Even liberal NPR found that the latest round of “studies” on school shootings were a steaming pile of trash

It’s pretty bad when NPR is holding their noses from the stench of this nonsense.

It is taken as a given among the anti-gun left that all of America’s schools are in danger of constant mass shootings. But this article of faith is more myth than fact and even National Public Radio recently debunked the left’s narrative on shootings in schools.

Firstly, the truth is that school shootings are statistically still rare in the general scheme of things. Even the liberal Washington Post noted this fact. In March, Harvard professor David Ropeik noted, “the statistical likelihood of any given public school student being killed by a gun, in school, on any given day since 1999 was roughly 1 in 614,000,000. And since the 1990s, shootings at schools have been getting less common.”

So, why the hysteria that every American kids is constantly at risk of being gunned down in school? Well, because it fits the anti-gunners’ agenda, of course.

Facts don’t matter to liberals. And even liberal NPR found that the latest round of “studies” on school shootings were a steaming pile of trash.

NPR looked into the 2015-2016 numbers on school shootings recently published by the Department of Education. The department claimed 240 school shootings occurring in the year of the study. But NPR found that two-thirds of those supposed incidents never happened.

According to NPR:

This spring the U.S. Education Department reported that in the 2015-2016 school year, “nearly 240 schools … reported at least 1 incident involving a school-related shooting.” The number is far higher than most other estimates.

But NPR reached out to every one of those schools repeatedly over the course of three months and found that more than two-thirds of these reported incidents never happened. Child Trends, a nonpartisan nonprofit research organization, assisted NPR in analyzing data from the government’s Civil Rights Data Collection.

We were able to confirm just 11 reported incidents, either directly with schools or through media reports.

In 161 cases, schools or districts attested that no incident took place or couldn’t confirm one. In at least four cases, we found, something did happen, but it didn’t meet the government’s parameters for a shooting. About a quarter of schools didn’t respond to our inquiries.

Most of the school leaders NPR reached had little idea of how shootings got recorded for their schools.

For example, the CRDC reports 26 shootings within the Ventura Unified School District in Southern California.

“I think someone pushed the wrong button,” said Jeff Davis, an assistant superintendent there. The outgoing superintendent, Joe Richards, “has been here for almost 30 years and he doesn’t remember any shooting,” Davis added. “We are in this weird vortex of what’s on this screen and what reality is.”

Even the ACLU found that report to be problematic. The Southern California ACLU were only able to confirm fewer than a dozen of the incidents in the government’s report. The group also found that 59 percent were errors.

Wow, that is some failure. And what a waste of tax dollars that study turned out to be. But you know darn well that anti-gun nuts will use this fake news report for all its worth to push their agenda.

Finally, Paul Bedard just published a piece today debunking yet another lefty “fact.” Many liberals have touted the claim that the U.S. accounts for 31 percent of all mass shootings in the world. But Bedard now reports that the real number is only just over one percent (1.43 percent in fact)!

But chances are you’ll see that lie of 31 percent far more often than the real number.

Kamala Harris’ Ex-Flame Makes WILD Prediction About 2020 Chances

Buckle up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty wild.

Kamala Harris

As with any election that involves an incumbent President, the other side of the aisle is straining to put as many candidates out in the ether as possible.

This crowding of the democratic race for 2020 will certainly provide the nation with a very intimate look into the differences among the progressive avenues of the left-wing, and will undoubtedly escalate their internal infighting to epic proportions.

There is a very real chance that this could bring the democratic party itself to its knees, as the socialist wing attempts to convert some of the more moderate wings, and with the possibility that the entire organization could be driven hard to the left.

And let’s not forget that the 2016 race created an unfathomable opportunity for the DNC to discover just how to rig their own primaries.  Now that this precedent has been set, trust in the democrats is at an all time low.

So, does Kamala Harris stand a chance?  Her ex-lover doesn’t seem to think so.

Former San Francisco mayor and California State Assembly speaker Willie Brown threw shade at his ex-girlfriend, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and the other contenders for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, writing Saturday that none of them can beat President Donald Trump.

In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown wrote:

Make no mistake, President Trump’s State of the Union address was the kickoff for his 2020 re-election campaign, and so far I’ve yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.

[T]he overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite.

You can’t say the same for the Democratic contenders. They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the “people personality” that our media-savvy president has mastered.

Let’s just hope Democrats can figure out that we need to go beyond the left and motivate voters across the board, just as midterm congressional campaigns did under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership.

“Beyond the left” sounds like the surefire end of the democrats as we know it, but there will only be one way to know for sure.

Buckle up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty wild.

Leading 2020 Democrats Outed as Supporter of Segregation

Of course, the division of the American populace has worked wonders for democrats at the ballot box, where galvanized, fringe societal groups band together to fight the supposed “evils” of conservatism.

There has been a whole lot of talk about modern segregation, particular as it applies to the nation’s current political climate.

Over the course of the last few years, the liberal left has been doing their damnedest in order to disparage their across-the-aisle colleagues.  Republicans have routinely been targeted for extreme abuse by lawmakers such as Maxine Waters, and by celebrities such as Kathy Griffin.

In the case of Waters, it was only days after her infamous “form mobs” speech that several women from the Trump administration were shouted out of restaurants while dining with their families.  For Griffin, however, her faux “dead President” photoshoot was followed only two weeks later by the actions of a crazed Bernie Sanders campaign worker who attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team in Virginia.

For the left, conservatives are simply second class citizens, and it shows.

But why are democrats so fond of this discrimination?  Well maybe it’s because they are secretly fond of all discrimination.

Take it from Joe Biden, on the subject of “busing” African Americans during our nation’s period of segregation.

“I think the concept of busing … that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride,” Biden said, “is a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity.

Desegregation was “a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied; and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity, their own individuality,” Biden said.

Of course, the division of the American populace has worked wonders for democrats at the ballot box, where galvanized, fringe societal groups band together to fight the supposed “evils” of conservatism.

Naturally, the only way to make enemies out of countrymen is by hatred and segregation – possibly explaining why prominent democrats seem so blasé about such prejudice.
