Scot Peterson, disgraced Parkland school cop, starts getting $8,702-a-month pension

 Related image

Scot Peterson, a former deputy with the Broward County Sheriff's Office, has reportedly started to receive a hefty pension — three months after he retired amid the aftermath of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Peterson, a 33-year law enforcement veteran, was the resource deputy stationed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14 when 17 people were killed by gunfire.

As one of the largest mass shootings in modern U.S. history unfolded, Peterson never entered the building where alleged gunman Nikolas Cruz was opening fire and instead took up a position outside the building that was under attack.

Behind the Smokescreen: Hamas Unrest in Gaza

Via Billy

 Obviously insane.

From inside Gaza, the reality of the so called "peaceful demonstrations". Watch Hamas hate speeches. See how they build their propaganda at the expense of brainwashed, deceived and manipulated unfortunate people. Understand why Israel has no choice but to protect itself using lethal force.


 A quote from an 1899 book by Winston Churchill, "The River War," in which he describes Muslims he apparently observed during Kitchener's campaign in the Sudan:

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries.

Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities.

Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.

It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."

'I gave the US trucks and ammunition to Al Qaeda': The chaotic US effort to arm Syrian rebels

Via Billy


U.S. military equipment and ammunition, sent to Syria as part of a failed Obama administration plan to find and arm moderate forces to defeat ISIS, were instead simply handed over to an Al Qaeda group, according to the man who said he himself brokered the deal.

“I communicated with Al Qaeda’s branch, Al Nusra, to protect and safely escort me and my soldiers for two hours from North Aleppo to West Aleppo,” Maj. Anas Ibrahim Obaid, better known on the battlefield as Abu Zayd, told Fox News from his home in the western Aleppo area. “In exchange, I gave them five pickup trucks and ammunition.”

In Thor We Trust: Swedes Revive 'Back to the Roots' Viking Heathenry

Pre-Christian paganism is on the rise across Scandinavia, as more Swedes choose to rejoin the traditional faith of Thor and Odin, despite being habitually accused of nationalism and their symbols being "expropriated" by neo-Nazis.

Ancient pagan beliefs appear to be making a comeback in Scandinavia. The Nordic Asa-Community alone has grown to over 800 members over just a few years, whereas older communities are picking up in numbers as well, the newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported. The name of the faith, Asatro, translates as allegiance to the Æsir, a set of deities in Norse mythology.

'The Great Revolt'

 'The Great Revolt'

America's political experts got it wrong in 2016, not because they took too few polls but because they made the false assumption that American elections are immune to societal change.

The experts are, in large part, still getting things wrong, not only by failing to understand a new group of voters who put President Donald Trump in the White House but also by ignoring why the group voted the way it did.

When explaining the Trump voter, the media usually offer portraits of isolated, uneducated, working-class rubes who are driven by anger, race and nationalism. It's hard for the experts and those who didn't support Trump to see it any other way.

Fascinating pictures show America's first special forces troops being 'toughened up' by British commandos in the Scottish Highlands

Via David

Members of the US 1st Ranger Battalion were sent to Scotland to undergo commando training in June 1942

These fascinating photos reveal how America's first band of special forces had to be trained by hardened British commandos in the Scottish Highlands during the Second World War.

US President Franklin D Roosevelt feared his troops lacked combat experience as they entered the global conflict in the aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941.

He established a 'hit and run' group to be trained by the British elite commandos who had launched successful raids against the German held Lofoten Islands in Norway.

WALTER WILLIAMS: The Kanye problem for the Democratic Party

Via Billy

In the aftermath of the Kanye West dust-up, my heart goes out to the white people who control the Democratic Party. My pity stems from the hip-hop megastar's November announcement to his packed concert audience that he did not vote in the presidential election but if he had, he would have voted for Donald Trump. Then, on April 21, West took to his Twitter account, which has 28 million followers, to announce, "I love the way Candace Owens thinks." Owens is Turning Point USA's director of urban engagement and has said that former President Barack Obama caused "damage" to race relations in the United States during his two terms in office.

Swiss Citizens Refuse to Comply with International Gun Controllers

Switzerland Swiss Flag

As NRA-ILA reported on April 27, peaceful Switzerland is in the crosshairs of international and domestic gun control advocates who are intent on abolishing the idyllic nation’s tradition of an armed citizenry. Using the 2017 changes to the European Firearms Directive as justification, these foreign and home-grown forces are attempting to burden the tranquil republic with gun controls the Swiss people have continually rejected. However, as was pointed out in a recent Bloomberg article, many Swiss citizens are refusing to take this assault on their inalienable rights and national sovereignty lying down.

Mueller May Have a Conflict & Michael Avenatti has a very disturbing and possibly criminal past.

Image result for Mueller May Have a Conflict

 Mueller may have a conflict — and it leads directly to a Russian oligarch   In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007.  Yes, that’s the same Deripaska who has surfaced in Mueller’s current investigation and who was recently sanctioned by the Trump administration.

The Michael Avenatti Files: Court Documents Show Porn Star Lawyer Reported $8 Million Windfall in Feb. When he Took on Stormy   As attorney Robert Barnes has discovered Michael Avenatti has a very disturbing and possibly criminal past.   Avenatti is deeply in debt — Not just with his failed coffee company but with his law firm which failed to even file his law firm’s income tax returns for 2014, 2015, and 2016.  

On Thursday May 10th Michael Avenatti released a statement saying all fees and and expenses of his case with porn star Stormy Daniels “have either been funded by our client, Ms. Stephanie Clifford, or by donations from our crowdjustice.com page.

As attorney Robert Barnes reported earlier today in January 2018 Michael Avenatti got an unidentified source of income that allowed him to pay:

** $4.85 Million to his law firm employees he defrauded
** Close to $2 Million in back taxes for payroll taxes on his law firm
** Nearly another $1 million to other creditors

This occured at the same time he picked up a new client — Stormy Daniels.

The Only Thing Preventing Us From Descending Into Civil War: "They had convictions, and they died for them."

 Image result for free north carolina civil war bloody

We’re told that “division” and “partisanship” and “bigotry” are destroying America. “Hate" is the cancer in our cultural bloodstream, they say. We must fight against hate speech and hate crimes and hate in every other form. There is so much hate, allegedly. Some people are even worried that another civil war might be on the horizon.

I think we flatter ourselves. There will be no civil war. We’re far too lazy for such an onerous pursuit. It’s easier to snipe at each other in the comments section or shoot off insults on social media. We much prefer a tweet war to an actual war because tweet wars don’t interrupt a Netflix binge.

During the real Civil War, men marched over mountains in bare feet in the winter. They lived on salt pork and black coffee made from acorns. They charged headlong into cannon fire. They used whiskey as an anesthetic while they had their limbs amputated. They had convictions, and they died for them.
We do not have that kind of conviction.

Action Please: Easy copy & Paste: North Carolina Democrat Will Introduce a Gun Confiscation Bill

NC Rep. Marcia Morey, Durham Democrat

If Leftists in NC's General Assembly get their way, passage of “Gun Confiscation Order” laws could actually happen.

The Left obsesses over gun confiscation, even if they have to do it one person at a time. They have hit upon a new tactic of using “Gun Confiscation Orders” (GCOs) to seize someone’s property without due process or even their knowledge of what is to take place.

Rep. Marcia Morey, D-Durham plans on introducing a bill establishing these “Gun Confiscation Orders”.
