President Donald Trump’s plans to contest the results of the 2020 election have already gotten off on the wrong foot after it has been revealed that the first witness of alleged vote-counting fraud in Philadelphia is a sex offender who faced jail time after he exposed himself to pre-teen girls.

Daryl Brooks, a conservative activist, told reporters on Saturday that he was watching the polls during a press conference by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani that was bizarrely held at Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Northeast Philadelphia.

“It’s such a shame,” Brooks lamented at the press event. “This is a democracy.”

“They did not allow us to see anything,” he further alleged. “Was it corrupt or not? But give us an opportunity as poll watchers to view all the documents — all of the ballots.”

Brooks spent time in prison during the 1990s on charges of lewdness, sexual assault, and endangering the welfare of a minor after he exposed himself to 2 girls, aged 7 and 11.

An article from 2008 also said that Brooks turned himself in to the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department in New Jersey for owing $70,000 in child support. 

While Brooks claims to be a resident of Philadelphia, he has long been a fixture of local politics in New Jersey, Politico reported on Monday.

“I started watching it and all of a sudden I was like, ‘there’s New Jersey’s perennial candidate claiming to live in Philadelphia and Giuliani claiming him to be a poll watcher and Philadelphia resident,” Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora said.

Brooks has run for several political offices over the years, including U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, and described himself in 2011 as a Libertarian and activist for the far-right Tea Party activist, according to NJ.com.

According to Brooks’ Facebook page, he moved to Philadelphia in June 2019.

On one image posted to his newsfeed, Brooks can be seen wearing a yellow bandana that reads, “F*ck Tom Wolf,” the governor of Pennsylvania. Another reads, “F*ck Phil Murphy,” the governor of New Jersey. Both politicians are Democrats.

Brooks also has a history of selling out for a quick buck, according to James Gee, chief of staff to Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ).  Gee, who quickly recognized Brooks, said that the man Giuliani trotted out had also been hired by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016.

“Yeah, I know Daryl. It’s so fitting that he would be there,” Gee said.

“People don’t pay attention to who they hire. They’re just trying to get bodies, particularly if it’s a white organizer,” added Gee, who is also Black. “And this time apparently, I guess he was on the Republican side of the watchers.”

Brooks claimed during the press event that he had lived in the City of Brotherly Love “for about two years.”

“I came out here to support our president,” he explained. “A lot of us were excited about the president winning a second term.”

Brooks also alleged that officials “would not allow us to see anything that was happening. We feel that it was not fair at all.”

The revelations come as reports continue to spill out of the White House about splits within the Trump’s inner circle about what course to take after Democratic challenger Joe Biden was declared president-elect on Saturday.

Dolphin Swims Through Louisiana Neighborhood in Aftermath of Hurricane Ida

A Louisiana family was shocked to find a dolphin swimming through their neighborhood in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.

Amanda Huling and her family were assessing the damage to their neighborhood in Slidell, Louisiana, when they noticed the dolphin swimming through the inundated suburban landscape.

In video shot by Huling, the marine mammal’s dorsal fin can be seen emerging from the water.

“The dolphin was still there as of last night but I am in contact with an organization who is going to be rescuing it within the next few days if it is still there,” Huling told FOX 35.

Ida slammed into the coast of Louisiana this past weekend. The Category 4 hurricane ravaged the power grid of the region, plunging residents of New Orleans and upwards of 1 million homes and businesses in Louisiana and Mississippi into the dark for an indefinite period of time.

Officials have warned that the damage has been so extensive that it could take weeks to repair the power grid, reports Associated Press.

Also in Slidell, a 71-year-old man was attacked by an alligator over the weekend while he was in his flooded shed. The man went missing and is assumed dead, reports WDSU.

Internet users began growing weary last year about the steady stream of stories belonging to a “nature is healing” genre, as people stayed indoors and stories emerged about animals taking back their environs be it in the sea or in our suburbs.

However, these latest events are the surreal realities of a world in which extreme weather events are fast becoming the new normal – disrupting our lives in sometimes predictable, and occasionally shocking and surreal, ways.

Mom in LA Suburbs Fights Off Mountain Lion With Bare Hands, Rescues 5-Year-Old Son

A mother in Southern California is being hailed as a hero after rescuing her five-year-old son from an attacking mountain lion.

The little boy was playing outside his home in Calabasas, a city lying west of Los Angeles in the Santa Monica Mountains, when the large cat pounced on him.

The 65-pound (30 kg) mountain lion dragged the boy about 45 yards across the front lawn before the mother acted fast, running out and striking the creature with her bare hands and forcing it to free her son.

“The true hero of this story is his mom because she absolutely saved her son’s life,” California Department of Fish and Wildlife spokesman Captain Patrick Foy told Associated Press on Saturday.

“She ran out of the house and started punching and striking the mountain lion with her bare hands and got him off her son,” Foy added.

The boy sustained significant injuries to his head, neck and upper torso, but is now in stable condition at a hospital in Los Angeles, according to authorities.

The mountain lion was later located and killed by an officer with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, who found the big cat crouching in the bushes with its “ears back and hissing” at the officer shortly after he arrived at the property.

“Due to its behavior and proximity to the attack, the warden believed it was likely the attacking lion and to protect public safety shot and killed it on sight,” the wildlife department noted in its statement.

The mountain lion attack is the first such attack on a human in Los Angeles County since 1995, according to Fish and Wildlife.

The Santa Monica Mountains is a biodiverse region teeming with wildlife such as large raptors, mountain lions, bears, coyote, deer, lizards, and snakes. However, their numbers have rapidly faded in recent years, causing local wildlife authorities to find new ways to manage the region’s endemic species.

Video Shows Taliban Taking Joyride in Captured US Blackhawk Helicopter

The rapid fall of Kabul to the Taliban has resulted in a number of surreal sights – from footage of the Islamist group’s fighters exercising at a presidential gym to clips of combatants having a great time on bumper cars at the local fun park.

However, a new video of Taliban members seemingly testing their skills in the cockpit of a commandeered UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter shows the chilling extent to which U.S. wares have fallen into the hands of a group it spent trillions of dollars, and exhaustive resources, to stamp out.

In the new video, shared on Twitter, the front-line utility helicopter can be seen taxiing on the ground at Kandahar Airport in southeastern Afghanistan, moving along the tarmac. It is unclear who exactly was sitting in the cockpit, and the Black Hawk cannot be seen taking off or flying.

It is unlikely that the Taliban have any combatants who are sufficiently trained to fly a UH-60 Black Hawk.

The helicopter, which carries a $6 million price tag, is just a small part of the massive haul that fell into the militant group’s hands after the country’s central government seemingly evaporated on Aug. 14 amid the withdrawal of U.S. and coalition troops.

Some 200,000 firearms, 20,000 Humvees and hundreds of aircraft financed by Washington for the now-defunct Afghan Army are believed to be in the possession of the Taliban.

The firearms include M24 sniper rifles, M18 assault weapons, anti-tank missiles, automatic grenade launchers, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars.

Taliban fighters in the elite Badri 313 Brigade have been seen in propaganda images showing off in uniforms and wielding weaponry meant for the special forces units of the Afghan Army.

The U.S. is known to have purchased 42,000 light tactical vehicles, 9,000 medium tactical vehicles and over 22,000 Humvees between 2003 and 2016.

The White House remains unclear on how much weaponry has fallen into Taliban hands, with National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan admitting last week that the U.S. lacks a “clear picture of just how much missing $83 billion of military inventory” the group has.
