The actor, whose IMDb page lists credits for “NCIS: New Orleans” and “Game of Thrones,” was arrested last week after LAPD detectives claimed he was in sexually explicit communication with an out-of-state minor.
Joseph Gatt, a 50-year-old English actor living in Los Angeles and perhaps known for his recurring roles in “Game of Thrones” and “NCIS: New Orleans” was arrested on April 6th after Los Angeles Police Department detectives claimed that he was having online, sexually explicit communications with an out-of-state minor.
This is not the first time that Gatt has victimized a minor, as there was already an outstanding felony warrant for his arrest based off of similar circumstances with another minor victim.
BeMiller rates Trump as ‘false’ and lying because he accurately described the events of August 25, 2020 when Kyle Rittenhouse shot three people, killing two of them, in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The media quickly took the side of the pro-BLM protesters, and decided to Nicholas Sandmann the defendant Kyle Rittenhouse.
Major Misinterpretation of Source Material
Here’s the main argument by BeMiller as she declares Trump false:
In an Aug. 31, 2020 media briefing, on the eve of his visit to Kenosha, Trump defended Rittenhouse’s actions when asked about the teenager. “You saw the same tape as I saw,” Trump said. “And he was trying to get away from them, I guess; it looks like. And he fell, and then they very violently attacked him. And it was something that we’re looking at right now and it’s under investigation.” He went on to say of Rittenhouse: “I guess he was in very big trouble. He would have been — I — he probably would have been killed.” The president correctly describes some minor details about that night. But overall, his comments grossly mischaracterize what happened — leaving out that by the time of the events he described, prosecutors say Rittenhouse had already shot and killed a man.
So her point seems to be that President Trump wasn’t wrong about what he said per se, but because he left out the fact Rittenhouse had shot Joseph Rosenbaum earlier, it is missing context.
There are really only three factual claims made by Trump here:
1] “he was trying to get away from them, I guess; it looks like.” 2] “And he fell, and then they very violently attacked him.” 3] “he probably would have been killed.”
These are the three things claimed by Trump. Politifact rates this statement as ‘false’ and Trump painting a “false picture” because it doesn’t reference the death of Rosenbaum. But Rosenbaum’s death isn’t relevant to the accuracy of what is being said. It doesn’t change the nature of the video or the question of Rittenhouse’s guilt or innocence.
As you can probably notice, it really depends on what Trump meant by “them” and at what point in the night Trump was referencing Rittenhouse’s flight from the BLM riot mob.
Rittenhouse was first accosted by the mob when he tried putting out dumpster fires with fire extinguishers. 
As seen in video from the event, he is then chased by a crowd that includes Rosenbaum. Rosenbaum then confronts Rittenhouse off-camera, grabs the barrel of the gun, and tells Rittenhouse he’s going to kill him. The fatal shot for Rosenbaum, a violent felon, is off-camera and not seen.
The riot mob then continues to chase Rittenhouse down the street. Rittenhouse falls, is violently attacked, and responds to his attackers by shooting two of them. It’s clear that when Gaige Grosskreutz approaches Rittenhouse, he is intending to kill him as he has his handgun out and is posing as a peaceful paramedic even though his obviously coached trial statements said otherwise.  Grosskreutz filed a $20 million lawsuit against the City of Kenosha because, he says, they let ‘roving bands of militia’ run around.  So Grosskreutz had a strong financial incentive not to tell the whole truth during the trial.
If Trump meant that Rittenhouse was ‘trying to get away from them’ when they were at the dumpster fires, then you could argue that the intervening murder of Rosenbaum was relevant.
But if Trump meant that Rittenhouse was ‘trying to get away from them’ when he was being chased by the mob after shooting Rosenbaum, then it’s less relevant because the motives of the crowd in seeking to kill Rittenhouse aren’t as relevant or important to the story as are the actions by Rittenhouse.
The clearest video that was available right away were the shots involving Anthony Huber and Gaige Grosskruetz. The shooting of Rosenbaum, earlier, was on grainy video and the fatal shot was not captured. It’s very reasonable for Trump to have been making his statements based on the shootings of Huber and Grosskruetz.
So what BeMiller is doing is assuming bad faith in her statement. She’s ignoring other reasonable interpretations in order to project a bad motive upon Trump. This is a misrepresentation of the source material.
This kind of chronic misrepresentation was also evident in the background given for the underlying protests. According to the mainstream media, it was because some poor soul got shot seven times.
Here’s what BeMiller said of the underlying cause of the riots: the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
Jacob Blake, 29, was shot in the back seven times at close range by Officer Rusten Sheskey on Aug. 23, 2020 as he walked away from officers and tried to get into an SUV with three of his children inside. The shooting left him paralyzed from the waist down, according to his family.
The officer’s name is irrelevant to the story. It’s a way to personalize the topic to make the shooting not by the police enforcing the law, but by a specific person. It’s a way to unnecessarily racialize the topic given that Rusten Sheskey is white and Blake is black.
