Who Really Pooped on the White House Floor?

Black Sphere - Sat, 04/03/2021 - 04:10

The following article, Who Really Pooped on the White House Floor?, was first published on The Black Sphere.

I can only imagine the day to day goings on at the White House under Captain Demento. From walking around “commando” asking “Where are my socks?!” to trying to figure out how to put on his underwear, Biden must be a joy to watch. The level of preparation to get this guy presentable boggles the […]

Lindsey Graham Shows Off His AR-15 Skills As He Takes A Stand For The Second Amendment

LifeZette - Sat, 04/03/2021 - 00:27

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) took to Twitter on Thursday to take a stand for the Second Amendment by showing off his skills with an AR-15.

Graham can be seen in the video paying am visit to the Palmetto State Armory, where he was given a rifle to fire with. Afterwards, he gave a press conference in which he defended the Second Amendment and attacked President Joe Biden for trying to ban certain firearms.

“Democrats are basically declaring war on gun ownership,” Graham proclaimed.

In the caption besides the video he posted to Twitter, Graham wrote, “In 1994, there was an Assault Weapons Ban — the evidence indicates that there was really no change at all in crime, because the crooks are going to get a gun! Today at @PalmettoArmory I fired one of the weapons they are trying to ban. #2A.”

“Now why would anybody need to own an AR-15?” Graham continued. “If there is a breakdown of law and order, and that can happen — we’ve seen it happen in our major cities. Remember [Hurricane] Hugo, where people were isolated for days? Remember [Hurricane] Katrina?”

“It’s not impossible to find yourself in the modern world without any police protection, because that’s just the way the times are in which we live in,” he added. “We’re talking about defunding the police!”

“In South Carolina, we take seriously the right to bear arms, but also the responsibility that comes from owning a weapon,” Graham said in his press conference. Not stopping there, the fed-up Republican senator slammed the background check bills that the U.S. House recently passed. Graham believes these bills are way too restrictive for law-abiding citizens, and he pledged to fight back against any assault weapons ban backed by Biden if it heads to the Senate.

“Let’s bring them all to the floor,” he said. “Let’s vote. Maybe we can find some compromise, but I want to put every United States senator on the record as to where they stand on the Second Amendment. I think the voters in 2022 need to understand this.”

“One of the things about our Constitution is that we understood early on that if you live in a dictatorship, or in places where the government runs everything, the first thing they take away from you is not just your speech but your ability to defend yourself. That’s why the Second Amendment exists,” Graham added. “The ability to own a gun responsibly is a constitutional right in America, and here’s what I would say: We need that right today, as much as any other time in American history.”

Later on, Graham lashed out at the  “liberal elite” who he said often don’t realize the necessity for self-defense.

“It’s the liberal elite who are able to live in a security environment the average person can’t have,” Graham said. “All the people talking about taking your guns away have armed guards around them. So I’m here to tell you, look, in South Carolina this year, where three people, senior citizens, mostly, if they had not had a gun, they would have been killed. Women would be raped and people would be killed time and time again without the ability to defend themselves. This is not fear mongering. This actually happens.”

Lindsey Graham Torches Fauci – Says He Should Be Calling For Migration Programs To Be Shut Down

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 21:37

While appearing on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show on Thursday night, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called on White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci to visit the border, adding that if he’s “not compelled to shut down this illegal immigration program, I don’t want to hear anything you’ve got to say about baseball or restaurants.”

“Well, President Biden said to the Texas Ranger[s] baseball team…you need to listen to Dr. Fauci about urging people to come to the baseball game, Opening Day,” Graham said. “Dr. Fauci, you need to go to the border. And here’s what you will see: You will see 900 people in a room built for 80. You will see people living on top of each other, a 10% positive rate, where the positive people are intermingled with everybody else, and all these illegal immigrants are dumped off in Texas and the rest of the country.”

“So, Dr. Fauci, you need to go to the border, and if you’re not compelled to shut down this illegal immigration program, I don’t want to hear anything you’ve got to say about baseball or restaurants,” he added. “It is the biggest, in my view, COVID spreader in the world along the border, where thousands of illegal immigrants are coming to this country, positive, 10% positive rate, intermingled with each other, dropped out all over Texas and the rest of America. So, I’m not worried about the baseball game in Texas. I’m worried about illegal immigrants infecting the whole country given the policies that Biden has.”

