the criminal:

    The Instagram show-off known as “Hushpuppi” tooled around the world in a Ferrari and a Maybach, ordered crates of champagne at nightclubs and sported $150,000 diamond-festooned wristwatches. He claimed his luggage traveled in its own Rolls-Royce. He kept warm on private jets by covering himself in a Louis Vuitton blanket. Boasting about his wealth while calling some of his 2.5 million Instagram followers “peasants,” Hushpuppi also appeared to have an ego that was criminally large. The same could be said for his alleged professions: money launderer, perpetrator of wire fraud and Internet scam artist. In June, the 37-year-old was arrested in Dubai. A court document claims he and co-conspirators “[targeted] victims around the world in schemes designed to steal hundreds...

    The ACLU says it will not back down from fighting back against the unlawful bans. Lubbock is the latest city in Texas to try to declare itself a "sanctuary city for the unborn." It's one of several municipalities that are openly defying the Constitution by functionally enacting a complete abortion ban within their borders. Since mid-2019, at least 13 cities in Texas have considered such ordinances, and 11 cities in East Texas passed an anti-abortion sanctuary city law. None of those cities had an abortion clinic. Almost immediately, seven of those East Texas cities were sued by the American Civil Liberties Union Each city's ordinance declared abortion providers "criminal entities,"...
    Ari Melber is well suited to the current moment. He’s the anchor of popular MSNBC show The Beat, and an omnipresent legal analyst for the network at a time when such commentary is in high demand. And now, as yet another national news story (this time the presidential election) becomes consumed by legal questions, he joined The Interview to discuss his The Beat, the news cycle and what we can expect from election day. Melber’s idiosyncratic show — which pairs savvy analysis with the occasional rap lyric — has carved out a comfortable spot in the network’s lineup, and distinguished itself with thought-provoking segments like a recent long-form report on cell phone videos exposing police brutality. The Beat picked...
    Video of a bizarre moment on Fox News captured a host slamming on the brakes when Newt Gingrich said that billionaire financier George Soros was supporting efforts behind the Black Lives Matter protests. The interaction resulted in a long awkward silence from hosts Harris Faulkner and Melissa Francis during "Outnumbered" on Wednesday. "The number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up," said Gingrich. "Both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros's money. And they are a major cause...
    Republican Utah Sen. Mike Lee explained why he believes the making of the Netflix film “Cuties” could be criminal during a Tuesday night appearance on Fox News’ “The Story.” Lee sent a letter Friday to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings demanding an explanation “as to whether or not the potential exploitation of minors in this film constitutes criminal behavior.” Fox News host Martha MacCallum asked Lee for his reaction after reading a quote from the film’s director defending her work. “I saw so many things and so many issues around me lived by young girls, that I decided to make this film and sound an alarm and say, ‘We need to protect our children.’ It’s bold, its feminist, but it’s also important...

    I didn't think I would see anything as sickening this year as the appalling killing of George Floyd at the kneed of a callous police officer. But I was wrong. The grainy video of a disgusting coward sneaking up to shoot two deputy sheriffs in Compton, Los Angeles as they sat in their patrol car was just as repulsive and disturbing. There was no warning, and no provocation. This was just a deliberate, pre-meditated attempt at a cold-blooded execution. The shooter clearly intended to kill his targets as he fired a number of rounds from his pistol at point blank range into their car before running off. Fortunately, as I write this column, he appears to have failed in his...
    Cody Fenwick September 14, 2020 11:38AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on AlterNet. For all the demands that former Vice President Joe Biden condemn rioting and looting, no serious observer actually thinks he supports violence in the streets. The most plausible criticism of Biden is that he's a creature of the existing political system — a product of and adherent to the established institutional order. He doesn't want violence and chaos to shake the foundations of society. President Donald Trump, on the other hand, really does relish chaos, and he cares little for any institutions that he doesn't see as directly benefiting him. And in a new Fox News interview this weekend, he made clear that he's not just...
    In a Sunday interview on New York WABC 770 AM radio’s “The Cats Roundtable,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich sounded off on the ongoing unrest in some of the United States’ major cities leading up to the 2020 presidential election. Gingrich said it is “beginning to sink in” across the country how “pro-criminal and anti-police the modern Democrats have become.” He added that billionaire George Soros is “spending millions of dollars” across the country to help “elect pro-criminal, anti-police district attorneys.” “I think the degree to which people are learning about how pro-criminal and anti-police the modern Democrats have become,” Gingrich told host John Catsimatidis. “And I think that’s been a big deal. And the very fact that George Soros...
    THE BIG Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar has stunned his former co-stars with his portrayal of a “cold and psychotic” character on new Netflix show, Criminal.

