WATCH: Biden’s Handlers Forced to Awkwardly Splice Propaganda Video with Obama and Pelosi Because He Can’t Read His Teleprompter

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 19:20

Joe Biden’s team released a pre-recorded video of Biden on Saturday and tried to pass it off as a “live” event.

81-year-old Joe Biden is actually hiding out in Delaware all weekend for another vacation.

Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi joined Joe Biden for his propaganda event dubbed the “National Organizing call with President Joe Biden, President Barack Obama, & Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi.”

Of course, Joe Biden had to prerecord the event because he needed multiple takes in order to get through his remarks.

Joe Biden’s handlers had to awkwardly splice the propaganda video because he was unable to read his teleprompter.

“We’d never have gotten the Affordable Care Act done. Period,” Biden said of Pelosi’s efforts.

The camera panned away and all of a sudden there is a close-up shot of Joe Biden with a dramatic change in the volume.

“I called it a historic day!” Biden said slurring his words.


Biden's handlers were forced to awkwardly splice this propaganda video together because of his inability to read the giant teleprompter.

Then they passed it off as "live," even though it was recorded yesterday so Biden could retreat to Delaware.

Joe Biden once again spread the debunked lie that “Trump told us to inject ourselves with bleach.”


Biden, flanked by Obama and Pelosi, again peddles the debunked lie that "Trump told us to inject ourselves with bleach."

— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) March 23, 2024

This is a brazen lie. Trump never told people to inject themselves with bleach.

President Trump in an April 2020 presser was referring to discussions of testing ultraviolet light on patients and possibly using the light inside the body. “And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it [the virus] out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside, or almost a cleaning, cause you see it gets in the lungs.”

Trump was mocked for suggesting light therapy while bio-tech firm Aytu BioScience announced they were partnering with the FDA and Cedars-Sinai on a UV light treatment to kill the coronavirus in intubated patients.

Delaware Legislature Passes Bill to Legalize Composting Human Bodies

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 19:00

The Delaware legislature has passed a bill to legalize the composting of human bodies.

The bill explains that composting human remains “uses large vessels to hold human remains together with straw, wood chips, or other natural materials for about 30 days.”

Supporters of human composting argue that it is an “environmentally sustainable and cost-effective alternative” to traditional burial and cremation.

According to a report from the Washington Times, “Those who died from a radiological accident or incident, those with radioactive implants and those who died infected with prion disease, Ebola, tuberculosis or any other disease that could survive the composting process will not be legally compostable.”

The Delaware House approved the bill 37-2 in January, and the state Senate passed it 14-7 on Thursday.

The bill will now move to Democrat Governor John Carney’s desk for approval.

Human composting is legal in Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, California, New York, and Nevada.

It was legalized in New York in 2023.

At the time, the New York State Catholic Conference vehemently opposed the bill.

“Composting is something we as a society associate with a sustainable method of eliminating organic trash that otherwise ends up in landfills. But human bodies are not household waste, and the bishops do not believe that the process meets the standard of reverent treatment of our earthly remains,” Dennis Poust, executive director of the New York State Catholic Conference, told the Catholic Courier.

“Like most bills in Albany, there were no public hearings allowing New Yorkers to weigh in on the pros and cons of the bill. It was all done behind closed doors,” Poust added. “The average New Yorker has no idea this bill was introduced, let alone passed. While it has been covered here and there in the press, it has received very little attention, which is troubling, because we certainly think that new methods of disposition of human remains ought to be talked about in society, and the public should have a chance to consider if this is a direction we want to go.”

Recompose is a Seattle funeral home that composts humans. It charges $7,000 and boasts that it can turn the deceased into soil in “as little as 30 days.”

The funeral home’s website explains that they offer a “laying in” ceremony when the body is placed in a vessel to compost.

“When you arrive at Recompose Seattle, you will be greeted by a member of our Services team who will guide you to the Gathering Space. Your person’s body will be in view when you walk into the Gathering Space, laying on a dark green bed we call a cradle, draped in a natural cloth,” the website explains.” The cradle will be stationed in front of our white, hexagonal threshold vessel, which is a passageway to our vessel system. A Recompose Services Specialist will guide you through the ceremony from start to finish.”

The company claims that “for every person who chooses Recompose over conventional burial or cremation, one metric ton of carbon dioxide is prevented from entering the atmosphere. In addition, our approach to human composting requires 1/8 the energy of conventional burial or cremation. Recompose allows you to choose an end-of-life option that strengthens the environment rather than depleting it.”

NO THANKS: Michigan Offering Locals Measly $500 a Month to House Illegal Aliens

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 18:40

The state of Michigan is offering locals a measly sum to house illegal aliens as it struggles with the pressure of the ongoing migrant invasion.

According to The Office of Global Michigan’s website, the government will offer homeowners a risible $500 a month if they agree to take in so-called refugees.

“The Newcomer Rental Subsidy program provides Refugees and other Newcomer population-eligible households with rental assistance up to $500 per month for up to 12 months, with eligibility based on immigration status and household income,” the website states.

Many refugees and other newcomers face critical housing challenges, and this program will increase access to better and more affordable housing opportunities while supporting a more rapid social integration to refugees and other newcomer populations to Michigan,” it continues. 

