    It was a shocking scene at one of the city’s most visited landmarks. CBS2 political reporter Marcia Kramer obtained exclusive images of what some call the latest public insult of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s New York City. Pictures were snapped of a homeless man taking a bath in the fountain at Columbus Circle, a popular city landmark that is now the bathtub of a bum. The man who took the photo called the incident simply appalling.

And yet she kept calling the people behind the “highly edited” videos and anyone else who is pro-life “militant,” comparing them to murderers. Richards...

    Donations to the Clinton Foundation by Swiss bank UBS increased tenfold after Hillary Clinton intervened to settle a dispute with the IRS early in her tenure as secretary of state, according to a published report. According to the Wall Street Journal, total donations by UBS to the foundation grew from less than $60,000 at the end of 2008 to approximately $600,000 by the end of 2014.

Gorton was responding to another online user who posted a comment in favor of more people owning guns. The original Facebook status was also posted by an apparent gun rights supporter, the Military Times reported. “This is why I always carry...

    Leave it to Team Obama to expect Jews to accept a Hail Mary. The Justice Department confirmed Tuesday that Jonathan Pollard, who spied for Israel, was granted parole and will be released by November, after having served 30 years in prison. The news came almost a week after Justice officials said they wouldn’t object if a parole panel granted his release. Israel and many American Jews have long sought Pollard’s freedom, arguing that he’d spied for an ally, Israel, not an enemy, and that his life sentence was harsher than what most other spies received.
  • Obama to offer Pell grants to prisoners

    The Obama administration will soon give some inmates the chance to take college courses on the government's dime. The Education Department and Justice Department on Friday are expected to announce a pilot program giving some prisoners access to federal Pell grants. The aim is to test how effective correctional education programs can be in breaking the cycle of repeat offenders. Congress banned prisoners from being eligible for Pell grants in 1994. Since then, the prison population has grown significantly to 1.6 million nationwide, and calls for reform are coming from President Obama -- who recently became the first sitting president...

Police tell the Connecticut Post they arrested Wallace Berg Monday after a neighbor showed them a video he took of a naked Berg in the bushes outside Berg’s home. Police say the neighbor told them he confronted Berg who then stopped the indecent behavior, covered himself with a grill cover, apologized and went into his house. Berg was charged with public indecency and second-degree breach of peace. He was released after posting a $10,000 bond and is due in Superior Court...

    Abortion is legal, but taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for it. Democrats have been picking fight after fight in the culture wars, believing they have the upper hand with socially liberal younger votes. But that assumption is now being tested in the wake of videos of Planned Parenthood doctors blithely discussing the harvesting of fetal body parts. The videos, secretly recorded by anti-abortion activists, show the doctors discussing, among other things, the best way to ensure a “less crunchy” aborted fetus. It’s gruesome stuff, especially for anyone who has viewed the sonogram of an unborn child. Planned Parenthood’s defenders are...

    A major feminist author and former Planned Parenthood member shredded the U.S. media Wednesday for its “shockingly unprofessional” failure to cover the release of secret videos showing alleged trafficking in fetal organs by employees of Planned Parenthood. Camille Paglia, a self-described “dissident feminist” and widely-syndicated cultural critic, made her remarks as part of a three-day interview series with the website Salon. She was discussing her overall displeasure with the modern state of the American media, and said the case of Planned Parenthood was a key recent example of its decline:

    WASHINGTON — Under fire for its role in providing fetal tissue for research, Planned Parenthood asked the government's top health scientists Wednesday to convene a panel of independent experts to study the issues surrounding the little-known branch of medicine. Planned Parenthood's request to the National Institutes of Health came as Senate Republicans pressed their fight to bar the organization from receiving federal aid. Likely opposition from at least one GOP senator highlighted the long odds the GOP will face in a Senate showdown vote expected early next week. The group also took its websites down after a hacker attack it...

CMP is the organization behind the series of three videos released over the past three weeks exposing the alleged harvesting and sale of body parts from aborted babies by Planned Parenthood – body parts that are then purchased by StemExpress. CMP has alleged that the fees paid by StemExpress to Planned Parenthood violate federal law prohibiting the sale and trafficking of human tissue. While Planned Parenthood...

    Planned Parenthood is in real trouble. Three shocking videos released over recent days -- with more on the way, apparently -- have shown officials at the abortion giant haggling over the price of aborted baby organs. It's ghastly, gruesome stuff, replete with one representative describing how she alters her late term abortion procedures to "crush" the baby in specific areas as to preserve sought-after and lucrative body parts. Another laughs that higher prices could help her buy "a Lamborghini." The abortion lobby argues that fetuses are not human beings worthy of legal protection, while selling the intact human organs of...

James Lankford of Oklahoma and Jeff Sessions of Alabama said they’d consider supporting an effort to attach a spending rider that would...

