Former Broward County Deputy Scot Peterson Who Failed To Confront Parkland Shooter Arrested For ‘Inaction’

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Somewhere in heaven, the victims of the Parkland shooting are smiling. Former Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson was taken into custody today after a 15-month investigation into his actions, or should I say ‘inactions’, during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. His cowardice got students and faculty killed that fateful day and this is justice that has been a long time coming.

Peterson now faces seven counts of neglect of a child, one count of perjury and three counts of culpable negligence. As far as I’m concerned, he should have been charged as an accomplice to those murders – all of them. I have no doubt he’ll be found guilty on all charges and is going away for a very long time… and we all know just how well a disgraced cop does in prison. There will be more justice coming his way behind bars.

“The FDLE investigation shows former Deputy Peterson did absolutely nothing to mitigate the MSD shooting that killed 17 children, teachers and staff and injured 17 others,” Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen told WCTV. “There can be no excuse for his complete inaction and no question that his inaction cost lives.”

From The Daily Caller:

“On February 14, 2018, seventeen people were gunned down at the high school despite Peterson being on campus at the time of the shooting. There is video that shows him waiting outside the building instead of trying to confront the shooter.

“I was pleased the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in conjunction with the State Attorney’s Office conducted a thorough investigation that yielded the arrest of Scot Peterson. All the facts related to Mr. Peterson’s failure to act during the MSD massacre clearly warranted both termination of employment and criminal charges. It’s never too late for accountability and justice,” Sheriff Gregory Tony said to WCTV.”

And from TheBlaze:

“On Feb. 14, 2018, 14 students and three adults were murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and 16 others were injured. While the attack was ongoing, Peterson, then a school resource officer, was on campus. He chose to take cover instead of trying to confront the attacker, a disgruntled former student. He also ordered other police officers to stay back away from the building.

“Peterson would later defend his actions, telling NBC News in June 2018 that he was “sorry” about what happened but that he had been “trying to do the best I could with no information or intel at the time…and it was just happening so fast.”

“But evidence released later that same year, including audio from Peterson’s police radio, and a video that tracked the relative positions of both Peterson and the shooter painted a different story. At a Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission meeting in September, commission chairman and Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said that this proved that Peterson not only made no effort to help but also slowed the response of other law enforcement units.”

Peterson was both fired and arrested today which calls for a Snoopy Dance. Then he was booked into the BSO Main Jail. He deserves everything he gets for hiding while those students, staff, and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida were gunned down. No sympathy here for such a craven coward.

Fourteen students and three adults lost their lives that horrible day. Not only did Peterson not help them, he actively hid and kept others out as well while the massacre took place. Peterson’s case will be handled by Assistant State Attorney Tim Donnelly. Let’s hope they throw the book at the guy… in fact, throw all of them at Peterson.

One Man’s Journey From Revolution to Redemption

When President Donald Trump canceled former President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran—and, more recently, ordered the U.S. State Department to add Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to the list of designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations—it was an ironic but redemptive moment for a Southern California psychotherapist and Buddhist teacher named Marv Treiger.

On June 11, 1964, the United States’ main ally against Soviet expansionism in the Middle East, the last Shah of Iran, addressed a graduation ceremony at the University of California–Los Angeles before receiving an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree. The Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, spoke of the need for social reforms in his country and the need to overcome “traditional” resistance. Like Turkey’s Kemal Ataturk before him, the Shah was attempting to modernize and partially secularize Iran in the face of opposition from both Islamic traditionalists and Soviet-backed communists.

The ceremony was marred by protests organized by the Iranian Students Association and an airplane flying overhead trailing an anti-Shah banner. The plane circled continuously, and the police were forced to deploy helicopters to force it down, but not before a “dogfight” ensued above the open-air ceremony.

For the pilot, the job was nonideological. He was paid in cash, and no one was ever held responsible for the stunt that made headlines across the nation.

Until now.

Schiff & The Dems: Can They Really Be That Clueless?

By: Frank Salvato

Have you ever known one of those people that believe they have come to a conclusion independently even after you have stated that very conclusion repeatedly and ad nauseam? That appears to be the case with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (P-CA). That he is just now expressing that impeachment would result in nothing but further damaging the country makes him either arrogantly tone-deaf or politically stunted in his intellect.

Appearing on ABC’s This Week, Schiff finally came to the same conclusion that the overwhelming majority of Americans came to when Progressive-Fascists started the impeachment drum-thumping even before Mr. Trump was elected President: House Democrats could achieve impeachment but the move would fail because there isn’t enough support for impeachment in the GOP controlled Senate; the very place the trial would have to take place.

