Samuel Otis Brinton is an American nuclear engineer and LGBTQ activist.
It turns out that Biden's disgraced nuclear waste official Sam Brinton, made famous after he was arrested for stealing ladies' luggage, was a member of the "drag nun" group tapped to celebrate Pride month with the LA Dodgers.

Brinton wasn't just a member, but held a leadership position with the DC chapter of Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a drag group that dons religious garb and poses salaciously with crosses in order to get their message of inclusion (or something) across.

Brinton was the principal officer of the DC chapter, Fox News discovered after reviewing tax filing, from its founding in 2016 to 2018. His drag name was Sister Ray Dee O'Active.

Consumers fighting back, with some success, against brands gone woke

At a recent baseball game, I watched a fellow Cubs fan facing a dilemma at Nationals Park in Washington. No, it wasn't the dilemma of whether to cheer another meltdown by a Cubs pitcher — it was the beer vendor, who was handing him a Bud Light. The vendor had only Bud Lights left...for a good reason. The company is now literally giving away beer for free due to a consumer backlash.

With a pained look, the obviously thirsty fan declined and headed for the concourse looking for another brand. Bud Light was dead to him after the controversy over a promotion featuring transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney. The Cubs fan isn't alone. Bud Light's parent company, Anheuser-Busch, has reportedly lost nearly $19 billion since this controversy began.

But founder Patrisse Cullors' brother was still paid $1.6M for 'security services' in 2022, while sister of board member earned $1.1M for 'consulting'

Black Lives Matter's national organization is at risk of going bankrupt after its finances plunged $8.5 million into the red last year - while simultaneously handing multiple staff seven-figure salaries.

Financial disclosures obtained by The Washington Free Beacon show the perilous state of BLM's Global Network Foundation, which officially emerged in November 2020, as a more formal way of structuring the civil rights movement.

Yet despite the financial controversy and scrutiny, BLM GNF continued to hire relatives of the founder, Patrisse Cullors, and several board members.

Cullors' brother, Paul Cullors, set up two companies which were paid $1.6 million providing 'professional security services' for Black Lives Matter in 2022.

Biden's DOJ drops all charges against Soros-backed Massachusetts DA caught lying under oath

US Attorney District Massachusetts Rachel Rollins • US AG Merrick Garland
Biden's DOJ has decided not to charge Rachael Rollins after evidence found her guilty of election interference, raising concerns about a double standard in the criminal justice system.

Rachel Rollins, US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, resigned from her office on Friday after the Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) found evidence that she lied to investigators to reportedly influence an election. The OIG referred criminal charges to the DOJ, but the Justice Department decided not to prosecute the district attorney, according to The Messenger.

The report states that "on December 16, 2022, pursuant to the Inspector General Act, 5 U.S.C. § 404(d), the OIG referred the false statements allegation to the Department for a prosecutive decision.

The OIG's investigation revealed that Rollins lied under oath during an investigation into the attorney allegedly trying to influence an election for district attorney in Suffolk County, MA last year.

Despite the findings, the OIG's report stated that "On January 6, 2023, the Department informed the OIG that it declined prosecution."

The stability of oil supplies from Kazakhstan to the global market relies on transit through Russia, the country's ambassador to the US, Yerzhan Ashikbayev, has stated. He added that any disruption to flows caused by sanctions could trigger a dire scenario.

"We proceed from the mutual interest of all parties, the interest in the stability of the global market, in the stability of supplies. This is vital both for the functioning of our [Kazakh] economy and for the entire global economy," the envoy told RIA Novosti on Thursday on the sidelines of the Trans-Caspian Forum in Washington.

When asked whether he sees any risk that sanctions could make it difficult or impossible for Kazakhstan to transit oil, the diplomat described it as "some kind of apocalyptic scenario."

Fairfax County Police found weapons and ammo inside Eric Sandow’s vehicle.
A trespasser carrying an AK-47, handgun and loads of ammo was arrested at a preschool in Virginia, as he claimed he was headed to the nearby CIA headquarters.

Eric Sandow, 32, of Florida, was taken into custody on Tuesday at the Dolley Madison preschool in McLean after he was caught sneaking onto school grounds, police said.

Officials recovered an AK-47 assault rifle with five extra magazines, a handgun with six extra magazines, as well as several boxes and bags of ammo from Sandow's vehicle.

Police said Sandow told them he was actually headed to the CIA's headquarters, in Langley, less than 2 miles away from the school.

The preschool said in a statement that Sandow asked to come into the school to use the restroom, which was denied.

Mr. Gonia opens the ad - in part directed at children - by offering "an invitation to come out..." with a long, suggestive pause, and the words "COME OUT" flashing on screen.

British Cycling is set to ban trans-identified males from being able to compete in the women's category. This comes after nine months of review and deliberations. The BBC reported that trans-identified males will now have to compete in an "open category" with men under the new participation policy.

The report noted that women's races will now be for those who are biologically female. This will prevent competitors such as Emily Bridges, a man who identifies as a woman, from competing with the British women's team.
