A transgender activist in Jackson, Michigan, has been arrested for burning down her own home to gain sympathy and media attention because she feared gay victimhood had disappeared from the news in her area.

Police now say the locally celebrated gay activist has been charged with a fake hate crime for the 2017 act of arson.

She is even accused of killing the five pets that died in the flames.

Nikki Joly, a well-known transgender activist in Jackson, Michigan, was arrested recently and charged with arson and for filing a fake hate crimes report after an investigation revealed she set fire to her own home in 2017, the Detroit News reported.

The 54-year-old Joly was praised by the city’s elite for her work for gays in Jackson.

As the paper reported:

In the prior six months, he helped open the city’s first gay community center, organized the first gay festival and, after 18 years of failed attempts, helped lead a bruising battle for an ordinance that prohibits discrimination against gays.

For his efforts, a local paper named him the Citizen of the Year.

But in 2017 Joly’s house was set aflame and after an investigation, police ended up arresting Joly for the arson.

The arrest embarrassed the local bigwigs who supporter the gay activist.

“It’s embarrassing,” said Travis Trombley, a gay resident who fought for the ordinance. “How do you do it to the community you have put so much effort into helping?”

According to police, Joly may have set fire to the home because the “gay issue” had died down after the city passed a local non-discrimination rule. Police said the home was set ablaze to cause sympathy for Joly and to fool people into feeling that gays were still being attacked in Jackson.

To recap, things were going great for gays in Jackson so this gay activist had to create a fake hate crime to keep the outrage machine running.

Naturally, Joly was all over the news ginning up sympathy right after the blaze.

But now some people who donated to help Joly in the wake of the fire are confused and angry and want their money back, especially after a highly detailed police report was published showing that police had a LOT of evidence that Joly set the fire.

New Travel Restrictions Arrive Months After Biden Bashed Trump for Same Thing

It’s like they’ve forgotten all about what they said when they were trying to insult Trump.

Oh the hypocrisy of the liberal left; does it know no bounds?

While President Joe Biden hasn’t been quite a contradictory as some of the other high-level hypocrites in his party, it appears that this is only because he really hasn’t done anything as Commander in Chief.  The border crisis remains a horrid, humanitarian stain on our nation.  Biden-flation continues to threaten the all-important consumer spending season surrounding Christmas.  Russia continues to act with impunity the world over.

It’s hard to be a hypocrite when all you do is sit idly by, right?

But now, a worrisome new strain of COVID-19 has threatened to take the world by storm, and Biden’s work to curb the spread here in the US appears to be eerily similar to actions that he once lambasted Donald Trump for taking.

President Joe Biden has imposed travel restrictions into the United States due to coronavirus fears despite previously slamming former President Trump as xenophobic for doing the same thing in 2020.

“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted as a presidential candidate last year the day after Trump imposed travel restrictions from several countries including China into the United States. “We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”

And he even doubled down on this sentiment:

Biden later attempted to walk back the xenophobic comment and claimed during a debate that he was making a broad point about xenophobia and not directly referring to the travel ban.

“A wall will not stop the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted in March of 2020. “Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it. This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet — and we need a plan to combat it.”

One has to wonder, if Joe Biden was that oblivious about the needs of the nation back when he was insulting Donald Trump’s leadership, how is he possibly going to right the nation’s wrongs while in power?

California City Votes to Become ‘Constitutional Republic’, Will Not Adhere to COVID Rules

WHOA!

Published

on

There are plenty of ways in which companies and municipalities are working to push back against the government’s highly criticized COVID-19 mandates, and one town in California has just taken perhaps the largest step toward freedom that we’ve seen yet.

In a move that was born out of a need to keep the state government from becoming an authoritarian brute, the city of Oroville, California has declared itself a sovereign “constitutional republic”.

The city council in Oroville, located at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills about 90 miles from the capital of Sacramento, adopted a resolution this week stating it would oppose state and federal orders it deems to be government overreach.

Oroville leaders said the designation was a way of affirming the city’s values and pushing back against state rules it doesn’t agree with, although a legal expert said the designation was merely a gesture and did not grant the city any new authority.

The move had its naysayers, of course.

But the city’s declaration does not shield it from following federal and state laws, said Lisa Pruitt, a rural law expert at the University of California, Davis, who said it was not clear what the designation meant.

“A municipality cannot unilaterally declare itself not subject to the laws of the state of California,” Pruitt said. “Whatever they mean by constitutional republic you can’t say hocus pocus and make it happen.”

Despite the pushback, the measure passed in a vote of 6-1, and there is little doubt that legal challenges will be coming in the not-so-distant future.
