Air Force Base Daycare Worker Accused Of Beating Children And Much Worse
And while a daycare facility located on the Robins Air Force Base claimed to focus on the growth and well-being of the children in their care, a federal jury handed down a 30-count indictment after two employees allegedly abused the kids by making them fight, hitting them, and even spraying cleaning liquid in their faces.
The charges against them include hitting children with books, kicking children into nearby walls, violently shaking some of the children while threatening to hurt them, forcing a child into a small enclosure, and making some of the children fight each other.
As mentioned above, the two employees also found cleaning solution and sprayed it on the children’s faces. And the whole time this went on, the director, Latona Mae Lambert (51), failed to report the child abuse.
When it comes to the maximum sentence for each count, the cruelty to children in the first degree has a max of 20 years for each count. The cruelty to children in the second degree comes with a maximum of 10 years per count. One year max for each count of battery and one year max for failure to report child abuse.
Stocks mount biggest comeback in years; S&P 500 jumps 2.6%
NEW YORK (AP) — Wall Street staged its biggest comeback in years Thursday, as stocks roared back from steep morning losses caused by a worse-than-expected report on inflation.
The S&P 500 jumped to a gain of 2.6%, a stunning reversal after earlier being down as much as 2.4% and touching its lowest level in nearly two years. The Dow Jones Industrial Average swung more than 1,500 points from its low to its high. The turnarounds were the biggest for each index since March 2020.
Other markets around the world likewise veered sharply from losses to gains, while analysts offered possible reasons for the reversal but little that was concrete.
Trans Advocates Train Doctors How to Break Down Parents’ Resistance to Child Sex Changes
Titled “Engaging the Families of Transgender and Gender Diverse Children,” the guide from the Fenway Institute gave a number of strategies that doctors can use to pressure parents into accepting their child’s transgender identity.
One part of the guide listed “Potential signs that a family needs additional help and resources to come to accept and support their child’s gender diversity.” The guide includes numerous behaviors on the list, including “Referring to the child’s gender diverse identity as “a phase,” “Inconsistent name/pronoun use,” and “Using incorrect gendered words like ‘son’ or ‘daughter.”
Both “Rigid understanding of gender roles and gender expression” and “Fixation on the young person’s gender presentation previously being aligned with their sex assigned at birth” were also listed as signs that a family may need “additional help and resources to come to accept and support their child’s gender diversity.”
DOJ sued for refusing to explain why it ignored protests at Supreme Court justices’ homes
The group’s lawsuit against the Justice Department said its request for records from various offices, including the Office of the Attorney General, Office of Legal Counsel, the FBI, and the U.S. Marshals Service, were all denied.
The group was seeking records that explained why DOJ failed to enforce a federal law that protects Supreme Court justices from certain demonstrations at their private residences.
The initial request was ignored by the Biden administration, in violation of the FOIA statute, the group claimed in its lawsuit.
The DOJ repeatedly missed deadlines on subsequent requests, and even after granting one request with expedited processing, the Oversight Project has yet to receive a response from the DOJ.

