    Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel needs to be fired. Apparently Florida lawmakers are pushing a petition to the state governor to see that it happens, and it should.

    The beleaguered sheriff blamed his own men for their cowardice, but he represents those men and should take responsibility. He should have hired red pilled men instead of soy boys. Instead of attacking the shooter, Israel attacked the NRA and gun owners. He was also a big supporter of Hillary Clinton, which makes him by default a supporter of the shadow government. The county’s own Debbie Wassermann Schulz is also part of the same corrupt cabal that want us to turn in our guns.

    The do-nothing FBI also shares blame. Or did they allow it to happen to further the Shadow Government’s determination to abolish our Second Amendment? It’s no wonder conspiracy theories abound.

    The CIA/CNN legacy media never let a tragedy go to waste.

    We’re hearing their usual bleat for more gun control, or they want them confiscated outright. Instead, many people are instead buying more guns. Schools are targets and therefore need to be hardened. This can be achieved by allowing ‘concealed carry’ among willing and trained teachers as well as adding an armed guard in each school.

The Olympic flame [traveled] to 34 cities in 27 countries en route to the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.”

    Just saw Mollie Hemmingway on Tucker Carlson talking about the Dossier, FISA Abuse etc… and she clearly does not know the timeline of events. She has it all mixed up and thinks the dossier didn’t get to the FBI until McCain gave it to Comey.

    Days go by and it seems we don’t even have a republican Congress. It would be nice if the administrations picks would be confirmed by mid-terms and with the pace of judges there will still be dozens and dozens more not confirmed by then…This is something I hope the President will call out. Even make a scene on Capitol Hill….

      There are vacancies all through this administration because McConnell won’t push the confirmations through. They will still be working on them when President Trump hands over the keys to the WH in 2025!

        Yep. It would be simple enough to make the thirty hour of debate rule ten hours or get rid of it. Mitch needs to be called out and it does become obvious he doesn’t care enough or doesn’t want these people…I don’t buy the tradition garbage at this point…it’s a tradition a President has his people by now…The President needs to call this out…

      Always wonder why no one asked about Page’s prior stint with FBI or even CIA in their counter-intelligence functions. It appears there was an understanding what questions not to ask Page in interviews.

      An update from the Va. Citizens Defense League (Virginia’s only pro-gun group)

      Since the VA-ALERT item on an apparent attack on gun-rights leaders went out last Tuesday, information has been coming in that confirms my belief that many leaders were indeed solicited to be part of the fake interview.

      In that alert I alluded to finding the name of another “mark” that I recognized as a national firearms training figure.

      That name was Rob Pincus. Rob contacted me and we talked about his experience the night the alert went out. Rob received the same email I received and was flown to Pennsylvania, as was Utah resident Janalee Tobias, who is the founder and president of Women Against Gun Control.

      Janalee, as well as the West Virginia Citizens Defense League, Florida Carry, AmmoLand, and a gun dealer in Virginia also received the same email as I received. All but Janalee declined the invitation or had their travel arrangements in such disarray that the interview never happened.

      Rob posted his experience on the VCDL Facebook page:

      Basically because First Freedom Television couldn’t make travel arrangements to save their life, he ended up not making it to the interview (YES!) and flew back home in frustration. Rob also had some red flags raised in his interactions with the First Freedom Television staff and grew suspicious of them. He thought this was either some kind of set up or perhaps just some terribly misguided people.

      In an interesting twist, both Janalee and Rob ended up in the same limousine by accident! When the driver called ahead to First Freedom Television and told them he had TWO of their interviewees in his car, the First Freedom Television representative panicked and ordered the limo driver to take Rob back, as there was no place for him to wait for his interview while Janalee did her interview. Knowing now what the fake-interview crew wanted to do, I can see why they panicked.

      There may have been more people who were interviewed, we will probably find out in the near future as the word continues to spread across the country.

      Janalee is a sweet lady that was lied to over and over as they tricked her into making the fake training film that was supposed to be shown “only in Israel.” She was terribly uncomfortable during the filming and once it was over her feelings of everything being horribly wrong overwhelmed her and she told the staff that she rescinded her consent to use any material with her in it. Janalee, who teaches Eddie Eagle and refers to herself as the “cool aid” mom because she deals with children all the time, was mortified at the complete and irresponsible handling of firearms that would be shown to children in the “training film.” (BTW, the interviewer assured her every step of the way that everything she was doing had been approved by psychologists in Israel and that Benjamin Netanyahu, who appeared in what turned out to be a fake news report, wanted this film made. They told me the same lies.) Staff gave her the run around saying the producer (T.J.) would have to call her about rescinding her consent. He never called, of course.


      The First Freedom Television Facebook page seems to have disappeared, but the website is still there.

