Headline: “Former Afghan president gives reason for fleeing, says he wants to return” What, is he broke already?
Trust the fbi after “the search”: Former (disgraced) FBI Counterintelligence Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok defended the FBI Monday morning during an appearance on MSNBC after the agency raided former President Trump’s Mar-A-Lago home last week to recover classified documents. “Absolutely the American public should trust what the FBI is doing,” Strzok said. Why should I trust the fbi now? I didn’t trust them before “the search”.
And tell me it’s raining: Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen claimed that the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) expanded auditing power would only target the wealthy in a Thursday letter to the agency, outlining the ways the Biden administration intends to use funding provided by the Inflation Reduction Act. Okay, there are 2.8 million families that earn over $400,000 a year, which is the “declared” level. Hiring 87,000 new irs agents means each agent would have 32 people to audit. Thirty-two EACH YEAR! That does not count the agents already employed. Janet, don’t pee down my back and then tell me it’s raining.
It’s not supposed to work that way: On Thursday, the Facebook account of the Thrall Police Department in Williamson County, Texas, posted a picture of an unidentified deputy with Kyle Rittenhouse. The initial Facebook post featured a picture of Rittenhouse and a Thrall police officer. A swarm of critical comments then ensued. A wave of outrage and hate followed. The police department doubled down and added the following message to the original post: “I must have missed something, I believed that this young man was arrested, charged, indicted and then found not guilty by a jury of his peers. Is this not how our country works anymore? The hate in these comments is terrible, if you have information that is contrary to that I would honestly love to hear it.”(Underline is mine.) That’s the way it is supposed to work. But today everything is guilt by accusation. The louder the screaming accusations, the more guilty you must be.
Stand-up for yourself: Smith & Wesson fired back at the House Oversight and Reform Committee subpoena filed by Democrats, which seeks details on its modern sporting rifles (MSR), issuing a stinging rebuke of crime in Democrat-run cities with strict gun control on law-abiding citizens and “soft-on-crime policies.” “Some have had the audacity to suggest that after they have vilified, undermined and defunded law enforcement for years, supported prosecutors who refuse to hold criminals accountable for their actions, overseen the decay of our country’s mental health infrastructure, and generally promoted a culture of lawlessness, Smith & Wesson and other firearm manufacturers are somehow responsible for the crime wave that has predictably resulted from these destructive policies.” “To be clear, a Smith & Wesson firearm has never broken into a home; a Smith & Wesson firearm has never assaulted a woman out for a late-night run in the city; a Smith & Wesson firearm has never carjacked an unsuspecting driver stopped at a traffic light,” Smith’s statement continued. Yeah, and kiss my subpoena.
Storage wars, gone badly: An unsuspecting family in New Zealand bought suitcases at a storage facility auction last week. The family that had purchased the bags as part of an online storage locker auction in Papatoetoe was involved in what is now being investigated as a suspected homicide. The unlucky bidders called police to their home on Moncrieff Avenue in South Auckland on Thursday afternoon after opening their newly purchased luggage to find dismembered human body parts stuffed inside. It was reported the suitcases possibly contained multiple sets of remains, and police were trying to determine the exact number of victims and identify them. Probably not what they thought they bought.
