  • Nuns buy Smith & Wesson shares, then sue to stop production of AR-style rifles

    The Washington Post ^ | December 7, 2023 | Washington Post Staff
    A coalition of Catholic nuns has filed a lawsuit against gunmaker Smith & Wesson, calling for the company to stop producing AR-style rifles, which the women claim are “the weapon of choice for numerous mass murderers.” The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in a Nevada district court, alleges that Smith & Wesson has repeatedly ignored “red flags” and failed to respond appropriately to mass shootings in the United States. The lawsuit references some of the deadliest mass killings in recent U.S. history — including at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., in 2012; a high school in Parkland, Fla., in 2018; and...

    A school district in Lynchburg, Virginia, has received multiple death threats after the Washington Post published an article that claimed the board created a “blueprint for how to belittle, betray and dismiss kids” because it refused a $10,000 donation from a radical LGBT-pushing group. The Lynchburg City School Board voted 7 to 2 against the creation of LGBT “safe spaces” in its schools – designed to take children out of lessons and allow them to talk about their feelings in “comfortable chairs, blankets and low light” – with funds from the charity “It Gets Better.” The rejection infuriated Petula Dvorak...
  • With ‘conversion switch’ devices, machine guns return to U.S. streets

    12/06/2023 12:27:42 PM PST · by Twotone · 48 replies ^ | December 6, 2023 | Tom Jackman
    The earsplitting, heart-stopping roar of fully automatic weapons hasn’t been often heard on America’s streets since Congress largely outlawed them in 1934. But now it’s back, owing to a small device that is easily plugged into certain handguns and rifles, converting semiautomatic firearms into guns capable of firing 20 bullets in one second — with one pull of the trigger. In Sacramento last year, a handgun converted into a machine gun was used during a gun battle that left six dead, in what has been called Sacramento’s deadliest mass shooting. In Minneapolis, eight people were wounded in August amid a...

    Former congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming is the poster child of a Republican establishment abandoned by the party’s far-right base. Now, she’s billboarding what may come next: In an interview with CBS aired Sunday, Cheney lamented the extent to which the Republican Party had been “co-opted” by Trumpism and said she feared the potential of a vengeful Trump presidency in 2025. “One of the things that we see happening today is a sort of a sleepwalking into dictatorship in the United States,” Cheney said. Cheney’s refusal to accept former president Donald Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election had been...
  • Washington Post and BBC falsely claim the Dublin attacker was not an immigrant – here is the truth

    11/28/2023 5:08:07 PM PST · by MNDude · 25 replies
    On 25th November (local time), The Washington Post published a report claiming that the perpetrator of a stabbing attack in Ireland that led to riots in Dublin was not an immigrant but an Irish citizen. The report cited BBC’s unnamed sources that claimed that the perpetrator was an Irish citizen who lived in the country for 20 years. As per the BBC’s report, the claims of him being a foreign national were “false” as the man lived in Ireland for 20 years and had Irish citizenship. However, the Washington Post published only the half-truth. In reality, the man was originally...

    North Virginia doctor Siavash Sobhani stated he was in “shock” after a State Department official allegedly told him his U.S. citizenship was stripped over a bureaucratic reason, according to The Washington Post. Sobhani, 61, who specializes in internal medicine, received a letter from a State Department official after applying for a new passport in February, according to the outlet. What the north Virginia doctor received, however, was not what he expected as he had gone through the passport renewal process several times previously without any issues. Sobhani was informed he should have never been granted citizenship in the first place...

    The Washington Post threw a temper tantrum over “far-right economist” Javier Milei sending a shockwave throughout the world with his victorious presidential bid against leftist Economy Minister Sergio Massa in Argentina. The Post attempted to denigrate Argentina’s president-elect as a “Trump-like radical” with “no governing experience” who rode a “wave of voter rage” to victory with 56 percent of the vote. The rag characterized Milei’s win as a “stunning upset” over Massa, “the center-left economy minister who has struggled to resolve the country’s worst economic crisis in two decades.” Oh, who knew that voters didn’t want to reward the government...

    A half-century before Donald Trump dismissed the four criminal cases against him as a “witch hunt,” a defensive President Richard M. Nixon famously declared, “I’m not a crook.” Nixon made the comment 50 years ago Friday, on Nov. 17, 1973, at Disney World in Florida as the Watergate scandal was swirling around him. It came a month after the Saturday Night Massacre, when Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus resigned rather than carry out Nixon’s order to fire Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox. Then Solicitor General Robert Bork fired Cox. Now Nixon was addressing 400 people...

