Nobel Prize Committee Snubs Greta Thunberg, Awards Peace Prize To Someone Else

After a powerful and emotional speech in front of the United Nations in September, there was a lot of speculation that the Nobel Prize committee was looking at Greta Thunberg as a potential recipient of the Nobel Prize for Peace.

However, the committee ended up choosing someone other than the child-turned-environmentalist hero for the prize, giving it to Ethopian leader Abiy Ahmed Ali.

Ali’s prize comes after he successfully negotiated a peace deal that would stop violence at his nation’s border, bringing peace to his nation.

Speculation on Thunberg came after she made veiled threats of global revolution if the United Nations did nothing about the global climate crisis. It’s currently unclear how such threats may have affected her chances at a prize designed to celebrate peace.

The awarding of the prize to Ali will likely have no effect on Thunberg, a young child on the autism spectrum who advocates for the climate change movement, it is a serious blow to the psychotic death cult that has turned her into the golden calf they can worship and hide behind when they face criticism of pushing a crisis that has yet to manifest in any meaningful way, and whose previously touted “science” has yet to produce a single successful prediction.

The cult that has adopted her as their god has shown no signs of letting her be free to be an actual child who can enjoy life, instead opting to continue to fill her head with fear of climate disaster and a loathing for the developed world. They may also be seeking an early start on the 2020 Nobel Prize.

Protests Outside Trump Rally Turn Violent, Trump Supporter Attacked, Police Threatened, Have to Use Pepper Spray

President Donald Trump held a packed rally Thursday night in Minneapolis, Minnesota and enthusiastic supporters were out in force.

About 20,000 were in the building with more outside, with the line starting two days before, with Dan Nelson hoping to get a front-row seat. “My company went from stagnant to growing and from no bonus to bonus. With the tax cuts alone, my check has gone up. People are getting better raises than before,” Nelson explained.

The line was massive.

According to one supporter, it started at Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s office.

Trump touched on familiar themes, but also charged up the crowd to win Minnesota in 2020.

He also hit on Joe Biden in his speech, proposing a new t-shirt idea – Where’s Hunter? – a reference to Joe Biden’s son, the source of controversy over deals done in Ukraine and China while Biden was Vice President.

As electric as it was inside the building, outside the building it was chaotic, with protesters harassing the police, calling them “pigs” and trying to incite them. At least one officer reportedly had to use pepper spray on threatening people. They also burned MAGA hats. Multiple arrests were made.

They even attacked and chased one Trump supporter, after one person shouted, “There’s a Nazi!”

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) was particularly disgusted by the display outside. He condemned the leftists trying to intimidate people.

From Fox News:

Civilians, he said, are “consistently being intimidated” and are being asked to “cower” to what he characterized as a “new, socialist regime.”

“This approach toward anarchy continues to run amok. We cannot afford that in the greatest democracy on Earth.”

Protests Outside Trump’s Electric MN Rally Turn Ugly: ‘There’s a Nazi Over There’

President Trump did it again. He knocked it out of the ball park last night. The excitement and the emotion inside the Target Center was palpable. I planned to watch it for ten minutes and did not turn it off. He connected with his audience from the get-go. The faces of supporters seated behind Trump told the story, from their smiles and nods of agreement to their frowns when he talked about the impeachment inquiry. The crowd gets the feeling he would rather be there with them than doing just about anything else. And that cannot be faked.

Trump honored police officers during the rally, inviting them up on the stage and offering heartfelt praise for all that they do. Police had been banned by the city of Minneapolis from wearing their uniforms to the rally, no doubt a dictate issued by the city’s rabid anti-Trump mayor. So the police union had red t-shirts made with a “Cops for Trump” logo emblazoned on them. The crowd was a sea of red last night.

The scene which unfolded outside of the arena was in sharp contrast to the rally. Hundreds of protestors had gathered to jeer and harass Trump’s supporters. Democrats and Antifa thugs shouted slurs at Trump supporters, some throwing urine. They threw bottles at police officers and their horses. They stole MAGA hats and lit them on fire.

As one man left the venue, a protestor shouted, “there’s a Nazi over there” and instigators began to punch and slap him until he managed to escape.

The harassment began prior to the event, as supporters were lining up outside the stadium. Police were forced to use pepper spray to control the demonstrators. Fox News reported one protester was “photographed pouring milk on his face to counter the effects of pepper spray.”

