    The tip was said to be "divine intervention." It was a Norwegian Bible that was more than 100 years old and had previously been in possession of the Olander family. Police discovered that Edson Benitez had lived in the apartment. When questioned about the Bible, Benitez told authorities that a friend who moved to Mexico gave it to him. However, detectives pressed Benitez when the story didn't add up. He admitted that the Bible was stolen, and fingered his friend Reinol Vergara. Vergara was a painter who worked at Olander's house and found out that the elderly man was wealthy. Benitez said he waited in a vehicle outside of Olander's home as Vergara infiltrated the house. He went in with a black duffel bag that allegedly contained duct tape and a gun, according to police. "Twenty minutes later, Benitez said Vergara returned to the car and asked him to come inside and help look for the money," ABC News reported. "Benitez said when he got inside, he saw a man with his face covered with a blanket...
    Colbert claimed that Dixon had "totally made up" the individual in her story and sarcastically added, "That totally happened." Colbert further questioned why a concerned parent would turn to a Democrat for help in the first place, discounting that eight of ten members of the state board of education are Democrats and that local partisans (e.g., on the Dearborn City Board of Education) would also have influence over the content available in schools and libraries.

    The wind and rain wasn't enough to stop one man captured on film from running across the roof of a downtown Manhattan building. An unidentified man, dressed in a suit and wearing dress shoes, is seen on top of the 23-story West Street Building, located across the street from the National September 11 Memorial. One video shows the man walking around a corner awning and taking photos. He then stops to take a phone call while pacing back and forth. Once he finished his phone call, the man starts to run across the roof's awnings until he approaches one apartment window, which he then enters the building through. Captured by Erik Ljung from a top floor at the adjacent 200 Liberty Street building, the man is seen blurred out by the rain as his clothes flap against the wind. The Gothic-style building, built in 1907 and renovated in 2003, is measured at just over 324 feet tall.  View this post on Instagram A post shared by Erik Ljung (@erik_ljung) Pictured: A man is seen on video walking on the roof...
    A Florida resident on Monday told Fox News host Charles Payne the harrowing story of how his two best friends both died after they were swept away by water last week as Hurricane Ian ravaged the area. Mike Yost of Fort Myers Beach explained to Payne, who was filling in on Your World for Neil Cavuto, how his two best friends were killed by the storm’s surge after they each got their wives to safety. He and others decided to ride out the storm after 2004’s Hurricane Charley failed to significantly flood the area. “That’s why I thought, well, we’re on the second floor,” he said. “Everybody thought, ‘Charley never made it to the top floor here.'” Yost told Payne after he witnessed the storm surge take his mailbox out, he knew Ian was a different animal. He texted a number of people and told them he thought he had made a mistake by staying behind. He took to the second floor of a home and planned to hold onto an air mattress. He said his hope was the storm...

    Looking back, I should have known from the minute his hand ‘accidentally’ brushed mine that Ed was a philanderer, both irredeemable and utterly irresistible. I can still remember the jolt caused by his touch, the electric charge that crackled constantly between us, the sheer heat of being in his presence. And more than two decades on I still kick myself for not realising sooner that Ed was a man who couldn’t, and wouldn’t, stop his eye roving. I thought of Ed this week, as I read ex-newsreader Jan Leeming’s interview in the Daily Mail in which she declared that she had known many womanisers and had concluded that you can never tame a ladies’ man. Five-times married Jan knows more than most about the subject, and said: ‘I get so angry when it’s, “What’s this harridan done that no man stays with her”? Every single one of my men has been a womaniser — every single one — and you can’t keep a man if he has wandering eyes.’ As intoxicating as my time with Ed was, I have to...
    “The Last White Man” by Mohsin Hamid (Riverhead) Anders wakes up to find he’s no longer white. After confiding in his friend, Oona, the two discover this is not an isolated case; all over town and beyond, white people are finding their skin suddenly turning dark. “The Last White Man,” Mohsin Hamid’s fifth novel, follows the experiences of Anders and Oona as their perceptions change along with their appearances. They’re ordinary people with unexceptional jobs living unremarkable lives until the unexplained darkening of white peoples’ skin turns society on its head. Reminiscent of the real, pandemic-battered world, the mysterious change spurs panicked tribalism and manic internet conspiracy theories. The sudden loss of whiteness harkens back to Hamid’s own experience as a Pakistan-born man who was seen and treated differently post-9/11, despite having lived over half his life at that point in the West. The story is told in a third-person limited point of view that flips between Anders and Oona, sometimes migrating to Oona’s mom or Anders’ dad, who become important characters aiding broader conversations by presenting outlooks...