This comes after Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) also made similar comments criticizing Fauci in his own interview with Ingraham last month.

“Senator, you have been one of the few lawmakers to directly call out Dr. Fauci lies,” Ingraham said. “Are people afraid to question him? And if so, why?”

“Well, it’s the science — and people are afraid of, you know, scientists, and he’s put on a pedestal,” Paul replied. “But you have to remember that his lies are noble lies, Laura. He’s not telling you this because he’s a mean man.”

“He’s telling you this because he feels sorry for you because you don’t understand, and Americans aren’t smart enough to make an informed decision,” he continued. “So, he fashions himself some sort of Greek philosopher. He tells you these noble lies.”

Capitol Killer Noah Green Claimed Feds Targeted Him With “Mind Control,” Made Multiple Anti-Government Social Media Posts

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 21:33

Noah Green has been identified as the man who rammed his vehicle into two U.S. Capitol Police Officers on Friday, resulting in the death of Officer William ‘Billy’ Evans, injuries to another USCP Officer, and Green’s death.  Authorities say Green rammed the officers and then exited the vehicle with a large knife. USCP officers fired on Green, fatally wounding him.

Jesse Rodriguez, Vice President of Editorial for MSNBC, tweeted “The suspect in Capitol Police incident is a 25 year old Indiana man named Noah Green. May have lived in Virginia. On his Facebook page, he notes that he is a follower of the Nation of Islam.”

NBC's Pete Williams reports on @MSNBC: The suspect in Capitol Police incident is a 25 year old Indiana man named Noah Green. May have lived in Virginia. On his Facebook page, he notes that he is a follower of the Nation of Islam. Suspect is now dead.

— Jesse Rodriguez (@JesseRodriguez) April 2, 2021

In an article, CNN reported Green posted several stories on Instagram less than two hours before he was killed. The Instagram account featured other videos of Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan speaking.

 

One of the videos was titled, “The U.S. Government is the #1 enemy of Black people!”  In a separate Instagram post last week, Green wrote that Farrakhan saved him “after the terrible afflictions I have suffered presumably by the CIA and FBI, government agencies of the United States of America.”

In a comment to that post, Green added, “I have suffered multiple home break ins, food poisonings, assaults, unauthorized operations in the hospital, mind control.”

In a Facebook account, Green posted that the “person in history he’d most like to meet is Malcolm X.”

Green’s social media accounts were quickly taken down. Jordan Lancaster, a reporter for Daily Caller,  took screenshots of Green’s social posts prior to the big tech deletion.

Here are some screenshots I took of his posts right before the profile was removed pic.twitter.com/B1uVExwm5I

Also in Green’s social was an image of a certificate showing he made a donation to the Nation of Islam for $1,085.

Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Sarah Palin For Getting COVID – ‘Lipstick On A Pit Bull’

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 21:02

The radically liberal late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel had a field day on Thursday night over the fact that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin had tested positive for COVID-19. He went so claim that “these people,” undoubtedly meaning conservatives, “only believe in science when it happens to them.”

“You know who tested positive for COVID? Our old lipstick on a pit bull herself Sarah Palin announced that she and her two of her kids contracted the virus,” Kimmel said during his opening monologue before mocking Palin by saying that you “almost have to try to catch COVID in Alaska.”

“It’s easier to catch a bald eagle than COVID in Alaska,” he said, before targeting Palin for pleading with people to wear a mask, which he described as “rich.”

“At the beginning of this back in May, she traveled all the way to Texas to visit a beauty salon to support the owner of that salon who went to jail because she refused to shut her business down,” Kimmel said, referring to a visit Palin made t  Salon Á la Mode.

“She said it was her constitutional right to endanger her community,” he added. “But now that Sarah has herself been bitten by the bug she changed her tune. I love these people who only believe in science when it happens to them.”

Kimmel concluded that these types of people “only acknowledge COVID is real” after they contract it, adding, “It’s like saying, ‘Now that I have been mauled by a bear personally, I realize that their claws and teeth are very sharp.’ But good for her for speaking out finally.”

This came after Palin opened up about her diagnosis with COVID-19 to People Magazine, saying that it started when “one of my daughters awoke to having lost her sense of taste and smell [and] immediately had a positive COVID test, then was quarantined in isolation.”

