Politicizing Death: ABC Hits Media for Missing White Woman ‘Infatuation’

After the body of a missing 22-year-old woman Gabby Petito was found earlier this week and ruled as a homicide Tuesday, ABC was already politicizing the young woman’s death.

On Good Morning America, co-anchor T.J. Holmes criticized the media for not giving enough attention to missing people of color and urging them to follow the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement.

Holmes seems to have been inspired by MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who voiced the same criticism on her show Tuesday night.

He started off his report citing a few high profile missing person/homicide cases to illustrate how they were all white women, and argued missing minorities don’t “get the same media attention”:

The effort, which was hatched at an internal meeting in January, had a specific purpose: to use Facebook’s News Feed, the site’s most important digital real estate, to show people positive stories about the social network.

Project Amplify punctuated a series of decisions that Facebook has made this year to aggressively reshape its image.

Since that January meeting, the company has begun a multipronged effort to change its narrative by distancing Mr. Zuckerberg from scandals, reducing outsiders’ access to internal data, burying a potentially negative report about its content and increasing its own advertising to showcase its brand.

Two Haitian migrants bite ICE officers on deportation flight

The runway incident is the latest episode in which Haitian migrants who have been deemed inadmissible to the United States after illegally crossing the border have refused to accept their fate, and it is indicative of a growing problem for government and contracted officials tasked with removing this specific population from the country.

On Monday, a flight that was set to depart Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio at 8 a.m. local time was heading toward the runway when it was forced to return to the gate because of a disturbance on the plane.

Two of the passengers left their seats and attacked Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations officers.

During the hearing, Rep. Michael Guest (R-Miss.) pointed to apprehension data from US Customs and Border Protection that showed the steady increase and compared the numbers to several states’ total populations. 

“That number is greater than the population of Montana, greater than the population of Rhode Island, greater than population of Delaware, population in both North and South Dakota, greater than the population of Alaska, though not a state population, the District of Columbia is better than the population of Vermont, it is greater than the population of Wyoming,” he said.

During Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) claimed that the lack of border security has allowed roughly 200 suspected terrorists to enter the US. Mayorkas did not respond to Higgins’ claim.

The up to 15,000 illegal immigrants holed up in a camp under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas, for the past week are being put on buses by Department of Homeland Security officials and sent to El Paso, Laredo and other locations along the Texas border.

Others are being put on flights to Tucson, Ariz., the Associated Press reported, citing US officials. 

They told the wire service that the mostly Haitian migrants have been freed on a “very, very large scale” in recent days and said the number could reach into the thousands.

The revelation that illegal immigrants are being released in the US comes just days after DHS Secretary Alejando Mayorkas warned that people arriving in the US will be returned to their home countries.

The humanitarian crisis underway on the border near Del Rio, Texas, includes adults, children and babies among the estimated 12,000 mostly Haitian migrants waiting to be processed by US border officials. 

The photos depict scenes of misery and squalor more common to Third World countries than a US border town.

In one, a family seeks shelter in a rickety tent constructed of pieces of brightly colored fabric attached to a structure of discarded tree branches. 

During the day, the migrants try to protect themselves from the broiling sun and the temperatures that soar into the high 90s, and at night, the camp takes on an eerie quiet.

Wilmington, Delaware, issues a lot of parking tickets and then allows private companies to tow any car with more than $200 in outstanding fines.

Rather than pay money to those companies for their services, the city contractually empowers the towing companies to keep and scrap cars.

“We’re trying to help replace these Republican voters with immigrants from South America but we need to tear down the border wall to make sure that more of them can come,” Dice told one man.

The man, without a second thought, signed on. Sadly, the man who thought he was signing a petition to essentially end U.S. sovereignty was not alone. There were so many others.

“We’re trying to tear down this border wall, now that Donald Trump is out of office but we need a few more signatures,” Dice told another person who was passing him near the beach on a San Diego sidewalk.

New Proof Emerges About the Hunter Biden Laptop: a Definitive Account of the CIA/Media Fraud

 New evidence on Monday proved what has long been clear: that documents about Joe Biden from the Hunter Biden laptop were authentic.

Big Tech censorship in the weeks before the 2020 election of these genuine documents is one of the most severe assaults on free speech and a free election in years.

That the corporate media was their key ally by endorsing and spreading a CIA lie — that these documents were “Russian disinformation” — makes this episode even more grave.