    A Washington Post reporter has published an article declaring his endorsement for Hollywood actor and former WWE wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for president in 2024. Washington Post deputy opinion editor David Von Drehle argues in a new column that Johnson is the best nominee for president. “For four years, I have been saying to anyone who will listen — not many people, I must admit — that America has a sure and happy pathway out of the doom loop of Biden vs. Trump, Trump vs. Biden, seemingly for the rest of eternity,” Von Drehle writes. “Johnson is that pathway....

    An attorney for one of former President Donald Trump's co-defendants in the Fulton County district attorney's 2020 election interference case admitted at a hearing Wednesday that he had shared witness proffer videos of key figures in the case with a media outlet, saying he thought it was in his client's interest to do so. Jonathan Miller, an attorney for Misty Hampton, made the confession during an emergency hearing for a protective order that was prompted by the publication of parts of the video statements of Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Kenneth Chesebro and Scott Hall by ABC News and The Washington...

    With every hour that passes, Donald Trump’s grip on the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nomination grows tighter. Every day in which his opponents aren’t gaining ground on his position is a day in which he gets nearer to appearing on the ballot next November and nearer to possibly being inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2025.
  • Home schooling’s rise from fringe to fastest-growing form of education: A district-by-district look at home schooling’s explosive growth, which has far outpaced the rate at private and public schools

    11/02/2023 10:23:13 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 30 replies
    Home schooling has become — by a wide margin — America’s fastest-growing form of education, as families from Upper Manhattan to Eastern Kentucky embrace a largely unregulated practice once confined to the ideological fringe, a Washington Post analysis shows. The analysis — based on data The Post collected for thousands of school districts across the country — reveals that a dramatic rise in home schooling at the onset of the pandemic has largely sustained itself through the 2022-23 academic year, defying predictions that most families would return to schools that have dispensed with mask mandates and other covid-19 restrictions. The...
  • The Washington Post Democracy Dies in Darkness <p> Arkansas governor's $19,000 lectern remains out of sight, but not out of mind with audit underway

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — From targeting Chinese-owned farmland to banning gender-neutral terms like “pregnant people” from state documents, Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders has rolled out announcements in recent weeks in quick succession, cheered on by her Republican base. Washington — has also fielded questions from behind a lectern at the state Capitol. But it’s the lectern she’s not using — a $19,000 purchase that’s led to an audit and claims her office illegally altered public records — that remains a problem for the first-term governor. That lectern hasn’t been seen at Sanders’ public events, and the governor’s office...

  • Charlottesville’s Robert E. Lee statue has met its end, in a 2,250-degree furnace.

    It was a choice to melt down Robert E. Lee. But it would have been a choice to keep him intact, too. So the statue of the Confederate general that once stood in Charlottesville — the one that prompted the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in 2017 — was now being cut into fragments and dropped into a furnace, dissolving into a sludge of glowing bronze. Six years ago, groups with ties to the Confederacy had sued to stop the monument from being taken down. Torch-bearing white nationalists descended on the Virginia college town to protest its removal, and one...

    Cordell Cox has volunteered for a Democrat in every presidential race since Barack Obama’s 2008 run. Next year, he might sit it out. Cox, a 33-year-old in Michigan, said he’ll probably still cast a ballot for President Biden if he’s the Democratic nominee. But, Cox said, he won’t work to increase turnout and fears that some of his friends will choose a third-party candidate or decline to vote altogether. To them, Biden’s handling of the violence in Israel and Gaza has been unacceptable. As the White House advocates for sending $14 billion in aid to Israel, Cox and his like-minded...

    A Washington Post columnist who once led the paper’s international opinions section lent support this week to those kidnapping, raping, and killing Israeli citizens. Karen Attiah, a prominent journalist, echoed a social media post by a fringe Somali that said, “what did y’all think decolonization meant? vibes? papers? essays? losers.” The X post suggests that those on the Left who bandy about terms like “decolonization” but don’t support the terrorism of Hamas are hypocrites, and that that is exactly what the leftist academics are pushing for with that language. She reposted someone else elaborating on that same thought: “All my...

    The old rule about incumbents was that if they are under 50 points in approval, they're toast. President Joe Biden is under 40. There's almost no chance he's going to win. I've never heard of an incumbent polling under 40 points who went on to win reelection. When it comes to Joe Biden, three in six recent polls had him in the thirties. In one recent poll, President Biden was at an abysmal 32 percent. MAGA should be doing everything they can to keep Biden in the race. He's their only hope. President Biden needs to step down immediately and...
