New Haven County resident Ahmad Khalil Elshazly, of West Haven, pleaded guilty Wednesday, Nov. 30, to attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization, United States Attorney Vanessa Roberts Avery announced.

    MSNBC’s Al Sharpton deemed Donald Trump’s statements on his recent meeting with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes “nonsensical,” arguing on Sunday there is no way the former president would not know Fuentes was coming to his dinner. West, now going by Ye, revealed he recently met with Trump and said he brought along white nationalist Nick Fuentes. Ye claimed Trump praised Fuentes, and the notorious racist confirmed he spoke to Trump, a “hero” of his. Ye also said he asked Trump to be his vice president in 2024, while Trump claimed it was an “uneventful” dinner and he does not know Fuentes. Sharpton joined Jonathan Capehart on Sunday and accused the president of attempting a “Michael Jackson moonwalk” to avoid controversy. Sharpton cited his own meetings with former President Barack Obama to argue it would be impossible for Trump to have the level of ignorance about Fuentes that he is claiming to have. “Donald Trump is a former president. He still has Secret Service. The Secret Service screens who visits the former president,” Sharpton said. “When I’ve been around Barack...

    A man looking for a 'hot, single mum' has been ridiculed online after photos of the 'creepy' note he wrote for trick or treaters went viral. 'Don't care how much candy you take, but if you have a hot, single mom leave her number, love your future dad,' the man wrote in his awkward attempt to find love.

Darrell Brooks, 40, was convicted on Wednesday of six intentional homicide charges for killing six people. He was also convicted on 70 other counts including 61 counts first-degree recklessly endangering safety in the horrific massacre.

    Getty Detroit Pistons forward Bojan Bogdanovic reacts during a bout with the Orlando Magic. We’re now four games into the 2022-23 NBA season and, based on what we’ve seen so far, the Miami Heat might want to think about changing their name to the Hot Mess. The team currently sits at 1-3 on the year with issues abounding on both sides of the ball. And while Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, Jimmy Butler and other have been talking tough about the defensive shortfall, one has to believe that the club will get things back on track there. After all, this is essentially the same roster that conceded just 108.4 points per 100 possessions last season, the fourth-best mark league-wide. The team’s offense, on the other hand, continues to be problematic. In particular, Miami’s three-point attack has disappointed, much as it did during postseason play. So far this season, the Heat are only attempting 29.5 triples a night (25th most league-wide) and converting them at the paltry rate of 33.1% (21st best). Should the Heat look to the trade market...

    Catholics must “stay firm in the truth,” as those who have embraced an LGBTQ agenda are in the midst of a “hostile takeover” of the Catholic Church, warned German Cardinal Gerhard Müller in interviews conducted over the past week with both EWTN’s The World Over and LifeSiteNews. Müller, the former head of the Vatican’s highest doctrinal office, is voicing his significant concerns about the dangers to the Church brought on during Pope Francis’ Synod on Synodality, a process that involves collecting the views of lay Catholics in every diocese around the world prior to the Synod of Bishops in Rome in October 2023. Catholic journalist Phil Lawler provides a thorough description of which Catholics may have participated in these diocesan conversations leading up to the Synod of Bishops here. Müller told LifeSiteNews’ Jim Hale he condemns the LGBTQ activist agenda, including the promotion of the “criminal idea” of the “castration of boys” that continues to push itself into the Catholic Church. He referred to these transgender procedures as an “abuse of the young children,” of “minors.” Müller said that...

    Tennessee Congressman John Rose (R-TN-06) recently introduced a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that would “stop the government from warrantless surveillance of the American people,” according to a press release by Rose’s office. H.R.9159, or the Bank Privacy Reform Act, would “reform the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 by repealing requirements for financial institutions to report customers’ financial information, including transaction history, to government agencies without a warrant,” according to Rose. As the first piece of federal legislation to stop money laundering, the Bank Secrecy Act was enacted in 1970 by Congress, according to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). As part of the Bank Secrecy Act, businesses must keep records and files that can be useful in criminal, tax, and regulatory matters. In addition to identifying, detecting, and deterring money laundering, law enforcement agencies both domestically and internationally heavily use the documents businesses file under BSA requirements. These documents can be used for criminal enterprise, terrorism, tax evasion, and other illegal activity, the IRS notes. Rose’s legislation retains sections of the Bank Secrecy Act that mandate financial institutions...

    A judge sentenced a 43-year-old Hayward man to a decade in prison for attempts to help get and move cocaine by smuggling it through San Francisco International Airport, the U.S. Justice Department said. According to a statement, Lemack Bellot was convicted earlier this year after a week-long trial where government representatives presented evidence that he tried to help smuggle items he thought were cocaine through the airport in May and in November of 2018. As it turned out, Bellot had been talking with a confidential source who worked for the Drug Enforcement Administration and posed as an Atlanta-based drug dealer. As previously reported by this news organization, the two met several times at Fogline Sports Bar and Grill in Hayward, a bar owned by Bellot that got its name after an appearance on “Bar Rescue,” a reality TV show which gives makeovers to struggling bars. Before, the bar had been called Russell City Sports Bar and Grill. The source sought to help the DEA investigate reports that Bellot had paid workers to let drugs through airport security. On six occasions over the...
    A 57-year-old man was convicted of attempting to traffic and kidnap two women on Long Island. Andrew Frey, of Coram, pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and obstruction of justice on Tuesday, Sept. 27, according to Breon Peace, United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York. The guilty plea follows his conviction on Tuesday, Sept. 20, by a federal jury on charges for the attempted sex trafficking and attempted kidnapping of two victims, Peace reported.  “Frey targeted and used violence against vulnerable members of our society seeking to exploit them for his own sexual gratification,” Peace said. “Fortunately, the young women whom the defendant sought to victimize were able to escape. Today’s guilty plea, and the jury’s verdict, make clear there was no escape from justice for this dangerous defendant.” In October 2018, Frey lured a sex worker into his car in Mastic and threatened her life after she refused to go to a secluded location on the beach with him, the US Attorney's Office said.

    Earlier this month, Francis cut off his GPS ankle bracelet and fled from his San Diego home. According to Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Omar Castillo, when law enforcement arrived nearly seven hours after the monitor was removed, no security guards were present. Castillo stated that neighbors reported seeing moving trucks at the residence one or two days prior to Francis' escape. Authorities issued a red notice and offered a $40,000 reward for his arrest. Francis had a stopover in Cuba on his way to Mexico, and from there, he escaped to Venezuela, Interpol Venezuela Director General Carlos Garate Rondon said in a statement on Instagram.

    Matt Eberflus reinforced the obvious Wednesday afternoon before the Chicago Bears went back to work on the practice field at Halas Hall. The offense needs to achieve balance with play distribution if it’s going to have any chance to get rolling. “I don’t think that’s really a force issue,” the coach said. “That’s what we need to have. We need to have balance in your offense, in the run/pass calls, and we’ll get that.” The Bears attempted only 11 passes Sunday in a 27-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers, only the second time since the beginning of the Mike Ditka era in 1982 the team put the ball in the air less than 13 times. An offense that had a critical lack of explosive plays in 2021 has picked up where it left, and while the sample size is small, the start does not paint a picture of progress. Here’s where the Bears offense ranks after two games: Plays: 31st Yards: 32nd Yards per play: 29th Third down: 27th Scoring: T-26th Passing yards: 32nd Yards per passing attempt:...
