Michigan High School Stocks Classrooms With ‘Safety Bucket’ In Case Of Active Shooter

Comfort items while sheltering in place waiting for law enforcement.


They are kits no one hopes to use, but ones a local school district said could save a life in the event of the unimaginable.

To prepare for an active shooter, the Clio School District is arming its classrooms with supplies.

Heidi Hummel and her classmates are gearing up for their senior year at Clio High School.

In this day and age, in light of all the school shootings, back-to-school prep has taken a more somber tone. This year at Clio, every classroom will have what’s called a “safety bucket.”

“We are unloading them and using them in the event of a lockdown situation. We’re also going to use them as food and supplies if we were ever locked down for a long time,” Hummel said.

The buckets will go into every classroom in the district.

Assistant Principal Kevin Ayre said the school needs the public’s help to fill the buckets with potentially life-saving supplies.

“They’re going to be filled with gauze, bandages, water. You know, necessities in the situation that we have to be in a long-term lockdown,” Ayre said.

Walmart donated 144 buckets. Students and faculty said they are great because in the case of an emergency they could be used as bathrooms as well.

The Clio Menards is taking donations for needed items.

Clio Principal Lisa Taylor said her school has been trained in ALICE, alert-lockdown-inform-counter-evacuate, and these buckets will just continue to help students feel more comfortable.

“I mean, when you look at our kids, my daughter goes to Clio. I have a high schooler and another one in elementary. And I look at this as a parent too. I want our students to come here and feel like, ‘wow, I feel like I’m safe,’” Taylor said.

Texas Dad Delivers His Own Daughter In A Chick-Fil-A Bathroom

Via Daily Mail:

A baby girl born in a Chick-fil-A bathroom has been guaranteed food for life and a job at the fast food chain.

Falon Griffin was having contractions on Tuesday night when she and her husband Robert stopped at a Chick-fil-A in San Antonio to drop off their two daughters with a family friend.

The restaurant had already closed up at 10pm, but Falon desperately needed to use the restroom, so the couple banged on the door and was let in by employees cleaning up inside.

By the time Falon made it to the bathroom, the situation took a dramatic turn when the mom began to scream.

Store director Brenda Enriquez said she heard the mom scream from the bathroom and rushed outside to alert Robert, who had been saying goodbye to the kids.

Robert rushed into the bathroom and quickly realized there was no way the couple would be making it to a hospital for the delivery.

‘So there we were…..my wife and I in a tiny stall in the bathroom, and I could see the top of our little girls head crowning as [Falon] was straddling the toilet. I told [Falon]: “Sweetie, we are gonna have to do this right here, right now,'” the dad wrote on Facebook.

‘After shouting to the manager to call 911 and to bring any clean towels, [Falon] and I started delivering our baby.’

As soon as the baby’s shoulders came out, Robert realized that the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck twice.

‘Didn’t want to alert my wife, so just told her try to relax for a minute and I was somehow able to unwrap the chord from the baby’s neck,’ he wrote.

‘With two more strong pushes, and using my shirt for a towel, out came Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin.’

14-Year-Old Boy Arrested After Memorial Honoring Hero Navy SEAL From Long Island Vandalized

It starts at home.


A 14-year-old was arrested after a memorial honoring a hero Navy SEAL from Long Island was destroyed.

The monument honoring Medal of Honor recipient Lt. Michael P. Murphy of Brookhaven was vandalized Thursday, police said.

Authorities said the suspect was arrested at his Ronkonkoma home early Friday morning on charges of criminal mischief. He is scheduled to be arraigned at Family Court on a later date.

Murphy was awarded the U.S. military’s highest decoration for his heroic actions during the war in Afghanistan.

Murphy’s father says he doesn’t believe the vandal understands the significance of his actions.

“Unfortunately the stonework isn’t here anymore, but if you look at one of the places where he struck Michael was right at the heart, which is like striking at the heart of America,” Daniel Murphy said. “Michael was the type of person who would have wanted to take that man under his wing and talk to him.”

