Kamala Harris Trashes Trump, Claims He will “Weaponize the Justice Department” If He Takes Back the White House Like Joe Biden Did (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/03/2024 - 02:40

Kamala Harris on Friday traveled to South Carolina for a campaign event on the eve of the state’s Democrat primaries.

The Democrats previously voted to remove Iowa as its first voting state and replaced it with South Carolina to protect “fifth place” Joe Biden.

Harris pandered to the crowd in South Carolina and mustered a bizarre accent as she promised the voters more freebies.

Kamala Harris also trashed Trump and claimed he will “weaponize the Justice Department” if he wins back the White House in 2024.

“Former President Trump has made clear time and time again, his fight is not for the people,” Harris said. “He fights for himself.”

Harris then claimed Trump openly talks about his intention to weaponize the Department of Justice.

Of course, this is precisely what Joe Biden is doing.

WATCH:

Kamala Harris made the same absurd claim in an interview with Katie Couric last week.

Harris told Katie Couric we will “lose this democracy” if we elect a president who would weaponize the Justice Department and “go after their political enemies.”

Joe Biden unleashed the might of the federal government to lock up his main political rival Donald Trump.

Biden’s DOJ appointed Special Counsel Jack Smith as a hired gun to go after Trump just one day after Trump announced his 2024 presidential bid in November 2022.

Jack Smith indicted Trump on more than 40 federal charges in two separate venues and is fiercely working to convict Trump before the 2024 election.

Elon Musk Weighs in on Biden Strategy: Get as Many Illegals into Country as Possible – Create Permanent Majority – A One-Party State

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/03/2024 - 02:20

Elon Musk weighed in on Joe Biden’s agenda.

News broke in January that Joe Biden will prioritize legal status for millions of illegal immigrants in the United States.

This comes after Joe Biden opened the borders and allowed over 10 million illegals from over a hundred countries to invade the United States. Republicans are still too afraid to impeach Biden for this criminal act.

The AP reported:

President-elect Joe Biden’s decision to immediately ask Congress to offer legal status to an estimated 11 million people in the country has surprised advocates given how the issue has long divided Democrats and Republicans, even within their own parties.

Biden will announce legislation his first day in office to provide a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants in the United States illegally, according to four people briefed on his plans.

X owner Elon Musk responded to this report on Friday night.

Elon Musk tweeted: Biden’s strategy is very simple:

1. Get as many illegals in the country as possible.

2. Legalize them to create a permanent majority – a one-party state.

That is why they are encouraging so much illegal immigration. Simple, yet effective.

No one is fooled by the lawless acts of the Democrat leaders.

A DIVIDED HOUSE: Ukraine’s Zelensky Warns the White House That He’ll Fire General Zaluzhny – Will the Infighting Be Over?

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/03/2024 - 02:00

It is written in the Gospel of Matthew that ‘a house divided cannot stand’ – not that the Nazi-friendly Ukrainian regime would care very much about that.

But the never-ending conflict between President Volodymyr Zelensky and Commander in Chief General Valery Zaluzhny is certainly worsening the already dire situation of the Kiev regime in the war against Russia.

The situation evolved from a simmer to a boil in the last few weeks, and now media outlets all over the world are predicting Zaluzhny will be fired at any moment by his foe Zelensky.

Not only that, but WaPo has come out with a report that states that Ukraine has already ‘informed the White House that President Volodymyr Zelensky has decided to fire his top military commander, Gen. Valery Zaluzhny’.

Read: Zelensky Versus Zaluzhny: The Infighting Worsens as the President Gives Orders Directly to Battlefield, Bypassing the General That Is Polling Much Higher Than Him

The paper rightfully notes that it would be ‘the most consequential personnel shake-up of the war’.

But we can also add that, just three months after the start of the war, Russian President Vladimir Putin changed his top troop commander, substituting Sergei Surovkin with Valery Gerasimov – so a change isn’t necessarily bad.

White House officials reportedly did not support or object to the decision.

Washington Post reported:

“Zelensky has yet to issue a formal decree announcing the ouster of Zaluzhny, and it is uncertain when that might happen. The advance notice to Washington, which has not been previously reported, reflects the influential role of the United States as Ukraine’s most powerful military and political backer.”

The White House had the opportunity to try to avoid this outcome, but chose not to do so.

Read: Ukrainian Commander in Chief Criticizes Presidential Firing of Mobilization Heads, as the Zelensky-Zaluzhny Feud Gets Out of Control

“The departure of Zaluzhny, one of the most popular figures in Ukrainian society, could affect troop morale and shake the confidence of Western donors as Ukraine’s military struggles to fend off advancing Russian forces. He and Zelensky have clashed over their divergent strategies for surmounting the battlefield setbacks as the war grinds into its third year.”

Zelensky may delay Zaluzhny’s firing, but it does appear imminent.

The President suspects that Zaluzhny has political ambitions, and disagree with the general’s request to mobilize about half a million new soldiers.

In a tense Monday meeting, he finally warned the Zaluzhny he’d be fired.

Read: Ukraine To Mobilize HALF A MILLION New Citizens for the War in Highly Unpopular Move – President Zelensky and General Zaluzhny Throw the ‘Hot Potato’ Blame to Each Other

“Zelensky pushed back on conscripting so many, in part because Ukraine lacks the money to pay them without significantly raising taxes for its citizens. Such aggressive conscription would also be politically unpopular.

‘The president does not believe that this mass mobilization of men between the ages of 18 to 27 is desirable or warranted at this point’, said a person close to Zelensky.

During the meeting, Zelensky told Zaluzhny he was being dismissed, said a senior Ukrainian official.”

Finding a replacement for Zaluzhny won’t be easy.

The replacements mentioned in all reports are Ukraine’s head of military intelligence, Lt. Gen. Kyrylo Budanov, a 38-year-old with a background in special forces, or Oleksandr Syrsky, the current ground forces commander.

