[Breaking911] Former Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer was attacked in Oakland’s Jack London Square Monday. The incident happened in the 300 block of 3rd Street.
“Earlier today former Senator Barbara Boxer was assaulted in the Jack London Square neighborhood of Oakland,” her representative wrote in a Tweet. “The assailant pushed her in the back, stole her cell phone and jumped in a waiting car. She is thankful that she was not seriously injured.”
The suspect remains at large. The Oakland Police Department is offering a reward of up to $2,000 leading for an arrest in this case.
Did she demand the mugger refer to her as "Senator" as she did to that general during a hearing* a few years ago?
* General referred to her as ma'am and she came back with the "call me Senator" shtick. I was always disappointed that he didn't come back with "in the military "ma'am" is always a term of respect...."Senator" not so much."
[FoxNews] President Biden called a reporter a "pain in the neck" Monday in the Oval Office for asking him a question that was off his preferred topic of Iraq.
Sitting in the Oval Office with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi, Biden smiled as NBC's Kelly O'Donnell asked him to comment on Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough's announcement that front-line VA workers would be required to get a coronavirus vaccine.
"You are such a pain in the neck, but I’m going to answer your question because we’ve known each other for so long," he said. "It has nothing to do with Iraq … I'll answer your question. Yes, Veteran Affairs is going to, in fact, require that all doctors working in their facilities are going to have to be vaccinated."
[Breitbart] On Monday morning, Border Patrol agents were once again met by hundreds of migrants walking to the fence after entering the United States illegally. The groups, mostly Haitian, numbered more than 300 in the early daylight hours. Mixed in were family units with small children and a significant number of single adults.
As the groups walked from the border, agents struggled to get basic biographic information and prepare the hundreds to be transported to a nearby station for further processing. As the morning progressed, buses and vans were fully loaded. Several were driven by agents who would otherwise be out on patrol. Other buses were driven by contract detention and transportation officers.
As the migrants were being processed for transportation and departure, more groups came from the river. Aircraft from the Texas Highway Patrol could be seen circling as agents received the migrants from the fence gate. The pace contributes to the overcrowding in most area Border Patrol facilities.
In the last week, nearly 2,000 migrants were apprehended at this spot near Del Rio, according to a source within CBP. The source says the influx is becoming increasingly harder to handle and worries that many of the stations in the vicinity do not have enough agents to process migrants before the next group arrives hours later.
In June, the Del Rio Sector apprehended more than 30,000 migrants. This fiscal year to date, more than 149,000 migrants were apprehended in the sector.
The typically Haitian, Venezuelan, and Cuban groups will be released once fully processed by Border Patrol.
Have Democratic governor Tim Walz and his DFL colleagues in the legislature turned into "oppressors"? Or is state representative John Thompson just desperate to escape the consequences of his own actions and law-enforcement record?
...Yesterday, Thompson refused to resign after several arrests for domestic abuse emerged after a traffic stop that revealed Thompson using a Wisconsin drivers license. Not only did he and his wife dispute whether any domestic abuse occurred, Thompson suggested that he was being oppressed by demands for his resignation:
Rep. John Thompson said Monday that he will not resign amid reports of previous domestic abuse allegations that his wife and a group of supporters denied in a news conference outside the State Capitol.
"If you’re not careful, the oppressor will have you believe that they’re the ones being oppressed," said Thompson, DFL-St. Paul. "One of the greatest quotes I’ve ever heard in my life is your life begins to end when you remain silent about things that matter the most. I will not remain silent. I will not be resigning."
What an idiot! Just announce that you've converted to Islam, and see all accusations of domestic abuse go away.
[Free Beacon] A Michigan Democratic state representative spent $221 in campaign funds at a strip club, according to the lawmaker's financial disclosures.
Rep. Jewell Jones's latest quarterly disclosures list a March "constituent meeting" at the Pantheion Club in Dearborn, Mich. The venue is a topless dancing club and claims to be "the oldest and most established gentlemens [sic] club in Michigan."
The listed purpose for the strip club expense described the meeting as a discussion of "potential economic projects" in Inkster, Mich., which Jones represents in the state house.
Jones, who sits on the legislature's regulatory reform committee, has spent more than $6,400 of his campaign's funds this year at restaurants for ostensibly work-related meetings. One expenditure listed in the disclosures describes a March "dinner meeting with other legislators" at a restaurant in Las Vegas where Jones spent nearly $700.
