Online activists' 'First Amendment audits' -- patriotism or provocation?

Today 06:03 GMT

“The Constitution protects even obnoxious gadflies," Levin added, "but I do have to step back for a second and say at a time when Germany, France, Britain and the U.S. have seen significant spikes in anti-Semitic hate crime, that to do this, is certainly constitutionally protected, but also seems to skirt common sense."

The transgender YouTube personality who was shot outside a Los Angeles synagogue on Thursday is part of an online community that intentionally films law enforcement officials to get their reaction and test constitutional rights.

How Minneapolis' Somali community became the terrorist recruitment capital of the US

Today 01:29 GMT

– More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.

The answers matter because federal authorities say they remain "highly concerned" about the terrorist connection with the Minneapolis Somalis - even though al-Shabab is struggling against the Somali government, and the so-called ISIS “caliphate” has crumbled under a sustained U.S.-led military campaign. “We are very conscious that there may still be fertile ground for that, and that is could re-start at any time," one federal official told Fox News.

Ellen Page says she feels responsibility to spotlight efforts of N.S. activists

Friday 16:21 GMT

“I didn’t grow up in a queer positive environment, but I’m grateful to see it’s changing, and for all the activists there who have created so much change in Halifax,” said Page. “We need to be mindful that a lot of the time, we see the progress and don’t understand that certain members of the community are dealing with a lot of day-to-day struggles.”

An impending apocalypse looms over Netflix’s new series “The Umbrella Academy” – but for Canadian star Ellen Page, the prospect of the end of the world doesn’t seem that unrealistic.

Good riddance to Amazon's New York swindle

Friday 15:26 GMT

After a tremendous backlash from community leaders and activists, Amazon is reversing plans to place a new headquarters in Queens — and more importantly, giving up a giant sack of tax benefits (totaling over $3 billion) from various parts of the New York government.

Amazon did not remotely need the money, and New York City already has low unemployment, a severe housing shortage, and a dysfunctional transit system.

Parkland to observe mass shooting's first anniversary with 'service and love'

Thursday 11:46 GMT

If there remain plentiful visual indications that the nation’s deadliest high school shooting took place in this south Florida community exactly one year ago, the commemoration of Thursday’s first anniversary will confirm that the 17 victims and survivors are anything but forgotten.

Our community didn’t let this stop them from being the great community it was prior to this.”. Hunschofsky says she is also keen that Thursday’s remembrance focuses on “the human side” of the tragedy and not the firestorm of political controversy that still surrounds its aftermath, including the removal of the Broward county sheriff, Scott Israel, by Florida’s new governo,r Ron DeSantis, and efforts to unseat Robert Runcie, Broward’s superintendent of schools, blamed by some Parkland parents for alleged missteps before and after the shooting. “When you have mass tragedies it’s easy to kind of make everything about issues,” she said.
