    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | December 27, 2019 | Rich Lord
    Pittsburgh’s Public Safety Department is preparing for a New Years Eve display that only they will see: The annual lighting up of the ShotSpotter system. The system, which covers 18 square miles of Pittsburgh -- around ⅓ of the city -- uses powerful microphones to detect and locate gunshots, and occasionally misreads fireworks as a firearms discharge. On New Years Eve, according to city Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich, the system’s display “lights up like a Christmas tree” as people fire guns or fireworks into the air. He said the system picked up dozens of gunshots in the minutes leading...

    An investigation into accusations that students at last week's Army-Navy football game made white supremacist gestures determined that the students were playing a game and had no racist intentions, according to officials at West Point. Pre-game festivities aired by ESPN on Dec. 14 showed cadets on both sides of the rivalry - two West Point cadets and one Naval Academy midshipman - making gestures as a camera focused on a sideline report. At least one of the gestures resembled a white supremacist symbol described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as "the thumb and forefinger joined together in a circle,...

  • Flight manifests reveal Clinton traveled with Epstein six times [27 flights] not the four admitted

    On Monday, Clinton's press secretary Angel Urea said in a statement: In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein's airplane: One to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation." Supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip. But a Washington Examiner review of flight manifest records contradicts these claims. It shows Clinton took 27 flights on Epsteins private jet during at least six different trips. Former President Bill Clinton claimed that he...
  • Message For Trump: You Can't Trust North Korean Leader KIm Jong Un

    07/05/2019 5:49:06 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 51 replies ^ | July 5, 2019 | Donald Lambro
    WASHINGTON - President Trump met again this week with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in his continuing attempts to work out a denuclearization deal, scoring an historic first and possibly higher job approval ratings here at home. They shook hands at the demilitarized zone between the divided Korean nations, where Trump briefly walked into North Korea, becoming the first U.S. president to set foot in the isolated nation. What followed was a nearly one hour meeting where they agreed to have their teams work out the basis for future negotiations. Only this time, Trump was pursuing a far more...

    Those who accept Democrats claim that they actually care about illegal immigrants are willfully blind to history. Just ask the blue collar workers, once the backbone of the Democrat Party, whose jobs were sold to foreign countries. Or, if you prefer, ask those living in our urban ghettos that have been under Democrat mayors and city councils for the past half century.

    The results are in: she only wanted to try that hot new restaurant. A new study published Friday in the Society for Personality and Social Psychology journal found that a quarter to a third of heterosexual women have gone on a date with a guy they werent interested in just for a free meal. Foodie calls, can happen when moneys tight, the grocery store is out of a favorite frozen meal, or a must-try entree is just too extravagant to justify when the tab comes out of your own bank account. Two studies, the first conducted with 820...

    The Portland Tribune ^ | June 20, 2019 | Jim Redden
    Last week's report by CNN and The Hill that President Donald Trump's campaign is considering spending money in Oregon sparked two predictable responses disbelief that any Republican would consider campaigning for a national office in such a Democratic state and a flurry of fundraising appeals by Democrats trying to cash in on the news. Among others, the Democratic Party of Oregon sent out a fundraising email on June 11 saying, "Trump's already laying the groundwork to pull off a big upset here in Oregon in 2020 but together, we can make sure he doesn't come close. Make a...

  • Border Patrol's Worst Nightmare: ISIS Planned To Attack America Utilizing Our Weak Immigration

    06/09/2019 10:57:14 AM PDT · by rktman · 47 replies ^ | 6/8/2019 | Beth Baumann
    For years Border Patrol agents have expressed concern about America's immigration policies, saying that the United States' southern border was vulnerable. They have expressed concerns about a potential terrorist using the United States-Mexico border as a means of gaining access to America to carry out a terrorist attack. And, not surprisingly, their fears have become a reality. Border Patrol agents are extremely overwhelmed along our southern border. They are spending the majority of their time processing people instead of actually protecting our border. Up until now, we haven't really seen terrorists utilize our southern border to carry out an attack....

IRELANDS ANNUAL alcohol consumption continues to rise, despite notable decreases across the rest of Europe. It also revealed...

    While most of Donald Trumps allies braced for the release on Thursday of Special Counsel Robert Muellers report, believers in the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory approached the long-awaited publication with a sense of thrill. For years, QAnon fans have been mocked for believing that Mueller was secretly in league with the president, working hand-in-hand to uncover Satanic rituals committed by top Democrats before shipping them off to Guantanamo Bay. They had been told it was ridiculous to base their entire political worldview on a series of anonymous clues posted on internet message boards including one that claimed Hillary Clinton...

    The Federalist ^ | 03/11/2019 | David Marcus
    Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, complete with lei, took the stage at SXSW in Austin to do her first town hall as a presidential candidate Sunday night on CNN. The 37-year-old Iraq War veteran is running for president and would be the youngest, first woman, and first Hindu president in our nations history. Many pundits have placed Gabbard in the center or even right of the Democratic Party. If so, the center or right of the Democratic Party is pretty leftist. Her first question was about American intervention in the rest of the world, and how she could be against American...

    former CBS Newser and 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan claimed that mainstream news media outlets are mostly liberal, and that right-wing outlets, like Breitbart are a good way to learn information from the other side. After the conservative podcast host characterized U.S. news media as absurdly left-leaning and supportive of Democrats, Logan described the U.S. and international news media as mostly liberal, adding, most journalists are left. The media everywhere is mostly liberal, not just the U.S., assessed Logan.

    Mass migration is dangerous not only regarding terrorism, public security, culture and social security, but also the whole healthcare system, State Secretary Bence Retvari told Hungarian daily Magyar Hirlap.

  • New study finds that surgeons under stress make more mistakes in the operating room

    A new study reveals that during stressful moments in the operating room, surgeons make up to 66 percent more mistakes on patients. Using a technology that captured the electrical activity of a surgeon's heart, researchers found that during intervals of short-term stress, which can be triggered by a negative thought or a loud noise in the operating room, surgeons are much more prone to make mistakes that can cause bleeding, torn tissue, or burns. The results of the study, published in the open branch of the British Journal of Surgery, could lead to the development of protocol aiming to reduce...

    On Thursday night, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid were just some of the models who walked the catwalk in their lingerie for the 2018 Victoria's Secret show. While Victoria's Secret has previously praised themselves for championing diversity by including models of different ethnicities. The brand has faced heavy criticism for their frankly archaic view, when it comes to both plus-size and transgender models. In a time when the likes of Tess Holliday and Ashley Graham have graced the covers of Cosmopolitan and Vogue. And Giuliana Farfalla and Valentina Sampaio made history with their Playboy and Vogue covers, you...
