Beto O’Rourke Interrupts Greg Abbott Press Conference On Texas Shooting

Published

on

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, a Democrat candidate for Texas governor, interrupted a press conference led by Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) and needed to be escorted out by law enforcement as Abbott mourned the deaths of nearly two dozen children and teachers who were killed by a school shooter the day before.

Abbott began the press conference by detailing what was known about the shooter who opened fire at Robb Elementary and killed at least 19 children and 2 teachers before being killed by law enforcement.

O’Rourke then approached the stage where Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Sen. Ted Cruz and others were standing.

“The time to stop the next shooting is right now and you are doing nothing. You are offering us nothing,” O’Rourke said. “This is totally predictable when you choose not to do anything.”

Cruz told O’Rourke to “sit down and don’t play this stuff.”

“Please get his a** outta here,” a man on stage told law enforcement.

“Sir, you are out of line. Please leave this auditorium” a man yelled to O’Rourke. “I can’t believe. You’re a sick son of a b****, you would come to a deal like this to make a political issue.”

O’Rourke continued to yell back at those on the stage and was forced to be escorted out by law enforcement.

“There are family members crying as we speak. There are family members whose hearts are broken. There’s no words that anybody shouting can come up here and do anything to heal those broken hearts. Every Texan, every American has a responsibility,” Abbott said after O’Rourke’s interruption. “We need to focus not on ourselves and our agendas, we need to focus on the healing and hope that we can provide to those who have suffered unconscionable damage to their lives and loss of lives.”

“Some physical wounds that were sustained by the officers, they’re going to heal in the coming days. The mental and emotional wounds are far harder to see, and last far longer. The state of Texas working with federal and local officials in agencies, we’re going to be here for a long, long time,” Abbott added. “And one key point that we will focus on is making sure that everybody in this community has the access they need – for as long as they need it – to address the mental and emotional healthcare needs that they have.”

    I knew months ago that there would be more school shootings orchestrated by the Left so they can go forward with their agenda to confiscate our guns! Just how much longer do we have to tolerate this corrupt Government and its employees, that our taxpayer monies pay for?
    Prayers to the families of those affected and to the community! May God comfort you!

    typical ignorant dem! this guy is blaming Abbot when he should be blaming his own party. they spew hatred and it stirs up people esp the young. you have critical race theory pitting black and whites against each other, you have whites being called white supremist, you have illegals coming in the country bringing crime, disease, drugs, rapists. it’s works on people esp thos who are unsable to begin with.

    Beto is way out of his league. He needs to go and, hopefully, take the rest of his cohorts – all of them – with him!

    As we have now learned, nearly all of what Abbott and others on the stage reported about the incident was untrue. There was no interaction with the resource officer before he entered the building- in fact, there was no resource officer present at the school at all! The families of these murdered children were being unashamedly lied to – some had been at the school begging officers to enter or let them do it. The sanctimonious attitude of the group on stage was revolting. Beto was the only truth teller there! Abbott’s grave concern about the lack of mental health wasn’t apparent when just months earlier he slashed the budget for mental health services. I sincerely hope that there will be a reckoning for this mendacity and I will continue to pray for the families and victims of this preventable abomination.

    Not a smart move for Beto, but Abbott’s history with regard to
    intelligent gun regulation makes anything he says about mass shootings suspect, in the least. His comments, none of which implicated irresponsible gun laws and enforcement in the Uvalde massacre, were no less political than Beto’s comments.

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Published

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

on

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
