One young boy in Georgia plans to make a special fashion statement for the first day of a new school year, rocking a bright orange T-shirt with the text “I will be your friend” to battle school bullying.

As Nikki Rajahn, of Fayetteville, prepared her son Blake for a new year at North Fayette Elementary, she asked her 6-year-old what kind of shirt he’d like to wear for the all-important first day, WCNC reports.

The mom of four runs her own custom-clothing business and expected her youngster to select a sporty motif inspired by his interests in basketball and football, she wrote on Facebook.

MOM SHOCKED TO FIND POLICE AT HOUSE – PLAYING BASKETBALL WITH HER SONS

Instead, Blake surprised her with a heartwarming request.

“He thought a while and said, ‘Will you please make me a shirt that says ‘I will be your friend’ for all the kids who need a friend to know that I am here for them?’” the proud mom dished.

“Never underestimate your kid’s heart for others! I love my sweet Blake!” Rajahn continued.

In the days since, the crafty mom’s Facebook post, featuring a beaming Blake in his neon T-shirt with green writing, has since gone viral with 6,300 likes, 3,300 shares and hundreds of comments.

“What a blessing and what a difference he will make,” one user said.

“If only adults could try this,” another agreed.

According to Yahoo Lifestyle, the youngster has previously experienced bullying in school and wants his peers to know that they can count on him as a pal.

An older brother to Brook, 4, Blair, 2, and Bryce, 9 months, Blake has “a heart for others and is very genuine,” his mother described.

Though Blake’s first day of school isn’t until Aug. 5, his mom said that orders are already pouring in for lookalike “I will be your friend” tees.

The miniature fashion icon, meanwhile, doesn’t fully comprehend what all the hype about the shirt’s inclusive message is about, his mom said.

“He doesn’t think anything of it actually. He is a little confused as to why it is such a big deal because he thinks everyone thinks the same as him,” Rajahn told Yahoo.

Double amputee, 14, throws touchdown at Detroit Lions practice

The Detroit Lions called in a special quarterback to lead the offense for one play during their intrasquad scrimmage Friday at Ford Field, where he touched the hearts of both temporary teammates and fans after delivering a perfect pass for a touchdown.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford normally leads the Lions in the huddle, but that changed when he surprised 14-year-old Calder Hodge, who calls Stafford his favorite player, with an opportunity to take a snap for himself.

PRO BOWL CORNERBACK DROPS BY FAN’S HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION PARTY

Hodge, a Texas native like Stafford, was born with fibular hemimelia, a birth defect that left his body without tibia bones in his legs. His legs were amputated when he was three years old and his mission is to be the first double amputee quarterback to play in the NFL, according to ESPN. He’s able to play thanks to two prosthetics called “C-Leg,” which is a computerized knee that helps with stability. He jokingly says he’s faster than Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

“[I’m] a little faster, Hodge said. “You can quote me as saying that, actually.”

Hodge had expected to just hang out on the sidelines at the scrimmage, but got a surprise when he was called in to join the offense.

“They were walking me over to the sidelines so I could watch the quarterbacks warm up and Matthew Stafford called me over and it just all happened,” Hodge told ESPN, “He said, all right, you want to throw a fade ball? And I said yeah.”

Hodge made the most of his moment, throwing a perfect fade route to wide receiver Marvin Jones in the back of the end zone.

“It was very emotional,” Jones said. “First of all, it was very emotional when we saw his story. That’s the type of heart that I want. He’s very intense, and the first thing he said to everybody when he was here was, ‘I love football. This is what I do.'”

After the play, the entire team surrounded Hodge and cheered him on like they won the Super Bowl.

“It was awesome, you know,” Stafford told ESPN. “But as cool as it was for him, it’s just as cool or maybe cooler for us. He’s getting to come out here and throw a touchdown pass to Marvin Jones, but just seeing what he’s gone through in his life up to this point and how he’s had such an amazing attitude and overcome so much, it’s really kind of inspirational for us.”

Lions head coach Matt Patricia told the team of Hodge’s story before practice, where Hodge served as an honorary captain.

“I’m sure it’s a big deal for him. But man, we watched a video about him today in our team meeting and it was incredible. It was cool to have him out here,” Stafford added.

The rising high school freshman starts football practice on Sunday.

“It means the world,” Hodge told the outlet. “Now I have an actual chance to go out and fight for a starting job to fulfill my dream of playing football.”

The teen’s mother says football is a place for him to be normal and the game makes him feel equal to his classmates and peers because of how well he plays.

