Arkansas leaders propose a bill to repeal Confederate Flag Day

Tuesday, January 19, 2021


Arkansas State Representative Andrew Collins (D), together with Senator Breanne Davis (R), filed a bill on Friday to repeal Confederate Flag Day in the state.

Every year, the Saturday before Easter Sunday is recognized as Confederate Flag Day in Arkansas.

Following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, a Black man who was killed by a police officer in May 2020, a larger number of people protested against Confederate flags and rebelled enough to remove the statues of Confederate leaders.

While some view the flag as a symbol of Southern pride, the flag also has a dark history to it.

For decades, the Confederate flag — with its red background, blue X, and white stars — has been waved by the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other white supremacists in the country.

Confederate flags were banned by 2020 in several places across the United States, such as NASCAR events and military installations.

A variety of large retailers, like Amazon and Walmart, no longer permit the sale of the flag or any Confederate merchandise.

In June 2020, lawmakers in Mississippi voted to replace their Confederate-themed state flag.

The Arkansas state flag continues to have ties to the Confederacy itself. The three stars below “Arkansas” represent the three countries the state has belonged to, but the fourth star, located above the word, was added to represent the Confederacy.

Two bills were presented in 2019 alone to change the meaning of the fourth star, but both were blocked by the committee before they could ever see the floor.

If the bill proposed on Friday gets passed by the committee and ultimately makes its way to the governor’s desk, Arkansas could potentially see the removal of one of its ties to the Confederacy.

Parler CEO goes into hiding with family after receiving death threats

Sunday, January 17, 2021

A new court filing on Friday from the legal team of Parler, an alternative social media platform mainly used right-wingers in the US, has revealed that its CEO John Matze and his family are in hiding as they received death threats.

"Matze himself, as the CEO of the company Amazon Web Services (AWS) continues to vilify, has had to leave his home and go into hiding with his family after receiving death threats and invasive personal security breaches," read the filing.

Parler had earlier launched an antitrust lawsuit against Amazon after the tech giant removed Parler from its services after the last week's riots on the Capitol.

Amazon filed a response to the lawsuit, claiming the lawsuit has no legal basis, and alleged its workers have been faced with threats and harassment.

The filing from Parler's lawyers obtained by Fox News observes the disturbing claims made by Amazon but note that the Jeff Bezos-owned company is not the one receiving threats.

"Although AWS's motion to seal focuses only on its own employees, Parler's employees have been similarly harassed and threatened... Parler's CEO, John Matze, Jr., reports in his declaration in support of Parler's TRO motion that many Parler employees are suffering harassment and hostility, fear for their safety and that of their families, and in some cases have fled their home state to escape persecution," the filing read.

Earlier this week, Matze said about the various threats he has received and the measures he would take to protect his family.

"There is a group called UGNazi that is targeting me," Matze said, noting the controversial hacker group has released many of his passwords and personal information on the internet.

"They published my street address, they threatened to come through my front door," he added.

On January 6, a number of people had stormed the US Capitol to protest against the legislators confirming electoral slates from battleground states they thought were invalid. The protest also turned violent, resulting in the deaths of at least five people, including a police officer.

Amid rising pressure on US President Donald Trump for his role in encouraging the protestors, Parler was banned by Amazon, Apple, and Google.

According to The Verge, these bans come after the allegations that the social media app was fostering calls to violence ahead of, and following, the raid on the US Capitol.

Parler CEO John Matze had then alleged Amazon, Google, and Apple of a coordinated attack to kill competition.

"We were too successful too fast," Matze wrote. "You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don't count us out."

Matze maintains that no evidence has been provided so far which would prove that Parler was involved in Capitol riots.

Stolen car recovered has been stolen again from an impound lot in Ohio

Wednesday, December 16, 2020



Police attended Hilltop Garage at 12:09 p.m. November 9 to finish a stolen vehicle report on an SUV reported stolen a day ago. The car was recovered in a restaurant parking lot following the report.

However, when the officer arrived at the impound lot at Hilltop Garage, Independence, Ohio, he was informed that the stolen SUV had been re-stolen from the impound lot 30 minutes prior to the officer's arrival.

Reports noted that the vehicle owner also attended the scene to retrieve his SUV, but was “notified that someone had stolen his vehicle again,” reports said.

