30 minutes of terror: How the Santa Fe High School shooting unfolded

 

SANTA FE — Students were just starting their day. It was first period art class.

Then it became a war zone.

For 30 minutes, authorities say Santa Fe High School was under siege by a teenage gunman armed with a shotgun and .38 caliber revolver. In the end, 10 were left dead and 13 others were wounded.

REMEMBER THEIR NAMES: What we’ve learned about the Santa Fe victims

Dimitrios Pagourtzis carried out Friday’s deadly rampage entirely within the art complex at the high school, barricading himself inside from the fusillade of police officers’ bullets that followed him there, Galveston County Judge Mark Henry said.

Law enforcement received the first calls at 7:32 a.m., according to an affidavit filed in Galveston County court Friday evening.

The art complex is made up of four rooms, each interconnected by interior hallways. Armed with a shotgun and .38 handgun, Pagourtzis walked in there Friday morning and began shooting students and teachers, said Henry, the county’s top administrator.

All of the injuries and deaths occurred within the art complex, he said. Henry said he didn’t know how many total students were in that part of the school when the shooting began.

“It’s tragic,” Henry said. “I don’t know how you make any sense of this.”

Zachary Muehe, a sophomore at the school of roughly 1,400 students, was in art class when he heard three loud booms.

Muehe told The New York Times that he recognized Pagourtzis from the school’s football team — then saw he was holding a shotgun.

“It was crazy watching him shoot and then pump. I remember seeing the shrapnel from the tables, whatever he hit. I remember seeing the shrapnel go past my face,” he told the Times.

As he ran from the classroom, he told the newspaper he looked back and saw students lying on the ground.

The first one to confront Pagourtzis was the school’s police officer John Barnes, who tried entering the art complex looking for the shooter, he said.

Minnesota: Muslims say they prefer to leave the US and live under Sharia law in Saudi Arabia or Somalia

 

 

Minnesota Streets: Filmmaker discovers many American Muslims favor sharia law over USA constitutional Law.
They say they prefer to leave the US and move to Saudi Arabia or Somalia to live under Sharia law.
Where women are considered half of a man, and non-Muslims are persecuted for being “infidels”.
Human rights organizations in the Western world are turning a blind eye to the brutal violation of human rights in the Muslim world under Sharia law.
Sharia law should be banned in the Western world.

 

 

Here’s why sharia law should be banned in the West.
Under Sharia law a woman is considered half of a man, when a woman attests to a Sharia court in countries like Saudi Arabia or Iran, she should bring at least 4 men who support her testimony.
So in most cases of rape a woman can not prove that she was raped and the court can sentence her to death for adultery, that is what happened to Suraya Menuchari who was stoned to death in Iran on false charges of adultery.

Under Shari’a laws in the Arab world, almost 90% of women underwent FGM.
The practice of FGM is banned in most Western countries but some Muslim immigrants are ignoring the law and practicing FGM even in the UK and US.

Under Sharia law girls can marry at the age of 6, just like the Prophet Muhammad from the Koran did when he married Aisha.
In Muslim countries like Yemen and Iran, girls are considered “adult” and being sold into forced marriages with grown men by their families.
There are even some cases of child marriages in Australia and Britain when immigrants brought this tradition into the West.

According to the Sharia laws An honor killing is the homicide of a member of a family, due to the perpetrators’ belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonor upon the family.
Shari’a honor killing is very common in the Muslim world, but it also happens in the West, in countries such as Britain, the United States and even the Netherlands.
According to the British media there are 12 honour killings in the UK each year.

Human rights organizations in the Western world are turning a blind eye to the brutal violation of human rights in the Muslim world under Sharia law.
Sharia law should be banned in the Western world.
Share this post if you think Sharia law should be banned in the West.

Liberals and leftists in the West use the made up term “Islamophobia” to portray anyone who criticizes Islam as a “racist”.
They ignore the fact that Islam is an ideology that has nothing to do with race.
There is an attempt in the West to impose a sharia-blasphemy law to criminalize criticism of Islam.
It started when Saudi Arabia and Muslim countries tried to pass a UN resolution to force Western states to criminalize criticism of Islam.
Even The Parliament in Canada passed “Motion M-103” to condemn the so-called “Islamophobia (Fear of Islam)” in a preparation for a blasphemy law in Canada.
According to the sharia blasphemy law anyone who criticizes Islam or the Prophet Muhammad should be killed.
Under Sharia blasphemy law in Saudi Arabia and Iran Muslims are executed if they are accused of blasphemy.
In Pakistan, the situation is even worse, radical Muslims use the blasphemy law to persecute the Christian minority.
Is this the law the liberals in the West want to adopt?
If you think Sharia blasphemy law has no place in the West, share this post!

