Speedometer ‘pinned’ at 90 in California cliff plunge that killed adopted children

Published

on

Troubling new details have emerged in the case of two white Washington women who plunged off a cliff with their adopted black children.

Jennifer Jean Hart and Sarah Margaret Hart, both 38, wore seatbelts when they plunged off the cliff, and were killed. Authorities also recovered the bodies of three of their six adopted children: Martin, 19; Abigail, 14; and Jeremiah, 14. Three other adopted children are missing: Hannah, 16; Devonte, 15; and Sierra, 12. Devonate Hart was featured in an iconic photo of protests after the Michael Brown killing, with him hugging a police officer with tears in his eyes.

Since the deaths, it’s been revealed that the children were abused, with one of the moms pleading guilty to abuse in Minnesota. Neighbors told the Oregonian that the children asked them to hide food because they were punished with starvation when their moms said they misbehaved. The children were all homeschooled, but the Harts had not filled out the appropriate forms to ensure oversight.

A search warrant uncovered by Fox 12 News in Portland, where the women were active in the music community, shows that the speedometer in their car was “pinned” at 90. That is nearly double the speed limit of 55 miles per hour. Police have previously said that there were no skid marks or signs of braking at the site of the crash.

The crash happened at an overlook just past the Juan Creek bridge in Mendocino County.

Drone footage of the scene shows that the car plunged off a cliff on the northeast side of the overlook.

The car would have had to make a very abrupt turn off the freeway and not slowed as it crossed 75 feet of gravel without braking if the incident was an accident.

President Donald Trump on Monday once again launched an attack on Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in an angry Twitter tirade.

"The 'Squad' is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart," the president wrote. "They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border...And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!"

Vogue editor Anna Wintour refuses to talk about Melania Trump so she can lavish praise on Michelle Obama

Published

Vogue editor and fashion doyenne Anna Wintour had little good to say about current First Lady Melania Trump in an interview with the Economist, choosing instead to lavish praise on Michelle Obama as the "best ambassador this country could possibly have."

In the interview, which can be heard below, Anna McElvoy wanted to talk about Melania but Wintour seemed to have no interest in the former fashion model from Slovenia who is currently the third wife of Donald Trump.

“[Melania] I think, very consciously, wanted to see herself as an ambassador for British fashion, in this case, or a transatlantic ambassador,” McElvoy asked, pointing to the first lady's recent trip to the U.K. “I mean, do you value that?”

Published

on

Disgraced former PBS host Charlie Rose and accused billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein allegedly had conversations about women whom Rose should hire and whom he would then go on to sexually harass.

New York Magazine reporter Irin Carmon has a bombshell story about Epstein's call logs that show his regular interactions with multiple powerful men during a time when prosecutors say he was running a sex trafficking ring for underage girls.

Of particular interest are his calls with Rose, who was fired by PBS in 2017 after multiple women came forward to accuse him of being a serial sexual harasser.
