“Too early” to say Pensacola Naval shooting was terrorism yet three Saudis apparently filmed the incident

Yesterday morning a Saudi national at Naval Air Station Pensacola opened fire and killed three people before being killed by law enforcement. The Saudi national, a member of the Royal Saudi Air Force, was receiving pilot training (are you kidding me?) at our military installation. His name was Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani (pictured above).

According to Breitbart, a total of six Saudis are being questioned about the incident. Three of those Saudi’s were caught filming the incident.

Yeah, no question about terrorism there AT ALL.

More from the NY Times:

“Six other Saudi nationals were detained for questioning near the scene of the shooting, including three who were seen filming the entire incident, according to a person briefed on the initial stages of the investigation.

It was not known whether the six Saudis detained were students in the classroom building, and there was no immediate indication that those filming the incident were connected to the gunman, the person said.”

Read their whole story here.

In my opinion, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to deduce that this was most likely an incident of terrorism.

Some demorats missed the message from Florida Keys: As seas rise and flooding gets worse, not everyone can be saved

The “climate crisis” hysteria has reached peak levels.

According to a story from Yahoo, “Officials in the Florida Keys announced what many coastal governments nationwide have long feared, but few have been willing to admit: As seas rise and flooding gets worse, not everyone can be saved. And in some places, it doesn’t even make sense to try.

The article explains how the county’s sustainability director released the first results of the county’s yearslong effort to calculate how high its 300 miles of roads must be elevated to stay dry, and at what cost. Those costs were far higher than her team expected — and those numbers, the director said, show that some places can’t be protected, at least at a price that taxpayers can be expected to pay.

It’s ALWAYS about getting the taxpayer money, isn’t it?

You can read all about the doomsday predictions here.

Yet SOME demorats – the really, REALLY RICH ones – missed the memo about rising sea levels and flooding. Just take a look at the following headlines:

George Lucas Buys $28 Million Beachfront Home in Carpinteria, California
Barack and Michelle Obama Just Paid $11.75 Million for a Martha’s Vineyard Waterfront Vacation Home
Mark Zuckerberg spent almost $60 million on 2 waterfront estates in Tahoe last winter. Here’s a look at the 10 properties he owns across the US, from a modest Palo Alto home to a Hawaiian plantation
Oprah has yet to visit her Orcas Island (waterfront) estate, but it may soon undergo remodel

HYPOCRITES, all of them!

Another TDS-infected fool: Florida man arrested after spitting on man wearing MAGA hat

How do people who are SO triggered by a hat get through real life?

From Yahoo: A 43-year-old man was arrested after allegedly spitting on a 67-year-old man wearing a “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hat at a restaurant in Vero Beach, Florida, on October 25, local media and police said.

Surveillance footage released by the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office shows Robert Youngblood, wearing a red MAGA hat, sitting with two other men at a bar in a Hurricane Grill & Wings restaurant. The footage shows a man walk past the group and hit the brim of Youngblood’s hat. Police said the footage then shows the same man lean over a railing, spit on Youngblood, and leave.

Before the man slapped Youngblood’s hat, he told him, “You should go back to Russia, you f—-ing communist,” according to a police report.

The report said Youngblood took down the license plate of the car the suspect left in, leading police to a Vero Beach address for Laura Torres. When police visited the address, they said they spoke with Torres and her husband, 43-year-old Matthias Ajple.

Torres said she told Ajple to tell Youngblood to “go back to Russia as a joke,” and then told police she did not see the altercation, according to the police report.

Ajple told police he “supports” law enforcement and said Donald Trump supporters are “communist and racist,” according to the report.

“I don’t even care that I’m going to jail, this is actually exciting, plus I have more time on this earth than he does anyway, he probably feels so good about himself,” Ajple is quoted as saying in the report.

Ajple was charged with battery and taken to the Indian River County Jail, according to police.

Pregnant woman protects family with an AR-15; one perp dead

Score one for the Second Amendment.

From Fox News: A Florida woman who was eight-months pregnant and came out wielding an AR-15 rifle reportedly saved her husband and pre-teen daughter last week from a pair of violent intruders who’d broken into the family’s home — with the gun-toting matriarch fatally striking one of the men, who was later found dead in a nearby ditch.

Jeremy King was at his home in Lithia, 25 miles southeast of Tampa, at 9 p.m. Wednesday night when two armed men, wearing masks and hoods, broke inside.

“As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” King told Bay News 9. “I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you,’ and they’re like, ‘Give me everything you got.’ It became real violent, real fast.”

King said one of the burglars pistol-whipped him and another kicked him in the head, creating a commotion that attracted the attention of his wife, who walked into the room to see what the noise was — and soon found herself dodging a bullet.

