Police who shot Vallejo rapper 55 times in 3.5 seconds acted reasonably, report found

A retired peace officer with experience in training police officers in the use of force said the Vallejo police officers’ fatal shooting of rap artist Willie McCoy, 20, in a Taco Bell drive-thru in February was reasonable and in line with modern training and police practices,  the city attorney said. City Attorney Claudia Quintana referred to a May 17 report by Dave Blake of Brentwood-based Blake Consulting. Quintana posted Blake’s report and a news release about it on Vallejo’s website Monday. Quintana said the report details the legal background and the reasons behind Blake’s conclusions. But she said it is important to realize that there is…

Unprecedented U.S. Weather Chaos Continues: 120F In The West, More Record-Setting Flooding In The East

Global weather patterns are dramatically shifting, and week after week we keep seeing things happen that we have never seen before.  As far as our weather is concerned, this is definitely the strangest year in modern American history, and many believe that what we have witnessed so far is just the beginning.  Up until just recently, the endless rain, catastrophic flooding and horrific tornado outbreaks in the middle of the country have been dominating weather headlines.  But now the west coast is getting into the act.  This week, new record high temperatures have been established in city after city, and…

The Surprising Forces Behind Mass Murder in the US

After the recent shooting in Virginia Beach, Democrat politicians said US gun owners were causing mass murder. Biased journalists said the same thing, and both of them are fantastically wrong. The real mass murderers are the people who claim to be for “gun safety”. The results are shocking once you look at the data and once you uncover a few facts. Unfortunately, our biased media is spewing spin rather than truth. Do guns save lives? Honest citizens defend themselves thousands of times every day. That isn’t rhetorical hyperbole, but hard statistics. We defend ourselves about every 30 seconds. Honest and…

California Cities May Now Be Required To Keep ‘Safe Parking Lots’ Open For Homeless Camps

If a new law passes the Calfornia state assembly, major California cities will be required to keep and maintain “safe parking lots” for people who make their homes in cars and recreational vehicles. Cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco are already struggling with unmanageable homelessness — largely the result of longstanding, left-leaning policies that prevent enforcing basic laws concerning things like public health and loitering. The California state assembly, however, believes that the state’s ever-increasing street communities are the result of a lack of affordable housing, so they want to do what they can to help those who choose…

UPDATE: Africans sent from TX to ME — living in Portland basketball arena

When officials in Portland, Maine convened a meeting of the Health & Human Services and Public Safety Committee Tuesday to discuss emergency measures to house a flood of illegal immigrants at The Expo – the local basketball arena – 72 mostly African asylum seekers had arrived in the previous three days. By the end of the 3 ½-hour meeting, the total had jumped to 86, the Press Herald reports. “It’s not sustainable to have the only program in the whole darn country paid for by 67,000 people,” Portland City Counselor Jill Duson complained, referring the Portland Community Support Fund –…

WATCH: Body Cam Footage Shows US Police Officer Punching Man in Face

The Columbus Police Department has released body camera footage of an officer pushing and then punching a man during a police investigation, once again raising questions about police brutality. In the video, police officers were responding to reports of gunshots at a home in Columbus, Ohio, after ShotSpotter, an automatic gunshot detection system, was triggered. According to reports, the detection system responded after firecrackers were set off nearby. Footage of the incident captured by Deborah Johnson shows her daughter-in-law attempting to enter a home being searched by officers with her two kids, when a police officer gets in her way.…

U.S. death rates from suicides, alcohol and drug overdoses reach all-time high…West Virginia and Ohio far outpace other states in drug overdose death rates

Rates of deaths from suicides, drug overdoses and alcohol have reached an all-time high in the United States, but some states have been hit far harder than others, according to a report released Wednesday by the Commonwealth Fund. The report examined data in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., taking an in-depth look at 47 factors that have an impact on health outcomes, including insurance coverage, access to doctors, obesity, smoking, even tooth loss, and ultimately assigning each state a score. The data are from 2017. Although the rates of the so-called deaths of despair are up nationally, the report’s…

