Stepson shot KKK chief Frank Ancona in the head – and wife helped dump the body in the river: police

Published

KKK leader Frank Ancona, who enjoyed a surge of media attention after pledging to bring the Ku Klux Klan to Ferguson, Missouri, was shot dead Thursday. Now, police have charged his stepson and wife with murder, reports the St. Louis Dispatch.

According to the St. Francois County Sheriff’s office, 24-year-old Paul Edward Jinkerson Jr shot his stepfather on Thursday while he slept. He and Ancona’s wife then allegedly put his body in a car and disposed of it in the woods.

In a statement posted to Facebook Monday, his son Frank Ancona gave his take on what happened when he discovered his father was missing.

“I worked my ass of since I came home from work on Thursday when they told me my father hasn’t been heard from since later Wednesday night. I went to my dads house with the police, I questioned Malissa and PJ, I pushed and pushed for everything and anything that would find my father.” He thanked the Sheriff’s department for their work, and also claimed that his father’s involvement in the KKK was preventing him from raising money, presumably for his father’s funeral.

“The GO FUND ME PAGE I made has been shut down by them for my dad being in an organization,” he wrote. 

Police haven’t publicly presented a motive.

A lawyer who represented Jinkerson on minor drug charges questioned the story. “I don’t believe it for a second that he did it,” the lawyer told the paper.

The website of the KKK branch Ancona claimed to lead asks visitors to join the group to fight for the future of whites.

“Our children, our race, and our Nation have no future unless we unite and organize White Christian Patriots. Join The  Ku Klux Klan.”

But the website shows the group is committed to more than just white supremacy—it also exploits concerns about protests against police brutality.

“It’s time for us as Citizens to show our law enforcement officers that we appreciate the job they do and also be vigilant. We should be prepared to come to their defense in the event we witness any attacks against them going on.”

GOP appointees considered disloyal to Trump won’t be spared as president’s new hatchet-man begins purge: report

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, longtime government employees who landed their jobs because of their Republican bonafides are now coming to work each day with the threat of dismissal hanging over their heads if it is believed they are are not totally on board with Donald Trump policies.

Following a report that Johnny McEntee, a 29-year-old loyalist just installed to take over the Office of Presidential Personnel, is instructing "departments to search for people not devoted to the president so they can be removed," the Times notes that just because a staffer is a Republican in good standing doesn't mean that won't be booted.

Here is why these Nevadans are betting on Sanders

Published

on

LAS VEGAS — Any doubts that Nevadans wouldn't show up for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were quickly squashed by the amount of people lined up to get into his Friday night rally in Las Vegas on the eve of the Nevada caucus: an estimated 2,020, according to his campaign. One would have been forgiven for assuming the crowd spilling out the main entrance and down the street had lined up to get into one of the city's hottest shows, not a "Get Out the Vote" event. Despite stereotypes that Sanders only draws support from the young (and mostly white), the crowd was visibly diverse in age, ethnicity and race. And anyone who didn't arrive already wearing the requisite Bernie gear had plenty of opportunities to buy some as they waited to enter the venue.

Roger Stone’s dream of booting judge for sentencing comments brutally crushed by ex-US Attorney: ‘He’s met his match’

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance crushed any hopes former Donald Trump associate Roger Stone might have that his prison sentence will be voided due to comments made by the presiding judge in his federal trial.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Vance left no doubt Stone's latest legal gambit will collapse just like his previous attempts to squirm out of his trial did.

"Stone's legal team says that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's assertion that the jurors served with integrity shows bias," host Witt stated. "Do you buy that argument and legally would that be enough to get the judge dismissed from the case?"
