President Trump on mass shootings

President Trump anuncia medidas para combatir los hechos violentos de asesinatos masivos.

The President: Good morning.

My fellow Americans, this morning, our nation is overcome with shock, horror, and sorrow.

This weekend, more than 80 people were killed or wounded in two evil attacks.

On Saturday morning, in El Paso, Texas, a wicked man went to a Walmart store, where families were shopping with their loved ones.

He shot and murdered 20 people, and injured 26 others, including precious little children.

Then, in the early hours of Sunday morning in Dayton, Ohio, another twisted monster opened fire on a crowded downtown street.

He murdered 9 people, including his own sister, and injured 27 others.

The First Lady and I join all Americans in praying and grieving for the victims, their families, and the survivors.

We will stand by their side forever.

We will never forget.

These barbaric slaughters are an assault upon our communities, an attack upon our nation, and a

crime against all of humanity.

We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil, the cruelty, the hatred, the malice, the bloodshed, and the terror.

Our hearts are shattered for every family whose parents, children, husbands, and wives were ripped from their arms and their lives.

America weeps for the fallen.

We are a loving nation, and our children are entitled to grow up in a just, peaceful, and loving society.

Together, we lock arms to shoulder the grief, we ask God in Heaven to ease the anguish of those who suffer, and we vow to act with urgent resolve.

I want to thank the many law enforcement personnel who responded to these atrocities with the extraordinary grace and courage of American heroes.

I have spoken with Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, as well as Mayor Dee Margo of El Paso, Texas, and Mayor Nan Whaley of Dayton, Ohio, to express our profound sadness and unfailing support.

Today, we also send the condolences of our nation to President Obrador of Mexico, and all the people of Mexico, for the loss of their citizens in the El Paso shooting.

Terrible, terrible thing.

I have also been in close contact with Attorney General Barr and FBI Director Wray. Federal authorities are on the ground, and I have directed them to provide any and all assistance required — whatever is needed.

The shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto online consumed by racist hate.

In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy.

These sinister ideologies must be defeated.

Hate has no place in America.

Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart, and devours the soul.

We have asked the FBI to identify all further resources they need to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism — whatever they need.

We must recognize that the Internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize disturbed minds

and perform demented acts.

We must shine light on the dark recesses of the Internet, and stop mass murders before they start.

The Internet, likewise, is used for human trafficking, illegal drug distribution, and so many other heinous crimes.

The perils of the Internet and social media cannot be ignored, and they will not be ignored.

In the two decades since Columbine(April 22, 1999), our nation has watched with rising horror and dread as one mass shooting has followed another — over and over again, decade after decade.

We cannot allow ourselves to feel powerless.

We can and will stop this evil contagion.

In that task, we must honor the sacred memory of those we have lost by acting as one people.

Open wounds cannot heal if we are divided.

We must seek real, bipartisan solutions.

We have to do that in a bipartisan manner.

That will truly make America safer and better for all.

First, we must do a better job of identifying and acting on early warning signs.

I am directing the Department of Justice to work in partisan — partnership with local, state, and federal agencies, as well as social media companies, to develop tools that can detect mass shooters before they strike.

As an example, the monster in the Parkland high school in Florida had many red flags against him, and yet nobody took decisive action.

Nobody did anything.

Why not?

Second, we must stop the glorification of violence in our society.

This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace.

It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence.

We must stop or substantially reduce this, and it has to begin immediately.

Cultural change is hard, but each of us can choose to build a culture that celebrates the inherent worth and dignity of every human life.

That’s what we have to do.

Third, we must reform our mental health laws to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence and make sure those people not only get treatment, but, when necessary, involuntary confinement.

Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun.

Fourth, we must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms, and that, if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process.

That is why I have called for red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders.

Today, I am also directing the Department of Justice to propose legislation ensuring that those who commit hate crimes and mass murders face the death penalty, and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively, and without years of needless delay.

These are just a few of the areas of cooperation that we can pursue.

I am open and ready to listen and discuss all ideas that will actually work and make a very big difference.

Republicans and Democrats have proven that we can join together in a bipartisan fashion to address this plague.

Last year, we enacted the STOP School Violence and Fix NICS Acts into law, providing grants to improve school safety and strengthening critical background checks for firearm purchases.

At my direction, the Department of Justice banned bump stocks.

Last year, we prosecuted a record number of firearms offenses.

