    Just heard this on the radio. A man nonchalantly removes Ted Cruz signs while being filmed by the owner, who also happens to be a gun owner. The perp then comes toward the owner with a voice like that of Gollum, from Lord of the Rings.

    (CNN) — Former New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner is set to be released from prison about three months earlier than initially scheduled, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website. In May 2017, Weiner pleaded guilty to one charge of transferring obscene material to a minor in federal court in Manhattan. The charges stem from communications that the former congressman had with a 15-year-old girl on social media sites between January and March 2016. "This crime was my rock bottom," Weiner said in court. "I have no excuse. ... I victimized a young person who deserved better." Weiner was...

    DEVILS LAKE, N.D. — A police officer was reportedly refused service because of his uniform. That is according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, where over the weekend a trooper went to the KFC/Taco Bell on Highway 2 in Devils Lake on his lunch break. He claims the employee refused to take the order, telling the trooper he was just there to harass them because they arrested them in the past. Highway Patrol says the trooper just transferred to the Devils Lake region from another part of the state. It's still unclear if the trooper arrested the employee in the...

    It’s been more than four years since over $2 million was raised through crowdfunding to make a Kermit Gosnell movie, and today, that film finally hits theaters. But you might not know that. We searched high and low for reviews of Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer among the usual suspects, but reviews by mainstream critics for the Gosnell movie are scarce. Nearly non-existent, actually.

    It must be exhausting. The idea that everyone is out to get you is classically thought of as extreme paranoia. However, some people probably do have some grounds to be concerned about their safety. After all, there are those in the world who receive death threats by the dozens. But even one death threat is enough to make anyone concerned. It doesn’t help when you go out of your way to piss people off, either. Perhaps that’s why anti-gun activist and Parkland kid Emma Gonzalez decided to admit that she’s terrified someone with a gun sticker on their car will...

    A young colored Republican, while making an address at Forty-fourth street and Second avenue last night, came near being roughly handled by a number of men. There were some policemen watching those listening to the speaker at the time, and they quickly suppressed the disturbance by severely shaking two or three who were in a riotous mood. A person at the meeting said sticks, stones, garbage and eggs were thrown at the person on the cart and at people in the gathering, but the police of the Fifty-first st. station denied that any sticks or stones were hurled at anyone...

    The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee blasted the White House Thursday for picking nominees for the West Coast’s appeals court without consulting her, and saying one of the three doesn’t have any judicial experience. President Trump named a new slate of court picks Wednesday, including three judges to sit on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. But Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California objected, saying she had tried to consult with the White House but was rebuffed. She said she would withhold her blue slip, in a signal that she doesn’t acquiesce to the picks. Blue slips are a...

    Joel Kaplan, the head of global policy for Facebook, has faced a wave of internal criticism at the company for appearing at a Senate hearing in support of his friend, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Facebook convened a town hall meeting on Friday after hundreds of staffers excoriated Kaplan for appearing at last week’s hearing. According to The Wall Street Journal, some staffers were appalled that a top executive should appear partisan, while others were infuriated because the hearing considered allegations that Kavanaugh had committed sexual assault decades ago. Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder and CEO, convened the town hall...

    Christine Ford has not turned over her therapist’s notes to the Senate regarding her suppressed memories about Judge Kavanaugh abusing her decades earlier. This may be because if the memories were revealed through hypnosis they would be “absolutely inadmissible” in the court of law in many states, including New York and Maryland. There were also accusations that Christine Ford was under a hypnotic trance during her testimony.
