‘Do not vote for the worst Mom ever’: Florida state Sen. Kelli Stargel’s daughter wants to tank her mom’s bid for US Congress

0

Florida state Sen. Kelli Stargel’s daughter Hannah has released a video opposing her mother’s bid for U.S. Congress.

“Do not vote for the worst Mom ever,” declares text that accompanies the Tik Tok video post. The post also contains multiple hashtags, some of which include, “#dontvotestargel,” “#badmoms,” and “#religioustrauma.”

In the video, Hannah Stargel said that her mom had neglected her and prioritized politics above all else. She also described her mom as “a horrible, horrible person to look up to.”

According to Florida Politics, the the Republican congressional candidate issued a statement which said, “I love my daughter with all of my heart.”

Stargel is slated to compete in the Republican primary for Florida’s 15th Congressional District.

“I think my mom still loves me, but the way that they show love is very much through their filter,” Hannah Stargel said, according to the outlet.

The Advocate has described Hannah as “bisexual.”

The website votestargel.com describes the Congressional candidate as someone who has pushed back against “socialist Democrats.”

“While our freedom, our families, and our way of life have been under attack by the liberal agenda, Kelli Stargel has been on the front lines fighting alongside Governor Ron DeSantis – to defend our conservative Florida values,” the website declares. “When socialist Democrats tried to shut down our economy, Kelli fought back and protected our right to earn a living. When socialist Democrats tried to shut down our churches, Kelli fought back to ensure religious freedom was protected, even in times of statewide emergency.

“When socialist Democrats tried to mask our children and mandate vaccines, Kelli fought back to defend the rights of our students, our parents, and our workers. When socialist Democrats tried to allow biological males to take over women’s sports, Kelli fought back. When socialist Democrats tried to indoctrinate our children with Critical Race Theory and radical gender ideology, Kelli fought back,” the site states.

Elon Musk considers the right of gun ownership ‘an important safeguard against potential tyranny of government,’ says he favors restricting assault weapon sales to individuals in special situations

0

Billionaire business magnate Elon Musk told CNBC via emails on Wednesday that he is in favor of “tight background checks” for all firearm sales and that he supports restricting assault weapon sales to individuals in special situations, such as gun range proprietors or individuals residing in a “high risk location, [such as an area with prolific] gang warfare.”

Musk also noted that he thinks the right to bear arms serves as a critical check against the possibility of tyrannical governments.

“Regarding recent events, the shooters are obviously doing this to generate the most amount of attention possible. Why is the media doing exactly what the mass murderers want?” Musk wrote, according to the outlet.

“I strongly believe that the right to bear arms is an important safeguard against potential tyranny of government. Historically, maintaining their power over the people is why those in power did not allow public ownership of guns,” Musk noted.

Musk, who plans to purchase Twitter and transform it into a platform that upholds the principle of free speech, said last week that he plans to vote Republican.

“In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold …” Musk tweeted.

Business Insider reported last week about sexual misconduct allegations made against Musk, but Musk has denied the veracity of the claims.

“In my 30 year career, including the entire MeToo era, there’s nothing to report, but, as soon as I say I intend to restore free speech to Twitter & vote Republican, suddenly there is …” Musk tweeted.

SpaceX president and COO Gwynne Shotwell noted in an email to employees last week that she thinks the allegations against Musk are untrue.

“Personally, I believe the allegations to be false; not because I work for Elon, but because I have worked closely with him for 20 years and never seen nor heard anything resembling these allegations,” Shotwell noted in the email to employees, according to CNBC.

The Uvalde shooting & the REAL ‘replacement’ theory that threatens America

0

In the wake of the horrific Buffalo shooting, the left-wing media tried to paint all conservatives as subscribers to “replacement theory” — the idea that immigrants are taking over to such an extent that they will destroy white Western civilization. Of course, no serious conservative believes in this ugly, racist, dangerous ideology, but there is a ton of ACTUAL replacement going on, and it has nothing to do with immigration or racism.

