    The leader of the New York arm of the Black Lives Matter movement is calling out New York gubernatorial candidate and actress/activist Cynthia Nixon for her comments on legalizing marijuana over the weekend, in which she said that the industry could provide a form of “reparations” for communities of color. While he supports cannabis legalization, Black Lives Matter of Greater New York president Hawk Newsome told the Times Union on Monday that candidates for office should not use words like “reparations” lightly, a topic on which there is a growing body of serious scholarship. “Cynthia Nixon’s comments that the legalization...

    CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) - The Charleston Police Department is searching for Tammy Rena Jordan, 52, on warrants for stealing money from adults with special needs. Police say on May 18th, 2018, Jordan asked the victim for money to buy a soda at the Charleston Town Center Mall. The victim is severely handicapped and confined to a wheelchair. Police say the victim cannot access his wallet without assistance so he allowed Jordan to retrieve the money herself. Jordan then took a substantial amount of money from the victim’s wallet and fled toward the Transit Mall. ***PICTURE ON LINK****

    GORDON HEIGHTS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Just how much can one community take? There are multiple neighborhoods in New York where the state has clustered paroled ex-cons, and innocent families are paying the price. A 26-year-old mother accused of trying to kill her baby earlier this month created anguish in her Suffolk County community. Her lawyer claims she was mentally ill and a victim of human trafficking, while others say she was an interloper moving from house to house on a notorious street in a hamlet that borders Coram — Gordon Heights.

    Thanks to Obama’s Dirty Works Department people no longer trust the FBI and other intelligence agencies Sneaky, self-appointed ‘Resistance Leader’ Barack Hussein Obama must have been choking on his shaved ice or whatever else he was slurping around noon today when radio giant Rush Limbaugh dug up and re-broadcast his words about Donald Trump “whining” about being spied on. What Obama had to say about Trump’s spying complaints, just three weeks before he was elected president, is particularly significant as Obama’s words on October 18, 2016 were the first— last and only words to date—on the Spying on Donald Trump...

    WHAT: The violent animals of MS-13 have committed heinous, violent attacks in communities across America. Too many innocent Americans have fallen victim to the unthinkable violence of MS-13’s animals. At the State of the Union in January 2018, President Trump brought as his guests Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas, the parents of Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas. Police believe these young girls were chased down and brutally murdered by MS-13 gang members on Long Island, New York, in 2016. Suffolk County Police Commissioner stated that the “murders show a level of brutality that is close to...

    Sadiq Khan’s London has seen an “appalling escalation” of serious crimes including murder, violent robbery, and home burglary in the last year, according to new police data. Figures released by the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee showing the number of crimes in the year to March 2018 revealed the murder rate surged 44 per cent in 2017/18 to 157, compared with 109 in the previous 12 months. Violent robbery and home burglary were up by about a third in the period, and youth killings rose by 30 per cent from 26 in 2016/17 to 34 in 2017/18. The figures...
  • Texas shooting suspect's choice of guns complicates debate over assault rifles

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | May 20, 2018 | Callum Borchers, The Washington Post
    Las Vegas introduced Americans to the rapid-fire lethality of bump stocks. Parkland reminded the public how quickly someone can inflict mass carnage with an AR-15, the weapon of choice in many rampages. But Friday's shooting at Santa Fe High School, which left 10 dead, was carried out with a pistol and a shotgun - firearms that even gun-control advocates generally regard as utilitarian. The reality that weapons not included in proposed assault-rifle bans can still exact a double-digit death toll further complicates a wrenching national debate about how to prevent future tragedies. "That's true" that weapons other than assault rifles...

    A former executive of a North Texas hospice on Thursday admitted her role in an alleged $60 million scheme that included overdosing patients to "hasten their deaths," according to a court document. Melanie Murphey, operations director for Novus Health Services in Frisco, pleaded guilty to federal health-care fraud charges. She faces up to ten years in prison. She is expected to testify against 15 others involved in the alleged conspiracy, including Novus’ owner Bradley Harris and his wife Amy. In court documents detailing her crime, Murphey said she was the "go-between" between Bradley Harris and five nurses and five doctors...

    ST. LOUIS • Alderman Jack Coatar says Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s office didn’t do its job after a band of car break-in thieves was released on bail. Police believe six suspects committed more than 100 car break-ins mostly in downtown neighborhoods since at least 2014. Initially, their bail was set at $150,000. But Judge Nicole Colbert-Botchway reduced bail for three of them to $50,000 on April 27. They were allowed to post 10 percent of it, which they did, and were released. Two of those suspects, Lamonte Brown, 34, and Jason Holmes, 38, were charged with three counts each of...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defended violent MS-13 gang members in a press conference Thursday, saying they are not “animals,” a term President Trump dubbed MS-13 members earlier this week. Pelosi first alluded to God, saying, “Some of us who are attracted to the political arena, to government and public service” believe that “we are all God’s children” and “there is a spark of divinity among every person on earth, and we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person.” “So when the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, ‘These...

    To a small group of pump-and-dump traders with no scruples, Jordan Belfort—the poster-child for the ‘Wolf of Wall Street’—is an idol; to most others, including the judge in his case, he’s a deadbeat who’s only paid a small fraction of the tens of millions he owes his victims in restitution. Belfort is famous for being played by Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street—the already iconic 2013 film that definitively introduced us to the boiler-room beasts, and the over-the-top pump-and-dump schemers that are a black stain on the trading floor. And Wednesday, during a garnishment hearing in New York...

    If it is considered 'objectionable' in the West to talk about the factual consequences of migration, in Sweden it is now viewed as a crime. The kind of 'integration' that the mosque in Växjö is reportedly spreading to the local Muslim inhabitants is that Muslims are urged not to participate in the Christmas celebration of "kuffars" [a derogatory term for 'disbelievers'], and Jews are, of course, mentioned as the enemies of Allah. The mosque's school uses Saudi Arabian school curricula, and encourages women not to dress in 'Western clothes'. "Silence has become an established norm in certain groups of...

    Mowing down school kids, concertgoers and other innocent people is a quintessentially American homicidal tradition that annually devours more lives than terrorism. For many of the sick, angry assailants, the weapon of choice is a military-style, semi-automatic assault rifle, purchased over the counter and made in Germany, where such assault-type weapons are banned for civilian use. German gunmakers Heckler & Koch and Sig Sauer are major suppliers of semi-automatic assault rifles designed to rapidly fire ammunition that can kill or maim people. While their primary customers for these guns are armies, the firms have also tapped into lucrative markets in...

    Now-former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's serial and often violent mistreatment of women chronicled on Monday at The New Yorker is yet another example of scandalous behavior which was widely known among leaders in both the Democratic Party and the media elites that somehow never surfaced in public for years (a few of many additional examples would include former Today Show host Matt Lauer, former PBS/CBS newsman Charlie Rose, and retired NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw).

Cochran was sentenced to 65 years behind bars, after admitting to injecting her husband with a fatal dose of heroin and smothering him in their northern Indiana home. The court’s decision came as Cochran was serving a life sentence in another case: the slaying and dismembering of her lover in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. As shocking as those crimes are, an upcoming TV documentary will look into other crimes that her friends and family suspect Cochran of committing. That includes as many as nine other possible victims buried across the Midwest, as well...

    Porn star Stormy Daniels's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, has covered television screens across America, and because of it, he claims his exposure is why he was able to get his hands on the bank records of President Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, as well as the bank records of several other Michael Cohens, none of whom have anything at all to do with President Trump. Possession of such stolen property is well worth throwing him in jail all by itself, and even the experts quoted in the leftwing Daily Beast say he's got a problem with that one. But he's actually got...
