#UPDATE2
.@fox5dc has been asking @MCPS to confirm coach involvement in last Friday’s Gaithersburg/Northwest HS football game fight. Now my colleague @Mia_FOX5DC’s discovered an assault charge was filed yesterday. *Appears Gburg’s AD filed against NW’s head football coach.
Asking again & asking why @MCPS won’t confirm or answer Q’s around the assault charge, I’m told: “These are personnel investigations and at this moment I do not have all the relevant facts. We will comment with what can be said at an appropriate time.”
@fox5dc
Quickly spoke with @1HawkIsland, who confirmed he heard an assault charge was filed against him. Asked both he & @NorthwestJags for a response.

MD Case Search info says there’s a prelim hearing scheduled for November 7th. Told court doc’s won’t be available until then.

Just got off the phone with my brother, The Canadian Pacific Railroad has A Deadline coming up of September, 16Th …

What does this mean?
If the Railroad does not give the employees what they want by the 16Th, there could be A Stoppage of work completely across the board.
I warned about this 2 years ago, last year & this year.
Meaning, ALL railroads would come to A halt—All different
Supplies, food, water & all other resources don’t get delivered/Transported …
Workers are being asked to work 12-13-16 + hour days & being treated very poorly.
Hunter Harrison was the CEO up until 2017, he passed away in 2017. His Predecessor at the time took over the CEO position.

There’s corruption within every layer of life & someone at some point was trying to take my brother out but it was stopped ..

JUST IN: The U.S. has expressed concern to India that it was being used to export fuel made from Russian crude, through high-seas transfers to hide its origin, to #New York in violation of U.S. sanctions. #India Image

The U.S. Treasury Department told India that an Indian ship picked up oil from a Russian tanker on the high seas and brought it to a port in Gujarat, where it was refined and shipped on.

#NEW Gordon Brown has warned in the @guardian that Boris Johnson is planning to "legitimise straightforward bribery" by "filling" the House of Lords "with his cronies".

The ex-PM has seen a leaked document from CT Group - run by key Johnson adviser Lynton Crosby... Thread 👇 Photo: OECD/Andrew Wheeler Visit of Gordon Brown, Chair of t
According to Brown, the draft plan would see "39 to 50 new Tory peers" added to the Lords.

It "includes an extraordinary requirement that each new peer sign away their right to make their own judgment on legislation that comes before them".
The leaked paper suggests that a "useful cover from any media backlash" would be to claim that the aim is to redress the north-south balance in the Lords - where the South East is overrepresented.

#NEW
Philadelphia is the straw purchase AND ghost gun capital of the East Coast. We have shootings every day & more gun homicides than any other big city this year and last. Now we've had two cops shot at THE concert of the year.
🧵
#GunViolence
#Philly #Shooter
#July4thPhilly
The GOP will claim that this cop shooting in #Philly is about "Democratic lawlessness," but it's actually and only about the proliferation of guns and the refusal by any Republican and some Democrats to do anything at all to control this rampant #GunViolence.
🧵2/
The good news is that no one died in this shooting at the fireworks in #Philly, that it wasn't a mass shooting event like #HighlandPark. But every child at this family event who was told by police to run will be traumatized in a city already beset by too much #GunViolence.

#NEW: Omicron's newest subvariants are already here and spreading fast, with their ability to bypass antibodies from both vaccines and prior infection, says new data from BC + experts.

What it means for our healthcare system this summer:
#bcpoli capitaldaily.ca/news/summer-wa…
“We are all incredibly worried that there will be more morbidity and mortality," said ER physician Dr. Jeff Unger.

Last week, Saanich Peninsula Hospital asked Island Health to shut down the ER overnight, to redirect staff to their busiest hours.

Island Health said no.
With public health measures all but gone & waning immunity from 3rd doses, BA.4 and BA.5 are expected soon become dominant in BC.

A new study shows that the more times you get reinfected with COVID-19, the higher your risk of death, hospitalization, and long COVID.

1) Useful #new article by @NavyLookout on the state of play with the @RFAHeadquarters, going through issues such as crewing difficulties, @RFAFortVictoria & the lack of the Fleet Solid Support replacement, the mothballing of the Wave Class & consequent strain on the Tide Class.
2) There does, however, seem to be a rather concerning issue highlighted in the passage on the Bay Class amphibious landing ships, relating to the date at which the conversion work to @RFALymeBay for her to operate at the heart of Littoral Response Group (South) will be completed
3) Littoral Response Group (South), centred on what is now known to be @RFALymeBay & @40commando, to be based at Duqm, Oman, is *the* big ticket, permanently deployed naval presence in Britain's Indo-Pacific tilt & is supposed to deploy in 2023 according to the Integrated Review.

#BREAKING: Loving County Judge Skeet Jones was arrested earlier today by the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association.

He and three others are accused of picking up loose cattle and selling them.

Special rangers have been on this case for more than a year.
#NEW: More info from the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association into the arrest of Loving Co Judge Skeet Jones.
This isn’t my first time reporting on Judge Jones.

In 2014, I did a story about how he was helping CDL drivers.

He was taking speeding tickets and turning them into illegal parking tickets. The driver would pay a higher fine and keep a clean driving record. You can’t do that.

The report says, the vice president of Swadley's then told the agent that, "no permits had been applied for... and that they didn't submit plans on this restaurant or any of the other restaurants recently opened at state parks owned by the state of Oklahoma."

So some interesting things have surfaced in the last few weeks that I want to share. Be patient with me, I’m slow & get interrupted a lot. But, I think it’s worth it to share this information before the mid-term elections.

😃 Please don’t forget to vote in November…💙
This article from 04/06/2022 has been weighing on my mind…it’s regarding the #RockbridgeNetwork, defined as a coalition.

What is a “political coalition” in the US?
Not much. It’s basically a verbal, non-regulated agreement to finance an agreed upon political agenda.
While #RockbridgeNetwork is being considered a “new GOP coalition”, it isn’t, think #CambridgeAnalytica. Plus, it is not the only “new GOP coalition” popping up before mid-term elections. #ChestnutStreetCouncil has been started by Matt Schlapp, think #KochNetwork

The US Government has imposed sanctions on senior members of what it describes as the 'Notorious Kinahan Organized Crime Group'

home.treasury.gov/news/press-rel…
A major, major step by Gardaí and law enforcement in the US and UK against the Kinahan group.

The US sanctions mean American institutions can't work with the Kinahans or associated businesses.

Property and credit lines blocked, cards frozen, can't fly with American carriers.
“Criminal groups like the KOCG prey on the most vulnerable in society and bring drug-related crime and violence, including murder, to the countries in which they operate."

Brian E Nelson, US under-secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence.
