    Esparto High School near Sacramento confirmed it canceled a game after it said six players tested positive for COVID-19. Two California high schools have confirmed that they canceled football games because of COVID-19 cases among students.

It also stated that multiple players were also injured and that it didn't have enough players for a game. This comes as there have been concerns that virus-related rules might be reimplemented in the coming months. ... Hundreds of miles away, a high...

    National Public Radio was in a frenzy the other morning but it felt like the movie Groundhog Day: they were spreading tremendous alarm about the rise of Covid cases. We have to stop the spread, the announcer said, and that’s why masks are coming back to classrooms. However, they added, relief is on the way in the form of a new vaccine. Rinse, repeat — as the shampoo bottles say. This line of thinking — stop the spread to reduce strain on hospitals, mask up, and so on — is being echoed by all major media organs. Leading the way...

    In 1590, in Scotland, an elderly woman named Agnes Sampson was arrested. She was from East Lothian. Earlier in her life she had been a midwife and a healer, but lately she had been living in poverty. She was tried, found guilty and taken to Edinburgh Castle where, on 28 January 1591, she was strangled to death by rope and then burnt at the stake. Her offence? Climate change.

    Make electricity unreliable and unaffordable and you’ll soon turn your economy to ashes. Australia is on the brink of a major recession, and energy costs are front and centre. Power prices will jump by 25 to 30% next month following the closure of yet another perfectly operable 2,000MW coal-fired power plant. Since the Federal Government’s Renewable Energy Target was ramped up by the Labor government in 2010, Australians have been hit with double-digit percentage increases in their power bills every year since. Households are being hammered by rising interest rates and power bills that they simply cannot afford. Then there...

    For the past half-century or more, manufactured scares have been a recurrent part of life. Every year a very small number of people are killed (usually only 1) or injured by bears here in Hokkaido, Japan. However, the news media invariably plays up these incidents. As a result, for a few weeks every year some hiking trails in Sapporo are ritually closed off to the public after some bear sightings. Many people I know have a great fear of bears, though the actual risk of being killed by a bear is extremely small. Their chances of dying in a bathtub...

    28 Feb 2023 Be aware that both the Jan 2023 and Feb 2023 Antarctic Sea Ice Extents have set new record lows for Sea Ice Extents. Each day in January was lower than all previous years sea ice extents, and (now) February's Antarctic Sea Ice Extents have been released. They too were lower than all previous years of the satellite record period (1978-2023.) The NCIDC Sea Ice publicists will certainly report this event. But. What the NSIDC and other Global Warming publicity boards will NOT mention is the ever-increasing, all time record-breaking HIGH Sea Ice trend around Antarctica from 1992...

    The UN secretary-general said that nuclear war is "back within the realm of possibility" following Russia's warning earlier this year it was putting its nuclear forces on alert amid its war in Ukraine, which threatens to draw NATO into direct combat with Russia. Since then, nuclear threats have continued to raise concerns a nuclear weapon could be used in a conflict for the first time in decades.

    Lady Susan Hussey repeatedly asked about Ngozi Fulani's background at the event, asking where in Africa she came from, leaving Ms Fulani feeling insulted as she explained she is British. Lady Susan, who was a member of the Buckingham Palace household, resigned and apologised over "unacceptable and regrettable comments" made at a reception held by the Queen Consort. Ms Fulani, CEO of Hackney charity Sistah Space, a group that supports African and Caribbean women affected by domestic and sexual abuse, said she had suffered "trauma" and "damage" after being "invited and then insulted" at the event. And speaking to LBC...

    Policymakers across the world banned choral singing during the COVID-19 pandemic after taking wrongful interpretations of a high-profile outbreak as facts, a new study suggests. The study, set to be published in Public Health, a British journal, revisits what was widely reported as a “super-spreader event” in March 2020 at Skagit County in northwest Washington State. Among 61 Skagit Valley Chorale members who attended the March 10 rehearsal at a local church, 53 were diagnosed with COVID-19 within a few weeks, including two who died. In a report that had since been used by governments across the world to justify...

