'Judge-shopping' alleged in Freddie Gray case

Defense attorneys for the officers charged in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray are accusing prosecutors of misconduct by "judge-shopping" to get a search warrant approved.

In the latest filing in the case, the defense attorneys cite a police memo turned over by prosecutors that indicates an April 24 application for a warrant to search the officers' phones was rejected by a District Court judge, who found it lacked probable cause.

O’Malley HAMMERS Trump, Lays Out Immigration Policy’s Core Principles At NCLR

2016 Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley — while speaking at the National Council of La Raza’s annual conference — simultaneously laid out the three core principles of his “detailed immigration policy” while bashing the entirety of the Republican field for “vilifying ‘New Americans’ … and fighting tooth and nail against immigration reform.”

The former Maryland governor began his speech by first noting that, “the genius of America lies in not where you come from, but where you’re going… We were once all strangers in this land, and we must all help each other if we are to succeed.”

After elaborating about his own family’s immigrant history — “my grandfather’s first language wasn’t English” — O’Malley outlined the three core principles of his policy:

Baby Gets a Set of Pink Glasses and This Is Her Reaction to Seeing Her Parents’ Faces for the First Time

An Ohio mother took her baby to the doctor last month because the little girl hadn’t started crawling yet.

There the doctor conducted a few tests and found out why the baby likely wasn’t attempting to get up on all fours and move — she couldn’t see very well.

Mother Jessica Sinclair wrote on Facebook that her daughter’s eyesight is “+7.00 in one eye and +5.00 in the other.”

In early June, she got baby Piper a set of pink glasses.

Illegal Immigrant Nabbed In Calif. Cold Case Killing

An illegal immigrant from Mexico doing time in a federal prison for unlawfully reentering this country is set to appear before a judge next week over his alleged involvement in the killing of a homeless woman 18 years ago in California.

Linda Louise Archer, 43, was beaten to death Aug. 16, 1997, in her campsite off Highway 101 near Castillo Street.

On Thursday, the Santa Barbara Police Department announced that the suspected killer, Manuel Salmeron Manzanares, 36, formerly of Santa Barbara, was arrested on suspicion of murder last month upon his release from federal custody.

The key to cracking what had been classified a cold case was DNA evidence submitted to the California Department of Justice Bureau of Forensic Services laboratory -- and on Feb. 4, 2013, DNA from the Archer case was found to match that of a profile in the FBI's Combined DNA Index System.

"The matched profile was that of Manzanares, a federal inmate in custody for illegally re-entering the United States after previously being deported as a convicted felon," according to a statement from Santa Barbara Police Sgt. Riley Harwood.

Dog who started life with taped snout now getting photo shoot and new family

In mid-May the world was shocked to hear about Caitlyn, a young Staffordshire Bull Terrier, who was found with her mouth taped shut. The abused pup was rescued by Charleston Animal Control Officers and has since undergone several emergency surgeries and medical treatments to repair her lips, tongue and snout.

These days, the 15-month-old girl is frolicking like a celebrity on beaches, and posing for photographers with several handsome firemen for an annual charity calendar for the organization that helped save her life, the Charleston Animal Society.

One of the firefighters Caitlyn was seen making friends with was Josh Allen of the St. Andrews Fire Department. Organizers for the calendar say Allen visited with Caitlyn a few days prior to the shoot to have some time bonding with her. And it shows. The two look super happy and natural together.

Prager: Left-Right Differences-- Part IV

Here’s a difference between Left and Right that is rarely noted despite the fact that it is at least as important as any other and even explains many of the other differences.

At the core of left-wing thought is a rejection of painful realities, the rejection of what the French call les faits de la vie: the facts of life. Conservatives, on the other hand, are all too aware of these painful realities of life and base many of their positions on them.

One such example was the subject of my first column on Left-Right differences: whether people are basically good. When liberals blame violent crime in America on poverty, one reason they do is that liberal beliefs since the Enlightenment have posited that human nature is good. Therefore, when people do truly bad things to other people, liberals believe that some outside force — usually poverty, racism and/or unemployment — must be responsible, not human nature.

