Prosecutors in Franklin Township, New Jersey, say that an 81-year-old man was attacked inside a supermarket because he was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat.

Somerset County Prosecutor Michael Robertson reports that a Franklin Township man was physically assaulted at a local Shop Rite on Monday afternoon, according to New York’s CBS affiliate.

“The incident reportedly began after the victim was confronted about the red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat he was wearing,” Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson said.

Prosecutors did not offer any descriptions of the attacker nor note if the incident was caught on surveillance video.

Now, two days after the incident, a 19-year-old teen has been charged with the attack.

According to MyNewJersey:

Ryan M. Salvagno is charged with assault, a disorderly persons offense, and harassment, a petty disorderly persons offense, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office announced on Wednesday. He was arrested the same day.

Police add that the surveillance video in the store shows the kid yelling at the old man and when the victim turned to walk away, that is when the kid attacked:

Salvagno then took the victim by the arm and threw him to the ground, tipping over the victim’s cart of groceries and ultimately throwing the hat to the side, authorities said.

The perp is now scheduled for arraignment on March 14.

Police have asked anyone with information to contact the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit at (908) 231-7100, the Franklin Township Police Department at (732) 873-5533, or can use the STOPit app.

US Embassy in Iraq Nearly Leveled by Rocket as Iran Tensions Soar

Mike Pompeo’s recent warning to US staff in the region is looking more prophetic by the minute.

Last week’s warning to US workers in Iraq could not have come a moment too soon, apparently. Due to increasingly hostile actions by the government of Iran, US officials last week demanded that non-essential American personnel leave the country of Iraq for feat that the regime in Tehran would soon launch a series of attacks.  As it turns out, this was far more prophetic than anyone could have imagined because, just days later, a rocket has nearly leveled the US Embassy in Baghdad. A rocket was fired into the Iraqi capital Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone, which houses government buildings and diplomatic missions, on Sunday night, falling near the U.S. Embassy but causing no casualties, the Iraqi military said. The attack came two weeks after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Iraqi leaders during a surprise visit to Baghdad that if they failed to keep in check Iran-backed militias, which are expanding their power in Iraq and now form part of its security apparatus, the United States would respond with force. His visit came after U.S. intelligence showed Iran-backed Shi’ite militias positioning rockets near bases housing U.S. forces, according to two Iraqi security sources. There have been no claims of responsibility as of yet for the attack. Saudi Arabian officials have linked two recent attacks on their oil industry to Iran; one aerial drone attack on an oil pipeline, and a sophisticated underwater attack using makeshift torpedoes that damaged four ships. US President Donald Trump is hoping to stay out of conflict with Iran, but has warned that any action taken by the US will be swift and stern.

Adam Schiff Predictably Pounces on Republican’s Call for Impeachment

While the tide may be turning in Congress, Nancy Pelosi continues to stonewall her own constituents.

Adam Schiff

As the dysfunction in DC reaches dire new heights, some who were previously loyal to President Trump have taken a turn. On the left, the idea of impeachment has been around since before Donald Trump even took office.  The simple fact that he was running for President was enough to have democrats working toward some sort of “back up plan” to oust him should he win. And when he did, the entirety of the left side of the aisle went up in flames. Now after two years of Trump in the Oval Office, the democrats are still trying to remove him, or nullify the results of the 2016 election by casting fears of Russian meddling into the public realm. One of the loudest voices in this anti-Presidential fracas has been Adam Schiff, who today latched onto a surprising republican call for impeachment. Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said his House of Representatives colleague Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) declaring President Donald Trump had engaged in “impeachable conduct” was courageous. Schiff said, “What the speaker has referred to and I have as well is can impeachment be successful in the Senate? We see no signs of that yet. I respect what Justin Amash is doing has said he showed more courage than any other Republican in the House or Senate. But what may be pushing us in the direction of impeachment in any event has less to do with Justin Amash but more the administration is engaging in a maximum obstructionism campaign.” Amash became the first prominent republican to publicly state his belief that Donald Trump has engaged in “impeachable” offenses. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has rebuked any and all talk of impeachment, furthering infuriating an already hysterical democratic base.