    Andrew Napolitano, the Fox News legal analyst and former judge, has been sued by a one-time criminal defendant for $10million who claims that he was forced to perform oral sex on him while he presided over his case in 1988. A lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court on Friday alleges that Napolitano sexually assaulted Charles Corbishley after he lured him to his New Jersey home under false pretenses. Napolitano, who is being accused of sexual assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress, has denied the allegations. ‘These accusations are completely false,’ Napolitano said in a statement given to DailyMail.com by his attorney, Thomas Clare. ‘Full stop. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes, at any time,...

    A South Carolina man has filed a sensational, $10-million lawsuit against longtime Fox News personality Andrew Napolitano, aka The Judge, accusing the former New Jersey Superior Court jurist of “forcibly sodomiz[ing] and sexually assault[ing]” him when he was a 20-year-old criminal defendant more than three decades ago, and then using his judicial power to reduce the young man’s sentence as a way of ensuring his silence. More recently, the lawsuit alleges: “In a brazen attempt to intimidate Plaintiff and stop him from filing this lawsuit,” Napolitano, now 70, “reached out to law enforcement authorities and made completely false criminal accusations against Plaintiff,” telling police “that Plaintiff had made threats of violence against him. These claims were outright fabrications. Plaintiff never...
    Savannah Rychcik September 10, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump is receiving harsh criticism from Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden after reports surfaced of Trump concealing the threat of the coronavirus pandemic. “He waved a white flag; he walked away. He didn’t do a damn thing. Think about it. Think about what he did not do. It’s almost criminal,” Biden said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. During a March phone call with Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward, Trump said in regards to the coronavirus, “I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.” Biden noted Columbia Medical School pointed out in March if Trump acted...
    The Justice Department has charged 57 people since May with trying to steal more than $175 million from the Paycheck Protection Program designed to help Americans during the coronavirus pandemic, a department official said on Thursday. Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian Rabbitt said on Thursday that coordinated criminal rings have worked to defraud the program.  'The involvement of these rings isn't surprising, but it is particularly troubling to us here at the department, we will be focusing on these types of cases, going forward,' he said at a news conference. Investigators say that some of those involved in the scams flaunted the ill-gotten funds, using them to buy exotic cars and expensive homes. Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian Rabbitt...
    President Trump put criminal justice reform front and center during the Republican National Convention last month when he pardoned Jon Ponder and Alice Marie Johnson. Trump’s decision to pardon this man and woman, who have paid their debts to society, is worthy of celebration, and it should remind us that pardons are not political tools but instruments of restorative justice. Presidents, governors, and legislatures must expand the use of pardons at the federal and state level to eliminate some of the lifelong collateral consequences of incarceration. ALICE JOHNSON RECEIVES FULL PARDON FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP The chances of receiving a pardon depend on multiple factors, including what state a person is convicted in, the nature of their crime and culpability, or...
    On Aug. 23, 29-year-old Jacob Blake, a black man, was shot seven times in the back by a white police officer. The original video, which only included the last moments of the incident, gave no context for the incident. But further video and police reports made clear what happened. According to the police association, the police were called to the scene by a black woman who had dialed 911 to report that Blake was attempting to steal the keys to her car. There was an open warrant on Blake for third-degree felony sexual assault; the alleged victim is the woman who dialed 911, and she apparently had a restraining order against Blake. Back in May, she alleged that Blake entered...
    BRONZEVILLE — You can now order cannabis gummies and pre-rolled joints from the comfort of your home — but for many Illinois residents, old drug charges can prevent them from renting an apartment or getting a job. The Cannabis Equity Coalition of Illinois is trying to change that. On Friday, more than 50 people showed up to the Coalition’s RAP sheet event at Chicago Police headquarters, 3501 S Michigan Ave., which helped those with old marijuana-related charges get their criminal records expunged. Those who attended were able to connect with a legal representative to begin the arduous expungement process, which destroys court records of past convictions. Advocates with Legal Aid Chicago, Chicago Norml and other volunteers joined the...

