NRA Donations 3X after Parkland Shooting

Reports from the Federal Election Commission show donations to the NRA tripled from January to February.

In January, the NRA collected almost $248,000 in individual contributions.

In February, they collected more than $779,000.

The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics tracked itemized contributions that include donations of $200 or more by an individual in the days before and after the shooting and found that in the two weeks after the shooting, itemized contributions to the NRA doubled from the previous two weeks. On top of that, the number of people contributing in the seven days after the shooting increased almost 500% from the week before.

Since the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the folks on the left have constantly targeted the NRA instead of pointing out the failures of the law enforcement and the FBI, mental illness, bullying culture or the perpetrator himself.

THROWBACK: Alex Jones Obliterates Piers Morgan on Gun Control

In 2013, Piers Morgan invites Alex Jones to discuss his petition to deport Piers to the UK for using his show as an outlet for this anti-gun rhetorics in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook.

Alex Jones created a petition that states, “his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.”

Piers Morgan, who is a UK citizen, brings his outlook by stating the comparatively low number of gun deaths in the UK. Jones then call him out for only mentioning gun deaths in the country where guns are already banned and not mentioning the overall deaths in the UK, which is the main point of discussion.

Jones states that even though the gun sales have spiked in the US in the past 9 years, violent crimes have dropped by 20 percent. Meanwhile, in the UK, the overall violent crimes have tripled in the past 15 years.

Although Piers didn’t get to talk much as Alex would be pounding him consistently, but whenever he did, he repeatedly tried to compare “Gun Crimes” of US to the “Gun Crimes” of the UK. Alex repeatedly corrects his false equivalency by stating that the goal of a nation should be to reduce overall violent crimes and not just “Gun Crimes” as it is obvious that the number of gun crimes would be insignificant in the countries where guns are banned. The question is whether banning guns would decrease the overall crime rates in the country.

The interview mostly turned out to be Alex getting emotional and shouting at Piers. Although Piers remained unusually calm, he was unable to refute Alex’s statistics and whenever he tried, Alex would bury his with facts.

It definitely would have been more appealing had Alex been as calm as the first 90 seconds and hit Piers with facts without getting emotional. But we know how Alex is.

https://rumble.com/embed/v1zguj/Jones’ petition garnered more than 106,000 signatures at White House’s official website. A counter-petition, which demands the U.S. “Keep Piers Morgan in the USA,” had more than 9,000 signatures. Both the petitions have been removed later.

FIFA May Deny The US Bid To Host The World Cup

According to ESPN, FIFA, the governing body of Football (Soccer) says it may deny a joint US/Canada/Mexico bit to host the 2026 World Cup because some of the members do not like Donald Trump.

“The North American bid has had to counter an anti-American sentiment that stems largely from actions taken by President Donald Trump’s administration.” was told to ESPN by some sources close to the members of FIFA.

ESPN points that those demur have come from nations affected by Trump’s temporary travel ban, which also happen to be state sponsors of terror organizations whom Trump allegedly referred to as “sh***ole” countries.

The Daily Wire wrote:

A report on the Qatari World Cup construction effort from the International Trade Union Confederation alleged that thousands of migrant workers were mistreated and even killed while building Qatar’s World Cup stadium. The same report also suggests that Qatar is using a “guest worker” system that is akin to slavery, using indentured servants sent from other countries, like North Korea, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, who are stripped of their passports and forced to toil in horrific conditions.

The answer is simple: FIFA’s issues with the United States don’t stem from Donald Trump, he’s merely a convenient excuse. They’re really angry about the American Department of Justice, which indicted more than two dozen of FIFA’s top officials for bribery, racketeering, and corruption — a conspiracy that originated with FIFA’s decision to award the 2018 World Cup to Russia and the 2022 World Cup to — yes — Qatar.

Jennifer Lawrence Says She’s Taking a Year Off From Acting To ‘Fix Our Democracy’

Liberal activist, actress Jennifer Lawrence said she’s taking a year off acting to “Fix our democracy”

Yep. The Anti-Trump actress said that she’s going to be working with the far-left organization, Represent.Us.

Lawrence said, “It’s just trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level. It doesn’t have anything to do with partisan [politics]” she added. “It’s just anti-corruption and stuff trying to pass state-by-state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy. And then I don’t know what I’m doing next.”

