Alvin Bragg promises not to prosecute theft to establish ‘racial equity’ balance: ‘Crime of poverty’ | Fox News
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said during his campaign that racial equity needed to be a priority and that he didn’t believe thievery should be prosecuted since it was a “crime of poverty.”
“These cases do not belong in criminal court. The punishments are disproportionately harsh, and fall disproportionately on the backs of people of color. This makes them morally indefensible,” Bragg stated on his website. “This is why I will not prosecute most petty offenses through the traditional criminal court system… I will either dismiss these charges outright or offer the accused person the opportunity to complete a program without ever setting foot in a courtroom.”
“For too long the DA’s office has been an adjunct of the NYPD, reflexively processing what they do,” he said. Bragg added that prosecution should have its own approach and shouldn’t “reflexively” process arrests made by the NYPD.
The statements reflect those from his chief prosecutor, Meg Reiss, who was brought in to Bragg’s office. Reiss has advocated to include a critical race theory framework into prosecution years before joining the Manhattan DA. Reiss previously bragged about letting violent felons out on the streets, including a murderer, Fox News Digital reported.
Soros-Backed DA Faces Contempt of Court Charge for Refusing to Show Up at Murder Trial – Headline USA
Judge Scott Millikan filed a motion against Gardner this week, blasting her for her failure to show up in court for the trial of Jonathan Jones, 18, who is accused of fatally shooting a man in 2021. As a result of Gardner’s absence, the trial of Jones has been delayed for more than a week.
“This conduct thwarts and defeats the authority of the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis,” Millikan wrote, demanding that Gardner provide a legitimate justification for her absence.
This is not the first time Gardner has neglected her prosecutorial duties. In 2021, her team also failed to show up in court for at least three murder trials, which led to the cases being dismissed.
Rep. Stacey Plaskett threatens journalist Matt Taibbi with jail over his Twitter Files testimony (reclaimthenet.org)
Rep. Stacey Plaskett, the Democratic delegate representing the Virgin Islands in the US Congress, has intensified her attack on independent journalist Matt Taibbi.
Previously, during a House Judiciary Select Subcommittee hearing on the Federal Government’s Weaponization, Plaskett had dismissed Taibbi and Michael Shellenberger as “so-called journalists” and attempted to discredit their testimony on government pressure influencing speech restrictions on Twitter.
Plaskett sent a letter to Taibbi accusing him of perjury and hinting at a potential five-year imprisonment sentence. The letter was obtained by investigative journalist Lee Fang. In the letter, Plaskett highlights that giving false testimony to Congress carries a penalty of up to five years in prison.
While Taibbi did make a mistake, such as confusing the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), a federal government entity, with the Center for Internet Security (CIS), a nonprofit organization, Hasan failed to explain how this error invalidated the basis of the Twitter Files revelations.
Taibbi acknowledged the honest mistake in a tweet, pointing out that both organizations were part of the Election Integrity Partnership, a Stanford University initiative aimed at monitoring election-related social media discourse.
Plaskett alleges that the mistake in confusing CISA and CIS was “intentional,” attempting to undermine the idea that the government is stifling speech, while, at the same time, threatening a journalist with imprisonment, effectively weaponizing her power against a member of the free press.
Former CIA Deputy Director ADMITS Blinken played central role in covering up Hunter Biden Laptop Story | Sara A. Carter (saraacarter.com)
Secretary of State Antony Blinken is being investigated by the Committee on the Judiciary and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for his prominent role in persuading 51 former intelligence officials to falsely discredit the “New York Post story regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop as supposed Russian disinformation” during the 2020 Presidential election. The intelligence assessment led to a nearly blanket censorship of investigative stories exposing the alleged corruption of President Joe Biden and his family and kept the truth hidden from the American people before the election, according to a letter released Thursday night by the committees and obtained by SaraACarter.com.
During the campaign, Blinken was a senior campaign advisor to then former Vice President Joe Biden and recruited the direct assistance of then former Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Michael Morell, who was one of the 51 signatories of the public statement. Biden used this false letter signed by former senior intelligence officials, including five former heads of the CIA, from both parties, on October 22, 2020 to disparage President Donald Trump During the final presidential debate.

The Biden State Department is telling Americans to stay put and hide.
Iran Navy Forces US Submarine to Surface in Gulf | Newsmax.com
Iran’s navy forced a U.S. submarine to surface as it entered the Gulf, Iranian navy commander Shahram Irani told state television on Thursday, in the latest report of an apparent confrontation between Iranian and U.S. forces in the Gulf.
“The U.S. submarine was approaching while submerged, but the Iranian submarine Fateh detected it and carried out… maneuvers to force it to surface as it went through the Strait (of Hormuz). It had also entered into our territorial waters but … it corrected its course after being warned,” Irani said.
“This submarine was doing its best, using all its capacities, to pass in total silence and without being detected,” Irani said. “We will certainly reflect to international bodies the fact that it had violated our border.”
Hal Turner Radio Show – CLAIM: NASA Satellite Crashed in Kiev Ukraine. REALITY: Russia Downed NATO Military Satellite
The “OFFICIAL” Story: The fall of the old 300-kilogram satellite marked RHESSI ( Reuven Ramas High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager ) was expected to happen in 2018 and today entered the Earth’s atmosphere for the first time in almost 21 years. NASA said a few days ago that it would monitor the fall, but did not specify the time or place of impact.
