    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...

    ATLANTA — Three Atlanta police officers were hospitalized with gunshot wounds after an altercation that left a suspect dead Saturday evening, authorities said. Officers responded at 5:15 p.m. to a report of an armed man in a commercial area on Fairbanks Street and encountered a man with a handgun and a knife on Desoto Avenue, Atlanta Police Chief Darin Schierbaum said during a news conference. “During that encounter there was a struggle, there was gunfire that resulted in three of our officers being injured. It also resulted in the death of the individual that was armed with the handgun,” Schierbaum...

    Celebrity chef Madison Cowan has relied on soft eviction laws to avoid more than $145,000 in rent payments on his Brooklyn apartment the past four-and-a-half years, his landlord claims. The British-born former champ of the Food Network’s “Chopped” and “Iron Chef” owes 53 months in back rent on a one-bedroom Boerum Hill pad he and his family have occupied since October 2019, according to landlord Gus Sheha. Cowan hasn’t paid a cent of rent since January 2020, relying on legal loopholes like repeatedly appealing eviction orders to remain in the State Street apartment, said the landlord.

    pair of 15-year-old boys were stabbed outside a Bronx McDonald’s Wednesday afternoon — the latest teens caught up in a troubling spate of youth violence in the Big Apple. One of the young victims was knifed in the chest, while the other was slashed on the hand in front of the fast food restaurant at 1600 Boston Road in Charlotte Gardens just before 4 p.m., according to police. The youths were rushed by EMS to NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi with non-life threatening injuries, cops said. Police said it’s unclear what led to the bloodshed, and the attacker was in the...

    (NRLC) You might be forgiven if, in all the hubbub over March’s arguments at the Supreme Court over mifepristone in FDA v. AHM, you forgot that there were other cases regarding abortion pills still winding their way through the federal courts. One of those other cases, Bryant v. Stein, was decided in federal district court in North Carolina at the end of April. It has the potential to impact state legislation on abortion pills going forward. In addition, there was a decision in West Virginia challenging that state’s ability to ban sales of the abortion pill decided late last year...
  • Young Americans Prefer Socialism

    Reason ^ | 9-30-2019 | NICK GILLESPIE
    What explains the rise in warm feelings toward "socialism," especially among younger Americans? Several things, including a basic misunderstanding of what socialism means, the memory of the 2008 financial crisis and Great Recession, and a near-total lack of appreciation for how rapidly the material conditions of American life have improved. Given Karl Marx's emphasis on historical understanding as a vital pre-condition to political change, that last part is deeply ironic.