Liberals find it too painful to look reality in the eye and acknowledge that human nature is deeply flawed. This is especially so because left-wing thought is rooted in secularism, and if you don’t believe in God, you had better believe in humanity — or you will despair.

Another fact of life that the Left finds too painful to acknowledge is the existence of profound differences between...

Obama Commutes Prison Sentences of 46 Federal Drug Offenders

Ahead of two events this week where he will talk about criminal justice reform, President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 46 federal drug offenders.

Obama released a video on Facebook about the decision on Monday.

“We are at a moment where good people in both parties, Republican and Democrats, and folks across the country are doing around ideas to make the system work smarter, to make it work better,” Obama said. “These men and women were not hardened criminal, but the overwhelming majority were sentenced to at least 20 years, 14 of them had been sentenced to life, for nonviolent drug offenses.”

Pro-Tehran Lobby Demands Iran Be Given Ballistic Missiles

A pro-Tehran advocacy group long accused of concealing illicit ties to the Iranian regime is lobbying Congress in support of a demand that America repeal a United Nations arms embargo limiting the Islamic Republic’s ability to stockpile arms, including ballistic missiles, which could be used to carry nuclear payloads, according to a copy of an email sent by the group to various lawmakers.

The National American Iranian Council (NIAC), which has long been suspected of acting as Tehran’s lobbying shop in Washington, D.C., sent lawmakers an email on Friday asserting that “the Iranian arms embargo will need to be disposed of as part of a final agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.”

The email comes roughly a week after Iranian diplomats issued a similar demand during ongoing talks in Vienna between world powers and Iran. The new condition has been blamed for grinding negotiations to a halt, as diplomats blew through a third self-imposed deadline this weekend.

The NIAC email on ballistic missiles is in step with Iran’s potentially deal-breaking demands.

A team promoting A&E’s new horror series “Damien” crashed a Christian protest that typically takes place every year across the street from San Diego’s Comic-Con.

The promoters countered “Jesus saves” and “Jesus Will Rise” slogans with posters and shirts that read, “From Flames, Damien Will Rise” and “The Beast Rises,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Additionally, street teams handed out stickers, pins with “666” on them and pamphlets directing Comic-Con guests to visit a site that warns visitors, “[Damien] is the only way to deal with the coming end.”

Pentagon Readying Plan To Lift Transgender Ban

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pentagon leaders are finalizing plans aimed at lifting the ban on transgender individuals in the military, with the goal of formally ending one of the last gender- or sexuality-based barriers to military service, senior U.S. officials told The Associated Press.

An announcement is expected this week, and the services would have six months to assess the impact of the change and work out the details, the officials said Monday. Military chiefs wanted time to methodically work through the legal, medical and administrative issues and develop training to ease any transition, and senior leaders believed six months would be sufficient.

During that time, transgender individuals would still not be able to join the military, but any decisions to force out those already serving would be referred to the Pentagon’s acting undersecretary for personnel, the officials said. One senior official said the goal was to avoid forcing any transgender service members to leave during that time.

Advil, Aleve Raise Heart Attack Risk: FDA Warns

The U.S Food and Drug Administration on Thursday strengthened the warning labels for widely used painkillers like ibuprofen and naproxen, saying they can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.

The FDA is asking people to think carefully about their use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), particularly if they've already had a heart attack, according to a consumer update on the agency's website.

The agency said it is taking this action based on recent data that shows the risk of heart attack or stroke can increase even after using NSAIDs for a short time.

"They used to say they might cause risk of heart attack or stroke. Now we are saying they do cause increased risk of heart attack and stroke," FDA spokesman Eric Pahon told NBC News.

In particular, people should avoid taking multiple products that contain NSAIDs, according to the revised FDA warning.

Common over-the-counter NSAIDs include ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and naproxen (Aleve), but NSAIDs also can show up in combination medicines like multi-symptom cold products.

S.C. Capitol grounds also hold African-American History Monument

COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - An online petition has surfaced on the website change.org, calling for the removal for the African American Monument on State House grounds.

The petition states that if the Confederate flag is removed from the State House grounds, then the African American Monument should be removed as well, as this would violate the 2001 bi-partisan compromise.

