February 21, 2018



Florida enacted a law in 2016 that made the mere threat of a school shooting a 2nd degree felony.



FBI and local LEOs could have easily put this together with just a bit of actual investigation, especially after FBI got 2nd tip


from the CT study: Most people who complete suicide suffer from a mental disorder such
as depressive illness, but only a small proportion of them have a record of involuntary
civil commitment or other gun-disqualifying mental health or criminal adjudication.

I stopped by the doctors office for an infected cut. Before seeing a doctor, the nurse haranged me saying i was due for a "depression screening" based on some flag in the clinic's software. I told them to pound sand, which i was "allowed" to do.

Suppose the CT law applied. Does that mean forced depression screening? What is the false positive rate in that quackery? The AMA is already full on political against guns, think they would weaponize this test?

More feel good crap straight out of the soviet union's mental health procedures.

A few U.S. states have laws allowing police and family members to obtain orders barring people suspected of being a threat from possessing guns, but Florida does not. Some gun control proponents and legal experts said Wednesday's school shooting might have been thwarted if it had.

And a lot of dead kids might still be alive if the football coach was allowed to carry in school. In fact, the shooter might have been deterred by the thought that someone might shoot back.


Concur with henry. I don't like where any of this is going.


More surprises, unions suck: they lie and cheat to keep deducting dues.

Health providers have already been given powers of ad hoc agents of the state far and beyond what should happen in a free society. This is dangerous territory and needs to be strongly resisted.

The CA law is not that objectionable in theory, but is absolutely ripe for abuse.


With all the current examples of federal incompetence and knavery, this part is looking good:
"Let's see different states try variations and generate some live experience before we try to engineer 'one size fits all' best practices from Washington."


henry: "I stopped by the doctors office ..."

On a related note, I've been in 3 doctor visits in the past couple years (myself and 2 of the kids) where I/we are asked if there are guns in the home.

Is this a CA-only thing, or do all of you get these?


i think they got the evil eye enough here they stopped asking, but it is on all the questionnaires. I leave it blank.


We get those questions too, JimNorCal. I usually lie.


And I am not the kind of person who lies on forms. I hate it. But I'm not answering it, especially to the pediatrician.


NSA doesn't spy on citizens? No sweat, FBI does.

They form part of the FBI's clandestine Data Intercept Technology Unit (DITU). DITU works with tech companies but is said to be even closer with telecoms firms, especially Verizon. There are concerns over FBI SIGINT. Not to mention the total lack of transparency here.



Porch: I was startled the first time, and thought of doctors as allied with the individual but now I consider them an agent of the state and routinely lie.


After Obama became president everyone was asked at every doctor's visit if they were afraid at home. I answered "yes". When asked why I told the nurse that I was scared to death of Obama.


My orthopedist is a hardcore libertarian and hates everything about the electronic forms. He says it's all designed to deny care down the road, if not much worse.


My understanding is pediatricians are required to ask that question. A yes answer always got a follow-up of "is it secured and out of the reach of children?"

Re the health care provider intrusiveness about "guns in the home."

I was asked but once if we had guns in the home.

That was when The Bath House Rat's health care lawlessness got rammed down our throats.

I have not been asked since. My non-responsive answer was: "Tell Obama to go ride his girly bike without the seat."

in a culture where wearing a pussyhat is "courageous" based on a fake news story's spin, these discussions only reflect how low the bar has been set for snowflakes.

The Aussies holding out against Rommel in Tobruk was likely to be a scene for many a "courageous" conversations between 88 mm rounds tearing them apart. Sure, it's a wartime example; and, there are other forms of courage----- but the snowflake youth have nothing to compare their canary-like virtue codes to in order to realize that they have no idea what courage is and how it works.

I had to endure this mind-control nonsense on the University of Vermont campus in the 90s. It is diddy-wah white liberal progressive guilt mongering. A cat-o-nine tails woulda been quicker and cheaper "atonement" for the sin of slavery, an eye-for-an-eye, if that's their thing.

