SEE IT: Shark Charges at Oblivious Beachgoer in Panama City

This is TOO SCARY!

Published

Americans are in love with the beach, and we always have been.  The sun, the surf, the sand, and the salty air just seem to send us off into another place, where relaxation is the new number one priority.

But, as with anything in life, there is a deep seeded balance that comes with visiting the ocean.  It’s relaxing, but only after you’ve lathered yourself in sunscreen, checked the conditions of the surf, and ensured that you’re prepared in case of an encounter with jellyfish.

Oh, and let’s not forget about shark attacks, which are akin to plane crashes in both their rarity and severity.

A man wading in the waters off the coast of Florida had a close encounter with a hammerhead shark. Fortunately, the large animal apparently lost interest in the man, but not after appearing to charge towards him.

Katie Van Bogart uploaded a video of the incident to her TikTok page, where she wrote that it was filmed on Friday morning at Panama City Beach. Since uploading the video, it has been viewed over 6 million times.

The near-attack began slowly, and built to a crescendo as onlookers desperately tried to warn the man.

In the video, a man can be seen wading in the water as the shark swims nearby. Initially, it is unclear if the man is aware that the shark is nearby, although nobody else is standing near him.

Suddenly, the shark seems to charge directly towards the man, prompting screams of fear from people watching the scene unfold from the beach. Fortunately, the shark breaks off and swims away after coming within just a few feet of the man.

At this point, he seems to become aware that the shark is nearby, likely due to people yelling the word “shark” over and over again. He slowly starts to make his way back towards the beach as the shark appears to swim away.

The video has to be seen to be believed.

WATCH: Top 10 Foot-In-Mouth Moments From Joe Biden’s CNN Town Hall

Biden’s CNN town hall answers were strange. They were a combination of dementia affected, stupidity, callousness, and/or just plain lying

Published

Last week, CNN’s Town Hall with Joe Biden was an absolute dumpster fire, so bad that even their commentators admit it. CNN host Don Lemon, the worst host of a network filled with really lousy hosts, starts off by calling Joe Biden the “Big Guy,”…and it all kind of went downhill from there. As Lemon was calling Biden ‘the big guy,” dementia Joe looked as if he didn’t know where he was or who he was talking to. https://twitter.com/townhallcom/status/1418017581835894789?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1418017581835894789%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fclashdaily.com%2F2021%2F07%2Ftop-10-foot-in-mouth-moments-from-bidens-dumpster-fire-presidential-townhall-video%2F Here are the top ten really strange Biden moments that followed. 1. Biden told a restauranteur to raise wages. While government shutdowns and restrictions caused businesses to close early in the pandemic, it has been the overly generous federal subsidies to unemployment that have kept people at home rather than going back to their jobs. This has been a particular problem in the foodservice industry, which often has lower wages because it operates on razor-thin margins. https://youtu.be/HsXF1G0pdZ4 2. “I Don’t Care If You Think I’m Satan Reincarnated, The Fact Is You Can’t Look At That Television And Say Nothing Happened On [January] The 6th.” I don’t know anybody who believes Biden is Satan. Lots of people believe he is a lousy president. The theology of that statement is atrocious for a “devout Catholic.” It’s the sentiment that is the issue here. Clearly, something did happen on January 6 — a riot. And it was much less violent and destructive than anything that had been occurring in Portland at the federal courthouse or the nightly George Floyd/BLM/1619 Project riots all over the U.S. during the summer of 2020. https://twitter.com/CNNPolitics/status/1418027929993420804?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1418027929993420804%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fclashdaily.com%2F2021%2F07%2Ftop-10-foot-in-mouth-moments-from-bidens-dumpster-fire-presidential-townhall-video%2F 3. Biden Admits He’s Going After Guns. Violent crime is on the rise, and it’s not because of guns. It’s because Democratic Party-run cities aren’t fighting crime, are defunding police, and aren’t backing…

Restaurant Delights Customers by Refusing to Pay City Fines for Flying American Flag

A restaurant in Illinois has gained the support of its customers by refusing to pay fines levied against them for daring to fly an American flag.

A restaurant in Illinois has gained the support of its customers by refusing to pay fines levied against them for daring to fly an American flag outside their location. Terry Trobiani, owner of Gianelli’s restaurant in north Chicago suburban Prairie Grove, Illinois, was ticketed for “improper display” of the American flag after town officials stopped at the establishment. The restauranteur had added flags to the columns outside his store hung on standard wall mounted poles. “The next day the village administrator comes in and he gives me a pamphlet of the sign ordinance pertaining to flags. He says you might want to read this,” told Chicago’s Fox 32. The next thing he knows, Trobiani is being handed the fines. Trobiani, though, says he will not pay them. https://youtu.be/sOwYRQsZmUU For its part, the village claims that the city ordinance is not about patriotism, but about “safety.” Prairie Grove village president Doug Underwood claims that the ordinance is meant to make sure flags can’t be “blown off” their poles and onto the windshields of cars traveling the nearby highway. No, seriously. That is what they are claiming! “I love the United States flag. I’m a patriot myself,” Underwood told the Fox outlet. “I think it’s disgraceful. Because he’s using the American flag as a tool to further his business interests.” Not many residents are buying the city’s claims.
