    The station added that the deceased man was from West Palm Beach, and his name has not been released. The Palm Beach County medical examiner will determine the cause of death, WPEC said. Man killed after threatening to open fire at party in West Palm Beach youtu.be Anything else?Earlier this month a Jacksonville homeowner said he was worried about his safety and his neighbors' safety when he shot a mud-covered intruder "acting like he was possessed" who broke into his residence, threatened him, and then left the home and went back into the neighborhood. Officials said a homeowner in Pensacola won't face charges after firing a rifle at home invaders in July. Video showed one of the crooks smiling outside the home before the group entered it by force — and the same video showed them all running for their lives seconds later when the homeowner opened fire on them.
    The mother of Gabby Petito said Brian Laundrie lied about why he killed her daughter in the notebook confession found on his remains. Speaking on the Today show Nichole Schmidt called Laundrie's purported confession that he killed Petito as an act of mercy after she grievously injured herself an 'absolute' lie. 'That's ridiculous. We know how she died' she said, calling Laundrie's claims '100% untrue.' She said the confession story he wrote in his notebook was merely a part of the 'good guy' character he always masqueraded as. 'That was his character, even in his last moments he wanted to make sure he looked like the good guy.' Schmidt previously shared an image on Twitter that said 'narcissists rewrite history', along with hashtags including 'the truth will be revealed', 'selfish' and 'justice for Gabby.' Petito's remains were found in Grand Teton National Park in September after she vanished in August while on a vlogging road trip with Laundrie. Investigators determined she died by manual strangulation and had been dead three to four weeks. Her death was ruled as a...
    (CNN)Finally, gun enthusiasts found themselves a good guy with a gun. Jill FilipovicAfter more than 45,000 gun deaths in 2020 and more than 24,000 already this year, one legally armed bystander -- a young man carrying a handgun in an Indiana mall -- was able to use his weapon to kill a mass shooter. Conservatives are applauding this as a victory for their grand theory of public safety: A nation so awash in weapons that a "good guy with a gun" will be around to take out a bad guy with a gun. Or as the National Rifle Association put it: "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." But on closer inspection, the math doesn't quite work. Even with a "good guy" present, the Indiana mall shooter was still able to kill three people, injure two and traumatize many others. That's not a victory against gun violence; it's a horrific scenario by any measure. And even the "good guy" with the gun wasn't exactly following the rules --...
    The man said that the suspect then charged straight at him, still wielding the knife, so the man pulled out his gun and shot the suspect four times. Once the suspect fell, he and the clerk both called police. “I don’t think I honestly had a choice. He already had a knife at her throat, he could’ve pulled out something bigger than what I had. Then, you would’ve had two people dead instead of one,” he said. When police arrived, emergency medical teams transported the suspect — later identified as Lance Bush, a 26-year-old homeless man from St. Louis — to the hospital, where he died. Bush is believed to have robbed at least one other gas station earlier that morning by holding a knife to the throat of the attendant and forcing her to give him money from the register. The black SUV he was driving had also been reported stolen on Friday. “Taking somebody’s life is not an everyday thing, neither is saving someone’s life,” the man with the gun said. When asked why he elected to confront...
    ERLING HAALAND has revealed the message he received from ex-Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after signing for rivals City. The Norwegian, 21, was finally unveiled by the Premier League champions after they completed a £51million move from Dortmund. 1Erling Haaland has revealed the message he received from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after he signed for Man CityCredit: Instagram @erling.haaland Haaland, and new manager Pep Guardiola, are now hoping that the star continues his rise to one of the world’s most-deadliest strikers at the Etihad. However, one man who knows the hotshot better than most is his fellow countryman and old head coach Solskjaer. Haaland burst onto the scene under the United legend Norwegian side Molde as a 16-year-old and scored 20 goals in 50 games to earn a move to RB Salzburg.

    "Wasn't the 'good guys with guns' thing referring to bystanders, not police? If both armed police and armed civilians aren't the way to respond to shooters, what's the way?" asked reporter Zaid Jilani. Others pointed out that there actually were "good guys with guns" that the police held back from going into the school to save the children the police had abandoned. "Except there was a good guy with a gun not to mention parents that tried to intervene. The cops you seem to want to let off the hook are the ones who tried to stop people from reaching the shooter. Instead of putting Uvalde PD under the fire you go after law abiding citizens," read one tweet. On Tuesday, more video from the Uvalde massacre was released and showed the killer entering the school. It also showed how police officers waited out side the classrooms where shots were still being heard. Here's more about the newly released Uvalde footage: Uvalde surveillance video shows how police responded to shooter www.youtube.com...
