    Dr. Ben Carson, Housing and Urban Development Secretary under President Donald Trump, criticized Covid-19 vaccinations for children ages 5 to 11 as "a giant experiment" during a Sunday appearance on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures." Asked by anchor Maria Bartiromo whether he agreed with the recent Centers for Disease Control (CDC) decision to allow children to receive Pfizer's Covid vaccine, Carson definitively replied, "absolutely not." Carson, former director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, went on to explain his reasoning: The fact of the matter is, the mortality rate for children from COVID-19 is 0.025, which is...

    Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather took to social media Monday to defend Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving’s decision to remain unvaccinated despite the team’s vaccine mandate. “America is the land of the free: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and supposedly freedom to choose,” Mayweather said in a video posted on social media. “Never be controlled by money.” “I respect you for having some integrity and being your own man. A free mind makes his own choices and a slave mind follows the crowd,” Mayweather continued. “Stand for something or fall for anything. One man can lead a revolution to...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is phasing out New York City’s Gifted and Talented program, he announced Friday — bowing to critics who complain that the coveted model is racist. Current students in the program will be able to stay in accelerated-learning classes to completion. But new cohorts they will be completely eliminated by fall 2022, ending the current testing for 4-year-old city kids. “The era of judging four-year-olds based on a single test is over,” de Blasio said Friday. It is being replaced by Brilliant NYC, a program offering students aged 8 and up chances for accelerated learning — while...

    The fact that 24-year-old Jonathan Isaac can speak more cogently about COVID and freedom of conscience than the entire corporate press is an astonishing development.One of the most remarkable twists in the pandemic is that a handful of NBA players have emerged as the most cogent and principled defenders of liberty, common sense, and basic civic decency in America.It’s a bit unexpected. In recent years, the NBA has most often landed in the political news cycle thanks to LeBron James’ disgusting habit of bowing and scraping before the Chinese Communist Party, or Steve Kerr’s refusal to breathe a word about...

    A review of Facing Reality: Two Truths about Race in America by Charles Murray. Encounter Books, 168 pages. (June, 2021) I’ve known about Charles Murray since 1994, when I was a voracious and unsupervised teen reader in rural Oregon grabbing the library’s latest issue of the New Republic the instant it was shelved. It was here that I stumbled upon the shocking views Murray and Richard J. Herrnstein expressed in The Bell Curve about race, class, and inequality in America. I didn’t give those views much deep thought at the time, and so my perception of Murray and his ideas...

    A medical examiner in Michigan says an autopsy has determined that Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Matiss Kivlenieks died of chest trauma from an errant fireworks mortar blast, and not a fall as authorities previously reported. Police in Novi, Michigan, said the mortar-style firework tilted slightly and started to fire toward people nearby Sunday night. The 24-year-old Kivleniek was in a hot tub and tried to get clear with several other people, police Lieutenant Jason Meier said. The fire department and EMTs got to the private home shortly after 10 p.m. and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced...

    A group of over two dozen black ministers has signed a letter expressing strong criticism of Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock over his support for abortion. Warnock is headed for a January runoff election against Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler. “Unborn Black, Brown and White lives are so much more than clumps of cells, burdensome inconveniences, or health problems,” the ministers wrote to the radical Democrat, who is also a reverend. “They are sacred human persons endowed by God with inalienable dignity and worth,” the letter continues. “We implore you to uphold the Biblical defense of life and to fight against...

    LAWRENCE – President Donald Trump may have nearly ended the flow of refugees and other African immigrants to the United States, but a new study shows that at least those from Nigeria are well-educated, hardworking and contribute more to society than they cost the American social security system. The paper contrasts Nigerian newcomers with those from Somalia, whose work ethic is similarly strong, but whose lack of education hurts their employment prospects here. The authors argue that Americans should “reconsider the treatment of African immigrants as a collective group, as this obscures differences between immigrants from different African countries and...

    City Journal ^ | Autumn 2020 | Heather Mac Donald
    The United States is being torn apart by an idea: that racism defines America. The death of George Floyd under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer in late May 2020 catapulted this claim into national prominence; riots and the desecration of national symbols followed. Now, activists and their media allies are marshaling a more sweeping set of facts to prove the dominance of white supremacy: the absence of a proportional representation of blacks in a range of organizations. That insufficient diversity results from racial bias, claim the activists, and every few days, the press serves up another exposé of...

    This testimony from Dr. Linda Lee Tarver, who worked for 29 years at the Michigan Secretary of State is an absolute must-watch and the highlight of nearly eight hours of testimony from dozens (and dozens) of witnesses to the election fraud in Michigan - particularly in Detroit (TCF Center). Notably, she says there are **71 percent** of ballots that CANNOT be audited, and explains why. Not that it should matter, but she's African American and talks extensively during her testimony about how race and claims of "racism!" are frequently used any time there is a challenge to the vote in...
