    Jimmy Hoffa may be buried in a steel drum beneath other metal barrels at a New Jersey landfill site where excavators say there is proof a pit was once dug and filled in after the union leader's 1976 disappearance.  The whereabouts of Hoffa's remains has always been a mystery but according to Frank Cappola, the son of the late mobster Paul Cappola Sr, he is buried at a landfill site beneath the Pulaski Skyway.  The site used to belong to Cappola's father but is now owned by the New Jersey Department of Transportation and is used by a local waste management company to store unused dumpsters.  According to Cappola, Hoffa was murdered in Detroit after showing up to a mafia meeting. His body was then taken back to New Jersey, where Cappola told Fox Nation his father put him in a barrel, head first, then buried him.

    A New Jersey man recounts his encounter with the infamous Jersey Devil six decades after it took place on a new episode of Fox Nation's "Monsters Across America." In the episode, Michael Orfe recalls travelling down an unpaved road as a South Jersey high school student with his date, a girl named Violet. Suddenly, he remembers, Violet spotted something unusual coming toward them. "I get chills every time I see it," Orfe says, holding a sketch of what he believes to be the Jersey Devil. "I hid it [the sketch] away from my children at home when they were little." The backstory of the Jersey Devil is as varied as the number of people who claim to have encountered it. For more than 250 years, tales have circulated about the creature from The Pine Barrens, whose origins allegedly can be traced back to a monstrous local birth. Orfe, now an educator in New Jersey, recalls rolling down the window of his father's car when...
    Governor Asa Hutchinson (R-AR) said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that President Donald Trump “misled” his followers with his claims the 2020 election was “stolen.” Anchor Chris Wallace asked, “What responsibility do you think President Trump bears for the attack on the U.S. Capitol?” Hutchinson said, “Well, he asked all the people to come to Washington for the rally. And then he used very aggressive language in the rally itself, and he misled people and his followers as to what happened during the election, that it was stolen and that our checks and balances are not working.” He added, “And while I do believe there can be an effective review always to make sure our systems of elections work well, the Electoral College is what is critical to our nation. I supported that, and his challenge to that was wrong and did not serve our nation well, and...

    (CNN)Across the nation Americans are asking "How could this have happened?" The failure of federal law enforcement authorities to effectively defend the US Capitol was a disaster of monumental proportions. Members of Congress—and the rest of us--were stunned at the sight of rioters sitting in the Senate Chamber and even at Speaker Nancy Pelosi's personal desk in her Capitol office. Yet another mob member carried a Confederate flag through the Rotunda. Paul Callan The most precious gem of American democracy has always been the peaceful transfer of power that occurs with the election of a new president. George Washington set the precedent for this American tradition when he voluntarily relinquished power at the conclusion of his second term. But when that tradition is rejected by the President, and his supporters begin to riot at the US Capitol, whose job is it to restore the order? Read More That is...
    American culture has been hijacked by the left's "multi-generational, very patient and potent indoctrination program," Fox Nation host Rachel Campos-Duffy said Wednesday. Campos-Duffy attributed Raphael Warnock's defeat of Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., in Georgia's critical twin Senate runoffs to a Democrat stronghold on the culture war plaguing U.S. society.  "I think there are limits to what politics can do," she told "America's Newsroom" host Sandra Smith. "I believe culture is more important. Elections are lagging indicators of what is happening in the culture.  5 TAKEAWAYS FROM GEORGIA SENATE RUNOFFS "And," she continued, "let’s be very clear. We have been under a multi-generational very patient and potent indoctrination program by the left and they have captured so many aspects of American life from media, social media, Big Tech, corporate America, all the way down to the education system," she said. "It is what won the day." With Warnock's projected victory, Democrats are one win away from control of the Senate, making it more likely that President-elect Joe Biden would be able to pass his agenda...
    In the 1980s, 'Freeway' Ricky Ross built a crack cocaine empire that extended from his Los Angeles base to over 40 cities around the country. 'I was one of the richest guys in LA,' Ross said in a new documentary.  Reportedly a millionaire by 23, Ross was raking in so much cash – about $900 million in today's money – that he hired people to count it, according to a 2013 Esquire profile. Federal prosecutors said that Ross 'bought and resold three tons of cocaine,' between 1982 and 1989, according to the article.   Ross was not the only one profiting off the highly addictive drug. In New York City, Corey Pegues made money 'hand over fist' when he dealt crack. 'We went from making a hundred dollars a day to thousands of dollars a day. I was in it for money, clothes, jewelry and girls,' he recalled in the film....