“I then observed symptoms in my son Trig, who curiously is the most enthusiastic mask-wearer, and after our numerous negative tests over the year, he tested positive,” Palin said. “Children with special needs are vulnerable to COVID ramifications [Trig was born with Down syndrome], so with a high fever he was prescribed azithromycin, which really seemed to help, and I increased amounts of vitamins I put in his puréed food.”

Palin went on to say that she noticed that she had some of the “bizarre” symptoms characteristic of the virus, like a loss of taste and smell, leading her to assume it was “unmistakable COVID caught me.”

“That day I finally tested positive — like millions of other Americans,” she said.

After saying that the coronavirus can “really knock you down,” she encouraged others to continue being cautious during this pandemic.

“I strongly encourage everyone to use common sense to avoid spreading this and every other virus out there,” she said. “There are more viruses than there are stars in the sky, meaning we’ll never avoid every source of illness or danger … But please be vigilant, don’t be frightened, and I advise reprioritizing some personal time and resources to ensure as healthy a lifestyle as you can create so when viruses do hit, you have at least some armor to fight it.”

Arizona Senate announces a forensic audit to be done of 2020 election

Geller Report - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 21:00

One day the truth will out.

The election was stolen.

Arizona Senate announces a forensic audit to be done of 2020 election!

By: The Right Scoop, Mar. 31, 2021:

The Arizona Senate has just hired a group of independent auditors to perform a forensic audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Arizona Senate hires auditor to review 2020 election in Maricopa County#AZSenate #Elections #Audit @FannKfann @votewarren pic.twitter.com/pz6dY8MrbB

— AZSenateRepublicans (@AZSenateGOP) March 31, 2021

Here’s a larger version of the document for you to read:

The announcement says:

“The audit will validate every area of the voting process to ensure the integrity of the vote. The scope of work will include, but is not limited to, scanning all the ballots, a full manual recount, auditing the registration and votes cast, the vote counts, and the electronic voting systems. At the conclusion of the audit, the auditor will issue a report detailing all findings discovered during the assessment.”

According to the announcement, the Senate spent months interviewing auditing companies to perform this forensic audit and they’ve chosen Cyber Ninjas to lead the three other groups doing the audit. So prepare for all of these groups to be smeared and scandalized by the media.

I think this is great news and fully expect this audit to find much more than just incidental fraud. I just hope it doesn’t take years to get it done.

Hunter Biden Claims His Father Chased Him Down During 2020 Intervention – Confirms His Addiction

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 20:45

In a new interview with CBS on Friday morning, Hunter Biden discussed his past struggles with substance abuse as he talked about the intervention his family allegedly had for him last year.

“In his interview with Mason, Biden described an emotional intervention his family staged at his father’s home in Wilmington during the 2020 presidential campaign,” CBS News reported. “After a tense confrontation, Biden stormed out of the house, only to be chased down the driveway by the future president.”

“And your father chased you?” reporter Anthony Mason asked Biden.

“Yeah, because I tried to get into the — I tried to go to my car, and my girls literally locked the door to my car and said, ‘Dad, dad, please, you can’t, no, no,'” Biden replied. “This was the hardest part of the book to write. And he grabbed me, in a hug, and grabbed me. He gave me a bear hug. And he said, he just cried, he said, ‘I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do. Please.’”

When asked what he thought when he heard his father say that, Biden responded, “I thought, I need to figure out a way to tell him that I’m going to do something so that I can go take another hit. That’s the only thing I could think. Literally, that’s how powerful. I don’t know of a force more powerful than my family’s love, except addiction.”

Biden is currently promoting his new memoir “Beautiful Things,” which he partly used to attack former President Donald Trump.

“I became a proxy for Donald Trump’s fear that he wouldn’t be re-elected,” Biden wrote in excerpts of the book obtained by The Guardian.

“He pushed debunked conspiracy theories about work I did in Ukraine and China, even as his own children had pocketed millions in China and Russia and his former campaign manager [Paul Manafort] sat in a jail cell for laundering millions more from Ukraine.”

“None of that matters in an up-is-down Orwellian political climate,” he continued. “Trump believed that if he could destroy me, and by extension my father, he could dispatch any candidate of decency from either party, all while diverting attention from his own corrupt behavior.”