It’s plain to see that the population control organization is involved in the illegal marketing of fetal body parts, and its senior medical director, Deborah Nucatola, basically admitted that the abortionists are still using the partial-birth procedure that has been illegal since 2003. Mary Gatter, another PP medical director, ghoulishly suggested “using a less crunchy technique to get more whole specimens,” even though it...

    Why has the Donald Trump candidacy—which so many professionals and pundits at first dismissed as a joke—flared this summer? In the first week of July, 15 percent of Republicans supported Trump for president in a YouGov poll. By the third week, that support had almost doubled, to 28 percent—with another 10 percent listing him as their second choice. Something happened in July to send Trump’s numbers soaring. That something may have been the murder of Kathryn Steinle. On July 5, the 32-year-old Steinle posed with her father for a photograph on a San Francisco pier at 6:30 on a Wednesday...

    Expect the Mongols Nation case to be dismissed by Judge David O. Carter next Monday afternoon. A hearing on the dismissal is scheduled for 2 p.m. in Carter’s courtroom in the Ronald Reagan Federal Building and Courthouse in Santa Ana, California. The case has attracted national attention. At issue is the question of whether the government, or a couple of rogue federal prosecutors named Christopher Brunwin and Stephen R. Welk, can forbid members of the Mongols Motorcycle Club from wearing the club’s distinctive insignia. Brunwin and Welk have made careers of this. They attempted to seize the Mongols trademarks in...

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced that U.S District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan today threatened to hold the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service and Justice Department attorneys in contempt of court after the IRS failed to produce status reports and newly recovered emails of Lois Lerner, former director of the Exempt Organizations Unit of the IRS, as he had ordered on July 1, 2015. During the a status hearing today, Sullivan warned that the failure to follow his order was serious and the IRS and Justice Department’s excuses for not following his July 1 order were “indefensible, ridiculous, and...

    Has there been a Rose Mary Woods at work in Hillary Clinton’s management of her e-mails? The State Department insists that they have made public all of Hillary’s e-mails pertaining to the security of the Benghazi consulate and the Libya mission from 2012. If that’s true, The Daily Beast’s Alexa Corse and Shane Harris report, then no one on Hillary’s team — including the Secretary of State herself — bothered to communicate for two months about the rise in violence in the spring that precipitated the attack on the consulate itself at the end of the summer: Among the...

    Adrian Jerry Gonzalez lured 8-year-old Madyson Middleton into his Santa Cruz apartment, raped and killed her, and put her body in a box, investigators said. Rosell announced Wednesday morning that he charged the 15-year-old as an adult, and identified the boy for the first time. "He is charged with one count of murder, (with) special circumstances involving sexual offenses, lying in wait, and kidnapping," Rosell said. According to Police Chief Kevin Vogel, Gonzalez lured Madyson into his apartment. The young girl trusted the boy enough to follow him into the apartment because he was her neighbor at the Tannery Arts...

    The Wisconsin State Legislature is moving quickly on a bill to ban any sale or donation of fetal tissue. The legislation languished in the last two sessions, but is getting renewed momentum because of videos released showing top Planned Parenthood executives haggling about the price of parts from aborted babies. Walker enjoys Republican majorities in both the assembly and state senate, with a 63-36 assembly lead. Scott Walker already signed a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks, and would likely welcome the new ban of fetal tissue sales to burnish his national reputation among social conservatives as pro-life. The U.S....

    A federal judge rebuked the Obama administration’s IRS Wednesday for refusing to divulge documents, including Lois G. Lerner emails, and warned he would hold those who break his orders in contempt. Judge Emmet G. Sullivan called the administration’s defense “nonsensical” and said the IRS must release documents every Monday to Judicial Watch, a conservative public interest law firm that requested the documents under open-records laws, and then sued after the IRS didn’t comply. “Officers of the court who fail to comply with court orders will be held in contempt,” Judge Sullivan said in a published order. On July 1, at...

    An illegal immigrant suspected of murdering one woman, wounding another and attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl was released earlier this month by Ohio sheriff's deputies after U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents told them not to hold him, law enforcement officials said Tuesday. “I have somebody who we don’t know who he is, why he is in this country, why he is here illegally and why he allegedly committed a murder," Painesville Municipal Court Judge Michael Cicconetti thundered at Razo's arraignment, noting the suspect has no green card, birth certificate or driver's license. "I can't set a bond high...

    This week, the Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group dedicated to unmasking the atrocities committed by taxpayer-funded abortion juggernaut Planned Parenthood, released its latest in a series of undercover videos about the organization. In this video, Dr. Savita Ginde, vice president and medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, calmly explains to the undercover reporter that the organs of babies killed in the womb can be sold separately. "I think a per-item thing works a little better," she tells the faux buyer while standing over a tray of kidney and spinal cord from a recently aborted baby....
