Bail For Kenosha Shooter Kyle Rittenhouse Set At $2 Million

In court on Monday, a Wisconsin court commissioner set bail at $2 million for Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who was charged in the fatal shooting of two protesters over the summer during demonstrations in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Earlier this week, Anonymous News reported that Rittenhouse was extradited to Wisconsin, from his home state of Illinois to face the charges against him. If found guilty, Rittenhouse could go to prison for the rest of his life.

Kenosha County court commissioner Loren Keating said that Rittenhouse poses a serious flight risk, considering that he lives in a different state, which is why the bail was set so high. The judge also said that since the charges against Rittenhouse are so serious, with the possibility of a life sentence, he would have a “reasonable basis to flee.”

Rittenhouse has been charged with killing 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum and 26-year-old Anthony Huber, as well as injuring 22-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz.

Rittenhouse’s attorney Mark Richards had requested Rittenhouse’s release on $750,000, arguing that his client acted in self-defense.

“Who attacked my client first? Rosenbaum, then the mob, not demonstrators, but rioters with ill intent in their heart,” Richards asked the court

Richards also asked Keating to dismiss the single misdemeanor charge against Rittenhouse for possessing a firearm as a minor, which Keating said he would address at a later date.

The victim’s family and people who disagree with Rosenbaum’s actions will likely be upset that he got bail at all, considering that his many right-wing supporters will likely donate large sums of money to contribute to expenses.

John Huber, the father of victim Anthony Huber, said that Rittenhouse “has people out there that will help him, militia organizations that can raise money and harbor him.”

Rittenhouse had traveled to the protests with a militia group that organized online and claimed to be assisting police and protecting private property during the demonstrations. The details of exactly what happened are still being investigated and debated, but at some point during the protest, Rittenhouse shot a protester multiple times.

Rittenhouse then began to try to get away from the area, but protesters who witnessed the shooting chased after him and tried to stop him. When the group caught up with Rittenhouse, another person was shot and killed after a short scuffle. After that, Rittenhouse was able to walk right past the police and leave the city. In one of the videos taken by witnesses, Rittenhouse can be heard saying “I just killed somebody.”

Rittenhouse turned himself in at a local police station in Antioch the morning after the shootings, where he apparently admitted to shooting protesters, according to records from the Antioch Police Department. He was with his mother when he walked into the police station before 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 26, according to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

After turning himself in, Rittenhouse was calm at ties but became so upset at some points that he began vomiting. Firefighters were called at one point because he had trouble breathing.

Nancy Pelosi Reelected As House Speaker In Narrow Vote

Published

Nancy Pelosi won another term as Speaker of the House of Representatives on Sunday, after a narrow vote.

80-year-old Pelosi will hold the position for a second consecutive two-year term and fourth overall, having previously been elected in 2007, 2009 and 2019.

Pelosi has served as a US representative from California since 1987. A member of the Democratic Party, she is the only woman in U.S. history to serve as Speaker and, until the inauguration of Kamala Harris as Vice President, is the highest-ranking female elected official in United States history.

As House speaker, Pelosi is second in the presidential line of succession, after the vice president.

During her first speakership, she was instrumental in the passage of many of the Obama administration’s landmark bills, including the Affordable Care Act, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and the 2010 Tax Relief Act.

Pelosi lost the speakership in 2011 after the Republican Party won a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2010 elections.

She retained her role as leader of the House Democratic Caucus and returned to the role of House minority leader. In the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats regained control of the House.

When the 116th Congress convened on January 3, 2019, Pelosi was again elected speaker, becoming the first former speaker to return to the post since Sam Rayburn in 1955.

Under Pelosi’s leadership, the House of Representatives impeached President Donald Trump on December 18, 2019.

Despite supporting the $2000 checks for struggling Americans, Pelosi, along with everyone in congress have provoked anger from citizens who see them as being out of touch with the average people.

The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) estimated in 2009 that Pelosi’s average net worth was $58 million which ranks her 13th among 25 wealthiest members of Congress.

Roll Call said Pelosi’s earnings are connected to her husband’s heavy investments in stocks that include Apple, Disney, Comcast, and Facebook. Roll Call reported that the Pelosis have $13.46 million in liabilities including mortgages on seven properties.

