Posted Friday, September 23, 2022 | By Tammy Bruce Many of us openly condemn President Joe Biden‘s rhetoric accusing conservatives of being “extremists” and a danger to the country as likely prompting and even encouraging unhinged people to act with violence on those “warnings.“ And now here we are. A 41-year-old North Dakota man has reportedly admitted to running over Cayler Ellingson, an 18-year-old a teenager, explaining that the victim was part of a “Republican extremist group.” According to a probable-cause affidavit provided to Fox News Digital, “Brandt stated that the pedestrian called some people and Brandt was afraid they were coming to get him.

CHUCKLES: The Traffic Accident and Adam and Eve

A woman ran a red traffic light and crashed into a man’s car. Both of their cars are demolished, but amazingly neither of them was hurt.

This must be a sign from God!” The woman continued, “And look at this, here’s another miracle. My car is completely demolished, but my bottle of 75-year-old scotch didn’t break.
