A Chick-fil-A employee working the drive-thru in in Chula Vista, Calif., is being celebrated for springing into action and saving a man’s life, an act he credits to his faith in God.
When Tauya Nenguke, a 22-year-old team leader, noticed something suspicious going on across the parking lot last Wednesday night, he handed off his iPad to a co-worker and sprinted over to make sure everything was alright, FOX 5 reported.
What Nenguke found was a 20-year-old man going into cardiac arrest on the ground, surrounded by friends trying to perform CPR, according to Cheryl Shields, director of marketing and community relations for Eastlake Terraces Chick-fil-A, who shared the story on Facebook.
On August 27, Dr. Beth Mynett filed for divorce from Democratic political consultant Tim Mynett. Dr. Mynett’s filing — submitted under penalty of perjury — included claims that raised the gossipy open secret of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s extramarital affair with Tim Mynett to a more serious matter of public corruption.
The divorce filing suggested serial campaign finance violations by Rep. Omar. (Questionable finances have been a recurring theme with Omar; in June of this year she was found guilty of a half-dozen or so violations.) The divorce filing also included one disturbing allegation about Rep. Omar’s character and judgment.
For a couple days, Dr. Mynett’s filing drew the expected attention from local and national media. However, it did not draw their expected effort or competency.
On the evening of the 27th, Minneapolis CBS affiliate WCCO aired an exclusive interview with Rep. Omar. WCCO’s Esme Murphy asked Omar if she had separated from her husband Ahmed Hirsi — described that week by multiple outlets as a senior policy aide to Minneapolis City Councilwoman Alondra Cano — and was now dating someone else.
“It was something that I didn’t think was racist at the time, but now I recognize it was something racist to do and I am completely sorry,” said @JustinTrudeau. “I have made a number of calls to friends and colleagues tonight and I will have many more calls to make” #cdnpolipic.twitter.com/myhh2ehRh5
Nearly seven years have passed since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, when a 20-year-old gunman killed 26 people, including 20 children. It was a dark day and one that Americans will never forget.
Lawmakers and power players responded to the shooting by pursuing a series of gun control measures. Others, like Sandy Hook Promise, a campaign “designed to train students and adults to know the signs of gun violence,” started posting a series of PSA videos in the wake of the tragedy. They debuted the latest one on “TODAY,” on Wednesday.
The ad, “Back to School Essentials,” depicts a group of students preparing for their classes with their “perfect” new materials, when suddenly they hear the sound of gunshots.
A local activist in Queens announced a primary challenge against New York progressive heavyweight Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) on Wednesday.
Badrun Khan, whose website describes her as an activist who has “spent her entire life fighting for justice, equality and fairness in her community,” says she is fighting for “REAL Results… Not Empty Promises,” suggesting how she views Ocasio-Cortez’s progressive platform.
Khan lists a handful of policy positions on her website but doesn’t touch on top progressive priorities.
She favors expanding Social Security and Medicare benefits and ensuring health care “is made available for all and that those who have existing coverage can choose to keep what they currently have.” She stops short of declaring support for any variant of “Medicare for All.”
A federal judge on Wednesday denied bail to a former American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging a jetliner in July over possible links to the Islamic State (ISIS).
U.S. Magistrate Judge Chris McAliley ordered Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani held during a Miami court hearing. He is charged with willfully damaging, destroying or disabling an aircraft,
Prosecutors presented evidence that Alani — a naturalized American citizen from Iraq — has a brother with possible ties to ISIS and a history of statements wishing harm to non-Muslims.
They said he recently sent $700 to someone in Iraq and has videos on his cel phone depicting murders committed by ISIS militants. He also failed to disclose to arresting authorities that he traveled to Iraq in March.
REPORTER: “Are you heading to the border?”
TRUMP: “We are going to the border later. Are you all with me? We are going to show you a lot of wall. We are building a lot of wall. We won the big case and a couple of other cases, as you know. We are building a lot of wall. So we will be talking to you later on, okay?”
