Missouri Daily Life 68208

Missouri Representative Cori Bush gave a speech on the House floor Thursday where she praised Bassem Masri, a BLM activist who has publicly called for the death of police officers.

In her speech, Bush compared the crisis between Israel and Palestine to the shooting of Michael Brown in 2014, Blaze Media reports.

‘pigs in a blanket fry ’em like bacon,’

Rep. Cori Bush Praised the black Lives Matter Activist that tweeted out Death to cops

“As a Palestinian, he was ready to resist, to rebel, to rise up with us as our St. Louis community mourned Mike Brown, Jr.’s state-sanctioned murder, and as we demanded an end to the militarized police occupation of our communities,” Bush said. “Palestinians know what state violence, militarized policing, and occupation of their communities look like.”

She said Marsi and many others showed up in Ferguson in 2014.

“So when heavily militarized police forces showed up in Ferguson in 2014, Bassem and so many others of our St. Louis Palestinian community, our Palestinian siblings showed up too,” the representative said.

The Blaze reports that Bush yelled “Coward straight pig out here b****! You gotta go. Your life is in danger homie,” to a cop in 2014 and has posted threatening slogans online.

He told officers to their faces that “I’m praying for your death and your death and your death and your death,” the Blaze reports.

The news organization dug up old tweets from the BLM activist.

White House Confirms It Is Looking Into Shutting Down Oil Pipeline Amid Fuel Crisis

Gas Pipeline

The Biden administration confirmed that it is considering shutting down an oil pipeline in Michigan despite the ongoing fuel crisis in the country.

“Revoking the permits for the [Line 5] pipeline that delivers oil from western Canada across Wisconsin, the Great Lakes and Michigan and into Ontario, would please environmentalists who have urged the White House to block fossil fuel infrastructure, but it would aggravate a rift with Canada and could exacerbate a spike in energy prices that Republicans are already using as a political weapon,” Politico Pro reported. “Killing a pipeline while U.S. gasoline prices are the highest in years could be political poison for Biden, who has seen his approval rating crash in recent months.”

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked about the report during Monday’s press briefing, asking, “why is the administration now considering shutting down the Line 5 pipeline from Canada to Michigan?”

“So, Peter, that is inaccurate,” Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed. “That is not right. So, any reporting indicating that some decision has been made, again, is not accurate. … So, again, I would — it is inaccurate what you just stated, but —”

“What’s inaccurate?” Doocy asked.

“The reporting about us wanting to shut down the Line 5,” Jean-Pierre said.

“I didn’t say ‘wanting.’  I said, is it being studied right now?  Is the administration studying the impact of shutting down the Line 5?”

“Yeah. Yes, we are. We are,” Jean-Pierre admitted.

 

The news comes as gas prices have reached their highest since 2014, when Biden was vice president, and are currently about 50% higher than they were when Biden entered office.
