I’ll Bet You I Know an FBI “Expert”

…who sure wishes he could take a quote back right about now.

James Gagliano, retired member of the FBI’s elite hostage rescue team, gave CNN THIS assessment of the Broward Sheriff’s Department’s performance on Feb 15, during a discussion of changes to protocols post-Columbine:


School Resource Officer Left Those Kids to Die

Something horrific broke yesterday – of course, the day AFTER the Orange County Sheriff blustered his anti-gun way through a mob-enhanced CNN townhall – that should have every single person in this country’s eyes crossed in rage.

That very same sheriff’s “school resource officer” was ON SCENE at the high school as Cruz slaughtered faculty and students alike, and basically hiding in the bushes.

…[Sheriff] Israel said the video shows Peterson arriving at the west side of Building 12 and taking up a position, but he didn’t go inside. Israel said Peterson “clearly” knew there was a shooter in the building and was outside for about four minutes. The shooting lasted about six minutes, Israel said.

When asked what the deputy should have done, Israel said, “Went in, addressed the killer, killed the killer.”

The video isn’t being disclosed, Israel said.

I’ll bet it isn’t.

As IF his cowardice in the face of evil wasn’t enough, yet another story breaks this morning that Deputy Peterson had actually SHIELDED the gunman during a Child Services investigation in 2016:

Peterson is mentioned as part of a 2016 social services agency investigation into Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old identified by police as the gunman. According to a Florida Department of Children and Families report detailing that investigation, Peterson was approached by investigators and “refused to share any information … regarding [an] incident that took place with” the teenager.

That same year, the sheriff’s office revealed Thursday, it was told about “third hand information” from a “neighbor’s son” suggesting that Cruz “planned to shoot up the school,” although the specific school was not listed. The sheriff’s office said a deputy contacted the caller, determined that Cruz had knives and a BB gun and sent the information to the school resource officer — presumably Peterson. It is unclear whether he investigated.

HOW badly did the Orange County Sheriff and the FBI blow MULTIPLE CHANCES to prevent this tragedy from ever beginning, less mind coming to the point of bodies in the hall:

Read and weep:

‘School shooter in the making’: All the times authorities were warned about Nikolas Cruz

Nikolas Cruz’s dangerous and disturbing behavior was flagged repeatedly to authorities, both local and federal, over a span of two years starting in February 2016. But no one stopped him before he killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Here’s a time line of incidents where Cruz was reported to law enforcement. Many of the incidents involve the threat of a school shooting.

But the Orange County Sheriff blames the NRA.
The children at the CNN mobhall shout “You’re a MURDERER!!!” at Dana Loesch.
If you haven’t heard, Alamo, Enterprise and National car rental companies are withdrawing their NRA discount programs from LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS…

…and an Omaha Bank has already discontinued its NRA associated card.

Remind me again, WHO pulled that trigger in that school?

WHO had the chance to DO THEIR JOBS every single time a report came in on this monster?

Why, the LAW ABIDING CITIZEN MEMBERS of the NRA, that’s who…apparently.

Talk about targeting.

The Parkland Horror

So many signals, so many chances for this NOT TO HAPPEN.


I am shaking my head at all this talk of “children” having to “learn” to “talk” to the “different” kids now. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? “Cool kids” don’t talk to each other anymore at the lunch table, less mind take notice of the less than socially adept kid. They all are glued to their phones. The child who is IN that isolated position or, even worse, tortured at school because of his “differences,” real or imaginary, USED to be able to ESCAPE once the school day ended and the terrible gauntlet of a bus ride or lonely walk home was safely passaged. NOW, there IS no escape. The torture comes at your 24/7, reaches into that formerly safe space where frazzled, hurt feelings could be soothed and quieted to face the next day, the next round. There IS no respite for the weird, the outsider now. No healing. No chance to mature, get your feet under you and, hopefully, grow out of the terrific resentment and hate built up by being SO different in this newer world these kids exist in. It’s horribly sad and terrifically dangerous. No conversational skills, no empathy development, no coping mechanisms learned, and THAT’S for the regular “everyone gets a trophy” crowd.

All I ever see, even in a group of school girls walking down the street, is heads in their phones. No giggling, hands over their mouths secret sharing. No shrieks of silly horror between them, unless it’s about a momentary picture they share between them. Then back to the screens. With nary a word. No wonder they’re melting down in schools, mentally and sometimes murderously.

The Siamese twin elephant in the room is disintegration of parental skills enabled by/coupled with the rise of technology and the end result being foisted upon society.

There is nothing to recommend what’s coming.

Whoever’s Service This Young Man Belonged to

this is GHASTLY:

Russian pilot blows himself up to avoid capture by jihadists

…Maj. Roman Filipov’s Sukhoi 25SM fighter was struck by a portable surface-to-air missile as he flew low over opposition-held Idlib in northwestern Syria, according to the UK’s Telegraph.

The 33-year-old pilot managed to keep the plane in the air briefly but was forced to bail out after one of the engines failed and his flight controls became unresponsive.

Extremists from al Qaeda-linked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham opened fire on him after his parachute opened, but he made it to the ground and shot two of the rebels with his Stechkin pistol, the Express reported.