    The parents of three kids mowed down and killed by a drunk driver have received not one but two standing ovations at the Vatican after a powerful address about forgiveness. Western Sydney couple Danny and Leila Abdallah were invited by the Pope to share their harrowing story with hundreds of parishioners at the 2022 World Meeting of Families in Rome on Saturday. Their three children Sienna, 8, Angelina, 12, Antony, 13, and niece Veronique Sakr, 11, were killed by Samuel William Davidson who was drunk and high on drugs while behind the wheel in Oatlands on February 1, 2020. Flanked by their children Liana, 12, Alex, seven, Michael, six, and 14-week-old Selina, the Abdallahs spoke to a global audience on the eve of would have been Antony's 16th birthday.

Their speech was so powerful it brought the Catholic world to their feet, including a contingent of Australians in the...
    JK Rowling has backed a young British man in a freedom of speech row after Twitter deleted his account of how he was 'castrated' during gender reassignment surgery that has prompted him to sue the NHS over the operation in a historic legal action.    The man has claimed that doctors did not warn him of the drastic outcome of the body-altering surgery which has left him infertile, incontinent, with no sensation in his crotch and feeling like a ‘sexual eunuch’. He said on Twitter: ‘The minute I woke up from surgery, I knew I had made the biggest mistake of my life.’ ‘I cannot believe they [the NHS] were allowed to do this to me. I was not even asked if I wanted to freeze my sperm, or have kids in the future.’ He does not want to be named because he is ashamed of how he looks. Instead, he tweets under the pseudonym TullipR. Campaigners say that it is the first medical negligence case over NHS transgender care in this country. The NHS trust involved has not been named. Many of his tweets...
    A woman has uncovered the shocking tale of a killer dad who bought grave plots for his entire family before murdering his two young daughters and poisoning his ex-girlfriend - after she found a picture of one of the victims in a thrift shop. Chelsey Brown, 28, from New York, often explores antique shops and online marketplaces in an attempt to find old diaries, letters, and documents - and she then tries to reunite them with the people or the descendants of the people who they used to belong to.  However, her hobby recently took a turn for the eerie when she came across a mysterious photo of a woman wearing a fur coat and hat - which was taken back in 1929 - while trawling a New York vintage store. Curious about the story behind it, she purchased the 93-year-old image and used MyHeritage to try to find out more about the woman, in the hopes of returning the picture to her living ancestors. And what she uncovered was far more shocking. It turns out, the woman in the snap...

    President Joe Biden got emotional as he paid tribute to the 10 people who were killed over the weekend in a mass shooting at a Buffalo grocery store. Biden spoke from Buffalo on Tuesday after visiting the memorial site for the victims allegedly shot dead by a racist gunman who embraced the white supremacist “Great Replacement” theory. As he spoke to the anguish of families who lost their loved ones during the attack, Biden emphasized that the nation mourns with them, saying “We remember them. We’ve been reading about them.” Biden proceeded to name the victims killed the attack, giving each a brief eulogy. The president became particularly choked up, however, when he brought up the story of 53-year-old Andre Mackniel, who died at the grocery store while he was buying a birthday cake for his 3-year-old son. It was in that moment when Biden emotionally gasped as he said “[Mackniel’s] son is celebrating a birthday, asking ‘Where is Daddy?'” Biden continued on with the rest of his eulogy — offering his sympathies for the others wounded in the attack....
    Unlike many of her predecessors, Queen Elizabeth has always been cool under pressure.  In the 1990s, however, her remarkable equilibrium was tested far more than we ever knew. According to a friend of hers, she was at her 'wits' end' when both Charles and Andrew's marriages collapsed, wondering aloud when her family, and the monarchy, would finally be given some respite. In particular, Charles and Diana's decision to separate affected the Queen so deeply that she allowed herself to stray from the ingrained habits of a lifetime. No longer did she have just one dry martini in the evenings; her staff noticed that Her Majesty's modest consumption of alcohol had noticeably increased.  In private, the Monarch, known for both her moderation and her iron grip on her emotions, was quietly signalling her distress. With two sons mired in scandal, she had much to contend with.  On the one hand, she abhorred divorce; and on the other, she was ever protective of the dignity of the Crown. So how did the Queen negotiate this turbulent period of recent royal history? Back...
    American filmmaking doesn’t get more powerful than Martin Scorsese’s boxing biopic “Raging Bull” (1980) or Steven Spielberg’s Holocaust epic “Schindler’s List” (1993). Director Barry Levinson combines both in the new film “The Survivor,” which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival where it was bought by HBO and finally drops next Wednesday timed with Yom HaShoah, Israel’s version of Holocaust Remembrance Day. Written by Justine Juel Gillmer, the film follows the true story of Polish native Harry Haft, who is forced to box against fellow captors at the Auschwitz concentration camp in a fight for survival. After the war, he moves to America as a professional light heavyweight boxer from 1948 to 1949, only to hang up his gloves to sell produce as a Brooklyn family man. Ben Foster gives a tour-de-force performance, rivaling his best work in the modern crime western “Hell or High Water” (2016). Foster is unrecognizable as an emaciated Auschwitz prisoner before trading his scrawny frame for punch-drunk pounds the way that Robert De Niro famously did in his all-timer Oscar-winning portrait of Jake LaMotta in “Raging...
    (CNN)Anoosheh Ashoori points on a computer screen to the location of a makeshift shelter in the yard of Tehran's notorious Evin prison. "I used to sit here during winter and even when it was snowing," Ashoori says in an interview with CNN's Becky Anderson. It was here that he worked hard to create a semblance of normality during an experience that was anything but ordinary. The 68-year-old British-Iranian businessman spent nearly five years at Evin on espionage charges. He was convicted of spying for Israel's Mossad intelligence agency and sentenced to 12 years, according to Iran state news agency IRNA. He insists he was wrongly convicted.

