With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Kyle Rittenhouse and His Attorney The jury in the murder trial of Kyle Rittenhouse will begin its deliberations at 9:00 a.m. CST in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday after a ten-day trial that ended with a day of closing arguments by the prosecution and the defense on Monday.
The jury will consider two charges of first-degree murder, with the ability to convict on “lesser included offenses.” It will also consider two charges of reckless endangerment, and one charge of attempted murder. A curfew violation charge was dropped earlier in the trial, and the judge tossed a weapons charge Monday after prosecutors agreed Rittenhouse had not broken the law.
It is unclear how long the jury will deliberate; it could return a verdict as early as Tuesday morning.
The prosecution spent much of its closing argument behaving as a team of defense lawyers, attempting to poke holes in the defense’s argument that Rittenhouse had acted in self-defense when he shot and killed two rioters and wounded another on August 25, 2020, during Black Lives Matter riots that wracked the city after false reports the police had shot and wounded an unarmed black man, Jacob Blake Jr. (Blake was later found to have been armed with a knife while resisting arrest.)
At several points, the prosecution argued that the mob who chased Rittenhouse that night had the “ right ” to do so, and was full of “ heroes .” They also said that Rittenhouse provoked the attacks because he was armed and appeared to be an “active shooter,” and that he therefore forfeited the right of self-defense, and should have let the crowd beat him rather than firing.
The defense said that Rittenhouse did not have a legal obligation to be beaten in the streets of Kenosha and risk his life. It also pointed out that media reports that Rittenhouse was a “white supremacist looking for trouble” were false and that there was never any evidence to substantiate those claims (which were made by then-candidate Joe Biden, among others.)

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
