6 Men Shot, 2 Dead in Separate Shootings Across Baltimore Thursday Night

Baltimore City police are investigating at least four shootings that involve at least six victims. Two of the victims have died from their injuries.

The shootings span across the city and happened within a matter of hours.

They all started with a triple shooting in northwest Baltimore just after 6 p.m.

The shooting happened on Reisterstown Road near Bryant Avenue. Police said that’s where they found three people with gunshot wounds.

A 20-year-old man was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said. The two other men, who were shot, have non-life-threatening injuries.

The next shooting happened about 20 minutes later on Eutaw Place near Robert Street. That’s where police said a 30-year-old man was shot in the thigh. Police said he’s recovering at an area hospital.

About an hour later, around 7:15 p.m., someone shot a 46-year-old man on Normal Avenue near Regester Lane in east Baltimore…

AOC Hit With Second Ethics Complaint Over ‘Tax the Rich’ Theatrics at the Met

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been hit with a second ethics complaint over her attendance at the elitist Met Gala on Monday evening while wearing a “tax the rich” dress.

According to the Daily Caller‘s Andrew Kerr, AOC may have violated ‘a myriad of House ethics rules,’ per a complaint by conservative watchdog group, the National Legal and Policy Center, which says that AOC’s acceptance of free tickets to the event for herself and her boyfriend — which reportedly cost upwards of $35,000 — may have violated House Gift rules.

Apple Banned FlickType’s Keyboard From the App Store, Then Introduced the Feature Itself

Apple is getting sued over the new QuickPath keyboard on the Apple Watch Series 7. The developer of a similar app, FlickType, took to Twitter to announce that he plans to bring up the new feature in his ongoing lawsuit against Apple if it reaches trial.

Kosta Eleftheriou had to remove FlickType from the App Store after the tech giant wrote to him saying the app was “not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines,” — yet Apple then went ahead and launched the feature itself.

Associated Press Calls Religious Exemptions to Coronavirus Vaccines a ‘Bluff’

The Associated Press (AP) described religious exemptions to the coronavirus vaccines as a “loophole” and a “bluff” in its report published Thursday.

“Religious objections, once used only sparingly around the country to get exempted from various required vaccines, are becoming a much more widely used loophole against the COVID-19 shot,” the AP article by Colleen Long and Andrew Demillo declared.

Bill Would Expand Florida Ban on Critical Race Theory Beyond K-12 Public Schools

The Florida Board of Education (BOE) approved a rule in June that mandates K-12 public schools teach American history based on “universal principles stated in the Declaration of Independence” and bans “critical race theory” (CRT) from being taught.

The original rule, based on an executive order issued by Gov. Ron DeSantis, barred teachers from attempting “to indoctrinate or persuade students to a particular point of view” but never mentioned CRT.

The rule ultimately adopted by the BOE excludes the “indoctrinate” language but cites CRT in outlawing “fiction or theory masquerading as facts, such as critical race theory” in K-12 schools.

But there’s still too much CRT indoctrinating going on, says Rep. Randy Fine, R-Palm Bay, who is calling on Florida lawmakers to expand and codify DeSantis’ order and the BOE rule banning it when they convene Jan. 11 for their 2022 legislative session.

Bombshell: FBI Scandal Over Sexually Abused Gymnasts Rises to Criminal Level, Says Inspector General

Michael Horowitz, Department of Justice inspector general, dropped a bomb during the Senate hearing to get to the bottom of the hideous and inexplicable FBI cover-up of sexual abuse of the women’s USA gymnastics team that led to the molestation of hundreds of female athletes.

Mandy O’Brien, a body language expert, put out the video below analyzing FBI chief Christopher Wray and his weasel-like responses to the grilling. Not only is the body language analysis fascinating, but this clip shows that the DOJ inspector general himself believes the actions of the FBI may have been criminal in nature. “We found that they violated criminal law sufficiently,” he said adding that he had referred the agents involved for prosecution. The DOJ inexplicably refused to prosecute and refused to even send a representative to be questioned by the Senate panel.

