    Headlines I never thought I’d see anywhere other than the Babylon Bee: Quebec couple fined $3,000 for wife walking husband on leash after (COVID) curfewOh those whacky Canadians, eh? I give these 2 Montréalités extra credit for creative mockery for the manner in which they registered their complaint against government imposed COVID restrictions. But you can’t get around the dictats of Big Government that easily. Silly people, that only works if you ARE Big Government. Like Gavin:Or Nancy:But little people are not allowed to “think outside the box” - that privilege is reserved for your Progressive government overlords. And the...

    A federal appeals court in California on Thursday ruled to lift a ban on President Donald Trump’s proclamation that blocks immigrants from entering the United States if they lack health insurance or the means to pay for hospital bills. In a Dec. 31 opinion (pdf), the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said that Trump acted within his authority when, in October 2019, he signed the Proclamation on the Suspension of Entry of Immigrants Who Will Financially Burden the United States Healthcare System. The ruling reverses a federal court decision to block the implementation of the president’s...

    The City of Detroit wants Sidney Powell and her self-styled “Kraken” team to face sanctions for “frivolously undermining ‘People’s faith in the democratic process and their trust in our government.'”The Motor City’s motion asks a federal judge to fine the lawyers, ban them from practicing in the Eastern District in Michigan and refer them to the Wolverine State’s bar for grievance proceedings.“It’s time for this nonsense to end,” Detroit’s lawyer David Fink told Law&Crime in a phone interview.“The lawyers filing these frivolous cases that undermine democracy must pay a price,” Fink added.Under standard procedures for Rule 11 sanctions, opposing counsel...

    President Trump will lose his current world-leader-status exemptions from Twitter’s policies after Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20, exposing him to stricter moderation. Twitter has confirmed that Trump’s personal account could face restrictions or even a ban if he continues proliferating what the platform considers “conspiracy theories” after becoming a private citizen, The Independent reported. (RELATED: Benjamin Netanyahu Removes Trump From His Twitter Profile Picture) Twitter applies unique policies to world leaders and various public officials of major importance, leaving rule-infringing content unremoved if the public has a “clear” interest in being able to access such content, according to The...

    Pennsylvania officials have been weighing a new ban on indoor dining and the mandatory closures of gyms and casinos — and a decision is likely to come within days, said a Capitol source with knowledge of the administration’s planning but not authorized to speak publicly about it. Though a spokesperson for Gov. Tom Wolf stressed that no decisions have been finalized, speculation ran through Harrisburg and beyond Wednesday about whether and when Wolf would implement new pandemic restrictions.

    The campaign Twitter account of Pennsylvania Senator Doug Mastriano, who organized Wednesday’s election integrity hearing, has been banned. Senator Mastriano of Pennsylvania’s 33rd District, organized and chaired the hearing in the state’s Senate today on election integrity that featured an appearance by President Donald Trump. Conservative commentator Jack Posobiec was the first to notice that Senator Mastriano’s campaign account had then been banned following the hearing. National File verified that the account @DougMastriano was that of the Senator’s. At the time of writing, there has been no reason given as to why the account was banned from Twitter. During the...

    Some of America’s largest residential landlords have moved to boot thousands of tenants from their homes during the coronavirus pandemic despite federal eviction protections, a new report says. Big corporate landlords have filed nearly 10,000 eviction actions in courts across five states even though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has barred them from kicking out many tenants who can’t pay rent because of the COVID-19 crisis, NBC News reported Monday.

    Seeking to stop the political bleeding, Joseph R. Biden struck out on the campaign trail Saturday in Pennsylvania, pushing back against President Trump’s charge that he wants to bring the hammer down on the oil and gas industry in the state by banning fracking. “Look let me be clear,” Mr. Biden said at a rally in Bucks County “I am not banning fracking in Pennsylvania or anywhere else.” Mr. Biden’s stance on the oil and gas industry is getting extra attention in the wake of the final presidential debate. Mr. Trump said Mr. Biden had delivered a mixed message on...

    A War Story for the Ages - During World War 2, the 7th BG's 9th Bomb Squadron was dispatched to destroy a railroad bridge at Pyinmana, about halfway between Rangoon and Mandalay and near two active enemy fighter bases. The formation was led by Col. Conrad F. Necrason, 7th BG commander. The B-24 on his right wing was piloted by 1st Lt. Lloyd Jensen whose copilot was 2d Lt. Owen J. Baggett. On that mission, Baggett was to earn a distinction believed to be unique in Air Force history. Before reaching Pyinmana, Burma, to destroy a bridge, the American B-24...

    Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.), perhaps unsatisfied with the misery of rolling blackouts to which ill-considered climate restrictions have subjected Californians, has ordered that no new gas-powered cars shall be sold in California beginning in the year 2035. What could possibly go wrong? California “is phasing out the internal combustion engine,” the governor tweeted in announcing his sweeping executive order. “By 2035 every new car sold in CA will be an emission free vehicle. Cars shouldn’t give our kids asthma. Make wildfires worse. Melt glaciers. Or raise sea levels.” NEW: We’re facing a climate crisis.We need bold action.CA is phasing out...

    The order directs the California Air Resources Board to develop a phase-out plan that would require 100 percent zero-emissions personal use and dryage vehicles by 2035 and as many medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicle applications deemed feasible by 2045. “Pull away from the gas pumps,” Newsom said. “Let us no longer be victims of geopolitical dictators that manipulate global supply chains and global markets.”

    Less than a day after issuing new health guidelines that banned trick-or-treating and other Halloween activities, Los Angeles County public health officials walked back the decision Wednesday. Citing an inability to maintain safe social distancing and the potential for gatherings beyond household members, county officials initially nixed trick-or-treating along with other Halloween traditions, including haunted houses and parades. But Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said Wednesday that the guidelines have been “slightly revised.” Ferrer said the change distinguishes between activities originally prohibited under the health officer order from activities that are “not recommended.”

    India has now banned over 200 mostly Chinese mobile apps, citing their collection of user data as a national security risk. India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology issued the latest ban on Sept. 2, naming a total of 118 mobile apps, according to a government press release.

The suit will mark a major escalation in the fight between President Donald Trump and the wildly popular TikTok, which has been downloaded more than 165 million times in the US and is owned by a Chinese parent company, ByteDance. TikTok said it is arguing in California federal court that the administration did not give the company a fair chance to defend itself from allegations...
