Jason Harley Kloepfer, 41, from North Carolina, US, was shot in the chest and arm after Cherokee County police responded to reports of a gunfire on December 12 at around 11pm. Cops believed Kloepfer, who identifies as disabled, was the alleged gunman and holding a hostage inside his trailer - despite being inside with his wife. In the shocking footage, Kloepfer is seen inside the trailer opening the door to police. Kloepfer, and his wife Alison Mahler, both...

Wade ruling. During an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “America Reports,” Warner “completely” condemned the leaking of the draft opinion and said that people serving in public life should not feel verbal nor physical threats from “outrageous extremists.”

    Rudy Giuliani’s law license has been suspended. In a ruling handed down by the New York State Supreme Court Thursday, the state’s Attorney Grievance Committee successfully moved to have the former New York mayor’s license suspended. Specifically, Giuliani’s actions related to his defense of former President Donald Trump were to blame, according to the court. “We conclude that there is uncontroverted evidence that respondent communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed effort at...

    I wanted to purchase a new saute pan to replace my old one. My cooking gear is very important to me, so I did a lot of research until I chose the pot I wanted. And then I found this very expensive pot ON SALE! Whoo-hoo! I tried to order the pot on Wayfair, only to find that other pot connoisseurs had beaten me to all available stock at that terrific sale price. I'd have to wait for the next shipment. That date kept changing, getting delayed. I did some searching and found the pot was also being sold at...

    Amy Coney Barrett has been the subject of all sorts of misleading attacks, and progressives have invented ridiculous process reasons to deny her a confirmation vote. When there is so much nonsense to knock down, we go into overdrive to do it. We are now in the same mode that we were in during the Kavanaugh fight — on high alert, rebutting all the shoddy journalism and tendentious arguments. Which is why I’d like to ask you to contribute to our flash fundraiser.

    House Judiciary Chairman Adam Schiff said that President Trump’s alleged misconduct can’t be proven at the ballot box but only through his impeachment. The California Democrat is one of the House’s impeachment managers and made the remarks during his opening statement on Wednesday. “If not remedied by his conviction in the Senate and removal from office, President Trump’s abuse of his office and obstruction of Congress will permanently alter the balance of power among the branches of government,” the 59-year-old congressman said. Schiff accused Trump of attempting to “use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election.” “For...

According to Fox: The development comes as Fiona Hill, a former special assistant to the president who worked on European and Russian affairs, is set to give a deposition next week. Fox News has reached out to Hill...

    What he order? Fish filet… and a whole lot else. President Donald Trump‘s undying love for fast food made its way back into headlines this week when his ex-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and another ex-top aide David Bossie released their new book, Let Trump Be Trump, revealing the president’s McDonald’s dinner order while on the campaign trail. The Washington Post, which obtained an advance copy of the book, reported that he once ordered “two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted.” As our sister publication Extra Crispy points out, the fast food chain does not offer a “chocolate malted”—but...

    A vermin infestation has overrun the kitchen of a suburban Chicago Veterans Affairs hospital and is reportedly so severe that cockroaches routinely crawl across countertops as cooks prepare meals. The insects have even found their way into patients’ food, employees say. The bug invasion has attracted the attention of a U.S. senator who is demanding to know how the VA is fixing the problem. It’s just the latest scandal at an agency rocked by allegations of abuse, incompetence and the needless deaths of veterans who wait years for medical appointments.
