Intruder breaks through home’s back door in middle of night. But gun-toting resident is right there — and opens fire when intruder tries to grab gun.

Things got scary in a Green Bay, Wisconsin, neighborhood early Thursday morning as police were called around 4 a.m. about someone trying to kick down the front door of a residence on Mount Mary Drive, WFRV-TV reported.

Green Bay Police Interim Chief Jim Runge told the station the intruder was not able to gain entry to the residence in question through the front door.

And then as officers were arriving at the scene of the complaint, another call came in about a shooting at a home around the corner, WFRV noted.

What happened?

The station said the suspect broke into a duplex in the 1000 block of Laverne Drive through the back door — and was soon greeted by the resident.

And the resident didn’t show up empty-handed.

Like a growing number of people around the country, the resident had prepared for just such an encounter by exercising his Second Amendment rights and arming himself.

So the intruder found himself staring down the barrel of a handgun, WFRV said.

But the sight of the lethal weapon apparently didn’t deter the intruder. Authorities told the station the suspect aggressively approached the resident and tried to grab the gun out of his hand.

With that, the resident fired one round and hit the suspect in the leg, WFRV said.

Authorities arriving at the scene found the shot suspect, who was then taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the station said.

Police told WFRV the intruder could have been under the influence of drugs and that the suspect’s motivation was not clear.

The investigation is ongoing, the station said.

WLUK-TV added that the male suspect in police custody and that officials aren’t looking for any other suspects and don’t believe the public is in any danger.

‘White Boy Rick” Serve Three Decades in Prison After Being Groomed as an Informant at 14… Then the FBI Turned on Him…It’s Payback Time

0

According to a BOP populace report dated Jun 2021, the U.S. houses 153,996 federal inmates. Their crimes vary from crossing state lines after robbing a 7/11 to multiple counts of brutal homicide. Yet despite the varying natures of their crimes, the greatest majority of societies malfunctioning rejects share a common bond. They didn’t do it. All ‘ya gotta do is ask.

Via advanced technology, retrieved DNA samples from decades ago have allowed several inmates to be released after serving 20 to 30 years, their lives destroyed by false accusations and baseless assumptions. If they’re lucky the feds will hand them an apology note and a couple of thousand bucks for their trouble. “Go get ’em, tiger.”

But DNA samples wouldn’t work for federal inmate Rick Wershe Jr. The crimes leading to his ultimate conviction were complicated and the plot was loaded with twists and turns. With the patience of a saint, ‘White Boy Rick’ served just over 32 years for crimes he admits to doing, but for good reason and with good intent.

His crimes were sanctioned by the police and the FBI who had set him up as a 14-year-old kid to be an informant on the dangerous streets of Detroit. Wershe’s dad owned a popular gun store that was regularly frequented by law enforcement officers and FBI agents. As a kid, he liked hanging around the shop. As a result, he got to know the cops fairly well. One day a few of them approached him with a job offer. Actually, they pulled up in an unmarked car as Wershe was leaving school and told him to “get in.”

They were having a hard time stopping Detroit’s growing crack cocaine epidemic and Wershe was just the ticket they needed. They were going after drug kingpins and crooked cops who were on the take. Detroit’s drug enforcement team taught the ropes of buying and selling cocaine to a child with an impressionable mind. They gave him drugs, wads of cash, and an official fake I.D. Once their stooly was properly groomed, ‘White Boy Rick” was released to the wolves.

It wasn’t an easy task. The kid took a bullet to his abdomen at age 15, slicing his colon in half, in an attempt by a drug lord to eliminate his white ass from his all-Black turf. But still, Wershe continued to play the role he became so good at. As a further incentive, the cops even began throwing a little extra cocaine his way so he could make a few bucks for himself.

As Wershe continued to infiltrate drug gangs at the highest level, he became too noticeable. In Detroit where seven out of 10 residents are Black, a young white face in its underground drug trade was raising some eyebrows. The kid had to go.

