NJ House candidate, Air Force vet, shoots down BLM Utah calling US flag ‘symbol of hate’

A New Jersey congressional hopeful and Air Force veteran launched a counterattack this week after Utah’s Black Lives Matter chapter declared the U.S. flag a “symbol of hatred” for Black Americans in a Fourth of July Facebook post.

“The fact of the matter is that Black people are Americans, and Black history is American history,” Republican House candidate Billy Prempeh told Fox News Friday. “And the flag is absolutely a part of our history. The good, the bad, the ugly, all of it. And that’s what makes America great, because despite all of that, we continue to move forward.”

BLM Utah founder Lex Scott told Fox News earlier this week that the post was meant to highlight how her criticism of the flag would draw sharp criticism while the embrace of Old Glory by hate groups including the Ku Klux Klan does not.

New Jersey Republican congressional candidate Billy Prempeh says Americans bickering over the American flag is something “our enemies would like to see.”

Prempeh sees it differently.

“Statements like that, saying that the flag is divisive, and that it’s carried by KKK members, it’s not necessarily true,” he said. “It’s a giant gaslighting statement to make to try and put all Americans, all the people that are pro-America, into a box stating that that’s a hateful symbol.”

BLM UTAH CHAPTER CALLS AMERICAN FLAG ‘SYMBOL OF HATRED’

The flag is the opposite, he said.

“I see the flag as a unifying symbol, a symbol that has changed over time,” Prempeh said. “And we haven’t always had the same American flag…And I believe that symbolizes all the things that have happened in this country over the past 245 years.”

The 31-year-old Republican House candidate said over the course of U.S. history, Americans made “incredible, incredible advancements” in terms of civil rights and social justice.

“And in 245 years, the world’s followed suit – to the point that many leave their home countries to become a part of the American identity and continue to push our country forward,” he said.

His own parents emigrated from Ghana in the 1980s.

“I’m an Air Force veteran, and I took a lot of pride fighting under the American flag,” he said. “And I still take a lot of pride in being under that flag.”

He also said he believed the late civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “would be proud” of the country’s direction.

“It’s only been 80 years since segregation,” he said. “And we had the first Black president elected not once, but twice.”

The Paterson, N.J., native is challenging Democratic Rep. Bill Pascrell for New Jersey’s 9th Congressional District seat.

In his first campaign ad, he declares, “America is a great nation, and Americans are incredible people. Anyone who tells you otherwise is straight up lying to you.”

Then he stands up and grabs an American flag – hammering home his “America first” campaign message.

Prempeh said he’s confident at this point in the race and wishes his opponent well amid rumors that the 84-year-old representative’s health is failing.

The candidate and other volunteers will be in Paterson’s namesake park for a cleanup along the Passaic River Saturday morning.

“Even if you don’t live in Paterson, we all share the Passaic River,” he said. “It’s our responsibility. Let’s make the Passaic River great again!”

New Yorkers Wade Through Literal Cesspools to Catch the Train

Leaving the house ten years ago: Keys. Wallet. Phone.
Leaving the house in 2021: Keys. Wallet. Phone. Face mask. Hand sanitizer. Life vest. Canoe. Tetanus shot.

As Hurricane Elsa puts NYC’s crumbling infrastructure to the test, New Yorkers are wading through toxic subterranean pools and flooded boroughs to get to point B. In a number of viral videos captured by people at the 157th Street subway station last night, commuters are seen attempting to protect themselves from the filthy water using trash bags, without much success. Above ground wasn’t much prettier for those trying to get through actual rivers of traffic. Many turned to Twitter to express concern and criticism toward MTA and the city. New Yorkers haven’t forgotten Hurricane Sandy and they certainly don’t want to experience the sequel.

Wedding Photographer Makes Fatal Blunder After Repeatedly Calling Bride The Name Of The Groom’s Ex

A rare early copy of ‘The Legend of Zelda’ sold for $870,000

Earlier this year, a nearly perfect copy of Super Mario Bros. for the NES sold for $660,000. Now, a mere three months later, The Legend of Zelda has shattered that record. On Friday, a rare, early production version of the NES classic sold for $870,000 at auction.

