"When the people seek a change in the direction of government, and through voting successive changes in administrations, there is no change in the direction, then you know there is a conspiracy." -- Thomas Jefferson

Nearly 30 minutes before he fired, law enforcement officials spotted and reported the suspected shooter who tried to assassinate former President Donald Trump and even took a photograph of him, according to new sources.

WPXI-TV reported the revelation on Monday.

Multiple sources said Thomas Matthew Crooks had been spotted on the roof near the rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, at about 5:45 p.m. by one of the members of the Emergency Services Unit of Beaver County.

That person called in the report of a suspicious person and also took a photo of the man who was later confirmed to be Crooks, according to the report.

The Heritage Foundation's government watchdog Oversight Project revealed via a Blaze News exclusive in May how the dutiful enactment of Biden's Executive Order 14019 could play out as "election interference."

The EO takes for granted that minorities, particularly black people, are disproportionately met today with "significant obstacles" to voting, especially by "voter identification laws and limited opportunities to vote by mail."

To rectify this supposed problem affecting groups that disproportionately vote Democrat, Biden suggested it is critical that his administration enmesh itself more fully in the election process and compelled federal agencies to "consider ways to expand citizens' opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process."

Mike Howell, executive director of the Oversight Project, previously pointed out to Blaze News how Demos, a leftist think tank whose 2020 recommendations to the Biden administration ostensibly inspired EO 14019, boasted that the so-called "BidenBucks" scheme could bring in as many as 3 million new voter registrations per year.

The Supreme Court recently ruled that former President Donald Trump does have some measure of presidential immunity for actions taken in his official capacity as president. This ruling has roiled the ongoing criminal cases against Trump, as prosecutors scramble to plan their next moves and Trump's defense team plans a series of countermoves. 
 

Blaze News spoke with a number of legal experts, including both prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys, as well as attorneys for constitutional legal organizations to get a sense for how these developments will impact both the pace and the substance of Trump's criminal trials.

Trump currently faces four separate prosecutions, all of which at least potentially are impacted by the Supreme Court's ruling.

Trump Reveals Key Pillars Of "Trumponomics": Low Taxes, Sky High Tariffs, Powell Not Fired, Treasury Secretary Dimon And Much More

by Tyler Durden

Tuesday, Jul 16, 2024 - 09:40 PM

Before the failed assassination attempt, before the catastrophic (for Biden) first presidential debate, Donald Trump gave Bloomberg an extensive interview in which he laid out the core tenets of Trumponomics 2.0 that will define his next presidency. Here are the key highlights:

According to the interview, if Trump wins, he will...

  • enforce huge bilateral sanctions even though he claims “I don’t love sanctions,” he says. He keeps circling back to William McKinley, who he says raised enough revenue through tariffs during his turn-of-the-20th-century presidency to avoid instituting a federal income tax yet never got the appropriate credit.
  • allow Jerome Powell to serve out his term as chair of the Federal Reserve, which runs through May 2026
  • will lower the corporate tax rate to as low as 15%
  • no longer plans to ban TikTok.
  • considers Jamie Dimon to serve as secretary of the Department of the Treasury
  • ambivalent (if not outright hostile) to the idea of protecting Taiwan from Chinese aggression and to US efforts to punish Putin for invading Ukraine.

While the broad strokes of Trumponomics might not be different from what they were during his first term, what’s new is the speed and efficiency with which he intends to enact them. He believes he understands the levers of power much more deeply now, including the importance of selecting the right people for the right jobs. “We had great people, but I had some people that I would not have chosen for a second time,” he says. “Now, I know everybody. Now, I am truly experienced.”

A new report indicates that three snipers were stationed inside the very building the attempted assassin used to fire shots off at former President Donald Trump during a campaign rally in western Pennsylvania on Saturday.

The attempted assassin, Thomas Matthew Crooks, 20, managed to pierce Trump’s right ear, narrowly missing his head, before Secret Service killed the shooter. Tragically, one Trump supporter, a 50-year-old father of two named Corey Comparatore, was killed. Two other rally attendees were critically injured.

As part of the security precautions for the Trump rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, three “counter-snipers” from Beaver County were stationed inside the building “looking out windows toward the Trump rally,” a CBS report said.

A local outlet called BeaverCountain.com, citing law enforcement sources, said local law enforcement from three counties were tasked with securing the areas surrounding the Secret Service perimeter. Officials said they were short staffed and not prepared to handle such a big undertaking, and notably, no one was stationed on the roof of the building. 

Webmaster addition: Not buying this one. Why not put the snipers who were inside the building on the roof. They would have had a much better field of fire. And why have snipers positioned in a way that they would shoot INTO the crowd?!?

