    A federal appeals court on Friday tossed a climate change lawsuit brought by a group of children who sought a court order to force the U.S. government to phase out fossil fuel emissions. A divided three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit said that while the lawsuit raised critical issues concerning the government’s promotion of fossil fuels, they were beyond the court’s power to resolve. “Reluctantly, we conclude that such relief is beyond our constitutional power,” Judge Andrew Hurwitz wrote for the majority. “Rather, the plaintiffs’ impressive case for redress must be presented to the...

    A Twitter user posted a sick promise just before Halloween trick-or-treating started, then followed it up with images of his plans in action. It was a “joke,” one that wasn’t funny, appropriate, or within the terms of service of Twitter. Yet 20 hours later, the Tweets still stand despite likely hundreds of reports of the threat against children. The Tweet was bad enough, including an image of a child dressed like President Trump with red “X”s over his eyes. The comments were even worse. I have no intentions of posting the Tweet here other than the screenshots above because it...

    Medical professionals in Georgia could face felony charges for helping minors undergo gender transition under legislation being drafted by a GOP lawmaker in the state, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Under the legislation being proposed by State Rep. Ginny Ehrhart (R), medical professionals in Georgia could be charged with a felony for performing a number of procedures designed to help minors with gender transition, such as mastectomies, vasectomies, “castration and other forms of genital mutilization.” Ehrhart said that the legislation, if passed, would also prohibit prescribing “puberty-blocking drugs to stop or delay normal puberty and cross-sex hormone therapy” to minors. “The...

    The suicide rate among children aged 10 through 14 has nearly tripled from 2007 to 2017, while the suicide rate among older teenagers has increased by 76 percent between 2007 and 2017, new federal data show. According to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics, the suicide rate among 10 through 24-year-olds has increased 56 percent over the last decade as violent deaths (suicide and homicide) continue to be leading causes of death for that age bracket. In 2017, suicide was the second leading cause of death for children aged 10...

    Tuesday on CBS’s “This Morning,” 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg continued her push to stop the “climate crisis,” calling on more people to “grasp the problem.” Thunberg said “the most important thing” for people to do is “fully understand the climate and ecological crisis” to know what to do help solve the problem. “What I want people to do now is to become aware of the crisis that is here,” Thunberg explained. “I tell the world leaders when I speak to them and I tell them how it is … I tell them the science, how it looks.” She later...

    A late-night run to the donut shop turned into a roadside rescue for three teens living near Niagara Falls. It ended with them pushing a stranded stranger's car for hours and inspiring others on Facebook. Aeron McQuillin, 18, Bailey Campbell, 17, and Billy Tarbett, 15, were on their way to a Tim Hortons donut shop in Fonthill, Ontario, when they spotted a woman on the side of the road with smoke coming out of her car. They quickly diagnosed the problem as a leak that allowed the engine coolant and oil to mix. They also determined the car was too...
  • Rocko's Modern life:Static Cling on Netflix will feature LGBTQ Themes

    Fans had their hopes dashed for a good reboot of Rocko’s Modern Life early on. It happened in an unexpected way, almost like being sideswiped by a flying cherub in a fleeting dream; it was an unreal revelation. It took place shortly after Netflix announced that a new movie based on the popular 1990s show was in the works, and fans recognized it once they landed on the Netflix page and saw the startling reveal with their own eyes. There’s an archive of the Netflix title, and right there in the genre tags it reveals that Rocko’s Modern Life: Static...

    UK School Worker Fired for Sharing Petition Against LGBT Sex Ed GLOUCESTERSHIRE, England ( - A Christian school worker has been fired for Facebook sharing a national petition against the country's new mandatory sexual educations program that normalizes homosexual relationships and transgender ideology to children as young as 4 years old. In 2018, Kristie Higgs learned that the "No Outsiders" program was being introduced at Farmor's School in Fairford where her children attended and she worked as an assistant for six years with an unblemished record. The program has sparked protests by parents across Britain for the aggressive indoctrination of LGBT and gender identity topics...

    About three months after I’d given birth, I was invited to a recently-befriended mum’s house for a gathering of new parents and babies. As my bleary brain tried desperately to remember each adult’s name, and at least the gender of their corresponding tot, I suddenly realised we were one cooing, spewing infant short of a full set. How odd. Later, as I happened on the lady I’d identified as childless refilling her mug in the kitchen, I inquired about the “little one”, wholly prepared to praise her willingness to leave him or her with someone else at such a young...

    After facing an onslaught of intense backlash and severe scrutiny, singer Barbra Streisand is "profoundly sorry" for saying that pop icon Michael Jackson's alleged serial molestation of children was simply the satisfaction of "sexual needs" that ultimately brought little to no harm to his victims.

    A Florida mom and pediatrician warned parents to better monitor their children’s internet activity after she found a disturbing clip that appeared to encourage children to harm themselves, inserted into gaming videos on YouTube and YouTube Kids. Dr. Free Hess, from Gainesville, Florida, found the 9-second-long suicide instructions sandwiched between clips of the Nintendo game Splatoon last week and shared it online to caution other parents. "Remember kids, sideways for attention, longways for results," a man said while demonstrating the cutting motion on his arm. "End it." The man, identified by CBS News as YouTuber Filthy Frank, has over 6.2...

    The group and its origins sound innocuous enough. But the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) — a right-wing group founded 36 years ago — has deepened connections between America’s religious right and Russians even as the latter have been sanctioned by the United States, according to a ThinkProgress investigation. By networking with Russians, the HSLDA — now America’s largest right-wing homeschooling association — has provided the Kremlin with a new avenue of influence over some of the most conservative organizations in the United States. And while investigations by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, intelligence organizations, and congressional committees have focused...

    Over the past 24 hours, journalists and public figures on Twitter have deleted previous posts slamming a group of MAGA hat-wearing teens for allegedly taunting a Native American vet, after more footage was released disputing the initial story. From CNN’s Jake Tapper to Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, many on the internet are sharing a fuller explanation of the initial viral story. Others, however, are very subtly just using the ‘delete’ button.

    A 7-year-old Ont. boy might have just added himself to next year’s naughty list after calling 911 for receiving snow pants as a Christmas gift. Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt -- who tweeted the incident -- said the call was placed in the early evening on Dec. 25. He said the boy was upset with his present and wanted the police to help. In a telephone interview on Wednesday, Schmidt told that the incident is "an awareness and educational moment" that prompts another reminder for parents and caregivers to talk to children about making 911 calls.