That compromise allowed for the Confederate flag to be removed from the dome to the Confederate Soldier's Monument and saw the African American Monument erected in 2001, as a result.

Mini Ice Age: Scientists Warn The Sun Will 'Sleep' In 2020

New study claims to have cracked solar cycle prediction

The Earth could be headed for a 'mini ice age' researchers have warned.

A new study claims to have cracked predicting solar cycles - and says that between 2020 and 2030 solar cycles will cancel each other out.

Astronomers have been counting sunspots for centuries, and they have seen that the solar cycle is not perfectly regular.

The new model of the Sun's solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun's 11-year heartbeat.

It draws on dynamo effects in two layers of the Sun, one close to the surface and one deep within its convection zone.

Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the 'mini ice age' that began in 1645, according to the results presented by Professor Valentina Zharkova at the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno.


'We found magnetic wave components appearing in pairs, originating in two different layers in the Sun's interior,' she said.

'They both have a frequency of approximately 11 years, although this frequency is slightly different, and they are offset in time.

'Over the cycle, the waves fluctuate between the northern and southern hemispheres of the Sun. Combining both waves together and comparing to real data for the current solar cycle, we found that our predictions showed an accuracy of 97%,' said Zharkova.

Bill Cosby's art collection to remain on view at Smithsonian

WASHINGTON (AP) - Over the past seven months, as sexual misconduct allegations against Bill Cosby mounted, a top Smithsonian official met privately with museum directors across the sprawling complex on the National Mall to decide what to do about an exhibit showcasing Cosby's private art collection.

While many companies and universities were distancing themselves from the comedian, Smithsonian officials ultimately concluded the exhibit should continue.

"First and fundamentally, this is an art exhibit," Richard Kurin, the Smithsonian's undersecretary for art, history and culture told The Associated Press. "So it's not about the life and career of Bill Cosby. It's about the artists."

Clintons Ordered To Give Depositions About Emails

Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been ordered to give depositions in a civil case investigating the pair’s growing email scandal.

Mrs. Clinton will giver her deposition on the morning of July 28 in Washington, and Mr. Clinton will give his the following morning, according to copies of the notices of deposition reviewed by The Washington Times.

The case, filed by Freedom Watch founder and former federal prosecutor Larry Klayman, alleges the couple committed criminal violations under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).

According to a statement from Freedom Watch, the suit alleges Mrs. Clinton, the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic nomination, covered up these crimes by destroying her personal emails sent during her time as Secretary of State.

Mr. Klayman alleges in his lawsuit that the Clintons — through mail and wire fraud, and various false statements — misappropriated documents that he requested under the Freedom of Information concerning the Mrs. Clinton’s involvement in releasing Israeli war and cyber-warfare plans and practices.

The lawsuit, filed in March, claims that Mrs. Clinton orchestrated the release to thwart Israeli plans to preemptively attack Iranian nuclear sites.

Antipsychotic Use Rising Among Teens and Young Adults

A growing number of teens and young adults are being prescribed anti-psychotics, a new study suggests.

In particular, it appears they’re being used to treat attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – a condition for which the powerful drugs are not approved.

The percentage of teens using anti-psychotics rose from 1.10 percent in 2006 to 1.19 percent in 2010. Use among young adults ages 19 to 24 rose from 0.69 percent to 0.84 percent, the study found.

With roughly 74 million children under 18 in the U.S., these small percentages add up to large numbers of medicated kids.

“Great caution should be exercised in the use of anti-psychotics, especially for young children,” said lead study author Dr. Mark Olfson, a research psychiatrist at Columbia University in New York.

Troopers Investigate Two Robberies at Newark Toll Plaza

Newark, DE - Delaware State Police Robbery Unit detectives are currently investigating a pair of strong arm robberies that occurred at the I-95 toll plaza in Newark this past weekend.

The first incident occurred on Friday, July 10, 2015, at approximately 8:30 p.m., as a male suspect exited a vehicle which had stopped at a northbound toll booth located at the I-95 toll plaza in Newark. The suspect, who had his face concealed by a mask, then reached into the booth and proceeded to remove an undisclosed amount of cash before returning to the vehicle and fleeing in a northbound direction. The 48 year old male employee, who was working in the toll booth at the time of the robbery, was not injured. No weapon was displayed or implied.

