Ashli Babbitt’s family is suing the U.S. Capitol Police for more than $10 million.
“Right now, we have no accountability — zero accountability — they give no explanation to justify the shooting and they do not even identify the officer. That is what they do in autocratic countries, not in the United States,” Maryland attorney Terrell N. Roberts III told the Washington Times.
The 35-year-old Air Force veteran was shot with a round from an anonymous officer’s “service pistol” in the Capitol building after she attempted to climb through a broken glass door in the hallway near the Speaker’s Lobby. Babbitt received aid in the Capitol from a Capitol Police emergency response team before she was transported to the Washington Hospital Center where she later died.
The family plans to sue the law enforcement agency under the Federal Tort Claims Act, which allows for monetary compensation if “a personal injury or death, caused by the negligent or wrongful act or omission of a Government employee while acting within the scope of his or her office or employment, under circumstances where the United States, if a private person, would be liable in accordance with the law of the place where the act or omission occurred.”
The unnamed officer who shot Babbitt will also be sued by the family.
Flashback: Harris protested at southern border in 2018, but hasn’t visited since taking migrant role
Vice President Kamala Harris has come under criticism from Republicans and former Trump officials for not having visited the border in her leading role in dealing with the migrant crisis — although she visited in 2018 to protest Trump-era policies.
Harris was appointed in March by President Biden to lead diplomatic talks with Mexican and Northern Triangles leaders in order to solve the surge in migration that has led to an overwhelming crisis at the southern border.
Kamala Harris Phone Call in Midst of Israel-Hamas Crisis Stuns Foreign Leader
by Kyle Beckerabout 23 hours agoupdated about 3 hours agoIt took only a hundred days for the Harris/Biden administration to blow up one of the most significant foreign policy achievements of the Trump administration: A path for peace in the Middle East.But as the Hamas rockets fly into Israel, a misguided attempt to seek help from a Middle Eastern leader has come from the White House. Yet it didn’t come from the nominal president Joe Biden, but from his vice president Kamala Harris.“The Royal Court of Jordan says U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris called King Abdullah II to discuss the ‘efforts to stop the Israeli escalations in East Jerusalem and the aggression on Gaza’,” Newsmax foreign correspondent Alex Salvi tweeted. He cited the Jordanian court.

May 25 (UPI) — Drivers in the United States will see the most expensive gas prices in seven years, experts say.
While gas prices have stabilized since the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack, AAA expects prices to hover above $3 per gallon in many parts of the United States. That’s a rise of 17 cents per gallon over the past month.
The last time prices were this high for Memorial Day weekend was 2014.
The Energy Information Administration said Monday gas prices are up by at least $1 compared to 2020 in virtually every segment of the country.
“AAA expects 37 million Americans to travel, mostly by car and plane, for the Memorial Day holiday weekend,” AAA spokeswoman Jeanette McGee said in a statement.
“That is a 60% increase over last year’s holiday and a strong indication that summer travel is going to be largely popular.
The national average on Tuesday was $3.04 per gallon, according to AAA. California has the most expensive gas ($4.17 per gallon) and Mississippi and Louisiana have the least expensive fuel ($2.71).
“With the increase in travel demand, gas prices are going to be expensive no matter where you fill up, so plan ahead,” McGee added.
“Holiday road trippers may come across some gas stations with low fuel supply in popular travel destinations, like beaches, mountains or national parks.”
Let’s “CIRCLE-BACK” to May 18th and see what the analysis looked like then. I think President Trump knows what he’s talking about.
Cost of gas in U.S. rises to highest level in 6 years due to pipeline attack
May 18 (UPI) — The average price for gasoline in the United States has risen to the highest level in years and is well over $3 per gallon.
As of Tuesday, the national average is $3.04 per gallon — the highest average in six years.
AAA says the cyberattack that disrupted the Colonial Pipeline last week has been a significant factor in the rise. The pipeline, which carries gasoline from the Gulf Coast to the East Coast, resumed operating last weekend.
The disruption created limited supplies of gasoline in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina, AAA noted, and prices in those states climbed as much as 21 cents per gallon last week.
“Despite the higher pump prices, Americans still take their road trips, but just may not travel as far as originally planned, or go to their planned destination and spend a little less.”
AAA says crude oil prices and gasoline demand will be the greatest factors in how far gas prices will climb.
Virginia and Tennessee have seen the greatest increases over the past week (18 cents), followed by Alabama (17 cents), Maryland (16 cents), Mississippi (12 cents), West Virginia (10 cents) and Texas (10 cents).
As of Tuesday, California has the most expensive gas in the United States, at $4.14 per gallon, followed by Hawaii, Nevada and Washington state. Louisiana, $2.72 per gallon, has the nation’s least expensive gas, followed by Mississippi, Texas and Missouri. (0)
He KNEW……….He always does!
President Donald Trump Thursday insisted, while gas prices are creeping up to new highs for Memorial Day weekend, that the United States is “energy independent no more,” but while he was in the White House, prices remained low.
“I’m sorry to say the gasoline prices that you will be confronted with are far higher than they were just a short number of months ago where we had gasoline under $2 a gallon,” Trump said on his website.
“Remember as you’re watching the meter tick, and your dollars pile up, how great of a job Donald Trump did as President. Soon Russia and the Middle East will be making a fortune on oil, and you will be saying how good it was to have me as your President.” “Wasn’t it great to be energy independent, but we are energy independent no more,” he added. “Shame, shame, shame. Other than that, have a great Memorial Day Weekend!”
I was having a conversation with someone about this topic just this morning. Isn’t it ironic that Biden had no problem whatsoever closing down the pipeline and putting all those hard working US citizen’s out of a great paying job in which to support their families? And THEN… TURNS AROUND and gives Putin exactly what he wants…??? And to top it off when we were the number one in the gas industry while President Trump was ruling the roost, now we have no status! Am I the only one who thinks something stinks to high heaven here? Is it just me that gets the notion that there’s more than meets the eye here?
The REAL question is…. 👇
WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO BIDEN THAT THE US IS NOW GOING TO BE FORCED TO BUY OUR GAS FROM SAUDI ARABIA NOW?????
A new video from the Center for Medical Progress exposes a gristly experiment at the University of Pittsburgh that involved scalping five-month aborted babies and implanting their scalps onto rodents.
Now, Pennsylvania leaders are demanding an investigation and urging the university to stop its experiments using aborted baby body parts.
“Publicly available information demonstrates that Pitt hosts some of the most barbaric experiments carried out on aborted human infants, including scalping 5-month-old aborted fetuses to stitch onto lab rats,” the Center for Medical Progress said in a statement.
… a number of the experiments using aborted baby body parts at the university are funded by U.S. taxpayers through the National Institutes of Health and, in particular, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases office, CMP found in its investigation.
