Hillary Clinton Says Trump is Hitler, Will Lock Up His Political Opponents and End All US Elections as We Know It (VIDEO)

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 16:20

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday launched another attack on Trump while the Biden Regime is trying to put the former president in prison for non-crimes.

Hillary Clinton doubled down on her claims that Trump is trying to jail his political opponents – while Trump is in court fighting the Biden Regime’s Soviet-style lawfare trial.

“Maybe he wouldn’t jail all of his political opponents. One is one too many. Maybe he wouldn’t try to force out business, the members of the press who didn’t agree with him. One is one too many,” Hillary Clinton said.

Clinton suggested Trump would end all elections.

Typical projection. The Democrats are through with elections. Rush Limbaugh called this in October 2020.

“They [the Democrats] resent the whole premise behind elections. They don’t believe they should have to persuade anybody to agree with them.,” the late great Rush Limbaugh said.

Hillary Clinton suggested Trump would end elections.

“We go down the line, and maybe this would be our last election because someone who will not accept the validity of an election is someone who doesn’t believe in elections,” Hillary Clinton said.

Hillary also suggested Trump is Hitler.

“The world has been here before. People did not take the kind of threats that we saw in the 1930s as seriously as they should…” Hillary said.

Hillary made similar remarks last month during her podcast interview with Marc Elias, a far-left lawyer who helped Hillary purchase the fake Trump-Russia dossier in 2016.

“Putin does what [Trump] would like to do,” Hillary Clinton said to corrupt left-wing lawyer Marc Elias on his “Democracy Docket” podcast. “Kill his opposition, imprison his opposition, drive journalists into exile, rule without any check or balance. That’s what Trump really wants. And so we have to be very conscious of how he sees the world because in that world, he only sees strong men leaders. He sees Putin. He sees Xi. He sees Kim Jong Un in North Korea. Those are the people he is modeling himself after and we’ve been down this road in our, you know, world history. We sure don’t want to go down that again.”

The “Left” Is a “Bigger Danger” to Our Country than Russia and China – President Trump Drops Truth Bombs on the Way into Today’s NYC Show Trial (VIDEO)

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 16:00
President Trump speaks to reporters on Thursday morning on his way into court in the New York City Alvin Bragg show trial.

President Trump took time to speak with supporters on Thursday morning on his way into court in the New York City Alvin Bragg – Juan Merchan show trial.

President Trump was flanked today by Senator Rick Scott from Florida who joined him in the courtroom.

President Trump first shamed American Jews for voting Democrat after the unprecedented attacks by the far left in recent weeks at campuses across the United States.

Recall that President Trump was the first US president in history to complete peace agreements between Israel and several Muslim nations labeled The Abraham Accords.

Trump then dropped this truth bomb that is obvious to anyone paying attention, the far left today is a “bigger danger” to the country than even Russia or China.

President Donald Trump: Thank you very much. What Biden is doing with respect to Israel is disgraceful. If any Jewish person voted for Joe Biden, they should be ashamed of themselves. He’s totally abandoned Israel, and nobody can believe it. I guess he feels good about it because he did it as a political decision. You have to do the right decision, not the political decision. But he did a very bad thing. I just want to let you know that we’re I just filed a major motion in the Appelate Division concerning the absolutely unconstitutional gag order, where I’m essentially not allowed to talk to you about anything meaningful that’s going on in the case. And many good things are going on with the case. It shouldn’t have been filed. They had this morning the top legal scholars in the country. This is a Frankenstein case. They took a dead misdemeanor. They attached it to a dead alleged federal felony and zapped it back into life.

So many of us are just amazed to watch this actually walk into court because it’s not a recognizable crime that any of us have seen. It’s Jonathan Turley. I’ve been doing this for 60 years, and I don’t understand what crime he’s been charged with. Nobody understands this. I just don’t get the crime. There’s no evidence of any crime whatsoever. This is a shame. That’s Alan Dershowitz. And these are people that speak their minds. They’re not for me. They’re for justice. This is another one. This is without precedent in American history. Only with the desperation of President Joe Biden and his fanatic left wing enforcers did it become possible to think about arresting and jailing their major political opponent. This case must be taken out of Judge Merchan’s head because it’s totally conflicted. Judge Merchan is totally conflicted. Like probably no judge has ever been conflicted before. Here’s another one, Manhattan DA, Alvin Bragg. His prosecution of former President Donald Trump violates both the federal and state constitutions. This is a prosecutor making it up as he goes along. Due process – does not tolerate that. So these are statements. This is Andrew McCarthy made that statement. Highly respected. A judge is allowing wide scope of information that has absolutely nothing to do with the case. That’s Rebecca Rose Woodland at Fox News.

Today, we have Rick Scott here, Senator Rick Scott. We have other politicians here. We have people, many people in support.

The outside of this building is closed down, like Fort Knox. Nobody’s ever seen. We have so many police down here, New York’s finest, and they are New York’s finest. They’re just told what to do. But they don’t have them at Columbia, they don’t have them at NYU or any other places. This is like an armed camp down here.

And you have nothing to worry about. Believe me, your problem is from the left. It’s not from the right. Big problem from the left. It’s from within, from within our country. That’s, in my opinion, a bigger danger than China or Russia. You have it from the outside and you have it from within. From within is a bigger danger to our country, and it’s from the left, not from the right. But Rick Scott’s here, and he said, You can’t go after political persecutions. This is ashamed. This should not be happening in our country. Senator Ted Cruz put out a very strong statement about attacking Donald Trump and the American voter. It’s an attack on both. This is purely and simply election interference. There is no case. So that’s the way it is. But here we sit after two and a half weeks, and I think you’ll see some very revealing things today.

I want to thank my lawyers. They’ve done a very good job, and I’d rather thank them after it’s over as opposed to now because we don’t want them to get carried away. There’s no case. It should have never been brought. Alvin Bragg didn’t want to bring it. Cy Vance didn’t want to bring it, and he didn’t. He left, he didn’t bring it. Everybody’s looked at it. Southern district didn’t bring it. Federal elections didn’t bring it. It’s also a federal case, not a state case, which they’re not allowed to do, but these are minor details. I I just want to thank you for being here, and we’ll see you later in the afternoon. Thank you very much. What did you think of the story Daniels that’s coming in? How does the money care about the testimony?

Are you politicizing this trial? All right. That is former President Trump. Right before court, he usually does make comments. He made two basic comments. First of all, he started with the news of the day from the Biden announcement last night during the CNN interview that basically, Israel might be on their own when it comes to needing weapons. The President here, President Trump, made a point of saying that if you’re Jewish in America and you voted for Biden, you must be disappointed. He actually said, You should feel ashamed of yourself. But I think what his point was is that Biden is a that Biden is abandoning Israel in its time of need.

Peter Sweden- IT’S HAPPENING: Britain REFUSES to Sign WHO Pandemic Treaty

This is big news for freedom and sovereignty.

I recently reported on how in the latest draft of the WHO pandemic treaty, it was being watered down.

