The FBI looks like the Federal Bureau of Incompetence after ignoring warning about Florida gunman

Wasn’t there something eerily and disgracefully familiar about the news that the FBI had a highly specific warning about the murderous intentions of Nikolas Cruz, the gunman who has confessed to shooting and killing 14 students and three adults at a Florida high school Wednesday?

Doesn’t it remind you of the way that after nearly every single one of the Islamist terror attacks of the last few years – whether in America, in Britain or elsewhere – a devastating phrase soon emerges? The attacker was “known to the authorities.”

Just take the case of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombers. We learned soon afterwards that the Russian authorities handed the FBI a file on one of them, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, in 2011 detailing his links to radical Islam.

Judge Jeanine: ‘The FBI Needs a Complete Overhaul, a Complete Cleansing’

Fox News Channel “Justice” host Jeanine Pirro took aim at the FBI in response to their failure to act on two different tips they received regarding Parkland, FL, shooter Nikolas Cruz.

“The FBI needs a complete overhaul, a complete cleansing,” Pirro began her Saturday opening statement.

She continued, “In any company or organization that runs afoul of its mission or is tainted by corruption and politics, the CEO and the board of directors would go. Likewise, the utter failure of the FBI in September and January regarding shooter Nikolas Cruz is so monumental that the same rule must apply. The killing of young innocence. teachers and coaches, gunned down in a school — a place that should be a haven in a heartless world, lays at the hands of the FBI.”

FROM PROZAC TO PARKLAND: ARE PSYCHIATRIC DRUGS CAUSING MASS SHOOTINGS?

Whille mass killers generally have guns in their hands, another commonality is that they often have psychiatric drugs in their blood. The difference, though, is that it isn't guns that have the side effect of "homicidal ideation."

If you develop digestive problems after a change in diet, do you look for the cause in foods you always ate or the new ones you started eating? While the answer is obvious, this common sense is painfully uncommon when analyzing the new phenomenon of continual mass shootings: Many blame the long-present “foods” — guns in this case — and ignore the new diet whose embrace coincided with the problem. And part of what’s new is the widespread use of psychiatric drugs.

Behold! 1991 Book Warned Us 'Secret Government' Would Use School Shootings To Disarm Americans! Was Florida School Shooter 'MK-Ultra-Cated'?

All the way back in 1991, former US Navy Intelligence Briefing Team member Milton William Cooper wrote a book titled "Behold A Pale Horse" within which he reveals a wealth of great information long hidden from the public eye, some dating all the way back to the 1940's. Elaborating upon the assassination of John F. Kennedy, UFO's and 'the secret government', on page 225 of his book, Cooper dropped the following bombshell paragraph that should be looked at much more deeply in light of what recently happened in Florida.:

Is John Brennan the Mastermind Behind Russiagate?

What role did Obama play? What about the Intelligence Community Assessment? Was it based on the contents of the Steele report? Will the “hand-picked” analysts who worked on the report vouch for its conclusions in or were they coached about what to write? How did Brennan persuade the reluctant Comey into opening a counterintelligence investigation on members in the Trump campaign when he knew it would be perceived as a partisan attempt to sabotage the elections by giving Hillary an edge?

Soon the investigative crosshairs will settle on Brennan. He’d better have the right answers.

TAMARAC, Fla. - Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel didn't make it to a political forum for local candidates at a condominium for senior citizens Wednesday afternoon, but he seemed well-represented by his underlings nonetheless.

Working the door and passing out Broward Sheriff's Office pamphlets, some of which featured prominent photos of the sheriff, was Patti Lynn, a BSO employee in full uniform. There was also Capt.

Broward homicide detective blows whistle on Sheriff Israel; alleges cover up and retaliation

Jeffrey Kogan, a featured detective on the A&E channel’s police reality show “The First 48,” contends he was ostracized and demoted to road patrol after reporting he saw the dog handler unnecessarily sic the animal on a murder suspect who was in custody and no longer a threat.

Sheriff Israel, a former Fort Lauderdale police officer, is the lone defendant in the nine-page complaint filed July 12 in Broward Circuit Court. He is accused of engaging in or allowing “unlawful retribution and retaliation,” including “verbal abuse, harassment and intimidation for reporting official misconduct and participating in its investigation.”

'Why would anyone bother to dope in curling?' Athletes admit they're baffled as to why anyone would use drugs to cheat in their sport after Russian is accused at Winter Olympics

Farts away! Plane makes unscheduled stop after man won't stop guffing

An elderly man's flatulence forced his flight to make an emergency stop after a fight broke out over his barrage of bottom burps.

Passengers flying with budget Dutch airline Transavia from Dubai to Amsterdam were reportedly put out by the man's continued farting, and asked him to stop.

But the man failed to hold it in, and when even a direct order from the pilot didn't take the wind out of his sails, two particularly incensed passengers took matters into their own hands.

Local media reported that two Dutchmen sat next to the trumper started a fight with the man, which escalated to the point where the pilot was forced to make an unscheduled stop.

Problems with the Chabad group must be made public

For many years, the leading Rabbis have made several statements against the Chabad organization referring to it, among other things, as a "criminal organization" and a "religious cult". Chabad is known to be a "mafia" a "gang" and a "group of very bad people".

The above statements are not political in nature. There are basic problems with the Chabad organization that derive from the day this group was founded about 200 years ago. Chabad Rabbis are not considered real Rabbis by any Orthodox Rabbis anywhere in the world. Chabad Rabbis cannot perform conversions, supervise Kosher food production, arrange a GET ceremony, or do shechita of Kosher animals.

From the point of view of Jewish Orthodoxy, Chabad is compared to the Reform and the Conservative movements. The difference is that Chabad claims to be part of Orthodox Judaism, when it's really not.

The Jewish sheriff at Florida shooting cites Talmudic verse as his motivation

A Democrat, he was elected sheriff in 2012 and reelected four years later. The county is home to a large Jewish population. In the 2016 campaign flier, he mentioned fighting gun violence as one of his top issues.

In truth, this has become something like a fact of life in America today, one that's only been made more extreme by the media's full-time fascination with President Donald Trump ... We continue to face a grim reality of this twenty-first-century moment, one that long preceded the presidency of Donald Trump: the lack of connection between the American public (myself once included) and the wars being fought in our names in distant lands.

All of our nice, acceptable "liberal democratic" neighbors and allies have trampled on "the principle of free speech" so often and so blatantly that by now they've eviscerated it in the name of anti-fascism, sensitivity to designated minorities, or "overcoming the past." Why has our State Department never exhibited the slightest "concern" about these earlier, even more glaring encroachments on free speech and free inquiry?

“Israel will not allow Iran’s regime to put a noose of terror around our neck,” he added. “We will act without hesitation to defend ourselves. And we will act if necessary not just against Iran’s proxies that are attacking us, but against Iran itself.”
