    Tomorrow, Senator Harris is going to Huston Texas to try and tell lies about ending fracking and drilling for oil on federal grounds and waters. Both Biden and Harris have repeatedly promised that on day one of their administration they will end all fracking and oil leases on federal lands and waters. Harris is going to lie about it and every republican candidate in Texas is going to play video of both She and Biden saying those exact words. Senator Harris will be caught in her lies and most of the citizens of our nation will see her lies over...

    Japan Times ^ | October 9, 2020 | Ayai Tomisawa and Marika Katanuma
    The number of suicides rose in Japan in August due to more women and school-aged children taking their own lives — offering a first glimpse into the consequences of the mental health strain brought about by COVID-19 around the globe. Japan is among a few major economies that releases timely data on suicides as it is a persistent societal issue. The numbers hint at what may be going on around the world as countries grapple with the fallout from mass unemployment and social isolation that’s impacting certain groups of people more than the rest. Sociologists have long warned that the...

    The Federalist ^ | October 9, 2020 | Georgi Boorman
    The CDC wants Americans to have 'virtual' Thanksgivings, staycation holidays, and gatherings with only your household to avoid spreading COVID-19. But loneliness is a scourge, too. Make this the most joyous holiday season yet. In a nation fatigued by social distancing and dying to escape loneliness, the inimitable Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued recommendations for how to have a “safe” holiday season. Spoiler: A CDC-compliant season will not be “the most wonderful time of the year.”Our national public health experts have steered us confidently through some murky waters. After all, how else would we know that public...

Police have not confirmed that Parscale worked for Trump, but records confirm that the property in Fort Lauderdale is owned by Parscale, 44, and Local 10 has spoken to neighbors who also said it was the former advisor to the President. Fort Lauderdale Police responded to a home in reference to an armed male attempting suicide Sunday afternoon. When officers...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci thinks that we'll probably never get rid of the coronavirus entirely. Still, he's pretty confident that by 2022, Americans should be able to resume most aspects of life as we knew it before the pandemic — "if we deploy a vaccine and we implement public-health measures." Read our wide-ranging interview below, in which we discuss Fauci's daily routine, his tips for holiday gatherings, his advice for how to keep your immune system "working optimally," and more. Dr. Anthony Fauci answers the phone at lunchtime while biting into a cold piece of pizza. The head of the National...

    This is a very difficult article for me to write, but I definitely need to write it. All over the country, people are considering suicide because of all the bad things that have happened this year, and things are only going to get even more challenging in 2021 and beyond. This greatly grieves me, because suicide is never the answer to anything, and I wish that I could sit down individually with every person that is considering suicide and get them to understand this. Our lives are meant to be lived with purpose, passion and great joy, and that doesn’t...

    It’s not just the loss of jobs, the end of school for children or the nonstop panic the mainstream is stirring up in an effort to knock out President Trump. The COVID-19 panic is having even more profound effects on the American society. “The number of people looking for divorces was 34 percent higher from March through June compared to 2019, according to new data collected Legal Templates, a company that provides legal documents,” Fox News reported. The combination of stress, unemployment, financial strain, death of loved ones, illness, homeschooling children, mental illnesses, and more has put a significant strain...

    A troubled woman obsessed with badger culls jumped off a cliff with her beloved dogs after suffering with poor mental health, an inquest has heard. The bodies of 45-year-old Carla Kidd and her two dogs were found along the Cornwall coastline after she was reported missing. They were discovered on the morning of November 28 following a search along the coast between Hell’s Mouth and Portreath. Carla, who had been living in a tent in near Penzance, had suffered from 'paranoid and manic' behaviour for years. The inquest in Truro was told animal-loving Carla used to believe she was being...

    In these heady times, it seems, incidents are quickly magnified and wildly distorted, leading to mass public outrage when really none should be warranted: Case in point, the state of Minnesota was forced to declare a "state of peacetime emergency" in Minneapolis last night after violent protests erupted following the death of a local black man. Violence erupted once again in the larger of the twin cities last night, with video showing angry "demonstrators" burning down businesses, rioting and looting, following "misinformation" about the killing of a black homicide suspect. Rumors spread online said he had been killed in...

    Remember the stereotype of the lazy college professor living an almost stress-free life while enjoying tenure, virtually a sinecure, often supported by taxpayer dollars? Tomes and articles identifying examples of this professor abound. Along with this job protection comes the opportunity to impose political correctness with impunity. Try telling that story to true contrarians. For an example, consider Michael Jay Shively, who taught biology for 26 years at Utah Valley University. Shively, The Chronicle of Higher Education reports, “was rigorous” and “took pride in the anatomy courses he built and the hard work they required.” On March 25, 2019, Shively...

    As you send your kids off to college, you might be apprehensive about them getting killed. But if you follow the data instead of the media, you will understand that they are exponentially more likely to die from a car accident or from getting convinced to drink or shoot up drugs than from COVID-19. ... What is shocking and laughable, yet tragic at the same time, is the lack of recognition that not wearing masks (even assuming they work) is the least of the “high-risk” behavior on campuses. ... Drugs, alcohol, and deadly car crashes, unfortunately, are not limited by...

    A "TERMINALLY ill" 11-year-old was scheduled to have her leg amputated when her dad apparently shot her dead in a murder-suicide. Angela Ng, 11, had been diagnosed with femur cancer and was undergoing chemo, when she was killed by her dad Kenbian Ng, 52, who then turned the gun on himself on Monday, according to relatives and police. One relative told local media that Angela's prognosis was grim and that she had been scheduled for a leg amputation on August 28. “It was a devastating terminal illness,” Davie police spokesman Lt. Mark Leone said of the girl's condition. “She was...

    For communities with a low rate of depression and suicide, there may be something in the water, according to a new study. A comprehensive analysis of findings from previous studies has revealed that regions where the public drinking water contains a high level of naturally occurring lithium — a mineral used most often for the treatment of depression and bipolar disorder — also boast a lower rate of suicide than other areas. The review included all prior research on the effects of lithium, as well as regional water samples and suicide data from 1,286 locales in Austria, Greece, Italy, Lithuania,...

    Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is promoting the reopening of schools across the country, noting the serious risks associated with keeping kids out of classrooms. During a webinar for the Buck Institute, Redfield pointed out the low risk of children spreading COVID-19 and said the spike in suicides and drug overdoses is “far greater” than the number of coronavirus-related deaths among the country’s younger population. “It’s not risk of school openings versus public health,” he said. “It’s public health versus public health.” Redfield added, “I’m of the point of view, and I weigh...
