Man Accused Of Murdering 18-Year-Old Conservative Released On Bail

A 41-year-old man accused of murdering 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson for being a supposed “Republican extremist” was released on $50,000 bail Tuesday from the Stutsman County jail in North Dakota.

According to the NY Post, Sannon Brandt spent just days in lockup after he was arrested in connection with the death of Ellingson – who Brandt initially told first responders that “he struck the pedestrian because the pedestrian was threatening him,” according to a probable-cause affidavit provided to Fox News Digital Wednesday morning.

Ellingson was walking on the street shortly before 3am following a weekend street dance in Foster County when he was struck with a pickup truck, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol. He was rushed to Carrington Hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

“Brandt stated that the pedestrian called some people and Brandt was afraid they were coming to get him,” the document continues. “Brandt admitted to State Radio that he hit the pedestrian and that the pedestrian was part of a Republican extremist group.”

North Dakota Highway Patrol reported on Sunday that there was a “street dance” on Jones Street near Hohneck Street in McHenry when Brandt struck Ellingson and then fled the scene.

Ellingson was rushed to a local hospital with serious injuries, but could not be saved. 

Brandt’s and Ellingson’s families both showed up at the scene shortly after police arrived, court records show. 

Ellingson’s parents later told police they knew Brandt, but they did not believe their son did. Ellingston’s mother described how she was on her way to pick up her son from McHenry when he called her and said “that ‘he’ or ‘they’ were chasing him.” She could no longer reach him after that. -NY Post

Brandt was arrested early Saturday morning in his Glenfield home after police stopped him outside. He “admitted to consuming alcohol prior to the incident,” according to the records.

“Brandt admitted to striking the pedestrian with his car because he had a political argument with the pedestrian and believed the pedestrian was calling people to come get him,” the court document continues. “Brandt admitted to leaving the scene of the incident and returning shortly after where he called 911.”

Brandt allegedly admitted to fatally hitting a teenage pedestrian with his car.

Brandt had a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit of 0.08, and was charged with criminal vehicular homicide. While he was charged with driving under the influence according to jail records, a criminal complaint did not include the charge, the Post reports.

McCarthy Says GOP Will Not ‘Go After People Simply Because of Their Political Views’

Says Nick Fuentes Must Be Banned From GOP For His Political Views

Published

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said during a press conference on Tuesday that Christian conservative Nick Fuentes “has no place” in the Republican Party and his ideology “has no place in society at all” just minutes before claiming the GOP will not “go after people simply because of their political views” when they take back power.

“I don’t think anybody should be spending any time with Nick Fuentes,” McCarthy told the press, referencing Trump’s dinner with Ye and Fuentes. “He has no place in this Republican Party.”

“I condemn his ideology,” McCarthy said, “it has no place in society — at all!”

Minutes later, McCarthy was asked: “What do you make of the White House saying they are ‘keeping an eye on’ Twitter under Elon Musk’s ownership and leadership?”

“That is offensive to me,” McCarthy responded. “Government’s gonna go after someone who wants to have free speech? What do they have to look at Twitter about? Do they want to go more after the American public about whether they can have an opinion on something?”

“I think the American public have spoken on this. I think our First Amendment stands up and I think they should stop picking on Elon Musk,” he continued. “You know, Elon Musk has succeeded in many places. I’d bet on him more than government going after him. And I one thing I would say when we talked about accountability, we will no longer let government go after people simply because of their political views.”

Just over a week ago, McCarthy vowed to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee because she criticized Israel in the past.

In 2019, McCarthy voted to strip Rep. Steve King (R-IA) from all committees over his political views defending white people and Western civilization.

McCarthy is also a champion of anti-BDS laws which punish Americans for boycotting the foreign state of Israel and blatantly violate the First Amendment.

Despite McCarthy’s claim that the GOP “will no longer let government go after people simply because of their political views,” the truth is he’s eager to use state power to punish Americans for their political views, place them on blacklists and ban them from the political process if they dare to criticize Israel!

Video: Sam Harris Claims It Was An “Accident” That NY Post Was Right About Hunter Biden Laptop

He previously admitted he ‘wouldn’t have cared if Hunter Biden had corpses of children in his basement’

Lefty ‘philosopher’ Sam Harris, who previously admitted he supported the suppression of reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop immediately prior to the election, has now claimed that the New York Post’s reporting on the story was accurate only “by accident.”

Speaking with Bill Maher on his podcast, Harris declared that the reaction to him saying he wouldn’t have cared if Hunter Biden had corpses of children in his basement was “right wing lunacy,” and that it “kind of distorted my position.”

Harris further declared that “the velocity of the hatred was something new,” and claimed that “it was completely plausible to worry that this was a fake story… there simply wasn’t enough time to get to the bottom of it.”