These thugs are trying to intimidate Trump’s supporters into not showing up for his rallies. ‘Gee, maybe I won’t go if I might be attacked by protestors.’ However, it appears their strategy may be backfiring and actually increasing the resolve of Trump’s fans.

Fox News correspondent Matt Finn reported from the scene last night. He spoke to Jason Chaffetz who was hosting the “Ingraham Angle.” He described an “intensifying scene” outside the rally. Here’s what he had to say.

People are throwing objects at police, calling them pigs… people have been in our faces all night long, there have been instigators, there have been a few characters who have sought to disrupt and to suppress media crews.

Chaffetz asked Finn what will happen when attendees leave the rally.

Finn replied:

That’s what we’re bracing for. There are police in riot gear. There is certainly a very large police presence here…there are some bad actors in this crowd tonight. We have experienced them. They have been vulgar, they’ve been jumping in front of our cameras, cursing at us…I have personally covered Trump rallies before and tonight I would say is right up there with some of the worst…Earlier there were over a thousand protestors here, now there are at least hundreds.

Chaffetz asked if Finn could give him a sense of what the protestors’ message was.

He answered:

We’re hearing some of their signature chants. Whose streets? Our streets. Shut it down…Our crew and our security identified what are probably members of Antifa. They have the handkerchiefs covering their mouths. We had to relocate several times throughout the night. We’re okay, but there were clearly times when the instigators were going to clearly interfere with our reports. And that’s their message, that they have come here tonight to shut it down. We saw one, maybe two fires, moments ago, what very much appeared to be MAGA hats on fire. We saw people cursing police, running at them, throwing all types of objects at them, and we’re still witnessing that right now. People are throwing bottles at police on horses. The horses are reacting. They’re backing off.

The Transgender Craze: WTF?

Many LGBT-rights activists never believed Donald Trump’s campaign promises to be their friend. With his move to ban transgender people from military service on Wednesday, July 26, 2017, on top of other actions and appointments, they now see him as openly hostile. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

According to the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association, gender dysphoria, or transgenderism, affects between 0.002% and 0.014 of the population at large.  In other words, it is extremely rare and it affects men more than women.  Given these stark statistics, it becomes obvious that something else is going on when it comes to the “trans craze.”

Depending on who you listen to, being transgender is either a most profound decision to live one’s life as they truly see it, or it is a mental affliction.  There is no disagreement that trans rights have jumped ahead of gay rights in the hierarchy of social justice activists.  The trans craze has even jumped over the Pokemon Go craze.

In Great Britain, many schools are facing a problem as many at private boy and girl schools are coming out as transgender or “non-binary.”  In a single year- 2018- almost 2,600 British school-age children were referred to a Gender Identity Service clinic.  These clinics provide services to trans kids, including hormonal treatments and surgery.

Some school administrators have noted that many of those who have come out as transgender are just trying to be cool or rebellious.  Others were just trying to be radical or were being influenced by older students and YouTube stars claiming to be transgender.   Unfortunately, they also noticed that many of those who have proclaimed their transgender status to the world happen to be vulnerable, particularly autistic.

Many of these students in Britain do not “follow through” on their transgender fallacy, but almost 2,600 have under the aegis of these Gender Identity Service clinics.  Hence, it may be easy to dismiss the trans craze as another manifestation of the rebelliousness of youth.  Everyone holds some cringeworthy beliefs from their childhood.  Twilight was all the rage not too long ago with a strange infatuation with vampirism.  And who can forget My Chemical Romance?  Part of growing up is learning how to test the boundaries and to see what you could get away with as you form a personality whether that includes the length, color or style of your hair, the clothes you wear, the music you listen to, the books you read, and the movies you watch.  But changing one’s gender on a whim was never part of that process, but is becoming so now.

The research shows that the trans craze is less real than it is a social contagion, according to researcher Lisa Littman at Brown University.  Her research has shown that children exposed to peers who have recently come out as transgender or exposure to social media stars have an increased tendency to declare their transgender status at some point.  Further, she showed that besides simply declaring themselves transgender, they are more likely to accept the dogma of the social justice movement.  They lashed out at heterosexual people, especially white males, tended to play “pronoun police” at home with their parents, and often referred to their parents as not “parents” but as “breeders.”  The research showed that the vocabulary sounded “wooden” and “scripted.”  There is a good reason for that observation: it is almost word-for-word from the trans activist movement.

