  • Terrorist attack in Toronto gets comment on the Political Insider.

    Terrorist attack in Nashville gets crickets.


  • Sad commentary on all the nut cases we have running loose in this world and...they are just getting more numerous and nuttier each passing day. Is it all the drugs? The lazy parenting nowadays? What is going on? Let's open the mental institutions and put these people away NOW.

  • It would should have been stopped by a gun owner before the killer could take a shot, *but the FBI and Police FAILED TO PROTECT YOU AGAIN: The suspected gunman was identified as Travis Reinking, 29, from Morton, Illinois. He was arrested in July for allegedly breaching a barrier at the White House and demanding a meeting with President Donald Trump, officials said.Reinking had also threatened to commit suicide in May 2016 in a parking lot in Illinois and at the time his family told authorities he was having "delusions" involving Taylor Swift. He believed the singer was stalking him and harassing him, according to police records obtained by ABC News.* *Laws cannot even protect Trump himself. His 4th Amendment rights were violated when that law office was invaded by Mueller. We need our arms to protect us from a tyranny of Deep State bureaucracy refusing to do their job. "Dad" should have been told if he armed this killer, he would go to prison for murder, not given back those arms.*

    • The FBI and police were just following the rule put in place by the NRA lobbyists and their paid Congressmen. The guns should have been confiscated and destroyed when he jumped the fence to see President Trump. But Noooo... the NRA says he needs his "precious" guns back.

      Now we have four more dead Americans at the hands of a domestic terrorist.
