    Over in one corner sat Alice, a strong-minded 27-year-old who always said what she thought, regardless of how much it might hurt someone else. In the other corner was Sarah, a thirtysomething high-flier who would stand up for herself momentarily - then burst into tears and run for the ladies. Their simmering fight lasted hours, egged on by spectators taking sides and fuelling the anger. Sometimes other girls would join in, either heckling aggressively or huddling defensively in the toilets. It might sound like a scene from a tawdry reality show such as Big Brother, but the truth is a...

    I guess now we’re not supposed to be fighting culture wars anymore – man, it’s so hard to keep up with these ever-changing new rules! I’m old enough to remember way back to 2016, before Trump got nominated, and I could have sworn Conservative Inc., was gung-ho for the whole culture war thing. But then Trump actually fought it, taking on the big, soft target that is the spoiled, semi-literate athletes who like to rub their contempt for the flag we love in our faces in the guise of woke wokedness. Now we suddenly discover that fighting back is horribly...

  • Starbucks Customer Fighting Off Masked Robber With Chair Caught On Tape

    07/24/2017 6:50:25 AM PDT · by Enlightened1 · 25 replies
    Incredible new video out of Fresno was shot when a masked robber used a fake gun and a knife to threaten a Starbucks clerk. It happened on Thursday. Fifty-eight-year-old customer Cregg Jerri grabbed a chair, walked up behind the robber and smashed it over his head. The two started fighting, according to investigators. Jerri was stabbed in the neck during the struggle but managed to wrestle away the knife and stab the robber several times. It was incredibly heroic and the way most people would think that they would respond but may not have the courage to respond, said Chief...

    He Fights! My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if Im not bothered by Donald Trumps lack of decorum. They ask if I dont think his tweets are beneath the dignity of the office. Heres my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized collegiality as John McCain? We tried propriety...

    One of the most pressing topics that the NFL league office will discuss this offseason is how to either increase, or at least stop the slide in ratings seen over the course of the 2016-2017 season. This may be a good start. Tennessee Titans offensive tackle Taylor Lewan thinks the NFL should allow brief unmediated fighting similar to what the NHL allows.~SNIP~The only foreseeable issues would be punching a player with a helmet and facemark with your bare knuckles is not typically a good idea. Also, the NHL allows fighting generally until one player goes down to the ice,...

    LIKE so many others, I was stunned by Speaker John A. Boehners announcement on Friday that he would step down at the end of October. For nearly six years first as Republican whip and then as majority leader I met with John on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis as we worked to lead the House Republican Conference. (SNIP) We are in the midst of a campaign to elect the next president. After two terms of President Obama, an economy that is growing too slowly and a retrenchment of American power abroad, the conservative to-do list for the next...

    The Russian government this week canceled a planned U.S. surveillance flight over Russian territory in a bid to limit spying on massed troops facing off against Ukraine and Eastern Europe, according to U.S. officials. The overflight mission was scheduled for April 14 to April 16 under the 1992 Open Skies Treaty, but Russias government notified the State Department 72 hours before the scheduled flight that it would not be permitted. The cancelation is unusual because the sole reason for putting off such treaty-approve surveillance is flight safety, such as bad weather. Until this week, the United States and other European...

    HUNTINGTON BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Veterans are rallying around a local bar whose owners say they have been ordered to removed a sign that salutes their service. “Thank a veteran for your freedom!” says a large sign perched above Johnny’s Booze and Pool. Vets love it and make up a significant part of the establishment’s clientele. “I love this place. The sign gives me the pride back that I lost … I struggled a lot when I first came back,” an Army vet told CBS2′s Stacey Butler. But someone complained to the city about the sign, and now the bar’s owners...

    The relationship between Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is going to be awkward in the coming months.McConnell finds himself increasingly constrained by both his new primary challenger and McCains expanded deal-making role with Democrats. Republican senators told The Hill on Wednesday that McConnell is in danger of looking weak if McCain again seizes the leadership reins as he did to broker a deal to avert the nuclear option on President Obamas executive nominees.McCain is interested in being a major player in the talks later this year when Congress must pass legislation to continue government...

    The mayor, police chief and media have figured out what is behind a wave of black-mob violence in Columbia, S.C: White kids drink too much. And race has nothing to do with the assailants. But a growing number of residents are wondering why public officials are focusing their attention on arresting potential victims. They say city officials are ignoring the black mobs that are loitering, threatening, beating, shooting and robbing people by the dozens in this popular entertainment district called Five Points near the University of South Carolina. And it has never been worse. The latest attacks came a few...

Newspaper owner Alexander Lebedev repeatedly hit real estate developer Sergei Polonsky, sending him to the ground Friday, The Moscow Times reported Sunday. The show, "NTVshniki," was scheduled to air uncut late Sunday. Polonsky criticized fellow panelists on the show, saying their comments put him "in a mind to punch someone's face." Lebedev asked whether the remark was aimed at him, at which point he hit Polonsky several times in the head. Polonsky said he would have no comment...
  • Exxon Fights US Over Major Oil Discovery

    NEW YORK (AP) Exxon Mobil Corp. and the federal government are fighting over one of the largest oil discoveries in the Gulf of Mexico that could yield billions of dollars of crude in coming years, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. The Julia oil field, about 250 miles southwest of New Orleans, may hold more than 700 million barrels of oil and gas equivalent. Exxon, which announced the discovery in June, wants to tap that field. But the Interior Department says Exxon's leases have expired and the company hasn't met requirements for an extension. Exxon and...
