Monster Serpent Reveals Itself From Hole In Ground
The developers behind the Roseland Apartment complex are eyeing Worcester's historic Notre Dame des Canadiens Church for demolition in order to make way for a four-story apartment building with 84 units and retail space.
According to documents submitted to Worcester's Planning Board, a public hearing on the proposal is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 2 at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall.
Roseland is currently building 370 market-rate apartment units between Front and Franklin streets in downtown Worcester that will also house five retail tenants. The apartments are expected to open up to residents between January and February 2018.
The Notre Dame Church was spared the wrecking ball for a year after the city's Historical Commission denied the property owners, CitySquare II Development Co., a demolition delay waiver. That decision for CitySquare II to invest resources into finding alternatives to development that could keep the church standing.
However, that demolition delay waiver expired in April, and CitySquare II ended up selling the historic property to an unknown group.
The city is in a renaissance of development, dining and culture, and historic properties like the Notre Dame Church and the Paris Cinema in downtown have been targeted by developers to make for Worcester's new future. The demolition of both properties has prompted responses from groups like Preservation Worcester, who seek to protect Worcester's historic properties.
A flying object has prompted speculation a UFO has taken to the skies above Cornwall. People across the county have been stunned to see the shimmering black object flying overhead . It has been seen over Truro city centre, Carluddon clay tip, Fistral beach in Newquay, over the A30, above Roche Rock and by a surfer above the sea off the Cornish coast. People have taken to social media in their droves after witnessing the weird object. The first to spot it was surfer Kiefer Krishnan, who caught it on his Go-Pro camera, which he posted on his Instagram account on Monday.
Security camera video shows someone who appears to be dressed in black and wearing a mask walk up to a Boyle Heights coffee shop and aim what looks like a slingshot at the front door.
One of the owners of Weird Wave Coffee tells CBSLA some didn’t offer the warmest welcome when his shop opened here over a month ago. Protesters have voiced their anger over a much larger anti-gentrification issue in the neighborhood. Still, the owner says, he doesn’t want to point fingers and has no idea who did this.
“So when I arrived I saw the glass shattered and said ‘oh ok the glass is broken’ open the gate and open the door and all the glass fell down to the floor,” the owner said.
Steven Martinez owns Lees Key and Locksmith down the street. It’s been around since the 1950s and unlike some here he’s in favor of new businesses moving in.
Some in the area feel newcomers are driving up rents and pushing out businesses and people who have lived here for years.
“Everybody’s afraid of change and change is constant so it’s good for that business person to come in,” Martinez said. “And I like to have a coffee once in a while instead of Jack in-the-Box, what’s wrong with it?”
People we talked with tell us they came by the coffee shop Wednesday to get good coffee and simply say they want the coffee shop here.
“Bashing and vandalizing and threatening is not going to stop progress,” Customer Nathan Haener said. “There’s too much happening in this city and not one community is immune to what’s frankly a statewide issue.”
“When you look around and you see this art, this isn’t white people trying to shove white culture down someone’s throat,” Customer Meredith Miller said. “The art is beautiful, the coffee is delicious and they’re just trying to provide a safe place for people to come.”
The Sharia police see themselves as the guardians of Islam in Aceh.
Decked out in military-style, olive-green uniforms and berets, they cruise the streets in their open-top vehicles, looking for anyone breaking Islamic law.
Their first stop is the beach. It is a popular destination for teenagers in Aceh at night.
A romantic ballad plays on the speakers, while young couples lounge on plastic chairs, in front of makeshift cafes.
Boys in their jeans and some girls in their jilbabs, eating corn on the cob and sipping Coca-Cola. A picture of harmless, innocent adolescence.
But the party does not last long. The Sharia police are here - and they zero in on their first target. A young boy and girl, sitting too close to one another in the dark.
What happens next would be almost farcical if it was not so humiliating for those involved. The Sharia police surround the couple, demanding to see their identity cards.
The young girl, wearing a bright yellow jilbab, turns away, too embarrassed to speak.
The boy, clean shaven and handsome, tries to explain that they were doing nothing wrong - just hanging out and talking, but is cut short by one of the men in charge.
They are told to get out of the dark and leave the beachfront. It is late and they should not be out at night - especially since they are unmarried and not related to one another by blood.
"Under our laws, an unmarried man and woman who sit alone together in the dark are immoral," Zaki Almubarak tells me.
"To prevent them from committing adultery, we stop them."
Syarifuddin, 41, was bathing with friends when the 6.5ft reptile pounced and dragged him beneath the water in Berau, Indonesia, on Tuesday at 6.20pm. Desperate relatives searched for Syarifuddin but he appeared to have disappeared in the murky depths of the Lempake river after police failed to find him. Villagers contacted a local black magic wizard who specialises in crocodile witch craft and they cast a spell for Syarifuddin to be brought back alive.
