Why reach out to a fraud and usurper going by the name of barack hussein obama when Florida Governor can reach out to a LEGALl US President coming into office January 20, 2017 ? 

This is by FAR the best bitch slap of Obama in the last 8 years

obiomination is worthless at this point, (like he wasn't before) and the Fl. Gov. knows this. He went to the person that actually could help!

Gun Free zones are easy targets

I'm surprised we haven't heard from obama or liberal idiots claiming this is Trump's fault too...

Obama probably will not reach out to Gov. Scott

I WOULDN'T ALLOW THAT TRAITOROUS, AMERICA HATING MUSLIM: HUSSEIN O'BOWELMOVEMENT  AKA:  BARRY SOETORO/SOBARKHA (OR WHATEVER THE HELL HIS REAL NAME IS ???).....TO CLEAN MY TOILET !!!!!!!!

Why reach out to an empty chair. This is Obama coup de gras, he's done nothing but cheer on these murders. Except try to take our weapons away. Scott is a great governor and knows where to reach out to another real leader to actually solve the problem. I have a home near that airport and fly into there often. My heart and prayers go out to the victims family's. Help is on the way.

Something about this article caught my attention.  Make a special note of "Weird Thing #3"

3 Weird Things About the Ft. Lauderdale Airport Shooting

Now, I’m not saying this was a set-up, a hoax, or some kind of creepy Manchurian candidate thing, but there is some definite weirdness.

Don your tinfoil and walk through these three points with me. (Also, if you like to delve into the maybes like this, you can get daily news updates, commentary, and survival tips here.)

Weird Thing #1 – Santiago turned himself into the FBI in November, saying he was a victim of government mind control

Santiago, a US veteran, was under psychiatric care because he was “hearing voices.”  Last November, he tried to turn himself into the FBI in Anchorage, Alaska, where he lived.

“In November 2016, Esteban Santiago walked into the Anchorage FBI Field Office to report that his mind was being controlled by a U.S. intelligence agency,” a senior federal law enforcement official said.

“During the interview, Santiago appeared agitated and incoherent, and made disjointed statements.  Although Santiago stated that he did not wish to harm anyone, as a result of his erratic behavior, interviewing agents contacted local authorities who took custody of Santiago and transported him to a local medical facility for evaluation.  The FBI closed its assessment of Santiago after conducting database reviews, interagency checks, and interviews of his family members,” the official added. (source)

Gosh, if that doesn’t sound like something right out of the Conspiracy Theorist’s Official Handbook.

Weird Thing #2 – at least one bystander reported multiple shooters.

Keep in mind that eyewitnesses to high-stress events are notoriously unreliable. However, it’s interesting to note that one man who was allegedly present during the attack reported that Santiago was not acting alone.

Moreover, an eyewitness to the actual event maintains that after they caught the first guy “there had to be three sleepers [three other shooters].”

“[…] we could see inside literally where the windows — you could see the fire coming from the barrels. There was like at least three people in there still shooting. Like it was like a high-powered rifle, like an AR or something […]. They was non-stop shooting. Like they just started hitting different people inside the crowd. We had to leave. We had to get on the roof.” (source)

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said that despite initial reports, there were not multiple shooters. (source) I was unable to find any of the previous reports, just the quote above and the reference from the sheriff.

Weird Thing #3 – this incident was conveniently timed right before discussion on a pro-gun bill that would allow firearms in airports.

And if all of this is not strange enough, there’s one more thing. And this is the part that sent up a red flag for me.

Did you know that there is current legislation on the table in the state of Florida to allow guns in airport terminals? The state legislature was due to meet next week to discuss the bill.

The Tallahassee Democrat reported Tuesday that Republican State Senator Greg Steube had introduced SB 140 to the state senate Judiciary Committee, to be considered sometime next week. The bill would repeal existing gun bans on college campuses, in airport terminals, and in government meetings.

“If you want to kill as many people as possible before the cops arrive then you are likely to go to a place where law-abiding citizens can’t carry,” argued Steube, the committee chairman.  “That’s what we’ve seen, time and time again and why I think we shouldn’t have them.” (source)

I hate to be one of those people who always says that a horrible incident was a set-up.

In fact, I usually say something along the lines of, “If you find yourself in this situation, it will not matter at that moment who is behind it.” (And when I say that, I also like to point out that you should know what to do if you ever find yourself caught in the middle of a shooting or terror attack. Go here to learn more.)

BUT.

This whole thing really is kind of weird, isn’t it?

The take-home point is to think for yourself. Don’t just accept the story that is presented by the media as the truth. Think critically. Ask questions.

Sadam Hussein, Barack Husein, Osama Bin Laden, Obama Bin Lyin, seems pretty clear to me, reaching out to the muslim in the White House, is like reaching out to isis !

Perhaps Obama is the leader of ISIS/ISIL?                                                                                       As Barry Soetoro, Barack Obama received a Fulbright Scholarship to Occidental College, CA.     As Barry Soetoro, Barack Obama has his ID picture with the background the British Crown   and Foreign Student under his picture!!

His records are still sealed!!

He's certainly  NOT an American!!

Trump needs to have the FBI unseal Obama's personal records and they need to take Sheriff Joe Arpaio's criminal investigation report... demonstrating that Obama's public release of his Hawaiian Birth records... were forged. 

America needs to pursue and put to rest the serious questions surrounding Obama's US Citizenship... the people deserve to know.  If it turns out he is a fraud... a full investigation into those responsible needs to occur and where the law was violated they need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  America must not permit a fraud to claim the office of president.. even if after the fact.

Trump National Diversity Coalition's Bruce LeVell: President’s Support Among Blacks, Hispanics Will ‘More Than Double’ In 2020

Bruce LeVell, the National Diversity Coalition for Trump executive director, said on Sunday evening he predicts President Donald Trump will win even higher levels of support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020 than he did in 2016.

