WATCH: Man Who Handmade 58 Wooden Crosses to Honor Las Vegas Victims Returns One Year Later

Published

on

October 1st marked one year since the horrific and unexplained massacre at the Route 66 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.

You may have missed the anniversary this week amid all the noise about Kavanaugh, and it’s certainly been hard to pay attention to anything else, the way that story has dominated the news cycle.

But the families of the victims and many other Americans still took time out of their day on Monday to honor the lives lost on that fateful, unimaginably awful day.

One man who joined those mourning was Illinois carpenter Greg Zanis, whose humble contribution to the efforts to memorialize the Las Vegas victims last year made national news.

Zanis had traveled from Illinois with 58 hand-crafted wooden crosses, one for each victim, which were placed below the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign.

These crosses have now been placed permanently in a museum, but to commemorate the one-year anniversary, Zanis made a trip back to Vegas: with 58 new crosses.

Last year, Greg Zanis with Crosses For Losses, made 58 handmade crosses for those that were lost on 1 October. These…

Western Journal reports:

As he places the crosses at the memorial site, he said it’s all he can do not to cry.

Zanis wants the Las Vegas community to know that they are remembered, that each name on the cross is important.

“Just doing it for the families to show that we do care,” Zanis told KVVU-TV. “It’s been a year and just imagine what a family’s gone through.”

Such a beautiful and humbling act.

While so many Americans seem to be at each other’s throats these days, the Las Vegas shooting has already become a distant memory in our lightning-quick news cycle.

But for the families of the victims, their journey through grief is just beginning. God bless this man for taking the time to consider their suffering and serve them in this touching way.

Woman Rips MAGA Hat From Man’s Head, Then Claims SHE Is the Victim [Details]

How in the world does she figure?

If a person snatches the MAGA hat from your head, who is at fault? That should be rhetorical.

According to a woman who did just that, she is the victim.

It’s getting to the point where you really can’t even make this stuff up anymore.

From Yahoo:

A woman who ripped off a man’s “Make America Great Again” hat at a Mexican restaurant says she wanted retribution for years of discrimination.

On Feb. 15th, Bryton Turner was eating at Casa Vallarta Mexican Restaurant in Falmouth, Mass., when a Brazilian woman, not being named by police, snatched off his red MAGA hat.

“Went out with some friends trying to enjoy some dinner and drinks when this ignoramus randomly tried to hit my hat off and started yelling at me…” Turner wrote on Facebook, sharing two videos. “I wasn’t going to press charges but in front of four cops she did it again so now she’s going to jail.”

[…]

Yahoo Lifestyle couldn’t reach the woman for comment. “I had a little bit to drink maybe that’s the reason that I couldn’t walk away but being discriminated for so many times in my life, I just had to stand up for myself,” she told Boston 25 News. “He’s not a victim. I am the victim. I have been bullied, OK?”

Check out the video posted by Bryton Turner, showing the woman snatching his hat…

Despite taking the time to fly to the Middle East to spend Christmas with the troops, President Trump and First Lady Melania were mocked by CNN and the like.

Go figure, right?

Melania wore the wrong boots.

Donald, well, was Donald. That’s always enough to set the MSM off in and of itself.

The worst part is that CNN blasted 45 for signing MAGA hats for the troops despite there being no rule against it.

What’s worse is that Obama signed Obama-type stuff for the troops back in the day, and the mainstream media was dead silent.

There’s a word for that.

It’s called hypocrisy.

From Daily Wire:

As noted by Joe Concha at The Hill, “The worst kind of bias is the bias of omission. And what’s missing from this report is precedent as it pertains to President Obama who, as a candidate, signed memorabilia for U.S. service members overseas in July 2008. Not a hint of criticism followed.”

SFGate reported on the Obama trip to Afghanistan at the time, though they never highlighted the signing of memorabilia by Mr. Obama.

Michelle did it, too:

CNN owes Trump a big apology.

Ocasio-Cortez Trolled for the Second Time After NEW Billboard Goes Up In NYC

And boom goes the dynamite!

Self-described Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fought hard to make sure Amazon would not build a new headquarters in New York.

She celebrated after the company decided to pull out.

A couple of days ago, a billboard went up in Times Square lambasting the freshman lawmaker for her actions.

LOOK:

AOC saw the billboard.

She figured she had to respond.

She sent a tweet calling the sign “wack”:

The people behind the billboard saw AOC’s response.

They decided to go after her one more time…

Check this out, per Daily Wire:

Job Creators Network put up a second billboard that stated: “Hey AOC, Saw your wack tweet.”

LOOK:

The criticism of Ocasio-Cortez “comes after Ocasio-Cortez vigorously defended her role in sinking Amazon’s move to New York City on Tuesday in the face of bipartisan criticism,” Fox News reported. “The freshman Democratic New York congresswoman has faced days of criticism from normally friendly media voices and fellow Democrats over her role in Amazon’s decision to pull back from building a $2.5 billion campus in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens.”

New York City Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio had to correct Ocasio-Cortez for incorrectly thinking that “the $3 billion in tax breaks that were going to go to Amazon still existed after Amazon pulled out of NYC,” The Daily Wire reported.

And boom goes the dynamite!

Ocasio-Cortez believes she was born “privileged.”

Because she was born in the USA? Because she was born into wealth?

Nope. It’s ecause she was born straight.

WATCH:

While attacking former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who may run as an Independent for president in 2020, AOC wound up with egg all over her face.

See her tweet:

Pretty rude, right?

The problem is that Ocasio-Cortez clearly has no clue about Howard’s background.

-Schultz was born on July 19, 1953, in Brooklyn, New York. In an interview with Bloomberg, he said growing up in the projects — “loosely described as the other side of the tracks”

-He experienced poverty at an early age. When Schultz was 7 years old, his father broke his ankle while working as a truck driver picking up and delivering diapers. At the time, his father had no health insurance or worker’s compensation, and the family was left with no income.

Reactions:

Schultz isn’t exactly a conservative, but he has been ripping AOC and Senator Elizabeth Warren like he’s getting paid to do it.

This is how some Dems reacted after learning Schultz might run in 2020:
