Donald Trump’s Latest ‘Give Teachers Guns’ Tweets Only Weaken His Fake News Claims

‘In short: Give teachers guns.’

X

Donald Trump has explained how he wants to give teachers guns in a series of tweets claiming he never said he wants to give teachers guns.

The President woke up on Thursday morning and immediately claimed the “fake news” was twisting his words made during a White House listening session on mass shootings last night.

He then explained what he really said which can be summarised as “give teachers guns”.

I never said “give teachers guns” like was stated on Fake News @CNN & @NBC. What I said was to look at the possibility of giving “concealed guns to gun adept teachers with military or special training experience – only the best. 20% of teachers, a lot, would now be able to

….immediately fire back if a savage sicko came to a school with bad intentions. Highly trained teachers would also serve as a deterrent to the cowards that do this. Far more assets at much less cost than guards. A “gun free” school is a magnet for bad people. ATTACKS WOULD END!

….History shows that a school shooting lasts, on average, 3 minutes. It takes police & first responders approximately 5 to 8 minutes to get to site of crime. Highly trained, gun adept, teachers/coaches would solve the problem instantly, before police arrive. GREAT DETERRENT!

….If a potential “sicko shooter” knows that a school has a large number of very weapons talented teachers (and others) who will be instantly shooting, the sicko will NEVER attack that school. Cowards won’t go there…problem solved. Must be offensive, defense alone won’t work!

So, in conclusion…

Trump describes giving teachers guns in tweets where he claims he never said “give teachers guns.”

Trump then took some time to craft a tweet on actual policy.

I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks! Congress is in a mood to finally do something on this issue – I hope!

And then just minutes later praised the very people who would likely resist the move.

What many people don’t understand, or don’t want to understand, is that Wayne, Chris and the folks who work so hard at the @NRA are Great People and Great American Patriots. They love our Country and will do the right thing. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Pictures of the President’s cue card from the event last night reveal five talking points, the first four being questions and the last prompting him to show some empathy to survivors of the massacre.

It did not mention “give teachers guns”.

Trump held an emotional, hour-long meeting with students who survived the Florida shooting earlier this month and a parent whose child did not.

He said arming teachers and other school staff could help prevent future mass shootings, voicing support for an idea backed by the National Rifle Association gun lobby, reports Reuters.

The Republican President, who has championed gun rights and was endorsed by the NRA during the 2016 campaign, said he would move quickly to tighten background checks for gun buyers and would consider raising the age for buying certain types of weapons.

The attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and educators were killed on 14 February, was the second-deadliest shooting at a US public school and has revived the long-running US debate over gun rights.

In Florida around the same time, a panel of students and teachers who survived the shooting, along with many parents of victims, voiced their frustrations and anger.

Worker on zero-hour contract doing zero hours delighted he’s not in unemployed figures

Worker on zero-hour contract doing zero hours delighted he’s not in unemployed figuresAs the latest government figures showed a drop in unemployment to the lowest level in twelve years, zero-hour workers have sought clarification that they’re definitely not unemployed.Despite not doing any work, or being paid any wages, zero-hour contract workers have been told once again that they are a valuable part of the UK’s workforce.Zero-hour contract worker Simon Williams welcomed the reassurances, telling us, “I have a job, and that’s why I’m not in the new unemployment figures – I’m contributing to making them the best ever.“I mean, it’s a job that didn’t pay me anything last week, because I’m not guaranteed any actual work – but that’s better than nothing, right?“Well, I suppose that technically speaking, nothing is not better than nothing, it’s the same as nothing – but you get the point.”Government statisticians have insisted there is a big difference between people not working and not getting paid, and people with a piece of paper to say their job gave them no work and they’re not getting paid.As one senior Whitehall official explained,”People claiming job seekers allowance would love the opportunity to work zero hours for zero pay – as it removes the stigma of unemployment.“Getting back into the workforce routine of not doing anything and not picking up any wages is an important part of reintegrating the previously unemployed.“I look forward to the day when we have another one and a half million workers not doing any work and not getting paid – our unemployment figures will look amazing.”