Kamala Harris Affects Bizarre Accent as She Speaks at Campaign Rally in South Carolina (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/03/2024 - 01:40

Kamala Harris on Friday traveled to South Carolina for a campaign event on the eve of the state’s Democrat primaries.

Recall that the Democrats previously voted to remove Iowa as its first voting state and replaced it with South Carolina to protect Joe Biden.

Apparently, Iowa is too white.

Harris affected a bizarre accent as she spoke at a campaign event in Orangeburg, South Carolina on Friday.

Why does she always do this?

“In 2020, South Carolina said, we need to take on the issue of high-speed internet. For years I have spoken with leaders…about the urgent need for high-speed internet. In particular rural communities where students have had to go to the public library just to submit their homework on the Wi-Fi,” Harris said in a strange accent.

Harris told the rallygoers that Joe Biden is going to make sure they have high-speed internet.

WATCH:

Kamala Harris’ accent got even stronger as she spoke about historically black colleges and universities.

Her pandering was off the charts.

WATCH:

No matter how much Kamala Harris panders, black voters in South Carolina are turning on Joe Biden ahead of the Democrat primaries set for February 3.

“Biden just wants to cause more bills for everybody, and he’s got a lot of homeless people out here,” one black South Carolina voter told the media of Joe Biden losing support among blacks.

“It ain’t the Black community — it’s everybody’s community,” he said.

As TGP’s Kristinn Taylor reported, a poll released in December by Morning Consult shows Joe Biden losing support among black voters while President Trump is gaining support. Over the past year, Biden is down nine points, from 70 to 61 percent while Trump is up seven points, 15 to 22 percent

“We’re Broke with Biden – We Weren’t with Trump” – Black Man at Barbershop Tells MSNBC “A LOT” of His Friends are Voting TRUMP (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/03/2024 - 01:20

MSNBC hacks were left speechless during their latest report at a South Carolina barbershop.

One of the patrons told MSNBC “a lot” of his friends are voting for Trump.

But, wait! The fake news tells us the economy is strong and Joe Biden is great. Are they not being upfront with the American people?

MSNBC hack: There are some people in your orbit who are either voting for Donald Trump or considering it?

Young South Carolina voter: For sure. A lot of my friends are obviously my age, so we’re a little younger. We’ve only voted once for a president. And Trump is kind of all we know. And they’re kind of Trump and Biden, they’re like, well, we were broke with Biden. We weren’t with Trump. And that’s kind of the only thing that I’m hearing and over and over again, over and over again, is that, well, Trump, we had money. Well, okay.

That rallying cry will only get louder as the election draws near.

Judge Chutkan Formally Postpones Jack Smith’s DC Trial Amid Trump Immunity Arguments, Vacates Jury Questionnaire Process

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/03/2024 - 01:00

Judge Tanya Chutkan, the Obama appointee who is overseeing Jack Smith’s January 6 case against Trump in DC formally postponed the trial on Friday.

On Thursday it was reported Jack Smith’s DC case against Trump had been removed from the court calendar. The March 4, 2024 trial date, which was scheduled before Super Tuesday, was dropped from the calendar within the last week.

Judge Chutkan in an order Friday postponed the trial and told the prospective jurors who were asked to fill out a pre-trial questionnaire not to appear in court next week.

— Katie Phang (@KatiePhang) February 2, 2024

Chutkan was forced to postpone the March 4 trial as the DC Circuit Court of Appeals considers Trump’s immunity claims.

Trump’s lawyers argued that Trump is immune from federal prosecution for alleged ‘crimes’ committed while he served as US President.

“In 234 years of American history, no president ever faced criminal prosecution for his official acts. Until 19 days ago, no court had ever addressed whether immunity from such prosecution exists,” Trump’s lawyers wrote in last month’s filing, according to CBS News. “To this day, no appellate court has addressed it. The question stands among the most complex, intricate, and momentous issues that this Court will be called on to decide.”

Last month, John Sauer, a Missouri-based attorney for Trump, appeared before a three-judge panel for the DC Circuit Court of Appeals to argue Trump’s immunity claims in Jack Smith’s DC case.

The three-judge panel hearing oral arguments on immunity claims: Florence Pan (Biden appointee), Michelle Childs (Biden appointee), and Karen Henderson (George W. Bush appointee).

On January 9 a three-judge panel heard oral arguments and appeared skeptical of Trump’s immunity claims – one judge, a Biden appointee, asked attorney John Sauer if Trump would be subject to criminal prosecution if he ordered SEAL Team 6 to assassinate his political rivals.

“Could a president who ordered SEAL Team 6 to assassinate a political rival, and is not impeached, would he be subject to criminal prosecution?” Judge Florence Pan, a Biden appointee asked John Sauer.

John Sauer, former Solicitor General of Missouri and friend of The Gateway Pundit, replied, “If he were impeached and convicted first… my answer is qualified yes, there is a political process that would have to occur under the structure of our Constitution which would require impeachment and conviction by the Senate in these exceptional cases…”

If the DC Circuit Court of Appeals rules that Trump does not have presidential immunity, Trump will likely ask for an en banc hearing (a request for the court’s entire slate of 11 judges to make a decision).

Out of the 11 judges at the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, only four are conservatives so Trump will likely have to take the immunity fight to the US Supreme Court.

Meanwhile in Florida….

Judge Cannon, the Trump appointee who is overseeing Jack Smith’s classified documents case in Florida will hold a March 1 hearing to get a status update on the special counsel’s DC case.

Cannon suggested the May 20 trial date for the classified documents case will be postponed if the special counsel couldn’t resolve the Trump immunity argument in a timely manner.

Stay tuned!

Gateway: Beyond the Headlines 02/02/24 — UK Faces Tragic Loss Among Children Due to ‘Magic Juice’ Crisis; Biden’s Detroit Visit Met with Protests and Heavy Police Presence; Major Legal Developments Shake Up Political Sphere, and MORE

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/03/2024 - 00:40

 

Tonight is Friday, February 2 – and on this episode of Gateway: Beyond the Headlines…

A stunning new report shows that UK children are dying at an alarming rate after “magic juice” was introduced. What does this mean, and why is this happening? Ivory has the details.

