    Police in Scotland have arrested the paragliding protester who was able to get surprisingly close to President Donald Trump on Friday night as the President visited his Turnberry golf resort. In a statement, Police Scotland said a 55-year-old man has been charged and will appear in Ayr Sheriff Court on Monday. After the President arrived at his Turnberry resort, the paraglider, a Greenpeace activist, flew by the President with a banner that read, "TRUMP, WELL BELOW PAR #RESIST," and then managed to escape. Greenpeace tweeted an image of the incident with the caption, "We've just delivered a message to @RealDonaldTrump...
  • CNN political director: Strzok's claim that Trump texts aren't biased 'flat wrong on its face'

    CNN political director David Chalian said Thursday that FBI agent Peter Strzok's assertion that anti-Trump texts he sent to another FBI official in 2016 do not indicate bias "is just flat wrong on his face." Chalian was referring to an explosive text exchange between Strzok and FBI official Lisa Page, with whom he was reportedly having an affair, in which Strzok called then-candidate Donald Trump's behavior "horrible" and "disgusting." "...[Y]ou should put nothing in text or e-mail that you are not comfortable seeing on the front page of 'The New York Times' or on CNN's banner," Chalian said during an...

    The nation's first and most successful occupation of a federal immigration building has entered a stalemate. The demonstrators at what federal officials characterize as a "very, very peaceful" protest camp outside the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building on Southwest Macadam Avenue have settled in for the long haul. Federal agents swept protesters away from the ICE building's front entrance June 28, allowing the building to fully reopen July 3. Now the two organizations—ICE and Occupy ICE—are uneasy neighbors. Last weekend, small children in the protest camp played with bubbles as their parents crafted protest signs and bopped to dated...

    Ann Mongoven knows her Highland Park neighborhood is gaining population at a steady clip. Despite that, she opposes any proposal to add more police officers in St. Paul. “That doesn’t make any sense to me,” said Mongoven, an active member of the St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Minneapolis, after a long pause and an incredulous look. “I live in Highland and we are going to be welcoming new people. … We can do that neighbor-to-neighbor. We don’t need the police to get to know our neighbors.” On Monday, 14 members of the faith-based social justice coalition Isaiah gathered...

    PERU, Ind. >> Some drug traffickers appear to be using President Donald Trump’s image to brand their illegal wares. An Indiana State Police news release about 129 arrests in a series of drug busts in northern Indiana includes a photo of what police describe as “Trump-shaped ecstasy pills.” They are orange and stamped with a face. On the back are the words “great again,” an apparent reference to Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”(continued)

    Seattle cops flee the force in 'mass exodus' due to frustrations with city's politics, report says By Kathleen Joyce | Fox News At least 41 cops have left the Seattle Police Department this year, many of them reportedly citing frustration with the city's politics and a perceived lack of support from local officials. Though documents showed some officers left the force due to retirement, a source in the department told Q13 FOX some 20 officers left and sought employment at other law enforcement agencies. The source also said younger officers "don’t feel appreciated" and the number of those leaving who...

    Ala Ochumare stood at the center of a candle-lit circle and read a two-page list of New Haveners who have been killed in the city since 2010. That was part of the opening of a Wednesday evening vigil near the corner of Henry Street and Dixwell Avenue, close to where Trayvon Foster was murdered last Saturday. Ochumare organized the event through Black Lives Matter New Haven to mourn and provide a “healing space” for those who have been affected by the loss of New Haven’s own. “Black and brown lives matter. It’s unfortunate we have to say that,” Ochumare noted....

    How many times do we have to learn that socialism doesn't work, that, as Margaret Thatcher said, at some point you run out of "other people's money," that sooner or later all the teary idealism, the stirring strains of The Internationale, devolve into gulags and death squads? Wasn't the Soviet Union enough, Communist China, Cambodia, North Korea, Cuba, etc....? Now those death squads appear to have surfaced in Venezuela, the wealthiest country in Latin America before Hugo Chavez brought his brand of socialism to the then oil-rich nation. Venezuelan security forces have carried out hundreds of arbitrary killings under the...

    Wichita, KS — Earlier this year, a cop was fired after he shot a little girl inside her own home while trying to kill her dog. Showing that they are willing to hold their own accountable, the officer was charged with felony aggravated battery in March. And now, months after the original incident, the video has finally been released from the officer’s body camera. On Thursday, Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett released body camera video from officer Dexter Betts which shows him attempt to kill a 35 pound dog and strike a small 9-year-old girl instead. In January, Betts...

    Byron York describes the fall of James Comey. Byron notes that Comey, who presents himself as the Last Honest Man, is now under investigation for possibly mishandling classified and confidential information in his apparently all-consuming desire to get Trump. The view of Comey as the Last Honest Man was widely shared by mainstream media and among liberals after he faced down top representatives of the Bush administration in that dramatic encounter at the hospital bed of then-Attorney General Ashcroft. And during the 1990s the view of Comey as a man of integrity, though not the last such man, was almost...

    Irish Central ^ | June 9, 2018 | Niall O'Dowd
    The NYPD police union this week honored heroic members of the force who stopped recent tragedies -- and most were Irish cops. Ironic isn’t it at a time when Mayor de Blasio is specifically omitting outreach to the Irish community in the latest notifications about the NYPD entrance exam in the name of diversity. Last year a $54 million campaign to widen the base of the department was announced. The press release stated there will be a “particular focus on African American, Asian, Jewish, Muslim, women and LGBTQ applicants," according to the request for proposals released last October. No Irish...

    Facts have a notorious racial bias. The Rev. Jerrod Moultrie, pastor of Oakgrove Missionary Baptist Church in Fairmont, was stopped April 12 in Timmonsville, S.C., by police Officer Chris Miles for not using a turn signal while making a left turn. At 3:53 a.m. on April 13, Moultrie posted on Facebook, “Tonight I was racially profiled by Timmonsville officer cause I was driving a Mercedes Benz and going home in a nice neighborhood. But you know tomorrow they will hear from me.” In his Facebook account of the traffic stop Moultrie, who also is president of the Timmonsville NAACP chapter,...

    Attorneys for the teenager accused of running over and killing Baltimore County police Officer Amy S. Caprio called for the public release of body camera footage from the incident, saying their client was in “survival mode” when he ran over the officer. J. Wyndal Gordon and Warren Brown, two prominent Baltimore defense attorneys who are representing 16-year-old Dawnta Harris, said Thursday morning that the footage will help answer questions surrounding Caprio’s death, and ultimately help their client’s case. They called on Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott D. Shellenberger to release the video. “I think it will put a lot of...

    It's hard to think of a more volatile mix: Four young black males from Baltimore City, accused in the death of a white female police officer in Baltimore County. Authorities say three of the teenagers were breaking into homes when the fourth ran the officer over in a stolen Jeep. Predictably enough, social media, call-in radio and other forums blew up. A sampling from the Baltimore County Police & Fire Facebook page: "I was hoping they'd kill him during apprehension. What a waste of life. He's currently breathing air some decent person could be breathing." "I personally am tired of...

    It happens now with almost mind-numbing regularity , followed by oversaturated media coverage and activist outrage, threats of a civil suit, and almost universal consensus that America’s racist past continues to plague even the wealthiest of its African-American inhabitants. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. We exist in an era where racial hoaxes for “social justice” proliferate..And we have just been witness to two infamously mischaracterized accountings by prominent African-Americans, who falsified incidents of supposed police misconduct....Both disgustingly-twisted and opportunistic tales further prove that body cameras are a necessity, not a luxury in 21st-century America. A potential assailant can 'draw and fire' a...
