Abbott 'livid,' says he was 'misled' on police response to shooting

Source: The Hill

Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said he “was misled” and is “livid” over inaccurate information he was given about the police response to the Texas elementary school shooting that killed 19 children and two teachers.

During a press conference on Friday hours after police acknowledged they should have engaged with an active shooter at a deadly school shooting, Abbott said he was given incorrect information about the initial response.

“I was misled,” Abbott said. “I am livid about what happened.”

Abbott earlier this week heaped praise on police for their response to the shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

On Friday, he reversed course...

Karine doesn't rule out potential investigation into slow cop response

Q Thanks, Karine. Does the President believe that there should be an investigation into the police response to this school shooting?

MS. JEAN-PIERRE: So we’ve heard of — (member of the press coughs) — we’ve — need some water? You okay? (Laughs.) Just let us know.

The President — we’ve — we’ve been watching the reporting on this. The President has the utmost respect, as you all know, for the men and women of law enforcement. Just days ago, he honored the memory of the former police officer, Aaron Salter, in Buffalo who was killed bravely while trying to stop the shooter at the supermarket.

I know that right now authorities are working to piece together more details of what happened in Uvalde, so we won’t prejudge the results from here at this time.

It is al- — it is always a good idea to look back and try to find any lessons we can learn, especially from trag- — tragedies like this, so that we can prevent them from moving forward, including law enforcement response.

Germany and Italy told companies they could open rouble accounts to keep buying Russian gas 5/20/22

"Germany and Italy told companies they could open rouble accounts to keep buying Russian gas without breaching sanctions against Moscow following discussions with the European Union, sources said.

The debate over Russia's demand that foreign buyers pay for gas in roubles has tested the resolve of European governments to take a hard line against Moscow over the war in Ukraine.

Poland, Bulgaria and Finland have refused to comply with Moscow's demand that importers pay for gas via rouble accounts with Gazprombank and their supplies have been cut.

Other member states, however, have been unwilling to steer companies towards action that could result in losing vital supplies of Russian gas that heats homes and powers factories..."

Duggar was found guilty by a jury of receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography in December.

Gun humpers are invigorated by mass shootings

Make no mistake. It actually emboldens them in their views. It gives them a visceral charge. Their opposition to reform hardens.

I had an in-law who would actually get a spring in his step and a sudden chattiness about guns. They see people killed in mass shootings as sacrifices we must make to remain armed to the teeth. They don't give a damn about the people who died. They are faceless offerings to Merica and her guns.

Source: AP

orkers digging through the rubble of an apartment building in Mariupol found 200 bodies in the basement, Ukrainian authorities said Tuesday, as more horrors come to light in the ruined city that has seen some of the worst suffering of the 3-month-old war.

The bodies were decomposing and the stench hung over the neighborhood, said Petro Andryushchenko, an adviser to the mayor. He did not say when they were discovered, but the sheer number of victims makes it one of the deadliest known attacks of the war...

Karine needs to recognize Doocy for what he is

A gotcha performer with an agenda. Not a serious journalist who wants to ask a fair question and get a serious answer.

Jen came to understand this quickly and masterfully kept him off balance, constantly jabbing at his bias and Faux News employers. As soon as Karine comes to the same understanding, he'll get more of what he deserves. And that will happen quickly, imo.