The woman, who was not identified, reportedly retreated and grabbed an AR-15 that was legally inside their house, returning to the room and shooting the intruders, hitting one of them.

“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King said of his wife. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

The man was later found dead in the ditch, according to the news outlet. The other burglar fled when his friend was shot.

“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it. [My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me,” King said, noting he suffered a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity and a concussion, and needed “20 stitches and three staples in my head.”

Neither of the intruders was publicly identified by authorities.
—————————-

And because the media can’t let facts get in the way of their narratives, CNN reported that the woman used an “automatic rifle” to shoot the intruders. They corrected their error two hours later.

“Republican” mayor calls for his city to ban assault weapons because “my prayers aren’t working”

RINO George Cretekos

Mayor of Clearwater, Florida – George Cretekos – ain’t no republican, despite what this story states.

The proof? Just look at his Twitter timeline and some of his tweets and who he retweets:

Retweet of Paul Krugman: “I was warning about escalation, but things moving faster than I expected”

Retweet of Garry Kasparo (who promotes Renew Democracy in his Twitter bio): “As in Helsinki, Trump’s demeanor around Putin is that of a loyal dog afraid of being whipped. Joking with a dictator about his proven attacks on US elections is pathetic”

Retweet of Bill Kristol: “Excellent from @DavidAFrench at @NRO: “’Where is the outrage?’ The same question applies today, but to a different audience. The lies are simply too much to bear. No Republican should tolerate such dishonesty.” (Regarding Mueller report)

Retweet of Politico: “Opinion: Trump’s national emergency is great news for future President Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Cretekos a republican? Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

From Yahoo: The Republican mayor of a Florida city is calling on Congress to take action on strong gun control measures, saying that thoughts and prayers just aren’t cutting it when it comes to America’s gun violence epidemic.

George Cretekos urged his fellow city council members in Clearwater to pass a resolution which would represent a potent message in a state known for its fidelity to the National Rifle Association.

“I’ve gone to church, I’ve prayed,” Mr. Cretekos said this week, referencing a common refrain after mass shootings in which politicians offer “thoughts and prayers” for victims, but stop short of taking any practical measures to prevent future shootings.

“My prayers aren’t working,” he continued, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Florida state law prohibits cities from enacting their own firearms regulations, but Mr. Cretekos’s resolution would send a symbolic message to Congress that it should move to ban assault-style weapons and high capacity magazines, to pass a national “red flag” law, and to expand background checks so they can cover private sales.

“In the past, council and I have stayed away from national issues,” Mr. Cretenkos said. “But I think this issue is something that we need to consider to let people know where we stand as a community to encourage safety.”

Florida is the state in which two of the most deadly mass shootings in recent years have occurred, having drawn national attention after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, and at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Seventeen people were killed in Parkland by an expelled former student in February 2018, while 49 people were killed and more than 50 wounded at the Pulse nightclub in June 2016.

Mr. Cretenkos’s call for action is significant not only because of the state he lives in, though, but also because of his standing as a Republican.

In the past, Republican leaders and politicians in Washington including Donald Trump have reacted to shootings by proposing modest gun control measures, but have yet to make good on those promises.

The good mayor’s call for an assault weapons ban was shot down:

“The City Council on Thursday approved a resolution that called on Congress to pass modest gun control measures, but failed to go as far as Mayor George Cretekos had proposed earlier in the week.

In a compromise, the five-person council, which includes Cretekos, voted 3-2 to pass a resolution calling for the red flag law expansion and the stricter background checks. But the resolution was softer on the weapons and magazines. Instead of calling for a ban, it called for a “review of laws governing the accessibility of high-capacity ammunition magazines and military-style assault weapons.”

Florida demorat admits to lying about treating Pulse shooting victims: “I just made it up”

Sick womyn.

From Fox News: A Florida Democrat who ended her run for a seat in the state’s House of Representatives late last month admitted to authorities that her claim of being a medical doctor who treated Pulse nightclub shooting victims in Orlando wasn’t true, according to a charging affidavit released this week.

“I lied,” Elizabeth McCarthy told state investigators, Florida Politics reported. “It is a false statement.”

During her candidacy, McCarthy, 50, told people she was a doctor at Orlando Regional Medical Center and treated 32 victims of the 2016 massacre.“I personally removed 77 bullets from 32 people … It was like an assembly line,” McCarthy claimed at a gun safety event earlier this year.

On at least two occasions, McCarthy was introduced at public events as “a doctor” by Democratic U.S. Rep. Darren Soto, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Florida Politics began investigating her claims last month, prompting an investigation by the Florida Department of Health, which confirmed it had no record of her as a licensed medical professional.

“I just made it up,” she told investigators, adding that she was portraying a life she invented.