According to the Washington Times, the 27-year-old visited Ohio high school late last month to teach a class about political corruption. Yeah, you read that right. It’s unsure whether she is deemed to be qualified to lecture in the High School because she is a Hollywood actor or a cast in the Hunger Games since the left-leaning organizations love to talk about qualifications and authority.

The entire “Creative Council” of her group comprises of Hollywood actors, producers and musicians of the left-wing persuasion, including “Supernatural” actor and outspoken anti-Trumper Misha Collins, “Scandal” star Kerry Washington and ultra-liberal Hillary Clinton supporter Elizabeth Banks. But “Represent.Us” ironically claims to be a bipartisan organization seeking to end “secret money” and corruption in America’s election system.

School Shooting Survivors Praise President Trump

On Wednesday, survivors and families affected by school shootings gathered at the White House to speak with President Trump.

Trump gathered the families and students in the State Dining Room at the White House and listened as participants took turns on the microphone. Students at Stoneman Douglas High School have been at the forefront of the gun debate, with some criticizing Trump and Republicans for not doing enough to stop school shootings. Although, criticism was non-existent for the president at the White House.

A student named Jonathan told the President, “Thank you for everything. You’ve done a great job. I like the direction you’re going in.”

Hello. I’m Jonathan. I go to Stoneman Douglas. I was actually in the second classroom that was shot at. In my mind, as a kid nothing that horrible should ever have to happen to you. You can’t even think about it. It doesn’t even seem real still. Everything seems fake. I can’t even — I don’t know what is going on. It’s just crazy. Everything happening. It’s just so tragic. Thank you for everything. You’ve done a great job. I like the direction you’re going in. Thank you.

Another student named Ariana said, “I would like to say thank you for leading this country. You’re a great leader. I appreciate your direction that the country is going in.”

My name is Ariana. I would like to say thank you for leading this country. You’re a great leader. I appreciate your direction that the country is going in. I’m a junior. I attended Stoneman Douglas. I want to say that everybody right now is so stuck on what they believe, that they’re not listening to what other people believe. We need to listen to the other points of views. We all need to realize that we all have different points of views and that we need — this solution is not a singular thing.It’s going to be multifaceted and created by a collection of different people working together. We all have to realize that we all have our opinions and together we’re going to be able to work to a solution. This is not just parkland’s anymore. This is America. This is every student and every city and everywhere. It’s everybody. It’s not small. It’s everything. Thank you for having us.

Kamala Harris Horrified By “Slaughter Of Babies”

California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris used the mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School to call for gun control.

She was among many democratic lawmakers who used the school shooting in Florida to justify gun control. She tweeted on Thursday calling for the end to the “slaughter” of babies and that gun control “cannot be a political issue” because “our babies are being slaughtered.”

On the contrary, just a few weeks ago, the “pro-choice” senator Harris tweeted that a “20 week abortion ban” was a “constitutional right” and “everyone should be shouting about this.”

There have been over 60 million abortion in the United States since Row vs. Wade passed in 1973, estimates the National Right to Life.

ISIS Flag Raised At Utah High School

ISIS flag appeared in place of the American flag at a high school in Hurricane, Utah on Thursday morning. Hurricane police have been working with the FBI to determine why the flag had been raised. A spokesman for the Hurricane Police Department, Ken Thompson, said authorities don’t know if the perpetrator was a student or an outsider. After hours of investigation and analysis by federal agents, authorities ruled out the possibility that actual ISIS affiliates raised the flag.

“Officers have received tips this morning and they’re following those leads, and so far they haven’t generated a credible lead, but tips can help us out a lot,” he said.

Authorities ruled out the possibility that actual ISIS affiliates raised the flag after hours of investigation and analysis by federal agents,

“[B]ased on information we received from the FBI we do not believe this act was perpetrated by someone linked to the Islamic State,” Hurricane PD said in a statement. “This investigation is ongoing and investigators will continue to follow-up on leads.”

It’s unknown whether the act had any ideological motivation or was just a stunt. At the same time, a wall of the school had been spray-painted with the words “ISIS is COMI.”

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, “The graffiti has been removed, as has the flag bearing the terrorist group’s black and white symbol. A new American flag has been hoisted after the old one, left on school grounds, was damaged, the release said.” School has also resumed classes as usual with no plans for any emergency sessions. Police do not believe students are in any danger.