    The St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office has accused the police department of a 'serious breach of trust', saying two officers lied about an attempted carjacking of their marked police car at gunpoint. On March 19, two St. Louis (Missouri) Police Department officers, who were not identified, claimed a man tried to carjack them in their police car. The officers had responded to reported gunshots near South Tucker Boulevard and Chouteau Avenue around 3am. They said a man stepped in front of their car as they were moving, before pointing a gun through the passenger window. They also claimed he ran off without taking the car after realizing officers were inside. He was apprehended about a block away in a restaurant parking lot.  But the Circuit Attorney's Office is now saying that the man, Allen Robinson, 27, was simply crossing the street and never raised a weapon at the officers. Robinson reportedly has a rap sheet with domestic violence and first-degree property damage convictions in the local area.  The CA did not explain why the officers would lie, but said one of...
    Forget special effects, an A-list cast and a multimillion-pound budget – to make a film that'll mesmerise millions all you need is a smartphone and a passenger train, it seems.

    The family of an American citizen killed in Ukraine claims he died during a Russian bombing while en route to the hospital where his life partner was being treated for multiple sclerosis.  Jimmy Hill, 68, was reported dead Thursday after a bomb exploded in the city of Chernihiv, where his partner, Irina Teslenko, has been receiving care at a regional hospital since December. In an interview from Pittsburgh Saturday, Jimmy's sister, Katya Hill, called her brother's relationship with Irina a 'beautiful love story, but unfortunately it has a tragic ending'. 'Certainly, my brother sacrificed his life for her,' Katya said, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. He had ventured into the city with a friend in search of buses intended help residents flee but allegedly turned back when he saw 1,000 people in line for the service. 'My brother decided to turn back, go back to the hospital, to Irina's side, and that's when the bomb hit,' the grieving sister added.  Initial reports claimed Jimmy was one of 10 people who were gunned down by Russian soldiers while lining up to...
    It is a story of one man’s heroic struggle against the elements and often viewed as a metaphor for life itself. But Ernest Hemingway’s classic novel The Old Man And The Sea is the latest victim of today’s woke standards, with students warned that it contains ‘graphic fishing scenes’. Successive TV and film adaptations of the 1952 classic have been awarded U and PG certificates, suitable for children, but a content warning has been issued to History and Literature students at the University of the Highlands and Islands in Scotland, an area renowned for its fishing industry. Mary Dearborn, the author of Ernest Hemingway, A Biography, said: ‘This is nonsense. It blows my mind to think students might be encouraged to steer clear of the book.

    A MAN wildly claims he was shown terrifying visions of the Covid outbreak and a bloody global war when he was allegedly abducted by aliens in one of the most infamous close encounters of all time. Calvin Parker, who says he saw images of people with their skin melting off as nations fought against each other, has kept his visions secret for almost 50 years but has now decided to go public as he fears they may be coming true. 8Calvin Parker believes he was abducted by aliens in 1977 with his pal Charlie HicksonCredit: Philip Mantle 8An artist's impression of the 'aliens' which the men said had lobster-like claws and carrot-like earsCredit: Alberto Forgione/Philip Mantle 'A curse' Describing them as a "curse", Calvin claims he was shown terrible events from mankind's past, present and future after being "taken" on board a UFO in 1973. Calvin, then aged 19, was fishing on the banks of the Pascagoula River, in Mississippi, with his pal Charlie Hickson when they allege a UFO landed nearby and they were grabbed by strange creatures...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Holocaust Remembrance Day is being marked around the world 77 years after Soviet forces liberated Auschwitz, the largest Nazi death camp. Eyewitness News spoke with a Philadelphia man whose grandfather survived Auschwitz and why it’s so important to share his grandfather’s story. When Germany invaded Poland in 1939, 15-year old David Wisnia came home one day to find his father, mother and baby brother had all been killed by the Nazis. His older brother ran away and tried to escape, but he too was killed.

