Media Mocks Texas Lt. Gov for His Comments on School Shootings. Here’s Why He’s Right.

These are the people who want to disarm you.

Published

Mainstream news outlets and gun control advocates were quick to criticize Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick over his comments that the construction of the school in Santa Fe in which a 17-year-old gunman opened fire on Friday, killing 10, may have worsened the outcome.

What they didn’t understand was that he was actually right–the floorplans and exit and entrance strategies to any given building is the difference between a soft target and a hard target. There’s one problem: these critics simply have so little of an understanding of strategies for tactical defense, they couldn’t even recognize the language he was using.

“From what we know, this student walked in … with a long coat and a shotgun under his coat,” he said Sunday, according to a CNN article oh-so-objectively titled Texas official blames school shooting on too many exits and entrances. “It’s 90 degrees. Had there been one single entrance possibly for every student, maybe he would have been stopped.”

“We need to get down to one or two entrances into our schools,” Patrick said again on Sunday. “You have the necessary exits for fire, of course, but we have to funnel our students into our schools so we can put eyes on them.”

CNN, in their boldfaced and shameless bias turned this into: “Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick blamed Friday’s massacre at a high school near Houston in part on ‘too many entrances and too many exits’ on the campus, prompting some to mock his perspective as ‘”door control.'”

It’s unclear, if anyone other than CNN “mocked” Patrick for this, but they were in good, left-leaning, gun-grabbing company:

Dana Loesch on her radio program Monday said those mocking Patrick, however, are nothing more than “tactical keyboard warriors” on Twitter and know nothing of the plain security knowledge Patrick is displaying.

“Dan Patrick was mocked because he talked about something that the people mocking him didn’t understand. They don’t understand what it takes to secure something like a school,” she said. “Dan Patrick was absolutely right.”

She also referenced veteran J.R. Salzman who corrected Patrick’s critics by explaining “he’s talking about secure entrances. My kid’s school only has one entrance to get in and you have to be buzzed in by the front desk. That’s what he’s talking about. Controlling access, establishing a secure perimeter.”

This is very basic security lingo, and yet those who are most adamant about your Second Amendment rights being destroyed are the least knowledgeable in the issues they claim the most to know about: mass shootings, and keeping our children safe.

These are the people who want to disarm you.

Senator Obliterates Dr. Fauci’s Holiday Gathering Advice

“We don’t need permission”!

Published

on

If you follow the science, and the math, it’s beginning to become clear that the coronavirus pandemic is waning.  Again.

In the days before the Delta variant became the prominent strain of COVID-19, we were just about out of this whole mess.  Venues and restaurants were opening again.  People were beginning to gather at home or with friends.  When delta arrived, the ease retracted a bit.  The masks were a little more prevalent.

But now, if you simply look at the case numbers and infection rates, it is plain to see that everything is going to be okay.

This is what Florida Senator Rick Scott believes, as evidenced by his latest comments regarding the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), dismissed suggestions that Dr. Anthony Fauci can give or take away permission for Americans to celebrate the holidays with their families, calling it “insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live.”

“We don’t need Fauci’s permission to celebrate the holidays with family. People are smart. They know how to make decisions that best protect their loved ones. It’s insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live,” Scott said in response to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief’s recent remarks […]

Fauci had recently insinuated that gathering with people outside of your immediate home over the holidays may not be advisable, suggesting instead that people continue to socially distance from even their own family.

Psaki Sinks to New Low with Tone-Deaf Supply Chain Quip

Middle class Americans didn’t find it very funny.

Published

on

Americans the nation over are nervous.  They are suffering.  They are sick with anxiety.

The Biden administration has been an experiment in many ways, not the least of which is the idea that he was elected not for who he is, but for who he was not – namely, Donald Trump.  Biden was the Democrats’ stop-gap, and a reluctant one at that, and now we are all paying the price for giving this “anti-voting” whimsy.

The last 8 months have been brutal for many of us, and with a swiftly worsening supply chain situation beginning to impact local grocery shelves and Christmas shopping lists, things are only going to get tighter for the American middle class.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki finds it hilarious, however.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki cracked a joke Tuesday about the supply chain crisis affecting businesses and consumers across the country, saying it’s a “tragedy” some people may have to wait longer for their treadmill to arrive.

“The tragedy of the treadmill that’s delayed,” Psaki sighed during her daily press briefing.

Psaki was asked to address the supply chain disruptions across the country that have left store shelves bare ahead of the crucial holiday shopping season. One reporter asked why President Biden hadn’t acted sooner to address the crisis and whether his administration had failed to anticipate the issue.

The poorly-timed attempt at humor quickly faced intense backlash on social media, with users lamenting the elitist sentiment.

President Biden has suggested that port operations increase the length of their working day to 24 hours in order to expedite backed-up shipping lanes.
