Stunning twist in story of 7th grader suspended for playing with airsoft gun at home

On Tuesday, Glenn talked about a ridiculous story out of Virginia Beach, Virginia involving 12-year-old Khalid Caraballo and two of his friends, who were suspended from school after playing with airsoft guns at Caraballo’s house. The story got a whole lot more stunning yesterday, when a disciplinary committee in the district unanimously voted to hand down long-term suspensions to the students.

TheBlaze reports:

Khalid Caraballo, Aidan Clark and a third student will reportedly be suspended until June, or the entire school year. However, the committee voted to hold the suspension in “abeyance” to allow the students to attend an alternative education program during the suspension.

A hearing will be held on January 27 to determine if the students will be permitted to return to school sooner than that.

“Here's the deal: The school board last night voted 100%, not one dissension on the school board, not one. Not one dissenting vote. Not one,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This is Virginia Beach, Virginia. Now, I don't know about you, Virginia Beach, but I'd get into my car and I would go to the next school board meeting and I would bring everybody in my church and everybody in my 9/12 group and everybody I know and say enough is enough. I mean it really is time to decide. It's going to get worse and worse and worse. And they are teaching you a lesson right now. They're teaching you, be quiet.”

“You just can't tolerate that,” Pat added.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Virginia Beach Public School Board Chairman Daniel Edwards defended the decision of the committee and said witnesses claim the boys were shooting other students in the street. Larkspur Middle School principal Matthew Delaney says there was a student only 10 feet from the bus stop fleeing from “from the shots being fired, but was still hit.”

According to TheBlaze, Delaney’s statement is suspect given that the Caraballos’ property, where the boys were playing is 70 yards from the bus stop and a 911 call supports Khalid’s claim that he never left his property.

“I think it was National Review had a good column today on this story and kind of won me over a little bit in that, like, everyone's talking about this as a gun thing,” Stu said. “It's really more of that Melissa Harris‑Perry ‘Your children don't belong to you’ thing. Sure, we are all freaking out about the Second Amendment, but you go beyond that. This is people in their own yards.”

"Excuse me. Get the hell out of my yard. I mean, look at what they're doing with Common Core. You think you have control of your kids? You don't even have a right to know what they're teaching. You don't even have a right to question what they're teaching. You don't have a right to stand up and say, ‘They're going to teach your kids and they are going to teach what they believe.’ That's just the way it is. This is wrong, guys,” Glenn said. “And if you let it go through, you get what you deserve. Don't let them continue to go down this path. Everybody needs to show up at that school board… You need 1,000 people to march in and just say, ‘We demand justice’ because this is none of your business. This is insane. And everybody here knows it. All of the school board? Not one dissension? Not one? It's crazy. But that's what you get when you have a press that is so compliant.”

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

Population: 923,484

12. North Dakota

Population: 780,588

13. Alaska

Population: 732,984

14. Washington DC

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
