    OAKVILLE, Mo. (KTVI) – Parents are demanding action from administrators at a Missouri high school after a senior wore a Confederate flag face mask to school. One parent said the student showed up at Oakville High School wearing the Confederate flag mask and was allowed to continue through his school day.“So what type of message are you sending to my child by allowing another child to sit in the classroom with this mask on,” asked Tamica Harding.

    The lawsuit goes on to say that during a meeting with the school’s principal, Jeannie Steenberge, and a faculty member, the two adults allowed the black students to berate and scream at their daughter, calling her “the biggest known racist in the school,” and accusing her of being “in love with Trump” because she owned Trump decals and other merchandise. “Everyone knows ALL Trump supporters are racist,” the petition claims one black student said. During another meeting, the parents’ petition says the principal told their daughter she was a racist, and that “we are all racists, we are white.” According...

    A pro-life group is reporting that Missouri has become the first “abortion-free state” in the U.S. after its last remaining abortion facility ceased terminating pregnancies. Operation Rescue released a report outlining “The Status of American Abortion Facilities in 2020” last week. According to the report, “a total of 45 abortion facilities closed or halted abortions nationwide in 2020, leaving one state without an active abortion facility.” “Reproductive Health Services Planned Parenthood in St. Louis was the last abortion facility in Missouri. It remains open, but Operation Rescue has confirmed that no abortion appointments have been available there for months, and...

    Lisa Montgomery, a convicted killer who strangled a pregnant woman and then cut the unborn baby from her womb, was executed in a federal prison in Indiana early Wednesday. She was the first woman executed in the federal system in nearly seven decades. Montgomery was convicted of strangling a Missouri woman who was eight months pregnant in 2004 and taking the unborn baby, who survived. The 52-year-old woman was pronounced dead at 1:31 a.m. Wednesday after receiving a lethal injection at the federal prison complex in Terre Haute, Indiana, the Federal Bureau of Prisons said.
  • Sen. Hawley challenges Sen. Toomey to a debate on the Senate floor

    January 2, 2020 Sen. Josh Hawley (MO-R) fired back after Sen. Pat Toomey (PA-R) and others raise concerns about his plans — along with at least 11 other GOP senators — to object to the electoral vote count when a joint session of Congress meets Jan. 6, per email sent to Senate GOP Conference tonight. Hawley told Toomey that instead of debating the issue by press release, Toomey should perhaps debate him on the Senate floor. Read full statement:

    Larry Schweikart: 1) Just finished a discussion with a pro-Trump congressional source on procedures. Very high. 2) On Jan. 6, all that is needed is 1 senator (Hawley) and 1 Congressman (Brooks) to bring an objection to an elector slate (almost certainly AZ, since that will be the first contested. 3) The rules are made by the previous congress; the laws already in place bind the procedures. 4) Pence has no authority on his own to accept or reject any slate. According to source, he will turn to the Parliamentarian for a ruling on how to proceed.

    Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) broke the internet when he announced that he would be objecting to certification of the Electoral College results Jan. 6. He also broke one of America’s leading retailers. Walmart attacked him for it in a quickly deleted tweet that read, “Go ahead. Get your 2 hour debate. #soreloser.” Hawley was ready for them, and his response was brutal. In a follow-up tweet, Hawley went for the critical blow: "Thanks ⁦@Walmart⁩ for your insulting condescension. Now that you’ve insulted 75 million Americans, will you at least apologize for using slave labor?” Hawley didn’t let up, and proceeded...

    A simple strand of thread connects an honorable past to a bright future. Connie Swartz, of Kansas City, Missouri, recently founded Celebrate Fatigues to turn unused military uniforms – hidden in basements and closets – into usable products to pay tribute to the nation's veterans and active service members. "My idea was, 'Let's resurrect these and make things out of them that people can enjoy and also feel that they're showing honor in remembering to the people who wore them,'" Swartz said. From sleeves and pants come purses and backpacks, dog scarfs and scrunchies – even face masks and luggage...

