Gabby Petito’s Mother Slams Laundrie Attorney After Horrific Autopsy Find

Western Journal

Published

on

Gabby Petito’s mother, Nichole Schmidt, had four simple words to tell the Laundrie family attorney on Wednesday.

“His words are garbage,” she wrote in a text message. “Keep talking.”

Schmidt’s cutting remark was in response to a recent statement issued by the attorney, Steve Bertolino.

“While Brian Laundrie is currently charged with the unauthorized use of a debit card belonging to Gabby, Brian is only considered a person of interest in relation to Gabby Petito’s demise,” Bertolino wrote according to WFLA.

“At this time Brian is still missing, and when he is located, we will address the pending fraud charge against him.”

This news follows the release of Gabby Petito’s autopsy results on Tuesday.

“We hereby find the cause and manner of death to be: the cause, death by strangulation, and manner is homicide,” Teton County, Wyoming, Coroner Dr. Brent Blue said.

“By Wyoming state statute, no other information will be released about the autopsy.”

Brian Laundrie’s guilt in the case has been assumed by many, given that, although the two went together on a camping trip, only Laundrie returned shortly before going missing himself.

As was mentioned by Bertolino, Laundrie has also been charged with the unauthorized use of Gabby Petito’s debit card, further pointing to his possible guilt in her homicide.

If placed in Schmidt’s shoes, any parent could’ve had the same reaction she did.

However, it’s important to note that Brian Laundrie has a right to a presumption of innocence — no matter how damning the circumstantial evidence provided thus far may appear to be.

As uncomfortable as Bertolino’s words are, he is doing what any good attorney would do if placed in the same situation, defending his client’s rights.

If and when Brian Laundrie is apprehended, it would certainly be easy to demand he faces immediate justice.

But, the presumption of innocence is the essential bedrock of the American justice system and must be protected at great cost.

Our founders certainly believed so — even John Adams, before becoming president, once provided legal defense for British troops at the center of the Boston massacre.

Brian Laundrie, no matter how guilty or innocent he may be, has a legal right to the same defense.

Biden Lies 2nd Time in 1 Week on National TV, Tells Debunked Amtrak Story for 4th Time

Western Journal

Published

on

While President Joe Biden’s gaffes are always concerning to watch, they usually just resemble an elderly man losing his bearings as Father Time continues to take his toll.

Lately, though, Biden has traded those gaffes for blatant lying on national television.

On Wednesday, Biden repeated a debunked story about an Amtrack employee named Angelo Negri, with whom he claimed to have had a conversation.

“Ang came up to me one day when I was … when they just had announced that I had flown 1 million … some ‘x’ number of miles on Air Force aircraft,” Biden said.

“And Ang comes up, and I’m getting in the car and he goes, ‘Joey baby … you know how many miles you did Amtrak?’ And I said, ‘No, Ang, I don’t have any idea pal.’

“He said, ‘Let me tell you, we were at the retirement dinner … we added it up. You averaged … 121 days a year … you’ve traveled over 2 million miles, Joe. I don’t wanna hear any more about the Air Force.'”

Biden said Negri told him this statistic “seven years into” his vice presidency, which would have been around 2015. According to Negri’s obituary, he retired from Amtrak in 1993 and died in 2014.

The first time Biden told this bizarre, factually incorrect story was in May. At that time, Biden claimed Negri told him he had traveled 1,515,000 miles on Amtrak, and he said the conversation happened in fourth of fifth year of his vice presidency.

Biden retold the story in June, but it was hardly even understandable that time as Biden stumbled through it.

At this point, it seems important to mention that Biden’s mother, who he claims to have been visiting in either 2014, 2015 or 2017 depending on the iteration, died in 2010. This casts even further doubt on the validity of Biden’s anecdote.

Biden told the story for a third time during a September meeting with United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson. This was the first time he changed the number of miles he supposedly traveled on Amtrak from 1.5 million to 2 million.

And it all culminated on Wednesday with Biden’s fourth iteration of the story.

Do you think Biden is purposely lying to the American people?

There are really only two probable explanations for Biden’s repeated insistence on telling this debunked story. First, it could be that Biden is experiencing a cognitive decline causing him confusion, but the Democratic establishment has ensured us that is not the case.

The only other explanation for Biden telling a factually incorrect story is that he is lying to the American people. If that is the case, it would not even be the first time this week Biden has done so.

During the 2021 State and National Teachers of the Year event at the White House on Monday, Biden said he had been “involved in the civil rights movement.”

According to a tweet from The Intercept, Biden made similar claims as far back as 1987. He later redacted the claims and said he was “not an activist” during the movement, only to start making them again recently.

Biden’s embarrassing faux pas are bad enough, but his blatant lying adds a whole new level of concern for the country.

Biden Knowingly Lies on National TV About His Past During MLK Memorial Event

Western Journal

Published

on

David Duke

On Thursday, President Joe Biden spoke in front of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington. He used the opportunity to repeat a lie about his past.

The expressed purpose of the speech was to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the official declaration of the memorial, according to a White House transcript. Instead, Biden subtly and dishonestly tried to make the event about himself.

At one point in the speech, Biden used the event to make his case against election integrity laws.

“Today, the right to vote and the rule of law are under unrelenting assault from Republican governors, attorneys general, secretaries of state, state legislators,” he said. “And they’re following my predecessor — the last president — into a deep, deep black hole and abyss.”

This in and of itself is insulting to King. By comparing voter ID requirements for every race to legitimate segregation during MLK’s life, Biden is cheapening the work real civil rights leaders have accomplished.

Right after that, the president repeated the lie that he was “involved” in the civil rights movement during his younger days.



Biden claimed as far back as 1987 that he had marched in the civil rights movement, according to The Intercept. He later walked back that claim and said he was “concerned” with the movement but was not an “activist.”

Obviously, being concerned about something does not mean you are really “involved” in it. I’m concerned every time I watch a Virginia Tech football game, but that doesn’t make me a player.

But as soon as it became politically convenient, Biden decided to go back to his same old lies.

The fact that he has admitted this claim is fabricated before and yet continues to repeat it cannot be described as anything other than deliberate lying, and that behavior is disrespectful during an event meant to honor MLK.

This is the second time this week Biden has told the exact same lie. He first made the claim on Monday during the State and National Teachers of the Year event.

During another speech on Wednesday, Biden told another debunked story about Amtrak. He recalled a conversation he had with an Amtrak employee named Angelo Negri “seven years into” his vice presidency, but Negri died before that time.

The president has told that same story three other times, and it has been debunked every single time. Yet he continues to repeat the lies.

At least three times this week, Biden has publicly said something that is certifiably false. He is either lying or confused, neither of which is particularly encouraging for the country.
