    Police arrested a man for displaying a poster of soldiers killing Jews at the annual march by local veterans of two SS divisions that made up the Latvian Legion during World War II. The man was arrested Friday morning on the margins of the annual march of the Remembrance Day of the Latvian Legionnaires — soldiers from the 15th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS and the 19th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS (the 1st and 2nd Latvian, respectively.) A handful of veterans flanked by hundreds of supporters waving Latvian flags gathered around Freedom Monument for the march under...

    DENTON, Md. (ABC7) — A US Secret Service Uniformed Division Officer has been arrested and is facing child pornography charges in Caroline County. According to the Maryland State Police, Jeffrey Litteral, 52, was arrested Tuesday evening at his home in Denton. In 2017, an investigator with the Criminal Enforcement Division of the Maryland State Police initially received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about child pornography potentially being uploaded on the Internet, a press release states. After confirming the material was indeed child pornography, the investigator launched an investigation into finding its source. The investigation led...

    CORONA, Calif.—Roberta Gordon never thought she’d still be alive at age 76. She definitely didn’t think she’d still be working. But every Saturday, she goes down to the local grocery store and hands out samples, earning $50 a day, because she needs the money. “I’m a working woman again,” she told me, in the common room of the senior apartment complex where she now lives, here in California’s Inland Empire. Gordon has worked dozens of odd jobs throughout her life—as a house cleaner, a home health aide, a telemarketer, a librarian, a fundraiser—but at many times in her life, she...

    A Louisiana private investigator pleaded guilty on Monday to misusing Donald Trump’s Social Security number in repeated attempts to access the president’s federal tax information before his election last year. Jordan Hamlett, 32, faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine following his guilty plea in federal court. Authorities have said Hamlett failed in his attempts to get Trump’s tax information through a U.S. Department of Education financial aid website. Trump has refused to release his tax returns, bucking an American tradition honored by every president since Jimmy Carter.

    The president is no longer safe on the White House grounds, according to former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, who once guarded presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Bongino made the stunning assessment in an interview Friday with Fox News. It followed an incident last Friday night when a man jumped the White House fence and may have roamed the property for as long as 15 minutes before he was stopped by the Secret Service. Jonathan Tran, who carried two cans of mace, set off multiple alarms, Bongino said, and was even spotted by Secret Service officers, but was...

    he Nazis claimed the double lightning flashes of the SS were 'ancient runes' that extolled the supremacy of the German race. But a new TV documentary has debunked the myth, revealing that Heinrich Himmler paid £1 to an out-of-work illustrator to create them. Walter Heck designed the SS symbol in 1929 and is believed to have copied it from the signs on electricity pylons in the country at the time.

    Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino believes the Trump Tower wiretapping scandal, known as Obamagate by many on social media, is going to “blow wide open this week.” The best-selling author, added that he plans on sharing information on the Obama administration this week with the public. Bongino worked for the administrations of former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama in the Presidential Protection Division. He was a frequent presence on cable news shows throughout the 2016 presidential election season and had an explosive confrontation with CNN’s Don Lemon in defense of Trump. It was so fiery that President...

    Waiting for the SS I was recently cut off by a relative. He is smart, educated, a school teacher, a proud Liberal, and completely separated from reality. In the course of the run-up to the 2016 election, he cried in panic that a Trump victory would absolutely result in Trump’s rounding-up of all us Jews and throwing us into concentration camps to die. His lock-step Democrat insistence that Trump is a Nazi was immune to fact or reason. As a Boston-based school teacher (and son of a school-teacher) he had been long convinced of every Liberal lie and fantasy....

    The U.S. Secret Service plans to raise the height of the White House security fence by 5 feet and add a new concrete foundation to reduce the risk of fence-jumpers, according to a copy of an agency report obtained by the News4 I-Team. The agency, along with the National Park Service, said it intends to begin building a “taller, stronger” fence to protect the White House grounds by 2018. Details of the plan were included in an audio recording of a briefing made by federal officials, which was released to the I-Team Wednesday. The same briefing is expected to be...

    The Secret Service’s assistant director urged that unflattering information the agency had in its files about a congressman critical of the service should be made public, according to a government watchdog report released Wednesday. “Some information that he might find embarrassing needs to get out,” Assistant Director Edward Lowery wrote in an e-mail to a fellow director on March 31, commenting on an internal file that was being widely circulated inside the service. “Just to be fair.” Two days later, a news Web site reported that Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, had applied to be...

    Instead of accepting their application for benefits to begin at age 70, the agency's representative instead gives the person a six-month retroactive payment! This act resets the person's entitlement back to what it was six months prior and wipes out half a year of Delayed Retirement Credits (DRCs). The person loses 4 percent off their monthly benefit check in exchange for a six-month lump-sum payment they didn't ask for and don't want. ... "Based on SSA regulations, retroactivity is automatically applied to applications filed after FRA unless retroactivity is expressly restricted by the claimant," he wrote. "If this is a...

    The most extraordinary things about this truly incredible tale of World War II are that it hasn’t been told before in English, and that it hasn’t already been made into a blockbuster Hollywood movie. Here are the basic facts: on 5 May 1945—five days after Hitler’s suicide—three Sherman tanks from the 23rd Tank Battalion of the U.S. 12th Armored Division under the command of Capt. John C. ‘Jack’ Lee Jr., liberated an Austrian castle called Schloss Itter in the Tyrol, a special prison that housed various French VIPs, including the ex-prime ministers Paul Reynaud and Eduard Daladier and former commanders-in-chief...
