78-Year-Old Lady Holds Intruder At Gunpoint In Washington While Alone With Her Dog

SPANAWAY, Wash. (KIRO) – An intruder was in for a surprise when he was interrupted by a grandmother with a gun in Washington.

“At the moment I was scared to death, I really was,” Sandy, who did not provide a last name, said.

She knew something was wrong when her dog named Booboo started barking nonstop that Sunday night.

When she went to see what was happening, Sandy found herself face-to-face with a man trying to break in.

“And we looked at each for a few minutes and he turned and started to leave,” Sandy said, but the 78-year-old wasn’t about to let him get away.

“And I said, ‘Oh, no you don’t. You stay right there.’ And I reached over and got my shotgun and I cocked it and I told him to stay right there because he was going to turn and walk away,” she said.

“Told him to go out, sit on the steps. I followed him out. And when he got to the bottom of the steps I told him to sit down and I just stood here with the shotgun waiting for the police to come.”

MLB Champion Praises 17-Year-Old Who Shot Rioters As “National Treasure” – Gets Mixed Reactions On Social Media

Two-time World Series champion Aubrey Huff praised the 17-year-old who was charged with killing two people during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

“#KyleRittenhouse is a national treasure,” Huff tweeted on Wednesday night in a post referring to 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

Rittenhouse was arrested and charged with murder after allegedly shooting three people, two fatally, following altercations during a riot over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

Huff’s post was liked and retweeted thousands of times before being deleted Thursday morning following mixed reactions of both support and disgust.

While many Twitter users slammed the former slugger as being racist, several prominent conservatives echoed similar sentiments.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson argued that Americans shouldn’t be surprised Rittenhouse attempted to “maintain order” after local officials declined to “enforce the law” and “watched Kenosha burn.”

“People in charge, from the governor of Wisconsin on down, refused to enforce the law,” Carlson added. “They stood back and watched Kenosha burn. So are we really surprised looting and arson accelerated to murder? How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?”

Others argued that the many viral videos of the incidents show that the teenager was acting in self-defense.

“Have we seen any video of Kyle Rittenhouse than shows anything other than self-defense?” columnist Matt Walsh of Daily Wire tweeted.

Others, primarily on the Left, dismissed the idea that Rittenhouse had the right to defend himself from being attacked because he was wrong to have traveled from Illinois to be there in the first place.

“Anyone defending Kyle Rittenhouse by saying it’s self-defense to go into middle of protest with a weapon & start shooting be careful about your standard,” political commentator Cenk Uygur tweeted. “Is the left-wing also allowed to do that? Walk into a Bundy protest with weapons and start shooting & claim self-defense?”

Rittenhouse is currently being held without bond in Lake County, Illinois, and is due back in court Friday for an extradition hearing for the shooting in Wisconsin.

Tara Reade Claims Alyssa Milano Is An “Enabler Of Rape” After She Suggested Rose McGowan Is a Fraud

Responding to a post from Rose McGowan blasting the DNC and Democrats, Biden Rape accuser Tara Reade blasted Alyssa Milano and called her “an enabler of rape.”

Reade wrote: “And don’t ever forget Alyssa Milano, Joe Biden sexually harassed and assaulted then ruined my life. Not once not twice but three times.

She added: “YOU ARE COMPLICIT” Alyssa Milano and an enabler of rape And I will NEVER let you forget how you tried to erase me. Now stop trolling Rose.”

Alyssa Milano then tweeted about Rose and wrote: “Rose and anyone bleating the same “dEmOcRaTs DoNt HeLp PeOpLe” nonsense, your lies are going to hurt people less privileged than you. It’s the kind of thing an ACTUAL fraud would do. Thousands of people are dying a day but you go on with your hyperbolic attention seeking tweets.”

Kaya Jones tweeted the following clip from 2018 of Rose McGowan blasting Alyssa Milano.:

Alyssa Milano later wrote:

Do you think we can get #AlyssaMilanoIsALie to trend number 1 before I fall asleep?

Everyone saying sweet things—I see you. Thank you.

Everyone saying horrible things—I see you.

F*ck off. Hurt people hurt people. Empowered people empower people. Loved people love people.

Chris Wallace On Obama’s Speech “I Bet He Didn’t Talk About Biden For 5 Of Those 15 minutes”

Reacting to Obama’s speech, Chris Wallace criticized the former President for not spending more time endorsing Joe BIden, his former Vice President.

Wallace said “I thought it was a really curious speech. He talked for 15 minutes, I bet he didn’t talk about Joe Biden for five of those 15 minutes.”

“He basically said, ‘He was my brother in the White House, he made me a better president, he will make it a better country.”

