A few unmentioned questions come to mind: 1. What about psychotropic drugs? 2. Could vulnerable people be used to commit these crimes? 3. Cui bono?

“Yet, America had plenty of guns when its mass murder rate was much lower. Grant Duwe, a Ph.D. in criminology and director of research and evaluation at the Minnesota Department of Corrections, gathered data going back 100 years in his 2007 book, “Mass Murder in the United States: A History.”

Duwe’s data reveal: In the 20th century, every decade before the 1970s had fewer than 10 mass public shootings. In the 1950s, for example, there was one mass shooting. And then a steep rise began. In the 1960s, there were six mass shootings. In the 1970s, the number rose to 13. In the 1980s, the number increased 2 1/2 times, to 32. And it rose again in the 1990s, to 42. As for this century, The New York Times reported in 2014 that, according to the FBI, “Mass shootings have risen drastically in the past half-dozen years.”

Given the same ubiquity of guns, wouldn’t the most productive question be what, if anything, has changed since the 1960s and ’70s? Of course it would. And a great deal has changed. America is much more ethnically diverse, much less religious. Boys have far fewer male role models in their lives. Fewer men marry, and normal boy behavior is largely held in contempt by their feminist teachers, principals and therapists. Do any or all of those factors matter more than the availability of guns?”

“Last week, more than 1,000 immigrants surged through the U.S. southern border near El Paso, Texas — the largest number ever encountered by U.S. Border Control and Protection, with the previous record being set in the month of April, which was 424.

This unprecedented invasion spurred President Donald J. Trump to slap a 5 percent tariff on goods from Mexico in an effort to get the Mexican government to take seriously the problem of undocumented immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

The mainstream media, predictably, started lamenting on how the price of avocados for American consumers may potentially increase a few cents, and completely ignored the $200 billion American taxpayers pay each year in illegal immigration costs. Not to mention the cost of illegal drugs on our youth, and the cost to education and health care on American taxpayers.”

Civics 101 If you don’t like the RINOS vote in the primaries. Primaries don’t contend with Dark Money, maybe vote tampering. Vote. Get off the couch.

“Earlier this week GOP Senators undermined President Trump in his efforts to pressure Mexico to prevent the hundreds of thousands of illegals who are traveling through their country to the US.

They said they would not support tariffs on our southern enemy.  They won’t support this president.”

Try boarding a plane without proper ID. Cui bono?

“The federal agency tasked with overseeing security at transportation hubs has been violating its own policy by allowing migrants who have been released from federal custody onto flights despite not having required documents, according to several Department of Homeland Security officials.

For the past six months, the Transportation Security Administration has allowed migrants released from the custody of other Homeland Security agencies to board flights to other parts of the country despite the passengers lacking any of the 15 documents it states are the only acceptable forms of identification.”

“Project Veritas interviewed a tech insider who blew the whistle on how Pinterest listed top pro-life sites as “porn” and censored Bible verses.

The insider, who wished to remain anonymous, described in detail how Pinterest blocks Christian terms and Bible verses by not allowing the terms to trend, blocking them from notifications and the auto-complete feature.”

“Ocasio-Cortez made several comparisons between public school arithmetic lessons and concentration camps, referencing the brutality of the Holocaust throughout her address.

“Kids are, like, being forced to learn numbers and do, like, long division,” she said. “And even short and medium-sized division. This is basically what happened in the Holocaust. Math teachers are, like, pretty much fascists. We should call them Add-Olf Hitler. You know, because of the additioning they make us do.”

“This isn’t happening in the ’40s either—this is happening in 2019,” she added as she began trying to cook some instant noodles in the microwave. “We are basically living in Nazi Germany now.”

Ocasio-Cortez was forced to cut off her live stream after smoke began billowing out of her microwave.”

“The Left hates many things, and Trump, the person, is not even one of them.  Leftists loved Trump when he was one of them.  The Left loved the Hollywood Trump as he starred in The Apprentice and was firing people left and right.  They loved the Trump who donated to Hillary and other leftist politicians.  The Left loved the billionaire and playboy Trump.

So what does the Left hate?

The Left hates many things, including what Trump stands for.

Trump stands for making America great.”

The dinosaur media is done. Stick a fork in it.

“Since Trump was supposedly doomed to a short, ignoble presidency marred by countless scandals and corruption, many top activists at these fake news outlets eagerly put themselves at the disposal of the “Get Trump” #Resistance machine inside the federal agencies.

These political partisans were consciously working hand-in-hand with corrupt federal officials in both law enforcement and intelligence agencies to launch fake scandals that would cripple and sabotage the incoming Trump administration, assuring that Trump’s time in power would be very brief.

I’ve talked in the past about the practice of “strategic leaking,” how corrupt federal officials target a person for investigation and make anonymous leaks to media allies to place the target under suspicion.

This is exactly how they went after Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, Trump national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn, and others. Leak incomplete, slanted, or fake information to the mainstream media to drum up media cries for the target to be investigated, then move to answer the cries you created with your own leak.”

“published an unhinged op-ed recommending in precise detail the illegal doxxing of Border Patrol agents, their middle managers, the money-starved detention center operators and any business that might supply them for fair consideration. It’s quite a change, because up until now, they haven’t even revealed the identities of U.S. spies or rape victims. But anyone trying to enforce the U.S. border law has become fair game.”

“Democrat presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ father recently rebuked her for using the stereotype that Jamaicans like those in her family smoke marijuana.

It turns out that Harris’ father Donald Harris made a startling admission in an essay he wrote entitled “Reflections of a Jamaican Father” which was published at Jamaica Global Online:

“My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me).

The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown’s Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism, was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte).”

Geeze, thanks for letting me know. I always want to go to a restaurant where spittle of servers goes on!

“The owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, penned an op-ed in the Washington Post Friday defending a Chicago server who spit on Eric Trump.

Stephanie Wilkinson, who co-owns the restaurant known for kicking out former press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, wrote in the op-ed while “no one in the restaurant industry condones the physical assault of a patron,” Trump administration officials can be targeted for assault and battery in public places.”

“Hector Garza told Neil Cavuto: Speaking to agents that were at that facility, they say that AOC walked in there beginning a war against our agents. And just to let you know, Neil, there is footage where Ocasio-Cortez is actually going up to our agents and being very threatening and being very abusive with the border patrol agents. And that video is in the hands of CBP right now, the headquarters and we hope that CBP releases that footage.”

“Epstein was closely connected to former President Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II, who is the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom. Both flew frequently on Epstein’s private jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express.” President Trump was Epstein’s neighbor in Palm Beach and a former friend. He also flew on Epstein’s plane.”

The only thing that I can say about President Trump is that he is the only person who, in 2009 when I served a lot of subpoenas on a lot of people, or at least gave notice to some pretty connected people, that I want to talk to them, is the only person who picked up the phone and said, let’s just talk.  I’ll give you as much time as you want.  I’ll tell you what you need to know, and was very helpful, in the information that he gave, and gave no indication whatsoever that he was involved in anything untoward whatsoever, but had good information.  That checked out and that helped us and we didn’t have to take a deposition of him in 2009.

Reporter:  Do you have any information on James Patterson’s claims that Trump had Epstein kicked out of Mar-a-logo?

Edwards: I definitely have heard that. I definitely have heard that and I don’t know if it was Trump himself as opposed to a manager…”

“In May 2016 FOX News reported that former President Bill Clinton traveled with Jeffrey Epstein on his famous “Lolita Express” at least 26 times and frequently ditched his secret service detail.

And now this…

OANN reported that the Clinton Presidential Library is refusing to hand over information on Bill Clinton’s ties to Jeffrey Epstein.”