Maher challenged him on the suppression of the laptop story, noting “Well then why did the outlets that did get to the bottom of it, get to it? The New York Post had no problem getting to the bottom of it.”

Harris replied, “They wanted to believe it and yes, you know, sometimes you’re right by accident.”

Maher responded, “Can I go to step two of what the two reasonable people in the room would agree on. One, they’d agree it was kind of suppressed. Two, they’d agree that Hunter Biden, being the son of the current Vice President, and being a complete douchebag, was ripe to be used as a conduit to his father, through which he was, but nothing really. It was kind of sort of everyday graft, that’s sleazy, but doesn’t affect the world.”

“It’s possible we still don’t know, right,” Harris replied, adding “I’ll give some credence to the possibility that it’s worse than I understand. But the problem is ten days is not enough to figure that out and we knew that it was going to rail the issue.”

Harris then attempted to steer the conversation to Trump and his administration being more corrupt than Biden.

Watch:

The New York Post story on the Hunter Biden laptop was censored on Twitter and other platforms and labelled ‘Russian disinformation‘ in a chilling example of election meddling fewer than 3 weeks before the vote that saw Biden take the White House.

It has since been proven that the story is completely accurate, with  journalists such as Glenn Greenwald describing the cover up as “the single biggest media fraud” in the past decade.

Harris put himself in the spotlight again this week by criticising Elon Musk’s attempts to restore free speech on Twitter:

    Howls Of Outrage After New York Times Confirms SBF To Speak Alongside Zelenskyy, Yellen

    Published

    on

    As we discussed last night, Sam Bankman-Fried has now demonstrated that he is both a pathological liar and a sociopath, the kind who in “explaining” to his employees how he stole billions (over $4 billion according to new FTX CEO John J. Ray) from the now bankrupt FTX, an act which left it insolvent and without liquidity, called it “loans” which were “generally” not used for “large amounts of personal consumption” (just “small amounts” used for such trivial items as $40 million penthouses and private jets).

    And the only reason we don’t officially call him a criminal just yet, is because he has not yet confirmed he used client money from his exchange to fund his personal hedge fund, an act which would cost any other individual decades in jail… but not prominent democrats like SBF or Jon Corzine, of course. Plus it’s the US legal system’s job to do that, not ours. Although we are growing increasingly skeptical this prominent Democratic donor will ever see the inside of a courtroom.

    It’s not just us: with much of the entire world demanding to know how this corpulent 30-year-old still has not been thrown in prison, or at least charged with a variety of crimes, the NYT just confirmed to the entire world what a farce the one-time paper of record has become, and how it is willing to whore itself out for clicks – not to mention prominent Democrat donors – because moments after SBF tweeted that he will be speaking with Andrew Ross-Sorkin moderated NYT “summit” on Nov 30…

    … Sorkin quickly confirmed as much.

    And so, instead of being under arrest, SBF will instead be treated like a luminary alongside other such other Democrat icons as Zelenskyy (who according to some may have been intimately familiar with FTX fund flows in the past year) and of course the woman who along with Ben Bernanke and Jerome Powell, made it all possible by blowing the biggest asset bubble of all time: Janet Yellen.

    And while we are certain that the NYT – which we assume is done writing puff pieces on behalf of SBF after it became a laughing stock last week – would be quick to mercilessly cancel and expel from its “prestigious” conference anyone who had misgendered some post-op transsexual, it is willing to give this thieving pathological liar and sociopath a forum in which to profess his innocence to the entire world, and by association with other Democrat “celebrities” such as Bill Clinton.

    …  to boost his standing within a legal system that is clearly as much as joke as the venue that he will be sharing with the following individuals:

    Here are all the other “top business and policy leaders” at the NYT whitewashing summit:

    • Eric Adams, New York City mayor
    • Ben Affleck, Artists Equity C.E.O.
    • Sam Bankman-Fried, FTX founder
    • Gerry Cardinale, RedBird Capital Partners founder, managing partner and C.I.O.
    • Shou Chew, TikTok C.E.O.
    • Larry Fink, BlackRock chairman and C.E.O.
    • Reed Hastings, Netflix founder and co-C.E.O.
    • Andy Jassy, Amazon president and C.E.O.
    • Van Jones, CNN host, author and Dream.Org founder
    • Scarlett Lewis, Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement founder and mother of Sandy Hook shooting victim, Jesse
    • Mike Pence, 48th vice president of the United States and author of “So Help Me God”
    • Benjamin Netanyahu, former Prime Minister of Israel, current leader of the Likud party
    • Priscilla Sims Brown, Amalgamated Bank president and C.E.O.
    • Secretary Janet L. Yellen, U.S. Department of the Treasury
    • President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine
    • Mark Zuckerberg, Meta founder, chairman and C.E.O.

    The shocked, stunned and simply disgusted reactions are still coming in:
