🕊(1) We’ve heard a lot about nothing being done after #Parkland but the truth is quite a lot is being done. March 14, a month after the tragedy, Senate Judiciary held a hearing with @marcorubio @SenBillNelson as witnesses and here is what we learned #SeeSomethingSaySomething
(2) In his opening statements @ChuckGrassley noted that after Newtown he and @tedcruz had proposed legislation that would’ve helped prevent this but politics buried it, they’ve since reintroduced the bill along with two others one named after the school.
(3) Michael Carrol of Florida’s Department of Children and Families closed the Cruz case despite noting him mentally ill, he refused to testify as did @browardsheriff @ScottJIsrael #SeeSomethingSaySomething #Parkland
(4) The Acting director of the @ATFHQ testifies Cruz passed his background check and legally purchased the AR-15 along with 9 other guns. After #Parkland they initiated a new program called iTip to more effectively share tips received with the public and internally.
(5) Deputy Director of the @FBI David Bowdich admitted the absolute fault of both tips they received and explained how they were missed. In response they’ve doubled the agents that receive these tips. He added the mistakes were unforgivable and vowed they would change.
(6) Dr. Lina Alathari testified on behalf of @SecretService National Threat Assessment Center that as a result of the #Parkland tragedy two programs were initiated one to work with local law enforcement and another to strengthen the NTAC study in place. #SeeSomethingSaySomething
(7) Additionally we learned NTAC has been training schools and the program reduces not only tragedy but bullying. At the direction @realDonaldTrump they are working with @SecNielsen to form a soft target steering committee with @DHSgov #SeeSomethingSaySomething
(8) Michael Beckerman of the @InternetAssn explained the responsibility of online platforms to work with law enforcement while still respecting privacy. More importantly he drove home how vital #SeeSomethingSaySomething is for friends, family and concerned citizens.
(9) Ms. Katherine Posada a teacher from Stoneman Douglas described the harrowing day and expressed pride in the change students had brought about. She said it was about both mental health and gun safety and urged for age limits to AR-15 purchases.
(10) Ryan Petty the father of #AlainaPetty who lost her life that day read opened with a statement from the families urging all of us to build a common ground and thanking the community and first responders. #SeeSomethingSaySomething
(11) Then @rpetty read his own statement that every American should take note of. He said what happened at #Parkland would not divide us, he thanked @FLGovScott and said we don’t all have to agree on guns and we won’t but we can agree we want our children safe❤️
(12) “Think of school violence as a disease” because then not only would we treat it, we would prevent it. The solution he said is in our hearts, in making our families better. Mr. Petty hope is that together we can make a cultural change and that is up to each of us #Parkland
(13) Let’s not forget the names and faces of those lost at Parkland, they should be more familiar than anyone else. Thank you @rpetty for your courage and truth we’re listening, #AlainaPetty will not be forgotten. This IS the time to be different. 🕊❤️🌎#msdstrong
(14) Thank you @ChuckGrassley for all your work on this it is greatly appreciated. For full testimony and video please see link below #SeeSomethingSaySomething cc:

(15) PS- Had the Florida FBI reported Cruz it would have flagged his background check #justsaying

📌1. Hey @CNN @MSNBC @ABC @CBSNews @NPR @washingtonpost @nytimes et al, can we talk? Is one of these groups of people more important than the other? All of them were targeted with a deadly threat but most people don’t know that because you didn’t report it #MAGABomber
2. This isn’t an attack, it’s an attempt to help you understand why we chant “fake news” and maybe, just maybe if any of you read it, you’ll admit you aren’t really as fair as you think? @realDonaldTrump is right, we can all do better.
3. Not going to talk about the guys arrested because that really shouldn’t be the focus but two men were both arrested and complaints were filed for five felony charges. Yup, and no one even knows the name of the guy that sent Ricin, why? #CesarSayoc will trend though.

Remember #flaggate when everyone freaked out @realDonaldTrump hadn’t lowered flags for McCain? Looks like it was the handy work of one of the resist idiots @Project_Veritas has documented. First thing Monday morning message was sent that all flags be at half-staff for McCain.
Then someone from Denver NPS cancelled the order causing chaos in all the Departments, some then raised the flag back, emails were exchanged back and forth and eventually clarified but it was all thanks to some rogue employee. Should be noted NPS is full of SJW’s
Some in the Departments said they were waiting to hear directly from Whitehouse if you remember DJT was a little busy that morning announcing a YUGE trade deal with Mexico BUT the order had already been sent in the AM declaring it would remain half-staff until TBD.

DJT came down stairs solo, followed by Gen Kelly and Rosenstein together and that dude from Home Improvement that follows RR everywhere, whatever his name is.

Yesterday @LAPDHQ was looking for more victims of this Lyft driver accused of rape, today he was released and no one knows why? Let’s take a wild guess #SanctuaryCity @ICEgov care to explain @AGBecerra why rapists are being let out of jail after days? #TakeBackCalifornia
This is absolutely nuts? How do you go from $2.2 million bail to just “released” and @911LAPD doesn’t know why? We need more than that @JerryBrownGov @DHSgov anybody?…

Well it was rumored but now we know it's true, it wasn't just Hillary using a personal device and private email it was Albright, Powell, Rice, Kerry and their immediate staff! No wonder nothing happened to HRC, everyone was putting National Security at risk.
The big solution: remove classified material from unclassified papers, WOW that's a wizardly idea #SMH…
They reviewed a very limited sample and found 12 of the 19 contained National Security information 🤣 China must have spent years pointing and laughing at us.