“For him, something that he has said a couple of times in the recent past is that [football is] his place to be normal, it’s his place to be an equal to the other kids that are playing,” Calder’s mother, Kayla Hodge said. “As he goes out onto the field, you might look at him and think he’s not going to be able to play football, but as soon as he throws the ball everybody knows that he’s a serious player, that he’s going to do exactly what they’re going to do and he’s going to put as much effort into the game as they do. And so he quickly becomes an equal on the field, and that’s something that’s really important to him is to be seen as an equal to everybody else.”

Hodge won an honorary ESPY award last month for being an inspirational athlete and he’s even had parents of amputee children reach out to him for advice.

“Don’t hold back,” he told one mother of an amputee child. “Let him do whatever he wants to do. Let him be the person he wants to be. Push him to do great things but never hold him back to do anything.”

Deroy Murdock: Trump didn’t obstruct justice or collude with Russia — So why impeach?

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6064033154001_6064038396001-vs Deroy Murdock: Trump didn't obstruct justice or collude with Russia -- So why impeach? fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/opinion fnc Deroy Murdock article 87773a98-c9b9-5069-aa16-8e9a5b28171b

Notwithstanding the catastrophic congressional appearances by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s nervousness about impeachment, 118 die-hard Democrats (plus renegade former Republican Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan), are hell-bent on prying President Trump from the White House, long before Election Day 2020. But for what?

 “Trump-Russia collusion” turned out to be a bad acid trip, although the attendant hallucinations still reverberate among fervent Democrats. As for obstruction of justice, there was none. Somebody should explain this to these Trump haters — perhaps with crayons and butcher paper.

Here’s what impeachment-grade obstruction looks like.

RUDY GIULIANI: ‘INMATES WERE RUNNING THE ASYLUM’ BECAUSE MUELLER COULDN’T HANDLE PROBE

On June 17, 1972, the so-called White House “plumbers” illegally broke into the Democratic National Committee’s Washington, D.C., headquarters in the Watergate office complex to spy on President Richard Milhous Nixon’s opponents.

Nixon and his top aides unlawfully funneled “hush money” to these criminals, in cash, so they would clam up rather than sing. Nixon and his top aides also pressured the CIA to tell the FBI, in Nixon’s words: “Stay the hell out of this.”

Nixon six times asserted his presidential right to executive privilege and hid incriminating materials from scrutiny (not least Oval Office audiotapes of Nixon conspiring with his henchmen). This cover-up prompted Nixon’s resignation on August 9, 1974.

In contrast, Russiagate involved no underlying crime. According to Mueller’s report: “The Special Counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.”

Furthermore, Trump waived executive privilege. Consequently, “approximately 1.4 million pages of documents were provided to” Mueller, wrote Emmett Flood, then-special counsel to the president, to Attorney General William Barr on April 19.

Trump, Flood added, “encouraged every White House staffer to cooperate fully with the SCO [Special Counsel’s Office] and, so far as we are aware, all have done so.” Among many others, these “voluntary interviewees” included senior adviser Jared Kushner, senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, and former aides.

El Paso Walmart shooting eyewitness describes seeing gunman, fleeing scene

Westlake Legal Group walmart-Efrain-Reyes El Paso Walmart shooting eyewitness describes seeing gunman, fleeing scene Sam Dorman fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 789bcc0c-f498-5c12-815d-6526207efad1

El Paso resident Vanessa Saenz has described to Fox News the moments when she saw the shooter responsible for what officials described as “several fatalities” at a Walmart near the Cielo Vista Mall.

Saenz initially heard what she thought sounded like “fireworks” and saw “odd” behavior from people in the store. When Saenz’s mother told her that the sounds weren’t “fireworks,” she tried fleeing by driving to the back of the Walmart where she saw a man carrying “what seemed to be a rifle.”

He was “just pointing at people and shooting straight at them. I saw about three or four just fall to the ground.” At that point, she was at a stop sign while other cars were passing.  “He was just shooting randomly, it wasn’t to any particular person,” she added.

The last thing she saw was the man walking into the Walmart “very nonchalant, like he was on a mission.”

POLICE SAY THERE IS NO LONGER AN ACTIVE SHOOTER IN EL PASO, TEXAS

Police responded to reports of an active shooting at the Cielo Vista Mall area shortly before 11 a.m. An El Paso police spokesman told reporters shortly before 1 p.m. that there was no longer an “imminent threat” to the area.

Lt. Governor Dan Patrick confirmed to Fox News that authorities had at least one suspect in custody and around 15-20 casualties but did not give a number of fatalities.

Saenz told Fox News the shooter was “wearing a black t-shirt, camel-colored cargo pants,” and something to cover his ears, she said.

She added that the gunman had dark black hair, and appeared to stand around 5’10” or 5’11”.