Then, as Biden visits Detroit, police in riot gear arrive to greet pro-Hamas protestors. And according to several reports, the Trump election interference case in Washington DC has been removed from the court calendar – all while the verdict in the bogus New York civil fraud case has been delayed. Plus, Oregon State Senator joins Ivory to discuss how an Oregon court banned ten Republicans from reelection, and a leftist lawfare group was forced to layoff after losing numerous lawfare cases.

Then, Gateway Pundit Contributor Jordan Conradson joins the show as a White House insider accidentally spoke about “what they can’t say publicly” – Democrats need Kamala Harris because Joe Biden’s Mental Health is in decline.

Next, House Speaker Mike Johnson blasted Joe Biden in his first Floor Speech, and releases a multitude of documents citing 64 cases of Biden’s efforts to weaken border security and promote illegal immigration. And Ted Harvey, Candidate for Colorado’s 4th Congressional District has the latest on Democrats’ vote against deporting illegals who drive drunk or commit fraud. And despite the Republican effort to impeach DHS Secretary Alejando Mayorcas, there’s one Republican who is actually supporting him. Who is it? We’ve got more.

Finally, a relative of one of three Kansas City Chiefs fans was found dead in early January outside of a friend’s home. Ivory has the details – and the shocking questions that still remain.

That, and more, on tonight’s episode of Gateway: Beyond the Headlines.

Flashback: Ilhan Omar’s Father was Top Propaganda Official in Genocidal Somalian Barre Regime – Then He Changed His and Her Name and Entered US Illegally

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/03/2024 - 00:20

Do Americans know the story on how Ilhan Omar made it into the United States?  In July 2019 we reported on Omar’s father Nur Said. 

Here is what we reported:
David Steinberg published an extensive report on the alleged crimes and history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and the “Omar” family.

In his report, David found that the Omar family changed their name in order to enter the United States.

Via PowerLineBlog:

In 1995, Ilhan entered the United States as a fraudulent member of the “Omar” family.

That is not her family. The Omar family is a second, unrelated family which was being granted asylum by the United States. The Omars allowed Ilhan, her genetic sister Sahra, and her genetic father Nur Said to use false names to apply for asylum as members of the Omar family.

Ilhan’s genetic family split up at this time. The above three received asylum in the United States, while Ilhan’s three other siblings — using their real names — managed to get asylum in the United Kingdom.

Ilhan Abdullahi Omar’s name, before applying for asylum, was Ilhan Nur Said Elmi.

Her father’s name before applying for asylum was Nur Said Elmi Mohamed. Her sister Sahra Noor’s name before applying for asylum was Sahra Nur Said Elmi. Her three siblings who were granted asylum by the United Kingdom are Leila Nur Said Elmi, Mohamed Nur Said Elmi, and Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.

Power Line also included this graphic on the Omar Elmi family.

This ties in to The Gateway Pundit’s previous report by Joe Hoft on Ilhan Omar’s father.

Far Left Communist Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar’s father and other Somalian war crimes perpetrators are currently living illegally in the United States.

The Gateway Pundit obtained information that is damning for Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

Omar’s father, Nur Omar Mohamed (aka Nur Said Elmi Mohamed), is connected to the former dictator in Somalia, Said Barre.  Nur and other former Barre accomplices are living in the US illegally.

Omar’s father Mohamed, is living in the US.  He and other Somalians like Yusuf Abdi Ali, who killed thousands for Barre, escaped to the West and were not vetted properly before entering the country.  Barre was a dictator and was connected to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro as well as other dictators around the globe.

Ali is a convicted war criminal who did the killing himself.  Ali has been located in the US working as security at Dulles International Airport and driving for Uber in 2019.  He reportedly lived at one time in Alexandria, Virginia.  Ali was a Colonel in the Somalian Army’s 5th Mechanized Brigade in 1987 and was a graduate of the Pentagon’s Program for Foreign Officers in 1986.  He’s also a war criminal in response to his actions in Somalia.

Nur, Representative Omar’s father, appears to have been a party propagandist under the dictator and was responsible for ‘ideological’ aspects of the Red-Green revolution.  (He worked for the Marxist/Stalinist regime under dictator Baare as a teacher of teachers.) This could have included providing the ideological/political justification for the massacres of the late eighties.

It is not a secret that Ilhan Omar’s father illegally entered the United States.

The Nur family was well connected in the country led by the Marxist regime.  Young Omar went to kindergarten at age four, their family lived in a secure compound in Mogadishu.  When the regime was overtaken, the family caught a plane to escape the country.  The average GDP per capita in Somalia was only $187 dollars in 2010 twenty years after they fled the country when the regime fell. Obviously, Nur’s family was a privileged family.

According to a 2016 article on Omar, when the Marxist regime was being overtaken the secure compound that the family lived in was under attack by 20 armed men, somehow the family escaped.  It is not clear how.  Either the family had superior armed guards within their compound or they bribed the attackers and sent them on their way (or the story is a complete fabrication).

Both Ali and Nur escaped Somalia after the fall of Barre.  Because they were no longer safe there and would have been put on trial and shot if caught, they exited the country. Both ended up in the US and both hid the fact that they worked for a totalitarian regime. Both lied on their Form N-400, Application for Naturalization about their communist background.  (They had to or they wouldn’t be here.)

As you can see below:

The Immigration and Nationality Act (I.N.A.) contains a prohibition on naturalization for anyone involved, within the last ten years, with a group that advocates or teaches opposition to all organized government; or involved with the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party of the U.S. or any foreign state; or who advocates world communism or totalitarian dictatorship even without formal group membership. (See I.N.A. Section 313).”

Both Nur and Yusuf should be disqualified from permanent US residency and a revocation of their US citizenship should take place.

Representative Omar reportedly lied after she married her brother in order to assist him in obtaining US citizenship.

