In his first days back, Braxton McElhaney, a sophomore at West Jordan High School had his hat taken right off of his head, then when trying to retrieve it back he was spit on and attacked.

 

Braxton in an interview with Utah (KUTV) had this to say: “The two girls, they kept antagonizing me, calling me a racist, saying I look r—–ed, and calling me a white supremacist, white privilege, because I was wearing my Trump hat,” McElhaney said.

KUTV reports:
He said two female students ripped his hat off, stomped on his glasses, threw his American flag face mask in the dumpster, and spit in his face. Braxton said he had to battle the urge to fight back, but kept calm.
Braxton’s family says the school acted quickly to investigate. His mom, Meshyalah McElhaney, said she can barely get through watching the video.

The West Jordan Police Department is involved and criminal charges are being filed by Braxton’s family.

It’s hard enough being a teenager in high school, now you have to worry if you support the president of the United States you will be attacked. The tolerant left strikes again.

6 people charged in attempted kidnapping of Michigan governor

Members of the militia group conducted surveillance, held training sessions and meetings, and purchased weapons.


Six people have been charged in an alleged domestic terrorist plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, according to newly unsealed court records.

The records – unsealed Thursday – revealed that the federal government charged 6 men for conspiring alongside a militia group, “discussing the violent overthrow of certain government and law enforcement components,” according to the Detroit Free Press, via the Daily Caller.

Members of the militia group conducted surveillance, held training sessions and meetings, and purchased weapons.

But, their plan fell through after the FBI was able to infiltrate the group with informants, according to the Free Press.

Adam Fox, Barry Croft, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta were all charged with conspiracy to commit kidnapping by the U.S. District Court in the western district of Michigan, according to the report.

The FBI originally became aware of the plot through social media earlier this year. According to the affidavit, group members discussed the “violent overthrow of certain government and law enforcement” including Gov. Whitmer, and “agreed to take violent action.”

Their goal was to put the governor on trial for treason.

FBI special agent Richard J. Trask II said in the criminal complaint that the men had Whitmer’s vacation home under surveillance in August and September.

The men had purchased an 800,000-volt Taser and night goggles, and the FBI also believes they were seeking to buy explosives during the week of October 4 through the 10 to use in the kidnapping, Trask said, according to the Free Press.

U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider in the Eastern District of Michigan referred to the allegations as “deeply disturbing.”

“All of us can disagree about politics, but those disagreements should never, ever result in violence,” Schneider said, via the Caller. “We owe our thanks to the men and women of law enforcement who uncovered this plot and have worked so hard to protect Gov. Whitmer.”

But, this vicious plot is not the first time Whitmer has been under fire.

The governor has been the recent target of weekly protests against her coronavirus restrictions, which began in April, which were some of the strictest lockdowns in the country.

Whitmer said that during these protests, she received threats of violence and was concerned about some people carrying weapons, the Caller reports.

The 6 men could face up to life in prison.

A WHOPPING 56% of Americans Say They are Better off Today (Mid-Pandemic) than Under Obama-Biden

Gallup's most recent survey found a majority of voters said they are better off now than they were four years ago, while 32% said they are worse off


A recent Gallup survey found that a whopping 56 percent of Americans say they are better off now under President Trump–in the middle of a pandemic–than they were four years ago when President Obama was in office.

Gallup writes:

During his presidential campaign in 1980, Ronald Reagan asked Americans, “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” Since then, this question has served as a key standard that sitting presidents running for reelection have been held to.

Gallup’s most recent survey found a clear majority of registered voters (56%) saying they are better off now than they were four years ago, while 32% said they are worse off.

Gallup compared the 56 percent number to 2012, during the Obama-Biden Administration when just 45 percent of Americans could say they felt they were better off. In 2004, 47 percent of Americans said they were better off and in 1992, that number was at 38 percent.

President Trump responded to the news, writing on Twitter, “The Gallup Poll has just come out with the incredible finding that 56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (Biden). The highest number on record! Pretty amazing!”
