RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel reelected, vows 2022 GOP comeback
Following a chaotic week in national politics with the deadly Capitol riots and the brutal Georgia runoffs, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel was unanimously reelected Friday for another two years at the top of the Republican Party.
Her reelection comes days after Democrats swept both of Georgia’s U.S. Senate seats in the twin runoff elections this past Tuesday that was a stinging defeat for the GOP. Democrats now hold a razor-thin majority in the upper congressional chamber and have gained the last piece of the trifecta after winning the White House in November and the House back in the 2018 midterm elections.
In a speech at a party gathering in Florida, the former Michigan GOP chairwoman said she was “mad” about their defeat in Georgia and acknowledged that retaking both chambers of Congress in the 2022 midterms will be a challenge, vowing though to work to restore Republican control over the legislative branch during her next term as chair of the RNC.
“We have a lot of hard work to do to take back the Senate and the House in 2022, but I am mad and I’m not going to let socialism rule this country,” McDaniel pledged.
“I’m going to work with every single one of you to make sure we squash it and we take back the House and take back the Senate,” she continued.
“So Democrats, get ready, buckle your seatbelts,” the Michigan Republican added. “We’re coming.”
Notably, McDaniel, a reliable and vocal supporter of President Trump, did not bring up his 2020 presidential election defeat aside from vaguely saying “losing critical elections,” Jonathan Martin of The New York Times reported.
McDaniel first became the RNC chair in 2016, when Trump picked her to replace Reince Priebus, who then served as the president’s chief of staff for some months.
With her reelection also coming in the aftermath of Wednesday’s deadly riot, McDaniel made a point of denouncing the deadly breaching of the U.S. Capitol that resulted in five people dead and many injured, including at least 50 police officers.

“The violence does not represent acts of patriotism, but an attack on our country and its founding principles,” McDaniel said.

Las Vegas Backyard UFO Encounter and Its Connection to Historic UFO Incidents
In a Las Vegas suburb, a family’s experience has put them into the realm of the unexplained. What started as a crashed object in their backyard and sightings of “non-human” beings has now unveiled a captivating connection to two historic UFO incidents—Trinity and Rendlesham Forest.
It was a late April night when the people of Las Vegas witnessed something extraordinary. Multiple witnesses, including law enforcement officers, observed a streak across the sky. Body cam footage from one of the responding police officers displays the spectacle. As reports flooded in from across eastern California, Nevada, and Utah, the American Meteor Society took note, hinting at a spectacle that defied easy explanation.

Responding to the call, two police officers were dispatched to investigate the strange occurrence. The body camera footage obtained from both officers captured their initial reactions, reflecting a mix of nerves and intrigue.
Conversations between officers and witnesses revealed astonishing claims, with one witness describing a “big creature” standing around 10 feet tall.
While one officer proceeded to inspect the backyard, the video footage from his body camera was redacted by Metro police due to privacy concerns, according to reports. Witnesses conveyed their belief in the sighting, despite expressing skepticism before. Simultaneously, another witness informed the police about an SUV circling the area, potentially adding another layer of mystery to the incident, according to reports.
But this was just the beginning.
As the incident unfolded, an web of connections emerged, drawing parallels to historical UFO encounters that have perplexed and fascinated humanity for decades. Among these, the Trinity Incident stands as a testament to the enduring mystery surrounding UFO phenomena.
The Trinity Incident, which transpired in, July 1945, was set against the backdrop of the world’s first atomic bomb test in New Mexico. Witnesses, present during the event, reported a peculiar sighting, a UFO defying the laws of physics, hovering near the blast. The incident became covered in secrecy due to its connection to the classified Manhattan Project. This led to the rise of speculation about extraterrestrial involvement and their interest in our technological advancements.
Fast forward to December 1980, when another chapter in UFO history was written, Rendlesham Forest, an event that unfolded near the RAF Woodbridge base in Suffolk, England. Military personnel stationed there encountered inexplicable lights and an otherworldly craft nestled amidst the forest. The Rendlesham Forest incident remains one of the most compelling UFO cases on record, captivating the world with its documented evidence, eyewitness testimonies, and subsequent investigations.
Now, as the Las Vegas incident captures global attention, trending on Twitter, its connection to these historical encounters become apparent. The connections are astonishing, a crashed object, sightings of strange beings upwards of 10 feet tall, and eyewitnesses who stand by their claims, just as those who witnessed the Trinity Incident and the events in Rendlesham Forest did.
What does this all mean?
In this connection of past and present, the Las Vegas backyard encounter serves as a gateway into the world of UFOs. It calls the worlds to explore the uncharted territories of the unknown, where the boundaries of our understanding are challenged.
As speculation continues to surround this perplexing event, the encounters with unidentified phenomena and the mention of “big creatures” with large gazing eyes, in a suburban backyard have left the community and investigators perplexed. The quest for answers in this unusual case remains ongoing, as locals ponder the possibility of an otherworldly presence.