    They are both billionaires who believe in strong leadership - so it's not hard to imagine Bernie Eccleston and Vladimir Putin as friends.  And in case there were any doubts, the ex-Formula One boss, 91, put them to bed today in an astonishing defence of the warring Russian president, 69.  In a bizarre interview with Good Morning Britain, the 5'2 entrepreneur said he would 'still take a bullet' for Putin - who also happens to be below average height, measuring an estimated 5'7.  The father-of-four laid it on thick, branding the warmonger a 'first class' and 'sensible' person - despite the tens of thousands of innocents slain in his illegal invasion of Ukraine.  Ecclestone, however, said such civilian losses were 'not intentional', and even blamed Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky for the war, saying he should have tried harder to 'talk to Mr Putin'.  The comments sparked fury online, while Foreign Secretary Liz Truss condemned the 'apologist' remarks as 'shocking'.  They are both billionaires who don't believe in democracies, so it's not hard to imagine Bernie Eccleston and Vladimir Putin as...

Point Molate is only a start to repay tribes Re. “Tribe to own Point Molate,” Page A1, May 29: I like the idea of Point Molate going back to a Native American tribe for $400. The city of Richmond bought the land from the Navy for $1, so the return on investment is excellent, despite the city spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and land maintenance costs. When one considers reparations (not even mentioned in the article) to Native Americans for the loss of their land, vast tracts of other good lands should be returned to them. If the island of Manhattan was purchased for about $24, I think we as a country can afford to return many more pieces of property to the original inhabitants.

    So much for the good guy with a gun. That, you will recall, was NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre’s preferred solution to America’s epidemic of firearms violence. “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun,” he said, “is a good guy with a gun.” He said this on Dec. 21, 2012 — one week after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School that left dead six adults and 20 children ages 6 and 7. Americans were grieving and demanding action, and this was his answer. The “good guy with a gun” would set things right. To no one’s surprise, it hasn’t turned out that way. The latest example can be found in Uvalde, Texas — where two adults and 19 children were slaughtered last week at Robb Elementary School while police waited under orders from their incident commander for 78 minutes before engaging the shooter. The good guy with a gun — actually, “guys,” plural, “guns,” plural — dawdled while people died. Police initially concealed this bungling by releasing false and misleading information about the siege. If the...

    On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight,” Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) argued that it has been proven that if a shooter “has weapons of war, and has the unbelievable automatic weapon,” then a law-abiding citizen with a gun responding “doesn’t work.” Jackson Lee said, “We have no universal background checks here in the United States or Texas. And so, right in my district, in the NRA convention, they were selling guns without background checks at the private gun shows. They don’t care about domestic abuse. They don’t care about intervention on violence, no laws. And they don’t have any red flag laws and they certainly have not banned assault weapons. So, what I would say is that our state is a partner in the massacres that have occurred, from El Paso, to the church, to now this devastating blow to America’s own dignity. Because they have let down their people. And I, for one, will not tolerate this exhausting and poor response, which includes Donald Trump’s absolutely absurd comment that what you need when you see guns is...
    MSNBC host Chris Hayes on Friday excoriated the National Rifle Association and its supporters for stubbornly continuing to insist, despite the heartbreaking details of law enforcement’s bungled response to the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas this week, that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. In the past day, a much more accurate account of the mass shooting has emerged than what law enforcement officials had initially told the public, some of which was false. Reporting by The Wall Street Journal on Thursday and The Washington Post on Friday has helped illustrate a tragic failure of judgment, as 19 officers inside the school delayed confronting the gunman by “nearly 45 minutes” while children trapped inside the classroom with him made repeated, desperate calls to 911. (NBC News also reported Friday that when Border Patrol officers ultimately did move toward the gunman, they were ignoring local police who told them not to even enter the school.) The director of the Texas Department of Safety, Steven McCraw, admitted at a news...
    Just 72 hours after a gunman perpetrated the deadliest school shooting in his state’s history, podcaster and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas spoke Friday at an event for the National Rifle Association. On Tuesday, an 18-year-old gunman entered Robb Elementary School, where he murdered 19 children and two teachers. Police entered the school just minutes later, but took fire and fell back. The shooter had locked himself in a classroom as 19 police officers remained outside. They chose to wait for a Border Patrol tactical unit that arrived roughly an hour after the gunman entered the school. The unit killed the shooter. Speaking at the NRA’s Leadership Forum, Cruz said the remedy for school shootings is increased security, including “bulletproof doors.” Cruz: We need serious funding to upgrade our schools, to install bulletproof doors and locking classroom doors pic.twitter.com/pMoNE2P3gg — Acyn (@Acyn) May 27, 2022 He also said every school should only have “a single point of entry” with “multiple armed police officers.” Cruz went on to repeat an oft-used line from firearms enthusiasts responding to the call for...
    The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) reported Thursday that there was no armed school resource officer at the Uvalde school when a gunman entered — through an unlocked door — and began killing 19 children and two teachers. As Breitbart News reported, a DPS spokesman overturned much of what the public had been told before during a stunning press conference on Thursday. The proverbial “good guy with gun” had not failed; he simply never had been present. As local NBC affiliate KXAN reported: The shooter who killed at least 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School on Tuesday walked into the school without being stopped by anyone, the Texas Department of Public safety said Thursday. It corrected a statement Wednesday by DPS Director Steven McCraw that a Uvalde ISD police officer was the first person to engage the shooter. Instead, on Thursday it said there were not Uvalde ISD police on campus. Uvalde CISD, located 84 miles outside of San Antonio, is one of the smaller school districts in Texas. The school district has its own police...
    Johnny Depp's ex-girlfriend Kate Moss is gearing up to take the stand in his $100 million defamation trial against Amber Heard on Wednesday - after the Aquaman actress namedropped the supermodel during her testimony earlier this month - and it may be the nail in Heard's coffin. Famously-private Moss, 48 - who rarely discusses her personal life and has previously said that she 'hates' doing interviews - will be testifying publicly in support of her former beau, and is expected to shut down Heard's claim that Depp once pushed Moss down the stairs.  Moss' testimony could possibly throw a wrench in Heard's case since it will give Depp's legal team a chance to quell rumors about their relationship - an opportunity which only arose after Heard herself brought Moss up in court. New York-based entertainment lawyer Nicole Heff said that Moss' testimony could have a 'big effect' on the jury, while speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com.  She called it a 'mistake' and 'misstep' on Heard's part, adding that Moss could 'bring Heard's testimony into question' and make the jury unable to 'trust...
    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro defensive tackle Cameron Heyward has been selected as the 2022 Good Guy Award winner by the Professional Football Writers of America. Heyward, the 18th Good Guy Award winner, is the second member of the Steelers franchise to get the award, joining Jerome Bettis, who won the inaugural honor in 2005. The award is given to an NFL player for his qualities and professional style in helping pro football writers do their jobs. Heyward did not miss a media availability during the 2021 season, and those who covered the Steelers noted he doesn’t avoid answering tough questions. He was cited for consistently going “above and beyond’’ to build an honest rapport with those who cover the team. “We give out the Chief Award — named after team patriarch Art Rooney — for cooperation with the media every year, and it got to the point where we had to alter the rules to not allow back-to-back winners,” said PFWA Pittsburgh chapter president Mark Kaboly of The Athletic. “If not, Cam Heyward would’ve won every award...
    A dog in Cornelius, North Carolina, set out on an important mission at Robbins Park on Tuesday when some ducklings found themselves in a tight spot. Charlie is a flat coat retriever who loves accomplishing tasks for his master, Queen City News reported Wednesday. “He’ll do anything you ask him to do. He’ll deliver newspapers when he walks by somebody’s house. Or he’ll carry flowers to somebody if you ask him to do it,” explained his owner, Jorge Serrano. Flat-coated retrievers were described as tireless, trainable lake hunters who specialized in retrieving downed waterfowl, according to the American Kennel Club’s (AKC) website. “Flat-Coats were once Britain’s most popular retriever, before being overtaken by Labs and Goldens, and was once called the ‘Gamekeeper’s Dog’ because of its widespread use on the sprawling estates of the English gentry,” the club said. Video footage from last year showed the breed being presented to judges: Meanwhile, Serrano said Charlie was always ready to help, but what he rescued from a storm drain at the park got him a lot of attention. Neighbors watched as...

