    When news of the Parkland school shooting first broke, it resonated with 17-year-old Naomi Giancola. A junior at Midwood High School in Brooklyn, New York – some 1,200 miles away from Marjory Stoneman Douglas, the Florida high school where a gunman murdered 17 students and faculty on Feb. 14 – Giancola immediately thought the tragedy could have easily happened at her own school. “It really hit home because I’m in high school. That could have been my school, that could have been my friends, that could have been me that was shot or running away,” Giancola told Fox News. So...

    President Trump is right. Our trading partners—particularly China, Japan, and Mexico—are taking America to the woodshed. Consider that China steals more than half a trillion dollars in American intellectual property every single year. This is one of the reasons America’s trade deficit with China is so massive. For example, in 2010 Chinese companies stole high-speed rail designs from American firms, thereby depriving them of hundreds of billions in potential revenues. Such theft occurs in nearly every industry, whether it’s software programs or branded consumer goods. And the worst part? We let it happen. The globalist GOP refuses to punish China...

I suspect Algore is becoming a tad frosty AND grumpy since his Globalist, NWO GLOBALONEY WARMING SCAM is falling apart before his eyes. Not to worry about old Al. The $500 million or so he's scammed over the years will allow him to stay snug - not to mention crazy - as the proverbial bedbug he's become.

    A former substitute elementary school teacher has developed a gunshot alarm system that would work similarly to a fire alarm inside a school building alerting teachers, students and first responders to an active shooter. Stacy Jax, a former substitute teacher in Wisconsin, first came up with the idea in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that left 20 children dead in 2012. “When Sandy Hook happened, I really identified with my child being in that classroom or being in that classroom as a teacher, which made it really hit home,” Jax told ABC News.(snip) Sensors are placed...

    Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky.. But... Monday September 5th, 2005 In 1962, the government of these United States joined the governments of Canada, Europe and South America and evicted the Lord God Creator of the Universe, Christ Jesus, from the body politic and the public school system. That void was immediately replaced by satan. Abortion became legal, the destruction of the marriage via no fault divorces became the law of the land, adultery, homosexuality, and promiscuous behavior became accepted norms. Fathers were degraded and prohibited by law from punishing their children with a strap,...

    President Trump's campaign committee announced Tuesday it has rehired former national spokeswoman Katrina Pierson to serve as a senior adviser of grassroots outreach. Pierson was Trump's first formal spokesperson after he launched his campaign in June 2015. She stayed on staff through the campaign, but later jumped to America First Policies. On Monday, Trump's personal assistant John McEntee was fired due to a problem with his background check. McEntee was also named on Tuesday to Trump's campaign, which he previously served on during the 2016 election. McEntee will now work as a senior adviser for campaign operations.

    This is just sad. Fox News host Jesse Watters is reportedly divorcing his wife after an affair with a 25-year-old subordinate was uncovered. The New York Daily News has the exclusive report: The network’s prominent host Jesse Watters — who dined on Monday with President Trump — is in the midst of divorce due to an affair with a 25-year-old associate producer. Watters’ wife, Noelle Watters, filed for divorce in October. The couple has twin girls. Sources said the 39-year-old host informed the network of his adulterous relationship with Emma DiGiovine shortly after Noelle filed divorce papers.
  • Wendy Davis May Replace Cecile Richards as CEO of Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

    It is only speculation at this point but there is discussion that late-term abortion activist Wendy Davis may replace Cecile Richards as the CEO of the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Davis is the former Texas state legislator who earned national infamy after she filibustered a Bill to ban late-term abortions. She then ran for governor and lost by a mile to pro-life Texas Governor Greg Abbott. She was so extreme on abortion that even many Hispanic Democrats who have never voted Republican before cast ballots for Abbott. Since losing the election, Davis has been on the speaking circuit and the...