 

 

Child marriage, forced marriage, Child brides, polygamy, FGM, Acid attacks, honor killings, beheading and stoning.
Sharia has no place in the civilized world.

Hezbollah’s name means “an army of Allah.” This Shiite terrorist organization is waging a war against Israel and threatens to kill 800,000 Israelis by bombing a chemical factory in Haifa (a historic Christian city in northern Israel).
Every year thousands of Muslims take to the streets of London, Paris, Rome and other major cities in Europe, to declare loyalty to Hezbollah (Allah’s army).
They call it “Al Quds Day March” This holiday was founded by the leader of the Islamic Revolution of Iran.
The Muslim mayor of London allows this to take place in the capital of England.
Shame on London, shame on Britain!
Al Quds Day march must be banned in the West.
The West must stop embracing Islam-based hatred of Israel.

Eastern European countries deport all Muslim immigrants and refugees for security reasons

 

 

Eastern European countries Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia called EU quotas on migrant distribution unhelpful for unacceptable.
Just look at the immigration crisis in Europe, millions of immigrants from all over Asia, Africa and the Middle East used the war in Syria to invade Europe as “refugees.”
Have you ever wondered why there are no terrorist attacks in Poland, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary?
These are the only countries that refuse to adopt the EU’s free immigration policy.
Every country has the right to defend itself and to control its borders.
Every sovereign state has the right to determine who can or can not enter and cross the borders.

 

 

The German government expects to spend around 93.6 billion euros by the end of 2020 on costs related to the refugee crisis.
The only solution to the immigration crisis is to close the borders and deport illegal immigrants back to where they came from.
Most of the immigrants who arrived in Germany are not refugees from Syria. They are Muslim immigrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East who exploited the flow of immigrants from Syria to invade Europe as “refugees.”

Multiculturalism has failed in Europe.
Most people are unaware of the consequences of the illegal mass immigration into Europe that lead to the changing face of Europe.
The British have become a minority in their Own capital city.
In Sweden the situation is even worse, Swedish majority will live long enough to see themselves becoming a minority in their own country.

More and more countries are taking steps against the immigrants’ culture.
France, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Austria have banned the burqa.
Switzerland passed an anti-mosque law which bans preaching in Arabic and mosque’s minarets.
Austrian passed a law which restricts foreign funding for Austrian mosques and Islamic communities
All these measures were taken by these countries to force immigrants to integrate into Western society.
But there are Western countries that do not even acknowledge that there is a lack of integration within the immigrant communities.
The Western world must close the borders before it is too late.

 

 

They banned Islamic immigration.
Do you support their right to defend themselves? Yes or No

Muslims In Indiana Are Ready To Riot After Massive Sign Popped Up Overnight

By on

 

 

Now Muslims in Indiana are completely outraged after a billboard was erected by local residents exposing the truth about the man who founded their religion, and they are demanding that it be immediately removed.

Not beating around the bush about the true meaning of Islam, the billboard crafted by the group “Truthophobes” hilariously mocks their prophet Mohammed as “The Perfect Man” where the gigantic billboard then lists out six truth-filled bullet points to describe him. The bullets include: “Married a 6-year-old,” “Slave owner & dealer,” “rapist,” “Beheaded 600 Jews in one day,” “13 wives, 11 at one time” and “Tortured & killed unbelievers.”

Local Muslims instantly started screaming that the creator of the billboard was a “bigot.”

“I was a little disappointed when I saw that,” Farial Khatri of the Islamic Society of North America told Fox 59. “We do support free speech, but we do realize this is also rooted in bigotry.”

Trending: Dairy Queen Just Enraged Every Democrat With New Warning Sign To Liberals That Went Up Overnight

The Muslim Alliance of Indiana plans to raise money to put a billboard up right across the street in order to try counter the  billboard’s truth-filled message, where they plan to plaster a propaganda-filled message about Islam being about “peace and kindness.”

 

 

According to Fox 59:

A billboard on the east side of Indianapolis is catching the eyes of drivers, along with the ire of local Muslim groups.

You can spot the sign from the southbound lanes of I-465 near the Washington Street exit. It claims to list the “perfect man,” but opponents say it degrades the Muslim prophet Mohammad.

“I was a little disappointed when I saw that,” said Farial Khatri of the Islamic Society of North America.

Opponents say the billboard’s bullet points are meant to disparage the Muslim faith and its primary prophet, Mohammad.

“We’ve seen them in New York and several others cities on billboards as well as other transit ads,” said Kahtri.