Impeachment “is destined for failure,” Schiff said. “I think we’re going to do what is right for the country, and at this point, the speaker has not reached the conclusion, and I haven’t either that it’s the best for the country to put us through an impeachment proceeding that we know will, is, destined for failure in the Senate.”

He went on to say that because Republicans in the Senate refuse to sign on to the effort (due to the fact the GOP believes impeachment is a transparent and pathetic political move to deflect from the do-nothing platform Democrats have saddled themselves with for 2020) they present as “the cult of the president’s personality.”

Fraud/Theft On Govt Contractor For Puerto Rico Hurricane

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Not only do individuals not do the research and proper vetting of people and information, but when the federal government is guilty, things are really bad. The federal government has people, technology and the resources to get it right when it comes to spending taxpayer dollars but again, we get fleeced.

So we have this cockamamie contractor that in the end was just not real and no one up or down the system was able to figure that out. So, 475,000 tarps that were to be delivered to Puerto Rico never happened but the money… well, that is gone too. Yikes.

Just for fun, read the contract here.

Now for the story that began burning in 2017 and continues.

Hey Social Media, Here Comes Anti-Trust Scrutiny

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

It has started with Google and this site has warned users of the Internet to stop using Google for years for various reasons. Now there are more. Oh, the Department of Justice may not stop with Google, so watch out Facebook, Yahoo News, Apple, Amazon, and Twitter. Why?

Have you noticed how twisted news stories are? Have you noticed selective search engine results? Have you noticed search intrusions? Have you noticed censorship that may affect politics, truths or even voting habits?

Well, it begins with these social media/tech companies stopping competition, free speech and lying by omission. Reliance on these investigative activities begins with the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. This is a law where the Federal government opposes monopolies when it comes to contracts, trade, and commerce. Add in the Federal Trade Commission Act and consider the timing as we move towards the 2020 General Election(s).

A short definition of the Anti-trust Laws is found here.

In part from C-Net:

The move by the Justice Department comes as Google and other Silicon Valley giants face renewed antitrust scrutiny in the United States. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Democratic 2020 presidential candidate, has made it a key part of her platform to break up the big tech companies, including Google, Facebook, and Amazon. Earlier this month, Chris Hughes, a Facebook co-founder, also called for the breakup of the company he helped create.

In February 2018, President Donald Trump had signaled via his Federal Trade Commission leadership choice that he was open to investigating big tech companies.

Former US Attorney General Jeff Sessions last September reportedly met with state attorneys general to discuss whether Google and Facebook could be suppressing conservative views, after forming a task force to look into problems in the tech industry. However, once Sessions stepped down in November, the plan to follow up with the Justice Department was shelved.

The Journal report follows reports in March that Google could be facing an investigation over violations of antitrust or consumer protection regulations.

Google has also faced antitrust pressures from regulators in Europe. In March, the search giant was hit with a $1.7 billion fine from the European Commission for “abusive” online ad practices. The Commission said Google exploited its dominance by restricting its rivals from placing their search ads on third-party websites.

Last year, the EU’s executive arm fined Google a record $5 billion for unfair business practices around Android, its mobile operating system. The investigation focused on Google’s deals with phone manufacturers, requiring them to preload specific Google apps and services onto Android phones. After the EU announced the fine, Trump tweeted, “I told you so.”

***

Earlier Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Federal Trade Commission will examine how Facebook’s practices affect digital competition. The Washington Post reported over the weekend that Amazon has come under heightened scrutiny by U.S. regulators. And on Friday, the Journal reported that the Justice Department is preparing a probe of Google, sending shares of parent company Alphabet down more than 7% Monday.

The possible Apple probe is linked to the Google probe, Reuters reported and stems from meetings between the DOJ and the FTC.

The headlines together paint a daunting picture for Silicon Valley and the stock market’s most valuable companies. Big tech has long faced scrutiny from European regulators but has so far shrugged off calls for government regulation in the U.S.

Apple has drawn increased criticism in recent months for what some — including streaming giant Spotify — see as anti-competitive behavior in the App Store. Apple owns and operates the online marketplace, collecting subscription fees from developers.

The so-called “Apple tax” accounts for a sizable percentage of Apple’s burgeoning services revenue segment, but draws the ire of developers who, in some cases, compete with Apple’s own apps in the store.

Spotify’s EU complaint against Apple, filed in March, is pending investigation by European authorities. More here.

Meet NIAC, Iran’s Lobby in America

The Trump administration has been taking a long overdue hardline stance against Iranian terrorism and subversion. However, a shadowy Washington-based, pro-Iranian lobbying group is working under the radar with leftist Democrats to undermine the president’s policies.