Biden’s New Plan for the Economy ‘Will CRUSH Economic Freedom’ | @Glenn Beck
Biden’s Labor Department has proposed changes to the gig economy and stocks for companies like Uber and DoorDash have already plummeted. But what would these changes actually do?
Economic expert Carol Roth joins Glenn to break down how this would apply yet another one of California’s disastrous laws to the rest of America:
“this creates all kinds of issues not just for Uber and Lyft…but for 32.6 million small businesses and the 53 million people who want to have flexible work.
Inflation surged more than expected in September as prices remain stubbornly high
The Labor Department said Thursday that the consumer price index, a broad measure of the price for everyday goods including gasoline, groceries and rents, rose 0.4% in September from the previous month. Prices climbed 8.2% on an annual basis.
Those figures were both higher than the 8.1% headline figure and 0.2% monthly increase forecast by Refinitiv economists, a worrisome sign for the Federal Reserve as it seeks to cool price gains and tame consumer demand with an aggressive interest rate hike campaign.
Stocks tanked on the surprisingly hot report, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average down more than 500 points. The S&P 500 tumbled 2.10% and the Nasdaq Composite slipped 2.80%.
Why there may be NO WAY OUT of today’s ECONOMIC MESS
We’re in an ‘IMPOSSIBLE’ economic spiral, Glenn says, and there might be no way out of it. In this clip, Glenn explains exactly what’s caused America’s current, economic trouble.
He explains why European nations will be the first ones to deal with the worst of it, and how specific action from the Federal Reserve could ‘hasten the end.’
Plus, Glenn says why he fears there’s no way out of this economic MESS: ‘I think we’re in this spiral now. There’s a way to slow it down. But there’s not a way to stop it.’
Foreclosure activity increases in the United States
There were approximately 92,634 U.S. properties with foreclosure filings from July through September, including default notices, scheduled auctions or bank repossessions, according to ATTOM’s Foreclosure Market Report. That’s up 3% from the previous three months and up more than 100% from a year ago, according to the data.
Lenders started the foreclosure process on more than 67,200 U.S. properties throughout the three months, up 1% from the previous quarter and up 167% from a year ago, which is nearly reaching pre-pandemic levels, according to ATTOM.
One in every 1,517 properties nationwide had a foreclosure filing in the third quarter. However, the highest foreclosure rates throughout the three-month period were in Illinois, Delaware and New Jersey, according to the data.

MSNBC, CNN, and more ignore Mayorkas email about debunked Haitian migrants ‘whipping’ story
According to a Sept 24, 2021 email obtained by the Heritage Foundation, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was told that the photographer who captured a clash between Border Patrol agents and Haitian migrants in Del Rio had said that the incident was being misconstrued.
But hours before, Mayorkas attended a White House press conference where he failed to challenge the false narrative, pushed by other members of the Biden administration, including the president himself. Mayorkas at the time said that Americans, particularly Black community, were “horrified” by what the images suggested.
In September 2021, when the story first hit the airwaves, a number of left-leaning outlets repeated the claim that Border Patrol agents had whipped Haitian migrants in Del Rio, Texas.
The investigation is still ongoing more than a year later, but findings by the Office of Professional Responsibility in July found that no whips were in the agents’ possession and no migrant was struck by the reins – although it did find other alleged infractions.
Federal sources say the three horseback agents and supervisor are still facing discipline of between 3- to 14-day unpaid suspensions and are in the process of trying to respond to the accusations. Neither Biden nor Mayorkas have since publicly stated that there was no whipping involved.
New York parole board to release convicted cop killer 46 years after cold-blooded murder
Five decades ago, Anthony Curtis Blanks “assaulted, pursued and executed” Larchmont Patrolman Arthur Dematte on Oct. 12, 1976, according to the Larchmont Police Benevolent Association.
FOX 5 NY reported that Dematte, a 20-year-veteran of the force, was shot and killed by his own gun after trying to rescue Blanks from railroad tracks. He is survived by his wife and four children.
Blanks was convicted of first-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon in 1978.
“My husband got a call to save a man from the railroad tracks. And he got that man off before that man got killed by a train – safely off the tracks. And that man killed him,” the fallen officer’s widow, Alice DeMatte, told reporters at a news conference marking the 46th anniversary of the killing. “It’s been a lot of years and it’s still difficult to talk about. I was just numb and just hope that he doesn’t hurt somebody else.”
Blanks could leave Sing Sing Correctional Facility as early as Oct. 18. The convict first became eligible for parole in 2001 but had been denied parole multiple times since then.

