10 people die in Colorado supermarket.

Published

A shooting at a Colorado supermarket on Monday killed 10 people, including a police officer, and a suspect was arrested, officials said.

Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold announced the death toll in a press release Monday night, fighting back the tears.

The suspect was being treated, and authorities said there were no further threats to the community. The officers were escorting a man in a bloody shirt as he spilt his legs out of the store, but the authorities were not suspicious.

The deceased officer Eric Tally, 51, has been with Boulder Police since 2010, according to Herold Gel.

The families of the victims are still being identified, and their names have not been released, said Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty

Dougherty said: “This is a tragedy lebolideri County and local, state and federal officials need the cooperation and support,”

Yamaguchi police said they were still investigating and did not have any details about the shooting at King King’s store in Boulder, 25 miles northwest of Denver.

Dean Schiller told the Associated Press that he had just left the supermarket when he heard gunshots and saw three people in front of him, two in the parking lot and one near the door. “He could not tell that they were breathing,” he said.

The video posted on YouTube shows one on the floor of the store and two others on the floor. Two bullets appear at the beginning of the video.

Police vehicles and officers, including SWAT teams, gathered outside the store and landed at least three helicopters on the roof. Some windows in front of the store were smashed.

At one point, officials said through a loudspeaker that the building was surrounded and that we had to surrender.

Sarah Monshow told the Denver Post that she and Leonardo Edwards were two shots fired shortly after buying strawberries. She told Leah to come down, and then she said, “We just ran.”

After they left, she said she saw someone in the parking lot. Edwards said police rushed into the parking lot and got up next to his body.

He said he knew we could do nothing for him. We had to go.

When James Bentz heard what he thought was the wrong fire, he told the Post that he was in the meat room, followed by a series of pops.

“So I was leading a riot,” he said.

Bents said he jumped out of a truck to escape and was helping young people get out of it.

One person was taken to the Fulhill Hospital in Boulder, said Rich Ean, a spokesman for Boulder Community Health, who runs the hospital.

Police told people to evacuate at the scene of an “armed and dangerous person” report 3 miles (5 km) from the grocery store and said in a press release that the exchange of fire had nothing to do with it.

The FBI requested an investigation.

White House press secretary Jane Psaki said he had been briefed on the shooting by President Joe Biden yesterday.

In a statement, King Super Network said: “Ideas, prayers and support for our partners, clients and first responders who have responded boldly to this tragedy. We will cooperate with the local police in the investigation and the store will be remain closed.

One block from the supermarket was Kevin Dali, owner of a sunny restaurant and a pizzeria restaurant, who said he was in the store when he saw police cars coming and running. He said he had warmed many people, and others had boarded a bus carrying Boulder police.

Mitt Romney Booed Onstage at G.O.P. Convention in Utah

Published

on

Earlier this month, Mitt Romney got onstage for his speech and got booed by his own people at a Republican convention in Utah. As he spoke on the microphone, some attendees in the crowd hurled insults such as “communist” and “traitor” to the dismay of the senator. This is not too surprising since the Romney was a staunch critic of Donald Trump even before he became the 45th president of the United States. 

Ever since Trump became a front-runner for the upcoming 2016 presidential elections, Mitt Romney has expressed his concern and has never stopped criticizing the future president. He has tried to bring attention to Trump’s non-disclosure of his taxes and made verbal attacks on every fiber of Donald Trump’s being. From his personal life to his abilities as a businessman and a politician, Romney went on with the onslaught, even urging his partymates to vote a candidate with the most chances of beating Trump.

All of Romney’s efforts to put the brakes on Trump’s surging bandwagon proved to be futile. He lambasted Donald Trump every chance he got on a microphone and even tried to support a much less popular Ted Cruz. Sometimes Trump would bite back with scathing remarks, stating that Mitt Romney is “one of the dumbest and worst candidates in the history of Republican politics.” Mitt Romney was also the only Republican who voted in favor of Donald Trump’s impeachment when he was already the head of state, which is actually the main reason for the disrespectful reception in Utah. 

Being the long-time GOP member that he is though, Mitt Romney didn’t fold amidst the insults and boos at the Utah convention. He retorted back on the mic saying “Oh yeah, you can boo all you like, but I’ve been a Republican all my life. My dad was a governor of Michigan, my dad worked for Republican candidates that he believed in. I worked for Republicans across the country, and if you don’t recall, I was the Republican nominee for President in 2012.”