Other researchers have referred to it as a “mass sociogenic illness” and have cautioned educators.  They are not heeding that advice.  In Australia, even though the book was on the shelves since 2014, only recently has anyone taken notice of these words from an author quoting a person in a book about transgenders:

From six up, I used to kiss other guys in my neighbourhood, make out with them, and perform oral sex on them. I liked it. I used to love oral. And I touched their you-know-whats. We were really young but that’s what we did.

Transgender awareness days are becoming more commonplace in preschools.  In Britain, transgender charities are promoting puberty-blocking hormonal therapy among educators to foist as a choice for children under the age of 12.  The taxpayer-funded BBC instructs viewers that there are now over 100 gender identities.  That “fact” has yet to be proven except in the mind of the transgender activists.  Humorously, one is called “genderf@!&” where it is acceptable to combine a beard with a padded bra.  What used to be called transvestism is now called normal.

Challenging transgender activism can be dangerous to your professional health.  Take the case of Mario Lopez who questioned whether a child of three could choose their gender.  Lopez was forced to apologize by the Twitter mob for making “ignorant and insensitive” remarks faster than you can say “Saved by the bell.”  Ironically, his “ignorance” and “insensitivity” were actually the truth and required no apology.  Can we first allow a child to tie their own shoes, learn the alphabet and add two-digit numbers before they “get to choose” their gender?

The big thing in education these days is teaching our children acceptance.  There is a huge difference between accepting diversity and encouraging children who cannot tie a shoelace to change their gender with hormone therapy or, in the extreme, genital mutilation.

Western civilization is no longer under the sway of religious morality.  There no longer is a right and a wrong.  Everything is permitted.  But parents and educators can be the arbiters of morality.  It may cost you a job or it may cost you the wrath of the Twitter lynch mob.  However, the consequences of rash gender reassignment and hormonal therapies may leave an even longer trail of people with a lifetime of regret and suicidal dead bodies.

For the sake of 0.002 to 0.014% of the population, will we look back on these times of transgender activism and cringe?  Will transgenderism be the new Twilight, mullet, or My Chemical Romance?

NBA Silences CNN Reporter, Pulls Her Mic Away for Asking Players About China Controversy

Screenshot from this video

The Houston Rockets were doing a media availability in Tokyo after a game there, when a CNN sports reporter, Christina Macfarlane, dared to raise some questions related to the China controversy.

First, she queried Coach Mike D’Antoni, who managed to evade the question. He answered as some other coaches have that “it’s a tough question” and said he was just a coach, that he left it up to Adam Silver, the NBA Commissioner, to speak about NBA policy.

Later, Macfarlane tried to ask a similar question to players James Harden and Russell Westbrook.

“The NBA has always been a league that prides itself on its players and its coaches being able to speak out openly about political and societal affairs,” McFarlane said. “I just wonder after the events of this week and the fallout that we’ve seen, if you would both feel differently about speaking out that way in the future?

Macfarlane was then stopped by a team media officer and told they were only taking basketball questions. They took her mic from her, as she protested, “It’s a legitimate question.”

Harden and Westbrook both then refused to answer, obviously knowing better than to respond.

NBA really covering themselves in glory and they just keep compounding it.

The NBA later apologized for shutting her down and taking her mic.

“During today’s Houston Rockets media availability, a team representative interjected to prevent CNN’s Christina Macfarlane from receiving an answer to her question. We apologized to Ms. Macfarlane as this was inconsistent with how the NBA conducts media events.”

The NBA has been under the gun for shutting down speech from coaches and ejecting fans who were supportive of Hong Kong protesters from games or taking their signs.

Meanwhile eleven of the NBA’s Chinese partners have still suspended their relationships with them, according to the Daily Caller.

Ukraine President Sends Chill Through Democrats: We’re Ready to Investigate Meddling in 2016 US Election

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky likely made the Democrats and the Clinton team sweat today.

During a press event, Zelensky spoke about one of the things he discussed in the call he had with President Donald Trump that has caused so much attention in the United States.