The rest is just bullshitake yammering and hyper-anal discussions about what the rules will be "for sharing the space," or "creating a container to hold all of our feelings."

They will be blindsided by reality once they go out into the world and end up in their voluntarily segregated "live/work" spaces and lofts and propeller-headed cubicles.

Trump accuser: President 'should be afraid'

A woman who claims President Trump forcibly kissed her more than a decade ago said Trump “should be afraid” of the truth coming out as he denies such an incident ever happened.

Rachel Crooks, who is running as a Democrat for a seat in Ohio’s state Legislature, told CNN on Tuesday night that she’s not surprised Trump called her a liar in a tweet earlier in the day.

“It is the first time, I guess, he’s attacked me personally on Twitter, but his whole approach to this has been to deny the allegation of myself and, like you said, almost 20 women who have come forward. So it’s not surprising,” Crooks told CNN’s Don Lemon.

“But I would think as our president he would have more important things to do than tweet at me and try to discredit my story,” she continued. “I know what’s true, he knows what’s true and I think he should be afraid of that.”

Doesn't seem Trump's type, looks wise.

We get those questions too, JimNorCal. I usually lie.

I answer that question “none of your business”. So far no one has challenged me.


Schumer: Trump’s gun overtures ‘won’t come close’ to solving problem

“He should call on Congress to pass Senator Feinstein’s bill to ban bump stocks, rather than just draft memos,” Mr. Schumer said. “On far too many issues, this administration has been all talk and little action — we can’t afford that approach when it comes to curbing gun violence.”

The New York Democrat, in a statement, also said Congress must have a much broader debate about expanding background checks. He warned against coupling any background check fixes with a bill to expand concealed-carry rights — an approach the GOP-controlled House took.

Of course he doesn't define "the problem."

Schumer's one of those negotiators who'd rather have nothing than something. I'm sure Trump is ok with that. He can say he banned bump stocks without any help from the Dem's.


My guess is that any answer other than "no" is recorded as "yes."

Hmmmm. No foolin', Senator?

"on far too many issues" you say? The record speaks for itself.

And in case you haven't noticed how the memos, tweets, and toying (with the media) play out into direct concerted action (like when Mick took over the metastisizing CPB in under 72 hours and froze hiring) then you still don't understand the POTUS you have taken an oath to oppose and obstruct.

What does "curbing gun violence" mean anyway? How does one measure when an inanimate mechanical object that's allegedly "violent" (a human quality)has been "curbed?"

In short--- WTF are you talking about?


I’m sitting in a medical facility waiting on my brother listening to the intake of people.

And they both look fully capable of being employed.

Posted by: henry | February 21, 2018 at 09:26 AM

That's not Trump calling out Sessions, that's Trump feeding the necessary narrative so that when Sessions *does* act, the nation will have two primary options to comprehend the historic actions threatening prison for many (at least that part of the nation open to objective review):

[1] that Trump FINALLY pressured Sessions to *do* something (this, frankly, is the position of the Ledge; a group who keep insisting they've never had to engage complex governmental action before against a dedicated adversary) *or*

[2] (will wonders never cease) Sessions actually delegated the show trial stuff to Mueller, then coordinated with Horowitz and Congress, dotted his i's and crossed his t's, and took the professional, methodical route.

I'm telling you, OL, that beating on the Veranda is going to be glorious.

No, they are well aware of that fact. Like Holder (#HimSkurred might as well be his tag), they know Trump has won. They are attempting a Hail Mary to stave off the inevitable.

Exactly. I still maintain the school, the school district, and the Sheriff's Office is far more at fault than the FBI is. As Americano indicated, the mere threat of a school shooting is a 2nd degree felony in Florida.

We have enough damn laws. We need to enforce the damn laws and begin inculcating into these so-called professionals the DUTY they first and foremost owe us when dealing with potentially dangerous individuals who are clearly threatening harm to others.

Retired NYC sanitation worker makes $285K a year from pension

Eugene Egan, the garbage-hauling agency’s longtime director of labor relations, was earning $128,189 a year when he retired in 2015, public records show.

But because the 86-year-old Bronx man started working for the department before July 1973, he was enrolled in the city’s most lavish pension plan — known as Tier 1 — and was able to continue growing his retirement pot throughout a lengthy career.

Asked about his lifetime golden handshake on Tuesday, the golden oldie became defensive and called the figures “fake news.”

China wages war on funeral strippers

China has launched its latest crackdown against a phenomenon which just won't seem to die in rural areas - funeral strippers.

The Ministry of Culture said last month that it was targeting "striptease" and other "obscene, pornographic, and vulgar performances" at funerals, weddings and traditional Chinese New Year public gatherings.

The war on strippers at funerals has been a long one for China. Authorities first began clamping down on "obscene" performances in 2006 and launched a second campaign in 2015.

The latest is focused on 19 cities across four provinces, Henan, Anhui, Jiangsu and Hebei, a statement on the website of the Ministry of Culture said.

Some communities in rural China reportedly believe that bigger attendances at funerals help to honour the dead and bring them good fortune.

I didn't know this but Peter Chang wasn't the only JROTC cadet to be killed by Cruz, there were two others. The Army gave them all Medals of Heroism but only Chang got the West Point appointment. I also didn't know that Cruz was also a JROTC cadet at one time.

So, my question is, why wasn't young mister Hogg a member of that brave squad?

Miss Marple the Deplorable


I am not sure Master Hogg was even a student at the school. Lots of internet chatter about him being older than high school, graduated from a California high school, dad retired FBI, mother CNN producer now retired, etc. etc.

I don't know which is fact and which is fiction. He seems to get an inordinate amount of air time, though.

I feel the best way to protect gun rights for law abiding citizens is go after guns of criminals and those who fit into the Cruz mold. I believe the NRA and most gun rights advocates (such as I am) would support taking away temporarily and permanently the right of a person to own a gun if reasonable cause can be presented to show he presents an imminent danger. I would think state courts have the inherent power to issue such injunctive relief without need of legislation. I would not see this as a federal question.


New charges filed in case against Paul Manafort, Rick Gates

The new document filed in federal court Wednesday by Mueller’s team was put under seal by the court. Judge Amy Berman Jackson is overseeing the case.

According to NBC News, Mueller’s team is looking to see if Manafort promised Stephen Calk, the president of Federal Savings Bank, a job in the Trump administration, possibly in return for loans.

Calk became one of Trump’s economic advisers in August 2016, and Manafort received loans in December 2016 and January 2017 from Federal Savings Bank to buy homes in New York City and the Hamptons. Manafort left the Trump campaign on Aug. 19, 2016.

In court filings Friday related to Manafort’s motion to change his bail terms, federal prosecutors said they have “substantial evidence” that he secured a mortgage from Federal Savings Bank “through a series of false and fraudulent representations.”

So Ext...Stephen Calk must have been a top aid to Putin, right? Otherwise Mueller would not go there.

Pelosi, Schumer want $300 million to protect US election from Russia

Democratic leaders on Wednesday demanded an increase in funding for the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security in the upcoming omnibus spending package after special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals for meddling in the 2016 election.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and leading Democratic appropriators sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., demanding that $300 million be given to the FBI and DHS so they can prevent more meddling.

"We have Russian operatives flooding our social media platforms with misinformation. We need both the resources and manpower to expose and counter them and other hostile foreign actors," Schumer said in a call with reporters Wednesday.

"Both parties in Congress have united and stood up to Putin before," Schumer said. "When we did so, we did so even when our own president wasn't supportive. We need to do it again. We need to do it now."

The letter calls for state and local governments to beef up their defense against cyber attacks, including the replacement of outdated voter registration and voting systems, after it emerged that the Russians tried to attack those levels of government.

