Israeli actress Gal Gadot issues statement calling for peace and anti-Israel activists melt down

Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress best known for portraying “Wonder Woman” on the big screen, issued a statement calling for peace and pro-Palestinians critics melted down in response.

Gadot posted a short statement to her Twitter account on Wednesday after several days of lethal violence in her home country.

My heart breaks,” wrote Gadot.

“My country is at war. I worry for my family, my friends. I worry for my people. This is a vicious cycle that has been going on for far too long. Israel deserves to lives as a free and safe nation, our neighbors deserve the same,” she added.

“I pray for the victims and their families, I pray for this unimaginable hostility to end, I pray for our leaders to find the solution so we could live side by side in peace,” Gadot continued.

“I pray for better days,” she concluded.

‘Gal gadot is an ugly zionist…’

Some supporters of the Palestinian cause replied with vicious vitriol to Gadot’s call for peace.

“Gal gadot is an ugly zionist who can’t act and is beyond pathetic. time and time again she shows yall that she sides with the ethnic cleansing of palestinians and yall act brand new everytime. f*** that woman,” responded one Twitter user.

“I’m glad Gal Gadot said what she said. People should see how Israelis have been laundering the genocide of Palestinians under a disingenuous call for the end of a conflict that has never existed, it’s always been an extermination campaign,” claimed activist Asheya Siddiqi.

“Just another reminder that Gal Gadot is a Zionist and has long supported the ethnic cleansing and violence towards Palestinians,” said another critic.

“Gal Gadot is wrong. Israel is not at ‘war’ with Palestine. Israel is butchering Palestine. Again,” responded UK musician James Kennedy.

“I wish gal gadot a very shut the f*** up,” read another tweet.

Other,s like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), praised Gadot.

Blm shirts at grade school Boys wear blm shirts Grade school blm shirts Intelwars Ok blm shirts at school Oklahoma blm shirts

Oklahoma mom says her boys were punished for wearing Black Lives Matter shirts to grade school

A mom of two grade school boys in Oklahoma is crying foul after they were punished for wearing shirts to school that supported the Black Lives Matter movement.

Jordan Herbert angrily denounced Charles Evans Elementary and their principal in a Facebook post from April.

“So my 8 yr old who attends Charles Evans elementary wore his Black Lives Matter shirt on friday. He was told to turn his shirt inside out by (Mrs. Brunk) the principal of the school. I asked the woman this morning to show me in the school hand book where the dress code says he’s not aloud to wear it,” read the post.

Herbert says that she was told politics weren’t allowed at the school.

“My son is 8 he has no idea about politics and wearing a Black Lives Matter shirts has NOTHIN to do with politics. He’s simply sayin his life matters. Oh yea he’s the 2nd kid at Charles evans to get made to turn his shirt inside out. Y’all will hear my mouth until something is done about this here BS,” she added.

True to her word, she and a handful of protesters demonstrated outside the school in Ardmore.

In a later post on Thursday, she claimed that her younger son wore the same shirt to school without incident.

“They were called out on their bulls*** and now it’s ok for him to wear it! His shirt bothered them. It was never a distraction until they made it one,” Herbert claimed.

Ardmore Superintendent Kim Holland explained the school policy to KXII-TV.

“I understand what she is saying, but school is not the place to have all that, y’know political back and forth and upheaval. We’re trying to teach kids things like reading and writing.” said Holland.

“We’re trying to be more neutral in the school and be advocates for all of our children in what they need,” she added.

Holland also told USA Today that the same policy would have applied if a student wore a “Make America Great Again” hat to school or a pro-Trump shirt.

Aoc hates israel Aoc vs joe biden Biden israel has a right Intelwars Israel attacks Israel has a right Israel Palestine

Ocasio-Cortez lashes out at Joe Biden for declaring that Israel has a right to protect itself from rocket attacks

President Joe Biden issued a statement declaring that Israel had a right to defend itself from rocket attacks and many on the left immediately recoiled in horror, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

Israel has been bombarded by dozens of rocket missile attacks for several days while violence from supporters of the Palestinian cause has erupted against Jews in several Israeli cities.

On Wednesday, Biden defended Israel after speaking via telephone with the nation’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Israel has the right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory,” Biden said to reporters.

“My hope is that we’ll see this coming to a conclusion sooner than later,” he added.

That support for Israel was reflected in the White House official readout of the call with Netanyahu which said that Biden reiterated his “unwavering support for Israel’s security and for Israel’s legitimate right to defend itself and its people, while protecting civilians.”

Ocasio-Cortez immediately excoriated Biden for the statement.

“Blanket statements like these w/ little context or acknowledgement of what precipitated this cycle of violence – namely, the expulsions of Palestinians and attacks on Al Aqsa – dehumanize Palestinians & imply the US will look the other way at human rights violations. It’s wrong,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet.

“By only stepping in to name Hamas’ actions – which are condemnable – & refusing to acknowledge the rights of Palestinians, Biden reinforces the false idea that Palestinians instigated this cycle of violence,” she added.

“This is not neutral language,” she concluded. “It takes a side – the side of occupation.”

Others on the left condemned Biden for voicing support for Israel.

“What a shameful, terrible statement,” said columnist Wajahat Ali. “Biden could have condemned Hamas, attacks on civilians, and affirmed Israel’s right to exist, and also condemned Israel for forced evictions, escalating tensions at Al Aqsa, Gaza strikes, the killing of Palestinian children, and, you know, continuing illegal settlements.”

Ocasio-Cortez used similar language to berate New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang into acquiescing to her demands after he issued a tweet of support for Israel.

At last count, at least 65 people in the Gaza Strip had died from the latest conflict, while about 6 had died in Israel, according to Reuters.