    One reason for the surging, often protracted violence in US cities is the rise of a host of progressive prosecutors who actually tilt against law and order. The trend is most glaring in places known for their kooky left-wing politics, like Portland and San Francisco, but extreme leftists have also taken over as district attorneys in cities like Chicago and Boston. Many owe big thanks for their elections to funding from far-left fatcat George Soros. In Portland, violent “protests” have dragged on for months, thanks to the idiocy of Mayor Ted Wheeler, who let hoodlums drive him out of his own condo — but also to Multnomah County DA Mike Schmidt, who dropped charges against hundreds of people arrested for...
    SAN SALVADOR – The pronounced decline in homicidal violence in El Salvador, capitalized by the government of Nayib Bukele as its main achievement in just over a year in power, was called into question after a journalistic investigation attributed it to a pact with the Mara Salvatrucha gang (MS13).

    Two Republican House members have officially called on Attorney General William Barr to investigate House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for tearing up President Trump’s State of the Union address earlier this year. Republican Policy Committee Chairman Gary Palmer and Republican Study Committee Chairman Mike Johnson have sent a letter to Barr, asking him to provide an answer as to whether Pelosi "committed a criminal act by destroying an official copy of the State of the Union speech delivered to her,” according to Fox News. The lawmakers suspect that Pelosi may have violated 18 U.S.C. § 2071, which pertains to destroying federal records and carries a possible punishment of three years in prison. “Nancy Pelosi’s famous tantrum on the House floor...
    Suzanne Morphew's brother is organizing his own search for the Colorado mom who's been missing since Mother's Day as he says he suspects foul play in her disappearance.  Andrew Moorman held a vigil for his sister in her hometown of Alexandria, Indiana, over the weekend, where he announced his plan to recruit more than 1,000 volunteers for a five-day search.  'I've got to find my little sister, and I have to bring closure to my family,' Moorman said, according to the Herald Bulletin.

    Dear Moneyist, I am one of four children and my father died naming my brother the executor of his will. My father died with no debt, and a home that was mortgage free in the best neighborhood. He had worked for the same company for over 45 years with a pension and savings throughout his life. My brother and his wife moved into dad’s home even though they own their own home. They changed the locks, and hired an alarm company so no one could enter the property. They also refused to give anyone a copy of the will until after he presented it to the court, so they claimed. They began blowing through my dad’s money...

    Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker's son, Christian Walker, ripped Kamala Harris in a new video produced by the Log Cabin Republicans, a group that advocates for gay and lesbian conservatives. "When racism, direct racism, wasn't working for the Democrat Party because Republicans came in and put an end to Jim Crow laws, put an end to slavery — it was the Republicans who championed civil rights. The Democrats had to switch to 'OK, well we can't be directly racist anymore, so let's just pretend we like black people.' This is always what they do. They go, 'Hey. Look, black people, we're going to have a female black woman VP. Vote for us!'" Christian Walker said in a three-minute video...

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced on Tuesday it made more than 2,000 arrests during a six-week nationwide operation in July and August that focused on those with criminal convictions and charges, but also led to arrests of some undocumented immigrants with clean records. As part of the operation, ICE agents made "at-large" arrests at residences, worksites and traffic stops across the country, including in large metropolitan areas like Los Angeles, where the ICE field office apprehended the most immigrants. ICE said the operation targeted undocumented immigrants and others subject to deportation who had been charged or convicted of a crime involving a victim. Roughly 85% of those arrested had criminal convictions or charges ranging from assault and...

Prosecutors have dismissed a criminal charge against a southern Illinois man whom they accused of endangering public safety when he entered a busy gas station store after he was ordered to self-isolate because of coronavirus-like symptoms. Jason Liddle, 36, of Olney, was charged in late March, as Illinois was under a shelter-in-place order because of the accelerating number of COVID-19 cases. Liddle had stopped at The Gas Station convenience store in Sainte Marie, in Jasper County, so his then 4-year-old son could use the bathroom. A store employee who attended high school with Liddle recalled a...
    The reporting on Jacob Blake has sometimes mentioned in passing that there was a warrant for Blake’s arrest stemming from a domestic violence incident. The actual crime that Blake is accused of committing isn’t often described in any detail, despite the fact that the alleged crime may be relevant to the shooting on Sunday. It potentially speaks to Blake’s state of mind, his character, and his propensity for violence, and it explains why the cops were called in the first place. According to the criminal complaint, which can be found here, Blake’s ex-girlfriend says that he entered her house uninvited early in the morning on Sunday, May 3, 2020. She reports that she woke to find him in her room, standing...