Zelensky announced that they were “ready to investigate Ukraine’s alleged meddling” in the U.S. election in 2016, according to reporter Christopher Miller.

From Daily Wire:

Zelensky also addressed his new attorney general that will be heading up future investigations.

“This is a new, young team, we’ll have a new attorney general, an open, honest person, 100%. This is my man, I said. I meant it was a person from my team, not from the old attorney general’s,” he said.

Asked by Miller about Ukraine’s potential meddling in the next election, Zelensky told him, “I don’t want to interfere in any way in the U.S. elections and I will not be doing it… Elect your own president and do not interfere in the future elections of an independent Ukraine. With due respect for the United States and America’s policy, we are not serving the latter’s purpose, as we are an independent country. However, we do not want to lose our relations, we wish to strengthen them instead.”

Zelensky also once again confirmed that he did not even know about the U.S. withholding military aid until after the phone call with Trump, undermining the Democrats’ claim that Trump was using the aid as “pressure” to force Ukraine to “dig up dirt” on Joe Biden.

As Trump noted, Zelensky’s clear proclamation that he wasn’t pressured and didn’t know about any aid being withheld would settle the question of pressure or quid pro quo for anyone looking at the facts, but Democrats are more interested in trying to get Trump out than the facts.

But now Hillary Clinton and Democrats also need to be concerned about what the new investigation into 2016 meddling might reveal about Democrats involvement with the help of Ukraine.

Politico did a bang up report about the meddling and Democrats’ involvement:

Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.

The New York Times did a report on how a Ukrainian court actually found there was meddling in our election during the campaign in 2016.

The Kiev District Administrative Court, in a statement issued Wednesday, said that Artem Sytnik, the head of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, the agency that had released information about the payments, had violated the law. The court’s statement said this violation “resulted in meddling in the electoral process of the United States in 2016 and damaged the national interests of Ukraine.”

Additionally, Glenn Beck released an audio, allegedly of Sytnik, admitting he helped Hillary Clinton during the election by releasing “black accounting records” to hurt Paul Manafort and the Trump campaign.

So there’s a lot to start with, far more than was ever found in the Russia probe. And because it’s in control of Ukraine, Democrats may not have the ability to stop the investigation or to quiet the information that’s bound to come out.

Get the popcorn ready…

Rudy Giuliani Business Associates Arrested on Campaign Finance Charges

A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan announced that two of Rudy Giuliani’s business associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were arrested on campaign finance violations on Wednesday night at Dulles International Airport in Virginia. Federal prosecutors said they were attempting to leave the country. Each man was carrying a one-way international ticket. They are being represented by former Trump attorney John Dowd.

The Wall Street Journal reported that a source, “a person who was in the hotel,” said the men had lunch with Giuliani at the Trump International Hotel in Washington on Wednesday.

Both Parnas and Fruman are Ukraine-born, U.S. citizens. According to the indictment, they have been charged with “four counts including conspiracy, falsification of records and lying to the Federal Election Commission about their political donations.”

William Sweeney, assistant director in charge at the U.S. attorney’s office for the SDNY, told reporters, “These allegations are not about some technicality, a civil violation or an error on a form. This investigation is about corrupt behavior [and] deliberate lawbreaking.”

U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said that, “Protecting the integrity of our elections and protecting our elections from unlawful foreign influence are core functions of our campaign finance laws and, as this office has made clear, we will not hesitate to investigate and prosecute those who engage in criminal conduct that draws into question the integrity of our political process.”

You could have fooled us.

According to The Hill:

Prosecutors allege that the men engaged in a scheme using a shell company called Global Energy Producers to funnel donations to numerous Republican political committees, including ones supporting Trump and West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R).

The contributions, the indictment alleges, were “made for the purpose of gaining influence with politicians so as to advance their own personal financial interests and the political interests of Ukrainian government officials, including at least on Ukrainian government official with whom they were working.”

On Thursday, three House committees also subpoenaed Parnas and Fruman for documents relating to any efforts to pressure Ukrainian officials to investigate Joe Biden and his family or involving matters related to the Democratic National Committee or 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The Hill article goes on to say that Parnas and Fruman “allegedly lobbied an unnamed congressman to push for the firing of then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who was recalled in May.” Yovanovitch is testifying before House on Friday as part of the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry. The Democrats will try to prove that Trump had no reason to fire this woman. The reality is that she facilitated the agenda of the deep state. Among her corrupt actions, upon their first meeting, she handed then-new Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenkoa list of individuals who could not be charged.

