Lawyer Who Helped Sandmann Score CNN Settlement Tells Rittenhouse to Go for the Big Fish: Biden Himself

Western Journal

In 2018, Nick Sandmann found himself the subject of national scorn after a selectively edited clip of him smiling awkwardly while a Native American activist banged a drum in front of him amid a boisterous confrontation between a number of parties outside the Washington Monument following the March for Life.

Sandmann, sporting a MAGA hat along with many of his fellow Covington High School students, was portrayed by a number of prominent outlets as having taunted the activist. Those outlets absolutely should have known better than to lift their reporting from a short clip that went viral on Twitter.

Several of these outlets have had to pay sorely for their bad reporting ever since — and Sandmann is set for life.

In his case, it was the establishment media complex, taking cues from outraged Twitter mobs, that spun the narrative implying Sandmann was something he was not.

In the case of Kyle Rittenhouse, however, who was portrayed by the establishment media as a white supremacist militia member after shooting three rioters in self-defense as Kenosha burned following Black Lives Matter protests in 2020, the inevitable defamation suits will likely take aim at an even bigger target: the President of the United States.

Todd McMurtry, who helped Sandman reach a hefty defamation settlement with CNN, told Fox News last week that he thinks Rittenhouse may very well have a solid case against now-President Joe Biden, who used the teenager’s image and implied he was a white supremacist during the 2020 campaign.

Not only did Biden suggest that Rittenhouse was a white supremacist on CNN shortly after the teenager shot three rioters in self-defense in fiery riots last year, the candidate also included an image of Kyle with his AR-15-style rifle in a video he tweeted out as part of a montage of white nationalists and Proud Boys in Charlottesville and elsewhere, along with audio of Chris Wallace asking Trump to disavow white supremacists.


The suggestion was far from subtle — Rittenhouse was being portrayed as a white supremacist by a man running for president.

And when Rittenhouse was found not guilty by a jury in Kenosha on felony homicide and attempted homicide charges on Nov. 19 after it had already been exhaustively established that he in no way held to white supremacist ideology, it was a sitting president who had egg all over his face.

“What you take from that tweet is that Kyle Rittenhouse was using his rifle and engaging in White supremacist misconduct so it’s actionable,” McMurtry said, adding that such a case wasn’t “necessarily going to win, but it’s actionable.”

The attorney also noted that as Biden was not yet president at the time, he wouldn’t be able to benefit from any kind of executive or congressional immunity.

Fox notes that Rittenhouse’s mother, Wendy, accused the president of slandering her son “for votes.”

“I was so angry for a while at him and what he did to my son. He defamed him,” she said during an appearance on “Hannity” earlier this month.

Rittenhouse himself pretty handily dismantled Biden’s brazen suggestion that he was a racist during his own lengthy sit-down with Fox’s Tucker Carlson last week.

“Mr. President, if I could say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial and understand the facts before you make a statement,” the teenager said, going so far as to describe it as “actual malice, defaming my character, for him to say something like that.”

He is most certainly not wrong.

President Biden, like so many of his own party members, wasn’t above leveraging wrongful charges brought against a teenager who defended his own life using a firearm he was lawfully allowed to carry after he showed up to help protect private property and administer aid during a violent protest that the then-candidate was criticized for being too slow to condemn.

All of this was to accuse his rival, then-President Trump, of refusing to disavow white supremacy — something Trump has done on multiple occasions and in no uncertain terms, by the way.

As Carlson noted to Rittenhouse, it is “no small thing” to be called a virulent racist who believes in the kind of disgusting ideology that has led to millions of deaths at the hands of psychotic tyrants. In reality, neither Rittenhouse nor the millions of American voters the left loves to slander with the same term hold to those beliefs.

Biden may be subject to a lawsuit — but he and everyone else who abuses this very serious accusation ought to be held accountable in the eyes of the entire public at large for their blatant lies on a much bigger scale if we have any chance of scraping the state of American discourse up from the low estate to which it has plummeted.

