Uber driver fired for refusing to drive woman to get abortion

Uber has permanently banned a driver in upstate New York for refusing to take a 20-year-old college student to an abortion facility. The incident went viral on mainstream media after the student wrote about the “worst, most backward day of my life” on Reddit. Uber confirmed “that the driver was removed from the service as his actions violated the company’s community guidelines,” according to Yahoo Lifestyle. Although the driver offered to take her back home, the student declined, and instead, after reaching her boyfriend, called a cab and went through with the abortion. She now wants to sue the driver,…

Next Stop On The War Train – Iran, Venezuela Or North Korea?

If you learn one rule about how governments function today, it should be that political leaders are usually puppets and the real decision makers are almost never out in the open. The questions is, how does one know for certain that this is the case with a specific leader? His rhetoric might be compelling, he probably knows every buzzword to spark your interest, and he might even throw you some legislative scraps from the political table every once in a while to make you think that he’s going to follow through on his campaign promises, but does he actually believe…

New York City tickets 12 people for defying measles vaccination order

New York City has issued civil summonses to 12 people it said were not complying with a mandatory measles vaccination order as the number of recorded cases in the city’s worst outbreak since 1991 rose to 390, according to data released on Wednesday. The city’s outbreak of the highly contagious and sometimes deadly virus began last October and has been largely confined to children in Orthodox Jewish communities in Brooklyn. Two of the 61 additional cases confirmed since Thursday are in pregnant women, the city’s Health Department said in a statement. The Health Department took the unusual step earlier this…

VIDEO: Masked, heavily armed men escort migrants across AZ border

U.S. Customs and Border Protection released video over the weekend showing the “escalation of tactics” used to smuggle illegal immigrants into the country, which now apparently involves heavily armed security. #USBP cameras capture armed men escorting Central American mother and son across the U.S./Mexico border in #Arizona @CBP video available here: https://t.co/xyD26HRlVj pic.twitter.com/dvI3c4ddO6 — CBP Arizona (@CBPArizona) April 23, 2019 “U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Ajo station apprehended a woman and her eight-year-old son after witnessing armed subjects escort the pair into the United States, west of Lukeville, Arizona, Saturday night,” the CBP reports. “Border Patrol cameras observed…

The Homeless Are Dying in Record Numbers on the Streets of Los Angeles

A record number of homeless people — 918 last year alone — are dying across Los Angeles County, on bus benches, hillsides, railroad tracks and sidewalks. Deaths have jumped 76% in the past five years, outpacing the growth of the homeless population, according to a Kaiser Health News analysis of the coroner’s data. Health officials and experts have not pinpointed a single cause for the sharp increase in deaths, but they say rising substance abuse may be a major reason. The surge also reflects growth in the number of people who are chronically homeless and those who don’t typically use…

Amazon and Facebook Listed Among the Dozen Most Dangerous Workplaces

The National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (COSH) today released its annual “dirty dozen” list of employers operating some of the most dangerous workplaces in America, and Amazon topped the list for the second year running. Among the newcomers, Facebook has now earned a spot on the list. Specifically, COSH cites six fatalities since last year’s “dirty dozen”—three of whom were crewing Atlas Air flight 3591, which crashed in late February. Two other individuals were killed by a collapsing warehouse wall at a facility in Baltimore during a storm, while a sixth fell while in the process of constructing…

Mexican Troops Cross onto American Soil, Confront US Soldiers

It’s no secret that the U.S.-Mexico border can be a chaotic place. Cartel battles are shockingly common in the area, and both illicit drugs and illegal aliens move across the border with alarming ease. That confusion hit even higher levels just over a week ago after Mexican troops pointed their weapons at U.S. military personnel who were operating on American soil, highlighting just how complex and potentially deadly the region can be. The tense situation occurred on April 13, while two U.S. Army members were conducting an operation very close to the Rio Grande, which marks the official border between…

Graphic Video Shows 2 Cops Savagely Beat a Woman With Baton and Fists Over Traffic Stop

A disturbing video was uploaded to Facebook over the weekend showing two Alabama cops beating a woman for over a minute during a traffic stop. The violence in the video was reportedly so over the top that police are now investigating the use of force. The incident happened about 7 p.m. Friday in the 1700 block of McFarland Boulevard when the officers pulled over a woman over an alleged traffic violation. The video was taken by a witness who was in a nearby establishment. According to the woman who took the video, who wishes to remain anonymous, she felt helpless…

