If you are curious just what the cartoons that Palestinian children watch look like, look at this video of them being encouraged to commit acts of terrorism against Israelis, and more specifically Jews around the world.
In the Italian city of Turin, Antifa terrorists attempted to stage a massive protests against Italian citizens protesting the massive influx of Muslim and African migrants.
When the Antifa terrorist decided to start throwing rocks, in violently attacking the protesters the Italian police quickly made mince meat of the young terrorists.
CNN political commentator Van Jones suggested Thursday that armed teachers would be more likely to use guns against African-American and Latino students than their white classmates.
Van Jones made the comment on "CNN Tonight" during a discussion with fellow guest Ken Cuccinelli, a former Virginia attorney general, and host Don Lemon. The three were debating President Donald Trump's idea of arming teachers with guns to help bolster school security and prevent shootings.
Cuccinelli mentioned Washington, D.C.'s strict gun laws and sarcastically mentioned the level of gun crime in the nation's capital before Jones, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, suggested students of color would be more likely to have guns used against them if teachers were armed.
Lemon then said the only reason last week's mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, occurred was because of the shooter's access to guns, brushing aside the failure of school resource officer Scot Peterson to engage the shooter.
"In Washington, D.C., you have some of the most restrictive gun laws in America, and it's certainly a land of peace and harmony. All the people doing the killing are illegally obtaining the guns," Cuccinelli said. "The notion that that isn't going to happen isn't the solution—"
"That's part of the problem, then," Lemon interjected. "That's part of the problem."
"And you brush aside the idea that other responsible people who have shown a commitment to these children might be willing to undertake that responsibility," Cuccinelli said.
"Most of the people who have guns are responsible and use them responsibly. That is not the issue, and you're conflating two different issues," Lemon said. "That's not the issue. But, do you need a military-grade weapon on the streets of the United States, anyone who is not a police officer or who is trained or licensed to use it? No, we don't need that."
"Why do we need to have that silly argument and pretend that it's other than our access to guns?" Lemon asked.
"Well, if it's a silly argument, then it's not an argument at all," Cuccinelli responded.
"Ken makes a good point in talking about, listen, let's have an open mind, and let's have a full conversation. And I am actually glad that—" Jones said.
"An open mind, though, Van, doesn't mean being stupid. Come on, let's be honest," Lemon interjected.
Cuccinelli laughed in apparent disbelief at Lemon's remark.
Jones then gave his opinion about allowing teachers to have firearms in their classrooms, arguing that race would play a role in how teachers may use the weapons.
"The positives are maybe somebody would use that gun well and stop an intruder. There are some real negatives as well," Jones said. "African-American and Latino kids already get treated fairly badly in schools as it is. They're more likely to be seen as a threat. They're more likely to be expelled, more likely to be suspended for the exact same behavior. Videotape the exact same behavior: ‘This kid is a threat; this kid is a class clown if they're white.'"
"So there is a concern that I think parents have, and you've heard now African-American educators coming out saying, ‘If you just start passing out guns in schools as they are, given some of the bias that's there, you might wind up having those guns used against students in ways that are not good,'" Jones said.
National Rifle Association (NRA) chairman Wayne LaPierre said that Democrats like Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) don’t want gun control reform, but rather to eradicate individual freedoms. He made the remarks during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Thursday.
LaPierre’s speech at CPAC marked the first public comments he’s made since the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
“Opportunists wasted not one second to exploit tragedy for political gain. The break-back speed of calls for more gun control laws, and the breathless national media eager to smear the NRA,” LaPierre said describing the hours after the shooting.
“Think about that: in the midst of genuine grief and a very understandable passion, as millions of Americans searched for meaningful solutions, what do we find?” LaPierre asked. “Chris Murphy, Nancy Pelosi, and more, cheered on by the national media, eager to blame the NRA and call for even more government control.”
“They hate the NRA. They hate the Second Amendment. They hate individual freedom. In the rush of calls for more government, they’ve also revealed their true selves. The elites don’t care, not one wit, about America’s school system and schoolchildren,” LaPierre continued. “If they truly cared, what they would do is they would protect them. For them, it’s not a safety issue. It’s a political issue.”
“Their goal is to eliminate the Second Amendment and our firearms freedoms, so they can eradicate all individual freedoms. What they want are more restrictions on the law-abiding. Think about that: their solution is to make you, all of you, less free,” LaPierre added.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that National Rifle Association (NRA) Chairman Wayne LaPierre was responsible for mass shootings during a press conference on Thursday.
