    VIDEOBWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Mark down August 10, 2022. That was the day that The Hill Rising channel labeled Chuck Schumer as "Schmuck Schumer" as you can plainly see. I've heard him called that before but NEVER on a mainstream broadcast. It was so surprising to see that label that even after watching Briahna Joy Gray's commentary a number of times I still have trouble recalling what she actually said since I just couldn't get past that "Schmuck Schumer" label they put up. And how did Gray manage to keep from bursting out laughing while delivering her commentary next to that label?
  • Neighbors want Atlanta gas station closed after cops called at least 73 times so far this year [Shootings, stabbings, drug dealing, and prostitution on Martin Luther King Drive]

    08/10/2022 10:57:39 AM PDT · by grundle · 73 replies ^ | August 10, 2022 | Candace McCowan
    One community says a local gas station is littered with crime. From violence to prostitution to drugs, police are responding to the gas station on average every few days. Now business owners are neighbors are coming together to try to close it. The thought among a group of concerned neighbors and business owners is that getting a judge to agree to shut down the business will solve the crime problem. But one woman is warning about the impact a shut down would have. There is no debate there is an issue at this Citgo on Martin Luther King Drive in...
  • Plans To Dig the Biggest Lithium Mine in the US Face Mounting Opposition

    HUMBOLDT COUNTY, Nevada—Deep below the tangled roots of the old-growth sagebrush of Thacker Pass, in an extinct super-volcano, lies one of the world’s largest deposits of lithium—a key element for the transition to clean energy. But above ground, a cluster of tents has risen in the Northern Nevada desert where, for eight months, environmental and tribal activists are protesting plans to mine it for “green” technologies. “We are not leaving until this project is canceled,” said Max Wilbert, of the Protect Thacker Pass campaign. “If need be, this will come down to direct action. We mean to put ourselves in...

    Someone with a sharp mind and the capacity to do a lot of research spent time putting some numbers together: 1 Train has 100 cars, 2 engines and weighs 27,240,000 LBS 1 Train carries 3,000,000 gallons of oil. 1 train uses 55.5 gallons of diesel per mile. It takes 119,000 gallons of diesel to go 2150 miles from Hardidsy, AB to Freeport, TX. Keystone pipeline was to deliver 34,860,000 gallons of oil per day. It would take 12 trains and 1,428,000 gallons of diesel to deliver that amount. PER DAY! 521,220,000 gallons of diesel per year. The oil will still...

    In 1987, philosopher Allan Bloom published The Closing of the American Mind, a book critiquing higher education in America. As a self-described teacher “dedicated to liberal education,” Bloom offered a thoughtful account of illiberal cultural and ideological trends: Civic education turned away from concentrating on the Founding to concentrating on openness based on history and social science. There was even a general tendency to debunk the Founding, to prove the beginnings were flawed in order to license a greater openness to the new. What began in Charles Beard’s Marxism and Carl Becker’s historicism became routine. Over three decades later, moralistic...

    FEAST OF SAINT LAWRENCE, DEACON AND MARTYR JOHN 12:24–26 Friends, in today’s Gospel, just after announcing that he was about to be glorified on the cross, Jesus declares: “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.” A seed can exist for a long time—they have found seeds in the tombs of the Pharaohs. But unless they fall into the soil and crack open, nothing further comes of them. Their life is inside, but it’s a life...

    Unlike with the Covid relief packages in recent years, there would be no direct payments or checks in the mail for broad swaths of people. So what’s in it for ordinary Americans? Medicare beneficiaries’ yearly out-of-pocket drug expenses would be capped at $2,000 starting in 2025. Today, there is no cap. Medicare seniors would also have the option of spreading out the expenses over monthly payments. In addition, the bill would grant them free recommended vaccines, including vaccines for Covid and shingles. The bill would offer a credit of up to $7,500 for qualified “clean” vehicles, including popular models from...

    The nurse accused of killing five people last week when her Mercedes plowed into traffic at a busy Windsor Hills intersection had been involved in 13 previous crashes, Los Angeles County prosecutors alleged Monday in charging her with murder.

    Los Angeles County narcotics investigators were unable to convince District Attorney George Gascon or California Attorney General Rob Bonta to file felony charges against international cartel members after busting the largest illegal marijuana operation in the area’s history. The monthslong operation culminated during 10 days in May when 287 search warrants were served by hundreds of law enforcement officials in a desert north of Los Angeles. They found harvested marijuana worth $1.4 billion along with 40 firearms, which included numerous rifles. Authorities arrested 105 people. Investigators sought to convince Gascon’s office that felony charges were warranted in this case because...

(snip) The senior Justice Department source says that Garland was regularly briefed on the Records Act investigation, and that he knew about the grand jury and what material federal prosecutors were seeking. He insists, though, that Garland had no prior knowledge of the date and time of the specific raid, nor was he asked to approve it....

    In the wake of the US Supreme Court's reversal of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that created a nationwide right to an abortion, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) has filed suit against an Idaho state law that limits the circumstances in which an abortion may be performed to saving the life of the mother or if the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest. In the DOJ suit, Attorney General Merrick Garland's team claims that the Idaho law "violates the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act of 1994, which requires health care providers to treat and stabilize anyone coming...

    Nearly three dozen people have been sickened by a new virus spreading in China — with scientists warning it is too early to tell if it is deadly or spreads among humans. The Langya henipavirus — or LayV — appears to be jumping from animals in parts of China, nearly three years after the coronavirus pandemic started there. It belongs to a family of viruses that “are known to infect humans and cause fatal disease,” a Chinese-led team of international scientists wrote in a peer-reviewed study in the New England Journal of Medicine. That includes the Nipah virus, which spreads...

    The US Justice Department announced criminal charges Wednesday against a member of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps for allegedly trying to orchestrate the assassination of John Bolton, who served in senior national security positions during the Trump and Bush administrations. The alleged plot was "likely in retaliation" for the January 2020 US air strike that killed Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Justice Department said.

    During Monday’s transmission of MSNBC‘s “The Beat With Ari Melber,” the host touched on last week’s Alex Jones Sandy Hook lawsuit verdict that resulted in a jury issuing a $50 million fine against the Infowars founder. Melber’s segment explained the precedent set by the Jones trial will now be used to take out other media personalities and outlets countering establishment narratives, which will be a death blow to the First Amendment. “This is actually a larger warning for other liars and conspiracy theorists in our society and our politics,” the MSNBC host said. “It’s a rebuke and a punishment that...

    Ford is increasing the starting prices of its electric F-150 Lightning truck by as much as $8,500 due to “significant material cost increases and other factors.” CNBC reports that Ford said on Tuesday that it would be increasing the starting prices of its electric F-150 Lightning pickup truck due to “significant material cost increases and other factors.” The automaker said that the price increases, which are between $6,000 and $8,500, will not impact customers who have already ordered the vehicle and are awaiting delivery. President Joe Biden infamously test drove an electric F-150 in 2021. Biden shared his opinion on...