The Department of Education is reportedly considering a ban on chocolate milk in city schools.
But that idea is not exactly sitting well with some parents.
A potential ban on chocolate milk is actually nothing new. Back in 2006, when city public schools banned whole milk, it briefly considered a ban on flavored milk, the high content of sugar being the main reason why.
A man who stabbed two American tourists at Amsterdam’s central station has told a court he wanted to avenge far-right politician Geert Wilders’s decision to hold a competition for cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad.
Jawed S. travelled by train from his home in Germany to Amsterdam where he attacked two people standing by an information desk before he was overpowered by police. S., a 20-year-old Afghan refugee who had been granted permission to stay in Germany, appeared in a high-security courtroom in Amsterdam on Monday charged with two counts of murder with terrorist intent.
While S. refused to name Wilders in person, he made clear that the contest was the motive for his journey. ‘Why did you give that dirty pig the opportunity to insult our prophet?’ he said. ‘I came to the Netherlands to defend my prophet. I wanted to kill dishonest and cruel people.’
I am pleased to announce that I will name Robert C. O’Brien, currently serving as the very successful Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs at the State Department, as our new National Security Advisor. I have worked long & hard with Robert. He will do a great job!
President Trump on Wednesday named the State Department’s hostage envoy Robert C. O’Brien as his fourth national security adviser, replacing John Bolton, who was ousted from the administration last week.
“I am pleased to announce that I will name Robert C. O’Brien, currently serving as the very successful Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs at the State Department, as our new National Security Advisor. I have worked long & hard with Robert. He will do a great job!” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.
rump’s appointment is not subject to Senate confirmation.
O’Brien joined the administration in May 2018 and serves as the Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs at the State Department. O’Brien, who served under Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, led the U.S. government’s diplomatic efforts on overseas hostage-related matters, working closely with families of American hostages, as well as working with the administration on developing and implementing hostage recovery policy and strategy.
An update from the White House: Hogan Gidley tells me that just because WH legislative director Eric Ueland is among those pushing this on the Hill, it does NOT mean Trump himself has signed off on it. "Not even close." https://t.co/BF7cGDdzqA
The White House and Department of Justice (DOJ) have met with multiple Republican senators and congressmen to shop legislation on expanding background checks consistent with the Manchin-Toomey bill, sources familiar with the effort told the Daily Caller.
The Daily Caller obtained a copy of an idea sheet circulating among Republican members, which indicates that the legislation in question would expand background checks to include all commercially advertised unlicensed sales.
“Consistent with the Manchin-Toomey draft legislation, a background-check requirement would be extended to all advertised commercial sales, including sales at gun shows,” the handout reads. “Background checks would be conducted either through a [Federal Firearm Licensee] or through a newly-created class of licensed transfer agents.”
As you now know, the latest example of massive journalistic malpractice came to us courtesy of the New York Times and the hit piece on Brett Kavanaugh written by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly that fell apart after the paper was forced to add an editor’s note that basically torched the intent of the article. Meanwhile, Pogrebin’s still spinning, and has found a new reason to play the victim.
Pogrebin’s attempt to scapegoat Fox News is based on an article from the super-objective Vox:
In the absence of a proper floor vote to authorize an impeachment inquiry, today’s business represents a regular oversight hearing, masquerading as impeachment to appease a liberal base. pic.twitter.com/RfmPO2C4F6
We’ve been writing more and more about Representative Doug Collins, mainly because he’s a constant thorn in Jerry Nadler’s side when it comes to impeaching Trump. Or making a big show about trying to impeach Trump to appease the Liberal base.
Because that’s what Collins points out, this is all really just a show and that the committee doesn’t ever do anything but talk. And issue a bunch of subpoenas, apparently …
See what we mean?
Note, his polite, southern drawl makes it even better.
We love the looks on the faces on the guys behind him … you can tell they’re trying not to laugh.
