    Now that a whole lineup of craven corporations have abandoned the NRA relationship (they loved our money before this), it’s time to watch what corporations fill the void and support them.
    The Corporations who have fled are de facto blaming NRA (us, gun owners, patriots) for the failure of a corrupted FBI, flaccid Sheriff’s Dept and Cult-following School Board and Social Services that failed to prevent the tragedy at every step for years.

    I never eschew personal responsibility. But I’ll be damned if I and my membership in NRA will be pasted over with the Lies from the Cult that gun owners are to blame.

    It is more clear each day that the rights in the Bill of Rights are the main target of the ideologues in the Cult. They spent eight vicious years using the government in DC against patriots. Now they are using Alinsky tactics, Soros money and MSM and social media (Silicon Valley Billionaire Elites) to accuse us of their crimes.

    The Cult of Liberals wholly own Parkland. It’s 100% a product of their sick ideology.

    The NRA will stand strong and proud that the depraved who have slaughtered innocents are not from among the ranks of 2nd Amendment Rights gun owners.

    Cruz was “nurtured” by the Cult’s degenerate policies.

    Hollywood and Video game makers, all Liberal practitioners of violence, horror and gore have produced generations of mentally warped children and young people. All are responsible for Parkland and the prior horrors.

    They are serving poisoned food for weak and tender minds.
    They need to be branded for their work.

    This shooting in Florida stinks to high heaven. I am VERY wary of conspiracy theories and tend to be a proponent of Occam’s razor. Suggestions that someone conditioned the shooter to deliberately perform this act are not convincing (especially since the shooter survived).

    That all said, this whole thing has an orchestrated feel about it.

      What did the Sheriff say the deputy was supposed to do? Go kill the shooter. With the kid dead this would play out to their plan. With him alive, he’s a living product of their failures.
      Yes, they really screwed up. Cruz lives.

      Now, they will twist the demand for the death penalty into a cause they will campaign for.

      That’s how they roll.

        That kid acted on his own. Since his adoptive Mom passed away in November he was all alone and the poor fool has been skating on thin ice. It was only a matter of time before he snapped and nobody wanted to get involved. The school and local LEOs had ample opportunity over the years to identify him as someone who should never be allowed to purchase a firearm, but they gig nothing. Pretty sure that if it had been a DeepState operation he would have been found dead on the scene with a “self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

        He absolutely was conditioned through their inaction that enabled his behavior. It is their “no tell” policies that allowed Cruz to acquire the weapons he used to commit this atrocity in light of their multiple previous encounters with him, not to mention, the BSO’s cowardly actions during the actual event.

        Laura Ingraham had the head of the deputy’s union on her show. He reiterated that the deputies are not supposed to arrest students. They have to manipulate the discipline reports so they don’t reflect criminality on the part of the students. They were probably told they couldn’t go in the school. They are convenient scapegoats. The sheriff is a disgrace blaming the deputies when they all knew Cruz was violent and had mental problems. We can’t have the school to prison pipeline in Broward County!

      Cruz told authorities he hears voices. That’s typical of someone with schizophrenia it’s also a good way for attorneys and the court to dismiss anything he says as crazy talk. The official narratives surrounding most of these incidences the last 6 years or so stink to high heaven.

      After this tragedy and rethinking some of the others, I coming around to entertaining some of these as possible conspiracies, especially seeing how furiously the left has dug in this time.

      What’s upsetting (besides the tragedy itself) is, little by little, they’re getting President Trump to do even what Obama didn’t. He’s made an overly generous offer on immigration, (which I realize was part of a greater strategy, but still) and now banning bump stocks and entertaining (practically agreeing to) raising the age for some gun purchases to 21 years old. He’s done some very good things since taking office but I hope the wheels aren’t falling off of his presidency. He’s being relentlessly attacked on all fronts and maybe it’s getting to him.

    How do we get the truth to people who only listen to the MSM and are blinded “sheep”?