Get Ready, Southern California — Mini Earthquakes are Hitting Every 3 Minutes

Will the Big One actually be just the sum of a million little ones? Will California slowly shake-and-slide into the Pacific like a frog cooked in a slowly heating pot of eventually-boiling water? More evidence suggesting that will be the case can be found in a new study using an old technology in a new way to discover fingerprints of strange little quakes that have never been mapped before … and the road they expose is terrifying. Did you just feel something? “To overcome these limitations, we applied a template matching detection technique to the entire waveform archive of the…

Starbucks is installing needle-disposal boxes in locations across America

Starbucks’ efforts to address opioid use and improperly disposed needles in its bathrooms are expanding. Starbucks stores in at least 25 US markets have installed needle-disposal boxes in bathrooms in recent months. By this summer, the chain aims to have installed sharps boxes in bathrooms in all regions where such action has been deemed necessary. The coffee giant also allows local district managers or store managers to put in requests to have sharps-disposal boxes installed in their locations’ bathrooms. “We are always working and listening to our partners on ways we can better support them when it comes to issues…

Every liberal city in America is headed toward Venezuela… get out while you can

Mike Adams, Natural News-Liberal cities across America are collapsing into Third World status. It’s not just the fact that San Francisco’s streets are now littered with drug needles and human feces, either. Seattle is also collapsing into rampant homelessness and drug addiction, creating an entire class of impoverished, homeless residents who are breeding grounds for HIV and other infectious diseases. Yet Seattle’s liberal city leaders — like all “progressives” — are unwilling to take any action to resolve the problems in the first place. Instead, they enact new policies that make the problems worse while calling it “progress.” Local reporter…

County to pay $100k to black worker who complained ‘Blue Lives Matter’ demeans ‘Black Lives Matter’

Multnomah County has agreed to pay $100,000 to a black employee who claimed the county fostered a racially insensitive workplace after she complained about a co-worker who pinned up a “Blue Lives Matter” flag. Karimah Guion-Pledgure claimed in her January lawsuit that the flag “demeans” and “denigrates” the Black Lives Matter movement. But some co-workers didn’t agree, and Guion-Pledgure claims they harassed her for it — leading her to suffer debilitating stress and health problems, the suit said. A probation officer hung up the flag in September 2017 above the probation officer’s desk, and after Guion-Pledgure and other black co-workers…

NEVER turn in guns, magazines or banned accessories to the government: They are creating a database of those who own gun gear

When the federal ban on bump stocks went into place, existing owners were required to destroy their bump stocks or turn them over to authorities. The attachments let semi-automatic rifles mimic the firing rate of a fully automatic weapon, and the ban came about in response to the Las Vegas shooting of 2017. Although the federal government did not offer compensation for handing in the accessories, some states set up buyback programs. In Washington state, for example, people received $150 for every bump stock they turned over to state police. The program attracted a lot of people; violators could face…

Thief sucked used Burger King grease into 1,600 gallon truck container to resell for biofuel

Guess used Burger King grease is the new copper wires nowadays. The Associated Press social media editor who composed this little beauty below deserves some kind of a prize today. A whopper of a haul: Police say a Virginia man stole hundreds of gallons of used cooking grease from a Burger King. But he couldn’t give police the slip. https://t.co/lAK49gjwVQ #odd — AP Oddities (@AP_Oddities) April 19, 2019 So does the headline writer. From “Grease is the way we are stealing in northern Virginia” — Alvaro Mendez Flores of Richmond admitted to the April 4 theft. Court documents state Mendez…

NRA’s Dirty Laundry Exposed as Pro-Gun Group Cleans House

On April 12, the National Rifle Association filed suit in a Virginia court, accusing their long-time PR company, Ackerman McQueen, of failing to provide detailed billing, and failure to disclose contracts with NRA staff and officers that might demonstrate a conflict of interest, including an Ack-Mac contract with NRA President Ollie North. As the news of the shocking lawsuit made the rounds of mainstream media and was just sinking in – especially to most of the members of the NRA Board of Directors, who had no advance warning about the suit – a new exposé on the shady dealings of…

Police are now taking roadside blood samples to catch impaired drivers

It was about 6:30 on a Friday night in January when Phoenix Police Det. Kemp Layden pulled over a white Jeep Cherokee that was speeding and weaving in and out of its lane. The 47-year-old driver spoke slowly, his eyes were red and watery, and his pupils were dilated. The inside of the Jeep reeked of marijuana, and the driver failed a field sobriety test, which includes walking heel-to-toe and standing on one leg. He told the officer he had smoked marijuana a few hours earlier and taken a prescription sedative the night before, police say. The man passed a…

