    A ball-busting female boss at a Brooklyn precinct is under investigation for allegedly stuffing a pair of her panties into a male colleague’s mouth, police sources told The Post on Monday. Sgt. Ann Marie Guerra, the second-in-command at the 72nd Precinct Detectives Squad, flipped out on Detective Victor Falcon when he complained about her leaving her underwear all over the unisex locker room, sources said. “They are f–king clean!” the 38-year-old married mom of two allegedly roared Oct. 7 — as she shoved a pair of her panties into Falcon’s mouth, a source said. A complaint was filed against Guerra...

    “We estimated that if these companies were all working together and supporting the same candidate, and really pulling out all the stops and using all the methods they have to manipulate, they could shift 10 percent of the voting population of America, with no-one knowing that they had done this, and without leaving a paper trail for authorities to track,” The 85-page briefing, titled “The Good Censor,” admits that Google and other tech platforms now “control the majority of online conversations” and have undertaken a “shift towards censorship” in response to unwelcome political events around the world.

    WASHINGTON – Hundreds of Central American migrants demanding asylum at the U.S. border with Mexico Sunday may be poor, but they have support of major foundations, corporations and billionaire George Soros for their well-organized caravan-style invasion. President Trump has instructed the Department of Homeland Security not to allow the caravan into the U.S. to hear their asylum claims. They are expected to attempt to enter the U.S. Sunday. The caravan is organized by a group called Pueblo sin Fronteras. But the effort is supported by the coalition CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, which includes Catholic Legal Immigration Network, the...

    President Trump tweeted on Sunday that border security officials continued their "full efforts ... to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens" attempting to travel to the U.S. southern border via a large migrant caravan — while also describing such caravans as "a disgrace to the Democrat Party." "People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the U.S. will turn them away," Trump tweeted. "The courts are asking the U.S. to do things that are not doable!"

    Shortened title. Full title: ARMY INVASION: Honduran Caravan Includes Military-Aged Male Migrants From Bangladesh, Haiti and Congo The migrant caravan from Honduras has been infiltrated by people from Bangladesh, Haiti, Congo and Sri Lanka, according to embedded reporters. Thousands of military-aged, virile mostly Honduran males breached the Guatemala border gate over the weekend and stormed the Mexican border bridge; Mexican authorities ultimately let the caravan through. A second caravan of 2,000 migrants formed on Sunday and started marching to Guatemala with a plan to reach the U.S. as their final destination. According to a Univision correspondent, Bangladeshis joined the migrant...

    Massachusetts state police have identified the Manchester teen they claim stabbed one of their troopers multiple times last Friday afternoon before being shot after a car chase across three states. Massachusetts State Police said Sunday night that Nghia Le, 18, of Manchester remains hospitalized at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester after being shot following an alleged attack on a Massachusetts state trooper in New Salem, Mass.

    This looks like another sign that the highly-anticipated blue wave could disappoint next month if it arrives at all. NBC News has looked at early voting data (provided by a company called TargetSmart) in eight states and found that GOP-affiliated voters are outpacing Democratic voters in seven of those. GOP-affiliated voters have surpassed Democratic-affiliated ones in early voting in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Tennessee and Texas, the data showed. Only in Nevada have Democratic-affiliated voters exceeded Republican-affiliated voters so far in early voting, according to the data… The latest data suggests robust enthusiasm among early Republican voters that could...

    **SNIP** In a hearing in a Washington, D.C. courtroom on Monday, Eric Dubelier of the American law firm Reed Smith argued that the case against the Russian consulting company known as Concord, which allegedly operated a “troll factory” in which the Russians created or stole the identities of hundreds of Americans online in order to sow discord and spread propaganda, should be dismissed. If people lying about who they are on the Internet and engaging in political speech is a crime, he argued, then every politician in America would be in prison. “This argument is beyond belief,” Dubelier said. “They...

It appears they set multiple flags on fire as this picture from the BBC shows a second flag set ablaze and treated like garbage:

    Intolerance and illiberalism, nakedly defined as abstractions or principles, are seldom if ever outwardly embraced by progressives. None but the most extreme will argue that intolerance and censorship are good things in themselves. Normally the preferred course is more subtle. Instead of openly arresting people who say the wrong things, the new purveyors of intolerance try to sublimate their prohibitions on speech, expression, and thought into more popularly accepted channels. Something must be done to make these prohibitions more palatable, because there is still a great deal of respect in America for freedom of thought, speech, and expression. How...

    ...On Monday, the president did not elaborate on the “unknown Middle Easterners” that he suggested are traveling among the migrant families seeking asylum in the United States. But the phenomenon is not a new one, though it has not proven to be a significant problem over the years. After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when lawmakers pursued measures to close immigration loopholes, the notion of Middle Eastern smuggling rings penetrating American borders became part of a list of fears about the country’s vulnerabilities. But there have not been any instances of attempted terrorism plots

    As we previously reported, Republican Senator Mitch McConnell was dining at Havana Rumba with his wife, Elaine Chao, in Louisville, Kentucky, last week when a group of angry liberals began to verbally harass him. One man began to pound on McConnell's table, then proceeded to throw his bag of leftovers out the front door of the building. The video below actually shows the attack on McConnell and his wife, but if you watch until the end, you can see a man wearing a camouflage hat defending the Republican Senator against his attacker.

    Elon Musk announced Sunday that the first tunnel of a proposed underground transportation network across Los Angeles County would open Dec. 10. “The first tunnel is almost done,” Musk tweeted to his 23.1 million followers shortly after 5 p.m. Musk’s Boring Co. is building the tunnel beneath the city of Hawthorne, part of his grand vision for a transportation network that whisks commuters across the county. Last year, Hawthorne officials approved the Boring Co.’s request to tunnel west from Space X headquarters. At the time, they said the tunnel had extended 500 feet. The company has said its technology...

    Thousands of migrants from various countries in Central America forged on over the weekend, with numbers growing to more than 7,000 despite threats from President Donald Trump that he’d dispatch the military should they reach the U.S. border. The fleet is composed mainly of individuals seeking jobs that aren’t available in their home countries or trying to find safety from drug and gang violence, but for a number of them, this wasn’t their first time trying to reach the U.S.

    MAPLEWOOD, NJ - The Essex County Freeholders called for the ouster of the New Jersey Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson but have not budged on ending its controversial contract with the agency. At its Wednesday meeting in Maplewood, the freeholders board passed a resolution supporting other lawmakers who have called for Emilio Karim Dabul to be terminated from his position as ICE spokesperson. Dabul has publicly defended people who the Southern Poverty Law Center have labeled anti-Muslim. Dabul referred questions to ICE headquarters in Washington D.C. A spokesperson from headquarters responded with a brief statement, which included a link...

    Half a century on from the publication of Schaeffer’s seminal books The God Who Is There and Escape from Reason (1968), our culture spins ever faster into irrationality. Schaeffer predicted that plunging below the “line of despair” would lead to social collapse just as surely as the Roman Empire collapsed amid decadence, self-indulgence, and immorality. Others (both Christian and non-Christian) sounded alarms as well. Philip Rieff warned in The Triumph of the Therapeutic (1966) that a society released from all restraints would implode. Christopher Lasch argued in The Culture of Narcissism (1979) that no community can flourish where every individual...
