Kyle Rittenhouse:

latest news at page 1:
              more   Arizona State University (ASU) officials say Kyle Rittenhouse may enroll for classes, notwithstanding radical student groups like the ASU Students For Socialism’s vows to demonstrate on campus Wednesday to demand the school prevent him from attending. Rittenhouse, who was recently acquitted of homicide for defending himself, has taken online courses at ASU previously and said after the acquittal that he intends to resume them. Several prominent ASU graduates denounced the protest, and one, State Sen. Kelly Townsend (R-Mesa), pushed ASU for a response. Townsend told The Arizona Sun Times she asked ASU’s President Michael Crowe on Tuesday whether Rittenhouse had been disenrolled. In a more detailed statement than previously offered, ASU responded, “Kyle Rittenhouse did not go through the ASU admissions process, but was enrolled in two publicly available courses for this semester. University records show that he is no longer enrolled, a status precipitated by his own actions.” During an interview with Ashleigh Banfield of NewsNation, Rittenhouse said he had taken a “compassionate withdrawal” from his two online ASU courses because, he said, he was “overwhelmed with...
    Kyle Rittenhouse is no longer enrolled at Arizona State University (ASU), where a mob of left-wing students have called for his expulsion, despite Rittenhouse being acquitted of all charges. “Kyle Rittenhouse has not gone through the ASU admissions process,” a university spokesperson told the New York Post. “University records show that he is not currently enrolled in any classes at ASU.” Rittenhouse was enrolled as an online student at the university, according to a report by Tucson.com. ASU had also confirmed earlier this month that Rittenhouse had been taking classes as an online student for its session starting on October 13, but wasn’t enrolled in its Edson College of Nursing and Health, reported the Post. The news of Rittenhouse no longer being enrolled at ASU comes after a mob of socialist students demanded the school expel the 18-year-old, who they called a racist, “blood-thirsty murderer,” despite the fact that a jury found Rittenhouse acted in self defense. The socialist students then laid out their list of “demands,” which includes expelling Rittenhouse, and for the university to “Release a statement against white supremacy [and] racist murderer Kyle...
    Kyle Rittenhouse has opened up about his trial, revealing that he knew the 'state didn't have a case' against him when 'they put Dominic Black on the stand.'  Rittenhouse, 18, appeared on the Charlie Kirk Show on Tuesday to discuss his infamous case after he was acquitted earlier this month for fatally shooting two men and injuring another at the Kenosha protests.  During the hour-long interview, the teen discussed the risk of taking the stand instead of pleading the Fifth, but explained he 'wanted the world to know who the real Kyle Rittenhouse was.'  He told the conservative host that he had been 'freaking out' during the run up to the trial, despite his remarkably calm composure in court, but he felt the tide turn in his favor when the prosecution called his friend Black - who purchased the AR-15 Rittenhouse used in Kenosha with the teen's money. He explained that he knew then that there wasn't a case against him because the prosecution was banking on Black to 'lie,' he claimed.  Kyle Rittenhouse has opened up about his trial, revealing that...
    Kyle Rittenhouse is no longer enrolled at the Arizona State University (ASU) following student protests demanding his withdrawal from campus despite a jury acquitting him on murder charges earlier this month. The university has confirmed Rittenhouse's decision to leave campus, saying he was only registered part-time last year for a non-degree online course that he did not complete. 'Our records show that he is not currently enrolled,' ASU spokesperson Jay Thorne said in a statement to The Arizona Republic, adding that the decision taken by Rittenhouse was not a result of any action taken by the university against him.   A spokesperson for Arizona State University told Dailymail.com that Rittenhouse has 'not gone through the ASU admissions procession. University records show that he is not currently enrolled in any classes at ASU.'  Scroll down for video   Kyle Rittenhouse, 18, chose not to sign up for classes at Arizona State University amid student protests on his enrollment. Last year, Rittenhouse took a non-degree and online nursing class but did not complete it. Pictured: Rittenhouse during his interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson...
    Fairly even-handed so far — but then things got racial. “But for me, what’s the most appalling thing about this is [Rittenhouse] ran toward the police with his hands up, with a weapon right here, and the police did this — they waved him through," the teacher said in a decidedly exasperated tone. "Seriously, if he was black, would he have been waved through? No goddamn way.” The teacher continued: “That’s what this is about ... it’s about people seeing people differently. There's no way he would've been waved through the police line with a semiautomatic weapon if he was a different race." 'Put your hand down — it’s my turn' Then it appears that the student who's recording the teacher's rant puts his hand up to ask a question or make a point. Image source: YouTube screenshot But the teacher rebuffs him: "Put your hand down. It’s my turn, OK?” The teacher added that Rittenhouse walking past cops was "an example of racism being used as a weapon...
    Kyle Rittenhouse is not currently enrolled in any Arizona State University classes, school officials said this week following demands from students that the administration "withdraw" Rittenhouse from the school.  "Kyle Rittenhouse has not gone through the admissions process with Arizona State University and is not enrolled in the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation. ASU can confirm that Mr. Rittenhouse enrolled as a non-degree seeking ASU Online student for the session that started Oct. 13, 2021, which allows students access to begin taking classes as they prepare to seek admission into a degree program at the university," the university initially said in a statement following Rittenhouse saying in court that he was taking nursing classes at the school.  ARIZONA UNIVERSITY STUDENTS DEMAND ADMINISTRATION TO 'WITHDRAW' KYLE RITTENHOUSE: 'KILLER OFF OUR CAMPUS' Kyle Rittenhouse is not currently enrolled in any Arizona State University classes, according to school officials (Sean Krajacic-Pool/Getty Images) The administration released another statement on Monday explaining that the 18-year-old is not enrolled in any classes at the school.  "Kyle Rittenhouse has not gone through the ASU...