Mayoral candidate Paul Congemi has made national news for a racial tirade at Tuesday’s mayoral forum when he told supporters of International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement-affiliated candidate Jesse Nevel to “go back to Africa.”
In the midst of a question about opportunities for youth in the city, Congemi veered off topic in a bizarre way:
“Mr. Nevel, you and your people, you talk about reparations. The reparations that you talk about, Mr. Nevel, your people already got your reparations," Congemi said. "Your reparations came in the form of a man named Barack Obama.”
The large contingent of Nevel’s supporters erupted in disbelief and outrage. “Get out of here!” a woman shouted repeatedly.
Congemi didn't stop there: “My advice to you, my advice to you, if you don’t like it here in America, planes leave every hour. Go back to Africa, go back to Africa.”
His comments were directed at Nevel, who is white. He is the national chair of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, a group that organizes white support for black-led community social justice. It is an organization that works with the main Uhuru organization, which has many African-American members, including founder and activist Omali Yeshitela.
As his comments reverberated around the internet on Wednesday, Congemi, who usually favors handwritten letters, emailed the following statement to the Tampa Bay Times.
“I must comment on the remarks I said last night ... Yes: I did tell those people to go back to Africa," Congemi wrote. "My remark was meant for the group Mr. Nevel represents. Not all African Americans. Just those that Nevel represents."
A black man who apparently decided to ignore the crosswalk signals was subsequently hit by a car and decided that it wasn't him that was in fault but the driver who was actually complying with all the signals.
So they decided to attack one another with machetes, trash cans, bottles, and anything else they could get their hands on.
They even through some of the wildest haymaker punches you've ever seen in your life.
HIALEAH, Fla. - A Hialeah man was captured on surveillance video Wednesday morning shooting out the tires of two utility trucks after workers parked in front of his home. Old dude has been arrested. Jove was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and felony vandalism. “He just lost his mind for a moment. We don’t know what the deal is with him,” said Det. Carl Zogby, Hialeah Police. “Now, as part of the investigation, we’re going to find out if he’s got any history what his problem is. But, this was totally uncalled for.”
Investigations by Italian authorities and others have found that NGOs funded by among others George Soros, are actively financing private ships to smuggle tens of thousands of illegal North African refugees into the EU via Southern Italy. The human trafficking is reportedly linked to ISIS smuggling networks. If confirmed by authorities, it could potentially open the NGOs to criminal charges .
Carmelo Zuccaro, the Chief Prosecutor of Catania, Sicily, has testified to a committee of the Italian Parliament in March that an official investigation into the funding of a fleet of modern refugee boats in the Mediterranean by private NGOs is warranted. He cited evidence that the human traffic smugglers in Libya and other North African coastal states, often reportedly linked to ISIS or other criminal bands, were coordinating the traffic into Italy of tens of thousands of illegal refugees. Zuccaro reported evidence that the human traffickers either on land, or on board smaller migrant boats, call the larger NGO-financed rescue vessels directly to arrange transfer of refugees. That implies a very close level of coordination between the human smuggler bands and the NGO-funded fleet of ships.
Zuccaro announced that his office is investigating what he called the “abnormal” amount of funds that allows even small agencies to hire ships. Italian authorities have so far uncovered at least ten private Non-Governmental Organizations involved, among them several NGOs financed by US hedge fund speculator George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.
Zuccaro also told Italian press that, “the facilitation of illegal immigration is a punishable offense regardless of the intention.” He said that Italy was also investigating Islamic radicalization occurring in prisons and camps where immigrants are hired, illegally or off the books. European Immigration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos stated that some 80% of the North African migrants arriving in Italy had no legal right to asylum. Many were reportedly from criminal gangs that sprang up after the 2011 US-backed bombing of Libya and killing of Gaddafi that threw the country into anarchy.
