Original Article

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk, 11/4/2019 2:10:14 PM

Gulf News reports that Subhash Yadav, 42, died after attempting to eat 50 eggs in the Jaunpur district of Uttar Pradesh, India on Monday. According to police, Yadav and a friend were at the Bibiganj market getting a bite to eat when the two began to argue. The subject of their conflict is unknown, but it somehow escalated into Yadav betting his companion 2,000 rupees (a little over $28) that he could down 50 eggs there and then. The duo purchased 50 hard-boiled eggs from a vendor and Yadav set to it. He was making good time up until his 41st egg.

The Daily Signal, the Heritage Foundation’s investigative reporting, news, and commentary outlet, says that one of their videos, a YouTube testimonial from a pediatrician about gender transition surgery for children, was censored by YouTube for “hate speech.” According to the Daily Signal’s Kate Trinko, the group’s 2017 video starring Dr. Michelle Cretella, “pediatrician with many years’ experience and the executive director of the American Academy of Pediatricians,” was pulled off YouTube because, in the video, Cretella suggested that, “if you want to cut off a leg or an arm you’re mentally ill, but if you want to cut off healthy breasts or a penis, you’re transgender.”

Omar initially filed for divorce last month, and court records confirmed that it was finalized Tuesday.

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer survived yet another week on the celebrity ballroom dancing competition show, “Dancing with the Stars,” triggering yet another leftist meltdown on social media — and this time, mainstream media, including CNN and the New York Times, joined in in an effort to explain the phenomenon. Spicer is notoriously untalented, and has continually surprised the show’s judges and hosts with his staying power, which most watchers attribute to fans of President Donald Trump, who are voting to keep Spicer on the show, even if they aren’t actually watching him dance. ”

Asked about the incident, Lifesite News reported Biden's response: “It’s not a position that I’ve found anywhere else, including from the Holy Father, who gives me Communion.” So instead of thinking about the priest's position and offering some kind of contemplative thought, Biden declared it was all O.K. to be advocating for abortion from his position,

John Durham may be the most consequential and least known figure in Washington right now. In May, U.S. attorney general William Barr selected Durham, a longtime prosecutor with a résumé so sterling it nearly glows, to investigate the origins of the special counsel’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether it was properly predicated. Some Trump fans believe there was a vast effort by a “deep state” of high-ranking intelligence and law-enforcement officials to smear Trump or hinder his campaign by creating a perception of corrupt ties to Russia. In late October, the New York Times quoted unnamed sources who said that Durham’s probe
