    The Secret Service blamed local police for failing to secure the rooftop from which gunman Thomas Matthew Crooks attempted to assassinate former President Donald Trump, insisting it was outside of the perimeter the federal agency was tasked with protecting. Instead, securing and patrolling the factory grounds of AGR International Inc. — located about 130 yards from the stage where Trump was speaking Saturday — was the responsibility of local Pennsylvania police, Secret Service representative Anthony Gugliemi said, according the New York Times. The Secret Service was only tasked with covering the grounds where Trump’s rally took place, with local police...

    Florida Satanists are volunteering to fill school counselor roles after Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed a law allowing religious chaplains into public schools amid staffing shortages. “Nothing in the text of the bill serves to exclude us, and no credible interpretation of the First Amendment could. Should a school district now choose to have chaplains, they should expect Satanists to participate as well,” Lucien Greaves, cofounder and spokesperson for The Satanic Temple, said in a statement... Back when DeSantis signed the bill in April, he described Satanism as “not a religion” and said its members would not be allowed to...
  • That mouth-watering aroma of fresh food cooking? It may be degrading air quality

    It's been known for years that cooking indoors can taint the air in a home and cause health problems, especially when cooking without proper ventilation. But a new study found that emissions from cooking may degrade the air quality outdoors as well. "If you can smell it, there’s a good chance it’s impacting air quality," researchers with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Chemical Sciences Laboratory recently wrote about a new study looking at the "unrecognized and underappreciated sources of urban air pollution."

  • The Louisiana GOP Has Total Control Over State Government, Plans to Immediately Cave to Democrats

    In the 2023 election cycle in Louisiana, conservatives let their voices be heard. It wasn't just a Republican wave in the state last year - it was a decidedly conservative wave. Moderate (read: really Democrat) Republicans were thrashed just as much as actual Democrats were. SNIP>>>>> But Republicans in Louisiana can be their own worst enemy when it comes to governance. Even while Republicans had majorities in both chambers of the legislature during Edwards' term, they could rarely agree on leadership and committee assignments, and on more than one occasion, Republican leaders picked Democrats to chair committees in the House...

    The massive political network founded by the Koch brothers endorsed GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley on Tuesday, giving her a potential boost in her increasingly competitive primary battle against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and front-runner Donald Trump. The network, Americans for Prosperity Action, could be a vehicle for bolstering Haley’s ground game in the months leading up to voting in Iowa and New Hampshire, where the former UN ambassador has been building her presence. The Koch network has already spent millions of dollars attacking Trump in the Republican primary battle, and this endorsement marks its decision on who would be...

    One of Europe’s leading globalists will leave office and his hoped-for replacement, a Green-Left veteran Eurocrat has been soundly defeated in the Dutch elections, triggering an outpouring of grief as veteran anti-Islamification campaigner Geert Wilders soars into first place. With 99 per cent of votes counted from Wednesday’s national elections in the Netherlands, Geert Wilders’ Party for Freedom (PVV) is confirmed the largest political force in the country by a considerable margin. More than doubling the number of seats taken since the next election, Wilders even exceeded the highest polls to take 37 seats in the Netherlands’ 150-seat parliament.

    Palestinian flags and poster boards were being held high in downtown Sarasota as dozens of protestors called for an end to the bombings in Gaza. “They’re just innocent people. They are regular people. They want to live,” says protester Nissrine Tarik. She describes Israel’s retaliation for Hama’s October 7th attack as barbaric. “We wouldn’t even want this to happen to animals. Let alone people. These are human beings,” she says. According to the Associated Press, 1,400 people have been killed in Israel, while the Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza says the Palestinian death toll has climbed to over 9,000. Tarik...
  • Macgregor: We need to protect Israel from itself. Tell them: 'No'

    @DougAMacgregor You have a understandable and justified interest from Israel to Destroy Hamas. However, I think the current plan will provoke an enormous reaction from the Muslim world. Pretty much everyone from Indonesia to Morocco is going to be extremely upset and I think we will see the front against Israel in the region coalesce into a real Military alliance against Israel. We need to protect Israel from itself. The problem is, it takes a President who has the authority and strength to tell the Israeli Government no, you can not go into Gaza and execute the plans you have.

During their meeting in Qatar's capital Doha, Iranian foreign minister Hossein Amirabdollahian praised the rampage as a "historic victory" that had dealt a setback to Israel's occupation of Palestinian territory.

    Mandatory wearing of masks in hospitals and skilled nursing facilities in Marin County will return in November to curb an anticipated spread of respiratory diseases, including COVID-19, according to county officials. The masking requirement will take effect from Nov. 1 through March 31, 2024, Marin Health and Human Services officials said Wednesday.

Children below the age of 6 and those with valid medical reasons are exempted from the mandate, county officials said. Under...

    Right after Joe Biden’s election victory in 2020, former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman got a phone call. Whitman, a Republican, had endorsed Biden in the race against then-President Donald Trump. Now, the caller said, Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris wanted her cell number. No one ever called. Whitman was part of a cohort of prominent Republicans who broke with the party in 2020. Fed up with Trump, they gravitated to Biden’s campaign thinking he would be a unifying figure. Former Rep. Christopher Shays, a Republican from Connecticut, endorsed Biden in 2020 but says he is now...

    After the city council approved a multi-million dollar migrant aid package, outraged Chicago residents raised their concerns and frustrations at a meeting earlier this week. One of those residents joined "Fox & Friends Weekend" to amplify the concerns of his Chicago neighbors and offer other areas where the $51 million could be spent. "It's just a mess here," Chicago resident Andre Smith said. "We have in Chicago $160 million that was spent for the migrants with no records, no plan. And now we're fixing to spend $51 million that was passed at city council with no record, no plan for...
