Man dons Knights Templar costume to scare away Muslims from New York military recruiting center

Published

on

Decked out in full Renaissance Faire regalia, a New York man has joined hundreds of patriots who have appointed themselves defenders of U.S. military recruitment centers, reports the Times Herald-Record.

Holding the flag of the Knights Templar and wearing a 10-pound steel helmet, Jeffersonville resident Joseph Frye says he wants to protect personnel at the military centers following the shooting at a Chattanooga recruitment office that claimed five lives.

“Service members should be protected,” Frye said. “They volunteered to protect us, so I’m just trying to put heat on the issue.”

Accompanied by his wife, the former Marine also brought along a bow and a quiver full of arrows, saying he doesn’t have a permit to carry a handgun.

This may come as a small relief to military officials who have asked armed civilian “guards” to stay away from the centers.

Thursday, in Lancaster, Ohio, one man guarding a recruitment center accidentally fired off a round into the asphalt of the parking lot while showing off his AR-15 assault weapon to a passerby.

Officials relief may be short-lived however with Frye setting up a Facebook page calling for a “Fire Watch” at recruitment centers nationwide on July 30.

“Citizens, I will be standing watch outside the Armed Forces Recruiters station in Middletown, N.Y.” Frye wrote. “I Encourage anyone & everyone who is willing to defend this Country, their own Freedom and their fellow citizens who lay their lives on the line everyday VOLUNTARILY to join me at their own local Recruiting station. “

“****Please be sure not to bring a weapon unless you are licensed to carry in your area.****We are not trying to incite civil disobedience, but to demonstrate we are able to defend our service men & women lawfully, by the rights given us by the Constitution.”

Frye also advised his fellow patriots to bring a lawn chair and plenty of water. Helmets and chain-mail optional.

A 21-year-old Florida man thought he had recovered from a mild case of COVID-19, and then he wound up in the hospital as his organs began shutting down.

Spencer Rollyson, of Canaveral Groves, tested positive for the coronavirus in May, but he started getting back to normal life after experiencing mild symptoms and then testing negative after those went away, reported WESH-TV.

"Little bit of a cough, a slight fever of 99.4, I think, for the first couple of days and then after that, I lost smell for about two and a half weeks and that was my only symptom for the entire two weeks," Rollyson said. "On May 21 is the day I got my negative tests results finally."

A conservative group’s push to unseat incumbent GOP senators is infuriating Trump and his allies: report

Published

on

Although The Lincoln Project is a right-wing group, it is not only hoping for former Vice President Joe Biden to defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, but also, is trying to help Democrats achieve a majority in the U.S. Senate. The group’s viewpoint is that Trump has been so toxic for the Republican Party and the conservative movement that a Democratic tsunami is needed in order to rid the GOP of Trumpism. And reporters Jonathan Easley and Max Greenwood, in an article published by The Hill on August 11, stress that the group’s push for a Democratic Senate is really getting under the skin of Trump and his supporters.
