    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner appeared Saturday on the network to declare that “we just can’t do” Christmas “this year” because of COVID-19. “So the next big holiday is obviously the Christmas, New Year’s holiday where people tend to travel, want to travel, want to be with family, but we just can’t do it this year. We’re going to cause needless deaths and particularly that’s among people we really care about, you know, our most vulnerable, our grandparents, our parents, our neighbors,” Reiner said. “We can’t travel this year. We need to stay home. This is a sacrifice that...

Gavin Newsom said in a Monday press conference the state is considering a new stay-at-home order in purple-tier counties if cases continue to surge.The state is experiencing the highest rate of increase in COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic, and in one to two weeks, new cases resulting from Thanksgiving gatherings are expected to pop up and accelerate the surge. "If these trends continue, we're going to have to take much more dramatic, arguably drastic action," Newsom said.

    But even after Mr. Comey told the Gang of 8 that the President was not under investigation, the Minority Leader told the media that the President was under investigation. Of course that further the media hysteria. The Minority Leader even tried to say that the Senate shouldn’t vote on the Supreme Court nomination because the President was under investigation and the whole time he knew it was not true.

    Given the incredible testimony of Mr. Comey wherein the contradictions from prior testimony and apparent abuses of power abound, why would it not be appropriate to investigate Mr. Comey. He certainly has created at least probable cause that he is a source of top secret leaks of classified information. Sessions probably would not want to tackle this direction for fear of it looking retaliatory. Thus, I say sauce for the Goose. I propose appointing a special counsel to investigate this. After all, have not the democrats touted the need for such independent prosecutors. The Special Counsel's mandate would be to...

    RAYMOND N.H. — With her trademark no-nonsense style, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann promised Granite State voters she’d run the White House with a “titanium spine” today while blasting President Obama for wasting tax dollars and kowtowing to the politically correct. “The American people have had enough. They’ve had it up to here,” a fiery Bachmann told a crowd of roughly 250 gathered in a back yard in Raymond, N.H. “President Obama, you are a one-term president ... We can’t afford four more years of millions of Americans out of work. We can’t afford it. It’s got to go.”

    President Barack Obama, joined by Ohio governor Ted Strickland, came to Ohio today to continue his permanent campaign on health-care legislation. His campaign events during the 2008 presidential race attracted crowds of thousands of Ohioans; this time, President Obama managed a crowd of about 200 people. With his negative approval numbers in Ohio (44 percent approve, 52 percent disapprove), it isn’t much of a surprise that few showed up to hear him once again talk about health care. On health care, Ohioans disapprove of the job President Obama is doing (34 percent approve, 58 percent disapprove). On the health-care proposal,...

    In the Towers of Silence, an ancient ritual of death comes under threat By Peter Foster in New Delhi (Filed: 12/09/2006) The viability of the centuries-old Zoroastrian custom of allowing vultures to consume the corpses of its devotees has been called into question after a relative of one of the dead discovered piles of rotting bodies lying almost untouched by the birds. Dhun Baria, a member of Bombay's Zoroastrian community, known as Parsis, was shocked to be told that the body of her mother had lain untouched for nine months after she was laid to rest at the Towers of...

Swedish researchers used a national registry of more than 11 million people stretching back to 1932 to assess how parents’ history of heart problems might link to the health woes of their children. Their analysis focused specifically on people in the database who had suffered a heart attack or angina, a severe constricting pain in the...

Brandon, who was promoted to the rank of sergeant by his fellow Marines, has cystic fibrosis, a genetic lung disorder. Since his one wish was train with Marines and to “save the world,” the Marines of 2nd Tanks arranged a...
