David Hogg: "National School Walkout from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School"



Here is a David Hogg film: “National School Walkout from MSD” (Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Broward County, FL.  (30 min)


Video that he made during the actual shooting from inside a closet does not seem to be available.
   
A lot of his previous work (before the Valentine's Day event) on his YouTube channel, like the trip to L.A., is witty and interesting. 

Time has a major article on David Hogg's nonstop filmmaking here.

Picture: Fort Lauderdale Beach (Broward County), my visit, Nov. 2017

Update: March 24

David Hogg makes a confrontational video that raised eyebrows among conservatives on Facebook.  Some asked, is he a role model?   Is he talking to politicians, or to bloggers like me? 

Update: March 25

I realize this Facebook video comes from InfoWars, but the claims about Secret Service visits to the high school before the incident seem odd.

Siegfried Hecker reports on what he saw in North Korean nuclear weapons research (PBS short film)



This American scientist has seen North Korea’s nuclear program up close”, on PBS News. 


On PB, Miles O’Brien reports, Feb. 14, 2018.  The scientist is Siegfried Hecker. He was shown and allowed to hold a canister of warm, heavy plutonium ingots.  Then he was shown some of North Korea’s centrifuging facilities for separating out U-235, which had not been reported before. Hecker estimates between 20 and 40 fission bombs.

Intelligence analysts can look at North Korean procurement documents for the exact aluminum and steel components purchased before sanctions.
  
I can recall getting bizarre emails about four years ago about “jobs” overseeing Asian weapons component purchases.   Why were they sent to me?  I marked them as spam.