    Rapper Travis Scott is spending $5 million on initiatives that include promoting safety at live concerts, but an attorney for victims of the deadly Astroworld Festival is accusing the artist of violating a gag order issued by a judge as he faces billions in lawsuits. Scott, 30, dubbed the initiative Project HEAL.  It will allocate funds to already established charities, including his own Cactus Jack Foundation, TMZ reports.  As part of the efforts to rehabilitate his image, the Houston native says he's also donating to the US Conference of Mayor's Task Force on Event Safety. Scott is facing a massive combined lawsuit, which pooled together about 2,800 alleged victims seeking billions of dollars, after a crowd surge at his Astroworld Festival in Houston killed 10 people in November. The judge in the combined case issued a gag order last week so that the case can 'be tried in the courtroom and not on social media or with press releases or other statements to the media.'  Bob Hilliard, an attorney from Texas who represents 708 victims, accused Scott of violating the gag order...
    An armed school resource officer shot and wounded an alleged school shooter, and the officer himself was shot and wounded, at Kansas’s Olathe East High School on Friday morning. An administrator, a school resource officer, and a student — the alleged shooter — were injured in the incident, which occurred around 11 a.m., the Kansas City Star reported. “A student shot and wounded an administrator and a school resource officer Friday at a suburban Kansas City high school, and the student also was wounded when the officer returned fire,” KDSK pointed out. “Police said it was that school resource officer who shot the suspect,” KMBC noted. The school administrator and resource officer were both in “stable condition,” as of 2:30 p.m. local time, KSHB observed. After waiting anxiously, parents were slowly reunited with their kids, students at Olathe East High School this afternoon after a shooting at the school. https://t.co/UbQku6Rj2l pic.twitter.com/yaU57WP0TB — Tammy Ljungblad (@kctammy2009) March 4, 2022 Olathe Mayor John Bacon posted comments regarding the attack, praising the courage of the school resource officer, among others: Below is a statement...
    Former President Donald Trump praised Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) despite several reports speculating on friction between them. “He’s a good guy and he’s doing a good job,” Trump said in an interview with Michael Savage on Monday. Trump commented on DeSantis after Savage asked if the former president would consider choosing him as a running mate if he ran again in 2024. “I would consider a lot of people,” Trump replied, noting that Republicans had a wide range of great leaders in the country. The former president reminded Savage and his audience that he endorsed DeSantis in the Florida Republican primary for governor when he was only getting single digits in the polling. “Yeah, he’s good. I endorsed Ron when he was a three — three percent, you know?” Trump remarked. “I’m very strongly vested and invested in him.” DeSantis will be governor of Florida through 2026, but his widespread popularity in the state and his leadership role during the coronavirus pandemic have earned him wide praise from conservative activists. Trump has dismissed reports of “friction” between the two...
    A Detroit man charged for the brutal beating of his 75-year-old boss claims he and his victim are “like the best of friends” and that the incident was out of character for him. Yet the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said soon after arresting Keith Demetrious Taylor for the assault last fall that he has a history of violence, and related charges and convictions. Keith Demetrious Taylor (Oakland County Sheriff’s Office)  Taylor, 32, faced up to 10 years in prison after pleading no contest to one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder for the Oct. 5, 2021 attack that happened in Rochester Hills, allegedly stemming from a disagreement over pay.  However, Oakland County Circuit Judge Daniel O’Brien opted to give Taylor what some may consider a relatively light sentence, given the brutality of the assault —- captured on security video and broadcasted, in part, on local television news stations. Ordered to spend 240 days in jail with credit for 125 days served, Taylor was sentenced within the guidelines of zero to 17 months, the...