Woman charged with dismembering landlord on North Side; she was found not guilty of attacking an 84-year-old in July
During a Wednesday evening press conference, CPD Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan said Walker had recently served Kolalou with eviction papers, and police believe that may have led to the murder.
Other tenants in the home heard a scream around 2:30 a.m. Monday, and that may be when the murder took place, Deenihan continued. Investigators believe Walker was killed in her bedroom, and Kolalou then dismembered her, possibly using large butcher knives, according to Deenihan.
The aggravated assault charge stems from allegations that she threatened a tow truck driver with a knife before police arrested her on Monday evening.
In January, an 84-year-old woman told police that Kolalou tackled her in the hallway of an Uptown condo building. The woman pinned the older woman to the floor and tried to put an inhaler in her mouth, saying, “I can help you,” according to a CPD report documenting the allegations.
Danchenko trial: Dem operative admits he lied about source of Manafort, Lewandowski info in dossier
During questioning, Durham’s team revealed an email from Danchenko to Dolan dated Aug. 19, 2016 in which Danchenko asked Dolan for any inside information on Manafort’s departure as Trump campaign chairman.
Dolan went on to tell Danchenko that Corey Lewandowksi, who served as Trump’s campaign manager during the 2016 GOP presidential primaries, “hates Manafort” and following his resignation “is doing a happy dance… it is a very sharp elbows crowd.”
During questioning on Thursday, though, Dolan testified that he never actually spoke to a GOP source, and admitted that he got that information from open source information — specifically cable news.
“I thought I’d embellish a bit,” Dolan testified Thursday. He added that Lewandowski “hating” Manafort was “pretty common” knowledge at the time.
Danchenko took the information included in Dolan’s email, re-worded it, and included it in his Aug. 22, 2016 report, which later was compiled into the Steele dossier.

Green energy projects face stark environmental, local opposition nationwide
In July, ClearPath released a report that highlighted growing opposition to wind energy in Iowa, which has the largest wind production of any state. About half of potential wind development areas in Iowa have been ruled out for future projects as a result of moratoria passed by counties.
The opposition to wind in Iowa is representative of issues facing wind development across the country where up to 17 times more wind deployment is required to meet U.S. net-zero emission goals.
Similarly, local fishing industry and wildlife groups have filed multiple lawsuits opposing offshore wind development.
Major industrial solar projects, like offshore and onshore wind development, has also experienced an uptick in local pushback.
Overall, nearly 60 local municipalities nationwide have proposed moratoria on new solar development since last year, according to an NBC News report. The Solar Energy Industries Association, the nation’s largest solar interest group, highlighted such restrictions as an impediment to future industry growth.
In addition, Nevada, Minnesota, Alaska and other mineral-rich states have seen increasingly high-profile fights over critical mineral production.

Liz Cheney Raises Money for Pro-Impeachment Lisa Murkowski in Alaska
Cheney, who lost her primary in August by nearly 40 points, has organized a mass text messaging campaign to raise money for the 21-year incumbent against surging Trump-endorsed Kelly Tshibaka.
Cheney is not the only member of the establishment uniparty trying to help Murkowski defeat Tshibaka. Murkowski has also been supported by establishment figurehead Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who has given money to her campaign instead of contributing funds to battleground states, such as Arizona’s Republican Senate candidate Blake Masters.
Murkowski has raised 85 percent of her money from out-of-state donors. Just 15 percent has come from in-state contributors, according to OpenSecrets. Meanwhile, Tshibaka leads the race in Alaska fundraising, a notable achievement against Murkowski, who was given the office by her father 21 years ago.