A Hilltop worker reportedly witnessed the theft and gave a description of the vehicle the suspects arrived in, but there were no further details on the suspects at the time of the report.

A driver was pulled over at 11:14 a.m. November 6 after the odor of burned marijuana was noticed coming from the vehicle.

A .40-caliber automatic handgun was discovered inside the car during the stop. The driver was arrested for possessing a firearm. Reports added that he has “an extensive criminal history for drug trafficking and is prohibited from possessing a firearm”.

A man was arrested for theft at 9:19 a.m. November 8 when he was observed by Drug Mart store security putting $140 worth of merchandise into a backpack. He also had several outstanding warrants. He was turned over to Avon police officers on one of the warrants.

A man was arrested at a Red Roof Inn when police checking the parking lot saw a handgun that appeared to be loaded in the front seat of the man’s SUV.

The man was wanted on outstanding warrants and was arrested on those warrants, with the possibility of additional charges associated to illegal weapons possession pending.

Gangster Bishnoi moves High Court over fears of encounter

Sunday, December 13, 2020

Lawrence Bishnoi


Chandigarh-born gangster Lawrence Bishnoi moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking directions for handcuffing him if he was brought to Chandigarh on a production warrant after expressing “genuine apprehension” of death in an encounter “as done in the infamous case of Vikas Dubey”.

Appearing before the Bench of Justice Gurvinder Singh Gill through video-conferencing, his counsel Prateek Gupta contended that the petitioner was confined in Bharatpur jail of Rajasthan for the past about five years. He said the petitioner, as such, had to be interrogated in Rajasthan. In the alternative, he would be kept handcuffed if required in Chandigarh, Gupta added, while seeking directions for securing his life.

Gupta also sought directions for dispensing with his physical presence in relation to the investigation of an FIR registered on May 31 at the Sector 34 police station for the attempt to murder, house trespass, and other offenses under Sections 452, 307, and 34 of the Indian Penal Code, besides provisions of the Arms Act. Gupta also urged interrogation through video-conferencing.

Gupta submitted that the petitioner was actively involved in politics while he was in college. He was active even thereafter. As a result, he had a political rivalry and was involved in a huge number of cases in Haryana and Punjab. He was now sought to be nominated as an accused in some FIRs in Chandigarh as well.

UT public prosecutor AM Punchhi submitted that the petitioner had himself asked that he might be brought handcuffed and the state certainly had no objection to it. His safety would be ensured under all circumstances.

Before parting, Justice Gill directed Punchhi to furnish information of measures proposed to be taken in case the petitioner was to be brought to Chandigarh. He was also asked to give details of the manpower and vehicle deployment, apart from specifying “whether any arrangement is possible for video-recording the entire transit”. 

Bishnoi was to a well-off agriculturist in the village of Dhattaranwali near Abohar in Ferozpur district, Chattisgarh.

Bishnoi hit the national headlines when one of his associates, Sampat Nehra, was arrested from Bengaluru in June 2018. Nehra, son of a former ASI of Chandigarh Police, had revealed during interrogation his plan to killed Bollywood star Salman Khan — who was convicted in the blackbuck poaching case — at the behest of Bishnoi, who is lodged in Bharatpur Jail of Rajasthan and is believed to run his activities using cell phones inside the prison.

In November 2019, when Bishnoi was brought to Chandigarh on warrants for interrogation in the murder case of Rajveer, alias Sonu Shah, a criminal-turned-property dealer, evidence emerged to show that he was using a cell phone inside Bharatpur Jail for extortion, murders, and settling of property disputes. Chandigarh Police had taken up the matter with Bharatpur jail authorities. According to Chandigarh police records, 7 FIRs were registered against Bishnoi in the city — he was acquitted in four of them.

Leftists angry over NDA's victory in 2020 Bihar elections

Wednesday, November 11, 2020


National Democratic Alliance (NDA) which consisted of Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and Janta Dal United (JDU) have won the Bihar elections by securing 125 seats.

Similarly, the Bypoll results from 11 states were in favor of BJP who won 37 seats and leads 4 out of 58 of them.

But liberals are angry over NDA's victory in 2020 Bihar elections to the extent that they have refused to concede their defeat in 2020 Bihar elections.