How did the cops and the FBI do it? They set him up to have him arrested while in possession of enough cocaine to warrant a life sentence. Then they disavowed ever knowing him. Now it’s payback time. Warshe has spent the past year as a free man in the company of an attorney, and they’re asking for $100 million in compensation.

Wershe couldn’t fight the charges while under lock and key due to the same people who put him in prison still running Detroit. But things are different now.

The lawsuit states that Wershe “was of a malleable and impressionable mindset and did what the FBI agent and DPD officers demanded he do, that is go into drug houses he did not know, in areas of the city he did not know, and ask to buy drugs from people he did not know.”

His attorney, Nabih Ayad, stated, “They were hoping he dies in jail. They were hoping someone kills him in jail. They were hoping their story will never get out, never, because they knew what they did was wrong — morally, ethically, principally.”

Neither the FBI nor the Detroit PD has commented on the charges against them but it’ll be interesting to see what their own internal investigation will uncover if anything. It’ll do them no good to search for non-existent records and it’s doubtful that anyone who was involved is going to speak up and implicate themself even with their sweaty palm on a bible.

Injustice? Absolutely. And in the worst of ways. It’s doubtful that the lawsuit is going to reap the full amount being asked for, but no matter how much they might manage to receive, it’ll never be enough.

Biden Makes Huge Mistake with Kamala Harris

0

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are in a fight for their lives to keep from becoming lame ducks. The Democratic Party has failed to achieve anything substantial for the country. And the Senate and House cannot seem to get on the same page politically. And now that 2021 is almost over, they all have started to point fingers and blame one another for failing in politics.

All of the fighting and finger-pointing is too much to bear for Kamala Harris. She is supposed to be a tie-breaking vote for the Senate, but so far, she still has yet to cast a vote for anything meaningful. 2022 will be the year of the Republicans as they take back the seats that the liberals stole from them in 2022.

Relying on Harris is like relying on Joe Biden. He is incapable of doing it. And so is Harris with responsibility. She was tasked with solving the border issue, and so far, nothing is done. All she has done is flown over it at 35,000 feet in the air.

The morale at the party is extremely low. Many of them have withdrawn into their holes, hoping to hide from the public scrutiny long enough to trick their way back into the seats next year. But the Republican Party keeps right on revealing the failures of each Democrat because the people need to know how corrupt they have become as a party.

With a dead legislature, it is safe to say the only way Biden can get anything done is with his pen. He has no support from his base, and he cannot win the courts because conservative groups have him tied so tight to illegal laws that he cannot breathe. The president talks about unification but ticks everyone off, so they do not want to work with him.

The Democrats put themselves in a bad situation. Biden was never fit to be a president. His dementia indeed enabled him to be the confusing front the liberals needed to execute their plan. But they needed someone that could deny attempts to cheat and steal power by ballot harvesting and false counting records.

But now they are faced with the problem of who to choose in 2024. Kamala Harris was the worst choice that Biden could have made for a running mate. Her failure hand was around his neck like a millstone. And Harris is as worthless as they come, so she will not be a contender at the next presidential election.

Her failures have pushed her into her hole. She cannot find it within herself to come out and face the music. It is rare to see her mug shot on the news or at any rally. She is an embarrassment to her party and her family.

For much of Harris’s career, she has not executed any type of substantial effort to get things done. Her trip to the southern border was not fueled because she cares. The reason she made the trip was that Donald Trump was going to show up.

The Democrat’s top leaders are faltering, which is a terrible sign for the upcoming election. The Republican wave in 2020 is surging, and they are scared to death that they cannot stop it.

Joe Biden made the worse choice possible for his campaign and party by choosing Kamala Harris to be his running mate. She turned out to be one big flop of a candidate.

The Democrats had hoped that she would have proved herself to the people to be the next great leader she led them to believe she was. But she pulled the blind folders over their eyes so that she could get a little more power.

