Student Searched by School After Posting a Four-Year-Old Picture of Himself With a Gun Under Adult Supervision

Westlake Legal Group man-886601_1280-620x388 Student Searched by School After Posting a Four-Year-Old Picture of Himself With a Gun Under Adult Supervision threats Texas school punishment Politics Guns gun rights gun control Front Page Stories firearms Featured Story Allow Media Exception Academia

People are jumpy about firearms, especially around students. People can’t be blamed as there are a lot of reasons to be jumpy. Schools being shot up has become something America is infamous for thanks in part to a media that frenzies around shootings and glorifies the shooter with all the attention they could ever want…if that shooter falls in line with a narrative they’re trying to push.

This has caused people to become frightened whenever, and if ever a student shows him or herself with firearms.

Recently, a student at the Iola ISD in Texas posted a four-year-old photo of himself on Facebook that showed him with a firearm under adult supervision. The student put the word “school” with the photo, prompting a couple of students to report him to authorities.

“It was a young student, had a handgun in the picture and part of the wording on the picture it had the word “school” in it. So we take that stuff very seriously here. As we investigated we found out the picture was a four-year-old picture,” said Scott Martindale, Iola ISD Superintendent according to KBTX-TV.

The student was then searched upon arriving at school, but no firearm was found.

“It took us five minutes to handle this situation and handle it appropriately,” said Martindale.

“It was before school started. We had two younger students report something to our elementary principal. By 7:55 the elementary principal tracked that student down that had the posting,” he added.

The school, in my opinion, handled the situation just fine with the exception of the fact that they now plan to discipline him according to district policy. Why he needs to be punished for a private Facebook post is something that everyone should take issue with, as non-threatening Facebook posts should not fall under the category of judgment by an educational body. They are not the parent and if happening off school grounds then they should leave any disciplinary measures to the parents with no exceptions.

What’s more, what isn’t discussed is the student’s meaning of the word “school.” KBTX and those interviewed say that the student was referencing “his school,” but it’s not made clear if he was actually talking about his school. No one seems to have asked if he meant that his education with firearms under the supervision of the adults around him was “school” for him. That learning how to use a firearm at that age was part of his familial education.

The American educational system has reached its hand out of bounds a little too often, and are even interfering with the lives of students for things they do outside of its walls. For instance, a boy was recently banned from a school after video of he and his mother firing legal guns on a range surfaced. The school had police investigate the student and after a short conversation with him and his mother, found there was no reason for alarm.

Still, the school kept the ban on the student and forced the mother to prove her son’s innocence against a board of seven school officials.

Joe Biden Proposes a Unique Way of Bringing Gun Ownership Into Line With the Liberal View of the Second Amendment

How many times have you heard some progressive on television or some leftwing lackwit on Twitter make the blindingly stupid statement that the Founders never conceived of individuals owning “weapons of war” or an “AR-15?” We’re told over and over that the only weapons available to the Founders were single-shot muzzle loaders and that is what the Second Amendment refers to. Never mind that this is the only amendment to which a technology test has been applied (the Founders would probably have an easier time imagining an AR-15 than the internet), or the fact that it is absolutely false (cannon were standard gear on privately owned sailing ships up until the Civil War era). Now the Nation’s Rain Man, Joe Biden, has come up with a truly ingenious way of preserving the Second Amendment and bringing it into line with the progressive position:

The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them is absolutely mindless. It is no violation of the 2nd Amendment. It’s just a bow to the special interests of the gun manufacturers and the NRA.

This proposal would outlaw about 99% of all rifles and shotguns in the United States as even lever, bolt, and pump action weapons are magazine fed and hold “multiple bullets.” It would definitely outlaw about 100% of all pistols as that stubby little double-barreled, break-action .22-cal derringer your grannie left you is already illegal.

In further comments Biden did a great public service. Here you at least have to give him credit for candor:

If you’ve been paying attention at all you knew this was the case but it is still refreshing to see it in print.

As I posted yesterday, we can’t give any ground on gun regulations because the left’s endgame is a “no guns” regime.

Millionaire Said to Have Vital Information about Jeffrey Epstein Suddenly Disappears

Westlake Legal Group jeffrey-epstein-620x332 Millionaire Said to Have Vital Information about Jeffrey Epstein Suddenly Disappears pedophilia Paris Jeffrey Epstein Jean-Luc Brunel International Affairs Front Page Stories France Featured Story crime Allow Media Exception

screengrab from https://youtu.be/zHmhGR3djYg

The case surrounding pedophile Jeffrey Epstein is only getting stranger as now as a millionaire said to have vital information to the investigation has suddenly vanished “without a trace.”