“Text me $$$”: Debt collectors may soon be able to text and email consumers

Debt collecting is an age-old business but it may soon receive a 21st-century revamp when the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an agency created in the wake of the financial crisis to protect consumers, proposes new rules for the industry. Among the changes may be whether debt collectors can text and email borrowers as they pursue overdue funds.  The idea of debt collectors adding new methods of communication to their arsenal may stir annoyance, if not fear, among some consumers. After all, the debt-collection industry isn’t exactly beloved among consumers, with the CFPB recording 84,500 complaints about debt collection in 2017,…

Fact You May Not Know: America Has Nuked Itself 1,032 Times

A handful of nuclear tests were conducted in Alaska, or more specifically the Aleutian island of Amchitka. The first test, in October 1965, was designed to test nuclear detection techniques and had a yield of eighty kilotons. A second test occurred four years later, and had a yield of one megaton, or one thousand kilotons. The third and largest test, Cannikin, was a test of the Spartan antiballistic-missile warhead and had a yield of less than five megatons. Nuclear weapons have a mysterious quality. Their power is measured in plainly visible blast pressure and thermal energy common to many weapons, but…

Why Do Most People in This Country Work, while Others Never Will?

It was with much trepidation that I planned a recent trip to Chicago.  I was informed by many friends that Chicago is a great city and a great place to visit.  However, Chicago is in the news for all the wrong reasons, with daily reports of shootings and violence reaching historically high levels. The Chicago you experience as a tourist is very different from the city being reported on on a daily basis in the news.  Downtown Chicago was crowded with tourists and provided a visitor every impression of being a prosperous, vibrant, and highly livable city. Visiting the areas around the Loop,…

Outbreak of Colorblindness Strikes Chicago Reporters

Chicago picked a strange time to go all colorblind on us. The occasion was the occasional riot in one of America’s premier high-end shopping districts: the Magnificent Mile. Wednesday night, 500 people rampaged through downtown looting, destroying property, attacking white people, defying police, stopping traffic, threatening tourists, and created lots of mayhem and chaos. All on video. Some of which you can find here. If local media is to be believed, race had nothing to do with the fact that every single one of the rioters was black.  Strange behavior from a local media that is obsessed with race, especially…

After a $14-Billion Upgrade, New Orleans’ Levees Are Sinking

The $14 billion network of levees and floodwalls that was built to protect greater New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina was a seemingly invincible bulwark against flooding. But now, 11 months after the Army Corps of Engineers completed one of the largest public works projects in world history, the agency says the system will stop providing adequate protection in as little as four years because of rising sea levels and shrinking levees. The growing vulnerability of the New Orleans area is forcing the Army Corps to begin assessing repair work, including raising hundreds of miles of levees and floodwalls that form a meandering…

Stranger Walks Into 11 Yr Old Girls Room Wearing No Pants, Gets Shot 6 Times By Homeowner

Donald Oliver, 38, is charged with first-degree burglary, fourth-degree assault and heroin possession. He’s accused of entering a home in south Louisville, KY around 7 a.m. Sunday morning through a window. Oliver went into an 11-year-old girl’s bedroom, undressed and then went into the kitchen in only his underwear, according to an arrest report. A male homeowner demanded Oliver leave and got into a physical fight with him, injuring his hand, police said. He yelled to his girlfriend for help. She fetched a gun from the bedroom which he then used to shoot Oliver multiple times. Oliver was taken to…

Baby boy born without skin in Texas

When Ja’bari Grey was born on New Year’s Day in San Antonio, he lacked an organ most people take for granted — his skin. Missing that crucial barrier between his body and the world, the 3-month-old’s mother has been unable to properly hug, snuggle or kiss him. Doctors in Houston, where the baby was transferred on April 12, are racing to discover the cause of Ja’bari’s condition so they may better treat him. On Tuesday, the baby boy was stable and doing well. “We want to find an answer right now, but everything is in the air,” said mother Priscilla…

Not a single gun magazine has been turned in to NJ state police… citizens are arming up against a government they no longer trust to protect them

After constitutional conservatives managed to roll back existing gun control legislation while stopping new bills from getting passed in recent years, the [un]Democratic Left is now working ‘round the clock to impose new restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms, despite the fact that the Second Amendment guarantees the right “shall not be infringed.” One of those enclaves is New Jersey, where Democrats have implemented what is becoming a standard anti-gun tactic: Depriving gun owners of the right carry as much ammunition as they feel is appropriate to defend themselves. Specifically, as reported by Ammoland, the state’s authoritarians passed…

