Report: Cori Bush Defends Defund Police Push While Spending $130,000 on Personal Security, Including Cops

Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO)’s campaign has spent over $130,000 for personal security services for the congresswoman, despite Bush’s longtime support of efforts to defund the police.

Media reports of the spending surfaced again on Friday with the release of campaign spending numbers from the Federal Election Commission.

In a video from August when Bush was asked about security spending in an interview with CBS, she claimed her safety is separate from people’s claim that police keep the general public safe.

“Some critics say that move is hypocritical. What’s your response to those critics?” CBS asked.

They would rather I die? You would rather me die? Is that what you want to see? You want to see me die? You know, because that could be the alternative. So either I spent $70,000 on private security over the last few months, and I’m here standing now and able to speak, able to help save 11 million people from being evicted. Or – I could possibly have a death attempt on my life.

Moreover, the protection is needed because the threats are coming from white supremacists, Bush claimed:

I have private security because my body is worth being on this planet right now.  I have private security because they, the white supremacist racist narrative that they drive into this country. The fact that they don’t care that this black woman that has put her life on the line.

 

Fox News reported on the latest numbers

The cash was dished out to a handful of firms, including Peace Security, RS&T Security Consulting, Aegis Logistics, Whole Armor Executive Protection & Security, and Nathaniel Davis, whose payments are sent to the same address as her campaign headquarters. Bush has now pushed more than $130,000 from her campaign’s coffers into private security services over the past six months.

Shortly after Bush’s vigorous defense of the payments, St. Louis’ KMOV4 discovered through obtained surveillance camera footage, that Bush had hired two sheriff’s deputies, Tylance Jackson and Maurice Thompson, as part of her security.

The discovery led to the termination of Jackson and Thompson, who had failed to get approval for the side gig, St. Louis Sheriff Vernon Betts said at the time.

Fox News said Bush’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment on the new spending figures.

“And let me just say this last thing: My security is not against communal violence,” Bush said in the August interview. “My security is not to keep me safe from the people of St. Louis. My security is to keep me safe from those racist attempts made against my life. Now, if you want to do something about that, stand up and do something about that.”

Kyrsten Sinema Flees To Europe On A Fundraising Trip With Biden’s Budget In Limbo And The White House ‘Not Happy’ About What She Wants In The Multi-Trillion Dollar Reconciliation Package

Moderate Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is in Europe this week fundraising as President Joe Biden’s multi-trillion reconciliation bill remains in limbo. 

The New York Times reported Wednesday that Sinema had participated in fundraising for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, with one source saying an event had occurred in Paris. 

The chairman of the DSCC, Sen. Gary Peters, is also in Europe this week, and held a ticketed fundraiser in London where American expats could give as much as $36,500, however Sinema’s name was not on the invitation. 

Her office refused to tell The Times how long she would be abroad, what countries she was visiting and if she was doing additional fundraising for her own campaign. 

However, the newspaper found out that her political staff had reached out to people to set up meetings in Paris and London.  

Her travels come after she reportedly told the White House what she wants to see in the reconciliation bill – and Biden’s team isn’t happy about it.      

‘I have already told the White House what I am willing to do and what I’m not willing to do. I’m not mysterious. It’s not that I can’t make up my mind. I’m communicating it to them in detail. They just don’t like that they’re hearing,’ she recently told a Senate Democratic colleague, who then told Politico’s Playbook about the conversation.  

Now with a debt ceiling crisis waved off until early December, the White House and Congress’ full attention can return to crafting what’s in the reconciliation bill, which Biden has conceded will no longer have a pricetag of $3.5 trillion. 

After Playbook’s report came out, press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about its accuracy and whether she could share where Sinema stood. 

Psaki only confirmed that the White House had been in touch. 

‘We have – of course. We’ve been in consistent contact with Senator Sinema from a high level. Of course, as you know, the president has spoken with her and met with her a number of times. She’s been in touch with senior members of our White House team. And we’re working with her, we’re working with Senator Manchin, we’re working with a range of Democrats to move this legislation forward,’ Psaki said.    

Sinema and West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin remain the moderate hold-outs, but their priorities for what’s in the bill aren’t aligned. 

Sinema’s comment to her colleague represents her beating back the perception that she’s playing coy about what she supports.

The government and media are either dumb or liars – or perhaps both

North Dakota is following a similar track to Vermont, even though it is not as “fully vaccinated.” North Dakota is, however, one of the northernmost states in the country, which again points to lack of vitamin D as a risk factor.

“In North Dakota, active cases jumped from 143 on July 5 to 4,485 on Oct. 7 while hospitalizations rose from 9 to 184,” The Epoch Times added.