CNN’s Don Lemon Urges Viewers “It’s Time to Start Shaming” Unvaccinated People

CNN host Don Lemon during his Wednesday prime time segment urged Americans to start “shaming” and shunning “stupid” unvaccinated people. He told CNN co-host Chris Cuomo that society must leave the unvaccinated “behind” as they are ultimately “harmful to the greater good.”

The hugely provocative and controversial statements came during a bizarre conversation that compared taking the Covid-19 vaccine to Botox injections. Lemon suggested that people are fine not knowing what’s in Botox injections, so they should be unconcerned with what’s in the vaccine and ‘trust’ the science. He also implied that all of the ‘vaccine hesitant’ are Trump supporters, and appeared to blame the former president for people currently refusing the vaccine.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Finds Possible Solution to Biden’s COVID-19 Therapy ‘Takeover’

After the Biden Administration took over distribution of COVID-19 therapy from states, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis expressed his displeasure amid a surge in demand among southern states.

“Just last week on September 9th, President Joe Biden said that his administration would be increasing shipments of monoclonal antibodies in September by 50%, and yet on September 13th, HHS announced that it was seizing control of the monoclonal antibody supply and that it would control distribution. Then on September 14th, the announcement was more than 50% of the monoclonal antibodies that had been used in Florida were going to be reduced,” he said.

DeSantis said the “dramatic reduction” is “doubly problematic” because what Shane Strum and folks in Tampa General and these other hospital systems that have been doing this, they’re not getting it from the state.”

Florida Landlord Says He’ll Kick Out Tenants Who Don’t Show Vaccine Passport

While leaving her South Florida condo last month, Jasmine Irby came across a notice pinned to her door from her management company. It read that, “As of August 15th, all new tenants must show proof of vaccination before moving in…Existing tenants must show proof of vaccination before leases are renewed.”

Apparently, Santiago A. Alvarez’s eight apartment buildings in Broward and Miami-Dade counties won’t let you live there unless you can show a vaccine passport. Unvaccinated tenants will also have to find another place to live at the end of their lease — assuming that the requirement to show a vaccine passport isn’t found to be illegal.

Group Protests Masks in Downtown Cedar Rapids After Schools Put Mandates in Place

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) —More school districts are starting to issue mask mandates after a federal judge blocked Iowa’s law forbidding mask requirements earlier this week. The mandates led a group of around 40 to protest Thursday in downtown Cedar Rapids.

“We will never tell anyone to not wear a mask, we’re asking for the same respect back. And let us decide what is right for our children,” Matt Rollinger told us, a Linn-Mar parent. We talked just hours before The Linn-Mar school board met to discuss putting a mask mandate in place.

“I’m hopeful that they don’t. I know there’s been a lot of parents that have reached out to the board, to administration, voicing their concerns,” Rollinger said.

Hillary Clinton-Linked Lawyer Indicted in Russiagate Probe

Update (1645ET): A grand jury has indicted Michael Sussmann, the lawyer accused of making false statements during the 2016 presidential campaign to slander then-candidate Donald Trump in the final months of the election.

Sussmann, the indictment charges, “lied about the capacity in which he was providing … allegations to the FBI” of potential cyber links between a Russian bank and a company owned by former president Donald Trump…

Durham is pursuing a prosecutorial theory that Sussmann was secretly representing Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, which was a client of Sussmann’s firm, these people said. —Washington Post

Notably, this is far from over as Special Counsel Durham’s office pointed out in the statement that the investigation is “ongoing.”

Kapaun Mt. Carmel Parents Protest Masks Outside of School

WICHITA, Kansas (KSNW) — Dozens of Kapaun Mt. Carmel parents protested masks outside the school on Thursday morning. It follows a protest by parents and students at Bishop Carroll.

One parent KSN News spoke with said teachers at the school have done a tremendous job throughout the pandemic but enforcing masks now should not be the administration’s decision.

