Cop Involved With Breonna Taylor’s Murder Has Record Expunged Clean

brett hankison 1050x525

On September 23, 2020, knowing that there would be backlash for their decision, streets in downtown Louisville were blocked off officials, police put on high alert, and government buildings were boarded up as officials announced the charges against former officer Brett Hankison for his role in the raid which left Breonna Taylor dead. The subsequent outrage was well deserved as Hankison was not charged for anything that led to the death of Taylor. Instead, this trigger happy cowboy cop was charged with “first degree wanton endangerment” for shooting like a madman which led to...

SCOOP: Ray Epps Silent on 2015 Criminal Citation

Ray Epps January 6th

On the heels of speaking to The New York Times about accusations of being an FBI informant who helped incite the January 6 Capitol Hill riot, Arizona man Ray Epps has declined to answer questions about a 2015 criminal trespass citation he received in Pennsylvania—a matter whose resolution is unclear. Speculation that Epps (full name James Ray Epps Sr.) may be a “fed” has circulated ever since Revolver News published a two-part deep dive into him in late 2021. Revolver News questioned why Epps hasn’t been charged in relation to January 6, despite video footage showing him urging protestors...

Released FBI Document Asserts Saudi Embassy Employee Connected to 9/11

Over the past several months, the FBI released thousands of pages of material relating to its investigation of Saudi government links to the 9/11 attacks. This wave of declassifications was pursuant to Executive Order 14040, which President Biden issued on Sept. 3 under pressure from more than 1,800 survivors, family members and first responders who threatened to protest his presence at memorial events if he didn’t make good on a 2020 campaign promise to boost 9/11 transparency. The published documents are riddled with redactions, but a Stark Realities review of the trove has uncovered...

Israeli police attacked Palestinian protesters and journalists on the Temple Mount, leaving at least 152 injured from riot munitions, the Red Crescent reported.  Israeli forces began targeting Palestinian protesters at the al-Aqsa Mosque on Friday. According to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), the police raid was carried out after Palestinians set up wooden barriers at the site and some firecrackers were thrown.  “Young men prepared wooden roadblocks around the al-Qibli prayer hall in anticipation of a possible Israeli occupation forces (IOF) raid,” the PCHR said. “They...

What Does a Capitol Fence Say to the World?

capitol police

Spooked by the threat of anti-Biden trucker convoys heading to Washington, high fences will reportedly return around the US Capitol in the coming days. When President Biden gives his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, he will have no fears of hearing any caterwauling from average Americans who are being impoverished and injected thanks to his policies. Hundreds of National Guard troops will also be deployed on the streets of Washington, perhaps finally vanquishing the local epidemic of double-parking and jaywalking. Any fence that is erected around the Capitol will be designed to...

Biden to Deploy National Guard to Confront American Trucker Protest

Inspired by the movement created by Canadian truckers, anti-Covid lockdown and vaccine mandate protests are springing up around the world. The American iteration has been dubbed the ‘People’s Freedom Convoy’ and is set to kick off Wednesday, when truckers will begin a trek to the nation’s capital timed for President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address.  As in Ottawa, however, they may face a harsh crackdown when they arrive. Rather than embracing the Bill of Rights, the Biden administration seems to be adopting the policies of Justin Trudeau's regime in Canada. The Pentagon announced...

Two Under-Appreciated Contributions of the Catholic Church – Thomas E. Woods Jr., Ph.D.

the most catholic church woods

https://youtu.be/6-5-bOGeYUc Locke may have been and indeed was an ardent Protestant, but he was also a Protestant scholastic, heavily influenced by the founder of Protestant scholasticism, the Dutchman Hugo Grotius, who in turn was heavily influenced by the late Spanish Catholic scholastics. ... While Locke developed libertarian natural rights thought more fully than his predecessors, it was still squarely embedded in the scholastic natural law tradition. Murray N. Rothbard, Ph.D., Economic Thought Before Adam Smith, p. 314 This is a clip from my discussion with Tom Woods of The Tom...
