  • Our partisan FBI failed again, costing taxpayers $130 million (and 17 innocent people their lives)

    How does playing partisan politics interfere with enforcing the law? Let’s examine the massacre at Parkland High in 2018. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, once comprised of the best and brightest in law enforcement, has for some time now been more concerned with pushing the Democrat agenda than stopping criminals and terrorists. The list of recent FBI failures is well-known and extensive. Our feeble Feebs failed to stop the first bombing of the World Trade Center, the 9/11 attacks, the Fort Hood slaughter, the Orlando nightclub shooting, the San Bernardino massacre, and the sexual abuse of underage female Olympic gymnasts....

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — The families of most of those killed and wounded in the 2018 Florida high school massacre announced Monday have reached a multi-million dollar settlement with the federal government over the FBI’s failure to stop the gunman even though it had received information he intended to attack. Attorneys for 16 of the 17 killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and some of those wounded said they have reached a monetary settlement with the government over the FBI’s failure to investigate a tip it received about a month before the massacre. The 17th family...

    The Florida school district where a former student massacred 17 people in 2018 agreed on Monday to shell out $25 million to victims’ families. The Broward County school district will pay the sum in a legal settlement with 52 families of people murdered, hurt, or traumatized during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting. The district was accused of negligence for prevailing to prevent the attack by ex-student Nikolas Cruz, who stormed into the school and opened fire in February 2018. “It’s hard to talk about money because your daughter was murdered,” parent Andrew Pollack told The South Florida Sun-Sentinel, which...

    Nikolas Cruz will plead guilty to murdering 17 people in the Parkland school shooting massacre three years ago, his lawyer said Friday. The 23-year-old will change his plea during a scheduled court hearing in Florida next Wednesday. His attorney told Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer during a brief hearing on Friday that Cruz will plead guilty to 17 counts of first-degree murder in the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The plea comes with no conditions, according to his attorney, which means Cruz will be fighting against the death penalty and hoping for life without parole.

    A Florida judge ruled Thursday that a case may proceed against former Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson, a school resource officer who was widely criticized after he failed to confront a shooter during the deadly massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February 2018. Broward Circuit Judge Martin Fein denied a motion to dismiss 11 charges, including counts of felony child neglect, according to Peterson's attorney Mark Eiglarsh.

    Broward School Board Member Lori Alhadeff, the lone “no” vote on the board’s decision to continue a district-wide student mask mandate, said Wednesday she believes the requirement violates state law. “I do feel that the Board’s vote in favor of a mask mandate that neglects to include an opt-out does violate the law,” Alhadeff said in an email response to questions. “Governor DeSantis’ mandate is quite clear and straightforward in its semantics. I made my decision based solely on that language.” The board on Tuesday voted 8-1 to keep its mask mandate for students in place to begin the school...

    Shocking new surveillance video shows the moment accused Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz attacks an officer at the Broward County Jail in 2018 — some nine months after the deadly shooting spree that left 17 dead. Cruz, who is charged with first-degree murder in the Feb. 14, 2018, shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is seen walking in circles in the jail cafeteria, according to footage posted on YouTube by Law & Crime. After several minutes, Cruz is seen speaking to the guard, identified as Sgt. Raymond Beltran, who is sitting in the corner of the cafeteria. The Nov....

He was the only candidate interviewed for the job out of three applicants and will receive a salary of $65,000.

    Broward County Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie and General Counsel Barbara Myrick were arrested Wednesday as part of a statewide grand jury probe into the district. Runcie was arrested on a charge of perjury in an official proceeding, a third-degree felony. Myrick was arrested on a charge of unlawful disclosure of statewide grand jury proceedings, also a third-degree felony. **** The grand jury’s primary focus was to review school safety in the wake of the Parkland school shooting, but it has expanded its scope to include corruption and mismanagement in district operations.

    He must have slept on it. Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg says he’s giving up his role in the pillow company he launched to compete with conservative MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell — and going back to activism. Hogg, 20, announced on Twitter Saturday “resigned and released all shares, any ownership and any control of Good Pillow LLC” effective immediately. “The reasons for my departure rests entirely with me and my own personal commitments and I truly wish (co-founder William LeGate) nothing but the best,” he wrote. “Over the next several months, I will be taking some time to focus on...