Huge Russian mafia trial underway in Spain with links to Costa del Sol | Olive Press News Spain

HUGE RUSSIAN MAFIA TRIAL UNDERWAY IN SPAIN WITH LINKS TO COSTA DEL SOLBy Laurence Dollimore (News Editor) – 20 Feb, 2018 @ 10:180

ACCUSED: Reznik SOME 18 suspected Russian mafia members have gone on trial in Spain in a huge money-laundering case.A Russian MP, Vladislav Reznik, is among the accused, while alleged gang bosses  Gennady Petrov and Alexander Malyshev are still at large and are believed to be back in Russia.Reznik said he was at the court in Madrid to prove his innocence.Five Spaniards are also on trial for allegedly aiding Russian criminals. The case dates back to 2008, when Spanish police carried out Operation Troika, arresting 20 Russian mafia suspects, some of which had villas in the likes of Marbella and the Costa del Sol.The money-laundering by Russian gangsters in Spain is said to have started in the 1990s, when rich Russians began investing in luxury villas on the Costa del Sol and Balearic Islands.The courts in Spain believe more than €50 million of Russian mafia money was laundered by the so-called Tambovskaya-Malyshevskaya gang, based in St Petersburg.Reznik, the MP accused, is a member of the United Russia party and is loyal to President Vladimir Putin.Prosecutors have demanded jail sentences of five-and-a-half years for most of the suspects and fines which could reach up to €100m.The case rests partly on phone intercepts in which suspects are allegedly heard speaking to gang bosses.One of the suspects, Mikhail Rebo, struck a deal with prosecutors, which saw him plead guilty in return for a reduced jail term of two years and a fine of €1.6m.Gennady Petrov was arrested in the police raids of 2008 but later fled back to Russia.The indictment says his gang ‘clearly managed to penetrate layers of the state apparatus’ and ‘has links to Russian economic, political, judicial and police power’.Spaniard Antonio Fortuny is accused of creating an opaque business network that channelled mafia money into offshore accounts.Alexander Litvinenko, the former Russian intelligence agent who was notoriously murdered in London with radioactive polonium-210 in 2006, had been helping Spanish officials to investigate Russian organised crime.

Spain falls behind on list of world’s most corrupt countries, ranks below Qatar, Poland and Botswana | Olive Press News Spain

SPAIN FALLS BEHIND ON LIST OF WORLD’S MOST CORRUPT COUNTRIES, RANKS BELOW QATAR, POLAND AND BOTSWANABy Laurence Dollimore (News Editor) – 22 Feb, 2018 @ 12:020

SPAIN has dropped a place on the ‘world’s most corrupt country’ list. Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index for 2017, released yesterday, places Spain at 42nd – after being ranked 41st last year.With a score of 57 out of 100 (100 being the least corrupt), it ties with Cyrpus, the Czech Republic and Dominica, but is beaten by Qatar, Poland and Botswana, which were ranked 29th, 34th and 36th respectively.“The results are disturbing,” said Transparency International.“This year’s index shows that the majority of countries are making little or no progress in ending corruption. Even worse, journalists and activists in corrupt countries are risking their lives every day in an effort to speak out.RAJOY: First PM to testify in criminal case“The index ranks 180 countries using a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean. This year, more than two-thirds of countries score below 50.“Unfortunately, compared to recent years, this poor performance is nothing new.“Countries with the least protection for press and activists also tend to have the worst rates of corruption. In fact, every week at least one journalist is killed in a country that is highly corrupt.”It comes as Spain is witnessing several high profile corruption cases.The ERE scandal in Andalucia is one of the biggest in the country’s history, with party leaders and politicians accused of syphoning off more than €1 billion in public funds.Meanwhile the Gurtel case is seeing dozens of Partido Popular politicians come under scrutiny over an alleged slushfund, and even saw the country’s prime minister be forced to testify.

