    DURHAM, N.C. - A North Carolina man has been arrested after police say he kidnapped a family at gunpoint and forced them to take him shopping. Durham police say on Tuesday 29-year-old Rollin Anthony Owens Jr. knocked on the door of a house in the West End neighborhood asking for money. A resident gave Rollins money, but police say he then used a gun to force the residents - a man, woman and two children - out of the house and into their vehicle. Owens allegedly made the driver take him to a convenience store, then a Target, where police...

    This Father’s Day, he’s still the most in-demand dad in town. A year after The Post revealed that CUNY math professor Ari Nagel had fathered 23 kids — some conceived the old-fashioned way, others involving sperm handoffs at public spots such as the Atlantic Center Target in Downtown Brooklyn — he’s back. Nagel, 41, has donated his supersperm to even more women, resulting in four kids born since last Father’s Day. And eight other ladies, from Florida to Maryland to The Bronx, are currently pregnant because of him. SEE ALSO In fact, wannabe mommies from all over the globe have...
  • Russia Warns It Will Treat US-Led Coalition Jets In Syria As Targets

    The Russian Defense Ministry blasted the U.S.' shooting down of a Syrian regime fighter jet as a "massive violation of international law" and said it will begin treating U.S.-led coalition jets flying west of the Euphrates River in Syria as targets. The ministry's comments Monday came after a U.S. Navy fighter jet on Sunday shot down a Syrian fighter jet that had dropped bombs on Syrian rebel forces who are fighting ISIS in the country. It was the first time the U.S. has engaged in air-to-air combat in Syria and signaled an escalation of the conflict. The incident is also...

    The voice is that of a soft-spoken 28-year-old, but the message is vintage Osama bin Laden, giving orders to kill. When the audio recording began turning up on jihadist websites two weeks ago, it was as if the dead terrorist was channeling himself through his favorite son. “Prepare diligently to inflict crippling losses on those who have disbelieved,” Hamza bin Laden, scion of the Sept. 11, 2001, mastermind, says in a thin baritone that eerily echoes his father. “Follow in the footsteps of martyrdom-seekers before you.” The recording, first aired May 13, is one in a string of recent pronouncements...

    PALATINE, Ill. -- A northwest suburban man who tried to take cellphone video of a girl trying on clothes at a Target store in Palatine was captured himself when store cameras caught him running out. Just before 4 p.m. on March 26, police were called to the Target store at 679 E. Dundee Rd. in Palatine, where a juvenile girl reported the incident, according to Palatine police. She told police she was in the fitting room when she saw a cell phone being held under the door. When she screamed, the man ran out of the store.

    Target’s declining sales and tumbling stock price, which dropped from a high of $82.76 in April of 2016 to a low of about $54.78 in April of this year, has spurred its board of directors to slash CEO Brian Cornell’s salary by nearly a third to $11.3 million. “Cornell’s compensation was based on the performance of two financial metrics: incentive EBIT (earnings before income and taxes), which makes up 75 percent of Cornell’s stock component, and the rest on adjusted sales,” Reuters reported. “Target said it missed its 2016 incentive EBIT goal of $5.74 billion by $623 million and fell...

    As reported by Fox News and other outlets, many of the people on Target's ten-member executive team have changed over the last two years, some of them over the past few months. "Recently we've seen reports that Target's CEO, their chief financial officer, and chief operating officer have all had their salaries slashed by up to 40 percent," says Walker Wildmon of the American Family Association. U.S. News and World Report reported, in fact, that CEO Brian Cornell's already-generous salary was cut after a "bleak year" at the retail giant. AFA has been on a year-long effort to urge Target...

    Ya think? Oh yes, many people beat up on Target for this bit of nonsense. Ourselves included. They deserved it, and they couldn’t deny it was happening. But they tried to insist at the time that it didn’t affect their business. That seemed implausible at the time, and now even they aren’t trying to pretend any longer. You simply can’t announce a policy that is guaranteed to upset at least half your customer base, and then expect to suffer no conquences for it. So when Target brashly announced last summer that it would allow everyone to use the bathroom corrersponding...

    I don’t particularly care which bathroom you use, as long as you wash your hands when you’re done. I also don’t particularly care if your company suffers a huge backlash for bowing to political correctness. And I don’t go to Target stores much anymore, ever since a Meijer store opened up near me. So Target’s recent travails don’t really concern me. Tough luck. Being “woke” might make you feel better about yourself, but it can cost you. Literally. .. {..snip..}
  • The Target boycott cost more than anyone expected — and the CEO was blindsided

    The boycott cost the company millions in lost sales and added expenses. Shopper traffic and same-store sales started sliding for the first time in years after the blog post, and the company was forced to spend $20 million installing single-occupancy bathrooms in all its stores to give critics of the policy more privacy. Critics of the policy said it opened the door for sexual predators to victimize women and children inside the retailer's bathrooms, and more than 1.4 million people signed a pledge to stop shopping at Target unless it reversed the policy. Sales fell nearly 6% in the three...

    The good news for North Carolina is starting to sound like a broken record, but based on the latest business reports, HB 2 might have been the best thing that happened to the state! Tourism is thriving and the economy is expanding — which is exactly the opposite of what liberals predicted. In a great Washington Times piece today, Bradford Richardson and Valerie Richardson are quick to point out that whatever “boycott” the Left had unleashed on the Tar Heels wasn’t nearly as powerful as they thought it would be. Financial indicators released for 2016, they write, “show that the...

Put on by Trans-Ohio at Columbus Public Health, the gathering today was for people who are transgender or non-gender conforming. "Trying to see a connection between the community and these employers," says Melissa Alexander, the co-chair of Trans-Ohio. People chatted with job coaches. Later in the day, around 20 companies set up to talk to potential employees. "We are discriminated against," says Alexander, "that is the reason why our unemployment rate is...

    Target, stung by the migration of its customers elsewhere, pledged Tuesday to spruce up some “tired” stores and make other investments in its business after delivering weak quarterly results and an outlook far below what analysts were expecting. The retailer’s profit for the quarter that includes the holiday season fell 43 percent, with strong online sales failing to offset weaker business at its stores. Target’s stock tumbled more than 12 percent, and other retailers dipped as well. Target said it will spend $7 billion over the next three years to remodel more than 600 of its 1,800 stores, speed up...

    “Action is not a choice, it’s a necessity… every problem can be solved.” Last night, President Trump spoke to a joint session of congress about his strategic plan to “Make America Great Again.” The process will be difficult because making America great again, means making America accountable again. The president will have to fight on many fronts. Consider the following from our OpenTheBooks.com investigations during the past two-years: •Farm subsidies flow into urban areas, where there are no farms. •$14 billion in small business lending allocated for Main Street was detoured to Wall Street. •Sick veterans are waitlisted to see...
