Federal prosecutors filed a motion for detention on Friday morning, showing some of what the Federal Bureau of Investigations and other agencies found when they executed the search warrant on Wednesday, including a stockpile of weapons allegedly owned by Taherzadeh and Ali.

Federal law enforcement officers recovered a Glock 9mm handgun loaded with 17 rounds of ammunition, a Sig Sauer P229 with five fully loaded magazines, and multiple “firearm components” which prosecutors say are normally used with “long guns and assault rifles,” among others weapons.

Additionally, law enforcement agents recovered “numerous electronic devices,” including a “significant” amount of surveillance equipment, 30 hard drives, hard drive copying equipment, a server which contained “six modules,” as well as a machine that creates and programs Personal Identification Verification cards, and blank cards with chips.

The verdicts against Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta were read in the federal court in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Jurors said they couldn’t agree on verdicts against Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr. Prosecutors described Fox as a ringleader of an anti-government group.

Earlier in the day, the jurors said that there are several counts which the deliberative body were deadlocked on. Testimony began on March 9.

Fox, Croft and Harris faced additional charges. The two most serious charges, kidnapping conspiracy and conspiracy to use explosives, both carry potential life sentences.

The trial lasted over 20 days. Prosecutors said they turned their anger toward the government in 2020 into a plot to kidnap Whitmer because of the restrictions she imposed during the early months of the pandemic.

Maryland senior citizen assaulted by four suspects during attempted carjacking

The incident took place on March 29, when the four suspects approached the victim during her return home from running errands, according to Fox 5 Washington DC. They pushed the victim to the ground, looked through her pockets, stole her keys and ripped her purse from her hands.

The victim repeatedly cries out for help, but there was no one to come to her rescue.

As she attempted to run to a neighbor’s home for help, she was tackled by one of the suspects, leaving her with two broken bones. 

Police are now asking for the public’s help to identify the four suspects.

Multnomah County District Attorney Rod Underhill charged Brophy, 71, with one count of murder with a firearm in September 2018, but her trial has been delayed due to COVID-19, court documents show.

An indictment alleges that in June 2018, Brophy “did unlawfully and intentionally cause the death of” her now-deceased husband, Daniel Brophy, using a 9 mm pistol. Daniel Brophy was fatally shot at the Oregon Culinary Institute (OCI), where he worked, on June 2, 2018, when the Portland Police Bureau initially opened an investigation into the case.

Court documents further allege that Nancy called detectives in June requesting a letter stating she was not a suspect in her husband’s homicide to provide to her life insurance company because she had a policy for Daniel valued around $40,000.

“As my son texted me this morning, Gen Z is 30-40% queerer than other generations,” Burke said on the video call, published by writer Christopher F. Rufo. “So Disney better get with it.”

“When I was at Freeform, it was very much in the brand ethos to be the tip of the spear when it comes to inclusion,” Burke explained earlier on the same call. Freeform is a cable television channel owned by the Disney corporation.

Burke said in another video that she would like to see at least 50% of Disney’s characters in the future identify as LGBT or as a racial minority.

Report: U.S. Navy Shrinking Under Biden Cost-Cutting as China Keeps Building


As the military world broadens in scale and increases in complexity due to the speed of technological advances, the U.S. Navy wants to scrap 24 ships, including five cruisers and a pair of Los Angeles-class submarines.

The reduction in hulls is designed to help it meet cost-cutting measures needed to maintain the existing fleet at full operational readiness.

AP reports Navy planners seek to decommission nine ships in the Freedom-class of littoral combat ships — warships that cost taxpayers some $4.5 billion in total. All told the decommissioning list would surpass the proposed nine ships to be built.

The cuts would reduce the size of the 297-ship fleet that’s already surpassed by China in sheer numbers.

North Carolina State University’s Department of Computer Science published, “A Peek into the Political Biases in Email Spam Filtering Algorithms During US Election 2020,” last week in order to determine if spam filtering algorithms (SFAs) are biased toward a particular political party or ideology.

The extensive study took place over a course of five months, from July 1, 2020 to November 30, 2020 on Gmail, Outlook, and Yahoo.

They created 102 email accounts and subscribed to two Presidential, 78 Senate, and 156 House candidates. 

“We made several important observations in our study.