What we saw yesterday in Uvalde, Texas, is more dark horrific evidence of the only replacement theory that ultimately matters because it affects everything. We’ve replaced God in society. Glenn argues it’s why gun control is ultimately useless — even though he completely understands our human impulse to DO something. While our culture has replaced God for rot, the Biden White House and Democrats are also working overtime to replace key elements of American political, legal, economic, and cultural life.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin of “LevinTV” tells Glenn why Media Matters’ latest hit job on him over his Uvalde coverage is pathetic. “Stop pushing God out of the public square” is not a radical concept to help prevent evil from taking hold in our schools. He also takes on the Democrats’ attempts to destroy the Supreme Court, voting rights, and the separation of powers.

BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey of “Relatable” tells Glenn why she believes the Uvalde shooting reveals how we are failing young men in this country and what we must do to stop the replacement theory that threatens to keep an entire generation from becoming a benefit to society.

Chicago man points gun at news crew in broad daylight during live shot about rising crime

0

Police are searching for a man that pointed a gun at a news crew during their live shot from the streets of Chicago, Illinois, about the rise in crime.

Joanie Lum of WFLD-TV was reporting from the corner of Clark and Hubbard at about 7 a.m. when a man pointed what appeared to be a gun at the camera from behind her back.

The video shows him dancing away and waving the gun at some other object.

Chicago police have named him a person of interest and they’re working to identify him. He is accused of aggravated assault with a firearm.

“Good Day Chicago” anchor Anita Padilla said that Lum was “understandably shaken” by the incident.

“The gun was one foot from her head as he pointed at the camera or cameraman Gary,” she added. “Thank God she is okay.”

In its later report about the incident, WFLD showed further video of the suspect in the same area walking with cups of coffee in his hands.

Some of the viewers saw the incident live on the air and tweeted their support to Lum on social media.

“I saw the incident with the man brandishing a gun on camera . my friend please take caution i pray for your protection,” said one viewer.

“Thank you. Very upsetting,” responded Lum.

CWN Chicago reported that police had responded to a call about a man fitting the description of the suspect and causing a disruption at a Starbucks coffee store just a few blocks away. They are unsure if the two incidents are related.

Murders and shootings in downtown Chicago have surged by 64% compared to the same period last year. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat, said she was “not happy” about the worsening violence.

Here’s the video of the alarming incident:

LEVIN: Donny ‘Douche’ Deutsch smears conservatives as white nationalists

0

If MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace implied Buffalo’s deranged mass murderer could be tied to the Republicans and Jan. 6, would you believe her? In this clip, as Mark points out, poisonous smear merchants Wallace and fellow propagandist Donny Deutsch spewed garbage. And as Deutsch advocates Democrats tar all conservatives as white nationalists, Mark exposes both Wallace and Deutsch as the actual hate-filled racists.

On this episode of LevinTV, Mark highlights Wallace and Deutsch’s attempts to paint a grim picture of Tucker Carlson’s fan base as white nationalists comparable to the perpetrators of the Buffalo shooting and the latest elementary school shooting near San Antonio, Texas.

Transgender man convicted of assault for having sex with women who did not know he was using a prosthetic device

0

A transgender man was convicted of assault by penetration for having sexual relationships with three women who did not know he was using a prosthetic device.

Tarjit Singh, who was born a female and named Hannah Walters, was convicted over three relationships he had with women from June 2010 until March 2016.

“These victims have been deceived, betrayed and lied to in the most disturbing and traumatic of ways. One of the victims was just 16 years old when she met the defendant,” said Melissa Garner of the Crown Prosecution Service in the United Kingdom.

One of Singh’s victims said she wasn’t aware that he had female genitalia until months into their relationship when she found his strap-on prosthetic penis.

His victims said that Singh used clothing during sex in the dark to conceal the prosthetic.

“He looked like a guy, he acted like a guy,” said one victim about their sexual interactions.

He is accused of lashing out at his victims and being manipulative and abusive when they began to ask questions.

Singh was caught after one of his victims called police when he became abusive. They discovered the other two victims in the course of their investigation.

He claimed during the trial that the victims knew of his gender status.

“Singh has never admitted his crimes and has continued to claim that these victims were aware of his gender,” continued Garner. “The victims in this case have shown immense courage in coming to court and giving evidence.”

He was convicted of three counts of assault by penetration and six counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. He also was convicted of making a threat after a trial.

“Sexual offences can be some of the most complex cases that we prosecute. I hope these convictions go some way in providing the victims with closure,” Garner concluded.

