Man Gets 6 Months In Prison After Cashing Dead Mom’s Social Security Checks… For 37 Years – Zero Hedge

A Detroit man has been sentenced to six months in prison (plus three years on probation) for cashing 37 years’ worth of his dead mother’s social security checks – accruing more than $280,000 in benefits to which he wasn’t entitled.

Though his neighbor, Reginald Carpenter, said he tried to do the right thing by notifying the authorities (“but the checks just kept coming”), 76-year-old Walter Terrell had cashed his mother’s checks, despite the fact that she had been dead since 1981.

The scheme was uncovered after Medicare tried to contact his mother to ask why her benefits hadn’t been used. Though Terrell tried to keep them at bay by telling them that his mother was away or on vacation when they called or tried to check on her, he was eventually found out, according to Fox 10.

Despite Terrell’s neighbors’ insistence that he tried to do the right thing, U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider didn’t see it that way…

Christian Journalist Accused By Police In UK Of “Misgendering” A Woman’s “Transgender” Child – Right Scoop

A Catholic journalist in the UK named Caroline Farrow is being accused by police of a crime after she apparently ‘misgendered’ a woman’s transgender ‘daughter’ back in September of last year.

It all began after she finished an interview on Good Morning Britain with Piers Morgan. Also in the interview was a woman named Susie Green, whose son had a sex change operation. After she finished the interview she apparently tweeted about it and in the process ‘misgendered’ the son’s transgendered gender.

Now police want to do an interview “under caution” with her over the incident, according to her Twitter feed:

Had a message from Guildford police tonight about my tweets following an appearance on @GMB with Susie Green and Piers Morgan. Susie Green has reported me for misgendering her daughter…

‘American Taliban’ John Walker Lindh To Be Released From Prison In May; Still Hasn’t Denounced Islamism – Fox News
.

.
John Walker Lindh, a former American Taliban militant convicted in 2002 for supporting the terrorist organization, is due to be freed in May. The former Islamist fighter was arrested in 2001, just months after the Sept. 11 attacks and the start of the war in Afghanistan. Then just 20 years old, he was among a group of Taliban fighters who were captured by U.S. forces.

Within a year, Walker Lindh was convicted of supporting the Taliban and sentenced to 20 years in prison – even as some hardliners urged authorities to consider treason charges that could have resulted in the death penalty.

Walker Lindh’s release later this year is likely to be met with headaches for security services across the globe…

President Trump Visits The Last Tank Plant In America, Which He Helped Save – Forbes

President Trump’s visit this week to the Army’s sole surviving tank plant in Lima, Ohio is the first such presidential visit there since George W. Bush stopped by in 2003. President Obama never visited, and the depressed level of military spending during his presidency nearly shut the place down.

That is not an exaggeration. Wrongly assuming that Russia had ceased to be a threat to global security, the Obama administration cut the number of Army armored brigades to a record low of nine.

Production of upgraded Abrams tanks at the Lima site fell to a single tank per month, and the Army seriously considered mothballing its only facility capable of producing the nation’s premier land warfare weapon.

As if all that were not enough, the Obama administration also killed a badly needed Marine amphibious landing vehicle that would have been built at Lima. The tank plant had been renamed the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center…

Kraft pleaded not guilty to the two misdemeanor charges on Feb. 28. He has maintained his innocence since being charged in Jupiter, Fla., on Feb. 22.

“We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity,” a spokesperson for Kraft said the same day. “Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting any further.”…

Twelve French Churches Attacked, Vandalized In One Week – Breitbart

A dozen Catholic churches have been desecrated across France over the period of one week in an egregious case of anti-Christian vandalism. The recent spate of church profanations has puzzled both police and ecclesiastical leaders, who have mostly remained silent as the violations have spread up and down France.

Last Sunday, marauders set fire to the church of Saint-Sulpice – one of Paris’ largest and most important churches – shortly after the twelve-o’clock Mass.

Police have concluded that the fire was the result of arson and are now looking for possible suspects. The restoration of the church from the damage caused by the fire will reportedly cost several hundred million euros.

In Nimes (department of the Gard), near the border with Spain, the church of Notre-Dame des Enfants was desecrated in a particularly odious way, with vandals painting a cross with human excrement, looting the main altar and the tabernacle, and stealing the consecrated hosts, which were discovered later among piles of garbage…

Pentagon Finds $12.8 Billion For Trump’s Border Wall – Washington Examiner
.

.
The Defense Department has identified $12.8 billion in possible funding that it could use to fulfill President Trump’s call for a border wall. Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., released the 20-page spreadsheet on Twitter Monday night.