 

There’s no company name or identifying group on the display, but Google “Truthophobes,” a word seen at the bottom of the billboard, and you’ll find a range of websites rife with anti-Muslim messages.

“We do support free speech, but we do realize this is also rooted in bigotry,” said Kahtri.

“Peace and kindness” my ass! We’re just into the second week of Ramadan and already these “peace-loving” idiots are already out in full force, as they continue to rock the globe with increasing acts of terrorism as the promise of extra “benefits” for being a martyr over Muslims’ holy month is driving them to commit more acts of jihad for their depraved religion.

While Muslims in America continue to spew propaganda about their “peaceful” religion down our throats, three separate terror attacks since Ramadan began has already taken the lives of 149 people, with the city of Paris being targeted yet again after a psycho Muslim stormed the Notre Dame Cathedral on Tuesday with a knife. The Daily Caller reported:

The major attacks of Ramadan 2017 include twin suicide bombings in Baghdad and a massive suicide borne vehicle bomb in Afghanistan. An unconfirmed terrorist incident also occurred at a casino hotel in Manila earlier this week. These attacks occurred before a reported deadly incident on London Bridge Saturday.

The Baghdad bombings targeted both an ice cream shop and elderly pension distribution center. The ice cream shop was frequented by families with small children and killed 10. The first bombing killed 12, and nearly 100 were injured between the two blasts.

 

 

The second bombing in Afghanistan killed nearly 100 people and injured hundreds more. The massive suicide vehicle struck one of the safest areas of Kabul in Afghanistan and destroyed parts of the German embassy. Several German and U.S. citizens were killed in the attack. Afghan officials believe that Taliban elements headed by the Haqqani network are responsible for the attack.

A gunman also stormed a casino hotel resort in Manila Friday and set fire to a hotel while attempting to steal nearly $2 million in gaming chips. He engaged casino workers in a firefight and then appears to have killed himself. ISIS  claimed responsibility for the attack, which killed nearly 40 people. All casualties in the attack were caused by smoke inhalation by fire.

Muslim migrants leave Germany “We did not get free stuff. Nothing is free here”

This is what will happen if these so called “Refugee’s” are allowed into the USA!

All they want is to spread Sharia Law and take!!  They Contribute NOTHING!!!

Every month the Iraqi embassy in Berlin issued nearly 1,000 travel permits for the return of their citizens. Every week a plane leaves from Berlin’s Tegel airport to Iraq.
This proves that they are not refugees but illegal immigrants who want to invade Europe and exploit the welfare system of the European countries at the expense of the taxpayers.
Germany can not provide free housing, money and food to millions of illegal immigrants from all over the world.
Every country has the right to defend itself to close its borders and to deport illegal immigrants back to where they came from.

 

The German government expects to spend around 93.6 billion euros by the end of 2020 on costs related to the refugee crisis.
Its the impact on housing, healthcare, the rising costs of welfare, schools that are brought under horrific burdens trying to teach an influx of children who don’t speak the Language yet fill up the classrooms and competing for already scarce jobs with workers who are willing to take less money for the same job – these are the day to day burgeoning effects of mass immigration. Populism has ONLY arisen because the elites of Europe have neglected their duty towards the very people that put them in power.
Instead of serving the people they have falsely assumed mastery over them and the people will simply not stand for it.
The only solution to the immigration crisis is to close the borders and deport illegal immigrants back to where they came from.

Most of the immigrants who arrived in Germany are not refugees from Syria. They are Muslim immigrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East who exploited the flow of immigrants from Syria to invade Europe as “refugees.”

California: Hundreds students gathered to pray to Allah to honor Islam “Islam is part of America”

 

 

Happening Right Now Here in The USA!

Students in California embrace Islam and Sharia in order to show respect for Muslims.
Muslims often feel offended and claim to be victims. Many students wanted to embrace the Muslim community and so they joined a huge public prayer for Allah to make Muslim students feel welcome.
According to sharia laws:
– There is no freedom of religion or freedom of speech.
– There is no equality between people (the non-Muslim is not equal to the Muslim).
– There are no equal rights for men and women.
– There is no democracy or a separation between religion and state politics.
Sharia is incompatible with Western values.
Liberals really think that they should adopt the culture of Islam so Muslims will not be offended.
What do you think about this?

