White House Warns of ‘Extraordinarily Elevated’ March Inflation Rate

White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted Monday that fresh monthly inflation data will be “extraordinarily elevated” when it’s released Tuesday — after inflation hit a 40-year high of 7.9 percent last month.

“We expect March CPI headline inflation to be extraordinarily elevated due to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s price hike, and we expect a large difference between core and headline inflation reflecting the global disruptions in energy and food markets,” Psaki said at her regular press briefing.

NPR reporter Asma Khalid pressed Psaki on the White House’s attempt to blame Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, saying she had just returned from a reporting trip to Michigan, where many people told her “they feel that inflation has predated this war.”

Biden Begins Crackdown on ‘Ghost Guns’ Following Nomination of New ATF Director

The Biden administration announced on Monday that it would be introducing new firearms measures following the nomination of Steve Dettelbach as director of the Bureau of Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).

Dettelbach is the former US attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, and was nominated after Biden withdrew his nomination for David Chipman due to resistance from centrist Democrats and Republicans in Senate. Chipman had mocked gun-owning Americans as “doomsday preppers” and compared them to Netflix’s Tiger King star Joe Exotic.

D11 Dissolves Department of Equity and Inclusion

Colorado Springs School District 11 has effectively dissolved its groundbreaking Department of Equity and Inclusion and, with it, the director of equity and inclusion position.

By a “thumbs-up” at the April 6 board meeting, D11’s board voted 4-2 not to fund the equity department in the 2022-23 preliminary school year budget. The board’s conservative majority led the decision; directors Julie Ott and Darleen Daniels opposed the move.

This decision shutters the department that implemented D11’s equity policy and practices, which were put in place in 2020 under previous Superintendent Dr. Michael Thomas, to “meet the unique needs of all students.”

Dallas Love Field Airport is Using Robots to Scan for Unmasked Travelers

Seven-foot tall robots at the Dallas Love Field Airport are scanning for unmasked travelers and cars that have been parked for too long. The technology raises privacy concerns among privacy advocates.

The robots, dubbed SCOT (security control observation towers), have been placed at two locations; one near security checkpoints and the other near baggage claim. The aim is to determine if robotic systems can assist travelers to get around the airport and warn those who are breaking the rules.

Family of Boyfriend Stabbed to Death by OnlyFans Star Courtney Clenney Do NOT Believe She Was Acting in Self-Defense and Demand That She be Charged With His Murder

The family of the Miami man stabbed to death by his OnlyFans star girlfriend say they do not believe her claim that she was acting in self-defense when she stabbed him in the shoulder, and are demanding that she be charged with his murder.

Christian Obumseli, 27, was stabbed to death by his girlfriend Courtney Clenney, 25, on Sunday April 3rd. She called 911 after stabbing him in the shoulder at the One Paraiso Building — a luxury skyscraper in Edgewater, Miami.

Clenney, who also goes by Courtney Tailor, told police she was acting in self-defense and that she though Obumseli was going to hurt her.

She was taken into custody under Florida’s Baker Act, which protects people at risk of suicide or mental health crisis, but is now free again and over the weekend, she was seen attempting to have a drink in a bar with her father before being confronted by a stranger.

Obumseli’s family from Austin, Texas, is demanding answers. They do not believe she was acting in self-defense, and are at a loss over why she has not been arrested…

Hundreds Protest COVID Vaccine Mandates at Downtown LA Rally

Over 1,000 people gathered in downtown Los Angeles Sunday to protest COVID vaccine mandates, saying that rules requiring workers at many government agencies and private companies to get vaccinated are unconstitutional and have cost thousands of people their jobs.

“We’re here to re-claim our territory,” master of ceremonies Kevin Jenkins told the crowd at Grand Park after singer Jimmy Levy performed the national anthem. “We’re going to re-generate the soil. This is our defining moment.”

The crowd booed when Jenkins mentioned Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical adviser to the president, who has come to be viewed by many as the face of the official government response to the pandemic.

Sunday’s rally was be hosted by the organization Defeat the Mandates, which has sponsored anti-vaccine and anti-mandate events across the country.

‘I Did That!’: Man Arrested After Placing Biden Decals on Gas Pump, As Fuel Anger Grows

A fed-up Pennsylvania man got into an ugly gas station confrontation with local cops after he was allegedly caught slapping anti-Joe Biden stickers on the pumps in protest of rising fuel prices.

