The vehicle was stopped after matching the description of a car connected to an armed robbery and shooting. As Runnels approached the vehicle, Martin exited the car and proceeded to fire two shots at Runnels....

    We are living inside a Universe that’s so complex that if we can grasp what’s happening for a moment, we’ll fall down on our knees and cry in surrender to its marvelous beauty! Science just barely starts to scratch the surface to the nature of reality and still, its discoveries are more shocking than we were able to imagine. It proves of quantum entanglement, unified field of consciousness, free energy, superhuman abilities, singularity, parallel universes and alternate realities. All of this is so mind boggling that you would never think a kid can understand. But maybe we need a kid,...

    CHARLOTTE, NC Inside the Mecklenburg County Jail, Zerrell Fuentes came up with a plan to have his wife, mother and three underage girls help him make bail, prosecutors say. Now all three members of the Charlotte family face an even longer stay behind bars. An eight-count indictment issued Friday accuses Fuentes, 22, wife Brianna Wright Fuentes, 24, and his mother Tanya Fuentes, 53, with conspiring to traffic the girls for commercial sex acts in Myrtle Beach. All three face multiple sex-trafficking offenses. The two-week operation involved three Charlotte girls, all under 18, whom Ferrell recruited while he was in jail,...
  • The ‘hotbed of anti-Semitism’ isn’t a foreign country. It’s US college campuses, a new report says.

    As violent attacks against Jews worldwide drop to their lowest in more than 10 years, the United States, particularly college campuses, have been the “hotbed of anti-Semitism,” according to a new report. In the United States, campuses, which the report describes as “a hotbed of anti-Semitism,” saw a 45 percent increase in anti-Jewish sentiments. The AMCHA Initiative, which investigates anti-Semitism on college campuses, had a similar finding. Researchers who looked at dozens of public and private colleges and universities found 287 anti-Semitic incidents during the first half of 2016. That’s a 45 percent increase from incidents reported during the first...

    America’s most iconic chocolate, Hershey’s, is slimming down. Hershey announced earlier this week that half of its candy bars and candy products will drop to 200 calories or less. They expect the shift to be fully in place by the year 2022.In a press release, the company stated that it expects to meet the goal in two ways. First of all, they will be reformulating their products. Additionally, they will adjust the size of certain items.The changes will affect standard and king-sized items. We can’t help but wonder if this means they’ll merely be getting smaller, which at first is...

    President Donald Trump’s first one hundred days in office will end April 29. As such, former President Barack Obama’s current visit to Chicago offers him an opportunity to criticize his successor. But will he take it? On Sunday and at the invitation of Arne Duncan, Obama met with a group of Chicago’s Create Real Destiny Program, which provides services for at-risk youth. CRED was founded by the former Education Secretary. At 12:00 ET on Monday, Obama will speak to an invitation-only crowd of college students, organizers and activists at the University of Chicago, the former president’s old stomping grounds. Billed...

    On April 15, a pro-Trump, pro-free-speech rally at University of California, Berkeley, descended into violent mayhem after radical far-leftists — members of the organization Antifa — began to attack the peacefully assembled crowd. Antifa, which stands for “anti-fascist action,” is a network of loosely affiliated far-left anarchist and communist groups that orchestrate violent protests and attacks on populists, conservatives, and anyone else its members deem to be “fascists” or “Nazis.” “Anyone who tries to hold any sort of right-wing event literally gets beat up by militant communists in the street.” Antifa was formed originally in Germany in the 1980s, its...

    California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D-Los Angeles) said last Tuesday that “half his family” was in the country illegally, using false documents, and eligible for deportation under President Trump’s new executive order against “sanctuary” jurisdictions. De Léon, who introduced the bill, made his remarks at a hearing in Sacramento on SB54, the bill to make California a “Sanctuary State.” He said (at 1:27:34 in the video that follows): … I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under [President Donald Trump’s] executive order, because if they got a false Social Security...

    ...Decades of chain-smoking caught up with her last year — vaping came too late for her — leading to an ordeal from which she shielded nearly everyone who loved her. In her final days she clutched a rosary while surrounded by her devoted husband Jim, her adored sons Phil and John, her sisters Mary Ann, Virginia, and Rosemary, and many friends. Her great regret was that she would not be able to spend more time doting on her grandchildren. She died at noon on this Divine Mercy Sunday.