Starting with Digvijay Singh, the Indian Congress leader and former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, he reacted to the results by saying that "Selective tampering is done" in the EVM machine.

Other reactions include:


 

Pushpam Priya Choudhary is a CM candidate for Bihar who gained fewer votes than the None of the above (NOTA) votes. 

This entire scenario is in contrast with their reaction to the recent US elections where they are frequently asking Donald Trump to admit defeat in the elections despite the clear evidence of voting irregularities

Female Trump supporter beaten for carrying Trump 2020 flag

Sunday, October 18, 2020

Isabella DeLuca


Isabella DeLuca, was attending the Women’s March in Washington, DC on 17 October for showing support for Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.

DeLuca was toting a ‘Trump 2020’ flag to not only show support for Judge Barrett, but also for the US President Donald Trump who is standing as a Republican candidate for the 2020 presidential elections.

DeLuca was approached and assaulted while attending the rally by a woman she referred to as a “geriatric older female” according to the National File.

“The first woman was a white older woman – she had glasses on, a glittery bedazzled Black Lives Matter shirt,” Deluca informed National File. “She looked like she could’ve been my grandma, honestly.”

Black Lives Matter protestors grabbed DeLuca’s flag, and was punched when she was attempting to retrieve it. This led other members of the Women’s March to join in hitting, pushing and punching DeLuca.

DeLuca was hospitalized and given a cervical collar because of the damage from the injuries. She had “extensive head and neck injuries, had her lips bloodied, and is also enduring blurry vision and dizziness,” National File noted.

Pence-Harris Debate: Trump defeated ISIS and China is responsible for coronavirus

Thursday, October 08, 2020

Pence and Harris debate moderated by Susan Page


During the debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence, Pence laid out the points that it was because of Donald Trump's presidency that ISIS caliphate was destroyed.

Harris provided no argument against that.

Pence also pointed out that China is responsible for coronavirus.

Again, Harris provided no argument against that either.

Are democrats unwilling to oppose Islamic terrorism and the Chinese Communist Party? 

I am not sure what else can be concluded.

Obama was among the most prominent democrats who opposed even the mention of 'Islamic terrorism'. Similarly, I am unaware of any criticism from democrats that had been made against the clear mishandling of coronavirus by China.

Tesak was 'tortured and murdered' with CCTV cameras not working, say family

Monday, October 05, 2020



More evidence has come to light that Maxim Martsinkevich, nicknamed Tesak, was murdered in his cell, his father and lawyer said.

Officials in Russia say that Tesak committed suicide in his cell in a Urals detention center.

The officials claim that he committed suicide by asphyxia on 16 September 2020. He was 36.

His father Sergey though has highlighted 'disturbing' new information about the death.

He said: "I examined the body. It really was murder. There were traces of torture, two toenails torn off, there was an injection…. Do not believe this was suicide."

Tesak's body in prison


The body was discovered on the lower bunk in the cell. Sergey claimed that his son's arms had been twisted before death. 

The upper bunk in the cell was coated with blood and the words 'Tesak died here.'

Lawyer Ivan Sidorov said that the whole cell was covered in blood.

Yet one of several 'suicide notes' by Tesak said that he could not walk at the time of his death. All of the notes were also dated October 2020. 

Mir Sidorov said: "So Maxim got up and wandered around? Suicides don't do that. They usually hide quietly under the sheet. There are a lot of strange and incomprehensible aspects."

A handwriting expert has said that one of the notes was in a women's writing. While the time of death on the official certification does not match the original statement by the officials.

One inconsistency shows that Tesak refused breakfast in jail when, by official documents, he was already dead.

Tesak was listed as a criminal leader and an escape risk and was meant to be monitored every 30 minutes Sergey and Sidorov say.

Yet the CCTV cameras in his cell were not working on the night when he died, they said.

The lawyer added that the prison chief was 'very embarrassed' that gruesome pictures of the corpse showed the Neo-Nazi wearing earplugs when he died.

"No explanation has been given," he said.

Tesak was in transit to Moscow for a court hearing at the time of his death. 

Tesak had stated previously that "If suddenly I slash my veins or hang myself while in transit, know that I was helped. Strongly."

His family is demanding an independent investigation into the death.

