    A TikTok star on trial for shooting dead his estranged wife and her lover told jurors he “snapped” after seeing them cuddling on the couch — and just couldn’t stop spraying bullets at them. Ali Abulaban, 32, took to the stand to testify in his own defense Wednesday after being charged over the October 2021 slayings of his wife, Ana Abulaban, 28, and her friend Rayburn Cadenas Barron, 29, in San Diego, NBC7 reported. The social media personality copped to punching his wife three times in the face in an earlier argument in which she claimed to have slept with...
  • Why You Wouldn’t Survive Life in Nazi Germany

    05/22/2024 11:17:53 AM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 36 replies
    As the sun set on a shattered Europe in the aftermath of the First World War, the birth pangs of a nightmarish reality were felt across Germany. From these turbulent times emerged the National Socialist German Workers' Party, colloquially known as the Nazis. Rising to full power in 1933 under the malevolent leadership of Adolf Hitler and his cadre of ruthless lieutenants like Heinrich Himmler and Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Germany erected an edifice of tyranny, intolerance, and unparalleled cruelty. Picture this: the year is 1939, and you are a resident of Berlin. Kristallnacht, the infamous "Night of Broken Glass," occurred...

    Florida law enforcement officials arrested 23 juveniles and six adults after a wild brawl erupted outside a Brandon skating rink when a party was canceled on Saturday night. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a call from an off-duty deputy at Astro Skate at about 9:20 p.m. on Saturday, requesting help with a large crowd that was fighting in the parking lot. Investigators learned the fight broke out after a planned party was canceled when the individuals hosting the private party failed to hire an off-duty deputy for the event, which Astro Skate requires. Since the requirement...

    May 16 (Reuters) - Democratic President Joe Biden and Republican former President Donald Trump plan to face off in a presidential debate on June 27 and another Sept. 10 ahead of a Nov. 5 election, part of a tradition marked by some of the most memorable moments of modern U.S. political history: - 1960: The first televised debate pitted Democratic nominee John F. Kennedy against Republican Vice President Richard Nixon, who was recovering from a hospital visit and had a 5 o'clock shadow, having refused makeup. The 70 million viewers focused on what they saw, not what they heard. Kennedy...

    When I was offered the role of Ronald Reagan’s longtime confidant Edwin Meese in “Reagan,” playing opposite Dennis Quaid as the 40th president, I was excited. I asked our producer, Mark Joseph, if it would be all right if I reached out to Meese and he replied, “We can set that up.” I was pleasantly surprised and immediately started to prepare my questions for the interview. The outcome was that Reagan’s former counselor and U.S. attorney general spent an hour with me on a Zoom session. His insights were helpful and as I prepared myself for the role, I read...

    The central US is bracing for what could be a potentially dangerous end to the weekend as forecasters track the threat of severe weather on Sunday, including the potential for a derecho that could sweep across portions of Kansas and Oklahoma with destructive wind gusts higher than 100 mph and baseball-sized hail. This comes on the heels of another deadly derecho that barreled across Texas and Louisiana on Thursday, blasting the Houston metro area with winds up to 100 mph that left at least seven people dead and more than 1 million customers without power.

    The callous Citi Bike rider who attacked two Orthodox Jewish boys in Brooklyn is shown in new surveillance footage released by the NYPD on Friday — as the department probes the violence as a possible hate crime. The victims, 11 and 13 — dressed traditionally as they played with several others on Franklin Avenue near Myrtle Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant — were both targeted Sunday night when the rider spotted them as he pedaled down the street. “Get off the sidewalk,” the man, believed to be between 18 and 20 years old, allegedly snarled at the kids as he rode past...

    Adnan Deumic, a 25-year-old London-based trader at Bank of America died Thursday evening — just two weeks after the death of Leo Lukenas III, a banker who had been working 100-hour work weeks at the financial giant, The Post has learned. Deumic was playing in a casual “five-a-side” charity soccer tournament with other finance employees when he fell suddenly and was administered CPR, a source with knowledge of the matter said. While the cause of death is unknown, this person told The Post cardiac arrest is suspected. “The death of our teammate is a tragedy, and we are shocked by...
  • The proper name of wokeism is critical constructivism.

    There's a right name for the "Woke" ideology, and it's critical constructivism. Critical constructivist ideology is what you "wake up" to when you go Woke. Reading this book, which originally codified it in 2005, is like reading a confession of Woke ideology. Let's talk about it.

    A teen robbery crew ambushed more than a dozen victims — most around their own age — during a months-long violent mugging spree in and around the Bronx’s Claremont Park, police said this week. Three boys, 13, 14 and 17, plus an 18-year-old, Sincere Johnson, have been arrested in connection to the string of callous crimes that began back in January, the NYPD said — adding cops are still hunting for at least two more suspects. Most of the victims — some of whom were punched or threatened with knives during the muggings — were teenagers, as young as 14,...

    Utah farm boy Dylan Rounds’ cause of death was revealed Wednesday as the “killer squatter” accused in the disappearance and death of the teen in 2022 pleaded guilty to murder. James Brenner, appearing in Utah’s First District Court for a preliminary hearing, pleaded guilty to a felony murder charge and two counts of possession of a firearm by a restricted person related to Rounds’ disappearance on Memorial Day weekend two years ago. During the preliminary hearing, Rounds’ cause of death was revealed as a gunshot wound to the head. As part of a plea deal, Brenner’s first-degree felony aggravated murder...

  • The Diabolical Things Benito Mussolini Did During His Reign

    05/15/2024 11:37:45 AM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 38 replies
    Beneath the azure skies of the Mediterranean, a dark cloud of tyranny and violence gathered. This was Fascist Italy, a nation where Benito Mussolini's iron-fisted rule smothered the voice of dissent and liberty. It was a time marked by the infamous years between the 1920s and 1940s, where the boot of fascism stomped upon the face of humanity. One cannot forget the bombing of Guernica on April 26, 1937, a horrific act of aggression during the Spanish Civil War. Orchestrated by the German Luftwaffe with support from the Italian Aviazione Legionaria and the Corpo Truppe Volontarie, which comprised regular army...

    A “woke” Washington, DC, judge is facing backlash after he opted to cut loose an 18-year-old accused of firing more than two dozen rounds from an AR-15 into a car full of people. Lloyd U. Nolan Jr., a judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, last week ordered Amonte Moody to be released on house arrest ahead of his trial — despite acknowledging that the teen’s alleged actions could have killed someone. Moody, who was slapped with charges including assault with a dangerous weapon, had allegedly sprayed 26 shots at an SUV carrying four people on Independence...