Americans Unleash on Biden After Encountering Bare Shelves at Grocery Stores Across Country

Western Journal

Published

President Joe Biden’s supply chain crisis has been raging for some time, and it is now wreaking havoc on Americans trying to live their everyday lives.

According to Fox News, a growing number of Americans are experiencing massive shortages at their local grocery stores, and they are directing their ire at Biden because of it.

Many Twitter users began using the hashtag #BareShelvesBiden to showcase the precarious situations at their local stores.

Some users told stories of the lengths they had to go to in order to find seemingly basic food items.

“This was the 2nd store we went to looking for bagels,” one user said. “Found the bagels but zero — ZERO — plain cream cheese. If you want Kraft parmesan cheese or Top Ramen, you’re pretty much out of luck.”

Even CNBC senior White House correspondent Kayla Tausche compared the situation to the apocalypse, which is surprising coming from an employee of a leftist establishment media outlet.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms noticed the problem too, albeit only through the third party she hired to shop for her. She suggested that the supply shortages were a localized issue.

Some commenters felt Bottoms was trying to insinuate that southwest Atlanta was having problems because it is a lower-income area. If that was her intention, residents from other portions of Atlanta and surrounding areas quickly rebutted the claim.

By the looks of it, Biden’s supply chain crisis is affecting almost everyone, regardless of income or political affiliation.

As a general rule, it is not a good development for a president when his failures start to greatly affect the lives of everyday Americans.

Will supply chain issues hurt Democrats in the midterm elections?

While many less politically inclined citizens may be willing to overlook foreign policy issues or government spending excesses, they are much less likely to ignore their own inability to buy the food they want.

In a time where Biden’s approval is tanking and Democrats are panicking about the upcoming midterm elections, empty grocery store shelves are just another point in a long list of problems for the Biden administration.

Soros-Backed Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Indicted on 4 Federal Charges

Western Journal

immigration

On Thursday, a federal grand jury chose to indict Baltimore’s top prosecutor on four counts.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby now faces charges of perjury and “making false mortgage applications in the purchase of two Florida vacation homes,” the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland told The Associated Press.

The charges are related to Mosby’s alleged lies about “meeting qualifications for coronavirus-related distributions from a city retirement plan in 2020.”

Prosecutors say Mosby lied on multiple mortgage application forms when she attempted to buy homes in Kissimmee, Florida, and Long Boat Key, Florida.

Mosby first entered the spotlight in 2015 during the infamous Baltimore riots following the death of Freddie Gray.

The openly progressive prosecutor pursued charges against the six police officers involved in Gray’s death.

In the end, none of the officers were convicted.

Mosby has long been criticized for her progressive approach.

Under her tenure in Baltimore, which began in 2015, the number of murders, rapes, aggravated assaults, burglaries and robberies all rose, according to an Oct. 27, 2020, report from The Heritage Foundation.

Most recently, Mosby faced criticism in November for defending Joseph Rosenbaum, the convicted sex offender who was shot while allegedly attempting to murder Kyle Rittenhouse during the Kenosha, Wisconsin, racial justice riots of 2020.

This most recent federal indictment comes months after a federal investigation into her affairs was first announced.

Both Mosby and her husband Nick Mosby, the president of the Baltimore City Council, faced various accusations in March of 2021 related to their alleged illicit use of campaign funds.

The duo was purportedly using campaign funds to pay off personal legal fees and travel expenses.

A federal probe was issued into their financial dealings at the time.

The accusations and alleged discrepancies did not stop at the campaign funds, however.

An additional federal subpoena had been issued to two churches in order to investigate whether Nick Mosby had been making financial contributions to either institution.

Both Mosbys were reportedly issued a lien by the IRS following three full years of unpaid taxes on their property. It is unknown if that lien was paid.

The two perjury counts carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison and the two mortgage-related offenses could carry with them a maximum of 30 years in prison each, according to the AP.