The suspect was described as a black male 23-27 years of age. He was approximately 5’07” tall with a thin build, and was last seen wearing a dark colored long sleeved shirt and dark pants. No further physical or clothing description is available.

Lois Lerner Linked To Leader Who Targeted Scott Walker

The official behind the IRS' conservative nonprofit targeting scandal, Lois Lerner, was friends with the Wisconsin regulator who targeted Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's conservative aides and allies.

Lerner and Kevin Kennedy, director of the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, were friends for 20 years and traded emails on campaign finance, politics, and personal matters between 2011 and 2013, emails obtained by the Wall Street Journal reveal. That was the same time frame the IRS increased its harassment of conservative groups and Wisconsin prosecutors conducted a secret John Doe probe of Walker's allies, raising the troubling question of whether they coordinated their investigations.

After Walker's victory in a recall election, Lerner's long time friend Kennedy helped Milwaukee County prosecutors conduct an onerous, several-year investigation into Walker's political allies, complete with secret subpoenas for phone, text message and email records and armed, middle of the night raids on Walker associates' homes.

The investigation never uncovered any wrongdoing, and eventually federal Judge Rudolph Randa ordered it to end, ruling that the investigation had violated the First Amendment rights of Walker's associates. They were "pursuing criminal charges through a secret John Doe investigation against the plaintiffs for exercising issue advocacy [free] speech rights," Randa wrote.

The judge wrote that investigators also targeted Republican candidates for state Senate and that "all or nearly all right-of-center groups and individuals in Wisconsin who engaged in issue advocacy from 2010 to the present are targets of the investigation," a violation of the First Amendment.

It's Showtime For Pluto

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – Pluto, reveal thyself, and Earthlings, enjoy the show.

On Tuesday, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft will sweep past Pluto and present the previously unexplored world in all its icy glory.

It promises to be the biggest planetary unveiling in a quarter-century. The curtain hasn't been pulled back like this since NASA's Voyager 2 shed light on Neptune in 1989.

Now it's little Pluto's turn to shine way out on the frigid fringes of our solar system.

New Horizons has traveled 3 billion miles over 9½ years to get to this historic point. The fastest spacecraft ever launched, it carries the most powerful suite of science instruments ever sent on a scouting and reconnaissance mission of a new, unfamiliar world.

Says principal scientist Alan Stern-- "We're going to knock your socks off."

Russia Developing ‘Carrier Killer’ Submarines

The Russian Navy is investing in two new submarines, one of which is being described by the head of Russia’s state-owned shipbuilding corporation as a “carrier killer,” according to the independent Moscow Times.

The second boat would be designed to protect Russian ballistic submarines from enemy attack.

The announcement continues an active period in Russian submarine development. Following the 1991 breakup of the Soviet Union, the Russian Navy, like the country’s other military services, went into decline as resources were stripped away by a collapsing economy, poor morale, and inept leadership.

Vladimir Putin ran for the Russian presidency in 2012 on the promise of rebuilding the Russian military. The Navy’s building program is part of Putin’s broader $356 billion military upgrade program, intended to run through 2020, according to the report.

In 2013 new fourth-generation class submarines were deployed by Moscow: the Borei, which carries ballistic missiles capable of striking intercontinental targets, and the Yasen-class attack boat. Both submarines are significant upgrades to previous, Soviet-era counterparts.

Hillary's Top Aide Has Yet To Turn Over Benghazi Emails

A longtime Clinton aide may be stonewalling a State Department request for private Benghazi-related emails despite a court order demanding she produce them.

Huma Abedin, Clinton's deputy chief of staff at the State Department and current campaign staffer, is the only former aide to Secretary Hillary Clinton that has failed to turn over emails in response to a request from the State Department, court documents show.

Cheryl Mills, Clinton's chief of staff at State, and Jake Sullivan, her deputy, submitted personal emails to the agency June 26 in response to letter sent by the agency earlier this year to Abedin, Mills and Sullivan.

The letters demanded the three aides "make available to the Department any federal records that they may have in their possession, such as emails concerning official government business sent or received on a personal email account while serving in their official capacities with the Department," the State Department said in court filings.

Everybody Into The Pool! Why Is The 2016 GOP Field So Big?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Who yelled “everybody into the pool?”

After all the candidate announcements, after all the speculation about who’d go first and who’s yet to jump in, one question remains in this summer BEFORE the election year: Why are so many Republicans running for president?

Surely, the soon-to-be-17 announced GOP candidates don’t all think they will become president.

But it’s easy for a politician to get caught up in the hype and yell “cowabunga!” in a year when there’s no incumbent seeking re-election and no Republican who seems to have an inside track to the nomination.

Cops Threaten Man Holding 'John 3:16' Sign At Ballpark

Christian surrounded, 'forcibly removed' under threat of arrest

San Francisco police are accused of intimidating and threatening to arrest a man who was holding up a “John 3:16″ sign in front of AT&T Park prior to a Dodgers-Giants baseball game.

The man, Gino Emmerich, has hired attorneys with the Rutherford Institute to take his case. They filed suit in late June against the city, county, its police department and the four officers who allegedly tried to squelch his First Amendment rights.

Emmerich was standing on the public plaza in front of AT&T Park where a camera crew from ESPN was filming a pre-game show before the Giants-Dodgers game. The ESPN producer told him not to flash his sign in view of his cameras or he would be arrested.

Holding “John 3:16″ signs at public sporting events has been a part of American sports culture for decades.

Rollen Frederick Stewart, also known as Rock ‘n’ Rollen and Rainbow Man, is believed to have started the tradition when he became a fixture in American sporting events in the 1970s and 80s. He would appear on camera wearing a rainbow-colored afro-style wig and holding up signs reading “John 3:16.

What happened after this student was CLEARED of rape is truly a crime

Emma Sulkowicz, 22-year-old Columbia University graduate, alleges she was anally raped and violently attacked in her dorm room by another student on the first day of her second year in August 2012, during what began as a consensual sexual encounter.

Columbia University cleared Sulkowicz’s accused rapist of responsibility. But it was not over.

In protest of the university’s handling of the case, during the summer of 2014 visual arts major Sulkowicz created what she called, “Mattress Performance,” a performance art protest piece. She purchased a mattress — the same dark blue, extra-long twin kind from Columbia’s dorms, similar to the one on which Sulkowicz alleges she was raped — and defined the rules of engagement for the performance. Written on the walls of her studio in the university’s Watson Hall, these included that Sulkowicz had to carry the mattress when on university property; that it had to remain on campus when she was not there; and that she was not allowed to ask for help in carrying it, but if help was offered she could accept.

In early September 2014, Sulkowicz began carrying the mattress on campus. Sulkowicz said the work would end when the accused was expelled from or otherwise left Columbia; she would take the mattress to her graduation ceremony if necessary. She kept a diary throughout, amounting to 59,000 words by the end of the project.

For 2nd Time in a Week, Illegal Immigrant Accused Of Hit-and-run

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Federal immigration officials tell ABC11 a second illegal immigrant suspected of causing a serious wreck this week will not be allowed out of jail.

Earlier this week, the I-Team covered the return of Efren Roblero to the streets of Wake County.

Roblero is accused of driving drunk and causing a crash that injured two people over the weekend. He managed to post his $75,000 bond and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials approved his release from jail.

Now, another illegal immigrant, Antonio Arellano, is accused of hit-and-run causing serious injury, driving without a license, and reckless driving.

"I see here that you have two prior convictions for impaired driving and that you have been removed from the United States by a previous immigration proceeding," Wake County District Court Judge Ned Mangum told Arellano during the suspect's first court appearance on the charges Friday afternoon.

During that appearance, Mangum nearly tripled the bond on the 31 year old.

An ICE official said because Arellano has two prior DWI convictions in Wake and Randolph Counties he falls under the "priority" category for the Homeland Security agency.

That means, if Arellano posts his $32,000 bond, he still won't be able to leave jail because the feds will detain him.

Agenda 21 is Real, Far Creepier than Area 51, and is Coming Soon to a Suburb Near You

You’ve heard of Area 51: the super secret government site around which all manner of far-fetched conspiracy theories have swirled for decades. You may not have heard of Agenda 21, which would be unfortunate because Agenda 21 involves something like an actual conspiracy, though one out in the open and far creepier than Area 51.