Alabama Police Ruined a Couple’s Lives Over $50 of Weed. Now the Charges Against Them Have Been Dropped

More than a year after police raided an Alabama couple’s house, upturned their lives, and seized thousands of dollars from them over a small amount of marijuana, the criminal charges against them have been dropped. On Monday, an Alabama state circuit judge dismissed the misdemeanor drug charges against Greg and Teresa Almond at the request of prosecutors and ordered that their property be returned to them. As Reason reported last week, the Almonds filed a federal civil rights lawsuit earlier this year against the Randolph County Sheriff’s Department, alleging that in January of 2018, the sheriff’s narcotics unit busted down…

DEBANKING: Chase Bank says ‘moral character’ a reason why they don’t do business with ‘those types of people’

Project Veritas has released a video report (the full 10 minute version can be found below) about a man whose Chase bank account was shut down without being given a reason. The report, which includes testimony from Enrique Tarrio, the man whose Chase account was terminated, features undercover video of conversations with bank professionals discussing the account’s closure. Said Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, “Are there unwritten Chase policies that Mr. Tarrio and others were in breach of? ‘Debanking’ appears to be a new frontier in American politics.” Chase #debanking story begs transparency. "moral character" judgment, according to chase media…

After Washington D.C. Moves Homeless Into Upscale Apartments, The Place Turns Into Ghetto

The left-wing city of Washington D.C. thought it had a great idea to give homeless people, drug addicts, and gangbangers a housing voucher paid for by the taxpayers so they could move into an upscale apartment complex. And, wouldn’t you know it, the place turned into a ghetto in short order. The left-wing city council came up with the housing voucher plan to “help” poor people live in an upscale neighborhood. Officials just imagined that these poor people, these drug addicts, gangbangers, and homeless people would suddenly straighten up, fly right, and be oh, so thankful for this great opportunity…

Rockland County threatens measles patients with $2,000-a-day fine

On Tuesday, after having the previous emergency order banning non-vaccinated minors from public places overturned by a judge, officials announced their next steps to combat the ongoing measles “outbreak” in Rockland County (by law, emergency declarations are only allowed to last five days). “County Executive Ed Day and Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert announced a Communicable Disease and Exposure Exclusion Order, which mandates that anyone with measles or anyone exposed to the illness avoid public spaces or face a $2,000-a-day fine. They also followed New York City’s lead by requiring students in two zip codes — 10952 and 10977 —…

Rapid increase in natural catastrophes is already hitting global supply chains

A worldwide increase in natural catastrophes is already hitting global supply chains and causing a spike in business interruption insurance claims, a senior executive with Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty has warned. AGCS chief regions and markets officer Sinead Browne said this trend, which she directly linked to climate change, was pushing premiums up around the world, adding this “correction” was likely to continue for the “next few years”. While property damage is the most obvious effect of extreme weather events, Ms Browne said business interruption resulting from these events was proving costlier, claim for claim, than property damage. “The…

Kim Foxx Called Jussie Smollett ‘Washed Up Celeb Who Lied to Cops’ in Text Messages

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx referred to actor Jussie Smollett as a “washed up celeb who lied to cops” in texts messages to members of her staff sent roughly two weeks prior to her office dropping all charges against the Empire star. “Sooo……I’m recused, but when people accuse us of overcharging cases …16 counts on a class 4 (felony) becomes exhibit A,” Foxx wrote a staffer on March 8th, the same day Jussie Smollett was indicted on 16 felony counts by a Cook County grand jury for filing a false police report on January 29th. The Chicago Police Department charge that Smollett staged a hate crime against…

Baptist Pastor Says Bank of America Shut Down All Of His Church’s Bank Accounts

Pastor Steven Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona said Monday on YouTube that Bank of America shut down all the bank accounts of his church. “This morning, I found out that Bank of America shut down all of our bank accounts froze our accounts without notice and we can’t even get our money out,” Anderson said on YouTube. “We can’t even walk into the bank and withdraw our money they just froze everything, shut everything down.” “They’re supposedly going to send us a cashier’s check in like two weeks for all the money that was in…

Gun Control Advocates Want Banks to Refuse Service to Gun Companies

Anti-gun activists and politicians are doing everything they can to effectively disarm the public. Already this year, extreme and unconstitutional gun control measures have been proposed at the state and federal levels. There has been a lot of pushback, thankfully: a growing number of counties (and even some states) have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries and are refusing to enforce gun-control laws that infringe on the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Sheriffs in Washington, Colorado, and New Mexico have publicly stated they will refuse to enforce new gun control legislation – and some are even willing to be jailed…