Here’s Biden’s comments about Israel:

Andrew yang caves on israel Andrew yang vs terrorists Andrew yang vs the left Hamas attacks on israel Intelwars Israel Palestine

Andrew Yang caves to leftist outrage over his tweet condemning Hamas terrorists

New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang appeared to apologize for a tweet condemning the terrorist attacks by Hamas militants on Israel after public outrage by the left and some of his own supporters.

“I’m standing with the people of Israel who are coming under bombardment attacks, and condemn the Hamas terrorists,” said Yang in a tweet on Monday.

Yang, who is one of the frontrunners in the mayoral race, was harangued by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) about the tweet on Tuesday but by Wednesday he acquiesced and cited many other detractors in his apology.

“I spoke to a group of volunteers for the campaign yesterday, some of whom have been with me for years. Many of them were upset with my recent tweet expressing solidarity with the people of Israel in conjunction with the violence in the region this week that has claimed the lives of innocents and children on both sides,” said Yang in the lengthy statement posted to Twitter.

“They felt that my tweet was overly simplistic in my treatment of a conflict that has a long and complex history full of tragedies. And they felt it failed to acknowledge the pain and suffering on both sides. They were, of course, correct,” he continued.

“I mourn for every Palestinian life taken before its time as I do for every Israeli,” he continued. “Suffering and pain and violence and death suffered by anyone hurts us all. All people want to be able to live in peace. We all ways that for ourselves and our children.”

Despite the clarification by Yang, many of his detractors were still unhappy that he did not condemn Israel in his new statement.

“The most telling part of @AndrewYang’s erasure of Palestinian human rights, is he even used his apology to to say he’s choosing sides. And that side is Israel,” responded one critic on Twitter.

Yang wasn’t the only mayoral candidate to have public relations troubles this week. Two candidates were mocked and ridiculed after they severely underestimated the cost of housing in NYC during a candidate interview.

Housing cost ignorance Housing cost in brooklyn Intelwars Nyc candidates dragged Nyc candidates housing Nyc mayoral candidates

Two NYC mayoral candidates go viral after displaying profound ignorance of housing values; one is a former Obama admin member

Two mayoral candidates in New York City went viral after displaying a profound ignorance of the skyrocketing housing costs in the city they want to run.

The candidates were asked in an interview with The New York Times’s editorial board to estimate the average home price in Brooklyn and they failed spectacularly.

Shaun Donovan guessed that the average home or apartment would cost “around $100,000.”

Critics noted that he had previously worked as the Housing and Urban Development secretary and budget director under former President Obama, and should be much more knowledgable about average home prices.

Investment banker and former Citigroup executive Ray McGuire didn’t fare much better. He guessed “somewhere in the $80,000 to $90,000 range, if not higher.”

Both of those guesses are a fraction of the answer, which is about $900,000.

While they failed in answering that elementary question about the city they want to run, they were very successful in firing up their critics on social media.

“I don’t know how *anyone* could think this, let alone people running for mayor of New York City,” replied journalist McKay Coppins.

“How can you fix the city’s housing crisis if you’re this oblivious?” responded one resident.

“Just like fully living on another planet and running for mayor,” responded transgender rights activist Chase Strangio.

“I mean, the other night I paid $16 in Brooklyn for a pre-mixed cocktail that tasted like cough syrup so I’m pretty sure $100K won’t even buy you a parking spot,” quipped editor Lydia Polgreen.

“Man if you can’t estimate within 800,000 DOLLARS the median sale price of a home in your town, not only should you be disqualified from running that town, i’m not entirely convinced you should even be allowed to reside in it,” replied writer Albert Burneko.

Donovan later claimed that he misunderstood the question and was guessing the average assessed value of a home in Brooklyn.

Entrepreneur and former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, who touts himself as the “math guy,” thought about the question a while and hit the average exactly when he guessed.

Carjacking tickets Carjacking veteran tickets Carjacking washington dc Intelwars Tickets for carjacking victims Washington dc carjacking

Vietnam veteran was carjacked by armed criminals. Then he was told to pay $2000 in tickets the carjackers racked up in his car.

A 73-year-old Vietnam veteran was first victimized by armed carjackers and then victimized by Washington D.C. officials who demanded he pay the tickets the criminals racked up in his stolen car.

Doug Nelson had finished his late shift at the U.S.Postal Office and arrived home just after midnight when he was accosted by a criminal who put a gun to his head and demanded his car.

“As I was exiting the vehicle, this guy came up with the pistol and said ‘Give me the car. You know, what’s happening. Give me a car,'” said Doug to WJLA-TV.

They thought their troubles were over when the car was returned, but they were just beginning.

Doug and his wife Nancy Nelson received notice after notice about the fines from traffic violations the carjackers committed in the stolen car.

“Over $2,000 worth of fines. Yes. Over $2,000 worth of fines,” said Nancy Nelson.

The Nelsons thought they would just notify the District of Columbia that the infractions were made while the car had been stolen and they would dismiss the charges. That is not what happened.

“It came back saying, ‘You owe,'” said Nancy.

The Nelsons tried to clear the issue up personally at numerous government offices but they got the bureaucratic runaround. In the meantime, they were not allowed to drive their vehicle that they depended on to get to work and run their daily errands.

This lasted six months.

“This is not helping me at all. I’m in tears about all of this stuff because we owe over $2,000 for tickets that are not even our fault,” said Nancy.

Before the Nelsons were able to make use of one last option, they would need to pay the fines that have been applied during the time they sought to dismiss the tickets. They would need more than $5,000 to do that.

The 7News I-Team reported that D.C. officials would not respond to their requests for two weeks while they sought a way to resolve the issue. Eventually they released a statement saying the tickets had been dismissed.

DC DMV had been communicating with Mr. Nelson since he began the adjudication process related to the six citations issued on November 2, 2020. The initial police incident submitted as part of that process was incomplete and failed to establish that the vehicle was stolen when the citations were issued. Subsequently, DC DMV received a more complete incident report with additional details related to the carjacking incident involving Mr. Nelson’s vehicle. As a result, DC DMV Adjudication Services has dismissed the six tickets, as well as the related fines and penalties.

