A 458-page report by the commission established to investigate last year’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL was released last night, according to the Sun-Sentinel. The panel unanimously approved the report, which details the events that transpired at MSD on the day of the shooting, and recommends controversial measures to combat future attacks, including arming teachers. The report carries many other recommendations, including allowing school districts to increase taxes in order to raise money for school security, and requiring mental health providers to notify authorities if a patient threatens anyone. The report also sharply criticizes law enforcement officials who failed to stop the attack. “There needs to be a sense of urgency,” Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, chairman of the commission, told the Sun-Sentinel. “And people need to understand that there’s an expectation and a rightful expectation on the part … [Read more...] about Parkland Commission Recommends Very Dumb Idea of Arming Teachers
An Ohio doctor, Lara Kollab, was fired from her residency at the Cleveland Clinic after it was discovered that she posted extremely anti-Semitic comments online, including threats to give Jewish people “the wrong meds,” according to NBC. Kollab has deleted all of her social media, but Canary Mission, a pro-Israel site that tracks anti-Semitism, has archived many of her posts as screenshots. From NBC: According to the Canary Mission, Kollab’s posts called for violence against Jews, defended Hamas, trivialized the Holocaust and repeatedly compared Israel to Nazi Germany. The group saved dozens of similar posts from 2011-2017. In one now-deleted tweet from 2012, Kollab said, “ill purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds...” Yahood is an Arabic term for Jewish people. Other tweets made reference to “Jewish dogs” and said in Arabic, “Allah will take the Jews.” “In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our … [Read more...] about Anti-Semitic Ohio Doctor Fired for Tweets Including Threats to Give Jews ‘The Wrong Meds’
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is not shook at all, not one bit. Cuomo was interviewed Wednesday on the public radio show The Capitol Connection, with the conversation focusing on the upcoming legislative session, which will see an influx of Democrats in the state legislature. Given that a number of these incoming candidates ran on actually progressive, anti-corruption platforms, Cuomo, a grifter of the highest degree, is understandably feeling a bit shaky about their arrival. More to the point, he’s already getting all sweaty about the i-word. According to the New York Daily News, Cuomo downplayed the possibility of future Assembly-helmed investigations into his administration when speaking with the radio hosts. Doing his best impression of President Donald Trump, Cuomo—a slimy politician who has seen a cadre of former advisors and cabinet members get fired or shipped off to prison for bribes—pathetically tried to turn the investigation angle on its head. He started … [Read more...] about Andrew Cuomo Is Not Worried at All About Future Investigations, Why Do You Ask?

You don’t have to give the bad man things. Just make him wait long enough and he’ll start telling his fans that he got them. He’s already telling people that “Mexico is paying for the wall,” via an imaginary funding mechanism that exists solely in the mind of our nation’s foremost economist, the guy with the gold toilet. He’s already telling people that “Much of the Wall has already been fully renovated or built,” in the same sense that “Much” of your child’s homework has “already” been “basically done” because they gave it some thought, while smoking weed. He is speaking here to his “base,” a word that means “the 30% or so of people who will believe anything he says no matter what.” The government is currently shut down because he can’t get money to build his stupid wall. There is no sign that he will get money to build his stupid wall. So what will happen? … [Read more...] about He’s Just Gonna Say the Wall Is Done
