U.S. Retail Sales Rebounded A Solid 0.6 Percent In March – Breitbart

U.S. consumers bounced back in March and bought more cars, furniture and appliances after three months of declining retail sales. The Commerce Department said retail sales rose 0.6 percent last month, the largest increase since November. Auto sales jumped 2 percent, the most in six months.

Sales at retailers slipped in the first two months of this year as consumers pulled back after heavy spending during the winter holidays. Last month’s figures suggest Americans are returning to more free-spending ways.

Easter holiday purchases also likely lifted spending. Economists predict that healthy consumer confidence, steady job gains and the impact of tax cuts will fuel solid spending growth in the months ahead.

Sales rose at grocery stores, restaurants and bars, and drug stores. They fell at home and garden stores, clothing shops and sporting goods stores. Online retail sales increased 0.8 percent in March and have risen nearly 10 percent compared with a year ago…

U.S. Tanks In Europe Get Invisible Futuristic Missile Shield To Counter Russian Threat – Zero Hedge

Back in March, we detailed how the United States Army M1 Abrams tank, an American third-generation main battle tank, was in the process of being upgraded with an invisible missile shield that will destroy all chemical energy anti-tank threats and other threats before reaching the vehicle. We even said, “that Washington is preparing their main battle tank for the next evolution of hybrid wars.”

Known as Trophy, this is the world’s first and only fully operational Active Protection System and Hostile Fire Detection System for armored vehicles. This cutting-edge technology will provide M1 Abrams tanks with 360-degree security from all threats, as advanced algorithms are continually detecting, locating, and neutralizing anti-tank threats on the battlefield.

We even noted that the Trophy system was tested thoroughly on select M1A2 tanks in Europe and the Middle East. With much of the testing classified, there were still several unanswered questions surrounding what region(s) of the world the upgrades would go…

The charred remains of 60-year-old David Buckel were found by passers-by in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.

Deep State Corruption Update: Robert Mueller Honored Convicted Human Trafficker With FBI Award – True Pundit

As FBI Director, Robert Mueller awarded BackPage.com CEO Carl Ferrer recognition from the Justice Department and FBI for working in an investigative capacity to assist the FBI.

Two Supreme Court Shortlisters Nominated To Federal Courts – Washington Free Beacon

President Donald Trump is seeking to elevate two state judges from his Supreme Court shortlist to federal courts.

Trump nominated Britt Grant, a justice on the Georgia Supreme Court, and Patrick Wyrick, an associate justice on the Oklahoma Supreme Court, to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and western Oklahoma district court, respectively. Wyrick and Grant have been named as potential nominees to the Supreme Court by the Trump administration.

The nominations pleased Carrie Severino, a conservative court watchdog at the Judicial Crisis Network and former clerk for Associate Justice Clarence Thomas. Severino said the appointments would bolster the credentials of the justices if Trump taps them to the Supreme Court. Grant is 40 and Wyrick is 37, making them particularly appealing candidates for lifetime appointments to the highest court.

Syria Strikes: Russian Official Likens President Trump To Hitler – WABI

A highly placed Russian politician is likening President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler after the launch of airstrikes against Syria, and says he regards the action as a move against Russia.

Alexander Sherin, deputy head of the State Duma’s defense committee, says Trump “can be called Adolf Hitler No. 2 of our time – because, you see, he even chose the time that Hitler attacked the Soviet Union.”

That’s according to state news agency RIA-Novosti. The Nazi forces’ opening attack against the USSR in 1941 was launched around 4 a.m. The British defense ministry says “initial indications” show that the airstrikes against Syria produced a “successful attack” on a Syrian military facility.

The U.K., U.S. and France launched the attacks near Damascus early Saturday. The U.K. ministry says in a statement that while the effectiveness of the strike is still being analyzed, “initial indications are that the precision of the Storm Shadow weapons and meticulous target planning have resulted in a successful attack.”…

This massive Chinese naval exercise was observed for the first time, with China watchers pointing out that such a forceful display of deterrence was highly unusual for the People’s Liberation Army Navy. Perhaps in light of recent events, it was merely a warning.

