The Face of Socialism: A Political Ad Sparking Controversy
Elizabeth Heng, a former Fresno mayoral candidate, has created a political ad that is causing a stir across the political spectrum. The ad is a hit on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and the Democratic Party, with Heng claiming that they represent the face of socialism. The ad has been airing in select markets across the country, including Fresno, and has sparked heated debates on the topic.
- Panelists include Joe Kieta, Executive Editor of the Fresno Bee, Phillip Teresi, host of KMJ's afternoon drive, and Ricardo Franco, former district 22 Democratic congressional candidate.
- Franco argues that Heng's ad is a blatant attack on AOC and represents a fear tactic used by the Republican Party to win votes.
- Teresi disagrees and claims that AOC represents a type of socialism that is destroying cities and economies.
- Kieta believes that the ad is provocative but has a shock value that could be convincing to some people.
- Franco stresses that there is a difference between the socialism that the Democratic Party is promoting and the socialism that Heng is attacking in her ad.
- Kieta suggests that Heng's ad is a way to keep her name in the public domain and could be a sign of future political aspirations.
- The panelists agree that the ad is effective in grabbing attention and sparking debates.
The controversy surrounding Elizabeth Heng's political ad highlights the ongoing debate over socialism in American politics. While some believe that the ad is a fear tactic used by the Republican Party, others argue that it represents a growing concern over the effects of socialism on cities and economies. Regardless of one's stance, it is clear that Heng's ad has succeeded in sparking conversation and bringing attention to the issue.
The Pawn Stars Were FORCED To Kick Out This Customer...
The guys from Pawn Stars are known for their friendly demeanor, but they are entrepreneurs at the end of the day. In this article, we will explore six customers who were banned from the Gold Silver Pawn Shop.
1. Daniel Callaghan:
In 2011, Daniel Callaghan filed a lawsuit against Rick and the old man for physically assaulting him inside their shop. Callaghan, a Vietnam veteran who walks with a cane, got into an argument with the duo, which resulted in them placing him outside the store. Callaghan claimed that he was injured in the incident, and his cane and rifle were damaged. He sought $20,000 in the suit, but according to Corey, his father and grandfather cannot be blamed for throwing him out as he became irate with a weapon in his hand.
In the show's second season, a bald guy with a prominent mustache in a foreign accent called Rafael came to the shop to sell a limited edition statue by French sculptor Emile de Becque called from 1888. Although he kept saying that he didn't know anything about the piece, he had a pretty clear idea about how much he wanted for it and got quite upset when Rick gave him his thoughts on the statue.
3. The Chmura File:
In this episode, a guy named Ifile came to the Gold Silver Pawn Shop with a bronze statue that he wanted to sell for about $6,000. He claimed he didn't know anything about it, but Rick pointed out that the statue showed Perseus and Pegasus, with Perseus wearing a helmet that made him invisible. After Ifile stated that he didn't know what Rick was talking about, Rick informed him that the sculptor was a French sculptor born in the 1830s, and the statue was a recast from 40 or 50 years earlier. However, the customer didn't believe him and got pretty angry.
4. Buying Stolen Items:
In 2014, a woman came to the pawn shop with a collection of valuable gold coins and got a little over $12,000 for them. It later turned out that she had stolen the coins from her uncle, but the Pawn Stars had already melted the coins down to make more money from selling the gold than they had initially spent on the coins. The gold coin collection was actually worth about $50,000 and contained rare coins like a 1903 State Gardens 20 gold piece and silver Morgan coins from the 1880s and contemporary one-ounce American Buffalo gold pieces.
5. The Biggest Bust:
When a man offered Rick a pair of diamond earrings of the finest quality, Rick paid $40,000 for the jewelry. However, three days later, the police came to the shop, and it turned out that the earrings had been stolen. The Gold Silver Pawn Shop gave them back to the owner, and the thief was arrested, but the money was lost.
6. Corey's Big Play:
A guy named Bill had come to the shop and offered Corey a 19th-century Wells Fargo strongbox with two antique prison ball and chain sets from the Yuma and Folsom prisons. Rick had some concerns about the authenticity of the ball and chain sets, saying that they would have only been hot-welded together during that time. After Bill had assured him that the ball and chain sets hadn't come in the box originally, Rick decided to make an offer on the Wells Fargo strongbox.
Pawn Stars has had its fair share of interesting customers and situations. While some customers were banned from the Gold Silver Pawn Shop for their behavior, others were banned for selling stolen items. The show has also been scammed by people coming into their shop. Despite these incidents, the Pawn Stars remain a popular show and continue to entertain their viewers.

Newly leaked Florence, Arizona prison video shows inmates trap officers in stairwell
An exclusive ABC 15 investigation has obtained leaked videos from inside an Arizona prison that shows inmates calling the shots, not the corrections officers. The video shows officers being held against their will inside a stairwell, and no inmates received any discipline, which may be part of a behind-the-scenes pact between gang leaders and prison staff.
- The video shows a prison with stacked cells, groups of inmates dressed in orange, and push-ups, haircuts, and lookouts.
- A deal is going down in a cell behind a raised sheet, with a lookout. Two officers walk into the area, and as one walks toward the cell to grab the sheet, the two inmates inside walk toward the stairwell. One of them distracts the officers while the other heads up to the third floor to make another exchange.
- Inmates surround the officers as they enter the stairwell, and the officers are trapped between the first and second level for almost a minute and a half. Another officer talks to the group, and the inmates let the pair out as other staff arrive.
- The inmates involved in the incident are documented prison gang members who have been given licenses to run things just like officers. They have a say-so in the prison and are rewarded with extra privileges and withholding discipline.
- The outside investigation found that supervisors used inmate leaders who had influence over other inmates to help control inmate behavior and keep the peace. These inmate leaders were rewarded by extra privileges and withholding discipline.
- Inmates involved in the incident were reviewed and found to be appropriately classified and housed. No formal disciplinary action was warranted.
The leaked videos from inside an Arizona prison show how inmates are running the show, not the corrections officers. It highlights the need for stricter regulations and protocols to ensure that inmates are not given the power to control the prison environment. The fact that no disciplinary action was taken against the inmates involved shows the need for accountability and transparency in the prison system.