Last month, the Democratic-controlled state similarly asked residents to “sponsor” migrants through acts such as picking them up at the airport and helping them find work.

“Sponsors are expected to provide support to newly arrived refugees for 90 days through acts such as greeting refugee newcomers at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment,” the statement said.

Michigan is far from the only blue state asking for help from Americans to deal with the migrant invasion. Last August, the Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts, Kim Driscoll, pleaded with citizens to “step up if you’re willing to have an additional family be part of your family.”

“If you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family,” Driscoll told citizens. “Safe housing and shelter is our most pressing need.”

Meanwhile, deep blue cities across the country such as New York, Chicago and Denver are also at breaking point, as millions of people continue to illegally cross the border every year.

While many of them seek asylum under the guise of being a refugee, the majority are economic migrants simply looking to work in the United States. Many also have links to organized crime, with various gangs and drug cartels using the open border as an opportunity to expand their operations north of Mexico.

BREAKING: Biden Regime Launches Federal Gun-Grab Operation to “Keep Firearms Out of the Hands” of People Who “Pose a Threat to Others”

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 18:20

The Biden Regime on Saturday morning continued its attack on the Second Amendment and launched a federal gun-grab operation to keep firearms out the hands of people who “pose a threat to themselves and others.”

“The Justice Department launched the National Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) Resource Center (the Center) which will provide training and technical assistance to law enforcement officials, prosecutors, attorneys, judges, clinicians, victim service and social service providers, community organizations, and behavioral health professionals responsible for implementing laws designed to keep guns out of the hands of people who pose a threat to themselves or others.: – the DOJ announced on Saturday.

US Attorney General Merrick Garland said the ERPO program will work with partners across the country to use “every tool” to ‘protect communities from gun violence.’

“The launch of the National Extreme Risk Protection Order Resource Center will provide our partners across the country with valuable resources to keep firearms out of the hands of individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. “The establishment of the Center is the latest example of the Justice Department’s work to use every tool provided by the landmark Bipartisan Safer Communities Act to protect communities from gun violence.”

The Justice Department said the new program will allow medical professionals or “other groups” to petition a court to “temporarily prohibit” someone from purchasing or possessing firearms.

“ERPO laws, which are modeled off domestic violence protection orders, create a civil process allowing law enforcement, family members (in most states), and medical professionals or other groups (in some states) to petition a court to temporarily prohibit someone at risk of harming themselves or others from purchasing and possessing firearms for the duration of the order.” the DOJ said.

“Through the Center and its newly launched website, states, local governments, law enforcement, prosecutors, attorneys, judges, clinicians, victim service providers, and behavioral health and other social service providers will have direct access to critical information that will enhance their ability to reduce firearm homicides and suicides. The website will be maintained and updated to include newly developed resources for the field created through the Center, in partnership with BJA. The website also provides a platform for the Center to highlight emerging and promising practices in successful ERPO implementation and connect states and localities to innovative strategies to reduce gun violence and save lives.” the DOJ said.

Wyoming Governor Signs Ban on Sex Changes for Minors

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 18:00

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed a bill on Friday that bans doctors from performing “gender transition” and sex change procedures on minors.

Under Senate File 99, any healthcare professional who provides a minor with puberty blockers, hormone therapy, or sex change surgeries will be subject to having their licenses suspended or revoked.

While he signed the bill, the governor did not seem enthusiastic about doing so.

“I signed SF99 because I support the protections this bill includes for children, however it is my belief that the government is straying into the personal affairs of families,” Governor Gordon said in a statement about the legislation.

Gordon continued, “Our legislature needs to sort out its intentions with regard to parental rights. While it inserts governmental prerogative in some places, it affirms parental rights in others.”

Of course, the American Civil Liberties Union of Wyoming opposes the ban.

“By signing this bill into law, Gov. Gordon has put the government in charge of making vital decisions traditionally reserved for parents in Wyoming,” ACLU of Wyoming Executive Director Libby Skarin said in the announcement. “This ban won’t stop Wyomingites from being trans, but it will deny them critical support that helps struggling transgender youth grow up to become thriving transgender adults.”

The law will go into effect on July 1.

Mother Arrested Over Allegations She Overheard Her Four-Year-Old Son Shoot Himself

Arieana Scott, 22,/Baton Rouge Police Dept

When thug life meets consequences

The mother of a four-year-old Louisiana boy has been arrested over allegations she overheard him shooting himself and did not check on him.

In her Baton Rouge home, Arieana Scott, 22, allegedly had a firearm that her son was able to access in her closet.

According to police, the boy shot himself with the illegal firearm with modified features on the morning of March 20 around 9:30 am.

The Daily Mail reports,

Initially, officers said that the mother claimed to have heard the firearm go off from her bedroom and then found the boy with a gunshot wound.

However, an affidavit for her arrest released Thursday says that she went to sleep for a short time before waking back up to find the boy in a pool of blood.

Scott said that she called for the boy and after not hearing anything back from him, fell back asleep.

It was revealed that Scott tried to claim she didn’t know where the gun came from due to a felony criminal record, according to WBRZ.

She then copped to having the unsecured handgun in her bedroom closet, though she does not know how the four-year-old got to it, police said.

When police arrived and located the gun, they obtained a warrant to search Scott’s home.

