Democrats in a tailspin
The field of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have taken themselves off message, and have veer not just far to the Left of the political party, but have jumped right into the gutter with social media bottom feeders whose only message of opposition to President Donald Trump is to call him a racist and blame him for the recent horrific mass shootings.
The shootings in El Paso and Dayton were committed by mentally disturbed gunmen, not the president. Even Julian Castro, who also calls the president at racist, blames the shooter, not the president for the El Paso shooting that left 21 dead and dozens injured.
In his attempt to stay relevant, Robert 'Beto' O'Rourke not only blamed Trump for the El Paso shooting but even had the gall to pose for selfies while striking a big Kool-Aid smile.
Speaking of Kool-Aid, Sen. Cory Booker took to the airways to emphasize how racist Trump was. I guess him calling Trump a "White Nationalist" and "Racist" bears more weight coming from a black man like himself. Oops! Was that racist to say?
Take a look at 'Beto' O'Rourke's shameless exploitation of the shooting here.
President Trump and Sen. Marco Rubio are calling for "RedFlagLaws" to be enacted to prevent mass shootings like these >>> Click here

Senate President Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, on Monday directed Senate Infrastructure and Security Chairman Tom Lee, R-Thonotosassa, to lead efforts to determine if any further action is needed after laws were enacted in the wake of the Feb. 14, 2018 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Trump asks to change immigration laws so that something “PHENOMENAL” comes out of shootings with 29 dead by Telemundo
The president, Donald Trump, has appealed on Monday to this weekend's shooting in El Paso (Texas) and Dayton (Ohio) to urge the Democratic Party to back its immigration reform , so that something “good, yes no PHENOMENAL, get out of these two tragic events. ”
In addition, he has indicated that the media have "a great responsibility in life and security in this country", blaming " the false news " of "contributing much to the anger and anger that has been accumulating for many years "
A 24-year-old man opened fire on Saturday morning with an automatic rifle at an El Paso shopping center near the Mexican border and packed with thousands of people, killing 20 people and wounding more than two dozen. That same day, at night, an individual with bulletproof vest and extra ammunition mortally shot nine people , including his sister, and wounded 26 in a nightlife area in Dayton...
The nation should be outraged": the sheriff of El Paso after the attack that left 20 dead by Univision
El Paso Sheriff Richard Wiles , who oversees the jail in which the man who allegedly killed 20 people in a Walmart in El Paso, Texas , is being detained , described the racist attack in a Facebook post on Saturday night.
" This Anglo man came here to kill Hispanics, " he wrote. "I am outraged and you should be too. This whole nation should be outraged. Today, with all the serious problems we face, we are still confronted with people who will kill others for the sole reason of the color of their skin."
The sheriff's statements came after authorities reported investigating the attack as a hate crime and assessing the possible link of the suspect in the El Paso massacre with an alleged manifesto published on the Internet shortly before the attack.
"Right now we have a manifesto of this individual that indicates a possible hate crime," said El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen , this morning.
The brief, published shortly before the killing that left 20 dead and 26 wounded, speaks of "a Hispanic invasion of Texas" and warns of "replacing white people with foreigners," according to various local media.

I was scheduled for @ErinBurnett

Then I agreed to go on @AC360

I’m ready for the discussion whenever @cnn

Talk is cheap & Trump's prepared remarks today aren't matched by actions.
Trump needs to treat white supremacist violence like the crisis it is & take immediate action on this domestic terrorism threat, including how he encourages rather than condemns it
25 Arrested in Online Predator Sting by WSVN 7 Miami
SARASOTA, Fla. (WSVN) — Over two dozen men have been arrested in a four-day sting to find online predators.
The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrests of 25 people during Operation Intercept VI. Detectives said the suspects range in age from 19 to 65, and they all traveled with the intent of having sex with a child.
Deputies said the suspects responded to Internet-based ads, online apps and social media where they engaged in “sexually explicit written and verbal conversations.”
“Unfortunately, the internet allows for easy and anonymous access to children by strangers who are hiding behind a computer screen. That is why these operations are paramount to ensuring our most vulnerable population is safe and protected,” Sheriff Tom Knight said. “The men arrested during this operation managed to blend into society and attempted to prey on children by developing a trust through promises to exploit them for sexual purposes.”
Detectives also warned about
mobile apps that predators may use to target children. The list is an updated list from last year which initially consisted of nine apps. Detectives have now added an additional six apps.
The list includes Bumble, Snapchat, Kik, LiveMe, Holla, Whisper, Ask.fm, Calculator%, Hot or Not, MeetMe, Grindr, SKOUT, WhatsApp, TikTok and Badoo.