              more   Several groups at Arizona State University (ASU) are set to protest the online enrollment of Kyle Rittenhouse Wednesday, but the school says he is not a student there. “Kyle Rittenhouse has not gone through the ASU admissions process,” ASU told The Arizona Sun Times by email. “He is not currently enrolled in any classes at ASU.” During his high-profile trial, Rittenhouse testified that he was taking online courses at the school. At the time, ASU confirmed that statement. But it also said at the time that the program in which Rittenhouse is enrolled “allows students access to begin taking classes as they prepare to seek admission into a degree program at the university.” Meanwhile, left-wing students on the campus are planning to rally against him. “Join us and rally against racist murderer Kyle Rittenhouse being permitted on our campus – Wednesday at 3:30 outside the Nelson Fine Arts Center on campus,” ASU’s chapter of Students for Socialism said on Twitter.

    Oklahoma state Sen. Nathan Dahm (R) filed “Kyle’s Law” last week to shield state residents from politically-driven prosecution in situations where they act in self-defense. FOX23 reports the legislation, Senate Bill 1120, is designed to prevent residents from being forced to endure trials that are conducted for “political reasons.” Sen. Dahm noted if SB1120 becomes law it would also guarantee that “victims of malicious prosecution would be able to receive compensation for expenses and damages.” Dahm’s legislation is in response to the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, the individual who two and killed two people–Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum–and wounded a third, Gaige Grosskreutz, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on August 25, 2020. Rittenhouse claimed self-defense and the jury agree with him, acquitting him of all charges on November 19, 2021. The trial was arduous on Rittenhouse, to say the least, and Sen. Dahm responded in a press release, saying, “Kyle Rittenhouse should never have been charged.” He then transitioned to SB1120, adding, “It is our duty to protect the rights of the people we represent, and the right to self-defense is paramount. This...

    THE ACQUITTAL of Kyle Rittenhouse continues to be met with a mixture of acclaim and criticism. The students at Arizona State University are no exception and have called for a complete dismissal of Rittenhouse's attendance. 2After being found 'not guilty' of all charges, Kyle Rittenhouse plans to attend Arizona State UniversityCredit: Twitter Is Kyle Rittenhouse attending Arizona State University? On Friday, November 19 of 2021, Wisconsin teen Kyle Rittenhouse was exonerated of all charges during his homicide trial. Rittenhouse was facing a total of five charges following his involvement in a Kenosha, Wisconsin protest due to the police shooting of Jacob Blake. The August 25, 2020 protest in Kenosha led to the fatal shooting of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and the wounding of Gaige Krosskreutz. Following the dismissal of all charges brought against him, Rittenhouse discussed his plans to move on during an interview with Tucker Carlson.

    KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — When he was acquitted of murder in shootings during unrest in Wisconsin, Kyle Rittenhouse went from staring at possible life behind bars to red-hot star of the right: an exclusive interview with Tucker Carlson and a visit with Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago capped by a photo of both men smiling and snapping a thumbs-up. For Rittenhouse, a year of legal uncertainty over whether his claim of self-defense would stand up has given way to uncertainty over what’s next. He told Carlson, in an appearance that spiked the host’s ratings by some 40%, that he hoped to become a nurse or maybe even a lawyer. He planned to “lay low” but would for sure leave the Midwest.

    Arizona State University students have called for Kyle Rittenhouse to be expelled from the online nursing classes he has been taking, a week after the 18-year-old was acquitted of charges that stemmed from when he was in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Aug. 25 last year during riots in the aftermath of Jacob Blake, a Black man shot by a White police officer.

    Only in the bizarre, upside-down world that is the modern media landscape could a trial over the shooting of three white men by another white man become a referendum on racial justice. Corporate American media managed to pull off exactly that feat in the case of Kyle Rittenhouse, convincing vast swathes of America that Rittenhouse had shot black men, that he was a card-carrying white supremacist or that he fired indiscriminately into a crowd of unsuspecting peaceful protesters. When Rittenhouse was found not guilty by a jury of his peers after weeks of tense arguments and deliberations in the courtroom, reaction was divided largely along the lines of media consumption habits. Those who read and watched non-partisan, independent or right-of-center media were largely unsurprised after seeing the facts of the case presented during the trial. Many of those who keep up with the news via corporate media and progressive sources were, by contrast, shocked and appalled. How could such a blatant white supremacist murder go unpunished? Was it a corrupt judge who honored veterans in the courtroom at fault? Was...

    Woke students at Arizona State University have demanded that 'blood-thirsty' Kyle Rittenhouse be booted from the college after he was acquitted of murder. Rittenhouse, 18, was cleared after shooting dead two white men and wounding a third at a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020. He revealed during his testimony earlier this month that he was an ASU student. The university have since confirmed he is enrolled as an online student - a position he could have kept even if he was convicted, because criminal background checks are not required to take online classes.

Following the news that the teenager was acquitted, the two companies sent out memos telling their employees that counselling was available, with Levis offering sessions with a 'racial trauma specialist' to 'encourage healing.' Best Buy meanwhile sent a memo from the company's Chief Inclusion, Diversity & Talent Officer Mark Irvin, who encouraged those affected to 'take advantage of our mental health services, including the Life Solutions counselling services.'  However, people took social media to slam the companies and their woke response to the ruling, with some threatening to boycott their stores and cancel orders.

    Following the jury's acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse , the teenager who beat felony homicide charges over the deaths of two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin , legal analysts contend any follow-up civil rights case "will fail" if prosecutors push for one. The verdict prompted a condemning response from the likes of House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, who tweeted Nov. 19 that the full acquittal was a "miscarriage of justice" that "justifies federal review" by the Department of Justice . However, legal analyst and Cornell Law School professor William Jacobson told the Washington Examiner the self-defense evidence in Rittenhouse's criminal case "will be just as overwhelming in a civil case." "There is no obvious basis for a civil rights prosecution against Rittenhouse," said Jacobson, who is also the founder of the Legal Insurrection blog and followed the trial daily. "The videos are the videos, and the testimony already is under oath from witnesses and alleged victim Gaige Grosskreutz. A civil case will fail even by a preponderance of the evidence," Jacobson added. ACQUITTAL COULD SPUR KYLE RITTENHOUSE TO LAUNCH A FLURRY...

