    If you’ve been tuned into the Minneapolis public safety scene, you know that for years, Reclaim the Block and other grassroots community groups have been asking the city to do one thing: stop investing in policing. Budget meeting after budget meeting, they’d turn out with their petitions and signs, demanding the city put less money into its police department and more money into programs that stop crimes from happening in the first place – affordable housing, addiction counseling, violence prevention programs. The council’s been listening. “I think we’ve had a vision for a while of wanting to see another kind...

    Father, mother in their 30s; children range from 11 months to 4 years old SAN ANTONIO – A family of six was found dead in an SUV in a garage at a home in Stone Oak on Thursday, San Antonio police said. The call began as a welfare check Thursday morning, when officers were first dispatched to a home in the 100 block of Red Willow after a friend of one of the residents notified police that he hadn’t heard from him in a while. Upon arrival, officers entered the home and smelled “heavy, noxious fumes” coming from inside the...
  • NY leads nation in ‘excess deaths’ in pandemic — poor leadership seems the cause

    How deadly is COVID-19? It’s difficult to say with certainty, because there’s so much we don’t know. We don’t know how many people had the virus or have it now, how many people had mild symptoms or none at all, how many people got sick but didn’t show up at hospitals. Death certificates tell us with certainty that someone has died, but they often don’t provide certainty about the cause of death. It is extremely rare for people who are otherwise healthy to die of COVID-19. Most of the people who die with COVID-19 — 98 percent in one study...

    If you still need proof that mainstream media, particularly the two major leftist cable news channels, are driving a narrative built around an anti-American agenda, one needs only look at the tragic case of David Dorn. The murder of the 77-year-old former St. Louis Metro Police captain at the hands of looters in front of a pawn shop has drawn zero coverage from CNN and MSNBC. nearly 24-hours after his death was livestreamed on several Facebook Live pages. Fox News covered it. USA Today covered it. Most conservative news outlets have covered it heavily. This is big news. In an...

    The federal government’s first tally of nursing-home deaths from the coronavirus shows nearly 26,000 fatalities nationwide — and that doesn’t even include all of them, according to a new report. A letter sent to state governors said at least 25,923 residents of nursing homes have been killed by COVID-19, ABC News reported. In addition, at least 449 nursing home staffers have died of the disease, according to the Sunday letter from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
  • COVID Senicide – The Overlooked Tragedy

    American ^ | June 1, 2020 | Brian C. Joondeph
    Senicide is not a new disinfectant or the latest drug touted as a cure for the Chinese coronavirus, but instead is the systematic killing of the elderly. It’s specific to the elderly, as opposed to genocide, the extermination of entire peoples on racial, religious, national, or ethnic grounds. Another term, when used generally and not specific to Nazi atrocities, is holocaust, slaughter on a mass scale. What have we been witnessing? Nursing homes care for the elderly and infirm in our society. These vulnerable citizens have fared poorly during the Wuhan virus pandemic. As Forbes reports, 2.1 million Americans, representing...

    Protests erupting across the nation over the past week — and law enforcement’s response to them — are threatening to upend efforts by health officials to track and contain the spread of coronavirus just as those efforts were finally getting underway. Health experts need newly infected people to remember and recount everyone they’ve interacted with over several days in order to alert others who may have been exposed, and prevent them from spreading the disease further. But that process, known as contact tracing, relies on people knowing who they’ve been in contact with — a daunting task if they’ve been...

    Kayleigh McEnany's White House press briefings instantly became must-watch TV when she first took the podium on May 1. You need only watch one to see why, and it's not because of her looks. Or at least not entirely. The one on Tuesday, May 26, was particularly entertaining, first as a display of a certain kind of journalism and second as show of how faulty data can still have their uses. The fireworks began when Ryan Lizza had his chance to pop a question. Lizza is a decent representative of the type. Since graduating from U.C. Berkeley in the mid-1990s,...

    The number of confirmed coronavirus cases at Belle Reve Assisted Living Center is 25 residents and in-patients, plus 5 employees, according to the data. At Belle Reve Health Care Center, there are 10 coronavirus cases among patients and residents, with the number of deaths and employee cases less than five. Belle Reve accounts for nearly half of the 18 deaths reported so far in Pike County. The totals released by the state do not specify how many of those who died were employees or how many were residents. The department of health says the intention of the data is “to...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump asked via Twitter if NBC would fire political talk show host Joe Scarborough based on an “unsolved mystery” years ago in Florida.Trump added, “Investigate!” in the Wednesday tweet.It was an apparent reference to the death of Lori Klausutis, who worked in Scarborough’s Fort Walton Beach congressional office.THE FACTS:The 2001 death was investigated after Klausutis was found dead in the office. It isn’t considered a mystery.An autopsy revealed that Klausutis had an undiagnosed heart condition and a coroner concluded she passed out and hit her head as she fell. The coroner said the head...