It’s more dangerous to live in America than to travel abroad

As summer travel season begins, friends and relatives have asked me if it’s safe to travel outside the US. I understand their fears. The news is filled with scary stories, like a tourist bus being bombed near Egypt’s pyramids, people being knifed at a bus stop in Japan, and continuing coverage of the two Boeing 737 Max air crashes, both of which happened overseas. As a macroeconomist I travel frequently to understand global trends. I crunched the numbers on US fatalities abroad, and what I found might surprise you. Americans abroad In 2018, over 56 million US citizens got on…

SHOCK VIDEO: Glass Skydeck At Chicago Tower Cracks Under Visitors’ Feet…

There was another sky-high scare at the Willis Tower, when the Skydeck cracked under visitors’ feet. A video was shot on the 103rd floor Monday night, after the ledge’s protective top layer splintered into thousands of pieces. The protective layer covers the glass bottom below. The Willis Tower said no one was ever in danger, because the protective layer did what it was supposed to. CONTINUE @ WHORE MEDIA

The U.S. Army Once Kept $1 Billion Worth Of LSD In A Maryland Office For Some Reason

James Ketchum, an Army psychiatrist who conducted controversial drug experiments on members of the U.S. military, died last month, on May 27, at the age of 87. And while Ketchum’s legacy is filled with plenty of weird and horrifying tales, there’s one story that should get more attention in the wake of his death. Specifically, we should probably talk about the time that Ketchum found roughly $1 billion worth of LSD, enough to “intoxicate several hundred million people,” according to Ketchum, just sitting in his office—and the fact that it disappeared without explanation. Ketchum worked at the U.S. Army’s secluded Edgewood…

Two speeding cops crash into one another at intersection, killing 84-year-old woman in nearby car

The AP obtained footage from a security camera showing two speeding Chicago police vehicles, lightbars on, crashing into one another and then into a third car idling nearby. The driver of that vehicle, an 84-year-old retired teacher, was killed in the collision. The footage was released by her family, which is suing over her wrongful death. The suit claims the officers driving the SUV and the marked van were traveling at “unconscionably high speeds through the densely populated Austin neighborhood.” It contends the risk from speeding outweighed the dangers of the suspect whom the officers were pursuing. Police said the…

US officially requests extradition of Julian Assange…

The US Justice Department has filed an official request to UK authorities to extradite WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange, American media reports. The journalist could face more than 170 years behind bars. Assange was initially charged in the US with a single count of computer intrusion over his work with whistleblower Chelsea Manning. However, the US introduced 17 more indictments under the WWI-era Espionage Act over “unlawfully obtaining and disclosing classified documents related to the national defense.” All of the charges combined carry a maximum sentence of up to 175 years in prison. Assange was arrested by the UK authorities mid-April,…

“I Will RUIN YOU!”: Bitcoin Bull John McAfee Warns The U.S. Government

A Bitcoin millionaire who is currently on the run from the United States government for refusing to be stolen from has warned the government to leave him alone. Infamous Bitcoin bull, McAffe taunted the U.S. government on Twitter warning them to leave him alone or he will “f***ing bury” them. As mainstream media paints him as a “fugitive” for the “crime” of wanting to keep the money he earned, the Bitcoin bull isn’t giving up on his rights to the fruits of his labor or his bold fight for liberty. After all, taxation set up the American Revolution. In his…

Sex Work Would Be Broadly Legal in New York Under New Bill Introduced Monday…The bill removes penalties for buying and selling sex in many cases

Sex work would be broadly legalized in New York state under a first-of-its-kind bill introduced by state legislators on Monday. A group of lawmakers first called for legislation in February, but on Monday they finally came forward with a 13-page bill that would bring dramatic changes to the sex trade in the state.  The bill, written with advocacy group DecrimNY, would make it legal to both buy and sell sex under certain circumstances and modifies laws around facilities that are used as places of prostitution. “For us, this is a bodily autonomy issue — our bodies, our choice — but…

