  1. They never want to limit guns in any kind of way whatsoever
  2. This made me tear up Grieving husband of teacher killed in Texas school shooting has died, family says Joe Garcia had been married to his high school sweetheart, Irma, for 24 years before she was gunned down at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. May 26, 2022, 3:17 PM EDT By Daniella Silva The husband of one of the teachers killed in a Texas school shooting this week collapsed and died on Thursday while preparing for his wife's funeral, the family said. Joe Garcia had been married to high school sweetheart, Irma Garcia, for 24 years before she was gunned down Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. Irma Garcia. Uvalde CISD “I don’t even know how to feel. I don’t believe it. I don’t want to believe it” that Joe Garcia has passed away, Irma Garcia's nephew, John Martinez, told NBC News. Irma Garcia and co-teacher Eva Mireles were both killed along with 19 children at the school that's about 85 miles west of San Antonio. Her son, Christian Garcia, said a friend in law enforcement who was at the scene saw his mother shielding students during the rampage. Martinez said he was told that Joe Garcia “went to go deliver flowers for Irma at the memorial for her." "When he got home, he was at home for no more than three minutes after sitting down on a chair with the family. He just fell over. They tried doing chest compressions and nothing worked. The ambulance came and they couldn’t, they couldn’t bring them back.” Martinez said he first learned the news from his younger brother. “He called me and he said like, ‘Please pray for Joe.’ That’s all he told me," Martinez said. "And I said. 'What happened? 'And he was like, 'I don’t know. We don’t know yet.' And then I get a call I think, no more than 30 minutes later with him crying and saying he didn’t make it.” This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
  3. My God I can’t imagine what’s she’s going through. She saw them shot dead, pretended to be dead, and got her dead teacher’s phone to call 911 for help. Texas school shooting survivor smeared blood on herself, played dead: parents By Snejana Farberov May 26, 2022 1:43pm Updated Miah Cerrillo (right) evaded the shooter by going into “survival mode,” her family said. KPRC When an 11-year-old student at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, saw her friend get fatally shot in front of her inside their fourth-grade class Tuesday, she went into what her aunt called “survivor mode” and smeared the other girl’s blood on her body to convince the gunman that she, too, was dead. “My sister-in-law said is that she saw her friend full of blood, and she got blood and put it on herself,” Blanca Rivera told station KPRC of her niece, Miah Cerrillo. Before playing dead, the quick-thinking girl also managed to grab her dead teacher’s phone and call 911 for help. Miah survived one of the worst mass school shootings in US history, but her family says the harrowing ordeal has left her traumatized. Rivera, the girl’s aunt, said at around midnight on the night of the shooting, she got a call from Miah’s mom, saying that the fourth-grader was having a “panic attack.” The massacre claimed the lives of 19 students and their two teachers, Eva Mireles and Irma Garcia. Several others were injured, among them Miah, who was left with multiple bullet fragments in her back. Law enforcement eventually shot and killed the suspected gunman, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, who had barricaded himself inside the classroom and spent 40 minutes executing children and adults as desperate parents standing outside the schoolbegged cops at the scene to go inside. Miguel Cerrillo, Miah’s father, told the Washington Post that when he learned of the active shooter situation, he raced to Robb Elementary School and got there just in time to see a police officer carrying his bloodied daughter out of the building. The girl, whose left side was covered in lacerations, and whose hair was singed by gunfire, was loaded onto a school bus, but her dad was prevented from joining her. Instead, Cerrillo said, they talked through a window about what Miah had witnessed inside the classroom. The fourth-grader told her dad that she saw her teacher Eva Mireles get shot as she was holding her phone, Cerrillo recounted. Miah grabbed Mireles’ phone and used it to dial 911. The gunman then shot Miah’s friend, and she decided to play dead by lying on top of the mortally wounded girl, who was bleeding profusely. Cerrillo said his daughter told him that initially, the wounded classmate was still breathing, but she later succumbed to her injuries. After being rescued from the building by police, Miah was treated at a local hospital and released. According to her father and aunt, Miah spent the night in a state of panic, telling her dad to arm himself because “[the gunman is] gong to come get us.” Miah is one of five children in her family. Her younger sister is a second-grader at Robb Elementary School and was not harmed in the shooting.
  4. The Senate is basically Republican controlled with fake Democrat Manchin. They refuse to vote in favor of nearly every single thing from him and Democrats. They’re worse than they were during the Obama years.