Canaparo and Eastman: Crack down on Antifa using law targeting organized crime

Westlake Legal Group Portland-4 Canaparo and Eastman: Crack down on Antifa using law targeting organized crime GianCarlo Canaparo fox-news/us/crime/antifa fox-news/person/william-barr fox-news/person/ted-cruz fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc Christina Eastman c138529e-bca5-5435-9ad2-0201d3cc476d article

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, recently requested an organized crime investigation of the masked militant group Antifa, which he called “a left-wing anarchist terrorist organization that routinely relies on violence to intimidate and punish its political opponents.”

Cruz made his request for a probe of Antifa in a letter to Attorney General William Barr, Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and FBI Director Christopher Wray. The letter details a path to prosecuting members of Antifa under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).

Broadly targeting those they claim are far-right and racist, Antifa members have repeatedly engaged in criminal activity ranging from destroying property to attacking a reporter. The group is best known for fighting those it labels “fascists” with tactics borrowed from Adolf Hitler’s early followers, known as Brownshirts.

TRUMP DECRIES ‘GUTLESS’ ANTIFA, SAYS HE’S WEIGHING DECLARING GROUP MAJOR TERROR ORGANIZATION

Antifa came to national attention in 2017 when its violent protests of President Trump’s inauguration led to hundreds of arrests.

Antifa protesters in Washington destroyed storefronts, set trash cans and a limousine on fire, and attacked police officers with rocks and bricks.

In New York City, Dallas, Chicago and Portland, Ore., club-wielding Antifa protesters threw bricks and unknown liquids at police officers.

MORE FROM OPINION

The University of California at Berkeley was Antifa’s next headline-making stage. Wearing their signature black garb and face masks, Antifa members threw fireworks, rocks and bricks at police to protest a speech on Berkeley’s campus by political provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos. They also set fire to buildings, smashed windows and pepper-sprayed a woman wearing a hat expressing support for President Trump.

Broadly targeting those they claim are far-right and racist, Antifa members have repeatedly engaged in criminal activity ranging from destroying property to attacking a reporter.

Antifa has been particularly active in Portland. During a 2017 May Day riot, the group set bonfires in the streets, destroyed storefronts, and vandalized police cars. Recently Antifa attacks have become more violent.

Antifa protesters in Portland robbed and attacked journalist Andy Ngo and others with fists, sticks, pepper spray and milkshakes that local police say may have been mixed with cement in June. The attacks sent several people to the hospital with serious injuries – in Ngo’s case, a brain hemorrhage. Police stood on the sidelines and did nothing.

The violence escalated further in July. After sending his friends a manifesto declaring “I am Antifa,” a 69-year-old man attacked an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center in Tacoma, Wash.

Armed with a rifle and improvised incendiary devices, the man set cars on fire, threw firebombs at the facility and attempted to ignite a large propane tank. Police confronted him and then shot and killed him.    

The Tacoma attack could have easily produced mass casualties – and Seattle Antifascist Action seems OK with that. Hailing the attacker as “another martyr in the struggle against fascism,” the group added: “May his death serve as a call to protest and direct action.”

In response to Antifa’s increasing violence and – at least in Portland – local law enforcement’s inability or unwillingness to protect the community, commentators including Heritage Foundation Senior Legal Fellow Hans von Spakovsky, have called for federal action.

Von Spakovsky argues that Antifa members should be prosecuted under civil rights laws like the Ku Klux Klan Act, which makes it illegal for masked thugs to deprive others of their civil liberties. 

Cruz has upped the ante by urging the Department of Justice to investigate Antifa members under RICO, a law enacted to combat organized crime. Originally RICO was intended to take on the Mafia. Today it’s used more broadly – sometimes too broadly. But Antifa has made itself a fair target.

RICO makes it illegal for a person to participate in the affairs of an enterprise that engages in “racketeering activities.” Racketeering activities include crimes like arson, robbery, fraud and money laundering.

Cruz lays out the RICO case against Rose City Antifa, the group based in Portland. For one, the group is an association of people or “enterprise” within the meaning of the statute. For another, its acts of arson and robbery are well-documented, extensive and ongoing.

What’s more, the group remains active and declares its intention to commit more – and increasingly violent – crimes in the future.

If the Justice Department takes Cruz’s advice and opens an investigation, Portland would be a good place to start. But Antifa groups are perpetrating similar crimes all over the country in violation of state and federal laws.

The Justice Department and Antifa’s victims should use every tool at their disposal, including civil rights laws, to stop this modern-day Brownshirt mob.

