    Former President Donald Trump addressed mourners and the media outside of slain NYPD officer Jonathan Diller’s wake on Thursday, calling for the “toughening up” of law and order. Diller’s alleged killer, Guy Rivera, had a lengthy rap sheet including 21 prior arrests. “What happened is such a sad event,” Trump told reporters. “It’s happening all too often and we’re just not going to let it happen.” Trump was among the hundreds who turned up to pay their respects to Diller at Massapequa Funeral Home on Long Island. Former President Donald Trump said the senseless death of NYPD cop Jonathan Diller...
  • Alexi Navalny’s widow calls on Russians to rise up against Putin on sham election day

    Yulia Navalnaya, widow of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, called on Russians to join an election day protest at noon on March 17 and to vote against President Vladimir Putin or spoil their ballots. In a YouTube video, Navalnaya said she had drawn hope from the huge crowds that turned out last week for the funeral of her husband, who died in an Arctic penal colony on Feb. 16, and who since then have submerged his grave in a sea of flowers. She urged people to join the March 17 action that Navalny, Russia's best known opposition figure, had called for...

    What would you say about a country that in 2023 saw 75 murders and 153 rapes every day for a grand total of 55,000 rapes and 27,375 murders in one year? I should add that authorities say that many of these crimes go unreported, so those figures are undoubtedly higher. With that said, I think it would be fair to describe this country as a literal hell on earth. This country is South Africa, once called the jewel of the African continent. White farmers and other Whites are getting beaten, raped, and murdered there on an almost daily basis. Too...
  • What Navalny’s death means for Russia – and the rest of the world

    I follow a lot of Russian language accounts on social media. I first realised something had happened on Friday when I saw a Russian listings magazine post a crying emoji with a picture of the face of Navalny, Russia’s leading opposition figure. This was odd. Their posts were usually apolitical – recently about Rothko in Paris, Timothée Chalamet in Wonka and Prince Charles’s health. News of Alexei Navalny’s death hit the Russian-speaking online world moments before it broke across international media. The very first reaction was cryptic and euphemistic. You could sense the thought behind the responses: Is he really...

    Lyudmila Navalnaya, the mother of dead Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, demanded on Tuesday that President Vladimir Putin hand over her son's body so she could bury him. -snip- Speaking in a video filmed front of the prison as small snow flakes swirled in the air, his mother - dressed in black - complained she did not even know where her son's corpse was and demanded Putin give the order to release it.

    Critics of the Russian regime have accused Vladimir Putin of sending spies to disconnect CCTV cameras at a prison complex just days before prominent Kremlin opponent Alexei Navalny died. Several officers from the FSB, Russia’s intelligence service, visited the Polar Wolf prison camp earlier this week, according to activists at the human rights group, before the opposition figure dropped dead aged 47 on Friday. The organisation has also claimed CCTV cameras were shut off at the complex in the hours before, as well as suggesting the speed at which authorities made comments on the incident was deeply suspicious. A...

    Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny’s team declared his death a murder Saturday as authorities claimed his life ended because of a medical condition called “sudden death syndrome.” Navalny, 47, died Friday in Russia’s brutal IK-3 penal colony in remote Kharp, about 1,200 miles northeast of Moscow. “Alexey Navalny was murdered. His death occurred on February 16 at 2:17 p.m. local time, according to the official message to Alexey’s mother,” Navalny’s spokeswoman, Kira Yarmysh wrote on X early Saturday. Russia’s Federal Penitentiary Service originally claimed “the convict” collapsed and died after he “felt unwell” during a walk. “When Alexei’s lawyer and...

    American-Israeli dual national Judith (Judy) Weinstein, 70, was confirmed Thursday to have been murdered by Hamas during its October 7 terror attack, not taken hostage as previously thought. Hamas has possession of her body, along with that of her husband, Gad Haggai, 73, who was likewise thought to have been taken hostage until being confirmed dead earlier in December. Kibbutz Nir Oz, where Weinstein and Haggai lived, issued a statement Thursday: With great sorrow Kibbutz Nir Oz announces the murder of Judy Weinstein. ‎‏Judy was 70 years old, and was a member of Kibbutz Nir Oz.

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it received 31 pages of records in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit from the Department of Homeland Security that show the identity of the companion of Obama’s chef Tafari Campbell as a woman named “Ms. Taylor,” who reported that “[Campbell] fell in the water and struggled for a couple of seconds before giving up and sinking underwater.” The records also show that the Secret Service could not get the first two boats they tried to use to search for Campbell to function and had to use the groundskeeper’s boat.