“We just want our right as a parent. This is where they are to be educated, and then, their health is up to us. That’s all we want. We are not judging anyone else that wants to take a vaccine, or we are not judging anybody that wants to wear a mask. All we want to do is for our own children to make that choice,” said Terra Reusser, parent.

Defence Points Finger at Victim’s Cousin for Fatally Stabbing 3-Year-Old Winnipeg Boy

WINNIPEG — Lawyers for a Winnipeg man on trial for murdering three-year-old Hunter Smith-Straight two years ago pointed the finger at the child’s cousin as the person responsible for his death.

Daniel Jensen, who was dating Hunter’s mom at the time, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the boy’s death in November 2019. Jensen’s trial is being heard by a jury in the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench.

Austin Bruyere, Hunter’s cousin, took the stand Thursday as a witness in the case. He told jurors he was home on Pritchard Avenue with Hunter when his younger cousin was found stabbed in his bed at around 2:30 a.m. on Oct. 30, 2019.

“I was in shock,” Bruyere told jurors at Jensen’s trial. “He was like a little brother to me.”

The Crown alleges Jensen got mad at Hunter’s mom after a night of arguing and physical altercations between the two of them while out with friends and family on Oct. 29, 2019.

It is the prosecution’s position Jensen left a bar, walked to the home on Pritchard and repeatedly stabbed Hunter in his sleep.

Bruce Bonney, Jensen’s lawyer, suggested to Bruyere during cross-examination he is the one responsible for Hunter’s death.

“You went into the room, took a knife in there and stabbed Hunter,” Bonney said to Bruyere.

“I didn’t do it,” Bruyere testified.

Bonney argued Bruyere was mad the boy wouldn’t listen when Bruyere asked Hunter to go to bed.

“I’m suggesting you were blacked out and you were angry and you did something to Hunter,” Bonney said in court.

“That’s just crazy,” Bruyere told the jury.

Bruyere lived in the second-floor suite of the home along with Hunter, Hunter’s mom Clarice Smith, and Jensen. Other relatives lived in the main floor suite.

Bruyere testified he didn’t see Jensen in the house that morning or hear anything because he was in his room sleeping after waking up hours earlier and damaging the upper suite. Bruyere admitted to a jury he had blacked out from day drinking and got angry upon waking up around 10 p.m. on Oct. 29.

“I remember waking up and it was nighttime already,” Bruyere testified. “Nobody was around so I started freaking out.”

“I started throwing plates around and cups and bowls and then I punched a hole in my door.”

He told jurors he cut up his hands in the process. The injuries that were documented in photos taken by the Winnipeg Police Service when Bruyere was interviewed as a witness in Hunter’s death.

“They were bleeding pretty bad,” he told the jury. “They were dripping everywhere. I was wiping my hands on my pants.”

The jury heard he had blood on his clothing and agreed to provide a sample of his blood to detectives.

“I knew that they were not going to find Hunter’s blood on my pants,” Bruyere testified. “It was mine.”…

3,000 Health Workers Suspended Without Pay in France for Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine

With the September 15 deadline for staff at hospitals, retirement, care homes, and those in the fire service passing to get vaccinated, 3,000 health workers across France have been suspended from their jobs without pay.

Workers were informed of the deadline in July by President Emmanuel Macron, and health minister Olivier Véran said that staff were notified in writing before the deadline approached to get at least one off the doses, according to The Guardian.

While “several dozen” workers had resigned instead of getting vaccinated, Véran noted that “continued healthcare is assured,” with an estimated 2.7 million health workers remaining on the job in France.

English Opera Fires White Musicians to Increase Diversity

The English Touring Opera (ETO) has fired half of its musicians in order to increase the diversity in its ensemble, resulting in the dismissal of 14 White people between 40 and 66 years of age. They were all informed that they will not be offered any new contracts for the new season beginning in spring 2022.

“English Touring Opera is committed to increasing all kinds of diversity in its team, and while there have been appreciable, steady advances on stage in this area, we have prioritized increased diversity in the orchestra. This is in line with the firm guidance of the Arts Council, the principal funder of ETO’s touring work, and of most of the trust funds that support ETO,” Daily Mail quotes from the letter of Director James Conway to the musicians concerned.

The musicians are officially freelancers who can be fired season-to-season, but many have played for the ETO for 20 years.

Europe Must Gather ‘Political Will’ To Build EU Army, Says Ursula Von Der Leyen

Europe’s leadership is seeking to rapidly move forward on a controversial plan to build an EU army, with many in the past derided as conspiracy theorists for claiming that such an army could ever come into existence.

In her speech on the state of the EU in the European Parliament on Wednesday, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said that the EU should strengthen its troops in order to better intervene against global threats in the world. According to her, it would also be a possibility to build a joint EU army.

“In the last weeks, there have been many discussions on expeditionary forces. On what type and how many we need: battlegroups or EU entry forces,” Von der Leyen said. “This is no doubt part of the debate — and I believe it will be part of the solution.”

France Accuses “Backstabbing” Biden of Being ‘Worse Than Trump’ as UK-Aussie Defense Pact Sinks Sub Deal

As it turns out, while President Biden was celebrating yesterday’s “historic” security pact between the US, UK and Australia to establish a “partnership” that will help furnish Canberra with US nuclear submarine technology, one American ally was sulking in defeat.

Back in 2016, Australia had signed $40 billion contract with France’s Naval Group to build a new submarine fleet to replace the Aussie’s aging fleet of Collins subs. But apparently, the new deal with the US and UK makes this deal unnecessary (since Australia will now be getting its subs from the US, not France), essentially stealing a major $40 billion deal out of the mouth of the French defense industry.

France: It Was Nothing Personal, Says Abdesalam About the 2015 Terrorist Attack in Paris

The devastating attacks in Paris on Nov. 13, 2015, were nothing personal as they only responded to the French bombing of the Islamic State (IS) in Syria, said terrorist Salah Abdeslam at Wednesday’s trial. He is considered the only direct accomplice in the attacks who is still alive. A total of 130 people died in the Paris attacks, and hundreds more were injured.

The trial began last Tuesday, with the BFM TV providing the transcript of what was said in the courtroom.

The trial, which the French Minister of Justice Éric Dupond-Moretti called a judicial marathon, is to last until the end of May 2022.

Twenty people are accused, six of whom are on the run. Most of them face a sentence of life imprisonment. The suicide bombers died in the attacks.

On Wednesday, the judge gave the 14 defendants present the opportunity to express their views on the attacks at the time. Most of the accused said they regretted their role in the attacks, said they did not participate in terrorism purposely, and apologized to the victims and survivors.

By contrast, Salah Abdeslam, who spoke last, disregarded the judge’s request for brevity and embarked on a fiery defense of the attack, which lasted about five minutes. He justified the terrorists’ action with the French activity in Syria.

Hungarian President Urges Joint Migration, Climate and Debt Action

Hungarian President Janos Áder called for joint EU action on migration, climate crisis and public debt management at the Arraiolos Group meeting in Rome on Wednesday.

The Arraiolos Group is an informal meeting of the presidents of parliamentary and semi-presidential member states of the European Union, which gets its name from the Portuguese town of Arraiolos where the first meeting was held in 2003.

At the press conference following the 16th meeting of the panel, the Hungarian head of state said there is “room, place and reason for establishing international co-operation on migration”.

“The union must step up its action against human traffickers and terrorists, as must the resources needed to rebuild humanitarian areas be boosted”.

Italy to Mandate Vaccine Passports for State Employees, Then Eventually to Private Sector Workers

Following this week’s COVID-19 vaccine passport implementation for teachers in Italy, the nation will soon see the passports extended to all state workers, and eventually private sector workers, despite opposition from conservative leaders.

