Tom Schneiter, who is assigned to the Capitol

NEW ROCHELLE, [NY]--A makeshift memorial has been erected outside of the Dunkin' Donuts in Westchester County where a 16-year old girl was fatally stabbed Wednesday afternoon. Candles and flowers have been carefully placed alongside a photo of the victim with the words, "In loving memory of Valaree Schwab." Schwab was stabbed twice with a steak knife during a dispute involving five or six New Rochelle High School students. Police say the melee lasted 10 minutes and spanned several blocks of North Avenue. The teen was a self-described anarchist who friends say was picked on because of her appearance, and her outspokenness. Police have charged 16-year old Z'inah Brown with second-degree murd

BERKELEY, [CA]--A California court has ordered noted Antifa activist Yvette Felarca to pay over $11,000 in damages to former Berkeley College Republicans President Troy Worden. The ruling, issued Wednesday, comes after a restraining order filed against Worden by Felarca was dropped in October, prompting Worden and his lawyer, Mark Meuser, to sue Felarca for damages and attorney fees. Worden, who has made numerous appearances on national media in his capacity as a Campus Reform correspondent to discuss his ongoing battles with the Berkeley administration and who was voted a winner of Campus Reform's 2017 Higher Ed Heroes Award, remarked at the time that "Felarca's frivolous legal actions wer

HAMILTON, ONTARIO, [CN]--An anonymous poster is taking credit for drilling holes and pouring corrosive material into sections of stored pipe meant for Enbridge’s Line 10 pipeline back in September. Currently under construction, the project involves expanding 35 kilometres of the line, installed in 1962, allowing it to carry up to 74,000 barrels of oil per day. “Back when Enbridge started shipping in pipeline segments for their Line 10 expansion, we started sabotaging them,” the poster braggs on Anarchist News. The poster describes going on long, moonlit strolls through freshly-dug pipeline trenches. “Wherever we felt the urge, we drilled various sized holes into pipeline segments wh

DEBARY, [FL]--A man arrested at a DeBary home where deputies uncovered explosive devices and about 200 containers holding unknown powders, acids and other materials, including bodily fluids, was one step from creating a weapon of mass destruction, Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said. The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said deputies were called Sunday afternoon to a domestic disturbance at 124 Bradwick Circle. Deputies said Christopher S. Langer, 31, was arguing with his parents when he told them that he had placed an explosive substance inside a grenade. Langer, who deputies said was intoxicated, initially denied the grenade existed, but later said he had thrown it outside, authoriti

UNITED STATES, [US]--"Refuse fascism," a nascent protest group with ties to a more explicitly left-wing radical group, "the revolutionary communist party," doesn’t seem like a typical fit for the left-leaning pages of the paper known as The Gray Lady, but very little has been normal about the Trump era so far, according to organizers. The regime is destroying the planet by ignoring climate change, they say, and they claim it is turning America into a fascist country through an unprecedented series of executive orders. The explicit goal of the November 4 protests, which have been warped into a number of increasingly bizarre, "antifa"-related conspiracy theories by right-wing media, is to r