“I wanted to be somebody in the community, and I’m sorry,” she said. “I’m sorry that I gave any impersonation. I knew it was wrong and I should have stopped.”

Last month, she claimed in a Facebook post that she was a victim of “campaign smearing.”

McCarthy has been fined $3,094.95 for misrepresenting herself as a medical professional and is barred from telling anyone else she is a doctor, Florida Politics reported.

Forty-nine people died at Pulse nightclub on June 12, 2016, when a gunman entered and opened fire at patrons.

MAGA: President Trump raises $24.8M for re-election in less than 24 hours

From Yahoo: President Trump held a rally in Orlando on Tuesday night billed as the kickoff to his reelection campaign. And according to the Republican National Committee, he received nearly $25 million in contributions in less than a day.

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel announced Wednesday that Trump raised a “record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election.”

“The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen!” she tweeted.

RNC chief of staff Richard Walters told Yahoo News that the total is a combination of the amount raised by the Trump campaign and Trump Victory, the joint fundraising arm for the campaign and the RNC.

The RNC took in $10.8 million from major donors at two fundraising events, while the Trump campaign raised $8 million through a phone drive and about $6 million in online donations. (The average online donation was $44, Walters said.)

Trump’s one-day haul is nearly four times the amount former Vice President Joe Biden raised in the first 24 hours after announcing his 2020 presidential campaign.

Biden took in $6.3 million, the largest first-day total for any of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. According to Biden’s campaign, the money was raised from nearly 97,000 individual donors across all 50 states.

The former vice president’s campaign raised slightly more in its first 24 hours than former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke ($6.1 million) and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders ($5.9 million).

Biden, though, has faced criticism among Democratic rivals for his embrace of high-rolling donors and top-dollar fundraisers.

“I don’t spend time at fancy fundraisers,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted earlier this week. “Instead, I spend my time meeting voters and thanking grassroots donors who chip in what they can.”

Statue of kissing VJ Day sailor vandalized a day after his death

How miserable must your life be to vandalize a statue dedicated to a beautiful, iconic moment?

From NY Post: A day after the sailor seen kissing a woman in a nurse’s uniform in an iconic photo snapped in Times Square died at age 95, a statue in Florida commemorating the couple was vandalized with a “#MeToo” painted in red.

Police responded early Tuesday to someone vandalizing the “Unconditional Surrender” statue in Sarasota, where they found the hashtag about sexual assault and harassment painted on the woman’s left leg, according to the Herald-Tribune.

After searching the area, officers did not find other objects that were defaced or any spray paint bottles. There also was no surveillance video of the incident.

“The approximate damage is estimated to be more than $1,000 due to the large area that the graffiti covers, and the resources needed to repair it,” police said.
The city’s Department of Public works washed off the graffiti by 9 a.m., police said.

George Mendonsa, the jubilant sailor shown kissing white-clad dental assistant Greta Zimmer Friedman at the “Crossroads of the World” on Aug. 14, 1945, died Monday at the age of 95. Friedman died in 2016 at age 92.
Known as V-J Day, it was the day Japan surrendered to the US.

The indelible image by Alfred Eisenstaedt became one of the most famous photographs of the 20th century.

“It was the moment that you come back from the Pacific, and finally the war ends,” Mendonsa told CBS News in 2012.
Some view the smooch as a celebration, but others consider the act a sexual assault by modern standards.

“Unconditional Surrender” was created by Seward Johnson, who was inspired by a lesser-known photograph by Navy photographer Victor Jorgensen, of the same scene captured by Eisenstaedt.

This is such baloney: “Crazy sh*t democrats want”

Demorats says the darndest things…

A liberal who lives in Georgia and goes by the name of “TDP” claims that demorats just want to “follow the law.”

His Twitter bio states the following: Middle-class white guy, small business owner, marathon runner, pseudo-intellectual political analyst, and garage sale aficionado. Blocked by @SebGorka.”

On Nov. 9 he tweeted the following:

“Crazy sh*t Democrats want to do:

  • make healthcare affordable
  • reduce gun deaths
  • defend the Constitution
  • follow the law
  • count all the votes”

Let’s do a check on each of the “crazy sh*t” points he claims demorats want, shall we?

Make healthcare affordable:

Obama’s biggest lie of the year (in 2013): “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”

In 2014, Forbes published an article that concluded “Obamacare Has Increased Non-Group Premiums In Nearly All States.”

From their article:

“However, a new study from the well-respected and non-partisan National Bureau of Economic Research (and published by Brookings Institution), overcomes the limitations of these prior studies by examining what happened to premiums in the entire non-group market. The bottom line? In 2014, premiums in the non-group market grew by 24.4% compared to what they would have been without Obamacare.  Of equal importance, this careful state-by-state assessment showed that premiums rose in all but 6 states (including Washington DC).”

