    Nikki Haley on Saturday said the death of “hero” Russian opposition leader Aleksei A. Navalny demands a response from former President Donald Trump. She said the outspoken Navalny had died at the hands of President Vladimir V. Putin and her former boss Trump needed to “answer to that,” the New York Times reports. Haley made her call while speaking with reporters outside her rally at a park in Irmo, S.C., praising Navalny for calling out Putin for corruption and fixing elections.

The victim was not harmed, and the brutes were unable to snatch her purse as well since the doorman of a building at 74th Street and Madison Avenue intervened, ABC7 reported. “I did what I...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida sent 85 pallets worth of cargo to Israel on two successful plane launches under an emergency executive order from Gov. Ron DeSantis. Departing Tuesday, DeSantis’ office said the planes will reach Israel Wednesday. The planes are carrying medical supplies, clothing, hygiene products and toys. “With the lack of leadership in Washington, we are stepping up to help our allies in Israel who are in need of supplies and our support,” DeSantis said. “As we continue to bring back Americans who were stranded in Israel when the war began, we will also keep sending the necessary health...

    An Israeli woman has been hailed a hero after saving kibbutz Nir Am from Hamas as infiltrating terrorists began to invade.

Lieberman, who has been part of the security detail in the region since December 2022, heard explosions erupting early Saturday when Hamas launched the unprecedented and deadly attack on Israel, according to Walla News. She quickly realized that the sounds were different to those she's heard during the usual rocket attacks...

    Marine 1st Lt. Harvey “Barney” Barnum jumped to the ground when he came under fire during an ambush in Vietnam that killed his radio operator and commander. Collecting himself, Barnum realized he was now the highest-ranking officer of a rifle company he’d just joined. He called in artillery and, amid gunfire, dragged the commander to safety, where he died in Barnum’s arms. Then he proceeded to mount a counterattack, oversee evacuation of the wounded and lead the unit’s eventual break out to rejoin the battalion. To launch a counterattack, he brandished a .45-caliber handgun and told the others to follow...

    France is calling him “the backpack hero”, a young Catholic pilgrim on a walking tour of cathedrals who came face to face with the man who stabbed several children in a park in Annecy. Henri, a 24-year-old management and philosophy student, was near the playground in Le Paquier Park when he saw the man attacking children in a stroller as their mother desperately tried to shield them on Thursday. Video footage shows him trying to block the assailant with one of his two backpacks, pursuing the man into the playground, and throwing one of his bags at the attacker. So...

    Harvard graduate Dr. Joseph Ladapo has been called a “quack” and “unqualified” for his traditional, pro-science approach to healthcare; unlike a certain Supreme Court justice, he can tell you the differences between a man and a woman. Thankfully though for a man experiencing a cardiac arrest on the grounds of the Tallahassee capitol, Ladapo doesn’t specialize in “gender-affirming care” or “equity” medicine — he’s a real, and apparently very good doctor. See below: Dr. Joe is a stud. https://t.co/8OJwCZJA01News: @FLSurgeonGen Joseph Ladapo saved a man’s life at the Capitol. The man Tuesday morning suffered a cardiac event in the Capitol...

    President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has awarded the Hero of Ukraine to a soldier whose execution by machine gun fire was filmed by Russian forces. The soldier was identified as Oleksandr Igorevich Matsievskyi by Ukraine’s security services after speculation about his identity followed the publishing of the grim video that captured his death. In his nightly address, Zelenskiy said Matsievskyi had become a symbol of resistance to the Ukrainian people. “Today I conferred the title of Hero of Ukraine upon Oleksandr Matsievskyi, a soldier,” he said. “A man whom all Ukrainians will know. A man who will be remembered for ever. For...

    The hill ^ | 02/26/2023 | HANNA TRUDO
    Jimmy Carter’s post-presidential life outshined the time he spent at the White House and won him the praise of the progressive left — a more dominant part of the Democratic Party 42 years after the end of his presidency. Carter, 98, is a figure beloved by many Democrats in 2023 despite the difficulties of his administration. He’s respected for creating a footprint as a global humanitarian and peacebuilder in a bitterly divided world. To liberals, his imprint on their movement is especially profound. “President Carter promoted progressive issues well before they became mainstream,” said Joseph Geevarghese, executive director of Our...
