According to a Palm Springs police report, Ricardo Green, 41, called 911 on the evening of Feb. 11 to say that he came home from work and found his stepfather, Melvin Weller, 62, lying on the floor in a pool of blood. Green said Weller appeared to be dead.
When officers arrived, they located the victim on the floor, surrounded by a pool of blood that covered more than half of the kitchen.
Officers noticed blood spatters and smears on the walls, kitchen cabinets and counters. A couple of knives and a meat cleaver were in the kitchen sink.

The latest attacks add to a mounting toll that threaten to derail the city’s economic recovery. Major crimes in transit are up 65% this year – an average of one victim every four hours, around the clock.
CDC Officials Admit Agency Has Withheld Critical Covid Information From the Public, Including Data About Breakthrough Infections, Over Fears of “Vaccine Hesitancy”
The critical information would go a long way towards figuring out an end to the pandemic, but the agency has purposefully suppressed the information from the public over fears that it would be “misinterpreted” and cause “vaccine hesitancy.”
Within the data that has been withheld by the CDC are detailed information about breakthrough cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, which the agency has been collecting since the beginning of the vaccine rollout, according to officials who spoke to the NYT.

“There will be a lane open for emergency vehicles, they’ll be able to get in and out and all that,” Bolus replied. “We will not compromise anybody’s safety or health, one way or the other. As far as if they can’t get to work, geez that’s too bad.”

In response to the impending protests in the capital, D.C. police have already limited time off for officers and put nearly 500 officers on civil disturbance units daily beginning Wednesday, the station reported.
Explicit Los Angeles jailhouse recordings of Hannah Tubbs, the 26-year-old trans child molester who received a slap on the wrist last month after pleading guilty to molesting a 10-year-old in 2014, depict her admitting it was wrong to attack a little girl but gloating over the light punishment.
She boasted that nothing would happen to her after she pleaded guilty due to Democrat District Attorney George Gascon’s policies and laughed that she won’t have to go back to prison or register as a sex offender. She also made explicit remarks about the victim that are unfit to print.
Tubbs pleaded guilty last month to the cold case attack, which took place in women’s restroom at a Denny’s restaurant, when the suspect was two weeks shy of 18 and identified as a male named James Tubbs. After being arrested roughly eight years after the crime, Tubbs began identifying as a woman, according to prosecutors.
Not a single person wore a protective facemask in the videos, which were taken down less than an hour after Fox News requested comment from Cantrell.
The event comes after Cantrell reinstated the city’s indoor mask mandate for all indoor public settings, including schools, which is still in effect through Mardi Gras Day on March 1.
In a statement to Fox News, Cantrell spokesman Beau Tidwell admitted that there was not a “perfect adoption of the guidelines in every instance” over the weekend.
“The mask guidelines and the vaccination requirement will remain in effect thru Mardi Gras,” he said.
In the fiscal year ending in 2021, some 100,000 Americans died due to drug overdose, according to data collected by the Centers for Disease Control. Fentanyl and other synthetic opioids accounted for roughly two-thirds of those overdoses.
Covid lockdowns led to a roughly 30 percent increase in drug deaths, driven by depression, financial hardship, drug use in isolation, less timely 911 calls, and less access to naloxone.
Why is this happening? The answer has to do with two countries: Mexico and China. A federal report released in early February documents that Mexico is now the “dominant source” of the country’s fentanyl supply and synthetic opioids.
Between 2014 and 2019, 70 to 80 percent of fentanyl seized by federal authorities came from China. The precursor chemicals used in Mexican labs still come predominantly from China.

Former President Donald Trump’s social media app that he hopes will rival Twitter launched Monday as he seeks a new digital stage to rally his supporters and fight Big Tech limits on speech a year after he was banned from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
His Truth Social app was offered for download from the Apple App Store to a limited number of subscribers who had preordered, with others added to a waiting list to be given access over the next 10 days.
The site encountered technical glitches shortly after launch, with reports that subscribers were shut out for hours. Others had trouble signing on. The site is not expected to be open to anyone who wants to download it until next month.

Analysts told us the chaotic withdrawal would embolden our adversaries, including Russia.
Today, we talk with the Special Inspector General on Afghanistan, John Sopko. Some of his warnings about what was likely to go wrong in Afghanistan were only recently declassified.
The former Georgia senator is challenging Gov. Brian Kemp, R-Ga., in May’s GOP primary. The winner of the primary is expected to challenge Democrat Stacey Abrams—who Kemp defeated in 2018— in November’s gubernatorial election.
The 45th president said in a statement, “Great to see that David Perdue is running for Governor of Georgia. He is a Conservative fighter who isn’t afraid of the Radical Left and is the only candidate in Georgia who can beat Stacey ‘The Hoax’ Abrams in November.”
Despite being Republican, Kemp has been called out on multiple occasions by Trump and other GOP members for failing to properly address Georgia election discrepancies that took place during the 2020 presidential election.

The missiles in the photo have visible yellow and brown bands that indicate a live warhead and the live rocket motor, respectively.
The pair of F-16s reportedly operated over Romania for some time before returning to their base.
Democracies around the world “don’t seem to be caring” about the “scandal” of the Trudeau government’s treatment of a “peaceful protest,” according to author Douglas Murray.
“I mean, the Prime Minister has used laws which are meant to be used in wartime and he’s used them against a peaceful protest,” Mr Murray said.
“He slandered the truckers; he slandered the supporters of the truckers … And now he’s moved to the next phase, not just sending in the police to very brutally end the protest in Ottawa.
“This is absolutely totalitarian behaviour that has been going on from the Trudeau government.”
Members of the United States’ 82nd Airborne Division set up camp in Poland’s south-east, close to the border with Ukraine on Monday (February 21), Reuters footage showed.
The mainstream media — especially in Canada — wants you to believe the truckers’ ‘Freedom Convoy’ has been dangerous.
But one journalist, Rebel News’ Lincoln Jay, tells Glenn the scene he’s witnessed for weeks now has been anything but.
He says the truckers created a ‘family atmosphere’ in Ottawa, provided food for the needy, and even shoveled snow on city sidewalks.
In fact, the only chaos Lincoln saw during the three weeks he covered the protest occurred when police arrived to clear the scene: ‘I’ve never seen such police enforcement in MY LIFE.’
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau insisted at a news conference on Monday that his government still needs the unprecedented emergency powers he demanded this month even though police violently removed the Freedom Convoy protesters from Ottawa and no active Freedom Convoy protests are currently occurring.
“This state of emergency is not over. There continue to be real concerns about the coming days,” Trudeau said on Monday, claiming there were signs the Freedom Convoy truckers could regroup and return to Ottawa.
“People [are] out there indicating that they are ready to blockade, to continue their illegal occupations to disrupt Canadians’ lives. We feel that this measure needs to remain in place,” he said.

David, a listener from Maryland, calls the show with the same question many Americans are wondering today:
Should I risk it all to take a stand against tyranny, mandates, and our loss of freedom?
David is the perfect caller for this time, Glenn says, because he asks this question not with bravado but with heart and truth. As Canadian truckers face serious consequences for their peaceful protest up north, reality is setting in for millions of Americans.
Everybody must make the right decision for themselves, Glenn says, but one statement remains true: not to stand IS to stand.
You are making a commitment if you just stay silent.
