    A massive police presence and the lockdown of three college campuses in Davie led to the eventual discovery of a man with a colorful toy gun that apparently launched the incident. About 1 a.m. Friday, Davie police tweeted out a picture of the gun that was found after the lockdown had been lifted. An officer found the man walking with the toy gun on Stirling Road, police said. Davie police conducted an extensive search of the FAU campus while helicopters flew overhead. Police presence was heavy throughout the area just south of Interstate 595 and Davie Road.

    A friend of mine’s third-grade daughter came home from school a few weeks ago with tears streaming down her cheeks. “My teacher say we only have 10 years before the oceans rise, and we are under water,” she moaned. “Are we all going to die?” That’s a heavy burden to place on the shoulders of a 9-year-old. Gloomy stories of the coming apocolypse have become commonplace in schools, textbooks, churches, movies and even children’s bedtime stories. The Wicked Witch of the West and Darth Vader have been replaced by the oil companies and auto company CEOs. This over-the-top campaign of...
  • If You Can't Sell Your Hysteria to Adults, Try Kids

    Townhall ^ | 09/24/2019 | Dennis Prager
    The entire American left -- the mainstream media, the environmentalist movement and Democratic politicians in particular -- are celebrating the involvement of teenagers and even younger children in protesting the world's "inaction" with regard to global warming. And not just the American left, of course. The left throughout the world is celebrating. A 16-year-old Swedish girl whose contempt for adults is breathtaking is an international hero. Congressional Democrats invited her to testify in Congress, and the United Nations has likewise invited her. The mayor and city council of New York City further politicized their city's public schools by allowing students...

    Never before has a boon to public health been met with such hysteria and ingratitude. Vaping is almost all upside in comparison with traditional smoking, a wanton destroyer of health and lives, and yet the nation is in the grip of a panic about e-cigarettes. In a rarity for the Trump era, the anti-vaping sentiment jumps traditional geographic and political bounds, running from the Oval Office to San Francisco, from President Donald Trump to his most fervent enemies. Trump announced a Food and Drug Administration ban on flavored e-cigarettes last week, while not too long ago the San Francisco Board...
  • Parade panic in NJ: the terrorists have succeeded in scaring public officials, if not the public

    09/13/2019 10:17:36 AM PDT · by Coleus · 15 replies
    After the 9/11 attacks, we began to hear that cliche about how “the terrorists will have won” if we let ourselves become so consumed with fear that we no longer act rationally. Well, the future is now. That’s my reaction to that decision to cancel the annual Labor Day parade in South Plainfield because a guy left some fireworks in a bar in Sea Bright. When I got an email from the Governor’s Office Monday morning saying this year’s parade had been canceled, I figured it might be because of the weather. -snip- Nope. It soon turned out that the...

    Back in May I wrote here about the newest celebrity among the climatistas, the Swedish schoolgirl Greta Thunberg who was adorning the cover of Time magazine, giving TED talks, appearing at the World Economic Forum, and, soon, speaking at UN climate change summit of some kind. This, after sailing across the Atlantic to get to New York to avoid the carbon footprint of a plane flight, never mind that she made the voyage in a sailboat made largely from oil and constructed in an energy-intensive manufacturing process, and never mind that a crew of four is going to be flown...

    Jane Fonda: Here’s what happened when I went door-knocking in Pennslyvania Jane Fonda is an actress and activist. I’m scared. I’m scared for our democracy, for our ability to live together in community across lines of race, class and religion. I’m scared for my grandchildren and for the planet. The country is contorted and polarized, with the flames of hate fanned by leaders at the highest level. But I saw a path forward recently in Scranton, Pa., where I spent a hot, humid evening knocking on doors with Working America. (By the way, when I do this, I only give...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 86, underwent three weeks of radiation treatment for a “localized malignant tumor” found on her pancreas on July 31st. The US Supreme Court disclosed Friday that Ginsburg received treatment this summer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. And the left is in full panic mode because Trump may just get to choose his third SCOTUS seat soon. Ginsburg’s replacement is a huge deal because it would be the first liberal SCOTUS seat that would swing conservative. The left is melting down and hoping for a miracle.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - They were bound to get noticed, and that was likely the point. Around two-dozen members of the Proud Boys, along with Bikers for Trump, walked along Sawmill Road on Saturday, carrying various flags.

Beth Liston, a Democrat who represents Ohio's District 21, which covers Dublin and Worthington. "I’m concerned," Liston said.

    Pepe the Frog, a symbol associated with America's alt-right, has emerged as a pro-democracy freedom fighter in Hong Kong. Hong Kong protesters view Pepe the Frog as one of them — a character that can be sympathetic to their cause and struggles. Matt Furie, the artist behind Pepe the Frog, wrote in a Time magazine essay asserting that "I, the creator, say that Pepe is love." Visit INSIDER's homepage for more stories. Pepe the Frog is getting an image makeover this summer. The cartoon frog with the bulging eyes and wide smile has, for years, been associated with America's alt-right...

    Massive Stampede In Times Square After Active Shooter Fears By Avi Abelow - August 7, 2019 This video is a sign of the scary times we live in. While there was no shooter at Times Square, the scare of one created a massive stampede. People literally ran out of their shoes, people and children fell and were stepped on, yet thankfully there were only light injuries from this event which could have ended much, much worse. In general, the Western world is a scarier place than it used to be with terror attacks happening every once in a while. Specifically,...

Scarborough coined a new nickname for McConnell, calling him “Moscow Mitch” because the senator from Kentucky is “aiding and abetting” Russia President Vladimir Putin in his attempt to “subvert U.S. democracy.”

    After Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway failed to appear to testify on her Hatch Act violations before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Monday, Democrats, watchdog and advocacy groups called for her to be fired and even put in prison. White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, in a letter to the committee's chairman Elijah Cummings, wrote, "Ms. Conway cannot be compelled to testify before Congress with respect to matters related to her service as a senior adviser to the president" and that "the President has directed Ms. Conway not to appear at the Committee's scheduled hearing on Monday, July...

    SPRINGFIELD — Country rock band Confederate Railroad has been barred from performing at an Illinois state fair because of its use of the Confederate flag, setting off a firestorm by southern Illinois fans who believe they’re under Chicago liberals’ thumb of political correctness. The band was scheduled to appear Aug. 27 at the DuQuoin State Fair , but Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration canceled the appearance last week. “This administration’s guiding principle is that the state of Illinois will not use state resources to promote symbols of racism,” Pritzker spokeswoman Emily Bittner said. “Symbols of hate cannot and will not represent...

    Bret Easton Ellis, noted American author, appeared on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Wednesday and talked about the continued reaction of “hysterical liberals” to President Trump. The author of "Less Than Zero," "American Psycho" and "The Rules of Attraction" said that today’s political climate has created an environment in which anyone who doesn’t “adamantly condemn” Trump with “a hysterical overreaction” is deemed colluding with the president.