‘Dry and warmer than average’ spring for southern Spain and Andalucia | Olive Press News Spain

DRY AND WARMER THAN AVERAGE’ SPRING FOR SOUTHERN SPAIN AND ANDALUCIABy Laurence Dollimore (News Editor) – 21 Feb, 2018 @ 16:330

THE Iberian Peninsula will experience a dry and warmer than average spring. According to Accuweather, an ‘area of high pressure will build west of the Iberian Peninsula and shield much of western Europe from frequent storm systems.’March is forecast to be the wettest period of the season, particularly across Portugal and parts of Spain ‘before a shift to very dry weather occurs from late March into May’.Infrequent storms will cause ‘unseasonable warmth to build from the Iberian Peninsula,’ the weather agency added.Eastern Spain and southern France are predicted to have the most prolonged and significant warmth.“The warm and dry weather will come at a cost as the threat for drought conditions will grow in eastern Spain and southern France,” the forecast warns.“Prolonged dry spells during spring may cause problems for agriculture due to a lack of soil moisture in areas that typically see very infrequent rainfall during the summer,” it added.

Malaga and southern Spain will experience droughts ’14 TIMES more severe than in recent years’ – and much sooner than previously thought | Olive Press News Spain

MALAGA AND SOUTHERN SPAIN WILL EXPERIENCE DROUGHTS ’14 TIMES MORE SEVERE THAN IN RECENT YEARS’ – AND MUCH SOONER THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHTBy Laurence Dollimore (News Editor) – 21 Feb, 2018@ 15:500

MALAGA and southern Spain could see droughts 14 times more severe than in recent years from as soon as 2050 onwards.That is according to an unprecedented study by Newcastle University, which predicts what will happen to Europe’s major cities as a result of global warming.Even in the best case scenario, the likes of Malaga and Almeria will experience droughts at least twice as severe as those in recent years.The study analysed 571 European cities and showed that the impact of floods, droughts and heat waves will be worse than previously imagined between 2050 and 2100.The research has analyzed for the first time the changes in floods, droughts and heat waves in all European cities using all climate models available.Published in ‘Environmental Research Letters’, the study shows a worsening of heat waves for the 571 cities analyzed; increased drought conditions, particularly in southern Europe, and more flooding in river basins, especially in the cities of northwestern Europe.Using projections of all available climate models, the team showed results for three possible futures that they separated into low, medium and high impact scenarios.The study shows that even the most optimistic of these, the low impact scenario (global temperature rise of 2.6C), predicts that both the number of days of heat waves and their maximum temperaturesUNDER THREAT: Malagawill increase in all European cities.The cities of southern Europe will experience the largest increases in the number of heat wave days, while the cities of central Europe will see the greatest increase in temperature during heat waves, between 2 to 7 degrees for the low scenario and from 8 to 14 in the worst case scenario.It means areas like Sevilla could see temperatures soar well into the 50Cs.In the low impact scenario, drought conditions only intensify in the cities of southern Europe, while river floods only worsen in the northwest.Between 2051 and 2100, in the low impact scenario, cities like Malaga and Almeria will experience drought twice as serious as those between 1951 and 2000, while assuming a scenario of high impact, 98% of European cities could experience worse droughts in the future while cities in southern Europe can experience drought up to 14 times worse than today.The worst affected will be Athens, Lisbon and Madrid.“Although the southern regions of Europe are adapted to cope with droughts, this level of change could be beyond the point of bankruptcy,” said Selma Guerreiro, lead author of the study.The implications of the study in terms of how Europe adapts to climate change are far-reaching, says Professor Richard Dawson, co-author and principal investigator of the study.“The research highlights the urgent need to design and adapt our cities to address these future conditions,” he said.Of the European capitals, it is likely that Dublin, Helsinki, Riga, Vilnius and Zagreb will experience the most extreme increase in floods.For the high impact scenario, several European cities could see increases of more than 80% in the maximum flows of the rivers, including Santiago de Compostela in Spain, Cork and Waterford in Ireland, Braga and Barcelos in Portugal and Derry / Londonderry in Northern Ireland.