    The White House has fired Steve Goldstein, the undersecretary of public affairs at the State Department, hours after replacing his boss, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.According to reports, the decision was made because Goldstein contradicted President Trump’s account of Tillerson’s firing when he stated that the former Exxon Mobile CEO was “unaware of the reason” he was being let go.

    American Thinker ^ | March 13, 2018 | Rick Moran
    Special Counsel Robert Mueller is invoking a new charge in his Captain Queeg search for the lost strawberries. He is looking to tie Trump and his aides to a "conspiracy to defraud the government charge." What makes this such a stretch is that Mueller apparently doesn't have to tie it to a criminal action. This puts a lot more of Trump's aides in danger of being ensnared in Mueller's ever widening net.

    For more than two months, the FBI has failed to abide by a judge’s order to turn over all of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s text messages, emails and SMS phone messages to a government watchdog group that has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a former senior FBI special agent. The communications in question are related to McCabe’s wife’s unsuccessful run for Virginia State senate and might also contain invaluable information on McCabe’s role in the Bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server used to send classified information, several former FBI sources and a government official told...

    Contrasting styles of how to cope with differing religions in schools were demonstrated recently in Massachusetts and Germany. In Massachusetts librarians at Simmons College in Boston issued The Anti-Oppression Library Guide to promote equality and limit religious persecution. The Guide urges students to "refrain from using trigger words like 'Merry Christmas' or 'God bless you' after someone sneezes because these words constitute microaggressions against Muslims. Muslims don't celebrate Christmas. And the notion that God should bless a non-Muslim is offensive to their faith." The Guide warns that "even unintentional or inadvertent use of such trigger words could unleash a violent...

    A federal judge has frozen plans to require all products containing the widely popular herbicide glyphosate to display a Proposition 65 warning in a landmark ruling that could signal the turning of the tide for California's nanny-state regulations. The decision by Federal District Judge William Shubb represents a significant blow to both to the much maligned Proposition 65 and the organization that accounts for so many of its listings, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Shubb's ruling is a major victory for states' rights – due to the size of California's economy, its overregulation spills over into other...

    The House Intelligence Committee has ended the Russian collusion probe and concludes that there is no evidence that there was any collusion. Republicans who control the House Intelligence Committee ended an investigation into the 2016 presidential election over intense objections from Democrats, saying they found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian operatives. The committee’s GOP leaders announced their decision on Monday, adding that they plan to release a report soon on their findings. The probe -- originally intended to be bipartisan -- is ending even though an inquiry by Special Counsel Robert Mueller remains underway...

    omedian Owen Benjamin is a rising star in the battle for free speech and common sense. Using comedy as a weapon against left wing thought control, Benjamin has faced major criticism in the entertainment industry. In fact, SJWs in Hollywood have called for him to be blackballed because he dared to say that injecting hormones into 3 year old children to “transition” them into another gender is wrong. “The Big Bear,” as his online fans “The Unbearables” call Benjamin, is known for immediately adding jokes about current events into his stand up sets. So it’s no surprise that last weekend...

    Both Southern and Robinson told Fox News that the material being referred to was a social experiment in which they passed around a fake ‘LGBT for Islam UK’ poster that said: ‘Allah is Gay, Allah is Trans, Allah is Lesbian, Allah is Intersex, Allah is Feminist, Allah is Queer, Allah is All of Us.’ The experiment in Luton, which has a significant Islamic population, was in response to a Vice article that asked whether Jesus was gay, and was conducted to show what the Islamic reaction would be if a similar claim was made about Allah. Robinson said they were...

    When President Donald Trump will visit the border wall prototypes Tuesday in San Diego County, he may have a favorite design in mind, but getting the votes in Congress to secure financing still remains a hurdle. Then again, one California farm leader in the state's Central Valley — the biggest agricultural region where growers and ranchers have relied on immigrant labor for decades — has come up with what he thinks is a border wall funding solution. And it doesn't involve using American taxpayers' money or funds from Mexico's government. (Big long snip) According to Cunha, raising money for the...
