    House Democratic Whip Katherine Clark's non-binary child, who was arrested in an anti-cop protest over the weekend, was the one the Massachusetts congresswoman previously said had nightmares about "climate change." Clark’s middle child, Riley Dowell, was arrested Saturday evening for allegedly tagging a monument with anti-police slogans in spray paint and assaulting a law enforcement officer during the protest. The House Democratic whip in December recalled Dowell "waking up with nightmares" over climate change.

    The son of Democrat House Minority Whip Katherine M. Clark was reportedly arrested during an Antifa riot in Boston, Massachusetts after allegedly vandalizing personal property and charged with assaulting an officer while resisting arrest Saturday night. According to the Boston Police Department, at about 9:30 pm officers responded to a protest at the Parkman Bandstand Monument located in the Boston Common. "Upon arrival officers observed an individual defacing the monument with spray paint. The tagging read 'NO COP CITY' and 'ACAB,'" authorities stated. The phrases are commonly utilized by anti-police Antifa activists, including the ones rioting in the Atlanta "autonomous...

    What’s worse than being told that you have gonorrhea? How about being told that you are the first case in the U.S. of gonorrhea that has either no response or reduced response to five different classes of antibiotics? Yep, that’s what recently happened to not one but two people in Massachusetts, according to a January 19 announcement from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH). They were infected with a strain of Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria that’s even harder to treat, which is kind of like getting kicked in the groin and then falling forwards groin-first on to a bowling ball....

    The strain was found to resist five classes of antibiotics, a first in the U.S., according to the Massachusetts Dept. of Public Health (DPH). The two cases were ultimately cured with ceftriaxone, the lone remaining treatment recommended for gonorrhea. As of Thursday, officials said there was no known connection between the cases and that contact tracing was underway to see if there were any other infections. ... The novel strain has been seen in Asia-Pacific countries as well as the United Kingdom, but not in the U.S., according to the DPH. One case in Nevada had an infection that shared...

    WILBRAHAM, Mass. — For nearly a year and a half, a Massachusetts high school has been lit up around the clock because the district can’t turn off the roughly 7,000 lights in the sprawling building. The lighting system was installed at Minnechaug Regional High School when it was built over a decade ago and was intended to save money and energy. But ever since the software that runs it failed on Aug. 24, 2021, the lights in the Springfield suburbs school have been on continuously, costing taxpayers a small fortune. “We are very much aware this is costing taxpayers a...

    A San Francisco panel studying reparations has proposed a one-time payment of $5 million to each black resident of the city deemed eligible as recompense for the “decades of harm they have experienced,” according to a report on Monday. “A lump sum payment would compensate the affected population … and will redress the economic and opportunity losses that​ ​Black San Franciscans have endured, collectively, as the result of both intentional decisions and​ ​unintended harms perpetuated by City policy​,” the San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee said in a draft report issued last month, Fox News Digital reported. ​ The...

    San Francisco’s reparations committee has proposed paying each Black longtime resident $5 million and granting total debt forgiveness due to the decades of "systematic repression" faced by the local Black community. The San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee, which advises the city on developing a plan for reparations for Black residents, released its draft report last month to address reparations – not for slavery, since California was not technically a slave state, but "to address the public policies explicitly created to subjugate Black people in San Francisco by upholding and expanding the intent and legacy of chattel slavery." "While...

    Multiple House Democrats are reportedly pushing again for reparations and a national apology for slavery, according to Fox News. The group reintroduced legislation to create a commission whose members would address slavery in America, and one Democrat hopes the nation can deal with the issue, the outlet continued Thursday: Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, and 52 House Democrats proposed the legislation this week in an effort to keep the issue alive. Her legislation, which was considered by the House Judiciary Committee in the last Congress when Democrats were in charge, is unlikely to taken up in the 118th Congress led...

    When it comes to the absurdity of American taxpayers giving “reparations” to black descendants of slaves, it’s hard to limit the number of objections. Apart from the fact that American slavery, though horrific, was legal; that it ended 157 years ago; that the government did not own slaves, the private sector did; that most Southerners did not own slaves; that nearly all slave owners were Democrats — so why should non-Democrats pay?; that hundreds of thousands of white Northerners lost their lives and suffered serious injuries fighting in the Civil War that ended slavery; and that today, as conservative writer...

    The authorization of reparations creates a blackhole of never ending payments. If we consider reparations to black people (specifically descendants of African slaves) it opens the door for all descendants with real or imagined oppression. If we do the blacks, how about the descendants of Chinese that were imported and oppressed by the railroads and society in general. How about the descendants of Native Americans (Indians, First Peoples, etc.). Even if they were given horses, wheels, refrigeration, pickup trucks, jeans, cowboy hats and boots and Casinos, they were surely oppressed and their descendants deserve compensation. Then there were the Italians,...

    Yes, I said it and I mean it wholeheartedly. Every Black History month Blacks sing "We Shall Overcome" but if the Black community in America continues to accept and foolishly advocate for a slave mentality, that is what they shall get. The progressive socialist left, aka the Democrat party, has been highly successful in perpetuating a victim mentality for the black community. And in many ways, it has been the policies of the white socialist elitists of the left that have decimated and destroyed the black community. Over the centuries, it has been the Democrats who have brought forth the...

    Actor Faizon Love has lashed out at the notion that black people in California will be given $223,000 in reparations, saying that the money will only be used to purchase luxury cars. Love, 54, made the eye-opening response in an interview with YouTube channel Vlad TV as the debate over reparations for slavery in the Golden State continues. The Meteor Man star said: 'F*** that. That's another trick man, because that money's gonna go right back to Cadillac and right back to [Mercedes] Benz.' The chair of the task force handling the reparations issue, Kamilah V.

    Looking beyond the abuses of enslavement, California’s Reparations Task Force this week dug into racist state policies of the 20th Century as it worked to quantify harms committed against Black communities. The committee has already recommended that California provide financial reparations to descendants of enslaved people and Black Californians who can trace their ancestry in the state to the 19th Century. Now it’s working on other questions, such as how to compensate people for unjust property takings by eminent domain, devaluation of Black businesses, housing discrimination and homelessness, over-policing and the disproportionate mass incarceration of Black people, and health harms....

    An activist and political candidate warned a California state committee on reparations for slavery this week that there will be a “serious backlash” unless the state agrees to pay $800,000 to every eligible recipient. Deon D. Jenkins, a self-described “grassroots hip hop organizer for reparations,” testified at a hearing in Oakland (via the UK Daily Mail) that $800,000 was the appropriate amount, given the average home price in the state. He then warned that unless the panel complied with his recommendations, there would be repercussions.

    Max Fennell, a 35-year-old businessman and former professional triathlete, told the committee the money should be given to all black California residents. He argued that black-owned businesses should receive grants of about $250,000 and 15-20 acres of land to help further boost black wealth during the Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals' public hearing. "It's a debt that's owed, we worked for free ... we're not asking; we're telling you," he told the panel, the Daily Mail reported.

    BOSTON (AP) — The Boston City Council voted Wednesday to form a task force to study how it can provide reparations for and other forms of atonement to Black Bostonians for the city’s role in slavery and its legacy of inequality. The unanimous vote means Boston now joins a conversation about reparations that is happening across the country from Providence, Rhode Island to California. Boston will be closely watched given its troubled racial history, including its role in supporting and financing slavery even after Massachusetts abolished the practice in 1780. Supporters of reparations cited its history of segregated housing as...