Now it is being reported that Britain is REFUSING to sign on to the World Health Organisation’s pandemic treaty and that they will not sign any form of the treaty that undermines Britain’s sovereignty.

That is very good news.

However, the reason they are against the treaty is because countries will be obliged to give away 20% of pandemic related health products. In other words, things such as vaccines, medicines and protection equipment like face masks.

In other words, it is basically a form of Global Communism.

Because that is what it is. The WHO is a bunch of unelected elites that want to control your life.

Did you know that Dr. Tedros, the leader of the WHO actually worked for a Communist junta in the regime of a Marxist dictator in Ethiopia.

The now WHO leader also joined the TPLF party back in the day which began as a Communist party.

So the leader of the WHO has a Communist background, and they are here telling people how they should life their lives?

Rich countries will be forced to give away medicine and equipment and give it to the WHO.

So what about the other parts in the treaty, like the fact that the WHO could come with “recommendations” to countries to implement lockdowns or vaccination? That was fine, but giving away medicine and vaccines to the WHO, that was a line too far?!

But it is a good thing that a major country now will be refusing to sign the treaty in its current form.

Britain has said they will require that any pandemic treaty will have to respect national sovereignty.

Could this be the beginning of the WHO pandemic treaty failing?

How many other countries could join in rejecting this, following in Britain’s footsteps?

This is a massive development and I will be keeping an eye on what happens next. Make sure to stay subscribed and you will get my updates as it happens!

“Scarf Lady” Dr. Deborah Birx Now Says Thousands of Americans Could Be Vaccine Injured by the COVID Shot (VIDEO)

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 15:30

Dr. Deborah Birx, the former White House coronavirus response coordinator who destroyed the country along with Dr. Anthony Fauci, suggested that thousands of Americans could be suffering from vaccine-related injuries due to the experimental COVID-19 shots.

Cuomo opened the discussion with Birx by addressing AstraZeneca’s withdrawal of its COVID-19 vaccine from the U.S. market.

“Doc, AstraZeneca made a headline today, pulling the vaccine. They say it’s because the demand curve isn’t there anymore. Others suggest it’s due to the inferiority of their product. What’s your take?”

“They were very effective for what they were supposed to be used for, which was preventing severe disease and hospitalization or deaths. That’s what the vaccines were studied to do in this country, and that’s what they did,” Birx answered.

This is a blatant lie. The COVID-19 vaccines were initially presented to the public as a way to provide immunity and stop the spread of the virus. However, as vaccinated individuals continued to contract COVID-19, it became apparent that the vaccines weren’t producing immunity as expected.

In September 2021, almost a year after Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) approval, the CDC altered its definition of vaccines and vaccination.

At the time the Covid-19 vaccines were developed and studied, the definition of vaccines was clear. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a vaccine was defined as “a product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease.” Vaccination was defined as “the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.”

Rather than admit the Covid vaccine is not working as advertised, CDC took a page out of Orwell’s 1984 and opted for new spin language.

The new definition of a vaccine is “a preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases.”

Note the subtle but important change. Instead of “PRODUCING IMMUNITY” the new definition moves the goal posts and states that their pseudo vaccine “STIMULATES THE BODY’S IMMUNE RESPONSE.”

When Cuomo questioned whether there was reluctance to acknowledge vaccine injuries due to fear of damaging public trust, Birx responded, “That’s why we need all the people to come forward that have had reactions because I’m not sure all of them have been reported. Do I think it’s millions? No. Could it be thousands? Yes.”

“You and I both remember what happened during HIV. Hiv had a lot of misinformation, a lot of confusion, and it’s like we didn’t learn from that,” Birx added.

Dr. Birx seems to overlook the actions of her colleague, Dr. Anthony Fauci, during the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.

At that time, Dr. Fauci made public claims that suggested children could contract AIDS through casual contact, a statement that significantly heightened public fear and stigma towards the gay community and those suffering from the disease. Moreover, Dr. Fauci has been accused of withholding effective treatments from AIDS patients as thousands died, focusing instead on the pursuit of a vaccine that never materialized.

New Info: Authorities Knew Testing of East Palestine Air was Insufficient But Did it Anyway (VIDEO)

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 15:15

The Biden Administration, along with the media, seems to have forgotten about East Palestine and the people there. More than a year after the Norfolk Southern train derailment, new information about the government and the railroad’s failed response to the environmental disaster continues to be revealed.

!function(r,u,m,b,l,e){r._Rumble=b,r[b]||(r[b]=function(){(r[b]._=r[b]._||[]).push(arguments);if(r[b]._.length==1){l=u.createElement(m),e=u.getElementsByTagName(m)[0],l.async=1,l.src="https://rumble.com/embedJS/uwuwcz"+(arguments[1].video?'.'+arguments[1].video:'')+"/?url="+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+"&args="+encodeURIComponent(JSON.stringify([].slice.apply(arguments))),e.parentNode.insertBefore(l,e)}})}(window, document, "script", "Rumble");

The latest revelation is that the hand-held devices used to test the air in East Palestine homes could not detect the dangerous chemical Butyl Acrylate. Making matters worse, investigators now insist, the responders knew the units could not test for Butyl Acrylate, but went ahead with the testing anyone without informing the home owners. When responders finally updated the units to detect the dangerous chemical, they never went back and tested the previous homes air.

Now, even with word of a 600 Million dollar settlement, the people of East Palestine still deserve our attention.

Pfizer to Settle 10K Lawsuits Over Drug Linked to Cancer, Costing Company Millions

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 15:00

Big Pharma giant Pfizer confirmed on Wednesday that it will settle more than 10,000 lawsuits over allegations that the company failed to warn people about possible cancer risks caused by their Zantac product.

Zantac is the company’s once-popular anti-heartburn medication featured in a multitude of television commercials, many of which featured an animated fireman character.

But in 2020, the Food and Drug Administration warned that Zantac and its generic version, called ranitidine, should be pulled from the shelves after a cancer-causing substance called NDMA was discovered as a contaminant linked to the medication.

Now, the company has agreed to settle the thousands of cases filed in state courts all across the nation over the substance, according to Bloomberg News.

Terms of the Pfizer settlements have not been disclosed.

“Pfizer has explored and will continue to explore opportunistic settlements of certain cases if appropriate, and has settled certain cases,” the company said in a statement.

Pfizer and other companies began developing the generic version of ranitidine in 1997 once Glaxo’s patent for the ingredient expired, according to the New York Post.

“The company has not sold a Zantac product in more than 15 years and did so only for a limited period of time,” the statement from Pfizer added.

After the FDA made its recommendation to pull the product, thousands of lawsuits were filed against pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer, GSK, Sanofi and Boehringer Ingelheim.

Sanofi already settled about 4,000 lawsuits last month.

Bloomberg reported that Sanofi will pay $100 million in its settlement, marking an average of $25,000 for each plaintiff.

But Sanofi still faces more than 20,000 lawsuits in the state of Delaware.

