Alleged carjacking goes all wrong when
victim is trained in MMA, suspects have
‘no clue’ how to drive car

Using his mixed martial arts training, a Virginia man fought off three would-be alleged carjackers. In addition to perhaps picking the wrong potential victim, i.e., someone who has a particular set of skills (to quote Liam Neeson’s memorable line from the movie “Taken“), the alleged suspects’ attempt to flee the scene in the vehicle, moreover, was apparently thwarted because the ability to operate a stick shift has become a lost art. The incident occurred in the parking lot of Anytime Fitness in Stafford, Va., which is about 40 miles south of Washington, D.C., on Tuesday at about 5 p.m. when the attackers

Both my wife and I greatly prefer manual transmissions, but alas, some vehicles no longer offer them at all and we are forced to take the automatics. Most of our current vehicles are manuals, but not the 4Runner. Never considered the manual to be a "theft proofing" move, but with the dim fools stealing cars.....apparently the manual transmission and managing a clutch is essentially impossible. Cool!

I lived in Stafford VA for several years back in the 80s and 90s. The scum oozing out of DC never learn. Coming down to Stafford to attempt a crime is like attempting the same in Polk County, FL - the dogs will get you every time.

Generally speaking, it's Dads who teach their 16 year olds how to drive a stick, so having a manual in certain neighborhoods is probably the best theft deterrent there is.

I wouldn't call them "men". Thugs, punks, fools, pukes, thieves, idiots....lots of terms fit. But not "men", for sure. Virginia is a state where a CCW permit is easy to get, too bad the "MMA" fighter hasn't yet discovered that that silliness fails instantly to a handgun wielded with a bit of skill.

A Republican senator is calling for annual senility tests for aging politicians, such as President Joe Biden, Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). GOP Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), a physician, said during a recent appearance of “Axios on HBO” that he wants cognition tests for aging leaders in all three branches of government, Axios reported. Cassidy, a gastroenterologist, said that people generally begin a “rapid decline” when they hit 80 years old. “It’s usually noticeable,” the senator said. “So anybody in a position of responsibility who may potentially be on that slope, that is of concern.

There are a great many unknowns and controversies associated with the COVID pandemic. Among the most urgent are those associated with appropriate therapeutic and prophylactic interventions. Some of the most intense disputes involve repurposed therapies — i.e., drugs that have been approved for the treatment of some other condition being used as therapy for COVID. This is the case with the anti-parasitic agent ivermectin. Much of the controversy regarding ivermectin involves "evidence" that the drug has a benefit in the treatment of COVID. Detractors will often use the hyperbolic claim that there is no evidence that ivermectin is useful in this setting.

It isn’t hard to point out the failures of Democrats. They’re so numerous it would be difficult to compile a comprehensive list of them. But two recent political gambits by congressional Democrats are falling flat on their face. Biden’s SCOTUS Commission and the congressional J6 commission have completely failed in their purpose of hiding their incompetence in managing anything larger than a fundraising dinner. Democrats successfully managed to whip their base into a frenzy over the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Currently, the left's two primary victim classes are Blacks and LGBTers, especially so-called transgender people.

The charter flights originate in Texas, where the ongoing border crisis has overwhelmed local immigration officials, and have been underway since at least August, according to sources familiar with the matter. Last week, The Post saw two planes land at the Westchester County Airport, where most of the passengers who got off appeared to be children and teens, with a small portion appearing to be men in their 20s.

The song, performed by rapper Loza Alexander and entitled “Let’s Go Brandon,” first went viral on TikTok before making a fast rise up the iTunes hip-hop chart to clinch the number one spot. The song was inspired by the “Let’s go Brandon!” trend that has been sweeping the country since NBC sports reporter Kelli Stavast interviewed NASCAR driver Brandon Brown following his victory at Alabama’s Talladega Superspeedway earlier this month.

When asked on CNBC why the administration waited so long to take action, Buttigieg responded that “we’ve been working this issue from day one”. Well, not exactly. As Politico reported, Buttigieg was “mostly offline” starting in mid-August, and only went on a media blitz after Politico disclosed the fact that he’d been on an unannounced leave.

Vapid, unintellectual, shallow, vacuous, inappropriate, cackling, ignorant, uninformed, clichéd, unimaginative, lazy… the list is endless. Has there ever been a Vice President so blatantly unqualified to step into the presidency as Harris? In a word, no.