He continued: “It wasn’t even all that much about Donald Trump, although he certainly made clear, I think you could only call it contempt for Donald Trump.”

“But most of it was almost like the community organizer from Chicago, about how people have to go out and organize and as he said, our democracy is at stake.”

Wallace then added: “As a full-throated endorsement of Joe Biden, I’m not saying he wasn’t for him, it was a curious speech.”

Women Of Color Absolutely Buries BLM Activists: “I Don’t Need You To Co-Sign & Tell Me That My Life Matters”

When considering how desperate the Dems are in pushing their racially divisive agenda, their radical actions come into better focus more when you factor in that many black Americans are waking up to the propaganda on the left.

An example of this was seen in Southern California on Saturday, at a “Rescue America” rally speaking out against the “destruction of property and lives, the villainization of law enforcement, and the weaponization of tragedies,” as described by organizers.

A woman of color among the group, which marched peacefully from West Hollywood to Beverly Hills, was seen on video talking about the state of events in America.

“We are in a state of war,” she insisted. “So if you want to be a white girl, or a white boy, and come to this [rally,] come correct. Come with your numbers. If you have the videos of white people attacking black people, like the videos I see of black people attacking white people, show me the video!”

“Show me the numbers. Show me the news reports,” the woman continued. “Oh wait, it’s not true. You don’t have the evidence. So shut the f*ck up!”

WARNING: ADULT LANGUAGE

When asked if she was black, she replied, “No. But it doesn’t matter if I am, I’m an American. Red, white and blue, baby.”

All the while, she is holding a #Walkaway sign, and while her language is coarse at times, she makes it clear to a protester that she does have time for their “while liberal bullsh*t.”

Another clip captured personal empowerment advocate Shemeka Michelle, one of the speakers at the event, dissecting a white Black Lives Matter activist so badly you will end up feeling sorry for the poor guy.

Michelle makes it clear in no uncertain terms that she doesn’t need his ilk speaking on her behalf, as she exposed BLM for what it really is.

The rally was organized by the #WalkAway Foundation, founded in 2018 by Brandon Straka to encourage people to leave the Democratic Party, with over four hundred people showing up.

Among the many participants were actors Scott Baio and Lorenzo Lamas, as well as noted Trump supporter Joy Villa.

“We’re a movement of people who are walking away from the Democratic Party,” Straka told Fox11 Los Angeles. “We’re walking away from the ideology of liberalism, the liberal media…basically, we want to live in a country with peace and civility…truthfulness, kindness and again, we’re not getting that from the political left so we’re walking away from the Democrats.”

Former NFL Legend Mike Ditka Rips Anthem-Haters Again: ‘Bench Them’ Until They Learn To Respect This Country

Legendary NFL coach Mike Ditka ruffled a few feathers in an interview with TMZ last week when he offered a great solution for athletes who have decided to use our country’s national anthem as a pulpit for their leftist politics.

“If they don’t like the country, they don’t like our flag … get the hell out,” the former Chicago Bears coach said of anthem protests in professional sports.

Some argued that the 80-year-old simply doesn’t get it, or that he has oversimplified a complex issue.

Of course, Ditka’s comments also quickly saw him labeled as a racist by some on social media.

If you were to ask many fans of professional sports, though, the coach hit the nail on the head.

Ditka, who coached one the greatest football teams to ever play in the NFL, the 1985 Bears, still keeps up with the game he loves.

But, like so many sports fans, he has little tolerance for the disrespect being shown to the country’s flag and anthem.

Ditka joined Fox News host Jesse Watters over the weekend to discuss the sudden collision of sports and culture.

He offered no apology for his previous coments and instead doubled down, explaining how he would handle such blatant disrespect for the flag that so many Americans have died for.

Asked how he would have reacted if one of his players had knelt during the playing of the national anthem, Ditka was straightforward.

“They wouldn’t have played for us,” the coach said. “It’s that simple.”

“So you’d bench them?” Watters asked.

“I would bench them,” the coach answered.

“That’s it,” Ditka continued. “Until they found that it was honorable to respect the country.

“This country has given them the opportunity to become millionaires. You understand what I’m saying?”

“You can’t play American football in Peru. You can’t play it in England. American football can only be played in America.”

“And they make a lot of money doing it. Enjoy it, respect it, but don’t act like a clown.”

Ditka, like so many older, affable Americans who have paid their dues and tried to lead lives of greatness, has been around long enough to see the civil rights movement make great strides.

But the country, generally speaking, has gone backward with regard to racial unity, as the current neo-Marxist movement seeking to drive a wedge between Americans has been successful to a degree.

Ditka, whose life is intertwined with sports, doesn’t know what to make of it.