LaPierre had attacked de Blasio and other notable Democratic leaders earlier in the day at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for what LaPierre saw as a coordinated attempt to make their socialist agenda more palatable.
“This morning at the CPAC convention, Wayne LaPierre, the head of the NRA, spoke. And he attacked me by name, and he attacked a group of other Democratic leaders. And let me say at the outset: he can attack me all day long, I’m not worried about that,” De Blasio said. “My answer to Wayne LaPierre is you are one of the people responsible for this massacre and all the massacres before.”
De Blasio then accused the NRA of making guns so widely available in America that a terrorist could purchase a gun if they wanted to.
“I want to separate that from the membership, because surveys of the NRA membership have shown they are open to sane gun safety legislation,” de Blasio explained.
CNN political commentator Van Jones said Thursday that young gun-control advocates see the National Rifle Association as an enemy on the level of the Ku Klux Klan.
Jones said the NRA's role in the debate over gun policy has been destructive overall, arguing that lawmakers are afraid to take steps to solve gun violence because the group may criticize them. Jones admitted, however, that he does not know what steps the government could take to make any progress.
"We haven't had the kind of innovation, experimentation, trying of things—I don't know of any of the things being proposed would make any difference at all yet," Jones said. "But we should know more than we know right now. We should have been able to try things and we haven't been able to."
Referring to the activists fighting for gun control in the wake of mass shootings, Jones said "a whole generation of young people" simply see the NRA as an enemy.
"You have a whole generation of young people who essentially see the NRA as their enemy," Jones said. "To them the NRA is like the KKK; it's just some hostile force that is against them, that's risking their lives."
Jones' comments come as students have taken a leading role in the gun-control fight following last week's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Students have responded to the shooting in different ways, but media coverage has focused on the students calling for gun control.
Jones added that the students' fight for gun control is a fight "for their right to survive."
"These kids, they're not fighting for their future—they're fighting for their right to survive, to have a future," he said. "They do not see the NRA as a friend in that fight."
The NRA has come under fierce criticism from gun-control advocates, who see the organization as the principal opponent to new legislation. President Donald Trump said Thursday that he expects the NRA to work with lawmakers to toughen up gun laws.
A mobster took a smirking selfie with a tied-up tribal man who died shortly after after being beaten with sticks.
The picture was snapped in the village of Kottathara in the southern Indian state of Kerala and shows a frail-looking man tied up and being interrogated.
A video also shows the tied-up man being interrogated by a mob, who accuse him of stealing food.
The 30-year-old, named as A. Madhu, was a member of local tribal group the Adivasi, and was reported to have been beaten up by a mob who used sticks to thrash him.
Police say a group of citizens handed Madhu over to a patrol, who started to drive him to a police station as he was wanted for some petty thefts .
But when Madhu started to vomit in the police car so they changed direction and headed for the nearest hospital.
It is reported he was declared dead on arrival.
An unnamed police officer told local media: "Madhu has previously been accused of robbing shops and we were trying to nab him for quite some time. He has three cases registered against him.
"The locals had got CCTV visuals of Madhu stealing from a shop. A few locals spotted him in the hills, tied him up and brought him to the town. Then they informed us and we reached the spot to take him into custody."
He confirmed Madhu had become unwell in the police vehicle and added: "We then took him to the hospital. By the time we reached there, he had lost consciousness. The doctors then declared him dead."
Another police officer, an unnamed deputy superintendent, confirmed that Madhu had been beaten up, but claimed it was not proven that his death was a result of the attack.
He said: "The people in the mob were all locals of Agali, not from outside.
"But we can't conclude that the death was caused by that. We can confirm the cause of death only after getting the postmortem report.
"He used to wander around and lived in the forest and caves. During the night he would steal rice from provision stores in the area. There is a theft case against him at Agali police station.
"On Wednesday, he stole rice from a store at Kalkkanda. On Thursday night, the mob went to the forest and beat him up."
There were some reports that Madhu suffered from a mental illness.
A former worker at a government-run body called the Attappadi Hills Area Development Society said the death was an example of how Indians had treated tribal people abominably.
Usha Punathil said: "After stealing the land and everything the Adivasis owned, and making legislation for all that, now an Adivasi is beaten to death.
"He had nowhere to go when he was attacked. An Adivasi is killed accused of stealing food, then how should we who have stolen everything from them be killed?"
