  • Kenosha man, 20, who purchased an AR-15 for his underage friend, Kyle Rittenhouse, agrees to plea deal which will see him avoid jail and pay just a $2,000 fine

    01/09/2022 4:11:14 PM PST · by algore · 57 replies
    Dominick Black, 20, of Kenosha, has agreed to plead no contest to contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a non-criminal citation. He had faced two felony charges of delivering a dangerous weapon to a minor, resulting in death. Black allegedly purchased the assault rifle Rittenhouse used to kill two people and wound a third during August 2020 protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin. On Friday, Black's attorney and assistant district attorney Thomas Binger reached and filed a proposed plea agreement, which suggested Black would plead no contest to a pair of citations and pay a $2,000 fine, and the felony counts...

    The man who allegedly purchased the assault rifle Kyle Rittenhouse used during an August 2020 protest in Kenosha, Wis., agreed to plead no contest to a non-criminal citation of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and will have two felony counts dismissed as part of the agreement. Dominick Black, 20, had faced two felony charges of delivering a dangerous weapon to a minor, resulting in death. But Black's attorney and assistant district attorney Thomas Binger reached a proposed plea agreement, which Binger filed on Friday, according to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

    Editor’s note: The views expressed in the following article are that of attorney Anthony L. DeWitt and do not reflect an official stance from the USCCA. If you watched any part of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, you know there were some tremendous takeaways for concealed carriers. What follows is my analysis of the six most important lessons as a legal professional. 1. You Can Be in the Right and Still Be Wrong Kyle Rittenhouse was attacked by four different people on the night he had to shoot to save his life. His trial illustrates quite well how a person can...

    My Daily Freedom ^ | 1-05-2022 | Frank Bojazi
    A so-called author couldn't be bothered to do the bare-minimum research when she wrote her book and claimed that Kyle Rittenhouse (not guilty) had shot two Black men. The author who wrote it is named Kara Cooney and her book is called "Good Kings." At some point in the last chapter, she made a massive mistake about Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot white guys, not Black guys, and now some say she could be in deep water or up to her head in lawsuits.
  • Far-Left Daily Beast Turns on Joe Biden: “Progressives, Moderates, Republicans—Nobody Trusts Joe Biden”

    Even the far-left Daily Beast is now admitting that you can’t trust Joe Biden. Joe Biden is losing Democrats. Joe Biden had a credibility problem his whole life. He was known for telling tall tales and sniffing kids. His family has multiple financial ties with China. His son is a drug addict who left evidence of taking drugs, hanging out with hookers, and cutting deals with China and other countries. This was all recorded on his laptop. Anyone who trusted Joe Biden a year ago was a fool. Now even some of those fools are waking up. The Daily Beast...

    Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon is yet another Hollywood celebrity to blast the not-guilty verdicts in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, saying that the Illinois teenager doesn’t deserve to go free while deceptively conflating him with mass shooters. In a Twitter thread posted Saturday, the Legally Blonde and Walk the Line actress lamented a Wisconsin jury’s acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse on all charges. In a rhetorical sleight of hand, the actress inaccurately lumped Rittenhouse in with perpetrators of “senseless gun violence,” leaving out the fact that Rittenhouse acted in self-defense. She then repeated what has become a favorite talking point among left-wingers and...

    On the rebound a month after his acquittal on murder charges, Kyle Rittenhouse indicated Monday night he is not likely to forget the way media outlets trashed him. "There's going to be some media accountability coming soon," Rittenhouse said told Fox News in an interview Monday while he was in Phoenix for the AmericaFest conference hosted by the conservative group Turning Point USA. It was a one-sentence warning that should have mainstream news organizations scrambling.

    From the first reports out of Kenosha, Wisconsin, when Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself by shooting three assailants during the Black Lives Matter riots of August 2020, I've looked at this entire, gut-wrenching affair with the eyes of a father. Of course, I recognized that Rittenhouse appeared to have acted in self-defense based on the video evidence that surfaced within days of the incident. But, to me, this story was not the epic Second Amendment debate or divisive racial scream-fest cable news and social media demanded it to be. To me, this story was and still is about a 17-year-old boy....

    After Florida governor Ron DeSantis introduced legislation Wednesday in an effort to crack down on the teaching of Critical Race Theory and other ‘woke’ ideology in schools and places of employment, MSNBC race baiters declared it to be a “new effort to codify white supremacy for political gain”.DeSantis announced his Stop Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees Act (Stop W.O.K.E Act) this week, urging that his state will not tolerate the “elite-driven phenomenon” of “cultural Marxism”. DeSantis further emphasised that proponents of CRT “want to tear at the fabric of our society and our culture, really things we’ve taken for...