CNN Host Don Lemon Claims ‘George Floyd Is Us’ – ‘Disgusting’ For People To Demonize Him

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 20:35

CNN host Don Lemon spoke out on Friday morning to give his thoughts on the Derek Chauvin trial for George Floyd’s death.

While appearing on the CNN show “New Day,” Lemon claimed that the video of Floyd’s death is “indicative” of how black men feel in this country when they have interactions with police. He then called on Americans to look past any problems he may have had by saying “George Floyd is us.”

“It is indicative of what especially black men in this country feel and have felt for centuries; that someone is on their neck all the time, living in a paranoia about racism. … Especially if they get into an encounter with police officers, will that police officer see my humanity? That’s what everybody is feeling. And that’s why it’s so traumatic, as you say,” Lemon said.

“I’ve said America is on trial. And I say yes, George Floyd is us,” the CNN host continued. “And I get so much pushback from saying, it’s not us because he had this in his past. … What does that have to do with his encounter with a police officer? What does that have to do with something that you did years ago? What does that have to do with anything? Why are you making that excuse? Why are you trying to justify in your mind the inhumane treatment of a person by bringing up everything that’s happened in their lives? You bring up all the negatives. What about the positives?”

Not stopping there, Lemon went on to slam those who have “demonized” Floyd for his addiction issues.

“It’s gross and disgusting,” he said emphatically. “And it really is unfathomable. You think about him being demonized for having addiction issues, when what we preach here and what America has been preaching is don’t stigmatize people who have addiction issues, especially around opioids, considering where we are with opioids right now, around the heroin abuse and addiction in this country.”

Floyd died in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota in May of last year. Chauvin was the officer who was caught on camera kneeling on his neck before his death.

Capitol attacker is Nation of Islam and ‘Farrakhan Follower’ Noah Green

Geller Report - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 20:33

He tried to ram a Capitol barricade and lunged at officers with a knife. The enemedia was all ready to proclaim that the perp was a right-wing Trump supporter and step up their suppression of our civil liberties. Instead, it’s one of their own, a Leftist Black Muslim America-hater. So expect this story to disappear from the news cycle quicker than the blink of an eye.

China’s Growing Firepower Casts Doubt on Whether U.S. Could Defend Taiwan

Geller Report - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 19:00

Now that since the deterrence of President Trump is gone China is on the move. If China eats Taiwan, it’s a different world. What is the U.S military doing to confront this massive challenge? They’re going woke. Very scary times.

China’s growing firepower casts doubt on whether U.S. could defend Taiwan

By NBC News, April 1, 2021

China’s massive arms buildup has raised doubts about America’s ability to defend Taiwan if a war broke out, reflecting a shifting balance of power in the Pacific where American forces once dominated, U.S. officials and experts say.

In simulated combat in which China attempts to invade Taiwan, the results are sobering and the United States often loses, said David Ochmanek, a former senior Defense Department official who helps run war games for the Pentagon at the RAND Corp. think tank.

In tabletop exercises with America as the “blue team” facing off against a “red team” resembling China, Taiwan’s air force is wiped out within minutes, U.S. air bases across the Pacific come under attack, and American warships and aircraft are held at bay by the long reach of China’s vast missile arsenal, he said.

“Even when the blue teams in our simulations and war games intervened in a determined way, they don’t always succeed in defeating the invasion,” Ochmanek said.

A war over Taiwan remains a worst-case scenario that officials say is not imminent. But China’s growing military prowess, coupled with its aggressive rhetoric, is turning Taiwan into a potential flashpoint between Beijing and Washington — and a test case for how the U.S. will confront China’s superpower ambitions.

The outgoing head of the U.S. military’s Indo-Pacific Command, Adm. Philip Davidson, warned senators this month that the U.S. is losing its military edge over China, and that Beijing could decide to try to seize control of Taiwan by force by 2027.

“We are accumulating risk that may embolden China to unilaterally change the status quo before our forces may be able to deliver an effective response,” the admiral told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“Taiwan is clearly one of their ambitions. … And I think the threat is manifest during this decade, in fact, in the next six years.”

