GUEST OPINION: Newsom's Latest Sanctuary State Scam

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s latest sanctuary state scam: Illegal aliens who crash our borders can find sanctuary in California. Women who want to abort their child, but live in states with restrictive abortion laws, can come to California to have a doctor kill their baby. Now young boys and girls who are sexually confused, and who live in states where puberty blockers and chemical castration are considered child abuse, can go to California where they will be “treated.” The contempt that California Gov. Gavin Newsom has for America’s sovereignty is on a par with his contempt for state’s rights and parental rights. All this from a man who helped kill his own mother in 2002, at a time when assisted suicide was a felony in California! On September 29, Newsom signed a bill, sponsored by a homosexual activist and state senator, Scott Wiener,... Read more →

Porn Website Owner Named to FBI's 10 Most Wanted List

Pornography website owner wanted on sex trafficking, child pornography charges The owner and operator of a pornography production company, who is charged with sex trafficking and production of child pornography, now has a place on the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. The FBI is offering $100,000 for information that leads directly to his arrest. Michael James Pratt and his co-conspirators allegedly used internet advertisements and fake websites and email addresses to recruit young women for modeling jobs. According to charging documents, Pratt and others would only disclose that they were actually seeking women for pornographic video shoots only after the victims responded to the advertisements. Investigators say the women were promised that the videos were for a private collector overseas and that they would remain anonymous. Pratt and his partners allegedly hired other young women to falsely reassure reluctant participants that their images would never appear online. But the videos... Read more →

Lower Township Police Department Considers Potential Use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

Lower Township Police Announce UAS Program In 2021 the Lower Township Police conducted a study into the potential use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS). The Department contacted several vendors to explore the capabilities of different brands and their strengths and weaknesses. Officers attended training with the Gloucester Township Police Department, which already has an established program with multiple UAS platforms. Lower Township's unique geography comprises residential neighborhoods, densely wooded areas, marshlands, and estuaries. With numerous missing person cases and water rescues, it was determined that obtaining a UAS with a thermal camera would give officers an advantage in finding someone lost or injured in specific inaccessible locations. Conventional aerial resources such as the Coast Guard or State Police helicopters are challenging to get due to weather, the large area they cover, and the prioritization of their requests. Being able to deploy a UAS with a thermal camera rapidly means we... Read more →
