The five boroughs had 88 murders in that time period, a significant dip over the 104 in 2023, the outlet said.

    Harris was initially enjoying what she thought was a fun song but it appeared she was clued into the translation of the lyrics by Executive Director Mariana Reyes, who accompanied her on the trip. The song took aim at the vice president, the Biden administration in general and their policies.A half dozen demonstrators performing on the street in front of the vice president signaled support in their song for the Palestinian people amid conflict between Israel and Hamas terrorists in Gaza, as well as for Haiti as gang violence threatens to completely collapse the island's government.'Long live free Palestine and...

    Watching the Defectives ^ | 3/3/2024 | Parker Shannon
    Lawfare is the vengeful exercise of raw political power to punish political enemies. It is unadulterated fascism, and the destruction of the American system of justice. What a week! Consider what has happened this week: SCOTUS delayed Jack Smith's Jan. 6 trial -- possibly until after the election. Judge Cannon is likely to delay the Mar-a-Lago classified documents case at least until the summer. Fani Willis and Nathan Wade are likely to be removed from the racketeering case, delaying and perhaps ending their RICO persecution of Trump. Trump has appealed Letitia James' Draconian penalties to New York Appeals Court which...

    WASHINGTON — President Biden told a group of rabbis on Thursday that he was “raised in the synagogues” of Delaware — after previously claiming to have been raised by the state’s then-tiny Puerto Rican community. “I, you might say, was raised in the synagogues of my state.

That information was not all that surprising given Blinken's desperation. But was Blinken desperation so far along that he even consented to let...