Indeed, there are up to 70,000 cases in Delaware courts against Sanofi and the other Big Pharma companies.

“Sanofi is settling these cases, not because we believe the claims have any merit, but rather to avoid the expense and ongoing distraction of the litigation,” the company said in a statement.

Like Sanofi, GSK has settled some of the suits leveled against the firm.

According to the Daily Mail, NDMA is a common byproduct of many industrial processes, including the making of rocket fuel.

“NDMA is a ‘‘forever chemical,’ meaning that it doesn’t degrade, or break down, naturally in our bodies and is believed to cause DNA damage,” the outlet reported.

MSNBC Host Lawrence O’Donnell Compares Porn Actress Stormy Daniels to a “Modest Nun” (Video)

Lawrence O’Donnell

Fresh off being mocked by Donald Trump on social media, MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell launched into a creepy description of Stormy Daniels after her Tuesday appearance on the stand and compared the porn actress to a  “modest nun.”

On ‘The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell Highlights,’ O’Donnell couldn’t hide the ick.

In the hushed voice of a romance novel narrator, O’Donnell uttered breathlessly,  “Well, the excitement and anticipation in the room hit a new high. At 10:32 am, she entered wearing all black as if on her way to a funeral. The loose-fitting plain black clothing draping from her shoulders to her toes suggested the modesty of a nun,” he said, referring to Daniels.

“The makeup was minimal, the way she and the other moms in her neighborhood might look when shopping at the local grocery store.”

“The long blonde hair held up with a clip at the back of her head the way it might be in a utilitarian way while she was doing dishes or checking one of the Horseshoes on her horse she later spoke of so proudly.”

“When she walked by him, her face had the same expressionless somber look that all the jurors always have when they walk by him. Looking at the floor she didn’t look at him,” he added.

Watch (if you can stomach it):

Stormy Daniels takes the stand again, today …

Ohio State Graduates Suffer Through ‘The Worst Commencement Address in the History of Commencement Addresses’

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 14:30
Chris Pan's May 5 commencement address was dubbed by at least one social media observer "The worst commencement address in the history of commencement addresses."

Chris Pan's May 5 commencement address was dubbed by at least one social media observer "The worst commencement address in the history of commencement addresses."

Having been a university professor, I’ve been to a lot of commencement ceremonies.

With our campus in a poor, semi-rural area, it was especially moving to see students who were not only the first in their family to get a college degree, but the first to have even graduated from high school.

Sometimes it was boring, but it never got old. It was routine for me, but for some graduates and their families, it was an event of a lifetime.

Which makes what happened with the speaker at The Ohio State University’s recent spring commencement especially grievous.

You see, Chris Pan thought it was all about only him. Perhaps he hoped to promote himself as a professional speaker or guru.

Worse, Pan wrote his speech while high on the psychedelic drug ayahuasca, according to The Columbus Dispatch. He reportedly said he also sought help from ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence.

It showed.

Beginning the university’s commencement address, Pan — an OSU graduate and Harvard MBA who worked for PepsiCo and Facebook before launching a jewelry business — noted the usual things about hard work, late-night studying, achievement and such.

He led students in applauding the support of their families in their accomplishments.

I’ve heard all this before — many times. It’s standard commencement fare, but meaningful for those graduating and their loved ones.

But then the crowd at Ohio State — and the rest of us via X — heard things that were novel.

No, not novel. Bizarre. And completely inappropriate.

The worst commencement address in the history of commencement addresses.

— Kevin McMahon (@Kevin__McMahon) May 7, 2024

Pan called on the crowd to stand and join with him in a song, complete with prepared lyrics projected on a screen.

And hand motions. Lots of hand motions. And breathing exercises — got to have breathing exercises at graduation.

Having, he said, properly gotten everyone in the right state of mind, Pan then gave the old parable about blind men perceiving different aspects of an elephant (trunk as a snake, side as a wall, tail as rope).

No problem with that to make a point.

Then Pan said (and imagine the uproar if he did this in a Christian context) “My goal today is to share new perspectives that will lead you to financial, emotional and spiritual freedom.”

He then talked about money and government policies. In promoting Bitcoin, he called on university President Walter Carter to be his assistant, and did a magic trick, changing quarters into Bitcoin.

Ba-da-BOOM.

Pan explained his self-therapy on emotional health through singing, and talked of spiritual aspects of making one’s soul grow.

As music began to play, he led the crowd in a meditation session/TED talk about a person they might admire and how one can change one’s life.

He then told the crowd he would make a free bracelet from his company available to each of them “as an apology for listening to me talk about Bitcoin,”) the Dispatch reported.

Pan finally moved to what might be considered a traditional commencement speech, with admonitions on learning forgiveness, compassion, resilience and tolerance.

He hearkened back to the elephant parable to talk about how tolerance allows people to hold multiple perspectives, especially in gatherings among those of different cultures, and how inner peace results in world peace.

Usual commencement topics.

But then, back to the music (Pan drank from a coffee cup with the price tag still on it), more on breathing, and an encouragement to learn from others with different perspectives.

Overall, Pan provided some appropriate statements about perspective and harmony.

Despite Pan’s talents and creativity, there are some ways of presenting material that don’t fit at something like commencement. Especially if they come from being high and from using artificial intelligence.

Earlier versions of his speech posted online talked of the current conflict in the Middle East and called for him to remove his shirt. Thankfully, he did neither.

And perhaps Pan’s motive for his little production was contained in his statement that he would be willing to be your teaching assistant for life.

Followed, of course, by a slide of his contact information and website.

Meaning, it seems like Pan’s little show was really about him.

And of it, Kevin McMahon of Townhall posted on X: “The worst commencement address in the history of commencement addresses.”

QUIET PART OUT LOUD? MSNBC Hosts Admit Trump Lawfare Campaign Isn’t Working, Election Depends on What ‘Crazy Event Will Happen’ (VIDEO)

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 14:15

Did the propagandists over at MSNBC just say the quiet part out loud?

During Thursday morning’s Way Too Early, hosts Jonathan Lemire and Elise Jordan held a discussion with in-house commentator Mike Barnicle about the failure of the lawfare campaign against Donald Trump. Jordan responded by predicting a “crazy event” that could “shape” the election one way or the other.

Here is a transcript of the exchange:

BARNICLE: Donald Trump is a phenomenon that is going away,” said Barnicle. “And I am wondering when the Democratic Party is going to figure out, you can make fun of him, you can talk about him being on trial and everything like that, he’s not going away. None of this seems to be damaging him with the core of his support.”

JORDAN: No, and you look Wisconsin and that is just absolutely ground zero for probably the state of the three most important states where this election is going to be decided,” she argued.

And the recent polling is so close that is just shows how this election is going to be such a nailbiter and really subject to what crazy event is going to happen and ultimately shape it in one direction or the other over the next months.