The millionaire in question is a model agency boss is 72-year-old Jean-Luc Brunel whose agency had girls that were seen Epstein’s mansion, according to the Daily Mail:

Brunel – who founded New York’s MC2 – denies any involvement with crimes committed by Epstein.

A Paris legal source told the Daily Mirror: ‘He is a ghost who has disappeared without trace.’

It comes after former model Svetlana Pozhidaeva, who was signed to MC2, was pictured at convicted paedophile Epstein’s mansion in New York back in 2016.

One of Epstein’s underage girls, Virginia Roberts, claims that she also slept with Brunel “many times” when she was between the ages of 16 and 19.

Brunel is being searched for by authorities in Paris, whom they believe is where Epstein found a lot of his girls. Brunel lived in Paris, and with his girls appearing in Epstein’s mansions, it’s only natural to want to ask some questions. However, Brunel has vanished like a ghost and authorities cannot find him as the Daily Mail reports that Brunel has no address, internet accounts or social media.

The last confirmed location Brunel was in was Brazil before the start of the summer, where he was searching for new talent.

A list of odd things continues to build surrounding Epstein. Be it the strange circumstances of his suicide, the cameras around his cell cutting out, and his cellmate being threatened into silence, conspiracies have been erupting into the public left and right, but this time, for a good reason.

Epstein was a well-connected billionaire who ran an underage sex ring that was allegedly trafficked by the rich and powerful. A lot could be lost by the information Brunel has.

Iranian Government Acts Butthurt Over President Trump Mocking Their Primitive Missile Technology

Last week, a missile that was destined to carry an Iranian satellite into orbit exploded on a launch pad. As best I can tell, the revelation was first made by a commercial satellite companies Planet Labs Inc. and Maxar Technologies after someone noticed smoke billowing from the launch pad

As the word spread, Iran initially denied that any such thing had happened.

Then President Trump back…hard.

Naturally, this was followed by all manner of idiots claiming that President Trump had divulged highly top secret reconnaissance capabilities without so much as a mother-may-I directed to the acting Director of National Intelligence. And (gasp) it also showed that we had satellites or drones over the launch space shortly after the explosion thereby signalling what we were behind it. (The same nimrods failed to mention that two commercial companies also had satellites over the launch site at about the same time.) In reality, the wording of the tweet suggests that someone familiar with the launch site terminology wrote it. This implies it is an intelligence operation. Secondly, without access top the actual image one doesn’t even know whether it is an actual image from a reconnaissance platform or simply a photoshop manipulation based on the existing commerical images. But such is the life of people who are in the late stages of TDS.

Now the spokesman for Iran’s prime minister has responded in a most petulant and butthurt type of way.

Iran acknowledged for the first time on Monday that a rocket at its Imam Khomeini Space Center exploded after satellite photos showed the blast last week, with an official saying a technical malfunction during a test caused the explosion.

The explosion marked the third failure involving a rocket at the Iranian center, which has raised suspicions of sabotage in Iran’s space program.

However, Rabiei dismissed that, saying that “this has been a technical matter and a technical error. Our experts unanimously say so.”

“The explosion happened at the launchpad and no satellite had yet been transferred to the launchpad,” Rabiei said. “It happened at a test site, not at the launch site.”

As there was no reason to mention the destruction of the satellite, the obvious inference is that the satellite was destroyed. And you’d always cart a satellite out to a test site, and not to a launch site, because the don’t teach logic in Iranian schools.

Rabiei criticized Trump’s decision to tweet about the rocket explosion.

“We don’t understand why the U.S president tweets and posts satellite pictures with excitement. This is not understandable,” he said. “Maybe this is because lack of Iran-related subjects that they raise such issues.”

Bottom line. Iran is embarrassed that their attempt to master 1950s technology has failed. They didn’t realize the world knew. They really didn’t like it when Trump focused international attention on the failure and, given Iran’s craptacular history with maintaining anything resembling security of their most classified facilities (see Stuxnet and Mossad’s making off with their nuclear research archive), hinting that the explosion was not entirely accidental. This comes on the heels of Iran’s nuisance campaign of harassing merchant vessels in the Straits of Hormuz being shut down once the US and Great Britain decided to pay attention to it and their Hezbollah proxy getting humiliated several times a week by the Israelis. On the whole you’re seeing nothing that indicates that Iran is not a regional power of the cusp of a catastrophic collapse of its ability to project either power or influence. And that makes it exceedingly dangerous for the time being.

