In fiery remarks, Edgarian told the story of how she grew up during the Iranian revolution and witnessed destruction she said was caused by communism and accused retiring School Superintendent Jim Scanlon of perpetuating segregation and causing division among students and district families with controversial teachings.

“My motherland was ravaged by communism,” Edgarian told the board. “Sitting through a board meeting that was divided up this side against CRT, that side for CRT, was complete nightmare. I sent my kids to study mathematics, literature, history, and I want them to study every kind of history.”

“You are leaving a mess. You have brought division to us,” she added as the crowd clapped. “This is not the way it’s supposed to be—”

Man claiming to be Jesus stabs three in Pittsburgh

Emergency dispatchers received a call before 2 a.m. Monday from a man who said someone tried to kill him, according to a criminal complaint reviewed by TribLive. The caller then hung up, and responding authorities found three stabbing victims in an apartment in the Carrick neighborhood of Pittsburgh. 

After attending to the victims, officers heard a noise coming from the apartment’s basement. They and a K9 unit then found Rami Jasim, 33, hiding in the basement’s rafters.

One of the injured men told officers in an interview that Jasim was offered a chance to stay at the apartment because he was homeless, according to the criminal complaint.

The victim said they were discussing the Gregorian calendar when Jasim said he was Jesus and proceeded to stab people.

Hawaii officials wrongly arrested a homeless man for a crime committed by someone else, locked him up in a state hospital for more than two years, forced him to take psychiatric drugs and then tried to cover up the mistake by quietly setting him free with just 50 cents to his name, the Hawaii Innocence Project said in a court document asking a judge to set the record straight.

Spriestersbach’s attorneys argue it all could have been cleared up if police simply compared the two men’s photographs and fingerprints.

Instead, against Spriestersbach’s protests that he wasn’t Castleberry, he was eventually committed to the Hawaii State Hospital.


Sheriff Orders Staff to Work From Home Due to Danger of Homeless Camps

The unsafe environment she refers to, in large part, is the homeless encampments being allowed to stay up around the courthouse despite the violence they bring with them.

Just last week, a homeless man was arrested after he attempted to rape a seven-month pregnant woman in a courthouse bathroom.

In that July 29 incident, 35-year-old Clint James Jory had just been released from prison six days prior after a 21-month sentence for multiple assaults against women.

Alexis Saborit-Viltres is charged with second-degree murder in Shakopee, Minnesota, after he allegedly beheaded his girlfriend, America Mafalda Thayer, and dumped her body at an intersection in Shakopee in front of horrified witnesses.

Fox 9 reported that the witnesses “described seeing a car stop near the intersection and the driver, Saborit, swinging an object near the passenger door.” He then reportedly dragged what looked like a body out of the car and walked away from the scene.

ICE spokesman Shawn Neudauer confirmed to Fox News that Saborit-Viltres is an illegal immigrant from Cuba with a lengthy violent criminal history, with multiple convictions in Minnesota and Louisiana for domestic abuse/assault battery, driving under the influence and fleeing a police officer.

“During an illegal exhibition of speed event at Barneveld & McKinnon, a passenger leaned out of a Cadi holding an AK47,” the traffic safety unit said in a tweet about the July 11 incident.

The vehicle from the Wild West scene was finally tracked down and seized Wednesday, police said.

The image of the woman waving the assault rifle triggered a flood of reactions of Twitter.

Washington Football Team bans fans from wearing Native American headdresses, face paint

The change was announced Wednesday with other updated stadium policies and protocols, including unvaccinated guests being required to wear masks and the return of tailgating.

Washington started its move away from Native American imagery last year when it dropped the moniker “Redskins” after being known as the Washington Redskins or Boston Redskins since 1933 and Boston Braves in 1932.

In July, the Kansas City Chiefs announced they would move away from some of their own Native American imagery but not change their name.

“Cancel water, electricity and broadband debt,” the Squad member tweeted Wednesday morning. “#StopTheShutoffs.

“She changed her messaging Thursday afternoon – calling for a bailout instead of outright cancellation.