    In yesterday's Daily Mail, in the first part of an exclusive series about how to beat insomnia, renowned consultant neurologist and sleep expert Professor Guy Leschziner told how the pandemic has been driving another global health crisis: an epidemic of sleep problems. He explained how the most extreme forms of insomnia can lead to depression, type 2 diabetes, heart trouble and even Alzheimer's. But it's not all bad news. Today, in the second of his four-part series which continues in tomorrow's Daily Mail, Prof Leschziner shares the latest research on techniques for dealing with sleeplessness, outlining an approach that holds the key to a better night's sleep. Over 15 years as a neurologist specialising in sleep, I've treated every disorder under the sun (or perhaps I should say moon). I've helped people plagued by night-terrors that make them scared to go to bed, and teenagers who cannot wake up before early evening. And yet, fascinating – and frustrating – as these rare cases can be, the one sleep disturbance everyone wants to discuss is insomnia: chronic trouble sleeping. There's no...

    FOXBORO (CBS) — Matthew Judon has been a big hit in his first season with the Patriots, and that doesn’t end on the football field. Judon has also been extremely entertaining and open whenever he steps to the podium in Foxboro, and on Wednesday, he earned a special award for his work with the New England media. Judon was named the recipient of the sixth annual Ron Hobson Good Guy Media Award, given by Patriots media members to the player they deem “most helpful, available and accommodating” during a season. The award is named in honor of former Patriot Ledger sports writer Ron Hobson, who covered the Patriots from 1961 until his retirement in January 2010. Hobson was known as “The Humble One” among his fellow reporters.

    The panel on "The Five" blasted the mainstream media and Washington Democrats for gushing over actor Jussie Smollett's now-debunked claims of a Trumpism-induced racial hate crime attack on him in Chicago in 2019. A jury convicted Smollett Thursday of five counts of disorderly conduct — for each separate time he was charged with lying to police in the days after the alleged attack that has been deemed a hate crime hoax. On Friday, host Jesse Watters cataloged several prominent expressions of support for Smollett, many of which were made before the facts of the case emerged. He pointed to CBS News morning anchor Gayle King, who said following the supposed attack that there are "a lot of questions in this case, but I know that Jussie Smollett is a really, really good guy." "I just want justice to be served in this case," King said. Those sentiments were later echoed by ABC News anchor Robin Roberts, who also conducted a widely-circulated interview with the "Empire" star following the allegation when she said his "detailed account" had not changed. "Roseanne" star...
    Pressley walked away with only minor scratches on his arm.What else?In a news release, the Butler County Sheriff's Office confirmed that Pressley had "wrestled with the suspect" until law enforcement arrived. And during that time, Goins was able to get up and walk out to the parking lot where she found Vaughn under Pressley's knee. Goins told WLWT-TV that she was shocked by what had just happened and a little hurt, but she mustered up the energy to give the burglar a lecture: "I told him, I pointed at him and said, 'You know, if you needed something, all you had to do was ask.'" She added that she was a target from the minute she walked into the store due to her age and the fact that she was alone, and shared just how thankful she was that Pressley was so quick to jump into action in her defense. “You are truly a great person," she said in reference to Pressley. "I owe you more than I could ever thank you for and I want you to have...

    Judges increasingly rule that armed people frisked by police are not dangerous, reflecting gun rights laws that allow countrywide carrying of concealed weapons in public. Judge Jeffrey Sutton wrote in 2015 for the Sixth Circuit that a Toledo, Ohio, man can sue a city police officer for detaining him for openly carrying a semiautomatic handgun in his neighborhood. Ohio doesn't require gun owners to produce or even carry their licenses. Shawn Northrup and his wife were walking their Yorkshire terrier with their daughter and grandson when a motorcyclist challenged him for carrying a gun and called 911. The assumption that mere possession of a firearm constitutes a crime is crumbling. Jeffrey Bellin, William & Mary Law School"Ohio law permits the open carry of firearms. . . .and thus permitted Northrup to do exactly what he was doing," Sutton wrote. Courts in Arizona, Idaho and New Mexico have also found that having a gun isn't enough on its own to conclude that someone is dangerous. All but three states and the District of Columbia allow people to openly carry firearms in...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Good Samaritan who last week was struck by his own vehicle while helping out a stabbing victim has gotten his car back.

