    Phoenix police say 43-year-old Kenneth Dale Wakefield was booked into Maricopa County jail Saturday afternoon on one count of first-degree murder and two counts of animal cruelty. A man in Arizona is accused of decapitating his wife and their pet dogs and then mutilating himself. The MCSO booking number is T200136 and he is being held on a $2 million bond. Last weekend, investigators found his wife, 49-year-old Trina Heisch, decapitated inside a home in the 5100 block of N. 13th Place. Two dogs were also found dead inside the house. Both victim and suspect were known to have mental...

    In 2008, unbeknownst to authorities in New Jersey, the priest took a job as a high school teacher after disappearing for several years.Law enforcement is still looking for information regarding the whereabouts of a New Jersey priest who has been allegedly hiding in plain sight since he was accused of raping a 15-year-old boy more than a decade ago. The Archdiocese of Newark said Manuel Gallo Espinoza, 51, who served as a visiting priest in New Jersey, apparently fled to his native Ecuador after he was suspended him from ministry - but has re-emerged in the United State since then,...

    BREAKING: GUN USED IN GARLAND, TEXAS ISLAMIC TERRORIST ATTACK BOUGHT UNDER OBAMA’S ‘FAST AND FURIOUS’ You can thank Eric Holder for this. Remember Fast and Furious was a gun running program under Obama and Eric Holder. Hundreds of people have been murdered with these guns. Just another total screwup and coverup from the Obama regime. Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol. At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal...

Wilson revealed that since the shooting, he has struggled to find work and has been denied employment in several police departments in the St. Louis area. After working for a shoe store for two weeks, he quit when reporters began calling. His wife, who is also a police officer, also quit her job for her own safety. Wilson also revealed the he actually sought out the Ferguson police department because...

    It certainly is satisfying to see the Republican Party establishment squirm at the meteoric rise of Donald Trump to front-runner status in the GOP presidential race. You don’t have to like everything Trump says to enjoy watching him topple icons, expose shibboleths and challenge his fellow candidates to be political leaders instead of poll readers. Clearly, on one issue after another, billionaire Trump is ringing the bell with everyday GOP voters, while his opponents are shooting themselves in the foot. It all started on June 16 when Trump announced his campaign with an impromptu speech at the eponymous Trump Tower...

    Calls for more gun control almost always follow a public crime or terror attack in which the attacker–or attackers–use a gun. Yet many of the most infamous attacks take place in gun free zones–places where law-abiding citizens disarm themselves to comply with the rules while criminals take advantage of disarmed masses and open fire. What follows are just a few of the many examples of shootings in gun free zones that could be listed. There is not one type of firearm that can be blamed–the weapon used was sometimes a handgun, sometimes a rifle, other times a shotgun–nor is there one...

    The gun used during the attempted terror attack on the “Draw Muhammad” event in Texas may have been bought from the Arizona store linked to Fast and Furious. Los Angeles Times broke the news yesterday which also included the nugget that Nadir Soofi’s purchase was known by the federal government (emphasis mine). Soofi’s attempt to buy a gun caught the attention of authorities, who slapped a seven-day hold on the transaction, according to his Feb. 24, 2010, firearms transaction record, which was reviewed by the Los Angeles Times. Then, for reasons that remain unclear, the hold was lifted after...

The wealthy real estate developer was sick of the painfully slow police response to widespread gunfights, theft and drug offences, so he created an Uber-style app to clean up his neighbourhood. He bought a fleet of black Polaris Rangers, fitted with blue flashing lights and iPads to deal with requests, and hired off-duty police officers as his team. The former waste disposal mogul, who managed a network of garbage trucks, told The New York Times: “I’m handling crime the...

    You may recall that earlier this year, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was named President of the US Conference of Mayors for her outstanding work in serving the people of her city and demonstrating innovation in turning things around. As part of that process, she decided to summarily fire Police Commissioner Anthony Batts back in the beginning of July. To say the least, I expressed some reservations about the move, particularly considering that most of the questionable tactics employed by the cops during the Freddy Gray riots were handed down from City Hall. But who am I to second guess...

    As a Dutch Amerophile I will never understand why Americans are willing to let their youngest generation be slaughtered by the professional mass murderers of Planned Parenthood. Some accomplices in this genocide (ironically, mostly against black babies!) say that the victims aren’t actually babies, but they know better than that: the babies’ hearts are beating, and their body parts are sold for experimental research. If they weren’t babies, you couldn’t use their organs. It’s simple logic even a die hard progressive can follow, I presume. So what drives this continuing slaughter? I’ve read a lot of opinion pieces by leftists,...

The former Florida governor was named a founding director of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's foundation in 2010, LifeSiteNews reports.

They pulled tight the shutters, set the alarm, locked the house and strolled off. Halfway through the movie the alarm company called, and they rushed home to find the alarm immersed in a bucket of water, the shutters jimmied and a safe emptied of jewelry. The speed and sophistication of the crime were astonishing, the financial adviser’s wife said, still feeling vulnerable and not willing to...

    The man accused of killing two Good Samaritans who tried to help him on a Montana roadside was encountered by immigration authorities earlier this year after a burglary arrest, but was unable to be deported because he had already gotten legal status, federal authorities said this week. Mr. Deniz is Mexican, and the Obama administration deems him a legal permanent resident who entered the country legally on May 31, 2013 — though they didn’t say how he earned that status initially. Indeed, just a month ago Mr. Deniz was arrested by police in Worland, Wyo., on burglary charges. U.S. Immigration...

That’s because of lifetime restrictions on his residency stemming from his conviction decades ago for having sex with an underage campaign worker. After shooting down two possibilities Thursday — including a residence near a kids center in Bartlett and a Red Roof Inn in Indiana — U.S. Magistrate Judge Maria Valdez told him to return to her courtroom and try again Friday afternoon.

