    The alleged gunman in the Valentine's Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida wants to give any inheritance due him from his late mother's estate to the victims' families or an organization that will help the community heal, his attorneys said Wednesday. Nikolas Cruz, 19, appeared at a hearing in Broward County Circuit Court in Fort Lauderdale to determine whether he is truly indigent or if he stands to collect up to $800,000 from his late mother's estate and various other financial accounts in his name. It was previously determined that Cruz could not afford his own...

    A strident voice for the voiceless “It must be death penalty supporters’ goal to convince the American people – and their representatives – that they should no longer accept the judiciary as fit to decide capital punishment sentencing cases, or indeed fit to decide anything of importance. We must shield the law-abiding not only from lawless predators but from lawless judges and justices who protect them” So is the declared mission statement of Dr. Lester Jackson, author of the recently released effort Equal Justice for Victims: A Blueprint for the Rightful Restoration of Capital Punishment, a withering assault on those...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., March 30 (C-Fam) Many websites are shutting down or curtailing their sex trade just weeks after the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives passed similar anti-human trafficking bills that would allow victims to sue the websites on which they were bought and sold.“Illegal commercial sex advertising platforms and forums have been blowing up, and johns have been calling our office and messaging us left and right, indicating that Congress has taken a powerful first step,” Congressman Ann Wagner’s staff told an anti-trafficking coalition on Thursday. “FOSTA-SESTA is disrupting demand for sex trafficking and shaking up the illegal commercial...

    After being fired by Attorney General Sessions on March 16, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe claimed: “This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally.” The Washington Post quoted McCabe saying: “The big picture is a tale of what can happen when law enforcement is politicized, public servants are attacked, and people who are supposed to cherish and protect our institutions become instruments for damaging those institutions and people.” Though blaming Trump, in reality, McCabe is describing his...

    Pope Francis publicly expressed “pain and shame” on Tuesday over the rape and molestation of children by priests in Chile and later listened, prayed and cried at a private meeting with victims, Reuters reported. Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said the meeting took place in the Vatican embassy in Santiago. “No one else was present. Only the pope and the victims,” the spokesman said. “This was so they could speak of their suffering to Pope Francis, who listened to them and prayed and cried with them.” It was only the second time on his overseas trips that the pope has met...

    Pedophilia is acceptable if you are a leftist? Apparently if the left did not have double standards, they'd have no standards at all The same leftist culture that created rabid feminism is now condoning victim worship of all females who claim sexual harassment and assault—even before the facts are out. It’s apparent the left is confused, and really doesn’t stand for anything—except for their goal to completely destabilize and destroy traditional America. Power and Corruption Many years ago I remember being told by a veteran old-school police officer that there are no victims; we put ourselves in situations in which...

    This is something that fell on the backburner, but a bit interesting. A poll showed that a significant amount of white southerners feel they’re under attack. I can see how. I’m not saying it’s right or wrong, but the fact remains that Confederate statues, the flag, etc. are all cornerstones of southern culture. It’s part of American history as well. Not one of our best moments, but a part of it nonetheless. Here’s the breakdown of the survey (via The Hill): Nearly half of white American poll respondents living in the South feel like they’re under attack, a new Winthrop...

    On Thursday night's Sean Hannity segment, conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren and Democratic strategist Jessica Tarlov went head to head over a question that's come up again amid the nation's reckoning with sexual abuse: Was Hillary Clinton complicit in her husband's own alleged misdeeds? "I know that the liberals hate it when we still talk about Hillary, but I think it’s important that if we go all the way back to Bill and that we follow it through Hillary," Lahren said on the show. "She just ran for president on the whole women card, the whole female empowerment. Hillary is...

    The White House ^ | 11/07/17 | Office of the Press Secretary
    Today, the National Day for the Victims of Communism, marks 100 years since the Bolshevik Revolution took place in Russia. The Bolshevik Revolution gave rise to the Soviet Union and its dark decades of oppressive communism, a political philosophy incompatible with liberty, prosperity, and the dignity of human life. Over the past century, communist totalitarian regimes around the world have killed more than 100 million people and subjected countless more to exploitation, violence, and untold devastation. These movements, under the false pretense of liberation, systematically robbed innocent people of their God-given rights of free worship, freedom of association, and countless...

    Me, too. That phrase has floated around social media all week, a trend started in response to the recent sexual assault allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. The premise is simple, if not oversimplified: Shift the focus away from predators and onto the victims. Tens of thousands of women—and men—have shared their stories of rape, sexual assault, or harassment under the hashtag. For some, the only words that came were “Me, too.” I process through writing. This week, I have written something incredibly personal, for a trend no one—including myself—expected me to participate in. I believe I owe myself a...

    After waiting a week to address the sexual assault allegations against Democrat mega-donor Harvey Weinstein, Hillary Clinton decided to politicize the explosive allegations. How, you might wonder? Given that Hillary spoke highly of the man, took millions of dollars fron him, and was pictured with him on countless occasions, you’d think it would be hard for her to spin the controversy. But don’t underestimate how creative a woman who has blamed a total of ten million different causes on her presidential defeat (OK – I’m exaggerating, but not much), and still can’t figure out “what happened.” Rather than do anything...

    Radical liberals and others on the far-Left took to Twitter Monday morning to not only send their condolences to those affected by the massive shooting in Las Vegas, but also to use the event as a way to climb on their soapbox and politicize the incident. Among them was failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who wasted no time in using the tragedy to her political advantage, tweeting:

    Leftists staged a tiny protest at the Victims of Communism Memorial in Washington D.C. last weekend where they all flipped off the monument designed to remember the millions murdered by the totalitarian ideology. Most of the responses on Twitter to these pictures mocked the idea that there should be a memorial for the many innocent people who died as a result of communist policies and repression.