U.S. intelligence analysts have warned for more than a decade that China’s military strength was progressing at a dramatic pace, and that America’s superiority was evaporating in the Pacific, Defense officials told NBC News. Only now has the message finally hit home, with simulated battles driving home the point.

“You bring in lieutenant colonels and commanders, and you subject them for three or four days to this war game. They get their asses kicked, and they have a visceral reaction to it,” Ochmanek said. “You can see the learning happen.”

Smugglers Drop Children Over Border Barrier, Democrats Still Silent On Matter

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 19:00

While top Democrats like AOC, Kamala Harris, and President Biden reassure the American people there is no crisis at the border, they themselves have yet to even visit the area to see it for themselves. VP Harris simply laughed at the idea of her visiting while AOC appears too busy making Instagram stories to bother with migrant children. But while the Democrats refuse to address the problem, stories like this next one show how innocent and deadly the border can be. 

On Tuesday night while most were sleeping, smugglers were busy trying to gain entry into the United States. Unfortunately, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection witnessed as smugglers scaled the 14-foot barrier only to drop two children over the side. Again, that is a 14-foot drop that both children, aged three and five, endured without any form of safety measures. Not even waiting to make sure they were safe and unharmed, the smugglers quickly disappeared back into the night. 

With the video of the incident going viral, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection released a statement saying, “Responding agents found the three-year-old and five-year-old Ecuadoran children and rendered aid to them. The two toddlers are sisters and both were alert when agents made contact with them. Agents contacted Emergency Medical Services and the toddlers were transported to a local hospital for precautionary reasons and further evaluation. The two girls were medically cleared and currently remain in Border Patrol temporary holding pending placement by Health and Human Services.”

On top of releasing a statement, El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria I. Chavez tweeted the incident with the caption, “Smugglers, under cover of night, scaled a 14 ft. border barrier and cruelly dropped 2 young children in the middle of the New Mexico desert. The girls, ages 3 & 5, were left miles from the nearest residence. Thank you STN Agents for rescuing these children!”

— Gloria I. Chavez (@USBPChiefEPT) March 31, 2021

Luckily, both children are safe and being taken care of, but Chavez wants the ruthless people that would throw children over the border. She told reporters, “We are currently working with our law enforcement partners in Mexico and attempting to identify these ruthless human smugglers so as to hold them accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”

Pres. Biden Supports Moving MLB All-Star Game To Punish GOP For New Election Laws

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 18:48

Instead of focusing on issues that really matter like the border crisis or the stagnant economy, President Biden is content stoking the age-old rival between Democrats and Republicans. Even though Biden was the one to call for unity among the parties and people, he appears to be doing the complete opposite as he encouraged the MLB All-Star game to relocate from Georgia due to the recent election laws that were passed. 

Making a rare appearance on ESPN, President Biden sat down to enjoy a handful of softball questions that were more than likely pre-picked. While going through the usual motions, Biden was asked about his thoughts on Tony Clark, the executive director of the MLB Players Association, who expressed moving the All-Star game to punish the GOP and Governor Brian Kemp for passing the new laws.  

Biden in ESPN interview says he would strongly support MLB relocating the all-star game from Atlanta over the Georgia law.pic.twitter.com/xGBzsFoD6e

— Christopher Cadelago (@ccadelago) April 1, 2021

Forgetting about unity and bipartisanship, Biden answered, “I think that today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that,” Biden responded. “People look to them, they’re leaders. Look at what’s happened with the NBA as well. Look at what’s happened across the board. The people who’ve been victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports and it’s just not right.”

Barely making a single mistake, Biden pressed harder on the issue that he called “Jim Crow on steroids”. 

“Imagine passing a law saying you cannot provide water or food for someone standing in line to vote, can’t do that? C’mon!” the president exclaimed. “Or you’re going to close a polling place at 5 o’clock when working people just get off? This is all about keeping working folks and ordinary folks that I grew up with from being able to vote.”

While Biden appears to be fighting a just cause, it should be noted that most of his claims about the new election laws in Georgia are simply – FALSE. Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler not only labeled Biden’s speech the “Four-Pinocchio Claim” but he also proved that voters will have access to “self-service water from an unattended receptacle” while they wait in line to vote. 

As for polls closing at 5 o’clock, that is another false statement. The main change to the current voting law is that every voter will have to show proper ID and it limits the number of drop-off boxes.