Despite the concession reported to the news station, the Nelsons said that they had never been notified by D.C. officials that the tickets and fines had been dismissed. They also disputed that the DMV had been communicating with them during all that time.

Democrats have made the statehood of Washington D.C. a major issue in their political platform.

Andrew Yang condemns Hamas terrorists; AOC denounces him as ‘utterly shameful’

New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang condemned Hamas terrorists for attacking Israel and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called him “utterly shameful” in response.

Yang, an entrepreneur and former presidential candidate, tweeted his support for the Israeli people “who are coming under bombardment attacks” on Monday.

“The people of NYC will always stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel who face down terrorism and persevere,” he added.

One person of NYC that did not always stand with Israel was Ocasio-Cortez who was offended that Yang would offer his support to Israelis while he was scheduled to hand out groceries to Muslims celebrating the end of Ramadan, their religious season.

“Utterly shameful for Yang to try to show up to an Eid event after sending out a chest-thumping statement of support for a strike killing 9 children, especially after his silence as Al-Aqsa was attacked,” she tweeted on Tuesday.

Yang told reporters that the organizers of the event asked him to cancel his appearance.

Hamas fired numerous rockets into Israel from the Gaza Strip after violence erupted between Palestinian protesters and police in Jerusalem. The Israelis retaliated with airstrikes on military targets in the Gaza. Palestinians have reported that as many as 20 people died in the airstrikes, including some children.

On Tuesday violence spilled into the streets of several Israeli cities where Palestinians and their supporters attacked Jews, their homes and their businesses. The mayor of the town of Lod said the attacks were similar of those on Kristallnacht, when Jews were attacked in Nazi Germany.

Skirmishes between the supporters of Israel and those of the Palestinian cause erupted in New York City as well.

Aave racism African american vernacular english Intelwars Michael che aave Michael che gen z hospital Saturday night live racist sketch Snl gen z hospital

‘SNL’ sketch blasted for racist use of ‘African American Vernacular English.’ The black writer of the sketch is stunned.

A sketch on “Saturday Night Live” was accused of offensive cultural appropriation in their use of “African American Vernacular English,” and the writer of the scene admitted he’d never heard of the term.

SNL was already facing criticism over their decision to ask Tesla CEO Elon Musk to host their show, but they received even more ire over their “Gen Z Hospital” sketch.

The sketch used many of the slang terms and phrases that Gen Z is known for, but some of those are also identified as included in African American Vernacular English, or AAVE.

“This Gen Z hospital skit on SNL is so stupid. I’m so tired of nonblack people throwing random AAVE terms in their sentences and calling that horse s*** ‘Gen Z language’,” said one user on Twitter.

“The appropriation of AAVE by white people is gross, the mislabeling of AAVE as a “Gen Z phenomenon” is also gross, but on top of that, the SNL skit reads like they just pulled a list of terms from UrbanDictionary and sprinkled them in, not caring that AAVE has a defined grammar!” tweeted another offended viewer.

“The primarily white writers of SNL don’t even know that Gen Z/Tik-Tok language is hugely composed of appropriated & badly-used AAVE. Their target was specifically the non-Black people badly using AAVE,” said another.

Others, even more confusingly, said the sketch did not use AAVE, but was still racist:

“That snl skit was boring and terrible and certainly racist. but it was not aave,” said another user.

Sketch writer responds

The criticism appeared to be a surprise to the writer of the sketch, comedian Michael Che, who is a black man.

“I’ve been reading about how my ‘gen z’ sketch was misappropriating AAVE,” he said in a post on Instagram.

“And I was stunned because what the f–k is ‘AAVE’? I had to look it up,” he continued. “Turns out it’s an acronym for ‘African American Vernacular English.’ You know, AAVE! That ol’ saying that actual Black people use in conversation all the time…”

He went on to admit the sketch bombed, and added, “I meant no offense to the ‘AAVE’ community. I love AAVE. AAVE to the moon.”

SNL is hardly the first victim of the woke mob for using AAVE while trying to mock Gen Z. YouTube star and comedian Colleen Ballinger apologized profusely in April after using the same slang in a tweet that she later deleted.

“I feel so stupid. I was trying to sound like an awkward mom who uses gen z slang,” responded Ballinger. “I am so sorry.”

Chicago bears player Intelwars Nfl player death NFL players Tarik cohen brother dead Tyrell cohen brother electrocuted

Twin brother of Bears running back Tarik Cohen found electrocuted after running from car crash, police say

The twin brother of a Chicago Bears running back was found dead by electrocution and authorities said that he was fleeing from the scene of a car accident before his death.

Tarik Cohen, 25, of the Chicago Bears had tweeted asking for the public’s help in finding his missing brother, Tyrell Cohen, on Saturday.

“Could be on foot in the [woods] around 540 and six forks,” Tarik said in the tweet he later deleted. “Possibly injured!”

A day later his brother’s body was discovered by a worker at an electrical substation in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Law enforcement officials said that it appeared that he was trying to climb electrical equipment when he was electrocuted. He had run away from the one-car accident around 2 a.m. Saturday and into the substation.

The Chicago Bears issued a statement about the incident Monday.

“We are heartbroken to learn of the death of Tarik Cohen’s twin brother, Tyrell,” the statement read. “Our immediate thoughts and prayers go out to Tarik, his mother, Tilwanda, and the rest of their family and loved ones. On behalf of the entire Bears family, we extend our most heartfelt sympathies to all who mourn his loss.”

On Monday, Tarik Cohen posted a statement via his Twitter account to fans about the death of his brother.

“While we appreciate the condolences thoughts and prayers, we ask that you respect our privacy during this time. Let us grieve. Please and thanks. Long live Me,” he tweeted.

