Imagine sitting at a home & a parachutist crashes through the roof.

“The parachutist was conscious but stunned with complaints of pain but no visible serious injuries,” the department’s statement read. “The occupants of the residence were not home at the time and therefore were uninjured.”

Investigators found the soldier’s parachute failed to fully deploy during “maneuvers by a group training at Camp Roberts.”

All other troops who participated in the jump safely landed in the designated field and no other incidents were reported.

Prior to the crash landing, several locals watched the soldier spiraling out of control in mid-air, KSBY reported.

Federal health officials are investigating the possibility that Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine might slightly raise the risk of a rare neurological complication known as Guillain-Barré syndrome, a spokesperson from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a statement to CNN on Monday.

The Washington Post reported the FDA is preparing to announce a new warning that links the vaccine to the syndrome.

“GBS is a neurological disorder in which the body’s immune system damages nerve cells, causing muscle weakness or in the most severe cases paralysis.

Each year in the United States, an estimated 3,000 to 6,000 people develop GBS; it is typically triggered by a respiratory or gastrointestinal infection. Most people fully recover from GBS,” the CDC spokesperson said.

“There is a process,” Grenell said on Saturday of the allegations.

“Somebody asked who this U.S. person was. And they went through the process of unmasking, and then somebody came in and said to this person … it’s Tucker Carlson from Fox News. That should have never been shared with anybody.”

“There are two violations there,” Grenell said. “And somebody should lose their security clearance, and possibly be prosecuted.”

Grenell said that if the allegations are true, the individual could face federal prosecution.

Crime forces Jersey Shore town to close beach, boardwalk early

An uptick in crime, including the vandalism of property as unruly crowds of young people have gathered on the beach, has forced one upscale town in New Jersey to close its boardwalk overnight in order to hand back police powers restricted by Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy’s stance on cannabis use. 

Avalon Mayor Martin Pagliughi on Friday signed an executive order extending restrictions issued under the coronavirus state of emergency keeping closed the beach daily between the hours of 9 p.m. and 4 a.m., and the boardwalk daily between the hours of 11 p.m. and 4 a.m.

In issuing the extension, the mayor cited “unsafe and disruptive behavior,” witnessed as juveniles have been congregating on the beaches and boardwalk, regularly vandalizing public property and leaving behind excessive litter and debris.

Conservatives slammed the FBI for encouraging Americans to report their family members.

Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) tweeted: “These people protected Hillary, abused NSA surveillance databases against Americans, used known, unreliable DNC-funded propaganda to spy on Trump, perpetuated the Russia hoax, & lied to the FISC repeatedly. And now they tell you that you should spy on your family.”

Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell tweeted: “This is outrageous. The @FBI has a growing credibility problem and this type of sinister snitching is clearly unhelpful. Why hasn’t the @fbi made more progress finding the BLM rioters from last summer? Why hasn’t the @fbi leadership apologized for the Russian hoax they pushed?

Texas Democrats flee the STATE on a private jet with a crate of beer to stop Republicans passing voting rights bills

Texas State Rep. Julie Johnson posted a selfie or her and other Democratic lawmakers in a coach bus as they fled the state on private jets for Washington D.C. to prevent Texas Republicans from passing voting integrity legislation.
Texas State Rep. Julie Johnson posted a selfie or her and other Democratic lawmakers in a coach bus as they fled the state on private jets for Washington D.C. to prevent Texas Republicans from passing voting integrity legislation.

At least 58 Democratic lawmakers left Austin to fly to Washington D.C. on two private jets chartered for the occasion and will use the time in the nation’s Capitol to rally support for federal voting legislation. 

‘We are now taking flight to our nation’s Capitol. We are living on borrowed time in Texas. We need Congress to act now to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act to protect Texans – and all Americans – from the Trump Republicans’ nationwide war on democracy,’ they added. 

Julie Johnson, a Democrat in the Texas House of Representatives, posted a selfie on a coach bus that drove a group of lawmakers to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Featured in the image was a case of Miller Lite beer. 

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday it was ‘certainly’ possible that some administration officials would meet with the runaway Democrats. 

Omar and Tlaib Mum on Whether Palestinian Aid Should Be Conditioned on Human Rights Abuses

Reps. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) and and Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) both say U.S. aid to Israel should be conditioned on the Jewish state’s treatment of the Palestinians, which they claim violates international law.

Neither congresswoman’s office responded, however, to Washington Free Beacon inquiries about their position on conditioning U.S. aid to the Palestinians in the wake of the Palestinian government’s murder of an anti-corruption activist last month.

After Hamas fired thousands of missiles at Israeli citizens in May, sparking the worst violence in years, Omar and Tlaib called for cutting off U.S. aid to Israel.

They applauded efforts by the Biden administration to send millions in U.S. aid to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip as part of postwar reconstruction efforts.

Dems Advance Taxpayer-Funded Abortion Through Committee

House Democrats are one step closer to achieving President Joe Biden’s goal of establishing taxpayer-funded abortions nationwide.

A funding bill proposal released Sunday from the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies subcommittee would repeal the Hyde Amendment—a decades-long policy that prevents federal tax dollars from funding abortion.

The White House proposed repealing the amendment in its budget introduced in May.

Biden, who supported the Hyde Amendment as a senator, flipped to oppose the policy when running for president in 2019.

What’ll happen if GOVERNMENT overtakes CREDIT SCORE reporting?

