    A man charged with murdering eight people on a New York City bike path invoked “Allah” and defended the Islamic State group in court Friday, reports said. Sayfullo Saipov, 30, raised his hand to speak out immediately after U.S. District Judge Vernon S. Broderick set an Oct. 7, 2019, date for the Uzbek immigrant's trial. He said he cared about "Allah" and the holy war being waged by the Islamic State group. "So the Islamic State is not fighting for land, like some say, or like some say, for oil. They have one purpose, and they're fighting to impose Sharia...

    TheDC’s Amber Athey and Justin Caruso regularly take to the streets of Washington, D.C., to ask the most important questions in America. This week, we showed people a number of photos taken of detention centers for migrant children. Clearly, President Trump is keeping these kids in such horrible conditions … just kidding, that was President Obama in 2014. That’s right, we showed people around D.C. photos from detention centers that were run in 2014 under President Obama. Some of the reactions may surprise you.
  • Hardline immigration bill fails in the House

    The Hill ^ | Juliegrace Brufke | Juliegrace Brufke
    The House on Thursday rejected a hardline immigration bill — introduced by Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) — after leadership postponed a second vote on a compromise measure written with centrists. The 193-231 vote came a day after President Trump signed an executive order ending the controversial practice of separating children from parents who cross the border illegally. No Democrats voted in favor of Goodlatte's bill. House leadership had expressed pessimism on the chances for either Goodlatte’s legislation or a second compromise bill written with centrists, both of which come as the growing crisis at the border dominated headlines. The...

    Gangbangers peddle drugs in plain sight, hustlers resell cheap booze on the street corner — 50 cents will get you a capful — and prostitutes lead johns to the boarded-up husk of what used to be a Taco Bell. This is Tompkinsville Park on Staten Island’s North Shore in 2018 and, to area residents and merchants caught in its heroin- and K2-infested vortex, this is a battlefield. “Every day you see muggings, prostitutes, people smoking crack and shooting up heroin,” said Xhafer Gjeshbitraj, 52, who owns a building across the street from the tiny, triangular park bounded by Bay Street...
  • Poll: 3:1 Public Support for Trump’s Push to End Catch-and-Release

    Democrats are converting their emotional protests against “family separation” into unpopular calls for the catch-and-release of many Central American migrants into ordinary Americans’ jobsites and schools. The pre-election, pro-migration push is a huge risk, according to a poll by The Economist and YouGov which shows 3:1 public opposition to the Democrats’s catch-and-release policy. That opposition to catch-and-release was reinforced by President Donald Trump’s June 20 Executive Order to keep families together in detention until their appeal is decided by a judge. Many Democrats are pushing their demand that migrants caught at the border be quickly released into Americans’ workplaces and...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said on Wednesday that some of the 239 migrant children that were separated from their families and sent to his city have bed bugs and lice. De Blasio said he just learned that the children were sent to Cayuga Centers in Harlem, which is contracted by the federal government to help undocumented minors. "How is it possible that none of us knew there were 239 kids right here in our own city?" de Blasio asked, according to a CNN report. "How is the federal government holding back that information from the people...

    This NY Times excerpt provided more insight on Schumer’s critical moment against Trump: “In an hourlong meeting on Capitol Hill with House Republicans, Mr. Trump declined to explicitly back either one, saying he would sign both bills. Republican leaders are trying to rally support for the compromise bill. “The president was very firm in explaining why it’s so important that he gets this bill to his desk so that we can solve some problems and secure our border,” said Representative Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the Republican whip. He added, “We want to secure our border; we want to reunite kids....

    A political action committee backing former state Sen. Michael Johnston of Denver for the Democratic nod for governor has received another $1 million dollars from Michael Bloomberg, bringing the wealthy former New York mayor’s total donations to the committee to $2 million. ...

    It is often said that Washington, DC is filled with a bunch of nerds dominated by psychopaths. Others say that politics is simply Hollywood for ugly people. These are usually said in a joking manner and often uttered after coming back from a young professional happy hour here in the swamp. Perhaps the most soulless congregation of folks ever assembled can be found at those kind of events. A report conducted by Ryan Murphy at Southern Methodist University found that Connecticut contained the most psychopaths per capita followed quickly by California. New Jersey and New York followed next. But our...

    Leading figures of both parties pressured President Trump on Sunday to halt his administration’s practice of separating children from their parents when apprehended at the border, as the issue further polarized the already divisive immigration debate in Washington. Republican lawmakers, the former first lady Laura Bush and a onetime adviser to Mr. Trump joined Democrats, including former President Bill Clinton, in condemning the family separations that have removed nearly 2,000 children from their parents in just six weeks. The administration pushed back, arguing that it was just enforcing the law — a false assertion that President Trump has made repeatedly.

    The U.S. government’s policy detaining migrant parents while sheltering their children elsewhere is reminiscent of Adolf Hitler’s slave-labor camps, according to a Tweet from former intelligence chief and NeverTrump activist Gen. Michael Hayden. Hayden, who ran the National Security Agency from 1999 to 2005, and was CIA director from 2006 to 2009, Tweeted an image of the entrance to the Birkenau slave-labor camp, with the comment “other governments have separated mothers and children.”

    An American Legion post in Park Slope has been ordered to remove a bench — with the US flag painted on it — from outside its veterans club. The city’s Department of Transportation issued a “notice of encroachment/order” last week to the American Legion Sixth Memorial Post No. 1833 on 5th Avenue near 6th Street regarding the patriotic bench built around the base of a tree outside of the establishment. The notice, obtained by The Post, says that the “unauthorized bench” is “encroaching on city sidewalk” and orders the legion to remove within 30 days or face a possible fine....