They found a loaded .40 caliber Glock handgun equipped with a ‘switch’ that could convert the gun into an automatic weapon and a shell casing was found in the boy’s bedroom.

According to police, Scott was charged with improper supervision of a minor by a parent, possession of a firearm by someone convicted of certain felonies, and possession of a machine gun by a felon.

The bond amount has been set at $65,000, and Child Services has been notified.

As a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, Scott’s son was admitted to the local hospital and is in critical condition.

Emerald Robinson on What Mike Gallagher and the Uniparty Are Plotting to Deny Trump His Presidency

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 17:20

RINO Representative Mike Gallagher (WI) will exit the House as early as next month.

Gallagher, who is currently serving as the chairman of the Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party, last month announced that he will not seek reelection.

Instead of serving out the rest of his term, Gallagher will retire early leaving the GOP with a one-vote majority!

But it’s worse than that.

Gallagher announced he will leave in mid-April. If Gallagher would have left before April 9th he would have triggered a special election in his district. Because he is leaving after April 9th but still in April, there will be no special election so the seat will remain empty.

This ensures that Republicans will lose another seat in Congress.

This is how the Uniparty works.

They do everything they can to screw their voters.

— @amuse (@amuse) March 23, 2024

Dirty Ken Buck already said more Republicans will follow him out of Congress before the year ends.

This will give Democrats the majority just as the 2024 election unfolds.

Emerald Robinson sees why this is all happening.

Emerald Robinson: The early retirements of Ken Buck and Mike Gallagher are part of a scheme by the uniparty cabal to stop Trump from winning the 2024 election. How? They want to flip the House blue in time to nullify the electoral vote via the 14th Amendment.

‘Transgender’ Biological Man Sentenced for Murder of 12-Year-Old Girl in Pennsylvania

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 17:00

A transgender biological man has been sentenced to 15 to 40 years in state prison for the murder of a 12-year-old girl in Pennsylvania.

Joshua “Ash” Cooper, 18, pled guilty on Thursday to third-degree murder, possession of an instrument of crime, and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence for the November 2022 murder of Morgan Connors, 12.

Just after 4 p.m. on November 25, 2022, the Bensalem Township Police Department received a 911 call about a possible murder from the Top of the Ridge Trailer Park.

The call was from a juvenile witness who was on an Instagram video chat with Cooper, who claimed that he had just killed someone.

During the call, Cooper flipped the phone around and showed the witness Connors’ bloody legs and feet.

The transgender killer then asked the juvenile witness to help clean up and dispose of the child’s body.

According to a press release from the Bucks County District Atorney’s office, “Police went to the Gibson Road property and as they arrived, they spotted a juvenile running out of the back of the trailer. Officers entered the residence and observed a deceased juvenile female, later identified as Connors, on the floor of the bathroom with an apparent gunshot wound. There were also indications that substantial steps were taken to clean up the crime scene.”

Police set up a perimeter around the trailer park and eventually found and arrested Cooper.

The district attorney’s office said, “The investigation revealed that Cooper used a firearm from his father’s gun safe in the home to shoot the victim. Cooper was able to get into the safe by replacing the batteries his father had removed to make the combination lock inoperable.”

In addition to the 15 to 40 years in state prison, Cooper was also sentenced to seven years of probation.

During sentencing, Chief Deputy District Attorney Kristin M. McElroy read an impact statement from the victim’s grandfather, who discussed the “intense pain and heartbreak” of losing his granddaughter.

“The human heart is not built for such heartbreak,” the letter said.

New York’s Shoplifting Epidemic Creating Shadow ‘Resale Economy’ as Businesses Lose Billions

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 16:40

New York’s shoplifting epidemic is now so severe that a shadow “resale economy” has formed across online marketplaces.

According to a report from The New York Post, some of the city’s most notorious thieves are hawking products at a discount prices on services such as Facebook and eBay. Organized gangs are even providing their underlings “shopping lists” of the specific items they want stolen.

In some cases, thieves even stealing perishable items such as expensive ice cream before selling them on for profit to people at subway stations or local bodegas.

One law enforcement source told the Post:

They get shopping lists for items that include cellphones, power tools, handbags… They bring stolen goods to [illicit] wholesalers in the five boroughs.

Members of the booster crew get their cash. Then the dealer, if you will, distributes them through his own network, via storefronts, if he has them, or he puts them online and sells to consumers through Facebook Marketplace.

Last month, New York’s Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul touted her efforts to try and crack down on the issue, which is costing local businesses a staggering $4.4 billion every year.

Among her proposals included the creation of  a state police team to prosecute organized theft rings and greater surveillance systems for the resale of stolen goods.

“What we are focused on is what has become a sophisticated organized retail operation, the smash-and-grab efforts,” she said at the time. “They go in and swipe everything off the shelves.”

Shoplifting across New York City has skyrocketed in recent years, rising 64 percent between June 2019 and June 2023, according to the Council on Criminal Justice. This is above even the 61 percent jump seen in Los Angeles, where shoplifting is effectively decriminliazed.

Special Election For McCarthy Seat Heads For A May Runoff With Trump Endorsed Candidate

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 16:20

With all the drama these days, let’s not forget that the special election is coming.

