On the same day of the horrific shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas that left 10 dead and 10 others wounded, Dana Loesch, a spokesman for the National Rifle Association, called out the mainstream Media for quote, “creating” mass shooters.
A student who survived the Texas school shooting on Friday has spoken out about the accused gunman, saying that he was 'emotionally bullied' by his classmates and coaches.
Dustin Severin, an 11th-grade student at Santa Fe High School, told KRIV that the suspected shooter, 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtiz, was constantly teased at school, but that he believed it never escalated into anything physical.
"I know he's picked on by coaches and other students. He didn't really talk to anyone," he told the station. "My friends from the football team told me that coaches said he smelled, like, right in front of his face. And other kids would look at him and laugh at him ... nothing like physical but they still emotionally bullied him."
"I never thought he would just snap and shoot up the school," Severin added. "He didn't seem like he was a hateful person."
Britain is starting to overtake America in obesity rates, with the latest figures showing that more children in England are classed as obese at the age of 11 than in the US.
The proportion of US children aged 9 to 11 who are obese is 18.5%. The figure for children in their final year of primary school in England is at a record high of 20%.
Secondary-school children are also more obese. In the Health Survey for England, 23% of children aged 11 to 15 were obese in 2016. In America, 20.6% of children aged 12 to 15 were obese.
Simon Capewell, a professor in public health and policy at Liverpool University, said: 'Our worst fears have come to pass. We have completely adopted the American lifestyle with the inevitable consequences. The government needs to stand up for our children.
Rep. Devin Nunes: If any of that is true, if they ran a spy ring or an informant ring and they were paying people within the Trump campaign, if any of that is true that is an absolute red line. There’s not and honest person in this country who could believe that taxpayer dollars going to fund this ring and operate like this what is said in The New York Times that has quite a bit of detail on it, if any of that is true it’s a red line in this country. You can’t do this to political campaigns. According to them this was done in the spring before the counter-intelligence was even open. If that’s true, we need to know about it… If they paid someone it’s an absolute red line and this is over with!”
Judge Jeanine: I want you to remember that you heard it here first. Any “collector,” their name for an informant working on a national campaign, must have a sign off by the Attorney General. Here that would be liar Loretta Lynch. Lynch, herself, would of have to have approved an informant on that campaign. And if she didn’t then the FBI under James Comey was even more corrupt, going rogue in their attempt to destroy Donald Trump.
The mother of the student killed first during Friday's shooting at Santa Fe, says the suspect pursued her daughter.
Earth has cooled 0.454 degrees Celsius since Donald Trump got elected. That’s the fastest 20 month cooling period since 1916. Another Trump triumph.
Did Glenn Beck just jump on the Trump train? It’s really hard to believe Beck after he rolled his face in a bunch Cheetos to mock President Trump. This might be a case of “better late than never” but conservative radio host Glenn Beck announced during his Friday show that despite his opposition in the past, he would vote for President Donald Trump in 2020.
Beck began by predicting that Trump would win re-election, and then he explained why:
“Here’s why I’m predicting a 2020 win. When I saw yesterday how the press was all reporting the same damn story — that Donald Trump was calling MS-13 gang members (they left that out of the story) ‘animals’ — they were spinning it as if he was saying that about all immigrants. I had enough. I’ve had enough.”
Beck then took out a red Make America Great Again hat, saying, “Media, if you can get me, Glenn Beck, to do this … If you can drive me to the point where I say, ‘you know, I’ve had enough,’ I’ll vote for him in 2020. Gladly, I’ll vote for him in 2020. And not really even on his record, which we’ll talk about here in a second, is pretty damn amazing.”
Social media stars and Trump supporters Diamond and Silk take on the news of the day. Jesse Watters.
LeBron James dropped 27 points in Cleveland’s 116-86 blowout win over the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday night.
Shortly before the end of the first half, though, James may have, sort of, interacted with a Donald Trump supporter sitting in the front row at Quicken Loans Arena while he was checking into the game.
After checking in at the scorer’s table, James was about to make his way into the game when he went to toss his sweat towel off to the side and away from the court.
A man wearing a red Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” hat was sitting in the front row, right next to where James was standing. The man motioned for James to toss him the towel — which would be an incredible souvenir to take home from any game James plays in, let alone a playoff game.
James, though, did not toss the man the towel. Instead, he hesitated a moment while looking in the man’s direction and then tossed the towel off to the side.
