A Black Lives Matter supporter and anti-police activist who is running for mayor of Atlanta was shocked when his Mercedes was stolen right in front of him as he spoke to friends on the street.

Liberal city council member Antonio Brown had pulled over to talk to someone but as he stood there talking, a group of teens jumped into his car and drove off.

Brown later insisted that the crooks were stuck in “generational poverty” and then whined that the kids should have been in school.

Even though Brown is running for mayor, he is under indictment on charges of wire fraud, mail fraud, bank fraud involving the purchase of the Mercedes C300, as well as a Range Rover.

Brown told Fox5 that four boys, ages 7 to 11-years-old, drove off in his car even as he was standing outside of it, talking to community activist Ben Norman.

“We tried to go there and maybe try to get the kid out of the car. So, I’m like, what do you do to a kid, right?” Norman told the media. “He had already starting figuring out…I mean they had plans, they knew what they were going to do. He hit the gas and he pulled out, peeled out, and took off.”

“One kid was in the driver’s seat,” Brown added. “Ben attempted to open the door to get him out of the car. He fought with Ben. I then engaged and tried to get him out of the car. The three other kids were trying to figure out how to get in the car or stay out of the car. He started to hit on the gas. Ben let go.”

“As he started to speed up, and I knew that if I had not let go, I knew I probably could have killed myself because he was going so fast, I would have started to tumble,” he said. “And I would have hurt him.”

The car was found abandoned later and no arrests were made.

“The reality is, it’s extremely unfortunate because, why aren’t they in school? I mean, these are little kids that I would never had thought in a million years would be attempting to steal my vehicle,” Brown exclaimed. “They live in this generational poverty right now.”

“These are kids that are coming from nothing and they see an opportunity of a Mercedes sitting in front of them,” he said.

PUTIN POKES THE BEAR: Russian Troops Move Toward Ukraine as World Warns

There may be no peaceful end to this situation.

Published

While it has long been understood that Vladimir Putin is a figure representing chaos on the world’s stage, (whether covertly or proudly), the sort of trouble that he’s stirring up this week won’t likely have a peaceful end.

Putin appears hellbent on finding a way and a reason to take Ukraine back under Russian control.  The tiny nation, rich in natural gas and other resources, is far too minuscule to put up a fight, and so it will be up to the rest of the world to deter the Kremlin.

And despite a number of unmistakable warnings, Putin appears unfazed.

Russia is a sending an unspecified number of troops from the country’s far east to Belarus for major war games, officials said Tuesday, a deployment that will further beef up Russian military presence near Ukraine amid Western fears of a planned invasion.

Amid the soaring tensions, the White House warned that Russia could attack its neighbor at “any point,” while the U.K. delivered a batch of anti-tank weapons to Ukraine.

Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin said the joint drills with Belarus would involve practicing a joint response to external threats.

Ukrainian officials have warned that Russia could launch an attack on Ukraine from several directions, including from its ally Belarus.

As for any attempts to stop the Russian invasion?  They were squashed when a well-known Putin mouthpiece announced on television that any push to keep Putin from getting what he wants could end in the opposition being turned into “radioactive dust”.

Starbucks Bucks Biden’s Vaccine Mandate in Latest Blow to Agenda

WOW!

Published

on

Joe Biden has not been having the smoothest first year in office, that’s for certain, and things are only getting a little rougher as the days go on.

Currently, one of the largest failures that the administration is dealing with comes from the constitutionality of their vaccine mandate.  Or, rather, it’s lack of constitutionality, as determined by the Supreme Court of the US.

And now, even one of the “wokest” companies in the nation can’t back the plan.

Employees at Starbucks are no longer required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Roughly a week after the Supreme Court reversed President’s Biden workplace vaccine mandate, the coffee chain is following suit, according to The Associated Press.

“We respect the Court’s ruling and will comply,” Starbucks Chief Operating Officer John Culver wrote in a memo to employees.

Last week, the Supreme Court issued mixed rulings in a pair of cases challenging Biden administration COVID-19 vaccine mandates, allowing the requirement for certain health care workers to go into effect while blocking enforcement of a mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees.

Then came the lip service.

“I want to emphasize that we continue to believe strongly in the spirit and intent of the mandate,” Culver added. “Thank you to the more than 90 percent of partners who have already disclosed their vaccination status, and to the vast majority who are now fully vaccinated.”

With Starbucks opting out, there are no doubt other mega-corporations who will be following suit.