But there is so much more that we have to do.

Now is the time to set destructive partisanship aside — so destructive — and find the courage to answer hatred with unity, devotion, and love.

Our future is in our control.

America will rise to the challenge.

We will always have, and we always will win.

The choice is ours and ours alone.

It is not up to mentally ill monsters; it is up to us.

If we are able to pass great legislation after all of these years, we will ensure that those who were attacked will not have died in vain.

May God bless the memory of those who perished.

May God protect them.

May God protect all of those from Texas to Ohio.

May God bless the victims and their families.

May God bless America.

Thank you very much.

Thank you.

PR NEWSWIRE August 6, 2019; 11:00 am UTC

EDMONTON, Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Aurora Cannabis Inc. (“Aurora” or the “Company”) (NYSE | TSX: ACB), the Canadian company defining the future of cannabis worldwide, today provided a corporate update on selected financial metrics for the fourth quarter of the Company’s Fiscal 2019 (“Q4 2019”) period ended June 30, 2019. This reiteration of guidance and clarification of operations is intended to update our investors as Aurora continues to demonstrate leadership in transparency and disclosure as the industry navigates throughs periods of volatility. Full results will be published prior to September 15, 2019, details for which will be provided in advance.

Based on a preliminary (unaudited) review, the Company anticipates net revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 of between $100 million and $107 million (net of excise taxes), compared to $19.1 millionin the period ended June 30, 2018, and compared to $65.1 million for the previous quarter ended March 31, 2019.  Fiscal Q4 2019 net cannabis revenue is expected to be between $90 million and $95 million, with growth anticipated across all key business segments including medical, both Canadian and international, and consumer markets.  The Company anticipates total net revenues for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019 to be between $249 million  $256 million. The Company expects to report that production available for sale for Q4 2019 will be at the upper end of the range between 25,000 kg and 30,000 kg, ahead of previous guidance of 25,000 kgs.

These production and revenue estimates reflect strong delivery against corporate Key Performance Indicators (“KPIs”), the financial metrics the Company uses to evaluate the business on a day-to-day basis. The Company also expects to report sequential quarterly improvements in these KPIs, in particular: gross margins, kilograms of cannabis sold and cash costs per gram produced. The Company continues to track toward positive adjusted EBITDA, and in particular adjusted EBITDA from cannabis operations.

From the beginning, the Company’s core philosophy of “purpose-built facilities” has focused on high quality  cultivation of medical grade cannabis globally.  This approach is validated by material growth in production and revenue and continued improvement in the above KPIs. Aurora’s management team and Board of Directors continue to drive a culture rooted in quality, transparency, and regulatory compliance. Aurora has grown both organically and through acquisitions of companies with shared visions, and today this culture is ingrained in Aurora’s over 2,500 employees across the globe.

“Our Q4 2019 guidance highlights Aurora’s continued leadership,” said Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora. “We set out to be best-in-class cultivators, and through carefully evaluated acquisitions, that vision continues to drive exceptional results today. We are the leader in cultivation capacity, production available for sale and revenues for cannabis in the Canadian medical and consumer markets. We continue to lead the build out of European and other international medical cannabis markets. Our success to date comes from a focus on quality, regulatory compliance, appropriate Board of Directors oversight, and delivering a profitable, low risk and sustainable business for our shareholders.”

The preliminary estimated financial results and other data for the three months ended June 30, 2019 set forth above are subject to the completion of the Company’s financial closing procedures. This data has been prepared by, and is the responsibility of, the Company’s management. Aurora’s independent registered public accounting firm, KPMG LLP, is in the process of performing year-end audit procedures with respect to the accompanying preliminary financial results and other data, and accordingly does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect thereto. The Company currently expects that its final results of operations and other data will be consistent with the estimates set forth above, but such estimates are preliminary and Aurora’s actual results of operations and other data could differ materially from these estimates due to the completion of its fiscal year-end audit procedures, final adjustments, and other developments that may arise between now and the time such annual audited consolidated financial statements for the twelve months ended June 30, 2019are released.

The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) excluding interest income (expense), accretion, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, changes in fair value of inventory sold, changes in fair value of biological assets, share-based compensation, changes in fair value of financial instruments, gains and losses on deemed disposal, and non-cash impairment of equity investments, goodwill and intangible assets. Adjusted EBITDA from cannabis operations is defined as adjusted EBITDA for the Company’s business units engaged in the production and sale of cannabis and legal derivatives thereof and excludes non-cannabis-related business units or operations.