It will be a two-man race between Republicans Vince Fong and Mike Boudreaux in a May runoff for the seat that former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy vacated.

A special election that will give the winner a significant advantage in the second round of the general election.

This fall, Fong and Boudreaux will have the opportunity to present themselves as incumbent members of Congress, which will give them a considerable advantage in November.

— President Trump News (@Trump_New123) March 18, 2024

Politico reports,

Fong, a state legislator, has emerged as the clear front-runner. He rode endorsements from McCarthy — his one-time boss — former President Donald Trump and California GOP House members to first-place finishes in both the March primary and the subsequent special election with over 40 percent of the vote.

Boudreaux, the Tulare County sheriff, has aligned local support and channeled skepticism of the Republican machine that propelled the careers of both McCarthy and Fong. He secured about a quarter of the vote in both March elections and could increase his share in the May runoff if he consolidates Republicans who did not back Fong.

Another candidate, GOP businessperson Kyle Kirkland, threw his support behind Boudreaux after losing.

McCarthy’s abrupt resignation last December set off a Republican scramble to claim his Bakersfield-area seat. It also created a complex political shuffle: Voters had to select someone to fill the vacancy — the aim of Tuesday’s special election — as well as a candidate for the next two-year term.

According to a seperate Associated Press report, Trump endorsed Fong in February. Boudreaux has the support of former acting director of national intelligence Ric Grenell and Republican state Sen. Shannon Grove of Bakersfield.

Because of Trump’s involvement, the race is being watched as a possible proxy vote on the former president’s clout as he heads toward an all-but-certain matchup against President Joe Biden in November.

McCarthy’s dramatic fall in the House — he is the only speaker in history to be voted out of the job — left behind a messy race to succeed him that has included an ongoing lawsuit and exposed rivalries within the GOP.

Republicans occupy only 11 of the state’s 52 House seats, with the one held by McCarthy currently vacant.

Thank you @realDonaldTrump! Let’s get out the vote for the March 19th Special Election!

Woman Arrested for Arson at Church and Starting Fire in Patrol Car — All While Nude

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 16:00

A Florida woman has been arrested for arson at a church, then lighting a fire in the patrol car after her arrest — all while nude.

Taylor Nicole Pyatte, 42, was arrested by the Fort Myers Police Department just before 6 a.m. on Thursday.

“According to the Fort Myers Police Department, at around 5:32 a.m. on Thursday, an officer put out a small fire near 2431 Cleveland Avenue and another small one at Grace Church at 2415 Grand Avenue,” local station WINK reports.

Pyatte was found by the fire, naked.

While in the patrol vehicle, Pyatte started another fire in the car’s door panel.

“She had been searched prior; however, police believe she may have hidden the lighter somewhere that officers would not find it,” the report added.

Pyatte has been charged with arson and damage to property or criminal mischief.

Her next court appearance is scheduled for April 22.

Former Trump Defense Sec Says Liz Cheney, J6 Committee Threatened to ‘Make My Life Hell’ If He Contradicted Their Preferred Narrative

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 15:40

Donald Trump’s former acting Secretary of Defense, Chris Miller, has revealed that he felt “threatened” by former Congresswoman Liz Cheney and other members of the January 6th Committee after he refused to endorse their version of events.

In an interview with Daily Mail, Miller said that he became “fearful” of the panel’s tactics after they tried to stop him making claims that ran contrary to their preferred narrative.

According to Miller, the panel were particularly upset by a Fox News interview he gave with Trump national security official Kash Patel in which he pointed out that the former president authorized the National Guard to step in quell the protests taking place in and around the Capitol.

“The two of us were on [the Fox News show] and the next day my lawyer got a call from the Jan. 6 staff director – I forgot exactly who it was – but basically saying, very legalistic: ‘Well, if your client has additional information he wants to share, we’d be happy to have him re-interviewed,'” Miller explained.

“It was more that latent threat of: ‘If you want to keep going on TV, we’re gonna drag you in here again for additional hours of hearing testimony.’ So that was the nature of that whole thing,'” he continued.

He also outlined his view that the Committee’s Vice Chair Liz Cheney was the person “running the show” and that she was concerned about the “optics” of his claims that Trump attempted to restore order.

Miller, who was appointed as acting Secretary of Defense in October after his precedessor refused to act on evidence of widespread election fraud, added that he had not wanted to publicly discuss his concerns until now.

“I didn’t talk about it with anybody else because of the fear or the concern,” he said. “I wasn’t communicating with anybody, because I knew any interactions I had on it would result in me having to… acknowledge that I’d been in communications with other people. And then that just sort of opens up a whole can of worms with the investigators that I just didn’t want to do.’

“It was much easier just to not be involved with anybody or talk to anybody about this stuff because it was going to cause conflict and difficulties with the investigating team,” he continued. “So I didn’t talk to other people, quite simply.”

It is far from the first time that the J6 Committee has proven to be a witchhunt against Donald Trump. In January, an explosive report from Fox News revealed how the panel had secretly deleted over 100 potentially critical pieces of evidence right before the GOP took over the House of Representatives in 2022.

CNN Admits Russian Concert Massacre ‘Very Embarassing’ For Dementia Joe, Citing Resurgence of ISIS

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 15:20

A CNN National Security analyst has admitted that if the Islamic State (ISIS) really were behind the deadly terror attack in Moscow on Friday night then that would be “very embarassing” for Joe Biden.