Biden’s lousy choice of a running mate will have hurt his party. He has not worked with them and certainly has not motivated any of them to follow him into battle. And their choice for him to be president was a disaster in the making.

The Democratic Party is in a mess, and no one owns up to their mistakes. They would rather blame each other so they can save their hides.

Some people who refuse to get vaccinated may not be eligible to receive unemployment benefits

0

Individuals who refuse to be vaccinated against the coronavirus may not be eligible to receive unemployment benefits, a KHOU-TV report finds.

What are the details?

KHOU’s Mia Salenetri says that generally speaking, people fired for refusing required vaccines — including the new COVID-19 vaccine — can be denied unemployment benefits in some cases.

“Some who refuse [shots] may be looking forward to the support of unemployment benefits while they look for a new job that doesn’t require vaccines. But for many of them, that might not be an option,” Salenetri writes.

“Major corporations like Disney and Walmart say they will require COVID-19 vaccines for some employees,” Salenetri writes. “In general, those fired for refusing can’t get unemployment.”

According to representatives at The Seltzer Law Firm and The Employment Law Group, in most areas of the country, if you are fired for breaking company policy — in the cases of Disney, Walmart, Google, and more refusing to provide proof of required vaccines — you are not eligible for unemployment payments.

Employment Attorney John T. Harrington told Salenetri that “[e]ven something as simple as a dress code” violation is considered company insubordination.

“It’s misconduct, and it would likely disqualify you from receiving unemployment benefits,” Harrington warned, and pointed out that in some cases, the only way to get around it is to provide a valid medical or religious exemption, which are determined with employers only on a case-by-case basis.

“We have received numerous inquiries from clients and potential clients about how courts are likely to view these situations,” he added. “We’ve been advising them that if you have one of these two valid reasons to believe that you should be exempt from a vaccination requirement, you should assert them. But otherwise, companies are entitled to require that employees be vaccinated.”

The report notes that if a company’s vaccination policy is made clear to employees — as well as the repercussions of flouting the policy — and the employee still refuses, “the disqualification [for UC benefits] is the same as if they had broken any other company rule.”

What else?

Attorney Diane Seltzer said, “In every claim for unemployment benefits, the employer has an opportunity to present the reasons for the separation. And an employer can choose not to respond. So if an employee is not truthful or not completely transparent when they apply for benefits, and the employer chooses not to contest it, the employee might get the benefits based on what they’re representing.”

Salenetri’s report also cites some Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., unemployment compensation guidelines that point to “gross misconduct” — or willfully violating a company policy or rule — which can disqualify a worker from receiving state benefits.

“Gross misconduct is actually defined, at least in part, as an act which deliberately or willfully violates an employer’s rule,” Seltzer explained. “You can be terminated if you violate a rule, especially if it’s intentional or deliberate.”

Deliberately refusing to provide proof of a COVID-19 vaccination would certainly be considered “gross misconduct,” Seltzer added

Horowitz: Medical boards threatening dangerous censorship of any dissent on COVID strategy

0

After the incumbent governmental and medical powers failed miserably in dealing with this pandemic, now is the time when we need even more robust debate, critique and free flow of information about the current strategies, and new ideas to forge a better path. We need a second opinion.

Yet, there is now an [un]natural selection in medicine and scientific academia whereby anyone who criticizes lockdowns, masks, this particular vaccine or the mass vaccination strategy, or proposes cheap and effective treatment options will have their careers destroyed. The result is fewer ideas and the continued failure of the status quo.

The Federation of State Medical Boards, a nonprofit that represents all U.S. state medical boards, announced last week that they would revoke the license of anyone caught spreading what they deem as “misinformation” about the vaccine. Mind you, our own government doesn’t have a consistent narrative on its long-term efficacy or safety, but they get to be the judge, jury, and executioner of all information flow.

“Due to their specialized knowledge and training, licensed physicians possess a high degree of public trust and therefore have a powerful platform in society, whether they recognize it or not,” FSMB said in a statement to Becker Hospital Review. “They also have an ethical and professional responsibility to practice medicine in the best interests of their patients and must share information that is factual, scientifically grounded and consensus-driven for the betterment of public health.”

