    There was a smattering of boos when players from FC Dallas and Nashville SC collectively took a knee during the national anthem before their MLS game on Wednesday night in Frisco, Texas. Dallas defender Reggie Cannon said he was disgusted by the boos at Toyota Stadium when players and officials knelt to call attention to racial injustice. He said teammate Ryan Hollingshead turned to him afterward and said he was sorry. “You can't even have support from your own fans in your own stadium. It's baffling to me,” Cannon said. "As a team we try to give the best possible...

    The Our World in Data project (website: ourworldindata.org), from the Oxford Martin School of the University of Oxford, contains a wealth of information on COVID-19 (and on many other subjects, too) that anybody, even the lying media, can view through interactive charts. I was curious to know just how far along we are in the progression of the pandemic here in the U.S., and from their tables I extracted the following information for confirmed COVID-19 cases as a percentage of people tested (weekly intervals, three-day rolling average): March 16, 2020: 6.5%; March 23, 11.2%; March 31, 15.0%. April 6, 17.2%;...

    British ‘Black Lives Matter’ rioters recently tore down a historic statue of Edward Colston, reportedly a 17th-century slave trader. The statue was in Bristol, England. A statue of a protester was secretly installed overnight to replace the slave trader, Colston. Apparently, the locality had not approved this statue though, and it only lasted a little longer than a day before being tossed into what appears to be a mobile dumpster by the local authorities. CNN tweeted about the illicit statue when it was initially raised, with a link to the story. Nothing in the tweet mentioned that it wasn’t approved...

    As the pandemic panic porn continues because identified cases are rising, Dr. Fauci is back on television, and the media is once again demanding a national response. However, there is news they don’t share with you that could help reduce the already unwarranted levels of fear. Obviously, that doesn’t fit their partisan agenda. Many commentators have noted that rising case numbers are not necessarily a reason to sound the alarm. The fear with COVID-19 was always of overwhelming the hospital system. The correct numbers to look at are COVID-19 hospitalizations, the percent of positive tests, and the age breakdown for...
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT OPOSSUMS EAT VIRTUALLY ALL THE TICKS IN YOUR YARD?

    ...The opposum's ability to munch down on the annoying blood suckers took even researchers by surprise. "I had no suspicion they'd be such efficient tick-killing animals," said Richard Ostfeld, of the Cary Institute for Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, New York. "Don't hit opossums if they've playing dead in the road." Opossums are crazy, fastidious, grooming animals like cats, and when they find a tick, it's right down the hatch. Researchers found many digested ticks in the feces of cooperative opossums. Cheers to the guy who got that job! Ostfeld said that one opossum can kill and eat some 5,000 ticks...

    As journalists across the US scramble to cover the impact of the coronavirus, they are grappling with a bitter irony: as demand for their stories soars, the decline of the business model that funds them is speeding up catastrophically. The devastating sweep of Covid-19 is the biggest story in a generation, and for most newspapers and news sites it has triggered record numbers of readers. Yet the virus, industry experts warn, will spell the end for “hundreds” of those organizations, laying off journalists and closing titles.

    It's probably a little early to say for sure, but based on what's happening now, it almost seems like a long dark winter is finally lifting. You can see it going on all around the world. First, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Yeltsin is hanging on. He's still in the hospital, still in intensive care, but based on the reports seen, he's not getting worse. He's still not on the ventilator. The latest is a confirmation from No. 10 that he doesn't have pneumonia. No news is good news. He's got someone running the place while he fights. Everyone of decency in...

    Officials at Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas say they have canceled 261 abortions since Tuesday, after the state effectively banned the procedure. Sarah Wheat, the chief external affairs officer for Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas in Austin, said the health centers have also been prevented from helping patients seeking abortions. “Our health centers have received 583 calls from patients seeking appointments during that same time period,” she said in a statement. On Sunday, Gov. Greg Abbott issued on order halting procedures that are “not immediately medically necessary” during the coronavirus outbreak. The next day, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton confirmed...

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he can re-open the economy while protecting at-risk populations from the coronavirus despite warnings from medical experts that strict containment measures are still needed. 'Our people want to return to work,' the president wrote on Twitter. 'They will practice Social Distancing and all else, and Seniors will be watched over protectively & lovingly. We can do two things together. THE CURE CANNOT BE WORSE (by far) THAN THE PROBLEM! Congress MUST ACT NOW. We will come back strong!,' he argued.

    A man in Florida told police and a local news station that he gunned down an AK-47-wielding robber because he didn’t want to “go out like a punk.” The man, 60-year-old Donovan Stewart, told CBS Miami that the robber pointed the semi-automatic weapon at him while he, his wife and his son were in his van early Monday in the Liberty City section of Miami. “He put an AK-47 to my damn face,” Stewart told the news station. “I am from Kingston town in Jamaica, and I am not going to go out like a punk.

    READING, Pa. — Pennsylvania overhauled its child sexual abuse laws Tuesday more than a year after a grand jury report showed the cover-up of hundreds of cases of abuse in most of Pennsylvania’s Roman Catholic dioceses over the last seven decades. The central bill signed by Gov. Tom Wolf gives future victims of child sex abuse more time to file lawsuits and to end time limits for police to file criminal charges. The grand jury report spurred several states to change their laws and other states to begin similar investigations.

    FULL TITLE: Healthy Twins Survive Chemical Abortion After Planned Parenthood Failed to Disclose Second Child In Utero Recently, a Tennessee woman gave birth to healthy twin babies who miraculously survived a chemical abortion attempt at a Knoxville, TN, Planned Parenthood. The incredible story of these miracle babies, as told by one pro-life physician, underscores just how sorely the abortion giant fails to meet the needs of women, both from a medical standpoint and a human one. Displaying obvious ineptitude from the start, the nation’s largest abortion business only informed the woman she was pregnant with twins after the chemical abortion...

At Canning Town station in east London dozens of commuters were seen pulling two campaigners, dressed in jacket and tie, from the top of a Jubilee Line Tube train after they unfurled a banner saying, "Business as usual = death".

    The winners of the 2019 Little League World Series flew home from Washington to Louisiana in style -- aboard Air Force One. President Donald Trump met with the Eastbank All-Stars on Friday at the White House. At the meeting, Trump asked the team members' parents whether the team could hop on Air Force One for the ride back to Louisiana since Trump was already headed to the state for a campaign rally. The team then met again with Trump at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, on the tarmac near Air Force One, and they all ascended onto the presidential...
