A data breach at a Christian crowdfunding website has revealed that serving police officers and public officials have donated money to fundraisers for accused vigilante murderers, far-right activists, and fellow officers accused of shooting black Americans.
In many of these cases, the donations were attached to their official email addresses, raising questions about the use of public resources in supporting such campaigns.
The breach, shared with journalists by transparency group Distributed Denial of Secrets, revealed the details of some donors who had previously attempted to conceal their identities using GiveSendGo’s anonymity feature, but whose identifying details the website preserved.
The beneficiaries of donations from public officials include Kyle Rittenhouse, who stands accused of murdering two leftwing protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last August. Rittenhouse traveled from neighboring Illinois to, by his own account, offer armed protection to businesses during protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
Rittenhouse, who became a cause célèbre across conservative media throughout late 2020, and was even supported by then president Donald Trump, held a fundraiser on GiveSendGo billed as a contribution to his legal defense. According to data from the site, he raised $586,940 between 27 August last year and 7 January.
Deplorable. Especially given that so called Christians are funding evil.

If you don’t know how to properly handle a gun, you should never be allowed to touch one.

Henrico’s Commonwealth’s Attorney Shannon Taylor confirmed the suspect is 14 years old. His name has not been released to the public because of his age.

A guardian for the suspect was present at the arraignment. …
Bremer, an 8th grader, was gunned down Friday afternoon in her neighborhood. She later died from her injuries at a hospital.
And on and on it goes, because people with guns don’t know how to keep them out of the hands of children.

Stimulus check as motive for murder… what a country.
An Indianapolis man has been arrested in a quadruple homicide that followed an alleged argument over a stimulus check, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Officers were dispatched after a report of a person shot on Saturday night, according to a news release from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. Police found a woman who had injuries consistent with a gunshot wound, the release said.
The woman, who was transported to a local hospital in critical condition, told officers there were more victims, the affidavit states.

So it turns out Neera Tanden criticized @Sen_JoeManchin’s daughter for her extraordinary pay increases, after she raised the price of the Epi-Pen from $100 to $600 and moved Mylan’s HQ to the Netherlands to reduce taxes.
Here’s the NY Times story from some years back with all the details.
Politicians… they’re all just self serving greedy wretches. The democrats are no different than the republicans in Congress.
Sen. Ted Cruz flew to Cancun, Mexico, with his family this week as Texas dealt with a winter storm that left millions without power, Fox News has confirmed.
Photographs of Cruz, R-Texas, at an airport began circulating on social media late Wednesday, with people alleging that the senator had left the state for Cancun amid a major crisis. A Republican source told Fox News that the allegations Cruz was traveling to the Mexican city are true.
“The photos speak for themselves,” the source said.
A vote for Ted Cruz in 2022 is a vote for the misery of Texas. And where’s this story from? Some left wing hit group like Huffington Post? Nope. It’s from Fox News.
Is there anyone in the GOP that isn’t a craven selfish reprobate?
That’s why Bezos is so rich. No one rich is moral.
It’s a story that’s a month old, but one worth reminding ourselves of. These people are exactly who they say they despise.
Free will [is a] term fabricated out of nothing. Scripture everywhere declares that man is captive, servant and slave of the devil, is carried away by all his inclinations into vice, and is unable to understand what the things of God are, let alone perform them.
He’s not wrong. You’ll not find the notion of free will in Scripture.
The increasing number of details leaking out proving that the Trump White House wanted the riot and insurrection to occur almost guarantee that Trump will face a massive criminal investigation into his role in the entire matter, including the White House’s failure to do much of anything to intercede after inciting the insurrection. … On Friday, CNN reported that amidst all the violence and danger, Melania hosted a photoshoot of the furniture and rugs she has had restored in the White House for a coffeetable book she is writing.
But now we find out that White House staff begged Melania to intercede and force Trump to go on TV and get the terrorists to stop. Melania is one of the very few people left in this country that has any pull at all with Trump. She refused to even speak to Trump about it and moved on wiping a vase. According to the Daily Mail:
The heart of US government was under siege, our very democracy on the line, but Mrs Trump was calmly arranging porcelain figurines for the photographer,’ the source continued, saying even the most loyal remaining Trump staffers were left ‘dumbfounded’ by her actions.
Indeed, the First Lady’s closest adviser, her chief of staff Stephanie Grisham, tendered her resignation later that day.
Melania was even asked to intercede, to force her husband to publicly decry the insurgency, but she refused. ‘She said nothing. She remained silent and carried on arranging a vase for the shoot. She checked out of this presidency and her marriage a long time ago.’
She is who she married. If you were of the opinion that she is a good person, you are sorely and sadly mistaken. Melania cares about one thing: Melania.
How else to explain the evil? Seriously. What kind of person does such a thing unless they’re simply evil. Not sick. Not emotionally disturbed. Evil.
A Milwaukee pharmacist was arrested Thursday and accused of “tampering with and causing the destruction” of more than 550 doses of the Moderna vaccine against the coronavirus last week, Grafton, Wis., police confirmed.
In a statement, Grafton Police Department officials said the pharmacist — now fired from the Advocate Aurora Health hospital system — was arrested on recommended charges of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, adulterating a prescription drug and criminal damage to property.
Officials did not release the individual’s identity “pending formal advisement of charges.” However, a licensed pharmacist named Steven Brandenburg was booked Thursday for the same charges, according to the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department.
Officials said that in a written statement to Aurora Health public safety officials, the pharmacist responsible admitted “to intentionally removing the vaccine knowing that if not properly stored the vaccine would be ineffective.”