Dramatic video circulating in social media shows the fighters ducking as the gutsy aviator then shouts, “This is for our guys!

He then pulls the grenade’s pin and blows himself up.

But, really, the only alternative to capture when facing Obama’s JV Team, considering their well cataloged horrific treatment of anybody and everybody NOT THEM.

I only wish he could have taken more of the vile animals with him.

The Mote In The Eye

Reeeeeeaaaallllly blocks the vision sometimes

Our encounter changed the day for me. While I tried to dive back into my liberal podcast, my mind kept being pulled back to the gas station. I couldn’t stop thinking about the man who called himself a “redneck” who came to our rescue. I sized him up as a Trump voter, just as he likely drew inferences from my Prius and RESIST sticker. But for a moment, we were just two people and the exchange was kindness (his) and gratitude (mine).

As I drove home, I felt the full extent to which Trump has actually diminished my own desire to be kind. He is keeping me so outraged that I hold ill will toward others on a daily basis. Trump is not just ruining our nation, he is ruining me. By the end of the drive, I felt heartbroken.

If You Ever Need A Textbook Definition Of “Projection”…

…just watch Cathy Newman here.

It is gobsmacking, and I have no idea how he maintains his calm after being repeatedly misquoted to his face.

On So Many Levels This Is The Perfect Democratic Candidate

One who really sums up the mess we have right now

Chelsea Manning releases first campaign ad in Senate run

I cant wait to see the opposition ads in the primary…it really puts them in a bind. This will be delicious.

I’m Sure This Is Trump’s Fault Too

Because, you know, shitholes

ON SATURDAY, A day after becoming aware of a massive store of rebuilding materials being held by the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, the U.S. federal government — the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, along with their security detail — entered a Palo Seco warehouse owned by the public utility to claim and distribute the equipment, according to a spokesperson for the Corps.

Rumors of a tense standoff had been circulating on the island, but the encounter was confirmed to The Intercept in a statement from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Asked if the federal officers were armed when they entered the warehouse, USACE spokesperson Luciano Vera said they were indeed accompanied by security detail and quickly began distributing the material after seizing it.

Manafort Indictment

So I’ve read through this and it has absolutely nothing to do with Trump, but that’s not the point, right?

It’s all about pressuring him to talk.

Pittsburgh Steeler Alexander Villaneuva Stood Tall and Alone Yesterday

…while his “team” cowered in the tunnel behind him, purportedly for “unity’s” sake.

On a friend’s Facebook post, as she’s from the area, there was a discussion and a comment was made to me I felt compelled to answer. I’m sharing.

It’s how I feel.

She’s So Pissed

…she’s shaking, lol.

How disconcerting when the worm you created turns on you.



They are Berklempt

Their demands are insatiable

The student body at Berkeley has a lot on their plate these days what with the imminent arrival of Ben Shapiro sending everyone scrambling for their safe spaces and all. But with so much to be done on the social justice front there’s simply no rest for the weary.

In case you hadn’t heard, there are offensively named buildings to be tackled on campus. We must wipe away all vestiges of racism or colonialism or… something. With that in mind, the students are looking to change the name of Barrows Hall. That one clearly has to go because of the evil, sordid history of the man it was named after. (The College Fix)

click through to see who they want to rename the building after.

Nothing surprises me any more, but at least they are showing their true colors.

Since All Our Eyes Were Glued to Texas

…the enfant terribles of AntiFa figured they could go on an umimpeded violence rampage in Berkeley last night, and that no one would notice.

Berkeley cops didn’t ~ they made sure they huddled together for shelter ~ but other folks took note.

My Words for You All to Live By Today

Trump Was Nothing But Slabs of RED MEAT

…in West Virginia tonight ~ big, bloody slabs slapped across the counter time after time, again and again. His (hard) working class audience ate that up and so, frankly, did we sitting on the couch in Pensacola. It was NOTHING if not a celebration of PRIDE in this beat-to-snot country of ours, a booming expression of optimism for the future (Not HOPE, mind you, but a full throated roar of WE ARE AMERICA AND NOBODY DOES IT BETTER). Plus a big middle finger to every Russian obsessed Dem, Repub and media type who are still scraping along “looking for a crime,” as Krauthammer puts it.

Those people (and the thousands outside the arena who couldn’t make it in) were fired up and so was Trump. It wasn’t oratory. It was plain speaking.

And it wasn’t long before our betters in the media were explaining how pathetic those souls are and then carefully wiping their glasses after scribing meticulously wrought condescension of the most elite sort.


Stu Rothenberg’s tale of being burdened by a coal mining father-in-law was so carefully structured, I felt it incumbent upon me to help him flesh it out. You know – say what he was YEARNING to say, if only his sense of delicacy wasn’t so strong, his innate sense of his societal place and its responsibilities to the lower orders so refined after years of practice that free expression is prohibited.

Don’t worry your pretty creases, Stu. I got your back.

I have the unique ability to transcend class barriers and am not ashamed to assist when needed in translation.

