In a new report by Security Studies Group as relayed by the Federalist, a damning revelation has come to light which suggests that slain Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi was actively acting in collusion with an executive from the Qatar Foundation — a group funded by Saudi Arabia’s “regional nemesis, Qatar” as the Washington Post puts it — to produce political propaganda.
In an article posted just before Christmas Day, on December 21, the Washington Post buried a bit of potentially damaging information in the midst of a lengthy article profiling Khashoggi.
While Donald Trump is still determined to get funding for the border wall between Mexico and the United States, politicians are suggesting there might be better uses for the $5 billion budget. According to Business Insider, one Texas Congressman, in particular, is taking a stand against the border wall, insisting that what America really needs is better border security.
Democratic Texas Congressman Henry Cuellar, who lives by the border, is calling for the funds set aside for the border wall to be used instead to promote better border security and border technology. He’s publicly dismissed the idea of a wall, calling it, “a 14th-century solution.”
It looks like Ryan Chamberlain has claimed yet another victim on General Hospital this week. This will be his third time that he has killed someone in Port Charles and it doesn’t look like anyone can stop him now. How long will he go before this serial killer is discovered to still be alive?
On Thursday’s episode, Ryan met up with TV producer Peyton Mills in his very private makeshift studio. That was likely one fatal mistake. SheKnows Soaps indicates that Ryan claims another victim and this guy is likely one of them. Mills is finishing up the documentary of Ryan Chamberlain’s trail of murders 25 years ago, but that isn’t all. The producer has a theory that the serial killer really didn’t die in the fire long ago and is still walking among them. Unfortunately for him, his theory is indeed correct.
As the government enters day seven of a partial shutdown, blame is being passed back and forth between President Donald Trump and the Democrats, who have both cited each other as the reason why a solution cannot be found. For White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, CBS News reported, the problem isn’t a willingness to negotiate but a lack of Democrats coming to the table.
During the early morning hours of Friday, December 28, Sanders appeared on CBS This Morning, where she claimed that President Trump was “willing to negotiate” with Democrats on the $5 billion he requested to fund building his 2016 presidential campaign-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. She did not, however, provide any specifics as to what the president might be willing to agree to.
The problem, Sanders alleged, was with members of the Democratic party that have “left the table altogether.”
New images from security cameras at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, have been released. The footage shows shooter Nicholas Cruz carrying an AR-15 as he walked around the school halls.
The footage was published on Friday by the Sun-Sentinel, as part of an investigation into the February 14 massacre which saw 17 people dead. The detailed report regards the alleged incompetence on the part of the Broward County Sheriff’s office and school district that resulted in a delayed response to the shooting.
Pictures of the terrified students gathering as they responded to the fire alarm were also released, as well as photos of the destruction done to the hurricane windows which ended up preventing Cruz from aiming deadly shots at first respondents on the scene.
KTLA’s weekend anchor, Chris Burrous, was discovered unconscious at the Days Inn located at 450 Pioneer Drive in Glendale yesterday afternoon. According to Sgt. Dan Suttles, Burrous’ cause of death is being investigated as a possible drug overdose.
Detectives are waiting for the official report from the coroner’s office to confirm the anchor’s cause of death, CBS Los Angeles reports.
According to Glendale police, they received a phone call from a man explaining that another man who he was with at the motel had passed out — and might not be breathing. When first responders arrived on scene, they found the 43-year-old news anchor unconscious and not breathing. After administering CPR, Burrous was taken to a hospital, where he later died.
Don Corsini, the station’s president and general manager, and Jason Ball, the station’s news director, issued a joint statement on Burrous’ passing on Thursday night.
Advertisers using a digital billboard on U.S. Route 441 in Florida got a bit more press than expected when hackers hijacked the ads and changed them to include bizarre and provocative messages. Local news outlet WTSP was informed of the changes after an eagle-eyed driver spotted the unusual ads on Christmas Day.
One restaurant promoting a dog-friendly patio had a picture of a corgi declaring “Satan is the one true God.” Another featured a Gorilla declaring it had been “a very naughty boy.” A third seemed to mock less than savvy internet users, reading “Where do I buy milk. Where to buy milk. Place to buy milk.”
And in what should be apparent after reading this article, another modified ad proclaimed “These people think connecting a billboard to the internet is a good idea. These people are wrong.”
