    Police in New York are looking for the vandals who cut down a flagpole at a memorial honoring five firefighters who died in the September 11 terrorist attacks. The police chief of Washingtonville, a village north of New York City, told the Times-Herald Record that vandals used a tool to cut the flagpole about five feet from its base and then scrawled a message on the part left standing. Police discovered the damage early Wednesday and would not disclose the nature of the message.---

    With this latest insult to it's majority white fan base, LSU and many of it's former black basketball players put their skin tones above what is best for the school and it's support from fans in another display of total ignorance in support of Black Lives Matter. How many more insults can a state financed institution throw at it's fans who just want to be left alone? That the school actively supports this effort and that it is occurring during an election year is criminal. The leftist behind all of this have destroyed one thing after another in their demonic...

    Research was omitted from landmark paper claiming natural origin of SARS-CoV-2. Report: Claire Robinson Chinese and US scientists have been collaborating for years in dangerous gain-of-function experiments that involve genetically engineering coronaviruses from bats and other animals, as revealed by a series of scientific publications.

    If we’re inclined to glide past the Marxist fingerprints all over America’s current turmoil, assuming its ideas will flare up for a while and then burn out, we’re not paying attention. American institutions have stoked the coals of Karl Marx’s destructive ideology, fanning its flames until his notions have consumed our cultural pillars.Far from being forgotten and irrelevant, Marx’s ideas pervade key institutions, from universities and schools, to mass media and popular entertainment, to major corporations and medicine, to the arts and sciences. They’ve even seeped into many churches and seminaries. Of course, they also define the Democratic Party, Joe...

    A $1 billion solar plant approved in 2011 never delivered what it promised and closed last year. Solar farms are the new frontier in energy, with falling costs and myriad benefits. A combination of terrible management and simple technological advancement turned the plant into a dinosaur. ======================================================================= Bloomberg reports that a planned $1 billion solar plant was out of date and obsolete before it could even be completed. The Crescent Dunes plant opened outside of Las Vegas in 2015, when its technology was already behind, and the solar boom since then has completely eclipsed it. Now, the closed and...

    Health and safety concerns appear to be contributing to a surge in gun sales. Background checks in Minnesota spiked in March as COVID-19 hit the United States, with more than 96,000 filed the most for any month in 20 years. Kory Krause, the owner of Frontiersman Sports in St. Louis Park, says demand again grew following George Floyds death last month, and it is still climbing. People are really scared coming in here, Krause said. We had a three, four hour wait just to get up to the counter during the height of the rioting.

    President Trump, in the wake of Thursday's defeat at the Supreme Court in his efforts to repeal the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, called for new justices as conservatives took aim at Chief Justice John Roberts for what they called a pattern of siding with the liberal wing in key decisions. The recent Supreme Court decisions, not only on DACA, Sanctuary Cities, Census, and others, tell you only one thing, we need NEW JUSTICES of the Supreme Court.

    2010 started with a Republican Senate seat in true-blue Massachusetts, Democrats first such defeat in decades. On Nov. 2, Republicans gained six more Senate seats and a whopping 63 House seats, the worst midterm House losses since 1938. The damaging 2010 federal election results were nothing compared to what happened later when Democrats got their political clocks cleaned by aggressive state Republicans. Obama was more interested in his own reelection and fundraising. After 417 weeks in office, hed held 416 fundraisers. Under Obama, Democrats lost upwards of 1,000 legislative seats along with control of chamber after chamber, plus numerous governors...

    Top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell says he's "OK" with renaming military bases that are named after Confederate Army officers, declining to side with President Donald Trump and other Republicans opposed to the move. The Kentucky senator said he'll live with whatever lawmakers decide as they debate an annual defence policy bill for the military in the coming weeks. Trump has blasted the calls to rename the military bases. "Hopefully our great Republican Senators won't fall for this!" he said in a tweet last week.