    Donald Trump’s blunt and clumsy comments about illegal immigration sparked the usual firestorm of criticism from the well heeled of both parties. Particularly vocal were those Republicans who think that an amorphous, make-believe category comprising “Hispanics” or “Latinos” will vote Republican if only Republican meanies like Trump would stop insulting them by complaining about illegal aliens. As usual, willful ignorance or blindness about the costs of illegal immigration underwrites these dubious ideas.

While the coroner's office has since identified the man killed in the incident, Hetrick said he is withholding the name to allow the man's wife to discuss the death with the couple's young children in Wilmington.

    Why has the Donald Trump candidacy—which so many professionals and pundits at first dismissed as a joke—flared this summer? In the first week of July, 15 percent of Republicans supported Trump for president in a YouGov poll. By the third week, that support had almost doubled, to 28 percent—with another 10 percent listing him as their second choice. Something happened in July to send Trump’s numbers soaring. That something may have been the murder of Kathryn Steinle. On July 5, the 32-year-old Steinle posed with her father for a photograph on a San Francisco pier at 6:30 on a Wednesday...

So in 2011, black leaders got together to do something about it: Not stop the crime. Just stop reporters from letting us know about it. Because it is a little-known fact of psychology that drawing attention to black crime actually causes more black crime -- which draws more attention, which creates more crime. And on and on until...

An opinion, issued by the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel, says the Inspector General Act of 1978 — which was written by Congress to create the government watchdogs in order to help maintain integrity within their agencies — does not have the authority to override nondisclosure provisions in other laws, most...

    In a long overdue reaction to the mounting tally of victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens, the US House of Representatives enacted the "Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act." The bill would block federal law-enforcement grants to cities that refuse to enforce federal immigration laws. The vote for the bill was highly partisan with Republicans heavily in favor and Democrats heavily opposed. Mocking the bill as "the Donald Trump Act," Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif), the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, called the legislation "illogical. Sanctuary cities bear a disproportionate burden of the crimes committed by undocumented inhabitants....

One gun store in Georgia, Sandy Springs Gun Club and Range, has seen an influx of senior citizens eager to get their hands on firearms. Sandy Springs records show a 30 percent increase among seniors buying guns, or showing up for target practice. Even more telling are statistics from Dekalb County which show that out of 1,800 gun applications, 244 were over 55 years old....

The 820,000 figure is not an estimation of total crimes committed by illegal immigrants—which would be a much higher number—but only those illegal aliens successfully identified, arrested, tried, and convicted.

The man who as mayor cleaned up the streets of New York in a professional but tough manner might be the role model for winning the GOP nomination in 2016. After all, what are the real issues this year? Certainly not a potentially nuclear Iran. The deal with Iran is bad, but in Congress there are not enough votes to stop it. Illegal immigration, as pointed out by Donald Trump, could be a hot button topic. But the GOP is torn over the issue and Trump is finding his message...

    The border security movement had been losing steam, but is being reinvigorated by the focus of presidential candidate Donald Trump, Politico reports. The Republican Party, hoping to lure more Hispanic voters, had not planned to focus on illegal immigration or border security during the 2016 election cycle, but that changed when Trump uttered the now infamous words about Mexican immigrants during his June 16 entry into the GOP race. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump said. "They're sending people that have lots of problems … They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some,...

At the press conference, law enforcement officials laid out a plan of temporary increased patrols and partnerships with the Washtenaw...

    During a July 23 press conference, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)(D-CA-12th) suggested the problem with sanctuary city policies isn’t the sanctuary aspect but the continued the access to guns. An unidentified reporter asked Pelosi if she supports the current GOP push to force cities to comport with immigration laws, and Pelosi made clear that she does not. She then explained her opposition by making nameless references to the July 1 murder of Kathryn Steinle–allegedly shot to death by illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez on San Francisco’s Pier 14–and argued that sanctuary cities are not the problem. Pelosi said:...

    The murder of Kathryn Steinle on the Embarcadero in San Francisco by an illegal alien is the most familiar example of a crime committed by an alien.

PJ Media obtained an never-before-released copy of a Texas DPS report on human smuggling containing the numbers of crimes committed by illegal aliens in Texas. According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Yesterday in Washington on Capitol Hill there was a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on immigration endorsement and the lack of it. The Immigration Customs Endorsement Director (that's ICE) Sarah Saldana, testified. During the Q&A, Senator Ted Cruz, who, by the way, if you are a member of the media, if you are a (I know this is redundant) liberal Democrat, if you are a low-information troll that lives on Twitter or Facebook, you do not ever want to get into a debate with Ted Cruz. You will be exposed as an idiot. See what I mean... CRUZ:...

    The Mackinac Center has joined with groups from across the political spectrum, including the ACLU of Michigan and FreedomWorks, to push back against Michigan's civil asset forfeiture laws. Civil asset forfeiture is a practice that allows law enforcement to take possession of private property without charging the owner with a crime. Some states, as well as the federal government, have taken steps to curb this injustice in recent years, but Michigan's laws were recently rated a 'D' by FreedomWorks in a national survey of forfeiture laws. Michigan Radio reports: … Michigan law enforcement agencies have collected more than $250 million...

    Have you ever thought of letting someone else manage your finances? If President Obama has his way, Social Security recipients who have trouble managing their finances will be banned from buying a gun. If Social Security were to start classifying these people as “mentally defective,” some 4.2 million Social Security recipients could be affected – about 10 percent of all people 65 and older. But it is a real reach to say those who can’t manage their finances are a physical danger to themselves or others. What is next? Saying that people who can’t drive well or fail a math...
