• Parent punches student in the stomach in a school hallway, then just walks away

    (CNN)It happens so fast you almost miss it. A man walks down the hallway of a school, crossing paths with a young boy. Suddenly, without provocation, the man reaches down and punches the boy in his stomach. He then casually walks toward the door. The boy falls to his knees, doubled over in obvious pain. The man pauses, just for a second, to look over his shoulder at the boy, before walking out. Surveillance video captured this shocking encounter, which happened last week at the KIPP DC Spring Academy in Washington DC. The boy in the video, 7-year-old John Mclean, told CNN affiliate WJLA that the punch to the gut was "real painful." It was painful for John's mother to see as well. She says the

  • Ohio Democrats watch in dismay as their state tilts red

    COLUMBUS, OHIO - Thousands of Democratic Party loyalists shifted eagerly in their seats in Columbus’ dimly lit convention center ballroom. They waited for President Obama, who would give a fiery speech urging Democrats to get out the vote, and indicting the GOP for aiding and abetting the overt racism that marked this election season. But before the president took the stage, Ohio Democratic Party chair David Pepper strode to the podium and, citing polls showing Donald Trump with a slight lead in the crucial swing state, launched into what he called a “pep talk.” “Do you think we’re a Trump state, Ohio?” “No,” the crowd roared. “I don’t think so,” he called back to them. “We’re the state that

  • Students Beaten, Horse Punched in Mob Attacks at University

    Four teens have been arrested on assault charges in flash mob attacks around Temple University in which college students were beaten, an officer was knocked down and a police horse was punched in the face, police said Monday. Temple spokesman Ray Betzner told television station NBC10 that roving juveniles played a "cat-and-mouse game" with police. In two separate attacks, police said students and others were surrounded and then punched, kicked, robbed and in some cases knocked to the ground by groups of 20 to 30 teens. In two other incidents that have led to arrests, police said a boy punched a police horse twice in the face as mounted officers were trying to break up a crowd at a street corner, and another threw a Temple officer to the ground.

  • 5 Colon Cancer Symptoms To Pay Attention To

    Cornell University college president Elizabeth Garrett, the first female to ever hold that title, died of colon cancer this past March. She was just 52. “It is with utmost sadness that I write to inform you that our president, colleague, and friend, Elizabeth Garrett, passed away late last evening after a brave battle with colon cancer,” Robert Harrison, chair of Cornell’s board of trustees, wrote in an email to the Cornell community on Monday. “There are few words to express the enormity of this loss.” Garrett served her role for less than a year due to her disease.

  • Millennials Were Asked Whether Bush or Stalin Killed More People

    Young Americans are stunningly ignorant of the tragic history of Communism. A new study found that millennials and the youngest generation (Generation Z) are unfamiliar with past Communist leaders, underestimate the number of people killed under Communism, and support the collectivist ideas of Bernie Sanders. Terrifyingly, almost a third of millennials think more people were killed under President George W. Bush than under Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. "One of the concerns the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation has had since its establishment is that an emerging generation of Americans have little understanding of the collectivist system and its dark history,"declared Marion Smith, executive

  • Road raging driver survives brake checking a heavy duty truck

    A video showing a driver 'brake checkin'g a heavy truck on a freeway in Wisconsin last week sparked a conversation about road rage and risky driving maneuvers. The dashcam video, which was posted on October 18, shows an SUV cutting directly in front of a heavy-duty concrete pouring truck and slamming on the brakes. The concrete pouring truck then locks up its brakes and lays down a long stretch of rubber as it tries to avoid demolishing the aggressive SUV. Fox 6 showed the video to John Mueller, a driving instructor at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, WI, to get his insight on the dangers of brake checking. "Oh my gosh. That's life and death right there," he told the station. "You've

  • Exposed: How Close Nazi Germany Came to Invading Britain (And the One Thing That Stopped Them)

    Reeling under combined assault from German land and air forces, in late May and early June 1940 the British Army evacuated France. As many as 338,000 British and allied troops got off the beach at Dunkirk. But they left behind 2,300 artillery pieces, 500 anti-tank guns, 600 tanks and 64,000 other vehicles - around half of the British Army’s entire inventory of heavy weaponry. For the next year, the army was all but powerless to defend the British Isles. At least that’s what Adolf Hitler and the rest of the German high command believed as they promptly laid plans to invade. They called the operation Unternehmen Seeloewe. Operation Sealion. But brave Royal Air Force pilots exacted such a toll on
