    JERSEY CITY -- Prosecutors haven't presented enough evidence to support a robbery charge against a man cops say was a would-be bank robber when he entered a Hoboken branch after the money had already been locked up for the night, a judge has ruled. Edward Dempsey, 54, of Bayonne, hopped over the teller counter at Investors Bank on River Street at 6:45 p.m. June 7 and saw that every cash drawer was empty, police said. After Dempsey learned there was no loot to be had, he requested the return of his note and left the bank otherwise empty-handed, an official...

Italy sparked the fresh row earlier this month when it refused to take in the Aquarius rescue ship....

    It has long been suspected; the footprints and fingerprints were always present; McCain repeatedly denied it…. now the evidence surfaces. For those who remember the issues when the IRS, White House and DOJ organized the post 2010 election “shellacking” targeting of Tea Party groups, the latest discovery from Judicial watch is confirmation of a long-held opinion. John McCain was instrumental in supporting the weaponization of the IRS to target tea party groups.

    A checkpoint set up by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents Wednesday on Interstate 95 led to the arrest of a fugitive Haitian immigrant who previously was ordered to be deported. The random checkpoint, which was in place for 11 hours, stopped traffic in the southbound lanes between the Penobscot County towns of Howland and Lincoln. Several agents set up cones blocking the highway, and then asked vehicle occupants questions about their citizenship before letting them proceed. Southbound drivers could not avoid the roadblock.

    Office of Management & Budget Director Mick Mulvaney gave an intricate and often eccentric explanation of redundancy and overlap in federal bureaucracy in a presentation that stunned the president and the press. "I call this the 'drain the swamp' cabinet meeting," Mulvaney said, adding that it has been about 100 years since the federal government was reorganized at this scale. He criticized the "Byzantine nature" by which the government regulates, creating headaches for business owners, employees and taxpayers.

    Former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson reminded MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell Thursday of the Obama administration’s decision to expand the number of immigrant family detentions. A partial transcript follows: JEH JOHNSON: Illegal migration reacts sharply to perceived changes in enforcement policy — in the short term — but it always reverts back longer term to the longer term trends given the underlying condition of the so-called push factors in central America. So that is what President Trump and his administration have seen now over the last year. The numbers are 40 or 50,000 per month and they are obviously...
