Proposed 2016 Trump Running Mate ASSAULTED by Husband, Says Report

In addition to the physical assault, she endured much, much more.

Joni Ernst

For better or worse, the 2016 presidential election in the United States was unprecedented in many ways.

On the surface, our nation elected its first President who had neither held public office or served in the military, and only our second President with a bonafide Hollywood career behind him.

We also witnessed free speech at its finest, with groups such as Wikileaks risking it all to show the American people the troubling underbelly of democratic diva Hillary Clinton, helping the nation to make its choice, loud and clear.

But, brewing behind all that is a wild tale of one of President Trump’s list of potential running mates, and an abusive spouse.

Years before her divorce, U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst was assaulted by her husband after she confronted him about his relationship with their daughter’s babysitter, she wrote in court filings.

Ernst, a Republican who represents Iowa, said that during her 26-year marriage with Gail Ernst, she was the victim of verbal and mental abuse and a physical assault after which a victim’s advocate wanted to take her to a hospital, she wrote in public records connected to their divorce.

“Gail has been very cruel,” she wrote. “This has been an extremely painful journey.”

Ernst in August announced through a brief statement that she and Gail Ernst were divorcing. The divorce was finalized this month.

In addition to the physical assault, Ernst endured much, much more.

In an affidavit in October, Joni Ernst described a history of emotional abuse that included her husband belittling her and becoming angry when she achieved her goals. She was interviewed by then-candidate Donald Trump to run for vice president, but she turned him down, describing the move as not the right thing for her or her family, she said.

We can be thankful now that Ernst has removed herself from the situation, but her delay demonstrates a major issue in the world today, where women do not always feel safe speaking out against their abusers.

WATCH: Enormous, 32,000 MPH Fireball Illuminates Sky Over North Carolina

The space rock put on one heck of a show.

Given all the tumult and trouble that we have here in the United States, it can be difficult at times to keep ourselves from becoming despondent, perturbed, or even scared for the future.

We are living through a time of political upheaval the likes of which no living American can remember.  Sure, the 1960’s were wild, but what we’re seeing today is far more reminiscent of the 1860’s.

This, combined with the threats posed by international terror, Russia, China, the pandemic, and more, is enough to keep us worried for decades to come.

But, we must never forget that we’re also on a giant rock hurtling through space, and there are far more troubling dangers out there in the universe, waiting to get to us.

The citizens of North Carolina were reminded of that this weekend. 

The American Meteor Society shared video taken Friday from the porch of a home in Rowland Pond, North Carolina, showing a massive fireball fall from the sky.

NASA says the fireball fell over the North Carolina coast at around 7:40 p.m. and was one of at least five fireballs seen over the U.S. in the same night.

Fireballs are bright meteors categorized as brighter than the planet Venus, according to the society, a nonprofit that monitors meteors.

The video was simply stunning.

The fireball was witnessed by over 80 people, and was estimated to be moving at 32,000 miles per hour when it was captured on tape.

State Police Force Faces Mass Resignations Over Vaccine Mandate

That can’t be good…

Published

on

Americans these days appear to be more concerned than ever with their bodily sovereignty, and this could create an enormous shift in the way that some folks choose their careers.

In particular, the increase in vaccine mandates among certain professions has driven a number of American workers to seek new employment, including a number of healthcare workers in New York State.  In fact, the exodus in NYC could be so significant that the National Guard and foreign doctors may need to be brought in to fill the gap.

Meanwhile, in neighboring Massachusetts, it’s the police force that could soon be gutted.

The State Police Association of Massachusetts (SPAM) said dozens of troopers have submitted their resignation papers as a result of the state’s COVID vaccine mandate.

The state is requiring all executive department employees to show proof of vaccination by October 17, or risk losing their jobs.

The Union released a statement in which they suggested that these officers would seek employment in places with “reasonable” practices instead.

To date, dozens of troopers have already submitted their resignation paperwork, some of whom plan to return to other departments offering reasonable alternatives such as mask wearing and regular testing.  The State Police are already critically short staffed and acknowledged this by the unprecedented moves which took troopers from specialty units that investigate homicides, terrorism, computer crimes, arsons, gangs, narcotics, and human trafficking, and returned them to uniformed patrol.

The debate over vaccine mandates has been a heated one here in the United States, and with the federal government now solidly pushing for more of these regulations to go into place, there is no end in sight for the argument.
