Hurricane Looters Just Got Priceless Surprise As Florence Rips Through North Carolina

Published

on

As Hurricane Florence rips through and dumps tons of rain on the Carolinas, people either got out when told to or battened down the hatches for the store. The flooding is epic and a number of people have perished because of the storm. But these people are tough and have already started putting the pieces of their lives back together and they are helping each other get through this disaster.

Looting has become a serious issue in these states. Some are putting up signs that say, “Looters will be shot on sight!” The police have emptied out their jails and are aggressively hunting these criminals down. Lawlessness will not be tolerated.

Hurricane looters are getting a priceless surprise during all this as the police come after them full force. County sheriffs across North Carolina are arresting these criminals for stealing during the storm… it is, after all, a felony.

Authorities in Brunswick County, North Carolina, have arrested at least five men for allegedly looting abandoned businesses, cars, and homes throughout the county located just north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. No word if anyone has been shot for looting, but if you believe the signs out there, it is a distinct possibility.

From Breitbart:

“It’s a big task because our main priority is protecting lives,” Brunswick County, North Carolina sheriff Jon Ingram, told FOX Business’ Neil Cavuto Saturday.

“Florence made landfall in North Carolina as a Category 1 hurricane but its strength has caused forecasters to downgrade it to a tropical storm. Up to 14 deaths have been reported as a result of the storm, which has ravaged homes along the Carolina coast and caused massive flooding.

“Police officers in Wilmington, North Carolina, also arrested five people Saturday evening for allegedly ransacking a Dollar General store, and officers reported looting at a Family Dollar store downtown when they noticed the store’s windows had been busted in. Charges are pending against the individuals, authorities said.

“It’s just unfortunate that people look for these opportunities to prey on the vulnerabilities of these people when the situation is at its worst,” Ingram said. “We are trying our best to make sure we can contain that as much as possible.’”

I wrote on this yesterday as well concerning the lone camerawoman and her crew from WECT 6 that caught this on video. She bravely watched and reported as looters streamed in and out of a Family Dollar store in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Some tried to hide their faces and a number of them flipped her off as she was reporting. She eventually had to retreat out of concerns for her and her crew’s safety. The police have now arrested at least five people as noted previously who were caught on camera there looting. At first, the owners of the store did not want to pursue charges but after speaking with the police, that has now changed thank goodness.

From WECT 6:

“After the looting, District Attorney Ben David reiterated a statement he said ahead of Hurricane Florence hitting the coast: “There is a vacancy sign on our jail.”

“David and Judge J. Corpening allowed inmates with low-level misdemeanors to be released on their own recognizance while others were transported to other detention facilities to make room for anyone who takes advantage of this situation.

“We have room for people who are going to show the worst in humanity during this. If that means going into unoccupied homes because people have left or looting property that’s exposed to the elements or price gouging that comes in the wake of clean up,” David said.

“David said his advice to the chief of police is to prosecute looters to the fullest extent of the law. A business can decide whatever they want to do civilly, but criminally law enforcement has been advised to move forward.

“It is a felony,” David said. “These are serious crimes, and they are going to be seriously punished.”

“In regards to the looting at the Family Dollar, David said there are people that can be identified by watching the video. He encourages people to report anyone they recognize.”

The storm was only a few hours old when the looting started. There was no dire need here. This was opportunistic theft, plain and simple. Every one of those thieves needs to be hunted down and arrested for doing this. It sure didn’t take long for the veneer of civil society to slip in Wilmington and in other places.

Cory Booker Sexual Assault Accuser Posts Update & We Now Might Know Why He’s So Theatrical

Published

on

...

* By

Senator Corey Booker, aka ‘Spartacus,’ has been accused of sexual assault, and it’s not from who you’d think.

If the allegations are true, it might explain why he’s so theatrical on the Senate floor.

Yep, you guessed it, Booker has been accused of assault by a gay man.

I’m sure the Democrats will call for an immediate investigation by the FBI. Oh wait, they only do that to Republicans.

The Gateway Pundit is reporting:

“An anonymous gay male stepped forward today and released a shocking description on how he was sexually assaulted by Senator Cory Booker back in 2014.

The man claims Booker came to his workplace to speak, met him as he was coming out of the men’s room, and then pulled him back into the restroom and sexually assaulted him.

The young man is a gay man and Democrat. The man tells a very detailed analysis on what took place at his work.

