    The Minneapolis man who tested positive for the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in one of the US’s first cases has spoken out, saying it had not “crossed my mind” that he might have been exposed to the virus. Peter McGinn, 30, who is fully vaccinated and received a booster shot, said he went out following the Anime NYC 2021 event at the Javits Center last month to a bar with several other vaccinated attendees, half of whom have since tested positive for the virus, ABC News reported. “I felt perfectly safe with the people that I was with, and so...
  • MSNBC Blacks Out Historic Win by Black Republican Winsome Sears

    11/03/2021 8:40:24 PM PDT · by 11th_VA · 18 replies
    In a night of news coverage devoted to the racial undertones of the Virginia gubernatorial election, MSNBC failed to devote any significant coverage to the election of Republican lieutenant governor candidate Winsome Sears, who became the first black woman elected to statewide office in Virginia history. MSNBC's main political panel of commentators Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid, and Nicolle Wallace, who argued throughout Tuesday night's election coverage that Republicans ran a racist campaign in Virginia, did not mention Sears a single time as it watched returns come in. The 57-year-old Jamaican immigrant and Marine veteran ran at the top of the...

    The US has issued its first-ever passport with an “X” gender designation — in what advocates have praised as a historic win for non-binary, intersex and gender-nonconforming people. The unidentified traveler was allowed to choose an “X” instead of an “F” or “M,” for female or male, in the “sex” section of the federally issued document, the State Department announced Wednesday. “I want to reiterate, on the occasion of this passport issuance, the Department of State’s commitment to promoting the freedom, dignity, and equality of all people — including LGBTQI+ persons,” Ned Price, a spokesman for the department, said in...

    Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced on Thursday a world-first vaccination drive to inoculate people over 60 with a third COVID vaccine dose, starting Sunday.“Call your parents and grandparents now and make sure they get the third shot,” Bennett told a televised press briefing, claiming there is enough evidence to support the need for a third dose of the Pfizer vaccine."Reality proves the vaccines are safe," Bennett said. "Reality also proves the vaccines protects from severe morbidity and death. And like the flu vaccine that needs to be renewed from time to time, it is the same in this case."As of...

    A light-colored "paver stone" like the ones seen in this mosaic will be the likely target for first sampling by the Perseverance rover. The image was taken on July 8, 2021 in the "Cratered Floor Fractured Rough" geologic unit at Jezero Crater. NASA is making final preparations for its Perseverance Mars rover to collect its first-ever sample of Martian rock, which future planned missions will transport to Earth. The six-wheeled geologist is searching for a scientifically interesting target in a part of Jezero Crater called the "Cratered Floor Fractured Rough." This important mission milestone is expected to begin within...

    Republicans from various factions in the GOP are racing to distance themselves — and the party at large — from a band of hard-line House conservatives whose flirtation with forming a caucus espousing white nationalist views has ignited a firestorm of controversy on Capitol Hill. GOP leaders, anti-Trump centrists and vulnerable Republicans in battleground districts wasted little time in recent days denouncing the “America First Caucus,” whose stated purpose in a platform document included the defense of America as a nation “strengthened by a common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions."

    Solyndra is no longer the administration’s biggest energy blunder. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper appeared a think tank event held in Washington yesterday. Harper said Obama’s rejection of the controversial pipeline — even temporarily — stressed Canada’s need to find other buyers for oilsands crude. And that wouldn’t change even if the president’s mind did. “Look, the very fact that a ‘no’ could even be said underscores to our country that we must diversify our energy export markets,” Harper told Harman in front of a live audience Canada could make more money by creating a market for its oil rather...
  • If they come after the First Amendment will the ACLU do anything?

    If as rumored that Biden is going to go after the First Amendment with new "domestic terrorist" laws will the ACLU and the 'Left' do anything? Or will they cheer on a clamp down on conservatives even if it blatantly violates the Constitution as the USA PATRIOT Act did in 2001? I strongly suspect they will go after sites like FreeRepublic under any new laws. At the moment they can ban conservatives from social media but that doesn't take them offline. I might not be able to get the Parler app off the Google store but I can still visit...
