    Two St. Louis deputies were dismissed last month for working on progressive Rep. Cori Bush’s security detail without permission — days before the “Squad” member defended spending tens of thousands of campaign dollars on private protection while pushing to “defund the police.” St. Louis Sheriff Vernon Betts told KMOV that he initially warned now-former deputies Tylance Jackson and Maurice Thompson to quit moonlighting as muscle for Bush (D-Mo.) and fill out the proper forms after they accompanied her on a tour of St. Louis jails in April. However, Betts said he was told by Veterans Affairs Police several weeks later...

    Both the city of St. Louis and St. Louis County have reinstated their mask mandates. Masks are once again required in indoor public settings regardless of vaccination status. But three municipalities within the county announced that they will not enforce the mandate. Chesterfield, Wildwood, and Eureka have declared that they will not use law enforcement to uphold the mandates. Chesterfield City Administrator Mike Geisel responded to The Epoch Times’ request for comment, saying “Chesterfield WILL adhere to the County Order, as we are legally required to do. All city facilities and staff will comply with the county directive.” But he...

    It is much too soon to take a trip in the U.S. without a face mask. As the delta variant of the Covid-19 virus drives up case counts in every state, travelers — both vaccinated and unvaccinated — are encountering local mask mandates for indoor locations in Las Vegas, St. Louis and many other areas around the country. Mask mandates may soon return on the national level, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reportedly examining whether to reinstate mask guidance even for fully vaccinated people in public places. Yesterday, infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN’s...
  • St. Louis mandates masks indoors regardless of vaccination status, recommends masks outdoors

    St. Louis County in Missouri is mandating face masks for everyone over the age of 5 when indoors regardless of vaccination status amid the spread of the delta variant, officials announced Friday. Masks are also "strongly encouraged" for groups when outdoors. "We’ve lost more than 500 St. Louisans to COVID-19, and if our region doesn’t work together to protect one another, we could see spikes that overwhelm our hospital and public health systems," Dr. Fredrick Echols, acting director of health for the City of St. Louis, said Friday. St. Louis County reported 241 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday,...
  • Kimberly Gardner’s St Louis Prosecutors Don’t Show Up To Court, Known Felon Accused of First Degree Murder Released

    This is just incredible…. jaw dropping. Circuit Attorney Kimberly M Gardner is the same prosecutor filing charges against the McCloskeys for defending their home in Saint Louis. Incredibly her office was charging a previously convicted felon with first-degree murder, and the prosecutor assigned to the case took maternity leave leaving no-one to show up in court. After three missed court hearings by prosecutors, the judge was forced to drop a murder case because no-one other than the defense, a public defender, was showing up in court. This is a jaw-dropping example of a prosecutors office is a state of horrible...

    Straw hat in hand, Tyrean “Heru” Lewis jumped out of his pickup truck along busy Shackelford Road in North St. Louis County and walked into the treeline, where he had something special to show. On the other side, uniform rows of vegetables — lettuce, radishes and bok choy — sprouted on half an acre. The land is not on a remote country farm, but just 17 miles from the Delmar Loop in the heart of the metro. As Lewis, founder of Heru Urban Farming, checks the crop he gets excited about its progress, raising his voice over the sound of...

    Almost a year ago, on 28 June 2020, a mob of loud, screaming BLM protestors in St. Louis, Missouri, followed the agitators/leaders into private property through a locked gate. Reacting to the threats, Mark and Patricia McCloskey grabbed two firearms, an AR-15 type rifle, and an inoperable Bryco semi-automatic pistol. The McCloskeys seemed fully justified under Missouri law. The state Attorney General defended them in public. The Governor said he would pardon them if they were prosecuted.This did not deter radical St. Louis Circuit Attorney (prosecutor) Kim Gardner. She insisted on prosecuting the McCloskeys. Eventually, she was removed from the...

Twtter Link"Checking out my new AR!" Mark McCloskey tweeted along with two pictures: one with McCloskey at a gun store with the owner, and another with him and his wife, Patricia.

    Gun-toting attorney Mark McCloskey has shown off his new rifle just two days after pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges and agreeing to surrender the weapon he pointed unarmed Black Lives Matter protesters. ‘Checking out my new AR,’ reads the caption. McCloskey is seen in the photos wearing a curt smile and brandishing the weapon with a finger just above the trigger. One photo also includes his wife Patricia giving a thumbs up. The gun-toting St. Louis couple, both personal injury attorneys in their 60s, appeared in court Thursday where they admitted to a judge that their actions had put peaceful...

    She’s cute, white, cheerful and popular — a bad combination in politically fanatical America in 2021 Comedienne Ellie Kemper is in trouble! What for? Well, it’s a bit hard to understand. Let Cockburn go and take a couple of hours to figure it out.OK, Cockburn is back — and more confused than ever. Apparently, Kemper, 41, is in trouble because she won a local St Louis beauty pageant 22 years ago, when she was 19. Why is that bad? The pageant was the Veiled Prophet Ball, put on by the Veiled Prophet Organization of St Louis. OK — and why...

    The mayor of St. Louis says having more cops won't prevent crime, and she's used her first month in office to introduce controversial reforms including defunding the police. Tishaura Jones, who is the first black woman ever elected to serve as mayor of St. Louis, approved a $4million cut in the police budget as her city experienced the highest levels of violent crime in half a century last year. The 49-year-old Jones assumed office on April 20 after running on a platform that includes an end to St. Louis’ ‘arrest and incarcerate’ model of policing - even as her city...

    St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Garner, elected the city’s top prosecutor with the help of liberal billionaire George Soros, could lose her law license over charges of professional misconduct in her pursuit of Republican then-Governor Eric Greitens. The Missouri Supreme Court’s Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel found Gardner concealed evidence and lied to courts while handling Greitens case, and concluded: “probable cause exists to believe that Respondent (Gardner) is guilty of professional misconduct.” She now faces a disciplinary hearing that could end with her losing her license to practice law. In 2018 Greitens was accused of taking a nude photograph...

    City officials in St. Louis, Missouri, are moving forward with a plan to cut $4 million from the police budget and remove 98 vacant officer jobs. The local Board of Estimate and Apportionment voted 2-1 in favor of the spending plan, which pledges to remove $4 million from the $171 million police budget and reallocate that money to social services, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch. The plan, according to St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones, is intended to “address the root causes of crime and support the victims of crime as well as those who have been underserved and...

    I recently wrote about the mysterious killings of endangered white rhinos in South Africa’s Pilanesberg Park years ago. The killers turned out to be gangs of aggressive teen elephants who, raised without fathers or role models to “curb their youthful exuberance,” grew up to be troublemakers. The delinquents fell in line after park staff relocated adult male elephants to the park who “kicked butt” with the compassion of a father and established a new hierarchy. The violence and killings of white rhinos stopped. I compared the young elephants to young blacks in urban cities who were raised without fathers or...

The Des Peres Police Department said two groups of people got into an argument when one of them fired the shot. No one was injured. Officers from multiple agencies responded. A witness we talked to said he saw the gunman fire a shot from the second floor, then went down the escalator and kept shooting...