More than 100 people have been confirmed dead following the attack at a Moscow concert hall on Friday evening in one of the deadliest attacks on Russia in decades. ISIS have claimed responsibility for the massacre.

According to CNN’s Peter Bergen, there are still questions as to whether ISIS really were behind the attack, although intelligence appears to indicate that they were:

Initially, when I saw this, I was a little skeptical, because, typically, if you’re an ISIS fighter, you don’t care about getting killed at the scene of the crime. You don’t — you’re not looking for a getaway, you’re looking to martyr yourself. So, in this case, it looks like the people did get away, according to the Russians. And that isn’t sort of typical for an ISIS-type attack.

However, the fact that it’s not just the Americans who had intelligence in their system about ISIS presence in Moscow, it turns out that the Russians did, too. Otherwise, why would Russian state television report on March 7 about a plan to attack a Moscow synagogue by ISIS? So, I don’t know. It isn’t absolutely typical of their M.O. But, certainly, ISIS has attacked concert venues in the past.

Bergen added that the key issue for Biden is where the terrorists were trained, particularly if it was in the now Talbian-controlled country of Afghanistan:

In, Paris, you recall in 2015, they killed 130 people, most — many of them were attending a concert. And, obviously, this work could well be — it could be just what it — as this group says. I’m still looking for evidence, and, hopefully, we’ll identify who these people are relatively quickly. Are they Tajiks? Are they Chechens? If they’re part of ISIS. Did they train in Afghanistan? That’s a very big question here.

Obviously, that would be very embarrassing for the Biden administration if it turned out that ISIS-K has sort of re-grouped to the extent that they can reach out to other countries [and] carry out major attacks at a time when they’re responsible for the withdrawal from — of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

Under the Trump administration, ISIS were completely obliterated by an aggressive and effective military campaign against targets in Afghanistan and across the Middle East. However, it appears they have managed to regroup in recent years, partially as a result of Joe Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Their reported resurgence elevates the risk of terror attacks across the U.S. and Europe, which had become commonplace before Trump took office in 2016.

Florida City Commissioner Under Investigation for Allegedly Stealing Over $100,000 from 96-Year-Old Woman

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 15:00

Orlando City Commissioner Regina Hill is under investigation for allegedly stealing over $100,000 from a 96-year-old woman.

Hill is believed to have used the money for cosmetic and dental surgeries, hotels, and more.

According to an affidavit from an agent for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, obtained by USA Today, Hill is alleged to have started financially exploiting the woman on March 15, 2021.

USA Today reports:

The special agent’s investigation suggests Hill had no prior relationship with the elderly woman before meeting her in March 2021 and obtaining power of attorney over her a little over a month later, according to the court records obtained by USA TODAY on Wednesday.

In an email to USA TODAY on Wednesday, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement confirmed that an active investigation is ongoing against Hill, but the agency could not provide additional information. It remains unclear if Hill is facing any criminal charges.

The investigation began when Hill’s former aide reported that her name was listed on documents used by the commissioner to purchase a new home. The 96-year-old woman’s name was also listed as a co-buyer.

“After speaking to the 96-year-old woman, the agent learned that she never permitted Hill to use her personal information to buy the home, court documents show,” the report explains. “As of March 7, the day the affidavit was filed, the home was abandoned and without electricity or running water, the documents continued.”

The court documents say Hill used the woman’s money to purchase a facelift, expensive perfumes, clothing, “numerous intravenous infusions of vitamins,” car insurance payments, dental surgery, and a hotel room in Miami on New Year’s Eve.

The victim told law enforcement that she never agreed to allow Hill to have power of attorney or use money from her bank accounts. She said that she remembers signing some type of document, but that she was confused about what it was.

Mexican Man Pleads Guilty to Smuggling Illegal Aliens into California Through the Sewer

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 14:45

A Mexican man has pleaded guilty to federal charges of smuggling illegal aliens into California through sewer pipes.

Kevin Noe Campos Villa, 20, was arrested in January for smuggling seven migrants into the U.S.

According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California, “when confronted by Border Patrol agents, Campos and three of the immigrants he was guiding ran to avoid apprehension. While attempting to escape, they fell into the Tijuana River and had to be rescued by San Diego lifeguards.”

“Sewer tubes between the United States and Mexico have grates to prevent individuals from illegally entering the United States,” the press release explained. “During heavy rain, the grates are opened to let water flow through the sewer tubes without damaging the grates. Due to heavy rain that was occurring in the area at the time, the grates were open and Campos used the opportunity to smuggle the unauthorized immigrants into the United States.”

Campos admitted to helping the group cross the border in exchange for $6,000.

“This case is yet another example of transnational smuggling organizations placing profits over safety,” said U.S. Attorney Tara McGrath. “Thankfully, due to law enforcement intervention and the assistance of local lifeguards, all lives were spared.”

Campos now faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He is scheduled to be sentenced on June 17, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. by U.S. District Judge Linda Lopez.

Starbucks Bathroom Horror: Police Arrest Man Who filmed Over 90 Victims Including One As Young As Four

According to reports, a man allegedly installed a hidden camera inside the restrooms of a California Starbucks. The camera was found underneath the sink by an employee facing the toilet at Starbucks on January 31.

