    Nothing brings together Americans quite like tragedy. And that's exactly what happened in El Paso, Texas on Friday when Antonio Basco held a funeral for his wife of 22 years, Margie Reckard. She was killed during the El Paso shooting earlier this month and had no other relatives in the area besides her husband.Antonio invited strangers, anyone who was willing to pay their respects to his beloved wife, to her funeral. A Twitter post by CBS' David Begnaud went viral with the invite. This is Antonio Basco.His wife of 22 years, Margie, was murdered in El Paso.Mr. Basco says he...

    The El Paso shootings were horrific. Patrick Wood Crusius, a crazed man with white supremacist views, gunned down over 20 people at a local Walmart on August 3 and wounded scores more. He was targeting Mexicans. His manifesto is littered with racial overtones, yes, but he noted that his views predated Trump’s 2016 win, that Republicans are terrible, and that a lot of people have to die to in order to maintain the sustainability of the planet. There is an eco-terror angle that makes up the core of his manifesto that the media is ignoring. Eco-terrorism isn’t an activity of...

    One thing about tragedies: They reveal people for who they really are. In the past two weeks, we've learned a lot about our media and political class. Our country endured two separate and horrifying mass shootings, one in El Paso, Texas, and the other in Dayton, Ohio. Between them, at least 31 people were murdered. Two massacres, back to back. It's tempting to look for themes that connect them, but if there are any, they're not political. One gunman appeared to be a Trump voter. The other supported Sen. Elizabeth Warren. There's no obvious ideological lesson here. But that hasn't...

    Q: When we see Serena holding Nichole, it might also call to mind the picture of Melania Trump holding the El Paso baby who was orphaned in the recent shooting. A: I dont blame you for seeing similarities there. Anyone who feels the same way about the presidency and everything that brings up, theyre going to look at that picture and think of Serena immediately. I totally get it.

    The manifesto that the El Paso shooter posted before his deadly rampage reveals that, along with hate for immigrants, he held a radicalized view of mankinds relationship to nature. The manifesto itself was titled The Inconvenient Truth About Me, an apparent homage to the many false narratives presented in Al Gores climate documentary. The first two sentences pretty much sum up the four-page screed: In general, I support the Christchurch shooter and his manifesto. This attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas. The Christchurch reference embraces the manifesto of the killer of 51 Muslims who called himself...

    In his first statement following the shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH, former President Obama has come forward with an aggressive plan for Democrats: Do more, and consider passing gun confiscation laws. His response came in a Tweet, where the former President seems to blame President Donald Trump for the shooting in El Paso, regurgitating the same talking points that CNN has been spewing since the moment the shooting occurred. Not only that, but Obama seems to insinuate the the United States, which elected him, a black man, as President, is white supremacist, stating that the shooter acted...

    On Saturday The Gateway Pundit contributor Byron McKeeby pointed out that the shooter was a committed progressive. It is clear from his words that he is a PROGRESSIVE white nationalist what was once defined as a Nazi. This is not to say hes a Democrat or a Republican, but he is without question a progressive. All you have to do is read his manifesto to see the obvious tell-tale signs. Under his section titled Economic Reasons for the attack, the shooter states: In the near future, America will have to initiate a basic universal income to prevent widespread poverty...

    EL PASO, Texas (AP) A young gunman opened fire in an El Paso, Texas, shopping area packed with as many as 3,000 people during the busy back-to-school season Saturday, leaving 20 dead and more than two dozen injured. ~snip~ Adriana Quezada, 39, said she was in the womens clothing section of Walmart with her two children when she heard gunfire. But I thought they were hits, like roof construction, she said of the shots. Her 19-year-old daughter and 16-year-old son threw themselves to the ground, then ran out of the store through an emergency exit. They were not hurt,...

    Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush issued a statement that called on all Americans to stand against "white terrorism" Saturday after a gunman who espoused white supremacist views in a manifesto killed at least 18 in El Paso. Bush, son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), said Saturday evening that "white terrorism" was a "real and present threat that we must all denounce and defeat." "I believe fighting terrorism remains a national priority," Bush said. "And that should include standing firm against white terrorism." "There have now been multiple attacks from self-declared white terrorists here in the...

    It was two days of contrast that tell us about America 2019. In El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, following the mass murders of Saturday and Sunday morning, the local folks on camera -- police, prosecutors, mayors, FBI and city officials -- were nonpartisan, patient, polite and dignified in the unity and solemnity of their grief for their dead and wounded. But for the Democratic presidential candidates, the El Paso atrocity was like a loose football in the Super Bowl. A mad scramble broke out over who would be first and most savage in indicting President Donald Trump for moral...