Over the course of the past year as the refugee human trafficking route through Greece has been all but closed down, the route into the EU from North Africa has shifted to southern Italy and to use of modern chartered vessels to carry the thousands of refugees to Sicily and other parts of Southern Italy. In the first two months of 2017 illegal refugee inflows from Libya into southern Italy have risen by as much as 40% over the same period a year earlier.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A Saudi prince has been arrested after a video emerged online purporting to show him abusing someone and pointing a rifle at another. King Salman ordered the arrest and interrogation of the prince on Wednesday, a day after short video clips were published on YouTube and shared on Twitter showing what appears to be a rifle pointed toward a man who is bleeding from the head and pleading. One clip, viewed more than 760,000 times, also shows 18 bottles of Johnnie Walker Red Label whisky displayed on a table and a wad of cash. The sale and consumption of alcohol in Saudi Arabia is forbidden. Another video clip shows a man sitting in a car, bleeding and being cursed at for parking in front of a house. Another clip shows what appears to be the prince punching and slapping a man who is sitting on a chair. The clips went viral in Saudi Arabia under an Arabic Twitter hashtag that said "prince transgresses on citizens." Saudi Arabia's state TV reported Wednesday that the king ordered a full investigation into the incidents and the arrest of Prince Saud bin Abdulaziz bin Musaed bin Saud bin Abdulaziz, as well as any associates that appeared in the clips. He ordered that no individual involved in the case be released until a court has issued a ruling in line with the country's Islamic Shariah laws. In the order, King Salman urged people to remain vigilant in monitoring any exploitation of status or abuse of power. After he issued the order, a video seen nearly a quarter-million times showed the young, low-level prince, dressed in a black t-shirt and grey sweatpants, handcuffed and with his feet chained being escorted into a building by security officers. While many Saudis wrote in support of the king's decision on Twitter, outspoken rights activist Moudi Aljohani said the order actually points to how lax the authorities are when it comes to royals. The arrest comes a day after state media reported that a woman who was filmed walking around a historic Saudi fort in a miniskirt and crop top sparked outrage among conservatives for defying the kingdom's dress code for women, which requires females to cover in public in long, loose robes. The outcry prompted police to detain and question her for several hours before she was released without charge. While Saudi royals are given privileged status in the kingdom, in addition to undisclosed monthly allowances from the state, they are not immune to prosecution. In an extremely rare event, the kingdom executed a prince last October who had fatally shot another man. Saudi Arabia has one of the highest rates of executions in the world. Since ascending to throne in 2015, King Salman has branded himself a "decisive" leader. He has fired ministers caught on video being rude or insulting citizens. He also fired a senior royal court official who was filmed slapping a photographer. Before becoming king, Salman served as the governor of the capital, Riyadh, and as defense minister. A leaked 2007 U.S. Embassy memo said he "is often the referee in family disputes." He also reportedly oversaw a prison for wayward royals in Riyadh.
African and Muslim migrants into Italy have become increasingly violent as they continue to demand free handouts by not just the government but also the citizens who own and operate businesses such as street vendors.
Here is a group of African and Muslim migrants launching a brutal assault on a group of street vendors in Catania. The migrants were demanding free food and other freebies from the vendors when things escalated into violence after being denied.
At the center of national debate, a question remains unanswered: Are sanctuary cities that protect illegal immigrants safer than non-sanctuary cities?
Sanctuary supporters claim they are.
"Police chiefs across the nation believe that enlisting local police to enforce immigration law is a bad idea," California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon, a Democrat, claimed at a news conference last week. "Having [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] pluck criminals out of jail and send them across the border or wherever they came only to come right back endangers our communities.”
But is that true?
A six-year study published last year by the University of California, Riverside found "violent crime is slightly higher in sanctuary cities." It concluded there was "no statistically discernible difference in violent crime rates, rape, or property crime across" 55 cities studied.
And at least one city, Phoenix, saw a drop in crime after it eliminated its sanctuary city status, according to former law enforcement officials.
Yet, some 200 cities nationwide adopted sanctuary policies and lawmakers propose to make California a sanctuary state. While the statute is opposed by the statewide county sheriff's association, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck supports the bill that would prohibit local police from cooperating with ICE requests for information on illegal immigrants in custody.
"We do not want to dilute trust because trust is the most important thing in policing," said Chief Beck. "We depend on our communities, particularly our immigrant communities to cooperate with us, not only to keep them safe but to keep all of you safe."
Beck and De Leon were joined by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. They oppose two bills passed Thursday by the House. One measure – named Kate's law after a young woman who was killed by an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times – stiffens punishment for people who re-enter the US illegally. The other strips some federal dollars from "sanctuary" cities that refuse to cooperate with ICE.
New Jersey Girls Run Up In Another Chick's House & Beat Her Up Over A Man!
There’s a mysterious hidden Muslim compound called Islamberg that’s nestled deep within the woods of the Catskill mountains in New York. The only way to access the 70-acre compound is through primitive dirt roads, where more than 100 Muslims live in seclusion away from the prying eyes of curious Americans. For over two decades, infidels have been prohibited from entering, as anyone attempting to enter will be “greeted” by armed Muslims patrolling a guard shack at the compound’s entry gate. Without access to the compound, there’s been no way to confirm rumors about the location being used as a training ground for Muslim terrorists. But after an alarming incident involving one of the Islamberg residents, police were finally able to obtain a warrant and raid the place. And what they discovered that these Muslims have been quietly plotting for years is nothing short of chilling.
