    The de Blasio administration, an administration plagued with corruption and poor policy, can now add one more item to their laundry list: child porn.

Schwartz was popped for having over 3,000 images and 89 videos on a laptop. Some of the material discovered involved baby girls aging as young as 6 months old, court documents revealed Friday. NYPD computer-crimes investigators accepted Schwartz’s surrender Thursday morning. Schwartz has been under investigation since March 29, 2017, when...

He added, “What you have is an emerging left-wing fascism. She’s part of it. And I think we have to be prepared to protect ourselves. Frankly, the truth is she ought to be arrested for saying she...

    The Green Party’s presidential and vice presidential candidates were charged for pulling a stunt usually committed by juvenile delinquents — they spray painted graffiti on a bulldozer. As a result, the Morton County Sheriff Department in North Dakota issued arrest warrants against Jill Stein and her running mate, Ajamu Baraka. They’ve each been charged with criminal trespass and criminal mischief — both misdemeanors.   The incident happened Tuesday when both Stein and Baraka participated in a protest staged by environmentalists and a local Native American tribe against the Dakota Access Pipeline.   Evidence includes a photo of Stein spray-painting the word...

Orlando 'Orly' Salinas, 55, who had spent 12 years reporting for Fox News in Miami, was taken into custody on Tuesday in Montgomery County, Virginia, after being indicted on charges stemming from an incident that took place in January. Court documents in the case indicate that the alleged victim was not Salinas' wife, but another woman. While the indictments, cited by The Roanoke Times, offer scant details regarding Salinas' alleged offenses, they state that the former reporter took actions against the victim by...

    A Dutch-Turkish journalist has been detained in Turkey after posting tweets critical of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, her newspaper said. Ebru Umar wrote a column for the Dutch Metro newspaper criticising President Erdogan's clampdown on dissent. Since 2014, prosecutors have launched cases against more than 1,800 journalists for insulting Mr Erdogan. Last week, Germany allowed the prosecution of a prominent TV satirist for insulting Mr Erdogan to proceed. Jan Boehmermann had read a crude poem on TV, aimed at testing German law. Germany and the Netherlands have old lese-majeste laws against insulting the head of a friendly state. Both...

    Before becoming a Florida senator or a 2016 Republican presidential hopeful, Marco Rubio was apparently just another kid caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. After a bad first year at college in Missouri, Rubio returned home to Miami shortly before the summer of 1990, when he was arrested in May at age 18 for being in a public park after it had closed for the night, the Washington Post reported Thursday. The misdemeanor offense was eventually dismissed, and most of the documentation that led to the dismissal of charges has been destroyed by the Miami-Dade County court...
