The suspect charged with shooting and killing 71-year-old Woom Sing Tse in the middle of the day in Chicago this week had been arrested at least four times before with two of those offenses being gun-related.

Alphonso Joyner, 23, allegedly gunned down Tse from his vehicle near Haines Elementary School during recess on Tuesday.

Joyner is pictured on surveillance camera footage exiting a silver sedan to reshoot Tse before making his exit towards the Kennedy Expressway where he was later apprehended, along with a handgun and extended magazine.

“Tse was transported to Stroger Hospital where he was pronounced dead,” WGNTV reported.

Colton Dixon Devastated That 2,363 Babies are Killed Every Day in Abortions: “It’s Just Insane”

An American Idol finalist and popular Christian singer, Dixon and his wife celebrated the birth of their first children, identical twin daughters, a little over a year ago. He recently spoke about his pro-life views with Live Action, including the heartbreak he feels when he thinks of the 2,363 children who are killed every day in abortions in the U.S.

“That’s insane, it’s just insane,” Dixon said, reflecting on the number. “And it breaks my heart, especially after having twin girls and thinking they could be amongst that number. It’s just heartbreaking.”

He said people need to get back to putting others first if society wants to end abortions.

January 6 Police Beating Victim Speaks: ‘I Could Have Died’

The first time Victoria White visited the nation’s capital was on January 6, 2021. Listening to President Trump’s speech—with her teen daughter and three friends alongside her—would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, White thought.

Instead, the day turned into a personal nightmare with real-time flashbacks to her years as a victim of domestic abuse.

Fierce battles between police and protesters took place inside the tunnel, which leads to a set of doors that allows access to the building. It is the location where Rosanne Boyland, a 34-year-old Trump supporter from Georgia, died.

White, 39, found herself in the tunnel near Boyland—and her harrowing account describes nothing short of criminal misconduct by still-unidentified members of the D.C. Metropolitan Police department.

GOP senators Thursday vented their frustration with a deal Minority Leader Mitch McConnell negotiated to enable Democrats to raise the debt ceiling – as most Republicans went to the Senate floor to vote against it in a procedural vote that passed 64-36 will unanimous Democrat support.  

GOP senators Thursday vented their frustration with a deal Minority Leader Mitch McConnell negotiated to enable Democrats to raise the debt ceiling – as most Republicans went to the Senate floor to vote against it in a procedural vote that passed 64-36 will unanimous Democrat support.  

“I voted ‘no’ on cloture, I don’t think that’s the right direction to go,” Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., told Fox News. “Democrats had an opportunity to be able to do it by reconciliation. We’ve been clear on it since July. And we should have stuck with that simple thing.” 

“I just don’t like the process and the precedent that it sets,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said. 

The deal between McConnell, R-Ky., and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., used a bill to avoid Medicare cuts as a vehicle for language allowing a one-time simple-majority vote to raise the debt ceiling in the Senate. 

Senate votes to repeal Biden’s job-killing vaccine mandate

Sen. Ron Johnson Has Some Big Questions For The Self-Appointed “COVID Gods” In Tech And Media

On this episode of “The Federalist Radio Hour,” Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss Big Tech censorship and how the Silicon Valley giants have assisted bureaucratic “COVID gods” in dictating the pandemic agenda since the beginning.

“At some point in time, you know, conservatives have to use what platforms are out there. I don’t think we should abandon those, but we need to start gravitating toward outlets that aren’t going to censor us. Now that’s a real shame,” Johnson added. 

Johnson said he believes that without Big Tech’s influence, people in the United States would have addressed COVID-19 more effectively.

Matt Gaetz and the Dangers of Prosecutorial Leaks For Everyone

It’s been 8 months since the NYT claimed the DOJ was investigating “whether” Gaetz committed crimes.

He’s still not been charged with anything, and thus has no chance to contest the innuendo, yet millions believe he’s guilty. That why prosecutorial leaks are so abusive.

If there’s evidence of Matt Gaetz’s guilt, then charge him with crimes, accord him the due process guaranteed by the Constitution, and send him to prison if a jury of his peers finds him guilty.

The day may come when that happens.

But thus far, the only apparent criminality is by prosecutors who seemed to have leaked this investigation.

General Valery Gerasimov, chief of the Russian military’s General Staff, warned Ukraine on December 9 against trying to launch an offensive against Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine, saying any such action will be “suppressed.”

Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Ministry accused Ukraine of moving heavy weaponry near the front line in eastern Ukraine with the support of NATO members.

The statements come two days after Biden and President Vladimir Putin held a video call amid Western concerns about the presence of tens of thousands of Russian troops near Ukraine’s border that has triggered fears of a new Russian invasion of the country.

U.K. To Send Army Engineers To Poland Amid ‘Migration Pressure’ From Belarus

Britain says it will send 140 military engineers to NATO ally Poland this month to provide support at its border with Belarus, where the West says Minsk is orchestrating on ongoing migration crisis.

Specialists from the 32 Engineer Regiment will work with the Polish military at the border with Belarus, including providing “infrastructure support,” the Defense Ministry said in a statement on December 9.

Belarus is engaged in a bitter diplomatic standoff with the West over authoritarian leader Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s crackdown on dissent since a disputed presidential election last year, and what the EU has called his “weaponization” of mainly Middle Eastern migrants to create a crisis on Belarus’s border with Poland, Latvia, and Lithuania.

ESG IS HERE: Citi’s latest step to further the GREAT RESET

Glenn has warned about ESG scores — environment, social, and governance — for months now. They’re a key tenet to the Great Reset and could be used to control YOUR finances.

If you have a low ESG score — due to certain purchases or investments the far-left deems ‘un-woke’ — then you could face major difficulties securing loans or other services from the world’s biggest banks.

Now, Citi just announce its latest decision to move this plan one step further.

Per Bloomberg, ‘Citigroup Inc. will eventually expect borrowers to have a credible plan for measuring and reducing their carbon footprint as part of the bank’s pledge to achieve net-zero greenhouse-gas emissions.’ ESG IS HERE!