“I lost my brother , my twin, myself . What a great man he was . I’m glad i got to express just how much i love him while he was here,” he added in a second tweet. “God truly calls home the best and most worthy. I’ll just miss him forever.”

Tyrell Cohen leaves behind a longtime girlfriend and two daughters, 3 and 7 years old.

Here’s more about the tragic death:

Disney mandalorian emmys Gina carano emmy disney Gina carano for emmy Gina carano vs disney Intelwars Liberal twitter reaction Mandalorian emmys

Actress Gina Carano included in Disney’s campaign for Emmy consideration and liberals are furious

Disney included Gina Carano in their push for Emmy consideration despite their controversial firing of the conservative actress and many liberals online were outraged.

Carano was unceremoniously fired in February from the very popular show, “The Mandalorian,” on Disney Plus after a campaign from many on the left over her social media posts. Her critics pounced after Carano suggested in an Instagram post that conservatives were being censored in a similar fashion to the Jews in Nazi Germany.

A poster from Disney shows Carano listed under the best supporting actress category in their campaign for the show to be considered for the Emmys.

Some on the left took to Twitter to express their outrage and disbelief that Disney would include Carano.

“Giving Gina Carano an award for best actress of any kind is like giving a nobel peace prize to Adolf Hitler. It’s absolutely ridiculous lol,” responded one critic on Twitter.

“Even if @ginacarano wasn’t a racist and hypocritical bigot, her performance wasn’t nearly Emmy-worthy,” said another.

“Putting all of Gina Carano’s politics aside, her character has like 15 lines of dialogue across two seasons. An Emmy for WHAT??” tweeted writer Ryan Broderick.

“Um…. we got more acting emotion from the Mandalorian and he was in a helmet 90% of the time. He’s also not a racist a** hole,” replied another critic.

“And the Emmy for worst supporting actress goes to… Gina Carano!” joked another social media user.

After being fired from Disney, Carano announced that she had made a deal to develop and produce her own movie.

“I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob,” she said. “I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”

‘Be grateful’: Actor Jon Lovitz chastises ‘SNL’ cast members triggered by Elon Musk hosting

Iconic actor and comedian Jon Lovitz chastised cast members on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” for grousing over the invitation to Tesla CEO Elon Musk to host the show.

Lovitz, who is a former “Saturday Night Live” member, offered muted criticism but followed it up by contrasting the attitude of modern actors with that of his generation.

“For everyone @nbcsnl who isn’t sure about the host… Don’t forget where you were before you got the show. We are all extraordinarily lucky to have been on it,” Lovitz said.

“Be grateful and enjoy your time on SNL,” he continued. “Because nothing lasts forever.”

Cast members and writers of the longtime sketch comedy show bristled when the Tesla CEO was announced as a guest host. Others criticized them for being triggered and outraged against Musk without any clear or consistent reasoning on why he’s so controversial.

Lovitz continued his criticism after some on Twitter disagreed with him.

“I didn’t stay. I didn’t leave. I did my job that I was hired to do. I was paid to be on the show. When you get hired for a job, you show up and do it,” said Lovitz.

“This concept apparently is foreign to a lot of people these days. That’s what owners of businesses tell me,” he added.

SNL cast member Pete Davidson voiced confusion at the reaction from some of his colleagues.

“I don’t know why people are freaking out,” Davidson said Wednesday. “They’re like, ‘Oh, I can’t believe that Elon Musk is hosting!’ And I’m like, ‘The guy that makes the earth better kinda and makes cool things and sends people to Mars?'”

Lovitz was a member on SNL from 1985 to 1990 and later starred in various movies as well as his own short-lived animated show, “The Critic.”

The cast members who voiced opposition to Musk were reportedly given a “safe space” to avoid participating on Saturday’s show. Musk noted in his monologue that he made history on the show for being the first host with Asperger’s syndrome.

“Or at least the first to admit it,” he added.

Here’s Elon Musk’s opening monologue on SNL:

Golden globes race sex scandal Hfpa sex racist scandal Hollywood foreign press association Intelwars Nbc cancels golden globes Scarlett johannson vs golden globes Tom cruise vs golden globes

Golden Globes canceled on NBC over lack of diversity. Tom Cruise sends back his awards in protest.

The group that organizes the annual Golden Globes awards was literally canceled by NBC over a campaign demanding more diversity among its voting members.

Critics claim that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has no black voting members and cite other accusations of racial and sexual discrimination against the organization.

NBC said in a statement Monday that the awards ceremony would not be aired in 2022 if the HFPA refused to take steps to address the controversy.

“We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right,” said a NBC spokesperson.

“As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes,” the statement read. “Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.”

The decision from NBC came after other media companies similarly criticizing the HFPA. Netflix and Amazon Studios have both said they will not work with HFPA over the concerns.

Actors have also joined the campaign.

Tom Cruise reportedly sent his three awards from the Golden Globes back to the offices of the HFPA on Monday. He won a best actor award for “Jerry McGuire,” another best actor award for “Born on the Fourth of July,” and a third for best supporting actor for his role in “Magnolia.”

Scarlett Johansson also criticized the group and said that she has refused to participate in HFPA news conferences over the behavior of some of their members.

“As an actor promoting a film, one is expected to participate in awards season by attending press conferences as well as awards shows,” the actress explained.

“In the past, this has often meant facing sexist questions and remarks by certain HFPA members that bordered on sexual harassment,” Johansson said. “It is the exact reason why I, for many years, refused to participate in their conferences.”

Some celebrities even jabbed at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association during the presentation of the 78th Golden Globes in March.

Although the HFPA has said the group will take steps to make its membership more reflective of global demographics, critics say it is stalling on those reforms.

“We understand that we need to bring in Black members as well as members from other underrepresented backgrounds, and we will immediately work to implement an action plan to achieve these goals as soon as possible,” said the HFPA in February.

For many of the group’s critics, the promise was not enough.