Undercover Colors, the company who makes the new date rape drug detector, says that the holidays are the “most vulnerable time of the year” for sexual assault. Their product, SipChip, helps people who are out socializing to reduce the incidence of “drug-facilitated rape” by detecting chemicals placed in drinks.
Business Wire says that SipChip, the detection device, is small enough as not to be detected, yet it works in under 30 seconds, detecting more chemicals than any other product on the market.
Barbara Cook, the CEO of Undercover Colors, explains that putting something into someone’s drink without their knowledge and consent is always considered criminal activity.
Just an hour after Christmas ended on Wednesday morning, Cpl. Ronil Singh, an officer with the Stanislaus County Sheriff in Newman, California, was gunned down during a routine traffic stop. A two-day manhunt ensued for the man who had killed him, and now Kern County sheriff’s deputies have arrested the suspect, a man by the name of Gustavo Perez Arriaga.
According to a report by USA Today, Perez Arriaga was tracked down to a house in Bakersfield, California, about 280 miles away from the scene of the crime.
The suspect was identified on Thursday, according to Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson. The sheriff added that Perez Arriaga, who is Mexican, had been living in the United States illegally.
“We were never more than a step behind this guy,” Christianson said in a press conference.
Just in time for the holidays, WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon dressed up in a red velvet and white fur-trimmed Santa Claus costume and delivered a much anticipated gift to John Cena fans.
The longtime wrestler is scheduled to return to WWE programming on New Year’s Day. He’ll be appearing on WWE Raw and SmackDown, once two of television’s top rated shows, MSN News disclosed.
WWE shared the video on Twitter the week before John’s triumphant return to the ring.
“VinceMcMahon, oh…er… #SantaClaus, has a few AMAZING announcements to make on #Raw!” the tweet said.
“Santa Claus has presents for all you little boys and girls. Matter of fact, the greatest of all time, John Cena, is back,” McMahon revealed in the video. “He’s back on Raw, he’s back on SmackDown.”
A woman in Texas delivered a baby boy earlier this month that was 21.5 inches long and weighed a whopping 14 pounds and 13 ounces when he came out of her womb, setting a new record at the hospital he was born at.
Jennifer and Eric Medlock’s new son, Ali James Medlock, was born via caesarean section on December 12 at the Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital in Arlington, Texas. A spokesperson for Texas Health Resources confirmed to USA Today that he is the largest baby on record to be born at the medical facility.
Additionally, the beautiful big baby’s mother — who, like her husband, is a music teacher — said that the doctor told her Ali was the largest baby he has ever ushered into the world and he has been in the baby delivery business for more than 30 years, reported NBC New York.
Just four days before Democrats take control of the House of Representatives, opening what promises to be a new, more adversarial era in Donald Trump’s relationship with Congress, CBS reported that the second-ranking House Democrat delivered a sharp message to Trump — “come to grips with reality.”
Trump on Friday morning took to his Twitter account to escalate his rhetoric over the current government shutdown caused by his refusal to sign a funding bill without money allocated to build his hoped-for wall along the United States-Mexico border, as the Inquisitr reported.
“We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve.”
Monday night will see people taking to the streets all over the world for celebrations to ring in the new year. With those massive crowds of people come huge safety concerns for law enforcement, and the police in New York City have come up with a plan to combat these potential issues that will require much less man-power.
As reported by Reuters, the NYPD will be making use of drones on New Year’s Eve in the city, particularly to monitor the crowds that will gather in Times Square to watch the ball drop into 2019. They also added that there are no imminent dangers or threats made to the celebrations, and that the presence of the drone is merely a precautionary measure.
This past summer, the disappearance of Mollie Tibbetts captured the nation.
For weeks, countless officers and volunteers searched for the missing University of Iowa student, hoping that she would be found alive. But unfortunately, the story ended up having a sad ending when Tibbetts was found dead in the middle of a cornfield.
Now, Tibbetts’ mother, Laura Calderwood, is opening up to the Washington Post and sharing the heartbreaking details of her daughter’s murder. Calderwood tells the publication that multiple stab wounds were what killed her daughter. Not only was she stabbed in the chest multiple times, but she was also stabbed in the skull, according to her mother.
“Mollie’s death was horrific,” she says.
The Federalist writers and editors are mourning the sudden death of one of their colleagues this weekend as staff writer Bre Payton passed away after falling into a coma today. Payton was just 26-years-old at the time of her passing.
