Hero of Grenfell Tower
Brave man catches four-year-old girl
thrown by mum from the 5th floor
seconds before flat was engulfed in flames

A GIRL of four was saved from the Grenfell Tower inferno when her mum dropped her from their smoke-filled fifth-floor flat into the arms of a neighbour. The terrified child escaped uninjured after the man, known only as Pat, caught her “like a rugby ball tucked in his chest”. But witnesses said the flat was engulfed in flames seconds later and the mother was feared to have died. Resident Kadelia Woods, 20, said: “The mum had the little girl’s head wrapped in a towel and was holding her out of the window and was screaming for help. The fire was raging like crazy. It was about 2am and the flat was filled with smoke.

They still don´t know who Pat is, though there is this photo. I thought good for Father´s Day. Mother was screaming from the window, Pat yells back, Drop her, I will catch her... and finally the mother does, seconds before her apartment goes up in flames. Pat catches the baby.

#1, good thing Pat isn´t an NFL receiver, what with the post reception celebration (spike), and all.

A baby was also safely caught from the tenth story (100 ft). No word about who that hero was at all.

My 4 year-old grand-daughter weighs ca. 22 lbs. or 10 kilos. Dropping from 50´ that is a TREMENDOUS amount amount of kinetic energy for a mere human to absorb. Also, the baby, dropping from 100´ also builds up a lot of kinetic energy. Can anyone doubt that the Living God, and NOT allah, was with "Pat" and that little girl, as well as with the baby and her catcher?

Robert Mueller, the former FBI director appointed to serve as the special counsel in the Russia probe, met Tuesday with House leaders investigating possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Mike Conaway (Texas), who took over as the top Republican for the panel´s Russia investigation earlier this year. The meeting was meant to make sure that investigations into Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential race don´t conflict, lawmakers said in a statement after the meeting.

On June 2, 2017, in a Letter regarding US withdrawal from Paris climate agreement addressed to the MIT community, Professor Rafael Reif, president of MIT, criticized President Trump’s decision to exit the Paris Climate Accords. In this refutation, we propose to clarify the scientific understanding of the Earth’s climate and to dispel the expensively fostered popular delusion that man-made global warming will be dangerous and that, therefore, the Paris Agreement would be beneficial. Professor Reif wrote, “Yesterday, the White House took the position that the Paris climate agreement – a landmark effort to combat global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions

Donald Trump is considering "terminating" Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible collusion between Mr Trump´s 2016 campaign team and Russia, a friend of the president has said. The former FBI director was appointed to the role last month with a remit to look at possible Russian meddling in the 2016 election, and "related matters". "I think he´s considering perhaps terminating the special counsel. I think he´s weighing that option," Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy told "PBS NewsHour".

There are multiple critical paragraphs within the carefully constructed, and intentionally released, opening statement by fired FBI Director James Comey. However, one of the more brutally transparent paragraphs deserves some highlighted attention. Page #2, paragraphs #2 and #3: We know from James Comey’s own admission, the entire construct of the FBI counterintelligence investigation was predicated on the now debunked, and politically motivated, fake “Russian Dossier”.

President Donald Trump returned home to the White House on Saturday after branding his first international tour through the Middle East and Europe a ´home run´. Trump, wearing a navy suit with a red tie, descended from Air Force One with First Lady Melania Trump, who paired a mint green cardigan with cropped white trousers. To the White House, Trump´s first trip abroad was an embodiment of the promises he made as a candidate to put America´s interests first and break through the guardrails that have long defined U.S. foreign policy.

Washington - It has been almost a year since Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was murdered in the nation´s capital. There have been no solid answers about why he was killed until now. Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C and police have suggested the killing in the District´s Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery. However, online conspiracy theories have tied the murder to Rich´s work at the DNC. Just two months shy of the one-year anniversary of Rich´s death, FOX 5 has learned there is new information that could prove these theorists right. Rod Wheeler,

Far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen took a fishing-boat ride on Thursday as two polls suggested the underdog had made a more impressive start to the last lap of campaigning than the favourite, centrist Emmanuel Macron. Since last Sunday´s opening ballot sent them into a two-way runoff on May 7, the battle has intensified, notably on the public relations front, between two candidates who both say their adversary will ruin the country.

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

An angry couple assaulted a Georgia fast food owner and her daughter outside a restaurant over a chicken and fries order — leaving the two women battered and authorities in disbelief. “I have a severely broken nose that requires surgery,” Quik Chik owner Jeanette Norris told the Daily News Sunday. “My daughter is scared. She was hit on her right side and has a black eye.” Norris was violently attacked at around 3 p.m. Thursday at the restaurant in Baxley after a couple complained about an order — prompting an argument that led suspect, Latasha Smith, to slap and punch

Actor and filmmaker Rob Reiner was shredded by social media users over the weekend after he called for an “all out war” to resist President Donald Trump. Writing on Twitter Sunday, the All in the Family star mentioned a Fox News report about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election. “When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong. #Treason,” he wrote. (Tweet) Reiner’s remarks were slammed by several social media users, many of them suggesting that the actor’s tweet

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

King put out a series of tweets accusing Christians who supported the halt of “fake faith” after the Supreme Court allowed Trump’s immigration ban to go into effect.

The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as