    By YURAS KARMANAU, Associated Press MINSK, Belarus (AP) — Belarusian authorities on Monday detained two leading opposition activists who have helped spearhead a wave of protests demanding the resignation of the country's authoritarian ruler of 26 years. The opposition’s Coordination Council said its members Sergei Dylevsky and Olga Kovalkova were detained by police in the capital, Minsk. City police confirmed their detention. The move signals President Alexander Lukashenko’s determination to stifle the massive demonstrations that have entered their third week. It comes a day after the 65-year-old Belarusian leader toted an assault rifle in a show of force as he arrived at his residence by helicopter as protesters rallied nearby. Last week, Lukashenko's warned the council created to negotiate a...
    John Jones III became an activist for a simple reason: When he saw who was in the room having conversations about the future of his neighborhood, there wasn’t a seat for anyone from his community. So, he invited himself in. Jones, who was homeless for 18 months after he was released in 2012 following felony assault charges, is a leader in the campaign to stop landlords from asking applicants about criminal backgrounds except when required by law and give applicants an opportunity to explain their past. A similar statewide measure for job seekers with criminal backgrounds was passed in California in 2017. A self-professed history buff, Jones now advocates for solutions to housing issues, displacement, over-policing and mass incarceration. We talked...
    The love child of Belgium's former King Albert II has revealed why she outed the royal as her father, insisting she would have done so regardless of his status.  Artist Delphine Boel, 52, won a seven-year legal battle in January, which resulted in Albert, 86, admitting he was her biological father after submitting to a court-ordered DNA test last year.  The revelation confirms her as the half-sister of King Philippe, 60, and Queen Mathilde, 47, and puts her 15th-in-line to the Belgian throne. She's also entitled to a share of Albert's estate when he dies.  Delphine is thought to be the result of an 18-year affair Albert - who abdicated in 2013 - had with Belgian aristocrat Sybille de Selys Longchamps.  In an...
    Kevin Costner didn’t hold back on his thoughts about President Trump’s “criminal” interference with the United States Postal Service in a recent interview. Costner played a drifter who posed as a USPS mailman in the 1997 movie “The Postman,” which was supposed to be set in 2013. The film shows the actor restoring democracy by delivering letters to and from other towns after a totalitarian leader tries to take over one Western town. On “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Tuesday, the talk show host did a spoof trailer of a re-release of “The Postman.” KEVIN COSTNER IS DISAPPOINTED WITH AMERICAN POLITICS: 'SHAME ON US' “In its day, a critical and box office disaster.

    Rudy Giuliani has blamed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for rising violent crime in the city, claiming 'pro-criminal, anti-police policies' are sending the city out of control. 'The last time this city was like this, the last time the city had riots and crime at this level we had a Democratic mayor,' Giuliani told Fox News on Thursday morning, apparently referring to David Dinkins, the Democratic mayor from 1990 to 1993. Violent crime in New York skyrocketed in the 1970s and 80s, and began to taper off during Dinkins' term, but saw its steepest declines under Giuliani, who served as mayor from 1994 to 2001.  Giuliani, who as mayor was a proponent of controversial policing tactics such as...

    On Thursday, August 20, Acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss announced that former Breitbart News Chairman Steve Bannon had been indicted in the Southern District of New York for allegedly defrauding donors in a crowdfunding campaign for a U.S./Mexico border wall. And when legal analyst Glenn Kirschner discussed Bannon’s arrest during an appearance on MSNBC, he speculated that officials in the U.S. Department of Justice might have put up a “firewall” that would have prevented Attorney General William Barr from knowing about the case. MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle asked Kirschner, “Would Bill Barr’s office have been aware that this happened?” — to which Kirschner responded, “It depends on how covert the prosecutors in the Southern District of New York wanted to...
    On Tuesday night, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s cold open was a bit unusual. In lieu of a skit ridiculing Trump’s latest bout of chaos-agenting, the program aired a mock trailer for the re-release of Kevin Costner’s 1997 film The Postman. “In its day, a critical and box office disaster. But today, chillingly accurate,” the voiceover said. “Looks like somebody owes Kevin Costner an apology.” As fate would have it, I was scheduled to interview Costner the following day to discuss HearHere, his new storytelling platform/travel app providing, “A hands-free experience that delights, informs and entertains by fostering a deeper connection with the people, places and histories of the land you are traveling through.” Costner hadn’t seen...
    If a Democrat had done what former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn admitted to doing — lying to the FBI about his communications with a Russian ambassador — Republican allies of President Donald Trump would have demanded a severe punishment. Instead, the Trump DOJ under the direction of Attorney General Bill Barr filed a motion asking that the case be dismissed. Conservative attorney George Conway, one of Trump’s most vehement critics on the right, and trial lawyer Lawrence S. Robbins discuss Flynn’s case in a scathing op-ed published in the Washington Post on August 18 — and they stress that “no serious criminal lawyer” would make the types of arguments that Trump supporters have been using in Flynn’s defense. “Flynn...
    Indian singer and rapper, Badshah has been in hot waters from a past few days after his name popped into the fake views/followers controversy. Throwing some light on the same, it was a while back when it was claimed that the singer has paid Rs 72 lakh for churning additional views on one of his music videos. The reason behind the same was reported that Badshah wanted to break the viewership record. Owing to the same, he was earlier questioned twice by the police. And well, now as per the latest report on ANI, it states that the singer will now be investigated by the Criminal Investigation Unit in Mumbai.

