In a shift in messaging, the longtime supporter and early endorser of the president advised him to focus on the future of the country, not the potential defeat.

    More than 70 bandits have been arrested three or more times in the last six months for muggings and armed robberies, and many are on the streets as judges give them multiple shots at freedom. Among them is teenager Anderson Ortiz, who was sprung three times this spring following arrests in Queens and Brooklyn — only to go on and violently mug an elderly Asian couple in May, according to police and court records. Cops say Ortiz, 19, grabbed the 63-year-old male victim from behind as he walked along 60th Street near Bay Parkway, Brooklyn, punched him several times in...
  • Trump Pence Signs disappering.

    Asking all Freepers In AZ all Trump Pence signs are disappearing. Most of them overnight, some last 2-3 days. None last a week. It must be an organized effort to get all the Trump signs. It is not just some vandalism as usual, it is an effort to seek and steal all the signs. Apparently some guys running around in the night? I heard it is statewide. Does this happens anywhere else? I heard Texas? What to do?

    Whatever went down last week at the Miramar, Fla., house party happened in another room, and DeAndre Baker barely caught a glimpse of it. Why? Because he was playing “Madden.” This is the latest defense of the Giants cornerback accused of serious crimes that, if found guilty, could detonate his NFL career... “Far from an individual who’s going somewhere with an alleged intent to rob somebody, an armed robbery, to go there and hook up his ‘Madden’ game, play the game for over an hour and then leave it there and go home,’’ Patrick Patel, one of Baker’s attorneys, told...

    Subway robberies are skyrocketing despite a plunge in ridership during the coronavirus crisis - forcing the MTA to call in outside contractors for backup, according to sources.

The surge came while the MTA and NYPD struggle with virus-induced personnel shortages, with 5,055 NYPD personnel still out of work due to the virus as of Sunday...
