Strange.

Strange new video footage captured by a New Jersey man appears to depict what looks like a ‘ghost’ running across the grounds of the infamous Battle of Gettysburg of the American Civil War.

The footage, captured by Gregory Yuelling, appears to show a humanoid blur running to a gravel road next to two cannons commemorating the battle.

Watch the footage here. The blur in question appears on camera at around 15 seconds into the footage.

Skeptics have argued that the blur seen on Yuelling’s windshield is no more than a drop of water moving across the glass in the wind, but Yuelling disputes that notion.

The Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863 was not only the most bloody battle of the American Civil War, but the bloodiest battle ever to occur on American soil, or on the North American continent, for that matter. The combined Union and Confederate armies suffered around 50,000 casualties, with some estimates placing the combined totals of deaths at 10,000.

The battle in southern Pennsylvania was the essential turning point in favor of the Union forces in the Civil War, interrupting a string of Confederate victories that made secession seem impossible to prevent. Abraham Lincoln delivered the iconic Gettysburg Address four months at the site after the battle, dedicating a cemetery to the killed Union soldiers who fought in the battle. The historical site of the battle remains a compelling tourist attraction, not too far away from the Philadelphia metro area.

A real encounter with the paranormal, someone playing a prank, or a twist of fate falling upon someone with a colorful imagination? You decide.

Mitch McConnell Takes One Final Dig at President Trump, Saying He “Fed Lies” and “Provoked” the People Who Stormed the Capitol

Par for the course.

Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave one final speech attacking President Donald Trump before the latter leaves office Wednesday. He repeated the false claim that Trump incited protesters to storm the Capitol building and said that Congress will “move forward” to continue addressing the serious challenges facing the United States.

A transcript of McConnell’s remarks is as follows:

The last time the Senate convened, we had just reclaimed the Capitol from violent criminals who tried to stop Congress from doing our duty. The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people. And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like. But we pressed on. We stood together and said an angry mob would not get veto power over the rule of law in our nation. Not even for one night. We certified the people’s choice for their 46th president.

Tomorrow, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will be sworn in. We’ll have a safe and successful inaugural right here on the west front of the Capitol, the space that President Bush 41 called ‘democracy’s front porch.’ And then we’ll move forward. Our work for the American people will continue as it has for more than 230 years. There are serious challenges that our nation needs to continue confronting. But there will also be great and hopeful opportunities for us to seize. Certainly November’s elections did not hand any side a mandate for sweeping ideological change. Americans elected a closely divided Senate, a closely divided House, and a presidential candidate who said he’d represent everyone. So our marching orders from the American people are clear. We’re to have a robust discussion and seek common ground. We are to pursue bipartisan agreement everywhere we can, and check and balance one another respectfully where we must. And through all of this, we must always keep in mind that we’re all Americans, we all love this country, and we’re all in this together.”

Only a couple hours before the Capitol incident McConnell rejected Trump’s claims of voter fraud and a stolen election and said he would “respect the people’s decision” to elect Joe Biden. Then it was reported the following week that McConnell privately expressed his pleasure at Trump’s second impeachment and praised it as an opportunity to purge him from the GOP.

Because of the 50-50 tie between Democrats and Republicans in the Senate, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell are said to be working out a power-sharing agreement. Sources familiar with the details say that although Democrats will be in charge of setting the schedule, both parties will equally split the number of seats they hold on various committees.
