Human remains have been found in the hunt for fugitive Brian Laundrie, the 23-year-old fiance of murdered Gabby Petito, five weeks after he went on the run in an alligator-infested Florida swamp. The grim discovery was made on Wednesday afternoon in the Carlton reserve in Florida, near Laundrie's home, along with a camping backpack. The 'articles' discovered were found in a portion of the park that had previously been underwater. They were identified as belonging to Brian by his parents (left), who helped with the search on Wednesday after keeping to themselves for weeks. The pair have refused to speak publicly about the case and they have also refused to speak with Gabby's grief-stricken family in New York. If the remains are identified to be Brian's, it brings a somber end to a hunt for a killer that has captivated the nation. The Sarasota County Medical Examiner's Office is at the scene.
Trump announces he is launching his own social media platform called TRUTH Social to 'stand up to the tyranny of big tech': Ex-president's enterprise will also create subscription video service
Former President Donald Trump said he will launch his own social media network called TRUTH Social in early 2022. The new Trump Media & Technology Group said it will create a rival social network to the current 'liberal media consortium' and 'fight back against the 'Big Tech' companies of Silicon Valley, which have used their unilateral power to silence opposing voices in America.' Trump, who will serve as TMTG's chairman, said, 'I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech. We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced. 'This is unacceptable. I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all. I'm excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH Social and to fight back against Big Tech. Everyone asks me why doesn't someone stand up to Big Tech? Well, we will be soon!'

'I started working (at the local frozen yogurt shop) at the age of 13. I waited tables, babysat, and piecemealed jobs together to cover odds and ends. I worked all my life and saved when and where I could—but even that was a luxury—because usually it was about making ends meet and having enough to pay my rent and put gas in my car.'

'What are we doing? This is the USA dammit': Biden urges warring Democrats to come together to pass his $2trillion spending package and whispers that it will cost nothing and won't add to the deficit
Joe Biden showed his frustration with warring Democrats delaying the passage of his Congressional agenda on Wednesday, urging the moderate and progressive wings of the party to come together to pass his trillion dollar package of social programs. 'What are we doing? This is the United States of America, damn it,' Biden said, his voice raising during a speech in Scranton designed to promote both his infrastructure deal and his social spending program. 'These bills are not about left versus right or moderate versus progressive,' he said, acknowledging the interparty war he is dealing with as he tries to pass his agenda. 'Or anything that pits one American versus another.'
Off the rails! Joe Biden is blasted for telling false story about his encounter with Amtrak conductor friend for the FOURTH time after it was revealed president's version of events happened after rail worker had DIED
President Biden on Wednesday repeated a story about being congratulated by an Amtrak conductor for traveling more than 2 million miles by rail even though the train employee was dead at the time the event supposedly took place. The president recalled the anecdote on Wednesday during an appearance touting his 'Build Back Better' infrastructure plan in his native hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania. It was the fourth time Biden repeated the false story as president. He also told the story when he was running for the presidency after locking up the Democratic Party's nomination last year. 'Amtrak is here, and they can tell you...you should name half the line after me,' Biden joked during a speech at the Electric City Trolley Museum in Scranton (left) on Wednesday. The president chose the setting in order to highlight his working class roots in hopes of building public support for his domestic agenda, which has been bogged down due to Democratic Party infighting over the scale of government spending. Biden and his family are seen aboard a train in Wilmington, Delaware (top right). Biden is seen bottom right in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he told the same story last year.

