    HARARE, Zimbabwe — A new documentary on massacres by Zimbabwe's military … The screening in the capital, Harare, would have been almost impossible under former leader Robert Mugabe, who led the country for 37 years and resigned following military intervention in November. President Emmerson Mnangagwa, a longtime Mugabe loyalist and enforcer who succeeded him, has tolerated documentaries and plays critical of the government amid promises of a "flowering of democracy." But none has taken such direct aim at Mnangagwa as the new documentary on the army operation he supported as state security minister between 1983 and 1987. "Gukurahundi genocide: 36...

    An 18-year-old man wanted in the murder of a Georgia cop was shot and killed by police Monday after they encountered him holding a lawnmower blade in a shed, police said, ending a massive manhunt two days after the 30-year-old officer was murdered. Authorities located Tafahree Maynard on Monday morning after officers began investigating a tip the suspect was spotted in the Snellville area within the last 12 hours. Officers encountered Maynard in a shed and he “failed to comply" with verbal commands, Police Chief Butch Ayers said in a news conference on Monday. An officer reportedly deployed a Taser...

    Two days after her parents' mysterious death, Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs remained "endangered" -- but her whereabouts continued to prove elusive for the investigators combing the country for the 13-year-old. Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said in a Tuesday news conference that Jayme is believed to be in danger and emphasized she is not a suspect in the death of her parents, James and Denise Closs. He also dismissed the idea Jayme had run away from her home in Barron, located about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis.
  • Saudi Arabia to 'admit killing Jamal Khashoggi in botched interrogation'

    Saudi Arabia is to admit journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed in its consulate in Istanbul in a botched interrogation, according to reports on Monday night. Officials from the kingdom were expected to lay out a series of events which blamed intelligence operatives, and shielded Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince, from responsibility over the journalist's death. It came as Donald Trump, after speaking to Saudi Arabia's King Salman, suggested "rogue killers" could have been behind the death of Mr Khashoggi, who was a US permanent resident and wrote columns for the Washington Post.
  • Abortion Activists Slam Pope Francis For Calling Abortion Like “Hiring a Hitman”

    Pope Francis is facing criticism from abortion activists across Europe this week after he likened abortion to “hiring a hitman” to kill unborn babies. The pope made the impromptu remark Wednesday at the Vatican. ADF reports the pope’s abortion comments were not in the text of his prepared weekly homily. Instead, he appears to have spoken from the heart about the pervasive violence against unborn babies. “Is it right to hire a hitman to solve a problem? You cannot, it is not right to kill a human being, regardless of how small it is, to solve a problem. It is...

    The crimes of abortionist and serial killer Kermit Gosnell are, by now, well known. But another abortionist is currently under investigation by the FBI: Douglas Karpen, who has come to be known as the “Texas Gosnell.” In 2011, Karpen appeared before the Texas Medical Board following multiple complaints, but they were all dismissed. In 2013, however, the voices against him grew louder as staffers from his abortion facility began to come forward, accusing him of committing grisly late-term abortions, after which babies were sometimes born alive. Instead of getting them medical attention, as federal law requires, Karpen would instead —...

    The Turkish newspaper Sabah has revealed that the journalist Jamal Khasshogi, who was murdered in Istanbul, had entered the Saudi consulate with an Apple iWatch smartwatch that documented his interrogation and murder. According to the report, Khasshogi first approached the consul's room and was then dragged by two senior intelligence officers to a second room where he was interrogated and tortured until he was murdered. On the recordings are shouts of Khasshogi and the security men. He was then dragged into a third room at the consulate, where his body was dismembered. According to the report, the Saudis realized that...

    FULL TITLE: Review: 'Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,' a none-too-subtle take on real-life courtroom drama You can say one thing for “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” — it will never be mistaken for having a liberal bias. A sensationalistic police procedural/courtroom drama chronicling the criminal investigation and subsequent 2013 conviction of Kermit Gosnell (Earl Billings), an African American abortion doctor charged with the murder of three infants and one mother, the film adopts a sanctimonious tone that’s anything but subtle. What initially began as a probe into the dispensing of illegal prescriptions takes a...

