‘She Is A Nazi’ Trends On Censorship Laden Twitter After MTG’s Recent Comments About Christianity

Following a handful of interviews where Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene made references to people embracing “American nationalism” and “Christian nationalism,” the leftists on Twitter put in some overtime on the platform to have the phrase “She is a Nazi” reach trending level this week.

Rep. Greene had managed to spark a Twitter-trending phrase of “She is a Nazi” after videos of her mentioning “American nationalism” and “Christian nationalism” were erroneously conflated with some kind of endorsement or tacit approval of Nazism, which is not of course, either American or Christian nationalism.

While speaking with reporter Tayler Hansen, Rep. Greene stated that the Republican party should be looking to embrace Christian nationalist ideals, saying, “We need to be the party of nationalism, and I’m a Christian, and I say it proudly, we should be Christian nationalists.”

Minneapolis precinct struck by gunfire, 3 suspects in custody after barrage of bullets

A vehicle containing an unknown number of people was driving in the Minneapolis Police Department’s 4th Precinct parking lot in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Officers in the area heard the sound of gunfire and “the sound of bullets passing by them” before they took cover and observed the vehicle taking off out of the lot. The police officers, who were standing outside the precinct in the parking lot, were not harmed.

After a brief pursuit, the police caught up to the suspected vehicle, and two suspects attempted to flee. Police caught both suspects and a third who had hid nearby.

“Two adult males fled on foot from the vehicle. Officers caught and arrested both adult males. A gun was recovered. A third male was located hiding in the area. He was arrested and a second gun was recovered,” the MPD told Fox News.

Aaron Joseph Trout, 31, of Glennie, was arrested Friday and charged with one count of murder in connection to the suspected beating death of a two-year-old girl, who was not his daughter. 

Michigan State Police were asked by the Alpena Police Department for assistance with the investigation after a woman was dropped off at a hospital Friday morning seeking medical attention for the toddler. 

After investigators identified the girl’s residence, Trout was identified as a suspect. 

lcona County Prosecutor Tom Weichel told Alpena News that Trout likely dropped the woman and girl at the hospital and then fled the area. He said it appeared the child sustained fatal injuries several days prior before being brought to the hospital, but the results of the autopsy remained pending. 

Man wearing ankle monitor robs Target store as security does nothing

The man, wearing a mask, appeared to walk around the store filling a large sack with stolen items as a Target security employee followed him. The incident is only the latest in a nationwide trend of individuals stealing from stores with apparent impunity.

Footage shows the unidentified man entering a wine and beer aisle, loading up his already nearly full bag with a bottle of wine. The bag makes a solid clinking noise as he shoulders it and moves on to find something that might pair well with the wine.

The National Retail Federation announced in late 2021 that organized retail crime costs companies roughly $700,000 per $1 billion in sales.

Thieves have also targeted more high-end retailers in recent months. Footage shows smash-and-grab looters stealing everything they could from a Louis Vuitton store in November 2021. The entire incident lasted less than a minute.

The New Haven Register reports that one day after officials promoted the passage of the Connecticut Clean Air Act, one of the state-run electric buses burst into a massive inferno. The CTtransit bus caught on fire in a Hamden parking lot on Saturday morning and resulted in two workers and a firefighter being sent to the hospital.

Hamden fire officials said: “Lithium ion battery fires are difficult to extinguish due to the thermal chemical process that produces great heat and continually reignites.” Two transit workers were hospitalized as a precaution after being exposed to the smoke and a firefighter was taken to the hospital for heat exhaustion.

The bus was delivered in December and began service in January according to CTtransit spokesperson Josh Rickman. 

FNC’s Carlson: ‘Drugs Are Not the Answer to Every Human Problem’ — ‘Possible that Pfizer Is Not the Solution’

https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2022/07/26/fncs-carlson-drugs-are-not-the-answer-to-every-human-problem-possible-that-pfizer-is-not-the-solution/

Monday on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson laid out some examples of the unintended consequences of some pharmaceuticals to warn against the country’s dependency on drugs to cure every ailment.

The FNC host said those unintended consequences were disrupting human behavior and potentially causing problems for society.

Over the past 25 years, opioids have destroyed entire regions of the country, mostly rural areas, places populated by the people who built and fed this country for generations.

Hundreds of thousands of them have died from opioid, and they’re still dying, more than 100,000 drug ODs just last year, mostly from fentanyl.

Wellington Police Officer Shoots Man Advancing Towards Officers With a Knife

The Wellington Police Department released bodycam footage of an officer shooting a man advancing towards officers with a knife.

On July 23 at 6:16 pm, Wellington Police Officers were called to a residence on Courtland Street after neighbors reported that someone was breaking glass next door.

At 6:26 pm, an officer reported that the man was throwing items, including a table, at her. One minute later, the man came storming out of the house carrying a knife.

As he was running towards officers in the street, police attempted to subdue the man by deploying a Taser. But it did not work.