    Antonio Carlos Jr. is excited to fight the 2019 champion, Emiliano Sordi. Antonio Carlos Jr. is no stranger to the big stage. After defeating Tom Lawlor in April, Carlos Jr. faced UFC veteran, Vinny Magalhales in June. A victory would guarantee Carlos Jr. a spot in the tournament, while a loss would force him to wait for other outcomes to shake out to decide his fate. Eventually, the bout was ruled a no contest after an illegal groin strike was too painful for Magalhales to continue. Despite the unfortunate ending, Carlos Jr. was thrilled when he received word that he would be facing 2019 champion and ex-training partner, Emiliano Sordi, in the first round of the 2021 PFL playoffs. The bout is scheduled for August 19, which is the third week of playoff action. “As soon as my last fight ended, I found out I was going to fight Sordi,” Carlos Jr. told FanSided’s Amy Kaplan during the PFL press junket. “I know him, he’s a good guy, we’ve trained a little bit together. I saw his last fight, he made a...
    Aljamain Sterling says Petr Yan is ‘not a good guy’ ahead of rematch. When Aljamain Sterling walked into the Octagon to face champion Petr Yan he had many of the American UFC fans on his side. But when he walked out with the belt due to an illegal strike from Yan that disqualified the champ, he was suddenly the enemy. It’s more about how many training partners I can bring out. The time of day, that we’re going to fight most of the time those Abu Dhabi fights were like, three, four or five o’clock in the morning, that’s a big adjustment you got to make.” Next: 10 of the biggest fight cities in the world The beef between Yan and Sterling has been brewing since the controversy in the first fight and has spilled over on social media ever since. When asked if there was genuine hatred for Yan, Sterling wouldn’t say it’s that far, but there’s for sure some animosity. “He’s a shit talker. He’s not a good dude. He’s not a good guy, I don’t think he’s...
    Johnny Hurley (Photo courtesy of Cody Soules via Denver7)  Johnny Hurley carried a concealed weapon so he could defend himself and others should there ever be a threat, his friends said. When the moment came on Monday, he drew his weapon and charged toward a gunman in Olde Town Arvada only to be killed a short time later by a responding Arvada police officer, investigators said. Hurley was holding the gunman’s AR-15 after shooting him when the officer arrived, police said. Hurley’s death once again sparked questions about how Colorado law enforcement reacts to armed people who are acting lawfully in self-defense. Many of the hundreds of thousands of gun owners in Colorado keep their weapons in case they need to defend themselves or others. But in chaotic moments, police can mistakenly believe someone trying to help is a threat. “It’s a difficult thing,” said Pete Blair, executive director of Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training at Texas State University, which trains law enforcement officers how to respond to active shooters. “You’re asking people to make split-second decisions about who’s...
                        A delivery driver with a concealed carry permit thwarted a robbery attempt at a Papa John’s restaurant in New Carlisle, Ohio killing one of the suspects. The following is a transcript of the 911 call from the store to the dispatcher: Employee: “Papa John’s New Carlisle 410 North Main Street. Someone just broke in and they were shot in self-defense.” Dispatcher: “Ok, somebody just broke in?” Employee: “They came right in with weapons and tried to rob us. They’re still in here. There’s one shot and wounded on the floor. One of them ran out.” They had weapons. The one’s got a big crowbar, the other one had what looked like a knife. And they were sprinting towards us.It looked like a knife or like hedge clippers or something. They came sprinting in and ran up on us fast.” The 911 dispatcher then instructed the employees to remain in the store until emergency crews arrived. They attempted to coach the employees on providing life-saving medical aid to the...

    Charles Bronson as Paul Kersey in 1974’s "Death Wish." As the country deals with continuing controversies over gun-related violence, racial divisions tied to police actions, and bigotry against members of Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, the embrace of firearms and rationalizations of killing people in the street by some is tied to power narratives that have long, deep roots in American culture. The fear of being a victim of crime drives people to accept some truly awful ideas as truth. Because when one reduces crime policy to revenge fantasies where one can run over a protester without consequence, and general access to weapons is justified as being necessary in case “a good guy with a gun” needs to stop a madman, it doesn’t take much to realize it’s all built on a very deluded, but politically effective, fantasy. It’s a fantasy built upon long-held narratives of revenge that cast the average citizen as a lonely hero amid chaos, their gun simultaneously a symbol of freedom and savior from doom. This vision of American life accentuates a need for power that’s tied...
