Police said Stalczynski conspired with Sharp to lure Sparrow to a wooded area and kill her.
  • "This is getting insane": Republicans rebuke Trump over baseless election claims (country club surrender monkeys)

    A growing list of Republicans have reproached President Trump for his baseless claims of widespread voter fraud. Why it matters: In televised remarks on Thursday evening. the president provided no evidence for his claim that widespread voter fraud has caused his initial lead in the presidential race to slip away. He also pledged to continue fighting to have ballots thrown out in the courts. What they're saying: Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: "We heard nothing today about any evidence. This kind of thing, all it does is inflame without informing. And we cannot permit inflammation without information." Sen. Mitt...

  • Coronavirus briefings are the new campaign rallies for Trump

    The Associated Press ^ | March 25, 2020 | By JILL COLVIN (D-AP)
    WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump has a new daily ritual now that the pandemic has put the kibosh on the signature campaign rallies that helped him get elected four years ago: the coronavirus briefing. The updates are far more staid than his raucous rallies and lack the adoring crowds and “Lock her up!” chants of the political gatherings. But they include many of the same features as his now-on-ice mass rallies: plenty of self-congratulation and airing of grievances, press bashing, tirades against his critics and an ample dose of misleading information. That, combined with measured updates from public health officials,...

    Two Ohio State football players were arrested Wednesday and accused in the rape and kidnapping of a woman earlier this month at their shared Ohio apartment. Jahsen Wint and Amir Riep, both 21, are facing two felony counts of rape and kidnapping. Columbus police alleged that the pair forced a woman to falsely admit on video that she engaged in consensual sex after being assaulted by the two men on Feb. 4, The Columbus Dispatch reported, citing a police affidavit.
  • Graham: 46 U.S. Senators Now Willing To Condemn House Impeachment Inquiry As Unfair; Update: Now 50

    The number of co-sponsors of Graham’s impeachment resolution as of 6 p.m. ET last night was 44, meaning that nine Senate Republicans were still holding out. But two of those holdouts, Rob Portman and Dan Sullivan, made no sense. They’re each from red states. They’d have nothing to gain and everything to lose by crossing Trump on impeachment matters (especially Sullivan, who’s up for reelection next fall). Sure enough, Graham himself reported soon after on his Twitter feed that both senators had joined his cause. That left just seven holdouts — but all seven *could* potentially be hard for...

    The Maine senator was unequivocal in her statements, which came after a firefighters memorial service in Augusta on Saturday morning, joining Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and Ben Sasse, R-Nevada, in breaking rank with GOP support for the president. “I thought the president made a big mistake by asking China to get involved in investigating a political opponent,” Collins said. “It’s completely inappropriate.” The president’s comments came days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, announced a formal impeachment probe into his attempt to solicit foreign help in an election, which is illegal and considered by many lawmakers to be a foundational threat...

  • ‘Journalist’ Fired from Contributing at NPR Over Antifa Activism

    A columnist at Teen Vogue has been dumped from her position as a contributor at NPR over her ties to Antifa, the loosely-affiliated gang of thugs known for domestic terrorism. “I’ve been contributing to [NPR Music] since 2011, but was just told they don’t want me to contribute anymore because my ‘activist stance’ ‘conflicts’ with their journalistic ethics,” Kim Kelly said on Twitter. “My ‘activist stance’ can be boiled down to a very simple political worldview: ‘Up, up, up with the workers! Down, down, down with the Nazis!’ Seems pretty reasonable to me.”

    The billionaire, arrested July 6 for sex trafficking of minors, attended high-profile events like the 'Batman v Superman' premiere and frequented Oscar season parties even as the #MeToo movement took down other powerful figures. On March 20, 2016, guests at Warner Bros.' Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice premiere in New York began whispering about one man mingling among the A-list crowd. No, it wasn't the film's Ben Affleck or Henry Cavill, or Affleck's hulking bodyguard, who almost knocked over the studio's former marketing head Sue Kroll as the VIP area became too crowded. The surprised looks were aimed at...

    Corey Lewandowski has sparked outrage after he mocked a story regarding a 10-year-old disabled illegal immigrant girl who was separated from her mom at the border. 'There is no low to which this coward Corey Lewandowski won't sink,' Megyn Kelly tweeted. 'This man should not be afforded a national platform to spew his hate.' Meghan McCain called the clip 'so horrible, even by Lewandowski standards'. Columnist John Podhoretz wrote: 'Womp womp will be the sound Corey Lewandowski's soul makes as it descends to Hell.'

    It’s obvious what’s going on. Team Trump has nominated a leading LGBT activist whose views are antithetical to those of most social conservatives and is trying to smuggle her across the finish line before the Christmas recess — and, above all, before members of Trump’s base catch on.

    The Homeland Security Department announced on Thursday that it would keep in place the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, allowing undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to remain in the country. The decision breaks a key campaign promise by Trump to "immediately terminate" the DACA program and stands at odds with the president's vows to crackdown on illegal immigration. In an announcement posted on the DHS website Thursday night, the department said that the memo that created DACA "will remain in effect." A fact sheet posted along with the announcement reaffirmed that the program's original provisions...

    The personal appeal that President Trump said he received from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last month — leading him to renegotiate NAFTA — was only made after Trump’s son-in-law and top aide Jared Kushner called Trudeau’s office in Ottawa and begged him to talk some sense into the commander-in-chief, a report says. The unconventional move was revealed Monday by the National Post, who spoke to several government sources familiar with the desperate pleas from Washington. Toronto’s Metro newspaper later revealed that Kushner was the government official who made the phone call.

    A high school student who stabbed a fellow pupil in the neck with a pencil can't be expelled under her school district's weapons policy, a Commonwealth Court panel has ruled. In fact, Judge Patricia A. McCullough wrote in the state court's opinion, every Pennsylvania classroom would be empty if her court agreed with the Pittsburgh Public School District that a sharpened pencil is a prohibited weapon. The case revolves around what happened between the 10th grader and another student at the Barack Obama International Academy on May 9, 2016.

    Three major cities accounted for more than half of the rise in the national murder rate between 2014 and 2015, a new report shows. Though overall crime rates were stagnant in America’s 30 largest cities the murder rate rose 13.3 percent, according to a report from the Brennan Center for Justice. The violent crime rate also rose by 3.1% in those major cities, lead by increases in Los Angeles, Baltimore, and Charlotte.
