“Every single influencer person on the planet can come there. You’re going to have a platform to speak out,” Lindell announced last week on Charlie Kirk’s podcast.

“We’re launching this big platform so all the voices of our country can come back and start telling it like it is again,” he added.

Lindell said that with his unnamed social media website, “you will not need YouTube. You won’t need these places … it will be where everything can be told, because we’ve got to get our voices back. People will be able to talk and not walk on eggshells.”

Elaborating further, Lindell said that his social media website will launch in “four to five weeks” but did not elaborate on the nature of the website or how it would function.

Peaster Independent School District has had no distancing, no required face masks, and no mandatory quarantines since school started last August, KTVT-TV reported Monday.

The students have had a “100% normal school experience” this school year – nothing has been canceled and no one has been quarantined.

“And the kids in Peaster, Texas, have thrived,” Superintendent Lance Johnson told the outlet.

It all goes back to a decision last year that virtual schooling would not be successful for this community, KTVT said.

According to Johnson, the teachers, school board, and community “stood in solidarity to … do what is best for kids — and what’s best for kids is having them in school in front of that teacher learning in a traditional school model.”

Michigan: Muslim Instagrammer Harasses Jews in Kosher Shop

According to the Jerusalem Post Friday, Dulla Mulla “went to a Jewish-owned kosher store in Detroit, Michigan and harassed Jewish patrons by showing them a picture on his phone of a Palestinian flag and the words ‘Free Palestine’ written on it and recording their reactions for his newest video.”

None of the patrons would say it, which young Dulla Mulla took as a sign of their moral failing. On his YouTube page he lamented under the video:

“The words ‘Free Palestine’ couldn’t even come out of the Zionist Jews mouth,” along with a broken heart emoji and “Palestine” written in Arabic.

Dulla Mulla didn’t get the response he clearly expected, and complained about all the direct messages (DM) he was getting pointing out that being a self-righteous bully was not a good look:

A 75-year-old Asian American man was robbed, shoved on his daily walk. He’s ‘seriously hurt,’ advocates say.

The senior, whom police have not identified, was seriously injured, Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce President Carl Chan, who has been in contact with the man’s family, told The Washington Post.

Late on Tuesday, Oakland police arrested an unnamed suspect in connection with the incident, the department confirmed to The Post. Police described the incident as a “violent attack.”

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf (D) said authorities would investigate whether the crime was “racially motivated.”

The case is the latest in a string of racist attacks and harassment against Asian American seniors in the Bay Area, some of which have turned fatal.

Last month, an 84-year-old Thai man died days after he was violently shoved to the ground during his morning walk. Earlier this year, at least three Asian American seniors walking through Oakland’s Chinatown were assaulted.

Vindel had listed the bike for $2,700 on Facebook Marketplace. “Mr. Vindel never returned from that transaction,” Sheriff Joseph Lopinto told reporters.

Vindel’s family reported him missing after they were unable to contact him for several hours.

Investigators found messages between Vindel and Harvey about the sale, which led deputies to the apartment complex, Lopinto said. Vindel’s dirt bike was located in one of the patios.

Deputies also made contact with Harvey at the apartment complex. He admitted to shooting Vindel during questioning, the sheriff said.

Harvey had driven Vindel’s car back to New Orleans and abandoned the vehicle with the 29-year-old’s body inside, according to investigators. He then rode the dirt bike back to the apartment complex in Harvey.

US veteran ‘grossly neglected’ and treated ‘without honor,’ says daughter of NY nursing home victim

Robert Nieves - a 70-year-old United States veteran - became one of the more than 15,000 to lose their lives after contracting COVID-19 at a New York nursing home.
Robert Nieves – a 70-year-old United States veteran – became one of the more than 15,000 to lose their lives after contracting COVID-19 at a New York nursing home.

In an interview with Fox News, his daughter Kara Kramer described her father as, “a very happy man full of life.”

“He loved family life. He loved the Lord. Sharing God’s word was probably the biggest happiness in his life,” she lovingly recalled.

Nieves was one of over 15,000 nursing home residents who died in the wake of the New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo administration’s March 25 directive that barred nursing homes from refusing COVID-infected patients.

