Authorities this weekend announced they had foiled three potential mass shootings after arresting three men in different states who expressed interest in or threatened to carry them out. All three cases were brought to authorities' attention thanks to tips from the public. Here's what we know about them. In Connecticut, 22-year-old Brandon Wagshol was arrested after authorities said he had expressed interest in committing a mass shooting on Facebook, according to a statement from the FBI and the Norwalk Police Department.

Great job! Just goes to show that “red flag laws” are unnecessary.

Right, #1. We may not like the notion of Red Flags, but when they’re waved in our faces, we might as well pay attention. MAGA

Just find the real nut jobs. People know who they are. This proves if law enforcement pays attention they can prevent many of these shootings. It seems a lot of the past shooters were "on the FBI's radar" and nothing was done.

They were slow to grasp that it's the crazy factor, not the gun. Muslims did not like being profiled at airports after 9/11/01 but look how many lives that saved.

Wagshol has an interesting Facebook page, and it is old enough to be legit.

One has to believe that these nut jobs are being driven by the Left and the MSM hatred of Trump. That hatred gives them cover to perpetrate evil. Schumer and Pelosi could put a stop to this, but they are more interested in keeping the populace divided, thinking that it’s their way back into power. I wish that ALL of the news outlets would stop reporting what is said on CNN and PMSNBC. There is where you find the real nut jobs. Reporting on what they say should be ignored.

Living in the video make-believe world allows to totally divorce yourself from real people and society as a whole. People become targets, not friends, family or community. Thankfully, at least so far, the young people making this schizoid break with reality are few, and they are prone to telegraph their moves through Social Media.

This is what happens when scores arent kept and children are give participation awards. This is what happens when children are coddled and protected from reality and gaving their feelings hurt. Children arent taught the sticks and stones rhyme, instead we implement anti bullying rules. We don't let boys be boys, we medicate them. They are all taught tge greatest lie of all..... they are all equal and they should expect fair and equal outcomes. We've raised a generation of snowflakes incapable of dealing with rejection, the inability to manage conflict and who's every feeling is legitimate. Liberalism is ultimately at fault. Liberals always fail to understand or take into consideration that we are all, deep down, animals. Driven by self preservation.

CNN Ponders Trump 2020:
'What Is the Magic That He Doles Out?'

Rolling Stone magazine recently published an article titled "Trump 2020: Be Very Afraid," which carries the following subtitle: "America is the first country to ever elect a Mad King, and the way things are going, we may be dumb enough to do it twice." The author, Matt Taibbi, sat down with CNN's "New Day" on Tuesday morning. Among other things, Taibbi said the enthusiasm at Trump's campaign events this year is even greater than it was in 2016, and reporters who cover Trump are not explaining that. "What is the magic that he doles out?" CNN's Alisyn Camerota, not a Trump fan, asked Taibbi:

Miley Cyrus was reportedly spotted "basically having sex" inside a California club on Friday with Kaitlynn Carter — not long after photos of the two getting cozy during an Italian getaway surfaced. Cyrus, 26, and Carter, 30, were getting hot and heavy at Soho House in West Hollywood, Page Six reported, citing a source who claimed the two "couldn't keep their hands off each other." "They were obsessed with each other," the witness said. "They were kissing and making out everywhere. In the bathroom, at the bar, in the middle of the floor. They were basically having sex. There’s no question they’re together.”

Democrats were overwhelmingly more likely to appear on certain cable news networks than Republicans, a new study found. CNN and MSNBC are seven times more likely to host Democratic members of Congress than Republican members, according to a study published Monday by the Media Research Center. Analysts from MRC spent 540 hours watching programming from the two networks while Congress was in session, and found that the networks hosted a combined 284 Democratic members of congress compared to just 40 Republican members of Congress.

In the freest nation in the world, our system of government and our very liberty depend on free and fair elections. Whether they’re selecting a mayor or the president of the United States, every American must be able to trust the process, or the democratic system itself breaks down. When someone commits voter fraud, the process is no longer fair, everyone’s vote gets diluted, and in some cases, election results are changed. Contrary to the claims of many on the left, voter fraud is a very real problem. As the Supreme Court noted when it upheld Indiana’s voter ID law, flagrant examples of voter fraud have been documented throughout this nation’s history.

I wrote today about the newly fashionable insistence on the Left that America was founded on racism and slavery: Rather than enhancing the moral standing of slavery, the Founding tended to undermine it. “The Revolution suddenly and effectively ended the cultural climate that had allowed black slavery, as well as other forms of bondage and unfreedom, to exist throughout the colonial period without serious challenge,” the historian Gordon Wood writes. In his view, it set in motion the “ideological and social forces” that eventually led to the Civil War. COMMENTS In the broadest gauge, it’s a mistake to treat the United States as an outlier in terms of its racial attitudes,

If Russian collusion has been the opiate of the Trump-hating masses for more than two years, the New York Times was one of its biggest suppliers. Since late 2016, desperate to drown their sorrows over Donald Trump’s shocking win, political junkies on the Left and NeverTrump Right eased their inner pain with a daily collusion fix injected courtesy of the Gray Lady. With one click on the front page or opinion section, Times’ readers could satisfy their anti-Trump addiction while making them feel, if only for a few fleeting moments, powerful and in control. Pain would give way to rage, then a false sense of hope.

Accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein signed a will just two days before he died by suicide in a New York jail, new court records show, leaving behind an estate valued at more than $577 million, including more than $56 million in cash. The 66-year-old's death was ruled a suicide by hanging last week by New York's chief medical examiner. The will was filed last week with court officials in the U.S. Virgin Islands and listed no details of beneficiaries, according to the New York Post. Court papers filed in St. Thomas reveal that the former hedge-fund manager was worth about $18 million more than what he stated in court papers

Salt Lake City — U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney said Monday that he believes climate change is happening and human activity is a significant contributor. During a speech at the conservative Sutherland Institute in Salt Lake City, the senator acknowledged that the position is rare among his fellow Republicans, but one that younger people seem to respond to more strongly than older conservatives.(Snip) The former GOP presidential nominee has acknowledged climate change before, and said during his 2018 campaign for U.S. Senate in Utah that “climate realities” will make wildfires more common and destructive in the West.

Nevertheless, on Monday FNC chief political anchor Bret Baier tried to provide one by arguing that, no, the 22-year-old network hasn’t changed and is the same now as it’s always been. He made the remarks in response to recent criticism from President Donald Trump, who’s taken issue with FNC’s hiring decisions, its polling data and its seemingly left-wing “journalists.” Listen:

This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region, and the only democracy in the Middle East.

However, the test only showed that Warren is somewhere between 1/64 and 1/1,024th Native American, and led to ire among Native Americans who pointed out that Warren can make no claim to tribal citizenship based on a DNA test.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has signed a law allowing Illinois to take its own action to slow climate change. The Democrat approved legislation this week that repeals the Kyoto Protocol Act of 1998. It limited state action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S. withdrew from Kyoto in 2001. But Illinois had put it into state law so it was bound by rules the federal government no longer intended to follow. Naperville Democratic Sen. Laura Ellman says it sends a message that "Illinois is ready to get serious about climate change." The law she and Evanston Democratic Rep. Robyn Gabel sponsored takes effect Jan. 1.