Watch the clip below:

While such a “crazy event” could possibly benefit Donald Trump, such a possibility seems unlikely. During the 2020 election cycle, the coming together of several “crazy events” including the exaggerated COVID pandemic gave the Democratic Party an excuse to carry out election fraud through the widespread use of mail-in ballots.

Quite what such an event would like in 2024 remains an open discussion. Yet with conflicts raging around the world and the constant threat of another pandemic, there is plenty of opportunity for the Democratic elite to once again “shape” the election one way or the other.

Barron Trump to Make His Political Debut, Will Serve as Florida Delegate at RNC

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 14:00

Donald Trump’s youngest son Barron will make his political debut at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in July at the mere age of 18.

According to a Trump campaign spokesperson, Barron is “very interested” in American politics and will serve as a delegate for Florida at the convention set to take place in Milwaukee.

Politico reported:

Barron Trump hasn’t graduated high school yet. But he’s already headed into the political big leagues. The Republican Party of Florida on Wednesday night picked the 18-year-old youngest son of former President Donald Trump as one of the state’s at-large delegates to the Republican National Convention, per a copy of the results viewed by POLITICO.

The state party also selected other Trump children as delegates, including Eric Trump as its delegation chair — meaning he’ll place his father’s name in for the nomination — and Donald Trump Jr. and Tiffany Boulos, formerly Trump, and her husband Michael Boulos as other at-large delegates.

The revelation led to interest and speculation across social media.

Trump Blasts Biden for Threatening Arms Embargo Against Israel If It Invades Rafah to Finish Off Hamas in Gaza

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 13:45

President Trump blasted Joe Biden in a Truth Social post early Thursday after Biden threatened to withhold offensive weapons (bombs and artillery shells) to Israel over Israel’s plans to invade the southern Gaza city of Rafah to finish off Hamas in the terror group’s last stronghold. Biden is opposed to the military incursion by Israel because he says Palestinian civilians will be killed. Biden also confirmed that he has withheld a shipment of 2,000 lb. bombs to Israel.

Biden made his threat in an interview Wednesday with CNN’s Erin Burnett, “I’ve made it clear that if they go into Rafah, I’m not supplying the weapons that have been used historically been used to deal with Rafah, to deal with the cities…it’s just wrong. We’re not going to supply the weapons and artillery shells”. @potus tells me”

Biden also said, “I’ve made it clear to Bibi and the war cabinet: They’re not going to get our support, if in fact they go on these population centers.”

Trump posted in response, “Crooked Joe Biden, whether he knows it or not, just said he will withhold weapons from Israel as they fight to eradicate Hamas Terrorists in Gaza. Hamas murdered thousands of innocent civilians, including babies, and are still holding Americans hostage, if the hostages are still alive. Yet Crooked Joe is taking the side of these terrorists, just like he has sided with the Radical Mobs taking over our college campuses, because his donors are funding them. Biden is weak, corrupt, and leading the world straight into World War III. Remember – this war in Israel, just like the war in Ukraine, would have NEVER started if I was in the White House. But very soon, we will be back, and once again demanding PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH!”

Biden and his national security team have been micro-managing Israel’s response to the October 7 attack by Hamas, forcing Israel to change tactics, relax embargoes and facilitate truckloads of humanitarian aid for Palestinians in Gaza that invariably gets stolen by Hamas. As the war enters its seventh month, Biden has become more concerned with losing support from the pro-Hamas wing of the Democratic Party than in freeing American hostages held by Hamas since October 7, or in ensuring an Israeli victory.

Later Wednesday, a “senior administration official” spoke to Jewish Insider about Biden’s threat, “”A senior Biden administration official told JI after Biden’s interview that withholding the arms shipments does not mean Biden’s support for Israel’s security is no longer “ironclad.” Instead, the official argued that there is a distinction between the U.S. giving Israel access to defensive weapons versus offensive weapons — and that the bombs the U.S. is withholding are not needed for defensive purposes.” The Biden adviser: “It’s ironclad to Israel’s security, right, like, I mean, they need Iron Dome defense systems. You can argue that they don’t need a 2,000-pound unguided munition in order to defend themselves. He is drawing a distinction in the interview between defensive weapons, which he will always support, and some types of offensive weapons, for instance, the 500-pound, 1,000-pound unguided munitions that Israel would use in a Rafah operation if they decided to move forward with that.””

Biden Regime Steps Up Persecution of J6 Protesters Ahead of Trump’s Return, Over 1,400 Arrested and Counting and Five Suicides So Far

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 13:30

The Biden regime is stepping up its relentless campaign of persecution against those who attended the January 6th protests, arresting people at double the rate they have over the past three years.

The Epoch Times reports that according to the Department of Justice’s monthly update, 1424 people have been arrested in connection with their attendance on that day:

Nearly 1,425 people have been arrested on Jan. 6 charges, with 2024 arrests running at almost double the rate from 2023 and 2022, a U.S. Department of Justice report shows. Through close of business on May 3, the FBI has arrested 1,424 suspects in the 40 months since the breach and violence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, the DOJ reported in its monthly update.

That includes 159 people who were arrested during the first four months of 2024, nearly double the 83 arrested during the same period in 2023 and the 85 arrested in the same period in 2022, DOJ records show. The FBI has made 391 Jan. 6 arrests since May 2023 and 614 arrests since May 2022, according to DOJ data.

Such an acceleration of arrests are a clear sign Biden regime’s determination to arrest and convict as many people as possible before the end of the year, knowing that if Donald Trump returns to the White House those investigations will be halted and pardons will be issued to some or all of those involved.

Last month, the leftist media site RawStory ran a piece warning that “time is running out” to arrest all the necessary people before the end of the year. The outlet spoke with so-called “sedition hunters” who have helped the FBI identify and persecute as many people as possible.

“There’s a 50-50 chance that if you went to J6 and committed a crime, you’re not going to get arrested,” one sedition hunter was quoted at saying.

Trump, meanwhile, recently said that pardoning the January 6th prisoners will be one of his first acts upon taking office.

Let’s hope and pray Trump returns to office before the Biden regime drives another J6 protester to suicide.

ALL HE DOES IS LIE: Biden Claims Inflation Was 9 Percent When He Took Office (It Was 1.4 Percent)

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 13:15

It is sometimes hard to tell whether Joe Biden is lying or simply demented, but either way he is spreading false information to protect his terrible economic record.

In an interview on CNN, Biden claimed that inflation was running at nine per cent when he seized office in January 2021:

No president had the run we’ve had in terms of creating jobs and bringing down inflation. It was 9 per cent when I came into office, 9 percent. But it — look, people have a right to be concerned, ordinary people. The idea that you bounce a check and you get a $30 fee for bouncing the check, I changed that, you can’t charge more than 8 bucks for that or your credit card, your late payment, $35. There’s corporate greed going on out there, and it’s got to be dealt with.

The combination of the inflation, the cost of inflation, all those things, that’s really worrisome to people, with good reason. That’s why I’m working very hard to bring the cost of rentals down, to increase the number of homes that are available.