Tapper to Mark Warner: Shootings Did Not Just Start in the Trump Admin.; They Have Been Going on for Decades and Democrats Did Nothing -- Mark Warner: "I think this epidemic seems to have gotten much worse in the last 10 years. There are plenty of things we could have pointed back to the '80s and 90s that perhaps in retrospect more should have been done. The fact is it is now 2018. We have these tragedies it feels like once a quarter. There are a few days with the exception of what happened after parkland and my hope and my appeal to everyone is let's do an all of the above. For those folks that I work with in the Congress, take a moment and let your position evolve. There are ways that we can put reasonable restraints without dramatically interfering with people's Second Amendment rights."
Former President Barack Obama's education secretary said that parents should boycott their children's schools until the country's gun laws are changed.
Arne Duncan tweeted Friday that it's "tragically necessary" to pull kids out of schools in order to keep them safe from potential gun violence.
His opinion was in response to Education Department former employee Peter Cunningham's tweet that first suggested the move.
Duncan's sentiments come just days after a high school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, that left 10 dead and another 10 wounded.
Washington and Beijing have agreed to abandon any trade war and back off from imposing tariffs on each other, Chinese state media reported Sunday.
The announcement came after high-level talks in the US capital and followed months of tensions over what President Donald Trump has blasted as an unfair commercial relationship between the two economic giants.
Vice-Premier Liu He, who led Chinese negotiators in Washington said: "The two sides reached a consensus, will not fight a trade war, and will stop increasing tariffs on each other," state-run news agency Xinhua reported Sunday.

Explosions rocked a nearby military airfield in Hama Province on Friday, with the exact cause of the incident yet to be determined. According to reports, the blasts hit depots containing weapons and oil.
A 15-year-old girl is accused of shooting her would-be sugar daddy in the stomach after she demanded money while partying at the married man's home.
Raelyn Domingo was arrested on Wednesday for first-degree assault and robbery after she went to the 56-year-old's home in Beaverton, Oregon last week.
Just hours after the shooting, Domingo was involved in another robbery in nearby Camas, Washington that targeted a different man she had been speaking to online.
Maxine Waters is showing her low IQ with her latest comments. She makes the claim in the video below that President trump’s D.C. hotel is “Unconstitutional” and is “very criminal looking”.
We think President Trump was spot on when he said Maxine has a low I.Q. during a speech in Pennsylvania.
Chris Hayes asked, “Is it problematic to you that the president and the Republican Party use and promote this hotel, the president is so clearly benefiting from?”
“Well, absolutely,” Waters said. “And you know, questions have been raised about that. And I think one organization that looks into this kind of thing….have, you know, asked for investigations into whether or not there’s a violation of the Constitution, or whether or not laws have been broken because obviously, it appears that the president is, you know, helping to direct business and he’s making money on it, and that there are those who are coming from foreign countries who are glad to comply with this request to stay at the hotel because they think they’re going to create some favor with him.” “And so, it’s all very criminal looking,” Waters added.
Sean Hannity said that new reports that the Obama-era FBI placed a spy inside the Trump campaign are "worse than Watergate."
Hannity said it is unbelievable that President Obama's director of national intelligence Jim Clapper, said such spying was "a good thing."
"Has he ever heard of the Constitution?" Hannity asked, calling Clapper "pompous and arrogant."
He said Obama's CIA Director John Brennan was reportedly involved in untoward activities against the Trump campaign.
Former Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz said Saturday that reports of an FBI informant who was placed inside the 2016 Trump campaign is "spying by the very definition."
A New York Times report stated that the investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russia began in the summer of 2016 and was code-named Crossfire Hurricane.
The report also stated that "at least one government informant met several times" with Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.
This is astonishing.
Not because former UFC and current Bellator heavyweight Frank Mir was mixed up in today’s huge weigh-in rumpus, alongside veteran MMA referee Herb Dean, but rather because there were 86 ACB events prior to this one.
Who the hell are these people?
A quick Google search tells me the promotion is Absolute Championship Berkut, and suddenly I remember its that Russian group who aligned with Mir to start promoting fights in the United States.
And Mir will be competing for them this August across the pond, per Jim Edwards, before rejoining the ranks of Bellator MMA.
“I would like to get a fight in with the ACB before that, so I can just get more time in clocked under me so I can get my timing back on for fighting,” Mir said.
During an interview with President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani on Friday’s New Day, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo feared that the administration may throw him and other journalists in jail for reporting on leaks about the Russia investigation. Giuliani dismissed the melodramatic fretting and even jokingly offered to serve as Cuomo’s legal counsel.
After Giuliani condemned former FBI Director James Comey for leaking memos about his private meetings with the President to the press, Cuomo jumped in to praise the leaks: “Look, people leak. No, I’m not anti-leak, because I’m a journalist. I like leaks. I like to get the information so I can test power and get transparency....You’ve got whistle blowers all over the place that make a difference for the American people.”
