Harrowing prison footage shows how Army vet inmate, 62, died after being left paralyzed and in excruciating pain for FIVE DAYS after guards broke his neck – then walked past his cell 170 TIMES and ignored his screams

Horrific footage has revealed how an Army veteran prison inmate died after being left paralyzed in excruciating pain and locked in a confinement cell for five days after staff broke his neck. 

Craig Ridley, 62, was tackled to the ground by a corrections officer, leaving him paralyzed on his bunk. Prison staff walked past his cell a total of 170 times – ignoring his pleas for help – before he was taken to hospital.  

He had a slow and painful death, finally succumbing to his injuries on October 12, 2017, after officers at the Florida prison insisted for weeks that he was faking the ailments. 

Ridley was slammed to the ground by Capt. William Jerrels on September 8 after muttering something ‘disrespectful’ to Sgt. John Nettles, who first punched the prisoner in the face. 

Bombshell email shows DHS knew ‘whipping’ story was bogus — but Mayorkas pushed false narrative anyway

Emails obtained by the Heritage Foundation show that Marsha Espinosa, assistant secretary of DHS public affairs, emailed Mayorkas with information casting doubt on the “whipping” narrative.

Specifically, Espinosa relayed a news story in which the photographer behind the infamous photos, Paul Ratje, debunked the narrative. Espinosa’s email was sent at 12:05 p.m on Sept. 24, 2021.

By 2:30 p.m. that afternoon, Mayorkas was pushing the clearly false narrative. He said at the White House press briefing:

Mayorkas promised a swift investigation into the mounted Border Patrol agents. But more than one year after the incident, the investigation remains ongoing, Fox News noted.

After the news of the email broke Wednesday morning, Republican lawmakers reiterated calls for Mayorkas to resign or be impeached.

Sam Long, a biology teacher at Denver South High School, said during the event that teachers must “clean up” their language of gendered terms, including “males are more likely to be colorblind” and “women produce eggs.”

“It’s not women that produce eggs: It’s ovaries that produce eggs,” Long said. “We’re teaching students that language matters. We’re not just talking about imaginary people and living things.”

During the webinar, cohosted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Long highlighted his website, The site, which offers lesson plans and language guides for “nonbinary educators,” was featured in the Education Department’s Best Practices Clearinghouse last year.

The clearinghouse, launched four months into Biden’s term, provides resources for educators with “a distinct focus on expanding equity,” according to its webpage.

GRAPHIC: Mexican Cartel Gunmen Dump 4 Human Heads near Texas Border

In recent days, gunmen from the Cartel Del Noreste faction of Los Zetas left an ice chest with four severed heads and a posterboard in Miguel Aleman, south of the border and Roma, Texas. The case comes a week after the Gulf Cartel left a dismembered body in the same city.

According to police reports, a Mexican military patrol found the chest on the side of a road.

Three of the heads appeared to be male victims between ages 20 and 30, while the fourth appeared to be older.  A Tamaulipas law enforcement source revealed to Breitbart Texas that male genitals were found inside the mouth of one of the victims.

Over the weekend, the military clashed with cartel gunmen — killing one. The recent violence in Miguel Aleman is tied to a push by the CDN-Los Zetas to take over drug and human smuggling corridors controlled by the Gulf Cartel.

Illegal Alien Charged with Killing Father of Two in Texas Hit-and-Run


According to the Longview Police Department, Frausto-Lopez caused the crash that killed Gore, who was driving his motorcycle. Frausto-Lopez then allegedly fled the scene but was arrested later and charged with causing an accident involving injury or death.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency placed a detainer on Frausto-Lopez, asking local law enforcement to turn him over to their custody for arrest and deportation, jail records reviewed by Breitbart News show.

Gore was the father of two children, Izzabella and Jaxson, and leaves behind his parents Blane and Crystal Gore as well as his twin brother Trestin, sisters Madi and Hannie, brother Justin, and girlfriend Sydnee.

NY Republican unloads after illegal immigrants caught, released at border charged in hate-fueled burglary ring

Three illegal immigrants caught and released at the U.S.-Mexico border, as well as a fourth person, a U.S. citizen previously released on cashless bail, have been charged in New York’s Long Island for carrying out a hate-fueled robbery ring allegedly targeting members of the Indian community. 

Brayan Alexis Ortiz-Ramos, 20, Daniel Esteban Jimenez-Carrillo, 30, Gersson Jhoan Hernandez-Gomez, 33, all born and raised in Colombia, as well as Justin Mora-Soto, 20, who was born in the U.S. but went to live in Colombia at age 2, are all charged with second-degree burglary as a hate crime and conspiracy. 

