TEXAS SCHOOL WARNING: SCHOOL STAFF ARE ARMED TO PROTECT ARGYLE STUDENTS

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Sheriff Paul Cairney of Argyle, Texas: “To become a school marshal, those employees must undergo extensive active shooter and firearms training with the state. They must also undergo a mental health evaluation.”

 

( Daily Caller ) On MSNBC this weekend, Sheriff Paul Cairney of Argyle, Texas, described the process by which staff members can carry firearms in the school district. The Sheriff said that the staff at the school who choose to carry a firearm go through an intense round of interviews and training before they are allowed to carry on campus. The MSNBC host was flabbergasted at the practice and asked the Sheriff about concerns for the safety of the students in the school when there are firearms around.

 

The Sheriff said the practice is heavily restricted, but the “time to do nothing is over”  when it comes to combating school shooters.

 

Here is the process to carry a firearm in the Argyle school district, according to a recent ABC report:

To become a school marshal, those employees must undergo extensive active shooter and firearms training with the state. They must also undergo a mental health evaluation.

They receive a school marshal designation by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement and must renew their license every two years by undergoing the same training and evaluation.

Outside of campuses in Keene and Argyle, signs warn visitors that there are staff members who are armed and are prepared to protect children.

HEY LIBS! SOVIET LEADER BORIS YELTSIN ABANDONED COMMUNISM AFTER WALKING INTO A TEXAS GROCERY STORE

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Soviet leader Boris Yeltsin: If the lines of starving men, women and children in Russia were to see the conditions of America’s supermarkets, “there would be a revolution.”
  •  “When I saw those shelves crammed with hundreds, thousands of cans, cartons and goods of every possible sort, for the first time I felt quite frankly sick with despair for the Soviet people.”
  • In photos taken by the Chronicle, Yeltsin could be seen “marveling at the produce section, the fresh fish market, and the checkout counter. He looked especially excited about frozen pudding pops.”

 

( Conservative Tribune ) Very few people know this, but one of the most famous Soviet officials in Russian history originally learned of the many advantages of capitalism at a regular ol’ Randalls grocery store nearly three decades ago.

In 1989, then-Communist Party of the Soviet Union member Boris Yeltsin traveled to the United States to visit the Johnson Space Center in Texas, according to the Houston Chronicle.

While in Houston for the visit, he also stopped by a Randalls grocery store, where he “roamed the aisles of Randall’s nodding his head in amazement,” according to an account of the visit written by then-Chronicle reporter Stefanie Asin.

 

He further told his fellow comrades who followed him to America for the visit that if the lines of starving men, women and children in Russia were to see the conditions of America’s supermarkets, “there would be a revolution.”

In photos of the visit reportedly taken by the Chronicle, Yeltsin could be seen “marveling at the produce section, the fresh fish market, and the checkout counter. He looked especially excited about frozen pudding pops.”

“Even the Politburo doesn’t have this choice. Not even Mr. Gorbachev,” he himself reportedly said, referring to the then-president of the Soviet Union.

Even after Yeltsin left Houston, he still remained transfixed by the luxuries we as Americans have always considered normal.

“For a long time, on the plane to Miami, he sat motionless, his head in his hands,” wrote biography Leon Aron in his 2000 book, “Yeltsin, A Revolutionary Life,”  basing his account on quotes from Yeltsin’s associates, according to The New York Times.

“‘What have they done to our poor people?’ he said after a long silence. On his return to Moscow, Yeltsin would confess the pain he had felt after the Houston excursion: the ‘pain for all of us, for our country so rich, so talented and so exhausted by incessant experiments.’”

Experiments in communism, to be precise.

Yeltsin reportedly admitted to these thoughts in his own autobiography, writing, “When I saw those shelves crammed with hundreds, thousands of cans, cartons and goods of every possible sort, for the first time I felt quite frankly sick with despair for the Soviet people.”

About 150 male students, ages 11 to 13, signed up for the Breakfast with Dads event, which was held on December 14, 2017, but Kristina Dove, the senior partner relations manager at Big Thought, a youth development nonprofit, wasn’t sure if every student would have a father present during the program.