The Post reports:

In May 2018, about six months before the men began working with Giuliani on his Biden investigation, a Florida business established by Parnas received a $1.26 million wire transfer from an account whose owner was represented by a real estate lawyer who specializes in assisting foreign buyers of U.S. property, court documents and corporate filings show.

Two days later, America First, the main pro-Trump super PAC, reported receiving $325,000 from a company Parnas and Fruman had incorporated the previous month called Global Energy Producers.

Last year, the nonprofit Campaign Legal Center filed a still-pending complaint with the Federal Election Commission over the donation, alleging that it appeared to be a straw donation that masked the identity of the original contributor.

Parnas told the Miami Herald last week that the money for the super PAC donation was from proceeds from the sale of a Miami-area condominium. Kelly Sadler, a spokeswoman for the super PAC, has declined to comment on “ongoing legal matters.”

“I can tell you that we scrupulously adhere to all laws and regulations,” she said.

An anonymous source has told The Washington Post that Parnas and Fruman have been helping Giuliani with his investigation of former vice president Joe Biden since late 2018. The source said that “Parnas and Fruman helped set up a Skype call for Giuliani in late 2018 with Viktor Shokin, the ousted prosecutor general, and an in-person meeting in New York in January 2019 with Yuri Lutsenko, then Ukraine’s prosecutor general.” Isn’t that part of a normal investigation, seeking assistance in setting up interviews.

So excited that they could tie Trump and Giuliani to individuals accused of actual crimes, the media seemed to spin this particular story extra hard, so I had to really work to separate the wheat from the chaff. Similar to the way Trump is considered guilty of everything he is ever accused of, Parnas and Fruman are presumed guilty by the left. It looks as if reports that Attorney General William Barr and Prosecutor John Durham have expanded their investigation, after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz expanded his in June, have the Democrats a little spooked.

BREAKING: We Just Found Out Which 2020 Presidential Candidate the “Whistle-Blower” Worked With

This is just breaking per the Washington Examiner.

A few days ago, I reported on the fact that the Trump-Ukraine “whistle-blower” was said to have worked with a 2020 presidential candidate by the ICIG. Though we’ve had our suspcions here at RedState, there was no official word or evidence revealing who it was.

That just changed.

The 2020 Democratic candidate with whom the CIA whistleblower had a “professional” tie is Joe Biden, according to intelligence officers and former White House officials.

Lawyers for the whistleblower said he had worked only “in the executive branch.” The Washington Examiner has established that he is a career CIA analyst who was detailed to the National Security Council at the White House and has since left. On Sept. 26, the New York Times reported that he was a CIA officer. On Oct. 4, the newspaper added that he “was detailed to the National Security Council at one point.”

This always made the most sense. The only reason a CIA agent would have had contact with a 2020 presidential candidate is if it came in the form of working with the Obama administration.

Previously, the whistle-blower’s lawyer had claimed this.

“First, our client has never worked for or advised a political candidate, campaign, or party,” said Andrew Bakaj and Mark Zaid. “Second, our client has spent their entire government career in apolitical, civil servant positions in the Executive Branch.”

This is called lying without technically lying. It’s Clintonian nonsense. Though the whistle-blower didn’t work for Biden as a political official, he worked in a professional capacity with him and that should have been disclosed immediately, not hidden away. It’s perfectly reasonable to suspect some form of political motivation could form from their previous relationship, especially given we know he’s a registered Democrat.

If you read the article at the Examiner, you’ll see numerous officials laying out how deep the contacts likely went. It’s probable he would have accompanied Biden on oversees trips and been in near daily contact with him.

None of this is going to help the perception of the Democrat’s impeachment case.

Little Girl Busts Justin Trudeau With Awkward Question: ‘Why Did You Paint Your Face Brown?’

Screenshot from this video

Liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been making the rounds of media events, trying to make amends, since he became embroiled in a blackface scandal, prior to the election for PM on October 21.

One stop was on the Facebook Watch show, “New Mom, Who Dis?.”