“Unless there is necessary fundamental reform within the organization,” Johansson said. “I believe it is time that we take a step back from the HFPA and focus on the importance and strength of unity within our unions and the industry as a whole.”

Man suspected of raping woman in Kroger bathroom chased down and held at gunpoint by marine veteran

A Marine veteran is being hailed as a hero after he chased down a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman at a Kroger bathroom.

The startling incident unfolded at the grocery store in Savannah, Georgia, on April 27.

Shoppers at the Kroger grocery store heard a woman screaming from the bathroom that she was being assaulted. A man allegedly ran out of the bathroom and tried to flee the scene. That’s when Marine veteran Damian Austin jumped into action.

“It made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck because it wasn’t a normal yell,” Austin
told KFOR.

He said there were a few moments of confusion in the store.

“A lady behind me just said ‘he raped that girl in the bathroom,’ and once she said that there was nothing else for me to do besides go out the door after him,” he explained.

Austin chased the man into the back of the nearby Ace Hardware store where he held him at gunpoint.

“I told him to put his hands in the air. He complied and put them up,” Austin recalled. “I told him to get on the ground, and he tried to say something, and I said: ‘Don’t say a word.'”

The moment was caught on surveillance video which was
obtained by KFOR.

Austin said a woman helped by bringing a pack of large zip ties to him from the store.

Police eventually arrested the suspect and identified him as 25-year-old Gregory Hathorne.

To show his appreciation for Austin’s bravery, the Ace Hardware store manager gave him a gift card with $100 on it.

Austin said he was just trying to make his neighborhood more safe.

“I immediately thought, ‘my wife shops here, I have friends whose wives shop here, my son works here,'” said Austin. “So it was just about not letting this person get away after he did what he did.”

Here’s a news report about the harrowing incident:

Biden lies about migrant minors Biden's unaccompanied minors Cuellar vs biden on minors Democrat cuellar vs biden Intelwars Unaccompanied children

Border Democrat accuses Biden of playing a ‘shell game’ to mislead the public on unaccompanied minors

Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas, a Democrat, accused the Biden administration of playing a “shell game” with the unaccompanied minors captured at the border in order to mislead the public.

Cuellar’s comments were included in a report about the migrant children from NBC Nightly News published Thursday.

“What they’re doing now is they’re moving the kids from the border patrol tents over to, next door, to the HHS facility,” said Cuellar to reporter Gabe Gutierrez.

“With all due respect, it’s all been a shell game,” he added.

NBC reported that the numbers reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Homeland Security corroborated Cuellar’s criticism.

According to those statistics, the number of unaccompanied migrant children in the custody of Border Patrol has plummeted to only 749 kids. But at the same time the number of those children in the custody of HHS has skyrocketed to 21,484.

While the Biden administration has denied that there’s any crisis at the border and President Biden has claimed that the increased numbers are simply expected seasonal spikes, the statistics tell a different story.

NBC reported that as many as 160,000 unaccompanied minors were expected to cross the border in 2021, a record number.

Local law enforcement officials say other crimes at the border are skyrocketing, including drug smuggling and human trafficking.

“The numbers have been historic,” said Lt. Christopher Olivarez with the Texas Department of Public Safety. “as far as illegal crossings and now, stash houses and criminal activity, so by far from previous years we are seeing a dramatic increase in those activities.”

Cuellar has previously spoken out against the more lax border policies of the Biden administration. In March he warned that criminals would use the comments made by Biden to encourage more illegal immigration.

“The bad guys know how to market this,” Cuellar said at the time.

Homeless echo park lake Homeless echo park trash Homeless feces urine california Homeless feces urine los angeles Intelwars Los angeles feces urine

Sanitation workers cleaned up 35 tons of garbage from homeless camp in Los Angeles, including 700 lbs of feces and urine

Los Angeles sanitation workers collected a massive amount of garbage after clearing out a homeless encampment, including an astounding amount of feces and urine.

City officials were highly criticized by homeless advocates when they decided to end the encampment around Echo Park Lake. Police issued a citywide tactical alert in March after violence broke out from protesters who were being agitated and encouraged by a local socialist organization.

On Friday, a spokesperson for the city’s Department of Recreation and Parks said that officials hoped to reopen the park by the end of May after cleaning the park and repairing the damage left behind.

According to the Los Angeles Times, sanitation workers collected 35 tons, or 70,000 pounds, of garbage.

That included 180 pounds of feces and 564 pounds of urine. Those amounts collected did not include that cleaned from portable or stationary restrooms.

They also collected 300 pounds of hazardous waste like gasoline, kerosene and cooking oil, and 30 pounds of drug paraphernalia including needles.

Workers cleared out more than 170 tents in the large encampment that angered many of the residents around the lake. In the weeks since they were cleared out, outreach workers helped more than 160 displaced homeless people to obtain temporary housing, including hotel rooms paid by the city.

Activists have accused the police of throwing away homeless people’s private property instead of collecting it.

The LAPD has reported that the crime rate in the area has plummeted so much that they are deploying police patrols to other higher crime areas.

“It is much quieter, less litter, trash, less public drinking and drugs,” said John Berry, a 14-year resident of Echo Park.

“We have noticed a decrease in the number of people coming into our front yard or that of our neighbors, and of people wandering around on the street looking high or otherwise erratic behavior,” said Darcy Harris, another longtime resident.

Real estate app Zillow calculated that the typical home value around Echo Park Lake was about $980,000. The park is known for the iconic swan paddle boats for rent.

Michelle Obama defends Black Lives Matter, says black people live in fear

Former first lady Michelle Obama defended Black Lives Matter by explaining that she and other black people live in fear while doing everyday tasks.

She made the comments to Gayle King of CBS News in an interview to be aired on Monday.

“We know that while we’re all breathing a sigh of relief over the verdict, there’s still work to be done,” said Obama.

