  • China says NATO 'making enemies' in Asia

    China accused NATO of “making enemies” as the alliance acknowledged the “challenge” presented by the rising communist power amid the war in Ukraine. North American and European officials have negotiated a statement on China that is expected to be modest in substance but nonetheless significant for an alliance that historically has focused on security in the trans-Atlantic area. Yet Beijing marked the occasion with a sharp criticism of the Western powers, mirrored by an extemporaneous rebuke of China delivered by NATO’s top civilian. “China’s development presents an opportunity for the world, not a challenge for anyone,” Chinese Foreign Affairs Ministry...
  • ‘It’s bad’: Eric Adams admits being ‘shocked’ by the sorry state of NYC

    Mayor Eric Adams had no idea how rotten the Big Apple was at its core before taking office — telling The Post he was “shocked” to learn just “how bad this place is.” During an exclusive interview conducted as Adams rode the subways overnight for more than three hours last week, the former NYPD transit cop said he was astounded by the botched “deployment of resources” that has New Yorkers on edge amid a nearly 40 percent surge in major crimes this year. “Let me tell you something: When I started looking into this, I was shocked at how bad...
  • RETHINKING ABORTION

    06/28/2022 2:54:19 PM PDT · by whitney69 · 7 replies
    Roe v. Wade was a 1973 decision that affirmed a right to an abortion before fetal viability – “generally” understood by experts in present times to mean 24 weeks of pregnancy. Pregnancy lasts for about 280 days or 40 weeks so the marker is just better than half of the average of the normal human gestation period. But that doesn’t cover late term abortion, in some cases with the child partially outside the birth canal and with the attributes of living like breathing, moving, and in some cases, awake. Public discussion about abortion in the United States has generally focused...

    [Catholic Caucus] The City of Big Shoulders — and Liturgical Confusion: Chicago Faithful Flummoxed by Inconsistent Liturgy PolicyNEWS ANALYSIS: The juxtaposition of laxity for liturgical abuses with forceful crackdowns of reverent worship well beyond Pope Francis’s recent directives calls into question Cardinal Blase Cupich’s stated prioritization of promoting unity and the reforms of Vatican II.CHICAGO — Perhaps no U.S. diocese has implemented Traditiones Custodes, Pope Francis’s motu proprio restricting what is commonly known as the traditional Latin Mass, as forcefully as the Archdiocese of Chicago. In fact, Cardinal Blase Cupich’s enactment of the decree has gone beyond what the text...
  • Ghislaine Maxwell, 60, is sentenced to 20 years in low security 'Club Fed' Danbury prison for sex trafficking and abusing girls with Jeffrey Epstein

    06/28/2022 2:47:12 PM PDT · by algore · 19 replies
    Ghislaine Maxwell has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after telling the court meeting Jeffrey Epstein was the 'biggest regret of my life' and apologizing to her victims 'for the pain that you have experienced.' Judge Alison Nathan handed down the 240-month sentence followed by five years supervised release after calling Maxwell's crimes 'heinous and prefatory.' The judge imposed a fine of $750,000, pointing to the $10million bequest Maxwell received from Epstein. Judge Nathan also recommended she be sent to the Danbury, Connecticut, Federal Correctional Institution. The low-security federal prison was the inspiration for the fictional prison in the...

    Akhil Amar, the Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University, “is a self-described liberal, pro-choice Democrat.” Yet he supports the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade because, he said, “Roe just doesn’t cut it as a constitutional opinion.” In an appearance on the podcast Honestly with Bari Weiss, Amar, whose legal scholarship was cited multiple times in the Opinion of the Court that overturned Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, explained why he thinks the Constitution does not provide a right to terminate a pregnancy. “A person, like me, could be...

    NEW YORK (AP) — The news story that reportedly caused former President Donald Trump to throw his lunch against a White House wall came because of an interview that former Attorney General William Barr had arranged with The Associated Press. The story, which was published on Dec. 1, 2020, quoted Barr as saying that the U.S. Justice Department had uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election.

    Many Coloradans may not realize this, but this Tuesday will be a seismic turning point for our beautiful state. Primary voters will either head us down a path towards prosperity, or down a road to relentless government overreach in the state known for being the new frontier. In just three and a half years, Jared Polis and his party have taken us from number 11 to 29 in business-friendly states, driven us to No. 1 in bank robberies, auto theft, and property crime, and created a crisis for our kids with one of the top suicide rates and drug addiction...

    Two Boy Scout troops from Wisconsin played a major role in the rescue when an Amtrak train derailed in Missouri after hitting a dump truck at an uncontrolled crossing. The Boy Scouts from Appleton were on the train when it derailed. They jumped into action, breaking windows, helping people off the train and attempting to save the life of the dump truck driver, who died. Two mothers with whom WBAY spoke Monday night say the Scouts are shaken but proud of being able to help after the devastating crash. There were 16 youth, who are 13 to 17 years old,...

    Most teachers focus on academic considerations when assigning seats. A new study by Florida Atlantic University psychology researchers is the first to show that these classroom seat assignments also have important implications for children's friendships. Results of the study, published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, revealed that friendships reflect classroom seat assignments. Students sitting next to or nearby one another were more likely to be friends with one another than students seated elsewhere in the classroom. Moreover, longitudinal analyses showed that classroom seating proximity was associated with the formation of new friendships. After seat assignments changed, students were more...

    A new poll shows Democrats losing support among Asian American and Pacific Islander voters in several Senate battleground states compared to 2020, when Joe Biden won more than 61 percent of the fast-growing electoral bloc. The poll commissioned by Civiqs for Justice Unites Us shows that Democrats may need to invest more resources to mobilize Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) voters who traditionally favor their party but are now concerned about the direction of the economy. The poll conducted from June 10 to June 14 show that AAPI voters favor Democrats 55 percent to 34 percent on the generic...

    Is he really kidding though? President Biden joked Tuesday that he may not return from Spain as his average approval rating hit an all-time low amid the worst inflation since 1981 and record-high gas prices. Biden made the remark to Spanish King Philip VI in an apparent bid to compliment the beauty of the royal palace in Madrid. “There’s an old expression in a little town in Delaware called Claymont, Del, a little steel town. And they say, ‘We’re like poor relatives. We show up when we’re invited and we stay longer than we should.’ So be careful. We may...

    Just got back from a nice lunch with an acquaintance at Il Fornaio in Sacramento. Had the pasta with vodka sauce which is a favorite. The Jeffery Epstein & Ghislane Maxwell issue came up and where he works in the US Attorney's Office I was interested in his opinions. Unofficial opinions, of course, as he is not on that case. His observation was that so much focus on the Epstein Island was a distraction from the bigger crimes to be found at Epstein's NYC mansion and Epstein's New Mexico ranch. The NYC mansion has multiple ties to important Wall Street...

    SESAME STREET - Reports have confirmed that beloved Sesame Street resident Elmo died unexpectedly this morning just a few hours after receiving the COVID vaccine. "Elmo not feeling so good," Elmo reportedly said just moments before collapsing. Officials concluded the cause of death to be "unknown" although medical examiners claim he died of massive heart failure due to Myocarditis - a disease almost never observed in 3-year-olds like Elmo. "It's important to remember that our friend Elmo's death had nothing to do with the COVID vaccine, which is safe and effective," said Big Bird to reporters. "There is growing evidence...