This would obviously disqualify Omar and her brother from legal citizenship.

It looks like illegal citizenship is all in the family for Omar and her family.  Like father, like daughter (like son).

Italian Crime Boss Raduano, the ‘Fourth Mafia’ Head Who Escaped Maximum Security Prison by Scaling Down the Walls in Knotted Bedsheets, Is Rearrested in Corsica (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sat, 02/03/2024 - 00:00

It was another chapter in a real-life story with all the best marks of classic mafia movies – such as daring escapes and exotic islands.

The Italian Police confirmed the arrest of high-profile fugitive Marco Raduano, head of a little-known organized crime syndicate in Foggia, in the southern Italian region of Puglia, known as the ‘Fourth Mafia’.

The 40-year-old mafia boss broke out of the high-security wing of Nuoro, in Sardinia, using the time-honored method of knotted bedsheets to scale down the prison walls.

His capture came as a relief for the authorities, since his escape meant significant embarrassment for the Italian Justice.

Raduano heads one of Italy’s most violent mafias, and was arrested on Thursday evening (1), as he was dining at a restaurant with a young woman.

CBS reported:

“Raduano, described as ‘dangerous’ on Europol’s list of Europe’s most wanted criminals, was detained in Bastia on the French island of Corsica.

He had escaped from a heavily secured prison in Nuoro, Sardinia, in February 2023, using sheets to scale down the walls. The escape was captured on surveillance footage and shared widely on social media. In the video, Raduano can be seen dangling from the sheets before jumping to the ground and running away.”

— Marco Fattorini (@MarcoFattorini) February 26, 2023

Raduano’s prison was not the only recent setback for the ‘Fourth Mafia’, since his right-hand man, Gianluigi Troiano, was also arrested near Granada, in Spain.

Interior Minister Matteo Piantedosi described the actions as ‘another major blow against organized crime’.

“[Raduano] had been serving a 24-year prison sentence for membership of a criminal organization, drug trafficking, holding illegal weapons and other crimes, according to Europol.

A source close to the matter in Corsica told AFP that Raduano was arrested on Thursday evening in Aleria, as he was dining in a restaurant with a young woman.”

Sources tell he had been living there frugally on false papers, and did not resist arrest.

“Europol said he was ‘at the top’ of his criminal organization, ‘with the role of promoter, organizer and ruthless killer of the group dedicated to the perpetration of murders, drug trafficking and management of the extortion racket’, it said.”

The largest (and legendary) Italian criminal organizations are the wealthy ‘Ndrangheta from Calabria, the Naples-based Camorra and Sicily’s Cosa Nostra.

But the young Fourth Mafia is today already considered Italy’s most violent organized crime syndicate.

They rely on extortions, drug trafficking, armed robberies, as well as vehicle and livestock theft.

Dr. Jill Makes Sure Joe Biden Doesn’t Check His Watch During Dignified Transfer of 3 US Servicemembers Killed in Jordan (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Fri, 02/02/2024 - 23:40

Joe and Jill Biden on Friday attended the dignified transfer of the three US servicemembers killed in a drone attack in Jordan last weekend.

Three U.S. Servicemembers were killed and were 34 injured with 8 requiring to be transported to another location for treatment. The troops were reportedly in a tent structure sleeping when they were attacked by a UAS, or unmanned aircraft system, late Saturday night into Sunday.

The three servicemembers killed in action were all members of the 718th Engineer Company, a reservist unit out of Fort Moore, Georgia.

The Pentagon released the names of three deceased servicemembers:

  • Sgt. William Jerome Rivers, 46 of Carrollton, GA
  • Spc. Kennedy Ladon Sanders, 24, of Waycross, GA
  • Spc. Breonna Alexsondria Moffett, 23, Savannah, GA


deceased servicemembers from left to right: Rivers, Sanders, Moffett

The US on Friday began retaliatory strikes in the Middle East after three American service members were killed in Jordan on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden was at Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Delaware attending the dignified transfer of the three troops killed in the drone attack.

Dr. Jill made sure Joe Biden didn’t check his watch during the dignified transfer like he did last time.

Joe Biden likely wore gloves on Friday in balmy 43-degree weather so he wouldn’t check his watch. Virtually no one else who attended the dignified transfer wore gloves (except for Jill Biden).

Jill Biden kept an eye on Joe to make sure he didn’t check his watch.

Victor Reacts: Fools Love Affair, Fani Willis and Head Prosecutor Admit to Sexual Relationship (VIDEO)

How stupid does she think you are? The rogue Fulton County DA, Fani Willis claims that there is no conflict of interest while admitting that she has a sexual relationship with the man she hired to go after Donald Trump.

As reported by the Gateway Pundit,

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis admitted she is having a sexual relationship with Nathan Wade, the top prosecutor she hired to handle Trump’s RICO case.

Willis acknowledged the improper relationship with her paramour in a 176-page court filing on Friday in response to a motion filed by Trump’s co-defendant Michael Roman alleging misconduct.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fani Willis “financially benefited” from a romantic relationship with Nathan Wade.

A motion was previously filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County on behalf of defendant Michael Roman, a former Trump campaign official who was hit with 7 counts in Fani Willis’ RICO case

The filing claims Nathan Wade, the special prosecutor hired to go after Trump, paid for luxury vacations he took with Fani Willis to Napa Valley and a cruise in the Caribbean – and used money from Fulton County to pay for their out-of-town escapades.

“County records show that Wade, who has played a prominent role in the election interference case, has been paid nearly $654,000 in legal fees since January 2022. The DA authorizes his compensation.” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

If this is not a conflict of interest than what would be? This is yet another example of the anti-Trump witch-hunts being proven to be an absolute sham. This is not about justice, it is about personal enrichment and abusing the system to target your political opponent. Behavior like this is a staple of a corrupt, failed state.

