"Morality is based on respect for your fellow human being. If you remember that one idea, then you need not bother memorizing endless lists of arbitrary rules and laws. You will know what is right and wrong." --- Michael Rivero
Embattled San Francisco Mayor London Breed is proposing new legislation requiring low-income residents to undergo substance abuse screening and treatment in order to receive welfare.
She said the move was necessary to combat the city’s drug and homeless crisis.
“We need to make a significant change,” Breed said at a news conference Tuesday.
“No more ‘anything goes’ without accountability, no more handouts without accountability,” she added.
Under Breed’s proposal, individuals with a suspected drug problem would be required to participate in substance abuse screenings or treatment programs funded by the San Francisco Human Services Agency, according to FOX News.
Treatments would include a range of interventions, including residential treatment, medically assisted treatment, outpatient options and abstinence-based treatments to be decided based on the needs of the individual.
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) happens to babies, from 1 month to 1 year in age, but most frequently between 2 and 4 months of age.
Recently I interviewed a former police detective who handled over 250 SIDS cases for a major US city. She revealed her full name and I was able to independently verify her employment at the police department.
In the interview, she revealed that 50% of the SIDS cases happened within 48 hours after a vaccine was given and about 70% of the cases happened within one week of a vaccine.
This can only mean one thing: that the childhood vaccines are the leading cause of SIDS deaths.
There is no other explanation.
Even her pediatrician acknowledged this, but they aren’t allowed to talk about it. She said that the American Academy of Pediatrics trains the pediatricians in how to gaslight parents who seek to blame the vaccine.
This is the first time these statistics have ever been revealed publicly.
Hunter Biden sued Rudy Giuliani on Tuesday, alleging the former lawyer of President Trump played a central role in the “total annihilation” of Biden’s digital privacy and data related to his infamous laptop computer.
Former chair of the Federal Communications Commission Ajit Pai ripped into plans by his former agency to reintroduce “net neutrality” regulations, saying that they were unnecessary and an “utter waste of time.”
On Tuesday, New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron ruled that former President Trump is liable for “persistent fraud” after the New York State Attorney General’s Office (OAG) said Trump had prepared, certified, and submitted to lenders false and misleading financial statements. Trump responded by condemning the ruling as “Democrat Political Lawfare.”
Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis criticized former President Donald Trump during an interview Tuesday night, saying that the former president needed to show up to this week’s GOP primary debate to defend his record as president.
The American soldier who fled into North Korea two months ago is in US custody on a plane that has departed Chinese airspace, a senior Biden administration official told DailyMail.com.
Army Private Travis King, 23, was transferred to US custody in China on Wednesday, and is being flown to an undisclosed US military base, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss King's status.
The person said that the US had made no concessions to secure King's release, which North Korea announced in a surprise move after apparently treating his case as a violation of immigration law.
'King appears to be in good health and good spirits as he makes his way home,' said another official, who said that Sweden had mediated the soldier's release, and that China had assisted with logistics in the transfer, but played no diplomatic role.
After U.S. President Joe Biden told his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, on September 21 that a new shipment of arms would arrive in Ukraine "next week," Zelenskiy replied that the package has "exactly what our soldiers need now."
Headlining the new delivery is the first shipment of U.S.-made Abrams tanks, which will presumably arrive with their controversial ammunition of 120 mm depleted uranium rounds.
Depleted uranium (DU) is a byproduct of the process to enrich uranium for use in nuclear fuel or weapons. The United States has vast stocks of the material, which is essentially nuclear waste that is 60 percent as radioactive as raw uranium. Beginning in the 1970s, the material began to be tested in sabot rounds -- dart-like projectiles fired from tank cannons designed to pierce the solid slabs of frontal armor used in Soviet tanks of the time.
The advantages of DU as an armor-piercing projectile are many, as are the controversies that have persistently surrounded its use.
Uranium is the heaviest naturally occurring element on Earth. A 10-centimeter cube of the metal weighs around 20 kilograms, giving it virtually unstoppable momentum and, when alloyed with small amounts of titanium, DU acquires steel-like strength.
Anti-Ulez 'Blade Runners' have ramped up their campaign of vandalism trashing yet another one of Sadiq Khan's mobile 'spy' vans used to enforce London's Ultra Low Emission Zone.
Activists opposed to Mr Khan's flagship policy - which last month expanded to cover the entire city - have already attacked hundreds of cameras prompting the London Mayor to roll out a fleet of vehicles to catch those flouting the rules.