Hilariously, the government and the mainstream media are going out of their way to obfuscate the truth about vitamin D. Not a single mainstream news outlet has even so much as mentioned vitamin D, while government officials such as Donald Trump appointee Scott Atlas are simply calling it a “seasonal” anomaly.

“We’ve seen some kind of seasonality, or really cycles where we have seen these surges,” added Adnan Munkarah, executive vice president and chief clinical officer for the Henry Ford Health System in Michigan.

These and other “experts” say they just cannot figure out why people in the north always seem to get sicker as winter approaches, while people in the south, which are less impacted by changes in the sun’s angle, fare much better.

Danyelle McNeill, the public information officer for the Arkansas Department of Health, told The Epoch Times in an email that she believes this “is likely due to a decrease in spread of the Delta variant due to a combination of an increasing proportion of the population that is vaccinated and an increasing proportion of the population that has gained temporary immunity because they have been infected and survived COVID-19.”

“My routine includes up to 10,000 IU of D & 30 mg of Zinc, elderberry caps, K2, extra Vit C & E and 1 or 2 high protein (high supplement) shakes,” wrote one man at The Epoch Times about what he takes to stay healthy during the changing of the seasons.

‘One pill can kill:’ DEA, Snapchat, parents confront deadly fentanyl

Fancy an Oxycontin pill to take the edge off? A little cocaine to celebrate?

For even the youngest kids, finding recreational drugs has been as easy as a quick search of online platforms like Snapchat, where dealers have brazenly showcased their wares. But the drugs that were delivered, sometimes right to a young teen’s front door, were not the real thing. They actually contained fentanyl, a cheap synthetic opioid some 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine.

It took just one pill to kill Alexander Neville, 14, a smart, curious kid prone to a philosophical and distinctively teenage anxiety. And Jessica Shely Filson, 29, eager to celebrate a milestone. And Daniel Puerta, 16, and Alexandra Capelouto, 20, and thousands of others who weren’t addicts struggling with long-term addiction, but young people doing what their parents might have done 25 or 30 years ago, before deadly fentanyl infected just about every street drug.

An increasingly alarming body count has prompted the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to launch its first public safety alert in six years, warning of a sharp increase in fake prescription pills containing not only fentanyl, but methamphetamine as well.

Parents of the dead have produced “Dead on Arrival,” a gut-wrenching, 20-minute documentary/public safety announcement that they hope every parent will watch — with their children.

And Snap Inc. has hardened its push to remove illegal drug sales from its platform, “investing in proactive detection and collaboration with law enforcement to hold drug dealers accountable for the harm they are causing our community.”

The tidal wave they’re trying to stem is enormous.

‘One pill can kill’

In Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties, according to the DEA, there were 2,234 drug-caused deaths in 2019, and 3,702 in 2020, a 59% increase. There were 755 deaths involving fentanyl in 2019, and 1,887 in 2020. That’s a 150% increase.

Data lags, but the U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates that 4,825 Californians lost their lives to fentanyl in the year ending in February 2021, compared to 2,051 who died in the year ending in February 2020. That’s a 135% increase.

“DEA’s Public Safety Alert, the first in six years, seeks to raise public awareness of a significant nationwide surge in counterfeit pills that are mass-produced by criminal drug networks in labs, deceptively marketed as legitimate prescription pills, and are killing unsuspecting Americans at an unprecedented rate,” the DEA said in its announcement of the “One Pill Can Kill” campaign.

Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s Campaign for VA Governor Just Died of a Self-Inflicted Wound…Suggests Parents Concerned About Divisive CRT Are Racist [Video]

Democrat Terry McAuliffe just did it again. He hurt his campaign with another self-inflicted wound. This is the second tone-deaf comment he’s made in recent weeks where he arrogantly gives an answer that is very offensive to parents. This guy really knows how to turn off voters. It’s hard to believe McAuliffe has been in politics for 43 years.

McAuliffe was being interviewed by local news in Virginia when he suggested parents concerned with divisive Critical Race Theory (CRT) are racist. He went on to refuse to define CRT.

 

 

 

Video below of McAuliffe’s first self-inflicted campaign wound saying recently parents should stay out of educating their children:

Karl Marx would be proud of what gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe said during a debate with other candidates for governor of Virginia.

The Clinton crony was explaining his position that parents should not be allowed to determine what books and content are used in the curriculum of students.

“I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”

 

 

McAuliffe couldn’t be more wrong. Check out one recent case of a parent who stepped up to take gay pedophilia out of a school library:

Virginia mom Stacy Langton spoke at a recent Fairfax County Public School Board Meeting as a very concerned parent. She spoke about her concern for the content of books found in the school library.

The video clip below shows Stacy Langton who told the school board that she was able to check out the two books at the Fairfax High School library she had seen other parents protest:

“Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison and “Gender Queer: A Memoir” by Maia Kobabe

Langton told the school board: Both of these books include pedophilia. Sex between men and boys … One book describes a fourth-grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male. The other book has detailed illustrations of a man having sex with a boy.”