“No one should live without water and critical services,” she tweeted Thursday. “Congress bailed out the banks in 2008 when it was their own wrongdoing. There should be NO hesitation in bailing out people who, due to no fault of their own, are experiencing the impacts of a pandemic. #StoptheShutOffs”

In an interview with the Detroit News, the left-wing congresswoman blamed the pandemic for unpaid bills but stopped short of addressing the causes of the economic slowdown.

The 45-year-old member of “The Squad” has faced mounting criticism in recent weeks after it emerged she had spent $70,000 on private security in the last three months.

Asked to respond to those who branded her a hypocrite, an unapologetic Bush hit back on Wednesday by telling critics to: “Suck it up.”

“Defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets because we’re trying to save lives.”

Bush, who slept outside the Capitol this week in protest over the eviction moratorium ending, lashed out at her critics and suggested they would rather see her dead instead of allowing her to do “important work.”

Reports said more than 80 million acres of national forests are overgrown and fire-prone. They added the forests are in need of active land management. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) recently praised Westerman and the bill.

“This bill is especially critical to a state like California, where our communities are annually devastated by catastrophic wildfires,” said McCarthy.

According to lawmakers, the bill would use state of the art science to determine the top 10 percent of high risk fire sheds, improve wildlife habitats, protect infrastructure and public safety where forests and urban areas intersect, encourage quick reforestation and remove hazardous trees while revitalizing the economy of rural areas.

It also seeks to reduce frivolous lawsuits while increasing the pace and scale of critical restoration projects.

Soros bankrolls group pushing to ‘dismantle,’ replace Minneapolis Police Department

The Open Society Policy Center, an advocacy nonprofit in Soros’ network, provided a $500,000 donation to Vote Yes 4 Minneapolis in November, one month after it was established, the records show.

The group, a coalition of at least 33 activist organizations, is pushing a ballot initiative to amend the city charter to replace the police department with a public safety agency.

Since then, Vote Yes 4 Minneapolis has raked in slightly more than $1 million in total cash, according to campaign finance records released Tuesday, with Soros’ being the most significant contribution.

Other outside liberal groups have also stepped in to provide significant assistance to the efforts since the time of Soros’ donation.

Speaking to Israel’s YNet TV, Defence Minister Benny Gantz said: “This was an attack meant to send a message … Clearly we could do much more, and we hope we won’t arrive at that.”

Gantz said he believed a Palestinian faction had launched the rockets. Small Palestinian factions in Lebanon have fired sporadically on Israel in the past.

This week’s cross-border fire came after a suspected drone attack last Thursday on a tanker off the coast of Oman that Israel, the United States and Britain blamed on Iran. Two crew members, a Briton and a Romanian, were killed. Iran has denied any involvement.

The controversial pass, which will become ubiquitous from Monday, has sparked mass protests, with critics accusing President Emmanuel Macron of running a health “dictatorship”.

The deaths occurred in Turkey, where for the past week firefighters have battled blazes in several coastal resort towns. Ten other people have been hospitalised.

On Thursday, Turkish coastguards evacuated hundreds of villagers living close to a burning power plant in the Aegean province of Muğla.

In Italy, the number of large wildfires is estimated to have tripled this summer compared to the yearly average, causing millions of euros-worth of damage to the environment and economy in central and southern regions.

At the same time, the north of the country has been plagued by severe flooding and landslides in recent days, especially in Lombardy, where heavy rainfall caused Lake Como to burst its banks early on Thursday morning.

Commentary/Opinion:

Far left’s LONGTERM plan to demonize white conservatives EXPOSED

Glenn explains how it’s been the far left’s plan ‘for a very long time’ to slowly but surely use race to demonize all conservatives.

In fact, Glenn thinks, it started as far back as September 11th, 2001.

Now white supremacists have been equated to all white people, and all white people have been equated to conservatives.

They’ve created “two Americas,” Glenn says, and they’re destroying the culture, history, and values of the nation we once loved…