    Netflix’s new movie “Good on Paper” looks like it might actually be good. The plot of the rom-com from the streaming giant, according to the trailer’s YouTube description, is, “After years of putting her career first, a stand-up comic meets a guy who seems perfect: smart, nice, successful… and possibly too good to be true. (REVIEW: ‘Westworld’ Season 3 Ends With The Possible Deaths Of Multiple Characters) Give the trailer a watch below. It might surprise you. Generally speaking, I hate rom-coms. I think they’re incredibly stupid and rarely entertaining. That might be a rare opinion these days, but I stand by it. Most rom-coms absolutely suck. Having said that, as I’ve gotten older and my heart has softened up a shade, I’ll watch one if I’m really being pushed to. However, it better be damn good. Luckily for “Good on Paper,” it looks interesting. The concept of a guy faking his entire background provides for lots of content. So, if you’re looking for a change of pace with your significant other, “Good on Paper” might be just for...
    Sen. Lindsey GrahamLindsey Olin GrahamHouse conservatives take aim at Schumer-led bipartisan China bill There will be no new immigration law under Biden, unless he changes course McConnell safe in power, despite Trump's wrath MORE (R-SC.) sent out a series of tweets on Tuesday claiming that Israel is the “good guy” and Hamas is the “bad” as Hamas launched two rockets in continued clashes with Israeli armed forces.  Graham shared a Wall Street Journal article on the current tension in his post, claiming Hamas, a Palestinian militant organization that rules the city of Gaza, is a terrorist organization that is “hoping to kill as many civilians as possible" by launching rockets into Israel.  In response, Israeli Defense Forces respond with surgical strikes and try to limit civilian causalities as much as possible.In this fight it is clear — Israel is the good guy and Hamas is the bad.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) May 11, 2021 “In this fight it is clear — Israel is the good guy and Hamas is the bad,” Graham said in his post.  Graham also mentioned that the rockets that Hamas has fired at Israel are made by...
    Getty Andrew Wiggins, Warriors (right) Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins, like it or not, has been stuck with a narrative. It dates back to his early time with the Timberwolves, when both the organization and fellow players questioned his work ethic, leading to the pervasive presumption that Wiggins was uninterested in improving as a player and does not care much about winning. But team beat writer Connor Letourneau, speaking on the Warriors Off Court podcast, had a much different take on Wiggins’ dedication and offered up a previously unknown detail about Wiggins from just last month. Here’s what Letourneau said: I am so tired of hearing from Warriors fans and other people out there that this guy does not care, that he is apathetic, that he is lazy. … This is a guy, I don’t think this is out there, this is a guy who a couple weeks ago, his girlfriend was going into labor, he had her delay inducing labor so that he can play a regular season NBA game for the Warriors. And then immediately after the...
    MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace compared former President Donald Trump to the fictional serial killer “Dexter” during Tuesday’s broadcast of “Deadline: White House.” Wallace used the comparison to attack former Republican House Speaker John Boehner — who admitted that he had voted for Trump — and argued that as long as there were people willing to support Trump, the Republican Party was beyond saving. (RELATED: ‘Literal Carnage’: Nicolle Wallace Claims Outsiders Might See Republicans As The Most Destructive Force On The Planet) WATCH: Wallace mentioned former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who was very critical of former President Trump after the Capitol riot on January 6, and her recent comments indicating she would not run against Trump in 2024 if he chose to run. “I used to watch ‘Dexter,’ Michael Steele, and it was like, he would be such a good boyfriend if he wasn’t a killer. This is the sickness of the Republican Party,” Wallace said. “The sickness isn’t actually anyone with the last name Trump. The sickness is John Boehner, who’s, like, well, yeah, I liked...
    Meghan McCain tried her best to tee up John Boehner for an attack on President Joe Biden on Monday. The former Republican House Speaker refused to take the bait. “I’m worried we’re headed towards the most divided time in our nation,” McCain told Boehner, who was on The View to promote his spicy new memoir On the House. “President Biden has promised to usher in a new era of bipartisanship. So far he’s issued more than 50 executive orders and chosen to go it alone on issues like the stimulus. You said that President Obama never made reaching across the aisle a priority, is Biden continuing the tradition?” Instead of playing into that narrative, Boehner immediately shut her down, saying, “Well, listen, Joe Biden’s a good guy.” He called Biden a “traditional Democrat” who is just trying to “hold his party together” amidst a “skirmish” between progressive and moderate factions. “He’s got a very difficult job in his party these days, he’s got a very difficult job as it is being president,” Boehner added. “But I’m hopeful that here in...