After the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, I saw my health insurance premiums rise each year while my coverage DECREASED to catastrophic-level coverage. My health insurance plan started out at $380/year and rose to $620/year (while my deductible rose to over $8,000/year and double that for out-of-network coverage).

In 2019, some consumers will experience a decrease yet premiums and deductible are still high. From Consumer Reports:

“If you’re shopping for health insurance through Affordable Care Act exchanges, the time to enroll for next year has arrived. After a few years of big price increases, some consumers will see relief.  

Still, what you end up paying will vary significantly depending on where you live. Rates will be lower in 19 states, and eight of those will see drops of 10 percent or more. But six states have double-digit premium increases. The variation reflects how differently states are trying to rein in the cost of health insurance. 

Premiums and deductibles are still high, of course, which means you’ll need to shop carefully and compare plans to find the best fit.”

Many, many people experienced the same consequences of having to “pass the bill to find out what is in it.”

Reduce gun deaths:

Progressives want to reduce gun deaths via the hash tag of #guncontrolnow. “

Yet many cities and states have some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation and for some reason, their gun death statistics are the highest. See the following demorat-government run examples:

The problem isn’t the lack of gun control laws but rather the ENFORCEMENT of said laws. See the following examples:

Defend the Constitution:

This, of course, doesn’t include defending the Second Amendment.

And the Constitution should be defended, as long as it meets liberals’ standards. For many years, progressives have stated that our Constitution is “outdated” and needs to be updated. See the following examples:

Follow the law:

This is rich. Many progressive-run cities and states blatantly ignore the law and have proclaimed themselves to be a “sanctuary” for illegal aliens. Why cooperate with the federal government when you can choose to ignore federal immigration laws? See the following examples:

Count all votes:

This is one point I do agree that demorats do want: To count all votes, including those of illegal aliens and dead people. And if the process has to ignore a federal court order, so be it. Demorats will find a way to win. See the following examples:

Anyone can tweet an opinion about their party. The tougher part is defending your statement with facts to backup your bullet points.

And that little fact irritates liberals. Just best to tweet your ignorance and hope you get lots of retweets!

The double standard of the left: You’re either for civility and law or you just joke about it

The appropriately named “doofus” who jokes about “chocy” milk and battery…

Guess which side the proggies favor…

TDS-infected libtards change their rules every day. They claim to be the “tolerant” party yet cannot act in a civil manner in our society (just ask Tucker Carlson). See the following:

I came across this tweet by some “doofus” who tweeted the following:

“The right: you f*cking pussy ass liberal Cucks. Also the right: hello police, mean lady throw chocy milk at me.”doo

The “doofus” was referring to the incident that I told you about when an unhinged intern for demorat Andrew Gillum was arrested for battery for throwing chocolate milk on a group of College Republicans tabling on campus.

Granted having chocolate milk thrown on you is no big deal…or is it?

In a civil society, people can control their emotions and actions and not break laws. They can act civil toward one another. They can also respect personal boundaries.

Yet the left ended the rules of civility on November 8, 2016 when President Trump was elected.

Let’s take a look at the definition of battery that most civilized societies recognize, shall we?

The definition of battery, from Wikipedia: Battery is a criminal offense involving the unlawful physical acting upon a threat, distinct from assault which is the act of creating apprehension of such contact.

Battery is a specific common law misdemeanor, although the term is used more generally to refer to any unlawful offensive physical contact with another person, and may be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. Battery was defined at common law as “any unlawful and or unwanted touching of the person of another by the aggressor, or by a substance put in motion by him.” In most cases, battery is now governed by statutes, and its severity is determined by the law of the specific jurisdiction.”

Given the unhinged antics of the left today, are we to assume that the unwanted touching of a deranged liberal with an unwanted substance is to be accepted?

I have a question for the doofus: Would you not be mad and do nothing if something was thrown at your girlfriend by an unknown person? Would you sit back and let her take it? Are you such a Soy Boy that you would allow people to freely throw things at your girlfriend in a threatening manner?

Do you care nothing about her personal safety? Are you not concerned about what the unknown assailant might throw at her or what they might do to her next?

Doofus can joke about “chocy” milk all he (and I use that term loosely) wants.

Real Americans care about the rule of law. And any real man would stand up and protect their gal from ANY kind of battery, instead of joking about it.

Yet we all know that demorats care nothing about the rule of law (see sanctuary status, Florida elections, Benghazi, private servers, etc.) unless it benefits THEIR ideals.

In my eyes the real p*ssy is one that arbitrarily condones legal violence against an opposing political party, as long as he can turn it into a joke. Such a brave doofus…

And that’s the double standard of the left.