Trump last month declared a national emergency at the border, and said he wants to use $3.6 billion for border wall projects. The Pentagon’s list said it has found possible funding sources that are “in excess of the amount needed.”

But it’s not clear which projects the Defense Department will draw from. Some states that have been allocated big chunks of money that haven’t been spent could see a hit. California, for example, was identified as having more than $700 million in unused Army and Navy military construction that could be used…

Trump predicted that they would “have a fantastic working relationship” and noted that they “have many views that are similar.”

Trump also thanked Bolsonaro and the people of Brazil for providing aid to those suffering under the socialist dictatorship in Venezuela…

Islamists Burn Houses, Murder Nine More Christians In Nigeria – Breitbart

Muslim Fulani militants killed nine more Christians in Nigeria’s Middle Belt over the weekend, the latest strike in a string of lethal, religiously motivated attacks.

The governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, confirmed that the assault in the Sanga local government area had claimed at least nine lives, adding to the death toll of 120 Christians massacred in central Nigeria since February.

“The security agencies have so far recovered nine corpses, including children,” El-Rufai said. “The attackers also burnt several houses in the village. The government condemns this attack on the lives and security of citizens and appeals to our communities to resist those who do not want peace.”

A week ago, the Fulani jihadists, who have become a greater threat to Nigerian Christians than the Islamist terror group Boko Haram, raided the villages of Inkirimi, Dogonnoma, and Ungwan Gora in the Kajuru Local Government Area, destroying 143 homes, killing 52 people, and wounding dozens more…

More New Yorkers View Ocasio-Cortez As Villain Rather Than Hero After Sabotaging Amazon Deal – Daily Wire

A new poll shows that after the cancellation of the deal that would have brought Amazon to Queens, New York, along with an estimated 25,000 jobs, a cancellation which Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) championed, more than three times as many respondents viewed her as a villain rather than a hero.

The findings of the Siena College poll of New Yorkers taken between March 10-14 prompted Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg to say, “Only 12 percent call her hero, while 38 percent label her a villain.”

Additionally, Ocasio-Cortez may be popular with New York Democrats, but by and large, the rest of the electorate in New York state can’t stomach her. The poll found that 31% of respondents overall had a favorable impression of Ocasio-Cortez; 44% viewed her unfavorably. Greenberg noted:

Ocasio-Cortez, with a negative 31-44 percent favorability rating, is as well known to statewide voters after three months in office as Gillibrand is after ten years as senator…

Alleged Terrorist Cartel Declares War In Mexican Coastal State – Breitbart

Veracruz, Veracruz – Fierce gun battles, torched trucks, blockaded highways, mass closure of businesses, and endless violence are the initial results of a weekend of skirmishes triggered by cartel gunmen in this coastal state.

The conflict was previously announced by Jalisco Cartel Nueva Generaciَn (CJNG) with banners complaining of government corruption and promises of war.

The violence began on Friday when CJNG gunmen clashed with the state police, Fuerza Civil. According to federal law enforcement sources, the hitmen rode in a convoy of more than 20 trucks.

Shortly after, the cartel gunmen burned five trailers, stole buses, and began shooting at a hospital as part of their invasion of Veracruz. State authorities tried to repel the attacks and carried out a series of operations to capture the gunmen…

Venezuelan leader Nicolلs Maduro has asked his entire Cabinet to file their resignations as he struggles to maintain control of the country amid a two-month long political crisis.

The move comes as Maduro is fighting for his political life against Juan Guaidَ, the 37-year-old head of congress and the man who Washington and more than 50 other nations recognize as Venezuela’s sole president.

North Carolina County Passes Resolution Declaring That They Are Now A ‘Gun Sanctuary County’ – Gateway Pundit

Officials in Cherokee County, North Carolina, have passed a resolution declaring that they are now a “Gun Sanctuary County.”

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners’ resolution is similar to a sanctuary city declaration – but asserts that they will not accept federal or state funds to be used to “infringe on the right by the people to keep and bear arms as described.”

In a Facebook post earlier this month, Cherokee County Commissioner C.B. McKinnon wrote that “any regulation of the right to keep and bear arms or affiliated firearm rights that violates the Second, Ninth, Tenth, or Fourteenth amendments to the U.S. Constitution, that violates Article I, Sections 5, 16, and 30 of the North Carolina Constitution, or that violates numerous related U.S. Supreme Court Decisions including those listed above shall be regarded by the People of, on, or in Cherokee County to be unconstitutional, a transgression of the Supreme Law of the Land and its spirit of individual sovereignty, and, therefore by necessity, unenforceable and invalid from the outset.”…
