Alvin Bragg ‘will be responsible’ for any injuries in Trump protests
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com on Wednesday, Dennis Quirk blamed Bragg for creating a ‘zoo’ like atmosphere around the ex-president’s case.
‘I will personally hold him responsible if anybody is injured as a result of this circus atmosphere that he’s created,’ Quirk, president of the New York State Court Officers Association, said.
“If anybody is hurt, whether it’s law enforcement or a member of the public, it sits on Bragg’s lap because he’s created this zoo atmosphere by releasing the information last week about them meeting to discuss the indictment.’
SEC charges 8 celebs inc. Jake Paul with ‘illegally touting’ cryptos
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) today charged eight celebrities including Lindsay Lohan and Jake Paul with ‘illegally touting’ crypto currencies.
As well as Lohan and Paul, the regulator accused rappers Soulja Boy and Lil Yachty, singers Akon, Ne-Yo and Austin Mahone, and pornstar Kendra Lust, of promoting the assets without disclosing they were being compensated.

Two deans injured in shooting at East High School, student suspect is at-large
Chief Thomas said the suspect, a male student at East High School, was under a school safety agreement where he had to be patted down and searched in a front office before school each day. He said this had happened every day for a while without a problem, but on Wednesday, this student pulled a firearm and shot and injured the two deans.

Mayor Hancock said the suspect has been identified as a Black teen. He was last seen wearing a sweatshirt with an astronaut image on the front.
Fed raises interest rates a quarter point despite recent banking turmoil
The unanimous decision puts the key benchmark federal funds rate at a range of 4.75% to 5%, the highest since 2007, from near zero just one year ago. It marks the ninth consecutive rate increase aimed at combating high inflation.
Policymakers signaled that rate increases could soon come to an end, suggesting that future hikes will ultimately hinge on incoming data reports.
Fed officials are in the midst of the most aggressive tightening campaign since the 1980s as they try to crush inflation that is still running about three times higher than the pre-pandemic average.
New economic projections laid out after the meeting show that a majority of Fed officials who participated in the meeting expect rates to rise to 5.1% this year, implying just one more quarter-point increase. The quarterly forecasts indicate the U.S. central bank will not cut interest rates until 2024, to a rate of about 4.3%.
The Chilling Reason FBI Raided Chinese Whistleblower’s NYC Home
Special Forces veteran falsely labeled a domestic terrorist says FBI also targeted his family: ‘It’s horrible’
Former U.S. Green Beret servicemember Mike Glover, who founded American Contingency to provide disaster relief and support, told Fox News that he feels betrayed by the country he spent nearly two decades protecting after a whistleblower complaint exposed by the Rep. Jim Jordan, the current chair of the House Judiciary Committee, confirmed that his organization was targeted by the FBI and falsely designated a facilitator of domestic terror.
“It’s horrible,” Glover said in an interview Tuesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “I’m an entrepreneur first. That is what I wanted to do after a long time of service, and it just sucks being targeted by a country. My mom was targeted. My mom’s Facebook account was deleted because the FBI communicated to social media and destroyed all the social media accounts. My mom came here from Korea from meeting my military dad in the Army, and we are dealing with this. She is dealing with this. Her small beauty salon…is dealing with this.”
Quoting an unnamed whistleblower from inside the bureau, Jordan said the FBI investigated Glover’s military records, his veteran’s disability rating, and even his monthly disability benefit before ultimately determining he was not a perpetrator or instigator of domestic terror but instead a “decorated veteran of the United States” whose military record and frequent social media posts reflect his “patriotism for the United States.”
Hunter Biden used FBI mole named ‘One-Eye’ to tip him off to China probes: tipster
The House Oversight Committee is investigating the explosive claims by Dr. Gal Luft, a former Israel Defense Forces lieutenant colonel with deep intelligence ties in Washington and Beijing, who says he was arrested to stop him from revealing what he knows about the Biden family and FBI corruption — details he told the Department of Justice in 2019, which he says it ignored.
Luft, 56, first made the claims on Feb. 18 on Twitter, after being detained at a Cyprus airport as he prepared to board a plane to Israel.
“I’ve been arrested in Cyprus on a politically motivated extradition request by the U.S. The U.S., claiming I’m an arms dealer. It would be funny if it weren’t tragic. I’ve never been an arms dealer.
“DOJ is trying to bury me to protect Joe, Jim, and Hunter Biden.

Trump grand jury hearing canceled today, delaying possible indictment
Members of the panel were told to stay home and be on standby for Thursday, a law enforcement source said.
The move — which forestalls a potentially unprecedented indictment of the 45th president in connection with the payment of $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels — came because an unidentified witness was unable to appear, sources said.
It’s unclear whether the witness will be available on Thursday, which is why the grand jury was put on standby, a source said.
Biden’s DOJ is quietly trying to orchestrate taxpayer-funded bailout of Moderna
In a surprise filing last month, U.S. Attorney David Weiss issued a “statement of interest” in the case on behalf of the Department of Defense and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), invoking a rarely-used early 1900s law to argue that the federal government should take on any liability for patent infringement Moderna may be guilty of related to the development of its COVID-19 vaccine.
The filing concluded that companies whose patents Moderna may have infringed during COVID-19 vaccine development should be limited to pursuing a claim against the federal government in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
Moderna – which received about $10 billion in taxpayer money to produce its COVID-19 vaccine and has since earned billions more in profits selling it – was sued in early 2022 by Genevant Sciences and Arbutus Biopharma Corp., which accused Moderna of using technology they have patented in its vaccine.