Murphy’s mother said she hopes someone speaks to the boy about what Lt. Murphy and his team of SEALS did for the country. She would like the child to read the book “Lone Survivor” which is about her son’s mission. The book was made into a movie starring Mark Wahlberg.

Whoopi Goldberg Spit On Jeanine Pirro, Screamed ‘Get The F**k Out Of This Building,’ Pirro Claims

Via Daily Wire:

An on-air fight that broke out between ABC’s “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg and Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro did not end on stage as Pirro claims that Goldberg spit on her off stage and screamed at her to “get the f**k out of this building.”

Pirro made the claims while joining Fox News host Sean Hannity’s radio program following “The View” segment.

“I’m still reeling from it to be honest with you,” Pirro told Hannity. “I went on thinking that we would have a discussion about the book. The truth is, that it was an attack on Donald Trump, and then on me. I sat there as Whoopi Goldberg pontificated about how horrible Donald Trump was and at one point I said ‘you know I’m here to talk about the book’ and then she went ballistic – ended the segment.”

Benghazi Warriors Unload On Hillary After She Scolds White House For Hesitating ‘To Defend A Diplomat’

Via Daily Wire:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday night received a pointed tongue lashing from Benghazi warrior Kris Paronto after Clinton audaciously scolded the White House for not defending a U.S. diplomat to her liking.

Paronto is a former Special Forces officer, a surviving member of a six-man security team who claims he was given a “stand down” order from a top CIA officer following distress calls from the State Department concerning a terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, as noted by Politico. Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were murdered during the attack; Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State at the time.

John Tiegen, another member of the security team, also weighed in. He was so angry he refused to even use Hillary’s name, calling her “IT” and “the Thing.”

Report: Tony Podesta Given Immunity If He Testifies Against Paul Manafort

Same offense, Clinton-connected, you get immunity. Trump-connected for three months? You get prosecuted. Equality under the law.

Via Washington Times:

Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly given a key Democratic operative immunity to testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

According to Tucker Carlson, speaking Thursday evening on his Fox News program, Mr. Mueller has offered immunity to Tony Podesta, founder of the Podesta Group and brother of former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Mr. Carlson cited “two sources” whom he did not name.

Both Mr. Manafort and the Podesta Group worked on a campaign named the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, and most of the charges against Mr. Manafort relate to his work there and whether he laundered money for Russian oligarchs, worked as a foreign agent, disclosed his income and status, and related issues.

A lightning rod for the crazy left.

Via Daily Wire:

A seventeen-year-old’s Make America Great Again hat was allegedly snatched and spat on in Seattle, Washington, earlier this week.

France: Elderly Jewish Man Attacked By Man Shouting Praise For Allah And Hitler…

Religion of Peace™

(JTA) — A 69-year-old Jewish man wearing a kippah was assaulted in Paris by a young Arab man who shouted about Allah and Hitler.

In Tuesday’s incident, the alleged assailant hit the Jewish man, pushed him to the ground and dragged him by his hair while shouting “Alla hu akbar, long live Hitler, death to the Jews,” the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA, wrote in a statement Wednesday. The call in Arabic means “Allah is the greatest.”

Police apprehended the suspected assailant, the report said. A police physician recommended transferring the suspect to a psychiatric institution for observation because he was in a “state of over-excitement,” according to the information received by BNVCA.

It was the third time this year that French police sent a man who displayed violent behavior toward Jews for psychiatric evaluation.

BNVCA said it “again deplores that a violent anti-Semite citing Islamism evades judicial treatment because he presents himself as having mental problems which should not and cannot explain or excuse his actions.” Such treatment is “absurd,” the group said.

The victim suffered minor injuries to his head and filed a complaint for assault with police, BNVCA said. The assault came as the man was entering a kosher bakery.

RINO Gov. John Kasich: We Need More Republicans Willing To Stand Up To Trump…

No, we don’t.

Via The Hill:

Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is saying that more members of the Republican Party need to be willing to stand up to President Trump.