Outside of a single sealed copy from its original manufacturing run, it’s believed the game that sold this week is one of the earliest known sealed copies of The Legend of Zelda in existence. According to Heritage Auctions, the cartridge sold on Friday comes from the game’s “NES-R” production run. Nintendo only made that version of the game for a handful of months in late 1987. “Essentially, this copy is the earliest sealed copy one could realistically hope to obtain,” the auction house said of the game before it went on sale.

Still, $870,000 is a lot of money to spend on a collectible, whether it’s in mint condition or not. To put the price in perspective, Heritage Auctions sold a copy of The Legend of Zelda from the game’s more common 1988 “Rev-A” production run for $50,400 last year.

ICE will now avoid arresting pregnant or nursing migrants

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will no longer detain most pregnant, nursing, and postpartum women for deportation, reversing a Trump-era directive Friday

The latest adjustment to U.S. immigration policies adds to the growing list of restrictions placed on ICE officers – a move that has further frustrated members of the GOP.

While the Biden administration has said they are looking to make the U.S. immigration system more humane, Republicans have argued Biden’s policies have created a humanitarian crisis at the border and permitted unrestricted illegal immigration.

EX-CBP DEPUTY COMMISSIONER SAYS BORDER CRISIS ‘UNLIKE ANYTHING I’VE EVER SEEN,’ WARNS OF ‘BROKEN’ SYSTEM

“There’s nothing humane about encouraging human trafficking of infants and pregnant women,” Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton said Friday. “This policy will make the Biden border crisis worse.”

The Biden administration is already facing a lawsuit from Texas sheriffs, their counties, and the Federal Police Foundation – which represents ICE officers – over ICE’s inability to deport illegal immigrants with criminal backgrounds.

But acting ICE Director Tae Johnson said the newest regulations preserve the “health and safety of pregnant, postpartum and nursing individuals” and reflect “our commitment to treat all individuals with respect and dignity.”

The policy directs that in the limited instances when detention is necessary, expectant mothers, along with postpartum, or nursing individuals will be monitored and receive necessary medical and mental health care.

“Given the unique needs of this population, we will not detain individuals known to be pregnant, postpartum, or nursing unless release is prohibited by law or exceptional circumstances exist,” Johnson said Friday.

HOMAN GOES OFF ON RASHIDA TLAIB’S NEW ‘DEFUND’ PUSH: ‘SINGLE DUMBEST THING I’VE HEARD’ FROM ANY LAWMAKER

Pregnant and postpartum mothers could still face detention in “very limited circumstances” if the woman “poses an imminent risk of death, violence, or physical harm.”

Under the Obama administration, pregnant women detained by immigration authorities were released from detention, though in 2017 Trump reversed the order.

Supporters of detaining expectant mothers argue that if they are released they could solidify their position in the U.S. if their child is born before deportation hearings occur.

Opponents of detaining pregnant women argue it puts the health and safety of the mother and infant at risk.

Governors Of 2 Undervaccinated States Say No To Biden’s Door-To-Door Vaccine Push

Wedding Photographer Makes Fatal Blunder After Repeatedly Calling Bride The Name Of The Groom’s Ex

Despite their promises of happiness and celebration, weddings can be fraught affairs. All that organization, money and family politics can mean that emotions are running high before anybody even starts to walk down the aisle. What’s even worse, though, is when the day is going well and something random comes out of nowhere to try and ruin it.

This was the case in a video shared by @JPVideography2141, who specializes in filming weddings. In it, they show the wedding photographer directing a group for photos, trying to ensure the bride and groom take center stage. The only problem is that she manages to call the bride Taylor, which is the name of her groom’s ex. It’s not a one time mistake, either. Somehow, she manages the feat on two separate photo ops with the happy couple and their friends and family.

Luckily, the bride seems to take the offence with grace, but the discomfort of everyone in the video is palpable. Although Taylor was apparently the name of another bride she had photographed recently, it’s had some people wonder whether this photographer was enacting the ultimate petty ex’s revenge for the sake of a friend. Whatever the case, it’s the perfect anecdote to use against your hapless spouse even when you’re years into your marriage. Let’s just hope it lasts that long.