Robert Muller…the Patriot!

On Jul 21, 2019, James Come@Comey twited as follows:
“This week, an Americn patriot takes the center stage: he doesn’t want attention; has principles and follows them; and allways tells the truth. What an opportunity for young people to be inspired. What a great opportunity for both parties in Congress to follow his example.”

Mueller Hearing – Rep. Devin Nunes Opening Statement (C-SPAN)

Rep. John Ratcliffe(R-TX) to Mueller: You Didn’t Follow Special Counsel Rules, You Wrote About Decisions That Weren’t Reached…Muller is grilled!

Mr. Mullers Five Minutes

Rep. Goetz Five Minutes

Mi conclusión después de Muller

R Sánchez R | Julio 24, 2019 | Edinburg, Tx

Realmente yo pensé que Robert Muller nos daría una cátedra de profesionalismo en la procuración de justicia. Realmente supuse que escucharlo sería una experiencia. Independientemente de lo que dijo, yo me equivoque, no solo no nos enseno nada, el fue una decepción total.

La impresión que nos queda es:

  • El súper héroe(según J Comey) no llego preparado.
  • Estoy seguro que el 90% de los que lo vieron concluyen que no escribió ni ha leído el “reporte Muller”.
  • Muller ya no quiere saber nada del asunto.
  • Ademas, físicamente ya esta anciano, no puede. Pero bueno la lana que le dieron era muy buena.

Resulta que el sicario, Andrew Weissman, es el que realmente llevo a cabo la investigación y preparo todo el reporte.

Yo me siento muy contento de volver a ver que se les devuelve a los demócratas su mala intención.

Mi predicción, para las elecciones 2020, es de que si los demócratas cooperaran con el esfuerzo de Trump para sacar adelante todas las broncas que hay, ganarían mas posiciones en 2020 de las que finalmente van a ganar.

Ya veremos, tratare de incluir marco de referencia para medir si tengo razón.

Taco Tuesday

R Sánchez R | Julio 23, 2019

3:30 Pm
Amor, comiste? No, no he comido, si quieres te preparo algo rápido…no ya es tarde, mejor vamos a cenar temprano. ¡Ok ya está!

6:30 pm
Estoy lista, a la hora que quieras nos vamos…ok déjame me cambio. Me di un regaderazo rápido y me arreglé para salir a cenar. Como siempre un trago antes de salir de la casa y nos vamos.

7:30 pm
Listo, vámonos…
…ya en la camioneta…a donde vamos amor? Donde quieras, ahora escoge tu, no has comido. Ok pues El Infiernito o el Hayashi si quieres. Bueno si tienes antojo, vamos al Hayashi.

8:00 pm
Ya en el Hayashi nos dice la señorita(Hostess) que nos recibe, en cinco minutos le tengo su mesa. Me acerco al bar y el cantinero me ofrece un “Cucumber Martini” para mi esposa. Le gusta a su esposa me pregunta, no se, le conteste, déjame preguntarle. El cantinero, que no me acuerdo de su nombre, pero lo conozco desde que empezamos a venir a este restaurant, me dice llévaselo y si le gusta, yo se lo regalo.

Si le gusto, le confirmo a mi amigo que si le gusto, excelente me contesta y me reitera que es de su parte. Le di las gracias y le pedi un “JW Black on the rocks” para
mi. Una porción generosa en mi “old fashion” y yo feliz. En ese momento se acerca Ray, nuestro mesero favorito de este lugar y me dice que ya están preparando la mesa y que el nos va a atender. Me despreocupo pues el ya nos conoce y sabe quienes son los cocineros que no nos gustan.

8:05 pm
Se acerca la “hostess” y nos indica que ya esta lista la mesa, nos acompaña
y pocos minutos después de sentarnos llega Ray y nos toma la orden.

Pedimos lo acostumbrado y en pocos minutos nos trajeron el rollo que habíamos ordenado al llegar. Después de estar esperando unos minutos, nos empezamos a preguntar, ¿quién nos ira a tocar de cocinero? De repente aparece Ruben y se dirige a nuestra mesa pero rápidamente se acomoda en la de al lado. ¡Ni hablar no nos toco!