Li Jie, a Beijing-based naval specialist, said, “it was the first time the Liaoning had taken part in live-fire drills. This will test the Liaoning’s real combat strength as well as joint-operations skills between the aircraft carrier and warships from other fleets.”

“China wants to show the outside world its determination to defend the fruits of its economic reforms over the past 40 years,” Beijing-based military analyst Zhou Chenming said.“Like the US, China’s military might is one of the government’s political tools to protect the country’s national interests.”…

California May Elect A Republican Governor, Incredible As That Sounds – Newt Gingrich
.

John Cox is doing something remarkable for a Republican. A recent survey indicates he is now within striking distance of being elected governor of the infamously liberal state in November.

According to the Public Policy Institute of California, Cox (who I greatly respect and have worked with for years) has been gaining support since January and is now the second-place pick for governor among likely California primary voters. This puts him right behind the leading Democrat and represents a great potential for Cox to win the governorship seven months from now.

The poll result is important because California’s primary system for congressional and statewide elections is unusual…

Male Colorado Democrat Has Penchant for Ladies’ Bathroom – Washington Free Beacon

A Democratic state senator in Colorado, who is a man, “frequently” enters the women’s bathroom, contradicting his claim that he only accidentally used the ladies room once.

A recording between the state senate secretary and the Colorado State Patrol, obtained through a records request by the conservative nonprofit Compass Colorado, revealed Sen. Daniel Kagan’s visits made his female colleagues uncomfortable.

Last month, Sen. Beth Martinez Humenik filed a workplace sexual harassment complaint against Kagan for using the women’s bathroom “multiple times.”

“I confronted him in the bathroom itself and said, ‘What are you doing in here?'” Martinez Humenik told KUNC, a public radio station. “Then, as we were walking out, I said, ‘It’s not OK for you to be here. I don’t want to see you here again.'”

Two other female staffers had “similar experiences,” according to Martinez Humenik. Another legislator, Sen. Owen Hill, said he saw Kagan in the women’s bathroom when he was taking his two young daughters to the facilities last year…

Marines Thrilled With Sniper Upgrade; Rifle Promises ‘Certain Doom’ For Enemies – Washington Times

The sniper rifle that aided U.S. Marines during the Vietnam War will soon be replaced with a weapon better suited for modern conflicts.

The M40 system and its nearly 1,000-yard range is no longer the preferred option for the Marine Corps in a security environment where 1,300 yards are needed to accomplish missions. Military officials heard the complaint from enough war fighters that scout snipers will soon carry the Mk 13 Mod 7 along with its .300 Winchester Magnum rounds.

Train Carrying 10 Million Pounds Of Human Feces Stranded In Alabama Train Yard For Two Months – The Drive

Hopefully, if you’re reading this, you live far from the town of Parrish, Alabama. Because if you’re not, that means that you’re probably tired of smelling the 10 million pounds of human feces that have been stranded in a local rail yard for over two months.

Catholic Benefits Association Wins HHS Lawsuit, Finally Driving A Stake Through The Heart Of Obamacare’s Employer Contraception Mandate – Crux

A federal judge has ruled in favor of the Catholic Benefits Association and issued declaratory relief and a permanent injunction against a mandate requiring employers to provide coverage for contraception, even if they are opposed to such coverage on moral grounds.

U.S. District Court Judge David Russell’s ruling also eliminated $6.9 billion in fines that have accumulated against members of the association, based in Castle Rock.

“This is the tremendous win,” CEO Douglas G. Wilson said in a March 28 statement. “The first freedom in the Bill of Rights is the First Amendment right to freedom of religion. The court has rightly ruled that employers should not be forced to violate their beliefs and cover morally problematic elective and often low-cost choices that individuals may wish to make.”

