Florida Students Just Gave David Hogg And His Crew The Middle Finger…”First Of Its Kind” It’s Happening!!!

Now, this you won’t hear about much on the mainstream fake news media.

On Friday roughly 75 students in Brevard County, which is located around 160 miles north of Broward County, where the Parkland school shooting occurred on Valentine’s Day decided to stage another walk-out from school. But this walkout wasn’t to whine against guns after students confessed to severely bullying the shooter for over 3 years. This time it was in support of the second amendment.

The students confirmed the fact that school administrators had, in fact, denied their own pro-Second Amendment March several times but finally were given permission to walk out and rally on the Rockledge High football practice field in support the Second Amendment.

As they walked out they carried American Flags and various signed in support of guns, such as “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” and “I support the right to bear arms.” The national anthem and “God Bless America” by Larry Greenwood were played on loudspeakers at the beginning of the rally. One of the organizers and a junior at the school Anna Delaney spoke at the event, she said “We are not backing down. We aren’t taking no for an answer,” as the co-organizer Chloe Deaton added “We should not have our rights taken because someone else does something wrong. We are protecting the Second Amendment, and it should not be infringed upon.”

Delaney ended the short rally by reading a quote from President Ronald Reagan from a 1983 banquet for the National Rifle Association in which he said, “The Constitution does not say that government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms. The Constitution says ‘… the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.’”

Both of the organizers of this rally are part of Rockledge High’s Criminal Justice and Legal Studies Academy.

A group of students from Rockledge High School in Brevard County briefly walked out of class Friday to show their support for the Second Amendment, News 6 partner Florida Today reported.

About 75 students, according to a headcount by school administrators, walked onto the school’s track during third period carrying the American flag and signs that said “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” and “I support the right to bear arms.”

The event lasted about 20 minutes, and the students returned to class.

The demonstration was organized by Chloe Deaton, a sophomore, and Anna Delaney, a junior, who are part of Rockledge High’s Criminal Justice and Legal Studies Academy. Deaton is the daughter of Lindsey Deaton, community relations coordinator for Brevard Sheriff Wayne Ivey, a vocal supporter of instituting a volunteer marshal program to arm school staff.

Deaton, who was wearing a T-shirt that read, “my rights don’t end where your feelings begin,” said the event was meant to clear up misconceptions about the Second Amendment, not support or oppose any particular political stances.

After playing the national anthem and “God Bless America” over the loudspeakers, she told the group of students, “We were built on certain rights and that was one of the original rights: that we should have the right to bear arms.”

Delaney read a quote from former president Ronald Reagan, who, at a 1983 banquet for the National Rifle Association, said, “The Constitution does not say that government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms. The Constitution says, ‘… the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.’”

The walkout comes a few weeks after the National Student Walkout on March 14, when students from 2,800 schools across the United States walked out of class for 17 minutes. At least 15 schools in Brevard had walkouts, including Rockledge High School, where students stood on the football field to form a heart.

Deaton said it was important to make sure other students’ voices were heard. Some students who participated in Friday’s Second Amendment walkout wore camouflage clothing and President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hats. They carried “don’t tread on me” flags and black-and-blue-striped American flags that are often used to show support for law enforcement.

“It’s all over the news right now that all students hate guns. I wanted to show that not all students feel that way,” said Zachary Schneider, a junior at Rockledge.

Although organizers said the event was not endorsing any specific political beliefs, many students who participated said they do not support a new law that raised the legal age to purchase guns from a licensed vendor from 18 to 21, and they would support a marshal program to train and arm school staff to respond during an active shooter situation.

“I finally got old enough to buy my own ammunition and my own guns, and I lost it again,” Schneider said, referring to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act.

The Safety Act, which was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott in response to the shooting in Parkland, raised the legal age to purchase guns from a licensed dealer from 18 to 21; puts in place a three-day waiting period to purchase long rifles and other long guns; and bans the sale and possession of bump stocks, a device that makes a semi-automatic weapon shoot nearly as fast as a fully automatic weapon. The law also implements regulations to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill.

The Safety Act did not ban assault-style weapons, like the AR-15 Nikolas Cruz used to kill 14 students and three adults at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day, ignoring a call from some of the shooting’s survivors.

Daniel Howard, a freshman, compared banning some types of guns to banning spoons because they make people fat, cars because they make people drive drunk or pencils because they make people misspell words.

Event organizers and participants said they were disappointed that the student walkouts on March 14, marking a month since the Parkland shooting, turned political. Deaton said the original purpose of the student walkouts, which took place across the nation and in Brevard County, was to honor the victims of the shooting, but parents and social media warped the message to support gun control.

“In the beginning, it started as a memorial to the Parkland students. And that’s how it should have stayed,” Deaton said.

Walkouts in Washington and the March for Our Lives event on March 24 were organized by some of the Parkland students who survived the shooting. Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg — Marjory Stoneman Douglas students who have become the face of the movement for safer schools and tighter gun laws — have specifically called for a ban on assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines.

