A Black Lives Matter supporter at St. John’s University allegedly punched a white female for having a “Trump: Make America Great Again” sticker on her computer.
The Twitter user OCK PAPI (since identified as Clifford Durand), who is a black male with #BLM in his Twitter bio, posted a picture of the young woman on Twitter with the caption, “7000 retweets and i’ll smash this bitch’s computer.”
The husband of a female prison guard who has gone on the run with with a Syrian rapist fears they will join Islamic State.
Vasili Magdici, 25, has revealed how his estranged wife, Swiss prison officer Angela Magdici became fascinated with Syria and started reading the Koran before helping her asylum seeker lover break out of jail.
Police say 32-year-old Mrs Magdici freed Hassan Kiko, a Syrian migrant jailed for raping a schoolgirl, from Limmattal jail in Dietikon, Zurich, this week.
Iran has released new photographs in which at least one of the recently captured U.S. sailors is crying, according to a series of the pictures posted on social media.
The pictures, as well as an accompanying video, were released by Iranian state-controlled news outlets and disseminated on Twitter by Iranian reporters early Wednesday.
The new photographs come on the heels of another set of pictures that showed Iranian military forces detaining the U.S. sailors at gun point and forcing them to place their hands upon their heads while kneeling on a ship.
Senator Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary last night, beating out Hillary Clinton with almost 60% of the vote. According to a report from Politico this morning, the loss is causing the Clinton campaign to re-focus their attention on racial injustice and criminal justice reform.
In addition, Clinton will be hitting the campaign trail with Sybrina Fulton and Gwen Carr, who are the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner respectively. Both Fulton and Carr endorsed Clinton last month, citing their faith in Hillary’s stance on gun violence.
Allies to Hillary Clinton say her presidential campaign’s problems boil down to a fundamental problem: messaging.
On the heels of a devastating loss to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in New Hampshire on Tuesday night, Clinton supporters having nightmares about a repeat of her 2008 primary loss say it’s time for a change.
They say Clinton has to quickly find her way out of this messaging conundrum and provide voters with a reason why they should elect the former secretary of state and first lady to the Oval Office.
“I love her but I still don’t understand what her campaign is about,” said one longtime supporter, who argues that the failure to find a singular message for why she should be elected president is a huge issue for Team Clinton.
Clinton was bracing for a loss in New Hampshire.
All week, the campaign set expectations by arguing that the Granite State would be an uphill fight. Sanders is from a neighboring state, they said, and entered with a big lead in polls.
In response to the federal government raids announced at the beginning of this year to apprehend undocumented Central American immigrants, public schools in Los Angeles, where about 50 percent of the student body is Hispanic, will not allow immigration authorities to enter the campuses.
The decision taken on Tuesday by the Los Angeles Unified School District board is for all schools, from kindergarten through high school, to be declared “safe zones” and resource centers for students and families threatened by the enforcement of immigration laws.
According to the proposal presented by board president Steve Zimmer, any request by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to come onto LAUSD school property must be submitted to the superintendent and the school district’s general counsel for review.
The number of sexual offence complaints almost quadrupled at this year’s carnival celebrations in Cologne, German police said Wednesday, despite heightened security aimed at preventing a repeat of the mass assaults that marred the city’s New Year celebrations.
A total of 66 complaints for sexual insults or aggression were lodged between last Thursday, when the carnival got underway and Wednesday morning. The previous year there were 18 such reports, police said.
However part of the rise could be down to “a change in the attitude of victims and witnesses,” the police added.
President Barack Obama will not endorse a candidate in the Democratic primary, but there is no doubt where he is leaning, according to former White House press secretary Jay Carney.
“I think the president has signaled while still remaining neutral that he supports Secretary Clinton’s candidacy and would prefer to see her as the nominee,” Carney said on CNN Wednesday following coverage of the president’s speech to the Illinois state Senate in Springfield.
Obama will not “officially embrace her unless and until it’s clear she is going to be the nominee,” Carney said.
“I think he is maintaining that tradition of not intervening in a party primary,” he added. “But I don’t think there is any doubt that he wants Hillary to win the nomination and believes she would be the best candidate in the fall and the most effective as president in carrying forward what he has achieved.”
The Senate approved new sanctions Wednesday against North Korea to make it harder for the reclusive nation to access funds to develop long-range missiles and nuclear warheads. The House passed a similar measure last month.
Yet any sanctions Congress imposes are unlikely to deter North Korea, which fired a long-range rocket on Sunday and conducted a nuclear test last month in violation of U.N. resolutions. The reason sanctions are ineffective: China.
China is the financier: Most banks that North Korea uses to finance trade, imports and weapons programs work through China, said Richard Fisher, vice president of the International Assessment and Strategy Center.
Chris Christie — the brash New Jersey governor whose fast rise in Republican politics was undone by a petty scheme to clog traffic on a bridge — has decided to suspend his presidential campaign, according to two Republicans briefed on his deliberations.
Christie held a meeting and conference call with campaign staff at 4 p.m. to inform them of his decision, the Republicans said.
Christie finished sixth in Tuesday’s primary in New Hampshire, the state on which he had pinned his last presidential hopes. Christie spent 71 days campaigning in the Granite State, and he had his best debate here just days before the primary — flustering rival Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) into robotic repetition by criticizing his lack of experience in office.
Hillary Clinton loves black people. And black people love Hillary—or so it seems. Black politicians have lined up in droves to endorse her, eager to prove their loyalty to the Clintons in the hopes that their faithfulness will be remembered and rewarded.
Black pastors are opening their church doors, and the Clintons are making themselves comfortably at home once again, engaging effortlessly in all the usual rituals associated with “courting the black vote,” a pursuit that typically begins and ends with Democratic politicians making black people feel liked and taken seriously.
Doing something concrete to improve the conditions under which most black people live is generally not required.
At least a dozen email accounts handled the “top secret” intelligence that was found on Hillary Clinton’s server and recently deemed too damaging for national security to release, a U.S. government official close to the review told Fox News.
The official said the accounts include not only Clinton’s but those of top aides – including Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Jake Sullivan and Philippe Reines – as well as State Department Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy and others.
A second source not authorized to speak on the record said the number of accounts involved could be as high as 30 and reflects how the intelligence was broadly shared, replied to, and copied to individuals using the unsecured server.
The pop superstar is being accused of using her performance to attack police officers.
“I think it was outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers, who are the people who protect her and protect us,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told CBS2’s Dick Brennan.
Beyonce and her dancers were wearing leather and black berets, which was apparently a nod to the Black Panthers movement.
One dance formation seemed to acknowledge Malcolm X, and other dancers had fists in the air, which was reminiscent of the black power salutes of the 1960s and 70s.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told CBS2 that the NFL should have canceled her appearance.
