‘It’s traumatizing’: 4 found dead at Oak Forest home after barricade situation, fire

When police arrived they found two victims with gunshot wounds in the driveway and a third victim in the roadway south of the home. 

Police pulled the victims into their squad cars and transferred them to a safer location to render aid. The victims were then taken to a local hospital where they were treated and later died. 

A child was sent out of the home and evacuated, according to officials. A short time later, officers on the scene saw smoke coming from the home and flames appearing in the front window.

Neighbors heard multiple gunshots and screaming around 6:30 a.m. They also said there have been multiple domestic issues at the home.

Would you EVER have believed ANY OF THIS would be called ‘NORMAL’?

In an especially Orwellian move, Planned Parenthood has redefined what it used to consider a fetal heartbeat to now just being “cardiac activity.” Why?

Apparently, because Stacey Abrams said so.

“Gays Against Groomers” Demolishes Trans Ideology at CA School Board Meeting

“Simply affirming a teenager’s gender is akin to affirming anorexia. Both are body dysmorphic disorders.

Yet we don’t teach a starving teenager how to binge and purge; or affirm that they are indeed overweight,” said Mario Presents, a representative of Gays Against Groomers, at a Conejo Valley Unified School District board meeting on Tuesday.

A man accused of raping his teenage relative secured a sweetheart plea deal from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg — and then went on to allegedly sexually terrorize five people in the Bronx just a month later, The Post has learned.

Justin Washington, 25, was promised a plum 30-day jail sentence, along with five years of probation, after he agreed in August to plead down to a charge of coercion in his Manhattan rape case.

But just a week before he was set to be sentenced Wednesday, Washington allegedly went on a sex-crime spree, attacking four women and a man near the homeless shelter where he was living in the Bronx.

“How does a man who rapes an innocent teenage girl walk the streets to sexually attack [five] more innocent [people], including a homeless woman?” one Manhattan cop fumed.

More ‘Damaging Testimony’ from ICE in Lawsuit over Failing Immigration Enforcement

(The Center Square) – More “damaging testimony” has been obtained about Biden administration immigration enforcement policies, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said after she released another transcript of another top federal official her office deposed as part of a lawsuit she filed against the administration.

Moody’s office recently deposed Corey Price, Immigration and Customs Enforcement executive associate director for Enforcement and Removal Operations.

Under oath, Price testified that ICE agents under the Biden administration are removing seven times fewer people who entered the U.S. illegally in the past year than the agency did 10 years ago.

ICE is detaining only about half the number of people it did during the Trump administration and 40% less the number of people who entered the U.S. illegally now than it did during the last border surge in 2019.

Instead of detaining and processing for removal foreign nationals who enter the U.S. illegally, ICE agents are releasing them into the U.S., he said.

Senior LA prosecutors say they were demoted by DA Gascón after publicly criticizing him: ‘Instilling fear’

McKinney announced in July that if Gascón was recalled, he would run as a candidate to replace him, and supported the removal effort, which failed to obtain enough signatures.

“The DA is reassigning me to retaliate against me for calling attention to the fact that he’s incompetent and not following the law in the state of California,” McKinney said. 

“I am only a month and half away from having prosecuted one of the highest profile cases in our office in recent memory, and I’m being reassigned to a job of literally no consequence,” he said in reference to the Hussle murder case.

After 24 years in the district attorney’s office, McKinney was told by a supervisor on Thursday that he will be transferred to a small area office overseeing misdemeanor prosecutions.

Soros Prosecutor Twice Sprung Criminal Who Went On To Kill A Man

The case is the latest instance in which progressive bail reform has allowed repeat offenders to commit murder.

Descano’s office has released or dropped charges on four offenders this year who have gone on to kill. In June, Descano released a violent repeat offender on probation who later beat an elderly homeless woman to death.

The left-wing billionaire George Soros donated over half-a-million dollars to Descano’s campaign as part of a nationwide push to elect progressive prosecutors. Many Soros-backed prosecutors have since eliminated bail and released offenders before trial in an effort to reduce incarceration.

Virginia attorney general Jason Miyares (R.) told the Washington Free Beacon that “the Fairfax commonwealth’s attorney must do his job and fight for justice for victims, not criminals.”

