The Brew: No Jail for Transgender Who Desecrated a Church and No Meghan at the Coronation
Meanwhile, Sen. Tim Scott takes a big step toward joining the Republican primary field and Joe Biden has a close call in Northern Ireland.
May we ask, “Can’t anybody keep highly sensitive documents secure?”
Biden Security Documents Found on a Belfast Street
A detailed briefing document laying out the security arrangements for Joe Biden’s trip to Northern Ireland was found lying around on a Belfast street, authorities confirm.
Guess they should have kept them in Joe’s garage, next to his slick Corvette. That keeps ‘em safe, we were told.
Biden spoke Wednesday at the University of Ulster. The threat level had already been raised to “severe” in advance of this week’s 25th anniversary commemoration of the Good Friday Agreement and Biden’s visit.
A member of the public, who would only identify himself as “Bill,” found the Police Service Northern Ireland document just out there in the open. Bill told BBC Radio Ulster:
I literally came out of my home and was driving up the street and I saw the document, strangely in the street where I live. I stopped and picked it up and there it was and the first thing I noticed was it was a PSNI document with sensitive on the top and there are five pages of it giving full details of the stay at the Grand Central Hotel of the President of America.
The “operation order” also contained the names and phone numbers of officers and where they’d be stationed during the visit. In the wrong hands, that could have proven deadly.
The Secret Service told Fox News in a statement the “movements of the President were not affected by these reports,” and they expressed full confidence in the security arrangements for the trip and in their “Irish and European partners.”
We continue praying for Biden’s safety on this trip.
By the way, according to the Telegraph, the Brits aren’t too pleased that Biden’s chosen to go to Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland while blowing off going to King Charles’ coronation next month. The official story is Biden is keeping with the tradition of U.S. presidents not going to coronations.
Well, the last time England had a coronation was 70 years nearly to the day. June 2, 1953, to be precise. Think President Eisenhower would have missed out on Queen Elizabeth’s coronation if he could have hopped on a jet?
Prince Harry Will Be Attending King Charles’ Coronation … Without Meghan
Ending months of worldwide stress and anxiety — oh, how many nails have we bitten off! — Buckingham Palace announced Wednesday that Prince Harry will be attending his father’s coronation next month. But he’s leaving wife Meghan Markle and the kids at home.
“Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on May 6th. The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”
May 6 happens to be Archie’s birthday.
Time to Rename the Justice Department: No Jail Time for Trans Who Terrorized and Desecrated a Church
Remember Mark Houck? The Justice Department wanted to give the pro-lifer 11 years hard time because he pushed away a pro-abortion activist who was verbally assaulting his child outside an abortion mill while father and son were praying. Thankfully, a jury quickly found Houck innocent.
So what do you think this same Justice Department gave a transgender terrorist who desecrated a Catholic church, destroyed a statue of Mary, resisted arrest, smashed a police car with a backpack full of spray cans and assaulted a church worker, spraying paint in her face?
11 years? 11 months? Not even 11 seconds. Nothing. Nada. Not a day in jail. Fox News reports on the sweetheart plea deal quietly given Maeve Note, 31. Three years probation.
Note went on this rampage at St. Louis Catholic Church in Bellevue, Washington, in protest of Roe v. Wade being overturned.
Trans Activist Murders Taxi Driver in Cold Blood
Meanwhile, in Portland, a taxi driver was murdered Easter morning by a trans extremist. Moses Jacob Lopez brutally stabbed Radio Cab driver Reese McDowell Lawhon. Simply got in the cab wearing a tiara and woman’s clothing and plunged a knife into Lawhon’s neck. Radio Cab marketing director Darin Campbell said an in-cab camera caught the attack. “Vicious, senseless and brutal,” Campbell said. “There was no conversation. No altercation. Nothing.”
Making the case even more outrageous: Just six days earlier Lopez had been arrested and charged with threatening two shoppers at BiMart with a knife … and was quickly sprung on bail. Andy Ngo has the details at Post Millennial.
That attack would come two days after the “Trans Day of Vengeance.”
Sen. Tim Scott Forms Presidential Exploratory Committee
Looks like the genial gentleman from South Carolina, Sen. Tim Scott, is going to run for president. Scott announced Wednesday morning that he’s launched a presidential exploratory committee, saying America is “starving for hope.”
“All too often when they [Democrats] get called out for their failures, they weaponize race to divide us, to hold onto their power,” he said in the video. “When I fought back against their liberal agenda, they called me a prop. A token. Because I disrupt their narrative. I threaten their control. They know the truth of my life disproves their lies.”
The first Republican Primary Debate will take place this August in Milwaukee and be broadcast on Fox News, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced Wednesday. It’ll also stream on Rumble, which is a partnering with RNC and Scott Walker’s Young America’s Foundation for the debate.