Mattel releases Barbie doll based on transgender actor Laverne Cox: ‘We are proud to highlight the importance of inclusion and acceptance at every age’

0

Mattel has released a Barbie Tribute Collection doll based on transgender actor Laverne Cox, a biological male who identifies as a woman. According to Cox’s biography on Twitter, Cox is a “Four time Emmy Nominated Actress and Emmy winning producer.”

“What excites me most about her being out in the world is that trans young people can see her and maybe get to purchase her and play with her, and know that there’s a Barbie made by Mattel, for the first time, in the likeness of a trans person,” Cox said, according to People. Cox also said, “That in this environment where trans kids are being attacked … this can also be a celebration of transness, and also a space for them to dream, understand and be reminded that trans is beautiful.”

People reported that Cox noted being “very involved” in designing the doll.

“I was like, ‘Can we make her look more like me? And more African American?'” Cox said. “And we had a conversation about highlights and lowlights because I’m blonde most of the time now, but I’m a Black girl, so I need a dark root. And we had a whole conversation about how they can’t do that, but they could do dark low lights.”

As a child, Cox wanted to play with Barbie dolls, but was not allowed to do so. But later in life at the recommendation of a therapist, Cox purchased a Barbie as an adult.

“I begged my mother for a Barbie doll and she said no because I was assigned male at birth,” Cox said. “And when I was in my 30s, I was in therapy and telling my therapist that I was denied the opportunity to play with Barbie dolls. And my therapist said, ‘It’s never too late to have a happy childhood, and what you should do for your inner child is go out and buy yourself a Barbie doll.'”

“I played with my Barbie, and I told my mom what my therapist had said. And that first Christmas after that, my mom sent me a Barbie doll,” Cox said. “And she’s been sending me Barbies for Christmas and for my birthday.”

According to People, Executive Vice President and Global Head of Barbie and Dolls at Mattel Lisa McKnight said in a statement, “We are proud to highlight the importance of inclusion and acceptance at every age and to recognize Laverne’s significant impact on culture with a Tribute Collection Barbie.”

Fox News reporter calls out deceptive video edit of his report on Texas shooting: ‘You absolute hack’

0

A Fox News reporter lashed out at a misleading edit of his report that was posted to Twitter to make it appear as if he were spreading an unverified rumor about the horrific mass shooting at an elementary school in Texas.

Bill Melugin, working from the Los Angeles bureau, was incensed at the deceptive editing posted to social media by a former Deadspin and Daily Beast reporter, Timothy Burke.

The video he posted lasted about 6 seconds and garnered over 322k views.

The full quote from the report completely undermined Burke’s accusation.

“There were rumors that were flying around that this was some sort of Border Patrol chase,” said Melugin. “I have not heard anything of the sort. I have not confirmed any of that information. I have no reason to believe any of, that those rumors are credible at this moment.”

Melugin also ripped into Burke over the video.

“The reason you edited it down to six seconds is because you cut out the part where I shot down these rumors entirely you absolute hack.” Melugin tweeted.

While Burke’s tweet with the misleading video received only 456 likes and 90 retweets, Melugin’s response garnered more than 11.1k likes and 2,166 retweets.

Some on social media conjectured that the shooter, who was later identified as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, might have been an illegal alien based on the presence of Border Patrol agents at the crime scene. A statement from Homeland Security assistant secretary of public affairs Marsha Espinosa clarified that Border Patrol agents responded to a call for help from Texas law enforcement agents at the shooting.

“Risking their own lives, these Border Patrol Agents and other officers put themselves between the shooter and children on the scene to draw the shooter’s attention away from potential victims and save lives,” Espinosa explained.

One report said that a Border Patrol agent had rushed into the mass shooting in order to shoot and kill the assailant.

Here’s another report from Melugin in Texas:

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tells Rep. Boebert to quit Congress ‘instead of acting like a useless piece of furniture when babies are shot with AR15s’

0

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York suggested that Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado should quit Congress.

Boebert tweeted on Wednesday, “You cannot legislate away evil.” Her tweet came in the wake of the deadly mass shooting on Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

“Why even be in Congress if you don’t believe in doing your job?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response to her GOP colleague’s post. “Just quit and let someone who actually gives a damn do it instead of acting like a useless piece of furniture when babies are shot with AR15s that we let teen boys impulse buy before they can legally have a beer.”