“Many of us still live in fear as we go to the grocery store, or worry about our — walking our dogs, or allowing our children to get a license,” she said.

She went on to specifically talk about her worries related to her two daughters, Sasha and Malia, who are 19 and 22 years old, respectively.

“Every time they get in a car by themselves, I worry about what assumption is being made by somebody who doesn’t know everything about them,” Obama explained.

“The fact that they are good students and polite girls,” she added. “But maybe they’re playin’ their music a little loud. Maybe somebody sees the back of their head and makes an assumption.”

She also said that many of the protesters don’t want to be out demonstrating but feel that it is necessary.

“All those Black Lives Matter kids, they’d rather not have to worry about this, they’re takin’ to the streets because they have to,” she continued.

“They’re tryin’ to have people understand that — that we’re real folks,” Obama said. “And the fear that many have of so many of us is irrational. And it’s based on a history that is just — it’s sad, and it’s dark. And it’s time for us to move beyond that.”

Black Lives Matter has released updated demands on Tuesday that include the permanent suspension of former President Donald Trump from running for any future political office, and also from all social media platforms.

In August the former first lady has also blamed Trump in part for depression she suffered in the last months of his first term.

Bison overpopulation Grand canyon hunting Grand canyon national park Hunters shoot bison Intelwars Nps shoot bison

National Park officials call for volunteers to shoot bison in the Grand Canyon — 45,000 apply for a dozen spots

National Park Service (NPS) officials will hold a raffle to decide what 12 lucky people will have the opportunity to shoot bison in the Grand Canyon after they received 45,000 applications.

The NPS said in a post on their website that overpopulation of the bison was becoming a problem in the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

The park service is seeking 12 skilled shooters to reduce the population of bison from about 600 down to a more manageable 200.

This action is necessary due to the rapid growth of the bison population and the transition from the herd using state and U.S. Forest Service lands into almost exclusively residing within Grand Canyon. Impacts from grazing and trampling on water, vegetation, soils, and archaeological sites, as well as on visitor experience and wilderness character also necessitate action.

And that’s not all.

“They also have a negative impact on the water quality on the North Rim as well,” said Caitlyn Thomas, a public affairs spokesperson for the Grand Canyon National Park, to KTVX-TV.

“They wallow around in the water and it creates a real e.coli problem because that water table feeds directly into Roaring Springs, and that’s the water source for folks that are living, working and also recreating at the North Rim,” she added.

The volunteers have a high set of demands to meet in order to qualify for the opportunity to shoot the bison. They have to pass a criminal background check, have a firearm safety certification and pass a marksman proficiency test. They must also provide for their own lodging, firearm, equipment and food.

The volunteers selected will search for bison on foot at elevations of 8,000 feet or higher, the AP reported. The volunteers will be notified May 17.

The Grand Canyon is among the most popular of the national parks in the United States. The NPS said that in 2020 the Grand Canyon was the sixth most popular park with 2.9 million visitors. Yellowstone National Park came in second with 3.8 million visitors and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park came in first with 12.1 million visitors.

Coronavirus deaths higher Coronavirus deaths undercounted Global coronavirus deaths Intelwars More coronavirus deaths Survey on coronavirus deaths

New study claims coronavirus deaths are 57% higher than official count — up to 900,000 in the US

While coronavirus infections and deaths are falling across the country, one study claims that the actual number of deaths from the pandemic is 57% higher than the official count.

The study by researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation was published on Thursday and said the actual number of coronavirus deaths in the United States could be as high as 900,000.

As of Thursday, the official count for the coronavirus deaths stands at more than 575,000 in the U.S.

Researchers said they tried to calculate the true number of deaths “caused directly by the SARS-CoV-2 virus” by analyzing excess deaths reported during the pandemic period.

The study found that the same could be true for deaths globally.

The reported number of coronavirus deaths globally is 3.24 million, but the study estimates that the actual number of deaths from the virus could be as many as 7 million, more than double the official figure.

“The analysis just shows how challenging it has been during the pandemic to accurately track the deaths — and actually, transmission — of COVID,” said Dr. Christopher Murray, the head of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

“And by focusing in on the total COVID death rate, I think we bring to light just how much greater the impact of COVID has been already and may be in the future,” he added.

Murray explained that medical services are more preoccupied with helping patients than counting the deaths accurately.

“We see, for example, that when health systems get hit hard with individuals with COVID, understandably they devote their time to trying to take care of patients,” Murray said.

Other experts agree that the actual number of deaths from the virus might be higher than the official count, but disagreed with the conclusions reached in the study.

“I think that the overall message of this (that deaths have been substantially undercounted and in some places more than others) is likely sound, but the absolute numbers are less so for a lot of reasons,” said William Hanage, a Harvard University epidemiologist, to NPR.

The pandemic has spiked in India in recent weeks, where hospitals are being overrun and patients are being turned away due to lack of resources. There were nearly 4,000 daily deaths in India on Thursday, when less than a 100 deaths were reported in February. The total official death count is 230,000 but expected to increase dramatically.

Here’s more about the record number of deaths in India:

Birthing persons Birthing persons is stupid Controlling language Intelwars Libs use birthing persons Trans phrase birthing persons Transgender agenda

Liberals are pushing ‘birthing people’ phrase and social media erupts with laughter and ridicule

Some on the left have begun using the phrase “birthing people” as a euphemism for persons who are biologically women, and many on social media responded with mockery and ridicule.

Among the more prominent people using the phrase was far-left Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.), who posted a video of her testimony before Congress about racial inequality in medical care.

“Every day, Black birthing people and our babies die because our doctors don’t believe our pain. My children almost became a statistic. I almost became a statistic,” tweeted Bush.

Many objected to the odd use of “birthing people” instead of simply saying, “mothers,” or something similar.