For example, as an aggregate trend, Gmail leaned towards the left while Outlook and Yahoo leaned towards the right. Yahoo retained about half of all the political emails in inbox (up to 55.2% marked as spam) while outlook filtered out the vast majority of emails (over 71.8%) from all political candidates and marked them as spam,” the proposed methodology section continued. “Gmail, however, retained the majority of left-wing candidate emails in inbox (< 10.12% marked as spam) while sent the majority of right-wing candidate emails to the spam folder (up to 77.2% marked as spam).”

Biden’s border crisis heats up as migrants FLOOD into Texas

With facilities reaching maximum capacity, our Biden-led Border Patrol has released groups of migrants into border towns…especially ones in Texas.

The border crisis likely will get even worse in May, when the Biden administration removes Title 42. Republican Governor Greg Abbott — in a show of strength comparable to Florida’s Ron DeSantis — recently said Texas will use charter buses to transport migrants to Washington, D.C. instead.

BUT, there’s a catch…one that makes Glenn ask: Is Abbott doing ENOUGH to prevent more border crisis mayhem?!

Both the DNC and the Clinton campaign were recently fined by the Federal Election Commission for claiming that payments to Perkins Coie were for legal consulting and not opposition research.

Durham also lists documents held by Fusion GPS and former Neustar executive Rodney Joffe as being withheld under claims of privilege.

Fusion GPS in particular “has withheld approximately 1,455 documents that are responsive to the subpoenas based on claims of attorney-client privilege and attorney work  product protections,” according to the filing.

However, “the vast majority of the entries reflect communications with no lawyer listed as a sender, recipient, or copied party,” Durham wrote.

In a report published Thursday, the Washington Examiner shared details of an analysis of the union’s filings produced by the right-to-work nonprofit organization Americans for Fair Treatment that appeared to show the NEA’s overt mission to sway the nation’s politics.

In its analysis, the nonprofit reportedly found that during the 2020-2021 fiscal year, the NEA, which boasts more than 3 million members, “donated $66 million to political activities and another $117 million to ‘contributions, gifts, and grants’ that were primarily political donations.”

The $66 million in political donations amounted to 18% of the union’s $374 million budget for 2020-2021, while the $117 million in “contributions, gifts, and grants” amounted to 32% of its expenditures. Meanwhile, just 9% of the union’s budget was spent on direct assistance to members.

Alabama legislature approves bills to protect kids from radical leftist gender ideology, including measure that makes it a felony to provide gender reassignment surgery or meds to people under 19

The bill also states that teachers and others at public and private schools may not hold back information from a parent related to a child’s feelings that their gender identity does not align with their biological sex.

While many Americans would support this type of legislation as a common sense way of protecting children, not everyone shares that view.

The Associated Press reported that Democratic state Rep. Neil Rafferty, who is gay, seemed to struggle to restrain his anger and keep his composure as legislators headed to the vote.

The state legislature has also approved another piece of legislation that would mandate that pubic K-12 schools require people to utilize multiple occupancy bathrooms that align with their biological sex. The measure would also prohibit teaching students about sexual orientation or gender identity in kindergarten through fifth grade.

The Ukrainian military account shared photos of several destroyed vehicles in a wooded area, as well as a patch bearing the Russian 38th Separate Guards Motorized Rifle Brigade’s insignia.

It is not exactly clear where the Russian armored brigade suffered these losses, but in a statement on Wednesday, the Ukrainian military assessed the Russian unit was moving from Belarus to the Belgorod region of Russia. Belgorod is located just a few miles east of the Russian-Ukrainian border.

The Ukrainian military assessed the main focus of Russian forces is on preparing for a renewed offensive in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region.

The Russian armored unit’s movement from Belarus to the Belgorod region would indicate it may have intended to regroup and resupply in Belgorod before the planned Russian offensive.


What’s Wrong With The West? – The Movement episode 4

What is happening in the West? Why are we observing a trend of collapse and decay in all Western societies?

In this episode of The Movement, Thierry Baudet shares his views about the current problems plaguing the West and identifies the three major trends that are responsible for what we are witnessing today: immigration, supranational legislation, and climate change.

Thierry explains that these trends have emerged from Marxist ideology, sold to the public as a higher and utopian state of existence, but that is eventually dystopian and doomed to fail.

He further illustrates that we, as humans, are beings in need of a sense of community but that this very foundation of our humanity is being undermined by these three major projects.