Magnificent Mile no more: Chicago becomes the latest city to be blighted by shoplifting after its left-wing AG stopped prosecuting shoplifters who steal goods worth less than $1,000
Chicago is the latest city to be hit by rampant shoplifting and its Magnificent Mile, the once highly-populated retail destination, is now dotted with empty storefronts as businesses are being driven away by the brazen thieves. The city has been plagued by a string of robberies and a wave of crime in the past few months, as some say that the city's 'soft-on-crime' policies embolden the thieves. The issue may only grow worse as at least 50 cops have been put on unpaid leave for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
At least NINE bodies have been discovered during the search for Gabby Petito and the manhunt for Brian Laundrie in the two months since she was reported missing
At least nine bodies have been found across the country during the manhunts for Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie which made national headlines and increased interest in missing person cases. Several bodies have been found either in the locations of the Petito and Laundrie manhunts or because of increased interest but many families are still searching for their loved ones. The Gabby Petito Foundation was recently started in her honor 'to address the needs of organizations that support locating missing persons and to provide aid to organizations that assist victims of domestic violence situations.' Authorities have continued to search for Laundrie, the sole suspect in Petito's case, since he was reported missing on September 17.
'America would do better if everyone stopped smoking marijuana': 'Cold and calculated' Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz blames POT for massacre as he pleads guilty, apologizes to victims' families as he tries to dodge death sentence
Nikolas Cruz (left in court on Wednesday morning) has pleaded guilty to killing 14 students and three staff dead in a mass shooting at a high school in Parkland in 2018 - the deadliest attack ever at a US high school. Cruz will enter guilty pleas to 17 counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder in the Valentine's Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in a Florida court this morning. Now 23, Cruz was a 19-year-old expelled student with a history of mental health and behavioral issues at the time of the 'cold, calculated and premeditated' killings, the Broward State's Attorney Office said in court documents. He had previously admitted to using a lot of marijuana and had taken a lot of the prescription tranquilizer Xanax. At his sentencing Cruz asked whether he could address the victims and their families. 'May I take off my mask?' he asked before saying: 'I am very sorry for what I did and I have to live with it everyday. If I were to get a second chance I would do everything in my power to help others.' 'I do not care if you don't believe me,' he said to the court, adding that he now gets 'nightmares sometimes...and can't even watch TV anymore'. Cruz said as he held back tears: 'I hate drugs and I believe this country would do better if everyone would stop smoking marijuana... I'm trying my best to maintain my composure and I just want you to know that I'm really sorry.'
PIERS MORGAN: How dare the Biden White House and its media cheerleaders blame the American people for expecting goods and food in their stores. If Trump was still in charge they'd be screaming from the rooftops
Imagine if President Trump had won the 2020 election? Then imagine what the media reaction would be to America, the world's supposedly most powerful nation, currently grinding to a shuddering halt with a vast flotilla of cargo ships stuck off the Californian coast, and a chronic shortage of food-delivery drivers causing empty shelves to appear right across the country? Trump would rightly be excoriated for failing on perhaps the single most important duty of a US President - ensuring the American people can get food and essential provisions. But instead, the liberal-dominated mainstream media once again refuses to treat President Biden in the same brutally critical way it treated President Trump. In fact, instead of berating the current occupant of the White House for this calamitous state of affairs, journalists are going out of their way to give Biden a pass and do what he also loves to do - blame someone else. Even worse, that someone else is the American people!

The moment Vietnam's 'real-life Tarzan' saw the modern world for the first time after 40 years living in the jungle is shown in new released after his death from cancer aged 52
Ho Van Lang survived in the Vietnamese jungle for more than four decades after he and his father fled society in 1972 when US carpet bombing during the Vietnam War killed half of his family. New stunning footage shows Lang's efforts to reintegrate into the 'civilised world', including his first travel aboard an aeroplane and seeing the ocean for the first time. In the clips, a visibly stunned Lang is seen with glazed eyes as he stares out of the window of the aircraft for the first time. In later footage, he beams with joy as he walks along a beach and watches the ocean waves gently roll back and forth, pointing with amazement as he creeps closer to the water. Lang had lived a remarkable life and made headlines across the globe - but filmmaker Alvaro Cerezo, an explorer who returned to the jungle with Lang to live there for a week together, believes discovering 'modern life' probably had fatal consequences for the 'real-life Tarzan'

MEGHAN MCCAIN: Trump may not care that attacking the memory of a great American is cruel, unhinged and unpatriotic but he should care that it's exactly the character defect that will repel decent people from ever giving him a second term
There are figures in political history who, no matter how much we ideologically disagree with them, have earned the respect of the American public for their service to our country. It is basic humanity to respect to honor their memory when they pass and recognize their accomplishments. There is polling data to show that the few times Trump starts losing support from Republicans is during times of such particularly grotesque, personal and macabre attacks on veterans. Yes, attacks on Americans such as my Dad. And now, as of yesterday, on the first black Secretary of State and decorated four-star General Colin Powell. He was a great American patriot who served his country in uniform and out of it and will be remembered in our history books forever. This is all that matters and I wish his family solace and peace during this difficult time. What President Trump thinks of their loved-one his hardly going to register amid the grief of his passing. But why can't President Trump help himself? It's the sick, twisted, classless part of his demented psyche that will forever keep me recoiled from him, despite agreeing with him on many things. Vile comments about deceased generals only serve as a reminder of the deeply flawed and seemingly moral-less character of President Trump. The Achilles heel that took him out last time around.

Their infant daughter was miraculously unhurt during the deadly shooting, which police are describing as targeted shooting.

Curtis, 62, revealed this summer that her daughter, who formerly went by Thomas, is trans and now goes by Ruby.

Curtis also insisted that she is not 'proselytizing' by sharing her family's story or 'trying to force-feed something to people.'
