The day after the shooting on Thursday morning the local FBI chief responded to the reports of a threat shooter Nikolas Cruz made on YouTube in 2017.
Nikolas Cruz, the suspect in Wednesday’s horrific massacre at a Florida high school, was allegedly reported to the FBI in September after he left a comment on a bail bondsman’s YouTube channel saying that he was going to be a “professional school shooter.”
“Nikolas Cruz” posted this comment on YouTube.
On Thursday morning the local FBI chief Robert F. Lasky responded to reports of the online threat made by killer Nikolas Cruz.
Lasky: “We do not know if it was the same person. We, through our database checks, we could not positively identify him. We’re going back. We’re scrubbing the information. We’re looking at it again. I am not willing to say at this time that it was the same person.”
The YouTube comment was posted by “Nikolas Cruz” – spelled with a ‘K” – and yet the FBI said they didn’t know if it was the same person?
THIS WAS A LIE….
Killer “Nikolas Cruz” used his real name on YouTube.
Killer Nikolas Cruz ALSO used his real name on Instagram where his account is loaded with several photos of Cruz in a mask with a gun.
His Instagram account stretched back from 2015 through 2017.
Cruz likely used his real name and photos on Facebook too.
The account was taken down immediately after the shooting.
The FBI lied.
On that Friday the FBI admitted they dropped the ball on Nikolas Cruz.
And now two weeks later the FBI admitted they never looked into the YouTube threat by Nikolas Cruz. They never even called YouTube.
They didn’t call Facebook or Instagram either.
They didn’t bother.
And today 17 people are dead in Parkland, Florida.

McCarty introduced his bill after five California school districts chose to allow teachers and/or staff with concealed carry permits to be armed on campus to defend themselves and their students.
The five districts were Kern High School District, Kingsburg Joint Union High School District, Folsom Cordova Unified School District, Anderson Union High School District, and Palo Cedro’s North Cow Creek School District.
Breitbart News reported that McCarty justified his push to disarm teachers by saying, “A safe learning environment is essential for our children to be successful in the classroom. That’s not possible if a school district allows armed civilians to roam California school campuses.”
The Los Angeles Times reports that the Firearm Policy Coalition (FPC) opposed the bill and the idea of rendering teachers defenseless.
The FPC said: “The constitutional right to bear arms is based on the fundamental human right to self-defense. AB 424 undermines these very important principles based on little more than a whim.”
Brown also signed legislation expanding the list of persons banned from gun ownership in California. Newly prohibited persons include those found guilty of misdemeanor hate crimes.
That bill is aimed at people “using force or the threat of force to interfere with another person’s free exercise of any constitutional right because of the other person’s race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.”
California has universal background checks, gun registration, and firearms confiscation laws. The confiscation laws include a prohibited purchasers list, which Democrats have been steadily expanding as opportunities present themselves.

Just “Genius” This women without a doubt has DEMENTIA!……Papa Mike
In case you missed it, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is on a whirlwind national tour right now, making more than 100 stops around the nation to “educate” people on why the recent GOP tax cuts are such a terrible deal for less affluent Americans. This seems like a case of rather odd timing, particularly when you consider that even the New York Times was forced to concede this week that the country is, by and large, enjoying the results quite a bit. Perhaps Pelosi missed that or she may just be doing her best to fight the wave of approval with some opposition messaging.
SEE ALSO: Trump considering age limits on gun purchases?
During her stop in Phoenix, however, the hypocrisy on display became a bit too much for some in the crowd. Pelosi decided to lecture the audience on the evils of excessive wealth, invoking Martin Luther King Jr. to preach about God’s intentions regarding personal wealth. That might have been an inspirational moment in the right setting and coming from an appropriate speaker. But as at least some hecklers in the audience realized, they probably should have found somebody with at least a smaller collection of mansions to deliver it. (Washington Times)
House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s net worth was off limits Tuesday during a town hall meeting in which she cited Martin Luther King Jr. to condemn “inordinate wealth.”
After being asked about her net worth, Pelosi quickly shouted down the questioner, claiming that as a mother of five, she “can speak louder than anybody.” Here’s the too-good-to-miss video
You can say one thing for all of those rich Republicans at least. They’re generally neither shy nor apologetic about being successful. When Mitt Romney was hit on the campaign trail over his wealth, he simply told the country that he wanted them to have the chance to be just as well off.
Over 15 million Americans carry firearms legally, yet, very, very, very few ever have neglgent discharges, or do anything wrong with that weapon. Also, as Tom Knighton points out in districts that do allow armed teachers, there have been no incidents.
Do something? Yes, tighten background check records. And accept the reality that self-defense is a good thing, and that being a disarmed victim is not somehow morally supperior to be armed.