    A scorned woman sought the ultimate revenge on her 'cheating' boyfriend by throwing his prized television and PlayStation 5 out of their third-story window after allegedly learning that he had unfaithful to her.     The unnamed woman, who lives in Atlanta, Georgia, was caught on camera hurling her partner's possessions down onto the street by one of their neighbors - Nora Fitzgerald - who then shared the footage on TikTok, where it has since gone viral.    According to Nora, the woman - whose identity is unknown - decided to take all of her boyfriend's valuables, including his beloved PS5 and his enormous flat-screen TV, and chuck them out of the window of her third story apartment after she discovered his infidelity, smashing them in the process.  In the clip, various items could be seen flying out of the apartment and tumbling to the parking lot below, where a pile of broken glass already sat.

    A WOMAN has hilariously trolled herself as someone who is awful at meeting romantic partners. She said her dating life is so unlucky that one guy told her she had convinced him to stop dating altogether – and that’s far from her worst story. 3A woman has called herself out for having such an unfortunate dating lifeCredit: TikTok / @xotigress 3She claimed someone told her she is the reason they no longer want to date anyoneCredit: TikTok / @xotigress The woman, who goes by @xotigress on TikTok, revealed she decided to vent about her dating mishaps online to get “closure” from the “trauma” she experienced throughout her romantic endeavors.  Rather than explaining each story, the woman listed some of her dating fail examples over a video of herself looking quite entertained.  In one text blurb, she revealed one love interest told her he deleted all of his dating applications not because he was looking to get serious with her, but because she made him “realize dating was a serious waste of his time.” While that is an unfortunate story, others...
    After Southern California resident Eduardo Mena was arrested in August 2021 and found with 300 election ballots in his possession, right-wing media were quick to make election fraud claims. But according to Sgt. Mark Ponegalek of the Torrance Police Department, there is no evidence that Mena had election fraud in mind — as those ballots were among the many allegedly stolen items in his possession. Mena was arrested on August 16, 2021, and SFGate reporter Eric Ting notes that the following night, the Torrance Police Department posted details of his arrest on Facebook. The Facebook post read, “Last night, officers responded to a male subject passed out in a vehicle in the 7-11 parking lot. Officers learned he was a felon & located Xanax pills on him. Officers continued their investigation and discovered a loaded firearm, methamphetamine, thousands of pieces of mail, a scale & multiple CA drivers licenses and credit cards in other individuals’ names.” The “thousands of pieces of mail” part is important, as the ballots were only part of the mail the Torrance Police suspected Mena...
    The cute little girl with a pudding bowl haircut sitting on her mother’s knee is Brigitte Trogneux.  Her family are renowned chocolatiers and confectioners in the Amiens region of northern France where the upmarket Trogneux brand is as well-known as, say, Thorntons is in Britain. But the family — or rather the youngster in the photograph — has another, much greater claim, to fame today. She grew up to be Brigitte Macron, France’s first lady, wife of President Emmanuel Macron. Trogneux is her maiden name. The black-and-white Trogneux family portrait, featuring her parents and siblings, was taken back in the 1950s. The claim initially went unnoticed when the small monthly publication went to press with the results of its so-called ‘three-year investigation’ into Mrs Macron in September Could anyone, least of all Brigitte herself, have imagined that more than half-a-century on it would be used in a smear campaign to destroy her by the far-Right?  Even by their poisonous standards the latest conspiracy theory aimed at undermining Mrs Macron in the run-up to the French presidential election in April, when her...
    R.A. The Rugged Man joined “Vince and Jason Save The Nation” Wednesday to discuss a recent spat on Tim Pool’s podcast. R.A. The Rugged Man joined Pool’s podcast on Dec. 23, with the former accusing Pool of “promoting Derek Chauvin” and allegedly being “anti-Black.” “Lives have been lost by police and you were there bootlicking the fucking cops,” R.A. The Rugged Man reportedly said to Pool before the two men fought about allegations of racism. Things quickly became heated, with the conversation devolving into a shouting match before the two men hugged it out. Both later apologized for their actions in a tweet.

    So easy to save a life. This series documents stories from the Herman Cain Awards subreddit, tracking the COVID mis- and disinformation on Facebook that is leading to so many deaths. Today’s cautionary tale almost got lucky. At the very beginning, we had no idea how COVID spread. It really was a “do everything you can to sterilize everything around you and hope for the best” mentality. We did know the virus was terribly deadly, and hospitals in China were being overrun by the ill. There was plenty of reason to be worried. Would’ve been a good time for Trump to be an actual leader and help people understand how to best protect themselves. Instead, he could only think about how to protect himself.  I’m more scared of being eaten by a shark than I am of catching COVID, particularly since I’m triple vaxxed. But that doesn’t mean I stop being afraid of COVID. Shit doesn’t have to be so binary.  Other things that I fear more than COVID:  1) Being buried alive.  2) Losing the 2024 presidential election. 3) Tornadoes. ...
    Spider-Man: No Way Home is about to make fools out of every fake entertainment “journalist” who’s blamed all these woketard flops on the China Flu pandemic. Not only was my 4 p.m. screening packed to the rafters, not only did the audience explode into applause at least a half-dozen times (word of mouth is going to propel this sucker into outer space), but after it was over, the theater lobby was packed, unlike anything I’ve seen since Avengers: Endgame. Newsflash: If you make a decent movie that seeks to entertain and move — instead of lecture and shame — we will show up. Spider-Man: No Way Home does precisely that. You will not only have a great time at the movies again, but there’s no gay, transsexual, or racial nonsense. This movie is about only one thing: Delivering the goods. Watch below:  No Way Home picks up where 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home left off. Thanks to Mysterio, the world now knows that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. In our media-saturated climate, this immediately makes life impossible, not only for...
    A Baltimore, Maryland, jury convicted a man of first-degree murder Thursday in the 2018 stabbing of his wife that he blamed on a panhandler. Jurors deliberated about five hours over two days before convicting Keith Smith, 55, of Aberdeen, Maryland, of murdering his wife, Jacquelyn Smith, The Baltimore Sun reported. He was also convicted of a weapons charge. Keith Smith told police his wife, an engineer at an Army facility, was knifed by a man after handing $10 to a female panhandler who appeared to be holding a baby. Smith’s version of his wife’s slaying drew national attention, as he and his daughter, Valeria, gave tearful interviews. Oprah Winfrey, once a newscaster in Baltimore, tweeted that the tragic case would make her reconsider handing out cash to panhandlers. But the story fell apart. Investigators reviewed footage from surveillance cameras along the Smiths’ supposed route that night. “The defendant’s vehicle and panhandlers are nowhere to be found,” Assistant State’s Attorney Shaundria Hanna told jurors. “There’s no panhandlers; it was all made up.” Keith Smith and his daughter were arrested in March...
    Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images Victoria Pedretti, the star of Netflix’s You, has exited the upcoming film adaption of Alice Sebold’s Lucky after the man accused of raping the author had his conviction overturned. New York State Supreme Court Justice Gordon Cuffy exonerated Anthony Broadwater on Nov. 22 after he was wrongfully accused of the 1981 rape of The Lovely Bones author. Pedretti was set to star in Lucky, based on Sebold’s 1999 memoir of the same name, which details the author’s rape while she was a freshman at Syracuse University. Pedretti left the production following the exoneration, according to Variety.  Executive producer Timothy Mucciante had previously left the production in June after he began to question the story, as he found “discrepancies between the memoir and the script,” according to the New York Times.  “I started having some doubts, not about the story that Alice told about her assault, which was tragic, but the second part of her book about the trial, which didn’t hang together,” Mucciante told the Times. He even hired a private investigator, Dan Myers, who found evidence pointing to Broadwater’s innocence and...

    By RUSS BYNUM BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — The man who fatally shot Ahmaud Arbery testified Wednesday that he feared the 25-year-old Black man was armed with a gun when he encountered Arbery “creeping” outside an unfinished house in his Georgia neighborhood 12 days before the shooting. Travis McMichael’s testimony came as defense attorneys in the murder trial for the three white men charged with chasing and killing Arbery opened their case by building on arguments that their clients were lawfully trying to stop burglaries in their neighborhood. “I want to give my side of the story,” McMichael, 35, said. He said he first ran into Arbery at the house under construction on Feb. 11, 2020. McMichael said he was driving when he saw a man “lurking” and “creeping” outside the home. He turned his vehicle to point his headlights on Arbery, he said, and the man tried to hide behind a portable toilet at the construction site. “He comes out and pulls up his shirt, and goes to reach in his pocket or waistband area,” McMichael said. “It freaked me...
