    Federal investigators in Germany have unearthed new evidence linking Iran to the 1985 bombing of a US military base that injured 35 people, a report said on Saturday. Iranian secret agents had allegedly detonated explosives concealed in a vehicle at the Frankfurt post-exchange food store on November 24, 1985, said the report in Focus news magazine. Focus said investigators believe the agents were members of a hit squad working on orders from Teheran to eliminate dissidents living in Europe in exile. The hit squad was also responsible for the deaths of two dissidents, one in Hamburg in 1987 and another...

    WASHINGTON — Dr. Deborah Birx has announced she plans to retire after being outed on Sunday for not following her own holiday travel guidance, calling the experience “overwhelming.” In an interview with Newsy, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator said she would help the incoming Biden administration but then planned to head for the exits. “I want the Biden administration to be successful,” Birx said, noting that she has worked in the federal government since the Regan administration in 1980. “I will be helpful in any role that people think I can be helpful in and then I will...

    Concerns that family reunions over Christmas could spread coronavirus have led to much tighter restrictions in many parts of the UK.Some have pointed to the US, claiming that family gatherings at Thanksgiving - at the end of November - led to an increase in cases.So, what - if any - evidence is there for this?What you can see from the graph is that because of reporting delays around the holiday period, there was a flattening of the curve followed by a catch-up period. But overall, cases rose by about 20% in the two weeks following Thanksgiving - about the same...

    CHICAGO — Predictions of a “surge on a surge” of coronavirus cases caused by Thanksgiving travel may be coming true in some parts of the U.S., but Illinois has seen a drop in new infections on average even as the state reports more lives lost than at any other point of the pandemic.

    Private property rights and personal responsibility saved the Plymouth colony from the edge of extinction and laid the economic foundation for a free and prosperous nation. It is widely known that the early Pilgrims came to the New World to escape religious persecution. What is lesser known is that their spiritual adventure was also a commercial enterprise. Today’s self-identified democratic socialists like to claim real socialism has never been tried in America, but they need to brush up on their history. The Pilgrims did try it — and it failed. In the early 17th century, King James I chartered a...

    In early November, as health officials warned of a impending COVID-19 spike, Austin Mayor Steve Adler hosted an outdoor wedding and reception with 20 guests for his daughter at a trendy hotel near downtown. The next morning, Adler and seven other wedding attendees boarded a private jet bound for Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where they vacationed for a week at a family timeshare. One night into the trip, Adler addressed Austin residents in a Facebook video: “We need to stay home if you can. This is not the time to relax. We are going to be looking really closely. …...

    San Jose’s Democrat Mayor Sam Liccardo has issued an apology after he failed to take his own advice and celebrated Thanksgiving with people outside of his immediate household, despite urging residents to “cancel the big gatherings” amid the coronavirus pandemic. In his apology, Liccardo said his Thanksgiving arrangement with his family was “contrary to the rules” established by the state. “In summary, eight of us representing five households sat around three distanced tables in our own family groups on the back patio, and we wore masks when not eating,” Liccardo wrote in a lengthy statement. “I have a very large...

In a Sunday interview with CBS anchor Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation,” the White House coronavirus task force coordinator urged anyone who gathered for the holiday to get tested within the next few days.

    Since my last post on this subject, 15 days ago, we have had Thanksgiving. You are all well familiar with how our betters urged us to not get together with friends and family this year due to the dread virus ‘rona. I posted then that I looked forward to Freepers reporting on their discussions with friends and family over Thanksgiving and that I was hoping some of you could report good news, such as finding out that people you never thought would wake up are waking up. So, what about your Thanksgiving? Please post if you have something interesting to...

    Public health officials are bracing for a new round of COVID-19 case spikes as many Americans traveled and held large family gatherings over the Thanksgiving holiday in defiance of mitigation guidance from the government, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday. Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, warned that as the nation heads into December, officials expect “we might see a surge superimposed on the surge we are already in.” “I don’t want to frighten people except to say it’s not too late at all for us to do something about this,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Fauci urged...

    You’ve seen the photos. Airports are packed. Millions have traveled for the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s not nearly as bad as last year, a sign that there are Americans staying put—but did the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and the rest of the COVID Nazis think that America was not going to celebrate Thanksgiving? I mean, Fauci again went on Good Morning America Wednesday to give one last piece of advice:Dr. Anthony Fauci speaks to our @GStephanopoulos about small gatherings ahead of Thanksgiving and a possible surge in coronavirus cases.“A sacrifice now could save lives and illness...

    In what has become a highly fractured political climate, it’s perhaps hard to find someone who everyone likes, appreciates and didn’t seem to ever be on a political side, but seemed to be on the side of all Americans, attempting to enrich and uplift all with the simple joy of his show, Jeopardy. That of course was Alex Trebek, a man universally loved and appreciated for all the years he entertained America. Trebek died on November 8 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, which he fought with dignity and grace. Trebek was 80. But even at 80, he seemed...