In the Western world some of the liberal media loves to act as if Muslim women are not forced to wear those oppressive outfits. But this is what happens in Iran if you are not wearing it and decide to take it off and protest.
Still think it's a choice?
One high schooler has come up with a device to prevent active shooters from getting inside classrooms – and to keep students safe.
He calls it the "JustinKase." It's a product made of steel that latches to a door frame to bar entry.
“Unlike other products, JustinKase does not allow a door to open even a crack which means students & staff can remain safe while emergency personnel race to the scene,” creator Justin Rivard, a student at Somerset High School in Wisconsin, explains on his website.
Rivard came up with the idea for the safety product, which he sells online for $95, two years ago – when he was just 15. He spent months refining it.
A disturbing video was just released from the Afrin, Syria region that Turkey is currently attempting to invade. The video shows what is said to be Turkish back terrorist groups operating in the region that are systematically executing Kurdish farmers in an attempt to push Kurdish people back from the Turkish border.
Accuracy in Media published a report and transcript at the time.
A King Assist to Clinton
The ineptness of the Bush campaign doesn’t minimize or excuse the role played by the media in defeating Bush. Despite the flaws in the campaign, a week before the election, the polls that had shown Bush trailing badly began to change. The CNN/USA Today tracking poll revived Republican hopes when it showed Clinton leading Bush by only two points on October 29.
That same day Lawrence Walsh, the independent counsel, obtained a new indictment of former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, releasing the texts of 15 notes written by Weinberger. One dated January 7, 1986 was about a meeting of President Reagan and his top aides at which a plan to sell 4,000 TOW missiles to Iran in exchange for five hostages was discussed. Weinberger wrote that he and George Shultz opposed the plan and that Bush was one of four who favored it, but it is not clear from the note that Bush attended the meeting. Bush has long insisted that he didn’t know that this was an exchange of arms for hostages until December 1986, when the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee briefed him.
With this, the attack on Bush’s character that Clinton had launched the previous day escalated. Clinton declared this “diminishes the credibility of the presidency,” and Senator Gore called it the smoking gun that proved Bush had been lying. It was the first subject Larry King brought up when Bush appeared on his show that night, grilling him for two minutes. When the lines were opened to callers, the fourth call was from George Stephanopoulos, Clinton’s communications director. This dialogue followed:
KING: Let me, we have a call from Little Rock from, from George Stephanopoulos, who is, who is– BUSH: Oh no, oh no. Go ahead. KING: He is Governor Clinton’s campaign manager. This is an open phones session. He dialed in directly. It wasn’t a secret number. Go ahead, George. STEPHANOPOULOS: Mr. President, you asked us to find out what the smoking gun was. What this memo clearly shows, this memo by Caspar Weinberger, the Secretary of Defense, is that on January 7, 1986, let me quote from the memo: “The president decided to go with an Israeli-Iranian offer to release our five hostages in return for the sale of 4,000 TOWs to Iran by Israel.” In other words, it was clearly an explicit deal of arms for hostages. But on January 8, 1988, you said that you sensed that we were sending arms, you sensed that we were trying to get hostages out, but it was clearly not arms for hostages and for the last five years you have consistently said that it was not arms for hostages, and this memo clearly shows that it was arms for hostages, five hostages in return for the sale of 4,000 TOW missiles and that you knew it then. According to Mr. Weinberger. BUSH: May I reply? Let me tell you that Mr. Stephanopoulos, a very able young man, was the floor director or something for Mr. Gephardt, who is the majority leader of the Democrats, of the House of Representatives under the Democrats–that’s his background. It is the Democrats who have been pushing –to the tune of some $40 million–these hearings. I would refer him to this testimony, which pretty much says what he has just said. However, to this very day, President Reagan didn’t feel that that arrangement was arms for Hostages, the president of the United States. I have testified to that, and George, if I might make a little political observation here, because I keep reading you are getting into our stories all the time, I think this is rather desperation, last minute politics when you feel something slipping away from you, and you’re too smart for that. KING: George, want to respond? STEPHANOPOULOS: All I would say in response was– BUSH: I didn’t come here to debate Stephanopoulos. I’m here to debate you, Larry. Come on. KING: Let him respond and then you respond. George?
