Flotsam and Jetsam - Gnashing of Teeth over Nashville, IRS 'Drops In' on Matt Taibbi, No 'Trumpmas' This Week

Not shockingly, the conversation is all over the shooting of 3 children and 3 adults, by a transactivist, who was in turn killed by police. Body cam footage  here, here and here. It appears the police were fast and efficient, with none of the hesitancy shown at Parkland or Uvalde. Good job. From Beege Wellborn at Hat Hair, A paean to toxic masculinity: Heroes run TO the danger. From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.28.23 (Evening Edition, Louder With Crowder, Nashville Police Release Bodycam Footage Of Shooting Response And It’s Absolutely Heroic,  From Fox, Who are the Nashville school shooting victims?  

For Stacy McCain, the shooting confirms his long standing belief, Nashville Shooting: Expert on Violence Agrees That Crazy People Are Dangerous. Yes, trans people are crazy, by any rational definition (don't expect a rational definition from today's medical establishment, they're too complicit), but only a small fraction of the trans community is this crazy. Kylee Griswold at Da Fed notes Nashville Tragedy Shows Why It Isn’t Compassionate To Fuel Mental Illness. TVP World, ‘Trans Day of Vengeance’ protest to proceed despite Nashville trans school shooting. Sundance at CTH, Nashville Transgender Killer Was Likely Motivated By “Resentment” Against Christians and Tucker Carlson Notes Why the Transgender Movement is Openly Targeting Christians.  "She was still living with them at 28 years of age. How was this rejection?" At Twitchy, Daily Mail exclusive: Nashville school shooter was rejected by her Christian parents. Beege Wellborn at Hat Hair wonders What to do about all this "rage" from trans types. Honestly, I don't understand all the "trans" rage. Yes, they do get "misgendered" at times, which is all their fault for trying unnaturally bend the language to their will. Languages don't work like that. Is is because we resent, and resist their attempts to impose and encourage their gender bending agenda on our youth? Damn right. Do they want free gender reassignment treatment? Too bad. Pay for it. Casey Chalk at Am Spec, Why I’m afraid of transphobia "The state coercing people into abandoning their consciences does create genuine fear." Capt. Ed at Hat Hair, "I’m tired of all the ‘-phobia’ claims. It’s an old Soviet trick dressed up for Western societies: to declare opposition to the party line as a sign of psychiatric illness, either neurosis or psychosis." Twitchy, Josselyn Berry tweets image threatening gun violence against ‘transphobes’ AFTER Nashville shooting, the Press Secretary for Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs. At Campus Reform,  Disruptive trans-activists escorted out of Cabot Phillips event by police. From Chicks on the Right, Progressive Privilege: U. of Pitt Protests Riley Gaines While Treating Transgender Dylan Mulvaney Like A Professor. Insty, WHY IS THE LEFT SUCH A CESSPIT OF VIOLENCE? Josselyn Berry, Katie Hobbs’ press secretary, tweets gun-toting image ripping ‘transphobes.’  From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.28.23 (Evening Edition, EBL, When Trannies Go Wild. Beege Wellborn, Trans types sure have a bad case of "Do as I say, not as I do and Twitchy: Trans Activist So Mad About Being Called Out For Violent Rhetoric He Tries To Cancel Sam (Then Runs). At Am Con,   Visible Transgenders "State of the Union: Leftists insist that “visibility” is a problem facing transgender people. Well, now we can see them, all right."  Dave Strom notes Wayne State University suspends professor for suggesting that conservatives be killed. At Da Caller, Professor Suspended After Writing That Killing ‘Right-Wing’ Speakers Is ‘Admirable.’  Ace, Have People Finally Had Their Fill of Trans Extremism? "Yes, says a new poll."

And of course, there's the coverage. Spencer Brown at Town Hall notes Reuters Left One Massive Detail Out of Its Tweet About the Trans School ShooterReuters@Reuters "Former Christian school student kills 3 children, 3 staff in Nashville shooting" "Rather than accurately reporting that Christians were the victims of Monday's violent attack, Reuters tried to make them the perpetrators. It could even be considered victim blaming." Acyn@Acyn "“We need to remember, the side door, I don’t know the exact facts of this moment but from what I understand a side door was unlocked. That seems to be a common pattern in many of the these shootings. A side door” Readers added context they thought people might want to know The Covenant School suspect shot and entered through a locked door. They did not enter through an unlocked side door.  Matt Margolis at PJM, MSM Apologizes for 'Misgendering' Transgender School Shooter. John Sexton at Hat Hair, NBC Out: 'Fear pervades Tennessee's trans community' "On the one hand if conservatives get angry about a mass shooting of children by a deranged trans woman they’re responsible for an incipient backlash against all trans people. On the other hand, the White House and the media are stoking anger at Republicans and no one at NBC News will write an article saying it could lead to a violent backlash against them." Althouse, I'm going to read "Fear pervades Tennessee's trans community amid focus on Nashville shooter's gender identity." "At NBC News. . . .  It sounds as though everyone is afraid of violence. Some people are afraid that random transgender people are going to become murderers, and some transgender people are afraid some of those fearful people are going to go on the offensive and randomly murder transgender people."   Andrea Widburg at Am Think thinks The reporting on the Nashville shooting reveals the incoherence of modern gender theory. Vodka Pundit at PJM on the Martyrdom of the Covenant School Shooter  

