trump just expressed his condolences to the victims of the "Toledo" shooting.




I usually can't bear to watch him, but I did, and now I know what people are talking about when they mention that sniffing thing.

Also too, he's obviously reading, squinting, but reading. I really doubt the teleprompter said Toledo, but I'm sure somebody will get the blame.

I didn't watch, but catching up on the recap on MSNBC. :confused: :confused: :confused:

What good will a death penalty do when most of the mass shooters have to go in knowing they're likely going to be shot by police?

Can the cities of Dayton and El Paso tell him thanks, but no thanks, don't come to our city?

Lieu Retweeted Donald J. Trump

Hey @realDonaldTrump: You are a real jerk for using mass shooting deaths to try to get your way on anti-immigrant legislation. STOP BLAMING IMMIGRANTS.

NOT IMMIGRANTS: The mass shooters in El Paso, Las Vegas, Tree of Life, Parkland, Charleston ...

Also it's Dayton, not Toledo.

Regretfully, I can see the twisted logic behind this gambit.

Step 1: Offer up gun control legislation of some sort in exchange for Democrats in Congress giving Trump the restrictive changes to immigration law that he craves.
Step 2: Democrats refuse for the perfectly excellent reason that this is the political equivalent of hostage-taking, e.g., "Sure would be a shame if more people got killed just because you oppose my desire to make America white again."
Step 3: Loudly point out that Democrats don't really want meaningful gun control, because they value "open borders" so much, and then run on that in 2020.
The House has already passed a few bills that are dying in the Senate. Everything Trump wants and more has been passed by the Democrats. It would sure be nice for someone in Congress -- Buehler?, Buehler? -- to, oh you know MENTION IT!

Per FAA advisories, Trump will travel to El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio on Wednesday in the wake of two mass shootings.
Doesn't the 2020 campaign still owe $$$ to the City of El Paso? Now they need to spend more on extra police and stuff?
Yes.

He owes El Paso $470,000 for his February hate fest.

:shock: How does he get away with that? His campaign money begs me almost daily via text and I know they are flush with cash because there are no challengers to dilute the donor pool on the Republican side. :think:

8chan and Daily Stormer now both offline as a cloud provider cuts off access.

Dumped by Cloudflare, 8chan gets back online—then gets kicked off again
8chan was able to get back online today despite Cloudflare cutting it off, as operators of the controversial website quickly found a new provider of CDN and DDoS protection services. But as of this writing 8chan is offline again, apparently as a result of a cloud provider cutting off 8chan's new vendor.

Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince announced his decision to boot 8chan yesterday, noting that a suspected terrorist gunman apparently "posted a screed to [8chan] immediately before beginning his terrifying attack on the El Paso Walmart killing 20 people." In the past, 8chan was used similarly by perpetrators of attacks at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand and a synagogue in Poway, California. "8chan has repeatedly proven itself to be a cesspool of hate," Prince wrote.

But Prince noted that 8chan would likely find a new provider and get itself back online—and as predicted, 8chan quickly switched its website over a provider called BitMitigate, the same company that began serving the Daily Stormer after Cloudflare cut it off.

"All our domains have been removed from Cloudflare, so we will be moving to another service ASAP," 8chan administrator Ron Watkins wrote on Twitter late last night.

"Expect some minutes of downtime in the coming hour as we switch over to @bitmitigate," Watkins wrote in a subsequent post. Four hours later, Watkins wrote that "8chan is coming back online across the world as [new DNS records are] propagated." :snippity:

The Post urges Trump to take action on assault weapons
... President Trump, you are positioned to assuage that fear. On gun control, you are a pragmatic centrist, someone who knows there is a vast majority of Americans who are not to the extreme left or right on this issue. They just want the killings to stop.

Yes, we know the president regularly praises the Second Amendment and received the National Rifle Association’s support in the 2016 race.

But the Second Amendment leaves ample room for regulating gun rights, just as every other constitutional right has its limits.

And Trump has sneered at others for being afraid of the NRA when it comes to passing common-sense gun laws. He’d surely have rather had Congress pass a law banning bump stocks, although his administration got it done eventually through executive action. :snippity:

I think you owe Clairez an apology. Read the post again. The list was “stupid, erroneous, pointless blame-shifting reasons right-wingers have put forth to explain the shootings so they don’t have to admit they were caused by white racism.”

It wasn’t denigrating those who have taken ADD meds.
Thanks RoadScholar, I was indeed just pointing out another one of the things rightwingers are blaming the increase of mass shooters on.

So America is the only country in the world that recognizes LGBTQ rights? And that's why we have the daily slaughter of civilians? Candice is so smart.

Yeah. I could have sworn he said Toledo this morning in his national address. Had me confused for a bit, and then none of the news anchors said a thing.
