Hailed as "NSA-proof" and used by journalists and whistleblowers alike to protect themselves and their sources from government retribution, Tor is painted in an entirely new light in the FOIA documents, which reveal cooperation between the software’s developers and US government agencies.

Her title belied the extent of her power within the West Wing -- after John F. Kelly was appointed White House chief of staff, she had more access to the Oval Office than almost any other staff member.

Ingraham went on to report that the deputies didn't even have body cameras at all. [Ergo, they could *never* enter, as they had no cameras and therefore could never comply with the directive.] They also lost "radio communication" during the shooting. The source further told The Ingraham Angle that they also lost radio communication during the Ft. Lauderdale airport shooting last year. And on top of that, some of the radio communications from the shooting either are "missing" or "weren't recorded." [Of course.]

Two separate sources told Fox News some of the EMS teams who requested to enter the school were told they could not. One source said it was the Broward County Sheriff's Office - which was the commanding office - that ordered some of the EMS crews not to go into the school when they requested to enter. "What's going to come out is, in the communications on several circumstances, there was the request to enter...the request was denied from Broward County," a Florida official told Fox News. [And, under normal circumstances people would be *prosecuted* for complicity in the homicides for such decisions. But, alas, alack...]

Rick Scott to suspend him. "Listen, if ifs and buts were candy and nuts, O.J. Simpson would still be in the record books," was Israel's bizarre defense Sunday after being asked on CNN if the shooting might not have happened if his department handled things differently.

Dianne Feinstein, the California Democratic Party has declined to endorse the state's own senior senator in her bid for reelection.

Neither candidate reached the 60 percent threshold required to receive the party endorsement for 2018. But the snubbing of Feinstein led de León to claim a victory for his struggling campaign.

Twitter, YouTube scrubbing all content and banning all users who question the official narrative on the Florida school shooting | 25 Feb 2018 | A few years from now, looking back on why Twitter collapsed and YouTube was abandoned by every intelligent person, we'll remember what these totalitarian tech giants did in February, 2018. Starting a few days ago, both Twitter and YouTube began scrubbing all videos and tweets that don’t follow the "official narrative" on the Florida school shooting. Anyone who questions the wisdom of the school students-turned-propagandists -- who were all probably eating Tide pods a week ago -- is immediately banned and silenced.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher Stacy Lippel was grazed by a hot bullet which left the chamber of the shooter's gun as she closed the door to her classroom after letting a number of students file into what would presumably be safety...Police maintain the suspect Nikolas Cruz arrived via an Uber ride at 2:19 p.m. and initiated his attack within two minutes.