Texas Lt. Gov. tells Antifa to ‘stay out’ of El Paso after Walmart shooting

Westlake Legal Group Portland-3 Texas Lt. Gov. tells Antifa to 'stay out' of El Paso after Walmart shooting Sam Dorman fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc e27811ab-4f25-5806-ba8b-08aacce3514e article

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick explicitly warned the left-wing group Antifa against coming to the state following Saturday’s mass shooting at an El Paso Walmart.

The shooting came 29 days before a scheduled visit from Antifa, which planned to conduct a “Border Resistance” militancy training tour.

“Stay out of El Paso,” Patrick told Antifa during an appearance Fox News. He noted that while the group wasn’t usually welcome in Texas, they especially weren’t welcome after the shooting.

MULTIPLE VICTIMS REPORTED AFTER SHOOTING NEAR EL PASO WALMART, POLICE WARN OF MULTIPLE ‘SHOOTERS’

“Stay out of Texas, basically,” Patrick said. “We don’t need them coming in on Sept. 1. We didn’t need them coming in before this happened.”

A flyer for the event posted on Twitter by conservative journalist Andy Ngo showed people shooting arrows at a tower near what appeared to be a border fence. The group issued a “Call to Action” for 10 days in El Paso. Antifa is known for violent protests and attacks on police and journalists, including Ngo.

Patrick also expressed confidence that Texas would rally together and stay strong after the shooting. “We’re never going to give up to the shooters, never going to give up to the lawbreakers,” he said.

WITNESS TELLS FOX NEWS THAT HIS MOTHER WAS KILLED IN EL PASO MASS SHOOTING

Patrick said that there were between 15 and 20 “casualties” in the shooting, but did not specify a number of fatalities.

Vanessa Saenz, a witness, told Fox News that she heard several “pops” near the area and saw a man in a black shirt and cargo pants with a weapon shooting outside the building before entering the Walmart.

“He was just pointing at people and just shooting,” she added.

NYPD union rips de Blasio over Eric Garner cop case, warns police department is ‘frozen’

The New York Police Department union on Friday tore into Mayor Bill de Blasio over his handling of the case of the officer charged in the 2014 death of Eric Garner — accusing him of creating a “chilling effect.”

“Over the last number of years since this mayor walked into City Hall, I’ve stood at this podium and said [de Blasio’s] decisions will have a chilling effect on New York City police officers,” a furious New York City Police Benevolent Association President Patrick J. Lynch told reporters Friday. “Well, the criminal advocates have gotten what they want — the police department is frozen.”

NYPD COP ACCUSED IN ERIC GARNER CHOKEHOLD CASE SHOULD BE FIRED, JUDGE SAYS

The union, which represents the 24,000 rank-and-file of New York’s Finest, has had a tense relationship with the left-wing mayor, particularly in relation to de Blasio’s comments about policing and race. But that has deteriorated even further with his handling of the Garner case and Friday’s decision by a NYPD judge to recommend the officer involved be fired.

Garner died in 2014 after his arrest for the sale of untaxed cigarettes. After Garner refused to be handcuffed, Officer Daniel Pantaleo took him down using what prosecutors said was a banned chokehold. The officer’s attorney argued the hold used an approved “seat belt” technique.

Garner died of cardiac arrest and video of him saying “I can’t breathe” during the confrontation before passing out went viral. It became a rallying cry for the “Black Lives Matter” movement, with activists using the incident as a example of alleged racist discrimination by police. (Garner was black; Pantaleo is white.)

A grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo, and last month the Justice Department ruled against the Civil Rights Division’s recommendation that charges be brought against him. But on Friday, NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Trials Rosemarie Maldonado recommended Pantaleo be fired.

The case now goes to Police Commissioner James O’Neill, who will decide later this month whether to accept the recommendation.

De Blasio, who is running for president, angered officers when he commented on the pending case during Wednesday’s Democratic primary debate, when he promised the Garner family would get “justice.”

“I know the Garner family,” de Blasio said at the debate in Detroit. “They’ve gone through extraordinary pain. They are waiting for justice and are going to get justice. There’s finally going to be justice.”

NYPD OFFICERS PROTEST DE BLASIO OUTSIDE DEMOCRATIC DEBATE: ‘CAN’T RUN THE CITY, CAN’T RUN THE COUNTRY’

De Blasio was surrounded by other Democrats demanding Pantaleo be fired, and was interrupted by protesters demanding the same.

“How dare the mayor say it was a clean process. How dare the mayor say ‘I didn’t give my opinion, I didn’t talk to anyone,’” Lynch said, before addressing de Blasio. “You didn’t have to talk to anyone, you’re talking to the cameras, you talked to the nation the other day and you said justice will be served for that family and you sent your message to the judge advocate.”

