A 21st birthday party was taking place at a residence there which suddenly turned deadly, Mallery said.

    Mass immigration, both illegal and legal, is dramatically “reshaping the American South” more than any other region of the United States, research from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The analysis, conducted by Steven Camarota, looks at the expansive growth of the nation’s foreign-born population, which has reached an unprecedented 51.6 million — the largest ever in American history. “Immigration policy is reshaping the American South more than any other part of the country,” Camarota writes.

    Biden officials have back down in the face of multiple lawsuits after the National Park Service denied, for the second year in a row, the Knights of Columbus’ request to host a Memorial Day Mass inside a national cemetery. The Knights have hosted the annual Memorial Day Mass inside Poplar Grove National Cemetery in Petersburg, Virginia since the 1960’s. On May 21, First Liberty Institute and McGuireWoods LLP filed a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against National Park Service, so that the Knights can continue on with hosting their annual Memorial Day Mass at the Cemetery....

    Tens of thousands of Americans have been made redundant at large companies this year. according to Warn Tracker, a website that tracks upcoming layoffs based on WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988) notices. The WARN Act mandates that employers conducting large-scale layoffs or closures notify employees as well as state government officials of job losses at least 60 days in advance. WARN notices must be served by companies that have 100 or more full-time employees or 100 or more employees who, in aggregate, work at least 4,000 hours per week, excluding overtime.

    On September 11, 2001, Muslim terrorists attacked the Twin Towers and the Pentagon and would have attacked Congress were it not for the brave people on United Flight 93. They immediately killed 2,977 people, with untold others dying later from injuries, such as lung ailments and cancer. For one brief moment, Americans understood that Islam was engaged in an existential war against the West. That’s a war that began in the early Middle Ages and has continued in fits and starts since then. The latest hot front in that war is Israel, but make no mistake: This is a global...

    At least seven children between the ages of 12 and 17 were wounded in a mass shooting in busy downtown Indianapolis late Saturday night. Officers were on patrol just after 11 p.m. when they heard gunshots near the Circle Centre Mall, a shopping plaza downtown, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department told Fox 59. After rushing to the area of West Maryland Street, officers located a “large group of juveniles,” including six with gunshot wounds, Police Deputy Chief Tanya Terry said during a Sunday morning news conference, according to CNN.
  • Presidents Day: 5 Presidents Who Warned Against Mass Immigration

    While presidents have long had disagreements on national policy, many agreed that unchecked immigration to the United States ultimately hurts Americans and those legal immigrants who have already arrived. Five presidents, in particular, have famously warned against mass immigration to the United States — despite their differences on a variety of other issues. In the early 1920s, President Calvin Coolidge (R) drastically reduced annual legal immigration levels to the United States, stabilizing the nation’s population following decades of record-high immigration. Coolidge, in a December 1923 address, said immigration levels must not exceed the ability of Americans to absorb new arrivals...

    President Joe Biden (D) claimed on Thursday that there had been more mass shootings in 2024 “than days in the year.” Biden posted his claim on X: We’ve now had more mass shootings in 2024 than there have been days in the year. It’s unacceptable. We must end this senseless epidemic of gun violence tearing us at the seams. — Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) February 15, 2024 He offered no substantiation of his claim, no reference to where he found evidence of “more mass shootings … than there have been days in the year.” Biden made a similar assertion on May...

    [Catholic/Orthodox Caucus] Francis speaks to the Liturgy Dicastery about liturgical reform - by Michael CharlierThis week, the Roman liturgical authority held its annual plenary assembly, which was held under the theme "Liturgical formation from Sacrosanctum Concilium to Desiderio desideravi". Concrete decisions have not yet been made public. But we have learned of a speech that Francis gave to the participants on Thursday, February 8, which provides some insight into the pontiff's understanding of the liturgy. The source of all the reports is an article written by CNA's Roman correspondent Matthew Santucci, from which we also take our quotes from the...

    UVALDE, Texas (AP) — Police officials who responded to the deadly Uvalde, Texas, elementary school shooting waited far too long to confront the gunman, acted with “no urgency” in establishing a command post and repeatedly communicated inaccurate information to grieving families, according to a Justice Department report released Thursday that identifies “cascading failures” in law enforcement’s handling of the massacre. The Justice Department report, the most comprehensive federal accounting of the maligned police response to the May 24, 2022, shooting at Robb Elementary School, catalogs a sweeping array of training, communication, leadership and technology problems that federal officials say contributed...

    There have been more mass shootings with four or more deaths in 2023 than in any year since at least 2006, according to gun violence data. There have been 38 mass killings this year, up from last year’s previous high of 36, The Washington Post’s gun violence database shows. A pair of shootings in Dallas and Vancouver, Wash., on Sunday broke the record and pushed the number of deaths in such shootings to 197 — excluding the gunmen. Mass killings have been on the rise in recent years, especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. There were 21 mass...

    Skeletal muscle plays an extremely important role in supporting movement and energy metabolism. However, its function can be impaired by aging and muscle-related diseases, resulting in decreased endurance or strength of skeletal muscle. Skeletal muscle function decreases with the increase of age or the development of disease. After the age of 30, muscle mass decreases by about 3%–8% every decade. Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), a common muscular dystrophy in children, causes proximal muscle weakness and calf hypertrophy, eventually leading to degeneration of skeletal and cardiac muscle. Therefore, healthy skeletal muscle is very important to the body. However, skeletal muscle is...

    Author Stephen King railed against gun violence in the wake of Wednesday’s mass shooting in Maine, calling for people to “stop electing apologists for murder.” “It’s the rapid-fire killing machines, people,” King wrote in a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “This is madness in the name of freedom. Stop electing apologists for murder.” At least 16 people were killed in Lewiston, Maine, on Wednesday in a mass shooting incident at two locations. Local authorities said the suspect remains at large and residents were instructed to shelter in place. Firearms instructor Robert Card, 40, has been named...

However, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) confirmed the event on Wednesday. The Los Angeles Times reported: The Gucci store at a mall in Century City was robbed Monday by a large group of thieves, in a grab-and-dash heist...

    A gunman wearing a helmet and carrying an “AR-15 style rifle” was caught on camera at the entrance of an upscale Las Vegas apartment complex before an armed employee of the building opened fire and stopped him in his tracks. Questions on how the incident played out remained unanswered for days as media coverage was minimal despite the worker having foiled what appeared to be a mass shooting attempt, Heritage Foundation senior legal fellow Amy Swearer claimed.

    Forbes pointed to misleading data and claimed on Monday there had been over 330 “mass shootings” in the United States so far in 2023. They labeled their report “breaking” news. Writing at Forbes, Ana Faguy relied on the Gun Violence Archive (GVA), a pro-gun-control database which abandoned the long-standing definition of a “mass shooting” as four or more deaths in a single incident by a single gunman and replaced it with “a minimum of four victims shot, either injured or killed, not including any shooter who may also have been killed or injured in the incident.” GVA’s new definition allows...

    In the world of all things wonderful and green, the biggest push has been to hasten the demise of the internal combustion engine and the chirpiest assessments have been how EVs will save the planet. From California to New York state to the federal government and internationally, the powers that be have been on a tear to declare the ICE deadly and obsolete, while the EV in all its incarnations is the future. Perhaps the bloom is coming off of that overly optimistic and premature rose. Some EV business models aren’t motoring along as well as previously anticipated, even with...

The Church of St. Paul the Apostle said in a Wednesday email to parishioners that the National Parks Service informed it that the Stonewall National Monument, which commemorates a June 1969 LGBT uprising against a police raid, “will not be open to the public tomorrow due to concerns over the security of...