New Mind-Reading Machine Can Translate Your Thoughts And Display Them As Text Instantly – Daily Mail

Scientists have developed an astonishing mind-reading machine which can translate what you are thinking and instantly display it as text. They claim that it has an accuracy rate of 90 per cent or more and say that it works by interpreting consonants and vowels in our brains.

The researchers believe that the machine could one day help patients who suffer from conditions that don’t allow them to speak or move. The machine registers and analyses the combination of vowels and consonants that we use when constructing a sentence in our brains.

It interprets these sentences based on neural signals and can translate them into text in real time. In fact, scientists claim that the machine can use words that it hasn’t even heard before.

Study leader David Moses told the Sun: ‘No published work has demonstrated real-time classification of sentences from neural signals. ‘Given the performance exhibited by [the machine] in this work and its capacity for expansion, we are confident in its ability to serve as a platform for the proposed speech prosthetic device.’…

The report also found that as of August 2017, there were records of 10 million people whose period to remain in the UK had expired in the previous two years, and that by the end of March 2017, the Home Office had made no effort to contact the some 500,000 non-visa visitors to ascertain if they were still in the country.

Out-Of-Control Chinese Space Station’s Fiery Crash To Earth Is Due On Easter Sunday – Daily Mail

Out-of-control Chinese space station, Tiangong-1, is predicted to reenter Earth’s atmosphere at 11:30am BST (6:33am ET) on Easter Sunday. The space craft is carrying highly toxic chemicals and could crash into a number of highly populated areas, researchers claim.

Areas that could be hit include New York, Barcelona, Beijing, Chicago, Istanbul, Rome and Toronto. When the station does eventually enter the atmosphere it could unleash a ‘series of fireballs’ that will be seen by observers.

Scientists still do not yet know where the satellite fragments are likely to land. The latest prediction comes from Aerospace engineering, who claims the time for reentry could be anywhere within 16 hours either side of this.

The European Space Agency (Esa) is also tracking the space stations gradual descent.

Reports Of Christianity’s Death In Europe Have Been Greatly Exaggerated – John D. Martin

Since the 2007 publication of Philip Jenkin’s “God’s Continent: Christianity, Islam and Europe’s Religious Crisis,” observers of religious trends in European culture have been keeping a close eye on developments that might validate his sanguine view that Europe could see a revival in Christian belief. Richard J. Neuhaus, in his review of it in First Things at the time, thought the view was “too roseate.”

That was then. In the ten years since Neuhaus taking his final leave of the stage of this world, there have been increasing signs of a real and sustained Christian revival in Europe, hardly reported and barely noticed in press across the pond. Taking a look at the landscape and starting in far west, there are signs of revival in Spain, as Filip Mazurczak noted.

On Saturday, thousands of left-leaning people descended on the streets of Washington, D.C. to demand gun control as they were surrounded by a heavy presence of “good guys with guns.” It was a truly ironic scene.

In a piece compiled by Twitchy, a presence of heavily-armed local law enforcement officials and members of the National Guard were on scene to protect those rallying against guns, claiming they make American less safe.

The #MarchForOurLives gun control rally is being heavily pushed by left-wing groups like Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety, which are bent on taking away the constitutional rights of law-abiding American citizens.

The event is also being used as an optical moment for a political movement, as The Hill reports that “MTV announced the effort on Twitter, saying the network is teaming up with the NAACP and celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Jimmy Fallon, Carmelo Anthony and Halsey to sponsor 17 busloads of youth from communities impacted by gun violence.”…

John Bolton To Purge Obama Regime Holdovers From National Security Apparatus – Foreign Policy

ncoming National Security Advisor John Bolton and people close to him are expected to launch a massive shake-up at the National Security Council, aiming to remove dozens of current White House officials, starting with holdovers from President Barack Obama’s administration, according to multiple sources.

Those targeted for removal include officials believed to have been disloyal to President Donald Trump, those who have leaked about the president to the media, his predecessor’s team, and those who came in under Obama.