“Routinely giving repeat offenders light sentences and allowing them to quickly return to Virginia’s streets is not only disrespectful to the victims of violent crime, but encourages more crime and creates more victims,” Miyares said.

‘GOOD FBI AGENTS —STAND UP!’: Tulsi Gabbard Calls on Feds to Challenge Abuses of Power

Former congresswoman and one-time presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is asking good agents within the Federal Bureau of Investigation to stand up to superiors who are abusing power. Gabbard’s comments come in the wake of numerous reports highlighting the DOJ’s efforts to crack down on whistleblowers.

…and in some cases, punishing them outright.

The former congresswoman then shared a New York Post op-ed from Miranda Devine entitled FBI hero paying the price for exposing unjust ‘persecution’ of conservative Americans.

As a result of these tweets, 22 House Republicans — including some on the Armed Services Committee — requested that Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin take “immediate action” to investigate her for “egregious bias.” 

“This woke ideology is destroying our military and poisoning the minds of American children,” Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., said. “[T]he Department of Defense has routinely prioritized adhering to woke ideologies instead of strengthening our national defense. This is shameful and an insult to the brave men and women who selflessly serve our nation.”

“This is very intentional. They’ve put her in this place because [the Defense Department] is another institution that [the Biden administration] has every intention of tearing down,” former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told “Jesse Watters Primetime.”

 Pentagon spokesperson Cmdr. Nicole Schwegman said Sept. 16, “We are aware of news reports concerning an official at DoDEA. The office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness is reviewing this matter.”

House Republicans Announce “Commitment To America” Plan

House Republicans just unveiled their “Commitment to America” plan to use a conservative vision to turn a struggling country around. The plan includes 4 key principles: a strong economy, a safe country, a future built on freedom, and an accountable government.

The country is currently facing the highest inflation rate in almost 40 years thanks to the Biden administration passing numerous excessive spending packages labeled as “covid relief” and assistance for Ukraine that have totaled 10 trillion taxpayer dollars. While Democrats passed the “Inflation Reduction Act” it did nothing but raise taxes on small businesses while adding an unnecessary 87,000 IRS workers.

The Commitment to America plan calls for cutting taxes and reducing wasteful government spending that causes more problems than it solves.

Biden administration may try to oust World Bank head

Biden officials have considered trying to oust World Bank President David Malpass, who took office during the Trump administration, because they believe he’s weak on climate, according to people familiar with the matter.

 Administration officials are deeply concerned by Malpass’ failure to answer this week when asked if climate change was caused by humans. His response provides ammunition to officials who want Biden to spend some political capital to attempt to remove him.

  • But officials know that replacing Malpass would be a messy process and they are unsure how — or even if — the U.S. can orchestrate his ouster.
  • Malpass was confirmed by the bank’s board of executive directors, which the White House doesn’t control.

State of play: Malpass, a Trump holdover, was viewed suspiciously by the Biden administration from the beginning. That suspicion has now been confirmed. And he’s been on thin ice for months.

President Joe Biden and the Democrats’ white supremacy disinformation

But white supremacist violence isn’t actually a widespread problem, according to recent reports from FBI agents. The imminent dangers of white supremacy are essentially an agenda-driven phenomenon that the Biden administration has overblown.

Analysts and top officials at the FBI are allegedly pressuring agents to find security threats attributable to white supremacy in order to meet the bureau’s internal quotas, the Washington Times reported. The problem is that such threats are actually quite scarce, according to some FBI agents.

“The demand for white supremacy vastly outstrips the supply of white supremacy,” one agent said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “We have more people assigned to investigate white supremacists than we can actually find.”

Once Again, American Children Suffer Under Joe Biden’s Administration

This week Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) sent a scathing letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, which was posted on GOP House Judiciary Committee Twitter along with a copy of the letter. 

“New whistleblower information reveals that the FBI is moving agents off of child sexual abuse investigations to pursue political investigations,” read the letter.

The whistleblower revealed that officials were told that “child sexual abuse investigations were no longer an F.B.I priority.”

