    Danny Trejo: The actor who went from prisoner to film star [Image] Danny Trejo has been shot, stabbed, crushed, eaten and tortured . . . multiple times. Con Air, Zombie Hunter and 3-Headed Shark Attack (yes . . . that's a real film) are just three of the movies in which he's ended up dead. If you're a Breaking Bad fan, he's the guy whose head famously ends up on top of a tortoise. According to one survey, the 76-year-old has died on screen more than any other actor. "It shows I've been working," he jokes. And if you didn't...

    A circuit judge ordered Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D) on Thursday to cease issuing or enforcing executive orders related to Covid-19 on the same day that the Democrat signed an executive order mandating that Kentuckians must wear a facial covering or mask in public in certain situations. Scott County Circuit Judge Brian Privett issued a temporary restraining order against Beshear in a case filed by Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles and agritourism business Evans Orchard and Cider Mill, LLC, challenging the governor's use of executive power during the pandemic. Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, a Republican, joined the lawsuit last...

    The left is panicking because black Americans are abandoning the Dem party. They want division back and some of their efforts are so over the top its laughable. However, it's designed to divide. "Together we stand" so they are frantically trying to create racial discord.Here's the Twitter link to the 3 minute Tucker Carlson video clip: https://twitter.com/RealJamesWoods/status/1281426779605876738I'll put two still images from the video below.

    Police in Fond du Lac, Wis., say a 27-year-old man intentionally slammed his pickup head-on into a motorcyclist because he was “targeting a White person,” leaving the rider dead last week, investigators said Thursday. Daniel Navarro allegedly swerved his father’s 2004 Dodge Dakota pickup into the victim’s path without braking on July 3, Fond du Lac Sheriff Ryan Waldschmidt said at a news conference Thursday. Authorities identified the deceased as 55-year-old Phillip Thiessen, a Marine veteran and former Virginia police officer who had retired from a career with the Wisconsin Department of Justice, where he’d investigated crimes against children. After...

    US President Donald Trump’s world is small. And simple. He only acknowledges the facts that suit him. He gets rid of people whose opinions do not match his. He refuses to consider points contrary to his politics. Trump’s agenda is simple: give more to the people who already have plenty — and keep Christians on his side so that they vote for him again. […] Though many countries put stringent measures in place to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, Trump refused to take the pandemic seriously. It was as if he thought that he was still hosting a...

    "We've learned more due to research and additional scientific evidence and now we know [that] not only wearing a mask prevents the person wearing the mask to transmit to others, but wearing the mask protects the person who's wearing it," said Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at UC Davis Children’s Hospital. "So the wearer of the mask, even the standard rectangular surgical masks...will decrease the risk of infection by the person wearing the mask by about 65 percent."

    Michael Cohen pleaded not to be hauled back into prison after US Marshals broke out the shackles when they took him into custody Thursday. “I’ll sign exactly what you want me to sign, so I don’t have to go back to jail,” Cohen whined to the lawmen who proceeded to chain him and take him into their custody, his former lawyer and friend Lanny Davis said. Cohen was brought into custody by the marshals at Manhattan federal court, where he reported Thursday morning to have an ankle bracelet attached and to sign terms of his new home confinement. Cohen refused...

    Footage posted online this week captured the moment a vandal sprayed graffiti outside a Lower Manhattan courthouse, right under the noses of several cops — who do nothing but watch. The video, posted by the Sergeants’ Benevolent Association on Tuesday and taken in broad daylight, shows the man tagging the base of a lamppost in front of the Surrogate’s Courthouse at 31 Chambers St., which had already been vandalized amid Occupy City Hall protests last week. After the man finishes his scrawl, he strolls away, as three cops on the corner — and four on the next block — stand idle. “Watch...