    A tongue-in-cheek German advert urging people to 'be a hero and stay at home' has been released showing an elderly man recalling his 'service' in the 'winter of 2020.'  The short clip produced by the government begins with an elderly man recalling the arrival of the second coronavirus wave while he was a student 'when the whole country's eyes were on us.'  Dramatic violin strings play over a cinematographic montage of the narrator as a 22-year-old lazing around his sofa and saluting the delivery man bringing his pizza. The old man says: 'Our couch was the front line and our patience was our weapon.' Critics say the advert diminishes the catastrophic impacts of lockdown measures which many people will never be able to look back on with a 'smile,' as the narrator does.

    Lindsey Graham says he hasn't spoken to Donald Trump since the president decided to remove U.S. troops from Syria, a decision the senator says will put both the nation and Trump's presidency at risk. The long time Trump ally also said if he heard the president say one more time it was a campaign promise to pull American forces from the country, he would throw up.   'I think he's putting the nation at risk, and I think he's putting his presidency at risk,' Graham told Axios of Trump's decision to secede the area to Turkey.  'And I hope he will adjust his policies like he did before. That would actually be a sign of real leadership.' 'If I hear the president say one more time, 'I made a campaign promise to get out of Syria,' I'm going to throw up,' the Republican senator from South Carolina added.  Senator Lindsey Graham said he...

In my humble opinion, of the 1,543 individual seasons played by teams up through the 2019-20 campaign, that was the one that featured the most excellence in the field of playing bad basketball (perhaps even transcending all sports as the worst single-season anyone has had in the history of organized athletics, and I say that as someone who sat in constant rain through the 2008 UW Husky Football season).

    Trump in Minnesota on Wednesday night The most extraordinary thing about the press event held at Walter Reed Medical Center on Saturday morning wasn’t the backflips Dr. Sean Conley made in his attempt to pretend that Donald Trump had not been given supplemental oxygen, nor his refusal to give basic information about Trump’s condition while pretending that all was well. The jaw-dropping moment of the morning was when Conley and other physicians speaking from the steps outside Walter Reed absolutely destroyed the timeline of Trump’s illness, and demonstrated one again the incredible scope of deception within this White House. According to Conley, Saturday morning was “72 hours” after Trump’s diagnosis. That’s extraordinary, because it means that Trump received the news he was positive for COVID-19 not early Friday morning, when he tweeted that news out to the public, but on Wednesday morning, shortly after completing his debate with Joe Biden.

    President Donald Trump admitted on Wednesday he downplayed the threat of the coronavirus in order not to cause panic after a bombshell revelation that he knew how deadly the pandemic could be.  'I'm a cheerleader for this country. I love this country. I don't want people to be frightened. I don't want to create panic,' he told reporters at the White House.  'Certainly I'm not going to drive this country or the world into a frenzy. We want to show confidence. We want to show strength, we want to show strength as a nation. That's what I've done,' he added 'Leadership is about confidence. Confidence is confidence in our country,' he noted. His admission comes after excerpts appeared from Bob Woodward's forthcoming book on the Trump administration, where, in recorded interviews, the president spoke privately about the deadly nature of the coronavirus even as he was publicly downplaying the severity of COVID-19. ...
    Myron Lizer, vice president of the Navajo Nation, said on Tuesday at the Republican National Committee’s 2020 convention that, until President Donald Trump was elected, Native Americans were ignored by Washington. “Many of our ancestral leaders sought to govern and lead a nation within a nation,” Lizer said. “They sought to lead their people into the promises of a better way of life for their children’s children.” “It is also where they have not been as successful as the rest of America,” Lizer said. “Our first nation’s people — the host people of the land — we are still here. Our creator placed us here and he knew that for such a time as this we would have the opportunity for an appeal to heaven.” “You see our people have never been invited into the America Dream,” Lizer said. “We for years fought past battles with congressmen and senators that...
    From the moment he delivered the keynote address at the Democratic convention in 2004, there was no doubt that Barack Obama was one of the great orators of the age. Since then, he has demonstrated again and again that instinctive grace, sterling purity of purpose, and unmatched ability to build a ladder of language that invited everyone to climb up. Two decades of that eloquence makes it difficult to single out any one speech by President Obama as “the best.” But no speech he ever delivered was more passionate, more direct, or more consequential than the one he delivered on Wednesday night. Sixteen years after that first speech introduced Obama to the nation, he came back to save that nation. It wasn’t an extremely lengthy speech. It wasn’t a speech that was filled with metaphor or concepts. It was not saddled with baroque turns of phrase or elaborate metaphors. It was pure....