    A member of a Maryland task force aimed at combating hate crimes published numerous antisemitic social media posts, including claiming that the babies brutally murdered in the Oct. 7 Hamas attack were "fake," and comparing the nation of Israel to Nazi Germany. Zainab Chaudry, an anti-Israel activist who serves as the director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) Maryland office, made the posts in the weeks following Hamas' attack, which saw more than 1,200 people killed, including children and babies, as well as numerous rapes and destruction of property. "I will never be able to understand how the world...

A suspect was captured about an hour and a half after the shooting at Caudill Laboratories, and an all-clear was issued for the campus about two hours after that. No other injuries were reported, school officials said at a briefing Monday afternoon.

    Former President Trump said Thursday that he “totally” disagrees with Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on the death of Ashli Babbitt, a Jan. 6 rioter who was shot and killed by Capitol Police. After Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed on Tuesday that Babbitt had been murdered during the pro-Trump insurrection, McCarthy broke with the Georgia congresswoman, who has become one of his most important supporters within the Republican conference. “I think the police officer did his job,” McCarthy told reporters when asked if he agreed with Greene’s take on Babbitt’s death. Trump fired back in a post on Truth Social, claiming...

    For shame, Speaker McCarthy, for shame! The following quote appeared in a recent posting at The Hill by Mychael Schnell (2/2/23): Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) broke with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Thursday when asked about the death of Ashli Babbitt, who was shot and killed by Capitol police during the Jan. 6, 2021 attack, concluding she was not murdered, as Greene has said. “I think the police officer did his job,” McCarthy told reporters when asked if he agreed with Greene that Babbitt was murdered. --------------- Sadly, or rather, bizarrely, we are to infer from the Speaker's callous...

    I totally disagree with the Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, in that the Police Officer “Thug,” who has had a very checkered past to begin with, was not just “doing his job” when he shot and killed Great Patriot Ashli Babbitt at point blank range. Despite trying to keep him anonymous, shielded, and protected, this MISFIT proudly showed up on NBC Fake Nightly News “bragging” about the killing. He was not a hero but a COWARD, who wanted to show how tough he was. ASHLI BABBITT WAS MURDERED!!!

    Police Captain David Dorn was murdered in 2020 during riots following the death of George Floyd. While reacting to the sentencing of his murderer, his widow Ann Dorn blasted Democrats, “including Rep. Cori Bush for still supporting the ‘defund police’ movement.” In singling out Bush, Dorn cited the congresswoman’s support of anti-police rhetoric on Fox & Friends on Thursday. “I find it funny that she says ‘defund the police.’ But yet, she spends $400,000-$700,000 on security alone just for herself, using police officers to do it. And her own city that she came from is being destroyed by crime. Police...

    Derek Abbott, from the University of Adelaide, says the body of a man found on one of the city's beaches in 1948 belonged to Carl "Charles" Webb, an electrical engineer and instrument maker born in Melbourne in 1905. Last May, South Australia police responded to Abbott's calls to exhume the Somerton man's body and experts at Forensic Science SA started work to try to find the best way to analyze his DNA. But in the end, Abbott, a professor in the Adelaide University School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, claims it was strands of the man's hair trapped in a...

    A body found in a barrel at Lake Mead on Sunday may have been underwater for as long as four decades and more bodies are likely to appear as the lake recedes due to severe drought, according to Las Vegas Metro police.

    FBI Director Christpher Wray addressed the skyrocketing rate of murders against police officers Sunday, saying the surge is far outpacing general violent crime. Wray made the comments during a "60 Minutes" interview on Sunday, saying murders of police officers rose 59% in 2021. The total murder rate rose 29% last year, and the U.S. lost 73 police officers to such attacks in 2021. "Violence against law enforcement in this country is one of the biggest phenomena that I think doesn't get enough attention," Wray said, adding that officers are being murdered at a rate of nearly "one every five days."

    Kicking off the first hearing of the House Select Committee investigating the U.S. Capitol riot, Chairman Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, promised to fully investigate "the facts of what happened on Jan. 6,” calling it “a scene of violence in the citadel of democracy.” But over the next 3½ hours, he and other Democrats, along with their handpicked Republican panelists and police witnesses, never mentioned the most lethal act committed that day — the fatal Capitol Police shooting of unarmed protester Ashli Babbitt. It was the only shot fired during the entire riot.This omission angered Babbitt’s family and a number...
