    Dozens of migrants are thought to have died after their boat capsized in the Mediterranean off the coast of Tunisia. At least 50 people died in the incident, with 16 survivors, the UN's International Organization for Migration says. But Tunisian state media report that 70 migrants drowned about 74km (46 miles) off Sfax, south of the capital Tunis. Tunisian officials reportedly believe the ship set off from Zuwara in Libya.
  • Joe Biden is the unwitting architect of the sex-panicked hellscape he’s now living in

    The Post Millennial ^ | April 3, 2019 | Diana Davison and Barrett Wilson
    Joe Biden made the issue of sexual assault on campus his own. He forced a new interpretation of “Title IX” onto universities that required them to investigate and dole out unfair verdicts in sexual harassment and assault accusations. Unqualified bureaucrats took the place of police, lawyers, and judges, and as a result, a rash of false allegations were championed by victim advocates who had no understanding of the law or respect for due process. It’s been almost a decade of this appalling overreach. The lawsuits on behalf of these falsely accused young men and women are still working their way...

  • Are these Catholic priests victims of frenzy to convict? (Australia)

    John Francis Tyrrell walked free from jail last week, an innocent man ruined. Yet another Catholic priest falsely convicted. Just last December, another Catholic, former Adelaide archbishop Philip Wilson, was also freed. Also wrongly convicted, said a judge. Two such cases in just three months should make many media commentators pause. Could Cardinal George Pell be the third victim of what seems a frenzy to convict accused Catholic priests for the sins of their church? ..... But let me tell you about Tyrrell. He, too, was unanimously convicted by a jury of sexual abuse on the word of a single...

    The NYPD is warning police officers about a possible threat from the MS-13 gang, particularly when they are off-duty. CBS2’s Dick Brennan reports that in a bulletin the NYPD put out this alert: “Members of MS-13 are looking to ‘hit’ NYPD police officers, specifically in the Brentwood/Central Islip area as well as possibly Patchogue.” The bulletin says that the gang members would carry out the attacks on off-duty officers “in order to gain street credibility.”

    The brother of Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos' girlfriend, former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez, criticized the tech billionaire's decision to try to preempt the National Enquirer's scoop on their affair. Michael Sanchez told Fox News' "MediaBuzz" Sunday that he had been negotiating with the Enquirer's parent company, American Media Inc., to soften a forthcoming story on the couple's extramarital affair when Bezos' longtime security adviser Gavin de Becker "launched World War III against AMI" by advising Bezos to undermine the scoop with what Sanchez called a "misleading" tweet about Bezos' divorce from wife MacKenzie. "Everything that Gavin has advised...

    That's one aspect of this fiasco that keeps ticking Bezos off - there's this unspoken meme out there that the richer you are, the smarter you must be. (Look at guys like Bill Gates or the founders of Google - smart computer guys, right?) And as The World's Richest Person, Bezos was happy to bask in this implied adulation too. But the fact that he would take "intimate self-pix" and send them over electronic media - which everyone, even poor peons like us, knows is hackable - shows really dumb behavior. (Bill Gates and Donald Trump never did this). Sure...

    Virginia politics descended further into chaos on Wednesday, and Democrats in the capital grew more dismayed by the possibility that a trio of scandals involving their top three statewide officials had laid waste to years of work building up the Democratic Party in the commonwealth. The controversies have created a pseudo-standoff between scandal-plagued Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring, all of whom are fighting to hang on to their jobs as public outrage grows around each of them. None of them wants to resign first, creating a scenario where all of them could hold...

  • Cuomo announces income tax revenues have dropped by $2.3B

    New York Post ^ | 2/4/2019 | Carl Campanile
    Cuomo’s preliminary analysis claims much of the impact is coming from a drop in revenues from the state’s highest income earners most impacted by the loss of write-offs of state and local tax deductions, known as SALT. The federal law approved by President Trump and the then-GOP controlled Congress limited SALT deductions to $10,000. The loss of revenue from New York’s wealthiest puts New York in a bind because the state relies on a progressive income tax system that taxes the rich at a higher rate. One percent of the state’s top income earners provide 46 percent of the state’s...

    ANALYSIS — It took 35 days, but President Donald Trump ultimately caved to Democratic demands that he reopen the government before they’d entertain negotiations on border security. And in 21 more, Trump will have to decide whether to give in again, because he’s not likely to get what he wants. Trump agreed Friday to back a three-week continuing resolution that will reopen the government through Feb. 15. But he is not giving up on his quest to secure funding for wall along the southern border. “We really have no choice but to build a powerful wall or steel barrier,” Trump...

    According to WXIX, Cody Lutz, his fiance Lucy and soon-to-be sister-in-law decided to build an over-sized snowman in the front yard after a big snowstorm hit the area. “We were playing in the snow, she’s from Mississippi so this is the most snow she’s ever seen in her entire life. I’m from Buffalo so this is no big deal,” Lutz told WXIX. “I love the snow!” But to make the snowman, Lutz decided to use a large tree stump in their yard for the base and covered it with snow. When Lutz came home on Monday, he saw tire tracks...

    A federal judge has ruled that the $350 million misconduct lawsuit, filed by Trump ally Jerome Corsi against Robert Mueller, will move forward. On Thursday, Judge Richard Leon ordered Corsi's case against Mueller to be randomly assigned to another judge. Corsi, a longtime associate of former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone, is suing Mueller, the Justice Department, and others, for $350m over prosecutorial misconduct, leaking confidential information to press, and unconstitutional surveillance.