“This is s***. They’re called mothers. Calling them ‘birthing people’ is reducing them to a function–making them not human,” replied Tim Carney of the American Enterprise Institute. “That’s what’s at the heart of this whole gender ideology. Reduce us to atomized autonomous individuals without a role or connection.”

“These people really want to remove all of the beauty and truth from the world. Leftism is a scourge. It is poison. It makes everything ugly and dull and weird. I hate it with all my soul,” responded commentator Matt Walsh.

“Liberals have devalued unborn babies for years by calling them clumps of cells or balls of tissue. Now they’re devaluing their mothers by calling them ‘birthing people,'” tweeted pro-life news outlet Life News.

NARAL, the abortion advocacy organization, defended Bush’s use of the phrase and tried to explain what it meant precisely.

“When we talk about birthing people, we’re being inclusive. It’s that simple,” the organization tweeted.

“We use gender neutral language when talking about pregnancy, because it’s not just cis-gender women that can get pregnant and give birth. Reproductive freedom is for *every* body,” the tweet added.

Bush appeared to respond to the online ridicule in a later tweet as well.

“Trans people give birth. Gender non-conforming people give birth. I identify as a mother, but not every person who gives birth identifies as one. Everything I do is rooted in love, a love that means that everyone’s identity is respected, welcomed, and celebrated,” she tweeted.

In December, a Twitter account from the Harvard Medical School department also referred to “birthing persons,” and later clarified why it was using the odd phrase.

“The webinar panelists used the term ‘birthing person’ to include those who identify as non-binary or transgender because not all who give birth identify as ‘women’ or ‘girls.’ We understand the reactions to this terminology and in no way meant for it to erase or dehumanize women,” the account said in a later tweet.

Bush made headlines in February when she appeared to defend a violent riot by 115 prisoners at the St. Louis County Jail.

Biden avoids reporters Biden communications team Intelwars Jen psaki Joe biden and press corps Joe biden communication Joe biden not to talk

Jen Psaki admits Biden is told to avoid answering impromptu questions from reporters

White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted on Thursday that the Biden team tells President Joe Biden to avoid answering impromptu questions from reporters.

Psaki made the comments while appearing on CNN’s “The Axe Files with David Axelrod.”

Axelrod was praising the communications team for managing Biden so well that there’s never a surprise from what he says to reporters.

“It seems to me that you guys have done a good job of managing that, because a lot of his interactions are speeches and settings in which you have a pretty good sense going in what he’s going to say,” Axelrod said.

“I think the thing that’s interesting is that he actually takes questions – I mean he took questions, I mean he did a mini press conference yesterday. He takes questions nearly every day he’s out from the press,” Psaki responded.

“That is not something we recommend, in fact, a lot of times we say, ‘Don’t take questions,'” she added.

Here’s the audio of her comments:

Psaki immediately followed up to say that the ultimate decision is up to the president.

“You know, but he’s going to do what he wants to do because he’s the president of the United States,” she continued.

Psaki went on to say that the White House press corps is never satisfied and they try to avoid distractions from the media and stay on their agenda.

“We’re never going to satisfy the White House press corps and their desires for access, and I think there have been mistakes made in the past of of trying to do that. If you do a press conference, you know, every other week or once a week, that doesn’t really satisfy them, they’re going to push for more, that’s their job,” she said.

“What we’ve tried to do, which has also been maddening I know for the press corps at times, is kind of not get pulled in by distractions,” she added.

Psaki also revealed that she plans to step down next year from the position after only one year.

Here’s another clip of Psaki’s comments:

Intelwars Liz cheney ouster from leadership Liz cheney re-election Liz cheney vs trump Meghan McCain Meghan mccain liz cheney

Meghan McCain defends Liz Cheney in fiery tirade, warns GOP of dire consequences if she’s ousted

Meghan McCain offered a fiery tirade in defense of Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (Wyo.) and warned of dire consequences if the party ousted her from leadership.

McCain made the comments during Wednesday’s episode of The View when asked to comment about the loss of support for Cheney from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and other Republicans.

“What’s going on is Liz Cheney, who was already, by the way, voted in January to stay in her position and overwhelmingly had support to stay when they tried to oust her before, and what’s happening it’s very clear, and I’m gonna be a little crass, they’re shivving her for her going on television multiple times and saying that the election wasn’t stolen, and for refusing to debase herself to Cheeto Jesus,” McCain said, referring to a common insulting nickname for former President Donald Trump.

“I don’t understand what’s going on, I have spent the past five years of my life trying to accept, understand, and include the MAGA base of this party,” she continued. “I think it is Kafkaesque to try and spin this in a way that this is about anything else but her not supporting President Trump.”

McCain pointed to the four Senate seats losses for the GOP in the 2020 election as proof that betting on Trump was the wrong course of action for the future of the party.

“We are going to bloodlet the party from women like me, college-educated women that lost you the election in the first place. I don’t understand it, it’s the most asinine politics I’ve seen in a really, really long time, in a cacophony of asinine politics,” she added.

“I feel very defensive of Liz Cheney, and if you do this, which it looks like they’re gonna do, I promise you there will be consequences, one way or another, there’s gonna be consequences,” McCain said.

“So go ahead, go ahead in this sausage fest of MAGA up on Capitol Hill, pull her out and put another woman in who will do and say anything you want for President Trump: ‘The election wasn’t stolen, he is Jesus, it’s only Trumpism going forward’ — see where this lands us in midterms,” McCain concluded.

“I’m absolutely furious,” she said.

Cheney defended herself on Tuesday in an op-ed in the Washington Post where she warned Republicans against supporting the “cult of personality” around Trump. Allies of McCarthy have said that they’re ready to vote against Cheney and remove her from the leadership of the party by the end of May.

Here’s the video of her comments:

Blm george floyd argument Howard zlotkin vs blm Howard zlotkin vs george floyd Intelwars New jersey black students New jersey teacher

New Jersey high school teacher suspended over profanity-laced online argument with black students about George Floyd

A New Jersey high school teacher was suspended with pay after he was recorded berating black students in a profanity-laced argument on an online video conference about the death of George Floyd.