“Bolton can and will clean house,” one former White House official said. Another source said, “He is going to remove almost all the political [appointees] McMaster brought in.”

A second former White House official offered a blunt assessment of former Obama officials currently detailed or appointed to the NSC: “Everyone who was there during Obama years should start packing their shit.”…

Ten Algerian Migrants Arrested In Spain For Sexually Abusing Underage Girls – Breitbart

Ten Algerian migrant men were arrested in eastern Spain this week after they were alleged to have sexually abused three underage girls by luring them to an apartment offering drugs and money.

The ten migrants were brought to court on charges of sexual abuse in the city of Alicante, where they are believed to have sexually molested and assaulted three girls aged 14, 15, and 17, Le Point reports.

The men are said to have met the young girls and offered them both drugs and money to come back with them to an apartment in the city. All three of the girls, according to the Spanish police, had run away from a boarding school for troubled young people shortly before they met the group of migrant men.

A police statement about the affair stated that one of the girls “was locked up for 24 hours, during which group members assaulted her and sexually abused her repeatedly.”…

The number of millionaire households in the U.S. jumped by more than 700,000 last year, thanks to surging stock prices and housing values, according to a new report.

Trump’s Pentagon Deep-Sixes Obama’s Transgender Ideology – Breitbart

President Donald Trump’s Pentagon chief is reversing the pro-transgender policy set by former President Barack Obama and will reject soldiers or recruits who demand to be classified as members of the other sex.

The Pentagon’s rejection of the transgender ideology pushed by Obama is a huge win for the feminist and conservative groups who want to preserve the legal and civic distinctions between the two equal, different and complementary male and female biological sexes.

The rejection of Obama’s policy prompted emotional protests from progressives who wish to outlaw and stigmatize the distinctions between women and men, and between girls and boys. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the House’s minority leader, described the revived policy as a “hateful” insult to “our brave transgender members of the military who serve with honor & dignity.”

In their immediate response, progressive advocates tried to smear Trump’s defense of sexual distinctions as “bigotry.”…

House Ethics Committee Finds Democrats Rush And Gutiérrez In Violation – Roll Call

The House Ethics Committee released two separate findings Thursday involving Illinois Democrats implicated in separate infractions.

The Board exhorted students to instead see themselves as Crusaders for Leftist buzzwords: “Crusaders for human rights, social justice, and care for the environment; for respect for different perspectives, cultures, traditions, and identities; and for service in the world, especially to the underserved and vulnerable.”

U.S. Busts ‘Massive’ Iranian Hacking Scheme – Politico

Former Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo Falters Late In His First PGA Tour Round – USA Today

Tony Romo’s PGA Tour debut started out well enough but then he got to the back nine. Romo shot even-par 36 in his first nine holes. But three bogeys and a double took him to 5-over-par 77 for his first round at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship in the Dominican Republic on Thursday.

Romo said part of the problem was he 3-putted three times on the par-72 course that’s 7,670 yards.

“That’s just nerves. Hopefully you can get that out of the way,” he said during a Golf Channel interview. The wedges and chip shots were pretty good, he added. “I had a chance to be under par pretty easily for a while,” he said,

States Win Another Big Case Against Obamacare – CNS

In a decision that has gotten almost no media attention, six states led by Texas have won another round against the Obama administration implementation of Obamacare.

Judge Reed O’Connor, a federal judge in Texas, threw out the Obama administration’s imposition of a federal fee or tax on states as a condition of continuing to receive Medicaid funds. O’Conner ruled March 5 that the fee violates the non-delegation doctrine of the Constitution and the requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act.

The 2010 Obamacare law imposed a “health insurance providers fee” on medical insurers to help pay for the subsidies provided by the federal government to individuals purchasing health insurance. However, the law specifically exempted states from having to pay this fee.

