The Russian leader also made veiled threats to use nuclear weapons if Russian territorial integrity is threatened. Putin announced the mobilization on Wednesday morning, stating “only military reservists, primarily those who served in the armed forces and have specific military occupational specialties and corresponding experience, will be called up.” Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said 300,000 people will be called up for service in the partial mobilization. Putin’s order falls short of a full mobilization of the Russian military, with a full-scale draft. France 24 reported that in an interview with Russian state television, Shoigu said students and those who already served as conscripts would not be called up and the majority of Russia’s reserve forces would not be drafted. During his announcement, Putin said western nations “have even resorted to the nuclear blackmail.” Putin said he referred to “the statements made by some high-ranking representatives of the leading NATO countries on the possibility and admissibility of using weapons of mass destruction – nuclear weapons – against Russia.” “I would like to remind those who make such statements regarding Russia that our country has different types of weapons as well, and some of them are more modern than the weapons NATO countries have.” he said. “In the event of a threat to the territorial integrity of our country and to defend Russia and our people, we will certainly make use of all weapon systems available to us. This is not a bluff.” The mobilization comes as Russia has seen setbacks in its war in Ukraine. Ukrainian forces have begun to retake territory captured by Russian forces earlier in the year. Last week, Ukrainian forces claimed they retook around 1,000 square miles in a matter of days. The mobilization of 300,000 reservists suggests a Russian effort to fend off the Ukrainian offensive and prolong the fighting in Ukraine. In an apparent prelude to Putin’s decision, Russian lawmakers pushed through new legislation on Tuesday that would increase the penalties for crimes committed during a period of military mobilization. Reuters reported the bill passed in its second and third readings in the lower house of the Russian legislature, the Duma, on Tuesday. The bill increases criminal penalties for acts of desertion, damage to military property and insubordination during a military mobilization period. https://thepoliticalinsider.com/southern-border-crossings-hit-all-time-record-this-is-a-national-security-crisis/ Southern Border Crossings Hit All Time Record. This Is A National Security Crisis We seem to be breaking all sorts of records lately, although perhaps not the ones we wish to be breaking. From crime rates to homelessness, we keep aiming for higher and higher numbers. The southern border is no exception to this phenomenon, with illegal crossing encounters surpassing two million for the first time, with one more month left in the fiscal year to go. But as the Vice President said, the border is secure, so why do we keep talking about it? As much as the Biden administration would like to make us believe that there is nothing to see at the border other than cruel Republican politicians and tumbleweed, we are facing an untenable crisis down Mexico way. The longer we ignore it, the more dangerous it becomes. Before diving into the dangers that lurk down south, let’s take a closer look at the numbers. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) reported that last month there were 203,598 illegal immigrant “encounters” at the southern border – in other words, people trying to cross the border illegally and coming into contact with U.S. officials. But, unfortunately, that’s just the number they know of; there isn’t a mechanism to capture the number of ‘gotaways.’ Gotaways are those that, just as the name entails, got away clean. Over the border and into the interior of the country. Last month’s numbers bring the total number of encounters for Fiscal Year 2022 to an unthinkable 2,150,370, with one more month to go. The last time that we broke the record on encounters at the southern border was just the previous Fiscal Year when we surpassed 1.7 million. That’s an increase of 450,000 more migrants or the equivalent of two months worth of migrants that came in this year. There have been some months where the CBP has recorded 8,000 illegal immigrants in one day apprehended at the border. If that were to be the daily standard, that would mean each week, 56,000 would be taken in at the border. So let’s see here, in the 11 months of this fiscal year, we have had 2,150,370 encounters. So let’s compare that to some other numbers. Population of Chicago = 2.7 million Population of Houston = 2.3 million Populations of Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Diego, Dallas, and San Jose = about 1 million Estimated amount of Russian troops deployed to Ukraine = 150,000 Total U.S. military troops to