Landlord caught on video in tenant's home sniffing her underwear
[NYPOST] A Connecticut landlord allegedly sneaked into his tenant’s apartment to sniff her underwear — and the disturbing act was caught on camera, police said.Jorge Orellana-Arias, of East Haven, was charged Thursday with third-degree burglary after the woman told cops she had video of him inside her unoccupied apartment several times rifling through her and her daughter’s clothing, the Hartford Courant reported.

The woman first suspected something was wrong in May and started "barricading adjoining doors" in an effort to thwart the alleged intruder. But Orellana-Arias then used another door to get inside the residence, police said.

The woman set up hidden cameras inside the apartment to prove her intuition and the footage showed Orellana-Arias going through her and her daughter’s clothing, Sherlocks said.

"She stated that the camera caught Orellana-Arias entering her apartment through a side door, before proceeding to both bedrooms where he would locate female underwear," police said in a statement. "The video, which was provided to officers, shows Orellana-Arias bringing female garments to his nose, apparently in an effort to sniff them."

The woman also reported that Orellana-Arias entered the residence at one point while her daughter was home alone, police said.

He was apparently "startled" by the girl’s presence and left the apartment "immediately," police said.

The allegedly lecherous landlord was arrested Thursday before posting $25,000 bond. It’s unclear if he’s hired an attorney who could comment on the allegations. He’s due in court on Sept. 14, the Courant reported.

4th person killed overnight in Seattle's deadly weekend of gun violence
[KOMONEWS] Police detectives are working overtime after a man was shot and killed Sunday night outside an apartment building in the Lake City neighborhood - Seattle's fourth homicide in less than 24 hours.

Officers and medics responded to the scene, in the 12700 block of 33rd Avenue NE, at around 10 p.m. after several 911 callers reported hearing a series of gunshots.

A security guard at the apartment building found a man with a gunshot wound to his chest and helped emergency personnel get to the victim.

Officers and medics attempted life-saving measures but the 28-year-old victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

A preliminary investigation found that the victim was returning home to his apartment when a car pulled up and multiple people opened fire, said Valerie Carson of the Seattle police.

Another person was also struck with a bullet and has a graze wound after that bullet went into one of the nearby apartments.

Chicago expressway shootings continue to surge despite $12.5M grant, federal intervention
[FOXNEWS] There have been 137 shootings on reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel...
-area expressways so far this year as of Sunday, Illinois State Police confirmed to Fox News. There were 128 expressway shootings in Chicago in all of 2020, and 52 in all of 2019.

Dan Ryan Expressway, which runs from Circle Interchange with I-290 near downtown through the South Side, is perhaps the most dangerous highway in Chicago. A Jeep Wrangler was riddled with bullet holes near 37th Street on the Dan Ryan Wednesday, which marked the 43rd shooting so far this year on that roadway.

-Great Cultural Revolution
At the Olympics, the USA loses again and again, but Americans don't care
[AMERICANTHINKER] For many decades, the quadrennial Olympic games were grand moments of patriotism. Even as the Soviet teams used mountains of government money to train their athletes, our plucky amateurs somehow kept winning. There was a reason the Miracle on Ice was a miracle. Of late, though, our athletes are no longer amateurs; the Soviets are gone; we worship at the Chinese shrine; the Olympics are on every two years and broadcast 24/7, making for complete over-saturation; and too many of our Olympic athletes hate the country they're representing. For that reason, those Americans who love their country the most have cared the least when Americans have fallen flat in Tokyo.

The first occasion for an anti-Olympic celebration came when the women's soccer team suffered a humiliating defeat to Sweden, with the Swedish team beating the Americans 3-0. That score, in a game renowned for sometimes having only one score during the entire game, was a blow-out. The Americans didn't just lose; they were humiliated. And as many conservatives felt, it couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch of self-centered, unpleasant, unpatriotic women. Brigitte Gabriel's response is representative of the conservative view:

The next to go down in flames, on Sunday, was the men's basketball team, which embarrassingly lost to La Belle France. Who loses basketball to La Belle France? And once again, because the NBA was one of the leaders in using the Black Lives Matter movement as the occasion to disrespect the country that gave its athletes such extraordinary fame and wealth, Americans didn't care. The patriots not only were unmoved, but also did the unthinkable and celebrated an American loss at the Olympics:

The American athletes continued to offend at least half of America when the American swimmers slobbered all over Mrs. Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S., who gives the geriatric a bad name...
, chanting "Dr. Jill Biden" to the woman who is a combination of Lady Macbeth and Edith Wilson as she sat in the stands.

I hope they all lose, every last one of them, and lest anyone ask, "But what about the athletes who love America?," here’s my answer: if you belong to a business — say, the American Olympic sports franchise — that hates its customers, the fact that you, personally, don't hate those customers is irrelevant. The customers are going to hate you. If you dislike that reality, it's time to get into another business or start pushing back against the haters within your organization.