Microsoft laid off a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) team this year, with a team leader sending an email saying the initiatives were no longer needed.

The email, sent earlier this month and obtained by Business Insider, is from an individual whose name has not been released. It is unclear how many team employees were laid off.

“True systems-change work associated with DEI programs everywhere are no longer business critical or smart as they were in 2020,” said the email, which was sent to thousands of employees, according to BI.

The email reportedly said the DEI team was eliminated due to “changing business needs” as of July 1.

Army Ranger veteran Sean Parnell shared a photo on Tuesday showing just how close Donald Trump’s would-be assassin was able to get to the former president at a Butler, Pennsylvania, campaign rally on Saturday.

The shooter was able to attain an elevated position on a roof less than 150 yards from where Trump was speaking and fired on the rally. In addition to shooting the former president’s right ear, he shot and killed firefighter Corey Comperatore and injured two others.

“Everyone needs to see this photo to appreciate the tactical negligence that occurred during the assassination attempt on DJT,” Parnell, who spoke at the rally ahead of Trump, posted along with a photo from Saturday’s event. “This photo was taken just minutes before the first shots were fired. DJT is oriented towards the shooter at this point.”

The Democratic coup against President Joe Biden is back on.

Biden got a brief break from the rebellion in the wake of the assassination attempt on Donald Trump

But, a move by the Democratic Party to secure an early formal nomination of Biden as the candidate - to meet an Ohio ballot requirement -  has resparked the plot against the president. 

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who is the party's Senate candidate in California, warned during a private meeting with donors on Saturday that the party would suffer overwhelming losses if Biden remained the nominee.

Heart-wrenching new details about JFK Jr's burial at sea have been revealed for the very first time - 25 years after the former President's son was laid to rest alongside his wife Carolyn during the incredibly secretive ceremony. 

In a new book JFK Jr: An Intimate Oral Biography, by RoseMarie Terenzio and Liz McNeil, the two Navy chaplains who presided over the burial speak out about the event - which was, at the time, shrouded in mystery and kept largely hidden from the public. 

Chaplain Barry C Black discloses that he personally carried the urns containing the ashes of both John and his wife Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. A Roman Catholic priest carried Carolyn's sister Lauren's remains after all three perished in a tragic plane crash off the coast of Martha's Vineyard on July 16, 1999.

NATO's military infrastructure is advancing into the Asia-Pacific region to undermine the existing architecture centered around ASEAN, stated Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

He highlighted the statements of NATO leaders about the alliance's leading role in the Asia-Pacific region and its spreading dominance there.

"NATO's military infrastructure is advancing into the Pacific region with an obvious goal: to undermine the ASEAN-centric architecture, which has been built over many decades based on principles of equality, mutual interest, and consensus," Lavrov said at a UN Security Council meeting.

Volodymyr Zelensky and his backers in the Biden administration would do whatever it takes to destroy those advocating a peaceful settlement in Ukraine, the Other Ukraine movement's Council Chair Viktor Medvedchuk warned Trump.

Attacks on politicians advocating negotiations and peace in Ukraine have become a worrisome trend, Viktor Medvedchuk, a Ukrainian opposition politician and chairman of the council of the Other Ukraine movement, wrote in an open letter to Donald Trump, the US Republican frontrunner.

"The terrorist [shooter of Trump], whoever he is, was clearly not a lone wolf," Medvedchuk noted. "On the campaign trail, you [Trump] have repeatedly stated that you will be able to bring peace to the long-suffering Ukrainian land. But this peace means the loss of power by the [Volodymyr] Zelensky [neo-] Nazi regime and its American handlers in the Biden administration."

The Russian military gets ready to welcome NATO aircraft in Ukraine. Western F-16 fighters may soon enter the battles. According to the recent promises by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, the aircraft are on their way to Ukraine and they may enter service with the Ukrainian Air Forces this summer.

The deployment of F-16 in Ukraine is a great risk for the NATO military. Despite the claims in Kyiv and in the West, several aircraft have no chance to become a game changer in the war. As well as HIMARS MLRS, Abrams, Leopard tanks and other Western weapons, F-16 will become another target for Russian forces.

Over the years of fighting, the Russian military has gained extensive experience in handling NATO weapons. Today, the Russian Ministry of Defense chose the same tactics to motivate Russian servicemen.

On July 16, the Russian company FORES announced that it will pay 15 million rubles for the first F-15 or F-16 fighter jet shot down in the zone of the Special Military Operation in Ukraine.

