Putin Tries to Save His Boi Toy

How amusing! Like Putin is going to tell the truth about his wholly owned bitch.

Putin offers to provide Congress with details of Trump disclosures to Russian envoys

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday he would be willing to provide the U.S. Congress a record of President Trump’s meeting with top Russian envoys, bringing scoffs on Capitol Hill that the Kremlin could help shed light on the disclosures of reportedly highly classified intelligence.

The provocative offer for the Kremlin to share evidence with U.S. oversight committees about the Oval Office meeting came with the caveat that the request for the transcript would have to come from the Trump administration.

Presenting a transcript is the Kremlin’s latest gambit in denying that Trump shared classified secrets last week with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russia’s ambassador to the United States during an Oval Office meeting.

But the tactic may have more to about attempts to sow further chaos in Washington than assuage suspicions about the talks.

Brave Montgomery County, Maryland Cops Receive Medal of Valor

Kudos to these two Montgomery County, Md. Cops who risked their lives to pull an unconscious man from a burning car. Often here, we talk about the actions of bad cops… Time to take note when the good men and women are out there doing what they do.

Two Montgomery County police officers were given a Medal of Valor on Friday for rescuing an unconscious man from a burning car on Sept. 1, 2015.

The incident was caught on one of the officer’s “in-car camera.” The video shows a car on the beltway going up in flames, while 34-year-old Rasad Isreal was trapped inside, unconscious.

Montgomery County police officer Cody Fields, who was the first to arrive on the scene, ran toward the burning car.

“The flames are coming up, they’re nibbling at our feet, they’re coming up, and we see the dashboard melting, see the windshield melting, just everything around us is kind of completely becoming more and more engulfed in flames,” Officer Fields said.

Also putting his safety on the line, Officer Brian Nesbitt arrived on the scene, and ran in to help.

The driver’s side of the car was blocked against the jersey walls of the beltway, and the officers were forced to use the passenger side door to get into the vehicle. Once officers were able to get the door open, they reached in, grabbed Israel from the driver’s seat, and dragged him across the center console, while fighting the seat belt he was wearing.

“I’m very thankful for them,” Israel said.

On Friday, Israel got a chance to say thank you in person to the two men who saved his life.

“Four or five seconds longer it would have been a wrap. I would have been gone,” Israel said.

The two officers we’re honored for their brave actions at the 42nd Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce-Public Safety Awards, and received a standing ovation as they were given the gold medal of valor, the highest award given in the police department.

Daring Rescue By Family in Louisiana Kidnapping

In one of those rare instances where things actually work out, members of a kidnapped woman’s family were able to save her life, after efforts by the police failed.

This one also goes under “benefits of a big family”, as over 20 of Bethany Arceneaux’s relatives joined in the search to find her after she disappeared, and kept looking after Police had given up for the day.

A bloodied and battered Bethany Arceneaux is carried from the car to the hospital by her cousin Marceus Arceneaux. Police have withheld the name of the Cousin who rescued her from her kidnapper apparently seconds before he killed her.

Kidnapped woman rescued by cousin in Louisiana, police said

A woman who had been kidnapped two days earlier was found Friday with multiple stab wounds inside an abandoned house in Louisiana — and freed by family members in a daring operation, police said.

The man who allegedly held her hostage for 30 hours in a vacant home in Duson, La., was shot and killed by the woman’s cousin as he rescued her, police said.

Authorities of the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office had been searching for Bethany Arceneaux, 29, since late Wednesday, after her car was found abandoned outside her child’s day care center, Capt. Kip Judice told NBC News.

Judice said police believed Scott Thomas, 29, the father of Arceneaux’s son, was the abductor. The two had domestic troubles, and Arceneaux had a restraining order against Thomas, Judice added.

The woman’s family decided to look for Arceneaux themselves. On Friday, about 20 relatives formed a search party and began to search on foot, Judice said.

Arceneaux’s cousin heard cries coming from an abandoned home in a sugar field about 10 miles from where the woman was last seen.

Armed with a gun, the man forced his way into the home. As the cousin made his way through the house, Thomas allegedly stabbed Arceneaux several times. The cousin then fired several shots at Thomas and then fled with Arceneaux, Judice said.

The woman confirmed to authorities that her cousin shot Thomas as Thomas was stabbing her.

Arceneaux is undergoing treatment at the Lafayette General Medical Center and is in good condition, Judice said.

Police found Thomas dead in the vacant home. He had allegedly held Arceneaux at knifepoint for 30 hours before she was rescued, Judice added.

Arceneaux’s cousin is not in police custody and has not been charged with a crime. He is cooperating with authorities, Judice said.

Under Louisiana law, a justifiable homicide statute allows an individual to defend himself as well as others he feels are in danger, which includes great bodily harm or death, police said.

Mayor Cory Booker… Hero!

New reports this morning that Mayor Cory Booker of Newark ran into a burning house to rescue a woman trapped in a bedroom.

Kudos Mr. Mayor!

Newark mayor rescues neighbor from burning house, is treated at hospital for smoke inhalation

The mayor of New Jersey’s largest city said Friday he thought he might die when he dashed through a burning, smoky kitchen to find and rescue a neighbor from her second-floor bedroom.

“I felt fear. I really didn’t think we were going to get out of there,” Mayor Cory Booker, his burned right hand still bandaged, told a news conference in front of the boarded-up home.

The 42-year-old mayor said it was very difficult to breathe as he looked for the woman, Zina Hodge, 47, whose mother had screamed she was still trapped inside the burning house.

