Who saw this coming? Andrew Yang is the dark horse candidate for 2020 and the internet loves him. Hell, as a left of center libertarian – I love him. Though the mainstream media is doing their best to keep him in the dark, Yang is gaining clout and credibility every day.

A federal grand jury has indicted former Baltimore Sergeant Keith Gladstone. Charges in the February 28th indictment that were unsealed at Tuesdays trial include: conspiracy to deprive civil rights, conspiracy to commit offence against the United States, and also witness tampering.
Gladstone planted a BB-gun at the scene of a drug bust, according to accusations. The same scene where an officer ran down a suspect with his vehicle in march, 2014. The offending officer, Wayne Jenkins, than called sergeant Gladstone and reportedly ordered him to plant the phony firearm. Baltimore charged the suspect with both drug possession and possession of an illegal weapon.
HR 8, a bill greatly expanding federal background checks coasted through a Democrat-controlled house the morning of February 27th, 2019. The bill also had eight Republican signatures on it, five of whom were co-sponsors. Democrats and gun control advocates describe this as a major victory and “the most significant gun control measure in two decades”.
It is unlikely that the bill will pass through the Senate. If the unlikely occurs, President Trump has publicly expressed that a veto would come from his office.