Texas and the other states who filed this lawsuit against the federal government in 2015 provide a majority of Medicaid services for their residents by contracting with, and paying a monthly fee to, managed care organizations, which then provide health care to eligible Medicaid beneficiaries…

A History Of Alleged Intimidation And Tampering In House Hacking Case Marked By Witnesses’ Silence – Daily Caller

Soon after the House of Representatives found that Democratic IT aide Imran Awan and his family made “unauthorized access” to congressional data, Imran hurriedly vacated his house, renting it in February 2017 to a former Marine. Imran angrily told his new tenant, Andre Taggart, that he was homeless and to refuse any certified mail in Imran’s name, Taggart said.

A lawyer contacted Taggart about some items Imran left behind in the house and threatened to sue if he didn’t return them, saying he’d accuse Taggart of theft, Taggart said. The equipment included Blackberries and “hard drives they look like they tried to destroy,” as well as laptops and “a lot of brand new expensive [printer] toner,” he said.

Based on his military training, they appeared to Taggart to be government equipment, and he called the police. The Capitol Police and FBI arrived to collect the computer equipment, and Taggart moved out of the house in May, he said.

Diversity Fail? All-Women Engineering Team Blamed For Collapse Of Miami Pedestrian Bridge – Sandra Rose

The all-women engineering team that designed the ill-fated pedestrian foot bridge at Miami’s Florida International University were highly touted for their advances in a field that is typically dominated by men.

But critics are pointing the finger of blame at the female engineers for design flaws that may have brought the bridge down.

Investigators are still on the scene of last week’s bridge collapse that killed 6 people and injured 9 on the FIU campus in Southwest Miami. The investigation is focusing on the work done by a team of all-women engineers who were employed by one of the construction firms that designed and built the bridge.

Munilla Construction Management (MCM), the South Miami-based firm that designed the FIU foot bridge, has been sued multiple times for unsafe practices in the past. In early March MCM was sued by a construction worker who was severely injured when MCM’s “makeshift bridge” at Miami’s International Airport collapsed…

Manufacturers are benefiting from robust spending by consumers and businesses and solid growth overseas.

Arrests Of Illegal Aliens Up More Than 40 Percent In 2017 – Daily Caller

Arrests of illegal immigrants skyrocketed during President Donald Trump’s first year in office, according to new data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Authorities arrested 155,000 illegal immigrants in 2017, a 41 percent increase over the figure from the previous year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed, according to CNN.

As the Trump administration has eliminated the Obama-era policies that restricted deportation arrests to only those illegals who pose a threat to public safety, the agency is able to cast a wider net and detain foreign individuals who have not been convicted of a crime other than illegal entry into the country…

“Never Seen Such A Large Crowd”: Record Numbers Flock To Florida Gun Show After Shooting – Zero Hedge

A record number of firearms enthusiasts made their way to the Florida State Fairgrounds this weekend to attend the Florida Gun Show, amid a fierce national debate over gun rights following the Valentine’s Day massacre at Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida.

Organizers say almost 7,000 people attended on Saturday, with Sunday’s tally expected to be higher. Organizer Steve Fernandez said they’ve never seen such a large crowd – however it’s possible that the cancellation of next month’s show in Fort Lauderdale may have attracted concerned citizens.

Somewhat ironically, this was to be expected considering the massive effort by gun control advocates to erode as much of the Second Amendment as they can in the wake of the Parkland shooting – never letting a crisis go to waste and all that.

The change to the country’s constitution follows the decision during last October’s National People’s Congress to enshrine Xi’s name in the country’s constitution (see “Xi Could Rule For “Decades” As China’s New Leadership Team Unveiled”), making him the first living leader to be granted such an honor.

In addition, the Party’s appointments to the Politburo lacked a clear successor to Xi…

Illegal Alien Threatens To Shoot Up Rochester High School On Facebook – Democrat And Chronicle

A student with a shotgun made a terrorist threat against East High School on social media, according to Rochester police.

Abigail Hernandez, 21, is charged with making a terroristic threat, a felony. She is currently in the Buffalo Federal Detention Center in Batavia because she is an undocumented immigrant, Rochester Deputy Mayor Cedric Alexander said.

