWAT team and allowed two shooters to continue) the first four responding officers are directed to form a “Quad” and approach from all directions:

      During Columbine, the response to an ongoing shooting situation was to contain the suspect. After Columbine the International Chiefs of Police addressed the problem with the response and came up with the “Quad” or diamond formation. With the quad, the first four officers to respond entered the building with coverage in all directions. This was critical to address the concerns of officers who previously would not enter and just wait for SWAT.

      Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said during a news conference that “What I saw was a deputy [Peterson] arrive … take up a position and he never went in.” Israel said Peterson should have “went in. Addressed the killer. Killed the killer.”

      The lesson plan clearly states: “If you are on scene or in the area and hear gunshots, you should immediately access what you have and prepare to respond. Remember, every time you hear a gunshot in an active shooter incident; you have to believe that is another victim being killed.”

      The training materials also state that the first officers on the scene will “engage the suspect,” which Peterson did not do. “There are now three teams during Active Shooter Incident [Contact, Extraction and Rescue Task Force]: Contact Team: Is first on scene, 1-4 deputies, they will be actively engaging/searching for suspect (HOT ZONE).”

      @ lobo91:

      they’ll maintain they couldn’t tell what building the shooter was in or something so they didn’t know where to go. Which begs the question why the 2nd police force went in w/o Broward County direction. Wait till we see THEIR report.

I seriously doubt this jerk viewed his job as protecting students so much as he viewed it as “easy money.”

      But Republicans on the panel respected her and regarded her as a fierce protector of her party’s agenda.

      Something you will never see written about a Republican. Ever. The articles written about any Republican CNN adores will always gush about their willingness to work across the aisle or how they were willing to engage in bipartisan objectives

      Well, well, well. Let’s think this thru, shall we?

      So Jacob was suspended because by refusing to leave the classroom, he would have been left unattended, which is against the rules. Which means that the teachers were leaving.

      Were parents notified that the ‘walk out’ was mandatory because otherwise their children would be left illegally unattended? In other words, their children were denied classroom time in order to forcibly attend this walkout. Were parents given the option of keeping their children home?

      I’m not even a lawyer and I could take down the entire school system with this one.

      @ eaglesoars:
      That was my thought also. The school district chose a side and hid behind the walkout. I don’t see it as a gun problem. It was a mental health/bullying problem. The first failures occurred there. If we are looking beyond just the shooters issues into group responsibilities then that student body at that school failed to engage the shooter when he would listen. How to be a crazy loner and not be violent? These mental cases do absorb the violence of the media around them. And sometimes have no calming outlet. If these kids are truly “woke” they would be focused on the mental health issues. But they look and sound more like the zombies in The Walking Dead


    77. 85 | March 16, 2018 3:26 pm

      @ eaglesoars:

      They were forcing the numbers. When I was 16 I was going to school in the Greater Boston Area. There was a huge Anti-Vietnam War rally that was set for October 16th. You needed a NOTE from your parents permitting to you leave school to participate and the teachers were instructed that they were expected to be in their classrooms unless a substitute was assigned. The teachers stayed in their classrooms and merely posted a letter saying they supported the Moritorium even thought they would be at their posts.

      I loved it. All the liberal kids left school at 10:00 a.m. and me and the other conservative students had 3/4ths empty classrooms and had a great one-on-one with the history teacher in the p.m.

      yeah, that too. Most schools have rules about kids being off-campus w/o permission, parental most especially.


    80. 88 | March 16, 2018 3:31 pm

      @ darkwords:

      Everywhere you look there are stories about the kids being FORCED to participate. And there are all sorts of quotes from Principals and Teachers saying “oh when I heard about this I just KNEW our students would want to take part!”

      Except many didn’t and were forced to.

      I do love that many schools told the students if they walked out they’d face detention or suspension and they are enforcing it. Of course, the ACLU is right there saying their “First Amendments Rights” are being violated. BTW, they aren’t sticking up for the kids being hounded for NOT participating.

      Dear ACLU – the school has rules. Because you like the “cause” doesn’t mean they change. I don’t care if 1,000 or 10,000 students in a district wanted to “participate.” The rule is “you don’t get to leave school, if you do these are the consequences.” It would be the same in the workplace. No you cannot leave work to attend this rally unless you have already requested the time off. If you do, you will be fired.

      Harmar won’t be among local communities observing Earth Day on April 22, although the township has scheduled cleanup events later this spring.

      Supervisors on Thursday voted 4-0, with Lee Biermeyer absent, to discontinue the township’s participation in Earth Day after years of being involved.

      The reason, according to Supervisor Bob Seibert, is a lack of public participation.

      Seibert, who suggested the action, said, “I think it’s pretty well worn out with the public.”

      wait, what? Hillary is going to put out a statement later today in response to the criticism of her ‘women vote like their men tell them to’ slur?

      I’ll bet it says something like “I’m really sorry my remarks were so misunderstood by people too stupid to breathe”

      Nah, Hillary will take full responsibility, just like she does for losing the election.

      For your viewing pleasure there will be an event tonight on facebook to discuss wealth inequality.
      It is going to be hosted by……. wait for it…….. Bernie Sanders, Liz Warren and Michael Moore.
      One has three houses on a public servants income, one got wealthy faking to being a minority, and one
      made a boatload making crappy misleading documentaries.
      Let me see, I can watch March Madness or those three. Damn, this is a tough one.

      If I had to watch those three clowns, I’d think about cutting my wrists with a Ritz.

      Samantha Powers issues a thinly veiled threat to Trump. It is bad enough that she looks like she has been beaten
      with a golf shoe, but now she is threatening? These corrupt oligarchs are now hysterical that they are being
      busted. This was an attempted Coup D’ Etat and it splashed back on them. The media led by CNN is trying
      to bail them out. They will not intimidate Trump.

      I’ve been having too much trouble with Pale Moon crashing on me, so I’m going back to Firefox as my default browser. But it’s not pulling up this page, some kind of error with permissions not being set. Any ideas what I need to do?

      Andrew C asked whether your good lady wife had time to translate those two docs from about 2 weeks ago? Not the original speech but the follow up evidential texts?

      If she hasn’t the time let me know and I’ll turn Andrew C off mate.