The four suspects, accused members of a South American theft group, are believed to be connected to between 20 and 30 home burglaries in Hicksville, Bethpage, Levittown and New Hyde Park, Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said.

A self-described “incel,” or “involuntary celibate,” from Ohio on Tuesday pleaded guilty to plotting a mass shooting of about 3,000 women, including sorority girls, according to the Justice Department.

The day he wrote his manifesto, he searched online for sororities and for information on the Ohio university where he planned to conduct the attack. In 2019, he had purchased gloves; a bulletproof vest; a hoodie with the word, “Revenge”; a bowie knife; a skull face mask; two Glock 17 magazines; a 9mm Glock 17 clip; and a holster clip for a Glock, the DOJ said.

The 22-year-old attended Army basic training in Georgia through December 2019 before he was discharged for entry-level performance and conduct.

Genco has pleaded guilty to one count of attempting to commit a hate crime and faces a sentencing of up to life in prison because the plot included an attempt to kill.

Whoops: Soros-Backed Prosecutor in Virginia Mistakenly Freed Murder Suspect

The office of Loudoun County prosecutor Buta Biberaj (D.) on Thursday dropped second-degree murder charges in general district court for 25-year-old Stone Colburn, who last year was accused of stabbing his brother’s girlfriend to death.

Biberaj’s office dropped charges in an effort for the Loudoun County Circuit Court to declare Colburn mentally fit to stand trial. Biberaj said the district court was on the verge of committing him to a mental hospital. 

But one of Biberaj’s deputies failed to get those new charges approved by a judge before dropping the old ones, attorneys say, which forced the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office to release Colburn. Colburn skipped town after his release and had made it almost 600 miles away before he was apprehended Friday by police in Chatham County, Ga.

CDC Enables Younger Children to Get Updated COVID-19 Boosters After FDA Authorization

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Oct. 12 enabled younger children to receive updated COVID-19 boosters.

The CDC’s move came hours after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted emergency authorization to Moderna and Pfizer for their updated COVID-19 boosters for children between the ages of 5 and 11.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the CDC’s director, did not appear to recommend the updated boosters, but her signature on a memorandum means children in the age group can start receiving the shots.

Children as young as 6 can now receive the Moderna booster, and children as young as 5 can now receive the Pfizer booster.

Pfizer did not know whether Covid vaccine stopped transmission before rollout, executive admits

Ms Small — appearing in the place of Pfizer chief executive Albert Bourla, who had been called to testify but pulled out of the hearing earlier this month — replied that the company had to “move at the speed of science”.

“Regarding the question around, um, did we know about stopping the immunisation [sic] before it entered the market? No, heh,” she said.

Mr Roos shared a brief clip of Ms Small’s response on Twitter, describing the answer as “scandalous”.

“Millions of people worldwide felt forced to get vaccinated because of the myth that ‘you do it for others’,” he said in the video, which has been viewed more than five million times.

“Now this turned out to be a cheap lie. This should be exposed.”

Mr Roos said the admission removed the entire basis for vaccine mandates and passports which “led to massive institutional discrimination as people lost access to essential parts of society”.

“I find this to be shocking, even criminal,” he said.

Pfizer made nearly $US37 billion in sales from its Covid vaccine last year — making it one of the most lucrative products in history, The Guardian noted — with overall revenue doubling in 2021 to $US81.3 billion.

The US drugmaker reported annual profits of $US22 billion, more than double the previous year.

Valero Scorches Gavin Newsom for Blaming High Fuel Costs on Gas Companies

Valero sent a lengthy letter putting Newsom in his place and explaining why his answer is waiting in the mirror. In doing so, the energy producer also exposed the true goal of Democrats’ pain-is-the-point energy agenda.

“As the Commission knows, and as countless investigations have demonstrated, market drivers of supply and demand, together with government-imposed costs and specifications, determine market price,” Valero’s letter begins, explaining the basics of Econ 101 since apparently Newsom missed that lesson during his time at Santa Clara University. 

As to why Californians are paying more than anyone else in America for gas, Valero then drops the hammer on Newsom and the state’s Democrats:

For Valero, California is the most expensive operating environment in the country and a very hostile regulatory environment for refining. California policy makers have knowingly adopted policies with the expressed intent of eliminating the refinery sector. California requires refiners to pay very high carbon cap and trade fees and burdened gasoline with cost of the low carbon fuel standards. With the backdrop of these policies, not surprisingly, California has seen refineries completely close or shut down major units. When you shut down refinery operations, you limit the resilience of the supply chain.

