A high school basketball tournament in Phoenix took an unexpected turn over the weekend when a wild brawl broke out, shocking video shows. Players from Mesa Skyline High School and Cesar Chavez High School were lining up to shake hands late Saturday after the Phoenix Union High School District Coyote Classic tournament when a student from Mesa threw a punch, setting off an ugly free-for-all involving coaches, players and spectators, video obtained by the Arizona Republic showed. “It was a terrible scene,” Skyline coach James Capriotti told the newspaper. “It was a really bad look after a really good game.” Prior to the fight, the atmosphere had been “very volatile”

Comments:

Player from the blue team, his back toward us, socks a white team player at 5 seconds in. Poor video quality, though. Can't we all just get along?

The "blue" team seems to be composed of "teens" and "youths." No surprises there.

As they say, a video is worth a thousand words. Especially when the “Amish” are involved or perpetrate a violent incident, with the fake media attempting to ignore that fact of life to appear politically correct.

OK, the article says that there was a "free-for-all involving coaches, players, and spectators", but the video shows most of the coaches and spectators appearing to attempt to separate the players (although it also appears that some of those working to break up the fight misinterpreted the actions of others attempting to break up the fight, causing tempers to flair and further hostilities to break out).

I do wonder what would have happened if a white player had instigated the melee? Suspension at least.

First punch thrown by an Obama-Son in blue, replied to with punches by two Obama-Sons in white. No surprise. Just watched the video to confirm what I already knew. The 14% doing what they do.

Looks like words were exchanged between the one who threw the first punch and his target, and I can't help wondering what was said. Even if words don't justify violence, sometimes it reduces my outrage if a 'victim' turns out to have been actively trying to provoke an attack.

What if the kid who threw the first punch had a helmet? Can't blame the kid when he's got a highly paid super star role model in the NFL, NBA and the music industry.

NYT Begs SCOTUS: Throw out Case
Instead of Ruling Against Gun Control

Posted by mc squared 12/3/2019 4:11:53 PM Post Reply
The New York Times editorial board is asking the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to toss out a challenge against New York City gun control rather than rule against the controls at the center of the challenge. Breitbart News reported that SCOTUS was hearing a challenge to the NYC gun control on Monday, December 1, 2019. The gun control prohibited licensed firearm owners from transporting their firearms to all but seven city-approved gun ranges. On December 2, 2019, the NYT editorial board begged SCOTUS to discard the case, pointing to the fact that NYC repealed their gun control when it became evident that SCOTUS would take the case.

A federal prosecutor was busted Saturday during a DWI stop in Manhattan — and wasn’t even behind the wheel. Assistant US attorney Bianca Forde found herself needing a defense lawyer Saturday when she was arrested for trying to keep cops from administering a sobriety test to her boyfriend in Hell’s Kitchen, police and sources told The Post. Forde, 35, was riding shotgun with her boyfriend when cops pulled over their 2020 Chevy Camaro about 12:15 a.m. at the intersection of 11th Ave. and W. 40th St., police said Forde — who works in the Criminal Division of the US Attorney’s Office in Washington, DC

The state of New York is likely to free at least 125,000 accused criminals from prison next year and provide many with taxpayer-funded housing and job training services thanks to criminal justice reform laws. As Breitbart News has reported, the state’s series of bail reforms will ensure that suspects accused of crimes deemed “non-violent” are not jailed before their trial dates and do not have to post bail. The list of crimes for which suspects will be freed from prison before trial includes: Second-degree manslaughter Aggravated vehicular assault, Third-degree assault, Promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child....

Two boys in California were killed early Saturday while sitting inside a van in the parking lot of an elementary school when an unknown number of gunmen opened fire into the vehicle, authorities said. The boys, ages 11 and 14, were shot outside Searles Elementary School in Union City, located about 30 miles southeast of San Francisco, Union City police said in a news release. Multiple residents called 911 and reported hearing gunshots around 1:30 a.m., the East Bay Times reported. Police arrived at the school and found the boys with gunshot wounds.

Former Baltimore Mayor pleads guilty

When we learned on Thursday that former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh had been charged on a variety of corruption and tax evasion charges, I pondered what sort of defense her legal team planned to put up. After all, the self-dealing transactions uncovered by the Baltimore Sun were such obvious examples of grifting that it should have been a no-brainer for prosecutors to go after her. But Pugh had insisted from the beginning that nothing illegal had gone on and she had paid her taxes. Well, so much for that. Barely 24 hours later, the news broke that the disgraced former mayor had pleaded guilty to four of the original eleven

The commander-in-chief ought to fire Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who serves on the National Security Council, for rank insubordination. That is the key take­away from Tuesday’s hearings in the Democratic impeachment push. Vindman, unlike other Democratic “star witnesses,” was at least on the July 25 phone call between President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, that set off the inquiry. But Vindman was unreliable and had questionable judgment, according to his own outgoing superior, Tim Morrison, the National Security Council’s senior director for European affairs.