What BeMiller and Politifact leaves out, is that Blake was accused of sexual assault of a sleeping woman, his ex-girlfriend, who was in bed with one of her young children at the time of the assault.  Police filed charges against him for felony sexual assault. Part of the proceedings was a restraining order telling Blake not to return to the residence of his ex-girlfriend. Blake was wanted for failing to appear in court related to those charges. 
Police were called to a 911 call of a man brandishing a knife in violation of a restraining order, they recognized Blake and went to arrest him for his outstanding warrants. 
Blake was at the residence of his sexual assault accuser, a location he was specififally ordered not to go pursuant to the restraining order. 
Blake was brandishing a knife when police officers showed up,  and declared he was going to his car to get a gun. When he reached into his car he was shot by police. Blake later admitted he was holding a knife when the police showed up.  The media was trying hard to cover up the fact that Blake was armed. 
As you can see, there is major missing context to the Jacob Blake part of this story. That kind of chronic media malpractice is what led to the protests in Kenosha in the first place, because by making Blake’s crime seem as though it was merely his skin color, many low-information liberals emotionally thought that they needed to protest and create chaos to get political attention.
The selective reporting on Jacob Blake is so egregious as to constitute lying about the topic. Portraying Blake as a victim is a stunning mischaracterization.
That’s hardly the last major mischaracterization in the piece as well. BeMiller refers to these individuals as “protesters” seven times and never ‘rioters’ or ‘arsonists’ or a violent mob. She only uses the word “violence” and its variations four times, each time referencing Trump’s usage of the word in his quote. So Politifact gives the impression that the left-wing mob burning down Kenosha businesses were peacefully holding signs and singing Buffalo Springfield songs.
Yet these were people burning down businesses and rioting through a city where the police were overwhelmed and cowardly hiding blocks away. The police claim that this was not an official ‘stand down’ order, but they were certainly nowhere in sight policing the town that night.
Gaige Grosskruetz was wearing a vest labelled “paramedic” and was illegally carrying a handgun.  Grosskruetz told NPR he attends BLM rallies and protests regularly as a ‘paramedic’ and as a ‘legal observer.’ 
If that is true, then he’s not a ‘protester.’ 
Arguably Joseph “shoot me n*****” Rosenbaum  was a protester, and Anthony Huber may arguably have been a ‘protester’ but Grosskruetz is certainly not. He was an armed snake posing as something he was not. He was not even posing as a protester.
Yet after all these mistakes, after all these mischaracterizations, Politifact and BeMiller are still sure that they caught Trump in a lie.
Let’s read their conclusory paragraphs and decide if that’s true:
Trump said a video shows Rittenhouse “was trying to get away from” protesters” and “fell, and then they violently attacked him.”
Rittenhouse did fall as a crowd followed him, but Trump’s comments leave an incendiary and false picture: By the time he fell, according to criminal charges, Rittenhouse had already shot and killed one person that night.
We rate the claim False.
Trump’s statement is entirely correct. Rosenbaum’s death earlier in the evening is irrelevant to the truth that Trump spoke. Trump was not leaving out any relevant context to his statement or to the recitation of basic facts about the Rittenhouse case.
Everything about Politifact’s analysis is wrong here. They are lying about what Trump should have said, and they are lying about what happened in the Rittenhouse shootings.

The Hilarious Angle of the Whole Liberal Meltdown Over Elon Musk’s Push to Buy Twitter
Spencer wrote about this yesterday. Elon Musk is trying to buy Twitter for $43 billion.He’s offering $54.20 per share. It set off a liberal meltdown that we haven’t seen in a long time. Of course, have a good laugh. These people are cartoon characters. Enjoy the liberal tears flowing. Enjoy the snowflakes throwing a tantrum. Take joy that Twitter employees are mentally wrecked right now…because someone decided to make a bid for their publicly-traded company. This is the free market. Welcome. What makes it doubly delicious is that for years, the Left said Twitter can ban and censor whomever they want. Musk wrecked that illusion. These precious little snowflakes are just worried that they can’t censor conservatives should this purchase go through.
What’s also notable is the level of free speech resistance that’s taken hold. We all knew it was bad. We all knew it was systemic among liberals. The words are violence crowd dominates the Left which is ironic since they cheer on actual violence when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars. You can’t have it both ways, but that’s liberalism. It’s unprincipled, immoral, and will they’ll eat their own arguments. Look no further than Defiant L’s on Twitter. The account finds some grade-A gems.
The Left has a free speech problem. They have had anti-Semitism for years. The erasure of opinions you don’t like is inherently un-American, though we all know that liberals are not patriots whatsoever. No one cares about your feelings. No one.
Even Nate Silver, who is not a conservative, mocked the rage from the Left concerning Elon’s possible Twitter buy. Also, if you’re a writer for Bloomberg or The Washington Post, spare us the billionaires controlling speech narrative. Both of your outlets are owned by billionaires, Michael Bloomberg, and Jeff Bezos respectively. Again, you all knew this, but the Left often needs reminding. The lack of self-awareness from some liberal writers on this is truly entertaining.
