    A doctor at Stanford University said the spike in hospital patients in Texas has "nothing to do with COVID-19.” Dr. Scott Atlas, a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution and the former chief of neuroradiology at the university’s medical center, joined Fox News’s The Story on Monday and said the public should not panic about the spike in hospitalizations. When I looked at every single hospital area in Texas today, 15-20% of people in the hospital as inpatients are COVID-positive patients. That means 80-85% have nothing to do with COVID-19. And the same thing goes with some of these...

    I have a pair of high end Costco hearing aids. Only wear them when I play cards, is that 4 spades or 4 aces, or go out to eat with friends. So last Friday we go out to our usual restaurant but as we started in they said that we needed masks till we sit down to eat and drink. Back to the car and don a mask. I sat down and started to speak to one of our friends and then remembered the mask. I grab it and pull it off and quickly realize that one of my hearing...

    Harvard Professor Lawrence Lessig, who has offered free legal advice to electors, said this week that 20 Republican electors are considering not voting for Trump. ... But the Republican National Committee, which according to Politico has been keeping tabs on its electors, has found no defectors except for Christopher Suprun, a Texas elector who has publicly announced his intention not to support Trump. ... there's little evidence that these entreaties might result in the kind of large-scale coordination that would be required to deny Trump the presidency.

    At pro-Palestinian Black Lives Matter rallies in New York and Washington, chants were heard calling for “Death to Israel,” “Death to America” and “From Gaza to Minnesota, globalize the Intifada!” Several hundred protesters attended the July 1 demonstration in Brooklyn dubbed as a “Day of Rage” event, set to coincide with the earliest date Israel could begin its plans to apply Israeli law over parts of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley. Speakers issued inflammatory rallying cries that ran the gamut from anti-Semitic and anti-American to just plain absurd. One pro-North Korea activist called for the end of the...
  • Ted Cruz Blasts Anarchists, AOC: Claims Biden Is Terrified Of Them

    Senator Ted Cruz blasted anarchists tearing down statues, adding later that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the mob are the exact same extremist base Joe Biden is petrified of upsetting. Cruz (R-TX) was responding to Kimberly Strassel, a Wall Street Journal columnist who reported that Biden, when pressed on the topic of monuments suggested the decision should rest with local governments, but that he “won’t condemn people lawlessly tearing them down.” The Republican congressman replied that Biden’s lack of condemnation is no surprise. “Dems support the riots. The vandals. The anarchists,” he wrote on Twitter. “That’s their base. And they’re terrified...

    A temp worker at Gibson Arnold & Associates in Houston, Texas, was recorded calling her manager the n-word.(snip) The woman in the viral video began the racist outburst while she was in the process of being fired from Gibson Arnold & Associates. The clip begins as the woman leans forward in her chair and calls the Black man sitting in front of her a “Fake a** n***a.” Several people can be heard verbally reacting to her statement but it’s unclear what anyone immediately said because they all spoke at once. She continued, “You have not been to the Niger, the...

Let’s start with President Kennedy. Just for starters, he...

    New York’s bloviating Gov. Andrew Cuomo, half of the Cuomo Brothers comedy team with brother Chris on Comedy Central, I mean CNN, has tried to excuse his incompetent stewardship over the health of the people of New York during the Chinese virus pandemic, by criticizing red states like Texas for opening up their economies “early” after the economy and job-killing lockdowns that have proven as great a threat to public health as any virus. Gov. Cuomo, last seen joking about his availability on the dating scene as he ordered New York nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patents, in effect a...

Anyone who knows how to find Bradley, Wilson, and Coles are asked to call the Harris County Sheriff's Office Violent Crime...

    A Texas soldier missing since April was killed by another soldier on the same military installation where they served, the lawyer for her family said Thursday. Spc. Vanessa Guillen was killed April 22, the day of her disappearance, by Spc. Aaron David Robinson inside an armory room where she was working on Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, attorney Natalie Khawam said during a news briefing. Khawam said she met with officials with the Army Criminal Investigation Command who provided her with the information, the Army Times reported.

    Encouraging polls are hard to come by lately but he’s had a couple. Trafalgar gave him a good one a few days ago when they found him a point up in Wisconsin, matching his margin from 2016. That was an outlier, as the previous three surveys of the state had Biden ahead by eight, eight, and 11 points. But if anyone’s entitled to a benefit of the doubt on a Rust Belt poll it’s Trafalgar, which detected Trump’s impending upsets there four years ago when no other pollster did. So maybe Wisconsin’s tighter at the moment than the conventional...

    Texas has joined other, mostly Democrat run, states in requiring face masks in most public places, including retail, services, and restaurants, except when eating or drinking. This is despite the fact that the GOP holds all statewide offices, as well as both houses of the Legislature, both Senate seats, and a majority of the U.S. House seats. Our rulers understand one thing above others: the almighty dollar. They also respect the voices of major financial donors. Texans and residents of all mask mandatory states should not buy anything other than food or items absolutely necessary, like a needed car repair...

    Los Angeles Democrat seeks “new path of support and collaboration” with Communist Cuban regime. “Congresswoman Karen Bass, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, is undergoing vetting as a candidate to be Joe Biden’s running mate,” Bo Erickson of CBS News reported on June 24. In March, the five-term Los Angeles Democrat endorsed Biden for president, but even some Democrats were troubled by one of Bass’s previous endorsements. “The passing of the Comandante en Jefe is a great loss to the people of Cuba,” said Bass in a statement after Fidel Castro passed away on November 25, 2016.  “I hope together,...

At the time of the party, several teens were waiting for their Covid-19 test results, and have since tested positive, according to Shelly Parks, a spokesperson with Austin Homeland Security & Emergency Management.

    My friend and colleague Dennis Prager often warns his national radio audience, “Everything the Left touches it destroys.” There is no clearer evidence of Prager’s wisdom than the Bolshevik gulag now being constructed on the former site of one of America’s most respected institutions of higher learning located on the Brazos River in Waco, Texas: Baylor University. Prager, of course, is probably the wrong guy to cite since he actually built a thriving, intellectually-honest, albeit online university ( Meanwhile, someone named Linda Livingstone, PhD, is currently presiding over the intellectual destruction of one chartered in 1845. Livingstone, Baylor’s 15th president,...

    The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command has confirmed a junior soldier tied to the disappearance of Fort Hood solider Vanessa Guillen shot and killed himself as police moved in to make an arrest overnight. A civilian, who is the estranged wife of a former soldier, is also in custody, according to the Army. The attorney and family of Guillen said early Wednesday that a third suspect was also in custody, although officials have not confirmed this detail. Authorities have also not released any of the suspects' names. At Wednesday morning's emotional press conference in Washington, D.C., the Guillen family said,...