Beto Starts Selling a Provocative New T-Shirt Because He Thinks He Can F-Word His Way to the White House

Red State’s Alex Parker wrote over the weekend about how failed U.S. Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke is campaigning for the “hip” vote with his frequent use of the f-word (including saying it unbleeped on live TV) to describe his frustration with the debate over gun rights in the aftermath of recent mass shootings.

In response to what we’re being led to believe is the rising popularity in Democratic circles for the struggling 2020 presidential candidate to use the f-word, the Beto campaign has come out with a new t-shirt in order to capitalize on the alleged momentum.

The Hill reports on what sparked it:

The Texas Democrat was at a campaign speech in Fairfax Station, Va., on Saturday when he heard news of another mass shooting in his home state, just weeks after 22 people were killed by a gunman inside an El Paso Walmart.

“Not sure how many gunmen. Not sure how many people have been shot. Don’t know how many people have been killed. The condition of those who have survived. Don’t know what the motivation is, do not yet know the firearms that were used or how they acquired them,” O’Rourke told a crowd of supporters in Virginia.

“But we do know this is f—ed up. We do know that this has to stop in this country. There is no reason that we have to accept this as our fortune, as our future, as our fate,” he continued.

[…]

O’Rourke defended his use of profanity during a Sunday interview on MSNBC, citing a tweet from Rabbi Latz.

“He said ‘profanity is not the f-bomb. What is profane is a 17 month-old baby being shot in the face,’” O’Rourke said.

Here’s the t-shirt the campaign is now selling. All proceeds go to Moms Demand Action and March For Our Lives:

Apparently Beto doesn’t realize that the f-word lost its shock value to most people a long time ago. Nevertheless, he persists. Because it’s cool or something.

Veteran journalist Brit Hume was among the many who questioned the strategy behind O’Rourke using the word:

But the shirt was totally spontaneous, y’all, according to the campaign’s Director of Creative and Product:

Just going by what I’ve read on social media, far more people are oohing and ahhing O’Rourke for using the word than those who are complaining about him using it. The outrage from the latter camp is over O’Rourke’s controversial gun confiscation proposal.

I’m not sure what’s more annoying: That he actually thinks using the f-word is going to change the debate about gun control in his favor, or that liberal men and women alike are swooning because they believe him saying things are “f’d up” means he’s super-passionate about the issue.

Snopes Shills for Joe Biden Again, Babylon Bee Roasts Them

Snopes apparently wants to burn down what little credibly they may have had left after their past few months of targeting the Babylon Bee.

The supposed unbiased “fact-checking” site has essentially taken off the mask at this point. To be fair, they are a few years behind Politifact on that front, who recently went so far as to ask if word choice even matters while making excuses for false statements from Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, refusing to give a rating.

This past weekend, Snopes decided to “fact-check” a claim that Joe Biden had lied in making up a war story last week (see Joe Biden Just Makes Up a War Story While Campaigning). Here’s an excerpt from the article I wrote on the incident for some backstory.

According to Biden, he brushed off concerns about the risk of him traveling to the deadly area. “We can lose a vice president,” he said, recounting his words to a crowd during an event on Friday. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” His story involved the captain dramatically telling Biden he didn’t want the medal because his comrade ended up dying.

But after speaking with more than a dozen military and campaign sources, the Post determined the event “never happened” and that “almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect.”

Enter Snopes to save the day and shill for Biden after even The Washington Post had to admit almost nothing he said was correct.

Snopes ends up rating the claim that Biden’s comments were false as “mixed,” which is ludicrous. They also pointedly assert that his Biden’s story is “not false” because the “underlying recollection” was true.

Biden’s story is not “false,” as was widely reported, because his underlying recollection of pinning a medal on a grieving soldier who did not want the medal is based on a real occurrence.

When nearly every detail in your story isn’t true, that means you are telling a false story. The fact that some people in the story may actually exist or that some aspects may mildly resemble other events doesn’t change that. Has Snopes ever rated any statement by a Republican in such a charitable way? I’m going to guess no but if someone has an example, I’d love to see it.

Remember, these are the people we are supposed to trust to cut through the fog of misinformation. Outlets that can’t even be bothered to rate a false statement as false.

Having had Snopes attempt to destroy them, noted satire site The Babylon Bee hit back at this ridiculousness.

