A slaughter of the most innocent in the Heartland
"He came in and he crouched a little bit and he said, he said 'It's time to die,'" the fourth-grader told the outlet. He said that he and his friends hid: "I was telling my friend to not talk because he is going to hear us."

At least 19 very young school children and two adults are dead after a madman went on a rampage in a Texas elementary school. Accounts of the tragedy are only now beginning to emerge. Yesterday Texas officials conducted a press conference that had to be one of the worst ones law enforcement had ever given. We now know that it took an hour for cops to stop the Texas school shooter. Can anyone imagine the horror those kids experienced being confined to a classroom with that lunatic?

Police told kids at Texas school to 'yell if you need help.' When one little girl did, the gunman shot her. This was Texas law enforcement?  When I see those Texas cops, I expect the very best. It is hard not to judge them as facts continue to come out, but it looks like they failed to do their duty. It turns out that it was a lone off-duty Border Patrol agent who finally put an end to the madness. The agent saved the lives of countless children trapped inside Robb Elementary school. after his wife, a fourth-grade teacher at the school, texted him that there was an active shooter.


The Week:

Inflation still running high:

"A key measure of annual inflation that is closely watched by the  Federal Reserve  continued to run hot in April as widespread supply disruptions, extraordinarily high consumer demand and worker shortages fuel rapidly rising prices. The personal consumption expenditures price index, which measures  costs  that consumers pay for a variety of different items, showed that core prices – which exclude the more volatile measurements of food and energy – soared 4.9% in the year through April, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis."

Sussman Trial goes to Jury:  

Here lies the dilemma for John Durham. He has presented a flawless case against Michael Sussman, but that case now goes to a jury comprised of three Clinton donors, an AOC donor and a woman whose daughter is on the same sports team as Sussmann's daughter. It's a longshot, but for the sake of justice, we all need a conviction.

"Democratic attorney Michael Sussmann, accused of lying to the FBI about his work for the 2016 presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, has decided not to testify in his own defense at his ongoing trial on a false-statement charge. Sussmann’s defense rested its case on Thursday and jurors are expected to hear closing arguments beginning Friday morning."

Fighting to win:

"Ukraine's military released an unverified video last week of its troops by a border post marked in their flag's colors of yellow and blue.

Intended as a boast at how far Ukraine's counteroffensive had pushed Russian troops back from the second city of Kharkiv, the celebrating soldiers purportedly had enemy territory almost underneath their boots. But just how likely is it that troops like these could push further and enter Russia?

While there are no indications Ukraine is looking to send soldiers into its neighbor, the war has taken some unexpected turns. In the eastern Donbass region, where fighting is concentrated after Russia's withdrawal from Kyiv, Russian cities are tantalizingly close for Ukraine's troops to embarrass Moscow."

Oklahoma Gov. Stitt signs bill requiring students to use bathrooms aligned with their biological sex at birth:

  Oklahoma Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt  says the measure he signed into law on Wednesday that requires students in schools across the state to use restrooms that align with their biological sex at birth is "common sense" and that it is "kind of crazy" that the law had to be passed in the first place.

What have we learned?

It seems that democrats never tire of trying to use a crisis. Most notable was the disgraceful performance of Beto "Bozo" O'Rourke, who disrupted a press conference after the tragedy in Texas. They have no integrity and O'Rourke made a point of proving it. And then there was this from Andrew Pollack, The father of a teenage victim of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting:

"They didn’t learn anything from what happened in Texas at that school shooting, they didn’t learn anything from what happened in Parkland at that shooting, they didn’t learn anything from what happened at Sandy Hook," Pollack explained. "When you focus on just gun control this is what happens. It’s happened again."

Honorable Mention:

Jacob Albarado :  A U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent, who was off duty and at his barber’s when he got a text from his wife to alert him that she, a teacher, and their daughter, a student, at Robb Elementary School were under threat from an active shooter. Albarado borrowed a shotgun from his barber and raced to the scene.

When you can recognize THAT as the truth, get back to me.

In the meantime, spare me your stupid-ass memes.

Why don't you ever want to talk about the Biden economy anymore?

Can't defend it any longer, or justify the record inflation?

You have remained strangely silent about it for over a month now, especially compared to how you were trumpeting how GREAT it was just a few short weeks ago!

I've got a fact for you...    Almost nobody actually watches Fox News.

8pm is their most watched hour.  Last night, about 3 million people watched Tucker Carlson.  83% of those were over 55.  Some non-trivial portion of that number are liberals scouting the enemy.  (The ONLY way I ever know about what Tucker Carlson says is when some outraged liberals tells me about it.)

So over 99% of Americans had something better to do.

Just because money is earned, bares no SUCCESS at happiness in spending it. Just ask those conservatives dead with Covid/gun violence. As I have explained and will continue to do so, as you have heard it often in this life, but choose not to internalize it (for others not like yourselves): Money can't buy happiness or a life without sickness and death.

