    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — U.S. Marshals are searching for a Central Pennsylvania man accused of threatening President Trump and other officials. WNEP reports that Marshals are looking for 26-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pennsylvania. Authorities say he should be considered armed and dangerous. Christy reportedly posted a social media post threatening to “put a bullet in the head of President Trump.” The post has since been deleted. Christy also posted about Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli. WNEP also reports that this isn’t the first time Christy has been in trouble for making threats. He and his father were sentenced to...

    Greg Rinckey, an attorney specializing in military law, said it was rare for an officer out of West Point to receive an other-than-honorable discharge. He added that it was also possible the military academy could seek repayment of the cost of Rapone’s education because he did not serve the full five-year service obligation required upon graduation.

    Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the UN, announced the decision on Tuesday evening, saying that the US could no longer be part of a UN body that was a “protector of human rights abusers, and a cesspool of political bias.” “Look at the council membership and you see an appalling disrespect for human rights,” she said, citing member countries China, Venezuela, Russia, Cuba, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Egypt. She went on to speak at length about how the council displayed a “chronic anti-Israel bias” and was “not worthy of its name.”

    Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is calling on President Donald Trump to end the “heartless” policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the U.S. border. “Children shouldn’t be used as a negotiating tool,” Bush tweeted on Monday. “@realDonaldTrump should end this heartless policy and Congress should get an immigration deal done that provides for asylum reform, border security and a path to citizenship for Dreamers.” The failed presidential candidate’s plea came in response to President Trump’s tweet in which he vowed to stop “some of the worst criminals on earth,” from using children to illegally enter the U.S....

    On Sunday, a day we as a nation set aside to honor fathers and the bonds of family, I was among the millions of Americans who watched images of children who have been torn from their parents. In the six weeks between April 19 and May 31, the Department of Homeland Security has sent nearly 2,000 children to mass detention centers or foster care. More than 100 of these children are younger than 4 years old. The reason for these separations is a zero-tolerance policy for their parents, who are accused of illegally crossing our borders. I live in a...

    It appears as though, with the long-awaited release of the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report exposing anti-Trump bias by senior FBI investigators, Republican Congressional leadership was finally ready to call for an end to the Special Counsel’s investigation. After House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) spoke out, ABC’s Good Morning America was fearful for the future of the investigation on Sunday morning. “There's news this morning in the Russia investigation. New pressure on the Special Counsel Robert Mueller with two top Republicans calling for Mueller to wrap it up,” announced co-anchor, Dan...

    President Donald Trump's lawyers and special counsel Robert Mueller are hurtling toward a showdown over a yearlong investigation into the president's conduct, with Mueller pushing to write up his findings by summer's end and Trump's lawyers strategizing how to rebut a report that could spur impeachment hearings. The confrontation is coming to a head as Trump and his allies ratchet up their attacks on the special counsel probe, seizing on a report released Thursday by the Justice Department's inspector general that castigated FBI officials for their conduct during the 2016 Hillary Clinton email investigation. Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal attorney,...

    One of the interesting aspects of the IG report is the documented use of personal email by participants within the FBI “small group” Mid-Year-Exam (MYE) team. [pg 424] One of those documented examples involves FBI Agent Peter Strzok downloading the content of the sealed Anthony Weiner Indictment, October 29, 2016, to his personal email address. Unauthorized extraction of a ‘sealed SDNY indictment‘, and transmission to a non-secure system, is a felony.

The event is one of untold hundreds of events taking place across the country this month, designated “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month” in 2009 by former President Barack Obama. Since then, the global collective LGBTQ “celebration” has exploded into “WorldPride,” defined as “the international political and cultural event that promotes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues.” The addition of Q is for “queer” or “questioning.”...