‘LGBTQ+ Rights Are A Core Part of Our Foreign Policy,’ National Security Council Spokesman John Kirby Says
From CNS News:
At the White House on Tuesday, a reporter told Kirby that Uganda’s parliament had passed an “anti-homosexual bill” and that Ugandan officials planned to attend an African summit to discuss and promote the passage of similar laws in other African states.
He also said that Russia was potentially backing such laws as a “wedge” against the U.S. and because the Biden administration “is currently engaging with Africa on other issues, is this a concern for the U.S.?”
Kirby replied, “President Biden has been nothing but consistent about his foundational belief in human rights, and LGBTQ+ rights are human rights.”

1,500 migrants smuggled into Germany every week and it’s going to get worse, warns top police union chief
Andreas Roßkopf of the GDP police union revealed the concerning figures to German newspaper Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung, claiming that professional gangs are taking advantage of Europe’s porous borders and raking in the profits. “These are full professionals who advertise with a guarantee of success,” he said.
“We are currently detecting around 1,500 illegal entries per week at the borders. It will certainly not stop there. With every month that gets warmer, more people come,” he told the newspaper’s editorial team.
The police union chief called for federal police to be better equipped, claiming technical resources including drones, cameras and more modern emergency vehicles are required to stem the flow.
He stopped short of calling for permanent border controls, however, insisting the country does not have the personnel to effectively man the borders.
‘Keep out of other people’s business!’ Hungarian foreign minister scolds US State Department
Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó launched a blistering attack against the U.S. State Department on Wednesday, accusing the United States of continuously encroaching on the sovereignty of independent nations and commenting on issues that should be of no concern to the U.S. government.
Speaking at a joint press conference in Sarajevo with his Bosnia-Herzegovina counterpart, Elmedin Konakovic, Szijjártó was asked to comment on a recent publication by the U.S. State Department, which criticized what it described as “irresponsible comments” from Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik, who was re-elected in November last year to serve a third term as president of the Republika Srpska, a majority-Serb entity of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Dodik had recently publicly threatened to secede the Republika Srpska from Bosnia-Herzegovina if its territorial integrity was at stake, and criticized a recent decision by Bosnia-Herzegovina’s Constitutional Court in early March to repeal a property law passed in the Republika Srpska a day before it came into force.
84% of failed asylum seekers in Ireland not deported, status is unknown
Almost 4,000 failed asylum seekers who have been issued deportation orders in Ireland over the past five years currently have an “unknown status” in the country, the latest figures have revealed.
Following a Freedom of Information request, government data seen by the NewsTalk media outlet showed that 4,631 deportation orders were issued to failed asylum seekers between 2018 and 2022.
Of those, the Office of the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB) enforced just 314 orders, or 7 percent, while the Department of Justice provided assistance in 430 other cases (9 percent) for people who voluntarily left Irish territory.
The remaining 84 percent, some 3,887 people, currently have unknown status in the country.

Uganda: Parliament Approves Death Penalty for ‘Aggravated Homosexuality’
The new law would increase the penalties for committing homosexual acts and criminalize “promoting and abetting homosexuality” in addition to actively engaging in it.
The capital offense of “aggravated homosexuality” is defined as same-sex relations with a person “below the age of eighteen years,” or someone who has a “disability.”
Aggravated homosexuality also occurs if the “offender is a person living with HIV,” is a “parent or guardian of the person against whom the offense is committed,” has “authority or control over the person against whom the offense is committed,” uses drugs to “overpower” a victim, or is a “serial offender.”
Reuters noted that one reason the new offense of “aggravated homosexuality” was created was because Uganda has experienced a rash of students who were allegedly “recruited into homosexuality in schools.”

IMF staff reaches agreement with Ukraine for $15.6 bln program
The International Monetary Fund said on Tuesday it had reached a staff-level agreement with Ukraine for a four-year financing package worth about $15.6 billion, offering funds the country needs as it continues to defend against Russia’s invasion.
The agreement, which must still be ratified by the IMF’s board, takes into consideration Ukraine’s path to accession to the European Union after the war. The fund said its executive board was expected to discuss approval in the coming weeks.
IMF staff on Tuesday briefed board members on the agreement – which would be Ukraine’s biggest loan package since Russia’s full-scale invasion on Feb. 24, 2022 – and the board was supportive, a source familiar with the matter said.
Australian girl tortured for five hours in sick fake party trap
The girl’s mother claimed the three girls had befriended her daughter two weeks before the alleged attack and that they’d invited her to a ‘party’ at their home.
When she arrived, the girl was allegedly tortured over five hours by three other female attackers aged between 12 and 14 years old, and spent a week in hospital following the attack.
‘Her face was swollen to a degree that you couldn’t recognise her. It looked like her head was going to explode,’ her mother told the Courier Mail. Pictures of the aftermath of the incident have been independently obtained by Daily Mail Australia.
The girl’s mother claims the alleged attackers showered her following the torture session, before making her daughter clean up her own blood.
Man set on fire in Birmingham is named as Mohammed Rayaz – as suspect arrested over similar attack in London
