Premature Observations on the
Parkland School Shootings

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 2/15/2018 8:44:55 PM

As Steve said this morning, it is pretty much pointless to comment on mass shooting events before the facts are known. But that hasn’t stopped liberals from going into full hysteria mode, as they always do. And perhaps the dust has settled enough to allow some preliminary observations. Here are mine: 1. The facts, to the extent they have been reported, are very weird. The murderer, Nikolas Cruz, packed up a semiautomatic rifle, a gas mask and plenty of ammunition and took an Uber to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Apparently the Uber driver saw nothing amiss. Cruz shot some people

Hinderaker makes several good points, among them ...

FTA: 4. As seems to be the case in all mass shooting incidents, Nikolas Cruz was nutty as a fruitcake. Fellow students immediately assumed that he was the “shooter.” The fundamental problem here relates to mental health. Having emptied its insane asylums in a misguided attempt at “liberation,” the U.S. is virtually without a mental health system.

As serial killer Scorpio mewled to Inspector Harry Callahan (Eastwood), "I have rights." Then again, as Marion Cobretti (Stallone) said to the gasoline soaked enemy sniper just as he dropped a lit match on him, "You have the right to remain silent."

This killer, Nikolas Cruz, the proverbial red-headed (and orphaned) stepchild, presciently having been regarded by schoolmates with a measure of alarm, telegraphed his intentions directly, enough so that his threat to shoot up a school was reported to the FBI. The federal agency had his name and couldn´t even find him! I guess they were too busy trying to frame the hated Trump or some other major Republican. But I digress.

...Then the mass murders happened. People who go on social media and threaten to do harm to others should be taken seriously. At least some of these horrible slaughters--this one in particular--could and perhaps should have been prevented by alert authorities, guided by an alert public. The signs were there and they were clear. Those who could have done something, didn´t.

There are a couple common factors with all these mass murders. It doesn´t matter if it is a regular psycho, a Moslem, or a political hack, the one common thread is that the communists like Feinstein and a few others will start screaming for gun control. And so it has happened.
Remington needed the boost anyway. I guess some of that inventory will start moving again.

March for Our Minds – Stop
Indoctrinating Kids
Frontpage Mag, by Daniel Greenfield    Original Article

March for Our Lives and the school walkout isn’t about gun violence; it’s about indoctrination. And there’s no age limit. Sixteen years ago, David Horowitz and the Freedom Center unveiled the Academic Bill of Rights to protect intellectual diversity on college campuses. But now the same indoctrination and intolerance urgently demand that the Freedom Center step in to protect K-12 students from political abuse. The ugly scenes from the student walkout haunt our screens as the classroom organizers of the left work to turn students into the latest anti-American protest movement after Black Lives Matter and Antifa. In Minneapolis, a student carrying a Trump

Another voice: A longshot bid

Since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, the most extraordinary things keep happening. A surge of protests forces Florida’s first small steps on gun control in 22 years. Students by the thousands stage walkouts at high schools nationwide to keep gun safety in the public mind. Momentum gathers for a huge demonstration Saturday in Washington to force action from Congress. And now arises the chance — with long odds, but a chance nonetheless — of getting a proposed amendment onto November’s ballot that would allow Floridians to place a ban on assault-style rifles in the state Constitution.

Florida Democrats had some harsh words Monday for two Republicans running for governor. In a fiery conference call, U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, and state Rep. Jared Moskowitz, D-Coral Springs, called out Republicans Ron DeSantis and Adam Putnam for their stances on gun reform. "It´s pretty clear to anyone who spends five minutes looking at both the records of my colleague Congressman DeSantis and Adam Putnam that they´ve chosen their ´A´ rating from the NRA over their concern about public safety, the lives of kids, the city of Parkland and the state of Florida," Deutch said. "And that makes them both

MIAMI — They had just finished up lunch, and set off to run a humdrum errand: a drive to the travel agency to pick up airline tickets for their annual visit to their beloved homeland Cuba. Osvaldo Gonzalez and Alberto Arias, friends and business partners, happened to pass under a Miami bridge that Thursday afternoon, the road bustling with fellow drivers also out on the most ordinary and unthreatening of life’s errands. A teenager was driving her friend to the doctor’s office to pick up some medicine. A father of three was heading home from work. A woman on her way to

There are two ways to find one´s bearings in maze of allegations over Russian collusion in the West. The first is to evaluate each piece of breaking news with respect to the tangled skeins of conspiracy that both sides and hundreds of pundits tirelessly launch. The second approach is to understand Russia´s objectives from first principles and from them evaluate each piece of information in relation to the Kremlin´s interests. Unless there´s some easy way to find Waldo it´s easy to become a victim of disinformation. The quickest way to identify the character is to become familiar with his signature. The