Now, that’s good stuff.

Loser: Rep. Eric Swalwell Takes Appalling Cheap Shot at “Good Guys With Guns” After Odessa Mass Shooting

What kind of garbage human being sits around and waits for the opportunity to take appalling cheap shots against good guys with guns in the aftermath of a mass shooting?

A failed presidential candidate like Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA), that’s who.

The day after the horrific random mass shooting Saturday in Midland and Odessa, TX that left 7 dead and 22 injured, Swalwell quote-retweeted a post from 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke regarding the type of weapon the Odessa/Midland shooter used.

Here’s what Beto tweeted:

Swalwell responded that he agreed with O’Rourke on his proposal to confiscate all types of so-called “weapons of war” guns via a forced buyback program:

A Twitter user replied to Swalwell’s tweet with a suggestion on how to prevent future mass shootings:

It was in response to that tweet that Swalwell chose to cut loose on “good guys with guns”:

A lot of people took issue with Swalwell’s gutter swipe, including the NRSC’s Matt Whitlock. Check out how Swalwell replied to being called out for being a whiny loser:

Here’s the thing that ignorant, sexist pigs like Swalwell don’t think about when they tweet stuff like that:

1) He doesn’t know if any of the victims were armed and just didn’t have a chance to react because, you know, in mass shootings victims aren’t typically given that opportunity. If any of the surviving victims were armed, can you imagine how it would make them feel to see a sitting U.S. Congressman mock them?

2) Nobody outside of police and witnesses know if there was any realistic chance of anyone outside of law enforcement being able to successfully target the shooter without harming or killing others.

3) As Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted over the weekend, there are a lot of stories out there of good guys with guns who stopped either stopped a mass shooting, stopped one from getting worse, or who used a gun in self-defense of themselves or their loved ones.

Swalwell chooses to ignore those instances, because they don’t fit in with his agenda.

Is there any low to which this man will not stoop?

A University’s ‘Diversity’ Council Tries to Banish Chick-fil-A, as the Far Left Continues Its Phonic Fart in the Face of Language and Reason

Westlake Legal Group one-way-street-582635_1280-620x412 A University’s ‘Diversity’ Council Tries to Banish Chick-fil-A, as the Far Left Continues Its Phonic Fart in the Face of Language and Reason Uncategorized tolerance Social Justice sexuality & gender diversity faculty and staff council language Kansas University intolerance immigration Ignorance Hypocrisy Front Page Stories Featured Story Diversity democrats Culture & Faith Culture Chick-Fil-A bigotry Allow Media Exception

 

 

I don’t know what’s happened to some on the Left. Quite a while ago, they decided to begin changing — or, nullifying — language. Their preferred alternative to valuable communication: Just say things that are wholly unrelated to your intention (like here).

For example, they changed the meaning of “diversity.” The new definition: “Us.”

So “Celebrate diversity” = “Celebrate us.”

The word no longer has anything to do with variety. It just means them.

I recall seeing a car several years ago with two bumper stickers: “Celebrate Diversity” and “Rush is Fat.”

Another switch: “Immigration” presently means “the opposite of immigration,” and actual immigration has no corresponding term. An “immigrant” is now someone who bypasses immigration in lieu of participating in it.

And one of their apparent favorites: an end to condemnation toward bigotry and the rise of perpetual bigotry, accompanied by a brand new usage. Their newfangled multisyllabic big-o-try now means “everyone but us.” So down with bigotry.

The old definition: Intolerance for an opposing view.

Celebrating the revolution of rendered-uselessness, some staff at Kansas University want to banish the on-campus Chick-fil-A to a basement.

And why? The Sexuality & Gender Diversity Faculty and Staff Council decried the chicken institution as a “bastion of bigotry.”

Let’s review: A group of people are intolerant of the opposing view of Chick-fil-A — AKA bigotry. Such bigotry, in fact, that those who disagree must be done away with. Chick-fil-A, on the other hand, does not practice bigotry, but rather the act of having an opinion. Possessing a viewpoint does not constitute an intolerance of others; yet, in the magical new dictionary, Chick-fil-A are bigots — and, therefore, must not be tolerated.

Behold: a phonic fart, courtesy of their stinky linguistic war.

But not everyone agrees with the Council — the chain is America’s most popular fast-food joint for the fourth year in a row.

Back to the actual bigots at KU adhering to a meaningless definition of a once-useful term — “academics,” no less — they want the makers of the country’s most important single pickle to get outta town because they threaten “the mental well being” of some on campus.

