There have been so many, I have to use Google.

Ten died at Santa Fe, Texas, High School in 2018. To my shame, I had forgotten.

Gov. Abbott said the guns were legally owned by the accused perpetrator’s father.

• The governor offered his sympathies to the victims then called for lawmakers and others to come together to prevent more tragedies. “We need to do more than just pray for the victims and their families. It’s time in Texas that we take action to step up and make sure this tragedy is never repeated ever again.”

That was almost four years to the day ago.

He did a little jig at the NRA...

The Worst Part of Trump’s Performance at NRA’s Convention Wasn’t When He Read Uvalde Victims’ Names

It was the little dance.

Hitler did a jig.

Trump 'Committed Treason' With Pence Remark: Ex-Prosecutor Glenn Kirschner

Newsweek ON 5/27/22

Former Army prosecutor Glenn Kirschner on Thursday said he believes Donald Trump "committed the crime of treason" if a report is true that he said former Vice President Mike Pence should be hanged.

Kirschner made the comments on his YouTube show, Justice Matters. In the video, he discussed a recently released account provided to the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021. According to The New York Times' reporting of the account, Mark Meadows, then the White House chief of staff, told colleagues on January 6 that Trump said "something to the effect of: Maybe Mr. Pence should be hanged."

"The evidence is mounting that Donald Trump didn't just incite the insurrection. He committed the crime of treason," Kirschner said.


What tone the president of the United States used when he was saying the vice president should be hanged? Does his tone matter?" Kirschner asked incredulously.

He continued, "So, friends, based on this new reporting, let me state this as plainly and directly as I can: Donald Trump committed the crime of treason."

Senate GOP Blocks Domestic Terrorism Bill


After Racist Massacre in Buffalo, Senate GOP Blocks Domestic Terrorism Bill

"There are a lot of MAGA Republicans for whom no amount of gun violence... will ever, ever convince them to take any action," said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

CommonDreams.Org, May 26, 2022

Less than two weeks after a white supremacist gunned down 10 Black people at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York, Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked legislation aimed at combating domestic terrorism in the United States—specifically the growing threat posed by neo-Nazis and white nationalists.

The final vote on the House-passed legislation was 47-47, with every Senate Republican in attendance voting no. At least 60 yes votes were needed to overcome the filibuster and advance to a final vote on the bill.

Every Senate Democrat who cast a vote supported the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act, which proposed ensuring that federal agencies have the resources needed to detect and prevent "acts of domestic terrorism and white supremacist and neo-Nazi infiltration of law enforcement and corrections agencies."



So, why is it that we Democrats can’t end the filibuster, only Republicans?

One of my beefs about that is that it has gotten them 3 Putin-approved picks on the Supreme Court, all pro-NRA gunhumpers, if not openly White Power advocates.

Le Monde writes "America 'Exceptional' at One 'Bloody' Thing: Mass Shootings"

The French paper makes clear where the blame lies: the Republicans.

Le Monde Editorial Says America 'Exceptional' at One 'Bloody' Thing: Mass Shootings

The French newspaper gave a searing indictment of the Republican Party's failure to back even modest gun control legislation in the United States, unmoved to act even after children are slaughtered.

May 25, 2022

An editorial published Wednesday by French daily newspaper Le Monde weighs in on the latest mass shooting in the U.S., pointing to America's familiar "cycle of despair" and directing specific blame at a Republican Party whose singular credo is "more and more guns."

Published hours after the massacre at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, in which a gunman shot dead 19 children and two teachers, the editorial states, "If there is any American exceptionalism, it is to tolerate the fact that schools in the United States are regularly transformed into bloody shooting ranges."

The editorial board referenced other mass shootings that occurred just this month, one at a Taiwanese church in California and another at a supermarket in New York, as evidence "America is killing itself" and that Republicans are "looking the other way, ideologically complicit in one tragedy after another."

Beto DID say he was going to take away the assault rifles.

“Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” O’Rourke said at a debate when he was running for president. Now he's running for governor and said he won't be backing down from the statement.