 

 

Liberals and leftists in the West use the made up term “Islamophobia” to portray anyone who criticizes Islam as a “racist”.
Radical Muslim terrorists all over the world carry out terror attacks “in the name of Allah”.
They justify their violence by quoting verses from the Quran.
Islamophobia is a made up word created by the Muslim Brotherhood specifically to silence debate.
Liberals and leftists ignore the fact that Islam is an ideology that has nothing to do with race.
Islamophobia is a neologism created to silence any possible debate about the problems Islamic extremism has got with modernity, with the intention of using the collective post-colonial “guilt” to exempt a particular set of beliefs from scrutiny, analysis and criticism.
It’s a buzzword used in an attempt to silence anyone, whenever had legit questions or criticisms about the religion.
Islam is not a race. It’s a religion.

There is an attempt in the West to impose a sharia-blasphemy law to criminalize criticism of Islam.

There’s no good alternative to building more homes in expensive cities

 

People can live elsewhere instead, but we’ll all be poorer if they do.

 

 

The sweeping land use reform bill introduced recently by California state Sen. Scott Weiner, a San Francisco Democrat, died in committee this week, bringing to an end an ambitious plan to change zoning in broad swaths of the state by allowing four- to five-story buildings near all rail transit stations and major bus corridors.

Without it or some comparably sweeping reform, California will continue to suffer from exorbitant housing costs that contribute to the highest poverty rate in the nation when judged by the Supplemental Poverty Measure. A natural reaction to this on the part of many people who are either comfortable, reasonably affluent California homeowners or else enjoying life in the South or the Midwest, is to wonder what all the fuss is about. Sure, California — and the entire Boston-to-Washington corridor — may be expensive, but if people don’t want to pay the price, there are plenty of other places in the country to live.

Even many Californians who are struggling with rent burdens may wonder why the state should bother trying a supply-side solution. After all, if you already live in California, then by definition you already have a place to live. Stricter rent control and eviction protections could be as good or even better for you than rolling the dice on the consequences of a construction boom.

But these complacent arguments miss significant downsides to forcing the most in-demand places in the country to remain underpopulated — downsides that impoverish the country and will continue to do so until we treat land use policy as a topic of broad national concern.

Wages are higher in certain places

The median fast-food cook in America earns about $10.12 per hour, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And since this isn’t a field characterized by a high degree of inequality, the mean fast-food cook’s wage is similar, $10.39 an hour. But in California, the median fast-food cook earns $11.18 — 10 percent more.

This is the critical problem with suggesting that if California doesn’t add housing, it’ll be okay because people can just move to the Atlanta area ($8.95 an hour) or Greater Boise ($8.70) or just stay in the great state of Ohio ($9.38).

These are not princely wages that fast-food workers are earning in the Bay Area. But they are more than 10 percent higher than the national average and about 25 percent higher than the Greater Atlanta average. And the differences are even bigger for higher-skilled occupations. The median registered nurse in America, for example, earns about $33 an hour, which is a good wage. But in the New York metro area, it’s $43.88, and in the San Francisco metro division, it’s a staggering $69.63.

Obviously it’s well-known that elite professionals can earn superstar wages in superstar cities. But the fact of the matter is that everyone earns higher wages in affluent cities, for basically the same reason that everyone from Mexican day laborers to Indian computer programmers can greatly increase their earnings by immigrating to the United States — places matter. The problem is that for a lot of people, it’s too expensive to make the move.

Expensive homes make it not worth it to move

This is really great news for you if you’re a nurse who bought a house in California 25 years ago. But what everyone knows about San Francisco and New York is that while the salaries may be higher there, so is the cost of living. And as Peter Ganong and Daniel Shoag showed in a paper published last year, that higher cost of living outweighs the higher salary for most people, and that didn’t used to be the case.

This chart shows how much extra money in your pocket you’d end up with, net of housing costs, of moving to a state where incomes are $1 higher than in your home state over the decades. They break it out to show the difference between skilled and unskilled households and find that from 1940 to 1990 or so, the gains of moving to a higher-income state were large regardless of your skill level — but in the 21st century, that ceased to be the case.

 

By 2010, making the move to the high-income state still makes a lot of sense for the highly skilled worker. But the fast-food cook actually may be better off taking the $8.70 in Boise over the $11.43 in Los Angeles purely because of the LA real estate market.

This is where a solution that focuses exclusively on the price of housing in California falls down. You could help out LA’s existing population of fast-food workers with price controls, but for the much larger population of Americans who might benefit from moving to California if only the prices were more reasonable, you need to simultaneously address the price of housing and the overall quantity of dwellings.

There is plenty of room for more population density in California without the entire state turning into a valley of skyscrapers — San Francisco is less dense than Queens is in New York City, while Los Angeles is about as dense as Staten Island (and considerably less dense than Providence, Rhode Island).

The state overall has about one-third the population density of Connecticut. And while of course more density would mean change, and people for understandable reasons tend to be mildly averse to seeing communities they have roots in changing, there’s good reason to believe looking at the simple wage comparisons undercounts the benefits of more density.

