    “Just Stop Oil Protestors Throw Soup On Van Gogh’s Sunflowers at London’s National Gallery”


    “The Just Stop Oil protesters have given a Master Class on how not to persuade people to join your cause as they continue their wave of destruction across London.

    The two females threw a can of soup over Van Gogh’s Sunflowers at the National Gallery. Thank goodness the painting has glass over it!

    Then the females glued themselves to the wall.

    These people keep gluing themselves to things. Do you know what’s in glue? Petroleum-based materials.

    What is petroleum? The fossil fuel known as crude oil.”

  6. AJ – I am curious about your 9:06 post. Is it refuting the claim in the video that the man was released at that time because he had served his time, not an early release?


  7. I’m not sure what you mean Kizzie,

    Here are the details. He was apparently released early twice, and due to parole violations should not have been released even after his sentence for the original crimes ended. His parole violation should have added time to his sentence, as is the case in most states. But the Gov and state workers ignored that and released him anyway.

    There is some disputes between this 2 pieces you’ll notice on the reduced time for good behavior.


    “So who’s really to blame?

    Court records show Beltran was released from the Penitentiary of New Mexico outside Santa Fe on Sept. 28, 2020 – just 12 days before his scheduled parole date – under an executive order issued by Lujan Grisham during the COVID-19 pandemic that allowed inmates to be released early from prison if they met certain qualifying criteria.

    Beltran absconded from parole on Oct. 6 – just days after being released – and was arrested and subsequently imprisoned until the end of his parole sentence on June 22, 2021.

    Six days after his sentence ended, Beltran’s ex-girlfriend Domonique Gonzales, 34, was found shot to death at the front door of her grandfather’s home in Roswell, according to court records. Multiple witnesses, video footage and other evidence led police to charge Beltran with murder.

    On Sept. 29 of this year, Beltran pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and faces up to 12 years in prison, according to court documents.

    That sequence of events is not in dispute, but the reasons for Beltran’s release have been hotly disputed.

    Dispute with DA

    District Attorney Luce, a staunch critic of Lujan Grisham’s executive order and other crime-related policies, told the Journal the governor’s administration “clearly miscalculated” when it came to awarding Beltran good time to reduce his sentence after he absconded from parole.

    “Simple math makes it clear that Beltran was released from prison months early,” said Luce, who added that Beltran should not have been eligible for a reduced sentence since he was recorded making threatening phone calls while behind bars.

    In response, a Corrections Department spokeswoman said Friday the agency was not aware of threatening phone calls being made by Beltran before his release.

    Agency spokeswoman Carmelina Hart also said Beltran did not earn any good time reductions for periods of time he was held in segregation while imprisoned, but said he ultimately got his sentence reduced by nearly five months under agency good time guidelines.

    Meanwhile, the Lujan Grisham administration has cited the fact Beltran was previously charged in April 2019 with being a felon in possession of a firearm while on probation in an auto theft case.

    That charge was dismissed by Luce’s office after Beltran’s defense attorney filed a motion to suppress evidence due to illegal search and seizure by Roswell police.

    Corrections Department spokeswoman Hart said if Beltran had been convicted on the firearm charge he wouldn’t have been eligible for early release under Lujan Grisham’s executive order – which made those charged with a “firearm enhancement” ineligible to qualify for the program.

    A conviction also could have put Beltran behind bars for up to 18 months.

    Instead, Beltran’s probation was revoked in January 2020 due to multiple violations including the gun charge and failed drug tests, according to court records. He was sentenced to 2½ years behind bars with 442 days credit for time served – but only ended up serving about nine months during that prison stint.

    Luce said her office has “an ethical responsibility to not go forward on a case in which we believe constitutional rights were violated,” but did not elaborate on the reasons the charge was dismissed. She also said her office used the initial charge, combined with failed drug tests, to have Beltran’s probation revoked.”




    “”The governor released him from prison early, said he was ready to be our neighbor,” claims an ad from Ronchetti.

    “Days after his early release, he hunted his ex-girlfriend down, shot her in the face, murdered her,” states an ad from the RGA.

    It’s true Beltran got out of prison 12 days early in September 2020 under an executive order the incumbent Democrat signed in April of that year. The order was part of an effort to fight the spread of COVID-19 among inmates inside the state’s correctional facilities at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

    But a question remains: Did Beltran get out of prison early a second time after he was placed back behind bars for a parole violation?

    The answer is a point of contention between the Republican district attorney whose office prosecuted Beltran and the state Department of Corrections, which was responsible for his release.

    “Christopher Beltran was released from prison early twice,” Dianna Luce, district attorney for the 5th Judicial District in southeastern New Mexico, wrote in a statement.

    But Carmelina Hart, a corrections spokeswoman, refuted Luce.

    She said Beltran served his sentence, which included credit for nearly five months of good time.

    “The release of Mr. Beltran in 2021 was following his serving his sentence for the original charge,” Hart said.

    After the parole board “officially revoked” Beltran’s parole Jan. 6, 2021, Hart wrote Beltran “continued to serve the remainder of his sentence” for the unlawful taking of a motor vehicle.

    Although Hart did not specifically explain how Beltran’s good time was calculated, she wrote “his time earned was four months and 29 days as determined by state statute and records policy originally implemented in 1999. He was released on June 22, 2021, after completing the entirety of his sentence.”

    Luce, however, maintains Beltran was ineligible for good time.

    “The Lujan Grisham administration clearly miscalculated when it came to awarding Beltran good time in order to release him early,” Luce, a Republican, wrote in her statement. “Under New Mexico law, offenders who violate parole through absconding and are sent back to prison are only eligible for 4 days of good time credit for every 30 days served. Moreover, offenders who make threats on prison phone calls and are held in segregation — as was the case with Beltran — are not eligible for any good time.”

    Luce said “simple math makes it clear” Beltran was released from prison months early.

    Hart wrote Beltran “did not receive good time served for any periods of time he was held in segregation.”

    Will Reinert, a spokesman for the Republican Governors Association, said the release of a “hardened criminal” resulted in a “preventable murder.”

    “Lujan Grisham’s attempt to shirk responsibility won’t undo the pain caused to the victim’s family,” he wrote in a statement. “But it does show New Mexicans her true colors.”

    In prison phone recordings, Beltran had threatened Gonzales before his release.

    “Got the biggest gun that I could have from the [expletive] gun store,” he told her in one recording that was included in the RGA’s ad. “[Expletive] dead girl walking.”

    Hart wrote calls from inmates are generally recorded but not actively monitored except in special circumstances, such as when the department suspects the inmate is conducting illegal business or there is a separate ongoing criminal case involving the inmate.”