Police said, “The initial threat came from an anonymous Facebook account, which our investigators had to track down and determine the author of the Facebook account.” Hernandez allegedly made the threat at 5:08 p.m. Feb. 15, stating, “I’m coming tomorrow morning and I’m going to shoot all of ya bitches.”

The alleged threat was posted to the East High Facebook page. It has since been taken down.

Hernandez was arrested at home at 8:15 p.m. Feb. 20 after she made a “credible threat” against the school, Alexander said. Police recovered a shotgun in her home…

NY Times Film Critic A.O. Scott Praises Marx-Engels Communist ‘Bromance’ Movie – Newsbusters

Friday’s New York Times promoted what they called “A buddy movie about Communism,” reviewed by film critic A.O. Scott. It was somehow an occasion for whimsey. The headline in the paper was “Red Squares: A Bromance of Ideology.” Online, it was “A Scruffy Specter Haunts Europe.” Scott began:

The history of the world may be the history of class struggle, but the history of class struggle – at least the decisive chapter chronicled in “The Young Karl Marx” – turns out to be a buddy movie.

A mother-daughter duo in Tulsa, Oklahoma, were confronted by an armed robber at their neighborhood liquor store. The girls grabbed their own guns, and a shootout ensued, with the robber ending up in the hospital with serious injuries.

Tulsa’s KUTL reports:

Tulsa police responded to the store near 12th and Memorial just after 6 p.m. Thursday after the clerk called 911, saying they shot the suspect multiple times. The suspect was gone by the time officers arrived, but he later showed up at a local hospital.

Police have identified the suspect as Tyrone Lee and believe he’s connected to 10 other robberies in the area. They say Lee walked into the liquor store Thursday evening with a shotgun, demanding money.

Trump Directs Pentagon To Schedule Military Parade For Veterans Day – Politico

President Donald Trump’s plans for a White House-backed military parade are beginning to take shape. The president has directed the Department of Defense to organize a parade that would take place on Nov. 11 – Veterans Day – according to an unclassified Feb. 20 memo written by National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.

The memo, which was summarized to POLITICO by a senior administration official, was sent from McMaster to Secretary of Defense James Mattis. It says that Trump wants Mattis to brief him on “concepts of operation for this event.” The memo also said that the parade route should begin at the White House and end at the Capitol.

Trump, who revels in pageantry, first floated the idea of putting on a military parade after he witnessed France’s Bastille Day parade last summer as a guest of French president Emmanuel Macron.

“It was a tremendous day, and to a large extent because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4th in Washington,” Trump recalled…

Justin Trudeau’s Laughable, Disastrous Trip To India – Rick Moran

Canada’s handsome Prime Minister Justin Trudeau may be the Inspector Clouseau of world leaders.

One Indian politician tweeted, “FYI we Indians don’t dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood.” The Indian government’s reception of Trudeau has been decidedly lukewarm.

But the gaffe of gaffes occurred yesterday when it was revealed that a man convicted of attempted murder of an Indian politician in Canada had been invited to a state dinner at the embassy in New Delhi.

Seattle Moonbat Mistakes Norwegian Flag For Confederate Flag, Alerts The News Media – RT

When a New York Times bestselling author noticed a blue-and-red flag flying near her home, she tipped off the local newspaper to report a “Confederate flag.” But there was just one little problem – it was a Norwegian flag.

It is at the north-east corner of 92nd and Palatine, just a block west of 92nd and Greenwood Ave N. I would love to know what this ‘means’, but of course don’t want to knock on their door.

Maybe others in the area are flying the flag? Maybe it’s a story? Thank you.”

The Seattle Times was on the case, driving directly to scene. But when they arrived, they didn’t see the Confederate flag at all. It was a Norwegian flag, being proudly flown by a Norwegian-American, who is showing his support to the Scandinavian country during the Olympics.