WOW! DEMOCRAT REP: “Don’t you know who I am? I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Where is my seafood meal?”

Posted on

 

The congresswoman in question was Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas. And until she lands on the no-fly list, no airline is safe. Jackson Lee has been terrorizing the skies since coming to Congress in 1995.

The Democrat has developed a reputation for making life hell for any clerk, stewardess, or pilot unwilling or unable to make her three-and-a-half-hour flight anything less than glamorous. She takes advantage of federal travel perks to book multiple flights (only to cancel at the last minute and at no charge). She demands an upgrade to premier seats. She expects, in her words, “to be treated like a queen.”

Sometimes it gets ugly. For instance, when one peasant of a flight attendant failed to serve the food Jackson Lee requested, the congresswoman went wild. “Don’t you know who I am?” she reportedly shrieked. “I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Where is my seafood meal? I know it was ordered!”

 

That inflight incident was in 1998, and Jackson Lee has only increased in seniority since. She sits on the Committee on Homeland Security and she serves as the ranking member of the subcommittee on transportation security, no doubt, giving her even more sway over the airlines and even more of a reason to feel entitled.

When accused of taking an ill-gotten first-class seat, Jackson Lee was adamant she didn’t do anything wrong. It’s just the way she expects to be treated. “I asked for nothing exceptional or out of the ordinary and received nothing exceptional or out of the ordinary,” the congresswoman said in a statement. Slay queen.

SOURCE: UNITED KNOWS SHEILA JACKSON LEE PLAYS THE RACE CARD IF SHE’S NOT TREATED LIKE ‘ROYALTY’

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Sheila Jackson Lee suggested that the school teacher’s grievance may have something to do with the fact that she is an African American.
  • One person said he had witnessed Lee ‘cutting in line and rudely taking advantage of her status before’. He claimed that United knows Lee would play the race card if ‘she isn’t treated like royalty’.

 

( Daily Mail ) A school teacher from Washington, DC has accused United Airlines of evicting her from her first-class seat and giving it to senior Democratic congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

Jean-Marie Simon, 63, was preparing to board her final flight home from George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston on December 18 after an hour-long weather delay when she was told by the gate attendant that her ticket was not in the system.

…She was told by another passenger that her original seat was occupied by a congresswoman and that he had seen her do it twice before.

Other people on the flight claim they have witnessed the congresswoman carry out similar behavior at least three times before.

‘I’ve seen Lee and IAH cutting in line and rudely taking advantage of her status before. United knows she will play the race card if she isn’t treated like royalty so they just give in. They don’t care about a hard working teacher vs a privileged idiot,’ one person tweeted.

Simon said before take off the plane was delayed for nearly an hour due to mechanical problems. During this time Simon said she went to the front of the plane and snapped a picture of Jackson Lee in her seat.

She then told a flight attendant she believed she was bumped from her seat by the airline out of favoritism toward a senior politician.

In a statement on Saturday, Jackson Lee said: ‘I asked for nothing exceptional or out of the ordinary and received nothing exceptional or out of the ordinary.’

Jackson Lee said Simon, who is white, confronted a black flight attendant about the perceived slight.

The congresswoman suggested that her grievance may have something to do with the fact that she is an African American.

 

Jackson Lee (seen above giving a speech in Washington, DC on September 20) suggested that Simon, who is white, complained to the airline because she and one of the flight attendants are African American women, thus making them easy targets

 

SHEILA’S ALLEGED PAST BEHAVIOR:

Simon claims she was told by another passenger that her original seat was occupied by Sheila Jackson Lee and that he had seen her do it twice before.

Other people on the flight claim they have witnessed the congresswoman carry out similar behavior at least three times before.

One person said he had witnessed Lee ‘cutting in line and rudely taking advantage of her status before’. He claimed that United knows Lee would play the race card if ‘she isn’t treated like royalty’.

Reports from back in 1995 when Lee first came to Washington allege that she was routinely chauffeured just one block to work in a government car at the taxpayers’ expense, the Standard reports.