    As Governor Andrew Cuomo faced a spirited challenge in his bid to win New York’s 2018 Democratic primary, his political apparatus got a last-minute boost: a powerful healthcare industry group suddenly poured more than $1m into a Democratic committee backing his campaign. Less than two years after that flood of cash from the Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA), Cuomo signed legislation last month quietly shielding hospital and nursing home executives from the threat of lawsuits stemming from the coronavirus outbreak. The provision, inserted into an annual budget bill by Cuomo’s aides, created one of the nation’s most explicit immunity...

    A book published 66 years ago and still in print is an essential reference for understanding most of the data that you see about the pandemic afflicting the world today. Written by Darrell Huff and illustrated by Irving Geis, How to Lie With Statistics is both sardonic and a serious lesson in the abuse of math for propaganda. Whether or not it was studied by our Trump-hating media anxious to make the U.S. look bad, some of its lessons are being employed. A few days ago, we learned that the mortality rate from the coronavirus is lower than touted by...

    Most leaders in Judaeo-Christian faiths believe scripture teaches that all human lives are valuable and deserving of protection. But there are some who stray from the teaching and promote abortion. A group of New York state clergy members recently advocated for abortion at the state capital, Christian News Network reports. Together, abortion activists who identify as Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist, Episcopalian, Baptist, Unitarian and Jewish urged New York state lawmakers to support abortion and Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in the United States, according to the report. “As pastors, we believe in New Yorkers’ ability to get the health care...
  • New York, Texas See Fewest COVID-19 Fatalities Since March

    Two of America’s largest states saw the fewest fatalities with COVID-19 this week since March. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters Tuesday that the state recorded just 73 deaths linked to the new disease over the past 24 hours. “In this absurd new reality, that is good news. Any other time and place when we lose 73 New Yorkers, it’s tragic,” Cuomo said. “It’s tragic now, but relative to where we’ve been, we’re on the other side of the curve, and that is the lowest number that we’ve had.” The daily deaths with COVID-19 peaked in New York at...

    New York nursing homes were forced to accept more than 4,500 coronavirus patients from hospitals thanks to an order from Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a tally by The Associated Press found. Cuomo has come under heated criticism for his March 25 order forcing recovering COVID-19 patients into New York nursing homes — a decision blamed for the state’s high body count among the elderly. The governor waited roughly six weeks before reversing the order on May 10. The New York State Department of Health refused to release the results of an internal survey on how many coronavirus patients...

    Four Minneapolis police officers linked to the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white officer pinned his knee against the suspect's neck as he struggled to breathe, were fired Tuesday, Mayor Jacob Frey said. "This is the right call," Frey added in a statement on Twitter. Frey and Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo addressed the incident Tuesday afternoon. Initially, the officers involved had been placed on paid leave but their status was soon changed to an outright firing. "When Mayor Frey appointed me as chief of the Minneapolis police department, I was very steadfast and...

    We Americans gamble every day. Risk taking (gambling if you will) is part and parcel of our culture. Consider the slang expressions we use that are drawn from poker. A guy who can’t be trusted is sometimes called a “four flusher.” Norwegian farmers say, “You betcha,” which is Minnesotan for "you bet". Or, when something looks like a sure thing, “You can bet the farm.” In truth, we take risks every morning when we crawl out from under the covers.  One of the biggest problems with the daily reports coming from our health experts concerning the Wuhan Flu numbers is...

    Trauma doctors at a northern California medical center say the hospital has seen a huge spike in suicide attempts amid the coronavirus COVID-19 lockdowns. Dr. Mike deBoisblanc, head of the trauma at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek near San Francisco, said the loss of more than 37 million jobs across the country amid state shutdowns of businesses deemed “nonessential” and lengthy lockdowns have affected mental health.“We’ve never seen numbers like this, in such a short period of time,” he said. “I mean we’ve seen a year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks,” deBoisblanc told ABC-7....
