11 pro-life activists have been indicted by Biden's DOJ for protesting outside an abortion clinic in Tennessee.

Meet the Christian memaws and papaws charged as "co-conspirators" now facing up to 11 years in federal prison for a peaceful "blockade" demonstration 🧵 Image
FBI agents with "guns drawn" reportedly raided the home of 73-year-old Chester Eugene Gallagher after the pro-life leader promoted a series of anti-abortion events last year on social media in the Nashville area and advertised an activist blockade of an abortion clinic. Image
Pro-life activist Heather Idoni, the 58-year-old owner of Beloved Books bookstore turned-Ukraine relief center, was charged by the DOJ with a civil rights conspiracy and a Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE Act) offense for "blockading" an abortion facility. ImageImageImageImage
The pro-life advocate's passport was confiscated by federal authorities and a federal judge later denied Idoni's request to travel on a humanitarian mission trip to help refugees in Ukraine while supporting her Ukrainian adopted son living in the war-torn country. ImageImage
61-year-old evangelist and pro-life missionary Calvin John Zastrow (now being prosecuted by the DOJ) was once arrested for reading the Bible and preaching on a public sidewalk across the street from an abortion clinic. ImageImageImage
Biden's DOJ is targeting this pro-life street preacher who advocates for group prayer and peaceful sit-in protests.

Pro-lifers sitting in front of abortion clinics are praying for God's intervention, which the DOJ calls "using physical obstruction to intimidate and interfere."
The preacher's daughter Eva Darlene Zastrow is also named in the federal indictment for demonstrating outside an abortion facility. Here she explains what these pro-life protests are like:

"I'm here because I care about you and your baby," she told a mother seeking an abortion.
50-year-old Dr. Coleman Boyd, a pro-life physician indicted by the DOJ for coordinating a peaceful protest at an abortion clinic, frequents facilities to read scripture and dissuade abortion seekers.

"That baby is a gift from God."
"This is your son or daughter."
"Let us adopt." ImageImageImage
55-year-old Paul Vaughn of Personhood Tennessee said the scene of the pro-life protest (which the federal charges stem from) was "like church service" with protestors "singing hymns, reading scripture, praying." Image
56-year-old cancer survivor Dennis Earl Green, the director of Life and Liberty Ministries, is accused of engaging in "a conspiracy" to prevent a clinic from aborting babies by being part of a peaceful protest that blocked access to a Tennessee abortion facility. ImageImage
Biden's DOJ is coming after 87-year-old Eva Edl, a pro-life icon arrested 40+ times for blockading abortion clinics and a survivor of a communist concentration camp. ImageImage
Instead of charging the far-left terrorists who have firebombed numerous pregnancy centers, Biden's DOJ is targeting this pro-life grandmother and bookstore owner for peacefully protesting at an abortion clinic. ImageImage

🚨 41-year-old suspected killer Shannon Brandt, who admitted to hitting 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson with his car over the teen's conservative views, was RELEASED yesterday on $50k bond. Brandt has been charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident.
Jail confirmed to me that Shannon Brandt, who reportedly confessed to killing a North Dakota teen because the 18yo victim was "part of a Republican extremist group," posted bond and is back on the streets.

Since his release, it appears Brandt started scrubbing his social media.
18-year-old Cayler Ellingson was killed in an apparent politically motivated attack. Moments before he was hunted down and slain in an alleyway, the teen called his mom to come rescue him. Here's the GoFundMe page for Ellingson's funeral expenses:

So about the Democrat Texas sheriff investigating Ron DeSantis' air-conditioned migrant flights to Martha's Vineyard...

In June, 53 illegals were found dead inside a sweltering tractor-trailer in his TX county, which DHS deemed the deadliest smuggling case in U.S. history. ImageImage
In the aftermath of the fatal smuggling attempt in his own Texas county, Democrat Sheriff Javier Salazar partly blamed Gov. Greg Abbott in a letter to Biden.

"I'm angry, Mr. President. I'm angry that I could not stop this massive loss of life in my county." Image
It was Salazar's third time reaching out to Biden for help at the border and still no response.

In the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election, the sheriff, then a Democratic candidate in the county, was on the Biden campaign bus.

You can't make this stuff up. "URGENT PLEA"! The ultra-wealthy on Martha's Vineyard has launched a GoFundMe fundraiser, already raising over $36,000.

Please help these struggling millionaires with multiple summer homes during this "humanitarian crisis"🙏

The organizer is an Ivy League alum from an affluent family and New York comms exec who donated 6x to Kamala Harris. Her wedding on Martha's Vineyard was featured by NYT and her family's $1.6 million+ home there sits near a private association beach.

The GoFundMe donations are going to Martha's Vineyard Community Foundation, which has assets under management of $14 million+. MVCF is also seeking money via a Migrant Relief Fund since residents are "concerned about the well being of the migrants...on our Island."

Memphis police are searching for two black males threatening to kill white people.

"He already shot a white old man. I'm fixin' to shoot a white old lady while her grandkids in the car."

Mentioned: Eliza Fletcher, "racism," and going "Zeek mode," aka mass shooter Ezekiel Kelly.
UPDATE: Memphis Police, Homeland Security, and FBI officers have apprehended Reginald James Williams, a five-time repeat arrestee. Williams is now facing serious felony charges plus two misdemeanors.

NEW: I've obtained an affidavit that says Williams vowed on video to shoot "any white hoe on the sidewalk" and "go Zeek mode on nothing but white people," referencing Memphis gunman Ezekiel Kelly who Facebook live streamed last week's mass shooting.

Memphis gunman Ezekiel Kelly, who Facebook live streamed himself on a mass shooting rampage last night that killed at least 4 and injured 3, was photographed SMILING in his booking photo.

Kelly is now facing a first-degree murder charge. Image
Memphis mass shooter Ezekiel Kelly also SMILED for the camera when he was arrested and placed in the back of a cop car.

Kelly has a violent rap sheet but—like Eliza Fletcher murder suspect Cleotha Abston—was released early from prison. Image
#Memphis mass shooter is a NEWLY RELEASED felon who only served 11 months of his 3-year prison sentence.

Ezekiel Kelly was freed in March after he was convicted of a lesser offense (aggravated assault). His attempted first-degree murder and felony firearm charges were DISMISSED. ImageImageImage

"I just got out."

Felon Charged in Murder of Kidnapped Teacher Eliza Fletcher Was RELEASED EARLY From Prior Abduction Conviction

I dug into career criminal Cleotha Abston's social media history. The murder suspect had an online countdown to his release.

"The count down has begun...free the real!!"
"I just got out."

It appears that Eliza Fletcher kidnapping-turned-murder suspect Cleo Abston knew about his 2020 release from state prison as early as 2017. ImageImage
Convicted felon Cleotha "Cleo" Abston, who's now accused of abducting and murdering schoolteacher Eliza Fletcher, wrote on Facebook about getting out of prison when he was serving a prior sentence for kidnapping. ImageImageImage