Keep gun proliferation around and random shooting will eventually garner somebody you are concerned (have regard for). Right now, it is evidential that you don't give a shake of a rat 'butt' for what I am concerned about. But, I do care about you—on many, many general levels.

Lastly, the stock market is dynamic ("up/down") so don't get cocky before you "EAT."

Finally, Texas has a 'gun problem' —didn't see that coming?

I think I mentioned to you before not to mention any of my orifices in your comments. Now if you do it again I will see it as a virtual assault and unleash the force of the Kracken!

Donald Trump? You don't have to mention him! He saturates the 'airspace' all around his supporters. I thought you knew. How come you don't. When I read your comments Trump is 'indefinitely' present—as if it was campaign season 2020 and you were insultingly writing about an 'impending' Trump victory or if failure, going for 'bust' with so-called conservatives giving shots to the back of the head of liberals.

Well? You wrote it, don't blame me for reading and remembering it. (Thank you for not 'doing' it, . . . I guess.)

It seems that law enforcement in Uvalde can't get their stories straight. First a school security officer ''engaged'' the shooter yet no one in law enforcement could explain what that meant and how the shooter still got into the school. Yesterday law enforcement stated that no school security officer engaged the shooter and in fact there were none on the campus when the shooting took place. 

A number of parents have complained that they begged LEO's to go into the building to stop the shooter which they did not do and some of the parents tried to enter themselves and were stopped. Meanwhile, a law enforcement rep stated that the LEOs were in the building as the shooting took place. 

And today a report comes out that states that Texas police stopped fed agents from entering the building to stop the shooter.

FUBAR and the result is 19 dead children, 2 teachers and multiple wounded.

This one sadly is beyond repair at this stage. The main participants are dead and injured. Lawsuits are the order of the day! I don't say that with any glee either. I feel sorry for small town local police, because these mass shooting are sorta: "Big town level."

But, it is what it is. The national press is there and they are watching everything the small town police are doing, saying, and asking 'revealing' questions. In one sense I feel for LEOs who work to get it right but are not experienced or "well-versed" in all the moving parts to major disaster situations! And, how words can be spinned, jostled, and deeply scrutinized.

Two months ago, the Uvalde CISD Police Department held an all day Active Shooter for School-Based Law Enforcement.  The agenda included:

  • History of Active Shooter Events and Training Requirements 
  • Priorities of Action for School Based Law Enforcement 
  • Stop the Killing - Solo Response to Active Shooter Events
  • Unified Response 
  • Stop the Dying - Transition to First Aid
  • Active Shooter Event Scenario Training and Evaluation

Sunshine, I don't know that I am suspicious of reporting, per se, because reporting is what is: Fast, competitive, and sometimes 'dirty.' Which could explain why the media seems to be 'hot' at Uvalde Police communications officers (or staffing) because the narrative is wobbly and slow to stabilize—though reporting is continuous on a 24/7 cycle.

I know my granddaughter's elementary school became more relaxed about safety when returning from the COVID shutdown.

Before they had all doors locked all day and anyone entering the building could only enter through one main door and had to be buzzed in.  This entire school year most outside doors have been unlocked with people coming and going at will.

This will be a hard one to live with.

She went to school the day after this, elementary K-5 mind you, and she said a lot of the kids were scared shitless.

To get to the student side of the school the teachers need a passcode to get through the gate and they have armed resource officers. Any visitors must enter through the office side of the grounds

I don't think the estimated cost of around $400k is asking too much to protect students and teachers, and I know for sure I would support school bonds for it.

This is a REAL help in finding a solution and can be done while others bitch about laws and what-ifs and waiting on politicians to solve a problem they have done nothing about.

“An anonymous donor provided $175,000 to ensure that every cost of every family concerning anything about funeral services is going to be taken care of,”   Abbott said at a press conference   announcing resources for victims of the mass shooting in Uvalde.

"Police have been vilified nationwide these past two years for excessive use of force, so there’s no small irony in the criticism raining down on police in Uvalde, Texas, for waiting outside Robb Elementary School while Salvador Ramos was barricaded inside a classroom where he had murdered 19 children.

“The on-scene commander at that time believed it had transitioned from an active shooter to a barricaded subject,” Steven McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, said at a news conference on Friday. “Obviously, based upon the information we have, children in that classroom were at risk and it was in fact still an active shooter . . . It was the wrong decision. Period.”

The anger of parents is all the more acute because police blocked at least one mother from entering the school. Another mother went in on her own and escaped with her children.

It isn’t clear if charging the gunman sooner would have saved lives, but that is what we expect of law enforcement. In the event, a tactical team from Customs and Border Protection arrived, stormed the classroom, and killed Ramos. One of the agents was grazed in the head with a bullet, meaning he was a half-inch away from death.

No doubt police everywhere are asking themselves how they would behave under such circumstances. But the terror in Uvalde is a reminder that, especially in these days of violence, we need the bravest to take those risks. And we need to give them the training, and the public support, to do so."