    Kyle Rittenhouse enters the courtroom at the Kenosha County Courthouse in Kenosha, Wis., on Monday, Nov. 8, 2021.Sean Krajacic | Pool | Reuters Since he was acquitted of homicide and other charges last Friday, Kyle Rittenhouse has said he wanted to stay out of politics, and that he was disturbed by how his case became politicized. "How polarized it became is absolutely sickening: Right or left, people using me for a cause that should never have been used as a cause," the 18-year-old said earlier this week.  Yet Rittenhouse, who argued he was acting in self defense when he fatally shot two people during protests last year in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has emerged as a symbolic figure for the pro-Trump right wing as the former president considers running again and wields power by issuing endorsements in various Republican primary races.  Some prominent conservatives have worked to make a hero out of Rittenhouse, who was armed with an AR-15-style rifle on the streets of Kenosha during protests that sprung up after the police shooting of Black man Jacob Blake. Rittenhouse made the comments...
    Following his acquittal on homicide and attempted homicide charges, teenage vigilante Kyle Rittenhouse insisted he has no desire to become more involved in politics. But in an article published by Vanity Fair on November 24, journalist Eric Lutz stresses that for someone who wants to keep his political involvement to a bare minimum, the 18-year-old Rittenhouse certainly isn’t shy about talking to prominent MAGA Republicans — including former President Donald Trump and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. Rittenhouse has received nonstop praise from the MAGA far right for his actions in August 2020, when the Illinois resident traveled to a racial justice protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin armed with an AR-15-style weapon. Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot three pro-Black Lives Matter protesters (two of them fatally). During his trial, Rittenhouse maintained that he acted in self-defense — and the jury returned a “not guilty” verdict on all charges. Interviewed by television journalist Ashleigh Banfield for NewsNation on November 24, Rittenhouse insisted that he does not “want to get involved in politics at all” and...
    FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami/CNN) – Former President Donald Trump said he was recently visited by Kyle Rittenhouse at his Mar-a-Lago resort. “He called.

              moreby Kyle Shideler   The conclusion of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, in which the 18-year-old was found not guilty of murder or assault in the shootings of three rioters in the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, reflects a widening gap in how Americans conceive of justice and self-defense. For those cheering Rittenhouse’s exoneration, the case was a prototypical demonstration of rights and obligations of republican citizenship. A lawfully armed Rittenhouse joined with neighbors, in the absence of effective governance, to protect lives and property by putting out fires, cleaning up damage, and offering medical assistance to the injured. When he was directly assaulted for engaging in this activity, Rittenhouse defended himself, harming no one who had not directly placed him under reasonable fear for his life. In contrast, Rittenhouse’s opponents have a radically different conception of self-defense in which it is his assailants, Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber, and Gaige Grosskreutz, whose behavior was not only justifiable but righteous and worthy of celebration. As I have previously written, this view is sometimes termed “community self-defense,” in which upholding the demands of oppressed minority groups, and...