Police described Louie Juarez Jr., 35, as a ‘violent predator’ who allegedly filmed over 90 victims in restrooms before he was arrested on Friday.

The Daily Mail reports,

Juarez was arrested at his home, where police found other micro cameras, 20 firearms, including an assault rifle, an unregistered gun and high-capacity magazines.

Lydia Zapata, who said she used the restroom in the coffee shop last week, told ABC 7: ‘It’s horrible because we use the restroom quite a lot.’

Authorities do not know if Juarez posted the footage online or sent it to anyone else. They are also not sure if he has done this before at other public places.

‘That is a possibility and that’s why we’re asking the public if they have any other information or they believe they used the bathroom at this coffee shop to contact detectives,’ Officer Hernandez said.

Another horrified resident, Marta Gonzalez told KTVU: ‘To hear somebody’s looking at us…that’s my privacy, my kids, you know. That’s horrible.’

In response to the frightening discovery, Starbucks told that it is a ‘deeply disturbing incident’.

‘We cannot overstate the importance of providing a safe environment for our customers and partners (employees),’ the coffee company added.


As part of their cooperation with law enforcement, Starbucks said that they were grateful to the police. This scary discovery has caused many customers to question whether it was a good idea to use a public restroom.

“And it makes you think about how prevalent that might be anywhere outside of even Starbucks,” Scott Picanco, a San Jose resident told abc 7.

Alli Rodriguez, another local resident said: ‘So now I’m just second guessing every restroom that’s out in public? It’s really gross. And that person should be ashamed of themselves.’

During his arrest at his home, police found other micro cameras, 20 firearms,


The charges against Juarez include possession of child pornography, installation of an audio-enhanced surveillance camera, and possession of an assault rifle.

Police are asking anyone who believes they may have been filmed to contact the San Jose Police Department.

Mike Benz: Deep State – Foreign Policy Establishment Could Go Full Authoritarian – “I Believe They Already Have” (VIDEO)

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 14:15

Mike Benz, founder of the Foundation for Freedom Online, joined Steve Bannon on Friday following his report that Hunter Biden was involved with the CIA in Ukraine.

Benz is the former State Department official with responsibilities in formulating and negotiating US foreign policy on international communications and information technology matters.

During their discussion Benz described the foreign policy establishment and the likelihood that they could go full authoritarian. Benz argues that he believes they already have.

Mike Benz: Oftentimes, when rule of law is insufficient to contain that, we kick out our counterinsurgency doctrine, where there’s a lot of nasty things that we will do to the resident population in order to get their minds right to stop opposing the ruling regime. And the issue is, you need legitimacy in order to govern cheaply. That is, a people who have grievances in their heart, a people who feel that the government is illegitimate, are expensive to govern…

…In a counterinsurgency situation, you are starting off the chess game, essentially, with them already having those grievances, and you need to exert control over that population in order to force them to a state where they are compliant and then perceive legitimacy. And the issue is, is there’s a trade-off between legitimacy and control. The more control you exert, the more illegitimate people perceive things to be. So you create 10 more insurgents with every one insurgent that you persecute. In fact, we’re seeing this right now, I think, reflected in the polling numbers for Donald Trump in this election cycle, where the more they’re persecuting him, the more his numbers are going up, which was much to their surprise. Anyone who would read US military doctrine would on counterinsurgency would see that immediately. But the other way…

So there’s only so far they can go. And now they may go full authoritarian. You can argue they already have. I believe they already have with what they’ve done, breaking two and a half centuries of precedent with everything they’ve done with the Justice Department, the bankrupting folks, going after everyone around the populist universe, including yourself. But the other way is if a certain node within the blob itself can be convinced that it’s not worth going full control, that it would be too far in terms of creating international perceptions of illegitimacy if their crackdown is too hard. And there are certain concessions that Trump world makes to the blob.

So for example, I heard it floated that Marco Rubio, who knows who the vice President pick is going to be, right? It could be one of 10,000 people. That name was floated this week quite publicly. Senator Rubio is the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee. He’s a person who, a little bit like Ted Cruz, has tried to position himself as not a never-trumper, but very much like with the foreign policy side, but straddling those two worlds, but very definitively being pro-blob consensus. A figure like Marco Rubio, for example, might be able to convince a critical note within the blob that while we don’t like Trump, and We’re going to do a little bit of election rigging.

Vladimir Putin Speaks to Country Following Crocus City Hall Massacre – Says ISIS Terrorists Were Attempting to Flee to Ukraine

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 14:00

As reported earlier on Friday by Paul Seran, Terrorists attacked a major music venue located in Krasnogorsk, a city in the north-west of the Moscow region, on Friday afternoon. This occurred just days after the American embassy in Russia warned citizens of imminent attacks at mass events.

At least 115 Russians were slaughtered during the attack.
Sputnik reported:

“At least three people in camouflage burst into the ground floor of the Crocus City Hall venue and opened fire with automatic weapons. The gunmen then threw a grenade or an incendiary bomb, which started a fire in the venue, according to a Sputnik correspondent.

Audience members lay down on the floor to escape the shooting. After 15 to 20 minutes they began to move towards the exit.