Wow – that sure sounds like it applies to those who lied about lockdowns and masks, and now, appear to be lying about the vaccine as well. Remember, when Dr. Anthony Fauci said all three vaccines are nearly 100% effective against severe disease? Good times. As of Tuesday, 74% of those in critical condition with COVID in Israel – the only country to put out unified daily data on this point – were fully vaccinated.

Let’s face it, as a nation, we have locked down, masked up, and jabbed up with greater levels of intensity than anyone could have imagined. And it has failed to work. Even in the states with lower vaccination rates, it’s still relative and the majority of adults, especially older ones, are vaccinated, and the overwhelming majority of seniors are vaccinated in every state.

The biomedical fascists controlled the policies and got what they wanted. They also got failed treatments like remdesivir as the only standard of care, and successfully blocked ivermectin and other cheap and effective therapeutics. And they have failed miserably. Why should we continue to only listen to those same voices?

Our government is about to mindlessly grant full approval to the Pfizer shot, which will undoubtedly set off a domino effect of mandates and tyranny. Isn’t now the time when we need to debate all the dangerous side effects? Even with all of the censorship and the stigma against reporting adverse effects, the VAERS system reports nearly 12,000 deaths and tens of thousands of very serious reactions. There are also growing concerns that, with very high case rates in places with universal vaccination, the vaccine, after all its risk incurred, is actually inducing mutations through viral immune escape and possible antibody dependency disease enhancement (ADE).

Indeed, on page 52 the FDA’s “Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for an Unapproved Product Review Memorandum,” it states that there appears to be no concern of ADE in the short run, but, “risk of vaccine-enhanced disease over time, potentially associated with waning immunity, remains unknown and needs to be evaluated further in ongoing clinical trials and in observational studies that could be conducted following authorization and/or licensure.”

Well, with the Israelis quite confident that the immunity wanes after six months, and with Pfizer already pushing a third shot, doesn’t that mean that we have reached the reckoning of that long-term concern of ADE, which could possibly explain how the mass vaccination is making things worse?

Imagine how many more reports and studies we’d see produced on these questions – questions that the FDA admits were not studies – if people would know their careers would not be terminated for blowing the whistle?

The big question is why the purveyors of the failed status quo are so fearful of the debate and have such little confidence in the veracity of their own arguments. Well, it’s time for red states to find out. Governors and state legislatures need to bar state medical boards from penalizing doctors for exercising their freedom of speech to take a side on a broad public interest issue. If their assertions are truly that absurd, then the powers at be, with their vast resources and army of staff, should be able to deftly refute their assertions, right? What are they afraid of?

Facebook Advisers, CNN Hosts, & Many Others Helped Cuomo Cover Up His Scandals

0

It was recently reported that a number of key individuals who worked in mainstream media and Big Tech have helped Gov. Andrew Cuomo through his multiple scandals. From communication strategies to smearing accusers, it’s clear that Cuomo’s scandals were a “team effort” as portrayed in New York attorney general Letitia James’ bombshell investigation.

One of the biggest “conflicts of interest” regarding Cuomo’s report is CNN’s Chris Cuomo, the governor’s brother. The report accuses the network host of enabling the governor’s behavior on television and often protecting him through ways of discrediting the women charging him. James adds that Chris often advised his older brother on how to handle the sexual harassment allegations and often put together a “response strategy” with a team of individuals who were not State employees.

The report says these team members were often privileged with confidential information “without any formal role, duty, or obligation to the State.” Gov. Cuomo often tried to discredit the allegations and paint them in a negative light during press conferences by evading accountability. His brother Chris even helped draft part of his official statement on the allegations against Charlotte Bennett.