CNN: “Grocery prices are up 30%+ … that’s a real day-to-day pain that people feel…”

BIDEN: “They have the money to spend!”

Then he repeats the debunked lie about Snickers bars and “corporate greed.” pic.twitter.com/3qJDyK1bvy

— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) May 8, 2024

According to official data from the Consumer Price Index, the actual figure was 1.4 percent.

At another stage in the interview, Biden was confronted with by reporter Erin Burnett the fact that voters trust Trump far more than him when it comes to the economy:

BURNETT: It’s also true, Mr. President that voters, by a wide margin, trust Trump more on the economy. They say that in polls. The cost of buying a home in the United States is double – if you look at what it was, the monthly costs before the pandemic.Real income, when you account for inflation is actually down since you took office.

Economic growth last week, far short of expectations. Consumer confidence, maybe no surprise, is near a two-year a low. With less than 6 months until Election Day, are you worried that you are running out of time to turn that around?

BIDEN: “We already turned it around! The polling data has been wrong all along!”

As reported last month by The Gateway Pundit, Biden’s economic plan is far worse than he likes to portray:

The White House and mainstream media can spin the unemployment numbers any way they want, but spin doesn’t change the reality; things are bad. The official unemployment rate is 3.8%, up from 3.5% last year. Meanwhile, under Biden, as much as 25% of the jobs created are government jobs. That is at least double what it should be for a free-market, capitalist country. Despite this boom in taxpayer-funded government job creation, employment fell again last month by 50,000 jobs. This year, about 1.8 million full-time jobs have disappeared.

The stakes in November could not be higher.

EXCLUSIVE: James Ray Epps Breaks Federal Law Lying To FBI Agents, Again, In Never Before Released Leaked Audio: ‘You Are The Boss’ [PART 3]

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 13:00

The Gateway Pundit has obtained more leaked audio of James Ray Epps’ providing materially false statements during an abnormally friendly interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigations about his role in the Capitol riot, a crime punishable by up to eight years in prison.

Joined by his attorney John Blischak, a former FBI agent, and his wife Robyn Epps during a voluntary March 3, 2021 interview, Epps assured the feds while laughing and cracking jokes that he only traveled from Arizona to Washington, DC to protect his son James Ray Epps Jry and “try to deescalate” a “raging” crowd amid a terrorist attack he suspected would transpire involving a bomb.  

As TGP reported, Epps also lied to the FBI on Jan. 8 2021, in an urgent call asking the bureau to remove his picture from the Most Wanted List, a request the government granted in July 2021. On the 8th, Epps insisted at least fourteen times that he only traveled to DC to “Try to calm them down.”

Conspicuously, in thousands of hours of January 6 footage, Epps is never seen with his son.

Despite evidence proving Epps only sought to encourage people to break into the building, he stuck to his alibi in the second leaked encounter with the bureau.

Lying is generally not a crime, but it depends on who you’re speaking to. Under 18 U.S.C. § 1001, making false statements to a government agent is a felony, especially when it’s related to “domestic terrorism.”

Continuing to violate federal law during the interview with FBI in addition to ostensibly and admittedly being a ring leader who “orchestrated” the Capitol riot, the most demonstrable lies he told the federal agency involved his attempts to implicate other demonstrators criminally.

Epps claimed Baked Alaska, who served 60 days in prison for protesting at the Capitol, was to blame for inciting a ruckus against police at BLM Plaza. But for at least an hour on camera, Epps was one of the main culprits sowing contention among young demonstrators.

“My son and his friend were walking around and they found a Trump group and they were challenged. And he called me and he was quite concerned — some of them that were trying to antagonize the police department,” Epps said describing the the night before the riot. “I tried to talk these guys out of it — I tried to talk them off the edge.

“I don’t think they were Trump supporters. They were there to antagonize,” he continued. “They were raging and I was trying to talk him down. I was trying to de-escalate it for the most part.”

Meanwhile, in footage captured by Gionet and John Jayden X Sullivan, who was sentenced to 6 years in prison for protesting in the building, Epps is seen, according to the government’s standard new standards of law, conspiring sedition.

“Tomorrow, I don’t even like to say it because I’ll be arrested — “I’ll say it! “We need to go in…to the Capitol!” he screamed at fed-up demonstrators.

 “Guys! Guys! Guys! I’m going to put it out there and I’m probably going to go to jail for it, okay? Tomorrow, we need to go into the Capitol! In… to the Capitol!” he continued in rhetoric he equates with “Trying to calm them down.”

Demonstrators have never before or after Jan. 6, 2021, been charged 18 U.S. Code § 1512 for assembling in the Capitol building, a crime punishable by up to 20 years in prison, raising more suspicions around whether the alleged federal provocateur engaged in a mission to entrap demonstrators.

Caught off guard when Agent Sims revealed he had footage tracking his whereabouts, Epps diverts attention away from being caught in a lie about “de-escalating” the crowd by lashing out at Gionet with false claims about the YouTuber antagonizing police “right in their face.”

“Are you aware of the videos?” Sims pressed. “I think Baked Alaska was one of the popular ones.”

“That guy was one of the instigators. I call him a YouTube jockey — they go out and try to instigate this stuff. And they try to bring other people in on it, trying to get them going and they film it. And they get famous because — you know he’s a bum. I didn’t know he was filming,” Epps admitted. “He was right in their face. And I kept trying to tell him, ‘Hey, that’s not what it’s about.'”

Nowhere in Baked Alaska’s five-hour livestream is he seen inciting violence against cops or aggressively confronting police officers.

WATCH: 

 

While James Ray Epps Jr. has been identified holding a barricade near the tunnel where police fatally beat Roseanne Boyland, the DOJ has yet to press charges against him.

Epps also repeatedly called for the arrest of Ryan Samsel, a J6 political hostage who has been repeatedly tortured while incarcerated in pretrial detention for 40 months after Epps grabbed him and whispered in his ear. 

“I was trying to find common ground with this guy and trying to talk him down. It blew up in my face. I didn’t know who he was from Adam, I know who he is now. He’s a jerk. Well, he’s a fugitive and was a fugitive,” Epps bemoaned before breaking out in laughter.

“He’s been caught,” Agent Sims assured.

Approximately 200 protesters pushed on the light-weight bike racks surrounding the Capitol. But Epps pointed the finger at Samsel. He then lied about attempting to help Officer Caroline Edwards from the ground when the crowd knocked her over.

“He was trying to rip the barricade down and then they started doing this back and forth,” he said. “There was a lady officer that got on the ground — and the barricade  I don’t know how, it ended up on top of her. And I went down to start to help her up — the policeman came over with the club and so I backed off.”

Multiple angles of footage that Congress took years to release show Epps racing past Edwards toward the building immediately after the bike rack fell over., disregarding the injured cop entirely.

Samsel is the only protester during the so-called first breach of flimsy bike racks barricading the Capitol building to intervene to assist Edwards.