Denser cities would be (even more) productive

A lone person on an island by himself will struggle to get by even if he is surrounded by natural abundance. A small band would live at a subsistence level. To achieve true affluence, people need to be able to specialize and trade with one another. To an extent in the modern world, that means access to global markets — grain can be shipped to Europe and timber to Japan. But for most people, it means direct access to other people, who serve as customers and co-workers and suppliers.

Lionel Fontagné and Gianluca Santoni find that heavily populated areas offer higher labor productivity and higher pay because “denser commuting zones seem to offer a better match between employers and employees.” The more people there are around, the more kinds of businesses you can have and the more finely specialized they can be, making it more likely that any given person would be well-suited to work at someplace or other in town.

This is in some ways most obvious at the routine retail level — big cities have specialty shops and very focused restaurants rather than general stores and generic diners — but research by Jason Abel, Ishita Dey, and Todd Gabe finds that the positive impact on density on productivity is especially true in knowledge-intensive industries.

In other words, while you might fear that an influx of new people would drive down wages and undo the benefits of cheaper housing, the academic literature suggests the reverse.

Just as immigration from abroad increases domestic prosperity (a point that tends to be well appreciated in liberal coastal jurisdictions), internal migration from other parts of the United States does the same thing and for roughly the same reasons. The modern economy is made of people, and places with more people feature deeper and more competitive markets with more productivity, higher wages, and more options for both workers and consumers.

Importantly, the economic benefits of higher labor productivity are going to exist broadly and not just for people who move. Farmers in Iowa, autoworkers in Michigan, and virtually everyone else in America would be better off living in an overall richer, higher-productivity country. And to get a country like that, there’s simply no good substitute for building more places for people to live in areas that are expensive.

Muddling through leaves huge gains on the table

The political rhetoric around this topic is inherently difficult because most people are proud of where they live and somewhat skeptical of big changes. So people who live in parts of the country where land is expensive and unmet demand for new homes is severe worry about the consequences of unleashing development. And people who live in parts of the country where land is cheaper and demand for development is either low or being somewhat adequately met by sprawl think it sounds snobby to be harping about the benefits of greater density in Palo Alto and Nassau County.

But there is a reason the population of the country isn’t spread perfectly evenly across the landscape and why, in fact, no country’s population distribution looks like that.

Economic opportunities vary from place to place. Companies participating in national or global marketplaces benefit from being able to locate near existing pools of workers with relevant skills who they can hire. Workers benefit from being able to live in places where multiple employers need to compete for their labor. People who work in service-providing industries benefit from living near affluent potential clients and successful businesses. The deeper labor markets provided by density allow people to find jobs they are better at and that make them happier, while people being in proximity to one another allows them to be more innovative and productive.

There’s simply no good alternative to increasing the quantity of dwellings available in the expensive parts of expensive metropolitan areas. Whether that’s done purely by re-legalizing market-rate construction, by reviving public housing, or with a mixed strategy like inclusionary zoning, there’s no getting around the fact that the raw number of units and their location matters a lot.

When America had a primarily agricultural economy, giving ordinary people access to arable farmland was a key driver of economic opportunity. Now that we have a primarily services-based economy, giving ordinary people access to prosperous cities is a key driver. If we don’t do it, people will still find a place to live, but their life prospects will be permanently the worse for it.

Christians are the world’s most persecuted religious group, but the media ignores it in order not to harm the image of Islam.
Why doesn’t the world seem to care when Christians die?
Why is it that When Christians are murdered and persecuted en masse, no one seems to care — not even other Christians?

 

 

If you want to know what is happening to Christians in Pakistan Please watch the video down below.
The Christian human rights activist, George Naz delivers a message to the Muslims of Pakistan; “You burn my Bible every day. You destroy my Cross every day. You burn my Christian brothers and sisters alive on daily basis. Let´s not forget Gojra´s incident. The Christian residence premises in Joseph Colony Lahore were burnt. Church in Peshawar was attacked. Shanti Nagar´s incident as well. How many more such incidents shall we talk about? You are being so cruel with us by burning our Bibles and Cross.
A Christian couple was burnt alive in Kot Radha Kishan. 3 lives were snatched as the woman was pregnant. It is often said that Christians in Pakistan are safe and face no problems at all. This is the real condition of Christians. And this is what our Muslim brothers are doing to us. Until when we shall be oppressed? For God´s sake please do something for us.”

 

 

 

 

The brutal persecution of non-Muslim minorities throughout the Middle East, Asia and Africa has become genocide.
But the Canadian government cares more about the image of Islam.
