Truck convoy hits DC Beltway for 4th day, this time with Sen. Ted Cruz

Hundreds of trucks, many from the cross-country convoy, and more than 1,000 truckers and their supporters converged on Hagerstown’s Speedway stadium and parking lot. From the signs they displayed affixed to their pick-up trucks and various other vehicles, the message was:

Trump is good, Biden is bad and their protest is all about “freedom.”

It began with freedom from mask mandates, but since most states have dropped the mandates, the issue is to end the government’s ability to invoke “emergency powers.”

Maureen Steele, a spokesperson for The People’s Convoy, said of government actions under emergency powers, “the cure was worse than the disease, suicide rates through the roof, divorce through the roof.”

Polk County Detention Deputy Arrested For Graphic Sexual Harassment Of Female Inmate

POLK COUNTY, FL. – Former Detention Deputy Robert Collins, 57, was arrested and booked into the Polk County Jail and charged with misuse of public office/unlawful solicitation and lewd or lascivious exhibition in the presence of an employee —both are felonies.

He was arrested yesterday, March 9, 2022, and booked into the Polk County Jail early this morning, March 10, 2022. He posted a $6,000 bond and he was released.

Polk County Sheriff’s Office detectives began investigating after an inmate complained to another detention deputy that she had been victimized.

The inmate said she was approached by Collins in a sexually suggestive way and he coerced her, based on his position of authority as a detention deputy, into pulling up her top, revealing her breasts, displaying and manipulating her genitalia at his request, and briefly touching his clothed penis (over his pants) at his request.

Christian Jeffers was arrested Wednesday for allegedly using a hammer to beat up a passenger on the subway in Manhattan, police said, according to The New York Post. Jeffers hit a 29-year-old Asian man with a hammer after the victim bumped into him, during the attack, which occurred Tuesday, according to the outlet.

Jeffers’ 47 prior arrests date back to 2007. His criminal history includes a second-degree robbery conviction, for which he served six years in prison, along with additional charges related to prostitution, grand larceny and public lewdness, the outlet reported.

Concerns about safety on the New York subways have increased as violence continues to plague the transportation system. The weekend after Mayor Eric Adams announced a new subway safety plan, at least six people were stabbed or slashed at a variety of subway stations.

Democrats Block GOP Bill To Restart Keystone XL, Federal Oil Lease Program

During the vote Wednesday evening, 219 Democrats voted against consideration of the American Energy Independence from Russia Act offered by Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw, McCarthy’s office said.

The legislation was introduced by Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Natural Resources Committee Ranking Member Bruce Westerman on Feb. 28.

The legislation would immediately approve the Keystone XL pipeline, remove restrictions on natural gas exports, restart the oil and gas leasing program, protect “energy and mineral development” and require the White House to issue plans for energy security and replacing oil tapped from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

TSA extending mask mandate for another month

The Biden administration will extend the federal mask mandate for all transportation networks through April 18, one month after it is set to expire. 

The one-month extension is based off a recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an administration official told The Hill.

The Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) mask mandate for travel on airplanes, in airports, on buses and on rail systems is currently set to expire on March 18. 

Lawmakers feast on pork in omnibus

One of the biggest winners was New York — thanks to Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who is up for reelection this year.

Schumer’s name is attached to 59 earmarks totaling nearly $80 million in the omnibus’s transportation and housing and urban development (HUD) section alone, according to a review by The Hill. He successfully requested funding for the projects either individually or with other lawmakers from his home state.

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are scrambling to figure out what’s in the bill, which didn’t become available to the public until early Wednesday morning. Lawmakers and the general public had little idea of what earmarks would be included in the package before the final vote, which leaders hope to hold before 11:59 p.m. Friday to prevent a government shutdown.

Ballot Bombshells: 20 episodes exposing fraud, illegalities and irregularities in 2020 election

For more than a year, Democrats and their allies in the corporate media have decried what they call the “Big Lie” that America’s 2020 election was flawed or stolen.

But almost weekly now, revelations are emerging that the election was, in fact, marred by illegalities, irregularities and mismanagement like former President Donald Trump has argued, leaving a nation increasingly doubting the reliability of its election system.

The 2020 election results almost certainly won’t be reversed, no matter how widespread the calls for decertification grow. But the opportunity to take the many failures of the last election seriously to improve Americans’ confidence in voting in the 2022 and 2024 elections looms large, experts told Just the News.

Here are 20 of the most important revelations uncovered by Just the News over the last 15 months of reporting, complete with substantiating evidence and links”

Psaki Refuses To Answer If Biden Owns An Electric Vehicle, Says Presidents ‘Don’t Do A Lot Of Driving’
