Dog adopted from Phoenix animal shelter gets big break in upcoming Disney movie

As the old saying goes, every dog has its day, and that couldn't be truer for one dog who was adopted from a Phoenix animal shelter.

HALO Animal Rescue says, Monte, who was adopted from them in 2018 and came from Las Cruces, New Mexico, will star as Tramp in the upcoming Disney live-action movie Lady and the Tramp.

"His adopters say he's been such a good boy and loving life," read a portion of the post.

According to the Las Cruces Sun News, Monte is a two-year-old terrier mix who was rescued from the Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley in Las Cruces by HALO in April 2018. The newspaper reported that Monte was adopted by animal trainers.


Fish with 'two mouths' shocks anglers: 'It’s a catch of a lifetime'

Now that’s a real “one-of-a-kind” catch!

A woman in upstate New York made what some are calling “the catch of a lifetime” when she reeled in a fish that appears to have two mouths. When a photo of the fish was uploaded to Facebook, it unsurprisingly went viral.

Debbie Geddes told Fox News that she caught the unique fish while she was out on Lake Champlain with her husband.

“When this particular fish bit, it felt like I had a nice fish on,” she explained. “I actually commented, ‘I hope it's as big as it feels!’ When we got it in the boat I couldn't believe what I was seeing! Two mouths! And yet this fish was healthy and thriving! Pretty amazing!”

Tlaib, Omar All About Weakening Israel, They Stay Silent on Hamas, Palestinian Authority

“It should come as no shock that Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan are unwelcome in Israel, a nation they are taking great pains to tear down. Their latest PR stunt is an attempt to victimize themselves, whitewash history and spin reality – providing even further proof of their worst of intentions,” Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) writes in Fox News.

“The two congresswomen attack Israel while remaining silent on Hamas using women and children as human shields, denying humanitarian aid to its own people, calling jihad an obligation, and launching rockets into Israel that kill innocent civilians.”

"Too Many To Count" - Pat Buchanan Blasts America's Endless Wars

Friday, President Donald Trump met in New Jersey with his national security advisers and envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who is negotiating with the Taliban to bring about peace, and a U.S. withdrawal from America’s longest war.

U.S. troops have been fighting in Afghanistan since 2001, in a war that has cost 2,400 American lives.

Following the meeting, Trump tweeted, “Many on the opposite sides of this 19 year war, and us, are looking to make a deal — if possible!”

Some, however, want no deal; they are fighting for absolute power.

Saturday, a wedding in Kabul with a thousand guests was hit by a suicide bomber who, igniting his vest, massacred 63 people and wounded 200 in one of the greatest atrocities of the war. ISIS claimed responsibility.


Ocean City Jeep Week Kicks Off Thursday

OCEAN CITY – The coastal region will be filled this weekend with Jeeps for one of the area’s fastest growing special events.

Ocean City Jeep Week and its signature early-morning beach crawls are back for summer 2019, bringing thousands of attendees and their Jeeps to fill the resort.

“Ocean City Jeep Week is really all about the Jeeps, the people that drive them, the vendors and the public. Even during setup this week, it became obvious that this is a group unlike any other in the motorsports world,” said event director Brad Hoffman.

As packet pickup started to kick in at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center, Hoffman reporting seeing people from different states all coming together to celebrate the Jeep, its culture and what it means to them.


Obama: "How Many Times Is Biden Gonna Say Something Stupid"

Remember all of those puff-piece profiles about the 'bromance' between former President Barack Obama and his vice president and erstwhile rival Joe Biden?

What if we told you that those stories were, for the most part, slickly executed PR plants, and that, from the earliest days of their joint candidacy, Obama and Biden got along about as well as Tony Soprano and his uncle, Junior. That is to say, Biden's resentment over losing out to the young, charismatic Nobel Peace Prize laureate never really cooled - and Obama never really stopped questioning Biden's competence, particularly during the early days post-convention, when the veteran Senator from Delaware seemingly couldn't avoid sticking his foot in his mouth.

Of course, the narrative preferred by left-leaning outlets like BuzzFeed is much more palatable to the public, which is probably why it has endured for so long.