“This guy stuck stickers on a gas pump, got yelled at by a clerk for doing so and went crazy afterwards,” wrote Aaron Philips, who recorded the March 31 incident and shared it on Facebook.

Thomas Richard Glazewski, 54, of Manor Township, was charged on April 4 with a series of offenses after placing decals of President Biden on pumps at a Turkey Hill gas station, Lancaster Online reports.

His effort is part of a growing nationwide trend as gas prices continue to soar. The stickers show the president pointing at the prices with the words “I did that!” in big, bold print.

No Jail for NYC Prankster Who Told Diners He Had a Bomb and Would Kill Them for Allah

When Malik Sanchez was sentenced on Wednesday for claiming he had a bomb and telling two women outside a New York City restaurant that he was going to kill them, he apologized to the women and said that his actions were those of an “immature and reckless child.” Manhattan federal court Judge Colleen McMahon stopped him right there and corrected him, saying his action was “that of a sicko.” Nevertheless, she gave him no jail time at all while praising his post-arrest behavior and calling him a “pretrial success story.” Scaring people half to death is no big deal in New York City; in the decaying Leftist paradise of Bill de Blasio and Eric Adams, it takes a great deal to be sent to prison.

Sanchez faced up to five years in prison, but McMahon sentenced him to time served: he spent 23 days in jail after he was arrested and nine months confined to home.

Twitter is Questioned Over Hunter Biden Laptop Story Censorship

In October 2020, just before the election, the New York Post published a story about Hunter Biden’s potentially corrupt dealings when his father, Joe Biden, was vice president. The story was based on damning emails obtained from a laptop Hunter left at a repair shop in Delaware.

Twitter censored the story over the “origins of the material” and suspended the New York Post’s account for two weeks. The online platforms also prevented users from sharing the story.

A few weeks ago, The New York Times confirmed the authenticity of what the New York Post called the “laptop from hell.”

Now, Republican members of the House Election Integrity Caucus, led by Rep. Claudia Tenney, in a letter addressed to Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, are asking for answers about the censorship of the story.

The incumbent president, Emmanuel Macron among La République En Marche! (LREM), who won in 2017 and whose first term lasts until 13 May 2022, announced on 3 March 2022 that he was launching his re-election bid to a second five-year term for which he is eligible under the Constitution of France.

The Slovak government’s decision to donate its own Russian-made Soviet-era, surface-to-air missile system (SAM) to its eastern neighbor has generated praise and positive headlines internationally, despite the fact that there is very little domestic public support for dragging the small country into the war between the two giants in their neighborhood.

The Most Peaceful Country in the World? A Series of Shootings and Stabbings Shakes Iceland

Will Iceland lose its status as the most peaceful country in the world? Several shootings and stabbings have disturbed the usual tranquility of the island nation in recent months, with some incidents linked to criminal gangs with ties to “international networks.”

Iceland has topped the Global Peace Index since its inclusion in 2008, and the country’s 375,000 inhabitants have thus far avoided the rising crime problems seen in Scandinavian countries like Sweden and Denmark. Most crime in Iceland is in fact fictional, with the nation known for publishing crime thriller books both popular in the country and abroad.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) and brother of the deceased President Lech Kaczynski, addressed a commemoration march for the 12th anniversary of the Smolensk air disaster and claimed that in the coming days details would emerge of what actually happened 12 years ago.

“We know what happened in Smolensk and in the coming days we will be revealing that” said Kaczynski, who regretted that the pandemic had made it impossible to hold commemoration marches in 2020 and 2021 but said the three years had been important for getting to the bottom of the causes of the tragedy and that the memory was an important part of Poland’s national identity.

UK Censorship Bill Will Impact Small, Independent Media Outlets While Giving Large Media Outlets a Pass

The UK government is currently pushing a sweeping online censorship bill, the Online Safety Bill, which will force tech giants to censor content based on the vague, subjective term “harm.”

One of the government’s main arguments when attempting to defend these controversial censorship requirements has been that “news content will be completely exempt from any regulation under the Bill.” However, the rules that govern these exemptions are written in a way that favors large media outlets and makes it difficult for small, independent outlets to qualify.

India: Double Murder in Mograhat. Notorious Muslim Mafia Jane Alam Molla Sent to Police Custody for 14 Days

Two Hindu youths including a Civic Police murdered by Muslim Kingpin Jane Alam Molla in a very ISIS style out of a loan row. Molla arrested from Kolkata and Court allowed Police remand for 14 days.

