HOW DID ALDRICH/BRINK GET AWAY WITH AN INSANE BOMB THREAT? … Colorado Mass Shooting Suspect Walked Free After Previous Alleged Bomb Threat. The DA Won’t Say Why

Colorado Springs District Attorney Michael Allen failed to pursue formal charges against a suspect in the Saturday mass shooting in Colorado Springs last year after the man allegedly threatened to bomb his mother, according to multiple reports. Allen’s office refused to answer why charges were not filed and claimed “a public criminal record does not exist” in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, allegedly shot and killed five people and injured many others Saturday night at the Colorado Springs LGBTQ nightclub Club Q. His mother had called authorities on June 18, 2021, accusing her son of threatening to harm her with a homemade bomb multiple weapons and ammunition, according to an El Paso County Sheriff’s Office press release, but Allen did not pursue formal charges in that case, according to The Gazette.

After the DCNF inquired as to why Aldrich was not formally charged in the 2021 case, Deputy District Attorney Brent Nelson told the outlet that “a public criminal record does not exist.”

NHL SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER HAS TAKEN ONE TOO MANY HITS TO THE HEAD… SETH ROY:
‘Nonbinary Identity Is Real’: NHL Goes Full Woke In A Tweet. Is The League Trying To Alienate Fans?

The NHL has gone completely woke.

In a tweet Tuesday, the NHL claimed that “[n]onbinary identity is real.”

They’re spreading utter nonsense to their near-seven million followers online, and it’s disgusting, considering that there are literally only two genders.

 

BALENCIAGA RUNS SCREAMING FROM PERVY CHILD AD CAMPAIGN THEY SIGNED OFF ON… NY POST: Balenciaga pulls controversial bear ads amid child abuse fears

Balenciaga issued an apology Tuesday for its new campaign that shows two young girls posing with teddy bears that appear to be wearing BDSM-style harnesses.

The advertisements supported Balenciaga’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection, which debuted this fall at Paris Fashion Week.

“We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused. Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms,” the company wrote in a statement posted to its Instagram Story. […]

Eagle-eyed online investigators pointed out that one photo seemingly showed what appeared to be an excerpt from a U.S. Supreme Court case that upheld part of a federal child pornography law.

“We apologize for displaying unsettling documents in our campaign,” the company continued in its statement. “We take this matter very seriously and are taking legal action against the parties responsible for creating the set and including unapproved items for our Spring 23 campaign photoshoot. We strongly condemn abuse of children in any form. We stand for children’s safety and well-being.”

 

FLASHBACK… MONDAY… NY POST: Balenciaga under fire over ‘creepy’ ads of kids with ‘bondage outfits’

Balenciaga is under fire online after showing two young girls holding stuffed animals dressed in what appears to be bondage gear in an advertisement.

The fashion house — which has been associated with the likes of Kim Kardashian and previously made headlines for its daring fashion choices — featured the mini models in Balenciaga apparel, holding plush toys that contrasted with the horrifying bondage get-ups.

In one image, a ginger-haired little girl sported a T-shirt from the brand while holding the strap connected to a white bear, which was in a vest with a padlocked choker around its neck.

 

MCCARTHY RAISES IMPEACHMENT FOR MAYORKAS… Kevin McCarthy Threatens Biden’s DHS Secretary With Impeachment If He Doesn’t Resign

House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy threatened President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas with impeachment Tuesday during a visit to the border in El Paso, Texas.

McCarthy, who is vying for the House speakership, said Republicans will push for Mayorkas’ impeachment if he refuses to step down. He was joined by several Republican colleagues, including Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales, who represents a southern border district, that made the trip to show support for Border Patrol.

“His actions have produced the greatest wave of illegal immigration in recorded history. Our country may never recover from Secretary Mayorkas’ dereliction of duty. This is why today I am calling on the secretary to resign. He cannot and must not remain in that position,” McCarthy said.

“If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate every order, every action and every failure to determine whether we can begin an impeachment inquiry,” McCarthy said.

 

BIDEN-NEGOTIATED TRAIN DEAL COLLAPSES… PENDING RAIL STRIKE COULD CRUSH THE ECONOMY… AP: A rail strike looms and impact on US economy could be broad

American consumers and nearly every industry will be affected if freight trains grind to a halt next month.

One of the biggest rail unions rejected its deal Monday, joining three others that have failed to approve contracts over concerns about demanding schedules and the lack of paid sick time. That raises the risk of a strike, which could start as soon as Dec. 9 under a deadline that was pushed back Tuesday.

It wouldn’t take long for the effects of a rail strike to trickle through the economy. Many businesses only have a few days’ worth of raw materials and space for finished goods. Makers of food, fuel, cars and chemicals would all feel the squeeze, as would their customers.

ANOTHER BIDEN MIDDLE FINGER TO THE CONSTITUTION… Biden Admin Will Extend Student Loan Payment Pause — Again — While Forgiveness Is Tied Up In Court

The Biden administration extended the student loan repayment pause to until the end of June 2023 while the administration’s student loan forgiveness plan is tied up in court, according to a Tuesday press release from the U.S. Department of Education (DOE).