But as speculation about Obama's refusal to endorse his former running mate mounts, Breitbart has resurfaced some passages from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's book about the 2008 campaign to remind the public that the relationship between the two men was far more acrimonious than they let on in public.


US Olympics chief to athletes: No anthem protests allowed

The letters went to the two protesters. The message was meant for a much wider audience.

The CEO of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee sent letters of reprimand to hammer thrower Gwen Berry and fencer Race Imboden for protesting on the medals stand last week at the Pan American Games, but the 12-month probations that came with the letters also included a none-too-subtle signal for anyone vying for next year's Olympics.

"It is also important for me to point out that, going forward, issuing a reprimand to other athletes in a similar instance is insufficient," Sarah Hirshland wrote in the letters sent Tuesday. The Associated Press obtained copies of the documents.

Neither Berry's raised fist nor Imboden's kneel-down on the Pan Am medals stand were met with immediate consequences, in part because they happened at the tail end of the games that were wrapping up in Lima, Peru.


President Trump moves to cancel illegal immigrant family loophole

President Trump will move Wednesday to cancel the family “loophole” that’s allowed illegal-immigrant parents and children to pour into the U.S., proposing new rules that would replace the 2015 Flores Settlement court order that created a de facto catch-and-release policy for the families.

According to details provided by an administration official, migrant families could be held in detention together while their cases are heard by immigration judges. That would supersede the 20-day limit imposed by the federal judge in Flores.

If the families can be held in detention, they can be deported, security experts say, and once people in Central America see an increase in deportations, they’ll stop coming.

“Today the administration is closing one of the legal loopholes that has allowed human traffickers and smugglers to exploit our vulnerabilities at the southern border,” a senior official told The Washington Times, previewing the announcement.

“President Trump has made it clear that he’s going to secure America’s border at all cost and this rule plays a vital role in the strategy to restore the integrity to our immigration system and our national security,” the official said.

The move is an end-run around Congress, where Democrats have rebuffed Mr. Trump’s requests for a legislative solution.

When acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan went to Capitol Hill last month to plead for action, he was told it would never happen.


Poll: 63% expect Trump reelection, up from 43%

A growing number of Americans, now a substantial majority, believe that President Trump is at least “somewhat likely” to win reelection, according to a new survey.

Despite nonstop negative headlines and concerns of an economic stall, 63% believe Trump is heading to reelection in Scott Rasmussen’s latest 2020 poll.

And, he said, those expectations have continued to grow even as the Democratic presidential primary race heats up.

Why Six Hours Of Sleep Is As Bad As None At All

Getting six hours of sleep a night simply isn’t enough for you to be your most productive. In fact, it’s just as bad as not sleeping at all.

Not getting enough sleep is detrimental to both your health and productivity. Yawn. We’ve heard it all before. But results from one study impress just how bad a cumulative lack of sleep can be on performance. Subjects in a lab-based sleep study who were allowed to get only six hours of sleep a night for two weeks straight functioned as poorly as those who were forced to stay awake for two days straight. The kicker is the people who slept six hours per night thought they were doing just fine.

This sleep deprivation study, published in the journal Sleep, took 48 adults and restricted their sleep to a maximum of four, six, or eight hours a night for two weeks; one unlucky subset was deprived of sleep for three days straight.

Just When You Think You Own Your Own Private Property...

The year was 1967. Ronald Reagan had just become governor of California. Aretha Franklin was belting out R-E-S-P-E-C-T on the radio. Marxist revolutionary leader Che Guevara was captured and executed in Bolivia.

And a restaurant chain called The White Spot opened its newest location in Denver, Colorado.

It was a popular diner; the White Spot served pancakes and milkshakes to customers for decades, and ownership of the Denver location eventually changed hands when an entrepreneur named Tom Messina bought the diner in 1999.

He changed the name from the White Spot to Tom’s Diner, and he’s been serving Denver customers for the last 20 years.

But Tom turned 60 recently, and he’s thinking about retirement. After two decades of cracking eggs and frying bacon, he’s ready to spend more time with his family.

And fortunately for Tom, he’s sitting on an extremely valuable asset: his real estate. Tom’s diner is located in downtown Denver in an area that has been heavily redeveloped.

