    A Mexican man detained by Border Patrol for illegal re-entry died Monday at a hospital in Texas. U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Andrew Meehan says the 45-year-old man was initially apprehended Feb. 2 and requested medical attention. He was taken to a medical center and later cleared to return to the Rio Grande City Border Patrol Station. The next day, he requested medical attention again and was taken to a hospital where he stayed until he died Monday. Meehan says the official cause of death is not yet known, but the medical center diagnosed him with cirrhosis of the...
  • Who's responsible when America chooses death?

    Many of us like to blame God for our difficulties. The reason is that it absolves us of responsibility for our bad choices. It also ensures we won’t recover. Nations are groups of individuals clumped together, primarily by geography. In a democratic nation, if a majority of the voting population chooses wisely, the entire nation will benefit from those choices (even those who oppose the choices). In a democratic republic, such as the United States, we are one step removed from our responsibility. We don’t choose the policy directly; we choose the people who in turn choose the policies and...

    From the days of the sword through the advent of the guillotine, Charles-Henri Sanson killed some 3,000 people during his bloody career. On Jan. 5, 1757, King Louis XV of France departed the Palace of Versailles. While he was walking toward his carriage, a strange man suddenly shoved past the palace guards, striking the king in the chest with a penknife. The assailant was arrested and the king was ushered inside, bleeding from what turned out to be a minor chest wound. No longer fearing for his life, King Louis’ concern shifted from his own bodily injury to the kind...
  • Next up for New York’s Democratic culture of death: Assisted suicides

    Fresh off a late-term abortion ‘victory,’ New York’s ruling Democrats are seeking to perpetuate their party’s culture of death by pursuing physician-assisted suicides, with Catholic leaders in the state poised to push back — hard. “We stand on a precipice,” Kathleen Gallagher, director of pro-life activities for New York’s Catholic Conference, told conservatives in the state recently, according to the Albany Times-Union. “We’re looking into a culture of death and our state is diving right down into that moral abyss.” Dennis Poust, speaking for the state Catholic Conference led by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, told the New York Daily News that...

  • Man dies of meth overdose before bear eats him, autopsy says

    (Gray News) – It was a meth overdose that claimed the life of a man whose body was found in Great Smoky Mountains National Park in September, not the black bear that was eating him. Park officials released a statement Monday saying William Lee Hill Jr. died of “accidental methamphetamine intoxication,” according to an autopsy from the Knox County Regional Forensic Center. The 30-year-old was found in the park near Cades Cove, TN, on September 9. “At the time of discovery, searchers encountered a bear feeding on Hill’s body,” the park statement said. “Without knowing the definitive cause of death,...

    ...From his rambling rhetoric, untutored diction, and scant intellectual formation, we may assume that Governor Cuomo has escaped the brush of Lord Acton’s aphorism that power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Cuomo’s power may not be absolute, although it has now proven deadly, but even power that is not absolute enjoys a blithe courtship with vice. His official website now displays the cook with whom he shares a home in a relationship that would have exercised John the Baptist...

    I should have known this was coming sooner or later, given my unhealthy living style and other health risk factors, but it did come, quietly on padded feet in the hushed hours of early morning. I had a silent heart attack. I woke up to take a piss but was unable then to fall back asleep. I kept waking up again to gasp for breath, which was weird. After perhaps thirty minutes of this, I gave up and arose to poke at the Internet for clues. Carbon monoxide poisoning was a possible cause, but then why were alarms not ringing...

    A University of Georgia (UGA) teaching assistant wrote Wednesday on Facebook that "some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom." He added that to suggest otherwise is "ahistorical and dangerously naive." UGA philosophy TA Irami Osei-Frimpong made the comment during a conversation on the Overheard at UGA Facebook page. The comment has since been deleted. Osei-Frimpong claimed in May 2017 that Facebook suspended him for quoting from an article which detailed how Texas A&M professor Tommy Curry had said "in order to be equal, in order to...

    The road to the Red Cross Concentration Camp is caked in frozen mud etched with tire tracks and cracking puddles. A dog jogs ahead to dig holes in the camp’s yard. The barbed-wire fence lies in a decrepit heap next to the ticket office branded with a faded swastika and, in thick capital letters, “WACHE SS”.Also, there’s also a high school next door.“Many tourists ask, ‘Oh, is this also part of the camp?’ No, it’s just a school,” explains our guide, Aleksandra Zdravkovic. She works at the tourism office of Nis, a quiet city of 190,000 in southern Serbia, and...

    Proverbs 8:36 ...he that sins against me wrongs his own soul: all they that hate me love death. Two events occurred in the last few days which give us insight into the heart of progressive liberal America and the future of the USA. These events show us what the Bible calls the "spirit of anti-Christ." The first incident is the Covington Catholic school incident on Friday 18 January. Covington Catholic is a small Kentucky Catholic School which was attending a "Right to Life" rally in Washington D.C. An edited video went viral which appeared to show the kids mocking and...

    Fox & Friends apologized on Monday after briefly airing a graphic suggesting that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead. As the show came back from commercials, they briefly showed a graphic of Ginsburg with the caption 1933-2019. The image was on screen for only a brief period of time before it was dismissed for Ainsley Earhardt‘s upcoming interview on campus culture. A screen capture of that graphic:

Viswanath’s brother, Jishnu Viswanath, told the Associated Press the couple were setting up a tripod-mounted camera near the ledge of Taft Point on Oct. 23. An inquiry into how the couple fell is ongoing. “Any deaths that happen inside the park, the National Park Service rangers do...

    In light of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s history of cancers and most recently, a surgery to have cancerous tumors removed from her lungs as well as her absence from the bench, Dr. Joseph Bentivegna writes Bader, 85, is quite ill. Dr. Bentivegna, M.D. says the media who have commented on Ginsburg’s  health are “underestimating the severity of her illness,” and that “President Trump has a reasonable chance” of replacing Ginsburg in his first term. If Trump wins reelection, the doctor believes Trump has at least an 80% chance of replacing Ginsburg — we believe that chance is much much higher.The...

    A visitor at Yosemite National Park reportedly fell to his death on Christmas Day, and the incident went unreported until now due to the ongoing government shutdown, a National Park Service spokesman said. “The incident remains under investigation, which is taking longer than usual because of the shutdown,” Andrew Muñoz, a public affairs officer for the National Park Service, told Outside Magazine Thursday. “A news release wasn’t issued because of the shutdown. We aren’t releasing more details.” NPS representatives did not respond to HuffPost’s requests for comment. (The NPS has said media lines would also be impacted by the shutdown.)...

Bre, who died Friday, was in and out of the Daily Signal offices on a near-weekly basis, as the co-host of “Problematic Women” podcast, which she worked on with our Kelsey Harkness, Lauren Evans, and more recently, Ginny Montalbano. I knew it was “Problematic Women” day because I’d often see Kelsey, Bre, and Lauren huddled up in Kelsey’s office, discussing what stories to cover. They had fun, too; when they came out of the podcast studio, they’d often be all smiles. They...