Arrests Of Illegal Aliens In Boston Increased By More Than 50 Percent In 2017 – Breitbart

Arrests of illegal aliens living in the Boston, Massachusetts area have increased by more than 50 percent, a new report reveals.

Agents with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency arrested nearly 3,000 illegal aliens in the Boston region in Fiscal Year 2017. Compare that to the 1,858 illegal aliens who were arrested the year before when former President Obama’s immigration enforcement was far more lax.

The bulk of the illegal alien arrests came from ICE’s increased enforcement that no longer only strives to deport illegal aliens who have committed crimes against American citizens. For example, more than 1,100 of the illegal alien arrests were for foreign nationals who did not have a criminal history…

Leftist Nightmare Update: GOP Disarms Three More Obamacare Time Bombs Deployed By Democrats – American Spectator

Lost in all the sound and fury that accompanied the recent shutdown of the federal government was some good news for Americans facing ever increasing health care costs. Part of the price paid by the Democrats to get out of the hole they dug for themselves when they forced the shutdown was the suspension of three onerous Obamacare taxes – the medical device tax, the tax on premium (Cadillac) health plans, and the health insurance (HIT) tax.

All three were wildly unpopular with the voters, due to go into effect imminently, and would have made medical care even more expensive.

The 2.3 percent tax on medical devices, which went into effect on January 1, has long been billed by Obamacare advocates as a corporate tax. Like all taxes levied on corporations, however, it would have inevitably been passed on to the customer. And the customers affected by this particular excise tax are Americans who must have crucial medical devices such as pacemakers and artificial joints…

On Jan. 5, 2018, the IG issued a report – “ICE Faces Challenges to Screen Aliens Who May Be Known or Suspected Terrorists” – that discussed the issue.

Jillian Blackwell videotaped a little experiment with her Google home device and shared the results with her friends on Facebook. Her video went viral, and here’s why…

P.E. Teacher Strips Naked And Chases Elementary School Students Around Playground – Daily Caller

An after school P.E. teacher stripped naked and chased California elementary school students on a playground, according to a Tuesday video. A construction worker captured video of the unidentified teacher during and after the incident at Carthay Center Elementary School, reported CBS Los Angeles.

“He was supposed to be helping them learn P.E., run around and have fun,” said one parent to CBS Los Angeles. “But he undressed and started chasing the kids while he was naked, and then the kids ducked and dodged, ran into some of the classrooms and got safe haven that way.”

“The guy could’ve hurt one of the children,” said another parent. “All of the kids [saw] his private parts. Very embarrassing.”

Carthay Center Elementary School told parents it had contacted police in a robocall and letter. The school said it briefly locked down while police took the teacher into custody.

“Our School Police Department is planning to pursue criminal charges against the individual,” a school district spokesperson told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Joseph Roman is fighting on the front lines of progressives’ war against gender and age discrimination.

The 38-year-old from Chicago faces criminal sexual assault charges for alleged attacks on three girls between the ages of six and eight, but prosecutors contend Roman confessed to the crimes because “he is a 9-year-old trapped in an adult’s body,” the Chicago Tribune reports.

Roman reportedly made the admission on video Monday, the same day Chicago Police arrested him for the Class X felony. At Roman’s hearing on Wednesday, prosecutors said the attacks involved three girls from different families who stayed with Roman for extended periods between 2015 and 2018, though it’s unclear why…

.

.
More than three dozen people in St. Lucie County have been busted for dealing drugs as part of ‘Operation Big Mi-Steak.’ Sheriff Ken Mascara said the drug bust was the result of long-term work that began a few year back when Oxycontin abuse became a problem in St. Lucie County.

“We knew and predicted that there would be collateral damage and that collateral damage is heroin and opioid addictions and that’s what we’re seeing now and dealing with now,” said Sheriff Mascara.

In 2016, he changed his mission for heroin overdoses. Sheriff Mascara said he had one or two detectives respond to every overdose, not to arrest the user but to find information on the dealer. He said that initiative paid off…
