Ohio’s capital city has launched a defense fund for illegal immigrants facing deportation and thousands of taxpayer dollars will go to the local chapter of a terrorist front group that promotes itself as a Muslim civil rights organization. The pot of cash is known as Columbus Families Together Fund and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a national organization that serves as the U.S. front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, will be among the recipients. CAIR was founded in 1994 by three Middle Eastern extremists (Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad, and Rafeeq Jaber) who ran the American propaganda wing of Hamas, known then as the Islamic Association for Palestine. In 2008 CAIR was a co-conspirator in a federal terror-finance case involving the Hamas front group Holy Land Foun

A small, recently discovered asteroid -- or perhaps a comet -- appears to have originated from outside the solar system, coming from somewhere else in our galaxy. If so, it would be the first "interstellar object" to be observed and confirmed by astronomers. This unusual object – for now designated A/2017 U1 – is less than a quarter-mile (400 meters) in diameter and is moving remarkably fast. Astronomers are urgently working to point telescopes around the world and in space at this notable object. Once these data are obtained and analyzed, astronomers may know more about the origin and possibly composition of the object. A/2017 U1 was discovered Oct. 19 by the University of Hawaii's Pan-STARRS 1 telescope on Haleakala, Hawaii, during the course of its nightly search for near-Earth ob
At least four people were injured on the West Side Highway in New York City after they were apparently struck by a truck.

He added that multiple people injured, possibly struck by a vehicle and also possibly shot. Preliminary reports from city officials said they believe this started as a dispute between two drivers with shots fired. The sprawling crime scene runs several blocks. A suspect, who may have been shot by police, is in custody. A wi...

In 2017, two of the largest epidemics of cryptographers have already been recorded - we are talking about the notoriously sensational WannaCry and ExPetr (also Petya and NotPetya at the same time) - and now it looks like the third one is starting. This time the cryptographer is called Bad Rabbit - at least this name is written on the page in the darknet, on which its creators send for clarifying the details. So far, several Russian media have been affected by this encryptor, including Interfax and Fontanka . Also about the hacker attack - possibly connected with the same Bad Rabbit, - the airport of Odessa informs. For the decryption of files, attackers require 0.05 bitokoya, which is at the current rate approximately equivalent to 283 dollars or 15 700 rubles. The details of
The mother lode of all conspiracies is the New World Order. In essence, it is a high-level, multi-generational plan to render all sovereign national governments subservient to an unelected, supranational, authoritarian world government. In this scheme, the people of planet earth will be micromanaged with strict social, technological and financial controls. It is the total consolidation of global power into the hands of a ruthless, minority elite who aim to rape the planet and enslave the human race. They can’t do it alone, though, they need your help. They need witting and unwitting minions to set the brush fires of revolutionary change in our towns and cities. They need pawns to agitate and disrupt the relative peace, and to upend the status quo with turmoil. They need sensel
The National Archives has until next Thursday to disclose the remaining files related to Kennedy’s 1963 assassination. Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 21, 2017 But Trump could have blocked the release on the grounds that making the material public would harm intelligence, law enforcement, military operations or foreign relations. The documents include more than 3,000 that have never been seen by the public and more than 30,000 that have been previously released, but with redactions. This leads me to believe that the possibility of these documents not being redacted is strong. Also noting it's 33,000 pages. According to the Act, all records

Facebook is launching a new feature to bridge the gap between social media and journalism. This is a direct result of the work we’re doing through the Facebook Journalism Project. We’re listening to news publishers all over the world to better understand their needs and goals, and collaborating more closely on the development of new products from the beginning of the process. Said the Facebook blog. As a response to accusations it spreads fake news, the social media giant will begin a subscription tool for mobile users. According to Facebook, users will have limited access to articles from certain news organizations. Once they reach their limit users will be prompted to the publisher’s site to pay for a subscription. The following list of media platforms to be available for limited
