    A Houston-area man is now suspected of killing three people and seriously injuring four others in a series of brutal assaults in Los Angeles and Santa Monica that caused widespread panic in the region’s sprawling homeless community, authorities said Tuesday. Investigators believe Ramon Escobar, 47, savagely beat three homeless men with a baseball bat while they slept on the street in downtown Los Angeles on Sept. 16, Capt. Billy Hayes of the LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division said at a downtown news conference. Two of those men have since died, and a third remains in critical condition. Four days later, police said,...

    Facebook has decided to censor evidence that CNN producer Scott Bronstein is cold-calling Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s former classmates in a bid to dig up dirt on the President Trump pick. Mark Zuckerberg’s platform has also decided to ban the user who posted the audio. “This is what happens when you post an actual recording of a CNN producer’s dirty journalism on Facebook. #banned So wrong!,” tweeted Amy Dryden, who posted the Bronstein clip on Facebook after a friend sent it to her. Dryden also made clear that the number Bronstein provided on the audiotape was not Bronstein’s personal...

    "President Donald Trump’s second address to the United Nations reiterated the same point he made last year: His America is a sovereign one, and every nation is on its own. “America is governed by Americans,” he said to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday in one his highest-profile speeches of the year. “We reject the ideology of globalism and accept the doctrine of patriotism.” He also used the opportunity to breeze through America’s national security concerns, such as nuclear talks with North Korea, tensions with Iran, and his trade war with China. But the speech amounted to little more than...

    For the first time in our nation's history, voters in 24 counties in W. Virginia will be able to vote using their mobile phones. While some are hailing the decision because it will make voting easier for members of the military deployed overseas, experts are warning of possible security breaches. "After researching previously available options, the Secretary’s team identified that most electronic ballot delivery technology required access to a desktop computer, printer and scanner, all of which present significant barriers to overseas voters, especially those in combat zones or engaged in covert operations," the W. Virginia Secretary of State's office...

    Supporters of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s vague and unsubstantiated charges, based on hazy memories, against SCOTUS pick Brett Kavanaugh have their mantras. One of them is “Women don’t lie!” We should answer: “Ever heard of Asia Argento? How about Tawana Brawley? Those white Southern women who sent innocent black men to the gallows under Jim Crow?” The reply, of course, will be … crickets...

    The 2018 United Nations (U.N.) General Assembly has to make do without an appearance by Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping, but there is a heavy Chinese presence at the event, which Beijing – and critics of the Trump administration’s foreign policy – see as a golden opportunity for China to assume the mantle of globalist champion and displace the United States as the world’s most influential nation.

    Hundreds of teens identified as Somalis rampaged through the Valley Fair Amusement Park in Shakopee, Minnesota. It was the first night of the ValleyScare activities. Police said, “The number of individuals running throughout the park increased substantially and was difficult to control.” They had to shut the park down early as the numbers of teens in the mob grew to hundreds. People described them fighting, terrorizing children, pushing children, knocking over Halloween props. One victim said the media doesn’t want this out because three Muslims are running for office.

  • Rod Rosenstein’s departure was imminent. Now he is likely to survive until after the midterms

    09/25/2018 7:07:11 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 62 replies
    Rod J. Rosenstein’s departure seemed so certain this week that his boss’s chief of staff told colleagues that he had been tapped by the White House to take over as second-in-command of the Justice Department, while another official would supervise the special counsel probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, people familiar with the matter said. But by Monday afternoon, the succession plan had been scrapped. Rosenstein, who told the White House he was willing to quit if President Trump wouldn’t disparage him, would remain the deputy attorney general in advance of a high-stakes meeting on Thursday to discuss...

Now Republicans don’t even need to hear her before they move ahead with a vote.“It’s clear to me that Republicans don’t want this to be a fair process.”###

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) — Organizers of a movement to repeal SB 1, California's gas tax hike that funds road repairs, announced Tuesday they have a plan to fix the state's roads and improve infrastructure without a tax hike. Opponents of the gas tax increase have said the state should pay for its road repair projects from the existing state budget. Meanwhile, those against getting rid of the gas tax said this is all a distraction. Proposition 6, which will be on the Nov. 6 ballot, would repeal the state's 12 cent per gallon gas tax increase. “It’s time that we...
  • PHONE AUDIO: CNN Producer Cold-Calling Brett Kavanaugh’s Yale Classmates

    CNN producer Scott Bronstein is caught on tape calling around to Brett Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates from the class of ’87. “Sender’s husband is a Yale grad and CNN is proactively contacting ‘87 Yale graduates who were in Pierson Residential College to try to dig up dirt on Kavanaugh,” Amy Dryden wrote on Facebook. The media has now put forward two sexual impropriety accusers: Palo Alto-based left-wing activist professor Christine Blasey Ford, and former George Soros Open Society Foundations senior fellow Deborah Ramirez, also a professor. But so far no concrete evidence has implicated Kavanaugh in any wrongdoing.
