Drone Video at Kyle Rittenhouse Murder Trial Shows First Shooting

The video, zoomed in and slowed down by a forensic imaging specialist, was played as the prosecution’s case appeared to be winding down after a week of testimony in which some of its own witnesses often bolstered Rittenhouse’s claim of self-defense.

KENOSHA, Wis. — The jury at Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial Tuesday watched drone video that showed Rittenhouse wheeling around and shooting Joseph Rosenbaum at close range during a night of turbulent protests on the streets of Kenosha.

The footage showed Rosenbaum following Rittenhouse before Rittenhouse suddenly spins around and fires his rifle at him. Rosenbaum falls, and Rittenhouse runs around a car.

Dr. Doug Kelley, a forensic pathologist with the Milwaukee County medical examiner’s office, said Rosenbaum was shot by someone who was within 4 feet of him.

Kelley testified Rosenbaum was shot four times: He was first wounded in the groin, hand and thigh as he faced Rittenhouse, and then was shot in the back — which prosecutor James Kraus called the “kill shot.”

Kelley also said Rosenbaun’s hand was “in close proximity or in contact with the end of that rifle.”…

‘Everybody Needs to Fight.’ Anti-Vaccine Mandate Advocates Protest at PA. State Capitol

HARRISBURG — Days after announcing a potential bid for Pennsylvania governor, state Sen. Doug Mastriano held his first major event — an anti-vaccine rally for so-called medical freedom.

The “Medical Freedom Rally” rally on the state Capitol steps drew a handful of Republicans in the state House and Senate, a couple dozen reporters and about 100 people opposing medical mandates.

Mastriano, R-Franklin, acted as an emcee at times, introducing fellow lawmakers and speakers. At other times, he echoed the words of former President Donald Trump, complaining about the media, making unproven claims about the pandemic and encouraging his audience to “fight” against “tyranny.”

Illinois Democratic Governor Signs Law Allowing Workers Who Refuse Vaccine to Face Potential Repercussions

Illinois’ Democratic governor on Monday updated a preexisting state law from the 1970s to allow penalties for workers who don’t abide by COVID-19-related mandates on vaccines, masks and testing.

“Masks, vaccines, and testing requirements are life-saving measures that keep our workplaces and communities safe,” Gov. J.B. Pritzker said in a statement Monday. “Keeping workplaces safe is a high priority, and I applaud the General Assembly for ensuring that the Health Care Right of Conscience Act is no longer wrongly used against institutions who are putting safety and science first.”

Enacted in 1978, the Health Care Right of Conscience Act was originally intended to allow medical professionals to refuse to receive or participate in health care services contrary to their personal beliefs, including religious or moral objections to specific services, such as abortion.

Security Guard Stabs, Injures Customer While Arguing Over Mask in Santa Monica Vons Supermarket

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (KABC) — A supermarket security guard stabbed and injured a man Sunday night in Santa Monica during an altercation over a customer’s refusal to wear a mask inside the store, a witness said.

The incident was reported shortly after noon. 22.30 at a Vons in the 700 block on Broadway. The security guard told the police envoy that “he got into a fight with a customer and stabbed him in self-defense,” Santa Monica’s police department said in a statement.

“It was a fight, and then the security guard got really upset and pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed the man, and a lot of blood sprayed everywhere,” said witness Andre Berryman. “A lot of people came to break it up, pull them apart. But then that guy bled profusely.”

Officers arrived to find the customer in front of the store suffering from multiple stab wounds, the press release said. The injured man was taken to a hospital where his condition is stable.

At the medical center, he refused to identify himself or give any statement about the incident, authorities said.

Belarus is Exploiting Poland’s Divisions Over Migration Crisis

Alexander Lukashenko has been using migrants from Third-World countries as a weapon in his hybrid warfare against not only Poland but also Latvia and especially Lithuania. The difference between Poland and the Baltic States is that the opposition in the Baltic States stood by their governments’ side and defended the integrity of their countries’ borders. All of the parties had unanimously voted to erect a barrier on the border and supported decisive actions by the Border Guard and military.

A widespread consensus is present among all parliamentary forces in the Baltic State when it comes to the migration crisis, including the socialists, greens, liberals, conservatives, and nationalists.

It is also symbolic that the person who is the face of supporting strong border defense against illegal migrants is the Latvian minister of the interior, a 49-year-old lesbian and LGBT activist Maria Golubieva from the social-liberal “For Latvia’s Development” party. In these matters, she remains more decisive and unwavering than many men.

He called it unprecedented that Europe was under migratory pressure from three directions: south, southeast and east. According to him, as a result, Latvians, Lithuanians and Poles are now physically facing what Hungary has been dealing with since 2015.

Lithuania Border, Camps in State of Emergency Over Migrants From Belarus

KAPCIAMIESTIS, Lithuania (Reuters) — Lithuania’s parliament on Tuesday declared a state of emergency at the country’s border with Belarus and at camps hosting migrants who arrived from there, a tally of votes showed.

The state of emergency, which begins at midnight local time (2200 GMT) in the night of Tuesday to Wednesday and is to last a month, allows border guards to use “mental coercion” and “proportional physical violence” to prevent migrants from entering Lithuania.

EU member states accuse Belarus of encouraging illegal migrants from the Middle East, Afghanistan and Africa to cross the border into the EU in revenge for sanctions already slapped on Minsk over human rights abuses.

