    The Epoch Times ^ | January 26, 2021 | Jenni Julander
    One girl from Spain is proving that anyone can make their dreams come true, even people like her who were born with Down syndrome. Marian Avila has made a successful career as a model, despite how difficult it can be for people with Down syndrome to find a job. She is leveraging the media attention she’s received to bring awareness to the chromosomal disorder and encourage people to pursue their dreams no matter what. As a child, Marian always dreamed of becoming a model. Not only was she born with Down syndrome, she is only 5-foot-3. Her height alone would...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A home security technician has pleaded guilty to repeatedly hacking into customers’ video feeds, announced Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Prerak Shah. Telesforo Aviles, a 35-year-old former ADT employee, pleaded guilty to computer fraud on Thursday, Jan. 21, in federal court. “This defendant, entrusted with safeguarding customers’ homes, instead intruded on their most intimate moments,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Prerak Shah. “We are glad to hold him accountable for this disgusting betrayal of trust.” “The defendant used his position of employment to illegally breach the privacy of numerous people. The FBI works with our...

  • Anger over failure to pay compensation for violin “seized by Nazis”

    01/26/2021 3:35:45 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 24 replies
    The current holders of a valuable violin are under growing pressure to pay compensation to the heirs of its Jewish former owner, whose family music shop was seized by the Nazis. The rare instrument, built in 1706 by the celebrated Italian luthier Giuseppe Guarneri, is worth approximately 150,000 euros, or around £133,200. But if it was repaired to its full glory, experts say it would be with at least $1 million. It came into Felix Hildesheimer’s possession in 1938. The music shop owner took over his father’s business in 1898 and bought the rare instrument from a Stuttgart-based music dealer...

    Leaders in Oregon and Washington are finally pledging an end to near-nightly chaos caused by antifa and other radical groups they gave free rein to while former President Donald Trump was in office. But they have a problem with their proposed crackdown. Bail reforms in liberal states are hoisting Democrats by their own petard...

    This is a message for Democrats. Not progressives, or socialists, or communist sympathizers, but real, old-school, Democrats. The kind that love the United States of America and only differ from Republicans because their vision of government is as a benevolent entity meant to help our fellow human beings.Your party is gone.Really, It’s GoneThe party that took over the White House on January 20th is a very different party, and if you don’t get wise to it soon, it will be too late.The violence of January 6th has led various pundits and politicians to use the word “insurrection.” That word is...

    As Azuka laid down in bed feverish, he had resigned to his fate believing he was not going to make it to the next day. Just 3 days into the new year and all the fun he had, attending weddings and burial ceremonies in the east all seemed like a big mistake. He must have caught covid-19 at one of those events, he thought. Since attending the last event, he fell sick and has been exhibiting the symptoms of Covid-19 and just waiting to die until someone recommended Ivermectin, a little known drug as a potential medicine that could help...

    MIAMI – Florida’s chief financial officer on Monday told the International Olympic Committee that the state would be happy to host the Olympics Games amid speculation that current host Japan may back out. Jimmy Patronis sent a letter to Thomas Bach, the head of the IOC, “to encourage you to consider relocating the 2021 Olympics from Tokyo, Japan to the United States of America, and more specifically to Florida.” “With media reports of leaders in Japan ‘privately’ concluding that they are too concerned about the pandemic for the 2021 Olympics to take place, there is still time to deploy a...

    The Fed's most frequent lament is that no matter how many trillions in bonds (and stocks and ETFs) it buys or how much liquidity it forehoses into the market, it just can't push inflation higher.Well, here's an idea: maybe all the central-planning megabrains at the Marriner Eccles building and 33 Liberty Street can take a break from whatever circle jerk they are engaged in right now, and look at the latest Case Shiller numbers which showed not only that home prices surged at the fastest pace in seven years, rising more than 9% compared to a year ago...... but that...

