    A New York City Firefighter sustained a concussion and several broken teeth Saturday after police say he was assaulted while trying to stop a group of teens from harassing an elderly couple. The 38-year-old off-duty firefighter was traveling on East 86th St. in Manhattan at around 9:25 a.m. Saturday when he noticed six teens “harassing” an elderly couple, a spokesperson with the New York City Police Department told Fox News. The man reportedly tried to intervene -- and police say that’s when one unidentified member of the group punched the firefighter “with a closed fist,” knocking him to the ground.

    FULL TITLE: 'The best horse did NOT win!' Trump blasts controversial Kentucky Derby reversal as 'political correctness' after winning horse is disqualified for 'impeding' another's path President Donald Trump added his outrage on sunday to the national dustup over Saturday's controversial Kentuky Derby finish, complaining that disqualifying the apparent winning horse for interfering with another is a sign of 'political correctness' run amok. 'The Kentuky [sic] Derby decision was not a good one. It was a rough and tumble race on a wet and sloppy track, actually, a beautiful thing to watch,' Trump wrote on Twitter. 'Only in these days...

    In the 1997 movie “L.A. Confidential,” one character said of a police sergeant who was enduring a grueling situation: “I wouldn’t trade places with (him) right now for all the whiskey in Ireland.” It’s easy to echo that sentiment in regard to Chicago police officers. As if the city’s maddening number of homicides isn’t enough of a burden, actor Jussie Smollett — on whom Chicago law enforcement had wasted considerable resources and countless hours — was inexplicably cleared of all charges in an apparent hate-crime hoax. And now, we’ve come to discover, it seems Chicago police can’t even arrest a...

    Cold weather no longer is acting as a deterrent to the marauding mobs of teenagers (of no particular demographic characteristic, according to Chicago mainstream media) roaming through Chicago's showcase shopping district along Upper Michigan Avenue around the Water Tower.  News of the attack could not be ignored, because the famous Water Tower Place Mall had to be closed and because the mob sent an innocent bystander waiting on a subway platform to the hospital. CWB Chicago, the feisty neighborhood blog that does not shy away from facing Chicago's descent toward anarchy, reports: At least four people were injured and CTA Red Line traffic...

    Back in the mafia’s heyday, FBI and IRS agents had a set of surveillance rules. If one mobster showed up in town, pay notice. If two arrived, be suspicious. If three or four were in the same vicinity, something was going down. And if five or more headed to the same neck of the woods, a meeting of consiglieri or La Cosa Nostra’s council was likely happening. (This, because there were always five families in New York and some adjunct families elsewhere that made up the council’s leadership.) There also was another rule of thumb: Mobsters would always have the...

    The mob attack on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home this week by radical Marxists – leaving his home with a broken door and vandalized with leftist slogans – has triggered widespread shock on the part of most decent Americans. For those aware of the way “Antifa” elements operate internationally, however, the incident was nothing new. Pro-democracy and right-leaning political activists, journalists, and artists 90 miles from our shores, fighting for their rights in communist Cuba, have faced similar mob attacks on their homes for years. Unlike the Carlson incident, in Cuba, the government actively organizes the mobs. The riots...

    Thousands of protesters packed Times Square on Thursday evening to demonstrate against President Trump firing Secretary of State Jeff Sessions — a move they view as a threat to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 Trump presidential campaign. The crowd of about 4,000 formed in Times Square at about 5 p.m. and headed south on Broadway toward Union Square. Some held signs that read “Trump is not above the law” and “Protect Mueller!” The crowd also chanted “No excuse! Must recuse!” as they rallied in Times Square, according to video of the protest.

    I am trying to find video of Obama saying that. It is widely acknowledged that he did say it on June 13, 2008 in Philadelphia, but YouTube, Google and all of the MSM have carefully scrubbed the net of this video. Soon, they will deny he ever said it. Just like that video of Al Gore saying that the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely gone by 2013.It's GONE - never to be seen again. I found an archive of Obummer speeches, but it's also been removed from there: ObamaDownloads.com

    Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Tennessee, condemned a group of protesters forcibly removed from a Sunday rally, tying them to her Democratic opponent, former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen. "This Sunday afternoon, the liberal angry mob made it clear they are active in Tennessee and will stop at nothing to disrupt civil political discourse," Blackburn wrote in a statement. "They resisted law enforcement, and they interrupted a moment of silence. Phil Bredesen is their leader, and their behavior is despicable."
