    I was participating in a thread talking about Hunter Biden's videos. I told them to duckduckgo "gnews" but don't expect to see any child porn.

    Seeking to stop the political bleeding, Joseph R. Biden struck out on the campaign trail Saturday in Pennsylvania, pushing back against President Trump’s charge that he wants to bring the hammer down on the oil and gas industry in the state by banning fracking. “Look let me be clear,” Mr. Biden said at a rally in Bucks County “I am not banning fracking in Pennsylvania or anywhere else.” Mr. Biden’s stance on the oil and gas industry is getting extra attention in the wake of the final presidential debate. Mr. Trump said Mr. Biden had delivered a mixed message on...

    A War Story for the Ages - During World War 2, the 7th BG's 9th Bomb Squadron was dispatched to destroy a railroad bridge at Pyinmana, about halfway between Rangoon and Mandalay and near two active enemy fighter bases. The formation was led by Col. Conrad F. Necrason, 7th BG commander. The B-24 on his right wing was piloted by 1st Lt. Lloyd Jensen whose copilot was 2d Lt. Owen J. Baggett. On that mission, Baggett was to earn a distinction believed to be unique in Air Force history. Before reaching Pyinmana, Burma, to destroy a bridge, the American B-24...

    Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.), perhaps unsatisfied with the misery of rolling blackouts to which ill-considered climate restrictions have subjected Californians, has ordered that no new gas-powered cars shall be sold in California beginning in the year 2035. What could possibly go wrong? California “is phasing out the internal combustion engine,” the governor tweeted in announcing his sweeping executive order. “By 2035 every new car sold in CA will be an emission free vehicle. Cars shouldn’t give our kids asthma. Make wildfires worse. Melt glaciers. Or raise sea levels.” NEW: We’re facing a climate crisis.We need bold action.CA is phasing out...

    The order directs the California Air Resources Board to develop a phase-out plan that would require 100 percent zero-emissions personal use and dryage vehicles by 2035 and as many medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicle applications deemed feasible by 2045. “Pull away from the gas pumps,” Newsom said. “Let us no longer be victims of geopolitical dictators that manipulate global supply chains and global markets.”

    Former Vice President Joe Biden now says he supports travel bans to contain the Chinese coronavirus after all – after he previously called the China travel ban issued by President Donald Trump in late January “xenophobia.”.... Biden not only didn’t support the ban, he explicitly opposed it, repeatedly saying it was unscientific, even though it turns out it ultimately was backed up by the science....

    Less than a day after issuing new health guidelines that banned trick-or-treating and other Halloween activities, Los Angeles County public health officials walked back the decision Wednesday. Citing an inability to maintain safe social distancing and the potential for gatherings beyond household members, county officials initially nixed trick-or-treating along with other Halloween traditions, including haunted houses and parades. But Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said Wednesday that the guidelines have been “slightly revised.” Ferrer said the change distinguishes between activities originally prohibited under the health officer order from activities that are “not recommended.”

    Political tyrants Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo must not be allowed to destroy the livelihoods of thousands of people in New York City. It is a disgrace that it has come to this, in what was once the worlds greatest city. ...

    India has now banned over 200 mostly Chinese mobile apps, citing their collection of user data as a national security risk. India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology issued the latest ban on Sept. 2, naming a total of 118 mobile apps, according to a government press release. It is the third list of banned apps issued since June. The 118 apps “engaged in activities which [are] prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defense of India, security of state, and public order,” the ministry said. Among the banned apps are two apps by Chinese search giant Baidu; online payment...

    TikTok says it is filing suit against the Trump administration Monday in response to what it says is a "highly politicized" executive order that seeks to ban the short-form video app from the United States. The suit will mark a major escalation in the fight between President Donald Trump and the wildly popular TikTok, which has been downloaded more than 165 million times in the US and is owned by a Chinese parent company, ByteDance. TikTok said it is arguing in California federal court that the administration did not give the company a fair chance to defend itself from allegations...

    Most developed countries, especially in Europe, ban mail-in voting to fight vast fraud and vote buying that had threatened the integrity of their elections, according to an exhaustive review of voting rules and histories in over 30 major nations. In the European Union, 63% have put a ban on mailing in ballots except for citizens living overseas. Another 22% have imposed a ban even for those overseas. And most of those that allow mail-in ballots require some form of photo ID to get one, according to the report from the Crime Prevention Research Center shared with Secrets. “These countries have...

    Twitter said on Tuesday it has removed more than 7,000 accounts associated with the QAnon conspiracy theory, a loose group of online provocateurs who support President Trump and spread absurd claims about forces supposedly attempting to topple the president. Content associated with QAnon will be banned from the platform's trends section and tweets sharing links involving QAnon theories will be blocked, Twitter officials said. Twitter officials told NPR that the crackdown against QAnon is expected to affect more than 150,000 accounts, making it the most wide-reaching and aggressive response to the pro-Trump conspiracy theory that any social media platform has...

    A bill which would outlaw gay conversion therapy passed its preliminary hearing in the Knesset Wednesday afternoon. The bill, which was drafted by MK Nissan Horowitz (Meretz), would ban the controversial practice of treating homosexuals with the aim of reversing same-sex attraction. In its preliminary vote, the 120-member Knesset backed the bill by a margin of 42 to 36, after the coalition split, with Blue and White backing the proposed law, while haredi lawmakers and the Likud opposed it - with the exception of Likud minister Amir Ohana. After the vote, haredi lawmakers fumed at Blue and White chief and...

    TikTok, the popular video app, has taken a series of steps to convince U.S. officials the company is dedicated to protecting Americans’ data, including hiring Kevin Mayer, previously the head of streaming at Disney, as its CEO. It has also pushed for and held meetings with U.S. lawmakers, pulled out of Hong Kong due to a new severe Chinese national security law and published a “privacy roadmap.” That may not be enough to meet U.S. demands, however. In recent weeks, U.S. government officials and members of Congress have placed the company in their crosshairs, warning that personal data collected by...

    Vermont’s food scraps ban that starts July 1 is the last step in a multi-year process of reducing waste in landfills. The Universal Recycling Law was unanimously passed by the state legislature in 2012 in response to the state’s stagnant recycling rates. According to a 2013 study, an estimated 50% of Vermonters' trash included recyclable or compostable materials, like food scraps and leaf and yard debris. First, you need to find something to store the food scraps in. Morris recommended a large container with a lid, which can be recycled from something already on hand or bought from a hardware...

  • The Dukes of Hazzard' May Get Yanked from Amazon Streaming (They gone too far now!)

    The Dukes of Hazzard has been flagged for internal review at Amazon. The hit 1980s sitcom could end up getting the boot for problematic imagery. The series aired on CBS for 7 seasons and was a success for most of that time, thanks to the adventures of Bo and Luke Duke, along with their cousin Daisy Duke. Concerns over the show's use of the Confederate flag on the iconic vehicle, nicknamed the General Lee, have come up more than once over the past few years, but it looks like now may be the time the boys get cancelled. Amazon is...
