  • 911 Recording Release of Lauren Boebert's Family Attacking Neighbors

    Law enforcement officials in Garfield County, Colorado, have released audio recordings of 911 calls they received from neighbors of Rep Lauren Boebert (R-CO), complaining her kids were speeding on the street, her husband was driving drunk and he drove over their mailbox and was trying to start a fight. Chasing The Truth About Lauren Boebert Was Paid Escort According to the report from the Denver Post, the altercation happened on Aug 4, and led to a spate of calls requesting deputies respond. As the Post's Conrad Swanson wrote, "Garfield County Sheriff’s deputies decided to let neighbors of U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert settle a dispute between themselves and the congresswoman’s husband after he reportedly threatened them and destroyed their mailbox. But 911 calls from the incident, obtained by The Denver Post, show just how upset and nervous the neighbors were over their run-in with Boebert’s husband, Jayson Boebert." Lauren Boebert husband exposed his penis to minors According to the report, a neighbor asked one of Boebert's sons to stop speeding down the street in a dune buggy, which set off a dispute that then escalated. One caller to 911 stated, "He's going like 50 miles an hour and this is a residential lane, there's kids. We tried to stop him, and he'd just freakin' cuss at us and just left." Another complained about Boebert's husband and the GOP lawmaker, telling the dispatcher, "I’m sure he’s loaded to the hilt. Do you know who his wife is? Lauren Boebert. She’s loaded. They all have guns. He just got chest to chest, face to face, looking to fight.” The report adds, "Jayson Boebert did not respond to a message seeking comment, nor did the second neighbor. However, over the phone, the second neighbor told the 911 dispatcher that Jayson Boebert had driven to their house with his son 'trying to claim that someone took a swing at his kid and nobody did.'" adding, "He calls Jayson Boebert 'dumb as a post' and 'irrational,' then expresses concern about the being threatened and more."

  • Attack on FBI building in Ohio amid Republican Rhetoric

    Police were locked in a standoff on Thursday with an armed man who tried to breach the FBI building in Cincinnati, Ohio, earlier in the day before fleeing and exchanging gunfire with officers, authorities said. The incident began at about 9:15 a.m. (1315 GMT) when the suspect unsuccessfully tried to enter the FBI's visitor screening facility. He then fled the area in a white vehicle, heading northbound on Interstate 71, the FBI said. About 20 minutes later, a state trooper spotted the vehicle in nearby Warren County and attempted a traffic stop. A chase ensued as the suspect fired his weapon at the state trooper, Ohio State Highway Patrol spokesman Nathan Dennis said during a news briefing. The vehicle eventually came to a stop and gunfire was exchanged between the suspect and police officers, he said. No police were injured, Dennis said. "The scene is still active and there is still an active standoff situation at this time," Dennis said. Several highways in the Cincinnati area were closed as a result. "Law enforcement has traded shots with a male suspect who is wearing a gray shirt and body armor," Clinton County Emergency Management Agency said earlier, urging people in the area to stay inside and lock their doors. NBC News reported that the suspect was armed with an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle and fired a nail gun into the FBI building. Details and the motive were unclear. The FBI has been the subject of online threats since its agents searched former President Donald Trump's Florida estate this week as part of an investigation into documents removed from the White House as he was leaving office in January 2021.