After a second exchange along the same lines, King pursued the question, asking, “But if 4,000 TOWS had gone in return for five hostages, what else could it be’?” BUSH: Larry, please read the testimony. There was trying to work with moderates. They weren’t dealing with people that had the hostages. There’s a whole history that this poor guy is trying to resurrect four days before the election. It’s wonderful how his call gets in. this random call…. KING: We don’t have a private line. We really don’t. I don’t control the calls. BUSH: He’s a patient fella. [Goes on to commend Stephanopoulos for the good job he had done for Clinton. but suggests that he read all the testimony.]
Larry King had scored a coup–a televised ambush interview of a sitting president running for reelection by his opponent’s spokesman. King’s producer says that he “misspoke” in claiming that Stephanopoulos had not been given a secret number and that there was no private line. On King’s next program a caller charged that Bush had been “set up.” King said, “Mr. Stephanopoulos called. He had a complaint. We told him to call back.” He said nothing about his having “misspoken.”
The closure of the gap in the polls was reversed over the weekend. Bush officials put the blame on the adverse publicity resulting from the new Weinberger indictment. One spokesman said, “We hit a wall,” and the help King gave Clinton by arranging the ambush interview was partly responsible. It helped fuel the negative publicity that resulted from the action of special counsel Lawrence Walsh.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) said Thursday he didn't think anyone in history had ever been afraid of Chris Cuomo, a response to the CNN host's suggestion that Cruz feared coming on the network to defend his stance on gun rights.
Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) with The Federalist‘s Ben Domenech, Cruz spoke out strongly against Democrats' calls for gun control, saying their answer was always to strip away Second Amendment rights.
Domenech joked at one point whether Cuomo had tweeted in the past five minutes Cruz was afraid to come on "New Day" and talk about gun rights.
"You know, I am quite certain in the history of the universe, nobody has ever been afraid of Chris Cuomo," Cruz said, drawing laughter.
Cuomo had suggested last week Cruz and other Republicans were afraid to come on his network, leading Cruz to fire back he had spoken with CNN for 15 minutes about gun measures and the network had not aired it.
Cruz also called Wednesday night's town hall a "CNN informercial."
The town hall gave students, teachers and families connected to the Stoneman Douglas mass shooting last week to ask questions about gun control measures. Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch were among the participants and they took sharp-edged questions that called for gun control and blasted the NRA.
Cruz criticized the forum and noted one of the biggest cheer lines was when the audience reacted to the idea of banning every semiautomatic rifle sold in America.
"The left's answer is always, always, always strip the Second Amendment rights from law-abiding citizens," Cruz said. "Here's one of the many problems. It doesn't work."
Cruz said if you wanted crime to take off, "disarm the law-abiding citizens."
Cuomo has taken a stridently pro-gun control stance in his coverage, spreading a debunked story about being able to buy an AR-15 in five minutes with an expired ID and declaring former Florida Rep. David Jolly (R.) to be "on the right side" because of his support for gun control measures.
This do-gooder in Germany was attempting to help some of the African migrants that their leftist leader Angela Merkel has allowed into the nation. He quickly regretted that after he caught them repeatedly selling drugs, drinking alcohol in excess, constantly lying about what they were doing, so he kicked them out.
He quickly found out that was a mistake because they returned and burned down his entire property including killing the family dog.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel on Thursday said he was suspended without pay the school resource officer who was at the Parkland school where 17 people were shot dead.
Israel said school resource officer Scot Peterson took a position outside of the school but “never went in” as the onslaught occurred, citing security footage.
“In the case of Scot Peterson, our school resource deputy, I want to clarify any rumors conjecture or stories that may have been out there,” Israel said.
Israel said Peterson was “absolutely on campus,” adding that he was armed and in uniform during the shooting.
Israel said he decided to suspend Peterson without pay pending an investigation, but Peterson decided to resign.
The armed school resource officer at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School responded to the shooting BUT NEVER WENT IN for “upward or 4 minutes” while the gunmen killed people, said Sheriff Scott Israel.
A Marjory Stoneman Douglas school resource officer has been suspended without pay after Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said video shows him taking up a defensive position during the shooting but never entering the school.
Israel announced Thursday that the decision to suspend Deputy Scot Peterson was made after reviewing video from the shooting and taking statements from witnesses and Peterson himself, Israel said.
“He should have went in, addressed the killer, killed the killer,” Israel said.
Peterson was armed and on campus during the shooting Israel said. Since he met the requirements for retirement, Peterson opted to resign after he was told he was being suspended, Israel said.
