    The University of Southern Maine apologized Wednesday for the “rogue behavior” of a retired professor who offered credit for participating in a protest against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, announcing that she has since been barred from teaching at the university. Susan Feiner, who retired in September but continued to teach some classes, offered students one credit for taking a pop-up course called “Engaged Citizenship,” which would bus students to Washington to participate in a protest urging Republican Sen. Susan Collins to oppose confirming then-Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
  • Audio Offers Gruesome Details of Jamal Khashoggi Killing, Turkish Official Says

    ISTANBUL — His killers were waiting when Jamal Khashoggi walked into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago. They severed his fingers and later beheaded and dismembered him, according to details from audio recordings described by a senior Turkish official on Wednesday. Mr. Khashoggi was dead within minutes, and within two hours the killers were gone, the recordings suggested. The leaking of such details, on the same day Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was visiting Turkey, reflected an escalation of pressure by the Turkish government on Saudi Arabia and the United States for answers on the fate of Mr....

    The new movie about Kermit Gosnell, the notorious Philadelphia late-term abortionist eventually convicted in the deaths of three infants, made it into the Top 10 films at the box office this past weekend--an impressive feat for a crowd-funded film. But you won’t hear the mainstream media talking about it. “We were [No. 10] on Friday and Saturday, but slipped back to 12 on Sunday,” Phelim McAleer, who co-produced the film with his wife, Ann McElhinney, told The Daily Signal. “We are the No. 1 independent movie of the weekend and [No. 5] per screen average across the U.S.” “This has...

    The Minnesota Democratic Party has suspended a spokesman for calling for violence against Republicans even as two GOP candidates have been assaulted in suspected politically motivated attacks. The Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party has suspended communications staffer William Davis for one week without pay after making a Facebook post joking that Democrats would "bring [Republicans] to the guillotine" on Nov. 7, the day after the midterm elections. Minnesota Republican Party chairman Jennifer Carnahan said the suspension was not enough, calling for his immediate firing in the aftermath of separate attacks against Republican candidates. She said she has been subjected to numerous death threats...

    An 18-year-old man has been arrested in Brooklyn after surveillance video showed him attacking an Orthodox Jewish man with a tree branch on Monday afternoon. The footage shows the 26-year-old victim, dressed in a black suit and hat, crossing Empire Boulevard at Albany Avenue in the Crown Heights neighbourhood when he is confronted by the suspect, identified as Shervy Taylor. The younger man, dressed in a white T-shirt and dark-colored jeans, chases the Jewish man across the intersection while brandishing a large tree limb.

    A Treasury Department employee has been charged with leaking confidential banking reports of suspects charged in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Federal prosecutors say Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards is set to appear in court Wednesday in Virginia. The 40-year-old Edwards is a senior official at the department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. She’s accused of leaking the material to a journalist — who’s not named in court papers. Prosecutors say reports on Paul Manafort, Richard Gates and Maria Butina were among those leaked. …

    The University of Mississippi has condemned a tweet by a faculty member that called on activists to abandon civility and harass Republican senators in public. “Don’t just interrupt a Senator’s meal, y’all,” James Thomas, an assistant professor of sociology, tweeted from his @Insurgent_Prof account on Oct. 6, the day Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn into the Supreme Court. “Put your whole damn fingers in their salads,” he wrote. “Take their apps and distribute them to the other diners. Bring boxes and take their food home with you on the way out. They don’t deserve your civility.”

    That was quick. President Trump's vow to cut off all aid to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador has gotten the attention of at least some of those countries' elites, who are moving to stop the caravan. According to Reuters: WASHINGTON/ESQUIPULAS, Guatemala (Reuters) – The organizer of a migrant caravan from Honduras was detained in Guatemala on Tuesday as the U.S. government threatened to withdraw aid from both countries and El Salvador if the flow of migrants north to the United States was not stopped. Apparently, they believe him. Someone must have been on the phone with the Palestinian Authority. An...

