-Lurid Crime Tales-
Manhattan City Council Candidate Caught With Dominatrix In Leaked Video
[New York Post] It's a late-breaking case of electoral bondage.

Zack Weiner, 26, a City Council candidate running in Manhattan, has found his campaign tied up after video of him enjoying a sadomasochism session found its way onto Twitter. (Isn't there another Weiner in that town - wonder if they are related...hmmm)
What is it with Noo Yawk Weiners?
"My magnificent domme friend played with Upper West Side city council candidate Zack Weiner and I’m the only one who has the footage," reads a tweet from the anonymous account which posted the video last week.

The footage — flagged to The Post by Weiner’s own campaign manager — shows a gagged Weiner, unable to speak, subjecting himself to various abuses by a leather-bound woman who pours wax on him and clips his nipples with clothespins.

The footage was filmed at Parthenon studio in Midtown — which is known for its high-quality BDSM dungeons.

(Ride'm Cowboy!)

Gavin Newsom Assaulted by 'Aggressive' Homeless Man on Oakland Street
[BREITBART] A man has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, Gov. Gavin can't be Bee'd Newsom
...the Mitt Romneyesque mayor of San Francisco as it transformed itself into Poopville, currently governor of California as it transforms itself into Cinderland...
(D) during his visit to downtown Oakland, authorities said Friday.

Newsom was walking to a barbershop and pizzeria on Washington Street in Old Oakland to promote small businesses when he was "approached by an aggressive individual," said Fran Clader, director of communications for the California Highway Patrol, which provides security for the governor.

Officers removed Newsom from the situation and arrested the 54-year-old man, she said.

Newsom did not appear injured, the East Bay Times reported, and quipped to news hounds that different people have different ways of saying hello. The assailant allegedly threw a water bottle at the governor, according to law enforcement sources who spoke to the East Bay Times.

The man was taken to Alameda County jail, where he was booked for investigation of resisting an executive officer and assaulting a public official.

Reached by phone, a woman who identified as the suspect’s sister described him as a homeless man with severe mental health problems. She said the allegation made by authorities was “consistent with his past behavior.”

Wisconsin GOP congressman pushes bill to ban critical race theory in DC public schools


[FOXNEWS] Wisconsin Republican Rep. Glenn Grothman introduced a bill Friday that would ban Washington, D.C. public schools from teaching critical race theory — a controversial doctrine that assumes systematic racism is a defining feature of U.S. history and society.

Grothman said that critical race theory teaches children "to hate each other and hate their country."

"In other words, students being taught that they are defined by the color of their skin, not the content of their character," he said in a statement.

Congressional politicians have the jurisdiction to enact laws that affect the nation’s capital, as D.C. is not a state.

Fox News could not immediately reach Mayor Muriel Bowser for comment on the legislation.

Bowser has consistently pushed for statehood to circumvent the long-held congressional power that politicians wield over the city's nearly 700,000 residents.

The "Ending Critical Race Theory in D.C. Public Schools Act" was backed by four GOP congressmen, including Reps. Bob Gibbs of Ohio, Ralph Norman of South Carolina, and Texas politicians Pat Fallon and Ronny Jackson.

China-Japan-Koreas
Here's What the Chinese Defector Has Reportedly Given Us About COVID...But Also on Joe and Hunter Biden
[Town Hall] As the media laments being totally wrong about the COVID lab leak theory, more details are coming out about the Chinese defector who has been taken into US custody. The man alleges that he has knowledge about a slew of Chinese bioweapons programs and COVID. He alleges that the current pandemic was caused by a lab leak, and that bats were the real cover-up story. The defector alleges that while the lab leak was an accident, it was allowed to spread.

In addition, Dong Jingwei has provided DIA with the following information:

  • Early pathogenic studies of the virus we now know as SARS-CoV-2
  • Models of predicted COVID-19 spread and damage to the US and the world
  • Financial records detailing which exact organizations and governments funded the research on SARS-CoV-2 and other biological warfare research
  • Names of US citizens who provide intel to China
  • Names of Chinese spies working in the US or attending US universities
  • Financial records showing US businessmen and public officials who’ve received money from the Chinese government
  • Details of meetings US government officials had (perhaps unwittingly) with Chinese spies and members of Russia’s SVR
  • How the Chinese government gained access to a CIA communications system, leading to the death of dozens of Chinese people who were working with the CIA