Economist reacts to high numbers of New Yorkers fleeing to Florida because of high state taxes

Heritage Foundation chief economist Steve Moore reacted to the high numbers of New Yorkers who are fleeing to Florida because of high state taxes.

“This is the big demographic story of our country that may be the biggest economic story,” Moore said on "The Daily Briefing."

He said there are “four states of the apocalypse” – New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Illinois – which have the most residents fleeing over high taxes and huge budget problems.


Breaking: Dawnta Harris sentenced to life for murder of Amy Caprio

TOWSON, Md. —The teenager convicted of killing Baltimore County police officer Amy Caprio in Parkville last year has been sentenced to life in prison.

Dawnta Harris, 17, after an eight-day trial, a jury found him guilty of felony murder back in May.

Video from Caprio's body-worn camera was considered strong evidence. Harris was behind the wheel of the stolen Jeep that ran her over in May 2018. Jurors believed Harris also took part in at least one burglary in the Parkville area.

The Baltimore County state's attorney sought a life sentence. Harris's defense says it plans to file an appeal. The three other teens also accused in Caprio's death will be sentenced next month.

Medieval diseases lurk in LA: 124 cases of Typhus are confirmed

An explosion of rats in Los Angeles has lead to a surge in cases of Typhus and could pave the way for a public health crisis.

According to Reform California, there have been 124 confirmed cases of Typhus in LA County this year.

On top of the increase in Typhus cases, experts fear the return of a disease that wiped out a third of Europe in the 12th century, the Bubonic Plague.

Though the city has only three confirmed cases of the plague in the past 40 years, the conditions on the streets of LA make it a perfect breeding ground for plague carrying rats.

The reason for such a large influx of rats is largely attributed to the city's increasing homeless population.


Accused Capital One Hacker In Danger In Federal Jail, Lawyers Say

SEATTLE, WA — Attorneys representing accused Capital One hacker Paige Thompson are asking for her to be released from federal detention as her case proceeds. Thompson poses no risk to others, and is in danger in federal detention as a transgender woman because she is being held in the men's section, the lawyers argue.

On July 29, the FBI raided Thompson's South Beach Hill home, arresting her on a charge of computer fraud for taking data on over 100 million Capital One customers and others who applied for accounts. Federal prosecutors believe she stole data from 30 other companies and institutions.

Last week, federal prosecutors argued that Thompson, 33, should be kept at the SeaTac detention center during court proceedings due to her history of stalking, suicide threats, and a threat she made to "shoot up" a California social media company.


Trump ridicules Ilhan Omar's calls to end aid to Israel

President Trump ridiculed the call on Tuesday from Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota to consider ending aid to Israel.

In a Monday press conference regarding her canceled trip to Israel with Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Omar suggested that the U.S. aid to Israel could be stopped until they "ensure full rights for Palestinians if we are to give them aid."

"We give Israel more than $3 [billion] in aid every year," she stated. "This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region and the only democracy in the Middle East. But denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally, and denying millions of people freedom of movement or expression or self-determination is not consistent with being a democracy."



While visiting LA’s poverty-stricken Skid Row, Congresswoman Maxine Waters made sure to ask for her $10 dollars in change back after buying a book from a homeless person.

The optics weren’t great.

“Waters visited the desolate on the corner of 5th and San Pedro in the heart of the city’s Skid Row, where she touted a $13 billion bill known as the “Ending Homelessness Act,” reports the American Mirror.

Along with Rep. Al Green and a gaggle of her staff, Waters visited a “tent protest” organized by homeless activist Stephanie Arnold Williams.


Trump to stop ‘catch-and-release’ of migrants, will hold them during immigration proceedings

In a bold move to rob human smugglers of their best sales pitch of a free ride into America, the Trump administration is announcing plans to keep all illegal migrant families together and in U.S. facilities during their immigration proceedings, according to officials.

The plan, to be announced Wednesday, closes a legal loophole that requires the release of illegal immigrants after 20 days in custody, a “catch-and-release” quirk of the U.S. immigration system that so-called coyotes and smugglers have used to sell their services for up to $10,000 a person.

Instead, families will be kept together in improved housing until their cases are decided.


