Original Article

Parkland shooting survivor-turned-gun control activist David Hogg said Tuesday that he’s been the target of seven assassination attempts since the mass shooting at his high school last year thrust him and his classmates to the forefront of the gun debate. “In the past year, there have been seven assassination attempts,” Mr. Hogg, 19, told The Washington Post. “Honestly, I realize that it’s horrible that I have to live through this, and it is traumatizing. “But you eventually become desensitized to it,” he continued. “Like, oh, your house got SWAT-ted. You got a call from the police saying someone said that everyone in your family had been killed

Seriously? No one on the right cares about you, little boy. And if that is your description of what an assassination attempt is, well I know for a fact you're lying. Getting phone calls is not an attempt...

“Assassinate” is a word typically associated with a prominent person. Lincoln was assassinated. There was an attempt to assassinate Ronald Reagan. Hogg is simply delusional. Oh, and I call BS as I doubt there were any attempts on his life because a.) pro-second amendment people are usually sane b.) he’s a legend in his own mind c.) he’d have been out blabbing all over the media each time.

You did it to yourself. You rushed to put your ugly face in the public and made all kinds of threats. The other victims of the tragedy quietly mourned their loses and retained their dignity. You wanted fame and fortune and got it. Not so much fun is it! Go crawl back in that hole you crawled out of. That way no one can find you and hurt you. By the way, we had all forgotten about you. Maybe that is why you are whining now.

The Call For Reparations Isn’t

What do we mean by reparations? Writing recently in the Washington Post, Sheryll Cashin, a law professor at Georgetown University, argues that “reparations should repair what white supremacy still breaks. Atoning for the legacy of chattel slavery is simply not enough.” That is, reparations must be broad enough to encompass the many crimes and injustices perpetrated against black Americans throughout our history, from slavery to Jim Crow to mass incarceration. The effects of these injustices, says Cashin, are “direct and measurable” among slavery’s descendants: wage gaps, educational disparities, homeownership and property values, incarceration rates, health outcomes. She is of course right. There is no question that black Americans

Volodymyr Zhukovskyy is what happens when you stop enforcing all the laws, for all the people. If you tell one group of individuals that, for whatever reason, there are certain laws they no longer have to abide by, it’s not long before everybody else begins to believe that there’s no reason they should be held accountable for any crimes they commit either. Here’s the deal for any society: either all the laws have to be enforced for everybody, across the board, or pretty soon they’re not going to be enforced for anybody. The only alternative is to start repealing all the laws that are apparently optional for some people,

Section 1325! Section 1325! For a few crucial minutes in the middle of the first Democratic presidential debate, Julián Castro (polling average: 0.8 percent) took over the proceedings by challenging his fellow candidates to endorse the repeal of Section 1325 of the Immigration and Naturalization Act. What’s it about? Don’t ask. He yelled at Beto O’Rourke about it and expressed his deep disappointment that O’Rourke wasn’t joining him in supporting the repeal of Section 1325. O’Rourke is at 3.3 percent in the Real Clear Politics polling average, so you can see why Castro thought it was so important to nail him

News flash: There’s a crisis at the border. This was discovered again over the past few days when immigration attorneys talked to reporters about appalling conditions at a Border Patrol facility detaining migrant minors in Clint, Texas. According to the lawyers, many of the kids had to sleep on the concrete floor, failed to get proper adult supervision, and didn’t routinely take showers or brush their teeth. The details were hard to read. Assuming the account was accurate, one wonders how we could treat anyone this way, let alone children?

The walkout began at 1:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, days after employees learned that Wayfair planned to sell $200,000 worth of furniture to BCFS, a nonprofit contractor that operates immigration detention facilities at the southern U.S. border. Wayfair executives praised the more than 500 employees who called for the company to sever business ties with immigration contractors,

NBC and MSNBC embraced Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts in the first debate of Democratic presidential candidates Wednesday night, treating her like the star of the show. The debate led off with Warren, who had a huge popularity advantage from the start. Warren – who Trump dubbed “Pocahontas” because of her phony claim of Native American heritage – was the only Democrat on stage who had mustered double digits in recent polling. Moderators let her dominate the early part of the debate, when most people were likely watching. NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie started it off sounding more like Warren’s press secretary. “You have many plans – free college, free child care,

Congress is debating emergency humanitarian aid to care for migrants on the U.S.-Mexico border. The need is obvious. With virtually no barrier to stop them, thousands of migrants are crossing illegally into the United States every day. More than a million will come this year. U.S. law prevents border officials from quickly returning them. While they are being processed, some of the migrants, including children, are being kept temporarily in terrible conditions. American officials have an obligation to take care of them before those with no valid claim to be in the United States are returned to their home countries. Capitol Hill Democrats are reportedly torn about an emergency aid measure.

Megan Rapinoe is the co-captain of the U.S. women’s national soccer team and a rabid hater of President Trump. (SnipToday, President Trump brilliantly responded to Ms. Rapinoe. First, by calling out her arrogance in declaring victory before she even played the World Cup matches; and secondly, by inviting the entire team to the White House “win or lose”. The pressure is now upon Ms. Rapinoe. That pressure overlays a preexisting, unstable and tenuous psychological condition related to her tribal self-identification and commercial aspirations. This dynamic is a recipe for implosion. It will not end well for her.

Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the Court’s opinion, portions of which were unanimous. “It is rare to review a record as extensive as the one before us when evaluating informal agency action — and it should be,” Roberts wrote. “But having done so for the sufficient reasons we have explained, we cannot ignore the disconnect between the decision made and the explanation given.

While many of his Republican colleagues have remained silent on the issue, or come out in support of the president, Romney claimed the accusation placed by Jean Carroll, who previously said “most people think of rape as being sexy,” is a “serious” allegation, according to CNN. “It’s a very serious allegation,” Romney said. “I hope that it is fully evaluated.
