On the same day of the horrific shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas that left 10 dead and 10 others wounded, Dana Loesch, a spokesman for the National Rifle Association, called out the mainstream Media for quote, “creating” mass shooters.
A student who survived the Texas school shooting on Friday has spoken out about the accused gunman, saying that he was 'emotionally bullied' by his classmates and coaches.
Dustin Severin, an 11th-grade student at Santa Fe High School, told KRIV that the suspected shooter, 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtiz, was constantly teased at school, but that he believed it never escalated into anything physical.
"I know he's picked on by coaches and other students. He didn't really talk to anyone," he told the station. "My friends from the football team told me that coaches said he smelled, like, right in front of his face. And other kids would look at him and laugh at him ... nothing like physical but they still emotionally bullied him."
"I never thought he would just snap and shoot up the school," Severin added. "He didn't seem like he was a hateful person."
Pro-Palestinian students at UCLA attacked a Lebanese Christian sharing the story of his grandparent’s survival of the Armenian genocide for “white supremacy.”
Police had to be called to a student event celebrating indigenous peoples Thursday evening, where members of Students for Justice in Palestine stormed the room and ripped down Armenian and Jewish flags.
Students Supporting Israel at UCLA hosted an event, “Indigenous Peoples Unite,” bringing together three speakers from the Armenian, Jewish, and Kurdish communities to talk about “these peoples’ efforts in battling controversy, oppression, and revisionism.”
One of the panelists, Dario Ouliguian, a second-year UCLA linguistics major who is vice president of the Lebanese club, shared his perspective about being a descendent of a survivor of the Armenian genocide. Ouliguian also heads the Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies Student Advisory Board.
Activists from the anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine interrupted Ouliguian’s story, with one student walking up to Ouliguian, ripping down the “mother f—king” Armenian flag, and throwing Ouliguian’s notes away.
Other anti-Israel activists then surrounded the room, armed with blow horns and whistles, yelling, “Palestine will be free!” When a female student tried to diffuse the situation, the group only got louder.
“Israel is a terrorist state!” they yelled, and then took down the flag of Israel.
When Ouliguian tried to return to the microphone to talk about Armenia, the group started screaming, “F—k white supremacy!”
Campus police were called to remove the protesters, who shut down the event and occupied the room for roughly 15 minutes.
When police began escorting them out, a white student yelled in front of several African-American police officers, “UCLA is on the side of racism! And the terrorist state of Israel!”
Students for Justice in Palestine organizers said they protested because the “event is false” because it did not feature a Palestinian speaker.
Britain is starting to overtake America in obesity rates, with the latest figures showing that more children in England are classed as obese at the age of 11 than in the US.
The proportion of US children aged 9 to 11 who are obese is 18.5%. The figure for children in their final year of primary school in England is at a record high of 20%.
Secondary-school children are also more obese. In the Health Survey for England, 23% of children aged 11 to 15 were obese in 2016. In America, 20.6% of children aged 12 to 15 were obese.
Simon Capewell, a professor in public health and policy at Liverpool University, said: 'Our worst fears have come to pass. We have completely adopted the American lifestyle with the inevitable consequences. The government needs to stand up for our children.
Rep. Devin Nunes: If any of that is true, if they ran a spy ring or an informant ring and they were paying people within the Trump campaign, if any of that is true that is an absolute red line. There’s not and honest person in this country who could believe that taxpayer dollars going to fund this ring and operate like this what is said in The New York Times that has quite a bit of detail on it, if any of that is true it’s a red line in this country. You can’t do this to political campaigns. According to them this was done in the spring before the counter-intelligence was even open. If that’s true, we need to know about it… If they paid someone it’s an absolute red line and this is over with!”
Judge Jeanine: I want you to remember that you heard it here first. Any “collector,” their name for an informant working on a national campaign, must have a sign off by the Attorney General. Here that would be liar Loretta Lynch. Lynch, herself, would of have to have approved an informant on that campaign. And if she didn’t then the FBI under James Comey was even more corrupt, going rogue in their attempt to destroy Donald Trump.
The mother of the student killed first during Friday's shooting at Santa Fe, says the suspect pursued her daughter.

Did Glenn Beck just jump on the Trump train? It’s really hard to believe Beck after he rolled his face in a bunch Cheetos to mock President Trump. This might be a case of “better late than never” but conservative radio host Glenn Beck announced during his Friday show that despite his opposition in the past, he would vote for President Donald Trump in 2020.
Beck began by predicting that Trump would win re-election, and then he explained why:
“Here’s why I’m predicting a 2020 win. When I saw yesterday how the press was all reporting the same damn story — that Donald Trump was calling MS-13 gang members (they left that out of the story) ‘animals’ — they were spinning it as if he was saying that about all immigrants. I had enough. I’ve had enough.”
Beck then took out a red Make America Great Again hat, saying, “Media, if you can get me, Glenn Beck, to do this … If you can drive me to the point where I say, ‘you know, I’ve had enough,’ I’ll vote for him in 2020. Gladly, I’ll vote for him in 2020. And not really even on his record, which we’ll talk about here in a second, is pretty damn amazing.”
Social media stars and Trump supporters Diamond and Silk take on the news of the day. Jesse Watters.
LeBron James dropped 27 points in Cleveland’s 116-86 blowout win over the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday night.
Shortly before the end of the first half, though, James may have, sort of, interacted with a Donald Trump supporter sitting in the front row at Quicken Loans Arena while he was checking into the game.
After checking in at the scorer’s table, James was about to make his way into the game when he went to toss his sweat towel off to the side and away from the court.
A man wearing a red Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” hat was sitting in the front row, right next to where James was standing. The man motioned for James to toss him the towel — which would be an incredible souvenir to take home from any game James plays in, let alone a playoff game.
James, though, did not toss the man the towel. Instead, he hesitated a moment while looking in the man’s direction and then tossed the towel off to the side.
Tapper to Mark Warner: Shootings Did Not Just Start in the Trump Admin.; They Have Been Going on for Decades and Democrats Did Nothing -- Mark Warner: "I think this epidemic seems to have gotten much worse in the last 10 years. There are plenty of things we could have pointed back to the '80s and 90s that perhaps in retrospect more should have been done. The fact is it is now 2018. We have these tragedies it feels like once a quarter. There are a few days with the exception of what happened after parkland and my hope and my appeal to everyone is let's do an all of the above. For those folks that I work with in the Congress, take a moment and let your position evolve. There are ways that we can put reasonable restraints without dramatically interfering with people's Second Amendment rights."

Police say they’ve captured a conniving 14-year-old who allegedly made off with a sight-impaired gentleman’s wallet — by claiming he was a cop who could help guide him into the subway near Penn Station.
The authorities had been searching for the nervy tyke since Monday, when he approached the 64-year-old victim at 34th Street and Eighth Avenue.
The kid only came up to the victim’s shoulders — but nevertheless “identified himself as a police officer and offered him assistance,” in getting into the subway, police said.
Subway surveillance shows the sight-impaired man waiting calmly as the kid brazenly unzips the man’s back pack and removes his wallet.
The practically Kindergarten cop then bolted, police said — quickly using his victim’s credit card to ring up $500 in merchandise at a nearby retail store.
