  • ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ Demonstrates The Strength Of Friendship In Adversity [Spoiler Alert]

    The Federalist ^ | November 19, 2020 | Mitch Hall
    Netflix’s new limited series, “The Queen’s Gambit,” leads the site’s top ten most popular list for the third straight week since its late October premiere, making it one of the platform’s most-watched shows of 2020. This feat is all the more impressive considering the steep competition among streaming providers this year. Adapted from Walter Tevis’s 1983 novel and brought to life by veteran screenwriters Scott Frank and Allan Scott, the mini-series depicts the unexpectedly cutthroat world of 1960s chess against the lavish backdrop of the Cold War era, when chess boards were just another arena in which rival nations competed...

    Accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein is being kept this close to El Chapo at a Manhattan jail, sources told The Post. Epstein — who was arrested on sex-crime charges last week — landed in cell No. 4, three doors down from Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo’’ Guzman, sources said. Chapo is in cell No. 1 in the notorious solitary-confinement unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center known as “10 South.” “The place is so f–king disgusting,” Chapo’s lawyer, Jeffrey Lichtman, told The Post. “In the winter, when it’s 30 degrees outside, you’re freezing your a– off because they’re blowing air conditioning...

    March 28 – very early in the pandemic – an article that I felt at the time received far too little attention. “Drugs, Suicide, and Crime: Empirical Estimates of the Human Toll of the Shutdown” by economists Audrey and Thomas Duncan cited empirical literature on the human toll of economic devastation. This article forecasted more than 100,000 excess deaths due to drug overdoses, suicide, alcoholism, homicide, and untreated depression – all a result not of the virus but of policies of mandatory human separation, economic downturn, business and school closures, closed medical services, and general depression that comes with a...
  • On Election Night, the Real Winner Was Drugs

    Drugs are winning the war on drugs. [...] But there was one absolutely certain loser last night: the war on drugs. If Americans across the country provided a clear mandate for anything this year, it's ending the hold that drug prohibition has on our country. Of nine drug decriminalization or legalization measures on state ballots last night—including two addressing hallucinogens and one covering all illegal drugs—not a single one failed. These were decisive victories, too, not close calls. And unlike some previous waves of pro-marijuana votes, which were concentrated in predictable areas, successful anti–drug war measures in 2020 spanned a...

    Democrat-controlled Oregon has become the first state to decriminalize hard drugs, including meth, heroin, and cocaine, according to reports. The state's lawmakers passed legislation early on Wednesday morning in a 59-41% vote, according to the Associated Press. The "Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act" seeks to transition Oregon's drug policy from a punitive, criminal approach to "a humane, cost-effective, health approach."

    Oregon has become the first state in the U.S. to decriminalize personal possession of all drugs, while Washington D.C. allows for consumption of magic mushrooms and New Jersey and Arizona legalize marijuana for recreational use. The move to decriminalize hard drugs including heroin and methamphetamine in Oregon - as well as legalizing the use of psilocybin mushrooms - passed by two large margins on Tuesday. Known as Measure 110, it will completely change how Oregon's justice system treats those who are found with personal-use amounts of the hard drugs.

    Police say a Taylorsville woman was behind the crime, when a man was kidnapped, beaten and forced to strip naked. According to an arrest report, the incident happened last month in Taylorsville. Police say 36-year-old Leslie Tindle admitted to luring the victim from his home. That's when an accomplice hit him, according to the arrest report, and Tindle forced him to strip. The man was later found along Bloomfield Road, naked and beaten with his hands zip-tied behind his back. Police say Tindle told them it was all because the victim was in the car when someone else took her...

    Purdue Pharma, the company that makes OxyContin, the powerful prescription painkiller that experts say helped touch off an opioid epidemic, will plead guilty to three federal criminal charges as part of a settlement of more than $8 billion, Justice Department officials announced Wednesday. The company will plead guilty to three counts, including conspiracy to defraud the United States and violating federal anti-kickback laws, the officials said. The resolution will be detailed in a bankruptcy court filing in federal court. Ed Bisch, who lost his 18-year-old son to an OxyContin overdose nearly 20 years ago, said he wants to see people...

    Multiple pictures and videos allegedly showing Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden engaging in sexual acts with several women and using drugs went viral on the Internet on Saturday, October 24, making people question if the visuals were fake or real. According to a Washington Examiner report, the videos and photos were uploaded on the Chinese website GTV, with many of the pictures seemingly from a third-party laptop. GTV, a subsidiary of GTV Media Group, was established in April 2020 by Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui and Steve Bannon, a former senior adviser to President Trump. “U.S. presidential candidate...

    The opioid crisis affects thousands of Americans daily; companies like Walmart work to curb addiction at their pharmacies by blocking questionable prescriptions. However, in a federal lawsuit filed by the company on Thursday, Walmart leaders said federal agencies are asking them for too much, trying to require them to second-guess doctors’ orders on entire categories of prescriptions. “It’s disturbing that this is the turn it’s taken,” said Dr. Joseph Sbarra, a local physician at Sickbay on Highway 77. News 13 interviewed him earlier this year when he said he’d had several patients say certain pharmacists were limiting their prescriptions that...

    The immune system is usually seen as our ally in fighting disease, but in the case of coronavirus, it can sometimes turn into our foe. A phenomenon known as a cytokine storm has been implicated in many fatal cases of Covid-19, and several drugs are currently being tested to calm this storm and raise patients’ chances of survival. These drugs are known as anti-C5 drugs as they prevent a molecule named C5 from triggering the complement system to produce cytokines, which are known to cause inflammation in the body. Over-activation of cytokines (also known as a cytokine storm) has also...

    FAIRMONT, W.Va. — It’s unlikely a man already on probation thought his plans through this week when he reported for a required drug test. According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, Roger King, 38, of Fairmont arrived on October 14th for the required drug test at the Marion County Probation Office. During the test, deputies found eight bags of a “tan powder” along with a hypodermic needle in King’s pocket. A field test of the material revealed it was positive as Fentanyl. The test prompted deputies to get a search warrant for King’s phone. A forensic download of material found...

    Rudy Giuliani explains how Hunter Biden’s laptop was acquired. “The process was that the laptop was left by Hunter Biden, in an inebriated… heavily inebriated state with the merchant,” claimed Giuliani on the show. “The merchant fixed the laptop, tried to reach Hunter Biden and Hunter Biden never came back for it.” “The document that I have signed by Hunter Biden says that after 90 days the hard drive is abandoned and it becomes the property of the merchant. Sometime after it became his property, he became very suspicious that maybe he had evidence of a crime sitting in his...