According to Jordan’s letter, a whistleblower notified him and other members that the upper management at the FBI’s Washington, D.C., field office was “pressuring agents” to reclassify cases that did not meet the criteria for “domestic violent extremism” to boost the Biden’s political narrative.

Biden Regime Cops to $30B Rounding Error in COVID Fraud

The Labor Department inspector general announced Thursday that fraudsters and criminal gangs had plundered nearly $46 billion in bogus unemployment claims during the pandemic, while warning that the actual total may climb higher.

The $46 billion is a staggering $30 billion higher than the previous fraud estimate the Labor Department provided last June, which concluded $16 billion had been stolen.

The criminals who had been keeping so busy tapped myriad fraudulent streams to bilk the system, including bogus email accounts and Social Security numbers of dead people and of federal prisoners ineligible for unemployment benefits.

About 205,000 Social Security numbers that apparently belonged to zombies were used to secure claims, the inspector general’s report revealed. Another million or so Social Security numbers were used by people who illegally filed for benefits in two or more states, resulting in nearly $29 billion siphoned from more than one state.

Too Busy Attacking Trump? New York AG Letitia James Refuses to Debate GOP Opponent

New York’s Democrat Attorney General Letitia James has been busy ramping up her attacks on former President Donald Trump in the final weeks of her reelection campaign, but what she’s not doing is debating her GOP opponent to explain to voters why she deserves another term. 

Among the explanations she owes to Empire State voters is why she tried to abandon her post as attorney general in order to mount a run for governor, only to drop out after failing to gain traction against fellow Democrat Kathy Hochul.

Perhaps James’ work to announce a conveniently timed $250 million civil lawsuit against Trump, his three oldest children, and his business is what has kept the AG too busy to agree to or participate in any debates?

Colombia’s former President Duque warns cocaine legalization will cause ‘major’ US security threat

Colombia’s former President Ivan Duque warned that his successor’s calls to change course on the war on drugs would turn Colombia into a “narco state” that could threaten the security of the United States and other countries “in the hemisphere.” 

“Now, what worries me is that there is now the possibility of getting into the permission, or the legalization of cocaine and consumption,” Duque, who had been in New York to attend the Concordia Summit, told Fox News Digital. “I think that it will be very bad for Colombia and that will be very bad for the countries in the hemisphere, and I think that could generate also a major security threat to the United States.”

Duque, who left office in August, continued: “So by no means I’m in favor of the legalization of the cocaine trade … But I also have to say it, Colombia cannot turn into a narco state. I think the world now has unified in the concept of prohibition, and I think if just one country, let’s say Colombia, decides to legalize cocaine, it’ll turn itself into a narco state.”

German city to push ‘diversity’ by reserving a third of all jobs for migrants

Germany’s Greens in the city of Hanover are proposing to reserve a third of the city’s jobs exclusively for migrants in the name of “diversity,” effectively barring ethnic Germans from the positions. 

As part of the broader, ongoing push for “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI), the city’s ruling Greens have devised a plan to establish Hanover as an “immigration city,” part of which calls for at least a third of the city’s newly advertised jobs to be filled by applicants with migrant backgrounds by the end of 2026.

“A green mayor makes the difference,” wrote Filiz Polat, managing director of the Greens, who is referencing Hanover Mayor Belit Onay, who took office in November 2019. Both Polat and Onay are of Turkish heritage. 

ReMix News reports that Hanover’s integration committee, which is run by a coalition of Greens, SPD, and CDU politicians, is drafting a resolution to establish foreign-born migrants in positions of authority, noting that the committee will ensure that the “target figure for all new hires is 30 percent.”

Debunking Ecojustice’s #ClimateKids Climate Claims #2

In Part 2 of this series, we look at the climate claims made by the Ecojustice #GENClimateAction kids court case against the Ontario government, as well as reviewing CBC’s reporting. We point out that ‘people who can make you believe absurdities, can make you do atrocities’ (Voltaire). Ontario brought Prof. William van Wijngaarden as an expert witness on climate change.

Most of the plaintiffs have not lived long enough to have experienced the slightest of climate change – thought it may be true that they have experienced frightening extreme weather events. The singular focus on human emissions of carbon dioxide through the use of fossil fuels as the sole driver of climate change is an absurd conclusion.