Radical social justice activists will serve as the top prosecutors for three major Washington, D.C., suburbs — including the two wealthiest counties in the U.S. — after George Soros’s political action committee poured $2.1 million into ordinarily sleepy local races. In Virginia’s Fairfax and Arlington counties, the “reformer” attorneys ran on platforms far to the left of the Democratic incumbents, beating them in primary races before ultimately winning the general elections. In both cases, the incumbents expressed concern for public safety if the Soros-backed candidates took control. They also said that the activists were pushing a national platform about racism and over-incarceration that had no basis in reality
Cuomo’s latest bid to dodge blame for
Long Island’s natural-gas crisis

Gov. Andrew Cuomo upped his histrionics on the Long Island natural-gas crisis Tuesday, formally threatening to revoke the license of National Grid, the utility that has stopped taking new gas customers. The company says it can’t take on new commitments because Cuomo (followed by Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy) blocked construction of a new pipeline. That new-hookups moratorium, the gov insists, “is either a falsified device or a lack of competence.” That is, National Grid either doesn’t need the pipeline — or is still at fault because it didn’t find some other way to assure supply. Yet it never should have needed a Plan B:

Fox News is reporting that a former fundraiser for Barack Obama repeatedly misused funds from his non-profit organization for both political and personal use before the organization went bankrupt. Dixon Slingerland is accused of taking the funds from the California-based non-profit, the Youth Policy Institute, and spending them on a “lavish” lifestyle and “partisan political contributions” before the YPI filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In the filing, YPI asked Slingerland to repay approximately $1.7 million back, which the organization says is an amount that was roughly $400,000 per year before he was fired from the organizatigradually stolen over the course of five years.

The day after a federal panel called on states to require cyclists wear helmets, New York City’s incoming police chief called it “logical” — while Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed some skepticism. “It certainly seems like a logical conclusion to me,” NYPD commissioner-to-be Dermot Shea said of the recommendation by the National Transportation Safety Board. “Probably some more work to do on it, but if there’s a simple way — and I’m not saying it’s simple — but if there’s a simple step than can be put in place that could potential save lives, it certainly should be explored.”

It’s one of the questions you’re not supposed to ask in public but everyone talks about in private: What’s going on with Matt Drudge? For conservatives, the Drudge Report was a one-stop shop for news on the Internet starting in the late 1990s. When Matt first broke the scandal involving the President of the United States and an intern, his place at the top of alternative media, as it was called then, was secured. As always, imitators followed. But none came close to combing as many news outlets and boiling down the essence of stories like Drudge. That was his magic – he’d plow through stories and

The “No Country for Old Men” actor revealed the effect of tanning his bum in a Black Friday Instagram post. “My pucker hole is crazy burned and I was going to spend the day shopping with my family and instead I’m icing and using aloe and burn creams because of the severity of the pain,” Brolin wrote next to a photo of a naked man lying on his back with his legs in the air as the sun kisses his posterior.

After skewering Melania Trump’s holiday decorations in the past, the Washington Post has this year approved of her White House decor, and decided instead to criticize the former fashion model's appearance in a widely mocked piece on Tuesday that labeled the first lady's jacket "ridiculous." The liberal paper’s fashion critic Robin Givhan wrote a piece headlined, “Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations are lovely, but that coat looks ridiculous,” which criticizes the outfit the first lady wore when unveiling the décor.

Next year, Democrats will control both houses of Virginia’s state Legislature as well as its governorship. On November 18, State Sen. Dick Saslaw introduced a bill that he will sponsor in the 2020 legislative session. That bill will outlaw not only the sale or transfer but also the possession of certain firearms. Saslaw’s bill — SB 16 — provides that “It is unlawful for any person to import, sell, manufacture, purchase, possess or transport an assault firearm” and makes such actions a Class 6 felony. (In Virginia, Class 6 felonies are punishable by imprisonment for between one and five years.)

Lisa Page, the former FBI lawyer whose anti-Trump text messages became ammo for Republicans to allege a "coup" against President Trump, stepped into the public spotlight one week ahead of a highly anticipated Justice Department inspector general report. The Daily Beast published an interview with Page in the evening Sunday and shortly afterwards she was revealed to be on Twitter. "I’m done being quiet," Page said in a short tweet sharing the report. Benjamin Wittes, editor-in-chief of Lawfare and "good friend" of former FBI Director James Comey, confirmed the account, @NatSecLisa, is hers.

The Democratic presidential candidate wants the electoral college abolished after the 2020 election, saying she would get elected next year under its rules and then by the popular vote when she ran for re-election in 2024. Democrats were outraged in 2016 when Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but Donald Trump won the electoral college and the presidency. (Photo/Tweet)

However, the executive summary laid out the broad outlines of the Democrats’ case.

My husband watches a lot of videos on YouTube and some are entertaining, but some are downright scary. I watched one recently made by a man defending the Electoral College because he lives in flyover country. He made a lot of sense and clearly understands why the Founding Fathers wrote it into the Constitution. The rants coming from the Democrats running for office clearly show that none of them studied civics in school. They seem to think that if you don’t live in large cities on the coasts, your vote shouldn’t count.

"Think about what's happening to the Democrat party," said Varney. "You've got two candidates for the presidency who are socialists and along comes this man who is ... the 11th richest person in the world ... so you've got the socialists, going up against the billionaires. That is a totally divided party."