Unlike many of the students who turned out to march across the Eau Gallie Causeway as part of the local March for Our Lives rally in Melbourne, students at the Second Amendment Rockledge walkout on Friday said they support implementing a marshal plan to train and arm school staff.

“If they (school staff) are capable, we should allow it. They’re just going to tell us to hide during a school shooting?” John King, a junior, said in disbelief.

“I personally believe it’s a good idea as long as they’re trained and have the knowledge,” Delaney added.

Under the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, the state provided $67 million for local sheriff’s offices to develop programs to provide training to school districts, if local school boards approve the program. Before the law was passed, Ivey proposed a similar program to the school board that would train anonymous school employees who volunteer and allow them to carry a gun in a concealed holster on their hip. The school board has not taken a stance on the proposal yet.

Vickie Hickey, principal of Rockledge High School, said the school treated the event exactly like it treated the walkouts that took place March 14. She said both events were completely student-driven.

Liberals Livid After Trump Makes Announcement About Term Limits For Congress

Published

on

By

Liberals have another reason to be livid after President Donald Trump just made a shocking announcement about term limits for members of Congress. This is going to make a lot of career politicians nervous.

Career politicians have plagued our government for longer than anyone can remember. While there are some good apples in the bunch, many self-serving swamp creatures try their hardest to stick around Congress in order to build personal wealth and maintain power. Unfortunately, the end result is stagnation and underachievement for what should be a productive highly-paid group of “public servants.”

Now, President Donald Trump is taking aim at the career politicians in the Washington, D.C. swamp with a new announcement on Twitter. The President’s tweet comes just a week after he met with freshman lawmakers to talk about term limits and how they could be introduced into legislation.

“I recently had a terrific meeting with a bipartisan group of freshman lawmakers who feel very strongly in favor of Congressional term limits. I gave them my full support and endorsement for their efforts. #DrainTheSwamp,” Trump wrote.

According to The Times, Trump held a meeting in the Oval Office on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, with Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and other freshman lawmakers from both parties to discuss the possibility of imposing term limits on federal lawmakers.

The idea of imposing term limits is not new to Trump. During his presidential campaign, he said, “If I’m elected president, I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,” during a rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado in October 2016.

Following the meeting with President Trump, Fitzpatrick said he is hopeful that new legislation imposing term limits on federal lawmakers could gain momentum in Congress. Fitzpatrick said that the President was receptive to the idea of introducing legislation for term limits. Fitzpatrick said that he also told Trump that it was during his time working for the FBI that he saw a direct relationship between an official’s time in office and their propensity for corruption.

“We were all taking the same position: We need legislative term limits,” Fitzpatrick said of those participating in the meeting. The Pennsylvania Congressman characterized the lack of term restrictions as a “root issue” in political corruption and said that his goal is to put a 12-year cap on the time any politician can spend in Congress. Fitzpatrick is hopeful that the President’s legislative team can refine the proposals which were presented during their meeting to increase the chances for success.

“I told the president we’re not going to let the perfect be the enemy of the good,” Fitzpatrick said. He emphasized that the process of implementing term limits is a “heavy lift” that requires a Constitutional amendment.

Fitzpatrick campaigned successfully in 2016 on a push for term limits and is ramping up his message in preparation for the upcoming election in November where he is looking keep his seat in the House of Representatives. Fitzpatrick’s Republican primary opponent, attorney Dean Malik, also supports introducing term limits for members of Congress. Malik has stated that 18 years should be the cap for federal lawmakers. “Term limits are essential to prevent the growth of an entrenched political class,” Malik said.

The following is a clip of Fitzpatrick talking about term limits during his previous congressional campaign in 2016. In my opinion, this guy has it right when it comes to term limits. Our government needs a thorough overhaul of crucial policies, and term limits are exactly where we should start.

Fitzpatrick is looking beyond his meeting with the President to continue his push for term limits and said that the other members who were present — representatives Jodey Arrington, R-Texas, Vicente Gonzalez, D-Texas, Mike Gallagher, R-Wisconsin, and Ro Khanna, D-California — plan to create a bipartisan bill and press the issue in floor speeches in the future.

When Fitzpatrick was asked if a large incoming wave of freshman Congress members could be advantageous, he replied with optimism. “I sure hope so,” he said. “It’s always hard to get members of Congress to vote against their own self-interests.” Now, with the support of the President, I think that term limits can be introduced through the hard work of people like Fitzpatrick who realize that 12 years is plenty of time for a federal lawmaker to stick around.

Liberals Freak As Pence Arrives At Border With Special Message For Migrant Caravan

Published

Liberals are freaking out after Vice President Mike Pence made a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border with a special message for the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States. If you’re a “deplorable,” you’ll love every word of this.

According to Daily Caller, Vice President Mike Pence paid a visit to a group of Border Patrol agents on Monday, April 30, 2018. While Pence was visiting, he delivered a special message for not only the hard-working men and women who stand watch at our border but also for the migrant caravan making its way into the U.S.

“This is a time in the life of the nation where we are especially grateful for the tough job that your teams do on our borders and I want to assure you that President Trump and I are absolutely committed to seeing to the construction of a border wall but also reforming our immigration laws,” Pence said, according to the Desert Sun.

