Mark Armstrong’s Weekly News Commentary – 16 February 2018

Greetings from Tyler,

There’s only one story this week, and you know what that is.  All other news is either not happening or unimportant as the media obsesses, hour after hour, day after day.  Most mainstream outlets are outraged that gun control, which they imply could have prevented the Florida school massacre, hasn’t been enacted into law despite the Second Amendment of the Constitution.  One commentator called it the Constitutional Suicide Pact.

As the nation mourns the senseless killings of innocent students and faculty in Broward County, the press conferences, the interviews with witnesses and students have made one thing has become abundantly clear.  Dozens of people knew this kid, Nicholas de Jesus Cruz, was out of control.  He was brandishing weapons, wearing masks, talking “Allahu Akbar” all over social media.  He’d even expressed his intention to be a “professional school shooter,” and the F. B. I. had been notified!  But they weren’t sure they had the identity nailed down, so….  One girl, a student at the high school, said she “actually knew the shooter” because she’d been a friend of his half-brother who said he sat in his room practicing loading magazines into rifles, working the actions, dry-firing guns all the time.  The noise coming from his room was constant.  Everybody who knew this kid, or knew of him, knew he was a danger.

Now we hear the F. B. I. was notified a second time, with no confusion about the little freak’s identity or his location, and still did nothing.  Local Police had been called to his home dozens of times in recent years.  The kid was a local legend, and all said he was “a little off.”

Progressives scoff at the idea of armed security at schools.  Why, that would turn schools into “armed camps,” and then, who knows how bad things could get?  No, clearly in the minds of concerned anchors and commentators everywhere, the problem is GUN violence.  CNN decided they’d impose a rule at long last, no more mention of the names of mass murderers.  How convenient!  They sure didn’t mind the name Steven Paddock when it came to the Las Vegas massacre.  He was a middle aged white guy, and they couldn’t say his name or display his likeness often enough.  But the Hispanic kid, expelled from school, full of hatred, cavorting around brandishing guns and knives on social media bragging that he wanted to shoot people, it just wouldn’t be wise to mention his name.  Besides, it’s not about him, it’s about “common sense gun safety,” and the fact that the Trump administration has allowed, if not caused this massacre.  That’s their angle, and their sticking to it.

If the F. B. I. hadn’t committed untold manpower to obtaining fraudulent warrants, conducting surveillance of Hillary’s political rivals, chasing “the Russians” who supposedly “colluded” with Trump, they might have had time to check in on this hateful little killer before he acted.  But they obviously had much more important things to investigate.  There was no time to waste on the Hispanic kid who was all over social media, haunting Islamic fighter web sites, issuing threats expressing his desire to murder people.  No.  They had an administration to frame!  They’ve been busy issuing “anonymous government official” leaks to the media.  We’re finding out, little by little, drip by drip, that they’ve been behind the nightly “leaks” propelling the dialogue of Trump/Russia collusion for over a year.

One can only imagine the glee with which these “anonymous government officials” must have experienced as they watched their disinformation, designed to prompt suspicion of “treason” play out over every network day after day, month after month for over a year and a half.  Now we’re beginning to learn some of their names, and some of their former positions.  Many have resigned, been fired, or re-assigned to lowly posts.  Presumably, they’re not sleeping quite as well as they were after they watched their own “leaks” of inside information play out on screens all over the world for so long.

They say we have to maintain confidence and trust in the hard-working men and women who put their lives on the line to keep America safe.  But they couldn’t possibly look more inept, or corrupt.  The explanation for why the F. B. I. couldn’t follow up after being contacted by a bail bondsman who contacted them after he received the message over YouTube, the killer saying he wanted to be a professional school shooter?  Agents went and interviewed the bail bondsman who got the message, and then…  And then we get excuses, they couldn’t be sure of the identity.  And then, they looked no further.  They dropped it.  This is one of the vaunted “field offices,” you know, where they risk their lives every day to protect Americans.

Here’s the news.  America’s schools are already brimming with uncivilized third-world teenagers, many of whom will never master the English language.  Teachers, largely, teach that America is an evil entity, founded on racism and white supremacy.  They pound every leftist doctrine into their heads, ignoring or punishing every hint of dissent.  The “dreamers” are committing crimes and making babies like they’re going out of style.  Some are in graduate school, earning their PhD’s we’re told, but that’s not the common denominator by any means.  Does nobody see the documentaries, the true stories showing what life is like south of the Border, and south of there?  Is there no realization that the planet earth is brimming with human beings who have no education, no empathy, no respect for human suffering and no respect for life, period?

Do we want our grandkids in an insecure school, teaming with third-world specimens without conscience, weaned on the injustices of “white privilege,” demanding that the wealth be redistributed?!?  Take a look at the Florida school, and those nearby, wherever you may be.  Fundamental transformation has already arrived.  Imagine what it looks like ten years hence, when the “dreamers” and the “unaccompanied minors” have all produced seven or eight offspring just like them.  Careful, you might be a racist!