    A Cole County man was one of five people in the state selected for Missouri's first elk season in modern history. The five randomly selected hunters from all corners of the state were given the opportunity to hunt elk beginning this October. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) randomly selected the few lucky winners from a pool of 19,215 permit applications including 33 for one resident-landowner antlered-elk permit and 19,182 for four general permits.

    Thus far in Florida, approximately 20,000 people have died of COVID-19. In Texas, the number stands around 24,000, and in New York, about 35,000.New York is the smallest of the three, with 19.54 million residents. Then comes Florida, with 21.67 million, before Texas, with 28.7 million residents.COVID numbers are difficult to trust. Cases are often counted more than once as patients go in and out of the hospital, and some deaths are attributed to COVID that are barely related, if at all.There’s a perverse incentive to write down “COVID” and get state and federal money, no doubt, but one thing...

    A judge on Thursday disqualified the St. Louis prosecutor and her office from the case involving Mark McCloskey, who along with his wife pointed guns at racial injustice protesters marching on the private street near their home in June. Circuit Judge Thomas Clark II dismissed Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, citing two campaign fundraising emails around the time she filed felony gun charges against the couple in July. “In short, the Circuit Attorney’s conduct raises the appearance that she initiated a criminal prosecution for political purposes,” Clark wrote. The order applies only to Mark McCloskey and not his wife, Patricia, who...

    Eric Schmitt, the attorney general from Missouri, announced on Twitter late Tuesday that his state is “in the fight” after Texas announced its election challenge that would invalidate the 62 Electoral College votes from four battleground states and award President Trump with a second term. “Election integrity is central to our republic,” Schmitt, a Republican, tweeted. “And I will defend it at every turn. As I have in other cases—I will help lead the effort in support of Texas’ #SCOTUS filing today. Missouri is in the fight.” Schmitt’s tweet came shortly after Ken Paxton, the attorney general from Texas, explained...

    Professional discussion of the harms and benefits of masks and mask mandates cannot even happen privately among doctors without vitriol. This kind of atmosphere kills science.My 18-year-old son, who has Down Syndrome, had a dental procedure last week. We were supposed to have it done in March, but due to the cancellation of outpatient procedures, it was postponed until then. His teeth needed major cleaning, and since he has a ton of oral sensory issues, sedation has become necessary. All went well, thankfully. However, that night the dentist called and talked with my husband, who is an urgent care physician,...

    ST. LOUIS — October became the deadliest month for Missouri in the coronavirus pandemic as fatalities statewide rose to 618 for the month, surpassing September, with the toll still likely to climb. At the same time Wednesday, Missouri reported another grim record: The state’s seven-day total hospitalization average rose to 1,604, marking the first time that number has surpassed 1,600. Missouri hospitalization data lags three days, and not every hospital reports every day.

    ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – St. Louis County leaders said the latest COVID data is concerning. St. Louis Metro Pandemic Task Force leader Dr. Alex Garza said they are seeing a high number of occupied hospital beds with about 90 percent of healthcare beds full in the SSM Health system. The numbers were slightly lower in metro hospitals at 85 percent. “Speaking with our task force hospitals yesterday that same sort of level was echoed across all the hospitals from St. Luke’s to Mercy to BJC,” Dr. Garza said. “We normally don’t operate at that high of a level.” However,...

    It’s been just over a month since I last updated Missouri’s COVID numbers here — and it’s been an erratic one at that. There was the single-day gargantuan leap in reported tests (from September 30 to October 1, Missouri reported (per Worldometers) an increase in tests of — get this — 564,236!) followed by the four days last week when the DHSS website/COVID dashboard was down due to a “database extraction error“. The headlines from the Post Dispatch (and other local news sources) of late have been all about how we’re hitting record-high numbers of new cases and hospitalizations and...

    A broad coalition of lawmakers, public interest groups, and grassroots citizens rallied behind Amy Coney Barrett in her first day of hearings today for confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. According to senators on the Judiciary Committee evaluating her nomination, Barrett handled the first day of hearings with grace, humility, and tenacity. “[Barrett] acknowledged the fact that so much of what the Democrats said today was bunk, and she did it with a smile, and she did it without having to use the word jackwagon or anything close to it,” Sen. Mike Lee of Utah said. “She did it by...
