One of the five black students targeted by the slurs at the US Air Force Academy in September was actually responsible for the incident. Officials revealed Tuesday that the student admitted to writing the messages. Student is no longer at the school in Colorado Springs but it is not clear if the cadet was expelled or withdrew.

The student is no longer at the school but a spokesman refused to say whether the cadet withdrew or was expelled.

In a statement on Tuesday, the academy said: ‘We can confirm that one of the cadet candidates who was allegedly targeted by racist remarks written outside of their dorm room was actually responsible for the act.

‘The individual admitted responsibility and this was validated by the investigation.

Although no faces are shown Saudi government source says that the men on thin mattresses include Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, one of Middle East’s richest men. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia ordered dramatic round-up of top princes and ministers in ‘corruption probe’.

Asleep on the floor of their ‘luxury’ five star prison 11 Saudi princes, government ministers and businessmen await their fate following their arrest in the biggest anti-corruption purge of the kingdom’s modern history.

‘Fat Leonard’ probe expands to ensnare more than 60 admirals

The Justice Department has filed criminal charges against 28 people, including two admirals, since Francis was arrested in an international sting operation four years ago. Those cases comprise the worst corruption scandal in Navy history, but they represent a fraction of a much larger list of Navy officials under investigation but whose names have been mostly kept secret.

The “Fat Leonard” corruption investigation has expanded to include more than 60 admirals and hundreds of other U.S. Navy officers under scrutiny for their contacts with a defense contractor in Asia who systematically bribed sailors with sex, liquor and other temptations, according to the Navy.

Most of the admirals are suspected of attending extravagant feasts at Asia’s best restaurants paid for by Leonard Glenn Francis, a Singapore-based maritime tycoon who made an illicit fortune supplying Navy vessels in ports from Vladivostok, Russia to Brisbane, Australia. Francis also was renowned for hosting alcohol-soaked, after-dinner parties, which often featured imported prostitutes and sometimes lasted for days, according to federal court records.

The 350-pound Francis, also known in Navy circles as “Leonard the Legend” for his wild-side lifestyle, spent decades cultivating relationships with officers, many of whom developed a blind spot to his fraudulent ways. Even while he and his firm were being targeted by Navy criminal investigators, he received VIP invitations to ceremonies in Annapolis and Pearl Harbor, where he hobnobbed with four-star admirals, according to photographs obtained by The Washington Post.

The Bergdahl Travesty: A Commander’s Perspective

You also freed a deserter that will now cash in on his notoriety. Bergdahl will, no doubt, lock up a future book deal, a speaking career, possibly a reality show, maybe even a movie.

Congratulations Colonel Jeffrey Nance. Your verdict yesterday allowing Bowe Bergdahl to walk away without serving a single day in prison is yet another victory for anti-military leftists and a blow to the Constitution that you, personally, swore to support and defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Foreign and domestic. You’ve continued the assault on the Pentagon by those who see our military as a social engineering petri dish and not an institution of lethal firepower and defense. You’ve sided with those who want to attack the martial values and Judeo-Christian ethic that is the foundation of military service. And, simultaneously, you’ve created a new icon for the Antifa, Soros, anti-American movement, that will no doubt revel in the attention he’ll receive.

I don’t know you, Colonel Nance, I haven’t read your biography, but I’m guessing you’ve never commanded men and women in combat. For if you had, you’d understand the outraged reaction of our nation and your peers across the Department of Defense. If you had ever commanded, you would have known better. Instead, you let a confessed deserter, one of the most highly-profiled in decades, walk away with only a dishonorable discharge, a reduction in rank and a $10,000 fine. He abandoned his fellow soldiers during a time of war yet he get’s off with a virtual slap on the wrist. How, on Earth, could you come to that conclusion? What were you thinking? He pled guilty and you let him go.

Police reveal what could be a possible motive in the Las Vegas shooting

“Since September 2015, he’s lost a significant amount of wealth, and I think that might have been a determining factor on what he was determined to do,” Lombardo added.

According to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, Stephen Paddock — the man responsible for the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. — was a “status-driven,” high-rolling gambler who had been steadily losing money for two years.

In a wide-ranging interview with KLAS-TV in Las Vegas on Wednesday, Lombardo revealed that Paddock may have seen his image declining.

What does this have to do with a motive?

“He was going through some bouts of depression. But he was status-driven,” Lombardo told KLAS in the interview, which was given in an attempt to clarify the murkiness surrounding the October shooting.

King Calls Upon McConnell to Pass “No Sanctuary for Criminals Act” (Video)

Congressman Steve King calls upon Senate Majority Leader McConnell to move his House-passed legislation, the “No Sanctuary for Criminals Act” through the Senate. The bill would end funding for lawless Sanctuary Cities that undermine immigration law by refusing to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. American citizens are too frequently the victims of crime committed by illegal aliens who seek, and are provided, refuge in Sanctuary Cities.

Gregg Jarrett: Hillary Clinton’s scheme in ‘rigging’ the nomination may have been criminal (Video)

According to Brazile, the DNC went broke under the leadership of Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This dire circumstance presented a perfect scenario for Clinton to seize command of the party apparatus by paying off its debt of roughly $20 million dollars. But in exchange, the DNC executed a written, albeit hidden, agreement transferring to Clinton the committee’s finances, strategy, and money raised — all to the benefit of Clinton and to the detriment of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, her primary opponent.

Hillary Clinton has spent a year crying about how the presidency was stolen from her. Turns out, she stole the Democratic nomination from Bernie Sanders.

The stunning revelation from former Democratic National Committee interim chairperson Donna Brazile that Clinton secretly rigged the primary process by commandeering the DNC should come as no surprise to anyone. Clinton is nothing, if not unethical and corrupt. She always has been. This is precisely why pre-election polls consistently showed that a majority of Americans found her dishonest and untrustworthy.

The critical question now is whether she committed crimes in her theft of the nomination.

The Scheme

According to Brazile, the DNC went broke under the leadership of Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Hungary Asks ‘Is Everyone Entitled to Religious Freedom Except for Christians?’ After Anti-Cross Ruling

Hungary has offered to take a Christian cross which the French authorities say must be removed from a statue of Pope John Paul II in Brittany.

The courts had originally ruled that the entire statue, donated to the small town of Ploërmel by a Russian artist, must be torn down, but now say it may remain provided the cross is decapitated, prompting the mayor who received it to complain of “an attack on a part of our culture”.

The ruling has also caused considerable upset in the late pontiff’s native Poland, where he is revered as a symbol of Poland’s struggle to free itself from the Communist yoke by many, including the current government.

Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó told reporters that Budapest had contacted the town offering to arrange for the cross to be saved and transported to his country, where it would be received by the Saint Benedict Secondary and High School.

Update: Law Society of Ontario Compelled Speech – Jordan Peterson (Video)

On October 10, Professor Bruce Pardy, Lawyer Jared Brown and I uploaded the video A Call to Rebellion for Ontario Legal Professionals: (http://bit.ly/2yo4Jpe) in the wake of the Law Society’s new requirement for a mandatory “statement of principles” that appears primarily political in nature. We believe that this sets an ominous precedent, and that such demands, if accepted unchallenged by Canadian lawyers, will quickly spread to the other professional colleges and organizations in Canada and beyond.
