The UK is experiencing a crime wave – murder by knife. So now there’s a call for reasonable knife control measures. And London Mayor Sadiq Khan stands ready to enforce them.
The mayor says, “there is never a reason to carry a knife.” Not only that, “Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law.”
Andrew McCabe showed a “lack of candor” when answering questions about the Clinton Foundation investigation. That’s according to the Justice Department inspector general. So Jeff Sessions fired him. Just days before he would have received his pension.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has also been known for a lack of candor. But he was offering the “least untruthful” answer possible. And he kept his pension.
The WSJ says, President Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid $130,000 to porn star Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels. Stormy says the payment was part of an agreement to keep quiet about an “encounter” between the two in 2006.
Better Offer for Stormy?
But now she wants out of the deal because she says Trump never signed it.
The Washington Post reported Hillary Clinton’s campaign hid payments through a lawyer too. The campaign’s law firm Perkins Coi paid Fusion GPS to make noise by digging dirt on Trump before the election. Fusion GPS in turn hired the British spy Christopher Steel who produced the “salacious” dossier used to gain FISA court permission to spy on Trump associates.
You can see something and say something, but Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel isn’t listening.
But he is talking.
The kid who killed 17 former high school classmates in Parkland, Florida had a tough time getting the cops’ attention. Red flags popped up everywhere. Callers warned the Broward County Sheriff’s office 18 times. A tipster told the FBI in January, “I know he’s going to explode.”
Four cops stood outside outside the school building while inside he fired away.
Then the shooter left the building and bought a soda.
National Review’s David French says, The Parkland shooter did everything but call police and tell them the date and time of his attack. It would have been difficult for him to make his intentions more clear.
CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, “Are you really not taking any responsibility for the multiple red flags that were brought to the attention of the Broward Sheriff’s Office about this shooter before the incident?”
The sheriff’s reply? “I’ve given amazing leadership.”