    We here at CTH have access to documented truth and the unfettered opinions of truly informed individuals who have not farmed their words, phrases, and body language before focus groups in order to control their listeners. Our minds and spirits are set free by the truth, yet if there were no alternative to the propaganda dispensed by the MSM many of us would be lost.

    As I write this, there is a movement gaining ground to silence us, though we have prevailed on many fronts just by electing Donald Trump and as a result having “net neutrality” eliminated.

    http://allnewspipeline.com/Utterly_Chilling_The_Anvil_Drops.php

    A free press is a true threat to the left. They can only prevail through lies and thuggery. This combination has been very effective though, in taking over the world.

    Western leaning countries were toppled under Obama. He intefered in the elections of some of them (Canada, Israel, Australia?, England?) and where he did not prevail he and Clinton relied on the use of force as in the Arab Spring, and by creating and using Isis, by Gun running (fast and furious), by arming “rebels”, and through the guidance and assistance of and in partnership with Soros and the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Right now we are one of the last true havens for Christians and Jews left in the world. Islamic terror against these groups throughout the globe is being covered up and we, many of us complacent in personal comfort, turn a blind eye on the suffering and anguish of our brethren when news of it leaks out. We generallydo not ever hear of this through MSM, because focus of MSM is to cover up any truth hurtful to leftist groups and instead dispense propaganda favoring their cause.

    The left is adept at using lies and a co-opted legal system against its foes.

    In light of the work of Clinton/Obama and company, the “legal” challanges to Netanyahu seem oddly familiar, as though they were being orchestrated by those who worked against him in the last election.

    Obama, many on our side say, is naive and his policies make no sense. I disagree. I think that his policies make a lot of sense and that he has been remarkably effective. He has fundamentally transformed the globe—not just our country—and his work is not yet done.

    Have the forces that he and the left are partnered with stopped at violence anywhere else in the world? I don’t think so.

    Therefore I think that it is safer to be on guard and put nothing past the left and their leaders in terms of violence, disinformation, and methods of evil that they will use to attain their goals.

    To many on the left I believe that we are not only expendable, but are considered enemies whose demise is desirable.

    Thoughtful consideration of all of this would help more of us to take the 2018 elections very seriously. For what we are up against—prevention is far less painful than the cure.

      An army of citizens out in full force putting doubt into their family, friends and acquaintances’ mind about simple facts of media’s mental persuasion. Anything you come across in your daily conversations not politically related such as bad gossip mongering that parallels what is happening on a global politica level. People move out of their brainwashed zone into something they personally experience. People need deprogramming but you have to find the chink in the media armor built with millions of media$.

      Another good one to try is to drop hints to people when they whine and cry about such bad things going on in the news, tell them the news makes money off of provoking them for ad dollar hits. Tell them they are being bombarded with what is technically termed as “infomercials” – media paid to sell a certain viewpoint on behalf of a sponsor but pass it off as news since they are generally viewed as “real” and “unbiased”.

      I also found that if it is difficult to have this discussion on politics with coworkers and family, then do your best to inform others with whom you do not have a stake. In other words, you reach out to my family and I reach out to your family so to speak. Combined result works better!

Will always believe that that was why his much smarter puppeteer had to literally live in the WH with him. And bizarrely, still does live with him and his wife.

          If *IF* there were to be any arm conflict with a country like Venezuela, it would be a disaster for Venezuela. Venezuela is very weak. It has never had a strong military. And now after all these years of Marxism they have depleted the country of its resources and even soldiers do whatever they have to do to feed themselves and their families.

          I have distant relatives there and they tell me the whole country is in chaos. Even Chavistas are starving. If they were to find a way to get rid of the country’s leadership and Maduro is taken out, they would do it because there are more suffering people than not.
          Venezuela is very weak. The country’s only income comes from its oil production/export and that has declined significantly in the last few years. They are desperate. The only thing that is keeping Maduro in power is his armed thugs.