Tesak was jailed for ten years for 'banditry and hooliganism' after a vigilante campaign where alleged drugs suppliers were attacked with metal bats, pepper spray and electric shockers.

He had three prior convictions relating to extremism and inciting hatred and ran far-right youth groups and posed with swastikas.

The Russian Investigative Committee has denied he was murdered.

Svetlana Petrenko, a spokeswoman for the committee, said: "One can say with confidence that Martsinkevich left suicide notes and committed suicide. He had a very serious motive to kill himself."

Biden called US troops a 'Stupid Bastards' and 'Dull Bunch' in 2016

Saturday, September 26, 2020



A video surfaced on social media Friday showing the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden making a speech to overseas U.S. service members where he called them “stupid bastards” and a “dull bunch.”

During his last months as Vice President, Biden in 2106 visited Al-Dhafra Air Base near the capital city Abu Dhabi of United Arab Emirates and addressed the U.S. Airmen stationed at the base. 

In the speech, Biden talks about having “incredibly good judgment” based on his wife and whom he appointed to the academy.

“And I want you to know notwithstanding what you may hear about me, I have incredibly good judgment,” Biden said. “One, I married Jill. And two, I appointed Johnson to the academy. I just want you to know that.”

The military members in the audience and those behind him didn’t applaud, causing Biden to say: “Clap for that, you stupid bastards. Come on, man. Man, you are a dull bunch. Must be slow here, man. I don’t know.”

The Biden campaign has confirmed the resurfaced video Friday afternoon but defended their candidate, saying the former vice president was “jokingly” referring to the military troops as “stupid bastards” and “a dull bunch” to stir the “audience to clap for an airwoman on the stage”.

“Vice President Biden was jokingly encouraging the audience to clap for an airwoman on the stage, and a number of service members can be seen laughing and smiling at the comment. Seconds before, he praised them for ‘the incredible sacrifices [they] make for our country,'” said Andrew Bates, the spokesperson of Biden campaign.

“He thanked them for their patriotism and courage throughout, and closed his remarks by saying, ‘you’re the finest generation of warriors the world has ever, ever known’—receiving an enthusiastic ovation,” added Bates.

Trump 2020 campaign responded to the video and said that Biden should make an apology to the US troops since his campaign has “confirmed the authenticity of the video.”

The video comes after Biden over the past several weeks during a few campaign events he has held has repeatedly criticized presidential rival President Donald Trump over a heavily disputed story from The Atlantic that reportedly alleged he called fallen service members “losers” and “suckers”.

“Mr. President, if you don’t respect our troops, you can’t lead them.” Biden tweeted with a campaign ad video attached that complied shortly from the Biden campaign after the Atlantic story came out earlier September.

None of the four anonymous that talked to The Atlantic reporter has come forth to verify the story and was rejected by over 20 on-the-record sources, including disgruntle former National Security Advisor John Bolton who has been a fierce critic of Trump since last year.

I also wonder why CBS, CNN, NBC, and other mainstream outlets are not giving coverage to this video.

Russian nationalist Tesak found dead in jail in Russia

Thursday, September 17, 2020

Maxim Martsinkevich aka Tesak


Maxim Martsinkevich, who went by the nickname Tesak (Russian for machete) has been found dead in what is said to be a suicide inside his jail cell in the Urals region of western Siberia, prison authorities said Wednesday.

Tesak was serving a 10-year sentence for a violent attack on synthetic cannabinoids dealers. Martsinkevich, 36, had three earlier convictions relating to extremism and inciting hatred.

Tesak was found dead in a pre-trial detention center in the Chelyabinsk region, where he was due to be transferred to Moscow for questioning as part of a criminal case opened in 1999, Interfax reported.

Investigators have started a preliminary inquiry into Tesak’s death.

Tesak’s lawyer Ivan Sidorov told Interfax that Tesak had “no reason” to commit suicide and added that “someone may have helped him.”

The state-run RIA Novosti news agency cited regional human rights authorities in saying that neither Tesak nor his friends had any complaints prior to his death.

Conflicting reports said that Tesak may have left a suicide note allegedly asking to give a private diary and a book on communism to his wife, while another report said that there was no suicide note, according to the Meduza news website.

During his lifetime, Martsinkevich had gained popularity for his engagement in vigilante attacks on gay men, drug dealers and pedophiles.
