Democrat Rep. Makes It Clear: We Are AGAINST Arming Teachers for Self-Defense

Seems kind of, I don’t know, dumb!?

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, one of the key players in ensuring Hillary Clinton received the Democrat nomination for president in 2016 (no matter what) makes it clear.

Teachers should not be allowed to protect themselves.

Isn’t that nice?

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) responded to President Trump’s renewed his calls for armed teachers by stating that “teachers, parents, and students are united against arming our educators.”

Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell of California might just run for president in 2020.

Why?

Who knows?

Then again, candidate Donald Trump wasn’t given much of a chance from the jump when he declared back in 2015, either.

The thing about Swalwell is that he’s a typical progressive.

He wants guns confiscated by any means.

He even suggested nuking Americans who fight back.

From Daily Wire:

Swalwell made the comment in response to a May news article on his radical plan that was widely recirculated on Twitter on Friday in which he called for a $15 billion government program to confiscate millions of guns from Americans.

More from Swalwell, who admitted to conservative Dana Loesch he wants to ban guns:

The 2020 Democrat presidential field is likely to be as crowded as the GOP’s in 2016.

Possible contenders include:

Former Vice President Joe Biden. Former Attorney General Eric Holder, the only cabinet-level official to ever be held in contempt of Congress.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Fame-seeking lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Senators Kamala Harris (CA), Cory Booker (NJ), and Elizabeth Warren (MA).

Sens. Bernie Sanders (VT) and Amy Klobuchar (MN).

Former New York City Mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, too.

Why not Swalwell?

Add Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., to what is expected to be a crowded field lining up to run against President Donald Trump in 2020, according to Politico.

“He’s definitely running,” a source told Politico, because Rep. Swalwell has not officially announced his intentions to campaign for president.

Rep. Swalwell, 37, will reportedly be the first potential candidate to head to Iowa. He grew up in Iowa, the famed location of the Iowa Caucuses will kick off the primary season across the United States every four years.

How about soon to be ex-Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper?

From The Hill:

“I’m the governor of Colorado and I’m gonna run for president,” Hickenlooper said during a stop in New Hampshire, where he’s campaigning for down-ballot Democrats.

65 million people voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, and Texas Senate loser Beto O’Rourke just broke every single one of their hearts.

Beto has been caught lying about his mother being a “lifelong Republican” and saying he did not flee the scene of a hit and run accident (he actually did).

An undercover video reveals Beto’s team is using campaign funds to aid the migrant caravan making its way through Mexico to the United States.

THE NUMBERS ARE IN: Florida has Lowest COVID Rate in the Nation

Well, would you look at that.

If Governor RonDesantis isn’t planning to shove this in everyone’s face for a while, we’d be surprised.

Florida, a state that has been the bane of the liberals’ existence in recent months due to their freedom-first coronavirus precautions, now get to gloat.  And bigly.

In mid-August, Florida was averaging about 25,000 new cases a day, or about 116 for every 100,000 residents. That was the worst rate in the U.S. — and one of the worst in the world. Awash in the hypercontagious Delta variant, the Sunshine State became one of the epicenters of the global pandemic.

During the past two months, however, Florida’s daily average has plummeted by more than 90 percent, to about 1,700 cases, or eight for every 100,000 residents. That’s roughly half of California’s current COVID rate and less than a quarter of Vermont’s. Hawaii (with nine cases for every 100,000 residents) is the only other state in single digits.

DeSantis has been absolutely adamant about allowing Floridians to choose the level of risk that they wish to take as it pertains to COVID-19, and has barred businesses and institutions from enacting vaccine or mask mandates.  This has gained him a great deal of criticism from the liberal left, who have insisted that the Governor is being reckless.

Search Warrant in Baldwin Shooting Reveals Blatant Negligence

This is unconscionable.

Published

on

Any time that someone dies on a movie set, you have to know that something has gone terribly, unforgivably wrong.

These sets are microcosms of the work of enormous and wealthy companies who are lawyered up to the gills, wading around in an industry where someone else’s misfortune is not to be squandered by the competition.

Nothing should ever go wrong on a movie set, if not for these simple facts alone.

That is why the latest details in the shooting death of a cinematographer last week are so damning.

The crew member responsible for overall safety on the set of Rust has admitted he didn’t properly check the gun that Alec Baldwin fired on October 21 and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

“During an interview with David Halls, when Affiant asked David about the safety protocol on set in regards to firearms, he advised, ‘I check the barrel for obstructions, most of the time there’s no live fire, she [Hannah] opens the hatch and spins the drum, and I say cold gun on set,’” reveals an affidavit successfully submitted by the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office for a new search warrant issued today (read the search warrant here).

“David advised when Hannah showed him the firearm before continuing rehearsal, he could only remember seeing three rounds,” the filing adds, noting the interaction that afternoon last week between the First AD and armorer Hannah Gutierrez.

And then…

“He advised he should have checked all of them, but didn’t, and couldn’t recall if she spun the drum,” the affidavit bluntly states of the crew member who has emerged at the core of this tragedy.

No charges have yet to be filed in response to the incident, but prosecutors have made it very clear that they haven’t ruled it out.
