*excerpt: Chilling surveillance footage has emerged of a New Zealand man rolling the body of his Tinder date, British backpacker Grace Millane, out of a motel in a suitcase after strangling her, according to a report. The video shows 28-year-old Jesse Shane Kempson using a porter’s trolley to carry two cases into an elevator at CityLife in Auckland, the Sun reported. He is then seen returning with it carrying luggage that he later admitted contained Millane’s naked body folded into the fetal position, according to the news outlet. Kempson loaded the suitcase containing her corpse into a rented Toyota hatchback and drove to the outskirts of the city, where he buried it, the Sun reported. Surveillance video also captured the moment Kempson took Millane up to his room after a night out on the town. Millane’s parents were seen wiping away tears when the video was shown in court during Kempson’s murder trial. News of the footage comes as it has been revealed that Kempson also committed violent sex crimes against two other women before Millane’s murder. https://nypost.com/2020/12/23/grace-millanes-killer-caught-on-video-carrying-body-in-suitcase/

Again, not that upset. *excerpt: Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) said in an interview on CNN's "Inside Politics" that she would work to make it a priority for prisoners to get the coronavirus vaccine. The Massachusetts lawmaker made the comments as her state announced that inmates would be among the first to be inoculated after health care workers and the elderly. Pressley said she was vaccinated on Saturday to encourage reluctant black Americans who she claims are distrustful of the health care system to be vaccinated. "I wanted to set an example... I consulted with my husband and my health care provider, which is what I encourage others to do when making their own very personal decision," she said. Not all members of her progressive group of congresswomen, unofficially called the "squad," are in agreement. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said it was "shameful" that younger lawmakers like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) have received the vaccine before seniors and essential health workers. She said that she would pass on getting the vaccine so that people who need it the most will have access to it. Pressley, who has the auto-immune disease alopecia continued "...at the end of the day, I think this is what is in the best interest of our public health... I trust the vaccine and that's why I had it administered. And I want to say thank you to all the scientists and all the researchers." According to the Marshall Project, which tracks prisoner deaths in federal and state facilities, more than 276,235 people in prison have tested positive for the coronavirus as of Dec. 15 and at least 1,738 prisoners have died from the disease. "I'm going to continue to fight for our most vulnerable communities who have been disproportionally impacted by the virus, for our health care workers, for our essential workers, for incarcerated men and women to be prioritized in the distribution of the vaccine," Pressley said in the interview. Last week, a group of academics from Yale, Columbia, Harvard and other universities, asked the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to prioritize prisoners for vaccinations. "Prisons and jails across the country have been epicenters of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the beginning of the pandemic, correctional facilities have accounted for a majority of the largest single-site, cluster outbreaks across the country. Nearly twenty percent of the prison population has tested positive for COVID-19, with an infection rate that is higher than five times and an age-adjusted mortality rate that is three times that of the general population," they wrote in a statement outlining their recommendation. Thousands of prisoners across the country were released in response to the initial outbreak of the pandemic. Many of those we re-arrested for offenses or violating the terms of their release. The CDC has recommended that the first shots go to essential workers in the health care industry and residents of long-term care facilities like nursing homes and assisted living. "I will continue to fight in Washington and in Massachusetts to ensure that our frontline healthcare workers, those behind the wall, our essential workers, and the marginalized communities who have been hit hardest by this pandemic are able to access the vaccine rapidly and free of cost," Pressley said in a statement. https://thepostmillennial.com/rep-ayanna-pressley-calls-to-prioritize-prisoners-to-receive-covid-vaccine