“He was grossly neglected,” said Kramer who claimed Cuomo’s executive order was “like an open ticket for that facility to neglect our family, our loved ones, our veterans that served our country.”

Hawaii’s governor, David Ige, declared an emergency in the US state after heavy rains brought floods, landslides and fear of dam failures, and authorities ordered the evacuation of several thousand people from communities threatened by rising waters.

The move came after a dam overflowed on the island of Maui, forcing evacuations and destroying homes, with the dam’s “unsatisfactory” condition leading to it being scheduled for removal this year, the land department has said.

“The emergency proclamation makes state general funds available that can be used quickly and efficiently to help those impacted by the severe weather,” Ige said on Tuesday.

The Honolulu department of emergency management directed people to leave Haleiwa, a community of a few thousand people, to the north of state capital, Honolulu.

About 4,000 have left the area, according to KITV4. Rick Blangiardi, the mayor of Honolulu, warned the flooding near the city was “life-threatening”.

“This report about the handling of the 2020 elections in the City of Green Bay shows Mayor Genrich ceded his responsibility to safeguard the integrity of our elections to an outside, partisan organization and I am calling on him to resign from office immediately,” Roth tweeted.

Roth’s tweet comes during a renewed call from Republican lawmakers in the state to investigate the handling of the elections.

The investigation stems from one county clerk who claims the central counting location was “tainted by the influence of a person working for an outside organization affecting the election,” according to Fox 11 News.


Biden Executive Order Requires Taxpayers to Fund Gender Transition Surgeries

In January, President Joe Biden issued an executive order that would allow transgender individuals to serve in the military — reversing a policy implemented by former President Donald Trump.

But deep in the language of that order was a clause that read, “The Secretary of Defense also concluded that it was appropriate to create a process that would enable service members to take steps to transition gender while serving.”

Thus, the order requires “establishing a process by which transgender service members may transition gender while serving.” Officials were given 60 days to implement the Jan. 25 order.

To that end, newly appointed Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin promised in a statement released the same day his goal is that “all medically-necessary transition related care authorized by law is available to all Service members.”

“While America faces rising threats from around the world, it’s obvious that Joe Biden is only interested in using our military to fight one war: the culture’s.”

The Trump administration sought out criminal sex offenders who are in the U.S. illegally and moved to deport them.

But Biden first “canceled Operation Talon, which targeted sex offenders here in the United States illegally and now they’ve released guidance, which is basically releasing into our streets, serious criminal offenders,” Moody said.

“They’re canceling retainers and requiring our law enforcement leaders to release them back into our state,” she said.

“And this includes heroin traffickers, people that are breaking into homes – you know use of a firearm with some of these felonies.

One inmate, Loveson Pierre, was convicted of 18 counts of burglary and four charges of grand theft but was exempted from deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.


A Racial Conspiracy Theorist Has Been Confirmed as HUD Secretary, and That’s Not Even the Worst Part

Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH), has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve as Joe Biden’s secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

In 2015, she pleaded for leniency for Lance Mason, a former Ohio state legislator, who had beaten his then-wife in front of their children.

Mason got out of jail after serving nine months and later murdered his ex-wife in 2018.

In 2019, on the floor of the House of Representatives, Fudge read a letter from a constituent who called Donald Trump supporters “racist,” or “dumb.”

Fudge is also a racial conspiracy theorist with a history of spouting wacko ideas.

In April 2020, she made the ridiculous claim during a Biden campaign live stream rally that the COVID-19 pandemic proves that America is systemically racist.

In the wake of the death of George Floyd last spring, Fudge also seemed to encourage the violence and rioting that resulted.

The announcement comes as the Biden administration faces an influx of unaccompanied migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Established in 2014 under President Barack Obama, the Central American Minors Program would allow certain minors from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to reunite with a parent or parents lawfully in the U.S.

The State Department said it will first process eligible applicants closed when President Donald Trump’s administration terminated the program in 2017, and then begin accepting new applications.

More than 3,200 unaccompanied migrant children are being housed in Customs and Border Protection holding facilities, NBC News reported Tuesday. Nearly half of the children have been held in CBP holding cells beyond the three-day legal limit.

About 9,000 unaccompanied migrant children crossed the border in February overall, according to government data reviewed by NBC News.