    Former Panthers receiver Rae Carruth will be released from prison on Oct. 22, less than 18 years after he was convicted for conspiracy to commit murder, shooting into an occupied vehicle and using an instrument to destroy an unborn child. Carruth's ex-girlfriend Cherica Adams – who was seven months pregnant with Carruth's son – was shot while driving her BMW in Charlotte on Nov. 16, 1999. The shooter was hired by Carruth.
  • Gosnell Movie Hits Hard

    10/09/2018 11:47:55 PM PDT · by karnage · 23 replies
    I went to the red carpet premiere of "Gosnell" tonight, at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills -- within shrieking distance of many bastions of showbiz liberalism: talent agencies, law firms, movie studios. But the film itself was made without the support of the entertainment-industrial complex. In fact, it was financed largely by small donors on social media. It tells the tale, in deadpan policier fashion, of the investigation and trial of Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who initially attracted the attention of law enforcement not because he was killing born-alive infants, but rather because his unlicensed staff members were purchasing...

    Director Nick Searcy believes his new film “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” is not a political piece but a true story about one of the most horrific abortion cases in America. In an interview with LifeZette, Searcy (“The Shape of Water,” “Justified”) said Hollywood took the film as political, though, and refused to go near it. “I believe ‘Gosnell’ is an important, unique film about an event that modern-day Hollywood would not go near,” Searcy said. “I pray it will make an impact. We tried to be honest, and we put the resources we had available to...

    H.H. Holmes used to be considered America’s most prolific serial killer. He is said to have murdered 230 victims during the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. Gary Ridgeway, the Green River Killer, is suspected of killing more than 90 women between 1982 and the early ‘90s. Yet both are dwarfed by a killer whose victims began disappearing in the 1980s. For years, his murders went largely unnoticed. Then, in 2010, the Philadelphia police, Drug Enforcement Administration, and Federal Bureau of Investigation raided his place of business. They were looking for evidence of an illegal drug operation. What they found was...

Laqwanda Villaronga was held without bail at her arraignment Monday after a not guilty plea was entered on her behalf to a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - Three people are in jail, charged in the murder of Greater Memphis Chamber President, Phil Trenary. Memphis Police arrested 18-year-old Quandarius Richardson, 22-year-old McKinney Wright Jr. And 16-year-old Racanisha Wright. Neighbors tell Local 24 that Treanary's death was shocking. However, they are not letting that horrific shooting run them out of their neighborhood. They say their safety is their number one concern, so these arrests do bring peace, but they say it's a situation where no one wins. "Of course, we were concerned is this a targeted killing or was this random violence," said Fontaine Pearson,...

    A Hennepin County judge says the case against former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor will go forward. The former Minneapolis police officer shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk Damond last year. The Australian native had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault behind her southwest Minneapolis home. Noor’s attorneys say he acted reasonably when he shot Ruszczyk Damond. They’re asking the judge to dismiss the charges. However, prosecutors say Noor acted recklessly in using deadly force. Noor’s defense attorneys filed motions they hoped would lead to the case against their client being dismissed. Instead, they sat with the former Minneapolis...

    Everyone who comes to America has a dream. But some of those dreams are good. And others are truly horrifying. Here's one DREAMER's dream. And a family's nightmare. An illegal immigrant from Mexico, accused of killing one person and injuring two others aboard a fishing vessel over the weekend, was reportedly allowed to stay in the U.S. as a DACA recipient. Fox News has exclusively learned that Franklin Freddy Meave Vazquez, 27, was an illegal alien in the U.S. until he was granted deferred action under the DACA program on Nov. 30, 2013. The program is aimed at children brought...

    NATCHITOCHES, La. - A Louisiana woman is accused of asking her girlfriend to kidnap and kill her 7-month-old son in July, a crime carried out when the boy was doused with gasoline and burned to death. Levi Cole Ellerbe died hours after suffering second- and third-degree burns over 90 percent of his body, according to the Alexandria Town Talk. The boy’s mother, Hannah Nicole Barker, was in court Friday for a preliminary hearing, at which Lt. Jeremy Swisher, with the Louisiana State Fire Marshal’s Office, laid out the case against Barker. Barker, 23, is charged as a principal to first-degree...