          If Venezuela in its golden years would have gone to war, it would have been very costly to them in both blood and treasure. If they go to war in their current broken condition they couldn’t withstand it at all.
          Their Latin American neighbors are not better condition either. So, they would not get help from the likes of Cuba or Brazil or Argentina. They are all broke!
          The only possible players they may appeal to would be China and/or Russia. No matter, the US would not engage Maduro in any arm conflict.

    Dr. Steve Piecinik says we are being distracted by Florida – the Middle East is heating up in a very unusual way, never before seen. First read of his qualitification, then watch him interviewed by Owen Shroyer at InfoWars.

    Background:

    Pieczenik was Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance and James Baker.[2] His expertise includes foreign policy, international crisis management and psychological warfare.[7] He served the presidential administrations of Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush in the capacity of deputy assistant secretary.[8]

    In 1974, Pieczenik joined the United States Department of State as a consultant to help in the restructuring of its Office for the Prevention of Terrorism.[1]

    In 1976, Pieczenik was made Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for management.[1][4][9][10]

    At the Department of State, he served as a “specialist on hostage taking”.[11] He has been credited with devising successful negotiating strategies and tactics used in several high-profile hostage situations, including the 1976 TWA Flight 355 hostage situation and the 1977 kidnapping of the son of Cyprus’ president.[1] He was involved in negotiations for the release of Aldo Moro after Moro was kidnapped.[12] As a renowned psychiatrist, he was utilized as a press source for early information on the mental state of the hostages involved in the Iran hostage crisis after they were freed.[13] In 1977, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Mary McGrory described Stephen Pieczenik as “one of the most ‘brilliantly competent’ men in the field of terrorism”.[14] He worked “side by side” with Police Chief Maurice J. Cullinane in the Washington, D.C. command center of Mayor Walter Washington during the 1977 Hanafi Siege.[15] In 1978, Pieczenik was known as “a psychiatrist and political scientist in the U.S. Department of State whose credentials and experiences are probably unique among officials handling terrorist situations”.[1]

    On September 17, 1978 the Camp David Accords were signed. Pieczenik was at the secret Camp David negotiations leading up to the signing of the Accords. He worked out strategy and tactics based on psychopolitical dynamics. He correctly predicted that given their common backgrounds, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin would get along.[2]

    In 1979, he resigned as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State over the handling of the Iranian hostage crisis.

I leave this guy alone more and more, and I will wait to see if Sundance or others make anything of his “rants” as you say. Really smart and knowledge about people can usually explain themselves better.

        Jokes aside I agree with you.

        For some reason I am sensitive when someone wants to manipulate. I was that way all my life and therefore difficult for those who tried to manipulate.

      Another throw away. “Bump stocks” are stupidly ineffective anyway (unless one is planning on shooting into masses of people). Besides, if SHTF, ARs are fairly easy to modify to full auto anyway. Parts are readily available, and good preppers already know the right gunsmiths.

      Agree! What POTUS Trump wants is to change our schools from gun-free zones to conceal-carry locations where well trained personnel, who are in significant numbers retired military individuals, to be the defense/offense counter to any would-be school shooter or any shooter who manages to get inside.

      Besides that, POTUS Trump wants background checks to be more effective at screening out mental health issues and thus preventing the sales of guns/fire arms to anybody who has a mental condition.

      On this second point, I am sure that there will be an effort to define what is meant by mental health issues/conditions for all those conditions that are not as obvious as others.

She promptly offered a prescription, which I declined. I’m not taking any of their darned poison!

    We don’t need more laws; we need to effect the ones that exist. These school shootings are just another Cloward-Piven tactic — this time replacing the welfare system with our justice system — where the end game remains the same: send our country into chaos, thus allowing totalitarianism in some form or another. Hint: another form of “But what about the chillllllllll-dren?” said with varying degrees of emotion.

    Education is a states’ issue and not that of our federal government where, for every dollar collected, 75-cents ends up in some bureaucrat’s pocket and the remaining 25 cents come with strings attached that cost the states another two bucks to implement.