      It looks like there may be another angle to the film. Here is an article about a Hollywood couple that was sent an email almost exactly like the one that I and others received. The article talks about the extreme psychological manipulations and lies used to get the couple to do or say things they would normally never do or say. Rob Pincus found the article:




      Sacha Baron Cohen pranks Gretchen and Slade
      By Chelsea Hirsch

      Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” stars Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley are among Sacha Baron Cohen‘s latest prank victims.

      “We got punked so bad by Sacha Baron Cohen,” Rossi told Page Six this week. “I don’t know, but we think it’s for maybe, possibly his new movie. We were reached out to by this production company that basically said … we’re doing this series for Israel that’s all about … security and protecting yourself as an American celebrity.”

      Smiley, 44, added that the company pitched them by addressing “what challenges you go through as a public figure” by “[bringing] in an Israeli Mossad agent to teach you some self-defense moves and check the security of your home.” The couple vetted the company and confirmed a two-hour filming time, but decided to do it at a rental property instead of at their own home.

      “The second we walk through the door there’s two Mossad agents holding guns to each other’s heads,” Rossi said, describing how she was immediately terrified. “They punked us for four-and-a-half hours! You would not believe the stuff they were asking us to do — the weirdest, creepiest, funniest stuff, but at the time it wasn’t funny. We literally thought they were going to kill Slade!”

      Rossi, 40, said they took part in the training because she actually wanted to know what to do if someone broke into her home, and didn’t question the strange behavior at first. But she finally hit her breaking point when she was asked, “When Slade is dead, how soon do you start dating?” Meanwhile, Smiley had enough when Cohen brought out zip ties as part of his “training.”

      Rossi said she had no idea they were talking to Cohen because he had a well-designed unibrow and face prosthetics. Cohen never broke character, and his staff maintained their composure as well, she said.

      “I was freaked out. I was crying — I was hysterical coming home,” she said of what happened after she left. “I’m sure they were laughing their asses off!”

      They tried to call the production company afterward, but “everyone went dark” and they couldn’t reach anyone.

      “For two days we had no idea that this had really happened,” Smiley said. “We went to a magazine photoshoot and Tito Ortiz was on the shoot. And we were talking about things, and he was like, ‘F–k dude, I think I was punked by Sacha Cohen.’ I go, ‘What do you mean?’ … and he started describing exactly what happened to us.”

      “He needs to win an Oscar for his performance,” she laughed. “Incredible!”

      It was recently reported that Cohen, 46, paid O.J. Simpson more than $20,000 to appear in his next movie. Cohen is known for his wild getups and pranks in flicks like “Borat” and “Brüno.”

      Cohen’s rep didn’t get back to us.


      The First Freedom Television Facebook page was asking for people to participate in self-defense techniques:

      “We are looking for everyday people who are interested in learning some new techniques to help keep themselves and their communities safe from all types of threats – while making some money and having a lot of fun.

      “We prefer participants who have had no previous military or self-defense training, and you don’t need more than average physical ability. The goal of this project is to show how everyday people can use cutting edge self-defense techniques to make a positive impact in their communities.”

    I hadnt seen it posted anywhere,
    But O’s super secret speech was recorded and released. He is flat out crazy. But he needs to answer for everything he has done.
    Im not sure if you were to hose the swamp scum off of him thete would be anything left. Then again Im ok with that too.

    Gem quotes:
    “4) Diversity isn’t about “charity or political correctness, it’s just common sense.” And it’s why his White House was scandal-free, according to the president.

    Obama didn’t comment on the #MeToo movement specifically, but he did stress that it should be a top priority for companies to make women feel safe and respected at work, give them equal pay for equal work, and make an effort to actually listen to what they are saying. If women are afraid to speak up, or are talked over by men, a good boss should call on them and ask their opinions.

    “In today’s culture, if you are not deliberately doing that, you are going to fall behind, and someone is going to beat you,” he said.

    Obama said that this was the approach he took while in office, and it helped get him through eight years without a major scandal.

    “We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” he said. The former president admitted that his team made mistakes, but no massive screw-ups. He then said, “I know that seems like a low bar,” at which point the audience burst into laughter. “Generally speaking, you didn’t hear about a lot of drama inside our White House,” he said. This was the closest Obama came to critiquing the new administration.

    5) Obama thinks the stereotype about lazy government employees is wrong.

    The idea that people in the private sector work harder than the feds is a misperception, said Obama.

    “At least at the top levels of the federal government, people work harder than in the private sector,” he Obama. “When I came out of the White House, everything looked like it was in slow motion. I felt like I was Neo in The Matrix. Our folks were putting in 80-hour work weeks and barely getting vacations and under unimaginable pressure.”

    The top US negotiator with North Korea is planning to retire this week, the State Department has revealed, in the midst of a tense diplomatic standoff between the two nations. Joseph Yun says his decision is personal in nature.

    Yun, a diplomat for over 30 years, is currently serving as the Special Representative for North Korea Policy and as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Korea and Japan. He has announced he will be retiring from both posts on Friday. The US State Department says his reasons are personal, which Yun himself has reiterated to several American media outlets.