include reservists = 2.2 million Total active duty Chinese military = 2.2 million Total active duty Russian military = 1 million Think of it this way, we have the equivalent of the city of Houston pouring into our southern border. The world condemned, and rightfully so, the invasion of Russia into Ukraine. We have 14 times the amount of people invading our southern border. Or, to put it another way, the equivalent of the Chinese active duty military has bombarded the border. The number of people who have attempted to cross is greater than the total populations of 15 entire states: New Mexico, Nebraska, Idaho, West Virginia, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Maine, Montana, Rhode Island, Delaware, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska, Vermont, and Wyoming. Did anyone vote for this? Do the American people get a say in it? Something to think about folks… https://www.foxnews.com/us/las-vegas-dem-accused-murdering-journalist-faces-removal-job Las Vegas Dem accused of murdering journalist faces removal from job A Las Vegas Democratic official charged with the stabbing death of a local journalist who was investigating him is facing removal from his elected position. Local prosecutors filed a lawsuit Tuesday in civil court to have Robert Telles booted from his role as Clark County public administrator, which handles the assets of people who die without wills. Since Telles' arrest Sept. 7 for the alleged murder of Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German, he has been held without bail. "Defendant Telles has neglected to perform the official duties of the Clark County Public Administrator," according to the motion requesting that he be "deprived of and removed from his office." Telles, 45, was elected Jan. 1, 2019, then lost the Democratic Party primary in June – after German wrote stories accusing Telles of having an affair with a married underling and running a toxic work environment. German, 69, was working on follow-up reports when he was killed. Telles shut off his cellphone Sept. 2 and then attacked German in his home before allegedly fleeing wearing an orange shirt and a wide-brim straw hat, according to police. At a prior court appearance, a judge described the killing as "chilling" and said German was "fighting for his life" in his final moments. If a judge does not strip Telles of his position, he is entitled to continue raking in his $120,000 a year salary, with another $50,000 in benefits, until his term is up Dec. 31, 2022. The politician-turned-criminal defendant was assigned a court-appointed attorney Tuesday at his arraignment on one count of murder with use of a deadly weapon on a victim 60 years of age or older. He did not enter a plea. Clark County District Attorney Robert Wolfson said he would determine in the coming weeks whether Telles will face the death penalty. Redballoon Not so long ago, the American dream was alive and well. Employees who worked hard were rewarded, and employers looked for people who could do the job, not for people who had the right political views. RedBalloon.work is a job site designed to get us back to what made American businesses successful: free speech, hard work, and having fun. If you are a free speech employer who wants to hire employees who focus on their work and not identity politics, then post a job on RedBalloon. If you are an employee who is being censored at work or is being forced to comply with the current zeitgeist, post your resume on RedBalloon and look for a new job. redballoon.work, the job site where free speech is still alive! www.redballoon.work Now it’s time for my favorite topic… sports! https://nypost.com/2022/09/20/kyrie-irving-rips-eric-adams-latest-vaccine-mandate-decision/ Kyrie Irving rips Eric Adams’ latest vaccine mandate decision Nets star Kyrie Irving, who missed nearly two-thirds of last season due to his refusal to get a COVID-19 vaccine, ripped New York’s latest vaccine mandate decision. After New York mayor Eric Adams announced Tuesday that he’s ending the private employer vaccine mandate but keeping it for city workers, Irving took to social media to label it a human rights violation of historic proportions. “If I can work and be unvaccinated, then all of my brothers and sisters who are also unvaccinated should be able to do the same, without being discriminated against, vilified, or fired,” Irving wrote. “This enforced Vaccine/Pandemic is one the biggest violations of HUMAN RIGHTS in history.” Some might suggest that is slight hyperbole, but New York’s COVID vaccine requirements have been arguably the strictest in the country. Irving’s steadfast refusal to adhere to them saw him limited to just 29 games last regular season and only six home tilts at Barclays Center, once the city loosened rules for unvaccinated athletes and entertainers in March. A City Hall rep had no comment when asked by The Post about Irving’s critique. Irving should be available for this