180 US companies declare new laws banning abortion are ‘bad for business’

Twitter/Square CEO Jack Dorsey joined more than 180 other U.S. CEOs in a campaign organized in part by abortion-giant Planned Parenthood to declare that newly enacted abortion restrictions in various states go “against the values of their companies” and are “bad for business.” Appearing today as a full-page ad in The New York Times under the heading “Don’t Ban Equality,” Dorsey and CEOs from corporations such as Yelp, Slack, Tinder, Ben & Jerry’s, H&M, Glossier, and The Body Shop signed a letter stating that laws restricting abortion inhibit “our ability to build diverse and inclusive workforce pipelines, recruit top talent…

What Would It Take to Spark a Rural/Small-Town Revival?

The decline of rural regions and small towns is a global phenomenon, and the causes are many but boil down to two primary dynamics: 1. Cities and megalopolises (aggregations of cities, suburbs and exurbs) attract capital, infrastructure, markets and talent, and these are the engines of job creation. People move to cities to find jobs. The San Francisco Bay Area megalopolis of roughly 8 million people in 9 counties and 101 cities offers an example of this dynamic. The region added over 400,000 new jobs since the 2008-09 Global Financial Crisis and over 1 million additional residents since the early…

Time for the LGBT Movement to Leave the Kids Alone

This summer, PBS Kids premiered an episode of the children’s show Arthur in which a teacher, Mr. Ratburn, “marries” another male character.  Even before this premiere, PBS was already infusing the LGBT agenda into its programming.  In between its shows, a happy song about families included an image of two dads with a baby and lyrics to that effect. Disney and other children’s stations long ago jumped onto the LGBT bandwagon with their line-up.  As a Guardian headline noted in 2016, “From Nickelodeon to Disney: Children’s TV leads the way for LGBT characters,” with same-sex unions featuring prominently in shows.  It is not just television, of…

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…

One dead after helicopter crash lands on roof of midtown Manhattan building

A helicopter crash landed onto the roof of a building in midtown Manhattan and caught fire on Monday afternoon,   authorities said. One person died in the crash of the Agusta A109E helicopter, according to officials. Only the pilot was aboard the aircraft when it crashed at around 1:45 p.m. on top of 787 Seventh Avenue, a 51-story building located between West 51st and West 52nd streets, at the north end of Times Square. The building’s roof does not have a helipad. Workers at the building quickly evacuated after the crash, which occurred on a rainy, foggy day. The fire on…

Philadelphia’s first openly gay deputy sheriff found dead at his desk in apparent suicide

Philadelphia’s first openly gay Deputy Sheriff committed suicide at his desk from an apparent gunshot wound on Friday, just before the city’s weekend of pride celebrations were set to begin. Dante Austin, 27, was found dead at his desk at the Philadelphia Sheriff’s office. An official cause of death is awaiting confirmation from the local Medical Examiner’s office. Austin was an Army veteran who also served as the department’s first LGBTQ community liaison and was known as a “fierce advocate.” He was set to be promoted to the position of sergeant next month, according to CBS Philly.

Update: Elderly NY man kills repeat burglars, is charged for using inherited gun, loses his home

Imagine being arrested and losing your home after two repeat burglars break into your house again and rush toward you with the possible intention of murdering you. This exact scenario played out in New York late last month thanks to the far-left state’s draconian gun control laws. A 64-year-old Deerfield homeowner was charged with illegal firearm possession and arrested after he used a gun he’d inherited from his deceased father to kill two repeat burglars. Then upon his release from a jail a couple of days later, he found himself homeless because his house had been condemned. Around 3:00 pm…

VIDEO: ‘Armed’ escort leads illegals AROUND end of border wall

The patchy wall on the southern border is proving effective, as illegal immigrants know the end locations of the barriers and simply walk around them. “We Build The Wall” founder Brian Kolfage posted videos showing what he says is an “armed cartel member from Juarez” leading a large group of aliens around the end of a wall portion and into the U.S. He also posted some stills of the individual, and a firearm appears to be visible in his waistband: Kolfage posted additional video of the same man leading several others around a section of wall that ends, due to…

