Frantic children called 911 at least half a dozen times from the Texas classrooms where a massacre was unfolding, pleading for police to intervene, as officers waited in the hallway nearly an hour before entering and killing the gunman, authorities said

Forest Service fire investigators on Friday placed the blame for the Calf Canyon fire — one of two wildfires that combined to become New Mexico’s largest blaze — on a planned burn set over the winter that continued to smolder for months.


Scoops of the Day

“I don’t want anybody else to go through this.” These were the victims in the Uvalde school shooting.

The shooter passed a background check. There was NO armed response to the shooter for fully 12 minutes after he crashed his car. So, which do you think would solve the problem more readily: more background checks, or somebody on hand to shoot the f***er?

Grief turns to flat out rage after that “news conference”

Don McLean and Susan Wortman of Hamilton say they were threatened with trespass and arrest if they didn’t move away from the Doug Ford public rally Thursday. They were outside in the airport area parking lot. Toronto lawyer @CarymaRules  was arrested, given $65 ticket.

Can you imagine a beer or tobacco company using a toddler to sell, promote, justify the selling of its products the way gun maker Daniel Defense did with this ad? And yet this ad was barely noticed or condemned until an 18 year old bought a similar rifle and shot up a school.

BREAKING: The Muslim side in the #Gyanvapi  case urges the district court that the mosque’s video survey findings must not be made public. WHY? WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO HIDE?

A police commander on the scene decided the gunman *locked in a classroom* meant "there was time" to get the keys & "no more children at risk." This determination was made while the *elementary school kids* were calling 9-1-1 & their parents were *begging* cops to go inside.


Scoops of the Week

Texas Gov. Abbott says the Uvalde school shooter had a "mental health challenge" and the state needed to "do a better job with mental health" — yet in April he slashed $211M from the department that oversees mental health programs.

Listen, bear spray DOES NOT work like bug spray. We would like to not have to say that again.

The Texas shooter violated a multiplicity of gun laws. The suggestion that more gun laws would have prevented this act of unspeakable evil is unsupported, and the implication that those who oppose such laws are somehow in favor of mass shootings is morally reprehensible.

"When in God's name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby?" - President Biden in the White House surrounded by many men armed with guns.

Vatican investigates possible miracle as UK government inexplicably finds £10bn for energy bills just 24 hours after the Sue Gray report.

If Putin gave back Crimea and withdrew his forces from Donnas, then that would end the war.

Zelensky: “The longer this war lasts, the greater will be the price of protecting freedom not only for Ukraine, but also for the whole free world. Therefore the supply of heavy weapons to Ukraine — MLRS, tanks, and other weapons — is the best investment in maintaining stability.”

K-pop group @BTS_twt  will join @POTUS  next Tuesday "to discuss Asian inclusion and representation, and to address anti-Asian hate crimes and discrimination which have become more prominent issues in recent years," announces the @WhiteHouse . #BTS  #AANHPI