Seguimos esperando y a los pocos minutos me dice Tere, “Sanchitoz, nos va a tocar el Pokemon” a lo que le conteste, no lo creo, Ray ya sabe y la “hostess” también. Tere me pregunta, y si nos toca que vas a a hacer? …nos levantamos conteste.

Minutos después, “pokemon” se perfila hacia nuestra mesa y efectivamente, era nuestro cocinero.

Cuando Tere vio que este payaso venía a nuestra mesa, apresuradamente se levanto y me dijo, me voy al baño, ¡no quiero ver!

Bueno, pokemon se dirigió a mi inmediatamente para verificar la orden…”cancela la orden y dame la cuenta” fue mi respuesta. Aunque ya se lo esperaba, si se sorprendió y no supo exactamente que hacer y continuo con los otros comensales.

Me levante de la mesa y fui con el gerente a avisarle que necesitaba pagar mi cuenta pero la comida no la queríamos.

Venimos a cenar, no a ver un payaso que lo que menos hace es cocinar. Se disculpo y nos dijo que no se debía nada.

Por cierto Ray se escondió.

8:39 pm

Tere me marca desde el baño y me pregunta: Que hiciste?…ya describí anteriormente lo que había hecho.

Ordenamos lo acostumbrado en “Taco Tuesday”!

Y cenamos muy rico!

Por cierto nos enteramos
que El Infiernito lo vendieron a La Herradura…

This Hispanic voter supports Trump, but doesn’t talk about it

Hey! Check out this article I just read on the new Rush Limbaugh App..
View in

July 16, 2019

Caller to Rush Limbaugh talk radio show.

RUSH: This is James, Pueblo, Colorado. Glad you waited, sir. You’re next on the EIB Network. Hi.

CALLER: Rush, first thing I want to say, I’m a 38-year-old union worker, Hispanic, and I’m conservative, and I vote Republican. And there’s a lot of people out here that have the same views as I. We kind of fly under the radar. And it’s kind of insulting to hear some of the liberal community wanting people like us to be victimized. And we don’t want that. We want to be let to do what we want, let us work, let us take care of our families. So it’s insulting to people like me when I hear, for example, the press conference last night, that was a big insult to people like me.

RUSH: You mean The Squad’s press conference?

CALLER: Yes. Yes.

RUSH: It was an insult to you because of why? They were claiming to speak for you when they don’t?

CALLER: Well, they want people, brown people, black people, like me, I’d be considered a brown person to them —

RUSH: Oh, that. The Pressley babe. Yeah. Brown people need to speak up for brown people, black people for black people, Muslims for Muslims, and — she said it — queer for queer. LGBTQ for LGBTQ, the trannies. And so you felt offended being in included in that as though you’re mindless?

CALLER: Exactly. I’m smart enough to know, to see through the nonsense, and a lot of people are. We just fly under the radar. There are a lot of people that are Trump supporters here in southern Colorado that just kind of mind their own business because, you know, life’s not that bad, life is good, ’cause we make it that way. We don’t need someone —

RUSH: Wait a minute. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. (crosstalk)

CALLER: — that I’m a victim.

RUSH: This is really key. This is really important. People like you — you said you’re Hispanic — people like you, you support Trump, but you keep your mouth shut and you mind your own business. I take it from that — and correct me if I’m wrong — that you’re trying to escape being a target of these people. You don’t want them targeting you, coming after you, focusing on you, your family or whatever. So you’re out there quietly going, “Yeah, yeah, yeah,” when Trump does this stuff, but you’ll call here under the cloak of anonymity because you don’t want to be noticed otherwise. Right?

CALLER: Exactly. And any conversation that would come to it would be honestly a waste of my time, to get into a conversation with someone else.

RUSH: With who? One of these people?

CALLER: Yeah, anybody that opposes what I think, it’s a waste of my time because I have better things to do than argue a mindless point.

RUSH: And so you don’t even think you could succeed in persuading them that they’re wrong, you think it’d be a waste of time for you to even entertain that?

CALLER: Yeah. Well, there’s a few conversations I’ve had, there is no persuading them, it becomes a waste of my time.

RUSH: You know why? Because you’re dealing with robots. You’re dealing with people that are not thinking. They have been propagandized. They’re incapable of thinking. It’s the whole point. They have been indoctrinated, propagandized. They can’t explain why they believe what they believe. All they can do is tell you that you’re a pig or you’re a racist or worse.
