Still No Charges For Man Who Admits To Shooting 84-Year-Old Pro-Life Canvasser
A man who has admitted to shooting a pro-life canvasser earlier this month is still not facing charges and remains under investigation.
Richard Harvey, 74, admitted during a news interview that he fired off a “warning shot” from his .22 caliber rifle when he heard his wife allegedly arguing with the elderly pro-life activist. He then claims he tried to push away her clipboard and accidentally shot her in the front of her shoulder. Notably, the activist, who has not been named, claims she was shot in the back while leaving the residence.
“I came out and she is screaming and having a great old time, and being told, I’m sure I heard at least a dozen times, ‘You’re trespassing, get off the property,’” Harvey told WoodTV’s News 8.
He “fired a warning shot into a pine tree out front” and then went to “club away” the 84-year-old woman’s clipboard and the rifle “went off,” he said.
Asked if he’s afraid of facing charges, the man told News 8, “It’s always possible, I mean I shot someone.”
But Harvey remains in the clear as of Wednesday. The Michigan State Police are reportedly still looking into the matter and will forward the findings to the Ionia County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, where a decision will be made on potential charges.
The activist was canvassing against a radical ballot proposal concerning abortion in Michigan, The Daily Wire reported.
Right to Life Michigan said in a statement on Saturday that the woman was canvassing in her community of Lake Odessa, Michigan, when she was shot in the back while leaving a residence during a “heated conversation.”
The woman the victim was speaking to before the shooting was Harvey’s wife, Sharon Harvey, according to the admitted shooter.
The story is gaining attention in light of the Department of Justice‘s targeting of a pro-life activist and Catholic father of seven Mark Houck, who was arrested at his home in Pennsylvania on Friday by armed FBI argents over an alleged simple assault outside a Planned Parenthood clinic.
The DOJ has also been sleeping on the dozens of attacks against pro-life pregnancy centers and churches by abortion extremists following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
STUDY: COVID Vaccines Detected In 45% Of Breast Milk.
Trace amounts of Moderna and Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccines were detected in new mothers’ breast milk, according to a study conducted by researchers at New York University.
The report – “Detection of Messenger RNA COVID-19 Vaccines in Human Breast Milk” – was uploaded to JAMA Network Open, which is a project of the American Medical Association, on September 26th.
Noting that “the initial messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine clinical trials excluded several vulnerable groups, including young children and lactating individuals,” the New York University Long Island School of Medicine’s study attempted to address the research gap by tracking levels of the vaccine in a cohort of breastfeeding women.
The study analyzed the breastmilk of 11 healthy women, with five study participants receiving a Moderna COVID-19 shot and the remaining six receiving Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. Researchers sampled breast milk for five days post vaccination, and trace amounts were detected in seven samples belonging to five different participants.
Forty-five percent of study participants, therefore, saw COVID-19 vaccines taint their breastmilk.
Of the samples containing trace amounts of COVID-19 vaccine mRNA, two participants received a Moderna vaccine and three participants received a Pfizer vaccine.
The study follows the British government’s Department of Health and Social Care recommending against COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant and breastfeeding women, admitting that “sufficient reassurance of safe use of the vaccine” for the demographic “cannot be provided at the present time.”
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, however, still recommends offering COVID-19 mRNA vaccines to breastfeeding individuals at the time of this study’s publication. Other federal agencies have authorized the use of COVID-19 vaccines following a massive lobbying campaign launched by the pharmaceutical companies responsible for manufacturing the products.
Additional studies into the vaccine have shown adverse effects on the health of its recipients, including altered menstrual cycles in women, lowered sperm count in men, and cardiovascular problems in children and young adults.
House Republicans Introduce Legislation To Redirect Funds From IRS To Border Patrol
House Republicans led by New York Rep. Claudia Tenney introduced legislation Wednesday to redirect funds intended for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as the border crisis worsens.
The legislation, first obtained by the Daily Caller, would rescind all of the unobligated funds under the Inflation Reduction Act, which Biden signed in July, for new IRS enforcement activities. These funds would be reappropriated for the CBP to hire additional agents to secure the Southern Border.
Republicans have expressed particular concern about the more than $80 billion in new funding for the IRS, which will allow the agency to hire up to 87,000 new employees. Although Democrats claim the increased funding will increase federal revenue and allow Congress to pay down the federal debt, GOP officials argue that middle-class and poorer Americans will face more audits.
“The Biden administration’s failure to secure the border and enforce our immigration laws has created an unmitigated disaster at our Southern Border that is impacting communities across the country. Meanwhile, President Biden and Democrats in Congress are ignoring the problem and instead giving tens of billions of dollars to the IRS so that they can audit an additional 700,000 working class Americans,” Tenney told the Caller before introducing the legislation.

Elon Musk expresses interest in doing business with Rumble
Elon Musk responded to Rumble founder and CEO Chris Pavlovski on Twitter late Tuesday, suggesting that the two should perhaps meet up. “Maybe worth talking at some point,” Musk said to Pavlovski.
It all began when Russell Brand was censored by YouTube, which led to Brand moving to the rival platform. Brand released a video talking about that censorship, which was over Covid vaccine information, and how YouTube leaves up videos that claim Covid vaccines are super effective, while taking down those that question it.

That piqued Musk’s interest. “Maybe worth talking at some point,” he said.
Rumble is a rival to YouTube, and promises a censorship-free, open platform dedicated to free speech, in stark contrast to their primary competitor.
Now everyone… it’s time for my favorite topic!!! Sports!
Kyrie Irving Reveals He Gave Up 4-Year Over $100 Million Contract To Remain Unvaccinated
Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving recently addressed the media regarding uncertainty he had coming back to the Nets in the off season and revealed he turned down a 4-year $100 million contract to remain unvaccinated despite Nets’ demand he get vaccinated.
Back in June it was announced that Irving opted into the final year of his contract with the Brooklyn Nets that will earn him $36.5 million.
Irving made the announcement through The Athletic’s Shams Charania telling him, “Normal people keep the world going, but those who dare to be different lead us into tomorrow. I’ve made my decision to opt in. See you in the fall. A11even.”
During the Nets’ media day, Irving was asked about his decision and whether or not he had any doubt about the Nets.
