Prayers and condolences
We extend our deepest condolences and prayers to the family of Eunice Dwumfour, a young African-American Republican city council member from Sayreville, New Jersey, who was murdered Wednesday night. It’s been reported that she was shot 7 times in the head and 7 more times elsewhere in her vehicle near her home. The FBI is now involved in the investigation. No motive is yet known, but her pastor said he believes from the extreme brutality of the crime that it was a targeted personal attack.
The Jobs Report
Friday, the government reported that the US economy added 517,000 non-farm jobs in January, far more than the average 183,000 predicted by economists. Job creation was so strong that economists are worried that the Fed will continue hiking interest rates to cool the economy down and rein in inflation. But the high jobs number baffled many analysts, considering the obvious problems with the economy. That didn’t stop President Biden from taking credit for it and declaring that his mysterious “economic plan” was responsible for this miraculous level of job creation.
Is Kyle going back to Court?
Kyle Rittenhouse was already famously acquitted on all charges for shooting three protesters and killing two of them during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, because the jury agreed he acted in self-defense to prevent them from killing him. But he may be heading back to court again after a Wisconsin federal judge gave a green light to a civil lawsuit by the father of Anthony Huber, one of his attackers, who claims the city, the police and Rittenhouse are all to blame for creating the situation that led to his son’s wrongful death.
