…Two women — Sameerah Williams, of Newark, and Antwanajah Barnhill, of Irvington — and Ibn Shabazz, an East Orange man, were all arrested Friday at a hotel in Elizabeth. Prosecutors say the three booked room reservations for the girls and set up online ads on backpage.com that sometimes featured photos of the girls. When clients contacted a listed number in the ads, the defendants then allegedly would answer, arrange a meeting, and send messages to the victims via one of several web applications advising them where to go, when, how long their “date” would be, and how much to charge for their services… Source: WPIX-TV

A soldier for 27 years, Russell is the product manager for the Army’s Individual Weapons and Small Arms program and requires a Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information clearance for his job. According to The Washington Times, Picatinny Arsenal in Wharton, N.J., where Russell works, was chosen as a terrorist “dry run” for a car bomb, and hackers have tried to obtain information on personnel stationed there.
Concerned by the multiple threats, Russell applied for a concealed-carry permit—a process that would have resulted in issuance of a permit in most states with reasonable carry laws. But not in New Jersey. Russell’s application was quickly turned down—no ifs, ands or buts. And an appeal didn’t go any better.
“None of these threats appear to specifically relate to this applicant—he is in no different position than any other person who is assigned to that facility,” Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni said…

… First they’ll beg for it, later they will come get it.
This tax amnesty for corporate offshore funds is exactly what Donald Trump wants to do to bring back hundreds of billions of dollars of offshore profits of American companies to the U.S.
The following article was published by Bloomberg:
Argentine President Mauricio Macri announced an amnesty on an estimated $500 billion of unregistered funds stashed abroad to pay pensioners and help fund a multi-billion dollar infrastructure program.
The funds will pay a tax of zero percent to 15 percent depending on the amount and when they are brought back into the country, the government said in a statement. The government needs to raise 47 billion pesos ($3.4 billion) to pay legal sentences awarded to pensioners, and another 75 billion pesos a year to pay higher pensions in future.
“Today with this law we’re sending to Congress we’re seeking to repair years of injustice because we’ve found lots…

Nearly half a year ago, I reported that speech crime has come to America: New York City can fine employers for up to $¼ million for failing to call an employee by his/her “preferred name, pronoun, or title. In other words, if a biological male employee imagines himself to be a woman, his employer is bound by city law to address him as “she”.

As Mayor Bill De Blasio’s New York City Commission on Human Rights puts it:
“In New York City, it’s illegal to discriminate on the basis of gender identity and gender expression in the workplace, in public spaces, and in housing.

Portland Police Chief Larry O’Dea may be in hot water after accidentally shooting a close friend in a hunting accident.
O’Dea neglected to tell deputies responding to the call that he had shot his hunting companion and instead suggested that the man had shot himself.
O’Dea never even identified himself as an officer when questioned by deputies who responded to the shooting on April 21.
The responding deputy was unaware that O’Dea was the police chief and the actual shooter until May 16 when he interviewed the wounded man.
The officer, a Harney county Deputy, said in a statement to the Oregonian/Oregon live that the shooting “didn’t happen the way it was originally portrayed,”
Deputy Ward also stated that “”The victim made it pretty clear he didn’t shoot himself,” Ward said. “The victim knew who shot him.”
It was at this point that the…

A powerful image of a Haitian West Point cadet on his graduation day comes just a few days short of Memorial Day.
Second Lt. Alix Schoelcher Idrache stood with his cap in hand and tears streaming down his face during the commencement ceremony at West Point in New York on Saturday, as he graduated along with 950 classmates.
Army Staff Sgt. Vito T. Bryant snapped a picture of the newly graduated 2nd lieutenant during a poignant moment and had it posted on West Point’s Facebook page, where it has been viewed numerous times.

An immigrant from Haiti, the hardworking Caribbean worked his way through the nation’s most prestigious military schools, earned his U.S. citizenship and served for two years as an enlisted Soldier with the Maryland Army National Guard.
“I woke up this…