Democrats fail to lead on policing or education

Democrats pretend to care about cops but won’t change policies that make the law enforcement duties more difficult. Some teachers pretend they care about kids — but they’re breaking up families in the name of gender identity. Jason Rantz discussed both issues on the Faulkner Focus. (July 26, 2022)

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is seeking help to identify an attempted murder suspect who was recorded on a garage security camera pulling out a gun and trying to shoot a man after a botched robbery in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday.

Authorities said the unidentified suspect approached the victim’s vehicle as he was parking in a garage and demanded his belongings. The victim then ran across the street, and the suspect followed closely behind, ultimately pulling out a gun and pointing it at the victim.

The homeowner narrowly escapes being shot after the suspect’s gun failed to fire, police said.

Police are encouraging anyone with information on the suspect to contact LVMPD Summerlin Area Command at 702-828-9455. Anonymous tips can also be shared at Crime Stoppers via the telephone, 702-385-5555 or online at crimestoppersofnv.com.

Taco Bell surveillance footage shows moment manager allegedly poured boiling water on customers

Surveillance footage from the Dallas, Texas, fast food spot shows multiple angles of the alleged incident, said to have taken place on June 17.

In it, a store employee can be seen holding a bucket and pouring liquid onto people who appear to be customers. The lawsuit states that the alleged attack took place after Brittany Davis and her 16-year-old niece identified in court documents as “C.T.” complained that their order was not prepared correctly.

Crump, a civil rights attorney who gained prominence when he represented the family of George Floyd, is representing Davis and C.T. along with attorney Paul Grinke.

Grinke also shared the video with local Fox4, and told the station in an interview that another store employee threatened to fight C.T.

Northern Michigan restaurant shuts down in the height of tourist season because ‘cocky jerks’ were reportedly rude to staff

“Due to the mistreatment of our Servers our kitchen is closed,” the note reads.

She then took to Facebook to offer a more detailed explanation:

“I’ve worked in downtown Charlevoix most of my adult life during Venetian. It’s usually great, busy, but fun and worthwhile. I’m so incredibly disappointed and embarrassed by the [tourists] we have this year. My staff took a BEATING all week. Last night was our last straw. Too many rude comments. Too many arrogant individuals acting like they can throw money at us to get their way. Too many cocky jerks. No one gets to treat my staff like trash. They are the absolute shining stars in my life and I love and appreciate the hell out of the few of them that I am lucky enough to have. If you push your servers, watch them start to push back. We are here to ensure great food, drinks and quality of your time spent with us. We are not here to be abused. We will not tolerate that anymore.”

Since Sunday morning, the post has received over 3.7K likes and 6.6K shares. Most of the comments express support for Moore and sympathy for the reportedly rude patrons. However, others suggest that restaurants have taken advantage of people’s patience, blaming staffing shortages and COVID for indifferent attitudes and poor service from staff.

‘Hamster cage’: Jan. 6 prisoner spills beans on confinement

It is Andrew Taake, 33, of Houston, who said in the interview that he’ll take punishment if it’s something he deserves.

But he wants those who were on the other side – the side of the government – who violated the law to face their punishments, too.

The report explained Taake was describing “what pre-trial prison time is like for a non-convicted Trump supporter awaiting trial at United States Penitentiary, Lewisburg. Meanwhile, actual convicted murderers and rapists in the prison are treated better with access to amenities that J6’ers are prohibited from using.”

The report explained, “J6’ers are apparently deemed too dangerous to mingle with the actual murderers and gangsters at the penitentiary and are instead forced into an individual unit where they spend their small allotment of ‘recreation’ time in individual cages.”

“January 6’ers ‘rec’ time is spent in what is literally like a hamster cage. As if we are guilty of severely heinous crimes. We are inside of a small cage behind a fence with razor wire on it, behind a wall with razor wire all over it, and we’re still pretrial. They’re one man cages and you are separated from the others.

NYTimes: Cartels Get $13 Billion a Year from Joe Biden’s Welcome for Migrants

The current revenue is 26 times larger than the $500 million the cartels earned under President Donald Trump’s low-migration policies, according to the July 25 report.

The key news was buried in the fourteenth paragraph, long after the lede’s focus on a 2014 smuggling crime:

The cartels and coyotes earn the money via smuggling contracts, high-interest loans, and border extortion, and by trafficking indebted migrants into indentured-servitude, cartel-controlled jobs throughout the United States.

Since January 2021, Biden’s lax policies have allowed roughly 1.7 million migrants to cross the border under various legal pretexts, such as asylum, parole, reunification, unaccompanied child, or refugee status, for example.

His deputies, chiefly his pro-migration border chief, Alehandro Mayorkas, have also allowed roughly 900,000 additional job-seeking “gateway” migrants to sneak past the overstretched border.

Since at least 1990, the D.C. establishment has extracted tens of millions of legal and illegal migrants — plus temporary visa workers — from poor countries to serve as workers, managers, consumers, and renters for various U.S. investors and CEOs.

