The scene was barely a few minutes old in Jacksonville, Florida before David Hogg was making statements about politicians and the NRA. Another activist took to Twitter to list all the lax gun laws in Florida. But none of it ended up being relevant. The Florida shooter was actually a Maryland shooter who was down for the weekend. He bought his guns in Maryland, which is the 7th strictest state regarding gun laws. Additionally, he had been admitted for mental issues twice, which would have prevented him from buying his guns if Maryland’s background check system had caught it. The shooter made several violent tweets before heading to the video game tournament, and those were forwarded to the FBI. The shooting took place in a gun free zone, which is where 98% of mass shootings happen. Once again, the facts make fools of gun control advocates.
Lanny Davis has now admitted that he was the unnamed source in the CNN story about Trump knowing ahead of time of the Trump Tower meeting. This has been an embarrassing episode of fake news for CNN akin to the Dan Rather memogate scandal. Davis, as an anonymous source, told CNN that his client Michael Cohen had knowledge that Trump knew about the infamous but not illegal Trump Tower meeting. CNN ran with the story in July based on the anonymous tip. Davis later made the claim publicly, before recanting and denying it publicly on CNN. However, CNN ignored their own story and continued to run with the claim based on their anonymous source. Now we know that source was Lanny Davis himself.
Americans don’t support impeachment. This is according to a new poll reported by left leaning Axios. According to the poll, 64% believe Michael Cohen when he says he paid off Stormy Daniels. But only 44% believe impeachment proceedings should begin. In our opinion though, this is a stupid poll. Trump said back in May that Cohen paid off Stormy Daniels and was reimbursed through his legal retainer, not out of campaign funds. There is nothing there to impeach Trump for. If anything, it shows that half of Americans are not keeping up with this mess.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is back in hot water after her tweet that #abolishICE didn’t really mean #abolishICE. She admitted she actually supports deportations. It turns out “abolish” is simply the new “occupy” or “punch a nazi”. It doesn’t mean anything, it’s just a dog whistle to her crazy supporters to show up armed and masked and destroy private property.
But perhaps even worse, Ocasio-Cortez said that #abolishICE meant we need ICE to stop “sexually assaulting women with impunity”. I would love to see her meet with all 20,000 ICE employees in front of their families and say that to their faces.