According to Roll Call, Pelosi and her husband hold properties “worth at least $14.65 million, including a St. Helena vineyard in Napa Valley worth at least $5 million, and commercial real estate in San Francisco”.

FAA Responds To Numerous Reports Of A UFO Over Hawaii

The FAA was notified after multiple people reported seeing an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) in the sky over Leeward Oahu on Tuesday evening. Witnesses all over the region called into 911 at around 8:30 p.m.

Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration said that there were no aircraft incidents or accidents in this area at the time of the reports, but multiple witnesses reported seeing a large blue object fall out of the sky and into the ocean.

Some of the witnesses managed to get video or photos of the incident.

Witness Misitina Sape told Hawaii News Now she captured a photo of the object at 8:26 p.m. near Haleakala Avenue in Nanakuli.

Another witness named Moriah said she had never been a believer in UFOs until she saw the object fall from the sky.

“I started calling my husband and them because they were all in the garage. I was like hey. Come look up there. See if you see what I see. They all said yea!” Moriah said.

They jumped in the car to follow the object and see what it was.

“I don’t know what it was,” she said. “This one was going so fast.”

About three miles down the road, they saw the object fall into the water.

She said that it was larger than a telephone pole but didn’t make any sound when it hit the ground.

“We called 911,” Moriah said, “For have like one cop or somebody for come out and come check em out.

She also says that they saw another light in the sky after the blue object fell into the water. She says that police saw the second light as well.

“My husband went look up and he seen the white one coming,” she said. “The white one was smaller. Was coming in the same direction as the blue one.”

FAA spokesperson Ian Gregor said the agency received a report from police Tuesday night about a possible plane down in the area “but had no aircraft disappear off radars. And no reports of overdue or missing aircraft.”

Earlier this year, the Pentagon announced the formation of a new task force that will be studying UFOs or “Unidentified Flying Objects.”

The formation of this new task force was revealed last year when the Pentagon acknowledged that military pilots were encountering aircraft that might not have been made by humans.

The new task force was officially revealed to the public after the Pentagon released declassified videos that appeared to show government aircraft interacting with UFOs in the sky.

One of the videos, taken from US Navy aircraft, seems to show the pilots chasing a UFO off the east coast of the United States.

Navy pilots reported spotting the objects flying around 30,000 feet in the air at hypersonic speeds and showing no visible engines or exhaust plumes typical of any known aircraft currently on Earth.

The new agency has been called, The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF).

Mitch McConnell’s House Vandalized Over $2,000 Checks

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had his home vandalized this week, after blocking the vote to increase stimulus payments to $2,000.

Messages like ‘WERES MY MONEY’ and ‘MITCH K1LLS THE POOR.’ were spray-painted on the building.

Police said that they don’t have any suspects.

On Saturday, McConnell released a statement to the Louisville Courier Journal which read: “Vandalism and the politics of fear have no place in our society. My wife and I have never been intimidated by this toxic playbook. We just hope our neighbors in Louisville aren’t too inconvenienced by this radical tantrum.”

In 2015, Time listed McConnell as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. McConnell is the longest-serving U.S. senator for Kentucky in history, and the longest-serving leader of U.S. Senate Republicans in history.

During the Trump administration, Senate Republicans, under McConnell’s leadership, broke records on the number of judicial nominees confirmed. Among those nominees were Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh who were recently confirmed to the Supreme Court.

McConnell’s critics have called him by a variety of different nicknames, including “Moscow Mitch”, “Cocaine Mitch”, the “Grim Reaper”, “Darth Vader”, “Rich Mitch”, “Nuclear Mitch”, and “Midnight Mitch.” On some occasions, he has even embraced these nicknames, although he was apparently unhappy with the more recent “Moscow Mitch.”

McConnell has a net worth of $35 million dollars, and many Americans feel that he is out of touch. He isn’t the only US politician that was a target for vandalism this week.

 

According to a report from TMZ this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had her house vandalized with a pig’s head and fake blood.

Spray painted in black on the white garage door were the messages “$2K,”  an apparent reference to the $2,000 COVID stimulus checks that have been held up in the U.S. Senate, as well as “CANCEL RENT!” and “WE WANT EVERYTHING!”