Greene said that “$1.9 trillion in spending is reckless, irresponsible and the wrong thing to do.”

“We still have $1 trillion set aside for COVID relief in spending.

There is no need to enslave the American people, our children, our grandchildren, our great-great-grandchildren and generations going forward in more debt,” she said.

“We’re at $28 trillion in debt. This Congress is ramming through unbelievable things at a rapid pace. This must be stopped.

We have to give pause and consideration to what we’re doing. This is a waste of money, and a complete waste of time.

Reopening America is a much better way to go.”

Mexican government fears Biden admin policies fueling illegal immigration, organized crime: report

The Wednesday report from Reuters outlined concerns from Mexican officials over the new president’s immigration policies as apprehensions at the southern border hit a 15-year high in February.

Specifically, Mexico is concerned about the policies that have broadened support for migrants who are gang and violence victims as well as the easing of the legalization process.

Mexican officials are also concerned about Biden rolling back President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policies. such as the policy that deported detained migrants to Central America.

The report also revealed that the gangs involved in facilitating illegal immigration are looking at the policies “incentiviz[ing] migration” and adjusting their modus operandi for smuggling accordingly.

What Media Won’t Tell You About the COVID Relief Bill (Pt. 2)| Dana Perino | POLITICS | Rubin Report

In this clip Dana shares why she thinks the COVID-19 relief bill is a perfect example of corrupt politicians taking advantage of a crisis.

She reveals some of the specifics of the so-called “American rescue plan” that the news media ignores that proves why the desire to “drain the swamp” was so strong.

Most attention is on how much of a stimulus check the average American will get, while ignoring the many examples of political corruption in the bill.

She also wonders how much longer the never ending money printing and expansion of the money supply can last before the laws of economics catch up with our scary levels of public debt.

Russia slows down Twitter for not removing ‘illegal content’

Twitter users in Russia will need to practice patience every time they visit the website. Roskomnadzor, the country’s communications authority, has announced that it’s slowing down Twitter’s speed for failing to remove illegal content and materials with prohibited information.

The decision comes shortly after Russia sued Twitter, Google, Facebook and other websites for allegedly failing to delete posts urging children to take part in illegal protests over the sentencing received by Alexei Navalny, a prominent Vladimir Putin critic.

However, Roskomnadzor’s announcement didn’t mention those posts in its announcement.

Instead, it cited tweets containing child pornography and drug use, as well as posts inciting minors to commit suicide as its reason for the move.

The regulator said it has sent Twitter over 28,000 requests to remove illegal content since 2017 and that 3,168 materials with prohibited information still remain on the platform.

It put emphasis on tweets calling for minors to commit mass suicide on March 3rd, which the website allegedly didn’t remove.

Richard Pusey, 42, was in his Porsche on a Melbourne freeway when he was pulled over by four officers for allegedly speeding. The officers were then struck by a passing truck that had veered out of its lane — all four died. 

Pusey avoided the crash but he filmed the dying officers for more than three minutes, which he shared with his friends, according to the BBC.

At one point he stood over and taunted a female police officer, who was pinned under the truck, the report said.

“There you go, amazing, absolutely amazing. All I wanted to do was go home and have some sushi and now you f—ed my f—ing car,” Pusey said, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Victoria’s police minister called his comments, “completely sickening.”

Pusey, a mortgage broker, fled the scene and was arrested at his home after the crash. He was initially charged with speeding, drug possession and reckless conduct offenses.

European Parliament aims to make the EU an LGBTQ ‘freedom zone’

Lawmakers claim the resolution’s intent is simply to “promote and protect the enjoyment of all human rights by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons,” though conservatives will likely view the move as an affront to traditional values and an unnecessary exercise of power.

The resolution comes largely in response to recent developments in one of EU’s member states, Poland, where scores of local communities have set up symbolic resolutions declaring themselves free from “LGBT ideology,” the Associated Press reported.

Conservative leaders in the predominantly Catholic nation have expressed concerns over the growth of the ideology of late, with Polish President Andrzej Duda even having compared its effects to that of communist oppression.

As of February, nearly 100 municipalities in Poland, or one-third of the country, had declared themselves “LGBT-free zones.”
