A common myth you can expect to hear a lot in the coming days and weeks is that the United States “leads the world in mass shootings” and therefore we must pass some law that will do nothing to stop future mass shootings, but will infringe on the rights of law-abiding gun owners.
What you might not hear is that this claim is completely bogus.
The following video from John Stossel explains how the myth got started and why it's bogus:

A gem of a thread from @drawandstrike bringing it all together.
Democratic political apparatus in the big cities are going to get exposed. That is the aim of Trump to expose its parasitic existance and remove it.
Great article by Jeff Carlson on Rod Rosenstein's legacy.
In the end, I think Rosenstein was a very strong and brave defender of the US Constitution.
As for Rosenstein signing the Page FISA : remember, the signature is only on the last page. It would be easy for desperate crooks to attach Rosenstein's signature page to an entirely different doc, to the one Rosenstein was given. And as Rosenstein said, he wasn't the affiant anyway.
"This thread will be one of the most important threads I make on Twitter. The illegal case behind this will be exposed with full transparency, in full details. For now, I direct the following information to: @realDonaldTrump, @VP, @jaredkushner, @DonaldJTrumpJr, @seanhannity "
All the violent, radical left has done is awaken the sleeping giant, the silent majority, and fill them with a terrible resolve!
When honorable Americans truly sense their "home" is under attack, regardless of ideology, they will unite and defend her. They will fight shoulder to shoulder to protect her foundations, institutions and her principles. When rights, freedoms and liberties are no longer taken for granted an unconquerable passion replaces it.
Hollywood execs are patting themselves on the back for inventing the “strong, female, character.” Somewhere Chaucer and Shakespeare smolder, wondering when they can expect their royalty checks. Indeed, so is God. The strong, female character is as old as Deborah in the Book of Judges.
The great irony is that strong, female characters were once a matter of course in Hollywood.
Wikileaks calls their sources "whistleblowers," but in the case I just described, Manning gave Assange the documents because he's insane and permanently angry.
The "whistleblower" Ethan McCord is a liar who claims that US troops had NO RULES OF ENGAGEMENT.
In reality, our rules of engagement got our troops killed for years.
Finally found it.
My favorite thread.
Another timeless pearl.
"The Dismal Eight"
Sat Dec 23 2017
(1) When the history of the Obama years is written, they will come to be known as the Dismal Eight. The time in which our system of checks and balances was intentionally dismantled by an amoral cabal bent on imposing its will on the American people.
Just now from POTUS. GREAT NUMBERS! 👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Watch this Friesian filly encounter grass for the first time. You can almost hear her say, "Mom may eat that green stuff, but I'm not." Kids are the same no matter how many legs they have.
Cute filly Lieke first time in the field.

ASSANGE - remember, whatever he was in the past, he was corrupted by Russia and IMO, Pakistan and China as well.
Clinton vs Trump was the PERFECT opportunity to wreak havoc.
This guy became an ideological fanatic, determined to destroy western democracies. Target #1 - the USA.
Too many people wanted instant gratification.
When they didn't get it, they became bitter children.
Since Trump's election, I saw one of my worst fears realized: Most people are imbeciles.
People like you and your brother make up for that. You EVOLVED. That's very rare.
So I'm grateful.
AOC boyfriend steals from (sorry, 'diverts') campaign cash into his own companies. $1
AOC suddenly starts buying luxury suits, watches, jewelry and shoes. AND moves into luxury apartment. Coincidence?
Life is short-avoid squandering the minutes and learn to live well. Be awake...propaganda is meant to propagate in the lulls AND outrage

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
