“After they left, Ted became very agitated about who called the State Troopers and accused my family of talking to Rolling Stone about his prior domestic violence. He falsely accused me of talking to Rolling Stone. He was verbally abusive and I called State Police.”
[Note: Rolling Stone had previously reported on Teddy Daniels and his history of violence]
“He asked if I was going to file a [protection from abuse order] and I started crying. I started to go to the courthouse and he tried not to let me go. Ted followed me to the courthouse and came into the courthouse.”
She added, “He stalks me at work, screaming at me, making me cry. He cursed at me continually and our son repeats it to me,” she writes. “He has constantly said he would throw myself and our son out of the house and, if he lost the campaign, I wouldn’t have a place to live in three weeks.”
“Ted’s Campaign Manager has called me twelve (12) times to persuade me not to file this PFA. He has threatened to investigate who made wellness calls to the State Police unless I dropped the emergency PFA + didn’t file a temporary PFA.”
“I am afraid of him and what he will do to me and our son. He [threatens] to kill himself,”
“Awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome investigative journalism. You pulled public records. Like, does that impress me? You know, do you think that that’s investigative journalism? You pulled public records. Rolling Stone, take your bullshit and shove it.”
“All of the systems the darkness had in place to control us are going to crumble,” the narrator says, as the video shows a view of outer space. “The fear, the corruption, the greed, the wars and rumors of wars, the hate, the technology, media propaganda, the child trafficking and the slave economy — all of these control systems will crumble down.”Last week in Gettysburg, a far-right Christian conference called “Patriots Arise for God and Country” drew State Sen. Doug Mastriano, a GOP front-runner for Pennsylvania governor; Teddy Daniels, a candidate for lieutenant governor; Maryland gubernatorial candidate Dan Cox; Liz Harrington, a spokesperson for former President Donald Trump; and former Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis.
About 25 minutes into the two-day conference, organizers played a video claiming the world is experiencing a “great awakening” that will expose “ritual child sacrifice” and a “global satanic blood cult.”
Followers of QAnon believe a global cabal of Democrats and elites are trafficking children for sex and engaged in other demonic activity — but that all of this will soon be exposed. Images associated with the conspiracy theory were on display during the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol attack.
The video showed Friday featured a kind of greatest hits of conspiracy theories that have circulated for decades. It showed images of the Twin Towers collapsing on 9/11 — with the label “false flags.” It claimed John F. Kennedy was assassinated because he “knew too much” and posed a “high risk of cabal exposure,” that vaccines amount to “genocide therapy,” and that Hitler faked his death. It offered other conspiracy theories about the atomic bomb, the Spanish flu, 5G, the 2008 financial crisis — and, of course, the 2020 election.
But, the video said, it is “game over” for the darkness, and thousands will be jailed and executed. It showed images of a guillotine.
A new WHTM/Emerson College Polling/The Hill poll shows Doug Mastriano leading the Republican field of candidates for Governor.
Mastriano, a State Senator representing Pennsylvania’s 33rd District, leads with 16.2% over Lou Barletta at 12.4%.
Mastriano and Barletta were the only candidates to receive double-digit support with 48.8% of the 371 Republican voters undecided.
Twelve percent of respondents said they would vote for McSwain if the election were held today, while 15% said they would vote for state Sen. Doug Mastriano.
Mastriano has led efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, while Trump this week asked voters to not elect McSwain, whom Trump called a “coward” who did “absolutely nothing” about disproven claims of widespread election fraud.
“Trump’s slap-down of McSwain certainly won’t help him among Trump voters,” in a state where the former president still has a lot of sway, Yost said.
On Nov. 28, 2020, as most of us were eating Thanksgiving leftovers, Mastriano tweeted a strategy to have the state legislature appoint a pro-Trump slate of electors for Pennsylvania (in other words, to overturn Pennsylvania’s vote based on unsubstantiated voter fraud claims). That tweet has earned Mastriano a subpoena from the committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Speaking of Jan. 6, Mastriano’s campaign spent over $3,300 to send buses of people to Washington, DC on that day. Mastriano was even outside the Capitol. He claims he didn’t cross police lines, but he showed us when he stepped onto one of the buses he paid for that he doesn’t have the judgment to be our governor.