Gov Cuomo was even photographed making unwanted advances on Anna Ruch, one of the victims whose text messages were included in the report. She texted someone back on September 16, 2019, when CNN was praising Cuomo’s e-cigarette ban and the workplace harassment policy he put in place. She wrote she wished she’d tried to say or do something at the time.

This has nothing to do with the election or the COVID-19 crisis. It’s a huge, unstoppable stock market trend.

But CNN continues to cover the AG’s report as something “civil” but not criminal. They said the report does not reach any conclusions on whether or not it amounts to criminal prosecution. They did imply that it will likely end his political career.

CNN has always tried to justify Chris Cuomo’s role in the media and how he covers the news on political figures like his brother. All of that credit goes down the drain after the public sees how much Chris shaped the media coverage’s coverage of the governor’s multiple scandals. With all of the fine details in the released report, the network is in deeper water than they expected.

And now Facebook is getting caught in Cuomo’s web of scandals. It was included in the AG’s report that top communications manager Dani Lever helped Gov. Cuomo fight off sexual misconduct allegations. She’d worked in Cuomo’s press operations since 2014 but left in August 2020 to join Facebook. She leaked confidential files about one of the accusers Lindsey Boylan and even participated with Cuomo’s communications team to help develop a strategy against the allegations.

Boylan was one of the first women to come forward against the governor for sexual harassment, with a total of 11 on the AG’s final report. Hours after Boylan announced allegations against the governor, communications director Rich Azzopardi sent files of Boylan to several journalists, asking them to investigate what they can to “discredit and disparage her.”

Lever was one of the people assigned to disseminate her files and find what she could to defend Cuomo. She said she would help Cuomo, even though she’d already been working at Facebook for months. She even included her name on a statement disputing Boylan’s accusations of the governor suggesting they play strip poker on a 2017 taxpayer-funded trip.

James concluded in her report that figures such as Levers, Chris Cuomo, and other outside advisors enjoyed “an inappropriate level of access to Cuomo” and were regularly privileged with state-related information. This is only the “tip of the iceberg” on the report and with updated details to follow. If there are any questions about whether or not social media and cable news mingle with politics, those questions no longer exist.

Obama-era official calls for the unvaccinated to be placed on a no-fly list

0

A former assistant secretary for Homeland Security who served under President Barack Obama is suggesting that unvaccinated people should be placed on a no-fly list by the federal government.

Juliette Kayyem argues in a piece published in The Atlantic that placing the unvaccinated on a no-fly list would serve to curb the spread of the coronavirus and could lead more people to get vaccinated.

She wrote that “a no-fly list for unvaccinated adults is an obvious step that the federal government should take. It will help limit the risk of transmission at destinations where unvaccinated people travel — and, by setting norms that restrict certain privileges to vaccinated people, will also help raise the stagnant vaccination rates that are keeping both the economy and society from fully recovering.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 58.3% of the U.S. population ages 12 and older has been fully vaccinated, while 67.9% has received at least one dose.

“The public debate about making vaccination a precondition for travel, employment, and other activities has described this approach as vaccine mandates, a term that, to conservative critics, suggests that unvaccinated people are being ordered around arbitrarily. What is actually going on, mostly, is that institutions are shifting burdens to unvaccinated people — denying them access to certain spaces, requiring them to take regular COVID-19 tests, charging them for the cost of that testing — rather than imposing greater burdens on everyone. Americans still have a choice to go unvaccinated, but that means giving up on certain societal benefits,” Kayyem wrote. “Amid a global health crisis, people who defy public-health guidance are not, and do not deserve to be, a protected class.”

According to the Harvard Kennedy School of Government website, Kayyem “is currently the Senior Belfer Lecturer in International Security at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where she is faculty chair of the Homeland Security and Security and Global Health Projects.”

Conservative commentator Allie Beth Stuckey, host of “Relatable,” commented about the idea of banning the unvaccinated from flights: “This has nothing to do with a virus with a 99% survival rate & everything to do with people looking for an excuse for authoritarianism and finally found it,” she tweeted.
