  • Senate Democrats will BOYCOTT SCOTUS committee vote for Amy Coney Barrett and put pictures of people with pre-existing conditions on their chairs in protest at Trump nomination

    Democrats plan to skip the committee vote in protest Thursday, but do not have the power to stop the nomination from advancing. They blasted Barrett during her confirmation hearings and showed images of Americans at risk if they lose Affordable Care Act coverage. Sen. Charles Schumer called her views 'out of the mainstream', while pro-choice group NARAL called for Judiciary top Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein to lose her post for showing insufficient fight in the hearings. Democrat's move is to deny quorum. It could force the panel to change its rules. 'I will move forward. She deserves a vote,' said...

    Two Buffalo cops were arraigned on Saturday on one count each of assault in the second degree, after they allegedly shoved a 75-year-old demonstrator during anti-police brutality protests. Martin Gugino, a longtime peace activist in the upstate New York city, hit his head on the pavement and was left on the ground as blood pooled around his head on Thursday evening. He remained in hospital in a serious but stable condition on Saturday. Initially, city officials claimed Gugino had tripped and fell. However, a video surfaced showing riot police, who were clearing Niagara Square at the time, clearly pushing Gugino...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) late Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit from House Republicans seeking to block the chamber from holding proxy voting, in which members vote for colleagues remotely on the House floor. Pelosi issued a statement calling the lawsuit a "sad stunt" aimed at distracting from new efforts for an additional relief bill amid the coronavirus pandemic. "The House made its will clear two weeks ago when it voted to implement remote voting by proxy and other necessary measures to ensure that Congress can continue to protect lives and livelihoods," Pelosi said in a statement. "The House's position that remote...

Maduro made a nationwide broadcast on state television and held up a pair of U.S. passports that he said were recovered. He read off the names and birthdays of the two Americans.

    Ohio state Rep. Tavia Galonski (D) said that she will make a "referral for crimes against humanity" over President Trump's promotion of the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for novel coronavirus, despite its unproven benefits and lack of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. "I can't take it anymore. I've been to The Hague. I'm making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow," Galonski tweeted late Sunday. "Today's press conference was the last straw," Galonski added. "I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one." Trump has repeatedly promoted hydroxychloroquine, which is approved to treat conditions...

    [Catholic Caucus] Miraculous Crucifix Ruined at Pope Francis’ Urbi et Orbi Centuries-old wood 'explodes' after exposure to pouring rain VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - A "miraculous crucifix," which survived a fire in 1519 and halted the great plague of Rome in 1522, has suffered potentially irreparable damage after being exposed to pouring rain for over two hours during Pope Francis' special Urbi et Orbi blessing in St. Peter's Square on Friday. The wood on the sculpture tumefied and "exploded" as the rainwater penetrated the priceless work of art. The stuccos in various places used to plaster-coat the body of Jesus were severely eroded and much of the ancient...

    House Intelligence Committee chair turned House impeachment manager Adam Schiff tried to pull a fast one Wednesday by accusing President Donald Trump of “bribery” and “extortion.” “[W]e think there is a crime here of bribery or extortion, conditioning official acts for personal favors; that is bribery, it’s also what the founders understood as extortion,” he said while trying to rebut an argument from the president’s legal team that only actual criminal acts such as bribery are impeachable offenses. **SNIP** “If this were a criminal trial in an ordinary court and Mr. Schiff had done what he just did on the...

    In August, a photo surfaced of a boy in an Afro wig with makeup-darkened skin standing in for 11-year-old African-American actor Keith L. Williams on the Vancouver set of “Good Boys,” a comedy about three sixth-graders who ditch school and wind up on a road trip. The image sparked online outrage, and Seth Rogen, one of the film’s producers, quickly apologized, declaring that on all future projects his team would “take every precaution to make sure something similar does not take place again.” It turned out that the boy in the makeup, reportedly the son of a stuntman, was African-American...

Cops say Therese Patricia Okoumou — a 44-year-old immigrant from the Democratic Republic of the Congo — was the person responsible for the Fourth of July protest. She lives in the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island and is currently in federal custody, according to police sources. Officers from the NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit transported her to a federal detention center on Wednesday night following her three-hour standoff with authorities. Her case is being handled by prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.

    A 13-year-old running for governor in Vermont is highlighting gun control in his platform. Ethan Sonneborn, who declared his candidacy last year, is calling for stricter gun control in his home state, and told CNN in an interview published Friday that the refreshed national conversation on guns in the aftermath of the Florida school shooting presents a “good opportunity to make change.” “There's always been a sense of, 'We don't talk about that in politics.' That's what I wanted to change," Ethan told CNN. "I wish it didn't take a tragedy for us to become involved in a national dialogue...

When I first posted this story, I said it smelled fishy. Now it positively stinks. Does this look like a clock to you? And now the plot thickens. In what has become one of the most egregious of the faked hate narratives, the bomb hoax clockster has a family with a history of supremacist stunts. “One of the earliest instances of the standout citizen making national news was in 2011, when he sensationally stood up to an anti-Islamic...

    BEAUMONT, CA – A viral video of a person jumping a Southern California freeway was making the rounds Friday. The motorcyclist's daring – and potentially deadly – stunt was caught on camera and shared on Facebook. The video clip, which is just under a minute long, was shot in an area known as The Badlands, between Beaumont and Moreno Valley. In the segment, the rider is seen as he first prepares the dirt path in the hilly pass and then as he jumps across four lanes of traffic on the 60 freeway below.
