North Carolina man charged for shooting woman with a BB gun as she mistakenly grabbed his Trump lawn sign

Published

On Saturday, Fox 13 Memphis reported that a man in Lincolnton, North Carolina shot a woman in the arm with a BB gun after she mistakenly thought his Trump sign had been put in her brother’s yard as a joke, and tried to remove it.

“Peggy Fox told WSOC-TV she saw a political sign in what she thought was her brother’s front yard. When she went to remove it, his 76-year-old neighbor shot her with an air gun, striking her near the elbow,” said the report. “Fox said she thought the sign was placed in the yard by a prankster, as her brother never talks about politics. What’s more, the sign was placed closer to her brother’s front door than the neighbor’s house, and the exact property lines were unclear to her.”

“Fox didn’t make it a few steps before she felt the ‘excruciating pain’ of the pellet,” continued the report. “The neighbor, Worth McAllister, said he yelled at Fox to stop before he opened fire. Fox said she didn’t hear him say anything. When Fox confronted McAllister, he encouraged her to call the police.”

The BB is reportedly still in Fox’s arm. McAllister is being charged with misdemeanor assault over the incident.

“You can’t shoot people on your property,” Fox told WSOC-TV. “He actually believed he could shoot me if I was on his property, and to me, that’s terrifying.”

Administration officials already weary of Trump’s election challenge: ‘Everyone has to fake it’

Published

Writing in the Daily Beast this Thursday, Asawin Suebsaeng and Sam Stein contend that in the wake of his loss to Joe Biden in the 2020 election, President Donald Trump has embraced "the very bunkered existence that he spent months accusing Joe Biden of living."

"Trump hasn’t taken questions in weeks. He’s barely appeared in public," they write. "When he has, it’s been so brief and odd-sounding as to raise questions about the point of it all. He claims to be fighting for the future of democracy. But the most tangible activity in which he’s engaged has been golf."

Ex-Michael Flynn aide compares him to Jesus Christ because ‘persecutors’ got ’30 pieces of silver’

Published

Former Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland on Thursday applauded President Donald Trump for granting a pardon to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who pled guilty as part of the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

During an appearance on Newsmax, McFarland seemingly compared the disgraced national security adviser to Jesus Christ, who was betrayed for "30 pieces of silver."

"And the thing that's really upsetting about this is Gen. Flynn never committed a crime in the first place," McFarland opined. "It was all made up. Did he plead guilty? Yes. But why? Because they blackmailed him and they extorted him, said that we'll persecute your son if you don't."
