Federal judge overrules lower court to keep suspected Coast Guard terrorist behind bars

Published

on

Christopher Hasson was set to be released by a local court after federal prosecutors were unable to prove a terrorism charge. However, a U.S. District Court has overruled that decision as prosecutors wade through the evidence to pinpoint charges about a possible terrorist attack.

Hasson, was arrested in February when investigators discovered an arsenal of weapons, list of targets and searches for which elected officials and Supreme Court justices were not protected by the U.S. Secret Service.

Hasson was in the Coast Guard and lived in a basement apartment in Silver Spring, Maryland when he was caught with the weapons and data. He is just one of many white supremacists that the FBI is keeping close tabs on, according to reports last week. Thus far about 850 domestic terrorists are under the watchful eye of law enforcement.

“In writings the government seized, Hasson called himself a long time white nationalist and skinhead and said he was ‘dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on earth,'” The Washington Post cited court documents. “Hasson searched the address of Supreme Court judges, bought books on ‘white identity’ and “white advocacy” and studied the manifesto of a Norwegian mass attacker who killed 77.”

Published

On Monday, The New York Times issued a mea culpa for the nature of their coverage of the allegation by advice columnist E. Jean Carroll that President Donald Trump raped her in a department store in the 1990s.

"After an article last week reported the advice columnist E. Jean Carroll's rape allegations against President Trump, some readers accused The Times of downplaying the story," wrote staff editor Laura Takenaga. "Many have written to ask us why we didn't give the allegations more attention on our website and in print ... Some questioned whether the lack of prominence showed too much deference to the president's denials, or whether it even suggested misogyny or an unwillingness to believe a victim's account."

LGBTQ pride ‘forces’ people to accept ‘a perverted and non-biblical view of sexuality’: West Virginia Republican

Published

on

West Virginia state Sen. Mike Azinger penned an angry op-ed for the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, scorning the idea of LGBTQ acceptance and warning that it is a massive plot to indoctrinate people against Christian values.

"Tolerance, in the face of the violation of the commandments of God, is no virtue at all," said Azinger, a manager of a contracting firm with a master's degree in pastoral theology. He ripped into the local newspaper for covering an LGBTQ pride event the previous Saturday, thundering that, "Sexual deviancy is going mainstream."
