A father who was arrested at a school board meeting in Loudoun, Virginia has come out and revealed that his daughter was brutally sexually assaulted at her school by a male in the girls' washroom.

On June 22, Scott Smith was dragged out of a Loudoun County school board meeting by police after getting into a vocal altercation with board members over the proposed policy that would enshrine the ability for students to use whatever bathroom they choose.

The scuffle was caught on tape and went viral shortly after, showing Smith being pulled from the venue in cuffs with a bloody lip. Smith was ultimately charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

But disturbing new details are emerging as Smith has come forward to explain what happened that day, and accuse the Loudoun County school board of ignoring his daughter's sexual assault in a girls' restroom at her school.

Army deployed amid street fighting in Beirut after unidentified sniper fire kills port blast protesters

Armored vehicles have rolled into Beirut as the Lebanese capital descended into chaos, with crowds led by Hezbollah and Amal groups demonstrating against Tarek Bitar, the lead judge of the port blast investigation.

Beirut resembled a warzone on Thursday as the army deployed armored vehicles to a divided area of the city where deadly skirmishes erupted following an attack on a protest. The army declared that the troops would fire at any armed individuals on the capital's streets.

The Lebanese army deployed a range of armored vehicles, including tanks and trucks with mounted machine guns. Sources on the ground suggest the troops have moved toward a building from which militants are allegedly based.

Comment: More reporting from journalist Richard Medhurst:

It's unclear who instigated the gunfire, but we do know that hijacking protests to further regime change agendas, or to simply sow chaos, has been a common tactic of the West & its allies, such as Israel, we also know that the catastrophic explosion at Beirut's port back in August - notably the reason for the protest - was incredibly suspicious, and even had writers at Forbes asking 'Was Israel responsible?'

Lebanon has been suffering blackouts and hyperinflation of its currency amidst political turmoil, and for those forces pursuing a nefarious agenda the situation was ripe to be taken advantage of: Lebanon's Crippling Financial Crisis

Instagram removed a biologist's post which highlighted the male biological advantages in certain sports, classifying it as 'hate speech' and refusing appeal attempts.

Colin Wright, an evolutionary biologist and the managing editor of Quillette, claimed on Tuesday that the social network had taken down his post referencing a "peer reviewed paper showing male advantage in certain sports activities."

"They are not giving me the option to appeal their decision, and the post says it has already been 'reviewed,'" Wright added, calling Instagram's decision "very concerning."

Katie Couric admits to editing out Ruth Bader Ginsburg's harsh comments on kneeling during the national anthem

Katie Couric and Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Katie Couric has admitted that, in a 2016 interview, she withheld Ruth Bader Ginsburg's harshest comments on kneeling during the national anthem.

The editing was done in an effort to "protect" the late Supreme Court justice, Couric wrote in her memoir, which was obtained by The Post. She revealed in "Going There," which is out Oct. 26, that she felt that Ginsburg, who was 83 at the time of the interview, may not have totally gotten what Couric was asking her, as first reported by the Daily Mail.

She "was elderly and probably didn't understand the question," Couric explained in the 500-page scorched-earth biography in which no colleague, ex-boyfriend or acquaintance is safe from the former "Today" host's brutal score-settling.


CNN's Sanjay Gupta goes on Joe Rogan's show to turn him on to vaccines, gets grilled about his network's 'horse dewormer lies'

Joe Rogan and Sanjay Gupta

Joe Rogan and Sanjay Gupta
CNN's row with Joe Rogan over his use of Covid-19 treatments took a twist on Wednesday when the network's chief medical correspondent went on Rogan's podcast and was confronted about the network's 'lies'.

Popular American podcaster Joe Rogan is a Covid vaccine skeptic and used an unproven therapeutic regimen when he contracted Covid-19 in late August. Among other things, he took the anti-parasitic drug ivermectin. CNN reported that he used "a horse dewormer," which he insists is a lie, since he took the version of the drug for human use after it was prescribed by a doctor.

On Wednesday, the podcast host had the opportunity to raise the issue with CNN' top medical reporter, Sanjay Gupta, who was not able to defend his network's 'horse dewormer' claims.

"They shouldn't have said it was horse dewormer," Gupta readily acknowledged, seemingly eager to change the topic. But Rogan persisted.


Arizona audit couldn't match up identity of 86,391 voters

Maricopa County ballots cast in the 2020 general election are examined and recounted by contractors working for Florida-based company, Cyber Ninjas, Thursday, May 6, 2021 at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix.
They don't appear to exist and 73.8% are Democrat or 'no party affiliation'

The Arizona audit could not find an identity match on 86,391 people. This is disclosed on Page 56 of the "Results Details" report.

These Maricopa voters cast ballots in Nov 2020 and don't seem to exist. The ones registered as Democrat or selected no party affiliation represent a whopping 73.8% of these unknown voters. That's 63,757 ballots. Not selecting a party makes monitoring of nefarious registrations much harder as everything not R or D is bulked together as "Other". Even the new State voter registration form now only has only 3 categories (R, D, Other) and some registration reporting reduced to similar.

Comment: The Gateway Pundit follows up:
Over 284,000 ballots in Maricopa County are missing their original corresponding image. One out of every 10 Maricopa County ballots in the 2020 Election is missing its original ballot image.

