Meet the New York Hero who nabbed an accused child rapist.

This is a fabulous article about powerful women who nabbed this m-effer!! And grabbed him in a headlock and kicked his ass!! A little NYC street justice!!

A sweeping manhunt in New York City ended on Tuesday after 23-year-old Angela Sauretti recognized a man in a black hoodie who entered the 108th Street Grocery in Queens at 1 a.m.

Sauretti was all but certain this was the face she had seen on Instagram—in an NYPD wanted poster for a man suspected in the machete-point rape of a 13-year-old girl as she walked with a boy her age last week.

Sauretti called out to a friend who stood nearby who had also seen the police Instagram posting. She asked if this was indeed the man more than 60 detectives had been seeking since Thursday’s broad daylight attack in a park across from the victim’s junior high school.

“I pointed him out,” Sauretti told The Daily Beast. “I’m like, ‘Yo, that’s him?’ [The friend] said, ‘Yes, that’s him.’ That’s what confirmed it. And everything just spiraled from there.”

Federal Judge strikes down Florida ban on medical treatments for transgender kids.


Florida’s restrictions on medical care for transgender children are unconstitutional, a federal judge ruled Tuesday as he struck down a signature priority of Governor Desantis.

Quit being "the nanny state" and let parents chose what's right for their family! Hypocrites!

I ran across this post on my neighborhood app. A disabled vet needs help out of a domestic violence situation.

This disabled veteran is in need of help to leave a domestic violence situation. I don't know her, but if you are able to help out, I'm sure any small amount would help her and her kids.

I ran across this cry for help on my neighborhood app.

I'm not in a financial place to help her, but at least I can do this. If you are able, please help this disabled veteran.


From her post:
"I hate to do this but I'm running out of time and options.

I told my husband I was leaving him a few weeks ago which resulted in a domestic violence incident over the weekend. The police came and helped me get my things out and a friend paid for a hotel for the weekend but I have to be out today. I am a disabled veteran and they gave me a list of resources to contact however I haven't made it through the whole list. It's $100 for another night at this hotel. Is anyone able to help me so that I don't have to go back home?"

Anyone else catch the irony of gulity on the same day as Daybell?

Both are monsters and responsible for violence resulting in death. Monsters.

I killed Betty.

The sourdough starter I made last year. I worked for months to get her to rise perfectly and then tonight, I killed her.
Admittedly, I'd had a few beers and I put her in the oven and set the temperature to 350°. Just to warm it up, and I forgot. Usually, I just keep it on for 30 or so seconds, but tonight, I forgot to turn it off.

RIP Betty.

The left needs to handle its antisemitism problem - Now.

I am in total agreement with Matt Lewis on this. I know I haven't been vocal about it, but it needs to be said. I'm sorry if I have ever offended anyone with my posts. That was and is not my intention.

And, let me make this clear: I 100% condemn antisemitism from anyone! Period. There is no room for hate in a love movement for those of us who are trying to support the innocents in this conflict. I condemn all violence against people who just want to feed their kids and live peacefully with their neighbors. And I especially want to condemn those protesters who chant those offensive things, who assault or harass anyone for their cultural or religious identity.

It is my hope and prayer (as an atheist, lol) that these are all outside agitators, (it's been known to happen) masked neo-nazis who don't want to reveal their identity. I hope that ANYONE who calls themself the progressive left, would out these monsters and help to reveal their identity and finally, vociferously separate themselves from those monstrous haters. Before it is too late and they co-opt the message of living in peace in the Middle East. That's what the real progressive left wants.

In edit: I know well the differences between the left, the progressive left and the far left. I don't need that lesson. What I am trying to say is that the average American person does not. And corporate media isn't going to clue them in. They will continue to paint the Democrats with their large paintbrush. The corporate media will call ALL of us the far left. And they will say ALL of us are antisemitic if we don't loudly condemn this type of antisemitism displayed by the alleged far left at Columbia University. (I still think they're neo-nazi scumbags who infiltrated the group. Well, I hope so.) It is not in corporate media's best interest to let Democrats win, so we need to get ahead of this story and not let them paint us as even mildly accepting of antisemitism.

I would also add that I strongly condemn netenyahu and his government. And hamas for attacking a civilian party on Oct. 7. As much as I hate any violence, keep it military.

Matt Lewis:
"Trust me when I say this matters. When racists on the right voiced repugnant ideas, some of us on the center-right stood up and condemned it. We did so because it was morally correct and because we hoped to prevent evil actors from co-opting and discrediting the conservative cause. Sadly, it was too little, too late."

Why is this common knowledge, news?

Verified pro-Nazi X accounts flourish under Elon Musk
An NBC News review identified 150 verified "Premium" accounts that have posted or amplified pro-Nazi content.

So, in other surprising news stories, water is wet and snakes are cold reptiles. Everybody knows musky is a fucking nazi himself.
