    NY POST ^ | February 23, 2017 | Chris Perez
    The FBI shot down a recent request from the White House to publicly blast media reports about the alleged communications between President Trump’s associates and the Russians during the 2016 campaign, a report says. Multiple US officials who’ve been briefed on the matter told CNN that White House officials had been asking the bureau to say the stories were wrong, and that there had been no contacts between the two parties whatsoever — but they refused. The communications between the Trump administration and the FBI are said to be a direct violation of government procedures, which bar contact during ongoing...

  • Obama Justice Department’s bogus report on racism by Ferguson Police Department

    New York Post ^ | March 9, 2015 | john R. Lott Jr.
    Addressing the nation from Selma, Ala., on Saturday, President Obama said that while racism may be “no longer endemic,” as it was 50 years ago, his Justice Department’s report on Ferguson shows that the “nation’s racial history still casts its long shadow upon us.” Sorry: The Justice report doesn’t prove disparate treatment, let alone discrimination. In fact, it looks more like something ginned up to distract from the embarrassing fact that Justice (in another report released the same day) wound up fully validating the findings of the Ferguson grand jury. Racism is serious, and those engaging in it should be...

    BLOOMFIELD, NJ (WABC) -- The tale of the police dashcam video has now helped clear a Bloomfield, New Jersey man who faced a multitude of criminal charges, including eluding police and assault. Investigative Reporter Sarah Wallace obtained the dashcam tapes, and has spoken exclusively with the 30-year old DJ who was looking at years in prison. It was quite a turnabout, all the criminal charges against Marcus Jeter have been dismissed, and two Bloomfield police officers have been indicted for falsifying reports, and one of them, for assault. A third pleaded guilty early on to tampering. It's all thanks to...

    19-year-old Kendrec McDade was shot multiple times by police in Pasadena last March while fleeing. Cops continued to shoot when they mistook their own shots for shots from the suspect. Police say they believed McDade had a gun based on his behavior during the foot chase (holding his waistband) and on a 911 call reporting as much. The 911 caller, Oscar Carillo, was arrested on an involuntary manslaughter charge a month after the shooting after admitted to lying about being robbed at gunpoint in order to elicit a faster police response. Federal immigration authorities also asked that he be detained...

    Mila Kunis has reportedly broken her word -- and, along with it, one lonely Marine's heart. Contrary to reports earlier this week, it appears that the "Black Swan" actress won't be attending the Marine Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore in North Carolina this November -- because she has filming commitments that will keep her too busy for traveling. Kunis accepted Moore's invitation to the ball after some prodding from her "Friends With Benefits" co-star, Justin Timberlake, on Monday. After Timberlake alerted Kunis to Moore's come-on, which he posted on YouTube, he urged, "You need to do it for your...

    In response to a request from Republicans on the House Natural Resources Committee, the Department of Interior's acting Inspector General, Mary Kendall, announced she is opening an investigation into whether a Department of Interior report recommending an offshore drilling ban was manipulated to appear as if the ban was endorsed by seven experts from the National Academy of Engineers. The report endorsed a six-month ban on deepwater drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf, and explicitly stated "the recommendations contained in this report have been peer-reviewed by seven experts identified by the National Academy of Engineering."

    Investigators are calling Monday's teacher disappearance a hoax, saying she's responsible for the anti-gay slur spray painted on her garage door, the broken window on her house and the blood and hair found in the kitchen. However, they stated, she hasn't committed a crime and will face no charges in an ordeal that she contends can't remember anything about. "We don't feel like she was abducted. There is no evidence she was abducted," said Capt. Vic Hollifield of the McDowell County Sheriff's Office. "We feel like what we saw at the scene was overkill versus what we usually see with...

  • Secret Service probes death threats against Obama ("Kill him" rumor at McCain/Palin Rally)

    The US Secret Service has investigated an alleged death threat against Democrat Barack Obama that was yelled out on Monday at a rally for his Republican rival John McCain and running mate Sarah Palin. The probe by the service that protects US presidents, past and present, visiting world leaders and US presidential candidates, stems from a report by The Washington Post about a shout, “kill him,” heard during the rally when Obama’s name came up. The alleged threat was made when Palin was speaking of Obama’s relations with former 1960s radical Bill Ayers, whose group “The Weathermen” carried out a...

    This is definitely a vanity post. My first, but it has been bothering me for several days and I have toget it off my chest. It does have serious social implications, however, and I hope not uninteresting to Freepers. Last Saturday night, my brother (46) and I (43) decided to go to a movie, King Fu Panda. Being an animated feature, we were wary of screaming kids so we specifically chose a showtime after 10PM. Four guys came in at the last minute and sat four seats away, with empty seats between us. Five minutes into the movie, the guy...

    Rape is a four-letter word. When police get a report of one, it flies to the top of their priority list. Even, police say, when that reaction is exploited. Sexual assaults, like other crimes, are sometimes falsely reported. People pretend to have been raped for reasons ranging from a cry for attention to hiding an infidelity. In a recent Grapevine case, police believe a woman who reported being raped in her apartment may have been looking for an excuse to break her lease. After committing more than a week of resources to the investigation, Grapevine officers concluded that the evidence...
