Texas police shot a man after he disarmed a potential church shooter who had been holding more than 100 people hostage in at a congregation in Amarillo.

Churchgoer Tony Garces managed to disarm Jones during a scuffle, but when police arrived, they shot Mr Garces instead.

PARKLAND FIRST RESPONDER: I WAS TOLD TO STAND DOWN, ‘I COULD HAVE SAVED LIVES’

A first responder to the Parkland school shooting claims he was told to stand down and not enter the building to recover victims, which he believes would have saved lives.

Speaking to a WSVN Miami News 7 reporter, an emergency medical responder who was one of the first at the scene, said law enforcement did not follow mass casualty event protocols.

Reporter Brian Entin published comments from the responder – who did not want to be identified for fear of reprisal – on Twitter Saturday.

The crisis actors of Florida Parkland School shooting

We are told only the official narrative, so we don’t really know what actually happened. But it is noteworthy that the Parkland school shooting carries the usual signatures of previous false-flag or contrived incidents:

An active shooter drill just before or co-terminous with the actual shooting.
Eye-witness reports of more than one shooter.
Pre-dated news reports (on February 12 and 13) of the February 14 shooting.
A decision to tear down the school, all the better to erase any and all evidence that might point to the shooting being a false-flag incident.

OK. THIS MAKES NO SENSE NOW ABOUT THE PARKLAND SHOOTING

Has anyone heard this before? This teacher says that the shooter was wearing a helmet and face mask, and she thought it was a policeman, i.e. she couldn’t see who the shooter was. Couple this with the girl who said she spoke to Nicholas Cruz when the shooting happened (and Cruz was apparently NOT wearing full SWAT gear). Did any witnesses actually say that they saw Cruz shooting that day? I can’t remember any…

Parkland School Shooting: Top 10 Reasons for Deeper Interrogation

Over the past several years certain certain US mass shootings receive round-the-clock coverage yet often possess curious features which are ignored and merely accepted “as reported” by less-than-trustworthy corporate media. Bizarre circumstance and the sometimes inexplicable actions of officials, victims, eyewitnesses and would-be culprits give rise to concern that government agencies and news media act in certain ways to embellish some incidents while short-circuiting the dissemination of vital information.

Billboard Pops Up On Busy California Highway Overnight, 4 Words Make Maxine Waters PANIC

Overnight, a billboard popped up alongside a busy highway in California, where Hispanic GOP candidate Omar Navarro is challenging Maxine Waters for her seat in the U.S. Congress. Waters began to panic when she saw the large sign because four words exposed her dirty secret to many of the same constituents who have been voting for her for years.

On Thursday, Omar Navarro shared a photo on Facebook which had his supporters cheering and his opponents — most of whom are longtime fans of Rep. Maxine Waters — in a state of panic. Navarro, who is just 29-years-old, is challenging Waters for her seat in the U.S. Congress.

Navarro’s photo depicted a billboard which has been erected along a busy California highway. Maxine Waters’ ugly mug is plastered across the left side of the massive sign, and on the right side, the message to voters is loud and clear: Rotten To The Core.

FL Gov. Rick Scott Calls for FBI Director to Resign- While Ignoring Broward Sheriff's Fatal Mistakes

The very next day the FBI admitted they had failed to act on a vital lead that explicitly detailed the mass murderer's intentions to kill people at his school. Immediately, Florida Gov. Rick Scott called for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign in the wake of the Parkland school shooting.

While the FBI apologized and issued a standard vague statement, Gov. Scott said Wray must resign, saying acknowledging a mistake “isn’t going to cut it..” "An apology will never bring these 17 Floridians back to life or comfort the families who are in pain. The families will spend a lifetime wondering how this could happen, and an apology will never give them the answers they desperately need,” Scott said in a statement.

Days later, many of the facts have emerged and it's time to explain to these families why their loved ones are dead or wounded. It's time to tell how the shooting actually did happen and why it was allowed to occur.

NATIONAL SECURITYPOLITICSRepublicans Refute ‘Point by Point’ Democratic Memo on Dossier

On Saturday the much anticipated Democratic memo written by ranking minority member of the committee Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, was released and surmised that former British spy “Christopher Steele’s raw intelligence reporting did not inform the FBI’s decision to initiate its counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016” among other assertions. The dossier played a significant role in the investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaign and alleged that members of the Trump campaign were colluding with the Russian government against then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“The American people now clearly understand that the FBI used political dirt paid for by the Democratic Party to spy on an American citizen from the Republican Party”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Democratic Party has thrown itself into a chasm of mistrust on the part of the American people over this nonsense, and may well never recover.