That is, California’s Democrat leaders aren’t ignorant.

They know exactly what they’re doing and what it does to gas prices for their residents. As with the Biden administration’s energy policies, the pain is the point. They’re just blaming oil and gas companies in the meantime to try passing the buck until the energy crisis does irreparable damage.

But as Valero points out, the California Energy Commission understands its role in advancing the left’s radical, so-called “green,” agenda.

California Attorney General to investigate LA council redistricting discussed in secret recordings

While their racist statements have drawn fierce condemnations, the conversation also illuminated the zero-sum politics of redistricting.

The council members and Herrera talk about undercutting another member by putting her district “in a blender” and diluting the power of renters. They also discuss distributing “assets” like an airport to “Latino districts,” and emphasize how they can “massage to create districts” that benefit themselves.

Unlike in the process for drawing California’s congressional and state Legislature seats, which is overseen by an independent panel, maps of Los Angeles City Council districts are shaped and approved by sitting members, enabling manipulation and abuses of power.

The expanding fallout from the recordings has included calls for Los Angeles to adopt an independent redistricting panel. State Sen. Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica) said earlier this week he might run legislation to do so.

Flower Power: AZ Dem Wants to ‘Convert’ Military Resources to Fight Climate Change

The Democrat’s endorsement of the Earth Charter and her father’s writings could raise questions at home in Tucson, where the military and defense industry provides tens of thousands of jobs. Davis-Monthan Air Force Base supports 16,000 jobs in the Tucson area and contributes $2.5 billion to the local economy. Raytheon, the aerospace giant, is Tucson’s largest private employer, with more than 12,000 jobs.

Engel, a law professor at the University of Arizona, has embraced other controversial progressive causes that could hinder her efforts to flip Arizona’s sixth district.

She solicited donations in 2020 for a criminal justice nonprofit that paid bail for criminals who later committed violent crimes. She took a pledge during the Democratic primary this year to support reparations for slavery, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

On the environmental front, she said in 2009 that governments need to “make it a pain to drive” in order to limit greenhouse gas emissions, Fox News reported.

Pennsylvania to count undated ballots, election official says, despite US Supreme Court ruling

Pennsylvania’s election laws have historically required voters to include a signature and date on the outside of return envelopes when voting by mail

However, acting Secretary of State Leigh Chapman announced that Pennsylvania election officials should continue counting ballots that arrive with improperly filled-out envelopes, in accordance with the Commonwealth Court’s previous ruling on the matter. 

Chapman says the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling does not affect the state’s current election protocol, which will continue accepting and counting the ballots in defective envelopes. She cited a separate, Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania ruling that said such ballots must be accepted.

After leaving the Democratic Party with a scorched-earth statement blasting the “elitist cabal of warmongers” in Washington, D.C., former Hawaii congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard will campaign for Trump-endorsed New Hampshire Senate candidate Gen. Don Bolduc

The Bolduc campaign announced Wednesday that Gabbard will join the GOP candidate and “barnstorm the Granite State,” with a schedule of events forthcoming.

“We don’t agree on every issue, but I am honored to have the support of Tulsi Gabbard who shares my view that the status quo is broken, and we need a change of direction,” Bolduc said in a statement.

Katie Hobbs and Head Consultant Joe Wolf HIDE in restaurant bathrooms before FLEEING Veritas Action

[PHOENIX – Oct. 12, 2022] Project Veritas Action released a new video today showing the interaction between PVA Press Secretary, RC Maxwell, and Arizona Democrat gubernatorial candidate, Katie Hobbs, as she hid from the journalist to evade answering any questions.

PVA released a video yesterday that exposed the Hobbs campaign for having contradictory views on guns as well as strategizing excuses to avoid debating Republican candidate Kari Lake.

Maxwell approached Hobbs with questions on these issues, which led the candidate to spill her drink and walk away from the reporter.

Arizona Gov. Candidate Katie Hobbs “I don’t want to talk politics to anyone who I don’t know”

• Katie Hobbs, Democrat Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate: An Uber driver asked me “‘Oh, what do you do?’ And I was like, ‘Uh, I work for a campaign.’ I don’t know why I said that — I just didn’t want to have this conversation.

And he’s like, ‘Oh, Kari Lake?’ And I was like, ‘F**k no!’ I don’t want to talk to you. I don’t want to talk politics to anyone who I don’t know.”

