    Medical examiners in New York have ruled that the mysterious deaths of two sisters found dead and duct taped together on the banks of the Hudson River was a double suicide. The cause of death was drowning. The bodies of Rotana Ferea, 23 and Tala Farea, 16 were discovered on October, 24 2018 near the George Washington Bridge. They were quickly identified as Saudi citizens who had gone missing from a shelter-like facility, possibly for abused women, in Fairfax, Virginia in August. "Today, my office determined that the death of the Farea sisters was the result of suicide, in which...

    **SNIP** “One night I confronted him very calm about a lie he had just told me straight to my face. What happened next was a rage that I had never witnessed to that magnitude. He was becoming a person I had never seen before. The next morning, he came into the room I was sleeping in. I was laying across the bed with my headphones on, listening to podcast on my phone. He said he was about to leave town for the weekend and told me to take the trash out. Given the explosive outrage that occurred the night before,...

    The Club for Growth, a conservative advocacy organization, is taking aim at Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, focusing on past domestic violence accusations against her husband. “Claire McCaskill has been giving the back of her hand to voters and padding the pockets of her family for a generation… her husband’s treatment of women and her turning a blind eye while funding the agencies that pay her own family is hypocrisy at its finest. Missourians deserve better,” Club for Growth spokeswoman said in a statement provide to the Washington Examiner. The group noted that Suzanne Shepard, the ex-wife of Joseph Shepard,...

    New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger confirmed a meeting with President Donald Trump, revealing on Sunday that he urged the president to stop calling the media “fake news.” “I told him that although the phrase ‘fake news’ is untrue and harmful, I am far more concerned about his labeling journalists ‘the enemy of the people,’” he explained in a five-paragraph statement about his meeting with the president. Trump revealed the meeting first on Twitter, noting that he had an “interesting” meeting with Sulzberger. “Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media...

    Liberal business executives are leaping like lemmings from President Donald Trump's manufacturing advisory council. Good riddance. These silly string-spined CEOs have sided with social justice agitators, Beltway media enablers and Democratic resistance knuckleheads who believe Trump was wrong to condemn violence and hatred on all sides of the political spectrum. Never mind that of the four people arrested after the violent outbreak in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend, two were identified with the white nationalist movement and the other two were left-wing "antifa" counterprotesters. One of those radical leftists is the man identified as having reportedly punched a female reporter for...

    A new study shows that only 17 of 35,413 domestic violence incidents resulted in a gunshot wound. The study was based on police reports collected in Philadelphia in 2013. From psychcentral.com: A new study shows that when guns are part of domestic violence, women actually suffer fewer injuries, but experience greater fear. According to a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, thatÂ’s because when a gun enters the situation, women are more likely to back down than fight back. This is consistent with the use of guns in other crimes, and in self-defense. It is not limited to women....

    Former CIA operative and 2016 third-party presidential candidate Evan McMullin took to Twitter and CNN on Wednesday to defend rogue intelligence agents who break the law to leak classified information, saying President Donald Trump “presents a threat to the country.” In response to President Trump’s tweets earlier Wednesday, in which he alleged that elements of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and National Security Agency were engaged in “Russia”-style political operations, McMullin tweeted: The obvious implication was that McMullin believes that intelligence and law enforcement agents are entitled to break the law based on their own views that the President of...

    It used to be pretty obvious which cars, trucks and SUVs were built in the U.S. (Detroit's Big Three of Ford, GM and Chrysler, although Chrysler has since merged with Fiat) and which weren't (everything else). Then in the 1980's the Japanese started building cars here, which made for some interesting arguments about what constituted an 'American' car. But in today's global economy, it's even harder to answer the question: Is your car made in America?Many consumers looking to buy an American-built vehicle have a difficult time identifying one that's assembled here with 100-percent American-built components. That's because it's impossible,...

    As Russian pilots fly home from Syria, they can look forward to triumphant welcomes. Their commander-in-chief, Vladimir Putin, is the focus of almost as much fawning adulation — even from the supposedly hostile Western media. Once again, the Russian president is being portrayed as a strategic genius, adept at wrong-footing America and Europe. Yet the self-congratulation conveniently ignores some awkward truths. Far from making a cool and calculated decision to intervene in Syria, Putin was compelled to deploy his forces in order to rescue a feckless ally. His campaign has yet to achieve any of its stated goals. Worse, Russia...

    Fox host Bill O'Reilly loses custody of children amid abuse allegations Published time: 1 Mar, 2016 Fox News Channel host Bill O'Reilly lost custody of his teenage children over allegations of domestic abuse by his ex-wife. The New York Appellate Division unanimously ruled that O'Reilly's 13- and 17-year-old children should live full time with their mother, Maureen McPhilmy, who was married to the conservative commentator for 15 years. A 1,400 word opinion using anonymous names was issued by the court last week, but the media only figured out who it was this week. The ruling states it was the "clearly...

    With the pubic distracted by the FBI battling Apple for an iPhone backdoor, President Obama is secretly working to trash President Ronald Reagan’s restrictions on the number of federal agencies that can spy on Americans and others. At a secret meeting of the United States National Security Council on Feb 25, President Obama approved a draft 21-page memo relaxing a Cold War Reagan-era directive called Executive Order 12333 that restricted the number of government agencies that can access, without court order or Presidential approval, the contents of phone calls, emails and data the U.S. National Security Agency vacuums up from...