George Soros Pours Another $1 Million into Stacey Abrams’ Campaign
On the final day of the campaign’s third fundraising quarter, Democracy PAC II, a federal committee funded by Soros, sent $1 million to One Georgia Inc., a leadership committee Abrams leads to help her campaign, Fox News reported.
One Georgia Inc. reportedly shares a treasurer and an address with Abrams’ campaign.
The $1 million donation brings Soros’s total contributions to Abrams’ campaign efforts up to $3.5 million after he donated $2.5 million in the second fundraising quarter.
Both Soros’s daughter and daughter-in-law financially contributed to Abrams’ leadership committee. Andrea Soros Colombel gave One Georgia Inc. $100,000 in August, while Jennifer Allan Soros contributed $500 in September, according to Fox News.
AOC pressed on migrant arrivals, border crisis in town hall: ‘What are you gonna do about that?’
New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Wednesday that immigration was the only way for the U.S. to continue funding Medicare and Social Security programs.
A man, who described himself as a former firefighter, asked Ocasio-Cortez to explain what she will do to ease the ongoing migrant crisis at the southern border and ongoing drug trafficking’s impacts on U.S. communities.

New York Republicans demand Garland investigate Empire State AG Letitia James over Nikki Haley group tax leak
“The release of Stand For America’s donor records is extremely concerning,” Malliotakis told Fox News Digital in a statement. “Not only does it jeopardize protections non-profits are afforded under federal law, but it also sets a dangerous precedent of political weaponization by a state Attorney General.”
“This leak warrants an immediate investigation by the Department of Justice,” the New York Republican added.
In the letter exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital, Malliotakis and her fellow lawmakers shared their “distinct concern” of the “potential illegal delivery, receipt, and publication of” private donor information, citing that 501(c)4 donors’ information is legally confidential.
Protesters interrupt AOC town hall, speak against vote for Ukraine aide: ‘You’re the liar here’
Ocasio-Cortez was interrupted by two political activists. One heckler identified himself as Jose Vega, while the other remains unnamed.
“Congresswoman, none of this matters unless there’s a nuclear war which you voted to send arms and weapons to Ukraine,” one of the protesters shouted. “Tulsi Gabbard, she’s left the Democratic Party because they’re war hawks.”
“You originally voted — you ran as an outsider. Yet you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine. You’re voting to start a third world war with Russia and China,” the man continued.

Ukraine Joining NATO Would Spark ‘World War III’, Threatens Russian Security Official
In an interview with the Russian state news agency TASS, Security Council Deputy Secretary Alexander Venediktov said that he believed the accession request from Ukraine was nothing more than a “propaganda move”.
However, should Ukraine actually be accepted into the Western alliance, Venediktov said that “Kiev is well aware that such a step would mean a guaranteed escalation to World War Three.”
“Apparently, that’s what they are counting on – to create informational noise and draw attention to themselves once again,” the Russian security tsar said, adding: “But given that many members of the Kiev regime are out of touch with reality, I wouldn’t be surprised if some people out there really expect their country to be admitted to NATO.”

Fifteen European countries unite to boost air defence capabilities
Germany, which spearheaded the project, will coordinate the joint procurements to urgently plug existing gaps with regard to possible air attacks at close range — including drones — as well as medium and long-range, and especially against ballistic missiles and cruise missiles which Russia owns, its defence ministry said.
“It is about being able to set prices accordingly and, of course, it is also about being able to support each other jointly in terms of maintenance. So it’s a win-win situation for the countries that are part of it,” Minister Christine Lambrecht told reporters on Thursday morning.
Fourteen of the countries involved — Belgium, Bulgaria, Czechia, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, Slovenia, Romania, and the United Kingdom — are NATO members. Finland, whose application to the transatlantic military alliance is pending, is also taking part.

Social Democrats And Left Party In Germany Move To Ban Conservative Alternative For Germany Party Despite Growing Popularity In Polls
Germany, a country that prides itself on its democracy, is threatening to ban one of the country’s biggest parties. Members of the Social Democrats (SPD) and Left party (Die Linke) are attempting to ban the country’s conservative, Alternative for Germany (AfD) party despite its growing popularity in recent polls.
Marx has been pushing for the ban saying that “the time is ripe” given that the AfD party has been under monitoring and surveillance by several state branches of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution.
Part of the goal of the ban is to cut AfD off from receiving state funding.
The move from the Left in Germany is painfully similar to what the Left has been trying to achieve in the U.S.
