Chicago’s mayor, Brandon Johnson, and other local officials have come under immense scrutiny over the city’s disastrous “sanctuary city” status in the wake of Joe Biden’s reversal of successful Trump policies on the border, such as “remain in Mexico.”
Cosmopolitan was always the trashiest of the ladies’ magazines one could pick up at your local Shop-Rite check-out aisle, but the dying of print and the squeeze put upon whatever shopping lane business they were still doing by self-checkout apparently has the editors over at Cosmo pretty desperate these days.
The former Democrat Mayor of College Park, Maryland, Patrick Wojahn, has been handed a 30-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to charges related to the possession and distribution of child sexual abuse material.

A shocking video shows the moment a Ukrainian HIMARS missile struck a building in occupied Ukraine and killed a singer and 25 Russian soldiers celebrating a holiday.
Performer Polina Menshikh, 40, could be seen singing on stage with a guitar seconds before a loud bang was heard and the ceiling began caving in. The footage, widely shared on the Telegram social media channel, then goes dark and shouting can heard.
The Russian state news agency TASS confirmed Ms Menshikh died in the explosion on Sunday in the village of Kumachovo in Russian-occupied Donetsk. Newsweek reported that 25 Russian soldiers had also been killed in the attack using the US-supplied M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS).
The Federal Communications Commission has voted for a Biden administration plan to promote “equity and diversity” online that some critics are calling a “takeover of the Internet.”
The FCC on Wednesday voted 3-2 for a plan that would give the federal government complete authority over the Internet.
The plan is being sold as a means to prevent digital discrimination and ensure equitable access to broadband internet in the United States. The proposal, however, grants broad access to and regulatory control over all parts of the Internet that many justifiably believe will lead to government abuse.
Former President Donald Trump has filed for a new trial in his civil fraud case, arguing that the judge who will decide it is biased against him.
In a motion filed, Trump’s lawyers said, “The evidence of apparent and actual bias is tangible and overwhelming.”
The motion talks about Judge Arthur Engoron and his law clerk. Trump’s lawyers and the former president have complained many times about this person, which led to the judge ordering everyone to keep quiet, CNN reported.
Engoron has already made it clear that he doesn’t want to hear the motion. At first, he told Trump’s lawyer not to file it, but then he told him that he could file it in writing.
“In this case, there is a lot of tangible evidence of real and apparent bias. This evidence, along with a departure from normal court procedures that have never been seen before, has tainted these proceedings, and a mistrial is necessary,” Trump’s lawyers wrote in the motion.
After the unmitigated disaster of the Summer Counteroffensive in the ground, and against the background of his covert struggle against Commander in Chief Valery Zaluzhny, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has launched a ‘PR counteroffensive’ of sorts.
The wartime leader is trying to put up a brave face, convince the world’s public opinion that he is control of things, and guarantee a continuation of the military and humanitarian support for his country.
In a new interview, Zelensky has ‘shrugged off’ what he called ‘repeated Russian attempts to assassinate him’, and assured the world that the will of Ukraine to defeat Vladimir Putin’s Russia remained strong. ‘We are ready to stand further’.
Congressional investigators have obtained hours of video footage from undercover officers who were dispatched by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department to the U.S. Capitol to conduct electronic surveillance during the Jan. 6 riot, a critical new piece of evidence that could help lawmakers fashion long-delayed security reforms.
The footage reviewed by Just the News ranges from the mundane -- such as chronicling moments when Capitol Police officers are impacted by tear gas fired into the crowd – to more provocative scenes that appear to show plainclothes MPD officers exhorting rioters to climb scaffolding near the Capitol or talking about being undercover with liberal fascist protesters in a crowd.
“Well, we go undercover as Antifa in the crowd,” one officer that congressional investigators believe is a member of the MPD electronic surveillance unit is captured on video saying.
