Easter will mark a tragic reminder for Luz Maldonado and her family. Twelve years ago, the holiday was the last time anyone saw her first-born child alive. Camden resident Stephanie Rosado, then 26, was last seen by her roommate on Easter, which fell on April 12 in 2009, authorities said. “She took a backpack, he thought she was going to see her son,” Lt. Paul Audino of the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit said in a release Friday. “She walked out the door, she got into a vehicle with an unknown person and that’s the last time she was seen alive.” Maldonado said she briefly ...
'CRIME OF THE CENTURY!' Trump issues furious statements lashing out at Pence and Mitch McConnell for his election loss
On Saturday, former President Donald Trump issued a pair of statements doubling down on the "big lie" that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him — and specifically going after former Vice President Mike Pence and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for not doing more to help him stay in office.
"As our Country is being destroyed, both inside and out, the Presidential Election of 2020 will go down as THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY!" wrote Trump in his first statement, following up with a second that said, "The polls were a joke. I won States in a landslide that I was predicted to lose days before the election," Trump added. "Other states had me purposely so far down that it would force people, even fans, to say "Let's stay home Darling. We love our President, but he can't win." ... It's called SUPPRESSION POLLING and it should be illegal."
"The 2020 Presidential Election was, by far, the greatest Election Fraud in the history," continued Trump. "Had Mike Pence had the courage to send the Electoral College vote back to the states for recertification, and had Mitch McConnell fought for us instead of being the weak and pathetic leader he is, we would right now have a Republican President who would be VETOING the horrific Socialistic Bills that are rapidly going through Congress, including Open Borders, High Taxes, Massive Regulations, and so much else!"

'That didn't age well': Right-wingers mocked for celebrating fake news that Don Lemon is leaving CNN
On Friday night, CNN late-night anchor Don Lemon shocked viewers with the abrupt message that this would be the last edition of "CNN Tonight with Don Lemon," leading many to speculate that he was leaving CNN. However, it turned out CNN is just rebranding his show under the new name "Don Lemon Tonight."
Hey everyone. Not what you think. I’m not leaving CNN. Tune in for the handoff on Monday at 10pE and I’ll explain. https://t.co/oOwDferY2i— Don Lemon (@Don Lemon)1621048470.0
But several conservative commentators jumped the gun and took to social media to gloat about the supposed departure of Lemon, a Black and openly gay journalist who has gone after right-wing extremism.
Bye Don Lemon. Your show wasn't good and you often acted in bad faith. However... ...that's actually all I have. Goodbye.— (((Jason Rantz))) on KTTH Radio (@(((Jason Rantz))) on KTTH Radio)1621048973.0

According to KSEE, a man associated with a white supremacist gang in Fresno, California has been charged with murder.
"40-year-old Brandon Engelman from Coarsegold is charged with shooting and killing 56-year-old Pacer Hampton, of Fresno, last month. It was the county's first homicide," reported AJ Kato. "On April 13, Hampton was found in his crashed car on Olive Avenue. He had been shot to death. Detectives received surveillance video from neighbors and identified a white Chevrolet Tahoe as a vehicle of interest. Once the photo was released to the public, Mims said tips pointed them to Engelman."
Engelman, who was previously convicted for crimes including home invasion and burglary, is linked to the Fresnecks, a local white supremacist street gang in the area. Its members have previously faced prosecution in an operation that seized illegal guns and drugs.
"We do know that this was not a random shooting. Hampton was specifically targeted," said Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims. Fresno County District Attorney Lisa Smittcamp said of the arrest, "We have taken a very dangerous man who was associated with the white supremacist groups of gangs here in Fresno off the streets."
The FBI has warned that white supremacist attacks, including domestic terrorism, are on the rise in the United States.
