The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war." - - Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia - Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War

The Broward County Sheriff Is Everything That's Wrong With American Authority

The Broward County Sheriff Is Everything That's Wrong With American Authority



The sheriff is an outsized figure in the American imagination. He is Wyatt Earp, shooting it out with outlaws at the O.K. Corral. He is John Wayne, a lonely instrument of frontier justice. He is Rick Grimes, the resourceful survivor of a zombie apocalypse in “The Walking Dead.”

Now, along comes Scott Israel to remind us, despite the legend, how a sheriff can be a hack politician whose primary concern is protecting his own political reputation and little fief.

The Broward County sheriff, whose disgraceful performance in the Stoneman Douglas shooting has been a master class in evasion of responsibility, is the latest entry in why we don’t trust our public institutions.

It’s hard to imagine a more comprehensive and catastrophic failure from beginning to end than that of the sheriff’s office in the Parkland massacre. It ignored warnings that were specific and chilling about the shooter, and at least one of its deputies waited outside the school while the shooting occurred (and perhaps others did as well in the immediate aftermath).

Sheriff Israel appropriately pronounced himself disgusted with the deputy, who has lost his job. But asked in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday if he acknowledges that had his department acted differently, the shooter might have been foiled, the sheriff responded with a flip rhyme, “ifs and buts and candy and nuts.”

It’s not as though the sheriff, mindful of the need to get a handle on his department’s conduct, has been quietly tending his own shop. At the CNN town hall last week, he turned in a crowd-pleasing performance. He opined about the new authorities that the police require and joined in lambasting National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch to cheers from the audience.

He was emphatic about everything not touching on what officers under his authority did or didn’t do. When attention turned to that, he suddenly became mincingly precise and demanded to know more detail about reported warning signs.

When Loesch cited media accounts of 39 calls to the police, Israel denounced the figure as categorically false. And the lawman was right — it was at least 18 calls.

What were these warnings? In 2016, a caller to the sheriff’s office said the perpetrator “planned to shoot up a school.” More recently, last Nov. 30, a caller told the sheriff’s office that the shooter was amassing weapons and “could be a school shooter in the making.”

The motto is that when we see something, we should say something. In the case of the Parkland shooter, people said something, over and over again, to little or no effect. The cliché after disasters is that no one “connected the dots.” In the case of the Parkland shooter, the dots were connected with bright lines.

Yet nothing happened, and the sheriff’s office had a large hand in that. Israel’s performance at the CNN town hall was even more shamefully dodgy when considering it is likely that he already knew one of his deputies had done nothing to stop the shooter at the scene.

The sheriff’s theory of leadership apparently doesn’t extend down to the people working for him. “I gave him a gun,” he said of the deputy in another interview. “I gave him a badge. I gave him the training. If he didn’t have the heart to go in, that’s not my responsibility.” The buck doesn’t stop with the sheriff, in other words; it stops with whomever he happens to give a badge and a gun.

Some supporters of gun control want to look away from the failures of law enforcement to keep the focus on the guns. But this is foolish for their own purposes — politically, there is no chance of significant new laws if no one is held to account for glaring mistakes under the status quo.

If we take the imperative to do better seriously, Sheriff Israel and all his bureaucratic excuses should get the hell out of town.

The Left Wants to Confiscate All of Your Firearms

   
A few days ago I warned you on my radio program that the Left would use the survivors of the Florida school shooting as propaganda pawns in a nationwide gun grab.

I warned you to be prepared because it was about to mount an ugly assault on the Second Amendment, smearing every law-abiding gun owner as bloodthirsty monsters.

And that’s exactly what happened Wednesday night during CNN’s repulsive town hall meeting.

CNN shamefully exploited a terrible, terrible tragedy in an attempt to smear the National Rifle Association as a domestic terrorist organization and law-abiding gun owners as child killers.

Sen. Marco Rubio and NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch were subjected to a verbal flogging. They tried to engage in a thoughtful discussion, but they were shouted down by the angry crowd.

“I had to have a security detail to get out,” Loesch told a sympathetic crowd at CPAC. “I wouldn’t be able to exit if I didn’t have a security detail.”

Others in the crowd screamed that she was a murderer and a bad mother to her two children. It was, quite frankly, repulsive.

“There were people rushing the stage and screaming ‘burn her,’” she said.

Let’s be clear about something — Sen. Rubio and Ms. Loesch had absolutely nothing to do with the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. They are not the bad guys.

What about the Broward County Sheriff’s Department? Why wasn’t it grilled by parents and students? What about the school district? What about the mental health department? What about the FBI?

Yes, there are plenty of bad guys, but Rubio and Loesch are not the bad guys, and neither are the millions of law-abiding gun owners who were slandered by CNN.

But that wasn’t the point of CNN’s town hall gathering. It really wasn’t about giving the students a voice; it was about declaring war on the Second Amendment.

There was a moment when Sen. Rubio pointed out that a ban on semi-automatic firearms would mean a ban on every semi-automatic rifle sold in the country.

The crowd of about 5,000 people roared with approval.

“Some people want all of us to disarm,” Loesch said. “You heard that town hall last night. They cheered the confiscation of firearms.”

Consider this warning from the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre.

“Socialism is a movement that loves a smear. Racists, misogynists, sexists, xenophobe and more,” he said at CPAC. “These are the weapons and vitriol these character assassinations permanently hang on their targets because socialism feeds off manipulated victims.”

And that’s exactly what happened at CNN’s disgraceful town hall meeting.

So buckle up, Americans. The Left has already declared war on free speech and religious liberty. Now it’s coming after the Second Amendment.