Under the extension, loans do not need to be paid until 60 days after June 30, 2023, or whenever “litigation is resolved,” according to the DOE press release. The extension of the repayment pause comes as the Department of Justice (DOJ) urges the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a lower court’s ruling which blocked the student loan forgiveness plan.

“Callous efforts to block student debt relief in the courts have caused tremendous financial uncertainty for millions of borrowers who cannot set their family budgets or even plan for the holidays without a clear picture of their student debt obligations, and it’s just plain wrong,” U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said in a press release. “I want borrowers to know that the Biden-Harris Administration has their backs and we’re as committed as ever to fighting to deliver essential student debt relief to tens of millions of Americans.”

 

NEWLY REVEALED FAUCI EMAILS SHOW INTENSE FEB 2020 DEBATE ON WUHAN LAB… DAVID STROM: Unredacted Fauci e-mails: a bad look

The scientists involved in investigating the origins of COVID looked at the WIV and came away…unimpressed. In fact, they describe the Institute as the “Wild West,” where dangerous deeds were the norm.

There is also a lot of back and forth about the quality of the science behind a famous paper claiming that COVID-19 was of natural origin. That paper, written by virologists who originally believed that COVID was man-made, was written after a single conference call with Anthony Fauci and some friends of his. They went from believing that COVID was engineered to–with no additional research–writing a scientific paper published in Nature Medicine insisting that COVID was completely natural.

Quite a reversal of opinion, and quite a rapid turnaround time. Right after the conference call. Coming to the conclusion that Fauci and company insisted was true. Writing a paper to prove it, despite the fact that Fauci and company claimed (back when they believed that the virus was engineered) that these scientists were not experts in coronaviruses at all. Suddenly, after a phone call, they were!

 

CHAOS AT WHITE HOUSE AS DAILY CALLER REPORTER SEEKS ANSWERS ON COVID’S ORIGINS… Press Corps Explodes As KJP Publicly Berates Daily Caller Reporter (VIDEO)

The White House press corps exploded Tuesday after press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre berated the Daily Caller’s White House correspondent Diana Glebova.

Dr. Anthony Fauci was partaking in a press briefing when he went to step away from the podium. Glebova said she had asked several times what Fauci had done to investigate the origins of the virus, prompting Jean-Pierre to step back to the podium and snap at Glebova.

“Hold on one second, we have a process here. I’m not calling on people who yell. You’re being disrespectful to your colleagues and you’re being disrespectful to our guest. I will not call on you if you yell, and also you’re taking time off the clock,” she said.

The Grio reporter April Ryan also told her she was “being disrespectful.”

Glebova tried to respond but Jean-Pierre immediately silenced her, saying she would not get into a “back and forth with you.”

 

KARINGE SPINS OUT OF CONTROL… ‘I’m Done With You Right Now’: Simon Ateba Confronts Jean-Pierre For Not Taking Questions On COVID Origins (VIDEO)

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre grew frustrated after Today News Africa White House Chief Correspondent Simon Ateba confronted her for not allowing reporters to ask White House Senior Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci questions about COVID-19.

Fauci briefly took questions from reporters at the White House press briefing Tuesday, where he appeared to ignore several reporters as they yelled out questions on the origins of COVID-19. Jean-Pierre lashed out at Ateba as he continued asking a question without being called on.

“It is not your turn!” the press secretary said. “It is not your turn!”

“If you’re going to hold a press briefing, you need to call on people across the room,” Ateba said. “She has a valid question. She’s asking about the origin of COVID … Fauci’s the best person to answer this question.”

“I hear the question, but we’re not doing this the way you want it,” Jean-Pierre said. “This is disrespectful. Simon, I’m done. I’m done with you right now. You’re taking time away from your colleagues.”

 

SAN FRAN FIRES PERFECTLY COMPETENT ELECTIONS OFFICIAL BECAUSE OF HIS SKIN COLOR… JOHN SEXTON: San Francisco elections commission decides not to renew contract for director because he’s a white guy

His name is John Arntz and he’s been handling elections for San Francisco for 20 years. But recently he was told that they elections commission had voted 4-2 not to renew his job, though they did say he could reapply and compete for it. Did Arntz do a poor job and anger someone? No, by all accounts he is considered good at his job, having recently been praised for his work […]

The move drew astonishment and criticism from the mayor and other Arntz supporters.

Commissioners made the decision not because Arntz is doing a bad job, they said, but because they wanted to give a chance for people of all backgrounds to apply.

“Our decision wasn’t about your performance, but after twenty years we wanted to take action on the City’s racial equity plan and give people an opportunity to compete for a leadership position,” Commission President Chris Jerdonek wrote in an email Monday to Arntz. “We also wanted to allow enough time for a fair and equitable process and conduct as broad a search as possible.”