“Epps ran past her.” Samsel maintains, as he continues to endure torture and faces years in prison. “I shook a bike rack. I didn’t even go into the building. In fact, I was there stopping a kid from bleeding to death. And I picked up a cop and pulled her to safety.

“Why are guys like Ray Epps being treated perfectly fine when it’s clear they were only there to agitate.”

WATCH:

 

 

Samsel has been moved to 19 different correctional facilities 28 times since his arrest. He was unconstitutionally unindicted for 11 months while incarcerated.

After reviewing transcripts of his accusers’ discussions with the FBI while detained in the DC gulag, Samsel provided TGP analysis of Epps’ bizarre charade with the intelligence community.

Hours after Epps leaked audio began trending on social media, Samsel was dragged to solitary confinement in Metropolitan Detention Center Brooklyn, the same jail system where Epstein allegedly killed himself. He is currently barred from all communications in the jail currently under fire for serving inmates maggot-infested food.

Federal agents held Samsel at gunpoint on Jan. 29, 2021, aiming the lasers of AR15s aimed at his head while ransacking his home during his arrest.

“They didn’t treat me like that,” he admonished. “They warned me they would paint my wall red before I dropped to the floor.”

In contrast, the FBI agents, Epps, his lawyer Bilshckack, and his wife Robyn laugh and joke about Epps being “the boss.”

Matthew Graves, the prosecutor obsessed with punishing grandmothers who showed up that day, commemorated Jan. 6, 2024  announcing the DOJ will continue targeting anyone who was even near the Capitol that day.

The government has terrorized and arrested approximately 300 more people for protesting at the Capitol this year.

To date, 40 after the Jan. 6 Save America rally, 1,424 people have been charged related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol; 510 have been charged with “assault” or impeding officers; 355 have been charged with “obstruction.

The Justice Department has nearly a one hundred percent conviction rate. 820 guilty pleas; 255 defendants have pled guilty to felonies; 565 have pled to misdemeanors.

Of 1,424 January 6 defendants, 199 have been convicted after fighting the charges at trial; 884 defendants have been sentenced; 554 have been sentenced to prison.

JUSTICE: Texas Cop Fired For Attending J6 Protests Receives $400,000 Settlement For Wrongful Termination

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 12:45

A Texas deputy who was fired from her job for attending the January 6th protests will receive a whopping settlement after she sued the county for wrongful termination.

According to The Forth Worth Star-Telegram, former Bexar County Lt. Roxanne Mathai was a “passionate supporter” of Donald Trump and had traveled to Washington to attend the ‘Stop The Steal’ protests.

She uploaded photos of the event to social media as protesters entered the Capitol building, although she did not enter the building herself

After returning to San Antonio, Sheriff Javier Salazar launched an investigation into her conduct and eventually fired her from the role that she held for nine years. It later emerged that he had campaigned for Joe Biden during the 2020 presidential election.

Mathai responded by suing the county and Sheriff Salazar for wrongful termination, citing violations of her First and 14th Amendment rights. The case was settled this week and she will receive a hefty $400,000 in damages. 

“Commissioners Court on April 9 approved turning over the $100,000 deductible amount required under its policy to a private insurance carrier to take over the defense and resolution of the lawsuit and the insurer agreed to pay the remaining $400,000 settlement amount to Mathai to resolve the pending lawsuit,” a Bexar County spokesperson told McClatchy News.

Despite costing the counts hundreds of thousands of dollars, Sheriff Salazar insisted he had made the right call. “The termination in this case was done within policy and was upheld by an arbitrator,” he said in a statement. “The decision to issue a settlement was made outside the BCSO. There was no wrongdoing on the part of the administration, and I stand by our actions.”

Such a story is sadly a rare beacon of light in the fight for justice for January 6th protesters. On Wednesday, The Epoch Times confirmed suicide of defendant on the death of David Homol, 55, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound months after the Biden regime hit with him eight separate charges.

Four other defendants, Matthew Perna, Jord Meachum, Mark Aungst, and Chris Stanton have also taken their own lives. May they rest in peace.

President Trump Vows to End Hostility Toward Crypto, Embrace Blockchain Technology in the US (VIDEO)

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 12:30
Credit: collecttrumpcards.com

President Donald Trump announced plans to embrace blockchain technology and eliminate hostility toward cryptocurrency in the U.S.

Cryptocurrency, or crypto, is a digital currency that uses encryption algorithms to allow people to make online payments to each other. Cryptocurrencies are decentralized, meaning they don’t have a central authority like a bank or government to regulate or issue them. Instead, they use a decentralized system to record transactions and create new units.

The announcement was made at a private dinner event at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, where he hosted a gathering for buyers of his NFT trading cards.

For context, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are unique cryptographic tokens that exist on a blockchain and cannot be replicated. They can represent digital or real-world items like artwork, real estate, music, or digital content. NFTs can also represent individuals’ identities and property rights. 

Trump, taking a day off from court proceedings, welcomed his supporters and addressed private political meetings alongside the exclusive NFT buyers’ dinner.

The evening was an opportunity for the former president to showcase his support for cryptocurrency and reiterate his criticism of the current administration’s stance.

Yahoo News reported, “A source familiar with the planning shared that Trump’s day off from court will also include private political meetings. Axios was first to report Trump’s plans to have dinner with NFT buyers.”

The event prominently featured the latest series of Trump digital trading cards, called the “Mugshot Edition.” Each card comes with a unique feature—a swatch of the suit Trump wore during his booking mugshot in Fulton County, Georgia. Trump faces racketeering charges related to his alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election results in the state.

“Over the last three years, Trump has used naming rights agreements with Florida-based LLCs to personally profit off his name and likeness. Financial disclosure statements showed that Trump made at least a six-figure dollar amount from his previous ‘superhero’ NFT digital trading cards,” the Yahoo report added.

During the event, Trump boasted of his influence in reviving interest in NFTs. “I made NFTs hot again,” he told the enthusiastic crowd.

Trump announced his intention to end the current administration’s hostility toward cryptocurrency. Responding to crypto enthusiast Malcolm, who asked how he planned to keep crypto businesses in America, Trump answered,  “We’re going to end the hostility.”

Trump criticized the Biden regime’s approach and expressed his commitment to removing restrictions.

“They are against it. Biden doesn’t even know what it is. If you ask Biden, ‘Sir, are you for or against crypto?’ What’s that? Get me off the stage. He’s saying, ‘Get me off the stage.’ Now, he has no idea.”

“The Democrats are very much against it,” Trump added. “And I say this, a lot of people are very much for it, probably a lot of the people in this group, and I’m fine with it. I want to make sure it’s good and solid and everything else, but I’m good with it. If you like crypto in any form, and it comes in a lot of different forms, if you’re in favor of crypto, you better vote for Trump.”

Trump also confirmed that he is now accepting donations in cryptocurrency, solidifying his shift toward embracing the digital currency landscape.

Now, Bitcoin.com is reporting that a “second Trump term would be ‘broadly positive’ for crypto.”