Prasad Panda | HENB | Diamond Harbour | April 11, 2022:: A civic volunteer and his friend were killed by armed assailants at a crowded cattle market in Magurpukur area of Mograhat, South 24-Parganas, on Saturday morning.

Civic volunteer Barun Chakraborty, 35, attached to Mograhat police station, and his friend Maloy Makhal, 31, were dragged into the deserted office room of a construction firm’s office, where the criminals shot the two friends from close range before hacking them with sharp weapons, a police source said.

The brutality of the murder of two Hindu guys by a notorious Muslim businessman and his gangs created a huge retaliation with immediate effect which brought the police in intense intervention.

Multiple sources in the area said that the duo were killed as they were putting pressure on a local businessman turned Mafia Jane Alam Molla to return the money he had taken from them as investment after promising high returns.

“The businessman summoned the duo at 11.30am on Saturday morning with the lure of returning the money… His people took them inside his office, where they were killed,” a relative of Chakraborty alleged.

People in the market area heard gunshots from inside the office room of the construction firm. While some ran away, others went near the office to see what happened.

“We first saw Jaan-e-Alam, owner of the company, coming out of the room. At least four others were following him and suddenly one of them hurled a bomb, which created panic in the area,” said an eyewitness.

The gory scene of murder had an obvious similarity with ISIS execution, first the gun-shot from pointblank range, then slit of throats with sharp weapons.

The police, on being informed, went inside the office from where they recovered the bodies and took them to Diamond Harbour district hospital where doctors declared them brought dead.

The news of murders in the office of a crowded market created unrest. A mob ransacked some shops, torched a vehicle protesting the poor law-and-order in the area..

Video: Former Obama DHS Head Warns of “Major Influx” of 18,000 Illegal Immigrants Per Day

Former Obama Homeland Security head Jeh Johnson warned Sunday that unmanageable numbers of illegal immigrants will pour across the southern border if the Biden Administration lifts the Title 42 public health authority.

The measure, which Biden intends to scrap in May, has effectively served as border control, allowing federal immigration officials to swiftly return around two million illegal immigrants to their home countries over the past two years.

Without it, it is conservatively estimated that numbers of migrants reaching the border will increase three fold to 18,000 per day.

Former Reddit Chief Uses ‘Free-Speechers’ As a Pejorative Term

“At the end of the day,” former Reddit CEO Ellen K. Pao tweeted Tuesday, “the free-speechers really just want to be able to use racist slurs. CW: racism, immaturity, stupidity, and even more racism and extreme stupidity. They really don’t care about sharing new ideas or encouraging freedom other than the freedom to harass other people off the platform.” Pao included a screenshot of a message she apparently received, loaded with anti-Chinese slurs.

That’s all that people who say they want free speech are really about, you see, at least in the view of fashion-monitoring Leftists: insulting and hating people. But if Pao has such a dim view of “free-speechers,” what is she, exactly?

    Speaking of ‘Wit and Wisdom’,

    Snaphanen.dk writes today:

    And when will they send the police after those who write the truth? I hope that all ordinary journalists of conscience, of which I fortunately avoided becoming one back in 1972, when I entered their “high school”, are ashamed of themselves when they go to bed.

    The ’68ers thought they had a political fight ahead of them, because they were better off than anyone else in living memory.

    Now the struggle is real and they are completely gone and prostituted. They deserve nothing but contempt, but they have inherited the world, as Giuseppe Lampedusa writes in The Leopard; and that is why things are going the way they do.
    To oppose it is naive, but an honourable instinct. It can only be described, and that’s what I’ve been trying to do for twenty years. So far, criminals and idiots have won, see especially in Sweden and France, and a little later in Denmark.
    We can only hope that one day Europe will rise again after this lost generation. No one knows, but we know the names of the guilty ones.
    They should not rule out the possibility that they will be called to account, even if the inhabitants of the former democracies are all currently lypng in a coma. My own doctor does, having offered me the vaccine four times. So do all the hospital staff, after my tour of four hospitals in the last year. I wish them no harm, but let there be no doubt that I regard their offers as attempted murder.

    The Leopard says of them:
    “Everything has to change for everything to stay the same. All this should not be able to last, but it will last, forever; forever by human standards, of course: hundred years, two hundred years, and then it will be different, but worse. We were the leopards, the lions; it will be jackals, hyenas, that will replace us, and all in the herd, both leopards and jackals and all the sheep, will still think that they are the salt of the earth.”