Missouri Governor Eric Greitens was indicted Thursday on one felony count of invasion of privacy.
The charge says Greitens knowingly took a photograph of a woman in a "state of full or partial nudity without the knowledge and consent" of that woman. The charge goes on to say the photograph was taken "in a place where a person would have a reasonable expectation of privacy, and the defendant subsequently transmitted the image contained in the photograph in a manner that allowed access to that image via a computer."
Invasion of Privacy in the 1st Degree is a Class D Felony in Missouri.
"Under Missouri law, the Grand Jury has found probable cause to believe that Governor Greitens violated Missouri State Statute 565.252, which was in place at the time of the violation," Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner said in a statement. "This statute has a provision for both a felony and misdemeanor. The law makes it a felony if a person transmits the image contained in the photograph or film in a manner that allows access to that image via a computer."
A judge said Greitens could be released on his own personal recognizance and is allowed to travel, according to Susan Ryan, a spokeswoman for the St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office.
Thursday night, Greitens released the following statement:
As I have said before, I made a personal mistake before I was Governor. I did not commit a crime.
With today’s disappointing and misguided political decision, my confidence in our prosecutorial system is shaken, but not broken. I know this will be righted soon.
The people of Missouri deserve better than a reckless liberal prosecutor who uses her office to score political points.
I look forward to the legal remedies to reverse this action.
This will not for a moment deter me from doing the important work of the great people of Missouri.
A new plane designed by Chinese scientists could be used to build "hypersonic heavy bombers", that could fly between Beijing and London in 78 minutes.
Researchers revealed the plans for a jet with two sets of wings that could fly at more than 3,700mph – or five times the speed of sound.
The plane could reach New York in just two hours.
But one expert warns that China's ever-growing military could load the plane with “anything from flowers to bombs”.
PELOSI: “Well, I’m not the wall’s biggest advocate in Congress, but I do know that representatives in the House and Senators in that body from the border wall areas have some serious objection to a wall because they know how detrimental it can be to the community trade, to all of the other aspects of a border.” But again, let’s sit down and talk things through and see what makes sense. Not some commitment to a promise that we’re going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it. That’s never going to happen. Let’s talk about where a more serious structure might be necessary, where fencing will do, or mowing the grass so people can’t be smuggled through the grass, that’s something, levies, technology, personnel.”
A spokeswoman for Scott’s office confirmed to The Hill that protesters delivered a petition and demanded an audience with Scott, who was not in the office at the time. The protesters represented students calling for stricter gun control following the high school shooting in South Florida last week.
Scott’s office confirmed to The Hill that the governor on Wednesday attended a funeral for one of the 17 people killed in last Wednesday’s shooting, and plans to meet with groups of student protesters at 5 p.m. upon returning to his office.
On Wednesday afternoon during Milan Fashion Week, Gucci staged a spectacular yet peculiar fashion show that included “cyborg” models — which, upon a deeper look, possessed an underlying metaphorical feminist message.
In the Gucci show notes, creative director Alessandro Michele referenced A Cyborg Manifesto, written by Donna Haraway in 1984. In it, Haraway uses the concept of a “cyborg” to represent women, without the constraints of society’s traditional gender labels. As one Wired writer notes, the cyborg in Haraway’s piece “trashes the big oppositions between nature and culture, self and world that run through so much of our thought.”
It poses the idea that all of us are not “naturally made” — or rather, we are “constructed,” like a cyborg. And if “given the right tools, we can all be reconstructed.” That is to say, women aren’t born to be wives, born to work in the house, or “naturally” submissive and overly emotional people. Women can choose to be however they want to be.
Today, feminism is defined as “the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.” But in Gucci’s world, sexes and genders do not exist. So Michele raises a bigger question: Why let traditional gender constraints put forth by society stop women from moving forward with their goals and dreams?
Michele’s vision for Gucci includes models who are genderless: Men wear “women’s” clothing and vice versa, something he has done for several seasons now. He toys with the idea that in the future, traditional notions of men and women will no longer exist. As written in the show notes, “The collection goes further beyond, taking the shape of a genuine Cyborg Manifesto (D.J. Haraway), in which the hybrid is metaphorically praised as a figure that can overcome the dualism and the dichotomy of identity. The Cyborg, in fact, is a paradoxical creature keeping together nature and culture, masculine and feminine, normal and alien, psyche and matter.”