Webmaster addition: It takes 18 to 24 months to properly train an F-16 pilot. That means those F-16s flown by Ukrainians will be little more than practice targets for the Russians ... or the F-16 pilots will not be Ukrainians!

Debate still surrounds Hutton's conclusion that Kelly committed suicide. The inquiry found that Kelly died after cutting an artery, had taken an overdose of painkillers and had heart disease which left his arteries "significantly narrowed". Thus, said experts, less blood loss may have killed the scientist than that needed to kill a healthy man.

Among those who have called for an inquest or have doubts it was a suicide are former Tory leader Michael Howard, and Liberal Democrat minister Norman Baker, who wrote a book saying Kelly was most likely murdered.

A group of doctors say Hutton's findings should be discarded and a new inquest held. Dr Stephen Frost said: "We have lots of evidence … No coroner in the land would reach a verdict of suicide as Lord Hutton did."

Dozens of residents of Aabasan al-Kabira, located on the southeastern outskirts of Khan Younis in Gaza, were massacred by heavy bombs, which were dropped on civilians by Israeli warplanes. This is just one of thousands of similar massacres in recent months, through which Israeli occupation forces are turning Gaza into a lifeless region. 

"There was no trace of my child," "blood was the only thing you could hear, see and smell," and "The street was a pool of blood" are testimonies The Guardian reported from survivors of one of four harrowing massacres that occurred at or near schools housing forcibly displaced families over the course of four days last week.

Prompted by Saturday's stunning assassination attempt at a rally in Pennsylvania that nearly killed Trump while taking the life of a spectator and critically injuring two more, Biden's six-minute speech centered on a call for Americans to "lower the temperature in our politics." Here's a sampling: 

“We cannot, we must not, go down this road in America. There is no place in America for this kind of violence, for any violence, ever. Period. No exceptions. We can’t allow this violence to be normalized...Politics must never be a battlefield or, God forbid, a killing field.”

Then, like clockwork, came the inevitable major-league Biden malfunction. Instead of insisting that Americans settle their differences at the ballot box, Biden said political differences should be settled at the "battle box." He then paused in what seemed like recognition of his error, only to reiterate the idea and again seem to say "battle box."

The last month has been disastrous for President Joe Biden and Democrats' hopes of maintaining the White House in 2024.

As of Monday night, that month just got a whole lot worse.

Tara Reade, who accused President Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her when the president was still a senator, has returned to the U.S. and is moving to pursue criminal charges against the president for his alleged crimes against her.

Reade announced as much in a video posted to her X account on Monday.

Yes, I am back in America, and yes, I want justice for what Joe Biden did to me in 1993 and the cover up. https://t.co/XtaiWBTcRL

U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez was convicted of all charges Tuesday in a sweeping corruption trial in which he was accused of accepting bribes of gold and cash from three New Jersey businessmen and acting as an agent for the Egyptian government.

A jury in Manhattan deliberated for parts of three days before finding the Democrat guilty of 16 crimes, including bribery, extortion, honest services fraud, obstruction of justice and conspiracy.

Prosecutor said he abused the power of his office to protect allies from criminal investigations and enrich associates, including his wife, through acts that included meeting with Egyptian intelligence officials and softening his position toward that country as he speeded its access to millions of dollars in U.S. military aid.

It was a grey, drizzly Monday on March 30, 1981, when President Reagan emerged from the Washington Hilton hotel, heading back to his presidential limousine parked a few yards away.

His inauguration had been only a few weeks before and he'd just finished speaking at a lunch of US labor union leaders.

Along with the rest of the White House press corps I was about 20 feet away, roped off from the President. Suddenly, just as one of our number shouted a question for him, shots rang out.

In a split second, a burly Secret Service agent brusquely bundled Reagan into the limo, another pushed his colleague hard to ensure both he and the President were flat on the back seat.

The limo was surrounded by agents, guns drawn, the would-be assassin wrestled to the ground by the public as well as law enforcement. Reagan's vehicle sped off.

Donald Trump dissenters have shared their wild conspiracy theories about the assassination attempt on the former president.

The 78-year-old was nearly killed by gunman Thomas Crooks on Saturday afternoon as he was speaking at a campaign rally near Butler, Pennsylvania.

The 20-year-old registered Republican was able to slip onto a rooftop location 150 yards from the stage and began firing an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle, purchased by his father, officials said.

A bullet grazed Trump's ear before the gunman was taken out by a Secret Service sniper. Corey Comperatore, 50, was killed trying to protect his family while David Dutch, 57, and James Copenhaver, 74, were wounded in the shooting. 

But some people have claimed the assassination attempt was a 'false-flag' and staged in a set of warped theories.