    Appearing on Newsmax TV with host Grant Stinchfield, Andrew Pollack, father of Parkland victim Meadow Pollack, blasted Joe Biden’s exploitation of the third anniversary of the Parkland shooting to push draconian gun control regulations that amount to a virtual repeal of the Second Amendment, saying none of Biden’s plans would have prevented the mass shooting tragedy at Meadow’s school and that “Biden’s wishes are a lie.” Andrew Pollack is the author of “Why Meadow Died: The People and Policies That Created the Parkland Shooter and Endanger America’s Students”. Meadow was his daughter, who was killed during a school shooting on...

    Biden urges Congress to pass 'commonsense' gun law reforms on 3rd anniversary of Parkland shooting On the third anniversary of the Parkland school shooting, President Biden called upon Congress to "enact commonsense gun law reforms." In a Sunday statement, Biden recalled the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, which killed 17 people, including 14 students. "For three years now, the Parkland families have spent birthdays and holidays without their loved ones," he said. "They’ve missed out on the experience of sending their children off to college or seeing them on their first job after high school....

    Sorrow reverberated across the country Sunday as Americans, including President Joe Biden, joined a Florida community in remembering the 17 lives lost three years ago in the Parkland school shooting massacre. “In seconds, the lives of dozens of families, and the life of an American community, were changed forever,” Biden said in a statement released Sunday. The president used the occasion to call on Congress to strengthen gun laws, including requiring background checks on all gun sales and banning assault weapons. There was no time to wait, the president said. “We owe it to all those we’ve lost and to...

    The mother of one of the victims of the 2018 shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, said she spoke to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., after Greene drew widespread backlash last week for outlandish comments she made on social media, including one suggesting that the shooting was a "false flag" operation. The woman, Linda Beigel Schulman, whose son, Scott Beigel, was one of 17 people killed in the attack, said Greene told her that she does not believe major school shootings from the past decade were false flag events or that they had been staged. But, Schulman said,...

    Manuel and Patricia Oliver's son Joaquin was one of the 17 victims in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas mass shooting on Valentine's Day in 2018. Since then, the Olivers have started a nonprofit organization named Change The Ref whose mission is to help end gun violence, promote gun reform, and empower young people, our country’s future leaders. The Olivers are baking 1,700 cookies in the shape of a small person that is filled with holes. They say the holes are meant to represent bullet holes, and each cookie stands for one of the 1,700 children killed by gun violence every year....

    My daughter Meadow was murdered in the Parkland school shooting. I haven’t smiled since. I don’t think I’ll ever smile again. But last week, the Broward County School Board demanded my psychiatric records — among those of other Parkland parents — to prove that I’ve suffered. That might shock you. It shouldn’t. It did not surprise me at all. I’ve seen what happens when politically correct “anti-racist” ideology replaces human decency in a public school system. If Joe Biden is elected president, you’ll find out too. After my daughter was murdered, I wanted to know everything that went wrong. And...

    A Broward sheriff’s deputy who was fired for taking cover behind his truck and then driving away from the Parkland school massacre should be reinstated with back-pay, an arbitrator has ruled. With Monday’s ruling, Deputy Josh Stambaugh is now the second fired deputy in recent months to have an arbitrator rule they should get their job back after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony fired Josh Stambaugh on June 25, 2019, following investigations into his response during the 2018 massacre in Parkland. At the time of the termination, Tony had been on the...

    Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was brutally murdered in the Parkland school massacre put this election in the proper perspective as one between Joe Biden who would pot the safety of our kids and our country at risk for the sake of ideology and political correctness and Donald Trump who would protect both with law and order and armed protection. Pollack rightly condemned liberal Democratic policies in general for putting the students at Parkland and elsewhere in danger by pursuing social justice and social engineering policies that protected those who would do us harm and not allow us to protect...

    The death penalty case against Nikolas Cruz in the 2018 massacre at a Florida high school remains in limbo. At a brief hearing Tuesday, no decisions were made on a trial date amid continuing obstacles because of the coronavirus pandemic. Cruz's defense lawyers say they have almost no access to him in jail, nor do defense experts they insist must see him to build a case. "We're in a worldwide pandemic. It's just not safe to be doing that right now," said defense attorney Melisa McNeill in the hearing, held remotely. "All of that, unfortunately, is on hold." Broward County...