    Screengrab via HBOWith good reason, much ink has been spilled about Donald Trump’s trainwreck interview with Axios’s Jonathan Swan. It offered plenty of easy targets for mockery: Trump’s horrifyingly tone-deaf remarks about John Lewis (“Nobody has done more for Black Americans than I have”); his absurd insistence that the number of COVID deaths didn’t matter (“It is what it is”) as much as the number of tests; his squirming, dissembling dismissal of intelligence showing that Russia had put bounties on American soldiers in Afghanistan (“That’s an issue many people said was fake news”); his casual equating of anarchists (a legal and legitimate ideology) and “agitators” (a word that calls to mind Bull Connor) with terrorists; his ongoing defense of accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell (“I do wish her well”); his complaint that mail-in voting is “new” (Swan: “It’s been here since the Civil War”), to name a few. As the internet soon discovered,...
    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) raised eyebrows with comments that were published in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette on Sunday, calling slavery “the necessary evil upon which the union was built.” Cotton’s remarks came in the context of an interview regarding a bill he filed that would prevent federal tax dollars from being used to teach the “1619 Project,” a research project, podcast series, and accompanying curriculum that was developed by Nikole Hannah-Jones for The New York Times Magazine. The date refers to the year in which the first slaves from Africa were brought to colonial America, and the project seeks “to reframe American history by considering what it would mean to regard 1619 as our nation’s birth year.” The 1619 Project won praise for describing how slavery’s legacy continues to affect present-day America, and Hannah-Jones won the Pulitzer Prize for her work. However, it was also subject to criticism as “historical revisionism”...

The administration has spent months deliberating how greatest to reply, however has to this point taken no motion. “President Trump was cozying as much as Putin and alluring him to the G7 all whereas his Administration reportedly knew Russia was attempting to kill US troops in Afghanistan and derail peace talks with the Taliban,” Virginia Sen.

    Black Lives Matter is a mandate from the people and it is “time” for Americans to “pay us what you owe us,” Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) said Thursday. Pressley made her comments during a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives and said there was a “rallying cry in communities across the nation,” according to the Daily Wire. She continued: Madam Speaker, I rise today on behalf of every Black family that has been robbed of a child. On behalf of every family member that has been forced to see their loved one lynched on national television. Driving while Black. Jogging while Black. Sleeping while Black.

    TULSA, Okla. (AP) — President Donald Trump is seeking to tie the destruction of monuments and statues around the country to Democratic leaders, including his likely rival in the presidential election, Joe Biden. Speaking to supporters in Tulsa, Trump says “the choice in 2020 is very simple. Do you want to bow before the left-wing mob or do you want to stand up tall and proud as Americans?” Statues have been destroyed in numerous cities amid continuing anti-racism demonstrations following the May 25 police killing in Minneapolis of George Floyd, the African-American man who died in police custody. The statues targeted included a bust of Ulysses Grant, who was the U.S. president after he was the general who finally beat the Confederates and ended the Civil War. Also torn down in a San Francisco park was a statue of Francis Scott Key, who wrote the “Star Spangled Banner.” Key owned...

    Australia is under cyber attack from a malicious 'state-actor' with banks, transport networks, electricity grids and the military all under threat - but a security analyst says the most vulnerable target is the nation's open, democratic system of government. Other security experts have pointed the finger squarely at Beijing, with former officials claiming the cyber invasion is payback for Australia's decision to ban Huawei from the national 5G network. The Chinese telecommunications giant is the world's largest 5G infrastructure builder but Canberra hit the brakes on their involvement in Australia's critical infrastructure roll-out in August 2018, citing national security concerns. Although the perpetrator of the cyber invasion has not been named, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said a 'sophisticated state-based actor' was behind ongoing attacks which have hit Australian universities, hospitals, industry and governments.

    SAN ANTONIO – In the premiere episode of KSAT Explains, we take an in-depth look at the unrest we’ve seen across the country since the killing of George Floyd, how protests have played out here at home and examine what it means to be black in San Antonio.

It spurred several protests and demonstrations in San Antonio, a city known for its history fighting for civil rights.

One of his earliest memories of the civil rights movement in San Antonio was at the grocery store Handy Andy. “The owner of stated that he would not permit a black person to count his money,...
    He looks well, no? Donald Trump is in a foul mood. He's "wallowing in self-pity" about the coverage he's getting for his abysmal responses to the global pandemic and the racial reckoning that’s roiling the nation. Some White House aides aren't even sure wants to win a second term given his bouts of ragey self-sabotage, like tweeting out the racist catchphrase "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." But one thing Trump is clear on is his desire to smoke out and punish whoever leaked info on his run for the bunker several weeks ago during peak White House protests, according to The New York Times. The Times reports Trump has once again become "consumed" with finding the leakers of that humiliating bunker retreat, for which he earned the nicknames "Bunker Boy" and "Bunker Bitch." And according to several sources, he also wants to prosecute them. But the bigger picture is that...

    Anti-LGBTQ activist Franklin Graham is furious over Monday’s Supreme Court ruling that finds Title Vii of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects LGBTQ workers from discrimination, and says America was founded on his right to fire them. “As a Bible-believing follower of Jesus Christ, my rights should be protected,” Graham writing on Facebook about the SCOTUS decision, insists. “Even if my sincerely held religious beliefs might be the minority, I still have a right to hold them. The same holds true for a Christian organization. These are the freedoms our nation was founded on.” “I believe this decision erodes religious freedoms across this country,” the evangelical Christian preacher continued. “People of sincere faith who stand on God’s Word as their foundation for life should never be forced by the government to compromise their religious beliefs.” That’s just plain false.

    TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) - The Cherokee Nation has removed two confederate monuments from its Capitol Square that were erected nearly a century ago by the Daughters of the Confederacy. A crane removed the monuments from the nation’s tribal headquarters in Tahlequah on Saturday as Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin, Jr., watched. “It’s difficult to tell our story when we have non-Indian-driven monuments talking about the Confederacy, when they greet people as they come into our Cherokee Nation museum,” Hoskin said in a statement. “It was time for a change.” TOP STORIES Coronavirus hype biggest political hoax in history Hanging deaths spur protests, probes in California D.C. mayor sued over Black Lives Matter on street to White House The monuments included a fountain memorializing confederate soldiers and Gen.

    Trump’s loyalist attorney general, William Barr, was on Face the Nation this morning to do what he does: betray his oath of office and the nation while lying to the American public to protect Donald Trump from consequences. Barr’s own story on his involvement with the attack on Lafayette Park and St. John’s Church protesters continues to shift with the winds; in a Saturday interview, Barr backed away from reports he ordered the attack with the rock-solid defense “My attitude was get it done, but I didn’t say, ‘Go do it.’” One of today’s new Barr claims was that Trump “never asked or suggested that we needed to deploy regular troops” to put down the protests. This flies in the face of reports by multiple reports of Trump furiously demanding that exact thing, on that exact afternoon, in a meeting William Barr was in. Barr is demonstrably lying, which is yet another reason he and everyone else in the administration...
    Thousands of people gathered throughout the country on Friday with flowers, balloons, and birthday cards for Breonna Taylor to mark what would have been her 27th birthday. Taylor was shot and killed by police officers nearly three months ago in her own home.  Police entered Taylor's home in Louisville, Kentucky, on the night of March 13 while she and her boyfriend were in bed. Taylor's boyfriend Kenneth Walker told the 911 operator on the night of the incident that the officers "kicked down the door" and shot her. Taylor's family has filed a lawsuit, saying that the officers who showed up were in plainclothes and unmarked cars, and did not announce who they were. Taylor and her boyfriend thought the officers were burglars, according to the suit.  The country has erupted in nationwide protests over the past week over police behavior, including Taylor's death and the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis....
    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., praised the National Guard Friday while reacting to the D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser calling for them to leave her city. "I think our National Guard is a blessing to the nation. These are citizen soldiers who have left Utah and South Carolina to come up here to D.C. to try to help keep order," Graham said on "Your World with Neil Cavuto." "They've been guarding monuments, been washing off some pretty grotesque graffiti on on our monuments in town. This is the center of America's government."

    BOSTON (AP) — Like George Floyd, he was black, in his mid-40s, and died at the hands of a white man. And like Floyd, he may have helped touch off a revolution. Many in the Black Lives Matter movement are invoking Crispus Attucks — an African American gunned down by a British soldier in the Boston Massacre of 1770 — as a symbol of entrenched white-on-black violence and oppression. Attucks is widely seen as the first casualty of the American Revolution, and 250 years after his death, he’s become a rallying figure for a nation battling old demons. “Crispus Attucks was a black man and the first person killed during the Boston Massacre that started the Revolutionary War,” said Jeff Nadeau, 45, a health care industry worker in Los Angeles County. “George Floyd was another black man killed who started this revolution. History does repeat itself,” he said. To be...

    This column originally appeared in the Washington Times. Courtesy of our educational infrastructure having been transformed into leftist indoctrination centers, the result is politicians who care only about ideology where citizens are collateral damage in their march toward a leftist utopia. Our media is populated with news-actors who are similarly bound to their teachers’ idols of social justice, political correctness and identity politics. All of our institutions are suffering from the twin masters of identity politics and woke philosophy. In New York City during the riots, two individuals were arrested for attempting to bomb a marked New York Police Department cruiser with a Molotov cocktail.

    (CNN)On Monday, as the nation marked Memorial Day, President Donald Trump mocked his campaign rival for wearing a face mask. On Wednesday, as the national death toll from coronavirus reached a wretched milestone, Trump and his family flew to Florida in an attempted focus on space travel. By Friday, as smoke was lifting in Minneapolis after a night of racial unrest, he announced the United States would withdraw from the World Health Organization.In between, there was a dark suggestion of murder, false conspiracies about voting through the mail, a fight over where to hold his nominating convention and a dramatic escalation of ill will with the very social media platform that facilitated almost all the other diversions in the first place.Trump's efforts to change the subject at moments of peril have been a hallmark of his entire career in politics and, when successful, a constant source of frustration for his...