The man says he reached out to Ronan Farrow but the #MeToo reporter did not show much interest in his story.

The Gateway Pundit reached out to his attorney Harmeet Dhillon who told us — The man is considering the situation and has no further comment at this time.

The accuser posted an update following his initial statement.

The man says he suspects his accusations will be ignored because he is a man and not a woman. He also believes it may be too late for him to call for an investigation.

Maybe the FBI should get involved and open up an investigation on the New Jersey senator?

What’s fair is fair, right?

“Cory Booker Sexually Assaulted Me and why it won’t matter to the #metoo movement

Yes, you read that right. The man who would be the modern incarnation of the Thracian Gladiator turned rebellion leader, once tried to aggressively force me to give him a blowie in my (then) workplace restroom. That may be a hard pill to swallow, given Mr. Booker’s distinguished political pedigree as a champion of liberal populist issues and marginalized communities. But despite his whimsical penchant for theatrical displays of impassioned
defiance, he’s just another asshole.

Now I know what you might be thinking if you’re a Booker backer. You’re thinking that I’m full of shit. But before you jump to that conclusion, let me tell you a little about myself. If we were to travel just 4 years back in time, you and I would find solidarity on the subject of Cory Booker. As a matter of fact, he was a hero of mine. I was and still am, a liberal in principal with a record of voting exclusively for Democrats since I was 18 with the exception of the 2016 election cycle. But it was in the summer of 2014, when Senator Booker visited my workplace, that my political worldview began to shift.

I had the chance to meet and speak with him at some length in an informal group setting. I made it quite clear that I was a great admirer of his, especially with regard to his record of being an advocate of the LGBT community. I left the meeting prior to the rest of the group, just as everyone was finishing up and went to use the restroom. It was there that Booker and I bumped into each other again for what would prove to be a much less pleasant
interaction.

Here is a description of the incident as I described it to a lawyer:

I stopped to use one of the building’s single-occupancy restrooms. Upon washing my hands prior to leaving, I heard knocking on the door. When it comes to these restrooms it is customary to knock first in case someone is using it, even though there is an inner lock. When I opened the door, Mr. Booker was there. He smiled and very gregariously said “Hey!” We engaged in some brief idle chitchat in the entryway and then he asked me to speak in private. What happened next, happened so fast that it was hard for me to comprehend what was going on. It was one of those surreal moments where what was happening was such a deviation and such a perversion of one’s natural daily routine that I hardly knew how to react. He pulled me into the restroom, albeit not too forcefully and slowly pushed me against the restroom wall. He said that “Being a hero was a serious turn-on”. He continued, “The Senate appreciates fine citizens like you. Especially this Senator.” He then put his left hand on my groin, over my jeans and began to rub. I seem to remember saying something like “What is happening?” It was a bit like having vertigo. He then used his other hand to grab my left hand with his right and pulled it over to touch him. At the same time, he disengaged from rubbing me and used his left hand to push me to my knees from my shoulder for what was clearly a move to have me perform oral sex on him. At that point, I pulled away quite violently and told him I had to go. I did not see him again before he left.

If you find that far fetched, then this next part might give you reason to dismiss the rest of this story completely. I am a gay man. If you’re still with me, I should be clear that I am not making any suggestions contradicting Cory Booker’s public stance on his own sexual orientation. In my experience, straight men are fairly non-discriminating in terms of their receptiveness to the prospect of oral sex. And despite the unusual cultural trend towards pathologizing people we don’t know, I make no claim to know what Mr. Booker considers himself to be privately in terms of sexual labels. But if I were to hazard a guess as to his motivation, I would say that he saw an opportune moment to exploit what he thought to be a devoted sycophant. But that turned out to be a serious miscalculation.

Now I realize that I have been pretty vague on the details. And there’s a reason for that. I’ve struggled with a history of abuse in my life going as far back as childhood but I’ve been able to manage the enduring trauma for the most part. Just 3 years prior to my encounter with Mr. Booker, I was subjected to sexual harassment from an employer. Subsequent to disclosing the incident, I was swiftly fired despite providing definitive proof and involving a third party investigation. But I got over that incident. And I learned the unfortunate cynical lesson that coming forward with the truth can oftentimes be more punishing than rewarding. But with Booker it wasn’t just harassing words. It was physical. And he wasn’t some supervisor who held sway over my job. He was and is a highly influential, political power player. He could have (and still could) destroy my life if I were to disclose my name and the full facts of my case. So as with my previous experience, I initially let it go. And I feel the need to reiterate that this was someone I looked up to. Do you have any idea how disenchanting an experience like that must feel like?

