After a three-year rise in murders, 2017 was the most violent year in Mexico’s recent history.The more than 29,000 murders registered by the National Public Security System represented a 27 percent jump from 2016, and a nearly 60 percent increase since 2014.As is usually the case, organized crime was the chief driver of this wave of bloodshed.
And Rasmussen finds that 54% think massive government failures are mostly to blame for the Parkland, Florida shootings, while only 33% blame a lack of gun control.It's one poll and we always like to see more than one finding. Nevertheless, the poll makes sense. In other words, people don't automatically blame guns when a shooting occurs. My guess is that the public understands that this is a lot more complicated than just blaming guns.
Interestingly, the finding is even more pronounced among those who have school-age children: 61% think government is mostly to blame, while only 23% point the finger mostly at guns.
The Democratic memo devotes considerable space to smearing the hapless Mr. Page, as if he’s some kind of master spy and the Rosetta Stone of the Trump-Russia story. Yet no one has offered proof that he colluded with the Russians, and he hasn’t been indicted.Democrats also make much of the fact the FBI started looking into the Trump campaign in July 2016 but didn’t receive “Steele’s reporting” until “mid-September.” So what? The issue here is the fairness and honesty of the FISA application in late October (not the investigation), and what matters is that the FBI didn’t move on the FISA application until after it received the dossier.***The only definitive evidence of political “collusion” so far is that the Clinton campaign paid Mr. Steele to troll his Russian sources for dirt on Donald Trump. The FBI then used this dirt as a reason to spy on Mr. Page and anyone he was communicating with. Imagine how the press would be playing this story if the roles were reversed[.]
The Supreme Court DID NOT say anything about DACA.....it simply said that the appeal process should continue.....This is not a victory for DACA or Democrats.....it is all about process and nothing more.........— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) February 27, 2018
Thank you to FedEX for keeping politics out of its marketing decisions........US corporations should stay out of politics over the NRA or they will suffer a backlash......just ask CBS and the Grammy's ratings........or look at Delta and the Georgia legislature.........— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) February 27, 2018
Big win for the border wall. A federal judge ruled against an environmental challenge to President Trump’s border wall....it means that the Trump administration will move forward with construction plans.— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) February 27, 2018
Feinstein, the oldest member of the Senate at 84, is seeking a sixth term.Feinstein took heat last fall from some on the left after appearing to voice optimism about Trump becoming “a good president.” Feinstein also recently said that former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, which Trump is ending, was on shaky legal ground.DACA provides a level of amnesty to certain illegal immigrants [sic] – many of whom came to the U.S. as children.Still, Feinstein will be difficult to beat, considering her establishment support and standing among independents and women, two key voting blocs.“It will be tough to outflank her in that capacity,” Ben Tulchin, a San Francisco-based pollster, recently said.
Once in a while, city mayors issue warnings.........but the mayor of Oakland decided to warn illegal aliens about ICE coming.......that's pretty incredible.......isn't that called "harboring"?........Didn't this mayor take an oath to uphold the law?— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) February 26, 2018
Maybe PM Trudeau needs to rethink his next trip & wardrobe.........he should represent Canada's geopolitical interests abroad and not much more...........— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) February 26, 2018
US Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy can't win medals but he can bash Ivanka......not very smart!— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) February 26, 2018
Gun control advocates like to note that there has been no mass public shooting in Australia since the buyback. But they are simply picking out a country that happens to “prove” what they want it to prove.European countries such as Belgium, France and the Netherlands have even stricter gun control laws than Australia does, but their mass public shooting rates are at least as high as those in the United States.During the Obama administration, the per capita casualty rate from shootings in the European Union was actually 27 percent higher than the U.S. rate.
Killers continue targeting locations where guns are not allowed. Ninety-eight percent of public mass shootings in this country occur in gun-free zones – the Florida school being one of them.No wonder that 81% of police officers support arming teachers and principals, so that the real first responders – the potential victims – can protect the children.
Democrat Connor Lamb is holding firm in his belief that Congress doesn’t need to pass stricter gun control laws following the school shooting in Florida, insisting the best way to deter these kinds of horrific events is to enforce the laws on the books.The stance puts Mr. Lamb in line with President Trump and the candidate’s Republican rival Rick Saccone in the special congressional race here in western Pennsylvania, which is doubling as the first electoral test of post-Florida gun politics.
Wonder what those red-state Democrats think of that "bash the NRA" travesty last night at CNN? My guess is that this hour long bashing of the NRA will not play well in Montana, NDakota, Missouri, Indiana, West VA & Alabama...and all of those rural districts between the coasts.— Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) February 22, 2018
In the darker corners of the internet dwells a theory as outlandish as it is compelling: That the real father of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.The theory falls apart after only a cursory look at the historical evidence, but it persists for one reason alone: Justin Trudeau’s appearance is strikingly similar to that of the late Cuban dictator.“Preposterous!” Canadian historian Robert Wright told the National Post. (He also requested that the word ‘preposterous’ be printed in bold and italic).Wright’s 2007 book, Three Nights in Havana, is an account of the relationship between Castro and Pierre Trudeau. While the Trudeaus did indeed develop an unusually cozy relationship with the Cuban dictator, Justin Trudeau was already toilet-trained by the time his mother, Margaret Trudeau, first met Castro in 1976.“Their biographies just don’t intersect at all,” said Wright.