Elderly Man Who Shot Two Burglars In His Home Charged With Felony Over Inherited Gun

An elderly man in New York was arrested for shooting two burglars in his house, not for murdering the intruders, but for shooting them with an unregistered gun. “He was in the kitchen when he heard people in the garage coming up the stairs to the kitchen. When they got to the top of the stairs he told them to stop, but one started coming toward him. He fired three or four shots and struck both.” That’s how the scenario played out as 64 year old Ronald Stolarczyk did what he had to do when two burglars had broken into…

Weather Service says a massive 80 mile by 80 mile blip on their radar was a ladybug swarm…..

The radar footage showed a green mass, spanning more than 60 miles, and moving.  In a Twitter post, the San Diego office of the National Weather Service referred to it as a “cloud” or “bloom” of ladybugs. And while the Weather Service’s tweet has prompted several news reports about the swarm of ladybugs, one local scientist is skeptical. James Cornett, senior scientist with James W. Cornett Ecological Consultants, said a swarm of that size and density would have darkened the skies over the region.  “There would have been unbelievable numbers of telephone calls to the police,” Cornett said. “It merits some investigation.” According to…

Comcast to pay $9.1 million for adding service plans without consent

Comcast is facing the consequences of attaching plans to customers’ accounts without their permission. A Washington state judge has ordered the telecom to pay about $9.1 million in penalties, plus restitution, for adding its Service Protection Plan (which only offset the basic cost of a tech visiting your home) to bills over 445,000 times between 2011 and 2016. The company was fully aware of the practice and did nothing to change its ways until after it filed its initial lawsuit, according to the state Attorney General’s office. Just over 240,000 of the stated violations were committed by signing up customers…

SAN FRANCISCO ROLLS OUT NEW RAINBOW BRIGHT GAY POLICE CARS AND UNIFORMS

San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) is celebrating Pride month with a new rainbow patrol vehicle and special ‘Pride Patches’ for uniforms. The SFPD is the first law enforcement agency in the US to introduce the patches, which are rainbow-patterned versions of the department’s signature blue and gold patch. Officers are encouraged (but not required) to wear them on their shoulders for the month of June. The patches are available to buy for $20, and all funds will be donated to Larkin Street Youth Services, a local charity that supports LGBT+ people. The rainbow patrol vehicle will be used for recruitment…

Feds Move to Open 1.4 Million Acres of Public Land to Hunting, Fishing

U.S. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt this week announced a proposal to expand hunting and fishing at nearly 90 wildlife refuges and hatcheries nationwide. The proposed rule would include big changes such opening Green Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin to hunting and fishing for the first time and opening of Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge in Wyoming to deer and elk hunting for the first time. Other facilities would see smaller expansions with the net result of some 1.4 million new acres of public land opened for access to sportsmen. “Hunting and fishing are more than just traditional pastimes…

Ad Execs Want to Put Graphic Warnings on Ammunition

This story from The Trace popped up on my news feed. The Ad Execs Who Want to Put Graphic Warnings on Ammunition Oriel Davis-Lyons and Gustavo Dorietto hope their marketing campaign will prompt states to adopt the kind of graphic labels that adorn cigarette packs in more than 100 countries.

Hundreds of Africans bussed to San Antonio ‘with no heads-up’ — lounge on downtown sidewalks

Hundreds of migrants Congo and Angola were transported to San Antonio on Tuesday, and city officials say they received no warning from the feds that they were coming. KENS published a story showing dozens of people milling around downtown, saying they arrived at the southern U.S. border by way of Ecuador. All told, 350 Africans arrived this week. City officials say CBP told them another 200-300 will be arriving later. One migrant told reporter Jaleesa Irizarry via Google translate that he came to America “for security reasons” and once he made it, “with the help of the USA, I can…