Next, Pence sent a message to the caravan of people who publicized their journey up through Mexico with the intention of entering the United States without regard for our laws. Some of those have reportedly begun the process of filing for asylum while others have been photographed climbing the border wall in defiance of our immigration laws.

“We’ve been watching with great interest the advance of the so-called caravan and are grateful for the efforts particularly over this weekend that our Border Patrol has been making and ensuring that those some 150 that are still part of the caravan are dealt with in a manner consistent with the law and that our laws are enforced,” Pence continued as he spoke during a meeting with Border Patrol agents in Calexico, California.

“A nation without borders is not a nation as President Trump has said many times, and the briefing we will have today, the remarks that I’ll share in a moment and the opportunity that we’ll have to be along that new section of border wall, give evidence to the fact that this is a President, this is an administration that is absolutely committed to border integrity and to the sovereignty of the United States,” Pence added.

I could not agree more with Vice President Mike Pence’s remarks in support of President Donald Trump’s position that a “nation without borders is not a nation.” In reality, the push from liberals to flood our country doesn’t stem from a lack of understanding about sovereignty. The left completely understands border security and the concept of lawful immigration. The problem is that those principles don’t fit their political agenda because they need illegal immigrants to help them build a new base of Democratic voters.

Democrats would be lining the borders with their own bodies as a human wall to keep out immigrants if they were sure to vote Republican. This isn’t about humanitarian efforts or an act of kindness for liberals, it’s about voting, and while they continue to push for open-borders, there is a price to pay.

Every year the taxpayers in our country foot the bill for the federal and state programs that provide housing, food, and education to illegal immigrants and their families. This tremendous burden has been placed on the backs of hard-working Americans by politicians who are only interested in keeping the flow of illegal immigrants coming into the country.

In exchange for carrying the burden of supporting millions of illegal immigrants, Americans have been given higher taxes, fewer jobs, and the nightmare of gangs like MS-13. These problems are just a few of the consequences that average Americans suffer.

It’s infuriating to see politicians push for destructive policies that promote illegal immigration while knowing that they themselves will never have to live in the communities which are negatively impacted. It’s time for Congress to honor the will of the people and fund Trump’s border wall.

After ‘Feminist’ Comedian Bullies Sarah Huckabee Calling Her Ugly to Her Face, Roseanne Knocks Her Out COLD

Published

AJR REPORTS: ROSEANNE BARR HAS HAD ENOUGH OF MICHELLE WOLF’S NASTY COMMENTS TOWARDS CONSERVATIVES AND DECIDED TO GIVE HER A FEW RULES OF COMEDY.

Michell Wolf was invited to the democrats White House Correspondent’s dinner to make the journalist laugh at the party. However, what started out as fun and laughter soon turned into criticism and lies.

Wolf’s initial attack was on Vice President Mike Pence and abortions. Michelle Wolf was joking about how everyone should try and have an abortion, and how you really got to knock the baby out of there… NOT FUNNY!

And this wasn’t even the most disgusting part of her attack. She then decided to bash two conservative women in Trump’s administration who were attending the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Ms. Wolf sure made herself look like a complete idiot in front of the entire White House. Roseanne Barr had the greatest comeback to Wolf’s jokes…

According to 100percentfedup:

First, she wished that a tree would land on White House Communications Director Kellyanne Conway:

“You guys gotta stop putting Kellyanne Conway on your shows. All she does is lie. If you don’t give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie.

It’s like that old saying, “If a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree? I’m not suggesting she gets hurt, just stuck.’”

Wolf saved some of her nastiest material, however, for White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, who was seated next to her at the podium:

“And of course, we have Sarah Huckabee-Sanders. We are graced with Sarah’s presence tonight. I have to say, I’m a little starstruck, I loved you as “Aunt Lydia” in “The Handmade’s Tale.” (laughter from the crowd) Mike Pence, if you haven’t seen it, you would love it.

I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s really resourceful. Like she burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s lies.

It’s probably lies.

I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee-Sanders? Is it Sarah-Sanders? Is it Sarah-Huckabee Sanders? Is it cousin Huckabee? Is it Aunti Huckabee-Sanders? Like, what’s Uncle Tom, but for white women who disappoint other white women? Oh, I know, ‘Aunt Coulter’.”

Surprisingly, some of the most biased journalists in the business expressed their disgust in Michelle Wolf’s “comedy act”.

Politco reporter Kyle Cheney got it right with this tweet:

Legendary female comedian, Roseanne Barr pointed out how liberals use women to attack and bully women, suggesting that the liberal press condoned Wolf’s embarrassing bullying of Sanders and Conway in front of a captive audience of liberal wolves. Barr tweeted: “they use women to attack and bully women.”

Johnny Argent used a great analogy about last nights vulgar comedian and the liberal journalists who clapped for her.

Barr then tweets the three rules of comedy. Although she didn’t address Wolf directly, it’s pretty clear who Barr’s three rules were meant for.

Here are Roseanne Barr’s three rules of comedy:
