slaughtered worshipers at Al Noor [mosque] in a roughly two-minute rampage within that building. He then left for about two minutes before re-entering the building and firing on people on the ground for a further minute.
Left and came back. Then he drove five miles across town to another mosque and started in again.
The butcher was active for thirty-six minutes before police arrived—that’s thirty-six minutes from the first call to the police, not from the start of the shooting.
New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo (D), has provided another example of the dishonesty of Progressive-Democrats as he continues to whine about his State’s excessive State and local taxes no longer being deductible above a high maximum on Federal income tax forms.
He said Trump intentionally targeted states whose populations oppose him by a majority.
You pay your state income tax, they then tax your state income tax payment. First time ever.
Or just another sordid example of the Left’s double standard?
Recall the 29 cops, including SWAT members who did the dawn raid on an old man’s home in order to arrest that dangerous criminal Roger Stone.
Compare that with the treatment of a member of the Hollywood elite, Lori Loughlin, who’s accused of bribery and other crimes related to the current college admissions scandal. She’s being permitted to present herself at a local police station at a time of her convenience pursuant to the allegations.
Loughlin has made arrangements to surrender when she returns to Los Angeles, TMZ, the celebrity news site, reported.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) was asked whether he thought Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s remarks were anti-Semitic.
I did. Let me be really clear, suggesting that support for Israel is beholden to a foreign power is absolutely unacceptable and illogical, too[.]
He went on, adding
as an Italian-American, he does not feel “beholden to my ancestral homeland” as Omar appeared to characterize some Jewish Americans in regard to Israel.
The point makes me wonder: is Omar, in assuming some groups of Americans have conflicting loyalties to America and to their home country, projecting her own allegiance to Somalia, neverminding the treatment she says she got there?
…Michael Cohen told House investigators this week [the week ending 8 Mar] that staff for Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D, CA) traveled to New York at least four times to meet with him for over 10 hours immediately before last month’s high-profile public testimony….
Schiff and his staff conducted these “meetings” in secret and without minority party representation (here Republican) present.
One by one…Cohen fielded questions on precisely the same topics that the sources told Fox News he discussed with Schiff’s staff during the sit-downs in New York.
French Cardinal Philippe Barbarin was convicted in a French court of covering up the sex abuses of his priests. The coverup? It wasn’t a one-off affair; Barbarin’s priest—Bernard Preynat—confessed to repeated abuses from the 1980s into the early 1990s. That’s what Barbarin was so carefully hiding.
This court sentenced the Cardinal to a whole six-months. Then the court suspended all of those months.
This implies that France doesn’t put much importance on child abuse, even sexual abuse of children.
The government’s action is an insulting slap on the wrist.
This one has the advantage of being live and current. The Progressive-Democratic Party has extended its control over the State of California. The results accumulating from the several years of Progressive-Democratic dominance (now outright control) are these. California has
the highest welfare numbers (a third of all Americans on welfare live in California)
the largest contingent of illegal immigrants
a burgeoning homeless population
onerous regulations on business and private property
mediocre public schools
high income taxes (the highest marginal rate is 13.3%) and sales taxes
