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.

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.

AOC Strikes Back At Manchin For Criticizing Her, Says He’s Diminishing ‘Seriousness Of’ My ‘Policy Work’

Published

The Democratic Party is experiencing a lot of in-fighting between the hardcore socialist wing and the more traditionally center-left establishment, a battle that is clearly seen by the tiff between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Joe Manchin. Manchin recently slammed AOC, stating that she spends most of her time on Twitter rather than being active in Congress. This comment didn’t sit well with the congresswoman who is lashing out in retaliation against Manchin for his comment, accusing him of “diminishing the seriousness” of her “policy work.” “I find it amusing when politicians try to diminish the seriousness of our policy work, movement organizing & grassroots fundraising to ‘she just tweets,’ as though ‘serious’ politics is only done by begging corporate CEOs for money through wax-sealed envelopes delivered by raven,” AOC posted on Twitter. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1333958991613923331 via Daily Wire: Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came in response to a comment Manchin made in response to her trolling him on social media. “I guess she put the dagger stare on me,” Manchin told The New York Times. “I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” The report noted that Manchin’s words constituted “a sharp insult” because in the U.S. Senate “legislative prowess is prized.” According to Congress.gov, Ocasio-Cortez has not introduced a single bill as the primary sponsor that has become law. In fact, the furthest any of her bills have made it is to Floor Consideration and that was just one bill. She has cosponsored 11 bills that have become law. Manchin, a centrist Democrat, also conducted an interview with Fox News in which he ripped AOC and her buddies. “They’ll have to answer to the public,” Manchin told…

Rudy Giuliani

The NY Times has managed to get a lot of things wrong over the years that President Trump has been in office. How many times does this publication need to have its credibility shot all to pieces before folks stop reading it? President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani is currently denying a report published by the New York Times that suggests he once discussed a preemptive pardon as recently as last week. “#FakeNews NYT lies again,” he posted on Twitter. via Newsmax: “Never had the discussion they falsely attribute to an anonymous source,” Giuliani said. “Hard to keep up with all their lies.” Giuliani, who has not been charged with any crime, has drawn scrutiny for his dealings in Ukraine on behalf of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has come out and denied allegations made in a recent New York Times report that he discussed a pardon with the commander-in-chief. Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, told the Times that Giuliani is not concerned about the investigation, “because he didn’t do anything wrong, and that’s been our position from Day 1.” Mainstream media news outlets have been biased against the president for a long, long time. Since he first announced his bid for the White House. They recognize his power and influence over regular Americans. His ability to relate to the common man and to actually do what he says he’s going to do frightens liberals. Trump stands in direct opposition to their goal of transforming our country into a socialist nightmare. Is it any wonder they’d start targeting those who have helped him in his crusade to put America first?