Premier Mario Draghi aims to expand the scheme to 1.2 million employees of local governments and ministries.

Switzerland’s Vaccine Passport Enforcement Includes Churches

Churches in Switzerland are now required to demand vaccine passports from congregants for events with more than 50 people. Critics have called the requirement a “great injustice.”

On September 13, the Swiss government extended its vaccine passport mandate to indoor events, including churches. In an effort to “prevent hospitals from being overburdened,” Churches will have to ask for vaccine passports for events with more than 50 people. The alternative is to keep events at less than 50, where the attendees are required to wear masks and observe social distancing.

The measures have been supported by the Evangelical Reformed Church of Switzerland and the Swiss Conference of Bishops (SCB).

The EU Could Cut Funding to Hungary, But the Country Has Some Options

If the European Union makes it difficult for Hungary to access EU funding, such as money from the €750 billion Recovery Fund, one method for raising badly needed funds will be on the international bond market, where Hungary can obtain favorable terms.

The situation is not ideal. With the EU threatening to punish Hungary via a rule-of-law sanctions mechanism, the liberal-left that dominate Brussels will be taking an unprecedented step to shape the political system of sovereign nations by wielding a powerful financial weapon.

India’s Ivermectin Blackout

Ivermectin Wins in India

News of India’s defeat of the Delta variant should be common knowledge. It is just about as obvious as the nose on one’s face. It is so clear when one looks at the graphs that no one can deny it.

Yet, for some reason, we are not allowed to talk about it. Thus, for example, Wikipedia cannot mention the peer-reviewed meta-analyses by Dr. Tess Lawrie or Dr. Pierre Kory published in the American Journal of Therapeutics.

thedesertreview.com/opinion/columnists/wikipedia-and-a-pint-of-gin/article_22ffa0d8-dde9-11eb-be75-d7b0b1f2ff67.html

Wikipedia is not allowed to publish the recent meta-analysis on Ivermectin authored by Dr. Andrew Hill. Furthermore, it is not allowed to say anything concerning www.ivmmeta.com showing the 61 studies comprising 23,000 patients which reveal up to a 96% reduction in death [prophylaxis] with Ivermectin.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk%3AIvermectin

One can see the bias in Wikipedia by going on the “talk” pages for each subject and reading about the fierce attempts of editors to add these facts and the stone wall refusals by the “senior” editors who have an agenda. And that agenda is not loyalty to your health.

The easy way to read the “talk” page on any Wikipedia subject is to click the top left “talk” button. Anyone can then review the editors’ discussions.

There is a blackout on any conversation about how Ivermectin beat COVID-19 in India. When I discussed the dire straits that India found itself in early this year with 414,000 cases per day, and over 4,000 deaths per day, and how that evaporated within five weeks of the addition of Ivermectin, I am often asked, “But why is there no mention of that in the news?”

Ivermectin vs. COVID in a Poor, High-Density State

Uttar Pradesh, India — 33 districts in that state have been declared “Covid-free.”

Well, OK, not that entirely the entire state is Covid free, but close enough.

241 million people, 199 active cases. The positive test rate is currently 0.01%. In other words, statistically zero.

Why?

It’s not vaccination; statistically-speaking none of their people have been vaccinated while, according to JAMA’s study approximately 62% of the population of the US showed vaccine-generated antibodies as of May.

I bet you can figure out how they did it and it will only require one word too.

If you’re having trouble, well, read here because it’s fully explained and that one word is not vaccines.

Austrian Minister: Turkey Uses Migrants to Pressure EU

NICOSIA — Austria’s minister for the European Union on Thursday accused Turkey of using migrant flows as a means to pressure the 27-member bloc for its own purposes and warned that the EU won’t be “blackmailed” by any country.

Karoline Edtstadler said countries on the EU’s external borders like Cyprus won’t be left alone to fend for themselves amid an influx of new migrants.