5 Years Anniversary of Cardiff Judge ‘Child Smuggling’ Ruling: Cover-up of Toddler Rape, Satanist Ritual Abuse (SRA), and Murder – psychassessmentblog

5 Years Anniversary of Cardiff Judge ‘Child Smuggling’ Ruling: Cover-up of Toddler Rape, Satanist Ritual Abuse (SRA), and Murder

Five years ago today I was sitting outside a Cardiff court room as I had been all week together with a mate of the mother who would – most probably – loose custody of her child that day. The morning had gone surprisingly well in that the judge dismissed all allegations of ‘child neglect’ that the SS had trumped up to bolster their non-existence claim for obtaining custody of the toddler. Within the benefit of hindsight it seems to be a routine part of the ‘Child Smuggling’ operations run by Satanist Ritual Abuse (SRA) gangs that rely on tax-payer funded ‘professionals’ (‘operatives’?). Make up allegations, taint the testimony of the Psych experts, and traumatise the mother through ‘disbelief’. When it comes to court week this situation lets the Barrister (ostensibly) acting for the mother ‘shine’ criticising the Council and the Judge ‘looks reasonable and compassionate’. Of course the name of the game is to let the tainted evidence of the Psychs stand!Have a read through the redacted transcript:Court Ruling Transcript Section B1 pages 43-68 (26 pages redacted 22nd Feb 2018)This mother of a toddler had sent a 2 page email containing a warning to people in Kingston-upon-Thames that her father had sexually assaulted her toddler in broad daylight. Authority representatives disbelieved her account as she only reported the assault after 3 weeks. Why? Because an inadequate police officer in Kingston-upon-Thames had instructed here twice in a 40 minute late night conversation to delay reporting to facilitate an ‘undercover operation’. The mother fell for the manipulation stating several times: ‘The Met police officer saved my life’.The manipulations included ‘advice’ to avoid building social relationships and attachments as she ‘may have to be taken into a witness protection program’ abroad. It weakened her ability to activate a support network and conveniently allowed mental health operatives to smear her as ‘Schizoid’ (denoting or having a personality type characterized by emotional aloofness and solitary habits).Furthermore the police officer asked for name and description of individuals the mother would recognise. She duly gave details of e.g. ‘the tall transvestite’ who used to be a customer in the shoe shop she worked in after dropping out of A-level following a pills overdose (prompted by an incestuous sexual assault). Seeing these individuals would be a ‘signal’ that the undercover operation was underway. Of course it conveniently enabled Psych operatives to claim that she was schizophrenic ‘imagining’ the presence of people.  Following the assault individuals she recognised were paraded in front of her usually looking rather uncomfortable and saying nothing or at most ‘Sorry’. One person seemingly was brought over from the Republic of Ireland!To me this looked like the work of an Organised Ritual Crime Abuse Network (ORCAN) deeply embedded in the Public Sector. In the 12 months run up to the sexual assault the half-aunt suddenly passed away (ostensibly due to alcoholism). Strangely (?) her son had been raped as a toddler when playing in the garden (saw proof of that in official documents). The mother had disclosed that she had been raped by her father as a toddler. Three toddler rapes – and everyone ‘looks away’ and fails to investigate properly the most likely suspect!The (grand)father started to turn up in the South Wales valleys having obtained her address through deception involving the protagonist’s half-brother (whose son had been buggered) and his girl-friend. Just 2 weeks before the court week the mother supplied me with Facebook evidence of their conversation as well as communications with her family backing her case. Why did police and legal aid solicitor fail to procure this information?A close friend of the toddler’s nursery teacher was reportedly found dead. My heart sank when we went ‘on location’ and got confirmation when I asked someone: ‘Was there a strange death in this village about 2 years ago’?I put together a poster that outlines the situation and wider context. A dozen stalking, defamation and harassment events included an attempt to run mother and toddler over in front of their house. The night before her body was found ‘in the village river’ she reportedly was seen in company of the ‘stalker’ in a village pub and later seen arguing at Railway Terrace overlooking the location where she was found. Bizarrely South Wales police found the circumstances of the death ‘not suspicious’. Why would someone end up in the village river just after Christmas other than through foul play?I saw police records of a defamation incident where a caller claimed that she was feeding dog food to her toddler. A police helicopter and two cars chased down the young family. Everything was found to be in perfect order. You would hope that police, SS and Psych experts would consider s