    Not one penny of our federal taxes should be spent at or on any school. Just because the Progressives have morphed the subject into the jurisdiction of the NWO does not mean it belongs there under our U.S. Constitutional, Bill of RIghts or any amendment. PDJT and Sec’y Vos should slowly but deliberately (to minimize more chaos) move all such issues back to the local school districts as designated by the states. Let the very local parents, teachers and communities battle it out with their governors and legislatures. The closer to home, the better.

These two by French make a very good defense of assault weapons; “Assault Weapons Preserve the Purpose of the Second Amendment” and a gun control measure to consider regarding the use of restraining orders he calls GVROs; “A Gun-Control Measure Conservatives Should Consider” which is very apropos to this last incident.

      mauiis,

      I’m going to use your following statement to make a point.

      “The FBI allowed this salamander to act out his much publicized intent.”

      The FBI, an agency of around 35,000 people did not allow anything. Here are three articles that explain what actually happened and a transcript of the phone call to the FBI PAL call center.

      The first article explains how the FBI is supposed to handle PAL calls.

      https://www.naplesnews.com/story/news/nation/2018/02/19/how-fbi-handled-two-tips-related-nikolas-cruz/352142002/

      The following is a link to the transcript. Please notice what if any questions the call taker asks.

      http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/FBI-transcript-02-23-2018.pdf

      And last the FBI’s explanation about the mistake that was made.

      https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02-23/there-was-mistake-made-fbis-no-2-refuses-provide-details-how-cruz-tips-were-fumbled

      Those who were paying attention may recall me posting several days ago about the type of customer service model the PAL was modeled. The PAL is setup on a business model and not a law enforcement/911 model.

      https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/02/16/say-something-do-nothing-fbi-statement-on-parkland-florida-school-shooting/comment-page-1/#comment-5024340

      Now look at the number of calls and online forms are received at the PAL per year.

      “Last year, the FBI received about 765,000 calls, in addition to about 750,000 Internet tips, and 9 out of 10 did not produce leads that could be followed.”

      All indications at this time is that someone at the call center used poor judgement and did not forward the call for a follow up. Please go back and look at the transcript. Does that conversation show the call taker asking the types of questions an investigator would ask in an effort to obtain more details about a possibly violent suspect or is the call taker’s questions, those of person who is filling in the blanks on a form?

      The FBI did not cover it up and had admitted a mistake was made. How the FBI responds to this error and what measures they take to prevent it from happening again is what we should watch.

      Take care and stay safe

        So perhaps the FBI should set up two separate and distinct call lines, one set up on the model for tips regarding business crimes and a separate one for tipsters wanting to inform federal level law enforcement regarding physical crimes like the shooter whether like the at the school or the ones where the Boston marathon or the Cal. shootings happened.

        An expansion, for sure, of a govt agency operation, but one that would make sense?

          I believe the problem is having a central call center for the entire country in the first place. In most cases the problem is local as is the solution to these problems. I had a conversation with a retired agent earlier in the week about this topic. Like most law enforcement agencies, the chiefs down at headquarters (7th floor Hoover Building for FBI) have to justify their positions by coming up with new ideas to solve old problems. If I understood him correctly, the PAL was one of those ideas hatched on the 7th floor.

          Back in the day, tips would come into the local FBI office where there were personnel on duty to take the calls. These were either agents on complaint duty or intelligence analysts.

          This was a good arrangement for the following reasons.

          These individuals knew how to ask the proper questions due to their training and experience in the field.

          These individuals knew to whom to direct the calls or information to as they were their coworkers.

          These individuals were local and knew the area they served and were invested in the community.

          While this system was not manned like a police department, there was always someone on duty to take the calls and could, if the call warranted immediate attention, either contact an on call agent or the local police agency to deal with it.

          Consolidation caused these tips to go to a remote call center, setup on a business model rather than a law enforcement one. This call center is manned by personnel with little or no field experience, who are under pressure to handle a specific number of calls and who have no connection to or understanding of the communities where these problems are located.

          IMHO – The call center arrangement in it’s present format needs to be changed back towards the individual FBI offices who are best situated to analysis the tips and handle them quicker and in an appropriate manner. If the FBI wants to regain the trust of the American people, they need to start thinking local, local, local again.