    President Donald Trump said his controversial postmaster general is just trying to make the post office 'good again' as Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling the House back from its summer recess for a crisis session on the postal system. And two House Democrats asked the FBI to open a criminal investigation into the role that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy played in mail delays as concerns those delays will lead to voter disenfranchisement have increased.  Trump's defense of DeJoy - a prominent Republican donor the president appointed to the position - on Monday was mingled with attacks on Pelosi, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, Amazon, and its founder Jeff Bezos. 'I'm just making it good,' the president said of changes to...
    Kunal Kemmu’s Abhay 2 is in for big trouble and for the right reasons. Turns out the show makers and its entire team didn’t take their history lessons very seriously and ended up making this big goof up. In episode two, ‘One Legged Skeleton’, we can see the makers using Bengali freedom fighter, Khudiram Bose’s picture as a mug shot for a criminal. A twitter user highlighted this grave issue on her account while also sharing his disappointment for the OTT platform. Abhay 2: Ram Kapoor Opens Up About His Villain’s Role in Kunal Kemmu’s ZEE5 Show, Says ‘My Character is Going to Leave the Audience Stunned. “Shocking to see Zee5 web series Abhay 2 using Bengali freedom fighters Marty Khudiram...
    For purposes of the following, let’s stipulate that Joseph Biden is elected president. Of course, we have a long road ahead to make that happen, but if it doesn’t happen, everything written below will be moot. Given that scenario, and based on their past conduct, it’s fair to assume that the dominating, prevailing impulse among most if not all of Donald Trump’s appointees—and of Trump himself—will be to loot or otherwise exploit the vast resources controlled by our federal government for their personal ends. The lame-duck presidency will permit Trump’s appointees and their hires in nearly all of our federal agencies approximately 75 days of zero accountability, where their only goal, as they perceive it, will be to extract as much wealth as feasible...
    Far-left actor and director Rob Reiner sent out a conspiracy-filled rant to his 1.2 million Twitter followers, saying he’d be willing to run the risk of contracting the coronavirus in order to show up in person to vote out President Donald Trump in November’s election. “Destroying the USPS is a violation of Federal Law. Trump is breaking it to steal this election. No one wants to choose between voting and dying. But to put this Racist Criminal behind bars & save our Democracy, I’d go to the poll,” Rob Reiner said, accusing Trump of trying to destroy the United States Postal Service (USPS) and steal the election. Destroying the USPS is a violation of Federal Law. Trump is breaking it to...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrested a fugitive Wednesday wanted on criminal charges in El Salvador. Efrain Rivas-Reyes, 45, a citizen and national of El Salvador, is wanted for criminal prosecution by the government of El Salvador for alien smuggling and fraud. He had been on the run in the U.S. for two years, according to an ICE news release. Efrain Rivas-Reyes arrested by Dallas ICE officers (credit: ICE). On June 29, 2016, the government of El Salvador issued an Interpol Red Notice for Rivas-Reyes.