Fast forward 2 jobs, 3 therapists and one suicide attempt later to the latter half of last month. Watching Mr. Booker’s histrionic defense of alleged sexual assault victims was so laughably ironic, so jarringly cringeworthy and so triggering that it put me into a state of depressed rumination. I wanted so badly to speak out but I was highly ambivalent about the consequences of going public. So I reached out to two lawyers anonymously. One of them got back to me; Harmeet Dhillon of the Dhillon Law Group, a 1st amendment trial lawyer and RNC committee member. Once we established privileged communication, I told her my story; disclosing my real name and the details of my case. This included the precise date, location, some corroborating photographic evidence and two possible hearsay witnesses that I had told my story to subsequent to the incident. It was, at the very least, much more probative evidence than what was brought forth during the Kavanaugh debacle. Ms. Dhillon responded to me with respectful immediacy, offering candid advice and compassion tempered with pragmatism. And in a refreshingly rare act of bipartisanship, she recommended I contact Ronan Farrow, the father of the modern #metoo movement himself.”

The American Thinker had more:

“Sen. Spartacus Booker of New Jersey is shaping to be quite a piece of work.

After grandstanding through the Senate confirmation hearings about the evils of sexual harassment as he sat there in high-eyed judgment on the blameless Judge Brett Kavanaugh, calling himself ‘Spartacus’ for his feigned moral courage, he found himself exposed as a hypocrite as word of his 1992 first-person essay about how he sexually harassing a woman made its way back to print, in that Internet-is-forever reality.

Not much moral authority over Kavanaugh, pal.

Now it’s gotten even worse: Some man has come out and said Booker sexually assaulted him, in 2014.

The accusation, published on GatewayPundit’s page and given a curt no-comment from Booker’s lawyer, appears substantial.

Apparently, sexual harassment has been a way of life for him, given the long span in years between each fairly strong looking accusation. And this is one of the Democrats’ new generation of leaders, the answer to its Jurassic Park of current leadership.

Booker is a grandstander, a posturer, an attention-seeker, and now a sexual problem. Bob Menendez, the other New Jersey Senator, seems to be getting a run for his money. When are New Jersey’s voters going to get rid of these people?”

Thief Steals Combat Vet’s Military Mementos – ‘I’d Give My Soul To Get Those Things Back’

Published

* By

Stealing from others is a despicable act in & of itself, but stealing from a veteran who fought for our freedom & security is a whole other ball game. What kind of scumbag would do this kind of thing? We’re hoping this vet gets his belongings back.

Fox 4 Kansas City reported:

“A Mobile veteran served our country overseas more than a decade ago, but the mementos he brought home were stolen.

Carl Sanders Jr. served for four years and had one tour in Iraq.

Most of his memories were packed up in a duffel bag, but it ended up being stolen.

“I don’t regret one second of anything I’ve done serving my country and the people I served with,” he said.

To remember that time in his life he packed up a bag filled with most of his memories. Things like an Iraqi flag and helmet he found on a mission, but most importantly his uniform.

“It’s the boots I lived in, I fought in,” Sanders said. “A soldiers boots and soldiers uniform that’s more important than anything.”

Losing those keepsakes is difficult for Sanders to swallow as he tries to never forget his military service.

“Those things actually reminded me of who I served with, where I’ve been, some of the things we’ve had to do and I don’t ever want to forget that,” Sanders said. “I don’t ever want to let that go.”

While he still has some things, a few pictures and some patches, what was stolen from him goes beyond a uniform.

“I still got a lot of memories in my head, some are hard to remember, some are hard to forget, but as time goes it kind of fades away,” Sanders said. “That’s why I’m glad I do have some of these things, I can always pick up these pictures and look back and always remember.”

While he holds onto what he does have, he hopes the thief realizes what was taken.

“Outside of monetary value things go a lot further than that,” Sanders said. “You never know what something might mean to someone, maybe the smallest little object.”

A soldier’s treasured memories from a half a world away, stolen from a man who served this country.

“God forgive me, but I would give my soul to get those things back,” Sanders said.

From what little he does have left, he is currently putting together a scrapbook for his family so his service is always remembered.”