Exposed: Zelensky’s ‘Blacklist’ Of Americans To Shutdown Over ‘Wrong Think’ [VIDEO]

On the July 25th broadcast of Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Carlson delved into the Ukrainian government’s blacklisting of numerous Americans as being pro-Russian, to include prominent journalist Glenn Greenwald who appeared on Carlson’s program to discuss Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s endeavors to slander his critics.

Carlson briefly mentioned the zeal with which the Biden administration has employed to protect the so-called “democracy” of Ukraine, despite the fact that Ukraine is not at all a democracy.

The Fox News host asserted that the current administration’s emboldening of the Ukrainian government’s facade of a democracy has since paved the way for the Zelensky regime to test the waters on slandering Americans by way of a blacklist that labels key figures as peddlers of Russian propaganda.

Time for ANSWERS on US money to Ukraine, alleged corruption

In fact, far-left leaders have been ‘obsessed’ with Ukraine since the Obama years, Glenn explains.

But back in 2014, Ukraine was considered to be a corrupt nation that needed our help rooting out the deceit (at least, that’s what they told us).

But now, Congress continues to funnel hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars to Ukraine, with practically no oversight to how it’s being spent. Why are we writing them what seems to be a blank check?

Is Ukraine still corrupt? Is President Zelenksyy an honest leader?

It’s time for ANSWERS. In this clip, Glenn discusses all those questions, plus he’s joined by Rep. Spartz — who is from Ukraine — to give her thoughts as well…

Report: CA Gov. Gavin Newsom Signed Ten Gun Control Laws in July Alone

The Times adds that the most recent restriction signed by Newsom, the one that allows “Californians to sue anyone who distributes banned assault weapons or ghost guns,” was signed Friday.

Breitbart News reported Newsom’s signing of the law Friday, noting FOX News’ observation that the law is modeled after a Texas law that allows private citizens to “sue physicians, drivers or anyone else who aids a woman in receiving an abortion for $10,000.”

Newsom’s office tweeted, “California will be the first state to allow individuals to sue those spreading illegal assault weapons and ghost guns. If states like Texas can use laws to put women in harm’s way, then California will use that authority to protect lives.”

On Sunday, two days after Newsom signed the latest gun control bill, at least three people were shot in an attack at a car show in San Pedro, California.

Democrat Rep. Elaine Luria Votes for Massive Chip Subsidy Legislation, Holds Millions in Chip Stocks

Of course, this comes after Luria said earlier in the year that the idea of banning stock trading among members of Congress was “bullshit” after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared to finally cave and voiced her public support for such a measure.

“So my thoughts on it, you know, I think this whole concept is bullshit. Because I think that, why would you assume that members of Congress are going to be inherently bad or corrupt?” Luria wondered while speaking with PunchBowl’s Max Cohen in February.

However, Luria’s financial disclosures revealed why the idea of preventing lawmakers from owning or trading sparks sparked ire. While Luria is apprehensive of such a measure, she also has millions of dollars on the line.

All while she and her husband reportedly traded up to half a million dollars in stocks last year, and the two jointly own millions together, as Business Insider’s Bryan Metzger noted.

Chuck Grassley: ‘Highly Credible’ Whistleblowers Say FBI, DoJ Downplay Negative Hunter Biden Information

(Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call)

“First, it’s been alleged that the FBI developed information in 2020 about Hunter Biden’s criminal financial and related activity,” he continued. “It is further alleged that in August 2020, FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten opened an assessment which was used by an FBI Headquarters (“FBI HQ”) team to improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation and caused investigative activity to cease.”

Grassley’s letter further alleged that just one month before the 2020 election, “an avenue of derogatory Hunter Biden reporting was ordered closed” by a senior FBI agent at the bureau’s Washington Field office.

“The allegations provided to my office appear to indicate that there was a scheme in place among certain FBI officials to undermine derogatory information connected to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation,” wrote Grassley.

Japan carried out its first execution of 2022 on a man who was convicted of plowing a truck into a crowd in 2008 on Tuesday.

Tomohiro Kato killed seven people in the attack, which saw him driving a vehicle into a large crowd in Tokyo. He exited the vehicle after it came to a stop and began stabbing people at random.

“I came to Akihabara to kill people. It didn’t matter who I’d kill,” Kato told police of his crimes. Akihabara is a district within Tokyo. Kato reportedly documented his plan of attack in a series of online posts while he was making his way to Akihabar, lamenting about his job and social life.

“India’s capability to detect and destroy hostile fighters, strategic bombers, missiles and drones at long ranges will get another major boost when a new squadron of the S-400 Triumf surface-to-air missile systems becomes operational along the northern borders with China in the next two to three months,” the Times of India reported on July 25.

“[D]eliveries of the second operational S-400 squadron through ships and aircraft are now underway from Russia,” the newspaper revealed, citing unnamed sources.

New Delhi has continued to move forward with a plan to acquire five S-400 surface-to-air missile systems from Moscow pursuant to a $5.5 million deal signed by the two parties in 2018.
