Welcome to our special pouring of The Brew. We’re taking a quick look at some of the stories that happened as we were celebrating the end of 2022 and the arrival of Baby New Year.

Univ. of Idaho Murders: They Think They’ve Got Their Man

Early Friday morning, police arrested 28-year-old Brian Christopher Kohberger for the vicious stabbing murder of those four University of Idaho students in November. Kohberger was captured at his parents’ home in Albrightsville, Pennsylvania. Prosecutors say they were led to Kohberger through DNA genealogical evidence found at the scene. They also tracked a white Hyundai Elantra leaving the scene to the suspect.  

Kohberger was working on his PhD in criminal justice/criminology at Washington State University, living in Pullman, Washington, only 15 minutes from the murder scene.

Those who knew him in high school give some hint of a motive. While described as “very intelligent,” fellow students tell Fox News he was shy, a bit odd, had difficulty with social cues and was particularly awkward toward girls. He would not only be rebuffed by females, but bullied and mocked.

It is unclear at this point whether Kohberger knew the victims. However, experts suggest that given the layout of the home where the victims were murdered, the crime would have taken “diligent” planning. Indeed, sources close to the investigation revealed Sunday that Kohberger had been stalking the victims for four weeks. 

According to a news release from Washington State University, Kohberger completed his first semester in the PhD program for criminal justice in December. This raises the question: Did he really return to school after slaughtering four people as casually as if he had gone to Ft. Lauderdale for spring break?

He’d gotten his masters at DeSales Univ. CNN reports that in a since-removed Reddit post, a Brian Kohberger asked to be part of a research project “to understand how emotional and psychological traits influence decision-making when committing a crime.”

All I can say is, “Thank God they caught him before he could do more lab work.”

Texas Father Loses Battle to Save 10-Year-Old Son From Being Transitioned

The Texas Supreme Court rejected Jeff Younger’s last ditch effort to prevent his 10-year-old son James from being transitioned. Younger’s ex-wife — frighteningly, a pediatrician — has been grooming the boy since age two to be a girl. Younger’s been fighting her tooth and nail. The ex has since fled to California, where effective yesterday, a new law offers “sanctuary” for people bringing children for medical transgender treatments. Even if Texas had ruled in Younger’s favor to save the child from chemical castration, California would, under its new law, ignore the ruling.

Younger has said he will fight the constitutionality of the new California law in Federal court.

Please pray for James and that his father’s efforts will prove successful before permanent damage as done.

Scotland Police Change “Pedophiles” to “Minor-Attracted People.”

Outrage in Scotland over a year-end police report that describes pedophiles as “minor-attracted people.” Chief Constable Iain Livingstone reported that police worked on a project that’s main agenda is to “to develop understanding and approach to avoid the victimisation of children by engaging Minor-Attracted People (MAPs) and providing them with the necessary support, treatment and guidance to help prevent criminal activities.” 

Independent social worker consultant Maggie Mellon told the Scottish Daily Press, the term “MAP” leads to the “danger of normalizing and therefore perhaps decriminalising a very serious offense.”

That does seem to be the goal, as Jordan Peterson noted.

The Scottish police responded in a statement that they were merely following the terminology of the European Union.

Said a police spokesman: “Police Scotland does not use the term Minor-Attracted Person. The reference in the Chief Constable’s Assessment of Policing Performance 2021/22 was in the context of Police Scotland’s engagement with the Horizon Project EU consortium to tackle Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation.

Trump and Capitol Hill

The January 6 committee quietly dropped its subpoena of Donald Trump.

House Democrats loudly dropped Trump’s tax returns. All they prove is that Trump is the only person to go to Washington and see his wealth drop. Trump’s the only American who didn’t benefit from the Trump Economy … yet he’s the one having his businesses and finances and underwear drawers inspected. Another example of our Bananas Republic.

Nancy Pelosi in one of her final acts as Speaker jacked up the maximum salary for Capitol Hill staffers to over $220K.

Meanwhile, texts and emails uncovered by the House GOP suggest Pelosi staffers didn’t just reject requests for more security from Capitol Hill police and President Trump, but actually decreased security at the Capitol for January 6. Now, why do you think they would do that?

TIME Magazine: Exercise is Racist

You know that New Year’s Resolution to hit the gym and get in shape? Good news. You now have an excuse to break your resolution. Exercise is racist. At least that’s the claim of an associate professor of history at New York’s The New School named Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, interviewed by TIME magazine.

In her book Fit Nation: The Gains and Pains of America’s Exercise Obsession, Petrzela dates the rise of exercise to the 1920’s and 30’s.

They said we should get rid of corsets, corsets are an assault on women’s form, and that women should be lifting weights and gaining strength. At first, you feel like this is so progressive.

Then you keep reading, and they’re saying white women should start building up their strength because we need more white babies. They’re writing during an incredible amount of immigration, soon after enslaved people have been emancipated.

This is totally part of a white supremacy project.

Incidentally, the world’s first gyms and weightlifting machines were in the 19th century. Forms of exercise can be traced back as early as 3300 B.C.

Then there’s Thomas Jefferson, who advised in 1785:

Encourage all your virtuous dispositions, and exercise them whenever an opportunity arises, being assured that they will gain strength by exercise as a limb of the body does, and that exercise will make them habitual. Give about two of them [hours] every day to exercise; for health must not be sacrificed to learning. A strong body makes the mind strong.

Hey, TIME magazine! Are you saying that strong minds are a white thing?