  5. This country is under hostage from 50 senators who refuse to ever do anything whatsoever about this.
  6. That’s not him. Transphobes and bots are posting random pics of trans Hispanics online claiming that’s him. There’s no proof he was even trans.
  7. Elon Musk loses $12 billion in a day as he tweets politics PUBLISHED: May 19, 2022 at 5:08 a.m. | UPDATED: May 19, 2022 at 5:56 a.m. By Brian Chappatta | Bloomberg Elon Musk spent Wednesday on Twitter, announcing his political switch from Democrat to Republican, trashing ESG and replying to several users of the social-media website he’s agreed to buy. Tesla, meanwhile, sank to the lowest level this year, wiping $12.3 billion from his wealth, while Twitter further extended its slide. All told, Musk has lost $49 billion since launching his bid for Twitter last month, partly as the wider market tumbled and as some investors in Tesla grew concerned over how he’d fund his offer for the social-media giant. Musk, 50, remains the world’s richest person, with a fortune of $209.9 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. He’s shaved $60.4 billion off his wealth this year, trailing only Binance’s Changpeng Zhao, who’s down $81 billion, and Jeff Bezos’s $62 billion drop. Tesla’s CEO has grown increasingly vocal since launching his $44 billion offer for Twitter. Wednesday was no exception. He tweeted that ESG was “a scam” after Tesla lost its spot on an S&P Global index that tracks companies on their environmental, social and governance standards. He also predicted that “political attacks” on him would “escalate dramatically in coming months.” In a separate tweet, Musk said he’d supported Democrats in the past because “they were (mostly) the kindness party,” but has now changed his mind. “They have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican,” he said.
  8. Never-ending mass shootings and racism in the good ol’ USA. The monster was live streaming it!
  9. https://nypost.com/2022/04/27/elon-musk-banned-from-criticizing-twitter-under-terms-of-44b-buyout/ Elon Musk banned from criticizing Twitter under terms of $44B buyout By Thomas Barrabi April 27, 2022 10:27am Updated Elon Musk’s $44 billion Twitter buyout agreement includes a bizarre clause banning him from tweeting criticism about the company – though the billionaire already appears to be testing the rule’s limits. An SEC filing published this week detailing the agreement notes Musk – identified in the document as “equity investor” – “shall be permitted to issue Tweets about the Merger or the transactions contemplated hereby so long as such Tweets do not disparage the Company or any of its Representatives.” Current Twitter employees have expressed concern about Musk’s brash communication style on the platform, which he regularly uses to relay key information about his other firms, such as Tesla and SpaceX, and to poke fun at rivals such as Bill Gatesand Bernie Sanders. The clause was implemented following contentious negotiations between Twitter’s board of directors and Musk — who has vowed to re-center the platform to protect free speech. Musk publicly stated his belief that Twitter’s outgoing leadership wasn’t equipped to bring the company to his full potential, while the board initially enacted a “poison pill” provision to limit his leverage during buyout talks. While the provision is designed to prevent Musk from being critical of Twitter while the company is in limbo, the tech entrepreneur is still taking aim at some current staffers. On Tuesday evening, Musk tweeted that top Twitter lawyer Vijaya Gadde’s decision to ban The Post’s story about Hunter Biden’s laptop ahead of the 2020 presidential election was “obviously incredibly inappropriate.” Musk’s jab came in response to a post from podcast host Saagar Enjeti, who shared a Politico article revealing Gadde broke down in tears while discussing the takeover. Musk also responded to another tweet from right-wing influencer Michael Cernovich, who shared a Washington Post article about Twitter deputy general counsel Jim Baker and claimed he had “facilitated fraud.” “Sounds pretty bad,” Musk said. Twitter did not immediately return a request for comment. The Twitter muzzle clause is one of several noteworthy provisions included in Musk’s agreement with the company’s board of directors. The SEC filing revealed that both Musk and Twitter are subject to a $1 billion breakup fee if they fail to follow the agreement’s terms. That fee would only apply under certain conditions, such as if Twitter accepted a different offer from a third party or if Musk’s financing falls through before the deal is complete. The document also provides clarity on how Twitter will handle employees’ stock holdings when the company goes private – with workers holding awards that have yet to vest given the option of being paid out in cash.
  10. Ouch but it’s probably just temporary
