  • Hero Aaron Feis, the Disarmed School Guard

    American Thinker ^ | 2/19/2018 | Patrick Jakeway
    Aaron Feis was the right man in the right place at the right time, but he was legally prevented from using the right, constitutionally protected tool to do the job. Mr. Feis was shot on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, shielding students from a killer with his own body. Ultimately, he and 16 other people, mainly students, died. Mr. Feis was truly a remarkable and courageous man. Most media reports have focused on his after-school job as a Stoneman Douglas High football coach (here, here, here, here, and here) - but, on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Feis was...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Pretty much everyone knows who Jeff Foxworthy is. Well, anyone over the age of 25 does, anyway. For those who are unaware, Foxworthy is the southern comedian who is most famous for his “You might be a redneck” routine. Some of his funniest quotes include things like: - If you’ve ever had to climb a water tower with a can of paint to protect your sister’s honor, you might be a redneck; - If your wife has ever had to tell you “honey, come get this transmission out of the tub...

    Something needs to change,' says Milwaukee native who turned in rifle to authorities A Milwaukee native said enough is enough and turned his semi-automatic rifle into the Broward County Sheriff's Office. Ben Dickmann grew up in Milwaukee, but moved to south Florida years ago. He shared a Facebook post of a sheriff's deputy taking possession of his AR-FiveSeven, which is similar to the AR-15 that was used in the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Dickmann said only law enforcement should have guns that powerful. "Something needs to change, and it needs to change now," Dickmann said. "People have been...
  • Rob Reiner: Trump a ‘Mentally Ill Sociopath,’ Time to ‘End This Sickness’

    <p>Rob Reiner escalated his attacks on President Donald Trump on Sunday, taking to social media to demand that GOP “patriots” take a stand to “end” what he called the “sickness” of his presidency. The 70-year-old LBJ filmmaker — a frequent critic of the president who previously launched a committee to explore possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race — blasted Trump in a Twitter post in apparent response to a school shooting in Florida this week that left 17 people dead and 15 others injured.</p>

    So a quick review of the so-called broadcast news stations (tv and radio) shows LOTS of praise for four or five Parkland students who are being manipulated by leftists kooks to go on tv and spew hatred at President Trump. Not a SINGLE BIT of curiosity from the media on how these children SUDDENLY have access to equipment for mass rallies, NETWORK tv talking.points, etc. Just amazing how in three days these kids become the latest face of Trump hatred. Oh, still not a single interview with a gun rights advocacy group. One kid on CNN says he will refuse...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin offered comments about Wednesday’s mass murder at a Florida high school when she spoke with Breitbart News’s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight on Friday. “It’s not a Second Amendment gun issue at all,” Palin said, adding, “What needs to be discussed is the failure of the FBI.” Incompetence at the FBI — not agitation against the Second Amendment — should be a national focus related to the mass shooting in Florida, said Palin. Adding to that assertion, Palin stated, “What needs to be discussed is the failure of the FBI. This...

    Today on NBC's Meet the Press, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) chatted with host Chuck Todd about the proper solutions to end mass shootings such as the one that occurred last week in Parkland, Florida that left 17 innocent Americans killed. Sen. Lankford argued for more extensive background checks, but maintained that the right to own guns is still a constitutional right that must be respected and recognized. Sen. Lankford also emphasized that the ultimate problem is not the type of gun used, but the intent of the person wielding the gun that makes the difference.  The host asked Sen. Lankford what,...

    In the wake of the shooting that killed 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Florida, stars far and wide are speaking out in the ongoing gun control debate. Now, “The Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik has made an impassioned plea for “civil disobedience.” The star took to Facebook with a video post calling out lawmakers who receive funding from the National Rifle Association and private citizens who own guns. “The images of those 17 faces will not leave my head, but I said that about the last shooting and the last faces and indeed, we forget,” she...

    Today, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was interviewed by Fox News' Chris Wallace regarding the horrific massacre that occurred last week at the hands of gunman Nikolas Cruz. That shooting which occurred at a High School in Parkland, FL left 17 dead and many more injured.  In the wake of the tragedy, thousands have called for more gun control and and mental health measures to prevent the next shooting. But, Limbaugh argued that none of the proposed ideas will actually stop the next shooting and America must protect its students by arming our teachers in preparation for the next tragedy. "What...

    On Thursday, Minneapolis station WCCO reported on guns and crime in Minnesota. Anchor Frank Vascarello's introduction: "More people are carrying guns than ever before, but the crime rate remains low." Imagine that. Reporter Pat Kessler also treated more guns and less crime as paradoxical. Reporting on crime and guns has been infested with the "Fox Butterfield effect." It is named after a New York Times reporter, who in November 2004 was surprised that: The number of inmates in state and federal prisons rose 2.1 percent last year, even as violent crime and property crime fell. Later, a puzzled Butterfield referred to "the paradox...

    West Texas school district allows concealed carry on campus CLAUDE, TX (KFDA) - Claude Independent School District has several staff members that carry concealed weapons on school grounds. A sign in front of Claude ISD campuses shows that the district has multiple staff members who carry concealed weapons. Parents who have children at the school say they feel very safe and comfortable knowing their staff are armed and ready to protect them if they have to. "It makes me feel really, really safe that we have staff on hand if anything happened," said mother of a Claude ISD student...

    Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich said the deadly school shooting on Wednesday should be a rallying moment for the nation on guns, but he predicted Congress would not live up to the task, and suggested the President should take the lead. "Do I think they can do anything on guns? I hope they prove me wrong and they can because I have no confidence in them," Kasich said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "We need leadership out of the executive," he said. "This is a great opportunity for common sense steps that can be taken. ... Mr. President,...

    On Saturday’s “MSNBC Live,” Rep. Francis Rooney (R-FL) stated that “some freedoms are going to have to be given up” to ensure unstable people don’t get weapons and that he will agree to act on gun control, but “not necessarily for normal people.” He also expressed uncertainty as to whether people should be allowed to own AR-15s and argued for making schools harder targets. Rooney said, “Well, we are one of the most open societies in the world. I think that each one of these heinous crimes raises the bar and makes us — compels that we, as a nation,...

    Tragically, no one's children will be safe at school as long as things stay that way The particulars about protecting innocents from mass murder at schools, concerts, marathons etc. are not part of FBI training. The horrific Valentine’s Day massacre that took the lives of 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, leaving 14 more injured, proves it.

    It’s always amusing to see which traditional liberals have been pushed too far by leftists. Not that this is the first time Alan Dershowitz has strayed (see Alan Dershowitz Throws Down on Idiots Who Blame Terrorism on Poverty… and WATCH: Alan Dershowitz Face-Stomps Obama Over Anti-Israel Resolution). It is, however, the most blunt he’s been about it. I’m not worried about a few dozen people with swastikas who want to replace the Jews, because they’re our past. They have no resonance on university campuses today. But the hard, hard left? Anti-Semitism, anti-Christianity, intolerance for speech. It’s the future. These are...

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) announced Thursday he is willing to sit down and discuss gun control legislation with Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and John Cornyn (R-TX). This is the second time in four months he has agreed to talk to about gun control proposals. On November 8, 2017, Breitbart News reported that he had agreed “to allow a Judiciary Committee hearing on bump stock gun control.” Ironically, two of the key proponents of those hearings were Feinstein and Cornyn. Additionally, Feinstein had put forth a bill to ban bump stocks altogether. Fast forward to February 2018 and CBS News reports...

But it is the people from the old-fashioned countries that tend to have the education......