  • Ron DeSantis Traveling To Swing States For Trump Backed Candidates

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is set to hit the campaign trail this month for several of former President Trump’s endorsed candidates in a handful of 2022 battlegrounds. DeSantis will travel to Arizona, New Mexico, Ohio and Pennsylvania this month for a series of rallies hosted and organized by the conservative group Turning Point Action, the governor’s campaign announced Monday. Fox News first reported the news. Those rallies will see the Florida governor stump for several Republican candidates, including Ohio Senate nominee J.D. Vance, Pennsylvania gubernatorial nominee Doug Mastriano, Arizona Senate nominee Blake Masters and Arizona gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake. The rallies are being billed as an effort to “unite” the GOP ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, with Turning Points Action founder and president Charlie Kirk telling Fox News that DeSantis “has become the model for a new conservative movement” in the United States. “That he is willing to throw the full weight of his support behind Kari, Blake, and JD tells you everything you need to know about these incredible candidates who I endorse and support 100%,” Kirk said. The rally circuit will reportedly take DeSantis to Roswell, N.M., to stump for Rep. Yvette Herrell on Aug. 14. That same day, he’ll travel to Phoenix to campaign for Masters and Lake. Five days later, on Aug. 19, DeSantis will travel to Pittsburgh for a rally supporting Mastriano and then to Youngstown, Ohio, where he’ll attend a rally for Vance. Each of the candidates that DeSantis is rallying for has been endorsed by Trump, with the exception of Herrell, though she previously won the former president’s support during her successful 2020 campaign for her House seat. DeSantis’s travel plans are the latest evidence of his growing sway among Republican voters nationally amid speculation that he could mount a 2024 bid for the GOP presidential nomination.

  • FBI search at Mar-a-Lago for classified documents & safe contents

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe reacts to the FBI executing a search warrant at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, as part of an investigation into the handling of presidential documents, including classified documents, that may have been brought to Florida, three people familiar with the situation say.

  • Ted Cruz & Steve Bannon call for Violence Against Blue States

    Appearing on MSNBC's "The Katie Phang Show," former Republican National Committee head Michael Steele slapped down Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) And Convicted Criminal Steve Bannon for urging violence during a speech at the Texas CPAC conference over the weekend. As reported by Rolling Stone, an over-the-top Cruz told the crowd, "It’s like the old Roman Colosseum where you slam on a breastplate and you grab a battle axe and you go fight the barbarians,” before adding. “As they say in the military world, it is a target-rich environment.” That led Steele to call out the Texas Republican. "It is more fascism than farce," Steele began. "It is more concern than conservatism and it really is about how we as a citizen respond to this. How we push back against it. We are not opponents of the each other, we disagree from time to time on big and small issues. But our first inclination as Americans is not to go and beat the crap out of the neighbor just because they have a yard sign that we don't like." "This is not the America that these folks are projecting, that they want," he continued. "I mean, this is all when you have heard is sheer projection from Trump, from Steve Bannon, from Ted Cruz -- just sit the hell down, please. Stop it. You're not serving the people of Texas, you haven't done that since you have been there, the reality of it is. But you find the grift, you find the hot rhetoric, you make yourself seem like you are the big man on campus and you get things done. But that is not what this is about, this is not about getting things done." Original Story by MSNBC Disclaimer & User Agreement

  • AG Garland Charges officers involved in Breonna Taylor death

    Joshua Jaynes, the former Louisville Metro Police Department detective who lied on the search warrant application that led to the "no-knock" raid on Breonna Taylor’s home where she ended up dead, has been arrested and charged by the FBI, The Daily Beast reports. "The federal charges announced today allege that members of a Police Investigations Unit falsified the affidavit used to obtain the search warrant of Ms. Taylor's home and that this act violated federal civil rights laws, and that those violations resulted in Ms. Taylor's death," Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a news conference. In the application, Jaynes wrote that he “verified with a U.S. Postal Inspector” that Taylor’s former boyfriend, who was a suspected drug dealer, had been receiving mail at her address. An investigation later discovered that Jaynes never verified the information and only repeated the false claim of another officer, Jonathan Mattingly. Taylor had also broken up with the suspect around two years earlier and were no longer friends. The ex, Jamarcus Glover, was in custody at the time of the raid. IN OTHER NEWS: Election Denier Kari Lake Wins Nomination in Arizona Election She Said Was Rigged The raid startled Taylor's boyfriend at the time, causing him to think they were being robbed. He then grabbed his legally owned firearm and opened fire, striking Mattingly in the leg and prompting officers to return fire, which resulted in Taylor being struck eight times, resulting in her death. Jaynes was fired last year. He was arrested early Thursday morning and is charged with federal civil rights violations. "We share, but we cannot fully imagine, the grief felt by Breanna Taylor's loved ones and all of those affected by the events of March 13, 2020. Breonna Taylor should be alive today," Garland said.