People walk through Sky Harbor ICDC Extends Federal Mask Mandate
The order, which was to expire on April 18, will remain in place until May 3 to let officials at the agency assess whether the BA.2 virus subvariant drives a fresh wave of cases. “In order to assess the potential impact the rise of cases has on severe disease, including hospitalizations and deaths, and health care system capacity, the CDC order will remain in place at this time,” the CDC said in a statement.
The order was first imposed in January 2021 and applies to trains, airplanes, and other modes of transportation under purview of federal officials, as well as transportation hubs such as airports. The CDC has repeatedly extended the order, despite growing opposition to the move.
Leaders of 10 U.S. airlines in a letter last month urged the Biden administration to rescind the order, noting that COVID-19 metrics have plunged and that authorities across the country have rolled back or eliminated restrictions.
Separately, groups of pilots and flight attendants filed lawsuits against the CDC and its parent agency, alleging the mask order is unlawful.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, said in a statement that the latest extension “simply prolongs the misery that passengers and flight attendants are being forced to endure.” “This is not evidence-based, but simply more COVID theater,” he said.
The CDC’s move came after it said it would allow the expiration of Title 42, a pandemic-era order that enabled quick expulsion of illegal immigrants because they might carry the virus that causes COVID-19.CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said the action was taken because COVID-19 cases fell by over 95 percent between January and March and because more of the population has some form of immunity from vaccination and/or prior infection.According to data reported to the CDC, about 36,300 COVID-19 cases were recorded on April 11. That was a slight increase from the week prior.COVID-19-related hospitalizations and deaths are also relatively flat after bottoming out following January’s peaks.Some experts pin the rise in cases on BA.2, a subvariant of the Omicron strain of the CCP virus, which causes COVID-19.White House COVID-19 coordinator Ashish Jha had said earlier this week that a mask mandate extension was “absolutely on the table” but that it would be up to the CDC whether to allow the mandate to expire or extend it once again
NATO Ukraine arms convoys are legitimate targets – Russia
Russia will perceive convoys delivering arms from NATO states to Ukraine as legitimate targets for its military once they reach Kiev controlled territory, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov warned in an interview published on Wednesday.
Regular contact with the US is impossible for Russia, considering “Washington’s unabashed support for militaristic intentions of the Kiev regime [and] the pouring of modern weapons” into the country by NATO members, the diplomat explained Moscow’s goal now is to make it abundantly clear for the US and its allies that Russia will use harsh methods in response to attempts to stymie its military in Ukraine.
“We are warning that American-NATO transports carrying weapons across the Ukrainian territory are considered legitimate military targets,” he stressed.
Moscow has maintained this position from the early days of hostilities in Ukraine. This week, the Russian defense ministry reported destroying four launchers from a battery of the S-300 air defense system delivered to Ukraine by an unnamed European nation.
The weapons in question was believed to be from Slovakia, which announced donating an S-300 battery to Ukraine last week. Slovak Prime Minister Eduard Heger called the Russian claim “propaganda,”citing Kiev’s denial of the report.
In an interview with TASS news agency, Ryabkov said Washington de facto refused to give straight answers about Pentagon-funded biolabs in Ukraine. Moscow and China said they were concerned that the labs were used for bioweapons research, an allegation that US officials have denied. The lack of a proper answer to legitimate questions “confirms that our concerns have grounding,”the Russian diplomat said.
Ryabkov said that all talks between Russia and the US on strategic stability and nuclear deterrence have been frozen. New START, the last treaty on nuclear arms reduction binding the two nations, which has survived since the Cold War, will remain in force until February 2026, he said.
The official added that American attempts to damage Russia through economic sanctions failed to achieve their goal, contrary to the “expectations that the Russians would surrender, as the West convinced itself.” The restrictions are hurting Western nations and businesses too, he pointed out. And while they may slow down Russia’s development, in the long run they won’t stop it, Ryabkov assured.
Washington “is irritated by our calm focus on the tasks of stabilizing the economy and ensuring its sustained functioning in the environment of unprecedented foreign pressure,”he said.
Moscow attacked the neighboring state in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements signed in 2014, and Russia’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German and French brokered Minsk Protocol was designed to give the breakaway regions special status within the Ukrainian state.
Russia has since demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.
The $800 million package includes cannons, radars, armored vehicles and helicopters.
Washington is expanding the range of weapons deliveries to Ukraine to include artillery, armored vehicles and helicopters, the Pentagon revealed on Wednesday. US President Joe Biden credited the $2.6 billion in weapons he has supplied to Kiev since February with defeating what he called the Russian plan to “conquer and control” Ukraine.
“The steady supply of weapons the United States and its allies and partners have provided to Ukraine has been critical in sustaining its fight against the Russian invasion. It has helped ensure that Putin failed in his initial war aims to conquer and control Ukraine. We cannot rest now,” Biden said in a statement released by the White House, after his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
In addition to more of the “highly effective” Javelin anti-tank missiles and Stinger anti-aircraft rockets, the US will now send “new capabilities tailored to the wider assault” it expects Russian forces to launch in eastern Ukraine, Biden said.
The Pentagon on Wednesday afternoon provided some details about the new aid, which is valued at $800 million – about $50 million more than estimated in leaks to the media on Tuesday.
