    A decomposing body was found inside the entrance column of a supermarket in Lancaster on Saturday, and investigators believe it may be a chase suspect who escaped authorities earlier this week. ... LASD Lt. John Corina said the manager of the store smelled a strong odor from the column in front of the business. He assumed it was a sewage leak and called out a plumber to check it out. The plumber and store's handyman then broke off some of the brick from the column and found a leg and shoe inside, Corina said. … Corina said the unidentified suspect...

    The first clear pictures of Iran’s nuclear site near Isfahan have been published and analyzed following an explosion at or near the site on Nov. 28, and they provide another piece of the puzzle. But what happened there remains a mystery. -excerpt- ISIS analysts who looked at the images from Isfahan said there had been a dramatic change in the landscape around a tunnel leading down to a storage facility on the periphery of the uranium conversion site. Several structures above that storage facility, which had been there for 15 years and stood intact as recently as August, are gone....

    Sen. Orrin Hatch wants the world to know he’s very much alive after a Google search results snafu had declared the 84-year-old Utah Republican dearly departed. On Monday night, Hatch’s office pointed out the news of the senator’s “death” via the search engine. Pulling from a faulty Wikipedia entry, Google had declared that Hatch passed away last September. Matt Whitlock, Hatch's spokesman, tells ITK, “When Sen. Hatch first heard of his passing he was quite alarmed. Having advanced four major bills last night he was surprised to hear that he may have been dead the whole time.” Hatch’s office tweeted...

    July 17 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he misspoke during a news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin when he said he didn't "see any reason why" Russia would interfere in the 2016 U.S. election. Speaking to reporters from the White House, Trump said he was surprised at the reaction he received over his public remarks with Putin on Monday. "I have to say, I came back and I said ... 'what's the big deal?'" he said. Trump said he reviewed the transcript and clips from the news conference and said he made a mistake when he...

    A Polish charity has been hit with a massive phone bill after a GPS tracker it had put on a stork was stolen. In April 2017, Polish environmental group EkoLogiczna placed a GPS tracker on the back of Kajtek, a white stork, to collect data about the bird’s winter migration route as well as its feeding habits. In the year that followed, Kajtek travelled some 6,000 kilometres but was last recorded on 26 April in the Blue Nile Valley in eastern Sudan.In a Facebook post, the group explains that “for unknown reasons” Kajtek stayed in the area for over two...
  • Backfire: Trump soars 5 points in IBD/TIPP poll after Democrats go rabid

    Are Democrats the biggest idiots alive? A new poll from IBD/TIPP (the most reliable, by the way) shows that President Trump has soared five fat points in the wake of Democrats' ragefest against him over illegal immigration. Our president is looking more presidential to the voters, and the left seems to be eating itself. Seriously, many warnings have gone out that Democrats staking their future on open borders, hollering about 'the children' isn't working at all. As Trump soars, it turns out they're digging their own grave. Investor's Business Daily's John Merline writes: Increasingly bitter and aggressive attacks on President...

    President Donald Trump said Wednesday that New York Rep. Joe Crowley "got his a– kicked" in his Democratic primary Tuesday by a 28-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter "who had a lot of energy." "Last night, we had a great evening," Trump told a rally in Fargo, North Dakota, for Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer, who is facing Democratic incumbent Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in November. "We watched that television — and we were winning left and right," Trump said. "They didn't know what the hell happened.

    Randy Wadkins, the Democratic nominee for Mississippi’s first congressional district, is apparently having a hard time remembering exactly what seat he is running for. In a tracking video captured by America Rising PAC, Wadkins tries and fails twice to tell the camera who he is and whether he is running for Senate or the House of Representatives. “Hey, my name is Randy Wadkins, I am the Democratic nominee for the United States Senate,” he begins before realizing he is not actually running for Senate. “Er, sorry let’s back up.”

    Thursday evening, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) compared U.S. Customs and Border Protection confiscating items from detained immigrants crossing the border to images from Auschwitz. The pictures in the story Speier cited were from an artist’s exhibit using items confiscated from 2007 to 2014, mostly under the Obama administration. “CBP takes away rosaries, shoes, wallets and toothbrushes from detained immigrants; what they call “non-essential” personal property,” Speier tweeted. “The images in these photos shockingly resemble the shoes collected from Auschwitz – and it’s revolting and chilling.”

    A man was killed early Thursday morning in east Oklahoma City after being electrocuted while attempting to steal copper wire from a light pole, according to KWTV. The spike in copper prices in recent years has driven well known black market for the metal. The National Insurance Crime Bureau reported that over a three year period there were 28,000 claims for theft of industrial metals -- 98% of which was copper. The trend has been attributed to copper's ease of access, as it is often unguarded in industrial air conditioning units, open construction sites, abandoned properties and public power utilities....

    The Capitol Police turned over a trove of evidence in the alleged Imran Awan House cyberbreach and theft case to the defense attorneys when they were supposed to deliver it to prosecutors instead, according to court documents and a source. And hours after The Daily Caller News Foundation asked prosecutors about the disclosure, Awan’s lawyer said he had learned of the forthcoming story from a source on Capitol Hill. TheDCNF had not told anyone other than prosecutors about it. “The cop came to [Awan’s defense attorney] Chris Gowen’s office with a stack of papers … Then he came back and...

  • Avenatti Accuses The Wrong Michael Cohens Of Making ‘Fraudulent’ Payments

    Michael Avenatti, porn star Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, released a seven-page dossier on Tuesday containing a list of payments purportedly made to Michael Cohen, the lawyer for President Donald Trump. But there is one problem with the document: two of the allegedly “fraudulent” payments were made to men named Michael Cohen who have no affiliation with Trump. Avenatti’s report includes a section listing “possible fraudulent and illegal financial transactions” involving Trump’s lawyer. One of the payments is a $4,250 wire transfer from a Malaysian company called Actuarial Partners to a bank in Toronto. The other is a $980 transfer from a...

    The promised autonomous driving revolution can't come soon enough for some people—like the subject of today's entry in the Florida Man chronicles, a distracted driver who lost control of his 2016 Chevrolet Camaro convertible while adjusting the radio, launched off the side of a highway bridge, and plunged fifty feet to the street below. According to the Tampa Bay Times, the unofficial Dukes of Hazzard impression began when 61-year-old Thomas Highhouse took his eyes off the road to mess with the stereo in his 'Maro while driving down Interstate 275 in St. Petersburg.