And to add insult to injury, here's another story, from what whatdoesitmean.com, about the DNC's attitude toward throwing Bernie Sanders under the proverbial bus regarding their having rigged the primary elections in Clinton's favor:

Lawyers For The DNC Argue That 'Primary Rigging' Is Protected By The First Amendment

Talk about desperation on the cusp of madness! Because of the way in which the DNC rigged the primaries to keep Bernie from ever having a chance at winning the nomination, American Democrats and Independents had utterly zero choice in the last election; they simply had Hillary crammed down their collective throats, whether they wanted her or not.

Broward County Sheriff Insists He Was An "Amazing" Leader Despite Failing To Stop Florida Shooter

After being confronted by CNN's Jake Tapper about his department's refusal to act after receiving a tip about Nikolas Cruz being a potential "school shooter in the making," Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel insisted that he provided "amazing leadership" to the department after blaming the lapse on an underling.

Israel, who has been a frequent presence on cable news - including during CNN's gun-control town hall last week - since 19-year-old Cruz shot and killed 16 of his teenage classmates and a gym teacher during a Valentine's Day rampage, refused to take responsibility for failing to stop Cruz - eliciting an incredulous response from Tapper.

Four Broward County Sheriff's deputies failed to enter Florida high school during shooting: Report

On Friday, it was reported that Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, who served as the armed school resource officer, did not enter the school as the shooting occurred.

But Peterson wasn’t the only one — three other Broward County Sheriff’s deputies also remained outside the school with their pistols drawn as they took cover behind their vehicles, CNN reports.

Additionally, the Coral Springs police officers who arrived at the school later were frustrated and surprised that the sheriff’s deputies did not accompany them as they entered the school, sources told CNN.

California Water Agency Officials Charged With Burying Hazardous Waste And Corruption

California's attorney general has charged five former and current employees of the Panoche Water District in central California with felonies, including using public funds for personal items and illegally burying barrels of hazardous waste.

The Department of Toxic Substances Control at California's Environmental Protection Agency says it found 86 drums, each holding between 35 and 55 gallons of "chlorine, caustic soda, iron chloride and a mixture of used antifreeze, used solvents, and used oil."

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra accused former Panoche Water District General Manager Dennis Falaschi and former employees Jack Hurley and Dubby West of disposing of the chemicals at an unauthorized site, specifically burying them "in a pit or in the soil at the Panoche Water District yard" near Firebaugh, Calif.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How in the name of heaven was this allowed to go on for so long, without anyone in the State of California being aware?!?!?

Assault Weapons Not Protected by Second Amendment, Federal Appeals Court Rules

Maryland's ban on 45 kinds of assault weapons and its 10-round limit on gun magazines were upheld Tuesday by a federal appeals court in a decision that met with a strongly worded dissent.

Judge William Traxler issued a dissent. By concluding the Second Amendment doesn't even apply, Traxler wrote, the majority "has gone to greater lengths than any other court to eviscerate the constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms." He also wrote that the court did not apply a strict enough review on the constitutionality of the law.

"For a law-abiding citizen who, for whatever reason, chooses to protect his home with a semi-automatic rifle instead of a semi-automatic handgun, Maryland's law clearly imposes a significant burden on the exercise of the right to arm oneself at home, and it should at least be subject to strict scrutiny review before it is allowed to stand," Traxler wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that this case goes all the way up to the Supreme Court, and gets heard at that level.

FROM DRUG TOLERANCE TO ‘NARCO STATE’: MIGRANT GANGS & HANDS-OFF POLICING THREATEN DUTCH LIBERALISM

The Netherlands’ permissive drugs policy has been hailed worldwide, but immigrant-dominated crime gangs are taking advantage to create a “parallel mafia society.” Yet they are not the only ones who created this crisis.
A report by the Dutch police union based on interviews with 400 detectives, released last week, read less like a blueprint for tackling crime, but rather a concession of defeat.

A sample of quotes from interviewees: “In 25 years, I’ve seen small dealers grow to large businessmen with respected investors [and] political connections.” “Five years ago a contract killer would cost €50,000 [US$61,000] now one can be found for €5,000. It’s supply and demand.” “The Netherlands has become a narco state in the past three decades. We do not see what remains invisible, but underground it has been growing.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a shame, happening in what used to be one of the gems of Europe.

