    The president of Chicago’s police union came to the defense of the pro-Trump rioters who stormed the Capitol Wednesday, arguing that referring to the the demonstrators as “treasonous” is “beyond ridiculous and ignorant.” In a phone interview Wednesday evening with Chicago public radio station WBEZ, John Catanzara, who leads the city’s Fraternal Order of Police, claimed that the riots, which led to four deaths and many more injuries, was the result of “a bunch of pissed-off people that feel an election was stolen, somehow, some way.” “There was no arson, there was no burning of anything, there was no looting,...

    Donald Trump = William Wallace. The tragic hero who fought for his 14th century "Deplorables" against overwhelming odds vs an arrogant ruling class! Trump faced with great courage and determination the cesspool that is the kingdom DeeCee. The cesspool of DeeCee now wants to do to Trump the 21st Century equivalent to what the King of England did to William Wallace. They demand a public execution with much torture and pain! We hear such calls all over Left media and their minions! Representative Hank Johnson D-Georgia said yesterday in a radio interview... "Trump must be made an example of, so...

    A man in the UK was filmed kicking a teenage girl in the face because he was upset she wasn’t wearing a mask. Before he knew what happened, a brave bystander slammed him to the ground and stomped on his head. In the beginning of the viral video, a couple is heard arguing with a fellow passenger on the UK public transit bus. “All I’m saying is put your mask on!” the man screamed at the 16-year-old girl. “I’m not being racist but the virus is more common in Black and Asians. Put your f***ing mask on.” The girl tried...

    ..... Pratt is the only surviving Australian winner of the George Cross — the country’s highest civilian award for bravery. The equivalent award in the newer Australian honours system is the Cross of Valour, an award that has been made to only five Australians. Pratt, a 21-year-old policeman and married just three months, was on his way to have a haircut when he earned his medal. He drove his own car, on a day off and unarmed, into the front door of a Clifton Hill bank when he saw three armed and masked bandits enter the bank on June 4,...

    A municipality in Japan celebrated the 80th anniversary of the rescue of Jews by a local diplomat with a bake sale. The benefit, which began this week in Japan’s Gifu district, will continue until Sept. 10 and its proceeds will go toward commemorating Chiune Sugihara’s actions in Japan, Lithuania and beyond, Kyodo News reported Thursday. The district had planned to hold a benefit concert but had to switch to an online sale of cupcakes because of social distancing measures connected to the coronavirus. From July 18 to Aug. 28, 1940, Sugihara, an intelligence officer and consul serving in Lithuania, issued...

    A Texas father rescued his 4-year-old daughter from a massive, 12-foot alligator by throwing her over his backyard fence, according to US media reports. Andrew Grande’s daughter and son were playing with a babysitter behind their home, when Grande spotted the largest alligator he had ever seen heading toward his children, who were fishing and catching crabs near a canal. Suddenly, a nearly 600-pound alligator began approaching them. Grande reportedly dashed from his home, grabbed his daughter and threw her over the fence, while his son and babysitter ran to the other side. The rescue was just in time. The...

    After each long day of working on the United States’ pandemic response, the nation’s top infectious-disease expert power-walks through his Northwest Washington neighborhood with his wife and their daughter’s dog. Recently, Anthony S. Fauci’s nightly jaunts through the neighborhood where he has lived since 1977 have taken him past at least a dozen signs bearing his name — tokens of appreciation for his staid service on the White House coronavirus task force. “I have been, for so long, a quiet, inconspicuous person in my neighborhood, and now there are signs up telling me that they love me,” Fauci marveled on...

    A woman from Cornwall is being hailed a hero after saving a family from drowning … while topless. As one of Jessica Layton’s friends put it, “not all heroes wear capes, some of them don’t even wear bikini tops”. The 28-year-old from Penzance was sunbathing on naturist beach Pedn Vounder, near Porthcurno, yesterday (Tuesday, June 23) when the drama happened. She told Cornwall Live: “It was just after 3pm and the tide was coming in. I decided to go for a final dip before going home." “I was topless in the sea when I saw two young women struggling to...

    LACKAWANNA COUNTY, Pa. -- An area veteran is tossing his hat into the political ring, announcing he is running for Congress. Staff Sgt. Earl Granville posted a video on his website Thursday morning explaining why he is running as a Republican for Congress in the 8th District against incumbent Democrat Matt Cartwright. The 8th Congressional District covers much of northeastern Pennsylvania. Granville joined the Pennsylvania National Guard in 2001 and went on to serve tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He was severely injured in an attack in Afghanistan and lost his leg.