As he got to the bedroom, Booker said he could hear, “I’m here, I’m here, help I’m here.”

The mayor, who was coughing heavily after the rescue, was taken to the hospital and treated for smoke inhalation and second-degree burns after the rescue late Thursday night.

Booker downplayed his actions, saying he just did what any neighbor would do, “which is jump into action to help a friend.”

“I didn’t feel bravery, I felt terror,” he said. “It was a moment I felt very religious, let me put it that way.”

Hodge remains in stable condition at a hospital, suffering from second-degree burns.

“I think he’s a super mayor — and should become president,” said her mother, Jacqualine Williams.

Fire officials said she and the mayor were apparently burned as embers fell from the ceiling, with the woman slung over the mayor’s shoulder. The officials said the fire likely started in the kitchen.

Two members of the mayor’s security detail had already taken several members of the family from the home when the mayor arrived and heard the mother screaming that her daughter was still inside.

His security detail tried to drag him away, but Booker told them that the woman was going to die, Detective Alex Rodriguez said.

“Without thinking twice, he ran into the flames and rescued this young lady,” Rodriguez said in an interview earlier in the day with “CBS This Morning.”

Booker, an up-and-coming Democratic politician who has been mentioned as a possible future candidate for statewide office, said Rodriquez also helped him take Hodge down the stairwell. Once they were outside, “we both just collapsed,” he said.

“I had my proverbial come-to-Jesus moment in my life,” he said.

The mayor said he did not feel heroic. “It all happened very, very quickly,” he said.

He planned to go take a nap after the news conference.

Booker, who is 6-foot-3, was a tight end for the varsity football team at Stanford University, where he got his undergraduate and master’s degrees. He got a law degree from Yale University and as a Rhodes scholar also got a degree from Oxford.

Despite his past as an athlete, he said is now “somewhat out of shape.”

The mayor said he now has an even more profound respect for firefighters.

Booker is known for his hands-on assistance to his constituents, even shoveling snow during a blizzard that snarled his city and the Northeast in 2010.

A prolific social media user, he tweeted late Thursday that he was fine and thanked his followers for their well-wishes.

“Thanks 2 all who are concerned. Just suffering smoke inhalation,” Booker tweeted. “We got the woman out of the house. We are both off to hospital. I will b ok.”

He then posted a tweet early Friday morning that read: “Thanks everyone, my injuries were relatively minor. Thanks to Det. Alex Rodriguez who helped get all of the people out of the house.”

13 Syrians Killed Rescuing British Journalist

This sounds like something out of an Action and Adventure movie – but it is real life. In an effort to save foreign journalists targeted by government forces, the Syrian rebels lost 13 of their own. The Revolution will not be televised…

Wounded British journalist smuggled safely out of besieged Syrian city of Homs

A wounded British photographer who had been trapped in the besieged Syrian city of Homs has been spirited safely into Lebanon in a risky journey that killed 13 rebels who helped him escape the relentless shelling and gunfire.

Also Tuesday, a Syrian diplomat stormed out of an emergency U.N. meeting amid renewed calls for a cease-fire to deliver humanitarian aid. A top human rights official said a U.N. panel’s report concluded that members of the Damascus regime were responsible for “crimes against humanity.”

The United Nations said the death toll in the 11-month uprising against authoritarian President Bashar Assad was well over 7,500, and activists reported more than 250 dead in the past two days alone _ mostly from government shelling in Homs and Hama province.

Tunisia’s president _ the first since the country’s own Arab Spring uprising toppled his predecessor _ offered the Syrian leader asylum as part of a negotiated peace, an offer Assad will almost surely refuse.

The harrowing ordeal of British photographer Paul Conroy, who was wounded with a French colleague last week by government rockets that killed two others, has drawn focus to the siege of Homs, which has emerged as the center of the anti-Assad uprising.

Hundreds have been killed in the city, parts of which the army has surrounded and shelled daily for more than three weeks. Many have died while venturing outside to forage for food, and activists have posted videos online of homes reduced to rubble and alleyways rendered no-go zones by snipers.

Conroy’s escape was the first sign of relief for a group of Western journalists who sneaked into Syria illegally and reached the embattled Homs neighborhood of Baba Amr only to find themselves trapped. Government rockets bombarded the makeshift media center they shared with activists last week, killing two of them and injuring Conroy and French reporter Edith Bouvier. Conroy and Bouvier later appeared in activist videos lying on makeshift hospital beds, pleading for help.

Conroy crossed the border into neighboring Lebanon after leaving Homs on Sunday evening, according to the global activist group Avaaz, which said it organized the evacuation with local activists.

The group said 35 Syrians volunteered to help get the journalists out and 13 were killed in the operation.

Washington Nationals Catcher Rescued

A collective sigh from local sports fans…

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos found safely, reports say

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was found safely after he was kidnapped earlier this week in Venezuela.

Venezuelan police rescued Ramos on Friday, two days after he was kidnapped, officials announced.

Justice Minister Tareck El Aissami said on state television that Ramos was “safe and sound” and that he was rescued by police. He said the circumstances weren’t immediately clear.

Information Minister Andres Izarra initially announced the news on Twitter, saying: “The baseball player Ramos found alive by security forces in mountainous zone.”

Ramos was found in the mountains near where he was abducted, according to NBC sports.

Adam Kilgore, a Nationals beat write for the Washington Post, also wrote on the social networking site that Ramos agent, Gustavo Mercado, confirmed Ramos was found safe. Mercado was with Ramos family, Kilgore said. Ramos was “on his way back home,” he wrote on the Washington Post website.