Medical Exam Disputes CNN Report, Shows Detained Immigrant Was Not Lactating, ICE Says

CNN published a story Monday about a breastfeeding mother apprehended in an ICE raid, but a medical examination disputes the story’s basic premise, finding the woman is not even lactating.

A CNN article told the story of Maria Domingo-Garcia, a mother of three of who was among the 680 illegal aliens apprehended by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) earlier in August. Domingo-Garcia was arrested while working at a Koch Foods in Morton, Mississippi, and is currently being held in a facility in Jena, Louisiana.

Titled “A breastfeeding mom is still being held in an ICE facility 12 days after being detained, attorneys say,” the article centered around Domingo-Garcia’s separation from her four-month-old daughter, and the subsequent pain of not being able to breastfeed anymore. CNN spoke to Domingo-Garcia’s attorneys, Juliana Manzanarez and Ybarra Maldonado, both whom claimed that she was still breastfeeding her baby at the time of her arrest.


Sen. Tim Scott: 2020 Democrat hopefuls trying to 'dupe' black voters

Sen. Tim Scott said Monday that Democrat presidential hopefuls like former Rep. Beto O’Rourke are trying to “dupe” black voters into believing President Trump is racist as a way to deflect from his accomplishments on uplifting the black and Hispanic communities.

During an appearance on Fox News’s “The Story,” Mr. Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate, responded to comments Mr. O’Rourke recently made about America being “founded on racism” and how Mr. Trump’s election purportedly re-awakened latent racism in the country. Mr. Scott said raising the specter of racism is all the Democrats have left because Republicans have been so successful in improving the lives of struggling Americans.

“This is an opportunity for the Democrat Party to try to figure out a way to dupe the African American voters, not only in South Carolina but around the country because they really have nothing but empty promises to run on,” Mr. Scott told Fox host Martha McCallum.

The South Carolina congressman pointed to Mr. Trump’s record on helping minorities, like criminal justice reform and record-low unemployment for blacks and Hispanics.

“If you were smart and a Democrat running for president you might want to focus on criminal justice ref— I’m sorry, actually we’ve already done that,” Mr. Scott said. “President Trump passed the best criminal justice reform that has had a disproportionately positive impact in the African-American communities, unlike the 1990s when Joe Biden and the Democrat Party locked up more folks in the Africa-American community than we’ve seen in a long time.

“If you were running for president as a Democrat, you’d probably want to talk about the economy, but oh wait, you can’t because President Trump has created more than 6 million jobs during his administration — 50% of those jobs have gone to African Americans and Hispanics,” he continued.

Elizabeth Warren confronted by her Republican past

Elizabeth Warren is best known as a liberal firebrand, but the 2020 Democrat was a registered Republican well into her 40s.

The Massachusetts senator's affiliation with the GOP until 1996 when she was 47, documented by Pennsylvania and Massachusetts voting records, was dredged up this week by actress and Bernie Sanders fan Susan Sarandon. The film and small-screen star alluded to the Massachusetts senator's prior party allegiance while introducing Sanders in Iowa, despite the Vermont senator's campaign urging surrogates not to criticize fellow presidential candidates.

“He is not someone who used to be a Republican,” Sarandon said of the socialist, who himself has toggled between being a Democrat and independent before and after elections.


When Ilhan Omar criticizes a Jewish journalist should we call it 'incitement'?

Following a press conference in which she deemed Israel not "an ally," Ilhan Omar took to Twitter to lambast her critics. The congresswoman, who found herself barred from entering Israel after her publicly released itinerary demonstrated she and Rashida Tlaib would violate Israeli law and hobnob with boycotters rather than meet with members of the Knesset, decided to respond to the latest charges of anti-Semitism by retweeting an attack by an anti-Semitic website against a progressive Jewish journalist.

In a piece at Mondoweiss (aptly deemed by a Washington Post writer to be a "hate site"), Jonathan Ofir attacked Batya Ungar-Sargon, the liberal opinion editor of The Forward. Ungar-Sargon's crime was criticizing Omar and Tlaib's sharing of a cartoon by Carlos Latuff, who is an anti-Semite famous for winning in the Iranian International Holocaust Cartoon Competition. Mondoweiss objected to the charge that the cartoon both came from an anti-Semitic source and promulgates the trope that Jews control foreign policy, writing:
