    Public institutions in California will have to opt for American-made food products starting Jan. 1, 2024 under a bill signed Tuesday by Gov. Gavin Newsom. Senate Bill 490 states that public institutions, including schools, need to budget for and purchase American-made foods unless they are more than 25% of the cost of imported ones. “This Buy American policy will benefit the California agricultural industry and agricultural workers, as well as the students and teachers consuming these meals in our schools,” Newsom said in a signing statement for this bill. While the agricultural industry supports the measure, some school districts argued...

    [Catholic Caucus] Francis’s Unholy Occupation of the Papacy, Fatima, and the Pressing Need for HolinessOctober 4, 2022 will mark the third anniversary of Francis’s introduction of the Pachamama idol at the Vatican. During the past three years, Francis has caused numerous other grave scandals, each of which would have been considered unthinkable prior to Vatican II:He has convoked the Synod on Synodality, which by its structure and objectives seeks to undermine the immutable nature of the Catholic Faith and set aside Christian morality;He travelled to Canada to apologize for evils the Church did not commit and be present for a...
  • Mitt Romney’s Refusal to Endorse Mike Lee Infuriates Senate Republicans

    Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-UT) decision not to endorse Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) reelection bid has infuriated Senate Republicans and conservative activists. Romney, Utah’s junior senator, has declined — and even refused — to endorse Lee’s reelection bid. Lee is the senior senator from Utah. Senate Republicans are becoming increasingly alarmed by the decision, noting that even though Senate Republicans may have their differences on policy, they typically stand united against Republican opponents. “I respect [Romney], and I understand that each state has its own dynamics, but I do not understand why he is remaining neutral,” one Republican senator said anonymously....

    A radio host laughed hysterically at New Zealand-based climate activist Izzy Cook during an on-air interview. The host was having a discussion with the young activist about actionable steps.. It is ironic that a climate activist would tell someone to not do something that they did themselves. Cook’s excuse was that her parents went so she didn’t have a choice. This is typical of climate activist type of people. Al Gore is the prime suspect. He is the type of person to rail against people with large carbon footprints as he travels the globe in private planes. When he is...

    The defence minister of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov believes that Belarusian soldiers have no motivation to enter the war with Ukraine, and if ordered by their authorities to fight, they would lay down their weapons. "I don't understand what would motivate Belarusians to consciously go to war with Ukraine, kill and die for no one knows what, even if they are officers who are under oath obliged to follow orders. If they go on the attack with their units, they could cross the Belarusian border, raise their hands, lay down their weapons and say, ‘Ukrainians, we are your syabry. [Belarusians] are...

    Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz remains in a statistical tie in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race with his radical Democrat opponent, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, according to a pair of polls. A Franklin & Marshall College poll published Thursday shows Fetterman has the support of 45 percent of registered voter participants, giving him just a 3-point lead over Oz, who garnered 42 percent of the response. As Oz is within the margin of error of 5.6 percentage points, the race is a statistical tie. The Republican has made tremendous gains on Fetterman in recent months and seems to be finding his stride...

    The Dominican Republic is building a 13-foot-high border wall — set to be the second-longest border wall in the Americas — in the hopes of ending waves of illegal immigration from Haiti.The government of the Dominican Republic began building the border wall in February to put a halt to illegal immigration from Haiti, which citizens have said is overwhelming their small communities, depressing wages, and undercutting their quality of life.The concrete and steel wall, when finished, will stand 13 feet tall, and stretch just over 100 miles. The only other existing border wall in the Americas that is longer is...

    How did harmful content and misinformation online get so bad — after so much time, money, and scores of people trying to limit the spread of inaccurate, violent, obscene, and harmful content? For starters, the problem is much bigger than it used to be, and human-driven efforts cannot keep up. Even with tens of thousands tackling the problem (Meta’s Trust & Safety team has swelled to an army of more than 40,000) the sheer amount of digital content is too overwhelming. Moderating this content by human review is not only time-consuming, ineffective, and error-prone, it also can endanger the mental...