  • Cyber Ninjas LIED About Arizona Voter Fraud Findings

    After spending months reviewing the 2020 election in Arizona last year, Cyber Ninjas, the firm overseeing the so-called audit said it believed nearly 300 dead people may have voted. It was one of a series of allegations the company made as part of an effort to sow doubt about the election results in Arizona. It turned out not to be true. After investigating the allegations thoroughly, analysts found just one person who was actually dead at the time of the election. “After spending hundreds of hours reviewing these allegations, our investigators were able to determine that only one of the 282 individuals on the list was deceased at the time of the election. All other persons listed as deceased were found to be current voters,” Arizona’s attorney general, Mark Brnovich, a Republican, wrote in a letter on Monday to state senate president, Karen Fann, who authorized the review. Brnovich added: “Our agents investigated all individuals that Cyber Ninjas reported as dead, and many were very surprised to learn they were allegedly deceased.” Experts have long said the review and Cyber Ninjas’ conclusion were misleading and untrue. Election officials in Maricopa county, the location of the review, released an extensive report earlier this year debunking the claims. The letter came a day before Arizona’s primary, where baseless allegations about the 2020 election continue to swirl. Republicans who continue to deny the 2020 election results are on the verge of clinching the party’s nomination for governor and secretary of state. Brnovich is seeking the GOP nomination for secretary of state, but trails Blake Masters, a Trump-endorsed candidate who has embraced lies about the 2020 race. Trump has railed against Brnovich for not doing enough to overturn the election. Officials also investigated reports of dead voters from “other sources”, alleging 409 dead voters and another report flagging nearly 6,000 registrations as potentially deceased. “These claims were thoroughly investigated and resulted in only a handful of potential cases. Some were so absurd the names and birthdates didn’t even match the deceased, and others included dates of death after the election,” he wrote. “While our office has successfully prosecuted other instances of dead voters, these cases were ultimately determined to be isolated instances.” “We supported the Arizona Senate’s ability to conduct an audit of Maricopa county’s elections and understand the importance of reviewing the results. However, allegations of widespread deceased voters from the Senate Audit and other complaints received by the [Election Integrity Unit] are insufficient and not corroborated,” the letter ends.

  • Marjorie Taylor Greene's Christian Nationalism beliefs go beyond Treasonous

    Far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia set off yet another controversy when, during a Saturday, July 23 interview conducted at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Florida, she proudly described herself as a "Christian nationalist" and urged the Republican Party to openly embrace an ideology of "Christian nationalism." One of the people who is calling Greene out is Amanda Tyler, executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty (BJC) and the main organizer for Christians Against Christian Nationalism. Greene told Taylor Hanson of the right-wing Next News Network, "We need to be the party of nationalism, and I'm a Christian. And I say it proudly: We should be Christian nationalists. When Republicans learn to represent most of the people that vote for them, then we will be the party that continues to grow without having to chase down certain identities or chase down certain segments of people." In an op-ed published by CNN's website on July 28, Tyler lays out some reasons why she finds Greene's "Christian nationalist" talk incredibly dangerous. "For years, I have been closely tracking Christian nationalism and sounding the alarm about it," Hanson explains. "Greene's recent comments mark an alarming shift in the public conversation about Christian nationalism. Until recently, the public figures who most embrace Christian nationalism in their rhetoric and policies have either denied its existence or claimed that those of us who are calling it out are engaging in name-calling. But Greene is evidently reading from a different script now, explicitly embracing the identity as her own and urging others to join her." Tyler continues, "She is not alone in doing so. Greene's embrace of Christian nationalism follows closely after troubling remarks from Colorado Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert: 'The church is supposed to direct the government, the government is not supposed to direct the church,' she said at a church two days before her primary election and victory in late June. 'I'm tired of this separation of church and state junk.'" Tyler describes Christian nationalism as "a political ideology and cultural framework that merges Christian and American identities, distorting both the Christian faith and America's promise of religious freedom." "Though not new, Christian nationalism has been exploited in recent years by politicians like former President Donald Trump to further an 'us vs. them' mentality and send a message that only Christians can be 'real' Americans," Tyler observes. "Growing support for Christian nationalism comes at a time when the political ideology behind it poses increasingly urgent threats to American democracy and to religious freedom. Perhaps the most chilling example of Christian nationalism came on the most public of world stages, from some Trump supporters during the January 6 insurrection." On February 9, BJC published a disturbing report that details the role Christian nationalism played in the January 6, 2021 insurrection. "I care about dismantling Christian nationalism both because I'm a practicing Christian and because I'm a patriotic American," Tyler writes. "And no, those identities are not the same. As Christians, we can't allow Greene, Boebert or Trump to distort our faith without a fight." Disclaimer & User Agreement