upcoming season. That, plus Ben Simmons’ Nets debut and the likes of Joe Harris returning from surgery, should give Brooklyn a healthier roster. “That’s all that matters. That’s all that matters,” Irving said Sunday on the Boyz Night Out podcast. “All the hypotheticals that come when nobody is healthy and when you’re not 100%.” Irving added that his vaccine stance was larger than the missed games. “I played 29 games, I barely played home games. It wasn’t a typical season I would have wanted. But things happen,” Irving said. “I had to stand on a whole bunch of bigger stuff than just that.” Now Irving will continue to stand on his belief that the municipal workers should be free to be unvaccinated, as the private sector employees now are. “Our vaccinated workforce kept the city open and operating, with over 300,000 employees it was crucial to put it in place and we’re keeping it in place,” Adams said while getting his booster at City Hall. “Our vaccinated workers have carried out their jobs and stepped up when the city needed them the most and we think it’s imperative to send the right message and lead by example.” Mayor Adams added that 89 percent of New Yorkers, including children, have been vaccinated. As such, the vaccine requirements for New York City schoolchildren to play sports and other higher-risk extracurricular activities are also being dropped. The city was still encouraging vaccines and boosters. “The rollout has been important and crucial and because we’ve been so successful, it’s time to move on to the next level of fortifying our city,” Adams said. “This puts the choice in the hands of New Yorkers. It’s imperative we’re asking them to continue to encourage their employees to get their vaccines and booster shots.” When asked about the municipal mandate – which led to over 1,500 city employees being terminated – Adams said no end date was imminent. Irving – who donated money out of his own pocket to help support WNBA players when the league was shut down due to COVID-19 – had also said he planned to help the municipal workers who had lost their jobs.

The Russian leader also made veiled threats to use nuclear weapons if Russian territorial integrity is threatened. Putin announced the mobilization on Wednesday morning, stating “only military reservists, primarily those who served in the armed forces and have specific military occupational specialties and corresponding experience, will be called up.” Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said 300,000 people will be called up for service in the partial mobilization. Putin’s order falls short of a full mobilization of the Russian military, with a full-scale draft. France 24 reported that in an interview with Russian state television, Shoigu said students and those who already served as conscripts would not be called up and the majority of Russia’s reserve forces would not be drafted. During his announcement, Putin said western nations “have even resorted to the nuclear blackmail.” Putin said he referred to “the statements made by some high-ranking representatives of the leading NATO countries on the possibility and admissibility of using weapons of mass destruction – nuclear weapons – against Russia.” “I would like to remind those who make such statements regarding Russia that our country has different types of weapons as well, and some of them are more modern than the weapons NATO countries have.” he said. “In the event of a threat to the territorial integrity of our country and to defend Russia and our people, we will certainly make use of all weapon systems available to us. This is not a bluff.” The mobilization comes as Russia has seen setbacks in its war in Ukraine. Ukrainian forces have begun to retake territory captured by Russian forces earlier in the year. Last week, Ukrainian forces claimed they retook around 1,000 square miles in a matter of days. The mobilization of 300,000 reservists suggests a Russian effort to fend off the Ukrainian offensive and prolong the fighting in Ukraine. In an apparent prelude to Putin’s decision, Russian lawmakers pushed through new legislation on Tuesday that would increase the penalties for crimes committed during a period of military mobilization. Reuters reported the bill passed in its second and third readings in the lower house of the Russian legislature, the Duma, on Tuesday. The bill increases criminal penalties for acts of desertion, damage to military property and insubordination during a military mobilization period. https://thepoliticalinsider.com/southern-border-crossings-hit-all-time-record-this-is-a-national-security-crisis/ Southern Border Crossings Hit All Time Record. This Is A National Security Crisis We seem to be breaking all sorts of records lately, although perhaps not the ones we wish to be breaking. From crime rates to homelessness, we keep aiming for higher and higher numbers. The southern border is no exception to this phenomenon, with illegal crossing encounters surpassing two million for the first time, with one more month left in the fiscal year to go. But as the Vice President said, the border is secure, so why do we keep talking about it? As much as the Biden administration would like to make us believe that there is nothing to see at the border other than cruel Republican politicians and tumbleweed, we are facing an untenable crisis down Mexico way. The longer we ignore it, the more dangerous it becomes. Before diving into the dangers that lurk down south, let’s take a closer look at the numbers. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) reported that last month there were 203,598 illegal immigrant “encounters” at the southern border – in other words, people trying to cross the border illegally and coming into contact with U.S. officials. But, unfortunately, that’s just the number they know of; there isn’t a mechanism to capture the number of ‘gotaways.’ Gotaways are those that, just as the name entails, got away clean. Over the border and into the interior of the country. Last month’s numbers bring the total number of encounters for Fiscal Year 2022 to an unthinkable 2,150,370, with one more month to go. The last time that we broke the record on encounters at the southern border was just the previous Fiscal Year when we surpassed 1.7 million. That’s an increase of 450,000 more migrants or the equivalent of two months worth of migrants that came in this year. There have been some months where the CBP has recorded 8,000 illegal immigrants in one day apprehended at the border. If that were to be the daily standard, that would mean each week, 56,000 would be taken in at the border. So let’s see here, in the 11 months of this fiscal year, we have had 2,150,370 encounters. So let’s compare that to some other numbers. Population of Chicago = 2.7 million Population of Houston = 2.3 million Populations of Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Diego, Dallas, and San Jose = about 1 million Estimated amount of Russian troops deployed to Ukraine = 150,000 Total U.S. military troops to include reservists = 2.2 million Total active duty Chinese military = 2.2 million Total active duty Russian military = 1 million Think of it this way, we have the equivalent of the city of Houston pouring into our southern border. The world condemned, and rightfully so, the invasion of Russia into Ukraine. We have 14 times the amount of people invading our southern border. Or, to put it another way, the equivalent of the Chinese active duty military has bombarded the border. The number of people who have attempted to cross is greater than the total populations of 15 entire states: New Mexico, Nebraska, Idaho, West Virginia, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Maine, Montana, Rhode Island, Delaware, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska, Vermont, and Wyoming. Did anyone vote for this? Do the American people get a say in it? Something to think about folks… https://www.foxnews.com/us/las-vegas-dem-accused-murdering-journalist-faces-removal-job Las Vegas Dem accused of murdering journalist faces removal from job A Las Vegas Democratic official charged with the stabbing death of a local journalist who was investigating him is facing removal from his elected position. Local prosecutors filed a lawsuit Tuesday in civil court to have Robert Telles booted from his role as Clark County public administrator, which handles the assets of people who die without wills. Since Telles' arrest Sept. 7 for the alleged murder of Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German, he has been held without bail. "Defendant Telles has neglected to perform the official duties of the Clark County Public Administrator," according to the motion requesting that he be "deprived of and removed from his office." Telles, 45, was elected Jan. 1, 2019, then lost the Democratic Party primary in June – after German wrote stories accusing Telles of having an affair with a married underling and running a toxic work environment. German, 69, was working on follow-up reports when he was killed. Telles shut off his cellphone Sept. 2 and then attacked German in his home before allegedly fleeing wearing an orange shirt and a wide-brim straw hat, according to police. At a prior court appearance, a judge described the killing as "chilling" and said German was "fighting for his life" in his final moments. If a judge does not strip Telles of his position, he is entitled to continue raking in his $120,000 a year salary, with another $50,000 in benefits, until his term is up Dec. 31, 2022. The politician-turned-criminal defendant was assigned a court-appointed attorney Tuesday at his arraignment on one count of murder with use of a deadly weapon on a victim 60 years of age or older. He did not enter a plea. Clark County District Attorney Robert Wolfson said he would determine in the coming weeks whether Telles will face the death penalty.

