A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    No matter how popular Sanders became as president he would be unable to enact much wealth redistribution. Perhaps tynin realizes that tall tales of rampant socialism and any tangible wealth redistribution are just right-wing scare tactics. The reality of a Sander's presidency would just be a relatively honest man trying to level the playing field and prevent any further siphoning of wealth from the working and middle classes to the rich by ending Corporate welfare and one dollar=one vote. A true Libertarian would be in favor of Sanders over Clinton or Trump. Double plus good, citizen.