What __REALLY__ Happened
Russia downed a NATO military spy satellite.
They _appear_ to have accomplished this by utilizing their brand new Electronic Warfare system, designed specifically to affect Geo-Stationary satellites.
In order to affect a Geo-stationary satellite, Russia’s new system must be able to jam all the way out at 22,500 miles from earth. But if that same Electronic Warfare system was used to hit a lower earth orbiting satellite, the high powered radio emissions would simply overwhelm all systems onboard, likely causing the satellite to completely fail and fall to earth.
That appears to be what has actually taken place. Sources inside NATO are saying privately that a NATO (West) spy satellite was “taken out” over Ukraine. In fact, not only is NATO angry, they’re quite shocked, both that the Russian tried, and that they succeeded! Another escalation . . .
Ukrainian Armed Forces Chief Briefs US Europe Commander on Kiev’s Needs (sputnikglobe.com)
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Valerii Zaluzhnyi, the head of Ukraine’s armed forces, said on Thursday he had discussed Ukraine’s military needs with Supreme Allied Commander Europe and Commander of the US European Command Christopher Cavoli.
“We discussed Ukraine’s priorities for weapon, hardware and munition [deliveries]. I briefed Gen. Cavoli about the facts on the ground,” Commander-in-Chief Zaluzhnyi said on social media.
The phone conversation was held in the lead-up to the Ukraine Defense Contact Group meeting of senior Ukrainian and NATO military officials at Ramstein air base in Germany on Friday.
NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said during a visit to Kiev on Thursday that allies were committed to delivering more jets, tanks and armored vehicles to Ukraine. He estimated that NATO’s military aid to Ukraine had topped $165 billion since February 2022.
Russia has warned Ukraine’s donors that it sees military shipments as legitimate targets. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said that NATO allies arming and training Ukrainians is tantamount to a direct involvement in the conflict.
China ‘Shoots Down’ F-22 Raptor In Latest Threat Assessment; Calls F-35 Lightning II ‘Bigger Threat’ In Indo Pacific (eurasiantimes.com)
Chinese researchers have conducted a study comparing US warplanes and the threats they possess to Beijing and its military. The study calls the F-35 a bigger threat than the F-22 in the Indo-Pacific region.
Despite the F-22’s reputation as the most powerful stealth aircraft globally, the findings suggest that the newer F-35 poses a greater threat to Chinese forces in these particular regions.
According to the SCMP report, the study was published in the Chinese language journal Modern Defense Technology. The research examined the threat posed by different US military aircraft during a penetrating counter-air operation at varying distances from China’s coastline.
The F-22 and F-35 warplanes were found to be posing a “significant” threat to Chinese defenses throughout different stages of the operation. The study suggests that the F-35A will likely be more adaptable and efficient in any potential conflict in China’s nearby waters. The research highlights the aircraft’s ability to perform multiple functions and its potential to carry out various missions as key factors contributing to its superiority over the F-22.
The Chinese researchers said, “The F-35A poses a greater threat than the F-22A due to its more advanced avionics systems and multirole capabilities.” The F-35 fighter aircraft has emerged as a significant asset in the region due to its state-of-the-art technology, exceptional capabilities, and remarkable adaptability in a wide range of military operations.
The United States and its allies are already operating a considerable number of F-35 fighter jets close to China. But the F-22s, unlike the F-35s, are not widely available and are exclusively operated by the United States. Additionally, they are often deployed on a rotational basis due to their limited numbers.
Furthermore, by 2035, more than 300 F-35 warplanes are projected to be stationed in the Indo-Pacific region. Several nations, including Australia, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and the United States, are among the key users.
The deployment of these advanced fighter jets in large numbers is a testament to their importance and effectiveness in modern military operations.
Senators introduce bill to create digital identity for all Americans – LeoHohmann.com
U.S. Senators Kyrsten Sinema, an independent of Arizona, and Cynthia Lummis, Republican of Wyoming, have introduced Senate Bill 884, also known as “the Improving Digital Identity Act of 2023.”
The bill was introduced March 21 and ordered to proceed out of committee on March 29 without amendments and with a favorable recommendation.
The bill’s text states:
“The lack of an easy, affordable, reliable, and secure way for organizations, businesses, and government agencies to identify whether an individual is who they claim to be online creates an attack vector that is widely exploited by adversaries in cyberspace and precludes many high-value transactions from being available online. Incidents of identity theft and identity fraud continue to rise in the United States, where more than 293,000,000 people were impacted by data breaches in 2021.”
The above section of the bill is extremely vague and left wide open for bureaucrats and technocrats to require a digital ID to perform any function considered “high-risk, high-value online services,” up to and including logging onto the internet.
Globalists with ties to the United Nations and World Economic Forum have for several years advocated a digital ID requirement as a way of removing so-called “disinformation” from the internet. Once everyone has a digital ID, it becomes easy to restrict everyday human movement and activity based on one’s social credit score, like in China, which Klaus Schwab has stated is the model for many other nations. If your score dips below a certain point, you are now a “high risk” individual, and your digital ID would simply be flagged. The government, working in collusion with Big Tech in their ongoing public-private partnership, simply block you from logging onto the internet. You can no longer have a bank account, get a driver’s license, receive healthcare, obtain a passport, or any of those other “high risk” privileges.