  • Okay, so this goes well beyond COVID and bioweapons. It's a window into the extensive and entrenched intelligence network China has established here. He knows the spies, who's getting paid to be a rat, and much more. The alleged studies showing the damage COVID can inflict on the world only bolsters the lab leak theory. That it was intentional to curb China getting rolled in the socioeconomic arena. Trump had them on their heels, and this pandemic gave them breathing room. If China couldn't win or succeed, then no one can. A totalitarian government that is conducting a high-tech genocide against the Uighur population is bound to do anything to accomplish its nefarious goals. Oh, and the Bidens are in this intelligence dump as well. As Jen noted, "Dong also has provided DIA with copies of the contents of the hard drive on Hunter Biden's laptop, showing the information the Chinese government has about Hunter's pornography problem and about his (and Joe's) business dealings with Chinese entities."

    Government Corruption
    BlackRock in The White House
    [The Last Refuge] With Joe Biden in the White House you can expect to hear the name "Blackrock" in the headlines connected to a variety of issues from real estate purchasing to green energy projects with massive domestic and international investments.

    BlackRock, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries) is a massive publicly traded multinational investment firm with over $8.68 trillion in assets under management [December 31, 2020 financial statement] in more than 100 countries across the globe. To say that Blackrock is invested in globalism, climate change and leftist politics, would be a severe understatement {See Here}. Larry Fink is the CEO and people like Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s attorney of record, are on the board.

    The Chairman of the BlackRock Investment Institute is Tom Donilon, President Obama’s former National Security Advisor (before Susan Rice), and a key advisor to Joe Biden throughout his career in politics.

    Here’s where it really gets interesting.

    ♦Tom Donilon’s brother, Mike Donilon is a Senior Advisor to Joe Biden {link} providing guidance on what policies should be implemented within the administration. Mike Donilon guides the focus of spending, budgets, regulation and white house policy from his position of Senior Advisor to the President.

    ♦Tom Donilon’s wife, Catherine Russell, is the White House Personnel Director {link}. In that position Donilon’s wife controls every hire in the Office of the Presidency.

    ♦Tom Donilon’s daughter, Sarah Donilon, who graduated college in 2019, now works on the White House National Security Council {link}

    So let me just summarize this.... The Chairman of the BlackRock Investment Institute, the guy who tells the $8.7 trillion investment firm BlackRock where to put their money, has a brother who is the Senior Advisor to Joe Biden; has a wife who is the White House Personnel Director; and has a daughter who is now on the National Security Council.

    Also Ethics experts are concerned that the children of top Biden aides are getting jobs in the White House, report says

    How Do We Regain Trust in the FBI?
    We don't regain trust in the Feebs. We disband the organization and keep a close eye on the organizations that absorb its legitimate tasking.
    [AMERICANTHINKER] Newsmax released an article this week that gives voice to further distrust of America’s once-premiere law enforcement agency. The column was based on a series of questions and concerns presented by Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) regarding the still murky details around the January 6th storming of the Winter Palace Capitol building. Two questions lobbed at the FBI
    ...Formerly one of the world's premier criminal investigation organizations, something for a nation to be proud of. Now it's a political arm of the Deep State oligarchy that is willing to trump up charges, suppress evidence, or take out insurance policies come election time...
    are both haunting and disheartening:

    "What did the FBI know? And when did they know it?"

    The fact that the agency responsible for investigating the lawlessness of that date is itself under scrutiny is alarming. Regardless of how one feels about Americans -- patriots or paid agitators -- entering the Capitol building illegally is not germane to the questions surrounding the supposedly objective pursuit of justice by sworn law enforcement officers. Gaetz’s most damning volley came when he suggested the FBI is no longer acting under the auspices of their original mission and has taken the dubious position of engaging in political policing. If remotely true, it would seem to represent the final nail in the coffin for any chance at repairing the integrity of a federal investigative agency.

    And that sentiment is not solely the domain of the congressman from Florida. A Pew Research study released last month demonstrated a sharp decline in trust in the government from a high of seventy-seven percent in 1964 to a low that has remained under twenty-five percent since 2007. If three-quarters of Americans have spent the last fourteen years distrusting the government on the lam, what does that say about the agencies entrusted with justice and public safety? Former FBI Director JamesThe spine of the FBI is the rule of law Comey
    The disgraced, except in his own mind, former head of the FBI...
    attempted to lay the mistrust at President Trump’s doorstep. Perhaps, Slim Jim should have waited for the Pew Research findings before running his mouth again. The data shows the Truth Train left the station ten years before Forty-Five took office.