    It has been said before, by many people, that there are four boxes in politics: The Soap Box (or expressing yourself), the Ballot Box (voting), the Jury Box (legal challenges to bad voting or speech suppression), and the Cartridge Box (the use of firearms). The Soap Box has been squelched by an unholy alliance between government and social media (and search engines), although Elon Musk may rescue Twitter. So, the Soap Box is mostly gone. The Ballot Box has been diminished, almost to the point that it doesn't even matter any more. This has been done through a combination of...

    Construction at the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago has been temporarily halted after a noose was discovered at the worksite Thursday morning. Lakeside Alliance, the construction company building the $830 million center, said it immediately notified police after the noose was reported on the premises, located in Jackson Park. The company told The Post in a statement that it suspended “all operations onsite” in order to provide its employees with an additional series of anti bias training, citing a “zero tolerance” policy “for any form of bias or hate on our worksite.” The company additionally said it was offering a...

    The only explanation for the mandate is that it was implemented to deter right-leaning poll workers from overseeing election procedures. ... The city of Madison is requiring that election inspectors and poll workers “Provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19, proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, or obtain a medical or religious exemption in advance of working the polls.” Mark Jefferson, the executive director of the Wisconsin Republican Party, told The Federalist that Madison originally had a blanket Covid mandate with no exceptions at the start of this year. However, after the Republican Party began pursuing legal recourse,...

    This morning I was in the process of uploading a video I created about making the GREATEST Margarita in the world. However, I noticed there was no monetization button. When I checked further I noticed my entire channel had been demonetized (again). On top of that there was NO explanation from YouTube for the demonetization either on the dashboard or via email which always happened when they demonetized before. I checked on Twitter and it turns out that many other video creators had the same experience. For what I can piece together is that YouTube only meant to demonetize all...

    For seven weeks, Harry Dunn sat in the same seat before the House Select Committee on the Jan. 6 Attack. Cameras pointed in his direction snapped photos of his every reaction as details of the insurrection were shared with the public. Dunn looked on, not paying the photographers any mind. He was there for one reason: to hear the truth. Dunn, who is Black, was thrown into the spotlight in the weeks following the attack. The Capitol Police officer’s testimony before Congress detailed the horrors he faced on Jan. 6, 2021, from facing down the mob’s deluge of racial hatred...
  • The Basic Math Problem that Undoes Global Warming Hysteria: If the climate alarmists truly believe there is a climate emergency, then they should be able to solve this one

    American Thinker ^ | 08/15/2022 | Maker S. Mark
    If someone proposes a solution to an "existential problem" that has no chance of success, should we be forced to take the problem seriously? If the climate alarmists truly believe there is a climate emergency, then they should be able to answer the first basic question about "the plan." Are the numbers in the plan even remotely achievable? Remember: based on their screeching, we have only twelve years before we all die from "man-made climate change." To answer that question, let's break part of the plan into the most basic math problem: can we replace 25%, 50%, or 75% of...

    The left has tried every trick in their “global warming” bible to convince the majority of Americans that climate change is not only real, but it’s also urgent. Or, as Special Presidential Envoy for Climate [ROFL emoji] John Kerry and other “climate change” loons love to say, with great drama: the existential threat of mankind.Considering that “existential” refers to existence (hence, the very existence or extinction of mankind), climate change loons like world-renowned climatologist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who has literally said, “The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change” — continue to...

    Baltimore Health Commissioner discusses distributing monkeypox vaccines. Unbelievable. Check out ESPECIALLY at c. 5:40 mark, where she starts about the “truly marginalized” and puts CLASSIC spin on LGBTQ weirdoes being most likely to get this disease! Her descriptions are even pretty sick - basically condoning really immoral behavior, like “transactional sex” that they “rely on”.

    It's pearl clutching time for the Climate Drama Queens. Seeing the coming electoral bloodbath on the horizon (assuming we actually have an election) the CDQ's have ramped up the hyperbole over the ostensible climate change. Three years ago, AOC told us that there are only 9 years left to the planet but things are getting worse! To wit: Climate change is no longer just about the future that we're trying to protect for our children or our grandchildren; it's about the reality we're living with now. That’s why it’s more urgent now than ever before that Congress pass @POTUS’ climate...
