    A judge entered a plea of not guilty on Nikolas Cruz's behalf as the teen was arraigned Wednesday in last month's massacre at a South Florida high school -- on the same day students across the country walked out of class to demand stricter gun laws because of the killings. A Broward County grand jury last week indicted the 19-year-old gunman on 17 counts of premeditated murder in the first degree and 17 counts of attempted murder in the first degree. Wednesday's plea in a Fort Lauderdale court came after Cruz's defense attorney told the judge that the teen was...

A transcript of the meeting with first responders as provided by the White House: I just got back from the hospital. A young woman was shot — four bullets, two in her lungs.

    The brother of the Florida school shooter has been involuntarily committed to a mental health facility, according to a report. Nikolas Cruz’s younger brother, who turns 18 next week, was involuntarily removed from his home on Friday under what is commonly known as the Baker Act, according to the Palm Beach Post. While an adult may be held and examined for up to 72 hours, the limit for minors is 12 hours. Both Nikolas Cruz and his brother were adopted by a loving older couple. But Roger Cruz passed away years ago, while their mother Lynda Cruz died on Nov....

    The FBI received a tip with concerns about suspected Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz but protocols were not followed and it was not investigated. Florida Gov. Rick Scott is calling on FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign after discovering that the FBI failed to investigate a tip that the Florida school shooter could be plotting an attack. Scott on Friday sharply criticized the federal law enforcement agency, saying in a statement that the "FBI's failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable." The FBI acknowledged it failed to act on a tip to its hotline that Nikolas Cruz had...

    The FBI revealed Friday it got a tip last month that Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old accused of killing 17 people on Valentine's Day, had a gun, wanted to “kill people” and there was the “potential of him conducting a school shooting.” The agency in a statement admitted receiving a call on Jan. 5, 2018 from a person close to Cruz who contacted the FBI through its Public Access Line tipline to express concerns about Cruz's erratic behavior and disturbing social media posts "Under established protocols, the information provided by the caller should have been assessed as a potential threat to...

    Jessika Edwards told CNN that she and Devin Kelley worked together at Hollomon Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 to 2012. Kelley was released from the military on a bad-conduct discharge in 2014 after serving time for assaulting his wife and stepson. Edwards said that when the two made contact on Facebook in 2014, Kelley said he had been purchasing dogs through Craigslist and then using them for “target practice.” While in the Air Force, she said, Kelley was preoccupied with mass murders and made jokes about killing people. ..." In 2014, the same year he allegedly made...

    The Irish post office, An Post, is to release a stamp immortalizing Che Guevara 50 years after his death at the hands of the Bolivian Army. Long ago, Irish artist Jim Fitzpartrick created the iconic image of Guevara with his trademark cap, shaggy hair and piercing gaze transposed onto a red background. Now for the first time, it has been placed on a stamp. The word ‘Éire’, the Irish word for ‘Ireland’, declares the stamp’s origins for all who care to Google it, and it costs one euro to buy. […] Earlier this year, the Irish government issued an apology...

    The 22-year-old man suspected of shooting five middle-aged white men since last year — including four on south Kansas City walking trails — threatened in 2014 to shoot up a school and “kill all white people,” according to court records. Fredrick Demond Scott, who was charged Tuesday in two killings and named as a suspect in three more, made those statements in January 2014 at Center Alternative School, as documented in a municipal citation for harassment. Scott, who is black, has been charged with murder in the deaths of Steven Gibbons, 57, and John Palmer, 54. On Tuesday, Jackson County...

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation said Sunday information released by Anchorage Police Department about Santiago's child was incorrect. In a written statement, FBI spokesperson Staci Feger-Pellessie said Santiago's child was not left inside the car when Santiago came to the FBI's Anchorage office. "The child was in constant custody and care of the FBI, inside our facility, until his mother retrieved him," Feger-Pellessie said. ORIGINAL STORY: Two months before Esteban Santiago allegedly went on a deadly shooting rampage in Florida, he surrendered a gun to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Alaska and told investigators he was "having terroristic thoughts,"...

    Fort Lauderdale Airport terrorist Esteban Santiago registered on MySpace under the name “Aashiq Hammad” and recorded Islamic religious music on the site, 3 years before he ever deployed to Iraq as a U.S. soldier, destroying the lying mainstream media’s narrative that he was just a mentally disturbed veteran and that “Islam had nothing to do with it.” Here’s how we know all that: A search of public records database Nexis reveals that Puerto Rican Esteban Santiago has a brother named Bryan Santiago and two e-mails registered to his name:

    Green Party perennial presidential hopeful Jill Stein praised former Cuban strongman Fidel Castro on Saturday, as encomiums by many left-of-center politicians continued to roll in following his death. "Fidel Castro was a symbol of the struggle for justice in the shadow of empire. Presente!" Stein wrote on Twitter Saturday afternoon. The verb form of the word literally means "present." The way Stein used it was something like a military salute ("present arms!") but for Latin American leftist radicals.

    Good riddance. One down... Fidel Castro has finally met his long overdue death. Good riddance. If you think that sounds harsh, you’re probably not among those who were victimized by his barbaric ascent and brutal 50-year dictatorship. You can read my family’s direct, personal, connection to Castro here. Castro and his crew were (and still are) murderers - a gang of cold-blooded killers who promised liberation and delivered death, torture, and servitude. They line their pockets and live like kings while those beneath them toil away their lives for a pittance. Step out of line, and you vanish.
  • Che Guevara’s Motorcycle Diaries: A Hippie Discovers Communism and Becomes a Monster

    The Motorcycle Diaries is not a “coming-of-age” story as it has been described by a number of commentators. When Che Guevara took off on a motorcycle journey across South America he was not a teenager; he was 23-years-old and therefore already “of age.” In my view, this book has nothing to do with coming-of-age issues, rather it is a “hippie discovers communism” kind of story. The Che Guevara that we meet in The Motorcycle Diaries is a hippie who drifts from place to place without any coherent plan. He is alienated from society. He sees the ill effects of materialism...

    Jennifer Latson paid tribute to communist thug Che Guevara on the anniversary of his death in a gushing Friday item on Time magazine's website. Latson marveled how the Argentinian radical "might have considered the United States his worst enemy, but he faced an even greater threat to his revolutionary ambitions: asthma." The writer later touted that "asthma didn't keep him from embracing the rowdiness of youth," and that "it didn't prevent him from following a rugged revolutionary road to Cuba

     The story of Jewel Shuping demonstrates that there simply are no limits to the mental disorder of liberalism. Jewel is the woman suffering from a somewhat new affliction dubbed “body identity integrity disorder” (BIID) who chose to blind herself because “she always felt she was meant to be blind.”The most amazing thing about this story is that after years of “dreaming of being blind” and “blind-simming” she found a sympathetic psychologist to help her fulfill her dream. Seriously - he poured drain cleaner in her eyes in order to blind her. It worked. Why he isn’t in jail? I guess...

    The Obama administration gave the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl extraordinary insider access to the military’s hunt for their son by having them take part in a series of secure video conferences with senior commanders as well as White House and State Department officials. A former government official involved in American hostage issues said he had never heard of giving a family such access and questioned whether sensitive information could have been conveyed to Robert and Jani Bergdahl and somehow leaked out. A family spokesman said he knows of no such breach. Soon after Sgt. Bergdahl went missing in...