    Some Suggestions
    Establish a CLEAR Code of Conduct.

    Establish a Internal Affairs Special Prosecutor dept. that rotates the director position every 3 years (between national elections) with a Victim Civil Right to review.

    Minimum 10 year sentencing for any violations.

    100% adherence to US LAW.

    ZERO POLITICAL AGENDA based Investigations.

    Victims to be awarded $1M tax free per False charge filed and or arrest made using illegally obtain items or planted items. Congress NOT to setup a SPECIAL OPPS Award fund. Award to come from that years FBI Fiscal Year Budgeted funds.

    It's not just the bureau. It's also all those federal laws that Congress thinks we need to be saddled with. See - FBI warning on the start of any video you purchase. When you have too many jobs and too few assets, the management gets to pick and choose what they're going to spend their time doing and not doing. Can you say rogue?

    Justice Department domestic terror document could ensnare Biden critics
    [FOXNEWS] A Justice Department dossier called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism" was released this week with much fanfare by Attorney General Merrick B. Garland, but one political scientist warns the actual text proves even the most casual critic of the Biden administration
    ...knaves, footpads, and adjusters employed by the Biden Crime Family. They leave a trail of havoc everywhere they turn their attention, be it the nation's borders, the Keystone XL Pipeline, or epidemics, sometimes on purpose, most times through sheer arrogant ineptitude. They learnt this stuff in college, you know...
    could be ensnared in its definition, and therefore face punishment.

    On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Nicholas Giordano — whom host Tucker Carlson described as a government document expert — and who is also a professor at Suffolk Community College in Selden, N.Y., warned that Garland's document is "one of the most concerning" he has ever studied.

    "When you look at it, it is clear the [legal] analysts in the field didn't write this document, it was the political appointees trying to push an agenda. They list three factors to drive domestic terrorism: the first is racism," he said.

    Extrapolating from the fact the term "racism" is never formally defined in the document outside of the idea of White supremacy, Giordano noted that the Biden administration and its political allies include people who believe racism is "inherent" from birth.

    "The question then is, are we born 'domestic terrorists'" under this new agenda, Giordano questioned.

    Another tenet of what the document describes as "domestic terrorism" is "anti-government sentiment."

    Illinois governor signs law expanding curbside voting, permanent vote by mail
    [THEHILL] Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker signed a law on Thursday expanding curbside voting and establishing permanent vote by mail.

    Senate Bill 825 lays out procedures for election authorities to establish curbside voting during early voting or on Election Day. The measure also establishes permanent voting lists that voters can choose to opt-in or opt-out of at any time.

    The bill also directs authorities to establish central polling places where "all voters in its jurisdiction are allowed to vote on election day ... regardless of the precinct in which they are registered," according to its text.

    The measure also allows sheriffs to establish temporary polling locations at county jails. These sites would be available to people who live in the county and are in jug, but have not been convicted of the offense for which they are detained.

    Pritzker’s office said that the practice is already in place in Cook County.

    The legislation also establishes June 28, 2022, as the new date of the state's primary election.

    The measure passed the Illinois general assembly on May 31, according to records on its website.

    Pritzker said on Twitter "with attacks on voting rights on the rise in states across the nation, Illinois is proud to stand up for a strong, secure and accessible democracy."

    "The legislation I'm signing today further expands access to the ballot box — ensuring all Illinoisans’ voices are heard."

    Pennsylvania poised to begin Arizona-style election audit with subpoena power
    [WASHINGTONEXAMINER] Pennsylvania appears to be on the precipice of initiating an Arizona-style audit of the 2020 election.State Sen. David Argall, who heads a committee that oversees elections, told local news outlets he favors a forensic audit of the contest that state and federal officials insist was secure.

    The Republican, under pressure by former President Donald Trump
    ...Oh, noze! Not him!...
    to take action, told the Capital-Star the audit is now a "very real possibility." The report said he is considering subpoenas for ballot information and which jurisdictions to send them.

    "There are a lot of things under consideration right now, and I told them to check back in a week or two, and we hope to have some more detail," he told the outlet after meeting with audit-supporting activists on Thursday.

    last year in which post-election audits showed no widespread fraud.

    But after dozens of lawsuits with election fraud allegations and voting irregularities were rejected by courts around the country, the audit in Maricopa County, commissioned by the GOP-led Arizona Senate, has become a beacon of hope for Trump and his supporters who herald the legislature-backed review as a model for other states to replicate.