NBC Anchor Holt Urges Media To Lie

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 14:59

Leftists feel so comfortable in this political environment that they have cast away pretense and are now actively promoting left wing dishonesty to their peers.  NBC’s Lester Holt is front and center. Holt received accolades from media figures after telling reporters they don’t need to be fair or objective before determining the “truth.”

“I think it’s become clear that fairness is overrated … the idea that we should always give two sides equal weight and merit does not reflect the world we find ourselves in,” Holt said on Tuesday night at a media mutual onanism festival.

“That the sun sets in the west is a fact. Any contrary view does not deserve our time or attention,” Holt continued. “Decisions to not give unsupported arguments equal time are not a dereliction of journalistic responsibility or some kind of agenda, in fact, it’s just the opposite.”

Holt then insisted “providing an open platform for misinformation, for anyone to come say whatever they want, especially when issues of public health and safety are at stake, can be quite dangerous,” before declaring the duty of reporters is to be “fair to the truth.”

CNN anchor Don Lemon agrees. “So stop staying that we must respect Trump supporters who believe bulls— because it’s bulls— that you’ve been feeding them! The president and you, you’ve been feeding them the BS and now that they believe it, again, another self-fulfilling prophecy and feedback loop,” Lemon said.

“When the chief anchor of one of the major networks agrees that bothsidesing everything is bad practice, critics have finally won a point and they should celebrate,” NYU Bolshie Prof Jay Rosen tweeted. Rosen continued, “Someone like Lester Holt is a center of gravity among news workers and if he thinks it’s okay not to both sides everything that can influence thought and behavior across a lot of desks.”

But there was light in the darkness. “In a better world in which the mainstream major media had a history of fairness and non-partisanship, Holt’s point that journalism inherently involves filtering information might make sense. This is not such a better world, this is a world in which the mainstream major media wears its partisanship on its sleeve, manipulating the news cycle to the advantage of Democrats,” Cornell Law Prof William Jacobson told press. “In the real world, Holt’s advice simply justifies media political bias.”

Can Key Witness Exonerate Derek Chauvin?

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 14:45

The mob has Minneapolis by the throat and thus Derek Chauvin cannot get a fair trial there. If evidence acquits Chauvin, and there is a tox screen and other medical/autopsy evidence in his favor, various radical groups including Black Lives Matter have let it be known Minneapolis will burn. Nobody but these groups wants that. Morries Lester Hall may also not want to see that happen and that could be why he is taking the 5th.

If he talks and tells the truth he may clear Chauvin. Thus he can’t talk or the city will burn. It’s a choice between justice for Chauvin or shutting up and watching a possibly innocent law enforcement officer be railroaded. Hall knows what he’s doing is wrong. He’s doing it anyway. Well, at least he won’t lie for the prosecution. Which was probably the initial plan.

FNC: “A key witness who was with George Floyd on the day he died has informed the court that he will invoke the Fifth Amendment if asked to testify in Derek Chauvin’s murder trial. The Hennepin County Public Defender’s Office filed a notice Wednesday on behalf of Morries Lester Hall, 42, who was in the car with Floyd when police approached him for allegedly using a fake $20 bill at Cup Foods in Minneapolis.

“Mr. Morries Lester Hall, through undersigned counsel, hereby provides notice to all parties in this matter that if called to testify he will invoke his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination,’ said a notice filed by assistant public defender Adrienne Cousins. ‘Therefore, counsel for Mr. Hall respectfully moves this court to quash the subpoena … and release Mr. Hall from any obligations therein.’ An official said Hall initially gave a false name to officers after Floyd’s death. He then left Minneapolis and was tracked down in Texas and arrested due to outstanding warrants for felony possession of a firearm, felony domestic assault, and felony drug possession, the paper reported.”

“I’m a key witness to the cops murdering George Floyd, and they want to know my side. Whatever I’ve been through, it’s all over with now. It’s not about me,” Hall said. A vague statement that hides the truth. An innocent man could pay for it.

Tucker Carlson Shreds AOC As ‘Racist’ For Denying There’s a Border Crisis – Says She ‘Wants To Change The Population’

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 14:13

Fox News host Tucker Carlson lashed out at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday night after she claimed there isn’t a “crisis” at the U.S./Mexico border.