*excerpt: This country is not governed by a “Republican Party” and a “Democratic Party.” It is governed by an establishment “uniparty” that betrays our citizens at every turn. Exhibit A: The joint annual ritual of fiscal vulgarity known as the omnibus spending bill. While Americans are distracted with the holidays, Beltway crapweasels stuff their legislative Christmas trees with multibillion-dollar goodies for every special interest except the American people. I’ve reported with depressing regularity over the past quarter-century on how these pork-laden monstrosities get rammed through Congress, unread, with little scrutiny or outrage. But finally, light bulbs are going off. The juxtaposition of measly COVID-19 relief for U.S. citizens against the backdrop of lavish aid for illegal immigrants, the military-industrial complex, Big Pharma, overseas social justice warriors, nongovernmental organizations and foreign countries is just too brazen to ignore. Americans will receive $600 COVID-19 relief checks and $300 unemployment payments as part of the consolidated federal government funding package. The $900 billion in COVID-related aid is folded into the massive, 5,600-page legislation encompassing 12 fiscal 2021 spending bills worth $1.4 trillion. The puny pandemic stimulus for we the people is a pittance compared with these giveaways buried in the abominable “America last” porkulus: — 15.4 million illegal immigrant family members are now eligible for stimulus checks and can also now receive retroactive payments worth up to $1,800. — The amnesty program for thousands of Liberians who’ve lived and worked here unlawfully since 2014 has been extended for another year. — Untold numbers of illegal immigrants who claim to live with “unaccompanied minors” smuggled across the border will now enjoy a new shield from deportation. — While funding support for the detention and removal of illegal immigrants by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has been slashed by $431 million, open borders nonprofits are rejoicing over new funding for catch-and-release pilot programs that will keep deportable illegal immigrants out of federal custody. — $500 million to Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama to “address key factors that contribute to the migration of unaccompanied, undocumented minors to the United States.” — $461 million to Colombia for drug control and “human rights” programs. — $75 million to the “Caribbean Basin Security Initiative.” — $33 million “for democracy programs for Venezuela.” — $1.65 billion to Jordan for “foreign military financing” and other assistance. — $700 million in economic aid to Sudan for “global health” and “transition.” — $40 million to Syria for economic support, drug control and law enforcement, and emergency medical and rescue response. — At least $25 million for “democracy” and “gender programs” in Pakistan. — “Not less than” $135 million for drug control and law enforcement assistance in Burma. — “Not less than” $85.5 million to Cambodia. — $130 million to Nepal for “development” and “democracy” programs. — $1.3 billion to Egypt for “economic support” and “higher education.” — $453 million to Ukraine. — $241 million for Tunisia. — $15 million to refurbish a patrol boat in Sri Lanka. — $170 million to Vietnam, including $19 million to clean up dioxins. — $200 million to Bangladesh, including $23.5 million to support Burmese refugees and $23.3 million for “democracy programs.” — $132 million “for assistance for Georgia.” — “Not less than” $1.5 billion for implementation of Indo-Pacific Strategy and the Asia Reassurance Initiative. Then there’s Israel, which raked in $500 million in military aid, plus $250 million to invest in “people to people” exchanges among Palestinians, Israelis and Americans, $5 million for refugee resettlement, $2 million for cooperative COVID-19 health research, $2 million for “sustainability” research, $4 million for the U.S.-Israel Center of Excellence in Energy and Water, $2 million for cooperative energy programs, $2 million for U.S.-Israel “border security” programs and $2 million for “strategic dialogue” among the U.S., Israel, Greece and Cyprus. This half-billion-dollar gift to Israel, one of the world’s wealthiest nations with universal health care and highly subsidized higher education, comes on top of the $3.8 billion in foreign aid already allocated to the country this month through the National Defense Authorization Act — which also included $3.3 billion for security assistance, $500 million for missile defense, $47.5 million for “anti-tunnel technology” and $25 million for anti-drone aerial systems thousands of miles away to protect them. Not us. What about our borders? What about our domestic peace? What about our health? What about our sustainability? What about our schools? What about our small businesses? What about our human rights? Americans who dare ask these questions are viciously attacked by the uniparty gatekeepers and globalist water-carriers as “xenophobic,” “racist” and “anti-Semitic.” We’ve had enough. A manufactured public health crisis, post-George Floyd anarchotyranny, and the wholesale hijacking of our election system are pushing citizens to the brink of revolt. In such times, and at all times, any self-respecting sovereign nation must put its people first. If you don’t demand leaders who represent your interests, you deserve the serial abusers you elect, embolden and empower. https://thenewamerican.com/the-abominable-america-last-porkulus/

*excerpt: Facing near-unanimous opposition from Montana conservatives, and bipartisan opposition from his Senate colleagues, US Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) proved why people do not trust politicians and hate their government. At the last minute, Daines slipped the CSKT Water Compact into the coronavirus relief package. With one source estimating the bill only had a 3% chance of implementation, it is not a total surprise that Montana’s junior senator would make such a nefarious move. On page 2,323 of the nearly 5,600-page bill is the fraudulently-named Montana Water Rights Protection Act. If implemented, the bill would take away water rights from 2/3 of the state and is expected to have catastrophic unintended consequences. Multiple legislators have confirmed that a group of conservative Montana legislators met in private with Daines and his chief of staff to make a last-ditch effort to urge him to withdraw his bill. In addition to denying the request, the senator reportedly went on to state that he did not care if he lost his 2020 re-election bid as a result of throwing his conservative base to the wolves. Despite senior staff in the White House and Vice President’s office telling Montana Daily Gazette sources that President Trump and Vice President Pence would not support the illegal and unconstitutional compact as a standalone bill, “emergency” and omnibus packages such as this (especially during a lame duck period) rarely get vetoed. During a cleverly scripted hearing before the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, Daines reiterated his claim that he worked with legislators and county commissioners to resolve this dispute with the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes. With the nine county commissioners from Flathead, Lake, and Sanders Counties united against the Daines’ bill along with dozens of legislators, the senator was caught lying on the record. With a $2 billion price tag, red flags went up when DC congressional staffers began to look at the precedent-setting bill, prompting them to reach out to their Montana contacts. Sources report that Daines’ office told both the Trump Administration, and congressional staff that the CSKT Water Compact was a “non-controversial” bill in hopes of letting this quietly slip by. This prompted the Chairman of the Montana State Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Keith Regier (R-Kalispell), to draft a letter stating that the bill was controversial and should be sent back to the legislature. In January, opponents of the CSKT Water Compact held a press conference to discuss Daines’ disastrous legislation and Sen. Al Olszewski (R-Kalispell) went public with an op-ed that addressed the Daines bill. At the time, if elected governor, Olszewski said he would use the money the state allocated to give to the tribe to fight the legislation in court. Conservatives like Regier and Olszewski would like to see the bill come back to the legislature as it is no longer the version that was narrowly passed in 2015. It is worth mentioning that Superintendent of Public Instruction Elsie Arntzen (R), incoming Attorney General Austin Knudsen (R), and incoming Congressman Matt Rosendale (R) all voted against the bill while in the state legislature. One person who has largely kept their name out of this fight is governor-elect Greg Gianforte and his running mate Kristen Juras. Gianforte and Juras are both supporters of the CSKT Water Compact. Additionally, Gianforte is expected to vote in favor of the nearly $1 trillion package. At least one legislator has said that Knudsen, who was Speaker of the House when the Compact passed, supports Sen. Olszewski’s position that the state’s portion of the payout to the CSKT should be used to fight this in court. The question now is, will he? https://montanadailygazette.com/2020/12/22/two-thirds-of-montanas-water-given-away-in-federal-stimulus-package/