    Ethics experts are concerned that the children of top Biden aides are getting jobs in the White House, report says
    [Insider] Several children and relatives of President Joe Biden's top aides have secured jobs in the White House, according to The Washington Post.

    At least five children of Biden's senior staff are now working in the administration, the paper reported.

    Experts on ethics and diversity have expressed concern that this is a continuation of the sort of nepotism seen in former President Donald Trump's White House, they told the Post.

    "While it may not be as bad as appointing your son or daughter to a top government post as Trump did with Jared and Ivanka, it is still bad," said Walter Shaub, who served as director of the Office of Government Ethics from 2013-2017.  "'Not as bad as Trump' cannot be the new standard."

    On Monday, the son of a trusted Biden counselor was hired to a junior-level position. J.J Richetti, a 2020 college graduate and the son of Steve Ricchetti, was hired as a special assistant in the Office of Legislative Affairs, the Post reported.

    Richhetti's two other children also have jobs in the administration.

    Daniel Ricchetti, the eldest child of the veteran White House staffer, is a senior adviser in the office of the undersecretary of state for arms control and international security. Shannon Ricchetti, the eldest daughter, works as the deputy associate director of the office of the White House social secretary.

    Kayleigh McEnany slams Don Lemon's 'insidious' criticism of parents against CRT: 'It's tearing us apart'
    [FOXNEWS] "Outnumbered" co-host Kayleigh McEnany slammed CNN
    ...the organization formerly known as the Cable News Network. Now who knows what it might stand for...
    anchor Don Lemon Friday over his "insidious" criticism of parents who oppose the teaching of 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...
    in schools.

    McEnany, responding to Lemon's Thursday claim that parents who were against teaching critical race theory were showing their "privilege," defended the parents, arguing that regardless of race, they may not want their children being taught that they're either oppressed because they are Black or an oppressor because they are White.

    CNN host Don Lemon blasted for calling out 'privilege' of critical race theory criticsVideo
    Said the genius who speculated a black hole swallowed an Indonesian jetliner
    "You have to be privileged and you don’t want your pleasant life interrupted if you're opposed to critical race theory. No, Don!" McEnany said.

    "Maybe you're a father like Ty Smith who doesn’t want your little son or daughter to be taught that they are oppressed, that they will have to navigate a systemically racist country that is at its core rotten," she added, referring to the Black Illinois father who was seen in a viral video arguing against the teaching of critical race theory.

    She argued that a White father or mother might also disapprove of their child being taught that they are an oppressor because they're white.

    "And when it comes to painting with a broad brush, I'm sick of Don Lemon telling me who is opposed to critical race theory and who isn't. I'm sick of him telling me that Trump voters are rude ... Get rid of that broad brush, Don, because it’s not working for you, and it's insidious, and it's tearing us apart," McEnany said.

    White House Says Biden A No To Senate's Gas Tax-Inflation Gimmick For Infrastructure, Meeting Monday
    [JustTheNews] Biden has made clear his opposition to raising taxes on people making less than $400,000 a year.

    The White House made clear Friday that President Biden is opposed to tying the federal gasoline tax to inflation to help pay for a $579 billion infrastructure package – dashing a bipartisan Senate plan on how to pay for the measure but keeping his campaign promise of no tax increases on most Americans.

    The gas tax increase was part of the group’s early package, which called new spending on roads, bridges, rail and public transit.

    The plan by the bipartisan group of 21 senators is one a several in Washington including House Democrats’ $1.9 trillion package.

    "The president has been clear throughout these negotiations: He is adamantly opposed to raising taxes on people making less than $400,000 a year," White House spokesman Andrew Bates said Friday. "After the extraordinarily hard times that ordinary Americans endured in 2020 – job losses, shrinking incomes, squeezed budgets – he is simply not going to allow Congress to raise taxes on those who suffered the most."

    The federal gas tax is now at 18.4 cents a gallon and has not increased since 1993. It helps pay for highways and mass transit programs around the country, according to the Associated Press.

    Congress has traditionally relied on the user-pay principle to pay for road and bridge work, use as tolls, but is increasingly relying on general funds to accomplish that task.

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says fellow Democrats don’t believe the $579 billion package does enough on such concerns as climate and priorities like paid family leave.

    As a result, he is expected to lead his party on two tracks that include a reconciliation package going beyond what’s in the small, bipartisan plan.

    Leaders of the group are expected to meet Monday with Biden on the matter, the wire service also reports.