“This is not a surge. These are children, and they are not insurgents, and we are not being invaded. Which, by the way, is a white supremacist philosophy,” Ocasio-Cortez said, according to The Hill. “The idea that if another is coming in the population, that this is an invasion of who we are.”

Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on this in a later interview, according to The New York Post.

“This is not an invasion. US foreign policy has contributed to the destabilization of these regions … where the children are fleeing … We have decades of interventionist foreign policies that have contributed to this issue.”

Carson fired back by blasting Ocasio-Cortez as a “low-quality race baiter” who has no idea what she’s talking about when it comes to foreign policy and border security.

“Who cares what she thinks? She’s totally reckless. She’s a racist, openly,” he said on his Fox News show. “I think the key is though is to think clearly about what is best for the United States. Obviously, the border policy now is a disaster, to be fair, it’s been a disaster for a long time.’

“It doesn’t serve the interest of most Americans, and it won’t because people like that use the magic word, ‘racism,’ to cow the rest of the country into submission,” Carlson added, according to Mediaite. “She wants to change the population, she wants her party to be more powerful. I get it. But we’re allowing her and people like her to do that because we are afraid of being called names.”

Carlson went on to declare that Ocasio-Cortez is “someone whose opinion you shouldn’t care about,” and “I don’t care whatever-that-woman’s-name-is thinks, and no one should care what she thinks.”

Ocasio-Cortez was very critical of the situation at the border when Donald Trump was in office, regularly comparing his border facilities to concentration camps.

AOC Defends Democrats While Attacking The Border Crisis, Blames White Supremacy

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 14:07

There is no denying the growing crisis at the border. Even with the Democrats controlling the media, and hoping America will just look the other way while the border is overrun, stories and photos continue to pour online of the horrible conditions families and children are being forced to live in. Knowing they have no other option than to admit there is a problem, it appears the Democrats have picked the always gracious Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to explain what exactly is happening and how supposedly racism is to blame. 

Wanting to keep up with current trends, AOC decided to stream an Instagram Live video informing the people about the current situation at the Southern Border. She did this by first bashing anyone who claims there is a crisis taking place. She said, “Well, we’re talking about it. They just don’t like how we’re talking about it, because it’s not a border crisis; it’s an imperialism crisis; it’s a climate crisis; it’s a trade criticism, and also it’s a carceral crisis.”

Blaming the surge of illegal immigrants on everything and everybody but the people in charge was just the tip for AOC as she also condemned using the word “surge”. “Well, first of all, just — gut check: Stop. Anyone who’s using the term ‘surge’ around you, consciously, is trying to invoke a militaristic frame. And that’s a problem, because this is not a surge. These are children, and they are not insurgents, and we are not being invaded – which, by the way, is a white supremacist idea, philosophy: The idea that if another is coming in the population that this is an invasion of who we are.”

For those keeping up, AOC has now blamed mother nature, imperialism, and even white supremacy for a problem that never existed until Biden took office. During his first Press Conference, Biden even joked that so many people were crossing the border because he was a “nice guy”. 

As for the liberal icon that is AOC, she was adamant about visiting the border during the Trump Administration. She relentlessly took video and pictures, claiming the improper care of migrants, but now that a Democrat is in office – AOC seems too busy to visit the border she once fought so hard for. Maybe she will take the VP Harris approach of simply laughing off any questions about the border.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Proposes ‘Fire Fauci Act’

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 13:53

On Thursday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) proposed two pieced of legislation, one to “fully defund” Dr. Anthony Fauci and another to ban COVID-19 “vaccine passports.”

Greene presented the “Fire Fauci Act” and the “We Will Not Comply Act” during a morning interview in which she blasted Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, over the way he has handled the COVID-19 pandemic over the past year.

“Dr. Fauci has been running the show in this country, and that is not his role,” Greene said during a discussion with Republican strategist Stephen K. Bannon while appearing on his “War Room: Pandemic” podcast.

“He is not supposed to run our country,” Greene added, according to The Washington Times. “Dr. Fauci has been running our country, and he hasn’t been running it, he has been shutting it down with his ever-changing advice.”

