    The Knoxville office of 2020 democratic presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was vandalized overnight Thursday. WVLT News Friday morning witnessed the front doors of the office painted with expletives and posters that featured the words "authoritarian," "classist" and "oligarch."

    An international organization of environmental protestors dug up the lawn of Trinity College, Cambridge, as part of a week-long series of demonstrations for fossil fuel divestment. Extinction Rebellion protestors dug channels into the turf of Trinity College’s 16th-century great gate with shovels and pitchforks and planted their flags. “Trinity College must cut ties with fossil fuel companies and stop trying to hawk off nature for profit,” the organization’s Facebook page says. “Oh, and it should take the opportunity to replace the lawn with flowers. Spring is just around the corner after all.”

    A group of women whose lives were ruined after being coerced into participating in pornography has just gotten some small measure of vindication in a civil suit against the pornographers. According to The Washington Post, a California judge has tentatively ordered a pornography company to pay $13 million to 22 young women after ruling that they were tricked and inappropriately pressured to make the videos which did not, as promised, stay offline. The ruling, given last Thursday, was the latest development in the women’s years-long legal battle against the owners of GirlsDoPorn, a San Diego-based business that made millions producing...
  • [VANITY]: Need help on buying a camera to catch the coprophagic food waste exit who stole my car's Trump sticker

    Believe it or not, FIVE Trump paraphernalia stores recently opened here in Massachusetts. I went to visit one three days ago, and purchased a magnetic $5.00 Trump 2020 bumper sticker to put on my car. I knew that eventually some lefty might remove it. However, I didn't really think that in less than 24 hours someone would steal it from my OWN apartment parking lot! Anyway, I want to buy a (cheap) video camera that I can put up in my car so that I can catch the bastard when again put up my spare Trump sticker. The thing is,...

    Unknown vandals destroyed 40 of 61 pro-life memorial crosses and stacked them in two piles on Oct. 12 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Buckingham, Pa.

The vandals also stole two signs saying “stop surgical abortions.” Pastor Msgr. Joseph Gentili wrote a letter to his parishioners regarding the horrific incident. He explained that this crime is one of two acts of vandalism occurring on the church’s campus over the past two weeks. The first...

    A pro-life display memorializing the unborn victims of abortion was destroyed by vandals Saturday outside a Catholic church in Pennsylvania. The report is the latest in a growing string of harassment, assaults, vandalism and other incidents targeting pro-lifers.

The 61 crosses in the display symbolize the 61 million babies who have been aborted since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion on demand in 1973. The pastor Rev. Monsignor Joseph P. Gentili said 40 of...
  • Paralympian glues himself to the top of British Airways jet as Extinction Rebellion invades London

    An Extinction Rebellion protester glued himself to the top of a British Airways plane at London City Airport today. The man, identified by Extinction Rebellion as former Paralympic cyclist James Brown, was seen clinging to the aircraft in a video streamed online by the protest group. Mr Brown, who is visually impaired, was arrested at Heathrow last month after a protest which saw some Extinction Rebellion activists try to fly a drone near the airport. The 54-year-old, who won a bronze medal at London 2012, glued himself to the top of a British Airways Embraer 190 jet. “Here I am on...

    Climate change activists' plan to spray fake blood on the Treasury did not get off to the best start. Extinction Rebellion protesters used a hose from an old fire engine to spray 1,800 litres liquid at the 100 year-old building, but they quickly lost control of the powerful water jet. Protesters say they are "highlighting the inconsistency between the UK government’s insistence that the UK is a world leader in tackling climate breakdown, and the vast sums it pours into fossil fuel exploration". The Met Police said five men and three women had been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage.

    Catholicism preaches forgiveness, but this might be a tough ask. The face of a Virgin Mary statue outside a Downtown Jersey City church was found covered with dog feces and the depraved vandal added a cigarette to the desecration. The vandalism was reported by a parishioner who was entering St. Michael Church on Ninth Street just before the daily midday Mass, said the Rev. Thomas Quinn, the pastor. “I was shocked, saddened and angry,” Quinn said. “Without a doubt it was the work of someone who is emotionally disturbed. Still, there was some degree of deliberation there.”

According to Father George Tsoukalas, the rector of the parish, the police and mayor of Lynn arrived on the scene and with great regret, declared that this shameful incident was not only against the church, but against the entire city of Lynn, as Romfea reported. “Somebody has got a sick...

    A man was arrested for defacing the iconic “Charging Bull” statue in Manhattan’s Financial District early Saturday, police said. Witnesses spotted Tevon Varlack, 42, of Texas, repeatedly whacking the bull’s right horn with a large unknown metal object while yelling at about 12:30 a.m., authorities said. It’s unclear what Varlack was muttering during his rampage on the popular bronze sculpture, but his attack left visible gashes on the bull’s right horn.

    Rabbi Netanel Louie leads the Hebrew Discovery Center, a small Orthodox Jewish synagogue in Los Angeles county that has endured multiple acts of violence in the past few years.

Recently, in the middle of the night a vandal threw a can of white paint at the synagogue, defacing the front entrance to the building. This isn’t the first time the Hebrew Discovery Center has been the target of hateful acts because of who they are or what they believe. A couple of years earlier, a man walked in while...

    French police reported 129 thefts and 877 acts of vandalism in Catholic spaces in 2018, but neither the Church nor French media are calling attention to the widespread incidents, reported RealClearInvestigations Wednesday. “We do know that the government has downplayed the official figures for years … The French government and media seem to be mostly complicit in their silence, perhaps because the Church and Christianity is seen as a historically powerful majority,” Ellen Fantini of the Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination Against Christians in Europe told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an email Thursday. The 2018 numbers tell just...

The jihad advances with impunity, and the powers of the world cower before it, portray Muslims as the true victims, and kowtow to its enablers and allies....
