The FBI is coming under renewed scrutiny, after it was revealed that they received tips and strong clues that the shooter behind Wednesday’s school shooting in Florida planned to pull the trigger.

Americans have already been asking difficult questions about how the bureau handled the investigation of the Oct. 1 attack in Las Vegas, and the entire Department of Justice is caught up in a political scandal that implies bias and incompetence.

Now there is another question on people’s minds: Could the FBI have done more to stop the Florida incident?

According to CNN, the FBI received a tip as far back as September that a person named Nikolas Cruz might be planning a school shooting. “Ben Bennight, the 36-year-old YouTube video blogger from Mississippi, noticed in September an alarming comment on a video he’d posted,” the news network explained.

That comment declared, “I’m going to be a professional school shooter,” and was left by a person with the exact same name as the suspect behind the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. Another similar tip was allegedly received by the FBI, but the bureau seemed to do almost nothing with the information.

“It was one of at least two alleged threat reports about the suspected shooter that the FBI received, according to a law enforcement official,” CNN reported. “In both cases, the FBI did not share the information with local law enforcement, the official said.” Emphasis added.

Bennight — one of the individuals who tipped the FBI about the suspect — said that agents did follow up with him to see if he knew the person who made the threatening comment, but when he told them he didn’t have more details, investigators appear to have stopped there.

“No other information was included with that comment which would indicate a time, location or the true identity of the person who made the comment,” insisted Special Agent Robert Lasky in a news conference after Wednesday’s shooting.

“The FBI conducted database reviews, checks but was unable to further identify the person who actually made the comment,” he stated.

Think about this for a moment. The person who left the threatening comment hinting at a school shooting apparently used their full name, which matches the suspect who was arrested. Even with a full name, the FBI couldn’t figure out who this person was?

Google-owned YouTube, where the comment was left, almost certainly tracks the IP addresses and vast amounts of other data — including GPS coordinates from Android phones — about each user who has an account. They surely would have cooperated with the FBI and shared this information.

Billions of dollars are spent on the FBI and the NSA, almost every detail of online activity is tracked in some way, and with the full name of a suspect the top investigators in the world couldn’t even narrow down where one person lived? If you’re a bit skeptical of that explanation, you’re not alone.

“(W)hen the FBI said it was the same name, the first thing that went through my mind was, ‘Wow, I hope you were at least watching this guy that I alerted you to months ago,” Bennight told CNN. They were not.

The frustrating reality is that big government agencies have a pretty appalling record when it comes to detecting and stopping crimes. FBI agents knew about Omar Mateen, but could not stop the Orlando nightclub shooting.

FBI officials were warned about the Tsarnaev brothers, but moved too sluggishly to prevent the deadly Boston marathon bombing. More recently, they moved extremely slowly in stopping a pedophile from abusing underage gymnasts.

There’s more: Government investigators failed to pass on information that could have stopped the Texas church shooter from obtaining weapons. The TSA routinely fails unannounced tests and allows dangerous weapons through airport security.

There is a disturbing trend of federal agencies dropping the ball when it comes to their sworn duties: The security and safety of American lives. Meanwhile, FBI authorities seemed to have plenty of time to scheme how to derail a presidential candidate, while seeing national security as boring.

It’s time to demand answers from these officials. Stopping every incident may not be possible, but the priorities and effectiveness of America’s protectors seem to be completely backward.

Justice Clarence Thomas decried the contemporary culture of victimhood during remarks Thursday, telling an audience at the Library of Congress that constant aggrievement would exhaust the country.

Ever a touchstone for controversy on racial issues, the justice-related a story from a recent trip to Kansas, where a black college student told him she was primarily interested in school work, and less interested in the political tumult gripping college campuses.

“At some point we’re going to be fatigued with everybody being a victim,” he said.

Thomas has struck similar cords throughout his public life.

He appeared on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News program in November 2017, and suggested contemporary activists could learn would benefit from the example of his grandparents, who exhibited quiet fortitude during the heady days of white supremacy.

He made his Thursday remark in the context of a broader discussion about his childhood. Thomas was born in Georgia’s coastal lowlands among impoverished Gullah-speakers and spent his childhood working his grandfather’s farm.  He likened his upbringing to Kathryn Stockett’s 2009 novel “The Help” as most of the women in his life, including his mother, were domestics in white households.

Given the few options open to blacks in the Jim Crow south, Thomas’ family felt they had no choice but to do the best with what they had. The justice detects the hand of providence in those select opportunities open to him, like parochial education and Savannah’s Carnegie library, which served the black population.

“You always have to play the hand you’re dealt,” he said. “If you’re dealt a bad hand, you still have to play it.” 

As detailed in his 2008 memoir, he inherited these sensibilities from his grandfather. Thomas was sent to live with his grandparents after a fire ravaged his mother’s home during his childhood. By Thomas’ telling, his grandfather was the defining figure of his life. When he joined the Supreme Court in 1991, his wife commissioned a bust featuring his grandfather’s favorite quote.

“His favorite quote was ‘Old Man Can’t is dead. I helped bury him,’” Thomas said.

In a blow to the progressive movement determined to indoctrinate our youth, South Dakota could become the first state to ban public schools from teaching about gender identity.

The legislation, sponsored by Republican Sen. Phil Jensen, would apply to students in kindergarten through the seventh grade, The Associated Press reported. If Senate Bill 160 passes, South Dakota would be the first state to prohibit gender identity from being taught in its public school classrooms.

South Dakota Education Department spokeswoman Mary Stadick Smith said in an email that she was not aware of gender identity currently being taught about in South Dakota schools. Jensen said his constituents were concerned it might become an issue in the future, and are worried about teachers giving children instruction about issues that are not age-appropriate while students in the state are failing to master the basics.

According to the senator, state test scores in math and English are falling, and he thinks those subjects are what’s actually important and appropriate for schools to be teaching.

“I think we need to be focusing on reading, writing and arithmetic,” Jensen said.

Common sense says Jensen is absolutely correct. Teachers are supposed to teach children what they need to learn to be functioning members of society, not indoctrinate them with left-wing doctrine.

Jensen also helped pen House Bill 1296, which is a proposal that would reportedly “require each public school district to write and make available its policy regarding transgender students’ access to restrooms and locker rooms,” the Argus Leader reported.

Moreover, Jensen also introduced Senate Bill 202, which would require those who have a public “multi-person or unisex restroom” to hang signs informing others that someone of the opposite sex could use the restroom, the Leader reported.

“Wouldn’t you want to know if there’s someone of the opposite sex in the bathroom before you use a multiuse facility?” Jensen told reporters. “To me, it’s a common-sense bill.”

Sadly, common sense is one thing severely lacking in progressive leftists, who have completely embraced the gender identity movement with open arms, while subsequently shoving it down the throats of children.

The left will denounce the legislation, calling it a step backward. Nevertheless, public schools are in no way meant to be brain-washing chambers.

Despite how logical this seems, the bill could face an uphill battle. Even if it were to pass the Senate, South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard, a Republican, would need to sign it. Daugaard vetoed a bill in 2016 that would have required transgender students to use the restroom that correlated with their biological sexes.

“I don’t know that our standards of education are properly the subject of legislative enactments,” he explained, according to the Leader.

The Leader reported that the legislation had not yet been scheduled for committee hearings.