“Turkey, which uses migration and migrants as a tool to pressure the European Union, we will not accept that,” Edtstadler said after talks with Cypriot Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides. “We as a European Union won’t be blackmailed — not by Turkey, not by Belarus, not by any other country in the world.”

Denmark Pays UK to Take in Afghan Interpreters

Until June this year, Denmark has paid Great Britain to receive 23 Afghan interpreters who have helped Danish forces in Afghanistan, the Berlingske reported. The Danish Ministry of Defense confirmed the arrangment with Britain.

These are 12 interpreters who had first been refused an entry visa in Denmark and 11 interpreters who wanted to go to the UK, the newspaper wrote.

As of June, only five Afghan interpreters had been granted asylum in Denmark out of 139 applications. Denmark’s government’s attempt to direct migrants away from the country to another European nation is unsurprising in light of the left-leaning government’s hardline stance on migration. The country has implemented a number of policies to reduce the country’s migrant population, including a goal of “zero asylum seekers”.

Nevertheless, some have expressed surprise about Denmark’s policy of paying the UK to take its interpreters.

European Parliament is a ‘Loose Cannon’, Says Justice Minister Varga

Although leaders of EU member states are changing their stance on migration, the European Commission has not budged, Hungarian Justice Minister Judit Varga said.

There are positive statements and steps, fences are being built in several places, and placing migration detention centers outside Europe have been on the agenda. She said that reality has knocked on a lot of countries’ doors.

“However, the mainstream position of the European Commission (EC) has not changed — the board continues to dictate an absolutely liberal trend, and the risk of quota allocation did not disappear, either,” Varga said.

UK: Record Number of Migrants Crossing English Channel

Nearly a thousand migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East have attempted to cross the English Channel on small boats in just one day to illegally get into the United Kingdom. The record-breaking surge in illegal crossings is being facilitated by warm weather and calm seas.

The British government is struggling to stop the crossings — partly because of its need for cooperation from France. British authorities have repeatedly accused their French counterparts of not doing enough to stop small boats from leaving French territorial waters.

Although the UK has pledged to pay France tens of millions of pounds to stop migrants crossing the Channel, French naval vessels are accused of escorting small boats into British waters.

EU Parliament Issues Yet Another Ultimatum on LGBT Rights to Hungary and Poland

On Tuesday, the European Parliament has published its resolution regarding LGBTQ rights in the European Union following a stormy debate during a plenary session in Strasbourg. To observers of the Hungarian Parliament’s recent conduct, it will come as no surprise that Hungary and Poland were singled out yet again as pariah states that are allegedly severely restricting the rights of sexual minorities and denying them a family life.

The resolution’s main goal was to elevate LGBTQ rights with a special focus on family life to the same level that heterosexual marriages and families enjoy, a topic that seems increasingly moving towards the top of the EP’s agenda despite a myriad of other burning problems facing the union in times of pandemic and economic downturn.

  1. Hmmmm…. Very interesting.
    And makes perfect sense. Of course there had to be SOME reason behind that mass State and Population altering rather rash decision.
    And I certainly couldn’t for the life of me figure it out.

    Thanks.

  2. For all those American workers who are willing to lose their jobs because they don’t want to get the Shot, there will be plenty of unvetted, illiterate, uncivilized, Christian-hating Afghans to replace them.

    The only problem is that Walmart et al are going to have to remove knives, machetes and other sharp tools from their shelves.

    “The United States Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with multinational corporations like Amazon and Walmart, is launching an effort to quickly funnel newly arrived Afghans to the U.S. into American jobs.

    This week, the Chamber announced an initiative called the “Coalition for Afghan Refugee Employment in the U.S.” that will partner with Amazon, United Parcel Service (UPS), and Walmart to quickly get Afghans into American jobs after they arrive as part of President Joe Biden’s massive resettlement operation.”

    • Why not call centers or taxi drivers instead? I believe not being able to speak English is the main job requirement, which of course none of those “interpreters” are able to do.
