    Teens in stolen car crash had 126 arrests; murder charges possible (w/video) ^ | 08 AUG 17 | By Zachary T. Sampson, Lisa Gartner, Laura Morel and Anastasia Dawson, Times Staff Writers
    The last thing Keondrae Brown remembers before he blacked out is lying in shattered glass on Tampa Road, next to the burning wreckage of a stolen car, lucky to be alive after a high-speed crash that killed his brother and two of his friends. Now Keondrae and two other boys in a second stolen car could face murder charges in the deaths of Keontae Brown, 16; Jimmie Goshey, 14; and Dejarae Thomas, 16. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri suggested the more serious charges against the surviving teens at a news conference Monday, a day after the Palm Harbor crash once again highlighted...

    Half of the eight candidates for mayor on Detroit's Democratic primary ballot have been previously convicted criminals. Donna Marie Pitts has multiple felony convictions dating back to 1977. Danetta Simpson has a 1996 felony conviction for assault with intent to murder. Articia Bomer was charged in 2008 with carrying a concealed weapon. In 2004, Curtis Christopher Greene was sentenced to 18 months' probation under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act for dealing marijuana and in 2005 plead guilty to writing a fraudulent check. Pitts called her conviction stemming from a shoot out at an auto repair shop "an honest disagreement over...

    Molotov cocktails, fireworks, and bottles have been hurled at police during a ‘Black Lives Matter’ riot in East London following the death of an alleged drug dealer. Rashan Jermaine Charles, 20, died in hospital after being apprehended by police in Dalston, Hackney on the 22nd of July. He was attempting to flee a shop while swallowing a stash of drugs when tackled by officers, according to reports. Following the death, masked activists bearing ‘Black Lives Matter’ placards shut down Kingsland Road, set fire to bins and mattresses, and even attempted to storm a passing lorry, the BBC reports.

    Former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice met Friday with investigators from the Senate intelligence committee regarding Russia’s attempts to influence the election. Rice is one of three former Obama officials who met with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, according to an official who spoke with CNN, but part of the reason why this meeting is particularly hot is due to several Republicans thinking Rice revealed the identities of Trump associates collected by the intelligence community. “Ambassador Rice met voluntarily with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence today as part of the committee’s bipartisan investigation into Russia’s interference in...

    An “open letter” published on an anarchist website urges liberals and progressives to take the side of violent “anti-fascist” (Antifa) groups. Antifa have often embraced violent acts like rioting, breaking storefronts, and beating political opponents on the streets, which has correlated with an increasing number of violent incidents directed at conservatives and Republicans. (RELATED: This List Of Attacks Against Conservatives Is Mind Blowing) It’s Going Down, a self-described “digital community center from anarchist, anti-fascist, autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements,” recently published an open letter to regular liberals and progressives urging them to take the side of the Black Bloc. Its...

    No wonder former FBI Director James Comey refused to press charges last summer against Hillary Clinton for her egregious security breaches: It turns out, he may have been guilty of the same thing. As the inside-the-beltway political publication The Hill reported, more than half of the memos FBI Director James Comey wrote after having spoken to President Trump about the Russia investigation contained classified information. The Hill cites as its sources "officials familiar with the documents." All told, Comey wrote seven memos based on nine meetings with Trump. In testimony to Congress, he asserted that he had made sure the...

    A group of Iraqi Christians facing deportation under President Trump’s tough new border controls has been given a temporary reprieve, but could still be sent back to face what their attorney calls almost certain death. A U.S. District Judge issued a stay this week on the deportation of 82 Chaldean and Assyrian Christians from the Detroit area, who have criminal records, but who have served their prison time and paid their debt to society. Their lawyer, Clarence M. Dass, points out that some of those criminal convictions date back to the 1980s and 1990s and involve drugs and financial misdeeds,...

    Oh, the ghosts of Burlington College are back to haunt the Sanders. In 2016, reports about Sen. Bernie Sander’s (I-VT) wife, Jane, running the college into the ground, coupled with his tax plan, made for some good cannon fodder against the self-described democratic socialist’s financially reckless agenda during the 2016 primaries. Yet, what was missed was the fact that the FBI began peering through the financial records of the college, which had secured a $10 million loan to expand the campus along Lake Champlain. The local Catholic archdiocese had owned the property and had just settled on sexual abuse charges...

    The Democrats are a network of criminals who seek to sabotage this past election using the press, various progressive organizations and George Soros NGO’s. Their deceptive practices are direct assaults on our electoral process and threatens the stability of our republic. Their “Resistance” supported by powerful Democrats and their activists, use inciting rhetoric fomenting violence leading to attempted assassinations of dozens of GOP congressman by Bernie Sanders supporter, James T. Hodgkinson. Although the Trump-Russia narrative of collusion has been dispelled by lack of evidence, it still makes headlines. Although Lyin’ Chuck Schumer kept repeating a lie, there was never a...

