Trump lashes out at FBI after report he was investigated over national security

"This is absurd," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement provided to POLITICO late Friday. "James Comey was fired because he’s a disgraced partisan hack, and his Deputy Andrew McCabe, who was in charge at the time, is a known liar fired by the FBI."

Pot, kettle.....   :rofl:

10-Year-Old California Kid Gets Run Over by Own Parents in 'Car Surfing' Accident

Quote
...California City PD responded to calls about a child being hit by a car a few minutes after 4 p.m. near Neuralia and Ironwood Avenue. Police say the boy was "surfing" on top of the vehicle when he slipped, fell down in front of the car, and got run over. According to a family friend, the boy broke both shoulders, his pelvis, fractured some ribs, and will have to undergo surgery...

A Canadian Supreme Court Justice is missing, and the Ottawa Police have issued a bulletin.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/justice-clement-gascon-missing-1.5128783

Ottawa Police are asking for the public's help in locating Supreme Court Justice Clément Gascon, who announced his retirement from the top court earlier this year.

According to the notice put out by Ottawa Police, Gascon was last seen Wednesday around 1:20 pm in the 300 block of Wellington Street heading southwest.

Clement, 59, is described by police as a white male, 183 cm tall, with short medium hair and a beard. He wears glasses and police say he was last seen wearing a black business suit.

Ottawa Police Sgt. Scott Fenton told CBC News that there is no indication of foul play or a crime scene and Clement's disappearance is not being treated as a criminal investigation at the moment.

Anyone who knows where Clement is now is asked to call the Ottawa Police at 613-236-1222.

Veterans Affairs bungles VE-Day video by showing Nazis

Unclear if any Canadian troops visible amid footage of German forces

Peter Zimonjic · CBC News · Posted: May 09, 2019 10:25 PM ET

Veterans Affairs Canada quickly deleted an online video it posted - on Wednesday, to celebrate the 74th anniversary of VE-Day - upon realizing it showed images of the German Wehrmacht, the unified Nazi forces in the Second World War.

On Twitter, the message said: "74 years ago, crowds celebrated Victory in Europe (V-E) Day across the Allied nations. Today, we remember the service and sacrifice of those who fought for peace and freedom during the Second World War." The war in Europe ended on May 8, 1945.

Veterans Affairs Minister Lawrence MacAulay appears on screen to present the short video explaining that "more than a million Canadian men and women served in this bitter conflict."

The sound of MacAulay's voice describing the war effort is then played over images of the German troops ending on the line: "Lest we forget."

<snip>

A spokesperson from Veterans Affairs said the video, which was posted to the department's social media platforms, was "unacceptable" and was removed as soon as the mistake was noticed.

"Minister MacAulay has asked his deputy minister to review the approval process to ensure a similar mistake does not happen in the future," the spokesperson said.

Did not see the video before it was taken down. From media reports, sounds like whoever did the video, and whoever approved the video production/release doesn't know bugger all about the Cdn military that VAC is supposedly serving.

Another VAC achievement. ATI the cost someone in the media please.

That's what happens when fluid gender studies outstrip history studies.

Probably wouldn't have happened if Veterans Affairs had some Veterans working there. ::)

So, this morning a jogger in Queens, NY sees a "dead baby" near a school. Calls it in. They send a paramedic crew. Crew pronounces the baby dead at scene. NYPD is notified. NYPD sets up one those forensics tents, sets up a crime scene, officers and detectives swarm the neighborhood.

Neighbours described "at least a hundred" police on scene. Another source says 200.

This went on for over 3 hours.

...of course it turns out to be a doll. I guess they can pronounce death visually now.

“FDNY will conduct a medical review of the incident.”

I figured this was the best place for this...it’s practically unsettling to look at. Creepy.

So who did the paramedic crew run over and kill as they were leaving the station? A Firefighter who was sleeping in front of the bay door.

New protocol goes into effect for all Chicago Fire Dept Paramedics. All Paramedics will now be required to check and see if their patient is actually alive before covering them up with a sheet and leaving them for dead.

Lady does a peter pan off a bridge over Hwy 400 in Vaughn. Paramedics remove the remains.

Fire Dept. was called to do a wash down. Refused. Too much for them to take.

Miller Paving was finally called in to do the wash down. This delay was at the height of the late afternoon rush hour.