Boebert replied to Ocasio-Cortez, “Ms. Defund the Police, Gun Free Zones have proven to be deadly. Let me know when you’re ready to do your job and effectively protect our schools with armed security. Let’s meet and solve this.”

Bill Melugin of Fox News reported that Texas DPS informed him that “there was in fact a school police officer on campus at Robb Elementary who exchanged gunfire with the shooter and the officer was shot & injured. That is when the shooter ran inside the school, barricaded himself in a class, & began killing.” Melugin continued, “Adding to this, TX DPS tells me three local officers were injured in the shooting, and as a result of the shootout with the school officer, the gunman dropped a bag of ammo he couldn’t bring inside. A responding Zavala County deputy engaged & had a weapon malfunction.”

Last year, Ocasio-Cortez sounded off about a Christmas photo in which Boebert’s sons were each holding a firearm.

“Tell me again where Christ said ‘use the commemoration of my birth to flex violent weapons for personal political gain’?,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, adding, “lol @ all the years Republicans spent on cultural hysteria of society ‘erasing Christmas and it’s meaning’ when they’re doing that fine all on their own.”

Boebert responded, “@AOC uses her position as a Congresswoman to attack my boys with their Christmas presents. Not a good look, Sandy…”

Ocasio-Cortez was among those who pounced on Republican Sen. Ted Cruz on Tuesday after the senator noted that he and his wife were praying for kids and families after the shooting.

“Heidi & I are fervently lifting up in prayer the children and families in the horrific shooting in Uvalde. We are in close contact with local officials, but the precise details are still unfolding. Thank you to heroic law enforcement & first responders for acting so swiftly,” Cruz tweeted.

“Aren’t you slated to headline a speaking gig for the NRA in three days – in Houston, no less? You can do more than pray. Faith without works is dead,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response to Cruz.

Schools Announce Banned Backpacks, Wanding Measures, More Police

Schools all over the country announced Wednesday new safety protocols in the wake Monday’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary school in Uvalde Texas. The gunman, an 18-year old, killed 19 children and 2 teachers.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott confirmed that Salvador Ramos was killed by a Border Patrol officer and thanked law enforcement for their “amazing courage” in running to gunfire to save lives.

A bulletin containing new rules that will “effectively immediately” is available on the Buffalo Public Schools website. Buffalo is also mourning the mass shooting that occurred at Top’s grocery last week, where a White supremacist claimed to have killed 10 and injured three people.

According to the Buffalo Schools statement, “To ensure safety for all, each of our school sites will keep their doors locked during school hours.” There are cameras at each school site’s front entrance. To be allowed to buzz into a school, visitors, parents and caregivers must announce their names and the name of their child. Visitors may be asked to leave the school by being searched for safety reasons. For an indeterminate amount of time, the Buffalo Police Department or Buffalo Public Schools Security personnel will be present at schools and surrounding areas.

San Antonio school districts also have new safety protocols. Many of these include an increased presence of police on campuses.

Alamo Heights Independent Schools District stated that “Tomorrow, in an abundance of caution,” they will have a police presence on all campuses. “Although no threats are known to any of our schools,” the Alamo Heights Independent School District stated. All events at the end of the year will go ahead as planned.”

Eduardo Hernandez, Edgewood ISD Superintendent for Schools, also stated in a statement that additional officers would be assigned to the campuses until the end of this school year.

Hernandez stated, “I want the EISD community to be reassured that student safety in Edgewood ISD will be top priority.” The EISD Police Department patrols 16 miles of the district every day, as part of the preventive measures that were taken before today’s tragic events. They will also be more visible and present on our campuses with an increased frequency. EISD is against violence.

Heroux tweeted, “We have funded and placed a gunshot detector system at all 9 of the city schools; the new highschool will have the ninth system.” We are still setting up the system at the new high school. When triggered by a shot, these gunshot detection systems notify the police and all other people on the notification list immediately. We save lives by reducing the time it takes for police to arrive.

Heroux stated that the technology is identical to the one used in the White House as well as the Pentagon.

Heroux said that the Attleboro Police Department also conducts active shooting training. This allows police to simulate what to do in an emergency if there’s an active shooter at one of our schools.

South San Antonio Independent Schools District has announced that backpacks are not allowed on campuses in the coming days. Campus accessibility will only be restricted to parents or guardians who have proper identification.

Many other school districts in the country have also announced safety measures.