A new video from Jovan Pulitzer shows that the original ballot image for over 284,000 Maricopa County ballots is missing. This is one out of every 10th ballot.

The end result is comical but outrageous. This country was awarded to Joe Biden based on Hunter Biden's logic.


Federal judge finds DC jail warden in contempt, demands DOJ civil rights probe of Jan. 6 detainees

Christopher Worrell • US District Judge Royce Lamberth
A federal judge has found the warden of a D.C. jail and the director of the D.C. Department of Corrections in contempt of court Wednesday and called for an investigation by the Department of Justice to determine whether the jail has violated the civil rights of Jan. 6 defendants. Reagan appointee U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth of Washington ruled Wednesday:
"For the reasons stated in open court, it is adjudged that the Warden of the D.C. jail Wanda Patten and Director of the D.C. Department of Corrections Quincy Booth are in civil contempt of court. The Clerk of the Court is ordered to transmit a copy of this order to the Attorney General of the United States for appropriate inquiry into potential civil rights violations of Jan. 6 defendants, as exemplified in this case.

"I find that the civil rights of the defendant have been abused. I don't know if it's because he's a January 6th defendant or not, but I find this matter should be referred to the attorney general of the United States for a civil rights investigation into whether the D.C. Department of Corrections is violating the civil rights of January 6th defendants ... in this and maybe other cases."
Christopher Worrell, the defendant in the specific case who is being charged with several felonies related to the January 6th riot, is being treated for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and has contracted the coronavirus while in jail. Worrell broke his hand in jail in May and was recommended to have surgery in June but in August his lawyers say jail officials have not addressed the injury and have only provided Tylenol and other anti-inflammatories.

The judge's ruling in Worrell's case comes after he found there was more than an "inexcusable" delay of jail officials turning over medical documents.

Comment: There must be a way to criminalize the criminal system! That civil rights are being abused to the point of non-existence speaks volumes about this administrations upside-down approach and the shredding of constitutional amendments. No accountability equals no foul.


Gabby Petito died by strangulation, coroner says

Gabby Petito died by strangulation, a Wyoming coroner announced Tuesday. The grim details come as authorities continue to search for her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, who was traveling with her before she died.

Dr. Brent Blue, the Teton County coroner, said the manner of death is still considered a homicide, backing initial autopsy results that were released last month. He did not comment on who may be responsible for her death and said he could not comment on how his team determined she died by strangulation.

The 22-year-old was reported missing and found on September 19 after she and Laundrie embarked on a cross-country road trip earlier this summer. Laundrie returned to Florida on September 1 without Petito, 10 days before her mother reported her missing.

Winter heating bills set to jump up to 54% as shortages & inflation bites

Amber Cox shovels snow from the porch roof at her home in Auburn, Maine, on March 8, 2018. With prices surging worldwide for heating oil, natural gas and other fuels, the U.S. government said Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2021 it expects households to see jumps of up to 54% for their heating bills compared to last winter.
Get ready to pay sharply higher bills for heating this winter, along with seemingly everything else.

With prices surging worldwide for heating oil, natural gas and other fuels, the U.S. government said Wednesday it expects households to see their heating bills jump as much as 54% compared to last winter.

Nearly half the homes in the U.S. use natural gas for heat, and they could pay an average $746 this winter, 30% more than a year ago. Those in the Midwest could get particularly pinched, with bills up an estimated 49%, and this could be the most expensive winter for natural-gas heated homes since 2008-2009.

The second-most used heating source for homes is electricity, making up 41% of the country, and those households could see a more modest 6% increase to $1,268. Homes using heating oil, which make up 4% of the country, could see a 43% increase — more than $500 — to $1,734. The sharpest increases are likely for homes that use propane, which account for 5% of U.S. households.

Comment: Whilst the energy shortages were an inevitable result of the government manufactured crisis, and soaring inflation has been held back for as long as possible by the economy manipulators, that it appears to be coinciding with what could be one of the earliest and coldest winters on record is rather notable:


United Airlines must delay its vaccine mandate for workers seeking an exemption

In this Oct. 14, 2020 file photo, United Airlines employees work at ticket counters in Terminal 1 at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago.
A federal judge in Texas ordered United Airlines to temporarily halt its plan to put unvaccinated employees on unpaid leave if they have requested an exemption from the company's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

United Airlines announced Aug. 6 that the Chicago-based airline was requiring all 67,000 of its U.S.-based employees to be vaccinated. At the time, the airline said about 90% of pilots and 80% of flight attendants had already been vaccinated.

But for the small portion of employees that refused to get a coronavirus vaccine and requested either a medical or religious exemption from United, the company said it would place those workers on unpaid leave.

Six employees filed a federal lawsuit over this policy arguing unpaid leave is not a reasonable accommodation, but rather an adverse employment action.

U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman responded to that lawsuit Tuesday by ordering a temporary restraining order on United to hold off on removing any worker requesting those exemptions from the payroll. That's just until he can hear arguments in the case at a later date.

Comment: People are refusing to get the experimental mRNA vaccines because they know they are far more dangerous than the virus itself and because they don't want to comply with the rising tyranny.

What is it that is hidden behind the PTB obsession to massively vaccinate the population when all the data available is telling us that countries with a higher percentage of the vaccinated population have more hospitalizations and deaths from Covid and from the vaccine side effects?