After New York mayor Eric Adams announced Tuesday that he’s ending the private employer vaccine mandate but keeping it for city workers, Irving took to social media to label it a human rights violation of historic proportions. “If I can work and be unvaccinated, then all of my brothers and sisters who are also unvaccinated should be able to do the same, without being discriminated against, vilified, or fired,” Irving wrote. “This enforced Vaccine/Pandemic is one the biggest violations of HUMAN RIGHTS in history.” Some might suggest that is slight hyperbole, but New York’s COVID vaccine requirements have been arguably the strictest in the country. Irving’s steadfast refusal to adhere to them saw him limited to just 29 games last regular season and only six home tilts at Barclays Center, once the city loosened rules for unvaccinated athletes and entertainers in March. A City Hall rep had no comment when asked by The Post about Irving’s critique. Irving should be available for this upcoming season. That, plus Ben Simmons’ Nets debut and the likes of Joe Harris returning from surgery, should give Brooklyn a healthier roster. “That’s all that matters. That’s all that matters,” Irving said Sunday on the Boyz Night Out podcast. “All the hypotheticals that come when nobody is healthy and when you’re not 100%.” Irving added that his vaccine stance was larger than the missed games. “I played 29 games, I barely played home games. It wasn’t a typical season I would have wanted. But things happen,” Irving said. “I had to stand on a whole bunch of bigger stuff than just that.” Now Irving will continue to stand on his belief that the municipal workers should be free to be unvaccinated, as the private sector employees now are. “Our vaccinated workforce kept the city open and operating, with over 300,000 employees it was crucial to put it in place and we’re keeping it in place,” Adams said while getting his booster at City Hall. “Our vaccinated workers have carried out their jobs and stepped up when the city needed them the most and we think it’s imperative to send the right message and lead by example.” Mayor Adams added that 89 percent of New Yorkers, including children, have been vaccinated. As such, the vaccine requirements for New York City schoolchildren to play sports and other higher-risk extracurricular activities are also being dropped. The city was still encouraging vaccines and boosters. “The rollout has been important and crucial and because we’ve been so successful, it’s time to move on to the next level of fortifying our city,” Adams said. “This puts the choice in the hands of New Yorkers. It’s imperative we’re asking them to continue to encourage their employees to get their vaccines and booster shots.” When asked about the municipal mandate – which led to over 1,500 city employees being terminated – Adams said no end date was imminent. Irving – who donated money out of his own pocket to help support WNBA players when the league was shut down due to COVID-19 – had also said he planned to help the municipal workers who had lost their jobs.

1 Lori Vallow's son has been charged with sexual assault. Lori Vallow's son, who is 26 years old, was recently detained on sexual assault charges. KUTV-TV reports that in Maricopa County, Arizona, Colby Ryan has been charged with sexual assault. It is reported by KSAZ-TV that on August 31st, Ryan went to the victim's house to watch television with her before engaging in sexually inappropriate behavior. According to reports, the woman repeatedly tried to stop Ryan, but he ignored her. KSAZ claims in court documents that Ryan apologized to the victim and began to cry after the incident. Ryan allegedly acknowledged to having raped the victim on a recording made by the alleged victim. During an interview with authorities, he allegedly admitted to having sexually assaulted the victim. According to court documents, Ryan was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on two charges of sex offenses. Lori Vallow, Ryan's mother, has been charged with the murders of her two sons and the first wife of Ryan's father. In May, prosecutors asked for the right to seek the death penalty in the event that Vallow is found guilty of any of the murders. Tylee, 17, and J.J., 7, were reported missing in December 2019 after they failed to show up to school for the first time since September 2019. Vallow's first wife, Tammy Daybell, was discovered dead in her house in October of 2019. Chad Daybell and Vallow got married in Hawaii around two weeks after Chad's ex-wife was discovered dead. On June 9, 2020, authorities conducted a search warrant at Daybell's residence and discovered "what looked to be two sets of unidentifiable human remains," later determined to be J.J.'s and Tylee's. J.J. had a plastic bag over his head, and duct tape around his hands and feet; Tylee had been burned and mutilated, according to reports. Tammy Daybell, Chad's first wife, died of asphyxiation. The trial against Vallow is set to begin on October 11. 