It’s an action that even The Babylon Bee couldn’t make up. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer reacted to the tragic domestic terrorist act in Waukesha, Wisconsin, by Tweeting that his infrastructure bill makes streets safer.
“On this World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, we mourn those we’ve lost. We stand with their families. We recommit to preventing these tragedies. The infrastructure bill we passed provides historic funding to help reshape our streets, make them safer, & save lives.”
Chuck Schumer tweeted this. Incredibly thoughtless given the vehicle attack in Waukesha. He deleted it in minutes. pic.twitter.com/i1pMUzVz80

Obama-era hack Rahm Emanuel once said, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste.” For most of the Democrat Party’s leadership, this can also translate to, “Never let a major tragedy go to waste.”
The dust hasn’t settled and, as always, there are hot takes being tossed out there about this event. In a rare move, I even participated in expressing my own anger towards it before knowing all the facts, but considering the circumstances I allowed emotion to control my fingers. I won’t be deleting these Tweets regardless of the details that come out later.
The difference between these hot takes and what Schumer posted is that we often allow our emotions to guide our actions prematurely. That’s not what Schumer did. He saw an opportunity to promote himself and his accomplishments. He saw a good PR move and acted upon it before someone stepped in and told him it probably wasn’t a good idea. This is how far too many “leaders” on the left think. They see every tragic event as an opportunity they can use to their advantage.
Schumer eventually replaced his self-serving Tweet with this one, though something makes me doubt that this man fell to his knees and prayed to God on their behalf:
We’re praying for the victims of horrific violence at the Waukesha Christmas Parade. https://t.co/4Vg0fOGjjQ

There are no “negative events” in the eyes of Democrat leadership. They only see opportunities to move their authoritarian agenda forward. Chuck Schumer is the Senate’s ultimate tragedy-opportunist.
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