Rittenhouse, who protected the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020.” To be successful, Congressional Gold Medal requests need to be co-sponsored by two-thirds in both chambers of...
    Teenage vigilante Kyle Rittenhouse, recently acquitted on homicide and attempted homicide charges, is being exalted as a hero by far-right MAGA Republicans —some of whom are offering him internships. Steve Benen, a producer for "The Rachel Maddow Show" who frequently writes for Maddow's MaddowBlog on MSNBC's website, weighs in on these internship offers in an op-ed published on November 24 and describes some ways in which they are becoming "increasingly bizarre." Rittenhouse, now 18, was only 17 when he went to a racial justice demonstration in August 2020 in Kenosha, Wisconsin carrying an AR-15-style weapon. And shot three Black Lives Matters supporters, two of them fatally. Rittenhouse, during his trial, insisted that he acted in self-defense, and the jury voted "not guilty" on the charges he was facing. Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina and Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida are among the far-right MAGA Republicans who have offered Rittenhouse internships. "As Kyle Rittenhouse's trial unfolded," Benen observes, "a variety of Republican officials and candidates saw a political opportunity to exploit. The defendant, charged in the fatal shooting...
    Jeans-maker Levi's has offered woke counselling from a 'racial trauma specialist' to 'encourage healing' after Kyle Rittenhouse was cleared of murder. Levi's chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer, Elizabeth Morrison, sent a letter to staff that began: 'With the news that Kyle Rittenhouse was not convicted in the shooting of three individuals – two of whom lost their lives – during racial justice protests last year, this is a difficult day for many.' Morrison offered 24-hour mental health care for those suffering the 'pain and trauma of race, identity and belief-based tragedies.' She added: 'To help promote safety, sharing and to encourage healing, I'll be hosting a fireside chat and Q&A with Dr. Jamila Codrington, a licensed psychologist and racial trauma specialist in early December.' Rittenhouse, 18, was cleared of all charges, including first-degree intentional homicide, last Friday after he shot dead two white men and wounded a third during Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020. Levi's chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer, Elizabeth Morrison (left) and 'racial trauma specialist' Dr. Jamila Codrington (right) Kyle Rittenhouse broke down...
    Kyle Rittenhouse liked the policies of Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, he has revealed - describing him as 'a good dude' - but said he went to a Trump rally because he knew the former president backed the police. Rittenhouse, 18, spoke to Fox News host Tucker Carlson for an interview on Sunday, the majority of which was broadcast during primetime on Monday. Rittenhouse was acquitted on Friday by a court in Wisconsin for his shooting dead of two protesters in August 2020, during Black Lives Matter riots in the city of Kenosha.  On Wednesday, the channel aired more footage from Carlson's interview with the teenager, during which the two discussed politics.   He said he was 'not a political person' but had watched Yang's campaign with interest as he ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in early 2020. 'I was a pretty big Andrew Yang supporter before all this,' Rittenhouse said. 'I was part of the Yang gang. He's a good dude.' Scroll down for video Kyle Rittenhouse told Tucker Carlson, in a clip from their interview aired on Wednesday night,...
    The strangest thing about Donald Trump and the GOP's increasingly open embrace of political violence is how unnecessary it is, even by the right's own grotesque standards. Ever since Trump's failed coup that culminated in the January 6 insurrection, Republicans have been carefully laying the groundwork for a bloodless destruction of democracy. They've commandeered election offices and filled them with Trump lackeys eager to break the law for their leader. They've gerrymandered elections so that Republicans "win" even when Democrats have strong majorities. And they toss on a robust amount of voter suppression so Democrats can't get to the polls in the first place. Even Trump's path to retaking the White House despite quite likely losing in 2024 is laid out without the need to fire a single gunshot: Republican-controlled state legislatures and Congress could nullify the vote in districts Joe Biden wins and throw the election to Trump. "Democracy's primary assailants today are not generals or armed revolutionaries," Harvard political scientists Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt explained in The Atlantic, but rather politicians "who eviscerate democracy's substance behind...
    Kyle Rittenhouse spoke with Tucker Carlson about politics in their lengthy interview and why he liked both Donald Trump and Andrew Yang. Rittenhouse recently met with Trump after being found not guilty. In a new clip from the interview shared on Wednesday night, Rittenhouse said the message he gets from the media coverage is “they are saying you can go out and rioted and attacked anybody and you will have the support from the media and the politicians to do whatever you want and kill innocent people.” Carlson moved on to ask if Rittenhouse had any previous interest in politics. “I’m going to get a lot of hate for this,” Rittenhouse said, “but I was a pretty big Andrew Yang supporter before all this.” “Were you really?” Carlson asked with a laugh. “You were part of the Yang Gang?” “I was part of the Yang Gang,” Rittenhouse said. “He’s a good dude.” “I wasn’t really into politics. I didn’t know much about Trump. I didn’t know much about Biden. I went to a Trump rally because Trump supports the police....
    Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., challenged Rep. Madison Cawthorn to "a sprint" over who would get to hire Kyle Rittenhouse as a congressional intern. "Now I do have some colleagues on the Hill who have, just like me, offered Kyle Rittenhouse an internship in their office," she told Newsmax host Sebastian Gorka, a former aide to Donald Trump, during a Tuesday interview. "And Madison Cawthorn, he said that he would arm wrestle me for this Kyle Rittenhouse internship. But Madison Cawthorn has some pretty big guns, and so I would like to challenge him to a sprint instead." "Let's make this fair," she said of a race against Cawthorn, who uses a wheelchair. "Allow me to arm wrestle him on your behalf," Gorka responded. "I love a good arm wrestle and I would be happy – Madison's a buddy – I'd be happy to arm wrestle him on your behalf." Last week, Rittenhouse was acquitted of murder charges in a weeks-long jury trial over his shooting of three men during the Kenosha unrest in Wisconsin last year. Immediately following...
    CHICAGO (WLS) -- It is a contrast of cases: Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia and Kyle Rittenhouse in Wisconsin.RELATED | Ahmaud Arbery verdict: 3 Georgia men guilty on murder charges Prosecutors in Georgia and in Wisconsin both used show-and-tell techniques, displaying the guns that were fired with deadly results. Both prosecutors made nearly identical arguments against self-defense. But in the Georgia case against three men, the verdicts were nearly all guilty and in Kyle Rittenhouse's Wisconsin case, the verdict was not guilty. The question is why?RELATED | Kyle Rittenhouse trial: Jury reaches not guilty verdict in Kenosha shooting case"I think the short answer as to why there were different outcomes is what the video showed in each case," ABC 7 legal analyst Gil Soffer told the I-Team. "And the testimony in Rittenhouse, it was Rosenbaum principally who chased Rittenhouse, and Rittenhouse then back on his heels firing his weapon. And the Georgia case, it was clearly these defendants who gave chase and who forced the issue and who provoked the outcome. So, the facts were simply different on the core question...
    In the aftermath of last week's verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, some commentators saw the acquittal of a white Illinois teenager as an indictment of America. 'There's a two-tiered system here, where [black Americans] don't have the right to self-defense, in the same way [as white Americans],' CNN political commentator Van Jones said on Cuomo Prime Time on November 22.  'I don't have a Second Amendment right, in the same way.'  Jones claimed to be giving voice to a 'pain' in the black and progressive communities that apparently believe America's laws are not applied equally. 'There's still pain here about the sense of difference,' continued Jones. 'We don't have the right to self-defense and Second Amendment in the same way that others do.' Over the last six days, there have been three different murder cases that provide data points to help evaluate these concerns over the fair application of self-defense laws in American courtrooms.  3 CASES, 3 DIFFERENT OUTCOMES: (Left) Travis McMichael was found guilty for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery. (Center) Andrew Coffee IV was acquitted on felony murder and attempted...
    An Oklahoma state senator filed a bill on Tuesday dubbed “Kyle’s Law,” inspired by the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, to protect Oklahomans who exercise their right of self-defense from facing trial for “political reasons.” State Sen. Nathan Dahm (R-Broken Arrow) said the legislation, also called Senate Bill 1120, is designed to ensure “victims of malicious prosecution” are able to receive compensation for expenses and damages. Should the bill become law, if a person charged with murder is found not guilty due to justifiable homicide, the state would have to reimburse that person for all reasonable costs “including loss of wages, legal fees incurred, and other expenses involved in their defense.” The statement continues in part: When a homicide is determined to be justified and the accused establishes that they had sustained injury due to malicious prosecution, then that person will be awarded “fair and just compensation.” SB 1120 further states that in order to support a claim of malicious prosecution, the claimant must establish that the prosecution was instituted or instigated by the prosecutor and was without probable cause; that the...
    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is sponsoring a bill to grant Kyle Rittenhouse the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest honor the legislative branch can bestow. The Georgia Republican introduced the bill Tuesday following Rittenhouse's acquittal of all charges in the killing of two men during riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year. The bill's summary says the legislation will "award a Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle H. Rittenhouse, who protected the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020." KENTUCKY LIQUOR COMPANY 'DISHEARTENED' CUSTOMERS BUYING RITTENHOUSE WHISKEY TO CELEBRATE VERDICT The bill likely won't succeed, as it would need the support of two-thirds of both chambers of Congress, which are controlled by Democrats. Many Democrats expressed disappointment in the not-guilty verdict while some Republicans, including Greene, celebrated the teenager's acquittal.

