Trump indictment charges paint ‘damaging portrait of reckless and criminal behavior’

The Justice Department unsealed the 49-page indictment against former President Donald Trump, revealing he faces …


  1. Oh my gosh, I love that lady gave her a big hug. That reporter really needed that. You tell she was having a hard time getting through that segment. ❤🩷🙏🏽

  2. Was that shooter a transgender too?

  3. The nation witnessed the vicious murder of small school children in Nashville, Tennessee an individual identified by police as Audrey Hale killed six people students, Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney, and employees Cynthia Peak, Catherine Koontz and Michael Hill_ in a murderous rampage in a Christian School known as the Covenant School. It is commonplace to call such horrors senseless violence but properly speaking, that is false. Police report that the attack here was "targeted"_ targeted, that is, against Christians.
    Federal law explicitly criminalizes acts of violence against individuals based on a religious affiliation as hate crimes.

  4. Joe Biden had such compassion with his heartfelt speech. Just kidding.


  6. Gun laws are perfectly fine. Its just how poor the school system is. They gotta capitalize on situations like this and see what they can do to prevent this (obviously by taking bullying serious and listening to the students if someone is in need of help).

  7. Gun violence is bad. Republicans want more guns and to eliminate red flag laws. Vote intelligently.

  8. She’s referring to Discovery Middle School. The victim was Todd Brown, my former classmate at Monrovia Middle School. His murderer was Hammad Memmon, who was my classmate and bully at Columbia Elementary School. I had transferred schools to get away from Hammad, because he was obsessive, but not as detached from reality as he would later be yet, and he would not leave me alone.

    I have lived every single day for the last 13 years with the knowledge that that decision, one my parents gave me, may have cost Todd his life.

    I had started writing, the week before the shooting. Just silly stuff, for fun… after the shooting, I kept going. With purpose, and knowledge that, if I have the talent, and the ability, I need to talk about the stuff I had to say. I kept going. Ended up studying the arts in college. Because, I guess… Todd’s death affected me so strongly. Still does. Here I am. About to get married. And yet, I am left wondering what life he would have led. The family he would have had. The parents who had to bury their own son. And the children traumatized by that day, now adults. It affected multiple schools. Those of us who knew Todd.

    But folks… there was a second School shooting nearby exactly one week later. Amy Bishop fired upon her coworkers at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, killing three, and injuring three others.

    To say the situation locally was intense was an understatement, but to say our the open wound of our trauma was ripped further open… accurate, if still understated. We didn’t have time to heal.

    One of my friends’ mom was a teacher at UAH. She knew the victims well. And the trauma was a contributing factor to my friend’s suicide in 2015.

    Every single school shooting, all I hear is thoughts and prayers. We don’t need that. We need actions, and change. And if Republicans think more guns are the answer, if they think oppressing people more is the answer, more children and teachers are going to die. People like Todd. Like these kids.

    It angers me that his death has so far been for nothing.

  9. Check out Crowder or Tim pool for the story with the fake corporate media narrative. The fake msm is the real enemy of the American Sheeple.

  10. Both the people in the frame here made my day better.

    Thank you.

  11. you just let her say it without checking her story first 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣thats the news

  12. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣fake fake fake fake

  13. Nah gun laws Are Fine

  14. She’s hot. That was whole point❤

  15. The left is desperate to blame Nashville shooting on:
    Anti-genital mutilation bills
    Gov. Lee Christian parents
    Rightwing influencers
    They refuse to blame:
    The shooter herself
    Mental illness
    Hormone therapy
    Media incitement
    Trans vengeance movement

  16. I love the woman that showed such compassion and came to hug her 🙏🏽❤️🥰

  17. In our modern society, job descriptions change as the needs of the job change. When the automobile first appeared, there weren’t any mechanics to work on these new contraptions the only thing that was close to it, and available in the same vicinity’s that were mechanics would be needed. Were bicycle repairman. Bicycle repairman evolved into auto mechanics because they needed was there and the location was there.

    Taxi drivers turned into Uber drivers. Often times a larger company will scale down, laying off a chunk of its workforce. Only two assigned those missing people’s jobs to other people, so that their job becomes the job of two people.

    The reason why schools are target for not shootings is because they know they will not meet with any resistance. It’s your standard strong targeting the weak.

    How often do you hear about police stations having a mass shooting? You don’t because shooters know that they would meet with such heavy resistance so that it really wouldn’t be worth it to them.

    For whatever reason schools have become a target for lunatics in our day and age, and therefore the description of the job that is known as a teacher needs to evolve. Has it has it has now become the job of the teacher to make sure that these kids are safe when these situations occur.

    I think it’s time that we took that a step further, and not only made it standard that the teachers responsibility is not only education but the safety of the children. What I mean by that is that teachers should all be trained in the use of firearms. If every teacher was trained and armed, and I don’t mean on their belt, I mean in a very secure, safe, or something in the classroom shooters, would not consider them such easy targets. If every teacher were trained and armed, then it would be suicide the same as attempting a mass shooting on a police station.

    No, I know that it sounds bad but I need you to think about the idea that this is a real solution that can be implemented in six months. Not some gun control thing that might do something or other not some background check thing or any other thing that might make some sort of mine are difference somehow.

    There’s so many guns on the streets that, even if we outlawed all guns, it would be a good hundred years. I’m still finding many a criminal that still had firearms. The cat is out of the bag, and there’s only one way to curb this killing of innocent people this is something that would actually do something quickly.

    Just consider the idea if every teacher was trained in the use of firearms and had a lock firearm in their class I want you to really put your bias aside and consider how much that would bring down the school shootings. It’s the only answer that actually does something immediately and consistently and absolutely there’s no other solution that actually can be implemented in six months and make an immediate difference. There isn’t one. there’s just isn’t.

    It would be equivalent to attempting to do a mass shooting at a police station. You would have an entire school of trained armed teachers. Their job is to evolve with the times, and apparently the times are dictating that the safety of our children is imperil while they’re at school, therefore the teachers need to step up and make it a part of their job.

    If people actually want to save children’s lives, this is the only answer that will produce a major lowering in the number of these shootings

    Teachers won’t like it. I don’t like it. No one likes it, but I like dead kids even less

    The only reason they won’t is because they don’t want to……. Someone tell me how this wouldn’t reduce school shootings?

    You can’t possibly say it won’t. What’s a child’s life worth to you? Your moral objection to firearms? Sounds like a good trade to me.

    Thoughts? Better ideas?

  18. There have been nowhere near that many school shootings.

  19. This could be a crisis actor. All the day need is armed guards at every school.

  20. why school don't have Armed security? even the bar and club have a room at security even some gas station have Arm at security why? Why after all this school have Armed security? Parents don’t send your kids to school before the school armed security.!

  21. Tf wrong with her eyes. The sun that harsh?
