    Bob Parks: Black & Right ^ | 3/6/11 | Bob Parks
    We don’t live in a communist country where jobs are assigned according to intellect or bulk. Police and firefighters weren’t drafted. If you chose to be one, I applaud you but that being said, that doesn’t mean you get to tell us how much you get paid because you chose a job that potentially puts your life in peril. If it’s not worth the risk, I wouldn’t blame you at all if you walked, but this job safety-guilt trip sh-- is starting to fall on deaf ears.

    With all this new in-fighting over former RNC chair Michael Steele and comments made about him by a CPAC official, let's not forget that some of us never thought he should have gotten the job he was clearly unqualified for and did tremendous damage to the brand.

    On his CNN show this morning, Jake Tapper raked Broward Sheriff Scott Israel over the coals for his department’s mishandling of the Parkland school shooting. Israel bobbed and weaved, but at one point his ego revealed itself. After claiming that as sheriff he has provided “amazing leadership,” Israel vaingloriously boasted that if he had been at the school: “I would have been the first in.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Is fame giving delusions of grandeur to David Hogg, the Parkland student who’s become a media celebrity as an advocate of more gun control? During a long interview with Joy Reid on her MSNBC show today, Hogg at one point looked directly into the camera and said that in contrast with several other companies that had offered discounts to NRA members: “FedEx still has not dropped their deal with the NRA. The CEO is one of the biggest donors to the NRA. And we have to take care of them. And as a result, if they aren’t going to, we’re...

    Student David Hogg filmed this video while his Florida high school was on lockdown because of an active shooter on campus Feb. 14. "Thousands of people have died from gun violence and it's time to take a stand," Hogg said, citing the need for stronger gun control laws. Seventeen people were killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

    TALLAHASSEE -- David Hogg, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, isn’t bothered that his appearances speaking for classmates during the past week have drawn naysayers. Hogg and other students have called for better background checks on gun purchases and laws to keep guns out of the hands of people with mental illnesses, after 17 students and faculty members died last week in a mass shooting at the Broward County high school.

I advise every American to do the same, using the first link above to download it. My own personal take-aways are as follows:

    YouTube ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Joe Scarborough said he wasn't justifying the failure of the Parkland deputy to enter the school during the shooting. But that's exactly what Scarborough did. On Morning Joe, Scarborough said: "There actually was a 'good guy with a gun,' as the President and every NRA member will say. There was a good guy with a gun at a school. There was a law enforcement officer with a gun at the school. And he didn't go in. In part, I am sure, because he was overmatched. Now, that's no justification."

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. In a year and a few months, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will have spent more time at the helm of the Israeli government than any other man. The other man is David Ben-Gurion, the Socialist leader who repressed Zionist nationalist movements in Israel by fiat, by law and, as in the Altalena, by murder. That factoid may not matter much to most people, even most Israelis, but it matters a great deal to the remnants of...

    As you know, CNN has a tendency to fake the news. It held a debate in which the Clinton campaign was fed questions ahead of time. Here's a list of their fake news for 2017 alone. Yesterday CNN held a "town hall" in which it propped up Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch to be used as leftist cannon fodder. Wednesday's CNN town hall to promote gun control and gun grabbing was off the rails from the start. So-called moderator Jake Tapper sat back as the wild crowd targeted Republican Senator Marco Rubio (Fla.) with boos and jeers for basically just being there....
  • Classical Music’s White Male Supremacy is Overt, Pervasive, and a Problem

    Recognizing that Classical Music has implied White Supremacy for centuries is hard for those that study the art form. In fact, that correlating The Met’s continued programming of dead white men to the rise of White Supremacist tendencies in America is not a far stretch is starting to become apparent to those that follow and review the company’s season announcements. Of course Italian Opera traditions are rich and are the backbone for many composers, but when an American institution, founded on the grounds

    More than two dozen Senate Republicans are urging President Trump to re-engage in Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations. The 25 GOP lawmakers sent a letter to Trump on Friday saying they support his recent comments that he may consider U.S. participation if the 11-nation Asia-Pacific pact is improved.

    There's a redacted version of it in the public domain right now, but Ryan Bundy would like to see full disclosure of a memo written by a Bureau of Land Management agent about the corrupt nature of the federal investigation of the Bundys and their supporters in connection with the Bunkerville Standoff. His motion to unseal Larry Wooten's letter was filed in US District Court in Las Vegas today (Tuesday February 20th). Charged have been dismissed against him in connection with the Bunkerville Standoff, but prosecutors want to reverse US District Judge Gloria M. Navarro's dismissal "with prejudice" of the...

    I checked into YouTube this morning to update on the news.  My favorite reporter, Charles Walton, had been terminated!  I am in shock.  He has been reporting on the Florida school shooting and the Las Vegas Massacre – I guess he found out too much. I then went to my second best source, Dustin Nemos, and discovered what is coming down the Tube.  Dustin is being censored, also, but his channel is still up.  The following video is from Dustin Nemos , and I hope you can watch it. If the video has been removed here are links to inform...

    Being a shooting victim doesn’t make you an expert on ending gun violence. But you wouldn’t know that from watching CNN. It’s been a week since a monster killed 17 people at a Florida high school. The calls for gun control have been reflexive and ambiguous, but the media have found a new mouthpiece — shooting survivors. “Students seize control of gun debate” blared a MSNBC caption. An organization portraying itself as being made up of students announced a March 24 rally in D.C. and other cities called “March For Our Lives.” Some students say they won’t return to class...