President Trump stated, “Fani Willis, the D.A. of Fulton County, just admitted to having a sexual relationship with the Prosecutor she, in consultation with the White House and DOJ, appointed to “GET PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.” By going after the most high level person, and the Republican Nominee, she was able to get her “lover” much more money, almost a Million Dollars, than she would be able to get for the prosecution of any other person or individual. THAT MEANS THAT THIS SCAM IS TOTALLY DISCREDITED & OVER!”

GatewayPundit - Fri, 02/02/2024 - 23:00

Actor Carl Weathers, known for his legendary role as Apollo Creed in the Rocky franchise, has died at 76.

Carl Weathers, who was a former NFL linebacker for the Oakland Raiders who transitioned into a Hollywood star, died peacefully in his sleep.

In a statement, the Weathers family shared, “We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Carl Weathers.

The family’s statement continued, “Carl was an exceptional human being who lived an extraordinary life. Through his contributions to film, television, the arts and sports, he has left an indelible mark and is recognized worldwide and across generations. He was a beloved brother, father, grandfather, partner and friend.”

Per AP:

Carl Weathers, a former NFL linebacker who became a Hollywood action movie and comedy star, playing nemesis-turned-ally Apollo Creed in the “Rocky” movies, facing off against Arnold Schwarzenegger in “Predator” and teaching golf in “Happy Gilmore,” has died. He was 76.

Matt Luber, his manager, said Weathers died Thursday. His family issued a statement saying he died “peacefully in his sleep.”

Comfortable flexing his muscles on the big screen in “Action Jackson” as he was joking around on the small screen in such shows as “Arrested Development,” Weathers was perhaps most closely associated with Creed, who made his first appearance as the cocky, undisputed heavyweight world champion in 1976’s “Rocky,” starring Sylvester Stallone.

“It puts you on the map and makes your career, so to speak. But that’s a one-off, so you’ve got to follow it up with something. Fortunately those movies kept coming, and Apollo Creed became more and more in people’s consciousness and welcome in their lives, and it was just the right guy at the right time,” he told The Daily Beast in 2017.

America Last: NYC Launches $53 Million Pilot Program to Provide Pre-Paid Credit Cards to Illegal Aliens — Family of Four Will Receive $1,000 Per Month

GatewayPundit - Fri, 02/02/2024 - 22:40

In a move that epitomizes the “America Last” ethos, Mayor Eric Adams’ administration has initiated a controversial $53 million pilot program, purportedly designed to assist illegal immigrant families in New York City, the New York Post reported.

As part of this initiative, the city intends to provide pre-paid credit cards to illegal immigrant families housed in upscale hotels such as the Roosevelt Hotel. Managed by the New Jersey-based Mobility Capital Finance (MoCaFi), it is designed to replace existing food services, granting migrants the freedom to purchase their groceries and baby supplies.

The amount loaded onto the cards will vary based on family size and income, with a four-person household potentially receiving up to $1,000 a month, or $35 daily. These cards will be reloaded every 28 days.

Initially targeting a pilot group of 500 individuals, the city plans to potentially extend this offering to accommodate the entire number of illegal aliens staying in the hotels, which is approximately 15,000.

“Not only will this provide families with the ability to purchase fresh food for their culturally relevant diets and the baby supplies of their choosing, but the pilot program is expected to save New York City more than $600,000 per month, or more than $7.2 million annually,” Adams spokesperson Kayla Mamelak said.

New York Post reported:

The city has been shelling out about $11 per meal to feed migrant families in hotels, something that’s long posed a problem as some asylum seekers from various countries in Central and South America, Africa and Europe may be looking for a taste of home.

Just last month, the controversial company DocGo was found to be wasting thousands of dollars on uneaten meals.

Migrants confessed to The Post in the days after that they would rather cook in their hotel rooms because the provided meals were so “bad.”

News of the pre-paid card program comes a day after The Post revealed another $137 million in contracts with city hotels to provide more than 750 rooms to asylum seekers with families.

The city is housing just over 66,000 asylum seekers after 1,500 more arrived last week as part of a crisis that is expected to cost $10 billion through 2025.

The program raises significant ethical and financial questions. It draws an uncomfortable parallel with the state’s food stamp program, SNAP, yet with a glaring difference: it exclusively benefits illegal immigrants over the city’s own struggling residents.

The decision to allocate such a substantial sum towards this program is particularly galling when considering the myriad challenges facing New York City’s legal residents.

From homelessness and housing shortages to underfunded public schools and crumbling infrastructure, the needs of New Yorkers seem to have been sidelined.

Last November, Eric Adams on Thursday announced new budget cuts due to the financial strain the hordes of illegal aliens are causing the City.

The illegals are taking over New York City, and now the City is slashing the NYPD force and reducing money allocated toward education.

“For months, we have warned New Yorkers about the challenging fiscal situation our city faces,” said Mayor Adams. “To balance the budget as the law requires, every city agency dug into their own budget to find savings, with minimal disruption to services. And while we pulled it off this time, make no mistake: Migrant costs are going up, tax revenue growth is slowing, and COVID stimulus funding is drying up. No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will be only the beginning.”

Eric Adams went to Washington, DC, for the 10th time to plead for help from Biden but admitted, “help is not on its way.”

“I did not leave with optimism,” Adams said to reporters last December.

“I left with the cold reality that help is not on the way in the immediate future. It is going to be, at this moment, it’s going to be up to New Yorkers and this administration to continue to navigate this challenge that we’re facing.”

In the past, he slammed Biden’s border policy indirectly by claiming that the migrant crisis is ‘destroying’ the city.

After his most recent fruitless plea for help, Adams once again hinted that the blame should lay at Joe Biden’s feet.

What’s Being Said Behind Closed Doors in the White House Is Something All Biden Voters Should Know: Report

GatewayPundit - Fri, 02/02/2024 - 22:20

When Joe Biden vowed to unify the country, it wasn’t just a bad joke. It was a lie.

“I pledged to be a president who seeks not to divide but unify,” Biden said in a speech on Nov. 7, 2020, one day after he won the White House.