Ground zero for Agenda 21 at the moment is that home to all things moonbat: Seattle, Washington. The city has been engaging in secret talks to eliminate single-family zoning, which will move families out of houses and into dense housing units instead. This comes a year after micro-housing began replacing regular housing in Seattle with tiny apartments averaging only 145 square feet, known as aPodments, sometimes with shared kitchens.

This transition is part of Agenda 21. It all started 23 years ago with a non-binding resolution for an “Agenda for the 21st Century” at a U.N. Earth Summit, which President Bush signed, along with 172 other countries. Agenda 21 emerged out of an imaginary concern that the earth would run out of resources, includes a fear of overpopulation and crowding out other species, and has grown to encompass such vague environmental causes as “climate change” and redistributing resources in the name of social justice. Ultimately, its goal is a radical transformation of society. The movement uses feel-good words like “livable communities” and “smart growth” to suck people in to thinking it’s positive and harmless.

Agenda 21 is amorphous and pervades every aspect of life and law, and there’s no limit to how far it will go. There can always be fewer fossil fuels, fewer single-family homes, fewer cars, more recycling and more space for a particular species to roam. The ultimate goal is to eliminate most private property, along with all those nasty, dirty cars and appliances that run on power.

NAACP Leader Says Baltimore Mayor Told Him Not To Host Republicans

Hassan Giordano, a leader of a Baltimore branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), said he was told that hosting Republican outreach in his office is off limits.

Mr. Giordano, who calls himself “not the average conservative” because of his Muslim faith and criminal record, told The Daily Caller of irate phone calls he received for trying to work with Republicans.

“When National found out that I was bringing the governor [Larry Hogan, a Republican], the lieutenant governor [Boyd Rutherford, a Republican], and Dr. [Alveda] King to Baltimore and the Sandtown NAACP office, they literally called and said, ‘There’s no way in the world they can come into our office,’ ” Mr. Giordano told The Daily Caller on Friday.

“Then the Mayor [Democrat, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake] — who kind of gave the us the NAACP office in Sandtown — called and said, ‘No, you’re not allowed. And then, the president [of the Baltimore NAACP branch, Tessa Hill-Aston] called me and she said, ‘You know they’re having a fit because you’re bringing in too many Republicans.’ “

Most Americans Want Feds to Punish Sanctuary Cities

Nearly two-thirds of likely U.S. voters want the Department of Justice to take legal action against so-called sanctuary cities that do not enforce most national immigration laws, according to a new survey.

Rasmussen Reports polled voters and found that 62 percent of them want the government to step in and punish cities for essentially providing safe haven for illegal immigrants. That amounts to 79 percent of Republicans, 65 percent of unaffiliated voters, and 43 percent of Democrats.

Fifty-eight percent of those voters would like to see the federal government cut off funding to more than 200 such cities across the nation, a figure that includes 79 percent of Republicans.

Sanctuary cities have been in the news after a San Francisco woman was allegedly shot and killed by an illegal immigrant who was taking refuge in the city. He had been deported five times, and the shooting appears to be a random murder.

Ex-CIA Analyst: Russia-NATO Standoff 'Extraordinarily Dangerous

The escalating tensions between Russia and NATO mark an "extraordinarily dangerous time" and could intensify further, a leading analyst has said, according to Business Insider.

"We are in an extraordinarily dangerous time right now because both Russia and NATO are starting to exercise substantial military activity in close proximity to each other in Eastern Europe and the Baltics," said Robert Dannenberg, a CIA veteran and analyst for Goldman Sachs' Office of Global Security.

Dannenberg believes that Russia is a top strategic threat to the United States and that there is a high risk that the situation could escalate based on Russia's policies toward Ukraine.

"Many of the channels of rapid military and intelligence communications that were carefully constructed during the Cold War have been dismantled, lamentably, mostly from the U.S. side," he said, according to Business Insider.

A ceasefire in February froze the front lines between separatist and Ukrainian forces, but violence between the two sides has continued. On July 9, a Ukrainian soldier was killed in a shootout.
