The Latest Headlines You Need To Know

  • As co-editor of AltRight.com and president of The National Policy Institute, white supremacist Richard Spencer has risen to become one of the highest profile white nationalists in America. >> Read more trending news Spencer, who was born in 1978 in Boston, made headlines shortly after the 2016 election when a meeting of the National Policy Institute went viral. In a video clip of the gathering, attendees could be seen giving Nazi salutes as Spencer cheered, “Hail Trump! Hail our people!” >> Related: Restaurant apologizes for hosting alt-right conference Here are some things to know about the alt-right leader: 1. Spencer is a white separatist who believes in creating an Aryan homeland. He told Salon.com in 2013 that white people “need to start thinking about a new ethno-state that we would want to be a part of.” He told The Atlantic in June 2017 that the goal of creating a white “ethno-state” is a long-term project and will come about “through a slow process of awakening ethnic pride and instituting government policies that reflect a new white race consciousness.” His National Policy Institute describes itself as “dedicated to the heritage, identity and future of people of European descent in the United States and around the world.” 2. Spencer is known as one of the most successful young white nationalist leaders in America, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit civil rights advocacy group. The organization described Spencer as a leading “academic racist” who “takes a quasi-intellectual approach to white separatism. “ 3. Spencer doesn’t see himself as a white supremacist but instead calls himself an “identitarian.” In a 2015 interview with Vice magazine, Spencer said that, “He prefers the terms ‘alternative right’ and ‘identitarianist’ over ‘racist’ or ‘white supremacist.’” 'Identity is the most important question to answer,” Spencer told Vice. “Who are we racially? Who are we historically? Who are we in terms of our experience? Who are we in terms of our community?' 4. Spencer is credited with coining the term “alternative right” or “alt right.” The term appeared in a 2008 article for the far-right Taki’s magazine, according to the Anti-Defamation League. “At the time, Spencer was using ‘alternative right’ to refer to people on the right who distinguished themselves from traditional conservatives by opposing, among other things, egalitarianism, multiculturalism and open immigration,” according to the group.  5. Spencer was banned from 27 European countries. He was jailed in Hungary and subsequently deported in 2014 after he attempted to organize the National Police Institute Conference for white nationalists, according reports from The Daily Beast and The Telegraph. In a statement issued at the time by Hungary’s Ministry of Interior, officials said the National Police Institute was made up of “proponents of racist ideologies, and the expression of their opinions is contrary to the fundamental law.”
  • A New Orleans man who told police he killed his 18-month-old daughter because “God told him to do it” stabbed the girl multiple times in the heart then held her as she cried for hours before suffocating her, authorities said.  Mark Hambrick, 45, is charged with second-degree murder and second-degree cruelty to a juvenile, Orleans Parish jail records show. He is being held without bond.  NOLA.com reported that Hambrick, who called 911 early Tuesday morning to report that he’d killed his daughter, told investigators that he stabbed the girl four times in the heart with a serrated kitchen knife. He waited for her to “bleed out,” holding the crying baby in his arms for nearly five hours, court documents said. Finally, he suffocated her.  New Orleans police Superintendent Michael Harrison said during a Tuesday news conference that Hambrick told 911 dispatchers he suffocated the girl to “put the child out of its misery.” A warrant for Hambrick stated that he told police “God told him to” kill his daughter so “the State of Louisiana can kill him so he can be resurrected,” NOLA.com reported.  The Advocate in Baton Rouge reported that Hambrick’s daughter, who police have not named publicly, was identified on social media as Amina.  Hambrick’s wife, Amina’s mother, was working in Baton Rouge at the time of the slaying. Monika Gerhart-Hambrick is on the staff of Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome. Broome said in a statement Tuesday that she stood behind Gerhart-Hambrick during this “unimaginable” situation.  “This is a horrible tragedy,” Broome said, according to NOLA.com. “No parent should ever have to lose a child, especially in such a violent way. We are here for Monika and her family for whatever they need.” Neighbors in Hambrick’s Bywater neighborhood were stunned by Tuesday’s slaying, and by the allegations against Hambrick, who worked as an internal audit analyst at the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board. One neighbor described the family to NOLA.com as “sweet people.” Other neighbors said that the baby had recently learned to walk and was talkative, often heard babbling as her parents took her for walks in her stroller. Hambrick’s own Facebook page has a number of photos that appear to show a happy family.  Hambrick seemed like a normal dad, neighbors told New Orleans’ WVUE television station.  “They interacted with each other well,” one neighbor said. “There was no body language that would indicate that something like this would happen.” Harrison said Tuesday that investigators were looking into Hambrick’s background to determine if mental illness or drugs or alcohol played a part in the homicide. Despite his explanation of why he killed his daughter, Hambrick told detectives that he knew what he did was wrong, according to NOLA.com.  >> Read more trending news Hambrick called 911 around 7 a.m. Tuesday and told dispatchers what he had done. Harrison said in a news conference, recorded and shared by NOLA.com, that Hambrirck gave dispatchers a description of himself and of his daughter, and told them where he and the child would be when officers arrived.  Officers who responded to the scene found Hambrick sitting on his porch, as he said he’d be. They handcuffed Hambrick and went into the house, where they found the child lying dead on a bed. She had multiple stab wounds. Harrison said an autopsy will determine if the baby was also suffocated. The knife used in the slaying was found near the girl’s body.  Dispatchers who questioned Hambrick asked why he killed the baby, Harrison said. “He gave us some details, but simply put, he told us over the phone that God made him do it,” the police superintendent said Tuesday.

  • While most people have a cat or a dog to keep them company, Karly Venezia has a chicken – and she takes it paddleboarding. Loretta the 1-year-old chicken seems to have taken a liking to the water sport and often accompanies Venezia on the waters of Islamorada. She spoke with FOX 13.  “Loretta is very curious and follows us around the yard,” she told the station, “…living in the Florida Keys, we like to get out on the water so it only seemed natural to us to take Loretta paddle boarding and boating and things that we do with our dogs.”  Any tourist could likely tell you that chickens are fairly common in the Florida Keys, but not necessarily pet chickens. A paddleboarding chicken is even further outside the realm of normalcy. (Mobile users can click here to see video.) Check out the full story at FOX 13.
