    The driver of a box truck that struck and killed five bicyclists on a stretch of Nevada highway last week, and told investigators he fell asleep at the wheel, had a high level of methamphetamine in his system, prosecutors said Wednesday. Jordan Alexander Barson, 45, of Kingman, Arizona, faces 12 felony charges, including driving under the influence and reckless driving, in a criminal complaint filed in Las Vegas. "Choices have consequences," Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said after a Las Vegas judge issued a warrant for Barson's arrest in the Dec. 10 crash on U.S. 95 between Boulder City...

    A man who was recently added to the FBI’s Most Wanted list for a cartel execution in Texas is linked to murders in the border state of Nuevo Leon, where his organization has established almost total control over one of Mexico’s wealthiest communities. In recent weeks, gunmen believed to be working under orders of Jose Rodolfo “El Gato” Villarreal carried out murders in the ritzy suburb of San Pedro within the greater Monterrey metro... Last week the FBI added El Gato to the list of Most Wanted fugitives for the 2013 murder of a cartel attorney in Southlake, Texas, near...

    The U-Haul truck captured on video distributing riot gear for Louisville protesters following a grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case was reportedly tied to the Louisville Bail Initiative, a left-wing activist group stacked with George Soros Justice Fellows. Almost immediately after the grand-jury announcement, protesters swarmed a U-Haul truck in a parking lot and took out riot gear, weapons, gas masks, and anti-police signs to use during clashes with police. ... Multiple journalists outed Holly Zoller, a board member of a Louisville Bail Project, as the person who allegedly rented the U-Haul and supplied the riot gear to...

    Researchers from the University of Alberta described the drug as a protease inhibitor, which works by interfering with a virus’ ability to replicate and therefore ending the infection. Lemieux said the drug was initially developed to prevent coronavirus infection in cats, which can result in the viral disease feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). She said research into its potential use in humans began during the SARS outbreak in 2003. To do this, the research team synthesized the drug’s compounds and tested them against SARS-CoV-2 – the virus that causes COVID-19 – in test tubes and in human cell cultures. Because the...

    As you send your kids off to college, you might be apprehensive about them getting killed. But if you follow the data instead of the media, you will understand that they are exponentially more likely to die from a car accident or from getting convinced to drink or shoot up drugs than from COVID-19. ... What is shocking and laughable, yet tragic at the same time, is the lack of recognition that not wearing masks (even assuming they work) is the least of the “high-risk” behavior on campuses. ... Drugs, alcohol, and deadly car crashes, unfortunately, are not limited by...

    Researchers develop 'poisoned arrow' to defeat antibiotic-resistant bacteria by Princeton University A team of Princeton researchers led by Prof. Zemer Gitai have found an antibiotic that can simultaneously puncture bacterial walls and destroy folate within their cells -- taking out even monstrous bacteria with the effectiveness of a poisoned arrow -- while proving immune to antibiotic resistance. Credit: Matilda Luk, Princeton University Office of Communications Poison is lethal all on its own—as are arrows—but their combination is greater than the sum of their parts. A weapon that simultaneously attacks from within and without can take down even the strongest opponents,...

    A Chinese laboratory has been developing a drug it believes has the power to bring the coronavirus pandemic to a halt. The outbreak first emerged in China late last year before spreading across the world, prompting an international race to find treatments and vaccines. A drug being tested by scientists at China's prestigious Peking University could not only shorten the recovery time for those infected, but even offer short-term immunity from the virus, researchers say. Sunney Xie, director of the university's Beijing Advanced Innovation Center for Genomics, told AFP that the drug has been successful at the animal testing stage....

    Over three weeks ago, hydroxychloroquine was all the rage in MAGA world, despite flawed and scattered evidence about whether the drug could help cure coronavirus. Now there is another drug, remdesivir, with positive early scientific data. Much of MAGA world wants little to do with it. At first, it may seem like a head-scratching response. President Donald Trump’s base has been quick to trumpet any potential solutions to the coronavirus pandemic - especially those Trump himself promotes - regardless of the red flags from medical experts. But with remdesivir, it’s the Trump-boosting pundits who are raising the red flags, even...

    On The Ingraham Angle Wednesday, Fox News host Laura Ingraham blasted the media for blaming President Trump for the bizarre case of a man who died from ingesting fish tank cleaner in March, supposedly thinking it was Hydroxychloroquine. But Ingraham highlighted a recent report in the Washington Free Beacon which found there may be more to this story than initially reported, even as the local police open an investigation. After playing clips of CNN and MSNBC journalists eagerly blaming Trump for Gary Lenius, of Mesa, Arizona’s death, she sighed, saying, "That is just despicable.” Ingraham then brought on Free Beacon...

    The World Health Organization (WHO) annually publishes its “Model list of Essential Medicines,” a chronicle of top-rated treatments that are already tested and approved for use globally. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ)—a medicine touted as an effective treatment for COVID-19 by some doctors around the world and by the Trump administration—appears on that list, which according to the WHO catalogs “the most efficacious, safe and cost-effective medicines for priority conditions.” The WHO states, “Priority conditions are selected on the basis of current and estimated future public health relevance, and potential for safe and cost-effective treatment.” Certainly a media-hyped, global pandemic that has produced...

    An anti-parasitic head lice drug available around the world has been found to kill COVID-19 in the lab within 48 hours. A Monash University-led study has shown a single dose of the drug Ivermectin could stop the SARS-CoV-2 virus growing in cell culture. 'We found that even a single dose could essentially remove all viral RNA (effectively removed all genetic material of the virus) by 48 hours and that even at 24 hours there was a really significant reduction in it,' Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute's Dr Kylie Wagstaff said on Friday. While it's not known how Ivermectin works on the...

    President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that the administration was launching an all out assault on Mexican drug cartels using the U.S. Military.  “As governments and nations focus on the Coronavirus, there is a growing threat that cartels, criminals, terrorists, and other malign actors will try to exploit the situation for their own gain and we must not let that happen,” Trump said. “We will never let that happen. Today the United States is launching enhanced counter narcotics operations in the western hemisphere to protect the American people from the deadly scourge of illegal narcotics.”“We must not let the drug...

    The media have been lying about a potentially effective treatment for the COVID-19 coronavirus, Tucker Carlson reported this week. “Well, here’s why,” the Fox News pundit told his audience last night. “Donald Trump is for it.” Ever since the American president announced the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus sweeping the world, the American media have been downplaying its potential, lying about it, and manipulating the public. “If Trump is for it, they're against it, even if it might save American lives,” Carlson declared. “What reactive children they are. And they immediately began a sustained push to...

Then a friend sent him an article about hydroxychloroquine. **SNIP** Thirty minutes later, nurses administered the drug, and for two hours, he felt his heart race and experienced an episode where he couldn’t breathe. He then woke up at 4:45 the next morning and felt “like nothing ever happened." His breathing...

    A 62-year-old man who became Spain’s first coronavirus patient is believed to have made a full recovery after being treated with an HIV drug, according to a report. Miguel Ángel Benítez was hospitalized at the Virgen del Rocio Hospital in Seville, where he received lopinavir-ritonavir, an antiretroviral drug sold under the brand name Kaletra, according to Metro UK, which cited El Pais. The drug - which has been used to treat HIV and AIDS for over 10 years - was combined with interferon beta, a protein that prevents cells from becoming infected and is used on people with multiple sclerosis...