“It’s been pretty lonely out here,” Kasich told The Guardian in an interview published on Friday, alluding to how he is one of the few members of the GOP to consistently criticize the president.

“Not that I mind walking a lonely road, I’ve done it most of my career, but always would be good if you had more people who are willing to stand up and say that’s the wrong direction,” Kasich added.

Kasich, who ran for the Republican nomination for president in 2016, goes on to voice how he became a vocal opponent of Trump’s because of “political principle.”

“I’m not a Johnny-come-lately to this,” Kasich said, adding that “most of the people have been upset with [Trump], and then endorse him and then they get upset with him. I just have not operated that way.”

“I did not feel public pressure to have to go and support somebody that I was not convinced was going to pull the country together,” he said.

Baltimore Restaurants Banned From Including Sodas, Sugary Drinks On Kids’ Menus

Nanny government stepping in for the parents.

Via Fox News:

Restaurants in Baltimore are now officially barred from including sodas and other sugary drinks on kids’ menus, according to a city ordinance that went into effect Wednesday.

Baltimore is now the biggest U.S. city and the first on the East Coast to pass this kind of measure, said Shawn McIntosh, director of the Sugar Free Kids Maryland advocacy group. Seven California cities and Lafayette, Colorado, have enacted similar ordinances, according to health officials.

Milk, 100 percent fruit juices, water, and flavored or sparkling water without added sweeteners must now be the default beverages for kids’ meals at Baltimore eateries. Mayor Catherine Pugh signed the legislation earlier this year.

The ordinance is intended to stop youngsters’ overconsumption of sugary drinks, perceived as a key factor in high rates of chronic diseases such as diabetes.

“Taking out empty calories from sugary drinks is a powerful lifestyle change we can make to help our children to get and stay healthy. This law will help families make the healthy choice the easy choice,” Baltimore Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen said in a statement.

Dem Rep. Keith Ellison Demands Amazon Ban Books Not Approved By Far-Left SPLC…

Ellison starts a book-burning protest in 3… 2… 1…

Via Fortune:

Prime Day is here, but Amazon is facing backlash for selling merchandise promoted by known hate groups. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) sent a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Tuesday, voicing concerns about the company’s income from such items.

“I would like to know whether Amazon is committed to ceasing the sale of all products that promote hateful and racist ideologies,” wrote Ellison. “For a company with a policy prohibiting the sale of ‘products that promote or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual, or religious intolerance or promote organizations with such views,’ there appear to be a disturbing number of groups with hateful, racist, and violent agendas making money using Amazon’s platform.”

Ellison said that hate groups have been on the rise since the election of Donald Trump, and Amazon has historically failed to prevent hate groups and associated individuals identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) from making money on its platform. Ellison lists a range of the products in question available on Amazon, including children’s toys, clothes, and Kindle books.

“The availability of all the material listed in the aforementioned report indicates to me that either Amazon is willfully refusing to enforce its own policies against the sale of racist products, or its sheer size makes it impossible for the company to police itself,” wrote Ellison. “In either event, Amazon must immediately cease doing business with groups that promote racist violence.”

Gov. Cuomo Confirms Probe Into Possible Trump Foundation Tax Law Violations

Another fishing expedition.

Via Washington Examiner:

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance is investigating the Trump Foundation for possible violation of tax law, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo confirmed Thursday.

“For the Trump Foundation, the law is the law. It doesn’t matter who you are, the law is the law,” Cuomo said, according to Politico.

Cuomo declined to offer further details, but two officials familiar with the matter said Wednesday the probe could lead to a criminal referral for possible prosecution, according to the New York Times.

This comes after attorney general Barbara D. Underwood filed a lawsuit last month against the Trump Foundation, President Donald Trump, and three of Trump’s children, accusing them of self-dealing, violating campaign finance laws, and coordinating illegally with Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Members of the Trump foundation said the lawsuit was “politically motivated.”

A Cuomo administration official said it is too early to tell whether the case would be referred to the attorney general or a district attorney, according to the New York Times.