Petition to Recall Socialist Los Angeles Councilwoman Approved for Circulation

The petition must garner 27,405 valid signatures of qualified registered voters of Council District 4, which Raman represents, to be presented to voters. That number reflects 15 percent of registered voters in the district.

The deadline for filing the petition is Nov. 4.

Recall organizers accuse Raman, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), of enabling crime by working to cut funding to the police and supporting homeless encampments, which have “expanded exponentially” in the district since she was sworn into office in January.

Organizers describe themselves as “a district-wide coalition of residents demanding a return to sanity in CD4.”

Swalwell busted shirtless with a camel after Middle Eastern special interest group affair goes public

The U.S.-Qatar Business Council, the outlet noted, paid over $84,000 for the lawmakers’ visit to the country, which also included Democratic Reps. Luis Correa and Sara Jacobs of California and Republican Lisa McClain of Michigan.

The trip was approved by the House Ethics Committee, as congressional rules dictate trips paid for by private groups must be.

While it is legal for congressmen to be whisked away on such luxury forays, the trips do often raise what Business Insider called an “ethical grey area” due to the potential for greater influence from more well-lined advocacy groups, and how money is spent is also subject to certain restrictions.

For example, House rules ban spending on entertainment for lawmakers — such as, say, a camel ride.

Now, if the Qatari trade group did not, in fact, pay for the camel ride, it’s still rather pertinent to know if perhaps the American taxpayers paid for the camel ride or any accommodations to enable the Swalwell-Gallego crew to take said excursion, such as an official security detail.

The Georgia Reform Law: Who Wants Fair Elections?

Republican national spokesman Paris Dennard joined SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Saturday to discuss the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) ongoing election integrity efforts and the Democrats’ fear of losing “power and control.”

“It defies what the narrative of the mainstream media would have Americans believe,” Dennard said of a poll which shows support for voter ID requirements and other election integrity measures.

In noting results from the poll, which show immense support for cleaning up voter rolls and eliminating ballot harvesting, Dennard said, “We feel this issue is important.”

“Future elections are critical, especially the midterm elections, and our council’s office has really been fighting back on all of these power grabs that Democrats have been pushing this past election,” he added.

Asked how he feels as a black conservative when people label forms of voter ID to be racist, Dennard said, “It’s just another lie from the left.” He also said the Democrats are pushing “fake rage” on things.

Georgian Police Seize Corpse Of Journalist Injured During LGBT Protest

Georgian police have seized the corpse of a TV cameraman who was injured on July 5 from his Tbilisi apartment.

The police took the action despite his family’s refusal of a state-led forensic autopsy and examination.

Lekso Lashkarava was found dead in his apartment on July 11, prompting protests calling for the government to resign.

He was one of 53 journalists brutally beaten by violent, right-wing mobs protesting against LGBT pride events​.

U.S. Repeats ‘Genocide’ Accusations Against China

The United States has repeated genocide allegations against China over its treatment of Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and members of Xinjiang’s other indigenous, mostly Muslim, ethnic groups.

The message came alongside additional sanctions warnings against Burma, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and South Sudan over ethnic cleansing in their respective conflicts.

All were contained in materials sent by the Biden administration as part of the State Department’s annual report to Congress on the prevention of genocides and atrocities.

China insists such camps are “vocational education centers” aimed at helping people steer clear of terrorism.

U.N. Rights Chief Demands Reparations for ‘Slavery, Colonial Rule, and Racism’

Former Chilean Socialist President Michelle Bachelet presented to the U.N. Human Rights Council a report she hopes will change the definition of racism and highlight its impact.

It comes after her intervention last month calling on the world to immediately dismantle systemic racism against people of African descent and “make amends” to the oppressed while groups like Black Lives Matter should receive “funding, public recognition and support.”

Others have also joined her demands for massive financial redistributions to address the issues of the past.


Decolonise Covid? Top University Claims Study of Viruses is Rooted in ‘White Supremacy’

The alma mater of the Chief Medical Officer for England Chris Whitty, who has led the government’s scientific response to the coronavirus, has vowed to reform its curriculum in order to make the study of tropical diseases “anti-racist”.

A guide issued to staff at the LSHTM told staff that they should examine how they benefitted from colonialism and racism if they are “white, middle-class, able-bodied, cis-heterosexual, European or North American, and do not have to worry about our immigration status.”

The guide, which was seen by The Telegraph, went on to warn graduates against spreading “Eurocentric” scientific knowledge discovered by “white, male” experts and staff have been told to “de-privilege white European and North American men” who can, they claim, be seen as “white saviours”.

Israel to Withhold $184m from Palestinian Authority over Pay-for-Slay

The PA transferred NIS 597 million ($182.82 million) in “indirect support for terror in 2020,” a report presented on Sunday morning to the security cabinet by Defense Minister Benny Gantz said.

“Pursuant to the approval of the report, these funds will be frozen on a monthly basis out of the payments that Israel transfers to the Palestinian Authority,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement.

As Breitbart reported, PA President Mahmoud Abbas last month ordered that the family of a Palestinian terrorist who murdered two Israelis be paid $42,000 and be given new houses.

That marked the first high-profile payments to terrorist families since the Biden administration took office, running counter to claims made by senior Palestinian officials the policy would be revisited as part of an effort to rebuild severed ties with Washington.