Discipline Quotas: The Obama

In 2014, the Obama administration promulgated a “guidance” to America’s public schools that threatened federal investigations and litigation against schools where black students are disciplined (e.g., by suspension) more often, on a pro rata basis, than white students, on the ground that such numerical discrepancy is evidence of discrimination. Many schools responded by adopting discipline quotas, which meant in practice that after a certain number of students of a particular race had been suspended, teachers and administrators were helpless to enforce any kind of discipline in classrooms. The Obama administration is gone, thankfully, but its “guidance” has not been revoked. Meanwhile,

Former CIA Director John Brennan appears to be rabid. In the tweet below regarding President Trump’s disparagement of Andrew McCabe, he is all but foaming at the mouth. Brit Hume :advises: “Be grateful Brennan didn’t say this to your face. You’d still be wiping the spittle off.” We’re thinking roughly along the same lines. Sharyl Attkisson separately asks: “A guy like this would never misuse intel or his authority—would he?” I think that is a rhetorical question. When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue

A few days ago, I wrote about the death of Nikolai Glushkov, a Russian exile and former close associate of the late oligarch Boris Berezovsky. Glushkov had run afoul of Vladimir Putin and was jailed on money laundering and fraud charges in 2004. After he was released, he fled to Great Britain. Berezovsky was with the Russian president during his rise to power in the 1990s until he had a falling out with him in 1999 and fled to London. In 2013, he was found hanging in his home -- a suicide, the coroner said. Glushkov was found dead in his home

TAMPA — Past midnight, a few hours after he reported his wife’s death, Harold Allen sat in an interrogation room wearing shorts, flip-flops and a faded white T-shirt. Gray hair peeked out of a dark ball cap. "I should have made her get her butt to the hospital," he said with a shrug. "And I just respected her feelings, which I shouldn’t have done, I guess." This was how he explained Karen Allen’s slide from a 74-year-old wife and mother of two to the 68 pounds of flesh and bone that homicide detectives found beneath a bedsheet that day in January 2017. Explanations did not satisfy investigators.

The climate debate is one of the most important discussions in the world today. At stake are billions of dollars, millions of jobs, and -- if people like Canadian environmental activist Dr. David Suzuki are right -- the fate of the global environment. Consequently, we need all parties in the debate to behave responsibly. Sadly, climate discussions are often poisoned by misrepresentations and errors in reasoning. Suzuki does this in “Climate science deniers’ credibility tested,” his March 1 article attacking those of us who question the science promoted by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano explained Monday why he believes the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe could be viewed as "obstruction of justice." (Snip) Napolitano said he sees the firing as "reckless" and "vindictive" because McCabe is "more likely than not to be a witness" against Sessions´ boss, President Trump. "Firing him in that environment could very well be interpreted as an effort to diminish his effectiveness as a witness. What´s that called? Obstruction of justice," said Napolitano, adding he´s unsure if Special Counsel Robert Mueller will pursue such a case. Napolitano said on "America´s Newsroom"

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

SAN FRANCISCO — A woman in Tempe, Ariz., died after being hit by a self-driving car operated by Uber, in what appears to be the first known death of a pedestrian struck by an autonomous vehicle on public roads. The Uber vehicle was in autonomous mode with a human safety driver at the wheel when it struck the woman, who was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk, the Tempe police said in a statement. The episode occurred overnight, although the authorities did not specify whether it was late Sunday or early Monday. The woman was not publicly identified. An

A prominent Republican says that Donald Trump would doom his presidency if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller. Sen Lindsey Graham, during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union”, said that Mr Mueller is following the evidence where it takes him as he investigates Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. Getting rid of Mr Mueller, the senator said, would be a step too far. “If he tried to do that, that would be the beginning of the end of his presidency, because we´re a rule of law nation,” Mr Graham said. ”I think it´s very important he be allowed to do

The firing of Andrew McCabe, the discovery of his “private notes,” the ill-tempered response by other Obama loyalists and a yet to be disclosed Inspector General’s report on an investigation that began before Donald Trump had come to office are all pieces of a story that dwarfs the still absent evidence of anything Trump and company did to cooperate with Russians in changing votes in Michigan and Wisconsin. So many Democrats and Republicans have asserted the lack of evidence in the Russian collusion issue its become comical if not annoying to endure as the uninformed continue to argue otherwise.

Armed sheriff´s deputies appeared on the scene of the recent school massacre in Florida while kids were still being murdered inside. But the deputies failed to storm the building to apprehend the killer, to rescue the assaulted, to stop the bleeding and to comfort the dying. They failed to do their jobs. Instead, they cowered behind their patrol cars waiting for, well, apparently waiting for the shooting to stop. Some 150 bullets and 17 lives later, it finally did and the killer walked away. Only then did the deputies enter the building. About that, President Donald Trump characteristically said what he thought. He