Approximately 20 police officers followed de Blasio to Detroit, where they protested over pay, alleging that they are paid on average 30 percent less than other police forces in the region.

“Can’t run the city, can’t run the country,” the officers chanted outside the site of the debate.

But it is what cops see as de Blasio’s failure to back his officers that has angered the union the most. On Friday, Lynch said de Blasio has lost the confidence of the force and “brought the police department to the gutter.”

He also warned officers that the case shows they won’t have the backing of City Hall if they are put in a situation where they have to put their hands on an alleged perpetrator.

“Don’t believe when they give you that story in the academy, ‘let’s get out there and do it for the gipper’ because they’re not going to back you,” he said. “The gipper’s not going to be there, the mayor’s not going to be there.”

“Is the police commissioner going to be there?” he asked. “We’ll find out.”

22 percent of millennials feel like they have ‘no friends,’ report claims

All the followers, none of the friends.

Social media-savvy millennials may make up the loneliest generation in America, according to a new survey by market research firm YouGov.

The poll of 1,254 adults aged 18 and older found that 27 percent of millennials have no close friends, 25 percent have no “acquaintances” and 22 percent — or 1 in 5 — have no buddies at all. This compares with only 9 percent of Baby Boomers and 15 percent of Gen Xers who reported having zero chums.

A third of the 20- and 30-somethings also reported feeling lonely often or always, compared with 20 percent of Gen Xers and 15 percent of boomers. (Sext-happy Gen Z was not included in the survey results, nor was the older Silent Generation.)

On the bright side, close to half — 49 percent — of millennials said they had one to four “close friends” and 70 percent said they had at least one “best friend.” Although, based on the other stats, that best friend is possibly their only friend.

Also, 38 percent of millennials reported having made a new friend in the last six months. The most common place for Americans to make friends? High school, according to 87 percent of respondents.

The high rate of loneliness in young people may be because many find it tough to find companions: According to the survey, a third of Americans feel making friends is difficult. For 53 percent, it’s because they’re shy. Another 27 percent claim it’s because they “don’t feel like they need friends.”

The survey didn’t dig much further than the numbers, but writers reference a December study published in the Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology which links social media and a lower quality of life. “Here’s the bottom line: Using less social media than you normally would leads to significant decreases in both depression and loneliness,” says study author Melissa Hunt.

EasyJet apologizes for stranding at least 130 passengers on British island for 3 days

Budget airline EasyJet has apologized after at least 130 passengers experienced an unwanted extension to their time in Jersey after their flight to Newcastle, England, was delayed by three days due to a “technical issue” with an aircraft.

On July 30, flight EZY6474 out of the British Channel Island of Jersey, was pushed back multiple times due to “technical issues” with the scheduled plane that ultimately required a replacement aircraft to be sent, USA Today reports.

Frustrated passengers took to social media to voice their woes, with one commenter claiming that the situation took a “very serious” turn as some people ran out of medication.

“@Easyjet people are in tears. People have run out of medication. It’s becoming a very serious issue very quickly,” one Twitter user blasted the airline. “There are elderly passengers, children, and others who are struggling.”

“Been stuck in Jersey Airport for 48 hours. We were due to depart on Tuesday afternoon and it’s now Thursday afternoon,” another moaned. “I know all the staff in duty free by their first names and also know their blood type. I’m very over it.”

Others called out the carrier for a general lack of information on the situation, while another shared a photo of a large group of exhausted-looking passengers waiting around for updates at Jersey Airport.

Though reps for EasyJet did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment on the story, they did confirm to USA Today that passengers affected by flight EZY6474’s delay were given hotel accommodations, meals and the choice to transfer to alternate flights for free.

“We are very sorry that the flight EZY6474 from Jersey to Newcastle on 30 July was delayed overnight,” EasyJet spokesperson Holly Mitchell told the outlet. “This was due to a technical issue with the aircraft which required an engineering inspection.

“Engineers attended the aircraft but unfortunately this could not be resolved which caused a further delay. The flight was due to operate this morning but the issue was unable to be resolved and so a replacement aircraft will operate the flight from Jersey later today,” she continued.

“We understand the frustration this will have caused to our customers and we continue to do everything possible to minimize the impact of the delay,” Mitchell said. “We provided for hotel accommodation and meals as well as the option of transferring to an alternative flight free of charge.”

The Independent reports that flight EZY6474 eventually landed on Thursday evening.

Moving forward, Mitchell noted that passengers are entitled to compensation with EU261, the European Union’s regulation on compensation for airline passengers for delayed and canceled flights.