But these too have become a target, with opponents to the Ulez - who call themselves 'Blade Runners' - slashing their tyres, spray painting cameras or blocking the vans in with large vehicles.
New York City‘s elites were pranked by a group of Generation Zer’s in a one-night only fake steakhouse meal that had the city’s A-listers believing, for a moment, they were part of an exclusive group picked to dine at this restaurant that didn’t exist.
President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, allegedly received wires sent from inside communist China for more than a quarter of a million dollars in 2019 that listed Joe Biden’s home in Delaware as the address for the beneficiary of the money.
Wael Hana, an Egyptian national who was indicted last week on corruption charges with Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), was arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Tuesday and later made his initial appearance in court.
Germany saw its first-time asylum requests rise by 78% in the first seven months of 2023, according to official data. In August, registered illegal border crossings to Germany reached 14,701, up 66% on the same month last year, police data shows.
The new controls will see an increase in policing along 'smuggling routes', and would begin immediately, Berlin official said today.
Announcing the new measures on Wednesday, German interior minister said more should be done to protect the European Union's fragile system of open borders.
'If we do not succeed in better protecting the external borders ..., then open borders within the EU are in danger,' Nancy Faeser told reporters in Berlin.
Target announced plans to shut down nine stores across four different U.S. states after ongoing reports of violence, theft, and organized retail crime have threatened the safety of shoppers and employees.
Tennessee lawmakers are looking at rejecting federal dollars for public education and replacing them with state dollars in a move that would make Tennessee the first in the nation to turn down federal education funding.
Hyundai and Kia are recalling nearly 3.4 million vehicles in the U.S. and telling owners to park them outside due to the risk of engine compartment fires.
The recalls cover multiple car and SUV models from the 2010 through 2019 model years including Hyundai's Santa Fe SUV and Kia's Sorrento SUV.
Documents posted Wednesday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say the anti-lock brake control module can leak fluid and cause an electrical short, which can touch off a fire while the vehicles are parked or being driven.
The automakers are advising owners to park outdoors and away from structures until repairs are done.
Dealers will replace the anti-lock brake fuse at no cost to owners. Kia says in documents that it will send notification letters to owners starting Nov. 14. For Hyundai the date is Nov. 21.
Seven types of the cholesterol-busting pills, including all five dished out in the UK, have been linked to myasthenia gravis — a long-term muscle-weakening condition that can be life-threatening in severe cases.
Patients taking the once-a-day pill should watch out for symptoms including droopy eyelids, double vision and difficulty swallowing, the medicines watchdog warned.
The space agency is set to decommission the orbiting laboratory in 2031 due to stresses on the structure that have accumulated over time.
NASA will pay any company that creates a 'space-tug' design, a craft powerful enough to pull the ISS from its orbit and send it toward our planet.
The agency is calling the space tug a US Deorbit Vehicle (USDV), which will nudge the ISS from 175 miles above Earth's surface to about 75 miles, where it will begin its final descent into the Pacific Ocean.
Intended to mirror the famed OpenAI tech, the Central Intelligence Agency's latest initiative will use artificial intelligence to help analysts better access open-source intelligence, agency officials said.
The CIA's Open Source Enterprise division developed the tech, which is also intended to be rolled out across the US government's 18 intelligence agencies in an effort to rival China's growing intelligence capabilities.
'We’ve gone from newspapers and radio, to newspapers and television, to newspapers and cable television, to basic internet, to big data, and it just keeps going,' said Randy Nixon, director of the CIA's AI division.
Nixon noted that analyzing the level of data across the web is a significant challenge that the AI program would help handle, adding: 'We have to find the needles in the needle field.'
Woke astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson lost his mind and started shouting after a pair of British satirists tore apart his support for men participating in women’s sports.
As Fox News reported, Tyson discussed transgenderism on “TRIGGERnometry”, a free speech YouTube show run by British satirists Konstantin Kisin and Francis Foster.
The video starts with Kisin telling Tyson “”One of your functions over time has been to communicate scientific knowledge to the public.”
An animated Tyson then posed a scenario where gender would play no role in sports but rather it would be decided based on hormone levels. Kisin responded by giving the scientist a simple education lesson.
Well, hold on a second. The difference is the difference is physiologically between men and women is not just hormonal. Women have a different hip angle. They have different heart capacities. They have different lung capacity. I mean, there are profound physiological differences, different bone density.