“I played football my whole life and we had more black football players on our team than we did white, but there was never a problem,” he told Fox News.

“We played football. It wasn’t about the color of a guy’s skin, it was about the way he played the game and what his contributions could be to society and to the school.”

NBA and MLB See Ratings Crash After Protest-Filled Debuts

As the NBA and MLB return from their coronavirus-imposed break, it appears TV viewers are not as interested in what the increasingly woke leagues have to offer.

With both baseball and basketball draped in all sorts of Black Lives Matter and social justice symbolism for their opening games, a substantially smaller number of fans tuned-in to the rest of the week’s games.

According to Outkick.com, neither league did well.

As for the opening games, Outkick reported that the return of the NBA on TNT saw the following numbers:

Lakers-Clippers: 3.4 million
Pelicans-Jazz: 2.1 million

ESPN’s MLB return numbers were also unsatisifying:

Yankees-Nationals: 4.0 million
Dodgers-Giants: 2.8 million

Outkick’s Ryan Glasspiegel added more ratings numbers on Twitter

“To be fair since I compared MLB vs NBA return night 1, here is night 2,” (July 24) he wrote, adding:

MLB (last Friday, ESPN)
Mets-Braves (4p) – 922K
Brewers-Cubs(7p) – 1.0M
Angels-As (10p) – 797K

NBA (last night ESPN) (July 31)
Celtics-Bucks (6:30p) – 1.3M
Mavs-Rockets (9p)- 1.7M

The Athletic’s Ethan Strauss also noted that the numbers continued to fall off for MLB:

For good measure, Strauss also pointed out that baseball can’t blame COVID-19. The virus didn’t stop people from watching Tom Brady golf with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson back in May.

In fact, the charity golf match earned record TV ratings in May.

Dubbed “The Match II,” the game featuring Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson, Peyton Manning, and Tiger Woods peaked at an astonishing 6.3 million viewers and raised more than $20 million for charity.

Epstein Victim Details Her Alleged Time With Prince Andrew And His Bizarre Fetishes

NY Post reported that Jeffrey Epstein “sex slave” Virginia Giuffre allegedly spent two days alone with Prince Andrew at the financier’s ranch, “endlessly’’ catering to every need of the royal.

The claims were made in a manuscript that she wrote about her alleged abuse at the hands of the late multimillionaire, his accused madam Ghislaine Maxwell and rich and powerful men including the prince — part of a trove of court documents released last week amid Maxwell’s battle against sex-trafficking-related charges in Manhattan.

Giuffre wrote in her book proposal — titled “The Billionaire Playboy’s Club’’ — that it was hard for her to stomach some of the men’s bizarre sexual preferences.

“It wasn’t easy meeting the sexual desires of these strange men, the Prince being one of them,” she claimed, according to the Daily Mail.

Giuffre alleged that she had sex on three separate occasions with the prince — essentially pimped out to him by Epstein and Maxwell — a claim the royal has vigorously denied.

According to the Daily Mail, Roberts, who also goes by married name Giuffre, recalled the alleged encounter in a 139-page manuscript titled, ‘The Billionaire’s Playboy Club,’ in which she documents the period of time she was sex trafficked by the convicted pedophile and Ghislaine Maxwell.

The papers were released few days ago as part of a tranche of documents compiled in a defamation case against Maxwell brought by Roberts in 2015.

Roberts has long claimed Maxwell arranged for her to have sex with Prince Andrew on multiple occasions, including once in her London home when she was only 17.

The British royal has denied the allegations.

In her manuscript, she also claims Maxwell sent her to Epstein’s 10,000-acre Zorro ranch some time in 2001 to ‘entertain’ the Prince for which she was later paid ‘close to a thousand dollars’.

Roberts said she was not initially informed who was going to be at the property as ‘it wasn’t my place to ask’.

Eventually she arrived at the sprawling ranch to find the Prince had already been waiting for her, she said.

‘”Hello,” that same old cheesy grin greeted me once again. It was his highness Prince Andrew, and what a sight,’ she wrote.

‘He wrapped his arms around my waist and greeted me like an old friend. I hugged him back rolling my eyes at the same time, already dreading what lay in store over the next couple of days.

‘My job was to entertain him endlessly, whether that meant having to bestow him my body during an erotic massage or simply take him horseback riding.’

Roberts claimed the mansion was ‘completely empty’ with the exception of a couple maids and bodyguards that ‘we hardly even saw at all.’

She recalled feeling ‘disgusted’ and was counting down the hours until she was due to fly back home, saying: ‘It wasn’t easy meeting the sexual desires of these strange men, the Prince being one of them.