2 Authorities in Las Vegas make an arrest in the murder of an investigative journalist. Authorities in Las Vegas have arrested a county official in connection with the murder of reporter Jeff German. A seasoned reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal named German was found stabbed to death at roughly 10:30 a.m. September 3rd, outside his Las Vegas home. Investigators executed search warrants on Wednesday in connection with the slaying, and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department confirmed the news to PEOPLE. The house of Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles was reportedly searched in accordance with the search warrant, as reported by the Review-Journal. When asked, police officials declined to validate the Review-account. Journal's Officer Lawrence Hadfield tells PEOPLE, "I can't confirm any suspect information at this time." "The probe is progressing at a breakneck pace." A number of media outlets are reporting that Telles was taken into custody on Wednesday. Sasha Loftis, a reporter for the Las Vegas CBS affiliate 8 News Now, was on the scene at Telles' home and Tweeted minute-by-minute updates. Loftis described how residents were urged to leave their homes "or not return back in the area" when police and SWAT troops arrived. She also showed footage of police and fire vehicles rushing to the scene. Loftis then tweeted that Telles had been brought to the hospital with "non-life threatening self-inflicted wounds." At the time, 8 News Now reporter Vanessa Murphy had confirmed the arrest of Telles from anonymous sources. The Review-Journal reports that German, 69, complained to HR that Telles had a hostile work environment and engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a staff member. After German's article came out in June, the democratic candidate Telles lost his re-election campaign. The Review-Journal claims that German was finishing up a follow-up report when he tragically passed away. Telles regularly complained about German on Twitter. A rustling in the trash prompted his wife to ask, "Honey, is there a wild animal in the trash?" He responded, "No, darling. Looks like it's @JGermanRJ digging through our trash for his 4th article on me." "Oh, Jeff... [laughing Emoji] @LVRJ#LasVegas." Telles joked that he had thrown away pizza and sushi, and then he described German as a "classic bully," adding, "Can't take a pound of critism [sic] after flinging 100 pounds of BS. Up to article #4 now. You'd think he'd have better things to do." The suspect and a red or maroon GMC Yukon Denali with chrome handles, a sunroof, and a baggage rack were released from security footage on Tuesday. Metropolitan Police Department Captain Dori Koren had previously stated that a "altercation took place outside of the home" in a press conference. It's impossible to picture Las Vegas without German's many years of casting a bright light on dark places, according to Glenn Cook, executive editor of the Review-Journal. Cook called German "the gold standard of the journalism business." After completing his Master's degree at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, German spent almost twenty years at the Las Vegas Sun, where he largely covered crime and politics. He was the first journalist to arrive at the scene of the Las Vegas massacre in 2017, where 58 people were murdered and 489 were injured. The county website states that 45-year-old Telles founded an estate planning and probate law practice. Telles was unreachable for further comment. However, we were unable to get a response from the district attorney's office in Clark County. 3 A co-defendant of R. Kelly's testifies about his skepticism of the sexual misconduct allegations against the musician. On Wednesday, R. Kelly's ex-business manager testified before a jury that he believed the singer's denials of sexual misconduct that emerged against his boss, and that he came to understand that defending against false charges was a cost of doing business for a superstar. Co-defendant Derrell McDavid testified in Kelly's trial for child pornography and trial manipulation in federal court in Chicago, and he said he observed no early signs Kelly targeted youngsters for sex, attributing the fabrication of the claims to Kelly's rivals and those trying to benefit off his popularity. Before the Labor Day holiday, the prosecution wrapped up their two-week presentation to the jury, which featured the testimony of four accusers who portrayed Kelly as a skilled manipulator. Conspiracy to obstruct justice charges have been filed against McDavid and Kelly, with the allegations centering on whether or not they attempted to influence the outcome of the trial in 2008, in which the R&B singer was found not guilty. Former Kelly colleague Milton Brown is the third defendant; he is charged with one count of conspiracy to receive child pornography. McDavid testified that he had witnessed the prosecution's star witness, known as "Jane" at the current trial, when she was a minor and a frequent visitor to Kelly's studio in the late 1990s. He claimed that Kelly vehemently disputed reports that he had abused his goddaughter Jane. On Wednesday, McDavid spent over four hours speaking in a dry, matter-of-fact tone from the witness stand. While the jury was out for lunch, McDavid approached the Kelly defense table and chatted cordially with his old employer. Jane, now 37 years old, testified earlier for prosecutors and alleged Kelly sexually abused her hundreds of times beginning when she was 14 years old. She also testified that she was the child pornographic movie star in a case from 2008 that was introduced as evidence in the current case. As far as she understood, Kelly was responsible for making it. McDavid is the only one of the three defendants speaking in his own behalf. Last Monday, attorneys for Kelly and Brown informed the trial court that neither of them would be testifying. This federal trial in Chicago follows another federal trial in New York, where 55-year-old Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in June.