But when the interviewer gave one of the little girls the opportunity to ask him a question, she did. The little girl asked, “Why did you paint your face brown?”

“Ooh! Um, it was something I shouldn’t have done because it hurt people,” Trudeau replied. “Um, it’s not something that you should do and that is something that I learnt. I didn’t know it back then but I know it now, and I’m sorry that I hurt people.”

Noticeably, he failed to answer the “why” part of her question. Nor did he explain why he didn’t know that as a 29 year old man or why he had repeated incidents of blackface including one with his pants apparently stuffed.

The little girl had a follow-up. “But did you paint your nose and your hands brown?”

“Mmm, hmm, yeah,” Trudeau responded affirmatively. “And it was the wrong thing to do.”

Trudeau then gave a lecture.

From Fox News:

“And I had a good conversation with my kids around taking responsibility for my mistakes and making sure that we’re always sticking up for each other and not teasing each other and being respectful towards each other.

“And I’m sorry that I hurt you as well. I’m sorry that I hurt kids who … face teasing and discrimination because of the color of their skin. That’s just not right in this country or anywhere around the world. We all have to work together to make sure that that doesn’t happen.”

As The Post Millennial explained, the show is a pre-taped, written and rehearsed show, which means that the question was likely staged for him to use as another way to explain himself.

But even considering that, the explanation was awkward and fell flat. And lecturing others for something he says he did wrong is just a bit precious.

Not every crook went to Harvard.

Though, I’m sure some did.

Earlier, I covered the incredible story of a man who reported a crime to cops but failed to consider one breathtakingly important detail (here).

Here’s another headscratcher, as reported by good ol’ News Channel 5 in Nashville.

A man in Paducah, Kentucky had a big idea Monday night: Rob the local Country Inn and Suites.

How many people pay for their hotel stay with cash?

Aw, sometimes it’s better not to sweat the small stuff, like figuring out if there’ll be any dough where you’re gonna go thievin’.

The guy ran into the hotel with his mask and his gun and went rip-roarin’ into the annals of criminal history.

At first, he found the lobby empty, so he let himself into the workers’ area. The clerk returned to find him at the register and, from the looks of the security video, ordered him back to the customer’s side of the desk. At a point, the crook tried to climb over it, and she pushed him the heck off.

She then tossed what looked like a pile of loose bills from a stripper stage onto the counter.

The dude had clearly forgotten to bring a bag.

But sometimes it’s better not to worry about the little things, like how you’re gonna carry the loot.

The benevolent, bossy lady gave him a plastic bag.


Some of the money fell into the floor. When he leaned down to get it, it seems, he accidentally spilled out the rest.

He had quite the mess to pick up and stuff into that thin, crinkly bag, and a man’s only got two hands, so…

The guy laid his firearm on the counter while he took care of stealin’.

Sometimes it better not to fret over where you leave your gun while you’re performing armed robbery.

From the video, you can imagine the wheels turning in the woman’s head.

The guy’s up, he’s down, he’s turned around…

There’s the gun…

Finally, while’s he’s lollygaggin’ in the floor, she grabs the pistol. He lunges for it, too, but she wins.

The thief skeedaddled.

The end.

Just kidding: For some unknown reason, the guy came back into the hotel all “I’m Mr. Big Pants.”

He demanded she give him the gun.

She demanded that she didn’t, and she checked the piece to make sure it was ready for a fatal firing.

He climbed over the counter as she pointed the hand cannon at center mass.

This time, the unwanted guest decided it was time to check out of the hotel.

As it turned out, the gun had been reported stolen from a home on Adams Street in Paducah on September 20th.

Inside one Cory T. Phillips’s car was found a computer from the same Adams Street hit. The 26-year-old had been pulled over for not wearing his seatbelt.

The guy clearly needs to take a course on safety.

He’s been charged with first-degree robbery and receiving stolen property.

If his fellow inmates catch wind of the video, something tells me he’s gonna have a hard time in the Joint.

But perhaps he’s got an even bigger mass of folks ready to give him a bit of What For, about half a state’s worth: During the robbery, he was sportin’ an Alabama Crimson Tide hat. Folks in Bama don’t appreciate their team being used for ill.

It’s a good thing he didn’t attempt the stunt in the Heart of Dixie; they don’t have to reach for the counter — I promise you, they’ve got their own.