GOP Senators unveil legislation seeking to block dishonorable discharges for unvaccinated troops

Historically, U.S. service members who are dishonorably discharged give up certain rights and privileges, including access to the GI Bill for further education and veteran-specific home loans and medical benefits.

Marshall, who is a veteran, said the choice to get vaccinated should be between a person and their doctor. 

“There is no question about it: American heroes should not be treated as felons because of their personal medical choices,” Marshall added. 

Defund-the-police firebrand Ocasio-Cortez gets protective police escort

Ocasio-Cortez joined Democrats at a news conference on Tuesday to call for passage of a bill granting the Biden administration the authority to implement an eviction moratorium.

Ocasio-Cortez, a climate action advocate and sponsor of the Green New Deal, left with Capitol Police protection in a large Chevy Suburban SUV at the conclusion of the news conference.

Ocasio-Cortez has supported the “defund the police” demand of the Black Lives Matter activist group.

“Defunding police means defunding police,” Ocasio-Cortez said last year. “It does not mean budget tricks or funny math.”

White House peeved Boris Johnson answered questions from reporters in the Oval Office

White House press secretary Jen Psaki expressed some minor annoyance with U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson during Wednesday’s briefing.

When Psaki asked O’Keefe “which aspects” he was referencing, O’Keefe recalled how “the British prime minister in the American Oval Office called on British reporters, and then, when American reporters tried to call on the American president, we were escorted out.”

The incident O’Keefe was referencing occurred at the end of a Tuesday evening bilateral meeting with President Joe Biden. Following the meeting, Johnson fielded questions from two British reporters embedded in Tuesday’s in-town pool. However,

White House officials forced the group out of the room as Biden began to answer a question from U.S. reporters.

Rep. Bob Gibbs introduces articles of impeachment against Biden

Ohio Republican Rep. Bob Gibbs introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden on Tuesday, citing his handling of the U.S.-Mexico border situation, attempt to expand the federal moratorium on evictions, and the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

Republican Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona and Brian Babin and Randy Weber of Texas signed on as co-sponsors of the impeachment resolution.

“I take this seriously. I don’t think it’s haphazard. I’m not trying to get media attention for myself,” Gibbs told the Washington Examiner in an interview. “He’s done so much damage to this country in less than nine months, which is really scary.”

Wuhan scientists wanted to release coronaviruses into bats

Details of the leaked proposal were released Tuesday by Drastic Research, a group of international scientists investigating the origins of the pandemic.

Drastic said it was provided the papers by a whistleblower, and a former member of the Trump administration confirmed the proposal’s authenticity to the Telegraph.

The group questioned whether the research — particularly altering the virus to make it more infectious to humans — still went ahead given the theory that COVID-19 spread from the Wuhan lab.

“Given that we find in this proposal a discussion of the planned introduction of human-specific cleavage sites, a review by the wider scientific community of the plausibility of artificial insertion is warranted,” Drastic said.

GRAPHIC: Terrorists Detonate Deadly Bomb Outside Restaurant in Central Mexico

The restaurant manager and one of the owners went to collect the package–which looked like a gift. The box exploded when they tried to open it. Inside the restaurant, a large group were celebrating the manager’s birthday.

The two men died at the scene, while one of the delivery men and three others are listed in critical condition.

On Monday afternoon, Guanajuato Governor Diego Sinhue Rodríguez Vallejo called the case a terrorist attack, revealing the explosive was “very powerful,” Mexico’s El Universal reported.

China expert warns Australia of nuclear strikes; Recovered CCP virus patient retests positive

A Chinese expert is warning Australia that other countries may target the nation for nuclear attacks—all because Australia signed a new security pact with its allies.

China’s neighbors are racing to purchase new weapons. They’re bolstering their defenses to counter China’s military expansion.

The United States plans to reopen air travel to foreign passengers, but only when they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. That includes those from China. But are Chinese vaccines effective enough to qualify?


How radicals are RUINING our economy to TAKE DOWN the west

Glenn says he’s just as nervous about America’s future today as he was in 2007, except this time it’s not just the economy he fears is near collapse: ‘it’s the whole thing.’

And the changes that are coming, Glenn says, are ‘going to hit you financially like nothing will ever hit you.’

It’s all happening because radicals — both within our Democrat party and world elites — WANT to take down America and the west.

So, they’re working to dismantle FIVE institutions that once made America great.