For over two decades, this cult-like group of Sharia Law-following Muslims have lived quietly under the guidance of Pakistani Sheikh Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, a radical Muslim with known ties to Jamaat al-Fuqra, a terror organization responsible for a long list of terrorist activities around the world, including murders of rival religious figures in the United States. Locals in the area have often times reported the sounds of gunfire and explosions emanating from the compound, but because the Muslims weren’t necessarily breaking any laws, there was nothing that law enforcement could do except keep a close eye on the place from a distance.
But with a recent arrest of Islamberg resident Ramadan Abdullah who was recently caught trying to steal several cases of ammunition from a local mountain store in the area, authorities finally had their chance to obtain a search warrant for the compound, and what they discovered was nothing short of chilling.
Shortly after arresting Ramadan Abdullah for theft, the Muslim’s answers about why he was stealing ammunition raised suspicion among police, who then decided to obtain a search warrant to investigate their suspicions further. During their raid they discovered a massive stockpile of illegal weapons throughout the Islamberg location, including 8 assault weapons, 4 loaded handguns, 1 loaded shotgun, 2 rifles, 64 high-capacity ammunition feeding devices, and body armor, including thousands of rounds of .50 caliber ammunition capable of piercing body armor. But illegal cache of weapons seized at the compound was unfortunately just the beginning.
After Abdullah’s arrest, authorities began looking closer into his background, discovering that the Muslim is a long-time associate of the U.S.-based Islamist terrorist organization, Muslims of America (MOA), and was the very same Muslim who was arrested back in 1977 after police discovered enough material at his home to build 50 bombs.
Abdullah also participated in the armed robbery of a candy store in Brooklyn back in the 70’s that resulted in the death of a man. But after serving time and having his sentence drastically reduced, Abdullah had pretty much fallen off the radar of authorities, quietly living on the Islamberg compound and training other terrorists on the use of weapons. His arrest has now validated the fears that New York residents held all along that the compound was in fact location being used to actively train terrorists, where FOX News is now coming forward with other possible rumors of there being a tank on the grounds as well, and that the location was once used to hide Osama bin Laden from authorities.
It's no secret that the mainstream media is a giant liberal cesspool willing to do and say anything to make sure their Democrat candidate gets elected. In this case it's Hillary Clinton. Yet in the midst of two consecutive email scandals, her record of failure, including letting four Americans die in Benghazi, and having the father of the terrorist responsible for the worst attack since 9/11 sitting behind her at a recent rally, all the media can report is, "Hey, look, Trump said something distasteful again!"
In the compilation video (below), the YouTube channel "Centipede Productions" has amassed 10 minutes worth of CNN claiming technical difficulties, shouting down guests, and flat-out cutting the microphone of people who attempt to speak the facts pertaining to Hillary Clinton's scandal-ridden past and present.
Good times had even in the face of death!
Police are still investigating the death of a Dallas citizen who was ambushed by 2 gunwielding Mexican gang members in his own home.
According to police, the Mexican gang member that was shot and killed was well-known and has been deported by ICE numerous times for illegally entering the United States.
The 2nd individual is unknown as he was not apprehended by police.
The homeowner did in fact die from wounds sustained during the shoot out with the 2 Mexican gang members.
"We don't tip white ppl, LOL"
That hateful message was written on a receipt and left for a message for a Memphis server during his shift on Sunday.
Now people in the community are rallying around the man after his friend posted a picture of the receipt on Facebook, which is getting a lot of attention.
Brandy Sciara saw the horrible, racist message on her phone when her friend Nathan Bergeron sent her a picture of the receipt a couple left him during his shift at on the border Mexican Grill at near Wolfchase.
"I was absolutely devastated and so sad for him," said Sciara.
And to make matters worse, Brandy says Nathan sleeps in his car and he's working to get money for an apartment.
"I've seen Nathan, he's counting his dollars and trying to add it up to see if he has gas to make it to work the next day," said Sciara. "He's not going to tell you how it really makes him feel, he's just hoping he has a couch to sleep on the next day."
I asked her did Nathan mention anything about how the couple treated him.
"His response was, the lady was actually really nice," said Sciara. "It could've been the boyfriend or husband that was with her that wrote it, and he said it happens, people don't want to tip and they don't have too."
Brandy tells me she posted the receipt on Facebook hoping people would send words of encouragement, but most asked if they could donate money. This promoted her to start a GoFundMe for Nathan that's reached over $1,000.