“Pastor Darrell Scott is the CEO, we started this back in 2015,” LeVell said on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel on Sunday evening about the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. “It is the largest diversity coalition platform in history for a Republican candidate, not to mention a sitting president, and there are millions of guests that sign on and sign up that are part of this. If you look on the website, you see African Americans for Trump, Haitian Americans for Trump, Korean Americans for Trump, Chinese Americans for Trump, Hispanic Americans for Trump–all very large. They all stand in one agreement that they believe in this great president and that he is here for all and wants everyone to be successful. It’s pretty flattering, honestly, to be a part of this. It just totally debunks everything that they try to make him out to be–a racist, which he’s not. The numbers prove that he’s not. You can see where he’s rising in terms of the Hispanic vote, and the African American vote. It’s just really going to be mind-boggling on the next go-around. I guarantee it. It’s going to more than double because people are happy; they’re working.”

LeVell, when asked for his rationale on why he thinks Trump’s support in 2020 among blacks and Hispanics will more than double, attributed it to the results President Trump has gotten for those communities.

“Sometimes you have to speak things into existence,” LeVell said. “The president said, ‘What do you have to lose?’ That challenge, especially in the underserved communities, well, yeah, what do we have to lose? We tried it this way for 30 or 40 years. Some of these cities and municipalities were under Democrat rule, as you might say, for many years, and then you say, ‘You know what? Let’s make the ask.’ You know, the president made the ask. Sometimes, you just have to ask, ‘Hey, what do you got to lose? Try this.’ Let’s try one of the biggest, strongest bills that he’s signed, that was so beneficial, called the Opportunity Zones. This bill right here alone is bringing a lifeline to some of these underserved communities and is projected to bring in over hundreds of billions of dollars in these underserved communities, which are predominantly African American communities. For example, in Atlanta, there are minority business contractors teaming up with other business contractors building a hotel in an Opportunity Zone. This community has just been blighted for God knows how long. These are the things that people are starting to see–the light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a businessman that understands what I call a balance sheet, a P & L sheet of profit and loss. The president wants to see the country profitable, not losses. So that’s what he does. He says, ‘Okay, where can we improve? What can we do?’”

He continued, “Like I said earlier, I think the Opportunity Zones is a sleeper; it has so many moving parts to it where you can sell a piece of property for $2 million and instead of paying that very high capital gains [tax] you can identify those funds over the zone, and then, you can build another little hotel or a shopping center for economic empowerment for that community. So there’s so many initiatives out there for people of color, like myself, who see opportunities. You know, how about this? You live in a black community under the Trump administration, you walk down the street and say, ‘Wow, 98 percent who live in the community are African American,’ and you say, ‘Why don’t you build that grocery store? Why don’t you build that gas station?’ Wow, you’re right. I can. The programs that are out there, like in the Small Business Administration, you get as little as five or ten percent down, and they can maturize it to 30 years, and if you’re a veteran, they waive the fees. There are so many tools out there, and you saw the president when he adjusted Dodd-Frank last year; that was a terrible, terrible deal they did in 2009 and 2010 that literally almost just choked and killed the business community because of the Dodd-Frank, going in there and regulating these small community banks, which were life support for these small communities especially in the African American community, where he readjusted that last year and made it work. These are the things this president understands that as a businessman he can bring his lifelong talents to the White House and can help America. The biggest thing about this is, remember, the president is not beholden to any special interest group; this is a very key part of this conversation right here because he can go in there and govern without having to worry about paying back favors.”

According to NBC News analysis in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, Trump actually outperformed now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)–then the former governor of Massachusetts–in the 2012 election when it came to both the black and Hispanic communities.

“Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday, compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012,” NBC News wrote. “With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.”

If Trump is able to double support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020, as LeVell predicts he will, no Democrat will stand even close to a chance of defeating him; the margins they would need for victories in a number of states would be significantly eroded. Perhaps that is why the Democrats are now attempting to paint Trump as a racist amid his battle with the so-called “Squad” of socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The new faces of the Democrat Party, the “Squad,” in other words, is worried they may lose the election in 2020 if LeVell and other Trump backers are right. But the scurrilous accusations of racism for quick political gains, which have also been leveled at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks, LeVell warns, may undermine the ability to stand up to actual racism where it exists.

“At first, it was kind of bizarre,” LeVell, who knows Trump well and has known him prior to his run for president, said of the false racism accusations. “Now, it’s just plainly un-American. It’s so anti-patriotic. You know, the interesting thing about it for me as a black conservative or Republican–I like to define myself as a Frederick Douglass Republican–most of the name-calling comes from people who actually look like me, 90 percent of it. It’s bizarre, and it’s because our thinking process is not lining up with theirs. It’s the only playbook they have, like I said earlier, which is, ‘Let’s just use the race card.’

LeVell went on to say, “Getting back to the president, I’ve been around him–I was just with him at the rally–in very intimate settings, behind the scenes at the rally, and you’re right: I’ve traveled with him, been on the plane with him. I’ve been in private meetings with him. I’ve talked with him, and you know–let me tell you something: I’m 55 years old, I’ve lived my whole life in the South, and I’m world-traveled. Let me tell you: I know racism when I see it. This man is nowhere near being a racist. It’s so sad because it does such a disservice to this great nation that they would throw that name and throw those words around. I mean, you have people calling Biden racist. They’re calling Pelosi racist. They’re calling the dog-catcher racist because he impounded the black dog instead of the white dog. Come on. What’s next? You know, it’s kind of sad because it’s pretty much watered down things that are legitimate, to where people are just going to get so numb with it, and people are just being like, ‘Wow, are you serious?’”