More from Coindesk.com:

A Trump election victory could be positive for crypto as his administration would likely push for a more supportive regulatory environment, the report said.

The risk of U.S. fiscal dominance with the monetization of government debt by the Federal Reserve is growing, and such a scenario should be supportive for cryptocurrencies as investors seek out alternative assets, investment bank Standard Chartered said in a research report on Tuesday.

Donald Trump could also be a boon for cryptocurrencies. “We think that a second Trump administration would be broadly positive via a more supportive regulatory environment,” the report said. “In a scenario of U.S. fiscal dominance, we think bitcoin (BTC) would provide a good hedge against de-dollarization and declining confidence in the U.S. Treasury market,” analyst Geoff Kendrick wrote.

U.S. fiscal dominance would likely have three effects on the U.S Treasury curve: “a steeper nominal 2 year/10 year curve, a greater increase in breakevens than real yields, and an increase in term premium” Kendrick said, adding that the bitcoin price has a positive correlation with all three of these potential developments.

If Trump were to win the election a second administration could accelerate the withdrawal of foreign official U.S. Treasury buyers due to fiscal concerns, the bank said, noting that in his first term average annual net selling of U.S. government debt was $207 billion a year versus only $55 billion under Biden’s presidency.

Breaking: House Democrats Vote UNANIMOUSLY to Give Illegal Aliens Representation in Congress and the Electoral College

One of the many migrant caravans marching to the open US southern border.

Here we go… House Democrats on Wednesday night voted unanimously to give illegal aliens – including Joe Biden’s 11 million illegal border crossers – representation in Congress and the Electoral College.

Democrats continue to put Americans and American workers in line behind alien invaders.

The House vote was 206 to 202 with 22 representatives 11 Democrats and 11 Republicans abstaining from the vote.

Steven Miller reported: “House Dems just voted UNANIMOUSLY to give illegals representation in Congress AND the Electoral College. House Seats and Electoral College votes WILL BE added to areas with the most illegals (including all Biden illegals) unless Senate passes the bill. Invasion by design.”

The language of H.R.7109 is as follows: To require a citizenship question on the decennial census, to require reporting on certain census statistics, and to modify apportionment of Representatives to be based on United States citizens instead of all individuals.

Democrats in the Senate will not bring this to a vote thus giving illegals representation in Congress.

‘A Real-Life Hero’: Father Sacrifices His Life to Save Three Children

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 12:00
A cousin said "God, Family, friends and fishing were what matter[ed] most" to Benny Bowers.

A cousin said "God, Family, friends and fishing were what matter[ed] most" to Benny Bowers.

Most people have at least a vague notion of the virtue of self-sacrifice.

But considering how few people in the developed world face life-or-death situations on a daily basis, how many of us could truly embody that virtue if it came down to it?

How many people would be able to put aside their self-preservation instinct and give up their own life for the people they love?

One North Carolina father, when presented with this situation, was able to rise to that calling, sacrificing his own life when his children fell into a river.

According to local news outlet WGHP, Benny Bowers Jr., a native of Surrey County, North Carolina, was out fishing with his children on April 28 when three of his four sons fell into the Yadkin River.

WGHP reported that, although the family called 911 immediately, the strength of the current forced Bowers to make that fateful, split-second decision.

He jumped in, rescuing his struggling children, but Bowers himself never resurfaced.

Rescue crews quickly came on the scene, The Charlotte Observer noting that they searched the entire day with no success, suspending the search once it grew too dark.

They ended up finding his body around 11 a.m. on April 29, near the juncture of the Yadkin River and the Ararat River in Siloam, where he originally vanished.

Tragic as the loss of this loving father was, Bowers’ children had only glowing praise for the heroic actions of their father, who wen by the name Benji, according to the Observer.

His 10-year-old son, Benny Bowers III, told WGHP “He was a brave man. And if you wanted him to help, he would be there for you.”

Bowers’ sister, Angela Stewart, told WGHP about how much her brother loved the Lord, and Bowers’ son called his father “the greatest dad I could ever have, and he’s a hero. A real-life hero.”

Friends and family shared their own tributes on Facebook, with Bowers’ cousin, Jason Johnson, writing, “I’ve been thinking about all the things I could say about Benji Bowers. If I could put it all in one word it would be Love. To know him was to love him. Always the jokester. The life of the party. God, Family, friends and fishing were what matters most.”

And Bowers truly lived up to the praise of his son, his sister and his cousin.

While too many Christians in the secular culture of the West see their commitment to the Lord as more of a social thing, Bowers clearly took his commitment to God seriously, up to and including sacrificing himself for the sake of his children.

In doing so, Bowers personified the words of Christ, who said in John’s Gospel that “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”

Every child deserves a father like Bowers, who was devoted to God first, and then put his family before everything else.

Benny Bowers Jr. was, as his son said, a real-life hero, animated by the words of Christ and his love for the Lord.

Bowers had that “greater love,” to “lay down his life” for his children. If America had more fathers like him, maybe that would be enough to turn the nihilistic, atheistic culture of the West back to God.

Pro-Palestinian Protesters Attempt to Block Painter from Covering Up Their Graffiti – Then Find Out What Happens – MUST SEE VIDEO

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 04:15

Pro-Palestinian protesters were spray-painted by a contractor at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio early Tuesday morning as they stood in front of a campus Spirit Wall that had been hijacked by Hamas supporters who had painted it over with anti-Israel messages. The protesters, who wore clear plastic face shields, stood directly in front of the wall in an effort to prevent the contractors from doing their job. A pro-Hamas encampment at CWRU is now in its second week.

Video posted by the school’s Students for Justice in Palestine group shows one of the contractors spray-painting the protesters, with one covered in white paint. The group posted the video to Instagram with the message in nearly all caps, “AROUND 5 AM THIS MORNING, STUDENTS WERE SPRAYED WITH PAINT WHILE CONTRACTORS CALLED BY CWRU ATTEMPTED TO COVER THE SPIRIT WALL. THEY LATER CAME CLOSER TO NOON AND COVERED THE ENTIRE WALL WITH PAINT. THE STUDENTS FOLLOWED THE SPIRIT WALL POSTING POLICY, AND ADMIN STILL HAD A PROBLEM. The lengths this university goes to defend Zionist Genocidal interests is insane.”

Case Western Reserve University President Eric Kaler issued a statement Wednesday denouncing the spray-painting of the protesters:

An update on an overnight incident at the Spirit Wall
To the Case Western Reserve community:

Earlier today, I wrote to you noting that the university was investigating an incident in which an individual who was painting over protesters’ writings on the Spirit Wall hit student protesters with paint. I have reviewed video footage, which depicts students blocking the wall as a third-party contractor spray painted directly onto protesters as he attempted to finish painting the wall, and I am disturbed by what occurred.

Let me be clear: No students—or any individuals—should ever be treated this way, especially on a campus where our core values center on providing a safe, welcoming environment. This is not who we are as an institution, and I am deeply sorry this ever occurred.

