On Thursday, CNN’s Don Lemon said that “homegrown killers” are the problem in response to the latest mass shooting in America happening in Thousands Oaks, California.
On Wednesday, a gunman opened fire and killed twelve people in a Country music bar. Lemon listed off a few of the places where mass shootings have happened.
Lemon said, “Americans aren’t safe in a Country & Western bar. They’re not safe in synagogues. Not safe in churches, schools, supermarkets, concerts, offices, gay bars, military bases, and newsrooms. And don’t forget about malls and baseball fields. I could have a longer list here.”
Lemon then play a short clip of the shooting and called it “chilling” that nobody was screaming.
“What’s really chilling is that you don’t hear the people screaming. Just gunshots and the sound of people trying to escape,” Lemon said. “Everyday Americans now know what they should do if they’re caught in a shooting. You don’t scream. You stay down. You run as soon as you can. It’s chilling that we’ve all thought about this.”
He then slammed the White House for insisting that Americans should be afraid of the caravan when the true killers are homegrown.
“And remember just last week when the president told you it was the caravan that you should be afraid of,” he said. “The caravan he is strangely not talking about much since the election.”
Adding, “The caravan didn’t shoot up that bar in Thousand Oaks. Which caravan did the shooter belong to? None of them as far as I know. The caravan didn’t kill 11 people in that Pittsburgh Synagogue.”
“The caravan is not the problem and hasn’t been the problem. Homegrown killers are the problem. Homegrown killers are the problem. The question is when are we going to do something about it?”

‘Moscow Mitch’ blunder means Donald Trump can never be vindicated: Harvard Law’s Laurence Tribe
Constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for violating a legal principle that has existed for over 1,000 -- and his move means that President Donald Trump can never be vindicated during impeachment.
Tribe, who has taught at Harvard Law School for 50 years and argued 36 cases before the United States Supreme Court, has been advising Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats during the impeachment inquiry. He was interviewed on Friday by MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber.
Tribe said, "what it looks like is that the majority leader is going to conduct this trial as though he's a member of the defense team," Tribe said. "You know, it's an ancient principle, centuries-old -- actually over a millennium old -- that you can't be a judge on your own case and effectively, to allow Donald Trump to call the shots, violates that principle."
Democrats ‘are being more republican than Republicans’ in Judiciary Committee memo: Post columnist
A Washington Post editorial is singing the praises of the Judiciary Committee's memo about the impeachment charges President Donald Trump is facing. The memo, titled “Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment” details the fundamental principles of the Constitution the founders outlined to guarantee the country wouldn't fall at the hands of corruption.
"The memo is remarkably originalist. Regardless of what happens with the impeachment, we are getting a much-needed civics lesson," The Post explained.
Victim of Stephen Miller policy was murdered and dismembered — his body was found in 2 suitcases
Controversial White House advisor Stephen Miller has pushed President Donald Trump to enact harsh immigration policies, which are getting more attention after a grisly murder.

"During a seven-month period, the man and his family repeatedly told U.S. officials — including a San Diego immigration court judge, officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and border agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection — that they were not safe in Tijuana, the lawyer said."