Trump admin tells U.S. embassies they can’t fly pride flag on flagpoles

The Trump administration is rejecting requests from U.S. embassies to fly the rainbow pride flag on embassy flagpoles during June, LGBTQ Pride Month, three American diplomats told NBC News. The U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil and Latvia are among those that have requested permission from Trump’s State Department to fly the pride flag on their flagpoles and have been denied, diplomats said. Although the pride flag can and is being flown elsewhere on embassy grounds, including inside embassies and on exterior walls, the decision not to allow it on the official flagpole stands in contrast to President Donald Trump’s…

‘We have been throwing up for 8 hours’: Texas couple who died in Fiji texted relatives

In text messages to their relatives, a Texas couple on a dream trip to Fiji complained of being violently ill but offered no indication they were worried the mystery ailment that afflicted them would take their lives. Michelle and David Paul died two days apart after arriving in Fiji on May 22 and becoming gravely ill soon after. The Fiji Health Ministry has been working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization to determine the malady that took the lives of two seemingly healthy people. Text messages obtained by ABC News from relatives…

Mexico Claims Some Migrant Caravan Funding Came from U.S., England

Mexican tax officials froze the assets of 26 individuals and entities they allege are tied to human smuggling organizations or to promoting Central American migrant caravans. The caravans moved thousands of individuals from the “northern triangle” through Mexico to the U.S. border. The funding for the migrant caravans allegedly came from the U.S., England, Africa, and Central America. Through a prepared statement, Mexico’s Finance and Tax Secretariat (SHCP) announced the freezing of the accounts claiming the move resulted from an investigation by their Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF).

This unfinished Arizona ‘futuristic hippie commune’ has a problem

In the middle of Arizona’s desert lies something unexpected: a rather strange, unfinished “city of the future.” Jutting out of the vast, barren Sonoran Desert and reachable only by car, Arcosanti’s domes and curved structures look like something imagined up by a science fiction writer. There’s one big problem, however: The project is reportedly only 5 percent complete. A nonprofit group called the Cosanti Foundation has been working for decades to create a city that would inspire the future of urban design by incorporating a range of environmentally-friendly features to reduce sprawl and minimize the need for cars while harnessing…

CDC Director Robert Redfield, now telling Congress “Prepare for Ebola to Spread Internationally”

Today leaders from the World Health Organization (WHO) said the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) remains contained to a small geographic area, but that does not mean the virus is retreating. “At any point it could flare up within a zone,” said Mike Ryan, MD, a WHO assistant director-general. Ryan, citing information contained in yesterday’s WHO Ebola situation report, said there are some encouraging signs, including lower transmission rates in known hot spots and more surveillance. “Surveillance has intensified to 1,300 alerts per day, of which between 200 and 300 are validated and tested,” Ryan…

Walmart to deliver groceries to your refrigerator when you’re not home…

The online delivery wars are heating up inside shoppers’ homes. Walmart is now offering to have one of its employees deliver fresh groceries and put them in your refrigerator when you’re not home. The nation’s largest grocer said Friday that it will be offering the service this fall for more than one million customers in three cities: Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Missouri, and Vero Beach, Florida. Later this year, the service, called InHome Delivery, will also accept returns for items purchased on Walmart.com. Two years ago, Walmart tested a similar service in the Silicon Valley area but teamed up with delivery…

TSA is letting illegal aliens fly on U.S. airlines WITHOUT proper documents, even as Americans are searched and humiliated at gates

After the horrific Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the U.S. homeland, Congress quickly expanded the federal law enforcement bureaucracy by creating the gigantic Department of Homeland Security and with it, a brand-new agency called the Transportation Security Administration. Among other duties, the TSA is charged with screening passengers at U.S. airports via security checkpoints where agents force passengers to practically undress, be exposed to radiation-emitting x-ray machines, and be subjected to humiliating pat-downs in which scores of passengers have complained are too sexually exploitative. But while American passengers are subjected to such outrages, the TSA’s parent agency, DHS, has been…

Mexico Freezes Human Traffickers’ Bank Accounts, Sends National Guard To Border Amid ‘Very Good Discussion’