    A Portland attorney called out an Oregon district attorney for violating “fundamental principles of equal protection of the laws” by deciding not to prosecute hundreds of Portland protestors. “We have a prosecutor who has discarded centuries of common sense about criminal law and deterrents and incapacitation and all the other benefits of arresting people for the purpose of promoting public disorder in Portland,” attorney James Buchal told “Fox & Friends First” on Thursday. Buchal made the comments two days after Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that charges will be dropped against protesters who were arrested and accused of interfering with a peace officer or parole and probation officer; disorderly conduct; criminal trespass; escape; harassment and riot, unless they were accompanied by some other charge of physical violence or...
    Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are using crime and the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement to get what they want, Tucker Carlson argued Wednesday. "Both [Kamala Harris] and Joe Biden have seen BLM for what it is, a way to get elected and a convenient way for the Democratic Party and its donor class to evade scrutiny while they're doing it," Carlson said of the Democratic Party's presumptive presidential ticket. "Both Biden and Harris have embraced the Democratic Party's new pro-criminal agenda. They're not even hiding that. "When the conversation's about race and policing, it's not about Wall Street corruption or Amazon's tax rate, and that's the point. It is cover for them," Carlson said. "They don't want to talk about...
    Bogotá, Aug 10 (EFE) .- Colombian President Iván Duque considers it essential that businessman Álex Saab, accused of being a front man for Nicolás Maduro, be extradited to the United States by Cape Verde so that the “dark ties are revealed “of the Venezuelan Government with drug trafficking. “It is necessary and essential so that all the dark ties of the Venezuelan dictatorship with drug trafficking, with money laundering and with a very large criminal network can be exposed,” said the president in an interview with the National Radio of Colombia . On August 4, the Cape Verdean Justice authorized the extradition to the United States of Saab, who was arrested on June 12 when his plane stopped to refuel...
    On Saturday Donald Trump claimed he would impose (apparently by some hidden appropriations power that he does not Constitutionally possess) a “payroll tax holiday,” which would purportedly defer the payroll tax for certain employed Americans through December, as a means of financial assistance for individuals and families coping with the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. This action appears patently illegal, as the power to levy taxes or change the tax code resides in the Congress under Article 1 of the U.S. Constitution, but let’s for the moment pretend it is legal and Trump does have the authority to declare such a “holiday” through the end of the year. All of this means is exactly what his “order” says–that the taxes are deferred...
    There she goes again: Attorney General Tish James last week filed another dubious lawsuit, this one seeking to dissolve the National Rifle Association. We’ve had differences with the pro-gun group over the years, but James’ attempt to crush it is clearly a political stunt. She’s hoping it will make her a star on the left and lead to favorable headlines for years to come as the suit winds its way through the legal system. James argues the NRA is so “fraught with fraud and abuse” that the 149-year-old group — headquartered in Virginia but chartered in New York — should be shuttered. The suit names four current or former leaders, including chief executive Wayne LaPierre, whom James accuses of having...
    President Donald Trump is being investigated by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance for alleged tax fraud — and New York-based attorney David Lurie says the president has no one but himself to blame for this information now being public knowledge. Writing in The Daily Beast, Lurie explains how Trump “overplayed his hand” in his efforts to block Vance’s office from gaining access to his taxes. Specifically, the president’s attorneys falsely claimed that Vance’s office was only running a narrow investigation into the president’s hush money payments to two women in the run up to the 2016 presidential election, and thus was not entitled to see his financial information. However, Vance’s office called the president’s bluff and publicly disclosed that it was probing much more...
    In what was ultimately declared a riot by law enforcement, a group calling for the burning down of police precincts in “every city” marched through a Portland neighborhood late Tuesday night. The incident comes as Portland has been rocked by over two months of violent riots and saw an explosion in violent crime last month. In one of the numerous videos that was posted to social media on Tuesday night, rioters could be heard chanting, “Every city, every town.