The university will continue to fully investigate these actions and hold individuals responsible for this behavior, including the failure of our own officers to intervene.

Again, I want to reiterate my sincere regret for this incident. As with any violation of our codes of conduct, we will take action to hold them accountable.

Sincerely,

Eric W. Kaler
President

Kaler previously issued a statement criticizing the protesters for painting “threatening, intimidating and antisemitic” messages on campus walls.

Addressing intimidating speech on university property: May 7, 2024
To the Case Western Reserve community,

I fully support individuals’ rights to share their viewpoints in accordance with our freedom of expression policy. However, that policy—and the core values that define our university—have been continually violated over the past eight days, including yesterday afternoon when protesters at the non-sanctioned encampment on Kelvin Smith Library Oval painted an advocacy wall near Eldred Hall with language the university administration and many members of our community view as threatening, intimidating and antisemitic.

As I have repeatedly noted, constructive, meaningful exchanges should never involve harassment, incitement, or behavior that threatens and is intimidating to our community. I strongly condemn the language posted yesterday on the advocacy wall, and want to reiterate to our entire community that such language—no matter to whom it is directed—will not be tolerated on our campus.

After defacing the advocacy wall, later in the evening, the protesters painted the spirit wall near Thwing Center with language that was less threatening but still intimidating to some in our community. The university has painted over the advocacy wall and will complete painting over the spirit wall this morning. The university is investigating an incident in which one or more protesters blocking the spirit wall were hit by paint.

The students involved in yesterday’s advocacy wall painting and those who continue to break university policy by remaining in an unapproved encampment on private property will be held fully accountable for their actions through the conduct process. Any faculty and staff members who take part in activities that violate the freedom of expression policy—which this encampment does—also will be required to go through a conduct process. The actions of all participants, whether within or outside the CWRU community, may also be in violation of criminal or civil law.

I understand and appreciate the importance of advocating for a cause that is deeply personal and undeniably tragic, as the Israel-Hamas war and the resulting loss of lives are in Israel and Gaza. But advocacy for a cause is most persuasive when it goes back to those core values upon which Case Western Reserve operates, with responsibility, civility and ethical behavior among them. I urge the student protesters to remove the encampment and begin the student conduct process.

Sincerely,

Eric W. Kaler

Cleveland’s mayor and chief of police issued a joint statement, reported WOIO-TV:

Mayor Justin Bibb and Chief Annie Todd Respond to Recent Incidents on the CWRU Campus

In light of the recent video that surfaced from the CWRU campus, which displays individuals being painted over with spray paint, it is crucial that we express our stance unambiguously.

Cleveland is a city for everyone, and we must respect the thoughts, feelings, and voices of those who come from various backgrounds. These diverse perspectives are what makes us special, and ultimately stronger, as a city. Our community deserves venues where they have the ability to constitutionally-express their opinions openly without fear of criminal interference. We support 1st Amendment rights and implore CWRU leadership to consider this and think about how the decisions they make and the actions they take – especially against those who are abiding by the law – will influence some of the progress we have collectively made as a city. At the same time, we urge individuals to demonstrate peacefully.

We want to be clear in that we condemn all forms of violence and the Division of Police stands ready to offer support should that occur. Public safety has been and always will be our number one priority.

Mayor Bibb & Chief Todd

WOIO also reported a student protester named Raissa complaining about the incident:

“It was a pressurized paint gun spraying harmful chemicals with carcinogens and toxins directly with no concern for health or the well-being of an individual who is paying to be here,” said Raissa.

“We had some students talking to the police like how can they do this. The painters were like were following orders. The police said we’re following orders from higher administrative and I guess they didn’t think of the morality of what they were doing,” said Raissa.

Video of the encampment posted early Monday:

“I Have Never Failed!” – Unhinged Joe Biden in Dumpster Fire Interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett (VIDEO)

Thu, 05/09/2024 - 03:20

Joe Biden sat down for a one-on-one interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett to discuss his dumpster fire economy and 2024 strategy.

Biden thought he was going to have a softball interview with CNN but he completely crumbled when Erin Burnett fact-checked him to his face.

Burnett pointed out that the economy is the most important issue for voters.

“It’s also true, Mr. President that voters, by a wide margin, trust Trump more on the economy. They say that in polls,” Erin Burnett said.

She continued, “The cost of buying a home in the United States is double – if you look at what it was, the monthly costs before the pandemic.”

“Real income, when you account for inflation is actually down since you took office,” Burnett said. “Economic growth last week, far short of expectations.”

“Consumer confidence, maybe no surprise, is near a two-year a low. With less than 6 months until Election Day, are you worried that you are running out of time to turn that around?” Erin Burnett asked Biden.

Biden snapped and immediately rattled off his talking points. Of course, all he did was lie.

Erin Burnett asked Biden why people should believe he will create jobs.

“Why should people here believe that you will succeed at creating jobs where Trump failed?” Erin Burnett asked Biden.

Biden absurdly claimed Trump has “never succeeded” at creating jobs. Times were good under Trump. Unemployment was low, inflation was low, gas prices were low and mortgage rates were low.

“I’ve never failed! I’ve created over 15 million jobs!” Biden said referring to people going back to work after Democrats forcefully closed businesses during the Covid pandemic.

Biden hasn’t created a single job.

Bidenomics: Screw Americans at all costs.

Per the Center for Immigration Studies: All employment growth has gone to the foreign-born. 183,000 fewer U.S.-born Americans are working than in 2019, before Covid. Yet, the number of immigrants (legal and illegal) working is up 2.9 million over 2019.

“Comparing the fourth quarter of 2019 to the fourth quarter of 2023 shows 2.7 million more people working in the United States — 2.9 million more immigrants (legal and illegal) and 183,000 fewer U.S.-born Americans. Since the depths of the Covid Recession in 2020 employment has increased for both groups. But the number of U.S.-born workers has not made it back to the 2019 pre-Covid level. Equally important, the share of working-age, U.S.-born men without a bachelor’s not in the labor force deteriorated in the decades prior to 2019, and the rate in the fourth quarter of 2023 was lower still. These individuals do not show up as unemployed because they have not looked for a job in the four weeks prior to the survey. The long-term decline in the labor force participation rate of less-educated men is linked to serious social problems, from suicide and crime to drug overdoses and social isolation.” CIS reported.

“This analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies is based on the Current Population Survey (CPS), collected by the Census Bureau for the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We focus on the peak years of prior economic expansions (2000, 2006, and 2019) as well as 2023 because it is the most recent quarterly data available. Immigrants (legal and illegal together) in the CPS are often referred to as the “foreign-born” and include all persons who were not U.S. citizens at birth — primarily naturalized citizens, lawful permanent residents, long-term temporary visitors (e.g. guestworkers), and illegal immigrants.” CIS reported.

Last year it was reported month after month that foreign-born workers were taking all the jobs while native born-Americans lost their jobs.

1.2 million native-born Americans lost their jobs in August.

771,000 foreign-born workers replaced them.
