    The photographer shoved to the ground by Davante Adams after the Raiders-Chiefs "MNF" game has officially filed a police report against the NFL superstar, claiming he was injured during the incident and had to go to the hospital.

    The Department of Justice is well aware that the Proud Boys who attended the Stop the Steal rally on January 6 were not violent and did not conspire to enter the Capitol—yet are prosecuting them on conspiracy charges anyway, FBI documents obtained by Gateway Pundit reveal. Five members of the group are currently in pre-trial detention on federal charges: Enrique Tarrio, Joseph Biggs, Ethan Nordean, Dominic Pezzola and Zachary Rehl. A whistleblower leaked “a treasure trove” of exculpatory documents, and text messages—some marked “Highly Sensitive”—to the Gateway Pundit reporter Cara Castronuova. “These documents would be buried forever and never see...

    Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Mo., responded to a recent Kansas City Star article appearing to link her faith to "White Christian nationalism," which the congresswoman said tried to make her look like a "radical." The Missouri lawmaker is running for Sen. Roy Blunt's open seat in Missouri’s crowded GOP primary this August and was the subject of story titled, "Running God's way: Can Vicky Hartzler's 'conservative biblical values' win a Senate seat?" The article was published by the KC Star on Easter Sunday. Reporter Daniel Desrochers suggested Hartzler's Christian views about returning the country to its traditional values mirrored "White Christian...

    Kansas City, Missouri Mayor Quinton Lucas (D) on Sunday said he is facing two challenges as his municipality battles COVID-19: misinformation regarding vaccinations and opposition from the political right when it comes to mask mandates and other mitigation practices. Asked by moderator Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation” what is holding him back from enacting a citywide mask mandate to tame the spread of COVID-19, Lucas pointed to the “political challenge” he has received from the state of Missouri.

    In a recent article aired on National Public Radio affiliate, Kansas City Police were given a platform to blame increasing crime rates on the restoration of Second Amendment rights.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union on Monday sent a letter demanding a Kansas City, Missouri school district return two LGBTQ-themed books to library shelves. The North Kansas City School District pulled “All Boys Aren’t Blue” and “Fun House” from high schools this month in response to parent complaints. The district is reviewing the titles, and the books are expected to be discussed during a Monday school board meeting. In a letter to school officials, the ACLU of Missouri said removing the books violates students’ First Amendment rights by restricting their access to ideas. “Students must...

    Aaron Rodgers won't be on the field when the Green Bay Packers take on the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday. The reigning league MVP has tested positive for COVID-19, per CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora, shortly after practice squad quarterback Kurt Benkert was also placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list with a positive test. That leaves Jordan Love as the only other quarterback on the Packers roster and guarantees he'll get the start against Patrick Mahomes and Co. in Week 9.

    Football fans have blasted a historian's woke op-ed which claims that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' name is problematic for 'romanticizing' cutthroat pirates. Jamie L.H. Goodall, a staff historian at the U.S. Army Center of Military History, published her Washington Post op-ed on Friday ahead of Super Bowl LV, in which the Buccaneers faced off against the Kansas City Chiefs for the NFL championship. 'While this celebration of piracy seems like innocent fun and pride in a local culture, there is danger in romanticizing ruthless cutthroats who created a crisis in world trade when they captured and plundered thousands of ships...

    Eric Greitens was last among major Republican candidates for Senate in second quarter fundraising, underscoring fears that the disgraced former governor will make Democrats competitive for the seat if he secures the nomination. Greitens’ campaign brought in about $449,000, well behind Attorney General Eric Schmitt, the fundraising frontrunner with $1.3 million. The latest campaign finance filing shows that major Missouri Republican donors continue to view him as toxic after he resigned in 2018 amid multiple scandals, including allegations of violent sexual abuse and blackmail.

    VIDEO Perhaps someday the Kansas City Chiefs as well as the rest of the NFL will finally realize that the Magic Goose that lays the golden eggs that enables their players to become millionaires is their fan base. And when you alienate your fans as the Chiefs did in their game with the Houston Texans on Thursday you kill that Golden Goose. No fans, no golden eggs aka revenue. When those same players end up as forklift operators to make a living, will they still think all the current SJW virtue signaling had been worth it? In this video...