Fair enough, Mitt Romney did challenge for the presidential seat and was the standard bearer of the Grand Old Party. Unfortunately, Barrack Obama defeated him by a convincing margin of almost 5 million votes. 

Mitt Romney may have done some little good things for the country, especially in Utah where he “saved” the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics back in 2012. However, it is clear that a vast majority of Americans are not a fan of the man today as he has created enemies from opposing groups. It is pretty obvious by now that the ageing senator has become an irrelevant figure even in his own circle.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce Call for End of $300 Weekly Unemployment Benefits

Published

The continuing pandemic has dealt a great blow to the economy of the United States and we are only starting to slowly recover from this adversity. Unemployment is at an all-time high, with almost 10 million jobless people struggling to put anything on the dinner table. However, due to the efforts of various sectors and industries, more and more innovative ideas are being utilized to bring back life as we know it (or at least a glimpse of it). 

Just last weekend, a boxing match between two superstars from Mexico and the UK, took place at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. It was attended by a record 73,000 fans, a testament to the resilience of the American people. The massive attendance also meant that a lot of jobs are back and a whole lot more are being created. 

Well, that is if the people are willing to get off the couches that have been turning them into useless sloths for the past year or so. Motivation is hard to come by especially if the government is providing you monetary allowance to stay at home.

That is why the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is calling for the Biden administration to put an end to the $300 weekly unemployment benefits that the citizens are receiving while doing nothing at all. 

In an official statement by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice-President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley, he said “the disappointing jobs report makes it clear that paying people not to work is dampening what should be a stronger jobs market. We need a comprehensive approach to dealing with our workforce issues and the very real threat unfilled positions pose to our economic recovery from the pandemic.”

“One step policymakers should take now is ending the $300 weekly supplemental unemployment benefit.  Based on the Chamber’s analysis, the $300 benefit results in approximately one in four recipients taking home more in unemployment than they earned working” Bradley said.

Many experts believe that this supplement has become detrimental to the workforce because a lot of them are opting not to return to their jobs to enjoy the weekly government support. The Republicans are aware of this as well, and that is why South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster has ordered the Department of Employment and Workforce to pull out of the federal government’s pandemic programs next month.

In his press release, McMaster has this to say about the matter:

“What was intended to be a short-term financial assistance for the vulnerable and displaced during the height of the pandemic has turned into a dangerous federal entitlement, incentivizing and paying workers to stay at home rather than encouraging them to return to the workplace.”

The Biden Administration Is Pushing for Reparations for Border Crossers

Published

on

As if the uncontrollable torrent of immigrants that are illegally crossing American borders isn’t enough, president Joe Biden is now pushing to provide reparations for some of the past violators. 

The current administration has already started negotiating with the American Civil Liberties Union to arrange for the reparations and amnesty of about a thousand illegal immigrant parents who were deported after being separated from their children. The said illegal aliens were netted as a part of previous president Donald Trump’s Zero Tolerance operations.

In an interview with NBC, ACLU’s lawyer Lee Gelernt stated that “The ACLU is in settlement negotiations with the Biden administration to provide full relief to the thousands of separated families, not just reunification in the U.S. but permanent status, compensation and social services.”

A spokesperson from the Department of Homeland Security further explained “This is only the beginning, and the government cannot do this work alone. We are committed to working with the private sector and with the NGOs, attorneys, and advocates who have done tremendous work in support of these families.”

The wave of undocumented illegal aliens have already been a huge problem for authorities to deal with and the idea that they could get, not only amnesty, but also reparations is a very dangerous matter for the United States. This is actually akin to rewarding someone for trespassing your own home and this will just encourage more of them to do the same.

The plan to give out reparations has been a part of Joe Biden’s campaign, although at first, it was more focused on descendants of past slaves. Now he wishes to do the same favors for those who crossed into American soil illegally during Trump’s time in the White House. 

We feel for those people who wanted to enter the promised land, but we also wish that they would do it the proper way just like the vast majority of hardworking foreigners who came to the United States, fully documented. It would be unfair for the immigrant cooks, farmers, doctors and nurses who got here using the special abilities that they possess. They put in a lot of effort and went through the correct processes before working and migrating to the U.S.

America allows skilled people, even foreigners to contribute to society as long as it is done legally. Undocumented aliens could pose a lot of risks to the nation because authorities have no record of who is entering our territories. With this kind of arrangement, we have no way of knowing if there are criminals and other kinds of bad people just blending in within our community, ready to disrupt the peace anytime.
