    EL CAJON, Calif. — US authorities tried twice to deport the unarmed black man fatally shot by police in El Cajon, California, but his native Uganda refused to take him. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Thursday in a statement to the Associated Press that Alfred Olango stopped reporting to officers in February 2015. Spokeswoman Virginia Kice didn’t know if officers tried to find him after that. Olango arrived as a refugee in 1991 and was ordered deported in 2002 after being convicted on drug charges. He was released under a US Supreme Court ruling barring detention of foreign nationals...

    In a move that would never have occurred when they created her in the 1940s, DC Comics has declared that their most acclaimed heroine is attracted to both men and women. That's right, ladies and gentlemen, Wonder Woman is officially bisexual. During a candid interview with Comicosity, Wonder Woman comic writer Greg Rucka gave the world confirmation, saying that there is no real concept of gay on the fictional island of Themyscira. [Y]es, [Wonder Woman is queer]. I think it’s more complicated though. This is inherently the problem with Diana: we’ve had a long history of people — for a...

    Kathy Shelton was just 12 years old when a 41-year-old drifter raped her on the side of a desolate Arkansas road in 1975. In 1975, Clinton served as the defense lawyer for Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year-old factory worker accused of raping Shelton after luring her to his car. Taylor pleaded down to 'unlawful fondling of a minor' and served less than a year in prison after Clinton was able to block the admission of forensic evidence that linked her client to the crime. Shelton said Clinton accused her during the case of 'seeking out older men', and demanded that...

    Legislation signed this month by Gov.

The gas, which heats the atmosphere 20 times faster than carbon dioxide, comes from the butts and burps of bovines. One U.N. report blames livestock, which has largely escaped climate regulation, for 14.5 percent of the planet’s heat-trapping gases, as much as planes, trains and automobiles combined.

    As was expected, Monday night’s presidential debate moderator, Lester Holt couldn’t exactly hide his bias towards Hillary Clinton…. The Daily Caller points out, “Holt interrupted Trump a whopping 41 times, either to “fact-check” the Republican nominee, or to ask a follow-up question.

Rahami who came to the U.S. with his family as part of an Afghan asylum program, was arrested in 2014...

Perfecto Padilla, 52, a dedicated church elder, was resting in a hammock just outside his house in Sultan Kudarat, Philippines, when the gunmen on board motorbikes came and peppered him with bullets on Sept. 11, a Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) report says. Naomi saw what happened, and she immediately ran to her father, crying and screaming for help....