Update: After both the United States and Mexico claimed to have had a ‘very good discussion’ to avert President Trump’s tariff threat – and the US weighing a delay over concerns that both sides wouldn’t be able to reach an agreement on all the measures Mexico would need to take to avert them, Mexico showed yet another act of good faith on Thursday – freezing the bank accounts of 26 alleged human traffickers.  The ministry’s Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) said in a statement it froze the accounts due to “probable links with human trafficking and illegal aid to migrant caravans.” The FIU added that…

3 U.S. tourists found dead just days apart in same Dominican Republic resort

Dominican police are investigating the deaths of an American couple found dead in the same Dominican Republic resort where a Pennsylvania woman collapsed and died just days before, shortly after she checked in. The Regional Institute of Forensic Sciences says in an initial report that 63-year-old Edward Nathaniel Holmes and 49-year-old Cynthia Ann Day of Maryland appear to have suffered respiratory failure and fluid in the lungs. But it says further tests are required to determine more about the cause of death. Officials say the couple arrived at the Bahia Principe hotel in La Romana on May 25, and planned…

Amazon to drop nearly all small brands in sellout to Proctor & Gamble (and other big, toxic corporate brands)

Amazon is setting the stage for a major platform shift — and for thousands of small vendors, it could be a devastating change. In a bid to refocus their wholesaling efforts on big brands and encourage more third-party sellers, Amazon will cease ordering from small wholesale vendors. Putting an emphasis on goods from companies like Proctor & Gamble and Sony will be advantageous for Amazon, but for the little guys, this change will come at a steep cost. Instead of relying on bulk orders from Amazon, the online retailer wants small vendors to start selling products on the website by…

U.S. Farms Are Facing Their Worst Crisis In A Generation – And Now Here Comes Another Monster Storm

The combination of the wettest planting season in U.S. history, a catastrophic trade war with China and economic conditions that are brutal for small farms has produced a “perfect storm” for U.S. farmers.  Farm bankruptcies have already risen to the highest level in 7 years, but many expect that they will soon surge to all-time record highs.  Due to the incredibly wet weather, millions upon millions of acres of prime U.S. farmland will not be planted with crops at all this year.  And millions of acres that do get planted will yield a lot less than usual because of the…

WEEK 5: The city of Baltimore can’t issue building permits, business licenses, residence can’t buy or sell homes…

The people of Baltimore are beginning their fifth week under an electronic siege that has prevented residents from obtaining building permits and business licenses – and even buying or selling homes. A year after hackers disrupted the city’s emergency services dispatch system, city workers throughout the city are unable to, among other things, use their government email accounts or conduct routine city business. In this attack, a type of malicious software called ransomware has encrypted key files, rendering them unusable until the city pays the unknown attackers 13 bitcoin, or about US$76,280. But even if the city were to pay…

Above The Law: TSA allowing illegal migrants to fly without proper documents

The federal agency tasked with overseeing security at transportation hubs has been violating its own policy by allowing migrants who have been released from federal custody onto flights despite not having required documents, according to several Department of Homeland Security officials. For the past six months, the Transportation Security Administration has allowed migrants released from the custody of other Homeland Security agencies to board flights to other parts of the country despite the passengers lacking any of the 15 documents it states are the only acceptable forms of identification. Since early December, the agency has avoided temporarily changing federal policy…

More Gun Control: Trump Says He’s “Seriously” Considering Banning Silencers

President Donald Trump has already successfully gotten more gun control done than his predecessor, Barack Obama.  But he doesn’t seem to want to stop at banning bump stocks.  He’s now “seriously” considering banning silencers. The media is taking aim at Trump over the shootings and he responded in a manner that would make any Democrat smile. “Well, I’d like to think about it,” Trump said in an interview with Piers Morgan on ITV’s Good Morning Britain. “I’m going to seriously look at it.” While Trump said he didn’t “love” the idea of a ban, he also was unhappy to see…

Kay Jewelers Store Refuses Service to Uniformed Deputy Because He Was Armed

A horrific video clip surfaced Wednesday appearing to show abortion doctors staging a fight using dead unborn babies. Catholic priest Fr. Frank Pavone revealed the sickening footage on Twitter, claiming it is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to undercover investigations looking into depraved behavior from abortion industry doctors. “This my friends is what EVIL looks like!” Fr.