Michele continues, “Gucci Cyborg is post-human: it has eyes on its heads, faun horns, dragon puppies and doubling heads. It’s a biologically indefinite and culturally aware creature.” He refers to these “Gucci Cyborgs” as mongrels, which suggest indefinable, intermixed breeds.
In a show setting that mimicked a surgical operating room, models walked down the Gucci runway carrying their own severed “heads,” as well as an artificial baby dragon, chameleon, and snake, re-created for a different kind of world. The collection included Michele’s signature maximalist style, with beaded jackets layered atop patterned blouses and floral trousers underneath plaid skirts. Ruffled velvet dresses were styled with turbans, and knit balaclavas were paired with exaggerated metallic Victorian blouses.
Snap Inc.’s flagship platform has lost some luster, at least according to one social-media influencer in the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
The Snapchat parent’s shares sank as much as 7.2 percent Thursday, wiping out $1.3 billion in market value, on the heels of a tweet from Kylie Jenner, who said she doesn’t open the app anymore. Whether it’s the demands of her newfound motherhood, or the recent app redesign, the testament drew similar replies from her 24.5 million followers. Wall Street analysts too, have begun to notice, citing recent user engagement trends noticed since the platform’s redesign.
A private citizen received online abuse after CNN tracked her down and publicly shamed her for unknowingly sharing a “Russian-coordinated event” on her Facebook page.
While filming the woman, who runs a pro-Trump page on Facebook, CNN publicly shamed her for “unwittingly” promoting a “Russian-coordinated event.”
“When you’re talking like this, I don’t want anything to do with you,” complained the woman after being repeatedly harassed by CNN’s Special Investigations Unit Reporter Drew Griffin.
Following the incident, conservative commentators criticized CNN for tracking down and attempting to publicly shame private citizens.
“Stop harassing people at their homes, you psychos!” replied conservative YouTube star Mark Dice.
Justin Trudeau has been ridiculed on social media by Indians for his 'tacky' and over the top outfit choices while on his first visit to their nation as Prime Minister.
While many praised his clothing during the first two days of his trip, patience was wearing thin by the time he attended a Bollywood gala on Tuesday night, before the tide turned against him on Wednesday.
Ministers, authors, journalists and ordinary Indians lined up to mock him on Wednesday, saying his wardrobe was 'fake and annoying'.
Perhaps taking note of the criticism, the Canadian leader donned a suit on Thursday as he visited Jama Masjid, one of India's largest mosques.
Leading the criticism was Omar Abdullah, former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, who tweeted on Wednesday saying Trudeau's preening was 'all just a bit much.'
'We Indians do not dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood.'
Bhaavna Arora, a bestselling Indian author, also chimed in, accusing Trudeau of wearing 'fancy dress' and saying she found it 'fake and annoying'.
Shekhar Gupta, founder of Indian newspaper ThePrint also mocked the Canadian Prime Minister, accusing him of 'running a week-long “election campaign” in India in fancy dress.'
The crowd at a Wednesday CNN town hall on the Parkland shooting booed when NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch brought up a rape survivor who supports the Second Amendment.
Kimberly Corban was raped when she was under 21 years old and is an outspoken supporter of the Second Amendment, saying she wishes she could have tried to fight off her attacker with a firearm.
Loesch referenced Corban’s case as a reason why the NRA is reluctant to support a measure that raises the minimum age at which people can buy guns to 21.
“But I also think of young women, and you’ve had a previous town hall where you spoke with a young woman named Kim Corban, who was a college student who was brutally raped in her dorm and she was under the age of 21,” Loesch said, referencing a CNN town hall where Corban asked a question of then-President Obama.
“And one of the things that she speaks out about loudly now is how she wished she would have had the ability to have some sort — a shotgun, whatever it was, to be able to defend herself,” Loesch explained, before being cut off by the crowd’s boos.
The crowd continued to loudly jeer as Loesch tried to explain her position on the age requirement, arguing that if one is old enough to drive a car or serve in the military they should also be able to buy a weapon.
NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said Thursday morning at CPAC that she wouldn't have been able to exit last night's town hall on the Parkland, Fla. school shooting if she didn't have a security detail. Loesch faced off with students who survived the shooting at a CNN-hosted forum.
"I want to make this super obvious point," Loesch said. "The government has proven that they cannot keep you safe. And yet, some people want all of us to disarm. You heard that town hall last night. They cheered the confiscation of firearms. And it was over 5,000 people."
