Saugus High School Shooting: 1 dead, several hurt after active shooter opens fire in Santa Clarita

A 16-year-old girl died and four others were hospitalized with gunshot wounds following an active shooter situation at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, officials said, and the suspect was in custody.

Authorities said that surveillance video showed a 16-year-old male student pull out a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol, shoot five students in the quad on campus before turning the gun on himself. The gunman, whose name has not been released, carried out the shooting on his birthday, law enforcement officials said during a press conference Thursday afternoon.

A 16-year-old female student was killed and four others were transported to area hospitals for their gunshot wounds.

Paramedics initially transported six patients to hospitals, including the suspect, who was listed in “grave condition” from his self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to the school around 7:30 a.m. Thursday after receiving reports of shots fired. The school is located at 21900 Centurion Way in Santa Clarita, about 35 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.

Officials at Henry Mayo Hospital in Valencia said they were treating a total of four patients from Saugus High. One female and two males were in critical condition, while another male was listed in good condition.

The female patient was pronounced dead a short time later, according to hospital officials.

A hospital spokeswoman for Providence Holy Cross Medical Center said that they received two victims from the high school. One was airlifted and the other was transported by ground. Both students were being treated for gunshot wounds, one in good condition and the other in fair condition. Their genders were not released.

Officials at Olive View Hospital also reported that a 15-year-old female student was transported by ground to their facility for injuries not associated with gunfire, she was expected to be released soon.

The school was placed on immediate lockdown and law enforcement officers were working to clear each classroom individually.

Every student at Saugus High School will be interviewed by law enforcement officers before they will be released to their parents. “We need to conduct a thorough investigation. We apologize for the wait,” LASD Undersheriff Tim

Gaza rockets fired at Israel’s south despite end of ‘Operation Black Belt’

The Gaza rocket salvo came just hours after the IDF announced the end of hostilities in the south

At least five projectiles were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel on Thursday despite a ceasefire agreement brokered by the Egyptian government going into effect earlier in the day.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said that two of the five rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system. Injuries or damage to property has not been reported.
The rocket salvo came just hours after the IDF announced an end to “Operation Black Belt,” which began on Tuesday following the targeted assassination of Islamic Jihad commander Baha Abu al-Ata inside his Gaza home.
The incident kicked off a round of fierce fighting between the IDF and the Gaza-based militant organization, with over 400 Gaza rockets being fired into Israel.
The IDF said that 32 Palestinians had been killed in the fighting, claiming the majority were members of Islamic Jihad.

NC State Silent After Fascists Spray Paint Pro-Trump Student

The son of a Republican congressman was targeted and assaulted by a violent gang of socialist and communist thugs at North Carolina State University.

Jack Bishop, a 19-year-old freshman tells the Todd Starnes Show that he was attacked by about two dozen socialists and communists primarily from the Young Democratic Socialists of America.

Bishop, who is a member of the Turning Point USA chapter, had been working with other conservative students to paint messages in the university’s expression tunnel promoting an upcoming campus event.

The event, titled “Culture Wars,” featured Charlie Kirk and Lara Trump.

Bishop said the communist students arrived dressed in all black and some were hooded. He said the began to spray paint over the advertisements and got into shoving matches with the conservative kids.

“I had the audacity to stand my ground and two members of this group got in my face and began painting all around me,” Bishop said.

“I was very disappointed to see the members of YDSA act with such audacity and lack of restraint in attacking members of the opposite side of the aisle simply for disagreeing with them,” Bishop said on my radio show. “I’ve very disheartening to see so many people so determined to censor viewpoints they disagree with.”

Bishop said there is a stigma against conservatives at NC State “and it’s indicative of the left’s attempt to censor conservative thought through intimidation and violence.”

A group called “No Hate at NC State Coalition” sent a message to the Raleigh News & Observer defending their behavior.

“We decided to go and cover it with our own message,” the statement read.

They said Bishop “attempted to prevent students from exercising their First Amendment Rights by jumping in front of several of us while we were spray painting. He intentionally tried to get sprayed to frame it as an assault.”

In other words, the socialist and communist thugs are blaming the victim.

“We cannot allow the left to continue to oppress conservative thought,” Bishop said. “It’s deeply unacceptable to commit violence in the name of political conviction, right or left, and all such behavior should be called out.”

The good news is that Jack Bishop stood his ground and exposed the communist and socialist students for what they truly are – a bunch of jack-booted thugs.

Unfortunately, the university has not done a very good job of protecting free speech on their campus. And they don’t seem to be taking what happened to Bishop seriously.

“I have not heard a word from administration,” he said. “There have been no reassurances that the people involved will be brought to justice or that conservatism is welcome on campus.”

There’s only one way to deal with leftist university officials who are too cowardly to defend free speech – pull their federal funding. And if that doesn’t work, encourage alumni and donors to stop sending cash.

Less than half of US evangelicals identify as ‘pro-life,’ new poll suggests

Only a quarter of evangelicals in the United States believe abortion should be illegal in all cases, according to a new poll showing that a majority of self-identified Christians in the U.S. identify as “pro-choice” and less than half of evangelicals identify as “pro-life.”

