     was the blue suitcase that led police to the pit bull’s killer. On Wednesday, more than a month after Ollie was found in a suitcase with more than 30 stab wounds, Hollywood police announced the arrest of Brendan Evans, 31. Evans, who has a rap sheet including an arrest in 2012 on domestic battery charges, now faces a charge of aggravated animal cruelty. Police say the DNA on the suitcase linked back to Evans, who is on probation for a bank robbery in Hernando County in central Florida. Hollywood police had arrested him Nov. 15 after DNA linked him to...

    The Department of Homeland Security announced Monday it would cancel a temporary residence program that's allowed nearly 59,000 Haitians to live and work in the United States. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke gave Haitians living with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) until July 22, 2019 to either leave the country or apply for a different legal immigration category. Under TPS, citizens of designated countries that have undergone a major natural or man-made disaster are allowed to remain in the United States legally until conditions in their home nations recover.
  • Hillary Clinton’s split personality: Pious Christian, abortion flagbearer. Can she be both?

    Mercator ^ | September 14, 2017 | Carolyn Moynihan, Deputy Editor
    Over the past week I have encountered to two very different Hillary Clintons. One is a pious Christian who reads her Bible daily, prays and seeks guidance from trusted pastors. One of the latter, Rev Bill Shillady, put together a book, Strong for a Moment Like This, collecting devotionals that he and other divines sent her each morning during her election run. She wrote the foreword for it. (Unfortunately the book, published last week, has been pulled from sale on account of Shillady’s plagiarism.) This Hillary would like to be a preacher in her Methodist church. Going by her recent...

    23 August 2017 – The United Nations body monitoring implementation of the global convention on prohibiting racial discrimination has called on high-level politicians and public officials of the United States to unequivocally and unconditionally reject and condemn racist hate speech and crimes in Charlottesville and throughout the country. “We are alarmed by the racist demonstrations, with overtly racist slogans, chants and salutes by white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan, promoting white supremacy and inciting racial discrimination and hatred,” said Anastasia Crickley, Chairperson of UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD), in a news release.

    The U.S. election season has reached a whole new level of absurdity now that Donald Trump voodoo dolls are selling like hotcakes in Seattle. Voodoo dolls are effigies into which pins are inserted so that the person made into its likeness will suffer pain. It is commonly used in the occult. However, Sally Noedell, a Bainbridge Island woman, thought of making these dolls to earn some extra cash. "At first, I made a whole bunch of political figures, but Trump became the front-running doll really fast," Noedell told the Kitsap Sun. "This is the one most people most want to...

    Hillary Clinton will attend a fundraiser in New York on Tuesday hosted by Facebook millionaire and vertically integrated media company caretaker Chris Hughes, who recently described himself in a Vanity Fair profile as “the Antichrist, or something pretty close to it.” Hughes is best known for being Mark Zuckerberg’s roommate at Harvard and for pioneering the “poke” button feature on the popular social media website Facebook. His husband, Brown graduate Sean Eldridge, was the worst candidate of the 2014 election cycle. Eldridge ran for Congress in New York’s 19th Congressional district after Hughes bought him a mansion there. He ended...

    Worshippers dressed in white, sacrificed goats and cows, smeared themselves with blood and then danced in a sacred pool in an effort to bring forth loa - spirits that help to run the universe and can grant blessings.  Followers of voodoo, the unofficial religion of the Caribbean island nation, gathered in the holy city of Souvenance over the weekend to take part in one of its largest annual celebrations. Most voodoo festivals coincide with Christian celebrations because former slaves were banned from practicing the religion; holding their celebrations on the same day as their Catholic masters was a good way of...

    A man who choked to death at a Voodoo Doughnuts shop in Denver was reportedly trying to wolf down a giant doughnut during a food-eating challenge. Travis Malouff, 42, died Sunday while attempting to down a half-pound glazed doughnut. The cause of death was "asphyxia, due to obstruction of the airway," the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner said Monday morning. Malouff was taking the shop's "Tex-Ass Challenge," which requires participants to consume the colossal doughnut — the equivalent of six regular doughnuts — within an 80-second time limit.

Local leaders and close relatives of Mr. Obama, whose father was born in Kenya and who is seen as a source of immense national pride, met to place a curse on Malik Obama. Threats of violence have been made against the family apostate. “We have...

As she blends archetypal drama and epic soap opera, Marsha reveals and befriends her personal shadow. I interviewed Marsha about her book and what it was like become so deeply involved with...

    A week ago most people had never come across rapper Azealia Banks. She flew onto everyone’s radar on Saturday with just one tweet. It was as follows- And time to put death spells on cops who kill innocent civilians and think they can get away with it….. OKURRRRRR?!Immediately people began to respond on twitter with calls to the ancient magicks and the ancestors. People called Azealia a racist, and some Wiccans even chimed in with the three fold law. If there were any Pagans out there that thought they didn’t have “a nickel in this quarter,” they must admit they...

She picks fights with people like Iggy Azalea, Eminem, Lady Gaga, and then a bunch of other people you’ve never heard of because of #1 above.

    If you think you’ve seen all the crazy antics the pro-abortion side in Texas has to offer as it opposes a pro-life bill to ban late-term abortions, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!” They’ve found a new way to protest the bill by making voodoo dolls and sending the proceeds from the sale of the dolls to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business. The Blaze has more on what’s going on in the Lone Star State as Perry signs the bill into law. Michelle Sinched, a noted corset maker, has found a new way to protest the bill: She’s making...

    There is little suspense left in our presidential horse race, even in most of the so-called swing states, says astrophysicist and statistician Wes Colley. The way he measures the poll data and his deceptively simple median method, which have correctly predicted the last two presidential elections, show President Obama has locked up Ohio and Virginia and cemented a small, but stable lead in Florida. Bottom line: Obama is well on his way to re-election. "I think the operative word is disaster if you're a Republican," said Colley on Monday. "I think the operative word is confidence if you're a Democrat."...

    On Jan. 12, for the second anniversary of the devastating earthquake, thousands of people flocked to the Shalom Church in Port au Prince, Haiti. The "church" is just a plywood stage under a patchwork of tattered tarps. The crowd was so large that it spilled down a muddy hill toward a tent camp for earthquake victims. Most of the singing, swaying congregation were so far away they couldn't even see the podium. The evangelical mission now claims to have more than 50,000 members and one of the most popular radio stations in Haiti. This church is a product of the...