Science teacher Howard Zlotkin angered some of his Dickinson High School students when he called Floyd a criminal and criticized the black community for lionizing him. He was talking to his class about climate change before the conversation veered onto the subject of Black Lives Matter.

“I hear people whining and crying about Black Lives Matter, but George Floyd was a f****** criminal and he got arrested and he got killed because he wouldn’t comply and the bottom line is we make him a f****** hero,” Zlotkin said on the recording made by a student.

“You guys emulate people, people that are just f***ing wrong, that are criminals, and you’re making them right because they’re black or they’ve got a bad story.”

Zlotkin also forcefully rejected the notion of white privilege.

“I come to work, I happen to get paid by my black vice principal who thinks I’m f***ing privileged, too,” he said.

“If you think I’m privileged then f*** you, because my daughter thinks I’m privileged and I don’t speak to her,” added Zlotkin when a student disagreed with him.

The students say he targeted four black female students when assigning them to write an essay entitled, “why black lives matter.”

One student’s mother immediately contacted school officials and their board of education over the interaction. They later complained to NBC News that nothing seemed to happen with the case until there was a second video recorded of the teacher cursing at another student.

“I don’t think you can make a case,” Zlotkin said to the 17-year-old student who told him she hadn’t written the essay assignment. “You know what, Timmia, don’t worry about it, you’re full of s*** too!”

A school official tried to explain the discrepancy in a statement released to the media.

“The school was in the process of taking statements from students today before proceeding with disciplinary actions, and then the second video surfaced,” said Norma Fernandez of Jersey City Public Schools.

“The teacher will not have access to students or the school as we proceed,” she added. “We are appalled by the statements, profanity, disrespect, and treatment of students.”

Zlotkin told the Washington Post that he was teaching the students facts.

“I tell the students it’s all about the facts, and I was teaching those facts. I am a science teacher,” he said. “My little snapshot that was posted to the world was out of this context.”

Officials are investigating the incident but they said Zlotkin is tenured and that complicates matters.

“I just hope he doesn’t teach at all!” said Margie Nieves, a mother of one of the students.

Blm protests lynching Boston miller lynching Intelwars Lynching accusations Mikayla miller death Mikayla miller murder Mikayla miller suicide

Activists claim gay black teen found hanging from a tree was lynched, and they’re accusing police of a cover up

Activists are claiming that a gay black teen found hanging from a tree was the victim of a racist lynching, but local law enforcement authorities say they don’t suspect any foul play in the incident.

16-year-old Mikayla Miller was found dead on April 18 in a wooded area of Hopkinton in Massachusetts, a town west of Boston that is predominantly white according to the Boston Globe.

The teen had gotten into a fight with two teenagers the previous day at a clubhouse in the apartment complex where she lived. Miller’s mother told the Boston Globe that the four teens were white and that the confrontation arose from a fight that Miller had with her girlfriend.

Miller’s mother went to sleep that night believing that her daughter was home. But police say that data from the teen’s phone shows that she walked about 1,316 steps that night between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Police have concluded that none of the other teenagers were with Miller when she died.

But an activist group is accusing the police of covering up the facts.

“Everything about this case says that something is being hidden, and it does not feel good,” said Monica Cannon-Grant of Violence in Boston, a group that represents victims of violent crimes.

“Mikayla was found tied to a tree, standing on her feet with a belt wrapped around her neck,” she explained.

Rumors in the case have also spread like wildfire on social media.

On Monday, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan released a timeline of the facts known in the case and denied the accusations that officials had already reached a conclusion in the case.

“Regarding the notion that this office has in some way neglected Mikayla’s case, or worse… engaged in some sort of cover-up because Mikayla was Black, or because she was a member of the LGBTQI community — that is patently false,” Ryan said to reporters.

Ryan also said they are still awaiting a medical examiner’s report on the cause of death.

Meanwhile, Cannon-Grant is organizing a protest on Thursday against the police and calling for quicker answers in the case.

Activists made similar lynching claims after a black man was found hanging from a tree in Victorville, California, in March 2020. Surveillance video later proved that the man had committed suicide.

Burger king racist attack Florida woman burger king Flying whopper racist attack Intelwars Racist florida whopper attack Racist florida woman attack Racist whopper

Florida woman charged with felony after allegedly tossing racist slurs and a Whopper at Burger King workers

A Florida woman has been charged with a felony after she allegedly tossed racial slurs and a Whopper burger at employees at a Burger King over a disagreement about the thickness of the tomato in her hamburger.

The startling incident unfolded at the Burger King in Sumter County, Florida.

Police say that a woman approached the fast food employees complaining that the tomato slice in her Whopper was too thick. The employees said that they could not help her unless she stopped screaming at them.

The woman then allegedly threw the Whopper at one of the employees when her back was turned.

They told the police that they heard the woman call them the n-word numerous times as she left the restaurant with her husband. The police report said that the victim’s account was corroborated by surveillance video and other witnesses. One employee was able to get their vehicle’s license plate and gave it to the police.

Police were able to identify the woman as 77-year-old Judith Black and interviewed her at her home at a retirement community.

The police report said that Black told them she was upset about the thickness of the tomato in her hamburger, and also admitted that she threw the hamburger at the employees. Police say she admitted to calling one employee a “stupid black b***h.”

Black would have only been charged with a first degree misdemeanor for tossing the Whopper, but because she allegedly used racist epithets at the same time, police elevated the charge to a third degree felony under a statue against “evidencing prejudice while committing offense.”

Black was released on Saturday on a $2,500 bond.

The incident is similar to a previous Burger King assault caught on video in January 2019 when a woman assaulted employees over the tomatoes in her hamburger. In that case no racial animus was reported.

Here’s a local news report about the previous tomato Burger King attack:
