    A local youth hockey coach had a meltdown on the ice after he was ejected from a game by a referee. The incident happened during a game Saturday night between the 12-and-under teams of the Manchester Junior Monarchs and the Springfield Junior Pics at The Bog Ice Arena in Kingston. In the middle of the second period, a Monarchs coach began banging on the door and shouting profanities at the referee. The Monarchs received a minor bench penalty for the coach's actions, but he kept shouting at the referee, who ultimately decided to eject that coach from the game. Witnesses...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is leaning into her plans to withhold sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate, amplifying her position Tuesday that she won't deliver them until she knows what a trial in the upper chamber will look like. Pelosi, writing in a letter to her Democratic colleagues, called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to promptly unveil the resolution that will lay out the guidelines for the trial centered on President Trump's contacts with Ukraine and whether they warrant his removal from office. The Democratic leader dug in on her plans to withhold the articles...

    The Baldwin family was feeling the Christmas spirit at the Epcot’s Candlelight Processional as the choir sang and celebrity guest soap star Susan Lucci read the nativity story. “I turned to my husband [Claude] and I said, 'Aren’t you glad you came? And he said, ‘I just had a really great time,’" said Emma Jean Baldwin, according to court transcripts. “And that is when ... all hell just broke loose.” Claude Baldwin, then 74, said he was attacked by a teenage boy and injured at the end of the show on Dec. 22, 2011. However, the boy’s family argued it...

    Last week in a dinner speech at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., Princeton professor Robert George had some advice for social and religious conservatives: “You must fight.” It was an exhortation that does him no good in the academic world. It was fantastic. One of the people cheering at the end was William Barr, who delivered his own call to arms last month in a speech at Notre Dame. “I think we all recognize that over the past 50 years religion has been under increasing attack,” he said. Traditional believers have felt the “force, fervor, and comprehensiveness of the...

    Trump’s 'lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship' By Evan Sayet in his article "He Fights" My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on...

    The attorney for two of three men charged with assaulting two black women last week at a North Side gas station denied Thursday that the defendants are racist and rejected calls to upgrade the charges against them. “My clients are not racist,” lawyer David Shrager said during a news conference at his Downtown offices. “They love that community. They feel terrible that people think this was based in some way, shape or form on racial discrimination when it was not.” Mr. Shrager represents Balkar “Bill” Singh, 40, of Harmar, and Sukhjinder “Simon” Sadhra, 35, of Ross. He said that police...

    Fake news and social media posts are such a threat to U.S. security that the Defense Department is launching a project to repel “large-scale, automated disinformation attacks,” as the top Republican in Congress blocks efforts to protect the integrity of elections. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency wants custom software that can unearth fakes hidden among more than 500,000 stories, photos, video and audio clips. If successful, the system after four years of trials may expand to detect malicious intent and prevent viral fake news from polarizing society. “A decade ago, today’s state-of-the-art would have registered as sci-fi — that’s...

Xu said he had to go into hiding for several months in 2017 after claiming he was assaulted by two strangers who represented traditional martial arts. The 40-year-old returned...

    This is the craziest fight yet — men beating women, women slapping men — while out for a fun day at Disneyland with the children. A family went to Disneyland with the children and then got into a violent brawl in front of the children. The men and women were slapping and punching each other. This is absolutely nuts. The poor children. Several people tried to intervene during the four minutes of mayhem, with a Disneyland janitor being the first park employee to try to break up the violence. The Anaheim police were called when Disney security couldn’t stop these...

    From a bed at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis on May 4, Gabriele Grunewald posted a photo of herself on Instagram asking for some “brave vibes” as she fought an infection, which forced her to miss her own “Brave Like Gabe” 5K to raise money for rare cancer research. “It’s not lost on me that maybe this is one of the most poignant ways to show just how critical research is,” she wrote. “Cancer is nothing if not incredibly inconvenient and we need more options.” Just five weeks later—10 years after she was diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC), a...

    In a recent episode of the Crackpot Podcast, James LaFond and Lynn Lockhart discuss a video of a vagrant gang attack on an NYPD officer in a subway. The officer successfully defends himself using a front push kick called a ‘teep‘ in muay thai as well as a collapsible baton called an ASP. The officer is a large man with good balance, footwork, and vision. He was helped by citizen good samaritans. The video demonstrates the increasing boldness of criminals against police. These were vagrants who uniformly live a life of hard drug abuse, violence, and petty theft. However, criminals...
