    An animator who created the critically acclaimed horror survival video game Five Nights at Freddy's in 2014 has refused to apologize for his donations to conservative politicians, including former President Donald Trump. Scott Cawthon, 43, from Houston, Texas, trended on Twitter after people searched for the animator on public political contributions website Open Secrets and discovered that he had donated to Trump and Senate Minority Leader and veteran Republican Mitch McConnell. … Although he stayed publicly silent on the controversy for a number of days, Cawthon posted to the Five Nights at Freddy's Reddit on Saturday in a statement titled,...
  • In the Wake of the Ceasefire, Don't Forget: Israel Is the Aggressor | Opinion

    After nearly two weeks of violence between Israeli forces and Hamas militants in Gaza, a ceasefire agreement has finally been reached. But the duration of the ceasefire remains questionable, especially given that the grievances that led up to the most recent conflict persist, and without addressing them, it's only a matter of time before the next wave of violence begins.

    Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer appear to be at odds with a vocal segment of the Democratic Party that has criticized Israel's actions toward the Palestinians amid the region's escalating conflict. According to the Associated Press, more than 120 Palestinians have been killed—including 31 children and 20 women. An additional 900 have been injured. "My expectation and hope is this will be closing down sooner than later," Biden said . "Israel has a right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory." Pelosi issued a similar statement on Tuesday. "I condemn the escalating...

    Paul: Instead, government authorities, self-interested in continuing gain-of-function research, say there's nothing to see here. There may be some truth to the assertion of self-interest. The international community of virologists is relatively small, and they tend to know one another. Peter Daszak, head of EcoHealth Alliance, which has been the main conduit for NIH research funds on coronaviruses to the Wuhan lab in China, and has worked closely with scientists in China, has been criticized for having a conflict of interest in his role as a member of the World Health Organization team that investigated the origins of SARS-CoV-2.

    ===== I'm now a major in the Marine Corps Reserve and a member of a formerly all-male infantry battalion.* This past weekend we had our monthly drill period. A few days before drill, the command told us that all scheduled training on Sunday morning was canceled and replaced with a "stand-down to address extremism in the ranks." It was left-wing political programming, as direct as it sounds. We were instructed that there is a Taliban-like threat in the United States called "domestic terrorism." These terrorists are characterized in part by "anti-government," "anti-authority" or "abortion-related" extremism and various "supremacist" ideas. None...

    The Spanish firm Grifols helped set off a kerfuffle last year when it, along with other firms, offered nearly double the going price for blood donations for a COVID-19 treatment trial. Brigham Young University in Idaho had to threaten some enterprising students with suspension to keep them from intentionally trying to contract COVID-19. The trial failed, however, and now the Barcelona-based firm is hoping to extract something far more valuable from the plasma of young volunteers: a set of microscopic molecules that could reverse the process of aging itself. Earlier this year, Grifols closed on a $146 million-deal to buy...
  • Charles Barkley Says Politicians 'Divide' Black, White and Rich, Poor America

    Charles Barkley has blamed politicians for dividing Americans and criticized both Republicans and Democrats exacerbating problems between white and Black people in the U.S. The former NBA star, who is now a sports analyst with TNT, made the remarks on Saturday before a Final Four game between Baylor and Houston. He appears to have been responding to footage of Robert F. Kennedy announcing the news of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination in 1968. Kennedy, who was also assassinated later that year, spoke movingly about King's death in famous remarks delivered in Indianapolis, which is the location of the 2021...

    It's time for news stations to do the responsible thing and stop putting Anthony Fauci on TV. Fauci is the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and advisor to presidents, including President Biden. Few dispute his qualifications. But a year into this pandemic, it's clear that his presence has been a muddling one for the country. For starters, there are the mistakes. There have been many. And they've been disastrous.

    MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has urged "criminals" involved in a massive voter fraud conspiracy to contact him for help in arranging reduced prison sentences. Lindell, a proponent of the baseless theory that the 2020 presidential was "stolen" from former President Donald Trump, made the remarks during an appearance on The Charlie Kirk Show podcast that was released on Friday. Lindell promised that a flood of evidence validating the theory would soon emerge, while offering to help cut deals similar to "the old mafia days" for those involved in the purported plot. "There will be a big surprise of evidence," Lindell...

