Republican lawmakers in Kentucky on Wednesday overturned the governor's veto of a bill to ban transgender youths from gender-affirming healthcare and restrict which toilets they use in public schools, voting in line with a national conservative-led movement.
LAURA INGRAHAM: Where's the manifesto? We're getting out first answers tonight. According to the New York Post, and we just learned this moments ago, that Hale's writings could be released, but only after the FBI analyzes — and we assume scrubs — some of the content. As we told you last night in Instagram messages to an old teammate minutes before the massacre, Hale said she left behind "more than enough evidence" and that one day "this will make more sense." Well, predictably, LGBTQ groups are desperately lobbying to keep it all under wraps. Media outlets, which are supposed to be interested in actual facts, are oddly subdued about the prospect of learning more about the killer's motives. Now, we have no idea what was in Ms. Hale's mind, why she targeted The Covenant School, but it is clear that if this is a case of anti-Christian hate, we all should know all about it, including how it was inspired. And no matter what her writings contain, they should be aired publicly and in full. We don't want some sanitized version.
A conservative nonprofit group founded by former Trump administration Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said it poured about $9 million into state elections last year, backing nearly 200 candidates. Now, some of those candidates are pushing a wave of legislation boosting DeVos’ longtime goal: subsidizing private schools with public dollars.
Using at least $2.5 million from DeVos and her husband, the American Federation for Children has played a pivotal role in getting what supporters call “school choice” policies passed into law in at least three states and introduced in several more, according to current and former GOP legislators, lobbyists for teachers unions and academics.
The nonprofit group has found success amid a 20-year low in approval for the K-12 education system and after two years of protests over lessons involving race and LGBTQ identity. It is now on the verge of ushering in a transformation in how large swaths of the country fund schools.
States are taking measures to crack down on tranq dope, the street drug that combines the animal tranquilizer xylazine with fentanyl or heroin and can cause users to develop horrific wounds and even require amputations.
Ohio just became one of the first states to restrict xylazine, with Gov. Mike DeWine signing an emergency order making it a Schedule III controlled substance on Wednesday.
The order classifies xylazine as a drug with a moderate-to-low potential for physical and psychological dependence but makes it illegal for most people to possess it. Veterinarians can still administer xylazine but need to obtain a special license first.
Now is the time to unite.
Just before Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi took the stage at the Human Rights Campaign Dinner in Los Angeles, the esteemed congresswoman spoke with The Advocate on the event's red carpet.
"Take pride in what you have done. Look at what has been done by showing our pride. Pat yourself on the back. Let's be hopeful from the success we've had and the love we have shown each other and that's what we have to do for the trans community now, especially the children. There's very hateful things that the other side is cooking up," Pelosi says.
The 28-year-old shooter who killed three children and three adults at a Christian elementary school in Nashville, Tenn., on Monday had been under the care of a doctor for an “emotional disorder,” police said.
Nashville Metro Chief John Drake told reporters on Tuesday that Audrey Elizabeth Hale “was under care — doctor’s care — for an emotional disorder,” but did not disclose further details about the nature of that disorder. Hale was killed by police on scene.
“Law enforcement knew nothing about the treatment she was receiving. But her parents felt that she should not own weapons,” Drake said.
The shooter was initially described by police as a teenager and then as a 28-year-old white woman. It was later revealed that Hale was transgender, though police have referred to the shooter by gender assigned at birth.
Police also revealed that Hale had purchased seven firearms at five different local gun stores — all legally. Hale’s parents told police they knew Hale had bought and sold one weapon, but were apparently unaware that Hale had been hiding additional weapons at home.
Black Californians are owed $800 billion for reparations due to generations of over-policing, disproportionate incarceration and housing discrimination, according to economists who are working with the state panel considering the payments.
A previous model, announced earlier this month, estimated that $640 billion would be due in payments to black residents in the Golden State.
In their report, the consultants suggest the state task force 'err on the side of generosity' and consider a down-payment with more money to come as more evidence becomes available.
‘MAYDAY! Mayday!’ is something no airline pilot wants to say, and no passenger wants to hear, but this month Virgin Australia, Emirates, United and Southwest airlines have all turned back aircraft or made emergency landings because air crew have suffered serious health incidents. A British Airways pilot died of a heart attack just before he was due to fly a plane from Egypt.
The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to Kansas’s newly-drawn congressional map, giving Republicans a victory as the 2024 election inches closer.
In an unsigned order, the justices rejected an appeal from a group of voters in Kansas who argued that a lower court used the wrong legal standard in upholding the Republican-drawn congressional map.
“A state trial court had initially struck down the map, finding the legislature intentionally discriminated against minority voters because of their race in designing the congressional district boundaries. The map split Wyandotte County, which is home to Kansas City, and the challengers asserted the move eliminated the ability of minority voters to continue electing their preferred candidate. The state, meanwhile, argued the changes were necessary to respond to population growth in the area,” The Hill reported.
Researchers at George Chuch’s Harvard lab have genetically engineered a bacteria, E. coli, to be totally immune to viruses.
In addition to blocking every virus the team has challenged it with thus far, their E. coli has also been designed so that its modified genes cannot escape into the wild, which does indeed sound like the plot of a lost Michael Crichton novel. (In fact, the parallels to Jurassic Park are there, but we’ll get to that.)
“We believe we have developed the first technology to design an organism that can’t be infected by any known virus,” genetics research fellow and study author Akos Nyerges said.
“We can’t say it’s fully virus-resistant, but so far, based on extensive laboratory experiments and computational analysis, we haven’t found a virus that can break it.”
Biden regime dark forces pressured, bribed and bullied 12 UN Security Council nations to abstain from blaming hegemon USA for destroying 3 of 4 Russian Nord Stream II gas pipelines to Germany.
The empire of lies is infamous for policies detrimental to the lives and well-being of the vast majority of people worldwide.
At war on nonthreatening Russia for nearly a decade, hegemon USA may destroy planet earth and all its life forms by its megalomaniacal rage for unchallenged control.
As long as it exists in its present form under either wing of its war party, the state of the nation is jeopardized and world peace is off the table.
The new House oversight committee investigating the political weaponization of the Justice Department may want to bring on some additional staff and start putting in some overtime. Every new story that comes out about the FBI’s actions in recent years makes the Bureau look worse and worse. The latest story posted by our colleagues at PJ Media involves the ongoing “seditious conspiracy” charges being brought against leaders and members of the Proud Boys. The trial of chapter leader Zach Rehl was preparing to call a witness this week, but ran into a problem. Their “witness” turned out to be a confidential informant for the FBI who had been spying on the defense team. That brought the trial to a screeching halt “until these issues have been considered and resolved.” That’s putting it mildly, to say the least.
The first officer of a Virgin Australia regional flight from Adelaide to Perth reportedly became incapacitated after suffering a heart attack 30 minutes into the flight, according to an incident report by The Aviation Herald.
Also, a British Airways pilot reportedly collapsed just before his scheduled commercial flight from Cairo, Egypt to London’s Heathrow Airport.
According to reports, the veteran pilot suffered a heart attack in the crew’s hotel.
Although colleagues performed CPR on the pilot, he tragically passed away.
