The since-arrested naked madman accused of terrorizing women and girls on a popular Virginia walking trail over the past several months will eventually be extradited back to New York where he faced pending charges of attempted rape and sexual assault, law enforcement officials revealed on Monday. 

Juan Alfaro Rodriguez, 42, is accused of assaulting and exposing himself to women and girls along the 45-mile Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail in at least 13 cases being investigated out of Fairfax County, as well as an additional eight cases specific to the town of Herndon since July 15.

 “Over the last two months, a predator victimized over a dozen people and shook an entire community,” Lazisky said. “There was no rape in these cases, but he did assault victims … He does have similar motives, and he does have an extensive history.” 

Meet the far-left players pushing credit cards to TRACK GUNS

Visa Inc. joined several other major credit card companies this weekend in a decision to ‘separately categorize sales at gun shops.’

The decision is a huge win for gun control advocates, who argue that tracking gun sales could prevent certain catastrophic events from occurring. But this MAJOR decision wasn’t just Visa’s.

So who’s behind it all? In this clip, Glenn exposes the far-left players — including the world’s largest union-owned bank — that have been making this push…

“All expenses incurred doing business on behalf of the city of New Orleans will not be reimbursed to the city of New Orleans,” Cantrell declared, WWL-TV reported. “One thing is clear: I do my job, and I will continue to do it with distinction and integrity every step of the way.”

City policy, on the other hand, requires that municipal employees “purchase the lowest airfare available.”

“Employees are required to purchase the lowest airfare available,” the policy states, according to WWL. “Employees who choose an upgrade from coach, economy, or business class flights are solely responsible for the difference in cost.”

Last month, Cantrell claimed the upgrades are necessary to ensure her safety as a black woman.

Cantrell’s statement suggested she travels alone. But the Times-Picayune obtained travel expenditures showing Cantrell travels with aides. Those aides always fly coach, and the travel records underscore the cost discrepancy between her travel and theirs.

Securing Schools | Full Measure

Eighteen-year-old Salvador Ramos murdered 21 people at a Texas elementary school last May.

But might things have been different if a detection system had quickly alerted authorities to a man with a gun before the first shot?

Satellite Image Reveals ‘Agriculture Wasteland’ Across California’s Rice Capital

Kurt Richter, a third-generation rice farmer in Colusa, the rice capital of California, told San Francisco Chronicle that fields upon fields of the grain have already transformed into a “wasteland.” 

A report via the US Department of Agriculture shows about 300,000 out of the 550,000 acres committed to rice growing in California will go without harvest. This could potentially drive up sushi prices nationwide because most of the rice produced in the state is for just that. 

UC Davis agricultural economist Aaron Smith warned the collapse in rice production in the state will translate to an estimated $500 million loss for farmers, about 40% of which will be covered by federal crop insurance. 

Richter said rice fields are “abandoned,” and a mini dust bowl could emerge west of the Sacramento River in Colusa County. He said this summer’s scorching heat and lack of moisture are some of the significant contributors to the area’s water shortage. 

The Border | Full Measure

We begin with an important story we’ve been covering closely for years: The Border.

The current crisis is marred by record numbers of illegal border crossings and immigrant deaths, and record fentanyl smuggling and U.S. deaths.

Border states have largely been left on their own to fight back. We’re just back from Eagle Pass, a South Texas town bearing the unfortunate brunt of the border crisis.

[VIDEO] Interview With Astrophysicist Goes Mega Viral When Climate Change Discussion Goes Off The Rails

A recent interview with an astrophysicist by the name of Piers Corbyn has gone mega-viral after it didn’t turn out quite how the reporter had hoped it would.

As of this publishing, there are already over 2 million views of this clip.

It’s very popular because it’s making “Climate Change” cultists furious, which really isn’t that difficult since it seems like they’re always angry about something.

The left has labeled Mr. Corbyn a “conspiracy theorist” for his views on climate change and other issues like the COVID vaccine.

Videos: Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Three California Hospitals for Using Remdesivir as COVID-19 Treatment Without Informed Consent 

“Attorneys Dan Watkins and Michael Hamilton announced in a national Press Conference on September 7 the filing of their first-in-the-nation landmark lawsuit against three hospitals on behalf of families who had lost their loved ones with the “bounties” paid to hospitals for using the toxic combination of food and fluid restriction, remdesivir, mechanical ventilation, high dose morphine-midazolam respiration-suppressing cocktail to spiral patients down the dark road to death,” according to the news release.

