Feds arrest 57 white supremacist gang members on drug trafficking charges

Published

on

Federal authorities in North Texas have 57 suspected white supremacist gang members in their custody in a drug trafficking sting — and claim four people associated with the gangs kidnapped someone and cut off their finger because they owed money.

The Associated Press reported Monday that defendants were associated with the groups Aryan Brotherhood of Texas and Dirty White Boys, and federal prosecutors have charged them with distributing methamphetamine since 2015. Nine of the members were already in police custody when federal conspiracy to charges were brought against them, and another 42 were arrested. The report noted that six other suspected members are still at large.

AP also noted that earlier this year, four of the defendants “kidnapped someone in an effort to obtain drug proceeds that they believed were owed to them,” subsequently beating them and lopping off their finger with a hatchet.

Speaking with NBC host Chuck Todd on Sunday, Cruz attempted to push what has been described as Kremlin propaganda, asserting that "there is evidence of Ukraine interference in our election because an op-ed was written criticizing Trump’s campaign rhetoric about Ukraine."

Chinese diplomats unleashed to pummel the reeling Trump administration: report

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, Chinese diplomats have been unleashed, as well as urged, to attack Donald Trump's administration and the U.S. in general via social media like Twitter -- turning the president's favorite social media platform back on him.

He’s gone so far as to slam neighborhood segregation in Washington, D.C., and assert that 'racial discrimination, gun violence, violent law enforcement are chronic diseases deeply rooted in U.S. society," Politico reports.
