    The federal government has constructed more than 40 miles of wall along the southern border with Mexico since the outbreak of the coronavirus in the United States. More than half of the additional wall and fencing have been constructed since early February, the Washington Times reported. The first confirmed case of the COVID-19 virus was reported on Jan. 20. “Today is not the time to play politics with the lives of U.S. Citizens," Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told the newspaper. "Walls have proven to stop illegal entries into the United States, therefore they are an...

    A charity event planned in honor of an officer killed in a 2018 mass shooting at a country music bar in in Southern California has been postponed indefinitely -- reportedly because a police chief didn't want Republicans invited. The Blue Bowl, a charity flag football game, was intended to raise money for the family of fallen Ventura County Sgt. Ron Helus as well as other officers killed in the line of duty, FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported. Helus died last Nov. 7, when a 28-year-old suspect allegedly attacked the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, killing a total...

    People choose professions for many reasons, not the least of which is their ability, and some of which is the luck of being at the right place at the right time. [snip] With this as a background, University College of London psychologists Mark Davison and Adrian Furnham (2018) decided to dig into a question that you’ve probably had many times, especially if you follow celebrity news sites. Are all actors narcissists? [snip] Taking a look now at the results, perhaps not surprisingly, actors scored higher on the so-called “Cluster B” personality disorder traits of Narcissistic, Histrionic, and Borderline. However, their...
  • ‘Borderline Offensive’: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Left Nearly Speechless After Tough Interview

    If those interviews by DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, where she does nothing but spew talking points and condescending quips, annoy you, then you will likely jump for joy over what you’re about to hear. Doug McIntyre, a radio host at 790 KABC-RADIO in Los Angeles, interviewed the chairwoman on Monday about the DNC’s decision to name LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to head the party’s convention. As McIntyre notes, Villaraigosa has his critics in Southern California (“Los Angeles can’t even pave the sidewalks”), and McIntryre was floored that he was chosen. Considering that, he did the opposite of a fluff...

    Immigration: Mexican President Vicente Fox gave us plenty of grief over the border fence and now Felipe Calderon has started. They're playing to Mexican populist politics. They ought to show leadership instead. With Mexico's clean elections and peaceful transition of power, Fox and President-elect Calderon no doubt grasp the rule of law. Indeed, Fox has decisively enforced Mexico's own laws against unauthorized entry from the south by illegal immigrants from Central America. But things turn strange inside Mexico on the matter of the northern border when human traffic flows the other way. Suddenly, even Mexican pols who should know better,...

  • New youth craze: Self mutilation! Michelle Malkin on media stars inspiring kids to cut themselves

    Have you heard of "cutting"? If you're a parent, you'd better read up. "Cutting" refers to self-mutilation – using knives, razor blades or even safety pins to deliberately harm one's own body – and it's spreading to a school near you. Actresses Angelina Jolie and Christina Ricci did it. So did Courtney Love and the late Princess Diana. On the Internet, there are scores of websites (with titles such as "Blood Red," "Razor Blade Kisses" and "The Cutting World") featuring "famous self-injurers," photos of teenagers' self-inflicted wounds and descriptions of their techniques. The destructive practice has been depicted in films...

    SEATTLE - "I've been going through this since I was 11 years old," the young woman said, "I'm backed up against the wall. Either I need to do this therapy or I need to die." "Well, why not die?" the therapist asked. "Well, if it comes down to it, I will." "Uh-huh, but why not now?" This aggressive cross-examination is a signature technique of what has become one of the most popular new psychotherapies in a generation. For years, psychotherapists have had a wide array of techniques to draw from in helping troubled patients. The most commonly discussed recent therapies...
  • Teens Doing Self-Mutilation to Deal With Stress

    JACKSONVILLE, FL -- It's a disturbing new trend in teens. One in four young girls do something to their bodies called self-mutilation. In 19-year-old Esther Maassen's case, a razor blade, basically anything sharp is what she would use on her feet. "Anything sharp so I could see myself bleed," she says. Why she does it may surprise you. "A lot of people don't get it. They drink when they get upset or something. We cut." It's not a suicide attempt but an addiction. Those who do it say it helps to relieve stress. "It wasn't the children you would suspect,"...
