    Deploying air marshals to border leaves US 'vulnerable to attack' during holiday travel season, official claims U.S. air marshals are reportedly staging a "mutiny" on the Biden administration over its immigration policies, as they plan to refuse mandatory deployment orders to the southern border and, therefore, face possible termination. Though refusing the order puts them at risk of termination, dozens of air marshals argue that abandoning their current assignments will leave American fliers more vulnerable to threats over the busy holiday travel season. Amid an influx of illegal immigrants held in custody, the Federal Air Marshal Service asked for volunteers...

    A tree trimmer died after falling into a wood chipper Tuesday, police in California reported. Shortly before 1pm on Tuesday, a tree trimmer in Menlo Park, roughly 30 miles south of San Francisco, accidentally fell into a wood chipper and died, according to ABC News. “When police units arrived on scene, a male subject was found deceased from injuries sustained in the incident,” Menlo Park police department told the outlet, confirming the fatality. Video footage of the scene was released by CBS News showing the wood chipper with a yellow tarp covering part of the machine. The street was closed...
  • No, Abortion Is Not Safer Than Childbirth — Here’s The Data The Left Wants To Hide

    The Federalist ^ | 10/03/2022 | DR. GRAZIE POZO CHRISTIE
    The left relies on a faulty study that overcounted deaths from childbearing and undercounted deaths from abortion. Who can forget Mark Twain’s famous maxim: “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics”? I’ve been brooding over this line while watching the pro-abortion left hard at work promoting the startling (and erroneous) claim that “an American woman is 14 times more likely to die” from childbirth than from abortion. They want to move this false claim into the popular imagination, to make the conversation solely about pregnant women’s safety and ignite an unreasonable fear of carrying a child...

    The Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has acknowledged publicly for the first time that the agency gave false information about its COVID-19 vaccine safety monitoring. Dr. Rochelle Walensky admitted that her agency falsely claimed it was carrying out robust safety monitoring in 2021 and that it only actually did so from March 2022 – but it still refuses to release the full data. The Epoch Times has the story.Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the [CDC’s] Director, said in a letter made public on September 12th that the CDC did not analyse certain types of adverse event...

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) called Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) "immoral and unpatriotic for busing away immigrants released into Texas by federal immigration authorities. His behavior defies the values of who we are as Americans. It's inhumane. If the President wanted these immigrants to come to my city he would have had them flown here rather than making them take a two-day bus ride." Abbott said "we didn't force any of the immigrants to board these buses. When they heard that Chicago was a sanctuary city they were eager to go there. Isn't a sanctuary defined as a place...

    A NIGHTCLUB has banned staring without getting "verbal consent" - and hired "safety officers" in pink vests to police revellers. The venue also asked clubbers not to turn up if their "sole purpose" for their night out is the meet someone to "pick up". Club 77 in Sydney said managers will call the cops if clubbers stare at others without getting their consent. And in an Instagram post, the club said "safety officers" in pink vests would enforce the new staring rules. Club 77 said it wanted to be a "safe space" and updated its rules as it had recently...

    BUFFALO, N.Y. — New legislation regarding bicycle safety will come into effect as Gov. Kathy Hochul takes measures that will require new drivers to learn about pedestrian and bicycle safety when on the road. This new requirement will be apart of new drivers pre-licensing exam and will be a prerequisite to obtaining any motor vehicle license. "My top priority as Governor is to keep New Yorkers safe, and it is common sense to make pedestrian and bike safety education mandatory for drivers," Governor Hochul said in a statement. "This law will help prevent crashes and save lives, and I thank...

    Starbucks is closing 16 locations in cities around the nation after the coffee giant’s employees reported a string of “personal safety” incidents, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. Translation: Crime is skyrocketing and our workers are too terrified to even show up at these locations.The company will shutter six stores in both Seattle and Los Angeles, two in Portland, and one each in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. by the end of July. What do all those locations have in common? They’re in deep-blue areas with soft-on-crime district attorneys and past support of the “defund the police” movement. How’d that work...

    Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), the lead Republican negotiator of a bipartisan gun safety framework, said Wednesday that some issues still need to be ironed out and warned the package may have to be slimmed down in order to get a bill passed. Cornyn said he’s “starting to get a little concerned” about the impasse over “a couple of issues that need to be settled before we can reach an agreement.”

    Starbucks considers walking back its “all inclusive” bathroom policy, first instituted in 2018 following the arrest of two black men at a store in Philadelphia who were denied bathroom use until they made a purchase. The policy was an unmitigated disaster as Starbucks bathrooms in some areas of the country transformed into homeless shelters and a safe space for drug addicts to shoot up. CEO Howard Schultz appears to have found a possible out to reverse former CEO Kevin Johnson’s disastrous open bathroom policy. Speaking on Thursday at NYTimes‘ DealBook D.C. policy forum, Schultz said increasing threats to public safety...

    During an interview on MSNBC on Tuesday, Rep. Colin Allred (D-TX) stated that the appropriate model to look at with gun regulations is “how we’ve approached car safety over the years, to progressively find ways to make cars more safe on the road, whether that’s seat belts or speed limits, or moving forward with more safe technology in the vehicles themselves.” And that “Nobody’s talking about taking away your cars. They are saying though, that you can’t drive an F1 around, you can’t go certain speeds, you can’t do certain things because it’s dangerous.”
  • FDA Restricts J&J's COVID-19 Vaccine Due to Blood Clot Risk

    05/05/2022 4:21:43 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 31 replies
    The Food and Drug Administration said the shot should only be given to adults who cannot receive a different vaccine or specifically request J&J's vaccine. U.S. authorities for months have recommended that Americans starting their COVID-19 vaccinations use the Pfizer or Moderna shots instead. FDA officials said in a statement that they decided to restrict J&J's vaccine after taking another look at data on the risk of life-threatening blood clots within two weeks of vaccination. J&J's vaccine was initially considered an important tool in fighting the pandemic because it required only one shot. But the single-dose option proved less effective...

But he still got sick.“I was surprised because I was taking so many precautions,” he said.It’s no longer unusual to hear of someone getting COVID-19 even though they’re fully vaccinated and boosted. Yet, many Americans are still shocked when it happens to them.It is essentially another attempt to blame the...
  • Palm Beach County School Board a farce, children not safe

    The Palm Beach County School Board meetings are a dysfunctional mess, and school police are putting the school system on notice that, despite the best efforts of police, our children are not safe. Many school police are in constant contact with parent groups seeking change. A School Board District 6 candidate, Amanda Silvestri, read sample comments from a school police survey. The officers take the survey and pass it around to fellow officers. You can read the survey questions here:

    While most Americans were focused on partisan polarization in Washington, D.C., the U.S. criminal justice system has been quietly transformed by a group of radically liberal billionaires and millionaires. They have attacked our system of justice at its roots, bankrolling the campaigns of activist district attorney candidates who promise to give criminals soft sentences in the name of so-called social justice and equity.Now self-styled progressive district attorneys, many of whom toppled conventional Democratic opponents across the country by running to their left, are enforcing their own warped sense of social justice instead of the actual law. Unsurprisingly, crime has risen...