Poland Says Border Migrants Using Children as Propaganda: ‘Take the Kids, Look Dirty and Tired’

The Polish government has claimed that Middle Eastern migrants on its border, used as pawns by the Lukashenko regime in Belarus, are using children as propaganda in their efforts to penetrate the eastern borders of NATO and the European Union.

“Propaganda plays a huge role in Belarus’ actions against Poland, which is to force [Poland] to submit to Belarus’s intentions and to put pressure on the government to agree to the migration route. Children and women are mainly used in these psychological activities against Poles,” wrote Stanislaw Zaryn, official spokesman for the Minister-Coordinator of Special Services at the National Security Department of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki, on social media.

UK Border Force Refuses to Turn Migrant Boats Back to France

Britain’s Border Force is refusing to turn migrant boats back to France in direct opposition to the policy laid out by Home Secretary Priti Patel, as another twenty illegal migrants were brought ashore on Tuesday morning.

In stark contrast to the migrant situation in Poland, where border authorities are currently preventing thousands of Middle Eastern migrants from breaking into their country from Belarus, the UK’s Border Force is continuing to ferry illegals onto British soil.

  1. Poland accused Russia of supporting the wave of migrants pushed into the country from Belarus, which Poland referred to as an “attack”.

    Hey poland…. whose ships are in the Mediterranean Saracen SEA collecting muslims and pampering them in europe.

    I just want one semi-human european think sensibly. Just one. No.

    Except Orban. Wilders. Golding. a few more. Most of them not in ruling positions.

    Pakistanis marry 4 each have 43 kids . Then they blame India that they are starving. Because India does not commit suicide and let Pakis have all the lands and resources. The same problem with Palestinians against Jews.

    poland why don’t you blame Merkel. The head of the snake.

    Have you not heard EU have made an unholy agreement with the arab/muslim masters to promote islam its culture, sharia arabic language in eu.

    Not only that but to send to hell everything Judeo-Christian.

    Now it is holiday season not Christmas.

    Our official municipal calendar is filled with : Eid aladha. “That’s not holiday season.” SWho will dare change it. Ramadan starts … And MP Hol decalred in Parliament .. . he ‘s fasting ramadan. Mind you not Lent.

    Abject Cowards

    I am sure he has not heard and does not know what Lent it. Not why some celebrate Mardi Gras.

    Prophet’s birthday. Prophet’s nikah day. Prophet’s meeting allah night.

    EU ‘s laws, borders, attitudes, positions, words, attitudes, human rights laws, George Soros . . . everything is designed to facilitate invasion of europe by OUR NEW MASTERS.

    Or it is easy to blame Russia, No consequences. But lame Germany, Italy, Britain, Sweden, France is difficult. BASICALLY EU force Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Latvia,…… to create problems with Russia to give NATO a pretext to strangle Russia. Or am I mistaken?

    Do you think Greece is happy with invading floods of muslims. But EU exerts deadly force on Greece to accept invaders. so is Malta.

    Russian ships are not in the Med Sea waiting to grace them with the arrival of invaders. The ships are German’s Italians.

    Infidels of europe have no brains: The Beach near the city of Ladispoli is called Lido de Ostia. DO YOU KNOW WHY?

    On those beaches thousands of corpses piled when periodically in the past those beaches were raided attacked, men killed and girls led away … when the Med Sea (was / as is now ) a muslim dominion.

    This is as true as the medieval well poisoning of London waters by Jews. Until they discovered that the ells were poisoned by loos.

    99% of human dealings are misunderstanding and scandalous. That’s why Shakespeare’s plays are popular in the whole world. Human nature the same.

    Just think about Othello. He was in the dark while Honest Iago was arranging everything. So much blood was shed until Othello became aware of the whole truth.

    What lesson did europe learn from ww1 and wwii and the chain of previous never ending wars? NOTHING.

    “Lest we forget” monuments are everywhere.

    Not only have we forgotten, but we are exactly going the same paths that led us to those happy wars.

    I’ll be home for Christmas You can count on me Please have snow and mistletoe And presents under the tree…

    WW2 lasted for 6 years. The new ONE will incinerate europe.

    EU will not be satisfied by anything less

    • Belarus is the choking bird in the european coalmine and poland is just attacking it… maybe they are thinking that when the bird is dead the migrant smugglers problem is solved. Blind and fool at the same time.

    • Europe needs a cleansing anyway, with the 3rd world invading by such great numbers with the one world types actively encouraging and financially supporting it, war is inevitable, just prepare for it and do what is necessary when the time comes.

  2. So Putin is using refugees as another method for undermining the west .thankfully the Poles arn’t as feeble as Angela Merkie afew years ago .
    The refugees seem to be mainly Syrian so the responsibility would largely be the Russian air force .
    The Poles answer to Putin should be “Youbroke you fix it”

  3. using poland to go against belarus, because of noneuropean migrants, is absurd. it is eurocracy / international oligarchy who is funding all the migrant smugglers… why poland is not asking how migrants arrived in belarus ?

  4. Social climate change. Everyone to share in the goodies. It’s looking like with enough denial reigns supreme. Yes we can! Female mules and Lebanese tools. Damn! It’s looking like I will have to experience another Franco style stoppage and of course the golden of golden opportunities for Muslims. The west’s women will help them with their “feelings”. Giving it all away – to China.

    • Wrong! Soon you will see extra judicial eliminations that will paralyze govts to the point the military will step in, then the real fun and reindeer games will begin, and nobody is going to listen to some woman caterwauling about a 3rd worlder at that point.