Mastriano also wants to audit Pennsylvania’s 2020 election results. If you want an idea of how this might go, look to Maricopa County, Ariz., where an audit by the crackpot group “the Cyber Ninjas” left county taxpayers on the hook for $3.2 million.
You may be wondering if an audit here in Pennsylvania will turn up reams of previously undisclosed voter fraud.
Don’t get your hopes up. The bogus Maricopa County audit actually grew Joe Biden’s margin by 360 votes.
If Mastriano is concerned about auditing things, I’d suggest he start with his own campaign’s books. His initial campaign finance report disclosed $15,000 in spending, which he revised upward to $215,000. Whoops!
But by all means, let’s let him audit our elections.
Mastriano also wants to cancel state contracts with “compromised voting machine companies,” particularly Dominion Voting Systems. Dominion machines are used in 14 Pennsylvania counties and were the subject of conspiracy theories that they flipped votes to President Biden away from President Trump in the 2020 election.
These claims are not just false. They’re the subject of a defamation lawsuit by Dominion against Fox News and One America News Network—but Mastriano wants to make state policy around them. Not “governor” material if you ask me.
Last but certainly not least, Mastriano wants to appoint a new secretary of the commonwealth. He already pushed a plan to overturn the lawful certified election in Pennsylvania in 2020, and now he wants to sit in the governor’s chair for the 2024 election.
If all of this sounds bad to you, I urge you to take Mastriano seriously. He’s not some gadfly candidate, and he has as good a chance as anyone to win the Republican primary on May 17.
Main battles are taking place south of Izyum, and between Uhledar and Huliapole. Can the Russian army destroy the Donetsk group of the enemy using the existing forces? For me there is no obvious answer. I don’t know what forces are concentrated, what is their moral spirit, how are they equipped and trained, what aviation and artillery support is available.
But in the last three days there was practically zero advancement of the Russian forces north of Izyum, only tactical successes in some places. In the south, we took a few localities but the enemy frontline is not broken through. Witnesses say the artillery and aviation work tremendously, destroying resistance as soon as it emerges. This is WW1 tactic which any way doesn’t lead to any quick results.
As I said earlier time is of the essence for a quick victory of the Ukraine which finishes its 3rd mobilization stage, in total around 300,000 people [...] If Ukraine manages to create 10 divisions, 100,000 troops, or 50 BTGs, then this [...] force will be capable of of cardinally reversing the course of the combat action [...]
So I believe if the operations drags down, if the Ukrainian forces are not destroyed in 1-1.5 months, then the battle could change dramatically, and the enemy will be able to seize the advantage, and it’s possible they will do it.
In conditions were Russian troops will have to storm one city agglomeration after another, number of troops comes to the foreground. And in this regard, neither [Russian] nor [separatist forces] have a serious advantage, unfortunately.
Let’s imagine that the first line of defense of [Ukrainian armed forces] south of Izyum and near Hulliapole is broken and our forces begin offensive in convergent directions, can they quickly link up in deep Ukrainian rears, creating two encirclement rings (inner and outer)? With a guarantee that the enemy won’t break them immediately and won’t create their own ‘salients’ for the advancing forces? [...]
I doubt it. Why? Because for that you need A LOT of detachments aimed not only for breaking through but also for firmly establishing in the territories [...]
So, after a certain time, in this area, the same situation will repeat as in Rubezhnoe-Severodonetsk, Popasnaya, Avdeevka and Maryanka, where united forces are advancing extremely slowly and with huge losses (especially among the infantry), or not moving at all (Avdeevka).
By mid-April there were a couple of men left of our "pre-war" company [150 troops in an infantry company] . Volunteers and reservists were already being sent to the battle. Volunteers in masses were with experience of 2014-2015, but here it is absolutely other war and their experience does not help anything. And the reservists are miners caught on the streets without the slightest experience. Nobody cares. Put your submachine gun in your hands and go forward under the mortars. There was a catastrophic shortage of men, fighters were not allowed to leave the front line for a month or more. Many went nuts from such loads. Some began to drink heavily, fortunately there was no problem with booze at the front. Mathematically there was almost no chance of getting out alive and uninjured. The longer you stay there, the less chance you have. Of those I was friends with or shared bread with, eight people died in a fortnight. The rest were wounded or shell-shocked. Within a week, three company officers had changed - two were killed. There were no company-platoon level officers left at all.