He returned to the idea in his inaugural address two months later, saying, “To restore the soul and to secure the future of America requires more than words. It requires that most elusive of things in a democracy: unity.”

“Together, we shall write an American story of hope, not fear. Of unity, not division,” the president said.

Unity has been a theme of the Biden presidency.

Now we have gotten a glimpse of his behind-the-doors personality — the real Joe Biden. And it’s not pretty — or unifying.

“Biden is known for cursing in private” when speaking about former President Donald Trump, Politico reported Wednesday.

He has said Trump — his 2020 opponent and the leading GOP presidential candidate this year — is a “sick f***” who delights in the sorrows of others, according to three people who said they heard him use the term.

One person told Politico that Biden said of the former president: “What a f***ing a**hole the guy is.”

It’s tough to promote unity when you’re seething with hatred.

Biden’s “Dark Brandon” appearance at Independence Hall in Philadelphia on Sept. 1, 2022, came off as “hate speech” that perfectly matched the “dystopian aesthetic,” Sky News host Rita Panahi said afterward.

In the speech, the president claimed that “MAGA Republicans … embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies.”

This is a classic example of the pot calling the kettle black.

Biden’s ugly words don’t jibe with the grandfatherly role ascribed to him by Liana Fix, a European fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, when she was speaking about his role in NATO, according to CBS News.

“President Biden is the old, great trans-Atlanticist,” Fix said in July. “It’s a grandfatherly appeal, and the warmth and wisdom from his age seems to transfer.”

Either Biden has a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde personality disorder or he’s playing the part of the trickster, selling one thing and stealing another.

The president’s language behind closed doors is something people should know about. At best, he is disingenuous. At worst, he is a calculating liar who is losing his grip when it comes to juggling his multiple identities.

Biden’s penchant for cursing about Trump in private nearly came out in public in a speech at Valley Forge last month, according to Politico.

The president spoke in Pennsylvania to mark the third anniversary of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incursion — which Democrats fondly call an “insurrection” in the hopes it will bestow enough fear to blind dumb Americans into voting for Biden again.

In his address, an angry Biden lambasted Trump and his followers for promoting violence.

“At his rally, he jokes about an intruder, whipped up by the big Trump lie, taking a hammer to Paul Pelosi’s skull,” he said, referring to the attack on former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband.

“And he thinks that’s funny. He laughed about it. What a sick –” Biden’s voice trailed off.

The crowd cheered and chuckled as if to say, “Isn’t the angry old man cute?”

It’s not cute. It’s ugly.

The Trump camp called out Biden for his remarks, according to Politico. Chris Lacivita, a senior Trump campaign adviser, said, “It’s a shame that Crooked Joe Biden disrespects the presidency both publicly and privately. But then again, it’s no surprise he disrespects the 45th president the same way he disrespects the American people with his failed policies.”

Say what you want about Trump, but what you see is what you get. Not so with Biden. What his handlers want you to see is not what they want you to get. Progressives see people as objects to be manipulated. For them, power is a game of appearances. Joe Biden is their puppet.

But Joe is losing his grip. When the facade falls away, all that will be left is a bitter old man. It’s an American tragedy on the world stage.

WATCH: Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg Repeatedly Refuses to Answer Questions on Why Illegal Aliens Who Brutally Attacked NYPD Officers Were Released

GatewayPundit - Fri, 02/02/2024 - 22:00

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg repeatedly refused to answer questions on why illegal aliens who brutally attacked NYPD officers were released.

Two of the illegal aliens charged with assaulting two NYPD officers in Times Square were released without bail and were photographed flipping the middle finger to the media after leaving court.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported the incident, which occurred last Saturday night, involving a mob of illegal immigrants who brutally assaulted two New York City police officers.

The attack, captured on video near a migrant center in Times Square, shows the officers initially directing the group to disperse. Moments later, the officers reappear in the frame, physically struggling with one of the migrants.

According to authorities, eight people attacked the two cops.

The assailants, identified by sources as Darwin Andres Gomez Izquiel, 19, Kelvin Servat Arocha, 19, Juarez Wilson, 21, and Yorman Reveron, 24, were all charged with assault but subsequently released without bail.

One of the illegals released by Alvin Bragg proudly flipped off the cameras as he walked down the street as a free man.

This is what the illegals and Joe Biden think of the US and its citizens.

This man entered the country illegally, was caught on camera beating a cop, and walked out of jail without bail.

This is what he thinks of you and your country.

He believes he is above the law.

And he’s right. pic.twitter.com/8SX8tnEyaW

Alvin Bragg briskly walked away from reporters as they questioned him about his decision to release the illegals.

“Why were those migrants released?” a reporter asked Bragg as he quickly walked to a vehicle waiting to whisk him away.

“Do you regret it? Do you regret letting these migrants free?” the reporter asked.

Bragg repeatedly refused to answer any questions.

BREAKING: WWIII WATCH: US Begins Retaliatory Strikes in Middle East After 3 Servicemembers Killed in Jordan

GatewayPundit - Fri, 02/02/2024 - 21:40

The US on Friday began retaliatory strikes in the Middle East after three American service members were killed in Jordan on Sunday.

The strikes began in Iraq and Syria, US officials confirmed, according to ABC News.

Iran previously warned Joe Biden it would retaliate if he responded to the deadly drone attack on American service members.

The airstrikes employed more than 125 precision munitions and US military forces struck more than 85 targets, according to a statement released by CENTCOM.

Full statement:

At 4:00 p.m. (EST) Feb. 02, U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) forces conducted airstrikes in Iraq and Syria against Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force and affiliated militia groups. U.S. military forces struck more than 85 targets, with numerous aircraft to include long-range bombers flown from United States. The airstrikes employed more than 125 precision munitions. The facilities that were struck included command and control operations centers, intelligence centers, rockets, and missiles, and unmanned aerial vehicle storages, and logistics and munition supply chain facilities of militia groups and their IRGC sponsors who facilitated attacks against U.S. and Coalition forces.

