The gray tabby with the black stripes had been at the shelter four years, longer than any other cat.She reminded Dawn Stephanick of her own cat, who had died several years earlier, except for one thing: there was no spark in her eyes. Her name was Ashes.Stephanick was volunteering at the shelter, SAVE, A Friend to Homeless Animals, in Skillman, when she noticed the cat. She felt for her, but she already owned a 20-year-old cat. Her daughter, Ariel, 24, wanted another one, but she couldn’t see her being home enough to care for a second. Over the next few months, Stephanick watched as the shelte...
Tusitala "Tiny" Toese, a member of the far-right Proud Boys group who has been seen in numerous videos engaging in street violence with left-wing groups, has been arrested in Oregon in relation to events that took place in Portland protest back August, The Stranger reports.
Toese was captured on video at the so-called "Summer of Love" rally shooting a paintball gun at Antifa protesters, attacking an antifascist protester who was sitting in a truck, and tipping over an empty van that was used to transport Antifa members to the rally. At the same rally, Antifa protesters were captured on video pepper-spraying a female journalist and committing other various acts of violence.
"I know days from now, I might be arrested," he said at the time. "I'm sick and tired, and if we have to die to defend ourselves, our families, and our fucking freedom in America, we're gonna do it."
Toese has been charged with three counts of assault in the second degree, two counts of assault in the third degree, two counts of unlawful use of a weapon, two counts of riot, and two counts of criminal mischief.
Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen on Wednesday refuted former President Donald Trump's claim that New York Attorney General Letitia James does not have the documents needed to prove he committed fraud.
Cohen made the remarks on CNN after James claimed in a court filing that Trump is guilty of a pattern of inflating and deflating the value of his properties as needed for profit.
The former Trump attorney said that on a scale of one to ten, he's "about as close to a ten as you can get" when it comes to predicting whether Trump will be hit with a civil suit.
Cohen suggested that James is seeking the testimony of Trump's children "to be more than 100% certain by having others who could also be involved with these type of inflation and deflation of the assets, to have them held responsible too."
The Trump Organization has responded to the court filing by claiming that James "is faced with the stark reality that she has no case."
But Cohen laughed while insisting that the company is not telling the truth.
"What did you expect them to say," he replied, "to say, yes, you're right, you caught us with our pants down? They're going to say anything that they can to deflect the responsibility onto somebody else. Yes, of course, Tish James has no documents. Of course, she does."
Cohen pointed out that James is working closely with the Manhattan District Attorneys Office.
"And I've seen the boxes," Cohen revealed. "They must have more than 10 million documents."

Former federal prosecutor Barbara McQuade has written a new column for MSNBC in which she explores some little-noticed aspects of the United States Department of Justice's indictment against members of the Oath Keepers militia.
While McQuade believes that the evidence outlined in what she describes as the DOJ's "jaw-dropping" indictments is compelling, she also questions whether it's the end of the road, or whether prosecutors are building up to capture even bigger fish.
"For instance, [the indictment] lists in detail the arsenal the Oath Keepers assembled for this mission, including firearms, ammunition, tactical vests and radio equipment," she writes. "Who funded all of that equipment? Perhaps one of the 11 defendants who could face up to 20 years in prison for seditious conspiracy will be persuaded to tell."
McQuade also zeroes in on an indicted Oath Keeper who helped provide security for Trump ally Roger Stone during his trip to Washington D.C. for the January 6th "Stop the Steal" rally.
"If Minuta were to decide to cooperate, he could provide information about Stone or others, including digital communications with them," she writes. "From there, prosecutors could continue to work their way up the chain to identify higher-level planners and organizers, perhaps tying the Jan. 6 attack to other aspects of the 'Stop the Steal' scheme."
McQuade concludes by saying that she "can’t wait to see who’s next."
