    Roger Waters of the band Pink Floyd has publicly slammed President Donald Trump as a “tyrant and mass murderer,” adding that the president’s supporters have turned the United States into a “fool’s hell.” Waters also said that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the only Democratic presidential candidate who could beat President Trump. The British rocker spoke earlier this week in New York at a Q&A session following a screening of his concert film, Us + Them, according a report from Rolling Stone. He launched into an unhinged rant about President Trump when asked why more Americans aren’t upset about the...

    The coronavirus outbreak has exposed the United States’ dangerous dependence on China for pharmaceutical and medical supplies, including an estimated 97 percent of all antibiotics and 80 percent of the active pharmaceutical ingredients needed to produce drugs in the United States. The economic repercussions of the coronavirus reveal the dangers of allowing one country to have a near monopoly on global manufacturing, David Dayen explains in an article at the American Prospect: China is a source of not only finished goods, but also of input parts and raw materials. A substantial number of the materials needed for defense and electronic...

    Antarctica is facing extreme ice loss. Sea levels and temperatures are rising around the world. Yet Donald Trump continues to deny the evidence in front of his own eyes. We need to take action to solve the climate crisis—and that starts with getting Trump out of the White House. https://t.co/axSFYwT8cB— Joe Biden (Text Join to 30330) (@JoeBiden) February 13, 2020
  • Billie Eilish: No Time to Die review – a Bond theme befitting of the Craig era

    The more anachronistic the character of Bond became, the more the producers attempted to appeal to a younger audience through music. In recent years, they’ve tried everything from grunge (the late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell) to Madonna to an awkward duet between Jack White and Alicia Keys. But even so, commissioning Billie Eilish seems striking: it tells you as much about the 18-year-old’s ascent to the kind of artist your grandparents have heard of as it does the Bond franchise’s desire to appear hip. Like her cover of Yesterday at the Oscars ceremony, No Time to Die sees Eilish taking...

    U.S. Attorney John Durham, tasked to look into the origins of the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation, is now “investigating CIA resistance to sharing Russian secrets,” according to a Feb. 13 report in The New York Times. According to the article, “Durham appears to be pursuing a theory that the C.I.A., under its former Director John O. Brennan, had a preconceived notion about Russia or was trying to get to a particular result—and was nefariously trying to keep other agencies from seeing the full picture lest they interfere with that goal.” Additionally, Durham is reportedly looking into “whether and how information...
  • Alabama Dem Introduces Legislation Mandating Vasectomies for Men at Age 50 or After Third Child

    An Alabama Democrat state lawmaker from Birmingham has introduced legislation that, if passed would mandate, “every Alabama man to undergo a vasectomy within one month of his 50th birthday or the birth of his third biological child, whichever comes first,” according to a report from Alabama-based Yellowhammer News. The bill, filed by State Rep. Rolanda Hollis (D) on Thursday, is viewed by some a response to the 2019 passage by the state legislature of the Human Life Protection Act, a law that is currently making its way through the federal courts that ban abortion with very few exceptions.

    After years of work, the Interstate 35 reconstruction project in Bell County is pretty much done, while a similar project to widen Interstate 14 still has years of work ahead. “Overall, the I-35 Reconstruction Project ... particularly in Waco, is continuing at an aggressive pace, well on track for a 2023 completion. Bell County work remains substantially complete with minor ‘punch list’ items such as completion of the Temple Welcome Monument and the standard establishment of vegetation along the corridor within the Temple/Troy area remaining, prior to final acceptance of the project,” Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Ken Roberts said...

    A handful of protesters chided Joe Biden as he walked out of a Manhattan fundraiser on Thursday, urging the one-time Democratic frontrunner to drop out of the 2020 presidential race. About half a dozen protesters from New York Communities for Change yelled at Biden as he was leaving the Wayfarer restaurant on West 57th Street near Sixth Avenue soon after 8 p.m. “Drop out Joe! Drop out Joe!” they chanted as he walked to a waiting car. “Skip Nevada! Skip South Carolina! Go home early!” one of the demonstrators yelled. “We’re here to mark the death of Joe Biden’s campaign....

    De Mattei: Querida Amazonia: the consequences of the ‘turning point’ that never was A temporary halt on “viri probati”;  the flop of the Amazon Synod; open conflict with the Amazonian-Germanic bishops. These three points are contained in the dynamic initiated by Pope Francis’ Post-Synod Exhortation Querida Amazonua, presented on February 12th 2020.* There has been a great deal of suspenseful buildup around this Papal Exhortation, which put the final seal on the Amazon Synod, held in Rome from October 6th to 27th , 2019.** Both the Instrumentum Laboris (June 17th 2019) *** and the final document of October 26th proposed...

    EXCLUSIVE: A New Hampshire man was arrested Thursday afternoon after allegedly assaulting a 15-year-old Trump supporter and two adults at a polling site during the state’s first-in-the-nation primary earlier this week. The teen's mother said in an exclusive interview with Fox News after the arrest that her son is "traumatized." The Windham Police Department said Patrick Bradley, 34, of Windham, was charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct. Fox News has learned that the suspect got in the face of the teenage boy who was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat and volunteering at the Trump tent at...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is setting the stage for the upper chamber of Congress to vote on two abortion bills: One bans late-term abortion, and the other punishes doctors who do not administer proper care to children who survive an abortion. The first bill, proposed by South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, prohibits all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy except in cases of rape, incest, and the endangerment of the life of the mother. The second is proposed by Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, which mandates doctors "exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who...

    A Hong Kong singer has struck a humorous chord during the coronavirus outbreak with a parody of Natalie Imbruglia’s number “Torn,” in which she sings about using hand sanitizer and hibernating. Kathy Mak opens her version with the lines: “Back during SARS, I was just a child/Didn’t seem to know, didn’t seem to care about the virus running wild/ But now I’m freaking out all right/I sterilize, I sanitize/My hands are always frickin’ dry.” The chorus of the original song by the Australian-British singer contained the lyrics: “I’m all out of faith/This is how I feel, I’m cold and I...

    Senator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) released a slew of endorsements for state attorneys on Thursday, including one for Kim Foxx, the Cook County state’s attorney who was investigated for her decision to drop charges against former Empire actor Jussie Smollett. “I am honored today to have the endorsement of Senator Sanders,” Foxx told Politico. “When I first ran four years ago on a platform that included a holistic approach to criminal justice reform, it was different than what previous prosecutors had ever attempted. Since in office, we’ve implemented bond and cannabis reform, we’re leading the country in vacating wrongful convictions...

    The word “crypto-communist” has a paranoid, McCarthyite connotation. But during the Cold War, numerous communist intellectuals and politicians deliberately concealed their commitment to Marxism-Leninism. Why? To be more successful intellectuals and politicians. A few crypto-communists even managed to become national leaders. Fidel Castro gained power in 1959, but only announced his communism in 1961. Nelson Mandela presented himself as a reasonable democratic reformer. Yet after his death, the African National Congress openly admittedly that Mandela had been on the politburo of the South African Communist Party for decades. Ho Chi Minh joined the Communist Party in 1920, but in 1945...

    Federal prosecutors recommended on Thursday that former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh be sentenced to nearly five years in prison. Last fall, Pugh was indicted on federal charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, seven counts of wire fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States, and two counts of tax evasion. She indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with the “Healthy Holly” book controversy that began in May, at which time she resigned from office. The statement of facts in the case stated how Pugh defrauded local businesses and nonprofit organizations out of nearly $800,000 through sales of the...
