Disabled Vet’s Bike Gets Stolen, His Community’s Response is Amazing

Such a great story!

Published

on

Criminals aren’t exactly known for adhering to a moral code, but there are some lines even they won’t cross in a strange attempt to hold on to some form of human decency.

Unfortunately, these folks seem to be in the minority these days, especially when they start stealing from disabled veterans.

An army vet had his specialized bicycle stolen recently, and while that’s a tragic tale in and of itself, our story here actually has a happy ending.

Trending: NEVER FORGET: Bernie Was Asked to Leave Hippie Commune for Refusing to Work

Curt Payne, a Manchester, New Hampshire, resident, was permanently disabled after a near-fatal car accident in 2001.

Now he spends his time volunteering for the city and picking up trash from public places.

Payne got around on a specialized bicycle — that is, until a thief made off with the bike and left Payne without transportation.

Payne — who locals call Major — put over 900 miles on his bike last year, and thanks to the love and kindness of his local community, he might be back in business for another 900.

WBZ reported that Payne’s story went viral on social media, and some in the community came forward to show their admiration and generosity by offering to replace Payne’s stolen bicycle.

Payne’s former boss said one person is going to donate $500 and he himself would offer up $250, noting others, complete strangers, made donations as well.

Two siblings ended up raising some cash for Payne by doing a lemonade stand.

Because of these efforts, it appears Payne will have the funds needed to purchase a bike in the upcoming days.

This is a beautiful story of how communities can love and respect one another, caring for each other and being willing to help whenvever a need arises.

Here’s to hoping more of this way of thinking spreads across America and the issues that divide us lose their power.

REPORT: AOC’s Chief of Staff Was Hired After Funneling Money Through Her Boyfriend

Here we go…

This report is absolutely wild.

It is also entirely believable given the way Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempts to skirt the truth.

Apparently, AOC’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, was given his position on Alexandria’s staff after funneling cash for her campaign through her boyfriend, Riley Roberts.

“A rich guy used a PAC to pay @AOC’s boyfriend $6,000 when her campaign was running out of money. After AOC won, she gave that rich guy a job in her office. Follow me on a journey,” author Luke Thompson said.

“Last week, @AOC and her Chief of Staff @saikatc (the rich guy in question) freaked out on me when I pointed out it looked like she’d hired her boyfriend. I did some digging in the FEC. Turns out Saikat has “hired” her boyfriend, before…just not to do any actual work,” he said.

[email protected] paid Brand New Congress LLC, which @saikatc owns, for strategic consulting. @BrandNew535, the PAC Saikat ran in parallel to his LLC, turned around and paid Riley Roberts – the boyfriend – the same amount as its sole “marketing consultant”. How swampy,” he said.

“The payments to Roberts are the largest payments made by @BrandNew535 to any person or group other than Brand New Congress LLC. Oh, and Roberts doesn’t work in marketing,” Thompson said.

More from Medium:

A quick tour through AOC’s campaign expenditures reveals the extent to which Brand New Congress midwifed her campaign into existence, precisely as the FAQ described above would have it. But AOC’s campaign was different from the others backed by Brand New Congress PAC, and not simply because she won. Like other candidates, AOC paid Brand New Congress LLC for strategic consulting, in her case totaling $18,880.14. Unlike in the other cases, Brand New Congress PAC turned around and paid her boyfriend as a “marketing consultant”.

Indeed, while Brand New Congress PAC’s ten largest expenditures were paid to Brand New Congress LLC for “strategic consulting,” a sum that totaled $261,165.20 over the course of the campaign, its eleventh and twelfth largest expenditures were paid to Riley Roberts.

Brand New Congress PAC paid Roberts $3,000 on August 9th:

Eighteen days later, AOC’s campaign paid Brand New Congress LLC $6,191.32:

A month later Brand New Congress PAC then turned around and paid Riley Roberts another $3,000.

Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff is a supporter of a man who was an “ally of Adolf Hitler.”

Check it out, per Liberty Nation:

-Bose was an ally of Adolf Hitler and met with him personally in 1942.

-Bose founded the Free India Legion (FIL) made up of troops captured by Nazi Field Marshal Rommel’s Afrika Korps.

-The FIL swore an oath to Hitler and was under SS command.

-Bose teamed up with the Japanese in 1943.

-Bose was an admirer of the USSR and sought to implement its authoritarian practices in India.

Chicago Police RUIN Jussie Smollett’s Day, Officially Charge Him With Felony [Details]

He’s toast!

Things just went from bad to worse for “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

After being caught orchestrating a hate crime against himself and lying about it on national TV during an interview with Robin Roberts, Jussie has now been declared a “suspect” by the Chicago Police Department.

From Daily Wire:

Chicago law enforcement officials have officially declared actor Jussie Smollett to be a suspect in a criminal investigation on Wednesday for allegedly committing the felonious act of filing a false police report.

Chicago Police Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi tweeted: “Case Update: Jussie Smollett is now officially classified as a suspect in a criminal investigation by #ChicagoPolice for filing a false police report (Class 4 felony). Detectives are currently presenting evidence before a Cook County Grand Jury.”

Smollett has also officially been charged with a felony:

Check this out:

In 2007, Smollett “provided false information” to police after receiving a DUI.

From Daily Wire:

Jussie Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license, and providing false information to law enforcement officials in 2007, according to new reports released on Tuesday.

“Tuesday the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office confirmed that in August of 2007 Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license and providing false information to law enforcement,” CBS Chicago reported. “He was sentenced to two years probation and a choice of a fine or jail. Officials at the office could not confirm which Smollett chose. A spokesman for the Chicago Police Department said the department was already aware of the plea.”

This latest revelation follows several significant developments over the last few days, and could end up impacting how prosecutors handle potential false report charges.

Senators Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ) are both running for president. The chances that either person secures the Democrat nomination are slim, at best.

After hearing that Empire actor Jussie Smollett was the “victim” of a “hate crime,” both Booker and Harris rushed to slam the “attack” as a “modern day lynching.”

Of course, the country now knows that Smollett faked the attack and paid two brothers to orchestrate the whole thing.

Now, Harris is at a loss for words when confronted by a reporter asking about Smollett:

WATCH:

Check out Booker:

Jussie said he was baffled that people didn’t believe him. Apparently, he’s just not that good of an actor, huh?

If Smollett was being written off the show prior to this insane “hate crime,” what will happen to him now?

Will social justice warriors voice their support? Will he maybe get his own spinoff?

How about Smollett pays for his crime and serves his time? That seems like the most appropriate response.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for lefties to say they were sorry for jumping on the Jussie bandwagon, though.

They’ll hold strong togetther and attempt to steer the conversation toward “racism in America.” They’ll make it seem as if Smollett is the true victim.

Count on it.