    MADISON, Wis. – A Madison school board candidate who described herself as “trans-a-phobic” last week has dropped out of the race. Mary Jo Walters announced she would withdraw her campaign for Seat 3 in a Facebook post Friday. “I am opting out of the run for many personal reasons,” Walters said. “I’d like to thank all that engaged in these discussions.” She now plans to start a book club. Walters drew criticism after posting transphobic comments on social media. In an interview Monday, she called herself gender critical. The former candidate for lieutenant governor wanted to reverse the district’s decision...

    This correspondent has reported extensively on the Kyle Rittenhouse incident and trial in Kenosha, Wisconsin, for AmmoLand News, with over two dozen articles in the last 14 months.Very early on I explained there was no murder case, no criminal reckless endangerment, and no firearms charge which was consistent with the law.Repeatedly, the prosecutor, Assistant District Attorney Binger, informed the court the firearms charge was based on what the prosecution believed the law had to be, rather than on what the law was.It is a microcosm of the left. Decisions are made on what the left believes reality *should be* rather...

    As it did in the Kyle Rittenhouse case, the major media relentlessly trumpeted a false story, this time about Jussie Smollett. In both cases the tales were of white supremacists committing horrific crimes. In both cases, when the fabulist tales were rejected by jurors who heard and weighed the evidence, the outcome was ignored or downplayed. But doubtless the distrust of their fellow citizens among the Black community in Kenosha and, then Chicago, and perhaps the country, was heightened by these lies. In both cases, celebrities and politicians bought and promoted the fake stories. And improbable it was unless you...

    On August 25, 2020, Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself from numerous attackers with an AR15 type (Smith & Wesson M&P 15) rifle. The rifle was not legally owned by Kyle. He had legal possession of it. This was due to a quirk in the law. People under the age of 18 have always been able to buy rifles from private owners and possess them, but they are not allowed to buy them from licensed federal dealers. Kyle Rittenhouse had given money to Dominick Black to purchase the rifle from a licensed federal dealer, with the understanding he would transfer ownership and...

    A predictive model of a polarized group, similar to the current U.S. Senate, demonstrates that when an outside threat—like war or a pandemic—fails to unite the group, the divide may be irreversible through democratic means. Published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences as part of a Dynamics of Political Polarization Special Feature, the model identifies such atypical behavior among the political elite as a powerful symptom of dangerously high levels of polarization. "We see this very disturbing pattern in which a shock brings people a little bit closer initially, but if polarization is too extreme, eventually the...

    On November 19, Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges in the shootings of Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber, and Gaige Grosskreutz in Kenosha, WI. His defense established that the teenager was acting in self-defense; the prosecution was unable to prove otherwise. Even media outlets not aligned with the conservative view were constrained to observe that among the “undisputed facts” of the case are that Rosenbaum chased and later advanced on Rittenhouse when he stood his ground; that Huber hit him with a skateboard and lunged for his rifle; and that Grosskreutz pointed a handgun at him. Yet, the young man...

    [Note: This piece is heavy on video content.] President Trump flew to Kenosha on Tuesday, and all the corrupt news media could find to hyperventilate about was the fact that he did not pay a visit to the family of Jacob Blake, the career woman-abusing criminal who was justifiably shot by the Kenosha police a couple of weeks ago. The President said he had attempted to reach out to the family, but backed off when they said they would not meet with him without their money-grubbing lawyer present. But visiting Jacob Blake’s family – who are pursuing every angle to...

    (ThyBlackMan.com) The Rittenhouse trial is over, and despite the belligerent efforts of the national mob, a young man was rightfully spared. The loudest among the mob may have been the prosecutor, corporate media, and the president of the United States, but the most insidious was Big Tech. The men and women who run Silicon Valley could not have been clearer on where they stood. They were relentless in their campaign to derail Rittenhouse’s trial, undermine his constitutional rights, and permanently defame his character. The shift in Big Tech’s “values” is as marked as it is troubling. In a few short...

    One of the most breathtaking twists during the high-drama trial of Kyle Rittenhouse was the moment that Judge Schroeder banned NBC from the courthouse after one of their journalists got caught running a red light while stalking the jury bus. “Last evening, a person who identified himself as James Morrison and claimed he was a producer for NBC News…and under the supervision of someone named Irene Byon in New York…he was following at a distance and went through a red light,” said Schroeder. “He stated he had been instructed to by Ms. Byon to follow the jury bus.” The judge...