I Know These Transcripts Were Released to Wound Trump

But I don’t think this conversation hurts Trump with your average American voter at all. Finally an American president is WORRIED about who might be coming in, in a deal made by a president who could give a shit?

…“I hate taking these people,” Trump said later in the 24-minute conversation. “I guarantee you they are bad. That is why they are in prison right now. They are not going to be wonderful people who go on to work for the local milk people.”

Turnbull attempted to appeal to Trump’s experience as a businessman.

“There is nothing more important in business or politics than a deal is a deal,” Turnbull told Trump. “You can certainly say that it was not a deal that you would have done, but you are going to stick with it.”

Trump said that he was concerned that one of the refugees would “become the Boston bomber in five years.”

“I think it is a horrible deal, a disgusting deal that I would have never made,” Trump added. “As far as I am concerned, that is enough, Malcolm. I have had it.”

I don’t see the problem.

But they need to hunt down whoever leaked these like Gollum looking for his Precious. Let’s see what Gen Kelly can do.

An Exciting New Clinton Volume About to Be Released

Hillary’s new book is (for REALS) titled:

What Happened

An explanation, not a query?

I dunno, what? We’ve heard EVERY FRICKIN’ EXCUSE in the world from her repeatedly, ad nauseum, since two days after Election Night, when her hangover/drug induced stupor finally wore off.
Now we get to buy the print version?


Beats me, too.

Think I’ll pass.

Someone’s Career Is Over

And someone was asleep at the wheel

The bodies of missing sailors were found in flooded compartments of the USS Fitzgerald, which came close to sinking after a collision with a container ship off Japan tore a gash under the warship’s waterline, the U.S. Navy’s Seventh Fleet commander said on Sunday.

Vice Adm. Joseph P. Aucoin declined to say how many of the seven missing sailors had been recovered, but Japanese media said all had died. “Out of concern for the families and the notification process, I will decline to state how many we have found at this time,” Aucoin told a news conference.

The search at sea had ended, Aucoin said.

The USS Fitzgerald could have foundered, or even sunk, but for the crew’s desperate efforts to save the ship, he said.

Who decided that crossing a containership’s “T” at 2am was a good idea?

Don’t Worry England

They’re only up to FOURTEEN lonely wolves so far…

UPDATE: I stand corrected five minutes later.


“Lone” Not So Much

“UNKNOWN”…not so much either.

Members of his own family had even informed on him in the past, telling British authorities that he was dangerous.

But you all probably already guessed that.

But Just “Carry On,” England

Carry on. EXACTLY as before.


The morning tally for the carnage is 22 dead ~ mostly little girls of giggly, go-to-girlie-concerts-in-tutus age ~ and 119 wounded from a “sophisticated” IED (“made by an expert”) packed with nails, detonated by someone “known to authorities.”

Oh, yeah ~ the Death Cult has come out claiming responsibility and doing their ghoulish victory lap.

ISIS have claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing at a packed Manchester pop concert which killed 22 people, including children, and injured 120 others.

The terror group said ‘one of the caliphate’s soldiers placed bombs among the crowds’ at the Ariana Grande concert last night, in the most deadly terror attack Britain has seen since the 7/7 bombings.

Traumatised families have told how of nuts and bolts tore into young music fans when the blast was detonated in the foyer area of the Manchester Arena moments after a concert by the US popstar ended.

Police this morning confirmed that the suicide bomber, who was known to authorities, died inside the arena. US security sources said the bomber had travelled to the venue on public transport.

A 23-year-old man was arrested by anti-terror officers in the south of the city as police and security services attempt to work out if the suicide bomber was part of a cell. Security sources have told MailOnline that initial analysis of the ‘sophisticated’ device suggests it was made by an expert.

Anybody tired of this shit YET?

The Independent paper in England is already saying the best way to beat the terrorists is to “carry on exactly as before,” which is what the English’ve done death after death after death. Well, besides worry that all the carnage caused by the monsters in their midst will somehow upset, intimidate and frighten the communities in their midst which birth, harbor and nurture such monsters. The first priority besides bandages, flowers, candles and sidewalk shrines has been these cloistered, coddled communities’ feelings, not foaming, unmitigated outrage at the death caused by them. Do you see that changing? We have been weeping and “carrying on” since Miss Emily of It Comes In Pints said “England! FUCK YEAH!” after the tube bombings in 2005. TWO THOUSAND FIVE!!!

And bollocks has changed for the British in England.

I asked last night and will keep asking, even though the answer sickens me. Is there no lion left in the English soul?

Is there no England left in the British heart?

Absolutely NOTHING to See Here

…Because of the suspicious circumstances and fear for the man’s safety, the men were placed in the squad while officers searched their car.

Inside, the officers found a hand grenade, handgun, assault rifles and magazines and a large quantity of ammunition, the complaint said. They also found cellphones, computers and electronics equipment, including drone parts.

Bomb squad personnel called to the scene noted that the large amount of ammunition and electronic devices could be used for bomb-making, the complaint said…

And his name WASN’T “Fred Smith.”

The Resistance is Real

Also very manly.

Note to Bingley: wear galoshes into work today. #Resisting is wet work