    Artifacts connected to some of the nation's most notorious gangsters are being auctioned this weekend. A handwritten musical composition by Al Capone, a letter written by John Gotti, and jewelry that belonged to Bonnie and Clyde are among the items up for bid Saturday in the "Gangsters, Outlaws and Lawmen" auction in Cambridge, Massachusetts, by Boston-based RR Auction. The musical piece entitled "Humoresque" shows Capone's softer side. Written when Capone was in Alcatraz in the 1930s, it contains the lines: "You thrill and fill this heart of mine, with gladness like a soothing symphony, over the air, you gently float,...

    President Donald Trump’s immigration enforcer doubled down Friday on recent comments that undocumented immigrants “should be afraid” under the Trump administration. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan said in an interview today that he has “zero regrets” about his remarks before Congress this week, expanding on them. “It needed to be said,” Homan told CNN on the sidelines of a Central American prosperity and security conference. “And by me saying you should be worried, you should be afraid — if you lie on your taxes, you’ve got to be worried, ‘Is the IRS going to audit me?’ …...
  • Mongols Case Forever And Ever

    The ironic war the United States of America has waged against the Mongols Motorcycle Club is now in its 20th year. It began as an offshoot of investigations in Los Angeles by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives into the Vagos, Sundowners and Hells Angels Motorcycle Clubs. Like the Hundred Years War in the 14th Century, the Mongols War can be divided into distinct phases. In the beginning, in about 1998 when the Mongols were comparatively short handed, the ATF managed to infiltrate an undercover agent named William Queen – his name in the club was Billy “Slow...

    TIJUANA, MEXICO — Rep. Juan Vargas, a California Democrat whose district runs the length of the state’s border with Mexico, introduced a set of bills last fall aimed at helping U.S. military veterans who were deported after they were convicted of crimes. The bills stalled, casualties of what he called bad timing during the presidential campaign. Vargas reintroduced the bills last week, because now he sees “a real opportunity.” He and six other Democratic members of Congress spent Saturday in this Mexican border town visiting deported veterans to press the issue, thinking that President Trump might be receptive to the...

    FBI Director James Comey has been fired, and the lunatics on the left are being predictable. They are illustrating their inability to be satisfied, happy or even cooperative. They hated and distrusted Comey and are now finding fault with his dismissal. It comes from a basic, fundamental liberal position. Truth does not matter; only the goals matter. If it could harm Trump, they will do it. For decades, the left had assumed that losing any power in Washington was temporary and that they would still control the bureaucracy. Their career employees could not be fired and would work against all...

    The federal government denies it’s behind the problems faced by Roma travellers, saying it’s up to airlines to decide who boards flights to Canada.Ottawa is being accused of preventing Roma travellers from boarding Canada-bound flights and denying them the possibility of seeking asylum here. Since the end of last year, advocates and lawyers say a slew of Roma passengers from Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia — all currently visa-exempted countries — have reported being stopped from boarding flights to Canada via transit points in England, Poland, Belgium and Germany. The federal government denies that it is to blame....

    More than a quarter of assailants, twenty-eight percent or (14/50), expressed a desire to kill law officers prior to carrying out their deadly attacks. Their main reason: attacking police officers was their way to “get justice” for those who they believed were unjustly killed by law enforcement. Some tipped off friends or family about their intent to kill police. And, unsurprisingly, some of the assailants said they were influenced by the poisonous Black Lives Matter movement.

    In the City of Brotherly Love, you can retain your voter registration no matter what crime you commit. That’s because election officials refuse to take convicted felons off the voter rolls even if they’re still serving time in jail. One potential voter is convicted baby murderer Dr. Kermit Gosnell. In May 2013, in a case that shocked the nation, Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder for killing fully developed babies born alive at his abortion clinic by severing their spines with scissors. He got three life terms, the latter for killing a baby that he joked was so large it...

    House to consider protecting immigration law evaders where IL's most vulnerable gather SPRINGFIELD - Illinois House members will be asked this week to make state-funded places where Illinois' most vulnerable citizens gather as the very same locations criminals will be able to find sanctuary from immigration authorities. SB 31, dubbed by supporters as the "Illinois Trust Act," passed the Illinois Senate last week along party lines, with all Democrats voting "Yes," and all Republicans voting "No," except Senate GOP Leader Christine Radogno, who voted "Present." Six Democrats did not vote. If the bill becomes law, tax-funded pre-schools, hospitals, nursing homes...

    Legislation backed by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) known as “national concealed carry reciprocity,” would require states that issue permits allowing gun owners to carry concealed weapons to recognize such permits from other states. “The intent is to simplify the process for law-abiding gun owners when they travel to other states,” Cornyn said. “A gun permit issued by a state would be valid in other states just like a state-issued driver’s license.” Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va) announced his opposition, saying that “families have been torn apart by gun violence. Enough is enough. This tragic...

    Source: http://www.facebook.com/VenturaCountySheriff Much attention has been given to the antics of crazy California politicians like Kamala Harris, Kevin de Leon, and Nancy Pelosi, who all advocate for sanctuary city/state policies and call anyone opposed to their view racist or " white supremacist " - and can somehow say with a straight face that this policy doesn't put Americans at risk. But, there are elected officials and law enforcement officers in the state who strongly oppose these policies and, in particular, Senate Bill 54 , which would prohibit law enforcement agencies in the state from using "agency or department moneys,...