The hospital’s administration, physicians, and nurses are being sued for wrongful death, medical battery, elder abuse, and other violations of patients’ rights.

“There are several healthcare providers, and individuals associated with the care that are also going to be named in lawsuits that have not been yet, and we’re doing that to make sure they’re held accountable for what they did,” said Attorneys Dan Watkins.

According to Watkins, the lawsuit is based on two basic concepts, medical deception and unconsented medical care.

Arizona Democrat Katie Hobbs Won’t Debate Republican Kari Lake for Governor’s Race

On Thursday, Hobbs, who in 2017 said “neo-nazi[s]” make up former President Donald Trump’s base of supporters, and her team proposed a town hall-style event in lieu of debate. Each candidate would answer questions separately under the proposal. The CEC rejected the format and nudged the Hobbs campaign to debate Lake, giving the campaigns a week to hammer out details. DeMont’s statement came with four days left to reach a compromise.

During their virtual meeting Thursday, CEC Chairman Damon Mayer asked DeMont if there was “any scenario in which Secretary Hobbs will share the stage with Ms. Lake in a traditional … debate format?”

“Well, I’m not going to answer a hypothetical question,” she replied before refusing to answer a similar follow-up.

After the CEC rejected the proposal, Lake said that “[i]t’s becoming clearer everyday that Hobbs’ strategy is to hide from Me, the Press, and the Voters throughout the entirety of this campaign and run out the clock on the people of Arizona.”

Using 9/11 for cheap political shots

Hillary Clinton and her fellow Democrats used 9/11 to attack Donald Trump and his supporters. You’d think that the solemn day is above politicizing — but not for Democrats. Jason Rantz broke it down on the Faulkner Focus. (September 12, 2022)

CIA director gets pressed to address his ‘strong ties’ to Communist China

Gooden questioned the CIA director’s fitness to serve as director following recent DCNF reports revealing multiple former Chinese government employees and at least 20 undisclosed CCP members worked at Carnegie Endowment for International Peace during Burns’ presidency between February 2015 and November 2021. The DCNF determined Carnegie had employed CCP members after analyzing hundreds of Chinese-language, CCP branch records and personnel profiles.

“The vast influence the CCP had at Carnegie during your tenure as president and the continued influence they have today — despite claims you made at your confirmation hearing that you had ended the CCP’s influence — presents a significant lapse in judgment and brings into question your ability to identify and mitigate national security risks,” Gooden’s letter said.

The letter to the CIA comes two weeks after Gooden and Alabama Republican Rep. Mike Rogers called on the Department of Defense (DOD) to stop funding and investigate Carnegie on Aug. 26 and only days after the DCNF revealed Chinese government employees — including one CCP member — worked on DOD grants worth hundreds of thousands of dollars related to nuclear warfare for Carnegie under Burns.

STUNNING! National Archives REFUSES to Turn Over Joe Biden’s Vice Presidential Records on Meetings with Hunter and James Biden — The Same Leftist Hacks Behind the Mar-a-Lago Raid

The SAME National Archives that is behind the raid on President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago.

The Swamp is deep and wide and even the National Archives can no longer be trusted.

America First Legal sued the the National Archives for the release of the documents related to Hunter and James Biden’s meetings with Joe Biden during his tenure as vice president.

The National Archives REFUSES to turn the documents over.

All communications by Vice-President Biden with his son Hunter and his brother James;
Official government travel by Hunter and James and their visits to the White House;
Other records further exposing Joe Biden’s involvement in his family’s corrupt foreign business deals.
The National Archives denied AFL’s request for prompt processing on the pretext that the public does not urgently need them, and, incredibly, on the grounds that there is no widespread and exceptional media interest in these matters.

In a 5-2 decision, the high court ruled that the Michigan Board of Canvassers must certify the petition presented to the board by the left-wing group, Promote The Vote (PTV), “as sufficient for placement on the November 8 general election ballot.”