‘He loved my feet and even licked in between my toes. Then there was the lack of passion in the intimacy we shared, to him I was just another girl and to me he was just another job,’ she wrote.

After their two-day retreat, Roberts returned to New York where she reunited with Epstein and Maxwell, who asked: ‘So… how was the ranch with the Prince?’

‘I think he had a really good time, he seemed relaxed during the trip and when we said goodbye to each other he gave me a kiss,’ Roberts replied.

‘I took him horseback riding, nowhere too far around the property, um..we went swimming in the pool, and of course I gave him plenty of massages. He had a massage at least a couple times each day, really seeming to enjoy his time there.’

Roberts said her response was ‘what they wanted to hear’, but added that in reality, she felt ‘disgusting over the whole thing.’

‘Like two proud parents they both looked over me with such content. “Good, you did really well,” Jeffrey complimented me,’ she wrote.

‘We all ventured up to Jeffrey’s office and out came the infamous duffel bag that went wherever he did. I was given close to a thousand dollars for my time in Santa Fe, more than what I thought anybody at my young age could make for a couple days of work.’

The allegations in Roberts’ manuscript are among many other claims that emerged this week alleging the Prince had been a frequent guest at Epstein’s properties, where the financier hosted orgies with young girls.

Roberts separately claims she had sex with Prince Andrew on three occasions at Maxwell’s apartment in London, in New York and on Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands.

Trump: “Astronauts complete first splashdown in 45 years. Very exciting!”

Nasa, Donald Trump and fellow astronauts have welcomed the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule after it successfully splashed down on Earth.

The safe landing brought a close to a two-month mission that sent astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to the International Space Station, as the final test of the Crew Dragon capsule that SpaceX and Nasa hope to represent the future of spaceflight.

That initial launch was the first crewed liftoff on American soil for almost a decade. And their safe splashdown was the 1st to occur in 45 years.

The successful completion of that splashdown – and of the mission and the test that it brought to a close – was celebrated by everyone from the president to other space travelers.

“Great to have NASA Astronauts return to Earth after very successful two month mission,” the president tweeted, in the first of a series of tweets. “Thank you to all!

“Astronauts complete first splashdown in 45 years. Very exciting!”, he said.

Mr Trump then shared Nasa’s video of the splashdown.

Nasa administrator Jim Bridenstine wrote “We have SPLASHDOWN!” and congratulated the two astronauts on their successful mission.

Fellow space travelers also tweeted their joy at seeing the astronauts arrive safely back home.

“Fantastic to see SpaceX Dragon splashdown,” wrote British astronaut Tim Peake, before writing “welcome home” and tagging the members of the crew.

Scott Kelly – a space veteran who spent a year onboard the ISS, after serving in the US navy – congratulated the two astronauts in a tweet: “Welcome to the U.S. Navy!” he wrote.

Elon Musk, who owns SpaceX and had been intently live tweeting during the return, had not posted at the time of publication.

1st NBA Player Not To Kneel, Gives Perfect Response To Critics

Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac stood out from his teammates Friday when he refused to kneel or wear a “Black Lives Matter” shirt while the national anthem played prior to a game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Isaac is the first player not to kneel for the anthem since the NBA season restarted Thursday. He stood with his hands behind his back while wearing his Magic jersey.

A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that his decision was not a surprise to his teammates and that he talked about it with them beforehand.

After the game, a 128-118 Magic win, Isaac, an ordained Christian minister, told reporters he “absolutely” believes black lives matter and said “a lot went into my decision.”

“Kneeling or wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt don’t go hand in hand with supporting black lives,” he said. “I do believe that black lives matter but I just felt like it was a decision that I had to make, and I didn’t feel like putting that shirt on and kneeling went hand in hand with supporting black lives.”

“My life has been supported through the gospel, Jesus Christ, everyone is made in the image of God and that we all fall short of God’s glory, and that each and every one of us each and every day do things that we shouldn’t do, we say things that we shouldn’t say, we hate and dislike people that we shouldn’t hate and dislike, and sometimes it gets to a point where we point fingers about whose evil is worse, and sometimes it comes down to simply whose evil is most visible,” Isaac said.

“We all make mistakes, but I think that the gospel of Jesus Christ is that there’s grace for us, and that Jesus came and died for our sins, and that we all will come to an understanding of that, and understand that God wants to have a relationship with us, that we can get past skin color, we can can get past all the things in our world that are messed up, jacked up.”

“When you look around, racism isn’t the only thing that afflicts our society, that plagues our nation, that plagues our world. I feel like coming together on that message that we want to get past not only racism but everything that plagues us as a society,” Isaac added.

“I feel like the answer to it is the gospel.”