While there has yet to be an official statement confirming her cause of death, her Caring Bridge page reports that doctors concluded she was suffering from “the H1N1 flu and possibly meningitis” at the time of her passing.
“Around 8:30, on December 27th, Bre’s friend went into her room and found her unresponsive and barely breathing. She immediately called 911 and Bre was taken to the hospital where she was admitted to the ICU, sedated & intubated, and doctors began working up a diagnosis,” the page said as it explained what happened to the staff writer leading up to her death.
The Federalist‘s publisher Ben Domenech took to Twitter to ask readers to pray for their staff writer early this morning, December 28.
As a result of Tucker Carlson’s “hemorrhage” of advertisers on Fox News, the channel now has to alter the ad/commercial structure on the show in an effort to spread the sponsors out over the course of Tucker Carlson Tonight.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Carlson’s show dropped from 40 advertisers per night to 21 in reaction to his blunt comments about immigration, saying that immigration makes this country “poorer and dirtier and more divided.” Carlson’s show hit its new low this past Wednesday, and it’s likely to keep shrinking as a result of boycott efforts.
The hourlong show went from five standard advertiser breaks to four, adding in some “house” ads that promote other Fox shows as filler to make up for the losses. Just today, Farmers Insurance decided to “halt” advertising on Carlson’s show, joining Samsung, Pfizer, and IHOP, who have all decided to part ways with the program.
“There was quite a bit of blood and it was uncomfortable to walk the next day.”
On Christmas Eve, a 61-year-old bodybuilder finally completed his two-year journey to cover his body in tattoos. Ray Houghton, who hails from Manchester, England, wrapped his penis around a rolling pin to have the final tattoo of his ink body suit completed. That tattoo artist also inked the gym owner’s testicles, per New York Post.
Houghton, who had the tattoo inked in his gym in Alicante, Spain, said that his usual tattoo artist would not ink his private parts. The father-of-one spent three months trying to find a tattooist who was willing to work on such a sensitive area.
“We used a rolling pin because that was the easiest way for the tattoo to be done. You can’t just do it on a bench or worktop.”
“It was quite weird at first but it made a lot of sense. It worked out perfect really.”
An Oregon woman was caught on video allegedly harassing an African American family, including spitting at them and even pulling a knife, over a dispute over a parking space.
As the Oregonian reports, Emora Roberson, 20, who is African American, was driving with her boyfriend, aunt, and 15-month-old daughter on Christmas Eve when they stopped at a shopping center for some last-minute gifts. Roberson parked her Kia Sedona in an empty spot next to a parked pickup truck.
The trouble began almost immediately. Roberson says that the driver of the truck, a white woman, accused Roberson of having parked “crooked.” This apparently enraged the woman, who reportedly began using racist slurs against the family.
“My daughter was fast asleep, and this woman was basically trying to get into our car.”
A California sheriff says that were it not for so-called “sanctuary cities,” one of his deputies would still be alive, KION-TV (Monterey) is reporting.
Last week, Newman Police Department corporal Ronil Singh pulled over Gustavo Perez Arriaga, 32, on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI). About three minutes after initiating the stop, according to the Modesto Bee, a “shots fired” call came into dispatch. When backup arrived, they found Singh on the ground — he was taken to a hospital, where he later died. Arriaga had allegedly fled the scene.
Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said at the time that a minor DUI stop is hardly a reason to take an officer’s life.
“For a suspect to take an officer’s life over a driving under the influence, doesn’t make any logical sense to me, nor anyone else. But no traffic stop and no contact in today’s world is run of the mill.”
Fox News commentator Bre Payton reportedly died after contracting the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu — nine years after her own network questioned whether the government response to the deadly virus amounted to “hysteria.”
The conservative writer and Fox News commentator died days after falling gravely ill during the week. As the Associated Press reported, the 26-year-old had grown suddenly ill with the H1N1 virus and “possibly meningitis.” Her death prompted an outpouring of sympathies from fellow media figures, but also shed a light on the past efforts of Fox News to cast doubt on the government response during a 2009 outbreak of the Swine Flu.
Back in 2009, the network reported on rumors originating on far-right blogs and conspiracy theory sites that the Obama administration was planning to declare martial law and issue “compulsory vaccinations” to the flu. Though none of the measures were ever actually proposed, Fox News columnist Katie Cobb wrote a story questioning whether such measures would amount to “hysteria.”