    Alex Wong/Getty Images Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R- GA) wants to give Congress’ highest honor to Kyle Rittenhouse. The House of Representatives has voted many times to honor Americans with Congressional Gold Medals. This year alone the award was given to law enforcement officers who responded to the January 6 riots and posthumously to the 13 U.S. service members who were killed in Afghanistan in August. And now Greene has introduced a bill to bestow that honor upon Rittenhouse. Rittenhouse was found not guilty last week on all charges after his lawyers argued he shot three individuals — two fatally — in self-defense. Some commentators have expressed that while Rittenhouse did have a reasonable claim of self-defense, his actions should not be lauded or viewed as heroic. A summary of Greene’s legislation reads that the intent is “to award a Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle H. Rittenhouse, who protected the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020.” Several Republican members of Congress have praised Rittenhouse, with some even openly vying to hire him...
    Sometimes, it ain’t worth the whiskey. Following the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, a company told its customers that the ‘Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey’ should not be used to celebrate the verdict. Heaven Hill Brands tweeted Sunday that they were “disheartened to learn that some individuals and businesses have been using our Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey brand to celebrate the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict, despite the profound loss of life from those events.” 1/3 We have been disheartened to learn that some individuals and businesses have been using our Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey brand to celebrate the Kyle Rittenhouse case verdict, despite the profound loss of life from those events. — Heaven Hill Brands (@heavenhill) November 21, 2021 “There is no link between our Rittenhouse Rye brand, which was started post-prohibition to commemorate Rittenhouse Square, and this case,” the company continued. “It is our strongly held belief that in serious matters such as this, where lives were lost and people deeply affected, there is no cause for celebration, but instead deep reflection on how we can make the world a more peaceful...
              more   Staff at the Metro Nashville Health Department on Wednesday confirmed that its Director of Health Equity Stephanie Kang told department employees via email that the not guilty verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial was an injustice. Metro Nashville Health Department spokesman Brian Todd told The Tennessee Star that the email, which WTN host Brian Wilson read on his radio show Tuesday, was authentic. Kang, in the email, described Rittenhouse as “a young white man who shot and killed two people and wounded one other.” Of the not-guilty verdict, Kang wrote: We recognize that these injustices can cause distress and harm for BIPOC communities and exacerbate trauma instilled daily through acts of racism and the pervasiveness of white supremacy and oppression. We must move forward collectively to disrupt systemic racism and reaffirm our shared values of equity and inclusion publicly and through practice. MPHD is committed to providing a space for healing for anyone struggling to process, experiencing distress, and/or needs additional resources to support their colleagues.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced a bill on Wednesday that would award Kyle Rittenhouse the congressional gold medal for 'protecting the community of Kenosha'. The jury in Rittenhouse's case found the 18-year-old innocent on all counts after he shot three people – killing two – in self defense during a Black Lives Matter riot in Wisconsin last year. The text of the HR6070 reads it is intended '[t]o award a Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle H. Rittenhouse, who protected the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020.'  If awarded, which there is little chance, this would give Rittenhouse the same medal as the cops who protected the Capitol during the January 6 attack and the troops killed in Kabul. The ruling in Rittenhouse's case was highly controversial as progressives deem it proof the criminal justice system is racist and favors white people.  Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced legislation that, if passed, would aware Kyle Rittenhouse with the Congressional Gold Medal Greene posted a tweet with an image of Rittenhouse saying she 'greatly admires'...
    Kyle Rittenhouse’s conduct on August 25, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was “textbook perfect,” Jonathan Gilliam, retired Navy SEAL, former FBI agent, and author of Sheep No More: The Art of Awareness and Attack Survival, said on Wednesday’s edition of the Breitbart News Daily podcast with host Alex Marlow. Gilliam stated, “When he had his weapon and he was confronted by these imminent threats of loss of life or serious bodily injury, he engaged in a proper manner to eliminate the threat. You didn’t see him out there hammering people down, mowing people down. It’s when the threat got too close and it posed an imminent threat … he took action.” Rittenhouse was not “praying and spraying in a total reaction,” Gilliam added. “If you look at who these people were that he actually shot, and what their actions were, and how he was trying to get away, and they came after him, everything he did was textbook perfect.” “Even when he was on the ground, he was not engaging people unless they engaged him,” he remarked. “It was perfect.” Rittenhouse’s control of...
    Heaven Hill Brands, a large company behind several well-known spirits, went full woke this week, expressing disappointment upon learning that some customers were using its Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey to celebrate the not guilty verdict of 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse. “We have been disheartened to learn that some individuals and businesses have been using our Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey brand to celebrate the Kyle Rittenhouse case verdict, despite the profound loss of life from those events,” Heaven Hill Brands said on social media this week, referencing Joseph Rosenbaum, a pedophile sex offender, and Anthony Huber, who pled guilty to charges of strangulation, suffocation, and domestic abuse; both men were fatally shot by Rittenhouse in self-defense. “There is no link between our Rittenhouse Rye brand, which was started post-prohibition to commemorate Rittenhouse Square, and this case,” the company assured. “It is our strongly held belief that in serious matters such as this, where lives were lost and people deeply affected, there is no cause for celebration, but instead deep reflection on how we can make the world a more peaceful and respectful place...
    With Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal, one of the most embarrassing chapters in the history of American criminal justice has come to a close. The case should have never been brought by the prosecutor in the first place, yet there’s an American institution that performed even more shamefully than the criminal justice system — the corporate media. From the president of the United States to our leading media figures, Kyle Rittenhouse has been lied about, attacked and slandered for more than a year. And the spectacle reveals a “free press” in the United States that believes itself free to lie about, cheat and harass a child. We should take lessons from this, and learn from them. What’s so unusual about Rittenhouse’s case is that the video evidence was clear immediately. We saw looters burning the streets of Kenosha. We saw Rittenhouse walking the streets of Kenosha. We heard the verbal threats against him and saw him run away. We saw grown men threaten to pummel him as he lay on the ground. We saw one of them raise a pistol in his...