    An NYPD cop was arrested for the second time in less than a week on Monday — for stealing model cars, clothes and hygiene products from a Queens Walgreens just days after he was busted for knifing his former girlfriend, police said. Russell Ibraham, 27, is accused of stealing 10 model cars, Guru Nanda Essential Oils, a pair of Foster Grant sunglasses, clothing and two Every Man Jack deodorants from the pharmacy in South Ozone Park, cops said. He was arrested at about 2:30 a.m., cops said. One of the cars he allegedly stole was a Hollywood Rides diecast car, a toy car that’s a frequent collectors item. The cop, who joined the force in 2015, was charged with petty...
    Screengrab via Mark Urbanski/FacebookOne of the people who led the effort to paint Tampa's hideous and widely mocked “Back the Blue” mural has a criminal history.  On Sunday, Mark Urbanski celebrated the painting of the mural by posting about it on Facebook. “We made history today,” Urbanski wrote. “The first “Back the Blue” Mural drawn and painted in the United States at the Tampa Police Department HQ. Tampa Patriots!” The mural, which many have pointed out looks more like “Bock The Blub” is a source of controversy because it was painted at a time when local and national protests are calling for police defunding, reform and justice for Black, Brown and Indigenous people. Urbanski, 53, works for Lott’s Concrete and...
    By Ju-min Park TOKYO (Reuters) - To the casual observer, 95-year-old Lee Hak-rae could be just another elderly person in Japan. Surrounded by pictures of his family and paintings by his great-grandchildren, Lee potters about his cluttered living room on the outskirts of Tokyo. But Lee is obsessed by brutal events of 75 years ago that have defined his life: his recruitment into the Japanese army from then-occupied Korea in 1942; his role in building the Thai-Burma railway; being designated a World War Two criminal; and how, he says, he was tossed into the dustbin of history by both Japan and South Korea. Since recovering its sovereignty under the San Francisco Peace Treaty signed in 1951, and reviving military pensions...

    This year marks the 50th anniversary of Charles 'Sonny' Liston's death but even half a century on, his demise is shrouded in mystery.  Perhaps the most feared heavyweight champion of all time, Liston is ranked by boxing bible The Ring as the 10th greatest in the division of all time, and his fights with Muhammad Ali are among the most storied in history. Yet the tale of his life is dark and his death even more haunting.  Liston was one of the last boxing greats with indisputable ties to the mob.  Many believe those connections caught up with him on that frigid day in Nevada in December 1970 when his wife, Geraldine, found him dead in their Las Vegas home....
            by Angela Kelley  Leftists are trying to destroy America, her Constitution, her honor, and the patriots who love her. The corrupt leftists are on the streets of blue cities and are Democrats in positions of leadership in the United States government. The chaos you’ve seen on television every night for nearly two months (or not seen lately if you watch mainstream media) is horrifying, but it is routinely ignored—if not encouraged—by the leadership of the Left. “People will do what they do,” Nancy Pelosi said regarding the mob’s destruction of a Christopher Columbus statue on Independence Day. The everyday American (of whatever hue) is rightfully horrified at the amount of criminal activity he sees daily...
    Salt Lake City is a world apart from the rest of Utah culturally and politically, and its choice of district attorney shows that—at least on a surface level. Sim Gill, first elected to the seat in 2010, has made some modest criminal justice reform moves, like expressing support for reducing the number of people on probation or court supervision. As a first-generation immigrant from India, he’s one of the few Asian-American elected prosecutors nationwide. Faced with a conservative Republican challenger in 2018, Gill emerged victorious by 14 percentage points. However, DA Gill’s recent reaction to the vandalizing of his office shows a different, more vindictive side to him. In early July, protesters gathered to criticize Gill for refusing to indict the police officer who killed a...

    Attorney General Bill Barr plans an aggressive opening statement in his Congressional testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, in which he will dismiss the Russia investigation of Donald Trump as “bogus” and deny any “interference from the White House.” According to a CNN report of his written opening statement, Barr plans to push back hard on the House Democrat-led committee. “Ever since I made it clear that I was going to do everything I could to get to the bottom of the grave abuses involved in the bogus ‘Russiagate’ scandal, many of the Democrats on this Committee have attempted to discredit me by conjuring up a narrative that I am simply the President’s factotum who disposes of criminal cases...
    On the heels of the Seattle City Council's vehement support for cutting the police department by 50%, the council's next plan is to abolish prisons, municipal courts, and ultimately the entire criminal justice system, according to several documents leaked from the King County Executive's Office in Seattle. The documents, which read like a critical race theory paper or a far-left diversity training pamphlet, detail a plan that has apparently been years in the making. They argue America's criminal justice system is a "white supremacist institution" that must be dismantled entirely. Christopher Rufo, editor for City Journal and director of the Discovery Institute's Center on Wealth and Poverty, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday...
    Impeached President Donald Trump is all about money. It’s what motivates him, validates him, makes him happy, if that’s at all possible. And once upon a time, he had a lot more of it than presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. But those days are now over. Because not only do Biden and his allies have more money, but they aren’t beset by all the problems that come with an association with any Trump organization—fraud, waste, grift, and abuse. It wasn’t too long ago that Trump had a massive fundraising advantage over a hapless Biden, then stumbling through the Democratic primary on name recognition and latent affection from his eight years as President Barack Obama’s vice president. In March of this year,...