• Joe Wolf, Head Political Consultant, Hobbs Campaign: Hobbs would support an assault weapons ban “if she could, yeah. I mean the problem is that it’s a federal issue, right?”

So, it’s kind of like, this state is crazy about their guns, so we’re not gonna take the beating for it before she can do anything about it.”
• Wolf: “That is an AR-15 [in our car] … Easier to fire than a handgun … That’s why it’s scary.”

NATO staging nuclear exercise in Europe amid Putin nuclear threats

Fourteen of 30 allied countries will participate in NATO’s annual “deterrence exercise,” Steadfast Noon, Voice of America reported.

VOA cites a NATO official saying the exercise will mainly occur more than 625 miles from Russia. No live bombs will be used, but fighter jets capable of carrying nuclear warheads will be involved.

NATO keeps a tight lid on the details of Steadfast Noon, but the Wall Street Journal reported it is the alliance’s main nuclear drill, involving fictional scenarios. It has been held annually since at least 2014, and was held over southern Europe last year.

Russian President Vladimir Putin vowed to use “all available means” defending four annexed regions of Ukraine, and President Joe Biden said Putin’s credible threats invite “the prospect of Armageddon.”

If you think now doesn’t seem like the right time for high-flying nuclear role-play, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg disagrees.

“It would send a very wrong signal if we suddenly now canceled a routine, long-time planned exercise because of the war in Ukraine,” he said.

Europe Turns to Africa to Replace Gas Energy it Once Got From Russia

The initial field near Senegal and Mauritania´s coastlines is expected to contain about 15 trillion cubic feet (425 billion cubic meters) of gas, five times more than what gas-dependent Germany used in all of 2019. But production isn’t expected to start until the end of next year.

That won’t help solve Europe’s energy crisis triggered by Russia’s war in Ukraine. Still, Gordon Birrell, an executive for project co-developer BP, says the development “could not be more timely” as Europe seeks to reduce its reliance on Russian natural gas to power factories, generate electricity and heat homes.

“Current world events are demonstrating the vital role that (liquid gas) can play in underpinning the energy security of nations and regions,” he told an energy industry meeting in West Africa last month.

Iranian enforces open fire on ‘schoolgirls’ as regime prepares for crackdown on Kurdish protesters: report

The IRGC is Iran’s most brutal weapon against protesters outraged at the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini at the hands of the country’s morality police. Unrest has been most prevalent in the Kurdish regions of Iran, and the regime is now preparing for a brutal crackdown on Sanandaj, the region’s capital.

Regime enforcers have killed hundreds of demonstrators across the country since Amini’s death last month.

The Hengaw Organization for Human Rights says IRGC troops killed five and wounded 400 with “machine gun fire and other violence” throughout the northern Kurdish region this week.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Ebrahim Raisi are now overseeing the crackdown on Sanandaj, where the IRGC have already used live ammunition against protesters. Iranian warplanes were also spotted arriving at the city’s airport.

Chinese Police Arm in NYC: Spying on Dissenters?; Report: Communist China Rewriting the Bible?

Wokeism and Globalism are a Bigger Threat than Vladimir Putin

Are the globalists willing to risk nuclear war to gain control over Europe and the United States? Why not? They have already consigned millions of Europeans to freeze to death this coming winter. How many Europeans die will be determined by how bad the winter is, and not by any political considerations.

Also please take note of the new rule: climate change is bad when caused by CO2 emissions, but when caused by ICBMs detonating around the globe it is a major foreign policy accomplishment.

Frankly, I would rather have Putin in charge of Russia than have Klaus Schwab in charge of the world, and if someone’s got to go I would think Klaus Schwab would be much higher on the list than Vladimir Putin. The truth is that there is plenty of evil to go around. Putin is nowhere near as dangerous, for example, as Xi Jinping. Are we pushing regime change in China?

No. Instead, we are depleting our strategic petroleum reserve, and selling much of our oil to China, through a firm co-owned between the CCP, and Hunter Biden. Our strategic petroleum reserve is already depleted by more than half, and our President is promising to deplete it even faster to try and keep gas prices from exploding before the midterms.

Once we no longer have strategic petroleum reserves, how will Joe Biden try to control the cost of gasoline? With China still threatening to invade Taiwan, what options will we have to help defend Taiwan without our strategic oil reserves?

Hunter Biden has taken tens of millions of dollars from China, as well as from Ukraine, and from Russia. Where are the hot spots under his father’s leadership? Is that just a coincidence, or is it possible that our foreign policy is being driven by all of the personal deals Jim and Hunter Biden have made promises of what Joe Biden could do for those countries?
