Mayor LaToya Cantrell Says She Won’t Repay $30,000 in Travel Expenses
"So the mayor of New Orleans is a Democrat. It's a woman named not to assume her gender. Latoya cantrell. And so officials are trying to determine if the mayor has to repay almost $30,000 in taxpayer money. For trips that she took to France and Switzerland. Now. I never understood when these mayors. So I've got to go to Ireland or these governors have to go to, why do you have to go to Ireland for? The governor of my state, we had to go to Ireland. I'm like, really? Because his last name's Murphy. So I'm like, okay, was this a family to go see the place of your birth? Or is this really, how are you helping the state by traveling to Ireland? I don't understand. What couldn't be done over a Zoom call? I was curious. But so they used their power and privilege. And of course, they travel and we pay for it. So she's had a bunch of brushes with some ethics problems in the past. And so she's saying that she's not going to repay the money. She took this summer, she went from Washington dulles. To Switzerland. Now, I'm sure their flights leave in Louisiana. But I'm sure she probably didn't want to transfer. She wanted to fly from New Orleans to JFK. Or Washington dulles, and so she, I don't know how she got there. But anyway. So she refuses to refund the money. And technically, she's supposed to refund the money because she flew first class. So during a press conference, she was asked about this. Listen to her response because there's more to this. Listen to her response. All expenses and car doing business on behalf of the city of New Orleans will not be reimbursed to the city of new Orleans. One thing is clear. I do my job and I will continue to do it with distinction with dignity and integrity every step of the way.

It's going to include weapons and equipment provided through the Ukraine security assistance initiative and what it's going to do is to allow Ukraine to acquire air defense systems, artillery systems, munitions, countermand aerial systems and radars.

Just in ending earlier, there was some controversy Nelson Cruz ripped a line drive down the left field line and the ball landed foul, but it looked like it might have glanced off the glove of the rangers outstretched third baseman. What did you see, Nelly? It was obvious I saw the right way. You heat it in, it wasn't the fair territory, you know. Like he says, I judge my call. Probably thought for him to see the baseball and see what the defender was in the situation. I guess any health and all the guys. But yeah, that hurt us yet. If called fair, would have given the Nats two base runners and no outs in the 8th instead Cruz went on in that at bat to ground into a double play and obviously the Nats go on to lose three to two.

Were We Funding Gain-of-Function Research in Ukraine?
"With us right now is key throws, Keith, I'm gonna ask you very bluntly simply in plainly. Were we engaging or funding in gain of function research in Ukraine? That's a good question, Charlie. I think we were engaged in funding bioweapons labs in Ukraine. What they were doing there, I don't know. But I do believe that it's going to show if we ever get the information out. That the bioweapons labs that are in Ukraine were funded in whole or at least in part by the United States. And so walk us through it. Walk us through how many laboratories there are. How common is this Keith? You know, you're very well educated and well traveled. You've been in lots of different theaters doing lots of different sorts of things. Is it common for us just to stand up kind of funding operations of biochemical research, especially next to foreign adversaries? I'm going to jump into history for a second because it'll explain this to you. And it's something that you and I both have a big concern about. And that's the great reset. The bioweapons labs, you look at them and you think, why is Ukraine important? And I started asking myself this. Friends of mine, one dear friend who passed rich Higgins. We talked about this at great length. Why is Ukraine so important? And if you look back at their history, western Ukraine was an integral part of the Nazis during World War II of the system. The SS had bases there. They had headquarters there. In fact, the hundreds of thousands of Jews killed and Ukraine were killed by western Ukrainians. And the reason I say that is after the war, Alan dulles, former director of the CIA back in the day, helped several German scientists Nazi scientists go to Ukraine to avoid the Nuremberg trials. So let's go fast forward today. Again, I ask you, why is Ukraine important? Well, what we're seeing and there's a lot of information that shows this is we're seeing a lot of certain type of illnesses or diseases, things that we don't normally see have major outbreaks in Ukraine. There's a lot of open-source reporting on this, and I can send you the links to the last 5

Former Airline Ticket Agent Recalls Helping 9/11 Hijackers Board Flight

Done by gio benitez when you come in here and you see that ticket counter does it bring you back to that morning. Everything brings you back to that morning. Vaughn alex is talking about the morning. That changed our world. Chaos in new york at the moment.

They were looking back and forth and then they need to be lying for where. I was working by. Von was at the american airlines ticket counter. Training to age we were just sitting around and too late.

Remembering 9/11, 20 Years Later
"At each american airlines flight seventy seven took off from dulles international airport outside of washington. Dc the boeing. Seven fifty seven was headed to los angeles like the other two flights. Sarah just talked about with sixty four people on board to pilots four flight attendants fifty eight passengers including three elementary school. Children selected for a trip hosted by national geographic. All five of these hijackers were flagged by security for extra scrutiny for one reason or another including that one of them didn't have a photo. Id and agents found them to be suspicious. The only consequence of being flagged for this extra scrutiny ended up being that they're checked bags were held off the plane until it was confirmed that they had boarded three of the hijackers set off metal detectors and had extra screening before boarding the plane. The screeners didn't resolve. What set off the alarms and allowed the hijackers to board the plane anyway and this seems unthinkable today and the reason that it seems unthinkable today is because we have all been flying in recent years in a post nine eleven world and i think this is one moment to kind of flag as a way in which our our everyday lives substantially changed after nine eleven when you read about the way security was conducted. Then it's just unimaginable compared to what we do now. The five hijackers boarded the plane at seven. Fifty a m two of them set in coach in three and first class. The plane was scheduled to depart at eight ten took off at eight twenty and reached its cruising altitude at eight forty six.
Michael J. Knowles Criticizes Biden Admin for No True Vetting Process
"Right? So Jen Psaki gets up at the podium. They left their people behind in Afghanistan. If you after pledging they wouldn't right. And she says, Well, we can't let those planes leave because we're not sure we can vet them. So I'm thinking in my head, Michael, I'm like All right, So we have American citizens, But I'm sure somebody knows who they are. Maybe just take the chance. We'll get him to the military base and figure it out there, right? No, no. Vetting is a big deal to them. So then Stephen Miller tweets out this new CR this budget where the Democrats want to bring a bunch of Afghan nationals over and basically dump all the vetting. So I'm thinking maybe the hostages should just declare their Afghan nationals renounce American citizenship and come on over your your thoughts on that. Well, it's already happened. I had a brilliant strategy because we've we've brought tens of thousands of Afghans over. We've had people who were previously deported. Arrive at Washington Dulles Airport. There was a man who came to the United States from Afghanistan before the year 2000. He was here in in the year 2000. He was deported. For rape, and now he's made it back on. I guess there wasn't much vetting there. There were people who were on the terror watch list on the no fly list in the UK who arrived from Afghanistan there. I guess it wasn't a whole lot of vetting going on them. But when it's American citizens, then it's a different set of standards. And I think the key to understanding what's going on here because we we talk all the time about the hypocrisy of the left the hypocrisy of gem sake and Joe Biden. But it's not hypocrisy. It's hierarchy. It's a different set of rules for the left than there is for the right a different set of rules. Foreign nationals who are coming into this country, in some cases, many cases illegally than it is for Americans. That's what they're playing by. And so when we try to shame them with hypocrisy. I mean, it points out the illogic of what you're saying. It points out have disingenuous and dishonest. They are, but they don't care. They know that there's a different set of rules. They're the