From Fox News:

The faculty council, filled with “extreme frustration,” wants America’s favorite restaurant removed from campus for being a “bastion of bigotry” after KU administrators relocated a Chick-fil-A from a basement to “prime real estate” on campus to the Memorial Union. But worse yet, to the council, is the “Chick-fil-A Coin Toss” at the start of the Jayhawks’ football home games.

“The culture of Chick-fil-A fosters hate and discrimination on multiple levels,” the Sexuality & Gender Diversity Faculty and Staff Council wrote in a two-page letter, accusing university leaders of being “more concerned about money and corporate sponsorship than the physical, emotional, and mental well being of marginalized and LGBTQ people.”

The faculty group added: “The arrival of Chick-fil-A in this building is insulting, counterproductive and unacceptable.”

Katie Batza, an associate professor of women and gender studies, told the Kansas City Star that hundreds “will boycott or protest” but lamented that the request was “falling on deaf ears.”

Interim Provost Carl Lejuez sent an email to faculty and staff, however.

“Moving forward, I believe it is important to have thoughtful discussion and deliberation when we enter into contracts. In the future, we will do so in a manner that is transparent and informed by our commitment to affirm diversity and to be a welcoming and inclusive campus,” the email said, according to the University Daily Kansas.

“Inclusive” — another word they’ve tossed into the trash.

Fortunately, the word “pitiful” still means the same.

And applies.

Ted Cruz Explains to Alyssa Milano the Correlation Between the Bible and the Right to Use a Gun for Self-Defense

In the aftermath of the horrific random mass shooting Saturday in Midland and Odessa, TX that left 7 dead and 22 injured, leftists and media types once again renewed their calls for stricter gun control.

They also attempted to ridicule the state of Texas over new laws that went into effect the day after the shooting that increased gun rights for residents.

In the midst of Democrats demanding more gun control and scolding Republicans over their expressions of thoughts and prayers, Texas State Rep. Matt Schaefer (R) took to the Twitter machine to talk about what he was “NOT going to do” in response to what happened Saturday:

Naturally, left-wing hacktivists like actress Alyssa Milano were outraged, and asked where exactly the right to own a gun was listed in the Bible.

Sen. Ted Cruz stepped up to the plate to calmly explain in a series of tweets:

Milano’s reaction to Cruz’s serious answers to her question was to deride them as “bull sh*t.” She also suggested they meet the next time she was in DC so she could broadcast it live for the world to see, because narcissistic virtue signaling is the only form of “activism” Milano knows how to do:

Cruz’s 10 tweet explainer on the Bible as it related to self defense was, of course, much better than Milano’s warped distortion of scripture to justify her support of abortion on demand back in April:

Bless her heart.

Friday, we were told that Hurricane Dorian would come ashore in central or north east Florida sometime Saturday. That hasn’t happened. In fact, it looks like it probably won’t happen.

Dorian is going to curb stomp parts of the Caribbean and then head north but stay at sea paralleling the US coastline.

The most recent storm track shows it paralleling the coast and dying out somewhere off North Carolina late next week.

While it sucks to be in the vicinity of the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos, we should thank our guardian angels that the storm is not going to come ashore in the United States.

Having said that, the storm generated some of the most highly-charged stupidity in recent memory. A former Canadian (naturally) prime minister was cheering for the hurricane to hit Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate (see this from Sister Toldjah). She wasn’t alone among the blue-check Twitter fellatistas who were hoping for billions of dollars in property damage and hundreds, if not thousands, of deaths to be able to get their OrangeManBad on.

And, of course, some tied it to anthropogenic global warning, the apparent religion of the less-than-bright left.

But since he said it, consider this. We know a great deal about hurricanes because they cause a large amount of property damage and loss of life. Trying to understand hurricanes has had significant interest since the 18th century when the Royal Navy  in the Caribbean would change its base of operation to Halifax, Nova Scotia, each June to avoid hurricane season. By trying to understand them, we can avoid or mitigate potentially catastrophic evens. Friday, this storm was going to hit Florida on Saturday morning. It didn’t and won’t. But the same lackwits bleating about global warming want us to believe that their models, which are wildly inaccurate even in retrospective analysis, are able to predict net changes in the earth’s temperature within a fraction of a degree some decades into the future. You really can’t have both of these things existing. If you can’t accurately forecast a highly studied and localized phenomenon you certainly can’t forecast with any accuracy macro- and micro-climate changes decades in the future.
