    On September 11, 1962, a German scientist vanished. The basic facts were simple: Heinz Krug had been at his office, and he never came home... ..Krug was murdered as part of an Israeli espionage plot to intimidate the German scientists working for Egypt. Moreover, the most astounding revelation is the Mossad agent who fired the fatal gunshots: Otto Skorzeny, one of the Israeli spy agency’s most valuable assets, was a former lieutenant colonel in Nazi Germany’s Waffen-SS and one of Adolf Hitler’s personal favorites among the party’s commando leaders.

    Instead of uniformed, regiments of soldiers fighting each other on a well-defined battlefield, the new strategy was to have some small roving bands of guerilla fighters sporadically attacking different priority targets and then disappear into the background. No large fighting units, only small units or cells ... The trail of training guerilla warfare and subversive tactics may have started in Germany at the end of World War II, but it advanced into Egypt.... after the war with Skorzeny as a paid consultant. Eventually it spread to Al Qaeda through the efforts of Skorzeny, his subordinates and Yasser Arafat.The basic focus...

    'He was Hitler's favourite Nazi commando, famously rescuing Mussolini from an Italian hilltop fortress, and was known as "the most dangerous man in Europe". After World War Two, he landed in Argentina and became a bodyguard for Eva Perón, with whom he was rumoured to have had an affair. So when Otto Skorzeny arrived in Ireland in 1959, having bought a rural farmhouse in County Kildare, it caused much intrigue.'

It's unclear how long she had been missing. The Webb County Sheriff's Office took the driver into custody. No further information was available.

    Gov. Greg Abbott ordered the gradual reopening of Texas businesses amid the coronavirus outbreak. Here’s some of what we can expect under phase one, which will continue until at least May 18: What can reopen? All retail stores, malls, restaurants, movie theaters, libraries and museums must limit customers to 25% of their listed occupancy. Grocery stores, gas stations and other essential services that have already been open have no occupancy limits. What remains closed? Public swimming pools, bars, gyms, cosmetology salons, massage businesses, bowling alleys, video arcades, and tattoo, and piercing studios cannot yet open. Abbott’s order, unveiled Monday, says...

    Two leaked tapes have emerged on the internet where Kiev-appointed governor allegedly threatens an ex-presidential candidate who called for a referendum. The official may also be behind the Odessa massacre and Mariupol shootings, the leak adds. On the first tape, which appeared on May 14, an oligarch and governor of the city of Dnepropetrovsk in southeastern Ukraine, Igor Kolomoisky, allegedly called ex-presidential candidate Oleg Tsarev and started threatening him. He told Tsarev to leave Ukraine immediately, saying it was in connection with the killing of Bogdan Shlemkevich, a soldier from Ukraine’s National Guard on May 9 in Mariupol, southeastern Ukraine....

    Police were warned that the gunman who killed seven people and wounded 25 in Texas last month was planning an attack eight years ago, according to newly revealed police reports. Seth Ator’s mother reported to cops in February 2011 that her son was refusing to take his mental health medication and had threatened to kill himself in a shootout with police, CNN reported. The worried mom shared a recording with cops, in which Ator declared “911 will bow down before me.” When officers in Amarillo, Texas, showed up to her home in 2011, they found what they interpreted as preparations...

    Trying his best to raise the profile of a Democratic presidential campaign consistently polling in the 1-3 percent range, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke has adopted the favorite strategy of 14-year-old’s arguing with their parents: the F-bomb. The O’Rourke campaign recently released a t-shirt that displays the text “This Is F*cked Up” six times followed by “End Gun Violence Now” and “Beto for America.” The quote references a statement O’Rourke made at an appearance in Fairfax Station, Virginia, after hearing of the massacre in Odessa, Texas, that left seven dead and 22 injured. “Not sure how many gunmen. We don’t know how...

    Over the Labor Day weekend, Seth Aaron Ator shot and killed seven people. He wounded more than 20 others in his senseless rampage. Police killed him during his attack. Ator was a man marked with mental illness. As they searched his home, police noted that this man was on a downward spiral, which apparently culminated when he was fired from his job the day he committed his heinous crime. As the anti-gun Left mobilized again, many questions remained. How did Ator get a rifle? He failed a previous background check via mental health adjudication. Well, it seems Ator obtained his firearms...

    Details are beginning to emerge about the gunman who killed seven and injured at least 19 others during a shooting rampage in Odessa and Midland, Texas on Saturday. The suspect, identified as 36-year-old Seth Ator, had a criminal record dating back to his teenage years.

He avoided jail time but received two years of probation according to public records, which indicate the crimes took place in McLennan County. Adjudication was deferred in the case, which can be granted to first-time offenders and allows a conviction...