The Dutch people have to take the initiative, and move beyond the status quo right now in order to get these problems under control.

OH MY. Read The FBI Phone-Call Transcript Re: Parkland Shooter Nikolas Cruz: “I Just Think About Getting Into A School And Just Shooting The Place Up…”

How was this troubled young man NOT detained? And how is it the same agencies that failed so horribly to do their job are now, along with so many in the Establishment Media, declaring it is law-abiding citizens who must disarm?

What follows is the FBI transcript of a phone call from a woman warning the FBI that Nikolas Cruz was going to explode. She details his fascination with ISIS, his prior explosive conflicts when a student, the ongoing threats he was making to others, and her fear he will return to a school and “just start shooting the place up.”

If you read this in light of what has so recently and tragically taken place and not be outraged against those whose job it was to prevent such tragedy, you aren’t paying attention. And then ask why the media has been so slow to ask the same questions of these agencies because, given the following information, it is that horrible negligence that deserves so much of the blame.

SAME OLD: NOTORIOUS WHITE HELMETS REPORT A CHEMICAL ATTACK, BLAME DAMASCUS AGAIN

An infamous NGO that was repeatedly accused of falsifying information about its operations and essentially working as a propaganda outlet for anti-government militants in Syria, now claims that Damascus deployed chemical weapons in Eastern Ghouta.

The notorious White Helmets group claims that the Syrian government deployed chlorine gas against the town of Al-Shifoniya town in Eastern Ghouta, killing one child and causing “widespread suffocation” among the local civilians, Anadolu Agency reports.

The White Helmets, a group that styles itself as an NGO seeking to ease the plight of civilians in Syria suffering from the ongoing conflict in the country, has previously been accused of falsifying information about its work in Syria and staging “rescue” attempts in its propaganda videos.

Earlier the Russian Defense Ministry warned that militant groups in Eastern Ghouta were preparing a false flag attack in an attempt to blame Damascus for using chemical weapons against civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The logical question which comes to mind is, why would Al Assad's forces do this, when they are nearly at the point of wiping out the jihadists with Russia's help?!?

The short answer is, they wouldn't; the White Helmets cannot be given a shred of credibility at this point, and it is more likely something which they themselves, or their associates, have been doing.

COPS ARE TAKING PEOPLE’S FIREARMS, SELLING THEM TO MAKE A PROFIT AND IT’S 100% LEGAL

As calls for gun control increase among the parties that claim it would put an end to mass shootings, an investigation is revealing that state sheriff’s deputies are taking the firearms they have seized from individuals and re-selling them to generate revenue—only to find that some of the guns go on to be used in other crimes.

According to the results of an investigation reported by the Associated Press, in the state of Washington alone, “more than a dozen of the guns sold by law enforcement since 2010 ended up in new crimes.”

The firearms are also typically sold to arms dealers in large batches, with a recent lot of 331 guns being transferred from the Washington State Patrol to a gun dealer in Knoxville, Tennessee. Included in that batch were at least five assault rifles.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

CNN’s Jake Tapper Takes on Sheriff Israel Over Botched Shooting Response

The Broward County Sheriff’s Department is doing damage control – and it ain’t going well.

In response to the news that their department had been called to the household of the Stoneman Douglas high school shooter Nickolas Cruz 39 times, they clarified that it was actually “only” 23 such incidents, and asked the media to “STOP REPORTING 39. IT’S SIMPLY NOT TRUE.” (Their emphasis, not mine).

Whether or not it was 23 or 39 is irrelevant – what’s relevant is that they were useless 100% of the time.

Though I suppose it’s also relevant that the Broward County Sheriff’s Department lied through their teeth, because you can read their public statement (left), compared to the log of police calls from the Cruz household (right), in the tweet below.

Mr. Flannery says he wants to simplify the company and is considering bigger moves including separating the core divisions—health care, aviation and power—into what would amount to a breakup of the industrial giant.

Jefferson's 'tree of liberty' and the blood of schoolchildren

Like all Americans, I have a Second Amendment right to own a firearm. I may not choose to exercise it, but the Supreme Court, in the 2008 case of District of Columbia v. Heller, is pretty clear on the subject. I don’t even need to be part of a militia, which is good, because I wouldn’t know how to join one. So I accept gun ownership, in principle, as part of my birthright, and acknowledge that the same rights accrue to people who might, for one reason or another, hate me.