The Special Rapid Response Unit (SOBR) and Special Purpose Mobile Unit (OMON), as well as firefighters, rushed to the scene of the incident.”

Ukrainian Intelligence blamed Putin’s Special Forces for organizing the Crocus City Hall terrorist attack on Friday.

Police respond to Crocus City Hall following the terrorist attack on Friday.

But later, the Islamic State (ISIS) later took credit for the deadly shooting at the Crocus City Hall and theater.  At least 60 were reportedly killed in the gruesome attack.

ISIS released a statement to the Amaq News Agency that frequently carries news of the terror group’s attacks on a gathering of “Christians.”

President Vladimir Putin spoke to the Russian people on Saturday following the horrific attack.

Putin told his country that the terrorists tried to escape and were moving towards Ukraine.

Via ANI.
On the shooting that happened at a concert in the Crocus City Hall near Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin says, “…They tried to escape; they were moving toward the border of Ukraine…The investigative authority will do everything to identify them. These criminals went specifically to kill our people…We expect that other nations that share our pain to cooperate with us. These terrorists have no nationality…”

FBI Informs Passengers of Alaska Airlines Flight that Had a Panel Blowout Midair Might be ‘Victims of a Crime’

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 13:45

Passengers aboard an Alaska Airlines flight that experienced a panel blowout midair may have been exposed to criminal activity, according to a letter from the FBI.

CBS News has obtained a copy of the correspondence, which reveals the ongoing investigation into the harrowing incident aboard Flight No. 1282.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Alaska flight 1282, a Boeing 737-9 MAX bound for Ontario, California, departed Portland, Oregon, just after 5 pm Pacific time earlier this year when a deactivated emergency door used as a regular cabin window blew out at 16,000 feet. Six crew members and 171 passengers were aboard the jet.

An X/Twitter user discovered a recording of the female pilot frantically calling air traffic control after the plane section blew out. The audio is quite chilling.

“Portland approach, Alaska 1282 emergency! Aircraft is now leveling 12,000 in a left turn heading three four zero. We need a divert. We’ve declared an emergency. We are depressurized. We have 177 passengers on board, and a seal is…18,900.”

I found the @liveatc recording of #ASA1282 declaring an emergency with Seattle Center around 5:12pm PT. Aircraft would have been ~12,000 ft and climbing. “Uhhhh we’d like to get down.”

Captured footage shows what happened after the plane lost its part. It shows fliers staring out the gaping hole of the fuselage, a baby crying, and passengers appearing to mutter that they thought they were going to die.

The air also ripped the shirt off a little boy as his mom desperately held onto him. Phones were also sucked away from passengers and disappeared into the sky.

Somehow, everyone aboard the flight escaped without injuries. Boeing, Alaska Airlines, and the National Transportation Safety Board have all launched investigations to determine what caused the part to break off.

According to a new report released by the National Transportation Safety Board on Tuesday, the door panel that blew out had no bolts installed. Furthermore, the faulty door plug was manufactured by Spirit AeroSystems in Malaysia.

According to CBS, a victim specialist from the Seattle Division of the FBI addressed the two-page letter to the 174 passengers and six crew members on board, indicating that they could potentially be victims of a crime.

“I’m contacting you because we have identified you as a possible victim of a crime,” the FBI letter said. “This case is currently under investigation by the FBI. A criminal investigation can be a lengthy undertaking, and, for several reasons, we cannot tell you about its progress at this time.”

More from CBS:

There are a “large number of potential victims in this case,” the FBI said in their letter. The letter detailed how the flyers could access information about the case and warned that criminal investigations “can be a lengthy undertaking.”

The plane had reached approximately 16,000 feet when the panel fell off, one passenger said in a lawsuit filed against Alaska Airlines, Boeing and door plug manufacturer Spirit Aerosystems, claiming the event left him and six other passengers with physical injuries and “serious emotional distress, fear, and anxiety.” The passenger said his seatbelt saved him from being sucked out of the gaping hole.

Three passengers on the Alaska Airlines plane sued the airline and Boeing for $1 billion, claiming negligence caused the incident. Officials said several people sustained minor injuries, but no one was seriously hurt.

The FAA ordered a temporary grounding of certain Boeing 737 Max 9 planes shortly after the incident and required safety inspections for the aircraft in operation worldwide. The National Transportation Safety Board’s preliminary report found four bolts meant to hold the door plug in place were missing.

The U.S. Justice Department is currently investigating the blowout, a person familiar with the investigation confirmed earlier this month to CBS News. It is not clear if their investigation is related to the letter sent by the FBI Seattle office.

The probe into this incident contributes to an expanding portfolio of legal challenges confronting Boeing.

Yahoo News reported:

March 2024

  • The FAA’s 737 Max production audit finds multiple instances where Boeing allegedly did not comply with manufacturing quality control requirements.
  • In two separate incidents, a Boeing 777-200 loses a wheel during takeoff from San Francisco and a Boeing 737 skids off the runway after landing in Houston.
  • The next week, a prominent Boeing whistleblower — former employee John Barnett — dies by suicide while in Charleston, S.C., for a deposition for a lawsuit against Boeing.
  • A Boeing 787 Dreamliner nose-dives during a flight from Sydney to Auckland, New Zealand, injuring at least 50 people, on the same day a Boeing 777 flight from Sydney is forced to turn around due to a maintenance issue.
  • Another Boeing 777 is forced to make an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport after pilots report a flat tire.
  • A Boeing 737 that took off from San Francisco later that week is found to be missing a panel during a postflight inspection.