The cries of “do something” from the left have all been about curbing rights of the law abiding. This is all too predictable because the left never wants a good crisis to go to waste do they? But one Colorado school district is going to take steps that address the need for better security
The news following the Parkland massacre has focused primarily on efforts to impede the rights of people who had nothing at all to do with Parkland. The anti-gun left wants to inhibit the rights of law-abiding citizens in some misguided effort to stop the next shooting, which will still happen no matter what you do.
However, a small school district in Colorado is addressing the situation differently. They’re expanding gun rights in an effort to combat school shootings. And not just any expansion, but one that will directly impact these kinds of shootings.
A rural Colorado school district decided Wednesday night to allow its teachers and other school staff to carry guns on campus to protect students.
The Hanover School District 28 board voted 3-2 to allow school employees to volunteer to be armed on the job after undergoing training.
The district’s two schools serve about 270 students about 30 miles southeast of Colorado Springs, and it takes law enforcement an average of 20 minutes to get there. The district currently shares an armed school resource officer with four other school districts.
A man lost an arm when his golf cart rolled over on him on a downward
slope. He became very depressed because he loved to play golf
So one day in his despair, he decided to commit suicide and end it all.
He got on an elevator and went to the top of a building to jump off.
He was standing on the ledge looking down and saw this man down on the
sidewalk skipping along, whooping and kicking up his heels. He looked
closer and saw that this man didn’t have any arms at all.
He started thinking, “What am I doing up here feeling sorry for
myself? I still have one good arm to do things with.”
He thought, “There goes a man with no arms skipping down the sidewalk
so happy, and going on with his life.”
So he hurried down to the sidewalk and caught up with the man with no
arms. He told him how glad he was to see him because he had lost one
of his arms and felt useless and was going to kill himself. He thanked
him for saving his life and said he knew he could make it with one arm
if the guy could go on with no arms.
The man with no arms began dancing and whooping and kicking up his heels again.
The guy asked, “Why are you so happy anyway?”
He said, “I’M NOT HAPPY MY BALLS ITCH”!!!
Heartwarming stories like this can just bring a tear to your eye.
Great story Lee…..Thanks!
Bud and his truck
A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous
pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him
out of a cloud of dust. The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit,
Gucci® shoes, RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window
and asked the cowboy, “If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves
you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?”
Bud looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks at his
peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, “Sure, why not?”
The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell® notebook computer,
connects it to his Apple i phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the
Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his
location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the
area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.
The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop® and
exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany …
Within seconds, he receives an email on his Apple ipad® that the image
has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL®
database through an ODBC connected Excel® spreadsheet with email on
his Galaxy S5® and, after a few minutes, receives a response.
Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech,
miniaturized HP LaserJet® printer, turns to the cowboy and says, “You
have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.”
“That’s right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,” says Bud.
He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with
amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.
Then Bud says to the young man, “Hey, if I can tell you exactly what
your business is, will you give me back my calf?”
The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, “Okay, why not?”
“You’re a Congressman for the U.S. Government”, says Bud.
“Wow! That’s correct,” says the yuppie, “but how did you guess that?”
“No guessing required.” answered the cowboy. “You showed up here even
though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already
knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth
of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and
you don’t know a thing about how working people make a living – or
about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep.”
“Now give me back my dog.”
AND THAT FOLKS IS WHAT THE PROBLEM IS ALL ABOUT.
A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF LIBERALS WANTING TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN, “FROM CRADLE TO GRAVE”……….Papa Mike
But the case rests on the presence of trace amounts of a chemical and ignores the strongest evidence on coffee drinking.
In the coming months a judge in California will decide whether coffee should be listed as a possible carcinogen throughout the state. The court decision is the result of a 2010 lawsuit brought by an NGO, the Council for Education and Research on Toxics, against the biggest coffee sellers charging that the presence of trace amounts of a chemical pose a threat to the health of coffee drinkers.
The chemical in question is acrylamide, which is formed when coffee beans are roasted. Under California’s Proposition 65, businesses must notify the public if a product contains any of the 65 chemicals that have been linked to adverse health effects, including cancer and reproductive abnormalities.
Coffee is only the latest example of a trend that has become all too common. Activists who profess concern for human health and the environment latch on to an isolated finding – in this case the presence of trace amounts of a contaminant in coffee – and proceed to mount a well-orchestrated campaign to protect the public from the theoretical threat. In the process they use the issue to raise their profile and solicit funds. Similar campaigns have involved the herbicide glyphosate and genetically-engineered crops, BPA, and other substances.
The distinguishing feature of these campaigns is that they isolate a factoid from its scientific context and use it to instill fear in the public and to give bureaucratic regulators a new threat to regulate.
In the case of coffee, what is most egregious and problematic is that, while focusing on trace amounts of acrylamide in coffee and on the results of animal studies, the campaign ignores an abundance of solid evidence that has accumulated over decades concerning the health effects of coffee-drinking in humans. Even many commentators on this wrong-headed campaign fail to appreciate the weight of the epidemiologic evidence exculpating coffee.
Aaron Feis was the right man in the right place at the right time, but he was legally prevented from using the right, constitutionally protected tool to do the job. Mr. Feis was shot on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, shielding students from a killer with his own body. Ultimately, he and 16 other people, mainly students, died. Mr. Feis was truly a remarkable and courageous man.
Most media reports have focused on his after-school job as a Stoneman Douglas High football coach (here, here, here, here, and here) – but, on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Feis was doing his day job as a school guard. Mr. Feis was legally disarmed by the federal government in his attempt to save potentially dozens of children from murder. MORE