The strikes come after Joe Biden gave Iran plenty of time to prepare for a ‘multi-tiered response’ after more than 160 attacks on US military bases in Iraq, Syria and Jordan.

Three U.S. Servicemembers were killed and were 34 injured with 8 requiring to be transported to another location for treatment. The troops were reportedly in a tent structure sleeping when they were attacked by a UAS, or unmanned aircraft system, late Saturday night.

The three servicemembers killed in action were all members of the 718th Engineer Company, a reservist unit out of Fort Moore, Georgia.

The Pentagon released the names of three deceased servicemembers:

  • Sgt. William Jerome Rivers, 46 of Carrollton, GA
  • Spc. Kennedy Ladon Sanders, 24, of Waycross, GA
  • Spc. Breonna Alexsondria Moffett, 23, Savannah, GA


deceased servicemembers from left to right: Rivers, Sanders, Moffett

More on this developing story from CBS News:

The last time Joe Biden responded to a deadly attack on American soldiers, he ended up droning children in Afghanistan.

Biden killed an entire family just so he could look like he ‘fought back’ after a suicide bomber killed 13 US service members in Kabul during his botched withdrawal.

However, no disciplinary action was taken against anyone involved in the drone strike.

The Blob Wants You To Know That U.S. Border Security Is Contingent On Ukrainian Border Security

DougRoss - Fri, 02/02/2024 - 21:32

Editor's Note: The term Blob is borrowed from the esteemed James Howard Kunstler.

By Senator Mike Lee

Earlier today, a reporter standing outside the Senate chamber told me that, after four months of secrecy, The Firm™️ plans to release the text of the $106 billion supplemental aid / border-security package—possibly as soon as tomorrow.

Wasting no time, she then asked, “if you get the bill by tomorrow, will you be ready to vote on it by Tuesday?”

The words “hell no” escaped my mouth before I could stop them. Those are strong words where I come from. (Sorry, Mom).

The reporter immediately understood that my frustration was not directed at her.

Rather, it was directed at the Law Firm of Schumer & McConnell (“The Firm™️”), which is perpetually trying to normalize a corrupt approach to legislating—in which The Firm™️

(1) spends months drafting legislation in complete secrecy,

(2) aggressively markets that legislation based not on its details and practical implications (good and bad), but only on its broadest, least-controversial objectives,

(3) lets members see bill text for the first time only a few days (sometimes a few hours) before an arbitrary deadline imposed by The Firm™️ itself, always with a contrived sense of urgency, and then

(4) forces a vote on the legislation on or before that deadline, denying senators any real opportunity to read, digest, and debate the measure on its merits, much less introduce, consider, and vote on amendments to fix any perceived problems with the bill or otherwise improve it.

Whenever The Firm™️ engages in this practice, it largely excludes nearly every senator from the constitutionally prescribed process in which all senators are supposed to participate.

By so doing, The Firm™️ effectively disenfranchises hundreds of millions of Americans—at least for purposes relevant to the legislation at hand—and that’s tragic.

It’s also unAmerican, uncivil, uncollegial, and really uncool.

So why does The Firm™️ do it?

Every time The Firm™️ utilizes this approach and the bill passes—and it nearly always does—The Firm™️ becomes more powerful.

The high success rate is largely attributable to the fact that The Firm™️ has become very adept at (a) enlisting the help of the (freakishly cooperative) news media, (b) exerting peer pressure in a way that makes what you experienced in middle school look mild by comparison, and (c) rewarding those who consistently vote with The Firm™️ with various privileges that The Firm™️ is uniquely capable of offering (committee assignments, help with campaign fundraising, and a whole host of other widely coveted things that The Firm™️ is free to distribute in any manner it pleases).

It’s through this process that The Firm™️ passes most major spending legislation.

It’s through this process that The Firm™️ likely intends to pass the still-secret, $106 billion supplemental aid / border-security package, which The Firm™️ has spent four months negotiating, with the luxury of obsessing over every sentence, word, period, and comma.

I still don’t know exactly what’s in this bill, although I have serious concerns with it based on the few details The Firm™️ has been willing to share.

But under no circumstances should this bill — which would fund military operations in three distant parts of the world and make massive, permanent changes to immigration law — be passed next week.

Nor should it be passed until we have had adequate time to read the bill, discuss it with constituents, debate it, offer amendments, and vote on those amendments.

There’s no universe in which those things will happen by next week.

Depending on how long it is and the complexity of its provisions, the minimum period of time we should devote to this bill after it’s released should be measured in weeks or months, not days or hours.

Please share this if you agree.

Nayib Bukele, Who Cleaned El Salvador From the Rule of Criminal Gangs, Is Now Running for Reelection Under Liberal MSM’S Microscope

GatewayPundit - Fri, 02/02/2024 - 21:20

For sure, organized crime is a scourge that is plaguing much of the world – east and west, north and south, no one seems quite immune to it.

But there is one country who just a few years ago used to be one of the most dangerous places in the world, controlled by hellish gangs like MS13 – a nation whose homicide rate has now shrunk to one of the lowest in the planet.

We are talking about El Salvador, of course.

Read: Take A Look Inside This MASSIVE Prison That Is Now Home For 40,000 Gang Members In El Salvador (VIDEO)

The President who made this miraculous thing happen is called Nayib Bukele, and for sure his tactics are so tough and intense as to turn the stomach on the more fragile sensibilities.

But how do you fight crime if not Bukele’s way? Songs and roses?

Until someone else achieves what he has – with other, more ‘humane’ methods – experience will be teaching us that Bukele’s way may be the only one.

Associated Press reported:

“To many, El Salvador’s president is a national hero who took on the country’s violent gangs with an unrelenting hand. To others, the populist is a 21st century autocrat who has committed mass human rights abuses and has altered the rules of the game to concentrate power in his own hands.”

Bukele has captured not only thousands of gang members, but also the world’s attention – in a way no other Latin American leaders have managed to, in recent times.

