I don’t believe in coincidences.

In a powerful moment captured on video, a Minnesota firefighters’ 9/11 memorial display had a very fitting visitor:

An American eagle.

The Andover Fire Department was preparing their tribute to their fallen brothers and sisters who responded to the World Trade Center following the September 11 terrorist attacks when Fire Chief Jerry Streich noticed the eagle landing atop their display.

So he grabbed his phone, and the video has now gone viral, being viewed over 3 million times in less than 24 hours.

“Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11,” Streich says in the video. “Isn’t that unbelievable? This eagle just landed on the aerial while we were doing the 9/11 memorial. Phenomenal.”

Local KARE 11 reports:

The fire truck, which was parked on the Highway 10 bridge, was holding an American flag to honor and remember those who lost their lives on 9/11. While the Andover Fire Department — along with several surrounding departments — held their tribute, an eagle perched at the top of the aerial truck, creating a chill-inducing moment.

“There’s no better symbol to represent America today than a flag but then for an eagle to land on a fire truck holding a flag, I mean, it doesn’t get much more symbolic than that,” Streich said.

“I had to look at it a few times,” he added, of the moment he first noticed the eagle. “And then I thought, I need to videotape this!”

Trump Tweets Obama Speech from 2014 That’ll Have Chuck and Nancy LIVID

Once again, President Trump tweets proof that this border wall battle is nothing more than repugnant “resistance” schtick.

Published

Barack Obama

President Trump has said the government won’t open until he has money for his border wall.  Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi say “no”.

It’s a 5th grade fight, that’s for sure, as evidence by Ana Navarro last night on CNN who metaphorically stuck her fingers in her ears while making a sexist caricature of an uncaring woman simply because she didn’t want to hear about the border crisis anymore.

Meanwhile, children are dying at the border and women are being raped just trying to get there.

Trump has called the issue a “crisis”, and it certainly is.

Heck, even Barack Obama agrees with himand has for about 4 years, apparently.

President Donald Trump tweeted a video Thursday of his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, calling the situation on the U.S.-Mexico border a “crisis.”

Trump addressed the fact that he is being criticized for calling the border situation a “crisis” while talking to reporters on Thursday morning, and pointed out that the former president used the same language.

The president hammered the point again by tweeting out a video of Obama stating that there is a “humanitarian crisis on the border” from 2014.

And, because it’s just too good not to witness with your own eyes:

If this isn’t an appropriate time for a “mic drop” GIF, I don’t know what is.

Netflix Film “Bird Box” Inspires Moronic Challenge, Has Streaming Service Warning Patrons

What are these people thinking?!

Published

You’ve likely been hearing quite a bit lately about a Netflix original film starring Sandra Bullock entitled Bird Box.

The movie is a spooky jaunt through a post-apocalyptic world where the main villain is an unseen, shifting force that will force you to commit suicide should you lay eyes upon it.  There appears to be little rhyme or reason to how this entity travels or preys upon its victim, so the entire world has taken to shielding their eyes at all times when they are outside.

It is this factoid that has Netflix scrambling to warn Bird Box fans about a new “challenge” spreading on social media.

And why exactly is this warning necessary?  Allow the dunces of the internet to explain:

So, folks, let’s just remember that walking around blindfolded can be dangerous.

I can’t believe that this has to be said in 2019.