  • January 6th Committee SEASON ONE!. Missing AG Garland

    #gop#jan6committee#jan6 Will Merrick Garland get around to charging the January 6th plotters, including those who are elected officials, not to mention the chief plotter himself Donald J Trump. I am not sure, Garland will. But I will say the public grows weary of a two-rule system, that the rich and the elected commit crimes with immunity. And the poor and those that pay the bills for this country, are arrested, ticketed, and denied the ability to protest without fear of arrest. The Injustice department seems not to care, too much about the public’s rights being violated, or not being treated fairly. So, no. I do not believe Merrick Garland will ever get around to prosecuting elected officials, or the chief plotter. Because in the United States of America, elected officials are royalty, that makes them above the law. We are simply just the peasants, who pay the bills. While being fooled and misled from an early age, that all people are created equal and treated fairly. Disclaimer & User Agreement

  • Matt Gaetz likely in prison for child sex trafficking by 2024

    #mattgaetz #scandal #joelgreenberg #sextrafficking CNN’s Erin Burnett asked Short to react to part of a speech Gaetz gave Monday at a conference organized by Turning Point USA, a right-wing youth activist group. Gaetz declared, “Our America is proudly ultra MAGA, not some low energy roadside RINO safari. On that note, let me just say what everybody here knows: Mike Pence will never be president. Nice guy, not a leader.” “I think the vice president is a very good person, I think he would make a great president,” Short replied. “But I do think Matt Gaetz will likely be in jail in 2024, so it’s hard to take his opinion too seriously on who should or shouldn’t be president.” Burnett pressed Short on whether he believes Gaetz will actually be convicted of child sex trafficking, to which he responded, “I certainly hope so. The evidence is quite clear that he engaged in that. And so yes, I would be surprised if he is not convicted of that by 2024.” Gaetz has been under investigation by the Department of Justice for allegedly paying for sex with a 17-year-old girl and violating federal sex trafficking laws. He has denied any wrongdoing. If Gaetz is convicted of child sex trafficking, he would face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison. Given that the 2024 election is still over 2 years away, it is possible Gaetz could be released before then if he were to receive a lighter sentence. Nevertheless, Short’s comments suggest he believes Gaetz will be convicted and serve at least part of his sentence by the time voters head to the polls in 2024. Matt Gaetz’s legal problems all stem from attending sex parties with other elected republican officials, arranged, by Matt Gaetz’s good friend Joel Greenberg former Seminole County tax assessor. Where he met the alleged 17-year-old for sex, and later traveled outside the United States with her to continue the sexual affair. According to witness statements, Matt Gaetz paid his good friend, Joel Greenberg for the girl’s services through Venmo electronic transfers. Greenberg also accepted payments from other republican elected officials that attended the sex parties, the girls were recruited through so-called “sugar daddy” websites. Greenberg has become a vital cooperating witness, with the prosecution in building a case against Matt Gaetz, and other sexual offenders involved in these sex parties hosted by Greenberg. Greenberg is facing 12 years in jail after he pleaded guilty to six federal crimes, including sex trafficking of a child, identity theft, stalking, wire fraud, and conspiracy to bribe a public official. Prior to his sentencing date, Greenberg's lawyer filed a motion asking a judge for permission to submit additional information to the court under seal related to his cooperation in other criminal investigations. "Pursuant to his plea agreement with the Government and to mitigate the significant penalties he faces, Mr. Greenberg has been cooperating with federal prosecutors in active investigations currently being conducted by the United States Attorney's Office in the Middle District of Florida and the Department of Justice in Washington D.C. as well as in other jurisdictions," Greenberg's attorney, Fritz Scheller, wrote in the filing to the Florida court.