          Take care and stay safe

                Cruz’s inaction led directly to gay marriage being legalized:

                “In 2003, the year Cruz became Texas’s top government litigator, the state lost a crucial case as the U.S. Supreme Court decided that state laws banning homosexual sex as illegal sodomy were unconstitutional. The decision in Lawrence v. Texas paved the way for the court’s consideration of gay marriage. “The final victory for gay rights was foreshadowed when the court decided Lawrence v Texas,” predicted Walter Dellinger, a former U.S. assistant attorney general and solicitor general who’s argued numerous cases before the Supreme Court.

                Justice Antonin Scalia wrote at the time that the ruling dismantles “a distinction to be made between heterosexual and homosexual unions, insofar as formal recognition in marriage is concerned.”

                Cruz is making the gay marriage debate the cornerstone of a bid to rally conservatives to his 2016 presidential bid, but same-sex issues haven’t always been the top priority for a lawmaker who built his profile as a limited-government, Tea Party-aligned conservative.

                As Texas solicitor general when the Lawrence v. Texas case came before the Supreme Court, Cruz was “very much in the middle of all this drama,” said Mitchell Katine, who was local counsel to the two gay men at the center of the case, John Lawrence and Tyron Garner. The two had been dragged out of their bedroom by police and charged with “deviate sex.”

                Yet “Cruz remained absolutely silent,” Katine said. The case remained assigned instead to a Harris County district attorney.”

                “Ted Cruz was chosen to be the next junior senator in Texas by less than 4 percent of the eligible voting population by virtue of winning his low-turnout (under 12%) Republican primary runoff. This is a fact about almost all primary elections today that is often missed by media talking heads and politicos.”

    Just a reminder from Project Veritas investigation during 2016 election –

    Left will NEVER STOP. We need to become just as RUTHLESS.

    ‘In the second video of James O’Keefe’s new explosive series on the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign, Democratic party operatives tell us how to successfully commit voter fraud on a massive scale. Scott Foval, who has since been fired, admits that the Democrats have been rigging elections for fifty years.”

    “A new video investigation released Monday by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action shows how Democratic-aligned organizations used a tactic called ‘bird-dogging’ to incite violence and chaos at Trump rallies for media consumption. A key Clinton operative is captured on camera saying, “It doesn’t matter what the friggin’ legal and ethics people say, we need to win this motherf ***.” (Foval)

    “In the video, Democratic activists Robert Creamer and Scott Foval reveal their strategy to create a sense of “anarchy” in and around Donald Trump events over the course of the campaign. Foval tells an undercover operative: “One of the things we do is we stage very authentic grassroots protests right in their faces at their own events. Like, we infiltrate.”

    “I’m saying we have mentally ill people, that we pay to do shit, make no mistake,” says Foval in the video. “Over the last twenty years, I’ve paid off a few homeless guys to do some crazy stuff, and I’ve also taken them for dinner, and I’ve also made sure they had a hotel, and a shower. And I put them in a program. Like I’ve done that. But the reality is, a lot of people especially our union guys. A lot of our union guys…they’ll do whatever you want. They’re rock and roll. When I need to get something done in Arkansas, the first guy I call is the head of the AFL-CIO down there, because he will say, ‘What do you need?’ And I will say, I need a guy who will do this, this and this. And they find that guy. And that guy will be like, Hell yeah, let’s do it.”

    Spare me the 4D chess nonsense. Tell me what benefit there would be at this stage for Sessions to say such nonsense. He should be silent.

    Though I’ve got a serious craving for crow, I’m afraid the only ones being served will be the Sessions faithful.

    Just an aside, the US Curling team upset the world and won its first ever Gold medal in curling. Have no idea what the rules are but I like watching it.

      “Preserving a crime scene” is not a valid excuse for not allowing medical responders inside a mass shooting scene. Forensic evidence does not have to be preserved when it’s well known who the shooter is and what he has done. The gun should be the only thing roped off.