    At the crack of dawn on Jan. 16, 1935, 14 FBI agents surrounded a faraway hideout of the Barker-Karpis gang, hoping to force a surrender. A four-hour shootout ensued, marking the longest in FBI history, during which Ma Barker and her son Freddie were killed. The story caught national attention, dominating headlines and conversations across the country. But after more than eight decades later, the question remains: was Ma Barker really the criminal mastermind J.

    During his daily White House press briefing, President Donald Trump pushed back against the charge made by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that he is the nation’s first racist president, citing in his defense criminal justice reform, opportunity zones, and minority unemployment rates “before the China plague.” Earlier on Wednesday, at a virtual town hall, Biden railed against the long public track record of racist comments by Trump, who infamously pushed the Birther lie for years. The Democratic presidential nominee specifically called out Trump’s repeated use of the “China virus” to refer to Covid-19 as proof of “the way he deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from.” “Would you like...
    Where are all the frantic press releases from every corporation in America amid the worst mass shooting of black people in Chicago's recent memory? Where are the protests? The demands for more prison time? More cops? Or, if you only get your news from superficial corporate media sources, perhaps you don't know what I'm talking about. While most people bring flowers and tissues to funerals, that is not the Chicago way. There, they bring guns. According to CBS Chicago, mourners were attending the funeral of Donnie Weathersby, himself a black life cut down at age 31 by gang violence, when a car full of gunmen drove by and sprayed 60 bullets into Rhodes Funeral Services funeral home, wounding as...
    NBA One is sentenced to life in prison for rape and the other is a reputed NBA analyst. Eddie Johnson (the bad guy), on the left; and Eddie Johnson (the good guy), on the right. In NBA history there have been two players by the name of Eddie Johnson. The two coincided in the League for six years, between 1981 and 1987. Both had some brilliant seasons. The confusions between one and the other will remain in an anecdote if only what they did on the court was followed. But if their lives are checked after retirement, the matter is much more serious, since there was a good Eddie Johnson and a bad one. And it is easy...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A group of parents and teachers wants to help Minneapolis Public Schools with hiring school resource officer replacements. The district’s board voted to remove the officers earlier this summer after the killing of George Floyd. MPS is now replacing them with “public safety support specialists.” According to the job description posted on the MPS website, applicants are required to have a background in law enforcement. Those attending Sunday’s rally, including Whittier International Elementary employee Rajel Johnson, say that is not what they want for their students. “Who are they gonna call when there’s a serious situation at the high school level? They’re gonna call us … but they’re gonna end up calling the police anyway. Who are...

A report, published by the Human Rights Council, found that gold, diamond and bauxite mines in the area known as the Orinoco Mining Arc are mostly under the control of organised criminal or armed groups that impose their own rules through violence, exploitation and extortion, beating and even killing workers. Nearly 150 people are reported to have died in or around the gold mines from March 2016 to 2020. According to reports, bodies of miners are often thrown into old mining pits used as clandestine...

    New York City police union President Patrick Lynch blamed the municipal and state governments Tuesday for New York City’s escalating murder rate. “Our city council, our mayor’s office and the state legislature have handcuffed police officers and given the street back to the criminal,” Lynch told Fox News’ “Hannity” when asked why “18 people were shot last night.” “Remember just a few short years ago the city was out of control. Police officers literally took our street corners back block by block.” Lynch told interviewer Lawrence Jones.

During the past month, three leading Democrats have all issued statements blessing criminal acts. As some Seattle residents illegally seized several city blocks in June and christened the area the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, the Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan did not initially intervene. Instead, Durkan said CHAZ was “patriotic” and that it could turn into “a summer of love.” “Burning, rioting, and looting are criminal acts and should never be justified or excused,” said Heritage Foundation President Kay James. “It is an absolute scandal that political and corporate elites would not only excuse this behavior, but cheerlead the...

    Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” network political commentator and former Sen.

McCaskill said, “This was a criminal transaction. I think a legal theory is very sound that this was a broad criminal conspiracy that the president and Roger Stone were part of. They were part of hiding evidence against the president. The judge found that very clearly in this case that Roger Stone wasn’t lying to protect himself. He wasn’t lying to protect his wife or his family or some other criminal. He was lying to protect the president of the United States. So, there is a theory out there,...