Blue Origin employees allege toxic work environment, safety issues

More than 20 people who work or have worked for Blue Origin have banded together to accuse the company of a toxic culture of sexual harassment, and of cutting corners concerning safety standards.

More than 20 people who work or have worked for Jeff Bezos’ space company Blue Origin have banded together to accuse the company of a toxic culture of sexual harassment, and of cutting corners concerning safety standards.

The ex-workers and workers for the Amazon founder’s company are spearheaded by the ex-chief of communications, Alexandra Abrams. Together, they have put together an open letter and published it online.

According to local outlet WRDW, the letter states that “numerous senior leaders have been known to be consistently inappropriate with women.” In addition, the letter accuses management of being “unapproachable” on these issues.

Also at issue was the breakneck speed at which the company desired to operate. The company already operates a few rocket launches per year, including the flight on which Bezos himself was on board, and another one on which the famous original “Star Trek” protagonist William Shatner is to be a passenger in.

In what could be called a modern-day space race, Bezos is in close competition with his fellow billionaires Elon Musk (SpaceX) and Richard Branson (Virgin Galactic).

Parents and a civil rights group are asking a court to force California to immediately halt Aztec prayers in public school classrooms that are required by the California State Board of Education’s Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum.

This novel curriculum includes a section on “Affirmation, Chants, and Energizers.” Among these is the “In Lak Ech Affirmation,” which invokes five Aztec deities—Tezkatlipoka, Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, Xipe Totek, and Hunab Ku. The pagan prayers address the deities both by name and traditional titles, recognize them as sources of power and knowledge, invoke their assistance, and give them thanks.

Aztec religious practices included the cutting out of human hearts and the flaying of victims and wearing of their skin.

The Whistleblowers’ Movement Should be Prepared for Anti-Chinese Crisis during the Path of Taking Down the CCP

Translated by: MOS Art Team-Redd

Yesterday, in Mr. Miles Guo’s live broadcast, due to his comprehensive intelligence on the coronavirus and vaccines catastrophe around the world, an anti-Chinese undercurrent is brewing among governments and even the people.

Mr. Miles mentioned the May 1998 riots of Indonesia incident that makes him grief and indignation, and the vivid tragedy is still in his mind. He once met with the former president’s family members of Indonesia and publicly expressed “as a Chinese, he will revenge for those overseas Chinese people who have murdered in that incident.” which stupefied the audience. In Miles’ words, “there were 370,000 Chinese people have died. Now, Communist China manufactured this global coronavirus disaster that will eventually be counted on every Chinese people overseas.”

Even though Mr. Miles Guo and tens of thousands of the Whistleblowers’ Movement followers have been working for spreading the truth of the coronavirus and the evil of the CCP in the past four years, the consequences that the CCP have made cannot be cleaned up shortly. Every Comrade-in-arms should be brave in facing the current situation. The Whistleblowers Movement and the New Federal State of China followers should keep spreading the truth of the virus and vaccines.

House passes bill to force young women to sign up for the draft

House passes bill to force young women to sign up for the draft


The National Defense Authorization Act was passed by 181 Democrats and 135 Republicans on Thursday night.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — New legislation mandating that girls register for the military draft is now one major step closer to implementation.

The requirement forcing young women between the ages of 18 and 26 to register for Selective Service now awaits only Senate reconciliation and the president’s signature after the U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday night to pass a crucial national defense bill containing altered language forcing young women to be drafted alongside men in the event of future military conscription.

The $778 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), an annual defense package, was passed after 181 Democrats and 135 Republicans in the House voted to approve it.

Only 38 Democrats and 75 Republicans voted against the legislation.

The policy bill will now be punted back to the Senate for reconciliation with an earlier version of the legislative package already approved by the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC).

The SASC had voted 23-2 to approve its version of the bill in a closed-door session on July 21, just days after it was announced that language in the existing draft law had been modified to eliminate reference to “males” and instead require “All Americans” between the ages of 18 and 26 to sign up for Selective Service.

Senate Armed Services Chair Jack Reed wrote the draft of the proposed changes in July, tacking them onto the NDAA for the 2022 fiscal year, a piece of legislation Congress was already poised to pass.

As reported by The Hill, the full Senate is expected to consider the House’s approved version of the NDAA in October, after which the approved and reconciled act will be sent to the president’s desk to be signed into law.

The House’s move to approve the changes Thursday comes after months of debate, with a handful of Republicans pushing back on the modifications made to the existing Selective Service law.

Under the new language, failure of young women to register for Selective Service would make them subject to the same penalties as men, including fines of up to $250,000 or imprisonment for up to five years.
