Texas man shoots puppy that pooped on his lawn — and is met with gunfire from dog owner’s friend

Published

on

A Texas man gunned down a puppy that had wandered into his yard — and then he hit the ground to avoid gunshots fired by the dog owner’s friend.

Joe Ramirez was not wounded in the return fire, but both he and the friend were arrested on felony charges, reported KENS-TV.

The 37-year-old Ramirez told police he grabbed a shotgun Wednesday in frustration after a neighbor’s puppy repeatedly came into the yard of his San Antonio home, ate cat food and defecated.

He told investigators he thought the gun contained blanks, and Ramirez insisted he meant only to scare the puppy after trying to shoo it away.

The dog owner, however, said she heard a gunshot, followed by the sound of a dog yelping, so she went outside to investigate.

The neighbor told police that she saw Ramirez standing over her dog and shoot the animal at close range.

That’s when the woman’s friend opened fire on Ramirez and his roommate, police said.

Published

on

Mitch McConnell finally has the power he's longed for since he was a 22-year-old intern for Sen. John Sherman, but his ruthless march to become Senate majority leader has seen him abandon almost all of his stated principles -- and earned him a lot of enemies.

The Kentucky Republican has been unpopular in his home state for years, but this summer has seen his approval rating plunge to 18 percent after MSNBC's Joe Scarborough tarred and feathered him with the nickname "Moscow Mitch," and he's increasingly seen as "the man who sold America," reported Rolling Stone.

Sarah Sanders rages on Fox News that the ‘out-of-control’ media is ‘making stuff up’ about Trump

Published

In her new gig as a Fox News contributor, former White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained to host Sean Hannity that the "out-of-control" media makes "stuff up" about Donald Trump because they hate him for winning in 2016.

Sanders, who once told reporters that "countless" FBI agents had lost confidence in James Comey only to later tell investigators from special counsel Robert Mueller's office that she made it up, complained to the Fox host about the press being untrustworthy.

There will be ‘nightmarish’ consequences if ‘buffoon’ Trump starts a war with Iran: Rick Wilson

Published

on

Longtime Republican strategist Rick Wilson is warning about the severe dangers that will come from President Donald Trump getting America into a war with Iran.

In a scathing column written for the Daily Beast, Wilson warns that the president is "entirely unequipped to handle" any serious fight against Iran, which has been accused of launching strikes against Saudi oil production facilities.

"The mullahs know what they’re seeing when they behold Trump: a buffoon and a bluffer who just might be dumb enough to start a war with nightmarish consequences," Wilson writes. "Iran sees an American defense and intelligence apparatus run by toadies and temporary/acting/provisional/until-the-next-tweet nonentities whose tenures depend not on strategic insight or depth of knowledge, but on their ability to abase themselves before the Dear Leader."
