    Fox has unveiled a new entry in the Night at the Museum series: Night at the Museum: Revenge of the Statues. The film will center around angry statues emerging from dumpsters and rivers where Antifa rioters threw them in order to destroy the outraged protesters. Christopher Columbus, Teddy Roosevelt, and George Washington will stalk the frightened rioters one by one. "This summer, the statues are back, and this time, it's personal," says the movie voice guy in the trailer released by Fox today. "No more Mr. Nice Grant." "You won't take them for granite anymore." The trailer then shows a...

    Statue tipping has become the leftist activity du jour of late. Astonishingly, the magazine Popular Mechanics has published a story about how to take down statues without anyone getting hurt: "Should you happen to find yourself near a statue that you decide you no longer like, we asked scientists for the best, safest ways to bring it to the ground without anyone getting hurt — except, of course, for the inanimate racist who’s been dead for a century anyway," writer James Stout begins. Stout also taps mechanical engineer Scott Holland to provide explicit details of how to safely bring down...
  • Complete ignorance! Tearing down Ulysses Grant statue in San Francisco

    Joe Rivano Barton - Nearby statue of Ulysses S. Grant is also toppled. He was a slave owner too, before the Civil War. That’s three for three this night. Lots of folks inexplicably defending a slave owner on Juneteenth, so just to be clear: Grant owned a slave for about a year and married into a slave owning family. If you’re defending the toppling of his statue on a day commemorating emancipation, ask yourself why.

Junipero Serra, Francis Scott Key and Ulysses S. Grant were toppled at Golden Gate Park on Friday. A group of roughly 100 people pulled down the statues about 8 or 9 p.m., an eyewitness said. One video posted to Twitter showed the group using a strap to topple the statue of Serra. The statue, according to the University of California, was first unveiled in 1907.

    The Chinese laboratory at the center of scrutiny over a potential coronavirus leak has been using U.S. government money to carry out research on bats from the caves which scientists believe are the original source of the deadly outbreak. The Wuhan Institute of Virology undertook coronavirus experiments on mammals captured more than 1,000 miles away in Yunnan which were funded by a $3.7 million grant from the US government. Sequencing of the COVID-19 genome has traced it back to bats found in Yunnan caves but it was first thought to have transferred to humans at an animal market in Wuhan....

    On August 8th, 1885, New York City hosted the longest funeral procession in history for General U.S. Grant. Grant had died two weeks earlier at Grant Cottage near Saratoga Springs, NY after completing his memoirs. The photos are mostly from a rare commemorative book published shortly after the funeral. This video has been produced by Tim Welch from scans of photographs shot by the U.S. Instant Photographic Company of Boston. (appx 20 mins)

    Nearly a decade into his life sentence for murder, Lydell Grant was escorted out of a Texas prison in November with his hands held high, free on bail, all thanks to DNA re-examined by a software program. "The last nine years, man, I felt like an animal in a cage," Grant, embracing his mother and brother, told the crush of reporters awaiting him in Houston. "Especially knowing that I didn't do it." Now, Grant, 42, is on a fast-track to exoneration after a judge recommended in December that Texas' highest criminal court vacate his conviction. His attorneys are hopeful a...

    A few days before Christmas last year, after he was elected to the U.S. Senate but before he’d left Tallahassee for Washington, former Florida Gov. Rick Scott gave a $16 million gift to Orange County. It was a grant to help pay for an extension of Kirkman Road in the county’s International Drive tourism corridor, and it had been pulled from a pot of economic development money known as the “Florida Job Growth Grant Fund.” It was the biggest grant Scott had ever awarded through the fund, which he and the Florida Legislature established in 2017 amid promises to end...

    BALTIMORE -- Juan Grant, who led protests across Baltimore demanding answers after the arrest and in-custody death of his best friend Freddie Gray in 2015, was shot dead on Saturday while driving to his grandmother's house in west Baltimore. The 33-year-old's murder came on the fourth anniversary of Gray's funeral and the citywide riots that highlighted the frustration and distrust with the police department and the deep divide that exists to this day in Maryland's largest city. A day after Grant's death, another gunman in the city's western district fired into a crowd of people enjoying an afternoon cookout, killing...

    Juan Grant, a close family friend of Freddie Gray’s who led protests in front of the Western District police station demanding answers after Gray’s death from injuries suffered in police custody in 2015, was shot to death in West Baltimore Saturday, his family said. Grant, whose brother had a child with Gray’s twin sister, was best friends with Gray and considered the two brothers-in-law. As tensions rose in the days after the 25-year-old died of spinal cord injuries following his arrest four years ago near Gilmor Homes, Grant returned daily to the police station and met with then-Police Commissioner Anthony...

    In November, 1863, the New York Herald reported that a temperance committee had asked President Lincoln to dismiss Ulysses S. Grant. They told him the general was an imbiber of strong spirits, to which Lincoln replied: “I wish you would tell me the brand of Whiskey Grant drinks. I would like to send a barrel to my other generals.” This story is probably apocryphal, but it captures the contempt with which the socially awkward Grant was viewed by the eastern establishment. This came to mind when I read the following about President Trump by a little old lady named George...

    PINEVILLE, Mo. — Gregg Sweeten had difficulty last week putting his reaction into words. When he learned that funding for the long-sought Bella Vista Bypass had been found, Sweeten, the Pineville mayor and McDonald County emergency manager, was stunned. Then he was elated. "That is amazing," Sweeten said. "That is going to be so great. I think it’s going to lead to all kinds of opportunities not only for Pineville but for McDonald County. I mean, it’s just — I just can’t say how happy I am. Wow. That is ... that’s wild. That’s amazing. That’s a Christmas present right...

    Baltimore rapper Nick Breed — whose lyrics often reflected the pain and trauma he’d seen in the city — was fatally shot Sunday in the Allendale neighborhood. The rapper, whose real name is Dominic Grant, according to friends and family, was found with gunshot wounds in the 500 block of Normandy Ave. around 7:30 p.m. Sunday, police said. The 24-year-old was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center and was pronounced dead soon after arriving, officials said. Grant, whose music videos garnered thousands of views online, collaborated with some of the city’s biggest names, including YBS Skola and...

    “So Robert E. Lee was a great general,” Trump told the audience. “And Abraham Lincoln developed a phobia.” “He couldn’t beat Robert E. Lee,” he explained. “He was going crazy.” “I don’t know if you know this story,” he continued. “But Robert E. Lee was winning battle after battle after battle.” “And one day it was looking really bad and Lincoln just said you hardly knew his name,” he said, “and they said don’t take him he’s got a drinking people.” “And Lincoln said I don’t care what problem he has, you guys aren’t winning,” Trump continued. “And his name...

    Ever since the notion of widening Interstate 95 and making it a toll road was chased out of town by an angry mob, there was a bewildering silence out there. What to do about “America’s Main Street”? How to fix the nation’s first major interstate highway, parts of which bear a worrisome resemblance to what old-times saw on Day 1? In fact, some of those ancient parts are right in our backyard, including the too-low overpasses in Harnett County that trap an over-height truck from time to time. Harnett also owns a few of those short exit ramps that make...

    The first large-scale, national study of transgender children, including some as young as 3, is poised to expand thanks to a five-year, $1 million grant awarded Thursday by the National Science Foundation to the professor leading the project. University of Washington psychologist Kristina Olson, 36, was named winner of the NSF’s annual Alan T. Waterman Award, the government’s highest honor for scientists still in the early phases of their careers. The NSF said the choice was unanimous, and noted that pediatricians are already using her findings to raise awareness about gender diversity.
