NOT AGAIN: Amazon Claims It Found Ropes in Their Warehouse ‘That Could Be Interpreted as Nooses’

Amazon clearly learned nothing from the global humiliation of Bubba Wallace last year and is now offering a reward over ropes found in one of their warehouses that “could be interpreted as nooses.”

The company is causing a fuss over a few ropes that might be meant to be nooses, one that police deemed was “not a noose,” and one that does supposedly look like a noose at their warehouse in Windsor, Connecticut at the end of April.

Amazon is apparently so stunned by ropes being in a warehouse that local authorities are investigating. Additionally, the facility’s developer and the internet giant are each offering $25,000 for anyone with information about the mystery ropes — bringing the total to $50k.

“Amazon remains deeply disturbed by the incident that occurred in Windsor a couple of weeks ago,” Amazon spokesperson Kelly Nantel told the local NBC affiliate.

“Hate, racism and discrimination have

McCarthy desperately wanted to silence Cheney. He failed

Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had a short-term problem: One member of his leadership team refused to accept the baseless lie that the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump. The third-ranking House Republican, Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, also refused to shut up about Trump’s lies, which also meant she was calling the majority of her caucus a bunch of liars, since so many of them continue to spout those lies, and most of them voted to reject certification of the election results. McCarthy decided she had to go.

In many ways, McCarthy simply caved to the pressure of both his caucus members and the GOP base. Multiple polls have shown that a substantial majority of Republican voters either believe the election was stolen from Trump or that Joe Biden isn’t the legitimate president. A Public Religion Research Institute poll in March found that while only 29% of Americans think “the … Read the rest

Three Women Arrested for Vandalizing Former Home of Chauvin Defense Witness With Animal Blood, Leaving Severed Pig Head on Doorstep

Three women have been arrested for vandalizing the former home of Barry Brodd, who testified as a witness for Derek Chauvin’s defense.

The unhinged Black Lives Matter extremists covered the home with animal blood and a severed pig’s head was left on the front porch on April 17.

The Santa Rosa Police Department arrested Rowan Dalbey, 20, Kristen Aumoithe, 34, and Amber Lucas, 25, on Tuesday on charges of conspiracy and two felony counts of vandalism, the department said in a statement.

“This investigation is still ongoing, and there are still additional leads and information that detectives are following up on. We believe there are additional suspects that were involved and are asking for our community’s help in identifying them. Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that would assist with the investigation is encouraged to contact SRPD through our online Tip Line,” the statement continued.

Brodd became … Read the rest

GOP push for raising taxes on the middle class through user fees is a golden opportunity for Biden

President Joe Biden is playing a better hand in negotiations with Senate Republicans on his $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan. How do we know? The fact that Republicans are even at the table. 

Biden’s plan and the provisions in it are enormously popular at a time when millions of American workers are still on the sidelines in the aftermath of the pandemic’s economic toll. Polling also continues to show that most voters want congressional Republicans to work with Biden rather than simply serve as a blockade to progress. Recent polling from Vox and Data for Progress found that 68% of Americans—including 43% of Republicans—want Republicans to find ways to work with Biden rather than obstruct his agenda. Americans also think more broadly that Republicans are the real impediment to bipartisanship, with fully 67% of respondents saying GOP leaders in Congress are doing too little to compromise with Biden in a recent ABC/News … Read the rest

“I Have No Comment on That” Joe Biden on Reports That Colonial Pipeline Paid a Ransom of $5 Million to Hackers (VIDEO)

Colonial Pipeline reportedly paid European hackers $5 million ransom last week after the criminal group hacked the company.

Joe Biden on Thursday was asked about the reported ransom paid to the hackers.

This is after the Biden Administration sat back and did nothing and said the cyberattack is a “private sector” problem even though it affected gas distribution in 1/3 of the country.

“Were you briefed on the fact that the company did pay the ransom?” a reporter asked.

It took a few seconds for Biden’s brain to catch up and he finally responded, “I have no comment on that.”

After paying the ransom, Colonial Pipeline Wednesday afternoon announced it restarted its operations at … Read the rest

Labor, environmental groups sound alarm over Biden allowing GOP delaying tactics on infrastructure

President Joe Biden is once again meeting with Republican senators Thursday to talk infrastructure. After Wednesday’s meeting, in which Republican leaders made it as obnoxiously clear as they could that they’re not interested in working with him, the motivations for continuing on in a spirit of bipartisanship aren’t terribly clear.