"I had to have a security detail to get out," she said of the Sunland, Fla. event. "I wouldn't be able to exit that if I didn't have a private security detail. There were people rushing the stage and screaming burn her. And I came there to talk solutions and I still am going to continue that conversation on solutions as the NRA has been doing since before I was alive."
Loesch said the people who call Trump a tyrant are the same people who want the president to confiscate weapons.
"The government can't keep you safe and some people want us to give up our firearms and rely solely upon the protection of the same government that's already failed us numerous times to keep us safe. And then they also call Trump a tyrant but they say they want the president to also confiscate our firearms? Try to figure that one out," Loesch said.
In order to fit in with the sterile, pre-packaged scripted fake media driven world we live in today, CNN staged every aspect of last night’s Democratic debate, planting prepared questions in the audience, and even having them practice clapping the candidates before the “show” began.
Politicians, and particularly Presidents, are supposed to be able to react on the fly to the most unexpected of events and situations, but it seems that we’re now firmly in the age of the teleprompter President.
Rarely anything you see anymore is spontaneous or improvised. Everything HAS to go off exactly as planned and without a hitch. Everything is one giant PR program designed to hook mainstream America in and deliver exactly what the powers that be think it wants.
Which is exactly what happened during another snorefest of a Democratic debate presented by CNN.
Before the candidates even took to the stage, CNN had the audience practice applauding, as Anderson Cooper alluded to during the monotonous hours long “build up,” now a mind numbing aspect of every major vacuous TV presentation of the modern day.
Listen to the word to word exact answers given by CNN justice correspondence at different time on CNN, so even the answers given to the questions are read from a Precompiled script.
“Interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile sent information to a top Clinton campaign official about an upcoming a question she got "in advance" one day before a very similar question was asked at a CNN Town Hall, according to hacked emails published by WikiLeaks.
On March 12, Brazile — who at the time was DNC vice chair and a CNN and ABC contributor — wrote Clinton Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri an email reading "From time to time I get the questions in advance."
"Here's one that worries me about HRC," Brazile wrote.
"DEATH PENALTY 19 states and the District of Columbia have banned the death penalty. 31 states, including Ohio, still have the death penalty. According to the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, since 1973, 156 people have been on death row and later set free. Since 1976, 1,414 people have been executed in the U.S. That’s 11% of Americans who were sentenced to die, but later exonerated and freed. Should Ohio and the 30 other states join the current list and abolish the death penalty?"
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Colton Haab said he was approached by CNN to ask a question at Wednesday night's town hall but decided not to after the network gave him a "scripted question," quashing one he wrote himself. Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC shielded students while the school was under attack from the shooter, said he was going to ask about using veterans as armed security guards. (CNN response below.)
"CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab told WPLG-TV.
CNN aired a town hall on the Florida school shooting with Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) that included NRA's Dana Loesch and Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel that was moderated by Jake Tapper. Students and parents asked questions about gun control and school safety.
"I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions," Haab said.
"Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC who shielded classmates in the midst of terror says he did not get to share his experience," WPLG's Janine Stanwood explained.
"Colton wrote questions about school safety, suggested using veterans as armed school security guards but claims CNN wanted him to ask a scripted question instead so he decided not to go," Stanwood reported.
"CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab said. "I don't think that it's going get anything accomplished. It's not gonna ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have."
Survivors of the Parkland shooting and their parents begged President Donald Trump to act on gun violence Wednesday at a tearful listening session at the White House.
Parkland parent Andrew Pollack said that he was 'pissed' as he described his daughter Meadow's horrific death to the president and other families present - she was shot nine times.
'I'm very angry that this happened, because it keeps happening,' the bereaved father said, declaring that 9/11 'happened once, and they fixed everything. How many schools, how many children have to get shot?'
Pollack told Trump, 'It stops here with this administration and me. I'm not going to sleep until it's fixed. And Mr. President, we're going to fix it. Because I'm going to fix it. I'm not going to rest.'
'Fix it! It should have been one school shooting and we should have fixed it! And I'm pissed! Because my daughter I'm not going to see again. She's not here. She's not here. She's at, in North Lauderdale, in King David Cemetery. That's where I go to see my kid now.'
After listening to parents like Pollack for some time, Trump said he'd be looking at making concealed carry permits available to teachers, which he admitted after asking for a show of support is certainly 'controversial.'
