Family of Parkland Shooting Victim Just Filed a Lawsuit Against the Federal Government. Here’s Why.

Wow.

Published

on

The father of a 14-year-old murdered during the Parkland school shooting says that the federal government could have prevented the incident from ever occurring, and as a result of their failure to do so, has filed a lawsuit against them.

Fred Guttenberg came to this conclusion after he received a phone call from an FBI agent who told him that the government could have prevented the shooting, but didn’t.

His daughter, Jaime, was one of the 17 people who died during the massacre.

“Are you telling me that if the FBI did not make a mistake and did their job a month sooner, my daughter would still be alive today?” Guttenberg asked the unnamed agent.

“I’m afraid so, sir,” the agent reportedly responded.

The lawsuit cites several incidents where law enforcement failed to follow up on tips that evidenced a growing malice and tendency towards violence from the attacker.

In one incident, a woman who knows the attacker called an FBI tip line and told them, “I know he’s going to explode.” She even warned that he might commit a gun attack at his school, but no one followed up on the tip.

“Everybody failed, and this is going to be the shooting where we hold people accountable,” said Guttenberg at a meeting of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission.

The family is seeking damages but does not state an amount they are seeking.

There’s little doubt the federal government is, at least to some degree, culpable for the tragic shooting that unfolded that day, which truly put the ineptness of big government bureaucracy on full display.

With the feds dropping the ball so egregiously in this incident and many others, why in the world would you want these same individuals in charge of your healthcare? Anything and everything the government touches it destroys.

This is one of many reasons why conservatives favor a small government. These matters left in the hands of private citizens, including security and safety in schools, is the only way to go.

Beto Seemingly Calls for WAR Over Mueller Report Secrecy

The left just had to find some way to make the idea of transparency seem sensational, didn’t they?

Published

Beto O'Rourke

As the nation patiently awaits the findings of the Special Counsel report, a debate is raging. On both sides of the aisle, we are hearing that transparency is key.  Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General and self-proclaimed “heat shield” for Robert Mueller, has expressed his concerns over tarnishing the reputations of those not accused of a crime. The rest of America seems fairly well convinced, and rightly so, that there should be unfettered access to the report. And while this is undoubtedly a widely felt sentiment, the radical left just had to find a way to make it seem sensational. Cue 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke: “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are not made public, saying, “This is an unprecedented attack on this country and on our democracy, and we are owed the facts. And if we do not receive them, 243 years in, there’s nothing that guarantees us a 244th.” O’Rourke is undoubtedly suggesting that a Civil War or revolution could take place over something that everyone already wants. Not only have a number of democrats parroted the “everyone should get to see everything” line, but they’ve done so in complete agreement with Trump-appointed Attorney General Bill Barr. For Beto to go nuclear in this statement is beyond bizarre, and sounds more like a coaxed soundbite than his true sentiment on the subject.

Mueller Report Findings Expected by Congress Sunday

Monday morning’s water cooler chit chat has already been decided.

Is our long national nightmare actually over?  Well, that depends on who you ask today. For many, the completion of the Mueller report on Friday, without any additional indictments being suggest by the Special Counsel, was a huge win for President Trump.  It meant that there wasn’t evidence sufficient to bring charges against the President…perhaps. We should remember that the DOJ’s longstanding belief was that a sitting President could not be indicted. On the left side of the aisle, however, a tense wait has begun, with the Attorney General expected to hand off a summation of Mueller’s findings to Congress any minute. Attorney General William Barr was expected to release his first summary of Mueller’s findings on Sunday, people familiar with the process said, on what lawmakers anticipated could be a day of reckoning in the two-year probe into President Donald Trump and Russian efforts to elect him. Since receiving the report Friday, Barr has been deciding how much of it Congress and the public will see. Of course, for some democrats, this simply wouldn’t cut it. “I suspect that we’ll find those words of transparency to prove hollow, that in fact they will fight to make sure that Congress doesn’t get this underlying evidence,” Rep. Adam Schiff of California, chairman of the House intelligence committee, said on ABC’s “This Week.” His plan: Ask for information and if that’s denied, “subpoena. If subpoenas are denied, we will haul people before the Congress. And yes, we will prosecute in court as necessary to get this information.” For now, we will just wait and see. We do know one thing for certain:  Monday morning around the water coolor is going to be a happenin’ spot.