Save the Storks, a pro-life organization that partners with pregnancy centers to provide women with free ultrasounds, released a new survey this week that it sponsored through the research firm Magid.

The survey is based on online interviews with 1,000 adults nationwide ages 18 to 69 conducted in May to gauge Americans’ opinions and attitudes on abortion.

“There’s a disconnect in our culture right now,” said OB-GYN Dr. Karysse Trandem, a spokesperson for Save the Storks. “The majority of Americans believe that life begins at or before the heartbeat, but the majority of evangelicals and Catholics identify as pro-choice.”

While the research breaks down data by religious demographics, it should be noted that religious classification for the survey was done by self-identification. This means that evangelical respondents were self-identified and not determined by belief qualification.

The data shows that 25 percent of all respondents identify themselves as “pro-life” — a political term used typically to identify someone who opposes abortion — while 40 percent identified as “pro-choice” — a term typically used to identify someone who supports abortion rights.

Twenty-nine percent of respondents said they were “neither or a mix of both,” while 7 percent said they “don’t know.”

When broken down by religious background, 47 percent of self-identified evangelicals, 33 percent of mainline Protestants and 27 percent of Catholics identified themselves as “pro-life.”

Meanwhile, 30 percent of evangelicals, 33 percent of Catholics and 26 percent of mainline Protestants said they were “neither or a mix of both.”

Less than two out of 10 (18 percent) of evangelical respondents identified themselves as “pro-choice,” while 34 percent of Catholics and 36 percent of mainline Protestants said the same thing.

As for respondents who identified themselves as “non-religious,” only 14 percent identified as “pro-life” and 53 percent identified as “pro-choice.”

Although the plurality of respondents that participated in the survey identified as “pro-choice,” only 27 percent said they think abortion should be legal in all cases, while 14 percent of all respondents said that abortion should be illegal in all cases.

Thirty-four percent of pro-life respondents said they think abortion should be illegal in all cases, while 52 percent said it should illegal in most cases. Ten percent of pro-life respondents said abortion should be legal in most cases and 4 percent of pro-life respondents said abortion should be legal in all cases.

Of the 40 percent of respondents who said they were pro-choice, 52 percent believe that abortion should be legal in all cases, while 36 percent said it should be legal in most cases. Seven percent of pro-choice respondents said abortion should be illegal in all cases and 5 percent said it should be illegal in most cases.

For respondents who said they were “neither or a mix” of pro-choice and pro-life, 30 percent believe that abortion should be illegal in most cases while 51 percent believe that abortion should be legal in most cases.

Only 25 percent of evangelicals believe that abortion should be illegal in all cases, while 33 percent of evangelicals said that abortion should be illegal in most cases. Fifteen percent of evangelicals believe that abortion should be legal in all cases and 27 percent of evangelicals believe it should be legal in most cases.

By comparison, 16 percent of Catholics and 18 percent of mainline Protestants believe that abortion should be illegal in most cases. Thirty-one percent of mainline Protestants said they think abortion should be illegal in most cases, while 28 percent of Catholics said the same thing.

Thirty-eight percent of Catholics said abortion should be legal in most cases, while 28 percent of mainline Protestants said the same thing. Nearly one-quarter (23 percent) of mainline Protestants said abortion should be legal in most cases, while 18 percent of Catholics said the same.

Nearly one-quarter of respondents (23 percent) said that “yes,” they would consider abortion to be an option if they or their partners became pregnant. Meanwhile, 21 percent of respondents said “maybe” and 50 percent said “No.”

Twenty-percent of pro-choice respondents said they would not personally consider abortion an option while 6 percent of pro-life respondents said they would consider abortion to be an option.

Only 10 percent of evangelicals said that abortion would be an option for them personally, while 17 percent of Catholics and 15 percent of mainline Protestants said the same. Eleven percent of evangelicals said that abortion would “maybe” be an option while 72 percent of evangelicals surveyed said that abortion would not be an option.

One quarter (25 percent) of Catholics said that abortion would “maybe” be an option, while 54 percent said it would not be. As for mainline Protestant respondents, 57 percent said abortion would not be an option for them while 22 percent said abortion would “maybe” be an option.

The survey found that non-religious respondents (36 percent) were more than twice as likely than Christian respondents to say that abortion would be an option for them if they or their partners got pregnant. Still, the plurality of non-religious respondents (42 percent) says that abortion would not be an option for them personally.

Forty-two percent of evangelicals say a fetus is considered a living being at the point of conception, while 31 percent of Catholics, 34 percent of mainline Protestants and 21 percent of non-religious respondents expressed the same belief.

Thirty-eight percent of Catholics, 36 percent of evangelicals and 30 percent of mainline Protestants believe that a fetus is living at the time its heart beats.

This indicates that majorities for evangelicals, Catholics and mainline respondents believe that a fetus is living when a heartbeat can be detected or earlier in gestation.

Even among the non-religious respondents, 55 percent believe a fetus is living when the heartbeat can be detected or earlier.