The Democrat-aligned groups involved with Promote The Vote’s ballot initiative include ACLU Michigan and The League of Women Voters Michigan, among others.

If Michigan voters pass the initiative this fall, the proposed constitutional amendment would completely overhaul the state’s election laws.

Thousands of people protested against EuroPride in Belgrade on September 11.

BELGRADE — Organizers of a pan-European LGBT event scheduled for Belgrade but threatened last month with an official ban launched EuroPride week on September 12 with rainbow flags and brief remarks.

The defiant opening of EuroPride passed without incident despite intense protests by religious and nationalist groups and a warning last month from President Aleksandar Vucic that the event could not take place although it had been approved three years ago.

The march to Belgrade’s towering Temple of St. Sava attracted thousands of people, threatening counterdemonstrations and other steps if EuroPride went ahead.

Serbian Orthodox Church Patriarch Porfirije led clerics and faithful in a prayer “for the sanctity of marriage and family” that accused “invisible forces” of imposing “ungodly and unnatural unions as a substitute for marriage and family.”

A screen grab of a video shared on social media showing protesters in front of Iran’s judiciary on September 11.

The demonstration on September 11 is the fifth day since the beginning of protests by the families of those sentenced to death in Iran’s prisons, which began on September 6 in front of the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Karaj, near Tehran.

According to the Iran Human Rights Society, at least 18 prisoners sentenced to death have been transferred to solitary confinement from the Karaj, Minab, and Gohardasht central prisons to different parts of Iran.

Many protest rallies have been held in Iran in recent years, but a rally to oppose the death sentence is a rare act of defiance.

Gantz made the statement during an address at the Jerusalem Post Annual Conference in New York City. Gantz says the weapons are being manufactured inside Syria’s Centre D’Etudes et de Recherches Scientifiques (CERS), displaying a map of the various locations.

“Under the vision of Qasem Soleimani, Iran transforms this into production facilities for low-range missiles and weapons,” Gantz said. “In other words, we can get another Iranian front, a factory for advanced strategic weapons.”

“Not only Iran has accumulated capabilities and infrastructure, but knowledge that cannot be reversed. According to our assessment, should Iran want to do so, it can reach nuclear weapons in a matter of weeks,” Gantz added.

UN: 50 million people lived in ‘modern slavery’ last year

ILO, along with the U.N.’s International Organization for Migration and the Walk Free foundation – a rights group that focuses on modern slavery – reported that 28 million people were in forced labor and 22 in forced marriages at the end of 2021.

The report released Monday said such figures marked an increase of 10 million people living in modern slavery since the last such report was published in 2017, based on figures a year earlier. Two-thirds of the increase pertained to forced marriages alone, it said.

Based on available data, ILO and partners found increases in child and forced marriages in countries like Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Congo, Egypt, India, Uganda and Yemen. But the report said wealthier countries were “not immune” to the problem, with nearly one-in-four forced marriages taking place in high or upper middle-income countries.

All told, more than 2/3 of all forced marriages were found in the Asia-Pacific region – the world’s most populous region – but the highest number per capita came in Arab countries where nearly 5 in 1,000 people were in forced marriages.

Commentary/Opinion:

Who Cares About Illegal Immigration?

It’s understandable why people from all over the world want to come to the United States. It’s still the land of opportunity.

So, should we open our borders to everyone, no matter their legal status? Is that the compassionate thing to do? Is that the prudent thing to do?

Will Witt has a lot of questions to ask about this difficult issue.

Trans: When Ideology Meets Reality | Helen Joyce | #287

The Trans movement surges across western civilization, necessitating the ego-centric fantasies of gender-dysphoric youths over what once was known commonly as indisputable reality.

Helen Joyce and Dr Jordan B Peterson discuss the depths of this truly cultural battle, the dangers of a quickly growing transhumanist ideology, and the unbridled narcissism lurking at the heart of the conflict.

Leaving Islam

It is very difficult for a Muslim to leave Islam. It means losing their family and community (ummah). There is also the danger of being killed for blasphemy.

These punishments are compounded if you speak in public about Islam.

So, a public apostate, like Al Fadi, is a hero. Al Fadi was born in Saudi Arabia and intended to become a jihadi or a member of the morality police.

After coming to the US, he set out to prove Christianity was false, but found he could not do so.