“It begins,” tweeted MRC’s Jorge Bonilla. “ABC’s Terry Moran ties the Nashville school shooting to Tennessee’s recently-passed legislation banning the hormonization and mutilation of minors.” Newsweek: “Critics of state Republicans are pointing out that while drag shows were banned, assault weapons remain legal.” “Even though what Audrey Hale did was horrible,” more than one person took to Twitter to say, and I bet you know where this is going, “She is a Martyr for the Trans Community. I’m sorry not sorry for thinking that.”
At Twitchy, David Pakman triples down with video excusing himself from victim-blaming Covenant School. Who? John Sexton again, asks Should Audrey Hale's manifesto be released? (Update). Of course it should. At CNS News, AOC Warns of What ‘Predatory Cisgender and Often Straight Men Do When Left in the Presence’ of Women and Children. What a maroon. At the Right Scoop, NYT and NBC contributor suggests Matt Walsh and Daily Wire to blame for Christian school shooting today. Vicky Taft at PJM, Stop Lying: Watch How the Nashville School Killer Case Destroys Left's Myth About Guns. From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.28.23 (Evening Edition, Dana Loesch: We’re Entering New Territory Where The Left Feels Violence Is Justified,   Alphabet Activist Groups Don’t Want The Nashville Shooter’s Manifesto Released , Don Surber, What the media doesn't say about a mass murderer and Steve Hayward at Power Line The Culture War About to Become Violent? If so, they'll soon regret it.
The left, as expected, settled on it's preferred narrative. CNS News comments  Biden Calls for Assault Weapons Ban After Nashville School Shooting--But First Jokes About Ice Cream. At LI, Mary Chastain at LI notes a Gun Control Lobbyist Hijacks Nashville Shooting Briefing, Rants About ‘Assault Weapons.’ "She also spewed out a bunch of assumptions on national TV." From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.28.23 (Morning Edition) Dana Loesch, DEVELOPING – Female Shooter Kills Six At Nashville Christian School, also, Democrats Swiftly Blame “Assault Weapons” For Nashville Tragedy. At Breitbart, Barack Obama Falsely Claims Guns Are Number One Killer of Children. Harold Hutchison at Da Caller, ‘Part Of The Danger’: Dem Rep Says GOP Colleagues Are ‘So Attached To Guns,’ There’s ‘No Hope.’ Colion Noir@MrColionNoir "Crying about an assault an weapon ban when the shooter literally left a manifesto saying that school was chosen because of the lack of armed security compared to another target is wild. The shooter killed 6 ppl w/ so called Assault weapons. The V-Tech shooter killed 36 w/ handguns. Harden the schools dummies." Cam Edwards at Bearing Arms, WaPo: Say, you know who wanted an "assault weapons" ban? Donald Trump, who was a pretty conventional NYC liberal at the time. Ace, Schools Have Banned Police from the Premises to Appease BLM. This Has Resulted in Violence. "Chasten Buttplug snarked that the GOP's only proposal for limiting gun violence was "locking the doors." Mediate ecstatic, ‘That’s Really Stupid’: Fox News Host Rips the Right’s Arguments Against Red Flag Laws

Henry Rogers at Da Caller, claims an EXCLUSIVE: Reps. Mary Miller, MTG Press FBI For Answers Over Nashville School Shooting, was the shooter a "known wolf?"

In what seems far to much for coincidence, NYPo reports the IRS visited Twitter Files journalist Matt Taibbi’s home same day as congressional testimony, nominally regarding some old tax returns for which they owe him money. Mary Chastain at LI, IRS Agents Visited Twitter Files Journalist Matt Taibbi’s House the Day of His Congressional Testimony "Coincidence? Jim Jordan demands answers from the IRS and the Treasury Department." Sundance, IRS Makes Visit to Matt Taibbi Home on Day of His Congressional Testimony. Althouse, "The IRS Makes a Strange House Call on Matt Taibbi/An agent shows up at the home of the Twitter files journalist who testified before Congress." "That's the headline for a piece labelled "Opinion" and signed by The Editorial Board of The Wall Street Journal. . . . The IRS needs to prove the timing was just a coincidence." ET, Jim Jordan Presses IRS to Explain Unannounced Visit to Matt Taibbi’s Home. Was it an armed agent? John Sexton, Is the IRS making house calls now? Hat Hair's Dave Strom concludes Yes, they are weaponizing government.

Fox reports Musk invites Twitter fact-checker community to check Biden's condemnation of 'MAGA' Republicans. "Musk said that when one criticizes a group, 'descriptions should be accurate' and not merely focusing on a 'small segment of the right or left.'" Fox2, Musk says Twitter now worth $20 billion, less than half what he paid for it. That's a lot of money on a vanity project. 