The National Iranian American Council (NIAC) is working to elect sympathetic congressional candidates and seeking to influence presidential candidates to benefit the Iranian regime.

While NIAC maintains that it works independently of the Iranian government, many credible commentators beg to differ.

Update On My Husband’s Cancer Treatment – 05/31/19

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

We met with Garry’s surgeon and after inspecting things he says the only recourse is surgery.

The surgeon says all chemo has to be stopped and surgery is necessary now. If he did the full surgery there’s a 30% chance part of it would fail and have to be redone giving the tumor in Garry’s lung time to spread. So, he’s going to do a partial surgery and reroute the plumbing with a colostomy bag but not seal everything off at this point. Surgery should be in four weeks or so. We have to wait 6 to 8 weeks after the last chemo treatment to do the surgery.

Garry is in good spirits and is fighting this for all he is worth. Right now, his blood counts are good, his coloring improved, he’s lucid and feeling better. The only real pain is when he goes to the bathroom.

We are working on getting his little sister, our oldest daughter and our son-in-law here for the first surgery. It makes all the difference in the world to Garry in having them here.

If you want to help Garry out, one of our daughters put up a GoFundMe page and we are just over two-thirds of the way to our goal. You can donate here. You can also donate on PayPal. My email there is [email protected] or you can use the link on the upper right side of this site to get there. If you would like to donate some other way, email me at [email protected] and I’ll send you instructions.

Prayers are always appreciated and please pass this along to others on social media. As you know, I was banned on Facebook for being the editor of Right Wing News so I can’t post this there. It would be greatly appreciated.

We are within $100 of our goal – please help us cross the finish line and thank you to all who have so generously given in donations and prayers!

Is Teen Vogue Teaching Your Daughter Marxism and Revolution?

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

One of the most insidious communist propaganda outlets in the country is a website targeted at high school-aged girls: Teen Vogue.

While no longer a glossy magazine like its long-established adult counterpart Vogue, Teen Vogue reaches hundreds of thousands of young Americans weekly through its website. Among the beauty tips, celebrity gossip, and “provocative” feature articles, Teen Vogue’s readers can enjoy a steady stream of propaganda that would make openly communist online magazines—such as the Communist Party USA’s “People’s World” or the Party of Socialism and Liberation’s “Liberation”—blush.

According to a “brand overview” information sheet released by Teen Vogue’s parent company Conde Nast, teenaged girls who read the online magazine are “3x more likely to be an activist.”

The document (pdf), headlined “A New Generation Disrupting the Conversation,” continues: “Teen Vogue is the premiere destination for the young and unapologetic. … We aim to disrupt the conversation by educating, enlightening and empowering the next generation, in every step we take.”

A leader of America’s largest Marxist group recently praised Teen Vogue.

Update On My Husband’s Cancer Treatment – 05/19/19

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Garry’s white blood cells finally bounced back some and then dropped again. His red blood cells were at 8.1 last week which triggered another transfusion. Two days after that on Friday he was at 7.8. The doctor wants to know where the blood is going and another transfusion of two units of blood should occur tomorrow. We have also increased his pain killers.

The cancer doc has stopped Garry’s chemo treatments for now. He’s completed two out of five but they are just too harsh on him. He would up in a wheelchair and is now mostly bedridden and I am taking care of him. His pain levels in the bathroom are off the charts but when he is lying down the pain mostly goes away.

The doc says we have to get the pain under control and after looking Garry over they think he has a wound rectally. They have to heal that because he could get a massive infection from it. So, not only will Garry see a wound specialist this week, he will meet with his surgeon.

Surgery will happen either this week or next week and Garry will be in the hospital three or four days at least. After the tumor is removed and a bag is attached most of the pain should be gone and he can heal and continue with treatments. He still has to have a cyberknife surgery on his lung as well.

Garry is in good spirits and has a good appetite even though he has lost more than thirty pounds now. He’s joking, lucid and alert.

If you want to help Garry out, one of our daughters put up a GoFundMe page and we are just over two-thirds of the way to our goal. You can donate here. You can also donate on PayPal. My email there is [email protected] or you can use the link on the upper right side of this site to get there. If you would like to donate some other way, email me at [email protected] and I’ll send you instructions.

Prayers are always appreciated and please pass this along to others on social media. As you know, I was banned on Facebook for being the editor of Right Wing News so I can’t post this there. It would be greatly appreciated.

Although Garry’s journey through this has been rough, we wholeheartedly believe he will get through it. Thank you to all of you for your prayers and donations. The GoFundMe account is not at $4729 of the $6000 we need to raise.
