    A black cat survived after jumping out of a window of a multistory office building on fire Thursday in Chicago. Chicago Fire Media shared a video on Twitter that shows the cat taking the leap and landing on its feet on the ground below. The video also caught people’s reactions to the cat risking its life...
  • WATCH: 5 Doctor Panel Issues Warning, Claim COVID Vaccines Being Used As ‘Bioweapons’

    05/09/2021 12:22:40 PM PDT · by A.M. Smith · 58 replies
    In a video that is gaining a massive amount of traction, two doctors, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny and Dr. Larry Palevsky, host a round table discussion called “Critical Thinking” with three special guests, Dr. Carrie Madej, Dr. Christiane Northrup, and Dr. Lee Merritt, where they discuss, what they believe, are extreme dangers of “weaponized” COVID-19 vaccines. The topic at hand is the impact of the experimental COVID injections on women’s health. This is especially true for people who have chosen not to receive the experimental COVID-19 vaccine but have been exposed to those who have, and have contracted infections that appear...
  • Maricopa County Defies Subpoena, Won't Release Hardware For Election Audit Over 'Security Risk'

    Conservative Brief ^ | 5/7 | Martin Walsh
    Something must be really worrying Democrats. There appears to be a full-court press effort to delay and defer any and every effort to audit Maricopa County's election results. Officials in Arizona's Maricopa County are withholding materials subpoenaed by the state legislature as part of its audit of the county's 2020 election, claiming that surrendering them would constitute a security risk for both law enforcement and federal agencies.
  • Democrats Tiptoe Around Potential Retirement Of Liberal Supreme Court Justice

    Conservative Brief ^ | 5/6 | Carmine Sabia
    Democrats are having flashbacks of what happened with the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but this time it is with current Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. Many Democrat politicians have been tiptoeing around his feelings and not directly asking him to retire because they are frightened that it may look too political. But what they want is a new, young liberal justice on the court in the place of the 82-year-old justice, CNN reported.
  • New York Governor Cuomo Announces Change To Seating For Vaccinated People At Yankees, Mets Games

    Conservative Brief ^ | 5/6 | Carmine Sabia
    Two Major League Baseball teams, the New York Yankees and New York Mets, are getting prepared to, kind of, bring their games back to normal. But the price of bringing the games back to somewhat normal is precisely what many people were frightened of to begin with, CBS New York reported. Their stadiums, Yankee Stadium and Citi Field respectively, will have separate seating for vaccinated and non-vaccinated people. In the vaccinated section, fans will not have to socially distance but will still, ridiculously, have to wear masks even after the Centers For Disease Control said masks were not needed outside.
  • Major Liability? Biden’s Dog Bites Another Employee After Returning From Delaware Seclusion

    Res Ipsa Loquitur ^ | March 30, 2021 | Jonathan Turley
    .... Now Major has bitten another person who reportedly required medical attention. In the prior column, I noted that under tort law a dog is afforded (at most) “one free bite” before strict liability applies. Major could now be treated as a known vicious animal for liability purposes.... The subsection says that the dog was “off the premises of the owner . . . nor otherwise under the immediate control of a person capable of physically restraining it.” The key issue is the meaning of “nor.” It does not say “or” to clearly mean that you can be liable for...

  • Gray Wolves Spotted in Central California for the First Time in a Century

    Big League Politics ^ | February 26, 2021 | Richard Moorehead
    A gray wolf (canis lupus) has been observed in counties of California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range, with the animal returning to territory from which it’s been absent from for nearly a century. The GPS-tracked wolf, designated OR-93, has traveled south from Oregon, passing through Modoc County and Alpine County. Most recently, the wolf entered Mono County. The journey of the young male wolf represents new territorial range from the species. Biologists believe it’s possible the wolf’s presence could result in the formation of new wolf packs in the Sierra Nevada region, should the animal prove successful in returning to the...

    SS ^ | 2/6/21 | SS
    Since early 2021 much of regional Australia is experiencing a mouse plague. The rodents have kept multiplying through the summer, and are expected to continue to do so even through the winter, potentially threatening crops. Now look at the result! It’s apocalyptic: Hundreds of thousands of mice are ransacking sheds and houses, getting onto and into everything across NSW, Qld, SA and Victoria, Australia. The rodents are munching through crops and wiring, and to the horror of home owners they’ve even been found in bags of bread. The whole district smells of mice. Why this mouse plague? Rainfall and good...

    VIDEOThe owner of this Shih Tzu told me she named the dog "Andy Rooney" because he resembled the late CBS commentator Andy Rooney both in appearance as well as due to having the same curmudgeonly character. What do you think? I can attest that the Andy Rooney dog definitely was a curmudgeon since he only barely tolerated my presence.

    Unexplained deaths of sea life are continuing to cause anxiety in Russia’s Far East. On Tuesday, fish, octopuses and crabs were filmed washed ashore hundreds of kilometers away from the spot where the alarm was first raised. A video of the ecological disaster near Ozernovskiy village on Kamchatka’s western coast shows dead marine creatures scattered along a 50-meter-wide area of the beach. The peninsula, some 7,000km east of Moscow, is home to one of the earth’s most pristine environments. The footage is similar to clips that came from Avacha Bay on the opposite eastern coast in late September, when numerous...

    Stephen Maciejewski dropped to a knee on a Center City sidewalk Wednesday morning and gently scooped up a yellow-billed cuckoo that had smashed into a skyscraper and died on its way to Central America or the West Indies. “This probably happened yesterday,” said Maciejewski, a 71-year-old retired social worker and volunteer for Audubon Pennsylvania. He labeled a plastic bag with the time, date, and location, tucked the slim migrator into it, and continued his rounds. Maciejewski gets emotional when he speaks about all the birds he finds, but nothing, he says, prepared him for what happened Friday. “So many birds...
