Bernie Rally’s for Dem Governor Candidate, But LOOK How Many Showed Up (Video)

What blue wave?

Dozens and dozens of people showed up for Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s rally featuring Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as the main speaker.

And that’s about it.

It would appear as if the auditorium is darn near entirely empty.

WATCH:

If Democrats still believe there’s a “blue wave” set to hit Congress on November 6, the clip above does little to support there claim.

Bernie Sanders and Democrat National Committee President Tom Perez are attempting to temper expectations about the “blue wave.”

They aren’t so certain anymore.

From Fox News:

“A lot of people talk about this ‘blue wave’ and stuff,” Sanders told The Hill. “I don’t believe it.”

Sanders, an independent who ran for president in 2016 as a Democrat, added: “I happen to think that on election night we’ll find a very, very close situation and maybe a handful of votes determining whether Democrats gain control of the House.”

President Trump’s overall approval rating hit 50%. That’s quite high, considering the majority of news coverage of the commander-in-chief is negative.

An even more interesting statistic should have Democrats very worried about the midterm elections.

Black support for Trump has now hit a whopping 40%.

A new study shows taxes in Florida would spike to the tune of billions of dollars if Gillum’s policies are implemented – as one could expect.

From Free Beacon:

Progressive Democrat Andrew Gillum’s tax plan proposals “would adversely impact the business climate of the state” if he is elected governor, costing Florida 155,000 jobs and $28.2 billion in economic loses per year, according to the James Madison Institute (JMI), a Tallahassee-based conservative think-tank.

Gillum recently stated that police officers are going “too far” if they pull out a gun, baton, or taser in the line of duty.

“At the time that a law enforcement official has to go to a weapon, to a gun, to a baton, to a taser, then they have already have to go too far by their very presence,” he continued. “By the very trust that they inspire in community and in society, they are supposed to be able to bring most situations to heel.”

WATCH:

Gillum’s brother is under investigation for potential voter fraud.

Less than a year before gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum publicly denounced President Donald Trump’s efforts to investigate the threat of voter fraud, Gillum’s brother, Marcus Gillum, voted in the 2016 general election in Tallahassee, Florida while a resident of Chicago, Illinois.

None of these reports look good for Gillum, but how will Floridians respond in November?

U.S. Gymnast McKayla Maroney Accuses the FBI of protecting a Pedophile in Dr. Nassar Sex Abuse Case

McKayla Maroney went on the attack as she testified about the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast McKayla Maroney went on the attack Wednesday as she testified about the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar. Maroney had harsh words for the fumbling, complicit FBI, accusing them of falsifying documents and protecting a pedophile with their failed investigation.

Appearing with fellow gymnasts Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, and Maggie Nichols before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Maroney took aim at the FBI’s inability to get to the truth and walking away allowing Dr. Nassar to continue sexually abusing hundreds of young athletes.
In her testimony (See full statement), McKayla Maroney said that she was shocked to discover that the FBI failed to fully investigate so many of the claims of sexual abuse. And she was aghast to learn that the FBI agents that did attend to her accusations made up “entirely false claims” about what she told them.

“After reading the Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) report, I was shocked and deeply disappointed at this narrative they chose to fabricate. They chose to lie about what I said and protect a serial child molester rather than protect not only me, but countless others,” Maroney told the senators before her.

Maroney went on to say that she described the abuse she suffered in minute detail, but when she was done, she felt the FBI investigators acted as if her experience was not that bad, and she felt they dismissed her testimony with a gruff “is that all?”

“Those words in itself was one of the worst moments of this entire process for me. To have my abuse be minimized and disregarded by the people who were supposed to protect me, just to feel like my abuse was not enough”

Worse, Maroney said she found out that the FBI agents didn’t even bother to write down her statement for a year and a half, and when they finally get around to doing so, they just made it all up and did not report what she actually said.

“What is the point of reporting abuse if our own FBI agents are going to take it upon themselves to bury that report in a drawer,” she added. “They had legal, legitimate evidence of child abuse and did nothing.”

“Let’s be honest,” Maroney said accusingly, “by not taking immediate action from my report, they allowed a child molester to go free for more than a year, and this inaction directly allowed Nassar’s abuse to continue.

The FBI eventually fired Indianapolis field office supervisory special agent Michael Langeman who the agency finally determined had utterly mishandled the investigation into the sex abuse allegations. More recently, in July Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz that blasted Indianapolis agency chief W. Jay Abbott for his failure to respond to the allegations “with the urgency that the allegations required.”

More than 70 young gymnasts in ages ranging from 12 to 19 continued to suffer sexual abuse after the FBI’s failed investigation into the allegations.

Airline Kicks Family Off Flight After Toddler Removes Mask During Asthma Attack

Unbelievable.

Published

on

At times, it is easy to see why some of us are losing faith in humanity as a whole.

Somewhere in the mix, we’ve all turned cold and calculated.  Mathematically prepared for litigation at all times.  We’re robotic in our understanding of the rules and consequences, but all the while shunning common sense and the idea that decency often depends on extenuating circumstances.

Such was the case this week on an American Airlines flight.

A mother and her 2-year-old son were forced to deplane an American Airlines flight on Monday after the child would not keep a mask on.

Amanda Pendarvis posted to her Instagram story that she, her young son and her mother were removed from the flight. Pendarvis said her son was having an asthma attack at the time.

Flight 1284 returned to its gate at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport before departing for Colorado after the party refused to “comply with crew member instructions to remain seated while on an active taxiway and to wear face coverings securely over their nose and mouth,” American Airlines said in a statement to FOX Business.

The company attempted to shift the blame in a statement.

The airline said crew members were never made aware that the child was having an asthma attack or issues breathing. Additionally, the passengers were not addressed for failure to comply with face-covering requirements at any point while administering treatment, according to the carrier.

The move comes amid a heated national debate on COVID-19 precautions, and among a populace who is growing ever more irate with the idea of remaining masked indefinitely.