    If Hawley and Cruz Are Cancelled, Conservatism Is NextAny conservative worth his salt should defend senators against baseless and dictatorial attacks.The usual suspects have, once again, cobbled together a show trial for Donald Trump in hopes of finally ousting him as the main competitor to their self-proclaimed monopoly on authority and public opinion. Nothing new, of course: this has been the aim of the ruling class, left and right, for the past few years. But now that Trump’s term has drawn to a close, his enemies have begun to focus their fire more keenly on the (alarmingly few) senators who...

    GOP Election Fraud Deniers Face ReckoningOne cannot simultaneously defend the integrity of the 2020 election and demand new laws to ensure election integrity. So here’s the official company line promoted by establishment Republicans to defend the outcome of the 2020 presidential election: Of course the election had some irregularities like all elections but nothing that would change the result and, by the way, the country needs some major election integrity reform before this happens again.The doublespeak designed to refute what election fraud deniers call “the big lie” was best expressed over the weekend by Chris Christie, the former New Jersey...

    First, a surprise, as who would’ve thought the best video shown all weekend would be on ABC’s Sunday show with George Stephanopoulos?Not because of Stephanopoulos, of course, but of how Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul responded to him after being asked the leading, litmus-test question, “This election was not stolen. Do you accept that fact?”Kentucky Senator Rand Paul Did Not Play AlongTo his everlasting credit, Sen. Paul did not play along with the Leftist Inquisition, saying instead that “the debate over whether or not there was fraud should occur,” that there was never any presentation in court of the evidence and...

    or those of us watching this made-for-TV special in which a totalitarian cabal at the core of the Democratic Party takes over America while we are locked at home, one question arises: Does the mentally impaired Joseph R. Biden know that he was put into the presidency by a small committee* of hard Left operatives, and is currently serving as a figurehead, as all decisions about policy and personnel are made by others? Or does he think that he really is “the president,” with all that usually entails? Does he believe that 81 million adult American citizens voted for him...

    The effort to demonize dissent doesn't just stop with Republicans. “Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” --George Orwell In “woke'' society, West Coast Democrats who attack police and property are underprivileged “protesters,” while Republicans who break the law are poorly-educated domestic terrorists. Violent Antifa = protester... MAGA lawbreaker = terrorist. This corrosive labeling of groups by U.S. media and the ruling class is at the root of the huge division in this country. There was a time in America when people with opposing political views could agree on...

    Hours after being sworn in as America's 46th president, Joe Biden reversed Trump's ban on using toxic Critical Race Theory in federal government diversity trainings. Doing so has reopened the floodgates for allowing anti-American identity politics in our public institutions and schools. Corwin Press, an academic publisher that supplies books for K–12 schools, has taken advantage of Biden's new agenda by releasing a series of free teacher resources titled "Responding to Insurrection, Domestic Terrorism, and Threats to Democracy." A quick look at these so-called teacher resources, which are linked at the top of Corwin's webpage, reveals that they are disturbingly...

    While there is yet much to learn about what happened at the Capitol on January 6, some important facts are known beyond a reasonable doubt: 1. Most protesters who entered the Capitol encountered no resistance, and some were directed by police on where to go. 2. Some protesters who led the storming of the Capitol were leftist agitators. 3. The riot was planned, and foreknowledge of this event was reported to the FBI, Capitol police, NYPD, and even the Joint Terrorism Taskforce. This raises the following questions: 1. If the police allowed protesters into the Capitol because they were overwhelmed,...

    He’s jettisoning this 215-year-old protection for minority rights based upon promises from two Democrat senators. ...Thanks to Kamala’s tie-breaking vote, Sen. Chuck Schumer is the Majority Leader. He’s proposed an equal-power sharing agreement, provided that the Senate ditches the filibuster. Of course, the notion of equal power is a chimera. I did mention Kamala’s tie-breaking vote, right? For a while McConnell held firm, refusing to go along with Schumer’s proposal. But Schumer nagged, whined, and complained. He went on MSNBC and said that McConnell’s stubbornness was making his “entire caucus” mad. For a while, McConnell held strong. But no longer....