“We hope this research is the beginning of an honest dialogue among Christians,” Save the Storks President Paul Isaacs said in a statement. “We are going to have to work harder to equip the next generation of Christians to have a more life-affirming ethic on this issue.”

The survey comes after a Gallup poll earlier this year found that 58 percent of respondents oppose legislation that would ban abortion once a baby’s heartbeat can be detected.

Over the past year, several states have enacted restrictions on abortion such as bills making abortion illegal once a heartbeat can be detected or as early as six weeks into gestation. Such bills have come under the scrutiny of abortion rights activists who claim such laws are too restrictive when it comes to women’s access to abortion.

An Hill-Harris X survey of 1,000 respondents published earlier this year found that 55 percent of respondents say that bills banning abortion after six weeks of pregnancy are either “too lenient” or “just right.” That same survey found that only 45 percent believed that a 6-week abortion ban legislation is “too restrictive.”

School Passes Out Flyer To Seven-Year-Olds Discussing ‘Implants, Pills, Condoms And More’

A children’s elementary school distributed a flyer to children as young as second grade that promoted a clinic hosted by a medical volunteer corps. There was one problem: one side of the flyer advertised “free birth control and pre-pregnancy services” as well as free “implants, pills, condoms and more.”

That provoked the ire of one father of a seven-year-old in the class, Richard Penkoski, who runs the online ministry Warriors for Christ. Last Thursday, according to The Christian Post, he confronted the school board in Sullivan County about the incident at Mary Hughes School in Piney Flats.
The flyer discussed the Nov. 1-3 Appalachian Fairgrounds in Gray hosted by the Remote Area Medical Volunteer Corps.

Penkoski told the school board, “What is more, exactly? And why was this given to my seven-year- old? Since when is it the school’s job to give information to my child about birth control? When did the public schools decide they can teach my child issues regarding morality and sex?”

Penkoski explained that his outrage was triggered by the flyer putting him in a position where he would have to explain sex to a child he felt was too young to start dealing with the issue. He continued, “I know liberals on this council, specifically, will say something like, ‘Well, schools teach reproduction.’ You are right. They do teach biological facts in regard to reproduction. This flyer is not talking about reproduction. It teaches birth control. I also can’t help but notice that abstinence is not on this list.”

Penkoski told the board, “The public schools think they have the right to usurp my authority as their father. This school does not have that right.”

The Kingsport Times-News reported that Sullivan County Director of Schools David Cox said the flyers were inadvertently distributed, that all the schools in the district distributed the flyers in order to enlighten disadvantaged families as to the presence of the clinic. Penkoski countered that his nine-year-old daughter did not receive one, adding, “The school can say ‘inadvertent’ all they want, but that is like accidentally giving a child with a peanut allergy a peanut.”

WBIR reported that Cox explained, “What happened on the back of the information, there was another part that was inadvertently sent and it did say free birth control.”

But Penkoski remained unconvinced, telling the Christian Post, “[The school] received two pages and what the principal did was he took the two pages and put them back-to-back to make one copy. Part of it was to save paper but you can’t miss that. It is a whole page and right at the top there are big bold letters that say ‘birth control’ and ‘pre-pregnancy’ and all that stuff.”

Dale Walker, the president of the Tennessee Pastor’s Network, also addressed the board. He asked, “Our question tonight is where is the accountability of this school? Where is the accountability of this teacher? Where is the accountability of this principal? Where are the checks and balances? What are your procedures to block inappropriate subject matter to parents? Since when does our education system pick and choose what our students are exposed to without notification to their parents first?”

Walker stated to The Christian Post:

We have a super Republican majority in Tennessee and many times people think that because we elect so-called conservative Christians that we can just live our lives and not pay any attention to what’s going on in the public space, in our schools and in our counties. Pastors better pay attention to what their children are learning in public schools. At best, we only have a couple of hours a week with children that attend our churches and then they go to secular, godless schools … and they are teaching 7-year-olds how to fornicate.

Singer Won’t Perform Unless Salvation Army Embraces LGBT Agenda

FaithWire – Pop singer Ellie Goulding is threatening to cancel her performance at the Dallas Cowboys football game on Thanksgiving Day unless the Salvation Army — the faith-based nonprofit that benefits from the competition — embraces the LGBT agenda.

Goulding, who is slated to lead the half-time show, issued the threat after some of her fans alerted her that some feel the Salvation Army has discriminated against those in the LGBT community. It’s worth noting, though, the Christian-founded charity has repeatedly said it helps all people in need, regardless of their sexual orientation, and even has a page on its website dedicated to how the organization works with the “LGBTQ community.”

The much-anticipated Thanksgiving game promotes the Cowboys’ “Red Kettle Kickoff,” which raises money and brings awareness to the Salvation Army’s beloved red kettle campaign, the charity’s annual holiday initiative. “Upon researching this, I have reached out to The Salvation Army and said that I would have no choice but to pull out unless they very quickly make a solid, committed pledge or donation to the LGBTQ community,” Goulding wrote in a comment on her Instagram page, READ MORE