“The self-described ‘world’s coolest dictator’ is likely to easily skate into a second presidential term in the election Sunday. After sidestepping El Salvador’s constitution prohibiting reelection in six different places, Bukele has the support of from seven to nine of every 10 voters, according to recent polling.

[…] Bukele’s almost certain victory will further cement his grip on power as his tough tactics ripple out from this small Central American nation to other places with their own security crises like Ecuador, Honduras and the Dominican Republic. That worries rights advocates across the region.”

Read: El Salvador President Mocks Globalist NGOs: “Where Were You When The Gangs Were Killing Our Children?”

Elected in 2019, Bukele, a publicity manager of Palestinian descent, became Latin America’s youngest leader.

He declared a state of emergency, and proceeded to lock up an astounding 76,000 people — more than 1% of the population.

Vice president and reelection running mate, Félix Ulloa denies the government has suspended the rights of ‘honorable’ Salvadorans. The crackdown are for the greater good of the country and are widely popular. ‘This is not a police state, it’s a state that provides security’.

“Bukele has pinned his campaign on the gang crackdown, warning Salvadorans that if his New Ideas party doesn’t win the election, ‘the war with the gangs would be put at risk. The opposition will be able to achieve its true and only plan, to free the gang members and use them to return to power’, he said in one video as his message is spread widely on television, radio and social media.”

All of the above is not to suggest that Bukele’s rule has been perfect, since poverty is a problem that hasn’t been tackled yet.

But there is no denying that a secure country has more chance to thrive than a criminals’ stronghold.

Christian Gold Company Defies Industry’s Retirement Fearmongering Through Prayer and Biblical Hope

GatewayPundit - Fri, 02/02/2024 - 21:00

Note: The information provided herein or any related communications is for informational purposes only and should not be considered as financial advice. Gateway Pundit does not provide personalized investment, financial, or legal advice. Gateway Pundit benefits from purchases made through our sponsors.


In the world of precious metals, the economic sky is always supposed to be falling. For years, even decades, gold and silver companies have relied on fear to drive people into purchasing precious metals.

Unfortunately, the predictions that have been proven mostly wrong for a long time are manifesting as reality today. Banks truly are collapsing. De-dollarization is happening in real time. Inflation has gotten so bad that numbers which were considered horrible just three or four years ago are heralded as improvements today.

Add in the rise of Central Bank Digital Currencies, “woke” ESG funds, and anti-capitalist fiscal policies to the mix and it is clear retirement portfolios aren’t nearly as safe as they were just a couple of years ago.

But here’s the thing. The sky isn’t falling on us today. Economic collapse may be approaching, but it’s important to maintain a level of realistic hope that we can get through these rough times and emerge stronger in the future. That’s not to say we should be delusional or stick our heads in the sand, but making decisions based on fear can force bad financial choices.

Genesis Gold Group, a Christian company that specializes in retirement account rollovers and transfers, defies the precious metals industry’s standard operating procedures of pressing doom and gloom.

“To safeguard my wealth during economic challenges, I choose to invest in precious metals like gold and silver,” said Pastor David Holland, Director of Philanthropy for Genesis Gold Group. “These assets serve as a means of preserving my resources so that when the right time comes, I can put them to work for the important purpose of advancing God’s kingdom. This could include assisting neighbors in need or supporting missionaries near and abroad, but I am unable to help if my wealth is wiped out.”

Holland often finds himself praying with customers over the phone as they make crucial decisions about their wealth and retirement. And while he recognizes the many challenges Americans face in this economy, he refuses to rely on fear to drive sales.

“Ultimately, we put our faith in Christ and not in things that pass away,” he said. “But I’m entrusted right now with resources that I must be a good steward of in the face of foolish economic policies or unbiblical and anti-God corporations.”

One of the real differentiators between Genesis Gold Group and the vast majority of companies in the industry is their unwillingness to “hook” customers with promises of “free” silver. It has become commonplace for precious metals companies to offer $5,000, $10,000, or more in “free” silver in exchange for customers buying their products. But what they don’t mention is that their margins are so large that they can afford to offer thousands in “free” silver.

A recent exposé by the Washington Post highlighted how “Big Gold” companies often fleece customers through such offers.

“A customer’s $100,000 investment netted him just $53,000 worth of gold and silver, according to a Post analysis of his invoices – meaning the coins had been marked up 92 percent over the value of the metal,” the exposé noted.

With such markups, it’s easy to see how these precious metals companies can be so generous with “free” silver.

Genesis Gold Group has gone against this trend in the industry. This is just one of the reasons they enjoy a perfect 5 out of 5 on their Better Business Bureau customer reviews. Here are some of their recent writeups from actual customers:

  • ”Genesis Gold Group has been very helpful to me as a first time customer. They were very patient with me and answered every question I had. The process of moving my funds from my former account to Genesis Gold Group was straightforward and easy. I highly recommend their services.”

  • ”Genesis Gold Group is a wonderful company to do business with. The staff are knowledgeable, courteous, and patient. **** knows I’ve had many questions before, during, and even after opening my Self Directed IRA and everyone has been very kind and open. Start your Gold IRA with Genesis Gold Group without reservation!”

  • ”The staff at Genesis Gold Group has been very friendly and helpful. I was contacted by them when I left my contact details on their website. They weren’t just interested in my business only but me as well. I can tell that they’re for real. My texts are replied within the same day. I had a concern and I got a call within hours. The staff was willing to talk about life, food, prayed for my wife. This is how businesses should be. It takes something special to do so. And most importantly, I am not the investor with a lot of money here, just pocket change and I have never felt like I am an inferior person. Glad I found Genesis Gold Group.”

  • ”This company has been a wonderful choice for us and helped greatly when we were buying metals for the first time. Genesis Gold Group’s representative is easy to talk to and very kind, he understands that most of us don’t have a clue about making a purchase buying precious metals. I absolutely recommend Genesis Gold Group.”