    Buffalo Public Schools (BPS) in Erie County, New York, found itself the subject of national headlines this week for its work incorporating anti-racist principles into its curriculum. ...The curriculum has received pushback from the right along with accusations that its teachings are "anti-white" and inappropriate for school... ...Dr. Fatima Morrell, BPS' associate superintendent for Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Initiatives, led the charge for the incorporation of BLM-based curricula for grades K-12 for the 2020-2021 school year. It is derived from the organization Black Lives Matter at School, an educator-driven movement advocating for racial justice in education. Its guiding principles include...

    National Review covered Salon’s hit piece on Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK), which tried to accuse him of lying about his military record. But there’s a small part in the National Review article that should drive everyone mad. At Salon, Roger Sollenberger claimed that completing Ranger School does not make one an actual Ranger. He also insisted that the military agrees with him. I emphasized the important part: In his first run for Congress, Cotton leaned heavily on his military service, claiming to have been “a U.S. Army Ranger in Iraq and Afghanistan,” and, in a campaign ad, to have “volunteered...

    A top food chain CEO bashing socialism should be news, just not to the ironically named liberal outlet Newsweek. Whole Foods co-founder and CEO John Mackey said on Friday that “Socialism has been tried 42 times in the last 100 years and 42 failures ... We have to keep capitalism, I would argue, we need conscious capitalism," according to Newsweek. Instead of just reporting his comments, Newsweek then tried to editorialize and take a shot at his argument: “It's not exactly clear what attempts at socialism Mackey was referring to. Several countries that adopted authoritarian Communism are now free-market economies,...

    China's economy is leading the charge for a global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, overshadowing the United States which continues to reel from a rising number of COVID-19 cases. The world's second-largest economy grew 4.9 percent between July and September compared to the same quarter last year, according to government data. But economists had expected growth of 5.2 percent. During the first quarter of the year, China's economy shrank by 6.8 percent as the pandemic closed factories and manufacturing plants. It was China's first economic contraction since the recording of quarterly GDP data began in 1992. Yi Gang, China's central...

  • Why Won't Joe Biden Repudiate Anti-Semitic Democrats? | Opinion

    Newsweek ^ | 10/14/20 | Bruce Abramson and Jeff Ballabon
    At the first debate, Joe Biden took ownership of today's Democrats with an uncharacteristically clear proclamation: "I am the Democratic Party." With that, Biden assumed responsibility for repudiating and distancing himself from the anti-Semitism surging through his party's ranks. Anti-Semitism has been on full display among Democratic leaders and left-wing protest groups alike in recent years. Leaders of the Women's March, for example, proved so undeniably anti-Semitic that even former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz felt compelled to distance herself. Yet those same anti-Semites—Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory—were featured speakers at this summer's Democratic convention. The Women's March since recruited new...

    Senator Tina Smith (D-Minn.) is in a statistical dead heat with her GOP challenger Jason Lewis less than two weeks before Election Day, according to a new poll. A SurveyUSA poll released Wednesday shows Smith leading Lewis, a former congressman whose candidacy has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, by only 1 percent. It found that 43 percent of voters favored Smith compared to 42 percent for Lewis. Another 12 percent said they were undecided, while 3 percent said they would vote for a third party candidate. Smith's lead is well within the poll's 5 percent margin of error.

    there are two likely legal results of the Trump "nullify the election" propaganda campaign: (1) The Supreme Court could potentially disqualify electors on the basis that their state's results are too unclear to certify before the December 14 statutory deadline when the Electoral College must meet, thereby throwing the entire election to the U.S. House of Representatives for resolution, as set out in the 12th Amendment to the Constitution; or (2) the Supreme Court might point to the Electoral Count Act of 1887, which states that the House and Senate together will decide which Electoral College electors are to be...

    The far-left Newsweek just fired off around a thousand words falsely accusing Amy Coney Barrett of inspiring the dystopian feminist thriller The Handmaid’s Tale, and has been forced to retract it. L to the M to the A to the O. Of course, the fake news outlet didn’t retract-retract it. That would require ethics and integrity, and anyone in the media who engages in ethics and integrity will be booted from the club, so Newsweek just wrote the equivalent of “nevermind” at the bottom of its big lie and rewrote the big lie a bit.
