Joke of the Day

An elderly Italian man who lived on the outskirts of Rimini, Italy went to the local church for confession.

When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional, the man said: ‘Father …. During World War II, a beautiful Jewish woman from our neighbourhood knocked urgently on my door and asked me to hide her from the Nazis. So I hid her in my attic.’

The priest replied: ‘That was a wonderful thing you did, and you have no need to confess that.’ read more

Accidental Weapon Discharge in Class Sounds Like a Setup

WOW! Do I smell a set up or what!

The Washington Post reported a few days ago that, “A teacher [Dennis Alexander] who is also a reserve police officer trained in firearm use ‘accidentally’ discharged a gun Tuesday at Seaside High School in Monterey County, Calif., during a class devoted to public safety, school officials said in a statement.”

Folks – this story is just too convenient not to be given closer scrutiny by authorities. It won’t because it’s California, but it should. And in a class specifically “devoted to public safety.” Please. Also, by sheer coincidence, the incident happened one day prior to the national student walkout against everything guns.

“I can’t find the words to say how sorry I am for the incident,” he said at the packed meeting attended by about 100 students who supported Alexander.

“Police have said Alexander was pointing the gun at the ceiling Tuesday to make sure it was not loaded when it discharged inside his classroom at Seaside High School.” The ceiling? And this guy is trained in the proper handling of firearms? Again – please! read more

Video Podcast – After the Florida Shooting Comes the Borg – the Pennsylvania Election

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The aftermath of the Florida school shooting reveals the collective mindset of the left. In today’s podcast I liken them to the Borg collective, popularized in the series, Star Trek, The Next Generation.

I reveal the remarkable similarities of today’s radical leftists to the fictional Borg, where everyone thinks and acts the same – working in lock step to build a Utopian society.

I also discuss the winner (if it holds up) of the Pennsylvania special congressional election, Conor Lamb, who ran as a conservative, but will discover in short order, that he must become part of the leftist Washington collective to survive. read more

Biden’s Son Lands Billion Dollar Deal

from Steadfast & Loyal:

Yes Indeed!


It must be nice to be a child of royalty especially when daddy is a Democrat devoid of inhibitions and prone to breaking the law. In 2013, Joe Biden took his son to China with him and two weeks later China cuts him and Chris Heinz, stepson of John Kerry in on a 1.5 billion dollar deal. Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz were cut into the deal partnering with the Chinese bank and merging with Biden’s Rosemont Seneca Partners. The new entity known as Rosemont Seneca Bohai, was a yuge deal for Biden. At the time of the deal Biden was VP and Kerry was Secretary of State.

A Walkout Based on Lies

Guest Post by: John Velisek USN (Ret.)

Thursday was a student walkout of over 3000 schools throughout the country as a way to show deference to the students murdered by a crazed gunman is Parkland Florida. This is a major story as it should be, but the reasons for the walkout mutated to nothing more than another reason to bash the NRA and innocent gun owners throughout the country.

The main premise, which was covered almost 24/7 by most of the progressive mainstream media, focused on the major issues that those in charge see them since the shooting. Guns are bad, assault weapons which are fluid in their definition at best, are worse, and the NRA are boogeymen who must be eradicated in any way possible.

Let’s talk of those really in charge of this whole show of concern and outrage. The Women’s March, Media Matters and ultimately George Soros have combined to organize all this. The teachers union comprised of forced dues-paying members and progressives who use the opportunity to instruct these children in the Marxist traditions that education uses as a base today.

The political indoctrination and propaganda that is being forced on these children today is the same as it has been for the college students that we all have seen in the streets burning and looting because they care more than you do, are more educated than you are, and are in every way, morally superior to those outside of the bubble they have placed themselves inside.

Being a social justice warrior sounds like a high level, morally superior person – someone who can walk on water and dispense truth like Tide Pods to any who will listen – almost a God-like creature who leads the ignorant masses to


the light. These protests are built on the premise “that a child should lead them” – faintly historical, faintly biblical but of a pattern unseen in the roots of religion. read more

Lamb Campaigned as a Republican – When Will Dems Start Attacking Him

from IBD:

So, When Will Democrats Start Brutally Attacking Gun-Loving Conor Lamb?

While viciously attacking Republicans for opposing gun control, Democrats are celebrating the victory of gun-loving Conor Lamb in the Pennsylvania special election. What would those student gun control protestors say if they knew about that?

What has barely been mentioned over the past few weeks, however, is the fact that Lamb ran as a something of a poster boy for the NRA.

One of Lamb’s campaign ads, for example, showed him firing a scary looking assault weapon while the voice over touted his Marine background and said he “still loves to shoot.” read more

Students Should Blame School District for Unsafe Conditions

from Michelle Malkin:

Look homeward, “change agents:” My #nationalwalkoutday message

Here is my homework assignment for all the fist-clenching, gun control-demanding teenagers walking out of classrooms this week (and next week and next month) to protest school shootings:

Ask not what the rest of the country can do for your local school’s safety; ask what your local school boards and superintendents have been failing to do for you.

Chances are, the adults closest to you — those most directly responsible for your security — have been shirking their primary duties, squandering scarce resources and deflecting blame. read more