At da Wire, ‘What A Coincidence’: Massive Donations Come To Light After AOC Defends TikTok From Possible Ban, from ByteDance. Surely they can afford to buy off somebody more intelligent. 

Lincoln Brown at PJM sees that ChatGPT Makes Tasteless Joke About Jesus, Declares Mohammed Off-limits. It's not artificially intelligent, it's artificially liberal. 

Althouse not impressed, "My name is Joe Biden. I’m Dr. Jill Biden’s husband. And I eat Jeni’s ice cream — chocolate chip. I came down because I heard there was chocolate chip ice cream." ""By the way, I have a whole refrigerator full upstairs. You think I’m kidding? I’m not." Said Joe Biden, quoted in "Biden makes ice cream joke in first statement since Nashville shooting" (NY Post)." Nick Arama at Red State, Biden Has 'Hot Mic' Reveal Instructions, Gets Loose From Handlers, Makes Bizarre Gun Comments. Jazz Shaw is Revisiting the presidential age limit idea. "Over at PJ Media this morning, our colleague Stephen Kruiser published his morning newsletter with the title, “Biden Makes Best Case Yet for Presidential Age Limit.”" From Front Page, Video: China May Have Had More Deals With The Biden Family Than We Thought, "As many as ELEVEN more." Breitbart hears Ron Johnson: ‘Bank from China’ Voluntarily Provided Biden Family Records While U.S. Banks Won’t.

Jazz Shaw wonders Is Joe Biden intentionally tanking his own approval ratings? Way too clever to be true. "Payne suggests that Uncle Joe is engaged in an intentional tradeoff in anticipation of a tough general election in 2024. In other words, he could be knowingly pushing down his own approval numbers for a reason. Does that sound crazy? Of course it does. But bear with me for a moment and it might make more sense." Roger Kimball at da Spectator, cited by Hat Hair, Biden knows Kamala's usless (sic) -- but he's stuck with her. Capt. Ed, "It’s not just Biden who’s stuck with Harris. Democrats are equally stuck, even though it’s dawning on them that her catastrophic face-plant in 2019 was no fluke. They can’t push her off the ticket for 2024 if Biden runs, and they may not be able to push her aside if Biden chooses to retire. Either would create a massive rift within the identity-Marxist Democrat Party base and could cripple their congressional/Senate elections in 2024, too."

Dave Strom notes Not ALL reporters are trash, but... the Forbes one who called DeSantis racist is. Bob Spence at PJM, ‘It’s Not Going to End Nicely’: Chris Christie Thinks He Will Be the One to Take Down Donald Trump In 2024. His use-by date came and went several election cycles ago. 

Salena Zito at WaEx thinks a 'Paucity of information publicly made available' about Fetterman leaves a dangerous vacuum. He's brain-damaged. End of story.

Karen McDougal
NBC, cited at Hat Hair, BREAKING: Trumpmas won't be this week, either. Capt. Ed, "So much for the frog-march. I still wonder whether the appearance of David Pecker yesterday at the grand jury is a signal that Alvin Bragg might have shifted his focus from the payoff to Stormy Daniels to Pecker’s efforts to quash the Karen McDougal story. That has the same legal issues as the Daniels payoff, but would at least alleviate the need to use Michael Cohen as a witness." Sundance, Manhattan Grand Jury Not Expected to Vote on Trump Indictment This Week. Althouse, Blaming Michael Cohen for the Manhattan D.A.'s difficulties indicting Trump. "I'm trying to read "How Michael Cohen’s Big Mouth Could Be Derailing the Trump Prosecution" (NY Magazine)." Breitbart has a Poll: 46% of Democrats Say DA Prosecuting Trump Would Be ‘Outrageous Abuse of Power.’ Matt Margolis at PJM, Americans Know Indicting Trump Will Backfire on the Democrats. Power Line's John Hinderacker appears in Indictment Drama and 2024 J. Bob Smith at Am Think thinks Bragg is Fat, Stupid, and Diverse.

PJM's Stephen Kruiser says the American Left Grew More Violent While FBI Was Hunting Soccer Moms. At Gizmodo, The FBI Has Been Buying Bulk Internet Data from This Florida Company. "A data broker that previously sold data-pilfering tools to the U.S. military has received tens of thousands of dollars from the FBI for similar services." John Sexton, Man charged with firebombing pro-life office in Wisconsin. Althouse, "U.S. prosecutors on Tuesday charged a Wisconsin man with firebombing a conservative anti-abortion group's office last May..." "... just days after a leaked draft of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling overturning the nationwide right to abortion became public. Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury, 29, was arrested at an airport in Boston after authorities said DNA from a thrown-away bag containing a partially eaten burrito had helped them identify who caused the May 8 fire at Wisconsin Family Action's office."

Vicky Taft at PJM on Man Who Stabbed Rand Paul Senate Aide in Broad Daylight Had Just Been Released from Prison. Looks like ordinary everyday DC street crime, not a political attack.