House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy was as Trumpist as he could be, his campaign blasting out a fundraising message right after the meeting: “Corrupt Joe Biden and he’s STILL planning  to push his radical Socialist agenda onto the American people,” the blast text said. McConnell made a jab about what’s “real” infrastructure, saying that “nearly all” of the meeting “was about infrastructure.” Then he stated flatly—again—he’s not negotiating. “We are not interested in reopening the 2017 tax bill,” McConnell said. “That’s a red line.”

Frank Luntz’s BFF Kevin McCarthy After Cheney Ousted: “I Don’t Think Anybody is Questioning the Legitimacy of the Election… It’s Over With” (VIDEO)

House Republicans met earlier Wednesday to vote to remove Liz Cheney from her leadership position.

Cheney was the third-ranking Republican in the House GOP Caucus.

Bitter Liz Cheney lashed out at Trump and his voter base which happens to be well over 80 million Americans.

“I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Cheney said after getting booted from her leadership position.

Cheney attacked President Trump for his continued belief the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him and she threw a barb at McCarthy for “not standing up for the rule of law and for allowing democracy to be undermined.”

McCarthy was quick to appease Cheney and entertain her assertion that the 2020 election was free and fair.

Hours after Liz Cheney was booted from GOP conference chair, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says this gem:

“I don’t … Read the rest

Physician who proudly rejected wearing masks ordered to stop practicing medicine during COVID-19

Amid the ongoing global pandemic, people who work in health care have gotten well-deserved thanks. Physicians, nurses, aides, janitorial staff, and others who work in hospital, clinic, and outpatient settings have put up with grueling schedules, a lack of personal protective equipment, and burnout from witnessing so much illness and death in rapidly changing environments. That said, there have been medical professionals who have tried to downplay and dismiss the severity of the novel coronavirus. 

As is the case with one physician in Oregon, Steven LaTulippe, he once bragged that neither he nor his staff would wear masks while serving patients at his family health clinic in Dallas, Oregon, as reported by The Independent. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Oregon Medical Board ruled that LaTulippe will not be allowed to practice medicine until Oregon’s public health emergency is over, as reported by BuzzFeed News. 

Back in December 2020, the Oregon Medical Board issued an … Read the rest

FLASHBACK: CDC Uses Faulty COVID Transmission Data to Push for Mail-in Voting in Attempt to Get Rid of Trump

On Tuesday the CDC announced they (lied) miscalculated the dangers of the coronavirus and now claim the virus is not nearly as contagious as was once reported.

The New York Times called out the CDC for “misclassifying” the COVID transmission outdoors.  The CDC said the transmission was 10% and now believe it is closer to 1% or non-existent.

The CDC lied about this figure for over a year.

Bombshell Report Reveals CDC Risk of Covid Transmission Outdoors Greatly Exaggerated

But it did help them assist in getting rid of Donald Trump as president.

The CDC helped Democrats steal the 2020 election by announcing back in March 2020 that they recommend mail-in voting.  This allowed several Democrat-run swing states to steal the election from Donald Trump with legislative tricks and phantom voter turnout.

Here is what the CDC said back in March 2020 to assist Democrat governors and state officials.

McCarthy's role in Cheney ouster isn't winning him support: He 'doesn't have the backbone to lead'

Kevin McCarthy has “leader” in his title, but the House minority leader is showing what a failure he is on that front. McCarthy has been flailing as Rep. Liz Cheney, currently the third-ranking House Republican, has outraged Trumpists with her insistence that the results of elections should be honored and insurrection is bad. McCarthy has joined the anti-Cheney camp, but clumsily, constantly playing catch-up rather than leading, and members of his own caucus are noticing.

McCarthy first went public with his opposition to Cheney in a probably fake “hot mic” moment on Fox News, then swiftly got behind Rep. Elise Stefanik’s leadership bid. Stefanik is less conservative but more loyal to Trump and more opportunistic than Cheney. McCarthy followed that up with a laughably weak letter in which he argued for purging Cheney from leadership while claiming Republicans as “a big tent party” where “unlike the left, we embrace free thought and debate.” (And, as a … Read the rest