It did?


Teen Vogue Writer, Media Hope ‘Evil Bitch’ Billy Graham ‘Rots in Hell’

This is a person who has appeared on NBC, MSNBC, and CNN (at least six times). She’s even been on Fox with Tucker Carlson – although that didn’t go so well.

When she appeared on Carlson’s show in 2016, he told her to “stick to the thigh-high boots” instead of politics. In retaliation, she raised thousands for Planned Parenthood in the host’s name last year. She raised another $5,700 in February just in time for Valentine’s Day.

But she wasn’t the only one who wished hell on Graham. Others, in both the media and entertainment industry followed her lead.


So is Calk charged with bank fraud? approving loans for a job sounds illegal to me.

Saying mental illness and health diagnostic criteria should be used to deny rights is fraught with peril.

Many might be inclined to says that a person who has PTSD shouldn't be able to purchase, possess, transport, or carry firearms. Makes common sense, right? A look at the DSM-V and PTSD Diagnostic Criteria (DC) is in order.


Hmmm. There is mentioned DC for children here, even 6 years old or younger. I thought we were talking about PTSD, like what happens to veterans?

Oh no! PTSD can occur for any numbers of LIFE EXPERIENCES and AT ANY AGE!

I will use me as an example. I meet the PTSD DC for the following:

1. House Fires at ages 4 and 10.

2. Tornadoes at ages 5 and 10.

3. Sexual Assault at age 5.

4. ADD my entire life.

5. Vehicle rollover accident at age 44.

6. Effects of migraines at age 52.

The list could go on and on. Based upon PTSD diagnosis, which one mental health professional said I COULD HAVE, I would be denied rights such as RKBA. I passed NICS for all if my FFL based firearm purchases and passed FBI Background Checks every 5 years for my MI Concealed Pistol License (CPL).

I have passed FBI, DOJ, Homeland Security background checks for work. If PTSD was added to some list, would I be able to work in My field still?

Fraught with peril and the law of unintended consequences would have far-ranging effects for 4 little letters: PTSD


JimNorCal: Maybe this is longstanding, but it seems more important than a lot of other stuff. Like rare gun violence.

Longstanding indeed. 1965. The Moynihan Report.


I agree, PDinDetroit.

Said it before, will say it again: "But we have to do something" are the six most dangerous words in English.


Anyone who thinks that firearms confiscated for temporary mental health issues would ever be returned needs to have their head examined.


Anyone who thinks ownership of firearms won't be defined as a mental health condition needs their head examined.


Yes, let's do something. Let's educate the uneducated! Post this information far and wide!

1. Police have no duty to provide protection for any person, even if a person has a personal protection or restraining order. See Castle Rock v Gonzales.

2. Police have no duty to respond to 911 calls. See Warren v DC.

3. 911 response times are 5-10 minutes on average. Just in time to draw chalk lines.

4. FBI Statistics on officer involved shootings is 18% of rounds fired hit their intended target. See FBI UCR.

A person's life really is in their own hands.

Surber re: Mueller:

An honest man by now would have issued a report exonerating President Trump, thus ending rumors that have plagued not just his presidency but hampered his foreign policy.

Agree totally.

And as a hypothetical, if Mueller decided to do the right thing as Imperator Rex hallucinates at his new thread, what members of Mueller's Team would follow Mueller's lead and do the Right thing? Stroke? Page? Ohr and his wife? McCabe? Weissner?

Who of all the biased criminal creeps Mueller selected has the slightest interest in doing the right thing by serving Justice proper?

It seems to me that Mueller so hamstrung himself by hiring so many Clinton/Obama loving scum, that even if he wanted to now do the right thing he couldn't. He already gave them carte blanche to destroy Trump's Presidency any way they liked so why the hell would they swap horses in the middle of the stream and now start pretending to be good guys to salvage Mueller's legacy?
