    A Russian commander was reportedly killed in Crimea following a Ukrainian missile strike in the region. On Monday, the Russian independent outlet Astra said on its Telegram channel that a Russian air defense base located near Mount Ai-Petri in Crimea was hit with "an early morning missile attack" by Ukrainian forces. "The commander of the military unit was killed," Astra reported. "On the mountain, there is a 'secret' military air defense base of the 3rd radio technical regiment of the Russian Armed Forces." The outlet identified the Russian military commander as Alexander Kulakov. Another Russian soldier was also killed in...

    A Florida congressman apologized Monday for invoking an insensitive stereotype in a joke aimed at Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. “Why am I getting the feeling that she wanted to eat dog with Kim Jong Un?” Democratic Rep. Jared Moskowitz wrote on X in response to a clip of Noem promoting her upcoming book on “CBS Mornings.” Noem’s book includes a false claim about a meeting with the North Korean leader and a true anecdote about her killing her “untrainable” 14-month-old hunting dog. Moskowitz was called out by Politico reporter Nicholas Wu,...

    Governor Kristi Noem (R-SD) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that she had to kill her dangerous dog, adding that President Joe Biden’s dog “has attacked 24 Secret Service people.” Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: Okay, so you don’t agree with Mr. Trump’s statement there. I want to ask you again about the book. I- I know you know, this question is coming, because there’s been such an enormous backlash about your revelation that you shot and killed a Wirehair Pointer or named Cricket, who was 14 months old. You say in the book, she came from another...

    South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R), who has been under the microscope this week for an anecdote about killing her dog, defended her actions Wednesday, saying she shot the “dangerous” pup in order to protect her children. “It was a dog that was extremely dangerous,” Noem said Wednesday on Fox News’s “Hannity.” “It had come to us from a family who had found her way too aggressive.” “We were her second chance. And she was — the day she was put down was a day that she massacred livestock that were part of our neighbors,” she continued. “She attacked me....

    Hillary Clinton is the latest Democrat to troll South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) after she detailed in a forthcoming book how she shot her dog. “Still true,” Clinton wrote Monday on the social platform X above a 2021 post that read, “Don’t vote for anyone you wouldn’t trust with your dog.” Noem, who has been discussed as a possible running mate for former President Trump, has come under fire in recent days after The Guardian reported on an excerpt from her book that detailed how she shot “Cricket,” her nearly 14-month-old dog. Noem shot the wirehaired pointer in a...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) pushed back on comparisons between the politically damaging dog stories that plagued both his and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s (R) potential bids for the White House. During Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, a decades-old story about him tying his dog Seamus to the roof of his car on a family road trip became a political headache for the then-Republican candidate for the White House. Now, more than a decade later, Noem faces a similar political firestorm that could doom her chances of being selected as former President Trump’s running mate in 2024. But Romney rejected the...

    Gov. Kristi Noem has “no shot” at being Donald Trump’s running mate after revealing in a forthcoming book that she shot and killed her puppy, sources close to the 45th president tell The Post. *** “She was already unlikely to be picked as VP, but had a shot,” the person said of Noem, who has been widely projected to be on Trump’s shortlist. “After this, it’s just impossible.” Noem writes, according to the Guardian, that she executed Cricket, a 14-month-old wirehaired pointer, after determining that the pooch’s “aggressive personality” made her “untrainable” as a hunting dog. “It was not a...

    Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg dismissed the idea that Washington, DC, is experiencing a rise in crime, pointing out that a “lot of energy” was going into painting the narrative. During an interview with MSNBC host Jen Psaki on Sunday, Buttigieg highlighted how he was able to “safely walk” his dog in the nation’s capital without any problems. Buttigieg, like many other elected officials, is provided with a security detail.

    An adorable dog named Daisy somehow got her head stuck in the middle of a wheel and had to be rescued by New Jersey firefighters. “Daisy found herself stuck in the rim of a tire at home,” the Franklinville Volunteer Fire Company said of Thursday’s bizarre call, without explaining exactly how the four-legged furball got there. The poor lab looked forlorn and wet during the rescue op, where “Iinitial efforts to free her with soap and water were unsuccessful,” the fire service said.

    MSNBC launched another WON’T SOMEONE PLEASE ASSASSINATE TRUMP? dog whistle this week by directly comparing the former president to Adolf Hitler. On Wednesday, while discussing the results of Super Tuesday, Morning Joe regular, fabulist, and plagiarist Mike Barnicle talked about how he’s “rereading” some books about World War II and discussed the famous D-Day climb made by the Second Airborne Battalion up a cliff called Pointe du Hoc. Then he said this: A straight-up cliff, 125 feet to a German pillbox. And he went right at the Germans, right at the Germans. Fifty percent casualty rate. Why did they do...

Morrison, who studied at Yale and Oxford, according to a since-deleted social media profile, is accused of violating New York’s Agriculture and Markets law, the sources said.

Phillips was hospitalized following the attack and had to have his right arm amputated but things went from bad to worse. The three dogs owner, Roy Goodman, has...

    According to a news release issued by Animal Care Services, this is the longest punishment for animal cruelty. Frank Javier Fonseca received his first sentence a couple of months back, and his earlier felony convictions led to a larger sentence. The judge convicted Fonseca of crimes of retaliation as well as drug possession- both of which Texas heavily frowns upon.

    We’d like to have the DeSantis of yesteryear; the one fresh from his first Governor’s race who defied partisan worries by championing the environment and other bygone middle-of-the-road-type policymaking. But what it seems we’re getting is the vengeful, angry DeSantis who will be the public official equivalent of a drunk dad returning from a all-night bender itching to kick the family pooch. Sources have told me that DeSantis has implemented a new edict that departures from his administration are on hold until at least Summer, if not next year. Anyone who leaves would be blacklisted, according to sources. After DeSantis...
