    The clothing corporation Patagonia is vowing to pay bail for employees who are arrested at pro-abortion protests following the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) overruling Roe v. Wade in its 5-4 decision in the Dobbs case. On Friday, SCOTUS ruled 5-4 to overrule Roe and return the issue of abortion to the states, where legislatures will decide laws and regulations. Subsequently, pro-abortion activists are pledging to protest across multiple U.S. cities and are being cheered on by elected Democrats. Patagonia executives are now vowing that they will pay the bail of employees arrested at such protests. “All part-time and full-time...

    I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve heard people yammer on and on about how horrible classic cars are for the environment. Usually their eyes are bugging out, spittle’s flying out of their mouth, and they’re absolutely filled with self-righteousness but few facts. They’ll vehemently insist that driving your old Camaro, Mustang, Charger, or whatever you own is absolutely destroying the planet in real time while refusing to discuss the process of extracting minerals for making EV batteries, let alone the insane energy levels required in the manufacturing process. That’s why reading a new study from UK insurance...

    Sharp chest pains. Myocarditis and pericarditis. Heart attacks. Strokes and subsequent blindness.These are just some of the many COVID-19 vaccine-related adverse events reported by commercial airline pilots and by a growing number of advocacy groups representing aviation industry workers.According to these individuals and groups, the number of pilots speaking out about their vaccine injuries is dwarfed by the number of pilots who are still flying despite experiencing concerning symptoms — but not speaking out because of what they describe as a culture of intimidation within the aviation industry.These individuals fear they will lose their jobs and livelihoods in retaliation if...

    A federal waiver that made school breakfasts and lunches free to students regardless of their family’s income is set to expire June 30, eliminating a benefit that has helped millions of schoolchildren at a time when they need it more than ever, anti-hunger advocates say. The free school meals program began in March 2020 when Congress authorized the U.S. Department of Agriculture to issue dozens of child nutrition waivers, including ones that expanded summer food programs, to provide a lifeline during the pandemic.

    It couldn’t be the experimental, novel-platform gene- and immune-modulating COVID spike protein-making injection linked to heart inflammation, could it? They’re calling it Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, or SADS for short. Just like SIDS – Sudden Infant Death Syndrome – when healthy babies die suddenly (and most often on the same day as a wellness visit to the pediatrician). Except it occurs in adults. And children and teens too, though the name doesn’t reflect that. Yet. Healthy, young people are suddenly dropping dead across the globe, the Daily Mail reported last week, saying the surge of the “mysterious syndrome” is baffling...

    A rise in hate crimes and anti-Black vitriol sparked a 58 percent increase in Black people purchasing firearms in 2020. The spike seems to have continued. Philip Smith, founder and president of the National African American Gun Association. Two days after a white man shot and killed 10 Black people in Buffalo last month, Michael Moody reversed his thinking about possessing a firearm. He had watched the aftermath of the carnage on the news, the anguish of the victims’ families, and decided he “needed a gun. Needed, not wanted,” he said. After discussing it with his wife, Moody said he...

    Bay Area Reporter ^ | 10 June A.D. 2022 | Eric Burkett
    Allegations of racism are at the heart of the sudden resignation of trans Lutheran Bishop the Reverend Dr. Megan Rohrer, but court documents also reveal allegations of corruption tied to a now-closed San Francisco church that they once led. The catalyst for Rohrer's resignation as bishop of the Sierra Pacific Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America was their firing of a Latino pastor at a church in the Central Valley last December. But documents and court records show Rohrer's brief tenure was marked by controversy, with some incidents, such as the closure of their former church in San...

Kyle Chu, also known as drag queen Panda Dulce, hosted a story hour meant for preschool-aged children in celebration of Pride Month.

    The Shake Shack chain has become synonymous with smashed burgers, crinkle-cut fries, and Martin's Potato Rolls. But the latter has become a cause for concern among customers after local Pennsylvania news site Billy Penn reported that the people behind the bun company have donated thousands of dollars to the front-running Republican candidate for Pennsylvania governor, Sen. Doug Mastriano. Mastriano is regarded as a far-right Republican and recently received President Trump's backing in the race for governor, according to NBC News. Billy Penn reported that he gained popularity as a Trump-supporting election denier with Christian nationalist beliefs. Mastriano was also subpoenaed...

As such, records are being withheld pursuant to Government Code section 6254 (f).”
