- 12/02/18--05:22: George HW Bush Oldest, Youngest, First, And Best Historic Milestones
One of Yellowstone’s most famous wolves, known as 926F, was killed by a trophy hunter just outside of the park last week, the New York Times reports. The black she-wolf, known as Spitfire by wolf lovers, was the leader of the Lamar Canyon pack and the daughter of the famous subject of the book, American Wolf: A True Story of Survival and Obsession in the West.
Deputy Edward Eason has been placed on “restrictive duty” by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, CNN is reporting. The office reportedly made the decision after hearing testimony from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission. The commission was formed after 17 students and faculty were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14. While the conversation about how this tragedy could have been prevented is largely focused on gun regulations, further investigation has revealed that officers and authority figures also dropped the ball when it came to saving lives.
Eason, for example, had prior knowledge of Nikolas Cruz, who carried out the shooting. The sheriff’s office had received 23 calls about Cruz or his brother since 2008. These reports were handled both on the phone and in person, with Eason meeting with Cruz’s mother at some points. Further investigation from the sheriff’s department concluded that these instances weren’t handled properly.
Police have been investigating whether the 15 year-old boy they arrested recently in Dallas, Texas, could be involved in a series of three rapes in the city, as well as the murder of a 23 year-old woman this week, reports the Dallas News. He is now the number one suspect, and has been taken into police custody as of 7 p.m. yesterday.
The juvenile suspect’s name is not being released to the public due to his age, reports state. What is known is that the authorities have stated their desire to have him stand trial as an adult due to the nature of his alleged crimes. The boy invoked his right to remain silent without his attorney present during his initial arrest.
It was the quintessential Canadian heist.
In the town of Nanton, Alberta, officers with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police found $20,000 worth of stolen maple syrup after the alleged thief led them on a high-speed chase. As Chat News Today reported, the incident took place on Wednesday, when mounties said they located a truck being loaded with stolen goods.
As officers approached the truck, they said the driver took off running and jumped into a silver car, fleeing the area. They were eventually able to catch up with the getaway car near the town of Black Diamond, and officers who were investigating the stolen goods found $100,000 worth of property — including $20,000 worth of maple syrup. It was not clear what else made up the stolen goods.
The mounties arrested three people — 20-year-old Shelby Kalman, 28-year-old Shawn Mclaughlin, and 23-year-old Char-lee Fernel. They all face charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and a slew of other charges, including possession of controlled substances.
After a period of outward quiet leading into the 2018 midterm elections on November 6, Russia investigation Special Counsel Robert Mueller burst back into headlines this week, eliciting a second guilty plea from Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer and “fixer,” Michael Cohen, as Inquisitr reported. Muller also took Trump’s 2016 campaign chief, Paul Manafort, back to court for lying to the special counsel’s investigators, even after striking a plea deal of his own with Mueller, avoiding a second trial on a range of financial crimes, as Inquisitr reported.
Mueller appears to be moving closer to Trump’s inner circle of associates and even family members; he may now have both Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump, Jr. in his sights, as Inquisitr has also reported. Trump has grown “spooked” and “completely distracted” by the new developments, according to what a source told CNN Senior Diplomatic Correspondent Michell Kosinski, who reported the source’s information via Twitter.
The CIA has found that Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman sent at least 11 texts to his adviser who oversaw the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to a new report.
Since Khashoggi’s grisly murder in Istanbul’s Saudi embassy in early October, there has been widespread speculation on whether or not the Saudi crown prince was directly involved in giving the orders for his death. While Saudi Arabia has repeatedly maintained that its de facto head had nothing to do with the murder of dissident journalist Khashoggi, who was forced to flee his country in 2017 after writing articles critical of his country’s administration, evidence gathered by Turkey and now CIA has indicated that he was, in fact, deeply instrumental in the journalist’s murder.
Michael Cohen’s family hopes that they can help the embattled lawyer avoid going to jail.
This week, Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer pleaded guilty to charges that he lied to Congress about Trump’s plans to land a major real estate deal in Russia, which Cohen admitted went on much longer than both had originally said.
As the New York Daily News noted, Cohen’s family is asking a New York judge to have mercy on the lawyer for the risks he took to come forward with the information.
Maurice Cohen, Michael’s Polish-born father, wrote a two-page letter asking that Michael be allowed to stay out of jail.
George H.W. Bush had no problem publicly turning his back on one of the Republican Party’s biggest allies, the NRA.
Now, the stance that was seen as bold at the time is being praised as an example of Bush’s bipartisan legacy and fiercely independent political nature.
With all the memorials being written after the passing of the 41st president this week, special attention has been paid to his public rebuke of the National Rifle Association in 1995. As The Hill recalled, Bush had a lifetime membership to the gun-rights lobbyist group but vehemently disagreed when NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre referred to federal agents as “jack-booted thugs.”
This prompted Bush to write a public resignation letter.
Former president George H.W. Bush spent his final hours on Friday surrounded by his friends and loved ones in his Houston home, and, as a new report noted, uttered his final words in a speakerphone conversation with his son, former president George W. Bush, after the younger Bush called his father to say goodbye.
According to a report from the New York Times, the elder Bush spoke one last time to his son and namesake on Friday night, who was calling from his Dallas home. When George W. Bush was put on the speakerphone, he told his father that he had been a “wonderful dad,” adding that he loved him. This prompted a response from the 41st president of the United States, who replied with what turned out to be his last words.
“I love you, too.”
George H.W. Bush passed away at 94-years-0ld, and during those nine and a half decades, Bush 41 made historic milestones. As the world mourns the passing of the former American president, he is remembered for these milestones today. The nation will say their final goodbye to President George H.W. Bush during the next few days. The former president’s funeral services will start early this week and end mid-week with his burial in Texas.
During the several services and memorials for H.W. this week, many speeches will honor the former president. These speeches are sure to mention these milestones and accomplishments by George H.W. Bush during his 94 years of life. Starting with George H.W. Bush making history as the longest-lived president in the US, according to the Springfield News-Sun.
The NYPD is on a manhunt, but it’s not a criminal they’re trying to find.
This week, viral CCTV video showed a man proposing to his girlfriend on a street in Manhattan but fumbling the exchange of the ring. As the BBC noted, the pricey piece of jewelry slipped through his fingers and fell through a grate, where it was lost.
Some police officers saw the footage and were able to fish the ring out from inside the grate. They cleaned it up as well, but now need to find the couple who ultimately abandoned the effort. As the report noted, the NYPD released the CCTV video in the hopes that someone knows the couple and can reunite them with the lost ring.
Four 15-year-old suspects in a criminal investigation at a Maryland high school were released after their parents paid a $20,000 bond, reports KRON4 News. The four suspects, Kristian Lee, Jean Claude Abedi, Caleb Thorpe, and Will Smith, all of whom were members of the junior varsity squad at Damascus High, face multiple felony charges related to the incident. The four youths will be tried as adults.
The charges against the youths stem from the alleged sexual assaults against four fellow teammates that involved a broomstick. These assaults were said to have taken place this past Halloween. Witnesses and suspects, according to a police report, said that the alleged assaults were part of a hazing ritual, reports The Baltimore Sun.
“I would caution anyone to refer to this as hazing,” warned John McCarthy, who serves as State Attorney for Montgomery County. “These boys were victims of criminal acts. They were not victims of hazing. They were victims of first-degree rapes and attempted rapes. These were crimes.”
Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is putting out signals that indicate that he is getting ready for his big move according to a top Watergate prosecutor. Reportedly anyone with experience in mob and racketeering cases knows the signs when a big indictment is in the works.
The Hill is reporting that Mueller is telegraphing his next play by distributing lenient sentences to those who have the most information to give about a high-value target or targets. Nick Akerman, an assistant special Watergate prosecutor is giving his perspective on what Mueller’s actions are telling those in the know.
“What it means is that Mueller is teeing up a major indictment against other individuals relating to the conspiracy between Russia and the Trump campaign.”
During an interview that marked the first time he has spoken out since TMZ released video footage of his assault on a woman at a Cleveland hotel earlier this year, Kareem Hunt apologized, conceded that he has no excuse for his actions he took on that February evening, and declared that he is prepared to face whatever consequences may come of them.
A Hawaii preschool is at the center of heightened controversy after preschoolers were given Pine-Sol that was mistaken for apple juice. According to WSB-TV, on Tuesday, November 27, a teaching assistant at Kilohana United Methodist Church Preschool in Honolulu, Hawaii, was accused of giving the juice to three students.
It has been reported that the teaching assistant was preparing snacks for the children while they were in the restroom. She reportedly “mistook a container of yellow-brown liquid for apple juice found on a cleaning cart in the kitchen,” according to the health department’s review. Despite the teaching assistant’s alleged blunder, it is important to note that the liquid was stored in the original bottle which was properly labeled, “Pine Sol.”
“The liquid was in the original Pine-Sol container and proper labeled. All the food items in the kitchen are properly stored and labeled in the kitchen cabinets.”
A year before his grisly murder, Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi sent a series of WhatsApp messages expressing sharp criticism of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. CNN reports that the slain columnist sent more than 400 texts using the app to fellow Saudi exile Omar Abdulaziz discussing the prince’s state of mind and planning support for a movement against Saudi authorities.
In the messages, he calls the crown prince a “beast” and says that bin Salman is relentless in his attempts to silence critics. In May, after a group of female activists were arrested, he sent a message to the Montreal-based Abdulaziz saying that the arrests were unjustified and that the prince will even turn on those who support him.
“Arrests are unjustified and do not serve him (logic says), but tyranny has no logic, but he loves force, oppression and needs to show them off. He is like a beast ‘pac man’ the more victims he eats, the more he wants,” he wrote.
An angry spa customer in Queens pulled out a hammer and attacked two workers who refused to include a “happy ending” for his foot massage, and the NYPD has released video of the brutal attack in the hopes of identifying the perpetrator.
The incident happened late on Saturday, when police say the man walked into the Tao Spa Bodywork near Main Street in Flushing at 10:30 p.m. and paid for a foot massage. As the New York Daily News reported, surveillance video showed the man demanding a refund from the 55-year-old worker after she turned down his request for an “erotic massage.”
The man then pulled out a hammer and dragged the woman into the waiting room, where he punched her in the face. When other employees rushed to help her, the man grabbed another 56-year-old woman by the throat and threw her against the wall.
Hollywood executive Salim Akil has been accused of domestic violence, sexual abuse, and breach of contract, according to a report from the Hollywood Reporter. In a complaint filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court on November 20, the Black Lightning producer is being accused by actress and alleged ex-lover Amber Dixon Brenner.
Brenner claims she and the producer, who has been married to writer and producer Mara Brock Akil since 1999, were involved for over 10 years. Throughout their relationship, Brenner says Akil was violent and has accused him of slapping her, physically assaulting her, and forcing her to perform sexual acts on him on numerous occasions.
A senior ISIS leader who was involved in the killing of former U.S. Army Ranger Peter Kassig has been killed in a drone strike in Syria on Sunday, the U.S.-led coalition said.
Per an article by Fox News, coalition spokesperson Col. Sean Ryan said in a statement that the ISIS leader — identified as Abu al Umarayn — was killed in a precision drone attack along with several other members of the terror group in Syria’s Badiyah Desert.
According to officials, Al Umarayn indicated that his group posed an imminent threat to Coalition Forces and he was involved in the killing of American Citizen and former U.S. Army Ranger, Peter Kassig, the report said.
“He has been linked to and directly involved with executing several other prisoners as a senior ISIS member.”
The statement also added that “coalition airstrikes continue to disrupt ISIS command and control on the battlefield as we remove key figures from their ranks.”
Tereza Hluskova, currently 22-years-old, is a popular model from the Czech Republic. Hluskova was caught and charged for allegedly trying to smuggle over $1 million worth of heroin onto her flight from Lahore, Pakistan to Dublin, Ireland in January 2018. She was said to be holding the drugs in her suitcase and she is currently still on bail in Pakistan. The Daily Mail recently reported on her tearful outburst when she found out her trial was being postponed again.
Tereza is now looking at facing up to ten years in prison if she is convicted of smuggling the heroin. Were she from Pakistan, where she was stopped, Tereza’s alleged crime of smuggling nine kilograms of heroin would have her close to the death penalty in that country, as such is the law there for anyone caught with ten or more kilograms. Apparently, two other men were also arrested and are on trial for drug trafficking charges after the authorities sifted through Tereza’s phone record.