Government to start posting list of troubled nursing homes

In a turnabout, the government said Wednesday it will start posting a list of some 400 troubled nursing homes , days after senators released the “secret” document along with a report questioning oversight of poor-quality facilities. Dr. Kate Goodrich, chief medical officer with the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services, said the agency soon will post the list and update it regularly. She didn’t set a date. “We are working actively to get the list posted,” Goodrich told reporters, saying that attention focused on the issue “has amplified a very important national dialogue on nursing home quality.” The Associated Press…

Bolshevik Big Business? Corporations Now Attacking Conservative Customers

Nabisco mocks customers upset about a drag-queen Mother’s Day cookie ad. Burger King subtly encourages people to throw its milk shakes at anti-European Union populists. And a beer company advocates hitting such people “over the head with a brick.” Welcome to the new corporate activism and the principle “The conservative customer is always wrong.” There was a time, not long ago, when businesses largely adhered to the old advice “Never discuss politics or religion.” And when explaining his lack of 1990s political activism, NBA legend Michael Jordan reportedly said, “Republicans buy shoes, too.” But that was before the advent of…

As Democrat-Run Big Cities Descend Into Cesspools Of Filth & Disease And Exploding Violence, Deadly Outbreaks Of Medieval Diseases There Could Spread Across America

According to this new story over at Fellowship of the Minds which was reporting on a recent interview done by Dr. Drew Pinsky, many of America’s big cities are approaching unlivable conditions, with Dr. Pinsky going so far as to compare the conditions in cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles to those in Calcutta. Warning of the potential of life threatening illnesses in the cities turning into very real ‘plague‘ conditions, with Medieval diseases already returning to them, we’ve long been warned to pay very close attention to what is happening in big US cities to get an indication…

Alabama lawmakers pass bill requiring chemical castration of convicted child molesters

Lawmakers in Alabama have passed a bill that would require the chemical castration of people convicted of a sex crime against a child under the age of 13, according to WIAT.  If Gov.

Left-wing tech companies using economic terrorism and discrimination against firearms industry because they hate the Second Amendment

We saw it coming years ago when the Obama regime deployed the Justice Department and various federal agencies to target ‘politically incorrect’ industries using “Operation Choke Point,” and we’ve seen it continued by virtue-signaling corporations like Dick’s Sporting Goods: The Left has launched a full-out assault on the right to sell and market firearms, since they can’t get rid of the Second Amendment. The Obama regime is no more, but the Marxist assault against guns and gun rights has continued as Left-wing tech firms increasingly employ economic terrorism and discrimination by threatening and punishing companies that continue to do firearms-related…

Virginia Beach Shooting Gives Gun-Grabbers Another Opportunity

The shooting at a state government office building in Virginia late Friday afternoon by an employee seeking revenge over being fired from his job is already giving anti-gunners another opportunity to promote their anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment agenda. DeWayne Craddock, a 40-year-old former engineer with the city’s public utilities department, planned his attack carefully in advance. Police reported that over recent weeks he legally purchased a number of firearms including the .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun and semi-automatic rifle that he used in his attack. He chose the perfect time to commit his crime: late Friday afternoon as the 400-plus employees were leaving…

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Pushes for $2 Billion in New Taxes and Fees

As California enjoys a historic budget surplus of more than $21.5 billion, Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is pushing for more than $2 billion in new taxes and fees. His plan calls for instituting a water tax, phone tax, and health care penalty known as the “individual mandate.” “Without the mandate, everybody’s premiums go up,” Newsom said when pitching his plan. Citizens would begin to be penalized in 2020 for not having health insurance in order to provide further subsidies for Covered California, the state insurance exchange. Within three years, the revenue is expected to top over $1 billion. “We’re talking…
