“When the taste for physical gratifications among them has grown more rapidly than their education . . . the time will come when men are carried away and lose all self-restraint . . . . It is not necessary to do violence to such a people in order to strip them of the rights they enjoy; they themselves willingly loosen their hold. . . . they neglect their chief business which is to remain their own masters.” -- Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America: Volume 2
A 34-year-old illegal immigrant is accused of molesting a 7-year-old girl at knifepoint in a Queens hotel that is housing illegal immigrants after luring the girl and her twin sister to his room.
Police sources told the New York Post that the girls and their family are staying at the Hotel Mint JFK Airport in Far Rockaway. They were playing in the hallway around 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday when the man convinced the two girls to follow him to a second-story room.
The man allegedly held a knife against one of the girls and molested her.
When the girls’ mother knocked on the door, the man jumped out the window to escape. He later walked back into the building through the hotel lobby, where he was confronted by the girls’ older brother.
A fight ensued, with cops breaking up the brawl and arresting the man. Charges are still pending, and his name has not been released by police.
A neighbor of the hotel, 71-year-old Annette, described the conditions at the hotel as "lawlessness."
"It’s completely lawless," she said. "Clothes hanging out the windows, ruckus every night. Walking around in the rain with no shoes, barely [any] clothes. God help those poor children."
Joe Biden boasted two years ago that the CEO of a major electric bus manufacturer was making him “look good” and federal dollars poured into the company. Now those words have come back to haunt him as an entire town’s electric bus fleet backed by the company broke down.
The Cowboy State Daily reported Tuesday that Teton County and the town of Jackson wanted a low-emission transit system for the county. The Southern Teton Area Rapid Transit (START) system, a joint operation between Jackson and Teton County, had bought eight electric buses to complement its fleet of 31.
But the entire bus fleet broke down so the town’s transit system is now solely relying on its diesel fleet. The last of the electric buses went out of service two months ago and some of the broken buses have been awaiting parts for months.
Three Disney employees, a school athletic director and a father who left his 1-year-old home alone to have sex were among 219 people arrested in a major human trafficking bust in Florida, authorities said Thursday.
The seven-day undercover operation earlier this month led to 44 felonies and 242 misdemeanor charges against the dozens of suspects – 35 of whom are suspected of being in the country illegally, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said during a news conference.
Overall, 83 suspects were charged for soliciting prostitution or traveling to the undercover location to negotiate having sex in exchange for money, the sheriff said.
Freddy Escalona, 30, and Maria Guzman 36, were charged most severely with human trafficking due to “Operation Traffic Stop 2” that started Sept. 19.
Another 17 suspects were accused of collecting money from prostitution or helping prostitutes conduct business.
Tualatin, Oregon – Women’s rights activist and former collegiate champion swimmer Riley Gaines uncovered video Thursday showing a trans male student viciously assaulting a helpless girl at school while fellow students filmed the assault instead of coming to the victim’s aid.
“These documents show a clearer connection between Joe Biden, his public office, and Hunter Biden’s global influence peddling scheme that resulted in over $20 million in payments to the Biden family,” stated Chairman Jason Smith. “In addition to then Vice-President Joe Biden attending lunches and speaking on the phone with his son’s business associates, the details released today paint a fuller picture of how Joe Biden’s vice-presidential office was instrumental to the Biden family’s business schemes.”
The committee published a few snippets from the trove of documents.
Reporter Elaad Eliahu was escorted out of a transgender rights event after asking the panel, "What is a woman?" which received gasps from the crowd at Georgetown University.
The event, which was titled "Trans Rights in America," happened at the Washington D.C. university on September 26, 2023, and was organized in opposition to a speech being given by commentator Michael Knowles from outlet the Daily Wire.
The event's panel featured transgender Montana state Rep. Zooey Zephyr, journalist Erin Reed, Oklahoma state Rep. Mauree Turner, and transgender activist Charlotte Clymer, TimCast reported.
It was Clymer who first responded after reporter Eliahu approached the microphone in the Q&A portion of the event.
Seeking a consensus on terms, the reporter asked, “So what is a woman? And if it is just self-identifying, then is there any limiting principle to that?”
House Republicans held their first impeachment inquiry hearing on Thursday to decide whether President Joe Biden should be impeached. Republicans detailed their probe into the Biden family’s economic practices, while Democrats supported the president and denied any wrongdoing.
South Carolina GOP Rep. Nancy Mace used strong language to criticize Democrats on the committee for dismissing Republican allegations of President Biden’s business connections.
Mace cited a 2017 agreement with the Chinese firm CEFC, stating that the deal involves making millions “off of granting access to Joe Biden.”
“Hunter even arranged for Joe Biden to share office space with the CCP-aligned company CEFC. My Democrat colleagues say none of this is relevant because Joe Biden wasn’t vice president while his family did these shady deals,” Mace said. “Turns out that’s complete and total bulls—. It’s a lie.”
“Biden referred to access his father as the keys to his family’s only asset. Those words are going to come back and haunt Hunter Biden and his family forever,” she added.
The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability held its first hearing on the impeachment of Joe Biden on Thursday.
The three witnesses testifying today are:
Bruce Dubinsky, Founder, Dubinsky Consulting (forensic accountant)
Eileen O’Connor, Former Assistant Attorney General, Department of Justice Tax Division
Jonathan Turley, Shapiro Chair for Public Interest Law, George Washington University Law School
House Oversight Chairman James Comer was on fire in his opening statement Thursday morning.
“At least ten times, Joe Biden lied to the American people that he never spoke to his family about their business dealings,” Comer said. “He lied by telling the American people that there was an “absolute wall” between his official government duties and his personal life.
In a recent post on his Truth Social tech platform, former President Donald Trump promised his supporters that, if reelected in 2024, he will go after MSNBC and NBC News for committing "country-threatening treason."
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), with the support of at least 17 states, has filed its long-awaited antitrust lawsuit against Amazon for allegedly engaging in illegal conduct and "monopolistic practices" within its online store and merchant services.
After a pair of women allegedly shoplifted items from a nail supply store in southern California earlier this month, one of them came back to the Murrieta store and brazenly demanded her phone, which she accidentally left behind — and things soon grew worse.