February 2024

  • The NTSB publishes a preliminary report that found the Alaska Airlines flight was missing four key bolts, which is why the door plug blew out.

January 2024

  • Alaska Airlines Flight 1282 experiences a door plug blowout midflight. The FAA subsequently grounds all Max 9 aircraft to investigate.

December 2023

  • Boeing urges airlines to inspect all 737 Max jets for potential loose hardware in the plane’s rudder control systems.

August 2023

  • Boeing reports a supplier quality issue with 737 Max planes involving improperly drilled holes.

October 2022

  • The FAA tells Boeing that some documents submitted for the certification review of the 737 Max 7 are incomplete.

March 2021

  • China’s aviation regulator claims there are major safety concerns with the Boeing Max jets.

November 2020

  • The FAA allows Boeing 737 Max planes to fly again.

September 2020

  • An 18-month-long investigation by a House of Representatives panel concludes that Boeing failed in its design and development of the Max aircraft and was not fully transparent with the FAA.

January 2020

  • Boeing suspends all 737 production.

March 2019

  • Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, a Boeing 737 Max 8, reports a “flight control” problem to the control tower one minute after taking off from Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The plane crashes six minutes after takeoff, killing all 157 people on board.
  • China decides to ground all Boeing 737 Max planes. The FAA follows.

November 2018

  • The FAA and Boeing announce they are investigating software and design changes on all 737 Max planes following the Lion Air crash.

October 2018

  • Lion Air Flight 610, a Boeing 737 Max aircraft, crashes 13 minutes after takeoff from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Indonesia. All 189 on board are killed.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, it turns out that woke diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) standards, not unexpectedly, may have played a role in this horrifying incident that could have killed nearly 200 passengers and caused other fatalities on the ground below.

Biden’s federal agencies and many US companies, including airlines, prioritize DEI and race or gender identity over job candidates’ abilities in the hiring process. Not only is it racist to judge employees based on the color of their skin, but this could create serious risks for the public, especially when it comes to our planes, trains, and automobiles.

Did Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Play a Role in Alaska Airlines Plane Losing Door Mid-Flight? Is DEI Endangering Lives? Elon Musk Seems to Think So After Seeing Boeing’s Corporate Filings and DEI Incentives

Also, The Gateway Pundit previously reported Boeing whistleblower John Barnett was found dead from a self-inflicted wound inside his vehicle outside a hotel in Charleston, South Carolina days after testifying against the airplane company.

John Barnett was found dead on March 9. He worked for Boeing for 32 years until he retired in 2017.

“Barnett’s death came during a break in depositions in a whistleblower retaliation suit, where he alleged under-pressure workers were deliberately fitting sub-standard parts to aircraft on the assembly line.” the Daily Mail reported.

Barnett’s lawyers are asking for a thorough probe because they don’t believe he committed suicide.

“John was in the midst of a deposition in his whistleblower case, which finally was nearing the end,” Barnett’s lawyers said, according to The New York Post. “He was in very good spirits and really looking forward to putting this phase of his life behind him and moving on.”

A close family friend of John Barnett disclosed his haunting premonition before his untimely death.

Jennifer, whose mother has been lifelong friends with Barnett’s mother, shared that Barnett had expressed concerns about potentially ending up dead in a scenario falsely framed as suicide.

Jennifer recounted her conversations with Barnett, emphasizing his love for life and dismissing any possibility that he could have taken his own life.

“He wasn’t concerned about safety because I asked him, I said, aren’t you scared? And his voice and the way he would talk, ‘no, I ain’t scared,’ he said, but if anything happens to me, it’s not suicide. I know that he did not commit suicide. There’s no way. He loved life too much. He loved his family too much. He loved his brothers too much to put them through what they’re going through right now,” she said.

SHOCKING VIDEO: California Man Arrested for Stealing Human Leg from Fatal Train Accident… and EATING it

Sat, 03/23/2024 - 13:30

A California man has been arrested for stealing a human leg from a fatal train accident — and eating it.

The accident and subsequent cannibalism took place at the Amtrak station in Wasco on Friday.

1st Responder Media, who posted a video of the cannibalism, identified the suspect as Resendo Tellez, 27.

A Wasco, CA man takes a human leg from a fatal train accident scene and starts eating it.

The Kern County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal incident in the Wasco area where a pedestrian was struck by a train, resulting in their death and the severing of their leg.…

“Deputies learned that 27-year old Resendo Tellez removed evidence from the accident scene. Tellez was located and arrested without incident for multiple outstanding warrants and taking evidence from the scene. BNSF Investigators arrived and assumed the investigation.”

In the video of the incident, Tellez appears to be checking out the leg, and sniffing it, before deciding to take a bite.

At one point, Tellez appeared to wave at the person filming before fleeing with his leg — swinging it as he went.

The Kern County Sheriff’s Office told the New York Post that Tellez had multiple outstanding warrants and was arrested for taking evidence from the scene of an accident.