Minnesota fourth-graders told to hide 'equity survey' questions from parents
[FOXNEWS] A Minnesota fourth-grade student and her mother expressed concern to their local school board after her class was given an "equity survey" and students were told not to tell her parents about the activity.

Fourth-grader Hayley Yasgar told "Fox & Friends" on Monday, sitting alongside her mother Kelsey, that the questions were confusing and it made her "very nervous and uncomfortable" when the students were told not to tell their parents.

According to a video uploaded by Alphanews, when students didn’t understand some of the survey questions, they were told by a teacher in the Sartell-St. Stephen School District to not repeat the survey questions to their parents.

"The survey asked questions that some students didn’t understand. Even after hearing an explanation from their teacher, some still couldn't comprehend the survey questions," The Center Square reported.

The George Floyd incident sparked a nationwide conversation on race and the role of policing. School districts across America are pushing Critical Race Theory

...teaches that skin color is the most important characteristic of any person, which translates to separate but equal with a different bunch in charge. All whites and Asians are born racist and racism permeates every aspect of society, which should be dismantled and the remains turned over to the kind of dipshit who pushes this nonsense...
on students to attempt to contextualize current events on matters of race.

Michael Flynn slammed online for joking about assassinating someone in DC as he's gifted semi-automatic rifle at church
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] This is why we don’t joke about killing Americans here at Rantburg. Too many take it seriously — and most of the possible reactions are undesirable.
  • Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was presented with a semi-automatic rifle at an event at the Church of Glad Tidings on Sunday

  • Jason Parker, who owns a gun company, told him that he was 'trying to come up with a rifle that we thought was appropriate for a general'

  • He then handed the former general a Woodland Camo AR-15, to which Flynn replied: 'Maybe I'll find someone in Washington D.C.'

  • The crowd at the Yuba City, California church then started laughing and applauding

  • But Flynn faced backlash for his comment on social media, where people called his comment a 'clear and present danger' and reported him to the FBI

French Intelligence Warned Obama State Department About Wuhan Lab In 2015: Former US Official
[Daily Caller via ZERO] By 2017, France had been 'kicked out' of the lab, and cooperation had ceased, leading French officials to once again warn the US State Department of 'grave concerns' as to Chinese motivations, former State official David Asher told the Daily Caller.

The State Department alleged in January 2021, at the end of the Trump administration, that the Wuhan lab had engaged in classified research on behalf of the Chinese military since at least 2017.

The State Department did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

On Thursday, China said it would not allow the World Health Organization to inspect the lab further. China has blocked the WHO from accessing important records at the lab. -DCNF

"The Chinese basically sucked State into its honey pot operation to gain access to U.S. technology, knowledge, and material support. Classic. Just as they have done in every sector," said Asher.

According to USAID, the US Agency for International Development provided $1.1 million to US-based NGO EcoHealth Alliance for a sub-agreement with the Wuhan Institute of Virology - on top of millions received from the Department of Defense's Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and $600,000 annual grant from Dr. Anthony Fauci's National Institutes of Health.

In short, after the Obama administration paused Gain-of-Function research, US entities funneled money through EcoHealth to continue it, despite France's warning.

According to Asher, the NIH, DoD and USAID should have ceased federal funding in 2015.

Grandson of Rev. Billy Graham in critical condition with COVID-19
[NYP] The grandson of late evangelist Billy Graham is hospitalized in critical condition with COVID-19, relatives said.

Jonathan Lotz, who reportedly worked with his grandfather from 1994 through 2002, was in an ICU at an undisclosed hospital Sunday, according to a Facebook post by his mother.

"Pray he will not have to go on a ventilator, that his oxygen levels would increase, that his lungs will be strengthened, healed and that his health will be fully restored — with no long-term complications," wrote Anne Graham Lotz, one of the Rev. Billy Graham’s five children. "My heart is filled with gratitude for your prayers.

Chicago cops are accused of fabricating evidence from ShotSpotter technology used by departments around the US that detects gunshots with artificial intelligence and led to fatal police shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News]
  • Activists in Chicago are demand the CPD end its contract with ShotSpotter, an AI-powered hidden-microphone system used to detect gunshots

  • Reports have shown that its sensors are disproportionately placed in minority communities

  • The technology immediately dispatches police to the alleged location of a gunshot, which led to the March 29th shooting of 13-year old Adam Toledo

  • In a number of cases, prosecutors have withdrawn its findings due to inaccuracy claims where it appears police have had the information altered

  • In May, the MacArthur Justice Center found that 86 percent of the alerts led to no evidence a crime at all

If you load the city of Chicago into your Geographic Information System (GIS) and draw polygons around the minority neighborhoods, you would find most of the Shot Spotter sites within those polygons. So yeah, it's totally racist.

If you load the city of Chicago into your GIS and drew polygons around neighborhoods with an above-average number of shootings, you would find most of the Shot Spotter sites within those polygons. That's just practical. No need for a Shot Spotter if there are no shots, right?