Under the terms of Greene’s bill, Fauci’s salary would be lowered to $0 “until a new NIAID Administrator is confirmed by the Senate.” An investigation would also be launched to determine “what Fauci and the NIAID knew, when they knew it, what they spent money on and how the agency responded to the virus,” according to Forbes.

The “We Will Not Comply Act” would crack down on “vaccine passports,” a measure to verify vaccination status, by banning some businesses from “discriminating against a person based on their COVID-19 vaccine status” and allowing people to file lawsuits against companies who do.

In addition, the bill would “cut off federal funding for a vaccine mandate” on certain groups that include federal employees, students and those with religious objections. Greene’s bill would also prevent restrictions for the unvaccinated.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) trashed the bill, tweeting, “Below is an example of why Members of Congress need good staff. Helps prevent us from introducing stupid, nonsensical bills like the one below from @RepMTG.”

Greene is only in her first term in Congress, but she’s already living rent free in the heads of Democrats, who have been targeting her ever since she took office.

Biden Has Lost Saturday Night Live

LifeZette - Fri, 04/02/2021 - 13:51

There has been a rule for over twenty years at Saturday Night Live, attack Republicans and protect Democrats. And that especially goes for presidents. They hammered Bush the Younger as a warmonger, protected Obama as a saint, and got so childish and clumsy about Trump they became unwatchable. But now, the rule has changed. They are going after Joe Biden, but are protecting Kamala Harris. They can smell the transition in the wind.

Recently SNL made jokes at Biden’s expense centering on his falling incident on the steps of Air Force One and on other topics portraying Biden as confused and out of touch on issues. With Maya Rudolph playing a composed confident Harris, the message was unmistakable. As are other signs of a substitution plan being unfolded.

When any liberal or leftist is mocked by the entertainment industry that person is in trouble, as leftist pop culture mavens know the first steps of any political message or mass spin are always cultural. There have been liberal shows like the now defunct, or it might as well be, Daily Show which occasionally hilariously made fun of Democrats. But it was always in a gentle way and it focused on their befuddlement, never on their policies or motives. Those were considered pure.

It started in SNL’s first season in 1975 when Republican President Gerald Ford was labeled fair game. Ford, a college athlete and former male model, was tagged as clumsy and thus inept in office by a constant replaying of one or two of his pratfalls. Chevy Chase made his comic reputation portraying an oafish Ford, when Ford actually had the natural instincts of an athlete. But mocking the one or two moments cemented the doofus image in the country’s mind and in voter’s minds. Ford lost his presidential race in 1976.

In those days SNL still had more of a sense of humor than commitment to leftist ideology. So Jimmy Carter got it good from Dan Ackroyd. But when Reagan took over that changed.

The show went after Reagan almost as badly as they went after Trump. He was allegedly a warmonger racist senile hater of the poor. It visibly bothered SNL when he won in landslides. But then strangely, though they made fun of him, they had a soft spot for the next administration of Bush the Elder.

From there they also lightly made fun of Bill Clinton at first, but had a field day over the Lewinsky case. However, when Bush the Younger came into office in 2001, the show changed forever. Republicans were always to be villains and Democrats heroes. It loved Obama and Hillary and hated Trump. One problem. Lockstep ideology of any sort isn’t funny. There’s a temporary hiatus of it now. It will be back with a vengeance when Harris takes over for Biden.

“I am thrilled to continue working with FOX News Channel for the next five years,” Baier said afterwards, according to The Daily Caller. “It has been my home away from home for almost a quarter century.

Fox said in a press release that “Special Report” is up 53% overall in the ratings for total viewers and 21% for the key 25-54 age demographic.

On top of all that, Baier also serves at the network’s chief political anchor and has a show on Fox News Audio. He first joined Fox back in 1998, and he was the network’s first reporter in its Atlanta bureau. Throughout his time at Fox, Baier has covered presidential debates, co-moderated presidential election town halls, served at Fox’s White House correspondent and as its military and national security affairs reporter.

“Bret has masterfully covered some of the most consequential news stories of our time and we’re thrilled to have him continue his extraordinary journalism career at FOX News for many years to come,” Scott said in a statement.

Baier has additionally won various journalism awards, and aside from working at Fox, he’s written multiple New York Times best-selling books. Fans of his work will undoubtedly be very happy to know that it seems that he will continue to appear on Fox for many years to come.