Jehmu Greene: To your first question that the outrage that I guess is coming from the left, I think what is outrageous here is that no one would be surprised if President Trump himself hadn’t personally funded multiple abortions.
Pete Hegseth: Do you have any proof of that? You’re just tossing that out?
Jehmu Greene: No. I have no evidence. I’m saying would you be surprised?
Kristin Tate: You just can’t say that without any evidence. That is so irresponsible!
Jehmu Greene: Would you be surprised, Pete?
Hip-hop mogul P. Diddy has been revealed as the buyer of Chicago artist Kerry James Marshall’s “Past Times,” the work that sold at auction this week for $21 million, a price believed to be near the maximum paid for a living artist.
Marshall’s New York dealer, Jack Shainman, told the New York Times that P. Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs, is the work’s buyer.
“I know that this work has found a home in a collection with purpose and an eye toward preserving legacy — that of Sean Combs, and that means a lot,” Shainman said in the Times report.
Celebrity art collectors, and rapper art collectors in particular, are nothing new. P. Diddy went public in a significant way with his predilections in 2011 when he splashed for a pair of works at Art Basel in Miami Beach, where he has become something of a fixture. Jay-Z is rumored to be the rap music world’s biggest collector of works, with a hoard estimated in value at something around a half-billion dollars. Producer Swizz Beatz acquired an Ansel Adams photograph when still a teenager, and has a substantial collection. The megasale to P. Diddy, however, lays down a significant marker. Given the new attention being paid to African-American artists in the market, other eye-opening auction prices could follow.
Like Jay-Z, who enlisted art adviser Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn in the late oughts, P. Diddy hired art adviser Maria Brito when he began collecting, to help him fine-tune his eye and expand his collection.
In a 2014 Daily Beast profile, Brito said, “I don’t want to take credit for bringing him into the art world, but before me, he didn’t really have any art. … He never had a chance for someone to explain things to him in a way that would engage his mind, like how to look at contemporary and conceptual art.”
A former pro wrestler was brutally beaten and kicked by a group of young men in California earlier this week, police said.
The victim has been identified as Tom Magee, a retired strongman competitor and contender in the World Wrestling Federation. Magee, who’s more than 6 feet tall, was a force to be reckoned with in his heyday, having once set a world record with a 1,180-pound deadlift.
Despite his impressive past, police say Magee, who will turn 60 in July, didn’t stand a chance against an onslaught of fists and feet delivered by six young men Tuesday morning.
The beating, which occurred outside Magee’s Mar Vista home, was so severe, according to police, that it left him with a broken jaw, broken eye socket and concussion.
Officer Christopher No with the Los Angeles Police Department told HuffPost a “neighborhood dispute” led to the incident.
“There was an altercation and Magee got assaulted and beaten,” No said.
Neighbors in the Northwest part of the Valley said a group of teens have been terrorizing their community near Elkhorn and Fort Apache.
On April 27, the group of teens were recorded on cell phone video attacking a woman. Neighbors said the woman was attacked three times and suffered a sprained ankle and broken finger.
"Sixty kids came out of no where and just rushed everyone," Jon Harris said of his wife's attack. "I don't know how it started but we turned around and my wife was getting jumped by a bunch of kids."
In the same video that captured the attack, the group of teens were seen picking up baseball size rocks and throwing them. Many of those rocks, neighbors said hit homes and cars.
"They hit my neighbors' wife with those rocks," Harris said. "He was also hit trying to protect his wife."
As shocking as the video was to watch, neighbors said this is the new normal in their area.
"I want people to know that video where my neighbor is getting beat, this isn't a one time thing," Eric Phillips said. Phillips is a middle school math teacher, and lives in the neighborhood.
Others there said the teens have been causing problems in the area for months.
"You can't drive down the street. They stop cars they try to get in the cars. They start banging on cars," Harris said. "We know there names, we have pictures we have videos we have spoke to their parents. I mean two to three times a day they are an issue and 2-3 times a day police come. Police handcuff them, then 10 minutes later you see them back walking around."
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Santa Fe school shooting suspect Dimitrios Pagourtzis obtained the two guns used in the murders from his father.
Abbott, a Republican, said the elder Pagourtzis legally owned the weapons and that "neither of the weapons was legally possessed" by Dimitrios.
The governor said the suspect intended to commit suicide after the shooting, according to his journal entries, but that the 17-year-old told arresting officers "he didn't have the courage" to kill himself.
Texas Lieutenant Gov. Dan Patrick said parents and students affected by the Santa Fe school shooting told him they would support arming teachers as a defense against a gunman.
Patrick said the Texas state government already allows teachers to be armed, leaving the ultimate decision up to each district's superintendent.
"They all said 'we want to arm our teachers,'" he said.