    A descendant of Pocahontas, the 17th-century Powhatan princess, said Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) needs to apologize for claiming to be Native American for political gain. Appearing on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Debbie White Dove Porreco said she was glad the Massachusetts Democrat finally took the DNA test, which she urged her to do back in May. "It did prove that she wasn't the Cherokee Indian that she was claiming to be for so long," Porreco said on the program Tuesday. "I think she's guilty of claiming she's an American Indian but has no proof -- and then [is] using it for...

    FULL HEADLINE: "Children's bodies are everywhere': EIGHTEEN people are killed in Crimean school massacre after student walks into canteen and opens fire - as video shows teenagers screaming and fleeing gunshots." A student killed eighteen people and injured at least 40 in a gun rampage at his school in Crimea today. Vladislav Roslyakov, 18, stalked his college halls with a rifle, shooting 17 dead and then killing himself in the school library. The teenager, who is thought to have obtained his gun with a hunting licence, also set off a homemade nail-bomb in the canteen which blew out the windows...

    Veteran Morning Joe viewers were surely anticipating an emotional reaction from Mika Brzezinski this morning in response to President Trump having called Stormy Daniels "horseface." After all, Trump had once tweeted that Mika was "bleeding badly from a face-lift" when he met her at Mar-a-Lago. Mika and her fiancé Joe Scarborough have not forgotten, relishing every opportunity to take it to the President. And Mika delivered as expected this morning, calling President Trump "base, animalistic and disgusting" for his "horseface" remark. Brzezinski took things a significant step further, wondering "what could the Russians have on him?"Get the rest of the...

    In a sign of how heated the fall campaign has become, two Minnesota Republicans say they were attacked and punched in separate incidents over the weekend. State Representative Sarah Anderson of Plymouth said she had confronted a man for kicking her campaign sign when he charged at her. First-time candidate Shane Mekeland of Becker said he suffered a concussion after a man punched him in the face at a Benton County restaurant.

    An embattled Democratic mayor from Massachusetts, who was arrested last week on suspicion of fraud and tax charges, is refusing to step down, calling his arrest "politically motivated" hours before city councilors pushed back a debate on how to handle the matter. "I am presumed innocent until proven otherwise," Mayor Jasiel Correia told reporters at a press conference at Fall River's City Hall. "I will not allow political enemies to remove me from office." He said the attack began shortly after assuming office because he was "challenging the norms" in the town.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller is “ready to deliver the key findings” of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to Bloomberg News. Two unnamed U.S. officials said Mueller will divulge what he’s found shortly after the November midterm elections as he faces growing pressure to produce more indictments or shut down his investigation. The announcements will reportedly focus on the two key planks of the investigation: whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, and whether Trump himself took any actions that constitute obstruction of justice. However, Mueller’s findings won’t necessarily be made public if he doesn’t...

    The Donald Trump loyalist who famously said he'd take a bullet for the President is now willing to publicly fight his former boss. Michael Cohen, the President's former lawyer, is prepared to campaign against Trump and Republicans in the midterm elections and the 2020 presidential race, a Democrat with knowledge told CNN. Marking the latest escalation in Cohen's growing animosity towards Trump, the source said he is open to doing a range of things to try to help the Democratic Party, including stumping for candidates, giving speeches and helping raise money.

    Why did the Democrats launch an unprecedented smear campaign against a Supreme Court nominee? The matrix of motives centers on a cynical midterm ploy to boost turnout, appeal to suburban female voters in swing states and, hopefully, defer the nomination to a Dem Senate. But that’s the short game, not the long game. The attack on Brett Kavanaugh was not just an assault on a man, but an attack on an institution. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 85 years old and Stephen Breyer is 80 years old. Presidential incumbents tend to win reelection. Even if the Democrats take the Senate, the...

    Google’s security foibles, its “aggregate and advertise” model, its avoidance of price signals, its silos of customer data, and its visions of machine mind are unlikely to survive the root-and-branch revolution of distributed peer-to-peer technology, which I call the “cryptocosm.” Today, all around us, scores of thousands of engineers and entrepreneurs are contriving a new system of the world that transcends the limits and illusions of the Google realm. In the Google era, the prime rule of the Internet is “Communications first.” That means everything is free to be copied, moved, and mutated. While most of us welcome “free” on...
